Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

I heard rumours they would open a new route to India, wich wasn't confirmed yet. I didn't knew the PAX from DUS would be for EW, it's more or less like a charterflight.

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

Well indeed we see another semester "in the green" (all results better than the year before). When we compare the first six months of 2015, 2016 and 2017, there is good evolution. Whereas in 2015 the average seat load factor was about 69,8% it climbed upto 71,4 in 2016, and reaches 75% in 2017 only ...

Ryanair seating complaints

Since a few days more and more Ryanair passengers complain about the seating. Despite some empty seats (even Ryanair has it), people who booked together (but didn't reserve a seat) are split. People complaining about a hidden strategy: making them pay more if they want to reverse a seat and sit toge...

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

Compared to last month they made a growth of 0,2% pasangers, so more or less a status quo. Compared with last year the growth is significant due to the attacs last year. A Load factor around 76,5%. I thinkg given the fact that they are increasing the amount of seats they arn't doing bad, are they?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Are these "new" frames only intended for replacement, or for expansion as well? (i.e.. both SFZ and SFY stay, for example) I think for replacement. Yet I heard rumours about opening a new line to Miami, but I'm not all sure about that so maybe in the future there might be further expansion. However...

Well I'm not an expert but given the fact that SN is only profitable since 2015 (okay there was profit in 2007 and 2010), and we don't know if it is a sustainable profit,we hope it is, I consider it as prudent management as BAAV already mentioned. Given the fact that a new A330-200 costs $229mio, a ...

Re: Sabena planes still flying by other airlines

Does the AVRO Fleet counts as well? However, the AVRO Fleet was operated by DAT wich was a sub company (daughter, or how should I translate?) and later the succesor of Sabena. They are now part of Brussels Airlines, well, pour le temps qui reste.
