Re: is Privilege still alive ?!?

Same problems over here !!

I had to write an e-mail to privilege in order to add my miles of Februrary.

In march I had 4 flights in bflex and up to now they only added 1250 points instead of the 5000.

Re: Security Fast Lane

The web-printed boarding passes worked well as well with the scanning machines (the boarding passes where ...

Re: When will details about SNs new code sharing be available

What about the merger of privilege into miles and more ? Any news about that ?

I'm both privilege and miles & more member.

Thanks

Re: brussels airlines BRU-THF-BRU

Sad news indeed to see such a great airport and important piece of history disappear.

Glad I was able to experience it at least once.

Many greetings to all from Los Angeles

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

First of all congrats to SN !! I'm very happy with this news !! Concerning the maintenance of SN's aircraft, isn't it bad news for Sabena Technics ? I suppose the maintenance of the 737's, A319's and A330's will now be performed by LH Technik ? Concerning the move from Privilege to Miles&More: Does ...

Mid-air collision over Lelystad/Netherlands on 19/10/2007

I have some very sad news to post this evening. This afternoon I was told that there had been a mid-air collision between a Cessna (PH-BVE) and a Fuji FA‑200 last Friday. Photo of the Cessna: http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1130367/L/ Due to the collision I've been told that the Cessna lost its t...

Indeed the first two pictures have quite some loss in quality !! I will have to wait some more weeks/months until the weather is going to be perfect.

So the most expensive "low cost" "cheap" carrier in the world is going to get even more expensive. Very soon you will need a second mortgage to be able to afford one of their "cheap" tickets. Please stop with this kind of "nonesense" posts Louise !! You always claim that they are very expensive. Ev...

And BUYING three new medium haul Airbusses or Boeings if they have not yet decided on their fleet renewal, seems illogical. There are certainly "older" B737's which can be bought for a good deal, so yes it could make sense to buy planes instead of leasing them. All I hope is they won't get planes à...
