Sharp navigator but two hours to reach the target ....

Then probably too much strong coffee after lunch; the scribbling becomes less and less readable.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

OO-SFY has/had PW4168 engines.

On the Home page, the SN Rejuvenating article referred to standardisation on Trent 772-60 engines.
Could it be that this is what they do now in LIS?
I was under the impression that changing engine type is not that simple.

Tango and Zulu have also the PW engines.

Re: Delayed TUI fly Belgium flight TB112 - 7 November 2018

Maybe you should try again by explaining the grievances that you suffered because of that delay.
For example you missed another flight, or a business appointment.

Good luck,

Sorry guys, should have added the tongue-in-cheek smiley.

Ahead of door 1L and 1R, is the Lav and the galley.
You're not supposed to turn left when entering an A320.

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

Indeed a first for me yesterday evening as 07L used to be HJ only. Nice view of the city as you are now overflying a point about 2km further South than the 07L FAF is/was. RNVA is a breeze and I guess we'll soon or later get rid of the beacon navigation developed by the Phoenician sailors 3000 years...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

The Privilege, Premium eco, is worth it in long haul and I'm looking forward to seeing the new cabin. But on the short haul SN should come back to a more attractive Bizz&Class. They have now squeezed the first row on the A320S between the 1L door and the cockpit. Screenshot 2018-11-15 15.04.39.png V...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

So today was the 7th of November and it seems nobody brought this date up.

O tempora o mores in a way but on the other hand it is probably good altogether to have turned the page.
High time if one wants to live the current chapter .... while it is still open.
