Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby.

Cons: "I did not like that i was in the bulkhead and there was not sufficient overhead storage for us. The bin was only big enough for 1 backpack. 2 of the 3 of us in that row had to go 2 rows back to store our luggage. This is very inconvenient when deboarding because I have to wait for many others to pass before I get a chance to walk towards the back of the plane to get my luggage."

Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."

Pros: "Standard stuff"
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet.

Pros: "Great company!"
Cons: "My bag did not make my connection in Iceland and was not placed on a plane headed the same route on the same day over 3 hours later. It was delayed for over 24 hours and it took over 48 hours to receive my bag."
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: "This airline is the actual worst. Never taking it again."
Cons: "Such a short connection time. 45 minutes does not allow for much margin of error."
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."
Cons: "For the price food should be included"
Cons: "Ordered food off their website and wasn't given a meal."

Pros: "In theory a short connection to the US"
Cons: "No food unless you pay Staff not very nice Transfer at Reykjavik airport"
Cons: "Doing things on time seems to be a concept they don't grasp; boarding seems to happen at the time they state for departure (but that isn't what your ticket says). Explain to me how you can have all your big flights departing at the SAME TIME? Gates are close together for big flights with very little seating area so people are milling about confused about which line is which and not wanting to sit on the dirty floors."

Cons: "No meal"

Cons: "An entertainement digital tablet is available on demand. Nevertheless, the proposed films and music aim almost exclusivment Icelandic public"
Cons: "This is the first and the last time that I fly to Europe with a budget airline. To save themselves a few bucks, they made the experience much less pleasant than it could have been. What they sold as food on the airplane was pathetic. And the prices for the awful food at the airport in Reykjavik were outrageous and they were not even posted, so until you went to pay you didn't know that those two pieces of stale bread with a thin slice of ham cost more than $12. Things like these leave one with a very bad aftertaste. Not worth it."
Pros: "Uncomfortable plane."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "They were late. They didn't serve food. They lost my bag and rerouted me twice with an added connection. It was an awful experience."

Cons: "EVERYTHING..........................ALL TAP AIR PORTUGAL WAS A DISASTER"
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."
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: "We missed the flight by five minutes do to our connecting flight being late. We had mechanical issues, weather delays and an aborted landing in Miami."

Cons: "My baggage did not get delivered to the final destination, that could have been handled better."
Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "Everything was good"
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: "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."
Pros: "Great experience overall. The food was good and great selection of movies and TV shows."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Very professional, kind, and accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding check-in person was confusing. Anyone that didn't speak Spanish got in the wrong line. They didn't announce that there were two lines, one for A and one for B. So we were mistakenly directed to stand in the line for a Madrid flight, when we were going to Lisbon. They made the last minute call only in Spanish, so we all almost missed the flight. The landing was a bit rough with crosswinds."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Pros: "Luggage was delivered, although very slow to arrive at carrousel"
Cons: "Luggage fees were excessively higher. Paid €75 per checked in bag one way! This was because our tickets were “on sale” and didn’t include any checked in baggage."
Pros: "Nice crew, tasty snack, new plane with comfortable seats"
Cons: "Huge bag charge for anything over 8 kg! Sign said last call 40 min before flight when agent told us to check board 30 min before flight for gate assignment!"
Pros: "All except for service to handicapped."
Cons: "I mad reservation listing that I needed wheel chair assistance due to walking limitations. Upon flight arrival no service was provided not was it provided on my return trip."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to eat, not even paying."
Cons: "Never made this flight"
Cons: "I booked these tickets for my friends Jamal Wiggins and Anthony Maxwell and they are still Lisbon. They are still in Lisbon! Their flight, 1306, had been delayed for almost 6 hours. The gate keeps changing and they've been getting ther run around all day. No food vouchers. This is horrendous. I am here at Prague airport. We only have a few days here and now one day is gone. They should be reimbursed! We are paying 400 euros for hotel rooms that aren't even being used because of this delay."
Pros: "car rental service SIXT"
Cons: "having to check bags that we didn't on the way to Faro was annoying long line at entry (my husband and I used EU) but they made my mom and sister go in the other longer line this time we had to run for connecting flight and my mother is elderly"
Cons: "Half an hour late and waiting additional 15 minutes before being able to leave the aircraft"
Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Cons: "They were lying about a supposed compensation for denied boarding which was supposed to be handed out in Lisbon. I didn't expect this behavior from grown up people, and such a company in Europe. TAP should be excluded from star alliance."
Cons: "Our flight was DCA to Boston then to Lisbon, with similar return. Our return flight into Boston arrived early enough to allow us to get an earlier flight home but TAP customer service wasn't open until after the earlier flight departed. Also, Jet Blue, the domestic carrier, could not change our flight because it was booked through TAP."
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant, extremely helpful and stylish (the airline's choice for attire is clean with great usage of Portugal's national colors). Thank you for the enjoyable ride home."
Cons: "The sizing device is much smaller than it needs to be for carry on roller bags. My bag was forced to be checked by the ground crew on this Tap flight. My bag is a normal sized carry on bag that has always fit on all flights. There was plenty of space on the aircraft for it. The ground crew also let others on with larger bags so they dont even apply their policy in a consistent manner. I will do my best to avoid TAP from now on."
Pros: "There was one male steward who was not friendly at all.....I felt he was giving me bad looks....I felt uncomfortable."
Pros: "The plane was new, clean, and spacious. The staff was mostly helpful and friendly,"
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment or drink/food."
Cons: "Very poor check in!! We checked two bags when we went to the desk to get our boarding passes.....then when we were boarding the plane, I went through without a problem but my wife was flagged. we were informed that we now had to pay for our checked bags..both of us even though I had already been cleared. 70 dollars was needed...and so with our flight ready to leave we had to just about run 250 meters and then back 250 meters to catch our flight....we are in our 60's!!!!!. If we had to pay we should have been told at check in! and to make matters worse both of our checked bags are carryon size...we only checked them because we thought it would be convenient. Given that it was not our mistake that bag fee should have been waived....very poor customer service to people who have flown TAP many times........"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight."
Pros: "Free blanket, pillow, headphones, and wine! Flight was on time, no one weighed or measured carry on bags."
Cons: "Tight seats for an international flight!"
Cons: "TAP is the worst. I"d rather walk than book a flight with them."
Cons: "We experienced a 6 hour delay in Lisbon because there was no fuel available - terrible planning causing us to spend hours on the runway."
Cons: "It did not included luggage cost which means i had to pay additional cost. You SHOULD state it in booking pages (NOT LINK). If i knew it i would never use TAP. I found direct flight, cheaper. I want you to pay back."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. It hurt my back."
Pros: "My flight between Lisbon and New York was very comfortable. I've been flying mostly emirates lately, which is fantastic, so I didn't have high hopes but was pleasantly surprised! The food was good and the seats were very nice with plenty of leg room. I was also happy with the entertainment selection."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Sandwich served was a bit bleak but it was served with a glass of wine!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again."
Pros: "Timely check-in, on-time arrival, prompt disembarkation using 2nd stairway at back, courteous service."
Pros: "Service was excellent, amazing airline."
Pros: "Pleasant flight- crew was very friendly and helpful; they gave us extra water when we needed it- no attitude. The blankets and pillows were great and used throughout the flight! The movie selection was fantastic! The food was also very tasty!"
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit hectic because you had to go through an additional bag check at the gate and then some people still cut the lines and pushed their way to the front-- that was not managed so well."
Cons: "The pitch between seats was extremely narrow! It was impossible to pick up things that fall down on the floor when the next seat was reclined. The screen in the back of next seat row (my entertainment screen) does not have an adjustment making it difficult to view when the front passenger leans the back of his seat"
Pros: "The crew was absolutely great which jump started the flight. The food and all the available movies and games were great too."
Pros: "Good entertainment and the staff where quite nice and helpful. Not a bad value."
