Continental Airlines who has a daily flight with a 767-200 from EWR to BRU and back will upgrade this service to a Boeing 767-400. The 767-400 is been at BRU before. Continentals first flight back to BRU after 9/11 was operated by a 767-400. I do not have any details but have been told that the bigger plane would be used very soon.

It has litlle to do with a possible code share agreement with SNBA. Loads are ussually packed on their 767-200s and Delta has removed their flight to JFK from the morning 10.50AM to the afternoon 1.15PM.

Manni, thanks for sharing the good news.
Keep them coming those rejoicing annoucements.
I have to confess that I've never seen a B764.
Of course, I'm looking forward to spot this new model in the Brussels airspace, however -honestly speaking- I would have been more excited to welcome CO DC10's again rather than a new 767 variant (which probably rotates after about 500 meters and which makes less noise than a lawn mower).
By the way, I noticed that CO is code-sharing with KL on the route AMS-BRU. Is this just a one-day thing or is it a start for more to come?

I am noticing this too already since a few days on the Brussels-Amsterdam flights.
At the guys with more information: if SNBA is not going to have a code share partner like Sabena didn't have one: are those routes going to be profitable?
Sabena's routes to Africa were profitable without a codeshare partner. If SNBA can have the same figures without a code share partner, is it smart than to start code sharing this routes with Continental?
