After a long time with Israeli airlines, I decided to try new airline that I never flew with them - Air Berlin. The take off in the back flight and the price were better than UP, beacuse I needed to take a suitcase (I was in Berlin for 10 days).

After a short time in the check in and in the border inspection, I finally reached to the Duty free shops.

I only bought someting to eat and drink and then walked to the gate.

Approximatly one hour before landing, the crew serve small roll bread. It wasn't sastisfying. Even AB wrote that the food type is snack, I hoped to better than small roll bread.

Gate view:

The seat was very nice, there wasn't something broken or dirty (sorry that I don't have some pictures). The seat near to me (9D) was empty, so I had nice place.

The terminal in TXL is bewildering. After long time I found how to exit.

    Thanks for this FR.

    Too bad there's no picture of the snack to see why you say it's so bad.

    Thanks for sharing this FR!

    Fantastic photos, really like the shot during descent into TXL.

    Even AB wrote that the food type is snack, I hoped to better than small roll bread.
    - Was it just a roll or was it a sandwich? AB is kind of LCC for regional flights from what I've heard.

    The terminal in TXL is bewildering.
    - Hilarious because most people know exactly what you are talking about.

    PS - Please add AB to your flight number.

      Thank You.
      It was just a roll. In charter flight in the past I got sandwich (Like in Sundor) and even meal (like in Israir).

      TXL terminal is one of the worst I ever saw in Europe! And I was in many of airports in Europe. I was in Amsterdam (Wonderful terminal), Budapest, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, even Munich A1F terminal is better! (It's hard to go to there from SIXT return point, but It's very clean and There was small duty free shop and caffetria)
      Even Varna airport is not bewildering like TXL!
