Is LH intentionally trying to drag SN down to justify integration in to EW

Re: Eurowings in 2019

Btw, it is interesting to note that SN has been allowed to rent several aircraft (from LH) in order to have this ACMI contract with EW for these DUS flights that don't seem too successful, but isn't allowed to add one single long-haul aircraft for its own operations. That one has been explained bef...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

don’t forget that the EW long haul by SN is a form of money transfer from one unit to another within the same company. If that transfer r stops the results in Brussels will be worse. Do you have evidence of that? Are these DUS flights profitable? The profitability of the flights is not relevant! Ew...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

It is becoming urgent that the performance of SN, isolated from that of EW, be well identified. Kristina Foerster's role and duty as CEO is to defend her own airline within the LH group. To achieve what? Brussels Airlines is not doing well, the results are not as bad as the rest of Eurowings, but n...

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

May 2019 figures compared to May 2018: Pax: 928,500 (+5.1%) - Short-haul +4.8%, long-haul + 6.8% LF: 78.9% (-1.45%) That's way better than the Eurowings aggregated figures : -2.7% (-3.1% on short-haul, +3.2% on long-haul). Draw your own conclusions! Difficult to draw conclusions, a LF of 78.9 in Ma...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Poiu, can you please explain this : "The ones who travel to Turkey to fly four domnestic C sectors to obtain M&M Gold status".

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

I can only observe that, in his quest for making his pet-project EW successful, he seems ready to do anything, including to crush SN, but not only SN: he's even allowing EW to compete with flagship LH on important routes. That does look a bit messy, doesn't it? Are they competing or are the flights...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SN's lounge is not filled with AV geeks only ;). Passengers using future EW feeder flights to/from BRU may appreciate the lounge, just as business travellers will appreciate the priority checkin/security/boarding. It may be a factor, so with jerry I am curious what direction they will be moving in....

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

@SkyTourist: the problem is that EW is not a *A member and as such you do not get the additional benefits, such as lounge access and priority boarding. It’s true that you might be able to get miles with some agreements with AC, UA, NH but *A is way bigger than that. But as I said before, perhaps it...

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. Exactly! On top of that the general public, 99,9% of the passengers, doesn’t care. HLN put a, for once, nice...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The fact that Brussels Airlines will fly aircraft in EW colors doesn’t change their strategy! Brussels is a hub and will remain a hub, the color of the aircraft is a fanclub issue which is not taken into account by the beancounters who only see the lower operating cost due to reduced overhead cost a...

Re: Ryanair in 2019

Regarding this "agreement": it would be utterly stupid from Boeing to make such a deal, given the fact that so many other 737 MAX clients also have the same demands. Even more because there is no solution insight: both the FAA and EASA understand that Boeing has cheated on them with the 737 MAX. So...

The matter of aircraft noise, and the possible re-federalisation of the responsability, has not exactly been a hot issue in the campaign... So no, I do not think the upcoming elections will make much of a change, whatever the outcome.
Climate is a hot issue in the campaign though.

Re: Brussels region noise regulation

night flights are a reality, onions from New-Zealand are a reality as are cheap holiday flights. Simply banning them from BRU would make them move elsewhere. Loss of income for BRU and loss of jobs. Hence my remark we need a change of mentality, by keeping the onions from New Zealand, the noisy air...
