Re: News from Emirates (EK/UAE) 2018

I agree.. their service is not What it used to be.. on the other hand they connect the world, and that s true. Life in Dubai is not easy, very restricted (if one compares to life in Western Europe) and very expensive, especially if one has a family and children of school age.. I think that in the du...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

SN pays the worst wages of the industry I keep hearing this by the pilot-supporters. Does SN really pay a pilot less than Ryanair? Also could someone explain to me how it's possible that SN pays the lowest wages, operates at one of the cheapest large airports of Europe and yet at a time when fuel i...

Re: Disappointed by Turkish Business product and in general!!!

Thx for this report. But...nothing new for me! I no longer fly TK for a long time, for political reasons, state company of a fascist dictatorship and global absence of services. No after sales service especially! One point : not too bad food ! For me it's over ! Hope you are consistent though and d...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

It is suicidal to strike now at SN. The airline is loss making, its future is at stake. This time next year might be EUROWINGS .. and striking in the middle of a long week end when many people are on vacation? That is cruel, to say the least.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

I agree, and i have noticed that they do check in trolleys for Free.. the only problem is BRU. I try to never check in Matthijs flying into BRU as ine can wait up to 45 min for the ligdagen to appeal on the belt!! And Sometimes even longer.. rarely less than 30 min..

Re: VLM Airlines Regional (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

What I didn't understand, why didn't they take over the ANR - SIR route from PowdAir by flying ANR - ZRH - SIR. Are the pilot's not qualified enough to land at that airport? They would also solve the demand for the ZRH - SIR route. Next to that they would fly 4 airports within 1 - 2 hours from majo...

Re: VLM Airlines Regional (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

That would be a Swiss dimestic service. LX Will definitly block that if they consider VLM as competition to their BRU service.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

And those who were abandoned at 23:00 will most probably never want to fly SN again.. and imagine what they tell their friends and family when they finally do get home. Asking your staff to work until all stranded are helped and offer them compensation (if not money extra holidays) and maybe taxi to...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

the reason why they need to que is because they have to get the option between rebooking or compensation instead it's a Belgian law somehow.. asked it on a FB group and that's what someone responded .. that's why they can't rebook pax at once in case of cancellations and rerouting With extreme weat...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Very true! And the situation at BRU was clear to get worse as of 3 pm when it started snowing and flights got delayed.. They had ample time to call in extras or to work out an alternative workforce post closing hours. I was at BRU between 15:00 and 18:00 the situation was already desperate! And who...
