Pros: "Always consistently good.."

Pros: "I wasn’t"

One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."

Pros: "The airline crew. Very attentive and immaculate"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "The crew was uninformed and unobservant to actual conditions in the cabin. They kept the air conditioning on and no one was available to address the situation. People started to take their winter coats out of the overhead bins and sit in their seats with coats on. They spent a significant amount of time repeatedly requesting that the window shades be moved up or down. Frankly, if I buy a window seat I should have the option to look out the window if I'm not disturbing my neighbors."

Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "No leg room"

My concern is if the passenger has a health problem he/she going to have a shortness of breath. The crew/staff who assist me excellent."

Pros: "the staff very friendly and helpfull and always there to answer questions they handle some nasty lady in front of us very politely and settle the situation"
Cons: "the seats to close and tigh feel like sardines in a can"

Pros: "I do however appreciate that the plane did wait for us"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and although my connecting flight did wait this was only because a large number of other people on that flight where not only on my flight but where coming in from other flights as well. this seems like really poor management and practice"

Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Pros: "Comfortable, accommodating and plenty of seat room for the long distance fight. Would fly Cathay Pacific again."

Pros: "The stewards worked very hard, the pilots did a good job. The food was good too."
Cons: "I think it's cruel that this company (Cathay Pacific) has bragged about these economy seats being comfortable. They are not !!! My back hurt and my knees were killing me because they have you crammed right up to the seats in front you so you feel like you are packed in a sardine can! And you will be in big trouble if you take a window seat and you need to go to the bathroom because then you must be a contortionist to get out of that seat when in flight and everyone has their seat reclined, just horrible!!!"

Pros: "crew members are friendly"

Pros: "I got food poisoning"

Pros: "Very Comfortable seats. Great service."
Cons: "Food could be a bit tastier."

Pros: "The efficiency of this crew was unparalleled"
Cons: "This was the least friendly crew I have ever encountered! Save one young gentleman, the crew was in such a rush to be efficient that the customer service suffered. The head stewardess was harsh, stressed and completely rude with both her staff and her crew. She snapped at several people during the flight and everyone was put on egg shells - not so comfortable for a 16hr flight"

Pros: "good experience."

Cons: "My original flight was canceled and switched to an earlier flight that I was not prepared to arrive on time for. After I paid the driver extra money to make the time the flight was delayed almost 3 hours and made me miss my connection from Hong Kong to Newark. I had to the spend the night in Hong Kong which was extremely expensive for both transportation and food and received no compensation for it. I also missed my train that I had booked and had to pay a price difference of 90 dollars for the change. This was one of the worst flights I've ever been on."

Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."

Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."

Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"

Pros: "Food was fresh and hot."

Cons: "Seat assignments were not honored. My husband and I were seated in two different rows even though we requested to sit together in an aisle and window seat and checked in the day before the flight This happened on all four legs of a trip to South Africa. Extremely narrow seats and little leg room. Felt like a cattle car. An aggressive woman with disruptive, screaming children was allowed to Torture passengers for a good five hours of the flight before the bursar finally moved her. This was after several hours of complaints from other passengers. She was eventually moved twice due to passenger complaints. The situation should have been handled after the first complaints which occurred two hours into the flight before the situation completely detiorated Food was terrible and meals ran out."

Cons: "12 hour flights in general not the most comfortable."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and took good care of everybody in general."

Cons: "Everything went smoothly."

Cons: "the person sitting next to me, barefooted the whole flight with nasty toes"

Pros: "On-time flights."
Cons: "Seems like Germans have perfected isolation of all passengers heading to the USA at the airport terminal. After passing 3 passport/boarding pass check points I attempted to buy some coffee in the shop near the gates. Again they demanded passport and boarding pass. I refused. I cannot resist a comment: "Welcome to modern-day Dachau experience!""

Cons: "I was nauseous during the plane ride walked to back of plane and was told I wasn't allowed to be back there. When that is where the bathrooms were. I asked for an extra pillow when there were 10 free seats the crew never honored my request. Not once did they ask if I was ok. The food was inedible. And I was completely uncomfortable the entire flight."

Cons: "The window seats are not comfortable like in other planes. The windows are too high, you don't see anything. The seat is too far from the window so you cannot lean towards it. For a 10 hour flight it was not comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent crew & service; enjoyed the special meal selections and the great movie options."

Pros: "New plane has nice wider seat."
Cons: "Letter size on In-Flight-Entertainment is too small. Units looked more like a tablet and some function seems missing or hard to find. Passenger needed to put on the foam piece to the headset. Hard to do as I broke both when trying."

Pros: "Service was so wonderful - very attentive crew."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The seats on my return fight were terrible! my knees were touching the seat in front of me. nehmen the person ahead leaned their seat back, I only had about 10" from my face to their seat. Terrible! Also difficult to watch a movie with the screen that close to your face; that's terrible on the eyes."

Pros: "Lufthansa flights was great as usual. Super Clean airplane, polite crew, entertainment selection was good, well functioning head rest design!"

Pros: "IT WAS ALL PRETTY GOOD"
Cons: "THAT I WAS IN COACH BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR AN UPGRADE"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, prompt service, smooth flight, clean airplane and the inflight entertainment was nice too. Love the cams on the airplane, to see what's going on outside"
Cons: "The de-icing took some time but obviously it's for everybody's safety, but it did delay us, as well as the ownerless luggage that had to be removed from the airplane. I do appreciate LH making safety their priority"

Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "Twice the choice between chicken and pasta - more variety bumpy landing after pre boarding no announcement that now general boarding"

Pros: "Food was actually daily good"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted to drop off sick passengers. 10 hours after being served lunch and after the sick passengers had disembarked, there was little update on the flight status and no update on passengers getting dinner. The crew did not hand out water or snacks in the duration but instead ate and drank themselves in the crew area. If you wanted to eat or drink you had to interrupt them, and specifically ask to have a glass of water. If as a flight attendant you are hungry or thirsty after not having anything for so long, it's a good assumption the other 250+ passengers are also. Very inconsiderate."

Pros: "They vere OK!"
Cons: "Food and drinks!"

Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline.

Cons: "Our luggage did not make it in a 2nd flight. We had to fill out many many many oaoers st Odessa airport It took 1,5 hours & our ride to hotel did not wait for us & left. Some other taxi driver gave ya a ride & charged ys $50 rather than $20 that ya the cost of our reserved ride. When we got to our hotel, we had to pay $20 for the transfer to hotel even though he left. Now we have no toothbrush or any change of clothes & hopefully we will get our luggage tomorrow after 2pm"

Pros: "I don’t like to use your site again Wanted change date to 5 June When I saw no reply I bought a new ticket from Opodo"
Cons: "You are bad not loyal Not reply to custom request Shame to you and will inform all people I know In loud my employees and customers Ivan Rosen irosen@a1.net"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Space between seats"

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"

Pros: "Highly efficient transfer (45 minutes between flights)"
Cons: "too short a time to transfer between flights as a very long distance between gates,"

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."

Cons: "I remember a time when these flights had entertainment on them..."

Pros: "The service. Very attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing!"

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: "i loved the food, the alcohol, the specialty coffees. i loved the service. i loved the lay down seat. i loved the entertainment."
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever. this was my best flight to vienna- or to europe."

Cons: "When our plane arrived late, many on board had missed connections. We received no help/guidance at gate, other than to be told to go up one floor. One floor up we had to go thru security to reach customer service. 100 people lined up for customer service from 3 Austrian airline reps. After 2 hours of standing, there were still 27 people ahead of me. The woman behind me gave me the local phone number for Austrian airlines and I was able to get on a flight to US leaving in 30 minutes. I managed to make it, and would not have had I waited another hour in line. Why no surge of staff to help? All 3 help numbers on my Lufthansa e-mail receipt could not help. Horrible experience."

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: "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."

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: "I will never travel with Austrian airlines again"
Cons: "My flight was cancel,then they transfer me to swees airlines they checked me in they took my luggage and then they told me I can't travel coz I can't make 2 stops inside the Europe. I have to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes to fine my bags . I went back and forth from terminal 1 and 4 many times.The changed my flight to turkey airlines and I wait 9 more hours at airport to check in again. Terrible experience ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️"

Pros: "I like the food , service and clean airplane."

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: "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: "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."

Cons: "Please change food, enough of pasta every time."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."

Pros: "Right on schedule!!"

Pros: "Short flight and the crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Loading of the bus to the terminal was slow only 1 bus was available."

Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "The transfer at Moscow airport is too slow. A huge jumbo jet of over 200 passengers gets re-checked only by two teams of security check assistants. Elderly and families are eager to pass the check-point as quickly as possible. And those guys in the airport are just not seeing the problem."

Pros: "It was a nightmare"
Cons: "It was a nightmare"

Pros: "Crew was nice very polite and helpful that is why excellent rating. Comfort was as good as that can be in economy class, very good food and decent entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit inconvenient as the plane was not at the gate and bus ride was used to access plane."

Pros: "Regestacion online"
Cons: "I am middle size person ,but size between chairs not enought"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst service, disgusting food, no organization, pettiness with measuring the size of a carry on (including the wheels) at JFK and charging $100 for international standard sized bags (less than 21.5 inches), racist behavior from the flight attendants against anyone who is not Russian, little to no communication with passengers, flight attendants started arguing with people for no reason"

Pros: "Crew were friendly Boarding was pleasant Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment was very hard to navigate and to follow"

Pros: "Was excellent"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "I travel quite a lot, domestically and internationally. Compared with United Airlines, which I use often, Aeroflot is way way better and ahead. For example, food alone, I can give 9 (in the scale of 10 with 10 being perfect) to Aeroflot, while I honestly think United deserves 1. In terms of service, Aeroflot is also very good."

Pros: "Was really happy"

Pros: "Good flight, departing Moscow wasn't so bad even with the wintry conditions (JFK on the other hand...) Flight staff was friendly and well dressed, video worked, needs were met. Wasn't cold on the flight though I did sit by the window seat so the temperature was adjusted accordingly :) Overall, very pleased with Aeroflot. Would I do it again? Already have a trip booked in two months!"
Cons: "Two go-rounds due to wind sheer in the airport environment."

Cons: "The temperature in the plane before take off was very cold. I was dressed in a warm sport suit and got cold. My daughter was shievering in 2 sweaters. Blankets were sold not given to us only after take off. We had to wait 40 mins to take off which is fine in a busy airport, but couldn't get blankets when needed."

Pros: "The crew did the best they could"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working for a duration of 10 hour flight. Not even headphones were available. Food could be better relative to other airlines."

Cons: "Thanks"

Cons: "The baggage was LOST!!!!"

Pros: "Great food, stuff and free movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I'm still in Berlin"

Cons: "my earfone was not working"

Cons: "i didnt get my kosher meal"

Pros: "The crew could be friendlier"

Cons: "Seats are not as comfort as I expected"

Pros: "They're no better than anyone else, but no worse either. They pack you in, but for the fare we were paying, we couldn't complain. Air crew was friendly and polite. A few little goodies (slippers on a long flight)."

Pros: "Crew is nice. Helpful. Vegetarian food food was okay. Flight left at reasonable delay. Price is good."
Cons: "Seats are VERY VERY uncomfortable. Narrow seats. Shallow seat.. No space in front. Screen too close to face. Many magazines."

Pros: "Crew treat the passngets great"

Pros: "No time-wasting connections and good service."
Cons: "Airport procedures at JFK tend to take too much time."

Pros: "Great service, great food, comfortable seats. Our airplane was very clean and new. We were even given slippers and eye masks, which is not something I've seen on an economy flight!"
Cons: "My seat's entertainment system had a problem with sound output, which resulted in different volume levels for each earpiece."

Pros: "Huge delay. We had a toddler and weren't offered the seats behind the wall, which is for people with kids. There weren't even people with kids sitting at those seats. Next time will fly with finnair."

Cons: "U guys cancel my flight"

Pros: "again, the crew and plane were exellent"
Cons: "the food was uneatable i would recommend serving rice in stead of pasta and hard-boiled eggs instead of the omelette, these were the worst dishes. i understand the many calculations that go into making these on0board meals. if you take a look at swissair menu you will find many great things. on the other hand, the cold cut meats and cheeses were very good, i would reccomend putting more russian delights such as potatos and meats in simple form, more butter, and of course beer over wive, which was also not good. thank you for reading so far!"

Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat from Moscow to NYC, with room for legs and no one next to me. Connection was short (in a good way). Suitcase delivered for me."
Cons: "The flight from Moscow to NYC was OK but food was medium. TV series were no so good. Old stuff or uninteresting stuff."

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Bad food"

Pros: "All the worker need raise. Keep it up. I flight a lot.. from now only with u........."

Pros: "The flight was on time and stayed in the air."
Cons: "the seats are as wide as a bus. if you are over 5'6" you will be miserable. The bathroom was not cleaned as we boarded the 10 hour return flight from moscow to JFK. The toilet seat was completely covered in urine as was the floor."

Pros: "Love this airlines. Economic is extremely comfortable"

Cons: "The flight from tlv to ny (1 stop in moskow), included 3 meals. 1. Identical. 2. Frozen - non eatable. 3. all - meat. no dairy breakfast."

Pros: "Excellent and helpful staff"
Cons: "I had a long layover (about 8 hours)"

Pros: "We had short connection and everything went well"
Cons: "I think Aeroflot can do better job on food. Drinks so limited."

Cons: "I did not see a blanket in my seat. The crew staff told me she was sure there was one blanket for one seat. I trust her. But there was no extra blanket in the plane. As the plane if full of passengers, I had to spend 11 hours with no blanket. No one took care of this issue for the whole journey. Other aspects are good though."

Cons: "Потеряли мой багаж."

Pros: "Entertainment is pretty good, lots of movies."
Cons: "Seats are too small, not comfortable at all."

Pros: "Super company!!!"

Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system in busines class was not working"

Pros: "There was a large variety of movies and shows to pick from to occupy the time on this very long flight. The airplane is new and there was good amount of leg room between the seats."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess! There were people all over the place trying to funner into a single line because there was only one general boarding announcement. Imagine all the passengers trying to board at the same time pushing each other out of the way."

Pros: "They helped me with a wheelchair. They were attentive to my needs and kind."
Cons: "The seats were too close and not very cozy. Food was tasteless. Ear phones were hard and painful. Entertainment was very bad."

Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "Food was terrible. No leg room at all. My husband is 6 feet tall and his knees are always touching the front seat but in this plane he had to keep them sideways for 9 hours! Boarding was a mess. They let everyone in together without separating people by seat numbers. People block the aisles trying to put their bags in the overhead shelves. It took us 20 min to get through the plane to our seats. After arriving to JFK we waited for our bags forever."

Pros: "Economical ticket price, comfortable seats with decent recline, good movie choices, they give you a pair of disposable slippers to wear, good overhead bin space"
Cons: "Crew has no personal skills and are generally uncaring/ rude. Their English is poor and it is virtually impossible to understand announcements. The cabin is very crowded - seats are jammed in and the aisles can barely accommodate a roll on bag's width. Food is bad! On a 10 hour flight, they served me the exact same food twice and I did not have a choice in the matter. The salad was frozen solid as was the bread and butter. The lease that they can do is defrost the food!"

Pros: "fat babushkas as stewards, no inflight entertainment, food&drinks sucked"

Cons: "time allocated for transfer was very short and pressing, it was hard for me to make this connection as there is a very long distance between arrival and departure terminal/gates, so I had to run, and being 72 years old, running is no longer my thing."

Pros: "Had a decent selection of movies and things to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Security and airport personnel are mostly rude and unpleasant. Flight attendants were ok. For a 10 hour flight, the seats were very tight and uncomfortable. For sure the worst I've been on for such a long flight. I'm 5'11" as a reference. The food was sub-par, but it is airplane food after all. Boarding was chaotic due to people/families having way too many little carry-on bags. I would only use Aeroflot again for short, cheap European trips...maybe. For long flights, no thanks."

Pros: "I liked when the flight landed"
Cons: "The food was tasteless- good thing I brought my own"
