Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I mean: same route BRU-MOSCOW is served 21 times by AEROFLOT, only 5 times by BRUSSELS AIRLINES. SN also has connections. SN simply underperforms on many destinations. Long way to go. With such a statement, it's obvious you know the load factor. Can you share that with us please? Same for the yield...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

When you see Moscow is only served 5 times a week ( 21 times by Aeroflot !!), Bordeaux, Bristol, Prague,..hardly once a day. Sheremetyevo International Airport: 45 millions pax per year Brussels Airport: 25 millions pax per year Aeroflot: 254 aircraft Brussels Airlines: 56 Aeroflot has a big presen...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If SN wants to grow and become a network airline, you would imagine they would work on and develop further their existing destinations. When you see Moscow is only served 5 times a week ( 21 times by Aeroflot !!), Bordeaux, Bristol, Prague,..hardly once a day. Focus on business destinations will cer...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Schiphol didn't consider a fuel system going down twice as normal, and it wasn't even not their fault, but the supplier AFS. So their CEO apologized on national television and asked himself how they could improve communication to reduce the impact. Applied to Brussels Airport's case, that would be ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

There was indeed again a huge fueling problem this evening at Schiphol. It was not possible to fuel any plane. Also this time was a software problem the issue.

AMERICAN just announces big expansion in Eastern Europe.

Eg 5 times a week to Krakau !!!

Capital of Europe airport is not getting a lot lately.

It is quite pityful to see that the biggest city of Flanders, which is so proud of its harbour, diamond industry, chemical industry, its mayor ... is not able to make even a small airport liveable; and not able to attract or establish and make survive an airline with business connections. The peope ...

Regarding Martinique and Guadeloupe. As it was mentioned before, in favor of France because of obvious reasons.
