Re: Norwegian in 2020

Another two of Norwegians subsidiaries are heading for bankruptcy. I wonder which entity is next. BTW Bad news for Airbus.

Re: KLM and/or AMS Amsterdam Schiphol Airport - Latest news 2020

KLM opens a route to Zanzibar. Competition with Lufthansa Isn't it more in competition with TUI (which flies the same route once weekly)? I reckon they aim at the leisure passenger. Moreover, it will be intersting to see if Zanzibar remains in the schedule post-COVID-19 as airlines (this applies to...

Re: Breaking: BRU obtains US border preclearance station status

AMS is a completely different airport than BRU. KLM, Delta, AA and United has really lot of daily flights there. This you cannot compare with the not so many flights from BRU to the States Indeed, hence why it may work at BRU. The only drawback remains that if connecting times are higher, the conne...

Re: Breaking: BRU obtains US border preclearance station status

Since BRU is only one of the few Star Alliance airports to get US preclearence it might open up opportunities for UA to expand at BRU. Instead of opening the 'promised' second EWR flight from AMS (!), and starting from that same SkyTeam airport a seasonal SFO route. This was/is a slap in the face f...
