Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

Great ! I'm visiting relatives in Miami next year. So far, however, Aer Lingus seems to be cheaper than tuifly, although there's a stopover in Dublin.
Small win: You get to do US immigration in Dublin, and land in Miami as a "domestic" flight.

I had planned a flight into Toronto City Airport this summer, but Air Canada cancelled it on the day itself, and in the end I ended up flying to Pearson :(

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

That means heavy competition for SN is on the way: LOT will launch flights to Budapest, and now also Wizz Air.
A definite increase in compeition on BRU-BUD!
It looks like a transferral of Wizz's evening CRL-BUD to Brussels BRU.

Re: Niki suspends operations, restarts as LaudaMotion, rebranded as Lauda

The airline is only a few months old, meeting terms of employment were agreed only months ago between employer and employee. It is fairly shocking that the employer is seeking to change the contracts so soon.

Re: Airbus A380 news

According to this source, British Airways is looking to add up to six second-hand A380s.
I wonder will they be taking them from Oneworld partner Qatar Airways, who have said they wish to phase out their A380's?

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Vueling may move away from an all-Airbus fleet and migrate to the B737 MAX, according to Willie Walsh, CEO of parent IAG. Did Walsh lose some bolts and become nuts? How will his customers react? They're probably cheap to buy now, and will be delivered long after the MAX has proved itself safe :geek:

The Delta Boeing 767-300ER's have a lovely emergency exit row in Comfort+ section. The Delta Airbus A330-200's do not, but have a warm floor at the Economy (Main Cabin) emergency row, which is great since emergency exit rows can get cold. All that said, the A330-200's are being retrofitted with a ne...
