Re: The CityJet Sukhoi SSJ100-95 saga is hurting Brussels Airlines

I can understand that the company is looking for a more reliable plane on the lower end of aircraft sizes. On the other hand, the change from the SSJ to CRJ will be dreadful for passengers: crampy cabin, no space for hand luggage, no boarding via jetbridge... because apart from the somewhat higher ...

Re: Ryanair in 2018

Does that mean they’ll pay their taxes in Belgium, instead of Ireland? :? Social security is paid in Belgium, income tax as per double taxation agreement between Ireland and the country of residence of the employee. That's how it works now, yes.Would a Ryanair employee be able to benefit from the b...

If a new ground handler would step in and have a need to take over ex-Aviapartner staff, they may not necessarily feel obliged to take over those Aviapartner individuals that played a key role in this strike.
I certainly hope so

Re: 25-31/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

I did defend the strike at Ryanair strongly firstly, secondly I said I support the right to strike but only if the rules are followed, which would have allowed the customers of aviapartner to at least come up with a plan B. Thirdly, you can drop the personal insults

Re: 25-31/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

Strange that some people here seem to think they know me better than I do. You are very much mistaken. I Just have absolutely no sympathy for people that go on strike for a bonus they were promised to pay and for new equipment when their company does not have the financial means to cover that. No, t...

Re: 25-26-27-28-29/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

Sure I accept this this are numbers you can't discuss them but that's not the problem of the employees. Legacies from the past are the problem from all people working there . But even when I repeat that 10 times, you won't accept it. Sure, people are going through a difficult time there, with heavy...

Re: 25-26-27/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

No it’s not. It’s not Brussels airport that needs to do anything about workers that pay for aviapartner. Aviapartner needs to negotiate a contract which allows them to do their business properly. That’s not Brussels airport’s responsibility.

Re: 25-26-27/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

As a pilot i land quite often in BRU and my company is using aviapartner as well. We see so many times, when on blocks even, we really have to wait for them to show up to take care of everything, causing delays ofcourse. There is simply a lack of staff (like swissport as well) and they really have ...

Re: 25-26/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

It looks like Aviaparner staff is also on strike at LGG/Liège ! Correct. “In support of their BRU colleagues” :roll: Correct me if I'm wrong. But from what I understood from VRT news is that the Aviapartner in LGG is refusing to handle the diverted planes from TUIfly that would normally leave from ...

There is really no justification not to follow the rules regarding strikes. Wildcat strikers should be prosecuted.

The Ryanair crew members that staged the sleeping-on-the-floor picture have been summoned to Dublin.
Will they also sleep on the floor in Dublin Airport or did the airline book them in a decent hotel?
up and down the same day, but un-employed on the way back, that's my guess

Re: Ryanair in 2018

That’s not how crewing/operations work. Legally they can't do that as they wouldn't be covered by insurance in the first place, secondly they wouldn't know what their sign off time and sign on time would be to comply with EASA's FTL scheme.

Well it’s not fake is it? They still had to spend tbe night in a room with no facilities ... FR doesn’t even try and contest the fact they didn’t provide the accommodation they legally needed to! This tweet makes it even worse!
