That's true for the Belgians, but for the British it's the opposite!

Yes, but for the connections: in several cases: BA flights left BRU too late to have enough time for a connection in LGW.

And it's also better if you want to do a day-spottingtrip to LGW ;)

With connections in LGW, I meant the several connections to the US.

Several flights operate from LGW, not from LHR (for example ATL I believe, would have to look it up).

Correct. Flights to ATL (bith DL and BA) depart from LGW, a legacy of the former BR (British Caledonian) which had all its intercontinental flights from LGW. The flight to ATL was once operated by a Sabena B747 BRU-LGW-ATL codeshared with BR.

Also some (not all) flights to IAH, DFW, LAS, LAX, PIT leave from LGW.

From the point of view of someone British, those schedules are okay if you wish to fly on days between Monday and Friday, you can leave in the morning from LGW and return in the afternoon from BRU. That's what I always used to do when I flew with Sabena - always out on SN2174 (10.55 departure from MAN to land in BRU at 13.15) and always back on SN2177 (left BRU at 14.45 and landed in MAN at 15.05). Those times suited me down to the ground, better than VG from LCY-BRU.
Sabena and Sobelair - gone but never forgotten.

This is what i found on the SN Brussels online timetable.
The BIAC timetable mentions that SN2121 is operated with an A319.
I just received the September issue of the OAG Executive Flight Guide, and they mention an A319 for SN2121 and an Avro RJ100 for SN2129.

Does SN BA expect such a high LF on both flights?

And, of course, no codeshare with BA...

Good luck SN !!!

As far as I've seen on the SNBA crew scheduling the LGW flight is combined with BCN so it should be the A319 operating on at least one of the flights.

May be Luchtzak cna confirm ??

Combined with BCN :?: Does that mean some flights will leave BRU to BCN via LGW :roll:

Hi,

No, I think he means that the crew who flies to BCN with the A319 will also do the flight to LGW (with the A319).
Is it that what you means , FB?

Greetings

Correct Airbuske !

But I am not convinced that they use an A319 as British Airways suspended the flight as 'non profiteable' with their B737's .... I rather expected an RJ on both daily flights ....

From what I heard the flights operated by BA (B737's) had approximately 60 people inside.
Since this isn't profitable for a B737 and that BA didn't had the opportunity to make the flight with smaller planes, they decided to stop that route.

But with Avro's the route could be profitbale IF SN manages to have approximately 60 people in its planes. It would have been better if BA would have codeshared the flight :? Anyway, I just hope the very best for SN :wink:

Why would anyone take SN to LGW if they did not fly BA, which gives them many more opportunities to connect in LGW?
