Rudeness is a turn off passengers who are tired"

Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."

Pros: "Food is good . Service is good"

Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."
Cons: "Upon arrival at the final destination, I couldn’t find one of my 2 checked baggages, asked the emirates ground staff and i was told that they were unable to track the bag and not sure if it was loaded on to the aircraft at the origin airport or lost in transit. Lost my wedding suite and fiancé ‘s wedding gown and plenty other wedding things."

Pros: "The ways cabin Crew treated customers very well and politely . I feel comfortable."
Cons: "Because you guys treated customers well so they did something over. I flight from Genève airport to Hanoi but i transfer in Dubai. Next to me is a 3 girls. They are keep talking around three hours it’s doesn’t problem if a cabin Crew didn’t give them many bottles of wine. They are drinking for three hours with 9 bottles for 3 girls. They are talked so loudly,drunk and the smell very bad.you know i couldn’t sleep but When They are asking for more wine and the cabin crew also give it for them, i cant belived it!!!. And another guy he want to enjoy with them and asked me to change a sit, i want to sleep and i though it will be better for me. But its not. They are talked more louder. And the problem is when they are getting drunk, the guy back to his sit and take something in his cabin, because he can not control his actions so some stuff from his bag drop down over my head also my body. I was mad but how should i do? Point at his face and tell something bad? Oh i can not. canbin crew just comes and say sorry with me. That is a bad flight that i ever had. You treat customers well but you should have a limit. Im so disappointed about my flight of that day. Thank you"
Pros: "Everything, hands down best flights I've ever hand, I'm flying Emirates every single opportunity i get moving forward"
Pros: "Great entertainment set up, a free hour of wifi and good food. The wifi was priced fairly. Overall, it was a pleasant flight that I even managed to go to sleep. I normally can't sleep on planes."

Cons: "The departure time should be more comfortable"
Pros: "On time and Crew was helpful otherwise"

Pros: "Bumped up to first class"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"

Pros: "Airbus 380 is my favorite plane; the entertainment selection was very good."
Cons: "Dinner featured a salad of potatoes and green beans and the entree included potatoes and green beans, a repetition that seemed odd. According to the printed menu, the passengers had a choice of lamb or chicken, but I only heard the flight attendant offering chicken - no mention of lamb. The food was much better on the Rome to Dubai leg of our trip, as was the service."
Pros: "Whole experience was poor"
Cons: "Passenger seated next to me was bigger than the seat could take the whole flight it was u uncomfortable for me to even move an inch He was a smoker and smelt really bad I was told the seat next to me would be empty There was no space for my bag as others brought more than 1 piece of luggage with them on board The toilets weren't checked it was wet and dirty throughout Usually I fly 2/4 times in 60 days with emirates but this was the worse experience I had things on my tray before landing the hostess rudely asked me to put it in the pocket ahead of me as she didn't want to take it from me which is what I had originally requested for On the outbound flight I think your net package by mistake charged me Twice ! I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"
Pros: "Food was ok. Boarding and check in was good too"
Cons: "The crew from kwt to Dubai was so cheap asking if u get a headset we don't hand out one :) funny but cheap..."

Cons: "Cannot specify dietary restrictions while checking as it was not enabled"
Pros: "The way they receive and the way they take care of passangers"
Cons: "The water served is not sufficient I felt that it would be more better to serve water bottles."

Pros: "Cordial staff and good food"
Cons: "Leg room and head phones did not work properly"
Pros: "Not much I liked at all for the rave I’ve been hearing."
Cons: "Crew needs attitude adjustments, as well as the whole aircraft could use a makeover - it’s completely outdated. Plus, the layover in Istanbul was horrible! There were people not wearing masks, and airport staff wasn’t even enforcing any safety even if they saw wrong things happening."
Pros: "Great service! Very safe flight!"
Cons: "Warmer food, maybe... but safety was great."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My seat wasn't working properly and wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "Cabin cree was helpful"
Cons: "Boarding need to be in order with back boarded first followed by front. Painful boarding at Houston and Istanbul both."
Pros: "Turkish continues to go above-and-beyond to provide all of its passengers with a quality experience. Meals were actually good (I opt for the Vegetarian offering) and Economy seats are perfectly fine."
Cons: "Both ground staff and inflight crews border on rude, but I choose to believe it's a cultural thing and not a corporate or personal failing. Really, it's a coldness more than anything. No warmth or empathy. Planes are showing their age, particularly in the seat monitors. Screens have dead zones with inoperative icons. Also, quite a few seats were literally falling apart. But, when you fly to more countries than any other airline, some wear-and-tear is to be expected."
Pros: "Probably best economy class service and amenities and timings."
Pros: "Service, professionalism"
Cons: "Food is good but very bland."
Pros: "The friendly people and the ease of flying alone so far away."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great"

Pros: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"
Cons: "Rude attendants, running out of food frequently, not getting options, intermittently working entertainment with poor choices."
Pros: "Lots of in flight entertainment options. Good meals. Very nice and helpful attendants."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat. Very narrow walk way to lavatory."
Cons: "After ordering Asian vegetarian meal, I got pasta. That was disappointing"
Pros: "They went above and beyond to ensure comfort"
Pros: "I like the food in the air craft it was good, but the crew seemed not wanting to speak inglish The are more willing to serve turkish speakers, They were not even able to solve seat problem. that I and my next seat guy decided to solve the issue by offering our seats to them so that they can sit together, the crew spoke poor english and we were held up by that seat problem, ask that crew member they will tell you what happend, After we gave up our saets to random girls who were also angry about turkish airline, we were able to take off for nairobi And yes the coffee store by the cafe nero and nearly all business refused to give us a wifi And turkish airport offers wifi to only those who have a turkish phone number that is so very low Shame on turkish airline for treating us the give us a free rides we are their bussiness and we will make sure that we stop giving our bussness It looks like they took their customers for granted and we will just tollered it but I will not and many people whom I know will not It is simply desaster... 0% service from the time you come to the airport untill boading time I had to ask about 5 deffrent men to tell me if where I was terminal. One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "That I heard great things about Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Staff at the gate and on the plane were rude. At the gate, I asked if there was an isle seat or an emergency row seat available (because I have long legs and long feet) and he said he would check and see. Well, he failed to inform me if any of the seats were available, so I sat in a window seat to Istanbul and a middle seat to Venice. I had to pay $160 for an extra bag to Venice. I asked if the airline allowed military members to check a third bag for free, I was laughed at, and told that US military members get charged more because we're not in the Turkish military. So as you can see, this trip started off horribly. My flight attendant seemed like she was having a horrible day because her attitude and customer service was bad."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The entertainment quite rich."
Cons: "Since the flight was very crowded, they didn't let me bring in the cabin my garment bag, I had to stuff it in the suitcase."
Pros: "Flights were on time; Crew was pleasant - asked for water and was provided in a minutes; Pilots were great, they have landed smoothly"

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Was late taking off"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "They gave us a meal on a 2.5 hour flight and we were very surprised!"
Cons: "They boarded late and you had to take a shuttle to the plan. We drove to the plane and waited for 15 minutes in the cramped shuttle while they were putting another staircase to the plane and finishing prepping it. We left a half an hour late and the flight was already at 10pm. It was a pretty terrible experience! And the section of the Istanbul airport we were in was pretty dirty. Also the movie they played had two language options but no English which was disappointing."
Cons: "Did not have as the flight to istanbul was cancelled and moved to alitalia"
Pros: "Great price, service, food"
Cons: "they just skipped me once to offer me a drink, but they were very nice when I requested it"
Cons: "Flight from Houston to Istanbul got delayed; Turkish Airlines representative confirmed that flight will catch up on time and I can reach my connecting flight on time, however changed my ticket for the connecting flight so I would leave Istanbul next day - without informing me about the change.Once I realized changed "date/time" in the ticket (VS what I booked) and complained about it, all Turkish Airline representatives were acting line they don't understand English...this is unacceptable. I ended up spending the night in the Airport."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "I was so cramped and I'm only 6'. My back has hurt for days after that flight."
Pros: "Nice attendants"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "The food!"
Cons: "Gate agents attitude and unwillingness to answer simple questions."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Food not what expected."
Pros: "As usual the Crew and the onboard flight experience were first rate. the food and service are top class. Friendly and the food the best in the industry I think, thank you once again for the great flight."
Cons: "The boarding experience was ciaos and terribly unorganized. I find it hard to believe that you have international flights to the US and you have to bus to the aircraft! The gate experience was horrid, there were no representatives to tell people what to do, then there were no signage and the general layout was garbage. No way to know business class entry from the economy. Many very disillusioned people and you probably lost customers because this was their first time THY experience. I have been a loyal customer for THY for a long time, love you airline and am a big fan, but was personally embarrassed for you. The flight made up for it but you need to fix this,"
Cons: "The crew was very rude and was not helpful at all."
Cons: "In addition to long delay before the aircraft was finally parked on the tarmac, passengers had to wait for more than 40 minutes before the checked bags were delivered. There was nobody from the ground crew to tell us the reason for the delay as passengers were just wondering about waiting for their luggage. This airline needs to know how to treat their passengers well."
Pros: "Punctual clean excellent service overall I'd like to add that accommodations were more than expected thank you for a enjoyable stay overnight in beautiful Istanbul"
Cons: "Meals were delicious and crew were kind and helpful"
Pros: "The meals and service were amazing and delicious!"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Food was ok. Seat was crowded. Everything else was excellent."
Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Nasty people"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and when finally boarded we had to get off the plane for a crew change and wait another hour. Then we sat on the runway for 45 minutes before we took off. Worst flight of my life."
Cons: "Use jet bridge instead of bus gate"
Cons: "Haven't made it there yet still in Lisbon and no way to make it to cruise ship on time."
Pros: "Really great"
Cons: "Need entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and the light snack provided terrible. No entertainment at all. The A319 is a horrible airplane: rather uncomfortable!"
Cons: "So many delays, no real info provided. When we had to stay overnight they didn’t mention it would take 4 hours to get our bags which actually never came. Airline industry sucks and deltas one of the worst."
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: "TAP airline didn’t charge me for a checked bag on my flight to Lisbon. On the way back to Rome I was met with blank faces and no options. They demanded the extra $70 for a checked bag. On my way to Rome, a group of students were yelling and crawling all over the seats and blocking the aisle. Worst"
Cons: "Full airline policies up front."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and room for pack pack under seats"
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: "Crew service was excellent, food even hetter"
Pros: "TAP serves edible cheese sandwiches. First time in years I eat plane food and don’t immediately regret it."
Cons: "I travel with an international carry-on designed to fit in comoartments above seats in any and all planes (Tumi alpha 2 International), and yet TAP would claim it was too large to fit and forced me to check it. My problem is not only the wait once we land, but most improtsntly that the bags are beat up in the journey. Indeed, my carry-on arrived with several scratches on the plastic edges as well as some signs of worn on the textile. Because of this carry-on baggage size restrictions, I will not fly TAP airlines again (unless I can travel with my hand purse only)."
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Missed, even on time at Lisbon"
Cons: "why do they sell their tickets when they know they can not make the connection? little time between the two flights compared to the functionality of the airport. never again TAP"
Cons: "Tap changed the times on my original flight from Portugal to Rome then changed the times from my first flight from Boston to Portugal making it impossible to connect from Portugal to Rome.both flights were tap airlines. We were charged 462.00 extra to take the next flight out 3hours later. We were charged twice for the same flight from Portugal to Rome. It was not our fault that we could not connect in Portugal, every other airlines would make resonable accommodations with out any extra charge. We both feel cheated by tap airlines and it made our vacation very stressful trying to resolve the double charge. It has not been resolved as of yet and we our very disappointed on how we were treated. can’t get anything other than the blame being passed around."
Pros: "Everything was great. No complaints, just an acknowledgement abt layovers and the time needed. Had an hour an a half layover but by the time you get on line to go thru customs n security again we were definitely cutting it close but that's TSA not the airline but the airline could have maybe added another maybe 20-25 mins to the layover. We felt like world travellers running for our connecting flight tho and we loved it! Lol!"
Cons: "Ground personnel one crew member in particular was unfriendly uncaring and unwilling to find a responsible resolution for the problem"
Pros: "Free food and drinks. Pillow and blanket and ear buds all ready on each seat! More spacious seating."
Cons: "No indication booking was discounted flight on kayak website! Charges for baggage very , very high!. Very bad border crossing as we waited in line for a simple passport stamp for 3 hours!!!!!!"
Cons: "We left 45 minutes late for a 3 am flight. In the middle of the night the priority is sleeping but we were awakened for food service at 5 am. Worst breakfast I’ve ever had too."
Pros: "Always the good attention."
Cons: "The delay of the flight without announcing it"
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential compared to the bad."
Cons: "My wife and I arrived to the airport for our honeymoon extremely excited. We had been saving for our trip to Italy for months, and we were finally going to get things started. Everything fell apart when we went to check in and we were told that my wife couldn’t use her ticket because she had changed her last name. We were told that there was no way that the name on the ticket could be changed because of TSA regulations. Of course, we were also told that we could have changed the name had we purchased a more expensive ticket. In other words, we were lied to and told the issue was regulation, when really they wouldn’t help us because we couldn’t afford a more expensive ticket. The only help we were given was the pleasure of paying over $1,500 more to get my wife on the flight. I am in the process of trying to get this refunded, but as of now we have paid twice for my wife to fly, and neither ticket has been refunded. We may have accidentally broken a rule, but the only function that rule seems to have is to make us pay twice for the same seat. As of now, I would never fly this airline again, and I would warn everyone away from it. I will update this post if TAP does the right thing by two honeymooners."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Chairs not reclinable in "green" section. What is this, a caste system?!?"
Pros: "The crew were kind and considerate."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever experienced. There was an incessant, loud high-pitched buzzing noise for the entire duration of the flight (we were seated in the very back row so it was particularly loud for us, but others further up said it was bad for them too). Also, we had straight turbulence for over two hours. I've never gotten sick on a plane before, and my husband never gets motion sickness, but we both threw up (and I think several others did, too). I don't blame the crew for any of this, as I know most, if not all, of it was out of their control. However, I would be very nervous to flight TAP again due to this experience."
Pros: "Wonderful customer service!!"
Pros: "New plane. Seats ok"
Cons: "Very long wait for boarding. Overcrowding of bus. Food insufficient and mediocre though business class"
Cons: "The terminals they use have no express lanes for biz travel. Very stressful particularly if short layover time."
Pros: "Seats are ok and good entertainment system"
Cons: "The attitude of the hostist and the way they dont give you food choices and don't even explain or say what food they are giving you. When i ask whats in this they gave me a look and a weird attitude"
Cons: "Bad system to board"
Pros: "Smooth and organized boarding process. Layover is a great option to explore lisbon."
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was just crappy all the way. New airplane...seats d ont recline."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Everything else was excellent."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on this flight"
Cons: "connecting flight but no entertainment, very cramped space"
Pros: "The trip was perfect. My bag does not think the same way."
Cons: "Everything was perfect until I receive my bag and notice that two (2) items were missing: my snorkeling face mask, and my camera's tripod. Who is responsible for this? How can I be happy with this?"
Pros: "Nice little snack, horrible coffee"
Pros: "The new Business Class is phenomenal! Best seats I've experienced in a Business Class thus far. Too bad the transatlantic flight from New York to Lisbon is too short to enjoy it longer."
Cons: "There is nothing that I did not like, other than that the flight duration was too short. ;-)"
Cons: "easy flight,"
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was terrible."
Cons: "I was so dissatisfied with the customer service and lack of help provided after a FULL and LARGE flight was cancelled to Lisbon (then ultimately to Rome for me). I would like a FULL refund for my flight plus my miles accredited to my account for the full trip to Rome."
Pros: "I had a flight from Madrid --> Lisbon airport with a final connection from Lisbon --> NYC JFK and we were delayed in Madrid therefore arriving at boarding time of our other flight in Lisbon. The crew was so professional and prepared that when we landed in Lisbon there was a bus that brought about 25 of us who were connecting with final destination to JFK to the closest door to go through passport control and board onto our flight to JFK that they held for a good 30-45 minutes until all of us made our connection. Very professional and organized. Much appreciated that I didn't miss my final connection! Love flying TAP and will continue to do so!"
Pros: "Service and crew were very friendly. Excellent!"
Pros: "We are still alive."
Cons: "Crew was rude, unhelpful, and the business class seats were essentially coach with the middle seat unoccupied. It was extremely uncomfortable and made worse by the crew being very impatient and not helpful when we had people in our seats, a 3-year-old we were trying to seat, and all of the overhead compartments closed so unclear where to place bags. Boarding began 20 min late and then we had to stand on the boarding ramp for another 20 min while the crew finished "cleaning" the aircraft."
Pros: "It was s a good value especially as a Star Alliance Gold flyer."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for sandwich snack."
Pros: "To be reimburesed for a flight I ended up having to book with Amex travel for the same day"
Cons: "An horrible policy that will steer m eaway from TAP airlines and kayak"
Cons: "ran very late"
Pros: "No frills short distance flight"
Pros: "Service, staff, food, airplanes."
Cons: "More variety of movies"
Cons: "Seat assignments sucked. Could not seat together"
Cons: "Delayed takeoff. That happens but very poor communication about the delay."
Pros: "Easy check in and easy baggage claim"
Cons: "They can easily work on the food"
Cons: "Plane boarded on time but then sat and waited for many more late people. Then we sat for 45 minutes and didn’t move."
Cons: "Better pillows...as simple as that"
Pros: "Seamless boarding, departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Very surly and unhappy looking crew"
Pros: "On time and complimentary drink"
Pros: "All was well but missed my bag and one opened"
Cons: "Missed my baggage and one was opened and wrapping removed"
Pros: "The flight itself was pleasant."
Cons: "The trip was apparently booked as a flight to Madrid with a one-night stopover in Milan and yet the ticketing staff told me that I would not be able to check my bag to Milan since it would go directly to Madrid. I found this to be very odd since I booked a multi-city flight through Kayak. I was also unable to use TSA pre-check with Alitalia, which was inconvenient."
Pros: "The staff was kind and helpful. The business class was good and the updrafts was really worth it"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor ."
Pros: "All good.."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight conditions; height and timing updates. Absence of screens, lack of technology. Not clear English announcements. Ignorance and arrogant attitude of hostess, I can tell because I'm veiled muslim. Change of gate with no notification or announcement. Not comfortable flight."
Cons: "They l lost my p partners lugage in Rome .. and now it has ruined her whole Holliday"
Cons: "Change of gate at BCN with no notification"
Cons: "Initial flight from London to Rome left late, so missed connecting flight to Johannesburg. Although we were put up in a hotel and got a flight next day, missed another connecting flight, which was with another flight company and had to pay again to get another flight. No apology from the airline for the inconvenience this caused. The travel to South Africa was for an emergency and ended up getting there two days later."
Pros: "nothing special"
Pros: "I liked very muche the flights time table."
Cons: "I have nothing to add hear."
Cons: "Alitalia and SkyTeam still can't figure out how to check luggage through on separately ticketed flights, even if both flights are the same airline."
Pros: "Ok ok."
Cons: "Our bag out of luggage was missing and more than 24 hours there was no action. We were left helpless as due to Easter everything was closed and could not arrange any alternative."
Pros: "Being able to chose my seats for free with the Millemiglia programme. The legroom was not bad."
Cons: "No hot drinks or food available to purchase inflight. The toilets were dirty and smelly."
Pros: "The easy transfer from incoming London flight to the connecting flight to Tirana without leaving the airside area of the terminal"
Cons: "Not being able to purchase any food, wine or hot drinks on board. It doesn't seem such a difficult or costly service and most other airlines appear to manage it."
Pros: "legroom and quick"
Pros: "They had drinks"
Cons: "My seats were changed to the rear end of the plane, not even a sandwich for snack.i had to empty my carry on luggage to 9kg ."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by over 1 hr , with no explanation fm the ground staff or on board"
Cons: "Horrible experience with Alitalia. They boarded us on a plane that had a wheel issue, and kept us on the ground for 2 hours before they decided to de-plane us. We then had to wait in a 5+ HOUR LINE to get rerouted (nope, they won't handle these issues online or over the phone, you have to wait in line). And THEN they wanted us to wait in a 2 hour line to re-drop off our bags. We got stuck overnight in Rome and were put in a horrible Hilton Garden Inn and barely made it in time to use our coupon for a "free meal" (aka, frozen meatballs and stale bread in a buffet that had been sitting out all night). On our flight back, the food was absolutely terrible, the movie selections were old and scarce, and the seats were uncomfortable. We called to complain as soon as we got home and still have not heard back from Alitalia. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Crew was ok.."
Cons: "Legroom inside the aircraft is too small. Salted and sweet snack options including cookies. This is on a two hour flight. Very uncomfortable journey"
Cons: "Lost our luggage from Rome to Malta. Now, 13 hours after arrival in Malta, no one can tell us where our luggage is!!"
Cons: "We paid for bags. Called to check the bags were included and on a technicality alitila charged for bags again. When we asked why, we were told this happens all the time. It seems alitila relays on this to rip of foreigners. This is despicable. This happened twice from two different booking companies and only with Alitalia. I will follow this up next week."
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "- Rude crew - Uncomfortable seats - Broken seats - Missed our order for Vegan meals"
Cons: "Delay! I missed my connection! Had to spend a night in Rome! Had to be late to work Monday morning."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and smooth"
Cons: "Food was substandard Leg space very crummy"
Cons: "I.m 6'2 and it was impossibly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Not much, but food was decent."
Cons: "Oldest plane I've seen in recent years, crew barely acknowledged our presence (talked to each other the whole time), no working air conditioning, and big metal boxes in front of the window seats that take up all of the leg room (yes these seats aren't cheaper."
Cons: "You lost my luggage!!!!!! Now I'm standing in a long line with other lost luggage people. Düsseldorf is not a large airport and there was ample connection time. Not the way I wanted to start my vacation. Instead of driving south now I'll be waiting at the airport all day On the flight the seat in front of me folded back all the way to my head! How does that happen?"
Cons: "The lost my suitcases"
Pros: "Initially I was a little worried because Alitalia had given us some disappointments in the past, but it was the most convenient flight this time for our final destination.We had to take 3 flights to arrive to our final destination, 2 with Alitalia.The crew was polite, helpful. We were very happy that for the first time Alitalia didn't loose our luggage(!) and we got it in Athens. Thank you!!!"
Pros: "My checked bag did not show up in Prague"
Cons: "90 minute delay on a 110 minute flight!"
Cons: "No room and very uncomfortable"
Cons: "My luggage was not loaded on the aircraft! I have NO clothes for a special event! Unacceptable!"
Cons: "Worst airline company ever. Lost my baggage for 4 days although a friend of mine on the exact same flight with me received his. I'm on a snowboarding trip and they lost all my gear and basically made it impossible to enjoy my vacation. I sent 3 emails and no one has contacted me yet! I agree that these things might occur but the airline has to take responsibility for their mistakes and address the issues. WORST airline I've been to, if you are thinking of using it I double insure everything and don't count on them to be responsive!"
Cons: "1. absolutely disorganized boarding, 20 minutes waiting for 3 relaxed passangers to join a crowded bus 2. absolutely disgusting business class, narrow seats, little space"
Cons: "There was some issue with checking in, there was a massive line and over an hour wait just for less than an hour flight.. there was zero communications as to what was happening and there were no staff attending priority queues"
Cons: "The boarding was chaos in both Munich and Rome. Apparently Al Italia had instituted a new computer system and the workers did not know how to use it. I spent hours on line getting a boarding pass in Munich, and then again another in Rome (in Munich no one was given boarding passes for connecting flights). I spend hours again in lines to get a boarding pass for a flight to Palermo, missing my connection and only getting a much later flight to Palermo. It was utter confusion. Shame on Al Italia."
Cons: "I CHECKED IN 24 HRS AS REQUESTED AN BOOKED SEATS FOR FLIGHT & CONNECTION BUT COUKDNT PRINT BOARDING CARD ONLY AT THE AIRPORT.AT THE DESK THE ALITALIA LADY TRIED FIRST TO USPELL MY SEATS FOR 400$, THE SHE SAID THAT I DID NOT COMPLETE CHECK IN SO SHE IS FINISHING IT BUT I HAVE A CONFIRMATION OF THE COMPLETE CHECK IN.THEN SHE CHANGED A FEW TIMES MY RESERVED SEATS (AND SOLD THEM )AND AT FOR THE TRANSFER FLIGHT SHE BOOKED THE SAME SEAT FOR ME AND MY WIFE AND WE CORRECTED IT IN ROME,,,VERY BAD BEHAVIOR!!!"
