Re: Abnormalities in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

Since it was pretty much a direct return to a suitable airfield within a decent range, I'd say forced landing (noodlanding) is a pretty correct description here. They didn't enter the hold, but realised quite soon they wanted to be on the ground ASAP. By the way, I think I'm probably the last person...

Once more: it was an emergency landing, since emergency was declared.

"Fuel leak" was also mentioned at VRT Radio news this morning - along with their usual nonsense of "emergency landing" ...
No nonsense, both are correct.

Re: BRU 12/02/18

No clue, but I saw OO-JDL was moved from TUI hangar to BEL hangar earlier today. I can't tell whether that's related or not.

I don’t have any problem acknowledging my former colleagues are capable of making faults, that’s exactly what my last sentence tells you.

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2018

I'm not trying to downplay anything, I'm just trying to remind everyone that there are two (or even more) sides to a story. The side we've seen in the newspaper/website may be true, but it may as well have been grossly overstated, or somewhere in between. Knowing my former colleagues, I find it quit...

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2018

While the story might be true, and it probably is, it might as well be exaggerated by the passengers in the article, that's why I'd like to have the other side of the story as well. Just as an example, they may have initially agreed to switch seats, and only afterwards noticed that the seats they sw...

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2018

Having lived the cabin crew side of things, allow me to say this: there’s always multiple sides to a story. We’ve heard the side from the disgruntled passengers, but without counterstory by the crew or passengers who apparently refused to move, there’s really no saying whether what they say is true,...

They don’t always perform surveys in the visible light spectrum, though. OO-GPS often performs survey flights, not only GPS calibration flights.

Some kind of land survey seems more likely.

Judging by that text, I’d say “asked” is slightly euphemistic. It’s not like they have a choice.

Re: Lufthansa in 2018

In my view the 'new' LH livery is a dull and boring one. If it would be a cost saving measure by leaving out the more lively yellow,why didn't they go for the all metal fuselage like in the past and only paint the tail? That would for sure save a lot more money. That wouldn’t work with the new gene...

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

It seems to me that we are, however, so cautious with aviation safety. Lately another company was removed a right of exploitation for having used, during a take-off, the entire runway before flight. In Colombia, if I remember. Here one can leave from an airport with a runway too short. I'm surprise...

I'm still hoping they released this image in order to get everybody to think it was leaked, and the real reveal will be something more inspired...
