Re: Airbus A350 XWB news

^^ Good example for Belgium. We should buy 1 long range jet for all military and VIP transportation, in stead of hiring all-white A330's from a Portuguese private company. It's embarrassing. Belgium will get an A330MRTT. But will this plane have a 'Belgian' livery (it will be owned by NATO if I rem...

The new part of the terminal for OW with direct access to the A-Concourse and the "old part" of the terminal to Star with direct access to the B-conco...

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

No new aircraft for Brussels Airlines so it seems :cry: Nobody knows. Lufthansa Group says that the allocation of the new aircraft among its airlines will be decided later. As well as the seat configuration (although I fear a 9-across seating in the Economy class of the 787). The rendering in the a...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Brussels Airlines introduced their new cabin with a touch of "Art Nouveau". This includes new seats for all classes, an overall new style of the cabin and a bar in the galley for the business class passengers. https://www.brusselsairlines.com/en-be/practical-information/travel-info/on-board/travel-...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Obviously the decision to rename Brussels Airlines to Eurowings (in Europe) is already taken a long time ago. They are just (cowardly) not willing to admit it to avoid problems at this stage. So we can say goodbye to Brussels Airlines in Europe. We will no longer be able to fly in Europe on an airli...

Re: 25-26-27-28/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

It's time for Laurent Levaux (president Aviapartner Belgium) to go. He clearly isn't competent at all. Maybe it's time for a more Flemish/Northern European style management.
