Re: Abnormalities in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2014

Ryanair FR-1389 Bordeaux-Charleroi 17h20-18h55 is cancelled “Due to ATC strike”, Ryanair.com states. However, Air France AF-5320 Bordeaux-Brussels landed at about the same time: 17h25 (ETA 17h15). So apparently no ATC strike for them? FR-6099 Rygge/Oslo-Charleroi 16h40-18h40 is cancelled “Due to AT...

Re: Brussels airlines future and financial perspective

A question for Inquirer:
As the airline has several fuel hedging contracts, some will be in the money. Would it show in the balance sheet if the airline sells these contracts to cover up bigger losses?

Re: 29 hrs Jetairfly trip from BRU to Lanzarote after divers

The plane went northeast of the island of Lanzarote to turn and try landing at Arrecife on 19. Upon reaching the threshold of the runway, the pilot put full power in the engines and took altitude, RWY in ACE is 03/21 so probably too much tailwind on 03 and not enough visibility for a visual on 21. ...

Re: The Jetairfly Boeing 787

PS: the reason why it's FL431 and not FL430 is to allow you to keep you flight level when flying into and over countries like China that use metric flight levels with 1000ft seperation. Flight levels are FL321, 331, 341,... Thanks for that info, Bracebrace, I was wondering about that... I don't thi...

Re: New destinations from THY

THY will fly to YUL (Montreal) tomorrow if Canadian Civil Aviation grants a permit, but It is not forthcoming as there are some political issues on Canadian side. I personally believe it is not commercial issue or Air Canada objecting! Just political..... A little bit the same as Turkey refusing tr...
