I didn't see this coming

From March the 25th, Iberia coded flights operated by SABENA – Brussels Airlines will cease to operate. Every passenger booked on these flights has been reallocated onto other flights and their PNR handlers have been warned about these changes

IB-7000 coded flights cancelled from March 25th on are:

Bilbao – Bruselas – Bilbao
Barcelona – Bruselas – Barcelona
Madrid – Gothenburg – Madrid
Bruselas – Gothenburg – Bruselas
Bruselas – Hamburgo – Bruselas
Bruselas – Copenhague – Bruselas

Current schedule up to March 24th is to be operated normally

Source: IBeria Plus Newsletter

I now can see FF agreement going in the upcoming days....

Edited: Forgot to put the operating company

I guess this is a setback to SN joining Oneworld if this is true, though the cancelled flights don't make up all the SN flights marketed by IB.

I don't work for SN neither IB so I can't comment on the inner workings of these airline companies but as a customer who regularly uses SN service, from the things I've seen come out of the SN / TV merger I'm rather disappointed with these changes (IB partnership pullout, frequent flyer miles changes, removal of business class to most European destinations). From my personal perspective as SN customer, the only good thing I've heard come out of the entire SN / TV merger is a potential start of a direct service from BRU to either YUL or YYZ.

As for the SN / IB changes, I better cancel my SN Brussels Airlines Privilige Frequent Flyers Card and get an Iberia Oneworld Membership  Wink

Yes, i know, but that's what the newsletter says: (spanish only)
http://www.iberia.com/ibcomv3/content/CAMPAIGNS/0702/clasica_web.html

Onthe other hand you may check out the iberia.com timetable and see how there are no IB7000 flights operated by SN from 24th-March onwards, including the above routes and others such as MAD-BRU, SVQ-BRU.....

I'm also confident that the merger is the reason. Let's wait and see if things sort out...

BRU-YYZ already exists with SN flight number albeit operated by Etihad Airways..

What a pity!

IB/SN code-share is successful.

This look like cut the SN's way towards an oneworld membership  Sad



Time flies! Enjoy life!

Well there's still a lot of speculation about all this. While flights are in existence between BRU and YYZ right now, I saw a few posts somewhere which say that Ethiad is going to discontinue to AUH-BRU-YYZ and rather fly direct AUH-BRU and direct AUH-YYZ, which is why there's a lot of talk about SN Brussels Airline's supposed new North American destination (potentially YUL or YYZ).

As for SN's long haul expansion, I just saw a post on the Belgian aviation forum "Luchtzak" showing pictures of SN's fouth A330-300 arriving at BRU today (this is the one that used to belong to Air Madrid), looks like a nice bird! They'll probably start using this one on the African destinations and who knows sometime to North America! Here's the link to the post I came across:
