A disgrace for an airport the size of BRU

Impossible for anyone to arrive at a normal time in the airport and catch their flight.

I thought we were a Kingdom. Maybe we should say like King Richard III of England, who in the middle of a battle lost his horse and yelled "My Kingdom for a horse!". At BRU a horse could help getting fast at the top of the queues :mrgreen:

Unfortunately, all of you are right.

Now, who is mainly responsible for this ? The federal minister in charge ? (please, don't tell me it's the unions).
Anyway, whatever the source of the problem is, why don't BRU and the airlines come up with a solution proposal ?

Why doesn't BRU do a "satisfaction" poll with these pax while they are waiting for I don't know how long ?

If it is a question of money, what are the airport taxes which we pay used for ?

What about the electronic checks ? Still not working ?

I come back from LAX ( Tom Bradley Terminal ) via CDG today ( AF A380 ). At LAX all the check-in kiosks were out of order for all comapnies and we had to go to check in at old "chech-in" counters ... and at CDG all E-gates were out of order. So it's not only in Brussels that there are worries ...

The previous drop-off arrangement only lasted for a bit more than a year.

As it was never intended as a 'permanent' solution. Currently they are working on the next version of the 'temporary' solution until the full zone is completely redeveloped over the coming years.

Everything that was done after the attack has been a disaster. What do we pay airport taxes for ? Extremely poor manangement of the situation and especially everything about the drop off area (previous, present, and will there be a future, when ? in five or ten years ? Yes, we are in an under-developed country when it comes to do things properly and fast without paying millions for expert studies which most of the time end up in the bootom of a drawer.

Absolutely true.

Very poor management at BAC (as usual).

ps: in a few weeks time, we can also celebrate the 1 year (!) anniversary of the removal of the ceiling in the arrival hall... Go figure.

Un-be-lievable.

Funny enough I was approached last week, while waiting for my flight to London, for a satisfaction survey of BRU :D The questions were mostly revolving around the “shopping experience” so I posed the question if the core business of the airport was not getting people on and off a plane efficiently and comfortably? I said I pay about 90€ every month in pax charges to BRU and stated that if the basic services are flawed that people dont care about the shopping experience :p fair to her, she did write everything down :)

You can't make an omelet withour breaking an egg.

I do hope the roadworks they're doing now will increase the comfort.

I hope they are serious by stating they will modernise the bus station. It will need a LOT more than some new paint! Let's hope it will be a complete transformation into a modern (and bright!) 21st century bus terminal: so more light (no more oldfashion TL-lights) , better signage, decent waiting facilities, etc.

For example
