We needed different help here in Belgium as the airport ran out of De-Icing fluid, and the shipments come over land usually from France. France stopped trucks due to the horrendous road conditions. So Brussels Airport, even with two of it’s three runways operational, came to a departures stand-still until late yesterday morning when the fluid arrived from Germany. Amazing how everything is so intertwined, you only really notice when the poop hits the fan, and especially as Martyn said, when you are sitting in it yourself and being so horribly affected by it.
