Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

My point was that, you have days with 6 long haul flights a day (saturday's) and plenty of connecting flight, and day with one single flight. There is just a problem with the use of the fleet. The demand is low (thank you sn26567 I didn't know :roll: ) but it doesn't mean that you can't split the p...

Re: 2020 Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL/EBCI) latest news

Irrelevant? The support given is also reflected in low(er) airport charges meaning that Wizzair, Laudamotion and the Ryanair flights with non-based aircraft also benefit from this support. Some of these flights operate to exactly the same destinations as similar flights from BRU. Your quote was abo...

In a thread of Brussels Airlines you can read the following: Relevance of Brussels Airlines for Brussels Airport: - If SN operates a route, that leads to 4 times more Belgian jobs then if a foreign airline would operate the same route. The federal government gives state aid to the Belgian airliners...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Can someone explain this ? "Ryanair cuts flight schedules by 20% in September and October as bookings drop due to restrictions" Is the aviation world still in total denial ? Passenger drop is >50% and they still create new routes and pretend schedule will only change by 20% ? Driving in t...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The flights resumed. For Kigali, I have just saw that the SN A330 makes a day stop at KGL.It is quite unusual, SN operates flights to Kigali in the evening (arrival around 7:00 p.m. and departure at 8:20 p.m.) The plane arrives at 12:50 a.m. and departs the same day at 9:10 p.m. The crews sleep log...

This should not come as a surprise, the unsustainable growth during recent years made SN very vulnerable.

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.

"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 ...

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

A refund with tax money is quite ironic seeing that we've all collectively paid for it :roll: Mr Decroo was quite clear in parliament: SN was in negative equity, in other words: virtually bankrupt. It’s the refusal to refund bookings which kept them alive till today and as such it’s only normal tha...

SN never realy got a fair chance fighting for its reason to excist. Now you might claim other airlines were hit by the same crises as SN (apart from the 2016 attacks) but overall most other airlines got the time and opportunity to grow or get stable at times when SN was struggling from Sabena's ban...

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 ...

As such, it would never be feasible for the outbound crew to fly straight back with this schedule, even taking 'minimum rest' into account.
