Initially I had a short layover—booked through Lufthansa I was worried about. Then My first flight got delayed, and continued getting delayed, and I was sure I was going to miss the next flight. That got delayed too though, so while I still ended up with a short layover it was enough for me to make it before boarding began. Then my second flight also kept getting delayed while my third one did not. The transition between my second and third flight was supposed to be my longest and a breeze, but when it was all said and done I had right about an hour to make it. It was a bit more stressful than I would have liked.
Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "I really like the crew on Lufthansa"
Cons: "Our pre paid seats were lost in the "system" even though I had the receipt they couldn't do anything. and we were seated in a back row with offset tvs, the movie selection is lame and dated"
Pros: "Everything very excellent"
Pros: "Crew was nice, flight was ontime"
Cons: "While boarding and before starting the engines there was no AC. Temperature was unpleasantly hot"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "everything else food seats service ..."
Pros: "The wheel chair service at Munich airport was excellent. She received us at the door, helped us find a connection after we lost our flight and communicating every step and giving us First Class service on coach. Thank you!"
Cons: "The brownies for dessert were terrible. Maybe fruit next time?"
Cons: "Boarding from Nairobi was ridiculous. The plan was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, food was bad"
Pros: "Airbus seats, n/a considering short flight"
Cons: "Some staff ignored us in our isle"
Pros: "Food was bearable"
Cons: "Delayed, the gate was changed 3 times."
Pros: "Food was Good, flight was without much stress and a little faster to compensate for the delay."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no announcements, long wait in line for boarding, repeated delays. Not the first time - Every tome I use this flight it is delayed and without clear information to passengers how much delay is anticipated. Announcements, even if they come - come not loud, simultaneous with other announcements - so impossible to hear. Scheduled gate is moved every time too."
Pros: "The cheese sandwich was good."
Cons: "Flight left late. Airport employees weren't helpful. The plane was hot."
Pros: "There was no communication between aircrew and gate for transfers. There is a new additional check between gates and no passenger was informed. This security check was over an hour long. The flight was not held for me and other passengers and when we arrived at the gate they were oblivious of the fact that we had been held up in what seemed to be a Km long security line."
Pros: "Attitude of staff"
Cons: "Food and delay"
Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"
Pros: "Food, drinks, crew hel;pful"
Cons: "Boarding was not orderly, stupid system of delayed displaying of gate assignment"
Cons: "Boading priority was not possible, due to the massive amount of people crowding the entrance. Very hectic and uncoordinated boarding process. I always fly first row to be able to work with my laptop, however due to a last minute plane change the new A321 did not have a 1D or 1F, only 1A and 1C. I had booked 1D, but was moved back to 5D with absolutely no option to change back to the first row to finish my work. I had to sit sideways to be able to work, and it was extremely uncomfortable. I don't understand why they couldn't have moved me back to the first row and move the non-SEN/HON sleeping members back to 5D and 5F, or at least asked them if they would mind. The plane was massively late, and I missed my followup meetings at the airport."
Pros: "I loved everything about the Lufthansa Flight. Clean plane enough room. GREAT Service!!"
Cons: "No difference between Business class and main cabin."
Cons: "food seats were not equipped with personal TV screens"
Pros: "They made the experience enjoyable easy and I made me feel special"

Cons: "I am lactose intolerant and there were few non-dairy options"
Pros: "Great service, legroom economy, on time"
Pros: "I liked that the flight attendants were courteous and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system is a compkeyfailure and is unresponsive to touch screen. The entertainment feels like it was done to please everyone. In the process the selections are of limited interest. Movies are not interesting and often not available. If this entertainment were on the ground it would be a train wreck."
Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"
Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."
Cons: "Food was disappointing...especially 'pizza' at the end. Crew was very helpful to family with baby."
Pros: "Great service everyone was very accommodation. Enjoy the flight and the met some very interesting people. Althoght my flight to Kiev fro Frankfurt was delayed 20 minutes, and to take a bus to another plane, it wasn't that long of a wait."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Normal Flight, short, was coming from Munchen"
Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Pros: "Again lufthansa crew one of the best out there thank you"
Cons: "No entertainment but I understand why short flight"
Cons: "flight was delayed. personal works very slow"
Pros: "Arrived on time, crew was friendly, was pleasentelly surprised that they are serving food on such a short flights in Europe."
Cons: "Boarding was bad. Gates werechanget multiple times (morethan twice) had to walk back and force, back and force thtoughehole terminal B"
Pros: "GOOD food, service was fine. Seat had good room."
Cons: "My seat didn't stay back (would lock) and kept me from getting much sleep. But, ultimate reason for mediocre rating was the level of turbulence. very bad - maybe not airline's fault, but still it was unpleasant."
Pros: "Boarding was very fast since we were traveling with Little ones. Food was good. Movie selection was good too."
Cons: "Waiting for flight take off, seats in the economy class not comfortable"
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"
Pros: "Airplane crew was nice and I was surprised(in a good way) by them giving to passengers sandwiches as a snack."
Cons: "So I actually had a flight that departures at 9:50 AM and it was connection flight after I got to Frankfurt at 9:00, but I missed it cause other gates were too far and moreover Lufthansa staff were not so nice to help me out. Actually, I was running there and got to the gates at 9:40 AM but air hostess said that I've already missed it. They said that I had enough time and that's my fault - I even should be thankful that I don't pay for another flight that I am going to be flying in 7 hours. Bottom line: I got to Kiev at 9:20 PM and moreover, the flight landed 30 mins late. It never happened to me, despite I've been more than on 25 flights. I am shocked by employee's behavior and the situation in general. Would never recommend Lufthansa airline to anyone."
Pros: "Very good entertaining system plus good food . Crew members taking care about people all the time."
Pros: "Short flight so it was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "on purposely made passengers miss connecting flight and did not genuinely try to help. Everybody follows so called policy like a robot regardless the circumstance. An airline with no feeling and emotion. Arrogant and don't care about passengers."
Pros: "It departed and arrived on time. The boarding process was very efficient thanks to Frankfurt's automated ticked checking gates."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding, friendly and helpful. The entertainment options were great with lots of current movie and tv listings. the food was pretty good. We received two meals and frequent beverage service. The seats were pretty comfortable, though when the seat in front of you reclined the space was greatly reduced."
Cons: "We had to pay to get seat assignments. it wasn't cheap and then they changed the seats we'd chosen to seats at the very back of the plane. The boarding process is chaotic, at least compared to American practices."
Pros: "everything is good!!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Not much in the way of snacks"
Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"
Even though the flight got delayed for 10’ we made it on time
I flew business class. But nothing compare to business class. Lounge closed in Vienna. Not exist at all in Tel Aviv. Priority boarding not exist in Tel Aviv despite available business counter. Nobody in front of me was checked in to Business or with Senator status. No welcome drinks. All overall awful experience.

Pros: "The crew members were so sweet."
Cons: "Flight was late. I missed my connection."
Cons: "very rude and extremely racist group. I will not fly them again."
Pros: "Crew was positively and smiling."
Cons: "Flight was 44 min late. Could have been on time"
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: "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."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Pros: "good food, drinks, good entertainment options"
Pros: "Check in at gate easy and boarding on time. Equipment seemed modern and in good condition. No food or entertainment on short flight to rate."
Cons: "Boarding process was not easy to hear and it was unclear where the line for our gate ended and the line for the gate right next to ours began"
Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"
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."
Cons: "As a gluten free person dinner delicious but after 5-6 next hours for breakfast I got few small slices of melon... like really?? This will not feed anyone! For next time I know that I have to bring my own food.. so bad! While servis time we ordered whisky with cola and after one hour we went to ask for one more cause we wanted and CA told us they dont serve anymore whisky only wine or beer. Besides this things when I came to plane my sit and table tray was dirty so we had to put blanket over... for the first time I write bad feedback but I have to cause it was terrible.."
Pros: "Nice clean Airplane, good choice of entertainment. Food OK (except breakfast) but not great (coach class) Crew friendly, on time."
Cons: "The muffin for breakfast as the only choice at the end of the flight is a joke: superloaded with sugar, chewy, artificiall taste. Most of the passengers sent it back. This has not improved since my last flight with Austrian in March 2018. The one reponsible for ordering such junk should be punished by having to eat the muffin himself. Sorry!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly and afficient onboard service. Fast boarding. On time departure."
Cons: "Croatian Airline checkin service was good but was made to check in carry on. However, baggage clerk was extremely hostile and wanted to charge us for two bags for which we had prepaid. Would not accept our evidence of payment for the two bags. Finally accepted her mistake but Forced to pay 90€ For the extra bag. Ripoff!! Other airlines (Vueling, Air Europa) checked same bag as courtely, did not charge. First and last time flying Austrian."
Pros: "Love the A 380-800"
Cons: "Out luggage did not make it to Houston from Frankfurt. We were late from Vienna but Lufthansa held the plane and extra 30 minutes in Frankfurt so that the baggage could make it from the feeder flights and it still didn't. We were promissed out luggage on Sunday evening. No one called and as of Monday morning no news."
Cons: "Delayed longer than the flight time"

Cons: "While going to the gate G11 at Vienna airprt, i slipped infront of the gate in presence of 3 male austrian airways staff who were checking there. After i got up i requested if i could get some water and they said they cannot. Finally a co passenger gave me her bottle of water. I ended up actually breaking my leg"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lateness and virtually no food at lunchtime"
Pros: "I would suggest to make up some how for my lost as I had other problems derived from missing my United Airlines but so far every body has been very understanding. For example selling me a new ticket at a special price or with some benefit - I WILL NEED TO FLY TO VIENNA AND KIEV AGAIN WITHIN 6 MONTHS - otherwise; I doubt I would ever buy a Austrian plane ticket again. I AM FLYING ON POLISH AIRLINES RIGHT NOW OCT 25TH."
Cons: "When I try to make the change of itinerary on Austrian Airlines on the selling web page, they told me to contact the Austrian Airlines, so I did. The Austrian Airlines lady who told me that I would just lose my tickets and that I could not even pay a penalty to avoid such thing, was very VERY RUDE!! As the Austrian Airlines did not offer me an option but losing my plane ticket,"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort was meh."
Pros: "Emergency exit row leg room. Good stuff."

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."
Pros: "The female attendants were nice."
Cons: "The male attendants, who were on my side, were not very attentive. I had a small child with me and they didn't seem to realize the challenges associated with what I was doing. Also, my child's screen would not work most of the time, even though I told the attendants."

Lot didn't provide any drink or food, and also they didn't give us any information about our flight, they just ignored us. We were very frustrated, our kids were hungry and thirsty but nobody from LOT company didn't care about it. They even didn't say "sorry " . I will not recommend this airline to my friends or to somebody else, just be careful with this airline."

Pros: "Helpful Crew"

Half hour wait, and you could have left your carry on with somebody else, get cleared by machine, pick up your bag again and get on board."

Pros: "The flight attendants seemed nice and courteous."
Cons: "They didn't start boarding until 5 minutes before take off and this was just onto the bus that would take us to the airplane. There was no communication why they were running so far behind. Once we landed in Warsaw, we sat on the plane for around 20 minutes waiting for them to bring the bus to pick us up and remove our luggage from underneath. I had a connecting flight I would have missed if it wasn't delayed. They also had the door open while waiting and the heat and humidity was pretty stifling with everyone already standing up waiting to disembark."
Pros: "I liked that I was given an opportunity to change my flight to business class before leaving Poland but opted out in favor of economy that would get me home sooner."
Cons: "What I was transferred to was Lufthansa and their flight was late at arriving and taking off. This transfer changed my destination to Frankfurt. I was stuck in Frankfurt with no compensation.

When we flew with my little daughter - toddler to the destination the plane was late and as a result we were late to another plane, so they sent us to the same destination country but to the different place and then I had to find out were to go further while our luggage was lost (found in 3 days). When we flew back, the plane was late once again and I was told that we might will be left until next day morning, so lots of nervous and stress. The food provided was very poor as well - basically just small chocolate bar and water, tea or coffee, so if you are hungry it would not really help you."
Pros: "Friendly professional crew. Clean aircraft. Very good ticket price."
Cons: "Hard to check in online from hotel in Munich. Hard and confusing where and how to check in at Munich airport and very time consuming. Having to pay $20 per bag but not at the check in counter but at another counter and then at the gate counter being call up to get checked that we did pay the $20 for the bags. Made me feel 3rd class."
Cons: "Size for carry-on baggage is different than on Toronto-Warsaw flight."
Pros: "Customer service was good and flight arrived on time."
Cons: "When checking in we were told to stand in a long line to drop our bag after getting our boarding passes from a machine. After standing in line for 30 minutes the woman at the counter said we were in the wrong line and was extremely rude as if we were stupid for not being able to follow the Polish signage. We had simply stood in the line we were directed to. Counter clerks not very pleasant compared with other airlines!"
Cons: "Free drinks please"
Pros: "New dream liner from Boeing."
