Air Canada
Montreal – Brussels 28MAR20 – 30APR20 A330-300 replaces 787-8
Which means a capacity increase by +-30 seats on average, very nice!

When can we expect a new Belgian icon? I thought one was foreseen this year as well?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I work in a company where exactly the same happens, everything for the Shareholders and the top managers-bonus.
Short term decisions,poor knowledge of the market, low repect for the customers... Quick bucks.
NOT Future-oriented. Will see what happens.
Off-topic but this looks soooooo familiar :lol:

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2020

I guess a rather logical move since the end of Thomas Cook:
- SN with free capacity
- TUI Belgium with too few planes/seats since they were leasing almost daily at SmartLynx, FreeBird, ...

My 2 cents...

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

BRU really seems the missing city pair (AMS, LHR, CDG, FRA, ...) - a pitty, let's hope the route gets started anytime soon!
Doesn't DUB offer the possibility to do the American Border checks before departure? So arriving at SFO as domestic?
That's correct.

Re: Looking back to 2019: one year of flights

Very nice summary, it seems 2019 was a very good aviation year for you André! Worst flight : MRS-CRL on a Ryanair B738. More than 3 hr delay on departure, when the pilot pushed the engines to the maximum and arrived 2 hr 45 min late at destination, saving the airline 180 x 250 = 45,000 euros in EU26...

For sure an escalation on this is ne...

Congratulations to Brussels Airlines! Today Brussels Airlines is part of Star Alliance for ten years!
Without attacking SN as an airline at all, I'm not sure if we have to applaud or cry for that Star Alliance part :roll:

Just out of curiosity: did you choose BRU-FCO-AUH-BKK (2 stop) because of the cheaper fare?

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

I guess anything is possible, if you put the right amount of money on the table. Sometimes, it just makes sense to have a third party do some modifications. EIN may have some special wishes in terms of integration or whatnot which could make the modification hideously expensive if done by Airbus, b...

Well it's a real "old skool" experience if you ask me. I'm curious to see how they can maintain offering this high standard compared to other legacy carriers.

Competition has never been so high one some of these routes... My bet: sadly enough, within the year another carrier will step out of some of these destinations...

CGN-IST-CGN with Turkish (321 & 738)

For the 3th away game in the UEFA Champions League, 2 friends and myself went out to Istanbul to see Galatasary-Club Brugge. Great atmosphere in the Galatasary stadium and delirium in the 92nd minute with Diatta's goal. We are Bruges! Initially we didn't intend to watch the game because of high tick...
