Miles and More

Hi,

I try to claim miles for my children and when I try to fill in the form online... one cannot select Brussels as an origin nor destination.

Has anybody else had the same experience?

Re: Air Belgium in 2021

Maybe another destination from BRU that could be profitable for Air Belgium is Cape Town. Especially during the winter months there's a lot of Belgians, (especially from the North) flying form BRU to CPT via AMS, FRA, LHR, IST, DXB, DOH and ADD.

Re: Air Belgium in 2021

What make you say that CRL is a "extremely low-cost" airport? Yes the cost structure is lower tjan BRU as it's a regional airport like LIL, OST, EIN, or LGG. But from the service it's providing, what make of it a, as you call "extremely low-cost airport" you have everything you ...

CRL is a (succesful!) economic project from the Walloon government, eating away from BRU's cake.

Would it still be a succes if the annual subisides / market distortion wouldn't be there?

Re: Monday morning smile

Onboard catering with KLM is going to change: no longer "chicken, beef or pasta?", but "pasta, pesto or quinoa?" Reason: KLM says veggie is more sunstainable then meat. https://www.telegraaf.nl/financieel/1132368295/klm-vergroent-vlees-verdwijnt-van-vliegtuigmenu And cheaper...

Re: OO-SGC: A new lease of life

Why did Sabena never buy the Combi's to operate into Africa? KL's Combi's offered more or less the same pax capacity as SN's A330's did/do but with more valuable cargo space. They were combi's... Google "Sabena 747 seatmap"... I believe Sabena even did the conversion of the 747-100's them...

Quite a bit too enthousiastic, I think...

Well at least 5:

2 747-100
1 747-200 (on lease from AF)
2 747-300

Maybe some others for short periods during maintenance of there own fleet?

Well, it landed kind of like a plane, so it's aviation, isn't it?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

If the Belgian state wants a seat on the board of Brussels Airlines and 25% of the shares +1 (in order to have a blocking minority), it must be a capital injection rather than a loan. You value the company at 3€ (probably even negative for the moment), raise the capital with 1€ and you get 25% of t...
