Cons: "Business class food is a disgrace. On the way to Lisbon they had at least some warm meal, skipped now and just got a box with bad, cold food. The crew was apologetic."
Pros: "The extra legroom in the Classic Package Seats."
Cons: "The snacks where a little on the dull tasteless side."
Pros: "Yes, it was comfortable and they r nice."
Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"
Pros: "New plane, great seating."
Cons: "Food should be tastier and boarding should be more efficient and on time."
Pros: "Service and the price!"
Cons: "Lots of things but I’m sure TAP it’s working on this!"
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I have taken in a very very long time. The ride was smooth but the seat was so terribly uncomfortable. I was in pain on arrival."
Cons: "Somehow, ticket was not being accepted to board on TAP's flight. Crew had to manually check it"
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: "On time flight, good service"
Cons: "Long wait for deposit luggage . Food could be much better."
Cons: "They took an extremely long time clearing away the dirty dinner trays, which meant that the tray table had to be down. This made it near impossible to get up to use the restroom or to stretch."
Cons: "Not enough space for hand luhggage. Changed gate very short before boarding. No gluten free meal available on board."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"
Pros: "clean and fast"
Cons: "use airport finger in Lisbon airport"
Pros: "airlines could have mentioned that the second leg would require going thru security again and would take a very long time and that I should do this immediately after disembarking even though a gate had not yet been assigned. As A consequence of an intensive interview process before boarding the international leg of the trip (initially only two reps processing everyone on the plane for a few minutes each) the plane left the gate late. It also lost another 15 -20 minutes in flight making it 30 minutes late and I missed my connection in Miami necessitating me to spend a night in a motel and finish my flight the next day."
Cons: "Had the crew enabled me to be first off the plane I would have made the connection but I lost an additional 20-25 minutes being seated in the rear of the plane"
Cons: "No entertainment, either video or audio."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "When TAP couldn’t get me to Lisbon in time to make my connection they added a flight to Madrid where I waited until 16:00 to fly to Seville. I talked to several TAP representatives and none were helpful or apologetic and they offered me nothing for the problems they caused. I missed my only day in Seville due to this. This trip turned out to be a disaster."
Pros: "great seats, great egg tarts and easy check in"
Cons: "No vegan food options. Filthy toilet"
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."
Cons: "They charge $100 to check a bag. Never again."
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: "Friendly and helpful crew. Great food."
Pros: "No power @ seats. No Internet, no spirits just wine and beer. seats are not padded enough for 7 hour flight.. Old equip."
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: "Seats felt smaller than most international flights"
Pros: "The crew and the service."
Cons: "The food - horrible... My TV did not work the entire trip."
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: "In the air excellent"
Cons: "On the ground, poor communication"
Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "Kosher food was poor. They need a different supplier and better food for their business class customers."
Cons: "Flight Washington delayed. Airport about closes upon Arrival!"
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: "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"
Pros: "Some random charter flight with a 1960sBoeing. Although the ticket said TAP. Definitely wasn't"
Pros: "No reason given, just wouldn't let me check in online."
Cons: "Smooth flight food pilotes"
Cons: "Passenger attention not he best"
Cons: "Limited leg room."
Cons: "y extra bag cost more than my ticket. I should have just bought another ticket but was too flustered"
Cons: "Paid $130 for 2 extra spac s acts. Didn't have any extra space. Had a woman in front of me who reclined her seat all the way for he whole flight. Had to have on of he crew to ask her to put her sat forward for the food service part of th flight."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Pros: "Not much. Lunch"
Cons: "We paid to check the bag In and when we arrived the girl could not see this. We showed her clearly the paper then she charged ya and realised she had made a mistake but couldn't refund us. Terrible experience. Don't use the."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. It hurt my back."
Cons: "Being sat in a middle seat. With that being said, it was OK. No problems."
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Cons: "You can't watch a movie you want to. The channels are set, like tv, can't rewind or pause"
Cons: "NO Options for vegetarians. main curse and snacks were with meat. SANDWITCH WITH MEAT"
Pros: "The extra leg room in economy. The excellent typical but gourmet Portuguese food, especially the 2 appetizers plus main course."
Pros: "Seats were spacious. TVs on the flight with lots of movies and TV shows. No delays, great service. Highly recommend it!"
My screen didn’t work at my seat. Communication at Toronto airport between the two flights was non-existent. We were not given TSA precheck, we weren’t told we were going through US customs in Toronto, we were given instructions like go into that room and sit down. Really, really poor quality airport. Walkways were turned off, poor air conditioning, lack of food services, etc. I will try to avoid Toronto airport in future travels.
Cons: "A delay of 28hrs is never positive. I haven’t been able to get my United points either since I was rerouted to SFO. When claiming them the system says that I never boarded the flight to EWR and completely ignore the YYZ - SFO flight. Mediocre overall."
Cons: "At the time at the gate did not allowed me even take my caryon bag with me, the staff was so rude an in an uncivilized manner start fighting with me ,I am a sinor person got very disrespected by your staff, I would like to bring a lawsuit against UA for what you did to me ,I wish an invitator from your office contantact me to explain everything,"
Cons: "Gate not ready on arrival."
Pros: "Premium seating was worth it! I actually had room to sleep and the service was great."
Cons: "Toronto's airport did not send our bags onto or flight, which I had to wait 8 hours for them to send it to my hotel. Plus, the boarding process was crazy. So many people waiting in front of the lines for them to be called. Luckily, an attendant was calling out for premium. He guided us"
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Working on flight schedule to be more precise! Delayed!"
Cons: "At YYZ @ the wheel chair entrance, I visibly required wheel chair assistance. I approached the United INFO COUNTER and requested wheel chair assistance. She advised me to get into a long Q and after check in they will get me a wheel. chair. TSA is no greater help for your air line."
Cons: "4 different flight delays in chicago"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Plane was small and uncomfortable. The plane was again delayed. 4 flights with United. ALL 4 delayed."
Pros: "Everything was great. On time, great room, pleasant staff!!!"
Pros: "Not much to like. The flight was okay."
Cons: "Not having free Wi-Fi and sound on the entertainment.I We could have been offered complimentary snacks as well with the beverage."
Cons: "Food was 100% carbohydrate. Not a trace of greens or protein. Our party was split up even though reservations were made long in advance. Codeshare on Air Canada"
Pros: "Quick flight - happy crew - United rocks!"
Cons: "Toronto Airport needs to get their act together. This is twice now that there were two Star Alliance flights to Denver at roughly the same time - United and Air Canada - miles apart in the terminal. Yet only the Air Canada one was on the flight board. I. Er half the flight walked to F64 and then had to run to F97. Shoddy."
Pros: "It was on time and the staff were excellent"
Cons: "Like everything"
Cons: "If they know that the flight is about to delayed then they must wait for the passengers for connecting flights!"
Cons: "Cannot gauge if carry-on would fit into overhead No entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was very small and crammed"
Pros: "comfortable and on time"
Pros: "Fantastic service. Much obliged for everything"
Pros: "I didn't like nothing"
Cons: "United needs to training your employees"
Pros: "Crews were great"
Cons: "Seat cushions were old and hard to sit on in excess of an hour. The don't look worn out, but certainly no one is asking. Not very comfortable for a four hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was curteous and capable"
Cons: "The screens on the back of seats that used to play movies now play advertisements and ask you to pay for in-flight entertainment. The off button did not turn the screen off, resulting in a constant eyesore for the entire trip"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "2 Delays"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Before we boarded but then once we boarded we Sat for another hour."
Cons: "I don't fully understand why, but I was unable to get my boarding pass for my flight to Chicago from Toronto until I arrived in the Toronto airport. Toronto airport sequesters off international arrivals, so in an ideal world, I would have been able to go through security directly to into the U.S. terminal, bypassing Canada customs. However, the United desk that I needed to get my boarding pass from located just before security was unmanned. The very kind Air Canada attendant called for a representative multiple times, but after 45 minutes of waiting no one ever arrived to print my boarding pass for me. The Air Canada employee then gave up on any United staff showing up and suggested I try going through Canadian customs and checking in at the same departure desk travelers first entering the airport would go through and make sure to let them know how long I was waiting. The United employee I spoke with told me that I was impatient and should have continued waiting because now she didn't know what would happen with my checked bag and that I may well need to wait 2 hours more for that to get sorted out. I was rather surprised by her overly negative response and apparent threat. If I was irate or yelling that might have been warranted, but frankly, I was so tired from the international travel I didn't have the energy to fight with her. Regardless, I wish I had been more impatient, it was far easier to go through customs twice than I expected. I would have preferred to spend more time in the lounge inside the terminal than to stand by the United desk waiting for someone to arrive to print my boarding pass. At any rate, Canadian+US customs have it together; when I went through U.S. customs to get into the terminal they had the photo of my checked bag right there."
Pros: "My complaint with United is twofold: extremely poor customer service and airport experience. First, the plane was delayed Then cancelled took customer service 50 minuets to rebooked on a new flight to sfo instead Sjc which is far away from my house & I paid for CAB!!"
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "They delayed my flight, so now I get back home really late. Thanks, United."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding was easy."
Cons: "I wasn't informed when I booked that the flight was operated by Air Canda's budget variant, rouge, and not Air Canda as was listed on Kayak. I had no option to select seats, and when we boarded I was seated on the last row by the galley with no reclining seats and the florescent lights were on nearly the whole time on a 10 hour overnight flight. There are no seat back TVs and the free streaming service went down repeatedly just like the AC outlet at our seats (there are only two of these for three people). I booked this trip nearly a year in advance, and I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't informed that I was flying a budget airline on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "I like that we landed."
Cons: "This box seems too small to fit it all in. It's United - underwhelmed as usual."
Pros: "united over book. i got boarding pass but no seat number. United charge me $400. I want me money back."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could"
Cons: "4 hour weather delay; missed all connecting flights; spent night in O'Hare; no food at night; no vegan food; got home 12 hours later than planned with little no sleep."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and uncomfortable. And we never pushed pack on time for all my flights"
Cons: "Incredible long walk passengers should be told when you have such a distance to walk. Passport sign in is not very user friendly should be a better scanner and easier questions they are confusing"
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "They kept delaying this flight but not telling us. First it was delayed to 6:50; at 6:51 I asked whether it was further delayed and was told no, we were about to board. Five minutes later the screen said 7:15 (and later, 7:35); at no point was there any announcement about these further delays. They then stowed carry-on luggage below, so passengers lost access to any entertainment in their carry-on. There was no entertainment on board."
Pros: "Staff were helpful, the flight took off on time and the trip was smooth."
Cons: "No complaints on any front."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised when they announced those with large carry ons could get tagged and pick up at final destination."
Cons: "The distance between arriving gates and departure."
Cons: "Didn't hold our seats! Made it with ten minutes to spare, but sold our tickets when they could of called and said three passengers are on their way over!!!! Instead made a little more money!!!!"
Pros: "Sitting in the flight on the Tarmac for over 2 hours is a terrible experience"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was OK. I would not write home and brag to my friends about it ..."
Cons: "There is good business between Toronto and Halifax; why must you use the smallest aircraft you can find? Use a larger aircraft and fly it fewer times per day."
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""
Pros: "Always the service is above and beyond"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I paid for business and there were no TVs or any entertainments from Portugal to Boston on Airbus 321. The seats barely reclined so basically I was charged for business and got a premium economy seat. They do not have a business section, never flying with them again."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could"
Cons: "We flew near hurricane Lorenzo and the flight was the bumpiest I’ve ever had"
Pros: "Clean plane and friendly crew. Excellent landing."
Cons: "No entertainment system. SATA internet did not work"
Cons: "Took off late missed my connecting flight and they lost my luggage and claim process is taking for ever"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Appreciate the meal and service good flight"
Cons: "Made us ship our carry on bags which we didn’t appreciate ! Even boarding early ! Did not being packed in busses then made to wait both at terminal and plane for long periods !"
Cons: "Do not exit anymore"
Pros: "Tight seats, but freee wine makes up for it!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Or difficult to access."
Cons: "My brain new luggage was very badly damaged"
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: "There were 2 other couples in the situation described above. We waited in line and got to the agent first, but upon realizing he had more than one couple in our situation, he agreed to help us all as a group. He gave us our tickets for the new flights one by one. When we got onto the aircraft we realized that we were in the far rear of the plane and the two couples (4 tickets) BEHIND us in the original line were given tickets in the business class portion of the plane, all the way in front. We were seated between two screaming babies and their parents, cramped in an aisle and middle seat. When I originally booked the reservation, I had paid extra money for the seats we preferred. Our new flight gave us the worst seats on the plane while giving the couples behind us in line the best."
Cons: "Expect major delays ."
Pros: "All the expectations are met: on time, professional staff, average comfort, ok food."
Cons: "Rowdy older passengers"
Pros: "very friendly airline...thank you."
Pros: "The crew were very kind very professional"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food and free wine."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they charge extra for seating next to each other."
Pros: "Everything was on time. Good flight."
Cons: "My seat was broken and would not stay in upright position. They took too long to serve dinner."
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."
Pros: "Flight staff was professional, vegan meal was decent, good leg room"
Cons: "Seats were fairly hard and uncomfortable for a long flight"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and comfortable."
Cons: "There is no in- flight entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hrs; boarding agent couldn't give any details (meanwhile me kids are screaming); seats were narrow and I couldn't lift the armrest up out of the way. Food was terrible. No entertainment visible from our seats and the headphones didn't work. Flight from BOS was much of the same. NEVER FLYING SATA AGAIN!"
Cons: "Airline was 2 hours late and missed our connection which made us miss our first port for our cruise we then had to make other arrangements while the airline did nothing to help. I would NEVER FLY with them again."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The process of checking in for this flight was horrendous. First of all, I was planning to carry on my bags and check in online. However, the online system wouldn't let me print my boarding pass, so I had no option but to wait in line at the airport. I arrived over 2 hours before my flight, and the scene was jaw dropping. The line to check in on Azores Airlines wrapped all the way around the terminal and was divided into three separate sections so that people could continue pass through the airport. There was no Azores Airlines staff to be found to provide directions or manage the situation, so people kept going into the wrong lines not knowing what the heck was going on. It actually turned out several people had waited in line for an hour for a different flight before realizing they were in the wrong line. Anyways, after a mind-numbing, almost two hour wait, I checked in and went to my gate. The whole flight was delayed since the check-in was so slow. I have no idea what the cause of such a terrible check-in line was, but the Azores Airlines management at the Providence Airport are definitely doing something wrong, and I will avoid flying from there again at all costs!"
Cons: "It was seven hours delay. What do you think about that?"
Pros: "The crew were nice and the food was free."
Cons: "The airline staff struggled to get the check-in line going. The agent checking us in had no clue about our itinerary, for example, to tell us that we were changing planes in the Azores, AND - really important - making sure we had the boarding passes to do so. Food was really lame (I know, we're lucky they gave us any, right) and there was no in-flight wifi or entertainment."
Pros: "Quick Easy check in, great flight and staff!"
Pros: "Crew members were O.K."
Cons: "- There are no more direct flights into Terceira (coming from the U.S.A.) which is ridiculous!!! - Both flights were delayed. The one from Boston to São Miguel was delayed 4 hours. The flight from São Miguel to Terceira was delayed in 30 minutes. - As if the delay wasn't enough, we had to return to gate as the plane prepared for takeoff because of technical problems. SATA (Azorean Airlines) international planes are too old..."
Pros: "The flight crew runs an extremely tight ship. Polished and attentive."
Cons: "We arrived to the check in queue 90 min before our flight and it took almost two hours to get through the line. Our seats got swapped and it was a cluster to make it to the gate where we then waited another 45 min for a later departure."
Cons: "Way too warm, uncomfortable seats, no entertainment"
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."
Cons: "Long delay, no apologies, uncomfortable all around"
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Check-in process was unusually slow and the flight took off 30 minutes late."
Cons: "DELAYS, BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE, NO ACCOUNTABILITY."
Cons: "Long delay not on time"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours. The movie was horrible. No ones speakers worked. Serive was fine"
Pros: "Smooth ride. The pilot communicated well. Food/drinks were good. Airline stewards were polite."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized"
Pros: "everithing is good"
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."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Very very very budget. Old aircraft, poor service, overall negative experience."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped, small and poor. The staff was unresponsive. The lights were on all night (red eye!) and the meal service was unnecessary (12 midnight?!)."
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."
Cons: "Ponta Delgada ground staff misguided us with less than 30 min to catch connecting flight..."
Pros: "serves wine for free."
Cons: "No entertainment, seats are extremely small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was a economical flight. The food was pretty good as well."
Cons: "We had changes to pretty much every leg of our flights. One was delayed by 2.5 hours. I understand that flights get delayed but they hardly gave us any information as to what was going on. The flight was pretty smooth but the flight attendants didn't seem interested in our comfort. They weren't rude but they weren't pleasant either. I guess I'm used to a different style of service that I did not receive on Azores."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was courteous."
Cons: "Food was average. No entertainment."
Pros: "Price, friendly service"
Cons: "packed in like sardines"
Pros: "Earlier TAP flight was late and caused me to miss my connecting flights."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled because TAP flight was 2 hours late in picking me up."
Pros: "The a330 was nice, seats had a good incline and cabin crew was very accommodating and friendly to me."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work at all Food was bland, but somewhat on par with American carriers (low bar). But the ticket was pretty cheap. Very cold"
