Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

And to be completely clear, the LH pilots are proposing a 45% pay cut on their base salary, which is around 4500e brut. On average it means a 10a20% total pay cut compared to their total salary package which consists of function pay, type pay, fixed flight hours pay, etc... Now politicians in NL (an...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

initially the question is not what's good for Belgium, but what's good for Brussels Airlines to survive this crisis and I think the African ops have proven to be paramount in the survival of Brussels Airlines. Are they paramount? African ops are not viable without connecting passengers, SN has 3 A3...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Should we not better state in reverse: Impact of Aviation on Corona ?? Indeed, three weeks ago I was shot down in fire on this forum for pointing out that Brussels Airlines was putting passengers in aircraft without fresh air despite EASA recommendations. F*ck me, there are other airlines to write ...

Re: ATCO at Eurocontrol

The need must be serious: there were posters and flyers to the same point at my airfield in Hasselt - not too far from Mestrich, of course. I cannot help wondering how the MUAC working environment compares to Brussels Tower: perhaps along the lines of less pay but still quite good, better organisat...

Today Hi Fly 9H-MIP is stealing the show in Cairo, after landing with 471 passengers onboard (full capacity), as there are no other commercial flights operated with an A380 in this airport. It operated Air Madagascar flight MD8130 from Antananarivo (charter?).

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Brussels Airlines is not even mentioned by name any longer in the LH group results of 2018. For me it's weird as I still think Brussels Airlines still exists as an airline...

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

These are only arrivals, so I guess all incoming flights to BRU will be cancelled on 14/02? No 330s leave the 12th only to return the 14th, hence the departures on the 13th 😉 there will be no Brussels Airlines plane taking off out of BRU on the 13th, those A330's will stay overnight at their destin...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

I just wonder which figures they use, if they took them from 2012 for example, they were still flying avros half empty. But things are going the good direction, so I fail to understand their calculations... It would seem less logical, but Swiss have less seats in their 330s and are flying further aw...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

The article in HLN is a perfect example of how to misuse minimal information to prove a point to the public. First of all it says it made a list of other companies salaries only to see 2 airlines...

Hi passenger, I think we understand your feelings towards pilots, 'het spat van het scherm', they are spoiled and have no right to improve their working conditions, sort of what I can read from you.
