You closed the gates a half hour early and denied boarding to more than 50 people. The only reason we were there with only a half hour to spare was that the connecting flight we were in, also operated by you, was an hour and a half late. We then waited for four hours at the service desk. All agents were completely unsympathetic and most returning flights have been over booked. We've been at the airport 24 hours already and aren't sure if we can make it home on the flight we have been rebooked on. This is the WORST experience I have ever had traveling.
Great travel experience On time Excellent crew Good food Good movies selection Smooth flight

Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on plane on ground for 4 hours then missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating. Chocolate always appreciated!"

Cons: "horrible dry croissant for breakfast"
Pros: "The crew was quite pleasant and friendly - very accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated, the food was only passable. The chocolate was nice"

Cons: "I am still in Budapest and was not able to fly back on my Hungarian passport."
Pros: "check in & boarding were ok"
Cons: "very uncomfortable chairs worset food crew were very unfriendly the plan was full with the smell of vomiting"
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."
Pros: "Economy class had a bit wider seats. Included dinner, beverages, and breakfast plus snacks . Happy with Swiss Air."
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew"
Cons: "Plane missed connection in Zurich. Transferred next day to United who charged us another $120 for extra baggage, which we already paid at Swiss. We would like reimbursement. Gyula E Balogh"
Pros: "Always on time and professional crew!"
Pros: "service, food and chocolate"

Pros: "The new plane with private screens"
Pros: "Overall excellent. Full professional and caring staff and company."
Pros: "The flight attendants qere very nice and friendly. Spoke great English. They came by often with drinks and snacks. All the food was actually good! The seats were fairly comfy and there was actually room! Even when the person in front of me leaned back, my legs still didn't touch the back of the seat (I'm 5-10 with long legs). Very happy with swiss!"

Pros: "Excellent, super-friendly crew, excellent meal"

Cons: "No complaints it was excellent"
Pros: "Polite cree"
Cons: "Crowded plane, long boarding and waiting to be seated"
Pros: "I am very satisfied and I will recommended it to my friendships"
Pros: "The flight attendant told me I had to keep my seat upright throughout dinner so the person behind me could eat. I wanted to sleep and couldn't do so without reclining. The seats are tight but I was in the economy plus section so I thought she should have let me recline instead of physically moving my seat upright. And for someone who cared so much about the seat at dinner no one cared about me the rest of the flight. I slept through breakfast and no one left me a tray even. Plus, I had my seat back the rest of the flight including landing which I didn't realize. Isn't it their job to ensure our seats are in upright positions in case we forget or don't realize? Just a very blasé crew."
Cons: "See above regarding the crew. It's not that big of a deal but I really thought the crew was poor. Flight was short and easy enough though."
Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive, food delicious, movie selection great also."
Cons: "I flew from Miami to Zurich, Zurich to France, France to Zurich, and Zurich to Miami within the span of a week and they were all at least 30 minutes late. BUT flight attendants came by with water while we were seated and offered chocolate, which I really liked. It wasn't the worst thing for me, but I can see how it's annoying."
Pros: "I love everything. The aircraft was spacious and clean. The crew excellent and the food very good."
Cons: "I wouldn't say didn't like something but we had to wait 40 min over the time we were suppose to take off. And this is notbody s fault but it was ind of long..."
Cons: "The flight was late and I almost lost my connecting flight."
Cons: "We did not receive the baby pram after landing. Needed to pick it up at the baggage claim."
Cons: "At the Budapest airport the attendants were not willing to accommodate to check in my second luggage without a fee, despite the fact that I have a Miles & More card. On the way from NY to Budapest I checked in two luggages prior to arriving to the airport with out any fee. I would like Swiss air to issue a refund. I have my receipt for the excess luggage fee. Thank you, Eva Baud"
Pros: "smooth flight, comfy seats"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Seating is too tight and uncomfortable and I'm only 5'6"!"
Cons: "flight was delayed half and hour and i missed my connecting w"
Pros: "The ground and aircraft staff are very professional, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The aircraft was old, with subpar AC. We would either get freezing or hot and stuffy air. The seats were quite uncomfortable, worse than on recent trips with other airlines (Air Canada, United, Air France). Neither of our entertainment systems worked, despite the best efforts from the crew to reset them. Finally, the food was very disappointing for a European airline."
Pros: "We liked the crew, and the service and the food. We liked the screens and the choice of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were a bit close, but not terrible. The seats themselves were comfortable."
Cons: "our flight attendant was impatient and bossy two days after the flight my husband had to be taken to the emergency room - diagnosed with pulmonary embolism SWISS MUST DO A WAY BETTER JOB CALLING ATTENTION TO REGULAR EXERCISE ON THE PLANE!!"
Pros: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"
Pros: "You upgraded me unexpectedly to business class and it was so nice to have some luck and luxury after 6+ weeks of solo backpacking. It was such a lovely experience and I slept like a baby. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."
Cons: "My flight was last minute canceled and then one of my replacement flights was canceled"
Pros: "Staff were courteous and there was abundant food and beverage service."
Cons: "No child activities were distributed by the crew (like they did for our return flight)."
Pros: "Great cabin crew, decent food in coach, great entertainment system with many movie choices."
Cons: "Swissair charges extra to reserve a standard, not premium seat in coach. The practice should be disclosed at the time the ticket is purchased, to make comparison shopping easier. Otherwise, it constitutes a hidden fee, and that's what the customer remembers."
Pros: "Great crew on this UA flight. Watched three recent (last Fall) movies)"
Early arrival. NIce plane. Quick trip.
No wifi and tv didnt work so couldnt watch movies
Really accommodating staff, and on flight amenities. I would fly with Delta again.

Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "My seat didn’t have a window. The woman who booked it told me there was limited recline, THERE WAS NO RECLINE, and she left out there is no window even though she asked me if I wanted window or isle and I chose window. I felt like I was in a closet. Landing was incredibly harsh."
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Cons: "Nothing my timing was a bit off it all worked out well"

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work well. Still great flight."

Cons: "CheezIts were too salty. We had to sit on NO tarmac for over 10 minutes because a plane was stuck at our gate...several other gates empty - what's up?"
Pros: "Everything except lack of internet connection AFTER paying $19.95"
Cons: "Not getting internet after paying $19.95"
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi cut out a bit"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Cons: "I was flying from CDG to LGD and my bag was lost, yet the baggage claim system showed it arrived...... Thankful I packed some essentials in my carry on. The bigger issue will be dealing with my medical insurance company to get medications replaced that were in the checked bag."
Pros: "The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time."
Cons: "Virtually no food options."

Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Pros: "Pilots skill - it was raining hard when we landed"
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Pros: "I fist and most importantly, I liked the price of the flight. The airports were very helpful with guiding and helping speed up the checkin, boarding, and safe travel through my only stop in Mexico City."
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Cons: "no access to sky club"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "This flight was cramped. Not enough stretching room. Hard seats"
Cons: "Know that if you buy an E ticket they won't assign you seats until you arrive at the departure gate."
Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"
Cons: "Two out of three flights were delayed, customers service of the flight operated by Delta airlines is a nightmare and on top of it 2hours and 40min delayed. No drinks, no snacks, nothing."
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We arrived at the gate early only to find out that they had changed our flight without telling us so we were almost an hour extra wait before leaving Vegas. Then that flight was delayed by about 30 minutes with no warning, just late!"
Pros: "Nothing. The flight was delayed and I missed my connection"
Cons: "My flight leaving on time"
Pros: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Cons: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Pros: "Easy boarding and nice crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour."
Cons: "Lufthansa in Frankfurt is a nightmare. Gates are very far apart and Lufthansa scheduled layovers are very short. We were running close to 2 km from one end of the airport to other with little kids barely making our flights. Boarding was on tarmac even for 747, once in rain once in 40C degrees."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Check-in procedure. Plane was delayed a bit."
Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"
Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "I arranged assistance but nobody showed up."
Cons: "Requested assistance in Budapest for my 84 yr old mother that walks with a cane for the Frankfurt airport and Baltimore. No one showed up. Lots of walking at Frankfurt and having to board out on runway up all the steps was not easy."
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food was pretty good,"
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude to me"
Pros: "Exellent and smooth flight, thank you."
Pros: "Schedule was followed."
Cons: "At Budapest Airport only one check-in desk, #1 was shown on the big board for this flight and the airline Lufthansa was only shown above the check-in desk #1, which was dedicated for First/Business and M&M Gold status travellers only. Many economy class passengers queued there and at the end they were all redirected to check-in desk #3, as that was designated for Economy class passengers (however not any Lufthansa sign was shown above. When I mentioned to the ground crew (Celebi) that they should improve signs and not mishandle travellers, the person in charge (Nikolett Magyar) said to me arrogantly that they are right, and nothing they would do to improve the signs and passengers' information. This is far what I expect from LH representative, even if subcontracted and not an employee. That behaviour made my journey sour as travelling - especially with not a budget airline - is not just getting from A to B, but an experience which is worth to remember for good reasons, but not certainly for bad ones."
Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "Not enough space between the seats and the seats are very tough. So hard you can’t get comfortable"
Pros: "The flight had plenty of leg room and a snack with drink was served free which was a nice touch."
Cons: "Very cramped seating on first part of journey from Budapest to Munich"
Pros: "Food, drinks, crew hel;pful"
Cons: "Boarding was not orderly, stupid system of delayed displaying of gate assignment"
Pros: "Crew was super nice, service great and plane comfort appropriate for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Overhead compartments very narrow and could not fit small carryons."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about my flight"
Pros: "Agents in the airport helped us avoid long passport lines in order to board connecting flight by putting us forward to front of lines. Otherwise we would have missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Staff were so friendly! The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Gate change made with no PA announcement; we’ll, if you must, ok. But beginning boarding without telling anyone at all, making no announcements, not even in Hungarian, seems weird."
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Too many stairs, far away from the connection flight."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, friendly, and attentive, especially paying attention to my kids. The pilot and his crew did a great job during the flight as well. Thank them all for a pleasant and safe flight!"
Cons: "The only concern I have is regarding the diet. During the shorter flight, from Budapest to Frankfurt, the stewardess informed me that she couldn't get me gluten-free meal/snack. I understand that catering to special diet needs is not easy but following a gluten-free diet is not my choice, it is something I need to deal and live with on a daily basis. I felt disappointed since I had a long trip ahead of me, and I know that I, just like all the other passengers, had paid for the flight that should include the meal as well. Thank you for reading my concern and trying to see it from me, the passenger's point of view."
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by well-over an hour, having me arrive an hour late for my connecting flight home. There were no efforts to assist me in locating my connecting flight, to set up any accommodations while at the connecting flight's airport for the additional 4 hours of waiting time, no apologies for making me late for wedding rehearsals (I'm the officiant!). I had to actively seek out the ticket counter for another airline, through which my connecting flight was re-routed."
Pros: "Comfortable and big leg room"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "They switched me to a different flight saying I won't make my connection due to high traffic at the BUD airport and they never told me that instead of arriving to JFK, they are flying to Newark airport. Having not known this at all, I had no ride home, super inconvenienced and I was 2 hours plus away from my home in Jersey. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Service was excellent. ."
Pros: "Pretty much a standard commuter flight."
Pros: "Nothing. Never was able to get on the flight"
Cons: "First leg of our flight was delayed, second flight departed before we landed."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Marginal legroom"
Pros: "Made our connection, plenty of room on plane."
Cons: "Plane was late out of Budapest. Lounge at Budapest opened very late. No entertainment options."
Pros: "My flight was cancelled, and I could not get rebooked for 2 extra days. I have not returned home yet. No experience on this flight"
Pros: "The food was ok"
Cons: "There was no way to check seats or gates ahead of time."
Pros: "Superb service thru Lufthansa"
Cons: "Long wait, but it was cheap so it ofset it"
Pros: "I like the food when we fly in eaurope only"
Cons: "Took too long, unnecessary waiting, missed connecting flight"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Cons: "We couldnt fly because our name was in different order and they didnt want to change the order of our names."
Pros: "Lufthansa has us on a short connection in Munich. But instead of bumping us like Air Canada, which does not care about customers, Lufthansa got a little van for our family of 5, took us through expedited passport control and helped us reach our flight. They have done a superb job and it is great to see an airline that has a very capable ground crew as well as air crew. Lufthansa made us feel like they cared about us and trust me traveling with three kids under 6 we very much appreciated it and they will have our return business!!"
Cons: "Crew Service, food,"
Cons: "The Budapest Airport was not very organized for check-in."
Pros: "...and not for the first time.. And won't be the last.."
Cons: "Wifi onboard wasn't working.."
Pros: "A little unhappy looking stewardesses but politely professional."
Cons: "The seats are more and more uncomfortable."
I had a small back pack and a small suitcase. The boarding staff were extremely rude and wouldn’t let me take both on board. Only one small bag on board even though there was tons of space and I paid for premium seat. Also—they want you to wear their mask—even though I had n95. Will definitely avoid this airline in the future
Cons: "Cannot ask for more"
Pros: "fast and friendly checkin, fast boarding, easy transmit"
Pros: "yes, seat is always ok , I'm not overweight"
Cons: "basically, nothing, just keep smiling"
Cons: "Flights were late for more than 20 min. in both directions. Almost missed connecting flights in both directions. Had to pay for the luggage at the airport (luggage was not included in my ticket). Flight to my final destination was cancelled (first it was delayed, but I did not know that untill I got to the gate) I was diverted to other country (by other company), had to pay for hotel and taxi, missed almost two days of my vacation. On my flight back home, they have lost my luggage... hope they will find it. Now I am trying to get refund for cancelled flight, hotel, taxi, food... I will never fly with this company by my own choice any more!!!"
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."
Cons: "Huge delay... :("
Pros: "Rude inconsiderate staff. Terrible plane"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "No expectations as the flight was less than an hour."
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: "Liked all except the food"
Cons: "Did not like the food. I specifically selected vegeterian meal however was served vegan meal which I did not enjoy"
Cons: "Booked a ticket with luggage and got email saying I am at economy class. When got to check in told me I have economy light and I had to pay again for luggage. Dissaster. Contacted priceline- did not care."
Pros: "The flight was short: 4 hours. It was in time, etc. Certainly no entertainment."
Cons: "After the breakfast (rather poor) no drink was suggested. There was a cup for tee or coffee. Empty one. After the breakfast they just took it away with other dirty dishes. It happened to all passengers in my neighborhood."
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: "The economy seats had as much leg room as the Premium Economy seats on Luthansa, so the comfort over a long flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "The charge for checking a 2nd bag was $100 which I thought was much too high. Food was average and not enough given that we were on the plane for over 10 hours."
Pros: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Cons: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"
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: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ended up on Swiss Air. Only good thing about Austrian was they booked us on other flights at the check in desk."
Cons: "Our flights there were postponed causing us to miss out connecting flights, we rescheduled with a different airline. The same thing happened coming home. Austrian was a complete disappointment going there and back."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at the time we were suppose to board. We had to find another flight via Istanbul and got to our destination 6 hours late. Won't use Kayak again."
Pros: "The crew was extremely professional. Smiling and confident in their jobs. (The complimentary wine didn’t hurt either!)"
Pros: "The flight was nowhere near full, which was terrific. The crew were excellent, polite and attentive. Everything was on time."
Cons: "I don't remember anything about the food."
Pros: "I loved the music while boarding the plane. All staff members were very nice."
Pros: "Would have loved shorter transit time through Vienna, or Amman-Frankfurt-DTW (both ways)"
Cons: "Transit time through Vienna was particularly frustrating."
Pros: "Well, at least they didn't overbook it like the horror the connector to LAX was"
Cons: "Waited longer to start boarding the plane than the flight took. There are 2 gates in Lugano "airport" and no plane or flight at the other gate. Shouldn't be this difficult. The inflight crew was nice and attentive for the little time we saw them but the ground crew never ev n bothered to make an announcement. Just had us sitting there like a heard of cattle."
Cons: "Boarding in Vienna was completely unorganized. Received zero instruction from crew on new boarding information."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. We took off a bit late, but landed on time. Staff was responsive."
Cons: "Mediocre breakfast. Entertainment wasn't great."
Cons: "The flight from Budapest to Vienna was delayed so we missed our connection to Tel Aviv. The behavior of the ground staff who were supposed to assist us was outrageous. They behaved like a low cost company with one answer to any request, and this is the word "NO". It does not seem logical that we ever go with Austrian again. We do deserve a compensation for the delay and the behavior."
Pros: "Ok flight' late leaving from Vienna because pulling luggage when passengers missing,."
Pros: "The venue was overall ok"
Pros: "They had a yummy snack. And fresh veggies. With great coffee. And the host told us abou the history of a Vienna dessert."
Cons: "Flight from Budapest to Vienna was too hot and the AC was not working properly."
Pros: "I like that flight boarding was quick and in time.it was a short flight My name is Hispary."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing, gate was changed at the last minute without the passengers being warned"
Pros: "Catering and service was superb. While linen. Course by course on China, no tray service. The food was exquisite. The wine was acceptable, mid range, with very generous pours in Riedel glassware and always the offer made of would I like anything more? The seperate coffee menu has to be experienced to be believed, basically, it's an authentic Vienna see cafe experience at 30,000 ft."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was fiddly and the offerings meagre compared to the vast libraries found on other carriers, but it was sufficient. More a quibble than a gripe from me. The noise cancelling headsets were good quality noise cancelling, and comfortable. I can't wear some other airlines headsets at all and use my ear pods with an airline adapter jack."
Pros: "bording, take off, landing were on time excellent service on board crew was professional, present, smiling, creating feeling of comfort would definitely fly again with Austrian and recommend the airline to my friends and family"
Cons: "On my way to Bulgaria, I flew to Varna and would have liked to have a return flight from Varna, that makes the connection for Chicago"
Cons: "At 11h30 of 14/9 we (HOANG MINH CHAU and NGUYEN SI THANH) were standing at the ticket counter in Vienna and we could not check in due to no payment yet for the ticket and so the reservation has been cancelled. Due to this reason we had have to buy new tickets at the airport ticketing counter. So please sort out your problem with the airline and get back to me. From my bank the payment has been done yet to you. We had have double pay for one trip."
Cons: "Flight cancelled morning of the flight and our direct flight on Austrian Air turned into a flight on Lufthansa with a layover in Munich. Not pleased with their handling of the situation and their very blasé customer service"
Pros: "The coffee was excellent. It was like something from a fancy coffee shop, not a plane"
Cons: "Chicken w mashed potatoes plus potato salad? Too much potato in the dinner meal"
Pros: "I loved absolutely everything..the service and food were amazing. I will recommend this airline to everyone I know..and definitely will use again. Thank you! You made 9 hours very bearable."
Cons: "Can't answer this question because everything was fantastic."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The boarding in Budapest was not efficient. The gate was not announced until it was almost time to board. Hurry-up for me who arrived at the airport in plenty of time to avoid rushing. But I indeed had to rush because of the late gate posting."
Pros: "best blanket any business class."
Pros: "Really enjoyed the quick and pleasant service from the crew."
Cons: "This was actually one of the better flights I have been on."
Pros: "Crew is good as always."
Cons: "Uncertinty at boarding.Changing the time of take off several times and very slow boarding.Rough landing."
Pros: "Not at all a comfortable experience, but I suppose it served its purpose."
Cons: "Seats in economy class are way too crowded, plane was too warm and air was stale (and had an odd odor). Choices of dinner selections ran out quickly, and serving any type of curry (the only option left) on an 8 hour flight is a very questionable choice.... Staff gave some people the full can of drinks, while others only a half glass. Also, even though there was not much turbulence throughout the flight, the plane was still VERY shaky for the majority of the time in the air. Not very comforting for those who are not frequent flyers. In the future, I plan to stick with British Airlines."
Cons: "Less than 24 hours notice."
Pros: "The crew was the only good thing about this flight/airline."
Cons: "I was very disappointed with Austrian airlines. I was not able to pick my own seat even after I checked in and the actual seats on the plane were extremely small and uncomfortable. This made it impossible for me to enjoy mi flight. A 5'6' person should not have any issues but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. The seat was very narrow - it felt cramped and as if they turned a space designed for 2-4-2 into a 3-4-3. When I called the customer service before the flight to get a seat next to my husband who had a separate reservation, it took about 4 calls before anyone even mentioned that out reservations could be linked together. will not fly Austrian airlines again."
Delay and change of terminal last minute

Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. 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. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Staff, service"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
