Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

What's happening with the VLM tariffs between ANR and MUC,ABZ,MAN? as from sept/oct 2018 they are rather high as compared to fares on other VLM-city pairs. e.g. MUC return of EUR 472 as from early september... I was considering to book a city-trip to Scotland or MUC for me and my wife in sept,but w...

Possibly a new delivery for Cityjet...?

BCY042P has just positioned into EBBR from Venice with hex code 4CAFA9. EI-FWG or a miscoded box?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

As mentioned by Passenger the SSJ is a very comfortable plane. Too bad it is not technically reliable. The fact that LH, 100 % owner of SN, does not seem (as far as I know) to be willing to help and lets SN sort out the mess alone is quite worrisome. If I missed something, please tell me. "You want...

Re: BRU Winter 2018-19: news, new routes, airlines

Primera Air has requested slots for daily service to IAD and EWR starting this winter with A321(LR), I guess. Anybody news about that? From experience, a slot request doesn’t actually mean that they WILL start flying. But it’s a start. Would that be direct flights or via its base (Reykjavik?) This ...

So Air Belgium has a Finn among its key staff, it has former Finnair aircraft and has adopted Blue1's IATA-code. What's next? A partnership with Finnair? 😊

I'm once again baffled by VLM's network developments. How do they want to attract business travellers with those flight schedules? Nevertheless, I wish them all the best.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

No it's not the SN product and brand, why would it be if it's operated out of Germany (yes even in Germany SN is a very bad known brand). But why is SN so badly known in Germany? Because LH decided to monopolise the routes from BRU to its main bases FRA and MUC. The former SN (Sabena) was flying to...

OST-SEN would be less competition to ANR-LCY, which is a solid advantage. On a less rational scale, it would also recall good days long gone (Silver City, who remembers them? Even Sabena flew Bristol Freighters to ferry cars...) I think the last regular passenger connection by air was in 1979. Brit...
