The flight was very impressive, 30 minutes is still too short. Not only does it all look great, it's also fun. The crew was very courteous and friendly, everything is explained well - it couldn't be better. Shortcomings: - if you don't have your own car, the journey is either very complicated or very expensive (taxi from Manhattan about $130). - since I didn't know exactly how much I had paid in Germany (you can't see it in the app), I paid an overpriced upgrade. 16 minutes cost €220, 30 minutes cost $295. I paid an additional $80, which would actually be fine if they hadn't sold it to me as a super special price. Conclusion: I would still like to do it again at any time.

Super Erlebnis muss man unbedingt machen wenn man schon mal da ist aber man sollte beachten das die Anreise aus Manhattan nicht so schnell gemacht ist…. Man kommt zwar mit U Bahn und Bus bis ans Ziel aber das ganze dauert! Wir hatten den 30 min Flug mit offenen Türen. Werde ich nächstes mal auf jedenfall noch mal machen! Personal super freundlich und man kann in einem Schließfach seine Sachen verstauen.
