Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The relative low liquidity % of LHG has much to do with the fact that they have, compared to the other traditional majors, by far the biggest share of the fleet owned - a strategy that draws away a lot of cash (and that's why many now say LH could raise more cash by doing sale-and-leasebacks on thei...

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/aer...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

OK, a positive article for once.

Cost cutting already visible. No more free complimentary meals and drinks on Flex and fast!
Which shouldn't have come as a complete surprise, Flex&Fast has been on sale excluding complimentary catering since July (so even before the Reboot plan) for flights as from this winter season.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Can you then explain that SN is still not mentionned as STAR Member ? That's simply a mistake (unless it talks about something Star Alliance related not used/offered by/applicable to SN - I don't see the full page/ad), nothing to do with SN being part of whatever in the LHG corporate structure.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Besides being the most recent A320 to join SN's fleet, OO-SNN is also effectively the youngest A320 in the fleet (9 years younger than OO-SNA) and owned by LHG contrary to most others in SN's A32F fleet. Two factors which are quite certainly more important than the livery... In case SN has an excess...

When will we learn more about this "Reboot" plan? End of september or end of 2019?
I assume something in between probably before something substantial will be known on a large scale (=external communication and/or leaks from staff talking to media).

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Pretty lame strategy if you ask me... SN needs investments to grow, not the least on the one market that kept them afloat for many years. Imho the issue is not that SN gets (fairly recent) second hand aircraft, but the fact that LH first expects a big return on investment before investing in the co...
