This is my flight report from Brussels to Tel Aviv with Brussels Airlines in Economy Class.
Brussels Airlines is the main airline for Belgium. They fly to 96 destinations with a fleet of 44 aircraft. This airline, with 11 years old, resulted from the merge between SN Brussels and Virgin, and is now part of Lufthansa Group and also a Star Alliance member.
The flight duration was 4h11 and arrived 13 minutes late.

Brussels is the main airport of Belgium, the 21st busiest airport in Europe and the hub for Brussels Airlines. I entered in the main terminal and saw the memorial of the terror attack that affected the airport on Mar 22nd 2016. Then I went to the Brussels Airlines check-in area and the process was very quickly.
The boarding was made at gate B01. First were the families with children and people with disabilities followed by Business Class passengers, Star Alliance Gold and Silver, and then Economy Class passengers. The aircraft was an Airbus A320, OO-SNF, at the time without the Tomorrowland Livery, with 10 years old and before it flew with the Aer Lingus colours. In terms of cabin, it was 30 seat rows, configuration 3-3 and the first 4 rows were for Business Class, separated by economy just by 2 placards on the top of the inner seats. The aircraft had the usual Airbus configuration with one lavatory in the front and 2 in the rear, a forward galley near door 1 right and a rear galley. I was seated on 15A and fortunately no passenger on 15B so I almost flew in Business.
Take-off & Cruise
The take-off was performed via runway 25R with a delay of 22 minutes. This overnight flight was very smooth and I took almost all the time to rest
Because the flight duration was more than 4 hours, Brussels Airlines offered a meal, made by foodmaker, composed by Spirelli Feta Tomato Tapenade as main course, President’s Camembert cheese, crackers and a cake.
Approach and Landing
I approached Tel Aviv by the west coast, overflying Jaffa area and then landed in runway 12. The emigration and baggage pick-up process was really fast and I left the airport just 15 minutes after disembarking.
I enjoyed to fly with Brussels in this sector because I had an empty seat next to meet and also free catering during the flight. The flight was delayed but the emigration process in Tel Aviv was really fast.
