Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Just wondering, OO-SFB has been in brussels for a really long time now, is it going to be repainted soon in Brussels Airlines colors? LOL only 2 weeks, repaint is not in the pipeline yet as they need all the planes in their daily operations ... especially with SFU being grounded SFY won't go out if...

Maybe SN should open a route to India again.. Less competition hehe
(I know they aren't going to)
At least the SN Toronto flights should benefit from the withdrawal of 9W, but probably only a little as they were mostly continuation flights from India.

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

@Phoenixx Thanks for your reply. Regarding the fake sick leaves, I'm certainly not saying they're all fake. However, the existence of some fake sick leaves was mentioned and almost officially confirmed by a union member, if I'm not mistaken. Anyway, as "mvg" said hereabove, we all want this crazy an...

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

@Phoenixx I always tend to believe most people are honest and sincere. You have given above a number of plausible explanations, but you should understand that combining strikes, fake sick leaves and genuine lack of staff is a bit of an "explosive" cocktail. The management certainly seems to be at fa...

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

Well, it's true that the number of SN pax for the month can't possibly be 295000 (it was above 624000 last month)! It would be easy for LH/SN to prevent that confusion! :roll: Yes, it would be easy, but Lufthansa categorically refuses to do so. And since LH owns 100% of SN, the latter can only comp...
