What is the origin of OO-RMV? It was not there during the old Sabena days.

I have flown twice to LPA, but I could not tell you where is the best spotting place. It is a wide open airport and it shouod not be too difficult to find a nice spot.

The busiest days are Saturday and Sunday.

Even flights above 4000 are codeshares. From 4000 to 4999, code-shares with SWISS (Basel and Zurich).

From 8000 to 8999, codeshares with AA.

It seems that Sobelair reintroduced an old colour scheme rather than the last one inherited from Sabena!

It is really sad: SQ had been flying to Brussels since 1979 (!) and has been the longest serving long-haul airline in BRU. I also remember when it was possible to fly BRU-JFK on SQ. BRU and AMS were alternatively stopovers on the SIN-JFK route. SQ had the first 744s in BRU. This was a damn competit...

I'm amazed that SQ also does not codeshare anymore on the LH flights from and to FRA. Wouldn't it be logic that they still allow you to buy tickets to SIN on an SQ code via FRA? Well, it is exactly the reverse that happens: all the flights from BRU to FRA are LH and only LH, and the SQ flights from...
