  1. The following terms and conditions ("Terms and Conditions") shall apply to an offer (“Offer”) made by you (“you”) to Brussels Airlines NV/SA, zone General Aviation - b.house - Airport Building 26 - Ringbaan – B-1831 Diegem – Belgium, RPR-RPM Brussels VAT 0400853488 (“Airline”) for an opportunity to upgrade from the class of service that was originally purchased by you for travel with the Airline to minimum one class of service higher (“Upgrade”).
  2. All persons who submit an Offer must have reached the legal age of majority in their country of residence at the time the Offer is submitted. You shall be deemed to have the authority to act on behalf of and to bind the person or persons named or included on the Offer to these Terms and Conditions.
  3. An Offer, when submitted by you in association with a booking made with the Airline, whether made directly with the Airline or indirectly through other means, and presented to the Airline, shall entitle the person or persons named on the Offer, subject to these Terms and Conditions, to be considered for an Upgrade.
  4. The Airline is under no obligation to accept your Offer, and it makes no representation that any passenger will be upgraded regardless of whether or not seats are available in the class of service for which an Offer is being made. Specifically, the Airline will assess your Offer based on the amount of the Offer, the original booking class of your flight, your Miles & More or Star Alliance frequent flyer status (as applicable), the success rate of you receiving an Upgrade through this program in the past, number of seats available in higher class of service and number of persons named on the Offer.
  5. You agree that your Offer remains open for acceptance by the Airline at any time up to 3 days (72 hours) prior to the scheduled flight departure time. You may revise or cancel your Offer as long as your Offer has not already been accepted by the Airline. If your Offer is accepted before you cancel or amend your Offer, you are legally bound to complete payment for the price stated in your original Offer and you are not entitled to withdraw anymore from your Upgrade, except and to the extent as described in these Terms and Conditions.
  6. In the event the Airline cancels a flight and re-accommodates you on to another flight, any Offer you made in relation to the original booking may be transferred to the new flight(s) subject always to availability of seats in the higher class of service. The offer is non transferable to another person. If, for any reason, there are not enough seats available in the higher class of service to fulfill your Upgrade (only where your original Offer has been accepted), any amounts paid by you for the Upgrade will be refunded to the credit card that was used to pay for the Upgrade and the Airline shall have no further liability to you.
  7. The Airline may accept your Offer any time. In the event the Airline accepts your Offer, your credit card shall be charged the full amount immediately upon acceptance, and the Airline will issue an Upgrade to each passenger included in your original flight booking. The total amount charged will include all applicable pre-payable taxes and fees (if any) for the Upgrade. The total amount that you must pay to us will be disclosed to you prior to you submitting your Offer. An Upgrade that has been issued by the Airline cannot be assigned, or transferred, in whole or in part to another person or flight except as specified in clause 6 herein.
  8. There will be no refunds, credits, or exchanges once your Offer has been accepted by the Airline, except under the following conditions:
    • The flight for which your Offer was accepted and you were upgraded was cancelled, and the Airline re-accommodated you on another flight but in the class of service of your original booking, in which case the amount paid for the Upgrade will be refunded to the payment card that was used to pay for the Upgrade and the Airline shall have no further liability to you.
    • Your Offer was accepted and you were given an Upgrade, but you were not able to be seated in the upgraded class of service for reasons attributable to the Airline, including, but not limited to, a change in equipment, a delay in the connecting flight that resulted in your missing the connection on which you were upgraded, but excluding reasons attributable to your actions.
    • Your Offer was accepted for a specific flight and date, but you subsequently changed the flight and/or departure date. If under the terms and conditions applicable to the original ticket, you are entitled to a refund of the price of the original ticket, the amount of the Upgrade will be refunded to the credit card that was used to pay for the Upgrade.  If under the terms and conditions applicable to the original ticket, you are not entitled to a refund of the price of the original ticket, Airline shall not refund you the amount paid for the Upgrade   
    • Your Offer was accepted and you subsequently cancelled the original ticket or failed to show up for your flight (“no-show”). If under the terms and conditions applicable to the original ticket, you are entitled to a refund of the price of the original ticket, the amount of the Upgrade will be refunded to the credit card that was used to pay for the Upgrade. If under the terms and conditions applicable to the original ticket, you are not entitled to a refund of the price of the original ticket, Airline shall not refund you the amount paid for the Upgrade.  
  9. Should refunds be approved, they will be processed in the currency in which the Upgrade amount was charged. If a foreign exchange rate must be applied in order to complete the refund in the currency of the originally charged Upgrade amount, a generally accepted prevailing rate will be used. This rate may be adjusted to account for conversion and other charges that the Airline may levy. In no respect shall the amount refunded be more than the amount charged in the original currency for the Upgrade.
  10. The fare conditions for the original ticket you purchased shall remain in effect and will be applicable even if your Offer has been accepted and you have been upgraded, including, but not limited to, cancellation policies, change fees, and rules relating to the accrual of frequent flyer miles.
  11. The Airline does not guarantee specific seat assignments to passengers whose Offers are accepted and who are upgraded.
  12. In the event your Offer was accepted and your credit card was charged the Offer amount but the Upgrade was not provided or received, you may apply for a refund provided that the conditions for which refunds are given as described in these terms and conditions have been satisfied. You hereby agree that to claim a refund, you will present the (i) boarding pass for the flight in question at the time you request the refund, and (ii) email notifying you that you have been Upgraded, and you agree to contact the Airline through customer.relations@brusselsairlines.com within 3 months of the flight departure for which such dispute is being raised. You unconditionally agree that no request for a refund can be raised or filed after 3 months from the departure date of said flight.
  13. The Airline reserves the right to modify and otherwise change these Terms and Conditions at any time in its sole discretion. These modifications or changes shall not impact material provisions of the Terms and Conditions, nor the Offers that have already been accepted.
  14. These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire and only understanding between the parties, and replace any prior understandings or agreements (whether oral or written) relating to the subject matter hereof. The Airline shall not archive nor make accessible the contract entered into with you.
  15. The failure of the Airline to exercise any of its rights shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the future performance of any of its rights, and your obligations with respect to such future performance shall continue in full force and effect.
  16. These Terms and Condition shall be governed by the laws of Belgium. Without prejudice to your right under mandatory local laws to initiate legal proceedings before other competent courts, you submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Brussels, Belgium, for settlement of any dispute which might arise as a result of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions.
  17. These Terms and Conditions should be read in conjunction with Brussels Airlines' Terms Of Use, and Privacy and Security Policy and are hereby incorporated into and form part of these Terms and Conditions.
