Pros: "Crew was helpful. Leg room is good. Overall the flight was good."

Pros: "The cabin crew worked hard and were extremely professional and friendly. they are to be commended for this!"
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Pros: "Good leg room"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."

I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"

Pros: "No commutation no help for transit"
Cons: "I am a women no help first time fling with them"
Pros: "Awesome plane, lovely cabin crew, overall went above and beyond to make it as best a flight they could for us! I will definitely fly (and prioritise) emirates as a preferred airline from now on."
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."

Cons: "Delays Always frustrating"
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "This was a short flight, but still they served coffee, tea, and food. Amazing."
Cons: "Not much to say. All was fine on such a short leg of the trip"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, plenty of legroom, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Food service was chaotic, delayed. For the main meal, the hot entree came about 20 mins after we received the tray with the rest of the food. Some snacks advertised were not served at all."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Great space in economy! Great entertainment selection! Great food!"
Cons: "I couldn't hook up my personal earbuds"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very polite in general I like the leg space food was delicious"
Cons: "- crew pick wake me up to ask for my blanket 30 mins before landing - pick up head set when i had 10 mins left on the movie - did not like not having enough space to fit my hand luggage into overhead compartment for the exit seat. - need free internet - could not get online at all"
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Cons: "I booked flight for my husband, however, the credit card authorization process took long and he missed his flight. Hence, the next cheapest available flight was July 3rd. I ended up having to rebook his flight via Air Canada. The payment was processed and accepted immediately. I figured 7 hours was sufficient time to process a payment. It was not. My husband is now incurring additional charges and is missing employment in Canada. I'm looking for some compensation. I have never encountered this wait time when purchasing an airline ticket. Your site/app has great reviews but you need to work on credit card approvals. Thanks for your time and I look forward to being compensated."
Pros: "Great service, decent & hot food options."
Cons: "Could do with a better food & drink selection."
Pros: "The food quality is always good. It was less than a 2 hour flight and yet there was 2 beverage services and one full meal."
Cons: "The plane was booked to capacity and this wasn't one of there larger planes, I think."
Pros: "for long flights they should have a children's section, or at least a section where no children are allowed. We had 15 hours of non stop children, babies and infants bawling! Bummer."
Pros: "Swiss is my new favorite airline."
Cons: "Nothing bad to report. Book Swiss!"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Cons: "70’ late on a 45’ flight"
Pros: "Captain was great !"
Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."
Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "Upon arrival in ZRH, there was a separate small bus for the business class passengers. It was nice to not have to wait for all passengers to deplane before being transported to the terminal."
Pros: "The food was amazing"
Pros: "The seats aren’t the greatest"
Cons: "Just the seats"
Cons: "We didn’t make it to Venice due to delays because Boston wasn’t ready for a snowstorm."

Cons: "They canceled the flight and took me to another company with a stop in Turkey,it was a really bad and uncomfortable flight And I’m really disappointed!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late which made our connection very tight."
Cons: "It was so hot in the plane and there were no air vents to keep air circulating."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "Liked the flight arrangements as convenient. Although left Zurich little bit late, made up time as OK. Thanks for the great experience in using your services."
Cons: "Seating room is very tight, especially for someone who is over 6 feet tall. Wished I alerted Swiss Air in desire to have exit row seats."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of was bad just a regular fight."
Pros: "Flight was exactly on time as described. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
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: "See / hear the middle-aged guy around seat 22 aisle coughing his lungs out throughout the 10 hour flight without once covering his mouth ? WTF is going on w an airline that would let a passenger behave like this ? Didn’t see the attendants offering a cough drop, or asking if he would please behave like a civilized human being. Looking for others corroboration. Spread the word like this guy this w his germs"
Cons: "A grown man coughing loudly during a 10 hr flight w/o once covering his mouth"
Cons: "Penalising passengers who travel on board with only a smaller bag by making them put this under their seat in front in front of them whilst others are bringing on two huge bags"
Pros: "typical Swiss quality"
Cons: "Delay. Missed train connection. Business class went to row 15 To then leave it empty"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "There was one flight attendant that was rude. The reat were very nice."
Pros: "They are the best airline flying to Boston."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."
Pros: "Seats just as small as US carriers, but in better shape, cleaner, less ratty overall. I also like that Swiss Air doesn't fuss with boarding everyone in 8 different classes. First class through one door and everyone else through the other, nice and easy."
Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."
Pros: "good stuff"
Cons: "HAving to walk across the Zurich airport to buy a business class upgrade was bad. I just wanted to buy the upgrade at the desk. No need to go from terminal 3 to terminal 1. total waste of 20-30 minutes. Ironic that this happens to people willing to spend $'s of dollars for convenience and comfort. should be able to purchase upgrade ASAP with a smile at check-in."
Pros: "Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother."
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Pros: "Food & beverage, onboard entertainment and beauty product in the bathroom was good."
Cons: "Service was okay and the seats were horribly uncomfortable. Not what I remember from Swiss when I use to fly constantly with them 2 years ago. Also, I was singled out by the crew at the gate and pulled aside. Racially profiling at its finest."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Cons: "They checked at the gate all our hand luggages to make sure we didnt exceed the 8 kilo mark. This is very cheap and only suitable for the low cost airlines. I expect swiss air as a higher class flight to turn a blind eye on this matter"
Cons: "I did not get a check in reminder email which I thought was strange. I tried checking in and received an error message. I contacted customer service by email and was told I was all checked in. Assuming no issues I went to airport to find out it was canceled. I did not receive an explanation. I waited in line for two hours before speaking to a representative. Was made to feel like it was my fault I hadn't worked things out while waiting in line-"didn't you receive an email!?" I was told no other options except to leave the next day. I pulled up many other flights out of Venice that would get me home in time and was told that there simply were no other options. The real explanation was that Swiss didn't want to pay out to get me home in time. I had to pay more money to get back into the city rather than sit in airport for 12 hours."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Room in economy"
Cons: "The lack of food choices. Even if you must buy them tgere should be choices"
Pros: "I got business class upgrade, so everything was pretty much awesome. Also, Swiss Air gives you a fun little bag as a souvenir."
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
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."
Cons: "Didn't have good selection of drink. Very tight seats never came by to pick up or ask if needed anything. Only saw them went serving dinner. I will never fly swiss air again."
Cons: "I had a tight connection in Zurich and a very lengthy trek to get to connecting flight. I wish Swiss Air had told me ahead of time that the flight would hold until I (and at least two other people) got there, instead of of having us run like crazy in an effort to make the flight. Connection time was way too tight."
Pros: "On time, organized."
Pros: "The crew and the food are amazing on Turkish airlines. The food is exceptional."
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, meals were excellent."
Cons: "More seating space but that won't happen."
Pros: "Crew was professional, food was good."
Cons: "The screen to manage in-flight entertainment was not very responsive and live tv was cutting out constantly"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Cons: "Excelu some hgtv program on screen no anything else"
Pros: "On the plus side, the food, service, entertainment, and comfort on Turkish are the best of any Economy class overseas flights. For that reason, they are my top pick."
Cons: "I can't understand why I was booked with an impossibly tight connection. It's a huge airport, with multiple security checkpoints with long lines. I had an hour between flights, and the first flight landed just five minutes late. The gate for the second flight had already closed by the time I cleared the first security checkpoint. It would have been completely impossible to make it to the gate on time. Turkish put me up in a hotel, etc., for the night, and there were dozens of people in similar situations. But the airline shouldn't offer connections that are totally impossible."
Pros: "Almost Everything"
Cons: "NOT THE AIRLINE'S FAULT - There was a 2 hours line for Passport check in Venice. Uncertainty about missing the flight."
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Cons: "they delayed the flight so i lost my checked in connection"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and food was amazing Thanks to chef and pilot. Everything was good If I get good price again I will definitely fly with Turkish all the time :)"
Cons: "The sounds of air was to much. I could hear the air outside and was bothering me."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "Pilot did a smooth landing both the long flights."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."

Pros: "Quick flight with breakfast"
Cons: "Boarding process was a little bit chaotic"

Pros: "The flight attendants are friendly and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "We went through an additional 6 security check points between our connecting flight from Italy, after they said we wouldn't. I understand the precautions flying into D.C., however there was no posting of this, and they wouldn't let us use the bathroom at the airport. Also, the plane was very hot with little air flow. Loud crying children coughing everywhere, fresh air would be nice for the 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food. The veg options were very bad."
Pros: "The stewardesses were cute"
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"
Pros: "Operativity, cleaning, food,"
Pros: "Excellent service, staff and food. All flights ran smooth, food and beverages were great and service from the crew was beyond great. During the fight, besides the food and drinks, we had lots of entertainment and games in the tv devices. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Turkish was the only airline I've flown that actually did not give the impression of nickle and diming but really made clear and concerted and well executed efforts to exceed expectations on all fronts. A huge accomplishment. They really put most of their competitors to shame."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and a pretty decent meal was served."
Cons: "The other passengers. :) Turkish was great, but the plane was only equipped with 90's in-seat entertainment."
Pros: "Even though this was a short flight, we were served a full meal! Crew made us very comfortable."
Cons: "We had a 5hr wait at the airport for our next flight. I wish we could have connected on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Pros: "Food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Seats were smaller on this plane. I'm 6-2" and this flight my knees hit the chair in front of me."
Pros: "Everything was the best! The food, the movies etc on board to choose from, the staff, everything was great. Turkish airlines is the best airline I've ever been on—US companies need to take note! Even on a 2:10 flight we got a full meal and many drinks."
Cons: "Nothing. They were perfect!"

Pros: "Plane was clean. Crew was nice. Good breakfast."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The seats were actually comfy in economy. My layover was cheery at the Istanbul Airport."
Cons: "You cant be worried too much about time...had a tight connection = detached from luggage. Fixed the next day."
Pros: "This was our first time with Turkish Airlines. I love that an inexpensive flight gave such wonderful service. My favorite thing is that they treat children well. We will definitely use again."
Pros: "Stewardesses were friendly flight and plane accommodation was great they fed us even gave us little things like a mask to sleep better and slippers for feet to make us comfortable and a blanket and a pillow to make us comfortable and the seats were comfortable and they fed us three times"
Cons: "It's a long flight but obviously there's nothing they can do about that"
Pros: "The in flight experience is what I expected and was comfortable."
Cons: "Th flight was extremely late and the airline did nothing to help accommodate. They put us into Istanbul at 2am which was far too late to check into our hotel for the one night and totally refused to get us into a hotel close by so that we didn't have to be at the airport for 13 hours before our flight. We booked a flight that was SUPPOSED to arrive at 6pm so we could get to the hotel at a decent hour and relax. They cancelled 2 flights for the day and put us sleeping in the airport at empty gates all night. The customer service was absolutely aweful and we got nothing but excuses about policy and being talked down to because we "could have chosen a flight early the next day" instead of coming the day before. We wanted to see the town for an evening!! This company has some of the worst desk people I've ever encountered anywhere!"
Pros: "Good entertainment, USB charging for phone"
Cons: "Bad seats, not very comfortable."
Pros: "Booking, price"
Cons: "A little easier site navigation- understanding"

Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
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: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!!"
Pros: "nice crew!"
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: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Cons: "Not there. Still in germany"
Pros: "Crew were very kind and hospitable. The aircraft was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was running late, but that was minor. Not an inconvenience for me."

Cons: "security held me up due to venice security not stamping my passport,,,i was finally able to find the original ticket due to free wifi in airport and get it straightened out though it would have been awful if i had not been early early"
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."
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: "Everything went as smoothly as possible. Would definitely recommend."
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."
Pros: "Nice service easy flight"
Cons: "Hot, ridiculously warm on the plane"
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: "Everything was excellent . I was very happy with this flight.Thank you so much."
Pros: "Good amount of leg space"
Cons: "Food should be much better than this. Otherwise everything is ok."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and particularly one of the girls was always giving her best"
Cons: "Staff is not friendly, does not offer assistance or ask if you need anything."
Cons: "Seat !!"
Pros: "Seat size was decent, not like us airlines, there’s actually space for you knees."
Pros: "good food, drinks, good entertainment options"
Cons: "They were delayed on every one of my flights - missed connecting flight and had to be booked on a new flight which got in a midnight. Terrible!!"
Pros: "Both the Lufthansa crew and the well thought out layout of Frankfurt International made it a lot more comfortable to travel."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I have been selected for additional screening at Vienna airport which was very time consuming and not very pleasant"
Pros: "Excellent flight Excellent food"
Pros: "continium of previous service provided"
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."
Pros: "Staff were always courteous."
Pros: "Timing flight people working very nice and hospitality"
Pros: "Crew was great. Comfortable in terms of airline travel. Entertainment selection was spectacular given the long flights and the fact I was with three kids. Really pleased!"
Cons: "Food was ok, not great."
Pros: "Movie selection, crew was very polite"
Cons: "Main meal was a little funky and boarding is always a hassle"

Cons: "Flyght was terible"
Cons: "Food is appauling!"
Cons: "flt was delayed 2 hours due to "employee meeting""
Pros: "too short to tell."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Flight was good and everything worked out perfectly."
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."
Pros: "flight was fast and we came into a gate instead of having to come into terminal by bus. Left on time an arrive early"
Cons: "nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. Food was ick- "chicken" tasted like a grade d boiled chicken nugget, terrible texture. Ladies on flight were kind, although not terribly helpful. Movie selection was pretty small and lots of Rated R movies, hard to find anything in the middle (not kids, but not adult)."
Pros: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "arrived early"
Pros: "Well, at least they didn't overbook it like the horror the connector to LAX was"
Cons: "Waited longer to start boarding the plane than the flight took. There are 2 gates in Lugano "airport" and no plane or flight at the other gate. Shouldn't be this difficult. The inflight crew was nice and attentive for the little time we saw them but the ground crew never ev n bothered to make an announcement. Just had us sitting there like a heard of cattle."
Cons: "Prior to take-off, we spent 2 hours after boarding on an incredibly hot plane with no working air conditioning"
Pros: "Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Rude gate agent. Small seats, no leg room, very crowded together. Clearly a budget airline - should be marketed as such."
Cons: "When I was boarding all representatives was very unfriendly and I would say they were rude."
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Pros: "After departing the cluster fk that is O'Hare airport it's such a pleasure to interact with Vienna and Austrian Air. I had 'only' an hour to make the connection, and yet all, that is all, formalities took no more than 10 minutes. I had plenty of time to spare. Waiting area at the gate had plenty of seating and the staff was professional and courteous. We had to gate check bags as the plane was a regional turboprop, but everything went very smoothly."
Pros: "Fastboarding, left on time. Cleaner aircraft, too small for carry on. Carry on promised at staircase, delivered at luggage claim."
Cons: "Too many customers use more than their fair share of the overhead space. A lot of passengers placed their luggage and their personal item above. This left those of use who use only our fair alottment searching for a place for what we fairly should be allowed to use."
Pros: "The 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: "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: "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: "Nice crew, lots of entertainment options (movies especially). Seats recline very far back, nice..."
Cons: "Ground crew was a big bottleneck and Austrian security did not help."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew attentive. The movie selection was excellent and the entertainment system was excellent. The food was typical for what you get on transatlantic flights in economy."
Cons: "At the gate the boarding processes was very slow because there was only a single person checking the passports and the boarding passes of all passengers. Surprisingly, this airline also could not provide a plastic bag for our checked in child seat, which is standard on other airlines."
Cons: "Been traveling with Auystrian for a while now and so far so good, I'm very satisfied"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, nice crew, efficient boarding, small airport (Varna)"
Cons: "The flight attentands were very unfriendly"
Pros: "Really enjoyed the quick and pleasant service from the crew."
Cons: "This was actually one of the better flights I have been on."
