Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

^^ Obviously I'm talking about the scenario in which LH lets SN go. Then we would be in a situation like Alitalia, that was/is asking the government every year for extra money to keep it afloat. The only way this MIGHT work is to go back to bare minimums, maybe 3 long haul planes for Africa and 15-...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

:mrgreen: Very contributive My personal opinion is that we should let go SN and, eg, invest 1 billion in British Airways in exchange of a Brussels base with 15 to 20 aircraft once we start to come out of this crisis. That would be a better solution for employees, Bru Airport and the taxpayer. :shoc...

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: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

I have a lot of respect for those who create jobs in Belgium, even if it comes with foreign money. Absolutely none for narrow minded people we regularly read here. completly agree 737MAX It's very narrow minded to call other people who disagree, narrow minded. Tiens, you do that all the time?

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

How many of those on that list are not funded by an foreign investment group? Indeed. Just like in many other countries on this planet. Unfortunately some people live on other planets, blame everything that is not 200% belgian but these guys would also not invest 1€ in anything either. I have a lot...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Exactly. And some people who now predict how the bankruptcy of Brussels Airlines will be settled, are at job risk themselves. And? :roll: I only said that it's weird that the bankruptcy from just one Belgian airline is discussed in this forum: Brussels Airlines. Whilst actually, two other Belgian c...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Hi, Why would LH kill SN.. Corona will just give them the tools they need... Shrinking to the minimum needs to make money... There is money to be made in BRU but with less Planes,People, rules to follow... And government support. We need an airliner and with no other options... No DAT,Virgin anymor...

A friend says these are "maintenance" flights.
Which means everything but nothing.
I’d be curious to know why they’re doing this as well.
I think (dont quote me on it) it is to prevent them from having to be put in long term storage.

Re: [Coronavirus] State aid for (European) airlines ?

The problem with SN is that they chose growth over profitability... No? They didn't choose for growth instead of profitability. At the contrary: they had hoped that profit would follow their growth. ...which was mentioned here quite a few times. Indeed. You mentionned it and you repeated it. Becaus...

Re: [Coronavirus] State aid for (European) airlines ?

The problem with SN is that they chose growth over profitability to fight off the loco's in BRU (which partially worked) but put them on a path of unsustainable growth (which was mentioned here quite a few times). Its a strategy that only works when you have a lot of money in the pocket to start wi...

President Trump will make an announcement at 03:00 PM Washington time, I guess that will be 21:00 (UTC +1) No, 20:00 our time (UTC+1). US already has daylight saving time (EDT UTC-4). Well he partied with Bolsonaro in Mar-A-Lago this weekend, who is now confirmed to have corona :D Karma is a bitch.

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

British airways to lay off “up to 40%” of it’s staff short term and maybe longer term. Looking into faster retirement of older aircraft and parking newer ones.
