RyanAir flight from Berlin (SXF) to Bucharest (OTP) and back

This time we chose Ryanair because it was so cheap. We paid just 20€ for back and forward, 6 € for the reservation of a seat and 8€ extra for priority. So all together for my two flights, we paid 36€.

I told already that I am in a long-distance relationship and my boyfriend lives in Dubai because of his work and the flights from Dubai to Berlin are always so expensive. That’s why he searched for other destinations from Dubai and found Bucharest. All our flights together were cheaper than the back and forward flights from Dubai and Berlin, so we decided to fly to meet in Bucharest and fly from there together to Berlin. It’s like one extra short trip for free my boyfriend said and he was right.

Airport Schönefeld (SXF)

I arrived two hours earlier at the airport and had to go to Terminal D. For Ryanair flights you have to print your tickets or you can show your ticket with the Ryanair app. The good thing about this is that you don’t have to go to the check-in if you don’t have bags to check in and I did not. So I could directly go to the security check. The queue was quite long but they were fast and it didn’t take much time. After the Security control, I directly fall into a duty-free shop but I just bought one water for 1€ and this is really cheap for a drink at an airport. I decided to eat something in the plane and not in the airport so I went to the gate directly.


At the gate, I waited a little bit til I realized that on my ticket stand priority and I can go to the separate area for the priority guest. It is the same gate but just separates because the priority guest can go to the plane at first. To be honest I didn’t expect much from the plane with this price but when I saw the seats I still was a little bit disappointed. They’re really small but okay for circa 10€ per flight I am not allowed to complain.

I was really hungry and just waited till I can order my food. I had a menu for 10€ it included a warm dish, chips and a drink. So the price is really okay! We are all used to expensive prices on board. I had rice with chicken sweet sour and it tasted quite good for airplane food. What was really annoying was that the tables are relly slippery. i had to make under everyting a tissue so it doesn’t slip down. The personal was really nice on my flight to Bucharest and I am sad that I cannot say the same for my flight back to Berlin. We had two hours delay because there was to much snow on the runway so the personal were really stressed but I don’t think that this is an excuse to be rude to your guests. Right Maria??

Last Words

In general, the flights with Ryanair were good. I mean for the price you really cannot complain. So fo short flights you can take Ryanair and save a lot of money and you will not die but I could not be in this plane for more than 5 hours because it is too closely. We had to stay 4 hours on the plane because of the delay and this was really annoying but thanks god we had the computer to watch another episode of the Blacklist (Btw, a really nice series) and we bought a big package of maltesers and something to drink for 10€. Normally the flight from Berlin to Bucharest is around 2 hours and for this short time, it’s no problem at all to take Ryanair and save some money what you can spend in the vacation then! ?

My flight with Condor from Berlin to Hurghada (DE490)

I chose Condor as our airline because the flight was direct and it’s was cheap, I paid around 280 € per person and this is a good price for a flight on the 26 of December! It’s hard to find a direct flight to Hurghada (HRG) from Berlin. I booked my flight trough Opondoo, a really good website for finding cheap flights!

The flight was from Schönefeld Airport (SXF). We were there quite early at the airport and didn’t have any queue and this was really good! Because right after we checked in we literally run to Burger King! We didn’t have any breakfast at home and were thinking of this before already. We knew that there is a Burger King at the airport but we were not sure if they are open so early or not. But thanks god it was! And to be honest it was a really great breakfast! Right after this we went to our gate and waited for boarding.

Burgerking food in Schönefeld Airport.

We reserved our seats online and also booked a premium menu for 8.99€ per person for the flight because nowadays you don’t get any food at the condor flights. And the flight from Berlin to Hurghada is quite long. Around 4 hours and 10 minutes. And I am always hungry and like to eat on the plane. The menu that we booked was okay for the price.

The seats in Condor are really small. My boyfriend is tall but thanks to our love we could survive it somehow. We watched the minions on his computer and played Subway Surfer! BTW the best game to play if you have a big waiting period. In the plane, you get the paper for the Visa process and have to fill out some things like:

  • Flight number
  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth
  • Passport number
  • Reason for stay
  • Hotelname

But the stewards are there for help and are very kind.
After we landed at Hurghada international Airport it was important for us to be fast in the passport control. A small tip is that you should not be too slow else the passport control will take very much time! Another tip is to not be too fast! Because then you can forget things in the plane. We forgot a small bag from the duty-free shop in the plane, but we got it back fast after we talked with someone from the staff and for sure he wanted a little gift from us for his help.

Welcome to Hurghada!
