Re: ATCO at Eurocontrol

The need must be serious: there were posters and flyers to the same point at my airfield in Hasselt - not too far from Mestrich, of course. I cannot help wondering how the MUAC working environment compares to Brussels Tower: perhaps along the lines of less pay but still quite good, better organisat...

Today Hi Fly 9H-MIP is stealing the show in Cairo, after landing with 471 passengers onboard (full capacity), as there are no other commercial flights operated with an A380 in this airport. It operated Air Madagascar flight MD8130 from Antananarivo (charter?).

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Deurne ?

Ah and when everyone starts liking this company, having a true identity linked to its city and country, it will be absorbed in the low cost Transavia brand :)

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Everybody knows that SN is now a part of Eurowings Group and not LH group. Sn part of EW ? Yes, indeed! You probably missed something: https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/lufthansa-group/brussels-airlines/eurowings-will-integrate-brussels-airlines-2019/ But it still remains awkward, EW is part of th...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Brussels Airlines is not even mentioned by name any longer in the LH group results of 2018. For me it's weird as I still think Brussels Airlines still exists as an airline... Neither here https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/lufthansa-group/generates-second-best-financial-result-in-its-history-forecas...

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

These are only arrivals, so I guess all incoming flights to BRU will be cancelled on 14/02? No 330s leave the 12th only to return the 14th, hence the departures on the 13th 😉 there will be no Brussels Airlines plane taking off out of BRU on the 13th, those A330's will stay overnight at their destin...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

I just wonder which figures they use, if they took them from 2012 for example, they were still flying avros half empty. But things are going the good direction, so I fail to understand their calculations... It would seem less logical, but Swiss have less seats in their 330s and are flying further aw...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

The article in HLN is a perfect example of how to misuse minimal information to prove a point to the public. First of all it says it made a list of other companies salaries only to see 2 airlines... Every pilot with Brussels Airlines knows the conditions at Air France, a first officer a320 based in ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Hi passenger, I think we understand your feelings towards pilots, 'het spat van het scherm', they are spoiled and have no right to improve their working conditions, sort of what I can read from you. You're most probably self employed in the travel business, you're most likely going to feel this stri...

Re: Snowfall hits European airports (10/11/12 December 2017)

I am at AMS right now. Deicing is done while the plane is still at the gate, before boarding! This morning at BRU my plane had to queue for 15 minutes at a deicing station. Just an example of the differences.... Speaking of differences. At Brussels airport (Brussels Airlines) planes have been de-ic...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2017

I'm not pro striking. But I find it sad that in our sector a strike immediately is considered bad, illegal, annoying, etc. The problem for me, are we 'less' allowed to strike than someone in another sector/branch. Nobody here (any forum) is going to cry at mummy when employees strike at Philips, Bos...

Solvay is also bigger than any Dutch chemical company. And what about Umicore? Don't be so negative!
Not talking about size, I'm talking about presence, you always know when on holiday a Dutchman is in the vicinity... If you see what I'm hinting at :lol:
