Has anyone flied on Air Berlin within Europe? What should I expect?
I chose them because they are a Oneworld carrier and was able to get oneway flights for about $70/person including 1 checked bag, 1 carryon, and snack/meal. Will be making my way from ORY to BER then BER to FCO.
On another note, how is security checks/check-in process in Europe? Last time I went to Europe was pre 9/11 back in 1999!
I've flown with them before from stansted to Berlin and I thought they were fine. I'd use them again.
we normally fly with BA so they weren't that different.
i find the security fairly similar in US and Europe, prepare to put liquids in plastic bag, jackets & shoes off.
you will probably be able to check in online and then go to bag drop desk.
We flew Air Berlin from JFK to Dusseldorf to FCO this past May. It was nice, as others have stated. My kids liked the little travel bags with socks, toothbrush and toothpaste, ear plugs, and sleeping mask that everyone received on the international leg(we flew coach). And on the short leg, we were given drinks and a nice big pretzel, which we were not expecting. I would fly with them again.
