Aeroflot adds one daily flight to Moscow and will fly thrice-daily to Sheremetyevo from Winter 2018-2019.

Brussels Airlines remains at one daily flight to Domodedovo. A missed opportunity?
A few years ago (2-3?) SN added a second flight 3 or 4 days a week, with the stated intention to go double daily. It never materialized.
Is Sheremetyevo a better choice than Domodedovo when you have no connecting code-share?
I think that SU relies heavily on transfer traffic.

I used recently SN to Moscow and flights were both time (almost) full: BRU-DME was around 85%, returning I was even upgraded to business because overbooking in economy and completely full on departure ...

I fly frequently into Moscow. SVO is a breeze, faster immigration, spacier, cleaner, more choice of resto, etc ... Faster connection to the city with the Aero-express. DME is much further away, cramped, slow immigration, just a dump ...

:arrow: Anyone having reliable informations about Qatar Airways ops out of BRU ?

From December 15th 2018 until March 31st 2019 the A359 seem to operate again, the 77W would be back for the summer season though. Can someone confirm this ? There were no announcements whatsoever, even though it's a product upgrade IMO. :?:

Booking soon in J, and the product is quite outdated on their standards 77W/77L... :roll:

Many thankssss,

Stop at Belgrade to refuel,I presume. Are oilcompanies in BE/GE/... again refusing to supply kerosine to Iranian planes for fear of US sanctions?
