Hey marketing department of Brussels Airlines, take note:

As the 'African specialist', SN should have done this. Already 1,4 million views. Priceless. This is how you take care of your brand.

They certainly have efficient administration at OS, all passengers have been reimbursed for canceled flights and therefore, they can party... it's all rolling! SN...nobody's there !

Ok, time for a "stupid question".

From what I have heard is that Austrian is not doing so well. As a "partner airline" to LH and SN, why do they not restructure certain routes?

E.g. : SN is a player in Africa and the idea is, to the public at least, to let SN grow in Africa.

Then why the hell is there a flight done by Austrian from Vienna to Cape Town? Why is this not given to SN? I do know that there are not a lot of Austrians taking that flight; I used to live near Cape Town and took that flight regularly. ( when both flights were still red-eye's )

These were all people who had connecting flights afterwards...

CPT can easily be reached with an A330 as well, so I don't get the entire strategy here...

Brussels Airlines operated mainly VFR (visit friend and relative) routes in Africa. Cap Town is more a leisure destination and doesn't fit in the strategy. Also the Brussels Airlines's strategy is to operate longhaul destination with aircraft doing the rotation within 24h, wich is not possible with CPT.

The problem with Brussels Airlines is the lake of ambition in this company making that all other airlines takes their part of the cake. In Carsten Sprohr head, there are only three airlines, Lufthansa, Swiss and Eurowings.

Have flown sabena, delta, swissair ,thomas cook and Mid East VIP as cabin crew
LH group can't compete on costs with low fare carriers (mainly on european sectors); so they keep cutting service but still pretend to be in the top league
Reckoning will come...you can't keep pretending and they have already announced that as from springtime it will be buy on board for everyone in LH group
As you see barely empty premium cabins at this time, I wonder what will replace the bread and butter business pax €€€€ of the past; due to corona all tickets are by need of income totally flexible
The basic business model of our major carriers has changed forever and this will not help financial recovery
Brussels airlines promotes "boutique hotel experience" in C class..fly them to TLV in business and you will see what a "crazy boutique" it is..

Being focused on Cabin Crew wellbeing, I Just hope the airline world doesn't become a hell to be lived instead of a passion for service that can not be fulfilled anymore xxx
