Do we have any info on when Air Belgium's A340 will leave BRU for the positioning to AMS? Should be around lunchtime at the latest I presume?

Best regards,

The first flight was indeed communicated for 16 April, but that information was premature. The correct date of the first flight will be communicated next week.

Online sales are due to start very soon, a press release will be issued today.

Dagonline.nl has more: https://www.dagonline.nl/suriname/air-b ... aribo-uit/

If there is a double crew the flight will immediately fly back to Amsterdam, if not a minimum rest of 10 hours is scheduled for the crew.

10hours... come on, the rest of the crew have to be at least as long as the duty time, add to it all the fligh time zone crossed. They need much more than 10h rest.

And even if there were a double crew, the crew in positioning would be in duty so they couldn’t fly back directly unless a crew has been positioned yesterday or before with another flight
