Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I have just looked the 2020 summer network, for SN, i can't see Luanda and Freetwon. SN will also end service to Angola and Sierra Lone, after ended service to Conakry and Ouagadougou ? Montreal and Wahsington services are also canceled ? I've never understood the Luanda situation. Luanda seems to ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Swiss and Austrian are reconfiguring B777's into temporary freighters by removing part of the passenger seats, to operate cargo flights. I guess this is a rather easy modification that can generate extra revenue as the aircraft are still costing money, even when they are stored at an airport, becaus...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Ok, people, I came to this forum to try to get some information about one of my greatest hobbies, aviation and the airline business... What I read above is enough for me now though... This is no information anymore. Although I understand that some of you are working in the aviation business, and tha...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

It looks like more and more airlines are operating cargo only flights with passenger planes (KLM, Swiss, Emirates), some even after removing the seats (Air Canada). Would this be an option for Brussels Airlines? I always heard that demand for cargo on the African routes was high. Could these operati...

Re: Update SN A330 fleet

Why did SFU go first?
It was the youngest of the 3 remaining A330-200's.
But I guess it had the highest number of flight hours and cycles?

KJK 26/03/2020 KLM 747?

This morning FR24 showed KLM 747 PH-BFC landing in KJK at 8:15 am local, and departing about an hour later.
Is this correct?
Any info about this?
I didn't know that a 747 could take off from KJK.
Any pictures of the aircraft on the ground?

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

For the rest, I don't know if it's against BAC policy to take and share pictures from the tarmac? I would be highly surprised if this were the case. Except maybe for pictures of military buildings, planes and installations, I'm not aware of a law forbidding the use of pictures of commercial planes ...

Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2020

If FR24 is correct, then EK 181 made a missed approach at BRU on 16/2 during the storm, and immediately diverted to ZRH (without making a new trial to land). Is this a normal procedure? Why divert to Zurich? Was there no alternative closer to BRU? Only 90 minutes later, the plane returned to BRU. Re...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I guess if they intented to repaint OO-SFH, it would also have been done in AMM?
Or are the planes (re)painted at a different location?

OO-SFH is currently flying from HKG to AMM for cabin retrofit. It's the last one (7th) of the current A330 refleet program.
Is it also painted in the modified Brussels Airlines colours with the white belly, like OO-SFF?
How long does the cabin retrofit usually take?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

We flew economy class with El Al, and it was by far the best medium-haul flight I've ever had. There was plenty of legroom, every single seat got an audio system with headset so you could listen to the flims that were played on the overhead screens or to up to 15 different radio stations. We got a ...

(although the second flight is a "night flight", leaving Brussels at 9.30 pm and arriving in TLV at around 2 am...) I flew to TLV last month, and was surprised to see that secur...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

It seems the problems with the A333's are mostly happening with OO-SFE, -SFF and SFG, so the newer and most recently introduced ex-SQ or ex-CX aircraft.
Is this a coincidence?
I thought the newer aircraft would reduce the operational difficulties...
