Cons: "Crew could have been more friendly."
Cons: "The flight from Washington DC to Istanbul was very comfortable but the flight from Istanbul to Lahore was very uncomfortable. It was not worth the money. Turkish air line should use better And newer airplanes between Istanbul and Lahore"
Pros: "The food was great, customer service also good and price is Afordable"
Pros: "Onboard the flight service was fine."
Cons: "The crew at check-in & at boarding checked me in to fly to Tel-Aviv (transiting at Istanbul) without any comment on visa or passport at Washington D.C. In Istanbul, I was not allowed to board on the flight to Tel-Aviv. I was not allowed to stay in Istanbul. Crew (Erin Uler) who stopped me from boarding the flight said he would help, but disappeared. Othes kept sending me back and forth between transfer desk and sales desk with inconsistent advice every time. I had no way out, so decided I will fly to the closest European country. This was after I had been back and forth for 7 hours. I had to pay full for flight to Greece. I asked to be sent back to D.C. they could not even work that out. I have a return ticket to fly back to Washington D.C. with Turkish Airline on 1 Jan and they said they will need to re-ticket my paid return flight as well. Turkish airline crew did not would not help me fix my return flight back to D.C. They have asked me to contact the agent ( Kayak). Now I am stuck in Athens, a country I have never visited nor planned to. My tours & accommodation, all paid for in Israel, I have lost. I had a tour fully paid in Israel. I have no ticket to return back to D.C. even though I paid for ticket with cancellation insurance when I bought the ticket. The advice between Turkish crew who checked my passport (official) while I was flying out of D.C. vs the Turkish crew who stopped me from boarding was inconsistent. If I had been stopped in D.C. I wouldn't have had to face the events that followed. Now I have lost my tours, hotel in Israel. I had to pay extra for flight to Athens and I am paying for hotel and sundry in Athens while waiting for flight out. Turkish crew at Istanbul were not only unhelpful but rude and inconsistent. While I was waiting for 8 hours for a firm information, shouting matches between Turkish crew and customers went on at least a dozen times. Inconsistent information from Turkish staff has led me to be currently stuck in Athens. I am waiting for a way back to D.C. There should be a rule that fines an airline if they board people without accurate visa papers and they fail to check it. There should also be a fine to the airline if they stop people from boarding at a transit airport leaving passanger stranded with nowhere to go or return. I ask this issue to be looked at, as I am currently stuck in Athens. I need a ticket to go back to D.C."
Pros: "Nothing. I guess the fact that I made it to Israel?"
Cons: "Your incompetent agents messed up my reservation multiple times. They called my home and emailed asking for a payment, even though my client bought the ticket for me. Then, when I was checking in I realized my name was wrong even though my client has a document that proves she typed the right name. Finally, and AGAIN KAYAK, I arrive at the airport and Turkish Air says the ticket is booked but not ticked. So I had to jump on a 30min wait over the phone trying to solve issue after issue. Never doing business again with Kayak."
Pros: "The crew were all very polite and friendly."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Service was great, very polite crew. The food was so far the best comparing with other airlines I flew with. Planes were clean."
Cons: "The flight arrived with delay in Istanbul. The connecting flight was delayed as well. Hopefully I won’t experience that on the way back. One of the passengers said that flights are always delayed when arriving to Istanbul waiting for gates."
Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."
Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were especially cramped and tight and leg room was uncomfortable and I am a short person."
Cons: "Late into the flight there appeared to be a medical emergency taking place just a few rows ahead of me. No announcement was made; it was as though we were expected to ignore the situation. But with the lights in the cabin turned on, a small crowd gathered, and the passenger being vocal in his distress .. . a brief announcement would have been nice: Situation under control, no need to worry, flight will continue as scheduled. The passenger had a relapse a few hours later - again no acknowledgement from the crew to reassure those of us who could hear his cries of distress."
Pros: "Excellent service, food, and entertainment options!"
Pros: "Excellent service with comfort"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "The food and entertainment were okay."
Cons: "The staff was rude. The entertainment consoles didn’t work well."
Pros: "We travel with our 18 month son and the crew was really Profesional, they gave us little souvenirs for my son, the food was delicious, free alcoholic drinks, they were over my expectations. I definitely will fly again with them."
Cons: "They are telling me because I booked with Kayak through PriceLine or vice versa they will not give me any hotel for my 14 hours lay over."
Pros: "I liked the food and the staff were very friendly"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "The middle seat was cramped."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent!"
Cons: "The comfort level for that long of a flight was very poor. Seats are way too close together. There is no knee room from the seats at the front at all. People operating their video monitor is a disturbing fact for the passengers who sits in front of them."
Pros: "The staff, as usual, were fantastic. They handled the screaming babies well. Likewise, the movie selection was decent."
Cons: "On both meals they ran out of one meal option so no choice was available. The bathrooms got pretty got pretty gross towards the end of the flight."
Pros: "Offered us a free meal for the poor service."
Cons: "Old, uncomfortable plane. Took off 30-40 minutes late. Poor quality food. Circled Istanbul airport for 15 minutes without any communication. Flight arrived late, but no info. on connecting flights provided. At least eight passengers ran through the Istanbul airport to catch the connecting flight to Rome and, despite the fact that the plane was still at the gate, the gate staff person would not allow any of us on the flight. Customer service staff were unhelpful and had a negative attitude. The transfer were helpful."
Cons: "Seats were horrible - I've never been so uncomfortable on an international flight. Also, seat was broken and I couldn't push it back for sleeping. Flight attendant tried to help be but seat was broken"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, the hours from Washington to Instanbul were perfect for night sleeping, the seats were comfortabl enough for sleeping, I didn't eat the late night dinner but the breakfast was good."
Pros: "Service was exceelent and all crew staff were professional and friendly and courteous."
Cons: "We end up spending almost 1,200 use extra to reach Washington and return to Yaounde."
Pros: "The entertainment and food choices are great, and staff is kind and ready to help."
Cons: "The line to check in & get our boarding passes was ridiculously long -- it took us about an hour of just waiting in line before even getting to security."
Cons: "the employees at the check in booth were so rude and unhelpful. I needed a wheelchair because I had a very bad backache, but they refused to help me and they made me wait standing up in line for over 2 hours. It was a very painful experience."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines remains my favorite - boarding process is organized, seats are comfortable, food is good, and crew is friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Honestly, not very much. The Entertainment system kind of worked, although the touch screen barely worked, and the movie selection was mediocre."
Cons: "Very old plane, with barely any leg room, poorly functioning seats that didn't recline--and when others recline, I couldn't even open my tray table. The crew was incredibly rude and generally unhappy to help--a consistent show of attitude, as if WE were a pain to service, when just asking for water/tea because they kept skipping us! The food also was really bad, nothing like it used to be. By far the worst Turkish Airlines experience I've had, and I may reconsider booking in the future."
Pros: "Easy checking reasonable wait."
Pros: "I liked the food and the Entertainment on board. The board crew was friendly and had always a smile."
Cons: "The crew wasn't able to speak in German, even though they spoke perfect English."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment center and options. Loved the frequency of beverage service. The slippers and eye cover for sleeping."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Pros: "In-flight service puts US-based airlines very much in the shade - welcome on board, attentiveness, food and drinks."
Cons: "Chaotic check-in process."
Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "I loved the bendable headrests. Olives and cheeses are different airplane food and really nice. Plentiful blankets and pillows."
Cons: "They didn't have any child-sized headphones available for my daughter."
Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Pros: "The company gave us a hotel for the layover."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been on. I love flights that give you a hot towel when you arrive, so that was a big plus in my book. The flight stewards were so helpful both on and off the flight. The food was delicious. Movie selections were freat ad well."
Pros: "Liked the hot towel, good service and gift bag of toiletries - unique among airlines for Economy passengers."
Pros: "Food was great as well as entertaiment."
Cons: "I'm 6.2 There is no leg room for tall people. It was very uncomfortble 10 hours red eye flight. Crew was just ok."
Pros: "The food was good, as was the service."
Cons: "Delays, both at Dulles, as well as in Istanbul."
Pros: "Other than what I've mentioned below, everything was great."
Cons: "It was a pretty physically uncomfortable flight. My seat wouldn't recline even a tiny bit and it was a 9+ hour flight. The flight attendant tried to help but was unable to get it to move either."
Pros: "Care and attention the flight attendance showed."
Pros: "Had a one hour delay without justification,but ended up landing in Douala first before Yaounde. Arrived at 4:30 am instead of 12:005am. Lost my bag up till now not seen."
Cons: "The crew, was rude to passengers with kids"
Pros: "The attendants were courteous and proficient. Even when they were being elbowed as they walked past, smiling and friendly. I will try to fly Turkish again."
Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines
Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Layover time"
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Pros: "Despite being a short flight, they gave food"
Cons: "Nothing. All ok"
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Cons: "Thé qualité officielle the images"
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "The schedule and timing"
Cons: "The airport, some of the crew, the aircraft seats, the entertainment system"
Cons: "There was no entertainment available."
Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and welcoming!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The snacks that were handed out prior to landing were not very good and it looked as though a lot of people in our section felt the same way. Also, there were a lot of empty seats in the comfort and premium sections, but non of our gold medallions were offered an upgrade."
Cons: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."
Pros: "Liked the transfer"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "Their evacution video is interesting"
Cons: "The aircraft is a bit old and somehow the flight crew didn’t offer me the full menu as the menu describe. First time encounter that in a business class"
Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"
Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"
Pros: "The airbus 380 was great and the staff very nice"
Cons: "Too mych bad smells after a few hours"
Pros: "On time after latish start"
Cons: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"
Cons: "Disappointed to get delayed due to control tower issues at CdG. Landed more than 30 mins late in London"
Pros: "Staff was responsive, effective and pleasant; Nice selection of digestifs too. Food was decent and, in airline level, even good."
Cons: "The audio system is outdated with unreliable touch-screen that makes it frustrating to navigate."
Pros: "The Crew was the only thing that stuck out. Associates had Way more patience than i."
Cons: "Late takeoff, priority seating happens same time as general boarding, two pieces of lost luggage"
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice to me. TV was very good. space was enough ."
Cons: "We had to pay for wi fi."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
Cons: "Poor communication. Did not know was airfrance the booking was completed with Austria airline. In the ticket was not the information. Also, airfrance could not find me in their systems I was late to board the plane. Terrible messy and confusing time for me."
Pros: "cookies were great"
Cons: "we paid for two seats together (one aisle and one middle) an exit row with extra legroom from paris to LA. but when we got to Prague they had one of us in the middle seat in the exit row and the other in a completely different part of the plane, also a middle row. The folks in Prague couldn't fix this, they moved one ticket to a different exit row, not together, different part of the plane. In Paris, but ONLY after I located my receipt on my phone, they moved us to the seats we had paid for."
Pros: "Super comfortable even in coach (upstairs). I was impressed with service and quantity and quality of food. Would be pleased to fly them again."
Cons: "Seat did not recline as much as normal aircraft."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
The flight crew was very attentive and nice, but the ground crew sadly wasn’t, the overall experience is I WOULD NOT, again NOT TRAVEL with TAP Portugal… We where supposed to board at 11am and started at 11:40 with minimum to non-coordination…
Pros: "Seats are way more comfortable than other flight companies"
Cons: "Crew could have been more patient"
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."
Cons: "Transfer time in Lisbon"
Pros: "Price. Service and food offered in the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process: everyone crowds into the line without regard of the grouping."
Pros: "Me gusto el trato de las azafatas y la comida estuvo muy buena!!"

Pros: "Seats and snack"
Cons: "No delay in departure"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was very professional and helpful, even with other passengers that weren’t very courteous."
Cons: "There was only one person checking people in, which was not enough to move things along. There was also confusion over whether bags had to be checked or not, with one person giving us tags but then no one looking at the tags prior to boarding. The whole check in process seemed poorly organized."
Pros: "The food served was really good (bacalhau), and the crew very friendly."
Cons: "The boarding in Lisbon was a total disaster: no control of lines, unprepared staff, very confusing and slow. The airplane was very uncomfortable: very small seats, almost no reclining of chairs, very warm inside. Horrible flight!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with nice pillow and blanket"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and slow."
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 boarding process was awful! The airport itself is difficult to maneuver in. No information provided regarding the flight. Airport security and police very very rude!"
Pros: "Really nice crew, good food and wine, very attentive and accommodating. I’m used to flying spirit and Norwegian and this was a huge upgrade, though there’s not much in flight entertainment. Definitely good and cheap. Will fly again."
Cons: "The long delay, more than 1.5 hours."
Cons: "late flight lost my connection"
Cons: "The fact that people in coach class up to rows 28 as 2 choices of food and from row 29 and up have no choice we have to eat what they have twice to me"
Cons: "75 euros per bag on an international flight is robbery. I was also on my honeymoon, which I know shouldn't guarantee anything, but wow did it leave a bad impression, particularly when I hear stories of free upgrades all the time and I couldn't even get a free bag."
Cons: "Two flights today. Both over an hour delayed."
Pros: "Friendliness of ground and cabin crew"
Cons: "2 hour delay, but nobody at Manchester Airport Kept us indormend. Food on aircraft was poor (basically a coleslaw sandwich). Long drive from plane to terminal. Bags took forever to come"
Cons: "The flight was oversold and we got bumped off with 20 other passengers even though we had all booked months in advance. I’m still not in Marrakech, now a flight to New Jersey. I’m so sad and it’s my wedding anniversary."
Pros: "Staff courteous compared to our previous TAP FLIGHT"
Cons: "Al llegar al counter me dicen que la maleta no está incluida, yo quisiera saber quien viaja sin maleta? Así que tuve que pagar adicional $90 por una sola maleta y tengo que pagar también al regreso, me siento robado y estafado por Tap Portugal"
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."
Pros: "Nice food"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, no entertainment"
Pros: "First class accommodation was great! We had about a 3-hour flight and would have appreciated a blanket, pillow and a headset."
Cons: "I didn't like that first class was checked in first at the counter. But everyone rode on the same bus and disembarked at the same time so first class didn't really board the plane first. Some of the TAP counter employees were very unhelpful & actually dismissive. We had gate 19 and there was no sign of activity when it was time to board. When asked some counter employees, they couldn't care less. You should post something at the gate assigned about a gate change or delay. A lot of passengers were confused and uninformed."
Pros: "Despite the constant delays, overbookings, and other mediocre treatment of the passengers the crew and TAP personnel remained friendly"
Cons: "Flights constantly delayed, overbooked flight without a solution, overbooked hotel... Arrived at destination (Bru) 24h after arriving at airport in Faro. Will avoid TAP at all costs."
Pros: "I got to London"
Cons: "9 hour delay"
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: "People were very nice that worked on the flight. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seats were hard as a rock"
Cons: "5 hrs delay and missed all connecting flights. Airline initially rescheduled flight 2 days later. Called Kayak and got no support. Kayak agent told us to keep pushing the airline. After 2 hrs of "working" with the airline, we were able to fly into Madrid the following day. Had to spend extra money for hotel room and car rental in Madrid because our final destination was Sevilla. Will never work with Azores or Kayak again. BTW, did we mention that while "working" with Azores to reschedule flight, we were booked to fly into an island off of Africa. Luckily, we followed up online with the changed itinerary."
Pros: "Both check ins (to and from Boston) the staff were rude. No information, just alot of speaking Portuguese to other staffers while my family and I stood there. The flight and crew were good, clean, kind and efficient."
Cons: "There was a strike in Lisbon. Thousands of people trying to go through security and four people working the booths. Plus NO information. Just chaos, bad feelings and HOURS of standing in lines. Stressful. Will NEVER go to Lisbon again."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, fast and efficient. Crew were friendly and welcoming. Complimentary snacks were welcome and nice."
Pros: "Food is worst I ever had in business class in 15 years of frequent flying. Worse than even many economy classes. Worse than many shirt hauls. Service is poor. Seats are super old. Only upside: on time"
Cons: "Nothing to like here except timeliness"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Checking in luggage took an absurdly long time"
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: "The plane was new, clean, and spacious. The staff was mostly helpful and friendly,"
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment or drink/food."
Pros: "Crew, plane, service."
Cons: "Terribly long line in Lisbon airport to check in."
Pros: "Lucky, had a seat in the front row so had room for my knees. The crew, as always, fantastic. Polite, professional, sense of humor."
Pros: "Stay away from TAP. I wish the people at the counter were just rude - they were tormenting us and lying to me about my luggage. When they found out I insisted on not checking my bag, they told me they would "keep it" in the meantime. Turned out they went ahead and threw the bag onto the plane. We ended up having to go find it at lost and found. They initially told me it was going to only take 5-10 mins to retrieve my luggage, but then 40 mins passed and still nothing. My poor mom had to wait by the empty belt - and boarding started and the luggage still wasn't there. They forced us to pay 35 euros (it's principle, not the money) when their policy said nothing about it when I booked it on the website. My mom was in tears and I had the worst few hours of my life. TAP - you are disgusting. It takes a lot for me to be upset but you really did everything out of your way to make us suffer. Even told us we might have to miss our flight. You put a huge dent on my trip."
Cons: "Please see above."
Cons: "Terrible TAP service. Missed my flight to no fault of my own and I was made to buy a new ticket. No changrs, no partial refund, couldn't even use my return ticket which I had to rebook too. Nice customer service !!!"
Pros: "Easy check in and bag handling"
Cons: "Fact that was not clear I would have to pay to check bags."
Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and helpful. Food very nice -- unusual mix of dishes for airlines!"
Cons: "I missed my flight that day i was not happy at all"
Cons: "Plane was many hours late. Departure time not on terminal screen. Extreeeme delay on shuttle from United terminal. Sidewalk closed for construction. TSA Prechk not on boarding pass printout. No shuttle behind security from Term B to Term A. Plane left earlier than announced on notification apps. DCA website=6:25pm Final call at 5:47pm only word DELAY on term screen with 4:10time."
Pros: "On time; efficient; great aircraft."
Cons: "A child threw up in flight behind my wife and the crew let the parents clean it up. I thought the crew should have been more proactive."
Pros: "everything went by fast, a lot of turbulence but the pilot kept us in check the entire time."
Pros: "That we survived and finally got our luggage the day after we arrived."
Cons: "1) That we went to Toronto, but our luggage went to Montreal. 2) That my wife had to stay up the whole night calling everyone in their call center to find out what happened to our luggage. 3) We were charged for selecting our seats in the flight reservation process. 4) We were misdirected by an Air Canada rep for our return flight and this caused us to miss our connecting flight as well. 5) We ended up spending more than 12 hours at the airport for flying from Toronto to Washington DC."
Pros: "The AC in-flight staff are always very nice. It was a pleasant flight"
Cons: "The aircraft was so small there was not enough room for even most standard size carry-ons. The crew were not patient and gave passengers attitude for trying to bring their carry-ons onboard. On the way back from Toronto, we were sitting on the runway for more than one hour waiting for "de-icing". If this is a recurring thing, why not time the arrivals and departures better to avoid making people sit there, disconnected from everything and waiting? Also the screen on my "entertainment center" was broken but thankfully I had my own book to read. Air Canada has not had the most welcoming crew or most up to date fleet in my experience; I fly with them mostly because of their cheap fares. I guess "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch"."
Pros: "I usually have a smooth experience with Air Canada. Haven't had any problems on board. Unfortunately I had a bad experience with my baggage."
Cons: "The check-in person said my baggage (oversized, and a keyboard) would make it through to my final destination even though I had another flight on a separate reservation. I specifically asked because I wanted to know if I needed to pick it up when I landed after the first leg in Toronto. He said I'd only have to go through customs and my bag will make it all the way home to Vancouver. Well, I felt weird about it and when I got off in Toronto I noticed that my baggage receipt said Toronto on it (not Vancouver). I decided to forego the connections gate because I was unsure. Lucky that I did because lo and behold, my keyboard bag was waiting for me at baggage claim. Had I trusted the check-in guy, I would've possibly lost over $1000 worth of equipment. That's not something that can easily be forgiven."
Pros: "Crew very friendly. In-flight refreshments & Entertainment provided."
Cons: "Cramp seats."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Cons: "Our luggage didn't scan in the system so we couldn't go to the gate until it was found & scanned in the system. Fortunately we were early so this wasn't an issue but kept us waiting at "step 2" until an actual photo could be found. We also had a delay after boarding while they changed a tire. It all worked out ok."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "the crew are super friendly. even on a little plane from DC-Toronto they had entertainment options which i wouldn't have expected. boarded quickly and landed on time. nobody bats an eye at my wife's weird beverage requests."
Cons: "the cabin of the plane on the return flight didn't have any air conditioning running during boarding and it was uncomfortably hot because it was about 85F outside. the crew only bothered to inform us of the issue when a poor hungover guy behind me asked about it because he was suffering... as were we all. plane didn't get comfortable until over 30 minutes in, at which point we were beginning our descent anyway."
Pros: "Ludovic was fantastic!"
Cons: "charged me for my bags; employees were surly."
Cons: "The temperature fluctuated like crazy. Upon entering it was fire hot. Then became ice cold then fire hot again. It felt like there was something wrong with the plane. The plane also lqasnt cleaned before we boarded. It just landed with another flight then we boarded."
Cons: "I could not travel due to the fact that Im pregnant and it is of really high risk and the airline did not help me. I lost my money and could not even get a credit to travel later."
Cons: "The plane was sitting at the gate for about an hour before we boarded (for a flight delayed by over an hour). Yet Air Canada didn't bother to go through the cabin and pick up garbage left in seat back pockets. The water in the washroom didn't work."
Pros: "Crew on the flight were very patient, understanding and friendly. Ground staff were the exact opposite. Agitated, temperamental and unwilling to help or find solutions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily the crews fault. But frustrating as our flight both to and from Washington was delayed both ways."
Cons: "Terrible flight. I should have driven instead. Flight was suppose to land at 12:30pm but due to computer malfunction we landed at 7pm."
Pros: "It was a good experience flying on Air Canada. The flight was on schedule, smooth flight, flight attendants were friendly."
Pros: "Love these guys. Moved a whiny baby away to a another row ;)"
Pros: "We got to destinations safely"
Cons: "I was worried that we won't make it to the land. I guess it was windy, but the plane was shaking too much"
Pros: "I loved the whole experience. The food was decent and the flight attendants were great and accommodated me with all my necessities. I also enjoyed the entertainment that was accessible on our personal screens and the entire flight was smooth."
Pros: "flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not of good quality, had too much spice and salt. Fruit was a little too hard to cut. Toilets trash was not cleaned from previous flight. She Asian movies were same as in the previous flight. Need to provide more choices on SE Asian movies."
Pros: "Nice and relaxing."
Pros: "Had screens and movies available. Crew was nice and flight wasn't overly packed."
Pros: "nothing particularly spectacular. The entertainment on the place is much better than most (since most don't have it) for such short flights."
Cons: "The place was delayed for over an hour for a 'maintenance issue' - what I dislike is lack of information being shared from the plane to people at the gate. Also when we are delayed for the airlines fault - customers should be given something - anything - a small voucher, or even a drink ect., this is not a weather issue. I think airlines have too much power making most terrible at customer service - air Canada is one of the worst ones."
Pros: "I am glad to have this opportunity to express what I was thinking when I got off the plane on Sunday. That was one of the best flights I have ever had. The flight was so smooth, take off, during flight and landing. Koodoo sto our captin! Also, I noticed the sir quality was great. I'm didn't feel dry or irritated by the sir as can sometimes happen. The crew were pleasant and I liked my seat. Hope the flight back is as enjoyable."
Cons: "Nothing of import."
Pros: "Excellent service on board, and excellent neighbor passengers"
Cons: "Being unable to check in on line and being assigned a middle seat."
Pros: "Prompt and friendly service, comfortable and clean."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely and on time."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Seriously? No TVs for an international flight?? They should at least tell you that in advance so you can download movies and bring your chargers. We didn't get drink service until about 2 hours into the flight. Terrible. Food was boring and bad. Finally- we had to pay for wine and beer. On a $1000 flight? I have traveled internationally at least 15 times and this was by far the worst flight yet."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Terrible service."
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't as friendly or willing to accomodate"
Pros: "We got in a little early. More room than many in regular economy. All employees encountered pleasant and competent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind other than the normal air travel has led of security."
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Had a technical difficulties 3 times in a row. Had to be cancelled and put on the next day and again same thing over and over. So missed all my connections. Cut short my vacation. Will never flight air Canada again."
Cons: "I missed this flight due to my other flight being late."
Cons: "Ran out of salmon for meal"
Pros: "Great crew. Gracious and helpful."
Cons: "Kayak was a nightmare to work with."
Cons: "Not giving us an update on why the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Haneda is a beautiful airport and the airline staff there were great, as service generally is in Japan."
Cons: "need to devise a better boarding process--small number of zone 1 and 2 passengers, then massses in 3, 4, and 5. More zones or more thought into how to improve customer experience for all."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I had to rerouted through New York and missed connecting flights"
Pros: "Super polite crew"
Pros: "I liked the flight coming back. The plane was very big and there was not many seats taken so the space was more than enough. Food was good."
Cons: "The employees were great on the plane but the boarding people didn't smile and was not able to help us out adequately."
Pros: "Food and service."
Pros: "As thecflt time was short, i cannot say much but the leg room was ok."
Pros: "Everything went well including the smoothness of the flight."
Pros: "The flight was canceled very close to departure time and I was bumped to a flight leaving five hours later. Missed my train connection in Montreal and had to rent a car and drive to Quebec. Since I go to Canada only rarely, I ended up essentially losing the money I spent for train fare and having to pay another $145 for the rental car. Got to Quebec at 11:30 p.m. instead of 3:55 p.m. Not happy."
Pros: "1) Skycap service for boarding at Reagan National was exceptional. I requested wheelchair assistance for this return flight and the attendant gave 100% service, getting me through security and on to the boarding gate lounge area in short order. He was very pleasant and very helpful. 2) The pilots did a good job of flying, The flight was smooth as was the landing. We left Reagan a few minutes late but arrived at Pearson 16 minutes early. I liked that!"
Cons: "1) I paid extra money for a "preferred seat" because my recent hip replacement surgery required that I have ample leg room while sitting. Leg room for the first row econonomy seat I got was barely adequate. I felt cheated out of the $15 I paid for the seat (which should have been complimentary, in my opinion 2) Food service was terrible. For a 1 o'clock flight, having to get to the airport 2-3 hours ahead of departure, meant that I was in need of some serious food, not the tiny package of pretzels and the cup of tea I got. Even a couple of cookies or a muffin would have been a better offering. 3) The wheelchair assistance that I requested did not materialize for me on arrival at Pearson. I felt so cramped from sitting that I was eager to get up and try to walk, no matter how slowly, the distance to Customs and through to the exit gate to wait for my ride home. That's what I did, and I never saw a wheelchair attendant coming with a wheelchair as I exited. That is poor service! I am comparing this to the excellent service I got with American Airlines on the first leg of my trip from Toronto to DC."
Cons: "Excellent service and experience and the reason I always fly United!"
Cons: "The Boeing 737-800 did NOT have enough leg room for me. My first flight to Houston was very uncomfortable, even with an aisle seat. If I can, I will avoid this plane when booking future flights."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flights were smooth. Good beverages and snacks."
Cons: "The seats have no leg space."
Pros: "Easy finding deals"
Cons: "Better interface"
Cons: "Had to wait on the runway for one hour to get a gate upon arrival. Should not have departed early and told passengers that there would be a gate available, only to have to wait and circle around several times waiting for a gate."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Should have demarcations for groups as they are boarding. A rude costumer with his wife who’s group was obviously not was called to board the airplane( I heard him say we’ll jus go with this group since we are next) purposefully cuts me off and was rude and obnoxious about it."
Pros: "I sat on the aisle. There is no room especially if you put your bag under the seat in front of you. I got hit 2x as the flight attendants moved the cart down the aisle. You can't lean back. I was fortunate to be able to place my coat in the overhead bin which is usually overcrowded."
Cons: "If the baggsge fee was less onerous more people would check bags and make boarding and deplaning faster. For God's sake give people more room between seats. Board people in the back first to spee the process. First window and aisles last. This would improve on time departures."
Pros: "This was a horrible experience from the onsite until the landing."
Cons: "Better communication from the beginning and feedback about what was actually going on would have been helpful."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats were far from comfortable."
Cons: "The seats were so close together and did not recline to a comfortable position at all and to be a flight over 2 hours is just plain ridiculous! I will definitely be putting United on my list with Spirit from now on. Choosing either of them for such discomfort versus price savings is not worth it!"
Pros: "Smart way they did boarding kept a bunch of people from crowding around the gate. Maple snacks on flight were tasty."
Cons: "Really cramped seating."
Cons: "Delays, seat assignment changed, the food"
Pros: "The on-time arrival"
Cons: "Having to check our bags due to lack of overhead space which was announced before anyone boarded the aircraft. Had they provided our bags to us when we exited the plane, or told us in advance that there would be no space and they would be offering free bag check, that would have mitigated the situation. Instead they wait till the last minute costing us valuable time. In the future, they should pay us the 25 dollar bag fee when they arbitrarily make this decision."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, everything else very standard"
Cons: "Seats are horribly uncomfortable and hardly recline, WiFi did not work most of the time even though I paid $12 for it. Overall United is highly unimpressive these days"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, i was stuck in the airport for hours, i missed my meeting because of the first flight. I understand one flight being delayed but two? Are all of your flights like this? Because if so, i cannot rely on united Airlines"
Pros: "Sidney was extra kind and thoughtful. Pilot made a great landing."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "Outstanding that United Airlines finally has allowed for complimentary use of built-in entertainment system; i.e. Direct TV without charging passengers. That is good business sense - congratulations on a good PR decision. Haven't complimented UA in long time, but this is about time to say "thanks!""
Pros: "I slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Middle seats are the worst and why are they so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent United customer service, Reagan National, ease of check-in"
Cons: "The aircraft was older, but United is in the process of renewing their fleet."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful!"
Cons: "Not enough options for people with celiac."
Pros: "Nice, friendly flight attendant, smooth flight once we got in the air"
Cons: "Delays. Some people missed connections. I was fortunate my second plane was delayed, else I would have missed mine too"
Pros: "Quick and departure on time"
Pros: "On time and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Really old plane, was freezing during the whole flight."
Pros: "We were in first class and the internet was not working except for the last hour of the flight. Plus I and my wife were both charged $20 each which should have provided access for the entire5 1/2 hr trip."
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "My one stop flight was delayed in both departures While checking in online I changed my seat to row 15C, and when checked prior to boarding, the change was not done and had to travel in row 39C The aisle space is too small, so every person coming to the bathroom pushed me, also the fly attendants while pulling the food cart. The leg room was too small. There were no sweet cookies within the snacks. Fly attendants did their work, but were not particularly pleasing."
Cons: "We didn't have seats assigned and the gate attendent didn't take the time to tell any of the 20 of us waiting for 15-20 mins to speak to a gate agent what was going on until AFTER she boarded the rest of the plane. When asked what was going on she responded "excuse me, I'll get to you when I get to you and thanks for your 'non attitude'" to the woman who asked her if she had any plans to greet us or even ackwnowledge us. Then the flight attendants became flustered as they realized they separated a 5 year old child and his father and sat the child in the emergency seat. When several of us attempted to help they were rude so when I put my headphones in to pass the time and didn't hear the woman ask if I was willing to sit in the emergency isle she snidely said "there's always one millenial not paying attention." Ummm.... I had my eyes closed and was listening to my music since they clearly wanted us to mind our own business and NOT try to help the father (meanwhile all of us strangers were trying to figure out how to rearrange in order to help). The only reason entertainment gets a 2 is bc I had good conversation with the passenger next to me, not because of anything United did. Really unbelievable that they continue to operate this way and treat PAYING customers like this. It's sad actually."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Original flight booked was for 1:30. Week before changes to 5:30. Then 6:30. Arrive at the airport and flights delayed to 7. Then 730. 8. 830 etc etc etc til 11. No explanation. No food tickets. Rude responses like this gem: pointed out how long I was waiting with no word --> told by a united employee that he's been there since 7am. I point out he's bad to be there. He says he's not. I guess a united volunteer then? Then only handed out water since 'it's a short flight'. Useless."
Cons: "Always quality service, food and plane! My fav!"
Cons: "There was a lack of information the whole trip. We couldn't hear the announcements of the crew or pilot so we didn't know what was going on. When. The landing gear malfunctioned it took a very long time to hear what was going on. Then, upon deplaning, there was only one single gate agent waiting to help the flight. Very poor service!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the heart warming and friendlyness of the pilot."
Cons: "The running nose sneezing person sitting next to me."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delay, but not airline'S fault."
Pros: "Plane side checked bags. Kind flight crew."
Cons: "Perfect weather. Delayed an hour."
Pros: "The flight arrived"
Cons: "United claimed the flight was delayed due to weather but two other flights to Houston were able to leave on time and no other United flights appeared to have been delayed. No apologies, no compensation, did not even give free access to wifi during flight."
Pros: "I liked that it was a short flight."
Cons: "The seating space mostly. And the long layovers and continual delays I experienced from Friday and Sunday. The flight attendant wasn't very pleasant or welcoming."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times which meant I would miss my connecting flight. Rebooking was challenging and took over an hour. After it was supposedly rebooked on another airline, I couldn't check in because it wasn't booked correctly. Now sitting in airport for the last 10 hours and have another 5 hours until my flight. Not happy."
Cons: "they couldnt find the pilot. they said they didnt have enough crew"
Pros: "United comfortable classy convenient. Ordered on time staff was friendly beverages are free and plenty of legroom thank you I will book again"
Cons: "Plane was late and we almost missed our connection in Newark"
Pros: "United service is awful."
Cons: "Wi-fi didn't work (3rd flight this trip). Ran out of cheese plate in the 2nd row... Really? Late departure caused missed connection. Then the customer service agents - if you can call them that -- were downright pathetic, absolutely no effort to deal with the crowds of people who needed help. Finally had to call UA while in line and got booked on another connecting flight to a connecting flight :( and they freaking gave me the wrong gate!"
Pros: "Timely departure. No delay."
Cons: "Seats were small. No wifi on this flight."
Pros: "Susan Smith at check in counter Reagan National was very helpful, kind and service-oriented. I hope you recognize the gem you have."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and gate agents appeared tired, agitated, and unhelpful."
Pros: "Evening flight. Crew wasn't the nicest but they were professional nonetheless. Flight itself was smooth but a bit of a bumpy landing (I think it was a bit windy so not surprised. It is Ch). Not the best flight but certainly not the worst either."
Cons: "DirecTV in-flight entertainment. You pay or you're subjected to constant ads and/or snippets of shows. I'd rather watch one free movie that I can't choose rather than pay to watch bad TV."
Cons: "A 6:30 pm flight that leaves at 8:15? What is there to like?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, which caused me to run to catch my connection."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I had a window seat... at the way back. Also that I was at least offered snacks, or whatever was left because they ran out."
Cons: "They ran out of meals and snacks, both paid and free. We all pay a price, yet seats and class determine whether you will get your moneys worth. I guess the point is that I at least made it home."
Cons: "Very cold on flights, no blankets"
Cons: "entertainment system stopped working 1/2 way through flight."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"
