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 the UK and South Africa until January 24.
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.
From January 15, all travelers entering Austria will need to register electronically in advance and obtain a pre-travel clearance (PTC). At the border, they will have to show their PTC (either digitally or as a hard copy).
For travelers who may enter the country, the Austrian government has created a list of areas which it considers to be at elevated risk for COVID-19. Anyone traveling to Austria from one of these areas in the last 10 days must be able to present at the border a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 test result issued within 72 hours prior to arrival. Without this document, entry will be refused for anyone without a valid Austrian residence permit.
All travelers arriving in Austria from countries other than Australia, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, Uruguay and Vatican City must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Austria. They have the option to undertake PCR test or antigen test after 5 days of arrival, at their own expense. If the result is negative, they will no longer need to stay in quarantine. They must fill out and sign a quarantine form, ideally before their travel and will have to hand this in upon arrival.
Austrian residents without a valid medical certificate may enter the country, but will be required to self-isolate for 10 days. Coronavirus tests, which provide the medical certificate, are available for €120 per test on arrival at Vienna and Salzburg airports for travelers with a valid Austrian residence permit. Travelers can present a negative test result to shorten the self-isolation period.
Travelers transiting through Austria without medical certificate are permitted if they can show proof that they are just transiting.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great smooth flight, crew were friendly and many movies and shoes to choose from."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not much leg room for the unfortunate ones who fly Economy class. Food was ok."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Carry on baggage size misleading"
Cons: "Crew was rude to passengers. One passenger asked for extra bread and crew arrogantly commented , we dont give but ok take one."
Pros: "Everything was just dandy!"
Pros: "Amazing food, There were pillows, blankets and earbuds on every seat. Really a great flight overall and I would fly with them again."
Cons: "The only minor complaint was that the seats are so small that when the person in front of you reclines, you literally can’t get out of your seat."
Pros: "Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full."
Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was attentive to passenger needs in a quiet way: without fanfare, did all possible to make it a pleasant, comfortable trip. In fact, went out of their way to get me a wheelchair ride to next flight, which I dearly needed"
Cons: "First flight was delayed due to circumstances outside of airline’s control. They managed to get us there and help me with wheelchair, etc to make flight. Great service and kindness"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the crew was great"
Cons: "I had a carry-on sized bag which would have fit in the overhead compartment. I was told that it would not fit the Swiss Air compartment, thus was forced to check it at the gate. I expressed my concern that it would get lost (thus the reason I never opt to check bags) and was assured "They are very efficient in Zurich." When we arrived in Madrid, my bag was not at the carousel. I was told at Customer Service that it was on another flight, but that they could deliver it to my Airbnb between 4-7 pm. I had to wait there instead of enjoying my vacation to wait for my bag. The bag did not arrive until 10:30 pm. I did not have my clothes or belongings with me all day. Swiss Air in particular needs to update their overhead compartment regulations, as my bag definitely would have fit there, and could have avoided this entire situations."

Pros: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."
Pros: "Most everything about the process."
Cons: "Person in front reclined chair fully and left virtually no room for sitting!"
Pros: "Not very much. At least the staff was friendly."
Cons: "It seems like they always sit me next to the bathrooms. If I'm paying that much for a flight, I don't really appreciate having hordes of people lined up for the bathroom, bumping me constantly. I also don't very much like the door constantly opening and closing, due to noise and the obvious smell. Furthermore, I sat next to a family with 2 screaming babies. Overall, 8 hours of agony. Not a good experience at all."
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed very courteous, but unable to do anything about the situation."
Cons: "We had a family of four sitting behind us. The father yelled all the time. They took up four overhead bins and he was frequently up and down getting things out of the bins. His very hairy large belly was touching my daughters head every time. He and his children punched the backs of our seats on a regular basis. My back was in constant pain and I was unable to do very many things due to the back pain during my "vacation", The flight attendants had to remind the parents that their children could not stand on the seats during takeoff or crawl around under the seats. No ability to change seats or I would have. I didn't have a problem with the other children on the flight, when they were crying their parents tried to do something. However these people brought playdough for their child to roll out or punch on the seat tray and all they did was constantly yell loudly at their children, Well not about the kicking, punching, or crawling around. Just yell in general at them."

Cons: "Airline lost my flight, no explanation and or apology. Seats were terrible could not move when seat in front was reclined. No economy plus, no reciprocal consideration for gold status on star alliance except for one checked bag free. I will never fly Swiss again"
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."

Pros: "Flight boarding was quick and fast and food was great."
Cons: "Seats had no room and if someone in front reclined the tv was right in your face. Also what happen to having individual fans above.

Pros: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Cons: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."

Cons: "Was hot before taking off then had cold air blowing directly on my neck. For most of the trip it was comfortable."
Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."
Pros: "The transfer flight was also very nice."
Cons: "The only thing that was a bit annoying was the delay - it was delayed for almost 1 hour."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago.

Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline.

Pros: "The food on the plane was good and the entertainment options were also nice. Many options for movies etcetera. Also as much food and drinks as you want."
Cons: "The seating was tiny. Not enough room for legs to stretch out. The plane also had Florescent lighting that changed colors every 20 seconds for the first 2 hours of the flight, my wife got nautious. At 11:30pm they served supper, which the food was good but this was supposed to be a red-eye so we were expecting some rest. The lights finally went out at 1200 midnight.

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."

Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Equipment was nice and well maintained. Seats are comfortable for coach. Video at each seat. Friendly staff."
Pros: "EXCELLENT, FRIENDLY, TIMELY, CORDIAL Service by Flight attendants!!"
Pros: "Everything was so very nice. The seats were fantastic in First Class. So comfortable. The service & food were delightful. The only negative was the screaming infant. This is my second trip on Delta in First Class in the past three months. Both times the trip was ruined by crying babies. ☹️"
Cons: "The crying infant."
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Cons: "Got in early"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight smooth and quick."
Cons: "Gate change and departure time change not reflected properly on boarding pass. Problems with gogo in Flight."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable-very close quartered"

Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "On time, quick flight, nice people."
Cons: "It was freezing cold."
Pros: "As the flight was over two hours late and a runway at JFK was shut down I opted for a full refund from Delta as I would have been at my destination less than 24 hours. Kayak & Delta was good keeping me informed of changes including the 5 gate changes"
Cons: "Boarding wasn't very prompt, but went smoothly once it began."
Pros: "The staff onboard was friendly and attentive. They made every effort to make sure I had whatever I wanted. Boarding was quick and easy. The onbaord entertainment system had a large selection and I was never without something worth watching."
Cons: "The first class accommodation isn't as good as advertised. The seat is supposed to completely recline allowing you to sleep. Unfortunately if you're 6 foot or taller there isn't enough room. Other airlines like Emirates gives you more room in their business class so it's disappointing to see United 1st class is so cramped. The screens for the onboard entertainment system in first class are lower quality then those used in coach."
Cons: "Ok. My wife and I are both disabled and use our own scooters to get around airports. My scooter broke down when I got off the plane. Toronto airport became a LOT longer pushing my scooter then. Fortunately CANADIANS GAVE ME A HAND TO GET THROUGH CUSTOMS, BAGGAGE CLAIM AND CAR RENTAL. Ok, what to do if something like this happens in America. Maybe to work with security staff cause I was in dire straights without the Canadians to help me. Thank them all. Alton Cason"
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "I didn't like having my seat assigned at the gate. I booked this flight months ago, but yet somehow I got the very last row of the plan. Which is the noisiest location with the least amount of room. On the flight back they put me in the second to last row, even though there were about 10 seats empty scattered throughout the plan. Made no sense to me."
Pros: "Flight late 46 minutes, they forgot I asked for a vegetarian meal, my business class round ticket to Peru did not gave me acceds"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Unsmiling, miserable staff. Seats like concrete. Cheap and nasty snacks"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and boarding was easy."
Cons: "didn't provide snacks. They took a long time to retrieve the luggage that was checked at the gate."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "All went as planned and expected. No thrill- like taking a Greyhound bus in the old days...gets you where you are going but without much pizzazz New seats and quite clean, but the new seats were very hard and uncomfortable after an hour."
Cons: "Somewhat claustrophobic and always wish the drop down tray table behind could be disconnected from my seat. When the passenger behind uses the tray as a set of bongo drums to keep beat with his headphones it is a pretty miserable trip."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Cons: "Entertainment unit was very slow and not even possible to operate properly. I had to ask for resetting it several times."
Cons: "Best airline"
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Seats that go flat so u can sleep on long flight"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and professional"
Cons: "Flew on 747. Sleeping mat would make lie flat “bed” more comfortable. There is very little personal storage space."
Cons: "Breakfast/snack is very bad, but no airline provides anything decent."
Pros: "Crew, entertainment and food was good"
Cons: "OMG!!! Leg room is inexistente... Lufthansa has the most uncomfortable seats ever. You really feel like you have the person in front of you sitting on your lap and the people behind kept complaining because we reclined our seats to have some space to gasp some air !!!"
Pros: "We were flying on their newest Airbus A350-900. It’s a bummer. More seats, less room, not a very nice experience for eight hours. Packed in like sardines. I have travelled LH to Eu the last six summers. I intend to look for a new airline."
Cons: "They have cut back on everything: food, service, breathing space. Their breakfast was truly a joke-a small muffin, four tiny pieces of fruit, and a package of two Oreo cookies. For breakfast -agh. And their reduced staffing barely made it around to serve coffee before we landed."
Pros: "Big airplane:)"
Cons: "I like Lufthansa but but I was on standby this is stressful this I don’t like. Over book I’m sorry but service awesome"
Cons: "boarding was late and slow, arrival at Frankfurt late"
Pros: "I like Lufthansa, I feel safe with them. Crew was nice, flight Chicago- Frankfurt very comftarble."
Cons: "My daughters tv didn’t worked it was 8 hours flight, food- beef had not eatable pieces of meat with vains only- we had choice of beef and pasta only no chicken."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful. Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "There are coffins with more legroom. Boarding took an eternity."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Nice crew. Good leg room"
Cons: "The seat was so hard and my seat back was broken so I could not recline. I paid extra for these seats and it was not comfortable."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food was small portion, roll was chilled, not warmed up. There was NO snack in the middle of the flight, breakfast was very unhealthy, all sweets!!!"
Pros: "The seats were spacious. I loved the options for viewing, klistening, etc on the tablets attached to the seat in front of me. Great service from the flight attendants. Lots of food service & drinks. Thankful for sitting close to first class."
Cons: "I would have preferred an aisle seat. Difficult to get out of the rows without everyone having to get up."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the good was quite good."
Cons: "Nothing that can be changed. It was a long flight."
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful as I was traveling alone with my 1 year old."
Pros: "trip was pretty nice"
Cons: "service excellent"
Cons: "I was surprised that flight attendant ask to close the bins that flight will not be delayed."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage on the last leg of our trip."
Cons: "Still didn't get to destination. Two hours delayed was enough to make me miss the connection flight which result in a extra 7 hours wait in Munich for a 9 hours total. But they compensate all that with a 10 euros voucher, well worth the trouble."
Pros: "Missed the connection"
Cons: "Felt helpless and frustrated."
Pros: "The planes of United Express are shabby. The service is unreliable. This was the last flight to Cedar Rapids from Chicago on the 14th. It left on time, which I regard as a miracle. That flight is chronically late or canceled. So I felt very lucky, especially after a long flight from Israel. The crew was nice however."
Cons: "I have already indicate that in part. The planes are shabby and the seats are fairly uncomfortable. The good thing about this particular flight is that the person at the gate who organized the boarding, changed my seat to one where there was no one else sitting next to me."
Pros: "My highlight for the travel was the AMAZING flight attendant named JENS. He is a bright soul. Positive, sharp, witty, and humorous. Just what I needed on a 8 hour flight over the Atlantic."
Pros: "Lufthansa crew is the best"
Pros: "we flew United"
Cons: "S7 asked for additional "fees" to cover flight expenses. They have charged extra for carry on luggage of 2,000 roubles. It was mentioned that it was international flight but they have refused to honor those rules. I have used the same bag on other airlines and did not have any problems."
Pros: "Every crew Member show care and respect"
Cons: "I Did Not have Any unpleasant experiențe after 9 years coming back to Cluj"
Pros: "I liked how smoothly the boarding process was at O'Hare."
Cons: "I didn't like that with a window seat, my area for my feet was diminished by some metal box. Also the entertainment options were severely lacking for adults. Only thing to watch in English were highlights. I had to turn to Children's entertainment. Plus, my screen froze at one point after being hard to function. The flight overall was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Snack and beverage options were good."
Cons: "aisle seemed narrower. Got bumped several times as people walked by because there just wasn't much room."
Pros: "The food was good and seemed to be plenty for an airline. Most of the crew was really friendly. Just one seemed short and put out by requests. Lots of movie choices. Loved having a USB port available"
Cons: "got the back row, so no reclining, yet the person in front of me reclined so felt crowded and kinda stuck"
Pros: "Crew personable. Beverage cart shabby."
Cons: "Baggage lost in rechecking. Attendant electronically checked only two bags instead of three. Needed to hurry to for next flight. No transport by auto offered. We are 80 yrs old and I was in much pain walking. More attention to passengers needed"
Pros: "I havd to buy a whole new flight. from mechanical errors. it was horrible. I have no help"
Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."
Pros: "Service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Every seat had headphones, but the plug didn't fit the available jack. If we hadn't brought our own earbuds it would have been 9 hours of silence."
Pros: "crew was helpful, seats comfortable, leg space good, entertainment good. a good flight without incident. boarding and getting off plane went smoothly."
Cons: "vegetarian meal had no protein, just white rice. Vegetables were good. Breakfast meal was very light, almost all carbohydrate. Some protein would have been helpful."
Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."
Pros: "on time departure, early arrival, decent food, great entertainment options, smooth flying, friendly crew and gate personnel"
Cons: "Seats are thin and barely comfortable (just like every other airline's)."
Pros: "Private screen for movies and music was wonderful. Blanket and pillow waiting on seat for you. Meal and drinks were very very good! Wonderful flight."
Cons: "Very strict instructions on when we had to close our window and when we had to open it."
Pros: "service was great. can't complain."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They packed us on another one 3 hours later. Crying babies, bad food and uncomfortable, squishy seats made the flight unpleasant."
Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Cons: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight"
Cons: "Entertainment options weren't great"
Cons: "From the boarding to the landing this crew could not have been more rude. Flashlights in the eye when trying to sleep, rude comments, rude attitude. They are clearly not here to make our flight easier."
Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable plane"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was the worst we have had on an airplane. The main course was just rice with some kind of red sauce and the rest of the meal was just poor quality vegetables and fruit. the breakfast served everyone was poor too."
Pros: "Most of the aspects of flying"
Cons: "There is a fair amount of room for improvement when it comes to Lufthansa airplane food"
Cons: "Flight had no movies/in-flight service. Departed an hour late."
Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed and 6 hours of additional travel"

Cons: "Was very satisfied with everything."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Food and workers were great"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was not very unhelpful & hardly accommodating, not helpful at all. I have never met such a cold hearted airline crew, so unthankful & not trying to help customer. They kept rolling their eyes & speaking like I was a dirt. I will NEVER fly this airline & I will make sure everyone knows."
Cons: "Came early to counter & my passport expires August 9th, so they refuse to help me & did not let me go on board even though I had approval from Jordanian country to fly there. Austerian ticket crew & supervisor did not want even to check the pass through to board with permission. The WORSE airline!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and I received no communication from Austrian Airlines. There was no staff at ticketing counter. The contact number that O’Hare had was a disconnected Verizon number, which was the same number listed on their website. I had to call the international number where I was told I was rebooked on United with 2 layovers instead of one. I also lost my business class upgrade and was told there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "Everything went very well! Boarding was easy, the flight was smooth with little turbulence, we arrived on time, the crew was friendly and attentive, the food was good!"
Cons: "Everything was very smooth, except that the seats were not very comfortable!"
Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent. Dinner was excellent. The hot breakfast never came. We were served a roll and one small cup of coffee with no refills. That was my only complaint. On a long overseas flight I think a hot breakfast would have been better than a roll."
Cons: "very rocky,, too confined for such a long flight.thank you for a good lesson not to go austrian again"
Pros: "They were really good with checking in my excess baggage and my two cats. Cats travelled well and arrived as expected. Check in at O'Hare was very friendly. In the air, flight attendants were very accommodating and friendly. All luggage and cats arrived! The plane from O'Hare to Austria was very nice!"
Cons: "I think I have gotten used to Asiana's and Korean Airlines'. It just didn't seem to measure up to their business class service. The food (which has been highly rated!) I found to be just mediocre. Maybe it's because I was living in Asia for eight years and had become more accustom to asian cuisine?? I didn't love the seat either. When you recline, your feet are cramped inside a small area under the seat in front of you. It was cramped. The ability to customize the seat recline was limited. I like being able to move the head and feet into my own customized position. The business class seats from Vienna to Amman felt like coach."
Pros: "Very good flight crew. Decent food and nice entertainment."
Cons: "Poor web site. Very poor boarding crew. Boarding crew made no announcements for who must get re-elected ticketed for shares carrier tucked or web site ticketed passengers. No prep boarding plan given therefore mass at gate."
Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"
Pros: "It was perfect, very few people, great service"
Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"

No luggage until yesterday.It never happen before.But in top of everything my plans in Albania were messed up.I have to pospne my return flight 1 week and the charges are unbelievable tooo much 650 dollars.I am not stopping here.Thank you."
Pros: "People at the desk didn't know or don't wanna say much why we have no plane"
Cons: "I arrived at Vienna on time but to Skopje we had no plans and we hade to wait till 13:40 to board"
Cons: "The aircraft was very old and smelled badly. The toillets didn't work properly and were dirty."
Pros: "Everything was great except seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "No stops"
Pros: "Would fly with them anytime."
Pros: "After departing the cluster fk that is O'Hare airport it's such a pleasure to interact with Vienna and Austrian Air. I had 'only' an hour to make the connection, and yet all, that is all, formalities took no more than 10 minutes. I had plenty of time to spare. Waiting area at the gate had plenty of seating and the staff was professional and courteous. We had to gate check bags as the plane was a regional turboprop, but everything went very smoothly."
Pros: "Compared to most American crews the Aus crew was helpful and outstanding."
Cons: "The chicken dinner was not that great and the breakfast was only a muffin, I expected more. On Turkish airlines flight from Ord to Istanbul we got a full breakfast tray."
Pros: "Very carrying crew, kind and attentive"
Cons: "Not too many choices for entertainment, a lot of Asian movies. Food was OK"
Pros: "The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!"
Pros: "Very nice and polite crew, great service."
Cons: "Regular breakfast was just a muffin and nothing else :("
Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "Most things were OK"
Cons: "Except a crying baby near me, during first half of the flight"
Cons: "Plane rescheduled, left 55 minutes later than anticipated. I was already preparing for having my luggage lost."
Cons: "After dinners the crew did not remove trays fora long time preventing movement. When the finally did there was a rush for the toilets. Having some toilets out of order compounded the problem Food is ok at best. The morning muffin was terrible A poor comparison to our flight last year on Turkish air"
Pros: "The check- in experience was simple and the seat entertainment system was excellent!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, like any economy class seating, wider seats and more recline ability would be nice."
Cons: "Our baggage did not make it to our final destination"
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: "I am gluten free, and the stewardess knew what foods I could eat of the desserts and snacks, and I appreciated that there was food that I could eat."
Cons: "I wish the flight lasted longer than the usual 8 hours, such a great experience!"
Cons: "There were no air vents, which made for a hot flight."
Pros: "The crew was the only good thing about this flight/airline."
Cons: "I was very disappointed with Austrian airlines. I was not able to pick my own seat even after I checked in and the actual seats on the plane were extremely small and uncomfortable. This made it impossible for me to enjoy mi flight. A 5'6' person should not have any issues but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. The seat was very narrow - it felt cramped and as if they turned a space designed for 2-4-2 into a 3-4-3. When I called the customer service before the flight to get a seat next to my husband who had a separate reservation, it took about 4 calls before anyone even mentioned that out reservations could be linked together. will not fly Austrian airlines again."
Pros: "Typically, flying coach is a pretty unpleasant experience. You feel like the airline has shrunk the seats to as small as possible, food is scarce and bad, entertainment choices are limited, and you have to pay for headphones. My recent experience with Austrian Air was just the opposite. Seats were comfortable, leg room was good, entertainment options were plentiful and free, the food was actually surprisingly good for airplane food, and the flight attendants were extremely nice and responsive. As an added bonus - red and white wine were free on the flight and both were actually quite delicious! Finally, our flight was smooth and on time. I wil go out of my way to book my next international flight on Austrian Air - it was a clearly superior experience than flying coach on nearly any other airline."
Pros: "Well worth the upgrade!"
