Air Belgium is the new airline operating flights between Charleroi and Hong Kong, in addition to operating some charter flights on behalf of other airlines. I had the chance to fly them last month, and had a really great flight, both thanks to how professional all the employees were, and also thanks to how empty the flight was, as there were only about two dozen passengers.
I’m hoping to publish my trip report soon. I’m sorry it has taken so long, but hopefully the preview gave a good sense of what the experience was like.
It looks like Air Belgium recently invited a bunch of HK-based bloggers and vloggers to experience their business class product. While I personally don’t take comped flights, I think that was a smart decision for them, given that the cabins are otherwise empty. They might as well generate some buzz surrounding the flights.
So they invited a bunch of young bloggers to fly roundtrip in business class with them, and they also showed them around Belgium.
I’ve been looking on YouTube for the video reviews, because there’s something I really enjoy about watching the excitement that people have when reviewing a premium cabin experience when they’re not used to flying that way.
So I had stumbled upon this video review, though it just had subtitles in English. Even though I couldn’t understand the actual review, I still found it incredibly enjoyable to watch.
But then I realized that the same YouTuber made a video with a voiceover in English, which is even more fun to watch:
If you have a few minutes, I highly recommend giving it a watch. There’s something about the enthusiasm towards the product, as well as the overly enthusiastic voiceover, that I just love, and I can’t help but share.
It also can’t be great for the airline that the bloggers were the only people in business class — “actually we just bought out the whole flight. All of us are bloggers.”
