In the midst of a pandemic, Avianca hosts in-flight concert

Passengers on today’s domestic flight AV8565 between Medellin and Bogota, Colombia sure had an unforgettable trip thanks to a live and in-flight concert by the Medellín Philharmonic Orchestra (Orquesta Filarmónica de Medellín).

A nice memory for the passengers and a great commercial stunt, airline Avianca must have thought. But in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic, the use of brass instruments onboard sound like a stupid idea.

Bart Noëth: Since 1996, I have been working in the Belgian airline industry, from a weekend job as a cabin aircraft cleaner to a flight attendant. After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my girlfriend, friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
