Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2020

Wow. What kind of cargo, do you think? And would this be Covid-related? I assume Virgin sees this as an opportunity to make some money?

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2020

This evening, around 7pm, a Virgin Airlines 787 landed on RWY 01/02. Anyone knows why it's here?

And again today. Is this some Covid19 related flight (charter), or a regular service? Funny it routes via Brussels

Re: flights to the Sahel

So you mean they would've let the wheel spin until the pilots think it's stopped and then retract it?

flights to the Sahel

Hi, Just landed on SN255 from Bru to Ouagadougou. 1. The plane kept flaps 1 - is this so air can circulate better around the wing for cooling? 2. On take off to Ivory Coast, it literally backtracked and reversed at the end of the runway, and waited at least 15 minutes or so. Other airplanes and a he...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

Does anyone know why so many planes are parked in this area? Doesn't seem like it's a temporary parking space. Clearly the Finair and Baltic are moving passengers. I'd the airport so busy this morning or something? Thanks

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

Well if they were US'an (or at least NATO), as I suspected, that would explain they knew what to do to legally cross the SHAPE airspace. Why they wanted to fly there is still a bit of a mistery... Also, if they can afford to use a jet for this type of flight, I can see no lack of military budgets :...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

I couldn't say, but he is mighty close to violating the reserved airspace around the NATO installations at Casteau... Photography seems little likely, but perhaps (procedural) training? NB if you have ever stood next to a CL604, you won't call it a "little" jet anymore :) Thanks. I though...

This little jet took off in Nuremberg and has been flying low altitude for a while. Anyone knows what he's up to? Taking pics? Sampling the territory?

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

BRU proofs that they are fine for high and low yield, for low cost and legacy, ànd for whatever aircraft. Vueling and easyJet reduced their ops at BRU significantly, Ryanair doesn’t expand and Brussels Airlines is struggling to survive. The climate doesn’t look that healthy to me. No healthy climat...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

This morning, red devils a320 and rackham A320 were following each other en route to CDG. 15 mins apart, tops. Is this normal schedul? Or just meeting abnormal demand? Would've thought those flights are near empty, at least on the outbound.

Sure. But they are planning on launching flights to the US, right? So this creates more competition

Again, what's the likely impact on Air Belgium's planned services to the US? who knows whether they were looking at Boston, but surely this will increase competition, no?

Re: Primera Air to launch three U.S. routes from Brussels in 2019

Hi, Actually, this is literally the first time I've heard of Primera Air (Primera who?). I assume they'll have to go heavy on branding and advertisement. I'm not sure how the market tends to react, and whether passengers tend to get choosy about their airline. Of course, demand is largely driven by ...
