    City Jet and Brussels Airlines absolutely hate these Superjets. They can’t wait to get rid of them because Sukhoi sucks at supporting them and they’re constantly having technical issues.

    Insel Air in the Carribbean (flying out of Curacao) I believe have some Fokker 50s. But I wouldn't wish flying with them on my worst enemy!

      +Kent Not surprised. An absolute disaster of an airline!

    If you ever want to get nostalgic and travel on some Fokker70 or 100's come back down to Perth , Western Australia , we have about 40 of them based here , a very common jet in our skies still. We lost our Fokker50's about 2 years ago:(

    Your Videos are grat, but could you remove the music when you talking. Is hard to understand.

    Great, but LOUD music. Had to replay 6:55 to make out what you were saying!

    Couldn't you technically just have sit around in Antwerp and take the train that came from Amsterdam and just not use the first part of your ticket? Or just have taken another train from Antwerp to Brussels?

      +Noel Philips: inflight Video Ok, that's a good point. But I guess if you would have sat that time in Brussels (possibly in the cold or in a crowded terminal) then it's better driving in a train.

      Possibly, but I didn't want to risk it. Strictly speaking, you miss your first sector and they cancel all the remaining sectors. Thalys are linked with Brussels Airlines electronically and they do scan your ticket when you board - so potentially not taking it could mean that you get denied boarding in Brussels.

    What did you mean when the aircraft ‘buckled’ a little bit when they opened the cargo door?

    The SSJ100 has a bit of a reputation. Interjet, which is a Mexican airline, pulled the airliner from service and Cityjet aren’t too impressed either. However, Adria Airways will be putting some in service in the near future.

      The most trabled thing in SSJ is France made "hot" part of engines. And they (French) can't keep up with spare parts for it. Intentionally or not.

      real George Sukhotin That’s because new parts are readily available in Russia and Putin encouraged Aeroflot to buy ‘homemade’ aircraft.

    What was the point of going to Amsterdam and then back to Belgium?

      I explained it but maybe not clear enough :) BRU-BHX on the SuperJet was £400. A train from AMS to BRU and then the flight was £100. So by getting a train up to AMS and back it saved me around £300.

      +Noel Philips: inflight Video problem is there is much very old Soviet era planes still flying around world with many accidents, but new planes like this more upcoming can't be that bad.Btw that interior of plane is equippt and maintance by company...

    • Noel Philips: inflight Video

      Russian aircraft for the most part are very sturdy and very well made. The Tu-154 for instance, very smooth, comfortable aircraft.
