Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2021

Sorry if I cannot do more, but I am almost single-handedly handling all the news on this website, and I also have a life next to aviation24.be Sorry Andre, you posted 13 other articles today from which one was about a steam train! Defending the indefensible proves there is more than what meets the ...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2021

Re: Survey: Visual Descent Point

Before any comments are made, could you first then - according to you - explain what is the correct procedure? NPA procedures depend on 2D or 3D approach, where from a procedural point of view we will also refer to DA (yet you mention MDA?) as they are CDFA based. Pure MDA is only used for ie circl...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2021

Most of the time I understand and even support strikes, but in the middle of a pandemic with the possibility of a new, very infectious variant, developing, I don’t think anything can justify a strike. Any action that brings more people together than absolutely necessary will lead to more infections,...

Honestly? Seriously?
Whilst customers are waiting, more than a year, to get their money back, their airline is spending money on rebranding for the 4th or 5th time... You couldn’t make it up, could you?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

Pilot are trained to fly OR a330, OR a320's. You cannot just swap them. For cabin crew, we are all trained on a320 but not everyone fly a330. Beside the certification there are more complex mater in term of rostering. If a crew was suppose to fly in the morning, you can't simply reroster them in th...

Re: booked a flight, not sure if I will arrive back home

Did you buy the trip as one ticket or separate ones?
I don’t see FR offering tickets from AMM to CRL, it looks like you bought two separate tickets hence why they only have to reroute/refund the AMM-BLQ leg.

A rights issue happened yesterday, every share had one right detached, every right plus 3,85€ buys you a new share. More shares means each share is worth less money.

Re: PSG star team lands at Ostend-Bruges Airport for tonight’s game against Club Brugge, but was this charter necessary?

It’s exactly these kind of flights which give aviation a bad image. Boarding 30 min, flight 45 minutes, get into the bus 30 minutes, bus trip to the hotel 30 min in total 2h15 minutes to avoid a bus trip of 3h30 minutes. It’s nothing else than exaggerating to impress and self-worship. These flights,...

Certainly possible, maybe likely by absolutely NOT more than likely.
There are several other abnormalities which require a descent.

If they succeed to do so the EU has no advantage anymore! I hope it will not be possible or the UK will win on all battles!
