Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

And this is the root cause of the linguistic problems in Belgium. Will any Walloon company translate every communication in Dutch if they have no sites situated in Flanders? I doubt it. But when french speaking people come to work or live in Flanders they want any communication in French. Why? beca...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

So typical of certain Belgians, especially in Brussels: when federalisation suits them, they'll use all of it, as in the case of the Brussels noise regulation. When they find it less convenient, they'll cry murder. NB the remark about Frau Foerster is quite relevant, though! You make a mistake, it ...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

Is there a chance that Emirates starts flying with the A380? In one word: NO! There simply isn't a market for a capacity larger than the two daily 777-300ERs. I understand I will not discuss your knowledge but their market seems huge knowing Brussels has only 5 links to Asia.( even not daily) If yo...

Re: BRU Winter 2019-2020: news, new routes, airlines

I don't understand why they don't go for 2 flights a day to connect with the long haul flights? If necessary with a smaller plane it's maybe time to add some propeller so they could keep Nantes also and open some new destinations. Knowing there is no restriction in BRU about slots it's really a car...

My experience lately with Brussels Airlines is really bad I had no cancellation this year but I took the plane 10 times from Brussels to Africa and for all those flight's it didn't go on time.

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

Just a question how do they do with the passengers to FIH?
There are not enough seats to put them all to the flight of the next day!

To North American destinations it's easier but for the African destinations do they put them on Air France?

This will for sure greatly impact SN's financials and its operations. They have adapted their A32F fleet capacity in accordance to the Thomas Cook take-over. If Tho...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

They wanted/bought SN for their ridiculous Eurowings project. Now that has failed they don't have a clue what to do with it. Maybe they should just sell it to a company that is genuinely interested in BRU's home carrier. IAG? AF-KL? They bought SN even before there was any Eurowings low-cost projec...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

The present utilisation is rather unfortunate: the IC trains from Dinant and Charleroi have the airport station for their terminus, which makes them stand there for quite a long while which is not a very efficient way to use this expensive infrastructure. There should be more trains like the Antwer...
