It should be SNE...
SNA is Trident, SNB Rackham, SNC Magritte, SND Aerosmurf and SNF Amare...

Is OO-SFU experiencing problems again? It hasn't flown for more than a week. It has "just" spent over 3 weeks in Lisbon in February (assuming for maintenance).
I was at Brussels on Sunday, was still outside H41, not flying for now 2 weeks and half.

Lessor issue perhaps ?

One assumption, already read on this forum, could be visibility : most of their A330 are flying and are on the airfields essentially at night, at the opposite of the A319/A320 family.

Do you have a good source? Or is this just a wild guess on your side? SNJ was painted in SN livery just one year ago.

From what I've heard, it's going to be either SNG or SNE.

SNJ being in OSR (where other special liveries were applied), it was just a guess.

"Finally, Foerster confirmed that the airline will unveil another special livery aircraft in May 2019."

So ?

I don't remember which special livery it was, but there's one which has been made at EMA, right ?
TCV and TCH liveries have been made there as well.

Now you guys can say whatever you want, but I didn't expect another special livery with the integration into the eurowings group... Great news :o
BUT a bit strange, no?

Oosfu is still on ground because there is a shortage on the market of PW engines....

Which aircrafts will be retrofitted after the arrival of oo-sfd this week? Is there an overview?

Is there still a market of PW engines ? or is it a search on a market for used / recuperation parts ?

Just wondering, OO-SFB has been in brussels for a really long time now, is it going to be repainted soon in Brussels Airlines colors?

LOL only 2 weeks, repaint is not in the pipeline yet as they need all the planes in their daily operations ... especially with SFU being grounded

SFY won't go out if SFU is still not in service, if I have well understood ?

SFD is (was?) supposed to enter ops this week with the new interior. That would make a total of 10, even without SFU and SFY.

SFD will replace SFE or SFG, both already started operating with ex-SIA interior to ensure an 'on-time' phase-out of SFM/N/O, but were originally never intended to operate for SN with their old cabins. They are next up for the retrofit (1 by 1) as these cabins are the worst for customer experience (no lie-flat C class, limited spare parts of the SIA interior/IFE, etc.).
