There seems to be no replacement provided for them at this moment since only 7 "new" planes have been announced (besid...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

OO-SFN arrived this morning from DSS as SN206. It was the last commercial flight for SFN! OO-SFN currently on its way to BRU from DSS as SN206 :) . It was brought back from retirement late this morning (some time was needed to remove the mothballs I presume ;) ) for the SN205 flight. Last excursion?

Re: 2018 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

Quite unbelievable to see what LGG became in a couple of years. Amazing job. Amazing indeed! Over the first three quarters of this year the airport has handled 628,500 tonnes. In 2017 LGG’s total volume was 717,000 tonnes. Excellent! I would think space might soon begin to be limited on the LGG sit...

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

I understand the reasoning behind it from a purely accounting reasoning, knowing that Brussels Airlines figures will -in future- increasingly reflect less the isolated situation within just one commercial entity due to the spin off of cargo operations, the opening of several bases elsewhere (or wha...

I wonder if AB will consider flying at least to BOS and in the evening to NYC now that the competition is gone for those flights.
1. Someone here said they'd have a hard time obtaining rights to fly to the US.
2. If they do obtain the rights, will they dare to fly from/to CRL?

Re: The CityJet Sukhoi SSJ100-95 saga is hurting Brussels Airlines

It looks like reliability is way up now. I got the same impression. Perhaps SN should look at maintaining the cooperation and ask for a clause with big compensation for each delay/cancellation in the form of rebates on the monthly ACMI charges. The SSJ fits well in SN's operations, the aircraft can...

Concerning the "info", we can not find anymore the type of aircraft operating amongst other changes except for cargo flights.. gtz paul You can now find this when you click on the flight or 'details' and then somewhere on the right! :) Sorry, but this is not enough!

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Can't agree more with you. However, if ACMI is their only option, why calling themselves Air Belgium? This seems ridiculous. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Air Belgium is: - a Belgian company with its seat in Mont-Saint-Guibert, - based at a Belgian airport, - initially planned to fly scheduled fligh...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Can I just throw this in: the new website www.brusselsairport.be is superb. The difference is like day and night with the (horrible) previous one.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Another and perhaps even better option could be to install barriers at the entrance of the (former) drop off zone. When you arrive, you take a ticket, you get 10 minutes free drop off, when you leave, at the exit barrier you put your ticket in the machine. If you did not exceed your free ten minute...

Re: Can Belgian airlines be successful ?

It's already a rather small market, and with EIN, DUS,... close enough to nibble some more off of that market. Furthermore: Belgium is too small for regional/national traffic, all flights are to other countries so you have to compete with foreign airlines, and when you're competing on routes to cou...

I normally travel by motorbike => no traffic jams, no parking issues, no money needed. (also when travelling with Luggage!). I assume you park your motorbike somewhere.
