Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2020

I was on that flight SQD-PUJ-BRU and experienced a go-around this morning at BRU when the A330 was flaring over the runway 25L at only a few meters hight . That was a first for me and I enjoyed it. WOW.

I have seen a TUI dreamliner at the ramp by arrival in PUJ and BRU
