Pros: "vegan sweeties for the kids, so nice as my daughter usually has to say no. Also swiss chocolate - so good! Our veggie meals booked hadn't gone through on the system but we were found some they had anyway - wasn't very nice though."
Cons: "The baggage took a really long time to be delivered to the carousel"

Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seat."
Pros: "On time. Check in was very easy."
Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."

Cons: "Temperature was very hot"
Cons: "The HVAC system was apparently defective and passengers in the mid-section of the plane, myself included, were bundled up in winter jackets and blankets."
Cons: "Haven’t got there yet!!"
Pros: "Attendants were attentive and efficient"
Cons: "Getting from one the deplaning pad to a gate on the opposite side of the airport was daunting given that we were running 1/2 hour behind schedule. We made it with barely enough time, but our luggage did not."

Pros: "I was late ( I had to drive 230 Km ) and I managed to call in advance the company that was doing the check-in on behalf of SWISS - I asked them the Check-in time closing time and by almost flying ( speeding like crazy ) I arrived before that moment."
Cons: "I did not check the terms and conditions of the ticket. I am a Star Alliance Gold member and I was expecting SWISS to have a similar booking system like the others I fly with. I found out that the ticket fare did not contain checked luggage ( so I had to pay a hefty fee for it ) and also my 20" wheeled case that was ok in all the other flights I took it with me, this time was oversized and overweight . My wife took out the 2 laptops so it became within weight limits but still oversized - My wife paid for the fee ( I wasn't there at the time and she is not a such experienced flyier as I am ) . When I found out about the fee, I checked their rules and I found out that the hand luggage is allowed to be 22" . I saw in the airplane a lot of people with cases having the same size as mine, that went as checked luggage at a cost fo around 40 . I want to see how can I get my money back . . ."

Pros: "Everything was great while aboard!"
Cons: "I wished to upgrade to business for aditonal $1000 which resulted in a 15 wait . There was only one person allowed to do that and she was obviously owerwhalmed. I got a smile out of her eventually but the whole process seemed wrong considering the amount of money i spent on that ticket:( Wish whomever I got to first at the counter were able to make the change and spare me the walking around and waiting."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent food and was left alone to sleep after a long day."
Cons: "Didn’t like that I missed original flight by minutes due to chaos of the airport and resolving the issue took about an hour but did like that I was rebooked on the next available flight for no extra charge and the attendant seemed sympathetic to my plight. A simple but important detail."

Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"

Pros: "overall experience is great"
Cons: "seats would have better"

Pros: "Crew helped us with connections"
Cons: "Choice of seat came with a cost. Very uncomfortable seating. Not enough room."

Pros: "Easy flight and on time"
Pros: "nice and polite crew"
Cons: "no screens/maps with route information no enterteinment unless downloaded on your own devise, I had an Iphone which is too small to watch anything.... seat hardly reclined at all and felt extreemely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."

Cons: "Great trip."
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."

Pros: "Had no problems. Was a comfortable flight."
Pros: "The flight was really on time and the flight crew was just amazing. The overall experience was exceptional. Will recommend this servic to any one who will like to travel"
Cons: "The 1-star responses correspond to N/A. Mt flight was :30."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Cons: "The food was terrible, boarding was chaotic, only ten movies to choose from."
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Cons: "Couldn't checkin online. Had to wait in line for over an hour."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
Pros: "Boarding was again easy, directions were clear as to where I should sit. My only trouble with the crew was that announcements were sometimes too quiet to hear at all, which I hardly cared about anyway (seat belts, please). The movie selection was unexpectedly good, as was the music section. Books were meh."
Cons: "I was not comfortable after about four hours, my biggest problem being I had already been riding in an airplane for a total of six hours that day. Food was fine, but came with salt, which was nice. I don't expect a four course meal on an airplane, but I didn't eat with gusto. The headphones provided were lousy, but I just plugged in my own set."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, I missed my connection flight and now they lost my luggage. Staff are very friendly, but they can't do much to help me. Icelandair is doing OK in handling the situation, but let's see...I am still in an uncertain situation"
Cons: "More depth to seats, room to straighten shoulders while seated (and I’m small), breakfast on overseas flight. Hard to hear announcements over plane noise."
Cons: "In general, not good enough for an overnight flight. Our flight was late, we missed our connections which is the primary reason I am complaining"
Pros: "Only use this airline if you are just flying to Iceland or taking advantage of their stopover in Iceland option. Otherwise choose another airline."
Cons: "Serve food like most transatlantic carriers-bringing Subway Sandwiches or paying large fees for Pringle’s potato chips is beyond greedy for an airline these days. If Icelandair is that desperate for profit it makes one wonder where else they cut corners."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was required to gate check a bag, previously okay to bring on board, and it was lost upon arrival."
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."
Pros: "Seat was okay. Crew was okay."
Cons: "Much too cold inside the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "The price was good, the crew was friendly, and the on-line check in process was smooth."
Cons: "Non-functional entertainment consoles..so we could not watch anything, use our reading lights, adjust the temp, or summon staff if we needed to. With a bar in the middle of my foot space, there was no space under my seat for my personal item; No food on an international flight also disappointing."
Cons: "We had a different plane with narrow seats - ok for me but not the person beside me. Nothing but tea or coffee - all food and beverage had to be purchased. My experience. Uncomfortable and hungry."
Pros: "Fly Saga business.... exceptional food and service."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Comfort in seating was lacking, also having the luggage sitting out in the rain for 20 minutes was not ideal."
Pros: "Nice business class seats, comfortable, quiet"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been larger"
Cons: "Definitely not a comfortable flight. And being that it’s an international flight, some free snacks would have been nice."
Pros: "I like that the flight was very comfortable & there was lots of options for entertainment!"
Cons: "Honestly it was probably the best flight I have ever taken!"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly, we had the seats behind first class so we had a ton of legroom. I would definitely fly Iceland air."
Cons: "We had a 5 hour flight and they didnt serve snacks of food. The flight didnt include bags. 2 bags cost $160"
Pros: "Again, it was quick and easy. Nice staff."
Cons: "The child who kicked the back of my seat for the flight."
Pros: "Everything Nothing"
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
Pros: "Every flight was on time as scheduled. Icelandic Air was great."
Pros: "Treated well, staff were kind, met some great people going to Iceland as well"
Cons: "Of course everyone would always love a bit more space - but we understand why we can’t :)"
Cons: "When I booked this flight last March the booking info said 1 free bag. When we got to the airport we were told that we had to pay $94 Can per bag because we had Economy Light class. We had the same issue returning but the cost was $55 US. On top of that Iceland Air changed planes and bumped us from row 10 to 41 - the last row. Bizarrely there is no customer service desk at the Reykjavik Airport - they just give you a little card with the website for customer service. I don't understand how any airline does this! BTW, they blame the third party for the issues! That is you!!!"
Pros: "This flight was as good as my first with them. Absolutely wonderful service. I might be painting the experience a little extra rosy because this was my first business-class flight, but I feel like I never want to fly coach again."
Cons: "Boarding was a real hassle. I think they called for Saga-class passengers to board early, but there was no way for me to get to the gate through the ocean of people. I was on the other side of a glass divider, and it was shoulder-to-shoulder crowds the entire way to the plane. Oddly, I had no access to the free Wi-Fi on this flight."
Cons: "No food goingacross"
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: "Our flight to Reykjavík landed 30 minutes before our connecting flight to Zurich was scheduled to depart. we got off the plane and ran to the gate with several other passengers to catch our flight. The crew closed the gate and would not let us board even though the plane was still there. Other airlines wait for passengers from a connecting flight. This is unacceptable and we will never fly Icelandair again."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Pros: "Efficient short connection in Reykjavik. Also the luggage made it to the next flight."
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: "Didn’t exist"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, very uncomfortable compared to other airlines."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Pros: "The connecting flights (had mostly co-passengers all hurrying to the next flight) waited for us - thank you!"
Cons: "with that many flights coming through this airport, I would have expected better organization to shuffle us through. While the voice announcements were frequent and clear, the signage was less so. Food at airport is expensive."
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: "Having more leg room. Smaller plane. Short transit time."
Cons: "Being charged for a $10 meal after paying $100s for a ticket"
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: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
Pros: "All passengers made it."
Cons: "Significant amount of bags never made it to ZRH"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, I slept the whole way."
Pros: "This airline has so much going for it!... Pleasant staff, nice touches for overnight flight (bottled water as we entered the plane, pillow, blanket), plenty of legroom, TVs in the seat backs that work perfectly! What a treat!"
Cons: "not enough liquids served"
Pros: "On board entertainment was good (i.e., movies, shows, etc.)"
Cons: "No food was served."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "Smiling faces. Politeness Helpful"
Cons: "With 2 Samaung notes and 1 Tabley and 1 Lenovo PC failed to get wifi on 1st leg? Why? To Reykavik! ! Flight stewardess also failed!! With help of crew to ZH got the net halfway on second leg ...!"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Cons: "Delayed flight again."
Pros: "The airline people were kind."
Cons: "Not knowing about the smaller carry on standard size. I was expecting to see the same size but did not."
Pros: "The pilot kept us well informed after boarding of delays, etc."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic with no concern for social distancing. Speaker system in gate area was so distorted it was very difficult to understand the gate attendants announcements. Cabin attendant acted as if he were bored and would rather be home in bed; he gave no acknowledgement or greeting to passengers upon boarding."
Pros: "Amazing plane, great service, Air. Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Get the 787 back to this route."
Pros: "I felt safe add respected. They serve drinks and small snacks, no meals going to Hawaii, plan ahead."
Cons: "The airport at Phoenix had little seating. I was funny in the floor in case someone needed a seat. Otherwise, everything was good."
Cons: "Slightly more leg room"
Pros: "Direct flight Erie to Charlotte. Glad for that."
Cons: "Not sure why, assuming it’s the plane type, but first time in 35 years my ears continued to pop all the way up and ended up with ear ache."
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "The seat was super Uncomfortable. Squished Middle seat that I paid $37 for (w/Priority boarding, see below). What a ripoff. The seat was designed specifically to torture passengers, of this I am certain."
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade that included "Priority Boarding", For AA, that meant Group 5 out of 9. WTF?? Clearly Bait and Switch - there's a big placard at every AA boarding gate that states: Priority Boarding 1-4 (to the Left) and "Main Boarding" 5-9 (to the Right). Fraudulent, clearly."
Cons: "The plane was very old. It had cigarette ash tray in the armrests and bathrooms. It also only had three screens to watch movies. The headphone jack did not work properly and you could not hear the movie well. There were no screens in the chairs in front."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Pros: "Seat upgrade."
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time. Besides that. Not much."
Cons: "Having to us use our cell phones to watch a few channels was terrible. No movie. No help. You were just left on your own. Total of waste of time. Give us a monitor. Give us options. You are American Airlines, not Allegiant Air"
Pros: "I was able to finish a movie I started on a different flight and found an additional enjoyable movie to watch."
Cons: "The airplane was uncomfortably hot. The flight attendant apologized and said it would cool off at cruising altitude. It never cooled off. The flight was full and very crowded. I was in the last boarding group even though my seat was in row 17. They required me to check my carryon due to space."
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Pros: "Nice, efficient crew. Wheel chair & motor cart waiting for me as requested. Good flight."
Cons: "Cabin oppressively hot during boarding, stayed a bit too warm. Never found the power outlets that the plane profile in magazine claimed were on the aircraft."
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move."
Cons: "American Airlines couldn’t make plane seats anymore cramped. Cabin was very cold with no way to control climate. If you don’t buy first class or premium be ready for very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Got here early"
Pros: "Pleasant service ; courteous team"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good pilot, comfy seats, entertainment"
Cons: "No food served"
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "AA is always on time! Love the premium economy!"
Cons: "Too tight."
Cons: "Well because of some dumb delay we missed our connection allowing us to be given new tickets for two more connecting flights. Which is absurd."
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "This was a completely hassle free trip. No aggressive, angry flight attendants. The usual United Airlines features that I have become numb to were entirely a absent. The 2 hour delay did not happen!"
Cons: "The attendants could have come down the aisles a few more times. I got pretty dehydrated & had to get up & ask for water."
Pros: "The un seat entertainment"
Pros: "Decent seats and space Good entertainment choices"
Cons: "Business-like attendants"
Pros: "The staff were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "When I called the emergency number, I was put on hold and charge by my wireless carrier for international call and no one answered the call."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful and friendly, the seats are so comfortable and the free tv is such a perk!"
Cons: "I wish the flight crew could more strongly enforce the storage issue. When I have to check my bag, adding another 40 mins to my airport experience, because someone puts their purse in the overhead storage it peeves me a bit."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, landed early, had plenty of entertainment, and the crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Check-in was problematic: the first agent claimed my luggage allowance was only one checked bag, even though the ticket said 2. Had to wait in a second line to fix it."
Pros: "We were able to be put in an exit row which was great - especially since my husband and I are very tall and it was a cross-country flight."
Cons: "I find it ridiculous that on a cross-country flight they can't even offer pretzels or peanuts. There was NOTHING!!!! I have been on short hops on other airlines and you get something."
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"
Pros: "Nothing, the worse experience I've ever had on a flight from the US Never AA again!!"
Cons: "Unprofessional crew!! The safety instruction was a mess, first it was on the big screen, totally black, only sound, then the crew started a discussion in the ail if the would do the safety instructions yes or no...in the end they did it without explanation what the were doing and in 2 minutes. Al three of them just did something. Rude and chewing gum crew, the dropped a salad bowl but not one of them was thinking about cleaning it up. The entire flight everybody walked over it in to the carpet. Friendlynes and service are two words that does not apply to this crew. From the first flight till the last flight AA made a mess out of it. Canceled our flight in JFK, no help or service, you are on your own when AA cancels a flight, after rebooking our flight we had a 7 hour stopover at Dallas, again no service, no voucher, no nothing. Then today with our return flight AA could not find our ticket numbers, turns out that when they rebooked our inbound flight they forgot to take over the return flight...cost us 2 hours and 10 minutes to check in at LGA Never, ever again with AA, even easyJet provides better service then AA does on intercontinental flight!"
Pros: "Since chek-in gate number changed two times. Outdated airplane especially for international flight. In flight meal could be better. Compare with other US airlines AA needs serious improvements in customer service."
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Small plane claustrophobia, entertainment required your own debice"
Pros: "Good pilot communications. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Very cramped quarters. Broken seat. Out of control heating system. Rude staff An hour wait for baggage."
Pros: "Got an economy extra seat without upgrading, had a variety of snacks and service extras which were nice"
Cons: "Was never asked for dietary restrictions so no vegetarian meals were available, pretty old aircraft to be flying that route, no seat back entertainment"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Bad delay, long security line there"
Pros: "Yes, it was comfortable and they r nice."
Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"
Pros: "Service was great and the airplane was very well maintained."
Cons: "More water, I was thirsty most of the time."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding!"
Cons: "Slightly more comfortable seats would have been helpful."
Pros: "Nice and friendly crew"
Cons: "One more toilet on the Lisbon Geneva flight would have been nice."
Cons: "We ended up with two center seats. Person in front put back her seat so I couldn't even fully unfold my service tray"
Cons: "When late, pls help passangers.with no helpfull people dont work"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, horrible customer service, no flight entertainment available, seats were uncomfortable. Definitely would not recommend"
Pros: "The crew was kind and the flight ok. They wanted to charge me 120.00 USD for my one bag checked ONE WAY. 240.00 USD round trip for one checked bag!!!!! On their website it clearly states one free checked bag for ALL FLIGHTS xcept “discount” fares. No way to prove I purchased “basic”"
Cons: "They lied. The website does not clearly state that you will be CHARGED FOR CHECKED BAGS. Warning!!"
Pros: "The plane was fairly new, clean, and comfortable seats."
Cons: "A better selection of the main meals in business class."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"
Cons: "We were just surprised by the charges for our checked bags. Thought we had it all covered, but no!"
Pros: "The flight was not full and without prompting an attendant took a look at my long legs and led me to a row of seats for myself. A simple gesture that was greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Clean plane, nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Pros: "Everything was going well. Confotable seats lovely air hostesses. Food wasn’t so great but I was surprised we even got something!"
Cons: "Unfortunately I had problems at airport security which wasn’t very pleasant!"
Cons: "Bad experience with charged"
Pros: "Nice paid business class upgrade"
Cons: "Seat 1F gets hit quite often during service"
Cons: "why do they sell their tickets when they know they can not make the connection? little time between the two flights compared to the functionality of the airport. never again TAP"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane - tightly-packed but comfortable seats. Note: if you travel with a bag with wheels it will be weighed at the gate and those over 8kg will be checked. If you have a heavy bag without wheels, it gets no scrutiny."
Cons: "Odd they didn’t have a terminal gate on their home airport - we were bused from a distant spot on the tarmac to the terminal."
Pros: "Food and staff"
Pros: "Free food and drinks. Pillow and blanket and ear buds all ready on each seat! More spacious seating."
Cons: "No indication booking was discounted flight on kayak website! Charges for baggage very , very high!. Very bad border crossing as we waited in line for a simple passport stamp for 3 hours!!!!!!"
Pros: "Good food serving times."
Cons: "The hospitality of the airline crew is very poor as they are extremely rude to their customers. The planes I flew on were very out of date and not comfortable for international travel. I have flown on many airlines, but these planes were by far the worst. Cheap price, for a reason. The seats didn’t recline, the food was terrible, no options were given for food, and the movies were pre-picked. No one had a choice in what they watched. Very outdated. I had 2.5 hours to board my connecting flight and they caused me to miss it. As I waited in the customs line entering Lisbon, I asked a TAP representative if I’d have to get out of the line up and go right through as my flight left at 2:10 pm. They said you will make it, stay in line. I get near the front of the line 2 hours later... hundreds of people were in this line and they only had 2/10 customs agents available!!! I ask another representative how far my gate is since my flight leaves in 30 min and she told me “no you missed it. but don’t worry others will be missing it too”. So no I did not miss it, you caused me to miss it cause I already asked if I would and you people told me no. I run to the gate, which has now changed to the other end of the airport, so I run to that gate and it is 10 min before the flight is to take off. I ask the desk agent at the gate and he tells me the flight has already left. Others had missed it too due to the insane customs line up. So the plane left 20 mins earlier than scheduled with only half it’s passengers..... unbelievable!!! When I went to the service desk they did not show any sympathy or apologetic behaviours whatsoever."
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: "Given the weather in the UK we were expecting delays but we were pleasantly surprised! It was one of the smoothest journeys we have ever had from leaving our hotel to getting home and TAP featured highly in this. We even landed 35mins ahead of schedule - amazing flight with lovely crew."
Cons: "If I have to be picky I would ask that the crew on board speak more slowly when providing inflight information, particularly when English is not their first language as us oldies have difficulty understanding what is being said."
Cons: "for some strange reason luggage was not included on this trip (our return leg). we had to pay for luggage at the airport."
Pros: "I liked the foot rests and leg room. The gluten-free meal was wonderful."
Cons: "Although I had a delicious gluten-free dinner roll with the main meal, I was served a soggy rice cracker for breakfast. Why not another roll?"
Pros: "The check in was smooth and boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had problems with TAP up front related to baggage fares and them keeping the $85 I paid for my son who is 2 meters tall to be in an exit row and then assigned to a different seat. He was miserable for almost seven hours."
Pros: "Nice crew, on time departure"
Cons: "Old plane, bad food"
Cons: "You can't reach them via phone and they are horrifically slow and difficult to get ahold of."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and great!"
Cons: "TVs did not work, no sound/frozen on games"
Cons: "As I keep metioning....you guys need to be more generous with the Victoria program. I fly you guys a minimum of 7 or 8 times a year, plus numerous partner flights, and what do I get? no free upgrades, 60,000 miles to become gold etc etc"
Pros: "Crew on flight was pleasant and good at updating on progress of flight."
Cons: "TAP has terrible customer service and support. Was told on check-in that flight did not include checked luggage which is bizzare/unreal for an international flight especially since I also paid to upgrade my ticket. Even in explaining to me the person on the phone was rude. This was very disappointing as I had such an amazing trip to end on this sour note."
Pros: "Honestly I didn't like anything because before I boarded , I was charged for all my luggage . They said that tap changed there policy , how I suppose to know ? Why didn't it say anything while purchasing a ticket"
Cons: "I was charged for my 3 luggage . It's not fair . I still have the invoice , before ibbook the ticket it said that you get free luggage ."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable in economy although no one is ever happy with how little they recline, crew was friendly and helpful. Entertainment selection was larger than most airlines I've flown on."
Cons: "Flight left Toronto at midnight, the crew served a meal and it was about 2 hours after departure that the cabin lights were finally turned off. On an overnight, overseas flight, turn off the lights and service breakfast with a noon arrival like all the flights I've taken to London do."
Pros: "Food is worst I ever had in business class in 15 years of frequent flying. Worse than even many economy classes. Worse than many shirt hauls. Service is poor. Seats are super old. Only upside: on time"
Cons: "Nothing to like here except timeliness"
Pros: "So accommodating!! Top of the line!"
Cons: "Some delays at the airport but service is excellent."
Pros: "The crew was great and very kind; the pilot informed us a couple of times of where we were and how long to the destination; we arrived 10 minutes ahed of time! A perfect flight!"
Cons: "First flight was delayed by just a half an hour and we arrived in Portugal. We had a connecting flight to AMS with also TAP and had a two hour window to make the next flight with the same company (TAP). We were in line for passport and then security and talked to several TAP employees and they said we would be have time and wouldn't have a problem catching the second flight. Well, we got through the lines with 30 min before our next flight and they wouldn't let us on. Customer service and organization of the airline is really poor. The aircraft had minimal room and no entertainment. We got on our next flight five hours later and all they gave us was a $10 food voucher. So poorly managed."
Cons: "Food was a piece of bread with some ham.....why bother?????"
Pros: "Very good regional airline; good service; luggage arrived!"
Cons: "Second half of flight was very rough"
Pros: "I tot was nice that the flight was not completely full so that we could have a little bit of room"
Cons: "Second connecting flight was very rough. We thought that this would be the shorter, easier flight but it was not"
Pros: "Food was excellent, and the cabin crew extremely nice and attentive. Amenities kit was adorable too!"
Cons: "We were in first class, and no On Demand IFE!!! You do have a personal screen in the seatback, but they only play continual loop movies. For us, we started with one movie, but then due to technical difficulties, the crew had to reboot the entire system. So once it was back up and running, they switched the movie. And even that one didn't play through....apparently, at some point they determine its "bedtime" and turn off the IFE!! Crazy in this day and age!!! Also, the plane is old and REALLY worn. Lots of dirt, tired seats, yucky bathrooms, etc. This plane needs an overhaul!! No storage anywhere in the seats either, which was shocking. And the angle lay flat seats are certainly fantastic in comparison to Coach seats, but still hard to sleep and get comfortable."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "Kept switching gates"
Pros: "Treat like a guest 2 great meals."
Pros: "Good crew, ok seats(economy), good tv."
Cons: "Food was, well airline food, better than you find on domestic flights."
Cons: "this was a very last minute flight to return home. It was cancelled within hours. I am very disappointed."
