LH officially announced interest to take over Condor 100%. They even are considering taking over all the TUI airlines. I only have a link in German for now: https://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/unternehmen/lufthansa-will-uebernahmeangebot-fuer-condor-abgeben-a-1266132.html You most probably mean all t...Jump to post

I guess it’s just a rumour, my friend over at SN hasn’t heard anything. SN is the competence center of the EW-group long haul operations.Jump to post
And what would be the role of Lufthansa compared to SN’s role?Jump to post
That would not be good news for SN as they were appointed to take care of the long haul operations of the Eurowings Group.Jump to post

With all the competition OS will get in the coming period from LaudaMotion, Level and Wizz it looks as they will be the next to merge into EW.Jump to post
To do this, they should have gotten the AB 330’s as wellJump to post
Nothing I’m mentioning in public. Etihad and Lufthansa are very close. Well founded speculation that that the 330 and 777 fleet are heading to LH group as Etihad seeks a way to dramatically scale down when LH are seeking ways to grow EW long haul into profitability. Even a plan to take the 330 airc...Jump to post
They will most probably become EW tooJump to post
Soon there will be no more real Belgian airline connecting BRU to other European capitals. SN short haul will more then likely become EW.Jump to post
A slap in the face of Christina Foerster, CEO of Brussels Airlines. But then, is she really the CEO? Spohr put her there to let SN integrate into his baby...Eurowings! But AAB on the other really thinks he can say whatever he wants, he’s a real bully. Poor female QR staffJump to post
I just wonder how SN would have looked like right now if they would have closed the deal with BA instead of LH. When they agreed with LH to be taken over xx years ago, the CEO at that time, Mayrhuber i believe, his plans with SN were totally different and better for SN then Spohr’s plans. It was to ...Jump to post
The colours are the same as EW. Original? NopeJump to post
The SN African destinations are separate from the DUS ops. LH recently added destinations like NBO, they separated or will do so, the FRA JED ADD flight, flying FRA ADD N/S which means that they will have additional capacity to connect with ET LH acquired SN for Africa but isn’t doing a lot with it...Jump to post
Spohr recently also expressed that Africa was the next continent to be expanded upon. It was looking bright for SN to finally open new African destinations but the only expansion they received is long haul operations out of DUS. If they don’t watch out others will start filling the gaps out of BRU....Jump to post

For IAG+TP+DY the A321LR is a great airplane for TATL. But once you get to interior Europe, route options would shrink to BOS, NYC, PHL, Baltimore/DC, PIT and maybe a couple others. Airlines aren’t going to use them to NYC because of slot restrictions. So does it make sense to have a subfleet of ai...Jump to post
Maybe an opperunity for SN to start IAH? Lufthansa stated some weeks ago that the group is expanding in Africa. Let SN start LOS, a destination that should have been started years ago. If that works out, start IAH, an unserved route from BRU which is also a star hub.Jump to post
DRC wants more $$$ from Belgium and punishes SN by limiting their Operations into the DRC. It’s all about BenjaminsJump to post
