Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Vueling may move away from an all-Airbus fleet and migrate to the B737 MAX, according to Willie Walsh, CEO of parent IAG. Did Walsh lose some bolts and become nuts? How will his customers react? They're probably cheap to buy now, and will be delivered long after the MAX has proved itself safe :geek...

Re: Safety question: always passengers at the emergency exit or not???

Hi, I thought that exit doors on the wings always should be manned(womanned ;) ) during a flight. Flew with SAS this week the 12 seats were empty. Last year with Ryanair this was also the case but the cabin crew asked some people to move to the exit seats. Ryanair has it as a company policy, but it...

Hahaha, Sure, the macro-economist (and lets not forget a Cessna pilot) is right and the majority of the professional aviation community isn’t :lol: I'm pretty sure that a majority of your "majority of the professional aviation community", if they would read the full article from Geert Noels, will s...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

What Geert Noels describes, is the unconvenienth truth for all aviation professionals involved with the 737 MAX, including some av24.be-members. For me, that explains who some shoot the messenger. :mrgreen: Hahaha, Sure, the macro-economist (and lets not forget a Cessna pilot) is right and the majo...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Airlines and passengers will get the service they pay for when there is the correct and responsible amount of staff for the maximum traffic they would like to have flying around. It's that simple. This is what I talked about last time When I said atco’s have lost touch with reality. Imagine you ord...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

That is indeed the case. It is not important what color is on the plane. But there is a real concern in this: 1) EW is not doing good, but in meantime they swallowed SN into them. What in case that they will stop with this project?? Then there will be even no airline anymore in BRU bcs SN is owned ...

Good luck to the SN staff.
Does anyone know if Tolipanebas is still flying for SN? I would like to stick it to him.
Ask passenger, he knows him very well I heard.

Sad news, but predictable, at least for the realists (otherwise known as “bashers”)

You use smart phrase about fish without realizing the implied message?

And you could have gone without the the implied insult or the wise quotes but here we are. If i compare what we have now, sure we have a good thing going. We work way too much and have to accept way too many violations, but yes. But compare that to where the CEO wants to go, and it's a whole other ...

When a fish says he’s not a fish, does it make him less of a fish? When you’re in a situation for long enough its quite common to lose touch with reality.

Right. I should have said you made his article a click click attraction by only quoting « the 737 MAX is an unstable aircraft that should never fly again ». He is totally right (in my opinion at least) on the economic aspect, but his opinion on the rest shouldn’t be there at all. It’s definitely no...

At the bottom of the article is mentioned that doctors found inconsistencies in the sickness of absent controllers. I am honestly as surprised as you are as we have no idea who they would be talking about. Every controller who calls sick (even for one day) receives a checkup doctor. To our knowledg...

How about SN needed capacity "right now" with CSA and Eurowings giving them the best offer they could get? That amounts to admitting that others are better than yourself at your core business: operating airliners at best economy. For a short-time urgency it may be the best solution but a year-long ...
