It is an autonomous public enterprise which more or less fulfills its reason for being towards the public ... they have gone mad Sir, in its particular circumstances ... Should we not entrust this mission to the Dutch, French or Germans. And close Skeyes. Their monopoly should be broken at least. C...

Re: Smuggling a kitten on a TUIfly flight from Varadero to Brussels

Well... by coincidence a similar case became a hot news item in (Flemish) Belgium recently.
Maybe you should remove your post if you don't want to get the Federal Food Agency putting you on their most wanted-list?

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

TAP Air Portugal will not get any more state funds without giving up more control to the government as the carrier is “technically bankrupt”. How bad is 'technically bankrupt'? I bought tickets, and I know that the chance that we'll go to Brazil at the end of July is... ahm... pretty small, but on ...

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

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 ...

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....

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
