Re: K3 - now on thomas cook plane!

Interesting allegation. And how -exactly- do you measure the return on investment ? Just for the 2 variety programs on Flemish tv, they've got 6,5 minutes prime time: 4 minutes on VTM (kind of RTL) and 2,5 minutes on VRT (counterpart RTBf). I haven't counted the number of times that "Thomas Co...

Re: K3 - now on thomas cook plane!

K3, who are they ? Belgium: one point. K3 stands for Karen, Kirsten and Kathleen. Three young ladies who started a musical group about ten years ago, aiming for the age group 1y-12y. Excellent clientele: their parents and grandparents buy K3 cd's, K3 clothings, K3 shoes, K3 bicycles, tickets for K3...

Re: SN flight to TLS left without baggage !

Please go back to the very first post here, and read one of the many articles about this story. Brussels Airlines says it's force majeure - overmacht. It is not . A strike by a private contractor is never "hand of God" (apparently the English term for force majeure / overmacht). A strike b...

Re: SN flight to TLS left without baggage !

Some selfish passengers don't understand that the interest of the airline have precedence over their own comfort. Allow me to disagree. Going on a 4-day breakaway with luggage is not "comfort": it's basic. Also, if the interest of an airline differs from the interest of the passengers, th...

Re: Abnormalities at BRU / ANR / LGG / CRL / OST 2011

Strange notices on BrusselsAirport.be for SN2815 BRU-PRG (Wednesday evening):

Departure SN2815 at 22h10
Arrival SN2815R at 22h29 (BRU-BRU?)
Departure SN2815A at 23h23
Departure SN2815B at 01h04

Does this R (2815R) means the aircraft returned to Brussels?

It's a flight to Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia with 42 illegals (+ police) on board: their asylum request in Belgium has been refused and they are being repatriated.

It seems that the landing gear of an empty Fokker-50 failed whilst the aircraft was just parked on the tarmac. Dutch news sites report that just one engineer was on board, and that an airport rep tells the aircraft OO-VLE is a total written off. Source : Rijnmond TV http://www.rijnmond.nl/Homepage/N...

Re: Taxi's blocking Brussels Airport after police shot drive

Dear all, Allow me to clear some things up: Language situation: Brussels Airport (BRU here after), including runways, buildings, parkings and taxi ranks, is sole Flemish ground. So only Belgian laws and Flemish laws (“decreten”) apply. The Brussels Capital Region has no jurisdiction at all at BRU. T...

Fligtstats says that JAF601 will arrive in Punta Cana at 16h32 (local time), 18 minutes earlier then scheduled. Strange, if OO-TUC had to come back to BRU after take off.
