Horrendous experience from start, and still waiting for the only checked bag that despite of six hours of layover in Miami was never transferred to the right plane to JAX. Attempt to change flights or seats were hindered by kayak lack of service and call center run around. NEVER AGAIN WILL I USE KAYAK OR AMERICAN AIRLINES!!!!
Very friendly crew, but again had separated seats and had to swap.
The crew was great. We were in first class in 2D and 2F. The man in front of us coughed continually with a very deep cough. We were very concerned that he may have been infected and we plan to be tested for Covid-19. As a Condition of flying we support airlines requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test within the past 72 hours. Otherwise airlines may find a segment of the population refusing to fly.
Cons: "Getting all my luggage. Allowing my wife and I to sit together"
Cons: "AA needs to standardize their WiFi. Sometimes it is boingo, GoGo, or Panasonic or something other. Each has a different way of logging in. It is way too complicated. Sometimes you can watch on the iPad in a browser, other times you need a flash player or the AA app. Have a common way of at least accessing the internet, otherwise it can take 10 minutes to log in if switching from a GoGo yo Panasonic service. It is just too difficult and buggy. I am glad I don’t actually pay for the internet."
Pros: "My flight attendant always smiled and was very hospitable."
Pros: "Being relatively on-time was nice for a change."
Cons: "Seats are tight / uncomfortable. Crew could be better at spotting intoxicated passengers and not continuing to serve them."
Cons: "Truth is they practice in like cattle. I ended up sitting next to a ginormous woman. It was a very uncomfortable flight from DC to Charleston. Come on American you're better than that quit using such small planes!"
Pros: "Good service and great customer service"
Cons: "App functionality"
Pros: "Flight was fast and professional."
Cons: "No reason to delay a 55 minute flight to make it over 4 hours just for rain. Absolutely ridiculous and I will be calling and complaining to be compensated for my time."
Pros: "Crew was great! Flight was smooth and on time!"
Cons: "Air conditioning!!!"
Pros: "Nice quick flight."
Cons: "Plane was really small. So we’re the seats."
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. Had a connection that was delayed several times and eventually cancelled without explanation. I was traveling for my best friend's wedding and they did not work with me to try to get me on the next flight. I had to book another flight from another airline."
Pros: "Seating, nice personnel"
Cons: "Long layover in Chicago"
Cons: "Nothing you could do, it was a maintenance issue."
Cons: "More space for carry on luggage"
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Pros: "Best leg room last leg."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "Food wasn’t awful."
Cons: "Late. Very. Delayed at departure, then parked on the tarmac for most of an hour, perhaps more, to get to a gate. several of the cabin attendants were very unhappy people, grumpy, snappish and harsh. Old plane, no frills. (Center screens for entertainment, no usb charging in main cabin) come-one—use this poor old guy for short haul stuff."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The flight landed early."
Cons: "Seat back in economy was uncomfortable for a shorter person. The head rest pushed my head so far forward that my back and neck were curved so much it caused upper back pain."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Cons: "No individual TVs. I won’t fly without making sure my individual seat has its own!!!"
Cons: "Aircraft seating was terrible! Seats were way too close together. Seats were uncomfortable. Couldn’t even get an entire soda from the attendant. Made me remember why I dislike flying."
Pros: "staff was nice, but check-in is clumsy and inefficient"
Cons: "plane from Prague to Philly is ancient, still has the drop-down screens from 1981 and the radio station dial for listening in, but that didn't even matter as the video system was down for half the flight. No electrical charging capability unless you carry a car adapter with you. Overhead space was tiny. At least they had headrests, which is weird since the seats are obviously 30+ years old. Business class and first have been upgraded with new features."
Cons: "I’m still hungry and incredibly tired. Nobody buys their main cabin extra product, so there’s many empty seats. Ripe for the families that don’t want to pay extra to sit together. Those families bring kids, screaming kids to a section filled with higher fare paying customers. The FA in my section had such big hips, that she knocked my shoulder EVERYTIME she walked by. Not only that, everytime she did the courtesy reach over to grab empty cups from the middle seat, she hit me with her trash bag. Woulda been fine had I been awake, but I was trying to sleep in between the bouts of screaming from the devil possessed kids."
Pros: "Flt on time & comfortable. Crew outstanding!!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Boarding lounge and plane were hot. No gluten-free options for snacks. At least I’d had a long layover where I could get a decent meal."
Cons: "Old overhead monitors for movies. Audio did not work at my seat."
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Everything. The outdated planes need to be renovated with seatback screens. The entertainment featured on the aisle screens were unappealing. The economy seats are smaller than on other planes we've flown in; my husband could not fit his legs in his own leg area and was miserable the entire flight. And lastly, the plane was freezing, even after turning off the air overhead. Everyone around me was huddled under their skinny blankets shivering."
Pros: "There was ample food."
Cons: "No individual tvs or phone chargers or in flight wifi available. Flight was delayed. Luggage was emptied onto a different carousel instead of the one that was posted. There was no announcement made of the carousel change."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding, on time, when I asked at the gate for a window seat, I was accommodated. The food was very tasty and the flight attendants pleasant. Overall happy with this flight!"
Cons: "It is impossible to sit comfortably due to the headrest that pushed my head forward regardless how I positioned it and removing it was impossible. There were no individual screens with in-flight entertainment and although I usually read or sleep, I can see how it would bother someone."
Pros: "Early and friendly."
Pros: "I flew economy. We left the gate on time, the seat was comfortable, entertainment was varied, flight attendants that I came in contact with were professional and pleasant, food was hot and very good, pilots got me where I wanted to go, and that little container of ice cream - oh I love it! The plane was not completely full, which made the seating more comfortable than it would have been if the plane was full."
Cons: "I was ushered into what became a very slow line to board. The employee at the end of my line had to deal with a few problems so I ended up boarding close to the end, behind those with higher group boarding numbers than I. Having a single line up to the two boarding employees, would avoid that, albeit make a longer line to begin with."
Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"
Cons: "No wifi but there were old style TVs throughout the cabin. It was an old plane"
Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Cons: "We were denied boarding to our flight because the gate agent said we were late to the podium. We were there 10 minutes prior to departure. The jetway was still full of passengers. There was no reason she did not let us on other than she wanted to punish us for being late to the podium. We missed our connecting flight and had to rent a car to get home. Corporate American Airline customer relations was awful to work with. They did not care."
Cons: "customs in miami is aweful. long waits. its a long maze to get back to the domestic terminal as well."
Pros: "There were several empty seats on the flight, and Evelyne was very helpful in reseating me to a seat where I had enough room to use the in-flight wifi and work a full, productive day (without a seat in front of me obstructing the use of my laptop). She's the epitome of customer service."
Pros: "I liked that there were no stops."
Cons: "I had an instant panic attack when our flight was delayed because a box cutter was found under a seat on the flight that just arrived. I get honesty, but I was seriously reconsidering getting on the plane, because what if they missed something? I was working out in my head what would happen to our pets if we died on this flight, because we don't have a will yet."
Pros: "Friendly polite staff. Plane left and arrived on time."
Pros: "The free cookies were very good and the service was great the flight was smooth and quick"
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
Cons: "The flight never happened, so all in all, things we're pretty terrible!"
My trip out was a nightmare of epic proportion. Delayed flight for my flight from SNA to Phoenix had to be rerouted to Dallas Fort Worth to Heathrow I was never notified that my connecting flight from Heathrow to Prague was canceled. American Airlines told me that they would issue a boarding pass for the third leg of my trip out. Instead I got rerouted to Paris dumped with no information for a connecting flight which turned out to be with Air France by giving me no information or any way to be able to transfer to my final leg of my mouth fourth flight I was left stranded in Paris overnight. My bags were also left at Heathrow and I did not receive them until three days after arriving on my trip American Airlines did a horrible job British Airways to the horrible job I’m filing a grievance with British Airways I will never fly with them again. I will have to say that the return trip though went rather smooth they didn’t give me much time to get to my connecting flight from Prague to Heathrow then onto LAX I barely had 25 minutes to make it all the way across the entire breadth of the airport. Service was fantastic on the way back complete contrast to the flight out there which was again a nightmare of epic proportion‘s and enough for me to never use AmericanAirlines or British Airways ever again. The only offset is again the return trip which was excellent other than some very tight scheduling on connections
I loved the FinnAir blueberry juice
Pros: "Glenlivet whisky for free"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "I could not check in online and BA is not available on the kiosk in the airport."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. However the business class seats were terrible. You had to step over a sleeping customer to get out of the seat. There was no place to put anything other than a distant little drawer under the TV. The food choices were the same old chicken and pasta."
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "Crew was great given the circumstances that British Airways had significant systems issue that caused significant delay and missing of connecting flight"
Cons: "Trip was a disaster"
Cons: "LHR made us wait 30+ min upon arrival for a gate."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Seet could be more comfortable."

Cons: "no air vent in my row. no complimentary food and drinks"
Cons: "Our baby has broken leg with plaster cast and Cathay didn’t deliver our stroller to Hongkong so we had to carry him on the hands whole afternoon...this was unpleasant experience...also when we arrived from HongKong to Denpasar Bali we found that one of our suitcases was damaged broken :/"
Pros: "I did not fly. Cancel month ago, no money back. No good company!"
Cons: "I cancel month ago, no money back !!! No good company!"
Pros: "Crew is incredibly kind."
Pros: "Everything was just perfect. Thank you very much!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Crew. Crew was very rude. I understand their day was difficult due to the delay, but it made it worse for passengers, many of whom missed or were about to miss connections"
Pros: "Flight was fine, staff friendly and caring"
Cons: "Transfer in Heathrow - they dont return your gate checked stroller at gate, they dont have loaners, lines are long and distances huge and with no stroller this is super tiring They dont even give free water or cold drinks on this flight and we were lare late due to air traffic at Heathrow"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding."
Cons: "Sat near gate waiting 15 min for ground crew. Flight was on-time and weather fine so there was no reason for a crew not to be there. Then sat at gate because no attendant available to move the jetway. Again, poor planning or cut staff to save money at the cost of timely service."
Pros: "The crew was sick and one lady kept running to the bathroom?!? The plane was old..."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good selection of food/drinks from the menu and courteous staff"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The airline is very mechanical Customer service in non personal and robotic"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Lost my bag. No idea where it was for 48 hours. Staff was ok. Ran out of meal options, took 4 asks to get a glass of wine and by the time I got it, I was done eating."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "Did not like that you have to pay for water or soft drinks"
Pros: "There was no event happening. This was good :-)"
Cons: "No sodas, no water, no food on this flight. I'm still pissed off."
Pros: "The plane was pretty much empty. There were very small number of passengers."
Pros: "As always, a great flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Cons: "Waited forever for the wheelchair come if they came on time I would of made it to my flight because they took over an hour I missed my connection flight to JFK"
Pros: "Cabin crew from London to Heathrow was pleasant. Movie choice was good."
Cons: "Ordeal at Heathrow of going miles up and down, taking two transports and having to go through full security again for connecting flight. Checked in 24 hours to connecting flight to London or 30 hours prior actual flight from London. Airline indicated that plane had only one middle seat. Tried to get a better seat at airport, but BA ground crew did not even check and said flight was full. Yet my one of my fellow passengers was able to get window seat without extra pay 3 hours after I was denied. Sardine city for 7 hour flight that turned 8 hours."
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "To pay for WATER!!!!!"
Pros: "The captain kept us aware of the delay and the reasons for the delay."
Cons: "No free food or drink other than water."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seat for a business class"
Cons: "No snacks for 8 hours. Crew inattentive."
Pros: "boarding and timing"
Cons: "fly attendants were kind of rude.. One completely ignore me while taking the order of the passengers sitting just next to me. The other one couldn't even say thank you when I did her job by bringing my garbage to her station. It was my first BA flight and I was not expecting those unfriendly attitude from british people."
Cons: "A lot of stress: our 1st leg IAD to Dublin was cancelled, than we got 2 set of tickets rebooked. On the way back there was a stress since we had a "problem with the ticket" Apparently the Aer Lingus made all those mistakes."
Pros: "The crew was caring and we were kept comfortable with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was good, too, especially the cheesecake!"
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like."
Cons: "We flew with BA from Prague via Heathrow to San Diego on May 30 just day after they started operating normally after computer glitch. From Prague we were on time, When boarding in London started we were told to sit down again claiming Boeing 777 had equipment problem and they were waiting for parts to fix it. Our departure was delayed by 1 hour. Seats in economy class are really cramped so when seats are declined person behind can not eat without banging head into the back rest. Difficult to get in and out of seat as well. Arm rests do not come all the way up so one has to squat to avoid being hit by arm rest. Not very pleasant on 11 hour long flight. Joe"
Cons: "I was annoyed that they charged for soft drinks and water on this flight. There was no entertainment. Just a seat on a plane."
Cons: "The check in process from Prague to London to Dallas was inefficient. Too few agents, minimal direction from the representative guiding the line. Also, there were no food/beverage option unless you paid for them! No coffee etc on a 650a flight unless it was purchased. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Prague to London flight First I was surprised and disappointed to find out there were so many extra fees. They get you to buy the ticket with a cheaper price and then hit you with all the extra fees e.g. choosing a seat, luggage, food, drinks, you will pay for everything except the flight. The second thing is that when I did go to the BA website on 5 different occasions to pay for my luggage and in order to get a cheaper rate for doing it online before check-in, it gave me a message that the site to do it was not working and that I needed to pay for it at the airport check-in. When I went to check-in at the airport the ticket agent seemed annoyed that I had luggage to check in when I hadn't registered it online. When I told her that the site was down and I wasn't able to do it before hand, she showed no sympathy or understanding. Instead she proceeded to charge me for checking my luggage. It was an outrageous amount of over $80 USD. I have never in all my travels around the world been charged for my luggage. I only travel with one carry on and one medium size check luggage because of my extensive travel. I know charging for luggage may be something more airlines will start doing but I did not think that BA would be one of them. I also would have appreciated some compensation for theirsite being down and not being able to get a discount on the fee because I couldn’t check it online. I am extremely disappointed with my BA experience and will never fly with them again. That is unfortunate for them since I am in the process of traveling around the world for the next few years while writing a travel blog and book. I will definitely publish my review and experience in detail, which I am sure will influence my readers and followers."
Cons: "flight delayed over 1.25 hours because we missed our runway time due to being "unable to get a head count" of the people that are on board. This should be embarrassing for BA. And i don't understand how after all the security, boarding pass and passport checks that you do not have an accurate head count of your passangers. Thus I missed my connecting flight and had to wait over 4 hours for another and got a measly 10 Euros as compensation. Also, they don't even give water for free, and a 200ml juice costs 1.5 Euros which a) its bad juice and b) overpriced. All food you now pay extra for, and they didnt even make it in time to the last few rows so even if Id want to purchase something, I couldn't."
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Pros: "Stewards were very friendly"
Cons: "Need more opportunities for drinks, water. Did not board the back of the plane first."
Pros: "Got there in one piece."
Cons: "Older plane, no touch screen tv in head rest, no movies on demand, limited leg space"
Everything was comfortable
Overbooked flight which led to big delay.
Delayed again for over 2 hrs
Pros: "Worst customer service or actually non-existent, rude and ignorant agents. Will never fly with them again."
Cons: "TAP should simply shutdown or do a major reform as the airline operates in the last century."
Pros: "The entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Everything else was terrible. From check-in to boarding to flight."
Pros: "Average friendliness of crew, paying for extra leg room seat is a must"
Cons: "Food with a taste, rather than dull"
Pros: "I didn’t like a thing. The crew from the gate all the way to the end was rude and nasty. The crew scanning people to get on the plane were so rude at the beginning it was the worst and I fly for my work and I’ll never fly TAP air Portugal again."
Cons: "Train the staff to be nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding process could’ve been organized better to make for a more efficient and speedy journey onto plane."
Pros: "Seats and snack"
Cons: "No delay in departure"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The offered an upgrade to bid on. I did and was rewarded one for the 4 of us. It turned out that the seats were exactly like every other seat on the plane in size. They did provide free drinks and a well used towel. When you ask to be paid for an upgrade you should be clear what that really is."
Pros: "Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "I had two flights that day: TAP Portugal: greeters, assistance loading carry-on, fish with potatoes and spinach, glass of wine, pudding, sandwich, carrot cake bite, coffee and a blanket. Jet Blue: water three hours in, (unhealthy) bag of chips."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 20 minutes, then another 20 minutes, then another 20 minutes, ended up leaving over an hour late"
Pros: "The plane was fairly new, clean, and comfortable seats."
Cons: "A better selection of the main meals in business class."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No gluten free meal available"
Pros: "Really spacious, clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Good service but not top of the line "go out of their way" service"
Pros: "nice people and cordial staff"
Cons: "cold night in Vienna, pre-boarded then waiting on the bus for 15 min (with doors open) before driven to the plane. then again landing in Lisbon, off the plane then bused to the terminal. slow"
Pros: "In flight crew is really nice and respectful, seats were comfortable, clean bathrooms, in flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Boarding at Lisbon airport was one of the worst experiences. Passengers were asked to line up at least 30 minutes before boarding started and it was hot in the terminal. As boarding started, passengers were split into groups by boarding zones...premium passengers boarded first as expected, then people with small bags. This is where the problem was because a group of four passengers who had one small bag (that could fit under seat) were allowed to go before passengers in boarding zones A/B. The whole idea is people who could fit bags under their seat would board first, but the tap team made a mess and allowed many passengers with large bags in as well. I was one of the last ones to be boarded and stranded on the line for over 40 minutes with my backpack...after traveling for a month and being delayed in Rome, last thing you want is stupid mistakes like this to cause you stress."
Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."
Pros: "Nice and easy. Very uncomplicated."
Cons: "I am an Asian woman. After seeing the person who is a Caucasian man set next to me used the toile right in front of our seat twice during the flight, I went to use it. Just as I was entering the toilet a flight attendant yelled at me saying: "you can’t use this toilet. It’s for privileged people. You have to go to the end of the aircraft and use that one!" Then 10 minuets later another caucasian man seated behind me went to use the toilet right in front me without any problem."
Cons: "Horrible Terrible airline Tap"
Pros: "Seats were Comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding took longer than expected. Flight was delayed then was delayed a second time once everyone was boarded. Smaller plane than the usual TAP planes, but okay flight."
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."
Cons: "They had us inside the airplane for 1.5 hours. We understand there was a bad weather but we could get on board when they are ready to depart. It is not nice to be 1.5 hours plus 8 hours traveling"
Pros: "Excelent fly! No deley! Excelent crew! Good food!"
Cons: "Food is horrible and the airplane la are very old."
Pros: "2 meals, headphones, blanket and pillow all included. Flight was good - but being hit with surprise bag fees was not appreciated. (Was not notified at the time of booking)"
Cons: "Was charged $92 USD per checked bag at airport. Very displeased."
Pros: "No issues or service challenges I could think of. Friendly. Helpful."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard and not a lot of legroom. But. Not unexpected for the section/price. Shorter flight made this bearable. Interior looked dated. Though, it is an A319."
Pros: "Food was abundant and pretty good. I paid $91.95 US (think it was 75 euro) for the exit row and felt this was money well spent."
Cons: "They charged me $90 for my luggage. Several weeks or perhaps even months after I booked, I received an e-mail saying I had booked Super Cheap Economy or some such. It had a link to pay for 'additional services' but not luggage. At the time of booking, I checked and the price given was $35. So, I have protested the additional $55 with my CC company and will see what happens. BTW the luggage was not overweight. They turned off all the lights, including my personal reading lamp, so I could not read and had to just sit there doing nothing. That really blew big chunks. I only got two small glasses of wine."
Pros: "Great friendly service. Very clean and organized crew. Nice plane, great flight crew. Comfortable seats. Free ear pieces and drinks for international flights."
Pros: "The food and entertainment was good. We got into the plane ver quickly and we were seated towards the front"
Cons: "I have been flying for a while but it is so difficult to find out what fare class you have. the website is not helpful with bag check in information. $90 is way too much to check in a bag especially for an international flight the line at Lisbon for passports is way too long"
Pros: "The check in was smooth and boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had problems with TAP up front related to baggage fares and them keeping the $85 I paid for my son who is 2 meters tall to be in an exit row and then assigned to a different seat. He was miserable for almost seven hours."
Pros: "Modern appointed plane with places for technology and charging points"
Cons: "Ground staff insisted carry on bags were checked in and implied this was mandatory and I complied only to discover later that majority were allowed to ignore this. Also plane was late"
Cons: "As I keep metioning....you guys need to be more generous with the Victoria program. I fly you guys a minimum of 7 or 8 times a year, plus numerous partner flights, and what do I get? no free upgrades, 60,000 miles to become gold etc etc"
Pros: "The crew were kind and considerate."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever experienced. There was an incessant, loud high-pitched buzzing noise for the entire duration of the flight (we were seated in the very back row so it was particularly loud for us, but others further up said it was bad for them too). Also, we had straight turbulence for over two hours. I've never gotten sick on a plane before, and my husband never gets motion sickness, but we both threw up (and I think several others did, too). I don't blame the crew for any of this, as I know most, if not all, of it was out of their control. However, I would be very nervous to flight TAP again due to this experience."
Pros: "They were in such a bad mood!"
Cons: "The captain had fasten seatbelt on because of turbulence. As soon as it came off the crew insisted on doing the service instead of waiting for desperate people to use the restroom. They made everyone sit back down so they could serve sandwiches and drinks. There was plenty of time and they should have waited. The only time the crew smiled was when the flight was over"
Cons: "This airline is not notoriously delayed but has a penchant for losing luggage. Within 2 weeks they managed to lose my luggage twice and that on totally unrelated trips! Booooh."
Pros: "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."
Pros: "Great flight, cordial, good food (yes, it's possible), good entertainment !"
Cons: "Boarding process at the gate can be improved."
Pros: "It is comparatively inexpensive for business class."
Cons: "You get what you pay for! Boarding was very disorganized. Lot of standing around for no good reason. Food and drink service was mediocre -- they ran out of stuff."
Cons: "The sizing device is much smaller than it needs to be for carry on roller bags. My bag was forced to be checked by the ground crew on this Tap flight. My bag is a normal sized carry on bag that has always fit on all flights. There was plenty of space on the aircraft for it. The ground crew also let others on with larger bags so they dont even apply their policy in a consistent manner. I will do my best to avoid TAP from now on."
Pros: "Complimentary beverages and snacks. Understandable English from the crew about the flight information"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Some staff were helpful"
Cons: "To start off our trip we weren't allowed to get on the plane until an hour after our boarding time. After we were allowed on, the air conditioning was not working and continued to sit on the tarmac not even leaving our terminal for another two hours. Within this two hours there were many elderly people asking for help and one specific gentleman whom was in his late 70s, informed the people around him that he had a pacemaker was pleading to get some air conditioning to the point where 6 people on the airplane were fanning him off. It was 90 degrees in the airplane and we had been sitting in the plane without any help even pleading with the attendents to let the elderly off so they did not pass out. Once we reached the 2 hour mark without any ac the gentleman in his late 70s was beginning to lose consciousness and many people had to call the emergency services, and the crew on flight TP214, tried to tell us everything was fine while the plane was pulling away from the terminal ... as they were giving the man oxygen, even though the elderly gentleman had lost the ability to communicate verbally and was about to pass out. They had to pull the plane back off the tarmac fully delaying us 3 hours in the process making us miss our other two flights. Once we were finally in the air for the 6 hour flight our entertainment system was not working so we were left to twiddle our thumbs for the remainder of the trip. It really ruined what seemed to be an exciting trip and I highly doubt we would ever take TAP Portugal ever again or recommend it to anyone no matter the price."
Pros: "Nice refreshments, friendly attendants"
Cons: "It took a very long time to check in and board."
Cons: "They wouldn't let us on our flight when we got the 45 minutes before our flight. It was horrible."
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."
