Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

If you look at this from this side, and yesterday also during the presentation, it is visible that the Belgian flag is up side down, red/yellow/black. I know why, bcs it works like a mirror, but in fact it is absolutely not correct This is ABSOLUTELY correct! The way Air Belgium paints it is absolu...

Honestly? Seriously?
Whilst customers are waiting, more than a year, to get their money back, their airline is spending money on rebranding for the 4th or 5th time... You couldn’t make it up, could you?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

Pilot are trained to fly OR a330, OR a320's. You cannot just swap them. For cabin crew, we are all trained on a320 but not everyone fly a330. Beside the certification there are more complex mater in term of rostering. If a crew was suppose to fly in the morning, you can't simply reroster them in th...

Re: booked a flight, not sure if I will arrive back home

Did you buy the trip as one ticket or separate ones?
I don’t see FR offering tickets from AMM to CRL, it looks like you bought two separate tickets hence why they only have to reroute/refund the AMM-BLQ leg.

A rights issue happened yesterday, every share had one right detached, every right plus 3,85€ buys you a new share. More shares means each share is worth less money.

Re: PSG star team lands at Ostend-Bruges Airport for tonight’s game against Club Brugge, but was this charter necessary?

It’s exactly these kind of flights which give aviation a bad image. Boarding 30 min, flight 45 minutes, get into the bus 30 minutes, bus trip to the hotel 30 min in total 2h15 minutes to avoid a bus trip of 3h30 minutes. It’s nothing else than exaggerating to impress and self-worship. These flights,...

Certainly possible, maybe likely by absolutely NOT more than likely.
There are several other abnormalities which require a descent.

If they succeed to do so the EU has no advantage anymore! I hope it will not be possible or the UK will win on all battles! If ITA, Alitalia or whatever they are called these days think they can make money on the route the exemption will, probably, be granted and British airlines will automatically...

Brussels Airlines flight #SN379 to Douala (Airbus A330-300 reg. OO-SFF) made a U-turn in the neighbourhood of Metz and came back at low altitude to Brussels Airport where it landed without holding, which seems to indicate an urgent technical problem. Why would the “no holding” imply an urgent techn...

Brussels Airlines sees a strong increase in the number of incoming bookings. Ever since the lifting of the travel ban for Belgians on 19 April, the airline has noticed a positive trend. However, the past few weeks the increase in bookings grows even stronger. Good to hear! Let’s hope they can final...

Maybe the reason is simple: that fans club had booked OOSNA quite some time in advance and offered SN a better deal in order to fly the "iconic" Red Devils plane.
Piet Erauw, team manager of the Red Devils, confirmed in an interview that extra comfort was the only reason.
