BRU 21/11/2018

Post by AarjenP » 21 Nov 2018, 11:52

Hi,

Just a question about SN9901: https://www.flightradar24.com/BEL9901/1ea0429e
What is the reason for an A330 (OO-SFT) going to Lissabon?

Error from FR or going there for maintenance/other reason?

Was at departure fast at a high altitude, so departed empty?

Thanks!

Could be for a maintenance check (C or D)

meanwhile OO-SCW is operating SN501/502 BRU-JFK-BRU (the A340 is scheduled until Saturday 24/11)

Runway in use and possible future runway selection can be found on www.batc.be
Don't take it as gospel, though, check other sources like Flightradar24 or the likes.
It also never hurts to take a look at the weather forecast, this will give a rather nice indication which runways to expect.

Not directly, but if you look at the flightpaths of inbound/outbound traffic, you can make a (very) educated guess at what configuration is in use. (not only for BRU, by the way.)
