Air Berlin B777?

I am flying AUH-TXL on AB metal in a few days. The seat map shows a B777 equipment with 3-3-3 seating in economy class.

To my knowledge, Air Berlin does not own any other wide bodies except A332. Is this a leased expansion aircraft?

Anybody ever flown on a B777 with AB?

Doesn't EY operate this route for AB?

Your flight would most likely be operated by 'Privilege Style' on their 777 EC-MIA:

I've only seen their C cabin and it's like the old Asiana (iirc the plane came from Asiana) or Sri Lankan.

You can try to rebook (for free) due to the equipment change. Folks on the German Vielfliegertreff (VFT) reported success in that case.

AB has a pretty bad track record over the last months when it comes to punctuality, equipment changes and cancellations due to financial problems, service provider changes (e.g. at TXL) and shortage of staff.

Spot on, El_Duderito.

The Privilege style charter plane has been serving the route AUH-TXL for Air Berlin for the last few days.

Has anybody ever flown them in economy class?
