Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Concerning plastic crap, they can easily replace with glass Bottled water if they are concerned about the en it Money. But they did not think of plastic, trust me.. they think that they found a brilliant way to cut costs. But they are stupid as this will backfire and they will eventually return the ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

That is very cheap, I find. Many people do not drink tap water at home or at a restaurant..why should they at a premium lounge? Actually this is very standard in Estonia You *always* get water with berries, fruits, even flowers-petals I don't find this cheap at all (and way better than all the plas...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Seems SN is saving on potable water at its flagship lounge in brussels! Bottled water no where to be found, replaced by flavoured tap water in large glass jars! First the small bottled waters were replaced by large ones, clearly to cut costs. Now bottled water is gone alltogether! That is very cheap...

Yes. But who will pay for it?

A free parking ticket for every customer in the bar, e.g. consuming more than €10 ?
A very good idea.

Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

The paid parking certainly has kept me away! Then again, I am not an airline passenger anyway so perhaps I am not a factor of loss... The reduction of service at BelAir is bad too, but quite understandable. They are not a charity, after all. I'm not too familiar with the surroundings, but isn't the...

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

if landing fees and other costs permit.. For LCY landing fees are per aircraft, not per tonne, so it gets expensive with only 19 seats. Comparison for ANR->LCY return flight: B1900: - ANR: 70€ (8 tonnes) T/O+landing fee - LCY: 1240£ (premium hours) / 1191£ (peak hours) ATR72-500 - ANR: 170€ (23 ton...

On the other hand better be a UK or Belgian registered airline in case the Brexit mess is not sorted out by March next year.

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?

But it change nothing I mean the situation is rotten for a while. Agree, but who's fault is that? Shareholders? Top management? Middle management? Ground force? We don't know, so "shared responsability" seems fair then. I have the impression that i have to right thing 10 times before somebody read ...

Re: 25-26-27-28-29/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

Is it an open ended strike until the company collapses? In the meantime BRU is half functioning. By the time another handler takes over etc that can take months. That's frightening that's a point but that's the responsibility of Brussels Airport to accept to work with a company with a huge depth. I...

As a pilot i land quite often in BRU and my company is using aviapartner as well.
