"comfortable in my opinion"

(Germany)

Austrian's A319/321 fleet are equipped with the same Recaro seats you find on Lufthansa and some other airlines. Although the seats are very slim, they are very comfortable in my opinion, not too hard and not too soft. The legroom is good even for tall people. As the aircraft doesn't have any entertainment screens there's no entertainment box cutting off some room under the seat in front of you. The armrest could be a bit wider and for longer flights an adjustable headrest would be nice. The seats also have only limited recline what some might find disturbing, but in my opinion it's sufficient for Inner-European flights.

"A320 fairly comfortable"

(United States)

A320 was fairly comfortable for the flight TLV-VIE, despite being almost 4 hours long. The only problem with this aircraft for me was that there was no entertainment. The food served was adequate, and the service was good. There was decent legroom, and the price was good. It was not a bad flight at all.

"seat was fairly comfortable"

(United States)

Flew the VIE-JFK flight as the second leg of a flight from TLV-JFK. The seat was fairly comfortable and the staff and food was pretty good. The IFE was not as extensive as other airlines I have taken, but that helped me get a bit of sleep on the plane as well. Legroom was not too tight, and the seat width was also not a problem. The price was good, and all things considered, it was a positive flying experience. I would have no problem flying Austrian and this plane again if given the chance.

Worst flight ever. Leg room was very limited and seat would not recline properly. Couldn't sleep a minute from BKK to VIE. We will definitely avoid this airline in the future.

These seats are great for European routes but there is no headrest but this is not too much of a problem. I found the flight comfortable.

Austrian Airlines customer review

(Austria)

My seat was at the emergency exit so plenty of leg room. But only when not too many people gathered in front of me to line up for the toilets. Seat was extremely narrow couldn't be reclined very far so the 11 hours from Bangkok to Vienna were like hell. Service: dinner was ok but no breakfast (instead only a small sandwich) no wet towels were handed out. tea comes in a paper cup cutlery is plastic IFE very good good screen but only small in-ear headphones were provided.

Austrian Airlines customer review

(Czech Republic)

Only 6ft tall I never suffered so much like on these refurbished Boeings 767. I flew from VIE-IAD I could not stretch my legs seat was hard and uncomfortable cutting into my back legs. I was sore for a week even though I had stood up every 3 hours for a stretch and walk. I complained and their reply was they refurbished the planes with new ergonomic seats for better passenger comfort. What a difference when I flew with Lufthansa last year far better comfort.

(Australia)

Will never ever use this airline. Seats are designed to torture anybody with slightly longer legs who is more than 6 feet tall. Also completely inept airport staff unwilling to even discuss this issue (so I had to suffer both ways from Bangkok to Vienna and back. Plenty of lessons to learn from Thai Airways flying the Boeing 777 from Bangkok to Melbourne with adequate leg room etc.

(United States)

Austrian has such a ridiculously inferior economy product on its long haul flights. The hard basically non-reclining seats in a stuffy worn out Boeing 767 are completely unacceptable. Flew IAD-VIE on Austrian but connected via Munich on my return flight on Lufthansa - what a difference.
