Re: Air Belgium in 2019

It is 13:46, and AB should have already set up their new website... They were supposed to do it since this morning ! They were supposed to fly to China, they are supposed to fly Kinshasa, they are supposed to have a reservation site ... if I want to be sure to fly to Fort de France or Pointe à Pitr...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Recently, I took a flight from Toronto to Brussels. The gate agent checked my passport and that was it! No further passport check, no nothing ! I don't see why any country would check a passport while leaving the country ... A number of reasons: - To check if people overstayed their visa; - To catc...

Why not hoped BRU-IAH (Houston) or Newark EWR (replace JFK) by Brussels Airlines and BRU-SFO (San Francisco) by United. For more choice of connections beetween Africa and US.
Does SN have planes to effectively fly to IAH or SFO? Both are further than any airport SN flies to.

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

BRUtrend 2018 has just been published https://issuu.com/brusselsairport/docs/brutrends_2018/1?ff Nice information. I noticed that airplane movements of most Star Alliance airlines decreased, about 5% in total. This while movements of Skyteam and OneWorld airlines almost all increased. Sadly no pass...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

So sad to see there were again giant problems at BRU on saturday. Now there is an operational problem every week or so. If not a strike of fire brigade or skeyes or baggage handlers or customs or immigration officers, it is technical or software problem. Or something else. For me the management of ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

From Hanover to Toronto via SN and BRU? Seriously? MUC and FRA are the obvious choices then: much more connecting flights and more intercontinental flights (= nice if there is a last minute delay or cancellation). You can only take one flight at a time thus even when other airlines offer more fligh...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Maybe we can start dreaming about A330-neo's? And A220's for the European routes, to replace the older A319's? Let's keep fingers crossed! Those aren’t available second hand. LH didn’t retract that only profitable airlines receive new equipment. That applies to ‘network airlines’ as well. OS gettin...

They should have invested millions then because everything was working well Brussels Airlines that year should make around 50 million pr...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Whatever the name or the livery projects, SN/EW is still the home carrier employing locals here and abroad, and transporting passengers to and via BRU. So personnally, no reason to avoid SN. This applies to every airline at BRU. You can't fly from BRU without employing locals and indeed every airli...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

It's my opinion but Brussels Airlines and Eurowings are the same business model : low-cost products for the european network and "classic" (economy class and real business class) product for the long haul product. However it's sad to watch "belgian touch" goeing out on Brussels Airlines but it's lo...
