Cons: "No TSA checkin at Newark."
Pros: "The space of the seat is wide. Nice chocolate."
Cons: "First, they announced that they need some passengers to voluntarily give up the booking in exchange for 280 refunds (a slightly higher rate which not worth to do it) and 1 stopover the fight to Rome which will arrive at 22.00 instead (our flight is 17.35). About 15 minutes before boarding time, they announced flight delaying. Around 17.45, they announced gate changing from B to A which located at opposite side of the the airport so all passengers run there because of everyone afraid that their booking might be canceled because no one agrees to give up. At both gates, many people try to jump in the queue which no staff comes in the manage the queue. During waiting on the board, the air condition seems to be closed, hard to breathe. Around 19.00, the plane took off the Zurich airport eventually, finish the 1.5 hours delay. The captain announced that it cause by the technical problem of the flight earlier but my thinking it cause from over-booking."
Pros: "Left on time. Quick flight."
Cons: "missed connection in Zurich because flight left one hour late, and connecting flight didn't wait the extra five minutes which would have allowed us to get on flight. Transfer desk was unable to get us to Bari same day although it was only noon; rebooked for 6:55am next day... Significant financial loss to us."
Pros: "There was too little space between rows. Sometimes it was too difficult to watch a movie because the screen was too close to my face."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 1 hour at least after overlay of 4 hours. I missed my flight from Vienna to Yerevan and the portion of my trip was detoured to Moscow and from there to Yerevan instead of 3 hours took me 8 hours. As a result of rushing and running in Vienna to catch my flight to Yerevan I feel and injured my hip, I would like a compensation , Please contact me at email@example.com or phone 703-609-8649"

Cons: "Having to pay for seat selection"
Cons: "The airline changed a seat reservation after I paid for it. The Swiss support staff told me on the phone they would call me back. They never called back. I called again and was told the seats are changed and I can’t do anything anymore. The return flight seats also disappeared from the reservation. I had also paid for it. The support staff when I called again put back the seats for my return flight. I tried to check in online. Not working. Tried at least 50 times. Not working. Called the support staff. They told me to call the check in support center. I called the check in support center at least 50 times where mi was told the staff are busy and could not answer the call. I called at 6:00am next day where I was told by the check in support staff that my ticket had an issue which they did not know exactly what was the issue but prevented me to do a check in. I drove more than 2 hours to the airport where finally I could check in but I was told that my return flight seats had disappeared again. They managed to put them back again. I hope this time it’s finally ok. The support staff on the phone told me I could get reimbursed for the seat reservation I had paid for for the on going flight. The Swiss staff at the airport told me there would be no refund. Swiss is terrible"
Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Pros: "We flew Miami to Zurich, then Zurich to Rome. The international leg was awesome. The intra-European flight was less impressive. We “self-boarded” which was new to us - and wasn’t explained. The seats were smaller and there was only the drop down screens for every 2-3 rows, but otherwise, for a less than 2 hr flight, it was fine."
Cons: "Boarding wasn’t fully explained for those of us who are not Swiss or German. I slept thru “lunch,” which apparently was a sandwich - but that’s more than many American airlines provide you on similar flights!"
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Pros: "Swiss Air is very nice, planes are clean, snacks on board were fantastic!"
Cons: "Why the ridiculous amount of money to check a small bag? For this reason, I would not fly Swiss Air. My fancy sandwich was not worth CHF 50."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Staff was not attentative. We were very misinformed on the seat upgrade we paid $100 for. And our liggsge was damaged and they had us walking all over ohare airport for no reason at all instead of addressing the issue at Swiss air."
Pros: "Nice plane, organized food and boarding."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Swiss is always a tad nicer than the alternatives"
Cons: "I could not obtain a refund."
Cons: "I didn't get on the flight because they lost my luggage and they refuse to give me a new ticket. I was back and forth on the phone with Swiss and still no good word"

Cons: "Lack of screen for watching movies."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "late departure, stressful to make the connection, had to check in hand luggage even though there was lots of space"
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."
Cons: "SWISS always turns on the air conditioning too high on intercontinental flights. It is HOT inside the cabins. The entertainment system is very outdated, small screen and old and used hand set. Claiming to be a premium airline is unfortunately very overstated if you are unlucky to catch the old business class planes. Only few have changed to the new versions (777s) - Make sure to catch those."
Cons: "Checking in we had a nasty representative, but other than that, all was well"
Pros: "Crew was great! Boarded quickly! Alot of movies to watch!"
Cons: "Small seats ,and temperature too hot"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Had to sleep in Zurich overnight. Airline covered the hotel and dinner bill though"
Cons: "Next morning the flight was delayed . Lost time in Rome and a night in Rone hotel"
Pros: "Beautiful new jumbo jet"
Cons: "Changed plane and seats so boarding was delayed"
Pros: "Short flight. Not much is expected. 3 stars for no rating, except comfort. Small seats/felt cramped. Not a huge deal since it's a short flight."
Cons: "No negatives or anything that caught me off guard."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible- poor selection and consols were super old Old planes and crowded isles No chance to select seats! Weight limit on carry on No perks for gold star alliance Free wine is not good quality so why bother with providing"
Pros: "Service-first class! The hosts did their best to keep me comfortable after my operation. My TV system did not work at all and there was no sound. This was not addressed. The directions were not clear on the control machine. It did not say to keep pressing start after each activity The flight was ice cold during the entire journey. I was told that if the pilot put on a little heat the others would complain."
Cons: "Food was the worst I've had on a European flight. I ordered special food that had n0 preservatives because of my stomach ailment. I got Molly's special pre packed horrible food all through the flight filled with preservatives and prepackaged. I therefore didn't eat anything. They kept giving me kosher food on top of it . That was worse. I did not order kosher food! So on my entire flight, I ate nothing. The hostess finally found a left over but it was horrible as well. A tiny salad with plain head lettuce, not like the Lufthasa food. This continued into breakfast. Molly food was unhealthy and inedible. I ate one piece of packaged cheese for the entire journey."
Pros: "All what you served !"
Cons: "Everything is okey !"
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "The counter could not find my reservation a d they said because i booked online i had to go to another counter and then back to check in. It was pretty stressful"
Pros: "The seats are not as luxurious as the international. They do not recline that much and are not pods. No surprise as that is similar to the US. But it was only a 3 hour flight so was fine. Food was same as first trip, solid.. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours. They did not communicate at all the reason. Takeoff was supposed to be 8.30pm, didn’t take off until 11pm. Sat on the tarmac for over an hour and the crew or pilot did not say a word. The beverage service again was lacking compared to other international business class flights I’ve taken."
Pros: "Seat space continued to be better than BA. Nice surprise to get an evening meal on the last leg to Rome. I actually was able to sleep a bit on this smaller airplane as well. Crew went out of its way to help people board and load bags overhead. They seemed very attentive, and tried to provide extra drink options even."
Cons: "Boarding process at IST was a challenge. We left from a remote gate, and the agent didn't seem interested in the boarding process. I heard no announcements, maybe because it didn't matter as everyone was crowding the door 15 minutes before boarding began. The agent seemed perturbed, but I've seen it on almost every Italian bound flight. No one wants to wait. It is actually a bit amusing to watch the struggle between boarding policies and a group of people who seem determined to ignore them. The buses were also pretty well packed. More so in Rome than IST. Not much organization in loading at either place. After all the passport control they left us to walk outside to wait for the bus. Maybe you can tell I'm not a fan of remote gates."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process -- did not matter what Group you were in. Also instructions at gate were not said clearly in English nor were they repeated."
Pros: "Airplane crew was amazingly friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The customer service in Istanbul airport (for Turkish Airlines) did not speak or understand English at all. She could not give us any helpful information of our flight"

Pros: "Lots of in flight entertainment options. Good meals. Very nice and helpful attendants."
Pros: "Staff at Istanbul Airport kindly re-opened the gate for late passengers due to unexpected delays of preceding Turkish Airlines flights. Otherwise, I must have missed the flight from Istanbul to Rome."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to be friendly ."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "food, entertainment"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "The food on flight."
Cons: "Ground staff in Istanbul were very rude! Staff would not respond to lights turned on on the flight as well, for any assistance."
Pros: "Nothing.... except the movies"
Cons: "Everything....food and service. The airlines also Lost our bags...and till today cannot trace or find it. Went on a cruise with 2 pairs of clothes. How does an airline give a bag tag to a passenger without putting it in the bag???? 12 days and no bags.... terrible call center service too no help at all."
Pros: "Great comfort and speedy service of beverage and breakfast"
Cons: "They didn't pick up the dishes fast"
Pros: "Like my trip to Istanbul, I had no complaints. It was easy to make my transition to this flight and boarding was fine and once again the crew were friendly and welcoming. The short 2 1/2 hour flight went well."

Pros: "I really like the food and the crew members. they all were very kind and nice to us."
Pros: "Plane was nice. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The plane was blazing hot. The in flight entertainment system was down for half the flight."
Cons: "First let me tell you that when I booked a flight to Istanbul from Brussels, I booked, so I thought, the airport called Istanbul Ataturk with the initials of IST. What I got was SAW after I paid for a booking that said IST. Sabina Gokcen is one hour away further on the Asian side of Turkey. I did not want this airport! There was nothing I could do about this but bite the bullet & accept what I got since I was not allowed to have any corrections made after paying for this ticket. I am highly disappointed with Kayak. The first time you have disappointed me greatly!"
Cons: "We boarded on time but the flight didn't leave for another 45 minutes or so. This made me miss my next flight when I landed in Instanbul. I think they might have been doing extra checks on the plane so it's fine. Even though I missed my flight and it was out of my control, I was able get another flight within 5 hours and free of charge!"
Pros: "Service and food were very good, so happy to be fed and watered even though it was a short flight, really pleasant surprise."
Cons: "The wait to go through security when we got to Rome, but I dont think the airline was the cause of that."
Pros: "Flights attendants very nice, offered full meal if hungry"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by one hour"
Pros: "Entertainment (movies) always helpful to pass the time."

Cons: "Was late taking off"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "They gave us a meal on a 2.5 hour flight and we were very surprised!"
Cons: "They boarded late and you had to take a shuttle to the plan. We drove to the plane and waited for 15 minutes in the cramped shuttle while they were putting another staircase to the plane and finishing prepping it. We left a half an hour late and the flight was already at 10pm. It was a pretty terrible experience! And the section of the Istanbul airport we were in was pretty dirty. Also the movie they played had two language options but no English which was disappointing."
Cons: "Did not have as the flight to istanbul was cancelled and moved to alitalia"
Pros: "The food and drinks were excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment option was restricted to one movie for everyone on the flight. I wasn't interested in the movie. This flight was not equipped with the entertainment suite attached to the chair like the previous flight."
Pros: "Continued the great service"
Cons: "I would like a little more leg room"
Pros: "Nice attendants"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "The food!"
Cons: "Gate agents attitude and unwillingness to answer simple questions."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Food not what expected."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and was not helpful at all."
Cons: "In addition to long delay before the aircraft was finally parked on the tarmac, passengers had to wait for more than 40 minutes before the checked bags were delivered. There was nobody from the ground crew to tell us the reason for the delay as passengers were just wondering about waiting for their luggage. This airline needs to know how to treat their passengers well."
Pros: "The Agent at the Lufthansa baggage location services was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight from Copenhagen to Brussels was delayed long enough that I barely made my connecting flight to Frankfurt. However, my luggage did not. I hope it will arrive today."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive."
Pros: "The airline staff was great. Everyone really helpful."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "You take a bus to reach the plane and the seats are uncomfortable without any entertainment systems. Thankfully the flight was only 1.5 hours."
Pros: "We struggled to get the system to add our bags. Never got it to work and had to pay at check-in. It was even worse coming back! When bad weather caused delays and we missed our connecting flight from Frankfurt to Istanbul they put us on Turkish Airlines which was fabulous!!"
Cons: "Lufhtansa is slipping. They are acting like a budget airline when the expectation is for a full service airline. The online check-in would not let us add bags even though we tried for 3 hours. Not impressed with this."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, and service was fast. The snack was a chicken and carrot sandwich. It was good."
Cons: "The boarding was delayed twice and no explanation was given by the staff. We arrived 1 hour late."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly; more so on this flight than the last flight. I booked seats for the emergency exit knowing it gives more leg room."
Cons: "My baggage was not on the carrousel that was listed on the display, it took a long time to get my bag and it caused me to be late to check into my lodging."
Pros: "Nice plane, free checked bag, and a snack,"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late as the copilot was late, middle row seat (as I refused to pay the seat choice charge, (and it was only a one hour flight.)"

Pros: "It was overall a great flying experience."
Cons: "One of my connections was way too short. I almost missed my flight. I had to run!"
Pros: "Boarding was automated gates was easy."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Frankfort airport is a nightmare. They have loooooooong gateways, so when I Finally got through security FOR THE THIRD TIME, it’s a 10 minute, speed-walk to the gate. Again, a flight delay was the only thing that made the connection possible. I made it to the gate with 3 minutes to spare, so no time for the bathroom, no time to get lunch or even a bottle of water, no time period. And at the end of it all, my bag is lost."
Pros: "There's nothing much that's positive to say about this leg of our journey."
Cons: "Not only was the flight delayed, but there was confusion at the gate for boarding of even first or business class. We had to carry our luggage down 2 flights of stairs to get on a bus, which then transported us a very long ways away on the tarmac. Then it was an older model plane and the engine noise, even though we were up front, was extremely loud! It was somewhat worrisome. The food was terrible and by the end of the 90 minute flight our rears were sore from the poor seat cushioning. Not a good experience at all. All of this was after a terrible experience and delay just trying to connect flights within the German airport and the security delays that probably would have made us lose our flight if it wasn't delayed. There needs to be a better system if you are not staying in Germany but just connecting flights from the same airline!"
Pros: "The service to clients number one. I like"
Pros: "Served sandwiches even though 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Slow and unorganized boarding. Crew was not outwardly friendly."

Pros: "The crew was great, the food wasn't bad and the seat was comfortable and I am very tall"
Pros: "I like that they doesn't take so much time for boarding"
Cons: "A cookie would be better than a Corny in short flight"
Cons: "Delay for one hour"
Cons: "The flight was about 45 minutes delayed but it was okay with me since I had connection flight and I had a long connecting time."
Pros: "That the plane brought me safely to San Diego"
Cons: "Paid entertainment on a 12 hour flight"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Decent flight. Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "We booked these flights expecting Lufthansa. Little disappointed to learn they were Brussels airlines. Inflight entertainment options and meal options don't seem to be as good. Flight crew was pleasant and fine. After learning it was Brussels airlines I went through their check-in process for families and requested kid-friendly meals, but nothing came of it. Slightly disappointed."
Pros: "The crew. They made an uncomfortable flight acceptable."
Cons: "Boarding confusing and flight experience poor. The crew was the only nice part. The rest, not worth the money."
Pros: "USB at every seat"
Cons: "The boarding gate was changed three times. I fell asleep at one of the gates. Luckily I woke up and realized the second change in time to still make it there."

Pros: "the service,order, attention, human quality, punctuality. all in general."
Pros: "Food, drink and entertainment are very good."
Cons: "Did not care if I made my connecting flight or help me to understand if I could make it, seats are terribly overbooked and crammed. Many people visibly aggravated and mobility compromised due to seats,"
Cons: "Too much sugary bread as nourishment."
Cons: "Our flight from SFO to Frankfurt was cancelled and we were re-booked on a very bad itinerary."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Small leg space"
Pros: "The chairs were the comfiest I've ever flown in!! Amazing"
Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."
Cons: "Lost my Baggage for 2 days."
Pros: "I like it , it was good"
Cons: "All was nice.Thanks. The Flight was good, only Some Turbulances , But is ok."
Pros: "In terms of things I liked flying with UA998 from Brussels to EWR: The boarding staff at Brussels airport was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. Boarding procedure was smooth even with the extra security screening at the gate."
Cons: "It was quickly clear to me that the passengers where simply an inconvenience to some of the crew on UA998. As an example I fell asleep during take off and woke up in the middle of the meal service. The cart was only a couple of rows behind me in the half-ful Economy Plus section so I got up and tried to get the attention of the staff. The lady turned around and confirmed that "I had woken up" with a sigh, as is not only was it inconvenient to her that I was a sleep, now I had the nerves to actually ask for a meal. She presented me with the options of pasta and chicken and I politely asked what they where served with. She straight out said that "she really did not know that" and asked me to make a choice. I wont get into any other examples, the machine was half full at best and there was no stress, so frustrating to be treated like you are an inconvenience to the USA based staff who clearly just wanted to be left alone. The entertainment system barely worked, the touch monitor was very hard to operate - the pressure sensitive functionality was not working properly but I managed to get to my movie and avoid the Chinese subtitles in the third try. I fly United because it's part of Star Alliance, but otherwise I would try and avoid at all cost."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Cons: "My connecting flight to Rome wasn't listed on any monitors, and four people couldn't find Terminal A on the map. Fortunately I found some fellow Americans who also couldn't find Terminal A , lower numbered gates, from our current Z gate. We went to the right, following most disembarked passengers and signs for some A gates....a mess! In the end, we had to go all the way back, past our original gate to a Customs area where they just stamped our passports and onward to our gates. It seemed like the signs only helped if you were going in the correct direction to begin with. Even my German friend said how bad that airport is for directions!"
Cons: "The delay and the lack of movies. Seats are very small. I was sitting near a larger passenger and it was very tight. We had over two hours delay for mechanical problems with the plane."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Melanie/ticketing was superior in securing seats on a different departure. She endured many nervous travelers. The new itinerary matched our original time of arrival at ORD within 2 hours. :)"
Cons: "The free check-in of our carry on bags only dissapointed us when not arriving at ORD. We expect them to be delivered soon."
Cons: "When in transit in Athens to a domestic flight they now require you to go through security again...bad news if you bought a bottle if something in your departure airport"
Pros: "Price, availability of their ticket and they deliver a good product and the flight was on time. Excellent crew"

Cons: "Boarding announcements could have been clearer and less rushed. They were difficult to understand."
Pros: "Good space between seats."
Cons: "Horrible food"
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Pros: "The space for the legs"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Perhaps Greek is different from English but I felt the flight attendants ranged from being gentle in their response to being loud and scolding at least in what it soundes to me as a nonGreek speaking person."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly. Got breakfast too."
Cons: "Chaos in lines to get bus to plane. No organization at all. Just push & shove!!"

Pros: "I liked the service once on board. I liked that they had a separate ‘co bus’ to assist those passengers that had a connecting flight to get there quicker. There was candies offered as soon as we boarded them drinks and a Greek breakfast. The flight attendants were efficient."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour and 30 minutes late! There was confusion as to which gate to go to for the flight once it was called. They did not call passengers by sections so everyone just crowded the gate waiting to board. It was a bit chaotic and overwhelming for staff and passengers. There was no entertainment and there was no legroom and I am 5’7” so I was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything think was good! The pilot too strong"
Cons: "The agent at check in refused to even consider a business class upgrade, said I had to do that 48 hours in advance. Seems like a stupid policy to me, unless she was just flat out lying to me."
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "We paid 70 Euro in the airport for a small suitcase. we felt robbed because we had no informations about charges of suitcases. If we knew about this we would not carry with us any suitcase. The seats were very tight and no comfortable. No entertainment at all."
Pros: "Seats. Food"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "I was charged for the bags. I didn't know that I was spouse to pay for the bags since the itinerary doesn't show clearly what type of ticket I have!!"
Cons: "One thing that sticks out the most for me is how rude the airport crew are. A lot of people (including me, at first) were confused about the gate. One knows the gate isn’t always what it says on the boarding pass. Especially if printed from a different airport. Anyway, not knowing that the gate won’t show on the screens until about an hour before departure time, we were asking a lot of the ground staff about which gate etc. They were very rude and dismissive."
Cons: "The fact that my flight was cancelled minutes before boarding and we had to find another flight which makes us 6 hours late at our final destination and we had to forfeit our plans for the afternoon."
Pros: "The service and the team are very good, and the flights was so good too."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "The system cancelled my seat selection for the flight together with the check in itself. I had a very hard time boarding"
Pros: "We were given a meal"
Cons: "The meal wasn't very good"
Pros: "As above, for this 2d leg of our trip on Aegean, we gave Aegean an overall 5 because of the excellent accommodations they made for my wife who is handicapped. They went out of their way to make sure she got wheelchair assistance, and lift assistance up to the airplane, and this time,help from the airplane to the train station once we reached Rome."
Cons: "Food was some kind of basic dough filled with something I couldn't recognize."
Pros: "Cada vez que viajo en AEGEANS, revibo un buen servicio... Tuve un problema con pequeños líquidos en carry on, y regresando al checking, me ayudaron , sin pagar extra y recibieron mi maleta de mano gratis y no sólo eso...me la chequear on como FRAGIL... El desayuno fue excelente...SPINACH PIE, YOGURT, JUICE..DRINKS..a comparación con el vuelo en otra aerolínea de una amiga...sólo crackers and drink.. GRACIAS AEGEANS AIRLINES. .!!"
Cons: "Buuu...no reparten más los riquísimos caramelos de Grecia.. OUZO CANDY'S. ..!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean airplane"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The service in overall was good. Since this is consider to be a low cost fare, my expectation were not high."
Cons: "My Luggage did not arrive. Since I have been in a motorcycle tour, I had expensive and valuable accessories and I also bought new things. For almost 48 hours, I have been very worried that I will need to go through an expensive law suite. The whole issue was cause because of overbooking. I was asked to be on a waiting list with my luggage. When I was boarding I specifically asked the local crew whether my luggage is on board as well and I was answered definitely "YES"."
Pros: "Just great"
Pros: "The attitude of the staff was awesome. They give you a piece of candy when you sit down. Flight was on time. They actually appreciate your business. Highly recommend. The complete opposite of Norwegian Air"
Pros: "Check in was easy. Plane seemed well kept inside. Attendants nice."
Cons: "Hot! Little to no AC. Flight delayed an hour because first plane had AC problems."
Pros: "Boarding wasn't the most efficient, but when is it ever? I had never flown with Aegean but had to take two flights with them between Munich and Rome. Economy seating was very comfortable, the aircraft were attractive and immaculate, the crews were lovely and quick, and the food on both flights was shockingly good."
Cons: "My flights were short, but it would have been nice to have a movie on thr screens distributed throughout the plane."
Pros: "great service. Nice people"
Pros: "Snack served although it was a short flight , smiling and corteous flight crew ."
Cons: "Boarding process out of control after business and special need people went in . They need to have rules or enforce them if they do. Space between seat rows is tight , okay for short flights less than 2 hrs."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was reasonable smooth."
Cons: "Flight was full and most people hast to check in their carrying suitcases. Food was decent, especially the honey yogurt."
Pros: "Checking was managed efficiently and courtrously"
Cons: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "The ticket didnt specify the type of economy class so we had to pay for extra baggage"
Pros: "Amazing food!!! All free! Amazing food and amazing wine for free! I love Aegean they are the best best best."
Pros: "Very quick ...very nice the airport needs better signage ..not under your control I know but would help"
Cons: "The staff at the counter snd in the booth were great"
Cons: "Out of the control of Aegean the airport in Athens needs a lot more structure and organization. At times I thought I was to miss my flight because the amount of people."
Cons: "Had to pay for checking one bag, seats were a little unconfortable"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "I didn'the know about their baggage policy, and had to change my ticket. It took three trips to the baggage dropout area because I was given incomplete information on the first two visits. Fortunately, I had enough time to make the required change."
Pros: "Short and sweet"
Pros: "Women flight attendants were classic Greek Beauties, and did a good job too. They should be models not airline workers."
Cons: "I got 178 emails from kayak.com alerting me to over a dozen gate changes when the gate never changed. Why so many?"
Pros: "The raw was empty and I could sleep whole 10 hours"
Cons: "Choice of movies and TV programs"
Pros: "The crew was kind, the flight was on time and alll in all was just as expected."
Pros: "Amazing flight , crew excellent , good food. Definitely I will travel again with Austrian Airlines"
Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped"
Pros: "Good flight , bad flight delay and luggage."
Cons: "To be on time"
Cons: "They lost our bags, twice! We had 4 pieces of luggage that were checked together. They flew out of the same airport we did. They lost 3 out of the 4 bags, but assured me all 3 were on the very next flight. The next flight came in but only 2 more had been put on that flight. Still waiting on 4th..."
Cons: "Short flight but not quite comfortable seats."
Cons: "Complete experience and issue, resolution"
Pros: "Crew was positively and smiling."
Cons: "Flight was 44 min late. Could have been on time"
Cons: "30min late arrival. Still was ok."
Pros: "It was better with the earache, plane felt cleaner, the crew was more friendly and attentive. Didn't feel as dark as the first flight."
Cons: "The Star Alliance flights aren't that cheap. Comparable price between Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS and Austrian. Lufthansa gives you food, and has friendly service. SAS gives you coffee and tea. On Austrian and Swiss I didn't get anything. For same price range and same alliance, that is a point I keep in mind. Now I mainly try to get onto Lufthansa flights (or Turkish Airlines which is my favorite). Even on Aegean, I got better food, and the magazine was better, plus there were some monitors to track the flight. Austrian feels cheaper than the others. That is the main point I didn't like."
Pros: "The attendants on Austrian air are all very nice and helpful. You can make any request of them or ask any question and they are happy to help. Great customer service. Arrived on time. Also, very good entertainment options!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable on Austrian air. The only way I would fly them again would be if I had extra money for the exit rows with more leg room. Food isn't great, but no airline food is really great. Boarding was significantly delayed from what it said on the boarding pass, with no updates. But we arrived on time. Getting luggage after flight at Dulles took a really long time, but I think that is more of an airport issue as getting my luggage from another Austrian airlines flight to another airport was a breeze."
Pros: "Medical help"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Lost baggage is never good."
Pros: "food was great. Slightly cold in cabin."
Cons: "had a narrow connecting flight VIE to MUC, VIE flight was delayed and had to catch MUC to IAD flight in less than 15 min. One luggage was missing at baggage claim, but as DC/ Baltimore is home, luggage arrived in 48 hrs. All is well that ends well."
Pros: "Great staff, good meals, snacks, and drinks thru the entire flight."
Pros: "Nothing, we never got to go on our flight to Vienna. The only good thing is the manager, Servando, found us an alternative route after some delay. Even then, we had to haggle and really fight for fair treatment for a mistake that was 100% the airline's fault."
Cons: "Our seats were involuntarily given away by the airport staff. We were never notified until we were scanning our tickets to board in. At that time, we had already checked in and received our boarding passes, as well as checking in 3 bags while we were traveling with a large group. There was no way we wanted to volunteer our seats, especially since we had a transfer flight to catch. We clearly stated we did NOT want to volunteer our seats at the ticket counter. No staff notified us until we were about to get on the plane to board. The flight supervisor was very rude and unprofessional, offering us no alternative solutions. I was really disappointed with such a grievous mistake by the airline, and I would not recommend flying Austrian Airlines unless it was absolutely the only airline available. They need to fix their processes for authorizing when they volunteer a passenger's seat. This caused our group a lot of stress and almost became a logistical nightmare."
Pros: "The flight was short and got us there"
Cons: "This was not business service. The seats were uncomfortable, virtually no leg room."
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."
Cons: "We had a delay of nearly two hours."
Pros: "Except eventually delay, the flight experience is good."
Cons: "We were almost three hours late on arrival. Being at VIE airport after midnight with no buses going home is no fun."
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent. Better food in coach than I get on first class domestic flights. Also, the in-flight entertainment was very good. I watched a couple of science shows and extreme sports shows that I truly enjoyed."
Cons: "There wasn't much I did not enjoy that could be changed. I chose to go coach and had to put up with seating that was more cramped than I like, but I expected that."
Pros: "If you have to fly coach, this was the way to go. The star were lovely, plane clean, food was good. Very nice flight from LAX to Vienna."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old and smelled badly. The toillets didn't work properly and were dirty."
Cons: "The departing time is quite bad 4:20 in the morning"
Pros: "The venue was overall ok"
Cons: "The connecting flight from Vienna to TLV was terrible. Austrian airline employees at the airport are rude. The information about our connecting flight was not readily or easily accessible. The flight crew from Vienna to TLV were not kind. My daughter 11 years old went hungry without a meal. The stewardess kept telling her the food was coming & never did. This was a terrible trip & we will never use Austrian air again. I will tell all my family & friends of my terrible experience."
Pros: "Most of the crew were nice. Efficient."
Cons: "Ridiculously small seats and legroom."
Pros: "I loved the boarding process. Everything was very organized! I was lucky to sit by myself next to the window, so i had plenty of space to stretch. The flight was right on schedule, so i didnt have to worry about making it to the next flight. Food was good. We were offered the water through the whole trip which is nice, because i always feel super dehydrated on the plane."
Cons: "I wasn't very satisfied with the flight attendants. I don't know if its just me getting used to american customer service, or me actually working at the customer service, but it's definetely not the greatest level of service. Girls were giving me an attitude and "smartie" ( in a rude way) responds which kinda made me feel uncomfortable and disrespected. I had the same experience with Lufthansa before. And once with russian airlines. Maybe its some kinda tendency to get erogant at this job, but please, don't get me wrong, its not that kinda job where you should look at people from above"
Pros: "The staff from service center helped me to solve problem with my flight, it was short connection, around 35 minutes, and I missed my aircraft, but in the service center gave me ticket to the next flight, The problem was solved."
Cons: "Boarding in the first flight was late for 15 minutes, but may be it has some objective reasons."
Pros: "just excellent!!!"
Cons: "very tight connection in VIE after a small late departure from LHR but we make the connection."
Pros: "It was clean Lunch was good"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for snacks"
Pros: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time"
Cons: "No entertainment, plane seemed a bit old as it made weird noises at certain altitudes"
Pros: "Very nice and polite crew, great service."
Cons: "Regular breakfast was just a muffin and nothing else :("
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."
Pros: "The crew were very nice"
Cons: "Toilets could be cleaned more often"
Pros: "The overall flight wads excellent."
Cons: "Boarding on the return flight was poorly handled as there was no organized boarding."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Instant coffee"
Cons: "Our baggage did not make it to our final destination"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful ,except for the poor food."
Cons: "The flight was 9 and half hours and the food was very poor, I was starving ,maybe AA can improve that, it would be nice if they could add a little bit of fruit and a yogurt for a good digestion .Also, the sandwich they gave us at the end was so small ,maybe they can give us a real sandwich instead ..Sorry AA ,but you need to work on that .For the price I paid I can fly United ,they don't let me starve."
Pros: "Baggage in Riga was available the moment we got to the carousel."
Cons: "Passport control in Vienna was completely disorganized. This is not an Austrian Air issue. Look to Disney World for how to line up large groups of people. Yes, I know Air Baltic is low fare. I have never paid for water on a flight. At least the WC was included in the fare."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very nice crew, nice airport (Vienna). Always enjoy the flights when I'm heading towards home...."
Pros: "Excellent service"
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: "We appreciated the upgrade to business as we are frequent travellers on Austrian; the flight attendants were very patient and kind with our children"
Cons: "Food too salty; would've liked to see English subtitles for German language movies"
Cons: "There were no air vents, which made for a hot flight."
Cons: "Toilet was dirty"
