Pros: "Good new airline ,good people nice service,everything was perfect thank you turkish airline"
Pros: "love georgia!!"
Cons: "I had to buy a Tukish Visa...spend the night in Istanbul.Screwed up my driver,my Mom had to call and cancel my appointments.I had no clothes,of toiletries....just a nightmare"
Cons: "Boarding problems"
Pros: "Awesome cabin crew."
Cons: "Tight seats and some passengers were so noisy and loud throughout the trip."
Cons: "The flight from Antalya to Istanbul was late so we almost missed our connection flight. This story is repeating with your airline at 29th July our Turkish Airlines flight from Sarajevo was late for 3hours so we were running at Ataturk Airport to catch connection flight to Istanbul even though we booked 4 hours delay in Istanbul. Regards, Edin"
Cons: "The flight left early, without me. Instead of beginning boarding at the time printed on my ticket, like every other airline, boarding was completed and closed fifteen minutes before my ticket said they would start, so even though I was eight minutes early I was actually seven minutes too late. Turkish Airlines service desk took the evidence (my ticket) and then refused to rebook me, forcing me to pay $600 for a new flight and for a visa to Turkey just so I could exit through security to book & pay for it. They will not be getting any more of my business in the future!"
Pros: "The food on board was better than average."
Cons: "The whole operation was shabbily done. Because of a Turkish airlines' flight delay, we wouldn't be able to make our connecting flight to Venice from Istanbul. So the agents booked me and my traveling companions on DIFFERENT flights the next day, long after we had paid to be getting to Venice. It took a long time and a lot of work on my part to get our tickets corrected to all be on the same flight, and the whole thing was very unprofessional. The lower price for Turkish airlines is not worth it when you have to spend an entire day of your vacation sitting in the Turkish Airlines airport hotel because Turkish Airlines can't properly get you to your destination on time."
Cons: "Same as above!"
Pros: "Aircraft good, crew members respectful, food was good."
Cons: "Confusion delayed takeoff by 1 hour or more. Staff at gate had an issue in their system. They let others after me on the flight but said would be missing luggage. I said that is fine. Ten minutes later they said they would not let me board. I spent no less than 4 hours trying to get out of the airport-- waiting for visa and then through customs. Every Turkish airline desk took a long time and I was sent to at least 4 Turkish airlines desks. It is all a mess. So I am one day delayed in my arrival to my destination. This has been so frustrating!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff was excellent - wonderful service except the people who let some dog owners on board without bothering to check that they were in their soft cases and not smelling up the plane and walking in the aisles when food was served."
Cons: "I wish the seats were just a little more accommodating of a normal sized behind! Hard to squish for 10+ hours."
Pros: "Boarding experience was chaotic however that wasn't due to Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "I asked for water but they didn't give it to me. They said they would give it water the same time when they gave tea"
Cons: "I lost my connection flight because of TA, they lost my luggage + they almost lost my passport... (it goes much deeper but I don't wanna dig in it)"
Cons: "Boarding was "like a bar fight. After business clase call, they didn't even call star alliance etc. There was h"
Pros: "Good meals, Free Drinks and more space than I'm used to on domestic carriers. would fly again!"
Pros: "All flight segments were on time, the crew was very pleasant, but the main thing was that I felt that the cabin noise was lower than the other airliners .... ????"

Pros: "Service was prompt but short. Stewards seemed stressed out."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken option. Friend does not eat eggplant (option #2)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the food. And most staff were friendly."
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class for this leg of my total journey. It was incredibly comfortable experience. The recliner seats with the massage feature add immensely to the overall experience."
Pros: "The flight was smooth (good pilots) and the service was great."
Cons: "The space between seats."
Pros: "The company gave us a hotel for the layover."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "When we couldn't fly United (due to cost) we were not sure what to expect from Turkish Airlines since we didn't know anyone who had flown it before. It was very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed the flight. We felt like we received first class treatment in the economy section of the plane. From warm hand towels, beautiful menus for meals and beverages available, a toiletry bag and much more. The inflight entertainment was awesome. Love the large screen and the touch screen abilities. So many great choices."
Cons: "The temperature of the cabin changed drastically from being very hot to very cold in a short matter of time. The boarding process was also not organized well at all as we lined up in our groups, but people did not follow this so although we were group A, somehow people from lower groups were boarding before us. The seats were a bit hard."
Pros: "I really enjoyed how comfortable they made everyone feel - no matter if the patron was flying first class or economy."
Cons: "Long flights are usually daunting but I feel that Turkish Airlines made enjoyable. There wasn't anything I didn't like."
Pros: "Movie choices plentiful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost an hour while passengers were on board the airplane."
Pros: "the crew, meal, flight, every thing was excellent"
Cons: "It was nothing about the flight itself but the about the Istanbul terminal. If Turkish airlines wants more people to travel through Turkey should improve the following: 1- Should make free Wifi available to every one. 2- Should keep the bathrooms clean at the terminals."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "misspellt my name!"
Pros: "The service and space on the airplane were excellent."
Cons: "The boarding was a little chaotic but that may be a result of the limited space available at Newark Airport."

Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"

Cons: "Flight late missed connection flight for me. TV on arm, too small too close difficult to rewind had to shut down during descent while seatback TVs were still allowed to play"
Pros: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."
Pros: "The service was top notch and the comfort of economy class is better than any American airline I have been on."
Cons: "U cannot think of anything."
Pros: "The convenience of an early arrival time in Frankfurt to catch another connecting flight to my final destination"
Cons: "Lufthansa was GROSSLY late to depart,for no apparent reason, causing me to miss my connection! Lufthansa then arranged for the cheapest and LATEST flight available as an alternate connection causing me to miss a very important family event.. Very disappointed.."
Pros: "Cleanliness, entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legrooms have to be the worst in international flights."
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hrs"
Cons: "Ridiculous policy that couldn't get seat until 23 hours in advance, then that wasn't even true. Then misinformed me about what kind of seat I had been assigned. Then insisted I check a bag that did not need to be checked. Then the food was inedible. Flight happened to be late so I missed my connection, and they offered some more misinformation in that regard; There were of course human beings (staff) to deal with, but they had been reduced by Lufthansa's rules and systems so they were just robots, repeating over and over again inflexible policies. Horrible!"
Pros: "On time. Fast boarding and un boarding. Crew is very friendly."
Cons: "No tv, though understandably on a short flight."
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "Lack of good movies"
Cons: "Entertainment center was not working properly. Had to be rebooted twice."
Pros: "I loved the choice of movies"
Cons: "Lack of space"
Pros: "Unusually rough and crowded flight though that is hardly the fault of the airline."
Cons: "In economy class, there should either be adequate room for average sizes people at the least or seats should NOT be allowed to tilt back."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "i missed this connection was put on a united flight and was bumped down from business to economy. no apologies, no effort whatsoever to make up"
Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"
Pros: "The staff was not friendly at all. For international flight, especially long ones the seats should be able to go back further and not feel like a board, the seats were uncomfortable and small. The area between first class and the back of the plane had air issues, and I was sweating and so hot it woke me up, so on a 10 hour flight I got 1 hour of sleep. Ruined my first day of vacation."
Cons: "Everything was aweful except for the movie selections."
Cons: "Seats were beyond uncomfortable unless someone was shorter than 5 feet tall. Zero amenities. I know it was the economy section but our 4 tickets were close to $6000.00. A few perks would have been appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, I waited on the service center line for over 3 hours and in the end had to take a 8hr train ride in order to get to not completly miss my sailing trip. I arrivd to my boat 10hrs late when I was scheduled to take a 1.5hr flight and would have arrived 5 hours early."
Pros: "Entertainment options vastly expanded and improved Attentive staff Good check-in Decent boarding - some organisation of boarding by seat - prevents roadblocks by people trying to get to back while those in front are still putting their stuff away and blocking aisle."
Cons: "Given menus for a mediocre meal Booked window seat to sleep - given aisle at last minute when boarding Given drink then meal for overnight flight - meal would be nice - more time to sleep"
Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."
Pros: "Big plane and there is a lower level for toilets that makes it easy for passengers to access and not be close to bathrooms"
Cons: "Movies choices were not current. Haven been on Delta and United, the choices on Lufthansa were not that good."
Pros: "New airplane"
Cons: "The front seat has sharp edges at knee level. Wen the front passenger recline his seat it killed my knees."
Pros: "The basics were fine."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was really loud and talked about unprofessional things. Every time I was woken up it was by a flight attendant talk to another attendant really loud across the plane. Also, this was advertised as Lufthansa but was actually United. Kayak seems to do this frequently, and as a customer it is confusing and disappointing."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. We were also very impressed by the plane itself. The seating was the most comfortable either of us has experienced on an overseas flight."
Cons: "Good for entertainment but the headphone insert in my particular seat would only play through one ear. Not a headphone issue, they worked fine in another screen. Inconvenient for a long flight."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."
Pros: "Professional and courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Seats have too little legroom. Even pushed to back in seat, my knees pushed seat in front of me. Not on person seemed to watch entertainment, because of the program you have to sign up for. Seems like basic tv or so could be free, even if there is charge for movies."
Pros: "Food was good. Attendants were helpful and courteous . Airline was on time."
Cons: "boarding was pretty chaotic. Check in was difficult getting seat assignments. Could not do it on line."
Pros: "However the connecting time for MUC to HEL was bit more."
Pros: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Smooth and quick ride."
Cons: "There was a metal rod situation under the seat in front of me, which meant my bag wouldnt even fit, not to mention my legs. Also, I am not the biggest fan of flying and I started feeling sick at the end of the flight - kept it to myself but asked the flight attendant if I could have 2 sparkling waters and an orange juice (just to have it in front of me when I need it and not to bother anyone). I received what I asked for with an eye-roll and a shocked face. Just be nice - that's all."
Pros: "i am glad that i got there safely and ahead of time"
Cons: "it was NOT a lufthansa flight, which is what i was expecting and wanted. it was a united flight . i wanted to fly lufthansa because it is a higher quality experience than united, but for some reason after i bought the ticket i learned that united was operating the flight for lufthansa"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and several announcements made the flight easy"
Cons: "We were late !"
Pros: "Good selection of tv shows and movies. Comfortable seats. Pleasant service."
Cons: "The food was awful - basically inedible. I fly quite a bit, different airlines, and this was the worst I've ever seen/tasted."
Pros: "Service and meals were excellent and well organized."
Cons: "I booked the flight with Lufthansa and thought I was flying with them. When I first went to terminal C at Newark with my paperwork United told me I had to go to terminal B. I went to ' B ' and Lufthansa told me to go back to Terminal C , that I was flying on a United flight. So I went back and the United people helped me. It all worked out well but was initially confusing."
Cons: "The crew seemed not to Americans, funny is that I'm not even one just speak English well, rude!"
Pros: "The overall performance of the pilot and crew members hospitality."
Cons: "No dislikes"
Pros: "Flight crew was terrific. Very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The movies were mediocre and system was not easy to use."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Problems with movies and system. Terrible food."
Pros: "Terrific food in economy and comfortable seat"
Pros: "The direct connection to Milan The extreme fast flight with jet stream That the luggage arrived as well"
Pros: "Crew was nice on plane and they were trying to keep us filled with food and water."
Cons: "Horrible desk staff! Why would any airline refuse to allow a customer with kids on the plane a little sooner to allow for more time with organizing ourselves and kids. It's already intimidating to fly let alone internationally and for them to make us wait until our boarding time is inconsiderate. Plus united air had the absolute smallest and uncomfortable. I could not move and let along our poor toddler was cramped up. Our newborn was ok but it's like a 2 seat turned into 3 seats! Horrie."
Pros: "Free inflight movies thats about it.."
Cons: "Everything: the seats were highly uncomfortable, the stewardessses in the back were unfriendly and not accomadating. Any extra you requested seemed to be a bother! Again the seating was cramped and terrible. We booked with Luthansa yet ot was a united plane what a dissapointment!! One of the worse flights ever. Food was mediocer at best!"
Pros: "The food and the movies."
Cons: "Our initial flight was delayed by 2 hours and some, we lost the connecting flight from Munich to Cluj-Napoca, had to stay in the Munich airport for 12h, being very tired, hungry, having a terrible flu and fever, extremely pissed off, your personnel who did not tell us there was a relaxing area or that we were supposed to get food vouchers. The plane should've been checked and ready on time,and certainly not after some passengers boarded it. The new plane they switched it with was not properly cleaned, plus we had no earphones. One of the flight attendants was constantly passive-aggressive. I did not appreciate that at all. The tickets issued at Newark had no gate assigned for our connecting flight and with the delay and everything, more time was wasted with finding that. The boy who rebooked us for the next flight did not assist with anything, did not tell us about vouchers. after finding out about that, I was disappointed for receiving 12€ for 12h=one sandwich and one 0.5lt of mineral water. Seriously? It was not my fault that this happened. I expected better from Lufthansa."
Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "Small amount leg room"
Pros: "Great legroom for premium seats. Even though not an emergency exit, bags need to go up, which doesn’t make sense at all."
Cons: "Seats itself uncomfortable for long flights. Boarding process could be better."
Pros: "The food was great. The fresh bread is always wonderful."
Cons: "There were no free alcoholic drinks which help me to sleep. I changed seats and moved Mach further back in the plane. I don’t know if that contributed to it, but I was disappointed when I learned of this."
Pros: "That we had a bottle water"
Pros: "On time and clean airline."
Cons: "Not helpful with stroller. Wanted us to sign off that they were not responsible for if stroller broke while handling it. Insane. They said it “might “ to big even though they didn’t know what measurements would be too big. We’ve flown for the last 3 years with this stroller but different airlines and never heard of such thing. (Since it’s the smallest city mini double stroller there is and folds flat- super small!) first time we flew SAS all. We didn’t sign anything and gate checked it and all was fine but some incompetent crew at check in. Not very helpful finding seats with all four of us. Put us in different rows. Could work on their customer service for sure."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Complimentary bottles of water. Comfortable blankets."
Pros: "Top notch service , catered very much to Americans . Would definitely fly again"
Pros: "Every one from the check-in counter to the baggage claim was gracious, courteous and very interested in my well-being. It was quite a lovely experience.."
Cons: "No problems at all... a wonderful trip"
Pros: "Again, the flight was fine, and cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "When I went to the SAS counter to print my boarding pass, the counter lady couldn't find my information. She left me at the counter and went inside to find out more info. Then when she came out, she started interrogating me forcefully, about why I got United involved with my check in for my first leg of the trip, because I am causing her to have all this extra work and etc. How dare she!!! First of all. I didn't want to involve United, the service counter at SAS was closed the entire time, and the flight on my first leg was operated by United, so i had no choice but to go to United. In fact I should be the one asking why I had to involve United in the first place. Where was SAS when I needed their help and guidance???? Why was their counter closed the entire time??? Such a poorly organized airline, I'll be wary to fly with SAS again."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled the morning of."
Pros: "First time using SAS and very pleasant trip"
Pros: "Entire crew very attentive!! We ate like Kings!"
Cons: "Long layover in Newark! My fault for not noticing when I booked it!"
Pros: "I chose SAS since I have used this airline on most of my travels to Norway. It has been without any problems and I highly recommend it. The staff all try to make you comfortable and do not hesitate to get whatever you ask for. I have no plan to change plane. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office. I know they are very busy like any other airlines but please return our calls and answer questions as we are fully entitled to their attention using their airline. . Thank you."
Cons: "Multiple maintenance delays and groundcrew forgot to load some bags so there was an even further delay. Flight was cramped too."
Pros: "Great movies. Lcd Screen is awesome"
Cons: "Somewhat unfriendly crew"
Cons: "Missed my flight due to weather east coast"
Cons: "We were unaware of the need to buy an infant ticket on international flights. When we checked in to our SAS flight in Newark, we were given a boarding pass for our infant without any heads up about the issue. We also got help with ordering bassinet from the gate agent, all without anything surfaced. It wasn't until we were boarding that we learned that we needed to buy a ticket and pay $400+ and nearly didn't make the flight. Can someone follow up now, as we need to make sure this issue has now been resolved for our return flight to SFO on Thursday July 6th"
Pros: "The airline is very professional and the crew were very courteous."
Cons: "During my layover, the airline did not post the gate for my flight to Athens until an hour before, which caused me to have to run across the terminal to another set of gates."
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "The plane was hot and my seat was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "Plane left Newark an hour late and I missed my connecting flight in Oslo. Once I did get on a flight from Oslo to Copenhagen, there was no room for my carry on luggage. The stewardess took it and said it would be put in cargo, but now they can't find it! Two bad experiences with SAS in a row. Don't want to use them again."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Pros: "Very good service with excellent entertainment. Nice smooth flight. An excellent value."
Cons: "Passport control in Copenhagen is too slow to allow for a 35 minute layover. We missed our flight to Stuttgart and had to go to the transfers counter. The service at the transfers counter was outstanding and they put us onto a Lufhansa flight. In the end we got to Stuttgart 5 hours later than planned."
Pros: "Crew and plane good. Friendly and English was excellent."
Cons: "There was a delay because of a software issue. They had to shift people around manually because of it. Baggage Fee was extremely high (> $50)"
Cons: "1) on the plane, they announced a choice of two meals and I enquired why did I get one without choice and they told me the second choice was an option only for 'economy plus' !! That was a rude situation....I felt cheated and then insulted . 2) CPH - Nice : The breakfast or the included orange drink gave me an upset stomach and bad case of Hemorroides. 3) I accepted a glass of tomatoe juice and when I asked for a coke with my lunch , the stewardess said I had only right to one drink and would have to pay the rest....really ? - wine used to be free and now a glass costs $4...really ?? 4) I arrived at CPH airport for my transfer .. the flight was yet not on the screen but no one gave any instruction and no officials of any kind were around to enquire....a cleaning crew finally directed me correctly. 5) the security line in New York to board was ridiculously long...someone shouted to take off our smelly shoes...really ?? 6) most were directed to the right with four snaking unending lines to one security check . From time to time others were directly directed ed to the left where there was no line and option of two security checks. Half way through my wait , most were directed to the left and all who were 'late', were let out first to their gate. The whole experience before, on the plane and after was not worth the money...least of all a pleasant one."
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Cons: "When purchasing the ticket there was no mentione that bagage was NOT included something which I assume when flying with an All Star airline. Ended up paying an extra 70 € for my luggage - not happy."
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Stockholm was late, so I was late for the flight to Vilnius,had to recheck-in and wait for 6 hours."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "The food, the comfortable seats, boarding."
Cons: "The entertainment options, very few movies, limited kinds of music"
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Just a long layover, but what are you going to do"
Cons: "Entertainment systems were not working for many of us."
Pros: "The thoughtfulness and competency of the personnel. I needed wheelchair assistance and found that every was very attentive to my needs and very competent, especially the ones assigned to get me from place to place. Even in Rome, where we had to deplane on the tarmac, I had a young woman and a young man to assist me and they helped me in every way possible."
Cons: "I needed a gluten free meal and found it rather dry and unappetizing."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Charge for drinks. TV broken no recompensatuon"
Pros: "It was great to have a bottle of water right at the beginning of the flight! Made it easier to settle down and relax."
Cons: "It would be great to have a greater offer of music. I really like to listen to some new music from good artists and to get inspired for new music on a long flight. It's too bad, SAS only offers playlists of 1 hour..."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food option, Drinks are not free(international flight), no toilet paper"
Pros: "Introduce meals even to economy class"
Pros: "The food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't have enough money to sit in a seat with leg room."
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Seated by toilet which Ididn't realize"
Pros: "Boarding process was lovely, flight attendants were very nice, very smooth flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, somewhat small for a 6-foot+ tall person to fit, especially legroom"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Pros: "Passengers nice"
Cons: "Food options not everyone eats chicken"
Cons: "Not much talk from captain about local weather and time."
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "We were within a reasonable range of on time arriving, although we were delayed 30 minutes at the start due to fueling issues. Crew was average: no problems, no extraordinary acts of kindness. Great selection of movies to watch onboard."

Pros: "Really pleasant flight. Excellent pilot, good crew."

Cons: "nothing !"
Pros: "flights themselves were fine. But see next box."
Cons: "Newark to Oslo to Kristiansand. The "connecting" flight procedure was horrible. There was no way to forward the luggage, except pick it up, and then stand in long line, check in, etc etc., as if it were an entirely new flight. On phone they told me there would be expedited procedure. It was like taking an entirely new flight. All other countries have this worked out. What happened? I nearly missed my second flight."
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "Late taking off from Newark"
Pros: "Good food. Decent selection of movies and television, helpful crew"
Cons: "Seats are not shaped like a human spine. They curve away from the occupant's lower back instead of providing lumbar support."
Pros: "the salted almonds and cashews were very nice."
Pros: "Crew and pilots were amazing. Very comfortable flight."
Cons: "Cabin was a little to warm."
Cons: "My regular sized carry on was supposedly too large and had to be checked. I was not prepared for this as it has never happened on another flight"
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable in coach. Leather seats not foot. Clothe would’ve been better. They’d keep you from sliding."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. I loved the complimentary Icelandic water"
Cons: "I had to pay for my check in bag extra, which was not clear in the booking process. Very misleading!"
Pros: "Great seat back screen entertainment options."
Cons: "I like that they keep costs down by not including extras like in flight alcohol and food."
Pros: "Iceairline has been delayed from Newark , can’t catch the connection flight from Reykjavik to Frankfurt at same day , ponsdond to next day flight ."
Pros: "Very cheap flight"
Cons: "No in-flight food, just water. Plane was very small. I’m almost 7 ft tall and asked if I could swap for an exit row, no dice. So I felt like a human-accordion between two rows of seat for the entire flight. I got what I paid for. Cheap airfare= discomfort."
Pros: "I liked that it was non-stop. The crew was nice. They gave out a bottle of Icelandic water and pillow and blanket."
Cons: "Too crowded. Not enough explanation about the plane and different comfort levels of the different seat levels. I might have paid for upgraded seat if I had understood what the conditions would be. Also there was no explanation as to whether there would be food served or not."
Cons: "Delay in Philadelphia affected this score"
Pros: "The free onboard entertainment was a welcome surpsise"
Pros: "The flight crew was kind."
Cons: "Good evening, I’m not sure under which category our complaints should fall on your website so I will include them here. To summarize our complaint, we booked our tickets on Icelandair through Kayak (and Webjet) and upon arriving at the check-in counter on December 2, we were informed that the baggage fee for our flight would be $95 each! Understandably, we were shocked and very displeased. Nowhere in our confirmation emails or flight details was there anything about having to pay such a high rate for our luggage. The first employee we spoke to said that your airline has recently started charging such fees to compete with WOW Air and as I said to him, I would like to point out again that this is the very reason why I never choose to fly with WOW Air: they clearly state that there is a high baggage fee from the beginning of the registration process and I know of too many other airlines who don’t have such inflated fees. This ticketing agent and the manager said that the level of our ticket (apparently called Economy Light) indicated that we would be charged this baggage rate. It is now my understanding that on the Icelandair’s website, these levels are described but no such options were listed or explained on the Kayak website or any of our confirmation materials/emails. It is the responsibility of your site to post these important details in a conspicuous place so that travelers can make informed decisions. We could’ve flown with Air Portugal for a mere $50 more and saved not only over $200 each but also the inconvenience and frustration. Upon the check-in manager’s suggestion, I looked up our flight by the booking reservation number (LCWNEG) and again, the only “flight type” shown was called Economy, nothing more. The same is true for when we checked in online and reserved our seats - there was never an indication of the fees that were awaiting us. All this to say, we were incredibly upset to be surprised with an additional cost of $200/person (round trip ticket) but then, to add insult to injury, not only did we nearly miss our flight due to the length of time spent at the check-in desk, once we got on the plane and we realized we would not be served anything other than water or soda - since all food/meals must also be paid for in most Economy levels. This was our first experience with your airline/website and I highly doubt we will ever choose you in the future. I know now for a fact that other passengers who have booked through 3rd party sites have found themselves in similar bad situations. If you choose to work with airlines and offer lower rates, it is only honest and fair to make your policies clearly known to your potential customers. We felt mislead and deceived as these rates seemed hidden until it as too late. I eagerly await your response and look forward to hearing what steps will be taken to rectify the problem and make amends for this unacceptable situation. Sincerely, Mandi Vermilyea and Judith Arp"

Pros: "Friendly staff and great seat recline."
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Clean. Moderately comfortable. Entertainment ok."
Cons: "Crews did not communicate much, they flew past with the water cart and somehow we missed them. When we asked for water they just glared at us. Not very friendly at all."
Cons: "I wasn't on their passenger list. Wi-Fi is expensive for how unreliable it is. Sometimes it works flawlessly, sometimes it doesn't work at all. They also lost my luggage. Overall, a very poor showing."
Pros: "Personal tvs"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The choice of food to buy onboard is quiet limited for a long flight and the choice of movies is from the 90's"
Pros: "Video players were good"
Cons: "Smallest seat I've ever seen, no leg room, no food, the ticket person weighed carry Oma and made me check a small bag because it weighed 22 lbs. of course bag and contents arrived smashed. Cheap flight but I will keep this experience in mind on my return trip"
Pros: "A passenger that I was going to sit with had an obvious head cold or flu. Due to my own medical recommendations, I calmly asked a flight crew member if I could change my seat. I was helped nicely, no big deal. Thank you So much!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "My final flight and I was going to finally get some food. Only to find that without a major debit or credit card that wasn't happening. I needed to pay for my breakfast and cash was not acceptable. In addition to a massive overflow of parents going through passport control and neatly missing my flight I was quite unhappy"
Pros: "Thanks for offering food on a relatively short flight."
Cons: "Need more vegan items"
Pros: "I took an Icelandair flight a few years ago and this time around I noticed that the entertainment system had been significantly upgraded. The food options were a bit better too. All for purchase online, but, actually, pretty reasonably priced compared to what buying a sandwich, for example, costs at a grocery store in downtown Reykjavík. Also, all the staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process was interesting - because our flight was late getting in, I thought we would miss our connection but the passport control was quick and easy and then our flight left late so there was no need to rush"
Pros: "This was fantastic! The crew was very professional and friendly."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and pleasant. Boarding was efficient. The ablility to charge phone, ipad through usb."
Cons: "The seats were cramped. My seat was changed from what I selected and I seated in a middle seat between two very large men and was unable to move during the flight. It was very warm. No food service in the am!"
Pros: "Price and stated arrival times."
Cons: "Flight from Newark was delayed an hour. Was assured in Newark would make connection. Arriving in Reykjavik all go through customs. We missed flight. Now we are in town for 16 hours and are flying to Sweden with an hour layover then to Geneva. Have bee assured there is plenty of time to make the connection. Let's just say I am skeptical."
Pros: "The seating is certainly bigger than economy domestic flights."
Cons: "No snacks given"
Pros: "Organized boarding from rear first Customer service"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Overall the flight was ok. Crew was nice, entertainment was decent."
Cons: "Why do you charge for food?? Even on an international flight??"
Pros: "Both flights on icelandair excluded basic things that are usually standard on other airlines I've flown with: for instance there were no free headphones or snacks or food at all, only things available for purchase. I did not have a good flight experience."
Cons: "The trans-Atlantic flight did not include any food, not even a tiny bag of pretzels"
Cons: "USB port inop. Audio in movie mode was lousy, video screen was cloudy and poor def. Food not good."
Pros: "Was on a plane for 5 hours with no meal or snack All other airlines I have on offer at least one if not more'"
Cons: "No free snacks or food"
Pros: "The flight wasn't too full."
Cons: "There was not enough food/meal options. It was mostly just overpriced snacks."
Cons: "Aisle seat foot area was less than 1/2 the size of the middle seat."
Pros: "Service was attentive. Flight went very smoothly. I was glad the plane was not packed. He extra empty seats made it more comfortable."
Pros: "Check in and boarding went okay"
Cons: "Constant delays. All planes were boarded at least 30-45 minutes later than expected and the late boarding delay on one of the flights caused the plane to miss a flight window and the entire plane had to sit on the tarmac for almost 3 hours. This extra time on the tarmac caused me to miss my connecting flight and I had to sit at the airport for over 8 hours waiting for the next available flight. Also, no complimentary food was given on a flight that long."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "We could not confirm seats online before flight, and had difficulties with unhelpful staff checking in at Newark. She was able to get us seats together (2 couples), but ignored our request not to be in an exit row. Seat would not recline."
Pros: "Held the plane when our flight from Denver was late."
Cons: "No tunnel loading."
Pros: "Staff very friendly, easy flight."
Cons: "Found the food to be confusing. Wasn't sure what was included in my ticket, so I didn't get anything but water."
Pros: "I slept most of the flight. I did not use entertainment"
Cons: "My husband forgot his head phones in the seat pocket (9C)."
Cons: "Seats are very small and no head phones provided. Telephone assistance was excellent and courteous staff at both airports."
Pros: "Very nice crew. They served us perhaps Icelandic Lenten buns and coffee. I saw the stewardesses preparing them... a bun with whipped creme inside and chocolate on the top. Quite a feat to do that for all the passengers, Nice touch!"
Cons: "More water."
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"
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."
Cons: "We ended up with two center seats. Person in front put back her seat so I couldn't even fully unfold my service tray"
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."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and room for pack pack under seats"
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."
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."
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: "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"
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"
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: "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."
Pros: "No power @ seats. No Internet, no spirits just wine and beer. seats are not padded enough for 7 hour flight.. Old equip."
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: "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: "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."
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: "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."
Pros: "The wine"
Cons: "The entertainment platform was on the fritz the entire flight. Almost all the headphone jacks didn't work or were shorting out. This plane had the two prong headphone connectors so you are forced to use their terrible plastic ones. The legroom for an international flight was terrible, almost the same as Spirit Airlines in their economy class. The food was very bad (dried beef with noodle) and cold by the time I was served."
