Airline reviews

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: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Carry on baggage size misleading"

Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rude and inconsiderate - if you see that someone is sleeping, you don’t stand at their seat and lean on it and shake it while you’re waiting to give the security demo before take off."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Crew was rude to passengers. One passenger asked for extra bread and crew arrogantly commented , we dont give but ok take one."

Pros: "Coach seats were comfortable but if the person in front of you reclines, your video screen will be inches from your face and it becomes difficult to get out of your seat."
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly....almost downright rude at times"

Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were uncomfortable. No air. It was extremely hot."

Cons: "Only two options for dinner is very few options."

Pros: "Everything was just dandy!"

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: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."

Cons: "Leg room was really bad in economy and the only upgrade option was to business for $10,000 so of course not affordable for the average person."

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"

Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."

Cons: "I had a carry-on sized bag which would have fit in the overhead compartment. I was told that it would not fit the Swiss Air compartment, thus was forced to check it at the gate. I expressed my concern that it would get lost (thus the reason I never opt to check bags) and was assured "They are very efficient in Zurich." When we arrived in Madrid, my bag was not at the carousel. I was told at Customer Service that it was on another flight, but that they could deliver it to my Airbnb between 4-7 pm. I had to wait there instead of enjoying my vacation to wait for my bag. The bag did not arrive until 10:30 pm. I did not have my clothes or belongings with me all day. Swiss Air in particular needs to update their overhead compartment regulations, as my bag definitely would have fit there, and could have avoided this entire situations."

Pros: "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."

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: "My special meal wasn’t available."

Pros: "Class staff"

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

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!"

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

Pros: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."

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: "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."

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: "Most everything about the process."
Cons: "Person in front reclined chair fully and left virtually no room for sitting!"

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"

Pros: "Airline services and great time scheduling"
Cons: "Upon arriving to Chicago airport the Chicago airport couldn't get passengers off the plane due to mechanical issue"

Cons: "Warm breakfast in coach would be appreciated, but i understand it is just coach."

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: "Crew was great! Boarded quickly! Alot of movies to watch!"

Cons: "When getting our meals the flight attendants didn't ask anyone to move their seats back up so it was difficult to eat since there was no space."

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: "Flight attendants were friendly, and also very skilled so that their service was unobtrusive, graceful, and helpful. They took great care to get people what they wanted, and I saw them fulfill a few special requests from the people around me politely and quickly. The entertainment selections were good. The variety of interesting musical selections allowed me to go the whole flight without running down the battery on any of my own musical devices. The seat space was comfortable, especially compared to domestic flights I've taken for the last 10 years. The enforcement of carry-on luggage rules meant the overhead compartments were sufficient for what was brought aboard and people weren't filling the foot-space with bags."

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: "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: "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: "same"
Cons: "same"

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

Pros: "Crew was great, the seats are never comfortable"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."

Pros: "Delta service is amazing"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Cons: "A late flight due to a mechanical problem. Missed connection and Delta was of little help."

Pros: "After a late, crowded boarding process, somehow the flight crew got us off the ground on time!"
Cons: "Having more than 2 harried airline agents at the gate to handle the sold out flight filled with families with babies!"

Pros: "Awesome crew!"

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

Cons: "Aero mexico which is who delta services really messed our tickets up and flying both to Cancun and from Cancun both flights were screwed up and Delta had to bail out aero mexico both times thanks to delta airlines our tripped was salvaged"

Pros: "The ctew was awesome, super sweet and very acomodating"
Cons: "Its a flight to WV (my birth place).... it is what it is... smll planes, tight quarters and people who don’t get any of that and are not happy anout any of it"

Pros: "Good airframe."
Cons: "3+ hours delayed; didn't arrive until 3AM."

Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."

Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."

Cons: "Not enough seat room on plane. Hot not enough air flow"

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."

Cons: "The Delta staff in the Augusta airport seemed to have a hard time with getting people boarded - the instructions for what zone was being boarded and who could take what baggage or who was going to need to gate check bags was... not good."

Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."

Pros: "Flying and going fast, plus the people are kool too."
Cons: "That it was a short trip."

Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."

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: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "They changed my departure hours three times"

Cons: "Bags never arrived at the listed baggage claim. After 45 min, I saw bags on a different claim station and I notified everyone standing around. BUT, I filed a claim with Delta and was immediately given 2500 miles, as guaranteed!"

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Cons: "Excellent service excellent pilot"

Pros: "Friendly and cleanliness."
Cons: "Cold drinks were warm."

Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "uneventful"

Pros: "Everyone was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The microphone needs to be louder. It was very hard to hear."

Cons: "Seats were moved and I didn't sit with my traveling companion"

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Cons: "Even though all the seats weren't sold out I couldn't upgrade my seat afterwards"

Pros: "Appreciated the crew keeping things low key as it was a night flight"
Cons: "There were several members of one family on the flight scattered all over the plane. They seemed to want to visit with each other before the flight (making it difficult for me to get to my seat) and during the flight (making it tough to get some sleep). It would be nice if they had been seated together so as not to disturb others. I know this really isn't Delta's fault, but some people aren't very conscientious"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The speediness if the crew to get the flight boarded and in the air, entire process form boarding to unboarding was about an hour."
Cons: "Plane was loud and very stuffy, but the flight being so shore made it managable, overall good flight."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Customer service not friendly, seats are not very good, no food or entertainment on a 3.5 hour flight. United just transports you from A to B for a high price."

Cons: "My flight from Veracruz to Mexico City was canceled at the last minute and the entire itinerary was changed without notifying me. I found out the night before I was supposed to fly and spent over an hour on the phone with Delta, on and off hold, only for them to tell me there was nothing they could do and that I needed to call Aeromexico. Which I had already tried. Aeromexico stated I needed to call Delta. The back and forth was absolutely ridiculous and made even more difficult by the language barriers. There was a 6am flight that I could have been placed on in order to make my original connections, but by the time the Delta took me off hold, they told me it had been booked up. Instead they had automatically placed me on a flight 5 hours later, with a 6 hour layover in Mexico city, then to Las Vegas, and on a redeye to Charlotte (absurd considering my original itinerary had me arriving in to Charlotte at 9pm with reasonable layover times)."

Pros: "I had a confirmed first class seat when I left Daytona I had row 20 when I got to Atlanta"
Cons: "They couldn't figure it il out in Daytona"

Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"

Pros: "need to feed people more often and make the seats alittle more comfier but other then everything came out good looking forward in flying with delta again"

Pros: "It was perfect. I have no issues. Thank you"

Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."

Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"

Pros: "All over it was excellent..."

Pros: "The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway."
Cons: "Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?"

Cons: "They made me check my hand luggage, did not pay attention to what airline I would get on my connection flight, neither got my warnings about it. They sent my bag directly to my destination but the other airline wouldn't pick up."

Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "No coffee no tea. Disgusting."

Cons: "Foddd no gud"

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

Pros: "Convenience"

Pros: "The first trip from Chicago to Istanbul they given us the first chair with bed for baby But the next trip they not"

Cons: "Fewer fat peasants with too much hand luggage. Seriously, control the hand luggage before people bring it aboard."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Nice and smooth journey"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."

Pros: "Cozy big leather seats in Business Class, excellent breakfast and good service overall. Turkish Airlines continued to amaze me."

Pros: "service, no delays."

Pros: "On title"

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: "Comfortable plane Good food Friendly service"

Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my special dietary request"

Pros: "Food and service"

Pros: "Despite all other issues I got to Vienna on time."
Cons: "- there was a gate change less than half an hour before boarding, which was not announced via speaker or on the screen in the previous gate - therefore most people were still in the previous gate and only because one of the passengers realized and communicated the change everyone else became aware of it as well -> then everyone ran to the new gate, which did not have enough seating and where children were crying because they did not understand the hectic - On board - just before departure - two families got into an argument and yelled at each other and the crew. They were very loud and aggressive. - Usually I love the food Turkish Airlines serves, but this time I had dry and oily pasta and a very strange and too sweet chocolate mousse. I did not enjoy eating this and it did not taste fresh at all. - There was no entertainment."

Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."

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: "Toilet facilities"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Sits are extremy tight"

Cons: "Missed my flight because the baggage check in closed, but what bothered me was that the attendant did not give any solutions or help, just coldly said “you can’t get on because you can’t check in your bag” and continued to tell me that I should just throw my luggage and all my things away to at least check in and get my body on the plane. I felt like I had to coerce her for help or advice on what I should do with my situation and she didn’t really give me any beneficial help until right before my gate closed and my plane departed. As customer service, shouldn’t they offer help without having the customer feel like they need to convince the check in attendant to give them alternate solutions?"

Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."

Pros: "Everything was good, on time and without problems"
Cons: "Chairs might have been more comfortable"

Cons: "We had to cancel our tickets due to passport issue. They could not find acceptable new tickets. Plus additional money to pag was too much"

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: "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: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"

Pros: "This flight was cancelled"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 10:30 flight to Frankfurt"

Cons: "Landing"

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

Cons: "Was very satisfied with everything."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"

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!!!"

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!"

Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent. Dinner was excellent. The hot breakfast never came. We were served a roll and one small cup of coffee with no refills. That was my only complaint. On a long overseas flight I think a hot breakfast would have been better than a roll."

Cons: "very rocky,, too confined for such a long flight.thank you for a good lesson not to go austrian again"

Pros: "They were really good with checking in my excess baggage and my two cats. Cats travelled well and arrived as expected. Check in at O'Hare was very friendly. In the air, flight attendants were very accommodating and friendly. All luggage and cats arrived! The plane from O'Hare to Austria was very nice!"
Cons: "I think I have gotten used to Asiana's and Korean Airlines'. It just didn't seem to measure up to their business class service. The food (which has been highly rated!) I found to be just mediocre. Maybe it's because I was living in Asia for eight years and had become more accustom to asian cuisine?? I didn't love the seat either. When you recline, your feet are cramped inside a small area under the seat in front of you. It was cramped. The ability to customize the seat recline was limited. I like being able to move the head and feet into my own customized position. The business class seats from Vienna to Amman felt like coach."

Pros: "Very good flight crew. Decent food and nice entertainment."
Cons: "Poor web site. Very poor boarding crew. Boarding crew made no announcements for who must get re-elected ticketed for shares carrier tucked or web site ticketed passengers. No prep boarding plan given therefore mass at gate."

Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"

Pros: "It was perfect, very few people, great service"

Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"
Cons: "The food was not edible"

Pros: "Vino in Plastic cups from 1L"
Cons: "Could Food"

Pros: "Nothing stood out compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Flight"
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: "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: "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: "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: "We finally had to resort to twitter to do our check-in which was only for the second part of the journey."

Pros: "I am gluten free, and the stewardess knew what foods I could eat of the desserts and snacks, and I appreciated that there was food that I could eat."

Cons: "I wish the flight lasted longer than the usual 8 hours, such a great experience!"

Cons: "There were no air vents, which made for a hot flight."

Pros: "The crew was the only good thing about this flight/airline."
Cons: "I was very disappointed with Austrian airlines. I was not able to pick my own seat even after I checked in and the actual seats on the plane were extremely small and uncomfortable. This made it impossible for me to enjoy mi flight. A 5'6' person should not have any issues but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. The seat was very narrow - it felt cramped and as if they turned a space designed for 2-4-2 into a 3-4-3. When I called the customer service before the flight to get a seat next to my husband who had a separate reservation, it took about 4 calls before anyone even mentioned that out reservations could be linked together. will not fly Austrian airlines again."

Pros: "Airplane was clean. We traveled safe."
Cons: "They ran out of food options by the time they got to us. The arm rest didn't work. It was broken. No solutions were found to resolve the problem."
