Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Flew SN to Rome this weekend.
Both flights LF over 90%.
On return flight to BRU yesterday, quite a lot of African destinations passengers

Really wonder how much money they are losing with this pandemic.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Question: If we book with SN (for December) and there's a covid peak at destination, do you get refunded when you cancel the flight? Or not?
Thanks.
