Re: BRU 29/07/2017

looks to me as a "scheduled" diversion, probably due to some technical reason which required the flight to refuel en-route. Will try to find find out when on duty.

If memory serves well the difference is in the mixture of the fluid (water vss deicing fluid) depending the ...

Re: BRU 05/01/2009

- one of the problems is that it kept on snowing. This means that your holdover time ( = the time your killfrost is effective) is very short. Depending on temp, this can be 10-15minutes only. If at that moment you have holding at the runways, this could mean that some airplanes return to stand, as ...

On previous situations, the CBB "diverted" to AMS as it was running late ( :lol: ). As such, the flowers made the market in time.

Re: Belgian charterflights

Same crew all the way. Not correct. On these sectors there is an augmented (cockpit)crew or even additional deadheading crew. If memory serves well, cabin crew duty times are longer than tech crew duty times. Maybe Bart can enlighten us on this one. No rest areas in the FQ 320's or JAF737's. Greetz...

Re: continental

Het is de week van Thanksgiving. Waarschijnlijk heeft de maatschappij een aantal vluchten geannuleerd omdat ze de toestellen op drukkere routes kunnen inzetten.
