Aegean Airlines

A new A320 NEO has been spotted in Toulouse doing test flights. A revised livery is expected. Improvements to IFE is also rumored. Normally on the 12th of December at SKG (Thessaloniki) there will be an unveiling of the new livery as well as S2020 destinations. A3 has a total of 20 A320 neos and 10 ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

They are still trying to define the reboot plan, I heard from the grapevine. Hopefully this is part of an optimisation of the network, because they could potentially earn more with better timings for different destinations. I know A3 (very different market) but it does stop some of its "year round r...

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

It didn't start because of the attacks and they overall did not do well in MUC.

Do we have any info about potential longhaul flights? Rumor SQ is looking at BOS, can they do a SIN-BRU-BOS like they do SIN-FRA-JFK or SIN-MAN-IAH

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Most EU airlines don't have 'extra'security to TLV it is, it is mainly EL AL. They wanted to fly to CPH but didn't start the route as the DK government refused to grant the Israeli's their own security staff for CPH airport. I don't think there is that much demand to Africa and Dublin. Also DUB I as...

Re: Austrian Airlines in 2019

SN should focus on itself and not wait till Austrian is profitable to do cuts itself. OS is 'technically' doing better than SN - bigger transfer market. But their bread and butter (Balkans and Eastern Europe) is getting trashed. With Wizz Air and Lauda especially, the O&D will not necessarily pick O...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I also concur that SN need better integration with other Star Alliance partners. Obviously for some partners it depends much more on LH (they also need an attitude shake up but that is just my opinion). I also wish that SN would collaborate much more with SNCB/NMBS. It would be nice to get some Euro...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If I may interject, the reboot plan means some reductions and streamlining. I don't mind that they cut unprofitable route or change timings but they have to keep the flow into their longhaul operations. I prefer a core lean network that brings in money (also in times of economic slow down/crisis). M...

I don't know about the freight train, but the trains going to Belarus, Ukraine and Russia the carriages get lifted and put on new bogies (wheels) that are for the broader gauge and vice versa

From a Greek aviation site - the translation is 186 seats the Neo's will have.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I'm not trying to give SN a free ride here - but another issue of delays is that of ATC, especially in Central Europe. Hungary has also major staff shortages, also in the Balkans and Greece. The CEO of Aegean also apologized to the customers in a personalized email. I have had this happen to me 2 ti...

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

It depends also on how you view it. If UA like DL are putting their brand new business class seats on the BRU routes it means that there is a strong healthy demand up front which is always good (take note LH). The downgrade can also make sense if they will start the SFO flight - which can mean less ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Hello everyone,, I totally agree with the posts above and André's article re SN and EW. I just want to add that the Star Alliance partners won't be too happy about the changes either imho: will the UA Chicago flight codeshare with SN or EW or both? SN for the pax from Dakar and EW for the pax from ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance, Oneworld and Skyteam under one roof?

What was happening to the Qatar flights that were mentioned in another topic that they wanted apparently to start trans Atlantic flights? Apparently, there were also other airlines interested from across the pond. Do we have any news that we can expect within the next couple of months?
