I am in UK and planning go to China during Christmas. I found a great deal (British Airway) but it leaves from Brussels, and transfers in London and arrives Beijing (Brussels-London-Beijing). I have to apply a Schengen visa in order to get in Belgium. But if they only give me ONE-ENTRY visa, I will not able to enter twice. I am wondering if I can simply not take the last leg of the return flight (i.e. London-Brussels) so that I can avoid the visa thing and come back to UK directly. Will some penalties apply for not getting on the flight? Can I get my luggage from the flight, otherwise it will go to Brussels with plane.
Thank you very much!
