They were doing some sort of passport control and only had 1 person for all of economy. It took forever and seemed unnecessary since we all had our documents checked when we were at the check in counter.

Pros: "Not one thing about my experience."
Cons: "The alertness of the staff, the boarding process, the knowledge of the staff. Not breaking my luggage!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "No entertainment, un friendly crew, terrible food"
Pros: "Great helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Checking our bag was a nightmare. All bag check-in was at kiosk which we couldn't use because we had to pay to check our bag. Had to find a desk in another terminal to check bag, then pay an another desk for said checked bag. We saved money by ticketing this way but we almost missed our flight"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful. If you travel Business Class it is very pleasant. But if you are traveling Economy the boarding management and economy seats suck! Many people were complaining about how narrow the economy seats are on the A320/330 aircraft."
Cons: "Swiss has finally done it! If you are a person who is large framed, around 225 lbs or higher you will not fit into their economy seats. I'm quite athletic and not obese but large framed (ex- football player), I could not sit squarely in the seat as my hips were severely pinched. Misery :("
Pros: "I never made the connection because the flight was cancelled. I liked nothing about the flight and to boot I got sick because I was up for over 40 hours straight... 11 of them spent in Customer Service line."
Cons: "It was a terrible two day experience that would have turned into over 3 if I did not cancel my flight plans.... vacation ruined."
Pros: "Nice crew, plenty of food and snacks available. Good wine."
Cons: "Delayed flight, almost missed connection, told on first flight had to check carry-on then they lost our luggage on the connection, cramped seats, but i did pay for the cheapest seats"
Pros: "Crew was attentive to passenger needs in a quiet way: without fanfare, did all possible to make it a pleasant, comfortable trip. In fact, went out of their way to get me a wheelchair ride to next flight, which I dearly needed"
Cons: "First flight was delayed due to circumstances outside of airline’s control. They managed to get us there and help me with wheelchair, etc to make flight. Great service and kindness"
Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and professional, on top of the nice plane condition, which made the trip very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food standard seemed to be lowered a little bit, but still very well prepared."
Pros: "Excellent service all around and great flight timing with delays and awaiting for transfer flights to land"
Cons: "I travel a least 5 times a year and Kayak is always my option."
Pros: "Crew very courteous as usual"
Cons: "Lately all Swiss flights I have taken are late. This last one was 1 hour late. No more sandwich is offered, or even chips or peanuts. The only drink available for free was a glass of water! Not even a small bottle!! Bye bye Swiss service!"
Pros: "Crew great service"
Cons: "Boarding was slow —delayed takeoff for nearly an hour"
Pros: "great staff"
Pros: "timely departure"
Cons: "too hot in the plane!!"
Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."
Cons: "It was extremely warm on the flight; consequently, I was unable to sleep. This was my second overly warm Swiss Air flight. After numerous complaints on the first flight, the temperature was lowered, but the second flight remained warm."
Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Flight delayed."
Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."

Pros: "The staff was polait"
Cons: "No option to make zhek in No opthin for vegeterian The media in my seat didn't work"
Pros: "The crew fed us well throughout the flight--and we got free wine with dinner. The food was pretty good for airplane food. We got fresh dinner rolls, salad, dessert, and Swiss cheese. We got ice cream part way through the trip. I loved that we got a piece of Swiss chocolate on each leg of the journey. The crew was friendly. There was a screen at each seat where you could watch movies or TV, listen to music, or track your flight. The entertainment was free, and the crew provided free earphones. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room. It makes it pretty uncomfortable for an 11-1/2 hour flight. The boarding was a little confusing, but no serious issues."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, air crew was friendly, helpful and patient. The food was actually really quite good. Entertainment kept my little ones occupied and seated."
Cons: "There were quite a lot of in-flight announcements by the flight crew - which disrupted the in-flight entertainment and irritated the little ones. The garbage dispenser in the bathroom seemed a bit small for the task."
Pros: "Most everything about the process."
Cons: "Person in front reclined chair fully and left virtually no room for sitting!"
Pros: "I liked everything except my luggage"
Cons: "I did not like the way Beatice of Swiss Air in Zurich completely rushed me at the gate without trying to talk to Mr. Mueller at checkin 1. I told her that He had starte an ardious process in recovering my luggage. She visibly tried to rush me through the process and told me there was othing that could be done. It felt really ugly to be lied to right to my face, when she diditn try to connect with someone from her own staff who had tried alot of heard to work to help me rectify the luggage question. For all we know, my luggage was in Zuruch, and her actions impeded the luggage from getting onto my plane."
Pros: "The crew members were professional and we really appreciate their high quality of service. Love the food and we enjoyed the wide selections of entertainment that was provided."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "staff were very helpful"
Pros: "Staff & service were super nice & friendly. In this day & age that airline travel is getting really hectic, it was a breath of fresh air to see friendly & dedicated staff who clearly enjoy what they are doing."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "MANAGER WAS FABULOUS STAFF WAS FABULOUS"
Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "No outlet for charging electronics. No free checked luggage. My carry on (of usual size) was deemed a bit too big so I was forced to check it in."
Pros: "Comfy seats, free drinks, pretty good food. Excellent flight attendants and an eloquent pilot."
Pros: "The staff was just fabulous! Very nice and sincere. Beautiful smiles. I admired the lipstick on one and she came back and had the name of it written down for me. MAC here I come."
Pros: "Food wag good, plane comfortable"
Cons: "Transfer at Zurich"
Cons: "SWISS always turns on the air conditioning too high on intercontinental flights. It is HOT inside the cabins. The entertainment system is very outdated, small screen and old and used hand set. Claiming to be a premium airline is unfortunately very overstated if you are unlucky to catch the old business class planes. Only few have changed to the new versions (777s) - Make sure to catch those."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight attendants not friendly, constantly bumped me and never excused themselves. Food not so good and temperature too hot this flight. I was constantly putting on and taking off my jacket. Movie selection seems to be going downhill also. All that being said, I'm grateful for every safe landing."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."
Cons: "The Seats were real cramped and the entertainment system was outdated"
Pros: "Courteous staff,"
Cons: "Only one food choice, meatloaf + mashed potato. I don't care for meatloaf."
Cons: "There is little that can be done to make a long haul flight comfortable when a baby is screaming and crying for it's entire duration. Its behaviour cannot be helped. But it certainly didn't make the flight comfortable, nor did the young child kicking incessantly at the back of my and my daughter's seats. This could have occurred on any flight, but it didn't contribute to having a positive experience on this one. The flight attendant serving breakfast completely ignored that fact that I was awake and strolled past without asking if I would like anything as meals were being served. I informed another flight attendant that we hadn't been offered breakfast and she was able to provide us with meals. Besides this the cabin crew were courteous and pleasant. I've flown with Swiss on other occasions and have had better experiences. I'd like to think this was just a one off and not representative of the level of service that Swiss normally provides."
Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "Impossible to work on laptop with front seat in recline"
Pros: "This flight was absolutely amazing the staff, boarding , food entertainment and comfort were highly delightful I would book again with Swiss Airlines in a heartbeat thank you so much kayak you are amazing"
Pros: "Seats very confortabile"
Cons: "My flight was last minute canceled and then one of my replacement flights was canceled"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Some games for kids"
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Pros: "On time and the staff were very good. The food was not great, buy good."
Cons: "Tried and was unable to choose my seat in advance for flight and thus had to wait until I arrived at the gate. Thus I was unable to sit with my daughter. Was promised seats could be chosen 24 hours in advance, but was not allowed to either on line or via phone."
Pros: "Crew was awful. Grumpy and not friendly. They hate their customers especially children."
Cons: "This was my worst experience on any Lufthansa flights. Worst ever!"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the crew were good and supportive but seemed a bit too busy when called upon. Especially with travelling with twins, I had a bit of trouble getting their attention for my own meals as when serving was done I was feeding the kids."
Cons: "Give more attention to travellers with infants as they really need your support. Had twins and whenever meals were served, I couldn’t take them but whenever I buzzed, was asked to wait but then nothing came through. At the end of the flight, I had missed all my meals, no hot water for kids milk"
Pros: "The crew was nice and efficient. There was no meal service because they had catering problems, but they tried to accommodate small children with candy cars and chips."
Cons: "There was no meal service because of catering problems. Though it was done for our safety (the crew mentioned some problems in prior flights), not having a back-up plan of sorts would be good for an airline of Lufthansa's stature."
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Pros: "Our flight from Hamburg to Munich arrived late. Lufthansa met about 10 of us at our arrival gate, took us through a side channel Passport Control and then mini-bused us to our gate. We arrived at the gate 15 minutes after scheduled departure but our plane was there. Very considerate."
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was good! Boarding was fast and organized!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "Service and hospitality. On dot service with no major delays."
Pros: "Check-in was speedy and pleasant"
Cons: "Plane small with seats very cramped even for someone quite small."
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Prior flight from Zagreb to Munich was delayed 1 hour due to inclement weather - not the airline's fault. However although I made my connecting flight, my suitcase didn't. I'm writing this the next day & waiting for my suitcase to be delivered."
Cons: "There was no announcement about the delay & the reason why. We found out by reading the board. The passengers found out from each other what caused the delay. Passengers would experience less anxiety if they were informed what's going on."
Pros: "The facilities were really great!"
Cons: "The food - it was in VERY small quantity"
Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"
Pros: "The amenities, even in Economy, were excellent. Plenty of good food and drink...included. On time departure/arrival."
Cons: "Our original seats, which we pre-selected for a $45 per seat fee, were changed, without notifying us. Fortunately, I discovered this and was able to get similar seats by calling customer service. I was told we qualified for at least a partial refund..we'll see if this happens."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Cons: "United charged me a Bagage fee of 25 dollars and they where not supposed to since it was a international flight. The knowledge of the agent was not very good. Now I will have to write to Lufthansa and hoping they will reemburse me."
Pros: "Very stable aircraft with attentive staff"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "All was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost 6 of our bags and left us with no information or compensation. I sent them emails but there is no response from customer service. Costed us $500 to buy things on emergency basis for our family and they delivered the bags after 2 days. This was very unprofessional and Lufthansa has to pay for it. Can you please help. Next time we will certainly have to avoid The airline as their gate transfer in Frankfurt is horrible with very rude security staff who has no interest helping our family to board the flight on tight connection. Instead the person decided to go on his break right when we were at the X-ray screening. How rude and unthoughtful."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Boarding process was longer than expected. Seat assigment from check in was not honored at the gate. FA asked me to switch seat only to favor passenger from Germany."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, Lufthansa was not able to reschedule the same day."
Pros: "Departure was a bit late but we were informed. Even with that delay arrived on time. Coach seat was okay for me. Movies offered could be better but there was enough for my taste. It was a night flight anyway, so I was asleep most of the time."
Pros: "Flight Crew"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad."
Pros: "Service was great, pilots were amazing no decompression pain in my ears."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in Warsaw for 1:30 hours"
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent all around, really made the experience a pleasure. Also very helpful when I couldn't locate my wallet as I was preparing to deplane, both in terms of helping me look and explaining what I could do if it didn't turn up (eventually it did, before I disembarked)."
Cons: "The seats, while relatively comfortable on their own, were really jammed in; it felt cramped even as a smaller adult. And the boarding process in Washington seemed to take a very long time."
Pros: "They were average in terms of comfort and crew. You can only get so conofortable in economy class and the crew did what they were expected to. I did feel that my empty meal tray was left on my table for quite some time though."
Cons: "We had no individual entertainment on the flight, only very old CRT screens hanging from the ceiling, circa 1995. They did show movies but the sound quality was poor and my headphone jack did not work so I had to share with my husband. They offered no explanation for this, since their website clearly promises individual screens for international flights. When asked, the FA simply said "this isn't our usual plane for these types of flights." However, we had the same issue when flying to Frankfurt with them, so the company seems to just be lying. The food can barely pass as food. Everything was ice cold except the main dinner entree, even the bread. The only vegetable available throughout our 8+ hour flight was shredded carrots absolutely swimming in mayonnaise. The boarding process was exceedingly slow and they would not allow use of cell phones for boarding passes, although their check in provides the attachments. This required probably 1/4 of those boarding to have to step aside to another line for a paper copy. Again, no apologies or explanations from the company. Overall, I wish I had shopped around a bit more and chosen another airline. International flying is supposed to be somewhat enjoyable, even in economy class. Instead, this was the longest 8+ hours of my life."
Pros: "My flight was business and it was excellent the staff was great and I think his name is Peter"
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "I don't have my luggage yet!"
Pros: "The staff was so accommodating and friendly! Great trip!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Plain in excellent condition and very clean. Friendly staff and welcome."
Cons: "Should have mobile phone chargers on board."
Pros: "Comfortable, left and arrived on time , smooth check in"
Cons: "No entertainment (no screens on back of seat ) , no provision for priority boarding for star alliance gold member(security line)"
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, about what you'd expect from a short-duration flight on a major airline."
Cons: "I wished to change to an earlier flight with plenty of seats available. the Lufthansa ticket agent stated the only way, as I had booked a "light" fare, was to pay a full-price one-way economy ticket--plus luggage--for about 380 euros with no credit for my current ticket. After booking a day-room at a local hotel, I checked in on-line and discovered for 115 euros I could have upgraded to business class, with luggage included, and been accommodated on schedule changes. My suggestion to Lufthansa is if they intend to rip their customers off it's best NOT TO LET THEM FIND OUT ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE, or if they're simply too incompetent to match marketing offers to their booking department they could save considerable income and reputation by closing the ticket office. As it was, the impression was a low-class money grab. It's not like they can count on their partnership with United to make them look good."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled our return flight from Rome two days ahead of departure. Spent the whole day trying to contact them by calling from Rome on American phone which ended up costing over $100, eight times the.l hold was over an hour after which Lufthansa just hanged up. Here is German "reliability, responsibility, and organization" in action!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "crew was very polite & attentive; relatively comfortable even though the flight was packed; free cognac after dinner, even in economy class!"
Cons: "some of the food was only so-so, but still not bad"
Cons: "1 meal 10 hour flight 6 hr delay. - temp control"
Pros: "Food , great service"
Pros: "Pre-bording with children and nice entertainment selection of movies, tv shows and music."
Cons: "rhe FA was saying that they have either pasta or chicken and they had beef, when asked what kind of pasta he said how would I know."
Cons: "Food"

Everything was very u nice except the info we needed was lacking. We needed to stamp our boarding passes at a separate desk and nobody informed us

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew, smooth transfer between flights, comfortable adjustable headrest, easy to request special meal online before flight."
Cons: "Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't of great importance anyway."
Pros: "Stewards dis perfect job"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "They have Economy class seats on the business class. Uncomfortable."
Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Good flight , bad flight delay and luggage."
Cons: "To be on time"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I don't like the movie options. Some are quite sexual and can be seen around the plane."
Cons: "Was unable to take the trip. Unable to rebook without excessive fees. Lost $2000."
Pros: "I was able to get good seats, front of the plane. 3rd row for all my flights. pretty decent leg room"
Cons: "flight was delayed, 2nd Austtian flight delayed in the same day"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"
Cons: "Team desn’t have much Client focus, seems to have more experience with cargo shipments"
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "When we checked in, we were told we didn't have seats because the plane was overbooked. We waited at the gate for information. The attendants were curt and not helpful, they told us they had no information. After the plane was boarded, we were finally given tickets with seats and rushed onto the plane. When we arrived at the Sarajevo airport, our luggage and the luggage of many passengers did not arrive! We waited in a line for 1.5 hours to put in a claim for our suitcases. It was not a good experience."
Cons: "Hand luggage not allowed onboard due to being just a bit oversized -- just its wheels only. Never had this problem with the same luggage with other airlines, only with Austrian."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Food terrible"
Cons: "Flight was late departing Cairo Changing flights from Cairo to Amsterdam was scheduled at 50 minutes. I asked the male flight attendant about changing airplanes, said our new gate was right next to our arriving gate. He said no problem. He failed to mention we had to go through customs and security again, and walk almost a Kilometer in the process. Fortunately they held the Amsterdam plane because many passengers would have missed it. I did not appreciate the lack of information from the flight attendant, however holding the plane was a godsend."
Cons: "late flight once again"
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Pros: "Plane, pilots and the leader of the crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant in the back needs to be more educated"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Red uniforms are ok but red tights awful"
Pros: "Excellent flight Excellent food"
Pros: "the flight missed my connection and they were AWESOME in handling it, getting me on a Swiss Air flight. That flight also missed its connection and Swiss Air took great care to put me up in a hotel. They made a frustrating situation so much smoother!"
Cons: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Cons: "The worst airline, customer service ever"
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "No food terrible idea to serve orange, oll dos nasty hands Stick to a site"
Cons: "My flight was Dec 11 at 8:00 from Budapest to Vienna. And from Viena I have to fly to Minsk. So on Dec 10 at 10:00 pm they send an e-mail to let me know that the flight from Budapest to Viena is canceled. I am glad that I decided to check my e-mail before I go to bad. So I try to call Austrian, but they work just from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm. I start to search all the info the site of Austrian, and find one phone number that seats be working 24 hours. So finally I got a person on the phone who was able to help me. ..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Seating like every other airline in economy. There was NO baggage charge for economy and the drink trolley offered wine and beer, at no cost, on our 1.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Great experience, friendly crew!"
Pros: "On time boarding in Vienna and lending in Chicago."
Cons: "Not enough food for a long flight (only one poor meal was served during the entire flight)."
Pros: "Flight Attendants super friendly as well as ground staff in Salzburg."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."
Pros: "Even though I was very disappointed at what the Austrian airline did to me, the staff and crew and captains where professional and the flight was comfortable especially on Lufthansa. However, I missed the experience of enjoying the flight with the group of people that I joined on the way to Vienna and to Egypt."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that they cancelled my Austrian flight to a completely different company (Lufthansa). I paid extra money when I reserved the tickets in the USA to make sure I am on the same plane as the other three families that i wanted to be with as a group. They had reserved their tickets and I got the flight numbers and when I reserved my booking I paid extra to be on the same airplane as the rest of the group. My plan worked going to Vienna and to Cairo (although one of the planes were delayed 3 hours which ruined our stay in Vienna) but on the way back from Cairo to LA, I couldn't be with the group because I left 2 hours early and arrived in LA 2 hours late. I pleaded that I came with a group but they said I have a different booking so they couldn't honor keeping me on the same plane as the group. I am very disappointed and will avoid my future travel with Austrian airline"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we weren't notified."
Cons: "- My flight was rescheduled twice. Very short connection time, they said that there are no other options but actually there were other options. - Bad web check-in service. There were errors/bugs in the check-in service."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled! ended up flying to Athens the next day"
Pros: "Very nice crew, great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2hours (but we did catch up 1 hour so good job!)"
Cons: "No entertainment - probably due to short flight time. On my flight from la to vienna the entertainment was remarkable."
Cons: "As I was flying from London Heathrow back to Vienna, I had a carry-on that was allowed on my flight with Austrian from Vienna to London. My carry-on weighed 8 kg, like is required by the rules. While boarding my flight, the woman at the counter told me my bag had to be checked because there were too many carry-ons on the flight. I asked her that I keep my bag because I had medication in there, and she didn't listen to me at all. She just kept repeating that i have to check my bag, and then took my bag from me and gave it to the baggage crew there. I didn't want to make a huge scene because the flight is only 2 hours and I hoped i Could deal without my medication during that time, but I found it incredibly, incredibly rude and awful to not listen to a passenger."
Cons: "Give me some knee room. I'm only 5 10 - What happens to the tall people?"
Cons: "Predictably, why I was expected to meet the tight schedule between planes squeezed by the 1st flight leaving one hour later than planned, my checked-in baggage apparently wasn't. So for me 35 minutes was more than enough to go through yet another passport checkpoint, security checkpoint, run like a headless chicken then travel by bus to the plane; for AU it wasn't enough to transfer my bag to the connecting flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was incredibly slow, which delayed our flight."
Pros: "Glad to have coffee and sweet treat. Attentive and pleasant crew."
Pros: "Good food and drinks,great movies"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom,needs upgrade too."
Cons: "small planes, no screens, no enertaminet. the flight was delayed in like two hors, some of crew members became too nevous."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Should have more movie choices"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very nice crew, nice airport (Vienna). Always enjoy the flights when I'm heading towards home...."
Cons: "We finally had to resort to twitter to do our check-in which was only for the second part of the journey."
Pros: "They were efficient. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "The plane seemed older. It was a bit noisy. No entertainment. It was however, just a short distance and served this purpose well."

Just average

They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.

Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."

The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers.

Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."

I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."
