Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Dear atco’s, stop arguing that it’s not about money. It is about money. “Better working conditions” is just a cover-up to defend the disruption of service. Luckily someone leaked from those negociations: “we demand 32 hours, no time registration”. Some have asked why CEO Johan Decuyper hasn’t joined...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Senior aviation journalist Luk De Wilde is a moderate person and he doesn’t tweet “one-sided information”. He expresses what (almost) all other responsible parties in the whole aviation and travel industry think about these ongoing strikes: it’s scandalous. You have surpassed a limit that is unaccep...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

And if I may join the off-topic subject of Mr. Brel: "Les flamandes" and "Les flamingants" were written when he was a sick man already, one must mainly pity him in that stage. I have no problem in seeing a great artist in him, in his good days, though at the same time a spoilt brat and a despicable...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

No more Laatste Nieuws nor De Morgen on board since 1 April and that is not a joke! 😡 KLM: no more newspapers onboard as from 1st May 2019. Reason: passengers prefer own IFE / own smartphone, tablet or laptop 'distraction'. Once onboard, they don't read printed newspapers anymore. Het Laatste Nieuw...

Their debts have become that high (+1,2 Billion USD), that even the most optimistic businessplan can't rescue them. Thus: game over.

Re: Ryanair in 2019

Test-Aankoop / Test-Achats isn't protesting against the 25 € fee. Test-Aankoop / Test-Achats is protesting because it's a fixed charge, and therefore has to be shown at the beginning of the booking = when "the baby" has been added to the booking. Ryanair initially only states that a charge will show...
