Re: Air Belgium in 2019

Well, charleroi-new york could certainly work. Make it continue to tel aviv and your booking system will overheat. With SN, DL and UA on the market? No sir. Yes sir, those airlines pay big money to use BRU, when its actually useless. The last SN flight i took from TLV, it was 99% of american people...

Re: Air traffic control service skeyes to strike in the evenings and nights of 12 & 13 March

Their exisiting salary and existing workload shouldnt be mentioned here, it deviates us from the real issue : hitting our economy so badly for the sole confort of a few people is the highest and ugliest form of selfishness.

Lets hope the minister in charge will finally act.
His silence is unbearable.

I also wonder where in Liege these trains arrive: there still is no track at Liege Airport. I suspect they use this, very nearby https://osm.org/go/0EqocjkB?m= https://siena.rosselcdn.net/sites/default/files/dpistyles_v2/ena_16_9_in_line/2019/03/04/node_355716/1284477/public/2019/03/04/B9718786925Z...

They move fast.
But are we moving fast here ?

In 3 years they build a 3000km of high speed train network.

Re: The Netherlands buy a 12.8% share in Air France-KLM Group

Thanks, André, but, for as far as I can see, that will not make a difference if ever anyone goes to court. There ARE precedents of slots being alotted by an authority that has a degree of interest in one or more competing airlines, and none has ever protested (to my knowledge). So it must have beco...
