Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

As to the future of business travel. Our organisation is active in 120+ countries, with repo office in 15+. Myself, for 20 years, I have been flying weekly, either intra-Europe or Intercontinental. We are all grounded now since March, zero flights. We foresee nothing until maybe next summer. But th...

Re: 2020 Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL/EBCI) latest news

Kinda late but Brussels South Charleroi Airport will reveal a brand identity (name and logo) in September. More info on: https://www.google.be/amp/s/www.lalibre.be/regions/hainaut/l-aeroport-de-charleroi-bsca-va-changer-de-nom-5ef877589978e21bd0cb5f8b%3foutputType=amp (in French only). So, any bets ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

AF was very efficient with me too. I was shocked by how fast I got an agent on the line to resolve my case and I already rebooked a future long haul with them, just based on how great a service they provided. I had tickets with SN too, a whole bunch of them, all cancelled. I could have accepted vou...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

If Belgium saves a German SN, can we also expect Belgium to save the 35.000 other companies employing 10 or more people in Belgium, for a total of 2.4 million jobs? What about holdings like AB InBev? Or did you think that Germany was going to save them for us? Saving all these companies will result...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

No.. 8% EBIT is the money where a company can sustain its own investment program. Let's be fair .. as of today Brussels has no substance - the 333 are owned by Lufthans and upfront payments were made from them, the a320fam fleet is leased and all is second hand. If we look at the profitability the ...

IMHO, it would be good to be sure to have a full load from BRU to MRU than from CRL.
Also good for their branding and positioning as as Belgian airline.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Belgian state has the power to deliver slot to Africa. If Brussels Airlines collapse, everything will be granted to Air Belgium or TUI fly. In my opinion, if bad mother Lufthansa get rids of Brussels Airlines and Austrian. Maybe Brussels Airlines and Austrian could join forces. Brussels Airlines fo...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

So what, farewell Brussels Airlines in a couple of months? I just wonder: would SN be viable as a stand alone airline in the current market? What other national carriers (apart Alitalia) in Europe with a 'similar' network are still alive and kicking (alive for sure, kicking not so much). I would say...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I'm quite surprised to read that cabin crew could get 2800 netto per month with mid-experience... Civil engineers get less than that when they start as juniors in large companies.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Aren't they out of money end of this week? Brussels Airlines has denied that rumour. It was based upon a leak (to Belga) of one of the many documents that were filed on 12th May with the Belgian Social Security Authority. The document was taken out of its content, of course. Any news about the nego...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

One question: what would have become Brussels Airlines without Lufthansa or any other major airline companies that would have invested in SN to develop?

SN would have never survived alone. It would have disappeared years ago.
