Those in favor of SABENA, because it would still be a recognised and respected brand in certain parts of Africa... It seems to me this is a kind of nostalgic, neo-colonial vision.
Who knows but IMO, the name of Sabena will not be recycled in the future.
It seems to me that Sabena has kept pace with the times, looking back at the nineties, eighties ... that it was synonymous with internationalism and respect.
Why should we fear then, even if the brand of Sabena was resurrected, that it would be associated with neo-colonialism?

Still... my bet on belgianwings... even if - of course - I would by far prefer the come back of the Sabena brand!
But who knows ? Retro is trendy... Sabena holds a strong héritage, for a bright future under the LH Group? What a buzz it could be ;-)
Btw... the last Sabena livery could still perfectly fit, don’t you think!?
S-tails back @ BRU!!!

And what do You thing ?
Better to keep a belgian touch in BRU for short and long haul and Eurowings air DUS
Or adopt Eurowings for all short haul across Europe , BRU, DUS etc
And another name for Long Haul ....also for all the EUrowings Group ?
The Belgian touch on the long haul part of Eurowings fliyng across The World , from BRU , DUS ....?
Seems to be «  un compromis à la belge » a win win combo

In my opinion, 2 brands @ BRU are not sustainable... It will be too fuzzy for the PAX, especially for those on connecting flights!

It’s the same as connecting to another airline of the same aliance, beside avgeeks not many people care about the name on the fuselage.

I don't agree with you, any marketer would tell you that a brand is not only a "name". The brand is reflecting the image of the company. Do you think the a French guy is not proud when he fly "Air France", for him Air France is synonyme of Quality, Premium, while Transavia is a low cost, even if the service was the same, he would still prefer fly Air France because of what the perception that he have with the brand. Same apply everywhere and Belgian are not different. By the way If you look at te mobilisation of the people on social network about what happened last weekend, you really see that people are attached to Brussels Airlines, the brand and everything around.

AF is actually a perfect example of the point I want to make: more and more Air France flights are done by Hop, Joon and Transavia. If it would have a negative financial impact they wouldn’t continue expanding Hop, Joon and Transavia. People book on AF’s website, how many notice the “operated by Hop”?
As for the reactions on social media, how many? 100000? That is only 1% of lasr year’s passengers, 25% others are frequent flyers or company contracts. The 74% others decide on price, if more than one airline is flying the same route.

Belgian politics! Some people in the North of the country dislike anything that carries the name "Belgian". That's also why the TV broadcaster BRT changed its name to VRT for example.
the same is true for RTBffffffff ;)

I believe there will indeed be an ‘operated by brussels airlines’ title on door 1L, like the sunexpress a330.

I hope so .. as it's on the Brussels Airlines registry .. at least on the inside it'll be shown on their safety cards.. but the outside needs that mentioning as well

It’s nothing new at TUI... happened before the MAX came, and the reason why there is no flag anymore is quite easy to understand. Crazy how a flag can be of an importance to some...
