Review of Ludwig P. about the flight Air Berlin between Berlin Tegel and Paris Orly on 23/12/2013 in Economy
Ludwig P. AB / BER TXL / ORY
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 2 years ago.

Everything began at the Berlin TXL airport, which due to its small size has shown itself once again to be extremely practical. Boarding was quick and efficient.

Like with many low-cost airlines, Air Berlin’s Boeing 737s don’t have a first or a business class. However, they are still humanely organized when it comes to space. About every five rows there is a small communal screen that shows an entertainment program, as well as flight information and safety instructions. I confess that seeing the crew make clowns of themselves has always somewhat amused me before a flight, but this method works quite well too.

The crew is very professional, pleasant, and nice, despite a flight at 6 in the morning. Only the pilot was incomprehensible during his announcement and his hesitation about the destination wasn’t very reassuring. Still, nothing too serious.
Once cruise altitude had been reached, the usual snacks/drinks (complimentary) were served. The flight attendant even asked if I wanted a second drink along with my coffee. Nice!

In my opinion, the only big downside was the rather quick descent, which made me deaf of my right ear for about 24 hours. Looking at the other passengers’ faces, I wasn’t the only one.


For those who only speak French (if they still exist), it should be said that most of the announcements are translated only into English, unlike with Air France / Lufthansa, which always have their texts in the language of the country of destination.

In short, since Air France decided to wreck their reputation by raising their base prices while charging extra for checked luggage, Air Berlin presents itself as a real alternative to EasyJerks’ light-years when it comes to value for the money.

Bonjour,

Merci beaucoup pour ce nouvel avis.
J'ai également entendu beaucoup de bien de cette compagnie. Des tarifs attractifs et des prestations correctes. Ce sera probablement celle que je prendrais pour aller à Miami (400€ le trajet en aller-simple contre 2000€ sur la compagnie nationale)

Merci encore pour votre fidélité et bonne année
