On Across The Pond this week we talk to Frenchez Pietersz from aviationplatform.com. about airline news from the Benelux countries of Europe, that's Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. The programme can be found at: http://www.airplanegeeks.com/2012/04/17/episode-193-just-the-geeks/
With so much to cover we focused on Belgium and Holland and how the KLM Air France merger is
developing and what Lufthansa is doing to challenge them.

Aviation Platform is a great website for sharing aviation knowledge within the sector.
The aim is to get those in aviation to contribute and participate on topics like technological developments, current aviation issue’s or write an IDEA to inspire others. (An IDEA is an abbreviation for Innovation, Design, and Engineering in Aviation).
Frenchez is working with a supporting team of eight people, to keep the site running. They are planning a number of online conference / brainstorming sessions on specific aviation issues, via different social media, which will be called the Aviation Think Tank Friday (ATTF). So watch out for these!
Check them out, its an interesting concept and site. But dont forget to listen in to what Frenchez has to say in our first Benelux review.
