Pros: Given the price, my expectations weren't high but the long flight from Düsseldorf to Newark was comfortable.
Cons: Attempting to fly standby for a direct flight from heathrow to NYC area wasn't even possible according to the agent at the Lufthansa desk at heathrow. The security agent at heathrow also confiscated a small bottle of eye solution that I just purchased at the Newark airport. Lastly, the heathrow onboarding agent for the 8:05am Eurowings flight 5357 arbitrarily selected my travel bag as too large to carry on. He then became belligerent when I questioned him even threatening removing me from the flight. WTF?!
