Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Better train connections are part of the solution. Not everybody lives near a train station where trains stop to go to BRU (even with just one stopover). However, better timetables and more frequencies can help. As to the price of the train ticket, I would suggest to the NMBS/SNCB to lower the fare...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

What a mess with SN's long haul fleet. A real demonstration of why it is not possible to fly on intercontinental flights when flying a lot! Terrific ! Today the winner is SN 278 LOME ACCRA that it's cancelled ! The new management has a Titan job to regularize all this! I'm really sad for SN and I b...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2017

I might be wrong but SN already has soms planes that stay overnight at other airports.

SN 501 to JFK cancelled today...one more time ! Why are they planning to fly so technically the planes are not ready to fly ?

Re: Abnormalities in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2017

Why so late? They've had 4 hours to prepare the replacement aircraft! Good that SFM is safely back though. The potential replacement aircraft landed this morning at BRU. It is likely under maintenance at the moment. The replacement aircraft could be SFM itself then. OO-SFU took off a few minutes ag...

This CPH - BRU flight is almost more a positioning than a commercial flight regarding its poor LF. If many morning flights bac...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2017

OO-SSE is now operating BRU-NTE-BRU (SN3563/SN3564). Tech reason or extra demand on this route today? Another A319 is scheduled on 12 Feb. I guess this is due to traffic forecasts. This type of replacements is not unusual. On 31 Jan, an SN Avro RJ100 operated the flight. Thanks for the information....
