Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

About the regional airports and subsidies that's crazy knowing that this is already a polluting industry with no tax on oil! Thx for the clarification. at And now see the numbers at CRL Airport. - nearly 8 Mio Pax - 70% market share of Ryanair - makes 5,5 Mio Pax, or equivalent of 20 aircraft - 10%...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The question is one wants Ryanair and Wizz as benchmarks. Let's start with employment - Ryan is using contractors - so where is no fly there are no earnings and no social security for the employees. Is this what you want? Secondly - they fly based on subsidies - so all taxpayers pay the subsidies f...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Why is the difference so big between a low cost has Ryanair making huge profits and other airlines? That's the question looks like Ryanair has the right business model for the future. They will survive without state aid I understand the anger of them it's not fair. And I repeat it's not Brussels Air...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Interview in VTM Nieuws with Decroo: Stef Wauters (News anchor): It's known that Carsten Spohr asks 8 to 9 billion from the German government but that he doesn't want any governmental input in return. Can we expect the same here? Decroo: If you don't want any governmental input, you shouldn't ask f...

Does the employees of Brussels Airlines proposed a salary cut like with Lufthansa?
You want them to fly for free?
A LH captain with its 45% salary cut will still make more money than a SN captain with his 100% salary............
I understand it was just a question.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

They will axe also 2 long haul destinations. I suppose that this can be one to Canada where now Air Canada and Air Transat are flying and one to The States? I would guess Toronto and Washington, as there are already Star Airlines there But wow, such cuts. will there be anything left? I wonder which...

According to Stefano Patuanelli, Italy’s Minister for Economic Development, AZ will leave Skyteam on May 21 and will be looking at different options with regards to alliances. It will have a fleet of about 90 planes with at least 30 per cent long-haul. He also said it is very difficult to see a sce...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Many people here say that Lufthansa has bought Brussels Airlines for almost nothing: 65M for 45% in in 2009, plus 2,6M for 55% in 2016. That’s not a lot of money indeed, compared to the turnover. But if one buys a company, one doesn’t only buy the good: one buys the good, the bad and the ugly. Fact...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

As much as I think that owing a blocking minority share or even the nationalisation of Brussels Airlines would be beneficial, I seriously doubt whether one of both will happen. Spohr doesn't want governments to become shareholders and LH doesn't want to give up SN to lose its control over Brussels ...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Maybe because the regional airports are state-owned airports? ("state-owned": by the regional governments). Maybe because CRL and LGG have already been served by the Walloon government?
