Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi

“Ever since the Lion Air crash, Boeing has been developing a flight control software enhancement for its Boeing 737 MAX type, designed to make an already safe aircraft even safer,” the U.S. aircraft manufacturer announced. The FAA says it anticipates mandating this software enhancement with an Airw...

Re: Airbus A320 and A320neo news

Airbus hinted at a decision in 2019 on whether to launch the A321XLR. Airbus has begun lining up tentative orders for a longer-range version of its A321XLR, as a formal launch is expected in 2019. Airbus is looking for 200-300 draft orders before committing to build the XLR. To be completely honest...

Re: BRU Summer 2019: news, new routes, airlines

It’s a fair discussion about the use of langages at the main belgian airport. I don’t see any problem with that, as long as nobody comes with stupid things like « fly over Brussels instead of Flanders », that’s the difficult part to avoid, I guess. Off course I meant "fly over Brussels and Flanders...

Re: Boeing 797 news

The 797 as it stands now is nothing more than a competitor for the Airbus A321neoLR. Airbus doesn't need to go back to the drawing board. Well, I know for a fact that they are exploring the A321XLR (not launched yet), it would be a A321neoLR but with even bigger fuel tanks to extend the range to 47...

Re: Boeing 797 news

SIAE is in June 2019 ;) I am actually not thrilled by the b797,( assuming it will be a single aisled plane ) nor by the a321LR (or XLR ) I get that the 'MMA' has to be filled, however, I do not look forward to sit in a single aisle plane to cross the Atlantic. Did it 1 time with a b757-200, the exp...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Just wondering if any of you guys know why I cant book Brussels-Johannesburg anymore on Brusselsairlines.com . Okay, these are code share flights from Frankfurt (SN7206 with LH 572) but buying the tickets from brusselsairlines was generally ( a lot ) cheaper than buying it from LH.com directly. I di...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

hence they're also leasing planes so unless they have an agreement from the leasing company this could be a step forward in harmonizing the entire fleet with Trent engines making it easier for maintenance OO-SFY is 20 years old... why would they change the engines for maybe 5 years of flying ? Why ...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

OO-SFY has/had PW4168 engines. On the Home page, the SN Rejuvenating article referred to standardization on Trent 772-60 engines. Could it be that this is what they do now in LIS? I was under the impression that changing engine type is not that simple. Tango and Zulu have also the PW engines. H.A. ...

Re: Ryanair in 2018

I only wanted to stress out that more and more seats are being installed on aircraft, seriously reducing pax and crew comfort. Well, better get used to it with the new A321LR, A321ULR and new boeing middle of the market aircraft. Trans-continental flights in those things will be horrible :( :( :( (...
