Cons: "I loved it all!!"
Pros: "The food was very good! And the movies you could choose too."
Cons: "Boarding process was incredibly slow, which delayed our flight."
Pros: "It was such a short flight, no comment for this leg."
Cons: "No organized boarding system, the entire plane was told to get in line at the gate with the exception of business/first class and elderly or people traveling with children."
Cons: "At 11h30 of 14/9 we (HOANG MINH CHAU and NGUYEN SI THANH) were standing at the ticket counter in Vienna and we could not check in due to no payment yet for the ticket and so the reservation has been cancelled. Due to this reason we had have to buy new tickets at the airport ticketing counter. So please sort out your problem with the airline and get back to me. From my bank the payment has been done yet to you. We had have double pay for one trip."
Pros: "The boarding and exiting of the aircraft was smooth and organized. I really do prefer that passengers be strictly monitored when boarding the plane according to their seats. It really does make sense to board the plane from the rear forward. I realize airlines feel like they have to make their business class passengers feel special, but it really doesn't make sense for passengers to be climbing over one another."
Cons: "I left my entertainment at home in a mad rush to depart which is very unusual for me. As a result, I had to rely on Austrian Airlines' copyright licenses, and they were less than satisfactory. Fortunately, I'm flying back with Lufthansa, so I hope there will be more variety there. The lavatory at the back of the plane was filthy by the end of the flight. I don't understand why the flight attendants feel to good to clean the lavatories for their passengers. We are stuck on a flying can for 9-10 hours and deserve to have clean lavatories during that time. At one point, I was thirty and approached the back of the plane. When I entered the rear galley, the ladies looked at me like I was intruding. If self-service is not available for passengers, then flight attendants should be prepared to serve their customers."
Pros: "The service was fine, although I suggest that Austrian Airlines will consult with someone who joj is to train the staff to be more efficient."
Cons: "The food was bad."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants had an attitude problem, which put a wrench in my otherwise pleasant flight."

Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."
Pros: "New bedding is comfortable!"
Cons: "1. No toiletries were available for business class even on this flight. 2. There was no food choice especially if you prefer vegetarian. 3. Even if One presses a button to request for some water, no one comes to the seat; this habit of BA continues for the good part of the last decade. Reminded me why I stopped flying BA! 4. No wifi even in Business class! Someone in senior management of BA needs to fly SQ, Cathay, Qatar, Emirates and learn what can be improved. Most of these airlines have better service in economy than business on BA!"

Cons: "The attendants were not as helpful as I thought they should have been and actually were a bit unpleasant."
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "Couldn't get seat to go flat. Not the only seat with this problem. Seat too narrow in business. No place to put stuff conveniently. Kind of miserable on this A780. Or whatever the big plane is called."

Pros: "Ear phones for those of us who did not bring any. Having a meal and drink available and at no extra cost."
Cons: "Not knowing if I could get an extra drink after the food was served, would have been helpful. Snacks of chips, pretzels would be tasty. Offering more water or a larger container offered would help. Explaining how u have to get to the next terminal would help. Having to go to many shuttles is confusing."
Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people To bring us to the connecting flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."
