Not quite sure about the trains being the next most efficient means of transportation after the bicycle. How many trains do really travel fully loaded, or at least with a load factor of 50%?Not many, except for rush hours between Antwerp and Brussels. A guy working at the NMBS told me once that stop...

Airplanes VS nature

I just read on DE ANTWERPENAAR that airplanes are told to be the less ecological mean of transport, after the car.
I though thought that even the A380 was told to be more economical than a car?

Sabena is dead. Brussels Airlines is born and has a different strategy, a more low-cost like structure. And that s the best for now and the future, because the future is in the low-cost. And they (the managers) know that. About this discussion: What about taking it straight between the 2 and making ...

On the other hand, you can not approve the 40mins turnaround for only Ex-SN staff, while Ex-VEX staff will continue serving the 30 mins. That would be unjustified and discriminating...

I agree on recent disorder being serious issues, but some people start saying that unions lead to Sabena's bankruptcy. Well I might be wrong but I thought it was Swissair that gave Sabena a ride to hell. Okay unions have contributed to this happening, but that wasn t the main cause!! Unions are impo...

Although it s one of the emptiest international airports in Europe, you should agree that it s also one of the most expensive as well as the slowest (in regard to turn-around times). For these reasons, not that many carriers are interested. Perhaps on a long run it might interest some long-haul carr...
