Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

Mr. Descheemaeker, CEO of Brussels Airport, complains in the press that his company (and the rest of the economy) will loose a lot of money because of the strike. The CEO of Brussels Airport is Arnaud Feist. Mr Descheemaeker is the politically appointed Chairman of the Board. And yes, his political...

Off topic... The excuse for this strike are the failed negotiations in the PRIVATE sector (actually the Unions left the negotiations) and who goes mainly on strike? The PUBLIC sector. On topic... Mr. Descheemaeker, CEO of Brussels Airport, complains in the press that his company (and the rest of the...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

It is interesting to see how LH's senior management old school believes that they need a low-cost carrier (Eurowings). Look at Air France-KLM decided to reduce different (low-cost) brand names and harmonize everything, it is just cheaper to have one brand. AF-KLM came to the senses that Joon/HOP! c...

One can imagine Lufthansa is not too keen to see internal competition from them on the network side, hence them being oriented towards complementary markets only, quite clearly.
Why? I don’t think LH cares wether you fly via MUC or FRA as long as you fly them!

Connecting passengers are low yield, a ticket CDG-BRU-AFI is often cheaper than BRU-AFI on the same flight.
Same with intra-European connections, you fill your aircraft, but are loosing money.
And without connections you won t fill it and loose even more... especially on long haul...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

SN tried to be a network airline, but failed, without state aid and LH this topic would not even exist as the airline would be history since long. You have to accept it will be the German way or no way. Eurowings or no Wings, the choice is yours, but please don’t shoot the messenger! And circumstan...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Seriously, Mr Spohr, is that a characteristic of a network airline or a low-cost carrier? What you have sold, isn't yours anymore . Lufthansa and/or Eurowings and/or Carsten Spohr and/or Thorsten Dirks do with Brussels Airlines whatever they think that is the best for the whole group. Actually, it'...
