Due to today’s national strike in Belgium, and the consequent closure of the Belgian airspace below 24,500 feet, airlines face a passenger backlog. Hence, tomorrow 14 February some airlines will deploy bigger aircraft to Brussels Airport.
For example, Air Europe will change the smaller Embraer E190 to a bigger Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. Much to the delight for plane spotters and – most likely – passengers on board.
- Etihad Airways EY57 from Abu Dhabi B77W A6-ETC
- SWISS LX786 from Zurich A321 HB-IOF
- Air Europa UX1171 from Madrid B788
- Air Canada AC832 from Montreal A333 C-GHKW
Delta will also send a second 767 in addition to its usual Boeing 767 from JFK.
