Used them from Zagreb to Stuttgart and back to Zagreb. Professional staff, clean plane, quick boarding. The food and drink are soooo expensive. Prices for bags over 8kg are also pretty much expensive. One of my bags was lost (gone to Munich instead of Zagreb) but it was find after few days - luckily. Just before take off we were...

Have used budget airlines in the past. However this was the best one. Professional staff, on-time, clean plane, good service and could not fault them. Yes I would definitely use again and thank you for good service.

Used them from London to Salzburg return. Generally quite good. Plane is clean. Comfortable for a short trip. Not sure about a long flight. No TV screen but only a short flight. I slept most of it. Very quick boarding. Staff generally friendly. Left on time and arrived early on the return but slightly delayed going out. Staff were sorry...

I heard negative things about this company, but I’ve to reconsider. My trip was actually nice, the seats are larger that most ‘cheap’ airlines and I felt respected by the crew.

Its good that they are covered by Lufthansa, as there will be no option on last minute alternatives (i. e. flight cancellation). Summertime looks like they are lacking on personnel, and would expect long queues on all their counters.

The situation around airline connections in Berlin was already very poor, but ever since Air Berlin went bust it has become even worse. Lufthansa’s low cost carrier Germanwings / Eurowings, supported by the German government, has taken over most of the planes and take-off/landing rights. I have not experienced a single flight without delay in the past months, travelling on...

I fly with this airline every 3 months for the short commute from Edinburgh to Cologne. The planes are always very clean( inside the cabin is very dull colours though ), and the cabin crew are very nice and friendly, always! They'll forever go out of their way to help you and accommodate for your needs. However, the seats are...
