Requested move[edit]

Airline's brand name is Austrian.--theltalpha 12:29, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose Look at what links here for Austrian and nearly everything is a link intending some association with the country not the airline. This page could become a disambiguation page though. olderwiser 13:21, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose move, obviously, although I agree that Austrian probably ought to be a disambig page (with links to Austria, Austrian German and Austrian Airlines). If this page title is still unacceptable, it could be changed to Austrian (airline), although I'd like to be sure that that is the best name. sjorford (talk) 13:57, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • I'm for Austrian (airline), it's the best choice. Austrian should redirect to Austria, and Austrian Airlines is not the correct page name any longer. Flag of Europe.svgFlag of Austria.svg ナイトスタリオン 14:02, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • I agree with the other oppose commenters. The point is not to have the "correct" name, but to have a name that's as correct as possible, and that will help people find what they're looking for. Most people know me by the name "Ted" but that doesn't mean I can have the disambiguation page Ted for a page about me. And that airline owned by United? It's page here is Ted (airline).

  • Oppose Unworkable. It would simply become the wrong page to link to the word Austrian. Best choice would be Austrian (airline). FearÉIREANNIreland-Capitals.PNG\(caint) 15:35, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE that is not the primary meaning of "Austrian" 18:08, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Okay, I understand the arguments. So if I summarize correctly the steps to be taken are:

Correct?--theltalpha 13:54, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Agreed, and support all of that, if we're voting. Flag of Europe and Austria.svg ナイトスタリオン 14:08, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
I'd also support a move to Austrian (airline), if nominator or an administrator were to close this current vote and start a new vote for a move to Austrian (airline). Marco79 17:43, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

This title is incorrect[edit]

They didn't change the official name of the airline. They just took the word "Airlines" off the livery. This is no different than every major airline in the US (American, Delta, United.) They might refer to themselves by an abbreviated name, but the word "Airlines" is still a part of the name. So this article needs to be under Austrian Airlines. - Sekicho 00:05, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

I agree with you, Sekicho, 100% on that. And besides, everybody calls it Austrian Airlines, not Austrian.Flag of Montenegro.svg CrnaGora (Talk | Contribs | E-mail) 16:26, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Then propose a move. DON'T CUT AND PASTE THE PAGE. EVER. That wrecks the page history. FearÉIREANNIreland-Capitals.PNG\(caint) 21:49, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

It dominates the market for flights to Central and Eastern Europe, NONSENSE!![edit]

The statement in the first paragraph about Austrian Airlines dominating the market for flights to Central and Eastern Europe is marked citation needed but it clearly needs to be removed. Germany is often considered Central Europe and Lufthansa clearly dominates flights to the region if Germany is included..also Russia is clearly Eastern Europe and Aeroflot operates more flights to "Eastern Europe" from outside the region than Austrian, since most of its flights land in Vienna and not what is generally called Eastern Europe. Even if the person who made the statement was only referring to the region between Germany and Russia the statement is nonsense since most of the region's countries have their own flag carriers that dominate flight in their respective countries, Malev in Hungary, LOT in Poland, etc. I removed the statement.-- 21:27, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

bad news?[edit]

Chicken or the egg came first? I read that OS wanted to end money losing Asian routes so it got rid of A340 and A330's but kept Lauda Air 767 and 777's. Archtransit 16:18, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Any Objections?[edit]

Anybody object to my adding a section on OS's travel classes? According to WP:Airlines that is an acceptable section to add. Thoughts? Neo16287 (talk) 12:48, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Fleet Size?[edit]

In the upper corner fleet size is 41 (2 on order/lease). In the detailed list below it is only 36. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:16, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Does Austrian Airlines still have plans for ordering extra 4 Boeing 777's for 2013 and 2014? Email me for any answers. Thanks. (talk) 23:13, 13 November 2012(UTC)

Is it still a Flag Carrier?[edit]

Now that Austrian Airlines is 100% owned by Lufthansa, can it still be referred to as a "flag carrier" of Austria? You've got other airlines such as Niki growing bigger all the time. Austrian Airlines is now vastly reduced compared to its former days, and a shadow of its former self. Why is the German-owned Austrian Airlines still a "national flag carrier"?--Lester 01:16, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

accidents / inaccuracy?[edit]

the bombs causing near-crash of Austrian Air and crash of Swissair plane in 1970 were transported on these very planes because of changes in flight schedules, not on purpose, they should have wrecked El-Al ones, according to reknown Swiss daily "Neue Zürcher Zeitung" (four articles, from 27. 12. 2014 to 31. 12. 2014) as well as other sources in German (aviation magazin "" e. g.) And it seems, there was a thorough investigation in Germany and Switzerland, as to who sent the parcels with the bomb, but governments of both States blocked any legal action, probably fearing further attacks, the Swiss attorney handling the incident then, Robert Akeret, says in an interview. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:22, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
