Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"

Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"

Pros: "Crew very helpful."

No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."

Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"

Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."

Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."

Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"

Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("

Pros: "ON TIME."

Pros: "Check in was swift"
Cons: "Friendlier approach from the crew"

Cons: "Austrian could learn from the likes of singapore airlines and cathay pacific: the choice of movies was pretty limited (1 italian, 1 french, 1 spanish) and the games were simply boring. The food was ok, breakfast pretty terrible (breed but no butter, reconstructiesergramingtheworstieverate.Stodwoowfs"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants,"
Cons: "Timeliness"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They lost our bags, twice! We had 4 pieces of luggage that were checked together. They flew out of the same airport we did. They lost 3 out of the 4 bags, but assured me all 3 were on the very next flight. The next flight came in but only 2 more had been put on that flight. Still waiting on 4th..."

Pros: "The crew was not very unhelpful & hardly accommodating, not helpful at all. I have never met such a cold hearted airline crew, so unthankful & not trying to help customer. They kept rolling their eyes & speaking like I was a dirt. I will NEVER fly this airline & I will make sure everyone knows."
Cons: "Came early to counter & my passport expires August 9th, so they refuse to help me & did not let me go on board even though I had approval from Jordanian country to fly there. Austerian ticket crew & supervisor did not want even to check the pass through to board with permission. The WORSE airline!!!"

Pros: "Flight was relatively empty today, therefore boarding was smooth and easy. I had a row to myself.. Smoothest landing ever... just a lucky day"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, polite crew."
Cons: "1. Check-In , Check-In , check-In .. automated much more time consuming and probably costly. 2. Delayed flight (as usual) .. 6.am D.T. should either mean 6.00 or 6.05 or 6.10 ... but not 6.30. 3. Very tight connection flights in Vienna, so a slight delay could mean missed connection. 4. Food"

Pros: "Everything went very well! Boarding was easy, the flight was smooth with little turbulence, we arrived on time, the crew was friendly and attentive, the food was good!"
Cons: "Everything was very smooth, except that the seats were not very comfortable!"

Pros: "Timely departure and pleasant staff on board"
Cons: "It was cold during the flight,"

Cons: "Hand luggage not allowed onboard due to being just a bit oversized -- just its wheels only. Never had this problem with the same luggage with other airlines, only with Austrian."

Pros: "It was a high quality service hands down."
Cons: "The available entertainment choices were a little limited."

Pros: "Seats more comfortable."
Cons: "Flight left late. Unboarding took a long time. Didn't hold connecting flight, missed it. Now on 5 hr wait and may miss airport transit."

Pros: "All flights were on schedule"

Cons: "Seats are very small. Plane was cramped. Snack was not very good. Need healthy options."

Pros: "Nothing so far"
Cons: "Our luggage did not make it in a 2nd flight. We had to fill out many many many oaoers st Odessa airport It took 1,5 hours & our ride to hotel did not wait for us & left. Some other taxi driver gave ya a ride & charged ys $50 rather than $20 that ya the cost of our reserved ride. When we got to our hotel, we had to pay $20 for the transfer to hotel even though he left. Now we have no toothbrush or any change of clothes & hopefully we will get our luggage tomorrow after 2pm"

Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "There were a large group of very smelly passengers that came in at the end portion of boarding. The AC counldnt handle it and the crew didn’t use any spray to save the rest of us suffocating passengers. Thank goodness the flight was short."

Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight. Nice refreshments"

Pros: "I watched three good movies during the flight to London. I enjoyed them."
Cons: "Nothing particular."

Cons: "I sat in the last corner seat on the plane... very cramped as there’s no leg room, no window & was overbooked."

Pros: "The flight was basic service to get me from one place to another. It was completely average and not quite the Austrian service I have previously known."
Cons: "See previous comments"

Pros: "The crew was extremely professional. Smiling and confident in their jobs. (The complimentary wine didn’t hurt either!)"

Pros: "Everything. Keep up the good work."

Pros: "Flight smoothness, service, friendliness, pilot experience, stewardesses (except for one), food, delicious."
Cons: "All flight attendants were great except for one tall with very short blonde hair. What a poor attitude! She really ruined my trip. There was not an exchange with her that was friendly and agreeable. When serving drinks a second time, she asked me what would I like to drink and I answered: What do you have? I had not asked the first time drinks were served since I knew I wanted orange juice. he second time, and not wanted to drink the same, I asked: what do you have? and her answer was: "Same as before". I had to let her know I had not asked before and then she proceeded to tell me the different drinks and finally added: My colleague will take care of you. She did not want to serve me. The first incident went I tried to use the bathroom in the back of the plane, she would tell people: "don"t use that one, I need that bathroom for......." ( not sure for what but her tone was so rude,that people walked to the other bathroom embarrassed). All I can say is that everything else was great, including the friendliness of all other crew, but that one ruined the experience. A third time I got up to walk to the bathroom and the seatbelt sign was on, but so it had been for a long time. She prompted me to go back to my seat. All others seem to do their job without been rude, Not sure why this one couldn't. Job stress? Not the passenger's problem. Besides that and the poor movie choices, everything else was great. I think the flight was delayed but to that point everything was going so smooth, I didn't even notice. I will fly Austrian again, and would love to visit Vienna. Please advise how to add the miles of my trip to my account. I booked in Kayak, left to Ohio from Miami running from hurricane Irma, my return from Ohio to Miami was cancelled and I had to embark on that long plan10 day trip without even returning home to Miami to pack. I totally forgot about putting the miles on my account on either ticket counter."

Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind and evetything was on time. The food is tasty."
Cons: "No entertainment at all."

Cons: "Flight was late"

Pros: "Leg room, kind staff in the airplane"
Cons: "Staff at service desk -unprofessionalism, never on time. Charged 3 times for infant ticket because of computer errors but lack of human factor explaining why, just completely horrible explanations."

Pros: "I like that flight boarding was quick and in time.it was a short flight My name is Hispary."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. Food was good and the boarding was efficient."
Cons: "I was generally pleased with the value and qulity received."

Pros: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time"
Cons: "No entertainment, plane seemed a bit old as it made weird noises at certain altitudes"

Pros: "Good service overall"

Pros: "The crew worked so hard and were always ready to do more for any problem that arose, be it, mothers with babies, the elderly and infirm, the less than gracious occasional passenger, or younger children. The entertaining things on the individual screens also helped make the long periods of sitting more manageable for young and old."
Cons: "I didn't like how the passengers in general, left the cabin of the plane in such a mess! The crew came through several times for refuse, so I couldn't understand. Leaving pillows and blankets should be the only thing to clear out. Maybe a note on the TV screen could say, "a tidy plane helps flights be on time :-)""

Pros: "The service on board was fantastic. The flight was very smooth."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We were stuck on the ground at London for what seems like ages."

Cons: "We paid in advance for Do & Co meals but the crew did not notice we had done so. We had to ask them to go find them, and by then there was not enough time left to heat them and eat them"

Cons: "It was advertised as Austrian Airlines but when the details came through afterwards only then did it state that it was a United Airlines flight. So, I can't rate this flight because it had nothing to do with Austrian Airlines. You need to update your site so that it clearly states "Operated by..." when people are booking."

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."

Cons: "My row was bypassed a couple of times for food/beverage service even though we were wide awake and looking expectantly at the flight attendant. Sometimes she asked me if I wanted a drink or something and as I was answering she looked away and moved on. I couldn't believe it. Then after pressing the service button and waiting a long time for her to return, she acted like it was a huge inconvenience."

Pros: "Not at all a comfortable experience, but I suppose it served its purpose."
Cons: "Seats in economy class are way too crowded, plane was too warm and air was stale (and had an odd odor). Choices of dinner selections ran out quickly, and serving any type of curry (the only option left) on an 8 hour flight is a very questionable choice.... Staff gave some people the full can of drinks, while others only a half glass. Also, even though there was not much turbulence throughout the flight, the plane was still VERY shaky for the majority of the time in the air. Not very comforting for those who are not frequent flyers. In the future, I plan to stick with British Airlines."

Pros: "Reasonably on time. Food and service were passable."
Cons: "Very old plane, the entertainment system was awful. Wifi did not work at all."

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "Food & extremely old plane with no electrical outlets no Wi-Fi and the entertainment system was rubbish . The food was terrible. One passenger mentioned that the bathroom was in terrible shape. I actually tidied up the bathroom before I left cause my bathroom was also in terrible shape or getting there. This plane needs to be retired it is so old! United Airlines should be embarrassed! I can't believe this plane is still in circulation at least the inside of it! How about updating it to modern times?"

Pros: "Served a lot of food. Most personnel friendly and helpful. Enjoyed entertainment selections. Plus this flight was $300 cheaper than the others. Convenient times and choice of airports."

Pros: "I liked the service and the polite staff. Timelyness also we liked.I will use united again."

Pros: "The flight was quick, food good, crew friendly. we landet earlier than expected."
Cons: "This was an older plane and even I paid for economy plus, there was no outlet, no on ddemand movies and the seat was not as comfortable as in a newer plane. Very little space in the overhead departments, even for carry on luggage."

Pros: "Everything was fine — but every bit of this flight was managed by United — the aircraft, the crew, the check-in desk — never encountered anything related to Austrian Air the whole time."

Pros: "We liked that the boarding process seemed to have been streamlined and organized from other flights (this was a UNITED flight which we flew through Austrian Airlines). It was efficiently done. We thought the selection of movies to watch were terrific. So glad to have caught up on several I had wanted to see. Considering we had a 3 hour delay, I got to catch up on ALL the movies I wanted to watch!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed just over 3 hours by a mechanical problem with the radar. We taxied to a remote gate while they tried to fix it. Original estimates were an hour, but it ended up being 3 hours. We stayed onboard which was probably best in this case - but having been trapped by United on a flight many years ago from 4 pm until midnight with 3 small children and then told to come back at 7 am the next day - I am very wary of the airline now and actually drive from Washington to Chicago as we could have done that in the time they trapped us! This flight was practically empty however, so unlike many transatlantic flights, we could spread out and were more comfortable than usual. So that was lucky for United otherwise my scores might have been a LOT worse! Also, we hadn't eaten, figuring that we would eat dinner on the flight. So after 3 hours we were a bit peckish! The crew came around with a cookie and water. Really think that might have been a little more especially considering the flight had so few passengers. So we arrived back in DC just about 10 pm and, after clearing customs and getting bags, were home to Arlington about midnight - 5 am our time! Given the conditions and circumstances, the crew did a good job. I would like to think that Austrian Airlines would have some input with United. The outbound daytime flight from Washington to London had been simply terrific with a wonderful crew - new to the route I think. They gave as pointers as to what we were seeing out the window, which we always appreciate. Just as my daughter wondered what we were seeing out the window, the captain would tell us. So in short, the outbound flight was in a different league to the return flight. But that's down to United and not Austrian Airlines. And these things happen and I'm glad we didn't have to change planes or make other plans."

Cons: "I paid for extra leg room to sit in economy plus. My friend who paid the same price as me for our original ticket, but didn't upgrade was put in the same row at no additional cost. The seatting pricing is rigged."

Pros: "Getting off the plane! Never to return!!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for an over seas flight. Cramped and uncomfortable . Had to literally climb over the seat to get out of a seated position."

Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."

Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."

Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."

Cons: "Delay due to strike"

Cons: "Flight got cancelled"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"

Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"

Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"

Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."

Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"

Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."

Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"

Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."

Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."

Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."

Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"

Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"

Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."

Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."

Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"

Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"

Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"

Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."

Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."

Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."

Pros: "was very quick"

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"

Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."

Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "One crew member servicing first class was in a mood “not to be here” - it is sad because of first class experience is higher than usual! It was just bad!"
Cons: "I honestly don’t have an answer for this, I guess these kind of crew should not on board especially in first class!"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very good entertainment system."

Pros: "It was on one of their newer planes which meant that we had decent comfort and entertainment!"
Cons: "The seats were staggered between the middle and sides, so my family was eventually split across two rows. I hadn't expected that."

Pros: "All good. Very hospitable cabin crew, great service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Customer service and efficiency"
Cons: "The delay because of a software glitch"

Cons: "The time. Ity was very delayed. Almost lost my last connection."

Pros: "The blueberry juice was good!!"
Cons: "Sitting by the bathrooms. There weren’t even pretzels."

Pros: "Flew on new A350, liked the seat TV, live map/camera. Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Website is very poor and ended up making booking through call centre and paying double what website was offering. Food & drink is expensive. In flight wi-fi expensive."

Pros: "Great service on biz class, comfortable seat, quiet airplane (A350)."
Cons: "I liked it all."

Pros: "The new Airbus A350"
Cons: "Onboard food and drink is quite expensive"

Pros: "Far better quality and value than BA, it's OneWorld partner."
Cons: "It was all good."

Pros: "We were kept informed about the delay"
Cons: "Has to wait 14 hours in Helsinki for a 25 minute connecting flight"

Pros: "The staff were thoughtful and kind. They checked on us and offered snacks and water very regularly. My favorite, though, was that the captain took the time to alert us to the sights out the window. We had closed the shades at the request of the attendants and would have missed the beauty of Greenland had he not alerted us to peak out. I appreciate that!"

Cons: "Not offered a beverage ."

Pros: "I was surprised with an amount of drinks and food provided.Everything was delicious, and we were very hungry so imagine our happy faces. The crew was professional in all ways.Flight was smooth and comfortable-applause for the pilots!"

Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"

Pros: "Made up some of lost time from delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats cramped"

Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."

Pros: "the crew were very friendly, well organized. movie selection was great. meals were surprisingly good and plentyful"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. as soon as the person in front of me reclined their seat to either sleep or lounge, I had my food tray on my chest and the small tv screen 8 inches away from my nose. Thankfully Im small but the man sitting next to me was rather tall and had to turn into a human pretzel to fit in that seat and space allotted."

Pros: "The flight was great...the staff are wonderful people...they are so sweet and kind...they work so hard...the service was great...I love their personalities..The Movie selection was awesome...Because of my broken leg, they were there to help me right away...amazing crew...will be flying with them again in October....looking forward to flying with British Airways again... Thank you for the care... Yours Truly, Sylvia Smith..."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all...."

Cons: "No TSA pre check"

Pros: "AA fly to/from Charlotte and if you are lucky you'll get a local NC crew, southern drawl included. The A330's are nice, even without Prem Economy the seating space is decent on the former USAir metal."
Cons: "The USB charge points do not work. Plus, the touch screens for the IFE require a lot of hard tapping on the screen, annoying for the people in the seat on which back the screen is placed."

Pros: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"

Cons: "I wanted to go home early..... They wanted to charge me 400 dollars to change my booking"

Cons: "The movies did not play on my screen. I tried to use the screen on the seat next to me and the movies quit in the middle. It was very annoying."

Cons: "I booked this through Finnair and it was a British Airways code share .I was unable to get the record locator for BA and could not check in prior to getting to the airport ."

Pros: "Good service...."

Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."

Pros: "I flew with American to London and with British in the way back... British air is such a nicer experience from the food, to the crew, to the entertainment."

Cons: "I am 6'1" tall. Seats were designed for 5'1" persons."

Cons: "We were unable to find a row of seats to more comfortably facilitate traveling with a baby and a toddler as seats that should have had a cot or extra seating didn't have the cot and were sold out for an additional fee before we had the chance to. Discussing this with the staff at check0in and at the gate, made no difference as they had no knowledge of what was available on that particular flight. Every time I fly with American I'm reminded of why I don't like the airline and I will do my best to avoid them moving forward regardless of competitive ticket pricing."

Cons: "15 hours before the flight, I was locked out from the website to check in and secure seats. I then called British airways to do so and after 15 min of the agent trying to get seats, she told me that there was a shutdown and no passengers were able to do so and everyone had to book seats at airport. When I got to Heathrow, the agent told me that was not true and everyone was able to book online.. Misleading!"

Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."

Cons: "Never picking up garbage (telling us the next crew will do that) The cabin a mess. NO LEG ROOM. Terrible."

Pros: "Service was great"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Food wasn't very good"

Pros: "Flights were on BA not Finnair"
Cons: "Ba website did not work properly."

Pros: "geting off"
Cons: "To cramped so I will go back to Delta"

Pros: "it was fine"

Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Pre boading not enforced, all passengers boarding at the same."

Pros: "Although I booked this as Finnair, it was actually a British Airways flight, as I knew it would be. And it was fine--I don't think Finnair gets much credit, but whatever. I'd actually have liked to travel with someone more exotic!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I booked this trip thinking it was with a European carrier - I had specifically wanted to avoid an American carrier. I was unable to confirm my flight online and had to ring because at NO POINT was I sent info that it was AA and not Finnair. I was charge almost $60 for this service because I did not have the right references sent with my confirmation email. T he seats were cramped and uncomfortable, I was unable to pick my seat on any flight and despite my request could not change it. Boarding at Chicago was a farce, none of the ground crew seemed to be in charge and we barely started boarding with 20 mins to takeoff. Needless to say the flight left late and we had to wait to take off, and of course had to wait to land in London."

Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. It was a long flight and they kept bringing us drinks and snacks for 10+ hours."

Pros: "Arrived on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Great crew. Lots of refreshments."

Pros: "This was actually a USAirways flight now rebranded as American. A lot of people had to check baggage. There was no in-seat video entertainment. The crew were surly."

Cons: "No individual air controls for each seat"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Disembarkation at Belfast"

Pros: "How friendly the crew is Ease of boarding Good organization Mostly on time"
Cons: "At least free beverages:)"

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Captain gave some nice hotspots to look out for as clear day."
Cons: "Standing for ages before boarding and in plane. Very basic and couldn't print boarding pass before travel. Seemed like a glitch with Aerlingus and I phoned but said they would forward to technical dept. No one got back to me. This caused unnecessary stress due to connections."

Cons: "Poor customer service"

Cons: "Customer interaction is a joke"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All food and beverages had to be bought"

Pros: "Comfort. Ease of travel."
Cons: "Inflight shopping range"

Pros: "Crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Announcement could be clearer. Sometimes gabled and indistinct."

Cons: "When booking there is an option for Food? This gives the appearance that food isn't included in your flight unless you pay extra."

Pros: "Such nice people"

Pros: "Good price , good career"

Cons: "Nada de entretenimiento, nada"

Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge. This was very frustrating and seems to be a common problem as it was also the same scenario on the out bound flight to London which then caused me to miss my transatlantic flight as Aerlingus delayed the flight leaving Dublin plus air bridge problem"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Gate unknown till last minute"

Pros: "The air hostess were ok."
Cons: "The flight was quick"

Cons: "After dinner, icecreme was served in Dixie cups to some passengers but not to me. Flight attendant seemed aloof."

Pros: "Waiting ages at another carousel from NY flight meant that I missed the booked flight and had to pay another $60.00. This was efficiently done...but notice about bags being taken off roundabout would help.I thought it was a tour groups's and did not search for my missing bag ...Young woman in the Air linguis Dublin baggage office sweet and patient ...give her a raise."
Cons: "The enormous distance between getting off one plane and trying to get on to another ...some signage confusing re Internal direction to Terminal 2"

Cons: "Still have not received a credit they owe me."

Pros: "You lost myluhgage. I have no clean clothes to ware"

Pros: "Staff and service"

Cons: "It was fine, but once again, not able to choose or upgrade seats."

Cons: "I had a changeable ticket but could only do so a 1counter. Missed earlier flight as a result. Terrible service. At Dublin airport going out they let me change at the gate. Bot not in Heathrow."

Pros: "Really comfortable seat"
Cons: "Had to divert to Shannon due to fig. Bussed in FREEZING ancient vehicle to Cork"

Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."

Pros: "Friendly helpful crew"

Pros: "Cold air was on for the entire flight, despite it being 4 degrees outside"

Cons: "Broken seats, headphone socket not working, smell of aviation fuel in cabin and then our luggage did not arrive at our final destination."

Pros: "Not much to tell."
Cons: "Long walk to gate. Getting from terminal 5 to terminal 2 on a bus."

Pros: "no delays, comfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight attendants went right past us never asking if we wanted anything. They served the people to our right and in front of us. Mystifying."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Your company pulled a bait and switch. You stuck me with the most unprofessional and uncooperative packager in the industry. I wasn’t apprised by Kayak that you were pawning me off on a sleazy packager."

Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Aer Lingus are always late departing, but it was a blessing this time as I'd have missed the connection otherwise!"

Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"

Pros: "On board staff is very nice."
Cons: "Ticket counter agent at SFO placed wrong tag on suitcase. This created lost luggage 4 four days. Boarding gate time posted on boarding pass from DUBto SFO as gate closing at 10:25 am when flight left at 12:30pm. We ran to gate to be told the gate won’t open for boarding until 11:40. While at DUB going to LHR none of the Aer Lingus staff told us we were to go to British Airways terminal until we got to counter. Why couldn’t there be advance notice?Aer Lingus is lame. This was my first & last time I fly Aer Lingus."

Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Last persons rubbish left in Seat pockets"

Pros: "Punctuality and cost"

Pros: "Quiet, short"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time, no fuss, got us there"

Pros: "The window seat."
Cons: "No Guiness"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Delay at Dublin waiting for plane to get parked"

Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Reservations"

Cons: "We missed this flight due to Kayak's failure to get us on any other flights to Chicago after our original one was cancelled."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight even though little floor space."
Cons: "Small seats. Not much legroom."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."

Cons: "Professional staff"

Pros: "Everything went surprisingly smooth. Coffee was good, but had to pay for it"
Cons: "Didn't try the food"

Cons: "It was only an hour flight which needed no meal, but a cold drink (not water), free of charge, would have come in appreciated. This comes in very useful (and even necessary) when it is remembered that it was a morning flight which made passengers to leave their houses very early without having time to take breakfast before leaving home. And those who needed assistance with a wheel chair were left at the last point to the boarding of flight as early as 7:00 AM with no opportunity to look around for food."

Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Did not like...paying for all drinks. Attendant were not honest when asking them questions. Asked for water never received it. Asking for UNCEF donations. Food was lousy. Movie choices terrible. Music choices terrible."
