Quick, Easy and Friendly but… my knees hurt!
Flying with Vueling was a surprising pleasure if taking into consideration that it is a LCC (Low Cost Carrier) and it’s in the same league as some Irish or English competitors.
Besides that booking the flight was pretty easy and quick I was very surprised by the friendliness of the staff. On-ground staff was very polite and the flight attendants where busy talking to each other but always attentive if you needed something from them.
Reasonably cheap drinks and food on board
You probably can book the food and drinks before hand when buying your ticket online but even if you don’t prices on board are pretty reasonable taking into consideration that the on board sale for many LCC is another big and important revenue stream. You can get a Spanish “bocadillo” for already €5,50 or a Muffin for €2,00.
You choose which music you’d like to hear!
A great thing by vueling is that YOU as a Facebook Fan choose which music you’d like to hear on-board. Vueling had a competition on their Facebook Page where their fans could vote for their favorite tracks. These include songs of Wilco, Bon Iver, Radiohead, Josh Rouse, Regina Pektor and many more. Unfortunately, the entertainment system didn’t work on our flight or maybe it was only my seat!
The flight was… good!
The Flight was, as anywhere else, pretty smooth and fast. We flew from Berlin Tegel to Barcelona in about two hours.
If you are tall, you might have a little problem. I’m 1,87 meters tall and my knees were hurting a little after the flight. The space between the seats must be strictly according to the international laws for leg space cause I think this was the tightest I ever sat in a flight. But this is only a personal problem, my friends and fellow travel bloggers Angelika from Ich weiss wo and Nina from Smaracuja didn’t have the problem.
All in All… I’ll book again!
The reason I’m most surprised about Vueling is probably because it’s the daughter company of Iberia where I haven’t had a very pleasant experience with and until today I’m still waiting for a response… but that is something else!
Vueling surprised with its professionalism and customer service and I’m sure that I’ll fly with them again when I need to get back to Spain.
