Great ! I'm visiting relatives in Miami next year. So far, however, Aer Lingus seems to be cheaper than tuifly, although there's a stopover in Dublin.
Small win: You get to do US immigration in Dublin, and land in Miami as a "domestic" flight.

A special topic has been created to discuss this decision and its consequences:

I read the article on "Budapest secures boost with Shanghai airlines" ... daily flights to Shanghai. On the other hand BRU the airport which serves a tourist city and an important political capital: zero flight! Let's look for the mistake!

Some countries in East of Europe, have a significant diaspora, from some Asian countries, mainly from China or Vietnam

I remmember, when i worked on CSA flights at CDG, there were lots of Vientamese arriving from Hanoi or Hô Chi Minh-Ville, with AF or Vietnam Airlines , and then they had a connecting to Prague, with CSA.

"Last year,a total of 256,000 Chinese tourists visited Hungary, a 11.06 percent increase year-on-year," said Cui Ke, director of China National Tourist Office, Budapest.

According to Cui, in the same period, a total of 23,600 Hungarian tourists visited China, up 4.89 percent year-on-year.

East Europe is really booming. BUD bcs of LOT, LOT opened their first foreign basis there.

LOT Polish Airlines is flying from WAW to a nice number of destinations in The States. This bcs a huge Polish community is living in Chicago.

Besides this, they have a great number of Asian destinations like Singapore, Seoul, Beijing, Colombia, Delhi, Tokio. And they have currently around 15 B787. More of them will follow in 2020.

You have indeed those diaspora in those countries and the fact that they attract really a lot of foreign companies. Also a lot of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian people are working in Poland bcs the wages and conditions are much better then in their own country.

In Radom, many kms from WAW, they will start the new mega airport.

Let's say that our politicians are sleeping and only thinking about their functions. They are not serving the country. Everything takes too long here. Metro, bus, train takes years of talking before they decide to have it more at BRU. The new A Pier West is taking years bcs of burocracy. And many other examples spread over the whole country.
In The Netherlands too. They speak, negotiate, they decide and they act. This week regarding the train station and next year about the metro. We even can't have a very simple Trambus. Delayed bcs of politics
So frustrating to work bcs you all the time depend of hundreds of others who are not in aviation but as a matter of fact who are deciding about your future

East Europe will be much more developed, more modern and a stiff competitor for the West.

It was a mistake to shelve this project a couple of years ago. Growth was slowing down, true. But you know things take time in Belgium.

Atlantis it is off topic but important to tell it.

Radom Airport is not going to be the Polish mega Airport. Radom is like Lelystad for Amsterdam.

The Mega Airport is 40km far from Warsaw.

Hi TLspotting,

Radom Airport itself not, what I referred to is that the new mega airport will be close to Radom. But be sure that Radom Airport will be closed

This is completely off-topic, but the new Solidarity Transport Hub or Central Port of Communication will be 40km west of Warsaw in the direction of Lodz. It is not anywhere close to Radom, which is south of Warsaw.

If I’m not mistaken, SN was supposed to replace AC on the BRU-YUL route?

BRU-YUL seem to be operated by SN *and* AC next summer?

BRU-YYZ by AC only (as announced before).

San Francisco and Singapore are off the table for next summer season?

Maybe UA will publish something next spring... either SFO or a second EWR flight as the 787-10 is a success with full flights since it was introduced and only a downgrade to 777 and not the usual 767-400 we saw the pas years

Primera Air was going to launch evening flights in 2019. It really shows the opportunity but of course, Primera Air went down, by opening 3 or 4 bases at a time.

In any case I think that if something is on the table it will not be the work of the said national carrier
