Thanks to for spotting this The seats are bookable for Air Berlin services departing on and after the 1st December. The seat pitch in the Air Berlin Economy Class is a little limited The cloth seats themselves were spotlessly clean and are pretty comfortable when sitting down. You should also have a working headphone jack and reading lamp. No pretzels, peanuts, water or anything. Up to and including 12 February 2016, airberlin is offering the popular seats at a special price of 69 euros per leg, thus 10 euros less than usual.
I went to the Air Berlin help desk and after explaining the situation to the woman at the desk she said there was nothing she could do. However, my checked baggage was misplaced. I could check in online on my outbound flight because it was the first leg, on my return flight though I couldn't do it because Etihad was the first segment. The resolution was quite good as well and I also liked the fact that you were not depending on an adapter to use your own headphones. Representatives are rude and not helpful. The airline owes me over 500 Euros in reimbursement, which it has managed to avoid paying due to their own fiscal troubles. This gives the usual 8 seating across that is expected aboard an A330 in economy class.
When we boarded the plane it was an exit row. I am an Emerald member on one world however they did not recognise me on this flight nor the departing flight no greeting, benefit, drinks, nothing. From there I napped, stared, ate, then settled in to read the newspaper front to back. No inflight entertainment; no electrical outlet, however on the B737 there was wifi return flight which offered paid inflight entertainment. Entering a plane, walking by the fabulous first and business class seats and finally seeing the emergency rows fully booked and there goes the last glimpse of hope for a little bit more space. The impressive thing about Air Berlin is that on flights of over an hour they sell hot meals aboard.
The promotion is available for long-haul flights during the travel period up to and including 30 April 2016. Flew from Bucharest to Nuremberg with a layover in Berlin. Yep, same problem with the stupid bus, especially weird because we were using an empty gate with bridge to get to the bus. Here is what you can expect from Air Berlin business class. I am never picky when someone is serving a meal in the sky but I can say this food was excellent.
Air Berlin Business Class Seats The seats fully recline into a nice lie-flat bed. Erkennbar sind die neuen Sitzplätze an Bord durch eine visuell gekennzeichnete rote Kopfstütze.

After we already reviewed the Air Berlin Business Class on long haul flights, it is time to also have a glance at what Air Berlin offers in Economy Class! However, our flight with Air Berlin was quite a pleasure even though it was longer than ten hours. The window seats such as 3K or 5K offer the most privacy. Air Berlin also offers newspapers and magazines.

Pity, because Air Berlin was one of my favourite airlines. The Boeing 737 had the A320 safety sheet. Good entertainment on modern screens I have to admit that we were pretty surprised to see that the entertainment system in Economy Class was pretty much on-pair with what is offered in the Air Berlin Business Class. There was a small pocket to store only thin books but not iPad and not for a bottle of water either. Being under 19 years old at the time and a solo flyer I am to this day outraged by the lack of sympathy and understanding of the customer support team. This kind of worked out as the rows are not parallel to each other in this part of the airplane.
Fortunately the middle seat between us stayed empty, so it was just like intra-Europe business class. These are close quarters and really meant for a couple traveling together. Do not recommend this airline, they just lost two customers. As part of a codeshare though, they are difficult to work with. But we fit fine, video was working with lots of options for watching , food was ok-ishand the attendants were quite helpful and very nice. I swapped with a couple and moved to 4G. My flight reviews will do just that so you can get the most for your money and miles.
Yes, a total waste of money, but I figured the photo opp of eating and drinking better in intra-Europe coach than business class justified the cost. No separate business class counter during night before check-in service! What made me really enjoy the flight was the easy usable and good entertainment system. Departure gate Once at the plane, boarding was taking place through both the forward and rear doors. After staying in line for almost an hour to actually talk with someone they tell me that I have flight for today so they don't understand why is my problem - if they would tell me up front that the flight at 5pm will not happen I would fly directly from Bonn to Prague at 7 pm. A few flight attendants were super friendly, others seem to have rather been anywhere else. Air Berlin representative was not helpful at all.
My hard shell Luggage was broken on the outgoing and I had to buy a new one on return flight and I am still sending emails back and forth to be compensated. . There is a nice selection of movies and shows to keep you entertained. Competition Many airlines have been adding enhanced or Premium Economy products on board to attract passengers tempted to pay a little more for a bigger space. In fact it is why I am writing the review - as I promised myself I would write a good review if we arrived home intact with a good experience. Topbonus members can use miles to upgrade themselves to these seats at a promotional price of 10,000 miles.
