Re: Terror alert in Belgium, consequences for BRU

I don't think they will suddenly solve their security leaks. At best we'll see more visible 'security' so that it at least looks like that they are dealing with it.

Re: VLM Airlines bought by management, buys SSJ100 aircraft

The LR and the base SSJ-100-95 have the same fuel capacity. The LR has an increased MTOW allowing it to take more fuel without severe payload restrictions thus increasing the range of the type.

Re: Ben Air Flight Academy (BAFA) in Antwerp

As I have experience with these Belgian FTO's I wouldn't advice any of them. If you really want to have your CPL/ME/IR licence I would look for other flight schools in Europe. In short (own opinion): quality of flight training at CAE is poor, higher quality and better (experienced) instructors at BA...

Re: BRU-ATH SN2014 10/06/2014

There was indeed a union meeting during rush hour. However, main problem was that people involved were people transporting the bags to and from the aircraft and not the loading teams.

Re: WANTED: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens

800 euros is indeed very low, and I would have my doubts about the lens if someone would be selling it for such a low price. I also bought this lens second hand a few weeks ago. I'd say a price range of around 900 is more normal.

Re: Ryanair in 2014

I just read this article on pilot churn at Ryanair. Apparently, rumour has it that they are faced with high churn amongst their flight crew and churn levels have risen to the level where it is becoming difficult to maintain a healthy training funnel. Ryanair is adressing the problem with floating p...

Just to clarify: the 70% number was only mentioned for the first days of operation. ;) And even that was more like a rough guess.

Re: BRU: Monthly traffic figures 2013

Yes we can be proud that BRU has done such a great job! An astonishing 0,9% growth in passenger numbers, while airports like AMS and FRA will or have recorded a +- 3% growth. Very good news that connecting passengers fell by more than 3%, that the movements have shrunk again (-3%) and also in cargo ...

Nice report and great photos. I'll complete the photos with a video from the second flight, taken from seat 6A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVO9Aek5EIo
If I see your photos, I think you were seated at 4A or something?
