How on earth could he be succesfull with such routes??
I am not commenting on his effort on trying to create a new airline in Belgium, but if even carriers like Air-France and BA have difficulties filling their LAX and SFO flights??
How will Freddy fill them from Brussels?

Will the sun finally shine in the cloudy sky of Belgium?

Good Luck, VG Airlines

I suspect we'll probably find that VG will be operating the long haul services to Africa and elsewhere for DAT. DAT can then concentrate on its area of speciality, regional operations; and feeding into VG's long haul network. I also understand that they will be doing charters for at least one Dutch tour operator.

VG Airlines sounds good:
A new Belgian airline, new (and very cool) colorscheme, money (very importent  Big grin),...

But I misses one thing: PROFITABLE DESTINATIONS!

Why are some European airlines reducing the number of flights to America? Even Sabena reduced it routes to America (before they went bankrupt).

I don't think those routes will be profitable at this moment (may be in a year or something).

Still I would to wish VG Airlines all the best Big grin
