Re: BrusselsAirlines - the TURBOPROPS will come!

Now please merge B Light and B Flex into a LH-style Economy and give us a sandwich and a drink and we're happy! that might only happen when and if LH will be 100% owner of SN. Although there is a rumour that LH is evaluating SN's b.light to implement within LH group. I'm not sure if this is just a ...

Re: BRU-CDG at risk?

A difficult point is the Brussels North-South link ("la jonction", "NZV" or "Noord-Zuidverbinding") which is heavily saturated, making it hard to continue a Paris-Brussels-South HST to the airport.
