Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

That's what I proposed for years already that SN use the A321LR to Luanda for example but a lot of people where mocking me then. I don't know what the discussion was about exactly, nor why you were being mocked, but before stating 'SN should fly the A321(X)LR to this or that destination' one needs ...

The morning bank departs from 10:00 - 11:00. If the connection time increases for these flights, then a morn...

Re: Breaking: BRU obtains US border preclearance station status

Since BRU is only one of the few Star Alliance airports to get US preclearence it might open up opportunities for UA to expand at BRU. Instead of opening the 'promised' second EWR flight from AMS (!), and starting from that same SkyTeam airport a seasonal SFO route. This was/is a slap in the face f...
