Meanwhile, Turkish Airlines is allowed to fly 7 (!!) times per week to Kinshasa.
Indeed, but with a Boeing 737 MAX 8, the capacity is much lower than on SN's A330.

And I am sure that the Belgian diplomatic representation in Kinshasa is pushing the new President to grant additional slots to Brussels Airlines, as requested by Christina Foerster.
Does anybody know whether SN still have capacity in their current fleet of 10 A330's to operate any additional flights tot Kinshasa if those rights return? Or would that require/imply extra aircraft?
I tried to find out whether the extra flights to Dakar and Banjul this winter extended into the summer season but their online timetable did not provide any results. Any news on that? Or is all capacity from canceling Mumbai gone to Accra and Lomé?
Probably not, in the last months that I've been working at the airport they've had to delay or cancel a flight daily because they just don't have enough planes. I should state that this always happens because something goes wrong with one of the aircraft....so they may have enough of every aircraft is operational, but that doesn't seem to happen often!

Eurowings' 2x A343, operated by Brussels Airlines, will leave the fleet this year and will be replaced by 3x A333, also operated by Brussels Airlines.

The A333's will be sourced from Lufthansa, which will take back (and retire?) the A343's.

Brussels Airlines appoints Swiss national Edi Wolfensberger as Managing Director Operations, taking over from Thibault Demoulin, who will remain within the company as A330 pilot. Edi also joins the Board of Directors.

Another Belgian makes room for a Lufthansa guy.

Possible restrictions on Eurowings' wetlease flights to US (operated by Sun Express and Brussels Airlines) as of 30 March?

The US Department of Transport is threatening to restrict the number of wetlease flights operated for EU carriers, in a similar way as US wetlease flights are restricted in the EU. As of 30 March Eurowings flights operated by Sun Express and Brussels Airlines would no longer be permitted, unless the EU Member States agree on a liberalization of their policy on US wet-lease flights. This would mean that Eurowings has to deploy its own aircraft (Eurowings AOC). Also Lufthansa (flights operated by Cityline) and AerLingus (flights operated by ASL) would experience difficulties.

I have studied the document of the DOT. In my opinion, it only relates to eurowings operated by Sun Express flights.

Brussels Airlines introduced their new cabin with a touch of "Art Nouveau". This includes new seats for all classes, an overall new style of the cabin and a bar in the galley for the business class passengers.

I'm a bit (positively) confused: why would LH invest in an airline/brand they will kill in 2020?

The B747 cabin refit at British Airways was a 3 year project. At a certain point you are that far in and financially comitted so its not that easy anymore to pull the plug on it.

Long haul will remain SN I would imagine, the name is so well known in Africa. I always presumed that the name change was only for the Short Haul fleet anyway.

It's not because that lie is repeated hundred times, that it becomes the truth.
Lufthansa will not kill Brussels Airlines. Not the product, not the nv/sa.
Let me give you just one of the reasons: by controlling Brussels Airlines, they control Brussels Airport. And the most lucrative route to/from BRU.

That is correct, for the moment. But Footnote 14 indicates that the Brussels-Eurowings scheme may also come under the rule once operations have reached the 14 months aggregate duration. Authorisation will be limited to 14 months.

Since a few hours talk on website Airliners.net about SN to LAX and /or SFO. Did something concrete trigger this discussion? Thx.
