Re: BRU Summer 2019: news, new routes, airlines

Within a few years JetBlue might start flying to Brussels (Article in Dutch). https://www.tijd.be/ondernemen/luchtvaart/jetblue-wikt-trans-atlantische-vlucht-naar-zaventem/10116311.html Spare me. I already shiver at the idea of doing an 8 hour transatlantic flight in a single aisle aircraft I flew ...

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

Interestingly, KLM maintains all its flights: what an opportunity! Most SN destinations can be reached from AMS. Whereas LH, LX and OS cancelled all their flights together with SN when FRA, MUC VIE, ZRH could be nice alternatives. Lack of vision of the LH Group! Already last week the full LH Group ...

Re: Lufthansa Is Trying To Sue Passengers For Skiplagging

The real shame is that skiplagging cant be used for round trip. A no show on one flight shouldnt cancel the return flight. If its paid its paid. If you decide to do one leg on a donkey's back its your choice. It is actually on the return.. for an example.. on SN one way GVA - BRU - LHR can be much ...

Indeed, that CDG train station is a real icehouse in winter, and the winds created by the passage of trains make it even worse!
Precisely why I stopped flying AF. The wait at the train station after a long flight is horrible. Did it twice, never again.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

It is much cheaper than bottled water. I meant cheap like style I find a design glass bottle with fruits and petals floating in it much more stylish and personal than a plastic bottle. But OK, we're not going to agree on this I feel And I don't really think people will change lounges because of the...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Concerning plastic crap, they can easily replace with glass Bottled water if they are concerned about the en it Money. But they did not think of plastic, trust me.. they think that they found a brilliant way to cut costs. But they are stupid as this will backfire and they will eventually return the ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

That is very cheap, I find. Many people do not drink tap water at home or at a restaurant..why should they at a premium lounge? Actually this is very standard in Estonia You *always* get water with berries, fruits, even flowers-petals I don't find this cheap at all (and way better than all the plas...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Seems SN is saving on potable water at its flagship lounge in brussels! Bottled water no where to be found, replaced by flavoured tap water in large glass jars! First the small bottled waters were replaced by large ones, clearly to cut costs. Now bottled water is gone alltogether! That is very cheap...

Shared by the resto. Parking and the client..
It could be free parking for an hour or two.

A free parking ticket for every customer in the bar, e.g. consuming more than €10 ?

Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

The paid parking certainly has kept me away! Then again, I am not an airline passenger anyway so perhaps I am not a factor of loss... The reduction of service at BelAir is bad too, but quite understandable. They are not a charity, after all. I'm not too familiar with the surroundings, but isn't the...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

if landing fees and other costs permit.. For LCY landing fees are per aircraft, not per tonne, so it gets expensive with only 19 seats. Comparison for ANR->LCY return flight: B1900: - ANR: 70€ (8 tonnes) T/O+landing fee - LCY: 1240£ (premium hours) / 1191£ (peak hours) ATR72-500 - ANR: 170€ (23 ton...
