Not during the whole summer season, in early May, we can find an A321neo LR flight (via their booking sys). :D

3 brands all right, but isn't Air Transat part of Air Canada too now?
In that case, it's pretty much irrelevant who you'd fly with as these flights all fall unter the A++ joint venture, sharing all costs and revenues as if they were one single airlines?
or is Air Transat's purchase not completed yet?
Any updates on that?

I'm not really into this, but i think it matters who you are flying with. Air Transat is a lowcost airline, so you will pay less if you fly them, but the flight will also be les comfortable in comparison with Air Canada, whom will cost more to fly.

Transavia to postpone its 2020 launch to 2021, due to COVID-19 outbreak.

if anyone's wondering, Transavia France route from Montpellier and Brussels is maintained, with the first flight on 5 April 2020.

I checked about 30 minutes ago and these flights were still bookable from 5 April, we will see if this postpone will happen, which seems to be probable.

For Transavia France MPL-BRU route, there's a launch flight on 5 April (good luck to get home thereafter from MPL!), and then the next flight is on 30 April.

You're not correct about this: https://www.tijd.be/dossiers/coronaviru ... 909#729288

According to De Tijd:
During the week, cargo flights doos not have restrictions for night flights at BRU
And also, Brussels is not giving fines at the moment for the noise restriction.
