Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

They wanted/bought SN for their ridiculous Eurowings project. Now that has failed they don't have a clue what to do with it.

Maybe they should just sell it to a company that is genuinely interested in BRU's home carrier. IAG? AF-KL?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I am very curious about the plan LH has for SN... Will the airline finally be treated like a family member or still like an unwanted child?

They have ordered up to 40 new B787/A350 for everyone

... except SN.

Re: Belgian Air Force news

Let's hope these Falcons get a nice livery (so not the boring one the Embraers or A321 have).

Just to compare: this is the Dutch government jet

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Ok, let me explain. As you probably knows, BAC bought the Sheraton in front of the airport some time ago. Real Estate is a big part of the airports portfolio. Two major reasons for this: the hotel has most of the time full capacity, sold out and second, when you are owner of it, you can do with it ...

Please explain? Has the entrance to the airport on bus level changed? (last time I checked it was 1 little door...)

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

With all due respect……………. LOL !!! This is worse than amateur window dressing from BRU. I hope BAC realises the urgency of getting a new departures area ASAP. Apart from the vague, dreamy "2040" plans I haven't seen a single real, tangible plan. The current drop off, taxi and bus area are absolutel...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

The temporary drop off zone is indeed temporary bcs like I wrote earlier, the new drop off zone will be much closer to the terminal. Where will it be then? At the (old) location, where it was before the attacks? I'm curious about the renovation of the current terminal, but I'm disappointed they don...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

As long as Air Belgium choses to fly from CRL, I don't see a bright future for them. Air Belgium seems more like a political project than a proper airline. Too bad.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

As a livery change is a big PR-operation for an airline, I don't believe this is the new livery. A new livery doesn't just show up without any communication or publicity campaign.

It's just a temporary solution. Please move on :)

It looks unfinished and temporary. As there is no official communication from SN, I don't believe this is the new livery.

Re: Belgian Air Force news

Quite a weird air parade without Falcon, AlphaJets and SeaKing... With a good reason: these aircraft have all been phased out. Instead, we had the NH-90s, and a historical Spitfire: it doesn't happen so often! And the tricolour fumes from F-16s is also a new feature, as well as the national flag ha...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

What's happening with the blue coming from the tail to the fuselage? Not sure yet, but likely to disappear. I hope not! What's the point in keeping the brand Brussels Airlines, if they give it an unfinished livery?? When they go for the brand, they should go all the way by giving it a decent livery...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

People, that picture is obviously just an unfinished (temporary) paintjob... Just forget it.

In the meantime... I couldn't resist making this 787 :mrgreen:

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I did some photoshop (I'm not an expert) and these are the changes I would like to see (or think that will happen): - bigger titles - no b-logo on the fuselage - all white fuselage (LH Group standard) - smaller b-logo on the tail (much more classy than the big, bulky one we have today) - no gradient...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I absolutely agree on the incompetence of BAC management. In any normal company there should be consequences after these numerous failures in keeping your core business running. Where is Arnaud Feist, the CEO ? No explanation, no communication, no plan to prevent this in the future. He's nowhere to ...

And what would that improve on the luggage handling?? If you build a new terminal, you can build a new state of the art baggage handling system underneath. Clearly the current system can't cope with huge numbers of bags (almost every single exceptionally busy day it fails). Some drastic decisions a...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I also think SN is going to get an updated livery. If it will have an all white fuselage, I hope the titles will be bigger (just like OS and LX). I found this image online with actual bigger titles and it looks quite good. https://sjc1.discourse-cdn.com/infiniteflight/uploads/default/original/3X/7/4...
