Re: BRU Winter 2019-2020: news, new routes, airlines

An article in check-in.dk Icelandair will increase capacity to Europe in the winter seasons 19/20. Brussels is one of the most noticeable increases together with Copenhagen, Dublin and Berlin. I think there is an implied measurement of 3% but I am not sure if in this article it relates just to CPH o...

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?

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

I think AC should do all the Canada flying, doing Toronto and Montreal daily, and maybe add Vancouver for a good mix. LH should finally grow up and let AI (no matter their financial situation since they are government-backed) start a route to India. Let United add Houston, Denver, San Francisco to t...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

It sounds like they want to save face more than anything. Apparently, Eurowings should continue long haul as a brand, but not fly the routes - whatever that means (seems like what SN/Sunexpress do today). But also from FRA and MUC?! My gut feeling is that there are rumblings in the HQ of LH group. S...

Re: Ryanair in 2019

Rumors circulating that FR may base 4 737s in Vie - Lauda (OE) has too high of a cost structure base and they have to present a plan to lower their costs. As I say rumor for now.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

You probably can't say anything, but even a small hint if we will get some new routes or airlines would be nice or some sort of expansion by existing carriers would be nice. You don't have to say who or to where, but just a yes or a no would suffice.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I also think what you Rwandan-flyer said is correct. Why not open new routes that have limited competition and earn also more money and also focus on the European network at the same time.

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

I'm afraid the whole business plan of Air Belgium has turned out to be a failure. They want to be a low-cost airline in a situation where Belgium is already invaded by numerous low-cost airlines, and with our "national carrier" being transformed into a low-cost also... Secondly, they chose to fly l...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I am happy also with the developments. However, SN is not out of the woods just yet. I agree that "turnaround plan" doesn't sound like they are doing great. On the other side of that coin, I also believe that it will also focus on how to reintegrate SN with the network carriers with minimal cost. Ac...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Not fantastic, but if it was the strong part of the entire EW mess, it is good they split. As CF said "Happily single, but time to go to the gym." My feeling is to make profits with what they have now, and growth will come later (be that new routes, more aircraft, etc...).

Re: Loop: Brussels Airlines' new frequent flyer programme

I oddly get a different idea. As much as I have read here, I have the feeling since more and more people are flying SN they want to retain that group of fliers. To me, I don't think anything will change with the planing but I have the feeling LH is getting into a bind with the amount of people flyin...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

CityJet has had also many problems with SAS with many cancellations, it doesn’t seem it is just related to the Sukhoi Super Jets. Maybe it’s an organisational issue of the company. So SAS has no put on pressure on CityJet to up their game. Here’s the article in Danish but behind a paywall: https://w...
