Cons: "Service, staff, food. Hoping the return flight will be a bit above the norm"
Cons: "Delayed again. 3 flights in a row"

Cons: "La pantalla se veía muy borrosa. Un sistema muy lento y obsoleto Necesitan actualizarlo"
Cons: "No USB or power outlets. Very small screens for the entertainment. Definitely, not up to par for a long international flight."
Pros: "The Absolute Best Service I've Ever received on a flight!! I was fed snacks dinner and breakfast! The cabin crew was constantly paying attention to the passengers!! Seats were very comfortable and pillows and blankets were provided!"
Cons: "The layover in London was too short and we missed the follow-on flight due to the flight getting into London late and BA not getting us through the terminal rapidly."
Pros: "We enjoyed the fact that for economy, they offered mixed drinks and wine. Dinner food was excellent. Breakfast not much, but then again I'm not much for breakfast. The seats in economy were comfortable."
Cons: "The screen on the old 747 needs to be refurbished."
Cons: "I did nit get on time to the flight to Tel Aviv"
Pros: "best vegan meal ever"
Cons: "I missed my connection and was stuck for 12 hours. I was not warned that at nearly 70, I might need help to get to the gate on time. When I was late, the staff told me I should have asked for help.I had no way of knowing. I was told on another flight about the time limit. The lack of variety of entertainment and the quality of the equipment and the picture resolution made was a joke"
Pros: "BA recognizes benefits earned with AA (OneWprld alliance). Boarding was quick and get to use the launch to freshen up before the trip."
Cons: "Crew was not polite; food was terrible and seat was awful (no space, poor quality entertainment screen and no space for legs)"
Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Poor screen quality, ok selection of movies compared to other airlines, poor selection of audio"
Pros: "Economy was sparsely booked, unlike WT+ and Vlub World, so I had four seats to lie across, but the armrests don’t fold into the seat backs all the way, so it sounds better than it was. The food is rather poor. Beverage service is excellent."
Cons: "The flight left MIA almost an hour late, and the captain didn’t say why. We arrived an hour late at LHR. I had fifty minutes to change terminals for a connection. What other international carrier operates a hub with international flights leaving from two distant terminals? If my connection hadn’t been late"
Cons: "Everything was fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was old with worn furniture, torn material on seats, and non functioning entertainment system"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Boarding was late with no announcement. Entertainment was limited to none existent."
Cons: "I ended up calling American Airlines and they changed my flight completely. I will never be using Kayak again as you made a stressful situation even more stressful. You don't care about your customers at all. If you did you would have a customer service here in America"
Pros: "- price - crew"
Cons: "- no USB - tiny screens - poor video quality - crappy food"
Pros: "My flight was changed from Philadelphia to London"
Cons: "Little leg space"
Cons: "Old 747 minimum space in coach. Not a very clean plane."
Pros: "Great space and sit in Economy Plus area"
Cons: "The check in process in Miami airport. Crowded, slow."
Pros: "Very good experience, will travel with you again."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and hard working."
Cons: "Got at the airport plenty of time prior, waited well over an hour in line to get a boarding pass, while the one ticket taker had no sense of urgency. Could have easily missed the flight."
Pros: "Flying BA is like flying any other American provider. The service was good, the food was meager and mediocre. We flew the same route with SWISS Air a few months ago and the seats are a bit more comfy and the food, snacks and drink were more frequent and delicious."
Cons: "Nothing not to like, just have had better for same economy ticket."
Pros: "Very prompt and good communication from pilot"
Cons: "Really nothing"
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 3 hrs which meant I would miss 2 onward connections-- had to be re- booked on American"
Cons: "BA flight was ok, but as we booked through American Airlines, online check-in was impossible. In consequence we could get only separated seats, needed more time for checkin etc. As we have booked the flight with AA Budapest-London-Miami-Sao-Paolo, and Santiago-Miami-London- Budapest, we faced this problem several times."
Cons: "Absolutely cold flight, AC was like 15 deg. C"
Pros: "Silent aircraft, good indoor climate"
Cons: "Food was awful, boarding takes too long"
Cons: "Departed one hour late from Miami"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours because maintenance needed to change a tire on the airplane. The delay would have been acceptable if it wasn't for the excuses the airline offered. First, they said maintenance couldn't find a spare tire, and when they did rob a tire from another plane, they said the delay was due to FAA paperwork. These reasons, most likely true, suggest American Airlines (British Airways sub-contracted this flight to its partner, American Airlines) was not prepared to handle such an emergency."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was alright. Good entertainment and comfy plane."
Pros: "Nice and polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Breakfast was very poor and bad."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the passenger beside me a young man was over served by the flight attendant and became extremely inebriated so that when I tried to ignore him and sleep, he kept touching me, rubbing my arm and leg. The crew were aware of what was happening and tried to reprimand him. It made my flight extremely difficult and it was all because the flight attendant served him doubles of whiskey (which the passenger was drinking neat) on six occasions, two bottles of red wine and that does not include the doubles the passenger procured for himself from other attendants. In all the behaviour of this passenger made my flight a complete nightmare and it was totally unnecessary for him to be served this much alcohol."
Pros: "A long haul flight in coach can be interesting, but the BA staff, as always, were very cordial. Security was great...thorough."
Pros: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew s oustanding. They were courteous, helpful, very professional and made the flying experience a pleasure for my family. With respect to the Miami ticket agents, there are 3 people I want to highlight for excellent service. Denise, who courteously accommodated our family and rescheduled our flight as needed, another young lady who checked us in. She was sensitive to our party of 5 and was extremely pleasant. The check in process was chaotic at best and she helped make it a pleasant experience. The person is Diane, the manager at the Miami airport. She helped bring order to a completely disorganized check in process and ended up personally escorting us through security toe sure that we made our flight on time. Diane is an excellent leader."
Cons: "The check in process was completely disorganized, due to a cancelled flight from Miami to Heathrow the night before. And there were 3 scheduled flights already that people were checking in for as well. There had to have been at least 600+ people in line to check in, plus those from the night before. The Miami airport doesn't have kiosks for passengers to easily check in and bag drop, which doesn't make sense in such a large and busy international airport. That would have made a huge difference in this case. Also, we paid for our seats to select them prior to 24 hours and we ended up not sitting together."
Pros: "The food and service was good. The seats in coach were uncomfortable and the entertainment was subar as there were only 8 or so movies no being recent release"
Cons: "The lack of decent movies"
Pros: "We took off with an hour delay but we caught up so there were no delays in London. Smooth flight. The guy at check in was great, very helpful and pleasant (I forgot his name unfortunately)."
Cons: "-The crew was pretty unfriendly. They did not smile and one crew basically yelled at me becasue he did not hear my reply when he asked what I want for dinner so instead of asking politely again he started to yell at me "Chicken or pasta?'"- I think Allistair was his name. The other lady also came across rude to me when she said "You have to speak up becasue I cant hear you!"- sorry, English is not my first language but I think the polite way should have been "Sorry m'am I could not hear you, could you please spak up?" - entertainment needs better selection"
Cons: "The plane was quite old so there were no individual TVs. For a long flight, this is a must."
Pros: "Good choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Thd boarding was delayed. The food was terrible. Thd breakfast was barely edible. For such a long flight, our flight attendant didn't even check on us after serving the meal and appeared bothered to even be there. In all fairness this was an AA flight not British Airways."
Pros: "The flight got us home"
Cons: "American Airlines, which ran the flight as B.A.'s partner, didn't give any reason for the on-ground delay, and acted as if we all should have expected to be an hour and a half late leaving the terminal. They offered very little information and didn't really care that we were so late leaving."
Cons: "Real time information about departure and gate info for delayed flight would have been helpful"
Pros: "We missed the flight by five minutes do to our connecting flight being late. We had mechanical issues, weather delays and an aborted landing in Miami."
Cons: "Tap would not roll us over for the next day. We had executive tickets in business class. They wanted 3000.00 dollars each for the flight."
Cons: "The Airbus 330 is onder Verizon with classic beats with less place and pedals. Also the personal screens are far outdated"
Pros: "Not much. Check in luggage charges destroyed the experience, this was not disclosed on the ticket itinerary"
Cons: "TAP charges $120 1st checkin bag, this was not disclosed on the itinerary or kayak site when we book the ticket. We expect kayak to refund this."
Cons: "Dinner (entree, salad, shrimp appetizer, roll, and flan) and breakfast (fruit,croissant, roll,meat, cheese) were delicious -- but left us stuffed.Outstanding service. Milk or creme with coffee would have been nice."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Boarding slightly convoluted but ok"
Pros: "Nothing to like. Rude staff."
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Great food. Arrive and flying"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, nothing special"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and cold except for the major hot dish. Lights were on almost all night in cabiaudio and video were subpar or nonexistent. Staff explained it was an old plan Seats were okay for short fight but not comfortable for long flight"
Cons: "Schedule wrong, missed next flight"
Pros: "Probably won’t buy from Kayak again."
Cons: "Charged double for baggage on moble check in. Called 3 times - spent over an hour to find out since I bought discount tickets no refunds for excess baggage. I didn’t want excess baggage their website automatically charged double - website said ecess charged automatic when checking in. Won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "Nice paid business class upgrade"
Cons: "Seat 1F gets hit quite often during service"
Cons: "why do they sell their tickets when they know they can not make the connection? little time between the two flights compared to the functionality of the airport. never again TAP"
Cons: "I was dehydrated because I could barely get enough water to drink"
Pros: "The service appeared to be good but everything was rationed"
Pros: "The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Super accommodating. They had wonderful customer service."
Cons: "The videos weren’t working, so we had no flight entertainment. I didn’t realize I had to pay $105 USD for my ONE 25 kg bag since it wasn’t on their website nor was I told at check-in. They called my name at the gate and told me I had to pay for it. The food wasn’t that great— my potato, or maybe yucca?, was rock hard, and the chicken needed a lot of salt. The seats didn’t decline that well, and the temperature was either freezing or really hot."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs with foot support., friendly staff, good food and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was canceled which was out of their control. Unfortunately, what wasn’t out of their control was the amount of people handling the rebooking. One person was handling alternate flights. I was the 6th person in line (which was the time equivalent of an hour and half wait. I missed all possible reroutes due to flights closing. The customer service of tap airlines is severely lacking"
Cons: "Flight was late and made me miss the connecting flight"
Cons: "Crew was very sour faced, impolite and rude the whole time. Seats were way too packed"
Pros: "was a direct flight"
Cons: "we were made to exit down a slepery stairs and pack ourselves like sadines on a bus to the terminal..not good!"
Cons: "Theo charge me a lot for my luggages I just try to call many times to tap for ask about the sports luggages and I never can reach then nobody ever answer the fone . They charge me 124 $ for my board and 90 dollars for my bag the total is 214 $ that’s almost the same price of the ticket ."
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."
Pros: "Very good staff and decent food"
Cons: "Video in business was worse than my economy experiences 20 years ago!!!!"
Cons: "Outdated movies"
Pros: "The extra room and comfort the business class provides"
Cons: "The business class cabins are not up-to-date and state of the art. The seats are not comfortable. On my outbound flight, the seat did not fully lay flat. The electrical outlet was old and worn out and ended up not charging my devices because it was too loose. They need to install USB outlets like everybody else. Needs more luxury like others in business class"
Cons: "Theo lost my luggage the plane was full of dust"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the chairs are so close together. When passenger wanted to incline their chairs it would be too far back to be comfortable for the person behind. And to sit on the plane for a long fight in this uncomfortable position is not good. They need to make sure all chairs a fixed and now obstructing passengers comfortable manner"
Cons: "You can't reach them via phone and they are horrifically slow and difficult to get ahold of."
Pros: "Ability to see a bit of Lisbon on the way"
Cons: "Baggage charges that were not shown anywhere on the website. A nasty surprise when we checked luggage. Lost wallet on plane and customer service was unhelpful."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in and boarding."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Been charged for a baggage fee even if I shown the crew that it was written FREE on my confirmation email. I shouldn't had to pay for your illegal (wrong information) email and miscommunication. It costed me 2 times $45 for it"
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like that on a 3:30 hour delay the passengers did not get information about the delay. Line for check-in was too long. More then 2 hours on the line to check-in. Uncomfortable seats (too tight)"
Cons: "Booked my flight in January to ensure good seating for my family. Checked in day before departure and all my seats were changed. Also on my return flight. No notifications. We ended up all the way in the rear of the aircraft. Totally unexceptable"
Pros: "The punctuality"
Cons: "The airplane was small for a 8-9 hours trip, the seat were super small, I'm not a big person and I was very uncomfortable in them, the crew wasn't very nice, the food was a mess the girl next to me was a vegan and they give her a cheese sandwich, entertainment didn't work well there were only 4 channels, comparing to AirEuropa very mediocre and awfull airplane, really I'm from Venezuela and even there the airplanes are better, not worthy the 600$ one way ticket I got."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent. Flight was relatively smooth."
Cons: "Seats in economy were uncomfortable. Food was fair, at best. Wine was offered with dinner(a plus) but only once."
Pros: "Food was excellent, and the cabin crew extremely nice and attentive. Amenities kit was adorable too!"
Cons: "We were in first class, and no On Demand IFE!!! You do have a personal screen in the seatback, but they only play continual loop movies. For us, we started with one movie, but then due to technical difficulties, the crew had to reboot the entire system. So once it was back up and running, they switched the movie. And even that one didn't play through....apparently, at some point they determine its "bedtime" and turn off the IFE!! Crazy in this day and age!!! Also, the plane is old and REALLY worn. Lots of dirt, tired seats, yucky bathrooms, etc. This plane needs an overhaul!! No storage anywhere in the seats either, which was shocking. And the angle lay flat seats are certainly fantastic in comparison to Coach seats, but still hard to sleep and get comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was mediocre,"
Cons: "Seats were too narrow,very little leg room,poor choices in entertainment"
Cons: "I got food poisoning from the dinner that was served. The crew was very helpful though"
Pros: "Staff couldn't have been more courteous."
Cons: "Little confusing at the gate but mainly due to poor PA system not the staff. Happens a lot at airports in my experience"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No leg room. The worst I have ever experienced and for a seven hour flight, it was unacceptable."
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing!!"
Pros: "Good crew, ok seats(economy), good tv."
Cons: "Food was, well airline food, better than you find on domestic flights."
Pros: "on time clean plane price"
Cons: "flight attendant not super friendly older plane thus enttainement outdated"
Cons: "I understand that the airplanes over that was the driest chicken I've ever seen."
Cons: "No vegetarian meals, unless you request it 48 hours in advance. Seats are incredibly uncomfortable and the planes are old. Compared to the entertainment services provided on other aircrafts for other aircraft providers, the experience is abysmal. Bathroom was also not well attended."
Cons: "I'm vegetarian and I can't chose the option when I made the checkin"
Pros: "The extra leg room in economy. The excellent typical but gourmet Portuguese food, especially the 2 appetizers plus main course."
Pros: "Left late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule. Seat was large and comfortable. All personnel were efficient, helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Did not like the food. One small, not so good tuna sandwich. Ugh!!!"
