Had a nice flight from Cologne to Marsa Alam and back. On the way to Marsa Alam we got into a jetstream so we had some trubulence. The captain explained trough the speakers what a jetstream was and how long the turbulence should last. The way back was a very smooth flight. Prices in flight are ok, not to expensive...

Day one our flight was cancelled so the crew had a hard job to make 171 people on board happy! They managed to do it. First of all the Chief-Pilot spoke in front of all passengers and all the crewmembers where smiling while doing the job. Because of the cancellation we all received free drinks on board which is a...

We have flown with this airlines for the first time. It was great service, nice and kind people, safe flight. We will definitely fly with them again and again. Also when you have questions you can ask on their whatsapp and they answer really fast and try to help you. I really can recommend SunExpress Airlines.

Apparently, Lufthansa has established a strategic alliance with SunExpress. I recently purchased a ticket HAJ-FRA-MAD in the Lufthansa website. At no point during booking you were advised that the FRA-MAD flight was serviced by SunExpress, not Lufthansa. None of the information provided on my electronic reservation allows me to check-in online on SunExpress website, necessary to, for example, confirm booking...

Lovely and relaxing trip. Staff on board okay. There is really good legroom. If you do not order the plane's food on board, you can buy some sandwiches there. Pretty good.

Absolutely woeful Travelled Business Class via Lufthansa. Worse than economy. Never again. Poor and unfriendly service from cabin crew except one young lady. The meal was awful. I would never travel with them again.

I am so disappointed with Sun Express. After arriving in Antalya and collecting our bags we noticed our brand new suitcase (first time I had used it too!) had been ripped all down the side and all the material was hanging off. Great! So we took it to the lost and found office in the airport and completed a dorm...
