Seems to have landed safely at 7:42pm local time, 14 minutes after take-off.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Flew WAW-BRU with SN yesterday morning. First time I was on that 06:45 flight (due to misconnection the evening before, not unusual with LOT). Was a full boat but for 4 seats. After boarding, Capt Speaking announced a 30-minute delay due to restrictions at EBBR (07L arrivals) which triggered the ne...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

Unusual go-around today 31/8 at BRU: TK3926 was on approach on the 01, then aborted the approach (was still over Wezembeek), headed west at 3700 ft till about Gent, made a 270° right turn, followed by a 90° left turn from where it started an approach on the 07L while the 01 was still active for land...

Re: BRU 09/06/2018

It has spent exactly two hours in BRU. That's a long fuel stop! What a waste. It's interesting to notice that a fuel stop may be required for a flight that usually doesn't exceed 11 hours. It's normally well within the A340's capabilities but Bogota airport must be really challenging. It seems the ...

Interestingly, two days ago (June 6), LH543 diverted to Koln.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Their main target is to fly Chinese tourists to Europe at dirt cheap prices. So before flying them back to China, they first need to get them in Europe. I don't think that they will ever transport many Belgian travelers to HK, especially considering that they operate from CRL and that CX is serving ...

Strangely enough, the A340-300 PZ-TCR from Surinam Airways is now in BRU.

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

It has passed over my place one minute before landing and I can confirm that it is a 4-engines 737 ;-). And fairly quiet!

Re: Brussels region noise regulation

The so called "canal route" is just a pure political joke, only used during the week-end. The sooner we get rid of it the better. I don't know if you're replying to my post just above, but your input doesn't invalidate my proposal. The fact remains that non of the communities can enjoy a ...

Re: Brussels region noise regulation

I haven't read the whole 13 previous pages (but I will catch up), but here is my attempt of a realistic compromise. It doesn't help to comply with the Brussels noise regulation, but I believe it could be seen as an improvement for the communities currently exposed to the aircraft noise around BRU. F...

Re: BRU 13/02/2017

Hi, There were 3 successive go-arounds today around 9.30am on the 01. They occurred within 5 minutes. The first one was executed by a British Airways A319 or 320. Does anyone know the reason for these multiple go-arounds? Aircraft on runway, birds,...? The landings on the 01 resumed shortly after an...
