Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Hi Andre, Maybe I was not clear enough in my message. I mean that during my booking I could not select anymore my M&M membership of SN. Only LH, LX, OS, LOT was possible in M&M. So I chose this one of LH. A week ago, when I was taking an other flight to BRU, it was still possible to chose M&M SN. Th...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Question :?: : When will the new EW/SN entity leave Star Alliance? We all know Eurowings is totally separated from Star... I have heard in 2022 at the latest, but how will they proceed if the SN brands survive for the long-haul? That must be a headache. :| :roll: I tend to say that North Atlantic a...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

SN has been looking at the A321LR, an ideal plane for thinner intercontinental routes (North America, e.g. Boston, or Africa, to make some destinations daily instead of twice-weekly). Other European airlines are successfully introducing the A321LR on such routes, namely TAP and Aer Lingus. Mutti Lu...

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

In meantime some more news regarding AMS. Groenlinks, the majority party of AMS, and shareholder of 20% in AMS, will not a further grow of AMS by at least 2023. They are checking juridical steps to do so. The government however, which is shareholder of 70%, would like to let the airport grow again a...

Re: Brussels region noise regulation

Just to put everything in perspective 9% of the workers are coming from Wallonia 14% from Brussels 77% from Flanders for me you can divide the hassle in the same proportion and the problem will be resolved! Anyway that was always my feeling it's not our national airport it's the Flanders Internatio...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Look at the article of KLM, they do the same. You can check in your baggage at a certain point, check yourself in, take the train and at the airport you can go to the gate. You will see this more and more. Aviation will and has to change. https://www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl/nieuws/categorie/2/airlines/...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

If you only have hand luggage, don't you use an on-line check-in, or from your mobile phone? Are those kiosks used often? I think that even most of the people are using on-line check-in. But it is still needed to do it also at the airport or on remote places. Brussels Airport has also a remote chec...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

The BRU 2040 project is still on the table, of course. Nothing is changed. We don't know for sure that they will do with SN/EW on the European market, how much and what kind of product. We don't know about the long haul plans about Africa and NA or will there be even more long haul. With this German...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

With less competition on the market, exit Jet Airways, it would be good if AC could consider to open a new Canadian destination ex-BRU. Vancouver was/is already for a long time on the wish list. Even it is very expensive and to get a job there, you really need to have the good "joker card", it is st...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

Hi Lucas, That will be indeed an interesting case to follow. If they want to maintain BRU still as the fifth biggest Star hub, then AC should fly from both cities to BRU. If they axe one of the cities, then you know it. But even, the TS was seasonal, AC could use smaller metal on it year round At th...

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

As Air Canada and Air Transat are both flying to AMS and BRU, we will see in the future how it will look like. Still both as a separate entity or as one company. For BRU it will not make a huge difference bcs Air Canada and Air Transat are flying from different cities No ! AC is flying to BRU from ...

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

The ANVR, The Netherlands, stated that leisure flights for AMS are very important. Leisure flights are more or less 60% of the traffic at AMS. There is a balance between business and leisure on many of the destinations to/from AMS. Without leisure it would not be possible to maintain many of those f...

Re: Brucargo 2019: cargo routes & news

A source states that Atlas Air will no longer operate to BRU. Their last flight would have been on May 14. Ethiopian Cargo is mentioned to take over the traffic. It's sad to lose another 747 operator, after also Saudia completely disappeared from BRU earlier this year. One of the reasons is bcs BRU...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Exactly. This shows now who is not willing to find a solution but only to hurt the economy, image of Belgium, but only thinking about their own profit. If the management wants to offer meetings with smaller groups then they offer you something. But you just ignored that and going on a wild cat strik...

Hainan had a thought/plan to open the first European base in BRU with flights from China to the US. But it never happened. But ok, at this moment they have three Chinese flights to BRU. Conditions to that was also to have an own hotel for the Chinese tourist and a big Chinese bank. Those two happene...

This is a disaster, I can tell you. No need to mention politics bcs it will be elections, so they will not involve now. It will be for the next one. But such actions you simply can't explain to foreign airlines companies anymore, we used all credibility. Even the current airlines at BRU and LGE are ...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Well, they can take action as long as they want, soon it is not needed anymore to have many of them. And very high time to let do the traffic control by other countries Airline companies have enough of flying to Belgium bcs of the many strikes. This costs them tons of money on top of the very high c...

The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

2018 was a record for many airlines and airports. 2019 was looking promising with some new positive changes. But in meantime it all changed. You can't predict aviation for the next 6 months and certainly not for the next year. That's why it is very interesting to start up this new topic regarding th...
