Re: Ryanair cancels 2,100 flights in Sep-Oct 2017, and 18,000 more in Nov 2017-Mar 2018

Press reports about today's court case in Charleroi: Ryanair promised to pay the indemnity, but finally they didn't. Hence the court case continues: "...La compagnie aérienne a finalement donné son accord pour indemniser les passagers, mais cela n'a pas été suivi d'effet..." http://www.dhnet.be/regi...

The occurrence was rated a serious incident and is being investigated by the BEIAA..." Yeah, like the local newspaper which pu...

Re: Trivia 2018 (miscellaneous news)

Back in 1935, a then 7-year old Dutch boy has won a scenic flight Amsterdam-Amsterdam in a KLM competition. However, he never claimed his price then. The man turned 90 this week. As a surprise, his 7-year old grand-grandson (and KLM) arranged that scenic flight. In PH-PBA, a 1944 DC-3: https://www.y...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Hope that LH decides that Sukhoi is definitely a joke of bad taste! That conclusion/decision has already been taken weeeeks ago. I do hope SN keeps them a bit longer. I'm due to fly on one from Brussels to Basel later this year. Should be a new manufacturer to me :) I only flew twice on it, but it'...
