Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Many airlines have kept BRU flights also due to the EU commission, parliament etc. Same for Aegean. They stopped all international flights but BRU.

Re: [Coronavirus] State aid for (European) airlines ?

Finnair to receive 600M loan from government. https://simpleflying.com/finnair-600m-loan/

maybe it would be good to keep track of all these amounts / airline / state?

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

A little off-topic, I have a small question: Why Brussels Airlines and Air New Zealand do not work together between BRU and Heathrow (codeshare)? If you would booking a flight between BRU and LAX (for example) with Air New Zealand, you need a connection in LHR Terminal 2 (Star Alliance). But the BR...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SN's lounge is not filled with AV geeks only ;). Passengers using future EW feeder flights to/from BRU may appreciate the lounge, just as business travellers will appreciate the priority checkin/security/boarding. It may be a factor, so with jerry I am curious what direction they will be moving in....

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

@SkyTourist: the problem is that EW is not a *A member and as such you do not get the additional benefits, such as lounge access and priority boarding. It’s true that you might be able to get miles with some agreements with AC, UA, NH but *A is way bigger than that. But as I said before, perhaps it ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I am a *A gold and the only reason I fly SN (staying in the area, not BXL directly) is because of those benefits. Also, have to say that SN is the only airline that has thanked me for my business with them (not even my "parent" *A gold airline has done it). If they completely transform to EW model (...

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2019

It seems so. I guess spotting-wise this is going to be an interesting summer but passenger-wise not so much. The availability of 320/737 should be so scarce that airlines were not able to recover from the MAX disaster. If I find time I will try to do a mapping of how airlines handled that (wetleasin...

737MAX rings a bell?
Well I thought that they somehow resolved this by getting all the white planes from Smartlynx etc.

Re: Ryanair in 2018

Yes, but keep in mind that as they say in the ridiculous FAQ, there is a cap for 95 priority passes. So there is a chance that you might be "forced" to buy a checked bag if you don't do it early. So they found a way to officially charge for the carry-on luggage and they are trying to "brand" it diff...

Re: The CityJet Sukhoi SSJ100-95 saga is hurting Brussels Airlines

I find the SSJ way more comfortable than the airbuses (comeon, seat-pitch 32 compared to the 30 of airbuses?). Moreover, the 2-3 configuration is way better than the 3-3. I had 3 flights so far, all with no problem (but I acknowledge that I was among the lucky ones)
