Why would those colours be such a bad idea?
The current AF1-scheme is too iconic to be removed imho.

If there is one thing past crisisses have learned, things mostly return to business as usual once the crisis is over.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

I assume these are not all-cargo though. Why not? NH, VS, SK, 3U, UA,.... all fly passenger planes with cargo only to BRU and make money on it (I hope). And even if they do not make a lot of money on it, they keep at least some crew up-to-date in regards of flying hour requirements. UA takes some p...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I would take the information from the DH with a pinch of salt about this 2026 date. They also say that the tram 62 will bring you from North Station to the Airport in ... 30 minutes. The existing train takes 11 minutes. So 2026, maybe. After all we know how long anything takes over here. When JFK m...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

2026 is still a long time, but I wonder if this project is going to be build with the future public transportation facilities at BRU (e.g. renovated/new bus terminal, expanded train station,...)?

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

De Lijn is to create a new tram line from Brussels - North to Brussels Airport, from 2026, using the current 25 and 62 paths and should be built from 2023 the area from "Eurocontrol" to Brussels Airport. https://www.dhnet.be/regions/bruxelles/bruxelles-mobilite/une-ligne-de-tram-de-la-soc...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Quite unfair. If you want to compare entrances, take BRU's terminal buildings as example and not this temporary infrastructure which makes the tents actually a good thing. If it was more than temporary a more definitive construction would have been build. It's not unfair. This IS the entrance area ...

Re: OO-SGC: A new lease of life

Why did Sabena never buy the Combi's to operate into Africa? KL's Combi's offered more or less the same pax capacity as SN's A330's did/do but with more valuable cargo space. They were combi's... Google "Sabena 747 seatmap"... I believe Sabena even did the conversion of the 747-100's them...

Re: Future long haul destinations Brussels Airport

United just announced new long haul routes, also to Africa. If passengers can fly non stop between the US and Africa BRU won’t be needed anymore. Also last year people were pretty sure that United would launch flights between SFO and BRU. This was before COVID-19... What went wrong there? Quite a s...

Re: Impact of aviation on the Coronavirus crisis

On the other hand, travelling on a plane and refusing to wear a mask is even less acceptable. I don't know how such people could be named. Now let's move forward and discuss aviation. They should be named for what they are: unruly passengers. If it's up to me they should be kicked off the plane imm...

Re: Impact of aviation on the Coronavirus crisis

I wasn't referring to the mask you wear, that's entirely your choice. The way you address other people is more of an issue. Other people not wearing a mask or airlines ignoring the Covid rules are an even bigger issue. Sure, screaming at a complete stranger to put his fucking mask on is acceptable ...

Re: Impact of aviation on the Coronavirus crisis

I follow up and do not recommend people to fly from AMS. The Netherlands is far behind other countries on the mask wearing policy. People are not wearing masks in stores and supermarkets. Upon landing I was shocked to realise that the young monkey in his twenties behind me was not wearing his mask....
