I was rather sceptical of this airline as I had a bad experience with them last year, but was pleasantly surprised at the efficiency and improvement in service. Flight left on time and arrived on schedule. Aircraft clean and modern. Definitely will use the services again in the near future.

Very reasonably priced approx $80 AUD pp for a flight: clean and tidy plane. Price was much less than other options. Luggage allowance was reasonable 23kg and included. Cabin crew were friendly. I would fly again with Vueling.

I enjoyed flying with Vueling. There was enough leg room, the staff were friendly and it seemed perfectly efficient until we had a 3-hour delay on our return flight from Florence to Gatwick.

Very friendly and helpful staff. My flight from Rome arrived more than an hour late and left me very little time to get to my connection flight to Ibiza. First time travelers please be aware that Madrid Airport is very, very large. It will take you about an hour to get from terminal 1 to terminal 4. You have to...

I have flown one time on this airline right now and it was a good experience. The plane was fairly new and clean and the flight attendants very friendly. Be careful though - the leg room is extremely tight and therefore if you are tall take the few extra euros and upgrade to a seat with a bit more leg...

Speak as you find - we fly at least 6 times a year from Cardiff to Malaga with Vueling and almost without exception the service is excellent and I'd award 5 stars. BUT today only 4 stars as no ice no chilled drinks and no milk for coffee - and on the hottest day of the year. Pretty poor show...

We booked the flight in January, after this they cancelled without notification the transfer from Rome to Budapest. After one day! phone conversation they reebok our reservation from Palma to Budapest...

Expensive flight (one day 150 euros BCN-BIO), 2 hours and 45 minutes of delay. No information of the reason of the delay at all. No food, no drinks, no snacks, no water. Wanna seat booked? PAY. Wanna checked bag? PAY. Wanna seat something? PAY. And pay, then pay more!!!
