Did Snba Sell It's LHR Slots To BA?

Thu Sep 23, 2004 4:49 pm

All SNBA flights between LHR and BRU are operated by BA (codeshare), has SNBA sold it's slots at LHR, or is BA just using them (and paying for it ?) ?
Thanks, Sjoerd

I don't know. I just flew LHR-BRU in July on SN metal (the 06:50 a.m. flight) so this comes as a surprise to me!
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

SN has only one weekly flight out of LHR and it is the Sunday 06:50 AM flight. Was it on Sunday??

Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

yes, they were, except for the one flight on sundays. In exchange i believe they took over the gatwick slots or at least they operate all codeshares out of BHX-BRU.

It was a Sunday indeed (and it was unbelievably cheap!). That explains why I checked in in a BA counter and why my boarding pass is a BA pass.

And yes, SN has flights between LGW and BRU.
