Air Berlin Announces Nonstop Flights to Chicago

Chicago O'Hare's busy week still hasn't ended. German carrier, Air Berlin, has just announced that it will begin direct flights from Berlin to Chicago beginning next year. The nonstop service from the German capital will begin on March 23, 2013 with 3 flights a week. On May 1st the service will increase to 5 flights a week. The flights will arrive in Chicago at 12:00 noon and depart back to Germany at about 5:00 PM. The service will utilize Airbus a330-200 aircraft. Air Berlin is a member of the One World Alliance, which means connections with American Airlines, who is also an alliance member with a large hub at O'Hare, will be very easy. Chicago will be Air Berlin's 8th destination in the United States. The airline already serves Chicago, Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York-JFK, and San Francisco.

    Think twice before flying Air Berlin. They might steal some items from your baggage.

    I was unlucky enough to board a flight AB 8121 on 08.11.11 from Zurich to Berlin. As a result, Air Berlin delayed my baggage for several days and, upon its recovery, I found that two souvenir Swiss Army knives were missing. Of course, they didn’t return or compensate the stolen items. They very reluctantly condescended to answer my emails.

    Well, it was a horrible experience. You diligently pay money for their services. In return, they delay your baggage, spoil your holiday and, as a crowning achievement, dispossess you of your belongings.
