Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Deurne ?

I was also wondering why they don't use ATR or CityJet or KLM aircraft, from Embraer 175 to CRJ-900... Well... E175 and CRJ-900 have more seats, so that could be one reason to go for F50 as filling 50 seats (and covering fuel costs) would already be quite an achievement. the leasing back of an Amap...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Deurne ?

Could one of the two other destinations be Amsterdam (AMS)? As KLM is one of the two shareholders, they could codeshare on a possible morning and evening return flight ANR-AMS-ANR. Just guessing... Not sure if you're joking in that part already :P In the current erm... climate ( 8-) ) this would br...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

Flights for which a reasonable (eg less than 3 hours) train alternative is available should be heavily taxed. 3 hours by train + arriving at least 2 hours before departure at the airport + arriving well on-time at the station + only one train per hour? Per 2 hours? So maybe starting the train-journ...

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

I agree really short flights are ridiculous and should be replaced by alternative means of transport, but I disagree with the often quoted range of what is a short flight in this respect. When you see the green party for instance table ranges up to 1,000 km as the minimum range to fly over, they cl...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The fact that EW isn't making any profit might be irrelevant: if they need to make (some) loss to keep the other LCC's away, it might be worth it. If EW should raise their prices to become profitable, they leave a bigger part of the market for for instance Ryanair to fill in. And more and more peopl...

That contingency procedure requires the approval from Canac (for flights to be allowed to transit from Charleroi (or Liège) to France (or Germany). If they strike in Canac, the FIR is closed and they will not approve the use of that procedure. That would mean they are killing part of their strike b...

Eco/Climate/CO2-compensation experiences?

I'm not really sure this is the right sub-topic, hopefully it's the right forum anyway. As there's more and more fuzz about climate, I was looking at the climate-cost of our trip to Japan. Although I'm an aviation-enthousiast, I don't mind the idea to pay or compensate for the impact on climate I'm ...
