"narrow and cramped"

(United States)

The economy seats on Air Berlin A330-200 were narrow and cramped; if you are over 5'7" tall, good luck to you. The aisles were generally narrow, and towards the rear of the plane, they were more so. However, the video screens on the seat backs were of adequate size and worked fairly well.

"seat pitch is the same"

(Germany)

We flew Düsseldorf to Curaçao on 28 Dec. They charge a fee for different seat locations and we paid for preferred seating which means you disembark faster - not true, so money for nothing and the seat pitch is the same. Outbound flight was okay but with poor cabin service. Very intimate and only 1 bottle of small water offered during the 10 hour and 30 minute flight, most airlines on long haul do juice and water rounds frequently. Seat pitch is very very uncomfortable. The cabin crew were very scruffy. They were taking companions as it was new year and more time seem to be spent with them then the fare paying customer. The return flight was 9th December and the cabin crew were very different, attention to detail and smart and friendly. Once again seat pitch is very poor and uncomfortable.Food on board was very tasty and well presented. I did have some queries prior to travel but responses differed between telephone and email communication - then resulted in no communication at all. My view is that the airline is not very customer focused and trying to compete in the long haul field with little experience. I also felt safety procedures were compromise on the connecting flights, lack of proper and thorough cabin secure checks ie. People still using mobiles for take off and landing, seat backs reclined during the stage of flight and hand baggage not stowed properly under seats.

"miss the coat hook"

(Germany)

You pretty much get the average European economy class product on Air Berlin. Legroom is OK and seats are relatively comfortable for a short flight. Seat recline is average. I miss the coat hook on Air Berlin flights because it means that you have to store your jacket in the overhead compartments and there's usually someone who will place their luggage on your jacket.

"seat arrangement is an audacity"

(United States)

The only resaon I fly Air Berlin is that the flight leaves in Ft Myers and lands in Duesseldorf. The seat arrangement is an audacity. I used to be able to at least have a 3 hr nap going to Germany - not any more. It is impossible to get a rest at night. I am 5'7", average medium sized, weighing 190 lbs. The width of the seat is for children, not adults. If Air Berlin is in trouble it might be because of the severe disrespect to their customers.

"no room to put my legs"

(United States)

The lack of legroom on an aircraft designed for long-haul flights is outrageous. I am 6'1" (1.85 mt) and almost went crazy as I had no room to put my legs - especially when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I understand airlines want to squeeze as many people as possible, but this went beyond what could be considered as reasonable. I will probably never fly Air Berlin again.

"prefer a slim seat"

(Germany)

It was an old "old style" seat which wasn't a slim seat. It was of course used but it was ok. But I prefer a slim seat for shorter flights which are mostly used throuGH the Air Berlin fleet.

"seatpitch like this is torture"

(Netherlands)

Flight from Dusseldorf to Abu Dhabi 6 hours with a seatpitch like this is torture! They should warn all customers over 175 cm not to fly Air Berlin.
