There was no special meal on board even though I spent hours on hold to request one!
Pro: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Piloting was on time and precise."
Contra: "Space in economy seats is minimal and not comfortable for a 6' 190# guy like me."
Pro: "Flight was canceled. No crew... Alternative: Eurowings via Newark. And then United to Detroit. A totally wasted day..."
Contra: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Contra: "Nothing to add?"
Pro: "Thanks for the good care."
Contra: "Beta information for the flight"
Pro: "Great amount of legroom, snack given even though < 1hr flight"
Pro: "Nice touches like pillow and blanket, lots of movies and hot meals."
Contra: "My seat was very uncomfortable for such a long flight! It didn't recline and was cramped. Also I have terrible nut allergy and when I tried to communicate that to the flight staff the kept telling me to tell someone else."
Pro: "Amazing crew. Took care of people in every possible way and were concerned about their comfort. The food and drinks were above and beyond. Other airline CEO’s should fly Lufthansa and find out what they need to do to impress their customers. side pockets beneath the windows are great to have."
Contra: "The only thing I can say is the seating on a long flight needs a little more room. When the person in front lets their seat back it gets to be a little cramped."
Contra: "The only thing that was iffy were the movies Most were not recent But I did watch Bohemian Rhapsody Excellent"
Contra: "My 2 bags haven't arrived from Sunday 6 January till now (10 January) and all my winter clothes plus other important things are in it. I check every day with lufthansa call center but still no progress."
Pro: "Lot of space in E-xit-row 18, even for a big man like me"
Pro: "best take off and landing I’ve ever experienced. 2 meals for an 8 hour flight and all the red wine I could drink!"
Contra: "We were unable to fly this trip due to United cancelling our flight."
Pro: "Clean , newer plane"
Contra: "Most unengaged, bored crew. They were simply going through the motions. I had a seat mate who stood in the aisle over my head for over 3 hours. Each time anyone walked down the aisle-/including a crew member-/ she would bang my head, lean against me and even though I asked nicely that she sit down or go to the back since it was 3 am and I was trying to sleep, she wanted to stand near her husband in the row ahead of me. And the crew never said a word."
Pro: "Bag drop in Hamburg for flight to Frankfurt and then connecting to San Francisco was the quickest I have ever experienced. I think the check in app captures all the info needed so well that when you drop your bag, my passport was checked and that was it. Done in 3 minutes. Flight is only 80 minutes and drink and snack offered."
Contra: "No issues"
Contra: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
Pro: "Very friendly crew"
Pro: "Excellent cabin service with full drinks bar, nice choice of meals and good entertainment choices"
Contra: "Entertainment system reluctant or slow to respond to commands"
Pro: "Crew was excellent and many passengers were as well."
Pro: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."
Contra: "Nothing. Everything, as always, great. Keep it up."
Pro: "Nice big plane, good/frequent beverage service."
Contra: "Didn’t arrive on time. Breakfast was weird and flavorless."
Contra: "Very uncomfortable seats too close together. Boarding was late and plane was full. People had to out roller boards understand seats that were too close together. Seemed very unsafe. Stuffy and hot. Terrible turbulence."
Contra: "This flight was canceled. I’m late to my destination. I don’t travel often and this was a bad experience. I’m very disappointed. I’m not a complainer"
Pro: "Food, service"
Contra: "Reassigned seat due to equipment change resulted in seating in row 51 vs. reserved row 20"
Contra: "Leg room was less"
Contra: "I had picked my own isle seat at purchase of ticket. Some how i ended up sitting middle row."
Pro: "I always enjoy flights on Lufthansa. Very professional and nice crews."
Contra: "More movie options would be good."
Contra: "Kosher food ordered was not satisfactory: meat too dry and compressed. I couldn't eat that. Overall Kosher meal was poor quality. Disappointing."
Pro: "Timing was on schedule"
Contra: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"
Pro: "The customer service from the crew. The airplane, entertainment unit and options."
Contra: "Low quality food."
Pro: "Everything seemed to run smoothly."
Contra: "No issues this leg"
Pro: "The flight itself was fine, about what you'd expect from a short-duration flight on a major airline."
Contra: "I wished to change to an earlier flight with plenty of seats available. the Lufthansa ticket agent stated the only way, as I had booked a "light" fare, was to pay a full-price one-way economy ticket--plus luggage--for about 380 euros with no credit for my current ticket. After booking a day-room at a local hotel, I checked in on-line and discovered for 115 euros I could have upgraded to business class, with luggage included, and been accommodated on schedule changes. My suggestion to Lufthansa is if they intend to rip their customers off it's best NOT TO LET THEM FIND OUT ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE, or if they're simply too incompetent to match marketing offers to their booking department they could save considerable income and reputation by closing the ticket office. As it was, the impression was a low-class money grab. It's not like they can count on their partnership with United to make them look good."
Pro: "Standard Lufthansa short haul, Crew attentive"
Contra: "arrived off stand"
Pro: "Very professional, attentive, friendly flight attendants, clean aircraft (even the restrooms), surprisingly good food. I appreciate the complimentary wine, beer and after meal cordials. Boarding was quick, easy and on time."
Contra: "Economy seat room feels even smaller which, I guess, is to be expected. My husband is 6'2' and his knees touched the seat in front of him. When the person in front leans their seat back it is very claustrophobic. Over all an excellent flight though."
Pro: "Crew was nice Lots of movie choices but the headphone jack isn't compatible with regular personal headphones so you had to use theirs which were uncomfortable and poor sound quality"
Contra: "And they lost our luggage."
Contra: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Pro: "nice services."
Contra: "no order in boarding and no chairs in Panama airport. Had to stand for 2 hours before boarding."
Pro: "I love Lufthansa: flight attendants so attentive, Complimentary services that other airlines charge for. Attentive staff...and I flew economy."
Pro: "The flights itself was ok. The flight attendants caused me no problems, and the flights, when I FINALLY got on them, were smooth."
Contra: "everything else. The franfurt airport closure made me miss school because they did not offer extra flights to accommodate all the displaced travelers. I had to stay in the Frankfurt airport for a FULL EXTRA DAY, and every time I tried to get a new ticket, or ask anyone for help, I was given the run around. No one was helpful. I talked to about a dozen Lufthansa employees that day and only one was helpful at all. It was a hellish nightmare. Before my last flight, I was furious with how I had been treated all day and a horrible Lufthansa woman yelled at me for being upset about the situation. Then, when after much hassle I finally got to my destination, I was told my baggage was lost. That was on thursday and I still have not gotten it. i am never flying lufhansa again. This was the worst trip of my entire life."
Pro: "Overall the flight was ok"
Contra: "I was not a fan of the food but more important, the headset lack was broken. I had to pull the cable constantly to be able to hear something"
Pro: "Nice courageous service"
Contra: "I didn't find any dislike"
Pro: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Contra: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."
Contra: "Flight delayed 1.5hrs after landing in Denver."
Pro: "Priority boarding with small kids"
Contra: "In London I was required to ask fro this priority boarding with kids if not asked I would be queuing with small kids for 15 minutes.. (whilst In Frankfurt we have been invited to be boarded as first ones without asking for it.)"
Rude staff late departure uncomfortable seats no entertainment
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
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"
