Cons: "My bag did not make my connection in Iceland and was not placed on a plane headed the same route on the same day over 3 hours later. It was delayed for over 24 hours and it took over 48 hours to receive my bag."
Pros: "Free kids meal was nice. Good selection of kids shows."
Cons: "Seating was not as expected due to plane change. Screens did not work on first leg, and screen controlled seat recline & lights."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Needed a little more space."
Pros: "Everything Nothing"
Pros: "Overall nice service"
Pros: "Very speedy embarkation process"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable, no snacks were offered at all unless you paid for food, & we had to get off the plane in Iceland on the runway & walk to a bus that took us to the terminal."
Cons: "No food goingacross"
Cons: "Lost luggages"
Pros: "We didn't crash so that's a bonus."
Cons: "Well first off it was a connector flight from Toronto to Reykjavik to Oslo to Tromso, Norway. The first leg was delayed and then they lost my baggage, which happens, I get it. But then due to the delayed flight and lost baggage I missed my connection to Tromso. Then apparently neither airline can do anything to help me so I lose my entire flight cost because I booked through a third party. So I had to rebook a new flight at a premium cost just to get where I needed to go or risk losing my whole vacation. On top of that the baggage they lost is my backpack...hard to go backpacking across Norway with no backpack. Then they ship the backpack to the wrong airport, incorrectly wrote down my wrong cell number so they couldn't even call me...one cluster f*ck after another."
Cons: "Reduced legroom"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Cons: "No instruction on use of shared video. No headset. Music?"
Cons: "The bag check in process was unorganized. The bag belt was not working and out bags were left outside of the counter. They were not scanned in and did not make the flight even though we arrived at the airport 3 hours before boarding. It is very disappointing to get to Iceland and not have clothing to go explore. We are hopeful the bags will arrive before we leave."
Cons: "This airline is the actual worst. Never taking it again."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "The boarding was 45 minutes delayed and seemed disorganized. The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "Boarding was good and crew were pleasant"
Cons: "All bathrooms were out on the plane for the final 2 hours. You have to pay for any food you would like."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment was excellent. We are both tall and we offered longer legroom seats at checking! Only good for purchase on board so we are before boarding. We purchased a light snack on the second leg of the trip. It hit the spot. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "It was all good!"
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is very crowded. All the seats were taken, and it was even hard to find a place to stand without being in the way."
Pros: "No pillows or blankets in seats, had to get your own or ask."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The baggage check was a problem. Self check is at Keflavik airport is required. After printing the self check tags all of the baggage drop point systems failed for about 30 minutes. After repeated re-boots the systems would work intermittently. Initial check in to the gate took about 90 minutes."
Pros: "Cancelled flight"
Cons: "Was not notified of the cancellation until arriving at baggage check. Instead of putting us on another Iceland air flight, they put us on Virgin Atlantic connection to British Airways. The Virgin flight was 2 hours delayed so we missed the connection and then it was not clear who's responsibility it was to get us to Paris."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "They had great menu options. Good price on alcohol if you want to drink also a really superb selection of spirts to choose."
Cons: "Small aircraft should not put three people to a row."
Pros: "About the same as our first leg of our trip."
Pros: "Loved the northern lights on the flight. Also the staff was great, flights were great and on time."
Cons: "Could have used a snack on the long flight."
Cons: "Doing things on time seems to be a concept they don't grasp; boarding seems to happen at the time they state for departure (but that isn't what your ticket says). Explain to me how you can have all your big flights departing at the SAME TIME? Gates are close together for big flights with very little seating area so people are milling about confused about which line is which and not wanting to sit on the dirty floors."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Cons: "They did not call for rows so it was mass chaos especially when our gate line crossed with another boarding at the same time. They have a lot of flights leaving at the same time and it could be a much better boarding process."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "No food offered"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. There were no surprises."
Cons: "No free snacks or food"
Pros: "sufficient room for legs (my height is 1,78)"
Cons: "An entertainement digital tablet is available on demand. Nevertheless, the proposed films and music aim almost exclusivment Icelandic public"
Cons: "This is the first and the last time that I fly to Europe with a budget airline. To save themselves a few bucks, they made the experience much less pleasant than it could have been. What they sold as food on the airplane was pathetic. And the prices for the awful food at the airport in Reykjavik were outrageous and they were not even posted, so until you went to pay you didn't know that those two pieces of stale bread with a thin slice of ham cost more than $12. Things like these leave one with a very bad aftertaste. Not worth it."
Pros: "Uncomfortable plane."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "It's fine if you miss your connection in Iceland to France because you can wait around for the next flight 8 hours later. If the original flight didn't have a delay of 1.5 hours things would have been smooth. Every flight from Icelandair was late and they don't give you an update as to why. The crew told some white lies to make us believe we wouldn't have a problem making our connection."
Cons: "Boarding was a little disorganized."
Cons: "I was delayed 9 hours due to a strike, including a 7 hour layover with no offer of compensation or assistance."
Cons: "The terminal was a mess, under construction and very disorganized. This made the boarding process difficult and confusing."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding in Reykjavik was nightmarish. There were no announcements at all and no organized seating process. We had to stand out in the cold wind waiting to board because they didn't board from the back. No hot water on the flight, so no coffee or tea or oatmeal available. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "A surprising amount of legroom! The flight was incredibly well managed. We were well taken care of and everything was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "The gate at Keflavik had nowhere to sit. I prefer some sort of included food, but all of it requires payment--even little snacks."
Cons: "Hearded through constuction with poor directions and had to ride a bus and stand outside for 20 minutes in Iceland at 5 am trying to board a plane."
Pros: "Luggage made all the very short connections, which has never been the case with other airlines such as BA, Air Nez Zealand, Delta and AA."
Cons: "pay for food"
Pros: "We ran a bit late but the crew made up for it!"
Pros: "New airbus neo great entertainment set up and comfortable seats . Excellent food in economy and very professional crew with personality"
Cons: "Economy fare was great until 95 euro for a single bag added to stowage was added on . With Ridiculously high baggage charges watch out if you are flying economy. Sort of negates the benefits of economy"
Pros: "Everything. Flying First class is the only way to fly"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Providing more drinks and beverages"
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."
Pros: "The in flight snack was surprisingly diverse and tasty."
Cons: "We had to take a bus from the gate to the plane, which is fine. But we stood on the bus at the gate for 10 minutes after it was completely full before it finally drove to the plane. Then when we were just outside the plane we had to wait again for several minutes before they would let us off."
Cons: "It was cancelled with less than 12hrs notice !! I had to rebook on another airline costing more than twice as much !!"
Cons: "Coordination between connection flight"
Pros: "Nothing went wrong so it is good enough for me"
Cons: "Poor service"
Cons: "Long wait on crowded hot bus to the plane."

Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "No delays and much nicer staff than last time."

Pros: "The crew was great. Happy crew is a fun crew to be around."
Pros: "All except for service to handicapped."
Cons: "I mad reservation listing that I needed wheel chair assistance due to walking limitations. Upon flight arrival no service was provided not was it provided on my return trip."
Cons: "Delay one hour"
Pros: "The crew was very king"
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable because the backs were not adjustable"
Cons: "I don't think I have ever rated any service negatively, but here's my first. TAP completely ruined my birthday trip that I have saved up for a long time for. DO NOT TRAVEL WITH THEM! I had a valid Schengen tourist visa issued by the Consulate of Portugal. At the time of visa issuance, the printer of the Consulate was not functioning, so part of the visa information was hand-written, but it was properly signed and stamped. The Consulate told me it's valid and said they have been doing so for ten years. The Consulate also said that they, not the airlines, have the sole authority to determine the validity of the visa. When I went to the airport to check in with TAP, TAP staff denied me boarding because they did not believe my visa was valid. I only learned later that this action was inconsistent with TAP's own internal policies. The staff at the kiosk told me that I could either ask for a refund or rebooking of the ticket. But when I called TAP the next day, I was told I could not get a refund even though they should not have denied me boarding. I called TAP many times and got a different answer each time. They simply refuse to compensate me for their own mistake. It's the most horrible travel experience I've ever had!"
Pros: "Staff courteous compared to our previous TAP FLIGHT"
Cons: "The flight was delayed pre boarding and took longer than it should and thus missed our connection to London"
Cons: "Flight was delighted and service staff was slow"
Pros: "Accommodating flight crew. Good food. Nice landing and take off."
Cons: "I am a permanent resident of USA and have a Green Card and the portuguese boarding crew gave me a hard time about my paper work. I was very disappointed by the way they treated me."
Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Cons: "They were lying about a supposed compensation for denied boarding which was supposed to be handed out in Lisbon. I didn't expect this behavior from grown up people, and such a company in Europe. TAP should be excluded from star alliance."
Cons: "My flight to Miami was delayed due to weather. I missed my connection to LHR, therefore missed my TAP flight to Portugal. I called TAP (before the flight) and they would not change the flight because I went through a travel site. My $240 ticket was lost, and I had to pay over $900 for a new one. I doubt I will use an internet site again because I will unlikely get a refund and it was impossible to change the ticket. Feel awful!"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and well organized."
Pros: "I couldn't have been more impressed. Great food and drink and service. Terrific entertainment options and a comfortable ride across the Atlantic."
Pros: "Flight was in Time"
Cons: "We got only mineral Water on the Flight but booked a full service flight"
Pros: "Economy/coach leg room was better than expected"
Cons: "shuttle bus delayed once passengers had boarded for transfer to plane and delayed release to plane once we arrived at the plane, perhaps due to a plane repair, but wasn't told what the issue was before boarding"
Cons: "Having to wait 3 hours in Lisbon airport after airline failed to hold our ny flight leg. Needed to stay overnight and be rebooked. Customer service lines in Lisbon worst I have seen in over 30 years of flying"

Pros: "I landed safely"
Cons: "The infotainment system didn’t work. Headphones connection is faulty. Everything else was ok."
Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
Pros: "More opportunities to eat Tim hortons"

Cons: "In Toronto they told us that we most likely will miss our flight. Why?? Plenty of time!! No need for miss information. Ground crew not well trained.No boarding pass was given (which is fine). 1 hour wait because of power failure at the airport in Montreal and then we are about to take off and there was an engine failure so we had to come back again . Not good stuff!!!! How would you feel flying again air canada?"

Cons: "Got to Denver 4h Late."
Cons: "The entire Air Canada computer system was down for 45 minutes, and we had to run to make our connection, which we barely did. If the entire system is down, why don't they put a 45 minute hold on the flights since they know that everyone is late? Plus, one of the representatives gave us false information."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight ended."
Cons: "The "ping" concert. Since some designer genius (thanks, Boeing!) put all the controls in the armrest, exactly where any normal human being will rest his/her elbows, the controls keep activating every time you lay your elbow in the armrest. That means, your games will cancel and restart a thousand times, your volume will keep shifting from deafening to mute, and the button calling for help from the crew keeps going "ping" all over the plane. The crew ignored the calls, surely since they know what goes on with the plane, but I wonder what would happen if somebody really needed help. In addition to that, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable, narrower than ever and hard as brick. Every time I board a new plane I wonder what can they do to make it even worse, and plane designers never cease to amaze me with new medieval tortures."
Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "All went smoothly"
