Re: Repositioning of BRU operations to other airports after attacks

At LGG (and SN on a wider scale) I think they are very happy to have the "new" Terminal which can handle significantly more Passengers than the old one. Imagine this whole operation would have to be handled in the old terminal ... Only one thing makes me wonder: why are there only a few JAF flights ...

Re: 2015 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

It is possible to to connect via MUC to BKK but not with LH as they serve BKK ex FRA only ... MUC-BKK non-stop is served by TG only. So, usefulness will depend on whether TG will offer through fares via MUC. Timings do work out although with some waiting time in MUC both ways. LGG-MUC-BKK ~2.5hrs la...

Re: 2015 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

let's hope it will be fixed or it will remains unused by most people... It certainly will because listing in the CRS´s takes a while. And even if fares start to appear in CRS it does not mean that all fares will be availlable from the start. Usually the highest fares/booking classes are loaded firs...

Yep, I like Malaysia and in particular Air Asia.
They really offer good value for money - much better than Ryanair ...
I had also planned to fly Berjaya Air Dash-7 but Berjaya Air has stopped all scheduled ops.

Re: 2015 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

Still, I find those flights to MUC somewhat odd in that they will cannibalize the BRU flights to a certain degree. And ... at LGG there´s no "regional competitor" to be driven out of the market ... :roll: LGG´s local PTP market for MUC is way too small to justify these flights. The only real ratio I...
