Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

The whole tent set-up is a disgrace, never seen any where else than at BRU airport. Well, honestly, it's not as if they wanted this tent to be setup, it's all cascading consequence from 22/3. It was temporary and would never be even an option in normal day-to-day operations. DOH: 45 minutes connect...

It does, an airline like ryanair (famous for rigorous ID checks at check-in) would have confirmed this way earlier because they are 99% sure about the nationality of the pax on board and their system in place, compared to some automated scan-barcode-process to go airside, followed by a quick glance ...

The problem with automatic check-in for all pax is that even no-shows and people who are not supposed to fly will be checked-in, causing de...

Well I'm sure if you put it on eBay-Belgium it'll be gone pretty fast. (Or tweedehands.be for that matter) Even faster if you sell part by part for a good price, expect international shipping tho.
