Atlantis,
I seem to remember that someone dropped the name of ABSA Cargo as another cargo operator for Brussels.
Any news on that one?

Cheers,
OO-JFP
ABSA Cargo was a LATAM flight. Don't know if they are still flying for them on the BRU route.

A rather strange reasoning behind the verdict indeed.
“All engines out” is also a procedure described in the manual of every aircraft, though I’d doubt you’ll find any pilot describes it as a part of normal flight operations.
Not in flight, no. :)

Re: 25-31/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

When you strike till a company goes bankrupt you should accept there might be consequences. If you play with fire you might get burned! It would make complete sense for a new employer to take the work-history of candidates into account, and instigating and/or furthering this disproportionate strike...

Re: 25-31/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

My cargos are suppose to fly ET last Thursday to HKG but I see there’s no cargo arrival/departure information at all from the airport website. Not sure if all are cancelled or what. Unlike the reports might suggest, the Cargo department is on strike also. But, as ever, well overlooked as there is l...

Re: 25-26-27-28-29/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

The management of baggage handler Aviapartner has sent a bailiff to the strikers. The trade unions would stop employees and block carts used on the tarmac. That is what De Tijd writes.

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2018

Is it legal not to pay out what was singed for!!!!! Then you eventually possibly perhaps can go on strike to obtain payment. But that 250 € has been paid before they went on strike. Payment was far too late indeed. But maybe their bank refused them to go even further in the red? The management knew...
