Re: More 787 woes?

When will the luck for the 787 come back, Boeing doesn't really make a good experience lately with it's 787.
Could it be possible that the A350 might be finished earlier? or the 747-800?

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

But there's an alternative : SN might codeshare with the *A members serving those big destinations. They shouldn't rely exclusively on LH for feeding their BRU hub. Correct and for that SN must make their BRU hub as attractive as possible, meaning building further on what they are good: AFI. The mo...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

As someone has already mentioned, bru air could follow the example of air canada, and configure some A319 for medium to long range, they have the legs to make it to practically any place in sahara africa, equip them with PTV's and some decent legroom and you might have a good shot at markets in nort...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

I understand and aknowledge that they need to expand in Africa, the black continent has been on the rise for several years now, and businesses are really starting to kick off. But i also think that at LH they know that a "flag" carrier who only flies to Africa is quite dissapointing, so I ...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

To say that the the 737 is a better working horse than the avro is comparing apples to pears, they have a different purpose, the avro is used on bussiness destinations & small airports (LCY, Rotterdam, Antwerp, ...) the 737 has been the perfect leisure aircraft since the start. I hope that they ...

Martinair (MP) sells it's remaining 767's

Sad news today! It seems that Martinair returned 2 boeing 767 to their leasing company and is selling their 3 other pax. 767. Which means that they have no more "aging" passenger fleet... Flew them to Aruba in the winter in comfort class, and they were "pretty" good for a charter...
