This is great news here in New England (and Rhode Island)! A viable option to Europe from a no hassle, easy to use airport, PVD. And checking some of the flights next summer shows some decent prices as well. I always fly from JFK or Boston to Europe and having this choice is the icing on the cake.

Yup, Condor offers decent service at a great price. But leg room is the worst I've seen in any flight crossing the Atlantic. Mind you, the food wasn't any better but I can live with that ...

We flew Vancouver, BC to Frankfurt return with Condor. You can't beat their price point. Basic service, long line-ups and cramped seating. I was lucky - I had an aisle seat and I could stretch my legs partly into the aisle (when no flight attendant was coming).

Just reading an article in local paper that with the new smaller but more efficient 787, there are airlines planning to have direct flights to Europe from more mid-tier cities in the US

"I had an aisle seat and I could stretch my legs partly into the aisle (when no flight attendant was coming)." And passengers weren't walking to/from the toilets?

I have flown Condor on two roundtrips out of Seattle in recent years, once in Economy and once in Premium Economy. Economy was not appreciably worse than any other Economy seat, but I think they're all bad. Condor's Premium Economy product, though, is great. For only a few hundred dollars more, I had so much leg room that I had my legs fully extended out in front of me, as did my over 6 foot travel companion. They do have chaotic check-in in Frankfurt, but there is separate check-in for Premium.

Maybe I should have posted this in the "General Europe" section. Because while Condor is Frankfurt based it actually connects to many great places, predominently in Southern Europe.
