Pros: "Good price , good career"

Cons: "Nada de entretenimiento, nada"

Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge.

Pros: "The air hostess were ok."

Cons: "After dinner, icecreme was served in Dixie cups to some passengers but not to me. Flight attendant seemed aloof."

This was efficiently done...but notice about bags being taken off roundabout would help.I thought it was a tour groups's and did not search for my missing bag ...Young woman in the Air linguis Dublin baggage office sweet and patient ...give her a raise."

Pros: "Not much to tell."

Cons: "Aer Lingus are always late departing, but it was a blessing this time as I'd have missed the connection otherwise!"

Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"

Pros: "On board staff is very nice."
Cons: "Ticket counter agent at SFO placed wrong tag on suitcase. This created lost luggage 4 four days. Boarding gate time posted on boarding pass from DUBto SFO as gate closing at 10:25 am when flight left at 12:30pm. We ran to gate to be told the gate won’t open for boarding until 11:40. While at DUB going to LHR none of the Aer Lingus staff told us we were to go to British Airways terminal until we got to counter. Why couldn’t there be advance notice?Aer Lingus is lame. This was my first & last time I fly Aer Lingus."

Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Last persons rubbish left in Seat pockets"

Cons: "Reservations"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight even though little floor space."
Cons: "Small seats. Not much legroom."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."

Cons: "Professional staff"

Pros: "Everything went surprisingly smooth. Coffee was good, but had to pay for it"
Cons: "Didn't try the food"

Pros: "Crew was very responsive."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, miserable seats with no space"

Pros: "Not much!"

Cons: "It was too warm. The air above was not cool"

Pros: "Crew and food were amazing."
Cons: "It was perfect."

Cons: "The cabin crew was rude—I couldn’t have a quiet conversation without being shushed."

Pros: "The movies were good"
Cons: "Very little legroom"

Cons: "We were all stressed that we would not make our connection but the crew claimed they held flights for all 189 passengers connecting."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding with very long delay, waiting in bus."

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: "The plane was comfortable"
Cons: "No snacks included"

Pros: "Crew seemed okay comparatively to other airlines/crews."
Cons: "airport delays up to 2 hours, not knowing which gate and changing it all the time in Reykjavik, seating was hyper cramped, no food to compensate for the extra long trip, my carry on was taken from me even though it easily fit in overhead (it's a legal size duffel bag). I was exhausted after spending well over 14 hours in airports and 2 planes from Paris to DC."

Pros: "the plane and crew"
Cons: "the chaos at KEV"

Cons: "Didn't even know there was a ticket of this type. It was a good price, but when I went to check in on the return flight I was charged ~ $95 for a luggage item. Not a bad trick. On the other hand, not very nice either. They also didn't allow to take the guitar on-board due to a short & full flight saying the above part was too small. When I got on however, there was clearly room there. It could have been human error, but still disappointing nonetheless. They said there would be no track so it should safe, which it was, but it was left out in the rain for a minute or two so the soft case was somewhat wet. I don't think any permanent damage occurred."

Pros: "We were rebooked via Frankfurt to Washington via Lufthansa"

Cons: "no one ever gave us info on chg of plane,rushed special needs help to other end of airport and waited over an hour without explanation."

Pros: "Spacious and great service. I will fly Icelandic again."

Pros: "Inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "No inflight meals"

Pros: "Comfortable sesting"
Cons: "Crew not too friendly"

Cons: "Icelandair changed our scheduled flight’s airplane to a larger airplane to support stranded passengers from other flights. This was a good move for other passengers, but not for us. When they did this, the split my husband and I up by 10 rows! We were booked together on the same booking! We called the airline to fix this, but they refused because we booked through Kayak. We found a very nice counter agent at the airport who was able to move us to the back of the plane together. It is important to note that if you are in the front of the plane, you do not need to preorder food in order to insure that you get the meal you want. We flew Icelandair previously, and it was good experience. Since we did not know about the seat move, we didn’t preorder food for the 6+ hour flight. By the time they got to the back, they were out of nearly everything. We are unsure if Icelandair will be our choice next time we go back to Iceland. We appreciate their work to fix the other’s travel issues, however they missed the little details that could have wowed all of the passengers."

Pros: "The lights in the cabin were great set up to look like the Aurora"
Cons: "Offered 1 drink and no snack. Rarely do you see the crew on their flights"

Pros: "seats had decent leg room very pleasant cabin crew kept informed by the captain"
Cons: "single, crowded line for boarding. why not board the back of the plane first? no classical music selection--very good for blocking out noise. left and arrived 20 min late"

Cons: "IDEM"

Pros: "Plane was on time/even ahead of time, though we were late leaving due to waiting for connections - for which I was grateful, as we landed from Geneva 5 minutes before we were due to start boarding and had a certain distance to cover, plus long lines for passport control. Crew were courteous and drinks were offered twice. Like the water offered as you board as well."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed rather chaotic to me. Everyone lined up. you were supposed to scan your ticket, but it didn't work for a number of people, who then had to go to an attendant to get checked. In the end, we all got on, however! I might have watched a movie if I'd known to bring my own head set. Wasn't up for buying one, which was the alternative. Couldn't listen to music either. But I read a lot and dozed."

Pros: "the plane waited for late connecting flights (including mine)"

Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Staff was very nice and I loved that I actually didn't' have to pay for luggage. I was also offered a free drink."

Pros: "I appreciated the courteousness of the crew and the fact that they were willing to reseat us when there was a screaming child behind us"
Cons: "We were really rushed through Passport control in Reykjavik. A longer layover would have been much better."

Cons: "Not enough time to grab a bite to eat during layover!"

Cons: "One of three checked bags did not arrive on time."

Cons: "In Iceland you had to board the plane from the tarmac"

Pros: "Ticket prices were almost half of what the other carriers had available at the time I purchased. The crew were very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight. Food options during the flight required a purchase. Serving sizes for most items were small and expensive. I did not see an option to preorder. Despite the passenger makeup being mainly English-speakers all announcements were made first in Icelandic and then in English. Boarding at Reykjavik was a free for all, which caused delays getting to our seat due to all the inconsiderate people who got on early and filled up the overhead bins."

Pros: "cost of ticket"
Cons: "hate to think what it would be like making the connections in the winter! Iceland is called Iceland for a reason."

Pros: "They give you toys and food for you children at no extra cost. In flight entertainment was good for adults and kids for no cost."
Cons: "Older aircraft: poor cooling, dry air, relatively uncomfortable."

Pros: "Excellnt service, fast boarding, great communication"
Cons: "Took a while to take off,"

Pros: "The on flight crew was great!"
Cons: "My bag did not make it to the destination and when I went to file the claim, they insisted I double check before they would file the claim."

Pros: "Iceland Air is a pretty great option if you are traveling to Iceland or doing one of the stopover trips. I loved that you get two free checked bags. It just makes the whole experience so much easier. And for less than the price of a lot of domestic flights, you can jump on the plane to Iceland. The seats all have touch screen TVs, so there were a bunch of entertainment options. Overall, pretty great."
Cons: "The boarding experience at KEF wasn't ideal. They have a small queue area to line up before boarding, but it only had room for about 1/8th of the passengers. So then it meant that a lot of people were lined up and crowded around the boarding area, which had very few seats. We were then put on a bus and taken to the plane. It all seemed pretty haphazard. Clearly, not a deal-breaker. But not an ideal final memory of the trip either."

Cons: "My husbands screen didn't work and couldn't be fixed. For boarding, there was never an announcement and seemed unorganized"

Pros: "I was worried due to the negative reviews about the airline , but the flight was on time, the cabin comfortable, the crew friendly, and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't serve a meal or man the flight, but that's what you get when flying a low cost carrier. No frills."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable."

Pros: "Nothing really,"
Cons: "Will never trave will icelandair again"

Cons: "No food was served and this was an international flight! Not even crackers or peanuts. I wish this fact was made clear when I initially purchased the tickets."

Cons: "When we arrived at Keflavik airport the terminal was immensely crowded with several flights due to leave the US at once. It was overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable and there was a 30min+ wait to buy food from the only shop. As a result we did not have time to grab a bite to eat between flights. My partner was subjected to additional TSA checks which I am aware is a random check and a nescessity but due to the amount of flights departing for the US this took an extra hour, and delayed our flight. I'm thankful that Iceland Air didn't leave without us but it was an immensely stressful experience that I don't wish to go through again."

Pros: "Generally well run and a pleasant experience."

Cons: "The waiting area in the Reykjavik airport seems to be the main hallway between numerous gates. There is not enough sitting area for passengers waiting for connections, and there was at least one other flight departing from a nearby gate at the same time as ours. This meant many folks had to stand or sit on the floor while waiting for their connection. We could not hear the boarding announcements at all, and it seemed the boarding agents just started letting on the people who were closest to the gate, instead of boarding from the rear of the plane first."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Entertainment very good - lots of good movies that I had not seen. I love that there was not an extra charge. The service on the flight was good."
Cons: "The boarding process in Reykjavik was just awful. First we had no warning that Gate D would require such an extensive wait, so we spent too long in terminal eating and then panicked that we might miss our flight. Next there was a problem boarding our plane. There weren't enough buses, so we spent over an hour standing in a cramped line that snaked down the hall in an extremely crowded airport with people trying to squeeze though us. It was really uncomfortable. The worst was the crew waited to process people and send them in to the waiting area until a bus arrived, so this added to the wait time. I think tourism is popular in Iceland now and you all need to figure out how to make your systems better. I loved Iceland but I wold seriously need to think hard before booking another flight with you."

Cons: "Lost my luggage. Contact number does not work. Complete frustration. Recommend carry-on only"

Pros: "The planes were fairly comfortable, the staff great, and individual tvs good."
Cons: "Almost two hours late leaving MSP.Luggage did not get to London until two days after we did."

Cons: "Small seats, connecting and normal flight were delayed. Food and drinks were expensive. Uncomfortable seating for a long duration flight (6 hrs)"

Pros: "The Reykjavik airport is not well suited to board so many flights at the same time. The terminal was crowded and boarding was chaos."

Pros: "The best aspect was the high quality and well considered children's entertainment pack. Lovely sticker albums and puzzles, as well as a cosy blanket that turns into a back pack"
Cons: "It's a shame that food is not included in the flight. The flight wasn't cheap or low cost, but for a long haul transatlantic airline to not provide food makes it feel budget"

Pros: "Crew members were very friendly and checked our bags for free."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking by row segments causes more delays and doesn’t do much to avoid contact with other people."

Pros: "Very pleasant and helpful crew"
Cons: "Improved seating comfort, leg barrier or something"

Pros: "I like everything."

Cons: "Great"

Cons: "Left Washington two hours late. Left London on return 45 minutes late."

Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Hot atmosphere inside the aircraft during flight"

Pros: "Got a baby cot, offered wine for dinner and arrived 20 mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "Service and Care with sense of humor! I have sat in both business and economy, and while I prefer the room in business, I still feel the service is just as wonderful in economy. I got all I asked for including bubbly in economy! I like to stay awake on the way back to the US and asked for two coffee's and a bubbly, a ginger and an OJ just before dinner & refills on cafe. Of course I thought I was pushing it to ask for it all at once, but they laughed, proceeded to fill my wishes and with a good sense of humor asked If I wanted anything else! I actually got everything I asked for! Super!"
Cons: "I pre bought my seat and chose an aisle. The plane was changed and I ended up in a window seat within the same row I had chosen on the other plane lay out. I prefer the aisle as I like to get up a lot and hate to annoy others who may prefer not to get up every time I do. I was lucky that the flight had plenty of empty seats and was able to move to an aisle after asking. What happens on a full flight? I would have been really upset. What is the point of pre-booking one' s seat? If the plane is changed, BA ought to take care to make sure a pre-booked seat gets a window/aisle near the row they chose. I suspect that is more important than the row on a long flight."

Pros: "The crew looked after us really well."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the crew, the water supply on the aircraft was contaminated and there were no hot drinks."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful when needed. Excellent choice of movies/entertainment (for my personal taste). Overall a pleasant, smooth 7 hour flight."
Cons: "Food was as decent as an airline meal can get. Seats were as comfortable as an economy class seat can get."

Pros: "Did not watch entertainment. Tried to nap."
Cons: "Blankets felt very worn and crusty."

Cons: "Snacks were good!"

Pros: "It’s was very good thanks"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "There were only two kind of entres, and both had possible allergenic items for someone allergic to nuts."
Cons: "I suggest either have three choices or whenever nuts are sugggested have one with, and another without."

Pros: "He was courteous, highly efficient and kind. Also, Captain J. Cook made a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Bread could be more defrost or warm. But cold bread seems a common thing on airlines."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, especially when having to deal with a difficult passenger throughout the duration of the flight."
Cons: "There was a delay which inconvenienced a friend picking me up. Also, not a complaint, but I have experienced better video entertainment technology. But it's still amazing I get to watch movies while traveling in the air from one continent to another continent."

Cons: "I tried watching movies. However, the movie would start fast forwarding itself and skipping to the end without anyone or anything touching the screen or armrest. It happened multiple times and the crew reset my monitor twice before it started working properly. Towards the very end of my flight it started happening again. Very frustrating for such a long flight."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Poor food options"

Pros: "Reached Home"
Cons: "No Proper servings Entertainment was poor Beverages were not adequate Seats were narrow"

Pros: "The plane, that is. Seats are small in economy. The plane was hot. And we spent an hour on the runway with no air for a mechanical issue. At least the service was nice."
Cons: "Time on runway. Seats uncomfortable. Entertainment is old and small screens - hard to see."

Pros: "On flight entertainment"
Cons: "After we boarded, there was an announcement stating that there was an issue with one of the wings. So we sat for an hour and a half in an extremely warm plane while they fixed the problem."

Pros: "Seats to close. To small. When reclined they impact the seat behind more then they should. I carried my wifes carry on and they tried to place a yellow sticker on the second one saying it could not go in the overhead and would have to be placed under the seat or checkedm. Never believed it was my wifes Very aggraviting"
Cons: "Offer larger seats like United Airlines. For a few dollars you can upgrade economy to economy plus which offere 6 inches more leg room."

Pros: "Great service on plane"
Cons: "A lot of stress: our 1st leg IAD to Dublin was cancelled, than we got 2 set of tickets rebooked. On the way back there was a stress since we had a "problem with the ticket" Apparently the Aer Lingus made all those mistakes. In London I was told to go to the end of line 2 times, the BA employee was olaying really weird games. Pretty annoying."

Pros: "Back seat entertainment and pleasant staff."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "Really comfortable"

Pros: "Service here was above standard"
Cons: "The food is small & needs more variety"

Pros: "After my last experience with WOW from Baltimore to Amsterdam, which was easily my worst flying experience, British Airways was just the opposite. On time, comfortable seats, polite and very helpful flight attendants, and I did not have to pay 2 Euros just for a glass of water. I will fly British Airways again."

Pros: "Everything was perfect."

Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "I had requested a wheelchair and never got one either way. Slowly but I walked it! Thank god I was not completely disabled."

Pros: "staff was pleasant left on time arrived early"
Cons: "all the wasted cups. etc paying for seats"

Pros: "British Airways makes you pay extra to pick your seat The alternative is to take the luck of the draw and hope you don't get the middle on the center aisle Kind of annoying"

Pros: "Sense of Urgency of Keeping Flights on Time"
Cons: "London Security :("

Pros: "It was great to be upgraded!"

Pros: "My flight connection to Heathrow from Milan was 2 hours late. The staff at British Airways met me at the gate and escorted me to my connecting flight which was boarding at the time. I would not have made the connection if I had not had expess connection service"

Pros: "The flight itself went smoothly despite some windy conditions, and we were transported in one piece, without incident, from LHR to IAD. The crew members were pleasant in conversation and reasonable in frequency of food service. Once, when I pressed the attendant button, one of them came quickly to ask me what the problem was, and that kind of responsiveness is always a plus, in my opinion. The seats reclined a reasonable amount, not the mere 2-5 cm one sometimes experiences lately."
Cons: "The aircraft was aging at least a bit, and it was clear because my seat almost would not return to the upright position and stay there. Several times I tried to return it to upright as the end of the flight neared, and it would easily move but would return to reclined once I leaned back. It was as if I had been the whole time keeping my finger on the button that makes the seat movable. After I'd about given up, the seat finally stayed upright even when I put my weight back on it. My flight attendant misunderstood my drink request, but I let it go because the result was close to what I had asked for. It could have been that there was too much background noise - not sure."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Ancient plane. Terrible seats. No space or padding. Horrid entertainment system from 15 yrs ago, dysfunctional. Definitely one of my worse experiences flying back and I do this leg 10-15 per year. Boarding was oddly disorganized for a BA flight."

Pros: "Beautiful plane. Wonderful service. Even landed 30 minutes early. I cannot say enough good things about BA."
Cons: "Missed the second meal."

Pros: "The crew were excellent -- some of the best. Power and USB connection."
Cons: "How can you have travelers stuck in an airplane for so many hours and not have wifi?"

Pros: "Professionalism of staff"
Cons: "Boarding system"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1.5 hours"

Pros: "Crew was great. Really terrific. A+ all around. And that was consistent on all legs of the trip. But they couldn't fix this particular plane."
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo. Took forever. Not enough information shared. Everyone lined up for priority, whether had status or not. Once I got on the plane, the seats were AWFUL - the worst I've ever experienced. The pitch between them impossible. When passenger in front put his seat back, was practically in my throat. Couldn't lift the armrests completely, which was ridiculous. Even with an empty seat between myself and row-mate, we were cramped and couldn't get comfortable bcse of arm rests. Absolutely awful. Cannot imagine how much worse it would have been if seat in middle taken."

Cons: "Not loaded by rows, not organized."

Cons: "Cramped seating."

Cons: "person in seat reclined and their seat hit my knees and was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Crew was okay. Boarding was okay."
Cons: "Food was not great. Snack was a candy bar? No other options in back of the plane. Entertainment cut out and the system was difficult to operate and movie variety was not wonderful."

Pros: "Archibald Elba"

Pros: "The flight crew were all very courteous and helpful throughout the entire flight. They made the entire trip as comfortable as possible."

Cons: "Quality of your business seats leaves questions. I have never managed to find a comfortable rest on TAP business seats. May be good to compare with other major airlines."

Pros: "The on-board entertainment"
Cons: "More food, more water"

Pros: "nothing - they misinformed me left and right so I couldnt make properly informed decisions and then denied me boarding and told me to pay for a new flight after having spent over 750 and 3 days 2 nights at the airport due to the mishaps."
Cons: "staff that gives the correct information so u can properly plan for the check in and boarding procedures and compassion to advocate to let me onto the flight they made me jump thru hoops just to get onto."

Pros: "It was Okay"
Cons: "I m disappointed with the online deal I have booked my self with two checked bags & paid extra for that but I had to pay £ 80/-"

Pros: "usb Power"
Cons: "The seat padding needs to be improved."

Cons: "Grab business class upgrade offer - worth every penny."

Pros: "Crew was great and seats had footrests."
Cons: "Very old plane with outdated entertainment system and no power outlets. Had to take bus to plane, we repeatedly lined up for boarding only to have our flight delayed again and again."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "The process for getting ready to board was a little chaotic"

Cons: "Boarding process was in fact dangerous, with people corralled into small spaces without letting them out on the other end. We felt claustrophobic, crushed, and at one point people were even having to jump over the escalator to the bus loading area because there was too much crowding. Dangerous"

Pros: "Nothing, I tried to cancel the reservation 3 days after I made it and couldn’t even get a percentage back. What a waste."
Cons: "Let me cancel the flight for a percentage back so I didn’t have to waste the entire price of the flight for a ticket I couldn’t use."

Cons: "They turned the air conditioner to a higher temp to accommodate a few complaints and the rest of us suffered. First and cabin crew had it at a refreshing temp . For the last 20 minutes of the flight they turned it down again. To late"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Coordination between connection flight"

Cons: "Too late with delay"

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

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew and on time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "The Airbus 330 is onder Verizon with classic beats with less place and pedals. Also the personal screens are far outdated"

Pros: "Really spacious, clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Good service but not top of the line "go out of their way" service"

Pros: "A short but very pleasant flight and food was served, excellent in every category."
Cons: "Nothing, it was the best short flight I've ever had. The staff were very attentive and did a great job of keeping everyone happy."

Pros: "the crew was very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The Lisbon airport could have more places with working electrical plugs or USB ports in order to charge devices while waiting for your flight."

Pros: "We were lucky that the flight was not full, more space and comfort. Our special meals ordered in advance were provided how ever a little limited Flight was generally smooth and we arrived earlier than scheduled even though we have left later than scheduled. Great service. New, Clean and comfortable aircraft The process while in transit at Lomé was fast and simple."
Cons: "The fasten seatbelt was constantantly on (not only while in turbulence) Though we had two full rows available for us, the seat handles could not be lifted; hence the full row could not be utilized... No entertainment at all. This can be advised ahead for you to come with adequate tablet."

Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."

Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people. The food is better last year. Is good."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."

Cons: "I was rerouted to Madrid and did not have the correct timely information to cancel and rebook or to get a credit toward a future flight. There was no clear item on line to be used for my problem."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Paid thousands of dollars for this trip and my luggage is missing as tap Portugal convinently lost it."

Pros: "Everything was going well. Confotable seats lovely air hostesses. Food wasn’t so great but I was surprised we even got something!"
Cons: "Unfortunately I had problems at airport security which wasn’t very pleasant!"

Cons: "The long delay, more than 1.5 hours."

Pros: "The crew and passengers were in a great mood on a Saturday night flight feom Orly to LIS"
Cons: "There were papers and debris from previous flight still on the floor. Clearly they did not vacuum. If yoy want piece and quiet, this is not thw late flight for you."

Cons: "The marked delay"

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"

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."

Pros: "Food was abundant and pretty good. I paid $91.95 US (think it was 75 euro) for the exit row and felt this was money well spent."
Cons: "They charged me $90 for my luggage. Several weeks or perhaps even months after I booked, I received an e-mail saying I had booked Super Cheap Economy or some such. It had a link to pay for 'additional services' but not luggage. At the time of booking, I checked and the price given was $35. So, I have protested the additional $55 with my CC company and will see what happens. BTW the luggage was not overweight. They turned off all the lights, including my personal reading lamp, so I could not read and had to just sit there doing nothing. That really blew big chunks. I only got two small glasses of wine."

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: "Kayak needs to inform us passengers that the price doesn’t include checked in luggage. It’s a very unpleasant surprise to find out that one has to pay 180$ on top only to have luggage. That’s unacceptable"

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."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Chairs not reclinable in "green" section. What is this, a caste system?!?"

Cons: "I was told that I can check in my luggage free of charge. So I bought some wine and checked in for the connection flights. They charged 35 euros and to final destination 75 euros. I tried to watch some movies and they had only one English channel. I couldn’t believe that kind of shitty system still exists. I don’t recommend it."

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

Cons: "Too sleep deprived from earlier missed connection to notice much about this flight except for the complete mess when it came to boarding. You can't line up 4 boarding zones in an area that is maybe 10ft by 10"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Great service, great comfort, great food and early arrival"

Pros: "Everyone was friendly , there were sandwiches passed out and drinks which was great!"
Cons: "The chairs were small and we didn't have very much legroom"

Cons: "2 hour delay for a 30 minute flight. Really?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First flight was delayed by just a half an hour and we arrived in Portugal. We had a connecting flight to AMS with also TAP and had a two hour window to make the next flight with the same company (TAP). We were in line for passport and then security and talked to several TAP employees and they said we would be have time and wouldn't have a problem catching the second flight. Well, we got through the lines with 30 min before our next flight and they wouldn't let us on. Customer service and organization of the airline is really poor. The aircraft had minimal room and no entertainment. We got on our next flight five hours later and all they gave us was a $10 food voucher. So poorly managed."

Cons: "Having to wait 3 hours in Lisbon airport after airline failed to hold our ny flight leg. Needed to stay overnight and be rebooked. Customer service lines in Lisbon worst I have seen in over 30 years of flying"

Pros: "There was one male steward who was not friendly at all.....I felt he was giving me bad looks....I felt uncomfortable."

Pros: "i like the snack they gave."

Pros: "I tot was nice that the flight was not completely full so that we could have a little bit of room"
Cons: "Second connecting flight was very rough. We thought that this would be the shorter, easier flight but it was not"

Pros: "spaced out"
Cons: "there was no food alergy alternatives (Gluten Free)"

Pros: "Very helpful assistance staff, food and drinks delicious, excellent service onboard"
Cons: "At Denver assistance hadn’t been arranged"

Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."

Pros: "Came close to missing flight because of gate delay because of connecting flight, but one of the flight attendants saw I was flustered and sweaty and gave me a cup of water before the flight even took off. Very thoughtful and nice."

Cons: "I was unable to switch my assigned seat online therefore I went to the United counter in London to have my seat changed. It seemed to be a bother for the person who helped me. Was not friendly at all"

Pros: "Generally flight was ok."
Cons: "Food was not too much. Probably men was hungry, for me it did not taste good."

Cons: "Great airline"

Cons: "Checked luggage took more than 45 minutes to arrive. Tough with little kids to keep waiting."

Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."

Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"

Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."

Pros: "The leg room and comfort in economy, for a 767, were surprisingly good but the quality of screen and entertainment was lacking. The screen on my iPhone is bigger than the screen on the seatback which if compared to other airlines is not up to the mark. The lack of facilities to charge things like ipads or iPhone was disappointing."
Cons: "The seat comfort was good as was the legroom in economy. The crew were friendly and helpful and I found the overall experience good. If Unitied could build on that and just offer power (even usb) and larger screens they would be onto a winner."

Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"

Pros: "bad movie choices"

Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
