Communication at the gate was adequate. Boarding was orderly. Seats are decent, with a reasonable amount of leg room. Flight was only 1.5 hours, so only a modest snack service (short bread cookie or small bag of chips) and a drink (coffee, tea, soda, cup of beer or wine). Exiting the plane was also orderly. Overall the flight was fine and the price reasonable.
Pros: "Everything went as planned."
Cons: "USB or power outlets."
Pros: "Free wine and beer service"
Cons: "Gate agents, re-booking"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "The deboarding. I don't understand how the plane became inoperable only after we were backing out of the gate. Nothing done to compensate for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Friendly crew wick deplaning"
Cons: "$35 for a carryon is ridiculous. Do you really want your peer airline to be Spirit? Quote your all in price for fares."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing was bad"
Cons: "Justfly.com is awful and I wish kayak would stop sending customers to it. I will no longer use kayak because this is the second time my ticket has ended up being purchased through justfly."
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, leg room is really good and snacks."
Cons: "Delayed flight 45 minutes"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful with the situation and delay"
Cons: "The seats feel old and have a lot of wear in them. The plane does not seem clean. They joke about the fact that the delays happen often and they update delays very slowly."
Pros: "Free drinks."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "b/c i booked (at the recommendation of kayak), my flight was cancelled and i was refunded by airline. My return trip was not returned to me."
Pros: "Comments above apply to Toronto-Halifax flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed in 15 minute increments b/c of overheated planes until it reached 3 hours. Haven't you had summer before? Announcements about ongoing progress were infrequent. The waiting lounge was standing room only."
Pros: "Convenience of the airport location which is steps from downtown Toronto. Friendly crew and descent snacks."
Cons: "Porter flights are almost always delayed. I take them pretty often and they are almost never on time, especially the late afternoon / evenings flights. This time the plane had some problems with AC and was too hot."
Pros: "Crew is very polite and helpful. The truffles are awesome!"
Cons: "Frequent delays"
Pros: "The service once boarded was great. The flight attendants did a good job serving drinks and handing out snacks"
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 5:30pm, but we only left at 7:10pm. We were not told why our flight and the one prior left late. Luckily we did not have a connecting flight like some of the other passengers."
Pros: "Porter Airlines did a great job overall."
Pros: "The gate agent blocked the seat next to me aonI had the whole row to myself. Porter is the best way to get to Toronto from the Philadelphia and NY area"
Cons: "The flight attendant nearly took my hand off when offering the snacks. Usually the insist Intake more."
Cons: "Best crew flight attendant I have had in years on any airline"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "Need to rethink the winter schedule. Too much disruption with Porter. Flights can't be so dependent on the one just before. Schedule is set as if it is a clear day in the summer"
Pros: "Great service. Efficient."
Pros: "Fast check in and customs lines in both airports"
Cons: "The chips are pretty bland. I appreciate the free refreshments, but would like a bit of choice"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and friendly Loved the snack"
Cons: "No complaints!!"
Pros: "Once they were up and running, Porter was a great airline. Flight was short so i didn't expect anything fancy on the food menu anyway"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 5 times. Not a great first experience. Had an eerie likeliness of Spirit, which we all know is just not a real airline. not sure if I would fly again if that is the general perception of Porter airlines. I could care less about comfort as long as I get to where I am going on time, which I did not."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The check in process was good, attendant there was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the employee shouting out which rows were able to board. We couldn't get close enough to hear and they didn't have a microphone or loud speaker. The flight attendant who was working our flight was very abrasive and rude. We were asking if there was any additional bag storage and she said she didn't have time to help us."
Cons: "Small airport no amenities."
Pros: "It a nightmare experience. The flight was cancelled as we stood in line for boarding. I missed the second part of my flight to Quebec. It was the last flight out 12:30 pm!. There was no help. Come back go borrow was the.answer."
Cons: "The way the agents refused to help. Come back tomorrow is an incredible response when you ask for help."
Pros: "Literally nothing. Even the free beer and wine didn't make up for this company!!"
Cons: "Our flight to Chicago was cancelled, we didn't get so much as an email letting us know (checked the flight status at 1am for a 8am flight and it said on time) we found out at the porter counter at the airport that or flight was cancelled and we were delayed until the next day!!! Next day we realize they didn't schedule us on the first OR second flight of the day but the third so we were delayed by 36 hours instead of 24!!!! The planes are tiny, very old, quite dirty. The staff seem totally non chalant about all these cancelled flights and allllll of the delays and repeatedly say that the airline is understaffed... hello i don't care why my vacation was cut short by 36 hours and i got stuck paying 200$ for a hotel room tat i didn't get to stay in!!! Get your act together Porter!!!!"
Pros: "porter gives clients a civilized treatment because of its smallness and amenities"
Pros: "Excellent crew service , plenty of leg room & free drinks."
Cons: "Again late take off"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew. Also I had plenty of leg room & a real surprise was free drinks even on a short flight."
Cons: "Each of my flights was late."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and an earlier one with plenty of room the crew refused to book us on."
Cons: "Major delays. Flight hot. Crew very nice."
Cons: "Delayed for 60 min. Thought I was miss my connecting flight but it was also delayed...by 90 min!!!!"
Pros: "I loved the waiting area with free snacks and drinks while we waited for our next flight. So comfortable! I wish Porter had other flights in the United States :)"
Pros: "Customer service with flight attendants"
Cons: "Long lines"
Pros: "Like the complimentary lounge and good plane snacks. The crew was helpful and we were on time."
Cons: "The connection process was confusing. We were already at the gate we needed to be at but they made us go to a gate agent who simply walked us back to where we were originally standing."
Pros: "Seats were not cramped, plane was not full. Billy bishop airport is very easy to negotiate. Nice lounge with complimentary snacks. And they're even kosher!"
Pros: "Liked the fact that I flew out of Toronto Islands airport, was fast and easy with complimentary snacks while waiting at the gate. I had an early morning flight and so beat the traffic, as I'm sure that picks up later in the day. Online checkin was easy and simple. I did not have any check-in luggage, only carry-on, suspect that also made it easier. The Porter airlines support call center was very helpful and friendly There were complimentary coffee and snacks at the gate... was a really nice feeling. Liked the waiting area at the gates, comfortable seating. Plane was on time. No issues"
Cons: "I had an early morning flight, so traffic was very light, but suspect that later in the day. So taking a later flight on Porter may be problematic as getting to the airport would be more difficult. The language in the email ticket confirmation made me a little concerned, as it mentioned having to re-confirm the booking and being at the airport at least 3 hours ahead even though the flight time was only 1:05 hours etc. But after calling in to the support center, the concerns were cleared up."
Pros: "Professional staff, couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Turbulence, can't blame the small plane and the whining 40 year ol that made things so dramatic, grow up. I understand flights can be scary, yes I was a bit scared myself, but I did not feel the need to wheep so loud to freak everyone else out. Panicaning is the worst attribute any person could have. Best small airline I've ever flown with."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "No wifi or screen"
Pros: "That it was an hour flight and was late for more than hour."
Pros: "Love the ease of flying into Billy Bishop, the staff, the complimentary snacks at the airport lounge. All great!"
Cons: "Your pricing now is almost not distinguishable from AC's"
Pros: "Great waiting area"
Cons: "No good food options on layover in Toronto City"
Pros: "Easy flight out of Bully Bishop. Love the terminal service in Toronto. Free espresso, drinks, and snacks! On flight service in wonderful! Nice attendants, free wine, cozy chairs."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The plane is clean and comfortable. The boarding was easy."
Cons: "The staff on all SAS flights seem a little lazy."
Pros: "The seat was not as cramped as the Greenland Airways flight preceeding this."
Cons: "Not having additional fees for baggage. Please disclose that as part of the ticketing."
Pros: "A lot of seating space. very comfortable."
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi."
Cons: "We paid for meals that were NOT delivered"
Pros: "I had a middle row of seats that I was able to stretch out in and sleep."
Cons: "Better Food Choices...not everyone likes cheese!!!"
Pros: "On time. Good hardware."
Cons: "Priority passangers cannot board with their non priority partner, even on the sane reservation. Congratulations sas, only airline workdwide to prohibit this. Otherwise, also forgot my duty free bag at the gate and the crew refused to have me return for it or get it for me."
Cons: "We had to leave the airplane and board another one due to technical issues. This is the second time that that happens to me with SAS."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and no one notified me! Instead, FlyUs.com placed me on a different SAS flight that had a 15 minute layover in Copenhagen. Needless to say, I would have missed the flight from Copenhagen. I realized the issue the day-of, spent hours on the phone trying to book a different flight through the customer services at FlyUs.com (stupid company!), and was finally rebooked by SAS on a different airline. When I called SAS directly, they immediately took care of the situation and handled it well, but I wasted an entire day dealing with FlyUs.com, waiting on confirmation for a flight that I was never going to receive. The whole experience was awful."
Cons: "Delayed flight, missed connection, lost baggage."
Pros: "On Time, Friendly,well maintained equipment"
Cons: "No free drinks inner Europe...except water"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Counter selling me an upgrade that was more expensive than I prefer. I.e., buyers remorse"
Pros: "Really good price, excellent service."
Cons: "A silly point, but I would appreciate fewer announcements when I’m watching a movie. (Laughing out loud)"
Pros: "Efficient processing of passengers onto aircraft."
Pros: "The crew was so amazing and friendly!!"
Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."
Cons: "Crew not very friendly."
Pros: "Good boarding, crew nice and professional, lots of entertainment choices, plenty of bathrooms. Overall a very good flight."
Cons: "No opportunity to rest on flight back home and wine a bit expensive for a European flight."
Pros: "Transfer desk was remote but once found, staff was very good"
Cons: "Haven't made it yet due to late flight/missed connection"
Pros: "It was a normal flight, only a few hours long. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Once again, just some leg, and arm space issues but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Safe departure, flight and landing."
Cons: "An in flight breakfast snack would have been appreciated. The drinks served were okay. Nothing special."
Cons: "On time, efficient, friendly staff"
Pros: "Will choose SAS again."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work and movie selection could be a bit better. That's all."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment had a good variety of options to choose from. Passport control was timely. Food service was also timely and efficient."
Cons: "As with most airplanes, the air was quite cold, but the SAS blanket adequately made things a bit warmer. I'm always puzzled by the fact that once business class and SAS plus passengers board that SAS Go passengers can all then board. It would make more sense to have people board from the back during this time so that people don't block aisles and it makes arranging overhead baggage a bit easier."
Pros: "This was a direct Copenhagen to Boston flight run by SAS for Privatair. It was a small aircraft with only 70 total seats. That being said, the seats were comfortable, the service was wonderful, and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Inflight entertainment consisted of an iPad with very limited options. Only one non-alcoholic drink included with dinner, and purchase price of wine was the highest I have ever seen on a flight."
Pros: "SAS plane, customer service and meals."
Pros: "I have no complaints. Will recommend SAS to all my friend. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office never returning phone calls as we are trying to get our questions answered. Would also be nice if the airline would use JFK instead of Liberty in Newark. Thank you."
Cons: "Got delayed 13-hours in an airport with no SAS staff present to communicate anything to all of the passengers. We were not accommodated with hotel vouchers or provided with alternative travel options to our final destinations and missed flights. SAS did not cancel the flight after the first 4-hours of delay which is illegal by EU Standards. None of us were able to leave the airport as we were not told any information about potential flight departure times and it would have been $2000 to re-book with a different airline. No answers were given by SAS over the phone and their staff seemed unaware of any problems."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and professional."
Cons: "Only offered coffee and tea during meals."
Cons: "Not water for children."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "We departed almost 3 hours late. No explanation given over speaker. No compensation, no apologies."
Pros: "Nothing to be honest"
Cons: "Checkin was a disaster, girl was not aware of anything she was doing and after over ten minutes of explainatiin she still put me and my bags on a wrong flight. Lady at the boarding gate tried to help and finally managed to send me and my bag in the same flight. Even bigger disappointment was that I booked a business class seat and paid three times more money then a normal economy ticket, there wasn't any business class seat and all seats were occupied in the front rows. Staff was generally rude and not willing to help."
Cons: "A landing card us required from each non EU passport holder. No mention of this was ever made, and we stood in front of an open customs desk filling out the forms we could have done at leisure during the flight. A lot of other stuff was poor -- seat pitch, no free food, etc. but this was one simple thing other airlines usually do."
Pros: "Was able to selct my seat"
Cons: "Had to pay €70 to check in luggage - most expensive ive ever seen! No beverages other than coffee and tea abailable, water could be appreciated"
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Cons: "Entertainment systems were not working for many of us."
Pros: "personnel is very courteous."
Cons: "cofee is terrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Pros: "The crew was very kind!"
Cons: "Tiny seats and no free drinks on an international flight....whats up with that?"
Pros: "The entertainment system is among the best of airlines."
Cons: "The Lufthansa representative in Frankfurt made me check one of my bags, when SAS clearly said I was allowed to have one carry-on and one personal item. This was not a Lufthansa flight, but the rude attendant insisted on enforcing Lufthansa rules on an SAS flight and refused to even allow me to voice an objection. I will not fly Lufthansa ever after this. SAS should have its own representatives who understand customer service at all gates."
Pros: "Flight was perfect, but..."
Cons: "I prefer to fly with SAS or Staralliance, so I was happy to by this ticket, but when booked it never said it didn´t include luggage. I was then billed at the airport and can exspect the same leaving Nice. I will make a claim because I consider this a fraud. You could at least have mentioned this on the booking before payment, so I could have made my booking elsewhere."
Pros: "Nothing , it was terrible flight ."
Cons: "I bought full price ticket, not STAND BY SAS DIDN'T LET CHECK IN MY FLIGHT FROM RIGA to SAN DIEGO. So I have problem everywhere . In Oslo I was waiting for my seat more than one hours. I very often was SAS, it was good, but never ever I will use this company again."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a girl who was not part of my family who got airsick 3 times on the flight. The first time I told the airline attendant and she brought a large plastic bag and some paper towels. The girl but her used airsick bag inside the large plastic bag. I tied the top and put in next to me near the aisle because I expected the attendant to come pick it up. The attendant told me I had to take it to the lavatory and dispose of it in there. It was very hard to get the large plastic bag into the small trash receptacle because it had fill with air. I asked the attendant for another airsick bag but she never brought it. The girl got sick again and she used my airsick bag. While walking the bag up to the lavatory, I asked a different attendant for another airsick bag. They just told me I had to dispose of it in the lavatory and never brought another airsick bag. I had to ask someone for their airsick bag because the girl got sick a third time. I can not believe the horrible service on this flight! The poor girl was crying because she felt so sick and there wasn't anyone to help her. I did what I could but I felt something could have been done by the crew. I will think twice before I reserve another flight on SAS."
Pros: "I requested a gluten free meal and was happy with it."
Cons: "leg room was a bit tight"
Pros: "Entertainment facilities was user friendly, but program too few."
Cons: "Bad management system, luggage even lost in transfer to Stockholm, also SAS but operated by Air China ( transferred in Beijing, from Taipei.)"
Cons: "I arrived in Copenhagen with no ticket. I was unable to print my connecting ticket in Gdansk and the woman at the SAS counter in Gdasnk could not help me either. When I landed in Copenhagen, I had several hours before the next flight. I went through immigration and went to the SAS counter where my gate was. Woman told me I could not print the ticket there until an hour before the flight, but if I wanted to go back through immigration, I could get it printed there. I opted to just wait. One hour before the flight there was a huge line of people like me who had not tickets. I stood for about 30 minutes until I finally got it. Then flight was delayed an hour... Everyone was really nice and the flight was enjoyable, I just don't get what the heck is up with their ticketing system. Why can't I print a ticket at any SAS counter with printing capabilities? Why doesn't the phone app work? Why can I print connecting flights at kiosk?"
Pros: "I was informed by email the evening before my return flight back to London that the flight had been cancelled. I tried calling multiple SAS offices overnight, and finally reached someone the morning of my flight and was rebooked to a different flight, via Berlin. When I got to the airport the booking hadn't been updated, so I had to go through the entire process again with customer service. Because of the flight cancellation and the difficulties rebooking, I was not able to book my luggage so I was charged a penalty fee at the airport when I was finally checked in for the flight via Berlin, and paid much more for my bag than I should have."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There was a huge delay so i got to Haugesund 2 hours later than I expected."
Pros: "Economy seats were roomy. Crew very nice and attentive."
Pros: "I love that you fly from Hartford. It makes my travel to Europe so much easier! Thank you!!!!"
Cons: "Our flight seemed to have only 1 toilet at the back of the plane that passengers were allowed to use so there was always a line. There was a second toilet in the crew area at the back and it seemed that they could have offered passengers to use that."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "I can't think of a thing"
Cons: "Flight was late due to earlier mechanical error. These things happen but still annoying when they do. Crew didn’t seem too bothered."
Pros: "Everything about this booking was a disaster. Not the least of which is that my bags are still on London and are total travel time will end up being about 24 hours returning."
Cons: "Forced to board a bus and sit in an empty terminal. Paid for priority boarding but wasn't called for it. Pretty disorganized. Good flight but gate crew needs work."
Pros: "Seats were better than the international leg."
Cons: "Everything. Offer at least a drink - all drinks were a charge. Staff was rude. Also they lost our luggage."
Pros: "Quick boarding, kind crew"
Cons: "All food and drinks for a cost. I had to run to make it to my gate which was quite a distance and a shuttle ride away."
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Pros: "All good, excellent crew."
Cons: "After awhile Seats were a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "fantastic customer service"
Cons: "wouldve loved to have been left breakfast while i slept"
Pros: "very friendly staff great flight with nice tech made trip fly by"
Pros: "The service. Excellent"
Cons: "Pay for the food. LOL."
Pros: "Average flight to get you where you want to go. air hostess was helpful."
Cons: "Forgot my luggage in Toronto. This is the second time with aer Lingus in the past 8 month. Had to pay for my seat and baggage on top of ticket price, was unaware."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The confort of thé seats. Way too tight for a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "No free food or drink service."
Cons: "The chairs are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "No complimentary free alcoholic drink with your meal on the Aer Lingus Flight."
Cons: "I was fine with a 5 hour delay I was fine with my bags not being on the same flight as me I am not fine with finally receiving my bags 24 hours later soaking wet. Everything it dripping. I still have nothing to change into now and there was no compensation offered whatsoever. Never flying with this airline again."
Cons: "Missed the flight."
Pros: "Timeliness of flight and service on board."
Cons: "We upgraded 7 travelers for priority boarding. However as we got through check in, 2 of us were told we had to check our carry on. Mind you our carry on was the same size (exact same suitcase) as 2 others in our party who did not have to check in their bags? "Priority Boarding is now only €4.99. Be the first on board to store your cabin bag and relax in your seat before take-off." I believe I am entitled to a refund based on the info on above taken directly from the Aer Lingus website."
Cons: "Being charged $100 each way for checked baggage, no where on my itenerary did it mention that"
Pros: "I flew overnight from Toronto, Canada to Dublin and had a relatively pleasant experience. The food and drink trolleys came by quite quickly and frequently, and the food exceeded my expectations. The crew was friendly, for the most part. Boarding certainly could've been smoother... But overall, I'd fly Aer Lingus again for an overseas trip."
Cons: "Free-for-all boarding was less than ideal. Boarding by seat rows as on Boston to Dublin flight would have been better."
Pros: "Great seats plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The food... Yikes"
Cons: "Missing connecting flight"
Cons: "they charged me 100 dollars to check a bag - nothing at all about this during my purchase. i am so mad at these guys."
Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Dublin airport is cold. Security between plane in correspondance area to crowded and unnecessary."
Cons: "The good part was that I paid for what i received. So anyway why do I complain."
Cons: "Short flight so N/A on food and entertainment. Crew were much nicer and friendly than our first leg of the trip."
Cons: "It was like squeezing everyone into a cattle truck and airport crew double book seats of a few passengers on a full flight so there was confusion on board"
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment selections are extremely limited and poor. Food is mediocre and not even comparable to other international Airlines business class standards"
Pros: "the timeliness of the airline in leaving and arriving at the ports, providing meals for the passengers,"
Cons: "breakfast was not given to some of us as the air hostesses said that they ran out of food"
Pros: "On time delivery"
Cons: "How many seats can you cram in to an airline cabin? So tightly packed it indicates a base level of disregard by the company for their customers. And nothing offered that didn't cost (no coffee, water...)"
Pros: "Fast and efficient crew"
Cons: "A going-through-the-paces flight and incredibly expensive beer and wine."
Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."
Cons: "I can't actually make a comment on the food since u have to pay for it and I didn't want to. Nothing appealed enough to pay for it. Entertainment wise, there was no entertainment so I have it one star"
Cons: "Too cold"
Cons: "Not even free water"
Pros: "Nothing. I flew with West Jet. Their review shall be posted on their forum"
Cons: "The abrupt cancellation"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing a week after my flight arrived and no news about it. I can't get in touch with anyone from the airline or who can help me. Pretty terrible experience."
Cons: "We arrived at Dublin airport two hours before our flight--as instructed--and had to enter an enormous line. Finally, we were instructed to leave the line after almost an hour and a half and were then informed that our tickets had been sold to someone else (we were bumped!). Aer Lingus tried to "normalize" this by explaining that they always "overbook" by 10%. How irresponsible! Instead of arriving in Paris at 4:30 PM (a direct flight) we had to take a flight to London and then to Paris and arrived at 11 PM exhausted (the bus service to Paris had closed down and we had to take a taxi). We will never fly Aer Lingus again. Aer Lingus created the long line to create this very situation!"
Pros: "check in process was easy"
Cons: "Our 2 carry-on bags were moved to checked in just before we got in. We were told that it was because it was a full flight. So what do I see in the overhead bins? 2 carry ons with "crew" tags. What bulls**t. This was a very good airline 20 years ago. Not anymore"
Pros: "The flight was so short that the food and entertainment part of this survey are. It applicable. They did serve food for purchase though and they had some good choices"
Pros: "From the moment I arrived I felt very taken care of. Plenty of seating in lounge, with many of them facing runway. People were friendly and accommodating. Food was average. On aircraft, the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "------- we were very cold on the plane . ."
Pros: "Have traveled many long haul flights with various airlines in past 6 months. The Aer Lingus food was significantly better than the others. Very tasty."
Cons: "Not enough seating at gate in Dublin and the space needs updating. A complimentary beer or wine with the meals, as provided by other carriers, would be nice."
Pros: "What do you say about that loses you luggage both directions. It isn't reliable so that's it for me with aer Linus."
Cons: "I remember Aer Lingus being a quality airline that treated passengers well. Now charging for tea and water, and exorbitant fees for bags? Felt like Ryanair. If I want to feel like bottom of the barrel I'll just take them next time!"
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks. I expected at least water and a small snack."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was required to gate check a bag, previously okay to bring on board, and it was lost upon arrival."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The price was good, the crew was friendly, and the on-line check in process was smooth."
Cons: "Non-functional entertainment consoles..so we could not watch anything, use our reading lights, adjust the temp, or summon staff if we needed to. With a bar in the middle of my foot space, there was no space under my seat for my personal item; No food on an international flight also disappointing."
Cons: "We had a different plane with narrow seats - ok for me but not the person beside me. Nothing but tea or coffee - all food and beverage had to be purchased. My experience. Uncomfortable and hungry."
Pros: "Fly Saga business.... exceptional food and service."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Comfort in seating was lacking, also having the luggage sitting out in the rain for 20 minutes was not ideal."
Cons: "Needed a little more space."
Pros: "Overall nice service"
Pros: "Very speedy embarkation process"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable, no snacks were offered at all unless you paid for food, & we had to get off the plane in Iceland on the runway & walk to a bus that took us to the terminal."
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
Cons: "No food goingacross"
Cons: "Lost luggages"
Pros: "I like we had more room. How’s that possible for a shorter flight?!?"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Pros: "Efficient short connection in Reykjavik. Also the luggage made it to the next flight."
Cons: "No instruction on use of shared video. No headset. Music?"
Cons: "This airline is the actual worst. Never taking it again."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment was excellent. We are both tall and we offered longer legroom seats at checking! Only good for purchase on board so we are before boarding. We purchased a light snack on the second leg of the trip. It hit the spot. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "It was all good!"
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is very crowded. All the seats were taken, and it was even hard to find a place to stand without being in the way."
Pros: "No pillows or blankets in seats, had to get your own or ask."
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Pros: "Planes are nice. USB charge ports and entertainment is awesome."
Cons: "Boarding process needs more organization. It was basically a free for all."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The baggage check was a problem. Self check is at Keflavik airport is required. After printing the self check tags all of the baggage drop point systems failed for about 30 minutes. After repeated re-boots the systems would work intermittently. Initial check in to the gate took about 90 minutes."
Pros: "This airline has so much going for it!... Pleasant staff, nice touches for overnight flight (bottled water as we entered the plane, pillow, blanket), plenty of legroom, TVs in the seat backs that work perfectly! What a treat!"
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."
Pros: "They had great menu options. Good price on alcohol if you want to drink also a really superb selection of spirts to choose."
Cons: "Small aircraft should not put three people to a row."
Cons: "Doing things on time seems to be a concept they don't grasp; boarding seems to happen at the time they state for departure (but that isn't what your ticket says). Explain to me how you can have all your big flights departing at the SAME TIME? Gates are close together for big flights with very little seating area so people are milling about confused about which line is which and not wanting to sit on the dirty floors."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly and accomodating. On tome, excellent entertainment ."
Cons: "Only annoyance was non bridge boarding, needing to get bus to board"
Cons: "They did not call for rows so it was mass chaos especially when our gate line crossed with another boarding at the same time. They have a lot of flights leaving at the same time and it could be a much better boarding process."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. There were no surprises."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick. There was a lot of room on the plane."
Cons: "There was some confusion at the Iceland airport because there were two gates areas close together that provided a place to wait for a bus to take passengers to the plane. Our flight was delayed and there were no announcements until after it should have taken off. In the end, it was only delayed 50 minutes. There were people from another flight mixed in with our line and they nearly missed their own plane. It would have reduced stress to have more direction from the staff."
Pros: "sufficient room for legs (my height is 1,78)"
Cons: "An entertainement digital tablet is available on demand. Nevertheless, the proposed films and music aim almost exclusivment Icelandic public"
Cons: "No food and the movie selection"
Pros: "Uncomfortable plane."
Cons: "Non-smiling and unfriendly flight attendants in Business Class. A delayed bag had all my fiancés clothes. Bag was supposed to be delivered next day, but it may take 3 days. Icelandair staff are not making it a priority. Very long wait times on their customer service number too."
Pros: "food in terminal was over priced and poor quality deplaning via stairs was ugly and being bus to terminal was bad, when we arrived at the terminal we could not get in then we were locked in a hall way"
Cons: "It's fine if you miss your connection in Iceland to France because you can wait around for the next flight 8 hours later. If the original flight didn't have a delay of 1.5 hours things would have been smooth. Every flight from Icelandair was late and they don't give you an update as to why. The crew told some white lies to make us believe we wouldn't have a problem making our connection."
Cons: "I was delayed 9 hours due to a strike, including a 7 hour layover with no offer of compensation or assistance."
Pros: "I slept the whole flight. Did not need any assistance or entertainment"
Pros: "A surprising amount of legroom! The flight was incredibly well managed. We were well taken care of and everything was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "The gate at Keflavik had nowhere to sit. I prefer some sort of included food, but all of it requires payment--even little snacks."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No passenger bridge at Keflavik. Had to use gate that is undergoing renovation for Paris leg. No free water bottle on this leg."
Cons: "Hearded through constuction with poor directions and had to ride a bus and stand outside for 20 minutes in Iceland at 5 am trying to board a plane."
Pros: "Yes, it was comfortable and they r nice."
Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"
Pros: "I lost the flight????"
Pros: "The in flight snack was surprisingly diverse and tasty."
Cons: "We had to take a bus from the gate to the plane, which is fine. But we stood on the bus at the gate for 10 minutes after it was completely full before it finally drove to the plane. Then when we were just outside the plane we had to wait again for several minutes before they would let us off."
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: "Plane was fairly modern inside with power sockets and usb sockets for each seat."
Cons: "Checkin was a total computer and staff failure. Checkin staff really bad and unhelpful Boarding was late. Mechanical delays over an hour. Late flight. Flight attendants forcing you to put bags under seat in front of you instead of overhead bin. Bad lunch. Some attendants poor attitudes."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"
Pros: "The overall experience was great"
Cons: "It was indeed a good experience"
Cons: "The entertainment is very poor. The programs are not on demand and the screeen is old, small and very poor quality. The A330-200 I flew from Boston to Lisbon was excellent and had the new lie flat seats and on-demand entertainment. Big difference between the two airplanes."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I had to pay to check the first piece of luggage 85€ one way. I was not inform of that when I bough the ticket and I could have chosen a different airline If I had considered that expense. The first piece used to be free intercontinental flights but now it varies depending on the company. I find difficult to find this information when buying and it makes a great difference in the final price you pay. I found strange flight attendants having a very loud conversation in a very quiet flight where most of the people were sleeping."
Pros: "Probably won’t buy from Kayak again."
Cons: "Charged double for baggage on moble check in. Called 3 times - spent over an hour to find out since I bought discount tickets no refunds for excess baggage. I didn’t want excess baggage their website automatically charged double - website said ecess charged automatic when checking in. Won’t use kayak again."
Cons: "Flight was late which seems to be a standard with TAP."
Pros: "You can charge your devices (only in one plains from London to Portugal)"
Cons: "Cabin crew were far from welcoming when dealing with the African passengers (including me though I'm Spanish) the food was a disgrace On a 5 hour flight to Accra there was no entrainment, the chairs were incredibly uncomfortable and you could not even charge your devices... The food arrive way too early. I believe the airline has put less of an effort on these planes due to the nature of the passengers... I have been traveling for 20 years and I never felt so disappointed by an airline... I will not use this airline ever again"
Cons: "Two TAP flights today. Both flights delayed more than an hour."
Pros: "Nice crew, tasty snack, new plane with comfortable seats"
Cons: "Huge bag charge for anything over 8 kg! Sign said last call 40 min before flight when agent told us to check board 30 min before flight for gate assignment!"
Pros: "All except for service to handicapped."
Cons: "I mad reservation listing that I needed wheel chair assistance due to walking limitations. Upon flight arrival no service was provided not was it provided on my return trip."
Cons: "Flight was canceled which was out of their control. Unfortunately, what wasn’t out of their control was the amount of people handling the rebooking. One person was handling alternate flights. I was the 6th person in line (which was the time equivalent of an hour and half wait. I missed all possible reroutes due to flights closing. The customer service of tap airlines is severely lacking"
Pros: "Free food and drinks. Pillow and blanket and ear buds all ready on each seat! More spacious seating."
Cons: "No indication booking was discounted flight on kayak website! Charges for baggage very , very high!. Very bad border crossing as we waited in line for a simple passport stamp for 3 hours!!!!!!"
Pros: "Good food serving times."
Cons: "The hospitality of the airline crew is very poor as they are extremely rude to their customers. The planes I flew on were very out of date and not comfortable for international travel. I have flown on many airlines, but these planes were by far the worst. Cheap price, for a reason. The seats didn’t recline, the food was terrible, no options were given for food, and the movies were pre-picked. No one had a choice in what they watched. Very outdated. I had 2.5 hours to board my connecting flight and they caused me to miss it. As I waited in the customs line entering Lisbon, I asked a TAP representative if I’d have to get out of the line up and go right through as my flight left at 2:10 pm. They said you will make it, stay in line. I get near the front of the line 2 hours later... hundreds of people were in this line and they only had 2/10 customs agents available!!! I ask another representative how far my gate is since my flight leaves in 30 min and she told me “no you missed it. but don’t worry others will be missing it too”. So no I did not miss it, you caused me to miss it cause I already asked if I would and you people told me no. I run to the gate, which has now changed to the other end of the airport, so I run to that gate and it is 10 min before the flight is to take off. I ask the desk agent at the gate and he tells me the flight has already left. Others had missed it too due to the insane customs line up. So the plane left 20 mins earlier than scheduled with only half it’s passengers..... unbelievable!!! When I went to the service desk they did not show any sympathy or apologetic behaviours whatsoever."
Pros: "The check in was smooth and boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had problems with TAP up front related to baggage fares and them keeping the $85 I paid for my son who is 2 meters tall to be in an exit row and then assigned to a different seat. He was miserable for almost seven hours."
Cons: "Boarding was refused at gate due to late arrival of previous flight which was also a TAP flight. No assistance to delay following flight or accelerate our deplaning even though the next identical flight was three days later."
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: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Cons: "They were lying about a supposed compensation for denied boarding which was supposed to be handed out in Lisbon. I didn't expect this behavior from grown up people, and such a company in Europe. TAP should be excluded from star alliance."
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: "Luckily had a 4 seater row for us 2 only."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours leaving Lisbon due to mechanical failure. As a hub more planes should be readily available."
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: "Food is worst I ever had in business class in 15 years of frequent flying. Worse than even many economy classes. Worse than many shirt hauls. Service is poor. Seats are super old. Only upside: on time"
Cons: "Nothing to like here except timeliness"
Cons: "Some delays at the airport but service is excellent."
Pros: "The trip was perfect. My bag does not think the same way."
Cons: "Everything was perfect until I receive my bag and notice that two (2) items were missing: my snorkeling face mask, and my camera's tripod. Who is responsible for this? How can I be happy with this?"
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Boarding went smoothly, the food , beverage , and the entertainment was good."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly , there were sandwiches passed out and drinks which was great!"
Cons: "The chairs were small and we didn't have very much legroom"
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."
Cons: "Carrying your luggage downstairs is crazy. And then taking a crammed bus to board the plane -- seems very 1960's"
Cons: "I was so dissatisfied with the customer service and lack of help provided after a FULL and LARGE flight was cancelled to Lisbon (then ultimately to Rome for me). I would like a FULL refund for my flight plus my miles accredited to my account for the full trip to Rome."
Pros: "+ quick and easy flight + Snack was okay"
Cons: "- Difficult to find TAP to get boarding pass. The boarding pass is necessary for Wifi in the airport."
Pros: "My wife needs help getting around but they placed us in the last row. No leg room again either. The crew was understanding and helpful."
Pros: "More legroom than a standard US commuter flight, and food also was better."
Cons: "Checking a bag took about 45 minutes even though I had already checked in and prepaid for my checked luggage..."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "No air from above. Just an all around bad flight with so many problems."
Pros: "Not much. Lunch"
Cons: "We paid to check the bag In and when we arrived the girl could not see this. We showed her clearly the paper then she charged ya and realised she had made a mistake but couldn't refund us. Terrible experience. Don't use the."
Cons: "i could had something sweet, but it was ok anyway"
Cons: "Boarding awful. Freezed in the cabin as "It's better for the crew." Flight overbooked - nothing was done to accommodate the people without tickets. They just put you in their next flight. They do not try to seat you with the other airlines! The board crew is hit or mis. Once on the continental flight I called for service from about the beginning of the flight- no one came to check why did I call for help. Bad service! Just before landing one of the crew members turn off my request sign without even asking me. So, no more TAP for me..."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, and the food and wine were good."
Cons: "Almost not enough leg room to fit in the seat, boarding was a confusing process on both legs."
Cons: "Sandwich served was a bit bleak but it was served with a glass of wine!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again."
Pros: "Timely check-in, on-time arrival, prompt disembarkation using 2nd stairway at back, courteous service."
Pros: "Service was excellent, amazing airline."
Cons: "The pitch between seats was extremely narrow! It was impossible to pick up things that fall down on the floor when the next seat was reclined. The screen in the back of next seat row (my entertainment screen) does not have an adjustment making it difficult to view when the front passenger leans the back of his seat"
Cons: "The crew was rude, after 5 hours they seemed annoyed when I asked for water and gave me half a cup after I had just finished vomitting due to all the swaying of the aircraft. While we were landing, we came over the runway maybe 100 feet off the ground then jetted back up and circled around the airport for 20 minutes before landing horribly...with NO explaination. Everyone started vomitting because the landing (both times) were so horrible. Our first flight was late, we landed when the second was 'closing the doors', they never updated the monitors or informed the crew that the second plane was also delayed (by over an hour), so we rushed through customs and ran through the airport only to discover they hadn't even started boarding yet, even though the screen said it had departed. Completely disorganized."
