Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Indeed, I think Bart made an error in its article, HKG is a codeshare hub. "Niky Terzakis proposera de nouvelles destinations via le hub de Hong Kong", that's what Le Soir wrote. Bart did not make an error; he said that Air Belgium would like to fly to Tokyo and Cebu, but did not specify whether it...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Bravo to Air Belgium and let's hope to see connections to TYO from October as mentioned in the article. As I understand it, the route to Tokyo (and to Cebu, Philippines) will be through a connecting flight in Hong Kong. Will that connecting flight be operated by Hong Kong Airlines? It seems that Ai...

Re: The Trump administration and aviation

Trump and Erdogan, two presidents with a big ego, have entered into a bitter row. What has this to do with aviation? Turkish Airlines (which was praising Erdogan in leaflets distributed on board after the failed coup d'état) has stopped advertising in the US... A neutral company would, on the contra...

Re: Direct flight vs Nonstop flight

Wasn't even "a" UA flight that required a change of plane though carrying the same flight number throughout? I seem to remember an LAX or SFO to IAD on a 75, then boarding on a 76 to cross the Atlantic and all on the same flight number! This was called a direct flight. This was falsely called a dir...

Re: Direct flight vs Nonstop flight

Let's start with the simplest case: a non-stop flight will bring you from A to B without any intermediate stop, even not a fuel stop (except for extraordinary circumstances: technical problems, adverse weather conditions, medical emergencies, etc.). A direct flight will also bring you from A to B, w...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2018

New pilot strikes at Air France ? The AF pilots don't like the idea to name the number 2 of Air Canada as new CEO of Air France-KLM. Because he is not French. But is it written somewhere that the CEO of AF-KL must be French? The decision doesn't belong to them, but to the shareholders and the board ...

I have questions now that Brussels Airlines becomes eurowings.

What with the frequent flyer programme?
Remember that you can still select Miles&More on SN. Which I do myself, since I also get M&M on my SN credit card!

Transatlantic routes

DL43 and SN501, both flying from BRU to JFK today at approximately the same time, have taken quite different routes over the Atlantic, Delta flying much more North than SN.

Can someone explain why? The winds are the same for everybody!
