Re: Why a name on the ticket ?

I understand it well. But if MrX has bought, say, a blight ticket on SN and is unable to take the flight he has booked : he can get no refund, and no change of date without paying a heavy fee. But he can give his ticket and his boarding pass to MrY, or even sell his ticket to MrY - why not ? MrY ca...

Re: SN flight to TLS left without baggage !

If SN would have done the extra fuel stop somewhere, wouldn't this disrupt the whole schedule ? Meaning, delays for the rest of the day and miss-connetions for transfer pax? I do however agree that they could arrange better information and service on arrival. If they knew it before everyone checked-...

Re: Taxi's blocking Brussels Airport after police shot drive

It seems to me that all the taxidrivers blocking the roads tonight should get fined for parking their vehicle on the public road. It is becoming a bad habbit that everybody decides to take matters in their own hands...certainly if the actions are based on erroneous information! It a difference in c...

Re: Brussels Airport: monthly figures 2011

That's making it more logical.

Re: BRU in "Airports of the world" mag

I had heard that they might move the security check-point to the beginning of the tunnel and put shops in the tunnel to make it a more pleasant journey going to the A-pier. Isn't the distance to the A-pier mainly an issue for connecting passengers from the B-pier (length + time) ? Because I always ...

If it's too big, isn't BRU-JFK-BOS-JFK-BRU or BRU-JFK-BOS-BRU or BRU-BOS-JFK-BRU not an option ??
