One of the A310-300s will be based at Oujda Les Anglades and operate from there to Brussels and Paris Orly. The other one will be based at Nador Arwi and operate from Nador to Amsterdam Schiphol, Brussels, Dusseldorf International and Frankfurt International and from Tangiers Boukhalef to Amsterdam and Brussels.
It is surprising how quickly some popular models become rare birds. ( in passenger lay out
) The A310 , the MD-11, B727, B707 + DC-8, DC-10 (
) , Tri Star. And before we will realise it, we will see very few MD80 at BRU.
And how many B747 still visit BRU ? Once the "mothership" of Sabena, now a pretty seldom appearance. Am I right that there is not 1 B747 anymore as passenger airplane doing regular service to BRU ?
Same story with the A340. Not sure, but have all operators of the A340 to BRU not changed to another type?
I wonder if somebody could forward a statistic of arrivals per airplane type. I guess that it will be dominated mainly by B737 + A320 (90% together?) , A330 + B777 for long haul, some Embraers, the BAE's, B767 , a Fokker , a B757 and a Saab of OLT. And that will be it I guess. I don't even dare to mention birds from the USSR times anymore. ( < Aeroflot, Balkan Air, LOT, Tarom, Malev, CSA and Interflug )
Does it mean I am getting too old , or do I have to see it in the positive way of "progress and rationalisation" ?
