The flight on Monday 27th was as scheduled. The flight on Wednesday 29th was cancelled back in September - I had a ticket booked for my girlfriend - ostensibly due to "rescheduling winter season flights" but probably due to low bookings. The flight on Friday 1 December was postponed from 7...

I don't think calling them a troubled concept is quite fair... The last financial year has quite evidently been a strain on them, and yes, they're currently losing money but FY2006 seems to have been a year for investment - aquisition of new aircraft, launching a new website and booking system, and ...

SkyEurope have just posted their financial results for 2006 which makes interesting reading. Sounds like they'll be fine. [sigh]! They've not yet announced any new routes for summer 2006, I guess we should expect to hear something in the next few weeks... fingers crossed they'll launch more routes f...

Don't forget that brussels airlines would have the "lowest fare guaranteed" concept :) could be funny on some potential EZY destinations ;) This lowest far guarantee is absolute nonsense. Here it is: "If you find a better online offer (service fees, airport taxes and extras included)...

I find it hard to believe they'd fly from Vienna considering their largest and main base is in Bratislava, just 50km away (an hours drive). I've heard that they're more than happy with their Brussels to Krakow route (good load factors and profitable) and are looking to expand their routes from Bruss...

That's a point, but working on pink planes, washing pink planes, managing a pink fleet... Think about that stupid color !!! Wizzair have a pretty dashing pink and purple colour scheme and they seem to do quite well! I think the new scheme is far more serious (and people will get them confused with ...

Easyjet to BRU?

fcw wrote:Really hope the rumours about Easy Jet starting to fly to BRU soon are true!
Read this in the forum on SNBA merging.... could it be true? Is there a citation? Could it be connected to the fact that Easjet have dropped their MST-SXF route (there's now a big gap on their network map!)...

Is this at all flexible? I mean what if you've got a 150ml tube of toothpaste or tub of hairgel that's half full? Will security throw it out?!

I've just this morning returned from Krakow-Balice, which at 6-7am is always heaving. With the new security rules in place from this morning though the airport was at a standstill! Absolute nonsense - all flights left late (NE676 to BRU was 45mins late). Don't know how they're going to cope! How is ...

Why are so many people on this forum nostalgic about SABENA? It never had a good reputation (Such A Bad Experience Never Again)! Surely ditching any association with a failed, bankrupt and unpopular (certainly among non-Belgians) airline might be better for the new, merged SN/VEX airline. Brussels A...

SkyEurope - in trouble?

Hi there, I've just read that SkyEurope have cancelled their flights from STN-KRK from January. They've also recently stopped flying from STN-BUD and to WAW in February 2006. See this forum (in Polish): http://www.pasazer.com/forum.php?lp=13422&art=1981 One contributor suggested that they're in ...
