Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."

Pros: "modern comfortable plane, in flight entertainment was good, service was outstanding."
Cons: "food was meh at best, seats in economy are tight and there is no legroom"

Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "One particular female member of crew could do with a refresher course in customer care service !!!!! I asked for water and she gave me something else, when I told her very nicely that I had asked her for water she began to argue with me that I hadn’t, I thought her very rude, (what happened to the customer is always right) I have been flying with Virgin for twenty years twice a year sometimes even three !!!! and never been spoken to like this from any other member of staff!!!!"

We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "good plane and timing"
Cons: "meal was not served according to the request and no sound support from the staff"
Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement.

People were all crowded trying to figure out which "line" to be in when there were no lines, no instructions and lots of concerned passengers.

Cons: "We were told to check in at terminal 2A to British Air for our flight. BA was on the lower floor almost in terminal 2B and there were no signs indicating where we were to find their check-in. When we checked in they initially had no record of our continuing flight on Virgin Atlantic to the US. They checked our bags through to the US but could not give us boarding cards for the 2nd leg of our flight on Virgin."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "My baggage couldn't be checked straight through to the states. Had to pick up bags, go through security again, which limited time spent in the airport to enjoy duty free shopping etc. Baggage allowances were different between British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, which necessitated checking out carry on bags. The gate agent was accommodating and checked them at no charge, but that could have been an expensive proposition if she wasn't perceptive. All food and drinks on this flight are for purchase vs. complimentary"

Cons: "Not much to dislike. The flight was short. Perhaps that the seats need to be a bit more comfortable."

Pros: "I got free juice and a snack, almost unheard of nowadays!"

Cons: "I thought the food was just okay."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was average. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "American Airlines always use those old Boeings for flights between Paris and the US. They look so old inside. No modern entertainment. They still have those small screens on the ceiling. No individual entertainment stations. And seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very stressed about the flight being full and therefore was somewhat curt regarding baggage. Also, again not even a glass of water?"
Pros: "Your teammates, Fatou and Sarah at the check in desk in charles de gaulle made our lives doo easy after a stressful and ling journey. Their kind service and forethought helped us a lot."

Cons: "They didn't tell you about the delays! We have to find out through different sources"
Pros: "It flies"

Pros: "The airline accommodated an earlier flight since I got to the airport early. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seems to be mostly different in that there's nobody seating in the middle, and maybe a better "meal". Fortunately, it's a very short flight. It was delayed 45 minutes though, after we boarded, supposedly for congestion at the destination. Ended up doubling the time spent in the plane..."
Pros: "I did a round trip to Paris. 1st portion on American Airlines. The difference was astounding as to friendliness, service, food, wine and entertainment the Brit Air back to NYC from Paris was 1000 times better than the 1st portion to Paris on American."
Cons: "There was a stop over in London that got a bit confusing at boarding time in Heathrow ...as a flight to another country was being boarded at the same time and the set up in the general terminal make for some confusion as to which line to get into."
Pros: "Arrived early, earned oneworld status points."
Cons: "BA are a budget airline charging premium prices."
Pros: "Check-in was very easy and actually quiet compared to the rest of the airport."
Cons: "When we walked into the airport (upper floor), I didn't see any signs directing me to British Airways. We walked a long ways and finally asked someone who said we must go downstairs. More signs would help."
Pros: "Overall quick, easy and event free...just as flights should be."
Cons: "Plane got a little hot sitting at the gate and our seats were the only ones that didn't have air vents."
Pros: "Early, relaxed boarding process was excellent."

Cons: "€75 to check a bag PER PASSENGER"
Cons: "Attittude of Ground Staff and difficult to find check in counters at CDG airport"

Pros: "For the last flight of the day out of Paris, surprisingly the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had to wait for a bus to take us a very short distance to T5. The flight was packed - too many people with large carry-on cases."
Pros: "Fast bag drop and quick efficient boarding. Flight wasn't full so plenty of space. BA still serves complimentary drinks and a small snack (crisps or biscuit) with the drinks."
Pros: "entertainment was great and the staff was very friendly"
Pros: "All went well. Everything was comfortable"
Pros: "My luggage was lost and had to wait 2hrs."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "The process for getting ready to board was a little chaotic"
Cons: "Boarding process was in fact dangerous, with people corralled into small spaces without letting them out on the other end. We felt claustrophobic, crushed, and at one point people were even having to jump over the escalator to the bus loading area because there was too much crowding. Dangerous"
Pros: "Crew was great, the plane was barely full, so you were able to stretch out."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "In old section of Lisbon airport, and inadequate space to conduct orderly and efficient boarding Both deplaning and re boarding done via movable ramps and passage to and from exposed to weather (thankfully not raining)."
Pros: "Nothing, I tried to cancel the reservation 3 days after I made it and couldn’t even get a percentage back. What a waste."
Cons: "Let me cancel the flight for a percentage back so I didn’t have to waste the entire price of the flight for a ticket I couldn’t use."
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"
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."
Cons: "Coordination between connection flight"
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."
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."
Cons: "There was an undisclosed $120 baggage fee. The food was horrible and made me sick. We left nearly two hours late."
Pros: "It was a rather empty flight so I was able to have space to myself to stretch out."
Cons: "Everything. We were late boarding, late taking off, micromanaged by the crew like we’re stupid, the food was truly god awful atrocious... and there were like 20 movies to choose from for a 7 hour flight. Furthermore, there were NO snacks available for purchase so you were forced to eat gross food."
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: "We were lucky that the flight was not full, more space and comfort. Our special meals ordered in advance were provided how ever a little limited Flight was generally smooth and we arrived earlier than scheduled even though we have left later than scheduled. Great service. New, Clean and comfortable aircraft The process while in transit at Lomé was fast and simple."
Cons: "The fasten seatbelt was constantantly on (not only while in turbulence) Though we had two full rows available for us, the seat handles could not be lifted; hence the full row could not be utilized... No entertainment at all. This can be advised ahead for you to come with adequate tablet."
Pros: "Overall was ok gor a very cheap flight considering it is not a lowcoster."
Cons: "Very incomfortable seats. Hardly reclign, no leg room. I am 5’8” and slim and it was tight."
Pros: "The crew and passengers were in a great mood on a Saturday night flight feom Orly to LIS"
Cons: "There were papers and debris from previous flight still on the floor. Clearly they did not vacuum. If yoy want piece and quiet, this is not thw late flight for you."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
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."
Pros: "Nice and clean aircraft, snack on the way to Lisbon"
Cons: "Cramped seats (very),"
Cons: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."
Pros: "was a direct flight"
Cons: "we were made to exit down a slepery stairs and pack ourselves like sadines on a bus to the terminal..not good!"
Pros: "Nice food"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, no entertainment"
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: "Of no change is BULLSHIT"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "It was hot in the cabin. The lights were turned on and off without an announcement and without much time to sleep."
Pros: "We were traveling with a 7 month old so boarding was made easy by the crew. Most of the crew were quite pleasant during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system hand piece failed so you were unable to select channels, turn the over head light off or ever call for assistance. We had to get another passenger to do that for us. Ultimately the light bulb had to be removed from the fixture. During the flight, we asked for more refreshments and were told we could only have water by a flight attendant. Upon arrival at our destination with a child in hand, our stroller was not unloaded at the gate so we had to carry our child and all that travels with him to the baggage area. For anyone travelling internationally, you will know this is generally quite a distant from the gate in major airports. The strollers and car seats arrived in baggage 30 minutes after the main luggage. When staff were approached they were short and appeared very disinterested in helping. TAP failed on this flight home."
Cons: "Your change and return policy is a ripoff."
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."
Pros: "Professional and comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing. Staff unhelpful and unorganized."
Cons: "They seem super unorganized. You wait on a line to check-in, then another one to board and then another one to actually sit down. I've enevet been on an airline that has such long waits."
Pros: "Nice refreshments, friendly attendants"
Cons: "It took a very long time to check in and board."
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."
Cons: "No water, but it's a short flight so they probably just didn't have time."
Pros: "Exceptional service and professionalism of crew. Food was delicious...Aircraft was clean. Left on time...landed half hour early. It was a perfect flight."
Cons: "My husbands snoring. LOL."
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!"
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: "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."
Pros: "Website, check-in, boarding."
Cons: "Seat pitch"
