Re: Air Belgium in 2021

Why else would they go through the trouble to remove all the Qatar titles and logos if the aircraft would be fully repainted? I'm quite sure QR will never let another airline fly with its livery, the aircraft is not owned by QR anymore. Actually they DO: Hungary bought ex A7-AFF to be operated by W...

To give a bit more info of what we could read already regarding the freighters for Air Belgium. CGA CGM, which is a shipowner, bought 2 A330 freighters from Qatar Airways. CGA CGM wants to step in also in airfreight by creating its own cargo airline. Air Belgium wants to use 2 of those of CGA CGM. ...

Re: (Belgian) flight crew commuting to Belgium

I just do the tests and stay at home. Far from ideal, but why take risks and put others in danger? Being crew doesn’t protect you from getting or, even worse, spreading the virus!

Re: DHL A300-600 rejects takeoff above V1 due to difficulties becoming airborne

Well, as mentioned, that is less likely as the result of that would not "show" itself as an inability to raise the nose on takeoff, but as wheels staying on the ground beyond 10° of rotation... which ends up in tailstrikes. That is exactly how the airline reported the incident, but instea...

Re: DHL A300-600 rejects takeoff above V1 due to difficulties becoming airborne

I would like to avoid any "cause" pinpointing, that's not what I'm here for but related to the comments... Why should the V1 have to be higher? I was only hinting at the possibility of a calculation error, where the use of a too low weight led to a too low V1and Vr, as in the case of the ...

Re: DHL A300-600 rejects takeoff above V1 due to difficulties becoming airborne

it must also have been aborted after V1 (as VR is at least equal to V1, can’t be earlier). Which doesn’t mean its impossible for the aircraft to stop before the end of the runway. Unless there was a calculation error and the real V1should have been significantly higher than the one used as in this ...

Re: DHL A300-600 rejects takeoff above V1 due to difficulties becoming airborne

On Dec 3rd 2020 the Belgium AAIU stated the crew reported a normal acceleration of the aircraft during the takeoff roll. During rotation the nose did pitch up, however, the aircraft did not lift off. Not wanting to shortcut the investigation but IF the aircraft did rotate but didn’t take off, the s...

Even if the company goes belly up you will get your refund. You won’t get your money back if/when the company goes tits up, you would be way down the list of creditors.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

My point was that, you have days with 6 long haul flights a day (saturday's) and plenty of connecting flight, and day with one single flight. There is just a problem with the use of the fleet.

Irrelevant? The support given is also reflected in low(er) airport charges meaning that Wizzair, Laudamotion and the Ryanair flights with non-based aircraft also benefit from this support. Some of these flights operate to exactly the same destinations as similar flights from BRU. Your quote was abo...
