Following a five-day trip to Austria, my son and I flew back from Vienna International Airport (VIE) to London Heathrow (LHR) in economy on Austrian Airlines — flight OS455. We had sampled a serious amount of wiener schnitzel over the last few days and that was important; we had toÂ bench test Austrian’s ownÂ wiener schnitzel on the way home.
The airline’s slogan is “We fly for your smile,” and we were hoping to find lots of smiles.
We arrived at VIE and made directly forÂ Austrian’s short-haul business lounge at Gate F in Terminal 3 — courtesy of the airline. The friendlyÂ receptionist found us on her list and gave my sonÂ an Austrian branded set of aircraft Mega Trumpf (top trumps) cards – weÂ didn’t even need to fly for hisÂ first smile.
