Re: Last Minute deal CRL to Bilbao on an Avro

Wouldn't it be better to just book BRU-BIO, SN will take you there on the selected dates for 190 euro...
No offence though, love the kind of action you promote over here. But what would be the advantage of taking your flight? I don't really understand the concept!

Re: Fear

Well, If you head to the tropics there are usually lots of little bugs that could find their way to Europe and endanger local fauna and flora. Also I wouldn't like to be stung by a tropical insect on an airplane, imagine if someone got an allergic reaction at 10.000 ft! In any case, glad you found y...

Re: Fear

To be honest lately I've been having very bad thoughts too about my next flight to the US, so you're not alone. It's going to be a family trip but we're departing from LHR to LAX on a VS747 in september. I've never really had a fear of flying but lately I've been thinking about it too much (must be ...

Re: Brussels airlines future and financial prospective?

I'd say do it! Let the "Wetstraat" know that things aren't going well and shake things up a bit in order for them to hopefully react.

WHAT IF Brussels Airlines would go broke?

Just a hypothetical question. Would there be a restart? Or would JAF try to move itself into the flag carrier position?

Re: Reg. Request Jetairfly JAF4703 CRL-TFS on 16/02/2012

Hi, I just came back from Tenerife & on both legs I had the 737-800 "Magnificent" with the new sky interior. So did my father who came a few days later. So I guess it's stationed for the remaining season in CRL.

Re: Belgium 30/01/2012 Strike

Easy, then vote in the next elections on the party that can change this turn around. And I guess there's certainly one in Flanders which will get my vote for the first time in 2014. Most people that strike don't do it because our government is running on square wheels, but mostly because of the pens...

Re: Belgium 30/01/2012 Strike

Seriously, as a young person that will join the job market in a couple of years I'm sick of all these strikes. Don't take people hostage so you could have a day of work. Instead of doing any good, this strike will only damage the image of Belgium even more for potential investors. Stop handicapping ...

Re: Meals on Jetaifly worth the money?

I'm not really a Ryanair-person. I don't want to be checked if my luggage exactly weighs 10kg, also hand luggage is not enough for a week (on a beach holiday: towels, sandals, ...) & this way you support a local company. Furthermore I liked their product for a charter, so the choice was quickly ...

Re: Meals on Jetaifly worth the money?

Thanks Regi, but I'll pass. I just had enough to pay for my flights as a student (€220, Ryanair was around the same price with bags & stuff). Free lodging at the island ;)

Meals on Jetaifly worth the money?

Flying with JAF from CRL to TFS, it's a morning flight, departing at 6.30. Is it worth buying breakfast on this flight? Is it a hot one? Or should I just pass it?

thx in advance

Re: Carbon tax: higher prices for tickets and controversy

I don't really understand this EU-law, but it would have been better if they taxxed certain types of airplanes flying into the EU; that way they could promote the sale of more environment-friendly types like the A380, A350, the NEO, etc...
