It is only a few days before New Years Eve in 2016 and I am on my way in the Airberlin Business Class to Abu Dhabi. The idea for this trip was very spontaneous, because of a very good redemption promotion from the Frequent Flyer Programm Topbonus. Only 63.000 Miles plus 187€ instead of 90.000 Miles and 187€ Tax. This is a great Deal!

My Journey starts at 9 o’clock in the Morning in East Berlin . As a Airberlin Business Class Traveller you have the opportunity to use the Chauffeur Service. Punctual the Sixt driver arrives in a brand new BMW 535d. He is very friendly and attentive. The Sixt Limousine Service provides some Magazines, a Bottle of Water and a Charger for your Mobile phone. My drop-of ist directly in front of the Gate A0 . A check-in is not necessary, because I travel with Hand Luggage and I already have my Boardingpass. Now its time for a small Breakfast at the Air France Lounge.

Twenty Minutes before Departure, I am on my way to the Gate. After passport control, its time to board the plane. My Home for the next 6 hrs ist the seat 6C. Its in the last row on the left side. The FA helped me friendly with the luggage and asked me what I want to drink. This decison was easy - Champagne of course :-). The Purserette took time to welcomes me on Board and after that I recived a hot towel for refreshing. Gradually the Business Class the fills and all Seats are occupied. Now we’re ready for pushback and scheduled Departure.

Take-off thrust set - we took off westbound and heading to Poland. As the plane reaches the final altitude, the Aperitif Service begins. I stared with a Gin Tonic. As a Airberlin Platinum member, I was asked first, what I liked to eat. Thats a nice move! I started with a Thuna Tartare with Mango Cilantro Slasa. For the Maincourse I tried the Beef cubes with a delicious Cranberry Sauce and mashed potatoes. The Meal was great! Finally I got my Dessert - a Nougat Tarte with a cup of coffee. A compliment to the FAs - everyone was very attentive and fast. The Gin Tonics were awesome.

After the great meal, I tried to watch a movie. The selection was not as good as I expected. Only 40 Movies and Series. My decision felt to „The Independence Day“, „The Nice Guys“ and one of my favorite Series: „The Big Bang Theory“. During the flight, I was served with some Potatoe Chips.

An half hour before Landing in Abu Dhabi, I recieved a Fast Track Card for entering the VAE from my Flight Attendant. He also took time to say thank you for flying Airberlin today. This was a really nice move. Our Airbus landed and parked at the Cargo Ramp. There was already the Bus who took the Business Class Passangers to the Terminal.

I like you YouTube trip report! I am not sure, if I would book a flight in Business Class with AB. It's ok, if the price is right!

I already make a Video during my stay in the Ethiad First Class Lounge in Abu Dhabi. Between 3 and 6 am in the Morning it was completely empty. The dinner was great and the Bartender made a very good Job :D
