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

Lufthansa is going to take over the flights from Star Alliance member LATAM between Muc and Sao Paulo. This is really bad luck for BRU again as a pax flight between BRU and Sao Paulo is now very unlikely as LH will not allow LATAM to fly to BRU now with pax The reason for this is much more simple t...

Re: Lufthansa in 2018

Lufthansa is launching a route from Frankfurt to Pune in India. Since it is not a heavily travelled route, it is operated by an A319, which does not have a sufficient range. Therefore, there is an intermediate stop in Baku, Azerbaijan. The A319 also does not have dedicated business seats; therefore...

The Ryanair crew members that staged the sleeping-on-the-floor picture have been summoned to Dublin.
Will they also sleep on the floor in Dublin Airport or did the airline book them in a decent hotel?
One way ticket I guess ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Well, if I read that statement of Belgian companies, I cannot find much support to keep the brand or the business model. I read: " “It is crucial that Brussels Airlines , together with its many partners, can further develop the hub in Brussels and the network of flights to Europe and the rest of th...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

According to someone on Airliners.net (I know, not the most reliable source) there are talks going to keep all planes on the ground "to make Lufthansa listen". Anyway, if they decide to strike, is it really the first strike in the history of Brussels Airlines? Somehow it's hard to believe that ther...

Re: Brussels Airlines future and financial perspective

Indeed, LH seems to use every opportunity now to grow eurowings as fast as possible. Wet leasing 40 (!) aircraft incl. crews from Air Berlin already from October / November this year (if this information proves to be correct) seems to be the next step in this strategy (basically all planes of Air Be...

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

Hi, just another experience of flying out of BRU yesterday. I had a 18h55 departure to FRA. I left at the Diamant Station in town by bus 12 to the airport at 16h50 and I hoped this would work, following a positive experience already some week ago. And it went far better than I had expected! The bus ...

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

Guys, had my first flight today to/from BRU after the attacks; flights had been booked two months ago so I had to fly - otherwise I might have taken the train ... I came in from FRA this morning on LH touching down around 8.20am, pretty normal situation at the gate, in the A pier and the baggage hal...

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

You must be in an excellent physical condition if you arrive 25 min before departure and never missed your flight. Especially as you're supposed to be at the gate 15 min before departure. That leaves you with 10 min to clear security and, if you're flying extra schengen, immigration, and make a das...

I do really hope this will be only the procedure for the first days or weeks and than everybody will come back to normal procedures - I am doing several flights a month to/from Brussels, all short haul from within Europe and for those flights (usually in and out on the same day) this is ridiculous; ...

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

With all respect for the important, difficult and sometime dangerous work the security guys do - can you find any large EU or US airport doing entzy checks? Might there be a reason for this? Shifting security controls to entry check points outside the airport will in my view in no way reduce the ris...

guys, of course it would be great to have the airport open again, and yes, I have flights to/from BRU scheduled next week Tuesday and would love to know asap if they will take place or not, but I think we need to be realistic here ... everybody who has seen only a few pictures of the terminal after ...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports

Anyone an idea how the upcoming national strike on 22 April will affect air traffic at BRU ? I should attend a meeting in Leuven on 22/23 April and as the train from Frankfurt via Liege, which I would have preferred in this case, most certainly will not run there would be the option to fly into BRU ...

Re: Eurowings Intercontinental

I guess the solution to the eurowings / sunexpress issue is not that difficult: LH needed a German AOC for its new eurowings operation, otherwise there would be no acceptance by the public. On the other hand it could not be an AOC from within Lufthansa itself and there could not be one founded by LH...
