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

It definitely happens and better than many other EU airports. But afaik there are still transfers where a unnecessary check happens because of limitations of the airport design, i.e. when arriving from the US you have to clear security while there is no legal or practical reason for this other than...

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

Fair enough, kzaant, no worries. Still, info from @Atlantis is usually quite dependable, I seem to understand this person works at the airport, possibly somewhere in the cargo business. You can't compare him/her to the "geeks" who indeed enjoy daydreaming - even if there's nothing wrong with that, ...

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

Time to start part 4 where to place the airlines and Alliances under the big roof of BRU. As we discussed before which airlines and destinations we can expect, it is time to discuss where they will be in this whole picture. BTW some of the airlines/destinations which were discussed before are in th...

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

Why would an airport care about the alliances and their placement? The only reason would be to accommodate transferring passengers and limit their connection time. But having the connecting passengers walk through your revenue-generating mall, and on the other hand keeping Shengen/non-Shengen split...

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

Will the B-pier be equiped with double loadbridges as well or will they replace 1 on 1 with just new bridges? Hi Conti764, In 2017 the Board decided to replace all 24 boarding and de boarding bridges at pier B. The total investment at that time was around 52 million euro. This to meet the demands o...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

So the Ansett member predicts CS will sell SN ...one day... but to whom? And the PttU member thinks that LH only keeps SN ...making money...so that another operator does not land at BRU and threatens LH! Two opposing strategies ...two strategies that do not help the development of BRU... Not necess...

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

Since UA has 'some' hub activity at BRU (f.e. they do their own check-in if I'm not mistaken) maybe they could fly from one of their current destinations-BRU-BOS and back if the market is there?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

LH works closely with ET... I wonder why. Having SN do the Africa flying strengthens one of the currently weaker members of the group and keeps all revenue in house. I have always said LH made a mistake bringing SN under EW-umbrella and was very negative about any plans they had with SN. But especia...

Brussels airport was more interested in communicating the lowest possible number left bags than solving the problem. So you mean to say that the spokeswoman had to fix the...

And why are they to be paid more? It is a very luxurious environment to work at, compared to many other places they are deployed at. No hardship at all! Security risk?

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I'm not sure boring is the right term. Repitive covers it better, I guess. And they have to stay focused since everybody who entered but wasn't supposed to can be traced back to the officer who let him in. And all that with hundreds or even more people queuing and being pissed off (understandably) a...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Why don't federal "policemen" like to work at BRU ? The answer to this question is crucial to solve the problem. A simple (simplistic) solution to the problem is money. They will love to work at BRU if they are paid more (for instance, through bonuses). There is no money you will say. OK, the let's...

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.
