I have to repeat myself: I do not give the anti's more ammunition. At this moment, they have already more then enough arguments to bring the airport in serious trouble. Although I totally disagree with their drive and their aim, I also read their arguments. And a few indeed make sense. Like those very early morning and very late night departures by ERJ-190's. I'm not going to tell why it's a problem (Freund hört mitt), but it would be better on long term when the airport and Jetair/Jetairfly would give in there.ironspan wrote:To: Passenger
Thanks for your comments, I am fully aware about their strategy and their relentless attempts to attack the airport, using sometimes very 'questionable' methods (the majority of the registered complaints were submitted by 4 persons...). Hence my surprise to see that on this forum some members actually show sympathy and are proposing measures which would kill ANR-operations. Even if the eco fundamentalists are quite professional, we should not give them more ammunition.
I tried to defend ANR's interest, by pointing out facts and show that arguments used were not consistent. Everybody is free to vote on the party he/she selects, but I would expect that 'luchtzak'-forum members would at least be pro-aviation and pro-airports. There are many other forums where people can complain about noise
I don't like the suggestion that I am not pro aviation and pro airport. I am realistic. I look at facts. Take a look at the enemy on http://www.vatuvblog.be and you will have to agree that the airport has to defend itself with better arguments then "the airport was there first" and/or "the E313 makes a lot more noise too".
