They took off from runway 11 (albeit a bit later), although other departures were from rwy 29. Was there a specific reason for this?

Re: VLM Airlines news 2014-2015

Wasn't VLM going to buy those SSJ's? In that case it would make sense for the remainder of the lifetime of the Fokkers to get the money for selling them, and using only a bit of it for the lease untill the SSJ's are here? Maybe they needed more cashflow?

Re: VLM Airlines news 2014-2015

All in gamble can burn all the money there is left in the bank in a few weeks, even before they are able to reduce the schedule. And then there is no more VLM. My opinion is that they are not in the position for a big gamble. Like I said: maybe the airport itself has offered some kind of compensati...

Re: VLM Airlines news 2014-2015

Entering the Friedrichshafen market sounds like an ok idea. No competition from other airlines and a proven market (not a big market). Just putting in 3 airplanes is too big to start an operation. If I was VLM management I would start with just one F50 and fly 2 daily to Hamburg and daily to Berlin...

Hello

OOGEE is a PC12....

Greetings,
Indeed, my mistake.
But why are there more flights than your list? Your input is very much appreciated, but how can we get a more complete list? Where do you get your information?
