Re: False hi-jacking alarm on an Air Europa Airbus A330 at Amsterdam Schiphol

Very interesting... This is fake news being created right under our nose and suprising to see how quickly it is taken over as confirmed. When a calamity happens, a tsunami of information starts. Those who are involved don't give details till the situation is cleared (like the Dutch Marechaussee Pol...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

To bring an end to this story, I was contacted by Niky Terzakis, CEO of Air Belgium. There is absolutely no risk of bankruptcy of Air Belgium as a consequence of the ground incident in Lima.

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

In general: the failure of the 737 MAX caused a mess to the whole aviation world. Regarding TUI.be: they did a remarkable job indeed: even without 737 MAX ops, they've managed to realize their summer schedule program with almost no disturbance for passengers (apart from the usual schedule changes). ...
