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 ...

, rest time will not be less than the longer of the previous flight duty time or twelve hours. As such, it would never be feasible for the outbound crew to fly straight back with this schedule, even taking 'minimum rest' into account. The 12 hours is at home base, it becomes 10 hours away from base...

No BOB service on board, must be boring for cabin crew. (and also for pax)
Aviation is going through the biggest crisis in its existence, the majority of airlines are wobbling, crew are facing redundancies and huge salary cuts, do you really think anyone cares about BOB? :roll:

The cherry on top is the big Greek diaspora that lives here and they can go back to Greece fairly easily.
Only if they work here and are residents in Greece (or the opposite). No VFR nor tourism, all arrivals in BRU are terminal B and if you don’t have a valid reason you’ll be denied entrance.

Yes it is and that's why it is so confusing for airlines if they can or not, bcs Europe is completely not clear in this. Borders are still closed if you want to come with a car but more or less 14 airlines are still flying on BRU. So try to understand this mess which Europe is creating You can cros...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I'm quite surprised to read that cabin crew could get 2800 netto per month with mid-experience... Civil engineers get less than that when they start as juniors in large companies. Up to half of this are allowances, ie when away from Brussels crew get bed and breakfast paid by the company and an all...

Not exactly blacklisted, Cyprus will allow visitors from 19 countries. Belgium is not amongst these countries, that’s all, no need for further drama.

If SN remains in the LH Group, LH could accept the EU Commission's and transfer some flights operating from/to FRA/MUC to SN and OS :) (I'm already expecting someone to stay that this is too simplistic).

That's true that's why they should have a small part of the company a bit like with Brussels Airport.

About your argument about Lufthansa it's not applicable regarding the special circumstances.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Because in a plane there's a passenger list: if someone is infected, it's possible to trace who's at risk. Furthermore the risk is bigger as the period of contact was a couple of hours at least. In the airport, it's impossible to keep trace of who was there at the same time as the infected person. ...
