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.
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
Pro: "Although economy, it was pleasant and okay"

Contra: "Friendlier approach from the crew"
Pro: "Everything about the United Airlines portion of the trip was terrific: lots of food & drinks; good entertainment system; good seats even in economy. United really stepped up their game."
Contra: "The seats on the Austria Airlines portion of the trip were very close together & very minimally structured (little padding, depth etc.)"
Contra: "Flight delayed for one hour which caused us to miss our train. We had the longest check-in queue in the world although we have already checked in online and had our boarding passes in advance. Snack on board was a poor piece of biscuits"
Contra: "Seat spacing is small, to the point that it's impossible to remain in the seat few hours without physical pain in your body"

Pro: "Plane, pilots and the leader of the crew"
Contra: "The flight attendant in the back needs to be more educated"
Pro: "Highly efficient transfer (45 minutes between flights)"
Contra: "too short a time to transfer between flights as a very long distance between gates,"
Contra: "We landed so close to our boarding time, by the time i got through everything, i was notified that i had to go to gate 11 for a special security check...it was stressful since my flight was boarding...i found it really frustrating . Ultimately the plane waited and it worked out, but the process was long and VERY stressful."
Pro: "Movie selection, crew was very polite"
Contra: "Main meal was a little funky and boarding is always a hassle"
Contra: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Contra: "it was canceled and i still waiting for refund so i did get ticket on vayama how i get email from kayak"
Contra: "The business class was not really business class, I guess a 3 hour Business Class flight doesn’t have a seating configuration t Like the new A321. With all said Austrian Air is on the top of its field,"
Contra: "Firstly . The crew were rude ! They did not even response when were calling them from the seat . The only way to talk to them is to find them at the end of the plane ( where they been chating with each other ) Secondly . The amount of snacks was limited where’s in Turkish airlines it’s unlimited and you can choose different sandwiches whereas in Austrian airilines can offer biscuits and Cookies ;( Thirdly . We are living in 21 century and most transatlantic airlines have WiFi ! Where’s Austrian did not have it!"
Pro: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"

Contra: "Flight attendants were a bit stoic but did their job."
Pro: "The plane crew was really nice always there for my needs."
Contra: "The seats were uncortable my chair was very wobbly."
Contra: "I specifically selected three seats for my Wife and two children ages 7 and 5. I did not fly back with them and at check in the three seats were confirmed on a boarding pass printed at their departure location. Upon checking in on the connecting flight in Vienna, the seat assignment had been completely disregarded and three seats located 10+ aisles apart were given to a family traveling together??????? This makes no sense and must be due to booking through a third party. Unacceptable and not worth the $40 per ticket savings."
Contra: "no entertainment at all Chairs are not comfortable at all no cushions to ease the back pains"
Contra: "Behavior of AA. We came with AA from Nica to Wien on time and AA did not allowed us to take plane to Zagreb. They changed to latter fly with CA. Shameful and inadmissible !"
Pro: "Amazing crew, very good food and coffee. Extremely happy with the Austrian Airlines. From now on I will try to fly mainly with this company. Thank you to all crew members of flight 087 from Vienna to New York on Sunday, 29 May 2017."
Pro: "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."
Pro: "Compared to most American crews the Aus crew was helpful and outstanding."
Contra: "The chicken dinner was not that great and the breakfast was only a muffin, I expected more. On Turkish airlines flight from Ord to Istanbul we got a full breakfast tray."
Contra: "It took us 2 tries to get there due to weather and they had us waiting in the airport for 12 hours in the middle of the night. We first flew to Lviv and then they turned the plane around and came back as we were landing. I appreciate that they did this for safety reasons. When we got back however at 2:30am, they did not provide us with a hotel and just gave us blankets and pillows to sleep in the airport. They also offered us only a piece of bread with ham and cheese and a coffee for the next 12 hours until the new flight left. Not a pleasant experience."
Pro: "Austrian airlines did not have enough passingers and they transfer my father who is very sick and old to turkish airline."
Contra: "Unprofessional very, very!"
Pro: "I was pleased by the comfort of the seats, the staff on board and the flight itself. The flight actually did not seem at all like 9 hours. And it arrived exactly on time."
Contra: "The crew at the airport before boarding was a little impolite. As people were getting ready to board and waiting in the line, they were told to go back to customer service to register passports and get new boarding passes, without prior announcement. That could have been avoided if they informed us."
Contra: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"
Contra: "My luggage was lost again It is the second time in a row that happens"
Pro: "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."
Contra: "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."
Pro: "Baggage in Riga was available the moment we got to the carousel."
Contra: "Passport control in Vienna was completely disorganized. This is not an Austrian Air issue. Look to Disney World for how to line up large groups of people. Yes, I know Air Baltic is low fare. I have never paid for water on a flight. At least the WC was included in the fare."
Pro: "The service was fine, although I suggest that Austrian Airlines will consult with someone who joj is to train the staff to be more efficient."
Contra: "The food was bad."
Pro: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."
Pro: "the crew"
Contra: "There was no space. Even though I wore compression socks and got up to walk frequently, my legs were bruised as I could not stretch out for any extended time. The seats are cramped and you are in one position. The flight was almost 9 hours and it was too much for me."
Pro: "The meal and drink service was quite good. The stewards/stewardesses were very attentive and kind."
Contra: "There is not enough leg room. There is even less room if the person in front of one's seat has the seat reclined. The seats barely recline at all, so sleep is impossible. Sleep would be possible if there were enough room to rest one's head on the tray in front of the seat. This is impossible if the person in front of one's seat has reclined his or her seat. Thus, sleep is totally impossible on this aircraft. The sinks in the bathrooms also need to be deeper and need to drain more quickly."
Pro: "Quick boarding, friendly staff"
Contra: "Flight was delayed"
Contra: "small and cramped airplane"
Pro: "Nice flight..friendly staff, tasty food, and on time arrivals."
Contra: "I did not like vendors at the Vienna airport charging me 2 dollars U.S. for 1 Euro. When checking the exchange rates the next day it was $1.15 per Euro.. I feel taken advantage of paying $44.00 U.S. for a snack that was 22 Euros. It happened again with another vendor there..$6.00 for a 3 Euro small bottle of water."
