Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Knack has it right: Despite its shamefully high unemployment rates, the Brussels Region prefers (night) rest for its population over an expanding Zaventem. Charleroi cannot follow intercontinental for the time being. Few transfer passengers opt for an airport that does not offer European connection...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I flew in fast and flex in August with complimentary catering included! I think it is more to do with the time you ordered the tickets. If you have a ticket including a meal they just can't tell you last minute: "sorry but you will not get what you paid for." It was a last minute upgrade but anyway...

Re: Austrian Airlines in 2019

But if so why is Brussels Airlines not doing the same has Austrian Airlines. I mean they should have the same approach why is L...

The situation at OS looks even worse than at SN (which is not expected to fire people, but rely only on natural departures to slim down)
Voluntary departures, which is quite different from natural departures.

Software and engine settings might be different.
I understand so why not just changing the software instead of decreasing the performances of the plane?

May be a different EEC software...
Fuel/Air ratio might be too lean to fly upper FL, therefore altitude limitation has been put in place to avoid flame-out...Just a guess.
Is there a difference between US and the EU?
If yes why not doing the same than in the US?

Re: Airbus A220 (ex-Bombardier CSeries) news

So from know on Swiss can not fly higher than 35.000 feet for security reasons linked to the engine problem.
Why can they fly higher in the US?
Delta is not affected and is still flying high with the same engines?
In fact if you look to flighradar24 they are not flying higher than 28.000 feet!

It's all very well to say the B787 and/or the A321 would be better fits for SN. However, I would like to see their comparative rent and operation costs with those of the current A330s.
For sure that's a good argument.

Re: Air Transport in Africa Outlook Q1 2019

Brazzaville-Nouakchott, opeated by Mauritania Airlines is probably one of the longest flight in Africa, with 4 stops (Pointe Noire, Libreville, Cotonou & Bamako). How an airline can get profit with this ? Better to fly from Brazzaville to Nouakchott via Paris Cdg, with Air France. This flights in m...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Luanda is one of them.... With few weekly flights to Luanda, CDG-Luanda is probably one of most profitable for Air France. Things have probably changed since early 2010s. However AF added a 3rd daily service to Luanda, few years ago. Flights are now operated with a mix B777-200ER / 300ER, A330-200 ...
