Abnormalities at BRU / ANR / LGG / CRL / OST

Post by LX-LGX » 27 Jan 2009, 12:35

2 flights from Northern Africa to BRU have been diverted - apparently to Lille - and many other fligths are delayed.

TU726 - ETA 11h20 - from Monastir/Djerba: diverted (? to Lille ?)
8A448 - ETA 11h30 - from Nador/Tangier: diverted (? to Lille?)

Is fog the problem ?

Does there always have to be a new topic opened about the BRU flights for every single day?? It is getting annoying.

Moderator, can you change this?

Perhaps it's better with this topic title - usable for all flight abnormalities.

Just drove 50km on the highway, it's very strange this time, there are cloud of fog only in some places, but it is extremely dense.

On Teletekst, ISTR a BEE flight from Manchester diverted to Ostend - diverted from BRU, assumedly?

28/01/2008 : SN453 (A330) to Nairobi/Bujumbura is announced as BRU-BRU.

Flight info from Brussels Airport says ETD was 10h40, but the flight was delayed till 11h40 - and apparently returned to the gate at 11h52.

Correct ?

@ Saratoga

Don't be annoyed. Just don't open that post if you are uninterested in movements. You have the choice!!!

ps abnormalities sounds like bodily disfunction. Perhaps unusual might be a better choice of word

No, BEE is the ICAO code for FlyBe, and they diverted their MAN-BRU to OST.

If I mean SN I'll write SN.
If I write BEE I mean BEE.

so using the IATA code for one airline and the ICAO for an other is keeping it easy ?
i guessed the "BEE flight" was referring to BEE-LINE but thats just me making it too difficult then ;)

I thought my dislike for IATA-codings to be well-known, perhaps even legendary... but in this case I must admit I was lazy, I just copied the BEE from the teletekst screen.

The delays I saw both in FRA and BRU this morning (mostly to LHR) were quite substantial, sometimes 4 or 5 hours :shock:

Surprisingly my flight into BRU was more than on time (LH 4572 from FRA), despite the snow in BRU (the runway was still more or less white when we touched down around 10am). I was surprised to see quite a number of de-icing trucks on their way but nobody was trying to move the snow from the runways or taxiways - was it not enough snow for this?

Two weeks ago (Monday 27th January), JAF103 to Montego Bay / Puerto Plata left at 17h35 - ETD was 06h05.

Today (Monday 9th February): same flight, same route : same delay. JAF103 with ETD 06h05 is now announced as delayed till 16h00.

Is this Murphy's law, bad luck or is it because of late arrival of the aircraft, ex. due to a back up for another TUI carrier?
