Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

"Turn around" means changing direction. From low cost EW strategy towards a network carrier. At least, that's what I understand :) Turnaround stands indeed for backing out or retreating from the decision wrongly made earlier but also for transforming from a loss making company to a profit making co...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SN is expected to present a business plan by the end of August. August already? :) Let's hope it's an ambitious plan...! SN has so much (unused) potential. Christina Foerster called it a “turn around plan”, that doesn’t sound very ambitious. It sounds more like save and cut to me, but then again, m...

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

A stall is considered a particularly dangerous phenomenon in aviation. If the airflow is missing under the wings, aircraft crash. Only courageous manoeuvers can prevent worse. Off topic, but as this is an aviation forum.... An aircraft will stall (not necessarily crash) when the airflow OVER the wi...

Re: Flight planning question!!

Don’t make it too complicated guys! The OP, clearly, was on a flight inbound to an airport with a curfew and diverted because the were too late. When running late pilots will try everything to save time and land before the curfew, some airports are very strict and won’t even allow 1 minute extra. Lo...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance and Oneworld under one roof?

It is correct that BRU is attracting a lot more pax from The Netherlands then from France. This also bcs of the many campaigns in The Netherlands.

Re: BRU Winter 2019-2020: news, new routes, airlines

What kind of equipment does EgyptAir use between Cairo and Kigali? I suspect it's a narrow-body, and as such it should not be serious competition for Brussels Airlines, except if they sell tickets at rock-bottom prices. People take FLIXBUS from Brussels to CDG and then fly CDG-BRU-KGL because the t...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

An interesting thought by Luk De Wilde on Twitter: Selling Eurowings to Ryanair, which has yet to set foot in Germany ? I think Luk has been in the sun far too long! LH selling to Mol? Over their dead body! On the other hand I wouldn’t be surprised at all by a close cooperation between Eurowings an...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

First newer airplanes who are more fuel efficient. It is not makes sence for trying to be profitable when you are flying with old birds. New destinations can be later but then first into Africa to take some % back from AF/KLM - Turkish Airlines, etc. New destinations in The States as feeder to Afri...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If LH/CS/CF say that SN still has many efforts to make, it would make sense that some of the efforts be made not only by SN (employees ?), but that LH as owner of SN takes part in theses efforts (young fleet, sorry for the broken record, Poiu ;) ) Well, I have been beating the wrong (EW) drum quite...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

The fact that it has a Eurowings livery means that Eurowings is involved, "volens nolens". So if this would have been Rackham 330, you would have blamed Tintin? :roll: Come on, Poiu, that's bad faith. Tintin is not an airline, Eurowings is one: its name appears on the fuselage and people could wond...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

SN always struggled through life by growing and investing with the little money it was earning by itself, small steps, one by one. Not at a single moment it was helped by a rich or willing shareholder (except in 2001/2002 to avoid a complete vacuüm on the Belgian air transport market) Your memory i...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The airline company expects that profitability is needed to be sustainable. This has very little to do with LH because profitability has always been an issue, already at the old SN. If anything the pilots are better of with LH because they still have a job. A camel’s back can also be broken by cont...

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...
