Hi everyone, this time my adventure is in SN. We arrived in BRU at 3:20 to our flight to MAD. This time the a/c was an RJ 100. We boarded the plane at 4:30pm, and the plane taked off at 4:41pm.
When the in-flight service began, they offered me a sandwich, for my taste the ugliest sandwich ever in my live. This was with a Pepsi.
For me, the worst flight ever. This had no, TV's, no audio entertainment, and no blankets, no pillows, only a boring in-flight magazine.
When we arrived to MAD, our bags were the lasts ones, also bad for my experience in this airline.
In conlcusion, this was the worst flight EVER, without nothing.

This trip report is most likely bogus. For the reasons mentioned above, but most of all because the flight doesn't exist. The closest to a 4.30 p.m. departure I could find is a flight that leaves at 4 p.m. and that flight is served with an IBERIA A320. The next SN/IB flight (with SN RJ85) only leaves at 6.40 p.m.

Fokker50, again, couldn't you have maid an extra effort to make this "so horrible" experience to be at least a little more exciting/interesting/fun to read?
I agree with all the replies above people. I've heard a good number of interesting things about SN in the past, from very near people who have flown on them.
On a short hop like that it is extremely idealistic to expect an all luxury service, specially knowing what kind of pattern are almost all european carriers adopting. The chances in other airlines of the region to recieve anything at all are close to none.
Anyway, if you really did have this experience with SN, I hope next time their service can reach your standards; but, at any rate, this trip report seems no more credible than the others. Pretty suspicious.

I think people invent trip reports from time to time.
I know for sure and believe me that on all RJ or A319 served by SN Brussels Airlines doing the BRU-MAD flight hot meals are served and blankets as well as pillows are distributed but this only on request and I repeat only on request of the pax.
As from the Pepsi, it is totally wrong SNBA only serves Coca-Cola on board. And if someone like to buy a Pepsi in the airport to drink on the aircraft it's his choice but he don' have to mention it like this in a trip report.
By the way I don't see why Pepsi should be worse the Coca-Cola. It's just another brand. You could offense the people working for Pepsi by saying such a strange things.
What about the luggages. What Sabena690 tells his correct, there always have to a first and a last luggage to be put on the belt. The same for the boarding of an aircraft.
Can you imagine 400 people boarding a B744 at the same time it would be a mess at the entrance of the aircraft.
When you go to a shop or a bank or whatever you also have to wait until it's your turn to be served. That's the way it is.
DEAL with it!!!!!!!!!!
Otherwise fly First Class and even then you cannot always be the first to be served as if they are 2 pax in First and the hostess serves the other pax first imagine it's like the end of the world.
So Fokker 50. I hope that when you will ever fly SN Brussels Airlines it will be better than on the wet dream you had the night before you wrote this report.

Well Fokker50, if you are taking the time (if writing three lines ever took time at all ) to write and post a trip report, it's obviously because, tacitly or not, you are waiting to see what others think about it, and to share your experience.
Next time, try to be more detailed and take the time to actually write a good report, and even more if its a report that's going to be read by more people around the world, not just colombians. Remember that the first thing that you are told before you give the final click to post is "remember to be detailed in your post", thing that you are not doing.
Don't waste your time until you can come up with something real and interesting, and earn yourself the bashing of many people who were expecting to read a mainly objective opinion (colored with subjective spots obviously) about their flagcarrier.

About pillows and blankets: yesterday I just MUC-BRU on LH in a small Canadair CRJ-200. My wife had cold feet and she told the stewardess, who came back immediately with a blanket. So even small planes in Europe carry blankets and pillows.

I haven't personally tried SN, but from a report of a friend who flown BCN-BRU in a SN A319, I put them in the top of european carriers I've tried (IB, LH, AF, JK, BA) full meal (now only in BA), airshow (never in short haul), and friendly service. I've never had pillows and blankets without requesting them.
