Can someone provide the link to the booking page. I suppose its a different booking page than the "my booking" on the homepage?
You should have received an email with the link (an individual link for each passenger).

Possibly in the spambox.

Aviation24.be would like to meet all its members participating in the 11:00 flight (KF340 OO-ABA).

Will be present: Ivan ("Apuneger"), Bram ("Bottie"), Maarten ("Quixoticguide") and myself André ("sn26567").

Please identify yourself to one of the members of the team. We might either have a coffee before the flight or a beer after the flight. A great opportunity to meet our avgeek community.

I suppose the rehearsal flights will be done by OO-ABB in that case.
EDIT: same for me, unable to change seats but it seems they try to fill the window seats first and then work towards the middle.
Was assigned a window seat as well, so I didn't have to change - especially as it is slightly behind the wings so there is a possibility of getting some nice wingview pics as well...

It would be a pleasure to meet you guys! I plan to be there fairly early. Watch out for a blue sports jacket with a Belgian Air Force pin on the breast pocket. Where do you want to meet in the morning?
Best regards,

Air Belgium is flying with their A340 (OO-ABA) for Surinam Airways again today. ETD: 03:15 from Schiphol.
https://www.dagonline.nl/suriname/slm-v ... t-toestel/
UPDATE:
Flight is delayed to 16:45.
ETD from AMS : 03:15 is 15:15.
Ferry flight to AMS is PY3004, flight to Surinam is PY993.
When the flight info on Schiphol.nl is correct, OO-ABA will return from Paramaribo without loosing time there for crew rest. Scheduled arrival at AMS is Saturday, 13h07 local (ETA 12h20 local).

False information, even at this moment (*) : both FR24 and Planefinder.net show that OO-ABA is still on the ground at Paramaribo.

(*) Schiphol.nl also mentions "We don’t know all details for this flight yet. Check back soon". But with so much practical information on the screen, like "delayed 13h07", many people will assume that the aircraft is enroute.

Today we’re taking 257 lucky passengers on a 3-hour flight over Europe. They will experience first-hand what it will be like to fly with Air Belgium to Hong Kong. Ready for take-off! #SimplyFlyAway

Its amazing to me that they've found 500 paying volunteers for these flights. It shows that Belgium has a passion for aviation. Well done.

I look forward to reading the TR's in the appropriate forum.

But no compassion for their customers !
