And that's exactly what @tolipanebas is NOT doing any longer: talk the talk.If you talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk
That the rudeness is not evident to all might of course be expected.

I can make TYO work out for them and even MNL by next spring.
This is extremely rude. He is gone quiet (sic!) indeed, more's the pity, but how can you tell why? Perhaps he's very sick? Perhaps found other priorities than posting here? Perhaps switched career and no more concerned with commercial air transport?he’s gone very quite since it turned out ( ... )
Vueling and easyJet reduced their ops at BRU significantly, Ryanair doesn’t expand and Brussels Airlines is struggling to survive. The climate doesn’t look that healthy to me.
No healthy climate for Brussels Airport? The August 2018 figures contradict that:Poiu wrote: ↑22 Sep 2018, 19:55Vueling and easyJet reduced their ops at BRU significantly, Ryanair doesn’t expand and Brussels Airlines is struggling to survive. The climate doesn’t look that healthy to me.
If I remember well, those aircraft that were going to run out of fuel when they had to divert were not MAX or neo, but A319LR.
Actually, I read on airliner world forum that Cathay isn't doing well on their Brussels route. Is that true? maybe Brussels Hong Kong just doesn't work. There's quite a few destinations already served out of Belgium.Passenger wrote: ↑22 Sep 2018, 20:06No healthy climate for Brussels Airport?

Cathay's HKG-LHR-HKG is the seventh best route worldwide, turnover figure (source: OAG). So maybe BRU is weak, compared to that LHR result. But now, with the CRL-competition gone, things will improve for CX.
We need to look at what has been said and conclude that it's challenging to start an airline.Amavro wrote:You should start an airline. You seems to know the job.

It never ceases to amaze me how "managers" hope to run yield management from day 1 on routes without feeding and with heavy competition, only to price themselves out of the market. So much for being a "disruptor".
Scarce return tickets at 450 EUR return, but mostly at over 500 EUR return
In the meanwhile CX is at 570 EUR return from BRU while BA is below 500 EUR via LHR. AB can't promote themselves like this.
A word of advice: start selling at max. 299 EUR return in Y, 999 EUR return in C.
If I were the CEO,
If they continue like this, they won't last. It looks like they don't know what they're doing.
I hoped for them to succeed but like this they don't stand a chance.
Furthermore, the CX's prices are not around 570. The average price is higher. For BA, what a joke. Randomly, i got 885€ (Tue 10/07 - Sun 15/07). I request a screen for a price below 500..
I’m quite convinced the need in widebody/long haul ACMI is high. Even in winter time. But I hardly see « Air Belgium » as an ACMI only airline, it would need a more neutral name/paint scheme.

Has nothing to do with "their dreamliners have problems again" like you mention.
with TUI you never now on which plane you'll be , it can be anything nowadays but there it's 'unnoticed' as it's a long term lease like the Smartlynx and Orange2fly airbusses, thus for the dreamliners it's frequently a different wetlease like Wamos, Privilege and so on ... doesn't the TUI group have spare dreamliners which can be shifted throughout to backup these maintenance slots ? or isn't that the purpose for rebranding all the airliners and operate as one ?JamesD wrote: ↑24 Sep 2018, 09:20Has nothing to do with "their dreamliners have problems again" like you mention.
Aircrafts need to have longer maintenance slots from time to time and this particular
one has been scheduled for this week since a long time.
If one of their B737's goes out of rotation for a couple of days due to scheduled maintenance
nobody notices since there are "usually" enough of them to fill the gap. However, if you only
have 2 longhaul aircraft in your fleet, this doesn't go unnoticed
