Very poor crew work. No snacks not even chips or pretzel. Even for purchase.For breakfast muffins while all stewards eating omlets. Thank God we brought our own snack. Flight 9 hours with very very limited food availability. Austin airlines shame on you and your upper management.
This was a really great overseas flight. The crew was very nice and attentive, the seat was comfortable (more than some planes) and the entertainment was pretty good. The flights left on-time, as well. There was no wifi on the plane which would’ve been helpful, especially if you are a business traveler.
Plussat: "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."
Miinukset: "Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't important anyway."
Plussat: "Will never purchase tickets through kayak ever again"
Plussat: "Nothing. I will never put her tickets from From here again."
Plussat: "The crew was great!"
Miinukset: "I don't like the movie options. Some are quite sexual and can be seen around the plane."
Miinukset: "Not a lot of legroom in my Premium Economy seat (10C). Seat itself just OK, the high price isn't justified. This flight is usually about one hour late and it was."
Miinukset: "Was unable to take the trip. Unable to rebook without excessive fees. Lost $2000."
Plussat: "That we landed in the end"
Miinukset: "More communication to passengers when there are so big delays (almost 2 hours)"
Plussat: "Space, happy vibes, clean"
Miinukset: "Nothing it was super"
Miinukset: "Inside the plane everything was great and the floght atendants were very nice, however in check in I was teated very poorly"
Plussat: "Absolutely nothing. Despite booking business class flights 3 months before departure date because we had to attend a very important wedding. Swiss Airlines overbooked the flight but didn’t warn us in advance. This meant my husband was forced to pay over 8 thousand Euros to charter a small private je"
Miinukset: "So That we could attend the wedding early the next morning in Oldenburg. They then had the audacity to void our return flights. Luckily I spoke with a lovely lady at Lufthansa, explained the situation and she re-instated return flights for an admin fee. Will never ever use Swiss Airlines again."
Plussat: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Miinukset: "Delayed boarding, crew very friendly, polite"
Plussat: "The boarding process was short and quick. Entertainment choices were excellent."
Miinukset: "I was hoping for a more traditional Austrian meal but the food was just fine."
Plussat: "On time take off"
Miinukset: "They serve non-halal food with Muslim menu. They think hat non-pork meat means halal/zabihah. Non friendly flight crew"
Plussat: "Seats more comfortable."
Miinukset: "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."
Plussat: "Overall it was a good trip and staff was helpful."
Plussat: "The Swiss Air staff provided water and nice sandwiches for us while we stood in line for hours and put us up in a very nice hotel for the night."
Miinukset: "My first flight with Austrain Airlines was 2 hours late in leaving, partly because they mixed our baggage up and had to have each of us leave the airplane to identify our baggage before getting back on again. Because of this, I missed my connecting flight in Zurich. Apparently hundreds of other passengers were in a similar situation, because I spent the next 6.5 hours standing in line to getting my new itinerary and hotel vouchers."
Miinukset: "more than one hour delay, crew didn't arrange anything for passengers who had to catch a connecting flight in a short time. And according to other passengers, Austrian's flights are always late for at least 30-45 minutes since recent years."
Plussat: "Flight attendants were friendly, courteous and helpful"
Miinukset: "Always an issue getting in/out of planes at Frankfurt. It takes a long, crowded bus ride to the terminal."
Plussat: "Crew was wonderful and spoke English They brought drinks. Seats were very nice and plane seemed new and very clean They handed out card decks to the kids."
Plussat: "Had 45 Min to connect at vienna airport and our first flight was delayed so we had to run to get in time to the gate. Literally the gate was on the opposite side of the airport. Bad logistics"
Miinukset: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough."
Miinukset: "Missed the connection because the flights were booked too closely together. Then had to wait 7 hours in the airport for the next flight. It only takes 4 hours to drive there but I don’t have a car."
Plussat: "all good."
Miinukset: "austrian airlines female flight attendants have to wear ALL red. it seems a bit much."
Plussat: "Staff were always courteous."
Plussat: "Austrian Airlines does it right— service, food, cleanliness. This was a really terrific experience. They even boarded efficiently, having those with seats in the back board first."
Miinukset: "This was a great flying experience."
Plussat: "I liked the crew on the flight."
Miinukset: "I was frustrated with the staff at the desk in the airport, as we boarded 20miutes late and they did not feel it necessary to give any comment on the situation. Everyone was puzzled as to why we were not boarding, or if there was a problem. Even the screens did not show any change."
Plussat: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Miinukset: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"
Plussat: "Crew was very friendly. In-flight food service on such a short flight with choice of a sweet or salty snack was much appreciated."
Miinukset: "Seat backs were rock solid without use of a personal pillow."
Miinukset: "No food terrible idea to serve orange, oll dos nasty hands Stick to a site"
Plussat: "Short flight"
Miinukset: "I have to pay for food or drink"
Plussat: "lento oli ajallaan ja pieni syötävä sekä juonatarjoilu olivat riittävät. Iloinen ja avulias henkilökunta."
Plussat: "The pilots are very skilled and keeps you informed about every single “bump” during the flight. Flight attendents are very nice, pleasant, polite and helpful."
Plussat: "On time boarding in Vienna and lending in Chicago."
Miinukset: "Not enough food for a long flight (only one poor meal was served during the entire flight)."
Miinukset: "I was at the back of the plane with the constant cold air breeze, it was impossible to avoid!. I caught heavy cold and still recovering!"
Plussat: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Miinukset: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Miinukset: "The gate of flight was changed 2 times in short period, that's why i lost my plane. No possibility if rebooking the flight, only buying a new ticket for 700€. Crazy!"
Miinukset: "The aircraft was very old and smelled badly. The toillets didn't work properly and were dirty."
Miinukset: "economy class eats sold as business class !!! very poor and cheap strategy --"
Miinukset: "Behavior of AA"
Plussat: "Everything was great! The staff was friendly and really tried to make our experience the best it can be!"
Miinukset: "The only thing I didn't like was that in one of the bathrooms, the sink was clogged up a little bit."
Plussat: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time"
Miinukset: "No entertainment, plane seemed a bit old as it made weird noises at certain altitudes"
Miinukset: "The ground crew harassed us for bringing our instruments on board. We fly with instruments for our work and this was the first time we were forced to check certain items and were detained for a period of time so that the ground crew could check with their superiors."
Plussat: "I was pleased by the comfort of the seats, the staff on board and the flight itself. The flight actually did not seem at all like 9 hours. And it arrived exactly on time."
Miinukset: "The crew at the airport before boarding was a little impolite. As people were getting ready to board and waiting in the line, they were told to go back to customer service to register passports and get new boarding passes, without prior announcement. That could have been avoided if they informed us."
Miinukset: "Not a lot of legroom and they should have provided an additional snack during the flight. Did not like that in order to select a seat prior to the check in period I had to pay for the selection."
Plussat: "bording, take off, landing were on time excellent service on board crew was professional, present, smiling, creating feeling of comfort would definitely fly again with Austrian and recommend the airline to my friends and family"
Miinukset: "On my way to Bulgaria, I flew to Varna and would have liked to have a return flight from Varna, that makes the connection for Chicago"
Plussat: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Flight attendants were fantastic. Seemed to always be smiling. Came through just enough to check in. Very pleasant trip -- seats were comfortable especially for a nearly 9 hour flight!
Flight didn’t happen; it was cancelled. Chatdeal not taking responsibility to refund, even though they have my money.
Coming through chicago is a nightmare. Customs are rude, everyone shouting, disorganized lines and horrible signage. Ticketing was horrible, rude agents, rude TSA, etc, etc.
Plussat: "I've flown SAS a few times and have always been favorably impressed with the service. On this flight we booked the "bare bones" fare and paid extra for checked bags and extra-legroom seats. The overall cost was still better than most other airlines."
Plussat: "Kummatkin lennot olivat ajallaan ja kaikki onnistui sujuvasti ja nopeasti. Ekalla lennolla ( HEL - > ARN ) henkilökunta oli huippu!!"
Miinukset: "The check in staff at the gate could have been more friendly and paid better attention to customer care. I was standing in front of the counter with a simple Question but had to wait 5 minutes before the two agents got done with their own personal chat and thought about attending to me."
Miinukset: "The airplane crew was rude. They could have been more nicer regarding food. My mother is diabetic and I asked the lady to get her a small sandwich or something so she can take her meds and plus her sugar levels where getting low. And the lady on her side was really rude and said NO."
Plussat: "Safe polite crew"
Miinukset: "No entertainment options on plane. Possibly due to 737maxs being taken out of service."
Plussat: "The attendants were constantly providing services to the passengers."
Plussat: "Professional and courteous crew"
Miinukset: "Nothing, was a pleasant flight"
Plussat: "The movie section and food were very good"
Miinukset: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Miinukset: "Uncomfortable seats."
Miinukset: "From Helsinki to Stockholm I missed my flight because we boarded late. Once in Stockholm I had to take two different planes for my destination and in result loosing time"
Plussat: "Flight was on time. Bathrooms were clean."
Miinukset: "Dinner and breakfast were terrible, especially for a long transatlantic flight. Attendants were curt. Movie selection was subpar compared to other airlines on similar flights I’ve taken."
Miinukset: "Flight delayed and we sat on tarmac for 2 hours"
Plussat: "Most everything"
Miinukset: "I'd like to be able to get seats together as a family before getting to the gate...I had to ask for switches both outbound and inbound, which they were nice enough to make."
Plussat: "No comment since very short flight."
Miinukset: "My husband was unable to check in on line. SAS when contacted by phone which was difficult to do because it is hard to locate their number had no explanation other than maybe due to security. We missed a tour due to the time spent (unsuccessfully) trying to solve this problem."
Plussat: "One crew member was particularly nice and personable."
Miinukset: "We waited an hour in the plane before take-off and after boarding, during which time the crew deliberately filled the cabin icecold air thick with the highly toxic fumes from the deicing. I got a headache from it. Throughout the process the entertainment units were disabled, when they could have helped distract passengers from this ordeal. The food was disgusting. When the Danish government has repatedly bailed out SAS, it would make a lot more sense for everyone involved to have higher quality Danish products on board for the meals, especially for such things as dairy products."
Plussat: "Flight was on time. Boarding was simple and easy. Staff were excellent in handling the boarding process and very prompt in getting people seated/luggage put in to overhead lockers, free tea and coffee was provided which assured that extra comfort, would definitely recommend."
Miinukset: "Not enough characters to express my disappointment."
Miinukset: "Expensive checked baggage. More than 2 hours delayed."
Plussat: "Everything about the flight was fine. Boarding, flying and retrieving luggage were all standard and went smoothly."
Miinukset: "I was upset that neither Kayak nor SAS provided any information about our ticket being a basic, basic ticket, by which I mean, did not include any checked luggage allowance in the price of the flight. I ended up paying 140 additional Euros for two bags. It appears that SAS's pricing is gaming the system when searching for flights or that Kayak is not being up-front about the type of fare they are advertising."
Miinukset: "SAS charged me 70 Euros for a small 14 KG carryon luggage. It should have been free. Even Ryan air only charged 35$ for a checked bag. This was ridiculous and service was poor."
Miinukset: "Cheap airline, entertainment system failure, paying for soft drinks?????? Food was an absolute disaster on one flight and no food service at all on the second flight. Abysmal service on both legs. Call for further details."
Plussat: "The flight was comfortable and the onboard crew were very nice."
Miinukset: "Since the flight was delayed taking off, the layover in Stockholm was very short. The airline did nothing to rush those of us through or contact our connecting SAS flights, and a few of us missed our connections by just a few minutes because of it. SAS did provide alternate tickets for me, but I arrived at my destination several hours late and the whole situation could have been avoided pretty easily."
Plussat: "Quick flight"
Miinukset: "1 hour delays and 70 euro bag fee"
Plussat: "Flight attendants kind and helpful. Boarding from both sides of the aircraft made it easier to get situated."
Miinukset: "Full Flight was very hot and cramped. not sure if the AC was broken, but no effort was made to cool the cabin despite my requests. This made for a very sweaty, uncomfortable flight"
Plussat: "Great service, on time departures and arrivals. Two meals on the trans Atlantic portion of our trip."
Plussat: "Flights on time"
Miinukset: "The flight to Sweden was very very bumpy. Lots of turbulence very scary"
Miinukset: "70euro baggage fee at counter check in while flying on SAS. The same fee is 13 Euro if is bag selected at the time of ticket booking. kayak never gave me the option."
Plussat: "The plane was full and coming out of a very busy airport but the crew managed to make a good and stress-free atmosphere"
Plussat: "The flight was good : excellent pilot and crew. Good takeoff and landing. Short but sweet flight."
Miinukset: "Leg room is a nit short for tall people. Everything else was great."
Plussat: "The cabin is new and the crew is professional and nice"
Miinukset: "Food needs much improvement, it's the same menu as last year. They charge a fee for booking desired seats where they didn't have last year. Entertainment can have more recent movies."
Plussat: "Short flight, friendly crew."
Plussat: "The flight was comfortable. Boarding was fast and easy. Flight crew was attentive and friendly. I would 100% fly with SAS again."
Miinukset: "Our checked bag was delayed for a very long time. It came out 15 minutes after our baggage carrousel claimed all the bags from our flight were completed. My wife was obviously extremely concerned and it started our honeymoon off on a more stressful note than it had to be."
Miinukset: "Crew not friendly. One was very rude"
Plussat: "Everything was good"
Miinukset: "Everything was good"
Plussat: "they let us sleep, keeping the light and announcements off during most of the flight"
Miinukset: "staff at the gate kept changing my seat without my consent. i had reserved a seat online and they ended up seating me aomewhere else."
Plussat: "There was sufficient entertainment and food"
Miinukset: "Shamelessly disorganized at all departures, the staff was rude, very rude on land and in flight. I will not fly SAS again. I rather pay more."
Plussat: "One of the best we've experienced--very comfortable very spacious seats , The crew is very attentive and accommodating. We were fed three times and was offered beverages frequently."
Plussat: "Much roomier than united"
Miinukset: "Check in took two hours! Gmhad to wait in line to "check" our bag and then wait in another to "pay" for our checked bag and get boarding passes. Very inefficient."
Plussat: "I requested a gluten free meal and was happy with it."
Miinukset: "leg room was a bit tight"
Miinukset: "We were delayed before boarding, then delayed again upon landing. Hence, we missed our connection and had to fly to Copenhagen and not arrive in Helsinki until after midnight."
Plussat: "Overall, the flight was good. As always, I like SAS's service. Crew are friendly and accommodating."
Miinukset: "When waiting to board the flight, it was difficult to understand when different parts of the plane were boarding because of the soft volume of the loud speakers. All people could really hear was "boarding now", which created a bit of a rush of everyone. It would be helpful if there were an SAS representative to stand next to the line, to physically say to people, 'Okay, we are now only doing priority boarding. If you are priority boarding, please stand her. After that, if you are business class, please stand here. Everyone else, please wait, but know that we will start to board from the back of the plane. Thank you." This will to help guide people BEFORE the ticket check."
Plussat: "It was impossible to contact with sas, so we had to pay for another fligt with Norway air. Wr found a fliht only a day after so we also had to pay almost 450€for the hotel. Now we try to contsct sas to get all the money we lost. Can you help? I gess that if we booked a flight by avent he would take care of all this expences. Chava"
Plussat: "Overall the flight was ok."
Miinukset: "Each time I fly SAS, it seems that a service that was free must now be paid for."
Very expensive flight,not foods,not WiFi,nothing at all,very rude staff
Lähtö oli reilun tunnin myöhässä, syytä myöhästymiseen ei kerrottu. Muuten kaikki oli oikein hyvin.
Need reclining seats to help sleep as not much else to do :)
Meal should be included in the price and seats
Plussat: "Flight was on time. Crew handled a dispute between two passengers effectivley and professionally."
Miinukset: "They wanted to charge me for water in Euros, though the flight left from Istanbul and I only had Turkish lira with me. So we tried credit card, but credit card machine didn't work on any of my three cards. So they kindly brought me a free cup of water after all."
Plussat: "Seats were comfortable, crew courteous"
Miinukset: "Good value for money"
Plussat: "We landed without crashing"
Miinukset: "The check in process, the upgrade process, the boarding process. And, everyone just sat where they wanted, even after I paid for the upgraded seat. The crew could not care less, and I ended up with the largest person on the plane next to me, who seat jumped, so I had to sit sideways the whole fly."
Plussat: "Was the Crew very rude"
Plussat: "The price"
Plussat: "The flight was very uncomfortable and dirty"
Miinukset: "I went to ataturk airport be mistake then I went directly to sabiha airport before the flight 45 min they gegusos stuff did not allow me to get in the plane!!!"
Miinukset: "If it was on time. Over an hour late."
Plussat: "We arrived very early to make the check in, however the guy was so bad and umpolite. Talking in bad way and aggressive like he had a bad day. Worse part when we realize that he gave to me and my family the worse place in the airplane (last line) even we arrived early and the airplane had availabilt"
Miinukset: "We arrived very early to make the check in, however the guy was so bad and umpolite. Talking in bad way and aggressive like he had a bad day. Worse part when we realize that he gave to me and my family the worse place in the airplane (last line) even we arrived very early and the airplane had ava"
Plussat: "Friendly staff. Comfortable plane"
Miinukset: "Delayed but only 15 min"
Plussat: "Comfortable flight"
Miinukset: "No food"
Miinukset: "On my flight, passengers were rude to the extent that a fist fight broke out and cursing amongst everyone occurred."
Plussat: "The tickets were relatively inexpensive."
Miinukset: "However, for comparably-priced flights within the United States, we would have been given a snack and two beverage services on a four hour flight. This was international (turkey to spain) and we weren't given anything. We couldn't even get water without paying for it. Definitely one of the worst flights I've ever taken."
Plussat: "Cheap price"
Miinukset: "Uncomfortable seats. Race car type no recline, no food included, overnight flight yet lights on board remained fully illuminated."
Plussat: "The seats and the food we prepaid were quite good. The staff at the airport were very kind."
Miinukset: "The flight was delayed more than 1 hour. The gate lounge didn’t had enough chairs for all the passengers. They had any entertainment on board and they make you turn off your mobile phone for take off and landing even if you have airplane mode."
Plussat: "Flight was on time"
Miinukset: "Too much waiting for boarding and staff was not friendly"
Plussat: "Cheap ticket"
Miinukset: "Worst airline ever, no water or juice even when one of the passengers had diabetes and needed sugar."
Plussat: "Nothing , It was veri terrible"
Miinukset: "The boarding pass , they opened my baggage like 3 times and start making chaos in it and ruin many things inside it , plus it always delayed in time"
Miinukset: "I was unable to cancel the flight. I was on a work trip followed by a vacation, the vacation got cut short and I had to cancel the flight, unfortunately there was no way to cancel online and due to the nature of my job I cannot make phone calls to the states. I was not expecting a refund just an easy way to cancel the ticket online."
Plussat: "I like to travel always travel with KAKA"
Miinukset: "Extremely cramped, non-reclining seats, no pocket in seats, not even a glass of water, no entertainment options of any kind, checked-in suitcase arrived damaged."
Plussat: "Checked in online with a carry on luggage, no waitşng in lines. Flight was on time and landed on time. Crew was nice."
Miinukset: "The space between the seats could have been a bit roomier."
Plussat: "Professional crew paying fit"
Miinukset: "Paying for drinks"
Miinukset: "Checkin takes à long time"
Plussat: "The flight was delayed, presumably due to weather conditions"
Plussat: "An early landing made my onward journey so much easier."
Plussat: "We did an error in booking the return date, & found no point of contact to change the date"
Plussat: "The seats are comfortable and there was enough place in the overhead bins"
Miinukset: "The airport in Istanbul does not offer WiFi - which is unbelievable for 2017...."
Plussat: "Absolutely nothing"
Miinukset: "Bad customer support, unwillingness to correct an error in the first name appearing on one of the tickets. This forced us to cancel all 5 tickets and purchase tickets for a different airline at 4 times the cost."
Plussat: "The crew at the airport was incompetant. The service was appalling. I had to wait for over 30 minutes for bag drop off . I was very dissapointed. Also boarding was quite late and pushy"
Miinukset: "Problem communicating with counter crew who spoke none to little of English and probably because of me complainig about that they might have decided not to send one of my baggages. I finally retrieved it in different airport in three days."
Plussat: "quick boarding at Sabiha Airport. At the airport, the free Wi-Fi connection didn't worked."
Miinukset: "This experience was absolutely horrible for my wife and myself both. We understood that being among the more "budget friendly" airlines, we would have to sacrifice some comfort. But this airline is beyond atrocious to say the least. There is no terminal exit, but rather we had to walk down steps from the plane, walk in the rain to a stand-up bus, and ride it to the airport. How on earth are you supposed to make close connecting flights with those conditions? We barely made it only because they let us skip the line for security. Save yourself the misery; dig deeper in your pocket for a better airline."
Plussat: "it's fine. It gets you from point A to point B."
Miinukset: "It's almost outrageous that they don't give water."
Miinukset: "The way of talking to the passengers."
Plussat: "Roomy, comfortable seating. Clean and modern."
Plussat: "Staff was super friendly and efficient."
Miinukset: "The smallest leg room I have ever experienced! Flight was 30 min late, with no explanation...but we had a long layover so didn't really care."
Plussat: "Seating is comfortable enough with sufficient leg space."
Miinukset: "As there is no entertainment nor food served on board the grade has to be the minimum score. Precisely that there is no entertainment system."
Plussat: "Nothing in particular"
Miinukset: "Payment options suck! Did not know ahead of time that nothing is offered free of charge!"
Miinukset: "We wait 1.5 hour....no good air conditional....no water and no juice"
