Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Giving up Eurowings is a threat to Lufthansa itself as well. If some other company takes over Eurowings, or Eurowings stops and someone else takes over the flights, it will be a stronger competitor to LH than Eurowings was. So even if EW isn't profitable as-is, it might keep LH profitable. Three glo...

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

Why would an airport care about the alliances and their placement? The only reason would be to accommodate transferring passengers and limit their connection time. But having the connecting passengers walk through your revenue-generating mall, and on the other hand keeping Shengen/non-Shengen split...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

People, let’s stop with this drama! Can anyone explain this guy that we are in Europe and here the planes are checked and if any aircraft is not fit for flying, it doesn’t fly! For such a short hop and for a total stay on board of perhaps one hour, a turboprop is more than acceptable. A member said...

One of the 2 new routes might be Los Angeles, operated by Brussels Airlines (only rumor).
I thought I remembered reading (here?) BRU-LAX was too far for SN, but on the other hand, I can see A330 flights from LAX to AMS, MAD,... So it should be possible?

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

KLM already offers Thalys-tickets from Antwerp (ZWE) to AMS. As it's more KLM supporting this than AirFrance, I don't think ANR-CDG will be a thing very soon (and ANR-AMS neither). I thought they were one company.. Air France KLM is the holding group, with Air France and KLM as subsidiaries. Beneat...

Re: Eurowings in 2019

I don't think LH/CS minds having SN in its portfolio. As long as they're profitable, and that's what we hear most now: make money. With SN being part of the LH group, LH has control over routes flown, and a big impact on BRU, so that's a good way to prevent another player becoming a threat to LH.

Re: Eurowings in 2019

I guess CS will keep in Eurowings whatever is profitable for them. If they have enough passengers to make DUS-EWR/JFK profitable, that route will stay. And if it's with cheaper SN-crew (cheaper than LH-crew), it's even more profitable. And you can't blame him: why ditch those customers and leave the...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Antwerp is so great, its citizens don't have that much of a need to fly abroad. That's why Antwerp-based airlines are having such hard times. If you live on the parking, off course you want to fly away as far as possible :lol:
