Eurowings will keep (and even strengthen) long-haul activities. But the "commercial responsibility" for these flights will be transferred to network airlines. Flights from DUS will be operated by Brussels Airlines, flights from Frankfurt and Munich by SunExpress.

Thus nothing changes for SN at DUS.
Nothing changes, except that the two A340s will be replaced by A330s, a process that has already started for one of them.

The long-haul future for Eurowings with 11 A330s is explained hereunder:

So the Ansett member predicts CS will sell SN ...one day... but to whom?
And the PttU member thinks that LH only keeps SN ...making money...so that another operator does not land at BRU and threatens LH!
Two opposing strategies ...two strategies that do not help the development of BRU...
Not necessarily opposing: when SN isn't profitable for LH, I don't know what they will do: a little bit of loss-making might be the cost of keeping competition at bay, but how much?

And no, those strategies do not help the development of BRU, but that's not of any concern to LH.
You're right, LH doesn't care about BRU, but BAC does and they could prospect outside SN, LH or even the entire Star Alliance. BAC doesn't care about LH accept for them (or subsidiary SN) bringing in pax and revenue. And basicly BAC doesn't care where that revenue is coming from. I can imagine LH doesn't want to give up on a pretty nice market just outside Germany, nor do they want to open up their west flank to competitors. And on top of that I can imagine UA as both a Star Alliance and A++ partner - being a Star big shot as well - would like to risk jeopardizing a pretty lucrative BRU operation as well.

So all in all I don't believe LH would just give up on BRU but SN has to up its game.

Rumours have it SN will remain an 'in between' airline having to many leisure ops to be considered a full premium airline but to much of a network portfolio to be considered low cost.
