flight delayed and ZERO customer service - trip ruined

Well I'm not on the flight yet because it's delayed. It's delayed so badly that I'll miss my connection. The Brussels Airlines customer service manager here says "he can't access ongoing flights from Brussels" to my final destination, and he's too busy to talk to me or contact a colleague in Brussels who can do his job for him.

So the instructions I get? Get on the delayed flight when it arrives and hope for the best. Who knows when I will arrive at my destination? The only thing they can tell me is it won't be today.

They refuse to book me onto another airline, so I'm sitting here at the airport, fully expecting to waste ~12 hours each way travelling for a one day trip where I will completely miss the appointment even though I planned to land a day early!

Could it be worse?

The worst flight of my life

I travelled with my 3 month old baby and it was the worst experience of my life ! As i arrived on board with my pram folded as a bag, they took it away from me despite agreeing to it at the desk, without giving me a ticket for it or protect it, I had to verbally fight to get my textile baby carrier on board. Then the cabin crew literally thrown a "gift" on my baby chest while i was breastfeeding. No empathy, no help, no manners. Terrible.

Do not recommend

I flew from JFK airport to Brussels airport and was very uncomfortable.

It was very tight and it was hard to plug in earbuds and chargers on the seats.

They also have absolutely terrible customer service. I was on the phone with them trying to extend and the woman was yelling at me telling me it was too late and that I should've called the day before. I called the day before and I had the 6 attempts recorded in my phone but they dismissed it saying that they would've picked up.

Also after trying to reach them, I emailed them that same day that I tried to get through so at least they would see that I tried, and again they dismissed it.They are very hard to reach since they are open only for 3 hours and don't pick up all the time.

I would not recommend this airline to anyone, especially if you need customer service.

It was well flown. Landed in one piece etc. However, it was the first leg of a trip to Canada, no food was served and the staff were unsympathetic and disempowered.

I got the impression staff wanted to help more but company policy and culture prevented it. Will not fly with them again if I can help it.

This airline has terrible client service

My friend luggage was lost when she was flying to Prague. She needed to buy basic things. Since she does not speak English I fill out the luggage lost form- the case Case no. 1607-SN-02410.

There is no communication from the airlines side whatsallever. There is no phone number to call regarding this. I did not see such customer service long time.

I was told by guys on Prague airport that Brussels airlines are well known for losing luggages a lot.

On the flight, when you ask for blanket cause there is cold, you do not receive anything. Really weird value for the money.

A disappoint experience with Brussel Airlines

I had an excellent trip from Toronto to Belgium, airhostess and crew as nice from Toronto to Belgium with great service.

However, the trip from Belgium to Accra on Brussel Airlines flight 277 on July 9, 2016 and return on flight 278 on August 6, 2015 were the most horrible flight I had ever had.

The crew were very disrespectful. The washroom in the plane was dirty and smelling with no tissue paper right from the beginning of the flights when I went to use the washroom. The plane was smelling and dirty in the cabin.

The services were horrible and the air hostess pretend they could not speak English anytime passengers ask for their assistance. I am wondering if the same airline should have 2 different level of services for their America-Europe trip and that for their Europe-Africa trips.

I will advise the authorities to find out how the same airline can offer a good service on one leg of the trip and horrible service on the other.

I don't advise anyone to use Brussel Airlines from Europe to Africa. Thank you.

Seems usual to miss the connecting flights

We travelled from Stockholm to Lisbon through Brussels and back. The departure time was not kept with the planes to Brussels in both directions. We managed to catch the connection towards Lisbon but our baggage did not.

They lost our baggage and did not find it for a day. On the way back we missed the connection and had to wait two more hours to get home.

There was very little compensation for our lost time and I did not feel that the Airline cared about our experience. We were upset.
