Airlines need to do more to help travellers with quick connections get off the plane first. Why do they board planes from the front? It makes more sense to start the boarding from the back.
It was awesome experience
Not having 2hr delays would be great
The staff at Frankfurt were incredibly rude telling passengers “I don’t have time for you”. I’ve never had a worse experience than with the ground staff Lufthansa in Frankfurt. Avoid at all costs.
Pros: "the crew were amazing. The food was good. 20 minutes late in a snowstorm, amazing. Seats were comfortable. I will definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Seat was both comfortable and spacious. Crew were very attentive and personable."
Cons: "Really great flight. Can’t say enough about it."
Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."
Cons: "A delay due to an electrical storm prevented us from taking off for over an hour which we had to wait to end on the plane."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "New planes have 9 sits in the rove (economy class) which affects the passengers comfort."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were geat and a great distraction from the seating arrangement and the horrible leg area."
Cons: "Not having a chair leg in the middle of the leg area. being able to sit next to my partner instead of having us split up. If we bought two tickets at the same time we should have been able to sit together. Lastly the huge delay that caused us to miss are final flight."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Top notch service and care."
Cons: "Lufthansa business class in the 747 is dated and not the most comfortable. No pods and privacy. Entraînement system at my seat was defective"
Pros: "very good on-board service , good LH crew while checking in i got an upgrade to premium economy very good food ....quite surprised easy check-in , no problem with suitcase that was a bit overweight"
Cons: "arriving in toronto , arrival gate at pearson was blocked by another plane ...so despite being a few minutes early , arrival at the terminal was finally 20min later than scheduled"
Pros: "The agent worked hard to find us another flight to rome"
Cons: "Our plane sat on turnac in Toronto waiting for a parking gate for 30minutes making us miss our connecting flight. Finally arrived but missed our train to Florence had to stay Saturday night in Rome while our villa in Lucca sat empty which was paid for"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and so welcoming! They did not flinch when they saw my three-year-old son and went out their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It was very nice to be greeted with such hospitality!"
Pros: "Food quality was good, and movies had a great selection. Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "We did not request special meals because in the past there has always been an option without cheese. For both legs of the trip, everything had cheese. They tasted great, but left my husband eating only bread. At the first meal the crew just shrugged their shoulders. Second meal they brought him a snack from business class, but it had cream cheese on the sandwich. Drinks were only served during the meals on an 8 hour flight. When crew came back through at the first meal, they only had two bottles of wine in hand offering top offs (no cart, just physically carrying the bottles). We do not drink alcohol. During the second meal I did not even see them offering the top offs. All other airlines have at least come through a couple of times offering water or soda. Announcements were only audible half the time. Customs forms were confusing for people passing through Canada. This might have been explained over the intercom, but again, it was hard to hear."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff!"
Cons: "It was very cold"
Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
Pros: "The crew was organized and very polite. Even if it was a bit of delay the plane made it in time and luggage was readily available"
Cons: "One thing that everyone was complaining about was the temperature . It was very cold and nobody anted to do anything about it. Another thing that I found unwise was the entertainment. It was a large selection of movies with very explicit sexual content. I didn't travel with kids but I was thinking what I would've done if my kids were seated next to a person like I did who was watching this kind of movies.."
Pros: "I enjoy that their planes have more space, the food is delicious, and their caring and kind attitudes all through the experience!"
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was not working properly and kept stopping and would have to be reset."
Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"
Pros: "New planes, friendly staff, decent space even for economy, great food"
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was respectful and helpful."
Cons: "I couldn't get my tablet to work with the headphones. In order to watch and hear anything, I had to hold my headphones with a certain pressure and frequently spin the headphones in order to hear anything."
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Pros: "There was good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The food was barely edible. I'm glad to have brought a snack in my bag."
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Pros: "Very pleasant experience: comfortable airplane and helpful crew, timely departure/arrival, continuing support with information about baggage after arrival."
Pros: "I flew economy. Good plane, ok food, frequent meals, good coffee, free beers and wine, best flight crew I've ever had."
Cons: "economy: The chairs were ok but I've had better ones."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was flown through Air Canada, so this review doesn't reflect on other hosts. However the flight was the worst service I've ever had on an airline in every category."
Pros: "Entertainment system, food. Crew was great."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and artival to YYZ"
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "The crew was professional and cordial. For some reason the entire AV system needed to be rebooted which required at least 15 minutes."
Cons: "There was supposed to be a meal and a snack on this flight. There was a good meal but the "snack" was a pack of pretzels. I think Lufthansa's partner AC could do a little better. I think the drinks cart should precede the food cart. I did not receive my drink until 3/4 of the way through my meal."
Cons: "Not enough leg room I am 6ft 3 tall"
Cons: "Gate distances were too far away and passport control in Munich is not organized"
Pros: "The price was good and connections were well-timed. Lufthansa had great food and service. A glass of pear brandy after dinner? Yes, please! I've seen a few other negative reviews for Lufthansa, but I've always had great experiences with them. The crew and food are top-notch."
Cons: "We had two legs on Lufthansa and the third was Air Canada. Lufthansa was great; great service, great food. But on Air Canada there was no food on a 5-hr international flight, the video screen didn't work well, and the flight attendant was having a rough day. And we took off at least 30 minutes late due to a couple of technical issues."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Pros: "That there was a flight from Toronto to Minneapolis."
Cons: "It was really cramped and small. The gate was far away from everything and cold."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Pros: "The flight attendance were nice."
Cons: "One of worst EU to US flights ever. Food was Ick, entertainment?? (even if you paid for the premium the choices were bad)."
Cons: "We missed this connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "Attendents were very warm and friendly. The pillow, blanket, water and headphones at the seat were a nice welcome."
Cons: "No reading light that I could control."
Pros: "The upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
Pros: "Crew did their best."
Cons: "I'm writing this from the plane I'm still on because they didn't have anyone on shift to work the jetway. We've been on the ground for half an hour. Just a completely avoidable annoyance they didn't bother to avoid."
Pros: "It was all very standard- crew was nice, plenty of food"
Cons: "the system for checking bags at Paris CDG was really bad. The Kiosks to print bag tags were really hard to use - esp for older folks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled. Still not to Vancouver. Wasted a whole day traveling, about 19 hours due to delay, canceling and try to get rebooked. West Jet does not run on time."
Pros: "Everything was great!! Thanks so much!!"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "We could have used more legroom between the seats."
Pros: "The plane was nice and quiet, and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "It was so cold!!"

Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The staff insisted on putting bags underneath seats for a 13 hours flight..."
Cons: "For customers without hand held devices, there are no options for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Pleasant Staff Great flight"
Cons: "that i paid to get a seat next to my brother and the plane was not full and people got to sit where they liked. it cost me more money for nothing."
Pros: "I received great service and the flights were on time."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very kind. It was a quick trip with no hiccups"
Cons: "Nothing really to note. It was a straight forward process."
Cons: "Head crew person was lazy and bad attitude. The rest were very good"
Pros: "An uneventful and comfortable trip, well.. as comfortable as any aircraft gets :)"
Pros: "Good legroom compared to other carriers"
Cons: "Almost 1 hour late leaving. No westjet connect, so no entertainment."
Pros: "Everything. Extremely polite flight attendants Clean plane Great service"
Pros: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"
Cons: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus - it was great."
Cons: "Too bad we have to pay extra for Plus to get a reasonable amount of room."
Pros: "Flight was on time, newer 737"
Cons: "Yellowknife security was extremely slow - almost to the point of causing flight delays. I usually get to the airport early but this time I was on a flight arriving slightly late in Yellowknife so had a tight connection and ended up at the back of a huge lineup."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Was boarding at C70 but only saw signs for 71 and C73. Asked Westjet staff where we were boarding and they told me (and others) that even though we were booked to take off from C70 we’d be departing from the gate labeled C73 and also labeled for a flight to Regina. Still got to Hamilton though."
Pros: "It was a quiet flight. Quick loading. Got to sit with my friends."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Less leg space, price of bags to high, too many people bring on over-sized carry on taking up all the overhead bins. No entertainment options for flight"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and funny"
Cons: "Everything was up to my standard"
Cons: "It did not happen. Being transfered to air canada in Toronto was a night mare"
Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"
Cons: "WestJet informed us Kayak did not pay them the funds they took from me on 11/26 and 1 had to pay for full price for the day to fly out. So kayak owes me $500"
Pros: "I love this direct flight from Palm Springs to Winnipeg Thank you WestJet"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Waiting. But not West Jet:s fault.Winfy in LGA. Snow on the ground in YYZ."
Pros: "The plane was less busy so many people had an empty seat next to them. It was great for leg room and I slept the whole flight!"
Pros: "The flight and crew were great, great flight. Arrived earlier then stated. I still enjoy flying in and out of Hamilton. Great airport. If I can book West jet again, I will, great airline. Took some great pictures from the aircraft. Thank you !!!!"
Cons: "Security, too much, even when we arrived, customs twice."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Food v"

Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."
Pros: "I flew through the air in a metal container across the country in the time it would have taken me to drive 400 km, so that's pretty neat."
Cons: "Provide complimentary movies West Jet. Parading around tablets to rent for $6 is a bad look."
Pros: "Crew were all very welcoming and polite"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were pretty pricey."
Pros: "The crew and staff were great on the plane. Could use more staff at the checked bags area but overall good experience"
Cons: "More agents at the check in desk"
Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."
Cons: "I was able to download the WestJet Connect app on my phone which gives you access to tv shows and movies to watch on your own device during the flight. The app was free and easy to use and there was a decent selection. However, the wifi on board is not free so even though you could watch the tv show/movie - the sound did not work unless you paid for it. There are many other airlines that offers everything for free - it would have been a more pleasant if we were able to actually utilize the service."
Pros: "Smooth flight, food wasn't to bad either"
Cons: "The amount of juice or drink you get could be a bit more"
Pros: "Great crew, West jet connect worked fabulously"
Cons: "Cramped space and airplane food"
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"
Pros: "We got some extra help in the airport :). Thanx"
Pros: "Everything was good Quick easy boarding Friendly air crew Love Westjet!!"
Cons: "Crew dealt with a rather large passenger who wanted to upgrade to a larger seat. He had done so before on westjet but was told the option wasnt available once he had boarded. I thought the flight attendant crew chief who deal with him was rude and did not display any creative thinking to addtess this very uncomfortable passengers request."
Pros: "The food was great—snacks, meals, drinks—all complimentary!"
Pros: "The crew provided the best service I think I’ve ever gotten on a flight. Attentive and friendly!"
Cons: "More open counters for the plethora of people trying to check in. Started the trip off with frustration"
Pros: "Great crew. BA lounge at Heathrow excellent."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours due to technical issues. BA for a new plane but unfortunately still 4 hours late leaving Heathrow."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and I was very pleased with flight experience from beginning to end"
Cons: "steak was dry. lite lunch was very salty shrimp"
Cons: "The food was okay. The sandwich towards the end of the flight was not very good at all."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Pros: "British Air reps took us through security and to the gate for boarding which was most appreciated after our check-in. Once on the plane the flight was great and the crew helpful. I wheel chair was waiting for us when we landed in London."
Cons: "We were told to check in at terminal 2A to British Air for our flight. BA was on the lower floor almost in terminal 2B and there were no signs indicating where we were to find their check-in. When we checked in they initially had no record of our continuing flight on Virgin Atlantic to the US. They checked our bags through to the US but could not give us boarding cards for the 2nd leg of our flight on Virgin."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "My baggage couldn't be checked straight through to the states. Had to pick up bags, go through security again, which limited time spent in the airport to enjoy duty free shopping etc. Baggage allowances were different between British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, which necessitated checking out carry on bags. The gate agent was accommodating and checked them at no charge, but that could have been an expensive proposition if she wasn't perceptive. All food and drinks on this flight are for purchase vs. complimentary"
Pros: "The boarding agent did not allow my traveling companion on Till the very last moment because of the size of his backpack. He this was our seventh plane ride in two weeks and nobody else has given us a problem.. After 10 days on the Camino DeSantiago the extra stress was not welcome.. Also short trip with the no there for each service was disappointing. Didn’t see a whole lot of the crew. It was if they were taking a break the entire time."
Cons: "The amount of carry-on and size should not have been an issue with backpacks. They fit perfectly into the overhead compartments. Plus a snack and beverage service would have been nice"
Pros: "I got free juice and a snack, almost unheard of nowadays!"
Cons: "I don't know what happened. Check-in took almost an hour. Usually it only takes 10 or 15 minutes. I am glad that I got to the airport 2 hours a head of time."
Pros: "Not much. Eventually got to where we were going."
Cons: "I can't remember a more cramped and uncomfortable flight. Missed connection on way Paris and we arrived 6 hours late. It took British airways 3 days to get our lost luggage to us. Delayed on way back, adding 4 hours to our trip because the first plane was not "serviceable" and they had to get a replacement. They arbitrarily decide who has to much carry on luggage and force you to check it last minute at the gate while letting others with same size bags take them on the plane. Certainly no better than bargain flights and possibly worse. Why pay extra? No more British Airways for us."
Pros: "Plenty food. Very well looked after by the crew. Lots of good movies."
Cons: "Some of the screens had a scratches on them."
Pros: "Once again, British Air provided excellent service and friendly staff for our flight from London to Boston. The Paris to London crew was not as accommodating and there were difficulties with language barriers in CDG."
Pros: "British Airways has definitely got their act together it was a brilliant flight and the service was excellent it was a pleasure to see."
Pros: "The food and the services. The plane looks new and clean. Many new release movies."
Cons: "seat space is too small and not comfort."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The service was bad"
Pros: "Your teammates, Fatou and Sarah at the check in desk in charles de gaulle made our lives doo easy after a stressful and ling journey. Their kind service and forethought helped us a lot."
Cons: "BA's poor customer service team who don't explain extra baagge charges correctly and don't have the decency to say they were in the wrong for not dealing with my issue correctly ans giving the run around"
Pros: "It flies"
Cons: "No courtesy! At least soft drinks ought to be on the house - they even charge for water - disgusting compared to US airless that at least offer you nuts and a drink for free! BA is now in the EasyJet-RyanAir league! Awful!"
Cons: "There was no food."
Cons: "Couldn't take the flight because I was not allowed to check a bag. No mention of this was made when I booked."
Pros: "Arrived early, earned oneworld status points."
Cons: "BA are a budget airline charging premium prices."
Cons: "Did not hear a warning for additional, strict security screening and lines at Heathrow. Had only 1h 5m layover, barely made my connection."
Cons: "Our flights were sold as British airways but operated by American Airlines. Yes, we flew economy and we were expecting small seats, but these seats felt extremely small. They pack so many seats into the space that there is no comfort at all in flying. It was a complete let down. Food was an improvement from our flight from LAX To CDG, but if was only mediocre at best. I really expected this flight to be better than those I've taken with Vueling, Iberia and Virgin but it was terribly disappointing. I would think twice before purchasing a ticket with this airline again."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."
Pros: "Nothing. British Airways refused to help us"
Cons: "Took over two hours on the phone to try and get rebooked. Missed the last flight out of the night due to incompetence. British Airways desk check in staff was so rude, wouldn't even talk to us. Thank goodness for the helpful Air Canada grind crew in Toronto."
Pros: "Overall quick, easy and event free...just as flights should be."
Cons: "Plane got a little hot sitting at the gate and our seats were the only ones that didn't have air vents."
Pros: "The staff very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We missed two flights,made it on the third trip.when trying to get some help and information I felt like they were blowing us off ( employees at the airport in Paris) not so much British Airways.The first time we missed the flight it was because we were sent to the wrong gate,and we tried to get information we were told to sit down our plane would be next.We then had to start the process all over again going thru check in and security, proses was so slow we missed the second flight,then I had to go thru the process anion retrieving our bags,going thru check in and security the third time,by the time I got to the gate they were boarding. It was a nightmare and I got to feeling we would never get out of Paris.Not so sure I would want to go to Paris Airport again.? If I would use BA."
Pros: "The flight crew were nice, the flight was over before they could even finish drink service."
Cons: "The seats are too comfortable"
Pros: "The delay in the flight leaving an hour later."
Cons: "The Terminal chsnge. It would be appreciated if additional golf cart transport could be provided between terminals so folks could make connecting Flights."
Pros: "I liked the nice crew. Short flight from Paris and arrived in LHR little early. Even in economy, seats were confortable. The 1.5 hr Flight was very smooth and short."
Cons: "I can't say that there wasn't anything that I didn't like about this particular flight from Paris to London."
Cons: "Whatever the issue was two hours sitting alongside the gate caused issues for everyone onboard the plane and caused us to have to run through the entire airport just to make our connection."
Cons: "Attittude of Ground Staff and difficult to find check in counters at CDG airport"
Pros: "the flight was two hours late and I missed the connection, but it wasn't BA fault. the service at CDG was so, so; service at LHR was much better!"
Pros: "Food was ok - rest was terrible."
Cons: "Boarding was troublesome due to the fact the person made an error and changed my seat that I had already reserved. I noticed this while walking to the gate and then informed the person at the desk. After some time they determined the error happened at check in and she then returned me to the original booked seat. While in the flight, the lady behind me kept kicking my seat and complaining that I should not have the seat leaning back. Of course this is a fully acceptable function of flying in that the seat can be tilted back when not having food - the crew did not help at all and I was forced to fly the whole time with soon being rude behind me."
Pros: "The service was great!"
Cons: "Leg room. I'm very tall."
Pros: "My husband left his wallet on the plane and everybody was extremely helpful...we were able to get it back intact thanks to all of their wonderful Dallas staff!!!"
Pros: "Everything. Service with a smile. Top notch friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "The flight got delayed and I couldn't make it for the connection flight. I waited for 6 hours to rebook the flight and BA booked a hotel 2hours far from the airport by bus... I got to LA a day after but my baggage didn't arrive. I got it back 4DAYS after. All of my experience was just horrible."
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
Pros: "The flight and in flight service was excellent"
Cons: "the rebooking of this flight was terrible, our seats were re booked from British Airways to American Airlines but not ticketed correctly by BA. I had to call airfare.com support four time with no resolution to only end up running from BA back to AA ticket counters only to be met with multiple BA agents that did not take the time to just lookup our flight info correctly. It took multiple time to finally have a BA ticket agent finally correct the issue. Please dont use Airfare.com their support is the worst."
Pros: "Upon arrival, crew could not manage to open the door. Had to wait until technicians were able to arrive and open the door from the outside. As a result, an iffy transfer became disturbing."
Cons: "Transfer between BA and AA terminals was chaotic."
Pros: "Airplane, food and service"
Cons: "AA from Philadelphia to SD charges 8 USD for a terrible red wine"
On a 9 hr flight the entertainment kept having issues and not working for most of the flight. The food was worse than usual. It was a pretty awful flight.
Cons: "I paid Xtraeconomy to have some snacks during the fly, and they end up coming with a trolley to pay! Disappointed!"
Cons: "It was delayed on our way to destination. Also wish it was a direct flight to ponta delgado instead of going through lisbon. It was too much back and forth."
Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Nasty people"
Pros: "The price is affordable"
Pros: "Tap was great for the long flight"
Pros: "Price. Service and food offered in the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process: everyone crowds into the line without regard of the grouping."
Pros: "Left us alone a lot and also not a lot of brainless babbling over the pa. Very nice change from most airlines"
Cons: "The Kayak website sucks"
Pros: "Crew was great and very friendly, and helpful. Was in Business class so not much to complain about, although the headphones were not working properly."
Cons: "The boarding area in Lisbon is very congested and disorganized."
Pros: "THE FLIGHT WAS PLEASANT"
Cons: "I DIDNT LIKE THAT THE TICKET I BOUGHT DIDNT HAVE LUGAGE INCLUDED! I HAD TO PAY 100 EUROS FOR 1 LUGAGE. I COULD BELIEVE A LONG COURSE FLIGHT, A 10 HOURS FLIGHT AND NO LUGAGE! VERY ANOYING!"
Pros: "Food and price"
Cons: "On time departure"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "My family wasn't given a choice on the meal they were given which was hard because most of them don't eat fish (it was codfish). One of the flights was delayed 2 hrs & then didn't take off for 40 mins after the two hours because boarding wasn't started til 10 mins before it was scheduled to takeoff"
Pros: "Nothing stood out. Legroom was ok."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and poorly managed."
Cons: "TAP was late getting the first flight out, offered almost no help and almost left 22 people stranded in Portugal and tried to get us to pay for a new flight at our own expense. Customer service was terrible. Multiple people in line said they had been stranded in Portugal by TAP airlines before."
Pros: "Very efficient and competent crew. Very much like the A330 plane."
Cons: "On our flight from Lisbon to Paris Orly the baggage took two hours become it was delivered. We were later told the baggage crew forgot some of the bags."
Pros: "I would def use this airline again."
Cons: "The only issue was they’re weren’t any outlets to charge your phone or laptop"
Pros: "The crew was generously serving me and the price was more reasonable than any other."
Cons: "I had a huge passenger next to me who took most of my space the whole time during the flight and ended up hurting my neck and back. I understand it had nothing to do with the crew, but not comfortable at all. Besides, there was no entertainment and even outlet available."
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."
Pros: "I liked that the airline provided blankets pillows and headsets at no extra cost for our 8 hour flight. The crew were very nice and accommodating. The food was good."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay 75 Euro for one checked bag. That should Have been more clearly set out when booking a flight. The entertainment could have been better. Poor reception for some shows."
Pros: "Prompt and courteous"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, just not enough space al the way around to be comfortable."
Pros: "Food was of good quality."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. A group of very rowdy passengers who showed zero consideration for their fellow passengers and whom the crew did little or nothing to restrain, other than confiscating a bottle of alcohol they carried on board."
Pros: "Good service, nice meal."
Cons: "No USB ports or movie choices. Entertainment screen very small."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Complimentary wine, meals and movies. We were in Economy Plus so the leg room was quite good."
Cons: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."
Pros: "Excellent layout, excellent service."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The 2 hour turned 3 hour delay. Lack of organizational during check in. Had to show our documents 4 times within 10 meters."
Pros: "Professional and courteous crew from check in the disembarking. Excellent on board food."
Cons: "Entertainment system was wonky throughout most of the seven hour flight."
Cons: "No air conditioning. Lots of apps didn’t work on the entertainment device."
Pros: "I love flying TAP because I love having extended layovers in Lisbon. Lisbon itself, including the airport, is easy to navigate. The food is great and the culture and architecture is gorgeous. For shorter trips TAP doesn't have as many amenities as other airlines, but on this trip the typical video screens with movies, music, etc. was available."
Cons: "In this particular flight there was a male airline attendant who was fabulous and who could speak many languages, including German. I noticed the other airline attendants seemed to be giving him a really hard time and weren't friendly at all. In fact, I rang a bell to ask for attendant help at one point and no one came to help. I was just a seat back from the area where the helpful airline attendant was available. I think that overall TAP flight staff could be a bit more open to being friendly. However, on the ground in Lisbon I've found the staff to be amazingly helpful."
Pros: "The head stewardess was so helpful and nice! I was traveling alone with a 3-month-old baby and was very stressed out. The head stewardess helped me so much, gave me a more comfortable seat, a private place to breastfeed and a bassinet for the baby! She was amazing and I owe her so much for making my experience better. I also received a baby gift package that had a much needed pacifier clip! The flight was also the smoothest flight I've ever had across the Atlantic!"
Cons: "No movie was shown on the shared TV in the first row. Had to only listen to music. Long stressful wait to board."
Cons: "40euro checked bag fee on an international itinerary was an unpleasant surprise. They were quite disorganized; our airport-printed boarding passes wouldn't scan at the gate, they didn't have a jet-way ready upon arrival in Lisbon ..."
Pros: "Service, the way the pilot communicated our delay and the food and beverage"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 7 month old so boarding was made easy by the crew. Most of the crew were quite pleasant during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system hand piece failed so you were unable to select channels, turn the over head light off or ever call for assistance. We had to get another passenger to do that for us. Ultimately the light bulb had to be removed from the fixture. During the flight, we asked for more refreshments and were told we could only have water by a flight attendant. Upon arrival at our destination with a child in hand, our stroller was not unloaded at the gate so we had to carry our child and all that travels with him to the baggage area. For anyone travelling internationally, you will know this is generally quite a distant from the gate in major airports. The strollers and car seats arrived in baggage 30 minutes after the main luggage. When staff were approached they were short and appeared very disinterested in helping. TAP failed on this flight home."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the flight hours."
Pros: "Hot food and real utensils Good entertaining selection Very nice staff"
Cons: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Our flight was DCA to Boston then to Lisbon, with similar return. Our return flight into Boston arrived early enough to allow us to get an earlier flight home but TAP customer service wasn't open until after the earlier flight departed. Also, Jet Blue, the domestic carrier, could not change our flight because it was booked through TAP."
Pros: "I did like the crew and food were great!"
Cons: "I am very unhappy as I paid extra for my seat selection and did not get a window seat. I will be following up about my complaint"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "no service. No drinks even in 1st class. No food. No snacks. No nothing."
Pros: "It was all ok"
Cons: "I took 3 TAP flights while in Europe, and they were always late!"
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "The staff was very nice. Only bad incident was the misinformation on getting the D Tax. We went early to the airport to do it but could not get it because of erroneous information form the check in agent."
Cons: "When we checked our bags the check in agent did not let us take out bags after getting the boarding pass so we could get the D Tax refund at Customs. She said it was not necessary. She was wrong. French customs wanted to see the merchandise which we no longer had. When we complained at TAP we were told do it in Lisbon. Again in Lisbon we could not get the D tax because that custom agent wanted to see the merchandise which was being transferred to our Lisbon - Newark flight. We loss refunds of over $400. This problem ruined a perfect trip."
Pros: "i like the snack they gave."
Pros: "Crew did a good job of keeping their cool when my flight was canceled and merged with another. After 4 hours of delay because the Pope was traveling to the same place we were and having to hand out all new boarding passes to confused and anxious passengers, the crew were always friendly and helpful."
Pros: "They served a sandwich."
Cons: "I flew TAP in sept 2016. It was full service invoked TAP again because of this and then had to pay for a small checked bag at the airport. Also there were a lot of sick people on this flight. Two people near me theew up."
Cons: "Showed up two hours early for flight. Forgot my passport and TAP refused to help us in any way possible. Ended up having to purchase two tickets through another airline. Will never travel with this airline again or recommend this airline."
Cons: "Less meat in the food, please. I somehow missed the opportunity to request a vegetarian meal, but many other airlines offer at least one vegetarian entree option (e.g., pasta)."
Pros: "Love how tap took care of us when hurricane Mathew was passing. We were sent to a nice hotel in Fatima (city in Portugal). The company paid for our lunch dinner and breakfast. Unbelievable customer service."
Pros: "Website, check-in, boarding."
Cons: "Seat pitch"
Flight is very crowded. No distanciation.
Pros: "Staff mixed Qatari and Canadian, did their best"
Cons: "With a sore arm, it was an impossible task to find a cozy position without shap metallic angles protruding."
Pros: "Wasn't able to get my seats ahead of time, but was lucky to be put in an aisle seat."
Cons: "It would be very helpful if the person at the counter would remind International travelers to make sure that they get their VAT receipts stamped at the border/passport agent."
Cons: "Curt and rude"
Pros: "Quality of food served on Paris to Toronto leg was superior to the Toronto to Paris leg"
Cons: "Having to take a bus out to the tarmac and climb stairs on boarding."
Pros: "Space for my legs, good movies and food. Smooth ride. It was my first trip with the airline and i loved it"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 hour to get my bag back. They were having trouble to find it. Because i waited an hour they gave me a $10 voucher to eat at the airport"
Pros: "They did a good job and I enjoyed their touch screen entertainment on the flight. I enjoyed the wine on the flight over and back. I will fly Air Canada again"
Cons: "Nothing, they did a good job"
Pros: "flight was smooth"
Cons: "We basically were left without info about connecting flight! Also priority boarding for passengers with kids should be announced. It's not the job of passengers to ask. Crew could use more friendliness and being more helpful in giving directions especially in flight and for connections. The lady that checked us in was the worst. We gave her boarding passes and passport and after checking she gave them back to me in a disorganized way, I had a toddler and I had to stop and arrange my documents first. She did not even indicate where to keep the strollers. All she cared was to see d face of my toddler, in my effort to get d child up from stroller and turn her around to her, she fell and guess what, this lady did not even react! Unflinching, she just wanted to check d face of my 3 year old in case she is impersonating. That being said, some other staff were very friendly so this is not generalizing all to be same way"
Pros: "The food, wine and service were all great."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there was some extra space....ie empty seats"
Cons: "The flight was 1.5 hours late in departing. Fortunately we just made our connecting flight in time."
Pros: "The bad stuff overshadowed the good stuff. Bad experience."
Cons: "We took off late and never made up for the time lost which resulted in me missing my connection in Denver. Had to be rerouted to Toronto that night and spent night in hotel. Next day, we took off late and that resulted in me missing my connection in Denver... It took me two days instead of one to travel to my last destination. Not happy with Air Canada, three out four flights took off late. I also almost missed my flight in Montreal to go to Paris if it was not for the friendly and helpful Canadian Customs people."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Drop off at the counter was fast and easy on the upper level departure entrance. From my drop off at 9:00 am, I made it thru baggage check-in, passing thru passport control, passing thru security and into the gate duty free area in 25 mins! Impressive experience."
Cons: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."
Pros: "Nice plane, food, staff, entertainment. It was great"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off. We boarded on time but then had to sit and wait in the plane for almost an hour before taking off. We had a connecting flight in Toronto and thankfully made it but some people missed their flights."
Cons: "A totally unremarkable experience. There is no wifi and no extra legroom option. This is a very "economy" level of service for an international flight. Packed in like sardines, offered gross food, hardly anything to entertain you and they literally never stop walking up and down the aisles with carts so good luck going to the bathroom. (that could be said of almost any flight nowadays)."
Pros: "Service and comfort. Friendly and responsive staff"
Cons: "We missed our flight to Minnepolis we got a later flight home. We were tired and disappointed about getting home late. When we got to the gate our plane was still there but they said it was too late to get on but they delayed the plane 10 minutes to take our luggage off. We got a later flight. Not happy."
Pros: "Both planes were nice. Attendants were pleasant. Food and entertaining were great."
Cons: "Flight from Paris to Toronto was delayed 4 hours. That automatically caused us to miss our connecting flight from Toronto to Nashville. The 1st flight turned out to be more than 4 hours late. The 2nd flight was delayed as well. Not to mention we were directed many places throughout the Toronto airport trying to locate a boarding pass for the 2nd flight in hopes to make it to Nashville that day. All members of the Air Canada staff were helpful, however traveling for over 20 hours majority of which was spent in foreign airports made for a long and unpleasant day. It would have been different had it been our fault for being late or missing a flight, but we were very early for our international flights which simply added to the amount of time we had to sit, wait, and hope. A coupon was given to us, however being that I live in a different country I don't know how quick I will be able to redeem this."
Pros: "The plain was new"
Cons: "I asked for a blanket and they told me that they are out of blankets"
Pros: "Food included, beverage and entertainment selection."
Pros: "The Canadian airports are much nicer than the US airports. Things seem to flow better. They are cleaner and have more services than the US. They also have less people. Air Canada is a very good airline. They had schedule issues like any airline, but they handled them well and communicated them well. The staff was friendly and helpful. The meals were very good. Our trip was long, but that was due to our choices. I was very satisfied and highly recommend Air Canada."
Cons: "All the planes are full. Seating is cramped unless you pay a lot for an upgrade. We found connection times tight in Montreal. We had to jog each time to make our connection."
Pros: "The staff at boarding and flight crew very friendly, attentive and efficient. Good fare for return ticket."
Cons: "Food had no taste or imagination."
Cons: "It was late by an hour and I missed my connection. My flight on the way out we sat on the plane an hour and a half. Once the connection was missed they didn't handle things smoothly at all. I could write a book but it will just get me worked up again."
Pros: "We boarded on time and made connecting flight with no issues."
Cons: "My son had no tv monitor (broken?0 the entire trip with no resolution to the issue. We asked flight crew several times to see what could be done and were told they would reset it. We have very little confidence that was done and no other resolution was pursued. The plane was not very clean and the smell of one of the bathrooms was terrible."
Pros: "Food was much better than I've had on a plane in years"
Cons: "touch screen was very finicky"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to late take off from Paris and long wait at customs in Montreal."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The food and the seats were cramp"
Pros: "Air Canada is a wonderful airline for the price!! Seats are comfy staff is excellent. Food is decent."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but what do you expect it's on a airplane."
Pros: "The food was decent and the snack was good too -- a small hot pizza."
Pros: "The flight was delayed long enough that I missed the connection flight but they put me on the earlier flight so I did make the connection"
Pros: "The movie selection and the food was great! The crew was friendly and helpful. The pillows and blanket provided made for a little bit more comfort."
Cons: "The lack of space in the cabin was very uncomfortable. Being arm in arm with strangers is not my idea of a great flight. Flights lasting over 4 hours should really be courteous to those on board."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Pros: "Food was reasonably good, and seat had enough legroom, more than in some airlines I have flown recently."
Cons: "very disorganized. website for checkin was indecipherable. I had to call Air Canada, which charged me for the call (15 centimes per minute) then put me on hold, only to finally learn that I could only check in in person because we were traveling with a pet. --- We paid extra for preferential seating, and when we got to the counter were told that we could not have those seats bcs we were traveling with a pet - the pet was acknowledged on our records and travel documents, yet the company allowed us to sign up for preferential seating, then would not let us access those seats, but our previously reserved window seats were gone and we were assigned aisle and center seats, which were then changed again to other aisle and center seats. --- Half the flights on the departure board, including ours, were delayed, alhto there were no weather problems. Both our plane and the plane in the gate next to where we were waiting had mechanical problems - a coincidence, or a repeated failing?"
Pros: "Entertainment system was awesome. Flight was comfortable. Crew very friendly."
Cons: "Checkin staff at airport was not friendly. Airline cannot allocate seats together even though booking was done months in advance. seriously!!!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the food was good and the in flight entertainment options offered a good variety of recent releases."
Cons: "It was late. Again. Each of my Air Canada flights have been late and boarding was a mess."
Pros: "The movie selection was relatively good."
Cons: "They changed my seat 3 times before I got on the plane (from a window seat to an aisle seat and much farther back on the plane). I didn't complain and got on the plane, only to be told for a forth time (after I had already settled in my seat) that I had to change my seat again, to a middle seat. It was by far the least comfortable seat I have sat in with very little room both in front of and next to me. Nobody should be asked to move like that, especially after choosing my seat online at least three months prior to the flight when I purchased my ticket. Food also not great."
Pros: "The food was good. The flight attendant were helpful and cordial."
Cons: "We had to wit two hours on the tarmac because of a computer error."
Pros: "The fact that there is a way to have on board entertainment but this was clitchy. Hot snack was welcome. Pillows and blankets. Direct flight from Casa."
Cons: "Rude and filthy airline hostess. Having greasy hair and being rude is totally unprofessional. Requesting that a sleeping passenger bring their chair to upright position so that the passenger behind can have a snack? It doesn't make sense.This flight was not full at all and we were strongly urged to check our carry-on due to this. Well they didn't apparently see the fragile sticker as our latern and ceramics were damaged and the bag came out on the main conveyor. Also the door wouldn't open for baggage upon arrival so we were delayed an hour?"
Cons: "I understand that it is the duty of the traveller to figure out the legalities but a little heads up about visa requirements would be nice. I did know I needed a document to transit Canada but their website is absolutely not straight forward in telling you what you need to do. I read there was an exempt till September 2016 and since I was flying before it, I thought I would be fine. While I understand it was my fault for not doing my research, it's the way the airline company handled the situation that incredibly frustrated me. There is no empathy or willingness to help a traveler about to embark on their journey, when they are told they can't board. I didn't know you needed a visa just to transit!! It's just stone cold responses and haughtiness. It's a new rule, cut me some slack! They just pushed me off to a partner airline and I was asked to pay 1500$ for a one way flight. I m getting very frustrated with airlines of late! Customer service sucks. There is no genuine empathy for a person in a bind. It's all about making money and getting you out of the line. I'm just disappointed."
Pros: "Food was decent, beverage service was frequent"
Cons: "Service alarm button is in armrest, dings constantly during flight when people sleep on it"
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and helpful, providing water throughout the flight."
Cons: "AirCanada did not schedule a long enough connection in Montreal. Procedures were not explained well, either. I had to run to my gate to make my connection because it took over an hour for my checked luggage to be approved so that I could go through Customs. I was not the only person who experienced this problem. Several people on my flight missed their connection, and several still waiting when I left were in danger of missing their connection. I have flown on other airlines through other cities internationally and never experienced this type of issue."
Pros: "Leg room was great"
Cons: "I was given someones special meal without knowing then the crew member kept saying to the girl behind me "I think she took it". I was embarrassed to be honest. The girl behind me ended up not eating her last meal because of this mistake lol"
Pros: "Food was fine, staff was professional, flight was quite."
Cons: "The lavatories were unacceptably filthy. There was a puddle on the floor in one of them: Disgusting!"
Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."
Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "All services and most of all excellent customer services."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was excellent and the liquor selection exceeded expectation. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn't give us US customs forms, had to ask, only got one, had to ask again, and then rushed to fill them out and THEN customs threw them out and we had to do everything on the computer. I would think that the crew would be familiar with this process at their home airport and not waste our time. Also, no one could tell us if we would have to go through security again and if we could buy any liquids in Paris duty free to bring home due to the liquid rule and going through security. Just a wildly uninformed airline (asked our crew and other AC officials) they couldn't answer a few simple questions."
Pros: "Crew was good , space was fine"
Cons: "No wifi ?! I couldn't believe you can't buy wifi for the flight ..,"
Cons: "Boarded and departed late. Food was an awful chicken wrap."
