Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Cons: "Arrived 1:10 min begore departure. Customer service reps quoted me with No Show. When asked they have no courtesy to answer. Both the rep over the phone and the rep at the airport were horrible. Did I say I was traveling business class? You could imagine the economy"
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Cons: "the child got the same food as us due i did not make clear i need a child food, now i am asking : is not clear that in that seat is a child of 4 years old ?"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "the seats are not as comfortable as those on new planes"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment system, free adult beverages and boarding process"
Cons: "I don't like that they have you pay extra for picking seats that have no extras. No preboarding. No extra legroom."
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "Food and beverage choices excellent"
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Great food/service/options, nice crew, on-time/early"
Cons: "Entertainment system is quite aged, but selections were OK"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Pros: "Virgin always provides the best, friendliest, coolest service!"
Cons: "The food is pretty low quality, but I understand the logistics constraints of feeding many people in a small space without kitchen facilities! Also the wine choices are superior to other airlines and I look forward to that. I normally plan ahead and bring my own meals whenever traveling by air."
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "The staff was nice. Boarding was quick and easy. Flight left on time and arrived early. Although the entertainment system had many options, going through lists and playing games required a lot of tapping, and in some cases pushing to make the system work. I felt like I had a woodpecker sitting behind me pushing on my head non-stop for over two hours. I was starting to go insane! Besides, it was so loud near the back of the plane that I couldn't hear anything through my cheap headphones."
Cons: "We could not eat any of the food. My son, my husband and I do not eat and/or are allergic to gluten, dairy, corn, soy and other food additives - as I mentioned above. Please have an option of food not swimming in sauces or cheeses. Plain organic chicken breast with steamed rice pilaf and steamed carrots would be nice. Maybe some steamed red potatoes and a piece of steak. An organic green apple for dessert. Forget the gluten, dairy, sugar or sauces that ruin a perfectly good ham or chicken and lettuce, tomato wrap! Or a salad swimming in dressing. We need to eat protein, not gluten for breakfast. Why not a hard boiled head!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."
Pros: "More leg room space in the economy space"
Cons: "I'm over 6 feet tall so the seat in the economy class I felt really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly service. Safe, on time flight."
Cons: "Chicken lunch was just so-so."
Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great food and movie offerings. On time and courteous staff."
Cons: "Cramped chairs- less leg room than Delta. Also, annoying that buying through Kayak left us without a code to be able to check in online, meaning we were left to be assigned seats at the airport."
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."
Pros: "Made the long flight bearable to have good food, drinks, and entertainment provided."
Pros: "Everything was great though navigating through the inflight entertainment could have been easier..."
Pros: "Seems like they are always bringing you something. Very friendly. Great entertainment to choose from. Plenty of leg room even for a tall person like myself (at least compared to other airlines)."
Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"
Pros: "Like the pleasantries from the Delta crew"
Cons: "More snacks :) !!!!"
Pros: "I flew standby (for the first time) to London and check in team in NYC was great."

Cons: "I almost missed the flight because I didnt hear the announcement for boarding and I was sitting near another gate to charge my phone. Fortunately I heard the final call!!"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was the worst I’d ever seen! No structure, only 1 person was taking tickets to board and would stop every third person to go back to the counter and checkndomething, holding up the entire boarding process. We were supposed to start boarding at 8:05, but started at 8:35...."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."
Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."
Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Cons: "I couldn’t sleep in a chair... wish I could"

I was supposed to have a 1.5 hour layover. I barely made my connection as I only had 20 minutes left until takeoff by the time we got off the plane."
Pros: "Pilot welcome to the plan was very nice seats was comfortable food was good"
Cons: "Crew attaitude is not really pleasant with passengers"

Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "It was great. The flight attendants are always helpful to us."
Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Cons: "2 1.5 hour delays for things that Delta messed up"

Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"

Cons: "Uncertainty re connections at JFK provoked some anxiety but the pilot and crew were helpful in allaying that."

Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."

I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in.

Cons: "TV was too slow."
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"
Pros: "Lovely crew, clean toilets"
Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority? The economy got their bags before 1st and business."

Cons: "bad smell around my seat"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight.

Cons: "wait time, food"
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Pros: "Bar/Coctail service on AF was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding area at CDG had almost nothing in the way of food and drink. Only one small Illy. Unbelievable in a major international airport."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Food was ok - don't know why my vegi meal didn't have cheese and dairy in it, would have made if better. Boarding was ridiculous long line. Could have been more efficient"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent in accommodating the passengers. One specific flight attendant was very patient in dealing with a continuously demanding passenger by being helpful and firm at the same time; a difficult combination of skills."
Cons: "The ground crew in CDG was very disappointing and unprofessional and very specifically in the luggage area. When I was told that my carry on luggage exceeded the allowed weight I argued that my luggage was weighed in Cairo and that it was less than the 12 Kg allowed weight. The Air France attendant then waved with annoyance to speak with her supervisor. When I approached her supervisor, who was speaking with another Air France employee, she looked annoyed and said just just to to booth #7 or 8 that handles excess luggage issues. My reaction is to avoid traveling through CDG in the future and I will focus on flying with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Professional and helpful crew."
Cons: "Food - two meals, one "hot pocket" item in each. Was not good. Noise level in the back of the plane from engines, very loud. Difficult to hear with headphones, volume very very high. Tray table was difficult to latch, recline feature of seat did not hold in place, bounced."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly plentiful and good. Crew was friendly and helpful. Movie selections were adequate."
Cons: "The leg room between seats was non-existant. I'm only average height and it was terribly cramped. For a taller person it would be torture."
Cons: "The airline needs to board and deboard by group number."
Pros: "Seat width"
Cons: "More leg room, Southwest actually has better leg room"
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"
Pros: "The crew seemed nice, they allowed me to board early."
Cons: "There was no entertainment because the system was not working in our area."
Cons: "on time departure"
Cons: "They canceled the flight"
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Couldn’t. Ate, slept, woke, ate and landed. Too easy"
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Cons: "The stewards on American Airlines are literally scary to talk to; rude and unprofessional."
Cons: "Boarding and the crew was not nice"
Pros: "service perfect"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Noisy children."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane the whole flight"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Great customer care"
Pros: "Nothing — the flight was cancelled because of a fault on the plane."
Cons: "Cancelled flight.."
Pros: "Organised, clean"
Cons: "Food... pizza... bad idea to serve during a flight. Moreover, the smell and the taste was bad"
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good entertainment option, good food."
Cons: "I reserved a special solo seat for extra $80 and got charged for it but did not get that seat. I was seated in a window side seat with another passenger."
Pros: "Gates, delays, changes"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. No opportunity for priority boarding. Flight crew no help. Just another hum drum experience."
Pros: "Crew was nice we."
Cons: "We were separated from our children even after we upgraded seats because they bumped us on the other flight."
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
Pros: "Almost everything :) Great new aircraft, really nice crew and well organized boarding."
Cons: "It is a longer flight that I would have liked, but I knew that."
Pros: "we upgraded to economy plus seats and it made all the difference - just having an extra 4-5 inches made the 11 hour flight so much more tolerable than the trip to Madrid."
Pros: "The flight to New York was not full and I was surprised when the representative automatically upgrades me to an even-more seat, which I found great because at 6-feet tall I had a tough time on the way to England being in the right spaces at the rear of the airplane."
Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "insuffecient supply of juices etc"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rickity old plane. Needs updates badly. No drink service options. Cash only bar? Hello, this is the 21st century calling the 20th... You can have your plane and payment methods beck."
Pros: "A great flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "I love everything on my trip service, time, flight"
Pros: "Delicious food. Very smooth flight had a great time traveling with this airline"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and tight."
Pros: "I like that they let a 70-yo wobbly old man hobble the length of plane to get some hot tea because there's no climate control i the air craft, and let the poor old man hobble back by himself juggling the hot tea in his hand and trying his best not to fall. Plus I truly admire one of the air stewardess's ability to chew gum - she was chewing vigorously throughout the 7-hour long flight. Amazing."
Cons: "BA and AA is the best partners. Because both their air crew are clueless about service standards. A 7-hour flight from London to JFK, again no meal choices, no offer of drinks in between meal times - is this a standard Western service level?"
Pros: "the crew went out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible very nice"
Pros: "The flight was a one way to PDX and felt fast and not exhausting coming from LHR. First time flying direct. Great food and snacks the staff took care of us. Bathrooms were cleaned over the trip which was great!"
Cons: "N/A - nothing..."
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Disaster"
Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Pros: "I was just happy to get a flight out early the next morning when my Thursday afternoon flight was cancelled."
Cons: "I ended up in a middle seat due to having to be rescheduled, but it was still comfortable."
Cons: "Flight leaving Miami delayed 1.5 hrs Flight leaving London delayed 3hrs"
Pros: "Options for entertainment. Seats felt larger. Plenty of storage space for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly."
Pros: "Volare con American"
Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"
Cons: "I found out that my original flight (Wilmington to NY) was canceled 5 hours before it was scheduled to leave. I was rebooked on an earlier flight to Charlotte, which I could do because I had coincidently finished packing early and lived close to the airport. At the airport, my new flight was delayed, which could have caused me to miss my connecting flight to Boston and be stuck at the Charlotte airport overnight. I was then rebooked on a flight that was leaving to NY, with a connecting flight to Boston at 7."
Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"
Pros: "All the AA staff were great, very helpful as I was traveling alone with my 10 month old son. One of the flight attendants helped me carry our things on, because it's tough to carry my son in his safety seat and our bags through the narrow aisles without beating up everyone in the aisle seats as we go through! She also checked on us multiple times to see if there was anything else she could help us with."
Cons: "The AA check-in at Heathrow is terrible. It took us over an hour to get through the line, then another 20 minutes to get our seats changed because the seats we had been assigned weren't suitable for an infant safety seat! Also, the plane is older than the one I first took on the RDU to london route back in 2001. The seating is cramped and there is no seat back entertainment."
Cons: "It didn't happened. Flight from Seattle was late and I flew 4 hrs later with LOT."
Cons: "Very disorganized Entertainment systems were very outdated, and were not operating correctly. Crew were mediocre at best. Were never friendly. Food was ok."
Pros: "Never in all my flying experiences have I had such quick baggage retrieval. I walked to the baggage claim area in Dallas and magically my bag was right in front of me and as if that wasnt enough the same thing happend when I returned to NY. If I can help it I will always fly American."
Pros: "Nothing! Horrible!"
Cons: "I had small carry on And there were nowhere to put them. The cabin for the carry one were full and my carry on had to be placed somewhere else, and knowing I had personal information in my bag. Very disappointed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "Mechanical delays leaving London, missed flight connection to New York, now TAP wants to charge me for rescheduling!"
Pros: "In time. Plane half full. Perfect."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was 1hr late. The airlines is not very good at updating the time the flight will leave."
Cons: "It was nice to get a snack but the quality was mediocre."
Cons: "The fact that people in coach class up to rows 28 as 2 choices of food and from row 29 and up have no choice we have to eat what they have twice to me"
Pros: "Great lie flat seat. Nice FAs."
Cons: "Food was not that great for intl C"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane - tightly-packed but comfortable seats. Note: if you travel with a bag with wheels it will be weighed at the gate and those over 8kg will be checked. If you have a heavy bag without wheels, it gets no scrutiny."
Cons: "Odd they didn’t have a terminal gate on their home airport - we were bused from a distant spot on the tarmac to the terminal."
Pros: "Smooth flight Crew extremely nice and helpful Good snack served (not the usual junk food some airlines give and charge for ) punctual"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Flight was late which seems to be a standard with TAP."
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "No issues or service challenges I could think of. Friendly. Helpful."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard and not a lot of legroom. But. Not unexpected for the section/price. Shorter flight made this bearable. Interior looked dated. Though, it is an A319."
Cons: "flight was delayed. ended up missing our flight from newark home."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Long flight uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Easy trip from London"
Cons: "Not sure what was in the sandwich."
Pros: "Center aisle seat was comfortable and pnethy of room for my carryon overhead and underseat."
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (Thisnflight the screen was messed up...not something you want to look at for 8 hours. ) I couldn't eat half the food because the salad wasn't anything but cabbage and a tomato and the corn and meat dish was cold and weird. I don't know what the dessert was but I got it down. I think the sandwich I got before landing was pesto and mayonnaise but I'm not sure. I didn't get much of it down before gagging. I wish when booking a flight you were given the menu or you could choose early in the flight and then be served. I bet it would cut down on wasted food and money."
Cons: "They damaged one of my bags and lost the other one. Bad service, really old planes and seats were to small; mind you I was traveling in business class. Over all a horrible airline"
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and already stocked with a pillow and blanket for all. we each had a personal screen stocked with movies, music, games and flight info. at no additional cost and that was great for passing the time during a long flight from Lisbon to NY. The crew was the best part, so pleasant and helpful and professional. We were instructed to close the shades and were allowed to sleep and woken up for the custom form and the great meal which had the option of soda or wine, etc. at no additional cost. The quality of the food was impressive and the salad even came with a packet of real Portuguese olive oil and vinegar. When appropriate we all had to open the shades and drinks were served again and later a small snack of a sandwich and a juice were given all in perfect timing."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was a n extensive selection of great movies to choose from."
Cons: "There were 2 screaming children in the row next to me. The parents did not handle themselves well. On the brightside, the crew did everything they could to help better the situation."
Pros: "The food was light and good."
Cons: "Not using the tube when deplaining. Summer in Lisbon is very hot ."
Pros: "The checkin staff at LHR were really good and helped me with my visa application. They helped me to not miss my flight. Ten out of ten for them."
Cons: "In flight food was very poor"
Cons: "I found it very frustrating that we were told at the ticket counter the boarding would begin at 11:15am for a 12:45pm flight time. I arrived at the airport over two hrs in advance and then had to run a significant distance through the airport and sweat and be unnecessarily anxious waiting on the customs line only to arrive at the gate at 11:20am, to have my bags checked for a second time and then be unable to get any food or coffee before a flight that did not begin boarding for another 40 minutes. I did and still do not see the need for that additional luggage/security check and then being held at the gate for almost an extra hour for seemingly no reason at all."
Pros: "Flight staff was great, service was top notch. food was surprisingly good, red wine included in your ticket. movie choice was good. coach seat was as manageable for a long flight. you pretty much know what your getting yourself into flying coach overseas. this was a pretty good seat."
Cons: "We flew thru about an hour straight of moderate turbulence but i'm guessing that was unavoidable. Checkin was a bit weird, they had a gate change and never announced it. Fortunately, i checked the board. about 6 of us had been at the other gate for a long while."
Pros: "solid flight, efficient"
Cons: "staff kind of moody, not really smiley"
Cons: "We experienced a 6 hour delay in Lisbon because there was no fuel available - terrible planning causing us to spend hours on the runway."
Cons: "this was a very last minute flight to return home. It was cancelled within hours. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "No delays, quick boarding and deboarding, friendly staff."
Cons: "Very limited legroom, no free checked bag without MileagePlus status."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Out of the 100+ flights I've been on in my life. TAP Portugal has been the worst and least professional."
Cons: "My first flight from Madrid to Portugal was cancelled (at midnight) so I had to sleep in the terminal because the bus they provided to the hotel couldn't take all of us. Then my flight to New Jersey was delayed several hours making me miss my next flight to Denver (home) and I had to spend a 2nd night in the terminal. I never received and hotel/food/taxi vouchers. I will do everything to avoid flying with TAP Portugal ever again."
Cons: "Sity no good"
Pros: "Nice flight, clean planes, decent amount of beverages/food provided, good TVs"
Cons: "Lisbon airport. Very antiquated, under-developed compared to other European capitals. Also, for major inter-city flights, it shouldn't be necessary to use external stairs to board a plane these days!"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight other than it got me to my destination alive. Food was plane food."
Cons: "Small seats (what made it worse was being seated between two "plus sized" people), no leg room, there was a pointless foot rest that was uncomfortable and lessened the leg room when down and cut off knee room when up, TV monitors in the whole center seating section were full of static with very limited channels. Constant updates over the loud speaker by the pilot and stewardess got annoying; felt like every 20-30 minutes and saying the same thing, and saying it in 3 different laugages."
Pros: "USB ports to charge your phone, watched almost a whole season of HIMYM:) good dinner."
Pros: "The attention was great, cordial and polite, was right on time, the movies current and good, I enjoyed the food too.i will fly TAP again for sure."
Pros: "The polar opposite of my flight experience on Jet airways. Quick, quite and smooth boarding and flight experience. Crew operated smoothly as a team. Flights were on time taking off and landing."
Cons: "No entertainment on a short haul flight and the food,choices,were,basic."
Cons: "Once we entered the boarding area we weren't allowed back out to get a sandwich, souvenir, etc. This was absolutely unacceptable. I felt like a prisoner in that area. I can't believe they thought this was OK."
Pros: "Excellent portuguese food served on board, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My entertainment console did not work for the entire 8 hour flight, and to make matters worse the screen kept flashing a bright white light every 30 seconds or so, preventing me from sleeping. I had to tell 3-4 crew members for them to at least broadcast a movie to my seat to make the flashing stop. I was also seated right next to the bathroom, which usually isn't so bad, but since most of the passengers were elderly, it was being used literally nonstop for the majority of the flight. The crew only briefly cleaned it once... I was seated next to a screaming toddler as well. This isn't really the airline's fault, but it certainly didn't help. I felt like I did not get my money's worth for this flight and that it was a poor experience."
Pros: "Good in every way"
Pros: "Very comfortable."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Service, staff, food, airplanes."
Pros: "Smooth flight, great in air service . Winston."
Pros: "I was lucky enough to be upgraded and I enjoyed everything!"
Cons: "My media center, screen, music etc abruptly shut off and remained off the the entire trip. On my previous flight all sound was lost on the on board media center."
Pros: "They were hospitable, cordial and always with a smile. The fact they provided a full meal on board was surprising to me, after flying with several carriers I didn't expect it. Keep up the great work!"
Pros: "seats, courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "Changed schedule resulting in a one day delay and refused to qquite a legally required refund amount over the course of 5 business days because it was "complicated""
