Re: Air Belgium in 2019

I really wonder how Terzaki still managed to convince investors to believe in his dreams...

I also wonder how long this new chapter of Air Belgium's adventure will last.

Re: Website referencing aircraft routes

The first one.

For instance, I'd like to select:

Airline: KLM
Aircraft: B789

=> Which destinations are they flying to with such aircraft and what is the schedule for each route ?

Website referencing aircraft routes

Hi, I'm looking for a specific website referencing all aircraft routes operated by airlines. I mean, not an flight tracker (e.g. flightradar, flightaware,...) but a website where it's possible to select an airline and view its aircrafts' routes. I'm pretty sure such kind of website exists but unfort...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Let's bring back Ronald Reagan...

Seriously, this is a pure shame. Those unions full of egocentric individuals who desperately keep clinging to their privileges and refuse to adapt to a changing world are what drags down our economy.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Still don't understand why SN keeps spending money on painting their aircrafts knowing the fact that the brand will disappear.

Such a pity to see that Belgium will have no more "Belgian-branded" airline...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

When it comes to communications, you don’t have to tell everything but whatever is said has to be true. Otherwise, if you don’t keep your promise, you expose yourself to a high risk of developing an atmosphere of uncertainty about you.

Well, charleroi-new york could certainly work. Make it continue to tel aviv and your booking system will overheat.
With SN, DL and UA on the market? No sir.

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

Should we really be surprised? AB proved once again, it’s lack of credibility when looking at their initial plans vs reality. They still stay airborne with ACMI flights. Well ok, fine. Good for them. Then stick to it, review your ambitions and stop announcing business developments that won’t happen....

« We are maintaining our development plans ». Sure you are. We just all wonder when they’ll become a sustainable reality... Up to now, it’s a a complete different story compared to what’s been told at the beginning.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

They should really improve their corporate communications. I’ve never seen such unprofessional communication from an airline company. What is their key message? What are they trying to tell/sell ? Posting pictures of unreadable content and unknown people to the general public makes no sense at all...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

To make your long story short...it's all about branding right? A brand name that isn’t enough relevant to match the company’s initial business plan which is now compromised. In terms of image, they’re in a very bad situation right now which, besides the financial situation, helps increasing the lac...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Another point is the lack of match between the brand name and the brand positioning. Especially when we take a look at Brussels Airlines who struggled to keep a Belgian identity even way before Lufthansa took over the company. They did their utmost to make the "Belgitude" live but Brussels Airlines ...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Air Belgium is: - a Belgian company with its seat in Mont-Saint-Guibert, - based at a Belgian airport, - initially planned to fly scheduled flights between Belgium and China. What do you suggest? Should they re-name themselves, re-paint (sticker) their planes and put up...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

They will make a lot more money flying ACMI this winter than empty planes to Hong Kong so probably the right decision... and look at HiFly... they started ACMI with the A340 and now are the only airline in the world to offer the A380 in ACMI. AB is very lucky that this 787 situation is going on rig...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

I'm quite surprised about the media coverage... I mean as headline news, Air Belgium is not mentioned. I understand there are more relevant news but still, we have to look carefully to see an article about it on several news' websites. Was covered by RTBF in the midday TV news ! Well, let's hope to...
