Is SN still flying to TLV? Security doesn't seem too guaranteed...

Correct. 237,238 and 240 will all get new boarding bridges in the coming months.
Whether other works are planned at those stands as well, I have no idea.
Are these the double ones which can be used for widebodies (f.e. 77W and 380)?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

This discussion has nothing to do with SN’s fleet. Stay on topic please Sorry to have deviated from the topic, but the discussions are related: SN will be able to renew its fleet only if it can show a healthy profit, and BRU can and should help SN make a profit. It's in everybody's interest! Comple...

Re: Cruise speed vs top of descent

:) thank you! If I wish to descend rapidly - which is standard practice under certain conditions - a sideslip is the standard answer. Which will indeed increase drag dramatically, while at the same time reducing wing efficiency, thus reducing lift. And I absolutely love side-slipping! But I can ima...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Exactly Ansett. Potential high yield and there's demand for sure. But if SN f.e. would be able to do, why didn't they do it yet?

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

In the article, I see:
"Planned 166-seater A320neo operation as follows."

-> I know it's up to companies themselves to decide, but isn't the 320NEO designed to be a 180 or 189 seater?

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

As far as I can tell, the B77W is hardly ever used by UAL at Brussels. Most of the time, I’d say over 99% of flights, is performed by the B772 whenever a B777 is used. Indeed, I think we only saw the 77W once or twice since it entered service at UA. Delighted to hear about SFO-BRU-SFO, let's hope i...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

The current aircraft, even the newer are not suitable for such long flight. For those flight a proper rest area (a bunk) is needed for the rest of the crew. The current configuration is then not suitable. Bunk should be installed in the cargo area with an access from the cabin. If not, no longer fl...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Why are the prices to the UK destinations that high from Brussels? Except for MAN, because Ryanair flies from CRL. There are many ex pats here in Belgium and many tourist cities such as Brughes and Ghent have loads of British tourists. Why doesn't JET2.com, Easyjet or others offer a low cost link t...

Re: The Airbus general technical questions topic

Thanks for the confirmation, modeS. Yes I know it doesn't make a difference between the CEO and NEO about the ailerons folding down without hydraulics. What I meant was when landing, once spoilers are deployed that with "newer" aircraft also the ailerons raise in an upright position - this was not t...

The Airbus general technical questions topic

Thought it would be a good idea to start a topic with some technical questions around Airbus. Let me begin first: - Why do the ailerons bend down when parked? Because of lack of hydraulic pressure when being parked? - Not all Airbus aircraft ailerons raise after landing I have the impression only "n...
