Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

How many people are getting fired? :? The law Renault is applicable as soon as 30 people are made redundant (not fired) in any 60 day period. As for the total, that is still inside knowledge for the moment, but if you want to reduce costs by 10% or more it could be a significant number. Let's see w...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

What they're basically saying is that not hiring new staff equals collective layoffs, it's preposterous! They made themselves irrelevant with such an extremist stance Not correct, what they are actually saying is: deciding to lay off 50 people, every month during 20 consecutive months should be con...

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

Slots at BRU could be refused for Summer 2020, since 25R will be closed during July & August, resulting in a significant loss of capacity for the airport. As a preventative measure, some slots might be refused. I couldn’t tell you whether that’s actually the case here or not. Even then, BRU had 100...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Is SN going to get the A321LR ? Not so long ago, I asked the question to Christina Foerster. She answered, "I would like to buy it, but I don't have the money." Case closed! Spohr has said 'EBIT must come before new planes' earlier so no surprise here. But the A321XLR would be a perfect plane for S...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

I still believe the problem of BRU lies with the shareholders. Dividend that BRU is keeping for them is extremely high. ( about 5 times what AMS is paying ). My information says BRU payed 93 million, CDG 173 million and AMS 117 million over 2018. AMS and CDG are multiple times larger thus BRU’s div...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

Regardless of how you think BRU is doing you can't blame a single person or entity. Everyone needs to work together to have a big hub in a small country and the needed vision simply isn't there. Compare not only the airport ownership with AMS but what recently happened after AFKL tried to fire the K...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Of course it's just a little detail that BRU is one of the largest international transfer hubs in the full Star Alliance network based on hard facts rather than a personal grudge against LH :roll: One of the largest after FRA, IST, MUC, ZRH, VIE, CPH, LIS, ADD, PTY, BKK and SIN you mean? :?

OK, a positive article for once.

Wondering where BRU will end up in terms of Total PAX for 2019.

Hopefully they still make it to the TOP 20 ??
Top 20 of Europe you mean? Unlikely with a growth of 2.6% when they were 24th busiest in 2018. MXP will likely surpass them while BRU will surpass ARN so same position in 2019.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

.. Small correction: I was wrong about BRU being more expensive than CDG. This graph shows the costs per passenger. Thus BRU isn't that expensive but not exactly cheap either as the article suggests. It's notable that BRU differentiates very little based on O&D or transfer traffic, and the latter i...

According with flightlevel, United's flight BRU-ORD will be operate by a 787-10 from april 2020. Opening BRU-SFO by United is next step ? Brussels will be a UA "european mini-hub" for 787 ? For UA, BRU is a real hub, not a mini-hub as something like this is not existing. By next year an other new f...

OO-SFU operating SN371 to DLA diverted to Kano. Landing there at 16:50Z, first take off attempt 4 hours later followed by a return to the apron. Another hour later she took off for Douala. 4 hours grounded + another 1h after a dry run on the runway may point towards a technical issue rather than me...

Hopefully the return of SQ to Brussels does not hurt TG too much. As I travel alot between Vietnam and Belgium, the return of SQ is a nice alternative to Thai and Cathay but I am not sure if three airlines serving the same area (TG, CX and SQ) is sustainable in the long run. I wouldn’t be scared of...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Knack has it right: Despite its shamefully high unemployment rates, the Brussels Region prefers (night) rest for its population over an expanding Zaventem. Charleroi cannot follow intercontinental for the time being. Few transfer passengers opt for an airport that does not offer European connections...
