Mark March 1st 2021 on your calendar. If LH isn't begging for more money by then, I'll eat my hat.
For the love of God, someone, SCREENCAP THIS
Seen today’s results chances of Flanker eating their hat are pretty slim.

I wasn't referring to the mask you wear, that's entirely your choice.

The way you address other people is more of an issue.
Other people not wearing a mask or airlines ignoring the Covid rules are an even bigger issue.

Re: Impact of aviation on the Coronavirus crisis

"Aviation expert" Luc De Wilde says that it's perfectly safe because "there is no evidence" of on on-board infections. So apparently lack of evidence overrules sound judgement. What a fool. Luk De Wilde did not say "it is perfectly safe": he said "it is perfectly justified / defendable that passeng...

Airlines should avoid such incidents to avoid a full flight ban.
Absolutely correct, last week I flew with Brussels Airlines: no APU during boarding and packs off so no air conditioning for take off. :roll:
It looks like airlines don’t care about their passengers health.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

At present capital markets are locked for airlines, so public funds are the only funds available to them; if the corona pandemic gets wiped out, that will not be the case in 2 or 3 years. The capital markets have been locked for SN for many years, did you forget how Luftie had to provide a 100 mill...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

SN never realy got a fair chance fighting for its reason to excist.

However, there is also talks to get loans with state support, all these loans will have to be repaid in due time. In order to pay back the loans, it is crucial that the company still exists in a few years and that it is profitable, hence the important of the restructuring plan. For almost 20 years ...

Re: BRU Winter 2020-2021: news, new routes, airlines

Sorry to burst your bubble and your convenient calculations, but the block time of BRU-MRU is 11h50 and check-in times for a long haul flight are traditionally at least 60 minutes. That makes a rest time of at least 12h50 which start 30 minutes after arrival and would make it impossible to operate ...

, rest time will not be less than the longer of the previous flight duty time or twelve hours. As such, it would never be feasible for the outbound crew to fly straight back with this schedule, even taking 'minimum rest' into account.

No BOB service on board, must be boring for cabin crew. (and also for pax)
Aviation is going through the biggest crisis in its existence, the majority of airlines are wobbling, crew are facing redundancies and huge salary cuts, do you really think anyone cares about BOB? :roll:
