Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Weird, maybe they are late to load the flights in their booking system? (hoping) Don´t think so. BE is still underway in its restructuring and that route is not the last one to go for sure. They likely have set a comparably high threshold (for keeping a route) where ANR-LGW just doesn´t perform as ...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

"Who would have guessed that outcome" :roll: By - once again - cancelling their flights to HKG they have lost that tiny little bit of credibility that was left. Even if they'd eventually make another attempt I would not consider booking them. Period. When Mrs MHG and I fly to Asia we always go via H...

Re: Some recent SkyTeam experiences

Having to wait in a freezing railway station is a big no-no for me, too. But - who asked you to wait at the railway station all the time rather than spending at least the major part of the waiting time in the terminal ? Despite there are very few seating possibilities @ CDG in any terminal it´s stil...

Re: Lufthansa is trying to sue passengers for skiplagging

There is much more to it than visible at first sight - and communicated in most media. In that particular case it was easy for LH to have proof of the passenger intentionally skipping the last leg. That passenger had booked a corresponding one-way ticket with LH on a separate booking for FRA-TXL fit...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Maybe Chalair? I flew them numerous times to GVA From ANR .. excellent flights But were almost always empty. I guess that they lost a lot of money operating out of ANR. Maybe LCY Will bring them back? Unlikely because their aircraft are too small (Beech1900D / max. 19 seats) for the ANR-LCY market....

Could the DO328J be seen in ANR soon? I guess the DO328Jet is faster that the ATR72 and that could explain the flight time... Only in case Sun Air decides to tap into ANR market ... At least their recently started domestic flights from FDH (Friedrichshafen/Germany) are operated by their Do328-300 (...

Re: VLM Airlines news 2017

Oostende-Amsterdam and Antwerp-Rotterdam? What a joke! OST-AMS-OST might make some sense as an in-house feeder for their long haul flights. And ANR-RTM point-to-point would really be a joke unless they target RTM customers to go via ANR. My estimate is that RTM-ANR will not be viable even as a feed...

Re: Plane spotters asked to help reporting suspicious activity around Brussels Airport

This is certainly a smart idea although not really a new idea.

In München (MUC) this is done for many years already.
Belgian Police should get in touch with Police at MUC airport regarding their experience with Spotters as "vigilant observers".

I am deeply concerned whether this venture will ever come into operation.

Re: VLM Airlines news 2016

My experience tells me those managements/companies that are generally quiet and very cautious in releasing infos to the public are usually those that survive the set up process and make it into actual operations. So, I´m still optimistic VLM 2 will become operational eventually. Let´s just be patient.
