Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

Laurent Mercier, today on twitter: Third time in 12 months that this plane @FlyingBrussels to New York has a technical problem. Going back to the gate 😤. Last time we got a eurowings plane and the other time it did not leave brussels and nobody informed us in NY. We will never take SNBA again on th...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

This was the last decade where we still could speak about belgian pilots, flying belgian planes for a belgian airline, the future will be that our guys become european staff operating european airlines... is this worse ? i don t think so...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

SN467 BRU-Kigali (SFU) turned around above Innsbruck and heading back. I had already posted my doubts about the fuel contamination: not normal that there were no complaints from other acft that took from the same '' barrel'' there are other causes concerning these SFU problems ...still not known wh...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I hope the germans are aware of the fact that the big revenue in SN long haul comes for a very big part from business seats sold to africans (afri-belges) who will not buy tickets if departures move to germany, not even if they arrange shuttles...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Indeed, rumours have it that more and more longhauls will be moved to germany, and therefore also more and more SN staff will be based there, yet another obstacle for our belgians that live a comfortable life in the homeland with the family...and that is still the best solution ! When they decide no...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

How about costs ? If you make a comparision of total employees devided by number of acft in fleet then this number is very high at SN. Maybe it is not a very good comparision, but i wonder if profit can be made then.

Re: Brussels Airlines pilot shortage in 2019 ?

Let s hope so, i wish that our belgian pilots can continue their jobs in the homeland for many years to come, but i have my doubts, especially now with the germans controlling the wheel at SN. Everything depends on the next steps they will take with our small airline. I hope they do not only take th...

Brussels Airlines pilot shortage in 2019 ?

Trouble is coming up as B.A. seems to lose more and more pilots, especially the experienced long-haul pilots are bombarded with job offers from other airlines at much higher wages, and not only from far east companies... As our belgian company is not able to compete these more and more increasing te...

Re: Brussels Airlines OO-SFM to Ougadougou holding above Belgium

131.950 - no acars, at such close distance VHF voice is the most easy way of comm, even when transatlantic most pilots still prefer good old HF in stead of CPDLC wich is not reliable at all times. At longhaul flights, technical issues are discussed over satcom, most SN330 s have satcom telephone in ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Does somebody know for how long SFO and SFM can still remain ? The SFM seems to be the oldest 330 in the world, still flying. I heard that airbus does not have previous experiences with 330s exeeding this age. Rumours are that they soon want to recall the SFM in order to take it apart and use these ...
