I'm quite surprised about the media coverage... I mean as headline news, Air Belgium is not mentioned. I understand there are more relevant news but still, we have to look carefully to see an article about it on several news' websites. Was covered by RTBF in the midday TV news ! Well, let's hope to...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

From what I heard regarding seat selection, they are "unable" to assign seats ahead of time. I guess the seats will be randomly given during check-in. They'll just make sure to assign seats for passengers under the same reservation next to each other. I just wonder if the check-in agents ...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

I wonder if the delay is done on purpose to maintain attention on their owned medias or because they really struggle to operate an extra rehearsal flight.
