I frequently fly from VIE to IAD and have inner European flights. The staff is always friendly, the planes are clean especially the 777 to IAD is my favorite.

I have been charged more money in my currency BAM. I file them a complain and my bank invoice in mail, and they would not admit it and refund me my money....

I fly on FlyBe's Embraer 195 to Italy frequently, and the difference with Austrian was huge. The plane was spotless, the seats comfy, the flight smooth, the snacks and drinks complimentary and very nice indeed, and the pilot/staff were professional and courteous. I've read bad reviews on Austrian but I thought they were slick, from check-in through to Landing. Excellent...

We flew Austrian Airlines flight #65 from Vienna to Chicago in mid-September. We found the service to be excellent in all respects. I wouldn't hesitate to fly this airline again in the future.

Very friendly crew - they offer both cold and hot drinks (free) to each passenger. Who does that nowadays for short flights? If you only order just water, they even ask you if I would like tea/coffee as well. That is a nice traditional service. It also comes with a pastry (breakfast time) or something salty or sweet in the...

Friendly and helpful cabin crew. Outbound flight departed and landed on time, inbound took off 20 minutes late but landed ahead of schedule. Pilot/co-pilot gave in flight information about location, altitude etc which was interesting. Good experience.

Austrian is a reliable company with a good network of desrinations, especially in eastern Europe. Service is fine but many planes maybe need new furnishing. Long haul flights offer Vienna cafè culture with a nice selection of coffees.

I travel quite often and intermittently use Austrian (its been a while since my last trip with them), Austrian Airlines is one of the carriers who can and should be proud for maintaining their high standards and quality offering. Punctuality is almost always guaranteed as well as an efficient boarding process. Seats are reasonably spaced and the service professional and...
