Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

When I buy a flight ticket, I also get asked to rent a car and make a hotel reservation. Does that mean I should rent a car in case the bus I would take goes on strike, or make a hotel reservation in case my backpack containing my tent doesn't arrive? No, those are just related options, related to ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I did some photoshop (I'm not an expert) and these are the changes I would like to see (or think that will happen): - bigger titles - no b-logo on the fuselage - all white fuselage (LH Group standard) - smaller b-logo on the tail (much more classy than the big, bulky one we have today) - no gradien...

For those who say that Brussels Airport doesn't invest enough:

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Thank you Passenger for your explanation. I knew that I could count on you on that. @Stij, If you book a holiday, flight ticket or what ever, they always ask you if you want to buy this extra travel insurance. So this is not new but already for decades. So why it is now such a surprise and why it h...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Dear Stij, You really think that the airport is leaning backwards? The airport, together with the manufacturer, are solving the problem. The issue with those very busy months now is that a testing period is not that obvious. So it has to be done when it is calmer during the day or night. Regarding ...

So sad to see there were again giant problems at BRU on saturday. Now there is an operational problem every week or so. If not a strike of fire brigade or skeyes or baggage handlers or customs or immigration officers, it is technical or software problem. Or something else. For me the management of ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

JNB or CPT is a little overly optimistic. For growth to Africa I'd rather look to upgrading current destinations and maybe reinstall former, terminated destinations. Althought CPT is high on my personal wishlist... I doubt it... to much low yield VFR... It's probably better for the hub to go deeper...

Re: Question on Airplane Boarding

Because it generally doesn't work. I remember my flight from LHR to JNB last year, was on an A380.
