Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"

Pros: "Entertainment, crew was very hard-working."

Pros: "The airplane and clean"
Cons: "The seats destination between them very small"
Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"
Pros: "Staff on the plane is fantastic."
Cons: "No option to pick a seat in economy class."
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"
Pros: "Too tired after almost 24 hours traveling. No complaints."
Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"
Pros: "Food and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"
Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew. Very helpful."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I wanted in stock"
Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "had a whole row to myself and the food was very good"
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"

Cons: "The flight attendant not wearing perfume. Food was very poor to say the least."
Pros: "The approach into Venice airport was to the NE so the flight path gave a perfect areal tour of venice out the right side of the plane."

Pros: "The food was amazing"

Pros: "Swiss quality, punctuality and reliability."
Cons: "No negatives."
Cons: "The screens would freeze for all the people around. The connecting flight had 50 minutes, however there was another security check and gate was quite far, everything had to be done in a hassle and we were nervous throughout regarding missing the flight."

Pros: "Nice cabin, clean . Friendly crew"

Pros: "Food and crew were great, very friendly and perfect with timing of serving meals"
Cons: "The boarding kind of scrambled. The head phone connection bad for my headphones, I had sound only in my left ear. The screen had very poor resolution but selection of movies was goood."

Pros: "Pilot's landing was top noch."
Cons: "During boarding there was a crowd with no possibility to maintain social distance. Crew should have given propper instructions to avoid that."
Pros: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Cons: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."
Cons: "Tv and food"
Pros: "My sleep"
Pros: "Both friendly and professional"
Cons: "All is perfect! They couldn’t be better"
Pros: "The Turkish crew is very attentive and nice."

Pros: "Entertainment and food are always reliably good on Turkish."
Cons: "Ground crew was very poor at communication, no one warned us we would need a visa; we spent hours and hours queuing for what could have been sorted out in advance. Communication was terrible. The flight was delayed due to Pakistan closing air space. Turkish rescheduled but no real help in Istanbul."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Pros: "Good food, excellent lounge in Istanbul and super comfy seats in the longer leg"
Cons: "Boarding crew did not have the required knowledge of visa process and made us wait 40 mins"

Pros: "Great crew, confortable seats, free complimentary internet service"
Cons: "Even though the same plane was used, the Cuban authorities asked passengers bound to Caracas to deboard the plane, pass to transit, to have us waiting an hour to re board.

Pros: "Slept in the flight for 5 hours and my toddler did too , was quiet in the cabin and this is the only good thing"
Cons: "Boarding they kept me and couple othee guys like seeiously 5 staff people at the gate doing nothing and you ask anyone please help i want to tag my stroller so i can board ans go on boarding line, no response only one peeson will work. the rest of the four are completely useless, i eventually told my wife to board with our daughter so they have the time to sit and prepare food etc and pull things they will need durimg flight Andi waited on this last staff person at the gate until she gave me the tag to the stroller and boarded later First meal they said either fish or beaf meat balls, i like both and no problem, but the crew said no fish anymore so you you will take beaf, OK Luckily neither my wife or daughter ate it Because after I ate it, 3-4 hrs later, I had the worst stomach pain ever and was in pain the rest of the flight and the remaining of the day after we landed FYI I ate just crackers and like all bread sandwiches all morning and was completely fine- just the beaf meat balls either not cocked or remains of non good beaf and other things- horrible food"

Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."

Cons: "The head phones are terrible."
Pros: "On time. Really fast the check in. Nice crew. Confortable."
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."
Cons: "As expected, the plane and seats were okay (borderline mediocre). The food wasn't enough and the choices (rather the lack of) were poor. The seats could be better and not particularly comfortable for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Professional nice food"
Pros: "Istanbul Airport has good facilities and F&B options"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Bangkok was delayed for 3.5 hours with no apology and no compensatory measures such as drinks and food or lounge access Power outlets in Istanbul airport are all round plug European with no USB terminals for phone recharging"
Pros: "Kids full of praise for on board entertainment. Efficient and helpful staff. Nice food. Provided me with a veggie meal despite my not ordering one beforehand."
Cons: "A little pricey."
Pros: "I liked everything, from the inflight catering, check in, etc! I had to cut short my trip to Istanbul due to a family issue- they couldn’t do enough to facilitate a flight home at short notice at a minimum cost and most importantly expedited my return with the minimum of hassle- thank you Turkish!"
Cons: "No negative points to make."
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."
Cons: "Small seats in the economy class"
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."
Cons: "The boarding was a little more chaotic, but the host airport has a major influence on that process."
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Pros: "Great entertainment system (though nothing new since my last flight 2 weeks ago)."
Cons: "As all airplanes, seats are somewhat cramped, and the food, while good enough, is pretty much the same it is on every Turkish Airlines flight. Some more variety might be nice."
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Cons: "There was loud, annoying static over the intercom off and on."
Cons: "No WiFi despite paying. No Kosher food despite ordering."
Pros: "Nice crew short flight."
Cons: "Not much flight was too short to say"
Pros: "The take off and landing was peaceful and on time"
Cons: "I didn’t like changing boarding gate three times. The crew member was poor overall including the one providing service I must say."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"
Pros: "Nothing much to say. The crew was polite, kind and professional."
Pros: "Respect and politeness of the staff"
Cons: "Wi-Fi is not available on all flights also is easy to download the fllynet"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."
Pros: "Crew was great, plane was nice"
Cons: "delayed again, almost missed connection"
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Cons: "No TV in the chair ,even no group TV The the crew member in the business class lady was too aggressive in her way as if we are working for her , too tide chairs"
Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient. Moved very well around sleeping passengers sprawled feet. The shortcomings of the flight had to do with being in a tail section of an economy class in a packed transoceanic flight."
Cons: "At the beginning of the long flight the cabin was chilled, which made me happy I had my hooded sweatshirt with me, but at the end it was hot and stuffy. There was no air regulation available from the seat, only light."
Pros: "Great crew. Great seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by half an hour. Mainly due to limited carryon space. During check in we offered to check in carry on luggage, but were told it would be an additional cost! If they would have checked it in that would have saved 15 minutes easily"
Pros: "Everything Else"
Cons: "Too much cabin baggage."
Cons: "Missed connection flight in Chicago due to a technical delay in Munich, the tank vehicle had a defect and the ground power in Chicago went out. It is now the 4 th time that we got stranded in Chicago. So Condor, Lufthansa and Chicago are getting on our shitlist......"
Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Both flights late. Food was worthy rather than tasty. Seats small. Too much plastic - why not use non plastic cups. Sexist safety card."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and kind. Entertainment had variety."
Cons: "Flight ran out of chicken meals fast, forcing the rest of the plane to have vegetarian instead. I was sat in 41G. Awkward seating arrangement. Worst seat ever! Super cramp, making a 9hr flight very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Pros: "We got two drinks, I had an empty seat next to me which made things more comfortable"
Cons: "Add an entertainment system, better food, there shouldn’t be a long wait to get a drink after your meal and maybe serve water with the meal. There wasn’t too many shops in the airport"
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seating was comfortable as we had good leg room as we booked on a premium economy class."
Cons: "We requested for a chicken meal at dinner time but instead my husband and I was served the beef meal. I was very disappointed as firstly the way the beef was cooked tasted horrid. Secondly a mix up at the catering dept like labelling beef meal as chicken should never happen!"
Pros: "entertainment was good"
Cons: "the flight attendants were mostly absent. The flight attendants on the other side of the aisle were much more attentive and nice"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Everything else was average."
Cons: "With the exception of one Asian cabin crew, others were cold. Food has worsened on Lufthansa. Portion and quality are not as good as 1 year ago. I find the seat average in comfort for premium economy. If only the seat would move forward, I keep sliding off it. Cathay Pacific has a much better seat."
Pros: "Nothing to say anything flight is cancelled two time. Fed up of Lufthansa service."
Cons: "Change flight rules and regulations. Shouldn't cancel any flight even one passenger booked air ticket. Lufthansa is very worst service."
Cons: "It was not the same time because one hour and a half delays"
Cons: "It was Air Canada. Terrible service. Staff needs education on where to take travelers thru the immigration locations. Wasted time going to different locations and time is an essentence! Too many changes of staff from one location to another when it came with wheelchair assistance. One staff was on her personal phone!!! Had 3 different changes of hands then still did not get us to the right terminal, had to run to make the flight! Is that how you treat a 86 years old traveler?"
Pros: "Staff were ok, did all they could"
Cons: "Not enough information especially for people with connecting flights"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Weird plane noises (typical of older Airbus planes)"
Cons: "Few toilets for two sections and seats too close, if it is not uptight the seat in front of you. You can not enjoy and watch movies."
Pros: "Service was excellent, food was good, everyone was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Everything was OK."
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Short flight, snacks, timely take off and landing."
Pros: "Great film choices, short flight time - no delays. The flight was relatively full but I experienced no discomfort and the food was good. I think they ran out of one option but this didn't bother me as it wasn't my choice."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Aircraft, cleanliness, crew, food"
Pros: "Plane and service was excellent"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Excellent take off and landing. Liked the extra legroom in coach for a bit more $$. Super friendly & professional crew. PA system was very difficult to understand."
Cons: "the food was a bit bland. Selection of movies very limited"
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."
Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "Stuttgart to Frankfurt was good.. ."
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"
Pros: "Welcoming from the crew"
Cons: "Take off was very scared"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Pros: "Entertainment is great. Great selection of shows and music"
Cons: "The Frankfurt airport is an embarrassment to Germany. Taking buses to your plane, going up and down stairs to depart or board a plane is archaic. Therefore most Lufthansa flights in and out of this main hub are delayed. There should be some rule that meals will not be served to customers who have their seat reclined. The poor person behind them has no comfortable way to eat."
Cons: "Delayed by two hours. Made me miss my connection. Also it is far too cramped for anyone who is tall. We need more leg room"
Pros: "Wi-Fi and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" cramped in economy"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Cons: "Boarding tool a long time and late take off"
Cons: "Poor selection of european films! There is a far bigger choice in e.g. Singapore airlines or Cathay Pacific. Rest was fine."
Cons: "Austrian could learn from the likes of singapore airlines and cathay pacific: the choice of movies was pretty limited (1 italian, 1 french, 1 spanish) and the games were simply boring. The food was ok, breakfast pretty terrible (breed but no butter, reconstructiesergramingtheworstieverate.Stodwoowfs"
Pros: "I do like the clean aircraft, and pretty precise service. Also it was on time , for comfort the pillow and the blanket was nice . Some airlines doesn’t give anything anymore! Which is awful."
Cons: "Just a small thing the lady who was serving and picking up the used cups said I have to finish the juice and after she can take it away. But I couldn’t finish because it was too sweet and I didn’t like the juice. So I had to get up and bring the cup to the back. That wasn’t nice. Also they at but flexible about giving choices. Only one kind of sandwich they had but I think there was one other kid also."
Pros: "They have Economy class seats on the business class. Uncomfortable."
Pros: "The cleanest of the airport and the airplane"
Cons: "The 15 hours layover"
Pros: "On time & clean"
Cons: "Can’t really say"
Pros: "Good flight , bad flight delay and luggage."
Cons: "To be on time"
Cons: "1:20 min delay for a 35 min flight (less then 200km on the road). It is even worse if it is during the night (aircraft landed at 0:40 instead of 23:20"
Pros: "Noting outstanding."
Cons: "Seat comfort."
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom in my Premium Economy seat (10C). Seat itself just OK, the high price isn't justified. This flight is usually about one hour late and it was."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and particularly one of the girls was always giving her best"
Pros: "Very efficient and fuss free. Just what I was looking for from a short haul flight!"
Cons: "The snacks are super small, which isn’t unexpected when the flight time is so short."
Pros: "Food, in particular the vienna coffee choices were imprewsive."
Cons: "Flight was not on time so I didn’t make the rest of the flights. And tbd new airline lost my luggage."
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: "thebflight wqs smooth and on time"
Cons: "snack they gave something sweet at 07:00 AM"
Pros: "Great to be able to check in bags at the CAT railway station in the morning. Cabin crew were excellent- very friendly and helpful and did two drinks services. Austrian’s cabin crew sets them apart on European routes."
Pros: "Very comfortable journey, leaving on time, arriving on time"
Pros: "Flight was relatively empty today, therefore boarding was smooth and easy. I had a row to myself.. Smoothest landing ever... just a lucky day"
Pros: "Excellent crew, delicious Austrian wine, only a short flight so only some nibbles to eat which was fine."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best, quite hard on the middle back."
Pros: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Not loosing my suitcase!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Despite booking business class flights 3 months before departure date because we had to attend a very important wedding. Swiss Airlines overbooked the flight but didn’t warn us in advance. This meant my husband was forced to pay over 8 thousand Euros to charter a small private je"
Cons: "So That we could attend the wedding early the next morning in Oldenburg. They then had the audacity to void our return flights. Luckily I spoke with a lovely lady at Lufthansa, explained the situation and she re-instated return flights for an admin fee. Will never ever use Swiss Airlines again."
Cons: "The crew dropped the bottle to the head of my son."
Cons: "Seat !!"
Cons: "One hour late for take off..."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Couldn’t get on the flight due to two cancellations of prior connecting flights. Utterly, totally unacceptable - and no explanation of why."
Pros: "Nothing. See below."
Cons: "Original flight cancelled so rebooked ojba floght five hours later - then with one hour to go until that second flight, that was cancelled as well. Totally unhelpful ground staff, who were oblivious to the fact that I had a work commitment the next day so couldn’t overnight in some random hotel at an airport to suit Austrian’s policies. Eventually routed via Lisbon which meant literally flying all night to arrive at 0600. Lufthansa and Austrian have some serious faults to correct."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
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: "I liked the abundant choices for entertainment and the comfortable seating."
Cons: "Some members of the crew weren’t so pleasant. One didn’t speak to me while I was helping my child in the aisle, but rather rudely pushed her out of the way instead of saying excuse me or waiting a moment for her to sit back down into her seat."
Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
Pros: "Crew was nice enough, entertainment was ok. Food was ok. The plane was old and a little dirty."
Cons: "Boarding was incredibly chaotic, seats were old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great service on board the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great. Lovely and efficient crew. Sound not good on films but we were in economy so maybe just the disposable earbuds. A small point and didn’t spoil an otherwise great service."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Red uniforms are ok but red tights awful"
Pros: "The flight attendants worked very hard Patient and courteous."
Cons: "Drinks are varied Food needs improvement The bread is low The vegetarian meal is poor"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough."
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Delayed at boarding Delayed inside plane No entertainment No room for my long legs - no option"
Pros: "Staff were always courteous."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight. Nice refreshments"
Cons: "arogant staff, flight canceled, great difficulties to claim my money back"
Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"
Cons: "The food was not edible"
Pros: "Really impressed with the Austrian air staff representatives. Especially the folks at the ticket/checkin counter"
Cons: "That I did not fly this airlines before. They will be first on my list from now on."
Cons: "The airplane came late, delaying our trip. Despite that, the luggage would not come, and the claims office was ridiculous (despite of the destination being within 1 hour of drive from the airport, it took us 24 hours of our short vacation trip to deal with luggage). It seems that LH has these problems regularly, and they don't seem to care; I guess we'll have to try someone else to avoid suffering the same problem every time. The employees already knew the luggages are in a mess, and so were the claims. When taking LH, we have to accommodate luggage delay into our planning."
Pros: "Great flight. Was long but made nice by staff/crew and entertainment options."
Pros: "smooth flight, friendly crew"
