Cons: "Breakfast was disappointing, I would prefer something savoury. As another passenger commented ... "It was not worth being woken up for a muffin and juice." The entertainment was excellent, however the screen lit up repeatedly for announcements about an offer of connectivity while we were all trying to sleep. Those who had wished to avail of it had probably done so long before. It was quite annoying and intrusive."

Was under the impression i was paying for a British airline flight, not Aer Lingus - feels like a budget airline at a premium price - broken everything from chair to very poor seat design and situating, bathroom door was broken and was exposed to the toilet the whole flight -flight attendant service and attitude was beyond lousy. - never will i book from kayak or webjet every again."

Cons: "It was freezing cold in the airplane."

Pros: "The biz class seat was good."
Cons: "Disorganized / messy check-in."
Cons: "A/c was not working and is not the first time that happened on aerlingus....my question is do you do maintenance on aircraft??????"
Pros: "Clean plane & bathrooms"
Cons: "About 45 minute late in take off. The sound system for movie was very distorted almost not usable. I fly several times a year. My first time with Aer Lingus. This was not a good example of your profession"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled without a reschedule"
Cons: "This was the first time in my life that an airline lost my luggage. I finally got it back 2 days later but it was a very stressful experience."
Pros: "Everything was basic. I got an old plane so everything wasn't up to date"
Cons: "It was slow in taking off, not sure why but the plane was taxi'd for a long time. In-flight system and variety was lacking. Audio was poor. It did the job taking me to my destination but the great."
Pros: "Very professional, friendly, on time, food was fine"
Cons: "Took very long to retrieve checked luggage....from time we landed - to deplane, secure luggage, tram to long term parking and leaving lot took over 1 hour. Most of the time was waiting for luggage on turnstile...."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment selection. Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "So many unnecessary announcements. Repeated staff on board introducing pilot and crew members twice a well hour into a red eye flight. Lights were left on for far too many hours for a flight where most are sleeping. and they were extremely bright for the window seat. airlingus made it extremely difficult to get some shut eye."
Pros: "Comfortable flat seats. Nice staff"
Cons: "Gate agents were quite rude"
Pros: "You can never really go wrong with Aer Lingus."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours at JFK. Missed connecting flight in Dublin. Journey from JFK to Munich took 171/2 hours. Airline gave my a big $14 worth of coupons."
Cons: "TV and remote didn't work."
Cons: "There were 2 infants and 2 toddlers sitting directly in front of me and my newly engaged fiancé. They cried for almost all the red eye flight. 4 hours I believe it was. We did not get any sleep on the flight. We both normally do and it sets us up for the next day in Ireland. However on this occasion we did not and needed to go to sleep as soon as we got home in Ireland. It wasted an entire day for us not to mention the days to follow as our sleeping patterns were off. I understand Aerlingus could not control these crying babies however, when at the check in desk we asked could we receive 2 wing seats as opposed to the middle seats we had been assigned. The check in assistant could not do anything for us. Being from Ireland and living in New York I fly from the US to Ireland quite often. As do my family. This was my first experience with Aerlingus. One to forget."
Pros: "Quick flight,on time,no frills"
Cons: "Just the usual no frills from Aer Lingus who seem to think themselves better than the other irish airline when in fact,they aren't. Are Lingus should take a leaf out of Qatars experience"
Cons: "We arrived in JFK 1 and half hours in advance. Representative refused to check in! She says the door is closed. Ask us to pay extra $200 each to change another flight, which made us stay in Dublin for 11 hours for the connecting flight! Very terrible service and attitude, plus delayed flight. We will never fly with Aer Lingus again!!!"
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "Efficient, friendly service (no surly attendants)."
Pros: "I was a little afraid I was going to get an older seat configuration since SeatGuru apparently hadn't updated its seat maps for this flight. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find my Capt Kirk seat waiting for me (only 1 of 2 on the plane). Lots of privacy, lots of storage space. Throw in the free onboard WiFi for less than $1200 each way. Can't really complain. Short flight, but slept well."
Cons: "Breakfast offerings were meager. More tea options would have been nice."
Pros: "Spacious enough for transatlantic economy, though I wouldn't want to be going further than the US East Coast. Wifi was good. Plugs would be an advantage. Staff were great, Captain was informative, especially in areas of turbulence which was unusual and I'm sure was helpful for nervous flyers"
Cons: "The food was not good and there was not a lot of it. American, although a dreadful flying experience, make up for it (slightly) by constantly feeding you. You also have to pay for alcohol which seems kind of stingy when you're paying several hundreds for the flight."
Pros: "Boarding was well organized and the flight left on time."
Cons: "This is the first transatlantic flight I took where I had to pay for alcohol. I found that disappointing. Also, all the movies were old and no recent movies were offered. I would have also enjoyed some complimentary tooth brushes and paste, hot towels, and chocolates that other airlines offer when you fly overseas."
Pros: "Thanks for the new plane!"
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff."
Cons: "I was seated next to drunk, belligerent passenger who cursed me out when I politely informed her she was sitting in my seat. She was obviously drunk, too. She alternated between cursing at people, yelling about wanting to go home, crying, and trying to sleep on my shoulder. Only after she spilled her second bottle of wine (that she was allowed to purchase) did a crew member come by and offer her a new seat upon realizing just how much of a scene she was making. I couldn't get up out of my seat to tell anyone and was trying to get the gentleman across from us to ask the flight attendant for help. She was escorted away after sobbing and hugging me and then when the plane was about to land, she got back in her old seat and elbowed me awake so that she could curse about the flight attendants--who, with the exception of one nice one, were all rude and dismissive. I want a refund."
Pros: "Great Crew, entertainment, service and comfort. Nice that you provide USB plugs for charging devices."
Cons: "Paying for food. However the process of using debit card to pay for it was easy, but just not use to paying for food on a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "I liked the new look in the airplane that makes you feel like you are seeing the northern lights. I took pictures to send to friends. The flight attendants were very nice, helpful to reseat people in the airplane with so many empty seats available!!"
Cons: "This is an international flight and we should not have to pay for food and drinks. Icelandic Air is the only company I have flown with internationally that charges people for food and drinks."
Pros: "Everything on the plane was fantastic. I need to visit iceland now!"
Pros: "The hopsitaly was great!"
Pros: "If it means 2 free checked bags and a little more leg room, I don't mind Icelandair cutting free meals!"
Pros: "Complimentary christmas drinks and cookies"
Pros: "On time schedules"
Cons: "Pilots navigating a bumpy as hell ride"
Cons: "movie selection was not great."
Pros: "Boarding was egficient. Blankets were very nice. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Even on a transatlantic flight, no food was complimentry. The crew were at best ok, at worst unfriendly."
Pros: "Nothing much to like"
Cons: "Stuck inside the plane for two hours because no driving trucks were available. If we were at the airport of a tropical island I would understand but...we were in Iceland"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Weather did not cooperate, not airlines fault...."
Cons: "Even though we were not rushed between flights, our luggage didn't make it onto the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the food was good"
Cons: "On a first class seat in an over night flight I would like a seat that can be laid flat."
Cons: "The crew didn’t offer me a drink"
Cons: "Please provide good and reasonable price inflight food. Also seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great. I mostly slept through the whole flight, but they were very welcoming."
Cons: "I probably should have paid more for a more comfy seat."
Pros: "It was punctual"
Cons: "I was sitting in the middle seat"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "It was late causing me to miss my connections"
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 ."
Cons: "Wish there were more current options on the infotainment system."
Cons: "Cabin was very cold"
Cons: "The terminal at JFK was a nightmare. Crowded. Overheated. Filthy. And no electrical outlets anywhere."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "No spirits unless you buy. Bring food or you ll starve"
Cons: "we were late (can't tell if we left late or just arrived late, was sleeping), however connecting flights were 'held' (don't know what happened however we all seemed to have made the connecting flights)."
Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover. Layover was a bit more excruciating on the second leg."
Pros: "Seating was good."
Cons: "What appeared to be the cooling system leaked onto me from above the seat. The blankets were not new as there was hair (not mine--different color), dried snot, and what looked like dandruff on two blankets in the row."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very little space, no confprt Had to buy food on a very lpng flight. Movies were very old with little choice."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "I paid a ridiculous amount for it"
Pros: "Plane were clean."
Cons: "1. No Food service except water. 2. Flight was delayed. 3. At RFK airport no better directions. Not a good experience."
Cons: "It took three attempts to land. First Manchester, then Liverpool and finally (after declaring a fuel emergency) back at Manchester. Everyone knew a storm was brewing so why didn't the plane have extra fuel on board in case of a diversion?"
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: "nothing, but previously I've had great experience with this airline"
Cons: "They cancelled this ticket. I was unable to make a flight on the first ticket due to a business partner being ill (blood pressure issues). I then purchased a premium economy comfort ticket for the next day, also on IcelandAir, which was TWICE the cost of my original deal yet they would not honor my ticket. It really was quite disgusting and handled very badly. There was a medical situation that cost me far more than and then they would not honor my ticket to Manchester, so I had to fly WOWair to Bristol UK instead."
Pros: "Flight crew was really nice, attentive, respectful"
Cons: "Avoid if you prefer being able to sit down."
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: "Efficient and smoothe flight, on time"
Cons: "baggage delay due to? security breach at aircraft. 2 hours standing around, almost as long as the flight"
Pros: "Safe and pleasant."
Cons: "I arrived my destination 24hrs late. 2 unplanned stopovers. Terrible experience."
Pros: "All was smooth and comfortable. Thanks"
Cons: "Plane was too warm. Air conditioning was set much too high. Uncomfortable to us. No way to set air vents."
Pros: "Service was great and all went exactly as planned. No delays!"
Cons: "When we boarded in Reykjavik al was fine until the pilot announced that the bag sorting machinery was malfunctioning. We were told we'd be delayed while 18 bags were found and sorted by hand. Then it was 14. And an hour later, we left. Apparently it was still five. That is how many of us were still waiting at the carousel when all the bags had come off. I suspect Iceland Air decided that was an acceptable number and sent us on knowing that they hadn't found all the bags. I did eventually get my bag... six days later and after quite a few unanswered messages. That is partly because Iceland subcontracts list bag service to a company called THS, which again subcontracts delivery to a company called APC. All of these appear allergic to caulking US numbers. Iceland Air for the win."
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!"
Pros: "Check-in was efficient, and staff at the counter was friendly"
Cons: "No food for an international flight"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accomodating given the delays and the change of planes"
Cons: "The plane was delayed an hour and a half. They had to change the gate twice. The worst part was the plane. The original plane had a problem and they replaced it with a tiny everyday commercial jet for a 7 hour flight. It was extremely uncomfortable and I felt like I got a bit robbed because of how expensive the flight was."
Cons: "It was a mess checking in"
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent. At the end of the flight they let my airplane-loving son go into the cockpit, sit in the first officer's chair for a photo and even press a couple of control buttons (safely on the ground of course)"
Pros: "Crew pleasant, seat comfortable, flight on time."
Cons: "Food not appetising,no individual entrtainment."
Pros: "Everything went without a hitch!"
Pros: "Crew and boardin was very good"
Cons: "Food was terrible... The bread was so hard you could break your teeth, entertainment screen was from the 90s and aircon reminded me of the old days when they wouldn't function properly and simply blast freezing air!"
Cons: "I am tall and find all economy seats difficult not just BA, food was OK , not good or bad"
Pros: "Great films and no turbulence!"
Cons: "Too little space for stretching out and salty food."
Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Pros: "ON time Flight"
Cons: "Plane was late taking off, Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "The Check in LADY was amazing"
Cons: "On the flight they wouldn't offer me alcohol, even though the lady next to me had a mimosa?"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "HOT. The plane was 90% of the time. It would tease you just long enough to start to fall asleep, then bam! You wake up in a sweat. It was 9.5 of 10 hours of a low boil sweat. The most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Apparently a known issue, including the condensation leaks on people sitting next to the window. (Guessing that's why the A/C was left off.) Also one of the bathrooms was quickly out of service. Another would auto flush if you tried to sit down. And another the green light was on whether occupied/locked or not. So 3 of 4 in Economy had at least some kind of malfunction. The power tinting windows never responded to the buttons - assumed they were on master override. Finally, the seats were pretty compact. I would describe World Traveler on BA (aka Economy) more like the new compact Basic Economy offered on other carriers. Seats were very small and leg room consumed by some kind of service boxes. I'm hoping to all things holy that our return flight is actually an American Air flight instead of BA direct. Really afraid of another 10+ hours of torture."
Pros: "New plane and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "Had to pay for any food and drinks. No entertainment but very short flight."
Pros: "Comfortable on plane. Pleasnt crew"
Cons: "Boarding could be bettet done.. .miss the free drink"

Cons: "ba website messed up our meal selections. luckily the staff were nice and gave us something suitable."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice"
Cons: "Felt packed in like a tin of sardines. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "Nearly everything. BA is about 30-40% of what it used to be"
Cons: "I did not like the food"
Cons: "very very short layover at London, had to run to the gate and almost didn’t make it. Only one of our two bags made it to Dublin. Not happy at all. Not sure if I will be booking with kayak again."
Cons: "I did not like"
Pros: "Everything thank u"
Pros: "Good attitudes"
Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."
Pros: "Ease of booking flights and you get what you paid for.. excellent!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!!!"
Cons: "No leg room!"
Pros: "Loved the wide selection of movies to watch, as well as being served two meals."
Cons: "I wished the seats reclined more. The flight would have been near perfect then!"
Pros: "Reasonable comfort."
Cons: "Very slow baggage pickup at the airport."
Cons: "Missed connection due to delays on previous flight"
Pros: "Nothing was bad. Take off to landing was great. Red wine was"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Pros: "Good cabin crew and boarded direct from terminal via airbridge. Also good food in Club Europe for such a short flight."
Cons: "Slight 15 minute delay and miserly legroom in Club Europe - densification gone too far."
Pros: "First international flight. Did not know you are treated so well."
Cons: "That i am not able to sleep pn night flights. Not a problem of the airlines.Gail"
Cons: "cramped and very warm"
Pros: "I thought British Airways was a better airline. I hope they do better job to when I return back to my home next mointh!"
Cons: "The hour + delay leaving LAX AND DELAY again on landing"
Pros: "Capt informative pertaining to delay"
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks and food"
Cons: "luggage didnt arrive"
Pros: "What you expect on commuter hop, no problems."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Got me there"
Pros: "BA couldn't get our boarding passes to work no matter how many times they printed out new ones and we had to land into proper arrivals (though we were in transit in Heathrow) and tell five different groups of staff what was going on, even though it wasn't our problem but their computer glitch. One man at security was even rude to me, telling me not to just stand there. ( I had been told to stand there whilst they went and tried to remedy for the umpteenth time). When I showed him my disabled badge and said I would personally prefer NOT to be left standing for hours, he said 'so?'. It was a nightmare. It took hours and still wasn't sorted and in the end the immigration officers had to be called to the boarding area to allow us on the flight with non functioning boarding cards. It wasn't even our fault. REally upset about it."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and cheerful. No food or entertainment for the short donestic flight (as would be expected anywhere for a 50 min flight)"
Cons: "Boarding badly organised ... signs telling you where to queue are double sided and depending which side you see first direct you into the wrong lane... Left a bit late but arrived pretty much on time. Baggage didn't arrive after a 2 hour transfer and this is the third time in four times over the past few years. I strongly do not recommend BA as a domestic UK connection after an international arrival."
Cons: "smallest coach I have ever been in. very squished and I was next to my wife at 95 lb and a skinny young man who took no room at all. I am only 5'9" 170. But thats how the flights get so cheep"
Cons: "Nothing that was good."
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"
Pros: "When i got off the plane"
Cons: "Food was worse than prison food. It was a full flight and my entertainment screen did not work for half the flight from phl to man. Several times i was told its bein reset over the hours. Every other screen seemed to be working. I paid $1600 for this flight as it was booked a week beforhand as my mother got really sick and needed to be here. Honestly, never again. Over priced,horrible food and no workin tv. Expect more for the price. Will be my last time using them after years of doin so"
Cons: "Nothing. It was cancelled with little to none explanation"
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant on Christmas Day. Landing was smooth!"
Cons: "I booked in August to get the flight and seats I'd prefer. I paid extra to NOT get center aisle center seats, but that is exactly where they put us!! I should get a refund on that extra money I paid for those seats that we did not get. Also, I booked British Air and was put on American Airlines. I sure hope the seats home are what we chose and paid extra for. So disappointed. Feels a bit like fraud to pay extra for something and not receive it."
Pros: "Crew was really good"
Cons: "Other than the crew rest really bad"
Cons: "horrible plane for international travel. it was small cramped. Food was horrible. Not even a good full meal. Just snacks."

Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Cons: "Plane for a transatlantic flight only had the tv screens in the aisles with a single option. Antiquated plane"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Again, it was sold as a British airways flight when it was an American airlines flight."
Pros: "Got into NYC early which enabled us to make our connection. Flight attendant also moved us to a row with more leg room."
Cons: "Cramped seating would have been miserable had we not been moved to an exit row."
Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"
Pros: "Piolet tried to fly higher and faster to reduce time. Good job"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over hour. Desk crew could have been there to help us make decisions but were not. There was no one to ask about connecting flight gates. When we got off in philly there was someone to give directions to connecting flights. That was too little too late . If we had not on our own looked up connection gate and map of the airport andwould have had to stand in line to ask we would have missed our international connection."
Pros: "was a pain checking extra baggage. No one seemed to know what to do.. Apart from that AA was good."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants on American Airlines were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The American crew made a long flight comfortable and bearable"
Cons: "Waited 2 hours for take off."
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour plus delay in plane on tarmac then long flight with entertainment not working. Crew could care less."
Pros: "Half full so plenty of room to stretch."
Cons: "The plane was old. Seats seemed quite worn and didn't have the amenities (tv screens) like newer planes."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and I was able to sleep."
Cons: "I didn't like having retro entertainment with no options."
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."
Pros: "We got here safely."
Cons: "AA 767 plane is 40 years old, has ash trays, and uncomfortable seats. It would have been nice to have a newer plane."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Great flight overall. Crew attentive and helpful. Food and entertainment were good and available throughout."
Cons: "Planes were identified to have mechanical or electrical issues after leaving the gate for flight from Philldelphia and to Philadelphia. Things were ultimately fixed but with significant delays. Crew as very accommodating during this time however."
Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Cons: "The quality of the plane was a real shock after the excellence of the others on this holiday. It was impossible to sleep which was really needed on this particular leg of our journey. I asked if there was a spare pillow because I had a bad back and needed lumbar support. Also we paid a lot extra to book our seats and I could really not see why. I assume it was for the pleasure of sitting together!"
Pros: "The attendants were helpful and Kind"
Cons: "Prices, again."
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "no food"
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."

Cons: "I didnt get any of the benefits that are supposed to come with the American Airlines credit card. I never have."
Pros: "It was not full so there was plenty of room to stretch out. Food was very good! Entertainment center was excellent!"
Cons: "Seats were small and could of had more leg room."
Pros: "Appreciated that the cre didn't wake me to give me my landing card. They did make sure I got one though."
Pros: "Liked how on time the flights were."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Safe takeoff and landing."
Cons: "No overhead space for my carry on."
Pros: "I bought economy plus, so I had pretty good legroom"
Cons: "Airplane seats provide zero lower back support, and instead, they generally curve backwards, exactly the direction your back does not bend. It's been a week since the flight, and even though I kept trying to position a pillow at my lower back during the flight, I'm STILL very sore in my lower back. Airlines let you pay for more legroom. How about offering any kind of lumbar support?"
Pros: "Good to go"
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Like personal screens for entertainment."
Pros: "I liked the individual blankets, pillow and headphones on the chairs."
Pros: "Seats were spacious. TVs on the flight with lots of movies and TV shows. No delays, great service. Highly recommend it!"
Pros: "Wine and sparkling wine were better than anticipated, food was better than average;"
Cons: "I am pretty tall, so would have liked my legroom. Also, my luggage was lost, which is unusual. I had a 3h layover in LIS and did not expect luggage would be lost that easily."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Not being able to check in and pick seats until 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and warm. Wine is good."
Cons: "The seat doesn't turn into a proper bed. The passenger is inclined and not really laying down. The were also had bread crumbs from the other flight and the table compartment was filthy."
Pros: "Comfortable, nice flight. Lots of room for legs.Confortable leather seats. Nice food and drink options.Great flight attendants. Early arrival in Boston. Smooth and pleasant return flight to the US overall just like the flight going to Europe."
Cons: "Confusing non-European passport check with machines that did not work. Police officers did not help at all. They just waited for us to manage to go through automatic passport checking via machines and stamped our passports. Frustrating for the elderly people in line with us. Long, delayed boarding. Long wait to get luggage at arrival : more than one hour! Long wait at customs although we had landed early and there was no other flight than ours at first, but we waited so long for our luggage that there was an enormously long line because a couple of more flights had also landed. Overall an exhausting experience because of the wait at arrival. And we had a 2-hour drive afterwards... BUT this has has nothing to do with the flight which was great!"
Pros: "I was update each time there was a minor delay via email."
Cons: "Minor delays"
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was very quick and easy, flight wasn't too full, very friendly crew"
Cons: "Small breakfast snack of odd combinations (jam and cheese), seats are cramped even for a shirt flight, bags took a while to arrive"
Cons: "Seat space too small."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The clarity about baggage fees, really unclear and very expensive."
Cons: "The flight wasn't full but still had some people seated next to each other. Flights should allow for social distancing right now"
Cons: "Did you know the flight was changed?? It moved from Nov 24 to Nov 25. I was never informed of this change that was supposedly made in October.. Even you (kayak) didn’t know bc you still think I took the flight that I booked on your site! I was forced to rebook with another airline and will be expecting a refund and then some and possibly dispute the charge all together."
Cons: "We ended up with two center seats. Person in front put back her seat so I couldn't even fully unfold my service tray"
Pros: "Very happy with the service and seat comfort. Thank you"
Cons: "I was surprised by a $120 fee for luggage. I don't remember any indication from Kayak or from TAP about a luggage fee when I booked or when I got confirmation. Further, I found out that if I had indicated that I had luggage 3 days prior to checkin, I would have only been charged $92 saving me $."
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."
Cons: "Not missing our connecting flight because if flight / airport delays."
Pros: "on time, food was good"
Cons: "seats are hard, painful for 7 hours..... crew was very noisy, very rough they kept hitting my arm. male crew hit the back of my seat to wake me up, he took away my food due to me sleeping."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and room for pack pack under seats"
Cons: "A little too warm but not unbearable. We paid extra for seats together but did not get to pick them. We would have preferred a window but were in the middle 2 of 4."
Pros: "Movies and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food was not good Too much meat"
Cons: "I arrived 13 hours late, had two extra flights. I was delayed 3 hours first flight, 1.5 hours second flight after watching two flights that I “wasn’t allowed” to be on depart right in front of me at 9 and 10 instead of the 11 that they rebooked me on. Once I landed in Lisbon after the second flight that o wasn’t supposed to take. We missed the connection by 5 minutes and there were many people flying to my same destination. I had to wait 5 hours in Lisbon when I shouldn’t have ever went to Lisbon. I bought a ticket from Newark to Zürich through Porto 10 hours in total. I think TAP overbooked everyone and seated us on purpose. The secondflight was delayed due to “bad weather” and it was perfectly nice outside. Shame on TAP. I’m sure other people are complaining."
Cons: "Food was terrible especially breakfast"
Pros: "I’m taking offFlight was smooth and service was great."
Cons: "Flight was smooth and service was great. Long wait before taking off."
Pros: "Cancelled flight. Charged for bags even though we prepaid for them."
Pros: "Boarding, crew, timeliness, choice of entertainment, modern plane."
Cons: "Food could be more inspired, legroom is limited"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay!"
Cons: "When the flight was delayed the people at the desk did not make an announcement about the delay, what was causing it and what we could expect. People waiting had to find out through rumors. There was no good communication. We also were unable to choose our seat and were stuck in the two middle seats when there were free aisle seats still available. My controller for the tv didn't fit back into the holder easily at all and my husband got a blood blister trying to force it back in. Headrest to hold my head didn't stay put to give proper support while trying to sleep."
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Newark so we missed our connection in Portugal which was supposed to take us straight to Venice. Instead TAP gave us a replacement flight to Madrid and then from Madrid to Venice A FLIGHT WITH TWO STOPS IS NOT WHAT WE WANTED OR PAID FOR. Madrid was also delayed and we missed our connection to Venice. We got a new flight from Madrid to Venice and had to wait 5 hours for it. A trip from New Jersey to Venice ended up taking OVER 24 HOURS!!!! Due to the disgraceful disorganization and service of TAP PORTUGA we missed our best friends rehersal dinner a memory we would have loved to have. Extremely disorganized, terrible customer service OH AND WE HAD TO PAY FOR OUR BAGS TWICE to get reimbursed later but I don’t believe anything Tap Portugal says so we’ll see. Staff advice did not align and they were unapologetic for the experience we received."
Cons: "Everything. The travel experience was a literal nightmare and not what we paid for. It’s criminal actually."
Pros: "Given the weather in the UK we were expecting delays but we were pleasantly surprised! It was one of the smoothest journeys we have ever had from leaving our hotel to getting home and TAP featured highly in this. We even landed 35mins ahead of schedule - amazing flight with lovely crew."
Cons: "If I have to be picky I would ask that the crew on board speak more slowly when providing inflight information, particularly when English is not their first language as us oldies have difficulty understanding what is being said."
Pros: "They solved the problem of my sit. But i almost have a hurt attack"
Cons: "When I get to check my tickets they told me that I was in stand by. I have to fight to get my sit."
Cons: "bad experience- The personnal was not that good! Lack of manners! Bording was evryone for himself; people with children left behind, evryone got in, all at once. The food was very bad, usual it is good..I dont know if i would fly again with TAP"
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential."
Cons: "My wife and I arrived to the airport for our honeymoon extremely excited. We had been saving for our trip to Italy for months, and we were finally going to get things started. Everything fell apart when we went to check in and we were told that my wife couldn’t use her ticket because she had changed her last name. We were told that there was no way that the name on the ticket could be changed because of TSA regulations. Of course, we were also told that we could have changed the name had we purchased a more expensive ticket. In other words, we were lied to and told the issue was regulation, when really they wouldn’t help us because we couldn’t afford a more expensive ticket. The only help we were given was the pleasure of paying over $1,500 more to get my wife on the flight. I am in the process of trying to get this refunded, but as of now we have paid twice for my wife to fly, and neither ticket has been refunded. We may have accidentally broken a rule, but the only function that rule seems to have is to make us pay twice for the same seat. As of now, I would never fly this airline again, and I would warn everyone away from it. I will update this post if TAP does the right thing by two honeymooners."
Pros: "Meal was OK."
Cons: "TAP changed our seats even though we had paid extra. They were narrow and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Friendliness flight attendees Service on board Equipment/ tv Food beverage service Language skills of flight attendants"
Pros: "On time and waited for our connection from Miami without any fuss"
Cons: "Comfortable seats but very luttle legroom"
Cons: "Poor entertainment"
Pros: "I liked being able to exit the plane at the end of the flight"
Cons: "The seats were cramped and it’s upsetting how you can’t select your own. Flying overseas for 7 plus hours it’s best not to be sandwiched in between two strangers, some of which were vomiting the entire flight due to turbulence that the pilot announced would only be minor."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Had to wait forever to find out Gate Number."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No VOD No food available in between meals"
Pros: "I got to London"
Cons: "9 hour delay"
Cons: "My round trip ticket was purchased and in the confirmation it stated that it included one free checked bag. i also went online to reserve a window seat which cost 12.95. When I got to the airport I was told I had to pay 110 for my one checked bag as well as they had moved me to an aisle seat. Basically scammed me out of 122.95. I have complained with ygthe airline and if it is not resolved I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "On time, clean airplane, polite air crew and a sandwich and soft drink."
Cons: "There were no power outlets"
Pros: "If your traveling with a child they are the best! Legroom was good, seats were confortable, and entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible but I guess I'm lucky the served it. Didnt like that they changed the baggage policy after I purchased my ticket and wouldnt honor the old."
Cons: "The monitors did not work."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good info on delay"
Cons: "No offer of coffee in businesss when woke up. Still 35-40 before landing"
Pros: "Some staff were helpful"
Cons: "To start off our trip we weren't allowed to get on the plane until an hour after our boarding time. After we were allowed on, the air conditioning was not working and continued to sit on the tarmac not even leaving our terminal for another two hours. Within this two hours there were many elderly people asking for help and one specific gentleman whom was in his late 70s, informed the people around him that he had a pacemaker was pleading to get some air conditioning to the point where 6 people on the airplane were fanning him off. It was 90 degrees in the airplane and we had been sitting in the plane without any help even pleading with the attendents to let the elderly off so they did not pass out. Once we reached the 2 hour mark without any ac the gentleman in his late 70s was beginning to lose consciousness and many people had to call the emergency services, and the crew on flight TP214, tried to tell us everything was fine while the plane was pulling away from the terminal ... as they were giving the man oxygen, even though the elderly gentleman had lost the ability to communicate verbally and was about to pass out. They had to pull the plane back off the tarmac fully delaying us 3 hours in the process making us miss our other two flights. Once we were finally in the air for the 6 hour flight our entertainment system was not working so we were left to twiddle our thumbs for the remainder of the trip. It really ruined what seemed to be an exciting trip and I highly doubt we would ever take TAP Portugal ever again or recommend it to anyone no matter the price."
