Cebu as a destination may not be a bad idea at all. You'd be amazed at how many Filipino nationals there are in Belgium.

Yes, but they fly with Thai Airways with special conditions.
Says who? And what are those 'special conditions' ?

Do you mean British Airways or Brussels Airlines? As both airlines happen to be referred to BA on this forum :)

British off course, to remplace 787s in need of maintenance, SN would rather cancel than call AB.

Says who ? :roll:
If often depends who long the aircraft is AOG.
I know that we couldn't use AB is the past as AB was not ( yet) IOSA certificated.

Air Belgium is hiring again, next to cabin crew/managers/assistants and coordinators, they are also looking for motivated pilots. With an accent on co-pilots.

And it's also showing in the BA booking tool on those days. 'Operated by:Air Belgium For British Airways'

Nice business for AB,I believe.

BA155/154 are usually or planned flown by a 788 or 789, it has:
788: 154+25+35 = 214 seats
789: 127+39+42+8 = 216 seats

AB's A340 has 264+21+18 for a total of 303 seats. Weren't there any better-suiting options, or is there maybe an increase in demand too?

I can only imagine the face of a diehard Brexit Yes voter having booked a "BA flight" and boarding an aircraft with AIR BELGIUM billboard titles !

Arrrgh .....
