Re: Storm Ciara 09/02/2020

Festival go-arround in BRU now. 4 landings, 4 missing. With the heavy squalls on the cold-font comming in now, no improvement for the first hour.

Google is American. In the most recent pictures, they clean up every airport where a number of B737Max are parked.... :lol:

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Re: Question about wind!!

No problem for a A320. Wind 10-12kt (17-20 km/h) from the nord but gusty, possible 20-25kt (35-47 km/h). Expect some tubulence in lower levels. Weather fair to partly cloudy.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Cebu as a destination may not be a bad idea at all. You'd be amazed at how many Filipino nationals there are in Belgium.

Yes, but they fly with Thai Airways with special conditions.

Thai Airways launches LIVE TV on board.

It was already working on the flight tg935 BRU-BKK 26 May. I was watching the CL finale. BTW, a very good flight in a very comfortable economy seat. Airbus A350 is top!

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

The A340 comming from Finnair had the configuration C45W40Y172=257 already. So, nothing is changed, only the seatcovers.

Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2018

SN501 to JFK diverted to YYZ toronto. Bad weather in NY. Welcome to this forum, mdm. I have different information: SN501 was cancelled and OO-SFM was positioned in YYZ to operate SN502 JFK-BRU as soon as the storm in NYC would be over. See the "Abnormalities" thread: https://www.aviation24.be/forum...
