Air Berlin??

Just saw a good deal on Air Berlin. Has anyone flown them out of JFK to Europe? What are the planes like? Personnel?

Air Berlin is a good reliable airline. Modern planes, professional staff. First comfort class is exceptional. Economy is standard (like any other airlines which flies transatlantic).

Air Berlin is increasingly popular with business travellers since they are reliable and have reasonable rates.

You will find several dozen threads on Air Berlin here on this forum.

Wow! I just typed Miami to DUS for June 17 and returning July 15 and got $864.00! The next airline was $1,307. They use an Airbus A330, with 2,4,2 seating.
