For many passengers this will be the "last drop": they will avoid Brussels in the future and fly from other airports. Well done, unions! We don't need terrorists to destroy our economy, we do it ourselves!

Zum kotzen!

I'm not blaming the government, but I'm expecting Jacqueline Galant to do something (not to say something) right now.

What's your point? Is this the middle-ages where we're going to pillory someone ?
I agree starting a strike in these circumstances is hideous, but singling out one indivual is as well.
I urge the moderators to act upon this !

She is the president from that trade union killing the airport. Therefore, it's a relevant post.

I'm not out to pillory someone at all, just pointing out who is responsible for these sickening actions. She is the chairwoman, so it's her own choice to be a public figure and to be seen as main figure of the GBATC. Therefore it's fair game to point out who she is.

So, jail her, burn her car ?
Come on, is it about one person, are you sure you are really aware on what's going on so that you can blame her on a public place ?

Pointing out is one thing, but the tone of your post and the mentioning of someones personal facebook page has very little or no news value and smells of pillory....

It's just one person who by her own choice is the main representative of the BGATC. And yes I'm aware that the BGATC called upon employees to not turn up for work. Of course I don't wish her any harm, I didn't imply that in any way either.

It has little news value but it does make it possible for people working at BRU who might lose their job because of her actions to make that known to her in a polite way. Being chairwoman doesn't only involve the likable parts of representing your union.

Just like we have the right to see the faces of the terrorists who bombed the airport, we have the right to see the faces of the ones causing horrible damage to the airport with these scandalous actions right now.

What is worse here? Is it (indirectly) inviting some luchtzak-members to send her a Facebook message that she won't like but that she can delete after one second, or is ot to cause severe damage to airlines, to airports and to passengers?

Like I said before: this strike is lijkenpikkerij. Disguisting vulture behaviour.

Does anyone know when ATC staff will have recovered from the news they will have to wait until they're 58 before they can retire? I read that the wildcat strike will end at 10.15 tonight. Is this correct? I am flying tomorrow morning, so any info would be much appreciated.

Shame on her and on those uncivil ATC controllers! Not only do they have no respect for others, they also have no respect for themselves!

The unions are killing this country!

“This action by air traffic controllers is a kick in the teeth for all the airline and airport staff who have worked so hard to reconnect Brussels to the world after the appalling terrorist attack just three weeks ago. It is the height of irresponsibility to cut a vital service and doing so without warning can only be seen as malicious.

If we cannot count on simple human decency from such highly-compensated professionals then it’s time for governments to find ways to guarantee the availability of air traffic control services,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO.


Couldn't say it better, kick these idiots out and hire some competent people that are willing to perform. More than enough out there.

The Belgian government won't do anything against this scandal: Alexander De Croo (VLD) told VTM he "regrets" the strike.
