Re: SN and its air fare classes (Y, K, L, ...)

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.

OO-SFE is prepared for action! DSC00333.JPG To me, this looks more like OO-SFE is prepared for a (temporary?) storage... Or am I wrong? Best regards, Duje You mean because of the cabin windows being tapped? As well as the flight deck window N°3. OO-SFE.JPG BTW, isn't it the first time at SN that th...

Re: Belgian Air Force F16 burned out at EBFS Florennes

Seems to have happened on Apron Golf. "Vador" is usually parked in the shelter next to it, on the left hand side of the video. This is pre-flight area usually with possibly some light intervention but no "maintenance". Something went wrong of course but the French "open fire" is kind of a stretch :r...

It’s just the A32F - F = family exactly thees what i meant to say Luchtzak ;) so hold your horses... it’s no sign of a possible A321 coming to Brussels, and the VLM A321 has their own trained crew Agreed and she was more amused than worried or enthusiastic; she had just noticed that recently the A3...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Chatting with a CCM on a Kigali flight recently.
She said surprised that her qual 330/319-320 has been extended to the A321.

Anything in this announcing a bright future?

Lufthansa aims to grow further in Italy with an investment of €100 million into Air Dolomiti, including doubling the fleet to 20 E195s, along with new bases and routes. How about Belgium? I suppose Air Dolomiti make loads of money while Brussels Airlines is not. Remember what Kayser Sphor said : No...
