Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I didn't like that all of the shades for the windows were down for the whole flight. It's too many hours in the dark. We took off at noon and spent the entire flight in the dark. Too many hours in the dark. Then land when night time. More darkness. With flight and wait till sun rise it's like 26 hours of darkness."
Cons: "Keep doing same things"
Cons: "Should improve food."
Cons: "The forced checking of bags of anything over 7kg, in spite of size, is ridiculous. Have now been waiting for over an hour at JFK waiting for my bag when it was small enough to keep in the overhead bin. I fly internationally once a month and never have to do this. A complete waste of my time."

Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."

Pros: "Attentive crew, clean washrooms, decent chairs, great food, enough entertainment."

Cons: "Flight attendants kept on telling me to push my handbag under the seat multiple times when the bag could not go any further and yet, ignored a woman's backpack on the opposite aisle that was just plopped around her feet."

Cons: "The flight attendent did not let me move to an available seat but the next two people who asked were allowed. I was very uncomfortable and freezing the whole time."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Eva did not send an additional plane. They excepts hundreds of people to go on standby waitlists for their one flight a day option to Taipei. All of which were full flights. They did not provide food vouchers or hotel vouchers. We were told to leave the airport and come back tomorrow with no solution. We had to rush the office and force them to get us on on other airlines to finally get home. If that didn't happen we would have been stuck in the airport for 5 days."
Pros: "Eva flight was fine."
Cons: "Dealing with kayak was a nightmare. After kayak cancelling the entire flight because my husband was to sick to make his departure flight to Bali, they cancelled his return. Kayak would not release his seats so we could not rebook, Eva said they couldn't rebook until kayak released. He did have to take another airline to Bali. After 7 days they finally released seats. After talking with them approx 8 hrs. Will never use kayak again."
Pros: "Got to choose my seats next to emergency exits to have the extra leg room"
Cons: "My son & I traveled together on a trip from Manila to USA in Taipei. We had a 3 hour transit time, and waited by the gate of the flight from Taipei to USA. To exercise, I left the gate and walked around the terminal. Coming back to the gate, I could not enter because the ground stewardess blocked the entrance to the gate. I had to wait for 30 minutes until I finally was able to sneak thru the rope barrier that was placed there after the stewardess left. Then when I was confronted again, I explained my situation and this time she let me through to join my son, who was at the gate all this time."
Cons: "Always late, had been sitting in the airplane did 3 hours before even starting my 12 houra flight. My other 3 flights were also not on time..."
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "The movie selection was somewhat limited and dated"
Pros: "The seat recline in a way that doesn't really take space away from the person behind you. Your seat bottom juts forward while you recline back. I slept the whole way, save for the two meals, from London to Bangkok. A thirteen hour flight felt like two."
Cons: "Food needs a rethink."
Pros: "Attentive crew, good washrooms, comfy but still an airplane."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Entertainment needs to be updated."
Cons: "The passenger who sat next to me had disgusting, stinky breath for the entire flight. Had nothing to do with the airline. Lol."
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Boarding, comfort of seat"
Pros: "It was like flying in a Four Seasons but better."
Cons: "Boring movie selections. 80% Marvel films."
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Pros: "Very courteous, friendly, professional flight crew and gate crew."
Cons: "Nothing to mention...very pleased"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."

Cons: "The aircraft delayed taking off from Doha to Dallas"
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Pros: "Plenty legroom with Qatar. Food good."
Cons: "Everything good as usual"
Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."
Cons: "TV unit didn’t work, lucky me. They tried two times to restart and reboot but to no avail. The attendant said my choices were to not watch or move to an empty seat. I chose to sit next to my wife."
Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."
Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."
Pros: "I think that my review and comments about the first portion of the flight apply equally to the second portion of the flight. Despite my criticism of the food, the flight attendant service was above expectations."
Cons: "The food. Hire a chef that knows how to make the food palatable."
Pros: "comfortable seats, pretty good food, extremely gracious cabin crew."
Cons: "Lactose-free breakfast option was fish... I get that some people like fish for breakfast, but to me it was a little nauseating. Just ate around it and was fine though. Overhead air vents could be improved. felt a little plane-sick toward the end of the flight."
Pros: "The trip was very comfortable and food suited me"
Pros: "Customer service and food."
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Behavior of the crews"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."
Cons: "Boarding process, Smart Phone App, food quality, Announcemebts, Time to unboard the plane, flight information displays at Doha are not easy to find the flight info"
Cons: "Everything ok"
Cons: "Unfortunately WiFi services was off"
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "Would be very happy to fly again on qatar if options for Indian food menu is increased"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Pros: "Excellent flight , seats, food"
Pros: "I am always glad to see a working USB port for charging mobile devices on these 12+ hour flights and was not disappointed here. The list of movies was long. Also positive was the tallest headrest I have experienced in coach."
Cons: "The seat are thinly padded and felt close together, making the already long flight feel even more fatiguing."
Pros: "I truly love this Airlines. The crew is always friendly. The food is always above par for airplane food"
Cons: "Few selection of food."
Pros: "A new Dreamliner. Nice! Very good service. Gate personnel were very accommodating. Nice smooth flight. Doha airport was nice and mostly empty. Mediocre selection of restaurants."
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "Quality food and hospitality"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "As always the space"
Cons: "- Airline changed flight and offered little forewarning for what was a material change (from 1 hour transit time to 9 hours) - Boarding process was inordinately slow with little attempt to move this along quickly - Service was halting at best"
Pros: "Good crew. Nice plane and amenities."
Cons: "Flight to was canceled due to engine issues. Flight home was canceled due to scheduling error. Issue resolved at check in, but caused stress."
Pros: "Over all service was excellent!"
Cons: "Short transfer time made it a bit stressful"
Cons: "Seriously, the service of Qatar Airways was horrendous in Uganda. Ridiculous. Could NOT give a worse review. Would 100% NOY recommend this airline. EVER."
Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."
Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."
Cons: "Cramped seating on long flight. Headrest not adjustable."
Pros: "Was able to switch to an open row dubai to jfk. Nice crew..good food..veggie choices."
Cons: "Jfk-mia..held for gate 1 hr.."
Cons: "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "For economy, maybe more variety on meals ?"
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time, movies."
Cons: "Softer seats. Better food. Seat parents with their screaming babies and children in the back of the plabe!!!"
Pros: "crew was super attentive, seat was very comfortable, but a few of the buttons did not work properly."
Cons: "Some of the fixtures were falling off, and the side controller for the TV screen was not connected or working. It is to be expected from an Older A 380, but not a deal breaker by any means"
Pros: "Seat was fine for size of plane and comfortable for a night flight. Food was flavoursome and nice."
Cons: "Had a problem with the two socket headphone Jack as it was not seating correctly so only got sound out of one ear mostly"
Cons: "Not to delay the flight for 2 hours !"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "I’m glad the connection time was short and reached the destination in good time."
Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Crew are not polite and carry arrogance while talking to the passengers, especially in the economy cabin. The seats are narrow compared to other 777 300 ER flights"
Pros: "I had a trouble because of crazy guy who sat behind of my seat. But crews didn't try to solve that problem actively. So, I will complaint about the attitudes of crews tomorrow morning."
Cons: "Crews attitude for the problems because of crazy guy of the flight. That was very passive responce. I was very embarrassed and frustrated. Why didn't the crews control and solve that kinds of problem? I don't understand. The crazy guy hits my seat about 4 to 5 times strongly."
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "I was specifically asked for the vegetarian food n mentioned that I am highly allergic to the eggs....in spite of that no vegetarian food was served till I asked the staff about my food...i was told that there is no vegetarian food for me....n at last I was served with very basic food .....not at all good...i could not eat that n stayed hungry n could not even sleep due to headache n acidity This FOOD experience was extremely Disappointing"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Cramped, terrible food."
Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."
Cons: "Staff don’t smile! I ask for hot towel the crew didn’t give me any!"
Pros: "Excellent. All the staff were great and helpful."
Cons: "I forgot to ask them to put to add my quantas points for the flight home and an worries I can’t noe but need to try and do that tomorrow. There was no where to add them when I booked the flights."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "The food far too spicy and was unable to eat it!! Sat by someone who should have had two seats instead of one. Thus a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "We wheelchair passengers were also asked to stand in line for boarding at the gate"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
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."
Pros: "Delayed by 3 hours!!"
Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"
Cons: "Bed, breakfast"
Pros: "Safety video was cool. Even in Arabic! The amenities were lovely — headphones, entertainment choices, bag with toothbrush, slippersox, etc. They elevated economy well above (the usual) steerage."
Cons: "Not having options beyond the menu; it wasn't clear where to ask for a vegetarian meal. The battle of carry-on v. coat storage is unseemly."
Pros: "Facilities excellent. Staff not quite so attentive on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."
Cons: "Not having an aisle seat made it very difficult for my handicapped husband to get in and out of his seat. We had to wait for our neighbors to step out of their seat and take advantage to do the same. Felt very claustrophobic. Service was not good, we rang the bell several times to get some help and no one came to our assistance and we gave up after that. The crew told us they had run out of some juices that we would have liked."
Pros: "Good Flight."
Cons: "They changed the seats without asking."
Cons: "Despite booking wheelchair assistance throughout, my parents did not get that benefit."
Cons: "Staff unfriendly on Baghdad flights most of the time"
Pros: "Fantastic flight from start to finish lax to dubai. I was offered upgrade to business class from economy for $1000 USD which was well worth the cost as the 15 1/2 flight can be tough in economy. The a380 is smooth, much more quiet and is pressurized to lower altitude than most planes so you do get off feeling more refreshed. Service and food were good and the inflight entertainment is first class with hundreds of movies on demand."
Cons: "Took 50min after deboarding for luggage to arrive at baggage claim but I'm told that's not the usual and emirates staff were there to apologize and let us know of the unusual delay."
Pros: "Staff excelant.restrooms very clean Food was great.landing on time"
Cons: "I had 8 hrs.lay over I dubai.need more comfortable chairs in lounge.night stuff was short help.to help wheelchsi traveller's .no major complaint.will fly emirates again."

Pros: "The service was excellent. Plane comfort make the flight a pleasent one and less tiring."

Pros: "Good service and good food"
Pros: "Compared to other airlines, especially trips to and from Europe, this one was great! I will try to fly Emirates every time! I especially appreciated the variety and abundance of choices for entertainment. Eight hours just flew."
Cons: "As far as a reasonably priced economy flight, I can't think of a think. Of course, I'd always like a bigger seat but even those were better than most."
Pros: "Easy booking, seat availability, massive music library."
Cons: "Could not get comfortable and (while it doesn't reflect on the airline) all the screaming children I could have done without"
Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."
Pros: "Big screen"
Cons: "I and my friend booked together but we had to sit separate. All round trip. What the hell?"
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "I would like to be upgraded to first class. :)"
Cons: "Occasionally, stewardess would hit me while walking through the aisles. It became extremely annoying."
Cons: "Staff was amazing"
Pros: "I was so worried about missing my connecting flight but I got express immigration checkin it was a great gesture, didn't expect it from Emirates"

Cons: "The food because of coronavirus the service was scaled back"
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "All fine."
Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg. We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"
Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."
Pros: "As above"
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."
Pros: "Good crew. Clean"
Cons: "A little late"
Pros: "The food and the staff are excellent. 90% of the time I can get an exit row seat as I am 6 foot 2. I fly Turkish airlines frequently. This time the plane was full, so I understand that it was not possible."
Cons: "A passenger and his wife were not seated together, so the passenger wanted to stand in the isle and talk to his wife over the top of me for significant portions of the fight. In a full flight keeping passengers out of the isle os key. I know this was a difficult flight for the crew."
Pros: "Quick flight, friendly crew. It was nice that food was provided on such a short flight (though international, so it makes sense), and it wasn't bad."
Cons: "Flight was delayed on the runway, no real announcements about the delay were made."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."
Pros: "Flight cancelled on whim of pilot due to a single faulty toilet."
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."
Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Pros: "On time departure and landing"
Cons: "My mother was not provided with wheelchair at the Istanbul airport"
Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."
Pros: "It went all ok except the space between rows"
Cons: "Slow service by crew and space between seats"
Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Efficient and pleasant. Affordable and most importantly very clean!"
Cons: "Old style lie flat (but not horizontal) seats"
Cons: "No space"

Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."
Pros: "Old school service and amenities"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Lack of air conditioning made it hard to breathe coupled with cramp seating made it unbearable"
Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."
Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."
Cons: "Not enough room between rows. Can't recline seat if table behind is open."
Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"
Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."
Cons: "There were issues with the entertainment system. It had to be restarted by the crew a number of times and lots of people didn't have fully functioning entertainment for the flight."
Cons: "The plane left late I almost lost my next plane to Los Angeles a good thing the next plane was late so I make it"
Pros: "Good attitude of aircrew"
Cons: "There was heavy rain in Instanbul and our luggage was not covered. Half my clothing was soaked when I received it in Erbil. No rain in Erbil or Frankfurt, so I know who is to blame. Turkish Airlines in Instanbul. No way are they the best in Eurpoe..."
Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."
Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"
Pros: "surpassed our expectation"
Pros: "great company."
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Pros: "Clean, orginzed, professional pilots"
Cons: "Too hot, few meal options"
Pros: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "Comfort mostly"
Pros: "Very smooth boarding on both flights, a smooth transfer between flights, and comfortable seats (especially nice flexible headrest on longhaul flight). Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't important anyway."
Pros: "Everything was excellent . I was very happy with this flight.Thank you so much."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants,"
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: "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: "Clean and new planes. On time."
Cons: "On the transatlantic flight the crew was unattractive and somewhat rude. They skipped our entire row serving morning refreshments and then complained and tried to shame us all for calling them back. Food quality was on par with Alegent Airlines. We even got charged for one piece of checked luggage 46lb on a international flight. That was a first!!!"
Pros: "Timely departure and pleasant staff on board"
Cons: "It was cold during the flight,"
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."
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was great. Lovely and efficient crew. Sound not good on films but we were in economy so maybe just the disposable earbuds. A small point and didn’t spoil an otherwise great service."
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: "Friendly staff, on time flight. Nice refreshments"
Pros: "I watched three good movies during the flight to London. I enjoyed them."
Cons: "Nothing particular."
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: "The crew was very very nice and flight was very quick."
Cons: "No entertainment at all, music nor tv :/"
Pros: "flight was fast and we came into a gate instead of having to come into terminal by bus. Left on time an arrive early"
Cons: "nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "The cabin was clean and comfortable. The crew was efficient and friendly. We departed early and arrived early and the entertainment was just what I wanted."
Cons: "Nothing - it was a great flight"
Pros: "Hi there, the gate for the flight was changed at the last minute and I missed the connecting flight from Frankfurt to Vienna. I was told by staff that there would be a 300 Euro fee, plus the cost of the next flight. This broke my heart. why I wouldn't I simply be put on standby and get on the next flight? I ended up travelling by to Vienna by train, over the course of the next several days. I am a lone woman with a developmental disability, travelling to Europe for the first time. It was very disappointing to be treated this way. Thanks for reading."
Cons: "I should have been put on the next connecting flight, rather than turned away to fend for myself in a foreign city."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food and the boarding at Vienna airport"
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: "Service was great and the flight on time."
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"
Cons: "I did my fligh because I was in the hospital I have send a mail to kayak and to the agent I have booked the flight with No one got back to me yet!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and competent"
Cons: "Food was way too salty. That needs to be addressed by airlines. Not a healthy or palatable experience."
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 coffee was excellent. It was like something from a fancy coffee shop, not a plane"
Cons: "Chicken w mashed potatoes plus potato salad? Too much potato in the dinner meal"
Pros: "The service on board was fantastic. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "We were stuck on the ground at London for what seems like ages."
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."
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: "Easy travel nice plane."
Cons: "Not enough leg room for long flight."
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: "Crew was somewhat attentive. Requested Kosher food that was adequate"
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."
Pros: "Flight wasn't overcrowded Attendants were very nice Entertainment system was very good (new screens with easy interface, broad selection of movies and TV shows)"
Cons: "Food and beverages could have been a bit more frequent. One lunch and a small sandwich over a 9 hour flight, I felt hungry at some point"
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."
