Austria has opened its borders to travelers arriving from the Schengen Area, or from Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, and the Vatican. However, travel from outside of the EEA remains restricted for travelers who are not nationals of an EU/Schengen/ country, and flights remain suspended from certain areas.
Austria has restricted all flights from Brazil, the UK and South Africa until March 7.
Austrian nationals, permanent residents, D-visa holders, and EEA nationals and their immediate family members may still enter Austria. Diplomats, humanitarian aid workers, people traveling on business, healthcare professionals, and members of emergency/rescue/ambulance crews may also enter the country, and travelers with an immediate connecting flight may transit through the country.
Travelers must present a completed Pre-Travel-Clearance upon arrival.

Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude.

We sat on the runway an hour because we were overweight and had to burn off fuel (which lead to me almost missing my connecting flight. they didn't ask before having someone sit next to me (when the seat was suppose to be free). was woken for every reason except food. check in was a nightmare and I was selected for extra checks (so I couldn't check in online). Terrible. Will never fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."

Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"

Pros: "I loved not having to change planes."

Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."

Pros: "Staff was very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Could not get a flight to tulsa. Moved to a delayed flight to OKC with rude gate staff and no inflight drink or food service."
Pros: "I used points to bump up this flight to first class and was very grateful for the delicious food and extra room. We received good service from attendants who checked on us often to bring extra drinks and answer questions. I see now that it's worth the extra money/points to fly first class. Thank you for making it a great experience!"
Cons: "I felt the flight attendant who first served me was a little brash. We were seated for what seemed like extra time before takeoff so I ordered a mimosa when asked if I wanted a drink. She seemed reluctant to give it to me so I wish she had explained that there wasn't much time or explained any hesitations that she was maybe trying to hide from her expressions. I was only 1/3rd finished with the drink when she practically grabbed it from my hands and said she had to take it away. A warning would have been nice, I could have finished it faster. Then during the flight when I ordered another one so I could actually enjoy it, she still seemed hesitant/judgmental and finally said "that will be the last champagne the plane has." It was an awkward experience that I didn't appreciate. However, this same attendant seemed more friendly throughout the flight and was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Pros: "Unable to Rate food & entertainment (night flight) I can, however, rate comfort since it was the worst crammed in seating ever!! They talk about the increase in violent behavior. Perhaps American Air could step up to the plate and offer a bit of comfort for hard working passengers. How? Easy to figure out!! Give us leg room for crying out loud."
Cons: "Crammed seating... No leg room.... Volunteered to check carry on... (Big mistake) had a longish wait for bags.."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Keep traveler's updated on delays."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"

Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but overall not bad."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Airbus seats comfortable but not the same on the Boeing 747"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."

Pros: "The fare was less than Southwest"
Cons: "I always regret it when I don't fly Southwest"
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "Kayak notified me of the delays before United. Crew was nice. Ramp agents worked hard to get everyone on board quickly"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour and 42 minutes. First delay notice too close to incoming aircraft arrival so you knew it wasn't an accurate adjusted departure time."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "so uncomfortable seating. united website wofirst offered us $200.00 each because flight was overbooked.we declined. united would not let us check in online due to having no bags. we had to go to airport desk who then sent us to kiosk. we used the kiosk and machine said we had to talk to an agent, who inturn had to see the see the size of our bags. (she was miserable). then she printed our a boarding pass without seat assignment. we then had to go to gate agent who told us we had to wait a couple of minutes. we returned to the gate agent who again said we had to wait .(she was miserable too!!) all the while, for 2 days, we thought of that poor man assaulted on the united flight as they forced him out of his seat and off the plane. was this going to happen to us??? we sat and watched many many crew members board, crew that did not work on the flight. finally we were given out boarding pass with a seat assignment . HATE UNITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"

My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."

Pros: "The Indianapolis airport"
Cons: "The plane is too small, I'm 6 foot 4 inches tall and there no leg room, my leg was raising the middle arm rest, I apologized to the guy next to me...he was cool about it. The plane does not absorb turbulence very well. That plane is to small for a flight that is a little over 2 hours"

Cons: "The pilot should speak louder in his announcements"
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "Delayed a lot"
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."

Felt like the economy cabin you find in the upstairs of a 747 or A380."
Pros: "newer, quieter jet"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating during the flight"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours, with not much explanation"
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"

Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Pros: "I was treated outstanding by United Aorlines throughout this entire trip."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."

Cons: "This is the only time I've flown that I can say I have no complaints !"

Cons: "I was told that despite weather delays I would definitely make my connection on time and to "stop wasting the agent's time" with my questions. Of course I missed it, spent Christmas night in the Houston airport, and nearly lost my job for missing work the next day. I would never fly United again."
Cons: "Lost my bag and didn't give me enough information on giving it back"
