Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The post of Ansett is obvious; LH only takes swiss and austrian with them into the guarantee-story. The previous years of financial loss, despite high occupancy made SN not attractive, the weight of the Africa-added-value was too low... sad story...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Not only 320s, with the SN 330s on long-haul and surely the africa-lines: even most of their business seats at several thousands of euros (per seat) are sold !! The revenue of these flights is at max , and still not being able to make any profit - for God's sake, what is wrong with the policy of thi...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

All those very long stories...boring to read...bottom line: before corona SN was not able to make profit, even not with an occupancy on nearly all flight of +90%. This is a very important fact for the decisions to come soon... No big stories with hundreds of figures...just ordinary farmers-wisdom gu...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The 300 millions fund by the state is on its way, but this is only temporary. It should be used 100% for operational costs, but as our country has a reputation for illogical behaviour, a very big part will be used to pay out golden handshakes to the older managers in the B.house, for whom this is th...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

After one (exeptional) year with small profit, BA financial results went down again, despite a passenger occupancy of +90% and a good yield rate. Nobody seems to be able to verify nor solve this problem and the challenge after Covid will be even higher, so...

Maybe the intense survey is related to the fact that Apple maps wants to defeat Google maps by 2021 ?

Benelux VFR traffic

Latest days you can observe 2 phenomenons in our airspace on FR24: very intensive daily aerial survey, new misson for google ? And very much helicopter VFR flights, peculiar with Robinson helicopters, looks as Robinson owners have been invited to perform medical flights ?

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

I agree about cargo, but what percentage actually on FR24 is freight ?? we cannot sit together with non relatives in our car, but inside planes we can sit with 150 ?? Arrivals at Brussels still without any screening, even hundreds of passengers out of highly infected zones as spain can come in and s...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Citizens of european countries are advised to stay inside, not to make big displacements, land borders are closed out of fear for Covid19 spreading, but if you look today (and next week?) at FR24, hundreds of planes still carry thousands of people between european countries, even in and out top 5 in...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

When it goes tits up the MAX requires flying skills which today’s pilots (JAF probably being a rare exception) don’t have anymore! I agree for 100 percent with this statement of Poiu, today newbies come on a right seat with passengers and it is their first real flight in a 737 (or 320) is this norm...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Oosfu is still on ground because there is a shortage on the market of PW engines....
Is there still a market of PW engines ? or is it a search on a market for used / recuperation parts ?
