The only American Frequent Flyer tickets in Business so far for next summer (2014) include Chicago to Berlin to Paris on Air Berlin. I have two tickets on hold for 5 days. Other threads on the Air Travel Forum paint a dismal picture of Air Berlin. I'm having second thoughts.
Comments on the seats are negative - but the Air Berlin website seems to show seats that recline to the flat position and look rather new. Anyone with recent experience on this flight in business?
The other negative is all of the stories about lost luggage - but lost luggage happens with many airlines. Our worst experiences have been with American and BA actually. Recent experiences on Air Berlin?
We have a long layover in Berlin - any experience with the Air Berlin Lounge? Are there luggage lockers for our carry-ons in case we decide to go into Berlin for a few hours. Thanks.
