Re: Transavia to fly from BRU with 2 Boeing 737s in Summer 2020

Not a single new destination. Just more cheap capacity on existing routes. And thus continues the race to the bottom.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Looks like Lufthansa Group registered the brand name Belgianwings already a long time ago. If SN is going to become an integral part of the EW Group, but will retain a distinct Belgian identity, Belgianwings makes a lot of sense. They could even keep the iconic b-tail. See the entry in the European ...

Brussels Airlines scraps flight because of ill passenger I was rerouted IAD-FRA-BRU on LH the next day, which included a very smooth ride on the 747-8 in LH's new C class. This apparently shows an efficient handling of the incident by SN staff. And can you tell us more about your nice flight on the...

TP602 OPO-BRU on 31 May 2013: bird strike

All, I flew OPO to BRU today on TAP Portugal flight TP602, a Fokker 100 CS-TPF, operated by PGA Portugalia Airlines. During take-off roll we experienced a bird strike and take-off was thereupon aborted. We returned to the apron and were told that the collision with the unfortunate bird had damaged t...

Re: Young boy takes flight from BRU to Malaga without any pa

Head counts only happens on non-Schengen flights I believe? At least I saw it last summer on the BRU-Djerba-BRU flights I took with JAF, but never saw it before on flights in the Schengen zone with JAF. Why would the destination (Schengen or non-Schengen) be the only condition for a head count? I d...

Re: SN's LF throughout the day

Hi A330, This is an interesting question and, although I don't know the exact numbers of SN, it is a common problem for all European carriers who operate a hub-and-spoke model with arrival and departure banks. The fact of the matter is that European carriers that have a long-haul network, will sched...

Re: Speculation on Brussels Airlines' next TATL destination

Personally, I think b.air's next TATL flight should be an evening flight to NYC because business travelers would like to have a second flight to NYC, but in the evening, and the return flight should be able to offer better (shorter) connections with the Africa flights leaving BRU after 1400 hours. ...

Re: SN/FR/BRU/CRL controversy

This is a very interesting and important debate indeed. It is in my view no coincidence that Etienne Davignon's move came one day after a visit of Christoph Franz (CEO of the Lufthansa Group). LH is no longer in the same comfortable financial position they were in a couple of years ago, and Christop...

Re: Brussels Airlines to start US service in 2012

Any insider info (or speculation) on the destination? My guess is EWR or ORD. JFK seems unlikely as there are three (soon two) carriers on the route and both AA and DL have downgraded from 763 to 752. The Washington market is I think sufficiently covered by the daily UA flight. EWR is a likely as th...

Re: 2011 Liège Airport (LGG) latest news

Hardly blackmail, I would say. They have a quieter fleet now so they're going back to Schiphol which seems far more interesting for them. And even if they decide to stay, the option to move gives them bargaining power. That's plain commercial tactics, not blackmail.
