OO-LOE apparently. Not sure whether it’s planned maintenance or an actual AOG.

Re: BAF news

I have no idea. However, if they want to remain operational from EBMB at all times, I guess east of FedPol is pretty much the only realistic location.

Re: Security alignment

I would imagine most differences are due to local legislation/procedures, and not the airlines themselves. For example, since Delta operates on a US Air Operator Certificate, they will need to abide by FAA rules, which might include the need for extra screening. Rules other operators needn’t necessa...

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

If I was writing the article, I would indeed use “crash” as well, since it’s a broader term. However, one of the definitions of “neerstorten” is “plotseling onbedoeld op de aarde neerkomen”, which does kind of fit what happened here, since the aircraft is on its belly, the landing gear seems to be g...

DHL will put some larger/more capacity in BRU, but it won’t be soon, rather soon-ish.

More than a few aircraft pass by the LHT hangar on a regular basis. Not only HiFly.
Recent visitors include Iberia, Air Canada, Level, WOW, and a few more I can’t remember.

Re: BRU Summer 2019: news, new routes, airlines

Seems pretty much like the exact same passenger experience one could have on AA’s 757 a few years ago. I flew that one to JFK. It wasn’t too bad, honestly. But I'm sure you had more than a 30-in pitch on the 757. :D True, 31 in. ;) However, I can't find the claim that Primera's MAX will have 30 in ...

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

There's no such thing as overreacting when it comes to a possible fire onboard. SWR111: fire detected at 2110, aircraft crashed at 2131. UPS6: Fire detected at 1515, aircraft crashed at 1542. Valujet 592: Fire detected at 1410, aircraft crashed at 1413. Things can go south extremely quickly when a f...

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.
