Re: African operations possible with narrow body equipment

As long as it's kerosine and it has a decent energy density you're good to go. Kerosine is a very abundant and easily distillated fuel, any smaller refinery can produce it in necessary quantity and decent quality. Typical reply for someone who is brand new in aviation, yet has to explore it all but...

For our not so aviated friends, F is first, J and C is business, Y is economy. Thanks for advising us. But let’s not forget that you are the non-aviated here. And actually, we in aviation and travel prefer to talk about First, Business, Economy (and not first, business, economy). Another proof that...

Re: African operations possible with narrow body equipment

Can't wait for the Dubai Airshow to see how many A320's/B737ER they will be ordering. You are the AFI expert, so tell us what you think. How many new ones are you expecting them to buy (or lease) at Dubai? Answering to streight questions is not your best capability, but try this one please: Will th...

Re: African operations possible with narrow body equipment

Actually, for the Africa-specific aspects, the A319 is alot easier to operate. Don't forget to double the fleet from 15 to 30, as you will need one a/c for the pax and one for the luggage. You make it sound like A333 ops to Africa is a piece of cake compared to A319 but it's not that simple. Well, ...

NCB,

To understand the importance of your posts and the realism of your plans, we really should know your position in the entire aviation-related business. You don't have to identy yourself, just mention the level please.

website Brussels Airlines : most user-friendly website 2009

Not so long ago, Brussels Airlines was criticised by a number of people who thaught (and probably still think) that everything about Brussels Airlines is bad, including the website. Here is a very neutral opinion on Brussels Airlines' website, from AGConsult (http://www.agconsult.be) http://www.usab...

Re: 5th A330 for Brussels Airlines

Aer Lingus is an example of a cash-strapped airline, it is about the size of SN and has a similar yearly revenue. It is forced to remove aircraft from leases though it has a good net worth and assets worth over 2 billions and an equity totalling more than SN's assets. This is due to their falling r...

Re: 5th A330 for Brussels Airlines

I like to take my time for this kind of stuff because I learn from it as well. Long way to go. On a scale from 0 to 10, you are now at level -2. LH phased out A300's without even considering sending them to SN. Says who? Says NCB. What are your sources to say that LH and SN haven't considered this?...

Re: 5th A330 for Brussels Airlines

When Sabena was flying to both destinations, FIH has a better yield then JNB. Today, actual revenue from FIH for Brussels Airlines is more then what they eventually could charge for JNB. Tickets for Kinshasa are more expensive, operating costs are less. And discussions/complaints about free baggage...

Re: 5th A330 for Brussels Airlines

The Dubai plan has been shelved. Because of a delay in delivery of the second A380, they will immediately introduce a service to JNB; initially 3 times per week and with delivery of the third a daily rotation. Indeed, Air France has changed plans last week. On 26th October, Flight Global wrote that...
