Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Flights are vital ? Maybe the most vital thing is to remain alive ? No ? But there is a market for russian roulette, we can admit that Of course not literally vital, but very much needed. Absolutely correct, BUT apply social distancing on board and increase fares to do so. Putting people on full fl...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I fear SN won't able to operate any flight by July... In La Libre, multiple sources are stating that CS is ready to let SN go bust, claiming that SN will not be able to reimburse the loan and won't be profitable for a long time, if ever. The absence of agreement between the unions and the management...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

It's rather a good thing that SN isn't integrated into the European Flight Academy. Unless, you want German-speaking pilots, as it's a requirement to enter the school. While SN asks to be fluent in one of the two main national languages, and asks you to learn the other language. They mostly take pi...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

This is one of the jets the training academy of Lufthansa is using, thus part of the hours flight by pilot trainees. By the way there are 5 of them in the fleet. How frustrated can you be ?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I'm not frustrated at all, I just find ridiculous to dare to ask someone 290 million euros while coming for a 300km flight with a private jet. Well there’s no flight between MUC and BRU, so how do you want him to come? It’a surely less expensive to fly a citation than an A320... There where a fligh...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

When do we expect to see an official list of destinations being dropped? There are two ways to draw such a list. Either do a profitability analysis of each destination and cut the ones deemed not viable in the short-to-mid term then make changes to the fleet; or start by setting fleet-wide financia...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Why fly to Newark? Let a second daily flight be flown by UA and look for another use for that equipment... Many reasons, if one tries to use logic: - JV - yes, it is a JV with UA and obligations might come from both sides - pure virtual JVs do not exist - economics - you can easily calculate and st...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I think you won't see a big airlines group starting an airline for the years to come. Priority for every company is to save cash and have incomes without further expenses. I don't see why IAG would want to create an airline in BRU, after Brexit, after Coronavirus. There's just no point for them to d...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Why didn't the CEOs of Air Antwerp and Air Belgium, and those of ANR, CRL, LGG, OST sign this letter? Then it would really be representing the whole Belgian aviation industry. It's not only BRU that needs to be saved, but the entire Belgian aviation industry. Maybe because the regional airports are...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Should the Belgium government spend money on a company that focuses on Africans traveling to Africa for family purposes? The point that is being made is that, on restart, agree with it or not, SN should focus on African destinations at first, to have an entry of cash. No matter what's the destinati...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

It's about emotion or past experience (whichever you want) when you throw numbers pulled straight out of magic hat, without any kind of actual knowledge of the situation (I suppose you don't have, so do I, if you have don't hesitate to let us know). I see people talking about reducing capacity by 50...

I remember how certain people were repeating how profitable those new leisure routes for SN were. And this without any knowledge and background We can see now how it will bring SN further into deep troubles.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If TCB stops operations, all those small holiday destinations like Menorca, Tivat, Burgas, Varna,... will be closed. And the frequencies to bigger one will be significantly reduced. They only work because TCB offers packages (Flight + Bus transfer + Hotel). How many passengers on those flights booke...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

Regarding leisure flights, as far as I remember they have an agreement with Thomas Cook as SN is not selling leisure flights on their own. So SN is receiving a fixed price. Correct me in this if I'm wrong But, Leisure flights should be the minor part, even not 50%. Business is the main purpose. Eve...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

During the presentation a few months back, didn't TD or CS say that to cut cost, you'll never see an Eurowings aircraft based outside three or four hubs in Germany? So I don't think we'll see an Eurowings aircraft based in Brussels.
