Hi Alex,

Yes, all over the Belgian news regarding this. At the height of the creation of 9W’s hub at BRU, they had six 777’s on the ground rotating between JFK, EWR, and YYZ and to BOM, DEL, and CCU. They are now down to A330’s on all or most flights I believe, but still this will be a big loss to Brussels Airport which has been trying to attract new long haul service (ANA just agreed to re-start service to Tokyo). I agree with KSHaggag, so much better at BRU vis a vis competition, and the airport is far more compact than AMS. It will be really unfortunate, and will only leave Star Alliance on the BRU to EWR and YYZ route.
