Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Your post was a continuation of an off topic discussion which had no place in this forum, since the originating post of that discussion was, again, a thinly veiled politically motivated post. Hence its removal.

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

When an aircraft gets vectored for a visual approach (or an SRA approach), it will end up on the extended centreline of the runway (straight in front). On the VOR approach, it will end up on Radial 260 from BUB, since it's an offset approach. During daytime, the distinction between the runway and th...

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

The RNP approach(-es) for RWY 07L (and 07R) have been published with this Airac cycle (2007) because they will be available before the next Airac cycle (2008) is published. However, they're not available yet to avoid overflying Brussels city as much as possible. The reason for publishing them is the...

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

... RWY07L is HJ only... It's not. The VOR/DME approach on RWY 07L is HJ only. SRAs and visual approaches can still be flown after sunset. Though a visual at night is less than common practice, an SRA (at BRU) happens even less often. It's good practice for both the ATCOs and the pilots in question...

Re: Social actions at air navigation service provider skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

How is it going for the controllers during these difficult times? No different than for anybody else in the same company, as far as I know? If possible, work at home. For those who haven't taken up tasks they can perform at home, they will be coming to work less than usual, both because of reduced ...

Over the last year BAF has been using a HiFly A330 on more than one occasion, so I’d say it’s still a possibility.

Re: KJK 26/03/2020 KLM 747?

I am Quite sure that Kortrijk would be unable to accommodate a 747, let alone why you would want to shoehorn one in. What probably happened is that the “original” PH-BFC was retired and the registration was reused on a business jet. Looking at the call signs it used the last few days, that would als...

While that’s basically they way they handle it, the duration is not up to the pilots, but is prescribed in the relevant manual.
Other than that, yes.

Brake, not break.

Because, for whatever reason, it can't be used. Having one brake inoperable is not that big a deal. It's taken into account for the performance numbers, but that's about it.

What has that to do with Corona cancellations, Sean? :?:
The topic is about the impact, not only the cancellations. Very relevant contribution, I’d say.
