Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

LUFTHANSA announces a re-orientation of Brussels Airlines: closer alignment with Network Airlines; integration into Eurowings will not be further pursued. The best news ever. :D Not to be the party-pooper that brings rain on this sunny day, but... What if "Brussels Airlines" will indeed remain for ...

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

Question :?: : When will the new EW/SN entity leave Star Alliance ? We all know Eurowings is totally separated from Star... I have heard in 2022 at the latest, but how will they proceed if the SN brands survive for the long-haul ? That must be a headache. :| :roll: I tend to say that North Atlantic...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The uniform's colour combination is quite painful to the eyes. Like with cheap looking Ryanair and Easyjet uniforms it tries to convince passengers that the airline they are flying is really lowcost with cuts on the cabin crew's uniforms as well. It has the looks of an Aeroflot uniform (although eve...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I have studied the document of the DOT. In my opinion, it only relates to eurowings operated by Sun Express flights. https://www.aviation24.be/organisations/u-s-department-of-transportation-dot/terminate-certain-wet-lease-arrangements-eu-carriers/ That is correct, for the moment. But Footnote 14 in...

Possible restrictions on Eurowings' wetlease flights to US (operated by Sun Express and Brussels Airlines) as of 30 March? The US Department of Transport is threatening to restrict the number of wetlease flights operated for EU carriers, in a similar way as US wetlease flights are restricted in the ...

Re: Lufthansa in 2018

The newly established connection Tegel-New York disappears. That was known since the beginning: LH took over the route after the Air Berlin bankruptcy only because Eurowings didn't have the necessary aircraft. At the end of 2018, Eurowings can take over again. The Areobuzz article suggests that the...

Re: Lufthansa in 2018

Lufthansa limits its long haul to Frankfurt and Munich from Winter 2018. The newly established connection Tegel-New York disappears. Long haul in Düsseldorf is operated by Eurowings/SN only, with 400 LH staff moving to FRA or MUC. Source: https://www.aerobuzz.de/luftverkehr/lufthansa-bedient-langstr...

Apparently the financial results are the spin given by "insiders" in the German press. The Süddeutsche Zeitung also refers to the change in strategy of EW: while originally seen as a point-to-point LCC, "in the meantime, it even offers long-haul flights from the Lufthansa hub in Munich and introduce...
