Airline reviews

Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."

Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rude and inconsiderate - if you see that someone is sleeping, you don’t stand at their seat and lean on it and shake it while you’re waiting to give the security demo before take off."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Crew was rude to passengers. One passenger asked for extra bread and crew arrogantly commented , we dont give but ok take one."

Pros: "Coach seats were comfortable but if the person in front of you reclines, your video screen will be inches from your face and it becomes difficult to get out of your seat."
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly....almost downright rude at times"

Cons: "Only two options for dinner is very few options."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great and helped to pass the time. The food was good for airline food."
Cons: "The flight staff was just okay - they could have been friendlier. The seat cushions seemed old - they were comfortable enough for sitting but not comfortable to sleep."

Pros: "Everything was just dandy!"

Pros: "Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full."
Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."

Cons: "Chose the option with Swiss because it showed that a checked bag was included. Got to the airport and was told to pay up for each checked bag. Great start to the trip."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."

Cons: "Leg room was really bad in economy and the only upgrade option was to business for $10,000 so of course not affordable for the average person."

Cons: "When I purchased the ticket I did not know that I have to pay for my bag. It would have been nice to know about this in advance"

Cons: "Food is bad"

Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."

Pros: "crew are well trained"
Cons: "chicken dinner was not tasty at all"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The aircraft was horrible No space at all even after paying for a better seat"

Cons: "My special meal wasn’t available."

Pros: "The breakfast quiche was a pleasant surprise. Crew was very welcoming and professional."
Cons: "I was surprised to be charged for 1 piece of checked baggage. I was never informed I would be required to pay for 1 piece of checked baggage. I would have paid ahead of time, had I known. I tried to check-in online but was denied access to my ticket because Swiss Air thought I might be a robot. I kept following instructions for positive access but after about 10 attempts I quit. Very irritating!"

Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."

Cons: "Very little space- I thought I was in economy plus having paid extra for seat reservation. When person infrint put seat back it was very difficult to view screen"

Pros: "Captain kept us informed regarding takeoff"
Cons: "Sitting too long"

Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."

Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

Pros: "Not very much. At least the staff was friendly."
Cons: "It seems like they always sit me next to the bathrooms. If I'm paying that much for a flight, I don't really appreciate having hordes of people lined up for the bathroom, bumping me constantly. I also don't very much like the door constantly opening and closing, due to noise and the obvious smell. Furthermore, I sat next to a family with 2 screaming babies. Overall, 8 hours of agony. Not a good experience at all."

Pros: "Food, staff, service"
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "The whole experience was excellent didnt hv to wait long for luggage"
Cons: "Pressure to make connecting flight"

Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."

Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."

Pros: "Lots of movies."

Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, the planes clean, flights on time. The blankets were a very nice touch."
Cons: "On my first flight, I paid for use of wifi, but it kept kicking me off the connection. Repeatedly, the entire time. On the second flight, there was no option for wifi at all. It would have been nice to pay for wifi once for use all the way to my destination."

Pros: "Great entertainment options"
Cons: "No internet from Chicago to Iceland didn't help"

Pros: "Flight, once we got on one, was fine."
Cons: "The delay of the first leg from Chicago resulted in missing the Stockholm leg by minutes. They didn’t hold the plane, but told us if we ran, we might make it. The gate was closed when we got there. Also, apparently chicken sandwiches in Iceland contain shrimp, which I’m allergic to."

Cons: "Didn’t realize I was going to be charged $65.00 per suitcase. Checked three and that added$195.00 to my overall cost. The only thing we got on board was water everything else was a charge."

Pros: "Great company!"

Pros: "Good entertainment movies etc"
Cons: "Free food"

Cons: "It was very warm on the plane for the 6+ hours of flying, making it difficult to sleep or be comfortable."

Pros: "Everything was good for economy class."
Cons: "The first leg of our Iceland Air fight was delayed, but they didn't update the departure time until after it was obvious that the plane wasn't going to be there on time. So we hurried to the gate only to wait nearly an hour. I wish they had updated the departure time earlier."

Cons: "late departure, no assistance with short connection, crew on the plane and at the airport couldn't give us any information about where to go for our connecting flight, our luggage wasn't transferred and it took them more than 48 hours to get it to us."

Cons: "You could have told me ahead of time that it costs $95 to bring a suitcase on board"

Pros: "I like the short trip from Chicago to Oslo, it is the shortest trips out of all the airlines. Staff is sweet and helpful, seats comfortable, and prices are reasonable."
Cons: "I usually travel with airlines that serve dinner and a breakfast. Iceland air is the only one I have experienced not doing that. Entertainment is a little more sparse than other airlines, often I get the same movies and tv series episodes on my way back from my trip as I had going there."

Pros: "It was Delta Airlines"

Cons: "The first leg Chicago to Iceland was uncomfortable due to the seats for some reason. From Iceland to London seats were much more comfortable. Iceland employees are the most friendly and helpful airline people I have ever dealt with."

Cons: "Did not get the extra legroom we paid for, plane was awful hot and stuffy. Crew allowed 3 kids aged about 4 to 12 to literally run up and down the aisle, running into people and screaming."

Cons: "No attempt was made to get me to Munich once they knew the initial flight was delayed and there was no way to make my connection. Once in Rekyavik they did not enable me to reach my connecting flight."

Cons: "Don’t know"

Cons: "Will never fly Iceland air again. N Horrible customer service"

Pros: "Awesome flight crew."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "Most crew members were great except one was very sour."
Cons: "No room under the middle seat for a bag and feet barely fit. They forgot to give pre-ordered meal. Hot in our part of cabin but stewardess made and effort to fix it."

Cons: "I missed my flight because my flight into Chicago was delayed by 3 hours. I called Icelandairs customer service 7 hours before I missed my flight and told them the situation and they gave me the wrong information and gate number. Once I arrived in Chicago I couldn’t find anyone to help me at the airport and I was brushed off multiple times. After staying on hold all night long with icelandairs customer service I was hung up on. I ended up buying a completely new ticket and still haven’t been able to talk to a representative about it."

Cons: "That it said on my itinerary that I had economy class but then they still charged me $90 to check a bag. It didn’t say anywhere that my ticket was economy light. I would have bought my bag beforehand to save money but it was not clear at all."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Very comfortable plane and really enjoyed receiving the Iceland water bottle when boarding. Delicious! My husband and I are very tall so we enjoyed the spacious leg room."

Cons: "No meal service"

Pros: "Blanket and pillow already on chair. Pilots did an awesome job landing in a blizzard."
Cons: "No offer for headphones"

Pros: "We had a ton of space and it was so comfortable. I would fly with them everywhere I go if I could."
Cons: "Theres nothing I would say I “didn’t like”. Great experience."

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Poor poor poor customer service."

Pros: "Nothing out of ordinary that makes you guys stand out positively."
Cons: "I paid $440 for my ticket and additional $190 for my luggage. With over $600 worth of flight, l can’t even get a small free meal, not even a snack. That is bad. Any flight within United State, they would offer snacks, talkless of flight that is over 6 hrs. I will never fly Icelandair anymore."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flights are never on time. We had to run thru the Iceland terminal both going and coming back as none of their flights are on time and we had a 20 min connection..plus my mom is 91 years old and it was extremely hard to make our connecting flight both ways. I will never take this airline again!"

Cons: "Such a short connection time. 45 minutes does not allow for much margin of error."

Cons: "The experience was fine other than I was surprised for an international flight I had to buy food."

Pros: "Modern plane, comfortable seats had built-in headrests so bringing a travel pillow wasn't needed. I liked that they handed out bottles of water as you board. Free coffee, water, and juice, but otherwise you had to pay for snacks or anything else you might want."

Cons: "The people at the airport itself are some of the most rude people I have encountered in all of my travels. Throwing my tray back at me while I was putting my shoes in it and saying “it’s not done, take it”. She bruised my stomach because I tried to stop it and grab it, and dumped my stuff, including a now broken camera. Very unprofessional and not necessary."

Pros: "The lights were off from start to finish so we could sleep the entire way. No unnecessary announcements to annoy. Loved there was a pillow and blanket on all the seats and water as you boarded. I didn’t not eat or drink, so no comments there."
Cons: "Entertainment lacked options."

Pros: "Service seamless,"
Cons: "Seats not the most comfortable in the world, could not figure out entertainment, wifi did not work"

Pros: "Swiss air and Lufthansa are probably better than Icelandair"
Cons: "I barely made my flight because I was rebooked to an ealier! flight via Switzerland instead via Iceland and that only three hours prior to regular departure, and without any notification on my cellphone. If I had not been more than two hours early at the airport I'd miss my re-assigned flight because it was leaving more than an hour earlier than my original flight. In the meantime I still got messages that the flight via Iceland would be delayed (which could have mislead me thinking I might have even more time than I actually had). Due to the subsequent rush at check-in my bag got pulled out by TSA and arrived two days late at Frankfurt! Meanwhile I had to travel to France without clean clothes and medication."

Cons: "For the price food should be included"

Cons: "Ordered food off their website and wasn't given a meal."

Pros: "I saw a lot of bad reviews and got nervous, but I had no trouble at all. I only wish they served food..."

Cons: "Sisters bag arrived fine. Mine will not arrive until tomorrow."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Great touch screen on the seat & had a wide variety of movies to choose from."
Cons: "No 6 hour flight is that comfortable. Didn't get a chance to try any food (sleeping?)."

Pros: "Enjoyed travel videos about Iceland that you could watch before arriving."

Cons: "There wasn't any food or beverage service and the plane seemed very crowded. The seats were not comfortable- by the time we arrived in Iceland, my butt was quite sore."

Cons: "Missed connection by a minute and got delayed ten hours."

Pros: "In theory a short connection to the US"
Cons: "No food unless you pay Staff not very nice Transfer at Reykjavik airport"

Pros: "Water was nice, boarding was ok, seat wasn't too uncomfortable"
Cons: "No food"

Pros: "I could not fly. No return ticket on march 23, 2020. Justfly.com did not help me"

Cons: "Had about 30 people on our flight that was taking another TAP connecting flight - missed the gate by less than two minutes - did not hold the plane when they could have"

Pros: "Crew was great and very friendly, and helpful. Was in Business class so not much to complain about, although the headphones were not working properly."
Cons: "The boarding area in Lisbon is very congested and disorganized."

Pros: "It got us to our destination."
Cons: "Seats sucked. Screaming kids. Wouldn’t let us bring our carry-on for the last leg: Lisbon to Barcelona even though there was room."

Pros: "The crew was fabulous"
Cons: "We had a crying baby onboard for the entire flight. I found it difficult to sleep as a result but understand this was outside the control of the airline. A bit more legroom would have been nice but I booked economy so again that was on me."

Cons: "Ok, it's TAP, it's a bargain, but the "breakfast" was a pitiful piece of meat on a stale piece of bread"

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Worst accommodations for baggage on a international flight in my opinion.Pay for a bag is the best advice in my opinion this airline barley lets you bring anything with. Disgusting plane it was so dirty I took a shower after this flight and the amount of dust in the air was visible terrible"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "My baggage did not get delivered to the final destination, that could have been handled better."

Cons: "No complaints. Good flight. And we were surprised to get a snack pack on such a short trip."

Pros: "Great crew and good seat with enough space."
Cons: "Overall is fine !!!"

Pros: "Scam"
Cons: "Do not sell flight you are not able to manage. Shame"

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: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew service was excellent, food even hetter"

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Boarding slightly convoluted but ok"

Cons: "Very hot, gross food"

Cons: "2 hours late, problems with entertainment, bad service at chack-in"

Pros: "Everything from the custumer service, flight departure on time"
Cons: "Long waiting time for my connection flight but i booked it that way"

Pros: "My husband has a mobility scooter and they handled it better than American Airlines and we flew first class!!!"

Cons: "Slow delivery of bags in Lisbon"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to eat, not even paying."

Cons: "Crew was very sour faced, impolite and rude the whole time. Seats were way too packed"

Pros: "Excellent Service - pleasant flight - comfortable seats"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"

Cons: "The worst airline"

Pros: "The name on ticket had the wrong last name for second passenger and they were not helpful. Only solution was to purchase an additional ticket. Not part of my budget. Poor service from gotogate and TAP Portugal in Barcelona. Very upset and sad."

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."

Cons: "The flight to NY was so cold that I had to wear my winter coat and hat the entire time and I was still cold."

Cons: "Flight crew prohibited us from using FAA approved child seat on board despite airline regulations explicitly accepting FAA approval. Flight crew also refused to give any reason. Their communication was not curteous."

Pros: "Very gentle staff. Good food and service. And I will visit Lisbon next time."
Cons: "Too early in the morning. A better connection in Lis wil lhelp"

Pros: "I liked being able to exit the plane at the end of the flight"
Cons: "The seats were cramped and it’s upsetting how you can’t select your own. Flying overseas for 7 plus hours it’s best not to be sandwiched in between two strangers, some of which were vomiting the entire flight due to turbulence that the pilot announced would only be minor."

Pros: "Our flight was late, so we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona, but TAP had already rebooked us on a different flight and had boarding passes all printed out. Good Job."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Food and snacks were good. Very attentive crew."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Cons: "Rock hard seats. Surly stewardess. Mediocre to poor food."

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"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great, plane was clean, smooth flying, takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took us 1 hour even though we had already checked in online. hard, and narrow seats, needs more legroom for international travel, armrest between my wife and I was very wide and wouldn't go up all the way making it extremely uncomfortable for us on a flight from Miami to Portugal. My wife's seat didn't recline because it was broken. And to top it all off they lost one of our luggage tags because the lady in Miami tagged the bag with somebody else's name and destination on it. Still waiting to hear if I'm going to have my luggage for one year anniversary vacation....!"

Pros: "Everything else was excellent."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on this flight"

Pros: "Relatively comfortable business class. Food was good. Entertainment system easy to use."
Cons: "They totally screwed up boarding. We waited for about 20-30 minutes in line because they had not worked out the boarding logistics properly. Seat design does not permit an independent adjustment of the foot rest. Crew seemed a little indifferent to our presence; very few smiles."

Pros: "Seats were big and comfortable with lots of leg room."
Cons: "No entertainment on first 3 hr intra-Europe flight. Food was not good."

Cons: "My reservation was cancelled."

Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."

Cons: "We had to pay for a check in luggage fee. Then flight was delayed for about an hour. The gate number change so we had to keep on checking to see what gate it was to be. They keeping on changing the delayed time so it end up being nearly two hours before we got on the plane. I was very disappointed that we didn't get where we needed to be on time. Our hour and 45 minute flight end up just wasting time waiting for the plane. They could of at least refund our check in bag fee for the inconvenient."

Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Late arrival in Lisbon, missed our connecting flight to Munich."

Pros: "My flight was punctual, the seats are comfortable, steady take off and landing"
