Re: BRU-FRA-BRU day trip with LH

I flew LH on September 9 to FCO via MUC and on the first segment we got a croissant filled with strawberry jam and on the second segment it was a pretzel-like thing filled with cheese. I passed for both because I was not feeling so well (having to throw up twice on the train from Gent to the airport...

Re: Ryanair launch a smartphone app

I find it interesting (though not surprising) that Ryanair's smartphone app is €3 whereas all other airline apps are free though. Still, at least they are also making an android version unlike some other airlines who think people only buy iPhones.

Re: BRU winter 2012-2013: latest news, routes, airlines

Thai's timetable on their website seems to confirm this, except for the fact that their timetable shows the a/c operating as a 773 and not a 77W.

Re: Cargo airlines threaten to leave Brussels over noise fin

I agree, in my opinion the only people allowed to complain about the noise are those that lived there before the airport was built, or before a significant expansion took place (I mean things like an extra terminal or runway being built, a new airline setting up a major hub, etc). I mean, if you buy...

So on domestic flights there is no fuel surcharge? Oh wait... :lol:

Re: Speculation of Brussels airlines Next TATL

I was always told that BOS used to be one of the few TATL routes that Sabena made money on, so I could see BOS happening as well.
As for SFO, does anyone know wether the A330s SN currently has (ie: the older birds) have the legs to do SFO?

Re: SN502: JFK-BRU in C with Brussels Airlines (10JUN2012)

That's really nice of SN to to upgrade you to C so you could review it too. Especially considering you bought the cheap promo fare. Now, as the Belgian airline, I was secretly hoping SN would serve some Belgian white wine (the one from "De Limburg" whose name slipped my mind) in C too. I agree that ...

Re: BRU 10/06/2012

Does anyone know what the issue with the UA 777 to IAD yesterday (10/06/2012) was to warrant a nearly seven hour delay? I'm asking because someone I know was on UA951 yesterday and arrived at her hotel in Washington at 5:30am Belgian time (or 11:30pm EDT)

Re: Re: respect for flight attendants

I do believe we need to have respect for everyone. Pilots, Air traffic controllers, Cabin crew, ground handling, technicians, cleaning staff... Just my 2 cents... I agree, and you can add the people who designed and built the airplane to that list as well. Verstuurd van mijn HTC One X met Tapatalk
