Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."

Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."

Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"
Cons: "Be more professional"

Pros: "Quality aircrafts and entertainment."
Cons: "Service and helpfulness of attendants."
Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"
Cons: "Flight attendants should care the passengers and provide the best service. Otherwise there is no use paying expensive flight tickets and travelling on Qatar"
Pros: "The Flight from Arusha was so convenient in the timing and it was perfect and on-time."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was really amazing."
Cons: "Wifi not working- huge disappointment. Seats a bit hard on A350. The overhead bins on the inside suitable only for tall people."
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "i did not like the baggage policy for cabin baggage, where i am not allowed to carry my personal item and a carry on separately."
Pros: "From the exceptional lounges to the cleanliness of the plane, the food options in business class and the flight attendants , Qatar Airways was excellent"
Cons: "The only issue was the movie options for the Hollywood options. There should have been more newer releases for such a long flight."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant service. Some of the best airline food in the world."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Pros: "The THOUGHT it would be a nice flight than usual from Asia to the USA, but it wasn't. Doha Airport was an interesting stop early I'm the morning"
Cons: "No outlets on either flight or in the airport so can't use electrics for almost the entire trip. The seats are extremely narrow to the point out of unprobabability to have your own space even if sitting next to regular build person. Food was only ok and service was below average with trash often not collected and needing to request water etc"
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Cons: "this time food was not that good which when traveled before."
Pros: "Qatar personal ground services they did the best they could in a difficult environment such as GVA airport. Cabin Crew FABULOUS Quality of space GOOD Food EXCELLENT Looking forward in flying again with QATAR AIRWAYS Thanks Tony Manias"
Cons: "Although for some technical reasons the flight was considerably delayed, there was no action taken either by Qatar Airways or Geneva airport authorities to make the waiting more confortable!! The passengers of economy class and business class were all stacked in the same space (it looked more of a hangar...) Access to this space was only possible by stairs (No elevator - No escalator !!) No drinks offered, not enough chairs to sit and wait......etc The main blame is to put on Geneva Airport Authorities. This airport is a total mess From the moment one arrives at the airport area (access - parking - ..) till the moment of boarding... It should be boycotted by major and quality companies such as Qatar Airways and many others."
Pros: "The Qatar Airways price."
Cons: "Meals & Snacks Meals served on board and in the lounges need improvement."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and crew"
Cons: "The plain was very old."
Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."

Pros: "After hearing our complaint, the Transfer desk staff was friendly and helpful and solved the situation in our favour. We"

We were then informed that we were put on the following flight arriving after midnight at our destination. Our compensation was going to be 250 USD and a free entry to the lounge. What a way to start our holidays."

Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."

Pros: "Overall the flight experience was very good"
Cons: "I was soooo upset that the check in person when I was about to board the plane couldn't help me to change the seat number. Why is so Hard? Just switch numbers with other people and tell them the changes. US flight do that why Turkish flight doesn't!! Most of people fly alone, its that easy."
Pros: "Good crew and friendly"
Cons: "Food was not good for lunch as if it was spoiled. I knew two others that did not eat I am 6.0 and seats were tight but that is common across all airlines"
Pros: "Nice flight crew"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Rear bathroom cleanness."
Pros: "Price of ticket Clean bathrooms"
Cons: "I was sitting next to toddlers, who were crying and hyper. I think they should assign special section for parents with kids under 5. Felt sick after dinner with aubergine rice and mince meat. Food was not optimum quality. Crew was good but some could smile some more! Seats were stained and old, but reasonably comfy."
Pros: "The crew were generally hospitable and courteous though not well informed. The entertainment choices were varied and enough. The meals were warm. Turbulence was well managed by crew and pilot. The toilets were clean."
Cons: "Flight was late, leaving less time to board connecting flight. The blanket was too small. The food and wine were below standards. The leg rests were absent and not enough room to spread legs. The basket in front too narrow and tight to put in anything. The charging unit for computer/mobile did not function. No clear instructions or help to board next connecting flight either through system or crew."
Cons: "Good food"
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Pros: "Film selection, boarding process, amenities bag"
Cons: "Dessert very boring. Legspace seemed smaller than last experience on TK"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Took too long. Build a transporter!"
Pros: "As usually, the crew, good, entertainment, and comfort were all marvelous."
Cons: "The boarding process was slower than normal though it seemed out of control of the Turkish Airlines staff."
Pros: "I upgraded to business class at a somewhat reasonable fare ($999.00) additional. Experience was much better than in Economy."
Cons: "The flight left early, without me. Instead of beginning boarding at the time printed on my ticket, like every other airline, boarding was completed and closed fifteen minutes before my ticket said they would start, so even though I was eight minutes early I was actually seven minutes too late. Turkish Airlines service desk took the evidence (my ticket) and then refused to rebook me, forcing me to pay $600 for a new flight and for a visa to Turkey just so I could exit through security to book & pay for it. They will not be getting any more of my business in the future!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind, but the food was superb (not what I've experienced in the past on other flights). Those gift packs of a toothbrush/slippers/ eye mask was also so wonderful! That eye mask and ear plugs saved me during the flight and during my entire trip"
Cons: "While we took off/ landed softly, I felt that the overall noise that the plane had while in flight was loud, almost too loud to fall asleep without headphones."
Pros: "pleasant flight attendants good food food always available which is nice for 11+ hour flight superb selection of movies"
Cons: "Turkish Air desk at airport gave us incorrect information that nearly made us miss our flight"
Pros: "One of the best airlines over the world"
Pros: "the flight was less then an hour"
Cons: "Crew was ok"
Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."
Pros: "This had to have been the best flight I ever had the attendents cater to you every need"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No kosher as ordered"
Cons: "Boarding process in Istanbul was very difficult. 5 security checks just getting from the plane from Brussels to our gate is excessive and time consuming. Very little organization at the gate as well. Not smooth at all."
Pros: "Food and entertainment options are good"
Cons: "You broke my suitcase"
Cons: "Good floght"
Pros: "The meal was good and fulfilling The cabin crew dressed like a chef is a nice and fun thing."
Cons: "Slow boarding to the plane, passengers don't respect the different boarding class rule and the staff was not enforcing it. Passengers were standing in the plane after it landed but while it was still driving on the runway and they were opening the overhead luggage compartments risking other passengers health with falling luggage. Also since passengers were standing and the plane was driving on the runway, they were not stable and moving sideways and one of them hit a sitting passenger in the head by mistake. The on-flight entertainment system didn't work from FRA to IST The staff did not do a safety check (check if seat belts on all passengers, seats are in upright position) prior to the plane flying Overall I flew with them 4 times (2 way ticket, with connection flights) and all flights were late to depart and eventually arrive late."
Pros: "The speed in which the aircraft was boarded and the refreshments given quickly"
Cons: "The lack of order and last minute information not being given"
Cons: "Because of the coup in Turkey, I had to cancel my flight. I'm still trying to get my partial reimbursement. It been two weeks!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The cup holder on my seat was broken and wouldn't stay up... So minor. Other than that, we had a very pleasant flight in TA."
Pros: "Crew were excellent making everyone comfortable in a long flight."
Cons: "Nothing arrived on time even though it departed late"
Pros: "Waiting room is too small I guess til boarding. And need wifi."
Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."
Pros: "It met and exceeded some expectations. I guess part of it was having read so many reviews about other people's bags not making it. I am glad all my bags arrived in one piece"
Cons: "Wish there were better snack options, especially considering how long the flight was"
Pros: "The employees were kind and helpful to the weary travelers. They served with a smile."
Pros: "It was to hot on the plane , I told them 3 times and still nothing chaged .... I don't think I fill fly with them on the future."
Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"
Cons: "No entertainment on board. Food served was rather bland. Seats weren't very comfortable."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "The crew was very rude and was not helpful at all."
Cons: "There was less leg room on the plane I took from Riyadh to Istanbul. I'm 6'4", and my knees are right against the seat in front of me. That's why I rated comfort as only okay."
Pros: "The inflight service (food, attendants, space, entertainment) and the cabin were quite good."
Cons: "The Ataturk Airport that goes with Turkish international flights is a big mess, though. A lot of delays (on air before landing, on the ground before exiting the plane, one hour in the airport bus that wouId take us to the plane from the airport). Two of my colleagues who travelled the same route one and two days earlier than me had their luggage brought to them 4 days later. I will try to avoid Turkish in the future."
Pros: "food, movie options, bathrooms were big, had lotion, and Turkish cologne."
Cons: "Tv wasn't user friendly, hard to navigate, they didn't offer enough water on between meals, eggs were very disgusting.."
Pros: "Crew was professional and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was narrow for business class."
Pros: "quality of plane"
Cons: "check in takes 30 minutes since my visa was in old passport"
Cons: "The video screen freaked up a lot and I was unable to watch movies listen to music for the better part of the 11 hour flight. I noticed other passengers had the same problem."
Pros: "Really friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and entertainment screen."
Cons: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed due to technical problems. Then it was moved up 40 min without enough time to have someone get back for boarding. Barely made the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "The layover time was too close for FRA. By the time everyone deplaned and was shuttled to the terminal by a bus it was already my boarding time. I had to rush through the passport control feeling nervous The seat pitch of the flight was narrow. I could not use my laptop once the person in front of me reclined."
Cons: "Extremely unfriendly staff at check-in. Boarding was chaos."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "The crew was attentive"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for an hour."
Pros: "Loved the food and drink service."
Cons: "Did not like how far back the seat in front of me went. Causes a cramped ride."
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good. Pilot kept good communication with passengers. Some of the inflight crew were nice and willing to help"

Cons: "no boarding zones. boarding was a free for all."
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was good! Boarding was fast and organized!"

Cons: "bus to the airplane was too warm and had to wait 10 minutes before actually letting us off"
Pros: "I had to change my flight times three times, and each time they charged me less than 30 dollars (for taxes) and the wait times on the phone were super fast. It was shocking to not lose hundreds of dollars for life happening and needing to change my flight. AND!! I got a free upgrade to premium economy for free!"
Pros: "I like the price of the ticket ( thanks to KAYAK), the service on board was very good, everything on time and of course very convenient connection between Tampa and Frankfurt to fly to the further airports in Europe. Safety, security and service in good price. It is my favorite airline and rout."
Pros: "We liked mostly the crew, they were helpful, polite and efficient .entretaiment kept us distract during the long fly . Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "The seats are very close to each other . The plane was taxing for a long time before or has a gate available ."
Pros: "I am always amazed how Lufthansa gets it right."
Cons: "Legroom was tide. When the person in front of you put their seat down you feel like ham in a sandwich."
Cons: "My bag was lost, exsept close I lost life-saving drags like insulin and other. I not live in Finland and don’t have there my medical record that can go in farmasy without medical prescription to buy medicin. Today is my 70 years burthday. This is a good present to celebrate. Thank you"

Cons: "The second meal was a bit skimpy and not so tasty."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "Great crew, great flight, food and drinks was awesome"

Pros: "Was great,on time,no issues,they send me the flight connection gate on my email.*****"
Cons: "Leg space"
Pros: "Our family was able to all sit together, even though we were not able to select our seats."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats when booking the flight, but they put us all t"
Cons: "The boarding procedure was unorganized and extremely inefficient. The family sitting in the row across from us had two unparented and very loud children who were disruptive for the entire 10 hour flight. Even on landing the child was not wearing a seat belt. The woman got up to get her stuff out of the overhead compartment even though we were told to stay seated. At no point did any of the crew members do anything in regards to this family and their disruptive actions."
Pros: "The trip from frankfurt to boston was amazin"
Cons: "The plane from beirut ti frabkfurt was old. No entertainment on board, no screens"
Cons: "For people who are going frequently to the US because of the small airplane from FRA_TLV A321 It is not worth for me buying Primer Economy since it is mixed and in British it is all the wayTLV-PHL 2 airplanes with primer economy"
Cons: "Hickups in entertainment screens. Seats seem te be smaller again Rows without windows"
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Cons: "Had difficulty walking up and down stairs to plane."
Pros: "Crew on board were excellent."
Cons: "There was a 40 minute delay in the Athens airport, which precipitated a race to catch the connection in Munich to Boston. Also, the food was below par. Nothing you'd get from the old Lufthansa..."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight. Flight crew was amazing. Comfortable seats and lighting for an overnight flight. Food was good and stuffing."
Cons: "Headsets were collected half hour before landing (minor issue). Except for the recommendations for this flight, movie highlights were well hidden in the entertainment system."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Great service across the board! Wonderful, experienced staff!"
Cons: "Seat space was inadequate. My shoulders are 4 inches wider than the seat space including both shared arm rests."
Cons: "This was a very tight confection. When selling international connections the layover needs to allow enough time to exit the plane, cross a huge airport and go through passport control. Boarding starts early and this connection was barely enough time."
Pros: "Great overall experience oafter some years of absence using other major carriers"
Cons: "All bathroom downstairs, crammed stairs long long waiting , no room to wait for your turn"
Cons: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hrs"
Cons: "I did not go because i canceled my flight and am still waiting for my refund since 23 May. I will probably never use Kayak again. Not happy... far from satisfied. ~AC"
Cons: "No checjed in luggage allowed - i did not know that when i bought it!"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, good blankets and lighting. Perfect for what I needed."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew. Delicious food"
Cons: "Price to bump up to next economy level was prohibitive"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Good take off and landing. Crew was thoughtful and polite."
Cons: "Could improve on boarding. Perhaps start with the people that have seats in the back of the plane first to make it easier to board and not block the aisles, instead of having everyone board at once. Also need more comfortable seats."
Cons: "Seats are hard"
Pros: "Delays. Very hard to rebook. Crew was inattentive. No chargers or TVs. Little overhead bin space. Terrible flight."
Cons: "Fix everything mentioned above"
Cons: "Business class - never offered food or drink for entire flight."
Pros: "Plane had three delays. Apparently American mechanics are not allowed to strike so they have these fake or very slow mechanical issues."
Cons: "Be on time. We missed our overseas connection and had to buy new tickets to Italy"
Pros: "Good seating and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Board in reverse order so the back of the plane gets filled first"
Pros: "It was an average flight"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hrs and it wasn't due to weather"
Pros: "the plane looked new and clean"
Cons: "the leg space"
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "The only entertainment was streaming movies via your own device. Not the end of the world but most people have come to expect having personal video monitors. Delta is adding them but AA is taking away."
Cons: "Terrible rough landing for no reason"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Cons: "The space between seats is very short!!"
Pros: "Crew was polite and respectful"
Cons: "Communication was irregular, a meal was promised that was never delivered, delay on tarmac handled poorly"
Cons: "LATE ! ! ! LATE ! ! ! And “AA” has a really good reputation ... so pretty bummed out ... the apologized ... and did what hey could to make the flight more pleasant ... but i’m here for my daughter who’s having surgery in the morning and .. it’s now 0107 and we should have been here at 2356 ... and we are all tired"
Cons: "Flight got Delayed but they were efficient enough to get an alternate flight as fast as possible"
Pros: "FUE OPERADO POR AMERICAN AIRLINES Y EL VUELO DESDE TAMPA DESPEGO TARDE Y PERDIMOS LA CONEXION A JAPON TODO EL DIA EN EL AEROPUERTO SOLO HASTA EL DIA 21 VAMOS A SALIR DE LOS ANGELES A TOKIO SI TENEMOS ALGO DE SUERTE MUY MALO EN VERDAD NOS ENTIMOS ENGAÑADOS"
Pros: "Average. Expectation for US airlines are so low this flight score average."
Pros: "I liked the way the AA gate supervisor too charge of the problem and solved it, with great deal of personal imvolvement and follow up. Also check-in crew was very much the best. I would say that AA showed the best of passages care to me. Truly outstanding."
Cons: "Because of a mixup, though not of AA doing, I was literally forgotten at the gate. However, AA personnel showed the very best of can-do attitude and got me home for Thanksgiving. I am very proud of everyone working at AA at the TPA airport."
Pros: "Quiet clean bathroom good layover time"
Cons: "lost time and monies...and opportunities."
Pros: "If you are not in first class, they treat you like dirt."
Cons: "I saw the whole plane packed in the back with 6 people in a row, when the middle of the plane has plenty of empty seats. It seems that American Airlines will pack people who don't pay for choice of seats in the back. Distasteful practice."
Pros: "Food was okay.."
Cons: "Had a bulk head seat that turned out to be not one."
Pros: "Timely I have no complaints. The flight went well."
Cons: "Timely I have no complaints. The flight went well."
Cons: "Horrible long delays."
Pros: "The only good thing about the flight is that it was nonstop."
Cons: "This four-hour flight had no movie and no seatback entertainment system. It didn't even offer SiriusXM to listen to. How old exactly was this plane?!"
Pros: "Good air and great stewardesses"
Pros: "otherwise ok"
Cons: "2hr delay"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."
Pros: "Delayed 2 hours out of charlotte. Missed flight to Madrid. Newark people are rude"
Cons: "Look above"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Cons: "Too many delays Seats too cramped Too much crowding at boarding ...need a single file roped off lines for boarding passengers by group numbers so there would be less shoving, K coming people down, and stepping on feet."
Pros: "Attentive staff, easy boarding"
Cons: "AA got rid of the video screens on the chair in front of you; poor snack selection"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."
Pros: "Everything went fairly seamlessly despite having a pacted plane."
Pros: "Comfort and quick boarding"
Cons: "Flight attendants were a bit dry and less than over zealous. Connecting gate in Charlotte was really far from where we landed. I had little time to get there."
Pros: "Boarding process was quick and staff was decent."
Cons: "Tiny seats, everyone was uncomfortable because of this. No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "I flew first class. Philadelphia airport is horrendous. I chose to fly first class to avoid lines and make flying by my lonesome go more smoothly. There are no special lines for first class there are absolutely no perks to flying first class out of Philly. The first class flight attendant was rude. They ran out of hot food by the time they got to me so I was served yogurt ... I don't eat yogurt. I waited 40 minutes for my luggage to arrive at baggage claim. The flight to Philadelphia from Tampa was a good experience. They had first class lines. The airport was cleaner. The flight attendant Steve, was kind and professional. I was served a hot lunch. I'm a diabetic and when my blood sugar went low he got me orange juice quickly. I waited maybe 10 minutes for luggage at baggage claim. However with the horrific experience in Philadlephia I may never fly American again. Definitely will never fly out of Philadelphia again. I was told by the woman who I sat next to on the way home that she hates American and usually flys Delta for her business trips."
Cons: "AVOID FLYING OUT OF PHILADELPHIA!!!"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "NEVER GOT THE TICKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Small seats, no consideration for disabled travelers. Pretzels suck. One 30 min tv show on 2.5 hour flight. No bathroom for handicap. Cheap airfare is the only reason I fly American. One attendant asked me, with attitude, if I was going to get off the plane...before realizing I can't physically walk. Her face turned white as a ghost when she realized what she had said and how she had said it."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Check in was good."
Cons: "Hate paying for bags. It's silly."
Pros: "Departure on time, arriving on time. Great flight"
Pros: "comfortable seating"
Cons: "For the crew members not to speak so loudly in the back while people are sleeping on overnight flights. If the entertainment is going to be through an App on your person devices charging outlets should be available."
Pros: "I like the comfort and the cheap prices of the fear rates"
Cons: "American cancelled flight after all day wait because they could not find a first officer."
Cons: "Not good my carry on bag they send it under and they said I get it at my final destination"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled I am told due to lack of crew. What the heck??? It took me all day to get home waiting on standby flights."
Pros: "TAP always has great team members and crew. They are polite, professional and helpful. The flight itself is comfortable and relaxing; very enjoyable."
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: "I liked the food"
Cons: "1 hour delay Duden to luggages!"
Pros: "Crew was great and seats had footrests."
Cons: "Very old plane with outdated entertainment system and no power outlets. Had to take bus to plane, we repeatedly lined up for boarding only to have our flight delayed again and again."
Cons: "More newer movies and better main course."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster that took an extra 30 min"
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"
Cons: "The check in process was chaotic and slow. At one point there was one woman checking in 3 lines of people for 45 mins before help arrived"
Cons: "Too late with delay"
Pros: "Great Crew nice plane"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, not enough space for carry on, due to luggage cost is way overpriced, as well as seats too expensive"
Pros: "Great crew and good seat with enough space."
Cons: "Overall is fine !!!"
Pros: "Plane was clean & crew were kind"
Pros: "clean and fast"
Cons: "use airport finger in Lisbon airport"
Pros: "We were lucky that the flight was not full, more space and comfort. Our special meals ordered in advance were provided how ever a little limited Flight was generally smooth and we arrived earlier than scheduled even though we have left later than scheduled. Great service. New, Clean and comfortable aircraft The process while in transit at Lomé was fast and simple."
Cons: "The fasten seatbelt was constantantly on (not only while in turbulence) Though we had two full rows available for us, the seat handles could not be lifted; hence the full row could not be utilized... No entertainment at all. This can be advised ahead for you to come with adequate tablet."
Cons: "Paid thousands of dollars for this trip and my luggage is missing as tap Portugal convinently lost it."
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: "Our tickets were economy class Y for all of our flights, and we each checked a bag free on the outbound trip. But, returning we had to pay 170 euros for our 2 checked (1 each) bags. TAP (Air Portugal) in Toulouse said our outbound flights were "Basic" fares while our return flights were "Discounted" fares. Discounted fares do not include checked bags while Basic fares include 1 free checked bag. We paid $3,106.36 for the round trip for both of us, which hardly seems like a discounted fare, before paying an additional 170 euros on the return flight. I will be looking into filing a Class Action suit trying to recover all overcharges on behalf of all passengers."
Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"
Cons: "They had us inside the airplane for 1.5 hours. We understand there was a bad weather but we could get on board when they are ready to depart. It is not nice to be 1.5 hours plus 8 hours traveling"
Cons: "Flight was canceled which was out of their control. Unfortunately, what wasn’t out of their control was the amount of people handling the rebooking. One person was handling alternate flights. I was the 6th person in line (which was the time equivalent of an hour and half wait. I missed all possible reroutes due to flights closing. The customer service of tap airlines is severely lacking"
Pros: "Nice and clean aircraft, snack on the way to Lisbon"
Cons: "Cramped seats (very),"
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."
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."
Cons: "My round trip ticket was purchased and in the confirmation it stated that it included one free checked bag. i also went online to reserve a window seat which cost 12.95. When I got to the airport I was told I had to pay 110 for my one checked bag as well as they had moved me to an aisle seat. Basically scammed me out of 122.95. I have complained with ygthe airline and if it is not resolved I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "Flight to LIS was delayed 2.5 hours, missed BCN flight. I was given a new flight, but boardng pass was canceled at gate. I'm stranded!"
Pros: "Best all around airline I've been on!!!"
Pros: "They gave us good snacks. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "We were delayed 1.5 hours. Had to sprint and almost missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed very unorganized. The people and police that were working weren't friendly at all."
Cons: "Our flight was DCA to Boston then to Lisbon, with similar return. Our return flight into Boston arrived early enough to allow us to get an earlier flight home but TAP customer service wasn't open until after the earlier flight departed. Also, Jet Blue, the domestic carrier, could not change our flight because it was booked through TAP."
Pros: "Fast boarding. TAP crew was nice as always."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing cold, all 8 hours. There seems to be no balance for the cabin's temperature in these long flights. Make sure you have a jacket and a blanket."
Pros: "Timeliness of check-in and the flight."
Pros: "It was all ok"
Cons: "I took 3 TAP flights while in Europe, and they were always late!"
Pros: "It is comparatively inexpensive for business class."
Cons: "You get what you pay for! Boarding was very disorganized. Lot of standing around for no good reason. Food and drink service was mediocre -- they ran out of stuff."
Pros: "everything was great"
Cons: "they had some video problems early in the flight but had it fixed about a third into the flight"
Pros: "Food was excellent, and the cabin crew extremely nice and attentive. Amenities kit was adorable too!"
Cons: "We were in first class, and no On Demand IFE!!! You do have a personal screen in the seatback, but they only play continual loop movies. For us, we started with one movie, but then due to technical difficulties, the crew had to reboot the entire system. So once it was back up and running, they switched the movie. And even that one didn't play through....apparently, at some point they determine its "bedtime" and turn off the IFE!! Crazy in this day and age!!! Also, the plane is old and REALLY worn. Lots of dirt, tired seats, yucky bathrooms, etc. This plane needs an overhaul!! No storage anywhere in the seats either, which was shocking. And the angle lay flat seats are certainly fantastic in comparison to Coach seats, but still hard to sleep and get comfortable."
Pros: "Absoulty nothing"
Cons: "Your lack of verification of someone at your gate compelling my wife to pay in cash instead of accepting the reservation. Uouj could snd should. Have call security And your gate and investigated my claim. You had 3 hours to do so."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, no extra charge for blanket and pillow, gluten-free meal was quite good, provided water throughout the long flight, in-flight entertainment offered fairly recent movies, cabin crew were respectful."
Pros: "Once you get to the airline all is good"
Cons: "TAP changed the flight and only allowed 1 and one-half hours to transfer. You need to go through Portugal custums and the line is long."
Cons: "Our tickets said our flight was at 11. We got to the airport two hours early but found out our flight was actually at 10 (they wouldn't let us to try to make it). The airline didn't take into account / adjust the local time when we booked. Multiple customers experienced the same issue. We had to buy tickets on another airline."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, but could use a bit more padding for a long flight. The food was decent, and there was a good assortment of movies, music and TV shows."
Cons: "The crew seemed unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Excessive baggage fees on 2 connector flights TAP BUT TICKETS BOUGHT SEPARATE."
Cons: "My special meal request was not provided despite having email confirmation before boarding the flight. Also, my luggage was lost at the transfer of my journey"
Pros: "Friendly crew!"
Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."
Cons: "Late arrival in Lisbon, missed our connecting flight to Munich."
Pros: "on time clean plane price"
Cons: "flight attendant not super friendly older plane thus enttainement outdated"
Pros: "The flight was great the crew members were excellent and help ful the food was great"
Pros: "The food was delicious"
