Re: Direct train between The Hague - Brussels Airport in 201

A very good idea that train link via Brussels Airport! In the future, when the new Josaphat tunnel will be operationable, they could do: The Hague-Rotterdam-( Roosendaal )- Antwerp Central- Brussels Airport- Brussels Schuman- Namur- Luxembourg- ( Strassbourg ). Then you have a train link between all...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

Lufthansa and Jet Blue have asked permission at the US Ministery of transport to codeshare on flights between Europe and JFK. This together with CO joining Star at the end of this year will make New York ( EWR and JFKL ) another and important hub for Star Alliance, besides ORD and IAD. Maybe an SN f...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

I have just been playing around on great circle mapper website with the various LH group hubs ( yes , I know , I am a tragic case ! ) and even though I do not think that SN should jump on to the North America bandwagon it did occur to me that BRU is the furthest north/west point out of the 5 hubs t...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

@Conti764; JFK is listed 14th on the most important airports of the world ( in pax amounts; 47.716941pax ) compared to EWR on the 21th place( 36.367240 pax ) ( source: magazine aero international 10/2008 ). So JFK is still more important than EWR, and I think for every non US airline. Swiss, LH and ...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

What I forgot to mention: 4. Cost efficiency ; within the LH group wich airline ( pilots and flight attendants ) will be the "cheapest"airline in operating costs( for example the amount of income for their fllying staff). This will also will have an influence on the routes (re)shuffle betw...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

I agree with most of you that Africa will be the first and most important continent for SN to expand in the next comming years. But I think that new long haul routes to North America will also follow very soon: 1.Within the LH-group, BRU will be a very ideal hub to fly to the USA and Canada. BRU is ...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

The Virgin Group still has a small stake in SN Airholding; When SN and Virgin Express consolidated ( "fusie" ), Virgin didn't sell to SN Airholding. I think there's still a representative of the Virgin Group in the new board of directors of SN Airholding ( Stephen Murphy ). In the actual s...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

Is it possible that the stake of the Virgin Group in SN Airholding can be switched to Lufthansa for a small part of the Lufthansa stake in BMI to Virgin Atlantic?
Then Lufthansa would already become a majority shareholder in SN Airholding before 2011, when they get full control.

Re: EU to give green light to LH/SN soon!

JFK, because there won't be a US Star Alliance partner for this link ( AA = Oneworld, and Delta = Skyteam ). I think in the near future also: -ORD ( LH flies, I think, 4 times a day to ORD out of Frankfurt and 1 time out of Munich );it's a very important Star Alliance hub in the USA. -BOS -IAD In Ca...
