Just wondering when Atlantia will announce that their conditions haven't been met. When d...

Re: Thomas Cook ceases trading; UK CAA launches giant programme to fly its customers home

The Wamos division in Belgium (Neckermann) will be focusing on selling packages of other tour operators like Pegase etc. They are, for the moment at least, not having own package deals. Transport is thus offered by an agreement with one of the tour operators. SN commercial department will have a ha...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Air France’s “monoply” for Bamako is one 787 on a triangle flight: Paris-Bamako-Abidjan-Bamako-Paris (AF520/AF521). What’s in there for Brussels Airlines, if they would fly to Bamako too and if Air France is unwilling to cancelling some of their flights: 75 pax per flight? 100 perhaps? But please, k...
