Re: Airbus A330/A330neo news

This last Friday (06 March 2020), late afternoon. The A330 is mostly used for commercial flights to Europe. Is it an A330 of LATAM ? Do not know as TAP has a huge maintenance hangar at GIG Airport that provides services for LATAM, TAP, GOL, AVIANCA, LH, AA, TAGG, etc.. http://www.fasternet.com.br/po...

Re: Consequences of the looming Thomas Cook bankruptcy on Brussels Airlines

Calm down. Let's wait what Greta Thunberg is gonna say. If she declares that air travels is polluting and add to climat changes, then, the bankruptcy of TC is a good thing. No more planes, less fossil combustion,... the paradise at the horizon. Everybody will take his vacation in his backyard. That'...

Re: Belgian FIR quasi-closed during night 01-02/03

In this case, the ATC from Luxemburg, or Cologne, or Maastricht could not take over the traffic? It is just to bring the planes closed to Brussels and then the control tower takes over.
Share the radars signals and that's it.

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

CGN is also a good option for a short trip. Leave the car at P+R Weiden West (free parking) and buy a 2,90 Euros train ticket direct to CGN train station. DB is more realiable that SNCB.

For LUX, the Flibco bus service is great.

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

What's the point to have a "network", if you have to wait 7 days for your luggages, when strikes hit the airport unexpectivly, when airport closes for 24 hours due to energy problems, when trains are suddenly not running and so on...

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

If a passenger can be dropped-off at the free drop-off zone, why cannot he be pick-up there ?

If not, what is the difference between the "FAST ZONE" and the P1 Front Park?

Must tell you that all this is very confusing....

Thank you for any answer...anyway
