Since when does BA fly intercontinental from BRU?

Ive just been looking for a cheap fare from London to YYZ, and one of the results was a 1 stopover fare on BA, so i looked into it, and i am surprised to be offered a LHR-BRU-YYZ-BRU-LHR all on BA.

So since when does BA fly direct BRU to YYZ?

Its obviously a Jet codeshare.... But since when?

Clearly something wrong - BA 229 is LHR - Baltimore so definitely not ex BRU

No idea what BA230 is but 229 is certainly a 763 operates route LHR-BWI

Hi,

I cant find a BA 230 flight ( return from BWI is BA 228)

However there is a Jet Airways flight (9W) 230 going BRU to YYZ.

Regards

230 and 229 are the 9W (Jet) flight numbers from BRU <-> YYZ.

Makes sense now.

If the OP was searching using a website other than BA you could be offered flights starting BA ex LHR and combining any combination of airlines to form the cheapest route.

Not a codeshare but bags could be tagged through as long as an interline agreement was in place. Also if not codeshare avios and tier points are only earned on the BA flights.
