Re: Korongo airlines first flight

- a second 737 will indeed be sent over, mainly because ZC gained additional traffic rights to JNB. Is that on top of the 4 they planned on operating already? It seems so, if indeed they need a second 737. Another -300, I suppose? which one do they have available? Yes, 6-weekly JNB is planned with ...

Re: Brussels airlines future and financial prospective?

If some of your neighbours who live in houses twice as big as yours and make far more money than you, are known to be paying zero municipal taxes My neighbours earn much more than me and don't pay any tax : they work at the European Union. By the way, is the new rule applicable to EU employees ? I ...

Re: Brussels airlines future and financial prospective?

If everybody's got to pay belgian taxes, then they should at least get the same benefits, unions, etc Which they will once they start paying taxes here, I am sure. That's how the system has been working for ages for pretty much everybody else, except Ryan Air crews, it seems. If I had the choice, i...

Re: Brussels airlines future and financial prospective?

Brussels Airlines asked for measures that'll take in effect before the summer...wonder if the Belgian government will do something or if they'll just wait for the European rules to take into effect. Don't hold your breath for it; this will take years still. Seems like Tolipanebas is right: http://m...

Re: BRU summer 2012: latest news, routes, airlines

BTW, any updates about the U2 LPL-BRU route? Closed indeed, as rumoured? Guess this reason is the entrance on daily/two daily flight from CRL to MAN and their 'dumping'-fares. Never believed in this route with that one daily late afternoon flight... Have Easyjet already communicated this closure? I...

Re: BRU summer 2012: latest news, routes, airlines

May we know how much you've paid for the ticket, given even 99€ on Brussels was too expensive? Now that competition has given in, I dont now if they will put VCE up for promotion now? I wonder if they will show up in September? If they can't make this route work in high season when a lot of tourist ...

Re: 9W plans global ops in MUC, move out of BRU possible

Those are some interesting numbers: they seem to be showing just O&D traffic, otherwise flights like BRU-IAD or the 2 BRU-ORD would have a really low loadfactors for sure, so I assume these figures are simply derived from IATA ticket booking data, taking into account just point-of-departure and fina...

Re: brussels airlines to New York!

Isn't SN a member of the TATL JV of UA/LH/LX/... ? In that way all revenues are shared, no? I was under the impression this is only for the transatlantic route itself, as the name says. However, I am wondering how revenues are shared on more complicated routes like NYC-BRU-FIH? And how it is done f...

Re: brussels airlines to New York!

To be honesty, this is not correct. SN and UA have ATI between the US and as such it doesn't matter if SN or UA operates the flight. this is only half true! For the O&D market its very true, for transfer pax however there are some sharp angles. UA gains little from SN transfer pax but must fully ta...

As for the success of BRU-JFK. It all depends on how they're going to do in the Winter. Anyone knows that demand for transatlantic flights is high during Summer and goes down heavily in Winter (with January - March being the most depressing time). exactly my thoughts I am convinced there's a good r...
