Re: Introduction of Brussels Airlines' fifth Belgian Icon OO-SND: Aerosmurf #SNSmurfs

Congrats Quixoticguide ! Thanks to your photo FR24 has now updated OO-SND. Screenshot 2018-03-25 17.14.29.png Though still not knowing where she flies to. ;) Guess heading for LIN? H.A. Yes it was LIN - chosen for the almost-inaugural service because it is the home town own Maria Mascellani, whose ...

Re: BRU 25/03/2018

xxxx-0500 SN3771 A320 OO-SND to ALC 1040-xxxx SN3772 A320 OO-SND from ALC The latter flight appears on FR24, so it seems logical that it will fly the outbound flight as well. It is the first confirmed flight for the #SNSmurf plane. On this note: does anyone know if the times in FR24 for 25.3. are al...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

ETA 2300 sounds tough indeed: the company wants to keep the secret until the official event. Well, fair enough.

Introduction of Brussels Airlines' fifth Belgian Icon OO-SND: Aerosmurf #SNSmurfs

Are there any news on #SNSmurfs? I know it will be officially presented on Saturday 24.03. - but nothing more (e.g. when it will be back in BRU before the event - or when will it fly the first commercial routes). I guess the presentation will be a "by invitation only" event for a selected audience -...

Re: BRU 22/03/2018

Yes, European Council summit today and tomorrow - lots of flights expected I guess. However, the Brits could be leaving today, as tomorrow is a EU-27-discussion (without UK) on Brexit.

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

Back in 2016, when I was still based in Vienna, but frequently flying to Brussels for business, I was scheduled on a BRU-VIE flight for the morning of 22.03.2016. However, as the business meeting I flew over for ended very early, I re-booked for a flight on the evening before. I even felt lucky beca...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Am I the only one annoyed by the never-ending moaning and whining about flag colors? The stickers are at their places: get over it or turn away when you see it. Period.

Back to substantial questions: I am really curious if they start flying to China from 15. April... somehow I still have some doubts.

Re: EXIT signs on aircraft

Overwing exit on Air Koryo's Il-18 (last one worldwide to conduct scheduled pax flights, btw): https://image.ibb.co/ccXzEc/2007.jpg Notice the small compartment, obviously storing EMERGENCY ROPE, so that you would not have to JUMP from the wing. And "EMERGENCY EXIT" - maybe just to remind that this ...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

As I said, it wasn't an option because CRL and LGG were way to small. Extra hindrance was the lack of partner flights at CRL because at that time it was an almost exclusive Ryanair airport. These days there are other companies flying there. Whether they are suitable partners is open for debate. Som...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Nice picture! Is it known already when it will leave BRU? https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/air-belgium/air-belgium-obtains-its-air-operators-certificate/ Well, that means Air Belgium will fly from CRL to China, beginning mid-April. So far so good (?). My question was: OO-ABA seems to be currently...

BEL9901 OO-SND taxiing out from the hangar for a flight to Ostrava, probably to be repainted into the Smurfs livery?
Yes that should be the case. Does someone know when it will be presented in BRU with the new livery as #SNSmurf?
