Airline reviews
Pros: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Cons: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."

Pros: "Convenience"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to weather conditions The cabin was too hot It was difficult to find the cabin crew"
Cons: "The crew should have been there with the passengers"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Nice and smooth journey"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."
Pros: "Food on the second leg ( Istanbul to Delhi ) of the journey was good."
Cons: "Poor Boarding In Chicago, no lines were formed to let people board in an organized fashion. Insufficien/inappropriate food ( BEEF Prevented choices ) - Eliminate beef from your food choices. Many people like me can eat Non vegetarian meals like chicken, fish , EXCEPT BEEF Ran out of the Salmon fish dish. I was given a snacking cheese sandwich instead! This would not have happened if you had selected other than a beef dish! Cramped seating. The airlines greed shows in picking out the seat placement design. The plane had extremely limited knee room. I'm five foot five inches tall and my knees were almost touching the seat in front."
Pros: "Healthy food options. Clean decent seats."
Cons: "The airport experience. UNSANITARY TOILETS. Worst than any 3rd world"
Pros: "The staff is very accommodating and the meals served on board were good."
Cons: "Boarding was late and the line was unruly. Paths for boarding were marked but once a crowd forms it's impossible to see."
Pros: "Once my wife reached the gate, having left me behind at security, Turkish Airlines waited and were patient with us, the last to board the plane. The food and plane and bathrooms were all without any problems."
Cons: "We had a 80 minute layover in Frankfurt. Turkish Airlines should make note that this is not sufficient for making a connection. 1. The terminals require extensive walking. Not a problem except for time. 2. Security entering the terminal was seriously understaffed. There were a hundred security personnel, but thousands of passengers. The line stretched for half a mile. 3. Cutting, disorganization, mismanagement, lack of organization, and airport layout all contributed to making this a very stressful hour for us."
Cons: "Boarding was delaeyd 5 hour's ,Very very bag experience, the trailer baby and car seat i waited more than an hour, together with more people, were not found"
Pros: "The service was very nice and courteous"
Cons: "The seats don’t match up to the comfort level and privacy of the other airlines"
Pros: "Service, flight and landing, exceptional!!!"
Cons: "No cons..."
Cons: "The AC wasn’t turned on for 2 hours of passengers being on the plane and it was easily 100 degrees inside. Everyone was hot and miserable. The seats were also extremely close together. I have never been so uncomfortable on a long haul flight."
Pros: "service, no delays."
Cons: "I booked a place in advance, but the place was changed because I did not check in 24 hours before the flight. And I got a place near the restroom. It was terrible!!!! it was impossible to sleep and eat normally. And the smell of the restroom all the way. Very upset."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Please include sea food in your menu"
Pros: "Good personal movie choices"
Cons: "Taking a bus to plane"

Pros: "The meals, items to make the trip relaxing like a toothbrush and slippers."
Cons: "That I accidentally left my sweatshirt :("
Pros: "Turkish airlines has great service and crew in plane."
Cons: "Hi, The flight was great. However my layover at airport lounge was long. I didn't like their (Turkish Business lounge)policy for not letting me have the room to sleep as the layover was more than 7hrs. I was told to ask for a hotel at reception. When i did, they said that they dont have any hotel inside and cant take me to ourside hotel too. The staff at reception of lounge was not courteous either. I only needed the room to sleep for 3 or 4 hrs. Anyway, the flight itself was great, no complaints"
Pros: "I sat in coach but was treated like I was in first class. Hot towels. Entrees were very excellent. The food was above what I expected coach meals to be from my experiences flying different carriers to over 8 different countries. The customer service was amazing! The lady flight attendant for my section was very attentive and friendly. When I came out of the bathroom, I accidentally interrupted one male flight attendant from doing his job, he politely gestured which reassured me that he would be right with me when he was done with what he was doing. I asked him if they had any heartburn or antiacids available which they didn't. These 2 interactions with the flight attendants made the flight very enjoyable."
Cons: "I was in couch and in the middle seat. I usually get the aisle or window so it was a hard adjustment to sleep in the middle seat because I didn't have leg room and couldn't lean my body against anything so I had to shift often to avoid my bottom from feeling numb."
Pros: "Constant service, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Seat area is too small. No room for legs/feet. Garbage was not picked up."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "They lost one of our bags."
Pros: "The service was impeccable!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Although flight left a little late, it arrived ahead of schedule. Planes have been upgraded with better entertainment and are more comfortable."
Cons: "Online checkin was challenging since I had to find out my Istanbul address. Also, first 2-3 hours of flight were very rough & we didn't get any water (very important for long flights) until we had been on the plane for 3 hours."
Pros: "There is nothing bad that I can say about the trip. From the hot towels to refresh yourself to the friendly crew to the food. The entertainment choices were good and easy to use. I would defiantly fly with them again."
Pros: "Food, entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else. Europes Bedt Airline should be much better. Turkish Airlines is nothing against UAE airlines."
Pros: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."
Pros: "food was amazing"

Cons: "everything was perfect"
Pros: "food was excellent"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport could not tell me the gate of my connecting flight in a timely manner."
Pros: "There was a lot to choose entertainment wise."
Cons: "We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."
Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."
Cons: "Nathing wrong."
Pros: "Food was good, airplane was newer than expected (nearly brand new, from the look) and the movie selection was excellent - and it was all free."
Cons: "More legroom would be nice. Boarding was a bit delayed for no visible reason."
Pros: "* Two suitcases * Vegetarian-Indian food was amazing! * You get a little pack with socks, slippers, tooth brush, eye cover. It is great!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. When pushing the chair back, the cushion moves forward. Not the best for 6 feet and up people"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is the best airlines we have every flown on in our international travels. The food is excellent. The service is excellent."
Cons: "The seat was hard for a long trip"
Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."
Cons: "The Boeing 777 had the new, smaller seats. No control of overhead airflow among other things. Wish they still had the old Airbus A330's and 340''s."
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."
Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"
Pros: "excellent services provided by the crew members, nice food, great entertainment (up to date),"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service and comfort on my flight. Boarding went smoothly, and crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin service included Turkish delight, hot towel, an amenities bag, hot dinner, hot breakfast, and snacks available thought the flight in the galley. Entertainment was on demand and included a wide selection. Seats were comfortable with reasonable distance between rows for coach (better than on many U.S. carriers). They have ample restrooms and they are split throughout the coach cabin, which made lines for the restroom almost nonexistent. Restroom amenities include hand lotion and refreshing spray - very nice."
Pros: "The food and staff were terrific"
Cons: "It was more cramped than other long haul flights, and the temperature changed from hot to cold throughout the flight with no working air"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and was broken. I was not happy about this as it was a 10 hour flight, and could not get comfortable"
Pros: "FOOD,, CREW ATTITUDE & TIMEING."
Cons: "AS BOVE"
Pros: "New, clean, and outstanding seat layout gives lots of room. Flew a 777. Crew was very friendly and efficient. This is more roomy than any U.S. or British 747 I used to fly. The person in front of me fully reclined their seat and it had no impact on my comfort. I am 6 feet tall and this was great."
Cons: "I got overcharged for a bag $230 Dollars, both planes were delayed, the supervisor Danny at Ohare was horrible, will never use Lufthansa ever again!"
Pros: "Crew is phenomenal! Food was good. Comfortable overall"
Pros: "Since I was traveling with a child we were borded first"
Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfortable"

Pros: "Nice and pleasant crew Very responsive and kind"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "We had reserved a gluten free meal for my wife. When I went to check in it was gone from our reservation. The crew attempted to put something together so she would have food to eat but the response from their customer support team on the phone was not great. I recommend verifying all meals twice before 48 hours out. On a 7+ hour flight this is not fun."
Cons: "The plane was kept at a ridiculous hot temperature the whole flight. There were no air vents above your head and it was god awful uncomfortable for 9 hrs. On our return flight they lost all of our luggage from our whole group of people traveling together. 8 bags lost in total."
Pros: "The service and crew was amazing! We splurged on Business class and it was worth it! I was impressed with their efficiency at every point: checking in, boarding, and in-flight service."
Cons: "Sleeping overnight the cabin got a bit warm which made it a bit uncomfortable. I’ve never had that problem on a flight before."
Cons: "There was a very unruly child on the flight. The attendants did their best to deal with him but it was quite chaotic for a long flught"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding process. Plane was nice. Great legroom. Plenty of storage. Flight crew was helpful and very pleasant. Food was good. They had personal entertainment screens with a wide variety of movies, tv shows and games to play."
Cons: "Liked it all. Would fly them again"
Cons: "I waa not allowed to bring my carryon bag and was told either I pay 100.00 or leave it there. Totally unprofessional and sounded like a scam."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful. Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "There are coffins with more legroom. Boarding took an eternity."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable at all causing loss of sleep and terrible back ache."

Cons: "My overall experience was good"
Pros: "Went as expected no hiccups. Very well run pleasant staff. Good all-around service."
Cons: "A bit warm mid flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was wonderful the staff was nice."
Cons: "CONSTANT ANXIETY!! Our flight to Chicago was delayed. By 2 hours. This normally is not a big deal but it caused us to miss our connecting flight from Munich to Bremen. Then our new flight with a later time to Bremen was cancelled 20 minutes prior to boarding with no more flights to this area. The service center helped us redirect another flight to Hamburg, Germany. We had to fly to Vienna and then to Hamburg. We made it to Vienna after a 40 minute delay however, this delay caused us to miss our connecting flight once again. We were placed on an early flight the next morning to Hamburg which was an easy flight. When we got to luggage in Hamburg we noticed our luggage was missing. Supposably still in Munich. We then missed this flight and missed out on valuable time with friends who live in Germany."
Pros: "Very stable aircraft with attentive staff"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Amenities excellent. Food good. Entertainment system very good!"
Cons: "In business class the room for feet was too narrow. One of our seats had the metal framing in middle of my back bothersome."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, quite and smooth flight, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "I was never made aware of what food and drink options there were. I was asleep for the main meal and it would've been nice if they left a snack for me when I woke up."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the good was quite good."
Cons: "Nothing that can be changed. It was a long flight."
Cons: "Sits are extremy tight"
Pros: "Good pilots as usual new plane great service clean"
Cons: "Food could always get improvements"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. I was surprised that the food was as good as it was."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I am a woman in her late twenties under 5 feet tall and I had difficulty getting comfortable in the seats. The temperature was too hot the entire flight and I was unable to recline my seat back in order to sleep. Two bathrooms were out of commission the entire flight. This was the worst experience I've had on a red eye flight to Europe (I've traveled at least a dozen times between the US and Germany)"
Cons: "Missed my flight because the baggage check in closed, but what bothered me was that the attendant did not give any solutions or help, just coldly said “you can’t get on because you can’t check in your bag” and continued to tell me that I should just throw my luggage and all my things away to at least check in and get my body on the plane. I felt like I had to coerce her for help or advice on what I should do with my situation and she didn’t really give me any beneficial help until right before my gate closed and my plane departed. As customer service, shouldn’t they offer help without having the customer feel like they need to convince the check in attendant to give them alternate solutions?"
Pros: "Service was great, meal was fantastic, seats were very comfortable, and the assortment of things they provided for entertainment were fantastic."
Cons: "Still didn't get to destination. Two hours delayed was enough to make me miss the connection flight which result in a extra 7 hours wait in Munich for a 9 hours total. But they compensate all that with a 10 euros voucher, well worth the trouble."
Pros: "Missed the connection"
Cons: "Felt helpless and frustrated."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "Economy seats were really tight for a long flight. It was very warm and stuffy. Hard to sleep."
Pros: "The attention to service. We traveled with an infant and Lufthansa staff was more helpful and attentive than any other airline we've filed with our infant in the past."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly. Overall very pleasant experience."
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as other airlines."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Seat headrest flaps were broken"
Pros: "The food was good and seemed to be plenty for an airline. Most of the crew was really friendly. Just one seemed short and put out by requests. Lots of movie choices. Loved having a USB port available"
Cons: "got the back row, so no reclining, yet the person in front of me reclined so felt crowded and kinda stuck"
Pros: "The flight wasn't full. I was given a window seat with an empty seat next to it. I was able to move around and relax. There were lots of movies to choose from. The food was decent for a flight."
Pros: "No problems. As could be expected. Would do again."
Pros: "Depart on time. Entertainment excellent"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Good Airline, perfect service"
Pros: "Liked the flight from Frankfurt to Chicago better when it comes to food and drinks. It was spaced out better and we were offered more drinks. It was very nice to have a seat changed when checking in at the airport without any problems or telling me to ask once on board."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."
Pros: "Aircraft crew and operations were excellent."
Cons: "My original itinerary was booked with Airfare.com with a 93 minute layover at ORD, subsequently abbreviated to 40 minutes. Despite my repeated requests, neither Airfare.com nor United nor Lufthansa were willing to adjust my consequent itinerary to correct that conspicuous deficiency. Instead, both United and Lufthansa representatives repeatedly assured me that the 40 minute connection would present no problem; and Airfare.com tried to extract a 33% premium on its original sale to make any such adjustment. As it turned out, my apprehensions were realized when boarding and tarmac delays at SFO consumed the entire layover, and a subsequent gate delay at ORD frustrated the commendable efforts of the flight crew to facilitate the de-boarding of passengers with close connections. Contrary to United and Lufthansa's explicit reassurances, the long run halfway down one concourse and all the way back up a second left me four minutes short of the gate closure. You guys need to get your act together. If either airline chooses to finance its operations by selling tickets to an "aggregator", such a business practice should not relieve the airline of its obligation to provide reliable service to its ultimate customer, the flyer. I am currently working to identify an appropriate regulatory agency to whom to report this cynical misrepresentation of services and the patently corrupt business model upon which it is based."
Pros: "Worst flight experience EVER"
Cons: "Still have not found our lost bags"
Pros: "I had some issues that prevented me from making my first flight, and Lufthansa figured it all out for me. They have my eternal gratitude. And then, the flight was comfortable and the attendants kind."
Cons: "As always, flying an international red eye can be stressful and sleepless. That's on me though - if I wanted more comfort I would have bought a larger seat."
Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."
Pros: "Service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Every seat had headphones, but the plug didn't fit the available jack. If we hadn't brought our own earbuds it would have been 9 hours of silence."
Pros: "crew was helpful, seats comfortable, leg space good, entertainment good. a good flight without incident. boarding and getting off plane went smoothly."
Cons: "vegetarian meal had no protein, just white rice. Vegetables were good. Breakfast meal was very light, almost all carbohydrate. Some protein would have been helpful."
Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."
Pros: "Private screen for movies and music was wonderful. Blanket and pillow waiting on seat for you. Meal and drinks were very very good! Wonderful flight."
Cons: "Very strict instructions on when we had to close our window and when we had to open it."
Pros: "The choice of entertainment was wide ranged."
Cons: "It was a big plane, and I was sitting at the back. When they started to serve drinks and our meal, both times it took way over half an hour for them to get to us after they started to serve."
Pros: "Lots of movies."
Pros: "This flight was cancelled"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 10:30 flight to Frankfurt"

Coming through chicago is a nightmare. Customs are rude, everyone shouting, disorganized lines and horrible signage. Ticketing was horrible, rude agents, rude TSA, etc, etc.

Did not like anything about the flight Did not get economy plus that I paid for

Cons: "my first flight overseas. friendly staff. movies ..headphones..pillow and blankets included. 2 beverages included with meal. only downside was paying for checked bag. looks like that is included on the return flight so that won't be and issue on the way home. no issues with carryons."
Pros: "Smiling crew, clean airplane, tasty healthy food. I had all I needed to be comfortable."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything to improve on."
Cons: "Seat was terribl, space tiny, no legroom no air movement, hot the entire trip,"
Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Cons: "More room. Not losing our luggage at the end."
Pros: "The quality of the seat, cleanliness of the aircraft (with the exception of the restrooms). Ground and lounge crew excellent and knowledgeable. Boarding was swift but confusing."
Cons: "In cabin crew was substandard. Very slow in the food service, often times rude and lound when addressing passengers, and failed to clean the restrooms in flight, which left them in dire state and smelled. An unusually unpleasant set of attendants, and sadly not one of them made up for the lack of professionalism the others showed. No priority boarding, they proceeded with boarding the first half of passengers all at once so rather confusing."
Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment options were good."
Cons: "My seat was broken and when I alerted the attendant, in a rude tone, she replied “what do you want me to do?” Not exactly the friendliest experience. It was only compounded by the fact that when we were landing, another attendant insisted I put seat completely upright, and when I told her it had been broken the entire trip, she began forcefully shoving my seat. Not awesome."
Cons: "Seats are too small and dont recline for an 8 hour flight. You feel like an animal in a cage. No choice for dinner and no snacks between dinner and breakfast."
Cons: "Flight to Stockholm was cancelled. SAS Provided no informaton on the steps for re-scheduling my flight. I had to call the SAS headquarters in Stockholm before receiving any guidance on what to do next. All service attendants ditched the ticketing desk leaving one poor employee to answer questions for over 70 disgruntled passengers. Very very very poor communication. Luckily I was finally able to book a flight using another airline after waiting on hold for 20 minutes with the regional customer service provider."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped in a tiny seat behind someone well over 6’5 who kept slamming his seat back to get more room. We were later diverted for a person on the flight who had health issues all the way back to Canada when we were practically over Ireland. We flew back I believe an hour and a half back only to not have proper fuel equipment which took fueling forever and caused our crew to go past their duty day which made use get diverted again to Iceland for a new crew and even more gas. We were held on the plane for a total of 8 additional hours! We were never allowed to get off the plane, we were given very minimal food and drink the additional 8 hours, and when my girlfriend asked what was going on your information person in Copenhagen said they had no idea what was going on with my Flight and had no idea where it was."
Pros: "One crew member was particularly nice and personable."
Cons: "We waited an hour in the plane before take-off and after boarding, during which time the crew deliberately filled the cabin icecold air thick with the highly toxic fumes from the deicing. I got a headache from it. Throughout the process the entertainment units were disabled, when they could have helped distract passengers from this ordeal. The food was disgusting. When the Danish government has repatedly bailed out SAS, it would make a lot more sense for everyone involved to have higher quality Danish products on board for the meals, especially for such things as dairy products."
Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "All went well !! On time friendly staff ."
Pros: "food was delicious and I liked that they give everyone a full bottle of water at the start of the flight; plane was new and updated"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and just a giant mass of people funneling in; tv show options only had 1-3 episodes and not entire seasons"
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: "I had read several horrible reviews after I booked my flight but I was pleasantly surprised. The check in and boarding were smooth and had no issues. The seats, though not overly large, we're comfortable and not tight. The food was good and service was fast and efficient. Overall a good experience."
Pros: "I loved that there were a lot of different movies, TV shows, games, music, and more to choose from- all for free! Then there was a dinner- not bad at all-, a snack later on, and breakfast too, all included. Headphones if you needed them ( lifesaver there as I had temporary misplaced mine), a blanket, and a pillow. The crew was really polite, and there was never more than one person in line for the bathroom."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They gave us blankets and pillows. Each seat had its own entertainment system but it only worked with the earbuds given out by the crew and the controls were cumbersome to use."
Cons: "The plane was hot and stuffy the entire trip. There are no longer individual controls for air. It was so uncomfortable and we were hot a sweaty the whole flight. The crew said that there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the onboard crew were very nice."
Cons: "Since the flight was delayed taking off, the layover in Stockholm was very short. The airline did nothing to rush those of us through or contact our connecting SAS flights, and a few of us missed our connections by just a few minutes because of it. SAS did provide alternate tickets for me, but I arrived at my destination several hours late and the whole situation could have been avoided pretty easily."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Cons: "Water and beer paying"
Pros: "This was my first flight in SAS and it was a wonderful experience. The crew was pleasant and the seating was spacious and the plane was clean. Very refreshing atmosphere."
Pros: "Upgraded 2 biz 4 reasonable $, everything great"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly crew. Would fly again!"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "I did not like my flight because ... I could not take it! I needed to change only one date (return) and was quoted $1300 for that one change. Getting a completely new ticket was cheaper, but not cheap. With such cost of even minor changes, next time I will look into booking directly with airlines, instead of Kayak; sorry to say that, as I really liked using your service."
Pros: "The free, in-flight movies, the in-fight dinner, and the friendly, multi-lingual staff were GREAT commodities."
Cons: "I was in economy/SAS Go class, so it was nearly impossible to get more than one or two hours of sleep on a long flight, (i.e. about eight hours). Maybe they should reserve the seats with extra leg room for those who actually need it, and have the seats recline even further."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The food very good. Toilets inorder and clean, even just before Copenhagen. In Chicago i had to wait about 30 min tor a wheelchair. It seemed that noone wanted to go to termimal 5. A very nice young man finally came, he gave me frindly and excellent service. ALIS"
Pros: "Everything worked well."
Cons: "Movie selection could be lager."
Pros: "It was perfectly On schedule, the plane was very clean,"
Cons: "Pilot was not easily understood, boarding was a nightmare"
Pros: "Excellent meal and very friendly staff."
Cons: "The cabin temperature seemed pretty warm."
Cons: "Not enough room to work on laptop."
Pros: "Easy flight, nice crew members, no issues had here"
Cons: "My luggage didn't show up for five days of a 7 day trip from a direct flight! SAS was completely useless by phone, email, and Facebook.... They set up a phone line that nobody monitors and had my luggage in-country for days before even sending someone to deliver it"
Pros: "Wide seats with excellent leg room in exit row- a bottle of water waiting at or seats-- we love the two seat configuration --attendants ready to serve any need with a smile."
Cons: "Bought our tickets from Kayak and as a result had a very difficult time upgrading seats."
Pros: "Wonderful service! Flight attendants kind and thoughtful. Once in terminal 5 (from terminal 1) a Sas gate agent escorted us to flight since our previous United flight was so late"
Pros: "The flight crew (flight attendants are the best I've encountered in terms of tone and hospitality) cleanliness, the food, frequent offers of water, your own TV and numerous options for entertainment and ability to track flight"
Cons: "Like the sleek style but still wish there was a little more leg room"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. As always, I like SAS's service. Crew are friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "When waiting to board the flight, it was difficult to understand when different parts of the plane were boarding because of the soft volume of the loud speakers. All people could really hear was "boarding now", which created a bit of a rush of everyone. It would be helpful if there were an SAS representative to stand next to the line, to physically say to people, 'Okay, we are now only doing priority boarding. If you are priority boarding, please stand her. After that, if you are business class, please stand here. Everyone else, please wait, but know that we will start to board from the back of the plane. Thank you." This will to help guide people BEFORE the ticket check."
Cons: "Charging for second beverage. Losing our bag and not getting it to us for the duration of our travels, despite repeated promises to do so."
Cons: "Late take- off and landing. Indifferent flight attendants. Two of my children were bullied into giving up their bulkhead seats to a couple with a child. We had to pay extra for those seats and we were given no compensation."
Pros: "The plane was brand new with comfortable seats that had adjustable headrests. This made sleeping very easy. I was impressed with the food and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The seating area was cramped making it difficult to move around, do work or view the screen.I know this is typical of coach class but I still don't like it. The selection of movies was adequate but smaller than I'm used to. There wasn't much in the way of music to choose from. Only one choice for jazz and classical."
Pros: "The food was excellent on this flight. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Entertainment was hard to hear with the ear buds provided. Wait time in security at Chicago was terrible. It took nearly an hour to get through security."
Pros: "Lucky is the passenger to get onboard a new SAS plane! Cleanliness aside. The built in phone chargers to the tele is genius. Nice to land fully charged!"
Cons: "I didn't like that they interrupted programming to announce they were walking on board shopping through the cabins. They did this twice! Really unnecessary!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old and really dirty. no televisions. I booked a premium seat, but was assigned a middle seat in economy. Not sure where the glitch took place. Cabin crew was friendly though. ALSO, SAS/United booked my connection through O'Hare, giving me about 1.5 hours to clear customs and security...I was only able to make my flight due to some nice people who let me cut lines and a lot of running through the terminal. Generally annoyed with the experience."
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight, and had space to lie down. I skipped the dinner, and the stewardesses did not wake me up at all, inspite of their serving most people on board. When I woke up close to landing, I asked for a cup of coffee, which the stewardesses made for me promptly. The flight was smooth, and the good night's rest was refreshing."
Pros: "On time flights. Very friendly personnel"
Pros: "Clean airplane, good food and good customer service from check in to landing."
Pros: "I liked that it was comfortable and that the crew did not constantly make announcements or wake you. They made boarding easy. I loved being able to utilize the lounge. My 4 hour layover was easy and relaxing."

Ckin and bording were great! Top team in Porto.

The Worst

Cons: "It was delayed on our way to destination. Also wish it was a direct flight to ponta delgado instead of going through lisbon. It was too much back and forth."
Pros: "Boarded fast"
Cons: "Hours of flight"
Pros: "TAP always has great team members and crew. They are polite, professional and helpful. The flight itself is comfortable and relaxing; very enjoyable."
Cons: "TAP does not check your bags all the way through if you are having a layover. This makes NO SENSE and requires that you retrieve your luggage from baggage claim, and then check in once more and then another trip through security once again! This never happens in the US - one of the few things we get right. Also, I have never had to board a plan from the tarmac since 1970 in the US - why do we have to always wait for and take buses from our check in gate out to the flight line? And how is this ever considered, "Premium Boarding?" It's like a cattle car. Fix these things and I will sing the praises of TAP forever."
Pros: "The lady checking me in was nice"
Cons: "Items were stolen from my bag"
Cons: "Maybe have one flight be on time. Train ground crew how to put on fuel."
Pros: "Good entertainment, great price"
Cons: "Had about 30 people on our flight that was taking another TAP connecting flight - missed the gate by less than two minutes - did not hold the plane when they could have"
Pros: "NOTHING.....................TAP AIR PORTUGAL CANCELLED THE FLIGHT WITHOUT PREVIOUS NOTIFCATION. I HAD CHECKED IN ONLINE, HAD THE APP ON MY PHONE WITH MY MOBILE NUMBER AND EMAIL...................NO ONE ADVISED. i SHOW UP AT AIRPORT AND NO ONE TAKES RESPONSIBILITY..............DREADFUJL AIRLINES"
Cons: "EVERYTHING...................THEY HAVE NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. THIS WAS FOR A BUSINESS CLASS TRAVEL.................JUST IMAGINE WHAT A NIGHTMAORE THIS WAS FOR ECONOMY TRAVELING PASSANGERS"
Pros: "It got us to our destination."
Cons: "Seats sucked. Screaming kids. Wouldn’t let us bring our carry-on for the last leg: Lisbon to Barcelona even though there was room."
Pros: "Boarding in Lisbon well organized but delayed at check in and on the tarmac - 40 mins. Food on this flight good. Crew fine both flights."
Cons: "Both Tap flights delayed, little info'/explanation about this.Boarding in Copenhagen chaotic, problematic tickets holding up the queue with only one staff member. Food on board was so boring and unappetising."
Cons: "Ok, it's TAP, it's a bargain, but the "breakfast" was a pitiful piece of meat on a stale piece of bread"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Worst accommodations for baggage on a international flight in my opinion.Pay for a bag is the best advice in my opinion this airline barley lets you bring anything with. Disgusting plane it was so dirty I took a shower after this flight and the amount of dust in the air was visible terrible"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "My baggage did not get delivered to the final destination, that could have been handled better."
Pros: "Great food!"
Pros: "Servicio"
Cons: "Proceso para comprar maletas desde que uno compra el pasaje, no me permitió por internet y pague demasiado en él aeropuerto"
Cons: "Milan airport closed and flight diverted. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Mechanical delays leaving London, missed flight connection to New York, now TAP wants to charge me for rescheduling!"
Pros: "Punctuality, service and confort"
Cons: "at check-in agent said we did not have coverage on our ticket for our 2 -50lb bags dispite informing her that we were covered and had no problem on our arriving flight to Portugal - we had to pay 196 Euros or leave our bags in Portugal Additionally we had ordered a wheelchair to assist my wife to the gate - which we also had our arriving flight - agent said she had no record of it. She said we could wait which we did and waited 2 hours to obtain a wheelchair (and came close to missing our plane) not to mention the stress associated with the whole check in process"
Pros: "The flight crews were polite. The short flight journey included a simple light lunch with drink."
Cons: "The flight departure time was delayed for one hour."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, your site said that I would not have a luggage charge, but I was charged 37 euros more when I checked in."
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Pros: "Good service, nice meal."
Cons: "No USB ports or movie choices. Entertainment screen very small."
Cons: "Theo charge me a lot for my luggages I just try to call many times to tap for ask about the sports luggages and I never can reach then nobody ever answer the fone . They charge me 124 $ for my board and 90 dollars for my bag the total is 214 $ that’s almost the same price of the ticket ."
Cons: "Next-day connecting flight after a delayed arrival and involuntary stopover in Porto due to air traffic over LIS. This time around, the flight took off an hour late because of [guess...] air traffic. Well, my dear LIS management, that's how you sink your national carrier."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Nice crew, on time departure"
Cons: "Old plane, bad food"
Pros: "Staff good very pleasant. Entertainment good."
Cons: "Bit late into Lisbon and luggage left behind."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was only for meat eaters and not very Good. Would have liked a vegetarian option."
Cons: "had to pay bag fee, though website said 1 hold bag was included!"
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. :-)"
Cons: "Their short flight from Frankfurt to Lisbon was not that comfortable. Seats were thin, close together. My knees were jammed against the seat in front of me. Glad the international flight was more comfortable. Somehow we did not get the memo that there was a 0 baggage allowance for an international flight. Most give 1 or two bags free. So when we had to pay 80 euros for each bag it started off our trip with TAP a lot disappointed. We still have to fly back and we can go online and pay before hand and get it for 45 euros each. Increased out ticket prices by 205 euros. Will make me take a second thought before I book with TAP again."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Smaller plane, tighter space, no entertainments"
Pros: "Check in app"
Cons: "Non-reclining seats"
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: "The on-board entertainment was decent, as they had pretty recent films available to view. The on-flight attendants were very friendly and professional."
Cons: "I'm an average sized skinny male (5'11"/ 180 cm), and I almost literally couldn't fit in my seat. These airlines are doing everything save on costs by jamming as many people as possible onto an aircraft...this makes for a terribly uncomfortable 12hr long red-eye flight. The food was mediocre at best (my gf actually got sick from it), and the boarding process was anything but organized, allowing anyone to board at any given time. It was very hectic and took far too long."
Pros: "Seats were big and comfortable with lots of leg room."
Cons: "No entertainment on first 3 hr intra-Europe flight. Food was not good."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent. Flight was relatively smooth."
Cons: "Seats in economy were uncomfortable. Food was fair, at best. Wine was offered with dinner(a plus) but only once."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it. I place all of the blame on the Lisbon connecting terminal. I am not happy."
Cons: "They didn't hold the flight for a minor delay of our flight into Lisbon."
Cons: "Long lines at check-in and airline checkin-counter number confusion."
Pros: "Shitty service , terrible food , stay away"
Cons: "Horrible food , worst flight attendants , boarding was a joke . Star alliance needs to cut them !"
Pros: "Flight Time was short and arrival and departure times excellent."
Cons: "Could have had more recent movies and more variety"
Cons: "the second flight was late by 30 min."
Pros: "Finally getting to JFK"
Cons: "Crew with the attitude, limited access to toilets, late departure for the unexplained reasons"
Cons: "Less leg room than what I would consider standard. I am 6 feet tall and my knees touched the seat in front of me."
Pros: "They lost my luggage. What else is there to tell?????"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. What else is there to tell!!!!"
