Sabena Chairman, Fred Chaffart, has warned that the airline could face bankruptcy because of heavy losses after last week's terrorist attacks on the US.

Chaffart, speaking to journalists, said the airline was also at risk because it has failed to reach an agreement with the unions on a job-cutting plan.

"If we don't quickly reach a plan (to cut jobs and reduce the airline's routes), then Sabena is in great danger," Chaffart said.

Well, it is true that Sabena has lost a whole lot of money this year but I don't think that the attack of US airliners last week would affect much the situation at Sabena. Sabena has 5 or 6 daily scheduled flights transatlantic but most of its network is focussed in Europe and Africa. Sabena was already in bad shape before Sept 11' 2001 and had already planned the lay off of some 1600 employees. However, I still keep my fingers crossed for the future of Sabena. I do beleive that even with last week's tragedy in the United States, Sabena will survive.

Oui, c'est vrai que la Sabena a perdu beaucoup d'argent cette année mais je ne pense pas que l'attaque des avions de lignes americains n'affectera la situation de la Sabena. Sabena a 5 ou 6 vols quotidiens transatlantiques mais la plupart de son reseau est ciblé sur l'Europe et l'Afrique. La Sabena etait deja en danger finacierement avant le 11 Septembre 2001 et avait deja envisagé de licencier 1600 employés. Cependant, je croise toujours mes doigts pour l'avenir de la Sabena. Je crois sincerement que, malgré la catastrophe de la semaine passée aux Etats Unis, la Sabena survivra.

Ja, deze jaar heeft Sabena veel geld verloren maar ik denk niet dat, met de ongevallen van amerikaanse vliegtuigen, de situatie met Sabena slechter worden zalt. Sabena heeft, elke dag, 5 of 6 vluchten naar de Verinigde Staten maar de netwerk is meer op Europa and Africa. Sabena was al in een slechte situatie voor 11 september 2001 en 1600 mensen zouden werk verliezen. Ik kruis mijn vingers voor de toekomost van Sabena. Ik denk dat, ook met laatse week ongeval in de Verinigde Staten, Sabena zalt niet sterven.
