The entertaiment was fine and the crew were polite
1,The food was bad. I was unable to eat. Simple food would have worked. I chose fish but hardly ate since it tasted bad. Additionally I am allergic to diary products and was not given a chance to express this when purchasing the ticket so I arrived in Rome extremely hungry. I ate at the airport on arrival in Rome,
2, There was no toiletries bag handed out i.e toothpaste and socks to keep us warm.
3. Was surprised that the food was on sale Brussels to Rome. Abidjan to Brussels was free food then mid flight rules changed and the food was on sale on the last leg of the flight.
Good flight schedules to where I need to go in West Africa. On time generally. Leg room is average or better.
The Brussels/Lufthansa economy thinly padded seats are brutal. I was awoken to a sore behind over and over. You can feel the crosswise metal rod underneath. I sympathize with lack of catering options coming out of developing countries, but the economy meal for the red-eye return to Brussels was hard to swallow, too.
Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
Drinks trolley too slow, considering passengers on most European flights are paying for their drinks. Quick drinks trolley with the food trolley coming along behind would be much better, and a lot more happy passengers, One and a half hours,approx., from take-off when the food and drinks trolley, from the front, reached Row 10. Not good Willie!
You should board by seat numbers on European flights. Aisles too narrow on 320's (and equivalent), with passengers putting quite large carry-on luggage in the overhead lockers and slowing everything down plus discomfort to passengers already seated.
Otherwise a very pleasant an enjoyable flight. when the doors closed.
Crew were polite. Due to late BHX departure VCE connecting passengers were given barcode pass for fast lane thru security & passport control. BRU huge & a bit confusing. esp for arrivals from GB connecting to Italy. Lots of escalators and walking.
Brussels airlines were fine. However, in future I would avoid using BRU as a connecting point unless more time between flights.
I've love Kayak for many years. Booked my ticket directly with Kayak this year. Great service with timely travel updates.
First time flying Brussels Airlines. Great planes, wonderful staff and service. Would absolutely recommend
The toilet was very dirty from ouagadougou to abidjan as if it was not cleaned at the stop over in ouagadogou. Please keep it clean. Flying economy is not a crime to be punished by dirty toilet.
The food was not good I arrived home very hungry.
We were not given the blankets yet they were on board. I thought this was a given.
