Re: VLM Airlines taken over by management, buys SSJ100 aircraft

I hope for them that they have made a thorough market study to avoid a catastrophic issue like their flights from Liège. Or better, I hope that they ask themselves, why can we [VLM] make FDH work whilst it was the nail in the coffin for InterSky? InterSky couldn't operate FDH - DUS profitable and H...

Re: TAP Portugal has been sold

Wow, Portugal may re-nationalise TAP because of a socialist party promise? LISBON, Portugal (AP) — A battle is brewing between Portugal's new government and the consortium that won the privatization of the country's national airline, with the government insisting on bringing the flag carrier back u...

Re: Cancelled services and discontinued routes in 2016

2. KLM proudly announced a new route to Salt Lake City. They only forgot to tell that the route to Dallas-Fort Worth would be discontinued at the same time. However, they did mention the suspension of Cologne in their press release (after spending almost the entire release on the 5 new European des...

Re: Jet Airways out of Brussels?

Grant more traffic rights to the ME3? That's the last thing to do. OK, it would (maybe) compensate the departure of Jet Airways, but in favour of companies having low costs and high subsidies which will compete with European companies playing the game according to the rules. Don't they already have...

Re: Jet Airways out of Brussels?

Still, I don't understand that the 9W operation at BRU, with their 4 daily flights always well filled, was not profitable...or was it brainwashing and the decision to move was taken for other (political, alliances...) reasons. You do know that 2.5 years ago EY already mentioned this? 9W does what E...

Re: European aviation blacklist: update December 2015

It looks like Thai airlines narrowly escaped the blacklist, after a downgrade in the US. Becoming CAT II says nothing about the EU list.There are many FAA categoty II countries which aren't on the EU list (i.e. Bangladesh and Ghana). Moreover, the EU list allows airlines to be allowed despite the c...

Re: SN stops BRU<->RIX route from 11 november 2016

I just received official confirmation from Brussels Airlines that they will stop flying SN2367 BRU->RIX and SN2368 RIX->BRU from 20160111. What a pity removals from the flight schedule are always happening so silently! Since I fly this route (very) regularly, I can only hope that FR increases its f...

Re: Jet Airways out of Brussels?

That seems so. Just today the KLM CEO mentioned the start of cooperation with 9W (without any specifics, but I don't see what that could mean other than 9W flying to AMS): http://www.parool.nl/parool/nl/30/ECONOMIE/article/detail/4203720/2015/12/08/KLM-wil-met-Europese-groeispurt-Nederlanders-terug...

Probably more than a rumour as I can't book the flight anymore anywhere as of December 1st. Also no timetables given on the BMI Regional website. Too bad airlines are no...

Re: Jet Airways out of Brussels?

I suppose 9W continues selling flights to/from BRU as usual until the moment the end of the BRU hub will be officially announced to the public (probably to avoid a drop in bookings :?: ). Which is what every airline does....nothing special. Indeed. It's a bit unfair by 9W/EY, as they already know a...
