Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "They are not considerate at all . It was a pain till they find Me another flight. The flight won’t take off till the next day And the lay over in Los Angeles is 7hrs . It’s a 2 days flight. They didn’t even try to take the time to find me a sooner flight because there were other upset customers waiting. So disappointed on how poor the help desk at Turkish airline."

Cons: "The 14-hour trip that made it hard for comfort it wasn't your fault just a distance that I had to go"
Pros: "Usually a great trip."
Cons: "A series of about 9 rows of 3 seats each row, had errors in to the monitors that normally you can watch a movie, watch news, or listen to music. Approximately 27 people could not use these monitors affixed in the seat before you. These monitors (screens) control the reading lights, the signal for the stewardess. Flight 33 on 6/30/2017 had 12.3 hours of blankness and the complaints were numerous, but the crew were of no use. I wish this would have happened to business or first class. The crew were horrible."
Pros: "Service, Food, Crew, short announcements, boarding, entertainment"

Cons: "I have lactose intolerance and I tried ordering the special meals. However the lactose free meals are not good. I got it more than once, it's always dry grilled chicken, steamed veggies and plain rice. Overall it's a dry meal and no flavorful at all. On this trip I didn't order a special as I was hoping one of the options wouldn't have lactose."
Pros: "Meals, friendliness and warmth of staff, restrooms were routinely maintained, movies."
Pros: "Entertainment on board was the best part. Food is decent."
Cons: "Worst customer service I've ever had in an airport at Attaturk. Turkish airline staff was horribly rude, wouldn't acknowledge their mistakes, very uninforming and all of it to pretty much force you to pay the airline more money in penalty fees for changing flight arrangements and new ticket purchases. And be careful THEY DON'T have any announcement on the intercom system at Attaturk (I had no clue as to that being the case there, nor have I ever been at an airport that doesn't). No boarding announcement, no gate change announcement, no nothing.....and if and when you miss a flight because you didn't know the gate changed while you're sitting at what you thought was your gate and no one bothered to let you know (including the person who checked your boarding pass when you came into that gate area, it's down hill from there! They will tell you it's your fault and not give a dam* what you say to argue otherwise....and......if you don't pay the penalty they dictate to change your flight ($1114 on a $780 ticket in my case so I purchased another ticket on Turkish air on my own for $236 to get me where I was going), they WILL cancel your return flight without telling you, at which point you will have to buy a new ticket to get back home and they end up getting the money out of you regardless. This was an absolute nightmare of a trip, couple with being treated like dirt by everyone at the airport. I will not ever again fly Turkish Air if I can help it."
Pros: "The security measures"
Cons: "1- bad service 2- bad attitudes 3- Always DELAYS 4- lost the bag"

Pros: "Super comfortable"
Cons: "Every think was very better"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Yo no pude viajar y no tube ni siquiera una remuneración un empleado de luftansa me dijo que no podía viajar Ali mejor por que no le simpatize y le quedó sin viajar y perdiendo dinero tiempo"
Cons: "too many unruly kids"

Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Great hospitality"
Cons: "So bad"
Pros: "Business class"

Cons: "Poor wine selection (one red one white) Flight attendants overserved alcohol to passenger in my area to point of slurring and not walking off plane. Food..bread hard and poor."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and varied"
Cons: "Seats were horrible. I'm only 5'1" and the seats were too short. Also there was no room under the seat in front of me so that the backpack that always fits completely under the seat in front stuck out and there was no room for my feet. I could not move. Food nice but pretty tasteless."
Pros: "Arriving on time."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."

Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Cons: "Can’t tell you anything- missed connection"

Pros: "Arrived with enough time for me to connect to my international flight."
Cons: "Boarding had no clear order. Had an international connecting flight and by the time I needed to board, there was no room in the overhead and I had to check my luggage. The airline should provide a vegan snack option for customers."
Cons: "Never made it and they knew several people were still in customs"
Pros: "Still thinking about it."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no organization. People just flooded the gate like animals.."
Pros: "Crew, condition of planes, food all excellent"
Cons: "Connection at Frankfurt bad. Had to be unloaded from plane and put on buses and dumped at terminal. Extra 25 minutes plus customs and ran to make connecting international flight. They have a HUGE opportunity for improvement in the way they move people in Airport."
Pros: "Same as a above"
Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"

Pros: "Handled the delay professionally with full transparency."
Pros: "It was all very standard- crew was nice, plenty of food"
Cons: "the system for checking bags at Paris CDG was really bad. The Kiosks to print bag tags were really hard to use - esp for older folks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."

Pros: "Everything was great!! Thanks so much!!"
Cons: "Plane was an hour late. Boarding among the worst EVER ANYWHERE."
Pros: "over great job and service."

Cons: "Frequent American Airlines passenger. Found WestJet had far more leg room and plenty overhead storage. Plane was clean and flight attendants where attentive."

Cons: "Late, late, late. No window, and prisoner in my seat!"
Pros: "On time . Friendly staffs ."
Pros: "Everything from boarding early to funny safety announcement was awesome."
Cons: "I think they should remove the ability to have people lean back in their seats on the shorter flights. It’s clostraphobic when some feel they have to have a ‘lay back nap’ for such a short flight. It is like you have zero breathing room and feels like they are encroaching on my breathing space. People, the seats are already too close together must you lay back?"
Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "Good amount of leg room. The children were well behaved."

Cons: "Crew missed me with the drink cart."
Pros: "Ease to board, on time boarding"
Cons: "Return to gate prior to take off"
Pros: "Both Airports had actually quite an easy and fast process to enter and leave. (Pearson - Toronto, Logan - Boston) The employees working for Westjet were polite and resourceful."
Cons: "There is a lot of turbulance, I'm not sure if the planes are smaller then other ones, but it isn't delightful. As well the 2nd flight was more then an hour delayed. Wasn't notified until I was already waiting at the airport. If people need to travel more then an hour to get to the airport then need to be notified much earlier when to come. Ended up waiting almost 3 hours at the gate."

Pros: "The staff were very good jumped in by running with me in a wheelchair till we met up with a cart then next team met up and took me again in a wheelchair down elevator made it just on time"

Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."

Pros: "Food and price"
Cons: "On time departure"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "My family wasn't given a choice on the meal they were given which was hard because most of them don't eat fish (it was codfish). One of the flights was delayed 2 hrs & then didn't take off for 40 mins after the two hours because boarding wasn't started til 10 mins before it was scheduled to takeoff"
Pros: "Newer planes, good service"
Cons: "The terminal in Lisbon is poor. Poor food choices. Dirty bathrooms. And keep an eye on the change you get back, 2 out of 2 purchases they tried to shortchange me... one was for over 2 euros."

Pros: "Nothing stood out. Legroom was ok."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and poorly managed."
Cons: "TAP was late getting the first flight out, offered almost no help and almost left 22 people stranded in Portugal and tried to get us to pay for a new flight at our own expense. Customer service was terrible. Multiple people in line said they had been stranded in Portugal by TAP airlines before."
Cons: "Been on schedule."
Pros: "Very efficient and competent crew. Very much like the A330 plane."
Cons: "On our flight from Lisbon to Paris Orly the baggage took two hours become it was delivered. We were later told the baggage crew forgot some of the bags."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional. Airplane was comfortable and very spacious. Food was awesome."
Cons: "Really need to look at a more efficient way to board the passengers. Was pretty chaotic and the gate was way too small for so many people. Feel like the passengers with carry on luggage were thrown to the wolves while those with backpacks were treated way better."
Cons: "The moment to enter to the airplane needs to be more organized. The food served was terrible. No air conditioning during the time we were waiting inside the airplane."
Pros: "Not much. Check in luggage charges destroyed the experience, this was not disclosed on the ticket itinerary"
Cons: "TAP charges $120 1st checkin bag, this was not disclosed on the itinerary or kayak site when we book the ticket. We expect kayak to refund this."
Pros: "The crew were excellent during the flight."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight because our first flight was delayed. Despite getting to the desk when there were still people queuing he refused to let us board. We are now delayed for 30 hours with no money or clothes. TAP staff were horrible- no sympathy or even an apology. Just awful."
Pros: "I would def use this airline again."
Cons: "The only issue was they’re weren’t any outlets to charge your phone or laptop"
Pros: "The crew and passengers were in a great mood on a Saturday night flight feom Orly to LIS"

Pros: "Prompt and courteous"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, just not enough space al the way around to be comfortable."
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: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."
Cons: "Crew was very sour faced, impolite and rude the whole time. Seats were way too packed"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, we boarded on time and landed a bit early which was nice. We recieved little snack packs that had a sandwich and a granola bar or fruit snacks and a juice."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable to sleep on for 6 hours as they didn't recline back too much but that is to be expected in 2nd class seats."
Cons: "Not good I book a fly"
Cons: "40euro checked bag fee on an international itinerary was an unpleasant surprise. They were quite disorganized; our airport-printed boarding passes wouldn't scan at the gate, they didn't have a jet-way ready upon arrival in Lisbon ..."
Pros: "Ice cream for snack."
Cons: "Flight from Oporto to Lisbon, when we landed they did not set up the ramp to exit the plane, I had requested mobility assistance. And the ramp was right next to the plane."
Pros: "Check-in and baggage drop was fast. Food was good. Cabin crew did their job. Economy plus seats are comfortable and leg room was ok (I'm 1,84m tall). So, smooth and easy flight."

Pros: "Decent staff on the plane"
Cons: "Could not move my seat the plane was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew was exceptional. Very, very friendly and professional. It stood out."
Cons: "The airplane was pretty old and it's time for a makeover."
Cons: "The monitors did not work."
Cons: "We were advised as we boarded that there would be no meal/snack service on the 3 hour flight. There was no time to purchase food at this time. It would have been good to have a big sign in the check in desk or a PA announcement so passengers could make alternate arrangements."
Pros: "I got a sandwich. Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Late flight, and my life flashed before my eyes on the landing."
Pros: "The staff was very nice. Only bad incident was the misinformation on getting the D Tax. We went early to the airport to do it but could not get it because of erroneous information form the check in agent."
Cons: "When we checked our bags the check in agent did not let us take out bags after getting the boarding pass so we could get the D Tax refund at Customs. She said it was not necessary. She was wrong. French customs wanted to see the merchandise which we no longer had. When we complained at TAP we were told do it in Lisbon. Again in Lisbon we could not get the D tax because that custom agent wanted to see the merchandise which was being transferred to our Lisbon - Newark flight. We loss refunds of over $400. This problem ruined a perfect trip."
Pros: "i like the snack they gave."
Cons: "After we had to turn around to BOS because of a technical issue with the plane, the customer server was really unhelpful! I ended up figuring out a completely other flight, through another airline and booked myself on that flight. I worked with this Airline almost an hour to get myself on it and then it seems that it took TAP Portugal that hour PLUS SOME to suggest alternate flights to other stranded passengers."
Pros: "My wife needs help getting around but they placed us in the last row. No leg room again either. The crew was understanding and helpful."
Pros: "Crew did a good job of keeping their cool when my flight was canceled and merged with another. After 4 hours of delay because the Pope was traveling to the same place we were and having to hand out all new boarding passes to confused and anxious passengers, the crew were always friendly and helpful."
Pros: "decent selection of movies and the tablet was nice to watch them on"
Cons: "Despite booking a vegetarian meal none was available."
Cons: "Paid $130 for 2 extra spac s acts. Didn't have any extra space. Had a woman in front of me who reclined her seat all the way for he whole flight. Had to have on of he crew to ask her to put her sat forward for the food service part of th flight."
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Service was poor, the seat was not comfortable."
Pros: "They served a sandwich."
Cons: "I flew TAP in sept 2016. It was full service invoked TAP again because of this and then had to pay for a small checked bag at the airport. Also there were a lot of sick people on this flight. Two people near me theew up."
Pros: "Friendly crew!"
Pros: "Offered food, left on time, arrived on time. Seat next to me was empty."
Cons: "Turbulence, only one check in line at the gate."
Cons: "Showed up two hours early for flight. Forgot my passport and TAP refused to help us in any way possible. Ended up having to purchase two tickets through another airline. Will never travel with this airline again or recommend this airline."
Cons: "NO Options for vegetarians. main curse and snacks were with meat."
Cons: "Less meat in the food, please. I somehow missed the opportunity to request a vegetarian meal, but many other airlines offer at least one vegetarian entree option (e.g., pasta)."
Pros: "Love how tap took care of us when hurricane Mathew was passing. We were sent to a nice hotel in Fatima (city in Portugal). The company paid for our lunch dinner and breakfast. Unbelievable customer service."
Cons: "Flight was way late."
Pros: "Food was great. There were two meals to Lisbon. I think the meatball plate was delish. When arriving to Boston, I experienced my first fake landing! I saw the landing strip, but then in full throttle took off again. It was quite an experience!"
Pros: "Crew did the best with what they had"
Cons: "Four hour delays with little to no updates along the way are inexcusable"
Pros: "The crew was average"
Cons: "It was an average flight ... nothing to complain about !"
Pros: "Easy to buy"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "Space on airplanes are getting smaller and smaller , not more comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work, frustrating."
Pros: "I landed safely"
Cons: "The infotainment system didn’t work. Headphones connection is faulty. Everything else was ok."
Pros: "On time and all fine. Excellent service and good food."
Cons: "Small plane, no room for cabin luggage"
Cons: "They changed planes and the seats I paid for at reservation were different on the new plane. No warning!!"
Cons: "Late to take off, thankfully I had booked my flights far enough apart as this also happened last year on the same trip/flight."
Cons: "Flight was about 2 hours late, little food supplied to flight"
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled for 4 times ... Every time standing in a line for the new boarding pass"
Cons: "Flight was delayed My wife and I got separate seats Screen and audio on the entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "At least you get a drink and small snack on a 5+ hour flight."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge is cramped, uncomfortable, and run poorly. The only bright spot on this flight was the captain who got out of the cockpit and loaded our luggage himself when it was apparent after an hour and a half that the ground crew was not going to do it."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, always offering water and anything else we needed. The captain was very good about warning us about turbulence. Boarding the plane was quick and efficient."
Cons: "I felt the aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly. It's disheartening when your seat/area isn't clean and you're stuck there for 13 hours."
Cons: "Passengers checking luggage are better off waiting in the economy line - it moved much faster than the business class line."
Pros: "Needs wifi"
Pros: "Decent movies."
Cons: "I separated from my 2 daughters and husband because they did not allow me to pick seats or check in online. I was stuck in the seat immediately in front of the stinky bathroom in a seat that didn't recline, had no hdmi charging port and was pretty much continuously crowded by bathroom-goers. In fact, so many bathroom goers grabbed the seat in front of me that they touched my movie screen about 7-8 times, causing the menu to pop up and interrupt the movie. Otherwise, the food was gross and one of the flight attendants was very grumpy."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was small, seats not very comfortable, entertainment system was down. After traveling 24 hours it was not pleasant. Additionally, coming from Vancouver on a late arrival, no one helped expedite me to the flight. I had to leave International, clear immigration and Customs, then enter immigration and US Customs. When I told anyone I was possibly missing my next flight it was met with a shrug, as if it was just my problem. Not a good way to treat customers."
Pros: "Love the individual entertainment & the friendly staff team"
Cons: "Going through 6 stages of security!!!! I understand to be safe, but good grief! I bought a bottle of liquor in the duty free at the Budapest airport thinking doing it this way I would not get harassed. Wrong!!! They freaked out and held us up even longer! We almost missed our last flight because of all the security steps we had to go through!!! And so did many other people. It's a ridiculous system, it should all be done at once with only having to stay in the long line ONCE! And to scan our own passports and waiting to see our name on some board to be able to leave that particular room just to be met with even longer lines afterwards is insane. I am not a tech savvy person, as I am sure a lot of others are not either, and I got barely any help to show me how the heck to do all of that! Unacceptable!! And to top everything off, an item was stolen out of my daughter's suitcase somewhere along the way!! Replacing it cost me about $40!!!"
Pros: "Very friendly & helpful flight attendants."
Cons: "my flight was late leaving midland and therefore I missed my flight from houston to toronto NO one at the Houston United airport counters would help me I stood in line at customer service for an hour and a half just so they could tell me to go see some one at the Air Canada to confirm my rebook and that my flight was delayed an hour anyway and I probably could have made it!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."
Pros: "Honestly, can't expect to be ridiculously comfortable being a 6'2 female on an airplane. The staff was friendly, running about doing their jobs. The plane was clean, temperature was a bit chilly but hey, it's all good. Overall, it got me from point a to point b. And that's really all you can ask for. Thanks everyone!"
Cons: "Air was chilly. Leg room obviously because I'm so tall. Other than those two things, it was as enjoyable as it could have possibly been."
Cons: "The USB port in seat 26A was pushed in and wouldn't connect for power. Unless this was exactly the same plane it was true on both flight to and return from Boston. The LCD entertainment system is very slow to respond to touch. The default sound level is always too loud. The commercials take up the first 10 minutes (or longer) of the experience and make for an excruciating long wait."
Pros: "Choices of movies were nice . Food was good ."
Pros: "It got us where we needed to go safely."
Cons: "No entertainment, understaffed (garbage from meal sat on tray tables for longer than any flight I've flown), uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Once again great airline!!"
Cons: "Food is meh at best but is reasonably price for quality"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Boarding was on time. Comfortable sheet."
Cons: "Food was horrible, and table was dirty and looked like it wasn't cleaned. Poor music and movie selection."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and we had more leg room than most planes."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and no food was served - only snacks you could buy."
Pros: "Great airline. Highly recommend them"
Cons: "Their choice of movies are exactly the same as my first flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver. Does it offer the same things for the other longer flights too? This is outrageous: you have to pay for the headphone."
Pros: "good entertainment choices"
Cons: "I was on a transatlantic flight overnight, and in coach. Not enough room to get comfortable."
Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Non reclining seats for such a long flight. Very little leg room and indifference of flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late. It had apparently arrived late, and then they had mechanical problems. Air Canada gave me some inaccurate information which delayed me in Montreal and made me miss my connection to Toronto. Also, even though I specified to the flight attendant that I was connecting to Toronto before going to the US , they only gave me the US custom form even though you apparently need to fill the Canadian one even if you are just transiting through the country."
Pros: "Entertainment system might have been nice if the earphone plug worked."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat of all time because it was broken but the flight attendant didn't care."
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "This flight was okay since United Airlines operated it for Air Canada."
Cons: "You had to pay to watch movies."
Pros: "The crew and boarding is always efficient."
Cons: "It is a must to upgrade your seat if traveling longer than 3 hours."
Pros: "Seat where very roomy. Service was amazing.."
Cons: "There was a mess inside terminal 1 April 25 at 8pm when we arrived perhaps the pilot could have gave us heads up. Very confused as to what was going on."
Pros: "Short, quick and convenient"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was wonderful. Great plane, food, staff, entertainment."
Cons: "The layover at Toronto. There were several areas of the airport that we had to go through like customs, immigration for the US and to then find the plane to the US. I had two children with me too. I had staff in the airport either not be willing to point directions for me; rather chat with their fellow employees; or give me wrong directions, then change their mind. It made it more stressful and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Assigned a seat that did not recline, no onboard entretainment, tiny snack. The flight was operated by United. The wifi did not work so no movies."
Pros: "Despite the original delay with the flight boarding staff was efficient at getting us on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "The second part, from Toronto to Houston was the pitts. First of all they called me to the gate way before the boarding time and so I was a bit worried but when i got there there was nothing, they just confirmed I arrived from Montreal. This was strange and so I got a bit stressed as to why they had a called me and made me rush in the first place. Anyway, minor compared to the rest of the experience. The flight boarding was late, then an unscheduled stop in memphis for extra gas, then a tech problem that needed maintenance kept on on the ground. We finally made it to our destination 2 hours late. Most fellow passengers missed connecting flights and because we got out of the airport after midnight needed to get a cab to our accommodations. While I appreciate the attention to safety (and the curteous crew who obviously felt bad and were taking a lot of shit) we what was supposed to be a 3 hour flight ended up being 5 and there were no meals for sale,very limited snacks. We got one complimentary ,half can of juice and a bag of tiny bag spicy trail mix (labelled ranch) that i could not eat. After the delays we got an extra glass of complimentary cranberry juice. Which was amazing, but really did not cut it (from 5:15- midnight). By the end I was uncomfortable and starving! This was a radically disappointing experience in compared to the Ari Canada portion of the trip."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Very poor service. Staff a little weird and not helpfull at all."
