Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

I'm fairly sure it will not be at CRL as they don't have the facilities. If it is true that the first A343 will arrive next week, it might be logic that the paint job will be done somewhere close to Belgium. Are the painting facilities in MST big enough to handle an A343?

Re: BRU Winter 2017-18: news, new routes, airlines

I thought that Qeshm flew twice a week last summer, on tuesday and thursday? Maybe they just changed the days on which they come.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Apparently no, there are no Belgian enterprises or stakeholders who want to invest in a Belgian airline. If this had been the case, the former Belgian SN shareholders would have put money on the table in order to avoid the current scenario. They were only too happy to get rid of it. Circumstances a...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

The CAA should perhaps hurry up with the AOC's of AB and VLM, so they can fill a possible long haul gap at BRU when necessary. The situation at stake here is a possible economic crisis: no SN at BRU will mean less interesting for Star Alliance partners as they cannot connect their passengers, so les...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

I think the only way to take over these bilateral rights is that LH concludes bilateral agreements with the African countries and that the African States end the bilateral agreements with SN.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Another option could be Europe and other (German) airlines: if LH transfers all Africa and other long haul flights to FRA, there is hardly competition in Europe. Not sure whether the Comission would like this...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Indeed nice to see Gustin fight, but as we all know Spohr does everything to make EW succeed. If this has to be by firing someone, he won't care... If Gustin will bee fired (and probably a German replacement will come), it will not take long before the brand SN will be gone.

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

An ACMI agreement with any operator would work I guess. If they really want to fly to China, why don't they use a Chinese airline to conclude an ACMI with?

Re: EC Regulation 261/2004: news & court verdicts

So after this judgment, every airline should expect unexpected security checks as there is no hand of god? I can understand that you try to protect passengers, but where does it stop? Could the next step be that airlines have to pay for wildcat strikes of baggage handlers or ATC-towers?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Or the different brand look could mean for SN that they'll dissapear in EW, All depends on the interpretation of what is mentioned.

Re: Norwegian in 2018

Well it would have been good for any company, as KLM and Sky Team were too dominant on that line. Any other company than Norwegian who wanted to start this line could have done so.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

The biggest part of the money made from these lines will go to EW, should be better for SN to start some destinations at BRU.

EW should be thankful that SN is willing to help them, otherwise they couldn't fill the gap at DUS.

Re: VLM Airlines news 2018

Which is certainly true. Brussels Airport themselves said that BRU is only the 9th intercontinental destination from Shenzen, so there are probably more than enough other airports where there is less concurrence for AB.
