We chose Airberlin / Etihad for our trip from Berlin to Seoul and back to Berlin from Singapore mostly because of the price but also because of Etihad's extensive marketing campaign to position themselves and their partners as premium carriers. You get what you pay for, though, it seems. Airberlin's A330s have the worst legroom of any long-haul aircraft I've...

Travelling through Europe decided to visit Germany, which was fantastic. To get back to Australia, decided to fly Airberlin from Berlin to Abu Dhabi as the first leg. After knee surgery, tried to book extra leg room on their website, which kept crashing. Eventually spent 45 minutes and $50 AUD phoning them to book. Costing $125 AUD, was happy. When...

Although a budget airline, it has good standards and the crew are efficient. Small delay which was annoying. Seat was ok. Nice Lindt chocolate on landing.

Airberlin left me with mixed feelings. First it is cheap, so it has a great advantage on that side. However, it seemed to me like a mediocre service airline. The leg space was a bit tight and the food & beverages were not free. The crew was cordial though. I think it is a convenient way of travel for within...

Everything was outstanding! Loved the service, the seats, the price! Thank you Airberlin for making our flight so memorable. Seats were comfortable for economy, but i can see if you are a large person then any seat on any airline other than 1st class will be uncomfortable. Hope to fly Airberlin on my next European trip. One thing though, at...

Tried out the airline. Cramped seating and stern on the baggage allowance. The good thing is that follow the timing.

I changed from Lufthansa-Eurowings to AirBerlin cause I feel a better timing at Palma-Airport. The staff is friendly, the A320 with sharklets new and I get an emergency row so I do not have problems with the legroom. They tell that AirBerlin will almost disappear from PMI so they pass their slots to Eurowings. A pitty, also for the well...

This airline nearly ruined our honeymoon because they managed to lose my wife's luggage, along with dozens of others on a 1.5hr route. When we landed in Florence, we waited along with 20 other people in the Lost and Found line only to find out that Air Berlin had left over 100 bags in Dusseldorf. Even after hearing that we...

Provided an excellent valued flight and service for the price. The initial flight was almost perfect except for the end portion from Dusseldorf to Milan Linate, the Linate ground crew, contracted people, were so dis-organized we waited for buses to get us from the plane to the actual terminal for well over 30 minutes, frankly they need to find a...
