As I said in my previous report it's hard to take pictures in this terminal due to glass reflections

Cabin crew9.0

Vienna - VIE


Toronto - YYZ



Overall a great flight by Austrian. Very clean and fresh cabin. Comfortable seats for economy with good legroom and seat width. Nice crew and the meal tasted good too. The IFE was great too. Unfortunately Vienna's airport was not what I expected. There is not much to do and the new pier G is too dark and plain with not much to do.

    Thank you for sharing this report!

    Vienna could definitely do with a remodeling, the place where you slept in G is looking quite retro with those weirdly shaped sofas.

    Catering looks good, but I would have expected OS to offer something a little bit more substantial for the pre-arrival meal. I know the second meal services on TATLs are continually deteriorating over the years, but offering a small salad cup and chips with the sandwich inside of a box would be better.

    As with your flight from DXB, cabin comfort looks good on the 763. There's a J-blanket in the exit row seat again ;)

    Thanks for this series, and welcome back to the frozen tundra of Canada.

      Thanks so much NGO85. Yes, I totally agree with you, the second service on most TATLs are going down. For sure a salad or chips added would make it much more appealing rather than a simple dry sandwich.

      lol, oh yes, that was so cool with the J blankets, very interesting to me. Thanks so much for the welcome too :)

    Thanks for sharing this report.

    My comments are :
    - Woow
    - I'm impressed by VIE, especially Pier G and its boarding rooms (they look very comfortable).
    - Moreover, VIE seems to have such a big traffic !
    - I like the filters you used on many pictures.
    - It's a pleasure to fly on this 767 configured in 2/3/2, more space.
    - Catering is ok, a bit light maybe.

    Is there any self snacking / bar area in galleys during the flight ?

    See you,

      Thanks so much Mathieu. Yes, Vienna pier G has very nice sleeping couches too, which is great for passengers.
      767 for sure has a very comfortable configuration and the seats were comfortable too.
      Actually I did not go to the galley. I should have gone though, I did not think of it, I wish I had gone to check it out :)
