Re: Airbus A330/A330neo news

The very first NEO has been delivered to TAP today, so it's ready to enter into service. Not yet ready to enter into service.

Re: What is the weirdest airport you've flown from?

Mumbai (BOM) seems to be a little odd surrounded by slums. Ok, I saw it before in latin American cities, but in BOM those houses are really close to the airport fence. Als uncommon and unlogical that there is another airport (Juhu Executive) literally right across the street, at the end of the busie...

Wow, I didn't realize that the AC aircraft was that low already.
I think the passengers on board of the waiting planes did not notice a lot, but some of the flight deck crews probably crapped their pants.

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

If they were fitted with proper business class, they could be an interesting substitute (economics to be checked of course) for A320s on medium haul destinations such as TLV, DMD, the Canaries, Funchal, in addition to US/Canada East coast and West Africa, and maybe to open a couple of destinations ...

Not a single Boeing aircraft to display, they all left on Friday. Airbus only had the A380 left, while there was announced the also the 321NEO and 350 wou...

Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2017

A Kalitta 744 flew extremely low over my back yard (north side of Aalst) some 15 minutes ago. The are days (wind direction, spreading plans... ?) that this location is a busy turning point for planes approaching BRU (like it 8-) ). But this one was way lower (too low IMO) than the others, about max....

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

Why don't they put it on the Grand Place of Brussels? Better bring your hiking shoes when flying from BRU... Or take the train to BRU, one of the rare airport having the train station underground, so that you don't have to walk so much :-) Night trains and some luggage compartments (not the tiny ov...

If I was a billionaire...

If you were rich... and I mean RICH, what would be your preferred way to travel by air? Would you buy a private jet or fly first class with the finest airlines? What plane would you buy? I would go for the Bombardier Global 7000. B.t.w., I still didn't check my lottery ticket from this weekend :P

Still not possible to book a ticket to Miami for summer 2017 (only until March).
Are they always this late to release it in their booking systeem (with TUI from Amsterdam the tickets for that period are already for sale sinds moths ago)?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

One of problems with the A350 it's that its to big... NYC, LAX, FIH, DKR, JNB... are all destinations that could easy fill a 350-900 on direct flights from BRU. The problem is that the 359 has about the same capacity as the 330-900neo (to replace 333) and that they need a smaller model (332 --> 338...
