Airline reviews

Pros: "The in flight service was fantastic. The attendants were friendly and always smiling. The pilots flew the plane with Swiss precision. I had an economy ticket and they fed us twice and had at least six beverage passes to keep you hydrated. A blanket, pillow and ear buds were provided as part of the seat. Norwegian Air does not even cover a glass of water. They are pathetic. We will travel with Swiss Air again."

Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "It was very efficient and the staff was very nice. The line was long but fast. The seats have quite the lean which made it easier to lie back. Getting Swiss chocolate is always a plus."
Cons: "The seats weren’t as comfortable or fluffy but it was a short flight so it can very well be overseen."

Pros: "always enjoying my swiss flights. Thanks guys good job"

Pros: "Flight was fine! Snack and beverages were good. However, when you buy the ticket for the international flight, what they don’t tell you is the extra €40- FORTY EURO you will spend to check a not big bag. For this reason I would fly with another airline next time."

We got to Zurich with 30 minutes to go. We literally ran to get to gate E. We got no help from Swiss employees and got to our gate with 10 min before flight. They said gate was closed. Went to transfer desk, next flight was next day at 1 pm. Missed very important meeting at work that I had planned around for months. Very upset and disappointed. Felt they could have helped us a lot more and got us on our flight."

Pros: "overall very satisfied"
Cons: "no issues"

Pros: "All members of the crew were wonderful! The food was good and this time I could take advantage of free snacks and beverages, in addition to the ones frequently distributed to everybody. Last time I flew with Norwegian, and it was a shocking experience: the crew were rude and unrpofessional, everything extra, they even refused to serve water to a passenger... So, never again Norwegian--Swiss was a nice change and, in the end, I paid more or less the same :-)"
Cons: "Space is getting smaller and smaller; I would welcome a bigger selection of movies and games."

Cons: "Lighting in aircraft is too bright Food offers by swiss in economy is terrible. My company di a not support business class travel"

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The seats are too close to each other. \"

Cons: "Late departure and arrival. No leg room in seats. Entire airline uses the cattle car approach. Would not fly with them again or recommend them to friends."

Pros: "I have a moderate fear of flying and our plane experienced turbulence while passing through some clouds. I asked the flight attendant if everything was okay, and he smiled and explained that there was some rain on the way to Switzerland. I really appreciate when the crew takes the time to explain what is going on. Knowing what to expect helps me deal with my fear. Because of the flight attendant's willingness to explain the details of our flight, I felt more comfortable during the remainder of the trip."

Cons: "Fod no good"

Cons: "Airline could not handle the two hour fog delay which led to tremendously long ticket desk lines and violently angry customers. Terrible experience for staff and customers."

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and kind."
Cons: "The check in at MXP took us a lot of time and there was no defined line for people to wait without other people can pass them. Some how there is people who stand in line for 10 minutes and others for 40 minutes, the ground attendants didn’t really cared about it."

Cons: "My ticket was messed up completely (GYD-IST-VAR-IST). First leg did not book (close) it properly, I have lost 1 hour at trasfer desk in IST (they were solving my ticket issue for that long) and another hour in VAR on the way back (because the TK staff did not solve it right the first time). Lousy work of service desk! I was lucky to keep boarding passes as the proof, because nobody believed, that I duly arrived from Baku."

Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."

Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"

Pros: "While my family and I were waiting for boarding in chairs in front of the gate, my little child falet down and had very minor cut with one blood sign and drop but first aid group came and made some tissue cleaning to the cut with detergent. They told me that medical report is required by the flight captain and this report will cost me 230 TL. I told them no need for their report but they told me that I may not travel and the male misbehaved againest my wife when she told him that no need for their medical assistant and he replied this is not your country. They sqwezed us at the last minute and my remaining family at the plane and they told me that I am not authorized to travel with my wife and small child. We are total of 9 passingers.

Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled ten days prior to departure. Nothing to do with weather. Without my permission they, booked my return flight with a 20 hour layover in Istanbul airport. I had to buy a new ticket home on a different airline. Waiting for a refund which currently seems impossible."

Pros: "Good flight service. Nice STAR lounge in Milan"
Cons: "On line check-in does not remember frequent flier info."

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."

Pros: "I did not fly back with Turkish airlines. I decided not to take a chance. Please read comments below."

Pros: "food was excellent"

Cons: "Have food allergies and could not eat much of lunch."

Pros: "emergency row had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "don't recall getting an email reminder to check in ahead of time, so did when i arrived at airport... i guess this resulted in the emergency row seating, which, while having plenty of leg room, apparently is the least important when it comes to service. overlooked several times, my peers and i in the row had no food choices, and were given what was leftover, often lukewarm."

Cons: "The food was just ok."

Cons: "Always same food each time bad experience"

Pros: "The most amazing service, good food and great steward"

Cons: "I was lost my luggage for my whole trip and I still didn’t get my luggage yet very disappointed !!! You want to answer can you guys do something for me or any ideals"

Cons: "The multiple gate changes & technical delay caused us to miss our connection to Boston"

Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket because they said I was not on my earlier flight two weeks prior. This was absolutely not true. I had taken the flight and also checked bags. For an airline to cancel someones tickets and not notify them is highly unethical."

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Crew was OK, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No choice for food, for the last rows only pasta was left, bad calculation on crew side"

Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "Too cramped for a 10 hour flight"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Pros: "Boarding process and email updates."
Cons: "Business class on European domestic flights is nothing more than coach seats with no one seated in the middle. Better than coach, but not by much and not worth the extra money."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Seat hardly reclines at all."

Cons: "Stuck in Frankfurt due to weather which I understand but no one helped us navigate the customer service lines and it was utter chaos!!! I stood in line for four!!!! Hours and did not get checked on once then i found out I did that for no reason and i had to wait In another line for almost two hours!!! Then then next day my flight was delayed for four!!! Hours due to engine issues and they had to get a new plane so the rerouted two flights had To be canceled And I was stuck overnight again in Dallas. No one met me at the gate or had anything to say to me. Not really one ounce of customer service . I could tell it was Hard with the airport closing due to weather but this is an international flight and someone could have done something to help me just navigate the process over the three day period. One woman who I finally talked to in Frankfurt spent an hour with me when i was utterly exhausted and there were No more flights or hotels left She was To be commended. The rest was chaos and exhausting and I still have another flight tomorrow."

Pros: "Cabin service and crew excelent"
Cons: "LH App not work had hard time getting seat and boarding pass online. Flight canceled LH 444 rebooked next day. While they not say I believe consolidation due to light passenger load. Long walk FRA outbound but short walk home bound. Went on bus to plane no jetway boarding."

Cons: "Not there. Still in germany"

Cons: "The flight was running late, but that was minor. Not an inconvenience for me."

Pros: "they did good job"

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Pros: "Plain in excellent condition and very clean. Friendly staff and welcome."
Cons: "Should have mobile phone chargers on board."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."

Pros: "Flight was on par with other budget airlines. No frills means not having the extras."
Cons: "Paid for premium seat not really worth it. Less leg room and no convienent storage."

Cons: "I traveled to Italy for Vacation. Both times, LH925 on 1st May from Heathrow to Frankfurt was delayed by 20 Mins. and TReturn on 9th May, LH327 from Venice to Frankfurt was delayed by 20 Mins. Late arrivals caused extra stress on Connections and We had to run across the airport to catch the connecting flight. Flight getting delayed both ways makes me rethink about LH Flights. I will be careful and wont like to travel on LH ."

Pros: "Operated by Lufthansa. Attentive flight attendant. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "It was a smooth ride overall, the staff was comfort us."
Cons: "The food was terrible is like each year the value goes down."

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "Everything went as smoothly as possible. Would definitely recommend."

Pros: "On time. Smoothe boarding. No poor food. In general a pleasantly uneventful flight."
Cons: "I checked my one small siitcase which easily fitsin the overhead binas the ticket agent told me it was a full flight and thus required. My hand luggage was my handbag. The flight was actually 2/3 full with plenty of empty seats and empty bin space. Most passengers had 2pieves of hand luggage. So I had to wait for luggage at the end of the flight when I could have easily stored it overhead."

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "I got the meal of my choice. Excellent attention and check in experience was smooth and quick"

Pros: "flight on time The crew as friendly and professional"
Cons: "I was not able to pick my seat in advance. The entertainment was geared to children or older movies. Food mediocre We were told about our flight change but not about what we needed to change until we tried to check in on our last day of our trip wasting time on our last day flight ful and packed in to small seats"

Pros: "Quiet and comfortable for a regional, one hour flight."
Cons: "Getting bussed all over the airport ."

Pros: "Both airports were great, food and shopping extremely convenient. very clean airports as well"
Cons: "#1 at Venice, allow the customers who checked in online to drop bags faster by giving them a separate line. And the online payment for bags was not user-friendly Venice should have a bus shuttle for the older folks from the Water Taxi to the terminal and one person to monitor the security at this location at all times. A few more signs in multiple languages at the security checkpoint would have made the line go faster. Same thing at the ticket check-in counter."

Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Pros: "The fight left on time and got us to Frankfurt"

Cons: "It was a really rainy day and we all had to get on shuttles to get to our plane. Once we reached the plane, the crew should have facilitated an orderly boarding through both doors rather than one. This was also a pretty empty flight and other passengers were utilizing their assigned seat as well as a whole other row and calling it theirs just because they set something on one seat. It didn't seem right that some of us had to stay in our little crowded area while others used up 4 seats and I don't mean for laying down."

Pros: "The seats were roomy, the flight staff was attentive and very efficient. The plane was clean and offered many different movies to watch. They even had new releases on those list along with games and music. I truly enjoyed my first experience with this airline!"
Cons: "They offered alternative media for people with dietary restrictions and I didn't know this when I booked. I'm gf and they could have accommodated, had I known."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "For such a long flight needing to use a personal device for in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "I slept the entire flight, so no real observations or comments"

Pros: "The flight to Frankfurt was pleasant, boarding went smoothly, and the service was great. Overall good experience"

Pros: "The staff was so prompt and friendly"
Cons: "Cramped leg space, no entertainment"

Pros: "A fast, smooth, and easy flight with a polite and efficient crew. The Frankfurt airport needs some type of internal transportation or reorganization because the size and shape make it a challenge to go through passport control and find your gate in time to transfer."
Cons: "The snack consisted of sugary packaged cookies. After waking at 6 a.m. to catch my flight, I would have preferred plain yogurt with fruit or muesli, or at least a nutritious nutty bar such as the KIND brand. The boarding consisted of everyone standing in a disorganized line next to another long line so that I was not sure if I was in the right place and felt nervous as the time to board drew near. Staff did not seem to be communicating what was happening and were not circulating. I had to ask fellow passengers if I was in the right line and on the right bus. We pushed away from the gate early. This worked against me at the beginning of my vacation when I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to the disorganized nature of the Frankfurt airport and its massive size."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Quiet flight... Nice service ... Paying extra for added leg room in economy was definitely worth it."

Pros: "Friendly staff, upper deck was spacious, good beverage service, good movie selection. Lufthansa is my favorite airline to fly."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Landing"

Cons: "Austrian could learn from the likes of singapore airlines and cathay pacific: the choice of movies was pretty limited (1 italian, 1 french, 1 spanish) and the games were simply boring. The food was ok, breakfast pretty terrible (breed but no butter, reconstructiesergramingtheworstieverate.Stodwoowfs"

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Depart on time"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "In flight crew worked hard"
Cons: "No lines for boarding - it was a mess And randomly we were asked to check in our bags though Austrian crew had earlier tagged them for carry on"

Cons: "Seat spacing is small, to the point that it's impossible to remain in the seat few hours without physical pain in your body"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "The crew was super attentive but also knew when to leave people alone and rest with the lights out. The entertainment selection and food were above average."
Cons: "The seat I was in (37 H) was awful, if felt much more cramped than the flight to Macedonia. I felt like I was crammed into a sardine can. The boarding process in Vienna was a joke; the economy seats were all boarded at once; in effect a mass of humanity all rushing toward the gate."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "My wife and I were separated by six rows. Unacceptable!"

Cons: "The 34 minute flight was delayed by almost 2 hours."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Small space in middle seat"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Seat !!"

Pros: "Seat size was decent, not like us airlines, there’s actually space for you knees."

Cons: "Passengers should be notified of the process of changing airplanes at Vienna. What a nightmare. We were scheduled for 50 minutes between flights. Not really enough. If we were aware of what was required it may have helped, however the distance we had to walk was rather extreme."

Pros: "The crew was superb. Extended leg room seats had a lot of legroom. Good wines, decent dinner."
Cons: "Very strict carry on policies, much strictet than US carrieers, primarily by weight. Known traveler numbers (Glibal Entry) were not askrd at the time of online check in and ad a result, TSA Pre didnt show up on out boarding passes. Agent at the counter coulsnt dix it euther. Surprisingly, very disappointing breakfast."

Cons: "I didn't like that I paid for a ticket months ago and checked in my bags and then was told that there's no room the plain is full"

Pros: "Smooth ride, good breakfast and charming flight attendant."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "new plane, half empty, good and friendly service"

Cons: "Main meal was a little funky and boarding is always a hassle"

Pros: "Macedonian staff were very helpful when I arrived early to get me checked in and situated"

Cons: "I tried to reschedule due to a death in the family and due to the "small print" this was not possible. Then when I did travel, it turned out I didn't have the right for a piece luggage (again "small print"). I paid for the extra piece and I was double-charged (same amount withdrawn twice). Now I have opened a complained with Austrian and they haven't responded so far."

Cons: "flt was delayed 2 hours due to "employee meeting""

Pros: "too short to tell."
Cons: "Not applicable"

Cons: "Hot meal was awful"

Cons: "Food part was missing."

Cons: "See previous comments"

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: "Nothing! I ended up losing my plane ticket because of Austrian Airlines lack of empathy with me."
Cons: "First I lost my United Airlines flight because of security reasons. I checked in Guatemala but I was delayed at the Airport's security too long, it was beyond my control. Consequently I got to the boarding gate right when they were closing. Consequently I lost all my connections from then on. The United Airlines was very empathizing with me and my situation and they issued me other boarding passes at no cost. United Airlines suggested me to tell the Austrian Airlines about what happened and they were sure the Austrian Airlines would understand but they were wrong; no understanding on behalf of the Austrian Airlines."

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 2 hours because a crew member did not have the proper paperwork. This is incompetence. The trip was long enough w/o adding another two hours due to poor planning. This was completely preventable."

Cons: "I was at the back of the plane with the constant cold air breeze, it was impossible to avoid!. I caught heavy cold and still recovering!"

Pros: "Free drinks."

Pros: "My flight from Vienna to Warsaw was fine."

Cons: "Boarding in Vienna was completely unorganized. Received zero instruction from crew on new boarding information."

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "IT WOES HAREBELL. 4 HOURS BEFORE THE FLIGHT THEY TELL NE THETA WE DOESN`T HAVE PLIES ON THE FLIGHT. THE MAN IN DESC 377 GAVE TO ME BIRDING CARD TO GET G. IN STAND-BY. THER FLIGHT 599 NOT ON THE BORD. AT THE HEAD OFFICE OFF THE OSTREIN CCOMPANY IN GAT G TELL TO WAIT. HALF HOUR LATER STILL THE FLIGHT NO ON THE BORD AND I RAN EAGEN TO OFFICE OF OSTRIEN END NOW THEY SAD IT`S MESTEK AND I IN GET F . NOW WE MAST MAKE THE SECURITY CHECK OVER AGAIN . WE RAN TO GET F TO FLOOR DAWN . IN THE END...WE GET BORDING CARD WITH SEPARATED SETS."
Cons: "RUDENESS INSOLENCE RATTLE, RUN-AROUND MISTAKE, OR EVIL"

Pros: "Everything was great except seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "Behavior of AA"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and the flight was pleasant."

Cons: "Austrian cancelled my flight from berlin and rebooked me 2 :/6: later without even letting me know, like if I don't have anything else to do than wait in berlin for 2 days!"

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Attended more to German speaking passengers and were out right rude to those who spoke no German and little English"

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: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Cons: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."

Pros: "friendly, helpful crew"
Cons: "I paid a premium to book a direct flight (ages ago) and then had to rerouted last minute (same day) with no reason given other than "it's our fault". I inquired about paying to change destination city and or seat to a premium seat (for the 9+ hour flight) when I recvd the reservations for the new flights that were made at the airport around 8am for flights that left at around noon and 3pm. I was told no better seat(s) was available. However, a half hour before the flight was boarded several announcements were made regarding all the upgrades that were available. Liars annoy me."

Pros: "The crew was nice and the entertainment was okay."
Cons: "It was impossible to make a seat reservation--impossible. When I asked Air Canada they said contact Austrian Airlines. When I asked them they said get in touch with United. Then I was told I could book a seat 24 hours in advance. When I got email I couldn't--said I had to do it at the gate. When I got to the gate I was told I had a seat in the middle of the plane. Not true I was at the back of the plane. Just awful"

Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."

Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"

Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
