Will the SFB got a "new" outside SN livery (eurowohite) or just a cabin fit ?
The Eurowings livery is quite fresh. I doubt it will be removed (remember: "Savings"!). And if it is changed, it will probably be a basic Eurowhite with minimal Brussels Airlines features: the titles and the tail. Reboot = savings!
Thanks. Yes it's logical.

@crew1990:
Outgoing
SFM-N-O-V have already left the fleet.

SFY will leave this month. SFW will leave in November. SNG in December. SFU early 2020.
SFZ in 2021 and SFT in 2022.

....
I flew back from Accra yesterday with SFW.
Someone a few seat rows in font of mine said he read that Whiskey was to be retired by the end of this month.

Then that would have been my "last whiskey" as my next week trip is postponed, leaving an odd chance to fly her on to OUA the week after.
Anybody to confirm this "early" retirement? Well, after 24.9 years of good service of course.

Her MSN 82 makes OO-SFW the oldest A330, after two Cathay Dragons. Though they seem to fly short routes so may have high cycles but possibly lower hours.

SNG in December.
Is that an A320 or a typo for an A330?

Will the 3x A330-200 be replaced by newer birds or does the fleet shrink?

Is there any news about it?

It is not a typo.
SFU (A330-200) will be replaced with SFH (A330-300). 2 A332 remain then in the fleet, SFZ and SFT. Which will also be replaced with A330-300 in due time, but this is not included in the current refleet program.
