Pros: "I liked almost everything. And according to me, it does not make a difference if we rate things good or excellent at a certain point in time. As long as it is good, it can be excellent. I mean including crew. People have good days and bad days. I am sure the crew can say the same about passengers."
Cons: "What could have been better is: - the email that the airline generates and senda to people a couple of days prior to flight directs you to a site where you are supposed to fill in the blanks. About Covid. The thing is that you cannot submit it unless you as a passenger fill out an Austrian address. The electronic form does not have the option to rule out staying in Austria and indicating that you are transiting in Vienna. I had to fill that form out (at the Address in Austria section) with sentences like “not applicable” “transitting” and also had to google the Vienna Airport address for the zip code so it could be submitted. The form forced me to fool the it. Not cool. Frustrating."
Cons: "Cannot ask for more"
Pros: "The crew was nice. The economy seating was sorta spacious, but then again, it was economy. I’m 6’2” and my knees didn’t hurt."
Cons: "It’s standard European airline. Don’t expect Cathay, Singapore or Emirates."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable. Crew was great."
Cons: "To arrive on time"
Cons: "Flight delayed for one hour which caused us to miss our train. We had the longest check-in queue in the world although we have already checked in online and had our boarding passes in advance. Snack on board was a poor piece of biscuits"
Pros: "Will never purchase tickets through kayak ever again"
Cons: "They couldn't find my name and I have to run around in the airport. I almost missed the flight, even though I was over 2 hours earlier."

Cons: "Cold during the flight"
Pros: "Good experience, service was good, and attendants were courteous"
Cons: "You sold wrong tickets to customers. I booked economy tickets but I got Econony lite ticket. Had to pay extra charges. You shouldn’t make money to sell lower class tickets as regular."
Pros: "Flight was on time and we arrived on time Service was good and the crew was courteous and friendly"
Cons: "long layover before my next flight to Chicago"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on the first day. I had to call to find out that I was rebooked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, easy flight, on time arrival"
Pros: "Both the Lufthansa crew and the well thought out layout of Frankfurt International made it a lot more comfortable to travel."
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Cons: "I had a weelchair and nobody assist me in Viene in Austria"
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!"
Pros: "I like everithing was great . Thank you ."
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Delayed at boarding Delayed inside plane No entertainment No room for my long legs - no option"
Cons: "THey denied me and I lost all tickets including back trips as well. Nobody helped me to change tickets, they just care about money and reselling my tickets to other passengers."

Pros: "The service was superb!"
Cons: "The flight was too short."
Cons: "Sweet or saulty 'Snack' is a joke"
Pros: "Everything OK"
Cons: "Arrived 5’ later, lost train"
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. Austrian flight attendants were quite grumpy on this flight."
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Pros: "Overall reasonable flight. Nothing to write home about"
Cons: "Breakfast was what I imagine prison food must be like. Rest of meals were fine"
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Check-in to Canada not possible when passengers have third country passport and Canadian residence card. A combination, although very common, proofed to difficult for AUA personnel. Because of check-in delays lousy seats and miserable overall experience."
Pros: "The direct flight' and the comfortable seat"
Pros: "The plane arrived at destination ahead of schedule."
Cons: "€40 for a single 12 kg checked bag--that could have been gate checked? Seems excessive to this traveler."
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: "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: "They lost my baggage and nobody cares.They charging good money for extra bags but they have only sorry for they mistake. If you plan your important trip to Europe please don't use this company,so you can avoid unpleasant experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour after boarding to wait for passengers from another flight. I understand waiting 10-15 mins but one hour was way too long."
Cons: "Give me some knee room. I'm only 5 10 - What happens to the tall people?"
Pros: "No unnecessary waiting. Excellent service!!!"
Pros: "Short flight and the crew was attentive and pleasant."

Pros: "Smooth and fast"
2 hours delay without explaining as why
Pros: "Crewwere polite and competent. Seats felt a little cramped."
Cons: "The flight was good, however I was not able to check in online due to British airways website issues. The entertainment touch screen is not working properly,needs some maintenance."
Pros: "Great Friendly Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Entertainment System Poor choice of films - Bad Sound System"
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "Should have the seat assignments opened in advance for international passengers, especially who paid for business class."
Cons: "The seats are too small no entertainment No fast track for business class"
Pros: "One of the crew used bad words toward one of the passenger ..!"
Pros: "Comfortable, good service and on time"
Cons: "Crew were super grouchy, and we sat on the runway for an hour, had to go back for more fuel. Pilots never updated us and crew were rude."
Pros: "Did not realize I purchased a “no checked bag” fare - and the $60 each way charge really pissed me off, along with the &48 charge to guarantee a window seat again, each way. The site was misleading, and I resent being peneluzed for trying to be efficient. A two week work trip needs to include a checked bag."
Cons: "For a new plane, seats are very cramped. If you drop an earpiece on the floor, you pull a muscle to retrieve it / or make. Everyone in your row stand up. Decent movies mean a box under the seat cuts into legroom. A cramped, miserable 7 hours for this 6’0 tall American. Staff was as helpful as they could be, but my knees still hurt."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "They never never never should have allowed those children on the plane. They knew it before take off and they looked the other way"
Pros: "everything worked fine"
Cons: "We couldn’t get on the flight. We arrived late because of an earlier flight but were at the ticket area before this flight even started boarding. Our boarding passes would not print at our departure location and I wasn’t able to check in online for it because it kept linking to the American Airlines website for checkin. We tried to print our boarding passes at the kiosks but it said we needed to seek assistance. We were misdirected to the ticketing/rebooking line which we sat in and watched the board change to boarding and later gate closing. There were only two agents at the desk helping the completely full queue. We were told that our reservation was apparently already changed to a later flight for some reason. Being delayed seven hours is a great way to start a honeymoon off."
Pros: "Pilot kept us informed of delay status - gross delay b/c of French air traffic strike."
Cons: "Ran out of food, slowest beverage serve ever experienced. NO staff greeting passengers who were very late and missing connections (about 3/4 of passengers) insane and grossly inefficient boarding system was mass chaos - boarded passenger in buses by priority leaving some buses 90% empty with large crowds waiting to board."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Length of flight was long but there's nothing that can be done about it."
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "Texting about lost bag, fast information"
Cons: "There not enough time for right connections if always delayed, bags are not at the destinatiion, no drinking water without ovepriced purchase on the plane from London to Prague,"
Pros: "Shorter flight--OK"
Pros: "New plane. Good leg room. Good service overall."
Pros: "Very nice and comfortable"
Pros: "exit row seating was very nice, good service and decent food."
Cons: "entertainment screens were small and did not work for the majority of the flight"
Pros: "Nice plane and nice staff"
Cons: "No free water or coffee? Absurd."
Pros: "Safe, comfort, reliable"
Cons: "Food was NOT good at all. Go with theBeef & Potatoes"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."
Pros: "Flight was great, processed quickly both sides. Cabin crew were lovely."
Cons: "Sorry I can’t give you feed back, because I missed flight due to my own fault!"
Pros: "Good seats, good attention to the kids prior boarding."
Cons: "Language with the personnel was a minus. An experienced flight attendant uttered "Jesus F..... Christ" - as a reaction to people getting up before seatbelt signs have been switched off seems fair, the wordage is unacceptable from an airline that ought to be a pillar of decency."
Pros: "787 is a great plane and was very comfortable. Even my 6'6" husband praised it. Cabin crew went above and beyond in all respects."
Cons: "First class, great experience thank you kayak . I will use the website again next time"
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"
Cons: "1) Tiny seats 2) Rude service in the airplane and rude customer service in the airport boot at British Airways 3) Lost my flight to JFK as the transfer took forever 4) Accommodation after the airline screwed up was little to nothing."
Cons: "While I prefer beef to be cooked rare to medium-rare (and mentioned this) on both legs the meat was well-done and dry. This is common to many airline steaks, and may be an unavoidable consequence of the limitations of preparing food on board. (Though I have had reasonably prepared meat dishes on certain AA flights). All dishes are highly under-seasoned, but a packet of salt and paper is provided, so this is not a curial concern."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Worse experience ever!!!!"
Pros: "Flight had a good landing."
Cons: "Last seat on the right side and it would not recline. I was ready to sleep on the flight but without even the slightest bit of recline in the seat it was not going to happen. No food No entertainment No comfort No sleep"
Cons: "Boarding the plane. I do not know why the airlines load the people who are at the front of the plane first. Load the people on the back of the plane first. That way, when you call the next section, the people in the back are not blocking people as they enter. An alternative is to call people in sections based on where they sit in a row. If you have window seat, you should be called first. Why? Because so many passengers who have aisle seats have to get up to let people with middle or window seats get in. So, they hold traffic up as people are trying to get to their seats. After window seat passengers get called, then call middle seat passengers, and last, call aisle seat passengers."
Pros: "The crew etc were all great as usual"
Cons: "On both flights there was limited or no options on sandwiches left and the yogurt in your brochure was available on neither of the flights."
Pros: "Boarding process and crew were efficient."
Cons: "Seats were super-cramped, could not lean back to anything approaching a comfortable level, food was very ordinary, and the entertainment choices extremely limited."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Attentive and amusing."
Cons: "I hate that the armrests don't raise up only halfway, so if you happen to luck out and have an empty seat next to you, you will can't lie down comfortably."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "We paid $85 each to have extra leg room - which were horrible seats near the toilet. Which became a gathering area and we were unable to sleep/watch movie in peace. Worst of all was the fact that someone was sick in the toilet (inside and out) the toilet was closed BUT no sign is placed on it so people continue to line up and wait..... unless I told them it was not in use.... this went on for 2 hours!!! A simple sigh on the door was all it needed."
Pros: "...you informed. We will send you an email every 10 minutes letting you know your flight will be delayed by 20minutes....then 50...then back to 20...then 70.....down again to 20...."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "It was an older plane and the video screens were damaged. Made for an extremely long flight."
Pros: "plane was punctual"
Cons: "extremely uncomfortable seats and hardly any space."
Pros: "Good entertainment options Made home it alive Lots of water"
Cons: "Flight was late taking off and had to run to make the connection flight to Calgary."
Pros: "Good service on the flight. Good movie selection. The flight wasn't filled so there was room to breathe."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for long time. No food provided for passengers who travelled all the way from phoenix."
Weather :0( 2-hour delay on the tarmac
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "None at this time."
Pros: "The crew was great and very helpful. They properly stowed a box of crab legs someone had on the flight that wouldn’t fit in the overhead."
Cons: "You gotta stop treating economy travelers like 2nd class citizens. The split level check-in at Newark is ridiculous with premium up top and easy to get to where there’s literally 2-3 customers. Versus economy where you need to take an elevator & then wait. no check on policy for economy is silly too"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3x then cancelled. Had to take another flight to another airport to get home"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Orderly, quick, ontime boarding"
Cons: "Not being able to bring a carryon."
Pros: "Short and sweet"
Cons: "Delayed due to ice"
Pros: "The crew (even at the gate) were great They pulled an extra plane for us to avoid an even longer delay"
Cons: "A 5 delay!!! The plane was COLD!!!"
Pros: "Nice flight. Easy check-in and boarding, friendly staff"
Pros: "Got home alive,"
Cons: "loaded on flight THEN told there wasn't a pilot. Pilot got to work and announced we need fuel. Sat on airplane for two hours when we could have stayed in the terminal. You have had since Dec 17, 1903 to know that an airplane will not fly without a pilot and without fuel."
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "Sinister manager at denver, inconsistently executed ski bag policies. we bought the extra legroom seats, only to find we were placed in separated middle seats at the back of the plane. When we spoke to a flight attendant about the mistake, she told us we could get off the plane and complain to the front desk...."
Pros: "I finally got home."
Cons: "Because of the delayed flight from Munich, I missed my connection to RDU. When I arrived at the gate minutes after they closed the door, they did nothing to help. The gate agent directed me toward the United help desk, which in turn did nothing. After telling me it was not their problem because the delay was Lufthansa's fault, they finally gave me a telephone number to call Lufthansa. That number, as it happened, was incorrect."
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism was excellent. Both legs of my trip went great!"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and crew was friendly on Christmas Day."
Cons: "Economy plus slimline seats are uncomfortable, thankfully the flight was only 1.5 hours. No beverage service due to turbulence."
Cons: "It was boiling hot on this flight."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and attentive, service was great."
Cons: "I was seated in the last row, by lavatory door. The plane smelled bad and I could hear a distressed dog barking below. Vinyl seats left my shirt sweaty."
Pros: "I was excited to hear about the private screening"
Cons: "The connection was horrible and the movie stopped every couple of minutes"
Pros: "Custodian found us blankets and water"
Cons: "Zero effort in San Francisco after my first flight was delayed leaving Seattle and arriving there late and missing my connection."
Cons: "This flight didn't happen. It was cancelled for "weather" hours before we were even to board. Because the cancellation was due to weather, the airline wasn't responsible for picking up the hotel to get on the first flight the next morning. When I finally got home, my bag wasn't even on the flight with me."
Pros: "I was returning from an international flight, and had carried my smallish rollerboard +1 personal bag all through (including outbound) with no problems. Just on the last leg, IAD to RDU, the gate agent forced me to check the bag, even though the flight was not full, and the bag could easily fit in the overhead bin. I was in Group 3."
Cons: "Forced to gate check rollerboard for no reason."
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "I checked in my free bags with with my united access in the check-in counter, no issues. I stand in the gate line for Premier access and the gate crew lady asked me to go and pay for a carry on bag in a very loud voice and asked me to get out of premier access line. When I asked her to take a look at my premier access status, she said stop yelling. Then another man in a suit walks in and first word out of his mouth is not an apology, but a threatening "Don't yell". I just kept walking away from this unqualified person lest it goes out of control. United needs to do a lot better. Just because these gate crew people feel stressed out, they should not take on innocent travelers. Instead of putting a customer under a defensive position, they need to learn to respect the customer. United is training their crew in a wrong way.."
Cons: "A gal that sat with me on the first flight had seat 15a on the flight to Raleigh, she gets very sick and needed the window seat....BUT. you folks are so screwed up at ticketing that you NEVER book families together. I've flow with you folks 20 years and its always been a hassle. She was asked to move to the back of the plane (seat 32) a middle seat...where she was sick the whole ride so you could do the "shuffle" of passengers....it's poor business practice. When I have a choice I fly SW now."
Cons: "The business class seats are worn and the entertainment options are very limited compared to Delta."
Pros: "Crew are nice and friendly"
Pros: "Captain was very friendly and took ownership of delay for United"
Cons: "Delays at newark due to President in area. Would rather of just been told of delay hours prior so I could have spent the extra time with my family. Apparently the delay was known about"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The delay after delay, the chaotic boarding"
Cons: "Checking my bag was lousy...lax attention from limited staff and poor attitude of one ticket agent. DC airport was kind of a mess. TSA was disorganized, technology not working, calls for help from TSA officials went unanswered. It seemed strange to me that the airport of our nation's capitol would be so unprofessional. I felt like I kept encountering very unhappy and not so customer-focused staff. Flight itself was fine."
Pros: "It got me to where I was going."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time, small snack was good"
Cons: "Very little space in seat"
Pros: "Honestly, nothing for this flight. Delayed, rude crew, seat assignment mess up, etc."
Cons: "No food in a previous 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight. Very uncomfortable plane! Asking to pay for entertainment Direct TV, are you kidding me??? Those tickets are not cheap and you can't provide entertainment? Charging for everything extra is outrageous. Crew was a bit rude. And the people at the counter at the gate -very rude and unhelpful. Flight delayed on Christmas night and no refund for all that time wasted without being with the family. I had seats together with my husband and then seats were removed, asked to see an agent when printed boarding pass and then got separate seats. You are a joke and do not respect the money we pay and prearranged seat assignments. United you are a terrible airline, please strive for better customer service. You charge a lot."
Cons: "My baggage was lost and after a long day that's the last thing you wanna hear....but someone delivered it to me 2 hours away first thing the next morning."
Cons: "I get that it's the weather but this whole experience has been hectic. I have been bounced around 3-4 different flights in the last 12 hours yet have boarded 0 to get to where I am going. Each one canceled then delayed then missed because of the delay and re-routed. It just seems like a free for all."
Pros: "Nice seats and lots of space"
Cons: "Rude crew on board"
Pros: "On time, happy and efficient crew."
Cons: "No food, but beverages offered, understandable due to the quick flight."
Pros: "Lots of room in the seats and for legs. Clean. Friendly staff."
Cons: "That I couldneed watch TV without paying for it. Such a short flight to pay 7.99."
Pros: "I was impressed with the fact that our crew initiated an alternate route so we could actually get to RDU when things had been pretty dicey. Excellent flying and landing under difficult circumstances."
Pros: "Flight was 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Fully booked plane"
Pros: "The seating is cramped."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this experience. Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline. He missed his flight. No one helped him."
Cons: "Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline to inform about language barrier. Gate changed. No one helped him.He missed his flight. was missed inform how he could be accommodate."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
Pros: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Pros: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
