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...

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...

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 ...

Flights are the following :
KF851 ABB851(?) CRL-HKG 14:00 07:30+1 1-34--7
KF852 ABB852(?) HKG-CRL 11:30 18:15 12-45--
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.

I don't think so, since LH is doing FRA and MUC, while SN took over HAM and BER (and Hannover ...)... Makes sense to me ... From a hub-point of view, yes she is.

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...
