Service was excellent but food was mediocre

Food options should be better for vegetarians

Love the service . Crews . Enjoyed flying Qatar airways

Nothing you guys book me the wrong flight and I have to run around until I find my right plane

Only the flying part was okay. They have not served food to two of us in the Doha to Hyderabad flight They told that they are not aware of our food requirements We had to travel without food

Pricing

ALX check in staff unprofessional attitude, unaware the employer rules & regulations and so much traylers suffer due to check it n staff non guidance approach

Food services wheelchair comfort Maximum help for other flight I really appreciate your services

Cons: "It would have been better if the wifi was included."
Pros: "Great crew, excellent staff at the airport. Planes were nice and comfortable. Food was ok. They have an excellent price to quality ratio; you can often get great prices on some of the more popular destinations and the service is 5 stars."
Cons: "Some alcoholic drinks"
Cons: "Flight was a little long!"
Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."

Pros: "Everything!!!"
Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."
Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."

One guy barely opened his mouth and talked by pointing fingers. So rude! The food portion size is an absolute joke! Never have I seen such a skinny sized meal. It was insane. I’m a lean guy and even I wasn’t full! The quality of the food in the second service was awful. My rice wasn’t cooked all the way & the bread was clearly stale."

Cons: "The plan was very hot and made the experience less than desirable."
Pros: "Arrival and departure is on time treatment is excellent very courteous For all category of passenger"
Cons: "South Indian food may. Made available"
Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"
Cons: "The boarding process was strange, with one guy directing several different zones to stand in line, people not cooperating and just overrall not very organized."
Pros: "I like the service very much. Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful, polite. After the flight I got some present. Kit with socks eye mask and lip balm, which was very nice."
Cons: "Dnt have anything to say what I dnt like. Everything is great."

Pros: "First time I got ice cream on a plane"
Cons: "Low calorie meals were horrible."
Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"

Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"
Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."
Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"
Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."

The flight crew directed me to the wrong aisle during the boarding process. Reaching my seat while pulling my luggage around was a hassle for me, as well as for the other passengers. One of the crew members almost refused to let me bring my carry-on onboard because they thought it wouldn’t fit in the overhead cabins. I use this bag for all my travels, and when it came to storing it above my seat, it fit. 2 other luggages fit alongside it without issue. That person made unnecessary hassle for me and left me feeling uncomfortable at the possibility of having to pay extra fees because of their incorrect and unneeded opinion. The entertainment was extremely limited with about 10 movies available, as well as 7 shows. This was a 15 hour flight, so it would have been nice to have more options.

None

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "I requested a vegan vegetarian meal and did not get it. I had to do with the regular meal which had a lot of dairy products to which I am allergic to. The space between rows of seats. It was really crammed in Economy and we are a petite thin family!"

Cons: "A little more leg room would be great"
Pros: "Hospitality was wonderful. The food and drinks were great and the constant entertainment made the 10+ hour flight bearable."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable but there is definitely not enough leg room especially if you are sitting in the middle seat. There should be some type of incentive given if you get stuck sitting between two complete strangers."
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendant brought me a second dessert after I raved about it (excellent strawberry mousse!) Warm croissants and bread for breakfast! The even came with seconds. Yes! Delicious Easter eggs on both flights. Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The width of the seats. Tricky to have that elbow rest, it is you or your neighbor!"
Pros: "The food was decent and on board entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "The boarding experience was terrible. We bought new lightweight International sized carry-on bags for our family of four and packed extremely light to keep each of bags under the 8 kg weight limit for carry-on bags. The crew required us to check them anyway! So incredibly annoying."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I do not know how to go about contesting his, but we bought 4 tickets to South Africa on Swiss air and Edelweiss via Zurich. We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."
Cons: "We purchased the last two again and when we showed up at the ticket counted they let us know that we bought 6 tickets!!!!!!!! We would like to be reimbursed for the two tickets we did not receive the confirmation emails for. How can we go about it?"

Cons: "No information on the flight about how to proceed with our missed conncetions nor anyone to meet in Zurich at gate with information."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 1 hour at least after overlay of 4 hours. I missed my flight from Vienna to Yerevan and the portion of my trip was detoured to Moscow and from there to Yerevan instead of 3 hours took me 8 hours. As a result of rushing and running in Vienna to catch my flight to Yerevan I feel and injured my hip, I would like a compensation , Please contact me at armine100@cox.net or phone 703-609-8649"

Pros: "Staff friendly and flight very smooth"
Cons: "The breakfast was very poor. Two different servings of OJ(why?), non fat yoghurt and bread. Coffee came with only one cream. Media screen and audio did not work, and usb charger kept turning off. Barely able to recharge phone over the span of 10 hour flight! My next neighbor had same problem."

Pros: "Friendly team, great food and snacks and tons of movies to choose from."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Swiss air seems to have lost its service edge. The flight attendants just stood around and watched while I struggled with my cane and my bag. They only seemed to snap into action to tell people what to do or not do. I flew the same route two years ago and staff was really kind. Maybe the working conditions have changed; they seemed harried and annoyed (in coach, at least). And I don't think they had to stand in line for an _hour_ to check in (thanks, LAX)."
Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."
Pros: "Flight attendants where very nice and attentive. Good choice of movies and shows for adults and kids. I usually don't eat airplane food but it looked fresh and my kids enjoyed the breakfast very much with fresh baked bread and croissant.

Pros: "The crew made the right call after the Swiss computers shutted down"

Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me. But he did not and I had to push and shove with everyone else as their is no plan. Awful! Service was good. Lots of water and juice brought round in the night of"
Pros: "So far so good."
Pros: "Flight crew and gate agents were amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was late and we were asked to stand in line down the hallway for an extended period of time Movie selection small"

Cons: "That I had a 5 hour delay and I was t informed about it earlier"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience"

Pros: "I loved the food, the crew, and the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "entertainment system was good. Pilot was nice crew was pretty nice ."

Cons: "Hard to sleep on the plane. Way too expensive to take a guitar as either checked luggage or carry on."

Cons: "I was asked to move from my reserved seat for another flyer"
Pros: "The straff is very nice. this made the flight a positive for me"
Cons: "i work with tech stuff and i couldnt find the switch for english on the entertainment system, or how to turn it off so the glow would bother me."
Pros: "very nice flight, good attendants, plentiful with food and drink although dinner was dry (pasta) but tasted fine. Planes (I had to transfer) were on time and efficient. My carry on luggage was weighed which was unusual to me. It was overweight but the kind clerk checked my bag through with no charge as a favor. A pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "Had to make a lot of calls to clarify things. Website not always clear. An example is that I paid extra to reserve seats early and when I went online to do other things, although it showed that I had a seat reserved, it also said no reservations were being taken for the flight in a highlighted notice. Turns out it was just a general blanket message but to me it looked like my seat may have been cancelled. All phone representatives were courteous and helpful although sometimes their accents were strong and challenging to understand but they didn't mind repeating themselves until I understood."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was really helpful"
Pros: "Movies and screen"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Crew doesn’t speak good English"
Cons: "During flight after first meal the cabin temperature is way to cold. Then it gets warmer but later, second half of the flight the air gets very cold again so it’s difficult to have a good sleep."

Pros: "awesome flight awesome food"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and the airline crew excelente"
Cons: "The seat a little inconfortable for me"
Pros: "Like most American Airlines, Turkish Airlines provides no-frills service. On the other hand, having a pleasant and respectful flight crew can make a tremendous difference in the passengers experience. We were lucky enough to have a flight attendant named Gulhan Who smiled the entire flight. She was professional, courteous, and service oriented. Most of the flight crew showed similar professionalism. Turkish Airlines had for better service then any of the American or European airlines I have encountered during the last 10 years."

Pros: "Nice crew. Boarding and deplane was fairly easy and quick."
Cons: "Seats in coach are quite close and became worse when people reclined."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The lateness of flights"
Pros: "The service and food was excellent. The entertainment choices was amazing. They gave me two decent-sized bottles of wine without charging me."
Cons: "They give you very little leg room. The seat in front of you touches your knees. After 8 hours in the same position it feels like you are stuck in a coffin or a primatial medieval torture device. The seat begins to hurt your back. You can't get in a comfortable position. You can't turn left or right. There's a little foot rest that gives you 10 minutes of relief but then that gets uncomfortable. If one of the people seated in with the inner row needs to use the restroom then the whole row needs to get up. It's cruel and unusual punishment. The airline just needs to expand the rows by 6 inches. Before you go bring a neck pillow and a butt cushion. Or better yet, pick a seat located in a front section that gives you more leg room. If you have the option then this should be a higher priority over a window seat. You will thank me for this advice."
Pros: "Horrible"
Cons: "Asked for a refund, Turkey is a hot spot for terrorism and Americans have been evacuated from this country. Airline would not refund or let me change names on my tickets. I will never deal with this airline again."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "So I never actually flew with Turkish this trip, but I can write about my rerouting experiences. Inbound my first connection to Istanbul was cancelled due to technical problems. Fortunately I was second in the ticket office line and was promptly rebooked with Lufthansa. My return flight was cancelled because of the coup, and again I was rebooked with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Overall Turkish Airlines did well in a difficult situation. But a few concerns. On my inbound flight, the agent servicing us was amazing and I was fortunate to be second in line, but the airline was ill prepared for the situation and the agent was being hung out to dry by his colleagues who kept calling him and wouldn't let him do his job. On the return flight, I was frustrated the agents at first pushed me to take a refund rather than letting me rebook with a partner. I ended up having to leave a day later than expected, and didn't get an itinerary till the morning after my original flight. This was all very stressful. Lastly, you have to think twice about flying through Turkey. Although this coup is over, the next crisis will be over whether President Erdogan creeping authoritarianism."

Pros: "Over all is ok"
Cons: "Stay over in Istanbul, they gave only one meal for 24hr"
Cons: "The attendents, kinda rude"
Pros: "Nothkng"
Cons: "Would not r commend in any capacity"
Pros: "Crew service, choice of in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Food was below par."

Flight cancelled, rebooked for next morning… Outgoing flight was also late and personnel a bit brutal… See Twitter remarks. Much progress to do!

Pros: "The crew members were so sweet."
Cons: "Flight was late. I missed my connection."
Cons: "Mi s-au pierdut bagajele !"
Pros: "Service was very good"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Cons: "Seat spacing is small, to the point that it's impossible to remain in the seat few hours without physical pain in your body"
Pros: "The plane was comparatively clean"
Cons: "Staff need to be a little more genuine with their simles or just don’t give obvious fake ones."
Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "The crew kept the temperature in cabin at 26 or 28 degrees Celsius. Whole trip felt like being in the oven. I will NEVER EVER FLY AUSTRIAN AIRLINES AGAIN."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Small space in middle seat"
Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "None of them above I'm not happy at all"
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Boarding was not organized at all. I was sitting in the front yet I got in almost at the end and barely was able to find a place for my handbags. Ut took way too long and people had to stand for a long time to board. Crew members were not up to par either. I had my earphones and was watching a movie and feel asleep. And everytime one them passes by, they will knock me awake. I was extremely tired and tried hard to sleep yet they kept waking me up every time one of them passes by, no matter how skinny they were! Totally unprofessional."
Pros: "Boarding was great. As it was a short there was no entertainment. I would have chosen N/A bit that wasn’t an option hence the one star."
Cons: "I wish there was an option of a sandwich vice sweet or pretzels."
Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
Cons: "We are late only 25 min (50% of flight - 50 min)"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and drink service was frequent."
Cons: "The gate was older, not well appointed and far from shops and better dining. We lined up only to be taken on a very long shuttle ride to the plane. I have had this experience before but in this case the planes location was virtually on the other side of the terminal. By the time all were boarded, the plane was late by about 15 minutes to takeoff, and we experienced more delay after that so that on arrival we were an hour delayed. Many missed connections in Vienna as a result. Crew seemed tense and on edge."
Pros: "Crew were polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Plane temperature was too hot, despite my repeated requests to the crew to lower the temp. No one on this flight opened a single blanket - was that the goal? It was too hot to even sleep."
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: "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: "First there were problems with the plane... then it got delayed... I missed my connecting flight... now it’s 2 am I have a wedding to get to in 4 hrs and I finally just arrived ."
Pros: "The service was superb!"
Cons: "The flight was too short."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. Austrian flight attendants were quite grumpy on this flight."
Pros: "Great airline, everything on time,exelent service, great staff, good food"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. 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: "Overall reasonable flight. Nothing to write home about"
Cons: "Breakfast was what I imagine prison food must be like. Rest of meals were fine"
Pros: "The flight was nowhere near full, which was terrific. The crew were excellent, polite and attentive. Everything was on time."
Cons: "I don't remember anything about the food."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing seating for a 12 hour flight was not comfortable."
Pros: "If you have to fly coach, this was the way to go. The star were lovely, plane clean, food was good. Very nice flight from LAX to Vienna."
Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "bad seating. you previously provided a comfort kit but discontinued it."
Pros: "On time boarding in Vienna and lending in Chicago."
Cons: "Not enough food for a long flight (only one poor meal was served during the entire flight)."
Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. Food was ick- "chicken" tasted like a grade d boiled chicken nugget, terrible texture. Ladies on flight were kind, although not terribly helpful. Movie selection was pretty small and lots of Rated R movies, hard to find anything in the middle (not kids, but not adult)."
Pros: "staff realy nice enough room for legs good food"
Pros: "The plane crew was really nice always there for my needs."
Cons: "The seats were uncortable my chair was very wobbly."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort was meh."
Pros: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "economy class eats sold as business class !!! very poor and cheap strategy --"
Pros: "Crew anf foid - great!"
Cons: "No room there. It was a nightmare for 12 hours. Never again with Austrian!"
Pros: "Good food, nice crew, nice screen, new plane"
Pros: "Crew friendliness."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Food, entertainment."
Cons: "Aircraft was older 777 and lavatories weren't very clean. Upon landing in Vienna, my mobility walker (tagged to be brought up to me at jetway) was sent to my connecting flight to Sophia. The flight crew refused to intercept it and have it brought up to me at the aircraft. To make matters much, much worse, the flight crew eventually gave up and left, leaving me LOCKED inside the jetway for over 30 minutes after calling for a wheelchair. The replentishment crew refused to let me out of the locked jetway. Only after the wheelchair arrived was I let out of the locked jetway. I was taken to the Austrian Airlines service center where I lodged a formal complaint. Supervisor/Rene refused to upgrade my seat in any fashion to compensate for my distress. He did, however, arrange for me to given access to the VIP lounge and then taken to my VIE-SOF gate. Had I had a shorter layover, I would have missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "I did my fligh because I was in the hospital I have send a mail to kayak and to the agent I have booked the flight with No one got back to me yet!!!!!!!"
Pros: "No unnecessary waiting. Excellent service!!!"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed leaving Sofia which made connecting flights for many people a rush and very stressful. People were pulled to the front of the plane and told to rush to catch their flights. My bag didn't make my connecting flight but Austrian delivered it 2 days later."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the entertainment was okay."
Cons: "It was impossible to make a seat reservation--impossible. When I asked Air Canada they said contact Austrian Airlines. When I asked them they said get in touch with United. Then I was told I could book a seat 24 hours in advance. When I got email I couldn't--said I had to do it at the gate. When I got to the gate I was told I had a seat in the middle of the plane. Not true I was at the back of the plane. Just awful"
Pros: "Glad to have coffee and sweet treat. Attentive and pleasant crew."
Pros: "Flight attendance were amazing Smooth flight Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized"

Cabin crew was terrific, even though they didn't come through the aisles enough between meal service to offer water or drinks. The quantity of video entertainment available was great, but the video screen was not good quality. Food served was sub-par for international business class. Absolutely no snacks were available between meal services, so i suggest bringing something in your carry-on. Most other airlines have some snacks such as small sandwiches, cookies, candy, fruit, or chips available for pickup at the gallery areas on intercontinental flights in business class.

Cons: "Food!"
Pros: "The crew was kind and attentive. The food and complementary drinks were satisfactory. There were many movie and television options."

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "Food was not good. Too salty."
Cons: "The most unpleasant flight attendants we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their training."
Pros: "The flight itself was great... A bit of turbulence, but otherwise quite comfortable. Crew and captain were excellent."
Cons: "The plane arrived 2 hours late, causing me to miss a train from Marseille to Nîmes, and costing me money for an extra night's hotel that I hadn't planned (Marseille), plus wasting money for the night at the hotel that I HAD planned (Nîmes), plus the cost of having to purchase an additional train ticket for the following morning. The $7 voucher at the airport was nice, but honestly doesn't come close to making up for the cost and inconvenience."
Pros: "This flight was 11 hours and I could have lasted another 2 or so hours."
Cons: "The lady who checks paperwork for animals at the front desk with Luftansa Airlines was uninformed and didn't know what she was doing as well as unnessarily rude. MY large dog was on this flight and after several employees had looked over my forms for him she came out nowhere and threatened to not allow my dog on board due to faulty and incomplete paperwork! I instantly went into a nervous condition of the sweats and scrambled to prove her wrong. When I asked again what was wrong with my (actually legitame paperwork) she just told me that at this point it didn't matter and that she would allow me to fly even though I was at risk of quarantine aty destination. I wasn't happy about this and asked again why there seemed to be an issue and she was unhelpful, handed me a business card for the USDA and told me that I was lucky to get away with her travel mercies for my dog. I had visited a USDA certified veterinarian and she hadn't given me the opportunity to prove this. I was confused and annoyed and while the other employees could see this about me, they apologized on her behalf. I really wish I had gotten this woman's name and work station so I could follow up with her and inform her on a few things. Other than that I love working with and flying Lufthansa airlines!"
Cons: "Hi"
Pros: "The service was good. The food was average. I liked the complimentary wine."
Cons: "They lost my bag. Huge problem."
Cons: "Couldn't checkin online. Had to wait in line for over an hour."
Pros: "Excellent :) Thank you."
