Daily cleaning, installation of cabin HEPA filters on flights to Sweden
Sweden has restricted the entry of most foreign travelers arriving from outside of the wider European Area until at least March 31. Swedish nationals and residents may still return to Sweden from countries outside the EEA.
On July 2, the Swedish Government announced that citizens and long-term residents of EEA countries, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, or Vatican City, people with Swedish residence permits, and their family members may now enter Sweden, regardless of the purpose of travel.
From December 21 to February 14, Sweden imposed a temporary entry ban that will be in effect for foreigners who arrived from the UK, Denmark and Norway with exception for certain travelers.
Visa holders of Sweden and people with a visa over 3 months for another EEA country may also enter, as may people with an 'essential purpose' such as healthcare workers, health researchers and students attending a Swedish institution. More information may be found here.
In addition to this, residents of Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, and Uruguay may also enter Sweden.
Diplomats, border workers, healthcare professionals, transport personnel, relief workers, and travelers visiting for urgent family reasons may also enter Sweden.
Foreign travelers must present a medical certificate with a negative test result issued within 48 hours prior to travel. Travelers under the age of 18 are exempt from the test requirement.
The Swedish government recommends that all passengers who arrived from the UK since December 12 should self-isolate for 7 days and take a PCR test in the day of arrival and after 5 days.
There are currently 31,702 active cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in SE and 342 deaths as of Jun 16 2021

An average nonstop flight from the United States to Sweden takes 15h 26m, covering a distance of 4598 miles. The most popular route is Newark - Stockholm with an average flight time of 7h 45m.
The cheapest ticket to Sweden from the United States found in the last 72 hours was $15 one-way, and $318 round-trip. The most popular route is Newark to Stockholm Arlanda and the cheapest round-trip airline ticket found on this route in the last 72 hours was $318.
Based on KAYAK flight searches, the most popular destination is Stockholm (78% of total searches to Sweden). The next most popular destinations are Gothenburg (10%) and Kramfors (3%). Searches for flights to Vilhelmina (1%), to Malmö (1%) and to Jönköping (1%) are also popular.
Folkets Park is the oldest leisure park in Sweden and a top tourist attraction each year. The park is in Malmo City in the county of Skane, so Gothenburg Airport is geographically the closet of the hubs. The drive from there is about 3h via the E20 motorway to the park.
The high-tech city of Linkoping is located almost midway between Stockholm and Gothenburg. A drive from Stockholm Airport will be just over 2h while a drive from Gothenburg Airport will be over 3h, so you can drive there or take other ground transportation after your flight from the US to Sweden if you wish to pay a visit.
A visa is unnecessary if you are a national from the Schengen zone, or if you are from one of the countries (62) that are exempt from visa requirements. Since the US is exempt, no visa is required, and you can stay for a maximum of 90 days within a period of six months.
Yes, there is a major international airport close to Gotland Island. The largest island in Sweden lies not far off the eastern mainland, so both Stockholm-Arlanda Airport and Stockholm-Bromma Airport are within proximity. Though Stockholm-Bromma is closer geographically, you can get daily flights from Stockholm-Arlanda Airport to Visby Airport (VBY).
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a given destination and date is likely to change within 7 days, so travelers know whether to wait or book now.
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"
Pros: "Swedish lady good, Spanish lady not as much."
Cons: "Spanish lady."
Pros: "The airplane clean ,Food good etc."
Pros: "The stand was really kind."
Pros: "Great legroom for premium seats. Even though not an emergency exit, bags need to go up, which doesn’t make sense at all."

Cons: "We had three hour delay due to thunderstorms."
Pros: "The food was great. The fresh bread is always wonderful."
Cons: "There were no free alcoholic drinks which help me to sleep. I changed seats and moved Mach further back in the plane. I don’t know if that contributed to it, but I was disappointed when I learned of this."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Complimentary bottles of water. Comfortable blankets."
Cons: "I had a middle seat."
Pros: "All around everything was excellent. Will most likely always fly SAS between Riga and USA."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food as well"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Decent amount of overhead space. The pilot was friendly. USB ports for charging phones at the seat. Free bottle of water at your seat."
Cons: "No overhead fan. When flight got really hot, no way to moderate temperature. No choice of food at all, unless you are in economy plus. I don't remember the last time that a trans-Atlantic flight had at least a meant, or fish, or vegetarian dish. Usually, at least two or three dishes. On SAS, everything has to be ordered ahead of time. Some of the flight attendants were friendly, some not so friendly. No free alcoholic drinks even with dinner. Limited regular drinks - they are only served with food, aside from that you have to purchase even the non-alcoholic drinks. The food just wasn't very good, even compared to other airline food. Compared to other companies, relatively small selection of entertainment. I had considerably more choice on a domestic flight than on a 9 hr. international SAS flight. Storage pockets at the seat are pretty small."
Pros: "Timely & helpful"

Pros: "It flew"
Cons: "The effort put in to work with change of plans"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."

Cons: "I didn't like that they interrupted programming to announce they were walking on board shopping through the cabins. They did this twice! Really unnecessary!"
Pros: "Everything, especially the entertainment. Food was delicious as well and the flight attendants were very accommodating."
Cons: "Small screen tv's that were mounted on the bathroom walls at the middle of the plane remained on during sleeping time and were too bright. Difficult to sleep during this as the scenery pictures continually changed."

Pros: "the salted almonds and cashews were very nice."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Weather did not cooperate, not airlines fault...."
Cons: "This survey is broken and keeps sending you back to step 1. Icelandair staff were full of misinformation. Chicken sandwich was full of shrimp, which is a major allergen."

Cons: "I was sitting in the middle seat"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. I slept the whole flight!"
Cons: "The layout of the terminal in Reykjavik is obviously under renovation, but they could still make it look presentable"
Cons: "cramped seats-- but MOST IMPORTANLY HUGE surprise that there was a $ 95.00 charge for each checked bag. This was not stated anywhere clearly that this was an extra charge that had to be paid and therefore made the not so expensive ticket much more expensive in the end. It cost 400 dollars more and I think that is outrageous that this was not told by anyone until the flight itself. I fell Kayak owes usan explanation and money back ."
Pros: "The seats were roomy and comfy and I was glad I didn’t have to pay extra for a seat like other airlines."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing and the customers reacted by plowing Willynilly down the ramp nano seconds after the physically challenged were wheeled on to the plane ignoring the airline staff at the gate. I went with the flow praying I would not get arrested. We boarded a total of 40min late . Second if I am paying for my baggage I should not have to wait 30-40 min for them to come out at baggage claim."
Cons: "Wish there were more current options on the infotainment system."
Cons: "Cabin was very cold"

Cons: "1. No Food service except water. 2. Flight was delayed. 3. At RFK airport no better directions. Not a good experience."
Pros: "I really appreciated the USB port built into the seat so I could charge my gadgets. The flight wasn't packed so I didn't feel claustrophobic. It was a fantastic experience there and back."
Cons: "Food and alcohol and headphones weren't free. The movies were very old."
Pros: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."
Pros: "Flight crew was really nice, attentive, respectful"
Pros: "Everything A-OK."
Pros: "Flight good. Missed the pay for food trolley, so didn't eat."
Cons: "Reykavic airport has the least amenities I have ever experienced. Very few seats in the lounge. Most are forced to stand or lie on the floor. Don't think that getting through the gate will mean getting on plane, it's too another waiting room with a few seats, mainly standing. The airport has no seated restaurants or cafes. So getting off a plane hungry id not pleasant. I will never again fly to and from New York via this 'airport'"
Pros: "See comments above."
Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "Safe and pleasant."
Cons: "I arrived my destination 24hrs late. 2 unplanned stopovers. Terrible experience."

Cons: "Did not realize that free meals were not provided. The trip ended without eating for 9 hours, as no hot meals were offered."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The plane was too hot, delayed take off lost luggage"
Cons: "Although I paid for a confirmed seat and chose my seat 6 months in advance, when 24 hour check-in rolled around I was told I had been moved to standby and would thus only have a seat if there were any left once everyone else had checked in. I had to wait until I arrived at the airport the day of to even find out if I had a seat. There were only two left when I checked in, so I just barely got on the flight. I had originally chosen a seat next to a friend traveling with me in the middle of the cabin, in the end I got a seat in the very back of the plane- no room in the overhead bins since they were reserved for flight equipment, couldn't recline, and was right by the kitchen, so it was too noisy to sleep. When I called customer service to try to fix all of this, in the middle of explaining my problem (after waiting on hold for an hour) I was told to stop talking and that it was the rep's turn to talk. In addition to not getting my problem resolved, he hung up on me! Worst treatment I've ever received on an airpline, and I've flown thousands of times on dozens of airlines. Once this trip is over I am never flying Icelandic again!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Reykjavik over 1.45 hrs, which made us barely able to catch the connecting flight in Stockholm. Were told wrong info by an attendant that we had to go thru customs in Stockholm. Were not told by Denver check in staff in Denver that we had to pick up our one checked bag in Stockholm, and rechecking it before getting on the SAS flight to Gothenburg, so the bag got left in Stockholm.."

Pros: "quiet and clean.. no turbulence"
Cons: "I spend a lot of money on tickets and it seems like a glass of wine would be a nice gesture by the airline to say thanks for coming, we are glad you are here, relax."

Cons: "I wish there had been some way to charge my phone"

Cons: "Unfortunately, the wifi was not working the entire 8-hour flight."
Pros: "I loved being offered newspapers before takeoff. in-flight entertainment had a good selection, food was good, and there was a decent amount of space on this flight because it was relatively empty."
Cons: "One of the shows I started watching on had one episode. Handmade tail?"
Cons: "crew... food was awful..."
Pros: "Crew - all professional and helpful. We left on time/arrived early - no mishaps. Movie selection - excellent, made the time go faster for first flight. Very comfortable the first flight. Pleasant experience."
Cons: "Food was not so great. Too much fat on the chicken. The salad smelled off/bad and didn't look appertizing. the beverages too smaller cup/quantity given (hot tea)."
Cons: "In Chicago, again my carryon things and person were extensively searched, to the point that the explosives expert was called to examine my shoes and cell phone!! If anyone would have been trying to get away with something, they were certainly able to with the time and energy wasted on me as I was only anxious to get home to see my grandchildren!!"
Cons: "I was Given different seat at boarding into less comfortable place - no explanation."
Pros: "Philadelphia to London"
Cons: "Rarely served drinks, 1h 30 min delayed flight, therefore missed connecting flight, mo assistance at all from crew regarding alternative connections, I will never fly with Iberia again"
Cons: "Missed connection from Chicago. International connections need more time to complete"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. They told us it was sent to another city by mistake and that they would get it to us as soon as it arrived. It's a long story but we didn't get the bag for a week.

Cons: "FOOD WAS POOR."
Pros: "The entertainment system with movies was great, with plenty of choices and good sound. The crew was very good. Legroom on the seats was good. They kept the temperature in the plane just right. We could board first because we had a 5-year-old child."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour leaving Chicago, and arrived an hour late in Madrid. The screen was not updated in Chicago to let us know what was going on. It's a mass of people at the gate, with very little systematic lining up. One luggage piece did not come out on the carousel in Madrid. We had to wait 1.5 hr at the airport to confirm that they would send it to our Madrid hotel. Hopefully it will come. The food was mediocre. Pasta for dinner with little to no meat. Not even fruit. They are clearly saving money on the food."
Pros: "Great crew, good dinner but below Average breakfast"
Pros: "My flight went smooth and on time. I think we were early. The service is impeccable. Most in-flight meals are pretty crummy if you get one at all. The flight I took wasn't packed somthere was plenty of room. Even if it was there was still a fair amount of space. The entertainment was way better than the ole " everyone get to watch the same thing. Wi-Fi, new releases, even some classic 80's. if you get bored on this flight you really don't deserve to fly internationally."
Cons: "I"lol have to fly them again and find some fault. They worked on my flight and my Mother flew with Iberia and had the same good impression."

Pros: "the boarding with 2 kids was super easy."
Cons: "we were not able to get a seat by the bulk head and so could no take advantage of the basinet."
Pros: "The codeshare system with American is so far from seamless! The messed up the seat assignment that I paid for and tried to make me feel like it was my fault! It was a huge hassle to change."
Cons: "Doctor recommended not to travel but no credit given."

Cons: "Food was just ok"
Pros: "Movies were good, seats were OK"
Cons: "Paying $85 for a 2nd bag"

Pros: "On time, no hassles. The flight went well."
Cons: "Didn't have any non meat food available on Good Friday. Apparently, the airline ran out."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I think the Brie cheese I ate made me sick afterward. I wish the staff had brought water around more."

Pros: "Alcohol allowed for free. Friendly people"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and personal touch screen were great. The captain seemed to do well with abating most turbulence."
Cons: "The cabin crew weren't all that friendly and were super stingy about giving out water during the flight. The legroom was very limited compared to my last trans-Atlantic flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking was a mess : Could only check in for the first flight, checkin for the second time was available 24h before the second flight, and when I finally was able to check in, it failed. so I had to check in at the desk in Paris. I also was not sure if I had to checkin at the AA desk or Iberia desk : ended up being AA, but you all should be clear about this and say it on your confirmation email for multi company flights. My ticket said Iberia but the flight was handled by AA. Food was awful and no personal screen in the plane, but that's not your fault."
Cons: "I have to say with all sincerity that my pre travel experience was horrible. Two day before my flight I got an email saying my flight had changed. 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."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, no option given to rebook over the phone or at another desk. I waited 6 hours in the airport to get my flight rebooked for the following day. Cancelations happen but there was no plan in place, to manage such a situation. We were offered no compensation except free chips 5 hours into the wait. I've never had a worse experience with an airline."
Pros: "No delayed flights"

Pros: "All airplane attendants were very helpful and always on the call."

Pros: "The extra legroom in the Classic Package Seats."
Cons: "The snacks where a little on the dull tasteless side."
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: "The lady checking me in was nice"
Cons: "Items were stolen from my bag"
Pros: "Food was great, seat was amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was done by bus and it took too long and it want comfortable"
Cons: "Maybe have one flight be on time. Train ground crew how to put on fuel."
Pros: "Good entertainment, great price"
Cons: "Had about 30 people on our flight that was taking another TAP connecting flight - missed the gate by less than two minutes - did not hold the plane when they could have"
Pros: "It got us to our destination."
Cons: "Seats sucked. Screaming kids. Wouldn’t let us bring our carry-on for the last leg: Lisbon to Barcelona even though there was room."
Cons: "Ok, it's TAP, it's a bargain, but the "breakfast" was a pitiful piece of meat on a stale piece of bread"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Worst accommodations for baggage on a international flight in my opinion.Pay for a bag is the best advice in my opinion this airline barley lets you bring anything with. Disgusting plane it was so dirty I took a shower after this flight and the amount of dust in the air was visible terrible"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "My baggage did not get delivered to the final destination, that could have been handled better."
Cons: "Coordination between connection flight"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, a nice and relaxed flight and they gave out complimentary food and coffee which was brilliant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was out of their control"
Pros: "Plane was fairly modern inside with power sockets and usb sockets for each seat."
Cons: "Checkin was a total computer and staff failure. Checkin staff really bad and unhelpful Boarding was late. Mechanical delays over an hour. Late flight. Flight attendants forcing you to put bags under seat in front of you instead of overhead bin. Bad lunch. Some attendants poor attitudes."
Cons: "Avoid Lisbon airport and TAP Air Portugal at all costs. A 1 hour connection at the inefficient Lisbon airport resulted in a 9HOUR DELAY. MISERABLE. Air Portugal didn’t allow adequate connection time."
Pros: "A good airline- I will use them again!"
Cons: "Again contact to customer service ahead of the flight was impossible I sent 3 messages about travel with ESA dog and got no response"
Pros: "The seats do recline, more space than Delta or United"
Pros: "It was a rather empty flight so I was able to have space to myself to stretch out."
Cons: "Everything. We were late boarding, late taking off, micromanaged by the crew like we’re stupid, the food was truly god awful atrocious... and there were like 20 movies to choose from for a 7 hour flight. Furthermore, there were NO snacks available for purchase so you were forced to eat gross food."
Pros: "Really nice crew, good food and wine, very attentive and accommodating. I’m used to flying spirit and Norwegian and this was a huge upgrade, though there’s not much in flight entertainment. Definitely good and cheap. Will fly again."
Cons: "Schedule wrong, missed next flight"
Pros: "Probably won’t buy from Kayak again."
Cons: "Charged double for baggage on moble check in. Called 3 times - spent over an hour to find out since I bought discount tickets no refunds for excess baggage. I didn’t want excess baggage their website automatically charged double - website said ecess charged automatic when checking in. Won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "The drinks were available."
Cons: "The drinks were expensive."
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: "The fact that it was a direct flight."
Cons: "First of all, I would like to start by saying that I flight with TAP very often. I guess you can check on your system. I had good experiences in the past and actually recommeded to friends/family. I hope this flight was an exception. A few things were not that good this time. 1) First of all, the online check-in wasn't working until a few hours before the flight, and I didn't even give me the option to choose my seat. Once in the plane, I noticed plenty of empty seats in several areas of the plane. I could have had a much better seat. Also, the fact that the price of the luggage in the ticket is not included is insane! They let you know right at the boarding area. Another 100 plus dollars in addition to the 1,6000 that I paid for the ticket. Incredible!! And they only gave us 15 dollars voucher!! 2) There was a 2 hours delay due to a storm in the south of the USA. Although I am fully understandable with the fact that this situation is out of hands for the TAP company, is it in their hands the care and wellbeing of their passengers. As previoulsy stated, I received a 15 dollars voucher to use becasue of the delay. At any airport, for any decent meal, you will pay a minimum of 25-30 dollars. All items are more expensive. While waiting in the gate to board, we were not offered with snacks, water, etc.. additionally, no announements or updates at all. 3) I had a very uncofortable situation with one of the filght attenders. Male, very tall, dark hair and dark skin. When distributing dinner, I found the way he approached me very disrespectul, ironic and dismissive. ZERO customer services and he is actually the face of TAP in these planes. Unaceptable. I have to look all the way up to him, he wouldn't make an effort to band a bit (of course, not completely) to at least try to hear what I was saying. He was requesting me to speak loud but he would not make a minimum effort to get close to me. His demeanor and attitude made me feel very upsted... abuse of power... to the pooint that I ended up not taking the meal. No manners at all. He should understand that after hours of waiting (check-in usual time plus the 2 hours delay) we were all very tired. Particularly at that timeof the day. Some of us where up for since earlyi in the moring and you could tell that most of the passengers were exhausted. The second we got into our seat, we all used our blankets and try to sleep. He was not empathetic or councious about that. I felt very uncomfortable. Both of the girls that were also in the back area of the plane, were also lacking manners and customer services. I don't know.. other times was much better."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "The crew & cleanliness in general . On time ."
Cons: "What I don’t like in all modern flights in economy( not enough leg room) . I’m 5feet 8 and can hardly fit . I’m Not overweight. I can’t imagine what taller people must feel like."
Pros: "The extra room and comfort the business class provides"
Cons: "The business class cabins are not up-to-date and state of the art. The seats are not comfortable. On my outbound flight, the seat did not fully lay flat. The electrical outlet was old and worn out and ended up not charging my devices because it was too loose. They need to install USB outlets like everybody else. Needs more luxury like others in business class"
Cons: "Late flight connection"
Pros: "Great comfy seats, checking was a breeze and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment and I thought there should have been a little more food. What they did provide was good just a little shy on the quantity. INternational flight with no free bags."
Pros: "Paid a bit more for roomier seats up front and worth it. Seemed like newer aircraft with "leather" seats and better padding than the older aircrafts."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Customer service on TAP IS TERIBLE. Employees are apethetic and useless. Don't fly this airline ever"
Pros: "The ride was comfortable, and the crew was attentive and pleasant. I loved the fact that i had a 10 hour layover, and I could go out into the city and do some sight seeing. This is not to the Airlines credit per say, but it was super easy. I enjoyed getting off on the tarmac just 200 feet from the building, was a nice sunny day."
Cons: "The seats did not have entertainment system that I wasn't going to watch anyways. The seats did not have charging ports either (for phone or laptop), which several airlines now a days are making standard."
Pros: "The staff and no delays. Checking in , great customer services and she was vey efficient."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seats ."
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."
Cons: "Poor policy regarding musical instrument. Probably the only company asking to pay a special fee on hold or to buy an extra seat for a regular guitar. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing. Staff unhelpful and unorganized."
Cons: "They seem super unorganized. You wait on a line to check-in, then another one to board and then another one to actually sit down. I've enevet been on an airline that has such long waits."
Pros: "decent selection of movies and the tablet was nice to watch them on"
Cons: "Despite booking a vegetarian meal none was available."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional"
Cons: "The plan was delayed 2 hours, seats were beyond small."
Cons: "It wasn't at all the airline's fault, but this flight saw random searches at the gate of carry-on luggage + patdowns of selected passengers. I understand fully the imperatives for security, However it would be nice if there were some way to signal passengers that they might want to get to the gate early...... Fortunately I'd experienced it before (same flight out of Lisbon) and knew there was a good chance of a repeat...."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. It hurt my back."
Cons: "Being sat in a middle seat. With that being said, it was OK. No problems."
Cons: "No vegetarian meals, unless you request it 48 hours in advance. Seats are incredibly uncomfortable and the planes are old. Compared to the entertainment services provided on other aircrafts for other aircraft providers, the experience is abysmal. Bathroom was also not well attended."
Cons: "They keep us inside the bus trapped for more than 20 min, before boarding, very bad experience."
Pros: "Food. Movies. Recliner in business class. Assistance when i had a stroke in Portugal"
Cons: "No country music"
Pros: "Basically on time and the employees were very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Having to take a very crowded shuttle bus to the plane."
Cons: "baggage policy was different from the site of TAP!"
Cons: "Sandwich served was a bit bleak but it was served with a glass of wine!"
Cons: "Smelled badly of fuel"
Pros: "The price was cheap"
Cons: "Barcelona airport was a mess. They lost my bag with half of the plane bags and they didn’t even update the bag status online or call me when it arrived"
Cons: "Nicer behaviour from crew, smile is easy."
Pros: "Nothing. This was poor service from every stand point, starting from punctuality. Almost 2 hours delay and almost lost my connecting flight in Barcelona"
Cons: "Change management"
Cons: "Air conditioning at the gate"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. And the departure time kept changing. To the point that we had to run for the flight"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and styled with poise."
Cons: "Seat recline"
Pros: "Quick, cheap, and convenient"
Cons: "Like riding a park bench through the sky"
Cons: "For the price it's OK, its a low budget airline."
Pros: "They made up for lost time"
Cons: "Some turbulence and lack of communication between the crew and everyone else"
Pros: "Trying to be the worlds worst airline. They get my vote. With totally mixed up gates many missed flight. Airline didn’t care"
Pros: "The plane was newish, with comfy seats"
Cons: "The crew spend to much time on trying to order / heat / distribute food. The distribution of the staff seems odd - the one taking all the orders, putting stuff into the microwave and collecting it, collecting the money, whilst the other just seems to steer the trolley"
Pros: "Estuvieron ok"
Cons: "They asked me to store my suitcase in an overhead bin at the front of the plane as they had run out of space so I complied. When it was time to disembark, someone had stolen my suitcase. I have not located it since and the customer service from Vueling is horrendous - they keep running me around to different departments and sending automated responses, refusing to answer my questions."
Cons: "Pay for all, it's ridiculous for the price of the ticket"
Pros: "The flight was OK"
Cons: "It was delayed almost one hour."
Pros: "When check-in online I was given 1st row seats, as a result I was treated as an excellence customer. Great service."
Cons: "Delayed flight that was a connection and nearly missed my next flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was delayed with no reason and I missed my check in. I specifically purchased this flight vs the one at 10 pm to not miss check in. Ugh! 20 euro late fees. So, I paid more for the flight (because the 7pm was more than the 10 pm) and now I have to pay a late fee to check in. On top of that, I paid an additional service fee by booking though FlightNetwork and they did not book my checked luggage like the price breakdown said. It’s been terrible and a waste of time and money."
Cons: "Could not board at 1 PM to Amsterdam from Lisbon as plane was seriously overbooked. Had to go around the airport to get my own luggage and to get new tickets issues to Barcelone that night and then a flight the next day to my destination in Amsterdam. I lost 20 hours, much of that time to get my flight and luggage rerouted. No Vueling représentative at Lisbon airport! Compensation is not easily obtained through website as advertised. Worse experience in 60 years of flying 10,000 miles a year."
Cons: "Vueling agents gave 6 different conflicting times for the delay"
Cons: "The worst flight in my life"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no gate information till 18:40 - when flight was supposed to take off at 14:40 - then gate overcrowded by passengers from 3 different flights all to the same place. Crew members didnt know how to handle the situation and over 200 did not board the plane. However once taken to the plane lucky passengers had to wait outside on runway for approximately 40 mins as cabin crew also did not know how to handle the situation. Those with assigned seats did not get them and those with luggage to go in the cabin were informed there was no more space and luggage had to be put in the hold. We finally boarded the plane at approximately 8:40 but could not take off for another 2 hours where we were stuck on a small cramped space on a plane full to capacity not having eaten anything for hours with no idea of the progress of the situation. In conclusion I expect every passenger should receive a refund for not only the extrodinary 8 hour delay but for the mismanagement of the entire situation."
Pros: "On flight home, second lost bag of trip and second time of an extremely long wait, truly long long wait to report lost bag in Barcelona. So far, I have only one message for updates online about my lost bag. It always says "searching." I don't think they are though."
Cons: "Lost luggage. If they would let me speak with someone live, I could give them an idea where they lost it. Looking online, I see many comments that the airline has not. located nor compensate for lost bags."
Cons: "A bus ride is more comfortable than a vueling flight"
Pros: "On time professional crew"
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin online due to having an Australian passport, very odd and meant we got stuck in a very slow moving que!"
Cons: "I was told that my carry on luggage was too big for the overhead bin and had to pay 35 euro. The flight attendant attempted to fit it in the bin and it fit just fine. So thanks...I paid for something I didn’t have to."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but that was not Vueling’s fault. Despite the delay the staff did all they could to notify passengers and leave as soon as possible."
Cons: "One hour delay. Very long wait for luggage. Our outsize luggage was just dumped in a corner without anyone informing us."
Cons: "No space between rows, tiny seats. Even on a short flight the very limited space was exceedingly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great flight once I was in the air. Didn’t like the drama getting to my plane!"
Cons: "Everything WOW Air is a horrible aircraft company. Unprofessional from the beginning texting me before my flight regarding overbooking of customers on the flight. Late departure, and arrival. No entertainment on a long flight to a from Amsterdam. Layover in Iceland the plane than again was late with departure and arrival."
Pros: "Muy bueno y tranquilo el viaje"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"
Pros: "Left on time !"
Cons: "Could not buy a beer as they “ran out” of alcohol! Cramped seats and could not position myself comfortably as just no leg room."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "The music in the background was a nice touch to the flight."
Cons: "My recline button on the seat was broken and I was sat on the back seat so wouldn’t disturb anybody behind me, the person in front reclined and rightly so for comfort leaving me very little room. Felt a little closed in."
Cons: "The flight was unable to take off on time, which they did not communicate until after boarding. All of the passengers had to sit on the plane on the tarmac and wait an hour until we were able to take off."
Cons: "Took no responsibility for missed flight to NYC after flight from Barcelona was delayed. It took 3 hours in Gatwick airport to get rebooked on a flight the next day. Did not agree to pay for accommodation or food or transport for the 24 hour interval between flights. Terrible."
Pros: "Better than expected. Great all around. Would use them again."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went smooth and no problems at all."
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."
Cons: "Zero service"
Cons: "the flight was extremely late leaving Palermo which made my wife and I mis-connect in Rome. This was unacceptable since there were no weather issues. The plane was just a few minutes late arriving into Palermo, but it was extremely late leaving for Rome. There didn't seem to be any sense of urgency to get the plane boarded. People were boarding the plane up to 45 minutes after the plane should have departed. I will try to plan better and use Ryanair in the future."
Cons: "Was not what I expected when booking with British Airways. This low budget airline did not continue the level of service expected when I booked the trip. It was like riding a bus in the sky. #NoComplimentaryAnything"
Cons: "Very very small amount of legroom Flight was delayed c.90 minutes, there wasn't a lot of information and eventually were told they had to use a different plane, which may have explained it's quite poor old condition."
Cons: "It was an awful experience. They lied to us that the connection flight from Barcelona to Tel Aviv was canceled and therefore we must stay at Granada. They also said they could not fly us to Barcelona because all of the hotels there are full occupancy (sounds absurd). Only after we insisted on flying to Barcelona we discovered that the flight to Tel Aviv took place as usual. To this day, I do not know why an airline needs to lie in such an ugly way. Note that this was not a misunderstanding or language difficulties. The English of the airline team and mine is excellent. This behavior is dismissive, irresponsible, and embarrassing"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "Apparently Vueling, Iberia's cheap cousin, saves a middle seat in row 1 and charges more. A lot more! I was pressured in Helsinki into letting Swissair, the contracted boarding agent it seems, fill that seat, 1/2 of which is what you get for paying 'business' in a plane that has all economy seating. There was no logic or ability to board before economy and indeed my boarding pass stated economy. The woman that was added to the oversold seat got intoxicated and was half in my seat. I will never fly this again and it's not worth the stress to fight for some refund but I was taken advantage of with charging me a 300+ euro seat for this joke of a flight in a "better" level of service."
