Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew helped us move into a row that had an extra seat thus making the journey for us and our neighbours comfortable."
Cons: "More food service would be helpful. There were limited snacks(mostly containing chocolate or candy - which I did not prefer) and only bananas as fruit. Could have used oranges or apples for the kids."

Cons: "Emirates has great service and food. Highly recommend if you can handle a Dubai layover"

Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."

Cons: "wait for baggage was way too long. Unacceptable."

Pros: "- Friendly crew, they managed to get my wife and I to sit together against all odds - Seats are more comfortable than other A380 configurations"
Cons: "- Crew's organization was confusing and all meals and services got surprisingly long to complete. - Most of the time there were no drinks available for passengers to grab and go, and you had to ask specifically even to get water. - Outside of the scheduled meals, there were very few passes to offer drinks to passengers - Entertainment system had great choices but the system ran with lag and lost frames every few seconds (not only in mine, but rather across the cabin)"

Pros: "Good entertainment, spacious seating and a friendly staff."
Cons: "The boarding process takes longer with the Airbus 380 and the flight from Dubai to SFO is delayed very often. Staff at the airport could provide timely updates about the delay and the boarding process. I would like to see more options in the raw Vegetable diet as I got the same food for Lunch and dinner"

Pros: "Staff was great. Dealt with new lack of electronics fairly organized for such a sudden thing. Food and flight were good."
Cons: "This isnt a complaint about screaming babies. They dont know any better. But kids that are 3-6 or so? They shouldnt be screaming for hours, kicking seats and the plane window, ignoring and talking back to flight attendants etc. What terrible parents.

Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"

Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."

Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."

Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"

Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."

Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"

Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."

Cons: "Check-in counter staffs in Dubai are poorly trained and do not have service-mind at all."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "I liked that it was a straight flight from SFO -ZRH. On board entertainment was great."
Cons: "Seating is way to tight. Service from crew is nothing at all like it used to with Swiss. Nearly a smile from crew ( both legs of flight) mostly just hand motion when serving food. Food was a big disappointment too. It feels like all the good service is reserved only for business and first class !"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"

Pros: "Amazing crew/ food/seats very comfortable! Very relaxing ride !"
Cons: "It was perfect !"

Pros: "most of the flight attendants were excellent except one particular one who was basically yelling at passengers. she had a a logo or a badage on her that identifies her as a manager or a crew lead. she had poor manners and need major improvement"
Cons: "the seats are small and very small space in comparison to Lufthansa"

Pros: "On board is pretty good except that the seats are pretty narrow compare to our previous experiences. As a reference, I am 5‘3“ and 110 lbs."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the seats were narrrow."

Cons: "I wanted to get some work done on my flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."

Cons: "Terrible movie selection"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"

Pros: "good availability of food"
Cons: "seats did not have much space at all. Legs constantly squished and there was no room to move them the whole trip. not much movie selection available."

Pros: "All of the flight crew was personable and ready to accommodate any need we might have. Before we could ever get hungry, the staff was coming down the aisle with another serving of pretty good food!"
Cons: "We did have to wait on the plane for an hour after boarding, but I believe that was mostly due to wind."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable considering they were middle seats. The food was quite good and the entertainment selection was also good."
Cons: "Boarding was later than initially said and I did not know why"

Pros: "Although sitting in a plane in coach could never be considered a wonderful experience, Swiss Air did the most to make it so. in particular the crew was very responsive and cheerful. The leg room wasn't bad and they were very liberal with their wine and beer offering."

Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."

Pros: "Several rounds of beverage service along with tasty food and a great large-display entertainment, we were very pleased with the blankets and entertainment, and frequent service. It helped we had 3 seats for two people also."

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Terrible seats :-("

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was difficult to see when the person in front of me reclined because the screen was not perpendicular to my line of vision. I survived based on the other qualities of the flight."

Pros: "The service is the best!!! I enjoyed everything!!"

Pros: "The flight from SFO to ZRH was in a newly fitted 777. The seats were very comfortable and we had plenty of leg room in economy class. Great and extremely nice flight attendants - thank you!"
Cons: "The flight from ZRH to SFO was in an older 777 and the seats were very uncomfortable with limited leg room in economy. This flight was not very enjoyable. I have to say though that the very friendly and helpful flight attendants were compensating for this. Thank you!"

Pros: "Great service and flight. Thank you kayak for the great price!!"

Pros: "Service ok"
Cons: "Horrible food, tvs didn't work, crowded."

Pros: "The veggie food option was delicious. The calzone for breakfast was miserable. The restrooms were kept clean and well-stocked. Flight delay to wait for incoming passengers resulted in others missing their connections in SF."

Pros: "my wife needed a wheelchair, so we were whisked between terminals. but if we had had to negotiate that long distance by ourselves we would probably have missed the connection because there was only an hour layover and the distance between gates was great"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The Swissair website did not have my information available. Stood next to Passport Control for an hour (!) for a glitch they couldn't resolve before boarding. Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable with the space"

Pros: "Courtesy of crew."

Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. The seats were too small. It was torture for a 12 hour flight. Need more space and padding in the seats."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew was friendly but rarely came through Offering water during a 12 hr flight Also did not enforce "shades down" during the The night And did not respond to call lights"

Pros: "Service is above average, flight attendants very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Only one choice of the lunch dishes was available, since they had run out of the second one."

Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Overall this was an average international flight. But the crew and food made up for all the short comings. One of the most amazing crews I have ever experienced....and food was surprisingly delicious...even ice cream. they visited frequently with water and tea. We're friendly accommodating and fun everything that you want in a crew."
Cons: "Cramped coach seats and pretty boring movie selection.The double checking and multiple lines at boarding was a ridiculous but perhaps it's required"

Pros: "Ft"
Cons: "The lack of food choices. Even if you must buy them tgere should be choices"

Pros: "Nice smooth flight, good service, comfort, food, crew, and entertainment. Crying toddlers made it hard to sleep."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "Loved the entertainment. Food was great!"
Cons: "There was no indication of what line went where while in the boarding process. Nobody told us that we needed to get a blue stamp (??) on our boarding ticket, for what I still don't know. So then we needed to get in ANOTHER line and get the stamp and then stand in line AGAIN just to get on the plane! For being Swiss you'd think you'd have this part down AT LEAST! Boarding by seat number would have been a better idea. Everybody was all over the place getting their bags stored above."

Pros: "Excellent Amount & Quality of Asian Vegetarian Food"
Cons: "Due to a glitch in the webstei, I was unable to check in online, and therefore did not get a window seat for an 11 hour flight - very frutrating and uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Small jet for transatlantic didn't allow for being able to walk, stretch and move about much during such a long flight, unlike larger airbus planes or larger Boeing planes. Why do airlines hire chefs then serve lousy food!? First meal was so so while wake up meal was really bad. Was so disappointed in Swiss Air so will not fly with them again. Great service doesn't make up for the noted disappointments. Spending a $2-3 more on food would have helped, but placing us in a long flight in such a small airbus plane just won't do!"

Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."

Cons: "seats not too comfortable, if seated right next to the toilet I should pay a lower fare!"

Pros: "Food."
Cons: "Not working screens in the plane in my area, gate full of smoke coming from a smoking lounge without a place to buy coffee or food, not civilised stewards (I saw them jumping through fences to skip some part a line at the airport in US). Also the seat in front of me was stretching out more than mines and I was squeezed."

Cons: "I was charged $65.00 for checked luggage; my layover was only 50 minuets and had to rush...last person to board."

Pros: "The crew performed their duties in a professional manner."
Cons: "We arrived late, but that was nothing compared to the horror I experienced with my connecting flight out of Frankfurt to Mallorca. I should get a refund."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The infotainment system could have been better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and the sound went out after 2 hours of use. Also my blanket was not clean."

Pros: "The crew is amazing, special food needs is covered and delicious, great service after all."

Cons: "Just deaiappointed"

Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, the lack of customer service is evident."

Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."

Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"

Pros: "Great departure time. Super comfortable even in coach."
Cons: "The second meal was a bit skimpy and not so tasty."

Cons: "The service"

Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."

Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"

Pros: "Spacious and quiet aircraft, lots of legroom in certain exit row seats. Friendly cabin crew. Compared to the loud and bumpy ride on the Lufthansa 747, the A380 was way better."
Cons: "Moderate delays at each end—waiting for transfer passengers delayed our departure half an hour. We made up the time en route but then sat on the tarmac at LAX because the gate was occupied. I think my seat mates missed their connection. They broke the handle on my rollaboard (checked due to stingy cabin baggage allowance)."

Cons: "Their computer terminals were down on the boarding area. Actually about 5 Boarding areas were down no one was available to give direction or answer questions until you got To the front of the line and many had to be sent then to a different line. Bad enough the terminals were down but not even close to German efficiency in handling the problem. Also several of the stewards were rather surly and short"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Pilots at Lufthansa are the best regarding landing and taking off. I like also a lot that lufthansa flies mostly with Boeing airplanes."

Pros: "It is so nice to flight on board a plane were the staff knows what to do."

Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."

Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Distance too far between gates for transfer"

Pros: "As usual, good customer service."
Cons: "I fail to see why Lufthansa is deliberately destroying their competitive advantage."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight attendant did not bring the wheel chair and take me to the bus where I waited too long and when I arrived to customs no wheel chair was there and I asked every officer there how to get the wheel chair no one helped after long time one officer called and the chair arrived and he transferred me to a cart the driver was very bad he did not help in seating me and I sit on the back with my carry on when he drives like crazy I fell on the floor screeming he stopped and place me in the front and he asked if I need a doctor I told him no I just need to catch my flight although I was hurt badly with a very big bruise and when I reach the gate the plane was gone and I have to wait for another flight to take me to San Francisco and from there to Los Angeles and I singed a paper that I don't want a doctor"

Pros: "On time-well organized!"

Pros: "The people behind me had made a tent to shade themselves. Main offenders of the heavenly light were those random people who would open their window. So I guess there is not much I want Lufthansa to do about that."
Cons: "Their needs to be a window somewhere for us center-of-the-plane people to take pictures"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "I had picked my own isle seat at purchase of ticket. Some how i ended up sitting middle row."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Being sick on the way back home from my Vacation!"

Pros: "Service was execellent"
Cons: "The entertainment system and charging didn't work but they did give me a voucher for 100 Euros to spend."

Pros: "THE VIDEO OF THE FLIGHT THE WHOLE TIME. THE SMOOTH SMOOTH FLIGHT. THE FOOD AND WINE. THE SERVICE."

Pros: "Very nice flight, very little if no turbulence food was decent just luggage took forever"
Cons: "Luggage wait was an hr other then that the A380 which is my favorite plane was amazing"

Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "I could not get any information in Moscow until arriving at the airport."

Cons: "1 hour between flights meant a very hectic transfer."

Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."

Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Pasta was so so."

Cons: "flight was late; food was not so great, lunch and dinner were the same; :-("

Cons: "At time confusion amongst the crew- received wilted salad- seemed the last rows had to take what was left over"

Pros: "This is how to run an airline. Ausgezeichnet!"

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

Pros: "NOT MUCH. LEFT, GOT THERE ON TIME. SMOOTH FLIGHT."
Cons: "SEATED, TREATED LIKE CATTLE. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE DUE TO NARROW SEATS. GAVE US TWO MIDDLE SEATS IN FOUR-SEAT CENTER. WANTED $35/EA TO PRESELECT SEATS, ONE-WAY. NEVER AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT....."

Pros: "Comfortable and smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service,entertainment, and food. Easy check in"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. No air vents in new aircraft so difficult to sleep."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "short hop--good"

Cons: "overall service"

Pros: "Everything worked like an expensive Swiss watch! Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful! I will fly with Lufthansa again and again!!!"

Pros: "Being seated in econmony plus. Everything behind the scenes that i didn't see that made this flight safe. Very thankful. Didn't matter that not enough coffee was onboard for breakfast."
Cons: "The selection and range of music could be improved, or may be it is just my taste within the genres on offer."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work for many passengers, and had to be continually reset, and sometimes still did not work. When it did aorkX it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Also, the USB and electrical outlets near the seats did not work and power devices"

Pros: "missed my connecting flight to hawaii, Lufthansa, put me up in a room and feed me, thank you. Plus got me on the next flight out."
Cons: "if I could have got off the plane quicker I maybe could have made my flight. took 20 minutes to de de board"

Cons: "I started to get hungry between meals."

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

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: "Flight was relatively empty today, therefore boarding was smooth and easy. I had a row to myself.. Smoothest landing ever... just a lucky day"

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "The crew dropped the bottle to the head of my son."

Cons: "One hour late for take off..."

Pros: "good food, drinks, good entertainment options"

Pros: "Service was good and the crew was courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Online check-in did not allow me to select my seat. It was already assigned and didn't let me change it Boarding was later than scheduled and caused my connecting flight at O'Hare hectic This was the first time that I had ordered Kosher food and I would never make that mistake again, the meal was okay but the sandwich was awful and had no taste!"

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

Pros: "Both the Lufthansa crew and the well thought out layout of Frankfurt International made it a lot more comfortable to travel."

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive flight crew, nice entertainment options, food good for airline food."
Cons: "Never been more uncomfortable in a plane seat. I’m six feet tall and my knees hit the back of the seat in front of me. I would not fly this airline again for this reason."

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: "Absolutely fantastic service from the check in counter until deplaning. Delicious food, snacks & even wine & other alcohol included. The staff is super friendly & very tentative. It was really a treat to fly Austrian Airlines."
Cons: "This is just nit picking and if I absolutely had to I’d just hope for a more of a variety of movies, TV shows & music if possible."

Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."

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."

Cons: "Missed the connection because the flights were booked too closely together. Then had to wait 7 hours in the airport for the next flight. It only takes 4 hours to drive there but I don’t have a car."

Cons: "THey denied me and I lost all tickets including back trips as well. Nobody helped me to change tickets, they just care about money and reselling my tickets to other passengers."

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."

Pros: "Arriving alive. Attentive service was a nice bonus."
Cons: "I am alive. Everything else seems utterly petty (even the total lack of dancing monkeys!)"

Pros: "no complaints"

Pros: "all was good"

Pros: "Plane was half empty, so we could sleep on three middle seats"
Cons: "I would expect more (and better) food for 9 hour intercontinental flight"

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"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at the time we were suppose to board. We had to find another flight via Istanbul and got to our destination 6 hours late. Won't use Kayak again."

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."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Flight Attendants super friendly as well as ground staff in Salzburg."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."

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"

Pros: "The seat spacing was fair -- I'm 185 cm (6' 1") and I could sit normally. The crew were friendly and rather competent. The food was adequate. We were given several rounds of drinks, which is beyond what usually comes with budget travel."
Cons: "There was no entertainment except for a magazine; the food was not very sophisticated. I'm OK with both."

Cons: "It was late No food"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort was meh."

Pros: "Emergency exit row leg room. Good stuff."
Cons: "Flight time, slightly delayed departure."

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: "All was great"
Cons: "except we could not do an online check-in"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "We were advised to arrive at the gate 45 minutes before departure. We waited an hour and a half more until we boarded. The plane was late on arrival but there were no announcements. No one knew what was going on or when we would board. There was no food served whatsoever. Just beverages. There was no entertainment."

Pros: "Everything was great except seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "I used flights between Vienna and Prague several times and in most cases they are delayed."

Pros: "Crew anf foid - great!"
Cons: "No room there. It was a nightmare for 12 hours. Never again with Austrian!"

Pros: "So I had to fly to Munich, and rather than flying direct on terrible United, I took a connecting flight via Vienna. Flight was full yet still departed on time and even arrived early. The seat was comfortable and flight went very smoothly. Food served on board was perfectly edible. Disembarking also went without problems. The flight staff even accommodated the requests of a particularly nasty Russian family seated behind me even though they were total jerks. I was very impressed with their professionalism."
Cons: "Nothing. I will make a point of trying to fly via Vienna in the future. Airport is very pleasant and well run."

Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."

Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."

Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."

Pros: "The crew and the food were great!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable. You could tell the plane was a little dated. There was no WiFi and nowhere to charge your devices."

Cons: "Very cramped seat on the TGV train. I will definitely choose and pay a seat on my own next time, rather than accepting the on picked by Air France... And it will be cheaper, too!"

Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"

Pros: "The crew did its best to make up for the fact that the special meal I ordered was inedible."
Cons: "See previous"

Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent customer service"

Pros: "Not being charged for my first bag of luggage"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I really liked my seat, but it was one of the only ones that didn't have a USB port."
Cons: "See above. Overall, very nice experience."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class"

Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. I couldn’t have ask for anything better...pass on my praise to the flight crew of 0083"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My first flight was cancelled my return flight was delayed by 5 hours They made me check my carry on even though it was with in the size limit which cost 85 euros and when trying to ask why the staff was extremely rude and not helpful worst flight experience I’ve ever had"

Pros: "Leg space was great, food was delicious, alcohol served 3-4 times, and the in-flight entertainment was spectacular. I saw 4 movies and slept somewhat comfortably for once!"

Pros: "The entertainment has great selection. The crews were much friendier than the flight from SFO to Paris."
Cons: "The seat padding is rather thin."

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "The cabin crew was super patient and accommodating of the passengers."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"

Cons: "The food was cold. We were served about 40 minutes after most of the plane got their food. The overhead compartments kept opening by themselves through out the flight. Food was horrible."

Cons: "Separated me and my wife for the whole flight! Could not accommodate us together. This reservation was made over 6 weeks ago !!!"

Pros: "The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well."

Pros: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"

Pros: "Haven't flow with Air France for some time now and definitely noticed a lowering of standards"
Cons: "The gate changed 3 times and the terminal was very crowded. The staff seemed disinterested and distracted. The quality of the food has dropped dramatically."

Cons: "Leg space."

Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"

Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."

Cons: "Screen broke half way through flight. Food was poor"

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."

Cons: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"

Pros: "Food was excellent and crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not check in online before my flight and no zones to board just line up and go apparently."

Cons: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Cattle car accommodations"

Pros: "It didn't take longer to board! Crew with great attitude Take off and landing were just great"
Cons: "My sandwich, it contained too much pepper, I mean too muuuuuch My narrow seat No entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"

Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"

Pros: "The flight was good overall. Friendly crew good attention."
Cons: "There was a delay due to technical dificulties in previous flight. This caused a delay in take off and no AC while waiting in the plane for 40 minutes."

Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."

Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."

Pros: "You get everything you would expect in this kind of flight in term of meals, comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "The flight left half an hour late because of weather conditions. But it is more an airport issue rather than an airline one."

Pros: "No complain about Air France. The service and food are very good. Enjoy it."
Cons: "Our return flight is Milan--CDG--SFO. The transfer time at CDG is 1 hour. The line at CDG is incredibly long. We barely made it. IMPOSSIBLE for tax return. Very bad flight connection experience."

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "The "Czech Airlines" flight I purchased was actually an Air France flight number. When I arrived later than planned but still within good time, which was my fault, I reported to the Czech Airlines check-in (D2). This is very, very far from the Air France check-in (A2). No person and no sign was at Czech Airlines gate saying to go to Air France instead. By the time I determined what to do by talking ro the airport information booth and I walked to Air France instead of Czech Airlines (at CDG airport this is 5 minutes walking very fast speed on conveyor belts.. perhaps more than half a kilometer), I was past the boarding time limit, but the flight had not yet left. Then I could not print the boaring pass because of the time. When I asked an Air France employee for help, he simply said "you cannot board" and stood there smugly. He must feel great being a 25 year old who can turn people away from international flights at his own discretion to completely ruin their day especially when the plane is still on the ground. I have not even explained yet about the similarly awful experience I had when I booked the next flight (Czech Airlines at 09:45) for a much higher price (118 euro) and was not told that this Czech Airlines flight is "really" a Czech Airline flight. After paying much more to a Czech Airline person, nobody informed me to stay at the Czech Airlines area (2D) so I naturally went back to Air France since I had already had so much trouble. When I arrived there, of course, they tell me to go back to Czech Airlines and now I was again late. Thank God that I was able to confront a random trolley man who Kew where the Czech Airlines people were and try tried very hard to get me to the plane even though the boarding time was over. All in all, this was the worst travel experience of my life. I have now wasted 40 more minutes of my approximately 2.5 days in Prague to tell you this. I hope you consider it."

Pros: "Food was good, service was good, we also got little tube filled with French candies!"

Cons: "Flight was at 10:30pm. Waited at the gate from 9:00-10:40 with no news. Nobody knew what was going on or what we were waiting for. Finally at 10:40 they announced that the flight would be delayed, even though we had figured it out by then. At 11 the flight crew showed up. We finally boarded at 11:30 and we arrived an hour late to our destination. They offered drinks to the 2 people flying "business class" (they were just sitting in the front but amongst the economy class seats) at the very beginning, but then waited to serve everyone else, but as it was late, most people were already sleeping. We arrived an hour late."

Pros: "Paid to upgrade to larger seat. Food mediocre at best."
