Flights Review

Dec 31, 2019

It would be nice if you could select a seat of your choosing for free. It feels like Vueling is cheating you with the random free seat selection which usually always places you in the aisle. The rest of their service is great. It’s just a shame when airlines nickel and dime their clients like this.

Everything good !!

In general the trip was very comfortable. However, my inflight entertainment system was broken for most of the 7+ hour flight so, that was a bit disappointing.
