Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. We had a two-hour delay due to a mechanical issue, but the crew took care of it as quickly as they could."
Cons: "It was just a relatively quick, unremarkable flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly. I was not expecting walking down to the tarmac to board the plane. But flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Checking in didn’t open until 2 hours before plane was scheduled to take off. Really? We got to airport early so we could eat dinner. You are depriving the airport of revenue. Not to mention we had to stand there for over an hour. And then just one agent showed up. Terrible service and planning."
Pros: "Love the service on Alaska. Crew were incredibly nice!"
Pros: "Guess what, we took off and arrived on time!"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, cleanliness of cabin, actual cod fish (not tilapia/suay) etc. For dinner. Good Swedish scotch too"
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "Made an effort to avoid the turbulence."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable."
Cons: "Not sure why they only have like 20 movies, most of which are not good. Delta has hundreds of movies to choose from. Old and new. When entertainment is included in the high price of these long haul trips, it helps to have a semi-decent selection."
Cons: "Didn't make connectingflight due to a bomb alert at airport. sAS didntgive any support with either food or hotel. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Cons: "I order through Kayak, which took me to priceline...Got my ticket and thought everything was fine...Until I got to the airport, apparently I got a SAS lite ticket and they charged me to check 3 bags 210 Euros...Unreal. I think its pricelines fault because they did not even offer bagage as an option..."
Pros: "Late delay and no service from flight staff"
Cons: "The 70 euro bag check fee"
Cons: "Bag drop line was over 45 min. Only 2 attendants. Flight was late taking off. Baggage fee was outrageous. Site said 1 free bag, but that is carry on only. Checked bag was €70!!!! The flight was only $85."
Pros: "SAS is the best airlines !!"
Pros: "Even though this was an older model plane, the cabin at least did not feel like an oven, which was the case when we flew SAS to Copenhagen."
Cons: "This was a 9 hour flight where if the lights were off, a baby would sleep. Instead, the lights were left on to encourage the purchase of food/drink and airmail knick knacks."
Cons: "During online check in and through the website, I was informed that I would be able to have one free checked bag. I was never prompted that I would have to pay additional. However, when I arrived at the airport, I was told that I had to pay an additional $75 to check my bag in even though my boarding pass stated I was able to check in one bag. I was then pushed back and forth through the airport to complete this process. I would have liked to be given warning if I had to pay any additional costs."
Pros: "Temperatures was good not very hot. Has a handicapped bathroom."
Cons: "Cabin light was only slightly dimmed during the 8 hrs flight. Then instead of gradually brighten the light. They just flip the switch to full blast. I think they are trying to sell you more duty free than letting their customers rest. Not ok!"
Pros: "personnel is very courteous."
Cons: "cofee is terrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Cons: "Crew was rude. Had to ask 3 times for a drink before I actually got it and they snarled at me about having to pay. I didn't care about paying, at that pout I would have paid $100 for some water. Seats are RIDICULOUSLY small and when the person in front of you puts their seat back it's impossible to do anything. Forgot having your tray table down."
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "A bottle of water along with the standard pillow and blanket at each seat. Never had a long line for the bathroom (dumb luck?)"
Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Cons: "I didn't.t like your movies selection? Not very current. the food was awful. Not being able to book a seat until I arrived from Amsterdam."
Pros: "as advertised - premium economy"
Cons: "no complaint or concern"
Pros: "Quick and easy, nice cabin crew. I experienced no difficulties before or during this flight."
Cons: "We did not get food in this flight, it was not necessary because it was only a 1h 25m flight, so I cannot rate it."
Pros: "The entertainment system is top notch. And the food was actually good. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't use the WiFi without paying extra, even on an international flight. The seats are among the most uncomfortable I have ever flown in. There is so little room that it is virtually impossible to sleep, even on an 8-hour flight. The purser's English was atrocious, nearly incomprehensible, and he didn't seem to care whether anyone understood him or not."
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "Food good; nice drinks selection; no food available on demand"
Cons: "Inattentive service; few entertainment options"
Cons: "Wasn't assigned a seat and had to stand in a long line to wait to confirm that I had a seat for a flight I booked over 3 months earlier."
Cons: "I was traveling with two small children (my grandchildren ). The crew was unhelpful and unfriendly . I don't think I will fly SAS again"
Pros: "Connecting flight from Hamburg was late so gate personnel graciously gave me an upgrade."
Pros: "Very professional and accommodating staff. Acceptable food. Efficient and on time boarding."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but legroom was too little to get comfortable on such a long flight."
Cons: "no vegetarian food I am always told should have ordered at booking but this option is always made obscure, difficult or impossible too cramped and plain full to capacity"
Cons: "Check in took two hours! Gmhad to wait in line to "check" our bag and then wait in another to "pay" for our checked bag and get boarding passes. Very inefficient."
Cons: "I had the same seat as I originally chose, but my husband's seat was changed without any consent and he had to change from the isle seat to the middle seat. Due to this, he could not sleep at all in 8-hour flight. I bought the ticket well in advance and chose the seats, and that was all in vain. I have no idea why it happened, and we are very disappointed."
Pros: "Quick boarding and unboarding! Made up the time when we left a little late."
Cons: "Didn't get a little back of pretzels ;)"
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Cons: "The meals were mediocre and should be up to the standard of the rest of SAS service. The selection of movies could have been wider. They do help pass the time."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a special needs man and the crew was extremely unhelpful towards him. He should not have been flying alone and they did not help him at all. When you handed out the customs form he told the stewardess he needed help and she ignored him. When I pressed the call button for him it took someone 35minutes to come back and then she told him she would help him after dinner. I pressed a call button the second time to help him find something and again it took over 30 minutes for someone to come back to us. If there was a real emergency this delay would have been a huge problem. The stewardess was extremely rude in general."
Pros: "From finding affordable tickets to the moment we left the flight we had a wonderful experience again on SAS. Boarding was simple, we left on time, the flight was smooth and enjoyable, crew and food wonderful. It was a super experience so thank you SAS!"
Cons: "Nothing negative at all."
Cons: "60euros for the first checked-in bag??? Ridiculous."
Pros: "Entertainment system."
Cons: "Food. In flight announcements were barely audible at times."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 2 minutes after departure time. Staff was rude when we tried asking questions. It took an additional 2 hours to rebook on another airline and we had to spend an extra night in a hotel near the airport."
Pros: "Overhead storage adequate."
Cons: "Cramped (standard coach)as rhe person in front of me reclined his seat. Unhappy that I was required to pay extra to select a seat in standard coach when I made my reservation weeks ago. An airline's price should include selection of an available seat. Requirement to pay for even one drink on a transatlantic flight seemed cheesy."
Cons: "Lost 4 out of 10 pieces of luggage from our group, and damaged one piece. Got 2 pieces of luggage 5 days later, one piece 7 days later, and the last one 9 days later."
Pros: "food and movies were great. appreciated the coffee and tea"
Pros: "I thought the food was very good and the staff very efficient and helpful"
Pros: "Great choice of movies."
Cons: "Having to pay for soft drinks (except water) on a transatlantic flight. Food was just correct."
Pros: "Arlanda airport is quiet and fast. Security line took less than 5 minutes. The terminal was quiet and had a good place to lie down and take a nap. I did not feel anxious or tense like I always do in US airports. SAS is a great airline with pleasant crew and decent food. (Great food by airline standards.) Entertainment is great too -- lots of free movies on the built-in screen. My only complaint is that the airplane wifi wasn't free."
Cons: "Not allowing babies in first class. Couldn’t sleep with the baby crying."
Pros: "Fast, one stop, better than three weeks on a boat"
Cons: "Broken entertainment center, no vegan meal although selected at booking, very cold."
Pros: "Crew was great, the airplane was big with a leg room!!!"
Pros: "Overall good flight"
Pros: "Nice crew, great flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed both ways and we were late for connecting flight and stayed at hotel for 1 night"
Cons: "They lost my bag!"
Pros: "It was Ok."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class - wonderful!"
Cons: "Delightful service and food."
Cons: "Boarding could've been faster."
Pros: "The food, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was completely awful"
Cons: "Food is not the best I had on an airplane but crew is super nice and accommodating ,airplane is clean,overall a great experience"
Pros: "Service.On time.Comfortable seats.Friwndliness of flight attendants."
Cons: "On board WiFi ."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seat was very tight (middle section, middle seat)"
Pros: "The only good thing was that it got me from Point A to Point B and my bag wasn't lost or damaged."
Cons: "The seats are so incredibly small for a long haul flight. Two people must compete for shoulder space, as there simply isn't enough room for both to sit back completely. Constant elbow issues and a feeling of being locked into a small space. I've never been so happy to exit from a flight. Note that on the JFK-BUD-JFK route, LOT subcontracts to a low-cost Portuguese airline, so this plane isn't configured for a trans-Atlantic flight, at least not for a minimal level of comfort. Never again. Pay more for a decent seat on another carrier! And take a large bottle of water, as they're not at all generous with the water, soda, and juice. My seatmate and I were parched and couldn't wait to clear customs so as to buy a bottle of water."
Pros: "Crew was really helpful and friendly. They took care of us completely. Boarding, take off, landing, everything on time."
Cons: "Airplane didn't provide flight specifics. (Speed, altitude, outside temperature). Just basic info. Seats in this particular plane are really narrow. Everytime someone passing hit my shoulder. This didn't happen in other planes."
Pros: "food was great, boarding was a horrible process."
Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "The boarding was very slow."
Pros: "Great price for a one way ticket to NYC Modern and comfortable Boeing 787 Dreamliner Courteous crew"
Cons: "Little more organized boarding area Not sufficient new movie titles but it was OK"
Pros: "Seat comfort. Smooth flight."
Cons: "55min delayed boarding at JFK, 55min delayed landing ans 35min awaiting gate access upon landing at JFK."
Pros: "Courteous, knowledgeable and professional crew. Fast boarding. Direct flight."
Cons: "No wifi. Little room if person sitting in front leans back."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "We took off and landed an hour late than planned. Since we came-in late we waited additional two hours until we were able to get off"
Pros: "The multilingual, very professional crew is one of the best we've traveled with. All of them are willing to help, accommodate, which was extremely important for us due to my husband's medical issues. Much obliged."
Pros: "The entire cabin crew was excellent. Service fabulous. Requested vegetarian meal. It was supurb. Very unusual for flight from. Eastern European countries They exceeded my expectations . Thank you"
Cons: "Boarding from. EWR WAS lousy. Flight going to Warsaw was delayed to start with . They did not announced . Only shown on screen. They have to definitely announce to the passengers THEY WILL BOARD AS PER GROUP NO. . NEED NOT MAKE A BIG LINE JUST RELAX ON THE CHAIR . PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF STANDING in the line for a long time May be they need to have more group Nos to easy facilitate boarding . This is only a suggestion. If they want to improve customer experience and travel again with them"
Pros: "Business class was very roomy. There was easy access to storage. The flight crew was extremely courteous and did their very best to see to the needs of the passengers."
Cons: "The seats, when in reclining position, could have been a bit more comfortable."
Pros: "The VEG meal (non-dairy) I was served was fresh and delicious to eat. Flight attendants pleasant, professional and service-oriented. My luggage made it to NYC/JFK without any problems."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment offered a very conventional set of movies from which to select."
Cons: "I was forced to check in my hand luggage, but the Amsterdam personnel attached to it a tag without any flight information, so this luggage missed my plane in Warsaw on the connecting flight and arrived later that day as misplaced piece. LOT needs to fix the hand luggage tagging system on connecting flights."
Cons: "Terrible old plane, with tv that don't work and are from 50s. Food was really really bad"
Cons: "Departure late about 4 hrs, little information along the way. More waiting at arrival for gate to open up due to late arrival. Seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The wait until we could get off the plane after landing due to the fact that there weren't any gates available."
Cons: "Going to board the plane and they told a group of like 30 of us we had been selected for random security check. So obviously it took a long time to get all those people through the check and we departed very late. Then sat on the tarmac for an hour and forty five minutes. The pilot said it would be 15 minutes and then never gave another update beyond that, which made it much worse."
Pros: "I have been flying with them for the past 16 years(economy seats), and I have to say that their service,and comfort of overnight flights have improved tremendously! Partially due to the fact that they have 787 Dreamliners now, in which the seats are wider and are reclining more than before, the leg room is bigger, the air quality better. The crew members are very professional,not overly sweet,yet caring and understanding,especially when you are flying with small children.As to those complaining about overcharged luggage- read the rules people! If you go over the maximum limit of 50lb for a check in, let's say 2lb,they won't charge you,but don't expect them to close their eyes when your luggage weighs almost double that!"
Cons: "The food is ok, nicely packed, but even if you don't like it they have extra options to purchase for a small price."
Pros: "Modern aircraft, food, extraordinary fligjt attendants"
Cons: "I wish that had wifi."
Pros: "they were not very late - within one hour."
Cons: "For three of us we had only one bag to check. They charged us 70 euro for that bag. All their flights were 30-60 minute late."
Pros: "When we got to the airport on the way back home, they couldn't find our tickets. I had online tickets and confirmation, but we were still not on the flight list. We had to go to the ticket counter for them to clear it up and put us back on the flight. The flight itself was not bad. The flight attendants are a bit rude and condescending. The seats and entertainment was not bad."
Cons: "1. Cancelled our outgoing flight hours before it was set to leave; notified us via email; barely got re-booked via different airlines and had to take 3 different flights to reach out destination; missed the 2nd flight because LOT put us on a flight that was departing 30 minutes before out 1st flight arrived. 2. When we got another 2nd flight, we arrived at our final destination without our bags. LOT assured us that our bags were on our flight before we boarded but calling and confirming that they were able to transfer our bags (only had 40 minutes between flights), but of course, it was a complete lie. We did not get our bag until the next day in the evening over 24 hours later. At that point I was happy they found them and gave them to us. 3. Turns out, they cancel flights pretty often and they also book people on transfer flights that are too close for people to make it. We traveled with a handful of other passengers that had the same experience and people were in tears about their horrible travel experience. 4. Warsaw Airport - they only have 5 passport control officers clearing travelers and because they don;t have lines or any type of organization of these travelers, the lines our out of control. People are pushing each other, crying because they are missing flights or not feeling well because of no air and all the pushing and shoving. I was pregnant standing in the line for over 40 minutes. They would not let pregnant passengers or passengers with kids with them pass in their disabled line. Only people in the wheelchairs were allowed to pass there. Horrible airport and even more horrible airline! PLEASE SPARE YOURSELF AND DO NOT RUIN YOUR VACATION."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "At boarding we were told we needed an additional security clearance "that way". When we searched for it and couldn't find it, we asked two different employees and they didn't know or offer to help. We finally found it but it wasn't a good experience. And finding out at boarding time was not helpful."
Cons: "There was a delay at Warsaw Airport for almost 3 Hours I arrived home 2.00 Am I missed a family wedding that night"
Cons: "Unpleasant crew members"
Cons: "Unable to choose seat at ticket purchase."
Cons: "Many people on this flight were bothered by the fact that their families were split up all over the airplane and no one could sit together. During boarding there were groups of people who had all been split up and were desperately trying to switch seats with others. I was traveling with a 15 year old, and even though she is not a small child it was very nerve wrecking to be seated 20 rows behind her, not being able to keep an eye on her (even more so because she gets car sick and has thrown up on airplanes before). I don't think I've ever flown where my group was not at least seated in pairs. This was very disappointing."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was ok. They usually charge for any alcoholic beverages, though."
Cons: "Extremely rude staff (allowed a passenger to almost break my hand luggage with hers, and literally laughed at my concern,) kept us on plane for 2+ hours with minimal info given on the problem, then de-planed and kept us waiting at Warsaw airport for another 2 hours (no food, water or even a manager appeared until the end of that 4 hours, by the way, and only after a screaming mob of passengers formed,) then kept us on the new plane for nearly another 2 hours. This made for an approximate 6 hour delay, with minimal comfort, food, water, info or sympathy throughout, nor an offer to switch our flights and/or provide night accommodation due to the 5+ hour delay on this evening flight (as is within our passenger rights.) The plane finally arrived to JFK way after 1 a.m., which completely ruined weekend work and social plans, not to mention how exhausting and disrespectful of an experience it was. PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERY SINGLE OF THE FOUR LOT FLIGHTS I'D UNDERTAKEN THAT WEEK WERE DELAYED IN A SIMILAR FASHION - AS IN, WITH LITTLE INFO OR EXCUSE. No, thanks, Lot - and you should refund us all."
Pros: "Pleasant personal, great service!"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly. On this flight we had a delicious meal, snacks, drinks, refreshing towels. What an great experience after flying in the US where all these services have disappeared for bottom line profits."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. food was free"
Cons: "Then the flight from warsaw to JFK was fine, but when we landed there was only 10 minutes for me to get to my next flight and i asked the attendant if she could call my gate ahead and tell them I'm trying to make it, and she grunted and told me to sit back down. Then i proceeded to go to baggage claim where my bag never showed up and when I finally saw that it wasn't showing up I sprinted to my next flight and got to the door 15 seconds after it closed. Then i had to spend the night in NYC and was unable to go to buffalo unitl the morning after having spent already the whole day in the airport since my first flight didn't take off until about 5 hours after it was scheduled. And now I still do not have my bag, and jet blue says they never got it from LOT airlines"
Cons: "The crew had everyone measure their suitcases and pay for overweight, which significantly delayed boarding."
Pros: "Service, attention, every single detail was perfect while the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to say at this point"
Cons: "15 minute delay waiting for a gate to become available after taxiing to the terminal at JFK. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "Plane delayed, missed connecting flight, spent 7 hours at airport waiting for next plane."
Pros: "Fly itself but waiting at all too long"
Cons: "Long wait till start and long wait for arrival...at all 6hours waiting inside the plane"
Pros: "Food and stewardess."
Cons: "It's my last time with lot. They should learn some manners and not to try every possible way to get money from passengers. Shame on you LOT."
Pros: "All was well from checking in to baggage claim."
Cons: "A delay of about 20 mins"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Be on time and that they dont loose my bags! Wait for and extra 2 hours in the arrival airport because of the lost"
Pros: "Crew was caring and attentive to plane cleanliness. Smiling, friendly, yet, fully professional."
Cons: "Company plays games with attractive low fares but extra charges for seating and luggage"
Pros: "on time, food"
Cons: "I asked male attendant for pillow and blanket , he said no!!!!!!!!!!! foot rest would not stay in upright position, I could not remove remote from back of chair, outlet for headphones was broke."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good. The hot meal was very good."
Cons: "We would have appreciated water being served between the meals; it was a very long time with nothing.The cold meal was just ok. We paid extra for our seats and were very disappointed at being stuck in the middle where it is difficult to move or get up. It would have been nice to be able to actually"
Pros: "There was a major problem with my booking and I went through almost 2 hours or stress thinking I would not be let on the flight. This has never happened with Kayak. But it was really bad. TAP insisted they could not book me on as Azores Airlines from Pinta Delgado to Toronto was not booked for me. I had to call bothe airlines. With no help from the desk. I finally got both to confirm and at the last minute was allowed on the flight. I chose this route to have a nice couple of days in Portugal and I will have. But the flight start was really upsetting."
Cons: "I like Kayak. But am very concerned about booking through in the future with this treatment."
Cons: "I had to pay to check the first piece of luggage 85€ one way. I was not inform of that when I bough the ticket and I could have chosen a different airline If I had considered that expense. The first piece used to be free intercontinental flights but now it varies depending on the company. I find difficult to find this information when buying and it makes a great difference in the final price you pay. I found strange flight attendants having a very loud conversation in a very quiet flight where most of the people were sleeping."
Pros: "In flight meal was one of the best I have ever had."
Cons: "Could not choose when to start a movie. If you wanted to watch one, you had to turn it on from the beginning or you would start in the middle. Plane could have been cooler as well."
Cons: "75 euros per bag on an international flight is robbery. I was also on my honeymoon, which I know shouldn't guarantee anything, but wow did it leave a bad impression, particularly when I hear stories of free upgrades all the time and I couldn't even get a free bag."
Pros: "The crew was great. Happy crew is a fun crew to be around."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Late takeoff. Late arrival. Had to run thru the terminal to catch the next leg. Lost luggage."
Pros: "Nice and clean aircraft, snack on the way to Lisbon"
Cons: "Cramped seats (very),"
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to business class and is like wasting money, the seat on business class was not working good"
Cons: "Though the weather was fine - no excuse - the 7 hours delay! the fact that instead of landing in Newark (my original reservation), we landed in JFK! VERY INCONVENIENT AND AN EXTRA EXPENSE! The fact that in Lisbon airport I had to wait more than one hour to reach the help desk and then plead to receive a voucher for refreshment (left Madeira on an early flight, no breakfast on that flight, the flight to NY delayed till 5 PM!). I chose TAP because it was the most direct way to reach Madeira - but the delays on both flights were more than unfortunate - it was simply poor service."
Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for my only bag! Didn’t know it wasn’t in the coat of the ticket"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardessen were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "flight was delayed. ended up missing our flight from newark home."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't come around with anything to drink, except with meals. All international flights I have been on offer multiple drinks through the flight. They charged $80 for a suitcase. This was not a discounted ticket."
Cons: "was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Food and snacks were good. Very attentive crew."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "I like the flight per se and the crew attention"
Cons: "The boarding process. It was slow, disorganized, didn't take off on time and some people were rude including the searching process that I enter voluntarily because nobody directed me. I when you schedule a flight you should try to take off on time because it can be disruptive for everyone. And when you sell discount tickets at least say you are going to charge 45 dollars for the bag... i wouldn't purchase any discount offer"
Pros: "since it was an older plane maybe it had more leg room"
Cons: "poor quality video and sound for watching movies on long flight attendants were brusque and ignored most passengers(except the ones with special meals) we were on connecting flight with little time in between to grab water or snack - so we sat on this flight for over two hours before we got any refreshments. Some passengers got refills before we got one. Poor execution. we had to check two bags on connecting flight (which we didn't have to do before) and it cost us time and money. Also they lost the two bags - got several days after we got back from trip huge line at immigration - we waited almost two hours will not travel on TAP again"
Pros: "Food, seats, flight attendants & in flight entertainment were all very good."
Pros: "The food in Economy was way better than usual U.S. airline food. Ground staff in Newark were helpful in retrieving a book I left on the plane. Captain had the seat belt sign off early and turned it back on late in descent which allowed people to visit the restrooms. Video entertainment was good."
Cons: "Captain should have made more P.A. announcements during the coast in over Cape Cod to point out areas of interest"
Pros: "Attendants were great throughout. Prompt takeoff. Food was good; drink service even better! Best movie selection I've seen on commercial planes. Seat was comfy. I enjoyed the flight very much and will always consider flying with TAP."
Pros: "Center aisle seat was comfortable and pnethy of room for my carryon overhead and underseat."
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (Thisnflight the screen was messed up...not something you want to look at for 8 hours. ) I couldn't eat half the food because the salad wasn't anything but cabbage and a tomato and the corn and meat dish was cold and weird. I don't know what the dessert was but I got it down. I think the sandwich I got before landing was pesto and mayonnaise but I'm not sure. I didn't get much of it down before gagging. I wish when booking a flight you were given the menu or you could choose early in the flight and then be served. I bet it would cut down on wasted food and money."
Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Pros: "The staff and no delays. Checking in , great customer services and she was vey efficient."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seats ."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and already stocked with a pillow and blanket for all. we each had a personal screen stocked with movies, music, games and flight info. at no additional cost and that was great for passing the time during a long flight from Lisbon to NY. The crew was the best part, so pleasant and helpful and professional. We were instructed to close the shades and were allowed to sleep and woken up for the custom form and the great meal which had the option of soda or wine, etc. at no additional cost. The quality of the food was impressive and the salad even came with a packet of real Portuguese olive oil and vinegar. When appropriate we all had to open the shades and drinks were served again and later a small snack of a sandwich and a juice were given all in perfect timing."
Cons: "Filthy dirty airport, club and plane. No power in the seats to boot. Clown show. Never again see above."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was a n extensive selection of great movies to choose from."
Cons: "There were 2 screaming children in the row next to me. The parents did not handle themselves well. On the brightside, the crew did everything they could to help better the situation."

Cons: "The flight was 45 min late and nobody seemed to bother about it"
Pros: "TAP and the personnel from TAP were fantastic."
Cons: "The Dutch/KLM gate agents were horrible. I was treated rudely and unprofessionally."
Pros: "Great flight! Unexpectedly good amount of food and good entertainment. On time. Seats were comfortable w good room."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty disorganized and crowded and seemed like it took even longer than it normally takes. we were lined up for a while before boarding initiated."
Pros: "lots of food and drink"
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Service was poor, the seat was not comfortable."
Pros: "Great crew."

Pros: "Quick boarding. Crew is great."
Cons: "Schiphol delays everyone's life."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Very friendly crew. Coach seating comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "It wasn't at all the airline's fault, but this flight saw random searches at the gate of carry-on luggage + patdowns of selected passengers. I understand fully the imperatives for security, However it would be nice if there were some way to signal passengers that they might want to get to the gate early...... Fortunately I'd experienced it before (same flight out of Lisbon) and knew there was a good chance of a repeat...."
Pros: "Generally good and professional."
Cons: "One washroom was permanent;y dirty because the FLUSH mechanism wasn't performing well. Another washroom was permanently locked - causing higher traffic in the remaining washrooms."
Cons: "this was a very last minute flight to return home. It was cancelled within hours. I am very disappointed."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Out of the 100+ flights I've been on in my life. TAP Portugal has been the worst and least professional."
Cons: "My first flight from Madrid to Portugal was cancelled (at midnight) so I had to sleep in the terminal because the bus they provided to the hotel couldn't take all of us. Then my flight to New Jersey was delayed several hours making me miss my next flight to Denver (home) and I had to spend a 2nd night in the terminal. I never received and hotel/food/taxi vouchers. I will do everything to avoid flying with TAP Portugal ever again."
Pros: "The worst entertainment system I've seen."
Pros: "Nice flight, clean planes, decent amount of beverages/food provided, good TVs"
Pros: "I did like that it was pretty fast"
Cons: "Crew was rude, super unfriendly and not understanding with my toddler"
Pros: "For the movies that are only viewable try the united app. They have very few licenses for viewing so if you don't grab a movie once you begin you will get an error messsge all tru the 8 hour flight. The air steward just said it is what it is and that I wasn't paying for it anyway . That the little screen in front of the seat from 1988 was enough .."

Pros: "I liked that they thought that tic tacs is a solution to a 14 hour delay. Screw you, United."
Cons: "Since I missed this connecting flight by 8 hours, the best united could guarantee was a flight 2 DAYS LATER. I had to sleep at the airport. No food vouchers, no compensation. Waited in Uniteds line for 3 hours just to talk to someone. They lost my luggage which I had PAID to check; it was sent to the wrong airport. They guanteed luggage delivery by Thursday night. It arrived Saturday morning at 3am."
Cons: "I prefer an entertainment console and monitor in the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Very scary flight"
Pros: "Despite delay, flight arrived at gate on time."
Cons: "Insufficient meals available for the passengers. Flight time was moved back twice and then up. It can really cause problems for people when departure times are moved up. In flight programs were good but no headphones provided. Good thing we brought some!"
Cons: "delays... not flying united again"
Pros: "Honestly not much"
Cons: "This flight was so delayed without clear communication about what was going on. We were rerouted mid flight as well. They made me check my backpack, because apparently now you are not entitled to both a carry on and a personal item. Attendants were rude. No power outlets on flight. This was undesirable."
Cons: "Omaha United personnel"
Pros: "I liked that the plane did not crash"
Pros: "I did not like anything and will not be flying united EVER AGAIN!!!!"
Cons: "The costumer service was bad period!"
Pros: "Boarding was on time, efficient, quick. The food was better than similar airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment & TV system was poor!!"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The gate crew was nice. I like the smaller plane."
Cons: "Too MANY Announcements . There were too many automated announcements and crew announcements after take off. There were about 6-8 announcements during a 1.5 hour flight at 7am. The first 5 announcements were the same, no new information until 1hr into flight."
Pros: "Luggage storage was large"
Cons: "Metal rails of seat in front and couldnt fit carryon below seat in front, bcharge for entertainment"
Cons: "Air temperature was too warm which caused nausea."
Pros: "organuzed boarding"
Cons: "Flight attendants and captain constantly talking at us. We need some quiet!"
Cons: "I think Kayak wasn't clear that Lufhansa and United are partners....all that Kayak put on my ticket was United. When I went to JFK I could not find United international and the airport info people said it's Lufhatnasa and then when I went to Schipol airport and went to Lufhtansa they said there is a United international check in. Kayak cost me a lot of walking and delays because they were not clear on what airline out of which airport."
Cons: "Delays, no tv, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "Boarding was seamless and quick."
Cons: "My seat was slightly dirty. No choice for a snack, which wasn't very good."
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Late to board, lots of attitude from seemingly inexperienced and unethusistic crew who bumped me constantly, and seemed annoyed to be there. Constantly hitting me and waking me up. Also my remote was the only one on the plane that didn't work, so I had to spend the whole flight awake getting bumped with no entertainmen"
Cons: "Sorry not to have had recreatiegebied towel before Dinner."
Pros: "The crews were accommodated"
Cons: "The flight was delayed on so many occasions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours. We missed the window to depart because the originating flight was over an hour late. After which there was a ground stop at the destination airport."
Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an additional 3 hours on a 2 hour layover. We left 5 hours later. It was exhausting! worst airline ever. I will never fly united again."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Cons: "They failed to unlock the restrooms after takeoff. Two hours into the flight one of three remained locked. Passengers had forcibly Opened the other two on an overbooked and full flight They were offering $150 to give up seat then raised to $500 during boarding Really? This week?"
Pros: "Excellent and content flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew members were polite and very helpful. I liked the fact that they took their time to solve other passangers problems."
Cons: "No entertainment at all!! 3 hour flight"
Pros: "It was running on time."
Cons: "The seats were super tiny and cramped! I paid for wifi and had to keep refreshing the whole time and it never really worked at all. I was sort of banking on using that flight to work and now I am late on some deadlines."
Pros: "The one pro is that the flight wasn't packed so many people were able to have a row to themselves, however the actual seats weren't the most comfortable it was an older model plane."
Cons: "Three hours of delays, two after the plane had already boarded. Once the flight crew knew we were grounded and not moving, we should have been informed exactly how long we'd be on the ground for, instead of lied to every 15 minutes for two hours straight. Absolutely no compensation or accountability for getting us to our destination much later than projected."
Cons: "it was disgusting service. We never got to make it out to Denver. Our flights kept getting canceled even though we didn't buy tickets to be on stand by. Never flying with this company ever again!!!!!"
Cons: "I have pictures and video of how dirty the plane was from the air vent all the way to the floor so disgusting do you guys ever clean the planes"
Pros: "Easy in/out of the plane."
Cons: "The waiting area was not clean. Flight was delayed by 3 hours and another 30 minutes in the airport. I missed my lunch and wanted purchase something from the menu but the crew said they don't have anything but snacks. The entertainment wifi wasn't providing anything."
Pros: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Cons: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very friendly, helpful and wonderful experience with them. I appreciate the flight leaving and arriving close to scheduled time."
Cons: "No USB charge connectors/power outlets (integral these days on a long international flight). The quality of in seat tv screen is mediocre - best to watch on your own device (but then you need the USB connection that is missing on this flight). The wifi kept on dropping in the plane (both ways). The food is not as good as served on other airlines and they ran out of dishes both ways and we did not have choices and had to eat what was available (which was not good either). Should indicate on seat selection when making purchase if there will be items below seat such as metal boxes that will limit legroom more than for other seats. I was placed at such a seat both ways, and had no legroom for over 8 hrs each way. :/"
Pros: "I like the crew. They were very friendly and great."
Cons: "The entertainment was terrible. On the way to Amsterdam, it was an old TV that had a few channels that looped the same thing over and over again. On the way back to Washington, DC, the TV didn't work."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Pros: "Much more comfortable."
Cons: "Lavatory still dirty."
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No personal device entertainment. Dirty."
Cons: "Wobbly takeoff from Denver, then an aborted landing at LGA, I won't be flying United again anytime soon."
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Not enough leg room and I'm not even a tall person"
Pros: "Comfy environment, not completely booked plane"
Cons: "The price for one little bottle of Rum, highway robbery I say."
Pros: "I liked nothing, and am sorry for the time i waist it with Alitalia. Especially after not letting me use the lounge even thought I am an elite plus with skyteam and Alitalia is one of the alliance member."
Cons: "Applying the rules and respect my skyteam elite plus membership."
Pros: "Boarding was ok compared to other Alitalia flights"
Cons: "A snack between the meals. More food options for the second meal."
Cons: "Hour delay getting on the plane, after going through boarding. No explanation as to why."
Cons: "More variety of movies"
Cons: "Delayed takeoff. That happens but very poor communication about the delay."
Cons: "The seats aren’t comfortable, the entertainment system is finicky, not much leg room."
Cons: "they must work on quality and price"
Cons: "This flight had the least legroom of any flight I've ever taken."
Pros: "Seamless boarding, departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Very surly and unhappy looking crew"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "for sure the seats, the screens and bathrooms. the plane was so old!"
Cons: "The A330 really needs a makeover... Other airlines offer a better service in Business class"
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats, entertainment system was outdated, airplane was shabby and the main meal was horrible."
Cons: "It is obvious that the airline has not invested funds to keep up and it shows. I will avoid flying Alitalia in the future."
Pros: "The crew was really extremely courteous - and because it's off season, there was a lot of spare space."
Cons: "The only less than perfect score was food, but the circumstances mitigate that less than stellar note. The warm meal and snack were better than your average over-sweet snack you get sometimes coming from Europe... We had a delay that may have impacted the food (if you keep warm food too long...)"
Pros: "nice crew on the Rome to US leg"
Cons: "Airline food is usually bad but this was inedible. Tiniest seats ever. Outdated entertainment selection. Obscene baggage fees. Never ever again- not worth the ‘deal’"
Pros: "On time and complimentary drink"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 1 hour waiting for a crew member to show up. This caused me to miss my flight to the US at DeGaulle"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "I don't think I say anything I liked."
Cons: "Food, veg option, given peaces of boiled mushrooms, Eggplants and spinach. What a horrible experience."
Pros: "Not much. Mediocre everything. Was nice that the flight was not very full."
Cons: "This was an Alitalia flight. Food was awful, flight attendants were quite rude and curt. Really poor experience overall."
Pros: "Nice entertainment, good food and staff"
Cons: "Arms rest pretty smalls"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Let you die of thirst until they finally get around to serving something"
Pros: "The easy transfer from incoming London flight to the connecting flight to Tirana without leaving the airside area of the terminal"
Cons: "Not being served a hot drink inflight. It doesn't seem such a difficult or costly service and most other airlines appear to manage it."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport at 9:00 to check in for our flight that was scheduled for departure at 12:15 and we were told that we could not check in until 2 hours before the flight (10:15). All of the passengers for flight AZ1466 lined up in front of a check-in counter that displayed Alitalia for our flight. At 10:45 they announced the check in for AZ1466 at a different check-in counter knowing full-well that everyone was lined up for flight AZ1466 on our line. So then everyone that was lined up at the first counter had to line up at the new counter. My wife and I were initially 3rd in line and then after we had to move we were in the very back of the line. On top of that, they only had 1 person checking everyone into economy (which was most of the people on the plane) and they also had to weigh everyone’s carry-on baggage. We were initially told they had weather issues with the snow in Rome and they did not know if we would take off on time or would be cancelled. However, I was getting e-mail messages from Kayak stating our flight was on-time. So how is it that a 3rd party travel company knew what was going on, but the crew at Alitalia did not? Afterward I had to go through security, wait on the tax refund line, and go straight to board the plane. After that we waiting on the plane for 50 minutes and did not take-off until 1:05 PM. These were the problems in short: 1. No one informed us that we could not check in at this particular airport until 2 hours prior to flight departure. 2. They did not begin the check in process until 90 minutes prior to departure. 3. We had to switch check-in lines and they only had 1 check-in person. 4. We had no time to shop or eat lunch at the airport. 5. We boarded the plane and waited until 13:05 to takeoff when we were scheduled to take off at 12:15 (50 minute delay). 6. We received no communications about delays from Alitalia (via e-mail or app). However, we received e-mails from Kayak stating everything was on time. We had no communication from Alitalia about the delay or that we could not check in early (which you could do at every other airport I have been to). We also had a connecting flight in Rome that we were concerned we would miss. We arrived at Rome airport on a delayed flight out of Marco Polo airport (AZ1466). Our 13:40 flight to JFK (AZ610) was delayed until 14:45. After we arrived at Rome airport we ran through the airport to our gate and boarded the plane. After we boarded the plane we waited until 16:10 to take-off (85 minute delay). We did not receive any communication from Alitalia via e-mail, the Alitalia app, or crew members that our flight was being delayed any longer than it already was. We planned on stopping to use the bathrooms in the airport, eat a decent lunch, and shop (which I promised my wife we could do at the airport). However, we could not do any of those things because we did not receive any information about delays from Alitalia. After we arrived home in New York the airline l"
Pros: "Easy boarding on time nice crew"
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Plane was clean. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "We had only an hour for our connection. Ordinarily, this is enough time. However we had to go through passport control during the connection and we almost missed our flight. When traveling internationally, this should be considered. Rome airport (FCO) could do a better job of managing passengers with quick connections. It was a mess."
Pros: "There were lots of entertainment options"
Cons: "Had my call button on for an hour to get some water to take an aspirin and no one ever came."
Pros: "I had not flown overseas in so long that I had forgotten how nice flying could be. The flight attendants were especially attentive and helpful. Not only did we get a "free" meal, but it included white or red wine if desired. I felt like I was experiencing what flying used to be like in an earlier time."
Cons: "Delay! I missed my connection! Had to spend a night in Rome! Had to be late to work Monday morning."
Pros: "pretty comfort seats, and they give u a neck pillow!"
Cons: "The flight was operated by Alitalia, so my bad review is about it: 1- they made us pay 75 euro for 4 extra kg on the luggage; 2- once on board we had to wait 45 minutes before leaving the airport; 3- there was no entertainment on the plane which looked like a very old plane; 4- they served us a tasteless sandwich and muffin(MEA flight serves a full meal) 5- the choice of drinks was poor: water, Coca cola, tea or coffee, no juices or alcohol; 6- we asked for water 3 times and the flight attendant never came back; Being an expensive flight I was expecting something more than a low coast flight company. VERY DISAPPOINTED."
Pros: "Plane in good condition with more than average roominess in economy class with accommodating crew, decent food, and entertainment."
Cons: "In Italy Alitalia was difficult to contact and failed to provide timely and complete information about changes to check in procedures, e-ticket number, and flight identification number changes. Web site clunky at best and telephone tree info all in Italian only. When I tried to check in on line only message was of a "problem" with the ticket. No way to get info even at airport until shortly before flight. Flight departed one hour late. My wife's foot room impeded by electronic control box under seat in front of her. In short, back office and online services poor but flight and plane ok. None the less, will not use Alitalia again due to back office problems."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived 35 minutes early. The flight crew was very helpful onboard."
Cons: "Tried to upgrade my elderly parents to more comfortable seats when checking in, but was told the flight was full and there were none available. It didn't appear that way after being boarded and seated."
Pros: "Not too much. Standard flight. They had ok wine I guess."
Cons: "Ancient planes. Had to use proprietary headphones, I thought they stopped doing that. No USB. Screens seemed 20 years old. It's 2017!"
Cons: "90 minute delay on a 110 minute flight!"
Cons: "flight was over 30 minutes late which is unacceptable for a 1:55 flight!!!!"
Cons: "No room and very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Check-in was great both coming and going."
Cons: "Food was easily the worst I've ever had. Staff were courteous but not friendly on board. Boarding in Rome was a free for all. Seats were extremely cramped. Bathrooms were not kept clean. The coup de grace, probably not Alitalia's fault, but JFK"s , we sat on the terminal after we landed for 45 minutes waiting for a place to park the plane."
Cons: "Worst airline company ever. Lost my baggage for 4 days although a friend of mine on the exact same flight with me received his. I'm on a snowboarding trip and they lost all my gear and basically made it impossible to enjoy my vacation. I sent 3 emails and no one has contacted me yet! I agree that these things might occur but the airline has to take responsibility for their mistakes and address the issues. WORST airline I've been to, if you are thinking of using it I double insure everything and don't count on them to be responsive!"
Pros: "Did not misplace my suitcase as they did on my October 28,2016 going to Rome. That was very stressful!"
Cons: "Alitalia customer service not answering and updating information on misplaced luggage. They acknowledged the mail...that's about it!"
Cons: "There was some issue with checking in, there was a massive line and over an hour wait just for less than an hour flight.. there was zero communications as to what was happening and there were no staff attending priority queues"
Pros: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable my husband and I have ever experienced. The huge headrest forced us to sit bent in a C shape with our heads bent down, no way to sit normally and relax. It was pretty close to torture for a long flight. I just wanted to rip the thing off the back of the seat. I will never fly on a B777 again if I can help it. Its particularly rich when the captain comes on the address system and tells us to sit back and ENJOY the flight. Additionally, boarding started a full hour before scheduled departure, then the flight was delayed an additional 45 minutes while they waited for somebody's luggage. If you boarded early, you got to enjoy sitting there nearly 10 hours for an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Same as above. I will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Meals were small and below average."
Pros: "Pilot was doing good kob"
Cons: "Flight to Amsterdam was delayed"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable seats, and lovely refreshments"
