Albeit not one of Europe's major airports, is Brussels a specially profitable destination for European Union carriers? I am asking because of the huge governmental structure (bureaucracy) stationed in Brussels, most of them expats.
Is this a meaningfull traveling public?
Is there a significant exodus on weekends?
Do these public employees fly on high "premium economy" or business fares?

I used to work for sabena and the majority of pax checking in for mid week flights were business men/women either stopping in BRU or carrying on to other euro airports / US airports but a lot did stay in BRU, mainly the day returners, i.e early morning out, late night back...
interestingly, the early morning flights had a heck of a lot of pax carrying onward to the African destinations sabena used to serve.
The weekends were mainly tourists on cheap tickets travelling onwards...
