Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Anyone knows what OO-SFE is doing in Amman? Yesterday and today OO-SFE had several short flights (?). I thought it was only there for a cabin refit. Or are there also technical issues with the bird? See: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/oo-sfe Cheers, Danny these are no flights but just ...

CityJet is using one AR8 (i/o CR9) these days: EI-RJW.
There's an A319 of Eurowings DASTX also used...
probably because SN doesn't have enough aircraft right now to deal with the summer madness, which is a good thing

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance and Oneworld under one roof?

Well, I think the 767-400 is an upgrade over the a330-200, pax wise that is. Delta's configuration allows more passengers in the 767-400 than in the a330-200, plus it's a 2-3-2 layout in economy, which is very nice :D ( not complaining about that change here :D ) Only downside I see is that the cabi...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance and Oneworld under one roof?

Impressive summary, Atlantis. About Blue Sky we don't speak bcs BRU is between those two major hubs and those home carriers, KLM/AF, are going to replace planes by trains. I guess you mean SkyTeam. They are worth looking at, because Delta has always been a strong contender in BRU with its two major...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Flew WAW-BRU with SN yesterday morning. First time I was on that 06:45 flight (due to misconnection the evening before, not unusual with LOT). Was a full boat but for 4 seats. After boarding, Capt Speaking announced a 30-minute delay due to restrictions at EBBR (07L arrivals) which triggered the ne...

KLM or even Turkish Airlines or Ethiopian Airlines, despite to be in the same alliance, are bigger competitors.
KLM is part of SkyTeam, not StarAlliance.
I think he means Turkish or Ethiopian airlines, despite being in the same alliance ;) and that KLM is a competitor ;)

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

I don't really see how the A321XLR will become a game changer either. but we will see how things turn out. I loath the idea of a transatlantic flight on an a321 ( just like I loathed the idea of a 757-200 ) I can see SN using one for an evening flight to NY tough. FYI: the 757-200 didnt drastically...

Lufthansa will look at ordering the A321XLR, says chief executive Carsten Spohr, but added that he did not think the new model was a game changer. Can Spohr be wrong on this one too? Oh, he will never openly admit a mistake, despite the recent slap he got in his face... It remains to be seen... SN ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Sobelair was the last one using a 767-300er till 2003, but that was really unprofitable because of the fact the 767 couldnt be fully loaded. ( I remember this very well, the last few rows were empty because of this ) The range is there, but JNB is a 'hot and high' airport. ( this is the reason why ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

JNB or CPT is a little overly optimistic. Wasn't there a BRU-JNB service some 5 or 10 years ago? With a certain degree of success, even? I vaguely remember Sobelair, A340, ..? Though that seems an unlikely combination. Sobelair was the last one using a 767-300er till 2003, but that was really unpro...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

On the other hand, SN never was a true stand alone cartier within the LH group. For years, LH only held a minority stake and, accept for a survival loan, didn't interfere much in SN's business. When SN became fully owned, it immediately got placed under EW-umbrella. It remains to be seen how CF and...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If LH/CS/CF say that SN still has many efforts to make, it would make sense that some of the efforts be made not only by SN (employees ?), but that LH as owner of SN takes part in theses efforts (young fleet, sorry for the broken record, Poiu ;) ) Well, I have been beating the wrong (EW) drum quite...

E40/R22/R0 are meant to be dealt with with the upcoming works on the Ring. More info: https://www.werkenaandering.be/nl/homepage However, the Zaventem Interchange between the A201 and the R0 is a huge problem, haven't seen much plans for that.

Re: Question on Airplane Boarding

On Emirates, a zone is mentioned on the boarding pass. Boarding calls are made using the different zones (passengers seating in the back of the plane board first). This seems to be working quite well, I'm surprised that this is not standard procedure with other carriers... Duke Because it generally...
