Pros: "The food and very professional and friendly service."

Pros: "Crew was great. Peppy and kind."

Pros: "Both the flight crew and the flight attendants were great. It was the smoothest landing I have had it quite dome time"
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "most of the flight attendants were excellent except one particular one who was basically yelling at passengers. she had a a logo or a badage on her that identifies her as a manager or a crew lead. she had poor manners and need major improvement"
Cons: "the seats are small and very small space in comparison to Lufthansa"
Pros: "Flight was delayed which caused us to change our flight from United to Lufthansa. Like Lufthansa much better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Had to get a different flight because we would miss the next flight."
Cons: "Boarding was not clear! We were waiting for an announcement and none came. We got up when we saw the seating area clearing out. Earlt day International departures are sheer madness. The Check-in and security lines were crazy. Will take later flight next time."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?"
Cons: "К сажалению,мне испортили отпуск. Был утеряны мой багаж. Я вынуждена 3 день ходить по магазинам и тратить свое время на отдых,покупая необходимые вещи,те, что необходимо для отдыха. Я потеряла три дня отдыха. И до сих пор я дожидаясь , сижу в квартире и не знаю когда он прибудет. Я крайне не довольна To the planting, I was spoiled vacation. My luggage was lost. I have to go shopping for 3 days and spend my time on vacation, buying the necessary things, those that are necessary for recreation. I lost three days of rest. And so far I'm waiting, sitting in the apartment and I do not know when he will arrive. I am extremely unhappy"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Delayed...delayed and delayed some more!!!!!"
Pros: "The TVs we’re newer and had a great entertainment selection available for a 12 hour flight"
Cons: "The seats were a very old style. Not very comfortable. Alcohol was required to be purchase which is not typical in international flights of this length."
Cons: "There was not hot tea/coffee offered with a sandwich."
Cons: "We (parents) were business class, but our two kids in coach, yet Swiss doesn’t allow “guests” in the lounge. Hmmm. What a bunch of BS."
Pros: "Even though the flight was very short, the team moved quickly through the cabin ensuring everybody had a drink and a snack. They looked quite concerned when I turned down the pretzel sandwich, so I accepted and found it quite good! Also, team made sure my parent with reduced-mobility had a good boarding and transfer experience."
Cons: "As always, seats are narrow. And the "neighbors" were normal-sized. The usual struggle for elbow "air-space" occurred."
Cons: "the boarding was weird because of the aircraft change and rearranging of seats. the computer reassigned us very strange, making us seating mostly in one are, while other rows were completely empty."
Pros: "Efficient check-in, boarding and on-board experience. Great seat and entertainment. Food also very decent."
Cons: "I find Swiss’ pricinh policy for on-board internet totallh ludicrous and an outright insult. Also, I sometimes appreciate a bit more empathy in the way things get announced - no announcement for security video or when they disrupt a movie with their Swiss commercial clips - they just turn it on. Not abtreat experience."
Pros: "on board"
Cons: "12 of January, 2018 Dear Austrian Airlines authority, I address to your kind attention to asist me to get to me the hat qhich I lost on board of the flight 1576 when I arrived to Vienna airport on my way frpom JFK to Lwo. It happened because it was no room above my seat's bin and the steard helped me to get my heat in another bin. Unfortunately I forgot at the moment when I left the board of the plane, a minute later I reminded that I forgot my hat but I was not allowed to go back and get my hat. I tried to communicate with the Lot&Found office in Vienna airport as I had 2h40 minutes in connection time and it was enough time to get me back the hat, unfortunately nothing was really done from the airport staff to get me my hat and made to me possible continue traveling with my hat. I spoke to two managers, the name I could share with you if you need. The Found office registered my black hat and the plastic box under the number F2018/000682. In this situation I ask your offices to deliver my hat and the plastic box to Lviv airport as sson as possible as this is a special hat for my daily prayers. I wish you best and ask for your kind assistance to send the item as soon as possible with the nearest flight. Sincerely, Meylakh Sheykhet"
Cons: "The airline changed a seat reservation after I paid for it. The Swiss support staff told me on the phone they would call me back. They never called back. I called again and was told the seats are changed and I can’t do anything anymore. The return flight seats also disappeared from the reservation. I had also paid for it. The support staff when I called again put back the seats for my return flight. I tried to check in online. Not working. Tried at least 50 times. Not working. Called the support staff. They told me to call the check in support center. I called the check in support center at least 50 times where mi was told the staff are busy and could not answer the call. I called at 6:00am next day where I was told by the check in support staff that my ticket had an issue which they did not know exactly what was the issue but prevented me to do a check in. I drove more than 2 hours to the airport where finally I could check in but I was told that my return flight seats had disappeared again. They managed to put them back again. I hope this time it’s finally ok. The support staff on the phone told me I could get reimbursed for the seat reservation I had paid for for the on going flight. The Swiss staff at the airport told me there would be no refund. Swiss is terrible"
Pros: "Four economy short-hauls in two days: That extra tad legroom (A321, A320, CS100) Planes are very clean Good quality snacks Great staff"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Service was perfect Food was incredible Movies and entertainment high level"
Cons: "No seat entertainment."
Pros: "the food was delicious, the movie selection was great, the seats were comfortable, the plane was chilly but they supplied us all with nice warm blankets, and I prefer it be cold over hot on the plane any day."
Cons: "The seats in economy were unbearable for anyone of normal size, as I am. It is not possible to sit in even bare comfort in them. Obviously I'll have to find another airline or factor a size upgrade into the price"
Pros: "Boarding was on time."
Cons: "Departed 20 minute late. The tv screen(one per 4 rows) was too small to see. I don't remember getting ear phones."
Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive. The food was surprisingly good. I would definitely try to fly SWISS again."
Cons: "Not a big deal, but I missed the vents above the seats."
Cons: "On the flight to Zurich the passenger behind me gave me a difficult time about reclining my seat back but keep in mind he had his reclined. Coming back to Newark the gentleman behind my boyfriend made a comment how he didn't have room due to his seat being reclined. The passenger next to us was arguing with the passenger in front of her because she didn't want that person to recline their seat back. I have never experienced such rude people on a flight and I realize this is beyond your control. It made for a very uncomfortable and stressful flight. Maybe signs can be posted or a message when booking your flight that ALL passengers have a right to recline seats and if space is an issue for your comfort then upgrade to business class for more room."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, and on time flight"
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "Service ok"
Cons: "Horrible food, tvs didn't work, crowded."
Pros: "Both the food and service were fantastic. A great choice of mid flight entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was good and comfortable"
Pros: "Once boarded we took off pretty quickly, crew were extremely nice, food was great"
Cons: "no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late. This is my second experience in a week with Swiss flights being 2-4 hours behind."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and friendly. That is a great thing since it's a long flight. Very well prepared! Entertainment was nice lots of options there to keep you busy."
Cons: "I wasn't pleased with their meals so that it's important when it's a long flight, and not many choices available."
Pros: "I'm very satisfied with Swiss airline excellent service starting from the flight attenders very professional friendly excellent food .if I would recommend this airline absolutely 100%.."
Pros: "the entertainment system was perfect, there were lots of movies and shows to entertain you, including newly release films. there were games and music also availble. the seating was comfortable we had blankets and pillows. The beverage service great and the food was good to. although there could have been better options in terms of the dessert ( ice cream taht was provided)"
Cons: "the boarding was poor, we waited in line to board and they did not announce to us that we need to have our ticket stamped before we got to the door, as a result we were sent out of line once the ticket was stamped we had to rejoin the line from the back. When i got through they then said something was wrong with my ticket in which they took it and I was pulled out of the line. they should try to the ticket check and the boarding line at the same time"
Cons: "Bag is missing and no one at bagga area to help! Have waited almost an hour!!!!"
Pros: "Seats are roomy"
Cons: "Selection of movies rather poor"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew, nice food."
Cons: "I found it uncomfortable to watch TV/movies when the seat in front of me was pushed back - the screen was too close."
Pros: "Boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "No tv, but short fligh anyways"
Pros: "The crew were great. They did the best they could given the circumstances. We got a compensation voucher because of all the trouble on the flight. That's something, though it's not super useful for the occasional traveler on SWISS (2000 miles and more bonus miles or CHF 50 travel voucher)."
Cons: "The plane arrived in Boston 50 minutes late, because we left Zurich late. That was because we were waiting on people to make a connection. Which was probably because their SWISS flight was late. Why are all SWISS flights running late??? There was no coffee or tea on the flight because there was a problem with the electrical system of the hot water machines. That could have been fixed before we left.... The entertainment system is clunky, and it didn't help that it had to be rebooted (took 20 minutes !?!?) in the middle of the flight to deal with some 'isssues'. The big boxes with the entertainment system underneath the seats are not fun either, they really cut into legroom. In general, it seems this plane is in need of a bit of an overhaul and maintenance. And whatever happened to Swiss punctuality? I'm not used to SWISS flights being late. You can do much better than that, you used to!"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full, so we were spread out and had more room"
Cons: "Carry-on allowances continue to be significantly less than other comparable airlines- was only allowed one piece"
Pros: "This flight left on time and landed safely."
Cons: "Not worse than other international flights. Entertainment system better than Lufthansa or United. This plane used the 2 jack connection for headphones, which prevents one from using own/normal stereo jack headphones. The provided phones are terrible had to be cranked really loud because of the plane noise, it was almost impossible to understand dialogues in movies."
I’ve contacted kayak several times before my flight from frankfurt to the US. It is ridiculous that Lufthansa sells a flight with a 45 minute layover from a connecting flight, I sent email and calls about my concerns and one person got back to me telling me he will see if he can change my flight and he’ll call me back and said that I should be fine to make it since Lufthansa sells that flight. I never got a call back and had to run through the airport and ask to skip in line at passport check to barley make it to my flight. When I know there was easier connection flights
Long flights should be moreoften snack services
Pros: "It's good to flight public transit long time I'm the food is really bad pouring food"
Cons: "Petiole are treated spending $1000 on a trip as poor with very uncomfortable seats and mediocre food"
Cons: "Boarding be insured as I have a ticket"
Pros: "Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system."
Cons: "Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights."
Pros: "Lufthansa was great in helping me through this mess."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight from Munich to Athens and had to purchase a new flight. Then, when I got back to Athens for my return flight to LAX I found it had been canceled and had to once again purchase a new flight to get home. Also, not happy that Kayak doesn’t have a customer service number to call."
Pros: "Love to fly Lufthansa, I never had a bad experience with them"
Pros: "Short flight with swift and effective service"
Pros: "Once again the crew was great and helped me find a place to stow my carry on since I was in the emergency row. The snack was also very tasty."
Cons: "Two flights same food... Too bad"
Pros: "Everything was fine except for the comfort."
Cons: "The rows were so close together it was hard to get in and out of your row. If the seat in front of you reclined, the t.v. was 9 inches in front of your face."
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Wider economy seats"
Cons: "Metal box impedied foot space for 15 hours and monitor froze several times during flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Pros: "In the end I made the flight."
Cons: "Couldn’t add my baggage online thus resulting in a penalty for paying at the airport. Also ticket was booked by Kayak as a standby without alerting me."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice they still give a snack"
Cons: "The flight was 100 percent full. So it was very difficult to move around. And on a 10 hour flight that is tough."
Pros: "Entertainment was very diverse ;great"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "A little too warm for me."
Pros: "The Staff"
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about my flight"
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."
Pros: "Waiting area needs upgrade...40 minute flight, no time for food or entertainment..."
Cons: "I missed my dlight from Chicago to Nashville because the flight was late"
Pros: "Good overall experience"
Pros: "Food, crew and comfort was alright"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. There was not announcement. Everyone rushed to board and was very chaotic"
Pros: "great flight attendants - very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The landing was extremely turbulent - an announcement from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "Service was good, got to change my seat last minute to sit next to my husband."
Cons: "No entertainment for the kids, changed the gate 2hrs before departing from A60 to A1 - not fun with 2 kids had to walk across the airport."
Pros: "The big deal for me was that I was upgraded (at no cost) to Premium Economy class. I enjoyed the extra leg room and the ability to lie back (further than in regular economy class). The free drinks were also a plus."
Cons: "The only thing I can remark upon is that because someone in front of you can lie back so far, it becomes difficult for the person sitting in the window seat to leave his or her seat without disturbing the person in front of him or her."
Pros: "food was great"
Cons: "gate changed and we gad to take the bus to the plane which lead to sn delay and almost the plane couldn't leave before the airport closed. however, we eventually made it ..."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on-time flight, and an AMAZING LANDING into Munich. Kudos to the pilot and his team."
Pros: "On time. Friendly helpful crew. Comfortable seats. Free wine with meals."
Pros: "Ample leg space. Friendly, efficient crew. Restroom area provided space for exercise."
Cons: "Food was fair."
Cons: "Meals served in the 2nd flight wasnt up to the mark."
Pros: "Loved the clean, bright, new airplane. Loved having a few empty seats to spread out."
Cons: "Wish economy seats had power outlets to charge phones and tablets."
Cons: "On May 16, 2017, there was a group of Albanian and American passengers rushing through Frankfurt Airport to catch the connecting flight to New York. Their first flight (LH#1425) from Tirana to Frankfurt was 45 minutes late causing them to eventually miss their connecting flight. At this point, the passengers were asked to show their passports, separating the US citizens from the rest. All the US citizens were loaded on a bus and provided hotel, dinner and breakfast. The Albanian citizens were moved to the lower level of the airport where they were left to freeze all night. Some of the passengers were elderly and had their heart or high blood pressure medications in their luggage that they didn’t have access to. One US-Albanian citizen was asked to separate from his Green-Card holder wife in order to receive the US citizen treatment…"
Pros: "Love crew & very clean"
Cons: "Need better food options for vegans"
Cons: "Very small narrow seats in business class on this flight."
Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"
Pros: "Meal served was very good and refreshments were offered often. Good choice of movies and viewing options"
Cons: "Seats space is a bit crowded"
Pros: "Good service, free beer and great in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Not friendliest crew"
Pros: "Movie selection was great, food was ok as was the service."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning was nothing short of a cattle call. No plane ettiquette and no direction from the crew on how to properly deplane. I am a 6'2" tall person stuck in between two 300+ men. Not only did I feel uncomfortable I felt unsafe. When I asked if I could upgrade to premium economy or even business it was a straight no without even looking in the system to see if their were open seats. The girl in front of me ate with her seat reclined which allowed me a whole inch of space to bring my food to my mouth. Terrible airline and terrible experience. If I could cuss in this review I would."
Pros: "nothing at all."
Cons: "There was 1 hour layout, but the plane was late. i was leaving the plane at the boarding time for my next flight. the gates very extremely far away from each other it took me 20 minutes to get from the original gate to the next one and i was running all the time. by the time i got there i had no place to store my carry on luggage anywhere despite the fact the storage compartments very occupied by small backpack which could easily be stored underneath seats. i asked a flight attended to help me but she answered she was not on duty and left (what the hell!!!) what was she doing on the plane then. i wound up with my luggage underneath the seat, my bag in my lap squeezed and extremely uncomfortable. overall one of the worst flights i have ever had. i was lucky it was only one hour long."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Earphones didn't work and space was very tight and I'm short. It was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "short, slightly delayed flight"
Cons: "Overnight flights are usually a pain in the neck, which is obviously not the airline's fault"
Pros: "The stewardess who served drinks and snacks were kind, fast, and efficient."
Cons: "The woman at the United Airline check in counter before we boarded the plane was rudely yelling at everybody to board the plane. She was very unpleasant, not welcoming, no smile, just plane yelling."
Pros: "The name of the company"
Cons: "I has a flight between mad to franfurt connection to Miami. And lufthansa never advise me that the first leg of my trip was cancelled."
Pros: "That the flight left on time and arrived early. The flight attendant was very friendly but knew his job well, and went the extra mile to be sure we were all comfortable."
Cons: "That the plane seemed noisy (from the back row at least). That the flight attendant did not help me find my seat. After travelling almost 24 hours I was tired and was trying to find the seat using the boarding gate number. I figured out I should have been in 9 D by the end of the flight. Instead I sat in the last row because it was empty and there was not a seat 26A. I almost missed this flight because my boarding pass said 26A and really it was 27A. I did look at the board. I did not compare the board to the ticket, and the numbers were so close my tired brain thought they matched. When it was time to board I checked at gate 26A and she sent me around the construction. I told the guy there (27A) I was looking for 26A and he said to go around the construction. I told him they sent me to him and he insisted I go around the construction. I would have missed the plane if someone else had not come up just then and said he was going to Richmond. At that point I told the guy I was too, and he checked my ticket. Some of the problem was my tired brain and you cannot fix that. Perhaps when someone tells your employee that they have already been sent around the construction the employee should just check the ticket instead of trying to send them back."
Pros: "Good amount of leg space"
Pros: "entrance with classical music! staff was friendly. probably in top 5 flights"
Pros: "The plane was comparatively clean"
Cons: "Staff need to be a little more genuine with their simles or just don’t give obvious fake ones."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants,"
Pros: "crew was great ,seats was better than good"
Pros: "Perfect timing between flights."
Cons: "A small sandwich would have been nice:)"
Pros: "Flight time was quite good"
Cons: "There was a 45 min departure delay and no announcements to us while waiting in the plane about it"
Pros: "New dream-liner from Wew to ORD"
Cons: "I ordered Kosher food but they didn't have me on the kosher food list - I ended up not eating!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Quality of red wine"
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: "One hour late for take off..."
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: "They were really good with checking in my excess baggage and my two cats. Cats travelled well and arrived as expected. Check in at O'Hare was very friendly. In the air, flight attendants were very accommodating and friendly. All luggage and cats arrived! The plane from O'Hare to Austria was very nice!"
Cons: "I think I have gotten used to Asiana's and Korean Airlines'. It just didn't seem to measure up to their business class service. The food (which has been highly rated!) I found to be just mediocre. Maybe it's because I was living in Asia for eight years and had become more accustom to asian cuisine?? I didn't love the seat either. When you recline, your feet are cramped inside a small area under the seat in front of you. It was cramped. The ability to customize the seat recline was limited. I like being able to move the head and feet into my own customized position. The business class seats from Vienna to Amman felt like coach."
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: "The flight staff was very attentive, professional, and polite. It seemed like they were always bringing the passengers things like snacks and drinks. We never felt like we needed anything. This was my first time flying to Europe and flying with Swiss. I will definitely choose them again!"
Cons: "I really can’t think of anything I didn’t like!"
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: "Very good flight crew. Decent food and nice entertainment."
Cons: "Poor web site. Very poor boarding crew. Boarding crew made no announcements for who must get re-elected ticketed for shares carrier tucked or web site ticketed passengers. No prep boarding plan given therefore mass at gate."
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: "Nothing, we never got to go on our flight to Vienna. The only good thing is the manager, Servando, found us an alternative route after some delay. Even then, we had to haggle and really fight for fair treatment for a mistake that was 100% the airline's fault."
Cons: "Our seats were involuntarily given away by the airport staff. We were never notified until we were scanning our tickets to board in. At that time, we had already checked in and received our boarding passes, as well as checking in 3 bags while we were traveling with a large group. There was no way we wanted to volunteer our seats, especially since we had a transfer flight to catch. We clearly stated we did NOT want to volunteer our seats at the ticket counter. No staff notified us until we were about to get on the plane to board. The flight supervisor was very rude and unprofessional, offering us no alternative solutions. I was really disappointed with such a grievous mistake by the airline, and I would not recommend flying Austrian Airlines unless it was absolutely the only airline available. They need to fix their processes for authorizing when they volunteer a passenger's seat. This caused our group a lot of stress and almost became a logistical nightmare."
Pros: "Staff were always courteous."
Pros: "Austrian Airlines does it right— service, food, cleanliness. This was a really terrific experience. They even boarded efficiently, having those with seats in the back board first."
Cons: "This was a great flying experience."
Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"
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: "smooth flight, friendly crew"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff"
Cons: "GET AN AGREEMENT WITH GLOBAL ENTRY"
Pros: "Good service and on time."
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: "Everything OK"
Cons: "Arrived 5’ later, lost train"
Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg room seats & were told we'd have exit row. We ended up in the middle section, which made it very uncomfortable for the overnight flight."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Buses to aircrafts. No snack on short flights."
Pros: "After flight to Vienna was cancelled, we were put on a flight to Frankfurt instead."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an email at 5:16am for an 8:15 am flight titled, "Austrian Airlines flight #704 from PRG on time". It was in fact cancelled. Unfortunately we missed the connection for the flight to Newark, which we were expressly told would be held for us... they shut the door 30 seconds before we arrived, with the plane still at the gate. Had to then go to the only counter in the terminal to see if we could get on standby. Finally got on a flight to JFK instead at 5:15pm."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, generous and courteous."
Pros: "The crew were very kind. The food was good."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very narrow and there is no entertainment."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth"
Cons: "We were 7 persons on the flight so we brought 7 bags to get on the plain but in the check in they told us that the flight is crowded so we can't get so many bags on. The flight wasn't full and there were plenty of room for our bags."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "flight was late."
Pros: "I fly this route on Austrian 5 times a year, and I nearly always choose Austrian because it hast the overall best 'package' - a comfortable plane with excellent sleeping seats in business class, the best airline food in the world from Do & Co, the nicest staff that really cares about your well being and the quickest connection between Bangkok and Vienna."
Cons: "The entertainment program is a bit slim, to my taste - but I'm not a big consumer of inflight movies, as I prefer to get more sleep when I fly. When compared to the entertainment program on Singapore Airlines, for example, Austrian's own can't really compete."
Pros: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"
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: "They offered passangers ti move to raws that wete half empty so we will have more room."
Pros: "Austrian airlines did not have enough passingers and they transfer my father who is very sick and old to turkish airline."
Cons: "Unprofessional very, very!"
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: "Short flight and the crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Loading of the bus to the terminal was slow only 1 bus was available."
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"
Pros: "Made it there safely."
Cons: "Not much space in the seats on the flight especially for 10 straight hours."
Pros: "Flight services were good. Staff friendly. food was good"
Cons: "boarding at Tel Aviv was terrible. Specifically a staff member name Michelle was unprofessional and did not care much about passengers who waited for hours at the Group line because there was no indication that it is a group line. No one from the airliner bothered to explain or advise the passengers who were waiting and after more tan hour waiting when they eventually got to the head of the line they were told to go and stand in other lines. This was insane Long waiting times confusion Flight was late hence almost missed connection"
Cons: "Been traveling with Auystrian for a while now and so far so good, I'm very satisfied"
Pros: "I like the personalized service and the understanding crew."
Cons: "For the amount of people flying into and out of Thera, the check-in system could be improved."
Pros: "The company that not give us what lthay have to after we lost our tour at Berlin"
Pros: "The food They were kind"
Cons: "I was not on this flight as a mistake was made by either Kayak or WestJet. I was not refunded my money which I think is unfair."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Boarding was orderly and there was enough overhead space on this full flight. Even though the flight left later than schedule it was not a terrible delay. The overall experience was the opposite of my last flight on West Jet."
Pros: "Crew and staff at gate fantastic. Accommodated me sitting with partner on both legs (booked flights separately)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to a mechanical issue (replace a tire) from YYZ to LAX caused me to miss my connecting in LAX to SJC"
Pros: "Great and responsive crew, still-amusing WestJet wit. Very organized!"
Cons: "Some older (like 1940s-1950s) movies for in-flight entertainment would have been great."
Cons: "It would be nice if WestJet didn't gouge customers during unfortunate circumstances"
Cons: "Don't like having to download app for entertainment....some devices not current enough to download.. Not everyone has devices Kids disappointed..prefer Alaska monitors"
Pros: "The staff on board the westjet plane were nice but a bit short (except one blonde women flight attendant, she was lovely). The others seemed to be a bit short, likely due to heat or annoyance at punta cana airport"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was by far a complete failure. I understand we are held hostage by PUJ airport but westjet needs to step up their canadian staff there. Language by westjet staff basically Spanish only and rude. We waited on a bus to drive 10 feet to our plane and the driver seemed to enjoy letting us sit in a closed bus with babies and children and elderly. One day this will cause a serious medical issue and westjet will pay dearly. Again, I am aware we cant control that but having a canadian manager there to ensure common sense is used with their customers from gate to plane is a must. Until better I will never fly westjet from there again. On the plane they ran out of food. Again major organizational issues from the companies point of view. Also made me pay twice to pick my seats on my connecting flights. This is petty and cheap. I will be demanding a discount or rebate from westjet due to all the above. If not my story will continue."
Pros: "Decent flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Also they said there is USB sockets at your seat but there were none."
Cons: "Later flight from Toronto delayed multiple times, finally to 2:40 am and then canceled at midnight. Way too late to find an affordable hotel, had to stay at expensive airport hotel instead."
Pros: "More leg room in seat than expected."
Pros: "I’m always impressed with the service on WestJet, and they didn’t disappoint on this flight. They were warm, courteous and hard working."
Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Pros: "The staff were super helpful and friendly, and the accommodations were clean and decently comfortable!"
Cons: "The food was very pricy and not that great. Also the boarding took a long time and seemed a little unorganized."
Pros: "Great flight. It was like the plane wasnt even moving !!"
Pros: "Airport counter staff v helpful. Crew were great. Helped lady with 2 kids. Looked after 1 while mom changing other."
Cons: "Need more seat room. No entertainment."
Cons: "Five hour flight delay due to a flight attendant not showing up on time, not taken care of in any way"
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at email@example.com"
Pros: "Seats. Great crew members"
Cons: "Having to pay for everything"
Pros: "that you can connect to wifi on air, awesome service, and very helpful when I was very late for my check in, they made it easier for me to still get on the plane"
Pros: "The stewards were great however no TV anymore and meals because of cost cutting was where we thought it was lacking."
Cons: "Refer to above :"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but it was due to weather, so it is really out of westjets hands."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "One of the flight attendents was rude. The head rests on the chairs didn't work. The chairs where uncomfortable. The plane was delayed. The drink selection was poor. The overall general westjet hospitality was just way below average and I felt like the company is turning so cheap I was worried they may have double sold my seat on the plane."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and I felt very safe and well looked after."
Cons: "Only credit cards or Uk debit were accepted to buy food. I paid $13.99 CAN for wifi for the entire flight that went down after about 2 hours"
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "The flight and the seating was comfortable. Food served was fine too."
Cons: "Well, they mixed up my check-in luggage during transit. As a result it got delayed and I had to spend the night without it. Although, I was informed about this miss when I landed in Vancouver, the team did not seem to feel particularly bad about it. Also, the process of getting reimbursed for the predefined expenditure allowance needs to be more efficient. Ideally, in such cases, the airlines should not only refund the check-in fee, but also provide a prepaid card to make any urgent purchases. Their current process requires one to bear the expenses initially, scan/click and send the original receipts and await a response from their baggage team. I am waiting to hear back from them on my submission."
Pros: "helped me find my bag when another airline lost it."
Pros: "Cancelled the flight and was utter chaos with no direction what so ever."
Cons: "Staff would not communicate with the passenger's."
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"

Pros: "It was nice staff r very friendly"
Pros: "Was very windy when leaving Hamilton but the captain handled the flight so smoothly that I was able to sleep through most of it!"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding from the minute we arrived in Hamilton till we got to Edmonton. So impressed with the customer service."
Cons: "On my ticket I had my wife, my mother-in-law and my two kids guess what, my wife and kid was marked as children and my one month was marked as adult, because of this we had to waste so much time in fixing this, the flight was early morning and we had planned to buy the breakfast from the airport because of this we couldn’t even buy breakfast we had to literally run for the flight"
Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."

Pros: "food, flight crew, leg room"
Cons: "crying babies"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Pros: "the connection time in Calgary was short, so overall the trip was verily quick. Generally, the flight was good, clean plane, good services."
Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Cons: "To be honest, our stuartess was very abrasive. To everyone."
Pros: "Airport Terminal waiting area was nice."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
Pros: "Liked most but don't understand why a family of 3 was separated. Bought tickets together."
Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
Pros: "It was a little bit delayed but after the airplane arrived everything was very fast."
Cons: "I don't have any problem about the west jet, I know that some delays is complete normal because the weather or air traffic."
Small seats means other passengers thoughtlessly take up your space. At least it’s a short flight.
Cons: "Service was cursory"
Cons: "Cramped seats. No IFE. Chaotic boarding. Luggage missed flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect! The crew always ready to serve us!"
Cons: "Perhaps, update media features! A small corner for children to keep them "busy"."
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "No food for such a long flight not enough leg room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour. We still managed to make our scheduled rendezvous."
Pros: "Fairly new plane... new and much improved entertainment system..."
Pros: "People are couteous"
Cons: "Very cramped; big doing and dance about overhead room so I gate checked. There was empty overhead space and bags very slow to come out at baggage claim"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Pros: "Everything except the earbuds"
Cons: "Earbuds sucked; acoustics off."
Cons: "Crazy uncomfortable seats, esp for such a long flight. I’m 5,7 and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me for the whole flight. Spent 45 minutes trying to land because of weather was very inconvenient. Other than the free dinner/breakfast we were never given the option to buy food."
Cons: "Flight attendants were unfriendly."
Pros: "Family emergency, changed flifgts home, we were treated very well, under the circumstances"
Pros: "Spacious seating. Attentive Stewardesses. Bathroom located close to seating area but was separated by the galley. That was a plus - no odor, no long lines by your seat."
Cons: "Use of ipads for entertainment rather than installed screens"
Pros: "on-board service"
Cons: "Late departures (about 30 minutes each way) with corresponding late arrivals. On the flight LAX to Vancouver due to late arrival of the plane, on the return flight supposedly because of a delay in loading luggage (the flight was fully boarded for 30+minutes before loading was completed). The late arrival in Los Angeles led to further delay as there was no available gate to accept us so we disembarked 50+minutes after the scheduled time."
Cons: "Terrible experience. I bought 2 tickets for my parents from New York to Shanghai a month ago. But on the day of flight, Air Canada refused their boarding, stating that they did not have Canada visas, the fight would transfer in Montreal which needs Canada visa. I had never heard about it and it was never mentioned when I booking the tickets. I called the first customer service who was rude and not helpful. Finally, I found out that my parents had to transfer to Toronto, which does not need a visa. But in order to make the change, I had to pay Air Canada extra $1180, which were more expensive than the tickets self. At that time, I had no other choice. I am really upset. I want to warm all Chinese who don't have green card or Canada visa that do not buy tickets from Air Canada. Their customer service told me that they did not have the obligation to list this kind of information on their website. So if you choose Air Canada, you lose your money and deal with all the hassles by yourself. I will never use Air Canada in my whole life again."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. The delay was announced after we had boarded and sat in the plane. Not acceptable. For the delay all that was served was water after about an hour, and pretzels and soft drink after two hours. Not acceptable."
Pros: "Dinner was good, breakfast was meh."
Cons: "Air temp was hot. Food came with tons of plastic wrapping."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Cons: "Late flight No info given to passengers"
Pros: "My seat at the exit door gave me ample leg room"
Cons: "Passengers were not feted in a special way due to the delay. .The unplanned extra time made me sick"
Cons: "YVR airport's Air Canada staff was extremely unprofessional. First, they cancelled my original itinerary and moved me to a flight 3 hours later. Now I understand it was holidays so I was okay thus far. I got to the airport 2 hours before the departure time and even though I had check-in online, I was requested to get into "Check-in assistance" line instead of the "baggage drop". The "Check-in assistance" line had multiple people rebooking their flights when at the counter (on an average each person was being held for 15 minutes by the slow staff). By the time I reached the counter, I was told that the gate had been closed and I will have to rebook. The staff said at that point that it was "just the way it is" and their terms and conditions have this clause saying they don't guarantee people will be boarded. Well, sure, don't board them if they're late but don't delay them on purpose and then strike them off the boarding list. Very Very disappointed."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "1. Boarding arrangement was very poor. 2. No zone number on our boarding passes. Although we were seated in seats 22,23, we were automatically pushed to zone 5 and forced to board last. 3. My wife and I were assigned two middle seats in two separate rows. 4. We were forced to check in our cabin baggage saying that there was lack of overhead space, but when we boarded among last passengers, there were a number of empty overhead bins. We could easily have saved 45 minutes in Toronto airport without having to wait for our bags."
Pros: "Flight attendant was snarky to my uncle when asked how come they did not have their prebooked seats together. Her reply was something along the lines of "you can take another flight" and then she walked off, not offering any other solution."
Pros: "The tremendous effort to support our making our connecting flight."
Cons: "The nightmare between flights in Toronto airport"
Cons: "Flight was late taking off"
Pros: "Smooth flight and we arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "I as first time travel from US to Canada no information given on flight regarding how to get to connections and customs. Unaware of requirements to claim luggage after customs and before security We were surprised at the lack of any offer of snacks on a five hour flight"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "They didn't give out free nuts/pretzels. The entertainment system was off for half the flight even through they said it would reboot in 10 minutes. Loading the plane was the slowest I have ever seen."
Pros: "In general, everything is fine. Boarding was good"
Cons: "Lack of food options for people with celiac disease. No ingredients on the dip in carrots and celery dip. Was told it was gluten free, but had a very bad reaction to it."
Pros: "More comfortable but because we payed $200 to fly emergency exit"
Cons: "That we had to pay $200 for emergency exit"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Economy seating is no longer designed to fit any passenger who is even slightly above average height."
Cons: "waiting a long time for some one to take us down stairs in the wheelchair to go to wash room ,and to collect our suit cases, and there was no wheelchair at the Plane exit door we have walk half way before we get one part way again, that when we wait very long she have left me and walk down stair, until a nice lady came and take me and let me went to the washroom and get our suit cases and take us to our passenger pickup. Every thing else was good. Thank God for a safe flight to and from I love to fly with AIR CANADA CHARLES GRAY"
Cons: "My original flight supposed to be at 19:30 but went at 18:30,no body inform me about the change and i stuck in the airport for 4 hours more"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "Good selection of free movies and shows on board. Some great and helpful flight attendants."
Cons: "The staff at check in were not overly helpful. We were running late and possibly going to miss our flight and they did not seem willing to help us out at all."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Cons: "Stuffed like hot sardines in the boarding area. Canadian customs take a long time for transit people"
Pros: "i didn't like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed and everything else since boarding was a mess. It was hard for the fly hostess to keep her calm and we knew she was stressed, as much as many passengers who lost their connection or who had really tied ones. I noticed also that it wasn't the only flight delayed so I am not sure if this is usual with Air Canada."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."
Cons: "Only in Canada they make you remove headset for takeoff and landing."
Pros: "The staff was accommodating."
Cons: "The flight had two legs: from Boston to Toronto and from Toronto to New Delhi. The layover was 1 hr 6 min, which was tight. After checking in our bags, we found out that the first leg of our flight is 2 hours late, so obviously we couldn't take the second flight. Looking at the TV monitors, I noticed that pretty much ALL Air Canada flights are seriously delayed. Luckily, there was an earlier flight to Toronto (which was scheduled to have already left, but it did not leave because that was delayed, too). The staff put us on that flight and double promised to make sure that our checked in baggage gets transferred to this alternate flight. The checked bags did not get transferred. When we arrived at Delhi, after an exasperating 1.5 hour delay after a 20 hour flight, the airline told us, and many others in the same situation, that our baggage did not arrive, and we have to come the next day to pick them up. The issue was, we were not staying in Delhi, just transiting through it. No luck, the airline said, because the customs have to be cleared at the port of entry. We are still waiting for our baggage. Oh, and if that was not enough, the airline allocated well separated seats for all the members of our family. I'd think it would be a common sense that people who have been booked on the same ticket must be assigned consecutive seats. But apparently Air Canada does not have much common sense. NOT flying with them ever again!"
Pros: "Everyone was nice and the seating area had room."
Pros: "Air Canada worked hard to get people where they needed to be but security was somewhat difficult although understandable"
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "arrived in London."
Cons: "flight delayed from 8 pm to 2 am. $10 voucher for food."
Pros: "wonderful airplane fantastic crew endless options for entertainment"
Cons: "wonderful airplane fantastic crew endless options for entertainment"
Pros: "Nice helpful staff, kept bringing by a water bottle to fill my water up."
