Airline reviews

Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"

Pros: "The entire process from boarding in Chicago until arrival in Athens was very smooth."

Pros: "Great airline overall!"
Cons: "No leg room due to the airplane box under the seat in front of me. Very difficult to straighten legs out, difficult to get comfortable."

Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."

Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Are the seats getting smaller or am I getting bigger?"

Pros: "Captain kept us informed regarding takeoff"
Cons: "Sitting too long"

Pros: "Fast flight and crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Food is just ok, could me better, I remember 2012 when I was flying first time with Swiss (same route), food was excellent and seats were much more comfortable. I’m thinking to get back on Turkish Airlines although the trip is much longer, they are much better in both above mentioned segments."

Pros: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."

Pros: "The flight was perfect until we hit horrible turbulence. 1 out of every 4 people was throwing up. We had to redirect to Milan."
Cons: "Swiss air is completely inept at handling a very normal reroute due to weather. 200 displaced people are standing in line. I’ve been here 5 hours and have not heard a word of announcement from them, our questions are rudely thwarted, and they continue to take half-an-hour to an hour per person with uncertain results. Give use new flights or a hotel."

Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."

Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, they ran out of scotch (single malt) and I only had 1 drink"

Pros: "Food, staff, service"
Cons: "No leg room"

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"

Pros: "fast, all good"
Cons: "-"

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: "On time, efficient, good service, professional"

Cons: "They lost my bag and after 24 hours, still no word on whether it's been located."

Pros: "Very prompt and courteus"
Cons: "Baggage missing for three days. Communication poor."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, a wide variety of entertainment options."

Pros: "on time flight; friendly staff"
Cons: "a little warm before takeoff; I did online check-in and I did not get the SMS with the link to download boarding pass; tried twice and didn't work; I've got in on email as luckily I had access to an wifi"

Cons: "My flight attendant was rude and condescending the entire flight. I don't appreciated being treated like a moron for asking someone to repeat a question."

Pros: "The flight crew were friendly and helpful. The food served on our flight to Zurich was delicious. We loved the big movie selection which helped pass the time."
Cons: "The leg room was terrible on this plane. If anyone reclined their seats, you were trapped and could barely get out of the row to get up or go to the bathroom. Boarding was a bit like herding cats and everyone was jammed up trying to get on without any orderly direction."

Cons: "seat size and comfort. Had metal nox take good part of my footroom. small aisle. Food lousy."

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. It was so hot I felt sick the whole way and when we pushed the call button no one came had to flag down an flight attendant walking by. We had to ask three more times to get the heat down. Overall it was okay."

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "The selection of movies was not impressive"

Pros: "I like"
Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Way to cramped. The people in front of me remained in the reclined position the entire time. This made it impossible for me to eat as their seat was too close to use my tray table. Also, the armrests did not go up fully to create more space in the seats so the long flight was cramped and uncomfortable as you could not spread out at all."

Cons: "I like Swiss airline"

Cons: "Arm rest doesn't go up all the way. Very difficult to get out when seats are reclined in front of you"

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive flight attendants who takes time to talk and care about their customers needs. Add to this their attention to keeping the WC spotless clean."

Cons: "My inflight remote control needed replacement. However it did work."

Pros: "They take great care of their customers"

Pros: "The Airbus is such an extremely "customer oriented' airplane."

Pros: "service, no delays."

Cons: "I booked a place in advance, but the place was changed because I did not check in 24 hours before the flight. And I got a place near the restroom. It was terrible!!!! it was impossible to sleep and eat normally. And the smell of the restroom all the way. Very upset."

Pros: "2nd time with Turkish Airlines; no concerns. Everything handled timely and professionally."

Pros: "Flight attendants are professional and efficient, and the aircraft is clean and has an excellent entertainment center for all passengers."
Cons: "Rows are too close, with my knees pressed against the seat in front of me. That is misery for the 10-hour flight from Chicago to Istanbul. We had a much better experience when we flew Turkish Airlines a few years ago. Sad!"

Pros: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."

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: "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 Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."

Pros: "Everything! Voted best airlines in Europe for a reason!"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great"

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. 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. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."

Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"

Pros: "excellent services provided by the crew members, nice food, great entertainment (up to date),"

Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service and comfort on my flight. Boarding went smoothly, and crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin service included Turkish delight, hot towel, an amenities bag, hot dinner, hot breakfast, and snacks available thought the flight in the galley. Entertainment was on demand and included a wide selection. Seats were comfortable with reasonable distance between rows for coach (better than on many U.S. carriers). They have ample restrooms and they are split throughout the coach cabin, which made lines for the restroom almost nonexistent. Restroom amenities include hand lotion and refreshing spray - very nice."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "1- Flight was delayed for 2 hours although weather conditions were perfect,, OK, sometimes it happens. No apology or explanation we're given 2- Entertainment screen did not work for the 10 hour flight. Told the attendant multiple times. It did not function in all the seats not only mine"

Pros: "FOOD,, CREW ATTITUDE & TIMEING."
Cons: "AS BOVE"

Pros: "New, clean, and outstanding seat layout gives lots of room. Flew a 777. Crew was very friendly and efficient. This is more roomy than any U.S. or British 747 I used to fly.

Pros: "Everything went very well. The food was fantastic. Just too warm on the plane."

Pros: "Wonderful flight with spacious seats."

Pros: "When it's on time, this is a convenient flight to Addis."
Cons: "All information was incorrect. Passengers were told to go to gate very early and then were uninformed about late departure. We stood in a line for more than an hour because of this incorrect information. Additionally, the passengers were forced to stand in cold, windy rain because bus shuttle service and boarding was inefficient. Business class ticket holders were afforded no advantage while checking in either."

Pros: "Not a lot of options as far as the entertainment was concerned. The food was really good and the staff really courteous. However the seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "No leg space Not a lot of TV shows"

Pros: "Literally everything else. I was actually unsure if i had gotten bumped up to business class or the standards they have for seating, food, and everything was just really high"
Cons: "When I arrived at my final destination, Barcelona. Turkish did not have my luggage. I was convinced that they had lost it or somebody stole it. A day later they texted me and told me that they had my luggage and delivered it. I would have loved to gotten it without delay but I did get my luggage back so that's super nice!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew...i forgot to reserve my vegetariano meal, but the crew provided for me.."

Pros: "Very good service, food, equipment and timeliness"

Pros: "Everything was amazing. The crew was great! The customer service was even better!"
Cons: "I was tired and fell asleep instead of watching more movies :)"

Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"

Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."

Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"

Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."

Pros: "Smooth and fast."
Cons: "Headphones should be free. Also some free food would be nice."

Cons: "Boarding zones is confusing. What does boarding zone "basic" mean?"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Everyone was helpful."

Pros: "Wow. I have been flying American and United for years. Delta is friendly, competent, professsional and enjoyable. They treated us like friends instead of like cattle. It was great! Great job Delta. Oh, and for the first time in 50 years of flying my bags arrived sky first. Yes! They get it!"
Cons: "Perfect experience. Well done. Treat people like friends. Simple. Works."

Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."

Cons: "Let passengers know from JFK there is a shuttle or air tram to your actual gate of departure. This could help with what the passenger may have as carry on item"

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."

Pros: "room and services"
Cons: "can't think of anything"

Pros: "Not comfortable a little but scary on the flight to Detroit. Way better coming back to Denver"

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Cons: "they did not serve food in my section at all."

Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"

Pros: "JFK to Denver the flight Attendants were once again great. Lots of entertainment choices again. The usual rough air coming into DIA."

Just what I needed, Then got me three sandwiches and big thing of orange juice at Seven Eleven,,,,, Ahhhhhh happy happy happy."

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Pros: "comfortable seats in comf+ but no pillow or blanket for 4 hr red eye? Come on delta"
Cons: "Gate agent was the worst in two years..never smiled, never thanked anyone and didnt call me by name or recognize my diamond status. Boarding was a fiasco with the pillars in too small of a gate. FA had too much coffee they kept main babin lights on way too long and kept loudly asking if anyone wanted extra drinks snacks....this is a redeye, people want to sleep!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."

Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Snacks & beverages on a 1 hour flight. Very nice crew"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment"

Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "delay delay delay"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Step stairs, no help getting up or down. You should use a Laeger plane and a jet bridge. It was awful down and up and down stairs, then walking across the tarmac, not sanded,NOT SHOVELED. Have you gone mad?"

Cons: "Drab interior. This was a Jet Airways flight."

Pros: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Pros: "for a 9.5 hour flight, the seat was actually pretty comfortable. The A330 is definitely more comfortable than 767. While the food sucked on my outbound flight from atlanta to london, the food on the amsterdam to atlanta flight was pretty good. there was a lunch, a snackbox and then a hot snack before landing. There was plenty of beer to drink so that made the flight better."
Cons: "first, the entertainment system was busted. you could use the flight tracker and play games, but couldn't watch any movies or tv shows. They only told us about this 5 minutes before boarding. There was wifi so you could stream shows to a tablet, but that assumed you had a tablet and that it was charged because the usb ports on the nonfunctioning entertainment system were, you guessed it, nonfunctional. Fortunately we had charged tablets and were able to stream some shows but they kept buffering and locking up because the gogo wifi wasn't working very well. About half the flight attendants were friendly but the other half obviously didn't want to be there. The last half hour was pretty bumpy due to remants of a hurricane in the area. The person behind me was frantically looking for a barf bag but we found out that most of the seats didn't have them. So that could have been ugly. I flew delta for the skymiles but based on this trip I will either fly on their partners (virgin, klm, airfrance) for reduced mile credit, or choose a different airline."

Cons: "I always hate to hear erroneous announcements. I don't need to know why I need to keep my seatbelt on; just to do it and MAYBE how long I'll need to do it. You don't need to alert me when you're turning the seat belt sign off. There's a "ding" and the light goes off. You could wake me up, or my wife or my sleeping child. It's like they like to hear themselves talk."

Pros: "I fist and most importantly, I liked the price of the flight. The airports were very helpful with guiding and helping speed up the checkin, boarding, and safe travel through my only stop in Mexico City."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I liked the WiFi and Movies. The flight crew was wonderful making a stressful retreat from Hurricane Irma a little better"

Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."

Cons: "Delayed for an hour and fifteen minutes"

Pros: "everything was very nice"

Pros: "The staff and crew were so helpful and friendly! Stress free flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was run through Delta out of Seattle, and the crew was friendly and very helpful, as it was initially somewhat confusing how to check in for the flight online via WestJet's site - but the check-in agents and gate agents quickly clarified! The flight also boarded and departed mostly on time, and the onboard wifi was great."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing to check in online, as the WestJet site doesn't list Seattle as a departure city and then it took several different input attempts before Delta's site found my WestJet flight info."

Cons: "My bag was damaged when I arrived at Orlando."

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"

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 food was pretty decent."

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "My overall experience was good"

Cons: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."

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 entertainment was wonderful the staff was nice."
Cons: "CONSTANT ANXIETY!! Our flight to Chicago was delayed. By 2 hours. This normally is not a big deal but it caused us to miss our connecting flight from Munich to Bremen. Then our new flight with a later time to Bremen was cancelled 20 minutes prior to boarding with no more flights to this area. The service center helped us redirect another flight to Hamburg, Germany. We had to fly to Vienna and then to Hamburg. We made it to Vienna after a 40 minute delay however, this delay caused us to miss our connecting flight once again. We were placed on an early flight the next morning to Hamburg which was an easy flight. When we got to luggage in Hamburg we noticed our luggage was missing. Supposably still in Munich. We then missed this flight and missed out on valuable time with friends who live in Germany."

Pros: "Excellent cabin service with full drinks bar, nice choice of meals and good entertainment choices"
Cons: "Entertainment system reluctant or slow to respond to commands"

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: "Great entertaining system"

Pros: "I am 6’3”. But I am also cheap. So I like being able to fit in an economy seat with more room than other airlines. Believe me, an inch or two makes all the difference."

Pros: "The flight from Chicago was only about 2/3 full and there was no one in the seat next to me so I had plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable. The flight was super smooth...hardly any turbulence and crew worked hard to keep passengers refreshed."
Cons: "I sat next to the biggest jerk on the plane (something out of Lufthansa control so I don't hold that against them). Also the seats were not the most comfortable...even for an economy seat was pretty basic. Also the entertainment system was temperamental and some of the features (flight tracker) didn't work at all."

Pros: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Amenities excellent. Food good. Entertainment system very good!"
Cons: "In business class the room for feet was too narrow. One of our seats had the metal framing in middle of my back bothersome."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, quite and smooth flight, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "I was never made aware of what food and drink options there were. I was asleep for the main meal and it would've been nice if they left a snack for me when I woke 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."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful as I was traveling alone with my 1 year old."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seat headrest flaps were broken"

Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Plane was"

Pros: "Everything was great on the flight! The food was good and we had a lot of drinks! The service is really good"

Pros: "The flight wasn't full. I was given a window seat with an empty seat next to it. I was able to move around and relax. There were lots of movies to choose from. The food was decent for a flight."

Pros: "No problems. As could be expected. Would do again."

Cons: "Frankfurt Airport--is head and shoulders the worst airport in the World. We will not be flying there again. Some dumbass at the airport thought it smart to remove the push carts. Took us one hour to get from our arrival gate to our new departure gate...horrible. They need to build a new airport. Frankfurt is horrible....we will never fly there again."

Pros: "I loved the food for the flight and the service, it's always a pleasure to travel with Lufthansa. Awesome entertaining opportunities."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Lots of movies."

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."

Cons: "Flight had no movies/in-flight service. Departed an hour late."

Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"

Pros: "Comfy seats. Plenty of washrooms. Food was good. Flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Wish the seats went back just a little more so you could stretch the legs."

Pros: "Very nice"

Pros: "Attentive, friendly staff on flight. Choice of meals, good food and drink. Plenty of restrooms in economy. Good overheard and under seat storage. Information over the speaker system was shared in German, English, and sometimes French. Individual TV screen was nice. Good smooth flight. Boarding and deboarding were painless, even in economy."
Cons: "Economy seats a little too close together for a long flight. However, economy seating was comfortable. If possible, sharing information about where to locate customs in the arrival airport, would be a nice addition."

Cons: "Flight delayed and 6 hours of additional travel"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "I used to reserve seats without fees, but Lufthansa airlines requested a fee when I tried to reserve seats in advance."

Pros: "Luggage came pretty quickly."

Cons: "A female member of the cabin crew was rude to one of the passengers (either Latino or Middle Eastern), who was unable to fasten her children's seat belts and informed the crew shortly before the take off."

Pros: "it is a short flight and my opinion is as above. I will always fly LH if I can."

Cons: "that Lufthansa now doesn't leave food for, or wake up asleep passengers. they just pass you. My move touch up monitor doesn't work, but since plane wasn't full. I moved to next seat"

Cons: "Seats are cramped up"

Cons: "Landing"

Pros: "Check in was swift"
Cons: "Friendlier approach from the crew"

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Depart on time"

Cons: "Was very satisfied with everything."

Pros: "Everything:)"

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!"

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"
Cons: "The food was not edible"

Pros: "Vino in Plastic cups from 1L"

Cons: "Not enough room in the seat"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "Everything. Keep up the good work."

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Smooth strait flight, friendly polite crew"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled .No explanation at all.Hotel was given to us.Thank you for that.We dear only 4 hours.The following day we were there since 5 in the morning and the first word was 10 o clock flight.After to many hours they decided that they can bring us to Mynih and after that flight to Tirana.So I left home Thursday 2 o clock and arrive in Tirana after 2 days. 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: "Seats, crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Random boarding,"

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: "Crew friendliness."

Pros: "Very carrying crew, kind and attentive"
Cons: "Not too many choices for entertainment, a lot of Asian movies. Food was OK"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!"

Pros: "Everything"

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: "in this case, nothing"
Cons: "1.15h delay - sitting in full air craft without aircondition cold, not profi behavior no please, no sorry, no "what would you like..." none nice word"

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."

Cons: "The Air France flight was good overall. The food was okay, comfort good, boarding good, crew excellent."

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."

Pros: "It went smoothly and my luggage showed upon time"
Cons: "Cramped quarters good thing it was a short hop"

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."
