We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."
Pros: "Food excellent. Great movie selection. Very nice dreamliner. No complaints"
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"

Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."

Pros: "Good food includes veg."
Pros: "Good service all the way to final destination. A+ service. Newer model airplane."
Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"

Cons: "Too late."
Pros: "Good food and excellent service"
Cons: "Noisy plane made the entertainment inaudible"
Pros: "Emirates staff are very professional"
Cons: "To remove menu on paper. Rather Emirates should display the menu on the screen like other airlines who care about the environment"
Pros: "Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels."
Pros: "Crew was great! For economy class, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Amazing crew!! Lots of entertainment options. Food decent. Better than on trip from Seattle to Dubai. Check in Bathrooms kept clean on long flight We were encouraged to walk around"
Cons: "Boarding cumbersome We left Dubai late and arrived Seattle late. It was a little g flight already and the extra seat time of the delay was difficult."
Pros: "Lamb and chicken were good but kids didn't like the kids meals.."
Cons: "2 of the female crew members had attitude problems when asked simple questions by passengers. One was an Urdu speaking flight attendant and the other was a blonde woman. Regret I didn't get their names. Please work with them on being nicer with passengers."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. There is always someone from emirates around to help."
Cons: "Little more room on a 14 1/2 hour flight would be nice"
Cons: "The Crew could be more friendly"
Cons: "gate was poorly labeled. Screens and boarding card said "E11" but there were 3 gates "E11A" "E11B" and "E11C" and most passengers wasted time trying to find the right one (including "E11C" which was the first gate # passengers saw, and required going up stairs to a different floor to determine it was the wrong gate). Terrible signage, awful experience. Someone should be fired."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit."
Cons: "Almost all the flights I take out of Cairo leave late, not sure if this an airport issue or what but it is very stressful to have boarding go so slowly and to have the plane take off over an hour late. This has now become "the norm". Please make better efforts to leave ON TIME!"
Pros: "It was wonderfull"
Pros: "the food is excellent"
Cons: "Seat allotment"
Pros: "Well, the best thing was my free upgrade from Business into First ....which is perfect for the 14+ hours from Dubai to Seattle..... :)"

Pros: "Excellent trip"
Pros: "Decent leg room in economy; good entertainment system & food/drink"
Cons: "I was expecting to pay for only 10 kg excess baggage according to my own scale but was charged for 15 kg and the check-in staff was rude and unwilling to listen; in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The screen not working I feel very bored"
Pros: "entertainment part made time fly from Dubai to Seattle and staff too were awesome."
Cons: "15-hour flight not happy thing to be mid-air."
Pros: "Sorry...pushed a button the it disappeared. Will try again... As always, returning home from an international two week trip is always thrilling but exhausting. The hours of travel seem slow. My half table of Advil PM worked wonders though. Gracious service, always willing to help myself and those seated around me. Clean bathroom facilities. Overall, I'm thrilled to be home safely."
Cons: "I picked slimly through my food. Nothing seemed too appetizing. The entertainment options were a bit difficult to navigate. Choices were a bit limited as well for a long flight."
Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flighet delay"
Cons: "Despite booking wheelchair assistance throughout, my parents did not get that benefit."
Cons: "Flight was really hot ; i was almost suffocating. They kept the AC closed for an hour till the take off !! Wayer surved was hot ! Disappointing experience unfortunatly!!"

Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Cons: "missed the flight to seattle due to emirates delays, total travel time was 50 hours instead of 20, what a nightmare"
Pros: "The entertainment system, the items handed out for our comfort, the food, the attention."
Cons: "The problem which happens when the person in front of you leans back his/her seat. It makes watching something on the entertainment system very difficult!"
Pros: "I was travelling to Addis Ababa on Dec29 But I wanted to celebrate New years eve in Dubai and stayed for 6days',But that wasn't Good idea.They charge me More than $300 for my luggage to go Addis Ababa,I know I have extra luggage but my thought was starting seattle until Addis."
Cons: "I will never ever use emirates"
Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "no complains"
Pros: "All was good"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Food taste, staff service"
Cons: "Front of the section seat - Very uncomfortable, badly positioned. I was in seat 37H if I remember it correctly. It was a Aisle seat and this particular seat was extremely uncomfortable. Everyone passing by would somehow kick my feet on their way to the restroom. The tray was too small."
Pros: "Excellent experience"
Cons: "I got food poisoning on this flight. Cramped in the middle seat for 14 hours while throwing up was not pleasant."
Pros: "Awesome! I love flying with Emirates and I will continue flying with them."

Pros: "We arrived."
Pros: "There was sufficient legroom at the seat. Amenities were provided to remain "fresh". Not computer literate, the entertainment was more than adequate."
Cons: "I told the flight attendant while boarding that it was not appropriate to have very little children on a flight of this length. Much to my chagrin, an Indian woman had two howling urchins one row in front of me. These howling urchins proceeded to scream their lungs out for 11 of the 13 hours of the flight!! One of the babies was so small, it looked like she had just pushed the critter out earlier that day!! Had they told the Indian woman to drive or swim to Dubai, the ratings would've have been excellent. I did not pay good money to have to sit in a NURSERY!!!!!"
Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me"
Cons: "A big lady sat in the empty seat because it was on the isle....dang it"
Cons: "I loved it"
Cons: "Customer service at cairo airport is soooooo bad. They don't care at all about customers."
Pros: "Available movies are great! Food is really good, but if your seat is in the end of the plaine, your choises of food will be smaller (meat plates ends before you get the opportunity to ask for it)."
Cons: "Emirates is located in a crowded terminal in Cairo and from the airport entrance to the gate can take you more than one hour. Also, some people in this airport don't respect the queue, so you have to pay attention on your place in the line and sometimes, 'fight' for it. My flight had lots of kids, and even asking the parents to control their kids, it didn't happened. During part of my flight I had a child kicking the back of my seat!"
Pros: "On time on each leg of the journey. Excellent food, excellent service. In flight Internet available for just US $2 for duration of the journey. Thoughtful meal selections and gifts"
Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."
Cons: "The service that Emirates provided."
Pros: "Timings were perfect for flight landing and departure. Cleanliness was there."
Cons: "Service was very poor. Asked for warm water 3-4 times - no response.. Asked for green tea - no response."
Pros: "It was clean. The aircraft was new, well maintained."
Cons: "The aircraft departed and landed late. I then missed my next connection. The majority of the people working seemed to care but there was no general way to make the late arrival and missed boarding overcome with a plan. It seems it was more my fault than the airlines."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Lack of crying babies and lack of sleep seats too close lack of comfort"
Cons: "Difficult trip and costly delays both ways. Going to Cairo from Istanbul we were delayed 5 hrs so we arrived at 1AM instead of 8:30PM the night before."
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines was absolutely the worst airline I have ever been on. My flight going there was delayed 4 hrs & I missed my connection. They lost my bag & it arrived after 1 wk. Today, my flight was again delayed and I almost missed my layover. Again, my bag did not arrive & they ripped my carry on"
Pros: "Crew was very good and seat in long trip was comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding in first leg needs more organization"
Pros: "The seat is comfortable"
Pros: "Leg room was OK"
Cons: "No alcohol service, cabin lights not dimmed seeing it was a late night flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive to needs. I arrived safely at my destination so that’s all that matters."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed at CAI and no one informed us of this. I almost missed my connecting flight."

Cons: "Bad service, flight delay, bad customer services"
Cons: "They lost my baggage and everything I had was in that bag!"
Pros: "Food and service"

Pros: "Service is good, and food as well."
Cons: "This flight didn’t take take off on time. It was delayed A whole hour which made me miss my connection flight To Houston."
Pros: "Our flight from CAIRO was delayed for 3 and half hours. We missed our flight to Chicago. The Staff at Istanbul airport were very very unhelpful and rude. They did not try at all to find an alternative route for us. The lack of empathy and understanding was astounding. NEVER TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN!"
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "delay time and Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Do you like crying babies and kids running around the aircraft? If yes, then you would have loved this flight."
Cons: "Everything. This was the worst star alliance flight i have taken. No control over the passengers, and kids. Screaming children the entire flight. I was not able to sleep at all. They did not dim the lights until extremely late in the flight. Business class lights were dimmed several hours before economy. The staff at gate check-in was not helpful. My seating assignment was separated from my wife. I was told they could not move me. I was originally set to be seated next to a young mother and baby. I switched with her husband and another passenger to be seated next to my wife. Why do I need to arrange a seating assignment that should have been obvious? Plus they did not credit me with my mileage. Thanks, never again."
Cons: "The 2 flights were delayed, I went to my work late Both bags were broken"
Cons: "Cabin crew in business class were not especially friendly and was really lazy during the welcome drink service. They did not even ask each passenger and greeted them to see if they want anything. Instead, they just held the tray of welcome drink and walked around the cabin once, then poured all the unconsumed welcome drinks into the bathroom. Service after take off was abysmal as well. No smile, no addressing passenger by name, all the service was done in a rush and a totally weird manner. The food is not very much to my liking since it heavily consisted of cheese, and there is literally no choice for you to get away with that. Having a traditional Turkish menu is great at one hand, but in this case it was a huge no-no."
Cons: "The gate from Boston to Cairo in Istanbul is too far away. My plane left Boston one hour late so I had only about 50 mn to run from gate 200 to gate 712. Also in Boston the called all the family with children from business AND from economy to board first the we the Business we started to boarded after which was one hour after boarding time. That was REDICULOUS. Turkish Airline team was so slow and unprofessional unlike the team in Istanbul. But on the plane the service and food was excellent. Mervat Ali"
Pros: "Service. Very professional staff. Great food and drinks."
Cons: "There was a delay with boarding. Then there was a delay with leaving off, maybe an hr late and then we arrived there was a delay getting off. I did not get off the plane until 630 even though plane arrived at 549 exactly."
Pros: "the food is good - staff are generally friendly but not great with English if you have a problem"
Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The disorganization and misinformation was unprecedented. I have been traveling for 30 years and tried almost all airlines, but the Turkish Airline office at Cairo Airport ranked the poorest I have ever seen. The disorganization was as if they do not know what to do. First they said the plane arrived late, then they said there was a bird hitting the engine. The excuses were so laughable beyond belief."
Pros: "Food and good movies selection"
Cons: "Flight attendant actitud"
Pros: "Flight attendance service is great"
Cons: "Boarding process too complicated with several security check points make the travel more difficult"
Pros: "Always courteous service."

Pros: "Comfortable and nice people"
Pros: "easy check in"
Cons: "lack of leg room"
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't give food 5 stars though, because compared to my previous experience, quality is less than usual. I always fly on Turkish airlines and I like it overall. Security at Istanbul airport is great. Better than anywhere else."

Pros: "Istanbul airport was very crowded and bathroom were not clean"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment, seat comfort"
Pros: "The speed in which the aircraft was boarded and the refreshments given quickly"
Cons: "The lack of order and last minute information not being given"
Cons: "First we did not Flight from Cairo to Istanbul because the trouble happened in Turkey I blame to KAYAK because they didn't followed up the situation and did not gave us any information also till now did not know if we flight or no that not good we tried to call the agent many time and they told us all thing is ok no change but when we review with Turkish airline the change the day and reserved in another AIRLINE Company Second : we had a one luggage was damaged from USA to CAIRO we did a report # CAI TK 56650 IN CAIRO AIRPORT but nothing happened and no one call us until now ,Please check and let us know what we can do Ehab Sargyous 409-719-2196"

Very comfortable flight."

Cons: "See first comment."
Pros: "Thanks for continuing to offer complimentary, hot meals on your international flights! Crew very friendly. Despite being in economy cabin, crew attempted to make it a good experience."

Cons: "The crew change the seat with a new boarding pass without my permission . They are not professional at all"
Pros: "The crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "TV screens were old. Its response to the touch was iffy. It used to detect the touch point correctly sometimes but not other times. Often it took quiet some time to read and start something of my choice, which was quiet frustrating."
Pros: "Keeping in mind it was an economy class, I thought the flight was fine. Decent food. I would have preferred some with a heavy cheese sauce. I had gotten sick in Egypt and I felt lousy (dizziness and headache). Despite my physical condition I thought the flight was okay. Crew were professional and airplane was clean. Beer to drink. Other than the fact I was sick, I enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The dinner option was okay. I felt the heavy cheese sauce pasta was a bit too rich. Other components to the dinner was fine."
Pros: "Prompt, great crew"
Cons: "No power ports, entertainment options"
Pros: "Check in, crew and food"
Cons: "Over than one hour to board only one security lane was open and no enough trays for check our stuff"
Pros: "We had more room with a 2-seat array in the middle of the plane. It was more comfortable than the 3 seat array."
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "1- the aircraft from cairo to munich was so small that they didn’t allow the carry on baggage and I had to put it with the check in baggage. 2- the special meal ( muslim meal ) that I ordered was a veggie meal !!!!! With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."
Cons: "Walking under rain from the plane to terminal. Not as good as Lufthansa was some years ago. Old planes."
Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."
Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."
Pros: "Breakfast should not be served 4 AM Cairo time, 40 minutes after boarding"
Cons: "Staff was rude"
Cons: "Needed more visible organized pickets showing the seat ranges avoiding mixed lined passengers and delay."
Cons: "I made seat reservation in the internet and the LH agent change it"
Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"
Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. I enjoyed the choice of entertainment. Food and drink were fine."
Cons: "I wish we had more leg room. It was so crowded and I could barely move!"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "can't think of anything"
Cons: "The vegetation meals were not appealing. There was no flavor and strange food combinations."
Pros: "You always have the best looking flight attendants. After a year in Egypt it was refreshing to see something other than black haired woman. The food was great as always. Keep doing what youre doing. Thank you Olivia."
Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."
Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was excellent"
Cons: "One flight assistant seemed a bit gruff and impatient compared to the others . Also food was nothing special. We could have used more water offerings and trash pickups during the flight afterwards the cabin was a mess."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. Friendly, efficient and professional. I upgraded my seat for more legroom and it was simply amazing."
Cons: "Nothing to report :)"
Cons: "They ran out of one of the meal options and then one of the meals later had sauerkraut which the smell of in the plane was overwhelming and made me feel unwell."
Pros: "I witnessed the flight crew defuse a conflict between two male passengers (that had escalated to shouting and throwing each others belongings out of overhead storage) before we left Frankfurt. A male steward showed he could be professionally stern when backing up a female coworker handling the situation and compassionate when he comforted an elderly woman in distress halfway through the intercontinental flight. The entire crew I interacted with in economy class were professional, friendly, welcoming, and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding the entire plane at once was inefficient and caused conflicts over the availability of overhead storage. Obviously this is an airline decision and not a flight specific problem."
Pros: "They have some films with subtitles- perfect for Deaf people."
Cons: "Wish all films have subtitles- there are millions of deaf people in the world, you know?"
Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Pros: "They have Economy class seats on the business class. Uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was all fine, a bit cramped, but otherwise fine"
Cons: "I had only 40 minutes to board my connecting flight to Vienna, had to run through two sets of security gates and one immigration and a long walk - at 64, I almost didnt make it, and was the last one to board huffing and puffing!"
Cons: "Was unable to take the trip. Unable to rebook without excessive fees. Lost $2000."
Cons: "I was switched seats against my will on board! Although i reserved the seat ahead of time when i got in i was pretty much forced to sit somewhere else. The staff handled the sitution in a very poor manner!"
Cons: "When we checked in, we were told we didn't have seats because the plane was overbooked. We waited at the gate for information. The attendants were curt and not helpful, they told us they had no information. After the plane was boarded, we were finally given tickets with seats and rushed onto the plane. When we arrived at the Sarajevo airport, our luggage and the luggage of many passengers did not arrive! We waited in a line for 1.5 hours to put in a claim for our suitcases. It was not a good experience."
Cons: "small seats,no LCD for each one,food nor so good."
Cons: "Food terrible"
Pros: "Nothing. See below."
Cons: "Original flight cancelled so rebooked ojba floght five hours later - then with one hour to go until that second flight, that was cancelled as well. Totally unhelpful ground staff, who were oblivious to the fact that I had a work commitment the next day so couldn’t overnight in some random hotel at an airport to suit Austrian’s policies. Eventually routed via Lisbon which meant literally flying all night to arrive at 0600. Lufthansa and Austrian have some serious faults to correct."
Cons: "Flight was late departing Cairo Changing flights from Cairo to Amsterdam was scheduled at 50 minutes. I asked the male flight attendant about changing airplanes, said our new gate was right next to our arriving gate. He said no problem. He failed to mention we had to go through customs and security again, and walk almost a Kilometer in the process. Fortunately they held the Amsterdam plane because many passengers would have missed it. I did not appreciate the lack of information from the flight attendant, however holding the plane was a godsend."
Pros: "Generally very pleasant flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Service was good and the crew was courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Online check-in did not allow me to select my seat. It was already assigned and didn't let me change it Boarding was later than scheduled and caused my connecting flight at O'Hare hectic This was the first time that I had ordered Kosher food and I would never make that mistake again, the meal was okay but the sandwich was awful and had no taste!"
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: "very rocky,, too confined for such a long flight.thank you for a good lesson not to go austrian again"
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
Cons: "We are late only 25 min (50% of flight - 50 min)"
Pros: "Excellent flight Excellent food"
Pros: "Again as in previous flight very efficient professional and pleasant staff ."
Cons: "Seat reservation system didn't work ,reserved one seat and got another.Food portions were smallish .No internet over the Atlantic .While the multimedia service was phenomenal I guess there could have been a larger variety and more episodes would have been good as well ."
Pros: "I liked that the plane eventually came..."
Cons: "That the plane was an hour late..."
Pros: "Crew was great. Comfortable in terms of airline travel. Entertainment selection was spectacular given the long flights and the fact I was with three kids. Really pleased!"
Cons: "Food was ok, not great."
Cons: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "we had some delay, and they did not inform us at all how long this will take. so this is something ot work on."
Cons: "Missed my flight!!!!!"
Pros: "Personal entertainment screens, average choice of movies."
Cons: "2.5 hrs late departure with little information meantime, almost missed our connection. our luggage did not arrive with us. Poor food, almost no service during flight."
Pros: "The economy seats had as much leg room as the Premium Economy seats on Luthansa, so the comfort over a long flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "The charge for checking a 2nd bag was $100 which I thought was much too high. Food was average and not enough given that we were on the plane for over 10 hours."
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."
Cons: "I can not afford first class tickets..."
Cons: "When our plane arrived late, many on board had missed connections. We received no help/guidance at gate, other than to be told to go up one floor. One floor up we had to go thru security to reach customer service. 100 people lined up for customer service from 3 Austrian airline reps. After 2 hours of standing, there were still 27 people ahead of me. The woman behind me gave me the local phone number for Austrian airlines and I was able to get on a flight to US leaving in 30 minutes. I managed to make it, and would not have had I waited another hour in line. Why no surge of staff to help? All 3 help numbers on my Lufthansa e-mail receipt could not help. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Everything. Keep up the good work."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "I was at the back of the plane with the constant cold air breeze, it was impossible to avoid!. I caught heavy cold and still recovering!"

Pros: "The meal was ok The airplane was clean"
Cons: "Seats were very nerow .No help from the crew . Flight delayed"
Pros: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"
Pros: "Even though I was very disappointed at what the Austrian airline did to me, the staff and crew and captains where professional and the flight was comfortable especially on Lufthansa. However, I missed the experience of enjoying the flight with the group of people that I joined on the way to Vienna and to Egypt."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that they cancelled my Austrian flight to a completely different company (Lufthansa). I paid extra money when I reserved the tickets in the USA to make sure I am on the same plane as the other three families that i wanted to be with as a group. They had reserved their tickets and I got the flight numbers and when I reserved my booking I paid extra to be on the same airplane as the rest of the group. My plan worked going to Vienna and to Cairo (although one of the planes were delayed 3 hours which ruined our stay in Vienna) but on the way back from Cairo to LA, I couldn't be with the group because I left 2 hours early and arrived in LA 2 hours late. I pleaded that I came with a group but they said I have a different booking so they couldn't honor keeping me on the same plane as the group. I am very disappointed and will avoid my future travel with Austrian airline"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food and the boarding at Vienna airport"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we weren't notified."
Cons: "- My flight was rescheduled twice. Very short connection time, they said that there are no other options but actually there were other options. - Bad web check-in service. There were errors/bugs in the check-in service."

Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Whole process of checking in, security, and boarding was very easy."
Pros: "Crew anf foid - great!"
Cons: "No room there. It was a nightmare for 12 hours. Never again with Austrian!"
Pros: "Service was great and the flight on time."
Pros: "Flight services were good. Staff friendly. food was good"
Cons: "Maybe I was upset due to the issues at the first leg so could not enjoy this one"
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."
