Brussels Airlines, Business Class - Airbus A 320: London Heathrow to Brussels.

Sun Sep 11, 2016 1:06 pm

I am on my way back home after spending the weekend in London. to be honest, I am not really quite sure why, but for some reason I figured it might be a good idea to give Brussels Airlines a try. In hindsight, it wasn't really worth it. While there is nothing obviously wrong with Brussels Airlines, you somehow cannot help but feel that they are one of those airlines that nobody would really miss if they suddenly decided to shut down.

But one has to look on the positive side. This trip with SN allowed me to sample Heathrow's new and enhanced Terminal 2 for the first time, and I must say I am quite impressed.

Interesting report, thanks again for taking the time to write and share it. Brussels Airlines is not an airline I have ever considered flying with - there just isn't much about them which makes them attractive as a traveler.

The meal looks...interesting. Is that half a bowl full of hummus?

Weird meal. That usually is a starter and as you say you eat it with bread.

Thanks for the report. The meal does look very strange. I know its a very short flight but surely they would better offering sandwiches or coffee and cake.

I use Brussels Airlines quite often, as they normally have good prices between Bristol UK and Budapest (via Brussels of course) which is a route I often travel. I've never bothered to pay extra for J class or try to upgrade using mileage, since on a short trip there seems no point. I've ever been impressed or unimpressed as such with their services; other than the fact that they are, generally on time, there is normally nothing remarkable.

I dunno. Maybe Belgians would miss it? Perhaps passengers to/from African destinations considering SN's extensive African network? No offense but that was a rather silly thing to say. And what kind of amazing experience where you expecting on a short-haul flight?
