Re: 2019 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

It's containers on a platform on wheels, so in stead of changing the wheels they might as well just transfer the containers.
I'm curious how they plan the machinists on those trains... I hope they're not away from home for 20 days.

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

The LAX-flight arrives at 11:45 AM? That would mean you're planned to take BA396, departing at 13:40 and arriving at 15:50 at BRU. After 11:45, the first SN-flight isn't scheduled until 17:50, which would mean an inconvenient long layover... So I guess they're taking passenger-comfort over alliance-...

Re: Thomas Cook ceases trading; UK CAA launches giant programme to fly its customers home

The two rotations that are cancelled today, are charter flights exclusive for Thomas Cook. That way, Brussels Airlines puts all the responsability with THCB (as the B2B contract states). Indeed, those destinations aren't even on the destinations-map of SN. So I assume these are indeed scheduled cha...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

- No: other tour-operators will absorb most of the volume, but they will be looking for planes (there is no TCAB anymore to take them from), so who will do what? What happened to the A321's from TCB that went to VLM? //edit nevermind: only A320's. According to wikipedia 5 of them: 2 to TC Baleares,...

Re: Airbus A320 and A320neo news

All, but the last one, in the Bruair fleet are converted. Airbus did it by moving the two toilets that are left and right behind the last row. This free the space for more seats. The 2 toilets are in the galley facing the back of the plane. https://theflyingengineer.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/ceo-...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Just an idea ( coming from KLM replacing one daily flight with a train connection ): why not use the Diabolo underneath A-pier West and have a second station built, exclusively for (high speed) train services from the neighbouring countries? Now they still have the room and the possibilities to do ...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

As from the end of March, the beginning of the Summer season, KLM will replace one of their 5 daily fights to BRU by a train connection between Schiphol and Brussels Airport. They will use the Thalys for this and it will be the first test case for the near future. In meantime, the NS is testing the...

In meantime, the NS is testing the new ordered Intercity New Generation trains. They will come into service in 2021. Also those new trains will be used between Schiphol and Brussels Airport and will replace the Thalys. Are you sure. I think they will replace the IC direct between Brussels and Amste...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Airbus A220's? Lufthansa/Swiss? Nope, Lufthansa is already wet-leasing 2 A220's from Air Baltic. Air Baltic is in the ACMI business and would have been more 'cost effective'. But they don't have A220's available for ACMI at the moment. The A220-100 would have been perfect out of ANR (Air Baltic has...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Regarding Tel Aviv, and some wikipedia'ing... BRU-TLV is 3255km, so expect about the same for ANR. ANR has a runway of 1510m. A Fokker 50 has a maximum range of 1700km (and it would take over 6 hours to fly there), so that's no option at all. But what are the options... Good-old Avro's? CityJet has ...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

If I remember well, they flew ANR-LCY in the past, and that company went bankrupt. Why try again?

Maybe because they have a better plan now?
