BTW: I think one of th reasons LH puts SN under EW is their overall 'poor performance' businesswise, i.e. relatively few pax paying a premium travel fee.
The officially quoted reason is that SN has few long-haul routes and aircraft compared to LH, LX, and even OS.
When someone feeds you this BS, you never point out that OS has virtually as much widebodies as SN?

Confirmed. All future short and medium haul aircraft are now going to wear Eurowings livery.

Now as SFU seems to be active again from tomorrow on, will we see one more of the old A330s leaving the fleet now? Which one is due next?

- SFW leaves in september 19

Hi all,

Does anyone know how long installing the new cabin takes. The first one - SDF - took much longer than expected (for various reasons I guess), but normally it would take not more than one month, correct?

I guess first SFY will go since it was foreseen to let it go in April, but was extended a bit due to the problems with SFU.

Also, I read somewhere that they want to have 5 planes with the new interior by August. So that would mean they have to accelerate the process a bit and have one of the next months (June or July) two planes done in one month.

Just some assumptions ...

Cheers,
Danny

I thought they said 5 planes with premium economy installed by August, SFT & SFZ do not get the new interior, but their cabin is somewhat modified with premium economy I thought. So I think they will achieve this goal by August.

It took longer due to certification problems, actually my honest guess would be it takes about 25-30 days for one A/C.

OK, but they will not only install premium economy on the others. Five planes by August still means two should be refurbished at the same time, no?

Moreover, the fact that SFT and SFZ will not get a full new interior could be an indication they will also leave the fleet after 2020 ...

Just my 2 cents

Is there any special paint scheme planned for this particular plane then?
Because I thought there were already several of their planes in the colours of Eurowings flying, notably the Airbus 330?

the A330's flying in EW colors are / were for EW ops out of DUS
The A320 OO-SNN is the first of many EW A319/A320 in EW colors with a belgian reg
