Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The agent worked hard to find us another flight to rome"
Cons: "Our plane sat on turnac in Toronto waiting for a parking gate for 30minutes making us miss our connecting flight. Finally arrived but missed our train to Florence had to stay Saturday night in Rome while our villa in Lucca sat empty which was paid for"
Pros: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"
Pros: "Got the exit row (great)!"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed but retrieving the bags took a long time. Short flight but food wasn’t appealing and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The plane was extra comfortable . The Lufthanza is it exceptional airline very nice people better than most American Airlines"
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Cons: "Never made it"
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Pros: "The crew was great. It was only a short flight, so we only got a c0okie, but what a cookie!! Big and soft and super tasty. And the coffee was quite good. Germany has never been known for its superb coffee, but this coffee was very good. None of that fakey airline taste to it at all. Could easily be the gourmet coffee you'd serve at home. You DO serve gourmet coffee at home, right? And water and juice and then more water and more juice, all served up by very nice people--not just good service personnel, good people. Baggage pickup was quick and smooth--I travel with my cat, so pickup can be rocky. Nothing to it here."
Cons: "I liked everything, so am leaving this box completely blank. Completely, I tell you!! Stop reading this!!"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and generous"
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Pros: "Very pleasant experience: comfortable airplane and helpful crew, timely departure/arrival, continuing support with information about baggage after arrival."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Pros: "This was our first time flying with Lufthansa and it was our favorite airline so far!! The flight attendants are why our experience was so great, they are so kind and helpful"
Pros: "I flew economy. Good plane, ok food, frequent meals, good coffee, free beers and wine, best flight crew I've ever had."
Cons: "economy: The chairs were ok but I've had better ones."
Pros: "They were average in terms of comfort and crew. You can only get so conofortable in economy class and the crew did what they were expected to. I did feel that my empty meal tray was left on my table for quite some time though."
Cons: "We had no individual entertainment on the flight, only very old CRT screens hanging from the ceiling, circa 1995. They did show movies but the sound quality was poor and my headphone jack did not work so I had to share with my husband. They offered no explanation for this, since their website clearly promises individual screens for international flights. When asked, the FA simply said "this isn't our usual plane for these types of flights." However, we had the same issue when flying to Frankfurt with them, so the company seems to just be lying. The food can barely pass as food. Everything was ice cold except the main dinner entree, even the bread. The only vegetable available throughout our 8+ hour flight was shredded carrots absolutely swimming in mayonnaise. The boarding process was exceedingly slow and they would not allow use of cell phones for boarding passes, although their check in provides the attachments. This required probably 1/4 of those boarding to have to step aside to another line for a paper copy. Again, no apologies or explanations from the company. Overall, I wish I had shopped around a bit more and chosen another airline. International flying is supposed to be somewhat enjoyable, even in economy class. Instead, this was the longest 8+ hours of my life."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was flown through Air Canada, so this review doesn't reflect on other hosts. However the flight was the worst service I've ever had on an airline in every category."
Pros: "Entertainment system, food. Crew was great."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and artival to YYZ"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "The snacks were nice."
Cons: "We were delayed over 30 minutes and we did not get an update until like 20 minutes of sitting in the gate, which made me almost miss my connecting flight to New York. I also think that in the Barcelona airport there should be just a line to drop off the luggage since there is a self check out machine. It doesn't make sense to do the self check out and still get on the regular check out line to drop off the luggage."
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "The crew was professional and cordial. For some reason the entire AV system needed to be rebooted which required at least 15 minutes."
Cons: "There was supposed to be a meal and a snack on this flight. There was a good meal but the "snack" was a pack of pretzels. I think Lufthansa's partner AC could do a little better. I think the drinks cart should precede the food cart. I did not receive my drink until 3/4 of the way through my meal."
Pros: "Staff were fantastic!"
Cons: "No entertainment system for a 10 hour flight! Found out once we were in the boarding area via an announcement to download the Air Canada app to use their wifi entertainment. Or rent an iPad. Not cool! The elderly lady beside us didn't even own a phone. That's a long flight! And all my records indicated Lufthansa (run by AC) flight. So strange. No wonder people are not AC fans. Understandable to say the least."
Cons: "Not enough leg room I am 6ft 3 tall"
Cons: "Gate distances were too far away and passport control in Munich is not organized"
Pros: "The price was good and connections were well-timed. Lufthansa had great food and service. A glass of pear brandy after dinner? Yes, please! I've seen a few other negative reviews for Lufthansa, but I've always had great experiences with them. The crew and food are top-notch."
Cons: "We had two legs on Lufthansa and the third was Air Canada. Lufthansa was great; great service, great food. But on Air Canada there was no food on a 5-hr international flight, the video screen didn't work well, and the flight attendant was having a rough day. And we took off at least 30 minutes late due to a couple of technical issues."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Cons: "Systems were down. And it was chaos getting the boarding passes. Nothing was communicated to us until over an hour waiting in line. My daughter was miserable waiting as everyone passed by us, bumping into her and not apologizing."
Pros: "Though our flight was cancelled due to inclement weather in Boston, I cannot say enough about the ticketing agent at the Luftansa desk. she was so incredibly helpful in rearranging our flights to get us where we needed to be as soon as possible. She spent so much time with us and on the phone and was very patient."
Pros: "That there was a flight from Toronto to Minneapolis."
Cons: "It was really cramped and small. The gate was far away from everything and cold."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "The service is good."
Cons: "Noises obnoxious passengers drinking standing up in the isles for long periods. Hanging on other passenger's seats. Very rude and clearly didn't care. Flight attendent tried to get them to sit and hold it down but it had little effect. They were part of a larger group so they wanted the flight to be a social event."
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "Me ubicaron en el último asiento y no se podía reclinar."
Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"
Cons: "The airplane left Barcelona late and arrived in Frankfurt late. Lufthansa only allowed a 45 minute layover in Frankfurt to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. Because we arrived late - we only had 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. What made this an awful experience is that the flight from Barcelona landed at Gate A - our connecting flight was at Gate Z. This was as about as far away from each gate as you could get. This was over a mile to run in order to catch our connecting flight - I hurt my hamstring during the run. The Lufthansa "assisting agent" in the Frankfurt terminal was less than helpful and laughed when we told her where our connecting gate was. Not only did she laugh but she did not offer any assistance to get us to the gate on time. Prior to our trip - I called Lufthansa and voiced my concern that a 45 minute layover for an international flight was not a lot of time for us to make a connecting flight. The agent I spoke with said that legally - 45 minutes was a standard lay over for Lufthansa and she did not offer me any alternatives. This was not a pleasant experience with Lufthansa and I doubt we will fly with you again."
Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."
Pros: "Nothing horrible experience"
Cons: "Staff in Los Angeles, service non existent in Greece no entertainment for 11 hours no tablets available"
Cons: "My tv did not work all way from M to T,complain 3 times, was promised to reset tv. Never get it."
Pros: "The crew did really well in serving everyone. They were polite, helpful and on the go from the time we boarded until the time we landed."
Cons: "The greatest issue I have has to do with the state of Gatwick which is now under construction. Air conditioning was not available at our gate nor the seating area. We stood at our gate for a long time before being processed so that we could enter the seating area for the flight. We went from hot to hotter prior to boarding."
Cons: "We missed this connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "Courteous crew. Nice aircraft."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "But leg room."
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good food/service throughout the trip."
Cons: "The on-boarding in Barcelona was a little odd. Instead of calling boarding by groups or zones it was a free for all. That could have been better organized"
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and welcoming. Good entertainment system too keep busy during flight. Arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Seat are definitely getting smaller and not too comfortable."
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Pros: "AA got me home safe."
Cons: "Entertainment was nonexistant. Most movies were unavailable and those that were would start and then say “no longer available” monitor did not work. I was not the only passenger with issues. Many could not get system to work. Antiquated and/or poorly maintained. Also, announcement made it seem as if you had to pay for wine/beer/spirits. I wasn’t drinking so it didnt matter but at other times this would have been a hassle. Never had this on an international flight. Flight was okay just not top drawer like it used to be. Cost cutting measures have impacted the brand. Would not say it is first tier. Dont mind a “no frills” flight if it results in lower cost to consumer (aka Southwest Airlines)"
Pros: "Every thing was find.."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected.."
Pros: "The Crew. Polite, helpful accommodating, SMILING!!!!"
Cons: "Note code share - came on American Airlines Delayed- no explanation- no"apology"- but really not necessary as most of the time - things happen. Food was mediocre. Entertainment system not working."
Cons: "Poor service by air hostess in the flight. Didn’t give the right food. Ignored when I asked for orange juice."
Pros: "The comfort..the movies."
Cons: "No outlets. Poor options for vegetarians"
Cons: "Flight out to BCN was one of the worst in my life! Never had an agent (BA Denver) talk to you and then mid conversation say they closed 3 minutes ago (7 minutes in to trying to find a flight alternative for their cancelled flight...and I wasn’t being upset!)"
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Pros: "everything was on par to most travels until we got to miami."
Cons: "they lost a container of bags for over 2 hours!! i was supposed to have a 6-hour layover (i had 2 separate tickets) and had a spa appt at the ritz i had to cancel and pay for because you couldn't locate a container of bags for 2-hours. i feel bad for people with a connecting flight who didn't get home with their luggage. ruined the homecoming."
Cons: "Hi, I couldnt make my flight as I was very ill and when I called to reschedule it, I was given a form to fill out and no help. So I am STILL stuck on Barcelona, trying to figure out how I can change my ticket and how much that will cost me. Why does it take a form? Why can't someone give me a price quote?"
Cons: "Both of my flights, to and from Europe were delayed. Missed both connections which caused us to get to our final destination hours late. Thing is, they don't even seem to care. We will never fly BA again"
Pros: "Liked all the little amenities - actual meals, USB plugs for charging, free movies and games to entertain my kids, enough leg room that I can bend down and get stuff from my bag under the seat and that I could lean back a little without causing the person behind me to need knee surgery, tilt feature on screens to make video viewing easier when the person ahead of you tips their seat back. Seats were wide enough that I didn't fear jabbing my neighbor in the ribs every time I moved. Ice Cream!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the seats were comfortable. I enjoyed the movie selection."
Cons: "My seat was broken (button to recline was stuck)."
Cons: "It was not explained to us why my wife was pulled out of the line for questioning. They did not introduce themselves or anything."
Cons: "American Airlines was late! There was no indication that the flight was late until it was time to board, then they indicated it would be 25 minutes late, which actually turned into 50 minutes until the plane arrived. It had to be cleaned and prepared for our flight, which then took off over 1 1/2 hours late. Many passengers missed their connecting flights and American Airlines was no help... they directed people to the Miami Airport Crew. American Airlines stated that the plane was late due to air traffic control issues, but in reality the plane hadn't even arrived yet. I felt like I was lied to! Shame on American Airlines! I will never fly with this company by choice!"
Cons: "I booked the flight with Kayak and it showed the airline as Finnair, the flight was actually with American, no complains about it. The issue was that Kayak did not update me with the Flight number for American Airlines and kept sending me information about the flight with Finnair which was not going to actually take place. I had to actually call American and spend time with a Representative providing all the data to be able to get my American Airlines flight booking code so I could check in online. American as always was great! Shame on Kayak!"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The plane was so old, the TV was high in the middle. Very kittle room for legs, and I am a small person. Very uncomfortable for an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the staff that served us. Very attentive! Very polite. Could not have been better."
Cons: "The seats worked well but showing their age. One seat across from me broke mid flight. The attendant did get it working. The controls are pretty easy to understand. Push a button and see what happens."
Pros: "The food and service were better than expected given the plane."
Cons: "The plane was so old. It had phones,no individual RGA. The same movie played both ways on our flights and the sound didn't properly work. The overhead was so tiny. I will not fly American again."
Pros: "The service was good and the food was ok. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "That we didn't have our own screen to select our own movies."
Pros: "Great crew of airplane staff"
Pros: "No internet on long light!!!!"
Pros: "Crew helpful & friendly"
Cons: "Felt squished"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delay due to lack of communication with Philly airport"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "One crew member was very funny and helpful which unfortunately we forgot his name but he looks like Oscar from the Office if that helps. He was awesome! And the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "James. One of the crew members on our flight he was extremely rude and had no interest in helping you with putting your carry on away and if you have to put any effort he automatically says "you have to check this in" luckily my boyfriend got up and arrange the baggages easily and done. James was obnoxious, rude, and very unfriendly. The entertainment was absolutely terrible. It was a 10 hour flight the movie choices were slim to none. When I took a flight from New York to China and rode United Airlines we had every movie selection imaginable."
Pros: "My business class seat was comfortable"
Cons: "4hr boarding delay and no entertainment system whatsoever on a 6hr flight."
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "Did not get to sit with family"
Pros: "Instead of going to Finnair we had to go to AA which was ok but confusing because we thought we were flying with Finnair"
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "The flight went very well, and the crew was helpful. The flight was very very cold. So it wasn't very comfortable. Felt like the temp could have been brought down just a bit."
Cons: "Still in the waiting room waiting for this flight"
Cons: "I was picked for a random TSA check."
Pros: "Crew maintained good attitude throughout a very tough flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic. Because there was no control on carryon baggage, the overhead bins were full and people were fighting for space. Air Conditioning on plane did not work on ground - and we were on ground for over an hour before we were cleared for take-off. In spite of heat and delay, we were not offered water or other drinks. Instead of walking onto the plane, we had to take a bus and then climb steps to the plane. This was true on both departure and arrival. Because of a broken bone in my foot I had asked for assistance. There was no assistance except for my companion."
Pros: "was on time"
Cons: "In business class, was supposed to be herringbone arrangement which are large seats and comfortable. I am not sure if they switches planes since my reservation, but the seating arrangements were different. They shuffled everyone up and no one was sitting next to their spouses/family. Also, the seats are horrific to lay on, that its a joke. Just sitting reclined and almost upright was better than trying to recline them. I don't like complaining about creature comforts, but when you pay extra like this and you think your getting one thing a don't, they should at elast acknowledge it."
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "The cabin crew did not seem to enjoy what they were doing. At times they appeared annoyed or rude, if you contacted them, or asked for anything."
Pros: "Excellent experience using kayak"
Cons: "Nothing negative to say"
Pros: "see top review"
Cons: "see top review"
Pros: "Nice flight and crew was good. Liked the reasonable legroom since I'm 6'4" tall."
Cons: "No entertainment. No overhead lights to read by since the entertainment did not work. Can't sleep on plane so became boring with not able to easily see my reading material."
Cons: "they refused to provide accommodation or any reasonable flight alternate. they showed no urgency or any decency to help me. i will avoid this airline as much as possible in the future"
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Much more but with this price you can not expect much!"
Cons: "The early morning fight was delayed, and I appreciated that TAP notified me ahead of time. However, TAP did not communicate that despite the 2 hour delay, we were required to be at the airport checkin as if the flight was never delayed - and agent dismissed us as late. Only begging got us on flight."
Pros: "On time, very polite."
Pros: "Really spacious, clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Good service but not top of the line "go out of their way" service"
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "very pleasant all cruise, and food very delicious"
Pros: "Seats were Comfortable"
Cons: "We travelled with 2 carry ones and one checked bag throughout our 2.5 week honeymoon. Check in agent suggested that we check all 3 of our bags since the flight was full. We did. The flight from BCN to LIS was delayed 2 hours at the gate, but we were told we could somehow still catch our flight from LIS to PDL. We trusted that was true. We arrived at LIS without a single garment of clothing (we checked all 3 bags through to PDL), and then realized we missed the flight to PDL. We stood in line for 3 HOURS at the TAP help desk, only to wait behind a group of very angry people who monopolized the staff. Once we told the agent our situation, he told us there were no more seats on any flight to PDL the next morning. Not only that, but he could not provide a hotel for us to spend the night. This is 2:30am, 3:30am BCN time. He told us to find our own hotel, but we do not have international phone plans, so we could not make the reservation ourselves. He had nowhere for us to sleep. Then he had us wait for his SATA associate to help us, and he put us on a flight to PDL the next day, but it was not direct! We had plans for the following day, a hotel reservation in Ponta Delgada that is NOT refundable, and now the final portion of our honeymoon is ruined. No one ever offered to give us vouchers for ANY costs or for the anxiety and total of 14 hours lost on the most important trip of our lives. Shameful."
Pros: "The fact that I made my flight."
Cons: "In incompetence of the clerk that checked me in, and the fact that I was thrice charged for my bag, because he didn’t know how to use the computer."
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: "My husband has a mobility scooter and they handled it better than American Airlines and we flew first class!!!"
Pros: "Nice crew, tasty snack, new plane with comfortable seats"
Cons: "Huge bag charge for anything over 8 kg! Sign said last call 40 min before flight when agent told us to check board 30 min before flight for gate assignment!"
Pros: "Good service, nice meal."
Cons: "No USB ports or movie choices. Entertainment screen very small."
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: "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."
Pros: "Check in was handled professionally and personally. Service throughout the flight was cordial."
Cons: "The entertainment system was non existent on the Airbus 319."
Cons: "No air conditioning. Lots of apps didn’t work on the entertainment device."
Cons: "The space is really uncomfortable"
Cons: "They gave someone else seats I had reserved for 6 months and that I had paid extra for. I will take that up with the company forewidth"
Cons: "The worst airline"
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."
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: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the flight hours."
Pros: "Seats are ok and good entertainment system"
Cons: "The attitude of the hostist and the way they dont give you food choices and don't even explain or say what food they are giving you. When i ask whats in this they gave me a look and a weird attitude"
Pros: "Service wonderful"
Cons: "Flight Washington late."
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: "Waited in an hour + 1/2 to check a bag, then waited an hour to board the plane. None of the employees told us what the delay was they just let us stand in line."

Cons: "Late flight, and my life flashed before my eyes on the landing."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Wait at baggage claim was too long"
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled."
Pros: "Was able to sleep most of the flight and we took off on time"
Cons: "Checking a bag took almost an hour."
Pros: "Nothing. Staff unhelpful and unorganized."
Cons: "They seem super unorganized. You wait on a line to check-in, then another one to board and then another one to actually sit down. I've enevet been on an airline that has such long waits."
Pros: "Service and crew were very friendly. Excellent!"
Pros: "Lots of room in the plane. And leg room!"
Cons: "Did not know until I got there that I had to pay for any checked bag."
Pros: "My wife needs help getting around but they placed us in the last row. No leg room again either. The crew was understanding and helpful."
Pros: "Left on time. Served food and drinks. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Served food and drinks. Orange "juice" tasted awlful. Bland sandwich. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "They wouldn't let us on our flight when we got the 45 minutes before our flight. It was horrible."
Cons: "Terrible TAP service. Missed my flight to no fault of my own and I was made to buy a new ticket. No changrs, no partial refund, couldn't even use my return ticket which I had to rebook too. Nice customer service !!!"
Pros: "Easy check in and bag handling"
Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."
Pros: "Food and attention"
Pros: "Good planes! Entertainment is modern, food good, service great. Boarding fast, planeson time. Special thanks to TAP taking off from Boston on 12/29/16 with snow and even heavy snowing. I was lucky did hey stuck in Boston. The only weird part was that i was not able to pick seats without a fee even 24 hours prior flight."
Cons: "Made me check luggage once about to board and luggage with my medicine never made it to my final destination"
Cons: "We were told that the flight had wifi and it didnt. The video units on back of seats were okay- not great. The audio on the headphones was not good at all."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and did a good job."
Cons: "The entertainment on this flight was non-existent unless you paid extra for the iPads or internet. There were no tv screens on the back of the seats, which was not very pleasant for a 9 hour flight. We tried connecting to the plane's wifi and watching movies on our phones through the Air Canada app, but the wifi was so slow that the movies never even loaded. Additionally, not every row of seats on the sides has a window, and we were in a row that had a wall instead. The plug in our row did not work either so we couldn't charge our phones with it."
Cons: "Some of the crew was a bit rude and snippy"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and helpful"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment behaved extremely glitchy and even after the flight attendant reset the system it still gave me problems to work on my tablet. This really needs to be fixed as I had the same issue on my flight to Barcelona."
Pros: "Nice crew and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Exceptionally small seats and warm temperatures made overnight flights challenging. They do not offer free alocohol on international flights. But the worst part of the flight was the entertainment situation. There are no tv screens on the plane. They wait to tell you until after you've taken off that you can download the air Canada app to stream their selection of tv and movies to your personal devices. Once you do, they'll explain to you that it's really hard to get the streaming to work properly because so many people are trying to use it at the same time, but don't worry - they have preloaded iPads available ... for rent. It feels like a blatant cash grab on top of an already disappointing flight experience."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Way too long of a flight not to be able to recline much, stretch your legs much or get comfortable. Miserable"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "In-flight video (via app) was slow and unreliable. Seat comfort was lacking."
Cons: "I am filing a complaint with regard to my recent flight on Dec 31, 2016 from Barcelona (BCN) back to San Francisco, US (SFO) on Air Canada, with a connection in Toronto, Canada (Flight # AC1915 and AC739). My wife and I were denied boarding at Barcelona because we did not have an ETA to visit Canada. However, we actually qualify for the Transit Without Visa Program, allowing us to transit through Canada to the US without an ETA. Please see below. My wife and I arrived at BCN airport in Barcelona before 11 am, more than 3 hours prior to the departure time of 2 pm for flight AC1915 to Toronto. Please see the attached bus ticket as proof, indicating we boarded the bus at 10:30 am at Barcelona city center. This is more than enough time for check-in processes. I knew about the ETA requirement prior to travel. However, I also knew that, as a Taiwanese national, we qualify for the Transit Without Visa program, allowing us to transit through Canada to the US without an ETA. The Canadian Government website states that: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas-all.asp#eta-exemptions “The following persons are exempt from the eTA requirement: • Foreign nationals seeking to transit through Canada under Transit Without Visa or China Transit Program.” Furthermore, also on the Canadian Government website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/ENGLISH/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=1092&top=16 “Travellers whose planes refuel in Canada going to and from the United States, as well as participants in the China Transit Program and Transit Without Visa Program, do not need to have an eTA or a visa to transit Canada.” We qualify for the Transit Without Visa Program because according to the Canadian Government website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/twov/travellers.asp • We are citizens of Taiwan • We hold valid Taiwanese passports (please see attached passport photo) • We hold valid US visas (please see attached green card photo) • We are traveling to Canada on an approved airline: Air Canada Rouge • We transit through an approved Canadian airport (Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, terminal 1, without a change of terminal between flights) • We hold a confirmed onward ticket to the US the same day (AC739 to San Francisco, departing at 6:55 pm the same day) • We arrive during operating hours for the US in-transit pre-clearance facility. During check-in, we were told that we needed an ETA and denied us boarding. I tried explaining to the supervisor on duty that day that an ETA is actually not required for us since we qualify for Transit Without Visa, using the arguments I presented above in this letter, as well as showing him the websites from the Canadian Government. However, the supervisor insisted that we needed an ETA, citing the general policy that Taiwanese citizens require ETA to visit Canada. What he did not realize was that we satisfy a very unique case that did NOT require an ETA."
Pros: "It was a very good flight. A pillow and blanket were provided which was good for comfort and to keep warm because it was very cold on the flight. The hot meals that were included were tasty and the the coffee was good. The bottles of water were a nice touch."
Cons: "Better temperature control"
Pros: "Food was good and flight attendants were very professional. Our first time flying Air Canada and I was very impressed!"
Cons: "To pay so much for a transatlantic flight and have to pay $10 for an IPad on the 8 hour trip home??? It would be nice if even limited internet was included so we could use our own device. The worse experience was getting through customs at the airport in Barcelona on the way home. Only two agents available to stamp passports on a Sunday morning when the world's largest cruise ship (Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas) had docked earlier that morning? We arrived at the airport at 8:30 and no Air Canada agents were available to check us in until 9:00. After waiting to get through customs and we proceeded to our gate, our 11:45 flight was just beginning to load! Lots of shoving and people cutting line to avoid being late for their flight. I heard one person mention they had missed their flight, and I'm certain many others did as well. With the chaos and delay, I'm surprised altercations didn't happen. The airports/airlines need to work with the local authorities to avoid these delays and provide their customers better service."
Pros: "I rented the iPad for movies and enjoyed that option much more than trying to make the in-seat touchscreen TV work on a previous flight on Air Canada."
Pros: "The boarding process onto the plane in Barcelona was excellent. I also find the Air Canada crews to be very professional and the food was good."
Cons: "The seats are very tight and the overhead bins are only large enough to hold one roll-on bag. Also you have to download an app in order to have any entertainment."
Cons: "Was not informed about long security conditions at Toronto. While Air Canada employees were efficient and helpful, they were understaffed for the large number of passengers. We are so grateful that our flight waited for us due to terrible delays not our fault. The food is awful, but staff is quite good."
Pros: "Air Canada needs to improve their check in process at the Barcelona airport. There were people everywhere waiting for way too long with no real lines or people to help explain where to go. More check in people are needed to improve this process. Once we got up to the front of the line (after about 1 1/2 hours) there was a short line for those who did not check in prior to getting in line - why would people who don't follow the process get an advantage?"
Pros: "food was fairly good. crew very nice."
Cons: "The selection of movies was poor. not enough current releases. would have liked to have an alcoholic drink for free. (one would be nice)"
Cons: "Food was terrible even for flight standards. No screens or movies shown. Had to have pre-downloaded the ap to watch movies. No wi-fi available for purchase. On one of the drink passes I was skipped."
Cons: "No leg room, narrow seats and no individual air control's. It was a surprise when they came around and offered movie rentals which they didn't do on the flight over from Toronto to Barcelona. If we fly with Air Canada another time we'll check first to make sure it isn't Air Canada Rouge before we book."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "9 hours + flight with no entertainment and HORRIBLE food (it didn't even bit hunger). Not that it would make a difference, but the people on the back of the plane only had one choice of food instead of the usual chicken or pasta, for example."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly. The flight attendants were attentive and very nice."
Cons: "There wasn't much to like. They left an hour late with no explanation and forced us to run through the airport to catch our connection, they lost my baggage, the in flight entertainment was awful. The Rouge Player had no current movies or TV and the food portions were very small for a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "It is the first international flight that do not have any television screens, music stations or any entertainment on board. Alcoholic beverages are not free! We sat in seats that cannot recline - for the whole flight from Barcelona to Toronto. Cabin crew did not keep the cabin clean. Although we flew Air Canada from Barcelona to Toronto and have not left the inside of the airport, we had to go through customs again and almost missed our flight to Atlanta due to that. Airport officials were rude; some of the crew members treated us with disrespect and not approachable. It is the worst international flight ever - even worse than some third world carriers that I used before."
Pros: "Flight was late. No device from air Canada"
Cons: "No tvs. Delays. Worst airline ever"
Cons: "* No animation screens during the flight * Available tablets but you had to pay * The electricity plugs weren't working so i couldn't recharge my computer"
Pros: "Clean CAbin"
Cons: "food and multiple delays - Lost Lugggage"
Pros: "Great boarding options...Zone 2. I love that."
Cons: "No issues on this flight....took a bit long to board, but overall it was fine. Nice crew. Your entertainment system suck!"
Pros: "We were delayed leaving Barcelona. Liked that Air Canada rebooked flights and kept us up to date on other flights with short connecting times."
Cons: "This is for Air Canada Rouge which is their low cost portion. Had outlets to charge but did not work or very slow to charge phones, no wifi available even to buy, flight attendants are young and inexperienced in handling questions about challenges. No entertainment on flights which I did not know until after my first flight to Venice with no entertainment (iPads were all rented out) or Wifi available for over eight hours. Bathrooms are old and several bathrooms did not have brighter lighting after you lock door."
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly two hours. Gate signs were never updated. 7 gate attendants spent 1.5 hrs standing at the gate talking laughing and joking amoungst themselves. They appeared annoyed when anyone asked for an update. They finally announced they were waiting for a wheelchair to unload a passenger from the previous flight. They announced they were ready to board zone 1 and 2 and then did nothing for another 25 minutes. Funny when we finally boarded nobody ever saw a wheelchair go on or off the plane. Understand that flights are delayed but no updates or explanations and a gate crew that seemed annoyed that the passengers were disrupting their social time was unacceptable."
Pros: "The Crew´s attention"
Cons: "Is terrible that in a flight of 9 hours the airplane did not have TV programs or Films is deplorable we should rent an Ipad for enterteinment."
Cons: "Nothing, everything was bad. Flight were late and service was really bad. I will never fly Air Canada again!"
Pros: "Initially I chose Air Canada because the price was better than United. But the hassle was not worth it."
Cons: "Rouge plane was dirty. Flight attendants gave incorrect information regarding immigration forms that caused us problems after landing."
Pros: "Crew was always very happy and helpful. Came by a lot for drinks and such"
Cons: "It was really cold, even with two blankets. Sometimes hard to hear the intercom. Food is kind of iffy"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get an aisle seat and have a decent amount of room. The food wasnt bad and there were plenty of bathrooms available on the plane."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight due to the flight to Toronto being delayed for some reason. No other flights were available to get me to my final destination for 24 hours and the gate team doesnt report to the gate until 20 minutes til boarding time. Not much in the way of customer assistance. Zero movies available and no wifi on the planes make for a long trip to Europe from N. America."
Pros: "It kept to schedule and didn't crash."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge is a no-frills bare-bones subsidiary of Air Canada. BEWARE! Don't expect Air Canada levels of comfort or service."
Pros: "Airplane was clean and crew was nice."
Pros: "Glad for this new route. Will make Europe easier to access from PDX."
Pros: "Plane arrived pretty much on time. Boarding was uneventful."
Cons: "Plane too low to use jetway at Pearson. Epic walk from US gates to immigration. Insufficient leg room if you're over 5'10", but that's how it is these days."
Pros: "I liked the way they handled the rain delay. Although inconvenient, they were transparent with the process"
Cons: "The lack of certainty whether we were removed or stilling our connecting flight to delay."
Pros: "EXCELLENT LEG ROOM AND SPACE"
Cons: "THE FOOD SUCKS....EAT A DECENT MEAL BEFORE YOU BOARD. THANK GOD I WASNT HUNGRY OR I WOULD HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED."
Pros: "Boarding, food, flight attendant work"
Cons: "I always need real-time flight map"
Cons: "We purchased tickets for Air Canada, only to find out that it was their budget flight, Air Canada Rouge. No television on a long Trans Atlantic flight - How boring! Talk about "bait and switch"."
Cons: "everything-the food is horrible, no space, no monitor so what do you do on an 8 hour flight overseas? When we booked, we were not told that we would be flying Air Canada Rouge, but were told we would be flying a different type of plane with amenities. Talk about Bait and Switch. Will avoid Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "See my response to the trip from Denver to Barcelona. I'm not repeating myself. Terrible plain, terrible food. Cabin crew not as bad as gong from Toronto to Barcelona."
Cons: "See my response to the trip from Denver to Barcelona."
Cons: "No free movies. Tight leg room for an international flight. No complimentary beverages. What a huge difference from Lufthansa which we used to fly to Europe. Would avoid Air Canada Rouge of overseas travel."
Pros: "My legs barely fit, but it was possible to sit without my knees hitting the seat"
Cons: "No movies, no air vents, reading lights only work sometimes"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, decent entertainment choices."
Cons: "One the first part of my journey, our Air Canada flight was running over an hour late, which caused us to miss our connection in Zurich by about 3 minutes. The gate agents weren't all that helpful, and then the re-bookng desk in Zurich (not Air Canada's fault) was horrifyingly bad. We ended up missing a whole day in Barcelona. Then, the flight back from Barcelona to Toronto was also late, causing us to again miss our flight home to Houston. Again, the gate agents were completely confusing, leading us to initially believe we could make our flight, so we ran with suitcases only to learn that we hand't made it and that we might not even get out that night (we ultimately did). Our final flight was also late."
Cons: "Very crowded, small seating and legroom"
Pros: "I will fly Air Canada again but will probably drive to Toronto to catch a plane, rather than take the connecting plane out of my own city.There's a Tim Horton's at the airport!"
Cons: "Flight from our small city was late leaving and we didn't find out about the delay until close to the take off time. The reason given to us was that there was too much air traffic in Toronto. Couldn't this have been planned better? Not the fault of Air Canada."
Cons: "Even though this flight was operated by CA and booked through Ethiopian, they would not honor my two checked bags. However, the guy behind me - also going to Ethiopia - they allowed two checked bags, no charge. I always feel like they aren't willing to budge or look up the rules or even just be nice about baggage. I'd rather not give any more $$ for baggage that i'm actually allowed."
Cons: "Over 1 hour waiting on phone and disconnected. Terrible. Check-in people didn't even say one single word of apology. they suggested call Air Canada."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, there was entertainment available via the display on the back of the seat."
Cons: "The touchscreen display wasn't working properly, making it difficult to control things like volume. I would have preferred a display with physical buttons that took a bit more time than the weirdly synced touch screen"
Cons: "They kept us in the airplane 3 hours before"
Pros: "Crew very kind, entertaining good"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "We were fee'd to death. For example, this is the first time flying Air Transat where we had to pay extra for luggage and the cost was incredibly high! I feel ripped off."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient, and made all the difference."
Cons: "Since we booked online, we were told that we couldn’t pre-book our seats for this flight. So even though we arrived more than three hours ahead, we couldn’t sit together for this nine hour flight. After having the same thing happen on the way to Barcelona, it was really disappointing."
Pros: "Reliability and flights departed and arrived as scheduled"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the complimentary meal, snacks and beverages which where delicious! I was surprised they served so much food throughout the flight! The entertainment was a bonus as every seat had their own TV screen and menu of items to choose from; movies, TV shows, music, games and more!"
Cons: "I liked everything from this flight!"
Pros: "Great video system."
Cons: "Seats and legroom are insufficient."
Cons: "The washrooms were a disaster"
Cons: "I miss the flight"
Pros: "Staff were professionnel, the plane clean and confort were good"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late"
Cons: "9 hour flight and only a few shared tiny screens to watch films on. Terrible and outdated"
Pros: "meals, attendants were pleasant and informative."
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "Stewardesses were great..... Very Helpful"
Cons: "Plane was dated ..... Bathrooms not clean."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly attendants."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold."
Cons: "They ran out of food on both trips"
Cons: "Plane boarding and takeoff was delayed. Also when we landed we got mixed with international flights so I had to go through customs !!!! Took me 2h to leave the airport. Longer than the flight over!!!"
Cons: "Last week lost my luggage on a direct flight. Flight to Toronto would not let me print my boarding pass after I had checked in online and had no checked baggage to be delivered. Missed my flight due to this as the company was debating to print my pass"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful, and when we ran into problems they were confident and professional."
Cons: "The plane was an old Airbus 310 with no entertainment systems in the seat backs. Instead, it was equipped with the old-style system where everybody watches the movies on a few screens. The choice of movies was poor: the "feature film" was a nature documentary made by Disney where they gave the animals names and talked about their feelings. The food on the flight was awful. We were told there would be be a choice of chicken, beef, or vegetarian noodles. But apparently there were only 5 chicken meals placed on the plane, so the only non-veg option was the beef. This consisted of 3 small pieces of beef in a gravy, and a pile of mashed potatoes with an unfamiliar texture. It was also oozing some sort of orange fat. Not very appetizing. Due to weather, the flight was unable to land in Montreal, and had to be diverted to Plattsburgh, NY. I don't blame Air Transat for this. We sat on the tarmac for 2.5 hours in Plattsburgh, but at least we had air conditioning, and the crew served us water. (This is better than the planes that were diverted to Ottawa that day.) We were assured by the crew that, while we surely missed our connections (to Toronto in my case), the Air Transat agents were well aware of the situation, and they would rebook us and we would arrive home that night. Upon arrival in Montreal, nobody from Air Transat seemed aware of the situation. I was with ~50 other passengers trying to get to Toronto, and the agents had no idea what to do. They sent us to a gate, and told us there was a flight leaving at 9 pm. (The flight was originally scheduled for 5:45, but, again, I don't blame them for the weather.) When we got to the gate at 8:45, there were no Air Transat agents anywhere. Passengers became agitated, and we tried looking for Air Transat agents at other gates, again with no luck. Some passengers even tried calling the Air Transat call center, but they couldn't get through. There was one Air Transat employee present, but when she saw the group of 50 of us, she hid behind the door to the jetway. (She said she was off duty.) By 9:30, some agents arrived. They were just as confused as us about the flight, and did not know what was going on. In particular, they thought there should be a flight crew present, but they couldn't find any. Eventually, at 10 pm, they announced that the plane would be leaving at 12:30 am for Toronto. Restaurants were closed at this point, of course, but at least a bar was open. By 1:30 am we eventually departed, after waiting for passengers to arrive from Ottawa. I have never seen so many sleeping people on a plane before it even took off. Total transit time from when I boarded in Barcelona to landing in Toronto was 20 hours."
Cons: "Our flight from Barcelona was late and we had to rush across the airport to get the connection to Toronto. By the time we landed it was almost time for the Toronto flight to depart. No information was given to the passengers when we landed informing them that the Toronto flight was waiting for us. No information was given by the ground staff either, just told to drop your checked bag off and get to the gate and hope the flight was still there. Would have been a lot less stressful if someone had said "don't worry, the Toronto flight is waiting for you""
Pros: "Entertainment, movies etc."
Cons: "Cramped seat"
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "2 hours and 45 minutes to board a plane that was supposedly not cool enough to board. Then once we were on our way for an almost 11 hour flight, no coffee was available due to "contaminated water". Landing in Toronto after 10 hours and 45 minutes, we had to sit on the plane for another hour because there was no available gates. We were bussed off from a nearby field."
Pros: "Good variety of food and snacks-and free! Long flight with good leg room. Only issue was strike that was taking place that prevented us from disembarking immediately."
Pros: "Good service and professional transit."
Cons: "The cabin was unreasonably cold. I was surprised that this was not remedied once it became apparent that the great majority of passengers were piling on extra layers of clothing. I think the choice to sell earphones and blankets is a petty one that only serves to diminish customer perception of an otherwise excellent airline. I hope that the decision to set the temperature so cold did not relate to interest in selling blankets!"
Pros: "Very helpful to families with small kids. On our flight to Europe which wasn't too busy, they even left middle seats free so my kids could sleep whole night. Smooth landing. No significant delays. Good price for family vacation to Europe that includes checked bag, and meals during flight. They nickel and dime on other stuff but if you prepare yourself (bring extra clothes or a blanket, own headphones) you'd be fine. Considering how much I saved by driving to Toronto to take their flight instead of flying from Cleveland (US$3500 for the family of 4) I am super happy with what I got for my money."
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection. No mileage program Bathrooms could be bit cleaner, but still ok"
Pros: "Once I finally got boarding it was quick and staff were helpful"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable I have back problems and found it difficult to sit when I had to use my seat belt. Once again staff making faces at each other showing their impatience with customers. Staff slammed overhead lockers and sighed clearly showing how unimpressed they were."
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours in he plane, on the Tarmac waiting to leave. Why can't passengers remain in the airport until the plane is ready?"
Pros: "* Smooth flight. * On time DEP and ARR."
Cons: "* Not able to check in on line due to Kayak was provider. * Too much time spent on pushing the duty free goods. * Felt like the trolley came down more times than food or drink. * Long line to check in. * Wasn't able to use entertainment App even though I had pre-loaded the App. It asked for my confirmation number but I didn't have one because of the Kayak booking. With other airline, flight attendant was able to over ride. This time flight attendant said she couldn't do it. I felt she really didn't care."
Pros: "They gave us water when we had to wait an hour before take off. It was not their fault we were delayed. They did wait for the 30 of us who were delayed from Lyon and did not take off without us."
Cons: "They did not answer my call (s) for water to take a pill. They never offered anyone earphones. There were no services at all on this flight as the seat belt sign was on the whole time."
Pros: "Got me here alive"
Cons: "Staff attitude below average, plane quality below average"
Pros: "Ran out of the chicken option, all in all, excellent flight, crew and entertainment."
Cons: "Having bigger seats/personal space would be nice for such long flights."
Pros: "The flights were efficient and streamlined. There was very little waiting and no luggage issues."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not pleasant or helpful. They were rude for no reason to the passengers."
Cons: "Older, tight space plane with a kids movie on overhead screens."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient,the food was very good, crew walked and gave water after meals and throughout the flight thereafter. Cleaning was efficient too."
Cons: "Smelly washroom and a very dirty toilet bowel in the beginning of the flight. It was cleaned and looked better but still had a smell of urine. Boarding was very disorganized. People rushed in to board causing lines to board."
Pros: "I upgraded. What a difference!! First time travelling by Air Transat but hopefully not my last!! Great experience from start to finish."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great! Wish we could give more than 5 stars to some of the categories. The crew were amazing!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good entertainment selection available and drink provided on short flight."
Cons: "Delay and disorganization at airport left passengers frustrated with at least 3 changes to gate prior to departure. Added to this was the incorrect announcement on P.A. System at 6:55pm a change of gate to leave at original time (7pm), only to have a stampede of passengers arrive at newly assigned gate to have no airline representative there and soon a new/revised departure time of 21:05 instead. Hopefully, those clients with international connections were able to make it, but I suspect that several had their plans changed with this > 2 hour delay."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortably seated and quality entertainment."
Cons: "Should consider providing meals to children under 12yo first (for coach seating) so that they have choice of meal. My 10 year old daughter was the 3rd last served her meal on this flight when only 1 option was left. She was Ok with it, but likely because she was so hungry by then. I can see how such a situation could have been potentially very stressful for a family..."
Pros: "The aircraft itself and the entertainment system were fine"
Cons: "Extremely late, crew at desk had info AFTER passengers were made aware of the delay. Turbulence throughout flight and bumpy landing"
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive. Food much better than expected on any airline these days."
Cons: "Boarding in Venice was a disaster. NO FAULT of Air Transat's! This was complete incompetence in Venice with shuttle busses. The on board entertainment on this particular type of Airbus is antiquated. Also NONE of tour Android devices could make the downloadable entertainment app work. It always crashed on starting a movie or show."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to heavy rain but that's certainly no fault of the airline itself. Nice, comfortable plane. In flight entertainment. Snacks and beverages available. Overall great experience. I would certainly fly Air Transat again."
Cons: "No food & 1 hr delay"
Pros: "Absolutely terrible experience"
Pros: "Good flight in general!"
Cons: "AirTransat B737's require you to download their App B to enjoy entertainment before the flight. This is what they tell you. What they do NOT tell you is that you need to download the things you want to see during the flight BEFORE the flight as well..."
Cons: "Boarding was a little challenging but that was more a function of updating and construction at Faro airport."
Pros: "Going out we had an A-319 - with OK overhead bins. Coming back we had an A-330 - more room seat wise and bin wise. The 330 was newer and had excellent video screens."
Cons: "All airlines need to be better organized on boarding. Boarding should be from the window out to the aisle. Announcements about boarding should be posted on a screen "Now boarding rows XX". I can't hear the announcements (yes I have hearing problems), which staff really don't have time to be making. I would be great if we could get back to the model of getting value - 1 bag free - meals on regular fare. The aggressive fees for extras are really the only way airlines make money."
Pros: "Nice smooth"
Cons: "Bathrooms had no water, for toilet flushing or washing your hands. They knew before they took off. Wouldn't give us bottles of water to wash our hands with, could only use their squirt bottled of hand sanitizer. When I asked why they couldn't just give us water bottled, they told me they could only bring enough water to drink. The flight was half empty."
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive. Service was also excellent."
Pros: "Quick chech in."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Cushion material Vinyl is hard to sit on. Armrests are plastic and vinyl which were hard on the elbows. Air Canada and other Airlines serve much better food. Tea / Coffee were bad taste."
Pros: "More room for me in an aisle seat"
Cons: "Headphones jack was broken and had no personal TV screens"
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The seats were poor. No on flight entertainment which was poor for a long flight. The food was terrible. To have just a sandwich for a 7 hour flight was horrendous."
