Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More space! The crew could have been nicer"
Cons: "There was only one agent checking in business class passengers until a bunch of us complained. The Swiss business lounge is too small with not enough seats"
Cons: "entertainment sound"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and overall I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Food / movies"
Cons: "Comfort/ staff"
Pros: "Responsive excellent crew."
Cons: "Long waits to get to the bathroom. Plane dated."
Pros: "The food and service."
Pros: "Professional courteous staff"
Cons: "Tray table slid downward whenever it was opened. Headphones quit after the first hour and got scratchy. So little room..tiny video screen. I could not get advance seating because of a code share flight."
Pros: "Crew great service"
Cons: "Boarding was slow —delayed takeoff for nearly an hour"
Cons: "I would have liked a better selection of movies and TV series and games"
Pros: "We did not get on any flight to NY!!!!"
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Good on board service"
Cons: "Again delayed"
Pros: "On Board Service"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Check in at Nuremberg terrible"
Pros: "Friendly service and food"
Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."
Pros: "It was okay. No complaints. I appreciated that I was given a seat near the front to run and make my next flight."
Cons: "my ticket was changed and messed up and could be due to language and understanding, I ran a lot to get to my flight and had to go back and forth between the check in line and ground force and wait out of line until a resolution was found."
Pros: "I was fed food and drinks varios times during the flight and that makes me happy! I never went hungry!"
Pros: "Flight crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "When checking in, I was upgraded to business without knowing it until I looked at my boarding passes. This was a good surprise of course."
Pros: "Swiss is already a great company and yesterday it just got better : I got upgraded on business class between Geneva and New York and it was a very nice treat, the service was perfect, the food excellent, the seat was very comfortable. Thank you SWISS !"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, also the service given since it was a long flight."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable. The headrest was great and the seat pitch and recline were decent. I was able to sleep better with Swiss than with other airlines like Lufthansa or Delta. They are much better overall for sure. The food and staff were excellent! The food quality is very good compared to the other airlines. The cabin crew are always passing around water and chocolates throughout the flight. They were friendly and helpful as well. The pilots were also very good. We had no rough turbulence and their landing skills were amazing."
Cons: "The boarding procedures could be improved. They don't have zones and everybody just line up. Families with small children are not accomodated first."
Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."
Pros: "Short flight.."
Cons: "They gave me and the 2 other black people who were flying, the seats all the way in the back. I'm never telling the people at check in "just give me any seat" ever again! It was so obvious I almost complained to all the attendants! I just tried to keep my cool... HORRIBLE FIRST EXPERIENCE TO EUROPE!"
Cons: "entertainment machine in my seat did not worked"
Pros: "It was an uneventful trip, which is what you want in a trip by air. Boarding was easy, seats are pretty comfortable, staff friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Service was poor - several of the staff seemed to be inexperienced and not very customer service oriented. The boarding process was chaotic at the gate - customs were there to check in but quite a few people were unaware (not many announcements). Also, the Economy boarding process wasn't clear and chaotic (i.e., not by row and you also didn't know when you could board. Also, the person in front of me kept reclining her seat and it went back too far. I didn't want to do the same to the person behind me so it was quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight from Barcelona was delayed for 2 hours, so we missed the flight from Zurich to New York."
Pros: "Liked the crew, seats, snack. Definitely a pleasant experience."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."
Pros: "All on-board crew members were pleasant and helpful. The variety of movies and tv shows was sufficient to keep me occupied for the 9+ hour flight."
Cons: "For a 5' 4" person like myself, arm and leg room were barely minimal, Economy seats were crammed together and were not ergonomically designed for comfort or support. I was fortunate to be able to move from my center seat to an aisle seat once the flight was in progress. As soon as I did, the air around me was cooler and made for more comfortable breathing. In the center seat, the air was still and close—very uncomfortable. Poor communication regarding passport control protocol at the departure gate: A temporary station was set up, labeled Passport Control, but no SWISS agent announced what was happening. I had just gone through a passport control line on a lower level so I didn't think I had to go through a similar process at the gate. Most people around me also didn't know whether they had to go through the process at the gate. Once agents had been questioned on the subject several times, they should have made a general announcement to inform everyone at the gate. They did not. The food on the plane was the usual poor quality fare for economy class—either highly processed or overcooked and much too salty. Ugh."
Pros: "Comfort of the flight ,very friendly staff"
Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION I IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, SPECIALLY FOR A TALL PERSON ON A LONG FLIGHT.......ADDING TO THE FACT THAT THE PERSON IN FRONT OF YOU MIGHT DECIDE TO BE SOOO COMFORTABLE,HE'D PULL HIS SEAT ALL THE WAY BACK WITHOUT ANY CONSIDERATION!!!..THAT PUTS THE SCREEN ONLY INCHES AWAY FROM YOUR FACE!!..BESIDES, THE CHECK-IN MACHINES AT THE ZURICH TERMINAL ARE A HARD TO UNDERSTAND..TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CHECK-IN WITHOUT SUCESS!!"
Pros: "Nothing distinguishes itself for better or worse than usual in coach."
Pros: "The children had easy entertainment at their hands. The planes were clean and comfortable. The food had a Swiss touch and the chocolates are always welcome in my family."
Pros: "The service , the hospitality and kindness"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment."
Pros: "service personnel were excellent. Espresso is great."
Cons: "Business class main meal was disappointing."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane was small. It was a quick flight though."
Pros: "Nothing, could not even board due to confusion over flights."
Cons: "SAS couldn’t even help us when our flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Fairly easy boarding process and nice staff"
Cons: "Delayed about an hour once all boarded"
Cons: "Seats and spaces seemed a tad smaller and less comfortable than other airlines"
Pros: "Great food, typically on time and very prompt. entertainment was good. It was an older plane so the actual screens and monitors or outdated."
Cons: "There were several babies crying for at least 2/3 hours and of course it is not the fault of the crew or airline. But that definitely left a lot of people dissatisfied with an overnight flight in which we are hoping to rest before arriving in Copenhagen. Seats are getting smaller and smaller. Spaces are very tight but that seems to be the norm with all airlines"
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."
Pros: "Plenty of seating room on this flight."
Cons: "Little carry on baggage room. At least 50% of everyone's carry-on baggage could not fit on the aircraft."
Pros: "The airplane clean ,Food good etc."
Pros: "Efficient and on-time service."
Cons: "Tiny seats that are inappropriate for international travel."
Pros: "Efficient, on-time service; plenty of overhead storage room."
Cons: "Small cramped seats were inappropriate for an international flight."
Pros: "Food was okay. Very smooth landing"
Cons: "Crew. One of the flight attendants was unfriendly and short when asked about food options. None of them were approachable."
Cons: "40 minute delay No food on a three-hour flight, first European airline to implement the same policy that US airlines have used for domestic US flights"
Cons: "Noen hadde spydd på bordet på sete 1A, flyttet til 2A"
Pros: "I liked that it was available for me to return to Amsterdam in such late notice. Got there quickly and even earlier (10 mins) then expected."
Cons: "No on offered me anything to drink or a snack the entire flight or even a hand towel but others in front and behind me were receiving them. I didnt even feel acknowledged during the flight. Even though the tine was good, the price was way too high but since I was desperate I paid it."
Pros: "With tablets for the entertainment system – – a ton of good movies to choose from. So much so that we stayed up hours after we planned to, watching movies"
Cons: "Seats were a little crowded together, but that’s to be expected in modern passenger flight"
Pros: "Prompt boarding, early departure and early arrival."
Cons: "The take it or leave it attitude of the cabin crew (amazingly casual) and SAS’s persistence in having two standards of service in the one cabin - free food & drink up front, however only tea & coffee or a cup of water up the back and you can pay for the rest!"
Pros: "Efficient crew, food served at proper temperatures Good movie selections"
Cons: "My seat could/would not recline, passenger in front of me had his seat in recline for most of flight. it was a long uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professsional. Breakfast was good , as well as the selection of movies."
Cons: "Apparently SAS is not part of the TSA network, so I was unable to use my Global Entry membership to get TSA Pre-Check. Non-alcoholic beverage service was meager (one beverage only)."
Cons: "I would like more checked baggage allowance."
Cons: "Luggage lost or misdirected and VERY poor effort in getting it delivered to me, once found. I still have no clothes, shaver, toiletries . . . or confirmation on when/if delivery will happen. Just simply disrespectful!!!"
Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."
Pros: "price, water, easy boarding, in time"
Cons: "noise, no snacks"
Pros: "I'm surprised this is called a budget airline (or am I mistaken?!). Anyway, everything was great. The entertainment options were limited compared to Turkish, Emirates, Lufthansa or Qatar, but enough for a 7 hour flight and then some. Also, I liked that there was a bottle of water on each seat for people to hydrate. Very important, and I haven't seen any other airline do it."
Cons: "Nothing stands out really. I'm likely going to fly them again."
Pros: "Nice planes with all the basics you need"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Cons: "They should really let you know ahead of time that certain seats (like the ones in front of the emergency exit--not at the emergency exit) dont recline. The passenger in front of me reclined her chair all the way back and seeing as I couldnt recline my seat I had very little space and found the three hour flight extremely unpleasant."
Cons: "On time, efficient, friendly staff"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and attentive crew!"
Cons: "Old movies not up to date."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour & half"
Pros: "Waited for us when flight showed up late"
Cons: "Cramped cabin"
Pros: "Timely or even earlier arrival. Generally, very good experience"
Cons: "70euro baggage fee at counter check in while flying on SAS. The same fee is 13 Euro if is bag selected at the time of ticket booking. kayak never gave me the option."
Cons: "My first flight was canceled. I'm still in Barcelona."
Cons: "In toilets there was no paper"
Pros: "People were nice"
Cons: "They charged me 60 pounds to check my bag after I checked my bag in online. When I got to the airport, they told me I had a bag on my connecting flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki but not on my flight to Copenhagen from LHR. At the airport I was charged 60 pounds for a small bag. Crazy! Completely unreasonable. Never flying SAS again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "So far best flight I've ever experienced ! I was traveling to Europe and both ways I was pleasantly surprised, planes were on time , super nice crew and great food , Way to go SAS !!!"
Pros: "The overall experience was good. The fights in there selves were cool."
Cons: "When I got to Oslo to connect to my other flight I had to do security again and the boarding was already starting. So I had to run like hell and got there on the nik of time."
Cons: "I didn't not like the fact that I had to wait too long about 9hrs in Copenhagen. The intial transit time was about 3hrs but the flight schedule was changed resulting to about 9hrs wait at the airport. Thanks to the Service representative I was given 100 Denmark money for food. I was very tired and the 9hrs wait didn't help. Overall, the Service was good. Maybe this was a one off but I wish I knew. I was going to get some rest in a holtel."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Very hot, small seats"
Pros: "The seats were comfy"
Cons: "They don't even offer water as a free beverage, only coffee or tea. And, not even a packet of pretzels on a three-hour flight. I didn't miss the entertainment much, but on a three-hour flight, it's a nice option."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the flight left and landed on time. The crew members were very pleasant. The comfort of the aircraft is mediocre, but that is all across the industry."
Cons: "This flight was ~3.5 hours and there was no 'free' food; it was all for purchase. SAS can learn from their competitors and realize that flights over 2 hours are different than short haul ones."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to car troubles and has been very difficult in trying to get a refund for my flight. SAS was very unhelpful at the airport I had to go to Delta and purchase and entirely new flight!"
Pros: "Lots of movie to chose from. Chicken Curry was tasty."
Cons: "The person in front of me put the seat back so far that I had almost no room to get up—then glared at me when I had to pull on the seat back to get out."
Cons: "Crew service is very poor"
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Not even water or coffee was free. Charge for everything."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean, the crew was kind."
Cons: "There were no food options, only preset meals. Not fantastic for a vegetarian. Also, for two and a half hours we were delayed (while sitting on the plane after pushing back and then returning to the gate) due to something wrong with the plane. Along with being unnerving, it caused nearly everyone on the flight to miss their comnecting flight."
Pros: "On time bags made 2 connections"
Cons: "Delayed. Disorganized boarding."
Cons: "The food. We waited too long to take off and there was no announcement why we were sitting on waiting..."
Pros: "Lunch was tasty. Crew was pleasant. Boarding was easy. Entertainment offered was excellent with a large range of things to watch/listen to. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Blankets were not offered to passengers, I was disappointed by this."
Pros: "Crew awesome"
Cons: "No all was great"
Pros: "Don’t know, missed the flight."
Cons: "No one around to help."
Cons: "They dropped me from the flight. I am in a hotel in Dublin, and will go direct from Dublin to SFO this morning, the next day."
Pros: "US Customs and Immigration pre-clearance in Dublin allowed me to avoid filling out a landing card and dealing with long immigration lines at JFK. Very good selection of films and TV shows via on board entertainment system. Food decent."
Cons: "Selection of amenities at Dublin Airport in the US pre-clearance area is poor."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was very good. Flight attendants helpful. Seats hard but we had ample leg room on this flight. I would like to commend the pilot for landing us safely in some extremely windy conditions. Everyone on the plane was audiably nervous and he did well"
Cons: "Checking in was not pleasant they seated me in row 20 something and my wife in row 40 something even though the plane was half empty. Distressing at first. When I asked why they told me to sort my seating out in the plane. Now that's telling. Whoever checked me in could see there were lots off empty seats and couldn't take the time to seat my wife and I together. Hmmm. Terminal at Dublin was small and over crowded. There was 1 agent at the gate checking in everyone on this flight for about 10 minutes until she finally got some help. You must do better"
Pros: "Loved the plane and crew. Comfortable economy seats"
Cons: "Transition off plane in Dublin felt like cattle. No clarity on direction for first time people going to US about pre-clearnance process. If gate would have been posted sooner, I would have gone to pre-clearance sooner. I thought you go only after gate is posted and they call flight. Could have been a mess missing flight over this, but I was OK"
Pros: "Air Lingus is my new preferred carrier, thanks to you! They combine newest technology with traditional service values."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect flights. I went back to the crew and told them so. Compared to my BA flights eastbound, Air Lingus was heaven. I will always book them first from now on, and I just happened on to them through your site."
Pros: "The flights themselves were nice. Food was fine. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "Getting to our connection was awful. Prescreening getting into the US was terrible. Got selected for special screening and the officers said the gate knew we were held up there. Only had one hour to reach connection. Lost an immense amount of time getting swabbed and patted down. The gate was closed when we arrived. Had to run to the gate. By accident we found out the gate was closed from someone who happened to hear word that we were looking for the gate to JFK. Almost didn’t get on the flight. If we didn’t run who knows if we would have made it. If you are only giving people an hour to get to their connection, then don’t let them get held up for 40 minutes. It’s idiotic."
Pros: "The food was good and the stewards were friendly."
Cons: "The seats wwre to small."
Pros: "The mechanical issue with flaps was fixed - glad to arrive home safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours due to a mechanical poblem . We were offered one free drink."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was comical. This was the one place in the airport where there is no attempt to establish a queue area. I don't get it. Plane audio for pilot and crew announcements was poor. Nobody could hear what was being announced. Entertainment audio was very poor - which on a long flight can make a big difference. Even tried my own earbuds and it did not help."
Cons: "I don't understand why they have to charge for water, coffee or tea. These are basic beverages."
Pros: "Service, friendliness. The cabin crew seemed like truly genuine, nice people."
Cons: "The food was pretty poor (I had the chicken) and the seats weren't roomy enough. The service video at the beginning was very utilitarian. (3 on a scale of 1-10, where Air New Zealand is a 10.)"
Pros: "I was very satisfied with both of the meals that were served in my flight from Dublin to Hartford,CT"
Pros: "The plane was night. The flight was exceptionally smooth. The crew was very pleasant."
Pros: "We arrived minutes earlier."
Cons: "During take off the toilet paper and towels in the bathroom next to me had fallen all over the floor and needed to be cleaned by a flight attendant. But instead they just locked the door which is obviously one of the few bathrooms offered for over 100+ people on an international flight!"
Pros: "Boarding Gate crew were good."
Cons: "Seat cushions are worn out. Need new foam. Hostesses spent more time talking to each other during food and beverage service than to the passenger."
Pros: "Always a pleasure to fly with Aer Lingus!"
Cons: "It was the first of the month, so the movies were the old ones and didn't match the ones listed in the in flight magazine. That was the only mild disappointment. Everything else was great!"
Pros: "comfortable flight."
Cons: "no vegetarian options for meal, unless arranged ahead of time...which was not an option."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and welcoming. They directed us to the aisle for our seats. The staff at the airport were also very courteous and no question was too small to answer."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the person sitting behind me kept using his knees to make my ride uncomfortable because I reclined my seat too much. Instead of talking, he was rude in action. The stewardess did tell him that I had a right to recline when he motioned to her. I think the seats shouldn't be allowed to recline so much even though it is more comfortable for a long ride. The screen is very close to one's face when the passenger in front reclines all the way. The airport didn't have any compatible charging ports for iphones from the USA. But the plane had them. That's good. It would be good if mobile check-in boarding passes were acceptable."
Pros: "I had not pre-ordered a vegetarian meal, and there were no extras, but one of the flight attendants gave me a fruit salad from one of the crew's meals."
Cons: "The sound quality for the announcement system and the headphones was really bad, so I could never understand what anyone was saying. The crew is very formal and sometimes curt and borderline rude. They just seem very inflexible and seem to put rules before people."
Pros: "Good seats."
Cons: "No place to charge the phone."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "The extremely rude ticket agent at the Venice airport that threw my boarding pass at me, even though I was following her explicit instructions. 50 characters isn't enough to explain what happened"
Pros: "Nothing I do not like."
Cons: "Maybe more movies for entertainment?"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment system. Lots of options."
Cons: "Be very aware of your seats proximity to the restrooms. I paid for the extra legroom seat that turned out to be where everyone waiting for the restroom stood. I felt very bad for the passenger who was seated directly across the aisle from the restroom door."
Pros: "Very helpful and exceptional in flight staff. Ground crew helped us through customs very quickly and made flight transfer very easy."
Pros: "Crew was nice, food was good enough, having movies passed the time."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and space was tighter than on other flights. It was hard to manage limited movement and cramped knees for such a long flight."
Cons: "Delays and crowded airport with little direction and no one around to help."
Cons: "very uncomfortable seat in exit row (I had to pay extra for a bad seat) mediocre food (I had to pay extra for a mediocre meal) flight crew was professional but not friendly excessive security in Dublin"
Pros: "Passport and customs at Dublin."
Cons: "The crew is remarkably uninformed on things like partner airlines for mileage and other things. Dublin is a drab airport with no charging stations. Nice to clear passport control there though. Worst flight in quite a while VERY COLD PLANE. Broken seats and chargers. I don't watch movies much but there top selections were 3-5 years old."
Pros: "Flight back to NYC was packed. Seats were tight and smaller (width-wise) than Aer Lingus flights out of NYC. Couldn't lean back for fear of being in the lap of the person behind me! Meals and beverages were good. Was surprised by that. Airline personnel were really friendly and nice. We arrived at least 1 hour and 25 minutes ahead of schedule. A+ in my books for that! And fast boarding."
Cons: "Small seats. Could remove a row or two to give more leg room; especially on overseas flights. No USB jacks in economy to charge up devices. Only available in 1st class and business (not fair when more folks in economy section). Okay movie selection. Would have preferred my own screen at seat. Remote kept popping up in arm rest."
Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"
Pros: "Professional and caring crew."
Cons: "Random additional security check AT THE GATE in Dublin was unnecessary and poorly organized, as it required my 18 y/o daughter to go all the way back to passport control; they were already closing the gate when the associate brought her back; extremely stressful and unnecessary! In my experience when random additional check is required it is done at security checkpoint, never at the gate."
Pros: "Despite being standard economy class, the seats were comfortable, the packed plan didn't feel terribly packed, and the food was surprisingly decent. Boarding was quick and easy, and there was plenty of overhead luggage space. The roughly 8 hour flight from Dublin to JFK was much more pleasant than I had expected."
Cons: "The power plug under my seat didn't work. (Thankfully, I had a charger battery with me, so I didn't run out of juice.)"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for meals."
Pros: "Economy flight cost was very reasonable yet plane was new, seat was very comfortable, entertainment was excellent, food was ok. Very nice for an economy flight even though I am accustomed to business class."
Cons: "Drinks were a little pricing and limited. Bar is only open for a very short window. Boarding process in Dublin was terrible with everyone queued up with no order of boarding."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, the seats had a decent amount of room, the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The plane was sitting at the gate for at least three hours before we boarded, and then they found a problem to fix. We took off almost an hour late. There wasn't enough barbecue chicken for everyone so they ran out halfway through the flight, so I had no choice but to eat the other option which was really unappealing. When we landed we couldn't go anywhere because it took 20 minutes to get a paramedic on board for another traveler."
Cons: "I requested an aisle or window seat and was not able to get one."
Pros: "Our return trip from Shannon to JFK was the best flying experience we have ever had. I requested an aisle seat for my 6'5" husband and we were given the emergency aisle. The flight crew was outstanding- Ashley and Hazel could not have been nicer to us. My TV set was broken in my seat but I did not care as I had a lot of reading to do. It was an outstanding return trip from a wonderful time in Ireland"
Pros: "Courteous staff and flight crew"
Cons: "Entertainment choices were limited"
Pros: "Friendly staff, food"
Cons: "my bags were missed during plenty of time transfer, uncomfortable plane for a trans Atlantic flight, expensive drinks"
Pros: "I like that the flight took off on time and got there a little early. I was so worried about delays. Going and coming back was on time."
Pros: "Impressive service & professionalism"
Pros: "They were very welcoming and made one feel safe and comfortable. I liked traveling with them but I'm not sure if I'd do it again."
Cons: "I got emails that I could check in online but it wouldn't let me. On top of that I had a 24hr layover and they wouldn't let me pass security because I didn't have a boarding pass. I couldn't get my boarding pass till the next morning. I traveled 4 times within a week using Aer Lingus, they had delays over half the time. One of my flights was delayed for more than an hour and another was delayed 20 minutes. And there boarding makes no sense. You would think they would do it by seating number but they don't. People get in a line and whoever is first goes first. It makes it very difficult to get on because it gets so crowded. Getting off is worst tho, especially when u sit up front and had to put ur luggage all the way to the back because people take a whole bunch of large luggage. You have to wait till everyone gets off and then walk all the way down there and back up. . Like a 5 year old does not need a huge luggage just for themselves. On top of that, people bring more then one carry on with them so you gotta put your bag in a different row because one person used up all the space provided."
Pros: "The crew where generally attentive smiling and pleasant."
Cons: "An"overly"rushed tone was being set in the airport,by the boarding pass stating a well past gate-closure time.The monitor reinforced this by stating "gate closed"or not listing that flight at all. By the service of hot beverage,although my fellow passenger with coffee was spilled upon,neither he nor l was offered drink. The both of us were also overlooked at the serving of the snack. The originating voyage,was also punctuated by a large spillage of food by the flight attendant on my leg,with barely an apology."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Much more but with this price you can not expect much!"
Cons: "The early morning fight was delayed, and I appreciated that TAP notified me ahead of time. However, TAP did not communicate that despite the 2 hour delay, we were required to be at the airport checkin as if the flight was never delayed - and agent dismissed us as late. Only begging got us on flight."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight due to the fact that the TAP crew leaving Barcelona said there was “fog” and therefore, nearly half of the flight had the same connecting flight to London. On top of it, they had no other flights and put us up in a hotel instead."
Pros: "crew was so very helpful. Food was surprisingly good"
Pros: "unexpectedly comfortable seat on this particular flight, unlike my previous flights to/from USA"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. Seats on the international flight could have been a bit more comfortable. Entertainment was available and satisfying. The meals were good. Crew was nice."
Pros: "Planes clean and in good condition."
Cons: "Crowded and late departure."
Pros: "Nice and easy. Very uncomplicated."
Pros: "Food was good, many options with entertainment"
Cons: "The person making announcements mumbled and spoke too softly for someone who's announcing things on a flight. We couldn't understand half of everything being said. Also both flights departed late even though TAP reported them as "on time." We sat at the gate for almost an hour before departing with announcements at that time solely in a Portuguese - on a flight going to New York."
Pros: "Easy smooth transaction"
Pros: "Seats were Comfortable"
Pros: "Entertainment and seat space were great."
Cons: "They somehow managed to lose the entire flights luggage"
Cons: "TAP Airlines stranded us in Lisbon. They were late flying us from Vienna to Lisbon and then canceled our seats on our connection to JFK. Instead, they rebooked us on the next day's flight a full 24 hours after, refusing to rebook us on earlier flights on other carriers. Their customer service was as bad as I've ever experienced. Multiple agents admitted their company is terrible and doesn't care about its customers. The indifference to our situation was surreal. Lesson learned."
Cons: "We travelled with 2 carry ones and one checked bag throughout our 2.5 week honeymoon. Check in agent suggested that we check all 3 of our bags since the flight was full. We did. The flight from BCN to LIS was delayed 2 hours at the gate, but we were told we could somehow still catch our flight from LIS to PDL. We trusted that was true. We arrived at LIS without a single garment of clothing (we checked all 3 bags through to PDL), and then realized we missed the flight to PDL. We stood in line for 3 HOURS at the TAP help desk, only to wait behind a group of very angry people who monopolized the staff. Once we told the agent our situation, he told us there were no more seats on any flight to PDL the next morning. Not only that, but he could not provide a hotel for us to spend the night. This is 2:30am, 3:30am BCN time. He told us to find our own hotel, but we do not have international phone plans, so we could not make the reservation ourselves. He had nowhere for us to sleep. Then he had us wait for his SATA associate to help us, and he put us on a flight to PDL the next day, but it was not direct! We had plans for the following day, a hotel reservation in Ponta Delgada that is NOT refundable, and now the final portion of our honeymoon is ruined. No one ever offered to give us vouchers for ANY costs or for the anxiety and total of 14 hours lost on the most important trip of our lives. Shameful."
Cons: "We were never prompted to pay for our check in baggage at the time of purchase and so when we showed up we were forced to pay 85 euros for one checked bag for an international flight on top of a ticket that already cost more than $250. The luggage restrictions were never shown previously. Will never fly TAP Portugal again."
Pros: "It was a cheap way to get to Lisbon with no frills."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess with everyone waiting in front of the gate starting 10 minutes or so before the boarding time. The seats didn't recline at all."
Cons: "Lost luggage. Late arrival. Had to run."
Pros: "Good food. More or less on time."
Cons: "No electrical outlets."
Cons: "The space is really uncomfortable"
Cons: "The worst airline"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Great food."
Cons: "Tap said that they could not find my seat (even through I paid Kayak / Webjet) and my tickets were cancelled. I lost my flight back and had to stay two days extra in a hotel and lost a day of work. Will never buy here again"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "The food was edible. The entertainment display was old. Not much leg room."
Cons: "There is only one unusual thing - the flight attendant was poking me to ask if I wanted food as I was clearly asleep and did not want to be bothered. There were still 90 minutes left till landing. Awkward and unnecessary and why in the world would she do that? Let people rest, please. :-)"
Pros: "Flight was on time and landed safely."
Cons: "Boarding was quite chaotic. Seats were very cramped."
Pros: "Service wonderful"
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight crew could have been more polite"
Cons: "Flight Washington late."
Cons: "Some not so friendly crew members on this flight. There was one tall, blonde flight attendant who wore so much perfume that I could taste it every time she walked down the aisle. You can't have that in an enclosed space. In this day and age of so many people having food allergies to nuts, why would you serve a dessert with almonds?? My daughter almost ate it because there was no warning label. It scares me to think what might have happened at 12,000 feet."
Pros: "The food and air conditioning"
Cons: "I purposely got a seat in the front row for extra leg room next to my two friends whose tickets I paid for. The TV in my seat was broken and I therefore could not at all watch TV unless I moved to another seat. I ended up not being able to sit with my friends for the entire seven-hour flight. The flight was delayed multiple times. The first time it was delayed because they were doing an extra security search by hand in the Gated area awaiting to board the plane. I have never seen this in my life and it was definitely started. Then we were on board the plane for almost an hour before they made an announcement that they found a broken part on the plane and had to switch planes. It was all very fishy. Quite frankly that I want my money back."
Cons: "The movies could have been better. Food was average."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Wait at baggage claim was too long"
Cons: "Flight left without us"
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled."
Cons: "Poor policy regarding musical instrument. Probably the only company asking to pay a special fee on hold or to buy an extra seat for a regular guitar. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, seats recline nicely, the flight was not full so there was room to move. AC power under the seats, plus an USB charger in every seat"
Cons: "The seats, just were not comfortable enough for that long of a flight."
Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."
Pros: "Food and attention"
Pros: "Great planes. Very professional and helpful staff. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Lobster appetizer was dry, hard, and tough. Steak dinner was prepared nicely, but of medium- low quality meat. Announcements are not heard in headphones, which in emergency situations could be dangerous. Noise reducing headphones supplier are effective in the noise reduction function, but not high quality audio resolution, with some dialogue intelligible. Business class seat wasn't a full recline as are those of most competitors, but it was comfortable. I didn't see any snack offerings that most other airlines have available between meals."
Pros: "The captain and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "Upgrade the entertainment system."
Pros: "Big space between seats. Best screen entertainment."
Cons: "Food was only average. Especially fish."
Cons: "Being sat in a middle seat. With that being said, it was OK. No problems."
Cons: "some chaos at boarding, with redundant passport control. Upon arrival, we were held for 45 min at JFK, as the gate wasn't ready and the crew had the engines running and fumes penetrated the cabin that made me almost sick. I guess that's not much of a TAP fault, but it was a bad finish of an otherwise uneventful flight..."
Pros: "Loved that seats were new and comfortable. The entertainment system was also newly updated and had plenty of options for everyone."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like was that the airline doesn't offer wifi!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and welcoming"
Cons: "The boarding process was pretty terrible and disorganized"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Pros: "Flight at time. Arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "I ordered a cava bottle and it was hot. But rest was ok"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Couldn't find out online which gate my flight was leaving from. Long bus ride from jetway to plane. No in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Pros: "In time boarding"
Cons: "Free refreshments. Early travelers need at least coffee or tea. Especially when they have connecting flights and no time to stop and get a proper meal."
Pros: "The crew was good. Seat is ok, not very comfortable."
Cons: "Too many people and little space to move"
Pros: "Everything. Perfect flight, service, food and Ann early arrival. All great. Memorable."
Pros: "Low cost and they were on time."
Cons: "I am under the impression that any international flight exceeding 6+ hours are supposed to serve food. This was not the case. Food was only served to people who had ordered it. Not even a glass of water was served."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about Iberia"
Cons: "I paid extra to book early so I could be assure of a seat with a view and so I could sit with my husband. Iberia charged my credit card 55.00 for the service and then, without my knowledge Iberia changed my seats and denied charging me extra. I have papers to prove my claim and will dispute the charges with my credit card company. The communication between flight attendants and passengers was horrible. Those of us who had not eaten yet (about half the plane in economy seating) watched the flight attendants bring out extra bread to all of the other economy passengers who had already received their meals, while we, who had not eaten yet, watched. My husband inquired if we were also receiving meals. He was told that everyone would eventually receive a meal. Horrible customer service, the worst ever. Later, before landing the pilot cancelled beverage and snack service because of possible weather conditions but never put the seat belt sign on until we began our decent. Nothing made any sense. It was like a crazy person was in charge. I would not trust Iberia to take me anywhere in the future."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."
Pros: "The seats were good and for once I felt like I had enough leg room. The entertainment consul had a good selection of movies and tv programs."
Cons: "The attendants were not very attentive and I eventually had to ask for a customs form since I never received one. I feel like long international flights should offer food without having to pay for it, whether or not it is a "discount" airline."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "Online check in failed, and legroom was non-existent - the worst of any alliance-based carrier I have ever flown."
Pros: "crew members were nice."
Cons: "They switched someone into my seat and didn't give me a new seat. It was very hot in the airplane making it very uncomfortable. They also forgot to take my tray before landing and I had to hold it in my lap."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable and crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. They need to load back to front."
Cons: "We were delayed two hours after boarding while the ventilation system was repaired. Some people got water...others not. We were the one not given water."
Cons: "Flight was ontime and food was good"
Pros: "Very limited - no vegetarian option. Was not enough quantity. No snacks in between"
Pros: "Always great service on Iberia."
Cons: "My only complaint, and it's frequently the case with Iberia, is that the cabin is always very cold. Thanks for the blankets, though!"
Cons: "Horrible from beginning to ending."
Pros: "Every flight was on time with no delays. Crew was excellent."
Cons: "Large plane did not have individual air controls and several flights were very warm."
Cons: "The customer service people were the least sympathetic and least helpful people I have ever met. They did nothing to accommodate us."
Pros: "Surprisingly more leg room"
Cons: "The plane was filthy. Crew members didn't seem to care to take care of passengers. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "The staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "We were on the plane for 2 hours before we were offered any drinks (soda, water, etc.) The seats were quite small ( I'm average sized.) and I often felt as if I were slipping off the seat. The aircraft was very warm with poor airflow."
Pros: "Check in was easy"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"

Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Mediocre food choices."
Pros: "Each seat had its own entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "We didn't get our boarding pass for the connection flight which caused a lot of problems when we got to NY. The airline attendant didn't say there was a problem with out itinerary. We found out until we got to NY and we were giving our luggage to Iberia for our connection. The person there said we were in the wrong airport! We had just landed there and our connection was leaving from there too JFK! He said there was nothing he could do and he sent us to the other airline counter to see if they would help us!"
Pros: "Flight run smooth and they treat us well."
Cons: "No information about 2 hours delay, no tv, old plane, no service, food disgusting. One of the worst flight ever"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
