Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Once again: If and only If SN is going bust, what will happen with the slots??? I would not surprised LH let SN deliberately go bust. But they never wanna leave BRU behind because it would mean extra competition.(and that in these hard times, they can miss that as the pest) My gamble: they will try ...

.... i would rather think SN going bust and to replace them with Eurowings.

Does anybody know, lets say, SN will go bust, do the slots going back or does LH retain them??

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Hi I am not an expert in aviation business, but can it be an idea that CS has no intention at all to save Brussels Airlines. Asking 100 million extra sounds for me a bit like an intention to let the negotiations fail on purpose. Perhaps the real plan is to let BA go fail and get those Eurowings bird...

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 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.
