Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Rumors are that many SN staff signed up for the severance packages, some amounting to 6 digits and years worth of salary, but there is no money to pay for them, and that LH is waiting for money from the Belgian government to pay these severance jackpots. If true, it's time to shut down this clown s...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I believe (correct me if I am wrong) this is the first time the Brussels Airlines is included in the Network Airlines traffic figures:

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Why fly to Newark? Let a second daily flight be flown by UA and look for another use for that equipment... Wow, is this the real Belgian attitude? After a lot of sad news in which a lot of people will loose their job, there are some (vague) prospects for growth and new destinations after the corona...

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2020

@737MAX: You don't have to feel offended. I wrote "some other members", this board almost exclusively discusses SN, almost nothing about TB is discussed, while it is the 2nd largest Belgian based airline. TUI fly deserves more attention on this board. Numbers are numbers, these are objective. In the...

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2020

TUI Airlines Belgium has just reported a terrible (financial) year: a loss of 74.559.513 €, Thanks for the info. I hope this also opens the eyes of some other members on this board. The max grounding is only one part of the story, the lease/loan is around $300k/month, or $14.4mill a year for 4 a/c....

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Unfortunately the consolidated loss does matter as, it’s in the books: 90 million plus 40 for 2019. During the years you quote debt went up from 400 to 500 million and 125 million state aid was converted into junk shares The marginal profit was based on unsustainable growth.

Please get your numbers right. Brussels Airport had 72,904 transit passengers in 2019, even if all of them would have flown with SN, that would mean that 0,7% of their passengers are transit.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Funny, you want to dump TUI who has been the best pupil in the TUI branch, who went sustainably in 16 years time from 4 old B737 to a fleet of 31 most of them factory new b737 and B787... But you are ok with dumping public money in a company that hasn’t made a profit in nearly its whole existence, ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I could understand BRU would postpone some investments but I do hope they'll go ahead with expansion plans like A-pier West. You'll need top tier facilities in order to attract (keep attracting) airlines. Why would BRU do that? 2019 passengers levels are probably only coming back by 2023 to 2025, h...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I read that Air Belgium is flying Belgians home from Argentina. Absolutely great, but why isn't Brussels Airlines doing this? Hi, it's a wild guess, but maybe because they BRU-based A330's don't have a cargo crew rest? OO-SFP has been transferred to BRU yesterday, maybe for this purpose? Flying car...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SFX is finished since last week, it’s paperwork stuff that’s holding back the release.
SFH is indeed in Amman to get its new cabin.
It could/should go somewhat smoother indeed... :?
