Brussels Airlines Mulling USA Route

An interesting article (in Dutch) found on a Belgian news website says that Brussels Airlines is planning a route into the United States. According to the article, the airline itself announced the details at a recent news conference.
The airline will launch the flights in 2012, once it takes delivery of its sixth Airbus A330 aircraft. A destination was not earmarked, however it is expected that – being a Star Alliance member – the airline will launch flights to a hub of a Star Alliance member.
Brussels hopes to tap a share of the USA – Africa transit market, which it says already accounts for 14% of its African traffic.
