Re: Lufthansa in 2019

United Airlines (my own FF) is doing the same... status linked to USD spent and no more on flown miles.

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

And prices look cheaper that Air Caraibes that I am usually using to fly in the French West Indies (see my travel report in the relevant section)

LUFTHANSA announces a re-orientation of Brussels Airlines: closer alignment with Network Airlines; integration into Eurowings will not be further pursued.

The best news ever. :D
This is also my reading as a frequent SN traveller and as a friend of pilots/stewards

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

A) => airport, EBLG = Liège
B) are the date and time, 2019 April 15th, then time in UTC (add 2 hours for local time)
D) unsure but probably a subset of B)
E) explanation (see above) + no 'air traffic control' == no crossing, no landing, no take-off except on emergency

Which aircraft did you fly? A350? If so, glad you didn't fly their cramped economy (10-across).
A330 and in Caraibe class, this was really OK. On the way back, we upgraded ourself to 'Madras' their lie-flat business class for even more comfort ;-)

Re: SN really turned German :(

Air Caraïbes: Orly - Martinique

About 1 month ago, my wife and I flew from Orly (a nightmare to join from Liège...) on Air Caraïbe in Premium Economy (Caraibe class) to Martinique. Smooth check-in, 'One' fastlane (mostly useless at the point in time), comfortable seats (width and some recline) but when the passenger in front recli...

SN really turned German :(

Of course, we all know that SN is now Eurowings and German... But what a 'shock' :o today, after a nice flight PRG-BRU, got the usual request to fill in an evaluation form for this flight, so, doing it... BUT, the evaluation scale is SO German: with the best score on the left and the worse on the ri...

Re: 2019 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

No more Chinese tourists, the number of passengers reduced from 300,000 to 170,000: the duty-free shop of Liege Airport, operated by the Polish duty-free specialist Baltona, closes its doors. TUI fly still operates from Liege Airport, but the number of passengers makes it unsustainable and unprofit...

Re: Air traffic control service skeyes to strike in the evening and night of 12 March

Unfortunately, they didn't follow my nice advice. Instead, they are targetting LGG, the main freight airport of the country, at the hours when it is most active. Well done, guys. Thanks for our economy! Actually, if EBLG wants to get cargo during the night, then they should have their own ATC and n...

This page is replaced by the next one within 2 seconds :?

SN and its air fare classes (Y, K, L, ...)

Unsure whether it is the right place to ask... but flyertalk has not the answer :-( How can I know the air fare class of a Brussels Airlines reservation before buying / confirming the reservation?

You may want to change the title for this thread: it is probably not a B787 ;-)
