Re: The CityJet Sukhoi SSJ100-95 saga is hurting Brussels Airlines

EI-FWD is the SSJ which had an incident upon landing on June 20th. I guess it’s still not fixed.

Re: Flight Data Failure at Belgocontrol -> Clear The Sky

Again, I rest my case. For those in the know, more than a few mistakes are visible in your last post, same as the previous posts. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: there's truth in it, of course. But there's more to it than just the one sided picture you paint. I'll leave it at that. FYI: ...

Re: Flight Data Failure at Belgocontrol -> Clear The Sky

I wanted to write a very long post about all of this, but honestly, I can't be arsed to do so. mvg: I rest my case, you don't seem to have a clue about what the job of an ATCO actually entails. Your stance on the breaks during shifts only confirms that, and shows you haven't done your homework with ...

Judging by your reply, it seems obvious you haven't a clue as to what's actually going on behind the gates in Steenokkerzeel.

Re: Boeing 747-8 news

I don't think the initial contract was for one 747, that wouldn't really make sense. Granted, the quote could be read that way, but only having a single plane doesn't make sense if you look at the way they operate the current VC-25s. Not having a back-up aircraft would not be an option. And you can'...

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2018

The topic is indeed about TUI Belgium, but keeping a bit of perspective in reference to other airlines doesn’t hurt. Keep in mind, nobody is going to be bothered to report about all the flights that went off without a hitch. When a flight is cancelled/delayed/rerouted/diverted, that’s when info abou...

Re: BRU 12/07/2018

If factbase (https://factba.se/topic/calendar) is correct, departure forensen at 1145z in BRU. That would be 40 minutes ago. AF1 is currently still parked on the cargo apron at BRU... Summertime in Belgium, so it would have been 1345 local. Apparently it was a little later than that, but not by much.

Re: LGG 09/07/2018

Seems to be 04R.
The runways have changed names sometime last year due to the drift of the magnetic north, so they're now 22L/R and 04L/R.
And by the way, very nice pictures (as always) wapo! Really nice lighting!

Re: 2018 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

They would know beforehand whether or not they have a slot at AMS, so filing for AMS and diverting to LGG is not really logical. However, filing for LGG and “diverting” to AMS would work, since I don’t think they’re allowed to refuse a diversion except for very good reasons. However, I don’t think t...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

Nope, not at all the reason.
Rehearsal for the defilé of July 21st is the actual reason.
There’s no reason to put aircraft in the holding in the middle of the day without single aircraft on final just because of a certain runway configuration.

As to your first paragraph: Correct, you didn't claim that, I edited my post to show a more correct statement. To the second: Except it's not "only relevant for statistics". Just because no passengers were inconvenienced, doesn't mean there can't be more to this. If they were to consistently file fl...

Re: 2018 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

That doesn’t really say anything. The claim was they diverted in flight, which suggests the flight plan was to EBLG, but a diversion initiated to EHAM. As I have often said before, FR24 does not have acces to a flightplan database, it uses flight history to come up with a route pairing. In your exam...

Re: 2018 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

Was that flight actually planned for LGG (as in, it showed up with an actual flight plan going to LGG), or was it planned for AMS, but FR24 assumed it was headed for LGG?
