Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Let's not go there again. That argument has run its course multiple times. Then the comment should be removed. It would have been different if it said:I think the strike was not justified, meaning a personal opinion. “The strike was not justified”is a blanket statement and should be then backed up ...

And to those who think that the strike was justified. Which it was not.

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?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Excellent article from a man who knows what he is talking about (French only)! He also wrote some excellent articles about the Sabena bankruptcy. (He did research during 15 years.) http://www.lalibre.be/debats/opinions/greve-chez-brussels-airlines-pas-etonnant-que-les-pilotes-soient-nerveux-5af951d...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Politicians should keep their mouth wide shut. A big part of the current situation at SN is by their doing anyway. They had a huge role to play in the bankruptcy of SABENA and again in the sale of SN to Lufhansa. Incompetency and lack of subject knowledge made Belgium one of the most aviation unfrie...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

You know what I would do if I would work for such a bad employer? I would quit. I would go to a competitor like KLM or Ryanair, who apparently pay sooooo much more and where pressure (werkdruk) is sooooo much lower. Yep. And that’s why everybody here with a bit of knowledge in aviation (other than ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

You don't know me - and I regard that as a bonus for me. It is the legal right from employees to go on strike to get more money in their pocket indeed. But then, those defending that right should also respect the right from others (like me and the rest of the tourism & travel trade) to call them eg...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

But strike is a right or do I mis something,you can also blame the management for the strike. If the pilots go on strike that means there is no other solution I can not imagine they are going on striker (and in this case more than 80% are backing it)and shooting in there own foot if they had anothe...

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

From where most days my friend live, I didn’t say 40 min btw, but 40 min longer. And in fact, the last 8 times I have been at BRU (in 1,5 months) I have been in a long queue, whether departing or arriving, so my glass is overflowing by now

So I asked the "Maitre de Cabine" if the cockpit was an intended escape route.
She answered "Ja, I have also noticed zis and made a report. I don't sink zis is normal".

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

Picture from 27 april, found on twitter. Apparently, passengers had to wait about 1,5 hours for passport check. This is getting ridiculous. Tweeting "it's not our fault, it's the federal police", does not solve anything for passengers. Action is needed. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dbxfss6UQAAiK7u.j...

I actually tweeted BRU and they opened the e-gates after my tweet, which infuriates me even more as that means there was no valid reason for them to be closed in the first place :roll:

Re: Ryanair in 2018

Crew hours? Fuel gauge needle knocking on the dial? or just a little pilot rebellion ;) 8-) I wonder if a little controller rebellion would be taken so lightly... ;) Taking an airplane with 189 pax to an airport They probably want to go to or disrupting a few 100.000 people is quite different ... No?

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

The whole shopping discussion has become pretty futile to me: it ain't going to change. Also the buildings: the outside is in a dilapidated state, but I think Brussels Airport knows this and has some ideas to fix it and I can accept it takes time. But what really bothers me are the delays at immigr...
