Re: Air Belgium in 2019

Is there a risk for Brussels Airlines to lose the authorisation to fly 7 times a week?
I suppose Air Belgium will take over the rights that normally a Congolese airline should use but what are the reciprocal agreements?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

What is also strange is that white livery ok but why can Lufthansa and Austrian continue from tail to fuselage but Brussels Airlines only tail and white fuselage in the back?

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I would call it cheapo "blabla" - not one word of useful information. What caused the issue? How will pax get their bags? When will pax get their bags? Answers to these would bring information. Passengers don't give a damn about what caused the issue. All they are interested in is " When shall I ge...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

For example why is Brussels Airlines not flying to Brest with a 50 seater three times a day ? Brest not a smal market, but not a big market. The airport is linked to Paris Cdg, 3 times a day and since March 2019, there is 3 weekly service to Amsterdam opeated by Air France HOP. Currently, It's prob...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

And on the SN Toronto flight, codeshare with EW for the Hanover pax or will the EW feed flight codeshare with SN? Will SN be allowed to sell the whole route ticket? The old say: why make it simple when it can be complicated? From Hanover to Toronto via SN and BRU? Seriously? MUC and FRA are the obv...

...and also, it only creates more administration, more complexity. Much simpler and more efficient would be to reduce or even remove the VAT exemption on airliner fuel. That's another idea I'm not a specialist in that matter but if a tax should be imposed it should be on EU level to be correct and ...

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

I am not an expert but it seems in sept SN will also fly back to Bristol, also operated Cityjet. Correct if i am wrong. Yes, as from 1st September 2019, SN is going to fly to Bristol, with 6 weekly flights, using CR9 of CityJet. SN2057 BRU - BRS 15:05 - 15:15 12345-7 CR9 SN2058 BRS - BRU 15:50 - 18...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Why is Brussels Airlines not flying to Lubumbashi? Remember Korongo? They'd be clean daft to point even one finger at Lubumbashi. That name is burnt, and will be for some time. It would be nice enough, though, I must agree. Yes but that was a local player with everything around the purpose here sho...

1 or 2 times a week or even Brussels-Kinshasa-Lubumbashi should work?
Probably a problem of bilateral traffic rights.
Maybe but South African and Ethiopian are flying there .
Maybe it's possible to negotiate to open this market?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The reason why OS is more of a network airline is not of its intercontinental network (they have more or less the same number of long haul aircraft as SN) but are the many connections to eastern european destinations (70+% of pax is transfer traffic). If you look at their route map you hardly see a...
