Pros: "On time, as expected, no delays"
Cons: "USB chargers and more modern entertainment systems"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Who starts a boarding process 2h before the flight with only 2 counters, with no possibility to check in online (even for those without luggage) and no automatic machine? I'm very glad the company had the kindness to wait for us on the last call for boarding when you finally check your luggage 30min before departure. Should we talk about the politeness of your fight crew? In short, very disrespectful. Delivering the luggage took an extremely long time"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We would like a lil free water"
Pros: "sound quality was very poor, I could barely understand what was said in movies."
Pros: "I like the options of entertainment throughout the flight to help keep your mind off of how long we're trapped in a metal tube 40,000' in the air."
Cons: "It's a little discouraging to see the flight attendants asleep in the back of the plane. The flight was 7 hours in the daylight. I know that crews can't be flown for more than 8 hours in a day, so it shouldn't be too much to ask the attendants to stay awake during a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "US preclearance in Dublin No immigration wait in Boston"
Cons: "Coffee was terrible Sound in the headset was hard to hear. Seat had to be manually pulled to vertical My ear buds would not fit the 2-hole system on this plane"
Pros: "Flight was incredibly smooth and on time."
Cons: "I had selected an emergency aisle seat because additional legroom was offered in those seats, however, the seat was so narrow I couldn't sit there. Moved to a regular seat instead. Food was really mediocre compared to food I've had on other airlines."
Pros: "Pleasant crew and good food/snack service almost forgotten as I stood at the baggage carousel for 40 minutes."
Cons: "Baggage claim very frustrating (40 minutes) particularly after 12 hours of airports and airplanes. Messed up our ground transportation plans for no apparent reason. Totally unexplained!"
Pros: "The flight was very short, but everyone was accommodating."
Cons: "not much as far as movie/tv selection goes; very little leg room and uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "BA used to feel like luxury travel. Now they just feel like any run-of-the-mill budget airline. Felt nickeled & dimed from start to finish. Staring with being asked to pay $39 if I wanted to preselect my seat. My friend and I chose the free option of selecting our seats 24 hours before the flight--her luggage didnt even make in on the plane! It was finally delivered at 2:00 AM the next morning; well past the 8:00 PM promised delivery, which caused us to lose an entire eveing in Paris. On the return flight, home, she was told there wasn't even a seat for her on the plane. I failed to add that after booking and paying for her flight, they cancelled and deleted the SFO to London leg of the flight without so much as notifying her via email, phone, or text. Mind you, the London to Paris leg was not cancelled. Had we not tried to pre-book our seats, she would never have known they had cancelled her flight. What impacted her, impacted me, so needless to say, neither of us will ever fly BA again! BTW, their online customer service representatives were very nasty to deal with."
Pros: "it was quiet and smooth for an English/Irish flight."
Cons: "Horrific food; horribly tight seats on an E330;"
Pros: "Food provided. Enough overhead bin space for bags. Newish plane. On demand entertainment screen."
Cons: "Couldn’t change seat at checkin so couldn’t sit next to husband on a separate reservation. Not many new movies."
Pros: "Pre-check customs in Dublin is nice, flight left on-time, food was reasonably good, arrived early."
Cons: "Seat space is tight as is usual with most airlines - people aren't getting smaller."
Pros: "Great service! Wonderful entertainment(movies, tv, etc.) delicious meal!"
Pros: "Customer service on flight back to Boston outstanding. Flight attendant with sense of humor, got me vegetarian meal even when I forgot to pre-order."
Cons: "Touch screen technology horrible - practically have to punch seat back numerous times to get response (poor person in front of me!). Wasn't just mine either - everyone had this issue. Movie selection tepid. Can't use your own headset & get stereo sound because of their 2-prong system. Whole setup really bad. On overnight flight from Boston to Dublin, could barely sleep because flight crew kept interrupting with announcements about collecting trash."
Cons: "The map feature wasn't working on the flight and the sound quality for media was very poor and sporadic"
Pros: "Flight crew should have not set our expectations after leaving Paris one hour late then sitting on tarmac in Dublin with the hopes we would still make our connecting flight. Stress level was karen higher by this point"
Cons: "Took us 14 additional hours to make it home. Airline and connections should be more realistic."
Pros: "had trouble getting a ticket in the airport. was not checking a bag so they went out of their way to print one ensuring I did not have to wait in a large bag check line. seats have decent room, tv's had a great selection. food was good during the flight and staff was attentive. top 3 transatlantic flight for me(done around 20)"
Pros: "I thought the staff worked very hard and were very friendly."
Cons: "Leg room was minimal. I don't think you should allow seats to go back since I inevitably sit behind someone who puts his all the way back and I feel like a pretzel. It seemed like a very expensive ticked to feel like that."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late taking off. Mediocre service from the crew, they seemed tired. Upon arrival you could not open the cargo doors and our luggage was delayed for almost 1.5 hours. There were several other issues with thus flight that made the overall experience a poor one. Some where beyond the control of the airline, others were not. There was a lot of room for improvement."
Pros: "Much better than the Rome-Dublin leg. A modern plane with entertainment. A boarding process with effective signage and flowing lines. An absolutely top-rate cabin crew. Actually enjoyable food."
Cons: "Really was well done: systems seem to be functioning smoothly and feedback processes are working. One thing I did note was that the waste seemed to be collected without sorting for recycling. Considering you all are on the Emerald (green) Isle, you could take up the mantle of being the "most ecological" airline in the world. It would only take a small amount of messaging."
Cons: "Only 3 people to check bags for the entire flight? Are you kidding? I had to rush through passport control, skip the line, to make my flight. Unreasonably understaffed check-in in Paris. I stood in line to check my bag and get boarding pass for an hour and a half. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Aircrew was good."
Cons: "I never realized that Aer Lingus was actually a budget airline until I flew them. Price was right, but lack of leg room and things like charging for things other airlines do not, should be factored in when choosing them. There was a 2.5 hour delay and I think that passengers should have received some compensation for that. A voucher or at least a free drink, nada."
Cons: "The crew looked completely unhappy. There was only one crew member smiling. The flight was delayed by about an hour due to food. I feel if we are paying for a flight that is 7+ hours the crew should at the very least fake a smile."
Cons: "We had a terrible experience at the Aer Lingus desk in Paris. We got there two hours early for our flight and there was already a long line at the desk and no agents at the counter. Finally some agents arrived started checkng people in. After 15 min in line, they told us that if we were flying to the U.S., our flight was delayed and we would not make our connection, and to get out of line and wait. After 20 more minutes, they said that was a mistake and get back in line. I waited for approximately an hour and a half in line there, and had to run to my flight. There was no effort made to hurry us through security or any apologies."
Pros: "Well fed"
Cons: "Plane not clean. Movie screen did not work."
Cons: "It wasn't written anywhere that my flight was serviced by air lingus. So I had to change terminals to check in barely made my flight. Slowest check in staff Ive ever encountered. No complimentary refreshments thought the credit card machine didn't work so I guess they were complimentary after all."
Pros: "The crew was great and very accommodating. Seat we're comfortable. They crew kept us all informed with the progress of the flight."
Cons: "One of my seats was not cleaned up properly. There were used napkins in the compartment in front of me."
Pros: "Good amount of legroom, nice plane in good condition. Friendly professional staff."
Cons: "They have a rather meager selection of movies and TV to watch. My flight over to Europe was on British Air, and the comparison in this regard was stark. BA has tons of movies and TV to choose from, and lots of first-run. This had about 6 TV shows, 2 episodes each, and maybe 20 movies, ranging in age but mostly not very new. When you're on a daytime flight for 7 hours, this becomes something you care about."
Cons: "I was very lucky to make my connecting flight because of a 90 minute delay. I was informed that my bags might not make it, which is the last thing you want to hear when you need your bag for the next day..."
Pros: "Great movie selection, good food variety (healthy and varied choices), and sufficient space in the seats."
Cons: "I didn't get to choose my seat ahead of time for some reason (but luckily ended up with a seat I was very happy with, with an empty seat beside me)."
Pros: "No delays!"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room. Was uncomfortable for the whole duration. Person behind me was not happy that I reclined my seat and was vocal about it while the person in front of me was completely reclined and I'm a small person. Heck, I paid for the the seat and should be able to move my seat back without any issues. Still very smuched. Extra leg room shouldn't be a premium."
Pros: "The crew, the comforts, the convenience of USA pre-arrival in dublin"
Cons: "The unscheduled pre-flight maintenance that held us up a bit at the beginning."
Pros: "Crew were very polite & attentive, food & entertainment were also good"
Cons: "The main problem was that where I was sitting was to cool. All three women in my row were cold. At one point about half way through it warmed up but then it cooled down again. I was wearing a fleece jacket & had a blanket but was still cold. Of course row 28 sees a lot of traffic & noise from the lavatories so that wasn't fun but the cold was the main problem."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to refueling?? Sorry why was this not done prior to boarding? Sat for almost an hour on the plane before take off - terrible."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Hard landing."
Pros: "It is nice to pass customs in Europe during preboarding"
Cons: "Web check in was severely broken or misprogrammed during my two weeks of travel. This would not have mattered if they had simply assigned seats at the time of purchase. I bought tickets 8 months in advance for a family of 4. On our overnight flight we were shoved in to nonreclining seats in front of the noisiest bulkhead service area I have ever encountered. None of the 5 phone reps or onsight staff were able to help and were nasty into the bargain. One of them lied to me about the seat position on the phone. The staff made no attempt to keep things quiet on the flight and in fact made most of the noise themselves. The armrests can't be folded up because they crammed too many seats across. And the bathrooms right on either end of our row wafted noxious odors over us every time they were opened. This resulted in losing two days of my expensive vacation trying to recover from lack of sleep. This is in return for giving Aer Lingus the use of $4200 for 8 months. I would never use this airline again."
Pros: "Aer lingus was good and helpful"
Cons: "I don't have my bag"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I appreciated the meal and drinks I got without having to pay for it."
Cons: "The entertainment had a lot of options- TV shows, movies and games but none were really accessible to me as a Deaf person- no captions. and as for the game I needed a console which I could have asked for. I tried at one point but the attendants didn't help me. So I just gave up and read my book on my iPad. Also, it seemed to take forever to get my bags. I know it was a big plane and there were a lot of us waiting, but it still seemed to take longer than expected."
Cons: "There could have been one or two more check-in desk staff. Also it would have been nice to have a complementary beverage/snack on board."
Pros: "Free wifi card but it was too slow to stream"
Cons: "Broken screens"
Pros: "plane, crew, food, entertainment, comfort were great."
Cons: "Check-in (or lack of web check-in) is a big minus."
Pros: "Great movie selection. Nice pillows. Decent food."
Cons: "For some unknown reason, I wasn't able to select my seat upon booking my flight. Perhaps this is because I booked through Kayak instead of directly on the Aer Lingus website. Because I was traveling with a friend, I wanted to choose a seat next to him. I could not figure out how to select a seat. The choice was not available through Kayak or through Aer Lingus. I e-mailed two Aer Lingus addresses, one kayak/vayama customer service address, tweeted at Aer Lingus and even sent them a facebook message. When I called Aer Lingus, I had to wait on hold for an HOUR AND TWENTY MINUTES before anyone answered the phone. They said that I couldn't pre-choose my seat and that I had to select it at the airport. Well, when I got to the airport, the Aer Lingus staff said that wasn't true and that the only seat left was in the very back of the plane. Far away from my friend. What a waste of time. This airline was extremely unorganized. Choosing a seat seems to be a rather simple thing to do on every other airline."
Cons: "We had to go to the Aer Lingus counter in Dublin to do seat selection for the remaining leg of the journey as this wasn't an option in Budapest."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "1 hour delay leaving from Berlin plus 1 hour wait for the luggage in Barcelona"
Cons: "Was told I needed to check my bag when there was plenty of overhead space once we boarded the plane. The entire zone system seems to be fake, as they boarded zone 1 and then went to all zones, skipping 2 & 3."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay! I must be compensated"
Pros: "Vueling is a horrendous company, delayed flights - very bad organisation"
Cons: "I fid not go to Amstredam because i lost my flight. Noregiean airlines was late. I went to London."
Pros: "I slept comfortably. Great take off and landing."
Cons: "Charles de Gaulle airport"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours delayed. Multiple times I asked for an update and wasn’t given one by any crew member, nor did they make any announcements giving the passengers and update. The other passengers on the plane were extremely rowdy and loud during the wait and the crew did nothing to keep ca"
Pros: "The crew, welcoming, timing"
Pros: "Professional smiley crew"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and styled with poise."
Cons: "Seat recline"
Cons: "The boarding process was very unorganized. The flight was delayed almost 2 hours due to baggage issues while we sat on the plane."
Cons: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Chaotic under staff and poorly organized. Forced to rush and nearly miss flight despite being at airport well in advt"
Pros: "Crew was great and the seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "Never had to take a bus to and from plane, so that was different."
Pros: "They made up for lost time"
Cons: "Some turbulence and lack of communication between the crew and everyone else"
Pros: "Nice, simple. Friendly"
Pros: "the hospitality of the crew"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was delayed with no reason and I missed my check in. I specifically purchased this flight vs the one at 10 pm to not miss check in. Ugh! 20 euro late fees. So, I paid more for the flight (because the 7pm was more than the 10 pm) and now I have to pay a late fee to check in. On top of that, I paid an additional service fee by booking though FlightNetwork and they did not book my checked luggage like the price breakdown said. It’s been terrible and a waste of time and money."
Pros: "We actually made it to Stuttgart."
Cons: "Delayed in the terminal many hours only to board the aircraft and delay again. My entire delay in Barcelona was longer than my scheduled travel for the day. Also, Vueling seats are too close together compared to all airlines I have flown on. My knees were against the seat ahead of me."
Pros: "at the check in. I've been asked to pay because my booking didn't show that I included 1 in cabin bag and 1 ship for each traveler. I had to pay because I wasn't going to lose my flight. I ask you to check my booking please."
Pros: "Booked though kayak selected hold in bag was forwarded to Expedia .. did the same thing Selected a price that included check in bag when was given a choice and I get to vueling the charge me 40€ Was on the phone woth. Expedia 3 hours first to make sure the ticket was right cause I didn’t get email coformation and that the bag is included Then another 2 hours after I was charged the 40€ I hate kayak I hate expwrdia never again never ever again"
Cons: "We arrived more than 2 hours too late - this on a 2 hour flight. This can happen - but flight history shows that this flight is too late every day. The seat pitch is the worst of all low-cost airlines in Europe. Also the plane needs a renovation. We are flying regularly low-cost airlines. But non of the competitors is so expensive. Vueling can’t be recommended."
Pros: "I presume that because I'm old they treated me special even though I didn't request any special help."
Pros: "La compagnie a tenté de prévenir régulièrement du retard, par sms et mail."
Cons: "Retard de plusieurs heures, un voucher de 6€ censé permettre de « dîner » à l’aéroport... rien à boire ni manger une fois dans l’avion, et pas de compensation une fois arrivé à Paris CDG où nous en avons eu pour 45€ de Uber pour rentrer puisqu’il n’y avait plus de RER..."
Pros: "The check in luggage cost almost the same as the ticket, but the crew was nice to check in my carry on bag for free-good customer service.th"
Cons: "The bus was almost full and there are 10 or more so passengers still need to get on and obviously required additional bus. Instead of just signalthe bus to leave, the crew tried to cram more passages on the bus first before the next one, which will be almost empty- poor judgement"
Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "Couldn't add baggage online with airline Kiwi.com/ Kayak couldn't add it either. Ended up paying 40 euro in manual check in -- too expensive compared to their web 19 euro cost.. they didn't allow me to add even 72 hours before. Not happy with cost and no service."
Pros: "On time, easy check-in and smooth boarding"
Cons: "Seating has limited leg room if you are tall. Seats also quite hard, but bearable over short distances."
Pros: "We boarded and left on time, there was room for my luggage in the overhead. This is a budget airline so I wasn't expecting any thrills and thats exactly what I got - a functional, almost comfortable experience."
Cons: "You can't help but stress slightly not knowing if you're going to find a spot in the overhead."
Pros: "Nothing. Was too uncomfortable."
Cons: "I couldn't fit my legs in the space between seats, so much so that I had pins and needles in my feet by the time we landed. The food is really expensive. Never flying with this airline again."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs, clean airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendant had a bit of an attitude. Bad day, perhaps."
Pros: "The music in the background was a nice touch to the flight."
Cons: "My recline button on the seat was broken and I was sat on the back seat so wouldn’t disturb anybody behind me, the person in front reclined and rightly so for comfort leaving me very little room. Felt a little closed in."
Cons: "50 mins delayed with no apology."
Cons: "The flight was unable to take off on time, which they did not communicate until after boarding. All of the passengers had to sit on the plane on the tarmac and wait an hour until we were able to take off."
Cons: "Sits are not comfortable"
Pros: "Plane was clean and adequate seating"
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to leave at 8:15 and suddenly was changed and we left at 7:45. Flight attendants then forced us to check our small carry on items despite being told they were for a wedding the next day. Subsequently the bags were lost and then found four days earlier. Fortunately, we found our baggage but had to improvise for the wedding. Airport lost and found said that happens all the time with Vuelling and a baggage claim stub should just be discarded as worthless."
Pros: "Easy enough boarding... our flight coming into BCN was delayed due to weather, so we were cutting it very close for the connection. Vueling crew took care of our late check in etc."
Cons: "DId not have the food. No wifi or entertainment"
Cons: "2h delay for an already late flight. landed at 2am."
Cons: "CONVOLUTED BOARDING PROCESS"
Pros: "We got to our destination smoothly and a few mins early."
Cons: "The seats and space on the plane were extremely small, there was no space to breath or sit. The seats did not recline back. There were no complementary drinks. The shuttle to the flight had way too many people. We had to print our boarding passes before checking in or we would be charged 15 Euros."
Cons: "First of all we were delayed an hour with no explanation or apology, the service was poor at best, and after all the trouble they managed to lose my bag as well . Two thumbs DOWN"
Cons: "Dely and they lost my bags"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and prices were great"
Cons: "Baggage check was slow and no room in the seats. My knees were jammed into the seat in front"
Cons: "Worst experience ever. Will not fly with them ever again. Avoid at all costs"
Cons: "Delayed for 1 hour and more"
Cons: "I was ripped off! I booked a flight for 3 passengers and paid. An email came through requiring I add additional information for my two companions within 48 hours or their flight would be cancelled and NO refund. I have the app and requested text notification, whereby nothing came through. The flights were cx and I had to book 2 new ones or fly alone. When calling to dispute, I could only email. The phone number was not international. The email rely denied a refund. I requested to escalate the dispute but Wasnt ever connected to that individual. In Paris, I attempted to reach the claims dept and was told to email them or call customer service but don't speak Spanish so got no where. Out 267$."
Pros: "Cheap aitfare"
Cons: "On time takeoff Better food Television screens to watch movies Better selection of movies"
Pros: "Food, and comfort"
Cons: "Boarding process was a zoo..."
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and they never updated us while we were waiting or told us why. They changed planes and seat assignments without notice so the seats we selected we disregarded and we were not sitting next to each other. No entertainment and food was worst I’ve had on a plane."
Pros: "Newer, clean interior. Seats had power plugs and the SATA Onboard entertainment app provided free movies, tv and music."
Cons: "One of the male flight attendants was happy and engaging while the other was not friendly; and two of the female flight attendants were ok, while the younger two were unquestionably unfriendly."
Pros: "The crew was great. Service was good."
Cons: "Seat comfort and entertainment options."
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: "The crew was great very attentive to everyone's needs and helping to see that our disembark went well. Great job and a great flight. We all got home safe."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that we lost one day in the Azores was supposed to arrive on Saturday morning instead we arrived Sunday after one a.m. and again we were delayed one hour."
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"
Cons: "They lost our luggages twice (from Boston to Terceira so we didn't have anything for 3 days at Flores, and on the way from Boston to DC they lost again) would you please tell about this crammy job they are doing to President of American Air Line Paulo Menezes. They ruined our vacation, this moment I still didn't get my luggage yet. thanks Masako"
Pros: "The wine was very good"
Cons: "Business class isn’t super posh but still good"
Pros: "Jetblue airplanes"
Cons: "I went to kayak.com to book a flight,kayak booked it threw flyus who booked thru sata aero..This was such a pain to deal with.My sata flight was delayed so much i Missed my connecting flight.Sata was closed so i had to get hotel room on my own accord.If I book thru kayak,kayak should be my contact,not the 3rd party.I wasted so much time and stresse. So much dealing with tracking down my info.For future travel I will consider other websites due to the complexity of your booking methods :/"
Pros: "new plane with very few passengers"
Cons: "The flight from Boston to Ponta Delgada was cancelled twice-- More than 30 hour delay"
Cons: "No organization."
Cons: "We missed the plane from Boston to Denver but it turn out good. We were tired anyway."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were very tight and uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed - because they simply didn't have a plane- 90 min delay plus the additional time required to board 3 buses of passengers. I missed my connection in Boston, causing me to stay at the airport all night for a morning rebooking. The service counter workers said they were not required to help, they did not apologize either. I am not impressed , I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "It was clean."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal flying to the Azores was good but coming back to the US it was awful."
Pros: "Did not like anything about this airline!"
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late. There wasn't enough food for all the passengers on the flight. The flight attendants looked miserable, but were trying their best given the circumstances. The airplane was outdated, the seats not comfortable, and no in flight entertainment. SATA/Air Azores has a monopoly on the flights in and out of the Azores to the USA and no other airlines are allowed to flight that route. They should be ashamed of themselves by the way they run this airline and treat the passengers."
Cons: "extremely small seating"
Pros: "The price was right. All pre-flight personnel were very helpful and friendly. The flight was short and did exactly what it was intended to do."
Cons: "Don't expect any entertainment or decent amount of room. They cram you on and off you go. Worth it for me ..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed as usual. First class was very mediocre. There was no inflight movie, tv or music. First class doesn't feel like a first class flight."
Pros: "Horrible airline, worst service ever."
Cons: "Horrible! Would give zero stars if I could."
Pros: "Delayed 4 hrs; boarding agent couldn't give any details (meanwhile me kids are screaming); seats were narrow and I couldn't lift the armrest up out of the way. Food was terrible. No entertainment visible from our seats and the headphones didn't work. Flight from BOS was much of the same. NEVER FLYING SATA AGAIN!"
Cons: "Waited in line 30 minutes before boarding even though we had already been through security. Business and first class passengers not given any priority in boarding. Limited food and beverage service onboard. Crew seemed inexperienced."
Pros: "crew was nice and attentive. food wasn't too bad. seats were of decent size."
Cons: "very outdated- no inflight entertainment. interior felt old and used so slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was professional. Flight was on time. Food was decent and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Long flight for no entertainment. We were fine with kindles, without would have been a long boring flight."
Pros: "the crew were nice and the food was free"
Cons: "Because we didn't get the required boarding passes in Barcelona (and didn't know we needed them) when we got to the Azores we had to run around through additional passport control, to the ticket desk because the gate agent had no means of issuing a boarding pass, back through security, through more passport control. Stupid. The plane itself was really uncomfortable, and being stuck in the tiny seats surrounded by screaming children, with no wifi or in-flight entertainment was torture."
Pros: "The staff were great and the flight was very steady."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped, more than any other flight I've been on."
Pros: "generally efficient"
Cons: "bad food, no entertainment at all, did not come through offering water on long flight, toilet paper ra out in bathrooms"
Cons: "No entertainment, dirty toilets, limuted refreshments."
Pros: "We read several bad reviews of Azores Airlines but our flight over to the islands and back to Boston was smooth riding and on time if not early. Our three interisland flights were also easy and on time, staff great."
Pros: "Another AWESOME crew doing everything they can to assure passenger satisfaction!!"
Cons: "CRAMPED and miserable - smallest pitch in the air in the airbus 310! Cabin felt overpressurized and extremely loud."
Pros: "Excellent and efficient flight crew."
Cons: "Same meal as previous flight."
Pros: "The plane seemed mostly empty, so I had a row of seats to myself, but the armrests didn't really go up all the way, so I couldn't lay down. The crew overall seemed attentive. Look, the plane departed and arrived more or less on time, which is all I really care about. All of the creature comforts people complain about pale in comparison to the miracle of mass transportation by airplane for a good price."
Cons: "The boarding process was rough. We were kept waiting in a hot bus until the plane was ready for at least twenty minutes. The entertainment was shoddy, an Ice Age sequel on a small screen several rows away with terrible sound quality."
Pros: "Free food and drinks."
Cons: "Flight delayed and we got no information about why. Few updates and bad communication in general. Faced same problems on way to Sao Miguel - only that trio was delayed almost 20 hours. Will avoid that airline in the future if possible."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled and passengers were left hanging at the airport overnight sleeping on a cot. And refunds are a big hassle after the cancellation. Worse experience ever."
Pros: "Free wine with dinner. crew was attentive."
Cons: "had to walk a long way on the tarmac to get to the plane."
Pros: "The crew is very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They crammed way too many seats into the planes; it's really awful if it's a full flight, and if you're claustrophobic or prefer space around you, forget it! When the guy in front of me reclined his seat, his head was practically in my lap. Some tray tables were broken. The planes seem old. But it's the only airline that flies to the Azores from the U.S., I believe, so this is the only option. They also very slow, and we left late to and from the Azores."
Pros: "Happy for the incoming Barcelona passengers to make this flight. Ticket agent told us how to snag a couple of free seats, once everyone on board, so we could stretch out for 5 hr. flight. They serve brewed tea!"
Cons: "One hour late departing made for an extra long day of traveling. Be prepared for boarding a bus at gate to get to plane."
Pros: "Our flight left on time and arrived 45 minutes early. The crew was good and the meal served was okay. I think BOS (and Providence in the summer) are the only non-stop flights to the Azores, so that is convenience. Flight cost was fine."
Cons: "Seats are crammed in to the max. Fine if you have extraordinarily short legs. No entertainment. Main cabin screen was off the entire flight."
Pros: "On time flight , friendly service overall all great"
Pros: "Friendly crew, flight was comfortable enough"
Cons: "No entertainment or choice in meals"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and worked hard as a team. Especially the more mature male FA. Was able to get preassigned seats! Counter staff was friendly too. Wine served was good and free."
Cons: "Did not mind that there was no movie etc. We didn't even accept the earphones. The food and Azores cookies were not very good. Be forewarned! LIS airport is not very user friendly. Often had to take and wait for buses to transfer from one area to another and up/down stairs ways. Consider checking your bags!"
Pros: "Food was pretty good and staff was nice"
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Tray tables had food on them. Crumbs in seat crevices. Boarding was an absolute nightmare as we were crammed in a shuttle bus for a half hour and then waited on the tarmac for close to an hour"
Pros: "We arrived safely. Which is most important. However..."
Cons: "Everything. This airline is the bare minimum. No TV's, no WIFI, uncomfortable seats, no leg room, NO AIR VENT, narrow isles, unfriendly flight attendants... Should I continue? There are no amenities with this airline. It's like stepping back in time... Worst airline I have ever flown!"
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: "I like the fact that I sat in a row four seats and nobody was in that row so I got to lay down"
Cons: "The entertainment was horrible they had one movie showing and it was like six rows ahead of me hard to see"
