Missed this flight due to previous flight being delayed. No one helped with getting me through customs and borders security so I can make it on time. I had to stand in the longest line and end up staying overnight in Toronto. Now the airlines won’t pay for my hotel accommodation
Great food, great service, great plane
We bought seat 155$ but in reality it wasn't .no seat ,no refund
Cons: "I was not allowed to fly because the reason was “tourist” even though the website said that Croatia was open to tourists. I was not given a straight answer as to what is going on the whole day. The assistants at the Turkish ticket counter were very friendly but the experience was so stressful as I was stuck at the airport and there are no ATM’s so I could not pay for a visa to get a hotel to stay in Turkey for the night. I finally managed to pay online, but really just a horrible experience all around."
Cons: "For such a LONG flight, grateful to ask Turkish Airlines to make available bigger aircrafts."
Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."
Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable and again great staff."
Pros: "The flight itself was good. Turkish airlines provides some nice amenities; which I don't actually use. But they're nice."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on its scheduled day. So I had to wait an extra day to get home."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Cons: "I like the food and the service."
Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."
Cons: "Shake all the time,vomited"
Pros: "Excellent customer service from boarding to landing"
Pros: "Excellent crew service & food/beverage offerings"
Pros: "Great to watch live sports. Loading was fine. Food terrible. Staff ok."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is so overpriced, crowded and small."
Pros: "Punctual in terms of reaching destination, all else average."
Cons: "Less leg space, pantry service below expectations."
Pros: "Nice snack"
Cons: "No real boarding procedure followed, perhaps they do this with “certain” destinations they believe are not worth it. When asked why they didnt properly board us, or actually mae people sot on their assigned seats, they shoved me aside. Pretty rude (and im an elite plus traveler with them). I will avoid TKY from now on."
Pros: "The crew is very nice and try to make the flight experience easier."
Cons: "They lost my luggage, and this is not the first time either"
Pros: "Overall flight is good"
Cons: "The crew is really not aware of how to deal with passengers of various levels. They don't seem to have the sense of responsibility..."
Pros: "I had a gluten free meal"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "the movies were very nice. the screen was very nice the crew on the flight was nice."
Cons: "1. I wish that when I booked the flight it will say there is food on the flight, and that I'll have the option to choose vegetarian meal. 2. I wish the people at the Turkish lounge in I Istanbul would have been nice, and help me, and if not, guide me to a Turkish information to assist me with ordering vegetarian meal for the flight back, and to find something I've lost..."
Cons: "The crew was not very warm and/or welcoming - they were short, impersonal, and kind of cold"
Cons: "I miss the turkish delights they used to serve"
Pros: "Luggage policy, helpful ground and air crew. Price."
Cons: "IST stoppover, damaged luggages."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."
Cons: "When boarding the flight from Turkey, to Mumbai , we had to climb up the ladder with our hand luggage.Being senior citizen and traveling in Busniss class was very hard for us."
Cons: "I was selected to seat near the window before departure dare unfortunately i found my self in the middle of the people, so dissapointed"
Pros: "Everything. Clean plane, cool cologne and lotion in spacious bathroom. Crew was super friendly, helpful and accommodating to us travelers w kids."
Cons: "departure time changed 3 times"
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Staff were helpful and professional."
Pros: "The food is great, nice entertainment, we good travel essentials!"
Cons: "One of the crews looked a little grumpy. I was referring to the lady who was handing out food. She was not at all happy everytime she serves the meal."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and everything was good"
Cons: "Lost my baby stroller and didn't found when arrived"
Pros: "They put a fabric pad on the seat to make it softer . I'm 6' and was comfortable. They have nice children's toiletry kits. Great entertainment system, tons of movies and shows."
Cons: "If you sit the the second cabin on the 777 they run out of buns and champagne by the time they get to you which is unacceptable for business class and they only finished the meal service 2 and a half hours into a 10:30 pm departure flight which is way too slow. They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."
Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"
Cons: "It never happened."
Pros: "Superb service, food and entertainment. Especially liked the wifi that allowed me to read and send emails, texts and do some work."
Cons: "When I called the night before to check into the flight our reservation had been cancelled and we did not know until we got to the airport Turkish Airlines counter in Mumbai very early in the morning that we could still fly. Never understood why our names had been removed for our return flight. Because we didn't have a boarding pass when arriving at the airport the security hesitated to allow us into the facility. Luckily we found our itinerary and they allowed us entry."
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"
Pros: "Stewards, air hostesses, food, entertainment & the toiletries kit"
Cons: "Seat size! Boarding queues"
Pros: "Great great great"
Cons: "Never been better than this time. Usually turkish is the best and i allways travell with turkish and i feel safe and co fortable"
Pros: "Very helpful and respectfull crew"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins after the designated time"
Pros: "Turkish airlines crew & service are excellent especially if you compare it to those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Courtesy of the crew & good old fashion meal service. Also the entertainment on board."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean seats, good food..."
Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"
Just to be honest and to take care of people
There was a 2hr delay to an 8:40 departure. SUPER irritating. Had chosen an earlier flight so that these kinds of things wouldn't happen. Breakfast was poor a croissant and a yogurt. Not enough for an adult, I've had better on other international flights.
Pros: "Crew was very warm and friendly"
Cons: "The experience in the Frankfurt airport was terrible! We had arrived from Rome with an hour between landing and boarding. When we were directed to security at Gate Z, there was a huge mob of people, not really in lines. We didn’t know what we were waiting for or where to stand, but we and others around us were very worried about missing our next flight. There was no Lufthansa representative to help. Finally someone directed some of us to a long roundabout back way to Gate Z security. We did get to our gate in time for boarding, only because it had been delayed. Then we sat in the plane for over half an hour. Altogether, it took off more than an hour late, so we missed our flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."
Cons: "Boarding was slow but they had increased number of wheelchair clients. Not their fault but was a known so the process could have been started earlier."
Pros: "Service was good. Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "The departure area at terminal 1 YYZ was crowded and not the most comfortable experience"
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Cons: "Space was limited"
Pros: "Nice touches like pillow and blanket, lots of movies and hot meals."
Cons: "My seat was very uncomfortable for such a long flight! It didn't recline and was cramped. Also I have terrible nut allergy and when I tried to communicate that to the flight staff the kept telling me to tell someone else."
Pros: "I liked that we got served a lot of snacks and food :)"
Cons: "Nothing honestly! Smooth flight :)"
Cons: "food screens"
Cons: "Not sure about booking with flyus. Com- next time I will prefer not to use Kayak if flight is booked through flyus.com"
Pros: "Smooth boarding."
Cons: "The cramped seats, not a lot legroom and people complained once you reclined."
Pros: "Service from Milan to Toronto was good"
Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. One of the smoothest flights I’ve taken in a long time"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and basically a free for all rather than by rows( back of the plane first)"
Pros: "Flight directly to Tampa"
Cons: "I did not like the passenger reclining their seat all the way back. this left me with no room to relax on a 10 hr flight"
Cons: "Lack of drinking water fountains at the FRA airport"
Cons: "No body helped me. My first flight got delayed and missed my connecting flight. People were rude and showed that they didn’t care. I had to wait 4 hours for the next flight. I received little compensation"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew, they not only served us well, they were having fun doing it. Job well done. Thank you all."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great."
Pros: "Great crew, polite and helpful. Pillow and blanket were a nice touch. Will use them again!!"
Cons: "The food isn't that great though it wasn't horrible. Plane was extremely warm both to me and some seated around me."
Pros: "The flight attendants all were very helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs"
Pros: "We upgraded our ticket to business class and it was great. It left on time and even landed a little early so we had plenty of time to catch the next flight"
Pros: "Crew helped us with connections"
Cons: "Choice of seat came with a cost. Very uncomfortable seating. Not enough room."
Cons: "New plane. Very little legroom. New seat back pouches hold next to nothing."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful, even once we had a long delay"
Cons: "The cabin was very tight and the seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Easy flight and on time"
Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"
Pros: "nice and polite crew"
Cons: "no screens/maps with route information no enterteinment unless downloaded on your own devise, I had an Iphone which is too small to watch anything.... seat hardly reclined at all and felt extreemely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."
Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."
Pros: "Professionali customer service. Food and beverage service very good and generous. Love the European hospitality."
Pros: "The flight was really on time and the flight crew was just amazing. The overall experience was exceptional. Will recommend this servic to any one who will like to travel"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Pros: "Almost everything, the flight crew was friendly and timely, the movie selection was great, the flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The temperature near my seat was very uncomfortable, to the point where I was sweating for most of my ride. The passenger next to me, also complained to me as well."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Pros: "Wonderful overall"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly- no delays."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
Pros: "The raw was empty and I could sleep whole 10 hours"
Cons: "Choice of movies and TV programs"
Pros: "Although economy, it was pleasant and okay"
Cons: "I bought a business ticket but flew in economy from Tel Aviv to Vienna. I knew about it but the ticket cost was still high."
Pros: "They vere OK!"
Cons: "Food and drinks!"
Pros: "One hour delay after boarding due to loosing our “slot”"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We were delayed about 40 minutes due to air traffic. It appears they knew that, and we could have waited in the air conditioned terminal, rather than on the plane. And, I could have informed my Niece I would be arriving late, but I had no Wifi."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "The crew was good , funy , atentifly and kind."
Cons: "Was ok."
Pros: "It was all fine, a bit cramped, but otherwise fine"
Cons: "I had only 40 minutes to board my connecting flight to Vienna, had to run through two sets of security gates and one immigration and a long walk - at 64, I almost didnt make it, and was the last one to board huffing and puffing!"
Pros: "We could walk around as needed. No restrictions. Free wine with meals!"
Cons: "Staff not friendly or offering of assistance."
Pros: "Seat ok typical. Non busy flight lots of room"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "Arrival to the terminal was a breeze, and security was fast and efficient. What more can a traveler ask for?"
Cons: "The executive lounge was a bit crowded. But if that is my only complaint, that’s not too bad. A well designed airport!"
Cons: "One hour late for take off..."
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Pros: "I liked that the airplane was newer and comfortable. The crew and food was ok."
Cons: "There was no entertainment unless you paid for it. We already pay enough for our tickets to fly and entertainment should be included and not another added expense, especially for families that already pay so much for their flights!"
Pros: "This is always a pleasant airline to travel with."
Cons: "I felt like the airlines deliberately cheated me. I purchased a flight that was listed as "economy" , which means I am authorized one suitcase. When I got to checkout they said I had pay for the suitcase. Turns out my flight was economy 'light' flight and I had to go the Austrian airlines desk and pay euro 40 for my suitcase. Wish that would have been clear when I purchased the ticket. Also there is no clear info on what the cost is for your bag at what point in the check-in process."
Pros: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Cons: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "I could not reserve seats via Kayak, through whom the flight was booked. I paid extra for seat reservations, about $30 for a plain economy seats, to Austrian Airlines."
Pros: "Crew were polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Plane temperature was too hot, despite my repeated requests to the crew to lower the temp. No one on this flight opened a single blanket - was that the goal? It was too hot to even sleep."
Cons: "KAYAK or Austrian cancelled my ticket. KAYAK officials didn’t show any readiness to do anything about a ticket that was purchased and paid for. KAYAK system is still sending me questions how was my trip! Ironically? Additionally, I had to book another ticket to get close to my destination, book a midnight Taxi to another country."
Pros: "Highly efficient transfer (45 minutes between flights)"
Cons: "too short a time to transfer between flights as a very long distance between gates,"
Cons: "The business class was not really business class, I guess a 3 hour Business Class flight doesn’t have a seating configuration t Like the new A321. With all said Austrian Air is on the top of its field,"
Cons: "Firstly . The crew were rude ! They did not even response when were calling them from the seat . The only way to talk to them is to find them at the end of the plane ( where they been chating with each other ) Secondly . The amount of snacks was limited where’s in Turkish airlines it’s unlimited and you can choose different sandwiches whereas in Austrian airilines can offer biscuits and Cookies ;( Thirdly . We are living in 21 century and most transatlantic airlines have WiFi ! Where’s Austrian did not have it!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by three hours due to “technical problems“. We were never updated during the weight and when we were told that the flight was canceled everyone was told to go back to the ticketing area to pick up their luggage and to find other options. When we were almost halfway there we were told to turn around and that the flight in fact was not canceled. The food was mediocre at best in the service on the plane was in adequate. They were understaffed and staff to peer to be stressed and fatigued. The seats were small and cramped and not well padded in the economy section. We are going to be flying on Lufthansa in the spring and will hope that their services are better than what we experienced on Austrian air."
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."
Pros: "There was no in-flight entertainment system so I rejoiced to discover there was in-flight WiFi."
Cons: "But Wifi did not offer much, just some summary descriptions on the destination. I'd be enchanted to get via WiFi the well-known in-flight map showing which leg of your flight was accomplished."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing seating for a 12 hour flight was not comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was going to at"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment included so many mediocre films, with hardly a classic among them. I suppose those are cheaper, but I would think both Austrian and Lufthansa (they seemed to be using almost identical entertainment systems with almost identical offerings) would benefit from limiting their movie options much more towards movies with, say, above a 70% Rotten Tomatoes rating or above average box office sales. Even if they had fewer films, say 40 instead of 56, the ones they have would be more popular."
Pros: "Would have loved shorter transit time through Vienna, or Amman-Frankfurt-DTW (both ways)"
Cons: "Transit time through Vienna was particularly frustrating."
Pros: "6 hours delay, first deplaning due to mechanical failure, 2nd deplaning due to electrical storm. Missed my connection to Asia requiring total new bookings and expense. Never flying AA again."
Pros: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"
Pros: "got to my destination on time."
Cons: "uncomfortable chairs. zero entertainment for a non EU flight (over 3 hours), missed the meal, nothing was offered...."
Pros: "My waffle and coffee"
Cons: "Very small seats with hardly any legroom. Flight delayed 2 hours. Nasty attendant told me my bag was too big for overhead compartment. It wasn't."
Pros: "Was on partner airline Austrian Air. Very good service."
Cons: "At Vienna gate G31 it was difficult to hear announcements."
Pros: "Everything was great! The staff was friendly and really tried to make our experience the best it can be!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that in one of the bathrooms, the sink was clogged up a little bit."
Pros: "Food, entertainment."
Cons: "Aircraft was older 777 and lavatories weren't very clean. Upon landing in Vienna, my mobility walker (tagged to be brought up to me at jetway) was sent to my connecting flight to Sophia. The flight crew refused to intercept it and have it brought up to me at the aircraft. To make matters much, much worse, the flight crew eventually gave up and left, leaving me LOCKED inside the jetway for over 30 minutes after calling for a wheelchair. The replentishment crew refused to let me out of the locked jetway. Only after the wheelchair arrived was I let out of the locked jetway. I was taken to the Austrian Airlines service center where I lodged a formal complaint. Supervisor/Rene refused to upgrade my seat in any fashion to compensate for my distress. He did, however, arrange for me to given access to the VIP lounge and then taken to my VIE-SOF gate. Had I had a shorter layover, I would have missed my connecting flight."
Pros: ".The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "The flight attendants did a satisfactory job of distributing meals and snacks only if you were awake during their service round. I was resting on one occasion and missed the snack. I was total ignored when I asked for a serving. The boarding process was disorganized and the flight was delayed about an hour. Seat way too small for transatlantic. I weight 62kg and was sitting in a middle seat. Next time I'll have to get an upgrade."
Pros: "Flying on a direct flight was nice. The food was good. Ordinarily the snack lunch is not good but the sandwich was quite good."
Cons: "The boarding is best if done by rows but this was just every one trying to board at the same time so it has a more negative effect on passengers."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the attendents on Austrian engaging and charming crew"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "1st class should board last, it just makes mire sense for a lot of reasons. Also 8kg carry limit is rediculous and loosely enforced. We were clearly selected to check our bags. There were others with bags heavier and larger than ours that were permitted to stuff them in their overheads."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the entertainment was okay."
Cons: "It was impossible to make a seat reservation--impossible. When I asked Air Canada they said contact Austrian Airlines. When I asked them they said get in touch with United. Then I was told I could book a seat 24 hours in advance. When I got email I couldn't--said I had to do it at the gate. When I got to the gate I was told I had a seat in the middle of the plane. Not true I was at the back of the plane. Just awful"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight along with my girlfriend from beginning to end. The flight attendants were very courteous & the service was fast & the food & drink portions were generous."
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: "the crew"
Cons: "There was no space. Even though I wore compression socks and got up to walk frequently, my legs were bruised as I could not stretch out for any extended time. The seats are cramped and you are in one position. The flight was almost 9 hours and it was too much for me."
Cons: "There were no air vents, which made for a hot flight."
Pros: "From Toronto to Warsaw we flew with Air Belgium even though we paid a ticket for Polish Airlines and everything was horrible. We waited an hour without any explanation before boarding and another hour and half after boarding. The seats were very uncomfortable and there was no leg room. Flight from Warsaw to Belgrade was a lot better, however 2 out of my 3 luggages were lost. Crew on both flights were lovely."
Cons: "Food was almost cold.... I was in the back section of the planet...."
Pros: "The crew was great, but my seat wasn’t that comfortable."
Cons: "I would probably like them to be on time because I almost missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "Nothing. Arrived to Vilnius with 10 hours delay. Old airplane. Terrible food. Entertaiment system not working"
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming and helpful"
Cons: "Drinks serving could be more frequent. Food serving to have some options. Seats were somewhat not comfortable for tall people as they were lacking head support."
Pros: "Informative to the very minimum."
Cons: "NEED Leg room. Better air conditioning. It felt like a sardine box for 3 and a half hours."
Pros: "Again, everything went good."
Cons: "Delay for late."
Pros: "Everything went good."
Cons: "Movie or general didn't provide closed caption or subtitle for an English language."
Pros: "Quick problem solving with the delayed flight."
Cons: "Again, lost baggage is an incredible inconvenience."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class - wonderful!"
Cons: "Delightful service and food."
Pros: "Seat on aisle"
Cons: "Not being late for my second flight"
Pros: "I am fine with everything"
Cons: "Yes, I agrèe it could be"
Pros: "the crew was really amazing!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled without notice."
Pros: "I liked that all flights were on time"
Cons: "I ordered a special meal but for some reason, I was not on the list. The crew decided that I had not ordered one."
Pros: "I liked the quality of the food and seat comfort. Crew were nice and worked efficiently."
Cons: "The delay. And entertainment. Poor selection and unit got cut off each time there was a turbulence. My unit stopped working and when I checked the other seat unit it was working. Luckily none was sitting there."
Cons: "The flight was almost two hours delayed. If my connecting flight were closer, I would have missed it. Otherwise everything was good. The 787 Dreamliner was new and very comfortable."
Cons: "Too strict on baggage weight"
Pros: "The Dreamliner is new and shiny, and the bulkhead seat I happened to get had a lot of leg room."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment monitor was not working half the time, apparently because of some faulty wiring in the joint that connects the monitor to the seat. And guess what, when it does not work, the reading light and passenger assistance do not work either. Morale: only get bulkhead seats if you plan to sleep through most of the flight."
Pros: "Legroom, Prompt arrival."
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work well; I could not use it at all. That is very bad on a long flight."
Cons: "Having to arrive 6 hours later than scheduled"
Pros: "Very nice new Dreamlianer , very clear , nice staff friendly and cooperative, food quality good, entertainment list very good , nice flight for very reasonable price , much better then LH"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind and pleasant. Meal service and entertainment were more substantial than expected."
Cons: "Extreme delay supposedly as a result of a lightning strike to the plane. About 9 hours delay and a missed connection. The only compensation given for this dealy was a voucher for a 20 Euro meal at the airport restaurant of my choice. I know planes get hit by lightning on average of once a year, but it typically does not take 3 to 4 hours to inspect and confirm the safety of the plane's electrical system. But perhaps better safe than sorrry!"
Pros: "Normal in-flight service but nothing special."
Cons: "Small plane."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to warsaw by 2 hours, then delayed flight from Warsaw to Rzeszow by 7 hours due to no room on the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable, civilized"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Professional pilots. Variety of movies."
Cons: "Food is junk. Arrogant rude flight attendants. No desire to do their job."
Pros: "The food and entertainment"
Cons: "I did not like the terrible services!"
Cons: "They delayed the departure"
Cons: "Baggage policy was confusing end I ended up with baggage fees about the same cost as the flight"
Cons: "When boarding the crew wasn't inviting they were acting like they did not care at all about the people no smile no hi whatsoever. When I addressed one crew member he was not only occupied watching something in his phone but responded plain rudely to me. Its quite obvious that on the airplane the crew is working. Ukrainian airlines was offering the same trip cheaper but I decided to take LOT. Also I was surprised that I had to pay my luggage in my fly back. Next time I'll try Ukrainian airlines"
Pros: "Lots of movies, food was great and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Even though it was a long haul flight, alcohol needed to be purchased separately."
Pros: "The transatlantic plane was great."
Cons: "No alcohol 2/2 flights delayed"
Pros: "Most of the crew was very pleasant and helpful. Food was decent, but much better on the return trip out of Poland. Thank YOU."
Cons: "The toilet lids need to be fixed so that they don't keep hitting you in the back. They do not stay up. Other passengers were talking about the same thing."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the food wasn't terrible"
Cons: "4 hours late with no explanation and terrible updates left us sitting at the gate the whole yimr"
Cons: "one of our seats did not work properly (3D) and the crew constantly had to manually adjust the seat. It never would go into a full reclining position. Food was good but they did not serve everything that was listed on the menu. My wife ordered the pancakes with berries for breakfast and they said they did not have any. After they told us they did not have this item, another passenger from Russia sitting in 3A started complaining and they miraculously found the pancakes for this passenger. this leaves a bad impression about the service and not what you expect when you buy a business class ticket."
Cons: "Lack of checked baggage just causes commotion during boarding when the airline finally realizes too many bags and offers free bag checkin... Don't get the bad habbits from us airlines..."
Pros: "I like everything food and the chaires very comfortable thanks"
Cons: "Nothing to complain Everithing is excellent easy flight Thankyou"
Pros: "The trip was on Boeing 787, good legroom, and decent seat recline, food was ok and the flight was on time given that most transatlantic LOT Polish Airlines flights are delayed."
Cons: "The aircraft (B787) was a bit run down. Some of the cabin crew were unprofessional, at at times rude to passengers. No wine/beer offered during the dinner service. They offer "gourmet" cafe on-board for purchase, but one has to go all the way back of the plane to make a purchase, the flight attendants refuse to bring it to the passenger, which I found to be strange."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable"
Pros: "I liked every thing the crew was exelent"
Cons: "Dislike to crowded"
Pros: "I liked that the food was better by comparison with food served on other airlines (part of Star Alliance)."
Cons: "I think it would be nice that staff /crew addresses the passenger in both Polish and English. Most of the time they used only Polish, did not try to ask in English at all.Of course, if I asked for something in English, they can understand and respond. Also, did you always charge for wine and beer? Otherwise, I appreciated it was not as expensive as on the airport or on other airlines."
Cons: "If food, including WATER, is not free but paid, it needs to be super clear on the order. If you want to add luggage, but can't do it through the web, and when you call you find that there's a discount if you do it more than 24 hours before, that's lame."
Cons: "Delayed a lot in Warsaw airport."
Cons: "Many people on this flight were bothered by the fact that their families were split up all over the airplane and no one could sit together. During boarding there were groups of people who had all been split up and were desperately trying to switch seats with others. I was traveling with a 15 year old, and even though she is not a small child it was very nerve wrecking to be seated 20 rows behind her, not being able to keep an eye on her (even more so because she gets car sick and has thrown up on airplanes before). I don't think I've ever flown where my group was not at least seated in pairs. This was very disappointing."
