Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

FWIW, it has been numerously reported in the past that boardmembers take no remuneration whatsoever... :roll: That is completely new to me, do you have a reference? I know several members of different boards and not a single one is doing it for free, quite the opposite! SN26567 meanwhile provided y...

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

My understanding is they just pretended to be interested in flying from Brussels to Liverpool when asking for specific slots to BRU, while in reality they intended to serve Manchester with those slots once obtained... Why do they have to act so secretly about what UK route they really wanted to serv...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I've said so before: If BRU wants things to move differently, it needs to help shape reality for those who actually fly the passenger flows... this means focus less on the bottom line itself and more on the quality of its revenue sources, because I agree opening up Belgium to the US by evening flig...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Didn't this route start as an evening flight, only to be moved to the morning after one season?

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

Regarding Intercontinental flights. Yes, I fully agree, there are certain destinations who are missing, very badly missing. With a shrinking SN it will not help to convince them and this is a shame. 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, ...

Do we really need all of this, knowing it knocks away the critical mass to support big and healty home based airlines with route networks beyond just the obvious routes to Malaga, Barcelona, Rome etc?

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.

It's in everybody's interest! Indeed...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

But like we could read here like BRU has to invest more in SN is not possible bcs LH is the main share holder. 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...
