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

Do we really need all of this, knowing it knocks away the critical mass to support big and healty home based airlines with route networks beyond just the obvious routes to Malaga, Barcelona, Rome etc? Healthy home based airline? Did you miss reboot? As for Transavia, I wouldn’t underestimate them, ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

not sure how long OS will keep that service as they're also in Reboot now... little by little complimentary inflight service will dissapear while pushing flexibility and priority boarding forward (exactly like the LCC are offering already) The most profitable airline group in Europe (IAG, in case s...

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.

Next Thursday is November 7th . What a nice touch to pick that date and not a day before or after. :cry: Why? On 7th Nov 2001, Sabena was declared bankrupt. 7/11 is the end of the 'silence period' and publication of the LHG 3rd interim report 2019 (JAN-SEPT) - that's the primary reason. As from tha...

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...

But 3 hours later as SFD was put on the JFK service, she was replaced by Foxtrot for OUA/ABJ. But because Foxtrot had been planned for Dakar, it is OO-SFK that was put on line for this SN205...

The question is what will happen with the Belgian activities, after all it's not because TC goes bankrupt that the market is gone.

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

I'm rather astonished to see the little reactions regarding Thomas Cook / Neckermann future financial woes... and possible bankruptcy. This will for sure greatly impact SN's financials and its operations. They have adapted their A32F fleet capacity in accordance to the Thomas Cook take-over. If Tho...

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...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Bcs you are convinced that SN still will get planes from LH. SN will get planes from LH if it has the financial performance to justify growth and/or fleet renewal. That's what I'm saying. In other words, at this moment: no. CS is also not a favorite of OS and has to show him also better results, bu...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The decision of LH to replace old A330 by newer second hand A330 was long time ago taken. Now the situation is completely different... Oh yes the situation changed, the decision was taken end 2016/early 2017, since then the (structural) financial performance of SN only got worse. And not for reason...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

There is a lot of criticism on SN which I understand, but 1 thing I really don't get, why everyone is so obsessed with the leisure network. The 2 simply complement each other with the very big majority of the flights being operated in off-peak times and periods for feeding and business traffic. Sure...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

According to CS you have to make a profit first before you are entitled to new investments. Remember ? So far for the level playing field and for those who still believe what the guy says. Just a few remarks: - These A333's are (profitably) operated by SN under ACMI and contribute to a future more ...

Flights coming from those so called one-stop-security countries allow transfer pax to go directly back up to the departures level of Pier B (so no security or passport check), if you connect onwards to non-Schengen you either just stay in Pier B or take the B to T bus transfer to T zone.
