Re: Air Antwerp in 2020

Well, my reasoning is, since AMS is just a milestone away from ANR and easy reachable by train, why would you allow your ‘partner, to compete with you going to the same destination?

But that is just me reasoning like that.

Just curious how all this will evolve.

Re: Air Antwerp in 2020

Aberdeen was actually a short-lived, but good selling route. But then again, maybe air antwerp shouldn’t be doing the same routes that already failed 2-3 times with VLM. At the other hand, they are backed by KLM, so if they look for good niche markets it will be a success for sure. But KLM is flyin...

Re: Air Antwerp in 2020

Very nice footage. Tx I am really wondering what future Air Antwerp has in mind. Ok the ANR-LCY is back. Good load factors, enough freq’s, again stability. Like the old days. All nice, but i am wondering what their vision is. You don’t start a new company just to operate 1 single route and that’s it...

My condolences to the staff. Aviation is facing difficult times and it will be hard to secure a new aviation job.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Just a pure speculative question: let’s say Brussels Airlines is going bust. What happens with the slots? Does Lufthansa own them or will they be put back on the “market”?

I had exactly the same thinking: what’s the benefit if there is no link.🤔

I think they have more important worries than that language issue right now.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I am not an expert in management but can it be a plan of LH waiting to see SN going bust and then refill the open slots by their own aircraft based in Brussels?? Cause in the end, they got SN for very cheap money. It happened in my ex company as well. The mother company lets 1 daughter going bust, a...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Personally i foresee some european flights to be axed and somemore being outsourced to cityjet, perhaps Eurowings. And along with that......yes redundancies as well.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

This is not looking too well. The company i worked for was the same and ended up in a defunct airline. What is the reason(s)of all these lately cancellations??

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

I am really wondering what they will do if that 1 aircraft is AOG?? I think it is vital that there is some reliability in this early proces, especially when attracting new customers.

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

But is there a market for travelers from Antwerp (or Belgium in general) to Belfast City, Edinburgh, Exeter and Jersey, willing to pay the price of a stopover at LCY? Reverse that question: are ppl in Edinburgh, exeter etc interested to fly to antwerp???? I think when considering routes, there need...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Fokker aircraft never were comfortable, but to start operations on a short flight, if the fares are ok for the route and perhaps if they offer a Business class with the seat "next to you" free, it could work. I like te livery. At least no traditonal dull white and blue. All the best, Air Antwerp ! ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I foresee a lot more flights will be outsourced together with making crews redundant.

My opinion.
