Frankfurt layover at the lounge was good. I would like to commend Tina, the hostess in business class on flight Frankfurt to Delhi. Her service was exceptional warm helpful without a fuss. The gentleman who came to serve me just left without completing the food service. He left without giving me my main course.
There was no special meal on board even though I spent hours on hold to request one!
Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Nice selection of movies in-flight"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "It would have been better had we not had a delay of 50 Minutes"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I will never fly to Europe with anyone else. No joke. Best flying expierence ever."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. From start to finish great time."
Cons: "Great experience."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I’d honestly pay more for childless flights"
Cons: "Best company and the 380 is amazing."
Cons: "Connection time unacceptable with delay in departure from London"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Flights being on time. Friendlier staff. They would t have misplaced my luggage."
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Pros: "Perfect in everything"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket and did not notify me. I found out only when I arrived to check my bag. Lufthansa cancelled my flight because they said I had “no showed” for my previous flight two weeks before. This was absolutely not true."
Pros: "The plane was on time and staff on the plane where nice"
Cons: "Walking from one terminal to terminal was quite a problem. when the staff are checking before you pass through the security after you arrived form Lagos to Frankfurt was quite rude. I had a electronic boarding pass on my phone for some reason the wifi from the airport was slow in allowing my electronic boarding pass to work and the staff was impatience with me and rudely asked me to get off the line."
Cons: "Not sure about booking with flyus. Com- next time I will prefer not to use Kayak if flight is booked through flyus.com"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, the lack of customer service is evident."
Pros: "Short flight, snacks, timely take off and landing."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Navigating very long distance between terminals. Terminal changes"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "The in-seat entertainment center did not work well - it was slow, glitchy, and needed to be rebooted on multiple occasions."
Pros: "the service with lufthansa is great. I always enjoy my flight with lufthansa"
Pros: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"
Cons: "Waited in Luftansa line 9.5 hours to rebook flight after Munich airport shut down for 7 hours. Lufthansa totally unprepared for this situation. Understaffed and unhelpful with directions. Finally got to Los Angeles after 48 hours. Still haven’t gotten luggage 2 days later and no communication on when to expect it."
Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"
Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."
Pros: "Great staff, pleasant flight, nice options on the screen to choose from, etc."
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Pros: "Excellent crew.. very attentive to everyone’s needs. Great movie screens ..large seats .. clean plane .. overall great 8 hour flight"
Cons: "Absolutely unprofessional. Zero courtesy’s & hospitality. Totally untrained ground staff. Will want to file a lawsuit against the airlines."
Cons: "No reason for the cancellation was given. I arrived in Cairo a day late for a 10 day tour I had already paid for which caused major problems for me. I will never fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Some turbulence but that could not be helped"
Cons: "My 6am flight was cancelled while we were waiting in line. No one explained anything. Just went up to desk and I was put on a flight an hour later. But then my bag did not make it I was there in plenty of time to check in. Easy explanation would have helped"
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: "Very good service.."
Pros: "Was on time all the way, food was OK service was fine"
Cons: "I was so cold in my seat I couldn't get comfortable"
Cons: "Very weird flight attendant. Seemed unexperienced and stressed out. Bad vibe from the crew in general."
Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"
Pros: "Great crew, good humor and helpful!"
Cons: "Could have had more beverages served. But to many kids crying & screaming (not crews fault)"
Pros: "Flight crew went above and beyond, great in-flight meals and entertainment. Overall smooth flight."
Cons: "Headrest too high for my short self!"
Cons: "See comments above."
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "The entertainment touch screen system is so much easier to use than the planes that have the remote controls. Having all of the toilets downstairs was nice. It was less noisy and had a little space to stretch. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Even though I was sitting on the left side aisle seat (2-seat section), it was very cramped. I'm only 5'2" and my legs were very uncomfortable. Along with less leg room than other airlines, it felt like the seat itself was narrower too. The food quality control was disappointing. The meal I had on the first leg of my flight (Mumbai-Munich), I noticed that it expired by about 2 weeks. And the complimentary water bottles also had a past expiration date (although, I don't know how water expires). Generally speaking, I think all of the meals I ate on Lufthansa were subpar compared to the many Asian airlines I've used for overseas flights. Quality could be improved and I think there's a missed opportunity to incorporate meal options correlated to the airline or international destinations (German airline, why not bratwurst? Pretzel bread?)"
Pros: "Never made it. Flight overbooked, late connection in. Hours to wait for help. Finally rebooked o arrive over 24 hours late. Hotel an meals provided, no compensation on site."
Pros: "The food was good compare to other airlines & the service is good too. I would like to recomemd.for my friends if they ask me which airline to choice."
Cons: "Check in only before 24hours before the flight is not good enough since so many people are book."
Pros: "The entertainment was good for 8 hours of flight !"
Cons: "I would suggest free Wi-fi for everyone on board not only for business class! And to update the movie list each month! Any chance to have an contract with CNN or Fox News so the people can watch the news during the flight? Live TV?"
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."
Pros: "Good food and beverages"
Cons: "Headphones are terrible"
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."

Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"

Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."

Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"

Could not hear announcements from staff. Luggage in hold was delayed on both legs of trip.
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4+ hours"
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "No vegan food available."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"
Cons: "The best airline what I was flying so far !! Excellent food, drink, comfort seat, free entertainment with great selection."
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Pros: "Nothing !! Such a bullshit flight ever !!!"
Cons: "No tv fo 14 hr long flight !! Flight delayed for 1 he !! No proper arranged to board .. it was kiosk!! Food quality was worse. No space to seat !! Can’t sleep .. no leg space !! Worst fight till the date !!!"
Cons: "We had a short delay"
Cons: "There was no entertainment available."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Pros: "Food and wine. Entertainment."
Cons: "Sat closer to water closet. Maybe more air freshener in there."
Pros: "I really liked my seat, but it was one of the only ones that didn't have a USB port."
Cons: "See above. Overall, very nice experience."
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"
Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Cons: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Pros: "Ground crew at CDG was helpful to file a claim for the lost luggage."
Cons: "Ground crew at MXP Was inexperienced. She called every one in my flight to form a new line and it was immediately total chaos. And then they lost one of our luggages!"
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Easy, fast, comfortable, no hassles"
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Pros: "On time after latish start"
Cons: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"
Cons: "Some toilet facilities out of order and some slow service"
Pros: "Efficient on and off Staff polite and helpful"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Pros: "Párizs Budapest kb 1 óra késés műszaki hiba miatt. egyébként minden rendbe volt."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Losing my luggage after checking it at the gate when volunteers were needed."
Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "food was good, leg room was decent for economy"
Cons: "didn't have usb charging ports in the seats on one of the flights, in flight entertainment can improve."
Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."
Pros: "movies were good, crew was great. Comfy seats. It was really as nice as an economy flight could be."
Cons: "delayed flight, hot overall plane, personal TV malfunctioned a lot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."
Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."
Every thing was just perfect.
My wife and I did not get food. There was no chicken left and we can’t eat pork so we didn’t get food. Crew member didn’t ask ask first but left the pork in our table and after I asked him what it was told that was only pork left I asked him to take back. The only thing we can’t eat is pork and that was the only option. I was shocked for a long flight not to have enough food. Crew member never came back to let us that there is no other food available. After we asked and other crew member he checked and confirmed there is no other food. He offered to share his own meal with my wife and I but we refused but we appreciated that. I hope I never have an other experience like that. It wasn’t a good experience. :(
The price other than that the food was terrible and the staff was rough and unfriendly the comfort was poor not a pleasant experience.
I am seeking a refund from Kayak as LOT refuses to acknowledge the booking when not done directly from their site. Worst experience with an airline ever.
Excellent service and value for the money.
Cons: "The worse experience ever. I booked the flight and then they canceled it, i tried changing the dates but the website was giving me an error so i called them, after being on the phone for 2 hr some guy answered who seemed very tired and not thrilled working for LOT. Rood and not helpful, told me to try FB messenger and online changing again. Failed to get a voucher, refund or change the dates online, was still getting an error. on messenger they answered and told me i can get a voucher, i told them i don't want it and after that they stopped replying all together. good thing i got my money back by filing a dispute with my credit cart company."
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Paid for business class on LOT. Somehow this was delivered on a low cost carrier. Not the same business class product at all, ancient plane, worn seats though they claim to be "new" on this 767. Multiple hours delayed departing, no reason given, and no updates, we just sat there for hours. I assume mechanical. Caused me to miss my connection and here I am having to pay huge for a last minute hotel. Not what was advertised to me which was a LOT flight not a codeshare on an old plane. Booked it through Kayak, will not be doing THAT again."
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Short connection time. Missed my next flight so they send me from Warsaw to Vienna and then to Belgrade. Entertainment screen was freezing every 10 min"
Cons: "2hrs delay. Family members did not sit together."
Pros: "Brand new plane, very smart albeit plasticy and clunky. Professional staff. Very helpful when I had a specific personal request at the booking office. Flight crew were not constantly trying to force us to buy things or making announcements every 5mins like some budget airlines I could name. Flight was 30mins early so no problems there."
Cons: "Warsaw Airport is terrible. Not enough seats in the departure longes. Not enough choice for shops. Not enough toilets for the volume of passengers."
Pros: "Food was great and aircraft was new Fast track lane in WAW was really fast - saved a lot of time"
Cons: "No online checkin offered No lounge offered, even for a fee Luggage was not tagged priority No priority boarding offered Service quality onboard was a bit variable"
Pros: "On-board crew is polite and helpful. Boeing 787 Dreamliner is great. Overall, the flight was fine."
Cons: "The gate agents were forcing random people to check in their hand luggage, even before weighing that luggage. They also check the hand luggage to make sure it fits in the "template" and weigh it (a second time) at the gate. Once on-board, they then announced that they were waiting for other connecting passengers. Took about 45 minutes. It would be nice to know that before booking that they do this, and also before boarding, even if it makes more sense to start boarding before they arrive (but 45 minutes before?). The live map on the public screens in economy showed a dummy/overview map with "waiting for data" the entire flight, rather than the actual live map. Premium did have the data on their screens, and the individual screens also worked fine. Not sure what happened there..."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "At check in the website did not allow me to purchase checked baggage. I arrived at the airport and paid 80 Euros to check in my 12kilo bag. I bought I would be proactive and pay for the baggage for my return(only 20 euros). I received only a receipt for the 20 euros, but paid 63,250 drams. Something is shady and I feel duped. The flight was over an hour late with no explanation. There was a plane at the gate when we landed, which added to the tardiness of arrival. They were so non Chalant about so many people missing their connecting flights. It was like they already knew they were going to put us on Lufthansa 2 hours later... polish airlines Is awful- the airport personnel even worse. No one respects standing in line. Airport officials kept cutting into the security lines which literally cost me the 5 minutes that I could have made the flight. I am very diasspointed and kayak should not advertise this airline."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "This is about as budget as you can get. Entertainment systems didn’t work, drinks were warm. Food was mediocre. Bathroom doors didn’t work, and the toilet seat wouldn’t stay up while using it! Yuck! Had to shuttle EVERYWHERE between flights, before and after. Crew was not attentive, and not so friendly either. Only good note was the young lady who checked our bags in Warsaw and helped get our seats together (after the airline messed the seat assignment up in the first place). Ugh. Worst airline I’ve been on."
Cons: "Because of them not knowing their job I had to spent extra 1000$..."
Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seat"
Cons: "Flight was delayed (again) so I missed my train. Taxing and bus takes 30min as they do not take bridge :("
Pros: "Overall everything was good - I have travelled frequently with LOT in the past few months and this was perhaps the best experience so far. Boarding was easy enough - the flight was not fully booked so there wasn't the usual Central European pushing and anxiety during boarding. Flight crew are informative, cabin crew attentive and kind. Service and food were good."
Cons: "Comfort on these long haul flights is not expected in economy - the seat next to me was free which came in very useful as the person in front of me reclined almost immediately and kept throwing himself about in his seat in vain attempts to get comfortable - I was able to move over so I wasn't disturbed by his person. Why they have reclining seats is a mystery - it doesn't make it appreciably more comfortable for the person reclining and it reduces leg room for the person behind, makes it more difficult to watch the screen (despite the tilting feature) and means that the tray table is resting on your knees during meal times."
Pros: "Good selection of in-flight entertainment, relatively clean plane."
Cons: "Boarding at WAW was a joke - very disorganized and cramped gate area. Simple remedy is to give passengers guidance on where to line up for their assigned zone prior to boarding. No individual air ventilation - got hot and uncomfortable at times. Cramped economy seats - and if passenger in front of you fully reclines - your TV screen is almost in your lap. Hot meal included very rubbery chicken - obviously either overcooked or nuked too much. Attendants seemed indifferent or annoyed if you asked for individual attention outside of their normal rounds of serving drinks/etc (all I wanted was a Coke). I was essentially told to go to the back of the cabin and get my own drink... Upon arrival - de-planing took an eternity. We had a large group of teen band members traveling - who had scattered their instruments in overheads all around the plane. So anyone that was behind them had to wait until they figured out where all their stuff was stowed. OK - not necessarily LOT's fault - but again - a little thought and some hand's on guidance by the crew would have made it easier for the other passengers to get off the plane quicker after a 9 1/2 hour flight..."
Pros: "Flight was good. Warsaw is a well organized airport and easy for transit passengers to negotiate. Flight crew, staff were all helpful and approachable. The captain gave passengers relevant information and cabin crew did the same. Flight was problem free no turbulence no delays no just well run and well organized."
Cons: "Leg room - I know in economy you can't expect much but passengers are really cramped on the 787. 9 hours of sitting in a very restricted space with little opportunity to get up and about if you are hemmed in between two fellow passengers - and once the idiot in front of me had reclined his seat it became very uncomfortable. I don't frankly see why seats need to recline at all - it does not make it much more comfortable for those "reclining" and certainly makes it considerably worse for the person sitting behind. I also don't understand LOT's boarding process - it didn't make much difference but if you are assigned a ZONE 3 boarding number and it is never displayed and never called, what"s the point."
Cons: "On a way to Poland from New York we were waiting two hours in airport with no information. Then we were sitting in airplane 50 minutes more. It was delay 2hours and 50 min."
Pros: "Overall very good - no complaints. LOT is comparable with Lufthansa and KLM (the airlines I have most experience with) in terms of service and space. Boarding in Warsaw was chaotic - no announcements it just sort of started, I was in Zone 3 but there were only lines for Zones 1 and 2. The usual Central European pushing into the line. Flight was nice, smooth and good service. Leg room is limited but that is to be expected on any airline and flight. Would fly LOT again happily. On time, Captain made regular announcements. I arrived safely, as did my luggage. Can't wait for the direct service between Chicago and Budapest."
Pros: "Both flights I was on were somewhat empty, so I had an open seat next to me. Despite some delays taking off, the arrival was early. Good entertainment selection; personal TV screens and free headphones."
Cons: "Food options were limited and kind of gross, but no one expects fantastic food on airplanes."
Pros: "I am not sure where to start from but each lot employee I talk with had poor English and not the tinyest willing to help just to move , I had a flight back from cezh republic to JFK with a stop in Warsaw When I got to the front desk in the air port to print my ticket the Liady ( work at Sation 236 ) was very rude and anti costumer service she print me only my first fly ticket and when I ask why she " I don't know " I said ok so when u get there you know which get I go or where I will print the other ticket she say I don't know Ok and then I ask her can u check if it a room I. My flight from Warsaw to JFK in business it this moment she tell me I can switch sit and ask me to go I was shocked but this was only the bigining when I got to Warsaw I ask in the gate counter where should I go to print my ticket after I try to explain him 10 times what I mean ( he didn't speak English at all ) he told me to go pass the passport check and in gate 21 they will print it to me I fly a lot so I ask him if he sure becuse I am petty sure I will need my ticket the guy at the desk repeat imhim self so I want and waited 25-30 min in the line so the police officer in the passport check will tell me I need to go print my ticket So after the officer from the passport desk call someone he direct me to go to hate 26 and there they will print my ticket I want them and again wait for 15 min to print my ticket ( it was only me this is the sad thing I don't know what tool 15 min to print a ticket ) and it amazing how unsocial and 0 in customer service the lot polish employees I meet And this is without talking about the delay in my coming flight for 2-3 hrs ( a delay it something that happen a lot yes but the way they handled it again 0 in costumer service )"
Cons: "The flight attendant was very nice and professional but it was business class so u can't really compare I will definitely will not recommend ppl to fly with them This is not the service you accept for 3000$ flight"
Pros: "Not 1 thing !!! Bad.bad.bad"
Cons: "The legs room, no free meal, on the flight from warsaw to tel aviv. 1 hour late on departure from warsaw to tel aviv"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and due to the number of passangers, no attempt to change my seating was made."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing. Very attentive, courteous and professional!! The crew was in no way responsible for how terrible this airplane was, and they did a wonderful job of making sure everything was taken care of."
Cons: "The plane was terribly old and decrepit. None of the television screens worked, the airplane was dingy, brown, worn out looking and just overall gross. This flight was operated by a company called Privilege Style, and while the crew was fantastic everything else was terrible. The food was pathetic and nasty; they served breaded chicken that was so soggy it resembled a used dish cloth. It came with soggy oily vegetables and a cake that had condensation all over it. The only redeeming thing on this flight was the free Polish beer (it was warm). The flight we took going to Poland was on one of their new Dreamliner planes and it was amazing! We were so disappointed with this return flight as it was a stark contrast to the wonderful experience we had coming to Poland. I hope in the future they can discontinue use of these older planes, as it makes flying much more aggravating."
Cons: "This plane is never on time. Count at least 45 min delay. I avoid this airline. Take their tickets only if they are significantly cheaper than the competitors."
Pros: "It's this application which is really make me like a stupid guy sitting in the airport"
Cons: "U have to refund the money back this is worst experience I had in my life"
Pros: "I have been flying with them for the past 16 years(economy seats), and I have to say that their service,and comfort of overnight flights have improved tremendously! Partially due to the fact that they have 787 Dreamliners now, in which the seats are wider and are reclining more than before, the leg room is bigger, the air quality better. The crew members are very professional,not overly sweet,yet caring and understanding,especially when you are flying with small children.As to those complaining about overcharged luggage- read the rules people! If you go over the maximum limit of 50lb for a check in, let's say 2lb,they won't charge you,but don't expect them to close their eyes when your luggage weighs almost double that!"
Cons: "The food is ok, nicely packed, but even if you don't like it they have extra options to purchase for a small price."
Pros: "The crew was nice and courteous. Many amenities to pass the time. Getting off the plane was quick and painless. Food was reasonable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour, which is fine, but no information was given to why and we started boarding at the updated takeoff time. The process of getting zones lined up and on the plane was a mess. They didn't communicate clearly about zones so every passenger got up and in line, lines weren't directed well, and people kept getting chastized for not knowing what was going on. Once we boarded the plane, we sat for an hour with no reasoning why we waited. When you already have a 9 hour flight, less time stuck in your seat is best. It was hard to understand the pilot when he spoke in English to know why we had delays and any updates while on the plane."
Pros: "New aircraft was nice, clean, up to date"
Cons: "Initially the entertainment system was not working. The crew was notified that screens are not working, so they rebooted it once. After some time, my and my daughters screens were still not working. We used call button to get crews attention. However, no one was paying attention to the lights. At some point there were 8 blue lights on throughout our cabin calling for assistance. I got attention by waving my hand and asking for help. I told 3 different times re my screen. They stated that they just rebooted the system and it will be working soon. My next seat neighbors were hour into their movies. No one did come back and check if I'm Ok if problem got resolved. Then they were even ignoring us and not offering drinks at this point. I felt like I got punished for asking for help. That's when I asked for crew person in charge. She was kind and offered to move to economy plus. We did move for majority of the flight. Enjoyed entertainment. However, when there was 1.5 h left of our trip, they woke us up and asked to move back to our seats since the meal plans are upgraded in this section. I was shocked, somewhat embarrassed to move back. I felt like a person that likes to cause trouble/ complainer being punished. Since we purchased full price ticket like everyone, we should be able to enjoy it like everyone. Airline should compensate clients, if there's issue with airplane. Flight to LT was good, however going home was extremely unnecessarily stressful. I'll try my best NOT to fly LOT in the future."
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "LOT planes were late to both directions to the place and 2 weeks later from the place. When we flew with my little daughter - toddler to the destination the plane was late and as a result we were late to another plane, so they sent us to the same destination country but to the different place and then I had to find out were to go further while our luggage was lost (found in 3 days). When we flew back, the plane was late once again and I was told that we might will be left until next day morning, so lots of nervous and stress. The food provided was very poor as well - basically just small chocolate bar and water, tea or coffee, so if you are hungry it would not really help you."
Cons: "Adding a checked bag was complicated and difficult. Website was hard to use and had to add bag at airport through reservation desk, not at check in."
Pros: "Nice flight crew, decent food available for purchase."
Cons: "I purchased my ticket through Kayak on priceline.com In the description of the fair it was specifically stated that I'm allowed 1 checked in bag. The airline did not send me the standard check in and flight information email, so when out of concer for my flight, I logged in a few hours before to find out that all the good seats were already taken. When I then proceeded to online check in, I was dumbfounded to find out that I do not have any luggage allowance. When I called their English language help line I was connected to a prerecorded message and then promptly connected to a Polish speaking person. Lucky for me I speak some Polish, but if you do not you would have a problem. The person then proceeded to inform me that the flight from Poland to London that I was taking is considered by the Polish airlines as a local flight and for that reason I'm not allotted a free checked in bag. I fly a lot all over the world and this is the first time something like this has ever happened to me. I will now permanently stay away from Lot. They shouldnot be considered a major airline, but a cheap flight air. This way when booking a flight you would know to not expect much from them."
Pros: "When we got to the airport on the way back home, they couldn't find our tickets. I had online tickets and confirmation, but we were still not on the flight list. We had to go to the ticket counter for them to clear it up and put us back on the flight. The flight itself was not bad. The flight attendants are a bit rude and condescending. The seats and entertainment was not bad."
Cons: "1. Cancelled our outgoing flight hours before it was set to leave; notified us via email; barely got re-booked via different airlines and had to take 3 different flights to reach out destination; missed the 2nd flight because LOT put us on a flight that was departing 30 minutes before out 1st flight arrived. 2. When we got another 2nd flight, we arrived at our final destination without our bags. LOT assured us that our bags were on our flight before we boarded but calling and confirming that they were able to transfer our bags (only had 40 minutes between flights), but of course, it was a complete lie. We did not get our bag until the next day in the evening over 24 hours later. At that point I was happy they found them and gave them to us. 3. Turns out, they cancel flights pretty often and they also book people on transfer flights that are too close for people to make it. We traveled with a handful of other passengers that had the same experience and people were in tears about their horrible travel experience. 4. Warsaw Airport - they only have 5 passport control officers clearing travelers and because they don;t have lines or any type of organization of these travelers, the lines our out of control. People are pushing each other, crying because they are missing flights or not feeling well because of no air and all the pushing and shoving. I was pregnant standing in the line for over 40 minutes. They would not let pregnant passengers or passengers with kids with them pass in their disabled line. Only people in the wheelchairs were allowed to pass there. Horrible airport and even more horrible airline! PLEASE SPARE YOURSELF AND DO NOT RUIN YOUR VACATION."
Pros: "Simple, quick service."
Cons: "Very basic service but not really any issues."
Pros: "Cabin crew were at least apologetic after the delays and shambolic boarding process (see below)."
Cons: "Chaotic flight that was delayed due to overbooking and the failure to deal with it in any competent way. An apparently overbooked flight led to a cascade of errors - there seemed to be a total breakdown in communication between the gate/services team and the ground crew, etc. as to where the extra passengers came from and what could be done with them. They even admitted to their being many misunderstandings among the LOT staff themselves as they struggled to rectify the situation. The worst outcome was that we got trapped in the bus, right outside the plane, for 30 minutes. They had sent us to board while back at the gate they were still arguing over who should actually be on the plane. During this time there was no sign of the cabin crew at all. After 10 minutes or so the driver left to go and have a chat with some of the ground ops team and we were left on our own as the windows steamed up and small children started to cry. The whole thing was an appalling exercise in miscommunication - both between staff themselves and between staff and passengers."
Pros: "The food was good for an airline. on business class dreamliner from Toronto to Warsaw the seat is comfortable, if a little short for a 6'5" person. In the sos called "buisness class" to Israel the seats are as crampped as any cattle class of a low cost. I wish those idiots that invented "euro club" would understand that it is a first class ripp-off and that if they are only flying two people per side using real comfortable seats makes faar more sense. In short - euro club is BS of teh worst class."
Cons: "The atitude of teh staff on teh flight was OK. Other than that very sour including teh check-in and teh businss club. Going through the border control in Warsaw took 45 minutes. Luckily the flight was delayed. In short, the attitude is strictly old fashion eastern block. On the dreamliner business classs the TV's did not work, but in any case they are way too far (about 6 feet) from the passanger for comfort. Very impractical."
Pros: "I love flying on the Embraer jets. Very comfortable. Flight was punctual, crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin had a good atmosphere. Warsaw Airport is a great airport to transit through."
Cons: "The meal service is a bit inconvenient. First round, they sell food. Second round, they give out complementary drinks (tea, coffee, water, no juice or soft drink). Third round, they give out a complimentary snack. It takes ages (more than half way through the flight) for free snack to come around! I would rather eat my bar before getting my drink. If you could reverse the order I think it would work better. That is, give out the free snack, then the free drink, and then lastly sell drinks and snacks to those still hungry."
Cons: "Many people on this flight were bothered by the fact that their families were split up all over the airplane and no one could sit together. During boarding there were groups of people who had all been split up and were desperately trying to switch seats with others. I was traveling with a 15 year old, and even though she is not a small child it was very nerve wrecking to be seated 20 rows behind her, not being able to keep an eye on her (even more so because she gets car sick and has thrown up on airplanes before). I don't think I've ever flown where my group was not at least seated in pairs. This was very disappointing."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was ok. They usually charge for any alcoholic beverages, though."
Cons: "Extremely rude staff (allowed a passenger to almost break my hand luggage with hers, and literally laughed at my concern,) kept us on plane for 2+ hours with minimal info given on the problem, then de-planed and kept us waiting at Warsaw airport for another 2 hours (no food, water or even a manager appeared until the end of that 4 hours, by the way, and only after a screaming mob of passengers formed,) then kept us on the new plane for nearly another 2 hours. This made for an approximate 6 hour delay, with minimal comfort, food, water, info or sympathy throughout, nor an offer to switch our flights and/or provide night accommodation due to the 5+ hour delay on this evening flight (as is within our passenger rights.) The plane finally arrived to JFK way after 1 a.m., which completely ruined weekend work and social plans, not to mention how exhausting and disrespectful of an experience it was. PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERY SINGLE OF THE FOUR LOT FLIGHTS I'D UNDERTAKEN THAT WEEK WERE DELAYED IN A SIMILAR FASHION - AS IN, WITH LITTLE INFO OR EXCUSE. No, thanks, Lot - and you should refund us all."
Pros: "Food and service were ok."
Cons: "I flew in Premium, but I had to call the airline to have the seat assigned. I could not choose the seat online although the website said I could choose a seat ahead of time. The only way to see the arrangement of seats was through seatguru.com. The best seats for the Premium Class are 4A, 4B and 4F and 4G, which are the first row in Premium. The rest of them have legs or boxes under the seat in front of you, so there is really now way you can stretch your legs fully under the seat in front of you during the flight. I was able to secure 4G for my return flight from Warsaw, but going to Warsaw from O'Hare I was put into 6B, no proper room for the right leg. They did not let us use the Business Class bathroom, which was much closer. We had to go all the way to the bathroom behind the row 19. Very inconvenient. They allow dogs in the Premium cabin, so if you are allergic to dogs brace yourself. I fly LOT only when I have no other option."
Pros: "The entertainment on the plane was great. Large selection of movies, music, and TV shows to keep yourself entertained. The dinner was adequate. It was also nice having the overhead screens continually update our flight progress."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly cramped, by the end I was feeling seriously claustrophobic. It didn't help that we left late. The boarding process was a mess, nobody seemed to know what to do, and the announcements were all mumbled to the point where I was just guessing what to do. The second meal served was inedible as the bread was completely stale. Also, one of the toilets was broken and kept flushing, even when sitting on it. Like the boarding process, disembarking was sloppy and confusing. It took a very long time to open the door, and they only told people at the last minute that they needed to get their passports out."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. food was free"
Cons: "Then the flight from warsaw to JFK was fine, but when we landed there was only 10 minutes for me to get to my next flight and i asked the attendant if she could call my gate ahead and tell them I'm trying to make it, and she grunted and told me to sit back down. Then i proceeded to go to baggage claim where my bag never showed up and when I finally saw that it wasn't showing up I sprinted to my next flight and got to the door 15 seconds after it closed. Then i had to spend the night in NYC and was unable to go to buffalo unitl the morning after having spent already the whole day in the airport since my first flight didn't take off until about 5 hours after it was scheduled. And now I still do not have my bag, and jet blue says they never got it from LOT airlines"
Pros: "The food was good, the flight crew was curteous altho not English speakers."
Cons: "The flight was one hour delayed and during boarding most of the time only one person checked us all in for a full dreamliner. There were at least four other LOT employees standing around who could have pitched in. I had a window seat with a large man next to me who overflowed into my space making it uncomfortable to just sit. I couldn't even cut my meat without bumping him. Because LOT upgraded random people before the flight, I would suggest they wait until they board and see who doesn't fit in the tight space and move those people."
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and I was not able to sit next to my husband."
Pros: "Fast boarding, welcoming staff. Good experience"
Cons: "The flight wasn't full but still had some people seated next to each other. Flights should allow for social distancing right now"
Pros: "TAP is great to fly, friendly, safe and solid, nice crew"
Cons: "30 min late, exaggerated extra charge for a small suitcase, food was a dry sandwich."
Pros: "Crew very good nice fligth too"
Pros: "Seats super comfortable. Big screen entrainment."
Cons: "One more time offer drinks for a very long travel time (other 10H)."
Cons: "One more toilet on the Lisbon Geneva flight would have been nice."
Pros: "Crew was great, the plane was barely full, so you were able to stretch out."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and the light snack provided terrible. No entertainment at all. The A319 is a horrible airplane: rather uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Space in the cabin"
Cons: "Language included"
Pros: "The food and service during the flight was great. Enjoyed the meals and they offered drinks frequently. Complementary wine is also a big plus compared to other airlines."
Cons: "The luggage situation. We were very annoyed that we didn’t get a carry on bag and had to pay $92 each for every checked bag. I travel frequently and have never experienced this with another airline."
Cons: "They are very sneaky and try to make you check carryon bags - for $120. Will never fly w them again."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good. The hot meal was very good."
Cons: "We would have appreciated water being served between the meals; it was a very long time with nothing.The cold meal was just ok. We paid extra for our seats and were very disappointed at being stuck in the middle where it is difficult to move or get up. It would have been nice to be able to actually"
Pros: "crew was so very helpful. Food was surprisingly good"
Cons: "bumping and no coffee"
Pros: "Everything went according to the timetable, boarding was on-time and we even arrived a bit earlier than scheduled, so I can't really fault the service of the pilots, the cabin crew or the ground operations team. Food wasn't exactly stellar, but clearly a lot better than on most European flights operated by larger companies (Lufthansa, KLM, Air France etc.). The aircraft itself was clean and looked fairly new and well maintained"
Cons: "The seating was absolutely HORRENDOUS. Even though I'm nearly 6'3" (close to 1.90m), I generally never complain about seating space or legroom, even on low cost flights. This particular TAP aircraft, however, despite looking quite new, had some of the most cramped seating ever. Additionally, the trays were minuscule (you could barely place the entire food tray the service during the flight, let alone have another drink at the same time on the tray). Also, on the inbound flight (this was the return one), the seats were fitted with a very simple and clever tablet-holding mechanism, so you could easily watch something on your table while eating your food (from a similarly small tray table). The seat back pockets do not have any material/fabric on the sides, so stored items could easily slip out sideways from the pocket. Shame to have such a good in flight service and to be a punctual airline if you're going to carry your passengers cramped like cattle in seats 'rivalling' the ones on Ryanair flights on 4-hour long journeys."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Cons: "Flight was late which seems to be a standard with TAP."
Pros: "Not too many people"
Cons: "Was delayed. Too long waiting for luggages"
Pros: "The airplane crew was very professional. The entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Space and mobility was very limited."
Cons: "CRew was rude. Food was poor.checked baggage fees exhorbitant"
Cons: "for some strange reason luggage was not included on this trip (our return leg). we had to pay for luggage at the airport."
Cons: "1) I tried several times while traveling but was unable to figure out how to choose a vegetarian option for the flight. When I called customer service, after a long hold time, the woman I finally spoke to told me it was too late to order vegetarian and refused to help me. I have never flown another airline (Air India, Turkish Air, United, American, China Southern, etc., etc.) that did not make this easy to choose during booking or check-in and that did not already have a standard ovo-lacto vegetarian option on the regular menu. Vegetarians practice for all sorts of reasons, including religion and health needs. It's unacceptable to make it so difficult to meet your meal needs while trapped on a plane for nine hours. 2) The check-in agent did not know the rule about all remaining seats being opened for passenger choice three hours before booking and insisted we had to pay to get aisle seats despite one of us having a health problem necessitating her standing up and walking every 45 minutes. Then another agent told us we couldn't choose seats for free for our Porto to Newark flight when we check in for our Madrid-Porto flight because it wasn't technically three hours before the Porto-Newark departure. But how were we supposed to choose seats for the Porto-Newark flight three hours in advance if we are in an airplane flying to Porto at that time? This makes no sense. Seats should be opened for every leg of a same-day journey at the same time. The agents were unhelpful and unsympathetic. 3) This was an old plane without options to choose a film or show to watch. Instead, passengers could flip through a few channels and hope to find something of interest that was already playing -- there was no way to begin a film or show from the beginning if you landed on it in the middle of its running time. I cannot recommend TAP Portugal to any of my friends, family, or colleagues after this experience."
Cons: "Boarding difficult for immigration"
Pros: "I got to Rio de Janeiro on time"
Cons: "cramped seats, minimal water offered by crew on 9.5 hour flight. I also found the extra charge to reserve a seat on this flight a serious affront to economic sensibility"
Cons: "I was told at the check in that my bags are NOT paid for...when I booked the tickets on line there was no mention of any additional charges, or option to purchase baggage"
Pros: "car rental service SIXT"
Cons: "having to check bags that we didn't on the way to Faro was annoying long line at entry (my husband and I used EU) but they made my mom and sister go in the other longer line this time we had to run for connecting flight and my mother is elderly"
Pros: "Service, the way the pilot communicated our delay and the food and beverage"
Pros: "Ice cream for snack."
Cons: "Flight from Oporto to Lisbon, when we landed they did not set up the ramp to exit the plane, I had requested mobility assistance. And the ramp was right next to the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very nice I have to give them credit for that and the entertainment was pretty good with recent movies"
Cons: "The food was really bad very unappetizing. The thing that was really bad is a day sprayed pesticides there out the plane before we took off and I feel like I have a cold now because of it my throat is really sore it's just a really weird thing to do to have the whole crew walking up and down with aerosol can spraying pesticides all over the guests."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like that on a 3:30 hour delay the passengers did not get information about the delay. Line for check-in was too long. More then 2 hours on the line to check-in. Uncomfortable seats (too tight)"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, plane was clean, smooth flying, takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took us 1 hour even though we had already checked in online. hard, and narrow seats, needs more legroom for international travel, armrest between my wife and I was very wide and wouldn't go up all the way making it extremely uncomfortable for us on a flight from Miami to Portugal. My wife's seat didn't recline because it was broken. And to top it all off they lost one of our luggage tags because the lady in Miami tagged the bag with somebody else's name and destination on it. Still waiting to hear if I'm going to have my luggage for one year anniversary vacation....!"
Cons: "connecting flight but no entertainment, very cramped space"
Cons: "The sizing device is much smaller than it needs to be for carry on roller bags. My bag was forced to be checked by the ground crew on this Tap flight. My bag is a normal sized carry on bag that has always fit on all flights. There was plenty of space on the aircraft for it. The ground crew also let others on with larger bags so they dont even apply their policy in a consistent manner. I will do my best to avoid TAP from now on."
Cons: "Flight left without us"
Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was a n extensive selection of great movies to choose from."
Cons: "There were 2 screaming children in the row next to me. The parents did not handle themselves well. On the brightside, the crew did everything they could to help better the situation."
Pros: "Slept the entire way there. Comfy seats"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and relaxed even though there was a delay."
Pros: "Servis was perfect, food was even better than with British airlines. I very like that Portugal crew were much more nice and hospitable than English crew."
Cons: "any unlikes."
Cons: "It did not included luggage cost which means i had to pay additional cost. You SHOULD state it in booking pages (NOT LINK). If i knew it i would never use TAP. I found direct flight, cheaper. I want you to pay back."
Pros: "Crew was kind, not robots. They disciplined the several children running in the aisles throughout the flight as their parents did not. Medal of bravery and honor to them! D"
Cons: "Dirty cabin - floor was filthy with food and wrappers when we boarded. Did not use bathroom as assumed it was same."
Pros: "Had all the wine I could drink."
Cons: "The flight was too late for our connections."
Pros: "Food was gross I couldn't even eat it. The soup came in a paste and the beef tasted expired, I saw a hair on my rice. Just awful, for the entire flight from Lisbon to Miami I didn't eat it was just disgusting. I've flown and never had such an awful experience with the food."
Cons: "Tasted bad, unsanitary. I found a hair and the food just looks like something I would give my dog."
Pros: "I liked the individual blankets, pillow and headphones on the chairs."
Pros: "Smoothe flight"
Cons: "Ridiculous line to check a bag, super unorganized way of boarding, the meal was not vegetarian nor was there a vegetarian option, it took quite a while to get my bag and I was one of the last people on the plane"
Pros: "Left late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule. Seat was large and comfortable. All personnel were efficient, helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Did not like the food. One small, not so good tuna sandwich. Ugh!!!"
Pros: "The best thing was the attention and kindness of the crew on board: Excellent! Although I do have some complaints, I would say Tap is a quite good airline that should improve some aspects."
Cons: "The boarding in Lisbon was not efficient. It took a lot of time to get people on the plane and the land personnel in charge were not nice at all. I would even say very bad humoured! Plus the majority of passengers were kept standing for a very long time before entering the lounge at the gate because even though it was full of empty seats we were not allowed to enter the area. The food was not good and the entertainment system on board needs a refreshment to modernise it."
Pros: "Good entertainment and the staff where quite nice and helpful. Not a bad value."
Cons: "The food was not all that great and the overall flight just seemed okay, nothing extraordinary."
Pros: "Friendly crew, plane left on time, fast boarding and departure time."
Cons: "Strike in Portugal at security but nothing to do with airline"
