Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I only said that it's weird that the bankruptcy from just one Belgian airline is discussed in this forum: Brussels Airlines. Whilst actually, two other Belgian carriers are at risk too, with some of their staff predicting how Brussels Airlines' bankruptcy will fold. Not weird at all IF you read the...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

...some people who now predict how the bankruptcy of Brussels Airlines will be settled, are at job risk themselves. And? :roll: Indeed, unless you’re a healthcare worker, unfortunately, anyone’s job is at risk for the moment. Some on here still seem to think it will be business as usual when we wak...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I wouldn't be surprised to see SN and OS being up for sale in the not so distant future. The entire aviation world will change heavily and it remains to be seen how the Belgian government will react. Logically, given the importance of SN to the second biggest economic pool in Belgium, they would do...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Quite a few EU and Russian charter carriers still flying to holiday spots in Thailand and Vietnam, weird. That will be to bring people back, entry in Thailand is almost impossible for tourists at the moment, you need a medical certificate which states you are virus free and a private health insuran...

Should we not better state in reverse: Impact of Aviation on Corona ??
Indeed, three weeks ago I was shot down in fire on this forum for pointing out that Brussels Airlines was putting passengers in aircraft without fresh air despite EASA recommendations.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Flying cargo on the main deck on passenger aircraft is out of question now, too much work & long lead time to make this work. Flying cargo only, without passengers, is something that may be considered though... Fire detection and fire fighting would be a huge problem when transporting cargo on the ...

Re: [Coronavirus] State aid for (European) airlines ?

in the meantime people and businesses should prepare for immediately after Covid-19, with Belgium and with Brussels Airlines. You seem to think that Covid 19 will disappear overnight and that it will be business as usual the next morning, I think it won’t. In Belgium alone, one million people are u...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Can you imagine the rush on plane tickets once this corona crisis is officially over and done with ? I don’t think so, many people are unemployed, many businesses will go bankrupt or be short on cash at best, businessmen will have months to get used to other means of communication. It will take a y...

It's a bit like the banks in Island in 2008. Indeed, but this time it will be the whole economy, not one sector. There simply is not enough money and no economical reason to bailout everyone either, there was a massive overcapacity in the market, demand will be significantly less when we come out o...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The relative low liquidity % of LHG has much to do with the fact that they have, compared to the other traditional majors, by far the biggest share of the fleet owned - a strategy that draws away a lot of cash (and that's why many now say LH could raise more cash by doing sale-and-leasebacks on the...

[Coronavirus] State aid for (European) airlines ?

Another consequence: Brussels Airlines requests 200 million euros from the Government to avoid bankruptcy. As Lufthansa in Germany, Swiss in Switzerland and Austrian in Austria... That confirms the data that LH group is the weakest of the majors, who in turn are way behind Ryan and W!ZZ. The Belgia...

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Not sure if the EU will buy into this.
Both Willie Walsh (IAG) and Johan Lundgren (U2) said the EU should not allow bailout but should provide temporary credit lines.
