Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Landing was smooth"
Pros: "King Hamad Airport is more comfortable and convenient than its Dubai equivalent. Staff were courteous."
Cons: "Dreamliner has very narrow chairs. I was uncomfortable in both directions. The toilets also seem to leak or splash water on the floor. Not a nice airplane."
Pros: "Planes very modern and spacious. 777-300 ER great in economy . Im 184cms tall and was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was repetitive / we flew two legs / Sydney to Doha and Doha to Madrid - same breakfast - chicken sausage. Movie selection - whilst large / hit and miss"
Cons: "take off and the landing was very bad food is very bad i booked my seat a week earlier and they changed for me they were very mean and i told them my son needs better seat"
Pros: "Good service. Good food."
Cons: "I was travelling with two kids, one of them an infant, in a more than 16hr long flight and I was not given a seat with basinet. Not only did I not get a basinet (which I had requested at the time of booking my flight and did get in the shorter leg of the flight) I was given seating in the very last row. The set assigned to my child had its base loose and the crew requested me to seat him at some other place temporarily because if he is not seated they will not be able to take off. The lavatory in the other section of the plane was broken and all the passengers were crowding at the one near our seats."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full...which is NOT the usual experience, and it is NOT something any airline could plan, or would want to, obviously! But it made all the difference in the world, to have room to stretch out and sleep on extra seats, place extra items (books, clothing, pastimes etc) nearby and not feel like a freak to get a stowed carry-on down from the rack. The graphics technology, especially the range of choices and the convenience of the screen, were unparalleled. The crew was top notch."
Cons: "This is really goofy...pie-in-the-sky dreaming for the "Dreamliner". If there were somewhere to place an exercise device, like a compact treadmill or even a step-up item with video instructor, it would be the icing on the cake. Also, it seemed as if the crew was a little stingy with the water, for some reason. It's hard for the air not to be super-dry, so it's really important to have plenty of water on hand. Maybe there's a protocol for when the plane is fully loaded...when the lavatory facilties' use would be strained. That was not the case here."
Pros: "Short trip very comfortable"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Apparently I noticed not the first time, the flight from US to Doha is excellent. In service and in assisting us with needs that are required for such a long journey. The flight from Doha to Thiruvananthapuram is quite the opposite. I asked for a blanket and it never arrived. The hostess seem rude and in a hurry. I think there is a significant difference in the quality of service when the flight hits Doha."
"Boarding in Lahore is slow"
Pros: "They cancelled the flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive."
Cons: "I was disappointed that the middle seats were booked too. I was expecting the middle seats will be kept empty for social distancing purposes."
Pros: "Yeah everything was good flight timing was very accurate I loved their service"
Cons: "Hotel or a waiting area should be arranged in case of flight delay"
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Pros: "Yes, Crew was amazing and timing was perfect."
Cons: "Excellent performance"
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Cons: "My baggage got missing"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."
Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Except for the dessert which was good."
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."
Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Cons: "see my words above. it is bad tryout with your site. there no responsibility. i am very upset about your negligence of your clients."
Pros: "In time me ,food ,clean"
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"
Cons: "going with RJ in the first leg"
Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Checking in was very lengthy and boring. More check in counters could ease the situation."
Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."
Pros: "Service great and on time"
Cons: "Lounge in Cape Town was bad."
Pros: "Great food etc"
Pros: "its a five stars trip in its services"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "Food was good. Service was great. Bathrooms were clean. Refreshing experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "Crew attention and care"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Upgrade to 1st Class. Very grateful for the experience. Outstanding service. Very professional crew. Awesome recliner seats. What's not to like about premium service?"
Cons: "Too short leg :( This upgrade would have been awesome for the longer leg of the trip (for a much needed decent sleep)."
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "My first flight to DOHA was cancelled"
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Courteous crew members Nice food tray containers"
Cons: "Portions were a little too small for me"
Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Aeroplane clean"
Cons: "Lack of space, I sat against the fuselage and moving around is very difficult. Taking my bag from under the seat is nearly impossible."
Pros: "Good food friendly staff"
Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Whether coach, business or 1st class, Emirates creates their passengers with respect and thanks in all they do. A 13 hour flight is no short haul and the Emirates staff kept a positive aire throughout the flight. The meals were very good, the service as well. The facilities were kept clean and accessible. Thank you Emirates...you made my trip a pleasure both to and from Dubai."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Pros: "Need a little more leg room. Staff made sure the toilets were clean."
Cons: "No footrest."
Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."
Pros: "Loved the leg room, very friendly staff, the cabin was a nice temperature."
Cons: "Based on this flight alone, I have no complaints. Looking forward to flying with Emirates again."
Cons: "Seats are less spacious for me since I’m 6 feet tall"
Cons: "Being late and have 24 layover at Dubai . Am still at dubai"
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
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: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Tiny seats. No leg room. No storage under the seats."
Pros: "Emirates is a great airline. Planes very comfortable."
Cons: "Our trip coincided with Eid. It's probably as busy a travel period as Thanksgiving. There were maybe 40 or 50 small kids on the plane, with concomitant noise, mess, and confusion. Everyone was packed in. Boarding felt chaotic. Staff did their best. Food was not as good as on some Emirates flights I've been on. However, it was over quickly. No harm done. Flying can be delightful. Or not. And Emirates seems to handle those days when "not" pretty well."
Cons: "Provided a very poor quality hotel, i missed extremely important business meeting in beirut"
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "Boarding delayed, no information given to passengers Rush and push Not enough seating at airport Food was okay, so so Crew was okay, no compliments nor complaints"
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."
Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."
Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"
Pros: "Nice comfy and roomy seats. Excellent service."
Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "Overall ok, food n entertainment was good"
Cons: "You cannot request seat preference, did not help!!"
Pros: "Service was phenomenal as well as quality of food and entertainment."
Cons: "I can not say anything was wrong at all."
Pros: "الخدمه ممتازه جدا جدا والمضيفين روعه والخدمات كامله"
Cons: "اتمنى كل التوفيق لطيران الامارات والتقدم والازدهار والرقي الخدمات ممتازه جدا وبارك الله فيكم"
Pros: "Treated superbly!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Excellent service, food and media."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, I managed to watch a couple of movies I have been meaning to for a while, the vegan food amazing. Being able to charge my phone from my seat was a bonus."
Cons: "The seats were cramped together. I felt squashed in and I am only small. It was hard to leave the row to use the toilet."
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Cons: "Was not able to get preferred choice of meal due to insufficient availability."
Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"
Cons: "Not knowing about the additional lay over in Larnaca. No mention was made of this layover during the booking process. It just makes this flight extremely long. Furthermore you sit in the uncomfortable plane for a hour. Will most probably never take this flight again."
Pros: "Like everything"
Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."
Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."
Pros: "Plenty of food provided, and crew is very friendly."
Cons: "When boarding at Brisbane Airport to fly back to Singapore, ground staff at the counter called out the boarding passes allocated from back rows to middle rows to start boarding; thereafter the remaining rows were never called out, so passengers like us holding front to middle row seats and following the rules naturally were left behind, at a disadvantage. In the end when not many passengers were left in the Queue, then we joined Q at the back to board."
Pros: "Variety and choice of media entertainment was excellent."
Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."
Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."
Cons: "Restrooms trash bins were full midway through the flight and never cleaned. The restroom floors were full of used diapers causing the restroom and area around them to stink."
Pros: "A380 is so quiet and smooth. Nice to be up the front of the plane, albeit on the lower floor in economy."
Pros: "Boarding was alright nothing special"
Cons: "I didn't like the crew, the main fact was that they forgot about me, they offers everyone else drinks (skipped me) they handed out everyone food (skipped me). I asked a passing crew member for just some water and I got incredible attitude and the guy totally didn't come back with anything, after everyone got their food and the crew disappeared I rang for them and it took them to the point of grabbing everyone's left overs to come by and see what I was asking for, and when I informed them they skipped me and I didn't get anything not even a drink, they said they didn't skip me and they passed out all the food to each person. At that point it was obvious to prove them wrong with everyone around me done eating and I didn't even have a cup or plate. Then they said I didn't want food when they came by............ -_- I'm not an idiot and I wasn't asleep the entire flight which they asked and after a bit of pointless argument they finally gave me some food. It was absolutely the worst experience I have ever had with customer service in my life and emerits is the front page of it."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Emirates. We were very pleased with the crew, check-in process, food and entertainment. The flight experiences (four legs all together) were also very good."
Cons: "The flight from Dubai to New Delhi was delayed due to some aircraft problem. As a result, we missed our train connection in Delhi. The ground crew as well as flight attendants assured us that since it was Emirates' "fault", we would be compensated by Emirates. At Delhi airport we were met by a lady who said that she was the person in charge and no such compensation would be forthcoming. This resulted in a unforeseen hardship for our family of four. Other than this unfortunate experience, we had a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Always love Emirates -- the comfort of their planes, the friendly staff, the value of the experience."
Cons: "The asian vegetarian meal was very sparse -- about 1/3 the offering of everyone else's normal meal. Additionally, the main part of the meal that consisted of two 1 inch square white bread-looking things with a jam and two small slices of cheese was not appetizing. I just know Emirates can do better."
Pros: "The flight comfort, and in-flight entertainment is exceptional value."
Cons: "Did not get my points..very disappointed"
Pros: "Always organised"
Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"
Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Pros: "The design of the storage on the back of the seat in front is very clever and makes a huge difference - e.g. foot rest The entertainment system is very good Food was excellent for plane food"
Pros: "Crew were amazing!"
Pros: "Standard stuff. Nothing particularly worth mentioning. Had worse & had better."
Cons: "Food is disgusting. Like warmed up, over-salted baby food. For a 'premium' airline, I would expect more."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Qantas crew occupied other business class seats and were given preference for meals. When the attendant got to me, there was no selection left. flight attendant got my drink order wrong"
Pros: "Great price Service was great Updated on everything from gate change to flight on timen"
Cons: "Didn't book through Kayak on my previous flights"
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "The crew were great it was on time and overall fabulous"
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Cons: "As an incoming traveller and a Platinum Qantas member, I was refused access to the Qantas Lounge on arrival in Townsville. All I wanted to do was spend fifteen minutes reviewing my diary and directions for the visits planned here. This is the Irish version of hospitality. God bless his departure."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."
Pros: "Crew were very accommodating to the needs to the passengers."
Cons: "Limit the recline on seats to less of an angle in economy."
Pros: "Crew always competent & professional"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "an amazing flying experience with pleasant crews who served their customers with hearts and their lovely smiles!"

Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "More than a biscuit for lunch"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."
Pros: "The plane was on time. There was cool air circulating from the moment we boarded The breakfast, which consisted of cereal, milk and a small muesli bar was good. Sky News was played on the drop down screen"
Cons: "The seats are cramped with very little arm room."
Pros: "everything about he flight was perfect"
Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."
Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"
Pros: "Food was nice, could have been a little bigger. Staff were friendly ... well, except one lady."
Cons: "expected to need the Qantas entertainment app, so didn't pick up headphones from the terminal before departure. However, it was an older plane with seat back TVs (and less choice)."
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "Service good"
Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"
Cons: "Stink The usual cramped seating Long wait to deplane"
Cons: "Seated in middle seat next to a very large and very smelly person I could hardly move and certainly not attlempt to eat or drink . Airlines do need to address this situation with people who are large . Non existent entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was delayed simply due to the poor positioning of the auxiliary power unit that is an acceptable reason for delay which shows absolutely poor operational management of the local airport operations"
Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."
Pros: "Fantastic Service On time Easy boarding"
Pros: "Friendly staff, efficient processes, on time - and the only airline with a direct flight from Brisbane to Tokyo."
Cons: "If only I could afford business class :("
Pros: "It was a good and pleasant flight"
Cons: "The food was not good and it was not enough"
Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"
Pros: "I liked the service, the friendly cabin crews. The food was good. We had a bit of turbulence on the way but all good. Thank you QF"
Cons: "On this particular flight, we had to wait like 30 minutes to get our baggage. Maybe because of the rain but otherwise all was good. Thank you QF"
Pros: "Overall ok."
Cons: "Ancient plane in bad need of a refurb."
Cons: "cramped seats. a miniscule snack, with no napkin to clean up with"
Pros: "Known quality and reliable service It was all right."
Cons: "Entertainment is bring your own screen if you want to see the programme"
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"
Pros: "Crew was amazingly helpful in all my enquiries"
Cons: "All amazing nothing to complain about it"
Pros: "Short flight . It's ok"
Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Seat in last row very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Did not have any meal for the 2h45m flight"
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
Pros: "Good meal - pasta"
Cons: "Expensive flight"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "The service was absolutely amazing! Even though I was sitting in economy, I was offered something to drink before take off and at least 5-10 times throughout the 9 hour flight. The food was really good for airplane food and it was a nice touch to have an actual plate and silverware. When you're traveling, those little touches make a big difference. The entertainment was wonderful - the screen on the back of the seat was really responsive and had a wide selection. I watched three movies and played several games."
Cons: "My only criticism was the boarding process seemed a bit disorganized. I guess I'm used to boarding by zones or numbers. This was just sort of a free for all. But if that's my only criticism, that says a lot about the flight!"
Cons: "The lines for boarding are ineffective and take too long."
Cons: "Would have liked smoother boarding and more live TV choices"
Cons: "The check-in team at Austrian Air insisted I could only take on a single carry-on, even though I'd come with two. Should be one above and one below."
Pros: "Meal service (pasta was excellent), entertainment offerings, enjoyed the small snack bags. Flight not too full allowing for easy access to luggage, and some open seats. Great plane with restrooms in lower fuselage allowing you to walk around and stretch a bit."
Cons: "Leg-room limited, especially in rear window facing (two-seaters) rows 50 and back."
Pros: "The service was good"
Pros: "-The large selection of movies helped pass the time during my 8+ hour flight."
Cons: "-None of the power outlets ever seem to work on airplanes (including this one)."
Pros: "Great Lufthansa service as always. Good food and entertainment selection"
Cons: "The new business class layout is poorly thought, and uncomfortable in many minute, but overall annoying aspects. For example the D isle has the passenger's seat turned towards the right, with the TV on the left. The premium economy seats are almost better for a long daytime flight, if someone plans to spend most of it watching movies."
Cons: "Crew was young and did a good job but I got the feeling they were working their way to their own vacation at the destination."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Plane land on time"
Pros: "Middle seats had little useful legroom due to conduit"
Cons: "The plane was hot, muggy, and had little airflow with no user movable nozzles. Lots of people sweating for 6+hours."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "The flights was considerably delayed, due to Lufthansa's operation issues. Information provided at the terminal was nearly non existent and the posted information on the extent of the delay was inaccurate and not updated. All in all, not effective and non communicative handling."
Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."
Cons: "I don't know"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Stop overcharge people for 1 luggage :( very disappointed"
Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "The plane was kept at a ridiculous hot temperature the whole flight. There were no air vents above your head and it was god awful uncomfortable for 9 hrs. On our return flight they lost all of our luggage from our whole group of people traveling together. 8 bags lost in total."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Seats, crew"
Pros: "The staff on board the plane was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight! Food was delishious!"
Cons: "The ticket kiosk would not read passports. It was so frustrating to have to continuously try over and over again. With no attendant at the location and a long line, I wasn’t sure how to proceed. There were plenty of people having the same difficulty. It took about 12 minutes to occomplish a minut long job."
Pros: "Much shorter flight time."
Cons: "My experience on the second flight was completely different from the first. Staff was not as friendly. Food was bad. No entertainment due to short flight time. Not as good of an experience."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"
Pros: "Very comfortable, amazing crew and service. Entertainment was very good with lots of options."
Cons: "Break between the 2 flights of mire than 6 hours."
Pros: "Probably one of the best economy experiences I have had in a long time. The staff was very friendly and professional. Also one of the first times that i was actually comfortable in an econo seat. Hats off to Lufthansa!"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Lufthansa and SAS. A great combination."
Cons: "Nothing to not like."
Pros: "Professional crew. Excellent service. Punctual. Efficient boarding in Munich. Good communication from pilot"
Pros: "Great pilots and crew."
Cons: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."
Pros: "Telling you you're stupid"
Cons: "getting too many emails about a flight that I've never took"
Pros: "Frankfurt to Cairo boarding was in organized gate 61 toilet not cleane 90% of the phone chargers in Frankfurt airport not working"
Cons: "Lufthansa is a big name must do something for that"
Pros: "Good aircraft, great crew"
Cons: "Flight was 3hrs delayed due to late arrival of the aircraft"
Cons: "Leg room was less"
Pros: "Overall decent experience. The crew was attentive, captain informative."
Cons: "Aircraft not too comfortable but much better than the aircraft in the first leg of my travel from Seattle to Frankfurt."
Pros: "I like the lufthansa Flight. The Crew was Amazing."
Cons: "I didn't like there UNITED Flight merger/connecting flight. United flights are not comfortable at all especially seat's cushion. There in-flight Touch Screens are pathetic. Either United Airlines need to upgrade there planes or Lufthansa should think of avoiding them"
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Pros: "Crew was great. I was traveling with infant and they kept us kept us comfortable"
Pros: "Seat comfort, easy of boarding."
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Pros: "Crew are very helpful, but some how looked unorganized"
Cons: "Complete unorganization during boarding. Not enough staff. Plane is small and no entertainment for a 4:30 out trip."
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service excellent, very friendly crew, and great selection of movies."
Cons: "I typically enjoy Frankfurt airport but perhaps because of a construction, not this time. There was endless walking to get to the gate for the connecting flight that wasn't supposed to be all that far. After about 20-25 walk, we finally arrived to .... the train station that took us to the next terminal. Really? It takes 20-25 to just get to the train when walking straight without the train shouldn't be taking any longer? In addition, our (checked-in) car seats were not transferred and never made it to our final destination, so we had nothing to put the kids in for the ride from the final airport."
Pros: "Service, yr air hostesses are so polite."
Cons: "Food was too little for dinner and breakfast both"
Cons: "very rocky,, too confined for such a long flight.thank you for a good lesson not to go austrian again"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight which delayed boarding but the flight was on time."
Pros: "Great staff, good meals, snacks, and drinks thru the entire flight."
Pros: "Nothing, we never got to go on our flight to Vienna. The only good thing is the manager, Servando, found us an alternative route after some delay. Even then, we had to haggle and really fight for fair treatment for a mistake that was 100% the airline's fault."
Cons: "Our seats were involuntarily given away by the airport staff. We were never notified until we were scanning our tickets to board in. At that time, we had already checked in and received our boarding passes, as well as checking in 3 bags while we were traveling with a large group. There was no way we wanted to volunteer our seats, especially since we had a transfer flight to catch. We clearly stated we did NOT want to volunteer our seats at the ticket counter. No staff notified us until we were about to get on the plane to board. The flight supervisor was very rude and unprofessional, offering us no alternative solutions. I was really disappointed with such a grievous mistake by the airline, and I would not recommend flying Austrian Airlines unless it was absolutely the only airline available. They need to fix their processes for authorizing when they volunteer a passenger's seat. This caused our group a lot of stress and almost became a logistical nightmare."
Pros: "next leg of journey- was delayed three hours and NO one was able to reschedule flights"
Cons: "That flight was delayed for three hours! Causing me not to be able to make connecting flight. No help in Vienna."
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."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. No movies, no music, absolutely nothing. If i could have rated it with no stars i would have."
Cons: "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."
Pros: "no complaints"
Cons: "Flyght was terible"
Cons: "I remember a time when these flights had entertainment on them..."
Pros: "smooth flight, friendly crew"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "I have to pay for food or drink"
Pros: "Plane was half empty, so we could sleep on three middle seats"
Cons: "I would expect more (and better) food for 9 hour intercontinental flight"
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "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."
Pros: "I would suggest to make up some how for my lost as I had other problems derived from missing my United Airlines but so far every body has been very understanding. For example selling me a new ticket at a special price or with some benefit - I WILL NEED TO FLY TO VIENNA AND KIEV AGAIN WITHIN 6 MONTHS - otherwise; I doubt I would ever buy a Austrian plane ticket again. I AM FLYING ON POLISH AIRLINES RIGHT NOW OCT 25TH."
Cons: "When I try to make the change of itinerary on Austrian Airlines on the selling web page, they told me to contact the Austrian Airlines, so I did. The Austrian Airlines lady who told me that I would just lose my tickets and that I could not even pay a penalty to avoid such thing, was very VERY RUDE!! As the Austrian Airlines did not offer me an option but losing my plane ticket,"
Pros: "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."
Pros: "Very organized airline. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
Pros: "Speaking of friendly sky. Great!"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled .No explanation at all.Hotel was given to us.Thank you for that.We dear only 4 hours.The following day we were there since 5 in the morning and the first word was 10 o clock flight.After to many hours they decided that they can bring us to Mynih and after that flight to Tirana.So I left home Thursday 2 o clock and arrive in Tirana after 2 days. No luggage until yesterday.It never happen before.But in top of everything my plans in Albania were messed up.I have to pospne my return flight 1 week and the charges are unbelievable tooo much 650 dollars.I am not stopping here.Thank you."
Pros: "staff realy nice enough room for legs good food"
Pros: "The food was tasty, the crew was nice and overall it was realy good"
Cons: "There wasn't any movies or music as entertainment"
Cons: "LOST BAGGAGE !!!!!!!"
Pros: "I fly this route on Austrian 5 times a year, and I nearly always choose Austrian because it hast the overall best 'package' - a comfortable plane with excellent sleeping seats in business class, the best airline food in the world from Do & Co, the nicest staff that really cares about your well being and the quickest connection between Bangkok and Vienna."
Cons: "The entertainment program is a bit slim, to my taste - but I'm not a big consumer of inflight movies, as I prefer to get more sleep when I fly. When compared to the entertainment program on Singapore Airlines, for example, Austrian's own can't really compete."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food and the boarding at Vienna airport"
Cons: "Please change food, enough of pasta every time."
Pros: "All flight members were servicing very pleasantly"
Pros: "The food was very good! And the movies you could choose too."
Cons: "Austrian cancelled my flight from berlin and rebooked me 2 :/6: later without even letting me know, like if I don't have anything else to do than wait in berlin for 2 days!"
Pros: ".The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "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."
Pros: "Short flight and the crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Loading of the bus to the terminal was slow only 1 bus was available."
Cons: "Predictably, why I was expected to meet the tight schedule between planes squeezed by the 1st flight leaving one hour later than planned, my checked-in baggage apparently wasn't. So for me 35 minutes was more than enough to go through yet another passport checkpoint, security checkpoint, run like a headless chicken then travel by bus to the plane; for AU it wasn't enough to transfer my bag to the connecting flight."
Pros: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Cons: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed leaving Sofia which made connecting flights for many people a rush and very stressful. People were pulled to the front of the plane and told to rush to catch their flights. My bag didn't make my connecting flight but Austrian delivered it 2 days later."
Cons: "if you sit in the rear part of the aircraft no menu no food options for you they give you what have left."
Pros: "Glad to have coffee and sweet treat. Attentive and pleasant crew."
Cons: "My luggage was lost again It is the second time in a row that happens"
Pros: "Salzburg airport connection first leg flight"
Pros: "It went smoothly and my luggage showed upon time"
Cons: "Cramped quarters good thing it was a short hop"
Pros: "Everything went well other than what was served for breakfast."
Cons: "The food that was served for dinner was fine. Some fruit/yogurt would have been far better for breakfast than the muffin that was served."
Pros: "the crew was amazing."
Cons: "Add more movies, use different headphones, can't hear anything. Add snacks to the flight, and make the second meal bigger, a sandwich is not enough in a 10 hour flight. add more drinks to the list"
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "United did not honour the seat assignment that Airfare.com gave me so I sat in a middle seat. But the entire seating plan on United is so bad it should be a violation of the anti torture convention."
Pros: "Crew was nice, plane was new and clean, flight was safe with no issues"
Cons: "Plane was so small, I had a feeling I was on a low cost carrier in Europe. Even carry on couldn't fit above in the bins. This is very disappointing for an airline that used to be great. That plane was like the bottom level of the Titanic where people were squizzed in. Upon arrival in Vienna getting off the plane we had to take the stairs and the bus to the terminal - that's how small the plane was. Just awful."
Cons: "Miles and more didn't register my points for the brussels to Vienna leg!"
Cons: "Ground staff in Detroit and Vienna: - sent us to hotel that didn’t have rooms for us (although they had hours to verify which hotels had rooms available in the area). - They showed up late the next morning. - Austrian Airlines staff in Vienna apparently were unavailable for at least 2 hours to arrange our flight. - The local staff were unwilling to give me a car rental voucher (under the false pretense that the roads were unsafe)."
Cons: "There was no entertainment but I knew that. The comfort rating was not the Airlines fault. We had very turbulent weather for over an hour"
Cons: "A321 boarding/unboarding through a single door is always a disaster. No real food. Lots of very loud pointless announcements. No report of actual flight time (which is available to the pilots). All in all a very poor flight."
