Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I assume that the job is mentally stimulating as well.. could not be monotonous as they are detecting forgeries etc..they follow training and very regular updates concerning international passports and new regulations .. I am sure that there are much more boring police jobs they can find themselves ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Why don't federal "policemen" like to work at BRU ? The answer to this question is crucial to solve the problem. A simple (simplistic) solution to the problem is money. They will love to work at BRU if they are paid more (for instance, through bonuses). There is no money you will say. OK, the let's...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

2 other things to address at BRU: 1: faster immigration 2: faster luggage retrieval I was in Tokyo Haneda the other day and OWH MY GOD! Got of the plane ( long haul ) , got through immigration, got my luggage within 5 minutes and I was on the subway to Shinagawa in less than 30 minutes after disemb...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

With SN gone in the coming year(s), they should present themselves as the new flag carrier, full-service quality airline to Brussels, home of numerous international institutions and the second biggest diplomat city in the world. There must be a market for this Clearly there is no market for it, SN ...

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.

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.
