Flying on Vueling Airllines

We are looking to book RS Basque Tour first and fly from Bilboa to join RS 14 day Spain Tour in Barcelona. We have one day between the tours. Can anyone share their experiences flying on Vueling Airlines or other modes of transportation? Thanks!

The price is right, they get you there intact, you don't have to sit in troop seats, and they don't allow farm animals in the cabin.

What else is there to know about any carrier?

The train will take longer and cost about the same.

The Bilbao airport is up on the mesa east if town and is a pain in the tail to get to.

They are a good plane....if they do not cancel your reservations made months earlier with no warning whatsoever....but otherwise a good flight.....speaking from experience here....two flights, Madrid to Paris and Paris to Madrid cancelled ...and the substitute flights were delayed, one for several hours......

Debbie,

I used Vueling last year from Sevilla to Paris, and it was a great flight - no problems. The staff were efficient and friendly and they delivered my checked luggage in one piece, so no complaints.

I flew Vueling from Rome (FCO) to Palermo and then back to Rome in June/July 2014. Uneventful flight. Staff were nice. The price was right. I had paid to check a bag and had no issues. I would fly them again.

Many staff have used Vueling and been happy with them over the past several years, for instance around Spain, Italy, and Paris to Italy.

Vueling or european airlines in general have a different view on "carry-on luggage". If you are just taking a carry-on make sure you verify the size limit!!! My small carry-on that I use every where in the US and Canada was too big by european standards and I ended up checking it in and spending $65 each time.... for a tiny bag. Other than that we had no problems with anything else.

does anyone know the actual size for carry on? We heard this situation with Ryan Air, but not with Vueling

It's bound to be on their web site - - along with the weight restriction.

The story goes, Ryan Air makes it's carry on rules on the fly.
