Over the next 2 days I spend 7 hours on the phone with Vamaya, Iberia and Finnair and no one could seem to help me. The story always changed and I was given crazy false information. I was even told my flight was changed to 8pm on departure date when it actually was leaving at 4:40 pm. I am glad I got to the airport early. I had to to deal with all my problems. In 30 years of travel I have never had an experience so frustration. I would love to speak to someone at Kayak."

Pros: "Extremely disapointed of the way i had to find what airline was in charge of the flight. I almost missed it. I had to ask 3 different airlines, nobody could help me, i had to change terminal.

Pros: "Super smooth airplane, great entertainment system, extra space between seat and window"

Pros: "Had two seats so comfortable. Food typical Iberia fare. Pleasant staff. Arrived early."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Iberia had a plenty of crew members and everything ran smoothly. Also, believe it or not, airlines, the little things really make a difference. It's nice to have a pillow and blanket in economy and decent meals with metal flatware. The video selections on Iberia are excellent too. A good flight that left on time and landed on time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. There was not much communication about the delay."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. The movie choice was mokingjay part 2 so I had no idea what it was about and the quality was bad"
Cons: "Iberia would not allow me to select seats when I booked the flight. We only received seats at the airport - bad policy. The rows were too close together - my knees rested on the seat in front of me. Also, we spent nearly 900 Euro for 2 people to travel to Granada but were charged extra for a drink on the flight. I think 900 Euro should get me a drink on the plane. cheap cheap"
Cons: "Over an hour and a half delay No assistance with our connecting flight We missed it by less than 10 minutes I had to pay the cost of the first flight and then pay for business class to get to our destination That's almost $1500 AND we had to wait 6 hours to get on the next plane The crew was barely civil We were dying of thirst Horrible airline"
Pros: "Ticketing counter staff"
Cons: "Boarding staff seemed to pick on the size of carry-on bags at random. I saw some overfilled huge duffle bags go through while some small bags were blocked and then found fit into the test-rack nicely. An air-hostess on the plane was too busily chatting with passenger friends to help me but her colleague came to my rescue"
Pros: "Staff was polite"
Cons: "the flight was late leaving so I had only minutes to get to my connecting flight in the international terminal at Madrid to get back to the states Staff did nothing to assist those of us with connecting flights to make sure we got to our gates in time. There was little legroom and while our flight was short between Barcelona and Madrid there was no refreshments offered except for items for sale."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. Movies were old Follow up was off"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "The aircraft seemed old. There were no personal screens, only shared ones in the isle. For a long flight, one would expect a more modern plain."
Pros: "Dinner was excellent and service was ver good. Flight attendants were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "Breakfast was awful. The sandwich they gave us was cold and hard. Instead of fruit we got fruit candy. Very poor breakfast. i was traveling with my 97 year old grandmother who needed a wheelchair. Although the people that performed the service were very friendly and nice, they didn't get us to the connecting flight's gate on time so we lost the flight. That meant 7 hours waiting in the airport for the next flight. Extremely uncomfortable and borderline dangerous for my grandmother."
Pros: "Short flight that was perfectly good."
Pros: "everything !"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "No food (only paid menu), no entertainment which was okay for 1hr 15 min flight."

Cons: "Easy checkin, friendly staff, nice quick flight"
Pros: "Nothing the crew was mean and rude I’ll never fly TAP air Portugal again"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "We were waiting for a long time in the bus from the airport to the aircraft. Once we got to the plane, we were waiting inside the bus again."
Cons: "It was over an hour late with little information about why. The gate wasn't shared until the last minute. Boarding was awful and confusing. We were stuck sitting at the gate for a long time with no air and the crew didn't deserve the last ten rows any water. The luggage also took forever to get onto the belt. Overall bad"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Providing more drinks and beverages"
Cons: "The airline staff closed the gate and would not let all passengers board, causing over 30 to have to be rebooked on flights the next day."
Cons: "Gate location information delayed until last minute!"
Cons: "There wasn't food or entertainment. Might want to add NA as an option in those categories"
Cons: "3:30 hrs delay lost my convection no one to talk to or any help they gave me nothing I had to stay overnight at my expense n pay new ticket hotel food taxi etc nobody will help or respond for anything"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Delayed transport to flight, tiny non-reclining seats. Food offering mediocre and had to flag down flight attendant just to get water they we're giving to everyone but some of us apparently."
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."
Cons: "Bad experience with charged"
Cons: "Unruly boarding lines. Plane late .flight attendant less than friendly"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, your site said that I would not have a luggage charge, but I was charged 37 euros more when I checked in."
Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Cons: "Two flights today. Both over an hour delayed."
Pros: "It was a very short flight, so non-reclining seats were not a problem. They also seemed a nice distance from the seat in front, so there was no problem of having the person in front basically in your lap."
Cons: "They handed out a small biscuit which made me expect water or coffee to have with it. This is not the case."
Cons: "I booked this flight months and months ago on Kayak, excited by what I thought was an excellent deal to go visit an old friend. When I got to the Boston airport, I was told there is a fee to check a bag with the ticket type I purchased- of 90 DOLLARS each way!!! This is absurdly expensive. I tried to pay with cash as I had very little on my card, and was told this isn't possible. So I had to pay the fee, and arrive at my 7 hour layover with next to no cash on my card- too little to buy a meal in the airport. So I had a miserable layover experience. I do not recall seeing this baggage fee listed anywhere on Kayak when I booked my flight- it looks like this policy took effect in September 2017, but I booked my flight in July. I am very upset about this additional charge- it is dishonest and I will not be flying with TAP again. I am also considering using alternatives to Kayak, as the TAP representative said that it's Kayak's fault the baggage fee wasn't listed."
Cons: "everything is ok but food is bad. better give to passenger fruit or bisquit, wafers"
Pros: "First class accommodation was great! We had about a 3-hour flight and would have appreciated a blanket, pillow and a headset."
Cons: "I didn't like that first class was checked in first at the counter. But everyone rode on the same bus and disembarked at the same time so first class didn't really board the plane first. Some of the TAP counter employees were very unhelpful & actually dismissive. We had gate 19 and there was no sign of activity when it was time to board. When asked some counter employees, they couldn't care less. You should post something at the gate assigned about a gate change or delay. A lot of passengers were confused and uninformed."
Pros: "Of no change is BULLSHIT"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew very friendly, check in process easy"
Cons: "Seats are very unconfortable and the space limited. baggage policy isn't very clear; I had to pay 20 extra euros for a checked bag"
Pros: "We were late because of delay of the first part of our fly : Zurich - Lisbon, but the fly Lisbon- NewYork waited for us."
Cons: "Our TV didn't work. There is not possibility to charge phone on the fly."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
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: "In the air excellent"
Cons: "On the ground, poor communication"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, plane was clean, smooth flying, takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took us 1 hour even though we had already checked in online. hard, and narrow seats, needs more legroom for international travel, armrest between my wife and I was very wide and wouldn't go up all the way making it extremely uncomfortable for us on a flight from Miami to Portugal. My wife's seat didn't recline because it was broken. And to top it all off they lost one of our luggage tags because the lady in Miami tagged the bag with somebody else's name and destination on it. Still waiting to hear if I'm going to have my luggage for one year anniversary vacation....!"
Pros: "The trip back home to NY from Lisbon was great, flight staff was attentive and courteous, the plane was clean, the entertainment made the time go by fast and the warm blanket and pillow provided a comfortable experience."
Cons: "Unfortunately my girlfriend is a celiac and we forgot to pre-order a gluten free meal, so she had little to no food options for her to eat. The sandwich offered right before landing could be made with gluten free bread or even a corn based tortilla."
Cons: "Carrying your luggage downstairs is crazy. And then taking a crammed bus to board the plane -- seems very 1960's"
Cons: "Very poor check in!! We checked two bags when we went to the desk to get our boarding passes.....then when we were boarding the plane, I went through without a problem but my wife was flagged. we were informed that we now had to pay for our checked bags..both of us even though I had already been cleared. 70 dollars was needed...and so with our flight ready to leave we had to just about run 250 meters and then back 250 meters to catch our flight....we are in our 60's!!!!!. If we had to pay we should have been told at check in! and to make matters worse both of our checked bags are carryon size...we only checked them because we thought it would be convenient. Given that it was not our mistake that bag fee should have been waived....very poor customer service to people who have flown TAP many times........"
Pros: "Lovely crew, nice breakfast, ON TIME!"
Pros: "On time and the plane may have been the cleanest aircraft I've ever been on."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind. All in all, a very nice travel experience."
Pros: "Free blanket, pillow, headphones, and wine! Flight was on time, no one weighed or measured carry on bags."
Cons: "Tight seats for an international flight!"
Pros: "Staff couldn't have been more courteous."
Cons: "Little confusing at the gate but mainly due to poor PA system not the staff. Happens a lot at airports in my experience"
Cons: "The flight was 45 min late and nobody seemed to bother about it"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Cons: "No water, but it's a short flight so they probably just didn't have time."
Pros: "Both meals very nice. Crew members pleasant"
Cons: "Food served a bit late"
Pros: "The crew was fine. Plane clean and comfortable. Would fly again."
Cons: "Agent at the gate wouldn't let me do a medical pre-board. When I checked it, the ticket agent said it wouldn't be a problem, I should just ask at the gate. The agent there said there would be no reason to board early even though I have a doctor's note. She said I could board with everyone else and was extremely rude and dismissive. Thank goodness the ticket agent helped me out (by putting me in a seat where I'd be first to board), but if he hadn't, it would have been a terrible experience."
Cons: "It did not included luggage cost which means i had to pay additional cost. You SHOULD state it in booking pages (NOT LINK). If i knew it i would never use TAP. I found direct flight, cheaper. I want you to pay back."
Pros: "Nice crow"
Cons: "We spent about a half hour waiting to take off"
Pros: "Easy checking and boarding process"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees not updated on website. Despite having done my due diligence about baggage fees, the airline didn't update their website since October for my November trip. So I get to airport and pay 74 euro each way for two bags! Old planes and poor customer service Also, nobody picks up their customer assistance telephone number"
Pros: "I only liked the price of the fare....everything else matched the price of the fare. Cheap and bad."
Cons: "First of all I fly all the time at least once a week. This is my first time experiencing roaches on an aircraft!. I tried calling someone but I was looked at and ignored because I wanted to ask top change seats. I didnt want to cause a scene and affect the airlines reputation with people freaking out or feeling uncomfortable so I just moved to another aisle. Service very mediocre and plane was old."
Cons: "To whom It May concern: My husband and I had a very very bad time trying fly from lisbon to Madrid through TAP. We booked together under same booking number. We don't know why my husband's ticket had been cancelled?? Thanks good! We have to spend five times more money to buy another ticket to fly together!! Now we try to find out what happened. Nobody want to take the responsibility!! Hope someone can give us the answer! Qi"
Pros: "Staff, online check in, plane, in flight soft drink"
Cons: "Small delay, (about 10 minutes), but this happens"
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "Again delayed and seats were ridiculously small"
Pros: "Crew great, flight fast"
Cons: "Old plane"
