Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "The Crew was on top of passengers requests. I asked three different crew memberrs for paper towels and no one delivered."

Cons: "the flight from Cairo to Egypt was extremely bad . I understand that the relationship between both countries is not at its best. However, this is not an excuse for racist and bigoted behavior from You staff , the plane was 2 hours late, the staff was literally yelling at the passengers because they were standing at the gate assigned to the ticket. And your plane crew was extremely rude, this one flight attendant frowned at my wife's face and starting sanitizing her hand after my wife gave her ticket."

Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"

Cons: "NO ONE IN TURKISH AIRLINES WILL HELP YOU AND WHEN YOU ASK FOR HELP IT BECOMES AN INCONVENIENCE FOR THEM. HERE'S THE STORY, MY FLIGHT WAS 2 HOURS LATE SO WHEN WE LANDED TO CATCH OUR TRANSIT FLIGHT IT WAS ALREADY GONE. SO WHEN WE ARRIVE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE ABOUT A HOTEL OR FOOD THEY HAND US THIS PAPER AND TOLD US TO GO TO THE HOTEL THAT IS IN THE AIRPORT IT WOULD BE FOR FREE ALONG WITH THE FOOD. WHEN WE GET THERE THEY TOLD US NO, IT IS ONLY FOR BUSINESS TRAVELERS AND WHEN WE EXPLAIN THAT PASSPORT CONTROL SENT US HERE WITH THIS PAPER THEY RESPONDED NO, WE NEED A HOTEL VOUCHER AND WE NEED TO GO BACK. WHEN WE ASK HER TO CALL PASSPORT CONTROL (BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES WHO SENT US TO THEM) TO SPEAK TO THEM YOURSELF, SHE SAYS "IT'S NOT OUR PROBLEM" WHICH THEN MADE ME SNAP AT HER AND TELL HER WTF DO YOU MEAN ITS NOT YOUR PROBLEM? YOU WORK HERE!!" SO WHEN I ASK FOR THE MANAGERS NUMBER FOR COMPLAINT SHE GIVES ME A 5 DIGIT NUMBER THAT LOOKS MORE LIKE A ZIP CODE THEN A PHONE NUMBER. THEN WE GO BACK TO PASSPORT CONTROL WHO TOLD US THAT WE WOULD HAVE A FREE HOTEL AND FOOD THEY CHANGED THERE STORY AND DIRECTED US TO PAY FOR A VISA AND PAY FOR A HOTEL OUTSIDE. SO IN THE END THEY GAVE US A BULLSHIT STORY SO THEY CAN GET RID OF US AND HAVE US RUN AROUND WHERE IN THE END WE GAVE UP AND SLEPT IN THE AIRPORT TILL WE GOT HOME. THIS IS WHEN I WAS COMING BACK WITH TURKISH AIRLINES. GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION THE FLIGHT WAS LATE 4 HOURS AND LUCKILY FOR US WE HAD A LONG LAYOVER THAT WE DIDNT MISS MY FLIGHT GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION. SO GOING AND RETURNING FLIGHT WAS LATE! WORST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD!! I WOULD NEVER FLY WITH TURKISH AIRLINES! AND WHILE I WAS THERE FINALLY GETTING READY TO GO HOME A MAN SAT BEHIND ME AND ASKED ME IF I WAS GOING ON THE SAME FLIGHT AS HIM AND I TOLD HIM NO WHICH THEN HE STRIKES UP THE CONVERSATION AS TO HOW TURKISH AIRLINES MADE HIM MISS HIS FIGHT AND GAVE HIM HELL! SO I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PROBLEM! IN THE END HE SAID TO ME TURKISH AIRLINES IS GARBAGE! AND I DONT BLAME HIM!! STAFF WAS THE WORST THING TO DEAL WITH AT TURKISH AIRLINES!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!"

Cons: "If they provided any food, I slept through it. But I think I would have woken up, do I don't think they did. It was an early morning flight and luckily I brought some breakfast, or I would not have eaten for several hours on my transfer flight to SFO."

Pros: "Good schedules, short wait, nice and helpful personnel, on time, nice plane, bathrooms, good food"
Cons: "No air in cabin"

Pros: "Top notch service on the airplane"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew and quality of food and beverages served"
Cons: "Edinburgh boarding gate was changed 3 times and the flight was delayed"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind, but the food was superb (not what I've experienced in the past on other flights). Those gift packs of a toothbrush/slippers/ eye mask was also so wonderful! That eye mask and ear plugs saved me during the flight and during my entire trip"
Cons: "While we took off/ landed softly, I felt that the overall noise that the plane had while in flight was loud, almost too loud to fall asleep without headphones."

Cons: "Great experience"

Cons: "Ok"

Pros: "The staff are all very professional and nice."

Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as, if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."

Cons: "It was unbearably hot on the plane. I was wearing shorts and a tank top and was sweating."

Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I am a pilot in uniform flying with a business class ticket and missed my next flight because I had to check my bag because it was 9 kilos. There was not one over head bin that had anything in it. No other airline that I travel on treated me like that it was humiliating and frankly never will chose Turkish again."

Cons: "The fact that the flight was cancelled and I wasn't notified"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Notthing"

Pros: "Better planes"

Pros: "Turkish delight and endless beverage service :)"

Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."

Cons: "The flight boards in Istanbul had two flights leaving for Cairo at the exact same time but at two different gates far from each other. This caused massive confusion and I ended up running around the airport to get to my gate. Also there should not have been a second flight listed on the boards because there was no second flight. Very frustrating..."

Pros: "Good old style service"
Cons: "Leg room is very tight"

Pros: "Easy boarding process"
Cons: "Crew climbed over my seat multiple times in order to get their stuff from the overhead bins. Also loud when people were trying to sleep"

Cons: "More legroom"

Pros: "Got to ride on a Boeing 747 Intercontinental!"
Cons: "It’s hard to give a good review when the first of three flights is an hour late. Made me and my wife run through Frankfurt airport to make my connection. Only made it by 2 minutes. Frankfurt security was super slow and no one cares."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Should have been on time"

Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."

Pros: "Standard good Lufthansa service"
Cons: "Munich airport is very difficult to reach. I avoid it whenever possible."

Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the food was surprisingly delicious and despite weather conditions being rough and causing significant turbulence the pilot handled it well and landed so smoothly I could honestly barely tell we had landed!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty comfortable for economy seats but still could have been a bit more comfortable. The standard leg room could be increased as well as overhead storage"

Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."

Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"

Pros: "It was very smooth, the connection was great, boarding went easy, service was nice."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and because I booked pretty late, didn't get the seat choice I wanted. I purchased the flight via the Lufthansa site, but then on check-in, I found out that the first segment was SAS, so neither the Lufthansa site nor the SAS site let me check in online."

Cons: "Flight late"

Pros: "The service and the entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was not up to the mark, which it almost always is. The crew were a little rude at times, which is also not very common with this airlines."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was not on this flight."

Pros: "Entertainment is good with literally hunreds of movies. Even the screens are fairly good."
Cons: "It's nice to have digital magazines now of Lufthansa flights, but I am not sure why there are hundreds of movies but only ONE magazine to chose from."

Pros: "Nothing really. KLM or LOT are way better."
Cons: "Get your own food or you will stay hungry. 12 hours flight with 2 crappy meals served with no option of getting anything else except candy bars or pretzels."

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "My overall experience was good"

Pros: "Crew very nice and carefull"
Cons: "My luggage was destroied ;-("

Pros: "On time, Staff were excellent"
Cons: "Poor snack (sugary cookie) Big rush to make connection in Frankfurt, almost missed it. Should allow at least 2 hours to connect as they use buses to transfer from plane to terminal and often have to go through security again."

Pros: "Same as above."

Pros: "Great staff, very attentive. Food was good. With all the people on the plane, our flight attendant remembered what we drank from the first time. Comfortable seats. Left late, but made up time and arrived right on schedule."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The service was amazing. Why can’t US carriers be like them?!"

Pros: "I said everything in another evaluation"

Pros: "Finally an upgraded plane. The plane from Frankfurt to Mumbai was not the best. On business class - small washroom with the toilet lid collapsing on you. One of the washrooms also not functional. Liked the food and the service."
Cons: "Sink not functioning properly in business class."

Cons: "Plane closed the gate two hours before departing. Should have waited for passengers delayed by weather and lack of a sufficient ground crew."

Pros: "overall good flight"
Cons: "5 hours delay in take off from frankfurt. reason - ice on plane wings. snow in frankfurt is not uncommon, and lufthansa needs 5 hours to clear ice? and why board people in the plane when you know you can't fly ?"

Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."

Pros: "Service"

Cons: "Sold me upgraded bulkhead seat and emergency row on way back. But given regular seats for both flights. Plane change on one flight and they upgraded family to exit row for other. No acommodation from flight attendants. They did offer empty "upgraded" premium economy seats for extra $300 on top of what I already paid. seats so narrow & thin (to squeeze more seats In), my hips hurt for final 3 hours. Miserable experience. Lufthansa fails in customer service."

Cons: "Flight delayed over four hours, no explanation or apology given. Missed our connecting flight, arrived home over 8 hours later than planned."

Cons: "The security line at the Berlin airport was very long. It took almost 40 minutes and the airline was not providing information / assurances that the plane would wait."

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. The sandwiches offered were extremely dry."

Cons: "I had a business class seat but it was really more like premium economy for other airlines, but with lower quality. Food, especially for business clsss was not very good. The person next to me flies with them often and pre-requested gluten free but they didn't have anything for her. The seats were not clean with a leftover tissue and apple core from a previous flight. Lufthansa is now my last resort option when flying to and from Europe."

Cons: "The company denied any responsibility for the passenger and for the full fill the trip"

Pros: "Allowing people to cut in line No security No help Nothing dine"
Cons: "No communication No concern Hot tired hungry"

Pros: "I liked the service and friendliness of the crew and number of items available on the flight."
Cons: "The food was not amazing (but not the worst I've had either) . The flight announcements were a bit annoying as they kept interrupting the movies (mainly because they were off and on)"

Cons: "Flight attendants were rude, inattentive, and unhelpful. Made us put both carry-ons under our seats while other people had both carry-ons in overheads. Super uncomfortable flight and terrible experience."

Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable seats on plane. Stayed on time."

Pros: "Crew was fine. Food was ok."
Cons: "Delay, twice - before we boarded and then again after we taxied."

Pros: "The food tasted really good and especially the bread was much more appealing than on our previous flight. The flight attendants were very efficient and attentive. I liked that they asked the person in front of me to put his seat up during the meal time. That helped me eat more comfortably. Entertainment options were extensive."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and was tedious. It took forever because there was not an orderly line and just a jumble of people. We had to show our passports 3 different times between check in and boarding. People had put their passports away, then had to get them out again at the gate. That slowed everything down to a crawl. Our party was not accommodated when we asked for seats together. My husband and I were separated and we were separated from our kids. The ground crew did not seem to care. Take off was delayed, but the captain never told us why. The guy in front of me reclined his seat the whole time. I felt like a sardine in a can. So uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Nothing, the anounced railway wagon wasn't availabel"
Cons: "I lost my luggage at Frankfurt Airport due to poor information policy of Lufthansa - so at first hand they didn´t inform Copa Airlines that there is no luggage check out at Stuttgart Railway Station any more for years now. In Stuttgart the lost-and-found office have changed since 2 weeks to an other company and they didn`t inform the headquarter in Ffm. about that, so that they rep gave me the wrong phone- and email-numbers. Finally I had to drive the next day to Stuttgart Airport to claim my lost luggage at Ffm Airport."

Cons: "My frequent flyer number did not show up"

Cons: "I wanted to check 2 bags, even though you only get one free checked bag for economy international. The desk agent at check-in wouldn't check my second bag and didn't know how much the fee even was for the second bag. She was not exactly pleasant, which might have been because it was 430 in the morning but still. I just ended up carrying on two pretty big bags. The crew ended up gate checking one for me in Frankfurt which was nice. But I would have paid not to carry that dumb thing around with me through the giant Frankfurt airport. Other than the one desk woman in Prague, everything else was good."

"I had a small back pack and a small suitcase. The boarding staff were extremely rude and wouldn’t let me take both on board. Only one small bag on board even though there was tons of space and I paid for premium seat. Also—they want you to wear their mask—even though I had n95. Will definitely avoid this airline in the future"

"The crew was visible, helping and offering drinks all the time. The checking at the gate was unprofessional, and the boarding was a mess."

"Check in of luggage the day before"

Cons: "Food is looking not fresh and quality is cheep ...."

Pros: "Austrian Airlines is the best! Crew, food, drinks, entertainment, and plugins were all provided, and it was all very nice (and delicious food!)."
Cons: "Nothing! Love Austrian Airlines!"

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable. Crew was great."

Cons: "To arrive on time."

Pros: "Staff and the service"
Cons: "Dinner was so bad"

Cons: "Complete experience and issue, resolution"

Pros: "They DID NOT let me aboard the airline!!! Austerian airline is the worst EVER, because they are not even helping me to get a credit to fly Monday to Israel. The of ticket counter at ORD were treating me as a dirt. And unwelcome. I was trying to reason with them, they did NOT want to help."
Cons: "It would have been better if back to back with priceline helped me out to get to another flight & they won’t even credit my ticket, so I LOST about $1200 & was excited for my vacation. They were unhelpful & they kept putting me untold & hanging up on me with their ticket agency on phone too."

Pros: "Food was good. Plane was good."
Cons: "Night flight should turn off light. Staff was not skillful and professional."

Pros: "Friendly crew with a wide range of entertainment options"
Cons: "Smoother boarding. Was great once on board."

Pros: "-maintenance had to fix an issue that the team was not transparent about for 2.5 hours. 0at least boarding happened swiftly -the male crew member was GREAT but the female crew members two of them were very short, rude, and not there to bring comfort to customers -chicken meal was tasty, but made both me and my father sick. Muffin for breakfast was mediocre as well -tv was good, but touch screen sometimes doesn't work."

Cons: "When we checked in, we were told we didn't have seats because the plane was overbooked. We waited at the gate for information. The attendants were curt and not helpful, they told us they had no information. After the plane was boarded, we were finally given tickets with seats and rushed onto the plane. When we arrived at the Sarajevo airport, our luggage and the luggage of many passengers did not arrive! We waited in a line for 1.5 hours to put in a claim for our suitcases. It was not a good experience."

Pros: "On time take off"

Pros: "On time take off"
Cons: "They serve non-halal food with Muslim menu. They think hat non-pork meat means halal/zabihah. Non friendly flight crew"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled on the first day. I had to call to find out that I was rebooked on a flight the next day."

Pros: "Very good drink service (one cold and one hot drink)"

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, business class seats that lay flat"
Cons: "Rang twice for attendants when I dropped my phone behind the seat. Instructed at beginning of flight to not attempt to retrieve an item behind the seat and to have an attendant helped. No one responded to me, so I got it myself. Wasn’t a big deal, but I don’t appreciate being soundly ignored"

Pros: "The crew was superb. Extended leg room seats had a lot of legroom. Good wines, decent dinner."
Cons: "Very strict carry on policies, much strictet than US carrieers, primarily by weight. Known traveler numbers (Glibal Entry) were not askrd at the time of online check in and ad a result, TSA Pre didnt show up on out boarding passes. Agent at the counter coulsnt dix it euther. Surprisingly, very disappointing breakfast."

Cons: "As a gluten free person dinner delicious but after 5-6 next hours for breakfast I got few small slices of melon... like really?? This will not feed anyone! For next time I know that I have to bring my own food.. so bad! While servis time we ordered whisky with cola and after one hour we went to ask for one more cause we wanted and CA told us they dont serve anymore whisky only wine or beer. Besides this things when I came to plane my sit and table tray was dirty so we had to put blanket over... for the first time I write bad feedback but I have to cause it was terrible.."

Cons: "Caótica boarding Uncomfortable seats did not recline"

Pros: "Service was great, the stewardess's were very professional and very caring without being too personal which is great for me .Every was done quickly and professionally with a great sense of efficiency and purpose .Hard to explain but so different from other airlines . Multimedia was phenomenal"
Cons: "Food portions were smallish but acceptable .Seat reservation service got totally mixed up ,reserved one seat and got another .Maybe software glitch ,needs to be fixed."

Pros: "Arriving alive. Attentive service was a nice bonus."
Cons: "I am alive. Everything else seems utterly petty (even the total lack of dancing monkeys!)"

Pros: "Not a long run."
Cons: "Seats too too tight. Uncomfortably tight."

Pros: "Was a fine solid flight by Austrian."

Pros: "Everything was at the good level. Professional people to work with."
Cons: "Not enough room for overhead bags. Had to put mine in the front of the plane while I sat at the back of the plane. What I really didn't like is that I called Kayak to include my Global Entry number on my boarding pass. They said it would be there and when I printed it, it wasn't. So coming back into the states and thru customs took waaay longer than it should have with those chaotic and ridiculously long lines. I didn't bring my Global Pass card with me and will from now on!"

Cons: "They are always delayed"

Pros: "Everything OK"
Cons: "Arrived 5’ later, lost train"

Pros: "We ended up being rebooked from Austria near to Egyptian air on route to Cairo. This was the best thing that could’ve happened as Austrian air was inferior. Egyptian error on the other hand had very gracious staff, very comfortable seating, and while the food was average it was better than Austrian air"
Cons: "We ended up being rebooked from Austria near to Egyptian air on route to Cairo. This was the best thing that could’ve happened as Austrian air was inferior. Egyptian error on the other hand had very gracious staff, very comfortable seating, and while the food was average it was better than Austrian air"

Pros: "Organized orderly boarding. Food was snack only. Flight crew was pleasant and helpful."

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at the time we were suppose to board. We had to find another flight via Istanbul and got to our destination 6 hours late. Won't use Kayak again."

Pros: "Very organized airline. Friendly staff."

Cons: "I will never fly Austrian again! They disrespected my family, they did not honor my reservations, and the staff was just nasty!"

Cons: "Long transit more than 12H without free accommodation nor meals"

Pros: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"

Pros: "Even though I was very disappointed at what the Austrian airline did to me, the staff and crew and captains where professional and the flight was comfortable especially on Lufthansa. However, I missed the experience of enjoying the flight with the group of people that I joined on the way to Vienna and to Egypt."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that they cancelled my Austrian flight to a completely different company (Lufthansa). I paid extra money when I reserved the tickets in the USA to make sure I am on the same plane as the other three families that i wanted to be with as a group. They had reserved their tickets and I got the flight numbers and when I reserved my booking I paid extra to be on the same airplane as the rest of the group. My plan worked going to Vienna and to Cairo (although one of the planes were delayed 3 hours which ruined our stay in Vienna) but on the way back from Cairo to LA, I couldn't be with the group because I left 2 hours early and arrived in LA 2 hours late. I pleaded that I came with a group but they said I have a different booking so they couldn't honor keeping me on the same plane as the group. I am very disappointed and will avoid my future travel with Austrian airline"

Pros: "Drinks were included"
Cons: "No entertainment available not even to pay for. Wifi is overpriced"

Cons: "The flight from Budapest to Vienna was delayed so we missed our connection to Tel Aviv. The behavior of the ground staff who were supposed to assist us was outrageous. They behaved like a low cost company with one answer to any request, and this is the word "NO". It does not seem logical that we ever go with Austrian again. We do deserve a compensation for the delay and the behavior."

Pros: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"

Cons: "Bad ground crew luggage problems because their web payment service is not working. CS did not reply with solution"

Pros: "surprisingly tasty meal, smooth and on time flight"
Cons: "boarding in Vienna a bit chaotic , mostly caused by requirement to register passport for transatlantic flights"

Pros: "This isn't really the flight, but see below for lack of personnel at Vienna airport to help locate gates after our flight arrived very delayed. I was running with a cane, and getting very upset when an airport employee with a cart asked if he could help. He took me to the gate I thought was for my flight, but it was for a DIFFERENT flight to Zurich. He calmed me down and drove me to the correct gate, talking the agent there to make sure it was the right one before he left me there. I wish I had time to get his name because he was very kind and helpful and I don't know what I would have done without him - wouldn't have made the flight, that's for sure. (He was in vicinity of gates F 3 - 13 on Sunday June 11 approximately 5:15 - 5:30pm Vienna time, if anyone wants to know)"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed almost one hour. Even though I had only one hour between flights, I was told (in Split) that all flights would be delayed, so no worries. On the plane, they gave information for some flights; for the rest of us they just said, go to your gate (for connecting flight) as quickly as possible. Flight landed at 5:05pm. When I walked out of plane (I was using a cane; recovering from broken ankle so have some trouble walking distances), there was no board with flight info, just immigration. Finally I saw a flight board, and had 10-15 minutes walk still. Also, signage wasn't great. I called after an Austrian Airline flight attendant who was also leaving, but she never heard me. Finally I found the right direction, still had security to go through. I was running with the cane (not good for my ankle). Essentially there was no help. Until a man driiving one of those carts helped me - I write about him above in what I liked about the flight."

Cons: "Not enough snacks and no entertainment. Only an hour flight..."

Pros: "The staff should speak english and albanian from pristina to austria or from pristina to turkey its abvious they are albanians %95 of them and elderly who dont speek any other language but albanian"

Pros: "Boarding gate was fast to get into the aircraft, flight was on time. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing negative"

Pros: "The female attendants were nice."
Cons: "The male attendants, who were on my side, were not very attentive. I had a small child with me and they didn't seem to realize the challenges associated with what I was doing. Also, my child's screen would not work most of the time, even though I told the attendants."

Cons: "The delay in take-off"

Pros: "Best take off, Best Fight, Perfect Landing...!!!"
Cons: "Diner was tasty...but, no breakfast... would have been great..!!!"

Pros: "please see comments above for my previous flight excellent experience!!! I used to fly with KLM but with definitely check Austrian Airlines first for my flight needs from now on."
