It's not very clear so is it possible to fly with a leg plaster on long haul?
Depends from airline to airline and how recent it is, best contact customer service of your airline.

According to Sky News, flybe is near to collapse, but the airline denies.
Not at all, the airline refuses to react, which is very different from denying! :roll:

.... Scientific proof should come from the deciphering of the black boxes. The Cockpit Voice Recorder should give a definitive answer to that question.

No idea what the boxes would record in this case, but shrapnel holes in the fuselage and traces of explosives will be found for sure.

Re: Crash Ukraine Airlines PS-752 Teheran-Kiev UR-PSR (08/01/2020)

I am a regular user of Ukrainiain International Airlines, always felt safe with them, and service is actually good. A lot of new B737-800 in their fleet. If you look at the names of the passengers, nearly all are Persian, so consipracy is out of place here, why would they shoot down their own peopl...

My thought is that one of the 2 new airlines at Charleroi can't be Brussels Airlines,
One of the two can’t be SN for sure, but SN could be one of the two.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

SN flights are well filled at Paris. Lots of bag tags to (FIH) Kinshasa, (DSS) Dakar or Abidjan (ABJ). Of course there are a lot of connecting passengers on CDG-BRU, these flights are only bootable as connecting flights... But a significant portion of these passengers traveled from Brussels to Pari...

I should think that wake turbulence is the main concern, especially from a 747?
Which wake turbulence? IB landed at a point where LH was rolling at lets say 50kts.

Re: Trivia 2019 (miscellaneous news)

Only a few seconds after the Boeing 747 took off, the Airbus A330 landed. A - much dramatized - video of the scene appeared on social media. Too close for comfort or not ? At big airports land after is a common clearance, meaning an aircraft can land even with the previous traffic still on the runw...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

In the mean time, only 20% of passengers think its a safe plane and I'm not in it. So those optimistic airlines will need to push it down the throat of their client... great for their image. And the other 80% don’t have a clue which aircraft they are flying in. A conversation which made me laugh la...

Is there a reason why TUI does not yet decide to store its 737 MAX aircraft in a more airplane friendly climate, such as e.g. Moses Lake Plenty of reasons: -Moses Lake is 8000km from Brussels, quite a distance at 200 kts and FL200. -planning and trying to obtain permission to ferry a MAX across the...

The new TUI-Brussels airlines deal is a opportunity for both airlines. One lost a contract (Thomas Cook) and the other has still a few grounded aircrafts. If TUI would expand its deal with Brussels airlines then they could operate new routes instead. I see this more as damage control rather than an...

Ryanair could pay up to US$336 million for extras that it has asked Boeing to buy and install on 210 new B737 MAX aircraft on order.

Which extras, apart from extra seats?
Wifi would be an educated guess, but you didn’t hear it from me!
