Re: Impact of aviation on the Coronavirus crisis

I love this kind of post because it shakes people awake. At the peak of the Coronavirus crisis, Belgium had 496 deaths per day. In comparison, in 2019, Belgium counted 646 accident deaths on its roads for the full year. To reach the same level of deaths by car accidents, we would have to remove all...

Re: Impact of aviation on the Coronavirus crisis

Completely shutting down air travel for passengers could maybe save some lives, at the expense of a heavy economical impact. On the other hand: smoking also kills a lot of people, but it's not forbidden. Neither is the use or selling of alcohol. Both products which aren't necessary (like air travel...

Re: Air Belgium in 2020

As there are Canadian shareholders in BAC, would that make BRU a Canadian airport?
Why so much focus on the nationality... The current pandemic shows we live in a world which cares less about borders and nations than ever before.

Re: Trip Report Copenhagen - Brussels with SN

Nice to read first experiences of post-Corona flights. Thanks to both of you. Load factors look decent. Wasn't SN planning to abandon the A319 and only use 320's in their fleet? In these distancing-times, it might be interesting as well to have a little more spacing of an A320, albeit with lover LF...

As long as LCY remains closed and doesn't announce a reopening (https://www.londoncityairport.com/coronavirus), there's no use in restarting the flights out of ANR.

Well just transfert 12+12 flights from Frankfurt and Munich to Brussels, Geneva, Zurich and Vienna to Brussels Airlines, Austrian and Swiss and that's it, no big deal. As someone already stated above, these airlines will probably not be seen as competetion as they are part of the Lufthansa Group. I...

On Google Earth (the app) this seems to be the image of 14/7/2018. On Google Earth (the web-versio) even the three departing planes are gone: https:...

Stupid Spohr came to ask 290 000 000 euros to our gouvernment, and he came with a private jet. Really This is one of the jets the training academy of Lufthansa is using, thus part of the hours flight by pilot trainees. By the way there are 5 of them in the fleet. How frustrated can you be ?

But coming back to facts: - it is known that Lufthansa is the driving force towards the 321XLR development - however, no plane is flying yet - and if Brussels should become some, it has to prove first that it can handle the cost of becoming them, as they would be brand new How is LH the driving for...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

When the night stop is done with an A319, as there are 2 pilot and 3 ccm on board, you need to book 10 rooms, 5 for the crew arriving late and 5 for the crew departing early, so 12 when it's operated on A320. So it's cheaper to operate an A319 over an A320. As OS is taking them out of their fleet, ...

Regarding to those two letters: Lufthansa has to defend their position, Belgium has to defend theirs. Simple as that.
