Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Brussels Airlines introduced their new cabin with a touch of "Art Nouveau". This includes new seats for all classes, an overall new style of the cabin and a bar in the galley for the business class passengers. https://www.brusselsairlines.com/en-be/practical-information/travel-info/on-board/travel-...

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

Bit touchy? Im wel aware of how connecting traffic works. However a large part of SN’s operation is ex-Thomas cook flights, exactly the same kind of operations TUI does. There is no reason why an effort shouldnt be made to get those people on their holiday on time, therefore my statement: cancellin...

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

Meanwhile TUI manages to operate a full schedule from alternate airports. Im sorry but cancelling everything is the easy option I applaud the actions of TUIfly to relocate their 36 flights to the Netherlands and France and arrange bus transport for all pax, indeed a great job of them. But are you s...

Re: National strike in Belgium on 13 February 2019

Pro tip for SN staff: if you want to become a successful ‘national’ airline despite LH’s efforts to turn you into a low cost franchise you don’t go on strike for vague reasons! :| SN staff will not strike (except maybe a few lost exceptions), the cancelations are because basically 'everyone else' i...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

Strange how a nose gear in the grass is a big drama, but continued flight after an unknown cause of an engine failure followed by a subsequent second engine failure is a non-event. Il faut le faire.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Nonsense. 1) you are talking about commercial air transport only, not about the whole of aviation. Correct vocaubalry is the beginning of communication. 2) it is the Belgians and nobody else who killed Sabena AND its successors. Sabena was killed by bad management, SNBA by refusal to invest. 3) The...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I see the same non-sensical romantic dreaming again as usual whenever someone tries to change the shitshow into a good news show. My opinion? While a big pan european EW seems a good plan it is falling victim to the same problem as Norwegian and that is uncontrolled expansion. When the shit hits the...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

I normally abstain when it's about technical matters. But with so many hearsay statements here, I want to join the SFU tribunal. Southbound was at FL350. Return northbound was at FL340. If it was engine failure indeed, wouldn't they have descended to a much lower altitude? https://www.flightradar24...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Remember that in 2001 an Air Transat A330 successfully landed at the Azores after both engines ran out of fuel. Thus it was maybe not a bad decision to continue to Brussels with both engines running normally. Like that should even be a consideration when weighing your options. :roll: I wonder what ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

We already knew that OO-SFU had an engine failure over Algeria last week, but now it turns out the second engine also failed a few times while on approach to BRU! The brake marks in the pilots' underwear will have been noticable :o

The netherlands have a police squadron with american sea eagles to hunt drones. They assisted in Belgium when Trump was here. Maybe an option to prevent such cases?

Re: Norwegian Boeing 737-8MAX diverts to Iran

However, when travelling to the USA you have to fill out a questionnaire, asking if you've been to Iran (among others) lately, and if you're too honest there, you indeed might face difficulties... But if you lie and they find out you've been to Iran (courtesy of Facebook, Google, etc.), it could ev...
