Re: South African Airways in "Business Rescue" as from 05 Dec 2019

South Africa’s new national airline could launch as early as January 2021. The government is working with private sector investors for a restructured South African Airways, and has received “more than 10 unsolicited offers” to partner with the airline. Potential integrations of SAA could include su...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

The above charge is not in line with the policy that Brussels Airlines announces for rebookings: You are right when it comes to rebooking... there are no extra charges, and only the difference in fares has to be paid... However, it seems to be that fares are different when you are rebooking or when...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

We see most airlines storing for undefined periods their A380’s. Or even withdrawing them from service. Presumingly because they are too big / costly for the low current passenger demand. Anybody knows what happens with most 748 PAX fleet ? FR24 shows some activity of the LH fleet, what is so diffe...

Seen today’s results chances of Flanker eating their hat are pretty slim.

Re: Boeing 747-8 news

It is also very clear that the world does not need big giant planes anymore. ( If a redesign is needed, it should be done on the 757-200 IMO ) Is it? Maybe for passengers there's currently (and in the next few years) no need for a 747 or A380, but what after those years? The aircraft used in 5-10 y...

Re: Boeing 747-8 news

With the news and confirmation that Boeing will stop the production of the B747, I have a question about it. The current one, B747-8, has of course a bit bigger engines than his former sisters, but why, and maybe this is a stupid question, why not replacing those 4 smaller engines by the fuel effic...

Re: BLUEBERRY

Very good and again it becomes a Belgian company I am glad that all of you are optimistic :D I still have my doubts however. Everything will depend on how the aviation market evolves. I rather see more of a future in the space industry for Sabca, where it has quite a niche position ( providing actu...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020
