Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I'll just give my 2cents regarding the off-topic issue of why Jacques Brel should or shouldn't be on another plane of SN. He was one of the few (if not the only) Francophone singer that made the effort to sing in Flemish. I so not understand why would he be so controversial on the north of the taalg...

Let's not forget from where is started: Sabena si better known and respected in Africa then other brands... How couldn't be "more respected" if it would felt "oppressively neo-colonialist? It would imply that Africans are unable to decide with their mind what they respect and what not. And the marke...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Those in favor of SABENA, because it would still be a recognised and respected brand in certain parts of Africa... It seems to me this is a kind of nostalgic, neo-colonial vision. As if Africans aren't yet living in 21st century and don't know better. Yes, we all know that Sabena name is racist and...

Why is this new base so important ? Because it opens a completely new chapter for Wizzair. They are not any more the harmless Eastern European ULCC. And it's not going to end here. The day when Wizz will touchdown on BRU is not so far away, mark my words...

Re: FlyValan - Romanian startup to begin Genoa-Brussels

In fact, there isn't much link with Romania besides the registration of the company and the AOC. All the capital and people involved are from Moldova and Russia. FlyValan seems to be closely related to Valan Cargo, a Moldovan company that operates charter cargo flights in Africa. It's history has li...

Christian Heinzman was general manager of Tarom between 2012-2016.

Among his achievements were reducing loss by 75%. However ...

Re: Ryanair cancels 40-50 flights a day from mid-September to end-October 2017

As Ryanair only does “there and back” flights, with no overnights, you can’t be stranded abroad. Meanwhile at Ryanair: Meanwhile, the fatigue of flying for Ryanair is quite real. When I was there, I was regularly sent out of my base to fly on my days off, and without pay – to distant Ryanair bases ...
