...

And on that point, I have to agree. Maybe a dozen (slightly) similar mistakes where...

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

Well, all in all LUX is not a bad alternative. If your flight doesn't leave out of LUX before 10:30, you can leave home the same day. There is a train leaving Brussels at 05:33, arriving at Luxembourg Central Station only 3h17 minutes later, i.e. at 08:50. You then catch the Bus 16 that leaves every...

Re: Boeing 787 news

.... Only British Airways and Air France have operated all A320ceo family. A318/A319/A320/A321. Air France did first as they got A318 in 2003 and not 2009 like BA. They remain the only two airlines to fly the A320-100 too. Actually "to have flown" as there are no A320-100s flying for many years alr...

Re: BRU 28/12/2018 diversion of a Lufthansa A350-941 (D-AIXB)

Why BRU rather than LHR? Don't forget a plane is not an elevator... It needs distance to descend. Agreed and anyhow, as the decision for RTB was taken while in UK airspace, it should have been a lift and not an elevator. Not that I intend to start a nit-picker career but it gives me an excuse to cr...
