Eurowings is restructuring (and shrinking) heavily but none of this is reflected in this topic.
As usual, airlines are prone to announce new routes, but seldom reveal which routes are axed. But when we know, we tell in the relevant topic, and most notably in this one.

Perhaps the moment to send back the A330 to SN. And end of DUS

A sentence questions me in the article. Long-haul traffic would be transferred from DUS to FRA and MUC. Would the 4 registered OO aircraft operated by SN remain based at DUS to insure 4 daily long haul under the name of the new LH "low cost"? Or DUS could loose all long haul flights ? Thx.

As I understand it, DUS ill keep some long-haul flights, but most of them will depart from FRA and MUC, where they can benefit from many more feeder flights than from DUS.

Some rumours are already leaking on who will operate the new long-haul flights of the new long-haul low-cost subsidiary:
  • LH Cityline, which has a few A340s, but high operating costs
  • SN and SunExpress, as is already the case now
  • A completely new AOC
  • And the surprise of the chef: Germanwings!
I wrote "rumours"...

CL is the least possible variant as its remaining 4 A343s are likely to be transferred back to LH in the spring. 3 of them will be repainted into standard LH colors.

The base of the long-haul fleet of SN is ten A330 (two -200 and eight -300 when SFU will be replaced by SFH currently in cabin works straight from HK to AMM). That's the fleet needed to operate the current schedule (let's say the peak of the summer 2020 ops) and everyone knows here that there are more chances that SN is to terminate some routes instead of opening new ones in 2020-21.

The four remaining A330-300 (K/L/P/J) are the ex-Lufthansa ones that won't get any retrofit (my understanding) and are meant to operate exclusively for EW (unless operational mayhem...). These four birds would inevitably leave SN's "books" if the EW/SN adventure is called off. A transfer of licence / registration / AOC is rather an easy thing to do for LH Group (at least easier than with Belgian CAA...).

I think that the new entity will merge SunExpress and Brussels Airlines "On behalf of Eurowings" into one new operator with one new brand (at the lowest cost...). It's not excluded that SN is going to win the tender, but I don't see that many crew bidding to commute with FRA and MUC in the long-term...

Currently, the long-haul Eurowings flights are operated by three different airlines: SunExpress, Brussels Airlines and CityLine. In an article of Handelsblatt today, Spohr says that by 2022 this will be consolidated into a single airline. The example to follow is Edelweiss. Methinks that it will not be SN....

The restructuration of Eurowings in DUS, remember the original plan was a 40 aircraft hub and spoke base, shows that hub and spoke at secondary airports is not a walk in the park.

Of course it won't be SN: the flights will be operated mostly from FRA and MUC; how could LH possibly tolerate that?

Thorsten Dirks is fired from Eurowings. The airline will be managed independently in the same way as the other Lufthansa Group airlines:

Where does CityLine operate flights for EW?

Interesting reading, not so much when it comes to the destinations and their schedules, but rather the framing: 'the Lufthansa group' and even 'lufthansa proper' are abundantly mentioned, with the flights merely 'operated by Eurowings'.

Lufthansa took over the sale of ALL Eurowings long-haul flights and increased the prices. The planes are still configured in Eurowings layout (more economy seats, fewer business seats), but Lufthansa clearly took the pilot's seat.
