Does anybody know why the flights from New York JFK and Newark came in too late today - and subsequently their return was delayed...?

Thanks.

I highly doubt there would be a market for flights ex-BRU to Paris... The competition with Air France/TGV is tough whereas time and money can be defined as the main reasons. Competition with AF? They have no flights BRU-CDG... That's true, there are no flights CDG-BRU operated by Air France. But th...

The main target of the SN Paris CDG flight to/from Brussels is feeding passengers from the Paris region to the African flights... and fly those passengers back homewards. Have a look at the schedules, it will become clear. That's the reason of a CDG-BRU-CDG rotation operated by Europe Airpost. I hig...

Hi nic_biso,

I'm afraid this is an example of a codeshare flight, probably with Iberia.

E.g. American Airlines has also several codeshare flights intra-Europe with SN where these flights have an AA flightnumber.

Hi Robin,

Thank you for your answer. It's a clear explanation! I didn't know about the existance of this ACARS-server.

So regarding the AA-flights: they could have departed on time in BRU then, depending on the distance in time between GHE and BRU, right?

Regards,

fostro.

@Airbuske:

Regarding your American Airlines log, a small remark:

JFK-BRU AA172 instead of AA170
BRU-JFK AA171

When I look at the departure times, it seems both flights had a delay app. 30 minutes... Was it bad weather or dense traffic then?

Flight AA172 left JFK with a delay because of mechanical problems. Consequently flight AA171 was delayed too. The fogproblems in London taken into account, a fully booked ORD-flight and the busy Christmasperiod you can imagine it has been a huge challenge for AA Airport Staff to get all passengers a...

Have you checked American's fares already? They do offer smoothly connections out of Brussels via JFK and ORD to Mexico City.

I don't know their fares by heart, but they are similar to those of BA, KL and other major carriers.

However, potential routes are regulary monitored - like with most of the airline companies. Things can change of course when demand is such high that a direct flight will be feaso...
