Just checked it on the AIP The highway is at 1600m but you got factories at 800m. The LDA/TODA is 2550m on the 25 now. A 767 at full payload with no wind requires approx 10000ft. If you gonna have big planes coming in, you gonna need to build a threshold, which you don t have now on the 25. So for a...

Well JAF-Flyer, Winds in Belgium mostly blow from the South or from the West. Airplanes land on the 11 only exceptionally when the wind is calm. Flying at EBCI I until now never had to land on the 07. Always on the 25. The situation at EBAW is quite similar to that of EBCI. I agree that if you have ...

Downgrading from SN while upgrading from VEX and taking something in between is the BA strategy. I personally don t care that there will be no service in the B'light cabins: The flights are mostly within 2 hours of flight time and on-board sandwiches as well as drinks are very expensive. PAX will ju...

LH8946 A380 Frankfurt - Hong-Kong delayed

Technical problems on the hydraulical system of the rudder have delayed the flight from Frankfurt to Hong-Kong with 439 'guest' pax for 3 hours.
The failure has been repaired but parts needed to be imported from Toulouse by Airtaxi.

Such new aircraft and already problems...

Yeah let s extend the EBCI runway!!!
It s so easy!!!
You got to remove the 2 highways on both sides of the airport to do that.
EBLG or EBOS would be a better option indeed.

Cabin-crew staff are complaining everywhere in the world, not only at SN!! Look at Ryanair's for example. Some people do though not realise how lucky they are to have those jobs!! I m sure cabin crew staff earn around 2000€ net a month. I m working hard for just 1200€ a month just to pay my ATPL-cou...

The Blight en Bflex is a very good concept I think. They ve got all the ingredients to make a great thing out of it!!! I m sure there will be no strikes on the opening day, the unions aren t that stupid you know. They just want to put some pressure on the airline from its start, in order to remember...

Check liveatc.net for KJFK select Archives and take KJFK TOWER at 16:00Z on the date of 19/03. You will be able to listen while Tower gives historical "clear to land" call to the "Super".

Euhm I heard from one of my colleages who used to work for the airport security that Aviapartner handworkers are overexploited, that the managements has no feelings for them. Actually sometimes they are so overused that the security people need to load the luggages on the aircraft in their place, as...

At least th repainting should nt have cost that much, They changed the S-tail into a B-tail, changed the SN into the new logo and kept Brussels airlines.
Looks like a low-cost carrier design.
I see difficult times ahead.
