My dream is to have little bit more comfortable seating. Seats are too hard. My travel involved three flights so I could definitely feel it. Food on the plane is a another one. On the flight from Toronto to Vienna the potato salad could be completely skipped (not so good). Instead I would add some fruit or other salad. Brownie in a plastic wrapping was not so easy to open.,There were lots of seniors and I noticed that they struggle little bit. Otherwise crew was friendly. Thanks so much for all the hard work!
This crew could have made an effort to deliver the passengers to the Vienna on time or to delay departures of the plains that the passengers were connecting to. There is no excuse for what they did to us.
Cons: "The fees for the sporting bag was out of control expensive"
Cons: "Flight delayed for one hour which caused us to miss our train. We had the longest check-in queue in the world although we have already checked in online and had our boarding passes in advance. Snack on board was a poor piece of biscuits"
Pros: "Friendly crew and ground crew worked VERY quickly and efficiently to deal with a broken plane and switch us all rather seamlessly to a replacement plane. Impressive."
Cons: "I was switched seats against my will on board! Although i reserved the seat ahead of time when i got in i was pretty much forced to sit somewhere else. The staff handled the sitution in a very poor manner!"
Pros: "On time, nice breakfast"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, same as everyone"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on the first day. I had to call to find out that I was rebooked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "Check in at gate easy and boarding on time. Equipment seemed modern and in good condition."
Cons: "Seats seemed smaller and more narrow than usual. Food in economy terrible. Entertainment program available but crew did not offer earphones needed to use programs."
Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
Pros: "Flight was in schedule, friendly staff"
Pros: "Fast, organized boarding, on time departure. Crew was courteous. Good food for airline food. I have only had positive experiences with this airline."
Pros: "Great staff, good meals, snacks, and drinks thru the entire flight. Good movie selections."
Cons: "Caótica boarding Uncomfortable seats did not recline"
Pros: "I don’t like to use your site again Wanted change date to 5 June When I saw no reply I bought a new ticket from Opodo"
Cons: "You are bad not loyal Not reply to custom request Shame to you and will inform all people I know In loud my employees and customers Ivan Rosen email@example.com"
Cons: "See red comment above."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process, no clear communication with passengers, delays in boarding not explained, people sent away or told off, huge attitude and chip on the shoulder. In the U.S., we are customers that paid for a service and are asking for details on that service. In Europe, we are annoyances that depend on staff at the boarding gates to get on the plane, so power tripping and general disdain to customers beings confused are part of the game. I will try never to fly Austrian Airlines again. Absolutely unacceptable behavior toward families, mothers with children, senior citizens. I can almost see the smirks and annoyed and superior attitude of staff at the boarding gate when they had to deal with more passengers asking why boarding hasn't started half an hour ago when we were announced it would. No answers, just show me the passport and boarding pass, ok, please go back, we'll let you know, then ignore questions."
Pros: "Great flight. Was long but made nice by staff/crew and entertainment options."
Pros: "I had double seat all to myself so that was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2hrs because of the strike - very annoying. The food was average for the plane foodn but the desert was excellent"
Pros: "Very orderly fashion onto boarding"
Cons: "My suitcase got destroyed"
Pros: "Overall reasonable flight. Nothing to write home about"
Cons: "Breakfast was what I imagine prison food must be like. Rest of meals were fine"
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Check-in to Canada not possible when passengers have third country passport and Canadian residence card. A combination, although very common, proofed to difficult for AUA personnel. Because of check-in delays lousy seats and miserable overall experience."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."
Pros: "Flight smoothness, service, friendliness, pilot experience, stewardesses (except for one), food, delicious."
Cons: "All flight attendants were great except for one tall with very short blonde hair. What a poor attitude! She really ruined my trip. There was not an exchange with her that was friendly and agreeable. When serving drinks a second time, she asked me what would I like to drink and I answered: What do you have? I had not asked the first time drinks were served since I knew I wanted orange juice. he second time, and not wanted to drink the same, I asked: what do you have? and her answer was: "Same as before". I had to let her know I had not asked before and then she proceeded to tell me the different drinks and finally added: My colleague will take care of you. She did not want to serve me. The first incident went I tried to use the bathroom in the back of the plane, she would tell people: "don"t use that one, I need that bathroom for......." ( not sure for what but her tone was so rude,that people walked to the other bathroom embarrassed). All I can say is that everything else was great, including the friendliness of all other crew, but that one ruined the experience. A third time I got up to walk to the bathroom and the seatbelt sign was on, but so it had been for a long time. She prompted me to go back to my seat. All others seem to do their job without been rude, Not sure why this one couldn't. Job stress? Not the passenger's problem. Besides that and the poor movie choices, everything else was great. I think the flight was delayed but to that point everything was going so smooth, I didn't even notice. I will fly Austrian again, and would love to visit Vienna. Please advise how to add the miles of my trip to my account. I booked in Kayak, left to Ohio from Miami running from hurricane Irma, my return from Ohio to Miami was cancelled and I had to embark on that long plan10 day trip without even returning home to Miami to pack. I totally forgot about putting the miles on my account on either ticket counter."
Pros: "flight was fast and we came into a gate instead of having to come into terminal by bus. Left on time an arrive early"
Cons: "nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "Good place for the legs"
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "flight was late."
Cons: "I specifically selected three seats for my Wife and two children ages 7 and 5. I did not fly back with them and at check in the three seats were confirmed on a boarding pass printed at their departure location. Upon checking in on the connecting flight in Vienna, the seat assignment had been completely disregarded and three seats located 10+ aisles apart were given to a family traveling together??????? This makes no sense and must be due to booking through a third party. Unacceptable and not worth the $40 per ticket savings."
Pros: "Service beyond expectations"
Cons: "When I was boarding all representatives was very unfriendly and I would say they were rude."
Pros: "surprisingly tasty meal, smooth and on time flight"
Cons: "boarding in Vienna a bit chaotic , mostly caused by requirement to register passport for transatlantic flights"
Pros: "Pillows were great, blankets clean and comfy, food was even good, staff was extremely helpful and polite.."
Cons: "nothing, it was a great flight from beginning to end"
Cons: "I reached out several times to the airline and nobody returned my calls or answered the phone. I needed to switch my flight/get a refund and was unable to reach them"
Pros: "The food was excellent and the business class layout was perfect."
Cons: "On the arrival at Toronto, there was no one at the gate to roll out the gangway bridge. So we waited on the plane 10 minutes. We were flying on to LAX on Air Canada. It took 1 3/4 hours for our luggage to clear the US Customs pre check. Unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom and they should have provided an additional snack during the flight. Did not like that in order to select a seat prior to the check in period I had to pay for the selection."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and competent"
Cons: "Food was way too salty. That needs to be addressed by airlines. Not a healthy or palatable experience."
Pros: "In-flight magazine was interesting."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes. I made my connection. But heard one woman say she and her husband would miss hers."
Pros: "I flew to Venice on Austrian Airlines to make a connection on an Air Canada flight to Toronto. When we debarked from the Austrian Airline onto the tarmac and picked up our luggage, I could find no signs indicating where to go for connecting flights, nor any signs indicating the gates of connecting flights. I was told that to make a connecting flight, I should go out to the main lobby of the airport, At the information desk they directed me to the Air Canada check in desk, where I found the check-in for my flight was closed. That was the the beginning of a nightmare chase to get to the plane to Toronto. I made it only because of the kindness of people in the check in, security and customs lines. Austrian Airlines should be kinder to its passengers making connecting flights. They seemed to abandon us passengers in a chaotic airport."
Pros: "It went smoothly and my luggage showed upon time"
Cons: "Cramped quarters good thing it was a short hop"
Pros: "I liked the extended leg room in front row of economy class."
Cons: "A couple of the flight attendants were rude to people on the jet. They seemed agitated and annoyed."
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: "Great service except Vienna airport is too chaotic and baggage wrapping cost 12 euros per piece."
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "United did not honour the seat assignment that Airfare.com gave me so I sat in a middle seat. But the entire seating plan on United is so bad it should be a violation of the anti torture convention."
Pros: "Well worth the upgrade!"
Pros: "Service was efficient and satisfactory."
Cons: "There is an extra charge to reserve a seat in advance. I lost my wallet and glasses case on board. They fell out of my carryon. They clearly had fallen under my seat and likely had slipped to rows in front of or behind that seat. I discovered their loss after going through security in Vienna. Customer service contacted the plane immediately, but we were told they were not there. Clearly little effort was spent to find them and Austrian Airline has not helped."
Cons: "Very unprofessional handling of mechanical failure by United. Gave us a lowsy $10 coupon and not even Club access."
