Cons: "Crew just ok."
Cons: "Headphones are real cheap and hurt the ears...plus it has two pin socket where you can't use your regular headphones...please change this!"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable. The headrest was great and the seat pitch and recline were decent. I was able to sleep better with Swiss than with other airlines like Lufthansa or Delta. They are much better overall for sure. The food and staff were excellent! The food quality is very good compared to the other airlines. The cabin crew are always passing around water and chocolates throughout the flight. They were friendly and helpful as well. The pilots were also very good. We had no rough turbulence and their landing skills were amazing."
Cons: "The boarding procedures could be improved. They don't have zones and everybody just line up. Families with small children are not accomodated first."
Pros: "Great complimentary chocolate."
Cons: "You would think that after spending 1100 on a ticket that a passenger could chose their own seat within 24 hours of their flight. Nope. They wanted me to pay for my seat after already spending 1100. Then they said I was randomly selected for a TSA check in Zurich. Seriously. And there was no TSA agent in sight doing the check. It was a Swiss Airline Employee. Never had that happen even in the USA."
Cons: "We had almost 8 hours delay"
Pros: "Food was great!! Flight was so much better than the United flight I took to get there. Plane was much more comfortable and cleaner."

Cons: "The airplane was to old. The company should put a better one ."

Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."
Pros: "The flight attendants were exceptionally nice - a real pleasure. Food was also quite good and the chocolate passing out is a super excellent treat."
Cons: "It is disappointing, on an 8+ hour flight, to have the entertainment system broken. The crew was apologetic, but it still is really lame. Made the flight oppressively long."
Pros: "The crew members were polite and efficient."
Cons: "There was no climate control. Our rows were freezing cold. People were wearing coats and blankets. Four or five rows up it was warm. My husband asked for more heat and the stewardess said she would turn it up, but nothing happened. Cold air blew out of the ceiling vents for the entire flight. When we reached our gate, we then waited in a long line to have our passports and boarding passes checked again. There were several Swissair crew members, but only one person to check all of the paperwork for economy. Then another long line to show our boarding passes again, while the business class entrance remained unused. Swissair needs someone to manage this better."
Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION I IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, SPECIALLY FOR A TALL PERSON ON A LONG FLIGHT.......ADDING TO THE FACT THAT THE PERSON IN FRONT OF YOU MIGHT DECIDE TO BE SOOO COMFORTABLE,HE'D PULL HIS SEAT ALL THE WAY BACK WITHOUT ANY CONSIDERATION!!!..THAT PUTS THE SCREEN ONLY INCHES AWAY FROM YOUR FACE!!..BESIDES, THE CHECK-IN MACHINES AT THE ZURICH TERMINAL ARE A HARD TO UNDERSTAND..TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CHECK-IN WITHOUT SUCESS!!"

Pros: "I like the punctuality of boarding time and taking off/landing time."
Cons: "The second meal wasn't exactly my taste."
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Cons: "Please change my meal request from diabetic to regular"
Cons: "שום דבר"
Cons: "The security check at the Istanbul gate is haphazard and not to0 professional"

Pros: "Almost everything from boarding till landing."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that people need to wait in the bus shuttle too long. It's just better to let people wait at the gate and ride them to the plane when it's 100% ready."
Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."
Pros: "Amenitied were great. We even arrived significantly early."
Cons: "it's not so much the airline's fault. they don't have US immigration desk at Istanbul airport, and going through immigration at JFK can take ages."
Cons: "Why this difference between India to Istanbul and Istanbul to New York flights?!!!!"
Cons: "Forced me to take beed as Chicken wasnt available. Very reluctant to arrange for an alternative option, and this is after they were already running behind on serving dinner."
Cons: "my chair was not inclining . After several requests to take a look at it or even move me to another seat, it was never addressed."

Cons: "Late baggage"
Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home.

Pros: "Food delicious-especially lasagne."
Pros: "I didnt ever purchase that ticket"
Pros: "We landed 50 min early!"
Cons: "The aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly before boarding."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"
Pros: "Amenities, seating, plane was newer and nice"
Cons: "Stewardess didn't seem to want to work.wasn't attentive, seemed annoyed, by the time I could order breakfast in 31st class I only had 1 option left. Why wouldn't there be enough for all choices for all 1st class passengers?"
Cons: "Price of food"
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "The stewards were professional, courteous, efficient, helpful, excellent at keeping the cabin clean, kind, and just overall wonderful."
Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Was good"
Pros: "the Ground team from Israel to New York was amazing and very helpful."

Cons: "Coming back was good ,but going was a mess"
Pros: "The planes were well maintained. Good entertain emend choices. Food was decent too"
Pros: "New-ish aircraft"
Cons: "Prompt departure; better food/snacks."
Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."
Pros: "The food/drinks"
Pros: "It was cancelled and scheduled next day"
Cons: "See above. What a disaster!"
Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"
Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."
Cons: "See above. Going both ways..."
Pros: "Relaxed trip. We were well cared for. Again very good staff"
Pros: "Family check-in in Frankfurt is superb. Economy Plus was a really great experience!"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use my own headphones and I'm forced to use the cheap airline-provided ones (with the dual plugs). Single biggest reason to not fly Lufthansa, because I can't enjoy the movies!"
Pros: "Still use silverware and provide blankets, pillows, headphones, nice clean plane"
Cons: "The tv monitor had very limited options and froze about every 5 minutes. The screen was either very unresponsive or would freeze"

Cons: "Every single seat in coach except row 34 or 27"
Cons: "Pretty good. Great crew."
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised to be offered an after dinner brandy, or a Bailey's. O"
Cons: "On both flights. The ear phone did not work correctly. Minor issue."

Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"
Pros: "Crew !!!"
Cons: "Very long distance to gate Z 69 with no time to cost my knee pain !!!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work most of time. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Good overall experience"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "crew was not friendly"
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Pros: "Great flying on an A380"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The chicken, potatos and spinach dish was the best. I like that they have you a pillow, cover, and headphones."
Cons: "At first the movies worked then they did a reset and my audio stopped working and they did another reset when I let an attendant know about it and it still didn't work. They never came back for me to let them know about the problem."
Pros: "They waited for those who were running late due to a previous flight delay. The crew was super friendly and there was great movie suggestions."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulance which made a lot of the passengers sick. I think also that they collected the headphones too early like 45 mins/1 hour too early before landing. Also landing felt like it was the longest landing in my life."
Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "I think everything was first class, specially the CREW."
Cons: "staying 11h with no assistant"
Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"

Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Liked the ice cream bars"

Pros: "I loved everything."
Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"

Pros: "the staff is top notch"
Pros: "great 747-8 bird, modern, quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "same JFK with always delayed unboarding, wait for the gate and luggage, long lines to everything"
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfurt was too short (45 min) and the delay of the flight Milan- Frankfurt did not help; I had to run to catch my flight to NY. And in addition, my baggage went lost"
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"
Pros: "They had lots of movies and TV options to choose from."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was very poor. Frankly a pizza snack in place of supper is not what I expect on a cross-Atlantic flight."
Cons: "More food"
Cons: "Don’t tell passengers they can make a transfer flight supposed to leave in 20 minutes because the first flight was late, and then have the plane leave without the passengers who sprinted through the airport after having to go through customs and security again."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"

Cons: "It would be wonderful to have all seats the same as first class for a long distance flight."
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."
Cons: "Hand luggage not allowed onboard due to being just a bit oversized -- just its wheels only. Never had this problem with the same luggage with other airlines, only with Austrian."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Cons: "They were delayed on every one of my flights - missed connecting flight and had to be booked on a new flight which got in a midnight. Terrible!!"
Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
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: "Medical help"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I have been selected for additional screening at Vienna airport which was very time consuming and not very pleasant"
Cons: "the entertainment was broken, they didn't offer WIFI. the crew was very rude and crabby."
Cons: "it was canceled and i still waiting for refund so i did get ticket on vayama how i get email from kayak"
Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. Austrian flight attendants were quite grumpy on this flight."
Pros: "I received an upgrade to a larger and more comfortable seat. The beverages were good and the staff was terrific."
Cons: "The food quantity was skimpy considering the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ended up on Swiss Air. Only good thing about Austrian was they booked us on other flights at the check in desk."
Pros: "I like the food , service and clean airplane."
Pros: "Nice staff. efficient."
Pros: "Was on partner airline Austrian Air. Very good service."
Cons: "At Vienna gate G31 it was difficult to hear announcements."
Pros: "This isn't really the flight, but see below for lack of personnel at Vienna airport to help locate gates after our flight arrived very delayed. I was running with a cane, and getting very upset when an airport employee with a cart asked if he could help. He took me to the gate I thought was for my flight, but it was for a DIFFERENT flight to Zurich. He calmed me down and drove me to the correct gate, talking the agent there to make sure it was the right one before he left me there. I wish I had time to get his name because he was very kind and helpful and I don't know what I would have done without him - wouldn't have made the flight, that's for sure. (He was in vicinity of gates F 3 - 13 on Sunday June 11 approximately 5:15 - 5:30pm Vienna time, if anyone wants to know)"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed almost one hour. Even though I had only one hour between flights, I was told (in Split) that all flights would be delayed, so no worries. On the plane, they gave information for some flights; for the rest of us they just said, go to your gate (for connecting flight) as quickly as possible. Flight landed at 5:05pm. When I walked out of plane (I was using a cane; recovering from broken ankle so have some trouble walking distances), there was no board with flight info, just immigration. Finally I saw a flight board, and had 10-15 minutes walk still. Also, signage wasn't great. I called after an Austrian Airline flight attendant who was also leaving, but she never heard me. Finally I found the right direction, still had security to go through. I was running with the cane (not good for my ankle). Essentially there was no help. Until a man driiving one of those carts helped me - I write about him above in what I liked about the flight."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable even in economy. The crew were helpful and professional. Good food."
Cons: "We were boarded and then told we had to sit on the plane for 45 minutes before take off. It's possible this way beyond the crew's control, but still would've been better to wait in the airport. Also, the movie selection was smallish compared to some other airlines."
Pros: "When you travel with an infant it's already a difficult trip but it's really fraustrating when you find out that they didn't assign you to the seats with the baby bassanet, and when I went to the counter to fix the problem instead they change our window seats to an isle seats without even asking or notifying us with the changes, and they when I asked how come you don't automatically assign infant reservations to infant seats their excuse was what if there were more infants than available infant seats and they already gave out those seats with extended leg space to others who already had paid for it, and surprisingly there were multiple of infants on board none of them in those seats but rather the other passengers who paid for it, so basically they got paid extra and you will only suffer for almost 10 hrs so they can make extra profit. NEVER AGAIN AUSTRIAN AIRLINES!!!"
Cons: "Entertainment on board was useful"
Cons: "Austrian Air has really slipped in its food-product.. Lufthansa put out snacks (cookies etc; even small sandwiches to 'help yourself from' going from Atlanta to Frankfort which was nice). But not the case with Austrian The serving of it was fine. Restroom options are less than adequate too."
Cons: "Too many customers use more than their fair share of the overhead space. A lot of passengers placed their luggage and their personal item above. This left those of use who use only our fair alottment searching for a place for what we fairly should be allowed to use."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were fine. But nothing to crow about. Just not stressful."
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable flight I have had. It was hard fora short flight, though sitting so close to another passenger, side and front was stressful. Plus, my back was killing me by the end of the short flight- and the long flight from Europe to the US was hard. It was pretty much knocking elbows with the passenger next to me when eating. And mind you- no passenger in my row as any larger than the average person. The seat recline was fine and marginally helpful in relieving back strain- except it did put you in the lap of the passenger behind you. The passenger across the aisle from me shoved the seat in front of her and told the passenger in front of her he could NOT recline. The passenger next to her (I assume her husband) joined in with the shoving. I finally felt a need to intervene and calm them down as it began to escalate- and I did want the flight to continue. Note- while I think the passengers shoving the seat were a bit rude- the crowded nature of the seating with the recline was hard, so I understand. But the person in front had a reason (and a NEED given the discomfort) to lean his seat back. The seats were simply too uncomfortable to keep them upright. I helped them find a recline for both passengers that was reasonably okay. I also tried to get my recline somewhere between comfortable for me (impossible) and reasonable in space for the person behind me, This is an airline problem. And when people wonder about the rise in passenger rage... this cramming in is it. I had to use Austrian because of a last minute need to book a flight- given the inability to relax even a little and the residual back and leg pain ... thus my ability to immediately jump into work during a busy work and travel schedule means that I will definitely not take this airline again. If you are shorter than 5' 5 and weigh about 100 lbs- this might be okay. Otherwise, expect to be a lot of rats shoved in a cage."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight along with my girlfriend from beginning to end. The flight attendants were very courteous & the service was fast & the food & drink portions were generous."
Pros: "It was the best flight I've had and the best Pilot. Thank you, Corina Pauta"
Pros: "The flight was good, the food was good, the crew was excellent"
Cons: "The wheel on my luggage was broken (it was fine the whole trip). I had to throw out my bag after I got it home"
Pros: "The service on board was fantastic. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "They could not issue boarding pass for the all the segments of the travel. The agent had to talk to someone in order to even issue the boarding pass and even though the bags were checked in all the way to Pittsburgh boarding passes were not issued. I cannot blame the agent because Luftansa had issued the ticket for this Austrian Airline flight."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "There was no space. Even though I wore compression socks and got up to walk frequently, my legs were bruised as I could not stretch out for any extended time. The seats are cramped and you are in one position. The flight was almost 9 hours and it was too much for me."
Pros: "Reasonably on time. Food and service were passable."
Cons: "Very old plane, the entertainment system was awful. Wifi did not work at all."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "Food & extremely old plane with no electrical outlets no Wi-Fi and the entertainment system was rubbish . The food was terrible. One passenger mentioned that the bathroom was in terrible shape. I actually tidied up the bathroom before I left cause my bathroom was also in terrible shape or getting there. This plane needs to be retired it is so old! United Airlines should be embarrassed! I can't believe this plane is still in circulation at least the inside of it! How about updating it to modern times?"
Pros: "Served a lot of food. Most personnel friendly and helpful. Enjoyed entertainment selections. Plus this flight was $300 cheaper than the others. Convenient times and choice of airports."
Pros: "I liked the service and the polite staff. Timelyness also we liked.I will use united again."
Pros: "The flight was quick, food good, crew friendly. we landet earlier than expected."
Cons: "This was an older plane and even I paid for economy plus, there was no outlet, no on ddemand movies and the seat was not as comfortable as in a newer plane. Very little space in the overhead departments, even for carry on luggage."
Pros: "Everything was fine — but every bit of this flight was managed by United — the aircraft, the crew, the check-in desk — never encountered anything related to Austrian Air the whole time."
Pros: "Flight wasn't overcrowded Attendants were very nice Entertainment system was very good (new screens with easy interface, broad selection of movies and TV shows)"
Cons: "Food and beverages could have been a bit more frequent. One lunch and a small sandwich over a 9 hour flight, I felt hungry at some point"
Cons: "I am charged twice/ one from united and another from Austrian airlines and at this point trying to resolve that. Very disappointing at best. The seat upgrade for $139 was a rip off."
Pros: "Nothing was overly terrible. The chicken was pretty good. Mostly on time departure and arrival. And smooth boarding / exiting process."
Cons: "Food - pasta was awful, snack was tiny, 9h 30m flight. Should probably have more than a half a sandwich snack. Space - tiny. I am 6' and 190lbs, knees were basically wedged against the seat in front of me. My girlfriend is 5'9" and she was even complaining about space. Entertainment - really limited movie selection."
