They let me board early in Istanbul as my leg has a plate and I have knee pain. The Asian woman at San Francisco checkin did not understand disabilities and seemed rude and disbelieving. It’s possible she is someone who does things of a suspicious nature, and thus sees others as suspect. I’ve had to tolerate constant pain for 12 years. Checkin should not be humiliating and hurtful.
The Turkey-dc leg was awesome. The Bangladesh-Turkey service could have been better. Smaller things. In the pack given, noticed there was no k95 mask. The US leg had it. The crew in the Bangladesh flight were also not the friendliest.
Great: service, food, embark, deplane Not great: constant, very long announcements Terrible: seat comfort
Long trip not enough snacks for the kids , crew are not very helpful
Pros: "Crew and service was wonderful even on a shorter flight"
Cons: "I have to wait 5 hours for a connection flight. I was not happy with. Other then that I had a great experience with Turkish Air lines"
Pros: "Nice plane , nice crew. Ok food , not as good as Sfo to Ist ."
Cons: "We left delayed as it seemed they were waiting for someone. Older 777 wich shows wear."
Pros: "Turkish continues to go above-and-beyond to provide all of its passengers with a quality experience. Meals were actually good (I opt for the Vegetarian offering) and Economy seats are perfectly fine."
Cons: "Both ground staff and inflight crews border on rude, but I choose to believe it's a cultural thing and not a corporate or personal failing. Really, it's a coldness more than anything. No warmth or empathy. Planes are showing their age, particularly in the seat monitors. Screens have dead zones with inoperative icons. Also, quite a few seats were literally falling apart. But, when you fly to more countries than any other airline, some wear-and-tear is to be expected."
Pros: "Overall flight was good. The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth, the entertainment was excellent. I would like to thank crew for their work"
Cons: "As a family it was a big disappointment that we got seated in a different row. The check in person didn’t even made an effort to put us together just suggested that we can ask to switch on a plane. Another big disappointment was food Please bring the food quality back"
Pros: "Sweet crew members"
Pros: "Everything was nice"
Pros: "Love flying Turkish, usually they’re very welcoming on the plane and flight attendants are friendly. Seats convert into a lay flat bed which is comfortable. i would say that the appetizers are usually excellent but the main dishes fall a bit behind. Amenity kit is pretty good."
Cons: "Boarding is a problem and I expect it’s a problem everyday. One has to go through many additional checks to board a NY bound flight which is understood but the gates can’t sccomod a full 777 flight. It gets hot really fast, definitely what you don’t need before a long flight. Group boarding is enforced but people will still try to wiggle into the priority boarding line. On another note I have had a similar flight on the A330 and the boarding process was smooth (organized)."
Pros: "I go economy. It's the most comfortable economy I've ever experienced. Every seat was filled."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Modern and comfortable planes, service was nice and friendly and the food was amazing which isn't very common when requesting a special meal."
Cons: "the passenger sitting next to me got drunk on 4 glasses of whiskey and was invading my personal space at some point he was even trying to touch me. I think he was allowed to drink to much which caused this issue"
Cons: "The Bus carried all passengers to the plane . There was No help or assistance available for Handicapped passengers We had to climb the stairs. The person in front of me had Only one leg to stand on and was using crutches to climb the stairs This was like a survival of the fittest test and a horrible Experience. The Airline should provide assistance at the Boarding stairs."
Pros: "Good time"
Cons: "long delay on the tarmac"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "The middle seat was cramped."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good and the flight attendants were very nice. They offered us small sandwiches and drinks during the flight so it was comfortable to fly with them."
Cons: "You need to buy a visa if you want to enter the country and they only accept USD, Euros or GBP. The only currency exchange is on the other side of passport control so you have to use one of the ATMs and they only give you $100. The staff is unprofessional and seems clueless when you ask them for help. The kiosks are a nightmare and working with them is worse than working with the people. They freeze, and glitch and many of them just flat out don't work. Probably one of the worst airports I've ever been to."
Pros: "The flight attendants are friendly and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We went through an additional 6 security check points between our connecting flight from Italy, after they said we wouldn't. I understand the precautions flying into D.C., however there was no posting of this, and they wouldn't let us use the bathroom at the airport. Also, the plane was very hot with little air flow. Loud crying children coughing everywhere, fresh air would be nice for the 11 hour flight."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by quality of what i would call "domestic" flight..."
Cons: "I think Turkish airline need to bring a bit more organization in boarding (it felt like original Southwest boarding process -- first come/first served or get in queue and hurry up wait (depending on one's point of view)..."
Pros: "Missed the flight due to delayed flight coming into Muscat."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to delayed flight coming into Muscat."
Pros: "Flight was very punctual (actually early enough to cause problems with being collected on arrival), despite being full, there was ample space. The food was very edible, brings service was sufficient and the crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The gate was a good 15-20 minutes walk from the main duty free area of the terminal with not much signage indicating this. The touch function on my inflight entertainment screen lagged a bit and there was no USB charging offered"
Cons: "Very bad customer service It will be my very last flight with them"
Cons: "In Istanbul, wheel chair facility was not provided. Wheel chair facility was there with itinerary."
Cons: "Flight canceled"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The food wasnt good .."
Pros: "The food was amazing."
Pros: "Good food. Great service."
Cons: "Small leg room. Display of entertainment system was poor quality."
Pros: "very comfortable and plesant"
Cons: "I've flown Turkish Airlines for years, and in the recent months I've noticed the thing I really loved about them- their service, food and beverages, have gone down. The quality and availability isn't what it was 3 or 4 years ago."
Pros: "I liked the food and the Entertainment on board. The board crew was friendly and had always a smile."
Cons: "The crew wasn't able to speak in German, even though they spoke perfect English."
Pros: "I had heard that Turkish Airlines was very reputable and I'm glad it proved to be true! The Turkish food was nice, the in flight entertainment was great, the plane/ bathrooms were kept clean, the plane was full but not overpacked, even the kids got a "kids pack" :) Overall they showed that they were a good quality airline! My 14 hr flight was very comfortable"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "Boarding process was delayed and there were no updates to tell us about it. I was feeling ill and asked a crew member for water she told me she would run and get it and I saw her walking around for 45 minutes before I asked her again and it took her another 30 minutes. In that time I watched her fulfill requests for headphones and other unecessary items. We were sat directly behind a screaming baby and directly in front of 3 wildly misbehaving children for the entire 10 hr flight. The crew allowed the family behind us to sit 5 people to the 4-person row, including a 7-year old sitting on the mom's lap who kicked seats and pulled my hair over the top of the seat. I recognize that misbehaved children are not the fault of the airline but it seems like in the future grouping families with children together might be a resolution. We went 10 hours without sleep because the kids kept kicking our seats and sticking their feet through our armrests. The airline also offered zero vegetarian food options for this flight (unlike others which offered pasta). We went 10 hrs having eaten a single bread roll and a bowl of pudding. After these two flights I'll likely never fly Turkish again."
Pros: "Good entertainment, USB charging for phone"
Cons: "Bad seats, not very comfortable."
Pros: "Ecellent food, service on board, on time departures,"
Cons: "Huge Plane and only 3 WC"
Pros: "Loved the food and crew--top notch."
Cons: "All was good."
Cons: "There seemed to be no check in which confused me a little. The luggage pick up was more of a zoo than usual and plenty of suffocating dust from construction while we waited."
Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."
Pros: "The planes were clean. Ground staff was nice. I am comparing my in flight experience with emirates and qatar which may be unfair for Turkish. The flight was better than flying one of our domestic carriers like delta or united but not up to mark with emirates or qatar."
Cons: "The over all seat pitch was low and seemed very cramped for a long journey. Food was hit or miss. On two different legs of flight we had a good service from Ist to was but below average service from Bon to ist. Connection in ist airport was scary - too many flights arriving at one time, people lining up outside the airport mad literally pushing their way to get in. In today's tunultous time this seemed extremely unsafe as far as airport safety. I would not travel Turkish till they extend/ update ist airport which is supposed to happen in 2 years."
Cons: "Kool airline"
Pros: "The service was very respectful and friendly."
Cons: "My volume didn't work at the seat I was sitting at"
Cons: "Always same food each time bad experience"
Everything went very smoothly.
This was a code share operated by United with a 787. Don't care for the herringbone 2-2-2 seating in business, many other carriers have gone to a 1-2-1 which is better. Food wasn't much better than economy but what really counts is lie flat seats.
Cons: "More food"
Pros: "yes, seat is always ok , I'm not overweight"
Cons: "basically, nothing, just keep smiling"
Pros: "The crew was very responsive. The seat requires real improvement. Austrian can provide bette seat than the allowed minimum."
Cons: "Food and seat comfort."
Pros: "The seat i got was great"
Cons: "There was a delay"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Hi am happy"
Pros: "They vere OK!"
Cons: "Food and drinks!"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable. Crew was great."
Pros: "Amazing flight , crew excellent , good food. Definitely I will travel again with Austrian Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew and ground crew worked VERY quickly and efficiently to deal with a broken plane and switch us all rather seamlessly to a replacement plane. Impressive."
Cons: "1:20 min delay for a 35 min flight (less then 200km on the road). It is even worse if it is during the night (aircraft landed at 0:40 instead of 23:20"
Pros: "It was all fine, a bit cramped, but otherwise fine"
Cons: "I had only 40 minutes to board my connecting flight to Vienna, had to run through two sets of security gates and one immigration and a long walk - at 64, I almost didnt make it, and was the last one to board huffing and puffing!"
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."
Cons: "The 34 minute flight was delayed by almost 2 hours."
Pros: "That we landed in the end"
Cons: "More communication to passengers when there are so big delays (almost 2 hours)"
Pros: "Space, happy vibes, clean"
Cons: "Nothing it was super"
Cons: "Staff is not friendly, does not offer assistance or ask if you need anything."
Pros: "It was better with the earache, plane felt cleaner, the crew was more friendly and attentive. Didn't feel as dark as the first flight."
Cons: "The Star Alliance flights aren't that cheap. Comparable price between Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS and Austrian. Lufthansa gives you food, and has friendly service. SAS gives you coffee and tea. On Austrian and Swiss I didn't get anything. For same price range and same alliance, that is a point I keep in mind. Now I mainly try to get onto Lufthansa flights (or Turkish Airlines which is my favorite). Even on Aegean, I got better food, and the magazine was better, plus there were some monitors to track the flight. Austrian feels cheaper than the others. That is the main point I didn't like."
Pros: "Clean and new planes. On time."
Cons: "On the transatlantic flight the crew was unattractive and somewhat rude. They skipped our entire row serving morning refreshments and then complained and tried to shame us all for calling them back. Food quality was on par with Alegent Airlines. We even got charged for one piece of checked luggage 46lb on a international flight. That was a first!!!"
Pros: "Quick boarding decent legroom"
Cons: "Breakfast was not great"
Pros: "On time take off"
Cons: "They serve non-halal food with Muslim menu. They think hat non-pork meat means halal/zabihah. Non friendly flight crew"
Pros: "Check in at gate easy and boarding on time. Equipment seemed modern and in good condition."
Cons: "Seats seemed smaller and more narrow than usual. Food in economy terrible. Entertainment program available but crew did not offer earphones needed to use programs."
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: "Almost every thing was very good"
Cons: "My selection in pasta... was not bad but it was bit dry other than that no complains....thanks for save trip."
Pros: "food was great. Slightly cold in cabin."
Cons: "had a narrow connecting flight VIE to MUC, VIE flight was delayed and had to catch MUC to IAD flight in less than 15 min. One luggage was missing at baggage claim, but as DC/ Baltimore is home, luggage arrived in 48 hrs. All is well that ends well."
Pros: "it was mess, so I cant say positive thing"
Cons: "Well, it was all messed up by kayak and priceline. I clearly stated in your search engine I want flight with checked baggage, for which you gave me results. What a unpleasant surprise at check-in to find out it was super expensive airticket with only 8 kg of carry on! You are confusing people on purpose, I cant believe your service! And I was loyal customer for years and years. Well, time for change."
Pros: "On future flights to Europe, I always will choose Austrian Air. Very courteous service. Thanks!"
Pros: "Flight schedule, boarding management"
Cons: "No WI-FI service during my return flight, limited options for tv news programs."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "All was well"
Cons: "I remember a time when these flights had entertainment on them..."
Cons: "No food terrible idea to serve orange, oll dos nasty hands Stick to a site"
Pros: "Safety, timeliness, friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Entertainment is outdated"
Cons: "While going to the gate G11 at Vienna airprt, i slipped infront of the gate in presence of 3 male austrian airways staff who were checking there. After i got up i requested if i could get some water and they said they cannot. Finally a co passenger gave me her bottle of water. I ended up actually breaking my leg"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff"
Cons: "GET AN AGREEMENT WITH GLOBAL ENTRY"
Pros: "My flight to SJJ was rescheduled for the day later. However, Austrian ground services provided efficient service and support in finding suitable accommodation at the Vienna Airport."
Cons: "Food part was missing."
Cons: "I wanted to buy an checked-in luggage, but Austrian site did not worked properly, repeatedly gave an error message. I ended up buying it at the counter desk, in the airport, at a much higher price."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lateness and virtually no food at lunchtime"
Pros: "Very organized airline. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Everything was nice and smooth. It was on time and the crew they were very nice and very good entertainment."
Pros: "I fly this route on Austrian 5 times a year, and I nearly always choose Austrian because it hast the overall best 'package' - a comfortable plane with excellent sleeping seats in business class, the best airline food in the world from Do & Co, the nicest staff that really cares about your well being and the quickest connection between Bangkok and Vienna."
Cons: "The entertainment program is a bit slim, to my taste - but I'm not a big consumer of inflight movies, as I prefer to get more sleep when I fly. When compared to the entertainment program on Singapore Airlines, for example, Austrian's own can't really compete."
Pros: "Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Rude gate agent. Small seats, no leg room, very crowded together. Clearly a budget airline - should be marketed as such."
Pros: "Staff, seats (exit)"
Cons: "No screen,no entertainment, the food was very bad even for airlines food, for a 4 hours flight cancel the food and make a cheaper flight."
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: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "First fight was canceled to Vienna diverted to Turkish air to flight into Turkey. In the US was diverted to Milwaukee for 2 hours after already being on a 12 hour flight. Then missing our landing time in Chicago by 5 hours."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Cons: "It was advertised as Austrian Airlines but when the details came through afterwards only then did it state that it was a United Airlines flight. So, I can't rate this flight because it had nothing to do with Austrian Airlines. You need to update your site so that it clearly states "Operated by..." when people are booking."
Pros: "Excellent service"
