Hi everybody!

I am a 4U "freguent flyer" and in the recent times I allways asked myself why 4U is doing things which a normal low-cost airline doesn't do. Now they start assigning seats. Isn't that a little strange? The same goes for their flex-fares.

Furthermore I would like to share my experience with the so-called "Boomerang-Club". It is the frequent flyer programm of 4U. Now I finally got the miles together in order to get a free flight. But guess what, allways if I want to spend this miles, 4U says that I can't use them on the flights I wanted. I only could use the miles on dates I would never fly. What is this about?

Furthermore the extra costs go up and up. My most flown route is BUD-CGN and vice versa. LH offers sometimes fares including taxes for 150 EUR BUD-DUS roundtrip. I am thinking of flying them instead of 4U.

What are your thoughts on 4U?

Regards Tom

Honestly, I would fly LH then instead of 4U. I suppose that LH is not going non-stop from CGN to BUD but if the price is the same or lower I would go for it.

I have flown them and I was not overly impressed.BUT i paid only 15 € so actually if I pay that less I expect nothing then a seat.  Smile

Weren't they supposed to merge with TUIfly.com in the near future?
