Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great smooth flight, crew were friendly and many movies and shoes to choose from."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not much leg room for the unfortunate ones who fly Economy class. Food was ok."
Pros: "The food was great and the other flight attendants were kind and understanding."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was of an older demographic who was extremely rude to me and not accommodating at all to myself, my husband, or my children. She had an attitude and seemed irritated by my questions, concerns, and overall being there. We had an issue with seating and no seats together with our 4 and 7 year old."
Cons: "Nothing. The best airline I've flown across the board."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Lost our bags"
Pros: "Crew was attentive to passenger needs in a quiet way: without fanfare, did all possible to make it a pleasant, comfortable trip. In fact, went out of their way to get me a wheelchair ride to next flight, which I dearly needed"
Cons: "First flight was delayed due to circumstances outside of airline’s control. They managed to get us there and help me with wheelchair, etc to make flight. Great service and kindness"
Pros: "I do not know how to go about contesting his, but we bought 4 tickets to South Africa on Swiss air and Edelweiss via Zurich. We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."
Cons: "We purchased the last two again and when we showed up at the ticket counted they let us know that we bought 6 tickets!!!!!!!! We would like to be reimbursed for the two tickets we did not receive the confirmation emails for. How can we go about it?"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The plane was small, it rattled and shook a lot and the size of the seats is ridiculous. The bathrooms did not have warm water and the sense of comfort is to be found only in business and first class. We fly to Zurich a lot because we have family there and we always take SWISS for a direct flight. They have old planes, the little TVs by the seats may or may not work and although the crew is nice and well trained, they cannot substitute for the discomfort of 10 hours flights in a crammed place. Sorry SWISS."
Pros: "the premium economy section was very pleasant, well worth the $150 upgrade price. Though they should have included priority boarding."
Cons: "One hour delay in boarding, two hours sitting on the tarmac due to cargo loading and overweight issues. No notices, very poor communication."
Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."
Pros: "Class staff"
Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"
Cons: "Entertainment screen didn't work properly to rewind & fast forward. boarding time was printed as 1 hour prior to takeoff but occurred 20 min. prior. pleasant crew and decent food."
Pros: "Very professional!"
Pros: "The crew took very good care of us with food and drinks"
Cons: "Updates by the captain about the situation were too few, too infrequent."
Pros: "Easy check in. Crew efficient and personal attention."
Pros: "Service was great with staff being very professional Flights were on time and entertainment selections were good."
Pros: "Very friendly and excellent service. It was my first experience flying with Swiss. Will definitely fly with them again. Brest airline I've taken to Europe. This airline should be called tthe friendly skies of Europe. They are outstanding."
Cons: "The trip coming back to Chicago was a bit longer than going. The excellent service tgay eas provided by the crew made up for tgay."
Pros: "Everything is great when flying Swiss. From online checkin to boarding and throughout the flight. Thumbs up to Swiss. Simply a delight."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "We got to Rome airport 4 hours before to not miss flight! They booked us with 45 min to connect in Zurich. Then flight from Rome kept getting delayed with no explanations. We got to Zurich with 30 minutes to go. We literally ran to get to gate E. We got no help from Swiss employees and got to our gate with 10 min before flight. They said gate was closed. Went to transfer desk, next flight was next day at 1 pm. Missed very important meeting at work that I had planned around for months. Very upset and disappointed. Felt they could have helped us a lot more and got us on our flight."
Pros: "The seat is designed beautifully. Staff and crew incredibly nice."
Cons: "Movie and TV choices were so limited. You really need to add more options. I found only 1 movie I liked."
Pros: "Passengers completely ignored the commands of the crew and crew was unable to take control of the crowd (passengers refused to follow crew's multiple demands to sit down during the high turbulence, finally crew gave up to force passengers to take a sit). Several times, standing passengers fell on the sitting ines. When at the end of the flight, the issue was pointed out to the captain and supervising flight attendant, both became aggressively defensive to the point of being rude."
Cons: "Too narrow seats."
Cons: "1stly the lady at the check in was not nice [ i should have gotten her name -] she was rude and quite 'authoritarian' which is uncalled for- when you have paid an expensive ticket are just trying to check in. then I checked an extra bag - and could not pay where i checked in. i had to go to another counter to pay - there was a line and it took a good few extra minutes - and i still had to get thru security. if you can pay at the check in counter this would avoid this extra step. i was really not happy about it swiss air needs better efficiency and better customer service"
Pros: "Loved the cute attendant we had on flight :)"
Cons: "Old TV screen and remote"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Cons: "Once again, I paid extra to select my seats and once again they did not honor that. I paid extra for an aisle and a window seat and we were put in that horrid middle seat area. The video/television screens in our row were broken the entire flight. The attendants kept telling us they would be fixed soon and they never were. There was one attendant who was nice and the rest were rude and unhelpful. We arrived in Boston 2 1/2 hours late. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Went great, no complains"
Cons: "HOT turkey sandwich"
Pros: "Nothing distinguishes itself for better or worse than usual in coach."
Pros: "I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'breakfast' for the overnight flight was more of a throwaway: muffin, granola bar, fresh fruit cup. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "$35 per flight leg (Lufthansa policy) to choose seats was distinctly annoying. I didn't know when I booked the flights, so the surprise $70 add-in (for round trip definitely would have figured into the price/schedule choice in the first place."
Pros: "The service and hospitality"
Pros: "Flight crew and gate agents were amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was late and we were asked to stand in line down the hallway for an extended period of time Movie selection small"
Pros: "Seat spacing better on the short flight than the long flight -- where is the Swiss logical thinking ---- apparently this is a myth"
Cons: "Swiss boarding is a Charlie Foxtrot"
Pros: "El espacio dentro de la cabina y la atención de la tripulación. Me informaron de la inmediatez de mi siguiente conexión"
Pros: "The thing I liked most was being offered water routinely. I think I had the options to have a glass of water six times on my flight. For some reason flying really dries me out - so I really appreciated that. The seats were more spacious than the average flights I take. There were lots of movie options. There was more than enough space in the overhead compartment. I"
Cons: "Through no fault of the airline, there was a strong thunderstorm that delayed our flight. Little information was provided about the situation. It was obvious that we could not fly in the storm, but we were not informed about the likely departure time. The reason I gave a poor ranking is that my suitcase/pack must have been left out in the downpour on the top of the pile so all of my clothes were extremely wet when I reached Boston. The bag itself was wet so it was not a case of something leaking in the bag. I have had to wash all of the clothes and iron them."
Cons: "My baggage never made it on my first flight due to a strike by Swiss airlines crew. The flight was delayed and we were told it was because there was less crew and it was taking some time to get our baggage on the plane. Due to the delay, I missed my connecting flight and was rescheduled for a flight the following day. When I went to get my checked bags, I was told they never made it on the plane and were indefinitely in the first city (Barcelona). I was told to file a complaint once I got home (US) and then they'd forward the bag to me. I did not receive my bags until 5 full days later, in which I had to call every single day and ask to place more request to move the bags from one city to the next. If I hadn't stayed on top of it, I surely would not have received my bags. Also, when I checked my bags in Barcelona, I had to pay an extra 75 Euros for having a second bag although the weight limit was not surpassed. The guy at the counter was really nice and didn't want to charge me but due to the strike, the policy was really strict on a one bag limit. That I understand, but I did file a complaint and request to be refunded that 75 Euros since the service that I paid for was not completed on their end until 5 days later. I'm really hoping they refund me but not gunna bet on it."
Cons: "Narrow feeling seat"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food!"
Cons: "NO INTERNET!!!"
Pros: "The staff were very attentive, there was a free meal - a nice quality (fresh) panini with chicken ant then they came around with beautiful swiss chocolates. best experience on a short flight."
Pros: "That I was able to get the front seat with the extra legroom at no extra charge. I also liked that the take off and landing were smooth. As was the flight in general. Also, the Swiss chocolate was good."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable! The overnight flight from Boston to Zurich was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. There is no legroom. And the seats are incredibly narrow. When the person in front of me had their seat reclining I had even less room. Horrible. The only reason the flight from Zurich to Boston wasn't quite as bad was because I was able to get the seat by the exit aisle with extra legroom. The food was terrible. It didn't taste like real food. It looked and tasted totally artificial. Overall, a very poor experience."
Cons: "Even though I ordered in plenty of time, I was not on their list. I went hungry."
Pros: "The food was really good. The selection of TV shows and movies were nice, and kept me entertained the whole flight."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. The same questions were asked 3 times, I couldn't tell if that was security protocol or just glitch in their process. Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "As usual, the food and entertainment were very good. Boarding was easy as we just lined up and entered the plane w/o any concern for group #'s, etc..."
Cons: "I was stuck in an aisle seat in the back of the plane where there was literally no leg room - there was a metal box (video equipment?) in the very narrow space underneath the seat in front of me. Luckily there was no one sitting in the middle seat so I could put my legs there. Also, when flying to Europe from the west coast I prefer flying to the east coast first and then taking a red eye."
Cons: "seat size and comfort. Had metal nox take good part of my footroom. small aisle. Food lousy."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Boarding is efficient. Plenty of snacks. Seats had good amount of legroom and I was not squirming the entire time in my seat to be comfortable like on some other airlines."
Cons: "In flight video system did not play in both seats for myself and spouse, so we had to move seats to find working movies. Entertainment controls need to be cleaned more often."

Cons: "no red wine - what is written in the menu in business class was missing the main course meal"
Cons: "Great service, friendly team and most importantly great food"

Pros: "Good food, comfort seat"
Cons: "Crew skipped my row when giving food and didn't realize until I came and asked. None of the crew showed their apology"

Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The seats and leg space very good. Flight clean ."
Cons: "Food served was poor in quality. Bread seemed to be stale and hard. Seems from the previous flight. Crew had poor service. Some food has fallen on the floor and she kept pushing to serve the same food and was reluctant to discard that tray."

Cons: "Inability to get a full can of soda and beverages with ice, Wild kids who ran amuck in the cabins, insonsistent ventilation it was hot one minte freezing the next."
Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again!"
Pros: "Nobody wants to sit on a plane for 10-14 hours but Turkish airlines made it enjoyable! Excellent customer service. We had plenty of beverages, sleeping kits, a wide range of entertainment on the screens, and they had my vegetarian meals ready. Always friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Ozan was a perfect attendant. Always asked us how we were and helped us when we needed anything."
Pros: "Crew needs to be more attentive and polite. One of the crew member passed me with out asking what to drink I waited until she comes back to tell her I didn't get a drink you just passed me she said ok what do you want . It took me by surprise her rudeness was un expected there was no apologies at all. This iwas my first time to fly with Turkish Airline. It is sad that just one member can influence the overall perception of the flight experience !!!!!"
Cons: "I hope this young lady get the proper training to be polite for your upcoming flights!!!!"
Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."

Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Plenty of legroom Friendly staff Excellent food Seat was comfortable with plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Even though Turkish has a clearly outlined boarding process on their boarding passes, boarding announcements were so unclear that boarding was just mass chaos"
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."
Pros: "Food is ok."
Cons: "The wait for checking hand carry luggage and purse was tooo long. You need more high tech machines to use for checking . Just like United States. So irritating to see how Turkish people checked your bags. There shld be a better way of doing things, like checking hand carry bags , laptops ,, iPods. I was surprises even cameras were withheld and you need to get it in San Francisco"
Pros: "The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage. They couldnt track it l yet....maybe you can help or forward this message to the appropriate authority. It is extremely important to me :/ Thanks, I still like kayak :) -addam rhodes"

Pros: "Clean and computable plane, very good meals and quick handling for departure"
Cons: "Nothing !"
Pros: "Friendly workers"
Cons: "I upgraded and paid for first class round trip but only got it for my flight to italy and not the flight back to miami. Economy is too cramped for such long flights and they are not as attentive as in first class"
Cons: "the entrainment system did not work"
Pros: "The included meal/drinks is always a bonus on these shorter flights and makes a difference."
Cons: "I had a pillow of my own and so it didn't matter too much, but I noticed the lack of a pillow on this early morning flight."
Pros: "The meal was good and fulfilling The cabin crew dressed like a chef is a nice and fun thing."
Cons: "Slow boarding to the plane, passengers don't respect the different boarding class rule and the staff was not enforcing it. Passengers were standing in the plane after it landed but while it was still driving on the runway and they were opening the overhead luggage compartments risking other passengers health with falling luggage. Also since passengers were standing and the plane was driving on the runway, they were not stable and moving sideways and one of them hit a sitting passenger in the head by mistake. The on-flight entertainment system didn't work from FRA to IST The staff did not do a safety check (check if seat belts on all passengers, seats are in upright position) prior to the plane flying Overall I flew with them 4 times (2 way ticket, with connection flights) and all flights were late to depart and eventually arrive late."

Pros: "Crew is very flexible and accomodating to individual needs Food is good compared to other airlines Entertainment is programme is good"
Cons: "Toilettes were a bit messy, already after 2 hours. The screen of the entertainment programme is too busy to find things"
Pros: "Ability to choose my seat when I checked in online, ability to get a free hotel stay for my overnight layover"
Cons: "Food was so-so; the specific flight attendant's service could have been better; the multiple security checkpoints; checking passports before the gate was completely unorganized; the flight was slightly delayed (reason unknown) - didn't help that we had to be bussed to another gate to reach our actual airplane"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Food and drink was OK"
Cons: "No AC while passengers on board waiting for take off. It lasted about half an hour. people were forced to use airline magazines as fans. No TV news or sport to watch Toilet was not clean. My seat can recline easily without pushing the recline bottom. This was a connection flight. Passengers had to go through 4 check points. Too much redundant. At the last check point, 4 gates shared the same check point. We saw a line but no sign for it. So we went to the front to find out what the line was for and went back to join the line for security check. There were people who did the same thing but tried to cut in the line right at the check point, creating chaos."
Pros: "Seats were roomy. Plenty of movies."
Cons: "Long gap between meals, they didn't walk thru and offer enough water or sandwiches. No sandwiches even once? Sometimes cabin was warm."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, boarding was good"

Cons: "The food on the plain or snacks were to poor and not that tasty."
Pros: "WARDA at the Miami Gate H07 was awesome. She went above and beyond. Everyone else was very helpful but you can get tell she does more than the norm. LOVE LOVE LOVE the free entertainment in the individual seats. Perfect for families!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The poor cabin stewardess was working the whole time as it was a short flight."
Cons: "This is a horrible route, they charge you more than flying to Europe and give you a one hour ride in a cramped plane where you can't even bring in a carry-on. The cost is insane but is one of the reasons Wall Street loves Delta as they are racking in the profits for very little service."
Cons: "If you can get it he people at the desk to stop making announcements while there are announcements being made over the airport PA system that would be great. Especially when the person chosen to speak has a heavy accent and it’s competing with other announcements. My over 50 ears can’t make it out."
Pros: "We got earlier than expected to our destination"
Cons: "Perhaps educate passengers on the new Delta process of boarding. Too many passengers where disorganized; the crew tried very cars to direct people"
Pros: "Comfort and service was great."
Cons: "The severe delays was frustrating and not getting enough information about it."

Pros: "Service was exceptional, flights were on time and in some case, early, and communication throughout was clear!"
Cons: "Everything was on time, but we had to sit on tje runway for more that 30 mins which made us late all around. But aside from that everything feom Delta from dropping of bags to Landing in Miami was perfect."

Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Very poor assistance for special needs customers. Excessive waits for wheelchairs. Ignored in London waiting to be escorted to gate."

Cons: "Sandwiched between 2 big guys 1 of which should be made to buy 2 seats!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Smiley flight attendants"
Cons: "the passenger next to me was sick and shortly after takeoff projectile vomited in the seat. The flight attendant did not seem to think that it was a big deal and took his time attending to the sick passenger and relocating me."
Pros: "So apparently I was told I was 1 min too late and the computer would not let them print a backache check. Further they were tellin me I couldn't get in my flight and have my luggage go later, but I understand because of security reasons. Finally it was 10 min til my flight left, I asked how about if I walk my bags through security check point; have TSA examine them and then they get placed in the plane like oversized carry ons normally do? Ding I struck a light bulb and they said yea why not. After a few phone calls later I was walking with my bags through TSA. It took me to think this up for Delta. A minute too late was the original response from the first agent. 1 minute! Not 10 not 5 she said the computer just got locked out. I was going to miss my flight for 1 min time restraint. The first agent didn't care and just blew me away. Thankfully the next agent tried. I had to throw away all my toiletries because TSA wouldn't let them through."
Cons: "The fact that I had to throw away all my toiletries and do the thinking for the agent. Although out of two he was the most understanding and the most helpful."
Pros: "Great staff and smooth on time flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "On time and the staff were very good. The food was not great, buy good."
Cons: "Tried and was unable to choose my seat in advance for flight and thus had to wait until I arrived at the gate. Thus I was unable to sit with my daughter. Was promised seats could be chosen 24 hours in advance, but was not allowed to either on line or via phone."
Cons: "Unfriendly, sarcastic flight attendant. No free gin & tonics on United/Lufthansa apparently, unlike other international airlines. Had to pay extra to get what ought to be a standard amount of legroom."
Pros: "fast boarding"
Pros: "There was nothing to like."
Cons: "The time to catch the next flight at Washington DC and Frankfert was too short. Walked about a mile and half between two gates. Request to change the time slot"

Cons: "The staff (especially ticketing) was rude. And hung up on me when I asked for their name because they knew they were wrong."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The cabin crew was helpful and very friendly and the food was the best we have recently had on an international flight. The entertainment selection was enormous and spanned the realm of all venues."
Pros: "Service personnel for the most part were friendly on the plane. I was happy that my luggage came with me, i've had several times in the past when it hasn't."
Cons: "Some of the German women and men at the counter could be LESS serious and more polite in customer service. Delayed flight was a long time to wait."
Cons: "I missed somehow the distribution of headsets, and I never got one (after asking for one). (Un-)fortunaltely there was no movie I really wanted to watch, or classical music for my taste (recitals, chamber music). Anyway, this is not a major problem, just a tiny glitch. The random boarding went surprisingly well, although I'd prefer the more structured version. Until there is bread, butter and cheese, I am fine with the bland food."
Pros: "The snack/ breakfast was not very good"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Awesome. Very comfortable even in economy seats. Great entertainment"
Pros: "The Staff"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Another passenger came and sat in the seat that was empty next to me and wasn’t ever asked to return to her own, assigned seat"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."
Cons: "great and easy"
Cons: "I selected my seats online before the flight. It seems my seat assignments were changed (many other customers complained of the same issue). I have siliver status on United and was told that there was no way to be considered for upgrade to different seat. I was told that the list was already full of higher priority customers. Yet at the same time the same employee announced those seats were available for purchase at $200 Euro for others. It seemed in both cases Lufthansa shuffled around passengers out of their selected seats for unknow reasons and also werent honoring frequent flier status programs for changing seats. Furthermore, the in seat entertainment did not work and it took quite a bit of effort including trying to move seats to get the flight attendants to reset the system (they said it would affect other customers who didnt have problems with their entertainment system). 8+hour flight is long flight to not have the system working. eventually the fixed it a couple of hours into the flight."
Pros: "Lufthansa kept to the time schedule"
Cons: "At Frankfurt, the boarding gate was changed two times."
Pros: "The people, the service, the seats, the timeliness... (I did not fly from Washington to Munich on Lufthansa; I flew back on Lufthansa.)"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "27 hours of delay. Nobody cared about our booking. Almost no service counters open. Worst airline service ever"
Pros: "Great food options, blanket and pillow, and free movies was the best"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The flight attendant was helpful in confirming that my connection gate was C14."
Cons: "I only had 45 minutes between my Washington DC flight and my flight to Frankfurt and the flight to DC was delayed by a few minutes. Because the carry-on baggage had to be checked it took extra time to get my bag after the plane landed and my connecting gate was in terminal C (I arrived at terminal A), so I barely had enough time to get there, even when walking at full speed and not stopping once along the way. This was too short of a time between the two flights."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a superior airline with friendly, helpful staff. It is always enjoyable to fly with them!"
Cons: "Entertainment seems like you have to pay for even basics. If you need to charge for movies domestically, fine, but even basic news or so timed out. Seats are tight (legroom). I am 6'2" and knees were against seat in front of me."
Pros: "Great flights. No problems. Used a different company to schedule my return flight and having trouble with them. Wish I'd stuck with Kayak!"
Pros: "The flight was quick, getting on was no problem. The crew were friendly, I was comfortable in the seats on the short trip, but I think more than two hours would have been trouble (I'm tall). The food sufficed for a quick trip. I only say Good because the food was good, not outstanding. Entertainment was pretty much magazines."
Cons: "Everything was really just as I expected it to be, nothing too flashy or exciting."
Pros: "The food, comfort and very good costumer services"
Cons: "Movies very short selection"
Pros: "As always with Lufthansa everything went really smooth and timely. I also got my vegan meal which was quite good and the seats seem wider and with more legroom than on other airlines. The crew was very pleasant and attentive."
Pros: "Good timing, organized, nice attendants. excellent crew"
Cons: "Seats were little tight but overall excellent flight and friendly crew."
Pros: "Being a short person, the seats are very comfortable . My feet could touch and rest on the floor. It appears funny but it makes a big difference to a 4 feet and 11 inches person travelling long distances. Overall my experience with LH is excellent."
Cons: "The noodle chicken had too much tomato sauce; otherwise, everything was very good."
Pros: "Crew was great. I was traveling with 2 young kids and it was great experience."
Cons: "I don't like that nobody contacted me yet about my demaged luggage."
Cons: "A worker at the check-in stand in Schiphol airport was very rude. We didn't get Lufthansa even tho I booked through them. And instead we got America airlines."
Cons: "overlay duration is too bad ....its takes 30hrs instead of 19hrs journey"
Cons: "I booked Lufthansa. I should have been on a Lufthansa flight not a United flight which is a inferior airline."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled for 5pm, our connection was late but we mangers to run to our gate @ 4:45pm And it was to late- dors closed So I waved good bat to our plane - it was right there So instead of 1 hour layover it's 16 hours"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and effective. The vegetarian food was excellent. Plane was clean. Bathrooms were checked regularly."
Cons: "Generally, I'm a happy camper and easy to understand some "discomfort" that comes with traveling. Return trip operated by United. Terrible experience. No legroom[I'm 6'-2"]. The seat confinement was so stressing that it was impossible for me but just to extract myself and find a place where i just could stand. Meaning I was standing most of the trip. My wife and myself are globetrotters and this was one of the worse flight experience ever."
Pros: "I would not have selected Lufthansa for this round trip, had I know UNITED is involved period. Can not folks integrate your systems so that boarding passed for united can be printed before the start?? It is the internet age folks, wake up before Emirates eats your lunch!!!"
Cons: "thanks for the survey, but do something and avoid united with UNITED!!!"
Pros: "We were seating toward the rear of the plane and they run of the food options for dinner. So we were stuck only with whatever was left."
Pros: "empty seat by me"
Cons: "paying $17 for wifi, food sucked this time"
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to premium economy! :-)"
Cons: "for a 9 hour flight there was not enough food served - 1 lunch and 2 snacks left us hungry///"
Pros: "-The large selection of movies helped pass the time during my 8+ hour flight."
Cons: "-None of the power outlets ever seem to work on airplanes (including this one)."
Pros: "The additional leg room"
Cons: "it was cancelled."
Cons: "never traveld do to health problems im trying to get a refund or voucher for different date"
Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful and helpful."
Pros: "Clean and nice. Seats were more spacious than most. Food was rather good and plentiful. Very very nice."
Pros: "Service was great and the airplane was very well maintained."
Cons: "More water, I was thirsty most of the time."
Pros: "TAP HAS THE MOST COMFORTABLE SEATS THAT RECINE VERY VERY FAR."
Cons: "CREW NEVER CAME AROUND AND OFFERED WATER, LIKE OTHER AIRLINES DO. THIS IS ESSENTIAL FOR GOOD HEALTH DURING A LONG FLIGHT OF 7.5 HOURS, AND SITTING ON THE PLANE FOR A TOTAL OF 8.5 HOURS....."
Pros: "The crew was super nice. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "My gluten free meal had a carrot cake... the first ingredient was Wheat! If you have any type of allergy do not trust their food!"
Cons: "It was a very old plane with two movie options that were just running from the start of the flight on a scratchy screen."
Cons: "The fact that people in coach class up to rows 28 as 2 choices of food and from row 29 and up have no choice we have to eat what they have twice to me"
Pros: "Great lie flat seat. Nice FAs."
Cons: "Food was not that great for intl C"
Cons: "flight was delayed. ended up missing our flight from newark home."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Food and snacks were good. Very attentive crew."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "I like the flight per se and the crew attention"
Cons: "The boarding process. It was slow, disorganized, didn't take off on time and some people were rude including the searching process that I enter voluntarily because nobody directed me. I when you schedule a flight you should try to take off on time because it can be disruptive for everyone. And when you sell discount tickets at least say you are going to charge 45 dollars for the bag... i wouldn't purchase any discount offer"
Pros: "Employees are very nice."
Pros: "since it was an older plane maybe it had more leg room"
Cons: "poor quality video and sound for watching movies on long flight attendants were brusque and ignored most passengers(except the ones with special meals) we were on connecting flight with little time in between to grab water or snack - so we sat on this flight for over two hours before we got any refreshments. Some passengers got refills before we got one. Poor execution. we had to check two bags on connecting flight (which we didn't have to do before) and it cost us time and money. Also they lost the two bags - got several days after we got back from trip huge line at immigration - we waited almost two hours will not travel on TAP again"
Pros: "Good movie selection. Kind staff."
Cons: "Attendants did not check on us for about four hours, and it was not a red-eye. So, a snack or drink would have been noce."
Pros: "Flight attendants were reponsive. Plane was comfortable enough. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Plane was a little warm. Would have liked more information in English."
Cons: "Wouldn't let people approach the desk to ask questions before boarding. Crew very un pleasant and forceful throughout the trip. Would not look forward to flying with TAP again."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Long flight uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Time in the air was fine, efficient once we arrived in Newark and bags arrived fairly quickly. Check-in counter in Lisbon were a little tricky to find (around the corner with no signs posted...) but it was efficient."
Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous. Went through security and then a second security screening at the gate when everything was gone through for a lot more than random folks. Then getting on a bus to board the flight instead of a jetway? I thought TAP was Portugal's national airline and had priority space at Lisbon..apparently not. No soap in the bathrooms on the plane! Ran out of diet soda (and we weren't at the back of the plane). On the way over, the flight attendants gave us conflicting instructions about our toddle sons's ability to sleep on the floor or on our laps. The entertainment system didn't work."
Pros: "Food, seats, flight attendants & in flight entertainment were all very good."
Pros: "So accommodating!! Top of the line!"
Pros: "The food in Economy was way better than usual U.S. airline food. Ground staff in Newark were helpful in retrieving a book I left on the plane. Captain had the seat belt sign off early and turned it back on late in descent which allowed people to visit the restrooms. Video entertainment was good."
Cons: "Captain should have made more P.A. announcements during the coast in over Cape Cod to point out areas of interest"
Pros: "Attendants were great throughout. Prompt takeoff. Food was good; drink service even better! Best movie selection I've seen on commercial planes. Seat was comfy. I enjoyed the flight very much and will always consider flying with TAP."
Pros: "Center aisle seat was comfortable and pnethy of room for my carryon overhead and underseat."
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (Thisnflight the screen was messed up...not something you want to look at for 8 hours. ) I couldn't eat half the food because the salad wasn't anything but cabbage and a tomato and the corn and meat dish was cold and weird. I don't know what the dessert was but I got it down. I think the sandwich I got before landing was pesto and mayonnaise but I'm not sure. I didn't get much of it down before gagging. I wish when booking a flight you were given the menu or you could choose early in the flight and then be served. I bet it would cut down on wasted food and money."
Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and already stocked with a pillow and blanket for all. we each had a personal screen stocked with movies, music, games and flight info. at no additional cost and that was great for passing the time during a long flight from Lisbon to NY. The crew was the best part, so pleasant and helpful and professional. We were instructed to close the shades and were allowed to sleep and woken up for the custom form and the great meal which had the option of soda or wine, etc. at no additional cost. The quality of the food was impressive and the salad even came with a packet of real Portuguese olive oil and vinegar. When appropriate we all had to open the shades and drinks were served again and later a small snack of a sandwich and a juice were given all in perfect timing."
Cons: "Filthy dirty airport, club and plane. No power in the seats to boot. Clown show. Never again see above."
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."
Cons: "I found it very frustrating that we were told at the ticket counter the boarding would begin at 11:15am for a 12:45pm flight time. I arrived at the airport over two hrs in advance and then had to run a significant distance through the airport and sweat and be unnecessarily anxious waiting on the customs line only to arrive at the gate at 11:20am, to have my bags checked for a second time and then be unable to get any food or coffee before a flight that did not begin boarding for another 40 minutes. I did and still do not see the need for that additional luggage/security check and then being held at the gate for almost an extra hour for seemingly no reason at all."
Pros: "Flight staff was great, service was top notch. food was surprisingly good, red wine included in your ticket. movie choice was good. coach seat was as manageable for a long flight. you pretty much know what your getting yourself into flying coach overseas. this was a pretty good seat."
Cons: "We flew thru about an hour straight of moderate turbulence but i'm guessing that was unavoidable. Checkin was a bit weird, they had a gate change and never announced it. Fortunately, i checked the board. about 6 of us had been at the other gate for a long while."
Cons: "We experienced a 6 hour delay in Lisbon because there was no fuel available - terrible planning causing us to spend hours on the runway."
Pros: "Great flight! Unexpectedly good amount of food and good entertainment. On time. Seats were comfortable w good room."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty disorganized and crowded and seemed like it took even longer than it normally takes. we were lined up for a while before boarding initiated."
Pros: "lots of food and drink"
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Service was poor, the seat was not comfortable."
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad, the flight attendant was unfriendly, which is unlike any Portuguese we have met in our trip, maybe she was just having a bad day."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "No air from above. Just an all around bad flight with so many problems."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Very friendly crew. Coach seating comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "It wasn't at all the airline's fault, but this flight saw random searches at the gate of carry-on luggage + patdowns of selected passengers. I understand fully the imperatives for security, However it would be nice if there were some way to signal passengers that they might want to get to the gate early...... Fortunately I'd experienced it before (same flight out of Lisbon) and knew there was a good chance of a repeat...."
Pros: "Generally good and professional."
Cons: "One washroom was permanent;y dirty because the FLUSH mechanism wasn't performing well. Another washroom was permanently locked - causing higher traffic in the remaining washrooms."
Cons: "this was a very last minute flight to return home. It was cancelled within hours. I am very disappointed."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Out of the 100+ flights I've been on in my life. TAP Portugal has been the worst and least professional."
Cons: "My first flight from Madrid to Portugal was cancelled (at midnight) so I had to sleep in the terminal because the bus they provided to the hotel couldn't take all of us. Then my flight to New Jersey was delayed several hours making me miss my next flight to Denver (home) and I had to spend a 2nd night in the terminal. I never received and hotel/food/taxi vouchers. I will do everything to avoid flying with TAP Portugal ever again."
Pros: "Nice flight, clean planes, decent amount of beverages/food provided, good TVs"
Pros: "USB ports to charge your phone, watched almost a whole season of HIMYM:) good dinner."
Cons: "Once we entered the boarding area we weren't allowed back out to get a sandwich, souvenir, etc. This was absolutely unacceptable. I felt like a prisoner in that area. I can't believe they thought this was OK."
Pros: "Excellent portuguese food served on board, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My entertainment console did not work for the entire 8 hour flight, and to make matters worse the screen kept flashing a bright white light every 30 seconds or so, preventing me from sleeping. I had to tell 3-4 crew members for them to at least broadcast a movie to my seat to make the flashing stop. I was also seated right next to the bathroom, which usually isn't so bad, but since most of the passengers were elderly, it was being used literally nonstop for the majority of the flight. The crew only briefly cleaned it once... I was seated next to a screaming toddler as well. This isn't really the airline's fault, but it certainly didn't help. I felt like I did not get my money's worth for this flight and that it was a poor experience."
Pros: "Good in every way"
Pros: "Very comfortable."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Service, staff, food, airplanes."
Pros: "I was lucky enough to be upgraded and I enjoyed everything!"
Cons: "My media center, screen, music etc abruptly shut off and remained off the the entire trip. On my previous flight all sound was lost on the on board media center."
Pros: "They were hospitable, cordial and always with a smile. The fact they provided a full meal on board was surprising to me, after flying with several carriers I didn't expect it. Keep up the great work!"
Pros: "seats, courtesy of the staff"
