Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

No more saving measures? What do these pilots expect, to somehow work for an airline that can sustain losses in perpetuity? :? What do these airline companies expect? Pilots are already working more for less (gross salary, before someone starts moaning about taxes) than in neighbouring countries or...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Next Monday an extraordinary meeting at Brussels Airlines' works council is being held as "additional measures are needed in the context of the financial turnaround". Background: Eurowings made a loss of €257M in 1Q 2019 I chatted yesterday with one of the top representatives of the SN pilots deleg...

World Airline Awards: SN deteriorating

The World Airline Awards 2019 are presented. LH-group results: LH: 9 LX: 13 OS: 15 EW: 63 SN: 79 (down from 74) https://www.worldairlineawards.com/worlds-top-100-airlines-2019/ How is it possible that SN ranks so low and even below EW when LH is known to pay Skytrax for ‘consultancy services’? Is LH...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Deurne ?

Also, this newspaper has a rather poor reputation, as I understand from a couple of Dutch forums that I frequent. De Telegraaf is the largest newspaper in the Netherlands: it has a daily circulation of 370.000 newspapers and 5,3 mio unique online visitors each month. You can't realize that with a r...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Whatever the name or the livery projects, SN/EW is still the home carrier employing locals here and abroad, and transporting passengers to and via BRU. So personnally, no reason to avoid SN. This applies to every airline at BRU. You can't fly from BRU without employing locals and indeed every airli...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

It's my opinion but Brussels Airlines and Eurowings are the same business model : low-cost products for the european network and "classic" (economy class and real business class) product for the long haul product. However it's sad to watch "belgian touch" goeing out on Brussels Airlines but it's lo...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

The latest strike was because of one drop too much in an already full bucket. That's wrong if the 'drop' itself wasn't a valid reason to strike. Striking as atco because you can't all be informed of something in one meeting isn't a valid reason. It's behavior of spoiled and entitled employees you w...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

I’m quite baffled by this AB saga. Normally you have an airline with a plan that buys airplanes. Here there is an airline that first decides to buy airplanes believing that a profitable plan will follow. :? They don’t even seem to know what part of the world they want to fly to. Have to give them cr...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

It seems like not all atco’s are a problem, but mainly the Christian ones have a poor and selfish mentality. So much for looking not only after yourself as Christian value. :roll: It’s ACV that callled for the wildcat strike today, while the socialists already agreed on a deal. Maybe banning religi...

Time to merge this topic with Eurowings in 2019, no?!
:D That would make sense. Or even better, have two EuroWings topics: one for EuroWings in Belgium and one for their operations abroad.

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

A meeting for CANAC atco's had been planned for 10h today. The initial email called of the COO for everyone to be there so they could explain the 'agreement'. However, 10h is a busy time to work, so a lot of people wouldn't be able to attend anyway. And even for those in break, attending isn't obvi...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

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 Christina Foerster on behalf of Brussels Airlines nv/sa and Peter De Wilde on beha...

Indirectly, through EuroWings.
