Pros: "Crew was amazing. Good food. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Music options along with the movies"

Cons: "Everything great but the seats..don’t expect too much of a leg room in the 777 Boeing...unless you get the exit row in economy or you book a business class!"
Pros: "Both the flight crew and the flight attendants were great. It was the smoothest landing I have had it quite dome time"

Pros: "Swiss took care of arranging hotel for us and substitution flight."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because of delay"
Pros: "The food and beverage service in Coach was great as usual ... The new 777 ER 300 was really a nice improvement over the aging Airbus planes previously flown Entertainment systems in coach were top notch with great entertainment choices to view ..."
Cons: "3 4 3 seating results in very narrow isles ... during the longer flights on the 777 the isle seated passengers lean into the isles making going to and from the restrooms in ( coach) a bit of an obstacle course"
Pros: "The bag drop off and check in went very quickly."
Cons: "The plane was late and there was little to no communication to the passengers waiting to board the flight. Very tiring."

Pros: "Pretty much on time even with snow conditions!"
Cons: "Coffee was pretty much cold."
Pros: "I was late ( I had to drive 230 Km ) and I managed to call in advance the company that was doing the check-in on behalf of SWISS - I asked them the Check-in time closing time and by almost flying ( speeding like crazy ) I arrived before that moment."
Cons: "I did not check the terms and conditions of the ticket. I am a Star Alliance Gold member and I was expecting SWISS to have a similar booking system like the others I fly with. I found out that the ticket fare did not contain checked luggage ( so I had to pay a hefty fee for it ) and also my 20" wheeled case that was ok in all the other flights I took it with me, this time was oversized and overweight . My wife took out the 2 laptops so it became within weight limits but still oversized - My wife paid for the fee ( I wasn't there at the time and she is not a such experienced flyier as I am ) . When I found out about the fee, I checked their rules and I found out that the hand luggage is allowed to be 22" . I saw in the airplane a lot of people with cases having the same size as mine, that went as checked luggage at a cost fo around 40 . I want to see how can I get my money back . . ."
Cons: "The gate was changed without significant announcement"
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "Entertainment failed on both my seat and the lady next to me. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight! I already got the ticket and paid extra luggage- what is the extra charge for?? The lady at extra luggage tried to overcharge me as well! Had to refer her to your website! I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, air crew was friendly, helpful and patient. The food was actually really quite good. Entertainment kept my little ones occupied and seated."
Cons: "There were quite a lot of in-flight announcements by the flight crew - which disrupted the in-flight entertainment and irritated the little ones. The garbage dispenser in the bathroom seemed a bit small for the task."
Pros: "i'd like services and the food"
Cons: "Seats too small."
Pros: "Food a, entertainment and crew were really good!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaose and seats were tight."
Pros: "Swiss is already a great company and yesterday it just got better : I got upgraded on business class between Geneva and New York and it was a very nice treat, the service was perfect, the food excellent, the seat was very comfortable. Thank you SWISS !"
Pros: "lovely flight -left on time arrived 1 hr early. my earphones did not fit plane plug, the one provided did not fit my ears - slept instead,,,Excellent service..."
Pros: "Swiss has amazing crew. Incredibly polite and accommodating. Their food (for economy class seat) was very good to excellent. The new Boeing 777 is also a smooth plane to ride."
Cons: "The boarding process in Zurich was a free for all. There is not a "method" to their boarding (i.e. by row or zone) so all 300 passengers crowded around the gate. We paid $100 for exit seats but the seats were barely wide enough for me...a medium built thin male. Unfortunately this appears to be the trend. Swiss would do well to have a wide economy section."
Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"
Cons: "No USB charger in seat"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "No space, bad video screens (especially important for a long flight with a 3 year old) with terrible image and sound quality, even with my good headphones."
Cons: "Flight attendant spilled hot tea on me and he didn't help me out. The other flight atttendant assisted to my burns. I have 2ond degree burns on my arm from this incident."
Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"
Pros: "I liked everything.....the food, boarding, comfortable, the crew. It was excellent! Will fly them again."
Cons: "The movies were the same so coming back there was nothing to watch."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed, everything else about it was great! Newer, more comfortable seating than the plane from the US to Europe, excellent food and service, no complaints about the in-air experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed most likely because of inefficiencies in the passport check / boarding process, some people got confused, waited in the boarding line, then had to go back in queue in the passport check line. Last person walked into the plane 10 min after the scheduled departure time, as a result the airport delayed our departure by 50 more minutes."
Pros: "Terrific flight. All on schedule"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The food was pretty good and service was frequent even in economy."
Cons: "The seats are too close to each other. The couple in front of use reclined the entire flight and they were nearly in our laps. We could not get in and out of our seats to stretch. The flight attendant needed to ask them to sit up during meals so that we could eat."
Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach). The food is really good, they are generous with drinks and the crew is really friendly and smiling! Would take this flight again without any reservations in future!"
Pros: "smooth, professional, comfortable"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "The seats have been much better"
Cons: "The entertainment system is a little old (plugs are not universal), you had to use their (cheap) headsets."
Pros: "Professional Staff; best food on international flight ever."
Cons: "Missed my fight, not by my Folt(big accident on highway 80) .. Paid 400$ fee for next connecting flight, but first they told me I have to buy new ticket. My laguage was shipped only to Zurich, but destination was Vienna.. so they didn't let me on connecting flight.. It took another 3hours dealing with people from Swiss airlines(great service"
Cons: "An hour late, not Swiss fault but Captain continued to broadcast 5-10 minute delays. Just say it's going to be an hour, then we can all turn our phones back on and go to the lavatory."
Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect, sincere, and friendly. Great selection of free movies."
Cons: "I could not open my laptop and do any work once the person in front of me put their seat back. Big time bummer."
Pros: "The crew was polite but did not enforce social distancing when boarding. Disembarkation was chaos with everyone pushing to get off the plane."
Cons: "Calling people to board by rows would have made it less chaotic. Disembarkation was a dangerous disorganized mess."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was smaller than most other flights and the war phonejack didn't work and the video constantly paused every 30 seconds. Also the 1 8kilo bad allowance in the cabin is a bit unreasonable but I see why they need to because the overhead storage and under the sit storage was less than normal too."
Pros: "Crew was perfect, seat was great"
Cons: "All is well."
Pros: "Everything. They were polite fast and never condescending to passengers."
Cons: "I could of wish they would have been a little more stern with some passengers."
Cons: "Food and service"
Cons: "Turkish food and coffee are amazing"
Pros: "It is always better when this flight is operated by wide body aircraft, as was the case with A330 this time"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "All was really good"
Cons: "Long lines ( about 40 min) to get into transfer zone at the airport. I guess this is not aircompanu fault, but airport."
Pros: "Attractive business class fares. Among the best business class."
Cons: "Don't underestimate the additional hours. The stopover in Istanbul is definitely a negative (crowded, unpractical airport). Next time I will probably stick to European airlines, if the fare difference is reasonable."
Pros: "crew and service are great."
Cons: "the last leg, Istanbul to DC was completely full. i was seating at the back (33K). after the meal, i wanted to recline and the man behind me started yelling as he has water on his table. i apologized and asked if i can recline the seat and he yelled again and said i cannot recline my seat. i talked to the flight attendant and she wanted to move me to a middle seat. i declined and eventually the man said i can recline my seat. but i mean, seriously, i got yelled at for trying to recline my seat and got no apologies from anyone."
Pros: "Si Much!!"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Cons: "I picked a window seat very early on through a phone call to a Turkish Airline agent in the USA, but when I checked in online, the seat assigned to me was gone and I was put in a middle seat while there were many other seats available. This erasure of the record and random seat assignment nullify the effort on the part of the passenger (making a call is not a trivial act these days because of the long waits) and generate uncertainty in the minds of the travellers. Hope you can improve on this point. That will make an even better impression on the passengers."
Cons: "Seat adjustments on both our seats in Business Class were not working!!"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Polite crew and staff, comfortable enough for economy"
Cons: "Special meal wasn’t correct at first, crew corrected the mistake but the meal was absolutely terrible. Had the no lactose meal and it tasted exclusively of stewed tomatoes. Pack a lunch and don’t rely on the airport at Istanbul, there’s no options for people with food restrictions."
Pros: "Great service, great food and drinks"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding process was not orderly"
Pros: "love georgia!!"
Cons: "I like everything"
Cons: "Customer service was very poor while we were struggling to get back to the US while the hurricane was coming to FL. We tried twice to fly home earlier because we knew the flights were going to get cancelled but the airlines wanted to charge us $1500 for that. So when the time came and the flights got cancelled they were trying to adjust the flights and we got stranded away from our kids. Overall it was not a great experience as far as their customer service and we were not happy with how they chose to handle things."
Pros: "Boarding started 40 minutes later than stated on my boarding pass. Had to take a bus to the airplane and the ride was not exactly short - I'm pretty sure the plane was parked at the very other end of the airport. When we finally took off it was exactly an hour later than scheduled. That's the first time I've had a delay longer than the actual flight."
Pros: "Great food! Loved that you get a menu to choose from"
Cons: "We were not asked or given the option to choose our seats on the plane."
Pros: "Delicious food, fantastic entertainment system, power plugs and USB plugs at every seat. The amenities kit everyone gets is fantastic and sure makes the flying experience feel more special."
Pros: "Crew members were nice People were good at check in as well"
Cons: "It was ok but room to improve everywhere It's matter of process where it may help to choose international standards rather than follow ones preferences"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Turkish flights are consistently comfortable, service is good."
Cons: "I purchased a flight during the day, but ended up on a red-eye anyway."
Pros: "Surprised at the quality of food on an airplane"
Cons: "Wish the staff would pick up the dishes quicker that's it."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Cons: "We ran to the gate but we're turned away and spent 3 hours getting rebooked and to a hotel for the night."
Pros: "Just entertainment system and crew makes your life easier on aircraft."
Cons: "Long boarding time from Amsterdam to Istanbul. No explanation of delay and THY wants you to wait miserably on gate. On Schipol airport there is screens everywhere and they do not bother to update the status of boarding. Instead, they behave like everything is normal you are the person making the problem."
Pros: "Nothing important"
Cons: "Nothing extra ordinary"
Cons: "Canceled flight"
Pros: "Crew demeanor Cleanliness of the cabin Boarding process"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport facilities Food choices Alcohol selection Changing tkt and customer service"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Too early to bored and they push you to rush."
Pros: "The service and the meals, even in economy class."
Pros: "I love the food, the airline crew was excellent. The entertainment was great as well."
Cons: "The checking crew from Jfk airport was mediocre."
Pros: "A lot of media content"
Cons: "driving to the plain by bus"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, newer plane with comforts seats even in economy. Great food and amenities."
Cons: "Smelly passengers with body odor. Screaming, crying children that poo every couple of hours. A/C WAS INCONSISTANT drspite several complaints to cabin attendants."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Loved the food!"
Cons: "Although I had a book and good seat-mate, the movie screens stopped working after a few minutes for about 80% of us on the flight. That made for a very long 11 hr flight. There was no apology made to those of us with broken screens. and for boarding, the Airport screens when from no gate to "GO TO GATE" and we all rushed there, some of us 2 hrs early. They put us through security where we were stuck with no available restrooms for nearly 2 hrs before our flight. There was no reason for the rush, and there really should have been bathrooms for us."
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "Lots of nice little amenities (lip balm, sleep mask). Tons of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Seats were small, old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "on time performance for flight"
Cons: "Cabin crew not very responsive on requests"
Pros: "The crew were friendly enough and willing to serve."
Cons: "The seat could have been thicker and softer for greater comfort--instead, it was thin and flimsy. There should also be greater space/pitch between the rows of seats."
Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Cons: "The ife screen was extremely slow and unresponsive."
Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "The pilot pointed out the Alps as we flew over. It was an early flight most were sleeping and we would have missed it had he not mentioned it."
Cons: "Nothing all was good"
Pros: "The person sitting next to me in the aisle seat moved so I had a window seat and free access to the aisle so I could use the bathroom when I wanted which let me stay hydrated on the plane. This was great. Crew was overall pretty responsive and helpful. Never a line for bathroom"
Pros: "Super professional, comfortable and on-time service with both Swiss and Lufthansa."
Cons: "Clear up-front notification about extra charge for first checked bag on both ways of the trip ($60 each). I couldn't find that information at the time of the booking."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "All great except my seat."
Cons: "Window seat was completely obstructed by wing!! Seat uncomfortable but sat on pillow provided which helped a lot."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "We waited in the plane on the tarmac for 3-1/2 hours waiting for the plane to be de-iced before take-off. I understand that there is nothing Lufthansa can do about the weather, but they (or the Munich airport) need to have more de-icing machines. It is ridiculous to have to wait that long."
Pros: "Lufthansa will always be my choice airline. Their staff are nicely dressed, accommodating and well mannered."
Cons: "On this trip back to Dublin, our flight from Munich to Dublin was delayed for over two hours. It would be nice for Lufthansa to at least offer the passengers something to eat or drink while on board waiting for such a long time."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Food was Good, flight was without much stress and a little faster to compensate for the delay."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no announcements, long wait in line for boarding, repeated delays. Not the first time - Every tome I use this flight it is delayed and without clear information to passengers how much delay is anticipated. Announcements, even if they come - come not loud, simultaneous with other announcements - so impossible to hear. Scheduled gate is moved every time too."
Pros: "Food was great. The crew was very polite and professional"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Accommodations comfortable"
Cons: "Crew was not helpful. There was clearly not enough room for everyone's hand luggage, and the crew members simply shrugged their shoulders. I flew with hand luggage on lap because bins were full."
Cons: "Didn't get meal of my choice. The crew was very friendly and responsive. Overall very good experience."
Pros: "Nice plane, efficient boarding and very attentive crew. There’s plenty of entertainment options and free win with dinner."
Cons: "Everything was great. No complaints."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Pros: "WiFi access, usb Port"
Cons: "Moved boarding gate without notice"
Pros: "I can’t say enough about the Lufthansa staff- we ran to our gate because our connecting flight was late, and we were greeted by a warm and smiling face who said “It’s alright, don’t run, take your time, we’re waiting for you.” Onboard the crew was phenomenal- Every. Single. One. I have always felt as a burden to crew if I asked for extra water or an extra blanket- not on this flight, not with this crew. They came around multiple times per hour during an 8hr and 20min flight, offering various beverages and checking on everyone. I can’t thank them enough for how caring they were to everyone on board. The captain as well was very professional and had a kind spirit when he spoke. Best experience I’ve ever had- (and I travel multiple times per year!)"
Pros: "The crew was nice about everything. On being asked at the airport to at least change my seat on the second leg flight the personnel did it without a fuss."
Cons: "Food could have been better, the breakfast/snack we got wasn't filling at all. The entertainment collection can be better specially Indian/Hindi movies"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Cons: "Our booking was changed from cologne to Frankfurt and Frankfurt was hurriable."
Pros: "Food is better than other airlines, keep it up!"
Cons: "breakfast was just a muffin. used to be a real breakfast with bread, butter etc. would be nice to bring that back"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Service , on time"
Pros: "It was quick and smooth. Snack provided. Baggage arrived quickly."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Pros: "Crew was welcoming and seats ok for a short flight."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Pros: "Their service is excellent on board ."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Food was poor, dried up and not enough for 10 hours flight. You did have the option to buy more."
Pros: "Again lufthansa crew one of the best out there thank you"
Cons: "No entertainment but I understand why short flight"
Pros: "The everything was excellent, easy. Very comfortable with nice professional staff around! Thank you!"
Pros: "On time. Fast boarding and un boarding. Crew is very friendly."
Cons: "No tv, though understandably on a short flight."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Delays in departure from Hamburg. Lack of information, directions or assistance with connection."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was late, They kept us in the plane for 20min And bagages are delay...."
Cons: "The special menus items do not cater to people who have peanut and tree nut allergies. i was only able to eat pretzels and drink coca cola."
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Pros: "Staff are very friendly & well mannered. I like it since it's my first to fly with Lufthansa which compare to Swiss Air"
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: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Annoying kids in seats behind us :( Not enough leg room for someone over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Service in general."
Cons: "I paid to choose my seat during the flight. However; they didn't respect the seat I paid for and they gave a different one, and the seat that they gave me wasn't a seat for the one I wouldn't had paid for. That same situation happened two times. During the flight from Panamá to Franckfurt and Franckfurt to Rome. That's why I felt they Robbed me."
Cons: "To arrive on time."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "I do like the clean aircraft, and pretty precise service. Also it was on time , for comfort the pillow and the blanket was nice . Some airlines doesn’t give anything anymore! Which is awful."
Cons: "Just a small thing the lady who was serving and picking up the used cups said I have to finish the juice and after she can take it away. But I couldn’t finish because it was too sweet and I didn’t like the juice. So I had to get up and bring the cup to the back. That wasn’t nice. Also they at but flexible about giving choices. Only one kind of sandwich they had but I think there was one other kid also."
Cons: "The service with an awful crew !!! Just plain spiteful and arogant even if we flew in Business class"
Cons: "Mechanical problems caused a 5+ hour delay. Very poor communication regarding what was happening. It was my first—and last—time flying with Austrian Airlines."
Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."
Cons: "Staff is not friendly, does not offer assistance or ask if you need anything."
Pros: "The crews are very polite."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "The boarding process was short and quick. Entertainment choices were excellent."

Pros: "Crew was nice and very accommodating. Food service timing was good. Restrooms serviced every one efficiently. Electronic service outlets are quite helpful and thoughtful."
Cons: "Only at boarding we were notified to be TSA screened, we ended up the last passengers to board and caused flight delay... Electronic check in did not provide food selection, specially for individuals who suffer some food allergies... Boarding process to be revised taking in consideration last minute matters to be better coordinated."
Pros: "all good."
Cons: "austrian airlines female flight attendants have to wear ALL red. it seems a bit much."
Cons: "Space between seats"
Pros: "Flight schedule, boarding management"

Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Cons: "Flyght was terible"
Cons: "Food part was missing."
Cons: "Our flights there were postponed causing us to miss out connecting flights, we rescheduled with a different airline. The same thing happened coming home. Austrian was a complete disappointment going there and back."
Pros: "There was no in-flight entertainment system so I rejoiced to discover there was in-flight WiFi."
Cons: "But Wifi did not offer much, just some summary descriptions on the destination. I'd be enchanted to get via WiFi the well-known in-flight map showing which leg of your flight was accomplished."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at the time we were suppose to board. We had to find another flight via Istanbul and got to our destination 6 hours late. Won't use Kayak again."
Pros: "Seating like every other airline in economy. There was NO baggage charge for economy and the drink trolley offered wine and beer, at no cost, on our 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing seating for a 12 hour flight was not comfortable."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Comfort was good because I had a whole bench to myself!"

Cons: "Behavior of AA. We came with AA from Nica to Wien on time and AA did not allowed us to take plane to Zagreb. They changed to latter fly with CA. Shameful and inadmissible !"
Pros: "The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour after boarding to wait for passengers from another flight. I understand waiting 10-15 mins but one hour was way too long."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Waited over two hours to be rebooked. Nothing was offer. Special meals was not available for a flight that is over 9 hours. No other food was available."
Pros: "Captain Schmidt greeting boarders. Spotless interior. Cheerful in flight staff. On time. Pleasant in flight refreshments. Smooth transitions through each phase of the flight. Prompt baggage delivery. I will always go out of my way to use Austrian Airlines."
Pros: "My bag didn't make my connecting flight so I guess they upgraded me because of that. Exceptional service, food and comfort. Ground staff at Vienna and crew were wonderful."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful ,except for the poor food."
Cons: "The flight was 9 and half hours and the food was very poor, I was starving ,maybe AA can improve that, it would be nice if they could add a little bit of fruit and a yogurt for a good digestion .Also, the sandwich they gave us at the end was so small ,maybe they can give us a real sandwich instead ..Sorry AA ,but you need to work on that .For the price I paid I can fly United ,they don't let me starve."
Pros: "Sleep at the airport with kids from 7:pm to next day 10: am and be first time and lass time"

Pros: "complimentary chocolates are excellent"
Cons: "my luggage was one day late"

Cons: "Nothing!!! Everything was great!!! And specially the Vienna airport!!! Supper compy"
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 flight was on time (actually arrived early). Everything was great, except for the seats and knee space, which was just ok - in line with every other company; that doesn't make it good. The entertainment unit was great, many options plus a charging USB port. Food was good; coffee was bad (instant) - is it that difficult to make good coffee on the plane? Crew was professional and efficient. Happy(ish) overall. Thanks."
