Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2020

It was indeed a test flight to renew currency for the pilots, and it stirred up quite some commotion in the area: Drukke ochtend in luchtruim boven Zaventem: TUI-piloten moeten vliegdiploma vernieuwen na lange periode met weinig vluchten (Dutch) Ombudsdienst Zaventem ontvangt 82 klachten op één dag...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

737 MAX declared "safe" by EASA. I'll wait some time to be onboard again (flew twice on it, even a few days after the first crash)... Little confidence in this sudden turnaround, no doubt caused by economic pressures ... we will have to find out from now on the type of aircraft that opera...

Funny that quote, Limburg has one of the highest deficits in Belgium, why should they not be held responsible then for their deficits?

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Brussels Airlines doesn't fully refund booked tickets to Spain, not even Flex tickets. I havea Flex ticket Brussels-Malaga r/t from September 8 till September 12. When I don't fly, it is considered a voluntary annulation, and it will still cost me € 140,00, because technically the fligth is still o...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

A refund with tax money is quite ironic seeing that we've all collectively paid for it :roll: Mr Decroo was quite clear in parliament: SN was in negative equity, in other words: virtually bankrupt. It’s the refusal to refund bookings which kept them alive till today and as such it’s only normal tha...

Noteworthy to me is the additional commitment of €100M by Lufthansa, which is IMHO a meaningful sign they indeed do not intend to let go of Brussels Airlines any time soon. ... ...(depending the interest rate, of which I haven't seen anything BTW)...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Well, was Virgin Express not a low cost carrier? The DNA of Brussels was never the one of a full service airline. So we have two positions that are not compatible. The problem is two-fold and well stated in the above two posts: The “hybrid formula” has never worked. SN was too expensive for the rea...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Silence is the best now for the negotiations. Leaks to the press, fake or not fake, is only to make the pressure higher and lead to one party to make the decision faster. Indeed. The fact that both Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines remain silent, is ennoying some people. What an amazing day it was, F...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

It might be one of the mean tricks of CS, to let SN "die", replace it at BRU by EW and offer even lower wages and worse working conditions. SN workers might be tempted (CS knows that) to accept to work for EW rather than to be jobless. As regards the slots, I presume LH can transfer SN sl...
