What To Expect On OS Long Haul

Sun Mar 12, 2006 7:08 pm

I am due to fly economy on OS 330-200 VIE-PVG and OS 767-300 PEK-VIE in march-april. I have Silver status on SK if that makes any kind of difference.

Can I expect OS to honor the seat allocations (ordinary window seat - as exit-seats were unavailable) chosen at time of booking, or do they like LH ignore them at check-in?

I know OS charges for drinks/meals on their short haul flights, is that also the case on long haul?

Generally what is OS onboard service like compared to say LH? (I know it is economy so I don't expect much)

On the way back I have connection with no much time to spare - though above MCT, what is the ontime preformance like on the PEK-VIE sector?

On related matter: IS therea viewing platform at VIE, as I have some time between flights - ie. between arriving from CPH going to PVG.

Onerall, OS has decent service on the long haul svce. Dont worry, Drinks are free and the A330's are quite nice. PTV, is not too bad, but it is not quite AVOD. Each wing will have its own jet engine and winglet in most cases. The leg room is not the greatest when the seat in front is in full recline, but some aircraft do have seats with adjustable lower back support, which still doesnt help your crushed knees. On check-in, you can ask for exit row seating, but you should arrive early. You can also call OS the day before and try to change the seats. The B767 is a former Lauda air, and depending on the config, it can still have the old charter config, which is a bit tight. Should have PTVs also, but a little on the old side.
Hope this elps,
Tom

Quoting TomFoolery (Reply 1):

I don't care about the winglet - but two engines I would definately prefer!  Wink

Thanks for answer Tom.
