Re: BRU 21/05/2018

On Facebok, there is the group "Spotter Alert - Brussels Airport" for those who didn't know it yet. I saw passing that a 777 was coming, but there was no info on reg or even airline and it seemed to be this Omni Air International B777. The info on the EMB170 was nowhere shown. I didn't catch all the...

Re: BRU 12/05/2018 Air Belgium

Don't they ship it to FRA where they check whether everything is OK to transport it then further to DUS?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

No need to aggravate the situation imo: this is only the second time that there is a strike in the history of Brussels Airlines. If there is one airline which is associated with striking at the moment, people should look at Air France rather than Brussels Airlines...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

I'm sure that AB may have gone a certain "catalogue rental price" for an A343, as it is indeed more useful to use the aircraft and crew to earn some money (better some money than none) in order to be asked in the future. If AB can continue to fly for TUI on certain routes at a rather low price, they...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Well, the reason of Davignon that there is not enough money seems logic, but as Mutti Lufti owns SN for 100%, Mutti Lufti can stop a possible strike by giving SN the money to fund the higher wages of the pilots :D

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

At the 19hrs news of VTM, they said that the gross wages of SN pilots are equal to those of KLM and British Airways but that more taxes are levied on their wage. I think that they compared with the wrong airlines, they should compare with the wages of LH, OS and LX as SN is part of the LH-group.

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Indeed, the EU won't be able to justify towards other countries (f.e. Estonia with Estonian Air) that they let Alitalia do their thing, maybe because of the tourism there, whlist other airlines went bankrupt because of the EU policy. That would be discrimination based on nationality, which is prohib...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Air Belgium is promoting its flights to Hong Kong. I have seen ads on this forum and some other sites as well. Seems that they realised that they need to do something to get some extra passengers. Would you book with an airline that still does not fulfill all conditions to start flying ? We know th...

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Well, if the EU thinks those grants are state aid, it will be over for Alitalia unless the government sells the airline before that.

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

I just calculated that Alitalia is able to make a loss of 23,15 EUR per second. How do you even do that?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I really don't get the point of painting 2 330's of SN in EW colours as they normally come to SN at the end of the year. Why wouldn't they just paint it in SN-colours and use it for EW during summer? This would also mean that they can use the 330 longer at DUS, unless SFB and SFC aren't coming to Be...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

If the Chinese have almost 50% of the shares, it seems logical to me that the major part of the seats will already be filled with Chinese tourists who booked with this Chinese tour-operator.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

If the OO-SFB isn't active at the moment, why can't it stay in BRU for when the one of the older is AOG untill it goes to DUS?

Re: Introduction of Brussels Airlines' fifth Belgian Icon OO-SND: Aerosmurf #SNSmurfs

Well, to be fair: the website of SN is mostly not correct on where their special liveries are going. The best tip is just use Flightradar24.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Well, it all depends from where you're travelling. I just wanted to point out that low cost companies can start this line up and offer some concurrence to LH. If they are cheaper, prices from LH may drop.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Well, they cannot be standing at the gates, as there is no space, so they should be standing at the other side of the airport. Would however be quite strange, as AB posted yesterday in a reaction somewhere that they are still working on the inside. Why would they start that in BRU and finish it in C...
