Passenger is probably right when he says that BRU's A.F. has already a plan up his sleeve.
Knowing how A.F. has been behaving so far, he must be in a "wait and see mode", hoping not to have to intervene at the expense of his shareholders. To me it is quite obvious that the man only thinks of his shareholders (that's indeed his job). In spite of his never fading smile, he shows no empathy for anyone else but his shareholders and himself and will only act if he has a knife to his throat. Just like CS, he must be an ultra-neo-liberal who has not perhaps realized, yet, that a major change is in progress which might very well spell the end of this ultra or neo-liberal era. (some more "food" for controversy).
AF is a typical CEO coming from audit companies like KPMG, PWC, etc.
Just figures and not thinking further than his next bonus.
Only the shareholders are happy, certainly the foreign ones.
PAX do not like this expensive, unattractive airport. In all the ratings (Skytrax etc) BRU is performing poorly, always at the end of the list . Poor old-fashioned infrastructure with some parts looking communist-style (80's). Poor services (the best joke is the Pax control, poor maintenance (baggage belts), strikes by subcontractors like baggage handlers who are all at the brink of bankcrupcy because of the criminal contracts BRU makes them swallow. Waiting 45 minutes or more for your baggage is 'normal' at BRU.
The extremely low
Transfer PAX numbers show that BRU is NOT attractive for foreign PAX.
AMS, VIE ar doing a lot better.
Subcontractors and their personnel very unhappy and frustrated,
Federal police striking (among other things because poor facilities),
Security personnel doing actions on busy days…
The CEO has a baby face with a fake smile.
BAC is actually responsible for making the whole BRU organisation work smoothly.
Like a Orchestra-conductor or director, or like a dj, they are responsible to avoid any false note.
AF has been very poor at it.
I have known more CEO's with auditors background. Indeed ultra-neo-liberals who care only about their bonus and about the shareholders. Usually this type of CEO's are surrounded by a team of weak managers, who just says yes and lick their …
As I said many times before, it will take many years before BRU will reach 30 mio PAX .
Let us hope this Coronacrisis will open the eyes of some people in the Government.
