Why are the prices to the UK destinations that high from Brussels?
Except for MAN, because Ryanair flies from CRL.

There are many ex pats here in Belgium and many tourist cities such as Brughes and Ghent have loads of British tourists.
Why doesn't JET2.com, Easyjet or others offer a low cost link to Belgium?

No competition always means higher fares.

I noticed a small difference in the security video the voice changed it's not this famous British guy anymore? (I don't remember his name)
Flew with SN from BRU to FRA and back yesterday (Tomorrowland). The safety video was still narrated by Ray Cokes during both flights.

Best regards,

I was on a long haul flight with a new interior OO SFE I'm sure it was another voice if somebody can confirm it is only a detail obviously.
Hasta la victoria siempre.

The new interior has some new safety features, e.g. a shoulder strap for the business class seats (similar to a car seatbelt). So for those aircraft, the safety video had to be updated. Don't know why Ray Cokes didn't do it again, maybe he was unavailable.

I'm not bashing just wondering but the last two trips I have the impression that Brussels Airlines employees are tired in any case very difficult to ask questions in general they have so little patience!
I do not feel that they are happy to work for this company and we feel it as a passenger.
Maybe there are understaffed or is there something else?
May there be a Brussels Airlines employee who can confirm this general impression?
Thanks
Maybe they are fed up indeed, because you keep on asking them "questions in general".

And when your above findings are true (quod non): why on earth do you keep flying with them??? About everything there sucks, you tell us three times a day. There isn't one thing, one issue that you haven't complained about.

Ryanair used to fly Ostend to Stansted. I never understood why they didn't fly to Manchester or Liverpool instead. The Channel Tunnel may have a lot to do with Britons not flying to Belgium more (and vice versa).

Of course, my company f.e. only uses Eurostar for UK trips. From London we take a domestic train or a taxi to our destination. Only if we have to be very close to a mostly rather cheap airport (f.e. MAN) we can consider to fly. A pitty from a personal point of view being aviation enthusiast.

Eurostar is not cheap and UK railcompanies are even more expensive.

As for flying to and from the UK, its not that far and can easily put in a schedule.
