Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Of course the headlines are focused on the Eurowings integration being called off, but at the same time a 'turn around plan' has been announced for Q3. This timing is very likely a tactical move to avoid industrial action during the Summer season, in which case I'm sure the plan won't be to the lik...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Would this wise decision not be partly due to the efforts and good work of the German CEO Christina Foerster? After a year and a half, she probably determined that integration was not the best solution for Brussels Airlines and Eurowings.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If there were now 3 to 5 large Belgian investors who put 200 million on the table to buy back Brussels Airlines from Lufthansa, I think CS would soon sell his "lossmaking" subsidiary.

What do you think?

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

That's wrong if the 'drop' itself wasn't a valid reason to strike. Striking as atco because you can't all be informed of something in one meeting isn't a valid reason. It's behavior of spoiled and entitled employees you won't see anywhere else. I refer to my earlier post The fine line you're talkin...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

There have been rumors that ATCOs and unions asked additional fees. Amounts from 40,000 to 60,000 euros extra are mentioned. Is that correct, Phoenixx? I laughed a bit. We have been refusing any and all financial benefits because that has always where we lost all sympathy and honestly money can not...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

They will have to renegotiate and give the spoiled workers what they want like always because there is NO CHOICE. That’s why they feel so strong and dare to put a country upside down! There is no possibility to replace them unless you stop the traffic for two years! (Time needed to train new motiva...

Phoenixx, thanks for your comprehensive answer. All understanding that you also have to work. ;) But I also can continue to try and put everything in another perspective, counter false information, and so on. I wish you and your colleagues a good outcome of the negotiations. And that the customer/pa...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Has anyone noticed that the Belgian airspace remains open for three consecutive nights. An extra reimbursement for those who are working on Sunday and public holiday (Easter)?

I also notice that it is very quiet at the moment with our friends atco's on this forum.

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Phoenixx and SR20, one more question: It appears that last week there was a proposal on the table from the social mediator where management agreed to introduce a 32-hour working week instead of the current 35-hour week. But I heard that the trade unions have rejected this because management only wa...
