Re: BRU 06/07/2014

Correct, but according to Brussels Airlines it will be Monday:

The flight from Sao Paulo depends on the results of the Red Devils:

In case the Red Devils are eliminated in the 1/4 final in Brasilia: 06 July 2014, departure in Sao Paulo at 20h45 local time - arrival in Brussels at 07 July, 13h30

Re: Looking back @ 2013

We had an interesting year: 3 new airports: DOH, DXB and IAD. 1 new airline: Qatar Airways 1 new aircraft: B773 (DXB - DOH) But the absolute highlight of 2013 was our IAD - BRU flight in C with Brussels Airlines. Booking in C is a bit too expensive for us, but we had enough miles to upgrade so could...

Re: How to find upgradable tickets to US?

The Lufthansa site is the best way to book your ticket, like b720 said. You have a clear overview of which fares are upgradable. Then you can do the upgrade yourself online and of course the moment you've done this, you have guaranteed seats in C.

Nice present btw :)

Re: From Washington to Brussels on Brussels Airlines in C cl

We chose to upgrade our return flight IAD - BRU from Y to C, and the experience was amazing indeed. Almost exactly as described in the above blogpost. I am happy we chose Brussels Airlines, and don't get me wrong: Y was very nice, great food and the seats/IFE are above current standards. But the cre...

Re: From Washington to Brussels on Brussels Airlines in C cl

Clearly shows the professionalism of the Belgian crew on the long haul sectors (especially in business, but also in Economy), something which has always been one of the strenghts of SN's long haul offer. My BRU - JFK flight with SN was rather disappointing (Y class). Cabin crew was not friendly at ...
