Trends in ground handling

Hi everyone,
I am trying to summarise the key challenges faced by the ground handling sector and wondered if either you would have document(s) to share or remarks to share.
Also, what results are...

Interesting to read that Belgian pilots consider this rwy to be less safe than 25L/25R and request authorities to only require its use on exceptional conditions, e.g. with strong winds from North or...

Highly disappointing & unreliable BA

Maybe this is the opportunity to lash out my long time frustration at BA. Up to the point that I now do the minimum flying to reach the 800 exec points keeping me gold, and then switch back to my...

Pls correct me if I am wrong, but from the threads I get the feeling that the TO distance is virtually the only important parameter, i.e. as long as the a/c can take off within the rwy limits...

HFinn,
I do not want to enter an argument, but here is my rationale:
1) rwy length is 2,900 m
2) calculations @ 70KT or 80 KT fuel load lead to a bit more than 2,900 m (including safety margin to...

BelgianBoy,
Maybe I miss a point, but reading the extract appended, it very much looks to me like the rwy was not really sufficient. It is approximately 2,900 m long & I remember cockpit crews'...

Do not promise & ground-air continuity of service

While it is fair to admit that we--SLF--sometimes may go out of control, airlines should realise that the following are three key reasons why this may happen;
1) The way airlines communicate...

Egyptair's service

I would be grateful for comments about their cabin service, as I am due to fly them between BRU & CAI. E.g. do they serve wine/alcohol on-board, any personal AVOD etc.? Not that I am a big consumer,...

rwy 02/20 irrelevant for today's a/c

In a TV program today, a pilot instructor explained that such rwys were required 20-30 y ago for a/c were not able to sustain heavy crosswinds. Today's a/c are much more performant in this regard,...

I guess the argument is less about whether within feasibility limits than what happens in case something unexpected occurs, and whether rwy 20 was a wise choice... which IMHO I think not...

Still, wouldn't you prefer a longer rwy which would improve your safety envelope?
Obviously, I understand that you have to work within external constraints, such as those from ATC, regulations etc.

Hi! I would love to, but in all honesty, there are 2 camps: pro & against. And I think it is an endless debate.
I just revert to my previous point: today's incident is just a reminder of the risks....

airfoilmod,
suggest you use 25R... much longer & safer for you to use + you won't have to reduce power and/or to turn right just after TO.

Thks for replies on my comment... rwy 20 is the shortest of all rwys at BRU. Planes taking off from there are much lower when reaching inhabited areas. Thus noise is much louder for inhabitants...
