Traffic to Kinshasa disrupted after Cargolux blocking runway

Heard that traffic to Kinshasa is disrupted because of a Cargolux blocking the runway, don't know if it ran off the runway or just got stuck in the mud.

Somebody got more information?

Re: Lufthansa targetting Brussels Airlines

Different sources mention a b.air job security for the next 2 years, but this weekend this has been denied. This is a strange statement and this somehow worries me.

My guess is that originally you had to fly on a RJ100 where 18F exists, the day after flight planning must have rescheduled that RJ100 on another route with higher loads so they gave you a RJ85 where 18F doesn't exist ;-) I shouldn't worry too much about this problem ;-)

Some people in this world should realise that an open communication to the outside world stops lots of rumours and gossips, especially in the aviation industry.

Strike will contain:

no blfex bligth service
cabin crew will be asked to wear the old uniform iso the new one
10' delay on every 30'rotation

Good action by the unions! At least the passengers are not to be kept hostage!
