Re: Eurowings in 2019

I guess CS will keep in Eurowings whatever is profitable for them. If they have enough passengers to make DUS-EWR/JFK profitable, that route will stay. And if it's with cheaper SN-crew (cheaper than LH-crew), it's even more profitable. And you can't blame him: why ditch those customers and leave the...

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

Antwerp is so great, its citizens don't have that much of a need to fly abroad. That's why Antwerp-based airlines are having such hard times. If you live on the parking, off course you want to fly away as far as possible :lol:

It looks unfinished and temporary. As there is no official communication from SN, I don't believe this is the new livery.

United flight UA999 EWR-BRU (Boeing 787-10 reg. N12006) diverted to Gander (YQX) last night. Probably medical, since the aircraft didn't stay very long on the ground and departed again to Brussels, reached at 11:14 this morning with a delay of 3.5 hours. About 2hrs on ground, isn't that quite long ...

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

I cannot see the point. The O stands for "operations", not for "ownership" An air operator's certificate (AOC) is the approval granted by a national aviation authority (NAA) to an aircraft operator to allow it to use aircraft for commercial purposes. Does SN own any of the aircraft it operates? Wet...

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

Is it possible to get an AOC purely based on wet-leasing? There's not much "O" in AOC then. Maybe that's the reason for this one own aircraft, and the rest of the fleet will be wet-leased later? And given the experience of the past, a 50-seater like an F50 seems like a good choice to start operation...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

What about cargo? I don't know whether FIH is a route where a lot of cargo goes along too, bringing some revenue for SN? If a route isn't profitable with pax alone, a nice cargo deal might tip the balance?
