Sorry but if you have 2 airplanes and 4 flights a week no way should there be 2 days without a flight... specially on Friday Saturday out of Belgium or no weekend flight out of China...

And on the day they open the website for tickets the website is down...

Higher price because return is the next day, otherwise prices are very sharp.

To be fair, you should compare the two airlines at the same dates!

Last year, at the end of June, I paid 455€ for Brussels to HKG in mid-September with British Airways.
I was expecting the same price with Air Belgium but it’s 560€ for the same trip.
Also, they charge 25€ for seat selection when BA charges 16€.
A bit disappointing.

Last year..... this year you will have to pay around 650 with BA.

Why would it increase so much ?
Offer and demand. Market conditions.

They should offer a guaranteed empty seat next to you for a smal surcharge, 550 for two seats would be a bargain.

There is no EU 261/2004 tax.
Same for their "Fuel surcharge", which is also shown as part of "Taxes": it's an own surcharge, with no legislation ordering them do so. Hence it's no tax but a surcharge.

Reminds me to an old discussion here about another carrier, based at Brussels. Artificially lowering the amount "Fare" and thus artificually increasing the amount "Taxes and surcharges".

Now that Air Belgium has opened its ticket sales to HKG, I tried to do a random check of ticket fares for flights from Belgium to Hong Kong (or Shenzhen) with AB, HU and CX when leaving on 30APR18 (Air Belgium's inaugural flight) and returning on 03MAY18. Air Belgium ex CRL is the inaugural flight.

Air Belgium
2018 04 03 - BRU HKG - 03.jpg
Cathay Pacific
2018 04 03 - BRU HKG - 02.jpg
Hainan Airlines
2018 04 03 - BRU HKG - 01.jpg
I know this is only a random check, for a given return flight, but it gives an indication of ticket prices between the three airlines for that specific date range and flights. HU's outbound flight ex BRU is on 1MAY18 since I opted for direct flights only.

Best regards,
Ivan
