The fact they fired Gustin & De Raeymaecker? :mrgreen:


Anyway, it's a very weird turnaround in one single day... Did someone had something to blackmail Lufthansa? :mrgreen:

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Based on preliminary breaking news messages it seems that Gustin & De Raeymaecker were fired and that's it (for now). Brussels Airlines' strategy needs to be reviewed. Like I thought, just the basics due to the big attention the past couple of days... A stay of execution for Brussels Airlines if...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

I know that the Board is there to take strategic decisions. But I don't know if it's wise for a Board to vote 5-4 about extremely important issues. This should be done with almost unanimity. Will the Belgian board members accept such 5-4 vote? Or will they, in a last attempt to save Brussels Airlin...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

According to someone on Airliners.net (I know, not the most reliable source) there are talks going to keep all planes on the ground "to make Lufthansa listen". Anyway, if they decide to strike, is it really the first strike in the history of Brussels Airlines? Somehow it's hard to believe ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

It would be strange that SN's performance would be bad if we look at the numbers provided to us each month.

SN was month after month one of the best performers of the group yet the results would be bad???

Davignon says in an Article on vrt he is not worried about tomorrow “I have reasons to be unhappy, but not to be worried” Suppose we’ll see tomorrow...
