Easyjet will start a daily flight between Naples and Amsterdam as of S16

I feel like 9W would do really well on a BRU-SFO route
|Quoting tomcat (Reply 116):|
9W will be ending all its operations at BRU by the end of the winter season, they're definitely not a candidate for such a route. Furthermore, I believe that BRU-SFO trafic is highly seasonnal and very low out of the summer season, so there is little hope to ever see SFO regularly served out of BRU.
|Quoting LJ (Reply 119):|
There is still no confirmation and flights are still bookable for S16. At the moment we only have very very strong indications, nothing more (at least yet).

China Eastern Airlines (MU) filed an application to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for launching a nonstop international service from its hub Shanghai to Amsterdam, Netherlands next April.
Pending government approval, the Shanghai-based carrier will fly its Airbus A330-200 aircraft from Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) in April 2016, with four flights weekly, according to an announcement released Friday on the website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
In June 2015, China Eastern had expressed its willingness to launch more long-haul routes to Europe and the U.S. as increased competition among domestic airlines.
The Air Transportation Department of CAAC is soliciting public comments on the application until Nov. 28, 2015.

MU is awaiting approval to operate PVG-AMS v.v. with A330 equipment from April 2016 (S16)
|Quoting LJ (Reply 132):|
The venture seems legit as the persons behind the venture are people who have aviation knowledge.
|Quoting tomcat (Reply 140):|
According to the Belgian press Ethiopian Cargo would have been permanently granted trafic rights to operate up to 28 flights a week between Belgium and Hong Kong, Dubai and Shanghai. It could operate these flights from BRU or LGG, or from a mix of both. Currently, Ethiopian Cargo is operating such flights from MST thanks to temporary trafic rights but it's also negotiating with the Dutch authorities to obtain permanent trafic rights. If these Dutch trafic rights would be granted, ET could then shop between MST, BRU and LGG to get the best deal from one of these airports. Well done from ET.
This being said, I cannot believe that cargo flights are still governed by these ancient practice of trafic rights grants.

but I can't help but wonder what's wrong with MAD? I can see how it might be difficult to add flights to LHR (TAM only flies from GRU), but MAD shouldn't be that busy, has the connections TAM wants and the local powerhouse is in the same alliance. Unlike BRU.
