Not only in Brussels: after Amsterdam, now also London Gatwick! Release by easyJet:

"Due to a baggage belt failure at Gatwick Airport's North Terminal, like other airlines, we are experiencing delays at bag drop and in the delivery of hold luggage to departing aircraft. This may result in some flights departing without all luggage stowed in the hold.

We are providing regular updates on our website and Flight Tracker https://bit.ly/1qnguUP and strongly recommend all passengers travelling to and from Gatwick Airport today to allow extra time for bag drop due to possible delays.
"

Simultaneously, at Geneva Airport:

"We are currently experiencing a technical breakdown that is affecting baggage check-in. Alternative solutions have been put in place to restore the situation as quickly as possible. Information will be given to you in the registration area. We apologize for any inconvenience."

After this story: Engine of a SmartWings Boeing 737-800 shuts down in-flight, crew continues to Prague for another 2 hours and 20 minutes on remaining engine

https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/smar ... ment-85614

Follow-up: on Sep 13th 2019 The Aviation Herald learned that an internal investigation conducted by Smartwings identified there was no systemic fault, but a crew error. The captain of the flight, at that time head of flight operations of Smartwings, is no longer head of flight operations, his deputy has now taken that position. The captain continues to fly for the airline and maintains privileges as instructor, examiner and TRE. Czechia's CAA is determined to ensure that such a decision is not taken again in the future and pledges very harsh penalties. Surrounding nations also show significant interest in the ongoing investigation, revocations of overflight permits are being discussed.
