Re: The CityJet Sukhoi SSJ100-95 saga is hurting Brussels Airlines

I can understand that the company is looking for a more reliable plane on the lower end of aircraft sizes. On the other hand, the change from the SSJ to CRJ will be dreadful for passengers: crampy cabin, no space for hand luggage, no boarding via jetbridge... because apart from the somewhat higher n...

Re: BRU 20/10/2018

Pardon me for asking, but is the Air India 744 still at BRU? I got confused in the "big exodus" of governmental aircraft yesterday... and FR shows DEL-BRU as its most recent flight.

Also, is the Il-96 expected to leave again today or is it expected to stay longer?

Re: BRU 18-19/10/2018 ASEM summit - heads of state or governments of 51 European and Asian countries

Yes, I know that not even all the heads of states arrived (KE 747 should come in from LIRF), but are there already any preliminary times for departure? Would be lovely if they all (at least the Asians) stayed until Saturday, when 25R/07L is closed down... ;)

Any idea on when the two Japanese 747s arrive ? Thanks Kind regards, Laurent 18 okt om 1620. Any idea where they will be parked and if so which RWY would be the most logical? After the Vietnam B789 meant to park at EBMB landed on 25R, it seems there is sometimes a weird logic behind those landings....
