Must admit to being a fan of German Wings, now Euro Wings since they first arrived on the scene in 2002. I travel very regularly between London Stansted and their main hub in Cologne on business and find the selection of flights and times to be ideal. 3 classes of seating available, replacing the original ECONOMY and SMART. BEST provides an empty middle seat on either side of the aisle in the first 4-5 rows offering plenty of elbow room and generous legroom, even in row 1. The SMART seats go back to just beyond the mid-plane exit seats. (Exit row passengers are not allowed to store anything in seat backs or beneath the seat in front, which means having to be fast to the lockers). ECONOMY is pretty good, less legroom but on a short haul flight of 55-65 mins is perfectly adequate. The leather seats on the refitted Airbus A319s are a little thin on padding, but here again, not an issue on short haul. Cabin staff are smartly turned out, attentive and quite disciplined. Never seen any non-German nationals, not that that's a problem but you do tend to feel regimented at times. Smiles are sometimes there but you have to work at it. Timeliness is probably their worst attribute. In my experience, departures back from Cologne to Stansted are frequently delayed but the pilot usually tries hard to compensate. Then you have the dreadful U.K. Border Control queues which undo his efforts.... shopping ahead for flights is always worthwhile: plenty of good offers around and the excellent Boomerang (free to enrol) loyalty programme has seen me take several virtually free flights. You even get bonus miles for your birthday present, which is nice. Compared to the low cost rivals EasyJet and Ryan Air, these guys are at the top of their game. I love them... Other than their sandwiches which are of curly British Rail standard.
