Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

If money is the issue, they'd have done OO-SFH in the same style as OO-SFF, all white belly with only the b-tail and name...

I guess it's going to be repainted somewhere else. After all it's still the basic CX-scheme with a white tail.

Any plans to give OO-SFH a new livery? or is it going to fly on like that?
I can't imagine it will be flying around like that. Not even a tail logo...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

This last part you have to explain me bcs this makes no sense at all. What has the remove of shareholders to do to in extra flights to the US or in the benefit if BRU as a gateway??? You really want to go back to the ancient time that L. Van den Brande was CEO with the state as main shareholder??? ...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

Regardless of how you think BRU is doing you can't blame a single person or entity. Everyone needs to work together to have a big hub in a small country and the needed vision simply isn't there. Compare not only the airport ownership with AMS but what recently happened after AFKL tried to fire the ...

Ajax & AMS : huge potential and getting better and bigger, reasonable dividend paid to shareholders. Shareholders acting more responsibly, thinking about future. Not quick bucks.

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

For UA, BRU is a real hub, not a mini-hub as something like this is not existing. By next year an other new flight should be added, SFO. UA just announced DUB from SFO for summer 2020. Sadly it’s unlikely BRU will Be announced separately at a later time. :( https://thepointsguy.com/news/united-nons...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

Unbelievable. About three years after the biggest terror attack ever in Belgium, the airport has not only recovered, but also has set a new passengers record. But some people suggest it's not that good at all... Congratulations, Brussels Airport! I fully agree. But I can't stop wondering where BRU ...

Mind you, there is even no mention of a 5G network.
What is mentioned is a 5G-ready network - whatever that may mean.
Network up and running but no equipment?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Under the motto 'if you can't beat them, join them': SN and Aeroflot to codeshare on the SVO-BRU route (flights as from 20/01). Connections at both sides possible with through check-in of luggage etc. (so seemingly interlining beyond the SVO-BRU route) https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/aeroflot/ae...

Indeed , SFX only got the premium cabin in AMM
And that took almost 2 months!!!? :o
I suppose they did the c-check aswell ;)
If so, why not install the entire new SN product? Is SFX to leave the fleet? I thought it was one of the newer birds?

Re: BRU Winter 2020-2021: news, new routes, airlines

I'd more question the ME3-operations at BRU as they mainly rely on connecting passengers. Thai has recently added a 6th frequency. I'm pretty sure they knew it was only a matter of time when SQ would announce the BRU-resumption. Let's hope for a new connection to India and South Korea. The A350-900...

Re: BRU Winter 2020-2021: news, new routes, airlines

Hopefully the return of SQ to Brussels does not hurt TG too much. As I travel alot between Vietnam and Belgium, the return of SQ is a nice alternative to Thai and Cathay but I am not sure if three airlines serving the same area (TG, CX and SQ) is sustainable in the long run. I wouldn’t be scared of...

Re: BRU Winter 2020-2021: news, new routes, airlines

Not to trash the party, I'm extremely happy to see SQ return to BRU, but I am not sure the local market can support EK, EY, QR, TK and on top of that CX, SQ and TG. I'll exclude China and Japan carriers and just mention the likes of FI & SU who are also tending on that hub & spoke model towards tha...
