Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick. Smooth!"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Starters, main course, etc where very odd combination of flavors and therefore not at all appealing. Don't provide beverage service in Business outside of meal times. Seats good but space is restricted. Feel closed in."
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!"
Cons: "Wait time on buses from-to airplane to terminal was long."
Cons: "The crew could be a little bit more accommodating. Both flights ran short of toilet paper. They don’t conduct an intermediate check of the toilets."
Pros: "Great Crew nice plane"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, not enough space for carry on, due to luggage cost is way overpriced, as well as seats too expensive"
Pros: "all staf in airport pleasant and quickly to across other place to connect"
Cons: "a lot of people they pass by preference, and late for star Alliance"
Pros: "Excelent service."
Pros: "airlines could have mentioned that the second leg would require going thru security again and would take a very long time and that I should do this immediately after disembarking even though a gate had not yet been assigned. As A consequence of an intensive interview process before boarding the international leg of the trip (initially only two reps processing everyone on the plane for a few minutes each) the plane left the gate late. It also lost another 15 -20 minutes in flight making it 30 minutes late and I missed my connection in Miami necessitating me to spend a night in a motel and finish my flight the next day."
Cons: "Had the crew enabled me to be first off the plane I would have made the connection but I lost an additional 20-25 minutes being seated in the rear of the plane"
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."
Cons: "Our tickets were economy class Y for all of our flights, and we each checked a bag free on the outbound trip. But, returning we had to pay 170 euros for our 2 checked (1 each) bags. TAP (Air Portugal) in Toulouse said our outbound flights were "Basic" fares while our return flights were "Discounted" fares. Discounted fares do not include checked bags while Basic fares include 1 free checked bag. We paid $3,106.36 for the round trip for both of us, which hardly seems like a discounted fare, before paying an additional 170 euros on the return flight. I will be looking into filing a Class Action suit trying to recover all overcharges on behalf of all passengers."
Cons: "No cnn or fox news in English"
Pros: "We had comfort seats and I liked that because of the space you have, 2 simple meals and they served water in between the meals I will fly TAP again"
Cons: "Entertainment is okay, poor sound, and the quality of the screen was so so,"
Cons: "Food is horrible and the airplane la are very old."
Cons: "Inbound flight - flight got canceled from Budapest - after calling the airline and waiting in the line the 2 first lady I was talking to put me on hold and never got back to me, the 3rd lady had no idea why the flight got canceled except it was for emergency. She said next flight would be 2 days later - after calling the insurance I booked for the flight, they didn't want to reimburse for the interruption because the airline could not explain why it got canceled and i should prove that the flight was canceled - after being 6h on the phone with airline and insurance and waiting line had to hang of without solution. I had to purchase a new ticket from another airline to be able to fly on the same day back to Miami. - after arriving at the airport next morning for the other flight it turns out that Tap Portugal booked me to British Airways but they have not send me a notification email about it, so if I do not ask at the counter for Tap Portugal for the paperwork for the insurance I would never find out that i got a new flight and i would have miss it and the insurance would have never pay for it. With the new ticket i had to purchase, my travel with Tap Portugal cost me on the end around $3000, and I do not have that much money for a ticket at all, now I have a financial trouble. Thanks, never again."

Pros: "This is the third time I fly with TAP and they are always late. Plane seats have zero legroom. TAP staff are not friendly and seem uncaring for the most part. If possible, I will not fly that airline again."
Cons: "My TAP flight from Lisbon to Madeira island was 2 hours late arriving so I lost all of my flight connections back to Boston and San Francisco. I was stuck in Lisbon Portugal for one extra day - was told to get out of the airport, then asked a bunch of people what to do, finally got in a very long line of people within a very hectic and loud airport full of travelers. 60+ people in a line being helped by only 2 rude counter staff. I waited in TAP member services line for 2 hrs and 30 minutes. They gave me a voucher to a motel and a taxi cab where I would have to spend the night. On my way back, I was diverted form Boston to Miami and the whole ordeal was unpleasant. It seems like TAP staff doesn't care about inconveniencing passengers. I overhead a conversation between a young 30+ year old TAP male staff wearing a dark blue sweater and dark blue pants belittling a British woman passenger. While waiting in line I was surprised to see how rude the counter TAP staff were to passengers who were frustrated that they lost their flight connections because of the TAP plane's late arrival. IF possible, I would never fly TAP again."
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Cons: "You can't watch a movie you want to. The channels are set, like tv, can't rewind or pause"
Cons: "They keep us inside the bus trapped for more than 20 min, before boarding, very bad experience."
Pros: "Food was gross I couldn't even eat it. The soup came in a paste and the beef tasted expired, I saw a hair on my rice. Just awful, for the entire flight from Lisbon to Miami I didn't eat it was just disgusting. I've flown and never had such an awful experience with the food."
Cons: "Tasted bad, unsanitary. I found a hair and the food just looks like something I would give my dog."
Pros: "Good flight, boarded and left on time. Food and service were fine."
Cons: "My entertainment system at my seat kept freezing. Would have used it throughout the flight but was only able to watch one movie. Reset attempts occurred but eventually I gave up."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Very unorganized"
Pros: "So much more leg room than the first flight, was able to fully stretch out my legs when needed. Better entertainment with so many viewing options; was able to watch 4 movies."
Cons: "Turbulence was pretty bad, but I can't fault the airline for that. Food was typical plane food, but they did cancel the second meal due to turbulence. At the end of a 9 hour flight I was starving by the time we landed. Constant updates over the loud speaker by the pilot and stewardess got annoying; felt like every 20-30 minutes and saying the same thing, and saying it in 3 different laugages."
Pros: "There was enough space between the rows of seats!"
Pros: "Only a ten minute delay but made up for it in the air and arrived on time."
Pros: "Servicio al cliente en el aeropuerto d Lisboa muy regular casi malo las señoritas d mal genio"
Pros: "Punctual, good crew"
Cons: "No free entertainment in an international flight, food no good for vegetarian meals"
Pros: "We were actually a few minutes early. No complaints."
Pros: "Went smoothly"
Cons: "Miserable seats. Inadequate overhead storage - I was forced to put my only carry on, a day pack, under my seat making the small seat and foot room even more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Decent Crew! Good in flight beverage service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check-in from my phone ( United is stuck in 1980's) Forced me to use Ticket Kiosk at Airport. Wouldn't print out a boarding pass and wanted ticketing agent to verify my luggage. I had an empty backpack and a small laptop case, she told me only one piece allowed, seriously?? She made me put my laptop in my backpack and the carrying case as well. The boarding pass didn't assign a seat to me and told me that I have to get another boarding pass at gate.. Simply unacceptable. I am a frequent flyer with Frontier and Spirit pirit, thanks to those Airlines which never treated me bad and gave me hassle like United did. No more United for me ever. WiFi was advertised but never worked inspite of me wanting to pay for it."
Pros: "Kiosk help at Newark very annoyed to be helping me"
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Drinks took a while to receive after takeoff."
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "No wifi, no recline on seat, entertainment system didn’t work"
Pros: "I guess the flight was ok. The pilot knew where he was going"
Cons: "It can't be true that they have not even a small blanket for someone who kindly ask and then when the flight is over you see them every where and unopened in first class. Pretzels,... Seriously..???. These airlines are n need of a real policy that lets them know it is money we are expending when we take a flight. And taking the carry-on bag. AFTER YOU PAID TO HABE IT WITH YOU?? Unacceptable. And not seating people together after you call and re call and talk to 3 different persons... The last one just says: I will see what can be done and then ignores you... Not NICE. Please remember that many airlines have come and go. Those are some of the reasons."
Pros: "The crew was very swift in resolving the issue and getting us on another aircraft."
Cons: "Hated that we had to unboard for something as simple as radio/printer connection. I had other arrangements at the time I was supposed to land."
Pros: "The staff gave out free snacks and were friendly"
Cons: "Too loud and the delay was an inconvenience"
Cons: "Charge for carry on Middle seat No full can of beverage"
Pros: "Courtesy of crew."
Cons: "Left late. Arrived late. Bumpy flight."
Cons: "Basic Economy tickets are a joke. They are no savings for customers just added restrictions and an overall unenjoyable flight experience as you are being surveillanced by every United associate to ensure you pay for a carry on bag. United and Spirit airlines are now one in the same. United hasn’t suddenly introduced lower fares than before, but rather is reducing the benefits that come with the most basic fares."
Pros: "Very normal. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Our seta were separated by two rows."
Pros: "That we arrived alive."
Cons: "We weren't allowed to put our carryons in the overhead. We were forced to put them under the seat in front of us because the plane was full. This left no place for our feet or stretching our legs. The seats were cramped so closely together, our knees touched the seat pocket in front of us. When putting down the tray table, it pressed against our stomachs. The landing was the worst and scariest one I've experienced in over 40 yrs of frequent flying. We hit so fast and hard that the plane teetered from one wheel to the other and fish tailed so hard that people's necks were hurt. If possible, I'll never fly United again."
Pros: "Great flight attendants!"
Cons: "UNITED employees are very rude"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The seats felt stiff"
Cons: "I do not like those head rests.. I wish the were detachable."
Pros: "No positives"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3+ hours... In this order... • United system went down • when it came up instead of us next they let a later flight go next • then they moved our gates • then they changed planes so all luggage needed to be moved • then their flight crew timed out, so couldn't leave • I didn't want to end up at my desination at 4am in the morning or later so it would completely screw up my sleep/work schedule, so I left, ate the cost and the time and rebooked on another airline"
Pros: "Flawless. Staff was so nice and the seats were super comfy. We got there so quickly. Love it!"
Pros: "The wifi entertainment was great."
Cons: "It was really hot in the flight. I complained to the flights attendants about the temperature a couple of time and the nothing was done about it. One flight attendant replied that she felt cold. The gentleman next to me also complained about the temperature and nothing was done."
Pros: "fly with UA"
Cons: "the seat. no confortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours from Manchester, which would have made me miss my connecting flight to MIA"
Pros: "Left right on time."
Cons: "To be fair, this is my third flight of the day, so I am very tired and this was the smallest aircraft of the trip."
Pros: "Everything !"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Horrible leg room"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "It left on time and arrived earlt"
Cons: "I was seated in a window seat and another woman my size about 110 pounds was seated in the aisle however there was a 400+ pound man sitting in a middle seat which made it very difficult for me especially to even sit back because it was touching me the whole time when you have somebody of that size You should make sure they are on and I'll because then the find attendance would have some difficulty getting through instead of your passengers being inconvenienced either that or force people of that size to take two seats"
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "The United app was sending me false alerts that caused me to miss my flight. The crew seemed to not care at all."
Cons: "I ended up changing my flight in Newark airport to Fort Lauderdale that landed earlier that the one they gave me up in Scraton.."
Cons: "You're already charging for overpriced everything, have the decency of providing FREE entertainment on allll flights."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Airport was horrible! Security line was 45 min. long and on the other side of the world. The plane was an hour late! No snow. No storms. Why? The crew, I guess tired, seemed bothered by the company of the passengers. The line to wait at the gate was very unorganized and confusing. No one knew which line was for which gate and people where cutting into lines everywhere. The airlines should provide better guidance for its passengers. I was connecting from Germany with Lufthansa and wow what a difference in customer service."
Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Attendants were very hospitable."
Pros: "I received prior notice of the flight's delays dead able to adjust my schedule. There was amancreating s disturbance with the terminal crew and they handled it appropriately."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was too cramped. Passengers behind us were rude. Kept kicking backseat all flight (and there were no kids). Little uncomfortable for new plane"
Cons: "delayed 3 hours going there delayed 1 hour 40 minutes on the way back both done the same day. missed appointments the worst experience ever"

Pros: "The pilot got us there safely. Good deal of turbulence."
Cons: "Stewardesses were rude to many. Chit chatted with each other whole way, ignored passengers. "Too turbulent" to serve us a beverage, which was okay. Except first class got full service. Wrong."
