By the way, SN is called Brussels Airlines since 2008 ! I really also believe that Sabena can come back with a completely reenrgised team and spirit !

Look at the following page to see SN's rich heritage :;_ylt=A0PDodd33iZPTxUAHvdNBQx.?p=sabena+&fr=yfp-t-702&ei=utf-8&n=30&x=wrt

Phillipine Airlines , Sri Lankan ( Air Lanka ) and Kenya Airways also had poor reputations but look at how they turned their fortunes around.

I doubt Sabena's services were ever worse than US carrier's domestic flybus service !

I remember being at JFK in summer 2000 and seeing many blue tailed Sabena aircrafts that looked nothing short of stunning !

Maybe a facebook campaign can be started to bring the name back ?

i agree. today's SN is better then most of the crap we get in the USA from Delta, AA, UA/CO, US. Bring back Sabena !!!! theya hv one of the richest heritages in the aviation !

Flew Sabena once in late 80's.

Overriding memory however was the firms appearance on the very first fly on the wall documentary about Heathrow and the daily goings on.

That programme, which featured the airlines inept airport manager, trying to deal with disrupted passengers, in the full glare of TV cameras, did more to destroy them than almost any other event. It was toe curlingly awful.

Looks like Sabena's twin sister Sabona is very much alive and well in the guise of Sabona of London!!

SN Brussels sounds like a low cost airline not class to the name!

It's as likely that Shergar will come back to win the derby :-)

The Sabena name is very much alive in the guise of Sabena Technics based at Zaventem or nearby !

Salford Software seem to also use a variation of the old Sabena logo

I flew Sabena a lot in the early 90's. I think memory is playing tricks on some of you.
