Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Check-in Seattle was ill organized and folks cut and groused"
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew, economy seat was ok even if I’m 6’ 1”"
Cons: "Food was not very good, inflight headset available but very, very low quality for such a noisy environment and their own headset plug would not match the plug type of the entertainment center!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Maybe not have my luggage lost and get rebooked to a later flight for no reason"
Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."
Cons: "Make a flight for just for families or an area on the plane so we can all get some rest"
Pros: "Tv screens, free beverages, frequent service"
Cons: "The single most cramped and uncomfortable flying experience of my life. The chair in front of me recliner lined to 4 inches in front of my nose. Couldn’t move legs or arms for 10 hours because it was so tightly packed. I couldn’t believe it was legal to fit that many people that closely together."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "My seat was next to bathrooms when everyone start using it start smelling too much very uncomfortable sitting there. Food chicken was very salted, they run out of drinks 10 hours flight dinner served at begging no snacks or anything till 2 hours before landing"
Cons: "At least air fresheners in bathrooms or something better so passengers can sit comfortably"
Cons: "The flight itself was good. But the connection wasn't. For this schedule, it is next to impossible to make the connection. The gate that the SEA to FRA flighy arrives at is at least half an hour away from the gate that SEA to MAA leaves from and there is a security checkpoint in between."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly. The seats were new. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The scrambled eggs for breakfast appeared to be powered eggs, or overcooked eggs. The storage bins for the luggage were very small for the middle seats (aircraft was an Airbus A330-200). After several hours of flying, there was trash in the aisles and on the toilet floor. The toilets were dirty and not cleaned. Finally, the toilets ran out of paper towels and tissues with 3 hours to go in the flight, and they were never refilled. The flight attendants put a roll of toilet paper next the sink to use for your hands."
Pros: "Lufrhansa is a fantastic airline"
Cons: "The seat pitch and width were too small."
Pros: "Food was good but it would be great if we can select more options online before boarding the flight. Beverages were served without ice and you have to ask for ice cubes every time"
Cons: "AC in flight from Seattle to Delhi was at high temperature so we didn’t use any blankets or were not comfortable enough to sleep"
Pros: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."
Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom. They were well worth the extra cost as we were very comfortable."
Cons: "Seats are tiny and crews English was just okay."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and efficient. Flight was ready to leave on time but was delayed due to security concerns at Sea Tac airport; even though the flight arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not have a problem with anything."
Pros: "Food was ok. Beer offered at no charge. Lots of entertainment options"
Cons: "Plane was HOT no air and economy was unbelievably cramped and uncomfortable. 9 1/2 hr flight was torture"
Pros: "Flight attendants were personable"
Cons: "Both legs of flight were late"
Pros: "Cabin staff were pleasant and effective."
Cons: "I got a headache on the flight; it did go away until I got good air in Frankfort. Bathrooms were a bit low in number necessitating long waits. This has become routine."
Pros: "It was an overall good experience. Very well organized. Since both legs of the flight we're half-empty, it was easier on the crew too. They were nice and helpful. Everything very clean. Entertainment choices were good. Had an excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was kind of bland."
Pros: "The Entertainment, the Food and the nice and friendly manner of all personell."
Pros: "The crew was extremely responsive, inviting, and constantly walking about the cabin to see if passengers needed juice or water. The boarding, for such a large flight, was pretty smooth."
Cons: "The small screens for entertainment need to be updated. It took mine a few minutes into the flight before I could access all of the entertainment options. Additionally, the touchscreen was very difficult to navigate, as it jumped between non-responsive and too sensitive throughout the flight. Furthermore, the headphone jack should be updated, so that passengers can use their own headphones without an adapter. The headphone audio setup at my seat did not work very well."
Pros: "Loved flying business class. Great service! Flight was on time for departure and arrival."
Pros: "Lots of room on a 747 - Lufthansa will probably retire them all soon. They handled my special meal request online and loaded the meals on the plane."
Cons: "The crew didn’t bother to confirm who had requested the special meals, and they perhaps were confused by the size of the wide body rows, so they served my dinner to the passenger in the window seat (seat K) instead of me (seat H) By the time I realized what had happened, my row mate had eaten half the meal. The crew also rammed my knee with a beverage cart while I was dozing. Not the best showing ever..."
Pros: "service, good quick flight"
Cons: "late departure in Frankfurt; high noise level of the Embraer plane;s engines; failing AC in the cabin"
Cons: "There was light turbulence in some parts during the flight but the captain never turned the "fasted hour seatbel on" sign which was strange."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent, and entertainment was also very good. Most importantly, there was no delay."
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Fro dinner the quanty was very little. I weigh barely over 100 lbs, and l don't eat very much. Still even for me there wasn't enough, so I got hungry after a few hours. For breakfast the egg was rubbery. It was disappointing."
Pros: "The crew was super nice the flight was great no turbulence"
Cons: "Bad selection of food felt really sick after wards"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very helpful. She went out of her way to bring me a special tea. Large selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Food could've had more healthier choices. Also, kid-friendly food would've been a plus. Not enough leg room. Headphones were only working for one ear which is really bad for the ears. Air conditioning was really turned on really high and gave me a headache and the sniffles. I started throwing up during landing time. Horrible."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of personal space on plane. Couldn't eat my meals without rubbing elbows with the guy in front. Not enough room for my under seat bag."
Pros: "Big airplane and therefore no turbulence. Food was good for airplane food. Boarding was pretty fast considering the number of people. Didn't have problems finding overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Sat next to the bathroom and therefore repeatedly got bumped by people and carts as they passed. The stewardess was polite but had an obvious fake smile pasted on her face. A bit more honest facial expression would have been more comfortable."
Cons: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."
Pros: "Everything! Excellent stewards too!"
Cons: "You lost my luggage"
Pros: "The variety and ease of use of the entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding was not at all well organized. There were no instructions about what to have ready and the woman who checked our passports was rude."
Cons: "I really felt the food was not as good as I had on other lines. To help I had the chicken - and the veggies with it were mush as was the spinach with the egg dish - which also did not have much flavor"
Pros: "Entertainment options were incredible; great legroom in our seats."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was way too hot. Leg room was too small"
Pros: "COMFORT AND ENTERTAINMENT WAS BEST"
Cons: "BOARDING SLOW CREW A BIT RUDE"
Cons: "A kid next to me keep shifting and kick me and nudge me all the time. His dad was trying to stop him from moving too much but couldn't control entirely. I kept waking up"
Cons: "Food was not satisfactory compare to other airlines like BA Everything was excelent."
Cons: "Everything. No compensation given either"
Pros: "Lufhansa did a great job. During flights, everything was good."
Cons: "Security check in Frankfurt was terrible, violating all human rights in every possible way! Please don't tell me that it is for passengers safety; such a humiliation cannot be justified by any reason! Since Lufthansa uses this airport for the most of their flights, I would not fly with this company anymore"
Cons: "We were told by the Delta baggage handler that they strike one day each quarter. This would have been helpful information before we booked our flight from Kayak. We had to delay our honeymoon by 12 hours and fly into a different airport. Delta was great though and the Luthanza agent who rescheduled us was also great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. I bought the extra legroom seats and they were so worth it! I couldn't even tough the seat in front of me. Free wine. And the movies on your personal screen were all really good. Probably the best flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "The crew was especially great!"
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Pros: "The crew!!"

Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Pros: "Very good service, teh flight attendants made it as pleasant as possible, plane left on time"
Cons: "tough to sit on a plane for 9.5 hours"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, new plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food needs to improve. Pasta versus pasta is not a choice."
Pros: "The entire crew was amazing! Super comfy flight with complete lie-flat club world seats. Arrived into London feeling very refreshed!"
Pros: "Both the crew and the leg room are awesome!"
Pros: "Comfy seats, pleasent crew, good selection of movies and we got there on time. Bathroom was clean."
Cons: "Food was a little gummy and breakfast was a biscuit and a cream cheese filled pretzel"
Cons: "Long wait at the gate upon arrival at Heathrow."
Pros: "Kind crew helping a frightened passenger"
Cons: "Terrible, frightening turbulence and illogical birding. Why not bore back of plane to front of plane?"
Pros: "The movie selection was wonderful, as the amount of time with dim lightening"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane. It was too cold for summer clothing"
Cons: "There was a very large group of teenagers that were very loud the entire flight and disrespectful to crew and other passengers"
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "Great movies that were free!"
Cons: "The structure under the seats were set up super odd, so that my leg space was cut in half by a bar making it difficult to store my bag."
Pros: "Respectful and kind crew. Dressed well Love that they are still wearing a hat!"
Pros: "The food, the entertainment and the staff was super friendly"
Cons: "The seats should be more comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "Friendly people-excellent ammenitties-great flight. A new & improved airline from prior experiences."
Cons: "Nothing-all was great."
Pros: "Comfortable enough (but not a cm to spare); Splendid Entertainment choices, sufficient pillow & blanket"
Cons: "Lack of sufficient hydration offered; deboarding was a nightmare, missed connection, 4 hours late"
Pros: "Every flight was late. And then we missed a connection not because we landed late, but because they didn’t have a bridge crew. So we sat on the ground for 45 minutes awaiting a bridge crew. Invitee were re-booked on a new connection, but low and behold that was also late."
Pros: "All BA personnel were polite, professional and helpful. The dinner meal (chicken curry) was really good."
Cons: "I was jammed into my seat. Once the person ahead of me reclined, my knees were pressed into the seat-back for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great, both ground and air. Flight was on time and baggage was delivered efficiently."
Cons: "Could not get a cup of coffee. I can't believe you charge for a cup of plain black coffee. To add insult to injury, my credit cards (plural) were declined and cash was not accepted. I have not had any problem with my cards anywhere else on this trip, so the problem was not mine."
Cons: "Luggage did not make it to Paris pit on next flight which in turn was also delayed."
Pros: "no entertainment and small seats with a full flight"
Cons: "Quality of food"
Pros: "Eats are comfortable"
Cons: "We were on the ground for three hours before we could take off. I ended up missing my flight from London to Madrid and my luggage got lost for a day because they switched my flight."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Delayed due to inclement weather for 4 hours then lost the baggage"
Pros: "Flight crew was professional and kind! Food and drinks were free on the airbus. Roomy enough to sleep and got pillow, blanket, and free entertainment!"
Pros: "Everything was awesome! The food, the seat, the flight. My best cross-Atlantic flight ever!"
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."
Pros: "The crew was really nice overall and the entertainment system was adequate. The main meal was decent too."
Cons: "The flight was late (I was warned online but there was denial at the airport and gate) and further delayed in flight so I missed my connection. I didn't like the pods in business class. I had a forward facing seat at least, which are all by the aisles. They seemed narrow. I didn't sleep (never do). The breakfast was a bit lame. Getting into buses from the plane IS lame. It took a while to get to the terminal."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, it was very difficult for me to do all rearrangements."
Pros: "After flying internationally in business class for work a number of times, this was my first international flight in economy. Exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Second leg of flight ran late but no big impact."
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, good food and great movie selection. All flights on time!"
Cons: "Very crowded - seats are so close. I’m 5 feet 8 inches and normal weight and was squished!"
Pros: "So nice to be able to lie down fir the long distances. The food was quite good for airplane fare."
Cons: "Where do they get these movies? Surely there are good movies that are a few years old they could offer."
Pros: "Once the flight was boarding/ boarded it was seamless. The crew were more than happy to meet or exceed your needs with snacks/ meals, blankets and even drinks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1hr and 50min and the supervisor was less than accommodating even after my wife and I had told her we had 2more connecting flights this was going to affect. Due to the delay, we spent an additional $211 on flights and spent the night at the airport."
Pros: "Planes were new or well maintained."
Cons: "Confirmed seat selection does not actually mean confirmed. BA changed our seats without notice and stuck us in the back of the plane. There was no real effort to address the unexpected change. It also took the entirety of the 3 hour flight for the service cart to make it to the back of the plane. This was after a 2 hour delay during which they provided only sporadic updates. Overall, quite a poor experience which would make me hesitate to fly BA again given a choice of comparable airlines."
Pros: "more comfortable than the flight from Seattle - more leg room and larger seats."
Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "Food was not tasty, leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable,"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew Simple boarding process Good entertainment (when it worked)"
Cons: "Entertainment system failed partway through flight No hot breakfast"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No 'service'. No sign of crew. Screen didn't work. Not a lot for the money!!!"
Pros: "Great in flight entertainment and dinner!"
Cons: "No Wifi; not great for business travel"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, entertainment & flight info on monitor."
Cons: "Economy seating. Quite cramped.. I would make sure to book at least Premium Economy in the future."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work. Crew tried to get it working with no success."
Pros: "Seattle to London was wonderful in all aspects great service comfort and amenities."
Pros: "Spacious seating."
Pros: "Great meal service and goodies. Great entertainment, service. I think BA is the best airline to fly"
Cons: "I liked everything!"
Pros: "TV screen."
Cons: "short connection. 1/2 of luggages didn't make it. Same instance as on outbound flight"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "London/Heathrow arrivals had us going to gate A and through all the security and then we found after going through the security check (1 hr) we saw that the gate for Flight to Venice was B gates. We are not young people, but we aren't ignorant of travel. There was a lot of running around on our part with a lot of undue stress, when we didn't have to leave the E gates at all. There were no gate assignments posted when we landed until 30 minutes out while we were running back to E gates. There is no excuse for that, except we didn't know til the last minute where we were supposed to go after asking 2 people. Why the second check for security after the states on connecting flights? Is this new?"
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional, despite plane being absolutely packed."
Cons: "Food was really horrendous. Better off sticking with basics like frit, cheese, crackers, sandwiches, etc. If I pay extra for early seat selection, don't guilt me into switching with someone who didnt, because they didnt have enough leg room and had a bad leg. Situation was such that I couldnt refuse. So ended up paying extra for a really crappy seat. Seating chart should indicate where the metal boxes are that affect leg room in certain seats so those with a disability aren't seated there."
Pros: "Crew and choice of movies were excellent"
Cons: "Loading sucked. They couldn't keep those that are not boarding yet out of the way for those in the back of the plane to board first. Made one comment to the crowd and then gave up."
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, good food. Nice blankets and pillows, crew allowed 'quiet time' for sleep with no disturbing announcements. At the end of the flight, after people were getting off, they let my airplane-loving son and I look at the 'upper deck' of the 747 and my son got to sit in the captain's chair for a photo."
Cons: "Seats were cramped, no USB or power sockets, older seat-back entertainment screens"
Pros: "The attendant at SeaTac was very helpful and pleasant. He arranged better seats for my sister and I."
Cons: "We paid ahead of time for seats, but got better seats once at the airport. They lost my sisters luggage and trying to get this corrected was arduous. They did finally deliver it to our hotel, but a day later than we were told. During the flight, no one came by to pick up trash so we had to tuck it in the seat back pockets."
Pros: "The extra legroom in the Classic Package Seats."
Cons: "The snacks where a little on the dull tasteless side."
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: "Food is not really included and the seat DONT recline. But the crew were great and boarding was easy"
Cons: "More food , comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew very good nice fligth too"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable seats (the most ever) No personal tv/entertainment."
Pros: "THE FLIGHT WAS PLEASANT"
Cons: "I DIDNT LIKE THAT THE TICKET I BOUGHT DIDNT HAVE LUGAGE INCLUDED! I HAD TO PAY 100 EUROS FOR 1 LUGAGE. I COULD BELIEVE A LONG COURSE FLIGHT, A 10 HOURS FLIGHT AND NO LUGAGE! VERY ANOYING!"
Cons: "Incoming Delayed & outbound delayed 2 hrs as a result"
Pros: "The Tap flight was an hour late causing me to miss my connecting flight with Tap and my car rental. Attendant NO help. Sent me wrong place!!."
Cons: "Better flight attendants who know how to help. Never TAP again!!"
Cons: "Aircraft left an hour late after rushing us through the terminal. The cabin was freezing, the food was bad. 13 hours was a very long time."
Pros: "On time, very polite."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The boarding crew and gate staff where rude."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Long day. Did not inform you of what was going on. Changed gated not very clear."
Cons: "TAP was late getting the first flight out, offered almost no help and almost left 22 people stranded in Portugal and tried to get us to pay for a new flight at our own expense. Customer service was terrible. Multiple people in line said they had been stranded in Portugal by TAP airlines before."
Pros: "Great Crew nice plane"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, not enough space for carry on, due to luggage cost is way overpriced, as well as seats too expensive"
Cons: "The headphone situation was confusing and no charging ports Fairly comfortable for an older plane"
Pros: "Leg room. Help with connecting flight."
Cons: "Good was ok. Could have been better"
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: "I am used to traveling continents with other companies. There has always been 2 check in bags allowed with no extra charge as long as you are under 23kg on each. I get to the airport with my 2 bags ready, TAP tells me on large holidays, they only allow 1 bag to be checked to my specific african destination until January 11. And that one bag will cost me $120. They will not let me have the second one. Who does that? How much sense is this supposed to have. I checked with others and they do not do that. Never again they will see me."
Cons: "TAP's stupid rules against my destination. Not faire!"
Pros: "airlines could have mentioned that the second leg would require going thru security again and would take a very long time and that I should do this immediately after disembarking even though a gate had not yet been assigned. As A consequence of an intensive interview process before boarding the international leg of the trip (initially only two reps processing everyone on the plane for a few minutes each) the plane left the gate late. It also lost another 15 -20 minutes in flight making it 30 minutes late and I missed my connection in Miami necessitating me to spend a night in a motel and finish my flight the next day."
Cons: "Had the crew enabled me to be first off the plane I would have made the connection but I lost an additional 20-25 minutes being seated in the rear of the plane"
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."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was 1hr late. The airlines is not very good at updating the time the flight will leave."
Pros: "The better question is what did we not like."
Cons: "Careless staff, unorganized, rude, long lines with slow working agents. We were traveling with our three and six year old and started with a weather delay and then eventually a cancellation. We stood at the Barcelona airport from 7pm until 2:30am with our children. Nobody offered us food vouchers, taxi or hotel. We had to ask and only got a hotel which was an hour away and taxi on us costing us over $100 euro! Everything closed and our children ate cookies from a vending machine for dinner. Finally we got to our hotel after 3am and slept until 6:30am to catch another taxi on us back to the airport just to find out it’s delayed and we would miss our connection in Madrid back to Miami. We arrived the airport again at 9am and at 3pm we’re finally given food vouchers for our hungry children to eat something. American Airlines has a direct flight from Barcelona to Miami but they insisted they couldn’t do that for us and we’d again stay another night in Barcelona at a hotel. This would all be fine if we weren’t traveling with small children, they didn’t have school and we didn’t have to work and had extra money to pay for all the inconveniences. This was by far the worst experience we’ve had and will never choose Tap again for our travels!"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Late arrival. Had to run."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."
Pros: "No delays, food was good, crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "The A330 was old, seats weren't entirely in order, IFE was mediocre. Wasn't able to sleep well on the nine-hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Great friendly service. Very clean and organized crew. Nice plane, great flight crew. Comfortable seats. Free ear pieces and drinks for international flights"
Cons: "Flight was delighted and service staff was slow"
Pros: "The Magnum ice cream was a great touch."
Cons: "We thought that $35 per bag is a bit too much when other airlines are $25."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and well organized."
Pros: "The crew was very nice I have to give them credit for that and the entertainment was pretty good with recent movies"
Cons: "The food was really bad very unappetizing. The thing that was really bad is a day sprayed pesticides there out the plane before we took off and I feel like I have a cold now because of it my throat is really sore it's just a really weird thing to do to have the whole crew walking up and down with aerosol can spraying pesticides all over the guests."
Pros: "The only airline that makes me feel like a human being and not a piece of baggage. Very comfortable seating with good legroom for tall people like me. Attendants treat you with respect and are responsive to requests."
Cons: "Gate number was different from what was on my ticket and the tv screen at the original gate didn't indicate where the new gate was supposed to be. Don't need that kind of stress when traveling!"
Pros: "Flight was just crappy all the way. New airplane...seats d ont recline."
Cons: "Same as above"
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: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Boarding went smoothly, the food , beverage , and the entertainment was good."
Pros: "Nice little snack, horrible coffee"
Cons: "2 hour delay for a 30 minute flight. Really?"
Pros: "Some random charter flight with a 1960sBoeing. Although the ticket said TAP. Definitely wasn't"
Pros: "Aircraft seem well maintained and crews are very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess this time. The lady directing the boarding did not make clear where each group should stand. So The lady had to send most of us back which upset many. TAP should copy Southwest Airlines except self checkin kiosk are horrid no matter which airline uses it."
Cons: "My special meal request was not provided despite having email confirmation before boarding the flight. Also, my luggage was lost at the transfer of my journey"
Cons: "Boarding awful. Freezed in the cabin as "It's better for the crew." Flight overbooked - nothing was done to accommodate the people without tickets. They just put you in their next flight. They do not try to seat you with the other airlines! The board crew is hit or mis. Once on the continental flight I called for service from about the beginning of the flight- no one came to check why did I call for help. Bad service! Just before landing one of the crew members turn off my request sign without even asking me. So, no more TAP for me..."
Pros: "Great seats, service and above all meals were very good. On time, nice crew."
Cons: "The entertainment system on executive class is old and needs a refreshment to compete with other airlines covering this same segment (VOD is nowadays a standard)."
Pros: "Much cleaner/larger and better flight out of Milan to Boston. Weird boarding procedure. Took over 1/14 hours to board the plane. Slow!!! they do ask you to be there an hour prior to boarding beginning. The entertainment was fabulous and the food was much better. Had a hot meal and later a snack."
Cons: "The 8 hour flight took forever. From boarding taking over an hour (I admit it was a full flight), the TV sets didn't work. They finally got most of the TV sets to work but we could only watch one movie that has several glitches (restating the movie after 15 minutes and volumes had to constantly be adjusted). The good options were limited for a pregnant women (sordfish - high in Mercury, turkey sandwich - not supposed to ear cold cuts, and meatballs (I unfortunately dint eat beef). I should have opted for the vegetarian meal but I wasn't pregnant when I booked my flight and the crew could not accommodate me. Also I think the should have servered one more round of drinks for a ver long flight)."
Pros: "The crew at least he gate and the crew on the plane were very courtenous and professional. The food was very good -it wasnt the same old airplane food. The flight attendants constantly came around with water"
Cons: "The entertainment for the plane ride was not working for the entire plane-for a ling 7+ hour flight its not very comfortable/good."
Pros: "Nice and easy quick flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing."
Pros: "Some of the crew members were kind and helpful."
Cons: "My TAP Portugal flight on June 13th from Boston to Lisbon and then to Madrid was cancelled after having the passengers deplane twice. I was sent to a hotel (due to mechanical problems on the pane). The hotel was 25 minutes away (this is driving at 4:30 in the morning). It took an hour to return to the airport 5 hours later (at 11 am.). My flights returning to Boston were delayed the first for an hour, the second for an hour and a half. TAP Portugal clearly has significant organizational issues to resolve. I will never fly TAP Portugal again, and I will suggest to all my family and friends to do the same. My flight was not cheap ( a fact that I willingly accepted) but to have such an awful experience is unacceptable."
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever."
Pros: "Atleast 2/3 movies free"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment"
Pros: "How they gave me exit row seats and flifht crew was good"
Cons: "Your check in ticket counter workers in SEA airport.. there was a married couple who was very rude and because i could not get a "prepaid card" but had 25 for my bag the man said "well i guess you are not going" excuse me?! I paid over 200 for my ticket!! Luckily there was a nice polynesian young man who stepped in and helped right away. That couple made my experience HORRIBLE! I do want something done about that! I almost missed a very important event and they looked to be arguing with each other! They need to keep their personal stuff at home! I was so mad.however, the flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Delayed because of no crew members"
Pros: "Access to in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Air vent pressure was lacking Cramped quarters but it is expected in economy."
Pros: "Delays 2 hours"
Pros: "Good flight and good crew."
Pros: "Everything went by smoothly, no problems"
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Pros: "The seat itself was comfortable but the leg room for my taller companion was a bit tight."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight and on the outgoing flight not even a snack was offered. On the return flight a very small bag of spicy pretzel bits was offered. When I went to get on the return flight I had a small sling purse, a small yarn bag (both hung on the same arm) and a bag of food for the lunch they wouldn't serve me. I was told I couldn't get on the flight with 3 bags, even though all 3 would fit under the seat. The free entertainment contained a grey box over part of the image reminding I could pay for more. Was only given a tiny glass of soda, I remember when they would give a can. I will consider another airline in the future."
Pros: "The captain kept us informed, the flight attendants were simply amazing, going above and beyond to ensure the best flight possible."
Cons: "The plane was delayed twice. The crew members at the terminal did nothing to explain why. I do know that in their world things like this happen, but in the customer's world, things like this can really mess up someone's day, so simple periodic updates as well as one genuine apology for the inconvenience would have made things a whole lot better."
Pros: "The flight crew was great on both of my flights!!"
Cons: "I could not get the entertainment to work on either flight :-("
Pros: "Easy flight"
Pros: "The slim seats are nice, but lack the wired head rests!"
Cons: "The overhead lights were SO bright that they were nearly blinding. Also, I was sitting behind the wing so it was so loud! Guess there's not much to be done about that on a small plane."
Cons: "Late, deplane, staff was unhelpful"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "I am 5 foot 6 and my knees hit the seats in front of me. Seat did not recline. Sucked."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "I was seated in the economy section. It was quite uncomfortable for a four hour flight. I'm 5'9" and didn't have enough space to stretch in the 737. I felt bad for the middle seat section because there was no room at all. I had an aisle seat and still didn't have enough room the stretch. There was no food or snacks served but the crew did offer free drinks: oj, tea, water, or soda. if you can upgrade to economy plus it's definitely worth it. Spend the money for it. You will have more leg room for sure."
Cons: "One of two people bumped. I missed a ceremony with my father at the Naval Base due to the delay. We are both military and have had limited time together over the last two years. The $200 voucher does not cover the missed time I had planned with my family."
Cons: "It was cancelled morons."
Pros: "The flight at 7:10 am was delayed due to computer troubles. I had to be re routed because I was going to miss my connection flight in San Fran. I was able to be added to a Delta Flight direct to Philly at 11:45 am."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. Minimal customer service."
Cons: "Rude lady serving and no tv options"
Pros: "Beverage service"
Cons: "The seats were so narrow and uncomfortable that it was impossible to enjoy the flight"
Pros: "Being appeased lead to over a two hour delay. That lead to me miss my connecting flight & missing work later on that day."
Pros: "The flight attendant didn't address that someone else was in my seat when I got on the plane. I specifically picked two seats next to each other because the person I was traveling with has anxiety while flying. If other passengers hadn't willingly changed their seats then we wouldn't have sat together. I told the flight attendant and she dismissed me entirely. Also they packed is all in even though the exit row seats were completely filled. I think they should've just allowed some to have those seats for the comfort of the rest of us"
Cons: "It was very cramped. The chair barely reclined and it was very tight."
Cons: "There was so little space between our seat and the one in front of us that my boyfriend and I got no sleep on the red-eye flight. And I'm quite small!"
Cons: "Delayed, Late in landing, bad seats"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. The attendants kept trying to offer gift vouchers."
Pros: "I got to my place of destination in one piece."
Cons: "The customer service lady a check-in was very rude and had a bad attitude. She made me put my bag into the box thingy to see if it would fit on the plane. It was the exact same bag and type of plane being used but she made me put the bag in and out of this box and rearrange items only to have the bag taken from me at the gate. All bags of ALL passengers were taken at the gate. This unnecessary attitude of hers, making me lift and rearrange this bag in and out of the box to see if it fit caused strain on my muscles and lower pelvic region as I am 7 months pregnant! I was literally limping through the halls to get to/thru security and to my gate. Not to mention the frustration caused!!! The lady flight attendant on the plane was not able to help me setup my wifi and just shrugged her shoulders at me when I couldn't figure it out and pretty much said "oh well, guess you can't download it""
Pros: "The flight attendants were above and beyond. Both of them were very friendly and engaging. If all employees were on the same level as these two flight attendants everybody would enjoy their flying experience better. They are the type of employees that bring customers back."
Pros: "Check in was great. Crew was outstanding."
Cons: "Can't really complain about this flight. Was all around pretty good."
Cons: "I have handicape son and they didnt give seat together."
Pros: "I like the fact that they were on time for once."
Cons: "The entertainment sucked"
Cons: "Two flights both of which had long delays that were not weather or passenger related. Plane had sardine can seating."
Pros: "The crew was great and friendly."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room and the guy next to me infiltrated mine as well."
Cons: "That my flight was at 5:15am so I got there around 3am and no ONE WAS THERE TO HELP !! It took forever !!"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Everything this was one of the worse companies that I have ever delt with. Both in and out of travel. Customer service was completely rude and inconsiderate and the "supervisor" that hung up on out phone calls 3 times was completely disrespectful with our issue. I will never be traveling with this company again."
Cons: "Everything this was one of the worse companies that I have ever delt with. Both in and out of travel. Customer service was completely rude and inconsiderate and the "supervisor" that hung up on out phone calls 3 times was completely disrespectful with our issue. I will never be traveling with this company again."
Pros: "Cheap and non stop, free chargers"
Cons: "Allowed people to put personal items and carry ons in overhead bins which forced some to check bags. Internet option is useless without Hulu, Netflix support."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "It took forever to board, was completely booked. No snacks, no entertainment, jampacked plane with no leg room. The wi-fi was not working."
Pros: "I liked that it was a plane that flew me to my destination."
Cons: "The seating was tighter than I could handle. I'm a 6'1 175 lb male and I felt like my knees were going to pop out the other end of the seat. Like sure you try and maximize profits with a ton of rows, but you're going to lose customers like me do to the lack of space."
Cons: "I actually threw up on the plane is was so bad."
Pros: "When it was over."
Cons: "ran out of room for carry-on too fast - full by 2nd main group boarding"
