Re: Air Belgium in 2019

CEO says that AB is the only one who is allowed to talk about their plans and AB wasn't even contacted for the article on L'Echo. So Kinshasa is false. Source for the Kinshasa scoop in Le Soir was Renaud Witmeur. He is (apparently it will be soon: he was) executive chairman of Sogepa, a new co-owne...

Re: Brussels region noise regulation

Still: when reading this kind of text, it is crucial to read what is NOT written. In this text I see no indication of rigourous action, judicial complaints, or such; so I understand that negotiation and compromise will stand their chance. Good news, I should think. Strange. I do see that judicial s...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

All airlines from D.R. Congo are on the EU Aviation Safety list (the "blacklist"). Hence Air Belgium is not allowed to codeshare with Congo Airways (unless Congo Airways uses a non-banned aircraft, like Korongo did with OO-LTM). Next hurdle: only 5 weekly flights are allowed between Belgium and the ...

That remains to be seen! Unfortunately, the above quote is not ...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Which only reinforces my point that “MAX” is a commercial name, and not a technical name... So they certainly have to use "737 MAX 8" in commercial communication to the public. Actually, No They dont, they can even call it a “B7M8” on the website/ticket if they want. They also are not legally oblig...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Except Boeing calls it the 737-8-200 as well, as per the table on their website and the Type Certificate Data Sheet. “MAX” is nothing more than a marketing name, it’s not part of the ‘technical’ name used for the aircraft. As such, Ryanair isn’t strictly lying, their aircraft are indeed 737-8200 or...
