Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Just like Sabena, Alitalia is a loss making company. Governments supporting this kind of business falsify competion towards non-funded airlines. Unfair competition: the European Union calls it "illegal state aid". ALITALIA is to important for Italy,tourism is the first income of Italy and ALITALIA ...

Nobody wants to see a legacy airline go bust, but we Belgians compare with Sabena. In 2000-2001, the Belgian government didn't hesitate to put the airline down. Where at Alitalia, they do everything possible to keep the airline afloat.
Exactly...

Any reason?
Strange because Emirates already cancelled one daily flight this month...
Due to capacity restrictions at DXB -> ongoing runway works
I now but it means less seats to the region and a direct competitor...

Re: OFFICIAL: Koksijde air base to close after 2023, Oostende to get the helicopters...

But logical because the two airports are underused and this will strengthen the numbers of Oostende Airport.

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Please, give me one government or private company where some of the staff oppose always the decisions of his management and/or his CEO? Times change, every change requires an adjustment. Why does that not apply to the ATCO's? The problems at Belgocontrol/skeyes have been dragging on for many years....

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Hey mvg. I think you are missing the point here it looks complex and I'm sure that if they had the choice to avoid striking(last month's) they wouldn't do it people go on strike when there is no other solutions anymore! I mean Phoenixx clarified a lot,you can discuss details but for me it's clear. P...

Re: Jet Airways' financial situation, can they be saved ?

Tomorrow, around 1100 Jet Airways pilots will start a strike over unpaid wages. It reminds me of the end of Sabena, with pilots striking when the airline was sinking... Not really because the SABENA pilots got there wages....here they did not for the last 3 months they have a good reason to strike!

Re: Kalitta 747-400 Dumping fuel

Isn’t it common to declare emergency after a compressor stall? But to go and dump fuel over the North Sea, and then going 2000km or so to LEJ at 7000ft... seems a bit excessive when you’re passing all sorts of alternates, no? 3 engines still running, and perhaps maintenance bay in Leipzig ? I think...
