Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

So aviation specialist only can talk about aviation? People who thing that are wrong. Aviation specialist knows how works aviation but see everything in a self-centered way forgetting that aviation is part of something more global, having impact on many other field like economy, foreign exchange, i...

3. We should avoid politics on this website I agree with the fact that politics should be avoided on this forum; but as long as it's only reporting without any personal opinion; why not?

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2020

A few Flemish newspapers report that TUI now accepts new bookings, but cancels them a few days later “because of corona”. One TUI-client reports that he booked on 6th June for travel from Ostend to Murcia on 7th July, and he paid a 650 €. Just three days later, TUI cancelled the flight, but refused...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I have sympathy for Brussels Airlines employees. My indignation and comments are actually about the BRU Airport management . Yes, I find them greedy money-wolves. And I am disappointed that they hide behind a tree when it comes to ( help ) saving their biggest customer SN. Their silence is ear-deafe...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Passenger is probably right when he says that BRU's A.F. has already a plan up his sleeve. Knowing how A.F. has been behaving so far, he must be in a "wait and see mode", hoping not to have to intervene at the expense of his shareholders. To me it is quite obvious that the man only thinks of his sh...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

It remains strange (mysterious ?) that BRU Airport remains silence in the whole SN debate?? You would expect BRU to be actively looking for solutions, new approach etc to help save their biggest customer. 40% of the traffic is SN at BRU. And it could be more. Is BRU just greedy, lazy, uninterested ,...

Just some thoughts: - crisis will take probably two years or more - many airlines will disappear, or become lot smaller - what is role of BRU in this, they are about to lose their biggest customer and we do not hear them - will FR, easy be the same as before or a lot smaller - will LX and LH continu...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Belgian politicians will never understand the airline business. Nor the importance it has for our country's economy, independence and future. Most of our strategic companies are in hands of foreign shareholders and holdings. Energy, airport, harbours etc are essential and should by all means kept un...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Are we so proud that we will continue to put money in a bottomless pit? FWIW, the 'bottomless pit' is actually quite lucrative for the Belgian government! Let me explain: Last year, they've booked a loss of some 25M on a turnover of 1,6BN euro indeed, but they: - contributed more than 40M euro in s...
