Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."
Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."
Pros: "The crew provide good service but personally i did not like the food that could be lot better."
Cons: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"
Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"
Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"
Pros: "On line flight experience"
Cons: "The food has to improve especially they have to provide fresh food"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Good selection of meals excellent wines"
Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."
Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"

Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."
Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"

Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."

Cons: "Small cramped seats."
Pros: "Quite journey"
Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was fine"

I had to "create" of sort of barrier between the two of us with a couple of pillows. A lady sitting in the row in front of me - a 50-something y/o woman with husband and 3 kids keep on reclining her seat to the point that I was barely a couple of inches from the top of her head, even as I was eating. I had to forcefully push back ti get some room."

Pros: "Amazing hospitality. Flight attendants were so friendly. The meals and gifts made for a very pleasant flight experience"
Pros: "The dinner food was decent (breakfast was subpar)."
Cons: "We waited about an hour lined up outside of the gate to board. Then when we finally boarded late, we sat on the runway for 2 hours! This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down. We got tiny cups of water about three times on a 10.5 hour flight. Lastly, the entertainment selection was very small and limited."

Cons: "Boarding was a little slow, but the crew was nice and courteous Seating was comfortable and roomy. The food was good."

Cons: "the entertainment system is outdated"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was awesome. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was cold and the flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "Crew and flight were fine"
Cons: "Due to the way Kayak / kiwi.com booked my flights, even though both legs were on the same airline they were booked as two separate flights causing me to wait in line for two hours to get my bag and check back in in Heathrow airport."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The boarding process was very organized."
Cons: "The seat and entertainment were terrible. The TV worked only in the last hour and the seat was not comfortable. No leg room, and the passenger in front of me wasn't considerate -- I couldn't move in my chain when his chair was down)."

Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful (the way it should be) although it was over an hour late leaving LHR. The cabin was clean and in generally in good condition. Leg room was okay for a short flight. Didn't try the onboard cuisine but it looked good in the pictures, although somewhat expensive!"
Cons: "The bag drop at LHR T5 was bad. I was in line for almost 25 mins waiting to use the self-serve system. Almost every one of the 10 or so people in front of me had problems with the system and had to call over a staff member to help. It would have been so much quicker to have the 'old style' way of having check-in staff receiving bags!"
Pros: "The crew were very nice. Liked the food."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that there was no Wi-Fi access. Seat 40 DEFG doesn't feel comfortable because people were just walking in front of us."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "the Gateway was broken, so we waited and waited to deplane. Then it worked, and we still waited. We were miles from the main terminals—and about the only plane in the back and beyond. So we had to board a bus. All in it took us an hour to get off the plane and to the terminal."
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Cons: "Left standing 30 minutes during boarding process. All food and drink for sale only. Even a glass of water. No entertainment. Seat barely large enough for small person. No immigration cards available on the flight."
Pros: "Food was ok and they were pretty generous with the alcohol which I needed since the guy in front of me had a seat which allowed him to lean almost all the way back. He ignored several of my comments and none of the staff had anything to say about this even though it was pretty obvious."
Cons: "Too cramped.The guy in front of me was laying in my lap the whole trip I have short legs and my legs were hitting the seat in front. Flight left late causing problem all along the way i.e. lost luggage for three days. Nobody was particularly helpful or knew what was going on. I had to make several calls just to have somebody find the luggage. We had to go all over the place just to find somebody to give us new connecting flights. The airport there is a disorganized mess which is beyond words. Nobody wanted to take responsibility for the loss between British air and Aer Lingus and my impression over the phone was that nobody cared one wit what happened."
Pros: "Will use the service again"
Cons: "Yes love the journey"
Cons: "The crew could be quite curt at times"
Cons: "Don’t do it!! Totally disorganized airline with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Food, ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4hrs after a 5hr layover. Passengers where shifted from a warm departure area to a very cold area to wait for transportation to the plane. Overall confusion of the staff. The pane, a 747 seemed to be an earlier model plane that needed to be updated."
Pros: "Easy to board promptly"
Pros: "Nothing I didn’t make the flight"
Cons: "Heathrow security is slower than molasses and rude. They had to check my bags and it took them over an hour. They were condescending and very unprofessional. Also extremely slow."
Pros: "The movie and television options were fairly good."
Cons: "I usually enjoy the BA flight from London to Austin, but this flight was extremely uncomfortable. The seats were cramped, and when the woman in front of me leaned her seat back, I didn't have enough space on my tray table to even keep a laptop fully open. The food (chicken casserole) was also terrible, and the airline ran out of other lunch options by the time they got to the back row where I was seated."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and attentive"
Cons: "It’s an older plane. Video screens are pixelated. Seats are cramped and I’m only 5’3. Boarding process was a mess. They used 15-20 minutes calling the first class and premiere class passengers. Then announce everyone else can board in 20 minutes. I ordered a lactose free meal and got curry with caramel cream, butter, milk stick for coffee and bread. Snack was a snack sized kit kat bar."
Pros: "Flight on time, great crew and generally good service"
Cons: "plane interior was a little "tired""
Cons: "Small plqne"
Cons: "Crew didn't reach middle of plane with Food & Beverage. Lots of fussy/serving of premium passengers but economy not really looked after. Was bashed into 3 times by same member of crew walking up aisle and not once apologised."
Pros: "That we landed safely."
Cons: "Seats were cramped and both the aircraft and service on the London to Lagos routes were mediocre. Service on the U.S. legs was definitely better than that on the Europe to Africa route."
Pros: "Nothing in particular but it was positive."
Cons: "It was quite crowded but still fine. I would have appreciated a snack and a drink but this is not a reason to be disappointed."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and especially pleasant."
Cons: "The crew was very attentive and especially pleasant."
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly. Everything ran smoothly. Baggage was fast"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "everyone was very nice-thank you"
Cons: "The change of seats with the motove of keeping balance on the plane"

Cons: "The was delayed. Seat are not too comfortable for long trips"
Pros: "The meals are delightful and the people are very respectful."
Cons: "Size of seats in economy"
Pros: "The pilot was great and got us to our destination and the bags came out quickly."
Cons: "There are no outlets for charging on this outdated flight and the seatbelt were dirty with crusty food. The TV was surprisingly tiny...like the smallest I've ever seen. The check in was also awful. The person that checked us in had no mercy. He made me shift around my bag for .8 kg"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow."
Cons: "food was not good."
Pros: "The staffs were brilliant"
Pros: "The food out of London was excellent, as was the overall service."
Cons: "The flight was oversold and so I lost my seat, and had to wait on standby before I was given a seat, even though I had an assigned seat when I booked my ticket. Very bad!"
Pros: "None of my nine checked in luggage arrived. The following 8 of the 9 came. One is still missing. This is a British Airways ticket using American Air for the first leh."
Cons: "The fact that my luggage and that of my children did not arrive."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Courteous service"
Cons: "Rude staff, messy service, lack of information and communication"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "We booked World plus, extra money, and they put us in the last row against wall where the seats hardly recline. I complained but we were well into our flight when we told the stewardess she did not get back to us regarding changing seats. She came back about 20 minutes laterwith unacceptable seats,far from our overhead and we could not sit together. We declined. My husband had to board early because his foot was in a special brace after recent surgery. They could only move him to a center seat where he would hae to risk someone stepping on his foot. We are 70 years old.We had one small meal on an 8.5 hour flight."
Cons: "I WANT TO CAHNGE TIME OF FLIGHT. BRITISH ASKED TO HIGT PAYMENT. IN THIS AMOUNT I CAN BUY TWO TIKETS IN LOW COAST COMPANY AND I HAVE ENOUTH MONEY TO BUY FOOD. PERSON THAT BUY TIKET FROM THE SITE CAN'T CHOISE A SITE AND ITS COME AUTOMATIC WITHOUT TO CAHNGE/"
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "They lost my bag due to flying a 3rd party "Vueling" and did not add my FF# and would not do it at the airport so now I have to sort through online pages and phone queues to do something that definitely should have been feasible and included at airport (I added it on my outbound flight but because of this 3rd party being the originating operator of my return flight it was not included on my return)."
Cons: "The clarity about baggage fees, really unclear and very expensive."
Cons: "The flight wasn't full but still had some people seated next to each other. Flights should allow for social distancing right now"
Cons: "Did you know the flight was changed?? It moved from Nov 24 to Nov 25. I was never informed of this change that was supposedly made in October.. Even you (kayak) didn’t know bc you still think I took the flight that I booked on your site! I was forced to rebook with another airline and will be expecting a refund and then some and possibly dispute the charge all together."
Pros: "Very happy with the service and seat comfort. Thank you"
Cons: "I was surprised by a $120 fee for luggage. I don't remember any indication from Kayak or from TAP about a luggage fee when I booked or when I got confirmation. Further, I found out that if I had indicated that I had luggage 3 days prior to checkin, I would have only been charged $92 saving me $."
Cons: "Avoid Lisbon airport and TAP Air Portugal at all costs. A 1 hour connection at the inefficient Lisbon airport resulted in a 9HOUR DELAY. MISERABLE. Air Portugal didn’t allow adequate connection time."
Cons: "Not missing our connecting flight because if flight / airport delays."
Cons: "Delayed by 30 hours with very little assistance, no money or spare clothes. Shocking treatment by TAP staff. Will NEVER fly with them again."
Cons: "A little too warm but not unbearable. We paid extra for seats together but did not get to pick them. We would have preferred a window but were in the middle 2 of 4."
Pros: "We were lucky that the flight was not full, more space and comfort. Our special meals ordered in advance were provided how ever a little limited Flight was generally smooth and we arrived earlier than scheduled even though we have left later than scheduled. Great service. New, Clean and comfortable aircraft The process while in transit at Lomé was fast and simple."
Cons: "The fasten seatbelt was constantantly on (not only while in turbulence) Though we had two full rows available for us, the seat handles could not be lifted; hence the full row could not be utilized... No entertainment at all. This can be advised ahead for you to come with adequate tablet."
Cons: "I arrived 13 hours late, had two extra flights. I was delayed 3 hours first flight, 1.5 hours second flight after watching two flights that I “wasn’t allowed” to be on depart right in front of me at 9 and 10 instead of the 11 that they rebooked me on. Once I landed in Lisbon after the second flight that o wasn’t supposed to take. We missed the connection by 5 minutes and there were many people flying to my same destination. I had to wait 5 hours in Lisbon when I shouldn’t have ever went to Lisbon. I bought a ticket from Newark to Zürich through Porto 10 hours in total. I think TAP overbooked everyone and seated us on purpose. The secondflight was delayed due to “bad weather” and it was perfectly nice outside. Shame on TAP. I’m sure other people are complaining."
Pros: "I’m taking offFlight was smooth and service was great."
Cons: "Flight was smooth and service was great. Long wait before taking off."
Pros: "Cancelled flight. Charged for bags even though we prepaid for them."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "When TAP couldn’t get me to Lisbon in time to make my connection they added a flight to Madrid where I waited until 16:00 to fly to Seville. I talked to several TAP representatives and none were helpful or apologetic and they offered me nothing for the problems they caused. I missed my only day in Seville due to this. This trip turned out to be a disaster."
Cons: "The plane was very small service was not good and the crew were not that friendly"
Pros: "Quick... I was happy to be out of there"
Pros: "Boarding, crew, timeliness, choice of entertainment, modern plane."
Cons: "Food could be more inspired, legroom is limited"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay!"
Cons: "When the flight was delayed the people at the desk did not make an announcement about the delay, what was causing it and what we could expect. People waiting had to find out through rumors. There was no good communication. We also were unable to choose our seat and were stuck in the two middle seats when there were free aisle seats still available. My controller for the tv didn't fit back into the holder easily at all and my husband got a blood blister trying to force it back in. Headrest to hold my head didn't stay put to give proper support while trying to sleep."
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Newark so we missed our connection in Portugal which was supposed to take us straight to Venice. Instead TAP gave us a replacement flight to Madrid and then from Madrid to Venice A FLIGHT WITH TWO STOPS IS NOT WHAT WE WANTED OR PAID FOR. Madrid was also delayed and we missed our connection to Venice. We got a new flight from Madrid to Venice and had to wait 5 hours for it. A trip from New Jersey to Venice ended up taking OVER 24 HOURS!!!! Due to the disgraceful disorganization and service of TAP PORTUGA we missed our best friends rehersal dinner a memory we would have loved to have. Extremely disorganized, terrible customer service OH AND WE HAD TO PAY FOR OUR BAGS TWICE to get reimbursed later but I don’t believe anything Tap Portugal says so we’ll see. Staff advice did not align and they were unapologetic for the experience we received."
Cons: "Everything. The travel experience was a literal nightmare and not what we paid for. It’s criminal actually."
Pros: "They solved the problem of my sit. But i almost have a hurt attack"
Cons: "When I get to check my tickets they told me that I was in stand by. I have to fight to get my sit."
Cons: "bad experience- The personnal was not that good! Lack of manners! Bording was evryone for himself; people with children left behind, evryone got in, all at once. The food was very bad, usual it is good..I dont know if i would fly again with TAP"
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential."
Cons: "My wife and I arrived to the airport for our honeymoon extremely excited. We had been saving for our trip to Italy for months, and we were finally going to get things started. Everything fell apart when we went to check in and we were told that my wife couldn’t use her ticket because she had changed her last name. We were told that there was no way that the name on the ticket could be changed because of TSA regulations. Of course, we were also told that we could have changed the name had we purchased a more expensive ticket. In other words, we were lied to and told the issue was regulation, when really they wouldn’t help us because we couldn’t afford a more expensive ticket. The only help we were given was the pleasure of paying over $1,500 more to get my wife on the flight. I am in the process of trying to get this refunded, but as of now we have paid twice for my wife to fly, and neither ticket has been refunded. We may have accidentally broken a rule, but the only function that rule seems to have is to make us pay twice for the same seat. As of now, I would never fly this airline again, and I would warn everyone away from it. I will update this post if TAP does the right thing by two honeymooners."
Pros: "Meal was OK."
Cons: "TAP changed our seats even though we had paid extra. They were narrow and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Friendliness flight attendees Service on board Equipment/ tv Food beverage service Language skills of flight attendants"
Cons: "Poor entertainment"
Pros: "I liked being able to exit the plane at the end of the flight"
Cons: "The seats were cramped and it’s upsetting how you can’t select your own. Flying overseas for 7 plus hours it’s best not to be sandwiched in between two strangers, some of which were vomiting the entire flight due to turbulence that the pilot announced would only be minor."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Had to wait forever to find out Gate Number."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No VOD No food available in between meals"
Pros: "I got to London"
Cons: "9 hour delay"
Cons: "My round trip ticket was purchased and in the confirmation it stated that it included one free checked bag. i also went online to reserve a window seat which cost 12.95. When I got to the airport I was told I had to pay 110 for my one checked bag as well as they had moved me to an aisle seat. Basically scammed me out of 122.95. I have complained with ygthe airline and if it is not resolved I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "There were no power outlets"
Pros: "If your traveling with a child they are the best! Legroom was good, seats were confortable, and entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible but I guess I'm lucky the served it. Didnt like that they changed the baggage policy after I purchased my ticket and wouldnt honor the old."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room between you and the seat in front of you. Huge plane. Very nice."
Cons: "My video screen did not have English available"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "The whole flight, TAP decided to use low cost aircrafts to do long distance flights ..... very poor. Far too much Discomfort no entertainment at all."
Cons: "This airline is not notoriously delayed but has a penchant for losing luggage. Within 2 weeks they managed to lose my luggage twice and that on totally unrelated trips! Booooh."
Cons: "The monitors did not work."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good info on delay"
Cons: "No offer of coffee in businesss when woke up. Still 35-40 before landing"
Pros: "Some staff were helpful"
Cons: "To start off our trip we weren't allowed to get on the plane until an hour after our boarding time. After we were allowed on, the air conditioning was not working and continued to sit on the tarmac not even leaving our terminal for another two hours. Within this two hours there were many elderly people asking for help and one specific gentleman whom was in his late 70s, informed the people around him that he had a pacemaker was pleading to get some air conditioning to the point where 6 people on the airplane were fanning him off. It was 90 degrees in the airplane and we had been sitting in the plane without any help even pleading with the attendents to let the elderly off so they did not pass out. Once we reached the 2 hour mark without any ac the gentleman in his late 70s was beginning to lose consciousness and many people had to call the emergency services, and the crew on flight TP214, tried to tell us everything was fine while the plane was pulling away from the terminal ... as they were giving the man oxygen, even though the elderly gentleman had lost the ability to communicate verbally and was about to pass out. They had to pull the plane back off the tarmac fully delaying us 3 hours in the process making us miss our other two flights. Once we were finally in the air for the 6 hour flight our entertainment system was not working so we were left to twiddle our thumbs for the remainder of the trip. It really ruined what seemed to be an exciting trip and I highly doubt we would ever take TAP Portugal ever again or recommend it to anyone no matter the price."
Pros: "flight was smooth and comfortable"
Cons: "no entertainment whatsoever, felt like low cost airline, food was okay, nothing special."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food, complimentary wine!"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom because I'm 6'4". Was given a different seat and still charged."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly, planes are in good condition, meals were served, luggage arrived safely, flights were on time."
Cons: "I was put on standby for both legs due to the flights being overbooked. No entertainment provided. Poor communication from ground staff"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working and will restart itself during 10 minutes EVERY 10 minutes. Very inconvenient. The flight attendants were impolite too."
Pros: "Had all the wine I could drink."
Cons: "The flight was too late for our connections."
Pros: "The on-board crew was pleasant and professional unlike the check-in staff. Food was ok, landing was smooth."
Cons: "The airline makes money by having very low weight allowances on carry-on and checked luggages. The staff at the check in desk act like they are surprised and symphatetic about the overages meanwhile they enforce the weight limits to the gram. Most deplorable of all is the fact that they have one person on staff at a special desk where one can go to pay for the newly discovered overages. This desk and the person assigned to it full time is the proof that the company expects this kind of result before hand. Where on most continental flights the weight limit is usually set at 31 kilograms for checked-in baggages TAP Portugal has a limit of 23kg. Where most companies have no weight limit or around 20kg on carry-on baggage they have 8kg. The overages in weight result in a flat fee of $100 per luggage, even if the luggage is just one kilogram over the allowed limit. The low ticket purchase price is in my opinion a deplorable marketing scheme aimed at getting people to buy their tickets and then be faced with extra charges when it turns out weight alloweances are set at domestic standards."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again."
Cons: "Really bad service from flight staff, they seemed totally disinterested. Menu distributed in business class was impressive, but once it was my turn to choose only one option remained. Odd it seems they had a lot of the cheaper ones, plenty of pasta, but very few servings of the other options."
Cons: "Rude staff."
