comment Insurance for multinational family
In the end I found a reputable British insurer who has an "International" brand - ie XXXX International - who were prepared to insure any EU citizens provided they had lived in their base-country (in your case Belgium) for a minimum of 6 months.

comment What is the LONGEST passenger flight (with a flight number) in the world?
There is a flight from a French colony (Nouvelle Calédonie, I think) in the South Pacific to Paris via Réunion. I have no idea on any details (flight number, distance, time) but it might be a candidate. It basically goes west across Australia, lands in Réunion to pick up passengers (this is where I got on) and then flies north west over the Horn of Africa to Paris.

comment Insurance for multinational family
That's exactly the problem. For some reason that I don't quite understand, the insurance policy is nationality specific.

comment Changing trains in Lille - what's the transfer with luggage between Lille Europe and Lille Flanders stations like?
If your ticket requires a change between the two stations in Lille (eg you are travelling on train 1 from A to Lille Europe and train 2 from Lille Flanders to B) then your ticket on the metro is actually free. See the second white box on the top of this page: gares-en-mouvement.com/fr/frlle/horaires-temps-reel/dep there is no physical system that stops you from walking onto the metro, so you would only need to show your SNCF ticket if challenged.

comment Can you use your mobile phone in the Channel Tunnel?
To add to this, the Channel Tunnel is actually 3 tunnels - a service tunnel down the middle and then one standard tunnel in each direction. The French networks have crossed the channel in the France-UK direction while the British networks have done the reverse. eurotunnelgroup.com/uploadedFiles/assets-uk/Media/…
