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

Asiana Airlines is currently financial crisis and has just started the sale process. Not only that, but the Korean economy is facing multiple issues. Japanese boycott (started with a Comfort Ladies ruling by a Korean court), DPRK always lurking around and recently some Chinese and Russian fighter j...

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

-we can welcome soon Asiana! I would be very happy if this would really come through. Soon I go to Seoul via CPH and PEK, not very ideal And got visitors incoming from Korea on QR via DOH A direct link, I think, would make sense, especially if there will be cooperation with SN in BRU. Recently I he...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If they want a presence in Africa, they can enhance their partnership with Ethiopian Airlines, for East and Central Africa. They is already a strong partnership between Lufthansa and Ethiopian Airlines. Some Ethiopian Airlines flights, in Africa are operated in code share with Lufhansa. They are up...

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: Estonian Air bankrupt - Replaced by Nordica

I just received an e-mail from LOT informing me the flight number changed.
So far, all Nordica flights already had a LOT flight number (LO8XXX)
Now it's LO2977/LO2978 iso LO8177/LO8178

So, I wonder what's the logic behind it? Or a particular reason?

Timing and aircraft stay the same

Re: Wizz Air in 2019

Rich Georgians going on their holidays? Well yes, there is a middle class. And, with the conflict with Russia getting worse again (sigh), the only place you can easily get to, as a Georgian, is Turkey and the European Union (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jun/22/putin-bans-russian-airlines-...

My point, exactly. No other mention of SN in the whole presentation.
The page of the presentation above is;
Longhaul of EW today (so BRU is in a different colour, as today SN is a separate part of EW)

and it litterally says it will be realigned and not integrated in EW

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

What if Eurowings for instance takes over the flights to and from HAM, TXL,... as Eurowings has a strong German base? What if Eurowings takes over the flights to Heraklion, Marsa Alam, or other ex-TC-destinations, as those are clearly point-to-point? SN can still codeshare on these flights, but it ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Finally some common sense. I think so too The construction of LongHaul Brussels inside Star Alliance and integrated in Eurowings was way too complex to be workable. And such a structure can't be lean and efficient. I think an efficient hybrid carrier in Brussels Airport can do well, plus it mixes t...

Re: Estonian Air bankrupt - Replaced by Nordica

At least, airBaltic and LOT can jump in and fill the voids. I guess we'll see more airBaltic indeed, they're not too bad LOT however pushes you each time through Warsaw, which is not that great. The service is rather bad. Usual alternative becomes Lufthansa, which via Frankfurt is even less appeali...

Re: Estonian Air bankrupt - Replaced by Nordica

Nordica is dead. LOT decided to close all Nordica routes as from July 1st. Only Tallinn-Brussels/Stockholm/Warsaw will remain, operated by LOT. As the same time, Nordica signed a contract where their planes will keep flying for LOT. This is a very sad, sad day A big loss for Tallinn https://www.err....

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Amazing stuff going on here: "SN has become EW". We call it "massahysterie". Just one proof of the contrary: the Bruegel aircraft (OO-SNE). That A320 can't go to the paint shop in Malta or Hamburg next week to get Eurowings colours. It's part of a five year commercial contract, signed between Chris...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Exactly! A little nuance, my job pays...that's true but I also pay some travel. In fact with EW we enter a category that I call "subcategory" with zero service when there is a problem I thought for a second I was the Nordic 'rich bitch' here. But nonetheless. Yes, that's how this works. EW, I am no...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

BRU-TLL is operated by LO/Nordica and not by SN so that doesn't change a lot for you on that route, If you're miles and more you still get miles etc on EW/SN flights for SK Gold no idea to be honest as Eurobonus has it's own benefits but it's logical they give more benefits to Miles&More and SN/EW'...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Of course ... think the future for Brussels will be clear .. European flights will go under the EW brand now... But then what's the point of having special liveries like Brueghel, and then have some boring EW livery at the same time? At least the Star Alliance livery makes sense. It really starts t...
