Cons: "The sky lounge to few bathrooms"
Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"

Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."

Too short time for transited from Munich to Dus. and I missed flight, luggages didn't arrive with my new flight. Very very very bad experience with this booing by this website and I absolutely not accommodate with this web again."
Cons: "I was told there was no meal included because of the fare I paid. I paid $1100.00. I have never experienced this, even on round trip cheaper flights and I fly to Europe every year."
Pros: "The fact that it was indeed a plane that went to europe. that's it."

Pros: "The Cabin Crew was excellent! Very impressed"
Cons: "They had one guy checking passports and he was being trained. Someone asked if there was anyone trying to get on the SF flight and a bunch of us raised our hands, but they didn't do anything. We had to run like OJ to make our flight. Not fun. Then the AC wasn't working while we sat there."
Pros: "Clean, modern place. Professional staff."
Pros: "Overall great and on time !"
Pros: "HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE"
Cons: "Dropped us off in random country for two days with no information and missing 3 days of our trip and losing money on the trip we paid for.

Pros: "Went smoothly and without delays"
Pros: "Great crew, smooth boarding. The dinner was fine, salmon on rice, salad, cheese and desert, of good quality when compared to typical airline food. The breakfast was ok, fruit, muffin and ok cereal bar, too carb-heavy though. The entertainment offered my options. I particularely enjoyed the "Deep-Sleep" relaxation audios which indeed helped me to get some shut-eye during the overnight flight that left the East Coast late afternoon."
Cons: "The comfort in the economy class is mediocre at best. We had more space on the inner-German connection, see next review, than the international flight. The beverage service was skimpy. Flight arrived Dusseldorf on time and then spend 20 minutes on the ground, waiting for a gate, resulting in a scramble to reach our connection."
Pros: "The plane was new, clean and tight. Seats very narrow, no foot room with carry bag under seat on front. On time depart and arrive. Good movies. BUT, where are my bags. Second day in Geneva without clothes or medicines. SwissPort at GVA isn’t helping. They don’t even know where they are: don’t know if they left EWR"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good leg room, pleasant staff"
Cons: "We were late arriving in Prague and then waiting for my luggage only to realise after waiting till the very last luggage THAT my luggage was left in Frankfurt and I didn’t get it til 21.00hrs - totally ruining my plans for my first night in Prague!!!!"
Pros: "Timeliness of departure time Ease of navigating airport to find departure gate"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind Good flight over all"
Pros: "Hot and cold drinks offered welcomingly"

Cons: "Did not like them charging extra for a seat assignment."
Cons: "Not enough time to make connection even though customer service said an hour was enough. Security line was too long. We missed our first flight. Customer svc rep said we had enough time but we weren't the only ones to miss. He made it seem like it was our fault."
Cons: "There was a delay on the takeoff and arrival was taken to another gate and had to take a bus. Not crew or company's fault- but makes traveling a bit slow. Several people had connecting flights..!"
Pros: "Baggage handling, efficiency overall"
Cons: "Small legroom in economy"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, we all had a bottle of water at our seats, we were immediately served drinks and snacks, the meals were really nice (haven't had this in years).

Pros: "all on time"
Cons: "seating very cramped"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew, service was excellent"
Cons: "Once off international flight in Dusseldorf, had to go through passport check prior to transfer onto second flight... One passport check person in line for almost 200 people... We did make our flight, however very stressful for no reason. Lufthansa was amazing, Euro-wings folks... very unhelpful..."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Blasting speakers for announcements, should have served a quick drink"
Pros: "Just a normal trip"
Cons: "My male neighbor was hanging in my seat :( No normal milk for my coffee - only cream and I don't like cream"
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "Lack of good movies"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Competent, friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight"
Pros: "Both of our connecting flights were delayed thereby causing us to miss our final flight to LA. Now we are back in Munich where we started, waiting for a flight tomorrow."
Cons: "That we were told on the flight from Düsseldorf to Frankfort we would make our connecting and after running from Terminal A to Z, and seeing the plane on the Tarmac, we were told we were too late. And then the service associate at the Frankfort Lufthansa was incredibly rude, unhelpful and inaccurate."
Pros: "leg room"
Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
Pros: "Awesome service, delicious food, spacious seats in economy, great friendly staff!! Can't wait for my next flight."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The movies are ok."
Cons: "The seats are terribly not comfortable. I've been in many long flights with other carriers but these by far are the less comfortable seats ever. I tried in April the premium economy and the business class with the same carrier but still I'm disappointed and it doesn't seem that it will get better."
Cons: "The screen was really close got me dizzy when I had to put my seat back to upright position for meal and drinks"
Pros: "Big plane and there is a lower level for toilets that makes it easy for passengers to access and not be close to bathrooms"
Cons: "Movies choices were not current. Haven been on Delta and United, the choices on Lufthansa were not that good."
Pros: "From JFK to London, staff was friendly."
Cons: "From JFK to London, a large number of passengers were not wearing masks properly and the crew did not take action other than a reminder early on. From London to Edinburough, the crew was somewhat rude."
Pros: "All flights were on time. Boarding was well organized."
Cons: "Seats seem more cramped than comparable airlines. Food quality was poor. For one meal they didn't honor my special meal request (they did for the other meal, so they got the request). Flight attendants didn't check back in comfort of passengers."
Cons: "Some form of entertainment"
Pros: "I loved the spacious business class cabins"
Pros: "The pasta was great"
Cons: "Movies with english subtitles"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No leg room Got hit on the knee by a trolley"
Cons: "The seats seem to get smaller and smaller and on the short flights, you do not even get a free drink."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, the boarding process was efficient. Heathrow Terminal 5 was chaotic and there are minimal amenities once you leave the main terminal to reach your gate."
Cons: "This was a codeshare flight operated by British Airways. The plane was an older, uncomfortable 747-400. I'm not sure how old it was, but there were ashtrays affixed to the doors of the bathrooms. It departed and arrived close to an hour late. There were also a number of hyper social passengers onboard who gathered in the aisle or near the exit doors drinking liberally and socializing loudly. While the excellent flight crew tried to manage them, they were undeterred. Food was mediocre. My entertainment screen didn't work, the passenger in front of me fully reclined their seat prior to takeoff (during the delay) and didn't return it to upright until moments before landing. All and all an unpleasant journey."
Pros: "It was short flight therefore no food no entertainment were ok to us"
Pros: "Great personal service from the stewardesses. Excellent food. Plenty of drinks! Even good olive oil."
Pros: "I’m always impressed with the friendly and caring nature of the British Airlines staff. They always go the extra mile (or km) to make sure that you’re happy."
Cons: "The food, but who flys for the meal"
Cons: "Delayed again. 3 flights in a row"
Pros: "the plane landed safely"
Cons: "a lot of confusion between in flight staff and ground staff as to where to go and what to do concerning transfers to ongoing flights, security, tight layover etc . It was like it was everyones first day on the job."
Cons: "One should not have to pay for a drink on that flight. it is too long. If it were less than an hour, I would understand."
Pros: "Polite crew."
Cons: "No power outlets. TV video was shaky. The audio jack did not work. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "on time, attentive staff and it worked as expected.No hassles on luggage"
Cons: "Long delays"
Pros: "I did like how efficiently the transfer was handled to the other plane, and I did like that we got a five pound voucher to get something to eat."
Cons: "I didn't like that, having boarded, and waiting for half hour, we had to leave the plane due to some electrical issue, and had to get another plane, which delayed our trip by three hours. I feel something like that should have been noticed before we boarded."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic -- over an hour in line (and I have priority) and nearly missed the flight. Not providing free water or something is an embarrassment. Money-grubbing has its limits."
Pros: "- Boarded and left on time (both flights) - Crew was excellent - Free wine with dinner even in economy! - 787 is super comfortable and enjoyed the entertainment selection as well"
Cons: "Planes should just be boarded back to front. Also, it seems that boarding just isn't announced at the gate tomorrow."
Pros: "Nice crew, short flight, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Only a small carry-on allowed and one SMALL purse. Also, there is a charge for beverages unless you are in first class."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough (by incredibly low economy seat standards)"
Cons: "Was not alerted that my flight had been canceled and rescheduled (albeit only for another flight 2 hours later, so no huge deal). All I got was a little notification that randomly popped up on the app and didn't seem worth taking seriously, and when I asked the flight attendant about it to double-check, she said it was inaccurate."
Pros: "That the British Airways trip was over."
Cons: "Undue delay, but most especially that the airline's services portrays a belief that passengers travelling round-trip to Africa do not deserve the same service as those travelling between Europe and the U.S., especially for the fare being charged for the shorter distance."
Pros: "Surprised that the food was delicious"
Cons: "Obtaining the boarding pass at Heathrow took time"
Pros: "I got a very good price on this flight attendants were very nice transfer between concourses was much faster than the BA flight magazine lead me to expect"
Cons: "the entertainment screen was fuzzy - visual images unclear on video audio selections were good though length of concourse was ridiculous and lining up for boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Plane was small but reasonably so for the length of the flight. Crew were nice, no issues with the flight.."
Cons: "Flew economy so no food. Definitely no entertainment. First world problems: Not that it's really a big deal, but I sure wish these short haul flights would start installing at least in seat video for flight tracking, news or a few games. Even just an internet connection. It's bad enough you are shoved in there like cattle in a sardine can."
Cons: "We have to pay for even water or tea or coffee. So we stay thirsty."
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Pros: "Short and fast! Great end of my journey"
Cons: "The seats on these flights are poor. As well as being narrow, there are bars on either side that dig in to your sides. My ongoing one hour domestic flight had more comfortable seats. Fod choice poor. Chicken Curry or Cheese/Tomato Lasagna. If I want a vegetarian meal I'll order one beforehand. Give me two meat options. This isn't the first time I've noticed this. Is it cost cutting? Seems like it to me. Not impressed."
Pros: "I left my phone accidentally on the plane when we arrived in Düsseldorf. The crew were willing to go back and pick up my phone for me."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "I fly regularly and British Airways has always been one of my favorite airlines. But this past flight, they charged for beverages. Even water and soda which on even the cheapest airlines are free. I understand it was a short flight, but charging for non alcoholic drinks is ridiculous. Last time I flew the same flight, they gave free everything including wine. Pretty disappointed."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late"
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed uninterested in passengers. Hot food was honestly disgusting and there were no snacks other than a sugary chocolate bar"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Pros: "The snack provided onboard was tasty. The flight attendants took their job seriously."
Cons: "Southwest Airlines style seating with a foldable tray table over a middle seat. Sold as a business class cabin at a high price for an hour and a half flight but we left feeling ripped off. No boarding order and overall chaos boarding. I feel that for the price and being advertised as business class I was taken for a ride so to speak, and not in a good way. This would not qualify as business class on any other airline irregardless of how short the leg was."
Cons: "The "complimentary" drinks weren't complimentary, as you had to pay for them"
Pros: "When I traveled Lax to Denmark via London on July.13. At that time from London to Copenhagen crews only sale the food and drinks. My group tour customers were thirsty and they had to take some pills. so they asked just cup of water, but the crews did not provide even a cup of water . That time was dinner time so every people was so hungry too. And also yesterday my another tour customer was so hungry. I understand you not served food at time. but just serve them a snack or juice . Because time jet lag make them more tired and hungry. I was worked at the Korean air line before, so I understand the stewardess should do only follow the regulations. But just serve some water to hungry and tired passengers."

Pros: "Nice plane, and quick flight to Heathrow from Glasgow. The plane had to leave late due to weather but the pilot kept passengers informed and made up time in the air so we were only 15 minutes late. The crew was available to discuss implications for connections."
Cons: "No entertainment options but this was a small plane and quick flight, so I didn't expect anything."
Pros: "Crew good friendly service."
Cons: "Passport control 1 hr and 30 minutes!"
Cons: "Why can't Germany load planes from concourse ramps instead of busing and so many stairs. Frankfurt airport is so poorly designed and how much of my ticket is for buses and bus drivers, etc."
Pros: "Big airplane 747. O"
Cons: "Bring more than 30mind sitting on the plane waiting for a slot to take off despite boarding on time"
Pros: "Mobility assistance was great help after reaching to Phoenix, USA. Staff and crew members were very helpful."
Cons: "Overcharged for baggage as the BA online baggage payment system was not working."
Pros: "Flight was great really. I appreciated that a vegetarian option was standard since I could not choose a meal - especially since i got on flight through standby. All BA personnel on ground and on plane super nice."

Pros: "New plane, nice interiors of the plane"

Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "I was able to finish a movie I started on a different flight and found an additional enjoyable movie to watch."
Cons: "The airplane was uncomfortably hot. The flight attendant apologized and said it would cool off at cruising altitude. It never cooled off. The flight was full and very crowded. I was in the last boarding group even though my seat was in row 17. They required me to check my carryon due to space."
Cons: "traffic made lose this flight. Had to change flights. Can not get connection flights with one hour difference between connections"

Cons: "Check in for AA at DCA was terrible. Everything else was great."
Pros: "ON TIME AND VERY SMOOTH. EVEN EARLY! THANKS!"
Cons: "Very high decibel high pitched noise from engines as we taxied to gate in PHL. VERY annoying. Lasted over 5 minutes. ALSO, i didnt need to print out own boarding passes. You could fix your website check in px."
Pros: "Nice amount of leg room!!!"
Cons: "It was advertised that one can see entertainment through WIFi, but from my iPad, i can't connect to this WiFi. I tried several times until I just gave up."

Cons: "nothing to complain about--"
Pros: "Friendly people, seemingly short flight, as I slept part of the way. A lot quicker than driving from upstate New York."

Cons: "TAP does not check your bags all the way through if you are having a layover. This makes NO SENSE and requires that you retrieve your luggage from baggage claim, and then check in once more and then another trip through security once again! This never happens in the US - one of the few things we get right. Also, I have never had to board a plan from the tarmac since 1970 in the US - why do we have to always wait for and take buses from our check in gate out to the flight line? And how is this ever considered, "Premium Boarding?" It's like a cattle car. Fix these things and I will sing the praises of TAP forever."
Pros: "Tap crew is very nice."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "Good crew. No crying or screaming children is always good. Dinner was decent & nice that it comes with a glass of wine if you wish."
Cons: "Packed in a sardine can for 9 hours is not fun. Being bussed out to a remote location for a wide bodied plane is crazy. At least at ORD we had a gate."
Pros: "Very happy with the service and seat comfort. Thank you"
Pros: "All was well from checking in to baggage claim."
Cons: "A delay of about 20 mins"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "The toilet sinks were clogged and dirty."
Cons: "We had to pay $120 for a checked bag because it “weighed too much”. The lady at the check in counter said they were weighing everyone’s at the gate so there was no way to get around it This however was a lie and they were not checking weight and people got on without having to pay the outrageous fee"
Pros: "The flight was fine no problem"
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The boarding crew and gate staff where rude."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Long day. Did not inform you of what was going on. Changed gated not very clear."
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."
Pros: "On this prop plane, the takeoff and landing was exceptionally smooth. Again, the crew gave outstanding service."
Cons: "All was perfect! Thank you."
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: "I travel for pleasure a lot and this was my first time flying TAP Portugal. I flew from LIS to MAD and the crew were overall more friendly and smiling than on US domestic flights. The plane was clean and bright. I did not notice if the seats recline. I will be using them for short flights throughout Europe when I return for visit."
Cons: "Flight was so short they rushed us eating the cookie and only water was served that I could tell. Also, TAP has their own boarding check-in wing of Lisbon airport. It was not clearly marked and Eropean arrows pointing up could mean to continue forward, as well as go to upper floors."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "That I had to pay for my check in bag on my return trip. Was told the ticket I booked didn't include check in bags. Whan my trip going to Portugal on Azores Airlines did. Someone shout step in and change this practice. Very confusing for the traveler"
Pros: "Seats were Comfortable"
Pros: "Entertainment and seat space were great."
Cons: "They somehow managed to lose the entire flights luggage"
Pros: "When we landed at the destination."
Cons: "Gate checked 90% of the carry on luggage, but not with an official tag, just some guy scribbling on tags before the bus. Boarding was a fiasco: disorderly lines just to pile into a bus and shuttle to plane. Comfort!? Ha. I'm 5'8" short and my knees were digging into the seats in front of me. The new seats are hard as a rock and don't recline. Cramped is an understatement. The tray table is literally the same size as the tray itself. Did TAP build a mock up of this before production?!? You get to hold your drink and put your silverware in your lap while you eat. Food was too hot to open foil, and once opened was mediocre at best. Entertainment?!? Literally nonexistent. Well actually in the fancy seats beyond economy there is a little slot to attach a phone or tablet on the back of the seat. So your entertainment is whatever you brought. I guess the touchscreen/on demand entertainment I remember from the early 2000's is too high tech for TAP."
Pros: "Great experience overall. The food was good and great selection of movies and TV shows."
Pros: "Great flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Didn’t connect to entertainment didnt"
Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"
Cons: "Tap changed the times on my original flight from Portugal to Rome then changed the times from my first flight from Boston to Portugal making it impossible to connect from Portugal to Rome.both flights were tap airlines. We were charged 462.00 extra to take the next flight out 3hours later. We were charged twice for the same flight from Portugal to Rome. It was not our fault that we could not connect in Portugal, every other airlines would make resonable accommodations with out any extra charge. We both feel cheated by tap airlines and it made our vacation very stressful trying to resolve the double charge. It has not been resolved as of yet and we our very disappointed on how we were treated. can’t get anything other than the blame being passed around."
Cons: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."
Cons: "Had to check 2 of our luggages, and it cost $95 per piece. Never flown an airline where I had to pay more than $50 per piece. Also carryon has to be less than 8 kg. Our small luggage that we had to check never had any problems with any other airlines about being a carryon but since it was over 8 kg, it had to be checked. Took a 7.5 hour flight and the entertainment screen was not working for anyone, as the system was broken. Will not be flying with airline ever again."
Cons: "Flight got canceled and delayed, staffs very mean and unprofessional"
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential compared to the bad."
Cons: "My wife and I arrived to the airport for our honeymoon extremely excited. We had been saving for our trip to Italy for months, and we were finally going to get things started. Everything fell apart when we went to check in and we were told that my wife couldn’t use her ticket because she had changed her last name. We were told that there was no way that the name on the ticket could be changed because of TSA regulations. Of course, we were also told that we could have changed the name had we purchased a more expensive ticket. In other words, we were lied to and told the issue was regulation, when really they wouldn’t help us because we couldn’t afford a more expensive ticket. The only help we were given was the pleasure of paying over $1,500 more to get my wife on the flight. I am in the process of trying to get this refunded, but as of now we have paid twice for my wife to fly, and neither ticket has been refunded. We may have accidentally broken a rule, but the only function that rule seems to have is to make us pay twice for the same seat. As of now, I would never fly this airline again, and I would warn everyone away from it. I will update this post if TAP does the right thing by two honeymooners."
Pros: "car rental service SIXT"
Cons: "having to check bags that we didn't on the way to Faro was annoying long line at entry (my husband and I used EU) but they made my mom and sister go in the other longer line this time we had to run for connecting flight and my mother is elderly"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything but specially the fact that there was no Business class but tickets Were sold and in the end not even assigned seats. No previous info or whatsoever ... this company is becoming worst than a low cost ... well much worst !!!"
Pros: "Food, seats, flight attendants & in flight entertainment were all very good."
Pros: "Easy trip from London"
Cons: "Not sure what was in the sandwich."
Pros: "Great service, great comfort, great food and early arrival"
Cons: "The service was below average, nobody seems to be eager to assist. The food that was offered on the flight was below expectations. The company should work on improving customer care"
Pros: "Food was interesting and pretty good. Seats were okay. We were happy we choose tap"
Cons: "We never saw a crew member smile. They verged on being surley. From the time we boarded they were yawning. I do mean all of them were acting uninterested in doing their jobs."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room between you and the seat in front of you. Huge plane. Very nice."
Cons: "My video screen did not have English available"
Cons: "Flight Washington late."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight, losted the baggage and couldn't help to resolve the problem. They also lied about the flight they wanted to replace to solve the problem which even didn't exist in their company. So, I will never ever take the flight from this compound again."
Pros: "I got a sandwich. Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Late flight, and my life flashed before my eyes on the landing."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was a n extensive selection of great movies to choose from."

Pros: "Crew was welcoming and service was great!"
Pros: "The plane was really comfortable and clean with plenty of legroom, and the staff friendly."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, pleasent stewardesses, good tv's/entertainment options."
Cons: "We flew out of Rome. Management at Rome airport told us their emplyee(s) were drunk! Unsafe flight! NEVER USE THIS AIRLINE- YOURE PUTTING YOUR LIFE AT RISK!"
Cons: "Oph, I wish I had better things to say about this airline! The person who signed us in for our first flight did so as a "no show" (we didn't know this at the time). That flight was delayed (they didn't have enough room in the plane for luggage and were scrambling to put things below). Once we arrived in at our second location, we sprinted through the airport but arrived at our gate with 10 minutes to spare only to be told that the entire flight was full and that we were not able to board. We asked- how this was possible? We are here on time, we have booked our tickets months ahead of time, and there is no one else here at the gate... it made absolutely no sense. All the staff people did was shrug their shoulders and said that they couldn't help us and that we had to go to the transfer station. My friend and I were upset- by missing our flight we were losing our last night in Barcelona, seeing our friends, etc. before heading back to the United States. Once we got to the transfer station, we were even more confused and upset however, because the staff person there told us that in fact our seats were available and that there was no reason why were not allowed on the flight. However, she shrugged her shoulders and told her that there was nothing that she could do. She offered us a $10 meal card, booked us for the next flight 3 hours later (which put us in Barcelona late at night, way too late to see the city or our friends), and offered us absolutely no help in getting a refund. We asked to see the supervisor and after waiting another half an hour he came out and told us the story about how the staff person in Marrakesh put us as "no shows." This was a complete system failure, however he offered us no refund, no support, beyond telling us to go on the website and filling out a form. Once we got internet, we tried to get to the form- link broken. We called the help line, and after waiting another 20 minutes, we got connected to a woman who said that she couldn't help us- we had to go to the transfer service desk and fill out a paper form there or the electronic contact form. It seemed that every person had been well trained in how to pass clients from one system to another, to see if we would get too tired to file our complaints. No one has taken responsibility for this abysmal failure of the system, no one has apologized, and no one has offered any reimbursement beyond a meal ticket. I highly recommended that people pay an extra $20 for an airline where people are properly trained in how to use their computer systems, where they won't lie to your face, and where they may have a system where complaints and be properly filed and responded to. I have no idea how TAP Portugal is still in business."
Pros: "The flight left later than expected because the boarding process didn't start till 5 minutes after the scheduled departure time. The service on the aircraft was very nice though"
Pros: "The food was delicious"

Pros: "Had all the wine I could drink."
Cons: "The flight was too late for our connections."
Pros: "Staff and fact that flight was 45mins shorter"
Cons: "CHeck in at Lisbon was messy as they made us get back into a passport control line at the gate even though Everton was already seated. Suggest you do this before we get to the gate. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "I liked the individual blankets, pillow and headphones on the chairs."
Cons: "We were told that the flight had wifi and it didnt. The video units on back of seats were okay- not great. The audio on the headphones was not good at all."
