    This is just a guess, but I read today that Brussels will begin daily service from JFK to Brussels sometime after June, 2012. The article also showed the new Business Class seats they will be installing and they look excellent:

    Brussels has a pretty good network throughout Europe. My sense is that when they start selling seats, there will be a large number of Business Class seats available, as there usually are on all new routes. Not sure when that date will be but for those planning award trips to Europe, it may be a good option. We flew UA home from Brussels in December and it is a lovely little airport.

    Using Co.com, I can see there are quite a few Business awards seats available from 6/1 - 6/23.

    Thanks for the heads up. Will definitely keep this on the radar for summer plans to Europe.
