Brussels Airlines The Loft

Our flight from Stockholm Bromma landed on time and parked at Gate A52. I then headed directly to The Loft lounge as I have never visited it in the past and wanted to have enough time to explore it.

Around 8:40pm, I inquired at the lounge reception about our flight being delayed as shown on the departures screen. I was informed that it was indeed delayed and that I needed to go to Terminal B immediately as there would be passport control there and it was a bit far.

Passport control to Terminal B

I was not sure if there was a lounge I could use in Terminal B. I ended up being admitted at the Diamond Lounge which is being used by most airlines flying outside Europe.

Brussels Airlines A320 "Aerosmurf" 

I was actually hoping I would be able to fly on one of those Belgian Icons (A320s with special liveries) and voila, we got the Aerosmurf for tonight´s flight to London 👍 The aircraft actually landed almost an hour late from Tel Aviv which was the cause of our delayed flight.

During dining service, I moved to seat 1F so I could be closer with the Smurfs 😉

For this one hour flight to London, we got a meal consisting of salmon quiche, mozzarella with pesto sauce and sun dried tomato, eclair and raspberry tart 😋

For drinks, I had the watermelon-raspberry drink.


Landing in Heathrow

We landed in Heathrow at 10:09pm and reached our gate 11 minutes later.


It was fun to have flown on this Aerosmurf as it kind of reminded me of my Hello Kitty flight with EVA Air a few years ago. Of course, EVA Air had the seats and dining items (even toilet paper in the lavatory) all with Hello Kitty theme which was not the case on the Aerosmurf. Still, it was an enjoyable flight for me and would gladly do it again!
