Nine flights per week with ARJs. No flights on Saturday. Any news on the rumoured FR response at PIK on CRL?

This is great news,

I wonder what else could be announced at GLA this year.

Unfortunately it looks too late for another transatlantic route to be announced.

Interesting...haven't heard much lately on SN Brussels, especially on any route expansions they've undertaken or even considered. Good for them.

How do they compare to Sabena?

At long last GLA's european destinations are growing at a good pace  Smile

Mr. Baxter did comment that more announcements could be made shortly, perhaps Vilnius?

BRU-GLA-BRU will be operated by a De Havilland Dragon Rapide or a Avro Anson, both in single class configuration (1-1).
The RJ-85 was originally intended but yesterday's UEFA announcement that both Celtic and Rangers would not qualify for future CL participation (due to lack of "original" players) has completely changed the prospects.

So are we AV8AJET.

Here's hoping we will see this route in 2006.

The US carriers are doing the rounds on European expansion in the spring for a decision in the fall, so plenty of time for rumours. However, AA is back in the frame and I expect some interesting 757 developments from NW if the project goes ahead.

Sorry Billy, maybe its too early in the morning but I don't fully understand what you mean. Are AA and NWA back in the frame for this year or next?

Gaz, seems to be that any announcements will be for summer 2006, being announced in the winter later this year

It is definately for S2006. Everything for 2005 is now sorted. It is way too late to launch anything transatlantic for 2005.

Thanks Billy for your input regarding GLA. Its nice to have someone who can start rumours with some substance.

Have you heard anything else regarding the proposed Vilnius route? And could ATL be on the cards for S06?

The new SN route between BRU and GLA still needs to be confirmed officially by both SN Brussels Airlines and BAA-Glasgow, so I still have some questions:

*) Will BA codeshare on the route, just like on all other UK destinations SN serves?
What other partner airline(s) will put their code on the flight: IB?

*) a flight schedule with 'only' 9 weekly flights: does that indeed mean we will see 2 daily flights on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and one daily flight on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday like I have heard somewhere? (no flight on Saturday is already confirmed)
Is this just something temporarily for the start of the route over the quieter summer months and is SN going to increase to a double daily flight every day as from winter 2005 or what's the idea behind this proposed schedule (fill up the open slots in the timetable with connecting flights through LHR/LGW/MAN/BHX on BA)?

officially confirmed now:

For those wondering why the flight numbers don't seem to follow:
they are the old Sabena flight numbers for this route, yet Sabena used to have more frequencies on the GLA-BRU route.

Yes I was expecting a BA codeshare as that seems to be BA's way of saying they serve Scotland, "Lets stick a codeshare on the AA ORD-GLA flight so we appear to offer long haul flights from a non-London airport" or something along those lines Big grin
