Pros: "Good entertainment, great price"
Cons: "Had about 30 people on our flight that was taking another TAP connecting flight - missed the gate by less than two minutes - did not hold the plane when they could have"
Pros: "Good crew. No crying or screaming children is always good. Dinner was decent & nice that it comes with a glass of wine if you wish."
Cons: "Packed in a sardine can for 9 hours is not fun. Being bussed out to a remote location for a wide bodied plane is crazy. At least at ORD we had a gate."
Pros: "Boarding in Lisbon well organized but delayed at check in and on the tarmac - 40 mins. Food on this flight good. Crew fine both flights."
Cons: "Both Tap flights delayed, little info'/explanation about this.Boarding in Copenhagen chaotic, problematic tickets holding up the queue with only one staff member. Food on board was so boring and unappetising."
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: "New plane, clean, entertainment system was state of the art."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very nice. Seemed to not want to be there. Service was nearly not existent."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, horrible customer service, no flight entertainment available, seats were uncomfortable. Definitely would not recommend"
Cons: "No complaints. Good flight. And we were surprised to get a snack pack on such a short trip."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Be on time and that they dont loose my bags! Wait for and extra 2 hours in the arrival airport because of the lost"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"
Cons: "We didn't select our meal option for vegetarian because the last time we did we ended up with a horrible, horrible, hockey puck like dry food option. We assumed there would be a cheese pasta option, as there usually is, well we were completely wrong. Both options were meat, even the salad had meat in it. So we got a roll with butter, a tiny fruit, and a disgusting wet dessert. Even the breakfast was meat and cheese. I got online to select our meal option for our return trip, and the options are out of control. We have a lacto-ovo-vegetarian option, whatever that is"
Pros: "There was a major problem with my booking and I went through almost 2 hours or stress thinking I would not be let on the flight. This has never happened with Kayak. But it was really bad. TAP insisted they could not book me on as Azores Airlines from Pinta Delgado to Toronto was not booked for me. I had to call bothe airlines. With no help from the desk. I finally got both to confirm and at the last minute was allowed on the flight. I chose this route to have a nice couple of days in Portugal and I will have. But the flight start was really upsetting."
Cons: "I like Kayak. But am very concerned about booking through in the future with this treatment."
Pros: "The crew and passengers were in a great mood on a Saturday night flight feom Orly to LIS"
Cons: "There were papers and debris from previous flight still on the floor. Clearly they did not vacuum. If yoy want piece and quiet, this is not thw late flight for you."
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Late takeoff. Late arrival. Had to run thru the terminal to catch the next leg. Lost luggage."
Cons: "Crew was very sour faced, impolite and rude the whole time. Seats were way too packed"
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: "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: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Had to wait forever to find out Gate Number."
Pros: "The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "The food was edible. The entertainment display was old. Not much leg room."
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"
Cons: "Tha total absence of hard alcoholic beverages, no moderate cocktails"
Pros: "Charging clients laugages exorbitant"
Cons: "To pay twice the ticket and bagages"
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: "So accommodating!! Top of the line!"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight, losted the baggage and couldn't help to resolve the problem. They also lied about the flight they wanted to replace to solve the problem which even didn't exist in their company. So, I will never ever take the flight from this compound again."
Pros: "The new Business Class is phenomenal! Best seats I've experienced in a Business Class thus far. Too bad the transatlantic flight from New York to Lisbon is too short to enjoy it longer."
Cons: "There is nothing that I did not like, other than that the flight duration was too short. ;-)"
Cons: "They gave my 70-year old mother only a few hours notice that they were changing her one-stop four-hour 6AM flight into an 8AM multi stop 14-hour marathon. In fact, she was already asleep when they changed her flight, so she was already at the airport when she found out about the change. To do this to a 70-year old woman is reprehensible. Worse, after 2-hours with customer service, nobody there made any real attempt to remedy the situation or offer any compensation. Worst airline experience EVER."
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."
Pros: "The plane arrived in Lisbon without falling out of the sky prematurely."
Cons: "The process of checking my bag was brutal. It took an hour and half of waiting in line because the staff's management of the flow of people was so chaotic. Finally, a staff member realized that certain passengers were at risk of missing their flight and invited those passengers (like me) to jump to the head of the line. Otherwise, no communication from the staff to the queue of anxious people."
Pros: "Excellent service on board and at the ground... Very convenient United conection in the US :)"
Cons: "Second half of flight was very rough"
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: "TAP and the personnel from TAP were fantastic."
Cons: "The Dutch/KLM gate agents were horrible. I was treated rudely and unprofessionally."
Pros: "To be reimburesed for a flight I ended up having to book with Amex travel for the same day"
Cons: "An horrible policy that will steer m eaway from TAP airlines and kayak"
Pros: "Lisbon is a great location to have a long layover, any time of the year!"
Cons: "The customs line for non-EU passengers at the Lisbon airport was absurd..."
Pros: "Had all the wine I could drink."
Cons: "The flight was too late for our connections."
Pros: "I know the flight between Lisbon and Amsterdam is only 3 hours, but it could have been better. First, boarding was a mess because no one could hear announcements being made. Once on the plane, things only got worse. I'm a small person- only 5'4" and even I had no leg room! This was made worse when the seat in front reclined- very claustrophobic. There were also zero entertainment options."
Cons: "It was nice that they served light snacks even though it was a short flight."
Pros: "There was enough space between the rows of seats!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment"
Cons: "The crew was rude, the airplane was late boarding, late leaving and late landing because their boarding process is insanely stupid (everyone just rush the plane with no order). No notification on late timing."
Pros: "Website, check-in, boarding."
Cons: "Seat pitch"
Pros: "TAP is a pleasure to fly. Nice aircraft, dedicated freindly crew. Food was good, and plenty of it. Free wine! Great value."
Cons: "The 8 hour flight took forever. From boarding taking over an hour (I admit it was a full flight), the TV sets didn't work. They finally got most of the TV sets to work but we could only watch one movie that has several glitches (restating the movie after 15 minutes and volumes had to constantly be adjusted). The good options were limited for a pregnant women (sordfish - high in Mercury, turkey sandwich - not supposed to ear cold cuts, and meatballs (I unfortunately dint eat beef). I should have opted for the vegetarian meal but I wasn't pregnant when I booked my flight and the crew could not accommodate me. Also I think the should have servered one more round of drinks for a ver long flight)."
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cushen worn out flat"
Pros: "Cheap aitfare"
Cons: "On time takeoff Better food Television screens to watch movies Better selection of movies"
Pros: "Flight left Boston on time and arrived in Ponta Delgada 15 minutes early. Very clean and well maintained Airbus 321"
Pros: "No complaints about the crew"
Cons: "The in air entertainment didn’t work and the flight was 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "The crew was running into people with their carts-i saw it 3 times."
Cons: "The food was bad. The area before boarding was small, and once inside, there was no access to food or restroom. We walked far to board. From the"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and they never updated us while we were waiting or told us why. They changed planes and seat assignments without notice so the seats we selected we disregarded and we were not sitting next to each other. No entertainment and food was worst I’ve had on a plane."
Pros: "Newer, clean interior. Seats had power plugs and the SATA Onboard entertainment app provided free movies, tv and music."
Cons: "One of the male flight attendants was happy and engaging while the other was not friendly; and two of the female flight attendants were ok, while the younger two were unquestionably unfriendly."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and made us try stand in line for an hour to get bussed to the hotel- another hour wait. No luggage because it was in a bin so no clothes or anything. Left at 6 am next morning . Got to Sao Miguel and missed my flight that was to leave the day before. Made me wait on stand by before putting me up in a grand hotel with no luggage. It was Still in Boston. I had to buy things to wear and use. So late no dinner at hotel . Terrible"
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not pick seats when buying tickets through website. Had to call airline separately, which we did. However, actual tickets that we received at airport were for different seats. Happened to another couple on our flight as well."
Cons: "Expect major delays ."
Pros: "The crew were very kind very professional"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Cons: "Worst international airline. Old aircrafts, no A/V equipment, really bad food and service."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but they never made an announcement so we were overcrowded in airport waiting area, many people standing up, not enough seats, and we were kept in the dark Felt like we were being held hostage. Instead of boarding by rows, they let everyone go through all at once which caused the aisle in plane to be blocked. No organization as far as boarding."
Cons: "5 hrs delay and missed all connecting flights. Airline initially rescheduled flight 2 days later. Called Kayak and got no support. Kayak agent told us to keep pushing the airline. After 2 hrs of "working" with the airline, we were able to fly into Madrid the following day. Had to spend extra money for hotel room and car rental in Madrid because our final destination was Sevilla. Will never work with Azores or Kayak again. BTW, did we mention that while "working" with Azores to reschedule flight, we were booked to fly into an island off of Africa. Luckily, we followed up online with the changed itinerary."
Cons: "The flight was delayed - because they simply didn't have a plane- 90 min delay plus the additional time required to board 3 buses of passengers. I missed my connection in Boston, causing me to stay at the airport all night for a morning rebooking. The service counter workers said they were not required to help, they did not apologize either. I am not impressed , I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Pros: "It was clean."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal flying to the Azores was good but coming back to the US it was awful."
Pros: "... efficient, intelligent simplicity. Great job!"
Pros: "Flight staff was professional, vegan meal was decent, good leg room"
Cons: "Seats were fairly hard and uncomfortable for a long flight"
Pros: "Did not like anything about this airline!"
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late. There wasn't enough food for all the passengers on the flight. The flight attendants looked miserable, but were trying their best given the circumstances. The airplane was outdated, the seats not comfortable, and no in flight entertainment. SATA/Air Azores has a monopoly on the flights in and out of the Azores to the USA and no other airlines are allowed to flight that route. They should be ashamed of themselves by the way they run this airline and treat the passengers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed as usual. First class was very mediocre. There was no inflight movie, tv or music. First class doesn't feel like a first class flight."
Pros: "Everything was easy!"
Cons: "Everything was fine thanks."
Pros: "Nothing, the poorest of the poor and N empathy whatsoever"
Cons: "They canceled my flight because of too few passengers and than rushed all the passengers on an earlier flight. I was driving from Philly and of course couldn't make the flight that was bumped up three hour early. Than they have the balls to accuse me of being late and thus a no show. I have many witnesses that prove I was there on time. But no reschedule for me unless I pay a 1000 usd. I will sue these bastards with a passion. To an extend they have never seen. Not only a refund but loss of business as well"
Pros: "I liked that they served a meal, was definitely more spacious seating and leg space, the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like that when we arrived in Azores we were quarinitined to a space that could only be entered or left by passing Through security. So there were no bathrooms in the waiting area. I was randomly patted down along with a very small child and around half the other passengers. All they offered was water in the waiting machine. After all the waiting, we reboarded the same plane. They did not explain well what was going on."
Pros: "Honestly, they had the best plane food I've had in a while. Flight very comfortable and uneventful, they even gave us blankets and pillows."
Pros: "Crew was nice enough"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight upon arrival in Lisbon. No in flight entertainment, only one meal served, no spot to plug in electronics, and the bathroom door was broken and didn't lock. I would suggest paying a little more for a better and more reliable airline."
Pros: "Flight cancelled, were told we'd be called the next morning to reschedule but weren't, an hour on holdeach time we called, rescheduled a flight with extra stops 2 days later, was actually booked on a different flight, and were told we were actually only on standby when we arrived at the airport."
Pros: "The crew were PHENOMENAL going out of their way to ensure the needs of the passengers were met - truly the backbone of Azores Airlines. The seats on the Airbus 330 were relatively comfortable with decent pitch and extendable headrests."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed twice for a little over an hour total - limited time to make transfer in ponta delgada."
Pros: "Another AWESOME crew doing everything they can to assure passenger satisfaction!!"
Cons: "CRAMPED and miserable - smallest pitch in the air in the airbus 310! Cabin felt overpressurized and extremely loud."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Never had such an uncomfortable flight! The temperature at my seat was far too hot- I and others were sweating constantly. Also I am 6' 3" but wouldn't recommend anyone over 6' fly this airline, at least not in the normal economy seats- I've never had the experience of being unable to move my legs due to the seat in front."
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Check-in process was unusually slow and the flight took off 30 minutes late."
Cons: "Extremely old plane - no air vents, very hot and uncomfortable No soap in bathrooms Service wasn't great Boarding process was very long Entertainment limited Didn't offer water during the flight outside of main foodservice"
Pros: "I got there alive"
Cons: "Trying to be impartial on this review as it was my return trip that was a nightmare. I honestly just slept through the entire flight. It seems pretty obvious that SATA Has a monopoly on US flights to the Azores and they are making no effort to improve service."
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Smooth ride. The pilot communicated well. Food/drinks were good. Airline stewards were polite."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized"
Pros: "the crew is nice"
Cons: "Delayed 4 times without explanation. No option to select vegetarian meal at time of ticket purchase or check in. Boarding is a free for all. No order, just a mass of people funneling in to get through the gate. Then had to get on a shuttle bus to the plane... which took us to the wrong plane. Boarding the plane is also a free for all. The disorganization must have at least doubled the required boarding time."
Pros: "Had two seats to myself. Hot breakfast."
Cons: "The airport in Lisbon was terrible. Got bussed 20 minutes to get to terminal and had to wait 2 hours in line to get through passport line. Could not find my bag, finally found it in a heap to the side. My friend traveling Air Canada had no trouble same day same time."
Pros: "Food was good. Full dinner and breakfast"
Cons: "Made us get off the plane in Azores but would not let us in to shops and cafe. Meal not served till 11pm. Seats very narrow."
Cons: "The 12 hour delay without being told why. We would be told we would leave at a certain time and then it was cancelled, told a different time and it was cancelled, and told again, etc was suppose to be in Lisbon in the morning, arrived in Lisbon near midnight."
Pros: "The flight left on time, flight attendants were friendly, some options on the TV (better than none)"
Cons: "Not much offered on the TV entertainment systems. The food was pretty bad. Otherwise the flight was fine."
Pros: "Happy for the incoming Barcelona passengers to make this flight. Ticket agent told us how to snag a couple of free seats, once everyone on board, so we could stretch out for 5 hr. flight. They serve brewed tea!"
Cons: "One hour late departing made for an extra long day of traveling. Be prepared for boarding a bus at gate to get to plane."
Pros: "serves wine for free."
Cons: "No entertainment, seats are extremely small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food improved from our first overnight experience"
Cons: "No entertainment, some crew members wee rude and messy (spilling food/drink and unapologetic) where others were exceptional. Limited places to sit in between flights at gate (had to depart plane and reload even though we had same exact plane/seats)"
Pros: "On time flight , friendly service overall all great"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and it was a direct flight"
Cons: "There was very little room in the seats. It was terribly uncomfortable and made worse when the seat in front was declined"
Pros: "Everything ok"
Pros: "Price, friendly crew"
Cons: "jammed in and not too comfy seats"
Cons: "Major delay caused major inconvenience for a senior in her 70's traveling alone."
Pros: "We arrived safely. Which is most important. However..."
Cons: "Everything. This airline is the bare minimum. No TV's, no WIFI, uncomfortable seats, no leg room, NO AIR VENT, narrow isles, unfriendly flight attendants... Should I continue? There are no amenities with this airline. It's like stepping back in time... Worst airline I have ever flown!"
