Just 2 details
1) Sterne 82 : please remember that the first A321 joined the SN fleet only in march 1999. And note that the OO-SUC is lucky to be still flying as during autumn 2000 the rear part of its fuselage touched the ground on landing at LIS, causing a few weeks of repairs (plus 1 non pressurized ferry flight from LIS to BRU). Maybe SN pilots will be in a better position to give us more details on this unusual event. An event wich gave us the chance to see Balair planes at BRU.
2)TriStar speaks about uniformity with only A330 in the the LH fleet. That's absolutely correct BUT SN wouldn't be SN if she hadn't managed to have 3 GE-powered (A333 OO-SFM/N/O, earlier in Air Inter) amongst 7 PW-powered (the six A332 OO-SFP till SFU and the last A333, OO-SFX, the ''exotic''-one with a little different cabin layout)
. But I must add it's not SN's will to have those 2 types of engines, the 3 A333-GE are in it's fleet because she took what she found (or could afford ?) in the time of their selection.
