Pros: "The flight was not busy."
Cons: "Seat, Legroom."
Pros: "It was easy to get on and off. The crew were well drilled in the art of moving people on"
Cons: "BA like others charge a premium for using them over easyJet and the like. I take offence to paying £350 for a ticket and hen having to buy a sandwich. If you want to be like low cost airlines, then have the same pricing structure. BA = Rip off."
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Boarding process lengtoamd flight delayed"
Pros: "Excellent service I don’t have nothing to say was amazing"
Pros: "The food was quite nice for airline food and the crew was very helpful. Would have like to have been seated together but it wasn't worth the price to upgrade."
Cons: "The return flight was utter chaos for boarding and lots of grumpy people. Making a connection in Philadelphia was quite harrowing as there wasn't much time to make the connection and the lines at the immigration kiosks were terrible."
Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"
Pros: "made it safe to Seattle"
Cons: "Bad attitude of an attendant at the airport when inquiring about seat change for medical reasons. Complete ignorance during flight, no water or snack offered to me during 6 hour flight while a flight attendant paid a lot of attention to two ladies sitting close by."
Pros: "Food extremely ordinary-crew scarce when needed-stuff “sitting” around when they should be removed-standards of “American airlines” r way below others & should not be-BA whom I booked with should find another partner-Still waiting to be impressed by a NA airline"
Cons: "Service, staff, food. Hoping the return flight will be a bit above the norm"
Cons: "Comfortable all crew very helpful and polite"
Pros: "One of the members of our party needed extra assistance because of an injury. We let BA know ahead of time online, and there was someone waiting to help at every connection and step of our travels. The staff and crew definitely went above and beyond to make our trip easier and more comfortable."
Pros: "Smooth experience"
Pros: "Crew in club was excellent. Could not ask for more."
Cons: "Ground staff absolutely unorganised and rude. Boarding a complete shambles. No announcement, no group and priority boarding. This resulted in us losing our a slot and the flight to be delayed by almost an hour. One would think they have never boarded a plane before."
Pros: "The crew did their best. They were efficient and polite, no complaints"
Cons: "First of all, it wasn’t British Airways, it was operated by American Airlines. The seats were cramped; just barely enough kneeroom and I’m only 5’10”. There were no monitors on the seat backs and no choice of entertainment, only monitors hanging from the ceiling. I suppose the airline assumes, probably correctly, that these days everybody has their own entertainment on laptop or tablet. The problem here, though, was that there were no charging plugs at the seats, so you’d better have a full battery when you get on and hope it lasts. Of course, I could have just read the inflight magazine, except that my reading light was broken. Food was decent for airline food."
Pros: "After 18 hours of travel I just slept on this flight. Got on, fastened my seat belt, and don't remember take off or landing!! But the plane was MUCH cleaner and nicer than our international flight."
Cons: "Flight crew was a bit loud and it woke me up a couple of times, but it was at 2 pm. So I didn't expect them to be quiet."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was late, it was cramped, they make you pay for everything suitcases, soft drinks, the lot, next time we will consider who we spend our hard earned cash with Disappointing as I am a real advocate for BA"
Cons: "mybroken seat"
Pros: "Pilot gave good communication of flight progress, and arrived early."
Cons: "Slow boarding and disembarkation processes."
Pros: "I was not given a chance to like anything as the flight was cancelled."
Cons: "That when I called to rebook another flight, I was on hold for 75 minutes. Yes, that was 75 minutes. I was switched from British Air to Finn Air and then back to British Air. It was a mess."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "My wife had a tall guy on one side whose knees spilled over into her. She also had a tall guy in front of her who fully reclined his seat. She felt like she was in a coffin. She had to get up and walk around to get some air. The seats are too close on this 747 that no one should have to fly it. ."
Pros: "Nothing in particular but it was positive."
Cons: "It was quite crowded but still fine. I would have appreciated a snack and a drink but this is not a reason to be disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding an absolute chaos, rude ignorant staff, old dirty airplane"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food bland and limited choice Do not like the new bottle service in Club Service slow Seats very uncomfortable and less seat pitch than on other airlines"
Pros: "Plane had a bit more legroom than others I've been on recently. That was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food Uncomfortable seats Rude staff Very overpriced"
Cons: "I thought I was supposed to get a free meal and was never offered that or even a complimentary beverage. The flight attendants allowed a group of four passenger to stand during almost the entire flight in the aisles and in my row, making it difficult for people to get around them and didn't allow for an enjoyable flying experience."
Pros: "Good food Welcoming and friendly flight attendants Amazing selection of movies, TV shows, games Excellent customer service Comfy seats with ample legroom"
Cons: "My seat did not recline at all. When notifying the flight attendants during the meal/beverage service, they said they would note down my seat. However, nobody ever gave me any assurances that they would really inform maintenance to resolve the problem. Half way through the flight, my screen froze. Nothing would start it up again. After waking up hours later, I informed the flight attendant and she was able to reset/restart my screen individually. Everything worked perfectly afterwards"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 hours after already being there for a 4 hour layover."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and the food too"
Cons: "The only thing not that good is that The comfort of The seats and The legroom was not The bestia, at leas not for a long flight like this pone."
Pros: "quite nice and friendly staff. many vacant seats and thus much space to seat comfortable"
Cons: "old airplane, kind of run down impression. annoying and not really working touchscreen, lousy choice of movies. Everything had the air of not being organized, we had to change our seats twice without knowing, why. Really poor food compared to any other airline I know. One of the stewards constantly spilled drops of beverages over me, when he was pouring them for me and the passengers around."
Cons: "Seats on the flight London to Barcelona weren't as comfortable but it's not fair as it's just the model of airplane. Although modern seats just weren't that good to try catch some sleep."
Pros: "Free soft drinks. Average boarding speed. Was able to bring on my rather large carry on bag."
Cons: "Like the flight from Amsterdam to Philadelphia, the seats were extremely uncomfortable and wouldn't go back much at all. On this flight my tray was also broken so I couldn't ever put any drinks on it without them spilling everywhere. The flight attendants were the worst ones I have ever had on a flight. Very unpleasant and rude. They would barely pay attention to customers and would only gossip when they were making their rounds down the isles. One of them made an attempt to bump either my arm or my leg every time she walked paste me, not once apologizing. It was very clear that she was doing it on purpose. At one point she even kept bending over to get into one of her drawers on her cart and kept shoving her butt into my shoulder and in my face repeatedly without acknowledging me at all. I was returning from a trip overseas and my appearance was less than business casual but that is no excuse to treat me like that or any other customer riding on this airline. I enjoyed my flights with British Airways on my way to Europe. It's extremely unfortunate that these two airlines are sister companies and transfer people between them. From now on I will actively avoid taking any flights on a American Airlines unless I have absolutely no other option. Sadly, this may mean avoiding British Airways as well. It's sad when Allegiant Air offers better flights than such a reputable airline, such as this."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "They ran out of food. Did not get a choice"
Pros: "Peaceful"
Cons: "Delay. Poor food."
Pros: "The audio did work for movies"
Cons: "I felt very warm and uncomfortable"
Pros: "NOT A DAMN THING"
Cons: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on on this flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). THIS WAS A BARE BONES PLANE> We will NEVER use KAYAK again."
Cons: "Three hour delay put me in Orlando really late (and I had two hour drive home)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours because maintenance needed to change a tire on the airplane. The delay would have been acceptable if it wasn't for the excuses the airline offered. First, they said maintenance couldn't find a spare tire, and when they did rob a tire from another plane, they said the delay was due to FAA paperwork. These reasons, most likely true, suggest American Airlines (British Airways sub-contracted this flight to its partner, American Airlines) was not prepared to handle such an emergency."
Pros: "I made it safely to Barcelona"
Cons: "Where shall I begin? The crew was ok, makes me miss flying JetBlue, the crew can learn a lot from them in what customer service and friendly crew is about!!! In my opinion, if they had the chance to learn, this crew would be the same as they are, because it feels like, get them in and complete the shift. The seat was so uncomfortable that I spent the entire 9 hrs awake. The entertainment was terrible. When watching a movie you can't simply start it when you want so if you miss show time when it started you have to begin where it is...I hope that 1st class is different than what it feels like to ride in coach because it makes me feel like steerage! I most certainly would not take this airline to Europe unless I had better accommodations because being in the coach section sucks!"
Pros: "Everything was on time. The plane was kind of full but the flight attendants really tried to reseat passengers that wanted to change their seats. To me, that's above and beyond, being in the service industry myself. The entertainment was really diverse and offered many options. The food was good and the red wine was excellent. The pilot gave us regular updates about the flight and the weather in Barcelona, our destination. The seats were roomy and comfortable. Restrooms were very clean."
Pros: "When we got struck by lightning, the pilot helped us stay safe a feel like we were in good hands."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to scary weather."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable 6 hour flight I've ever taken. No food or snacks served whatsoever, no entertainment options, flight attendants were curt, not even pillows. This would be OK for a shorter flight, but for 6 hours is ridiculous. This was worse than even the cheapest economy carrier. American Airlines bad service is definitely not what i was expecting booking a flight through British airways, which is consistently top- notch."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Sold as a BA flight but it wasn't BA but Vueling a subsidiary of BA. This is in the small print and feels like a deliberate misleading statement. Far worse than other budget airlines like easy jet. Poor organisation and lack of staff with adequate training resulted in lack of information, long queues at check in and delays with take off and baggage collection. Practically queued for 2 hours. Make sure you arrive at least 2 30 hours before check in or you may miss your flight."
Pros: "got there alive"
Cons: "booked British Airways, got American Airlines. I didnt want American airlines. I would have booked American Airlines if I wanted American airways. there was no indication that the flight would be operated by any other than British air until I got to the check counter at British airways, and they sent me to the excruciatingly long check in line for American."
Cons: "The flight from Phil to San Diego did not have tvs on board and when I was flying from San Diego to London the flight was an hour and half late for take off because the crew arrived late."

Up-to-date entertainment such as movies.

We got hit with surprise baggage fees because the baggage structure was entirely unclear -- we even looked for how to book bags with Iberia ahead of time. Also, we didn't know that the first flight would be entirely operated by Level. Two flights and neither operated by Iberia. That's fine, but it would have been helpful to know ahead of time.

Flight was good food mediocre seats mediocre for coach extra.

Ordered gnocchi- received rigatoni for 15 euros. They don’t serve alcohol on flight

Booked flight on Iberia.com. There was no way to contact them to make a desired date change. Nobody answers the phone and social media refers you to phone channels. Vueling refused to help and referred us back to Iberia who doesn’t answer the phone.

Seats are small

Pros: "As usual Iberia sells you an Iberia ticket and sticks you on their low-cost line, Vueling - small seats, zero service. In flight wifi did not work except to take my money. Did not recieve email or load a webpage in the whole flight. Also crew was completely misinformed about COVID regulations in Spain - insisted we need a PcR test and QR code from online site and that was not true for travellers from Italy. Bush league airline; not what it used to be."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew was extremely kind and selection of food/drinks was excellent."
Pros: "On time Easy and no issues"
Pros: "The entertainment was nice!"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "La atención del crew en el avión"
Cons: "Aunque Sean viajes cortos ofrecer almenos bebidas"
Pros: "Not much. There was one flight attendant that seemed pleasant but I wouldn’t know for sure since the attendants ignored all passengers except for those who had preordered their meals."
Cons: "It was extremely frustrating that there was no kiosk available when checking in. I did not have a bag to check, yet I waited on a ridiculously long line to check in for my flight. The people working the desk at the gate were slow and unpleasant. Service on plane was terrible."
Pros: "One crew guy was really nice. I had bruised my leg and he gave me ice and checked in on me."
Cons: "Vueling/Iberia lost my luggage."
Pros: "Fine flight once we were in the air."
Cons: "There were NO SIGNS saying it was a level flight, not Iberia. No one at Iberia check in desk etc. We eventually figured it out after a while. In general Iberia and level are short staffed and unorganized. If you're willing to deal with this, it's an affordable option and they'll get you from A to B."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I checked in online and paid for a checked piece of baggage, never received the boarding pass, so when I arrived to the airport to drop off the luggage and wait for boarding, the machines didn't recognize my ticket locator and I had to stand in line for almost 2 hours (missed my flight)…"
Cons: "Crew was friendly to some people and completely ignored others, or at least me. Not sure if they knew Passenger status or what."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok, had holl rodarte options and good variety"
Cons: "Seats are hard, no leg space, no elbow space, the upright is 90degrees. The crew is not helpful, to the point and act like they are doing you a favor by being there. In one instance the attendant told a passenger "you can move your bag, or I will move it for you." To another passenger, without prev"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "It should have departed on time. It departed 50 minutes later than the original time."
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Pros: "Clean and fairly new aircraft. Good flight"
Cons: "Ground staff more helpful"
Pros: "Don’t feel fully informed of what is going on. Had overhead bin opened and seat reclined during takeoff."
Pros: "Gfggfgggvfvfvfgfdhygtgdhfffdcdcf"
Cons: "Gbhbhfhyhyugfrrfffffgggffccxccccvvgfcvgvggbbvvgcvvv. B"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Ticket had no info on baggage allowance. Got charged $55 for one piece. Website has glitches that would not save passport info. Flight attendant did nothing. Did not ask people to have their seats upright during landing. No food or even water for a 7 hour flight unless you pay. Seat uncomfortable. Horrible experience."
Pros: "On time, clean airplane, smooth, good flight overall"
Cons: "No entertainment or food on board. Not even drinking water"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight from Milan to Barcelona caused us to miss the connecting flight and we were stuck in Spain for the night. Will not get back to US for another 2 days."
Pros: "Nothing -- though seat was okay. No leg room, but it reclined a little, and had those foldable headrests."
Cons: "The boarding was supposed to be by zone, but was just a mad rush. They served no food, not even for money. There was an onscreen ordering option, but for the entire flight it said "this service is temporarily closed". They didn't have a beverage cart. Not even water or coffee. I couldn't even get a cup of water to swallow some ibuprofen and an allergy pill (somebody brought a companion cat, I suspect, quite near to me). No food or water on an international flight across the Atlantic??? You've got to be kidding me -- that's gotta be close to illegal, not providing any means of hydration. But it's certainly cheap, mean, and unacceptable. Pathetic, too."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays an chaos"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "We had to walk onto the tarmac and climb up stairs to board the plane carrying our luggage and small child."
Pros: "Once I understood how it worked it was a breeze"
Cons: "Made more than four different lines before 1 understanding Iberia worker helped us out. Was told that that wasn’t the correct line and sent to another. The next place the same for more than 3 times. Then finally, Raquel, LISTENED, and away we went."
Pros: "Some good films to watch"
Cons: "Terrible seats mediocre food our tickets said Iberia but it was actually its low-cost version Level"
Cons: "Layovers are what makes the flight bad."
Cons: "The plan was too small."
Pros: "The cool thing about this airline is that it’s dirt cheap to get from Oakland to Barcelona!! I will say tho, you do get what you pay. We purchased the most basic flight and that’s really what it was. Tight leg room and lots of people. If you’re over 5’5 I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting extra leg room if it’s available. Aside from that. The flight was cool and the staff was nice!"
Pros: "Good organization and time on flight."
Cons: "In 10 hours never offered water."
Pros: "Airport was spacious and gate area/aircraft clean"
Cons: "Captain made. Or announcement other than twice very loudly to announce take off/landing to crew. Woke people up."
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable and no food or drinks with basic fares (have to wait for separate paid cart). Watched a sick woman be told to go away when she asked for water."
Pros: "Our flight was subcontracted through another airline, Level, so my comments are related to Level."
Cons: "I called the airline a week before our departure regarding the baggage fee. I was assured the fee was included in the price. However, at the time of check in, I was charged a $55 checked bag fee."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Iberia, operated by AA and finaly no flight!!!!!"
Cons: "Slow service by the flight attendants; poorly stocked food options. perhaps it’s a European thing with budget airlines but to pay for water is unacceptable."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "No movies or videos. Children crying and screaming."
Cons: "I got to airport and it wasn't operated by iberia as I had been told. Instead one part was operated by American Airlines in the second part of my flight is operated by British Airways which involved a 30 minute walk and train ride through the airport"
Pros: "Professional kind and helpfull crew Punctual departure and arrival on time"
Cons: "No free headphones available and no games on personal tablets No vegi dishes and no choice of meals for allergic passengers Very little space for legs"
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Extremely punctual Friendly staff Comfortable seat design Outstanding entertainment options"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, not even a glass of water. Check in was horrendous. I pre purchased luggage Check in but when I arrived in airport the automated system doesn't like to that piece of data. Didn't know that so was in a long line to use automated check in when I was supposed to be in an even longer line to have service personnel check me in. So finally after standing in both lines I did get checked in......."
Pros: "Helpful staff."
Pros: "Good seat , short flt. Too short for food."
Cons: "Did not know I would have to pay extra for luggage. I may have overlooked something when I booked."
Pros: "I liked the food"
Pros: "Seats super comfortable. Big screen entrainment."
Cons: "One more time offer drinks for a very long travel time (other 10H)."
Cons: "flight was delayed by 3 hours; very rude and indifferent ground staff, almost impossible to rebook; no information/help was provided; barely made our next flight"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable seats (the most ever) No personal tv/entertainment."

Cons: "No delay in departure"

Pros: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew was good. The plane was clean. The snacks provided were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so that could improve. There were no entertainment options. It was a short flight but at least they should have a audio channel or something."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "All great"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 20 minutes, then another 20 minutes, then another 20 minutes, ended up leaving over an hour late"
Pros: "The one glass of white wine I was served was delicious. Crew was friendly. Food was surprisingly elaborate for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding process a bit chaotic. The process started before they were ready to let us on the plane. My special meal was forgotten until after meal service. They skipped our row for beverage service and there was nothing served prior to the meal."
Pros: "A good airline- I will use them again!"
Pros: "Self checkin, there was no line and things moved quickly."
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late because the boarding process was so slow. They took forever and then literally bussed us to the other side of the airport to the budget carrier side, which wasted more time. Was a bit of a joke really. Served seafood snack, not everyone eats seafood."
Pros: "Nothing went wrong so it is good enough for me"
Pros: "Really nice crew, good food and wine, very attentive and accommodating. I’m used to flying spirit and Norwegian and this was a huge upgrade, though there’s not much in flight entertainment. Definitely good and cheap. Will fly again."

Pros: "Clean plane, nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Pros: "There is enough space between seats. Good selection of movies."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late, and they would not let us take our carry-on luggage on the flight even though there was plenty of room in the overhead compartments, which caused us to miss our return flight home overseas. No customer service desk at the airport. Ended up costing hundreds of dollars more to book another flight home."
Pros: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "Same as previous flight"
Pros: "The head stewardess was so helpful and nice! I was traveling alone with a 3-month-old baby and was very stressed out. The head stewardess helped me so much, gave me a more comfortable seat, a private place to breastfeed and a bassinet for the baby! She was amazing and I owe her so much for making my experience better. I also received a baby gift package that had a much needed pacifier clip! The flight was also the smoothest flight I've ever had across the Atlantic!"
Cons: "No movie was shown on the shared TV in the first row. Had to only listen to music. Long stressful wait to board."
Pros: "Our flight was late, so we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona, but TAP had already rebooked us on a different flight and had boarding passes all printed out. Good Job."
Pros: "Easy mobile check in process,"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service!!"
Pros: "They gave us good snacks. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "We were delayed 1.5 hours. Had to sprint and almost missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Cabin staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped seating; rude baggage handlers; bad system for boarding"
Cons: "The attendant who checked me in at the Porto airport was very rude and sarcastic. At the gate they said the flight would be delayed half an hour, however they just called us to start boarding a half an hour after the flight was expected to leave. At that time the passengers of the previous flight were just starting to leave the plane so everyone that was about to board then had to stand in the freezing cold tunnel way with all of our bags for another 20 minutes while the previous passengers got off. There was no food or any beverage other than water offered on the flight."
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: "No issues, short trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Slow baggage claim"
Pros: "The plane was new, clean, and spacious. The staff was mostly helpful and friendly,"

Pros: "Slept the entire way there. Comfy seats"
Pros: "Very quick and efficient"
Cons: "Carryin size is so small for the airline"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight from Porto to Lisbon was late. We almost didn't make our flight from Lisbon to Barcelona. Our luggage didn't make the connection."
Cons: "We had to pay for a check in luggage fee. Then flight was delayed for about an hour. The gate number change so we had to keep on checking to see what gate it was to be. They keeping on changing the delayed time so it end up being nearly two hours before we got on the plane. I was very disappointed that we didn't get where we needed to be on time. Our hour and 45 minute flight end up just wasting time waiting for the plane. They could of at least refund our check in bag fee for the inconvenient."
Pros: "Stay away from TAP. I wish the people at the counter were just rude - they were tormenting us and lying to me about my luggage. When they found out I insisted on not checking my bag, they told me they would "keep it" in the meantime. Turned out they went ahead and threw the bag onto the plane. We ended up having to go find it at lost and found. They initially told me it was going to only take 5-10 mins to retrieve my luggage, but then 40 mins passed and still nothing. My poor mom had to wait by the empty belt - and boarding started and the luggage still wasn't there. They forced us to pay 35 euros (it's principle, not the money) when their policy said nothing about it when I booked it on the website. My mom was in tears and I had the worst few hours of my life. TAP - you are disgusting. It takes a lot for me to be upset but you really did everything out of your way to make us suffer. Even told us we might have to miss our flight. You put a huge dent on my trip."
Cons: "Please see above."
Pros: "The crew."
Pros: "New plane. Great service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. No entertainment system."
Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it. I place all of the blame on the Lisbon connecting terminal. I am not happy."
Pros: "A short flight, on-time."
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "The plane was really comfortable and clean with plenty of legroom, and the staff friendly."
Pros: "All included extra inches of leg room and personal entertainment system at no additional cost. Food was excellent on our way to Europe, not so good on the way back but still decent. The crew was professional and courteous and the boarding process (two kids included) was very smooth. This has been our BEST experience with an airline in 15 years of traveling annually to Europe. I will book with TAP for now on."
Pros: "Basically on time and the employees were very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Having to take a very crowded shuttle bus to the plane."
Cons: "the second flight was late by 30 min."
Pros: "We were shuttled to the plane then the plane wasn't ready, so the bus took us back. We just stood on the bus by the gate for a good 20min. Then went back to the plane again. This time it was ready for boarding. I don't understand why they took us if the plane was ready. Once we were there why did we go back to the gate again?? Get it together TAP. My first and only experience and it wasn't a good one."
Pros: "Comfort And good service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket 4 months prior to flying....traveled half way around the world and the flight was oversold. I was bumped and left with people meeting in another country waiting for no one to show up. Go to hell TAP Portugal Airlines."

Breakfast too light

Pros: "It got me on the way"
Cons: "An outlet and letting me get into Canada"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "It would have been nice to depart within an hour of my original time."
Cons: "The plane was extremely full. No chance of social distancing."
Cons: "Seats need to be bigger (wider)"
Pros: "The text messages from United"
Cons: "I thought that this flight was booked through Luftansa, at least that is what the ticket said. After waiting in line at the Lufthansa desk, I was told that the flight was actually through United, so I had to go and wait in line at an even longer United desk. Then, United charged me $60 for my bag!!"
Pros: "Ronald our flight attendant made our first flight experience to Europe great. He was amazing."
Cons: "I would not change anything."
Pros: "Empty plane personal seating everyone"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay for 3 hours"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! Friendly and attentive!!"
Cons: "More snack options other than pretzels would’ve been nice."
Pros: "Minimal turbulence"
Pros: "Early arrival after on time departure"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Friendly staff and efficiency"
Cons: "None that I can think of"
Pros: "Flight was pleasunt overall and sits were comfortable, flight crue was pleasurable and polite, I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Food was really bad, it was not cooked all way through and chicken dish didn’t have any chicken but only mush as well as rice was not cocked. For united airlines, the food should be much better"
Pros: "First off I’m a Diabetic and some of my diabetic medication and or supplies are with me and some in my LOST checked luggage. I currently say lost because it Day 3 in Ibiza and the luggage never left Newark with my flight originally and is supposedly in Barcelona while I’m here. Called everyday for updates on my bag and they give you very little useful info. Oh and the 7:45 departure last Thursday didn’t leave until 2:30am, then they kicked us out of our economy plus seats picked for comfort and tossed us in middle aisle seats some place else which were ridiculously uncomfortable. There’s no entertainment except in first class and this is a 777 huge jet. Filing a claim, sending a letter to their ceo, a letter to he DOT, and grabbing a good lawyer friend for counsel on this because it’s a disaster. I had to buy everything I needed which isn’t enough and I’m also running out of diabetic supplies since the rest I’d my lost / delayed luggage. So delayed flight by 6hrs, kicked out of original seats, lost and delayed luggage, airlines seems to refuse to send it to my hotel through other carriers, 3days and no luggage and wondering if they are going to send it to Ibiza while I’m heading back to Barcelona today. No one calls me or emails or updates me on any status changes of where my bag is and what’s going on. Their customer service sucks and it’s some guy or girl in another country who gives no fks about your situation. I will never fly with United again"
Cons: "Everything see above"
Pros: "I liked the extensive entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t like that for about 10 hours there is no meal service."
Pros: "That I could take a traditional sized carry on and personal bag onto the flight for no additional charge. Flight crews very nice. Also complimentary beverage included. So nice to not get nickel and dimes to death."
Cons: "Happy to get free WiFi but couldn’t get it to work. Also, a GF snack like nuts that don’t contain wheat would be nice"
Pros: "I'm glad the problem was found prior to us leaving the airport."
Cons: "Having to wait almost 2 hours, missing my connecting flight.. causing undue stress prior to vacationing -OVERCROWDED!!! had to sit in a center seat squashed for 3 hours."
Cons: "Plane was in poor condition. Made loud beeping noises during final part of flight. No power outlets at seat."
Pros: "My father passed away earlier that day and I needed a ticket quickly to fly home. At the airport I was a mess and the airline counter attendant was so amazing helping me ( I had never flown United and had no idea about their luggage policies ect..). She quickly pulled me aside.. helped me with checking in and did her best to fine me another seat thatvwas better than the one I had already chosen.Also, she gave me a hug and her condolences. Flying with an airline that has heart helped me so much during one of the most difficult times of my life. I will absolutely fly with them again."
Cons: "No complaints ... but I paid for a movie to take my mind off of my father's passing during the flight and there was a short in my monitor for our whole row. It kept cutting in and out and "searching for signal", I only was able to see 1/4 of the movie I paid for with all the interruptions in signal."
Pros: "All was good. Flight attendants helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything! The flight left on time and landed early. Service was great and the staff was super."
Pros: "Well organized."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece"
Cons: "I've flown 2.5 MM miles over the past 2 decades and United service has deteriorated. Pilot made up some time so arrived 1 hr late then waited another hour for our baggage."
Pros: "Everthing, except the typical cramped quarters."
Cons: "The cramped seating"
Pros: "a little bit more foot-room than my previous flight on a different airline."
Cons: "Uncomfortably warm!!"
Pros: "The stroopwaffles were a tasty treat. The flight was well managed and crew was attentive and professional. I never have problems with United and like how pilots keep us informed with when to expect turbulence. The first hour through storms was a bit scary. T.v. on the seats was a good feature but I didn't order anything."
Cons: "I put my phone in the pocket in front of me and when I took it out it was sticky with gum someone put in there. Inevitably crew can't check every pocket and nook for gum or garbage from previous travelers. I don't blame them. We almost were asked to leave the flight bc it was overbooked by 2 seats. Made me a bit nervous when we walked by check-in and they pointed out we were a traveling pair. Lucky there were a few others"
Pros: "Great experience. Good service"
Pros: "I fly weekly, but try never to book United because there are always issues with my support animal. Without fail, regardless of the city, the agents at check-in do not know what to do. Each time I'm met with annoyance at having to check me in, and I usually end up calling either the disabilities desk and handing the agent my phone, or asking for the CRO. I have to leave an extra 45 minutes to accommodate flying United every time -- ridiculous. This time I also got a load of unprofessional gate agents cooing and awwing at my my support animal, and trying to pet him. When this happens I always simply state, "please don't" and this was key with rudeness as well. United please provide us with more professional and adequately trained staff at the airports. Once we're on the planes it's fine. But you seem to have VERY low hiring standards for airport staff"
Pros: "All good, no complaints!"
Cons: "Hour late taking off and customer service terribleness!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothe!"
Cons: "Not 1 thing."
Pros: "The incoming plane was delayed due to 'equipment prep'. Since it was connecting me to my longer leg, I was nervous. The crew did a great job of deplaning everyone and getting the plane ready for our flight with very minimal delay."
Cons: "It was a quick 30 minute flight and everything was fine."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and attentive to my needs. I like good service and friendliness so for this experience I give 5 stars"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable in my seat but that's expected on an airplane"
Pros: "Tv"
Cons: "The tv kept shutting on and off"
Pros: "Flight was disorganized because of maintenance issue"
Pros: "TV option"
Cons: "Confusing boarding status regarding priority (how did I get 5th) Had to check carry on bag Terrible leg room. Worst I've experienced. Knees hit seat in front Rough landing"
Pros: "Getting through the airport was a breeze"
Cons: "My wifi didn't work on board I was completely counting on it to work and I paid for it and it never actually connected me (so I wasted the money and didn't get a refund and I also missed an important online meeting!"
Pros: "Seats are comfy"
Cons: "Food service sucks"
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could with what was presented."
Cons: "Pilot should of gave us accurate times rather than saying "we should be taking off in another 15 min folks" which turned into 4 hours, pretty crazy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed connection, chose to go to Minneapolis and was booked on a flight that I didn't have time to get to the terminal, so was rebooked a 3rd time, missed my shuttle, have no idea where my luggage is"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Showed up at gate to get my seat and attendants seemed flusterred and unprepared. It seemed that they were having trouble finding a seat for me and I could hear them discussing options with other airlines to get to my final destination"
Cons: "Where do I start. Let's start with booking and the lack of knowledge, inability to listen and respond in an appropriate manner, and the fact that after I asked to speak to a manager due to the previous issues with the agent, and after being transferred all I needed was some understanding and support due to a family emergency and instead I get a short rude push back and then hung up on by the manager after I expressed my struggle and desperation for help. The lack of empathy and just the overall experience was beyond horrible, and if it wasn't for the desperate situation I was in I would have never used your services."
Cons: "I didn't like that on the way to Philly I could watch movies on my device, but on the way back I would have had to pay to use the seat-back system."
Cons: "Poor food quality, mechanical issues caused delays, gate change."
