Cons: "Quick and easy experience."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is a nightmare."
Pros: "We arrived only about an hour late?"
Cons: "We boarded late which seems to be the norm for Iceland air. Usually when an airline is a few minutes late departing they try and explain why and then make up the time, but we received no explanation for the late boarding, or the even later departure, or for why we lost even more time in the air."
Pros: "The attendants are all nice and efficient!"
Pros: "Entertainment center has newer releases"
Cons: "Extra baggage fee, no space for carry on, boarding zones 1st to 5th - no bin space within 5 rows by the time zone 5 boarded"
Pros: "Friendly staff and timely departure"
Pros: "We saw Greenland from the plane with the glacier, very nice! Comfortable plane!"
Cons: "The hostess we’re not friendly..."

Pros: "Decent movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster. We were late because icelandair had to put people on buses and shuttle them to the plane. But there weren't enough buses so we waited in the first bus for over half an hour until two more arrived in queue. We were all just standing there with no explanation. Then, they kept the plane extremely hot the whole flight. Very uncomfortable throughout. They clearly don't know what they are doing on icelandair."

It wasn't on the way over and it doesn't say anywhere on the ticket. To make things worse, none of the people at the counter were actually Iceland Air employee, so noone was able or willing to tell me anything about this (quote from employee "everything I tell you will be used against me" not sure if she was flippant or scared) Anyway, watch out for them screwing you over where they can"

Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and unorganized. Nobody got extra time if they needed it. From the gate we took a bus to the plane but just as we pulled up the crew was getting in. We sat on the bus for 30 minutes and nobody communicated what was going on. The flight was very choppy and a bit scary at times. There were no snacks. I was not impressed at all."
Pros: "The crew were kind, attentive, and pleasant. The leg room was appreciated"

Pros: "Good crew. No crying or screaming children is always good. Dinner was decent & nice that it comes with a glass of wine if you wish."
Cons: "Packed in a sardine can for 9 hours is not fun. Being bussed out to a remote location for a wide bodied plane is crazy. At least at ORD we had a gate."
Pros: "The aircraft was relatively new and well appointed."
Cons: "Service with a frown by half the staff. Took away headphones that I had stowed aside for a later time while taking a nap and gave it to another passenger - on a long haul business class flight. Poor service culture.

Cons: "Hand luggage weighing queue delayed flight, Gatwick flights delays, missing luggage at Lisbon,"

Pros: "The crew was nice in the cabin."
Cons: "The Check in people were insanely rude. They made me pay 50 Euro for my carryon. The size was fine but it weighed more than 7 kilo. There was no problem outbound and plenty of people had bigger carryons"
Pros: "crew was so very helpful. Food was surprisingly good"
Pros: "A short but very pleasant flight and food was served, excellent in every category."

Pros: "You can charge your devices (only in one plains from London to Portugal)"
Cons: "Cabin crew were far from welcoming when dealing with the African passengers (including me though I'm Spanish) the food was a disgrace On a 5 hour flight to Accra there was no entrainment, the chairs were incredibly uncomfortable and you could not even charge your devices... The food arrive way too early. I believe the airline has put less of an effort on these planes due to the nature of the passengers... I have been traveling for 20 years and I never felt so disappointed by an airline... I will not use this airline ever again"
Cons: "Stuardes don't have a sense of what costumer service is.. 6 hour flights and their plain aren't equipt with monitors to watch and entertain yourself Thank God I understood portugués but their translation to English was poor Food was not amazing I've been traveling since I was 6yrs old and I never felt so strongly about an airline... Not even easy jet"
Cons: "No vegan food options. Filthy toilet"
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: "It was a very short flight, so non-reclining seats were not a problem. They also seemed a nice distance from the seat in front, so there was no problem of having the person in front basically in your lap."
Cons: "They handed out a small biscuit which made me expect water or coffee to have with it. This is not the case."
Cons: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."
Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Cons: "I had an awful experience. A flight attendant named Comissário Bruno denied me a second dessert when I asked for one. I was flying business class on flight TP059 on March 4 2018 and have Gold status on Star Alliance. Many passengers had declined dessert and I felt extremely embarrassed by having been denied food on a plane for the first time in my life. The attitude and lack of tact of Comissario Bruno on TP059 spoiled the whole flight experience for me."
Cons: "This event refers to my TAP flight from Lisbon to Heathrow on 21-Jan-2018. We arrived to the airport nearly 2 hours before departure time, waited 35min in the security checks and my girlfriend was held 20min in the passport control. While she was queuing for the 2no police officers to check her passport, an airport assistant came to the queue and asked who was due to board in TP364 to Heathrow. She was made aware that my girlfriend was there due to board that flight. In the meantime I made my way to the gate to make the gate assistants aware that she was held in the passport checks and was already on her way to the gate. Having said that, the zealous assistants in the gate have closed the gate in front of me, 18min before scheduled departure time and - "very kindly" - told me that I wouldn't be boarding that flight anymore even though my girlfriend have arrived in the meantime. One can imagine the frustration I felt finding out that the flight departure was delayed and that the flight actually departed 40min late. At that time I was already suffering the extortion of the customer service from TAP, claiming from me circa 400Eur from each of us for a one way ticket in the next flight to London. Therefore... until I remember this... I AM NOT FLYING TAP ANYMORE... I am very proud of being Portuguese but in similar situations that occurred with me flying British Airways, Lufthansa or Air Italia, I have always been treated with much more respect and customer care!"
Pros: "Though it was a short flight, they did offer food and left mine on my table since I was sleeping. I woke up super thirsty and hungry so that was a nice surprise."
Cons: "TAP is perpetually delayed. It’s annoying."
Cons: "Flight to LIS was delayed 2.5 hours, missed BCN flight. I was given a new flight, but boardng pass was canceled at gate. I'm stranded!"
Pros: "Flight on time and safe Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Cramped seating Boarding dreadfully slow"
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"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "No issues, short trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "Well done...when other airlines offer nothing!"
Cons: "Slight delay in boarding... but arrived on time"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight, losted the baggage and couldn't help to resolve the problem. They also lied about the flight they wanted to replace to solve the problem which even didn't exist in their company. So, I will never ever take the flight from this compound again."
Pros: "I was able to easily store my carryon which is the maximum size you can bring in the overhead compartment and store my large zippered bag underneath the seat with still plenty of space for my legs."
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational."
Pros: "Successfully landed"
Cons: "2.5 hours in line to check in with the one agent working if you were not a gold whatever member. The same agent was at the gate taking tickets loading a single bus up at a time while everybody waited for the same bus to return to be reloaded. Ended up leaving an hour late due to being unable to load people on the plane, then a ground crew issue with loading bags extended the delay. No food service and voucher was given to cafeteria on exact opposite side and floor of airport. only reason we were able to use was because of the huge delays and problems trying to load the airplane. After the safety demonstration the flight attendants went to rear of plane and sat down in their jump seats for rest of flight. People were approaching them asking for water otherwise they ignored us. After landing stairs were used at rear of plane and door was opened. As we were two rows from the rear my girlfriend asked the male attendant 4 times if we were allowed to use the rear stairs as we were bus loading anyways, he never answered, looked at or acknowledged her speaking to him, he just stood at rear of the aisle ( 3.5 feet away) adjusting his tie and flattening his jacket sleeves. Was very awkward."
Cons: "They kept us all day in the airport t to then tell us at 7pm that the flight wouldnt actually leave that day."
