Re: Brussels Airlines takes over BRU-BSL from SWISS

I suppose it will be a mix. I flew to BSL several times with very variable load factors. Some flights had barely 30%, others where nearly full. One common thing though: always rather expensive flights, even for the empty ones. Maybe SN can make them cheaper, hopefully resulting in succesful LF. BSL ...

Re: Ever been to Hong Kong?

Hello, Been there a few times. A few things you absolutely should do: Peak tram on Hong Kong Island (amazing view over Hong Kong), Temple Street Night Market in Kowloon (every night a huge market around Temple Street where you can find everything), Aberdeen (fish restaurants in a very green area on ...

Anymore news here?

Re: BRU 18/01/2012

Just missed that nice bird then. I was on the previous one LX771. The regular ARJ 100. Nice flight by the way with a beautiful view on the white Alps on the horizon. Very clear view in the upcoming sun.

Re: The most loved airports in the world: 1. HKG 4. MUC 7. Z

Thanks WC_EEND for the support of my favourite airport ;) I can also reassure you that the B terminal (Schengen and non-Schengen) is getting refitted completely. The Schengen part is completely ready: I left there last Friday on my flight to BRU. In the non-Schengen zone you have a brand new Swiss l...

Re: The most loved airports in the world: 1. HKG 4. MUC 7. Z

Hi, It's been a few years ago since I went to HKG, but if I remember well I took an underground train to get from the international terminal to the main building. Very similar to ZRH. So at least travelers coming from HKG to ZRH should be familiar with it ;) Anyway ZRH definitely deserves to be ther...

Re: Abnormalities at BRU / ANR / LGG / CRL / OST 2011

Anyone more news on OO-DJY? On the website of Bilbao Airport and Flight Tracker it is still mentioned as on route and on time arrival at 11h55. We are way past 11h55. Return flight indeed indicated as canceled. Did it actually land in Bilbao or was it diverted?

Re: Last A330-200 flight at SWISS

To cnc: completely agree with you. It is not as simple as that. I work in industry as well (all be it not aviation).
But on the other hand a small loss won't harm either: if it stays into certain proportions it can even give a positive effect for SN 's future after all.

Re: Last A330-200 flight at SWISS

I would not panic for this loss. First of all, as already suggested on the forum: making a loss at SN now (by e.g. fleet renewal) might be very good for LH (lower acquisition price when buying the rest of the shares). Secondly the whole economy suffers (fuel prices for instance). When you see the an...

Re: Where will you fly in 2011?

Hi, I flew yesterday my flights with LX from BRU to DUB via ZRH. It were very nice flights: BRU - ZRH on A319 (HB-IPS) and ZRH - DUB on A321 (HB-IDC). On both flights the LF was nearly 100%. Transfer in ZRH: short and smooth as always. I can only agree with the selection of ZRH as best European Airp...

Re: Where will you fly in 2011?

Hi André, It might indeed help to increase the loadfactor, although I doubt it would be >10%. You have to put my remark in perspective: I 'm always taking the morning flights (between 6h45 - 9h30). These are full with business men. A lot of them transfering. I have no idea about travel behaviour on ...

Re: Where will you fly in 2011?

Hi André, This is quite relative when you see my total travel time. Coming from the North of Antwerp province my car travel is already longer ;) 2 ringroads, you know! The main reason to do this is the much better service offered by Swiss and Lufthansa, compared to SN or AF for example. I think they...

Re: Abnormalities at BRU / ANR / LGG / CRL / OST 2011

Hi, This morning around 6h20, while waiting for my LX flight to ZRH, I noticed a 747F of Saoudian making a go around while approaching 25R. The plane was already very low. He returned 10 minutes later and landed apparently without any problems on 25R. Anybody knowing the reason for this go-around? R...
