Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Some people here seem to see SN as a playground where they think they can manage their fleet like they could do in a simulation video game. Reality is much more complicated. A few element that pop up in my mind and that could bring some context/explanations: - lh fleet imobilization is not foreseeab...

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

Very pity about Cathay Pacific....knowing Air Belgium could not start the route because they where already flying it. At the end Brussels Airport will lose everything it's not so exiting at the end the new routes are more rumoured than real and Cathay is not doing well. Besides Asiana are even in a...

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.

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...
