Everything was fine

Everything was fine

Everything was good, but at Philadelphia airport, immigration service was so poor.

Horrible Airline. They kept me in Lagos for 2 days after I was scheduled to fly. Reason, flight has been overbooked. I am never using this airline again.

👍

Pros: "Excellent services"
Pros: "The crew was very good. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom."
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Pros: "Plane quite empty so lots of space."
Cons: "Service not very attentive, had to repeatedly ask."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Meals are absolutly terrible, confort desaster, and hostess unqualified"
Cons: "The aircraft delayed taking off from Doha to Dallas"
Pros: "Crew and food."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Excellent food, service and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Great service onboard!!"
Cons: "Checkin at Zurich!!!Waited two hours in line to weigh in... Staff was friendly but not enough staff"
Pros: "Food was quite good along with service"
Cons: "No entertainment or tv monitors - 6 hours of no movies!!!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing."
Pros: "Food , good accommodation, friendly treat!"
Cons: "No thing really!"
Pros: "The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."
Pros: "Boarding was great as well as comfort and crew. the flight was ok"
Cons: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map. There was no remote unlike the B787 between MAN and DOH. Pre-download things on laptops, tablets, phones or whatever ifyou are not going to sleep on the flight. It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("
Pros: "Seating and comfort is great, as long as you are not seated next to a 'larger' person or a person with restricted mobility. Not a fault of Qatar airways, but probably the norm in most international flights in Economy. Food was the best of all the airlines I have flown, and the correct temperature as well."
Cons: "Seat width could be a little better, but this is the norm, I would assume across all airlines."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Too long, lol"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Flat bed in business. Crew as such nothing great."
Pros: "The THOUGHT it would be a nice flight than usual from Asia to the USA, but it wasn't. Doha Airport was an interesting stop early I'm the morning"
Cons: "No outlets on either flight or in the airport so can't use electrics for almost the entire trip. The seats are extremely narrow to the point out of unprobabability to have your own space even if sitting next to regular build person. Food was only ok and service was below average with trash often not collected and needing to request water etc"
Pros: "great entertainment system friendly staff"
Cons: "very cramped flight, even when just partially full light food for an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "Love the service, love the crew!"
Cons: "The flight attendant dropped a suitcase on my head when I was sleeping. I had terrible headache, nauseous, and dizzy with some really uncomfortable neck pain. The staff tried to get me to take medicines that I could not read for nauseous but I would not. They said they were prescribed by a doctor! What doctor. The flight was the longest worst ever! 14 hours - nothing to eat or drink! In addition, the head flight attendant said the baggage compartment over my head was a problem as it opens all the way down and bags fall easily out. The bag was easily 30 pounds and landed directly on my head. I suffered a concussion."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food is below average. Very salty tofu salad, and they keep giving the same food in every leg."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Extra hour that takes to do this flight because we have to fly around Saudi Arabia....."
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "Ground crew was helpful On Time Flight Clean aircraft Good food"
Cons: "seat was not much comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing. Despite booking Qatar Airways for both legs the transfer distance is incredibly far. Only just made connecting flight!"
Cons: "Why does it take 2 hours to get all passengers on board? Why only one exit/ entry point to board/ disembark for an Airbus 440? The mist inefficient organization of passenger logistics you can imagine Hopeless airports..useless Airlines"
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The food is lowering in quality as time passes. It's very disappointing to see one of Qatar Airways advantages lowering in quality."
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In their Business Class they only had two shower room and they wait was 7 hours! I now totally dont trust Kayak and it's ratings. Qatar Airways sucks!"
Pros: "Even in coach the service is great. The crew is professional and courteous. Food is great too!"
Pros: "Awesome staff, super delicious food. Missed the flight, but airlines covered stay in Hotel in Doha. So we hot extra vacation day In Qatar with nice food and stay in a country we have never been"
Cons: "We have missed connecting flight from Doha to Oslo because of bad weather and had to stay in Doha, Qatar for 16hours. But airline took care of all passengers, organized 5*hotel in heart of Doha with luxurious food in the hotel restaurant"
Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"
Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"
Pros: "Very comfortable, great staff, entertainment options were huge! New aircrafts with comfort in mind."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "Again, our flight was cancelled without notification!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew and the airline was a great experience."
Cons: "I wish there was more leg space between the seats."
Pros: "F"
Cons: "I have booked the flight for my mom and I requested a wheel chair her, she Has a broken arm . And I booked the flight with this company cos I thought they have a great service, but not what I expected, they didn't provide a wheel chair and she has to drag all the bag with one working arm , so I m not pretty satisfied with the trip at all and I won't fly with th company any more"
Cons: "Headrests on quatar airways are uncomfortable , especially for someone who is short and neck gets very stiff"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
Cons: "Seats are pretty cramped, food quality was ok didn't have a lot of variety in inflight movies."
Cons: "Not allowing water on the flight made it extremely long and unbearable."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is always impressing"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

totally it was good

Not clean

Lot more variety in the food to enhance the travel experience

Departure times were late

My flight got cancelled several times, I booked my flight through Fly. us, that was throughly KAYAK engine, I regret my decision to do that, because fly. Us has horrible service no communication what do ever, I contacted them, called them several time but no response so far, I called airline they said they will refund to fly. Us if they request but after 1 week and half no response from them. Please only use direct airline sites during COVID times because flight cancellations is very common during COVID time, so that you guys can avoid trouble of middle man.

Pros: "Amazing crew.comfortable seats"
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable and crew was amazing."
Cons: "Food food food. Things have gotten from average to worse in recent times. Specially Travelling from United States out to Dubai."
Pros: "the food is amazing"
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "Boarding system did not work temporarily and the boarding was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed flight and the procedures took very long."
Pros: "The overall trip was amazing"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "no"
Cons: "food was average"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Cons: "On our departure flight the entertainment system stopped working completely at my daughter's seat mid-flight (the whole screen went black, remote control and all). The flight attendant tried and was unable to fix it, so they moved a passenger in the row my husband and I were in and put my daughter there. None of the entertainment systems worked well, the touch screens were barely responsive - they definitely need updating. On our return flight the power in the whole row that my three pre-teen kids were in stopped working. Again the flight attendant tried unsuccessfully to fix. My husband and I switched rows with them so they could continue to watch movies. Each time we called the flight attendant she came, said she would try to reset the systems and that we should wait a few minutes. We waited and ultimately had to go find her again to be told the same thing again. After this happened three times she sent the manager over who said she could not fix it since that would mean that the whole area would have to be reset and they didn't want to disturb anyone else. The only solution they offered was to give my husband and I open seats (not together and not near our kids) around the cabin. We did not want to split up, so my husband and I spent the rest of the hours of the flight in the dark (lights didn't work either as they are connected to the system) reading with the light from our cell phones. None of the people who came to assist us really seemed to care at all about our comfort or situation."
Cons: "there was a delay in Munich by Emirates which led to the flight from Dubai to Kuwait, which took off from below, leaving us at Dubai airport"
Pros: "We liked the service that was given, the crew member was nice."
Cons: "We didn’t like how are seats were all messed up, my kids, my wife had all different seatings."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "Delayed departure. Unable to catch up time. Landed late. Bus took a very long time. Missed the connecting flight"
Cons: "Hotel with all meals provided."
Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."
Pros: "Nothing comfort level very low. Very poor service. Looks like how to make more money by robbing customers"
Cons: "Bought the ticket from internet after paying found baggage allowance only 20kg tried to contact airline additional 10 kg luggage price was more than the price of ticket. Seating was awfully I am 6'3" did not fit in middle seat requested several times for isle seat my legs were sticking out each time I have to get up to let pass the passengers and staff safety hazard. Have to pay additional 70 pounds sterling for under 3kg."
Pros: "so much service, I turned down breakfast."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "It's time to check the competition."
Cons: "Emirates is (just) OK in a business class (never trier economy in Emirates), but I have a very strong feeling they should be much better. Cabine interior should be much better (it's old, seats are not full beds and are somehow narrow). Food offering should be improved (continental breakfast - what king of cost-cutting is that???). What is really good is in-flight entertaintement system. But you don't pay for a business class to watch movies, right?"
Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Cons: "movies selection"
Cons: "I am a 76 yr old traveller, did not get the change in flight schedule until I booked my flight. I was at Dubai airport for over 12 hours waited for the 3AM flight that took another 14 hours. Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."
Cons: "I have transit for 18 hours and they did not give me a hotel I had to pay for it because they were saying my ticket is not eligible are you really get disappointed from this"
Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"
Pros: "Food, comfort, service -- all excellent for the 10hr flight from Athens to NYC! Hands down better than any other airline I've flown with for same number of hours and distance."
Cons: "While there was much in the way of options for entertainment, navigating the system & touch screen was a pain. Often the mouse doesn't follow your touch and you end up clicking things you didn't mean to click + having to press multiple times."
Pros: "The crew make Emirates great.....but the tools they have make the job easy."
Cons: "Found the seatbelt a little tight when sleeping, as it has to go over the blanket"
Cons: "They are lied about my hotel I was airport 12 with out room"
Pros: "Loved the flight crew...very friendly and attentive. Also love the entertainment options."
Cons: "Would love a little more legroom. Paid for high bandwidth wifi...pretty spotty service"
Pros: "Great Ambience. Excellent Crew. Tasty Food."
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "We were not made aware to go get snacks from the serving areas ourselves. We waited to be served. Finally figured it out. The seat near the exits were close to the pantry so could not sleep due to noises of the trays and serving atea. Those seats should cost cheaper ."
Pros: "Mostly everything"
Cons: "The chair and the food"
Pros: "Great experience would Defo use them for our next trip."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "Great service, food can be improved. Stop serving pizza it is not healthy and not appropriate for half the passengers"
Pros: "The check in was good. The flight was good and the hosts were ok."
Cons: "The quality of food overall on Emirates has gone down. The food doesn't taste as fresh as it used to and it is a bit dry. I used to enjoy the little dried bread bits with the sweet and sour sauce- that has since been discontinued. We were also promised a festive meal on our flight from JNB to Hong Kong on Christmas day but got a regular meal- very disappointing"
Cons: "My baggage was ripped and the material inside was damaged. Never expected that from Emirates."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Airplane was amazing and the aurlines crew awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "AC and sound system from DXB to BH"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Due to an accident the flight was redirected which I understand but when we landed in Bahrain it took four hour for Emirates to organize a hotel then we did not fly out until 15 hours latter on top of that there was no communication or assistance with connecting flights. I missed my connection and was charged another me to fly the following day. This could have been avoided with better communication."
Cons: "I requested (at least 2 months ago) for a cake for my daughters Birthday which was on July 5th. I made the request over phone calling customer service in NY. Unfortunately it was not honored. When I called 2 days before the flight departure just to verify, I was told by the telephone Representative that the request was cancelled by Emirates as it was not entered properly ( ? ). And she can not do anything about that. Though the request was entered by Emirates Employee and Emirates just cancelled the request and did not bother to notify me. My daughter was so upset and was crying , and nothing I could do to make her happy. I will never fly Emirates again."

Great flight!

Horrible flight...No entertainment...So many passengers left without food...Food items should be changed as it took more time to serve one customer...Remove poha,noodles,dal chaval ,upma and include sandwich or other ready-made food...So as staff can take very little time to serve all.

Significant delays occur

I am very disappointed because they have no consideration for the traveler comfort

Cons: "Good food and entertainment. Flight started in delay as usual with Turkish"
Cons: "If the disembarking didn't take 45 minutes."
Pros: "Love love love this airlines! I wish the US carriers were like this!"
Cons: "Great service, friendly team and most importantly great food"
Pros: "Everything good"
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and the food was good."
Cons: "Security in Istanbul on return flight required me to exit transfer area, pay $30 visa fee and check a set of hiking poles. This was not a requirement on the three other legs of this flight reservation."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good Turkish food, plenty of movie choices, etc. Overall good."
Cons: "Seating space just too small for tall people: elbow room and front distance (awkward eating with long arms in confined space). But This is standard for most airplanes in economy class."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. We were served beverages and a tasty (by American airlines standards) sandwich on the less than 1 1/2 hour flight"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, late and somewhat disorganized."
Pros: "I liked nothing about this flight!"
Cons: "No matter the airlines, all passengers going through immigration wait in long lines, no ropes but rather a big free for all. Push and shove."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Food wasn't terrible."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. No staff at Gate counter until the very last minute (Munich Intl. Airport)."
Cons: "They stole Items from my bag"
Pros: "The flight went well with no complaints."
Cons: "With Airlines in the US charging for almost everything except the air you breath while on their plane I hate to complain about the meal Turkish provided free but a couple of the items on the tray could have been better."
Pros: "The flight to Munich was really good and comfortable. But the lay over was 15 hours and I not given anywhere to sleep or rest. I was told that I would be compt a room but never revived it. Sitting in an overcrowded Airport in Turkey was so uncomfortable and miserable. Boarding was very long lines and went through so many check points. But the staff was very friendly on board. Praise God I made it home safe."
Cons: "The lay over from Munich Germany to The US in the Turkey Airport was So Uncomfortable and Miserable. I was told that I would be given a room but never received it. The Airport was severely overcrowded all night and day. I was going to use Turkey monthly to go back to Germany but I probably won't now."
Pros: "No any trouble during flight."
Cons: "Too long distance between terminals and very short time between my connecting flights make it almost not possible."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines does a fantastic job. I won’t fly any other airline to Greece. For the value and service it is second to none."
Cons: "Good service."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Horrible seats, earphones hit or miss, cabin littered throughout, staff didn’t clean up from time to time, nor check that seats were up/belts fastened."
Cons: "My only complaint would have to be that their bathrooms on the plane were a dirty. Other then that the airlines was excellent!!!! I would definitely recommend Turkish Airlines to family and friends."
Pros: "Good Service!"
Cons: "Miss Plane due to long line for security check at Munich Airport. So I miss my Plane! Turkish Airline wanted to charge me $798 one way from Munich to JFK USA to rebook flight! so I book a flight with another airline in Munich way cheaper! Turkish Airways is blacklisted for LIFE! after trying to charge me the price of a round trip for a one way rebooking!"
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "Crew and the plane. I believe Turkish Air is using its worst planes to fly to Karachi."
Pros: "The food was excellent and tasty"
Cons: "Long wait for the toilet"
Cons: "There were NO entertainment screens. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Nothing to do for 3 hours."
Pros: "Very helpful crew. Entertainment choices of movies, tv, music was excellent. Got on and off the plane quickly which was very appreciated."
Cons: "Seats were stiff-too upright to get comfortable for a long flight."
Pros: "upon checkin I received a seat w extra legroom for both flights"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "-nothing"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Air conditioning was out upon boarding and went out again before landing"
Pros: "Everything this airline goes out of their way to make the flier happy and pleased, food and entertainment superb and American Airlines in general should learn from them"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The friendly and respectful and patient staff :)"
Cons: "The "Pasta-cheeze" meal on TK 31 was horribly bland, reminded me of the gruesome meals I had on United Airlines. I was totally shocked, because all other meals were excellent."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The disorganization and misinformation was unprecedented. I have been traveling for 30 years and tried almost all airlines, but the Turkish Airline office at Cairo Airport ranked the poorest I have ever seen. The disorganization was as if they do not know what to do. First they said the plane arrived late, then they said there was a bird hitting the engine. The excuses were so laughable beyond belief."
Cons: "Everything was high level"
Pros: "Love it"
Pros: "food was great, service-excellent, friendly staff"
Cons: "flight left an hour late"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, quick boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment, bad food"
Pros: "Food was fine and entertainment system was great. Watched movies the whole way. We arrived 1 hour early."
Cons: "I was pulled aside for extra security. That was fine but there were a few other passengers that should have been pulled over for extra security besides me. It took an extra 20 minutes for me to board the plane because of this and when I arrived to my seat an Arab woman was sitting in my place and refused to move to the middle seat. She said she could not and would not sit next to a man who was sitting on the other side. If this is a problem from the start, there should be a way to choose a seat according to gender. The stewardess found me another place in front of this woman who kicked my seat the whole way. She even argued with the stewardess about putting her suitcase above her in the rack and security was almost called. There should be something included in the flight information program about being polite to other passengers."
Pros: "Plane was new and clean. Food was fresh and tasted good. Entertainment included a wide variety of new movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Service was mediocre and poor at times. The staff did not communicate with the passengers. There was an hour delay in take off as we sat on the plane and no explanation. There was also some delay in landing which seems due to poor weather but not communication. They seem nice but could use better training."
Pros: "the service"
Cons: "the entertainment"
Pros: "Liked the food and service"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I didn't book any flight. Don't know why you think i did. I hope the actual person who booked had a nice uneventful travel experience."
Pros: "Standard business seats for short distance. Roomy seats ( business class) . Good service with breakfast."
Cons: "No entertainment system in seat"
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hrs, no explanation given, the ground staff was no where to be found, finally one person showed up and he was not helpful. No formal announcement was made!"
Pros: "Nice clean airplane. Lots of good food and amenities for the price"
Cons: "Staff is a bit rude"
Pros: "The service/ time schedule was correct/ the cleanliness/ the cabin crew were perfect"
Cons: "Nothing is bad as every detail from the flight was awesome"
Pros: "Loved the clean atmosphere and friendly staff."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Starting with the check-in process. It's the 21st century, people should be able to check in electronically. I was traveling with one other person. For whatever reason the seats were not next to eachother. Flying to Munich they were nice enough to look for seats next to eachother, to no avail. Not this time around. The check in line was horrendous, security was horrendous, and the gate process could not have been worse. The service was bad. Requests for water took 15+ minutes to be fulfilled. I also noticed there were not enough non-beef meals on the plane for those who requested with it. Then we landed and the nightmare...continued. Taxiing took 40 minutes. They brought us to three different gates before finally disembarking onto the Tarmac."

Bags did not come

This crew could have made an effort to deliver the passengers to the Vienna on time or to delay departures of the plains that the passengers were connecting to. There is no excuse for what they did to us.

Same problems

The flight was fine, nothing special, but no problems either.

There was no food. I’m not sure if that is due to Covid restrictions or just cutting corners, but I was disappointed.

This was a rough one. The flight itself was fine, and it was nice to have a little Austrian culture on the way to the US. Check-in with Lufthansa at the Munich airport was very unsatisfying - even worse than checking in to a US domestic flight. Long lines, rude service - the first time in my life that I've had an airport check-in person proactively criticize me. And on top of that, they lost my luggage between Vienna and Newark. I waited at the baggage claim area until all the bags were off, and only at the very end did I discover my bags weren't there. By then it was too late to make my connecting domestic flight, even though I had a nearly two hour layover in Newark. A storm was blowing across the northeast, and the lines to change to a new flight were 50 people long. I ended up spending the night (on my own nickel) at an airport hotel and continuing my flight the next day. Even with an 18 hour delay they still hadn't found a way for my luggage to catch up to me. Overall, a pretty lousy experience.

The crew was visible, helping and offering drinks all the time. The checking at the gate was unprofessional, and the boarding was a mess.

Cons: "Food is looking not fresh and quality is cheep ...."
Pros: "Austrian Airlines is the best! Crew, food, drinks, entertainment, and plugins were all provided, and it was all very nice (and delicious food!)."
Cons: "Nothing! Love Austrian Airlines!"
Cons: "1:20 min delay for a 35 min flight (less then 200km on the road). It is even worse if it is during the night (aircraft landed at 0:40 instead of 23:20"
Pros: "Organisation"
Cons: "Short flight but not quite comfortable seats."
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."
Pros: "I was able to get good seats, front of the plane. 3rd row for all my flights. pretty decent leg room"
Cons: "flight was delayed, 2nd Austtian flight delayed in the same day"
Pros: "thebflight wqs smooth and on time"
Cons: "snack they gave something sweet at 07:00 AM"
Pros: "Great to be able to check in bags at the CAT railway station in the morning. Cabin crew were excellent- very friendly and helpful and did two drinks services. Austrian’s cabin crew sets them apart on European routes."
Pros: "Excellent crew, delicious Austrian wine, only a short flight so only some nibbles to eat which was fine."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best, quite hard on the middle back."
Pros: "On time, best connection for me, earning miles on my program. I booked based on time and cost, didn't even pay attention to what airline."
Cons: "No food, plane felt pretty old and not so clean. Smaller seats than the other flights I had with Lufthansa. Otherwise, it was fine. I had a pretty bad earache on that particular flight, so I liked it less than I might have otherwise. Something didn't feel right, pressure wrong or something."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "Fligth attemdance atention"
Cons: "Delay in the departure (40 min)"
Pros: "The boarding process was short and quick. Entertainment choices were excellent."
Cons: "I was hoping for a more traditional Austrian meal but the food was just fine."
Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."
Pros: "Medical help"
Cons: "Delay...."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and spoke English They brought drinks. Seats were very nice and plane seemed new and very clean They handed out card decks to the kids."
Cons: "Can’t like it if you missed it!!"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."
Pros: "Again as in previous flight very efficient professional and pleasant staff ."
Cons: "Seat reservation system didn't work ,reserved one seat and got another.Food portions were smallish .No internet over the Atlantic .While the multimedia service was phenomenal I guess there could have been a larger variety and more episodes would have been good as well ."
Cons: "THey denied me and I lost all tickets including back trips as well. Nobody helped me to change tickets, they just care about money and reselling my tickets to other passengers."
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Cons: "There was plenty of space, and so I rven had a chance to catch some sleep on the transatlantic flight. But Uktimately, unless you are travelling in luxury, transatlantic flights are awful."
Pros: "Nice flight freindly staff"
Cons: "Not comfertable chairs"
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: "I would suggest to make up some how for my lost as I had other problems derived from missing my United Airlines but so far every body has been very understanding. For example selling me a new ticket at a special price or with some benefit - I WILL NEED TO FLY TO VIENNA AND KIEV AGAIN WITHIN 6 MONTHS - otherwise; I doubt I would ever buy a Austrian plane ticket again. I AM FLYING ON POLISH AIRLINES RIGHT NOW OCT 25TH."
Cons: "When I try to make the change of itinerary on Austrian Airlines on the selling web page, they told me to contact the Austrian Airlines, so I did. The Austrian Airlines lady who told me that I would just lose my tickets and that I could not even pay a penalty to avoid such thing, was very VERY RUDE!! As the Austrian Airlines did not offer me an option but losing my plane ticket,"
Cons: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."
Pros: "Speaking of friendly sky. Great!"
Pros: "Very well organozed"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Hi there, the gate for the flight was changed at the last minute and I missed the connecting flight from Frankfurt to Vienna. I was told by staff that there would be a 300 Euro fee, plus the cost of the next flight. This broke my heart. why I wouldn't I simply be put on standby and get on the next flight? I ended up travelling by to Vienna by train, over the course of the next several days. I am a lone woman with a developmental disability, travelling to Europe for the first time. It was very disappointing to be treated this way. Thanks for reading."
Cons: "I should have been put on the next connecting flight, rather than turned away to fend for myself in a foreign city."
Pros: "Everything was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "When I was boarding all representatives was very unfriendly and I would say they were rude."
Cons: "Delayed flight after an already long flight from the states"
Cons: "Although AU blamed late arrival of the plane from Russia, fact is that the plane was at least one hour at the dock before boarding and the AU team was just extremely slow to get boarding done. We were all invited 45 minutes before boarding to board, when apologies were already offered for the slight delay, which turned into 1.5 hour overall. Worst is the lack of communication during the 45 minute wait, for which I have little understanding seeing many older people clearly suffering."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled! ended up flying to Athens the next day"
Pros: "Very carrying crew, kind and attentive"
Cons: "Not too many choices for entertainment, a lot of Asian movies. Food was OK"
Pros: "Everything was fine - short flight"
Pros: "The hostess are very friendly, good customer knowledge with worm smiles. My name is mulugeta Assefa"
Cons: "The service is outstanding I love it. The hostess are very friendly and they have excellent customer service knowledge. I'm happy. ..thanks..... My name is mulugeta Assefa"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Pros: "Attentive flight attendants"
Cons: "At 11h30 of 14/9 we (HOANG MINH CHAU and NGUYEN SI THANH) were standing at the ticket counter in Vienna and we could not check in due to no payment yet for the ticket and so the reservation has been cancelled. Due to this reason we had have to buy new tickets at the airport ticketing counter. So please sort out your problem with the airline and get back to me. From my bank the payment has been done yet to you. We had have double pay for one trip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes and arrived 2 hours later."
Pros: "Seat back tv’s"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, food was mediocre at best"
Pros: "A very quick flight, but the crew was quite friendly!"
Cons: "I would have liked for there to have been a gluten-free snack available."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the food was decent."
Cons: "Strippers"
Pros: "The flight on time. Good crew. Good service."
Pros: "The flight was seamless,appreciated the frequent food and drink service"
Cons: "The boarding was priority and then everyone else. Didn’t realize economy boarding had no real order."
Pros: "The red wine was good and the crew made sure that we were well hydrated. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The quality of the meals was poor - tasteless food, possibly loaded with preservatives."
Pros: "Cabin crew's service was excellent! Very attentive and friendly. Special diet (gluten-free) dinner was delicious. Lavatories located downstairs."
Cons: "Economy seating was too tight. Not enough space or leg room."
Pros: "Flight attendants Was nice and friendly, I do like theirs Sevice ."
Pros: "Loved it!"
Cons: "Liked it all"
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."
Cons: "Could not choose seats online,"
Pros: "Spacious and quiet aircraft, lots of legroom in certain exit row seats. Friendly cabin crew. Compared to the loud and bumpy ride on the Lufthansa 747, the A380 was way better."
Cons: "Moderate delays at each end—waiting for transfer passengers delayed our departure half an hour. We made up the time en route but then sat on the tarmac at LAX because the gate was occupied. I think my seat mates missed their connection. They broke the handle on my rollaboard (checked due to stingy cabin baggage allowance)."
Pros: "Great, polite, and well dressed flight attendants. All flight attendants treated us with care, they were kind, and provided exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff and food were exceptional!"
Cons: "Late arrival in Munich, missed connection to Krakow, no rebooking and nobody cared that we, 3 people, get to our destination the same day. Spent 12 hours ( 10 am to 10 pm ) at Munich airport not knowing if and/or when we get on the plane, hoping to be on 10 pm flight, not making any connection all day long. Suggestions to fly through different city or on different airline we’re met with shrug and “ not possible “ reply. Having one Omaha Krakow Lufthansa ticket made no difference to anybody. Horrible experience specially that one of us was 80 years old. Will never fly with Lufthansa again. None of my friends will. Dreading my flight back. Kasia Bradley"
Cons: "During the main meal many many passengers had no option for the main dish.. Only vegetarian dish! Many passengers didn't eat."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Food use to be better"
Cons: "Got a little hot in the cabin"
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Pros: "I enjoyed the patience of the crew and the responsibility they took with everything they did."
Cons: "The noise and the lack of space in my specific area."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Cons: "The flight was transferred to a smaller plane, either because there were few passengers (the first story we heard) or because of mechanical problems on the original craft (the second story). Business class was oversold as a result, and boarding was delayed for an hour while they waited for enough BC passengers to accept 800 euros for the downgrade to economy plus. They repeatedly threatened to cancel the flight rather than raise the offer. Eventually enough knuckled under and we were allowed to leave. Some no doubt missed connections because of this petty brinkmanship. The funny coda is that because the plane was so undersold, anyone in economy that wanted their own row could have one, while economy plus was packed with the embittered and downgraded."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Convenient connections, fantastic airport, new aircraft with many large toilets in lower deck, super professional crew, really make a big difference when travelling 9 hours with 3 young kids."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air didn't work, stewardess were rude"
Pros: "Munich airport is very nice and clean."
Cons: "The plane was late arriving and we had to sit on the tarmac after we got to Frankfurt for a while which made us only have 15 minutes to go through customs and get our connecting flight. The staff would not let us get off first on the plane even though I told them we were very very late. Ridiculous to have to wait for people to stand in the aisles and get their baggage from above. This makes others late and very inconsiderate. Charge people that use the overhead compartment!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "Over the length of the 9.5 hour flight, my time in the Economy class was that the crew were professional, courteous and especially helpful. There is a magnitude of difference between the attitude and professionalism of this airline over any American airline I have flown. In the future, Lufthansa will be my first consideration."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Competent, friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight"
Pros: "Brand new Airbus 350 on the first transatlantic flight for Lufthansa was very nice"
Cons: "There is never enough room in coach. The food was TERRIBLE."
Pros: "On time, helpful crew, clean"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Excellent airplane, very comfortable."
Cons: "Landed very late in Chicago and lost our connection to home. Had to spend the night to catch another flight home in the morning."
Pros: "in flight entertainment, bathrooms, and charging capability"
Cons: "Not enough service/availability of water"
Pros: "Given free upgrade. Efficient services."
Pros: "Love the variety of entertainment options on such a long flight. The food is always so good, you make me feel so cared for."
Pros: "The crew made this flight in my experience. The crew was very professional and quick to respond."
Cons: "The late boarding due to technical and mechanical problems at the airport Lufthansa gate."
Pros: "Even though the flight lasted 12 hours, it was enjoyable. I feel like the crew put the best effort in order to make passengers feel comfortable. They served two meals and two snacks. Beverages were distributed many times. The leg room and the entertaining system were great. I would love to take another flight with this company in the future."
Cons: "I cannot think of anything."
Pros: "The upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient. Food was not bad."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating (a first for me) they really did an outstanding job to make sure we were comfortable...they seemed to be actually enjoying what they were doing :) The food tasted amazing and was plenty..this is also a first for me, I had never said that the food on a flight was good before. The crew walked around the cabin many time throughout the long flight with drinks on their trays (not just the usual drink service) which was much appreciated. Overall they get a 10 from me! This was my first time flying with Lufthansa. I will most definitely fly with them again and recommend to all my friends."
Cons: "the selection of movies could have been a bit better. Although much to choose from such as tv shows etc., more recent movies would have been a plus."
Cons: "we were with 2 kids (1 Child and 1 baby). They ground crew did not allow us to board first (like usually). We had to wait until the economy boarding, it became too crowded and was hard to reach the airplane with the kids. regards"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very small cramped seats in business class. Would not fly again."
Pros: "Easy flight nice bottle of reisling"
Cons: "No on flight entertainment"
Pros: "we love flying with Lufthansa. the staff are always so helpful and accommodating!"
Cons: "the food was good not great and the movie selections wasn't good compared to other flights. The comfort..........well, it's an airplane."
