I totally agree on this one. I know about Geneva being important but since we went from SN to bru.air, the prices on these routes have dropped, easy jet taking a share on it, so not the ideal route. Germany is already operated by Lufthansa. France and Holland are too close and easily reachable by tr...

They are right to have a strike. There are many more ways to improve, than to cut personnel costs!! Perhaps they should consider dropping some unimportant routes and consider selling a few old planes in order to have fresh capital and start efficient operations on the key routes. For instance: what ...

This is a real incident, not a joke.
On the pics you can see the airport s firebrigade deployed around the aircraft.
They say that AN-124 nose gear are quite similar to the 225's so it will probably take the skies again.
Would love to see one in BRU though :-)

Or maybe the real target is Taipei??

I know some Taiwanees people here in Belgium and they complain about the 20+ hours lasting journey and the double transit from BRU to Taipei.
Even from Frankfurt there is no direct flight to Taipei.
They for sure wouldn t mind the single stop in BKK.

BRUAIR/AA codeshare problems??

I m trying to book since days on www.brusselsairlines.com for a flight Brussels-Denver, but it will never work.
Are there problems on the site or is it a codeshare problem?

They are waiting for their end of the month.. like everyone I think Brussels Airlines is gonna stay the way it is, keeping its minimal profits, while avoiding adventuring itself into big pies. Brussels Airlines' fleet is too small to compete the big ones. Alitalia, Air France, British Airways, KLM, ...

I mentioned that if EBCI is to welcome big aircraft like A300, A330, B767, B777 a displaced threshold would be needed to make some TORA available. Now there is no displaced threshold on the 25 and if you ask it to me there is just enough room for a 737 to have an aborted-take-off before V1, even pos...

Why can t they use a 777 on Japanese routes? Japanese routes have a great potential if the can be served adequatly. The few options from NRT to travel into Europe for example are: -Aeroflot (High prices+stop at Sherementjevo) -Air France (Very high prices) -Alitalia (High prices, bad service, you ne...

Sorry EBBR-based but they have the right to claim the 600€ full in cash on top of the ticket refund/rebooking. That is as pax flying into a EU-zone on an EU carrier, so EU pax rights apply since April 2005. And having someone of Brussels Airlines saying anything on the radio live would be no use and...
