2 extraordinary general assemblies are planned today : one at SOWAER followed by another one at LiegeAirport.
Maybe a way to circumvent the minority veto right of ADP at the Board? ;)

It looks like ADP has a conflict of interests here. In such a case, their representatives on the Board of LGG should normally abstain if there is a vote on the Alibaba matter.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Why is that? Don't ask me, ask the management! But it might well be because they need some cash. As far as I know AB is not operating any cheaper than for example Wamos is Edit: pricing any cheaper is better than “operating” Are there more or less established rates and terms for ACMI contracts?

Re: Eurowings in 2018

Looking at the Air Belgium ACMI flights news, and in view of the numerous SN flights operated by EW aircraft, I was wondering how busy their l/h fleet currently is. On FR24 data, I found the following: The 7 A332s are quite busy (Bangkok, Varadero; Cancun, Punta Cana..), although they do have each 1...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

It's only 12 return flights till end December, but these + the daily BA ones to DXB should make them survive through winter. And I assume they're looking for more.
Good luck!

Luchtzak means they got a subsidy to continue operating the loss-making route :)

This is allowed by EU as "Public Service Obligation".
What route are we talking about here and why is it subsidised?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

One can imagine Lufthansa is not too keen to see internal competition from them on the network side, hence them being oriented towards complementary markets only, quite clearly. Why? I don’t think LH cares wether you fly via MUC or FRA as long as you fly them! Stij You're right Stij, they shouldn't...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Correct, I also strongly doubt the point-to-point concept for Brussels Airlines that Eurowings wants to impose. The lack of news only confirms that management has doubts on the future way to go. Let's hope so. As someone wrote above, things and circumstances change. SN's new CEO, COO and CFO are pr...

Brussels Airlines in 2019

OK, let's take the risk and hope this topic will still be valid by December 31, 2019.

So, 2 additional flights per week on the Africa network next summer.

Given the fact that the fleet is not growing, which flights will be discontinued? Will Washington be re-started?
