Can anyone tell me if this is actually a direct flight? I have seen conflicting information mentioning train rides to CDG or a short landing in FRA on this route out of BRU. What is the actual situation?
I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.

Quoting Slz396 (Reply 2): As far as I understood it, the flight has a triangular pattern, meaning it routes:
depending the day, so you can have a non-stop between BRU and ADD on both segments if you pick the right days of the week.
That doesn't seem to match current ET schedules. They operate ADD-CDG-BRU 3 times a week and ADD-FRA-BRU 3 times a week. The flights return via the same routing so BRU has no nonstops in either direction.
Quoting Vasu (Reply 3): Is it possible to fly only CDG-BRU or BRU-FRA on ET?
They don't seem to sell local traffic on those sectors, at least it's not in Amadeus.

Both statements by Viscount724 are correct. Also, worth mentioning that Brussels Airlines places its code on all of ET's flights to BRU, while Lufthansa places its code on the 3 flights into and out of FRA.
It should be interesting to see how things work out once/if demand grows further as a result of the code shares and requires an increase in capacity.
