A chance to compare Spanair with Iberia

A while ago I wrote about my experiences flying to Lanzarote with Iberia. Well, last weekend I had the chance to compare those experiences with Spanair when I flew to Madrid for the Great Madrid Escape.

Actually there is not much to choose between them in many areas – particularly in German language skills. Spanair cabin crews made the same sort of mistakes that the Iberia ones did, ie. they spoke in English far too fast for non-native speakers to understand, and on flights between Frankfurt and Madrid there are not too many of those!

But the real difference was that the Spanair flights included food. OK, so it was a couple of sandwiches and a small bar of chocolate, but soft drinks were included as were tea and coffee. This, for me, is what makes a big difference over the Iberia flights. I could rely on getting something to eat and it didn’t cost me an unreasonable amount to buy – it was included in the price of the ticket.

The ticket, by the way, was very good value for money!

    […] The other consideration that potential travellers should consider is the location of the airports in Germany.   Düsseldorf-Weeze is 75km from Düsseldorf, and Frankfurt-Hahn is a staggering 126km from Frankfurt itself.  It remains to be seen if the additional expense of getting to those airports outweighs the savings of the flight, or whether tourists will remain loyal to existing carriers.
