Top 4 airlines serving from New York to Russia
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I had an isle seat and the isles were so tiny that everytime someone walked by to use the restroom, they would wind up bumping or brushing against me..... So that woke me up about 20 times as well as the crew hitting me with the drink cart."
Pros: "My flight was delayed by an hour and I missed my flight scheduled to go Mykonos"
Pros: "Crew member prepared simple pasta"
Cons: "Took real long before the meal was served and this was hard as the passenger was diabetic."
Pros: "On time Good service Just excellent It's first time for me with turkish airline but I love it"
Cons: "No thing"
Pros: "Number of times served and staff was excellent."
Cons: "Had one entree option. Take it or leave it is the only choice."
Pros: "Staff was very good and service in flight was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed at the gate from a late arrival that lead to a 2 hour delay on the tarmac. Handled well by the staff, but if we were on time to begin with, we probably would not have been further delayed."
Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. We were told we would make the flight which we didn't. We had to spend 12 hours at the airport to await the next plane to Batumi. We were given lunch vouchers but what it applied to was substandard"
Pros: "I have to say that I flew with different companies in my life, Turkish surprised me with the extra luggage and the quantity of food ( I am vegan and they gave me 2 yummy vegan meals). Also the sear were more comfortable than I expected"
Cons: "First of all the staff needs to work on their customers service. The flight was 1 hour and 45 min late and I had another flight to get in Istanbul to get to my final destination. I almost did not make it. The staff never gave us an explanation about what happened at the JFK I flew for 10 hours scared and stressed out. I asked the staff if it was possible at the time of landing to get out with the business class or somehow to get out before everybody else, but they were completely useless. Also in the middle of the flight a woman started feeling very bad. She had an intense migraine because of the high pressure, clearly the woman was not used to fly very often. The poor woman was ill and the entire crew was surrounding her. 7 ppl standing in the way of customers, a male attendant touched my shoulder with his private parts at least 5 times. Also every time they passed by the would hurt my shoulder or my arm with out even apologize. What kind of customer service is this? Forgetting about all the other passengers? Creating a situation of panick just because of how unprofessional they are? You can be the most comfortable or cheapest airline company and add all the luggage and food you want but if your crew doesn't know anything in customer service the customer will fly with a different company next time!"
Pros: "Amenities. Flexible food options if requested ahead online. Bilingual staff."
Cons: "Less legroom than others. Small drink proportions."
Cons: "Everything was truly great except for some passengers who felt they could stand in the aisles (and anywhere else they wanted) and lean over people while they were eating as their meals with religious dietary restrictions had already been served. I feel the flight crew could have handled them a little better. Still thought the rest of the service was fantastic."
Pros: "Price, Price, Price"
Cons: "Keep going KAyak"
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Cons: "seat 53 B is not a seat for human beings on a plane. this is the last seat on the plane. next to food area and bathroom. seat back does not go all the way back. it is not built for 10 hours flight."
Cons: "I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed. I have never in my life received such a poor service. I was lied/misled/attacked by Turkish airline employees in the gate and in the transfer desk. I would never recommend taking Turkish airlines to anyone"
Pros: "Everything on the flight with the smooth running of the flight by the plight"
Cons: "The connecting flight from New York to Istanbul and Istanbul to Lagos Nigeria is bad time difference"
Pros: "Entertainment was great and so was the food. Boarding process was quick"

Pros: "Good food and service"
Cons: "Boarding very disorganized. Messy."
Pros: "all in all !!!!"
Cons: "My incoming Turkish Airlines flight arrived late due to weather conditions in Istanbul. The handling of passengers who had missed connecting flights was poor.

I would avoid flying with Turkish Airlines if I could."
Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"
Cons: "I've flown Turkish Airlines for years, and in the recent months I've noticed the thing I really loved about them- their service, food and beverages, have gone down. The quality and availability isn't what it was 3 or 4 years ago."
Pros: "Definitely would recommend Turkish airline Great experience overall"
Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""

Pros: "Everyone was so sweet and they gave out eye masks which where super helpful. I was more comfortable on this flight then any other."

Pros: "There's nothing to like when the Federal Aviation administration bans direct flights from US to Istanbul, Turkey"

Pros: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "Was horrible, I felt like I was sitting in a back seat of two door car with no space for 9 hours and no way out, I refuse to fly Turkish ever again pay the extra $500 to fly with Emirates it Qutar well worth it than this place, food was discusting they shouldn't be a air line PIA is better"
Cons: "I miss my flight from Istanbul to sofia due a technical issues leaving JFK International Airport from NY and no one was waiting for us to make sure we can get to our connect fligt on time. Thank you Turkish Airlines for letting me stay 11 hours on your stupid airport and missing one day of may vacation. I will never ever again flight with you!"
Pros: "Top notch"
Cons: "The seats were close together and I felt crowded"
Pros: "Great movie selection. Some of the staff ( only some ) are really nice."

Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Tthe seats and surrounding space was small. The food was bad."
Pros: "The food is really good, they still are trying to do airline travel like it used to be - with great service and proper meals, menus and snacks. Lovely staff too."
Cons: "Inadequate space for rollie luggage - most compartments don't accomodate - and the flight attendants became frazzled as time went on - sometimes they were rude when you asked for water or a soda - I think because they would be coming by with a drinks cart in a second, but we don't always know that."
Cons: "Two women fight over space the entire flight and the flight crew were indifferent about it."
Cons: "My luggage was lost in istanbul where I was making a connection Galina Zoueva"

Cons: "Only negative experience was that I had a connecting flight with a small window (1 hour) in Istanbul and my bag didn't make the same flight as me so I was without it for a half day.

Pros: "Seat was private, comfortable, accommodating. Service was really great, food was delicious. totally nice flight."

Cons: "seat spacing too crowded"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "I wish there was a wife"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight"

Since unloading took way longer than needed or it should have plus the combination of the plane arriving late I had no time to make it to my next flight gate. By the time my next flight was open to boarding I was still unloading on my previous flight. That wasn't my fault, I did not book the connecting flight. I had to run to my next gate and I barely made it before it closed. Not pleasant at all."

Pros: "I like the crew. All men and women were polite and looked pretty good."

Aeroflot representative told me that they are in process to find my luggage. Unfortunately, they haven't found my case. I will send complain letter to Aeroflot. The airline refused to provide compensation for this loss. Is it anyway to get compensation for my lost luggage? Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Best, Svetlana Zemlinskaya firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "Everything besides the seats. The crew is friendly and courteous, the entertainment systems are modern and even let you charge your phone via USB, and the plane was clean and looked new."
Cons: "The seats have hard, flat seat cushions that make your behind feel sore after an hour. The seat back is sculpted for a 5' tall passenger and cut into my back around the shoulder blades. I was unable to make myself comfortable, let alone fall asleep, despite being very tired and sleepy."
Pros: "This is our third round trip on Aeroflot in 2 years. The price was amazing AND the entire experience was what you would expect from a major airline. We were lucky to have no delays. The inflight service was what we expected, the food was more than edible and the ground and flight staff were professional. We make 2-3 international trips per year and are experienced mature travelers."
Pros: "The flight was relatively cheaper than others"
Cons: "The aircraft was less comfortable than other flights I've been taking in the last few years,but I was ready to accept it given the cheapest cost. The food though made me real sick,I still have stomach ache after 24 hours. The headphones provided to watch movies were of such low quality that it was barely possible to hear what the actors would say, and given that it was a two-input system, it was not possible to use your own headphones."
Pros: "I liked the service, the food was delicious even in economy class."
Pros: "Left on time Not too crowded Seats decent"
Pros: "My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our 9 hour flight. I was pleasantly surprised at how often they served us food, drinks, and snacks throughout the flight ! Movie selection was impressive and we both watched 3-4 movies. It was great that we could pause movies at our leisure as well!"
Cons: "They can't even tell me where the bag is supposed to be."
Pros: "Crew attitude, food, bluberry juice, punctuality"
Cons: "Babies under 1yr need bassinet by regulation, pls implement. Tough to hold kid for 8 hrs, even with baby bjorn - can injure baby's neck!"
Pros: "was on time. Small airport, convenient transit without passport control,"
Cons: "Small flight, longer flying time. Almost no service."
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "Low level service, quarrel at the check in about size of the hand luggage (fits all standards, excepts self imposed Finnair rule <8 kg). Poor to no service."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Only drinks with dinner, other airlines serve the whole time. Limited selection of drinks. Other airlines do not limit. Not enough leg room and I'm only 5'7. Seat in front leaned back to far."
Pros: "Arriving safe."
Cons: "We sat in the plane for 7.5 hours before moving. Airline provided no extra food though served what was meant to be breakfast before landing in the evening. Then they had not even coffee before actually landing. The vegetarian breakfast that was served in the evening had one dry pita bread with two slices of cucumbers and tomatoes, very lousy. Finnair has had that for years. If you order lacto-ovo meal, you get a vegan breakfast, a very low quality one. Why? I paid about $1500 for the flight and would like some service, too."
Cons: "Plane too old for such a long flight"
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Cons: "I have to use code-shared flight because of the schedule. Otherwise, always try to have pure Finnair flights. Get a better schedule!!!"

Cons: "Seating is cramped in economy"
Cons: "30 min between flying"
Pros: "Not much to enjoy"
Cons: "The service. 3 hour late flight, had to rebook my connection out of my own pocket. After we got on the plane, we find out the issues were not fixed and had to wait another hour. Terrible food. Yogurt was actually expired, so I had no breakfast. People were all nice as they told me I should have booked the flights together. Hmmm... Maybe you should not have been 4 hours late. I planned my trip with more than enough time to make connection... Called about my travel insurance and found out it kicked in after 6 hour delay. Customer service should never make you feel like the issue is your fault."
Pros: "That I made it safely to my destination. Updates from the cockpit were appreciated. Plane was nearly empty, so I was able to stretch out over severa seats."
Cons: "I haven't heard good things about American Airlines, and now I know why. Probably the oldest plane in the fleet. Entertainment was 2-3 fold down screens from the ceiling. I can't remember the last time I flew on a transatlantic fight with no entertainment- nearly 20 years ago I'm sure. Airplane food is never great, but food options were worse than normal. American Airlines customer service at JFK was horrendous, resulting in several passengers missing their flight. (I was there if 4 hours to spare, but had to wait 1hr+ to have my birthdate changed in the system.)"
Cons: "After waiting around in the airport for almost 10 hours we were finally told the flight was cancelled and my direct flight turned into a taxi transfer and 3 flights with a day lost on my vacation. I was not offered any compensation however I heard some passengers were given $7 food vouchers to be spent only in a small convenience store that was the only store open."
Cons: "American Airlines charged me 100.00 dollars for 1 extra luggage, ridiculous! !!!! Also we took off 1 hour late without any notice..... Flight to Europe with AA sucks..."
Pros: "Usually a 7 hours flight is a torture for me, but with their outstanding service I didn't notice how time flew by.The flight attendants were providing us with all necessary information about next connections."
Cons: "It was delayed uncomfortable and terrible service"
Pros: "The meal for dinner was nice with wine, good old fashioned meal service. The plane was clean. Blankets and pillows provided. Staff seemed efficient. The flight was operated by Iberian so it was all in Spanish. Okay for us as we speak Spanish."
Cons: "The seats had so little padding. We are not very tall and the seats are just too close together. The poor fellow behind me could not make a move without bashing the back of my seat. Not his fault. If you are over 5'5" tall you are in trouble. It is too bad that flying has become so uncomfortable in coach."
Pros: "Everything was good ,plane was on time,food was good for Airline food and was clean."
Cons: "The crew was pleasant but they needed to smile more . Other than that everything was good."
Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"
Cons: "Need wifi to work. Highly dissapointed that BRITISH air doesn't have this feature. Most airlines do!!"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, easy flight with just a few periods of chop - captain kept us well aware of what was happening at all times."
Cons: "Poor entertainment (no individual units on seats), and the 767-300 has almost no leg room in economy."
Pros: "Head phone jack was not working in my seat."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Was not Finnair but American Airlines operated flight, so cramped, no personal entertainment system, sub charger, etc. Would have been great if this was 1996 and not 2016."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, flight crew was not very friendly, plane was extremely old and uncomfortable. In flight entertainment was not working for me and many other passengers. Food was very bland and took long to be served. Service and flight in general fell very very short of what I expected."

Cons: "very old plane, food choices limited, entertainment system not working"
Pros: "Got a very nice vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."
Cons: "Old plane, noscreen on seats,, can't choose movie, no charger and USB. Terrible food Very expensive for the price"
Cons: "Finnai leased this plane from EuroAtlantic. The seats were uncomfortable, entertainment system didn't work, crew was careless... It was a light from horrow! Plane was at least 20 years old!"
Pros: "Aircraft was so old.Paying $1,000 for that, when any other airline uses decent aircrafts, is just unacceptable."
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Pros: "Great flight. Check in had to be done manually but the agents were plentiful and it was quick and easy. Great movie selection on the flight and the chicken and rice tasted great as well. Would recommend this airline."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "other than that, the flight was fine. did not sample the food"
Pros: "the crew was good and helpful. They should be paid more."
Cons: "ALL my print outs say FINNAIR, your asking about my FINNAIR flight, all says FINNAIR, so I go to the airport and wait 30 precious minutes at the FINNAIR counter to check in ( there was no self check in computers) only to be told Ah, you are not on FINNAIR, you are on American and must go to the American counter. I was given my itinerary back and rushed to American and began to self check in only to realize in the rush the woman had not given me back my passport. So, I rushed back to get it, loosing more time, only to find she had given it to another agent at another American counter but not at the check in area, and it took more time to find out who had my passport. I made my flight, but if ALL says FINNAIR, how am I supposed to know that I should instead be looking at fine print to discover which airline I am actually flying on and waste time!!!!!!! It should state CLEARLY that I need to check in at the American counter. In flight entertainment was really poor in comparison to other airlines on international flights."
Pros: "I reach my destination."
Cons: "Boarding was 20 minutes late. Food ... poor quality, no coffee Really a poor plane."

Pros: "I had tsa which started the trip in a wonderful way! On time. Captain seemed nice and competent. The crew nice too."

Cons: "Small seats and no in-seat entertainment."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment on flight"

Cons: "My flight was delayed but I was able to catch my connection flight. (After running through the Madrid airport). Then when I arrived in Berlin I come to find out my bags were still in Madrid."
Pros: "The fare was the best I found and it got me home on short notice. Service and facilities were the same as other major airlines as the flight was operated by a code share partner. Online booking was smooth and painless."

Pros: "The flight was not full. Dinner was delicious."
Cons: "1 hour delay for repairs before take off no overhead light when I wanted to read"
Cons: "Sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Apparently something was wrong with the plane. And then we waited for a mani tenancy log to get signed. Typical American Airlines garbage."

Cons: "Seats too narrow"
Pros: "Crew very good nice fligth too"
Cons: "Transfer time in Lisbon"
Cons: "The crew did not know the law about child safety seats. They tried to inform us we could not use it, even though it is approved for air travel. Then they tried to tell us we had to face it forward, which is illegal and it cannot be secured like this. Then they told us the car seat needed to be against the fuselage, but that all the fuselage seats were taken. They did not offer a solution to this problem. I informed them this was TAP's fault for assigning those seats to us. They said they were not responsible, which is clearly wrong. They could have reassigned us at check-in and avoided the problem. They were very concerned about the ability of the person in front of us to recline their seat, but no interested at all in the safety of our baby. They told us we would not be able to use the seat, although our baby was already asleep. They were trying to find a way to make us leave the plane. Finally, some other passengers volunteered to move so we could sit against the fuselage with nobody in the seats in front of us, so we would not block them from reclining. A solution would not have been found by the crew. Only thanks to generous passengers were we able to stay on the plane, even though we were doing everything completely legally. They made my pregnant wife feel so bad that she cried for the first hour of the flight. Then, as the flight was concluding, our baby got airsick and vomited. They crew did nothing to help aside from bring 3 (!) napkins and then leave again. Incredibly unhelpful, mean, ignorant, and combative cabin crew. Truly appalling."
Cons: "We booked business class. JFK to LIS very nice. Seats were very comfortable and reclined flat. More leg room than in other business class seats. What they called business from LIS to Rome was just regular uncomfortable across economy seats with no one in the middle seat."
Pros: "2 free checked bags"
Cons: "Very long wait time."
Pros: "Everything !!!! No delayed seat was great food great multi média great"
Cons: "They don’t even give glass of water in business class. Terrible attention."
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I have taken in a very very long time. The ride was smooth but the seat was so terribly uncomfortable. I was in pain on arrival."
Pros: "New plane, clean, entertainment system was state of the art."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very nice. Seemed to not want to be there. Service was nearly not existent."
Cons: "Flight delayed but otherwise it was good! Maybe entertainment such as tv monitors or inflight entertainment upgrade."
Pros: "The crew was kind and the flight ok. They wanted to charge me 120.00 USD for my one bag checked ONE WAY. 240.00 USD round trip for one checked bag!!!!! On their website it clearly states one free checked bag for ALL FLIGHTS xcept “discount” fares. No way to prove I purchased “basic”"
Cons: "They lied. The website does not clearly state that you will be CHARGED FOR CHECKED BAGS. Warning!!"
Pros: "Plane was clean & crew were kind"
Pros: "The overall experience was great"
Cons: "It was indeed a good experience"
Pros: "The staff, the linens, the fruit"
Cons: "Bigger bathroom, more padded seat with adjustable bolster"
Pros: "Everything was very good."
Cons: "Paid thousands of dollars for this trip and my luggage is missing as tap Portugal convinently lost it."
Pros: "Much better than I expected, will fly again with pleasure."
Pros: "The business class seating was very comfortable and the flight attendants were super friendly and helpful. A good list of movies."
Cons: "Shame that the lounge at the JFK airport was closed."
Pros: "The staff were somewhat helpful, and fairly friendly"
Cons: "The seats for a 5-hour flight couldn’t recline. The plane was freezing, there was no entertainment on the flight, and the seating wasn’t evenly distributed. There were many economy rows with only one person, then rows right next to that full with three people. The food wasn’t good either."
Pros: "The fact that it was a direct flight."
Cons: "First of all, I would like to start by saying that I flight with TAP very often. I guess you can check on your system. I had good experiences in the past and actually recommeded to friends/family. I hope this flight was an exception. A few things were not that good this time. 1) First of all, the online check-in wasn't working until a few hours before the flight, and I didn't even give me the option to choose my seat. Once in the plane, I noticed plenty of empty seats in several areas of the plane. I could have had a much better seat. Also, the fact that the price of the luggage in the ticket is not included is insane! They let you know right at the boarding area. Another 100 plus dollars in addition to the 1,6000 that I paid for the ticket. Incredible!! And they only gave us 15 dollars voucher!! 2) There was a 2 hours delay due to a storm in the south of the USA. Although I am fully understandable with the fact that this situation is out of hands for the TAP company, is it in their hands the care and wellbeing of their passengers. As previoulsy stated, I received a 15 dollars voucher to use becasue of the delay. At any airport, for any decent meal, you will pay a minimum of 25-30 dollars. All items are more expensive. While waiting in the gate to board, we were not offered with snacks, water, etc.. additionally, no announements or updates at all. 3) I had a very uncofortable situation with one of the filght attenders. Male, very tall, dark hair and dark skin. When distributing dinner, I found the way he approached me very disrespectul, ironic and dismissive. ZERO customer services and he is actually the face of TAP in these planes. Unaceptable. I have to look all the way up to him, he wouldn't make an effort to band a bit (of course, not completely) to at least try to hear what I was saying. He was requesting me to speak loud but he would not make a minimum effort to get close to me. His demeanor and attitude made me feel very upsted... abuse of power... to the pooint that I ended up not taking the meal. No manners at all. He should understand that after hours of waiting (check-in usual time plus the 2 hours delay) we were all very tired. Particularly at that timeof the day. Some of us where up for since earlyi in the moring and you could tell that most of the passengers were exhausted. The second we got into our seat, we all used our blankets and try to sleep. He was not empathetic or councious about that. I felt very uncomfortable. Both of the girls that were also in the back area of the plane, were also lacking manners and customer services. I don't know.. other times was much better."
Cons: "I paid to select my seats which were 2 window and two aisle seats. I was assigned 2 aisle and 2 middle seats. I paid extra to acoid middle seats and I would like a refund."
Pros: "First off I'd never heard of this airline but that was ok because we (group travel) were originally booked on another aiine I'd never heard if before either called Nirwegian. Well less than 24 hrs before we were scheduled to fly out, the exact same day, they cancel our flight! After a lot of phone calls and wait times we were booked onto TAP AIR PORTUGAL. Easy check in, my carry on was great, entertainment was on point, food was good (first European trip), crew was nice, plane was huge; just a good experience overall. I will definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Bags didn’t arrive"
Cons: "CRew was rude. Food was poor.checked baggage fees exhorbitant"
Cons: "TAP seems to have trouble landing at its own global hub. Three hours wasted in Porto before the traffic over LIS had cleared up. First time TAP, last time TAP."
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Crew was helpful. Flights were on time and overall experience was very good."
Pros: "The food and entertainment was good. We got into the plane ver quickly and we were seated towards the front"
Cons: "I have been flying for a while but it is so difficult to find out what fare class you have. the website is not helpful with bag check in information. $90 is way too much to check in a bag especially for an international flight the line at Lisbon for passports is way too long"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, we boarded on time and landed a bit early which was nice. We recieved little snack packs that had a sandwich and a granola bar or fruit snacks and a juice."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable to sleep on for 6 hours as they didn't recline back too much but that is to be expected in 2nd class seats."
Cons: "Kayak needs to inform us passengers that the price doesn’t include checked in luggage. It’s a very unpleasant surprise to find out that one has to pay 180$ on top only to have luggage. That’s unacceptable"
Pros: "Cancelled our flight, at 4am. Did not give a reasonX"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 5 hours"
Cons: "I booked these tickets for my friends Jamal Wiggins and Anthony Maxwell and they are still Lisbon. They are still in Lisbon! Their flight, 1306, had been delayed for almost 6 hours. The gate keeps changing and they've been getting ther run around all day. No food vouchers. This is horrendous. I am here at Prague airport. We only have a few days here and now one day is gone. They should be reimbursed! We are paying 400 euros for hotel rooms that aren't even being used because of this delay."
Cons: "Tha total absence of hard alcoholic beverages, no moderate cocktails"
Cons: "Need to pay extra for everything...bags, seats.Very bad practice for entire industry. Should pay $50 extra per flight and mandate that all bags, except hand luggage be checked in."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Plane and comfort"
Cons: "Food and entertainment needs to be better. The transfer over to cologne from Portugal was a bit hectic due to customs and we just made it in time for our flight. Need a better system to verify the passports."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats and food"
Cons: "Their 11 hours flight converted to 2 days flight with long waiting time between the flights. They also lost my baggage and there was no organization process in the airport as well as they couldn't resolve any problems related to their flight."
Pros: "Hot food"
Cons: "TAP says they're partners with Jet Blue until something goes awry. didn't work as a team to troubleshoot on how to get me to Rome on time or even on the same day. missed a day of my trip. didn't compensate, didn't troubleshoot until too late. didn't work to make it right as a team. wouldn't recmmend"
Cons: "Need bigger pillows!"
Cons: "Limited leg room."
Cons: "childs crying, no sleep, but what can we do right?"
Pros: "I gave up fighting with you and TAP to recover this error that was made a moment after I booked thinking it was to Brussels. I will think twice before ever giving Kayak or tap my business and blog you both to Facebook."
Cons: "The fact that it is impossible to speak to a human to correct this mistake"
Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."
Pros: "Servis was perfect, food was even better than with British airlines. I very like that Portugal crew were much more nice and hospitable than English crew."
Cons: "any unlikes."
Pros: "Very convenient"
Cons: "There is no food"
Pros: "Late night dinner provided and morning snack"
Cons: "The seats are really hard to sit on (no soft at all) and seem to be made for very short people, so not enough leg support. I was glad it wasn't a 9 hour flight."
Cons: "NO Options for vegetarians. main curse and snacks were with meat."
