My dream is to have little bit more comfortable seating. Seats are too hard. My travel involved three flights so I could definitely feel it. Food on the plane is a another one. On the flight from Toronto to Vienna the potato salad could be completely skipped (not so good). Instead I would add some fruit or other salad. Brownie in a plastic wrapping was not so easy to open.,There were lots of seniors and I noticed that they struggle little bit. Otherwise crew was friendly. Thanks so much for all the hard work!
Seats way too small for a long flight .... food, just ok ... boarding somewhat disorganised.
The boarding at the Vienna airport was an absolute chaos; no rhyme or reason, no order just everyone shoving; I thought I was in some 3rd world country where the concept of organization and order has not reached 21st century. The web site is one of the worst, not intuitive or clear at all; it took me forever to book a seat and having to pay for it, another slap in the face. I traveled with Austrian air many times but this was just so frustrating and disappointing.
Pros: "One hour delay after boarding due to loosing our “slot”"
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: "They have Economy class seats on the business class. Uncomfortable."
Cons: "Huge delay... :("
Cons: "The crew kept the temperature in cabin at 26 or 28 degrees Celsius. Whole trip felt like being in the oven. I will NEVER EVER FLY AUSTRIAN AIRLINES AGAIN."
Pros: "The crews are very polite."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Couldn’t get on the flight due to two cancellations of prior connecting flights. Utterly, totally unacceptable - and no explanation of why."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive flight crew, nice entertainment options, food good for airline food."
Cons: "Never been more uncomfortable in a plane seat. I’m six feet tall and my knees hit the back of the seat in front of me. I would not fly this airline again for this reason."
Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
Cons: "We ended up needing to check a bag. It cost 40 Euros which seemed high. We were sent to another line to pay then back to check in. Then our flight was 45 minutes delayed leaving. Fortunately the pilot got us in to Zurich only 20 Mon late. Just typical "never know what's gonna happen"."
Pros: "Flight schedule, boarding management"
Cons: "No WI-FI service during my return flight, limited options for tv news programs."
Pros: "Timing flight people working very nice and hospitality"
Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Pros: "Efficient boarding from bus. Friendly crew. Offered soft drink and coffee as well as choice of 2 snacks. No entertainment as such a short flight. Clean, modern plane."
Cons: "I tried to reschedule due to a death in the family and due to the "small print" this was not possible. Then when I did travel, it turned out I didn't have the right for a piece luggage (again "small print"). I paid for the extra piece and I was double-charged (same amount withdrawn twice). Now I have opened a complained with Austrian and they haven't responded so far."
Pros: "clean airplane. staff friendly and helpful. good movie selection"
Cons: "austrian and lufthansa have the worst seats in the industry. good for seating for about 30 minutes ONLY. so tough that make the trip feel even longer. a charger is needed in economy (at least one every two seats). wifi has not made it to this long haul flight yet."
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: "There was plenty of space, and so I rven had a chance to catch some sleep on the transatlantic flight. But Uktimately, unless you are travelling in luxury, transatlantic flights are awful."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "smooth flight, friendly crew"
Pros: "Good service and on time."
Pros: "I would suggest to make up some how for my lost as I had other problems derived from missing my United Airlines but so far every body has been very understanding. For example selling me a new ticket at a special price or with some benefit - I WILL NEED TO FLY TO VIENNA AND KIEV AGAIN WITHIN 6 MONTHS - otherwise; I doubt I would ever buy a Austrian plane ticket again. I AM FLYING ON POLISH AIRLINES RIGHT NOW OCT 25TH."
Cons: "When I try to make the change of itinerary on Austrian Airlines on the selling web page, they told me to contact the Austrian Airlines, so I did. The Austrian Airlines lady who told me that I would just lose my tickets and that I could not even pay a penalty to avoid such thing, was very VERY RUDE!! As the Austrian Airlines did not offer me an option but losing my plane ticket,"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, generous and courteous."
Cons: "I can not afford first class tickets..."
Pros: "Left on time - arrived early"
Cons: "Cake was the same thing they served from Kosice to Vienna . There must be something better than that. It was a tad dry."
Pros: "The crew were very kind. The food was good."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very narrow and there is no entertainment."
Cons: "My father and I were seated in biz class but were unable to sleep because of a fan noise directly over our seats in Row 9. We complained to the attendant about it but she was unable to determine the cause. Many hours later, a different crew member identified the noise source and stopped it by simply flipping a switch. This disruptive noise could have easily been avoided but the ignorance of the crew member to whom we complained failed to solve it. By the time the second crew member identified the problem there was not enough time to sleep. This experience was extremely disappointing. We paid extra to fly business class so we could sleep, but this ridiculous crew error fouled our plans. We asked the crew to file a report about it and they did. Look into it. We expect a refund of the extra fare we paid, or else we will never fly Austrian Airlines again. I am an affluent person and I travel internationally 6 times per year. You would be smart not to anger me and lose my business."
Cons: "Boarding in Vienna was completely unorganized. Received zero instruction from crew on new boarding information."
Cons: "I specifically selected three seats for my Wife and two children ages 7 and 5. I did not fly back with them and at check in the three seats were confirmed on a boarding pass printed at their departure location. Upon checking in on the connecting flight in Vienna, the seat assignment had been completely disregarded and three seats located 10+ aisles apart were given to a family traveling together??????? This makes no sense and must be due to booking through a third party. Unacceptable and not worth the $40 per ticket savings."
Pros: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"
Cons: "economy class eats sold as business class !!! very poor and cheap strategy --"
Pros: "Attention during waiting time and inside cabin"
Pros: "Free wifi on the return flight"
Pros: "No unnecessary waiting. Excellent service!!!"
Pros: "It would be nice to see AUA learning from other airlines on how to board a plain. To date it is chaotic, unorganized, messy and unnecessarily unfriendly. Interestingly enough it compares well to the non-existing system for lining up at Skilifts in Austria: Use force to squeeze everybody around you or cheat your way in sidewise. Not exactly my cup of tea."
Pros: "The B-767 is far superior to the B-777 in comfort; it is not so horribly crowded."
Cons: "Austrian check-in at VIE was a disaster. None of the machines could read my passport; and when you entered the data by alternative methods it STILL required a machine to read the passport--which it exactly what they were unable to do. Thus, it was a circular Catch 22. I went through six different lady agents working my way through the system, until they finally took my bag and let me go. They themselves said it was new to them and they did not fully grasp how it worked and they did not know why it did not accept me. SOFTWARE PEOPLE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and quick"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Quick boarding and exit off the plane"
Cons: "No little foot rest , no blanket in the winter"
Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and fine. No problem with boarding etc"
Cons: "The seat comfort and closeness of the passengers is terrible. And makes for a stressful and painful flight."
Cons: "While boarding, the AC was off due to a mechanical issue. The plane was uncomfortably hot, but the pilot and flight attendants were appropriately apologetic. The issue was resolved once we took off."
Cons: "small planes, no screens, no enertaminet. the flight was delayed in like two hors, some of crew members became too nevous."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "First fight was canceled to Vienna diverted to Turkish air to flight into Turkey. In the US was diverted to Milwaukee for 2 hours after already being on a 12 hour flight. Then missing our landing time in Chicago by 5 hours."
All went smoothly and the service is extremely excellent 👍
I should've been inform it wasn't Lufthansa but United Airlines.
I paid over $1500 for the ticket. I requested a refund from Lufthansa, but all they could offer me in return was $100.
Flight was delayed, poor boarding, lack of information, food mediocre.
The lost my luggage for the second!! Our flights had delays that caused us a very stressful layover to catch our connecting flight, I still have not received any updates on my first luggage that was lost 11 days ago. And yesterday my second luggage wasn’t loaded on time . I have to stay in a hotel with literally NOTHING till they find my luggage. Your customer service was NOT helpful at all and it’s gotten worse over the years .
Our flight to Frankfurt arrived late, and the flight to Slovenia left early so we missed the connection. We waited for over 6 hours and still only have a slight chance of making the flight the next day at 9am because we have standby tickets.
Pros: "I missed my flight."
Cons: "Helped me get a different flight. I got zero help getting another flight. Or any credit."
Pros: "The leg room in economy class was average. Not too cramped. There were good selection of entertainment options to watch/listen."
Cons: "The care and friendliness of the staff needs improvement. The quality of the food was poor. Additionally the boarding process needs to be better organized. Property sequence and queues need to be maintained and followed through."
Pros: "A340-600 is a wonderful plane, but economy is too cramped. The stewards do their job of feeding the "cattle", which lacks any personal service."
Cons: "The terminal updates of terminal and gate notifications were wrong! If we had followed your email and gone to T3, we could have missed our flight and be worn out from changing terminals."
Pros: "Everything was really good. Crew was helpful and provided excellent customer service. Food provided was good."
Cons: "The only thing that would have been better was cooler air in the cabin. I got very hot on both my flights to and from Frankfurt."
Cons: "The cancelled the flight and I end up having to change all the routing of my trip back to the US. So instead of 15 hour trip to the US, and end up having a 24 hour trip!!"
Pros: "Even though it was economy class, I was able to sleep because it was very comfortable."
Cons: "Not sure, I slept the whole flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Weird plane noises (typical of older Airbus planes)"
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "I wasn't aware beforehand that I could request a dairy free meal."
Pros: "Everything. Lufthansa is still the best."
Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
Pros: "Ended up flying out of London Heathrow, not Munich do to the cancelled Lufthansa flights. Very stressful and exhausting but did get back the same day as scheduled."
Cons: "The list of movies was poor"
Cons: "Food wasn't the best but did honor my special diet request."
Cons: "Pathetic food, and really rude crew by the standards of an international flight."
Cons: "seats were tiny and boarding was a disaster. Overhead luggage space was tiny and I only had a 15" laptop bag.."
Pros: "Everything was on time; boarding was very fast and smooth; flight attendance very friendly and resolute. I have food 4 stars because I didn't try it."
Pros: "Professionalism of the crew"
Cons: "tight sits"
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about my flight"
Cons: "The flight was excellent. Crew attentive and pleasant, good amenities--decent meals (special diet preferences observed on 2nd of two flights, but not first). Frequent offers of beverages and water throughout the flight from Munich to EWR, hot towels. Nice! I was not able to choose my seats until check-in, 24 hours before flight time. Of course if I wanted to pay extra (would have amounted to $60 for two flights for each passenger) I could have. Representatives at check in in Athens, were indifferent and not very pleasant."
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pros: "The cameras on the outside of the plan are fantastic!"
Pros: "Attendants were impressive. kind and so willing to serve."
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible. Those movies were not the best selection but the poorest selection as the cheapest probably."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled , for tecnical reason, we got very late flight instead- 12 hours delayed. We didn't get compensated for tall the in convenience"
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time Crew worked hard"
Cons: "Main issue: It was extremely cold in the plane the entire flight! Minor issue: entertainment computer did not work"
Pros: "the seats are comfortable, food is good and service is better than most"
Cons: "That it took a while to get on plane because of security but thats how it goes"
Cons: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."
Pros: "Brand new plane, pleasant attentive staff. Delayed leaving but most of time made up. Since plane was new everything was clean and worked well *including audio, good movie selection too."
Pros: "Entertainment food and friendly crew! Alles gut!!!"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "We often fly on Lufthansa and highly recommend it!"
Cons: "There was no movie..."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Pros: "the food was good,the crew was effective"
Cons: "the sits can be more comfortable"
Pros: "Crew were delightful, kind and very helpful. Food was delicious and plentiful! For a small person, even a bit too much. Watched a movie I'd been wanting to see."
Cons: "Flight was regrettably, unavoidably delayed due to weather and another repair problem. Couldn't get comfortable to sleep and babies wailing."
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism was impressive."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was uncomfortanly warm. the Airbus planes do not have individual air jets at each seat which is a desirable feature. Therefore, the environment felt stuffy. It would also have been nice to have refills on coffe and hot tea, however, no one checked back with us after round one. The bathroom floor should also have been cleaned more frequently."
Pros: "Dinner was good fairly interesting and wholesome. I appreciated having real silverware, albeit only 3/4 of normal size. But for an 8:35 flight, most people would have already eaten. In contrast, 'breakfast' was a muffin, small cup of sliced fruit, and a granola bar. For a flight leaving at 8:30 pm and arriving at 10 AM, I would think breakfast, not dinner, would get the emphasis. Did get some free wine with dinner."
Cons: "$35 bucks per flight leg to reserve your seat seems rude and harsh. THey don't tell you til AFTER you book the flight that seat selection is extra - spendy extra... Rude."
Pros: "New airplane A380-800. Staff was nice but no nonsense. Entertainment had good selections, although interface was a bit clunky and slow to respond."
Cons: "Almost no legroom to speak of so very cramped for a long flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time"
Cons: "Too cold in plane, announcements too loud"
Pros: "Very good staff and service"
Pros: "Everything was good, on time and without problems"
Cons: "Chairs might have been more comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work for many passengers, and had to be continually reset, and sometimes still did not work. When it did aorkX it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Also, the USB and electrical outlets near the seats did not work and power devices"

I would never book Etihad ever again.

Pros: "Quick boarding, minimum queues."
Cons: "Everything. What an absolute joke of an airline. 1) Flight attendant spilt a half a bottle of water on me and didn’t even apologise 2) Same tv shows and movies as 5 months ago. 3) no eye shades 4) entertainment turned off around 20-25 mins before landing and all headseats collected 5) staff"
Pros: "The crew were NOT helpful, The captain didn't inform us well about the delay"
Cons: "More communication with passengers, as well start the Entertainment screens early, NOT after take off ?? which is really strange ??"
Cons: "The food was of very poor quality and no alternatives. Went hungry the entire flight."
Pros: "They opened counter till before original traveling time by 30 minutes due to bad traffic conditions and delay of plane ."
Cons: "Delay if 1.5 hours to take off , no food was given to me during the 16 hours of flying, part of it I was sleeping, Help bottom was used several time with no response from crew ."

Pros: "Got an upgrade to business class"
Pros: "Good and crew were very goid"
Cons: "Seats were very hard and very cramped for such a long flight"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "We lost an iPad on the plane and I called and filled a o several times it absolutely no response. Very disappointing."
Cons: "No body from airline staff was at Lahore Airport to facilitate passengers.Lot of time wasted.One staff member was attending 2 rows of passengers in slow operational speed."
Pros: "Did not submit my meal choice in time but got the meal of my choice anyway."
Pros: "Cabin crew always lovely. Slightly more diverse food, butbagain, at some points not given a choice/selection. Good mix of new & classic movies. Had a spare seat next to me."
Cons: "Boarding was not announced, just kinda went for it? Not enough options for food, my meal was missing the dessert."
Pros: "The flight was very quiet so I was able to lie down and get a good rest - I know this isn’t possible on every flight but it made the long flight a lot more comfortable. All of the crew members were very friendly and attentive. The food was really good and tasty (lamb curry I think it was) - best plane food that I’ve ever had. Good choice of new movies too."
Pros: "Only I like the cabin crew. They were very nice and very friendly. This is the only thing I like about the Etihad Airways."
Cons: "More than 9 hour stay with no hotel & no food voucher before 16 hours flight . When I requested the customer service person he was very rude and with very bad attitude even the person was behind me he said the same thing. The food was very bad taste during the flight,coffee and tea had a very bad taste. Orange juice taste very bad too. No personal kit was given during the flight. Over all very bad experience. Please coney my comments to Etihad Airways."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable with good leg room. Food was excellent. Cabin crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "The entertainment screen looked aged. Very slow and not so good resolution. Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Full flight with small seats with little leg room, uncomfortable on a long flight and, I am very petite! Old, dated movies Mediocre food"
Pros: "I liked the wider seats and slightly more leg-room on the Abu Dhabi/London leg of the flight, the food was good and the staff pleasant."
Cons: "I was randomly picked for an "extra security check" at the Heathrow check-in in Abu Dhabi, which seemed ridiculous after going through the Johannesburg security and x-ray check as well as the Abu Dhabi one, and then having to switch on all of my electronic equipment and be swabbed for what I assume was drugs felt a bit over-the-top."
Pros: "Crew ppl was nice"
Cons: "Front ppl at the counter was absolutely horrible. I will never ever recommend any one to fly with Etihad airways.i travel for work and I never had a experience like this. Never in my life."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"

Cons: "1. Seats were really narrow. 2. Although my first plane from Seoul to Abu Dhabi was for 10 hours but only one meal served and it was omlette with sausage And at the beginning a small toast sandwich served. This indeed very strange because everytime I flied with Etihad you serve 2 meals one of them is meat or chicken with rice. I was really starving until the next glight because when we left Incheon airport it was 12.55am and most restaurants were closed. Please try to solve this issue"
Pros: "The leg room on the economy seats is good"
Cons: "The entertainment options are not enough"
Pros: "Improve your food standard"
Pros: "The Crew was responsive and attentive."
Cons: "The On Boarding process, a bit too many checks on the weight of Carry ons (7Kg)and Laptop Bag (5Kg), which was a big inconvenience and I never experienced with any other airlines and believe me I have flown on virtually every airline. The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."
Pros: "Check in in Frankfurt. Black lady. Extremely helpful. Went out of her way. This is the people you need in the front line."

Pros: "Seat relatively comfortable. Liked pillow that resembled neck pillow."
Cons: "Despite plane not being full, crew seemed to have difficulty serving meals."
Pros: "Service Seats Flight attendants"
Pros: "Everything was lovely."
Cons: "The flight is a 777 or 787. This is the flight has cramped up legroom in economy. It's a 17 hour flight and the aircraft is not comfortable at all in economy. The food is a hot or a miss. They have 3 items on the menu but chances are by the time they get to you they run out of the non veg options and you are stuck eating dal and pulav. Flight attendants on the flight were okay, not super helpful if you are traveling in economy"
