Yeah, I flew on them BRU-LAX and OAK-BRU back in 1998.
I must say I really liked them. They had a good inflight product (as far as I can remember), the service was always good, and they had a really nice innovative livery.
They went bankrupt a couple of months before SN 'died' as well, back in 2001. Now, if I remember correct, the bankruptcy of CityBird lead to the creation of Thomas Cook Belgium. Thomas Cook preferred to let CityBird die and create a brand-new airline from scratch than saving them and having a financially unhealthy airline.
