France and Belgium’s banned airlines

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

It strikes me as odd that the lists published by France and Belgium should be mutually exclusive. One would think that they would use similar criteria to decide whether or not an airline was safe, and thus if it’s safe enough to fly over Belgium, then why not over France? And vice-versa? Surely one would expect at least some overlap?

But really should there not have been different lists for Vlaanderen and Wallonie?
