Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Airbus A220's? Lufthansa/Swiss? Nope, Lufthansa is already wet-leasing 2 A220's from Air Baltic. Air Baltic is in the ACMI business and would have been more 'cost effective'. But they don't have A220's available for ACMI at the moment. The A220-100 would have been perfect out of ANR (Air Baltic has...

Re: BRU 08/09/2019

The hangar on the right is TUI's, but inside on the left is a MAX.
But is there anything interesting in other half of the hangar??

I don’t really see the benefit of actively removing aircraft from the images, but you never know.
Well somebody @Google had a lot of fun removing all those aircraft :-) :-)

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Well, whilse browsing the internet, I recently am getting a lot of ad's from KLM, promoting Antwerp-London (but also Antwerp to the rest of the world, via the Thalys to Schiphol as the first leg). On the KLM booking site it says for the LCY flight: "Operated by KLM flightno. KL0211 | Fokker 50"

Both before and beyond the security check, there is the antwerpflyshop with drinks & small snacks on offer (limited seating before and about 20 cafetaria seats beyond the security check)

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

and job well done by TUI Fly having all its flights depart with all luggage on board (with substantial extra effort from within the company to compensate for the failing or should I say ailing BRU airport infrastructure).

And hmm, I have no links whatsoever with TUI

IMHO, you can't compare the CRJ & ERJ cabins. CRJ is much more cramped.
Flown a lot on TUI fly's ERJ190 and pretty happy about it :-)

Re: Turkish 320 with spoilers up

Speculation mode On: Possibly the inbound pilots 'created' the situation by keeping the spoilers up un-/intentionally (ex. forgetting to retract the spoilers / on request of tech.people,... ). On the outbound leg the plane most likely managed to fix itself ;-) when engine 2 was started, hydraulic pr...

Re: Recognizing planes

I'm not very active as a spotter, so certainly not an expert. I would start with focusing on the nose, the tailcone; that's already enough to spot the difference between A32* family and B737. Nose difference between B777 & 787 is enough (or landing gear). For B787 & A350 wingtips and certainly the e...
