Air Berlin Business Class Review

This week I got to try out a new carrier- airberlin business class from Berlin to JFK. While known as somewhat of a low-cost carrier, they do offer a respectable business class and they are in the process of retrofitting their cabin with all aisle access lie-flat beds. I was lucky (or unlucky, as you’ll find out) to get one of these new seats on my flight this week. While my airberlin experience was fine overall- I got to New York non-stop and the…

Air Berlin reviews

Many, many years ago, I caught a cheap flight from Berlin to Bangkok on a carrier called Air Berlin. It was a joyless experience. Back then, Air Berlin was a budget airline that offered the bare minimum to fly people internationally. You had an uncomfortable seat, no movies, and food only if you bought (or brought) it. The nine hours to Bangkok were hell, especially since this was before I discovered the wonders of Ambien. But over the years, Air…

Berlin Airlift begins

Beginning in April 1948, the USSR blocked Western Allies’ access to Berlin as a means of protesting the introduction of the Deutschmark in West Berlin. Following WWII, Berlin had been divided amongst the Allied nations, with France, Great Britain, and the United States taking claim of the West, and the Soviets controlling the East. However, the erstwhile Allies now disputed the future of the city: specifically, whether a capitalist democracy or a…

Berlin Air Drop

At the end of WWII, a defeated Germany was divided amongst the victors, the United States, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, and France. The Soviet Union took control of the Eastern half of Germany, the Western half was divided amongst the US, Great Britain, and France. Like the rest of the country, the capital city of Berlin, sitting dead in the middle of the Soviet-controlled Eastern half, was also divided into four parts, one half being Soviet controlled…

Germany may have been dropped from the Formula One calendar this season, but the country did get to host a Formula E race on the tarmac of the Tempelhof airport. Still, the Berlin ePrix was not without its controversy. After a pair of practice sessions topped by Sebastien Buemi and Lucas di Grassi – both former F1 drivers and Formula E race winners – it was Jarno Trulli (the most experienced grand prix driver on the grid) who took pole position. Di…

Air Berlin Fleet

The first advantage this airline had in comparison to the typical RyanAirs of the world is that on both legs of the journey we didn’t have to queue at all to check in our bags. In Budapest airport, on the way back, I was reminded of the usual hours of waiting around as I walked past hundreds of people queuing for EasyJet, Wizz and RyanAir flights. I couldn’t hide the smug grin as I strolled up to the lady at the check-in desk who was waiting to…
