The web site ; The wait time to reach agents by phone; The music choice for the wait; And the iPhone AUSTRIAN app Are all a disgrace!
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
Pro: "Friendly and helpful crew, smooth transfer between flights, comfortable adjustable headrest, easy to request special meal online before flight."
Contra: "Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't of great importance anyway."
Pro: "Stewards dis perfect job"
Pro: "Although economy, it was pleasant and okay"
Contra: "I bought a business ticket but flew in economy from Tel Aviv to Vienna. I knew about it but the ticket cost was still high."
Contra: "To arrive on time"
Pro: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Pro: "Good amount of leg space"
Pro: "Crew allowed me to change seats to get two empty seats by the window that were available."
Pro: "The plane was comparatively clean"
Contra: "Staff need to be a little more genuine with their simles or just don’t give obvious fake ones."
Pro: "The flight attendants were quite personable and engaged."
Pro: "The crew was super friendly, food was great and entertainment on board was a great selection."
Contra: "Was very warm on the plane as certain times and even at the terminal, which we could control the fan blowing on us."
Pro: "Friendly crew with a wide range of entertainment options"
Contra: "Smoother boarding. Was great once on board."
Pro: "None of them above I'm not happy at all"
Pro: "They were really good with checking in my excess baggage and my two cats. Cats travelled well and arrived as expected. Check in at O'Hare was very friendly. In the air, flight attendants were very accommodating and friendly. All luggage and cats arrived! The plane from O'Hare to Austria was very nice!"
Contra: "I think I have gotten used to Asiana's and Korean Airlines'. It just didn't seem to measure up to their business class service. The food (which has been highly rated!) I found to be just mediocre. Maybe it's because I was living in Asia for eight years and had become more accustom to asian cuisine?? I didn't love the seat either. When you recline, your feet are cramped inside a small area under the seat in front of you. It was cramped. The ability to customize the seat recline was limited. I like being able to move the head and feet into my own customized position. The business class seats from Vienna to Amman felt like coach."
Pro: "Everything Fromt the crew and service. To checking in and deplaning was awesome"
Pro: "The Swiss Air staff provided water and nice sandwiches for us while we stood in line for hours and put us up in a very nice hotel for the night."
Contra: "My first flight with Austrain Airlines was 2 hours late in leaving, partly because they mixed our baggage up and had to have each of us leave the airplane to identify our baggage before getting back on again. Because of this, I missed my connecting flight in Zurich. Apparently hundreds of other passengers were in a similar situation, because I spent the next 6.5 hours standing in line to getting my new itinerary and hotel vouchers."
Contra: "The flight had delay more than 45 minutes I lost my bus connection"
Contra: "more than one hour delay, crew didn't arrange anything for passengers who had to catch a connecting flight in a short time. And according to other passengers, Austrian's flights are always late for at least 30-45 minutes since recent years."
Pro: "Great staff, good meals, snacks, and drinks thru the entire flight. Good movie selections."
Contra: "I didn't like that I paid for a ticket months ago and checked in my bags and then was told that there's no room the plain is full"
Contra: "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."
Pro: "Smooth flight, friendly and afficient onboard service. Fast boarding. On time departure."
Contra: "Croatian Airline checkin service was good but was made to check in carry on. However, baggage clerk was extremely hostile and wanted to charge us for two bags for which we had prepaid. Would not accept our evidence of payment for the two bags. Finally accepted her mistake but Forced to pay 90€ For the extra bag. Ripoff!! Other airlines (Vueling, Air Europa) checked same bag as courtely, did not charge. First and last time flying Austrian."
Pro: "Smooth ride, good breakfast and charming flight attendant."
Pro: "Austrian Airlines does it right— service, food, cleanliness. This was a really terrific experience. They even boarded efficiently, having those with seats in the back board first."
Contra: "This was a great flying experience."
Pro: "Flight attendants were extremely friendly and considerate of passenger needs. In flight Wi-Fi is free in economy. Good leg space between the rows. Overall it's rare to find such good service now a days."
Pro: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Contra: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"
Pro: "too short to tell."
Contra: "Not applicable"
Pro: "The air crew service"
Contra: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Pro: "There was no in-flight entertainment system so I rejoiced to discover there was in-flight WiFi."
Contra: "But Wifi did not offer much, just some summary descriptions on the destination. I'd be enchanted to get via WiFi the well-known in-flight map showing which leg of your flight was accomplished."
Pro: "It's just normal seats with the middle seat blocked for Business class. It's not a true Business class seat by any definition. There is no entertainment system for this flight. I would choose to fly economy for this leg, if given the option as there is no added value to the Business class."
Pro: "After flight to Vienna was cancelled, we were put on a flight to Frankfurt instead."
Contra: "Kayak sent me an email at 5:16am for an 8:15 am flight titled, "Austrian Airlines flight #704 from PRG on time". It was in fact cancelled. Unfortunately we missed the connection for the flight to Newark, which we were expressly told would be held for us... they shut the door 30 seconds before we arrived, with the plane still at the gate. Had to then go to the only counter in the terminal to see if we could get on standby. Finally got on a flight to JFK instead at 5:15pm."
Pro: "Wonderful flight attendant. (I think his name was Stephen?)"
Contra: "Plane took off and landed late.. Few amenities near the gate. Odd procedure to have everyone go through security into waiting area."
Pro: "The crew was very very nice and flight was very quick."
Contra: "No entertainment at all, music nor tv :/"
Pro: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Contra: "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)."
Pro: "Boarding time and arrival were both on time. Service is courteous, and the lounge very pleasant."
Contra: "LOST BAGGAGE !!!!!!!"
Pro: "Love the coordination"
Contra: "My flight was cancelled! ended up flying to Athens the next day"
Contra: "seats too cramped"
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: "The food was very good! And the movies you could choose too."
Pro: "The hostess are very friendly, good customer knowledge with worm smiles. My name is mulugeta Assefa"
Contra: "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"
Pro: ".The crew was pleasant"
Contra: "The flight attendants did a satisfactory job of distributing meals and snacks only if you were awake during their service round. I was resting on one occasion and missed the snack. I was total ignored when I asked for a serving. The boarding process was disorganized and the flight was delayed about an hour. Seat way too small for transatlantic. I weight 62kg and was sitting in a middle seat. Next time I'll have to get an upgrade."
Pro: "Flying on a direct flight was nice. The food was good. Ordinarily the snack lunch is not good but the sandwich was quite good."
Contra: "The boarding is best if done by rows but this was just every one trying to board at the same time so it has a more negative effect on passengers."
Pro: "The flight was on time, and the attendents on Austrian engaging and charming crew"
Contra: "nothing in particular"
Pro: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Pro: "Check in and gate agents in TLV were top shelf pros, fast, friendly and to the point with a smile. Crew on board followed through as well."
Contra: "Food was crappy and there was no entertainment on board at all. Also, crowded seating."
You asked about food and entertainment, but there was none. The seats were uncomfortable.
Daca tot se schimba avionul, ar trebui sa se tina cont si de faptul ca DACA AI PLATIT LOC EXTRASPACE TREBUIE SA BENFICIEZI DE EL! Am avut platit loc extra space care s-a transformat într-un loc normal. De toata jjena!
announcements in english. 5 hour delay, asked twice (and so did other passengers), but no updates in any other language.
Contra: "could not be delayed"
Contra: "I missed my flight because my previous flight was delayed 2.5 hrs"
Pro: "To be going home!"
Contra: "Female crew taking orders then taking ages to ring drinks a d they move on to others instead of finishing what they were doing. Then you're lucky if you get given 1 sugar and no spoon lol."
Pro: "Food was excellent; boarding a litlle bit crowded, but didn't notice as had been busy; crew has been kind and helpful"
Contra: "Unconfortable chair seats; seatbelt too short; tables too low for tall ppl"
Pro: "The flight departed on time and arrived the same. The seat was a tad bit narrow for me but then I am a tall guy at 6'5". Crew was very professional. Ticket cost was a third of what the other airlines were offering for a Sunday fare. I'll definitely use BlueAir again!"
Contra: "I was not allowed to take the push chair on board even though on the inbound flight was ok to do so. I have purchased the push chair especially so I can take it on board. Disappointed."
Pro: "The crew was well trained, kind and receptive. The pilot managed to drive through a storm and even arrive 10 minutes faster after leaving 5 minutes late."
Contra: "Passengers traveling with pets took our reserved seats. The places for our baggages were occupied. When addressing this issue, we were told to move further ahead to empty seats. There was no meal included, and the one we purchased could not be paid by POS."
Pro: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Contra: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Pro: "Boarding was quick and we arrived on time."
Contra: "When getting to Bucharest we were taken by bus and didn’t have a gate."
Pro: "Everything was quite fast, we were like 15 min before the plan ready with boarding, but then somebody needed medical assistabce and we left 15 min delayed. But that's ok, it's nobody's fault. Baggage arrived very fast in Hamburg."
Contra: "A minus for the Crew because when we arrived in Hamburg, people started to open the baggage boxes although we were still rolling (like 5 min too early) and they didn't say anything, so more people were following. When we arrived, almost all the people who could, had the baggage already with them. This happened in the past but the Crew stopped the people on time."
Pro: "What to like? The rudness? The delays? Or the fights on board!!!"
Contra: "The flight was delayed with nearly 2 hrs. Cabin crew were rude made as feel very uncomfortable. This flight as whoke was the worst one I have even been too. Never ever again. BLUE AIR NEEDS TO SORT ALOT OF THINGS BEFORE OFFER SUCH SERVICES"
Contra: "I was unable to check n online (although the process was intitated well earlier than 12 hours prior to departure). The system charged y credit card for a seat reservation and then crashed with an error, both on my phone and laptop browser. When I called at 9:00 am (when their offices are open) to ask for help with what happened, I received no answer other than, "the check in system has just closed. I am unable to help you in any way". I booked another flight with another carrier, and did not take this flight., not do I plan to book with them in the future That being said, it is not the job of the employee to defend a poorly working system. Services need upgrade asap."
Contra: "flight delayed by more than 1 hour"
Contra: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Pro: "Boarding was good, flight and crew were good, had refreshments and food which came as a surprise. Overall I had a very good flight."
Contra: "I liked everything"
Pro: "Clean enough"
Contra: "Charged £60 for hold luggage because the airline’s unstable website wouldn’t allow me to book in advance (£20 extra in the airport). Plane was delayed because they were late allowing passengers to board and missed the runway slot. Seats were uncomfortable - it was an older airframe."
Pro: "They are more professional and helpful. Really seemed like they knew what they were doing. The flight crew was accommodating and polite. The plane was very comfortable"
Contra: "The plane seemed very old, toilet in poor condition."
Pro: "Flight was delay by 1 hour consequently my luggage did Ot arrive with me to Katowice on top of that there is no more flights today from waw to kat with lot Airline"
Contra: "Serive to pay extra luggage very very slow"
Contra: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."
Contra: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."
Pro: "company gave out free drinks and snacks"
Contra: "They change the fly departing time with 12 hours before I was flying"
Pro: "Easy to book on phone no problems getting boarding passes etc."
Contra: "Could not amend my booking tried to check a bag online after printing out boarding pass. Had to pay £46 for a 11k bag each way."
Pro: "On time ,clean aircraft..."
Contra: "Crew was very serious...a smile can make a difference....."
Contra: "Flight was cancelled a week before and didn't get a replacement flight. Got half of my money back. Will never book a blue air flight again !"
Pro: "Flight on time . Attentive crew . Good price ."
Contra: "Lack of leg room ."
Contra: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line. You enter all your details press confirm and it is supposed to go to the next instruction, but a message appeared then took you back to your previous page and you had to input all your details again..this happened many times before I eventually gave up."
Pro: "Arrived early to destination"
Contra: "Lack of entertainment also limited drinks"
Contra: "Rude crew, not organised work , not enough space for legs"
Contra: "I had to make my own way home from Manchester.. plane diverted due weather."
Pro: "The food they offer to purchase. Easy check in at the airport."
Contra: "Better seat pitch. I'm not a tall man, but the space is very small."
Pro: "Leg room and reclining"
Pro: "On time , crew good... no complaints"
Pro: "free breakfast great staff"
Pro: "Free drinks, cheap flight and fairly comfortable!"
Contra: "No allocated seat."
Pro: "Cheap in price, unexpected free snack on outbound flight, relaxed attitude to luggage, both hold and carry on, chartered unscheduled flight after original was cancelled"
Contra: "The fact our original flight was cancelled and we were delayed by 7.5 hours. They communication from the airport crew was little to non and flight time changed 4 times. They even told us difinitively that we would board at a certain time only for us to actually board nearly 2 hours later. They, without a doubt, knew the rescheduled flight time but strung us on anyway - I believe this was so they could save money on hotels"
Pro: "staff very friendly and polite ..airplane wasnt full so i get the chance to have a nice fly with my 2 little sons"
Pro: "Everything was awesome!!! I am going to buy only from you my next flights."
Contra: "The agent lady on the desk did nothing to help us get on our flight. She refused to identify herself. We intend to sue the company for the damages caused to us because of this bad attitude."
Pro: "Reliable and friendly staff. Even offered a free soft drink and sandwich on a short haul flight."
Contra: "Space to sit, especially when seated in the middle"
Contra: "No online check-in. 1 hour waiting for nothing."
Pro: "Staff on board was friendly"
Contra: "Planes were late Issue with on-line check-in Non responsive contact center at high cost per minute Absolutely inadequate space for knees, am 1.93 and my knees were stuck all the way during the flight although I had upgraded to a seat with better space. Old aircraft"
