Regarding the booking engine of SN, 4 of the 6 daily flights to MIL area (MXP+LIN) will be operated by CityJet SSJ100 from the start of the summer season, including the night stop flight

There were 1692 seats daily (6 A319), from the summer season there will be only 1348 seats (4 SSJ100 + 2 A319), so basically a decrease of 25,52%

I checked the seatmaps, No Q-suites! I Love the 77W, but i think this is a downgrade for the hard product over the A350.

A 777 is always a downgrade compared to an A350. In all classes!

Indeed, my April/May trip to Belgium has changed from A359 to 777/300 and no Q-suites, the classic 2/2/2 in J.

I heared today that Hainan would start Shenzen as from the 20th of March 2018.
Anyone who can confirm this? I know that there were plans to start as from july 2018.
Best regards,

If I understood well Shenzhen is the same has Hong Kong.
Is it because Cathay Pacific is starting Hong Kong that Hainan is reacting so fast?
Hasta la victoria siempre.

Not a very attractive schedule for business travellers, is it ? The only week trip that can be done is to leave Brussels on a Tuesday evening, arrive Wednesday early afternoon, but you already have to go back to the airport on Thursday morning to catch the return flight... Otherwise, you are stuck in Shenzhen for at least one weekend... Not ideal to attract business people, I would say...

I think the biggest victim of this all could be VLM, as they planned to start this route. Air Belgium would like to start Hong Kong if I'm not mistaken.

Good news. Could SN code-share with HU on this SZX new route? Or PVG? Even HKG with CX?
Cheers
