Only 4.5 hrs flight, regular commercial flight. Not crouded at all which was great! But - No entertainment whatsoever. No food or drinks. Even water. I would gladly pay for food, whereas every thing written in the menu wasn't available, but snacks. Not funny guys!! We were in 2 hour lines before boarding. We were not aware that the 400 us dolarla tickets are without food and drinks. We were tired and we were hungry and thirsty. And here it was: a very appetizing menu that we can't buy anything on it.... Again, not funny at all.
Pros: "It was wonderful"
Cons: "Best booking app ever"
Pros: "The seat was terrible"
Cons: "If I had gotten my luggage at the end of the flight"
Pros: "Smooth flying so got some sleep"
Cons: "Clearer back-to-front boarding process"
Pros: "Punctuality and professionalisms were at the best"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Paid for Business , got a minor economy service ."
Cons: "Almost no advantages for business ticket traveller"
Pros: "I spent 5 hours on the phone and they didn’t help me. They couldn’t even help me the book so I just lost 700 dollars when trying to change a flight."
Cons: "Worst experience in all areas. The phones calls were brutal and no one could help me and then someone could and then they cousltnnagain. No one could find a flight. Took so long for them to look stuff up etc."
Cons: "Three hour delay. Shifted all our plans and reservations. Upsetting. Made short seven hour flight a ten hour flight with sitting and waiting for three hours. We were hungry and tired and stuck. Kept getting mixed signals: to wait longer."
Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "lack of service, very unfriendly stewardess"
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Cons: "There was someone that pooped themselves, another that threw up, and the flight attendants were so rude. They kept spraying stuff in the air and even those of us sitting, so much in fact I had an asthma attack and had to use my inhaler. When I told the attendant, she said "theres nothing I can do," and kept spraying the air with this awful spray. The flight harmful to my health, exhausting, and uncomfortable. BEWARE OF THIS AIRLINE! I would have preferred not gone on my trip then fly this airline!"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Not business treatment, the boarding que, the seats, the food"
Cons: "Choice of food was very limited as they were missing the food in catalog."
Cons: "Delay, nothing to eat, poor service !"
Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "We got zero offer of beverages during our flight, even a cup of water! Glad we bought our own. It seemed like one of the flight attendants was in a flight with a customer during boarding."
Cons: "Despite the fact that I reserved a window seat, I was assigned a seat in the middle of the center row. They also 'sanitized' the airplane twice after that closed the doors before take off. They walked up and down the aisle with aerosol spray cans. I don't think people should be subject to unknown chemicals in order for the airline to save time on cleaning the cabin before take off."
Pros: "It is a quick trip which is nice."
Cons: "The staff for SN Brussles is very rude to Africans. They are super disrespectful and it is very obvious how tacist they are. It is uncomfortable flying witha stafflike that. Also our flight had electrical and engine problems at our first stop in Freetown. Once we landed in Monrovia, it took about 35mins for them to let us off the plane because the doors were not working and opening up. Once we finally got off the plane, it took a whole 2 hours for them to get our baggage e off the plane because spmething was wrong and they couldnot access the baggage to take it off. I am aware that planes can “fly with one engine”, but flying a plane with one engine along with it having electrical problems is not safe and A RISK! why take that risk of something bad happening, not only would lives of innocent people and their crew get lost, but that is a million dollar assest that could get lost and a PR nightmare. It is a shame they took that risk. They also dodnt tell us until we landed. Had I known before we took off at Freetown I would have gladly fot off and found another mode of transportation to get to my final destination. SN Brussels is know to send their sh*tty planes to Africa, because there are always problems with the planes heading to that continent. It is just another obvious proof of their racism."
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "The safety instructions movie was entertaining the first time. The crew was friendly overall."
Cons: "Both my luggage items were lost on the way there and one on the way back. No free food or drink although the flight price is not that low."
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that I landed safely in Brussels."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with seats that didn’t recline, head rests that didn’t move, no in-flight entertainment, no pillows or blankets, and unfriendly and somewhat rude, jaded flight attendants. The most uncomfortable international flight I’ve been on"
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "It was a small plane with only 1 bathroom which was not available for the flight due to long lines. There was no food or even a drink of water without payment. there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "They dropped our connection. Took 3 hours to straighten it out"
Pros: "On time, good price, convenient, !"
Cons: "Charge for coffee and water"
Pros: "Long flights are never fun It helped that the crew was helpful and pleasant Food was ok but there could have been more offered It was an 8 hour flight and there was one meal an hour after take off and then just a very small snack and drink an hour before Not enough water was offered throughout the flight"
Pros: "Be on time"
Cons: "Food, no comfort, movies and music boring"
Cons: "Very dirty plane, limited space poor customer service. Took pictures of stained trays, seats. Very gross."
Cons: "Flught was delayed more than 45 min from Brussels and when we finally arrived to Lisabon they couldn't open a door to Airport building."
Pros: "The team was nice, the flight took off on time and arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Even though I'm a star Alliance frequent traveler status holder, and the status grants an extra bag on economy class I was forced to pay for my first checked in bag. Furthermore, since I assumed I'll be getting my checked in luggage for free (as it states on the miles and more website) I didn't pay for it in advance a fee of 35$, meaning they made me pay 65$ in the airport."
Pros: "Rude and incompetent crew/employees. Early morning flight was delayed 30 min and therefore we missed our connection. Representatives at the Brussels airport were incompetent, slow and misleading and on top of all our suitcases were lost and 24 hours later no one can tell us where they are"
Cons: "The flight was similar to a low-cost airline but I was not informed of this when booking. Uncomfortable seats with very little legroom, and food was only available by purchase. Not worth paying the cost of a regular flight for a 5 hour flight!"
Cons: "There was a very long wait checking in and boarding and there was no kosher food available on the flight."
Pros: "They were responsive. They had lots of gate agents. You had to initiate the conversation though."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4.5 hrs. The check-in process was not smooth. After additional security screening at the gate everyone was left on the jetway until everyone had their tickets scanned. They were late loading cargo and food."
Pros: "The seats in the plane were amazing. Maybe older but better than the new ones."
Cons: "No infotainment screen"
Pros: "the cabin crew was wonderful. We were delayed by half hour on board they kept us informed and the service was excellent"
Pros: "Clean, professional and great meal!"
Cons: "Babies crying everywhere One couple fighting No food or drinks"
Cons: "they lost one of my carry on bags and haven't been found"
Pros: "Did not like airline so much."
Cons: "Staff did not allow access to lavatories when they were serving drinks and the long waits after were ridiculous"
Cons: "Old plane. Seats couldn't be adjusted. Had to take a bus to board the plane."
Cons: "* No information was provided to the passengers about an additional delay of the flight after the original 5 hour delay. * No compensation was offered for the inconvenience of a delayed baggage by 2 days. * My family is definitely not going to fly with Brussels Airlines after the experience we had."
Cons: "Departure delayed for unspecified reasons, most of the passengers like me had connecting flights and it was stressful"
Cons: "Need more movies. Fly this route all the time and very little change."
Cons: "I have no words flew not honored and I had to buy a ticket at the airport. Thank you for your service!"
Pros: "Very old planes No entertainment Very nice stewardess"
Pros: "I eventually got home"
Cons: "I didn't get to sleep as I had to spend hours booking a new flight."
Pros: "I liked that my seat was by the window and I saw the most beautiful sky in my life! And the seat next to me was empty so I was able to stretch my legs and even lay down to sleep. The crew was very attentive and knowledgeable. Food was very good, I was just glad that I was fed."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like is that turbine was blocking my view but I wasn't a big of a deal at all. I was just happy that all that long flight I was sitting by the window and was able to see the sunrise."
Pros: "There were a couple of the flight attendants that were excellent: Friendly, welcoming and service minded. Not all, but I have come to expect the worst from United (I fly 5-6 trips a year with UA, 5-6 trips with other Star Alliance airlines). Food in Economy Plus was mediocre at best, it seems United are catering this from a correctional facility. Overall good experience due to the staff, but nothing that wow'ed us beyond being better than what we have come to expect from United."
