Within a few years JetBlue might start flying to Brussels (Article in Dutch).

Let's hope they'll go ahead and not with yet another NYC-BRU rotation. BOS-BRU might be a nice addition.

Re: Jet Airways' financial situation, can they be saved ?

How times can change... I still remember seeing those six 9W-jets lined up at the B-pier, hearing rumours about 9W taking a stake in BRU and acquiring SN to do European flying for them from their shared BRU-hub and 9W looking to multiply its then 42 weekly departures from BRU, flights from every maj...

Re: BRU Summer 2019: news, new routes, airlines

LH sees SN and BRU as a big obstacle. They best way for them was to take over SN. So one trouble less. With BRU they play it on the way to take as much as they can Star flights to their own airports in Germany. Well, there is a rationale behind it from their perspective. But trying to send everyone...

Re: King Philippe in Korea

Maybe giving Asiana the final push towards a direct ICN-BRU? That existed before, what makes you think they would come back? Back in 2017, during a mission of princess Astrid to South-Korea, Toerisme Vlaanderen already anounced the start of negociations between BRU and Asiana about a potential dire...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

since in my idea BRU would mainly serve a function as reliever hub to LHR, thus having smooth connections extra shengen. Problem is IAG purchased Aer Lingus for this purpose. BRU is right in the middle between three huge competing alliances hubs: AMS, CDG (ST) and FRA (*A). It might offer OW some o...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

TGV/ Eurostar connections easy to realize from BRU. Perhaps not so easy as implied: with its measly three platforms, the railway station is close to maximum capacity. It must be said, though, that this is at least partly due to its use as a terminal station: some trains occupy the platforms much lo...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance and Oneworld under one roof?

As you stated correctly, tunnel access is the major issue here, but the expansion to (even) 10 platforms won't be such an issue technically speaking. They could expand it westwards without too much of a hassle since the expansion would be under the current parking buildings and the old DHL building ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Hi JOVAN, thank you for your nice add. LH, CS, said even in own words that they don't want BRU to grow further bcs it's a rival in their backyard. If OW would want to grow at BRU, maybe with BRU acting as a reliever hub for LHR with BA starting an hourly shuttle service between BRU and LHR, update ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Maybe I was a bit to quick with my reaction yesterday. OS of course is in much bigger need of new equipment since their 767/777 are way older then SN's incoming A330-fleet, besides these fairly young birds are quite sufficient for SN ops... And LH wanting to get rid of thirsty A340's seems logical a...

Great stuff. Lufthansa hasn't announced yet which airline will get which aircraft. Lufthansa even says that this decision hasn't been taken yet. Luckily we have some Aviation24.be members for that scoop.
Ignorance is a bless. Just look at the damn rendering and keep denying the obvious. :roll:

Trump owns a Boeing 757. So he surely knows a bit more about aircraft then "not a thing".
