Re: The Trump administration and aviation

...please respect my first amendment mods... I’m not really interested in entering the Trump-Erdogan discussion, but I did want to respond to this. There’s no such thing as a first amendment right on a private forum, especially since it’s not even registered in the US. The first amendment (and simi...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

Regarding A330s and A320s: not the same company, as far as I'm aware. VLM (SHS Antwerp) versus VLM Brussels.

Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018 - cockpit strike 10 August

Dear Passenger, you seem very good at ignoring this question again and again. Fortunately, I’m very good at asking the question again and again: what is the alternative you propose?

Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018 - cockpit strike 10 August

As has been mentioned earlier: that wouldn’t work, since the flights are cancelled. Hence, no flight plans, no fuel, no crew transport etc. etc.

Re: Ryanair cabin crew strike 25 and 26 July 2018 - cockpit strike 10 August

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, since you seem to skirt quite handily around the question each and every time: what would your alternative be? Do you really think a strike is the first action in the toolbox of the unions and the crew? They haven’t tried anything else, they haven’t tried...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

Maybe someone in training? In any case, the number of flight attendants required is not defined by the number of passengers on board, but by the number of seats (1 per started fraction of 50). In expectional circumstances a single flight can be approved with less than the mandatory number of flight ...

I thought flight attendants were the ones to open emergency exits?
Definitely. Unless a pilot physically steps out of the cockpit and opens the door himself.
Then again, I’ll never accuse any media outlet of having a good working knowledge of anything concerning aviation.

Re: Air traffic control restrictions are getting out of control

The solution is a Europe-wide ATC! When will the EU understand? That's basically what EuroControl is for the upper levels. If you take a look at the list of restrictions, it obviously doesn't solve the problem. Just because you make some service pan-European, doesn't mean your problems are solved o...

OO-JAS (JAF2XB) made a u-turn over the North of France, and seems to be heading back to BRU or CRL.
EDIT: seem to be in right hand downwind for BRU.

...it's an epidemic!!! I just wanted to comment that this part is actually pretty true. As an example: flights departing from BRU without a slot delaying their departure due to a restriction somewhere along the route are rather rare these days. Lots of traffic, lots of bad weather, and a few strike...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

I may be pedantic (again), but the airport does not close due to thunderstorms. Ground handling stops, that much is true, but the airport is not closed. Pilots are welcome to fly an approach, or take-off if they want to. However, if they need ground services, they won’t get them until the “Lightning...

Sure we do, you can put those topics in civil aviation.

EI-FWD is the SSJ which had an incident upon landing on June 20th. I guess it’s still not fixed.

Some problems with flight data at Belgocontrol apparently.

Clear the Sky procedure in progress/has been performed.
