And where indeed is Air Antwerp? Shouldn't tickets be on sale by now, for a successful startup? Are they?
Still waiting for their AOC, they can't sell tickets so far.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Of course the headlines are focused on the Eurowings integration being called off, but at the same time a 'turn around plan' has been announced for Q3. This timing is very likely a tactical move to avoid industrial action during the Summer season, in which case I'm sure the plan won't be to the lik...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Would this wise decision not be partly due to the efforts and good work of the German CEO Christina Foerster? After a year and a half, she probably determined that integration was not the best solution for Brussels Airlines and Eurowings.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If there were now 3 to 5 large Belgian investors who put 200 million on the table to buy back Brussels Airlines from Lufthansa, I think CS would soon sell his "lossmaking" subsidiary.

What do you think?

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

That's wrong if the 'drop' itself wasn't a valid reason to strike. Striking as atco because you can't all be informed of something in one meeting isn't a valid reason. It's behavior of spoiled and entitled employees you won't see anywhere else. I refer to my earlier post The fine line you're talkin...

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

There have been rumors that ATCOs and unions asked additional fees. Amounts from 40,000 to 60,000 euros extra are mentioned. Is that correct, Phoenixx? I laughed a bit.
