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...

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

Do we really need all of this, knowing it knocks away the critical mass to support big and healty home based airlines with route networks beyond just the obvious routes to Malaga, Barcelona, Rome etc? Healthy home based airline? Did you miss reboot? As for Transavia, I wouldn’t underestimate them, ...

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2019

Strange that TUI flies to Miami only in Summer. Miami is rather a winter destination for Americans trying to escape the cold of the Northern cities of New York and Chicago!

There has never been any indication that the airline will go bust .... That’s why Saratoga stated his question was purely hypothetical... As for the slots: Sabena slots were sold to DAT (SNBA) for 1€ the day before the bankruptcy. Kapitein is probably best placed to answer the question, but as BRU ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SN will not fail to reboot. This morning, CEO Christina Foerster and CFO Dieter Vranckx both said that SN WILL reach an 8% EBIT margin in 2022, whatever it takes to get there. Saving 10% will be very very hard, if not impossible! If it would be that simple, why have they been throwing away all thes...

The situation at OS looks even worse than at SN (which is not expected to fire people, but rely only on natural departures to slim down)
Voluntary departures, which is quite different from natural departures.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

let's not forget that 'caring of shareholders' means 'caring for passengers' as well since it are passengers that bring in profits. If BAC wouldn't give a damn about passengers as you seem to be convinced of, it would negatively impact profits and thus the shareholders. Strange logic, Conti! Eg: Fo...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

It's not like they can favour SN anyway, home or principal carrier or not. It's against competition rules. That's easy to circumvent: offer a generous discount for more than 100 flights per day or 500 flights per week, for example. Every airline can benefit, but only one will. You have a short memo...

Re: Cruise speed vs top of descent

In fact it is the angle of descent and not the rate which is what you are after. Aircraft have an optimum glide speed, which depending upon weight, is around 200-220kts for a 737/320. The closer to that speed, the shallower the descent, so reducing the speed will bring the top of descent forward. Th...
