Re: Airlines suspending or readjusting China routes due to Coronavirus

Not that surprising at all, an airbase is easier to maintain the quarantine. The logistics could have a severe impact on operations of a civil airport. Busses need to be able to meet the passengers on tarmac while maintaining a secure perimeter. Depending of the number of busses and the size of the ...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

I still believe the problem of BRU lies with the shareholders. Dividend that BRU is keeping for them is extremely high. ( about 5 times what AMS is paying ). My information says BRU payed 93 million, CDG 173 million and AMS 117 million over 2018. AMS and CDG are multiple times larger thus BRU’s div...

Re: The Thomas Cook bankruptcy and its aftermath

"Other"? But not TUI I guess? Which airlines are mainly/usually used by those "other" package tour operators? Or is it really a big blend of all companies? I don't know about all commercial deals between tour operators and airlines. One tour operator can have dozens of them depending on the number ...

So, Wamos took over the Neckermann offices and they are open again.
If you book there, which airline do u fly with? Still SN?
Any news on that?
The airline selected by the tour operator that assembled the package you bought. They only offer vacations by other tour operators for now.

I flew in fast and flex in August with complimentary catering included!
I think it is more to do with the time you ordered the tickets. If you have a ticket including a meal they just can't tell you last minute: "sorry but you will not get what you paid for."

Re: Strikes worldwide (except Belgium) in 2019

For those two SN-flights, which flights are cancelled/delayed? Or where these planes otherwise just standing still at BRU? There are less flights during the winter schedule, thus planes are easily available. Why don't they use those available planes in the winter schedule to (new) "business destina...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

None of those stands had double boarding bridges in the past, I feel like you’re thinking of 233. That stand is A380 capable, with double bridges. Whether or not double bridges will be installed, I have no clue, but I do think others on this forum might. 233 is a triple bridge A380 capable gate. On...

Re: Brucargo 2019: cargo routes & news

Did Saudia leave Brussels completely? And why it was a long term client! Thanks They moved towards Germany if I'm not mistaken. The same reason as why others have left: A combination of service levels and/or freight demand. One as a consequence off the other. (I just can conclude that some things w...

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.

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.
