Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Somehow TUI managed this afternoon to get the bags on carts in the departure lounge and in the plane on the tarmac...

Congratulations!

PS maybe other airlines as well but for TUI I have a testimony...

Re: Question about flight plane

Welcome to Aviation24 Epicolor,

I'm afraid this is unknown until the day itself, and even if it's known, it can change even at the very last time.

Good luck!

OK maybe it could/should have been done earlier, but let's recognize that efforts are made to correct these unacceptable breakdowns.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

When I buy a flight ticket, I also get asked to rent a car and make a hotel reservation. Does that mean I should rent a car in case the bus I would take goes on strike, or make a hotel reservation in case my backpack containing my tent doesn't arrive? No, those are just related options, related to ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Thank you Passenger for your explanation. I knew that I could count on you on that. @Stij, If you book a holiday, flight ticket or what ever, they always ask you if you want to buy this extra travel insurance. So this is not new but already for decades. So why it is now such a surprise and why it h...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Dear Stij, You really think that the airport is leaning backwards? The airport, together with the manufacturer, are solving the problem. The issue with those very busy months now is that a testing period is not that obvious. So it has to be done when it is calmer during the day or night. Regarding ...

So sad to see there were again giant problems at BRU on saturday. Now there is an operational problem every week or so. If not a strike of fire brigade or skeyes or baggage handlers or customs or immigration officers, it is technical or software problem. Or something else. For me the management of ...
