I've removed multiple personal attacks, off topic posts, (very) marginally on topic posts, politically tinted posts etc. Now behave and discuss the topic at hand, or don't even bother replying. DO NOT start personal attacks. There was ...

The difference between Alitalia and Brussels Air is that the Italian government will do everything to keep them alive. The Belgian government will not, like with Sabena in 2001.
I don't think so.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Academics from several Belgian universities plead to completely nationalise Brussels Airlines ànd Brussels Airport. They state that aviation has to become a public sector.

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Italian newspapers report that Margarethe Vestager, the EU Commissioner for Competition, rejects the Alitalia construction. Let's see what the EU is going to do in my opinion they will just bark and let it go. EU Commissioner Vestager would like that all airlines compete themselves to death. So she...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I don't know whether I should cry, laugh or vomit when I read such things. Could you give me the contact details of your employer? I'd like to suggest him to cut your salary by 30% while increasing your productivity. Or to kick you out in order to give a "chance to young people"... Simply disgustin...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

That's why it's maybe better to go bust and to start over with very competitive expenses. What do you think? Will give maybe the opportunity for young people.. Are employees gaining much less with Ryanair if yes than to be competitive you have to go to the same level or I'm missing something? I don...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

From what I know and HAVE SEEN from a relative working there with 20 years of seniority: 3.000€ is when you fly 5-6 long-hauls and two medium-hauls layover in one month and you have an 100% contract with high seniority. And it means roughly 90 block-hours a month. You just can't fly like this more ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The salary in airlines industry will go down for sure because competition becomes harder and harder if you don't want to work for less change to another job! On the other hand it was never so cheap to fly. I think it will be like that in a lot of other industries but these are the rules of capitalis...
