Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

First point, about border control: not under the control of BAC or mr. Feist. The authorities fail to attract and keep enough staff to man the boxes. It is not "the Authorities" who fail to etc. It is the local commander(s) who reign in their own little kingdom. It is very much like local heads of ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

The thing is, within the LH group you have two airlines with a white/blue colorscheme (LH, SN) and two white/red (LX, OS). Getting them all a white fulesage makes it easier and more cost effective to change aircraft within the group when they'd only have to paint the tail and the titles. But it woul...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I think they already do; but not on the flight between there 2 home airports itself as the Russians forbid it for some financial reason of unsettled accounts dating back to the days of SABENA? Or was that ANA? Could very well be the same issue. I thought it had something to do with European/Russian...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Off topic, but an update, my folks got their bags... with a delay of 2,5 days and a distaste for SN and BRU... I know SN isn’t at fault here... but try to explain that to 2 70+ people...

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

Building a new terminal - of course never a bad idea, basically! - cannot be planned on 1-2-3 anyway. Yet the present issues cry for immediate remediation. So, while the strategies management may ponder the new terminal, the tactical management will have to look into the luggage handling issue, and...

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

Maybe those planes who are subject to C- and D-checks can have a useful life beyond 25 years right because of these checks? And even then... A reliable airline with skilled maintenance crews can fly around 20+ years old planes like SN did but it comes at a risk of having a low reliability right beca...

And what would that improve on the luggage handling??
An entirely new system. Although updated throughout the years, it basicly still is a 25 year old system.

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

Come on BRU, stop the amateurism. Demolish the Swissport building adjacent to the busparking and build a new state of the art terminal. And afterwards, gradually give the existing infrastructure a thorough renovation. Stop wasting money on (f.e.) some ugly white striping on the departure curb and BA...

Then again, LH in its new livery has a tale similar to SN and Austrian has red on the end of the fuselage as well. Only SN and LX carry an all white fuselage.
SN has rather a white livery on the top of the fuselage and a light blue livery on the bottom.
I know.

All white fuselage is the standard on LH Group aircraft: easy change from one airline to the other.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I am probably one of the few but I've always liked a eurowhite livery. In my opinion it adds soms class to the airline.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SN will not be considered a 'real' network airline as they won't expand the BRU hub a lot. SN will most probably only expand in Africa and if needed for Africa also in the US. That's it.They won't become a network airline like SWISS with destinations in most of the continents. That's why they call ...

It's clear to me that there will be no Eurowings in Brussels Brussels Airlines will have to develop a bigger hub to survive I d...

If SN is now re-integrating the Network-Airlines, why would they apply a very different on board catering practice than their three "brothers" or "sisters" ?

Sn Will not be a network-airlines.

Impressive summary, Atlantis. They are worth looking at, because Delta has always been a strong contender in BRU with its two major hubs in JFK and ATL drawing throngs of travellers.
