Any updates on GDS?
This was one of the issues causing AB to delay their first flight.

I heard during the inaugural flight that negotiations were progressing.

Could a moderator move the non-relevant messages elsewhere on the forum.

Any news on a third plane for Air Belgium ?

Strange notice on Air France flight info, when I ask information on AF-977 12 June:
https://www.airfrance.be/BE/nl/local/re ... DesVols.do
"Flight canceled due to operational constraints".
01:35 Douala - KAMEROEN Douala (DLA)
09:06 Charles de Gaulle (CDG)
Geannuleerd

(my language setting there is Belgium - Dutch)

OO-ABA positionned from CRL to CDG around noon, probably to do AF-926 to Libreville (ETA 13h35):

ABA went to CDG to replace ABB today.

ABB will come back at Charleroi due to a technical problem which can't be solved at Libreville (IFE, electrical issue?). Eta today 19:20 if I remember it well...

ABB seems to be at Libreville...

OO-ABA is currently flying to LBV. STA 1930, ETA 1955.
She will return this evening as AF977 STD 2220, STA 0630 at CDG.

Dust off the pillows, fold the blankets and RTB to CRL in time to fly KF851 STD 1430.

Nice fleet utilization.
;)

I noticed ad posters promoting Air Belgium flights to Hong Kong (where else?) in a bus shelter today.

Guys, they are peppered around Brussels.

Does anyone know what the load factor for the other flights are these days?

The flights are still bookable on the web site of Air France, and Air Belgium is still mentioned after 20 June.

Maybe not yet updated but there was just something like Avaaz do, sorry I can't find the word haha, that a person shared on my fan group, and she said later that AF won't use anymore AB. So I'm still searching for any confirmation, and customer care of AF just takes a loooot of time,something like 3-4 days to have an answer in French or English, that's why I tried in Spanish, really faster but there's no one to answer now #RIP

Not really professional to not double check their posts and make a typo on their one and only destination..

In my fangroup I had someone who has "news"...
But I think they are totally fake, and then someone told me in a comment that flights from 20 June were not operated by AB anymore...

I am still searching for any confirmation, but AF just replied me in Spanish, they told me to directly see with Air Belgium...

I won't contact AB now but their CEO sent this :

And I still have no news of what's true and what's false...
