Absolutely decent service, just the regular German quality. The entertainment System should have a little bit wider selection, but it is all fine. Give them a try, they offer an enjoyable flight.

Their Niki flight was late from Dubrovnik to Berlin. Not due to weather. As a Plus-calm efficient agent tried to get us to our connecting flight which had already left long before. As first minus-over 200 people in line at their desk to rebook other of their messed up flights. They had already cancelled their last flight that night to...

the flight was ok but at the air port the airline is very strict on every 100 gr of extra weight you have and while each company allow you to have a backpack and trolley or a woman bag and carry on bag they do not. they were very rude and unpleasant . will not fly again with them.

We booked this flight several months in advance at a fair price as we always had good experiences with Air Berlin. The flight DUS-NUE was good, it was on time, the mobile check-in was easy and the staff friendly. The Dash-8 is quite comfortable. Unfortunately the return flight was canceled on the day of departure which made our journey back...

The flight was in 2015 We were supposed to fly from Düsseldorf to Abu Dhabi in around 6 hours. They shoved us in a plane that wasn't supposed to fly that long, so we had to stop in Bucharest to get kerosine, that took 3:45 and we had been in the plane waiting! It was ridiculous! Also check in took...

We were given this flight when booking our return flight to Berlin from Sofia. The outward was with Air Bulgaria, the return was Air Berlin. Looks like they are sharing their flights to optimise costs. But while Air Bulgaria serves some food and beverages, although their quality is poor, at air berin everyhing is paid, even water (3€). I find...

Crowded airports and stuffed airplanes. It´s not really fun to fly this inland-hopper. Frankfurt is ok. Crowded, but organized and well signed-out. The plane was stuffed till the last seat and the leg-freedom is so limited that I do not recomend it for poeple over 1,80m height. Next the airport Tegel in Berlin is a real disaster. To small, to...

My husband and I booked a flight two months ago from Prague to Berlin. 12 hours before our flight I received an email saying our flight was canceled and that was it! No info on how to contact them. No reason why our trip was canceled. And they did not attempt to change us to another flight. As we are...
