Very warm and friendly greeting and attentiveness during flight. Lack of strict protocol regarding departure. Didn't keep coach from overrunning business class on departure.

Pros: "Clear communication about delays and boarding, comfortable seats, great service."
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: "Price. Service and food offered in the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process: everyone crowds into the line without regard of the grouping."
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: "Not missing our connecting flight because if flight / airport delays."
Pros: "on time, food was good"
Cons: "seats are hard, painful for 7 hours..... crew was very noisy, very rough they kept hitting my arm. male crew hit the back of my seat to wake me up, he took away my food due to me sleeping."
Pros: "Movies and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food was not good Too much meat"
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."
Cons: "Food was terrible especially breakfast"
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: "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: "direct flight to Porto on this airline."
Cons: "too small seating and leg room. meal options could be better."
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."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "The customer service I received was horrible horrible horrible especially from the check in counter the were very rude . After booking my flight on kayak I called TAP customer service just to make sure that everything was fine .I asked them about luggage they said I had 2 free and a carry on when I got to the airport said I had to pay for the 2 i said no told them that i called TAP they didn't wanna hear it i asked for the manager she I am the manager and you bought a discounted ticket and there's no luggage with this ticket only acarry on in a mean way if you want the you have to pay $90 for each I tried to call TAP can't get through them when they finally got through them the guy confirmed that I ve called it on the records but it said now it's too late to do anything I am already at the airport that I have to pay and contact them later. I wasted good hour and a half on this and I had to pay $180. After all that at the boarding gate they announced that they will call by zone .they called especial need called frequent flyers zone A never called zone B all they said last minute was this is the final call for flight #.... and I was right in front of them and guess who were the people making the announcement yep the same people at the check in counter"
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"
Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight and I love the dinner they served! Would fly TAP again."
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: "There were no power outlets"
Pros: "Entertainment sucks! Monitors are small and poor quality view. Fixed settings for movie options. Shut it off and went to sleep. Seats were too tight and no knee space. Food was ok."
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: "Efficient friendly generous service To a little used, user friendly airport (Free alcohol, i.e., wines; no spirits) I ordered a Muslim meal: delicious"
Cons: "We had trouble with the A/C leaving; until we were airborne, it was hot. I suspect that this is an unusual problem. In general, I find small international carriers better than the large ones; my favorite so far in Air Austria"
Pros: "Food was interesting and pretty good. Seats were okay. We were happy we choose tap"
Cons: "We never saw a crew member smile. They verged on being surley. From the time we boarded they were yawning. I do mean all of them were acting uninterested in doing their jobs."
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: "On time, no mishaps."
Cons: "Entertainment system was very old and only partially working."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Boarding went smoothly, the food , beverage , and the entertainment was good."
Pros: "The new Business Class is phenomenal! Best seats I've experienced in a Business Class thus far. Too bad the transatlantic flight from New York to Lisbon is too short to enjoy it longer."
Cons: "There is nothing that I did not like, other than that the flight duration was too short. ;-)"
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: "The seats were comfortable, but could use a bit more padding for a long flight. The food was decent, and there was a good assortment of movies, music and TV shows."
Cons: "The crew seemed unhappy to be there."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food, complimentary wine!"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional"
Cons: "The plan was delayed 2 hours, seats were beyond small."
Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom because I'm 6'4". Was given a different seat and still charged."
Pros: "Wow!!!! I had never heard of this airline before booking our trip but goodness this was a blessing. They were so polite in the flight. They always came past to check to see if a passenger needed anything. Free bags is amazing then free pillows blankets and headphones I really hope I get to fly with them on my next flight abroad"
Cons: "Nada"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working and will restart itself during 10 minutes EVERY 10 minutes. Very inconvenient. The flight attendants were impolite too."
Cons: "Forced us to pay extra for seat assignments then allowed other passengers to take them. Entertainment did not work despite being reset many times. No additional beverage service outside of meals"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "I can not get my luggage for more than 6 months"
Cons: "The ticket price is expensive"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Bathrooms were dirty upon boarding, crew did not even come around with water more than once, the airline couldn’t resolve even the most simple issues. Terrible experience"
Cons: "Any form of customer service, maintenance of bathrooms, ability to resolve travel agent dispute. Change of seats. They were able to do nothing except sorry."
Pros: "Crew was great love the extras like headphones, pillows, blankets and socks. I think the socks saved me on our long flight. Loved that you served tea and coffee after meals."
Cons: "Food was not very good. Bathrooms were NASTY! The crew needed to server drinks more often and need more of a variety of juice add apple cranberry just a suggestion. The flight delay was horrible. You add 2 hours of delay to a 8 hour trip that stinks."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Loved the food, the people, the games, the accommodations. A lot."
Cons: "No WiFi."
Cons: "Service was poor and the flight got delayed"
Pros: "Service by crew/ excellent"
Cons: "Boarding process delayed and chaotic."
Pros: "I loved the crew"
Cons: "the food could be better."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that im a paying customer and when i pressed the flight attendant call button to get the attention of a cabin crew, waited for about 15 minutes and nobody showed up, bear in mind that it wasnt the busiest time of flight. I had to wake up the customer sitting next to me so i can walk to the back galley where i found 4 cabin crew members sitting down and chit chatting about their personal lives completely ignoring the chime/sound and light above my seat when i pressed the F/A call button. When i asked for water, one of the cabin crew members pointed towards a bottle of bottle and told me to serve myself as if im a non-paying customer. I paid for my ticket, why should i do their job. In a nutshell, the customer service sucks, for least money i could have taken another airline with better service."
Pros: "The flight out of JFK to Casablanca was on time and checking in was extremely fast. We flew out and arrived early. The plane itself was very clean and organized, and was mostly empty, giving me enough space to have two seats for myself."
Cons: "The entertainment center (screen) stopped an hour before the plane landed. I was in the middle of watching The Greatest Showman, so that was pretty rude. Other than that it was great."
Pros: "Friendly staff, nice cabin, good movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding was horrendous. The flight was so delayed but no one updated us on the status. It caused many people (including me) to miss connecting flights at Casablanca. Terrible communication. And they aren’t helpful at all even when they completely screw up your travel plans."
Pros: "Nothing?"
Cons: "This was my first and last time flying with Royal Air Maroc. The plane was cramped and filthy with the most uncomfortable seats I've ever encountered on a plane. The plane was kept at a very warm temperature, so I was sweaty for most of the flight (I'm usually very cold; it's rare that I find a space too warm). The crew gave me a hard time when I requested the vegetarian meal, claiming that they didn't have one (except they did, which they produced minutes later). I've never been on an international flight that didn't have a vegetarian option. THEN, we left JFK late, and I missed my connection to another Air Maroc flight by TWO minutes. They shut the gate and wouldn't reopen it. Multiple people needed to make this connection; any other airline would have held the plane for the entire five minutes necessary. In conclusion: terrible service and filthy, uncomfortable planes."
Pros: "Flight crew was helpful."
Cons: "Food not great. Bathrooms a mess."
Pros: "The flight was excellent."
Cons: "The transit procedure is poor. There is a need to review this process."
Pros: "Very nice flight and great service"
Pros: "The seat back entertainment was decent; good recent releases."
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2-3 hours, for no apparent reason other than the flight crew showing up late. People were asked to queue up and then, after an hour, told that we wouldn't be boarding soon, with no estimated boarding time. On the flight I was next to a talk man who had paid extra for a bulkhead seat, but once his ticket was issued he was in a regular seat. The flight crew absolutely did not care. A number of people missed connecting flights due to the long delay. English announcements were incomprehensible."
Cons: "WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!! FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED and they didn't tell us in advance and COMPLETELYYYYYYYY ruined our entire trip that we had to cancel and LOST ALL OUR MONEY!!!!! WILL NEVER FLY ROYAL AIR MAROC. They didn't have any recourse over what they did"
Pros: "Trip was fine, helpful crew on airplane, and comfortable but very delayed boarding."
Cons: "Boarding didn't begin until the time that the flight was scheduled for take-off."
Pros: "My bags where opened and my items where stolen from my luggages"
Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "Breakfast lacked nutritional value as it was carbs only, i.e. an assortment of 3 different types of bread/cake. My friend and I unboarded the flight extremely hungry and had to find breakfast on the street in a new country while waiting for a train from casablanca to marrakesh. Also, my friend's brandnew suitcase was damaged when we received it at the casablanca airport as it was missing a wheel."
Pros: "New airplane. Great service. Great Food. Ontime."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "SEATS"
Pros: "How clean the airline was"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very disappointed"
Pros: "clean, safe ride, friendly staff, flight departed and left on time."
Pros: "I can't remember because I was so traumatized by the outrageously terrible service."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight staff toward the passengers could be best described as somewhere between prison warden transporting felons and grade school teacher who hates children leading a field trip. To begin with, our flight closed down boarding over an hour before the take off time. When I asked why the flight boarded so early, a flight attendant snapped at me that it was not early. Okay then. Our flight was two hours delayed (so we sat there for three hours) and during that time I asked for a glass of water and was yelled at to sit back down. I attempted to use the bathroom and was yelled at to sit back down. Other passengers became desperately thirsty and antsy, and they were also yelled at by the staff. I was anticipating another full day of traveling after my flight so I attempted to sleep as soon as the lights went off. I was woken up at midnight because the woman, who I assume had never flown on an airplane before, sitting behind me wanted me to lift my seat up while she ate her dinner. Everyone else on the flight was eating with the seat in front of them reclined, but of course I was woken up, yelled at by the staff, and had my seat forcibly returned to the upright position. When breakfast came around, I was deep in sleep, and the flight attendant snapped my seat up (waking me up) without even asking. I was the only person on the flight who had their seat snapped to the upright position for breakfast this way. They also demanded the pillows and blankets be returned over an hour before landing time. It was service so outrageously bad that the entire experience felt surreal, and I had to keep checking with my friend that the events I was experiencing were actually happening."
Pros: "Staff was friendly but poorly organized"
Cons: "Two identical meals that were laughable even by airline standards."
Pros: "Every things"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, 1hr without notification nor apologies from waitresses and responsibles. Bad food and no enough for more options. When food givers arrived they ask : chicken or fish. When you tell them fish they say sorry I only have chicken left. Overall nothing was good. Can I give half star to Royal Air Maroc?"
Pros: "I arrived o time to my destination"
Cons: "The tv didn't work."
Pros: "No delays, flight was on schedule."
Cons: "Pretty much everything was okay"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Enough space to stretch my legs."
Cons: "The food is awful"
Pros: "New and comfortable 787 plane; loading was very efficient"
Cons: "Limited selection of entertainment"
Cons: "luggage did not come through from my connecting flight. very disappointed."
Pros: "The comfort of plane, food was good. Left on time."
Cons: "I was going onward to Bangui and you left my luggage in Casablanca on purpose. 4 days later still no luggage. This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Boarding. Separate line for Business Class needed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every thing. This is my first and last time traveling with this company. I think I made a very big mistake by choosing this airline"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The lady who checked us in was nice. The flight made it to Morocco without crashing. That's all I can say positive right now."
Cons: "We left late. 45 minutes late without an explanation. Then the chairs are quite uncomfortable. The crew wasn't very pleasant, except maybe one guy. There are tons of announcements in 3 languages. Then we arrived late. And as if it's 1970 we get off the plane onto the tarmac, wait for a bus that takes 15 minutes to get you to the building, which I could have walked to in the same amount of time. Then you have to go through security again for some reason. So we missed our flight. Stuck in a shitty terminal without so much as an apology or a food voucher for our 6 hour wait till the next flight. Not a good experience."
Pros: "I was prepared for the worst after reading so many bad reviews but everything went smoothly. They got us seats together even though the flight was full, we got our bags on the plane so we wouldn't have to go through baggage claim, they provided a blanket and pillow and eye cover and the entertainment console worked well. Plane appeared to be pretty new. Yes the food was bad but no worse than pretty much every other economy flight I have been on."
Pros: "Sleeping mask, head phones etc provided at beginning of flight."
Cons: "I'm short and had my knees bruised by the end of the 6 hour flight. Wheelchair service at JFK was rudest I've ever met. Wheel chair service at CMN did not show up. Luckily this time I was not traveling completely alone and coworkers were able to assist. Crew would not let me sleep on the plane, kept waking me to eat. I was not permitted to bring all my luggage and no alternatives were offered. My carry on was taken from me because the wheel chair person did not want to deal with me and it. I wish there was an option, but I will have to fly air Marco again."
Pros: "the stewards, the service, the time accurrency"
Cons: "The long LAYOUT in Morrocco"
Pros: "Service and the airplain inside."
Cons: "Mohammed V airport. Needs lots of updates. I wish they build a new one."
Pros: "The plane was almost brand new, service was excellent.. No delays or problems of any sort. Check in was quick, Flight on-time Smooth the whole way Super friendly staff It was great, Thank you,"
Cons: "No respect"
Pros: "Nothing i liked about that airlines"
Cons: "Assumingand expecting everyone speak french"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cushen worn out flat"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could"
Cons: "We flew near hurricane Lorenzo and the flight was the bumpiest I’ve ever had"
Pros: "Flight left Boston on time and arrived in Ponta Delgada 15 minutes early. Very clean and well maintained Airbus 321"
Cons: "Less delays"
Pros: "The leg room was awesome, for a 6 foot tall person! I really liked the meal and the wine served was actually quite good, with generous servings! Crew was so friendly and accommadating, really nice people! I was very comfy, even with the trubulance"
Cons: "Honestly, I am sure everyone is going to comment on the brakes at landing, but it makes an amusing story."
Pros: "The crew was running into people with their carts-i saw it 3 times."
Cons: "The food was bad. The area before boarding was small, and once inside, there was no access to food or restroom. We walked far to board. From the"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Appreciate the meal and service good flight"
Cons: "Made us ship our carry on bags which we didn’t appreciate ! Even boarding early ! Did not being packed in busses then made to wait both at terminal and plane for long periods !"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was delayed 4 hours"
Cons: "The crew never announced that the flight was delayed by one hour. Boarding was disorganized even with the plane being half full. The crew is Ok and not taking control of situation."
Pros: "Tight seats, but freee wine makes up for it!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Or difficult to access."
Cons: "Seats were chosen weeks ago and we recieved a text the night before flight that our seats were changed . They put our 2 year old by himself in tow 38 and the rest of us in tow 5&8 and told us we had to figure it out and ask passengers to switch . Hey made no effort to accommodate"
Cons: "They had us board from the front and the back of the plane, and a gridlock ensued in the middle with people trying to cross paths to get to their seat. When we landed, we sat on the runway for 20 minutes or so waiting for a gate. Customs/immigration in Boston was HORRIBLE, we waited in lines for over 90 minutes."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hrs late then when boarding they loaded all of us in a bus. We’re packed in and then stood on he bus for over a half hr waiting for the cleaning crew to finish. Why we didn’t just stay at our gate till it was ready? Idk but everyone seem to not know what they were doing and very unorganized"
Pros: "The wine was very good"
Cons: "Business class isn’t super posh but still good"
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant. Seats are reasonably comfortable, with decent legroom."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. They called us all, and then we had to wait about 15 minutes, with everyone standing. They don't call by row number, so it's a free for all. Food was so-so. Dinner was fish, which was dry and had no sauce. The cake was also dry, unlike the delicious brownie we had on the flight to the Azores. (But that flight was delayed 6 hours!) I don't want to watch entertainment on my tiny phone. I wish they had seatback screens as other Trans-Atlantic flights do."
Pros: "new plane with very few passengers"
Cons: "The flight from Boston to Ponta Delgada was cancelled twice-- More than 30 hour delay"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No organization."
Pros: "The staff were nice, I was sitting in a bulkhead seat so that was nice to have extra room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment (broken) and the meal was not the greatest."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "5 hrs delay and missed all connecting flights. Airline initially rescheduled flight 2 days later. Called Kayak and got no support. Kayak agent told us to keep pushing the airline. After 2 hrs of "working" with the airline, we were able to fly into Madrid the following day. Had to spend extra money for hotel room and car rental in Madrid because our final destination was Sevilla. Will never work with Azores or Kayak again. BTW, did we mention that while "working" with Azores to reschedule flight, we were booked to fly into an island off of Africa. Luckily, we followed up online with the changed itinerary."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They kicked me off a flight 12 hours before departure, after booking months in advance, because they overbooked. No refund."
Cons: "I think the through flight through Portugal should have been more transparent. Myself and many others did not know about this flight until arriving at the airport. Regarding entertainment, there was no movie or anything like this for the long flight."
Pros: "Service and the upgrade"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was easy!"
Cons: "Everything was fine thanks."
Pros: "Honestly, they had the best plane food I've had in a while. Flight very comfortable and uneventful, they even gave us blankets and pillows."
Pros: "SATA was very hospitable when our flight was delayed into the next day. They provided a hotel and dinner/breakfast vouchers."
Cons: "The App proved to be useles when our flight was delayed 14+ hours. We were able to check in the day of the flight, but were never alerted when the flight was delayed. We called customer service and waited on hold for 30+ minutes without connecting, even though the automated message said the wait would be 6 mins. Communication as a whole was quite poor and created a lot of anxiety amongst the visibly upset travelers."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "See above comments"
Cons: "Long delay, no apologies, uncomfortable all around"
Pros: "Free wine with dinner. crew was attentive."
Cons: "had to walk a long way on the tarmac to get to the plane."
Pros: "Free food and beer"
Cons: "3 hour delay and sizee of seats - SMALL pitch!"
Pros: "I liked the food and champagne :)"
Cons: "Didn't appreciate the fact that my flight was canceled and changed for a day later"
Pros: "I got there alive"
Cons: "Trying to be impartial on this review as it was my return trip that was a nightmare. I honestly just slept through the entire flight. It seems pretty obvious that SATA Has a monopoly on US flights to the Azores and they are making no effort to improve service."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours. The movie was horrible. No ones speakers worked. Serive was fine"
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "everithing is good"
Pros: "Spacious"
Cons: "Delayed 4 times without explanation. No option to select vegetarian meal at time of ticket purchase or check in. Boarding is a free for all. No order, just a mass of people funneling in to get through the gate. Then had to get on a shuttle bus to the plane... which took us to the wrong plane. Boarding the plane is also a free for all. The disorganization must have at least doubled the required boarding time."
Pros: "Very very very budget. Old aircraft, poor service, overall negative experience."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped, small and poor. The staff was unresponsive. The lights were on all night (red eye!) and the meal service was unnecessary (12 midnight?!)."
Cons: "The 12 hour delay without being told why. We would be told we would leave at a certain time and then it was cancelled, told a different time and it was cancelled, and told again, etc was suppose to be in Lisbon in the morning, arrived in Lisbon near midnight."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Ponta Delgada ground staff misguided us with less than 30 min to catch connecting flight..."
Pros: "Doss improved from first experience but still mediocre; staff friendly overall"
Cons: "Late departure, affecting connecting flight"
Pros: "Food improved from our first overnight experience"
Cons: "No entertainment, some crew members wee rude and messy (spilling food/drink and unapologetic) where others were exceptional. Limited places to sit in between flights at gate (had to depart plane and reload even though we had same exact plane/seats)"
Pros: "It was a economical flight. The food was pretty good as well."
Cons: "We had changes to pretty much every leg of our flights. One was delayed by 2.5 hours. I understand that flights get delayed but they hardly gave us any information as to what was going on. The flight was pretty smooth but the flight attendants didn't seem interested in our comfort. They weren't rude but they weren't pleasant either. I guess I'm used to a different style of service that I did not receive on Azores."
Pros: "On time flight , friendly service overall all great"
Pros: "We got home alive. It was the first on time flight we had during of 4 flights with Azores air."
Cons: "Seats literally had duct tape on them. Food was atrocious. They only entertainment was the old two prone headphones and 8 looping crackly audio stations. On a calm day landing in in boston we set down one side of the rear landing gear, then the other, and squiggled down the runway. As the pilot didn't touch down early enough on the runway he had to really jam on the brakes. It was greeted with a round of applause because landing alive with azores air seems to be worthy of applause by the regulars... Least legroom of any airline. Bathroom was disgusting after 2 hr. Toilet paper was seemingly wadded up and stuck back into the dispenser. Nobody ever got new paper. Ran out of paper towels as well..."
Pros: "Earlier TAP flight was late and caused me to miss my connecting flights."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled because TAP flight was 2 hours late in picking me up."
Pros: "The food was good. I enjoyed the flight. Though I've felt that I received less than I usually do from international flights but maybe just because this was shorter. No extra bull you don't need like an over night bag (that I've been given on other airlines for over night flights) but if you're expecting it, it may be a bit of a let down. My flight was just under 6 hours so maybe it's too short for that. They served a meal and a half. A full dinner, dessert and appetizer with wine. A muffin with coffee for breakfast. The dinner was surprisingly great. I actually really loved it. The muffin was just a plain blueberry muffin purchased from the store. Just a quick half meal before leaving."
Cons: "Well I had planned to go take a course in Porto which was the whole reason I bought this flight. I missed everything i came here for because of it. They reimbursed people and put people up in hotels, but not me. My trip was ruined essentially due to the cancellation of my first flight but the flight itself, when it did go, was good."
Pros: "The plane wasn't full. Got lucky with a row of empty seats"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment available for a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "The friendly staff and free food and drink."
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Cons: "We were boarded on a plane that was hot like an oven!!! There was no AC, not even a fan. I felt like in sauna!!! We were told that the AC can only be turned on after the engines start. We were waiting on a plane in this incredible heat for about 40min after which we were told to go back on a bus and back to the terminal. After another hour we were put back on the same "oven" plane. By the time the AC started working another 40 passed even though this time the engines were started shorty after boarding."
