Re: Air Belgium in 2019

. When there is bad news to be spread around Brussels Airlines, it features on the home page and in the forum, including your editorials and opinions (biased and even misinformed). When there is a problem at Air Belgium: ssssh, please be quiet, their CEO doesn’t like negative attention. Very hypocr...

ESSAV, ESSAT, OMLEX, OMGEX don't fly more for TUI.

OOJAH is ready to leave the fleet for Miami Air International.

Almost 50 aircraft leased for the whole season. What a mess.
A mess would have been not leasing anything and leaving people stranded

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

And this is the root cause of the linguistic problems in Belgium. Will any Walloon company translate every communication in Dutch if they have no sites situated in Flanders? I doubt it. But when french speaking people come to work or live in Flanders they want any communication in French. Why? beca...

Brussels Airlines cancels more than 100 flights in October to holiday destinations, thereby also affecting 3500 of its own customers:

Re: Consequences of the looming Thomas Cook bankruptcy on Brussels Airlines

I think the impact might be quite big. I posed the question last week and got flamed by “passenger” that TCAB wasn’t going to go bankrupt. The only winner in this story will probably be TUI. People look for a recognizable brand they trust when booking a package holiday. A new company doesn’t really ...

Re: Ryanair in 2019

So what do you suggest if someone refuses to come along? Knock them out first? Sedate them? What he and other passengers think is irrelevant, if a captain decides you’re not going, you’re not going.

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

So they certainly have to use "737 MAX 8" in commercial communication to the public. Actually, No They dont, they can even call it a “B7M8” on the website/ticket if they want. They also are not legally obliged to mention any type name on the side of the plane. Simply removing it is also a solution....

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Vueling may move away from an all-Airbus fleet and migrate to the B737 MAX, according to Willie Walsh, CEO of parent IAG. Did Walsh lose some bolts and become nuts? How will his customers react? They're probably cheap to buy now, and will be delivered long after the MAX has proved itself safe :geek...
