Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "With the coronavirus breakout it was better if they pass disinfectant wipes especially before meals"

Cons: "Cos it's terrible on lufthansa"
Pros: "Overall good service, only complain is the business class seats."
Cons: "business class seat would have been better"
Pros: "Service, etc was great"
Cons: "There was so little leg room on the transatlantic fight that I could not even cross my legs in front of me. And I am a petite woman. My poor husband (thin and tall) could barely fit in his seat"
Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."
Cons: "Bus shuttle to plane"
Pros: "Food and service were good"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late to board and it was very crowded, so we ended up leaving an hour late (but made up most of the time)."
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Pros: "Lots of room on a 747 - Lufthansa will probably retire them all soon. They handled my special meal request online and loaded the meals on the plane."
Cons: "The crew didn’t bother to confirm who had requested the special meals, and they perhaps were confused by the size of the wide body rows, so they served my dinner to the passenger in the window seat (seat K) instead of me (seat H) By the time I realized what had happened, my row mate had eaten half the meal. The crew also rammed my knee with a beverage cart while I was dozing. Not the best showing ever..."
Pros: "Seat and service on board"
Cons: "It was difficult to watch the movies. Some of them were stuck and couldn't be played. Only after a while they "unlocked"."
Pros: "We had a problem in Germany. My daughter left her passport on the plane. Everyone was very helpful and found it. And got it back to us."
Cons: "The flight boarded late, and very slowly, and took off late as a consequence. Thus, landing late. The inflight entertainment is only accessible with aps that you need to download before you get on the plane, when, of course, you don't know you need them. A remarkably illogical process."
Pros: "The airplane was clean. Lots of storage space."
Cons: "The entertainment screens in our row of seats were not working. The crew did find seats we could move to if we wanted to watch movies. Made two phone calls to the airline prior to my scheduled trip to attempt a seat upgrade but they told me I would have to do this at the airport where of course no upgrades were available"
Cons: "Thisnisnthe locationwhere my luggage got stuck"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and informative."
Cons: "Boarding process was the worst I've seen. Seats were too small and no space compared to other flights I've flown on similar routes (British Airways London-Amman & Paris-Amman). No tv's, entertainment system. You could download their system but need to buy wifi to access it. Will try to avoid Lufthansa's short haul flights in the future."
Pros: "bad service"
Pros: "Very friendly. Overall very pleasant experience."
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as other airlines."
Cons: "The kosher food was terrible!!!!"
Cons: "Lufthansa sharing code with United wasn't pleasant at all."
Pros: "Service, comfort, movie selections"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, and the food just fine. The entertainment options of movies or music or news were quite good."
Cons: "The first plane left too late to make the connection. The Lufthansa staffer who reorganized my trip considered two options and picked the best one. However, she didn't stress to me how far the next gate was at another terminal -- luckily I asked someone else who helped me get a bus. I am not fluent in German so that may have added to my uncertainty. And my suitcase, which she said she was making sure would get to me in Marseilles, did not come for 24 hours."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and the flight was pleasant.The schedule was very convenient"
Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"
Pros: "You disappointed me"
Cons: "No seating area at or near the gate we boarded at, and as boarding was delayed, many people ended up standing for some time because we did not wish to wander too far and then be late for boarding."
Pros: "The staff on my flight were the most friendly crew I have ever had on a flight. They were enjoyable to interact with and went out of their way to help guests. I also appreciate that they wake you up if you are asleep while meals are being passed out; I have missed meals on planes before which is not a great experience on a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The only negative aspect about the flight were that the seats were a little uncomfortable. There weren't any foot pedals to lift your legs and the seats were extremely close together which was uncomfortable on such a long flight."
Cons: "I couldn't use the entertainment pack because I didn't have it downloaded on my iPad. I was told to download it when we boarded onto the plain. But at that point i couldn't access wifi. The 7-hours flight could have been more memorable if I could access the entertainment pack."
Pros: "Crew was professional as always"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "Overall Austrian was fine. Smaller plane and people were professional."
Cons: "Certainly don’t expect the luxury of SE Asian or Middle Eastern airlines"
Pros: "The crew. The punctuality."
Pros: "crew was great ,seats was better than good"
Pros: "For short flight the seats are ok with space for the legs"
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes delayed"
Pros: "They DID NOT let me aboard the airline!!! Austerian airline is the worst EVER, because they are not even helping me to get a credit to fly Monday to Israel. The of ticket counter at ORD were treating me as a dirt. And unwelcome. I was trying to reason with them, they did NOT want to help."
Cons: "It would have been better if back to back with priceline helped me out to get to another flight & they won’t even credit my ticket, so I LOST about $1200 & was excited for my vacation. They were unhelpful & they kept putting me untold & hanging up on me with their ticket agency on phone too."
Pros: "The boarding process was short and quick. Entertainment choices were excellent."
Cons: "I was hoping for a more traditional Austrian meal but the food was just fine."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "The flight was short: 4 hours. It was in time, etc. Certainly no entertainment."
Cons: "After the breakfast (rather poor) no drink was suggested. There was a cup for tee or coffee. Empty one. After the breakfast they just took it away with other dirty dishes. It happened to all passengers in my neighborhood."
Pros: "The flight staff was very attentive, professional, and polite. It seemed like they were always bringing the passengers things like snacks and drinks. We never felt like we needed anything. This was my first time flying to Europe and flying with Swiss. I will definitely choose them again!"
Cons: "I really can’t think of anything I didn’t like!"
Pros: "On time and amazing flight crew! SO attentive and personal...seemed to really enjoy their job."
Pros: "I liked that the plane eventually came..."
Cons: "That the plane was an hour late..."

Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Pros: "no complaints"
Pros: "The flight in General. Small space with a large audience make things smaller. It's not a flight where one can relax. Grueling."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a sandwich and yogurt. Is this standard Austrian Breakfast?"
Pros: "Organized orderly boarding. Food was snack only. Flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Ground crew was very kind"
Cons: "My ordered vegetarian meal was missing on the way back :("
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "bad seating. you previously provided a comfort kit but discontinued it."
Pros: "Good service on time arrival"
Pros: "flight was fast and we came into a gate instead of having to come into terminal by bus. Left on time an arrive early"

Cons: "Rudest flight attendants I've ever witnessed. No food or drink for six hours. Bad entertainment selection."

Pros: "Emergency exit row leg room. Good stuff."
Cons: "Flight time, slightly delayed departure."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was OK"
Cons: "The flight from Budapest to Vienna was delayed so we missed our connection to Tel Aviv. The behavior of the ground staff who were supposed to assist us was outrageous. They behaved like a low cost company with one answer to any request, and this is the word "NO". It does not seem logical that we ever go with Austrian again. We do deserve a compensation for the delay and the behavior."
Cons: "Boarded via stairs, requiring going down stairs to the tarmac, then up the boarding stairs, carrying our bags."
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean. Very friendly crew."
Pros: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Pros: "Everything was great except seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Behavior of AA"
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: "It was pretty chilly on the flight throughout the entire way. Please use more heat next time. Thank you!"
Pros: "The B-767 is far superior to the B-777 in comfort; it is not so horribly crowded."
Cons: "Austrian check-in at VIE was a disaster. None of the machines could read my passport; and when you entered the data by alternative methods it STILL required a machine to read the passport--which it exactly what they were unable to do. Thus, it was a circular Catch 22. I went through six different lady agents working my way through the system, until they finally took my bag and let me go. They themselves said it was new to them and they did not fully grasp how it worked and they did not know why it did not accept me. SOFTWARE PEOPLE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD."
Pros: "in this case, nothing"
Cons: "1.15h delay - sitting in full air craft without aircondition cold, not profi behavior no please, no sorry, no "what would you like..." none nice word"
Cons: "My luggage was lost again It is the second time in a row that happens"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "best blanket any business class."
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Pros: "I liked the extended leg room in front row of economy class."
Cons: "A couple of the flight attendants were rude to people on the jet. They seemed agitated and annoyed."
Cons: "I can't believe they charge extra to reserve a seat. Just charge an honest flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was plentiful. Impressive library of movies."
Cons: "The noodles for breakfast were way overcooked and tasted awful."
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "More comfortable seats. Insulated windows-the window cover was so hot I could not touch it."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. The seats were ok but for a 12 hour flight nothing would be perfect."
Cons: "I think it went as well as possible. No delays in boarding and only short delay waiting for a gate at SFO. The flight crew were very friendly and drinks and food were adequate."
Pros: "New seats are excellent"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."
Pros: "All was perfect!"
Cons: "The plane did not have screens at the seats for an 8 hour flight. The Wifi app to watch films worked on and off. The crew weren’t the friendliest. The seats barely reclined. Would not recommend this flight."
Cons: "United first class - no food"
Pros: "Flight Attendent, crew and aircraft"
Cons: "Had to wait 35 minutes for luggage at Bradley. Poor"
Pros: "Plane was one and a half hours late out of SF to Newark. Had to fly standby to Boston instead of Providence. Had to take a bus to Providence, was exhausted, and cost twenty six dollars with the driver from hell. Asked United for an aisle seat so my right leg could stick out. Bad right knee. They stuck me on the left aisle instead. Was in agony the whole flight."
Cons: "Read above."
Cons: "Carmel waffle cookie"
Pros: "Boarding flight was orderly. For some reason there was a lot of passenger patience waiting in boarding lines."
Cons: "Checking in (self checkin to obtain baggage ticket) was terrible simply because United separated first class and economy areas. There were few if any signs directing passengers to the proper area. The areas were as far apart as they could be, straddling the security entrance. United was extremely busy at the time. Waiting in line for a kiosk only to be told it was first class only was inexcusable."
Pros: "Flight was held so late connections could be made. Staff was very attentive. Ground staff as well."
Cons: "Luggage was left in Denver and needed to be retrieved late the next night. Very upsetting."
Cons: "Windows were dirty and that's looking for something. Lol"
Pros: "The flight was fast."
Cons: "The flight attendant was an angry person. Her attitude was appalling."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The cell phone plug did not work and was not easy to find. I didn’t like having Direct tv monitor on during the whole flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants and other crew work long, hard hours, and I appreciate them greatly, particularly those who have enough self-awareness to be honestly gracious and friendly (as opposed to plastic smiles). I did not get this young woman's name, unfortunately, but everything about her work was exemplary. Thanks!"
Cons: "Everything was just fine."
Cons: "My flights got changed and seat assignments changed so I did not get xtra leg room as I needed Also united did not know that I had a service dog even though I booked with that information"
Pros: "Free entertainment!"
Cons: "I called about changing my travel dates to later dates and they wanted $200, each direction, to change them. That's more than it cost to buy the later tickets, outright. In other words, the message from United is: "How about we keep your money *and* we fly someone else in your seat (because we overbook)?". Okay... how about I never fly on your airline, again."
Pros: "Acommodating ground crew."
Pros: "Price was fair. Wait times weren't exceedingly long."
Cons: "Leg room was terrible, no working outlet, food options were garbage."
Cons: "1 hr+ delay out of Newark"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight Bc it was delayed."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Flight left late"
Pros: "Stroopwafel and efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Very tightly packed seats; flight attendant complaint about collecting trash from outside vendors. I guess the obvious alternative is just to leave it in the seat!"
Pros: "free wine"
Cons: "av system was non-operable for the flight. wifi did not work either. also this option for "personal entertainment" using your own device is a total sham. United Airlines is terrible. Planes are old and cramped. The boarded process is like a cattle call. DO NOT FLY UNITED!!! I thought I was flying Lufthansa but it was a bait and switch situation."
Cons: "The HI Ag questionnaire: why? what value?"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "We boarded then sat! There was too much fuel from the previous flight so we had to sit while they unloaded some."
Cons: "Flight 5022 was delayed 1 hr leaving SBP due to flight arriving late. Very little info was relayed by airline staff about the reason for or details of the delay. This delay caused me to miss my connection in SFO and be rebooked to a later flight, which was also delayed over an hour."
Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"
Pros: "Nothing. The experience was terrible. 7 trips back and forth to SLO Irport to try to get home to Palm Springs. 3 days attempt. Cancelled and delayed."
Cons: "Didn't like anything."
Pros: "Trip and treatment were ok... but tv is way expensive. Avianca offers you a wide range of movies and tv series for free."
Pros: "Nice people."
Cons: "No entertainment. The snacks tasted old and I wasn't even sure what some of the things in the mix were. The flight seemed really long."
Cons: "Pretzels as an only option."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Boarding agent abused me. Made me walk to plane on tarmac in stocking feet. Asked for wheel chair and was denied. Have congestive heart failure and could hardly make it on the plane. The man should be fired. Deputy sheriff with him was just as bad glad to go into more detail with someone. Will report united to govt. small Airport would not ever be reorder."
Cons: "II spent $502.20 on a flight that ended up a complete disaster, ultimately costing me even more money to fix. UA411 ORD -> LAX -> SBP ORD - LAX take of was delayed. After landing we sat on the tarmac without explanation for about an hour, which caused me to miss my connection to SBP. I ran the ridiculous gate change distance through the airport and arrived 1 minute prior to scheduled take-off and was not allowed to board. They left behind at least 8-9 passengers (that I saw) that were also delayed from the ORD-LAX flight – this is probably 1/3 of the flight. It's absurd. I then waited in the Customer Service line for 30 mins and was told I have to go online to request my flight credit for the flight I wasn't allowed to board. I was also told to request a credit for the rental car that I had to arrange last minute online. United did absolutely zero to assist. The next flight out wasn't until after 11am the next day, which caused me to miss a prepaid event, which was the entire reason for my trip. I had to drive over 3 hours in the middle of the night arriving 5am the next morning due to United Airlines' incompetence."
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Cons: "It was very crowded"
Pros: "They gave us free entertainment"
Cons: "We took two hours in taking off"
Cons: "Ana flight attendants are the best!!! Excellent service cheeers"
Pros: "On time boarding, nice crew."
Cons: "No free food, not a lot of options of free drinks"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."
Pros: "I like how easy it was to check luggage and boarding passes quick service"
Pros: "The crew were excellent. They made up for the hassle of changing terminals at the last minute."
Cons: "When all of the passengers and crew are at the listed gate well before boarding and the gate is changed to a different terminal it adds a lot of stress to the situation. To the crews credit they did not let it effect their professional attitude. I was highly impressed by the employees of the airline to keep things on time and positive. Overall that made the difference between being a bad experience and becoming one of the best flight experiences I have had in years. This flight crew should be considered an example of how to treat customers well."
Pros: "I EVENTUALLY arrived at my destination."
Cons: "A whole series of delays that landed me at my final destination over 8 hours late! I lost my hotel booking and had to arrange for pick up well after midnight!! Miserable."
Pros: "The crew and staff worked hard to please. The new attendant did her job very well and we all celebrated her final training flight."
Cons: "Unacceptable warm temperature on flight from San Luis obispo to lax. It made the time very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I specifically booked my trip based on a 6 HR travel time. Because I was re-routed, it tacked another 4 hrs onto my trip time. I could have driven to where I was going for a fraction of the cost. It's so frustrating to fly now a days, the massive crowds, grumpy airline workers and delayed flights. I'm going to start driving more... Sick of the hassle with commercial flights."
Cons: "You guys robbed me"
Pros: "Great crew attitude, food very nice, aircraft clean and comfortable, everything on time."
Cons: "I hadn't understood that the seating was 2-2-2 in Business. I was happy that the seat next to me was empty, but would not have liked it if it had been occupied. I wonder if they've done this to preserve some benefit for Furst Ckass passengers. I'd rather fly BA or Air Canada in business fir this reason."
