Well, it seems SN BA is still on track...I certainly hope they won't be facing any problems in the nearby future, and can develop to a nice and great airline.
By the way, just as SN BA is planning on dropping its codesharing agreement with VEX in march 2003 (already discussed over here, and mentioned by Kanaal Z and other media), I just read that VG Airlines and VEX signed some sort of codesharing agreement.
Anyway, it seems that SN BA is really becoming a healthy (but still quite young) airline and I wish them all the best.

Punctuality of 94%. Great.
Contributing factors for this high score:
* An average of only 42 pax/flight to board.
* Spare aircrafts all over the place if one should fail.
* At least 10 crew in standby every day due pilots excess.
* Brussels is an empty airport;
- no more slots.
- always free gates at a finger.
- No remote parking.
* The investor of SN Brussels also has a place in the board of the airport.
Don't forget to mention that Continental would love Brussels as they have the best limousine-service.

All the points you name are a reason why SN Ba can be a success they are working from an airport with a lot of space
they only have a load factor of 50% but with their African flights and a possible codeshare partner in the USA and also with finnair and air litoral they can bring it over 60% what is pretty good on European flights .
So the future looks really good for them i hope they can create a lot of much needed jobs for Belgian pilots.
Lets hope that Sn BA will codeshare with CO so that SN bA will have those nice chauffeur driven cars too
