Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Looks like the worst case scenario is becoming reality: LH is simply gonna kill Brussels Airlines, the national carrier of Belgium. It's nothing less than a scandal. I really hope that the Belgian population will BOYCOT Eurowings as much as possible: why should Belgians fly with a lousy low cost co...

When I worked in Boston we filled a 250 seat airplane that had an average of 100 people going to Brussels and 150 that were connecting onwards... and we did that from a bunch of cities around the USA every day...
Yes, and they were losing money hand over fist doing so.

Politics
Please explain how this is to do with 'politics'.

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

Looks like the small Fokker 50 airline VLM may be operating Airbuses to China before Air Belgium which has been waiting for their start up for what 1-2 years?

The whole post is clear enough. Thank you.
The language you used contradicted the schedule you posted. I'm merely trying to help you avoid that in the future, so no need to be pissed off about it.

Indeed. Daily between BRU and China I meant. So daily between BOTH PEK (-2-4-67) and SHA (1-3-5--). Easy to check out by reading the joined the timetable.
In that case you write 'daily between BRU and EITHER PEK and SHA. 'Both' suggests daily flights to PEK and daily flights to SHA.

Back to topic, I think the border police has one of the most comfortable jobs in their profession. But of course every pax is a nuisance that disturbs their tranquility.
Hmmm, I have the feeling THEIR attitude isn't the problem, YOURS is. What a disgusting remark.
