Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I think SN has to reboot before they become independent from EW. Makes sense to have an alternative plan before changing the current setup as an independent SN without reboot isn't viable.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance, Oneworld and Skyteam under one roof?

Also LATAM is high on the list DL has taken a big share in LATAM and it will be leaving OneWorld. https://www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl/nieuws/categorie/2/airlines/delta-sluit-miljardendeal-met-zuid-amerikaans-latam Sadly I think that will ruin the prospects of seeing LATAM at BRU, more service at CDG or...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

In various news reports it's written that Thomas Cook didn't pay it's bills from SN in weeks. This must be millions and counting. Does SN have enough liquidity to cover this for some time?

Re: Thomas Cook ceases trading; UK CAA launches giant programme to fly its customers home

I remember how certain people were repeating how profitable those new leisure routes for SN were. And this without any knowledge and background We can see now how it will bring SN further into deep troubles. They can modify already their reboot plan Who could have predicted 2 years ago that TC woul...

Re: Thomas Cook ceases trading; UK CAA launches giant programme to fly its customers home

Understandable decision from Brussels Airlines, but terrible news for Thomas Cook Belgium nv/sa. Unless they find another carrier within the next hours, they are legally forced to announce financial insolvency to their insurer Garantiefonds Reizen / Fonds de Garantie de Voyages. The GFR/FGV will th...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

What "near bankruptcy"? Because a few Belgian news sites copy an article in De Telegraaf today, with outdated information? Didn't you always reject what the MSM write? Sure - Thomas Cook is going through stormy waters, with a high debt following them. Chinese group Fosun (already owner Club Med) ha...

Re: KLM to replace one of their five daily flights to BRU by a train connection between Brussels (railway stations) to A

That is really a missed opportunity for the future. There are still a lot of people on long haul or even short haul who are taking a connection flight to AMS. They now have to take a train first to a Brussels train station and from there to AMS. They will lose more pax with it. They should link dir...

But unbelievable that they can go to double daily on AMS while other airlines cannot. They all the time increase more at AMS like previously. From AMS there is even more competition It's surprising indeed. After LHR and JV hubs AMS is their biggest intercontinental destination while AA is quite sma...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If SN wants to grow and become a network airline, you would imagine they would work on and develop further their existing destinations. First they need smaller planes (Embraer/A220). The A319 is too big to fly multiple daily to destinations as Bristol. That's why Bristol, Hannover, Billund, Nantes,...

Passengers from the EU, VS and Canada don’t need to go ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance, Oneworld and Skyteam under one roof?

An airport HAS to care of the airlines and the alliances. Those are their clients. To give you one example: at LHR you also have the alliances under one roof and this to make the journey of the pax more easier and the connecting time shorter. This makes LHR also more attractive even it is the busie...
