Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

The question was not "will the name change?", but "is it official that the name will change?". Hence I posted that Spohr has said to Luk De Wilde that it's up to the Brussels Airlines CEO to decide. Will the (probable) gain from international markets overpass the (probable) loss on the Belgian market?

Re: The Trump administration and aviation

A neutral company would, on the contrary, advertise heavily how cheap Turkey has become after the devaluation of its money caused by the tweets of Trump! It's not caused by some tweets: it's caused by months of ongoing stupidity from Erdogan, mainly his refusal to raise local intrest rates. As a re...

Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018 - cockpit strike 10 August

First mistake from Ryanair's lawyers: when the judge said it was strange that Ryanair went only to court in the Netherlands, they had no explanation for that. Not even a lazy excuse. So it's quite obvious that the Dutch judge was pissed off: Ryanair suggested that the Dutch judge would rule against ...

Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018 - cockpit strike 10 August

You can't blame Ryanair for not respecting, on 6th August, a court verdict that is issued 3 days later. The decision to relocate pilots to Eindhoven and Amsterdam was taken before the court verdict. If you read the verdict as a whole, it's clear that Ryanair's lawyers didn't prepare their thing dece...
