Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

About THE plan...When the "Reboot" plan of SN will be communicated and will take course. 2019 ? 2020 ? Later ? Thx ... I could be wrong of course, but I am under the impression many here wrongfully expect some kind of a big, abrupt and revolutionary plan in which they will announce that as from a s...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

No LCC competition will make intra European travel more expensive and will increase the profit of feeder airlines, there is no benefit for travellers nor for airports. If Austrian halts their NRT service, locals who need to fly from Vienna to Tokyo will fly via Fra, LHR, Cdg,.. but they will still ...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

You can safe money on many ways but not in making yourself smaller bcs you lose market which others ...

Transavia to fly from BRU with 2 Boeing 737s in Summer 2020

[I share the same opinion as Inquirer. That market is already overcrowded. Destinations have not been announced yet, but one can only think they'll start with the most popular ones Indeed 737MAX, let's see what routes they announce. I really do hope they go for the less obvious routes like Zurich, ...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

Rumors are 3 planes based in BRU, apparently. That seems not bad! If they fly the holiday destinations for exemple four times a week, they can launch a high number of routes! Also remember when they wanted to start flights to Munich a few years ago. The flights never launched, or were stopped very ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Off topic but most of the people also forget that the shareholder of BRU also invested already more then 1 billion euro in BRU. And the investments for the future are already approved. I didn't forget, but the fact remains BRU is solely investing in itself really: it's investing in hard infrastruct...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

This discussion has nothing to do with SN’s fleet. Stay on topic please Sorry to have deviated from the topic, but the discussions are related: SN will be able to renew its fleet only if it can show a healthy profit, and BRU can and should help SN make a profit. It's in everybody's interest! Indeed...

It's a bit easy to say investment must come from the shareholder; in today's world, we speek about 'stakeholders' and this includes ALL beneficiaries, also those who do not OWN the company...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

To shrink the fleet and number of destinations will make it more attractive for the competition. SN will lose market share. It will be much more difficult to come back and win pax for your airline. Regular airlines and LCC will fill the gap. This process will cost SN much more. Aviation is the mirr...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

yet the logo is displayed next to the entry door of each plane.

But I agree: it would be smarter to have a plane in STAR colours actually flying, ideally one of their big ones even, because on the intercontinental routes, they are a far more valuable asset to STAR then on regional routes in Europe.

Re: Thomas Cook ceases trading; UK CAA launches giant programme to fly its customers home

What makes those flights repat flights? They're normal planned flights which are confirmed? I'd say the only difference is who's paying for the flight? 70000 holidays have been cancelled, so expect at least another 500 flights to be cancelled. Probably, but I find the number of flights actually can...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

BRU is an open airport. No carrier is excluded. If you do so, legal complaint will be against you. I understand, but it seems BRU does more than just refuse to refuse a certain type of customer. Competition is good as it give more freedom to pax to chose. From a regional customer perspective, on th...
