Maybe a way to express one's dissatisfaction would be similar to the common practice in the USA : banners alongside the road "Honk if you want Senator X to leave office".
May I suggest "Fart if you don't like waiting".

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

I suppose the rehearsal flights will be done by OO-ABB in that case. EDIT: same for me, unable to change seats but it seems they try to fill the window seats first and then work towards the middle. Was assigned a window seat as well, so I didn't have to change - especially as it is slightly behind ...

ATIS information M still mentioning 25L for arrivals
As does the BATC website. I guess unless the wind becomes significantly stiffer, 25L should remain the primary rwy for landings.

Still cautiously optimistic about the "whale" landing on 25L:

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

Asked the security agent. They say they are already working 2 hours over their normal shift. They say the airport didnt plan /order enough staff from the security company. Happened in DUS not so long ago: the security company did not care for their workers. And as the task was outsourced by the air...

Thx
CXB
Won't be surprised if they tested both on Saturday. But then again, there is enough time between the two flights to refuel and clean up the cabin. We'll see on Saturday...

Winds are expected to be quite calm atm, so maybe that won't influence rwy usage:

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

I also guess that a good portion of those seats were never REALLY up for sale: you know how badly family & friends need free flights. And press guys as well who usually get their buttocks polished by airline PR-guys' tongues in exchange for some "friendly articles"... :evil: Well no, this time ther...

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

Before the attacks, there was a motorbike parking where parking was free of charge. I can't find any information of such a parking since. Anybody an idea if it still excists? I see that parking area all the time when I take bus 12/21 to get to the city. It is next to the bus station on the arrivals...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Indeed, let's enjoy the fact that we're part of the "lucky ones" who will be flying of the very first passenger flight. THAT's exactly my point of view! A friend just told me: for security reasons, online check-in will open 24hours prior to the flight, thus allowing seat selection. Further informat...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

From what I heard regarding seat selection, they are "unable" to assign seats ahead of time. I guess the seats will be randomly given during check-in. They'll just make sure to assign seats for passengers under the same reservation next to each other. I just wonder if the check-in agents at BSCA wi...

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Well, booking was open as of 11:58 and the system let you enter all your pax details, billing address - just to inform you afterwards that the tickets were not available anymore. Same for me, and I even selected a seat in Y to "play safe" :( The only consolation for me is the Y ticket for the morni...

I tried to book seats (any seats, really) at 1205, but they were all sold out. Tough luck. I guess it does show the interest in this endeavour, though.

Re: Air Belgium in 2018

Alas, so it will only be the first flight of the day for me. Would have loved to take flight no. 2 as well, in a different travel class. But still I'm on the morning flight at least!
