Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

I agree really short flights are ridiculous and should be replaced by alternative means of transport, but I disagree with the often quoted range of what is a short flight in this respect. When you see the green party for instance table ranges up to 1,000 km as the minimum range to fly over, they cl...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

The fact that EW isn't making any profit might be irrelevant: if they need to make (some) loss to keep the other LCC's away, it might be worth it. If EW should raise their prices to become profitable, they leave a bigger part of the market for for instance Ryanair to fill in. And more and more peopl...

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

No need to dig for SN: its results are drowned in the big loss of EW. :cry: What makes you think SN’s figures are good? (Not saying they are bad, just curious to know whether you have data to back up your statement. The only thing I see is stagnating growth and an unhealthy load factor) The SN figu...

Re: Belgian FIR quasi-closed during night 01-02/03

That contingency procedure requires the approval from Canac (for flights to be allowed to transit from Charleroi (or Liège) to France (or Germany). If they strike in Canac, the FIR is closed and they will not approve the use of that procedure. That would mean they are killing part of their strike b...

Eco/Climate/CO2-compensation experiences?

I'm not really sure this is the right sub-topic, hopefully it's the right forum anyway. As there's more and more fuzz about climate, I was looking at the climate-cost of our trip to Japan. Although I'm an aviation-enthousiast, I don't mind the idea to pay or compensate for the impact on climate I'm ...
