It's a bit embarrassing to see that an airline is soo close to another, already existing brand (although it's a totally different market). I won't speak about a 'big booh' though it is an unconvenient story for Brussels Airlines and/or the design company involved. Maybe Brussels Airlines saw and liked the BEA logo and wanted a same brandsymbol created? Don't know the real background story.
