Re: Trivia 2019 (miscellaneous news)

A new Belgian record! https://www.vrt.be/vrtnws/nl/2019/08/18/27-vrouwen-in-vrije-val-in-moorsele-yes-nieuw-record/ I had hoped they'd used a C130 to jump from, or even VLM - oops, Antwerp Airlines! - and their new old F50 :) but no, it was from two Cessna's - disappointment! Though it must have bee...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Point #37.1.b: it is not impossible to operate airline flights without having an active website. It would help, though :)

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance, Oneworld and Skyteam under one roof?

Fair enough, kzaant, no worries. Still, info from @Atlantis is usually quite dependable, I seem to understand this person works at the airport, possibly somewhere in the cargo business. You can't compare him/her to the "geeks" who indeed enjoy daydreaming - even if there's nothing wrong with that, r...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I'm not a lawyer, so I am wondering if a new call for tenders may demand that the offers will not lead to a deficit situation for the bidders I am not a lawyer either, but (as I pointed out before) I am quite sure Belgian law forbids trading at a loss anyway. So that there needn't even be such a cl...

Has Belgium annexed Southern Poland :) ?

Mind you, I always said these ridiculous IATA codes are a source of confusion and mistakes.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Yes of course. As I read comments here, it is the frequency of problems with the Zaventem luggage handling system that some find unbearable. Might talk of quick-shits - if such base vocabulary may be excused for this once ;)

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Yes, I thought the same. Still, here again I trust the management to have done their homework properly. Perhaps an extra clause in the contract with Amapola, for a standby aircraft to be available? Also, may I be allowed some musing on the "ideal" plane for the ANR-LCY route? * 50 seats is plenty * ...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

A later return flight would be good, yes. This is a business route, and business in London terminates later than on the Continent. But changing from 17:35 to 18:00 is not enough. Better have a return flight as late as possible, i.e. landing at EBAW just short of the curfew, with reasonable reserve. ...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Is there any other opportunity for passengers to get a drink or a bite? Both before and beyond the security check, there is the antwerpflyshop with drinks & small snacks on offer (limited seating before and about 20 cafetaria seats beyond the security check) Well, I have to agree with some earlier ...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Because for travelling to CDG - either from Brussels or from Antwerp - the Thalys/TGV is already offering good service?

Generally, I think feeder flights cannot be a prime business case; point to point traffic should be the aim.
