The whole story of cancellation of NW is to my feeling not based to the shortage of crew . NW is comming out of the bankrupcy and shortage of cash money . BRU flight does still ask some cash and they dont have . Better to cancel rather to go too far in red .

Yes indeed , they fly to BRU , I think at about 3 times a week with B747
They closed the station and send their passengers over LHR Since that moment they increased the number of pax from Belgium .

Sofar as I remember they stopped after Thai and before SQ .

The airlines might be good or bad but if the aeronautic administration in the concerned countries are corrupt , incompetent , it can also be a base to ban all airlines of concerned countries .
