Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

[[ off-topic ]] For this once, dear @Atlantis, I feel it is you that are needlessly negative. Certainly there are those who post all kinds of ideas about how to improve airports and/or airlines; it annoys me too because it sounds so much like the "armchair manager" phenomenon that I so loathe. It is...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

You are welcome to your opinion, yes, of course, for what it is worth. As I've stated before: opinions are plenty, and cheap - everybody has several on hand. Better have more to offer, though, than criticism from the side line - that is all too easy. Like all those "supporters" at Anderlecht FC, the...

it is pityful to see things moving soo slowly Another armchair airport manager? GO FOR IT! Convince them you can do better and then DO better! They'll be glad to make you welcome! Handsfull of money to be gained! Otherwise, you had better be content to observe the airport is - to say the very least...

Mind you, there is even no mention of a 5G network.
What is mentioned is a 5G-ready network - whatever that may mean.

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

Far be it from me to speak in the name of anyone else, atc staff least of all; but I can see only winners here. On the short term some might seem to be loosing, but on the long term there is a gain of clarity and that means stabilty: people will be less excited, less annoyed, less stressy. Which mig...

Re: Trivia 2019 (miscellaneous news)

I should think that wake turbulence is the main concern, especially from a 747? But I also like to think that the pilots know what they are doing. Accidentally, I saw something similar happen at Antwerp airport yesterday: a PA28 started its take-off roll while a DA-42 was on short final. I estimate ...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

And what does that say about actually having sat in one?

Also, I for one WOULD hesitate to enter one - but then, I must admit I am not in a hurry to enter any airliner as a passenger. There are better ways to enjoy aviation, for me at least.

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Have you flown in the 737-200 or classic?
With all respect and sympathy for your obvious annoyance, but what difference would it make whether one has or hasn't ever been seated somewhere back in the tube?

Re: Blue Skies forever

Hm, not so nice to see a "V1" look-alike. Wasn't this artist from Antwerp? That city suffered grievously from them, exactly 70 years ago. My mother's father was among the victims. But of course, such an "artist" has a certain degree of liberty/artistic freedom. I rather liked the characterisation on...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

I fondly remember the twice-daily Sabena flights between ANR and LHR by Boeing 732. I even remember having flown on one of them: on Friday nights the aircraft was flying back to BRU and I flew LHR-ANR-BRU. On the last leg I was the only passenger Hehe, I have a vague memory of a similar experience ...
