Re: Some recent SkyTeam experiences

I fly Skyteam all the time: KLM: Comfortable short haul, but terrible long haul for comfort, especially the 747's. Food and beverages not great. I avoid KLM long haul. Air France: Great comfort. Great food and beverages. Delta: Great comfort. Great food and beverages. Awesome IFE. Free messaging is ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

The REASON why the queue is there and so long:
the young guys and girls in green polo, with " can I help you ?." on the back are NOT DOING THERE JOB.
I pass through this passport control 3 times a month, and share your opinion 100%!

Re: Ryanair in 2018

Why didn't the crew just leave the airport? If someone is trying to prevent them to leave, they call the police and say they are being held hostage, against their will, kidnapped. Find hotel on phone, go to hotel, pay transport and hotel, claim back from Ryanair later. That's what Ryanair passengers...

Re: Cork-Brussels is “Skyscanner Unserved Route of the Week”

Aer Lingus and Brussels Airlines will both look at their databases and see that when they operated BRU-ORK it was loss making. Even though I believe it could be profitable if it had a schedule similar to the past CRL-SNN schedule: Friday evening, Sunday evening, Monday morning. Ryanair seem happy to...

Re: Where will you fly in 2018 ?

Yes a big Skyteam fan. In particular Delta, where my status is Diamond Medallion.
Most of the above flights are Delta, or airlines where I can earn Delta Skymiles: KLM, Gol, Westjet, Aerolineas Argentinas :P

Some really impressive lists over here. I suppose these are all business trips? I need to fly BRU-JFK and BRU-ATL a lot for work. I discovered some funky fares with Delta. BRU-ATL-BRU: $1500 But add on a weekend in Chile: BRU-ATL-SCL-ATL-BRU: $900 Such itineraries with a weekend added on, even to f...

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

Again long security queues at BRU this morning.
Also long passport queues for departing non-Schengen passengers.
