I noticed a small difference in the security video the voice changed it's not this famous British guy anymore? (I don't remember his name)
Ray Cokes is his name.

I think I recognized his voice on the safety audio announcement on LOT. Anyone to confirm?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Got the same from chats with Cabin Crews on SN flights earlier this week. "Euro White" across the LH Empire, with the aim of easing A/C transfers between the airlines. No idea concerning the lower part of tail though. Similar approach for Flight Crews "interchangeability", leading to communications ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I fully understand the frustration of those affected, arriving at destination without their luggage. On the other hand, an airport baggage handling system is extremely complex.

Re: Monday morning smile

The LED also generates a lot of heat but right at the source, i.e. at the chip level. A good design of a light/projector implies a good heat dissipation management in order to avoid exceeding the junction max temperature and dramatically reduce the life expectancy of the LED. However it is true that...

Flew WAW-BRU with SN yesterday morning. First time I was on that 06:45 flight (due to misconnection the evening before, not unusual with LOT). Was a full boat but for 4 seats.

According to Flightstats.com, OO-SFZ was planned for SN515 yesterday. At 07:21LT, a change of equipment is recorded and Zulu is replaced by OO-SFL . Simultaneously a delay in departure time is applied. Maybe this change driven by a technical issue didn't reach the level of administrative check? Appl...
