Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Is it possible to get an AOC purely based on wet-leasing? There's not much "O" in AOC then. I cannot see the point. The O stands for "operations", not for "ownership" An air operator's certificate (AOC) is the approval granted by a national aviation authority (NAA) to an aircraft operator to allow ...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

"Kinshasa" is not something that happened out of the blue. It was discussed during their last AGM – clear proof is the statement from shareholder Sogepa to L’Echo. Is the Board (Sogepa) allowed to reveal such scoop, or is it a privilege for Management? That’s not relevant. What matters, is that suc...

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

After reading the (very interesting) "full story", I have the strong impression that the fascinating Alitalia saga is far from over!
This thread goes back to 2012 and it was already then an old Dallas-like story!

Brussels Airlines is still considered as part of the Eurowings Group and thus not allowed to publish its own tr...

Re: Estonian Air bankrupt - Replaced by Nordica

BRU summer topic : As from 1st of July, flights of Nordica from TLL are now operated by LOT and no more by Nordica. Flight numbers are the same. That would be interesting to see LOT aircraft (except CR7&9) at TLL. LOT took over Nordica routes, as mentionned above a few weeks ago. I knew that, I pos...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Remember Korongo? They'd be clean daft to point even one finger at Lubumbashi. That name is burnt, and will be for some time. It would be nice enough, though, I must agree. Probably a matter of traffic rights as André says. However, times have changed and Belgium should try and get these rights now...

OO-SFL is on her "once-in-a-month" charity flight, same as on 03JUN.

She left EBBR this morning as BEL9903 to position for the EW1112 DUS-EWR with STD 11:35LT.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

So it would be a good idea to stop with some leisure flights and to focus more on real business destinations which will bring also the money. With flights to Cabo Verde they don't earn a lot I think Although I agree with the rest of your post, I believe the leisure flights, mostly done on weekends,...

It remains to be seen what is going to happen with SFJ-K-L-P (A330 operating from DUS), that is something that will be looked at this quarter. What's already known: (1) they will stay on the SN AOC, (2) the tickets will be commercialised by LH, but the aircraft won't be painted in Lufthansa c/s. Eu...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2019

So it's bad management. Or maybe BAC shouldn't be so cheap. Many years ago, I worked for a subcontractor and every 5 or so years the contract had to be renewed. Each time BAC asked more for less money. As allways: when a company makes a profit, it's thanks to the employees. When they make a loss, i...
