Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The impact of Wamos taking over Neckermann is not completely clear yet, but at least there is hope that they will take over some Thomas Cook business. Wamos have an ultra low cost airline branch, so either SN will have to offer very cheap flights either they will operate the flights themselves by f...

Saudia Cargo adds Liège Airport to its network https://aircargoworld.com/allposts/saudia-cargo-adds-liege-airport-to-network/ Really sad that they left BRU because of the noise restrictions of the Brussels capital. Cargo is really suffering Not only due to the noise restrictions in this case.

in case of a snowstorm grounding the plane my bet is on IAD rather than BRU.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Just a though, but could the long MX time have something to do with the lack of spares for the new type of engines and so on?
I can imagine that supplies are low for the moment as they are switching to the newer A333 type. Especially if it's involving some less prone to fail pieces.

As long as Air Belgium choses to fly from CRL, I don't see a bright future for them. Air Belgium seems more like a political project than a proper airline. Too bad.
They needed a reason to extend the runway, don't think anyone else was candidate to play such a role.

What about cargo? I don't know whether FIH is a route where a lot of cargo goes along too, bringing some revenue for SN? If a route isn't profitable with pax alone, a nice cargo deal might tip the balance?
Did they create cargo capacities in CRL? (handling and whs)

Hi Fly plans to grow its fleet to 100 aircraft over the next 10 years, including adding more A380s. More A380s? They barely use the only one they have now. Maybe it will be like the A340. Regular operators don't like it but ACMI operators have other variables they like more in these undesirable pla...
