Pros: "Crew was a top notch, very focused and carrying. I am loyal lufthansa fan and been flying with them with more than 20 years."
Cons: "Guys, we need to do something with these outdated business class seats, infotainment system. Omg, last century, movie selection bottom poor :( We are always playing catch up game in terms of interior. How long it took you to offer padding & decent blankets in business."

Cons: "Good was average to bad"
Cons: "It was weird that for dinner the meal was vegan as requested, but the breakfast was not and so couldn't eeat it. It was weird that one meal was correct and the other was so lacking."

Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the seats and the spaciousness of the area allowing for standing out of the way. The service was exceptional and the food on this flight was very good. Entertainment was also very good."
Cons: "My only suggestion would be if the crew would inquire if you've ever flown either with Lufthansa or specifically business Class and just give tips if needed. Other than that, on this leg of our journey we had no complaints."
Pros: "Great crew, great flight, food and drinks was awesome"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I can't choose my seat from earlier because I a big girl and I like to set in the emergency exist seats so I'm not crush up in the middle seat not comfortable and long flight like that lots of pain at the end of the flight"
Pros: "Overall great and on time !"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth, take off off & landing. The crew was polite. Although they kept calling me sir when I am a woman."
Cons: "There were minimal new movie choices. A lot of old movie movie options. The food was terrible! Definitely need to step their game up here. I also didn’t like that the customer behind me kept bumping my seat every time he moved or made a movie selection."
Pros: "On time, smooth landing and take-off, friendly crew,"
Cons: "Still not enough legroom in Premium Economy but much better than Economy."
Cons: "Delayed in Munich an hour late"

Cons: "Flight to Fresno was delayed three times. Flight time was 6:21 and now delayed until 10:21"
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("
Pros: "They kept feeding us! We were not expecting 2 meals 2 snacks and unlimited drinks in economy. We were very impressed and will decently book international with them again."
Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"
Cons: "Was delayed in a connection and missed flight. No offer or help provided to get me and children on another flight without charging me ~$9000 for another flight. Paid out of pocket for another airline. Cannot believe the extortion and lack of service provided!"
Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"
Cons: "Food not very good"
Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
Pros: "clean cabin"
Cons: "AC was broken, set on plane for an hour sweating terribly, had to stress to make connecting flight, barely made it. Movie selection did not appeal to me. Seat was super narrow and my seat did not recline fully, pure torture."
Cons: "The flight never took off. We had to wait 6 hours in line, and they still couldn't rebook many of us. When I was finally rebooked on a Swiss Air flight, the flight was invalid, Swiss didn't accept it. I was send to various different lines, and they didn't even understand what my problem was. Finally after spending 2 whole days at the San Francisco airport, I could take off with a 30 hour delay. The Swiss Air flight was wonderful."
Cons: "1 After long stand the line when i want to check in my Luggage i got shocking news According to checkin counter lady said Flight delay more than 2hours and can be 3hours no body knows how long will be delay, she recommended me to go from San Francisco to san jose airport to get another flight. it's time Enough she said , that time about 1pm, i am lucky that i arrived SF airport 3hours in advance so that i could manage to catch up another flight at the san jose airport, i had to go san jose airport from San Francisco by Taxi and the cost was 170usd because driver says over 50mils far a way i need to pay 50% more, i have a alot import meeting in germany, meeting schedule could be mess i was really shocking, how can i get back Taxi fee usd170??? 2. regards to Crew., one Passenger was collecting his handy carry luggage at Cabinet and he forgot to close Cabinet cover after he collected and it was opened that time one flight crew passing by to final check up before landing but don't see that cabinet door open, so one of passenger talk to her to close the Cabinet door, also handy carry luggage after used the passenger should Keep Under the chair for safety but even passenger keept (put) in her beside empty seat, the Crew don't say anything, it was many people keept in next empty seat area. According to rull must keep it under seat, but crew don't say anything I was very very surprised. it's very Dangerous to everybody people may hurt , i was very Scared and nervous. 3. in the dark room passenger can't see or feels that behind them whether crew come or not (passing by or not) Crew passing by and hit passenger but without saying sorry and just go a way. it's impossible... 4. i was standing at Exit door and look at the outside but same time crew came and said to me not friendly and without smile "Excuse me" and i go a way, i saw she crew want to put something inside at dress room. what i want to say the crew could be more nice and smiley face to passenger or could be nice can be wait 5 seconds but was really the way of tone is Racist, this is what i felt, really bad."
Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."
Pros: "Plane was clean and the economy-class seats were relatively comfortable. Entertainment was good. Bathroom facilities on lower deck was a good layout, avoided the usual waiting in the aisles to use the restroom. The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Was not familiar with many of the drink brands, and the drinks differed from what I typically saw on flights, so would be nice to have some explanation of what they are (maybe it was in the in-flight magazine, but I missed it)."
Cons: "the monitor at my seat did not work and I could not watch any movie. Everything else was fine."
Pros: "My wife and I loved the courtesy onboard, the flight crew's attention was great."
Cons: "Filght cancelled"
Pros: "Efficiency, courtesy, professionalism."
Pros: "They put us in a hotel."
Cons: "I lost my trip to Venice and almost didn't make my cruise ship. Lost $300 non refundable room deposit. Nothing more than an "I'm sorry." from Lufthansa. I'll never fly them again."
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I paid for a specific seat next to my friend but we did not get seats together. There was a change in aircraft."
Pros: "no complaints, everything went well."
Pros: "Seating, Staff,"
Cons: "Would have liked smoother boarding and more live TV choices"
Cons: "SAS had simply cancelled the flight and is effectively unreachable for the refund."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The seats are tight and uncomfortable. Emirates and Singapore airlines have much more space in economy class. They also have better food. The worst new development is that you have to pay an additional charge if you want to sit together. That is pretty ridiculous for an international flight AND when you have a small child with you. I can see doing that on Ryan air, but that is pretty low for a Scandinavian airline. Scandinavians have a very strong sense of family."
Pros: "My first part of the flight, from SFO to CPH, was good. It was the second part that was terrible."
Cons: "SAS never emailed the second boarding ticket and there was no agent at the gate to help me print one. I paid $20 days in advance for a front aisle seat (6E), but was boarded last (group H) and had to put my carry-on in aisle 26. The stewardess was very rude and seemed racist towards me."
Cons: "Its simple. Turns out i had to pay 360 dollars for my baggages which was hever specified in the time i was purchasing tickets cause they said im flying without and i can come back with. Who is flying without baggage intercontinental for 1 month? And 3 baggages didnt arrived. Thanks"
Pros: "Cool crew"
Cons: "More leg space on economy section"
Cons: "Seats and spaces seemed a tad smaller and less comfortable than other airlines"
Cons: "SFO-Copenhagen was cancelled. Only hint for that came from Kayak which I didn't even use for booking (I used Flyus). Sas and Flyus didn't notify us and sas customer service had to actually use 5 min to verify that flight was cancelled after we called them. That left some poor rebooking options. Anyway, I am very disappointed how Sas didn't notify us. It would have been even nastier if we had got to the airport before realizing that flight was cancelled."
Pros: "For a middle seat, it wasn’t bad"
Cons: "The seat I selected was changed. I selected 45C and was assigned 54 E Upon check-in. Why? An aisle seat vs middle seat when I paid full faire is unacceptable. Also it was not made clear that I would have had to pay to check luggage. $120??!!!! I always carry on and this could have been easily avoided by not bringing gifts. Again, $120?!!!!! On top of an $1100 flight? You have to be kidding me."
Pros: "entertainment in the back of the front seat with great choice of movies"
Cons: "I would have liked to have had the chance to purchase a better seat. When I asked about it at check-in the plane was full. So I was squeezed in the middle section which made it quite uncomfortable, especially if you have to get up more frequently as an older person, but your neighbor is asleep. A notification about the possibilities for seat purchases would have been great!"
Cons: "Delayed flight - 2 1/2 hrs. No advance info. Departure gate change after check in. No Info at original gate. Unfriendly staff. No apology. No explanation for delay. Food substandard, even for cheap airlines."
Pros: "No problems. I was satisfied"
Cons: "When people lean their seats back their heads end up in your face and you are forced to lean your seat back to make separation from passenger in front of you"
Cons: "Limited selection of movies No food choices No snacks offered during flight First European airline to fall below the standards of US airlines"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Pros: "Liked the ticket price, the service, the food and the onboard free movies, free water bottle, free ear plugs."
Cons: "Nothing--it was a good flight - on-time and with little turbulence."
Pros: "Seats are pretty comfortably and spacious for economy class (I’m small though, so take that with a grain of salt). The lunch was pretty solid, would have preferred a hot breakfast. The vegetarian breakfast was grilled veggies with fruit and yogurt on the side, kind of a mish-mash of things."
Cons: "- Would have liked a better breakfast - More entertainment with subtitles (esp foreign films) - More entertainment selection"
Cons: "No food or even water"
Cons: "I would like more checked baggage allowance."
Cons: "Luggage lost or misdirected and VERY poor effort in getting it delivered to me, once found. I still have no clothes, shaver, toiletries . . . or confirmation on when/if delivery will happen. Just simply disrespectful!!!"
Pros: "The plane from SFO to Coppenhaggen was modern and clean. The flight crew was friendly and efficient. I would fly with them again."
Cons: "The seat was not well padded for the bottom.@9 m"
Pros: "Power in the seats!"
Cons: "That plane was so hot!"
Pros: "I purchased Plus and found it a good value. My seat on the overseas leg was comfortable -- though it could have reclined better. The food & drink service was conducted as at an elegant restaurant."
Pros: "The gate agent at check-in was very helpful and knowledgeable. The entire ground crew did a good job. The crew was friendly and attentive. The plane was clean. The entertainment options were more than adequate. Bathrooms were well kept."
Cons: "I know you can't expect coach to be luxurious. But the space between seats in the airline industry in general have gotten ridiculously small. Words were exchanged between my wife and the lady (nothing extreme, but still) in the seat in front of her. When the lady leaned her seat back, my wife could barely watch her movie. All in all, I would definitely fly SAS again."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the plane was large and had many bathrooms. The seats were comfortable enough and there was a good selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "The boarding process was completely disorganized and hectic. The woman making the announcements on the plane was extremely soft spoken and the PA system was static-y so I could neither hear nor understand any of the announcements. The refrigeration system for the food also broke down on the plane so we weren't fed our second meal. Instead, they chose the cheapest and most unappealing snack of plain almonds to give us. Despite confirming our luggage situation with us at the first airport repeatedly (because of our connecting flight) SAS still temporarily lost our baggage when we arrived at our final destination and caused us to stay an additional hour at the airport after already having spent an exhausting day travelling."
Cons: "Flight delayed so that would not be able to make the SAS flight. Therefore had to switch flights to go to CHicago instead. But initial flight was booked under alaska--but boarding pass unable to be printed from any of the kiosks and we were told to talk to American. American didn't know anything about it. THen stood in Assistance line for 45 minutes to be told that we needed to talk to VIrgin American. They rebooked us on to American, which then promptly was also delayed for several hours, and we thereby missed our connection. Throughout the process there were no customer service representatives either in person or on the phone who were remotely helpful. Overall, worst travel experience of my life."
Cons: "We couldn't check in online because we had an infant in arms. So we tried to check in there. There were 3 different terrible queues. One to use the machines, one to check bags and another for special situations. We tried the machines, didn't work. A rep told us to go to the special situations line. There was a rep there that was trying to prevent people to getting into the line because it was sooo long (1+ hr). So we tied the machines again. Didn't work. So we convinced the guy to let us in the special line. It was nuts. We waited as our flight got closer and closer. Right when it looked like we might make the flight, one of the TWO reps left. When we finally made it, they said we wouldn't make the flight. We rebooked and had to pay extra. WORST travel experience ever."
Cons: "The SFO crew was not helpful at all. Upon check-in, the SFO to Copenhagen leg of the flight was 2.5 hours delayed. When I expressed concern to the SFO ground crew, they said "You'll be taken care of in Copenhagen" in a very dismissive manner. I noted that we would miss our connecting flight (Copenhagen to LHR) and that there wouldn't be another direct flight that day. The SFO crew member told me that I was wrong that there was another flight available (a 4:30 pm flight). I told her that that flight wasn't on the SAS website and she told me that I didn't know what I was talking about in a rude manner. When I arrived in Copenhagen, the ground crew informed me that there was not a 4:30 pm flight and there never was. To get to London, I had to be fly first to Frankfurt then to London on another airline. Overall, this delay cost me over 6 hours. Utterly unacceptable and will never fly SAS again."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "We departed almost 3 hours late. No explanation given over speaker. No compensation, no apologies."
Pros: "Passenger and Hannibal and Ben, crook with cop father. Excellent movies"
Cons: "Faster arrival"
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)"
Pros: "A340 just had a remodel. No media boxes installed under the seats taking up foot room"
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: "It was a pleasant flight with friendly service. Boarding was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Food choices and limited entertainment. I know that SAS need to remain competitive, but strict limits in drinks seems a bit cheap."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice selection of movies. The best price at that time."
Cons: "Crew attitude was not pleasant: no smile, no "you're welcome", as they were robots. Food was terrible."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Two meals offered for the 10.5 hour nontstop flight between San Francisco and Copenhagen."
Cons: "A little more leg room. Ability to change seat once reservation made online. The SAS website does not show your seat relative to entire place seat availability. Would have liked 24 hour customer service by phone option. They are actually closed for phone calls at night."
Pros: "paying extra for more legroom"
Cons: "Everything, small seats, lack of variety for movies, poorly trained staff, lost baggage, delayed flight and missing connection. SAS has dropped in quality"
Pros: "Introduce meals even to economy class"

Cons: "Food could be better chicken too spicy for kids"
Pros: "Flight was breezy, no complains. Nice staff Food leaves room for improvement but over all a pleasant experience But please read below"
Cons: "So you lost my luggage.. These things happen. However.. If someone pays 8 k for a one way ticket you might be able to come to the conclusion that it's an urgent trip as is. And respond or /and follow up so that I know what to do as far as cancel all things and /or max out my cc to get the things I need. Nothing from you, no word. No one picking up the phones. 8 thousand dollars worth of silence."
Pros: "Friendly crew, the plane was Very new and had wonderful screens for viewing entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "My flight was canceled the day before my departure via email. The customer service contact number for SAS did not work--I tried multiple times over the course of 12hrs+. The online help page gave a 404 error. I had no way of contacting anyone from SAS. Later that night (night before I was supposed to depart), I received another email saying I was booked on a United flight about 5hrs earlier than I planned on leaving. I had to cancel my morning plans with my wife to make the earlier flight. I never (still, a week later) was able to contact anyone from SAS."

Pros: "Boarding was ok in Dublin, even though they habitually use one of the poor gates with inadequate seating and entry to the plane from the tarmac, not via a bridge. queing and check in were well managed however."
Cons: "Disembarked at Helsinki unto a bus. Despite landing roughly on time, this antiquated procedure effectively made the flight 20 mins late, as that’s when the passengers got to the terminal."
Cons: "Had to wait for substitute crew, and they had a bad attitude. Crew could be heard complaining as they sat in rear."
Pros: "The crew were helpful, pleasant and professional"
Cons: "There wasn't anything we actively didn't like. It was a good flight."
Cons: "They canceled the flight after 5 hours of us sitting on the plane. They sent us away and told us to check back in in the morning. There’s been no communication since. I’m still at the airport. It’s been 16+ hours."
Pros: "The staff was professional and friendly. The waits were short on boarding."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late. The baggage reclaim belt broke down, which delayed our arrival at the target even more."
Pros: "We where really late and they where very helpfull."
Pros: "Decent flight from SFO to HEL, friendly staff ..."
Cons: "Ran out of food options from SFO to HEL. I was sitting towards the end of the plane ... and no more chicken so got stuck with the pork and mashed potatoes options. Need more coffee aboard the flight. ANA cleans the bathroom periodically, and wouldn't be bad to do the same on long flights. The arm rest between seats don't go all the way up, only half way. If the person in front of you is asleep during meal service, the FA (flight attendant) won't lift the seat and it may be a very uncomfortable meal experience. Other airlines will have the FA do it themselves. ...and you need to be careful about staying awake to get food (otherwise you can get forgotten)."
Pros: "nonstop to Helsinki was great...I have done this route over 100 times and this was the first time non-stop. When you have 17-19 hours travel time in your head door to door and then it is 12 - you really appreciate the extra time. THANK YOU!"
Pros: "The flight was good! Much better than US domestic carriers with comfortable seats and a good layout to the aircraft."
Cons: "Food was good, not great. Crew was attentive but missed being great by one notch and the flight could have been faster. All trifling details. But overall... If they didn't run out of chicken on the flight"
Cons: "My meal had rice that was severely undercooked. The audio quality on the entertainment system was very bad and no English subtitles were available for the majority of the movies."
Cons: "On a 4 hour flight, food had to be purchased on board or (as I later learned) purchased and ordered in advance and this option was not offered to me in check in process."
Pros: "I liked very much that Finnair was waiting for the delayed plan from Stockholm. The stewardesses were nicely dressed."
Pros: "Crew professional."
Cons: "Everything ok."
Pros: "Professional staff. Easy boarding."
Cons: "entertainment seemed more oriented towards Asian passengers"
Cons: "the flight got delayed for an hour and I missed a connecting flight. Was re-routed through Moscow and was at my destination point 11 hours later."
Pros: "My flight was very pleasant and comfortable. It was one of the few times I was actually able to fall asleep on a plane. I also like that this is the first airline that served me blueberry juice which I thought was good."
Cons: "My only dislike was that we left 45 minutes late. Maybe it was not a good situation for some passengers who had to connect immediately, but I still made it in time for my connecting flight."
Cons: "They lost my luggage at some point in the short journey."
Pros: "I liked service very much."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Uncomfortable seats bearable for the short flight."
Cons: "Late arrival caused late departure for 1 hour."
Pros: "Perhaps that we eventually got there and that the plane did not crash"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Special meal was terrible. No toiletry bag for such a long flight. Btw I paid extra for a bad seat."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Our luggage never made it to Rome, our final destination. So now we have no change of clothes - for the next 2-3 DAYS."
Pros: "Pleasant staff and crew."
Cons: "Tv screens are old and function very poorly."
Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."
Pros: "It seems a bit unfair to rate Finnair, when the flight was serviced by Iberia...that being said - everyone seemed to be put out by any request or basic question. The movies were really good and (UNLIKE the flight from Chicago to Madrid, where i was told they didn't do that) the stewardess on the flight home didn't mind giving me a second glass of wine."
Cons: "the people at the boarding desk in O'Hare were rude & indifferent. The flight attendants on way to Spain were non-existant The food was comically awful!!! The man at the check-in desk in Madrid could not have been ruder or less helpful (Hopefully for his wife's sake!) The food on the way home again was unfortunate.....that can NOT possibly be the best food any company can find in Spain. Hell - wed have been better off with a cheese & ham plate with some bread!!"
Pros: "Courteous attendants on board! Food not bad!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour and there was on one announcement unril we boarded! It would have been nice after half an hour to get an update."
Pros: "Good flight, really good new A380 aircraft, smooth nearly all the way, usual small seating space as on All airlines"
Cons: "Routine airline food."
Pros: "The new 777 airplanes were exceptional as well as the splendid airline crew!"
Pros: "Usually a 7 hours flight is a torture for me, but with their outstanding service I didn't notice how time flew by.The flight attendants were providing us with all necessary information about next connections."
Cons: "Some food has too many preservatives, margarine served instead of butter."
Pros: "Having read horror stories online about booking with Kayak's partner Justfly, I was prepared for the worst (last-minute cancellations, partial refunds, all-around crummy service). Actually, my Finnair flight was great - it was operated by BA, so it was a nice new double-decker Airbus plane. It was maybe 3/4ths full, so I nearly had a row to myself - shoutout to the jerk who decided he was entitled to the aisle seat. The flight was smooth and easy and best of all, it cost a fraction of what the BA price for a one-way from SFO to LHR cost."
Cons: "The food on BA continues to be meh, but what most people don't realize is that ALL airline food is meh, because your tastebuds don't work properly 30k feet in the air (it's a scientific fact)."
Pros: "The more modern plane with USB ports that actually charge and the higher quality and bigger displays really help make the trip more enjoyable."
Cons: "Not as much to eat on this BA flight back to Philidelphia from Hethrow as there was on the American Airlines flight there."
Pros: "It was relatively inexpensive. I didn't mind the food/"
Cons: "This flight was operated by BA. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. When the guy in front of me reclined his head was practically in my lap. TV's were crappy and the in-flight selection was mediocre. In flights announcements were very loud through headphones."
Cons: "Passengers changing seats around."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats, very dated entertainment options, bland food."
Pros: "I last traveled on British Airways in May of last year (2015) and the food was beyond dreadful. Therefore I was very pleasantly surprised that there has been a huge improvement. They were very generous with the drinks and the food was plentiful and quite a reasonable standard for airline food (they gave two full meals from San Francisco to London, whereas most airlines give one meal and one snack on that route). They actually checked us in on the earlier side, we took off very promptly and got to London early. It was nice to be on time for a change - so often I find airlines run a bit late. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Pilot's messages were pleasant, friendly and even a bit informative."
Cons: "Web check-in ahead of time was a total disaster. I got an email telling me I could check in 36 hours early and "secure a good seat" but neither of the 2 sets of codes they provided in the email would work because it was all about Finnair but actually the flight was being run by British Airways. I spent about 30 minutes on the 'phone trying to get the appropriate sequence of numbers and letters to enter so as to check in and get a good seat - still nothing worked. This was at 5:45am - I regretted the time spent when I could have gone back to sleep. My daughter later spent a further 90 minutes trying to figure it out, only to be told finally that our only option was to get to the airport early and check n there which was what we did. It was beyond irksome. Please note, if the airline actually flying is different fro the booking airline, the locator number for check n will be DIFFERENT and needs to be provided to the customer to avoid a great deal of hassle and confusion. We gt particularly unlucky because BA computers had a glitch that day but the general point still stands."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew made me feel very welcome . Food and drinks service was excellent, nice choices. Movie selection was vast."
Pros: "Did not have the special meal i requested"
Pros: "Flight was half empty, room to spread out"
Pros: "We were booked in business class for no additional charge."
Cons: "The movies shown were black and white old films."
Pros: "The configuration of the seats are really awkward. Seems very interesting at a glance, but not so nice when you have to sit in it for 10 hours. The business class seats are very narrow. I'm pretty petite so it was okay for me, but I think an average or bigger than average person would have a hard time turning at all while the seat is in lie flat position. I had a window seat which gives you more privacy as long as you have the divider up between you and the passenger next to you. You are really arm length away from each other though. And! You can't have the divider down the entire time because they serve your meals by passing it over to you across your neighbor through the divider. The divider is also required to be down during taxi, take off and landing. So, I'd imagine it to be very awkward if you're sitting next to a total stranger. You also have to straddle over someone's legs if you want to get out of your seat to the bathroom if you have window seats."
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Pros: "Very pleasant and efficient crew"
Cons: "Departing 50 minutes late. However, most of the time was made up enroute"
Pros: "The price is affordable"
Cons: "30 min late, exaggerated extra charge for a small suitcase, food was a dry sandwich."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Multiple delays for my flight. First the departure was delayed which I know can happen. Then we boarded and sat for over an hour before take off. Captain made up a story about the plane needed gas and said we would take off in 15 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later we finally took off."
Cons: "Flight to Lisbon late. Missed connection Now have 10 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "The food and proving more snacks and drinks"
Pros: "NOTHING.....................DUE TO FLIGHT CONNECTION CANCELLATION TAP AIR PORTUGAL FORCED US TO STAY STUCK IN AMSTERDAM FOR 15 HOURS"
Cons: "EVERYTHING..........................ALL TAP AIR PORTUGAL WAS A DISASTER"
Pros: "Correct timetabling and on time schedule Decent crew with high standard service wish you more success and further upgrade in your status to be as you deserve one of the best airline globally..!"
Cons: "Correct timetabling and on time schedule Decent crew with high standard service wish you more success and further upgrade in your status to be as you deserve one of the best airline globally..!"
Cons: "Real time information about departure and gate info for delayed flight would have been helpful"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew friendly on airport and flight. Plane was clean and sits were ok."
Cons: "The food could have been better."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful! The airport itself is difficult to maneuver in. No information provided regarding the flight. Airport security and police very very rude!"
Pros: "the crew did really made sure we had what we needed."
Cons: "Should have made an announcement that the 3g cellular coverage was turned on. Went on in the middle of the flight and had no idea. My phone was in the overhead bin and I thought it was off. When I landed I had an outrageous fee. Should be given a choice to use it or not."
Cons: "Good flight, on time. Service ok. Captain did a good job communicating. Nice touch with wine at dinner."
Pros: "Entertainment was fine"
Cons: "On my ticket I selected the lacto-ovo vegetarian meal and I never received it. I told the flight attendant and he said “we don’t have any more, chicken or fish”. I said “I am a vegetarian” and he gave me a tiny salad, a bread roll, and a chocolate mousse. I was very hungry as I hadn’t eaten in 9 hrs"
Cons: "Checked bag fee was expensive at $120 per bag. For the two of us bags cost $240. The plane boarded late this departed and arrived late. Otherwise a very good flight. Very comfortable, all Amenities worked, the plane was clean and the staff accommodating."
Cons: "Long wait on crowded hot bus to the plane."
Pros: "The flight was not full and without prompting an attendant took a look at my long legs and led me to a row of seats for myself. A simple gesture that was greatly appreciated."
Pros: "TAP serves edible cheese sandwiches. First time in years I eat plane food and don’t immediately regret it."
Cons: "I travel with an international carry-on designed to fit in comoartments above seats in any and all planes (Tumi alpha 2 International), and yet TAP would claim it was too large to fit and forced me to check it. My problem is not only the wait once we land, but most improtsntly that the bags are beat up in the journey. Indeed, my carry-on arrived with several scratches on the plastic edges as well as some signs of worn on the textile. Because of this carry-on baggage size restrictions, I will not fly TAP airlines again (unless I can travel with my hand purse only)."
Pros: "what a great airline! had a great flight from rome to lisbon. we’ll definitely choose TAP over most other airlines in europe from now on"
Cons: "poor and cheap plane"
Pros: "Plane newish"
Cons: "No pillows. No blankets. No boarding drink. No hanging of coats. Food bad. No entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to Florence from Lisbon. Very unhappy about that."
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Cons: "On any international flight I've been on in the past one checked bag has always been complimentary. This is the first time I was surprised by a checked luggage fee of $85. Considering my wife and I were already at the airport, we had no choice but to pay for our checked bags – resulting in almost $380 in luggage fees for our round trip flights. This restriction was buried on the ticket purchase information – a very sneaky move that cost us significantly. Won't be flying TAP Air Portugal again!"
Pros: "Nice crew, tasty snack, new plane with comfortable seats"
Cons: "Huge bag charge for anything over 8 kg! Sign said last call 40 min before flight when agent told us to check board 30 min before flight for gate assignment!"
Cons: "Delay one hour"
Cons: "Ground personnel one crew member in particular was unfriendly uncaring and unwilling to find a responsible resolution for the problem"
Pros: "Everything smooth!"
Cons: "The sound for the movies did not work at my seat or my wife's seat."
Pros: "The crew provides a good service"
Cons: "The airline wanted to double charge me for baggage after have had a layover during my trip, so when I was checking my luggage by second time in order to go to my destination, they insisted on make me pay, even thought I had paid my luggage online before to take the flight from the beginning."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No TV"
Cons: "was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "The food was good. I have Celiac Disease and they accommodated my gluten free necessities with GF bread!! Wow."
Cons: "The entertainment for an international flight (9 hours) was horrendous. The tiny TVs were actually fuzzy and it is set up so that you cannot actually choose your movie. It is like watching TV where you may tune in to a movie 20 minutes into it playing instead of starting whatever movie you want from the beginning. To make matters worse, there was no plug-in in case you wanted to watch entertainment of your own on phone/iPad."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Food and snacks were good. Very attentive crew."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Modern appointed plane with places for technology and charging points"
Cons: "Ground staff insisted carry on bags were checked in and implied this was mandatory and I complied only to discover later that majority were allowed to ignore this. Also plane was late"
Pros: "The crew were kind and considerate."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever experienced. There was an incessant, loud high-pitched buzzing noise for the entire duration of the flight (we were seated in the very back row so it was particularly loud for us, but others further up said it was bad for them too). Also, we had straight turbulence for over two hours. I've never gotten sick on a plane before, and my husband never gets motion sickness, but we both threw up (and I think several others did, too). I don't blame the crew for any of this, as I know most, if not all, of it was out of their control. However, I would be very nervous to flight TAP again due to this experience."
Pros: "Flight on time and safe Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Cramped seating Boarding dreadfully slow"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "It was hot in the cabin. The lights were turned on and off without an announcement and without much time to sleep."
Pros: "Great comfy seats, checking was a breeze and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment and I thought there should have been a little more food. What they did provide was good just a little shy on the quantity. INternational flight with no free bags."
Pros: "No issues, short trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "The food was good and there was a decent variety of things to watch."
Cons: "Having another TSA check at our gate at the last minute just because we were going to New York, the whole process made our boarding time late and our take off time pushed back even though they had 3 hrs to figure it out. The main flight stuardess in charge was rude and kept giving attitude to people when they asked questions because half the people on the flight didn't understand Portuguese. I wasn't allowed to pick my seat on the website so we ended up in a middle row. The person i was traveling with is over 6 ft and could not comfortably fit in the seats. Thankfully no one sat on the end so we were able to spread out between 3 seats. The entire experience made us not want to fly into Portugal again."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Smaller plane, tighter space, no entertainments"
Pros: "I liked that the flight price included a breakfast snack and beverages. I also liked that there was okebty if leg room"
Cons: "I was charged 35 euros for my luggage (the desk attendant told me it was 25 euros) and I was told that if I wanted to claim my baggage during my 24-hour layover I would be charged the baggage price again. I did not receive an option to pay for my luggage when I purchased my ticket and could not find information on TAP's page about luggage fees."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable business class. Food was good. Entertainment system easy to use."
Cons: "They totally screwed up boarding. We waited for about 20-30 minutes in line because they had not worked out the boarding logistics properly. Seat design does not permit an independent adjustment of the foot rest. Crew seemed a little indifferent to our presence; very few smiles."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was terrible."
Cons: "Smooth flight food pilotes"
Pros: "The seats were pretty comfortable and the crew was excellent."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food wasn't good."
Cons: "bad checkin. just trying to get more money for baggage.."
