PM if you...

Belgian Air Force tankers?

According to La Libre and De Tijd , the Defence would like to get 3 tankers (Airbus MRTT, 1 in 2025, the others in 2030), as well as equipping the A400M to be able to refuel. Total estimated cost: 1 billion €. What are your thoughts? I don't know on the principle itself of getting tankers... why wou...

Re: A350 FINNAIR -Who's going ???

same feeling as mad_fab... not flying so frequently, so no miles, so no cheap fare, so no A350 flight this year :) Oh well, the A350 will be around for several years, so I am not worried ;-) Enjoy your flights, hope that many luchtzakkers will take this opportunity... and share their experience in t...

Terrible news. I was working in Berlin Today and all my German colleagues are very, very schocked. I am currently in Tegel, waiting from my flight to BRU, and noticed that a huge number of Germanwings flights are now cancelled. Lots of stranded passengers around here. My condoleances to all people i...

Thanks Stij and Everett for your replies! If I remember correctly for my LAN flights, I needed a passport for both legs (CDG-MAD and MAD-CDG).

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

We should start a poll on this ;-)

A sort of "Sabena" retro-livery? I know, Brussels Airlines is not a 100% child of Sabena, but I am just thinking out of the box ;-)

Question about Garuda flight AMS-LGW / SQ MUC-MAN

Hi everybody! I'm tempted to fly AMS-LGW with Garuda's 777 this year. However, I have a question regarding documents to take with me: is the Belgian ID card enough (after all it's only an intra-european flight) or should I have a full passport? When I did CDG-MAD with LAN some years ago, I had to br...

Re: Looking back at 2014

Well, for me 2014 was a quiet year... flights wise! Only two sector, but everything was a first:
- first time in Orly and Ajaccio
- first time in a 747 (and on the upper deck :-) )
- first time with Corsair

Now, I hope to fly a bit more in 2015!

They should learn from aviation: a simple codeshare will do! ;-) Well, in Belgium, why make it simple when we can make it complicated? :lol: They can do the same as fort the 39 and 44 :roll: Indeed, I forgot that "exception". Maybe because the areas served by the 39 and 44 outside of Brussels have ...

I'm not sure that they will extend the subway (metro) in that direction any time soon. However, it seems that there are talks to have a tramway between the City and the Airport. Currently, the line 62 (connecting to Gare du Nord in Brussels) has since April of this year its terminus at Eurocontrol i...
