I don't think it's a good idea for an airline to upset a lot of their clients in the north. After all, Brel is the singer from "...Messieurs les Flamingants, Je vous emmerde...."
As Passenger points out, he has, in fact, on his last album sung "The flamingants" but he is the best-known Belgian singer "outside the border" and has marvelously sung Belgium and Flanders in particular, it seems to me. "The flat country" is more the northern party than the southern part ... it speaks only of Flanders and it is simply beautiful and it is a francophone who says it ... we'll see!

Refurbishing and check
Rather a global shortage of the required PW engines, resulting in a prelonged AOG of SFU... They probably use the ground time to do some other stuff (but it's not getting the new interior for example), but that's not the primary reason it's been on the ground for so long now.

Is it still a result of the fuel contamination of last December at Kinshasa Airport ?

Not that I know. Engines also need heavy maintenance once in a while, or quicker if detailed inspections reveal things that make it risky or too unsafe to continue operations with that engine. There are for the moment too many PW engines in such heavy maintenance for too long causing a shortage of these engines on the market. It's not an SN or SFU -specific issue.

Non-flamingants probably don’t care at all about this song, I guess.

Air Nostrum and Sepla reach an agreement that puts an end to the pilot strike. The company will recover most of the flights canceled on Wednesday 17. The flights on days 22, 23 and 24 will be operated as normal. Complete information in: http://www.airnostrum.es/page.asp?ruta= ... o=Noticias

No more Laatste Nieuws nor De Morgen on board since 1 April and that is not a joke! 😡
KLM: no more newspapers onboard as from 1st May 2019. Reason: passengers prefer own IFE / own smartphone, tablet or laptop 'distraction'. Once onboard, they don't read printed newspapers anymore.

Het Laatste Nieuws is not a big loss, but De Morgen is a quality paper.
Both HLN and DM are from the same editor ànd from the same news desk. Dual desk due to an ongoing drop in sales of newspapers, and thus drop in advertisement revenu. Given the numbers of newspaper sales and website visitors, HLN is a bigger loss then DM. And DM is no quality newspaper. Actually, apart from De Tijd (perhaps), there are no quality newspapers in Flanders anymore. Based upon subjective parameters international news first, strict separation news and opinion, limited sports news and no pulp. Example of pulp in De Morgen, online now: "In Venezuela maken ze de beste tieten ter wereld". Venezuela makes the best boobies in the world...

And how much SN has to pay for this ?
Doesn't make sense to keep wet leasing planes instead of just getting more planes.
Unless they want SN to fail, I suppose.
It's not just high season, one of the CSA planes is all year..

How about SN needed capacity "right now" with CSA and Eurowings giving them the best offer they could get?

I also read in the Aviation24-post on the Germanwings/Eurowings-lease this plane will continue to be based at Hamburg Airport and operate on the Hamburg-Brussels route. That sounds like a smart move to me.

When it comes to the CSA-birds, I'm pretty sure they will visit their home base quite often allowing line maintenance (or an A-check should that be needed). Furthermore these CSA-birds seem to be leased on behalf of Eurowings, so the short-term leasing charges might be taken as a Eurowings Group cost.

When you ask me, the SSJ-issues have a further impact on 2019's summer season. E.g. service to Stockholm Bromma is operated exclusively by A319's.

Time will tell what Eurowings Group's plans are with SN's A319/A320 fleet :)

That amounts to admitting that others are better than yourself at your core business: operating airliners at best economy. For a short-time urgency it may be the best solution but a year-long contract is a very bad sign.

And if I may join the off-topic subject of Mr. Brel: "Les flamandes" and "Les flamingants" were written when he was a sick man already, one must mainly pity him in that stage. I have no problem in seeing a great artist in him, in his good days, though at the same time a spoilt brat and a despicable "enfant de bourgois". Yes yes, he refuted the bourgoisie, it didn't keep him from spending the family capital in Brussels luxury brothels, very much "the prodigal son". Few know, and fewer will say aloud, he was first recognised and supported by Flemish "Radio Hasselt" as it was called at the time...

Well they are because of the belgian labour costs and the near slave contracts of EW. Basically hiring in cheap capacity without having to provide the social package for extra employees. Exactly what they blamed Ryanair for not even that long ago.

Youy may wiki him as much as you like, but fact remains that he is a contraversial person in the north by a large part of the population. Commercially wise, that fact excludes him for a promotial campaign.

A Brussels Airlines icon must be rocognizable for their international clientele. Example: cultural cities in Belgium. Example: The Atomium.
