Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"
Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"
Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"
Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"
Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."
Pros: "Great service and crew"
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."
Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."
Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"
Cons: "Luggage items are missing."
Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."
Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."
Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."
Pros: "A380 FLIGHT! Woo Hoo!"

Cons: "Staff kept reaching past me to shut my window without asking me first. Very rude."

Pros: "Supportive to my family needs traveling with 2 babies"
Cons: "I was offered an upgrade to 1st class, but not to my wife, I m thankful but had to decline the upgrade. I was hoping for more courtesy for an upgrade to us both as traveling couple rather than to one only"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "The flight was not packed so I got three seats to myself to sleep. Emirates has a lot of little touches like glow in the dark stars stuck to the cabin roof."
Cons: "Couldn’t locate the call button for flight attendants and the lines to the bathroom were long."
Pros: "Food was excellent (Emirates rep helped choose Asian veg per my need description)"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."
Pros: "Excellent food and serving"
Pros: "The crew and food was great."
Cons: "The insect repellant sprayed twice through the cabin was horrible."
Pros: "Smooth flight; Staff helpful and professional Got to tour Dubai with.Arabian Adventures who partner with Emirates."

Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "I slept well since I updated to business class."
Cons: "Service was awfull. Noticed the air hostesses showed discrimination while serving meals and attending the passengers like me. I had a very positive experience in the past but not on this trip."
Pros: "Special ordered food was good, felt like we ate too many times but it was a 15h flight. Extra legroom seats in exit row are great, but other passengers stand in front of you to wait for toilets. Not sure if entirely worth the money for that reason only. Entertainment options were plentiful."
Cons: "Other passengers that treat the public space of an airplane like their own living room or bedroom. Disgusting and rude. I'm sorry the flight attendants have to put up with poor behavior. Amenity kit seems a bit skimpy for economy class. Toothbrush was falling apart and not enough toothpaste. Bring your own on board."
Pros: "Exceptional attention to details of client comfort."
Cons: "No faults."
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing i like even."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive staff who made the flight as pleasurable as possible for us. One of the staff helped me switch from the full row I was in to an empty row which made the long flight so much more comfortable."

Cons: "WiFi services were inadequate."
Pros: "Very nice check in, because the people weren't rude. They accepted my luggage and gave me my passes."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "Too much costly for a Tuesday flight. But rest all good"
Pros: "Everyone was very plesant. The flight dinner was tasty."
Pros: "The environment was good and clean The food was on time and fresh"
Pros: "Except the seats satisfied overall."
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together."
Cons: "I had a middle seat on this flight and felt very cramped- by the end of the flight my legs were getting cramps and were twitchy. The boarding process was chaos- everyone gathered around the boarding area and it was impossible to board when the zone was called due to all the people in the way. Also, the food for breakfast was good but nothing great- the dinner on the previous flight was much more appetizing. Having said all that, flying Emirates was still a very pleasant experience."
Cons: "Thy did not hv service on demand in First Class. So had lunch at 10.30 am"
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised how great our travel with Emirates was. We usually fly in business class when traveling to Europe, but this time we were pleasantly surprise that the economy on our flight was as good as business on most American airlines. We are looking forward to another flight with Emirates!"
Cons: "Everything was great, I can't think of one thing that disappointed me."
Cons: "Flight lisbon/Dubai 8 hours delay,slepping one night in Dubai and after 15 of my arrival in Durban no luggage."
Cons: "Checkin process takes long"
Pros: "Courteous in-flight staff, delicious food."
Cons: "Long distance travel at single stretch on Chicago - Dubai sector."
Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Cons: "The temperature was set too high"
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options and $1 wifi. Don't expect fast speed but works for just fine for email and slow browsing."
Cons: "Flight wasn't booked, so people scrambled to take over middle sections. If you weren't in middle you were somewhat in a comfort trouble."
Pros: "The Airport handling staff I happen to deal with in Chicago and Dubai were very courtios and helpful . Same goes with the in flight crew ....too good ."
Cons: "There's nothing I can think of EXCEPT , they did not give disembarkation cards to fill in the aircraft befitting landing which caused everyone lot of inconvenience after landing at Hyderabad airport ."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food, drinks, entertainment Dubai terminal is amazing & stopover was worth it"
Cons: "10-across seating in a 3-4-3 layout on a 777 is unbearable for a 13.5 hr longhaul flight like Chicago to Dubai Passengers' arms ended up on top of one another in this totally full flight--hence "Armsie" class if you like to play armsie with strangers Fly only if you are very thin with narrow shoulders + hips"
Pros: "Nothing. I was sold a ticket for 709 dollars and wasn’t told I couldn’t get on until showing up to the gate. Therefore I had to spend 1000 more dollars to book another ticket because budget air wouldn’t change or refund the flight."
Cons: "Not selling a ticket with a layover where someone with a US passport cannot travel through at the moment. Be more forthcoming."
Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."
Pros: "Crew was great. Peppy and kind."
Cons: "ORD ZRH seats extremely crowded. Wished for comfy Star Alliance seats for that flight which we did enjoy from ZRH BUD"
Cons: "Crew was rude to passengers. One passenger asked for extra bread and crew arrogantly commented , we dont give but ok take one."
Cons: "Only two options for dinner is very few options."
Pros: "Some of the best airplane food I’ve had."
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: "When I purchased the ticket I did not know that I have to pay for my bag. It would have been nice to know about this in advance"
Cons: "Food is bad"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The aircraft was horrible No space at all even after paying for a better seat"
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."
Cons: "My special meal wasn’t available."
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."
Cons: "I paid to upgrade my seats and they were still tiny. I could not straighten my legs. The armrest also doesn’t go up all the way, so couples flying overnight together, beware!"
Cons: "Very little space- I thought I was in economy plus having paid extra for seat reservation. When person infrint put seat back it was very difficult to view screen"
Pros: "Captain kept us informed regarding takeoff"
Cons: "Sitting too long"
Pros: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."
Pros: "2 seats on outside sections not 3, so you can sit together as a couple and not have a random stranger in seat 3."
Cons: "Leg room is on the tighter side!"
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."
Pros: "Flight crew, food, and seatback entertainment system (with USB charging port) were all great."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and way to close. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I was forced to do the same. It was nearly impossible to eat. If you had a hint of claustrophobia, you would never make this entire trip without going nuts. I noticed that many of the middle seats were unoccupied, while my family and I were crammed into four seats side-by-side. If we had empty seats between us the flight would have been bearable."
Cons: "Not very much space for such a long flight."
Pros: "nice chocolate."
Cons: "The tv screen for my seat was semi-broken, and the UI for it was poorly designed or just old. Lufthansa was much better."
Pros: "very professional crew, clean cabin, interesting choice of documentaries"
Cons: "it would have been nice to see a hostess walk through with water every hour, of so why is there no world news in your tv selection?"
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."
Pros: "On time and friendly service"
Cons: "Poor selection of films, cramped seats and mediocre dinner"
Cons: "Warm breakfast in coach would be appreciated, but i understand it is just coach."
Pros: "Friendly crew, decent meal, and above-average entertainment systems"

Cons: "Baggage missing for three days. Communication poor."
Pros: "Crew was great! Boarded quickly! Alot of movies to watch!"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, a wide variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm a pretty small person (5'4 and 110 pounds) and it was very hard for me to get comfortable. Not that you'd expect much out of an economy class seat."
Cons: "Not. Lot of room for legs. Slection of movies very poor. Very old movies mostly"
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and led room. Another bathroom is always a plus."
Pros: "Crew and flight service are excellent top notch. Also they are very friendly and helpful. Make flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats are too close together in coach, very cramped and uncomfortable if you are a tall or large person."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't control the airflow at your seat."
Pros: "Seats very confortabile"
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."
Pros: "Staff were courteous and there was abundant food and beverage service."
Cons: "No child activities were distributed by the crew (like they did for our return flight)."
Pros: "Our attendant was very nice with a great attitude."
Cons: "Luggage line in Zurich at airplane"
Pros: "Very good. Good entertainment options."
Pros: "Great flight all together."
Pros: "More space with a window seat than I am used to. Shoulder didn't even touch the side of the plan. Loaded the back of the plan first after premium and those needing extra time."
Cons: "By the time they got to me I only had one choice for the dinner meal. No restroom in the back of the plane so I got stuck waiting for the cart to come all the way down the aisle before I could go to use it."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "The selection of movies was not impressive"
Pros: "The food was good and was served with professionalism.It was an excellent service no doubt."

Pros: "Everything very excellent"

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: "The crew was very nice. The hot towelettes before eating was very nice."
Cons: "Squished in the middle of a row. Unable to get up and get things out of my bag. Video screen not working. I had been looking forward to catching up on some movies ( rarely have time for to or movies usually) was disappointed to have no working screen on such a long flight. Did appreciate the effort to supply a gluten free meal, unfortunately someone added whole wheat crackers ( luckily still in wrapper ). The boarding area was mixed with people trying to get to New Jersey at the next gate making it very crowded and confusing, people found themselves in the wrong line."

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: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."
Pros: "Lots of movies."
Pros: "Check in was swift"
Cons: "Friendlier approach from the crew"
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: "Nothing, we never got to go on our flight to Vienna. The only good thing is the manager, Servando, found us an alternative route after some delay. Even then, we had to haggle and really fight for fair treatment for a mistake that was 100% the airline's fault."
Cons: "Our seats were involuntarily given away by the airport staff. We were never notified until we were scanning our tickets to board in. At that time, we had already checked in and received our boarding passes, as well as checking in 3 bags while we were traveling with a large group. There was no way we wanted to volunteer our seats, especially since we had a transfer flight to catch. We clearly stated we did NOT want to volunteer our seats at the ticket counter. No staff notified us until we were about to get on the plane to board. The flight supervisor was very rude and unprofessional, offering us no alternative solutions. I was really disappointed with such a grievous mistake by the airline, and I would not recommend flying Austrian Airlines unless it was absolutely the only airline available. They need to fix their processes for authorizing when they volunteer a passenger's seat. This caused our group a lot of stress and almost became a logistical nightmare."
Pros: "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: "Not enough room in the seat"

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."
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: "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."
