Customer service was lacking. Crew members were quite rude when we asked for alternate food options, even though we were asking to pay for food that they had listed in their in-flight purchase menu. None of the items for purchase were even available according to the crew and they weren't the least bit apologetic about it. When they were handing out breakfast boxes and we asked what was inside, they said we don't know, you can check yourselves. Overall, were unhappy with the service and will most probably avoid flying with the airline in the future.
Cons: "I paid Xtraeconomy to have some snacks during the fly, and they end up coming with a trolley to pay! Disappointed!"
Pros: "Yes, it was comfortable and they r nice."
Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"
Pros: "Not much. Poor service, bad crew"
Cons: "Better service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food is miserable."
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."
Cons: "I was not informed the ticket didn’t includes luggage"
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: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "I had two flights that day: TAP Portugal: greeters, assistance loading carry-on, fish with potatoes and spinach, glass of wine, pudding, sandwich, carrot cake bite, coffee and a blanket. Jet Blue: water three hours in, (unhealthy) bag of chips."
Pros: "The Tap flight was an hour late causing me to miss my connecting flight with Tap and my car rental. Attendant NO help. Sent me wrong place!!."
Cons: "Better flight attendants who know how to help. Never TAP again!!"
Cons: "Organizing the boarding. The food was a disaster and the seats was a joke, the most uncomfortable plane I’ve ever been on."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, horrible customer service, no flight entertainment available, seats were uncomfortable. Definitely would not recommend"
Pros: "The crew was kind and the flight ok. They wanted to charge me 120.00 USD for my one bag checked ONE WAY. 240.00 USD round trip for one checked bag!!!!! On their website it clearly states one free checked bag for ALL FLIGHTS xcept “discount” fares. No way to prove I purchased “basic”"
Cons: "They lied. The website does not clearly state that you will be CHARGED FOR CHECKED BAGS. Warning!!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"
Pros: "Much better than I expected, will fly again with pleasure."
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "When we landed at the destination."
Cons: "Gate checked 90% of the carry on luggage, but not with an official tag, just some guy scribbling on tags before the bus. Boarding was a fiasco: disorderly lines just to pile into a bus and shuttle to plane. Comfort!? Ha. I'm 5'8" short and my knees were digging into the seats in front of me. The new seats are hard as a rock and don't recline. Cramped is an understatement. The tray table is literally the same size as the tray itself. Did TAP build a mock up of this before production?!? You get to hold your drink and put your silverware in your lap while you eat. Food was too hot to open foil, and once opened was mediocre at best. Entertainment?!? Literally nonexistent. Well actually in the fancy seats beyond economy there is a little slot to attach a phone or tablet on the back of the seat. So your entertainment is whatever you brought. I guess the touchscreen/on demand entertainment I remember from the early 2000's is too high tech for TAP."
Cons: "Very salty food. Flight was delayed so I almost missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "The airplane crew was very professional. The entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Space and mobility was very limited."
Pros: "Free food and drinks. Pillow and blanket and ear buds all ready on each seat! More spacious seating."
Cons: "No indication booking was discounted flight on kayak website! Charges for baggage very , very high!. Very bad border crossing as we waited in line for a simple passport stamp for 3 hours!!!!!!"
Pros: "Good food serving times."
Cons: "The hospitality of the airline crew is very poor as they are extremely rude to their customers. The planes I flew on were very out of date and not comfortable for international travel. I have flown on many airlines, but these planes were by far the worst. Cheap price, for a reason. The seats didn’t recline, the food was terrible, no options were given for food, and the movies were pre-picked. No one had a choice in what they watched. Very outdated. I had 2.5 hours to board my connecting flight and they caused me to miss it. As I waited in the customs line entering Lisbon, I asked a TAP representative if I’d have to get out of the line up and go right through as my flight left at 2:10 pm. They said you will make it, stay in line. I get near the front of the line 2 hours later... hundreds of people were in this line and they only had 2/10 customs agents available!!! I ask another representative how far my gate is since my flight leaves in 30 min and she told me “no you missed it. but don’t worry others will be missing it too”. So no I did not miss it, you caused me to miss it cause I already asked if I would and you people told me no. I run to the gate, which has now changed to the other end of the airport, so I run to that gate and it is 10 min before the flight is to take off. I ask the desk agent at the gate and he tells me the flight has already left. Others had missed it too due to the insane customs line up. So the plane left 20 mins earlier than scheduled with only half it’s passengers..... unbelievable!!! When I went to the service desk they did not show any sympathy or apologetic behaviours whatsoever."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late, and they would not let us take our carry-on luggage on the flight even though there was plenty of room in the overhead compartments, which caused us to miss our return flight home overseas. No customer service desk at the airport. Ended up costing hundreds of dollars more to book another flight home."
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."
Cons: "everything is ok but food is bad. better give to passenger fruit or bisquit, wafers"
Pros: "The check in was smooth and boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had problems with TAP up front related to baggage fares and them keeping the $85 I paid for my son who is 2 meters tall to be in an exit row and then assigned to a different seat. He was miserable for almost seven hours."
Pros: "the flight was fine."
Cons: "The 70 euro luggage fee was a bit excessive. The delay and subsequent missing of my connecting flight that resulted in a 11 hour layover and a 10 euro voucher was pretty lame. TAP Portugal customer service leaves a bit to be desired"
Pros: "good movies for the long flight. friendly staff."
Cons: "As I keep metioning....you guys need to be more generous with the Victoria program. I fly you guys a minimum of 7 or 8 times a year, plus numerous partner flights, and what do I get? no free upgrades, 60,000 miles to become gold etc etc"
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Pros: "Honestly I didn't like anything because before I boarded , I was charged for all my luggage . They said that tap changed there policy , how I suppose to know ? Why didn't it say anything while purchasing a ticket"
Cons: "I was charged for my 3 luggage . It's not fair . I still have the invoice , before ibbook the ticket it said that you get free luggage ."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable in economy although no one is ever happy with how little they recline, crew was friendly and helpful. Entertainment selection was larger than most airlines I've flown on."
Cons: "Flight left Toronto at midnight, the crew served a meal and it was about 2 hours after departure that the cabin lights were finally turned off. On an overnight, overseas flight, turn off the lights and service breakfast with a noon arrival like all the flights I've taken to London do."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and well organized."
Pros: "The flight was quick, boarding was easy and efficient."
Cons: "Flight attendants can be a bit nicer."
Cons: "This airline is not notoriously delayed but has a penchant for losing luggage. Within 2 weeks they managed to lose my luggage twice and that on totally unrelated trips! Booooh."
Pros: "I asked if it were possible to change my seat at the gate and was promptly given a window seat. They were very pleasant and professional. Food was very good and movie choices excellent. Good customer service."
Cons: "2 hour delay for a 30 minute flight. Really?"
Cons: "First flight was delayed by just a half an hour and we arrived in Portugal. We had a connecting flight to AMS with also TAP and had a two hour window to make the next flight with the same company (TAP). We were in line for passport and then security and talked to several TAP employees and they said we would be have time and wouldn't have a problem catching the second flight. Well, we got through the lines with 30 min before our next flight and they wouldn't let us on. Customer service and organization of the airline is really poor. The aircraft had minimal room and no entertainment. We got on our next flight five hours later and all they gave us was a $10 food voucher. So poorly managed."
Pros: "Overall flight was great and crew very polite"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about it!"
Pros: "Staff couldn't have been more courteous."
Cons: "Little confusing at the gate but mainly due to poor PA system not the staff. Happens a lot at airports in my experience"
Cons: "Wait for boarding"
Pros: "Aircraft seem well maintained and crews are very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess this time. The lady directing the boarding did not make clear where each group should stand. So The lady had to send most of us back which upset many. TAP should copy Southwest Airlines except self checkin kiosk are horrid no matter which airline uses it."
Cons: "y extra bag cost more than my ticket. I should have just bought another ticket but was too flustered"
Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom because I'm 6'4". Was given a different seat and still charged."
Pros: "Very convenient"
Cons: "There is no food"
Cons: "Schedule was impossible to make the connection due to the need to go through customs which took 45min. Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. The delay was over 6hrs which was rough."
Pros: "Affordable and on time"
Cons: "Bizarre cabin crew announcements and chaotic boarding"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, crew very helpful, punctuality...."
Cons: "Space to carry-on"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; attentive crew."
Cons: "Cabin temperature; too cold."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Difficulties to going out of the airplane"
Pros: "Crew was great, seats could have been better for the fare we paid..."
Cons: "The food was not the meal we ordered"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were super friendly and attentive. Amazing service!"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The food literally gave me food poisoning"
Pros: "the entertainment and ease"
Cons: "the noise"
Pros: "The process to go through security and boarding was smooth and efficient"
Pros: "Flow as smooth , attendants were good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and then we sat about an hour on board waiting to get de-iced. Ended up over 1 1/2 hours late."
Pros: "The pilot was honest and concerned with the safety of the aircraft. That was most appreciated."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. There was no liquor or even a small snack provided. Minimum service by the flight crew. Most disappointed!"
Cons: "2 hour delay with very little communication as to why. Plane was way too big for a short domestic flight (boarding and departure took longer than the flight itself). Parked at far end of the airport so 15+ mins walk to arrivals. All around one of the worst flight experiences I’ve had in years!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane noise was loud"
Pros: "Excellent crew and good food. All hood. Thanks."
Pros: "The flight was brief."
Cons: "Cramped, very poor landing, insufficient information as to how to get to the flight with my luggage. I couldn’t find my luggage at the other end."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight I am greatly indisposed as the hot weather requires frequent change of clothes."
Cons: "No chance to change or reschedule flight. No understanding with a bit of compassion the situation."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "not enough drinks offered during 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Meals provided Plane was early quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "No personal tvs Plane was old and falling apart in some places (e.g. arm rests) Staff wasn't on the ball (friend ordered vegetarian meal option but was given chicken, asked for water and staff ended up forgetting)"
Cons: "Food was misrepresented in the menu to what was served. Staff were not friendly or accommodating. There was no individual air flow or total cabin air flow."
Pros: "Personnel serviable et professionnel"
Cons: "One jour late on schedule"
Pros: "Loved the updates on my flight"
Pros: "Boarding process was efficient, flight crew were attentive, journey was shorter than scheduled."
Cons: "Checkin process flawed (very rude lady who would not let our son check in via kids club). Food was poor (the salad was not just cold, it was frozen solid), seating was uncomfortable (new thin seats with little or no comfort for a transatlantic flight)."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Boarding was fairly quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for a bunch of reasons. No video screens on the flight. No info booklets in the back of the seats. No complimentary snacks."
Cons: "Delays Antiquated electronics use procedures Slow onboard service on a red-eye flight"
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Airline staff were very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable for a transatlantic trip- difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The Direct Flight was pretty nice. Don't have to worry about losing your luggage."
Cons: "Where do i start? The seats are so narrow! My husband sat near the window where he ended up putting up the arm rest and sharing my seat with me. And of course the man next to me took just as much space so here I am in the middle squished between 2 big men, extremely uncomfortable for 8 straight hours. Obviously couldnot sleep due to the lack of space. They also didn't provide tv on any of the seats! What were we supposed to do for 8 hour? MISERABLE FLIGHT TO AND FROM AMSTERDAM!!!!!! NEVER AGAIN. THE crew was snobby to so don't bother asking for anything extra. You'll get all attitude."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 12 hours. They didn't offer hotel rooms so we had to sleep on the floor of the airport (hundreds of passengers, including elderly and children). No communication. One person managing multiple delays, so rarely anyone at the desk to answer questions. Appalling."
Pros: "I liked the legroom even though we had a regular seat. We sat 2x2 seating and were very pleased. Some staff were nice. The price was a good deal. So it boils down to having mediocre for a bargain or nicer accommodations for more pricey fares. My husband thought it was very good though."
Cons: "Food was awful. Service for food and drinks took way too long. Why give food 20 minutes before you are giving a beverage? I have always had drink service prior to food. I did not understand this. Breakfast was a piece of "carrot cake" that looked like was picked up from the local jail in Toronto. Really my only complaint. Flight was bumby but not anyone's fault other than Mother Nature. Water in bathroom stopped working halfway through flight. Seats were not comfy as other airlines. My butt got numb somewhere around Greenland."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient as Option Plus board right after first class. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating: the worst I have experienced. Terrible in-flight entertainment system; poor video quality; everybody views the same movie as it was in the 80s unless you think to bring your own tablet. Barely passable food (warm sandwich) and breakfast consisted of a slice of cake."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was well organised."
Cons: "We boarded in time to fly at 10:05pm, however 7 passengers didn't turn up until almost 11pm. We weren't offered any snacks or drinks whilst waiting. Our 7 year old son spent most of this time desperate for the toilet but we weren't allowed. We all just wanted to go to sleep after a long day, I wanted to get to sleep because I faced 4 hours drive home after landing in London. We were served food and drinks at around midnight... I was asleep and was woken by a stewardess shouting "Would you like a drink" (not sure if she was speaking to me - but to be honest on a night flight I expected the aircrew to be a little more tactful). The cabin lights were eventually dimmed at about 1:30 for perhaps a couple of hours, when they were turned back on and we were served a slice of carrot cake for breakfast. The whole trip felt very bizarre, the opposite of the outbound trip where everything felt very special. After landing we retrieved our luggage only to find our cases were badly damaged, we've traveled with the same cases for the last five weeks during which time they have survived without a scratch."
Cons: "No complaints about anything at all"
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Cons: "The cabin was blazing hot and stuffy for the whole trip. The cabin crew for the most part struggled with faking the whole "nice and pleasant" part of their job. Really made you feel like you inconvenienced them if you ask them a question..... I only asked one, "what are the food options?" I didn't have a measuring tap to prove it, but the seats definitely felt tighter than most aircraft, and were very uncomfortable. I never have difficulty sleeping on a flight, even a Ryanair flight, but I along with half the cabin could not get comfortable enough to nod off on this flight. It was reassuring that I wasn't being overly picky when I saw half the cabin going through the same discomfort as me. Food was even worse than the usually bowel clogging garbage that you usually get elsewhere. All in all, if you are saving $400-500 flying with these guys might be worth the trip for you......do not penny pince and fly with them if the are $200 cheaper, absolutely not worth it. As for me I travel too much, and life is too short to have to put myself through that again."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Below average company"
Cons: "I was stuck in another city because a connecting flight was canceled so I never got on my flight to Rome. I didn't get a refund or credit or anything for my flight."
Pros: "The overall experience was so bad, that it is hard to think of anything positive.....oh, one thing. The beer they originally served me was room temperature and the kind stewardess went out of her way to get me a cold one."
Cons: "First off there was a 3 hour delay in the terminal at YYZ. Once on board, we sat at the gate for another hour (4 hour delay in total). Finally worst of all, since they are a "discount" airline, they fit in 9 seats per row as opposed to the usual 8 in an airbus 330, and I am sure more rows as well. (3x3x3 vs 2x4x2) I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and I had an aisle seat! The guy next to me was an elderly, portly Portuguese man, and because the seats are so narrow, he was spilling over into my seat (no fault of his own). Neither of us could nap And the fare was not particularly cheap at $580 one way. It was truly horrible. I arrived exhausted and am still recovering from jet lag"
Cons: "The plane was hot due to an AC issue that delayed the flight for almost two hours, and then continued to be hot throughout the duration of the flight. The crew was rude and not very accommodating. The in-flight entertainment and food service was not up to date and sub-par. There is little that could motivate me to fly Air Transat again."
Cons: "My bag was left back And I never got it!!! Horrible experience. I'm hoping to get it back tomorrow!"
Cons: "Wish we knew to download the app before the flight to benefit from streaming movies"
Pros: "Super new and clean planes. Crew extremely nice and the best entertainment package included!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Very budget food"
Cons: "We were an hour late boarding the flights. The chairs were also very uncomfortable and did not recline much; they were also so narrow."
Cons: "Food was horrible."
Pros: "Nothing wish I had other options at the time of booking to get to Montreal form Toronto."
Cons: "After waiting 6 hours for our connecting flight my husband and daughter had to witness the check in lady having a heated argument of how she had announced seating in both French and English when she did not announce it in English. Transat was terribly tardy on their check in so people was just increasing in number and the check in crew did nothing to assist with let folks know who was to board the plan first. It was just a mess, it really stressed out my daughter this was her first international flight and wished she had a more positive experience."
Delay after delay. No communication where gate was. Meal vouchers were offered after all the eateries had closed for the night. Just a brutal experience
Pros: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Cons: "Local travelers should be offered even water."
Cons: "Maybe the entertainment choices"
Pros: "Seat reclined far back"
Cons: "Entertainment limited, esp. when you consider passengers may have two or more legs on Brussels Airlines flights Boarding chaotic Some of the crew were rude/ dismissive of African or African-presenting passengers No blankets were passed out, despite the cold temperature on the plane. My bag was lost"
Pros: "Good movies."
Cons: "I called United to make sure there was a children’s meal for my 3 year old. There was not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Connecting gate was on the other side of the airport. We were running from one side of the airport to another. They should have provided a shuttle service for all of those passengers."
Pros: "Best Econ service for a long time.Beats the Comp hands down."
Pros: "It was Air Canada to Geneva and Swiss to Lisbon!"
Cons: "Leave on time Air Canada!!"
Pros: "The personnel AFTER passport control was wonderful, both airport and United. Passport control workers failed to recognize or help move us through to be able to board in time while they allowed other passengers to go ahead who had same departure. Plane waited 30 mins past take off for us."
Cons: "Brussels airport staff at pass control needed to acknowledge departure concerns to prevent plane delay of takeoff. Many passengers missed their connection in Chicago because of our delay boarding due to pass control wait and lack of help."
Pros: "flight was awesome"
Cons: "the only thing i dislike about etihad airlines is they didn’t provide me accommodation for 19 hours long stay over ..! even i met one of the lay incharge of etihad she told me that it’s your problem you have to look out for ...she didn’t help me at all"
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The flight was long and inexpect s to be fed. They didn’t provide free food and beverages."
Pros: "Brussels Airlines is the the step-child of Lufthansa basically. But on the transatlantic flights they do a very good job."
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "No food except for purchase. Expected at least cup of coffee/crackers"
Pros: "Kindliness of crew"
Cons: "Impossibility to by drinks or did with bank cards"
Pros: "My return trip didn’t have any major unexpected expenses the way my outgoing trip did."
Cons: "They broke a very expensive item that I purchased on my trip. It was properly wrapped and cushioned in clothing. I had fragile stickers on the outside of my luggage and it is shattered beyond repair."
Pros: "Good and nice Food, crew helps , comfort seat and Entertainment clean and new screens ."
Pros: "La atención, a diferencia de otras aerolíneas europeas se nota la sonrisa y gran atención."
Cons: "A la hora del despegue molestan mucho con las cosas."
Pros: "Entertainment options were awesome!!!"
Cons: "We left late because they were waiting for people from another flight that got canceled to transfer to our flight, and even with the delay, one of my bags got lost. I was the third person to check in for the flight, so I'm not sure how that happened."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "I was misinformed about the meal service in advance. But besides that I was satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Easy to cancel Trip"
Cons: "Kayak did not have a system of knowing that I cancelled the flights"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food was rubbish"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and friendly. Departure and arrival was on time."
Cons: "Very narrow and uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Even after meal request few days back, no veg meal available for this long journey"
Pros: "The pilot was good and made a smooth landing. The seat was comfortable enough because I had a pillow."
Cons: "My checked luggage got lost on a direct flight. That is unacceptable."
Cons: "1. During check in, they change my seat number that i choose during the reservation process from a front window seat to a rear isle seat 2. Flight was supposed to land in Hamburg. Because of a storm, they went to Hannover. They announced that the time we will stay in Hannover is unknown. Maybe 2 hours... but then no news from the crew during our stop. 3. Several passeNgers asked to get out in Hannover. The crew said they will ask if possible. After one hour waiting in Hannover they did not even ask the airport authorities. Passengers insisted. The crew then said no because they do not want to go through the luggage finding process. 4. Weather was too hot. Waiting time was too long. Passengers Needed drinks and food. Crew only sold these without even offering free snacks, sandwitches, or drinks. 5. Babies and kids were there. No food nor drinks. They survived during 5 extra hours on the plane schedule on biscuits and water. Personnel did not even think of ordering food from hannover airport while waiting there. They only SOLD the snacks they have. 6. We returned to humburg with 5 hours delay over our original schedule. Stayed 2 hours until we got our luggages on the belt 7. Some passengers had to go back to hannover by train. We discover that all trains were stopped die to problems caused by the storm on the railway. They had the choice either to take very expensive taxis or to sleep over in Hamburg!! 8. This could have been avoided if brussel airline had some good will to at least help those passengers get their luggage and leave in Hannover! 9. Overall: very bad experience and crue attitude in Brussel Airlines!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed and we had to spend time Waiting both in the terminal and the plane. But crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have been given a free snack or some water while waiting. We got a tiny chocolate which was nice but didn't make up for the waiting time"
Cons: "The same: food at extra cost"
Pros: "Check -in - very friendly staff Airport in Brussels was easy for making connection"
Cons: "The food was at extra cost - and pretty expensive. Not even water was offered free of charge. Was surprised that the food was on sale - nothing was said about it in advance."
Pros: "On time Polite crew"
Pros: "On time Polite crew They gave an "express pass" for people with short connection"
Cons: "- No order to the boarding in Brussels. I am used to boarding in zones so things tend to be less congested leading up to the jetway. - This may or may not have been something the airline could have changed but sitting in the plane for 5 hours waiting to de-ice was unacceptable. The entire food service was served in this time so no food was available for the 6 hour flight to Accra. Had we been able to wait in the terminal, passengers could get their own food and the food for the flight could have been saved. Also, they ran out of chicken dishes by the time I was served and I was left with fish only. Had I been a vegetarian, this would have been unacceptable."
Cons: "We got stuck on the plane for an additional 5 hours before take off because of the smallest amount of snow. Even knowing how much extra time they did not load any extra food on the plane. We finally took off only to be rerouted to Lome instead of Accra which took an additional 2 hours. The whole thing took an extra 7 hours. From 11am to 12:55 pm we were provided only 1 meal and ice cream. The staff were not apologetic at all, they said if we wanted to be mad at someone it should be the weather... They should probably go back to customer service school."
Pros: "leg space is quite big"
Cons: "the food was poor - Cold Pasta salad"
Pros: "The crew were very respectful and professional did not like everything from Accra to Brussels ."
Cons: "We pay the crew so they need to respect us. One guy among the crew members was very disrespectful and unprofessional ."
Pros: "Your airline 100% better then Air Canada."
Pros: "I flew on United, not Brussels, on this leg."
Cons: "We paid extra for economy plus, but they completely messed up that part of the reservation. Multiple phone calls and run around at the airport. The "upgrade " is a nice one but the hassle was stressful and still not sure if I'll get the $ straightened. Front of plane warm, but back cold."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, entertainment system is ok although a bit outdated."
Cons: "Our flight (operated by Air Canada) was delayed due to a control tower fire. Other flights seemed to have been delayed 1 or 2 hours, but ours was delayed 3.5 hours. That's not really the airline's fault, but it seems like they didn't want to communicate updates or give us any options for alternate flights. They also listed the delay at just under 3 hours, rather than the real 3.5 we were late leaving the gate (to avoid giving out vouchers, I suspect)."
Cons: "stuck between 2 overweight people with no possibility of moving because flight was fully booked."
Cons: "We found the crew to be abrupt in manner on both flights."
Pros: "I liked the multi-lingual flight attendants. Friendly and seemed to help everyone get what they need. Pilot performed a smooth landing and the flight was quite smooth."
Cons: "Aircraft need to stay grounded for 2 hours for repairs... After we already boarded! It was very hot, everyone was sweating profusely and facing themselves with magazines. The flight should have just been delayed and everyone should have waited in the comfort of the airport terminal to board later rather than suffering. The headrests are horrible. They jut out and but stress on you upper back, and force you to slouch, which hurts your lower back. I am a pretty resilient young dude, but even I was packing my sweatshirt, pillow, and blanket behind my back to make the seat mildly comfortable. A car style seat would have been much much more comfortable. Worst of all, I had a 12 hour layover, and during that time MY BAG DIDN'T EVEN GET PUT ON THE PLANE! I am on a budget so I couldn't buy toiletries and clothes to wear so I stank for days before my bags were located, brought from Toronto to Brussels, and then delivered to where I'm staying in Belgium. This is easily the worst flying experience I have ever had in my life."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Still don't know where my luggage was so this is an issue for me on all legs of flight"
Pros: "People were very nice. Food wasn't bad. We had a nice dinner and a breakfast when we arrived in Florence. Nothing gourmet but definitely decent food."
Cons: "not enough leg room. I had asked for seats with more leg room due to my medical condition and did not get any satisfaction"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. The food wasn't great and even on a flight that was at 75% capacity they ran out of food options."
