Baggage charge is nothing short of obscene, especially w/ lack of service provided
Pros: "Amazing crew, great customer service and high level quality plane, despite only 1 hr travel, they served small breakfast and chocolate"
Cons: "Despite the fact I bought my tickets with 1 hand luggage + 1 personal item, they forced me to dispatch my hand luggage stating flight was full, I refused and they said they could not allow me to board. Felt my rights violated, I HATE to dispatch luggage... and in the end there was space left on the airplane luggage storage areas. Not nice"
Pros: "10/10 would recommend.."

Pros: "Swiss is aways good"
Pros: "I do not know how to go about contesting his, but we bought 4 tickets to South Africa on Swiss air and Edelweiss via Zurich. We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."
Cons: "We purchased the last two again and when we showed up at the ticket counted they let us know that we bought 6 tickets!!!!!!!! We would like to be reimbursed for the two tickets we did not receive the confirmation emails for. How can we go about it?"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"
Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."
Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"
Cons: "I was boarding at gate C4. Doesn't anyone get it ! Using the word "bomb" in airports is a big no-no however C4 is OK? Even a little old lady knows what C4 stands for."

Pros: "Nice staff, very friendly"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi, could use more comfortable seating"
Pros: "Excellent, super-friendly crew, excellent meal"
Cons: "I have just had the most unpleasant experience with Swiss Air and feel that anyone on FB should be very careful when dealing with this airline. I am a Gold Member of Star Alliance for more than 20 years and have flown dozens of times on Swiss and would expect courtesy and consideration in return for my loyalty to their airline. Their flight from Hong Kong to Zurich leaves at 00:15. I mistakenly booked this for Nov 9th instead of the intended late evening of the 9th which then turns out to be Nov 10th. When I discovered my error, I called Swiss at least six times to explain my error and ask if my son could stand by for the same flight on the 10th or even apply the amount to rebook the same flight the next day. ZERO flexibility or consideration. Missed flight, lose entire value. Start from scratch. Astonished that an airline that claims to be serving their customers would treat me this way. I travel through Europe at least 6-10 times a year from Asia. I will now route through Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Vienna, Instanbul or even Moscow before ever going through Zurich again. I encourage anyone making travel plans to be very careful when considering flights with Swiss Airlines. Perhaps this treatment of a loyal customer explains why they went through bankruptcy already once."
Pros: "Food was better than some other long-haul flights I’ve been on. Plane fairly clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment options more limited than Delta or Virgin, who I’ve usually flown intercontinental. Boarding in Zurich was a mess. No order to it and they didn’t start boarding until 20 minutes before takeoff. Nearly every intercontinental flight I’ve taken needs closed to 45-60 minutes to do a full board. Sure we made up the time in the air but the process to get on the plane was frustrating."
Pros: "Service, entertainment and food are top notch!"
Pros: "i'd like services and the food"
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Pros: "Food was tasty and of decent proportions, entertainment, while somewhat limited in selection, contained a number of compelling movies bar I enjoyed. I had a bulkhead seat, which was exceedingly comfortable"

Cons: "I wish there were more bollywood albums and more bollywood movies...to choose from"

Pros: "Loved the food and wine. Very comfortable flight and the staff was wonderful"
Pros: "Nice Aircraft"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, and the food was both ample and appetizing."
Cons: "The boarding process is a little chaotic for the economy cabin since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a bit of a surge when they first announce the boarding of the cabin."
Pros: "No delays at all. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Screaming babies."
Cons: "No room and very hard to get t your seat"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were better than expected."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Staff and food was good as well"
Cons: "No room for legs"
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Direct answer is "nothing"; however, it should be noted that this not a Swiss Air flight. It was a code share on a United Airlines flight."

Pros: "Overall service was excellent and staff was courteous and helpful."
Pros: "seats were comfortable and we left on time."
A very disappointing business class trip from DC to Lisbon. Old plane, narrow rock hard seats, 45 minute delay in take off that brought us to 12:15AM, no particular greeting by attendants, no pretake off water or anything. No toiletries. No good. TP234. In contrast Lisbon to Funchal all one would expect. Terrific plane, business seat 1000x better than previous. Service and food excellent. Ground staff helpful in getting me to connection in spite of late arrival. Creative marketing and great graphics make TAP Portugal very appealing. They need to check their basics - flight was bad.
Unable to bring carryon onto the plane. Made us check
The food was not good and I felt that the crew was trying to save on drinks. Serving wine in a medicine cup was very cheap. Thanks
I didn’t like the ride with the bus to get to the terminal on the flight in Europe Crew was really nice
I didn't know anything about TAP Air Portugal but the flight was awesome and far cheaper than any other airline.
Great airline, took good care of us. Will use again if prices are good. Really enjoyed the 24 hr layover in Lisbon.
Very warm and friendly greeting and attentiveness during flight. Lack of strict protocol regarding departure. Didn't keep coach from overrunning business class on departure.
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "More food, more water"
Pros: "Missed the connection because TAP from Vienna arrrives late. The cre who received us at Lisbon airport was very helpful"
Cons: "TAP being on time and giving a reason why the flight was late"
Cons: "Seats were atrociously uncomfortable for a 6'1" man. Less than zero leg room due to ridiculously tight row spacing and non-reclining seatbacks. Had to attempt to cram in sideways - resulting in serious pain by the time the flight finally landed. Intercom system, especially from the captain, was painfully grating and loud. Boarding was extremely slow, in part because gate personnel made no effort whatsoever to police and enforce the four-group boarding process (premium - no carry-on - group A - group B). People boarded whenever they felt like it, many carrying on huge backpacks and multiple other pieces. Will definitely avoid TAP in future."
Pros: "The flat bed"
Cons: "The Captain made loud announcements waking you up"
Cons: "The crew not sympathique"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food is miserable."
Pros: "I didn’t like a thing. The crew from the gate all the way to the end was rude and nasty. The crew scanning people to get on the plane were so rude at the beginning it was the worst and I fly for my work and I’ll never fly TAP air Portugal again."
Cons: "Train the staff to be nice and pleasant"
Cons: "The crew did not know the law about child safety seats. They tried to inform us we could not use it, even though it is approved for air travel. Then they tried to tell us we had to face it forward, which is illegal and it cannot be secured like this. Then they told us the car seat needed to be against the fuselage, but that all the fuselage seats were taken. They did not offer a solution to this problem. I informed them this was TAP's fault for assigning those seats to us. They said they were not responsible, which is clearly wrong. They could have reassigned us at check-in and avoided the problem. They were very concerned about the ability of the person in front of us to recline their seat, but no interested at all in the safety of our baby. They told us we would not be able to use the seat, although our baby was already asleep. They were trying to find a way to make us leave the plane. Finally, some other passengers volunteered to move so we could sit against the fuselage with nobody in the seats in front of us, so we would not block them from reclining. A solution would not have been found by the crew. Only thanks to generous passengers were we able to stay on the plane, even though we were doing everything completely legally. They made my pregnant wife feel so bad that she cried for the first hour of the flight. Then, as the flight was concluding, our baby got airsick and vomited. They crew did nothing to help aside from bring 3 (!) napkins and then leave again. Incredibly unhelpful, mean, ignorant, and combative cabin crew. Truly appalling."
Pros: "Very happy with the service and seat comfort. Thank you"
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "In old section of Lisbon airport, and inadequate space to conduct orderly and efficient boarding Both deplaning and re boarding done via movable ramps and passage to and from exposed to weather (thankfully not raining)."
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I have taken in a very very long time. The ride was smooth but the seat was so terribly uncomfortable. I was in pain on arrival."
Cons: "We had to pay $120 for a checked bag because it “weighed too much”. The lady at the check in counter said they were weighing everyone’s at the gate so there was no way to get around it This however was a lie and they were not checking weight and people got on without having to pay the outrageous fee"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "The only salvation was the entertainment choices. ."
Cons: "The planes need to upgrade the seats. When we were served food if the person push their seat back your food tray would flip like two did on our flight. Staff was jaded and sarcastic. I'm glad I had a discounted flight. I'd be angry if I paid full price. Poor staff, seat architecture, and poor food."
Pros: "Would appreciate a voucher for how bad the Flight was. Seriously UAL is using a plane last built in 2004? UAL only cares about taking people’s money not a wonderful flying experience!!!"
Cons: "Better service, comfy seats with recline and entertainment"
Cons: "There was an undisclosed $120 baggage fee. The food was horrible and made me sick. We left nearly two hours late."
Pros: "The crew was generously serving me and the price was more reasonable than any other."
Cons: "I had a huge passenger next to me who took most of my space the whole time during the flight and ended up hurting my neck and back. I understand it had nothing to do with the crew, but not comfortable at all. Besides, there was no entertainment and even outlet available."
Cons: "We called the day before to ask about baggage and was told was included in price of ticket. Only to get to airport and be told was not included and cost 95 euro per bag. absolutely unacceptable and will warn all future associates that travel to Portugal"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "That I had to pay for my check in bag on my return trip. Was told the ticket I booked didn't include check in bags. Whan my trip going to Portugal on Azores Airlines did. Someone shout step in and change this practice. Very confusing for the traveler"
Pros: "The staff were somewhat helpful, and fairly friendly"
Cons: "The seats for a 5-hour flight couldn’t recline. The plane was freezing, there was no entertainment on the flight, and the seating wasn’t evenly distributed. There were many economy rows with only one person, then rows right next to that full with three people. The food wasn’t good either."
Cons: "Boarding gate too small. Suoer overcrowded"
Pros: "Prompt and courteous"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, just not enough space al the way around to be comfortable."
Pros: "Luggage was delivered, although very slow to arrive at carrousel"
Cons: "Luggage fees were excessively higher. Paid €75 per checked in bag one way! This was because our tickets were “on sale” and didn’t include any checked in baggage."
Pros: "Missed our flight due to initial delays."
Pros: "Punctuality, calm flight. I have been already too generous with my ratings, above!"
Cons: "To buy a ticket on their site is a mess! Never intuitive, a terrible maze! TAP´s president should be required to buy one ticket each morning... May be the site would improve. Got a ticket with seats “free of charge” on the printed e-ticket, but had to pay for them at checkin. It seems to be a scam... There would be more, but i lost my patience with TAP."
Pros: "Pretty unremarkable flight in an Embraur jet. On time"
Cons: "Basic food but wasn't expecting anything so it was a nice surprise"
Pros: "Staff courteous compared to our previous TAP FLIGHT"
Pros: "The check in was smooth and boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had problems with TAP up front related to baggage fares and them keeping the $85 I paid for my son who is 2 meters tall to be in an exit row and then assigned to a different seat. He was miserable for almost seven hours."
Pros: "I got to Lisbon on time."
Cons: "just another bus ride"
Pros: "The crew were kind and considerate."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever experienced. There was an incessant, loud high-pitched buzzing noise for the entire duration of the flight (we were seated in the very back row so it was particularly loud for us, but others further up said it was bad for them too). Also, we had straight turbulence for over two hours. I've never gotten sick on a plane before, and my husband never gets motion sickness, but we both threw up (and I think several others did, too). I don't blame the crew for any of this, as I know most, if not all, of it was out of their control. However, I would be very nervous to flight TAP again due to this experience."
Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Pros: "Check in app"
Cons: "Non-reclining seats"
Pros: "The trip was perfect. My bag does not think the same way."
Cons: "Everything was perfect until I receive my bag and notice that two (2) items were missing: my snorkeling face mask, and my camera's tripod. Who is responsible for this? How can I be happy with this?"
Cons: "Your change and return policy is a ripoff."
Cons: "The monitors did not work."
Pros: "everything was great"
Cons: "they had some video problems early in the flight but had it fixed about a third into the flight"
Cons: "Carrying your luggage downstairs is crazy. And then taking a crammed bus to board the plane -- seems very 1960's"
Pros: "The plane arrived in Lisbon without falling out of the sky prematurely."
Cons: "The process of checking my bag was brutal. It took an hour and half of waiting in line because the staff's management of the flow of people was so chaotic. Finally, a staff member realized that certain passengers were at risk of missing their flight and invited those passengers (like me) to jump to the head of the line. Otherwise, no communication from the staff to the queue of anxious people."
Cons: "Second half of flight was very rough"
Pros: "I had a flight from Madrid --> Lisbon airport with a final connection from Lisbon --> NYC JFK and we were delayed in Madrid therefore arriving at boarding time of our other flight in Lisbon. The crew was so professional and prepared that when we landed in Lisbon there was a bus that brought about 25 of us who were connecting with final destination to JFK to the closest door to go through passport control and board onto our flight to JFK that they held for a good 30-45 minutes until all of us made our connection. Very professional and organized. Much appreciated that I didn't miss my final connection! Love flying TAP and will continue to do so!"
Pros: "No delays, quick boarding and deboarding, friendly staff."
Cons: "Very limited legroom, no free checked bag without MileagePlus status."
