Why not start from Brussels and be member of OW ?
SN is killed by LH, why not another solution for BRU ?

I like the way you think. Well, we know from fact that BRU was too greedy to lure KF. Not sure if IAG has interest in setting up competition in their backyard, esp. KF is geared towards long haul.

If Flightradar24.com is correct, none of the four ABB A343's is operating this trade mission.

And should be better to fly Air Belgium with the belgian flag, than with Hifly.

It is not the HiFly A340-300 that is flying for that trade mission to China: 5K-630 is heading 180° south:
