When I opened Vueling's Facebook page (after I booked a trip) I was a bit scared. There were many people complaining about everything, mostly about lost baggage that was never refunded. It looked like they don't care about their customers, BUT I had no bad experience with this airline. We were a bit late and there was not on-line check-in...

This airline is a great lost cost carrier. They have many flights in and out of Spain and in between. The seats are a bit smaller, but on a flight for an hour and a half it is not a big deal. I've flown BCN to MAD, ORY to BCN several times.

At first, I was a bit leery of using a low-cost carrier for intra-Europe travel and Vueling itself had experienced a few major issues throughout July. Those fears where quickly put to rest with two trips (the 2nd one being Rome-Dubrovnik) going glitch free What I liked: Quick and efficient check-in process, including bag drop-off. Plane had an on-time departure...

Absolute basic service, little leg room and chaotic boarding. After allocating seats the on board staff decided on free seating as a result the flight was delayed

Our first flight with the Spanish Airline - and very good it was. Compared to other "budget" airlines there was a lack of "hard sell". The trolley service didn't commence until an hour into the (two hour) flight and there was no mention of scratch cards or bus tickets. A good experience.

First time with vueling and we will surely come again. The flight went fine. We departed on time and arrived on time. On flight the service was good with friendly staff. We were thirsty and the crew gave us free mineral water.

Customer services were so unhelpful I asked to speak to a manager, the representative refused and when I asked for her name she gave me a false name and left no trail of being into our booking. Vueling is the only airline that victimises people with mobility restrictions, unlike all other airlines when upon booking you are able to get...

Vueling booking and ticket but not sure if this was Vueling plane/crew or not. Plane was just plain white with no Vueling livery. Flight attendants were not wearing usual Vueling uniform. Food trolley was marched purposefully down the aisle with no attempt to ask us if we wanted any food or drink. When we asked for food later, we were...

Worst flight I have ever been on. The seats were practically on top of each other - very claustraphobic. Our booking said complimentary refreshments but these did not materialise. The staff chatted amongst themselves the whole time they were serving from the trolley, they were very unapproachable & as someone who isn't fond of flying I definitely will not fly...
