Re: "Eurowings Europe" on track to start in March 2016

If a low cost airline wants to compete to Ryanair, there are two possiblities: 1. you also rip off innocent passengers, not aware of the unusual conditions & abnormal surcharges. 2. you don't rip off passengers, but you save on all operational costs. Maybe the Eurowings contracts are indeed amongst...

Re: Brussels Airlines June '16 figures: +3,8% pax

Indeed impressive. Not only if you take into account what happened in March, but also knowing that the load factor remained stable despite adding more capacity (1 Avro left but 1A330 added along with A320 and A319s and wetleases). It is quite the opposite, increasing frequencies leads to an increas...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Already now you can see the difference: flying on an RJ is getting increasingly rare these days. Just want till autumn next year: all will be gone then and replaced by more than 30 BRU-based A32F. About their plans for 2018 and further, tolipanebas: do we have to read that as 'bigger planes' or 'mo...

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

I do t understand neither why people 'escape' to AMS and CDG. What is the common sense of going to these busy airports using as much (or more) time than queuing in BRU (for the time being). What we need right now is people supporting our airport and not fleeding it due to this (temporary) check in p...
