Re: Air Belgium in 2018

I don’t share the optimism here. I think one has to be realist when it’s about filling planes. Terzakis in Le Vif: “...Nous allons démarrer une nouvelle route en Chine fin septembre. Il s'agit de Zhengzhou… Une deuxième destination est prévue en octobre: Wuhan. Puis Taiyuan en novembre". We’re mid ...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Some passengers can create a mess only by seeing an "Air Belgium" aircraft for an "Air France" flight. They might don't understand why the hell they don't fly with the usual french plane. "Am I at the wrong gate ?" "I have bought a ticket with AF, i don't want to fly with AB !" "Please someone to e...

The flight of tonight was almost full of passengers ! Let's hope that the passenger load factor keeps climbing.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Anybody any idea of the number of pax on the return flight ? And his flight seems to take quite long : 12h45 according to FR24, while the CX A359 HKG-CDG at the same moment, only takes 12h00 while being slightly further in distance. I compared a few other HKG- nearby BE airport flights right now, a...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

But what isn't nice, are the comments from other people on those three blog posts: It makes me think about Ryanair and their strategy : the media have spoken about them extremely negatively, but they have spoken about them very often = free publicity. It's the same here with AB, they are getting mo...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

A reliable source familiar with AB management told me that there is just only reason for the delay: 'Hardly sold tickets for the coming weeks and months' :( :o They must not lie to their customer. The issue with the russians is real. I heard they had already sold 75% of the seats for the coming yea...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Who can do the worst, can the best. If AB manages to go through all thoses problems they are forced to deal with, they will certainly succeed. But as passenger stated extremely well, if they have to cancel another bunch of flights, they might go out of business. Finger crossed.

But no compassion for their customers ! #Booking Come on now, could you please stop whining about this. We get it, you’re disappointed because the 250+ seats were sold in seconds and you couldn’t buy some. However, stop blaming others when you missed 2 opportunities please, AB isn’t to blame here. ...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Departure in Brussels is now foreseen at 1640 local, arrival in Liege at around 1700 local indeed. So the aircraft is not routing Brussels (BRU)- Brussels (CRL), but BRU-LGG-CRL. As such, the times noted in the second flightplan (LGG-CRL) shouldn’t be taken into account, since the activation of tha...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

The most likely option is to build them in lieu of the graveyard. I don't know if you know it's location ? For the third terminal, they hesitate between building one on the top of the actual T1-T2, or building a real one to the right of the Terminal 1. But this is not for today, and that is all what...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Assuming the contract between AB and CRL airport is for at least 10 years, i guess the answer is yes. It depends on the slots available... Furthermore, CRL has some projects about building a third terminal. It is still possible to build more parkings for aircafts.

Thanks big bird for the information, can you keep us updated when you know the precise schedule of the flight BRU-CRL ? I would like to take pictures of the first arrival at Charleroi.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

It never ceases to amaze me how "managers" hope to run yield management from day 1 on routes without feeding and with heavy competition, only to price themselves out of the market. So much for being a "disruptor". Scarce return tickets at 450 EUR return, but mostly at over 500 EUR return In the mea...
