Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Off topic:
Despite the completely opposite opinions here the discussion remains to the point and polite!

Has anyone noticed that the Belgian airspace remains open for three consecutive nights.

I also notice that it is very quiet at the moment with our friends atco's on this forum.
Well if they are working, they can’t be here! (I hope!)

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

There is also a login system on each working position for licensing/currency purposes (a minimum of hours is required per position per certain period). Each controller can see how many hours he/she has effectively worked over the last months/year. It would be very interesting and it would put an en...

Re: Brussels Airlines' monthly traffic figures

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2019

Yesterday a SACA inspection by the French DGAC resulted in the TUI flight Toulon-Brest operated by SmartLynx Latvia YL-LCU being delayed by 2h30. These inspectors are normally not allowed to delay flights unless it is a major or significant finding. Minor things, like missing or wrong paperwork on ...

Re: Jet Airways' financial situation, can they be saved ?

Due to the cessation of Jet Airways' international flights, KLM is now using B777-300ER aircraft on its flights to New Delhi, instead of B787-9. This provides 114 additional seats (408 vs 294). The route is operated in codeshare with Jet Airways... KLM was also code sharing on Jet Airways flights, ...

Re: Alitalia near bankruptcy. Can it be saved?

Alitalia must pay back 900 million euros in state funds by July 2019, but the carrier will not be able to repay this debt despite multiple extensions. And I doubt that Ferrovie dello Stato can come to the rescue. What's in a name? Italy has, by law, changed the word "loan" into "equity". A loan has...

Take a look at the salary of a brave person who has worked 10+ years radar.
All amounts are after tax / net
It would be much better to post gross salaries.
Taxes vary a lot from one person to another. (Kids, partner, are they working,...)

Like IAD, Washington is not in the state of Washington, but in Virginia!
OFF topic:
IAD (Virginia indeed) is actually over 2500 miles away from the state of Washington.
The city of Washington is not in a state but in the neutral District of Columbia.

All flights to be managed by the long-haul competence centre in Brussels!
What is your source for this?
Afaik, SXD flights are not in any way managed from Brussels.

Re: Any Commercial Impact on MC21 due to MAX issues

Almost two years after the first flight of the MC21 and only two more prototypes came out of the factory, this is a strong indication of serious problems.

That was a quick one. It shows that Brussels Airlines suffered more from the 24-hr general strike than the average of Brussels Airport users.
Not at all!
It shows that there are other factors at SN which caused a decrease in passsengers, eg the bankruptcy of FLYBMI.

Probably only a matter of hours before EASA follows the U.K. CAA.
Norwegian are grounding their MAX fleet voluntarily.
