Re: Eurowings in 2018

Strange, those continuous referrals to Carsten Spohr as head of Eurowings. If one reads the German press -like Handelsblatt and FAZ- one would almost dare to think that not Carsten Spohr, but a certain Thorsten Dirks is CEO of Eurowings. And that a certain Christina Foerster is CEO of Brussels Airli...

Re: Ryanair in 2018

Ryanair's first Boeing 737 MAX 200 aircraft (EI-HAT) has rolled out of Boeing's final assembly line. A "gamechanger" indeed: - 20% more cost efficient per seat - 5% lower operating costs than the 737 MAX 8 - reduce fuel consumption by up to 16% - Cattle class 2.0 - 3 toilets for 197 passengers http...

Passiva on their balance sheet: the capital is 20 mio € and remains 20 mio € (until a capital raise or a capital decrease). Capitaux propres (eigen vermogen): we don't know, but there was that alert few we...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

So actually their 20 mio € capital is gone, and they urgently need another 4 mio €. Maybe it's time for the shareholders to consolidate their losses. How do you know that their capital is gone? I don't think it is true... How can you still hire people, fly for other airlines... Without capital? Whe...
