BRU-GLA-BRU will be operated by a De Havilland Dragon Rapide or a Avro Anson, both in single class configuration (1-1).
The RJ-85 was originally intended but yesterday's UEFA announcement that both Celtic and Rangers would not qualify for future CL participation (due to lack of "original" players) has completely changed the prospects.

The US carriers are doing the rounds on European expansion in the spring for a decision in the fall, so plenty of time for rumours. However, AA is back in the frame and I expect some interesting 757 developments from NW if the project goes ahead.

The new SN route between BRU and GLA still needs to be confirmed officially by both SN Brussels Airlines and BAA-Glasgow, so I still have some questions:
*) Will BA codeshare on the route, just like on all other UK destinations SN serves?
What other partner airline(s) will put their code on the flight: IB?
*) a flight schedule with 'only' 9 weekly flights: does that indeed mean we will see 2 daily flights on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and one daily flight on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday like I have heard somewhere? (no flight on Saturday is already confirmed)
Is this just something temporarily for the start of the route over the quieter summer months and is SN going to increase to a double daily flight every day as from winter 2005 or what's the idea behind this proposed schedule (fill up the open slots in the timetable with connecting flights through LHR/LGW/MAN/BHX on BA)?

Yes I was expecting a BA codeshare as that seems to be BA's way of saying they serve Scotland, "Lets stick a codeshare on the AA ORD-GLA flight so we appear to offer long haul flights from a non-London airport" or something along those lines
Neutrality means that u don't really care cos the struggle goes on even when ur not there, blind and unaware
