Booked weekend break in Paris flying out Saturday & returning Monday, but have had to rebook with a real airline. First our outbound flight times were changed by 8 hours which messed up our plans - then return flight was cancelled altogether. They offered an alternative flight home via Barcelona , which was actually 3 days earlier than planned-on the...

I've taken Vueling several times - most recently from Birmingham to Barcelona - and I can safely say that they make flying Ryanair feel like luxury. There is no other budget airline that comes close to their ridiculously tiny leg room. Add to that the 'no online check in' system at B'ham and you can wait over an hour to...

Travelling with my cat I cabin is an obstacle course with many airlines. Vueling on the contrary let me include my pet directly into my online reservation along with additional bagage. This convenience allowed me to pay all charges before arriving at the airport an saved last minute time and worry (FYI most airlines make you go to a special...

For those looking for a time saving yet affordable travel between Rome and Munich, Vueling is a good option. A summary of my experience: 1. Check-in was smooth. We had pre-paid for extra luggage online, which is a more economical option than paying at the airport 2. Flight interiors were average. Crew was courteous. 3. In-flight meals were on payment...

I am always so cautious with budget airlines, but these guys are the sneakiest ones out there. They default your payment option to credit card very subtlely. I changed it back, and then proceeded. I then chose visa debit as payment, entered in my card details and when I clicked pay, they went and charged me for the credit card...

First time flying airline and there were no surprises. Definitely worth it to do online check-in and pre-print boarding passes. One tip is to check the television screens for gate information and clarify with the ticketing agent if there is a discrepancy. Our agent originally provided the wrong gate information, but made a quick call to confirm that the gate...

Avoid this airline at all costs. BA use them all the time now so check before you press the "continue to payment" button. I was stranded at Rome for 6 hours in July after our flight was delayed, and they didn't even have the decency to offer any tokens for refreshments. Forget trying to claim the statuary compensation with this...

Absolutely awful airline! I have to let people know so that they don't lose money like we have. They cancelled flights we had booked, offering alternative flights on different days which we couldn't do, so we opted for a refund. However they only gave us half our money back!!! And this was after months of threatening legal action as they...

It used to be a low cost "OK" airline but now i think is one of the worst low cost airlines in the market. Being the low cost of Iberia and based in Barcelona i sadly have to fly frequently with them, the loyalty program is a joke and they make ir really hard to add the miles to the...

The staff where incredible I was seriously impressed by the level of customer service, the seats where uncomfortable and you felt squished. I would use this airline again based on the way I was treated. Thank you for begin so lovely and making my flight so enjoyable!
