    wow nice new route, always good to have more transatlantic options on star. I wonder when they'll get fares loaded only all the GDSes.

    I'm curious how SN will market and implement their long haul J product since they mention it's a "refurbished cabin".

    Ask and ye shall receive :)

    They just announced details on their cabins. Looks like the J seats will be fully flat. With SWISS also going fully flat, lets hope that Lufthansa and Austrian start moving in that direction too.

    And in addition to the external cameras, they are also featuring a view from the cockpit :cool:

    I saw the A330 aircraft sitting in ZRH on the 7th... so I'm assuming I'll book the inaugural if there's going to be a SN DO to launch this route in BRU or something if there's any SN Fanboys out there...

    I'm looking at taking this flight in August. I'm wondering whether there will be any sales? An introductory price, maybe?

    edited to add: Miles & More members can earn 25% additional award miles on this flight. Register on the M&M website, and fly before 31 August.

    Brussels Airlines Inaugural flight SN501 BRU-JFK June 1, 2012

    Flew Brussels Airlines inaugural flight SN501 from Brussels to New York today. I was seated on the first row in economy class (14D). Quite exhausted now, not from the flight, but from queuing at JFK immigration (2,5 hours)! My flight back (SN502 JFK-BRU) is on Sunday. Will post full review early next week. Here are some pictures of today's flight:
