Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

Thank you very much for these figures! The performance of the long haul sector is impressive and makes me wonder : does it include the DUS ops for EW or only the SN ops @ BRU ? Also : Will they soon publish the SN figures among the network airlines of the LH Group? It does not include EW flights. I...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The 4 network carriers in the LH Group are all operating in a different way, they all have a hub and a network but there isn't a single strategy that can be used across all airlines. There are 4 different strategies. All airplanes operated from BRU by Brussels Airlines will be (re)painted in Brussel...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Would this wise decision not be partly due to the efforts and good work of the German CEO Christina Foerster? Partly, perhaps. But I'm sure the powerful influencers at luchtz^h^h^h^h^h aviation24.be contributed at least as much! Thanks! If you mean this article: https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/l...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Shame on me but I've thought to be seeing a taxiing Max from Tuifly one day, it appeared to be a 737NG with scimitar winglets... :oops: I thought Boeing only made them available on Max aircraft.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Saw a new (SN) maintenance vehicle at BRU in a hybrid SN/EW livery already. Now the aircraft livery is gradually changing to EW...I was wondering... Any news on when the crew is changing to their new uniforms? Does the SN crew based at DUS wear these uniforms already? These maintenance vehicles alr...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

Certainly not a good way to compete with AF on the Africa routes, as AF is refurbishing its A 330's with a new interior... Like I said, it was never intended to operate with the old cabins of CX and SIA. It is a last resort option in order to avoid cancelling 6 long haul flights a day (or operate w...

SNJ might be getting a new "Belgian icon" livery!
Do you have a good source? Or is this just a wild guess on your side? SNJ was painted in SN livery just one year ago.

From what I've heard, it's going to be either SNG or SNE.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Somewhere from around MSN 500 the standard range capability increased dramatically for the A330-300, at least 1300nm more than the early birds like SFO-M-N-V-W. SFK (MSN 570) is one of earlier birds that had the increased MTOW modification standard in the production line, up until then it was up to ...

All flights to be managed by the long-haul competence centre in Brussels!
What is your source for this?
Afaik, SXD flights are not in any way managed from Brussels.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

It has nothing to do with insider knowledge. Big Brother is/was a reality show. One of the participants, Betty, started working as a flight attendant for Brussels Airlines earlier this year, this has gained widespread attention in the (mainly Flemish) media.

The 4 A330 that will join for EW ops are 701 (SFJ), 570 (SFK), 645 and 648, all by the end of next year. The 2 A340's are going to leave the fleet next year.

How can SN's share get lower when its increase in May was 5.3% while BRU increased only by 2.4% ?
5.3% is compared to some month 1y ago.
Market share at BRU is compared to last month.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

There is an SLA clause in the contract, if it is not met due to technical failures, Brussels Airlines will be (financially) compensated in some way or another. That is of course no use for the passengers which journey is delayed... Anyway, I heard rumours that the CItyjet contract will not be renewe...

That's the whole point of the long haul renewal exercise. The "new" aircraft are just arriving a few months too soon.

SFE will apparently sit idle for a few months before being introduced to the fleet. Any specific reason why this is, and whether the same thing will happen to SFD? SFD's cabin will be cannibalised to refit SFC. SFD will be stored until next winter when the new cabin is going to be installed. SFE is...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

[BTW, what are EW pilots salaries compared to SN's?] Gross salary is similar, although I don't know exactly about per diems or duty pay of Eurowings, I expect this to be similar as well. German taxes are very likely to be lower (I don't know the German system, but the Belgian system is one of the w...
