Terrible seats terrible food terrible everything
Contra: "It was full, Ben if Lufthansa said on their website that they keep physical distance for passangers! Liars!"
Pro: "Lufthansa is a great airline."

Pro: "Quick and easy flight decent cold sandwiches."
Pro: "Lot of space in E-xit-row 18, even for a big man like me"
Pro: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Contra: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Contra: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Contra: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"
Pro: "The flight crew was amazing and the overall experience was great."
Pro: "The food was pretty decent."
Contra: "The seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. The plane was old. No entertainment. For the money look elsewhere."
Pro: "Cabin was clean"
Contra: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."
Pro: "Excellent crew, provided beverages constantly, meals were very good for airplane food, seats were comfortable for most of the 9.5 hours. Entertainment selections were more than adequate. Even the babies were quiet !!!"
Contra: "TV screens did not function consistently, had to be reset a couple of times. Plane was late boarding (but made up most of the time). Had to go through security a second time even though it was a connecting flight. Luggage got crushed in a carousel pile-up and took a long time to come out."
Pro: "Staff were very friendly."
Pro: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Contra: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."

Contra: "Food use to be better"
Pro: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."
Pro: "Food was good. We were served well and often"
Contra: "Bumpy ride. Design of aircraft had all the restrooms clustered in the same spot leading to long queues forming. Headsets were of poor quality, couldn't hear the movie dialogue well at all."
Pro: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew."
Pro: "Very nice personals, I'm so happy."
Contra: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."
Contra: "Didn't happen yet."
Pro: "N-o entertainment"
Pro: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."
Pro: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Contra: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Contra: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Contra: "There is no entertainment so I do not know it should be rates."
Pro: "Very friendly crew, smooth flight ( great pilots)"
Contra: "Food was carb heavy. I wish you would offer more protein and vegetable choices."
Pro: "United airlines a319 was quite shakey felt uncomfortable whereas the Lufthansa connection with the a320 was way better only a bit shakey but felt comfortable and enjoyed the flight."
Contra: "United airlines connection was quite bad. Was 15 min late but didn't really mind it"
Pro: "Everything was good."
Pro: "Crew was good"
Contra: "Seating arrangement and lack of comfort :( Was impossible to get a seat assignment. Will not fly Lufthansa again."
Pro: "I fleweconomy. Flight on time. Boarding was quick. Food is so so bordering to poor. On the plus side the portion was small and is good when want to go on diet."
Pro: "The plane was parked away from the gate. We boarded the service bus to get there 20 minutes before departure time. But it took more than 20 minutes while mid way waiting for clearance to leave for the plane. The service bus did not turn on the AC while we waited even though we complained. We were suffocating. There was no entertainment on the plane."
Pro: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"
Contra: "Plane was"
Pro: "I am trying to figure out the difference between Premium Economy and Economy. Looks like the seats are a bit wider, but the meals are just about the same. We waited 45 minutes a Newark for a Gate, but that is not the fault of the airline or the crew"
Pro: "flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services."
Contra: "The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen."
Pro: "The crew was friendlier. the plane was way cleaner than the previous one. The food was more decent."
Contra: "The crew wasn't too willing to help with the carry-on baggage, for example - I kept looking for a while for an available spot to deposit mine."
Pro: "if i had booked that flight the overall experience would have been great. on time, good service, comfortable seats, good food and great entertainment."
Contra: "i booked a different flight, so we ended up adding significant travel time and cost to this trip which made the overall experience somewhat frustrating. — airlines also need to get better at keeping families seated close to each other if the kids are small. it adds to the overall travel anxiety and gets everyone in a bad mood."
Pro: "Such a nice plane. So clean and new and professional staff."
Contra: "Boarding a little disorganized. But it was the airports fault I think."
Barely let my wife and 2 children in. The check in lady said you have to arrive 4-5 hours before flight depature and almost did not let them fly. Thankfully another attendant helped out.
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
This was a code share operated by United with a 787. Don't care for the herringbone 2-2-2 seating in business, many other carriers have gone to a 1-2-1 which is better. Food wasn't much better than economy but what really counts is lie flat seats.
Pro: "Friendly crew"
Contra: "We were delayed about 40 minutes due to air traffic. It appears they knew that, and we could have waited in the air conditioned terminal, rather than on the plane. And, I could have informed my Niece I would be arriving late, but I had no Wifi."
Pro: "Professional crew"
Contra: "Depart on time"
Contra: "The service with an awful crew !!! Just plain spiteful and arogant even if we flew in Business class"
Pro: "The cleanest of the airport and the airplane"
Contra: "The 15 hours layover"
Pro: "They DID NOT let me aboard the airline!!! Austerian airline is the worst EVER, because they are not even helping me to get a credit to fly Monday to Israel. The of ticket counter at ORD were treating me as a dirt. And unwelcome. I was trying to reason with them, they did NOT want to help."
Contra: "It would have been better if back to back with priceline helped me out to get to another flight & they won’t even credit my ticket, so I LOST about $1200 & was excited for my vacation. They were unhelpful & they kept putting me untold & hanging up on me with their ticket agency on phone too."
Pro: "Space, happy vibes, clean"
Contra: "Nothing it was super"
Contra: "My flight was canceled and I received no communication from Austrian Airlines. There was no staff at ticketing counter. The contact number that O’Hare had was a disconnected Verizon number, which was the same number listed on their website. I had to call the international number where I was told I was rebooked on United with 2 layovers instead of one. I also lost my business class upgrade and was told there was nothing they could do about it."
Pro: "Nothing at all."
Contra: "Couldn’t get on the flight due to two cancellations of prior connecting flights. Utterly, totally unacceptable - and no explanation of why."
Pro: "Flight on time, and luggage was at destination. Crew OK"
Contra: "Food disappointing, dry, and tasteless, my dinner was missing half of what my husband had. Was not worth the effort to complain. Seats left you in pain, no lower back support, and very hard seats."
Pro: "The attendants on Austrian air are all very nice and helpful. You can make any request of them or ask any question and they are happy to help. Great customer service. Arrived on time. Also, very good entertainment options!"
Contra: "The seats are very uncomfortable on Austrian air. The only way I would fly them again would be if I had extra money for the exit rows with more leg room. Food isn't great, but no airline food is really great. Boarding was significantly delayed from what it said on the boarding pass, with no updates. But we arrived on time. Getting luggage after flight at Dulles took a really long time, but I think that is more of an airport issue as getting my luggage from another Austrian airlines flight to another airport was a breeze."
Pro: "Everything Fromt the crew and service. To checking in and deplaning was awesome"
Pro: "It was a total nightmare all Austrian flights they put us on were canceled !!! We did not leave Vienna for another 7 h a total nightmare all planes had technically difuculties !! Austrian airlines had total chaos !!!"
Pro: "Movie selection was good."
Contra: "I could not reserve seats via Kayak, through whom the flight was booked. I paid extra for seat reservations, about $30 for a plain economy seats, to Austrian Airlines."
Pro: "The flight was short: 4 hours. It was in time, etc. Certainly no entertainment."
Contra: "After the breakfast (rather poor) no drink was suggested. There was a cup for tee or coffee. Empty one. After the breakfast they just took it away with other dirty dishes. It happened to all passengers in my neighborhood."
Contra: "Can’t like it if you missed it!!"
Pro: "Love the A 380-800"
Contra: "Out luggage did not make it to Houston from Frankfurt. We were late from Vienna but Lufthansa held the plane and extra 30 minutes in Frankfurt so that the baggage could make it from the feeder flights and it still didn't. We were promissed out luggage on Sunday evening. No one called and as of Monday morning no news."
Pro: "new plane, half empty, good and friendly service"
Pro: "Friendly staff, on time flight. Nice refreshments"
Contra: "Sweet or saulty 'Snack' is a joke"
Contra: "They cancel the flight without letting me know!"
Pro: "The outbound flight from Vienna to IAD had much better service. The return flight from IAD to Vienna, the crew didn't come back to refill water or ask to top up drinks. The food choices were more limited. The entertainment system on the flight needs a larger selection."
Pro: "Smooth strait flight, friendly polite crew"
Pro: "Everything was going to at"
Pro: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Contra: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."
Pro: "Seats, crew, nice plane"
Contra: "Delayed flight. Random boarding,"
Pro: "Crew friendliness."
Contra: "Initial flight was late taking off for no reason except they scheduled too many incoming flights. Made my second flight but my bag did not and had to wait over a day for it while missing a day of work."
Pro: "The Crew was perfekt The Wheelchaire Service was also perfekt Food tasted good"
Contra: "The only trouble was 1:15 h delay ,but this depended on the weathersituation how I believe!"
Pro: "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."
Pro: "Boarding was efficient and quick"
Contra: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Pro: "in this case, nothing"
Contra: "1.15h delay - sitting in full air craft without aircondition cold, not profi behavior no please, no sorry, no "what would you like..." none nice word"
Pro: "bording, take off, landing were on time excellent service on board crew was professional, present, smiling, creating feeling of comfort would definitely fly again with Austrian and recommend the airline to my friends and family"
Contra: "On my way to Bulgaria, I flew to Varna and would have liked to have a return flight from Varna, that makes the connection for Chicago"
Pro: "The overall flight wads excellent."
Contra: "Boarding on the return flight was poorly handled as there was no organized boarding."
Contra: "I luked the atmosphire and the silence ."
Pro: "Crew and boarding were fine. But nothing to crow about. Just not stressful."
Contra: "That was the most uncomfortable flight I have had. It was hard fora short flight, though sitting so close to another passenger, side and front was stressful. Plus, my back was killing me by the end of the short flight- and the long flight from Europe to the US was hard. It was pretty much knocking elbows with the passenger next to me when eating. And mind you- no passenger in my row as any larger than the average person. The seat recline was fine and marginally helpful in relieving back strain- except it did put you in the lap of the passenger behind you. The passenger across the aisle from me shoved the seat in front of her and told the passenger in front of her he could NOT recline. The passenger next to her (I assume her husband) joined in with the shoving. I finally felt a need to intervene and calm them down as it began to escalate- and I did want the flight to continue. Note- while I think the passengers shoving the seat were a bit rude- the crowded nature of the seating with the recline was hard, so I understand. But the person in front had a reason (and a NEED given the discomfort) to lean his seat back. The seats were simply too uncomfortable to keep them upright. I helped them find a recline for both passengers that was reasonably okay. I also tried to get my recline somewhere between comfortable for me (impossible) and reasonable in space for the person behind me, This is an airline problem. And when people wonder about the rise in passenger rage... this cramming in is it. I had to use Austrian because of a last minute need to book a flight- given the inability to relax even a little and the residual back and leg pain ... thus my ability to immediately jump into work during a busy work and travel schedule means that I will definitely not take this airline again. If you are shorter than 5' 5 and weigh about 100 lbs- this might be okay. Otherwise, expect to be a lot of rats shoved in a cage."
Pro: "Good service"
Contra: "Instant coffee"
Pro: "Fast and short flight between Vienna and Warsaw. Not much good or bad."
Contra: "Shuttle bus from the terminal took awhile to leave to the plane. No air conditioning to the shuttle. Very hot. Was uncomfortable."
Contra: "They could not issue boarding pass for the all the segments of the travel. The agent had to talk to someone in order to even issue the boarding pass and even though the bags were checked in all the way to Pittsburgh boarding passes were not issued. I cannot blame the agent because Luftansa had issued the ticket for this Austrian Airline flight."
Pro: "Everything seemed all right"
Pro: "On time, friendly staff"
Pro: "We left late but efficiently."
Contra: "Flight from Dulles to Vienna was cancelled in the morning on the day of departure. We contacted Austrian and rebooked with Air France. The Air France flights were good overall. The food was okay, entertainment excellent, comfort good, boarding good, crew okay. On flight to Paris, the crew did not serve water during the period between dinner and the service before landing."
Contra: "The Air France flight was good overall. The food was okay, comfort good, boarding good, crew excellent."
Pro: "Wonderful experience"
