It is not yet decided.
It has been decided, but it’s not official yet.

A déjà vu of Christophe Muller replacing Paul Reutlimger at Sabena and introducing a draconian restructuration plan shortly afterwards.

Re: Eurowings in 2019

The restructuration of Eurowings in DUS, remember the original plan was a 40 aircraft hub and spoke base, shows that hub and spoke at secondary airports is not a walk in the park.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I would like to see the Eu261 bill, How is that going to change anything? Yes, I know how much it is, but if I tell you, I have to kill you. ;) It was a rhetorical question! Cutting a little bit in the programme and build in some resilience could see the bill decrease by more than the lost revenue ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

As far as I understood it, they are going through a typical business transformation in which they restructure the way in which they work, focus more on automation of their internal processes and the IT side of their business and thus become leaner and more efficient. And yes, they will go over all ...

Lets see how many idiots read this forum and how much mess they want to create this time.
It's almost double the length of MAA - LGG. So half as bad no? ;)
Double??
MAA (Chennai)-LGG is almost 8000km!

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

Your logic is flawed as well. Ticket prices are determined on supply and demand, it has almost nothing to do with the cost base. That's why some passengers pay €30 and some pay €300 for the exact same ticket. You can't say that the expensive one is subsidising the cheap one, both prices don't have ...

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

Yes, many pax will choose price over comfort. With or without incentives, airlines offer them lower prices to fill their long-haul flights. Reducing airport tax for connecting pax could be an acceptable measure, imho. I don't really care if the pax next to me is paying less ( it's been the case for...

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

Right, but also the fact that the hub and spoke model gives you a better chance to keep a higher market share at home. With the right price the home market share, if there is one at the first place, won’t be a problem. Today direct flights are more expensive than flying a detour to connect, this is...

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

From that article about Austrian's restructuring plan: The rising LCC competition attacks our feeding system and therefore indirectly also our long haul and hub-network . When analyzing Europe’s Top 40 airports, we see that the average LCC share in hub airports is about 20%, while it skyrockets bey...

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

Seems Austrian is basically saying: what's it going to be, VIE? Do you want a bunch of LCC serving Europe or do you want to be connected intercontinentally, because it's not sustainably possible to keep adding regional LCC routes (and pocket the extra revenu from them), while expecting us to keep s...

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

I drove twice to AMS this year to take the much cheaper HV direct flight AMS-BEY. If they start such a flight in BRU, I'll be delighted. ME is abusive in terms of prices and SN sadly isn't looking at BEY. HV serve AMS, ORY and LYS-BEY so it's not impossible. Exactly my point! Of course they will te...
