On my side, like for most of use, 2020 was a very poor year. Being in the category of people at risk, I stopped flying as soon as the coronavirus hit Belgium and Europe. I had to cancel many flights that were duly booked, and I am still waiting for some refunds and for opportunities to use vouchers received in compensation (after I am vaccinated though).

Thus, here is the small list of my 2020 flights:

Flown:

BRU-MXP FR 738 EI-FZL
MXP-BRU SN 319 OO-SSO
CRL-BRI FR 738 EI-EVI
BRI-BGY FR 738 EI-DLE
BGY-CRL FR 738 EI-FRX
BRU-WAW LO E75 SP-LIA
WAW-BRU LO 738 SP-LWE (NextGen Airways livery)
BRU-LIS TP 320 CS-TNT
LIS-FAO TP 321 CS-TJF (changed from A320)
FAO-LIS TP 319 CS-TTO
LIS-BRU TP 320 CS-TNW
BRU-ANR JNL ER4 PH-DWA (demo flight, the only "Covid" flight)

Cancelled:

BRU-RIX BT 223
RIX-TXL BT 223 cancelled and replaced by RIX-SXF FR 738, also cancelled
TXL-BRU SN 319 cancelled and replaced by SXF-BRU FR 738 (not cancelled, but unable to catch it, thus not refunded)
BRU-MAD IB 320
MAD-BRU IB 359 supposed to join the avgeek crowd
CRL-SKG FR 738 (avgeek trip)
SKG-CRL FR 738 (avgeek trip)

This year was also very quiet on my side, no surprise. Only 9 sectors and only one new airport (BTS), and a lot of cancelations. Last flight was just before the lockdown, I don't have any plans for the foreseeable future...

For me 2020 was a good year as far as flights went. I had booked my flights in December 2019 before the pandemic started and it was touch and go whether or not we'd get anywhere but thankfully all my booked flights (not very many of them) went ahead.

KL1276 EDI-AMS 737-700 PH-BGG "Koningseider"/"King Eider". (Business Class)
KL1363 AMS-WAW Embraer 190 - PH-EZE.
LO3843 WAW-WRO Q400 SP-EQD
KL1364 WAW-AMS Embraer 190 - PH-EZN
KL1289 AMS-EDI 737-700 PH-BCA "Flamingo".
Sabena and Sobelair - gone but never forgotten.
