Air Europa is Spain's largest privately owned airline and the second largest carrier in Madrid after Iberia.
Travel classes and legroom
For its economy passengers, Air Europa operates a buy on board policy on its short-haul routes, so expect service roughly in line with no-frills carriers. There are, however, no hidden extras like charges for hold baggage.
Short-haul aircraft have the standard high-density seat pitch of 30-31 inches.
Economy (long haul)
Economy seat pitch on Air Europa's long-haul fleet is 31 inches, in line with major competitors but not especially generous. Seats are 17 inches wide.
There are seat-back TVs which show Spanish and English versions of programmes and films.
Other benefits include newspapers, pillows, blankets and a full meal and drink service.
On short-haul services, business class passengers receive newspapers, a welcome drink, refresher towels and complimentary meals and beverages. They also get a luggage allowance of 30 kg.
Seat pitch on European flights is identical to economy, i.e. 30-31 inches.
Club business (long haul)
Business seats are inclined flat beds with a 170-degree recline and a 56-inch pitch. Seats are 20 inches wide and have personal TVs.
