Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Regarding Tel Aviv, and some wikipedia'ing... BRU-TLV is 3255km, so expect about the same for ANR. ANR has a runway of 1510m. A Fokker 50 has a maximum range of 1700km (and it would take over 6 hours to fly there), so that's no option at all. But what are the options... Good-old Avro's? CityJet has ...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

If I remember well, they flew ANR-LCY in the past, and that company went bankrupt. Why try again?

Maybe because they have a better plan now?

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

That is a very strange way of thinking. So according to you the home carrier should focus more on holiday destinations instead of business and connecting pax. Well whit this kind of model you can implement EW here than. Holiday flights should be secondary and not the main purpose. Or even better to...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

The current aircraft, even the newer are not suitable for such long flight. For those flight a proper rest area (a bunk) is needed for the rest of the crew. The current configuration is then not suitable. Bunk should be installed in the cargo area with an access from the cabin. If not, no longer fl...

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Giving up Eurowings is a threat to Lufthansa itself as well. If some other company takes over Eurowings, or Eurowings stops and someone else takes over the flights, it will be a stronger competitor to LH than Eurowings was. So even if EW isn't profitable as-is, it might keep LH profitable. Three glo...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance, Oneworld and Skyteam under one roof?

Why would an airport care about the alliances and their placement? The only reason would be to accommodate transferring passengers and limit their connection time. But having the connecting passengers walk through your revenue-generating mall, and on the other hand keeping Shengen/non-Shengen split...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

People, let’s stop with this drama! Can anyone explain this guy that we are in Europe and here the planes are checked and if any aircraft is not fit for flying, it doesn’t fly! For such a short hop and for a total stay on board of perhaps one hour, a turboprop is more than acceptable. A member said...

One of the 2 new routes might be Los Angeles, operated by Brussels Airlines (only rumor).
I thought I remembered reading (here?) BRU-LAX was too far for SN, but on the other hand, I can see A330 flights from LAX to AMS, MAD,... So it should be possible?

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

KLM already offers Thalys-tickets from Antwerp (ZWE) to AMS. As it's more KLM supporting this than AirFrance, I don't think ANR-CDG will be a thing very soon (and ANR-AMS neither). I thought they were one company.. Air France KLM is the holding group, with Air France and KLM as subsidiaries. Beneat...

And, moreover, there is a codeshare with KLM, so it should help a lot to get the airplane as full as possible!

Re: Eurowings in 2019

I don't think LH/CS minds having SN in its portfolio. As long as they're profitable, and that's what we hear most now: make money. With SN being part of the LH group, LH has control over routes flown, and a big impact on BRU, so that's a good way to prevent another player becoming a threat to LH.
