Re: Direct flight vs Nonstop flight

I had to look twice last year when my MIA-ATL was displayed as Miami-Atlanta-Brussels at the gate in Miami.
The first flight was on a MD80, and ATL-BRU on 767.
Now the DL80 seems to be MEM-ATL-BRU.

Re: Air Berlin files for insolvency as Etihad pulls funding plug

Also, this flight is empty so it has a lot more range than a fully loaded 330.

Re: Report: Top 10 routes by seats in August 17 in Europe

52 flights a day (as checked for yesterday thanks to FR24) between SDU and CGH
According Flightstats on 25/08, if you count in GIG/GRU (I know, airport pair vs city pair, but still...)

GIG-GRU: 13
SDU-GRU: 11
GIG-CGH: 9
SDU-CGH: 60

Total 93 flights/day :shock:

Re: June 2017 Gulf crisis: The World vs Qatar

BTW, Oman Air must be making quite a lot of money because of the ban: they are the only gulf airline with connections between DOH and the rest of the gulf (KWI, BAH, DXB, AUH, Saudi Arabia) via Muscat.
I flew DXB-MCT-DOH (787 and 330 now), and most of the pax from DXB connected to DOH.

A strange story: surely the baggage holds are not pressurised? That can should have exploded!
Baggage holds are pressurized.
They sometimes transport dogs in the holds as well 😉

Re: Trip report BRU-BCN-BRU on Vueling... or should it be Delay-ing...

Well, did your sister think about EU compensation for her delayed return flight? This might soften her pain a little bit: Financial compensation In addition, if you are denied boarding, your flight is cancelled or arrives more than 3 hours late on arrival at the final destination stated on your tick...

Re: Kolovia EI-ETJ: plane crash Egypt

That NOTAM is quite recurrent the last years. And it's only up to FL100.
99% sure it has nothing to do with it. For the moment technical failure (+maybe pilot error) seems most probable cause for the moment.

Re: Abnormalities in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2015

No it won't, because it was not fair to attack Ryanair because of that. I do not like Ryanair and think its way of working are not fair, BUT regarding the "low on fuel"-status, it can happen to any airline in Europe, and this is proven once again. You can not take unlimited fuel on all flights just ...

I've done both. VOR 07L is allowed daytime only. After dark if runway 01 is not available, they use 07R.

Indeed, don't expect an A330 for Thomas Cook Belgium soon. An A321 maybe, that would be the largest aircraft suitable for TCW.

Re: Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium in 2015

I heard D-AICI and D-AICJ were going to Belgium, so this would indeed be Belgian colors. Surely not Condor as they still have their own titles and UK will only receive A321's.

Re: Turkey and Belgium

Thomas Cook Airlines will perform a daily flight to AYT this summer iso giving them to Tailwind or Onur Air.
Maybe a change in tactics? Are those Turkish carriers still as competitive?
