Re: Jet Airways out of Brussels?

I'm affraid that this very important link between Belgium and India will disappear via FRA. It's not a secret that LH wanted this extra traffic. Doesn't the Indian autorities block a further expansion or increase of LH in India? They are not allowed to operate the A388 on India, that is the reason ...

Re: Mexico and Indonesia

Nice trip, what about the jet-lag? I had actually more jet-leg problems on the Brussels Mexico trip than on the Mexico-Indonesia trip, quite strange but true. Was crossing the Pacific Ocean not shorter :) ? That was an option, but I didn't went faster. The big difference was that a trip over the Pa...

Re: Gluing flights together?

Dave, why did you buy 2 separate tickets? Airmiles ? Booking 1 trip Houston - Singapore in 1 ticket would save you a lot of hassle. You could have taken Emirates, and cheap too! For now I don't think there is anything you can do, with your 2 separate tickets. A single ticked would have costed 3 tim...

Re: Malév ordered to repay state aid, now bankrupt

Next week I am flying to BUD with Brussels Airline (Luckily booked SN). There is a 733 and a Avro 85 scheduled. Will SN upgrade these flights to a bigger aircraft next week, to have additional capacity before they start 3th daily?
