Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

Seems logical: long-haul and probably some heavy cargo on board, guess we'll see more of this during the works on 25R/07L.

Re: BRU Winter 2020-2021: news, new routes, airlines

Or is another possibility that 2 crews are flying in with one being "off duty" so changing crews in Mauritius to avoid a night-stop or is that not done?

Re: APU avail inflight?

Thx 737MAX. I know it can be used technically but why should you do that? Bleed air is provided by the engines, no?

Could someone please explain which technical reason there might be behind this? Curious to see as I thought this was never (well, never) done inflight? Thanks guys! ED...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Pretty sure that quite some Thomas Cook destinations and secondary cities are in the 22 destinations to be reduced. This news is no surprise at all to me but thoughts are with the employees who are giving everything they can day and night. Maybe I should become more local minded myself as well and a...

Re: BRU 28/02/2020

Why would an Aer Lingus A330 delivery flight from Toulouse stop in Brussels? For the same reason that EI-EIM passed through BRU previously? Technical modifications by LH Technik? Indeed, their previous 330 did the same run. At this moment OO-SNB (SN A320) is flying BRU-GNB as BEL1165. Returning fro...

Nothing against your enthusiasm and commitment Ansett, but a crodwfunding for a commercial company part of a huge airline group with thousands of rich shareholders sounds... a bit weird at least :?

I can't imagine it will be flying around like that. Not even a tail logo...
Also the belly and the engines aren't fully finished...

BRU 06/02/2020 2x Ethiopian 77F at Brucargo

When looking out of the office this morning, I see 2 Ethiopian 77F aircraft standing together at the ramp. Is this coincidence or scheduled? Never saw this up until now as far as I remember.
