Pros: "Delta fo"
Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."

Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and caring. The food was great. Very enjoyable trip!!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent all around, really made the experience a pleasure. Also very helpful when I couldn't locate my wallet as I was preparing to deplane, both in terms of helping me look and explaining what I could do if it didn't turn up (eventually it did, before I disembarked)."

Cons: "you had to pay $35 ahead of time just to select your seats...they only allow 1 checked bag, half the flight was empty in eco plus but they still wanted you to pay to "upgrade", integration with UAL is cumbersome and difficult as you cant manage both legs of a UAL/LH flight from one carrier. Overall mediocre but hey - Cheap fares, you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Lost my luggage ., not happy"
Cons: "bad weather, not your fault"
Pros: "All round excellent services. Food is good, but I wish but I wished More chooses or selection."
Cons: "We were traveling 2 adults with 2 and 6 year olds. We were all seated on different rows and seats. We tried to fix it at the gate and we were given 2 seats next to each other and 2 behind each other...please train your staff to seat families together!!!"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."
Cons: "flight was late, check-in people were mean and angry to everyone, instead of serving the food straight away since the overnight flight was delaed and then quickly turning the lights off, they waited until 3 hours in to serve food, which meant they didnt turn the lights off until well into the night and only gave us a couple hours to sleep. there were no new movies on board except for batman vs. superman. food tasted weird even for airplane standards. pretty bad overall. i've had better experience with virgin, united, or air france."
Pros: "On time!!!!"
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
Pros: "I fly regularly between Germany and USA. Would rate this flight as the second best flight in recent years. Small details can make a difference."
Cons: "The breakfast that was served was not great. Blueberry muffin super sweet and canola bar with raisins.none odds which i would ever pick if I had any choice."
Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."

Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Pros: "When we fly Trans Atlantic, we always hope it will be with lufthansa! Sometimes they use united as a carrier and it us never as good as lufthansa!"
Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."
Pros: "Late departure, full flight but good overall."
Pros: "flight attendants were very nice, helpful, and accountable. I wish every flight had them on their crew."
Pros: "Great service, food, crew."
Cons: "Seats too small, very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We purchase extra leg room seats which turned out not to be available. The crew understood our frustration and upgraded us to premium economy. Many thanks!"
Pros: "I love the crew, the seats, the food was wonderful and the flight was the smoothest ever. Thanks"
Pros: "Boarding was again easy, directions were clear as to where I should sit. My only trouble with the crew was that announcements were sometimes too quiet to hear at all, which I hardly cared about anyway (seat belts, please). The movie selection was unexpectedly good, as was the music section. Books were meh."
Cons: "I was not comfortable after about four hours, my biggest problem being I had already been riding in an airplane for a total of six hours that day. Food was fine, but came with salt, which was nice. I don't expect a four course meal on an airplane, but I didn't eat with gusto. The headphones provided were lousy, but I just plugged in my own set."
Pros: "I was fortunate to have a complete row (3) seats for myself; the plane was new and in excellent condition. All the staff was courteous and helpful."
Pros: "Lufthansa's newest 747-8 airliner was quite the treat for international flight. 100% LED lights with subtle purple-blue mood lighting overnight looks pretty and mimics Virgin's design. Dozens of movies to choose from in addition to many more entertainmrnent options in the widescreen touchscreens. And actual silverware for food, even in economy. The addition of Premier Economy (wider and longer seats) copies the design from United's Economy Plus, at the expense of regular economy's legroom (I believe). Note: if you have noise canceling earphones or headphones like myself, get the 2-jack airline adapter. Lufthansa uses the proprietary dual-jack, at least in economy."
Cons: "Pasta dinner only had 1/8 piece tomato. Stick to the chicken."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"

Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "Great airline"
Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"

Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"
Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"

Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."

Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."

Cons: "I do wish passengers would sit until the seatbelt signs are off and not all jump up and open the over heard bins and drop things"
Pros: "Check-in at BWI could not have been nice/more courteous. Great flight and crew!"
Cons: "We love this BA flight out of BWI."
Pros: "Food was decent, crew lovely but 9 hours in a seat that was ridiculously narrow and tight left me less than delighted. And I’m a very average sized woman. I felt like a t-rex trying to eat my meal."
Cons: "See above for overal review."
Pros: "The check in process was easy and straightforward but we were in the front of the line--which was very long. The lady who checked us in was very nice and pleasant and she was there for boarding as well. This process was very smooth for us."
Cons: "No water available unless you paid for it --same true of coffee and they only take credit cards. Was not able to request seats early and ended up next to the bathroom and lots of people standing in my personal space and the smell is overwhelming--the chemical smell."
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Everything. Will never book AA/BA again. Ended up with 42 hours journey."
Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "Food standard has gone down. Crew needs to be increased as per passenage ratio Aircrafts need to be upgraded as to middle east aircrafts standard."
Pros: "In spite of delay caused by luggage to be taken of the aircraft, flight arrived to a Rome on time.captain kept us well informed of the reasons for delay. Boarding was done efficiently with care for people with children and elderly passangers."

Cons: "Las películas no se podían poner desde el inicio"
Pros: "Food was decent and it was nice to have all drinks included (but after the first one you had to go to the galley to get a drink)."
Cons: "Definitely an older plane with very narrow seats and very little legroom compared to other long haul flights that I have been on. They only delivered drinks once and then if you wanted any more you had to climb over people and go to the galley to obtaining yourself. Plane was also very warm so it was hard to get comfortable and there was not much airflow to cool you off."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled in the middle of the night "due to weather", however, every other flight took off that day from Gatwick without even a delay. British Airways offered nothing in return for a missed connection which cost me almost 1000$ in total and 2 missed days of work. Their customer service is horrendous and basically, they simply didn't care."
Pros: "Every flight was late. And then we missed a connection not because we landed late, but because they didn’t have a bridge crew. So we sat on the ground for 45 minutes awaiting a bridge crew. Invitee were re-booked on a new connection, but low and behold that was also late."
Cons: "Waiting 6 hrs"
Pros: "The power plug points in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Rude staff and service. Limited service for food. if you compare British Airways with other European airlines like SAS, Swiss, and Lufthansa; British has fallen far behind in quality and service."
Cons: "Rude staff, incompetent customer care"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. They had no confirmation of the booking even though it had been done a month earlier. Called the customer service and they kept directing me to go figure things out with the airport staff. It was a very frustrating experience. Took almost 4 hrs to confirm that the flight had been paid for."
Cons: "They could not see our flight from London to dallas so they would not let us get on the plane in Zurich."
Pros: "Professional pilots. Good flight."

Pros: "Food was OK"
Cons: "Seats are very narrow, distances between rows very short.’"

Cons: "Did not get seat assignments until 24 hrs before"

Pros: "A. Wet nice and observant stewardess helped me off the plane and onto the waiting bus.. Very kind and helpful"
Cons: "Was given the wrong flight information. The email I received the day of the flight was incorrect and now I have no way of getting to Bergen until tomorrow. I am forced to spend the night in London. This is inexcusable."

Pros: "Replacement flight was fine"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was not automatically re-booked, luggage lost and not delivered despite repeated effort to reclaim it.

Pros: "Free upgrade to Club was amazing. Really appreciated that gesture made Put Mr trip even more pleasurable."
Pros: "Almost nothing, I need to finish my points after which point I will avoid BA whenever possible."
Cons: "Staff is terrible. The aircraft flew yesterday was a 27 year old Boeing 767. The seat electronics did not work at all. Light, attendance call etc... An electric cable dangling from the top. When I asked them what it was the first response was that it was to help you get off your seat. Then when I asked again I was told that it was part of the electric wiring. Never ever ever fly BA. The only few remaining icons of British nationalism."
Cons: "No entertainment. Few passengers were standing in the middle of the isle having a loud conversation. We had an overnight flight from us so we wanted to rest. Asked the flight attendand if it is ok for passengers to have a party like this. He told me off. He said "if you have a problem you tell them". I asked if it is a safety issue standing on the corridor like so. He told me, "I am fine with it"

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 flat bed"
Cons: "The Captain made loud announcements waking you up"
Pros: "Food is not really included and the seat DONT recline. But the crew were great and boarding was easy"
Cons: "More food , comfortable seats"
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"
Pros: "New aircraft had free Wi-Fi and lots of movies. Clean."
Cons: "First bag fees of $120 per bag one-way were punitive. Anti-customer policy. Cannot recommend flying with them."
Cons: "We ended up with two center seats. Person in front put back her seat so I couldn't even fully unfold my service tray"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Seats were spacious. Plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "More frequent snacks."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, and the crew very friendly."
Cons: "The comfort onboard (A320) is not good: not reclining chairs, no entertainment, and horrible snack."
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I have taken in a very very long time. The ride was smooth but the seat was so terribly uncomfortable. I was in pain on arrival."
Cons: "We had to pay $120 for a checked bag because it “weighed too much”. The lady at the check in counter said they were weighing everyone’s at the gate so there was no way to get around it This however was a lie and they were not checking weight and people got on without having to pay the outrageous fee"
Pros: "The only salvation was the entertainment choices. ."
Cons: "The planes need to upgrade the seats. When we were served food if the person push their seat back your food tray would flip like two did on our flight. Staff was jaded and sarcastic. I'm glad I had a discounted flight. I'd be angry if I paid full price. Poor staff, seat architecture, and poor food."
Cons: "Aircraft left an hour late after rushing us through the terminal. The cabin was freezing, the food was bad. 13 hours was a very long time."
Pros: "the crew did really made sure we had what we needed."
Cons: "Should have made an announcement that the 3g cellular coverage was turned on. Went on in the middle of the flight and had no idea. My phone was in the overhead bin and I thought it was off. When I landed I had an outrageous fee. Should be given a choice to use it or not."
Cons: "They took an extremely long time clearing away the dirty dinner trays, which meant that the tray table had to be down. This made it near impossible to get up to use the restroom or to stretch."
Pros: "Very helpful gate attendants. The food was delicious and the movies were all current and kept us entertained for nine hours!"
Cons: "Very cramped legroom. Cabin was extremely hot. There was a man binge drinking in the seat across the aisle. He should’ve been cut off at some point, but he kept drinking. He was a worry."
Pros: "Choices of movies and music"
Cons: "The vegetarian food was horrible and lacked variety. Feel like TAP makes food choices harder than it needs to be. How hard is it to just have a pasta option. Instead we got tofu croquettes....."
Pros: "First time flying with TAP PORTUGAL and it was a great experience"
Cons: "Passenger was refused at check in because, according to the counter clerk, the ticket was not purchased in the country of residency but online in US. As a result, i lost the money, the passenger did not fly, and no refund was issued. this is the first time i ever heard of such BS. Not happy."
Pros: "Food was ok. Check in was ok in Portugal. The plane was good (entertainment and seat comfort)."
Cons: "flight crew can be more friendly in my opinion."
Pros: "My husband has a mobility scooter and they handled it better than American Airlines and we flew first class!!!"
Pros: "Food was of good quality."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. A group of very rowdy passengers who showed zero consideration for their fellow passengers and whom the crew did little or nothing to restrain, other than confiscating a bottle of alcohol they carried on board."
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."
Cons: "Pilots on strike. Faro to Lisbon flighted delayed. Missed connection to London. 6 hour delay in Lisbon."
Cons: "Both flights delayed by hours which took my short one day of traveling into two very long days."
Pros: "Everything smooth!"
Pros: "Lots of legroom. On board crew was good."
Cons: "Check-in was a little bit chaotic."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Employees are very nice."
Cons: "Flight to LIS was delayed 2.5 hours, missed BCN flight. I was given a new flight, but boardng pass was canceled at gate. I'm stranded!"
Pros: "The Magnum ice cream was a great touch."
Cons: "We thought that $35 per bag is a bit too much when other airlines are $25."
Pros: "Food, seats, flight attendants & in flight entertainment were all very good."
Pros: "So accommodating!! Top of the line!"
Pros: "The trip back home to NY from Lisbon was great, flight staff was attentive and courteous, the plane was clean, the entertainment made the time go by fast and the warm blanket and pillow provided a comfortable experience."
Cons: "Unfortunately my girlfriend is a celiac and we forgot to pre-order a gluten free meal, so she had little to no food options for her to eat. The sandwich offered right before landing could be made with gluten free bread or even a corn based tortilla."
Cons: "2 hour delay for a 30 minute flight. Really?"
Pros: "I got a sandwich. Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Late flight, and my life flashed before my eyes on the landing."
Cons: "Food was a piece of bread with some ham.....why bother?????"
Pros: "Great boarding process, friendly staff, the planes are newer and well-equipped, everything was on time, good food options on the plane"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the Ground crew who met me off the plane and had already arranged for me to go on a later flight with Emirates. If it had been possible to let me know when I was on the first flight that my onward travel had been arranged then it would have been perfect."
Cons: "my TAP Portugal flight from Lisbon to Heathrow was so late I missed my connection to AbuDhabi."
Cons: "Wait for boarding"
Cons: "We experienced a 6 hour delay in Lisbon because there was no fuel available - terrible planning causing us to spend hours on the runway."
Pros: "It was s a good value especially as a Star Alliance Gold flyer."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for sandwich snack."
Pros: "Once we were boarded, everything went fairly smoothly. The cabin staff are not rude, however they are just there to serve food and drinks, and are totally uninvolved and unwilling to enforce any rules."
Cons: "TAP is notorious for delaying departures, and both times I have flown with them, the flights have been delayed at least an hour. Their boarding procedure is also unorganized and often frustrating. The food is terrible. Don't eat the beef stew with Madeira sauce. It's like dog food."
Pros: "Nice crow"
Cons: "We spent about a half hour waiting to take off"
Cons: "No vegetarian meals, unless you request it 48 hours in advance. Seats are incredibly uncomfortable and the planes are old. Compared to the entertainment services provided on other aircrafts for other aircraft providers, the experience is abysmal. Bathroom was also not well attended."
Pros: "Had all the wine I could drink."
Cons: "The flight was too late for our connections."
Pros: "Late night dinner provided and morning snack"
Cons: "The seats are really hard to sit on (no soft at all) and seem to be made for very short people, so not enough leg support. I was glad it wasn't a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "My flight between Lisbon and New York was very comfortable. I've been flying mostly emirates lately, which is fantastic, so I didn't have high hopes but was pleasantly surprised! The food was good and the seats were very nice with plenty of leg room. I was also happy with the entertainment selection."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
