Cons: "Having to wear The face vizor is silly"

Pros: "I couldn’t eat the chicken for lunch, and I told the crew to change it for me and bring the vegetarian, but nobody brought anything. I was starving until the next meal."
Cons: "Take out the chicken sausage from your menu"

Pros: "N"

Cons: "Qatar Airways could improve food selection for business class."

Pros: "Response is the same as above"

Pros: "Really good"

Pros: "No WiFi in most of the flight duration"

Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"

Pros: "The hospitable from the crew, the food was great, but i miss my separate connection flight, eventhough i was on time to board, they boarding desk told me my bag is behind, so they could not let me fly. I bought another ticket for my connection flight."
Cons: "Becouse of flight delays, travelers have to make sure they booked their ticket having enough time to thier connection ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"

Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"

Pros: "Excellent service with attention to detail"
Cons: "lay-flat seats fairly uncomfortable in the lay-flat position (does not compare to the Q Suite used on newer aircraft) Entertainment system a bit dated, but decent selection"

Pros: "Overall great service!"

Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."

Pros: "Great crew and food served was nice for airline food."
Cons: "You need to bring a snack with you. This is a 16 hour flight and there is a long time between their food services. 2 meals and one snach"

Cons: "TOOO long."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."

Pros: "Business class was good Cabin crew service was impeccable Vegetarian meals were good Need more choices"
Cons: "Old aircraft Toilets were non functional but the crew kept them clean Entertainment systems were not functioning with remote Need complete overhaul of these Not enjoyable on a long flight"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Too long, lol"

Pros: "The food and service."

Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."

Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"

Cons: "Thanks"

Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Again amazing wonderful flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! I'm sooo impressed!!! Great food!"

Pros: "Good attitude from staff"

Pros: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"

Pros: "Same"

Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."

Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"

Pros: "on time no one in my row so i got to sleep good food"
Cons: "enoyed it all"

Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."

Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Check in staff and customer service reps were unprofessional and unhelpful. We had an 8 hour layover on both legs, no access to the lounge or a hotel was provided. I explained we were on our way to our wedding and it would be nice to have some rest. They were rude with the way they told us no, they even suggested we sleep on the floor of the airport. We ended up paying for the lounge, but then so did about 1000 other people, there was no room for us to sit together. My wife's allergy free meal wasn't provided on the first flight. We had to speak to about 5 people to get a meal ticket at the airport and they were very reluctant to give us one. I told them she was hungry and needed to eat. They told us we could take the meal we got with the ticket on board, when we went to use the ticket we had no choice in meal, were given a coke at 6am and weren't allowed to heat up our meal or take it on board. In summary, all the cabin crew on all 4 flights were excellent. Staff at Doha airport were incredibly poor."

Pros: "Overall - Flight was good."
Cons: "Food quality should be improved. Most of the staff were very courteous, except on two minor request. I guess the stewardess was a little stress due a very demanding passenger, but should not be reflected to other customers."

Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"

Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very courteous and attentive. Comfortable seats and smooth flight. Didn't feel that the flight lasted for 16 hours."
Cons: "Food needs to be asked for rather than offered."

Pros: "bathrooms had liquid on the floor sloshing around from about 1 hr after take off. Flight attendants need a disposable towel to put down. Nasty bathroom are not pleasant."
Cons: "i was blessed with 3 seats in a row. Had trouble lying down because the arm rests don't go up all the way. The seat belt connectors were not recessed, so they poked me in the side. The movie selection was only so - so. See the selection from Singapore airlines if you want to see a good example. I have many food allergies - for the sweet & savory snacks, the ingredients are in Latin - like a place holder ready for when they get the real words to put there. e.g. dolorem ipsum ..."

Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."
Cons: "The food was over cooked, and lacked freshness. I had to have the same meal twice because they ran out of the omelettes. Next time I will try Emirates."

Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I've been on in years."
Cons: "The food was awful, the lounge was worse than the free ones, and the service was absolutely the worst I've experienced in years."

Pros: "The crew were super patient there was a traveller was so irritating kept complaining about everything and ,moving from one seat to another even insulting the crew but they never lost their cool I thought that was wonderful .i learnt something."
Cons: "If a tooth paste and brush was provided in the little pack it would have made life better."

Pros: "Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "More cushion"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Yes amazing"

Cons: "Even though I chose my seat, the map of the plane on Turkish airline website didn’t match the plane seats and even though I chose an exit row seat but I was sit on a regular seat for the whole 13+ hours flight."

Pros: "Turkish is always good Didn't know kayak was associated with justfly Loved the kayak notifications. MADEAHUGE difference"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Crowd highly liked company deserves crowd"

Pros: "I really liked the selection of food, beverages, and movies"
Cons: "Economy is SO cramped for such a long flight."

Cons: "Flights were delayed for 24 hours!!!! Do not take this airlines. Inside the airport they can't even speak English. They are rude and raciest. No wheelchair were provided for the old people."

Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections"

Pros: "Combo deal....It might not sound funny to many but my 21 hour lay over gave me an opportunity to visit instabul and that was great."

Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."

Cons: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "All was perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked the overall plane journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection flight."

Pros: "I'm happy and will continue to fly Turkish."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I,d all the service and the food the drink"
Cons: "The crews are very helpfull an Cain yes I will recommend Turkish airline thank you to make my trip so placent"

Cons: "our luggages were left in instanbul so when we arrived in kenya we waited for long before being told our bags were left in instanbul,were had to come next day to collect,stressful experience because we were staying like 80 miles away"

Pros: "When I missed my flight from Belgrade to Istanbul due to plane being late 45 min.and I missed my flight to LA, they gave me a free accommodation and meals."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that nobody told me that Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is so big that you can not make to connect flight on time for an hour.Especially if you flight has been late to depart like mine from Belgrade due to the rain. I thought I will make it to the connect flight to LA but the gate was already closed. I was instructed to do multiple errands, to get Turkish visa, etc all on my expense to be able to exit the transit as an American citizen and be able to take Turkish airlines bus to the hotel.The hotel was fine and the meals. The problem was that they calculate bus traveling time wrong in the hotel and put people on the bus next day too late, so due to the traffic jam, we barely made it to the airport, and then we had to stress the officials to put us on the fast passport control lane due to boarding time."

Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"

Pros: "It was great. I told everyone about it."

Cons: "Boarding in Turkey was a bit unorganized. Bathrooms on board could be better and the crew should come pick up the food trays soon after."

Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."

Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."

Cons: "I was surprised that my laptop was taken from me without giving any explanation, I think the customer have to be informed about it."

Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats were too close so you could hardly move when the seat in front reclined. They didn't clean the bathroom during an entire 13 hour flight and it needed it."

Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"

Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "1) The vegan meals were outstanding. 2) The free movies helped a lot! 3) The Cherry Juice is Sooooo good!"
Cons: "I asked to be move from 13D (isle) to 23G (isle) They stuck me in 23E (middle) and insisted it was a middle."

Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"

Cons: "The flight from Los angeles was 3 hours late when I got to Instanbul Turkey was nobody there to help us I lost my flight and they lie to us about available flights I ask them to speak to a supervisor they told me the only Supervisor was outside the airport they wanted me to pay $30 for a visa and go through customs was the first time I flew Turkish airways and will be the last one"

Pros: "Everything was good except the airplane.. i was on row 13 and the cabinet was warm and air-condition was not working fine.. i reported this ti the flight attendant. She confirmed the temp was set to 23 C however it was definitely not less that 26C .. also it took long time to serve the hot meal although we were on rhe plane and the flight depart8 got delayed for 90 minutes due to technical problem. On the other hand, seat were comfortable and flight attendants were so nice and friendly.. also Turkish lounge and airport were good"

Pros: "Quality experience all the way around"

Cons: "Had to cancel due tp safety situation in Turkey (bombings, Dept of State warning). I had flight insurance but Kayak did not refund a dime."

Cons: "I like it everything. Turkish airline was great flight with great food and great service during the flight , great way to flight , thumbs up Turkish airline !!!"

Pros: "Again, everything was great! The kosher food from La Casa was outstanding and your stewards are polite, helpful, hard-working and professional. You have a wonderful airline! R. Lerner"

Pros: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Food; power outlet."
Cons: "legroom."

Pros: "Appreciate highten security checks giving "secured" feelings to passengers."
Cons: "Asian vegetarian meal was not as good for inbound flight as it was for outbound flight."

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "As before, as far as airline food goes, Turkish has above average meals."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by two hours and there was no representative from Turkish airlines there to answer questions. Again for someone 6'2", this plane had seats a little smaller than usual. On the way out, my knees never hit the seat ahead of me, this time they were constantly up against the back of other seat. Also this flights entertainment controls were terrible, constantly went back to home page while trying to select movie."

Pros: "they are good thank you very mush"

Pros: "that we got to check in 2 bags"
Cons: "-lost one of my bags"

Pros: "Very bad experience i have to think twice before I book airfare now !!"
Cons: "They need to have emergency back up plans for the passengers who is stuck in the airport it must be international law!"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Need to link the food request to the new flight since there was a delay from the arriving Lufthansa flight"

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "Ice cream was not good."

Pros: "Arrival on time ."
Cons: "Changing birding multiple times."

Pros: "Glad that i was able to secure a seat in the emergency exit row (row 70)"
Cons: "Wow, I am not a heavy woman, I wear a size large but I am not in the least obese, just tall and not skinny. The seat width was ridiculously tight! I have NEVER experienced such discomfort in a Emergency Row seat!"

Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"

Cons: "Lufthansa’s service counter in Munich was helpful with locating baggage and unfamiliar with transit rules."

Cons: "I never fly United because the spirits aren’t free so I chose Lufthansa. You can imagine my disappointment when it became a United flight and had to pay. Lufthansa you’ve lost a customer here."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "What’s not to love?"

Pros: "Lots of legroom"
Cons: "As with most long-distance flights, the bathrooms got somewhat dirty though I did notice flight attendants on two occasions entering to clean them"

Pros: "The seating configuration was ideal (2-3-2)"

Cons: "First time took Lufthansa airlines and it was my one of the worst experience. Hospitality is respected when customer is helped when they are in trouble not when they is happily boarded. I have to travel from Milan to San Francisco and I missed flight of my one leg ( milan to frankfurt) of journeyand I went for help and non of the Lufthansa staff at Milan airport helped me. Although my connecting flight was after 12hr they just gave me some random number which to call. I have never experience this in my 8yr of international travel."

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "staff"
Cons: "major delay, poor communication andaccommodation considering delay"

Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."

Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"

Pros: "Great service you don't have to pay extra for"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Crew was rude"

Pros: "Lufthansa flights are by far the best way to fly transatlantic!!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Kosher food ordered was not satisfactory: meat too dry and compressed. I couldn't eat that. Overall Kosher meal was poor quality. Disappointing."

Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"

Pros: "Same as above but even better."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "the gate crew didn't care if there was chaos. no interaction with waiting passengers beyond those that queued up with direct questions. i'd liken the experience to herding cattle. customer service skills haven't been taught to these folks yet. if i were basing my lufthansa experience on this alone, i'd go out of my way to fly another airline next time. on the other hand, the people staffing the flight were extremely kind, professional, pleasant, personable. a much improved experience. so much so that i mentioned it to a few people once i got home. this crew has received more training on how to provide excellent service than the gate folks in frankfurt."
Cons: "gate crew's attitude. it feels as though they are disdainful of the traveller. customer service matters. manage the boarding process. be nice about it."

Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Seating very cramped for a tall person. Tight squeeze!"

Cons: "That my seat was broken the whole time. I have a spinal injure and need to rotate positions while sitting. My seat was broken and my back hurt badly."

Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "there was ice cream for dessert at night"
Cons: "- Delay > 2 hours and no info at gate at the time of planned boarding - unfriendly ground staff and chaotic check in - old 747, "entertainment 1970s standard - crew looked unkempt (like just out of bed), unfriendly to downright rude, my 85 year old mum was ignored repeatedly and ended up not getting enough fluids as a result - 1/8 crew members managed a smile on occasion - rushed meal "service", all they wanted was to disappear to sleep - crammed spaces - while it was announced "we have three different meal choices, you will have at least two choices" - ummm, no, it was pasta. Period. To be fair the pasta turned out ok. The morning dry ham and cheese bun was not, especially without any drink."

Pros: "keep going"

Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"

Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."

Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "The staff on my flight were the most friendly crew I have ever had on a flight. They were enjoyable to interact with and went out of their way to help guests. I also appreciate that they wake you up if you are asleep while meals are being passed out; I have missed meals on planes before which is not a great experience on a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The only negative aspect about the flight were that the seats were a little uncomfortable. There weren't any foot pedals to lift your legs and the seats were extremely close together which was uncomfortable on such a long flight."

Pros: "Chairs were uncomfortable, mainly due to the front passenger was always in reclined mode, and the passenger behind me wouldn't let me recline... He would literally push my chair up, but that's probably because his chair can not recline!"
Cons: "We needed to place special request on vegetarian meal, couldn't do it at booking or at checkin, was told to let crew know, they said it's too late. They brought us an "unclaimed" vegetarian meal, but it wasn't, it was Asian halal meal with lamb! After I let crew member know wmy husband was served meat instead, she denied it and said "its not possible" as the wrapper says "vegetarian". I informed her it actually said "Asian halal", she the proceeded to say, well, "i am sorry if it's wrong, but I gave you vegetarian". That said crew member collected my husband's plates while I was in the bathroom and came back later with a "vegan" plate that they now have available."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."

Pros: "Wonderful overall"

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Cons: "Delated and boarding was a mess"

Pros: "crew, cleanliness"
Cons: "very little legroom, very uncomfortable for travellers who cannot afford business class"

Cons: "Big Screen at front of cabin when I am 2 rows behind kept me awake Boarding was a mess, not really enoughpreboarding space to hold everyone. Organizers were rude and signs were confusing."

Cons: "Too hot and stuffy. No air."

Cons: "It would have been nice to know if each meal contained cheese, as oposed to just general "chicken and rice" and "noodles with marinara and cheese" It turned ut the rice was in a cheese sauce, and i could not eat it, and could also not eat the alternate option. Please think about giving out a detailed list of ingredients for the in flight meals so we can make more informed choices when we have food restrictions!"

Cons: "I did not like the surprise of having to pay for a seat reservation, once I had purchased my tickets. This was costly and certainly unexpected."

Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"

Pros: "The customer service representative was able to get me on a flight that departed earlier due to its 2 hour delay."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Cannot ask for more"

Cons: "Buses to and from the plane. One driver left us in a full bus waiting for 20 minutes. When we arrived in Vienna, there was no bus to pick us up. We had to wait in the plane until one showed up."

Cons: "Made me go through security twice, 2nd time was right before boarding. Reason: randomly selected. And, they lost my luggage. No valid explanation given. Apparently, will get delivered on next day’s flight. A disappointing experience."

Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped"

Pros: "The cleanest of the airport and the airplane"
Cons: "The 15 hours layover"

Pros: "Friendly crew and ground crew worked VERY quickly and efficiently to deal with a broken plane and switch us all rather seamlessly to a replacement plane. Impressive."

Pros: "Amazing leg room, free snack and drink, free wi-fi."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Huge delay... :("

Pros: "Entertainment players"
Cons: "Organization when boarding (a line vs. a mob of people from all different boarding groups) not organized at all. Ended up leaving about 45 minutes late."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "My wife and I were separated by six rows. Unacceptable!"

Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."

Cons: "Terrible food and service"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, polite crew."
Cons: "1. Check-In , Check-In , check-In .. automated much more time consuming and probably costly. 2. Delayed flight (as usual) .. 6.am D.T. should either mean 6.00 or 6.05 or 6.10 ... but not 6.30. 3. Very tight connection flights in Vienna, so a slight delay could mean missed connection. 4. Food"

Pros: "Clean and new planes. On time."
Cons: "On the transatlantic flight the crew was unattractive and somewhat rude. They skipped our entire row serving morning refreshments and then complained and tried to shame us all for calling them back. Food quality was on par with Alegent Airlines. We even got charged for one piece of checked luggage 46lb on a international flight. That was a first!!!"

Cons: "There was a mix up about my reservation/ticket. Was stuck at the ticket desk for 45 min"

Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"

Pros: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Cons: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"

Pros: "Crew was nice enough, entertainment was ok. Food was ok. The plane was old and a little dirty."
Cons: "Boarding was incredibly chaotic, seats were old and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Polite crew. The food was much better that on any airline these days. The boarding process was organized fine."
Cons: "As on any airline these days the leg space in economy class is very limited. The movie selection was OK but not great."

Pros: "Staff was friendly, flight was on time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight of 12h 20min?! I was offered the appetizer (pretzel or biscuit - both of 14gr of product inside). This is unacceptable - overseas flights have to have some snacks No eye mask or ear plugs, nor socks for economy class Outdated entertainment"

Cons: "We landed so close to our boarding time, by the time i got through everything, i was notified that i had to go to gate 11 for a special security check...it was stressful since my flight was boarding...i found it really frustrating . Ultimately the plane waited and it worked out, but the process was long and VERY stressful."

Cons: "I tried to reschedule due to a death in the family and due to the "small print" this was not possible. Then when I did travel, it turned out I didn't have the right for a piece luggage (again "small print"). I paid for the extra piece and I was double-charged (same amount withdrawn twice). Now I have opened a complained with Austrian and they haven't responded so far."

Pros: "clean airplane. staff friendly and helpful. good movie selection"
Cons: "austrian and lufthansa have the worst seats in the industry. good for seating for about 30 minutes ONLY. so tough that make the trip feel even longer. a charger is needed in economy (at least one every two seats). wifi has not made it to this long haul flight yet."

Pros: "Ground crew was very kind"
Cons: "My ordered vegetarian meal was missing on the way back :("

Pros: "Boarding on time and quick"
Cons: "Food and entertainment choices"

Pros: "The rep was able to get me on Air France instead."
Cons: "This flight switch added a layover and 8 hrs to my journey home. Not to mention I was in a middle seat on the. 11 hr leg when I had originally booked a window seat."

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

Cons: "I was at the back of the plane with the constant cold air breeze, it was impossible to avoid!. I caught heavy cold and still recovering!"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable Bathrooms clean"
Cons: "Crew wasn't very helpful and didn't ensure my stroller was delivered at the aircraft exit Had trouble closing my suitcase into the overhead compartment and called for assistance, to which i got reprimanded for opening it in the first place Requested coffee because i couldn't get it myself, being with a sleeping toddler, to which i got a horrible answer: the flight attendant told me i had to get it myself in the kitchenette"

Cons: "We didnt get our kosher food so we didnt aet on this flight"

Pros: "Good place for the legs"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The food was tasty, the crew was nice and overall it was realy good"
Cons: "There wasn't any movies or music as entertainment"

Cons: "Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient"

Pros: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Cons: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."

Pros: "Good service, nice staff (better than US carriers easily)"
Cons: "2.5 hours to receive baggage - this might be on LAX"

Pros: "Good food, lots of movies, flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "We paid to pre-book our seats and when we got on the plane they had been given away. We heard several different reasons, none of which made is feel better about the two middle seats we were told we had no choice but to take, while people who had NOT prepaid sat in our aisle seat. It was offensive to be forced to pay to select our seats in advance on a major international airline in the first place, and then to not have those honored just made it worse."

Pros: "Leg room, kind staff in the airplane"
Cons: "Staff at service desk -unprofessionalism, never on time. Charged 3 times for infant ticket because of computer errors but lack of human factor explaining why, just completely horrible explanations."

Pros: "Great floght"

Pros: "It was clean Lunch was good"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for snacks"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."

Cons: "Give me some knee room. I'm only 5 10 - What happens to the tall people?"

Cons: "Austrian Air has really slipped in its food-product.. Lufthansa put out snacks (cookies etc; even small sandwiches to 'help yourself from' going from Atlanta to Frankfort which was nice). But not the case with Austrian The serving of it was fine. Restroom options are less than adequate too."

Pros: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Cons: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."

Pros: "Everything was wonderful ,except for the poor food."
Cons: "The flight was 9 and half hours and the food was very poor, I was starving ,maybe AA can improve that, it would be nice if they could add a little bit of fruit and a yogurt for a good digestion .Also, the sandwich they gave us at the end was so small ,maybe they can give us a real sandwich instead ..Sorry AA ,but you need to work on that .For the price I paid I can fly United ,they don't let me starve."

Pros: "The service was fine, although I suggest that Austrian Airlines will consult with someone who joj is to train the staff to be more efficient."
Cons: "The food was bad."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "0"

Pros: "I flew to Venice on Austrian Airlines to make a connection on an Air Canada flight to Toronto. When we debarked from the Austrian Airline onto the tarmac and picked up our luggage, I could find no signs indicating where to go for connecting flights, nor any signs indicating the gates of connecting flights. I was told that to make a connecting flight, I should go out to the main lobby of the airport, At the information desk they directed me to the Air Canada check in desk, where I found the check-in for my flight was closed. That was the the beginning of a nightmare chase to get to the plane to Toronto. I made it only because of the kindness of people in the check in, security and customs lines. Austrian Airlines should be kinder to its passengers making connecting flights. They seemed to abandon us passengers in a chaotic airport."

Pros: "Wonderful experience"

Cons: "great service & was on time & we landed early too!"

Pros: "I was able to watch Monday Night Football on Directv."

Pros: "Comfortable and on time"

Cons: "My suitcase was ruined in transit to Kansas City. The help desk basically asked me to leave my bag behind for three weeks to see if they can fix it. They had no means of looking after the contents. Was I suppose to carry my content???This was ever so frustrating since the suitcase was brand new. Then the lady told me that my warranty on the bag will cover the damage. It was obvious she was not willing to help and did not have a clue what she was doing thus I just logged the complaint and had by suitcase sorted out the San Francisco Airport. They were very helpful."

Cons: "Almost ruined my trip and lost a day of vacation"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Were held up by TSA in San Francisco because we were not given receipt for our dog who traveled with us. (We had a 2 hour layover in SF and took dog outside the security area for relief). Then the ticket counter in SF was understaffed and it took a long time to get the receipt printed (Once at the counter the agent was very helpful, efficient and quick). Should have a pet area inside the security of airports, like Palm Springs does."

Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"

Pros: "N/A"
