End of the long haul fleet ?
Or some of the B787's Lufthansa ordered? I can't imagine that they would just let go of their long-haul activities.

Airbus states 8700km meaning this aircraft can reach cities like Mexico, Bogota, Caracas, Bangkok, etc from Brussels. At full capacity, the XLR will be able to fly ...

Belgian Army Equipment

Hi all,

The Belgian army has different types of helikopters. I am wondering which helikopters are part of the Navy, and which are part of the Air Force. I believe that some of the NH90's and all the Alouette III helikopters are part of the Navy. Can someone confirm that?

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

No doubt The Ombudsman Service of Brussels Airport is usually a reliable source, but this time they got their information wrong unfortunately.

Re: Airline bankruptcies, ceased operations, restructurations

Question... Is German Airways still active then ? LGW stands for Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter. It operated 15 Q400's for Eurowings. And LGW was merged into German Airways together with WDL Aviation. But apparently only LGW filed for bankruptcy. I guess the merger was not yet completed. Okay, didn't...

Airbus is planning to develop a successor for the highly succesful A320 family. The first prototype could be revealed as soon as 2026, with deliveries starting in 2030. Also, Airbus wants to make aircraft that are powered by hydrogen fuel and are thus completely powered by clean energy. This should ...

As someone already stated above, these airlines will probably not be seen as competetion as they are part of the Lufthansa Group.

Some media do say that the CVR also has been found. The source mentioned below, states that PIA said that both devices have been found. Who is correct, PIA or DEA?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Any news about the negotiations? Aren't they out of money end of this week? When can we expect some news? I think they want to keep their progressions quiet. Otherwise, there will be too many speculations, like we have seen in the past weeks. I hope they come out with good news as soon as possible.
