Abstract

B[e] supergiants show evidence for a non-spherical two-component stellar wind. The general appearance and the physical properties of the suggested disk-like configuration are discussed. The high mass-loss rates, the surprisingly large number and the location in the H-R diagram make these stars important for the understanding of the post-main-sequence evolution of massive stars.
