the jets in question departed at 10:39 am local time today using longest runway after repairs were done..planes flew to amman jordan. 22 minutes later israeli jets bombed the repaired runway again..but there are no jets remaining at BEY.. I hope that the terminal will remain untouched

one thing to say: tax increase is BAD for business....let us see how long that tax will hold..and how are we to be sure that the money would be spent wisely? I bet that these euros will be used by France and other "western" countries to sustain their dictator clients in these impoverished disease ri...

eurostar

I think that many pax prefer eurostar to flights from belgium to london..it is much quicker if end destination is central London. BA works a lot on transfer passengers and business pax for the many companies located not too far away from heathrow. VLM seems to be doing well to lcy. Similar situation...

industry

welcome to the forum, great to hear from people everywhere. Little remark about your campaign though. keep in mind that avaition is an industry where money is made or lost. The reason you have direct flights to only 11 european cities is probably because there are not enough passengers for the 12th ...
