When I questioned BRU as a new destination when it was easily accessible from both PAR and AMS, I get some angry responses. Nonetheless I predict the route will not last long either. German-Singapore routes are stronger due to Star, but I am also not sure how SQ can sustain DUS that much when BER c...Jump to post
Operating from DUS to HKG with both AMS and FRA hubs to be reached in a 2h car ride from DUS and only 1h to take you from DUS downtown to FRA airport in a high speed train seems not very farsighted. With LH cutting down daily capacity to HKG from FRA by 200 seats in 2018 (going from A380 to A346) t...Jump to post

As to why SIN, My guess (Not based on facts I checked) would be:
- the possibility to operate flights under 5th freedom
- the geography of SIN
- the large O&D market of SIN
- the large premium market of SIN

I have always wondered why german registered aircraft require a German flag on the tail? Even a new airbus with a temporary german registration has to have a German flag.. I can't think of any other country that requires this.. yeah, i notice that too. they often have two flags when the painting is...Jump to post
Going to TLL for work in two weeks and I was surprised the only non/stop KL-coded flight AMS-TLL option is operated by BT. All AF/KL service from their CDG/AMS hubs are operated by BT. Other major European carriers do operate their own metal to the Baltics (LH, LO, BA to name few). Obviously the mai...Jump to post
Great numbers from my hometown airport! I guess the growth numbers for Greece and Spain have to do with the decline of tourism to Northern Africa (especially Egypt) and Turkey due to terrorism fears and political unrest in the region...? Also I wonder when growth at AMS will stagnate due to the cap ...Jump to post
I realize that you're asking about FRA and MUC but I wonder if Berlin is an opportunity for growth given the AirBerlin situation? At least for long haul - Berlin is a huge city and is relatively under served, internationally. Granted the airport situation is not good, but I wonder if it is mid to l...Jump to post
To think the airports situation in Milan is to blame for the demise of AZ is laughable. IMO bad management and unfortunately also just bad luck are to blame for the demise of AZ. Having said that, LIN is very regulated in terms of which destinations are served, both domestic and European flights. Lo...Jump to post
I'm not sure the presence of 75% of the member carriers is the right metric. For example, FRA has 12 of 14 oneworld carriers, but it's not really regarded as a major oneworld hub based on volume. I count three missing airlines: Qantas, Malaysia and Sri Lankan. It would still meet the 75% benchmark...Jump to post
That would be great for UA and RTM! I remember back in 2005 CO also considered RTM, but didn't start it in the end... It would be the first long haul flight for RTM, a city home to a lot of global HQs. With regard to their capacity at AMS, they can always upgrade to a 777 (or 744, but I realise that...Jump to post
why not just call it the CS300 instead of BD-500-1A11?

First of all, it's not LAN Airways, it's LATAM or used to be LAN. Second, that route map has a lot of errors. Totally fan made. I know that! Look the topic "IN THE PAST". It was old named formerly "LAN AIRWAYS". Can't you read the route map ? I asked about specific SYD-ZAL non s...Jump to post
Big problem however is that airlines are not really happy with LEY and practically no-one showed interest in moving their operations. That's not true, Ryanair has already expressed their interest in Lelystad. I think Transavia will as well, and maybe Wizzair. However it won't be a full move. Ryanai...Jump to post
OR will start AMS-PBM in July From what I read, OR will have a single weekly frequency on the AMS-PBM route and will codeshare on two of PY's three AMS-flights. How does this work with crew layovers?

What about Aeroflot?

Seems like they're going after the LCCs on (some already busy) European holiday destinations. It seems like a lot of capacity. Also, why not use HV instead?

I think BRU will have a nice niche market with its Africa flights and will remain to serve this market. Historical reasons play a huge part in this.

Terrific bombings You might want to change that typo I always thought of BRU as a nice airport. I guess it's main advantage, being well connected by railways to cities like Amsterdam, Paris and Cologne, is also its main disadvantage. AMS and CDG offer much better connections to the world than BRU d...Jump to post

Norway does not allow anyone but Norwegians to do security on the airports.

KLM doesn't serve any to my knowledge, but having a lowly pea soup or mashed potatoes with cabbage (the epitomes of Dutch cuisine) would be a bit lackluster for business class I suppose.
