I was able to fly from Paris Orly (ORY) to Madrid (MAD) and back with Air Europa and it went very well. This was the first time I'd used this Spanish airline, and I wasn't disappointed.

Firstly, and though this really isn't directly related to the flight itself and and how it went, I do think it's quite an important thing to include when evaluating an airline: Air Europa's website and smartphone app are very well put together. With polished designs that alternate between different shades of blue and black, they are nice to use when it comes to booking your flight. The app is intuitive and the tickets can be easily accessed, which makes checking-in/boarding much more rapid.

As for the flights themselves, they went very well, with both quite similar (there was perhaps a little more turbulence on the return flight to Paris). For the outbound flight, the plane was a Boeing 737-800, which had shared screens showing tourism-related films. For the return flight it was an Embraer E-195, which had no screens and one less seat per row (2-2 configuration).

The seats were comfortable and there was a good amount of legroom. The menu included both hot and cold meals and there was a wide choice of food and drinks available at decent prices. The temperature in the cabin was pleasant and the cabin crew were attentive and made the announcements in Spanish, English, and even in French. The two flights both arrived at destination a little ahead of schedule. The only – and very minor – negative point: a bit too much time elapsed between parking up after landing and the arrival of the gangway (in Madrid) and the stairs (at Orly). This may have been because the ground-based services were not expecting the flights to arrive ahead of schedule.

In conclusion, Air Europa is a good airline, and will be one of my first choices when it comes to future flights to Spain.
