Re: SN aircraft intercepted by French Rafale last June

Some people seem to forget that they also have a social life, i.e. a family at home demanding their time too, which is logic. Never forget sleep deprivation due to cycling biorhythms is really hard to overcome on a short period of time. It takes a long time to recover from a few nights lost sleep du...

Re: BRU 12/03/2014 fog, airport closed for 1 hour, delays

Actually when you think about it, it is not really so much a grey area. if on the LIDO chart you read CAT3b 0 - 150R COMPANY it means your minimum RVR is 150m, you can perform a CAT 3 without DH procedure (or DH = 0). This implies the navigational facility is completely up to standards in term of pr...

Re: Ryanair passengers held hostage

Hi Sean, Just out of curiosity, doesn't ryanair have a dispatch centre (OCC) to help in these kind of 'out of pilots/cabin crew control' situations? They usually have a lot more resources to work with apart from a handling freq and a 'few' phone numbers... I honestly believe the situation escalated ...

Re: Ryanair in 2014

Great for RYR. Great idea as well from BRU airport to offer gates to Ryanair which will not be used. Very efficient way of fucking up everything you have been claiming to stand for. (Don't see EZY at the gates eh...) I still am very curious about the slots MOL is looking for... has anyone found any ...

Re: Brussels airlines future and financial perspective

At the beginning of the year, SN claimed that the loss for 2013 would be between 0 and 20 million euros. At present, they speak of a 25-30 million loss with subsidies, 46 million without them ... Some discrepancy ! Indeed, but they had two costly strikes this year: one from the ground handlers, one...

Re: Brussels Airlines : pilots strike looming

I've got news for you, too : there are A LOT of people who work A LOT LESS harder than pilots for A LOT MORE money....and they don't have the lifes of (hundreds) of people (including yours) in their hands. A train driver can have more than a thousand lifes in his hands; as far as I know, he is not ...

Re: Brussels Airlines : pilots strike looming

Maybe you don't know that there is a very strict FTL scheme in Europe which ensures that all crew members are entitled to a satisfactory amount of rest in order to perform their duties. As for experience, that's not directly coupled to age. I've had the pleasure to fly with some extremely competent...

Re: Brussels Airlines : pilots strike looming

I often wonder, if all you forum-managers believe to be so skilled in managing an airline, why arent you? I propose the name Luchtzak Lines, you can pay the pilots peanuts :) or better, have them pay you for being allowed to work... sounds great!

Re: Brussels Airlines : pilots strike looming

As far as I know there is no information from the talks that took place/are taking place today.
We met with both parties today to be 'informed' of the current state but this was 'pre-meeting' so at this time, no news.

Re: Dreamlifter with a problem...

If you fly a visual you should know your surroundings.
If you fly an instrument procedure, you should fly it accurately...
Not sure what happened here but those pilots will surely be very embarrassed...

If you want to believe you CEO without a doubt: be my guest. I sincerely hope they slash your working conditions in half tomorrow without any alternative.

Romax I believe every strike has an impact. For some more important than for others. If you based your life decisive 'moment' to be dependant on any service provider, then you are taking a risk. You can NOT get any risk free services in this world, if you believe that you are a fool. What if the air...

Sorry but this is not about increasing capacity.
