Re: Lufthansa in 2018

In all fairness, Carsten Spohr doesn't say that in the article: it's the author of the piece which does when he explains the setup of the LH group to his readers by defining Eurowings and Brussels Airlines as such, not the CEO. Big difference! There are many quotes from Mr. Spohr in this article fo...

Re: Trivia 2018 (miscellaneous news)

Time difference problem? Looking at FR24, I just noticed that SN552 took off from Toronto at 18:10 local time, which I believe to be 00:10 Belgian time. My computers indicates 23:45 right now; so does my watch. Any logical explanation? And, btw, the scheduled departure time from Toronto is 18:00 loc...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Given the fact that the C-series is now becoming an Airbus, I would not be surprised to see this one appearing in the fleet of SN sooner or later. This aircraft can be perfectly used on the route to Bromma. Read the lips of Kaiser Carsten: NO NEW PLANES! Unless you mean much much later than sooner...

Re: BRU Winter 2018-19: news, new routes, airlines

Primera Air has requested slots for daily service to IAD and EWR starting this winter with A321(LR), I guess. Anybody news about that? From experience, a slot request doesn’t actually mean that they WILL start flying. But it’s a start. Would that be direct flights or via its base (Reykjavik?) This ...

Re: Sukhoi (EI-FWD), operating for Brussels Airlines stuck on runway 25R and forced to be towed to its stand

News from the nursery ;) :
B still in Zadar (since more than a week now :( );

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

On the 19th of May EI-FWD broke down at Zadar Airport and was ferried to its base in Venice six days later. The aircraft seems to be in repair until the 18th of June, ferried back to Brussels to operate SN2049 to Birmingham (18/06/2018) and has now been grounded at Birmingham since then. If I under...

Re: VLM Airlines Brussels (ex-Thomas Cook) news 2018

The last one is another story: the transition period from TCAB to VLM, and thus difficult to analyse. It is before the huge capital increase mentioned above. Yes, huge. But if I read it correct, not one Euro from that 8.179.534 Euro has appeared on their bank account. From the notification in the S...

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

How can SN's share get lower when its increase in May was 5.3% while BRU increased only by 2.4% ? I thank you for your question; it is a very good question! :) ;) SN share decreased compared to April 2018 (39.0% vs 40.9%), but actually increased compared to May 2017 (38.1%). My mistake. Sorry for t...

For May, y/y increase of pax was 5.3%. Despite ASK higher by 3.9%, RPK rose by 9.1%, resulting in a pax lf of 80.3%.
Due to 2 days of strike, SN share at BRU retreated to 39%.

It was already working on the flight tg935 BRU-BKK 26 May. I was watching the CL finale. BTW, a very good flight in a very comfortable economy seat. Airbus A350 is top!

OO-SFO will operate today EW1104/EW1105 DUS-RSW-DUS. OO-SFB is having a E-check and is not ready on time. Let's hope that kind of support will work both ways! What do you mean? Flights are operated by the same company? You're right. I just hope that when BRU will need a plane based in DUS, e.g. an ...

Practical question: which cockpit and cabin crews would be handling the flight, SN or EW? And on the way back?

Any idea about which destinations will replace the 3 frequencies lost on Kinshasa? SN doesn't seem to be in a hurry to fly its aircraft. Or are they hoping Kabila will change his mind?
