Re: Air Belgium in 2020

On 1st February 2020, the official Belgian company registrar BCE / KBO has erased the official address of Aviation Investment Holding, Air Belgium's major shareholder ("erased": adresse radiée / doorgehaald adres). Their siège social / maatschappelijke zetel was: Ruelle Gare de Basse-Wavre 13/1, 13...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

It's simple really and should end all dicussions. The EU law is clear, all airlines not following this are in breach. Re-imbursment should be offered , without delay. Not hidden in thousand pages. Point. Testaankoop I believe is also on this https://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/headlines/society/2...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Let's see what happens - almost the full industry is trying to direct customers to a rebooking and/or voucher solution (some more extreme than others - like always). An increasing amount of EU governments is supporting the no/delayed refund position of their airline industry (e.g. Germany supportin...

but with a delay.
Which is also forbidden. First of all it is misleading to not point out clearly what the options are and how to receive a refund. Secondly, delaying compensation to whenever it suits the air carrier is NOT allowas, no matter what IATA says. The law has not changed.

General principle with all airlines now: no refunds, only vouchers.

Which is against your precious law that you always preach. Its NOT a general principle with all airlines btw.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Funny that is again, you cant resist the personal touch is it. How was the vinegar in your coffee this morning? I thought the advantage to the economy was the fact of belgian airlines providing 4 jobs per flight, where foreign airlines only provide one? On that matter, TUI's fleet is only a bit smal...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Unlike you however, I wasn't dancing from hapiness with the decisions SN took and takes. No you weren't to say the least, to the point you seem to be able to quote verbatim what was said years ago; a bit inconsistent with somebody who's not into it well beyond all rationale like you claim, don't yo...

The FPIC has just 8 teams to work on strategic companies in Belgium, 3 of which are currenlty working on aviation related companies if one is to believe the press reports: number one is B.air, two is TUI Airlines, the third one is ground services, so clearly the number of real strategic companies i...

Only one question : how much money has the belgian State received since the creation of SNBA, through employee earnings (annual/social taxes, consumer goods etc...) ?
Fair, but every company/employee in Belgium pays that.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I also don't understand why so many on this forum would like to see SN fail. If SN goes bankrupt, there will not be a new Belgian carrier! Many investors have already burnt their hand once, they will not do it a 2nd time. It's not a question about wanting to see it fail, it is a question off "shoul...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

@sean1982: if and when the governmen/Belfius decides to invest in SN, they'll certainly impose conditions like with the banks in 2008. The most important thing in the aviation sector is to keep the biggest airline of the second biggest employer of SN alive. If that succeeds, the government can stil...
