    Thanks for the additional insight :) I have never flown the airline. Let us know how it is please?

    I flew them BRU-ACC a couple years ago and it was pretty nice, even in Y. And I understand they have a new ADVO IFE system now which makes it even better.

    I flew three segments with them in May: BRU-BJM, BJM-BRU (via NBO) and BRU-LHR. My recollection is that the service was good, seats comfortable enough (in Y) decent food and drink on the long flights, seat back IFE system....

    This itinerary is similar: BRU-BJM, KGL-BRU (via EBB), BRU-LHR

    (I'll be flying BJM-KGL on SA in J)

    I'll take notes and file a t/r when I get back in October.

    I flew their predecessor, Sabena (Such a Bloody Experience Never Again!), a fair bit, but that was more than a decade ago, and I think Lufthansa have brought their standards up to a competitive level. I do wonder about the current state of the BRU airport though -- any recent experiences there? YULtide?

    Lounge for non-Schengen to the US is mediocre at best; Sunrise Lounge used for the Africa flights is pretty nice. Haven't been in the Schengen terminal. Otherwise not much to speak of at the airport IMO. Doesn't wow me but also doesn't make me homicidal.

    I agree with Wandering Aramean. There are nicer airports, but there are definitely worse. My recollection was that it was ok in May. Pretty business-like. But I spent only about 2 hours over two visits. There were a few amenities like coffee shops and so on. There was a *A lounge in the African departure area that I didn't use. I'll try to check on it this trip. I really didn't pay a lot of attention in May.

    I flew a Avro regional jet with them a year or two ago BRU-TLV. I agree with Wandering Aramean that the terminal is boring and lounge too. Nonetheless, service was superior to a normal European LCC but not by leaps and bounds. I would compare them to USAirways except with better customer service.

    Miles posted. A 4000 mile trip netted 2000 status miles and 2000 bonus (non-status) from SN.
