Made a lot of customers check in their bags at the gate. But the cabin space was half empty and all luggage would have fit. Doesn’t make sense.
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline all. I felt like a sardine. Seat cushion the most uncomfortable that I have ever experienced."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and took great care of us. The food was surprisingly good and our seats were comfortable. It was worth upgrading to Premium for the extra legroom and other little perks."
Cons: "I really can’t think of a bad part...the customer service at check in was so easy; our checked bags were automatically transferred in Calgary, the crew was very friendly, food was good as was the wine and beer."
Cons: "Can't rate this because I missed my connecting flight from LAX to SJC due to a Westjet mechanical issue."
Pros: "We arrived where we wanted to go"
Cons: "Separated my son and I into middle seats. Made us sit on the tarmac for 30 minutes due a completely predictable issue. We should have been allowed to stay at the gate. Seating is horribly cramped. Less that friendly flight attendants. Arrived late on a red eye in perfect weather. Otherwise delightfu"
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat space was a bit tight"
Cons: "Little more space and leg room"
Pros: "Excellent airplane, the Dreamliner is amazing with great leg room (I'm 6' 1") comfortable seats and head rest, great lighting and an extensive entertainment system! Crew was efficient."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Cardboard packages that contained tasteless meals."
Pros: "Efficient and fast boarding and getting things ready"
Cons: "Seating is horrible. Not just the space but the cushion-or lack of"
Cons: "Issue handling for delay"
Pros: "I received great service and the flights were on time."
Pros: "Good legroom compared to other carriers"
Cons: "Almost 1 hour late leaving. No westjet connect, so no entertainment."
Pros: "Food vouchers in Calgary for the 6 hour flight delay due to WesJet computer issues on Toronto plane. $100 credit Bag pick up Minmico at WS Care Centre tried hard to arrange a seat on an earlier flight due to my inquiry; let me call home twice on her phone to advise husband of flight changes. She tried to organize my bag to be put on the earlier flight at the last minute although she was unsuccessful."
Cons: "Passengers are crammed into small seats."
Pros: "Most of the crew were nice. Captain very informative."
Cons: "It was freezing! The headphones they rented me didn’t work, or maybe it was the tablet—could barely hear the movie."
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. Good leg room."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours. There was a change in gates and aircraft. The gate was too small for the amount of people boarding. Families were separated due to the change of aircraft. Few updates of the situation while waiting."
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus - it was great."
Cons: "Too bad we have to pay extra for Plus to get a reasonable amount of room."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful."
Cons: "There was no westjet connect on the flight. Which is fine for a short flight, except that before west jet got rid of their TVs this flight had entertainment."
Cons: "unfair airport taxes...we really get screwed by our government"
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Was boarding at C70 but only saw signs for 71 and C73. Asked Westjet staff where we were boarding and they told me (and others) that even though we were booked to take off from C70 we’d be departing from the gate labeled C73 and also labeled for a flight to Regina. Still got to Hamilton though."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and funny"
Cons: "Everything was up to my standard"
Cons: "It did not happen. Being transfered to air canada in Toronto was a night mare"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "We were not sitting together...we are both seniors and my husband has only flown 2 before....our seats were booked together and I am assuming due to our flight cancelled on Jan 8 and rescheduled on the 9th that could be why. No room to stretch your legs, for those of us who have circulation problems...."
Pros: "The wifi inflight service"
Cons: "No food, only snacks."
Pros: "Fast friendly service. Aircraft was clean and in great condition."
Cons: "No entertainment, not even power for your own electronics."
Cons: "The chairs were in bad condition and the airline was delayed which made me nearly miss my next flight."
Pros: "The plane was less busy so many people had an empty seat next to them. It was great for leg room and I slept the whole flight!"
Pros: "The flight and crew were great, great flight. Arrived earlier then stated. I still enjoy flying in and out of Hamilton. Great airport. If I can book West jet again, I will, great airline. Took some great pictures from the aircraft. Thank you !!!!"
Cons: "Security, too much, even when we arrived, customs twice."
Pros: "I like that I got the plus seat for no extra charge."
Pros: "Main stewardess was very pleasant. Not full flight so I moved back and had a seat to myself."
Cons: "Late boarding and then late departure After landing, baggage delayed as well"
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Multiple delays totalling up to 2.5 hours but only updated 15 minutes as it reached the time of take off. Minimal heads up prior"
Pros: "Comfortable seat with lots of leg room"
Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."
Pros: "I flew through the air in a metal container across the country in the time it would have taken me to drive 400 km, so that's pretty neat."
Cons: "Provide complimentary movies West Jet. Parading around tablets to rent for $6 is a bad look."
Pros: "The crew and staff were great on the plane. Could use more staff at the checked bags area but overall good experience"
Cons: "More agents at the check in desk"
Cons: "How there was no boarding call and we missed our flight."
Cons: "I was able to download the WestJet Connect app on my phone which gives you access to tv shows and movies to watch on your own device during the flight. The app was free and easy to use and there was a decent selection. However, the wifi on board is not free so even though you could watch the tv show/movie - the sound did not work unless you paid for it. There are many other airlines that offers everything for free - it would have been a more pleasant if we were able to actually utilize the service."
Cons: "Good Choice of movies to watch on my tablet, but sound was really bad, worse than when i play my music from my tablet on the same earphones"
Pros: "Great crew, West jet connect worked fabulously"
Cons: "Cramped space and airplane food"
Pros: "We got some extra help in the airport :). Thanx"
Pros: "Smoot boarding on time leaving earlier they were we supposed to be everything will be smooth"
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"
Cons: "We were delayed ... was supposed to take off at 7:30 didn't take off until 9 .. I've sat on this plane longer than I was in the air"
Pros: "The crew was nice, however, they also give varying information. We had frequent flier tickets and when I checked in, the screen stated no extra charge for check in bags and I also called the customer service. When I got to the airport in Hamburg, they wanted to charge me $100 for a bag. I asked the lady behind the counter to call the main office because she said she has no authority to change the fee. I called the main office and had the person in office tell the agent at the airport that it is a mistake and that there is no charge."
Cons: "Better communication between all aspects of the company."
Pros: "Love the 757 fleet of Icelandair. Professional crew."
Cons: "Every flight was late and no effort to do anything about it. Flying in the mid 400’s turned a 1hr 40min layover into a run for the connection. Far be it to use more fuel to deliver on your schedule. I’ve been on too many flights where the pilot found the gas pedal to make up for things on the ground to not think this is Icelandair policy and therefore will have a good chance of happening to me again with them."
Cons: "Warm bus for the transfer from one plane to the next"
Pros: "The cabin crew were all attentive and pleasant. The media offerings are excellent, and I was entertained throughout the flight."
Cons: "The seat bottom felt flat and hard fairly early in the flight."
Pros: "The plane was on time and very clean"
Cons: "Nowhere in the fair information supplied by kayak that you would have to pay for both food and bags. I would never have selected this fare had I known we would end up spending an extra $800 for checking bags! Iceland air is clean and efficient but all you were given is a Dixie cup size of a drink"
Pros: "Washroom was very clean."
Cons: "It was really cold in the plane. Crew was not friendly. Only drinks were served. Crew forgot to let me in earlier (preboarding) no English subtitles or captions!"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and accommodating. The plane was a brand new Boeing 767 with comfortable seats."
Cons: "More movie options."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "They layover was by far the worst."
Pros: "Crew had good attitude"
Cons: "Cold, late"
Pros: "I was able to get from Iceland to Toronto, so essentially they were able to fly the plane."
Cons: "I have been flying many different airlines for many years and have a decade plus of travel experience, so this negative review is something I’ve hardly ever done as some background. We left over an hour late to start off with. They took 1.5 hours to offload our luggage. Avoid at all costs."
Pros: "The crew always friendly"
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Long walk in Toronto airport to leave"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Boarding in Kevlavik."
Pros: "the time went really fast"
Cons: "somewhere on the itinerary clearly that food is not included in the ticket"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful. Plane was new and very clean. Had a new plane from Iceland to Boston which was very clean."
Cons: "Seats could have been a bit more comfortable but were better in way home since it was a new plane. Space under middle seats is not great but luckily had window seats for flight home. Middle row upper storage is very limited. Almost had to check my bags on flights to Iceland and Germany."
Cons: "Provide food on an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "Same as other comment"
Cons: "Same as other comment"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, good cabin climate, good selection of movies to watch. Although there was a delay in boarding, we did still leave on time."
Cons: "Slow, delayed boarding, with bus to the plane and stair walk up."
Pros: "More direct route to destination."
Cons: "No food served and excessive luggage fees."
Pros: "the crew , the flight was smooth, on time , easy to board"
Cons: "that after a flight to frankfurt and no problem wthj my luggage on board when we left frankfurt to go back to boston it was all of a sudden a problem with my onboard case , which was not handled very well , they were nice but i felt singled out and worried about my luggage being left behind , but it all went smooth after all"
Pros: "The plane and crew are great!"
Cons: "A bit disorganized with boarding is my only complaint."
Pros: "cleanliness and attitude of the crew were aweomse"
Cons: "video screen should include games to pass the time"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great and smooth fight"
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour, another hour to get luggage... main problem, however, was that once i was at FRA airport, the added a $105 surcharge on my luggage because supposedly it was an "economy light" ticket that doesn't allow checked luggage. It wasn't on the way over and it doesn't say anywhere on the ticket. To make things worse, none of the people at the counter were actually Iceland Air employee, so noone was able or willing to tell me anything about this (quote from employee "everything I tell you will be used against me" not sure if she was flippant or scared) Anyway, watch out for them screwing you over where they can"
Pros: "Iceland had been a pleasure the last few times I flew internationally - consistently one time, friendly staff and quick layovers, never once over the last 8-12 flights experienced a delay or maintenance issues. Really impressive !!"
Cons: "A light snack or bag of crackers or so would be a nice touch for the grown ups. kids her a jmnup meal, adults can only buy them. I realize the fares are cheap but I feel some light snack options could be added."
Pros: "The staff is very friendly on board and the overall flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding in Reykjavik was slow and very congested."
Pros: "Leg room and service. Entertainment system is excellent!"
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "After you accepting the fact that any food on this international flight must be purchase, the rest was comfortable and efficiently maintained."
Cons: "KEF is terrible. The food concessions have unbearably long lines at the checkout. The possibly only toilet is is down a flight of steps and the lines are long. I will pay more in the future to avoid KEF. The Frankfurt airport waiting areas, both outside the gate area and inside, had totally inadequate device charging outlets."
Cons: "They wouldn't help with rescheduling or refunding. They said they could charge me over twice what the ticket cost to change it. Not helpful or sympathetic at all. Sometimes it's nice to be human with human emotions."
Pros: "Efficent crew and flight on time"
Cons: "It's my understanding that Iceland Air has WOW! airlines as their budget entry. However, Iceland Air has no free food/snacks for a flight that is 6 hours long. So what more do they take away from the customer for the WOW flights? They should at least offer snacks on a flight/airline that is not advertised or priced as a budget flight"
Pros: "This was our first flight with Iceland Air and we kind of looked forward to it. On the way oversease we were immediately rebooked onto Swiss Air, before arriving at the airport, because Iceland Air had a delay and knew we would miss our connecting flight to Germany. We were very impressed by this and very happy with Swiss Air, also. On the way back we liked the roomier plane and the relative punctuality of the flights. Our luggage arrived fine and quickly at the end destination, despite the short layover, which often leads to lost luggage."
Cons: "Our biggest complaint is that Iceland Air does not offer meals as part of your ticket on its flights. They expect you to upgrade (and pay) for 'economy comfort' in order to get the meals and seating included in most other regular economy tickets. I don't think that being on a 6.5 hour flight (and a 3.5 hour flight immediately before without chance of making puchases at the airport in between, due to their delay) without a meal being included in your ticket is acceptable practice. They had a meny from which you could purchase food, things like baguette with ham/cheese, salad, oatmeal, instant noodles etc. But the prices for these cheap cafeteria options were insane. From the cheapest ($7 for a small instant oatmeal) to $16 for a salad or small main course you would have to spend an additional 25-35$ per meal per person to get the usual airplane meal that all other airlines I know of include (2 per overseas flight). We did go hungry, eat candy, bought one little oatmeal and pretty much will avoid Iceland Air for that reason in the future. We thought it was outreageous to be asked to spend this amount of money or go without food for over 9 hours."
Pros: "The plane was large and spacious. Crew members were very nice and pleasant."
Cons: "No complimentary snack"
Pros: "Legroom is quite good"
Cons: "Baggage drop-off badly indicated (or was not available?) in Reykjavik, so we had to wait a long line with people who did not do their check-in at the automated counters. Not efficient at all."
Pros: "The on flight movies were nice."
Cons: "Both flights were overbooked, there was only one person in line for checking bags, which we stood for over an hour in and barely had time to make it to our flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the leg room. There is also enough room to comfortably walk down the aisle between seats. I appreciated the little bottle of water handed out as I entered the aircraft. The crew was quite friendly."
Cons: "Icelandair apparently has no schedule they stick to. We were consistently late leaving the airport, making us miss EVERY connection. I was not aware this was a no frills flight, meaning exactly that! No food or snacks, even for overnight flights. They charged $10 for a small, cold sandwich IF you preordered. Other than the water given upon entry, drinks were doled out sparingly, just a tiny cup per passenger."
Pros: "Good crew, plenty of leg room"
Cons: "One of the few airlines that does not provide a meal without extra charge"
Pros: "Comfortable nice entertainment system. Great price (but no food)."
Cons: "Terminal 2. Has few amenities while waiting."
Pros: "Fast service onboard. so many flight attendants!!"
Cons: "Some menu items weren't carried on this flight. Oh yeah - as I peep at reviews below - Reykjavik airport is super chaotic around departure gates. Probably wasn't built to accommodate the masses and endless international connections. The backlog of travelers is likely caused by another carrier who is known for delayed departures and arrivals."
Pros: "From checking to arrival my experience was bad bad"
Cons: "Only Internet from Frankfurt to Iceland"
Pros: "The bottles of water, friendly staff, entertainment selections, and the aurora borealis lighting."
Cons: "A little crammed seating in economy."
Cons: "I understand that businesses must expand, and that is no different with the Keflavik airport. In routing passengers through the airport, there were listings for Canada/UK, and US/All Passengers. It was unclear whether this signage was meant for "flights" or "passport." It was actually for "flights" meaning, if you are taking a flight to Canada, use this line; for US flights, use that line. However, many people, myself included, mistakenly assumed that the signage was meant for passports, in other words, US passport holders use this line; Canada/UK passport holders, use that line."
Pros: "Customer service was amazing. Always smiling and making sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable flight"
Cons: "Lost my luggage on my arrival to Germany. It was however delivered to my place of stay two days later which was fast!"
Pros: "Courteous stewards on board."
Cons: "This was a 5 hour international flight. The only food offered for free was a glass of juice or tea/coffee. I've never had this happen on an international flight!"
Cons: "No food. Just 70 min to change the plane. 5 aircrafts to samé time to USA (NYC JFK, Newark, Boston, Minneapolis,...) Too much people - not good organized"
Cons: "Really a surprisingly low quality airline."
Cons: "Keflavik Airport, where all transfers are done, is a MESS. There are too few jetways, so you wind up waiting for a BUS to take you to the terminal in the COLD. Once through immigration, you are dumped directly in to the DUTY FREE SHOP that you can NOT avoid. Imagine being late for your next flight, and having to steer your carry on baggage around crowded store isles! Then, you manage to find your gate...which is an effort in itself, as there are few signs...and there is ONE agent checking boarding passes of this massive crowd that is not lined up at ALL. Once in the air, Iceland Air performs well. But on the ground, it is nothing less than a MESS."
Pros: "Nice crew, great service"
Pros: "Everything was great. Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No food provided. Not even pretzels. You have to buy it and it is not reasonable. No water fountains at the airport."
Pros: "I love the beautiful interior lighting, the more spacious seating, and the free in-flight entertainment! Icelandair also has a separate area off Frankfurt international which was much cleaner and nicer."
Cons: "No potable water in the Frankfurt terminal."
On a 9 hr flight the entertainment kept having issues and not working for most of the flight. The food was worse than usual. It was a pretty awful flight.
Cons: "A good team. They all made good efforts. Just fine"
Cons: "Business class food is a disgrace. On the way to Lisbon they had at least some warm meal, skipped now and just got a box with bad, cold food. The crew was apologetic."
Pros: "Nothing, Air Portugal is the worst I have ever experienced. Never fly Air Portugal, you have been warned."
Cons: "A different airline"
Cons: "It was delayed on our way to destination. Also wish it was a direct flight to ponta delgado instead of going through lisbon. It was too much back and forth."
Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Nasty people"
Pros: "The lady checking me in was nice"
Cons: "Items were stolen from my bag"
Pros: "Tap was great for the long flight"
Pros: "We upgraded to first class and everything was perfect!!"
Cons: "My wife and I paid for a better seat, (online) but when we boarded they told us that was impossible. They kept our money !!!"
Pros: "Nice seat (I paid €48 euro for more legroom) and the food was decent and the movie selection good."
Cons: "TAP's boarding procedure is a bit of a mess. We had to wait an extended period of time to board and no information was given. Also keep in mind you have to pay extra for luggage, which is a real deal-breaker when traveling for extended periods of time."
Cons: "Watch out for the extra fees and restrictions. We booked a flight knowing that we weren’t allowed a free carryon. We didn’t know the cost for one checked bag was $120!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent as per all my flights with Tap Portugal. The crew was outstanding, the plane was clean, food was tasty and overall a very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "The boarding area was too cramped and tight."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster that took an extra 30 min"
Cons: "Organizing the boarding. The food was a disaster and the seats was a joke, the most uncomfortable plane I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "No complaints. Good flight. And we were surprised to get a snack pack on such a short trip."
Pros: "A good airline- I will use them again!"
Pros: "On this prop plane, the takeoff and landing was exceptionally smooth. Again, the crew gave outstanding service."
Cons: "All was perfect! Thank you."
Pros: "The crew was generously serving me and the price was more reasonable than any other."
Cons: "I had a huge passenger next to me who took most of my space the whole time during the flight and ended up hurting my neck and back. I understand it had nothing to do with the crew, but not comfortable at all. Besides, there was no entertainment and even outlet available."
Pros: "Clean plane, nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Cons: "I had to pay to check the first piece of luggage 85€ one way. I was not inform of that when I bough the ticket and I could have chosen a different airline If I had considered that expense. The first piece used to be free intercontinental flights but now it varies depending on the company. I find difficult to find this information when buying and it makes a great difference in the final price you pay. I found strange flight attendants having a very loud conversation in a very quiet flight where most of the people were sleeping."
Cons: "TAP Airlines stranded us in Lisbon. They were late flying us from Vienna to Lisbon and then canceled our seats on our connection to JFK. Instead, they rebooked us on the next day's flight a full 24 hours after, refusing to rebook us on earlier flights on other carriers. Their customer service was as bad as I've ever experienced. Multiple agents admitted their company is terrible and doesn't care about its customers. The indifference to our situation was surreal. Lesson learned."
Cons: "We could not reserve a gluten free meal to accommodate allergies."
Pros: "I liked that the airline provided blankets pillows and headsets at no extra cost for our 8 hour flight. The crew were very nice and accommodating. The food was good."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay 75 Euro for one checked bag. That should Have been more clearly set out when booking a flight. The entertainment could have been better. Poor reception for some shows."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs with foot support., friendly staff, good food and choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Good service, nice meal."
Cons: "No USB ports or movie choices. Entertainment screen very small."
Cons: "Had to check 2 of our luggages, and it cost $95 per piece. Never flown an airline where I had to pay more than $50 per piece. Also carryon has to be less than 8 kg. Our small luggage that we had to check never had any problems with any other airlines about being a carryon but since it was over 8 kg, it had to be checked. Flight was short but no entertainment screen to watch or listen to music. Will not be flying with airline ever again."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The 2 hour turned 3 hour delay. Lack of organizational during check in. Had to show our documents 4 times within 10 meters."
Pros: "They broke my bag, it took them over 3 months to answer my complaint and then they said that the Manufacturer would take care of it. On top of that they made me pay to check on my bag for each flight, including connections, and they didn’t even reimburse that"
Pros: "Professional and courteous crew from check in the disembarking. Excellent on board food."
Cons: "Entertainment system was wonky throughout most of the seven hour flight."
Cons: "No air conditioning. Lots of apps didn’t work on the entertainment device."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "The customer service I received was horrible horrible horrible especially from the check in counter the were very rude . After booking my flight on kayak I called TAP customer service just to make sure that everything was fine .I asked them about luggage they said I had 2 free and a carry on when I got to the airport said I had to pay for the 2 i said no told them that i called TAP they didn't wanna hear it i asked for the manager she I am the manager and you bought a discounted ticket and there's no luggage with this ticket only acarry on in a mean way if you want the you have to pay $90 for each I tried to call TAP can't get through them when they finally got through them the guy confirmed that I ve called it on the records but it said now it's too late to do anything I am already at the airport that I have to pay and contact them later. I wasted good hour and a half on this and I had to pay $180. After all that at the boarding gate they announced that they will call by zone .they called especial need called frequent flyers zone A never called zone B all they said last minute was this is the final call for flight #.... and I was right in front of them and guess who were the people making the announcement yep the same people at the check in counter"
Pros: "I love flying TAP because I love having extended layovers in Lisbon. Lisbon itself, including the airport, is easy to navigate. The food is great and the culture and architecture is gorgeous. For shorter trips TAP doesn't have as many amenities as other airlines, but on this trip the typical video screens with movies, music, etc. was available."
Cons: "In this particular flight there was a male airline attendant who was fabulous and who could speak many languages, including German. I noticed the other airline attendants seemed to be giving him a really hard time and weren't friendly at all. In fact, I rang a bell to ask for attendant help at one point and no one came to help. I was just a seat back from the area where the helpful airline attendant was available. I think that overall TAP flight staff could be a bit more open to being friendly. However, on the ground in Lisbon I've found the staff to be amazingly helpful."
Cons: "Don't like their bagage fees"
Cons: "Me and my girlfriend were seated in the middle in a 4 seat combination. I asked the crew member to move us on an aisle seat. Even though there were plenty of aisle seats open, the crew member just kinda ignored us. The old lady sitting next to me just slept the whole time and I could not get out to the bathroom. Also since I am left handed I could not really eat since with the right-handed old lady we were hitting each other's elbow and nocking each the food out of each other's hand, I finally pulled my elbow in and ate like a T-Rex. The person in front of me pushed their seat back all the way, I asked the crew member to do something but nothing really was done, since I am a little taller I could not fit my knees, they were crushed."
Pros: "The head stewardess was so helpful and nice! I was traveling alone with a 3-month-old baby and was very stressed out. The head stewardess helped me so much, gave me a more comfortable seat, a private place to breastfeed and a bassinet for the baby! She was amazing and I owe her so much for making my experience better. I also received a baby gift package that had a much needed pacifier clip! The flight was also the smoothest flight I've ever had across the Atlantic!"
Cons: "No movie was shown on the shared TV in the first row. Had to only listen to music. Long stressful wait to board."
Pros: "None of the videos about Portugal worked!!"
Pros: "The personnal was amazing. They all treated me excellently. I would definitely fly again on this airline with this crew."
Pros: "I got to London"
Cons: "9 hour delay"
Cons: "Tha total absence of hard alcoholic beverages, no moderate cocktails"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 7 month old so boarding was made easy by the crew. Most of the crew were quite pleasant during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system hand piece failed so you were unable to select channels, turn the over head light off or ever call for assistance. We had to get another passenger to do that for us. Ultimately the light bulb had to be removed from the fixture. During the flight, we asked for more refreshments and were told we could only have water by a flight attendant. Upon arrival at our destination with a child in hand, our stroller was not unloaded at the gate so we had to carry our child and all that travels with him to the baggage area. For anyone travelling internationally, you will know this is generally quite a distant from the gate in major airports. The strollers and car seats arrived in baggage 30 minutes after the main luggage. When staff were approached they were short and appeared very disinterested in helping. TAP failed on this flight home."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the flight hours."
Pros: "Hot food and real utensils Good entertaining selection Very nice staff"
Cons: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Their short flight from Frankfurt to Lisbon was not that comfortable. Seats were thin, close together. My knees were jammed against the seat in front of me. Glad the international flight was more comfortable. Somehow we did not get the memo that there was a 0 baggage allowance for an international flight. Most give 1 or two bags free. So when we had to pay 80 euros for each bag it started off our trip with TAP a lot disappointed. We still have to fly back and we can go online and pay before hand and get it for 45 euros each. Increased out ticket prices by 205 euros. Will make me take a second thought before I book with TAP again."
Cons: "The service was below average, nobody seems to be eager to assist. The food that was offered on the flight was below expectations. The company should work on improving customer care"
Pros: "Well done...when other airlines offer nothing!"
Cons: "Slight delay in boarding... but arrived on time"
Pros: "I did like the crew and food were great!"
Cons: "I am very unhappy as I paid extra for my seat selection and did not get a window seat. I will be following up about my complaint"
Pros: "It was all ok"
Cons: "I took 3 TAP flights while in Europe, and they were always late!"

Pros: "Love the pods."
Cons: "Food not quite as good as the trip out. Steak was over done."
Pros: "The trip was a smooth and on time."
Cons: "The lack of finesse and discretion among the crew. The food quality was poor."
Cons: "Missed this connection due to flight delay (see above)"
Pros: "In flight attendance was excellent and we were nearly overfed with plenty of drinks, snacks and meals. It was nice to see both young and elderly ladies as air hostess. This is a strong statement in non discrimination on Account of age in employment. To see a red Indian lady among them was very refreshing."
Cons: "Dimming of the windows was not user friendly and we had to put up with bright reflected lights from clouds. On ground both in Calgary and Vancouver the wheel chair attendance was not at the same level as in Frankfurt where it had been given with paramedic competence."
Pros: "only The crew inside the airplane and the airoplane"
Cons: "Every one in Lufthansa are so rude expect the crew"

Cons: "Food was not good"

Pros: "Movie selection was great! Thank you for having a vegetarian food option."
Pros: "I can't fault Air Canada Cabin crew - they are absolutely wonderful. I had a situation with a woman who decided she wanted to take my window seat and the cabin crew was amazing with how they handled the situation. They are always so friendly, attentive."
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfurt airport was God Awful. The supervisor there was so rude to people, treating us all like cattle. The boarding process was unorganized, confusing, we were getting conflicting instructions from staff and then verbally abused by the supervisor there."
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "THE FOOD SELECTION WAS GREAT."
Cons: "I WAS TOLD THE FLIGHT WAS FULL AND I OVERHEARD THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS BRIEFING THE PARENTS SAYING THERE WAS 17 INFANTS ON THIS FLIGHT. I THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD TO HAVE ALL THE PARENTS WITH INFANTS/BABIES TO SIT IN A SECTION DESIGNATED FOR THEM TO ACCOMMODATE THEIR NEEDS AS A FAMILY. IT DOESNT MAKE FOR A PLEASANT FLIGHT WITH BABIES CLIMBING ALL OVER THE SEATS. I GET THATS IT DIFFICULT TO TRAVEL WITH BABIES AND KEEP THEM ENTERTAINED WHICH IS WHY ITS BETTER TO BE AROUND OTHER PARENTS IN THE SAME SITUATION. THEY CAN SUPPORT EACH OTHER."
Pros: "the service was great"

They need to be educated some of the Indians can be law abiding and decent people who Can be citiEns of Europe or the US Their thinkng is very racial or prehistoric Only reason I didn't make a scene of it is because I was jet lagged Be careful next time or just don't give me a ticket !!"

Cons: "The dinner wrap was not great. The tea was undrinkable. Delay due to de-icing."
Cons: "I was unable to get a seat at check-in. The flight was overbooked and I had to spend 2 hours arguing with the attendant to get a seat. The attendant finally started arguing with me. Very unprofessional and unacceptable service..."
Pros: "I arrived safely!"
Cons: "This was an AIR CANADA operated flight. Considerably less comfortable than the 3 LH operated legs of my recent trip to Kenya."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a disorganized and took over an hour. There was a mix of people getting their passports checked and boarding. They never called for general boarding, just eventually started accepting people who got impatient. The entertainment options were the worst I've seen on an international flight in a while."
Cons: "AirCanada did not tell me that I needed a transit visa for Canada. So I couldn't board the flight. They also refused to reroute me or refund the ticket. They were not sympathetic or helpful."

Pros: "Excellent service throughout the flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and considerate. Food was satisfactory and timed appropriately. Entertainment device worked and offered adequate variety. The aircraft itself was clean and comfortable. It was not overly air-conditioned as aircraft tend to be."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and confusing: verbal instructions conflicted with posted signs, and it was hard to choose the right lines. Arrival in Canada was a nightmare! Customs and security were confusing, inefficient, and staffed by people who had little patience. There was much yelling and running around., there appeared to be little sympathy or concern for the dozens of passengers who were attempting to make connecting flights, and it was ridiculous to announce that security closed at 9p.m. .when there were planes on the runway awaiting connecting passengers and people with boarding passes who were not allowed to catch their flights."
Pros: "Staff were very nice"
Cons: "2 out of 4 of my meals were incorrect. I had asked for vegan meals and 2 of them were clearly not vegan."
Pros: "Nice and professional crew."
Cons: "Customer service not very helpful. My luggage did not make connecting flight and was late arriving to destination. There was not any sense of urgency in getting my luggage to me quickly. I had to call several times for results. I did not have my luggage for more than 24 hours and nothing was done to compensate me in having to purchase basic necessities such as hygienic items."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and helpful!"
Cons: "This was the last leg of a 24 hour journey from Venice to Seattle for my sister and me. After having a 3 1/2 hour layover, our plane was supposed to leave at 6:30 PM and kept getting delayed. One of the biggest frustrations was the lack of communication by the staff! We could see them at the counter where our gate was but no one would come out and talk to us! Our plane finally got off the ground at 8:30 PM!"
Cons: "No good movies or music"

Pros: "Nice crew,moving all the time, food was good."
Cons: "A little bit colder than I expected."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "frankfort to Toronto was Lufthansa. Excellent."
Pros: "Great choice of movies. Crew came around on a regular basis with water and juice, plus 2 meals and a snack. The Crew was very professional and kind."
Cons: "They didnt board by area or rows for ecomon it was a mess on the plane with people from different sections trying to find overhead bin space and get by each other in the aisle. When the person in front of me tilted her seat it was inches from my face, not a good feeling. The leg room was adequate. The Boeing 737 is a nice aircraft."
Pros: "My 1st flight w/Air Canada. Everything ran smoothly. I did not use the entertainment."
Cons: "If you what to reserve your seat you pay....in an intercontinental fly is unacceptable! I prefer air France, Alitalia, delta, that offered best services wit out ostracized charge costs."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Food was bad."
Cons: "I didn't get opportunity to upgrade to economy plus or confirm aisle seat ."
