Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Did my check-in 24 hours before to make sure I would have an aisle seat ... Lufthansa changed my seat at last minute to a window seat!!! What a poor customer experience."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Pros: "United/ LH first called it a mechanical delay....we waited....then the weather caused this mini plane not to take off....long story short...we had to stay in a hotel...nobody gave us a voucher...our helped us with anything....very poor service"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous. Food was pretty ok and drinks were available during whole flight. Lufthansa is a good airline"
Pros: "Could not get skybridge to operate so that we could disembark. United airlines."
Pros: "I Luz Myriam will give to Lufthansa 10 qualification!!! in Overall, Boarding, Crew, Food , Entertainment, but 8 about Confort"
Cons: "Just the air conditions was too cold I asked the attendant if can warm my place a little, but she told me the other passenger are warm, she doesn't take care about me, NOT COOL!!"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Cons: "The whole trip was a nightmare. I go out of my way to NOT fly United, In this case Lufthansa somehow just sold the ticket and United was flying it and as usual it was horrendous. We had to be re-routed via 3 separate flights jus to make our international connection thanks to our initial flight being moved up 2 hours EARLY. They closed the door in our faces. That added 8 hours of travel time to our trip which I had booked to minimize travel time as I was traveling with pets. United is the WORST."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly. The plane was very clean. The service was excellent, and my husband and I were impressed by the food quality. They even hand out wet wipes for you before serving food, so you can feel clean! I felt like the seats were pretty normal in terms of size and space in economy class, but obviously, it would have been nice to have a tiny bit more space. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "nothing :)"
Pros: "leg room, entertainment, the pilot was informative throughout the flight"
Pros: "Got moved to economy plus - yeah! Great movie selection."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth! Loved being able to go downstairs to baths b/c it was a chance to move!"
Cons: "AC was broken for the first 30-45min. It was quite hot with all of the people stuck on the plane. Luckily, the pilot was able to use the plane's engines to create AC."
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Pros: "food was very good-no plastic flatware! crew attentive, cabin temp good, great selection of movies, hot towels perfect"
Cons: "coffee awful"
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "more comedies movies and more up to date soccer"
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of the better airlines, especially when flying to Germany. They offer a very good service in the economy class which includes free wine (and not only sodas) and a large selection of free newspapers which I value a lot. Newspapers are much more interesting to read than watching movies in my personal opinion. Overall, when aboard Lufthansa, one does not have the feeling of cheapness seen so often on competing airlines. A few years ago, when flying from San Diego to New York, a 5 hour flight on a major US carrier, passengers were not even offered a free drink. Everything had to be paid for. In comparison, all food and all drinks are free on Lufthansa which includes not only wine but also Baileys (a sweet liquor). Given the excellent service, ticket prices charged by Lufthansa are a bargain even if at a small premium over the competition."
Pros: "The flight attendants were good - they run a tight ship, both from a safety perspective and looking out for the passengers. That said, they should have allowed me to move to any open seat, except first class, to accommodate any passenger with broken equipment at the seat they selected."
Cons: "This old plane had broken seats with broken entertainment equipment. After changing seats twice, my ultimate seat still had a loud buzz in the sound system. The flight attendants should be allowed to seat an inconvenienced passenger in any open seat in the event of broken equipment. Space in the seats was ridiculously tight for a 7 hr international flight."
Pros: "Flight was a code share operated by Shuttle America. EMB 170 and crew provided an above average flight. On time departure and arrival. Overall, no complaints."
Pros: "No delays, overall good experience, Good food not exceptional."
Pros: "All around wonderful trip and experience starting with the flight. The pilots and crews courtesy was fabulous. I arrived ahead of schedule by more than an hour. Thank you Lufthansa! I will be flying with you again soon."
Cons: "I had no dislikes... just a grand time..."
Pros: "Traveled with my dog. They had empty row so United moved us there so dog can be comfortable under the middle seat. Staff was very nice and offered water and ice for the dog."
Pros: "Staff were all very professional and courteous. Flight on time."
Cons: "Having to sit in last row."
Pros: "Free movie. Good take off and landing by Pilot."
Cons: "Flight attendants were professional, but discourteous. It was not Luftansa as advertised but A UNited airline Plane & crew terrible ! The flight attendants Made you feel like you couldnt ask for anything extra! (Water, juice). The meal wasn't heated all the way, breakfast snack was cold. The seats seemed extra cramped no leg room. You were literally laying on the passenger next to you! They also didnt allow people with children, babies to do advanced boarding it took up so much time! I payed for extra leg room on my return flight which was cancelled by the way due to weather then they gave upgrades to others for free..! While the return flight was delayed I was kept in airport for 8hrs before they cancelled it also unpleasant! That section of the airport had no food, all United Airlines offered us while waiting was sodas! Really? not again will i fly international with UA!"
Pros: "Love the friendly staff, highly interesting entertainment and comfortable seating options."
Pros: "honestly? nothing."
Cons: "3 hours late. it was operated by united airlines, it was the first and last time that I flew them, worst of the worst!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and nice people incl Kay! She was so helpful to me as I'm traveling internationally with 2 kids under 2"
Cons: "Comfort is horrible if your not in comfort rows with extra room. The food is ok but the staff were so consistent and offered food and drinks. The airline should allow pass gets with kid/kids to get on plane earlier not with reg bording passengers. It's horrible how rude people are and impatient!! This would hwlp"
Cons: "Pilot did not yet to avoid turbulences, which were pretty bad. They also lost my luggage which arrived after three days."
Pros: "Everything was very nice. Flight was on time. The staff was nice. Food was good. Seats could have more space. But overall was great."
Pros: "Comfortable and convenient"
Pros: "Being assigned seat only ten minutes before take off is not ideal"
Pros: "Great service and good very friendly"
Pros: "We came with a baby and were assigned a bassinet seat. The service was great. The food was excellent. The seats were comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were nice. They tried to make everyone happy even though the flight was fully booked."
Cons: "My seat was terrible ( middle all the way in the back and the people next to me occupied both my armrests so i had almost no room to stretch so couldn't relax or sleep at all)) and the food was gross i got food poisoning from the last snack ( turkey sandwich ) and they didn't have any ginger ale."
Pros: "I was not worse than other airlines."
Cons: "It was not better than other airlines."
Pros: "Flight took off a couple of hours late due to problems in Frankfurt airport but everyone worked to help us with connecting flights."
Pros: "Got us there"
Pros: "Significantly more room, width and leg room, with footrests, business class wide arm rests, courtesy kit (socks, mask, toothbrush)... Great entertainment system and large screen. Beats the heck out of united and american!"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful"
Cons: "First flight was canceled. We were rerouted through to Philadelphia to London to Frankfurt and on to Salzburg. Luggage lost in London still waiting on that."
Cons: "The seats werent very comfortable and there was a BIG language barrier with the crew."
Pros: "That we had a selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "Got stuck in the last row in the middle of the plane. They ran out of turkey for dinner and got stuck with awful pasta. They should leave that to Italian chefs to make. I am glad I packed some snacks so that I could have something to eat besides the roll, dessert and small salad. The seats didn't recline fully like the seats in front of us so we were really cramped. They also skipped my husband when they came around with the drinks... we had to hit the call button. I will book my next trip with another airline."
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled without warning and offered zero options. They even turned off their phones to the entire public. Will never fly Lufthansa again. Ever."
Pros: "THE WOMAN AT THE BAGGAGE TRANSFER DESK WHO FOUND MY PHONE AND WAITED FOR ME AT MY GATE FOR 30 MINUTES TO RETURN MY PHONE. SHE WAS THE BEST!! The inflight entertainment. The pilot making up time for the one hour delay in takeoff for fog."
Cons: "The plane is old and in need of replacement or total interior redo. The walk to the gate from the terminal is forever and once you are arrive there isn't anything to do but wait. The crew was OK but nothing more than doing the basics. While steerage is not expected to be comfortable a redo or new plane would make it better."
Pros: "Variety of Movies"
Cons: "parallel boarding of business and economy class, poor entertainment system quality. Functionality limited and even after 2 times rebooting no big improvement."
Pros: "They actually feed you good food and the crew's service is very fast. In-flight entertainment was wonderful."

Cons: "The announcements were hard to understand."
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "It could have happened."
Pros: "Really nice crew and quite good food"
Cons: "BA business cabin "suite" concept makes the whole thing feel cramped and narrow, not to mention very inconvenient to move through with luggage (or at all). A serious miss from the BA interior designer."
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Crew was great and movie selection was good. And the food was also good"
Cons: "It was all good!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "First leg of our trip on British air on a smaller plane with lots of comfort and room. Our 2nd and long leg was on a larger and newer plane. Leg room and room for the tray table was so tight and uncomfortable for a long Flight. Paid extra for end seating and using British air for transfers through Heathrow as an American Air partner. Will try to avoid the extra cost in the future."
Cons: "Food and wheelchair service dropping me off at inappropriate place & no wheelchair to continue through passport control to Heathrow express train"
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour in London and then immigration and customs in Chicago were awful"
Pros: "Crew did their job that’s all. Not very friendly."
Cons: "My flight Rome to London - I was very surprised to learn we had to buy water, tea or coffee. To give it to your passengers is the least you could do. We didn’t travel for free. This was the very first time I have ever been told, as your partner Aer Lingusdid as wel, that I needed to pay for water."
Cons: "Received a text that changed the flight departure to a later time. Missed the flight. Cost me baanaadditional"
Pros: "amazing crew"
Cons: "nothing it was perfect"
Cons: "British Airways just get the basics right. One carry on one personal item. Friendly staff. Comfy seats. Honestly I don’t know what more I could ask for outside of USB ports."
Pros: "The crew were above friendly, calling you by name and were very accommodating."
Cons: "Plane was older, seats were grungy and the onboard entertainment was not updated, i.e: small screens with poor visibility, some screens did not even work for some passengers, limited amount of movies/entertainment for a 10 hour flight this was disappointing and seriously makes me reconsider flying British Airways ever again."
Pros: "The movie selection."
Cons: "2 hours stuck on the plane before leaving from London to Columbus, in flight entertainment had to be restarted twice on same flight. I missed my connection to Madrid from Chicago because the airline lost the plane that was already at Chicago. My luggage arrived in Lyon 3 days late and I was never given any information on reimbursement for the clothes and toiletries I had to buy."
Pros: "There was a good selection of very different movies to watch. I found four that I wanted to see."
Cons: "There were not enough chairs in the waiting area. There was a long wait, first, just to get on the plane, then, instead of letting us stay in the waiting area, we were all seated, and left waiting for at least an hour, most of that time without explanation, sitting in a stifling plane at the gate, without being allowed to get up and move around. Also, the ratio of carbohydrates to protein in the main meal was way out of kilter. I don't want rice + potatoes + bread + crackers all in one meal, with zero vegetables. The tiny piece of cheese helped."
Pros: "The crew are working really hard to make do with what they have. Exceptional service almost makes up for the dated fleet."
Cons: "Tiny entertainment screens, no USB, really BA- how long will you keep running these 777’s for?"
Pros: "More room than usually, almost comfortable"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable for a 6'1" , 216 lb person."

Cons: "No food available on flight in business class. Kitchen breakdown"
Pros: "Boarding was different than told. All boarded from front. Routine short flight"
Cons: "Food options very poor. Was not asked about veg or non veg just directly served veg. Entertainment on a 9 hour flight was devoid of choices."
Pros: "Those beautiful British accents (ok English spoken properly)"
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "Crew and airport personnel friendly and efficient. 747 economy seats very comfortable. Entertainment system is great."
Cons: "Food is mediocre."
Pros: "The website would not allow me to enter my passport details as I have PR status. As a result I could not select a seat of choice. it would be much better if PR details could be added when passport info is not accepted. The flight was fine"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The communication of information for the flight by the flight attendants before boarding. Our flight was delayed by 1hour because of bad weather condition in London and the cruise communicated very well about it."
Cons: "I wish there was some entertainment available on this type of short flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew was amazing. Not only the pilot kept us informed but also the crew was outstanding, very helpful and hardworking."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed as soon as we departed. They reset it for the entire plane but it didn't work for some passengers. Fortunately, mine worked well but I would not have survived such a long flight without the entertainment offered, so I can only imagine how painful it was for those affected. I know this, in hindsight, is a silly problem, but when flying it's important to have options, especially for an 11-hour flight. The crew handled it fantastically, by the way."
Cons: "Not the best airplane food I had, luckily I packed some snacks before leaving Düsseldorf"
Cons: "Even non-alcoholic drinks had to be purchased (and only with a credit card)."
Pros: "Short flight; no problems."

Pros: "Nothing. British Airways refused to help us"
Cons: "Took over two hours on the phone to try and get rebooked. Missed the last flight out of the night due to incompetence. British Airways desk check in staff was so rude, wouldn't even talk to us. Thank goodness for the helpful Air Canada grind crew in Toronto."
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "seats were cramped, insufficient leg room"
Cons: "Older plane, terrible tv compared to other airlines. Food was mediocre"
Cons: "Unfortunately I am allergic to all the food they offered .I wish the served a plain chicken or plain turkey.Everything was spicy or mixed with a pesto or curry. They need to something that is served completely plain ."
Pros: "Staff was very nice."
Cons: "I feel it is very cheap of the airline to charge for all food and beverages during the flight. A small snack and complimentary water/soda/juice would have gone a long way."
Pros: "checking in was endless. boarding was fine. seat was tiny and uncomfortable. food and drink were ok. all in all pretty ordinary."

Pros: "we landed"
Cons: "flight had a two hours delay flight attendants were rude and obnoxious will never fly on british airways ever again they shouldnt be allowed to drive people let alone fly them london is just fog and ugly faces british airways' customer service is the equivalent of wisdom teeth: they exist but no one seems to know why they should delete their airline altogether"
Cons: "They had me change my seat so couple could sit together. Then gave my special gluten free meal to the man sitting in my former seat. They never checked and I had to inform crew that I never got my special food. They did get me something to eat finely. I was not very happy. Kathleen M Quinn"
Cons: "The seats go very far back which makes it extremely uncomfortable when the person in front of you has it all the way down the entire flight. Left me no room to put my tray down."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."

Pros: "The flight was comfortable and crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. They need to load back to front."
Pros: "I flew business class: the crew and comfort was great; the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Boarding was horrendous: they have the whole flight stand and wait to board! In Madrid, they called to initiate boarding and we stood for 15-20 min before anyone moved at all; business class was then called, and we ended up standing another 15-20 min in the jetway before being ushered into the plane! Even in business class, the entertainment system was poor it's difficult to use and my system froze entirely on the way to Madrid. It worked on the way back, but the selection was relatively limited and poor."
Cons: "Flight was ontime and food was good"
Pros: "The flying crew was OK."
Cons: "The company is not good on following schedules, jeopardizing people's duties and responsibilities. Definitely not recommending this company to anyone!"
Pros: "Very limited - no vegetarian option. Was not enough quantity. No snacks in between"
Cons: "Boarding was extremely disorganized and hectic. No lines or sections were created to organize boarding process. Boarding area was crammed with people pushing to board. Seat selections of many passengers (including my boyfriend's and my own) were switched at the last minute right as we were boarding . We had to wait until everyone was seated to negotiate seat changes with fellow passengers in order to sit together. The seat and luggage moves added to the chaos on the plane and delayed the flight by about 45 minutes. food was mediocre, seats uncomfortable. All in all not a good experience. Had boarding been calmer and smoother the rest of the issues wouldn't be as notable as us passengers would have been in a much better mood."
Cons: "Lack of organization"
Cons: "I really enjoy flying in your airline"
Cons: "After a delayed flight coming to Madrid, I was faced with an unbelievably long boarding control line, it seemed clear that I would miss my flight! Crew then stopped all people from going up to the security check point except those headed to London! But I was going to miss my flight to JFK also. This process was so poorly managed!!!! The crowd became very angry, some people even started pushing, yelling and becoming violent. I feared for my safety. I pleaded with a crew member to let me through, and eventually she did, but the process was frightening and chaotic!!!"
Pros: "Always great service on Iberia."
Cons: "My only complaint, and it's frequently the case with Iberia, is that the cabin is always very cold. Thanks for the blankets, though!"

The food was mediocre. Our entertainment system was not working at all for half the flight, they reset it about four times to get it working. Once it was working, my husband's screen was not responding at all. Flight was smooth and pilots made up some time in the air which was appreciated."

Pros: "Seating was very comfortable. Good food and beverages. Was offered beer and wine as well with our meal. Extensive selection of entertainment at seat."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing. No overhead signs to indicate boarding groups. Announcements were hard to hear. Stewards were hard to contact mid-flight to ask for water to drink. A long flight, and it would have been nice to have more available."
Cons: "The customer service people were the least sympathetic and least helpful people I have ever met. They did nothing to accommodate us."
Cons: "Waiting for luggage at JFK."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was over two hours delayed; flight attendants mostly ignored economy cabin, closed the curtains and chatted in their little area, and took a really long to respond to calls for attention to get water etc."
Cons: "1hr. delay because plane lost electrical power. No entertainment on board due to previous electrical problem. 1hr delay at arrival again due to plane electrical power."

Iberia allows two back, since American Airlines was ha delving the flight, they did not respect I arias policies and charged me for the second bag. the new fly was many hours later than what I was expecting.

Cons: "1st leg of trip, Flight was delayed an hour, original layover for 2nd leg was 1hr 15mins, so once we hit the ground we were pressed to get deplaned and on to the next gate because the Flight was still showing original on time take off time. Gate was changed, moved further away from arrival gate so many passengers ran to catch a plane that was supposed to be taking off in 10 mins, but when we arrived at the gate, boarding hadn't even started! Info at gate still showed on time take off. We didn't take off for another hour!"
Cons: "I booked an Iberia flight through Kayak back in November and shortly after started getting emails from CSAirfare, a company I have never heard of, that my flight schedule wouldn't work. 3 or 4 email later, that was straightened out. I then tried to choose seats - couldn't even find an Iberia website, but since the flights were being operated by American, I tried to choose seats. I was able to choose seats once, but it never took. I let it go. A month before my flight, I could find an Iberia website. When I tried to book seats on Iberia, I was told it was really an American flight and they would redirect me to the American website and then American would kick me back to Iberia. Add to that the fact that although there was a 3 hour window between my connecting flights, somehow American couldn't get us off the ground and I ended up running through JFK and barely making my flight to Spain."
Cons: "I paid for an assigned seat months before the flight. I was not given my assigned seat because I was told it was in business class. I filed a claim and want a refund."
Cons: "We left late. We only had a drink. There was no entertainment. The seats are small. Another man seated beside me was crowding my space."

Pros: "The entertainment was good and the food was better than I expected."

The same did not happen before where I had to wait until 2am for my tap flight that was supposed to leave at 11:30pm. I have been flighting TAP for many years now and it used to be one of my favorite airlines. No longer is the case. Over the years there has been a decline on service."
Pros: "Entertainment and seat space were great."
Cons: "They somehow managed to lose the entire flights luggage"

Cons: "TV didn't work. A female attendant made me store my hat but didn't make a male passenger."
Cons: "TAP Airlines stranded us in Lisbon. They were late flying us from Vienna to Lisbon and then canceled our seats on our connection to JFK. Instead, they rebooked us on the next day's flight a full 24 hours after, refusing to rebook us on earlier flights on other carriers. Their customer service was as bad as I've ever experienced. Multiple agents admitted their company is terrible and doesn't care about its customers. The indifference to our situation was surreal. Lesson learned."
Pros: "Plane was good, service on board pretty good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we were never notified despite receiving multiple emails to ‘upgrade’ our flight. While checking in we attempted to upgrade 3 tickets to first class and were sent to 3 different areas in the airport with our luggage, having to wait in line each time. Didn’t provide vegaterian options on board. Weren’t given a gate ever after landing 5 hours late and were kept on board for half an hour making us miss a 2nd connection we had to rebook after the initial delay. A frustrating experience hat could have been made better with just some communication about what was going on."
Cons: "We were never prompted to pay for our check in baggage at the time of purchase and so when we showed up we were forced to pay 85 euros for one checked bag for an international flight on top of a ticket that already cost more than $250. The luggage restrictions were never shown previously. Will never fly TAP Portugal again."
Cons: "Boarding gate too small. Suoer overcrowded"
Cons: "Two TAP flights today. Both flights delayed more than an hour."
Cons: "Lost luggage. Late arrival. Had to run."
Pros: "Good food. More or less on time."
Cons: "No electrical outlets."
Cons: "They charge $100 to check a bag. Never again."
Pros: "There wasn't anything special to like compares to other good airlines. I would say crews attitudes and foods were alright."
Cons: "Doesn't have a USB cable to charge the phone and there were no perfume or toothbrush for the long journey. Also no apple juice."
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: "Very friendly personnel at gate."
Cons: "Arrogant crew. Hid in galley behind curtain for most of the flight. For several hours not even the offer of a cup of water! No possibility to charge electronics in economy class. Charge of $ 75.00 for first bag on an international flight?!? We're not talking about a budget airline, but THE airline of Portugal!"
Pros: "business class was great seat comfortable the lounge was very nice"
Cons: "Food on plane ok wish had more choices"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Great food."
Cons: "Purchased tickets that included one bag each for our international flight. But at ckeckin they "couldn't find it in the computer", so charged 45 Euro ($50) per bag. The checkin lady was quite distraught about this, but charge they did. In our reservation there is no indication of what fare level (they have about five) has been purchased. Beware!"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "The food was edible. The entertainment display was old. Not much leg room."
Cons: "There is only one unusual thing - the flight attendant was poking me to ask if I wanted food as I was clearly asleep and did not want to be bothered. There were still 90 minutes left till landing. Awkward and unnecessary and why in the world would she do that? Let people rest, please. :-)"
Pros: "The food and air conditioning"
Cons: "I purposely got a seat in the front row for extra leg room next to my two friends whose tickets I paid for. The TV in my seat was broken and I therefore could not at all watch TV unless I moved to another seat. I ended up not being able to sit with my friends for the entire seven-hour flight. The flight was delayed multiple times. The first time it was delayed because they were doing an extra security search by hand in the Gated area awaiting to board the plane. I have never seen this in my life and it was definitely started. Then we were on board the plane for almost an hour before they made an announcement that they found a broken part on the plane and had to switch planes. It was all very fishy. Quite frankly that I want my money back."
Pros: "it had a feet support the toilet was big it was airplane food, still better than most companies I know from Europe, Asia and the USA."
Cons: "the head rest was too hard"
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."
Pros: "The crew were iincredibly professional yet friendly Very human - at leat the flight attendant that took care of my area Enjoyed the dinner found my 11D seat to be very spacious!"
Cons: "Poor policy regarding musical instrument. Probably the only company asking to pay a special fee on hold or to buy an extra seat for a regular guitar. Ridiculous."
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!"
Cons: "TAP is the worst. I"d rather walk than book a flight with them."
Pros: "Andrera Araijo was extremely friendly, attentive and energetic. She smiled through out the entire flight. Whether she was attending to me or a fellow passenger it was all smiles. She definitely made smile. God bless you Andrera!"
Pros: "decent selection of movies and the tablet was nice to watch them on"
Cons: "Despite booking a vegetarian meal none was available."
Pros: "Big space between seats. Best screen entertainment."
Cons: "Food was only average. Especially fish."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, pleasent stewardesses, good tv's/entertainment options."
Cons: "We flew out of Rome. Management at Rome airport told us their emplyee(s) were drunk! Unsafe flight! NEVER USE THIS AIRLINE- YOURE PUTTING YOUR LIFE AT RISK!"
Cons: "Being sat in a middle seat. With that being said, it was OK. No problems."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The help on board was extremely professional and polite. There was plenty of leg room and the bathrooms were fairly large too."
Cons: "some chaos at boarding, with redundant passport control. Upon arrival, we were held for 45 min at JFK, as the gate wasn't ready and the crew had the engines running and fumes penetrated the cabin that made me almost sick. I guess that's not much of a TAP fault, but it was a bad finish of an otherwise uneventful flight..."
Pros: "Flight Time was short and arrival and departure times excellent."
Cons: "Could have had more recent movies and more variety"
Cons: "One of my luggage was missing."
Pros: "Me encanto el asiento que me asignaron y que las películas se pudiera escuchar en español. Gracias Tap Portugal por ese viaje tan cómodo"
Cons: "Que no tenían la hoja de migración para entrar a EUA en idioma español solo en Inglés y Portugués"
Pros: "Finally getting to JFK"
Cons: "Crew with the attitude, limited access to toilets, late departure for the unexplained reasons"
Pros: "My check in was by far the easiest it has ever been on any of the international flights I've taken over the years. This was my first flight with TAP Portugal and I will certainly by happy to fly with them again. The next time, I'm going to take advantage of their offer to stop over in Lisboa."
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."
Pros: "Again, the crew was delightful!"
Cons: "Customer service to get a veggie option on the flight was really hard to work with. We did get veggie options but they were not very good at all. Movie selection is terrible, but the screen worked a little better, more leg room on this flight than the flight to Lisbon."
Pros: "Not much. The food was good. That was about it."
Cons: "The entertainment sis not work. Spent 8 hours of the flight looking at nothing."
Cons: "The 8 hour flight took forever. From boarding taking over an hour (I admit it was a full flight), the TV sets didn't work. They finally got most of the TV sets to work but we could only watch one movie that has several glitches (restating the movie after 15 minutes and volumes had to constantly be adjusted). The good options were limited for a pregnant women (sordfish - high in Mercury, turkey sandwich - not supposed to ear cold cuts, and meatballs (I unfortunately dint eat beef). I should have opted for the vegetarian meal but I wasn't pregnant when I booked my flight and the crew could not accommodate me. Also I think the should have servered one more round of drinks for a ver long flight)."
Cons: "I cannot think of anything - our connecting flight was delayed and TAP was incredibly proactive and had a van waiting to rush is over security -overall - fantastic service"
Pros: "Food, Service, Entertainment console, TAP red blankets (and pillows)"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Easy to buy"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "On time and all fine. Excellent service and good food."
Cons: "Dirty plane, nobody bothered to wipe the tray table and Black Mold showing (extensively) at top air vents. Very uncomfortable flight. AC needs to do a Much Better job cleaning between flights!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were not kind to the customers and treated us like they were doing us a favor by working on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants at one time actually were talking about other passengers, who happened to be of Chinese descent like they weren't even there. Like they did not understand English. Just rude"
Pros: "Efficient and quick, no issues."
Cons: "flight was too bumpy"
Pros: "We got there without crashing."
Cons: "Checking in and luggage drop off was chaos. One useless staff person failed to tell people where to line up to drop bags off until the end. She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."
Cons: "Entertainment options are old. Food in unaccomodating for Vegetarians."
Cons: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "After landing in Newar. One had to exit into the terminal and in order to connect, I had to go through TSA again, and the line was way too long. I had 2 hrs between flights and was able to make the connection, but I'm not sure if I only had one hour... I would have probably missed my connection."
Cons: "Time is money. Instead of telling customers to arrive 3 hours before departure and it is their problems if they can make it, a better way to be helpful is to have representatives ready to spend 3 minutes to look at customers' status, offer feasible options and point people to the right directions right away. Be a part of the solution! Don't be such a pain when you can offer a helping hand."
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "at least we wereat a part of the wedding"

Cons: "Missed connection because of their computer issues. The hotel they arranged for us was a 30minute drive from airport. We passed 50 hotel alternatives on the way. Nobody greeted us at the gate to explain our options. My luggage never arrived"
Pros: "Short trip, nothing too much to complain about or sing about."
Cons: "the entertainment system not functioning tjhat well."
Pros: "Tv options"
Cons: "I'm only 5'10" and my knees were digging into chair in front of me. Also, we had everyone boarded about ten minutes early (which is awesome) and we were told we would leave a bit early, but then sat there for about 15 minutes and departed even later due to long line for take off."
Cons: "Never made the flight and the only flight air canada is willing to put me on is 24 hours later. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."
Cons: "They wouldn't seat us together"
Pros: "Choices of movies were nice . Food was good ."
Pros: "Airplane features like the comfortable seating, leg room and window dimming capability. Head rest entertainment center and Flight Info graphics were great."
Cons: "Overall the crew seemed bored and tired with their job. On-board announcements sounded disinterested, and crew seemed tight and not overly pleasant."
Pros: "Everything was great I had a Blast"
Pros: "Overall everything was good, i liked the customer service of the crew. Boarding was on time. Everything went smooth. Overall I was very happy according to the price i paid for the Tickets. Customer, Tanmay Bhatt"
Cons: "Only thing that i would request is the screen of the Tv, If possible please make it good. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew handled things well in spite of some turbulence closer to EWR. Thanks for a smooth and easy ride into NYC/NJ."
Pros: "wonderful plane"
Cons: "NO WIFI!!!"
Pros: "organized boarding; timely departure and landing; baggage swifly appeared at carosel; younger members of the crew were great"
Cons: "Most senor member of the crew on the flight [female/blond] was flat out rude and clearly should not be interfacing with clients on flights."
Cons: "Horrible to say the least Never made it to Toronto"
Pros: "Short flight, crew is friendly, and easy boarding process."
Cons: "I find the Air Canada flights between Toronto and Newark are frequently delayed."
Cons: "it was delayed for 1 hour"
Cons: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."
Cons: "No TV service on an 11 hour flight. Really? It's 2016 can we get Air Canada into this decade please."
Pros: "Air Canada has good service. Our flight was delayed and I only got one announcement. I think next time it should be more."
Pros: "Boarding of children at the beginning of boarding operations. Double thumbs up."
Cons: "At 2 hours into the flight I was most of the way through a movie. The crew then announced that some passengers were unable to view the entertainment system so they were resetting the entire system. Crew said passengers would be able to resume watching entertainment at the point they left off. Needless to say this was not the case. The entertainment system never got reset properly and did not function for the rest of the 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "the flight actually went"
Cons: "our gate was switched and then there were no updates until after the original boarding time passed"
Pros: "Flight took 1 hour instead of the scheduled 1.5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late to board and then another hour late to actually take off."
Cons: "Plane edges were rather dirty with lots of debris. A little gross."
Cons: "* Worst food I have ever had on a plane. The crew did not even know what was in some of the food, which is not comforting if you have allergies. * Entertainment system earphones were so bad they were unusable."
Pros: "Got on flight"
Cons: "Got boarding pass but no signs to differentiate Air Canada counters (US-bound, domestic, international). Went to wrong counter and had to run to right one Booked flight. When I checked bag, I got a standby with hope that I could get on flight. Fortunately, I was able to make it. If I had connecting flights, it would have been a nightmare Same boring old movies and TV - 2 broke girls episodes. Just drink, nothing else for morning flight. Something to eat? It is an international (Can-US) flight Slow unloading of luggage"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late. It had apparently arrived late, and then they had mechanical problems. Air Canada gave me some inaccurate information which delayed me in Montreal and made me miss my connection to Toronto. Also, even though I specified to the flight attendant that I was connecting to Toronto before going to the US , they only gave me the US custom form even though you apparently need to fill the Canadian one even if you are just transiting through the country."
Cons: "The airport crew lacked professionalism & courtesy when relaying information on the flight being delayed. Bad attitude from airport crew & lack of communication with delayed flight."
Pros: "The trip was amazing, for the extremely prompt and organized Japan crew boarding to the great and smooth flying despite the long time it took to get to Torinto"
Cons: "The food onboard could use an improvement, it felt very poor and flavorless. The Toronto immigration processing was cumbersome and time consuming, took us about an hour plus to clear customs which left us just enough time to make it to the gate for our connection flight to EWR. The process could be improved to allow for us to decompress enough to allow for a more relaxed connection flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and then when we boarded, were told that the flight would be delayed again . . . and then informed that the flight was canceled. The staff did not know what was happening, and kept us on the plane for almost 2 hours, before letting us off and telling us there were no hotels available. It was a nightmare experience transferring in Toronto. The crew did what they could, but they were largely kept in the dark too."
Pros: "Efficient, vigilant and helpful crew"
Cons: "I found the seats quite uncomfortable which is unusual for me as I don't have back or neck issues. Once I was able to position the seat after take-off the comfort was improved."
Pros: "Flight attendants did not wake me up!"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay and almost miss my connection flight... and its not the first time with Air Canada"
Cons: "When did Air Canada stop providing meals on international flights? It was my first time flying in/out of Newark on Air Canada and was surprised I had to purchase food on an international flight. Chicken noodle soup in a cup was $3, was about the only thing that looked reasonable on the menu."
