Thunderstorms in the region
Good try, but not at all.
The heavy rain falling since yesterday morning in the area is not caused by cumulonimbus clouds/thunderstorms.

Diversions were caused by performance limitations due to standing water on the runway + crosswind.

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

In all 7 recent flights that I took (to or from Belgium) since the end of May, I have been checked for vaccination or for a PCR test. I would like to know which airline allowed those young people on board without checking. In my view, it earns a red card. Blaming without knowing also deserves a red...

They use a wet-lease for the summer season, not anything close to taking delivery in their fleet.

What would the 737 MAX be without Southwest and Ryanair?
The remaining 4000 orders ?

One third of the 737NG fleet flies in China.

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

It’s a huge problem and this mentality is Europe’s problem. Because the opposite is also true: if Europe says stop and national politics says ’nah’ you make Europe useless. Imagine France saying ’we don’t care Europe’ to protect the French relationship with the specific country. Which is why Americ...

Thx. It's not european ban, there are some national bans. I understand better. So national ban and european blah !
Well, the EU "suggests" and every EU country still has the right to make a decision.
I can't see anything wrong here, on the contrary.

B2 869 to BCN is circling yes, but B2 895 to WAW is entering...why a diference ? And B2 868 from AMS is flying...so, blah ?
I don't think Belavia is strictly denied access in the EU at this time?
Spain was probably pro-active and more restrictive than other EU countries in this case?

Their flight to BCN is circling at 34000ft near the border with Poland right now (still within Belarus airspace).

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

The initial statement of Ryanair, which did not mention the fact that two passengers were abducted, was very weak and caused an outrage among travellers and the press. This made Ryanair react (by fear of losing passengers who do not feel safe anymore on Ryanair flights) and finally condemn the air ...

Probably the least likely reason to squawk 7700 and divert, especially when the airport has other IFR approaches available & in such weather conditions.

They can be grateful to their African ops, because forward bookings are terrible on European side, even for this summer.
Most likely the case for every airline, except where governments have given perspectives (i.e. those who have high vaccination rates, so nowhere in the EU, I guess :? ).

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

It's not every day that an aircraft model is grounded. Admittedly, not all MAX's are affected (only some more recent ones), but the model seems prone to attract problems. The fact that only recently built aircraft are affected tells a lot about the bad evolution of Boeing in the last few years. You...

Yet another 737 MAX problem? Boeing has asked 16 of its customers to address a potential production issue related to an electrical power system in certain B737 MAX jets prior to further operations. There will be hundreds of other "problems" with the 737MAX. Just like for any other plane. ...
