Re: Brussels Airlines introduces one-way fares at 39 euro

And now it is waiting for the first ultra smart booking platform, which, when for example requesting a return flight from Brussels to Rome, will give you the best possible rate by mixing airlines, as for example outbound on SN, return on FR...

Re: Brussels Airlines a Flemish company?

My gosh does it really matter? It's just again a politician wanting to cause a stir . As far as I'm concerned the Belgian flag still prides on the planes and everyone speaks 3 or more languages which of course include French AND Dutch ;) I'm not agree with this statement !!!
