Pros: "Great helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Checking our bag was a nightmare. All bag check-in was at kiosk which we couldn't use because we had to pay to check our bag.

Cons: "First, they announced that they need some passengers to voluntarily give up the booking in exchange for 280 refunds (a slightly higher rate which not worth to do it) and 1 stopover the fight to Rome which will arrive at 22.00 instead (our flight is 17.35). About 15 minutes before boarding time, they announced flight delaying. Around 17.45, they announced gate changing from B to A which located at opposite side of the the airport so all passengers run there because of everyone afraid that their booking might be canceled because no one agrees to give up. At both gates, many people try to jump in the queue which no staff comes in the manage the queue. During waiting on the board, the air condition seems to be closed, hard to breathe. Around 19.00, the plane took off the Zurich airport eventually, finish the 1.5 hours delay. The captain announced that it cause by the technical problem of the flight earlier but my thinking it cause from over-booking."
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."

This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."

Pros: "Meals were excellent and filling! Crew was conscientious and responsive. Plane was very clean. Very impressed and would fly with SWISS again over any other airline."
Cons: "My seat didn’t recline properly, and it wasn’t fixable, so it felt a little claustrophobic with the person in front of me fully reclined the whole flight."

Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There was a one hour wait to get through passport control and go to the gate beyond the security check point."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal and did not get it. The seats are very uncofmfortable. When the one in front puts their seat back it goes almost in to the face of the one behind."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The business class seats were just like the economy class, not wider or extra space, only an empty seat in between, not worth the money. The first flight from Cairo to Zürich, no meal or snack was offered. Very disappointed in Swiss business class"
Pros: "I love the fact that there are no communication barrier...everyone that I spoke to knows English!"
Pros: "The crew members were professional and we really appreciate their high quality of service. Love the food and we enjoyed the wide selections of entertainment that was provided."
Cons: "Lack of screen for watching movies."
Pros: "Everything was great. The staff did a really nice job at making us all feel comfortable and they were eager to help with our needs."
Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Pros: "non stop food was a great distraction from being on plane so long. Loved blanket and pillow and having own TV. Service was constant and the crew were so wonderful! I would be delighted to fly swiss air again."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized but I am sure that is no fault of your own."
Pros: "Good service inflight"
Cons: "You have to pay for second piece of luggage flying from US to Asia. Most airlines allow two pieces for these destinations even for economy class."
Pros: "fast boarding, great crew."
Cons: "when is SWISS going to change serving something else rather than this chocolate bread during morning flights?"
Pros: "Everything was great.... The food , crew was fantastic , nice friendly stuff ! Very happy with the flights"
Cons: "Well not really! I can only say negative things is the seats but is not Swiss is all airlines !!! Zero space for your legs"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment. Food was great!"
Cons: "There was no indication of what line went where while in the boarding process. Nobody told us that we needed to get a blue stamp (??) on our boarding ticket, for what I still don't know. So then we needed to get in ANOTHER line and get the stamp and then stand in line AGAIN just to get on the plane! For being Swiss you'd think you'd have this part down AT LEAST! Boarding by seat number would have been a better idea. Everybody was all over the place getting their bags stored above."
Pros: "Everything is excellent"
Cons: "Boarding procedure for business class with being held up in a small holding space"
Pros: "Excellent flight staff and better than average airplane food."
Cons: "If one is over child height and the uncaring person in front of you slams their seat into full recline, one will be miserable on steroids. Swiss Air will not correct the small free space capacity (both pitch and width) most assuredly. Thus, I now fully appreciate why fellow travelers embrace airplane knee protectors. "Don't leave home without them," especially on Swiss Air (emphasis added) !"
Pros: "The staff were very attentive, there was a free meal - a nice quality (fresh) panini with chicken ant then they came around with beautiful swiss chocolates. best experience on a short flight."
Cons: "not enough leg room with black metal boxes where our feet should go! food was discraceful, especially coming from italy, the calzome was an insult. i dont expect gourmet, but this was inedible. the rest of the meal was also not good. seats were visibly discolored because old and icky. old plane, really loud engine background noise. . . staff seemed unhappy. I think as a rule that if the staff notices some uncourteous person reclining completely in coach and there is someone behind them, especially if it is a person with longer legs, that they might nicely suggest to that reclining person that they are rude and should recline less. the staff on this plane did nothing of the sort for several violators of this type"
Pros: "The extra level of Swiss security at the gate. The highly professional cabin crew. The inflight food service was well above the norm. The demeanor of the flight deck crew was exceptional. I'm going to try and fly Swiss whenever possible now."
Pros: "Online check in did not work at all despite being a member. Could not get my seat which was super annoying. The desk person said my bag was too big despite being carry on size. He offered me business class but I wanted a window so I was further back. When I got on the plane I told the cabin crew I'd been offered row 3 and decided I'd rather be there and they acted like I was nuts. Not I,pressed."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. A man fell ill during the flight and was carried into first class be the crew. There were screaming little kids placed all over economy with parents that did nothing about their high pitched screaming and I do mean screaming and screeching as a form of communication. There was only one much younger child that was in real distress and the Mom and Dad walked up and down the aisles trying to comfort that child and not disturb others passengers. The rows of seats were so close together that when the person in front of me reclined, I could not. get up from my seat and it was on the aisle! The young man sitting next to me just stood on the seat to climb out. We could have made an earlier flight, but the manger of the reservation desk in Tel Aviv was too lazy to check to see if we could switch to the earlier flight was easily make able with lots of seats, but I couldn't do it on line and she was busy talking to her friends. As a result, we had a 6 hour lay over in Zurich that was unnecessary."
Pros: "Boarding is always a bit confusing as I stand around unsure of when to board. The crew is very courteous and professional and even on a short flight the food is great, especially the chocolate."
Cons: "The entertainment was not great but it was a very short flight."
"Well I guess more flexibility from terminal to terminal and close to the gates. Thanks"
Pros: "The seat wasnt comfutable"
Pros: "Helpful crew Good food"
Cons: "Our luggage came back damaged and open !"
Pros: "The crew is brilliant Punctual, spot on... 100% service delivery"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and professional"

Pros: "Respect and politeness of the staff"
Cons: "Wi-Fi is not available on all flights also is easy to download the fllynet"
Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Airbus 330 from Manchester to SFO was new, spacious and very comfortable. One of the best flights we’ve had across the pond."
Cons: "Transiting at Manchester between our Frankfurt to SFO flights was dreadful. They made us go through security and the inspectors were so incompetent they caused a huge back-up. Took an hour to get through. Avoid Manchester. Then they lost my luggage...still missing after a week."
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Pros: "The entertainment selection is quite great."
Cons: "The food is terrible. So is the crew. Something has gone wrong with Lufthansa latel. I used to prefer flying Lufthansa for their great service and meals. The food has become quite disgusting. The crew is very rude. They show no respect to their non-German speaking passengers, which is unacceptable!"
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Pros: "Literally one of the worst check in experiences I have ever had traveling"
Cons: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Cons: "Highly recommended for efficiency"
Cons: "I was trying to extend my ticket but no one was answering my call last 2 days so I misssed my flight no refund nothing"
Cons: "The Cabin seating"
Cons: "40 minute delay in departure due to late arrival of incoming aircraft."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "on time, great cabin crew"
Pros: "Overall once on the flight the service and comfort were very good. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Always had a smile and made the flight enjoyable. We specifically picked this Airline for its service and reliablity"
Cons: "The checkin and "Automated" Baggage Check were a disaster. It took us a full 2 hours to check our bags and get to thru security and our gate. We were practically running to get to the end. The layout of the airport is very tough to get from point A to point B. Walking a long distance with multiple security checks. On top of that, the plane was almost an hour late boarding and then taking off. It was a mass of people with no way to cue for an orderly boarding process. No instructions or info given to allow us to go get something to eat or drink prior to boarding."
Cons: "Lufthansa warse company ever fly with . everything was bad . delay like two hours , food only meat because No enough chicken and No socks to warm my foot because I was feeling cold ."
Cons: "Manchester Airport couldn’t organise a bus to take us off the plane. Stuck on a landed plane for ever."
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless. Needless to say- our luggage wasn’t in Manchester when we arrived. Had to travel back to Manchester to collect it 8 hours later as it was left in Munich. Not happy one bit"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."
Cons: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."
Pros: "Keeping in mind it was an economy class, I thought the flight was fine. Decent food. I would have preferred some with a heavy cheese sauce. I had gotten sick in Egypt and I felt lousy (dizziness and headache). Despite my physical condition I thought the flight was okay. Crew were professional and airplane was clean. Beer to drink. Other than the fact I was sick, I enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The dinner option was okay. I felt the heavy cheese sauce pasta was a bit too rich. Other components to the dinner was fine."
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "Both parts of flight was superb n/a"
Pros: "Good connection time and easy to get through security"
Cons: "Passports had to be checked and it delayed boarding. Everyone was frustrated"
Pros: "Generally the whole experience with flying Lufthansa was a positive one. Comfortable seats, good leg room, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Nothing really other than we were late leaving/arriving and such a much reduced time on the layover in Frankfurt"
Cons: "Missed my flight because the baggage check in closed, but what bothered me was that the attendant did not give any solutions or help, just coldly said “you can’t get on because you can’t check in your bag” and continued to tell me that I should just throw my luggage and all my things away to at least check in and get my body on the plane. I felt like I had to coerce her for help or advice on what I should do with my situation and she didn’t really give me any beneficial help until right before my gate closed and my plane departed. As customer service, shouldn’t they offer help without having the customer feel like they need to convince the check in attendant to give them alternate solutions?"
Pros: "Service, friendly crews. Everything."
Cons: "Simply the best.Thank you."
Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "I am very happy with my flights. I would recommend to friends and family. :) Thank you"
Pros: "The sandwich and wine were nice...and prompt, too"
Cons: "Was told to check in at wrong desk by databoard. This caused delay..."
Pros: "Best trip and crew that i ever had"
Pros: "Changed planes, flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "By the time my daughter got through security the gate had closed and her ticket didn't allow for any opportunity for her to get another flight. Would not book again using Lastminute.com, nor Lufthansa, as they provided a lack of service and no help for her to change her flight - even though the ticket was nearly €200 and she was clearly distressed and upset."
Pros: "Decent flight. Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "We booked these flights expecting Lufthansa. Little disappointed to learn they were Brussels airlines. Inflight entertainment options and meal options don't seem to be as good. Flight crew was pleasant and fine. After learning it was Brussels airlines I went through their check-in process for families and requested kid-friendly meals, but nothing came of it. Slightly disappointed."
Pros: "Overall, was good!"
Pros: "The water and small coffee cake was nice to have on this connecting flight."
Cons: "First, I had issues with checking into my flight online, which lead to me having to print my boarding pass at the airport. Since I had a separate flight with Eurowings that sent me from Munich to Paris, which was not connected with this flight, I came in directly into the airport and no where near a Kiosk to check in or print out my ticket/boarding pass. I explained to numerous employees my situation and they casually exclaimed I should be able to make it in. Once I got into the airport I could barely get through security since I did not have my boarding pass. I kept explaining I don't have a boarding pass because I could not check into my flight to obtain it. Then when they finally let me through with only 10 minutes to spare before my flight's gate would close, I finally reached the boarding desk only to be told I had to wait because out of the two men who were scanning boarding passes, they were too busy to help me. I then had to explain three times that I had already paid for and booked my flight, however, I could not check in online and was having an issue with an error that stated I was missing information, even though there was nothing marked in red or anything marked to edit, so each time I tried it denied me. I also tried calling for customer support and did not get a hold of anyone because the lines were too busy. After explaining all of this to the man at boarding, he made me wait an additional 5 minutes before helping me check into the flight and print out my boarding pass. I was treated like a stand-by customer and I did not appreciate it since I paid for this flight and tried to check in 24 hours prior. I was expecting much more from Lufthansa, as my boyfriend recommended this flight company to me, but I was extremely disappointed in so many ways it makes me question whether I want to fly this airline again for future trips abroad."
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "no major complaints"
Pros: "Got two meals , very good service"
Pros: "When my traveling companion suddenly became acutely ill the flight attendants stepped right in and assisted him to an available Business Class area where he could be cleaned up (including changing his soiled shirt to a clean one from the 1st Class supplies) and made more comfortable. They checked on him frequently during the rest of the flight and made arrangements to get us assistance off the airplane in Detroit and through the crowded airport in record time in order to get him to the ER as soon as possible. We are so grateful to them for their caring help during what could have been a very embarrassing situation."

Cons: "Nothing, the experience was great."
Cons: "Ii was not allowed for me to board because the Agean staff is not coached properly do understand what the documents needed to pass Russian border. My arguments that I do not need any visa was not even listened. They were too lazy even to call to Moscow to specify the rules. 6 hours later they bought for me ticket for Aeroflot to SVO with Aegean cash with their excuses, but I lost my plans including two meetings in Moscow anyway."

Pros: "Efficient way the flight was boarded. Crew was pleasant overall a good flight"

Cons: "No inflight entertainment, but for 90 minute flight, I didn’t need it."

Cons: "Gâte operator were very slow I was going to loose my connection to Paris as it took me more than 1hour to make the check in"

Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "I was charged for the bags. I didn't know that I was spouse to pay for the bags since the itinerary doesn't show clearly what type of ticket I have!!"
Pros: "Not much. Used to be friendly, comfortable airline. "Efficiencies have taken their toll""

Cons: "They kept the lights on the entire time on a 11PM 4 hour flight. The cabin temperature was very warm and not much room in each row."
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."
Pros: "Timing and cleanliness"
Cons: "Delay 1 hour and 20 minutes at departure"
Pros: "The attitude of the staff was awesome. They give you a piece of candy when you sit down. Flight was on time. They actually appreciate your business. Highly recommend. The complete opposite of Norwegian Air"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient but we sat on the plane for over an hour before leaving. Then when we deplaned, we were not told that we are not connected to a tube and would have to go down stairs to go to a bus which will bring us to the airport. The weather was blistering cold ! The same taxi in and out delay happened on the connecting flight to London and we arrived London at 2pm instead of 10:30am. Food was mainly carbohydrates. Entertainment was absent except for a screen showing a trailer of featured locations in Athens."
Pros: "We were well looked after on both flights...My husband needed wheelchair assistance and the staff at Athens airport could not have been more helpful.."
Cons: "The actual booking for the flight was most confusing.I book flights on various other airlines and they seem more straight forward than Aegean .So much so I only found out the day before our flight that we had,nt booked our suitcases in and it needed a phone call to Athens to sort it out"
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "The fact the passenger behind me needed me to sit up straight so he could eat mad me feel bad. I suppose entertainment is not a big thing nowadays with all the choices we have with smart phone's and tablets, so not so much a big deal. But with space itn is a big deaI. I reclined my seat and Icould feel my seat on top of someone's knees. So i sat up and struggled to sleep. I suppose in a sleepy haste I reclined my seat. I was awaken to a gentleman asking me to sit my chair up so he could put his tray down to eat his dinner. I felt horrible."
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "We had a technical problem after take off and our flight needed to return to Athens airport. The Captain assured all the pax this was not a safety related issue, and a fresh plane would be ready for us when we landed in Athens. After landing in Athens at a remote gate, we were bussed to the terminal, waited for no more than 10 minutes to another aircraft to make our journey to Paris. As we got on the bus to go to the new aircraft we were handed a letter with apologies for the disruption. In this letter we were offered a free flight anywhere within the Aegean Airlines network, valid for 12 months. I thought this was great customer recovery. The same technical and cabin crew took our new plane to Paris and we managed to make up a reasonable amount of time delay. This was an unforeseen situation handled very well. Well done Aegean."

Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Luggage at baggage claim took longer to receive than the check in and flight combined"

Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "The airline didn't warn that the ticket doesn't include luggage. Other airlines do. Also no word about it in the tickets. Even airline representative wasn't able to find any mention about no checked in luggage. Ticket price was twice more expensive than the lowcost ones. For me it felt like a scam. Especially they had very few passengers and it seems they're doing this intentionally"
Pros: "Very kind people- I'm traveling with a broken leg and they blocked off a row of seats so I could keep my leg up for the flight!"
Cons: "The whole plane stunk of body odor and urine. It was overwhelming. The bathrooms were filthy and the water didn't work."

Cons: "Somehow, ticket was not being accepted to board on TAP's flight. Crew had to manually check it"
Pros: "Thé crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "I use Air PORTUGAL twice a year. I can’t understand why they took our three trolley to put them in the baggage hold while they have enough space inside the plane. I would like to tell you that food is always awful in TAP AIR PORTUGAL flying from Dakar/Lisboa/Dakar. No respect for the passengers."
Cons: "Organizing the boarding. The food was a disaster and the seats was a joke, the most uncomfortable plane I’ve ever been on."
Pros: "The crew was good and went out of their way to help the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment could definitely be better. Newer screens, and more options."
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."
Pros: "Plane was clean & crew were kind"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive, there was a delay to boarding and departure but they were very apologetic about it. Service was attentive on the plane and bags promptly delivered at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "I upgraded at the airport to Executive class, which is really a bit of a scam to be honest. It’s just the first two rows of the plane and the middle seat kept free... the seats were no different to economy. Not worth the 109€ upgrade fee."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional. Airplane was comfortable and very spacious. Food was awesome."
Cons: "Really need to look at a more efficient way to board the passengers. Was pretty chaotic and the gate was way too small for so many people. Feel like the passengers with carry on luggage were thrown to the wolves while those with backpacks were treated way better."
Pros: "Encouraged to take the pillows home they were nice"
Cons: "Headphone jacks that work would have been nice. 6.5hr flight without sound! The crew disappeared and would only give half cups of water when asked for. ALCOHOL not just wine and warm beer."
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: "There was a major problem with my booking and I went through almost 2 hours or stress thinking I would not be let on the flight. This has never happened with Kayak. But it was really bad. TAP insisted they could not book me on as Azores Airlines from Pinta Delgado to Toronto was not booked for me. I had to call bothe airlines. With no help from the desk. I finally got both to confirm and at the last minute was allowed on the flight. I chose this route to have a nice couple of days in Portugal and I will have. But the flight start was really upsetting."
Cons: "I like Kayak. But am very concerned about booking through in the future with this treatment."
Pros: "TAP serves edible cheese sandwiches. First time in years I eat plane food and don’t immediately regret it."
Cons: "I travel with an international carry-on designed to fit in comoartments above seats in any and all planes (Tumi alpha 2 International), and yet TAP would claim it was too large to fit and forced me to check it. My problem is not only the wait once we land, but most improtsntly that the bags are beat up in the journey. Indeed, my carry-on arrived with several scratches on the plastic edges as well as some signs of worn on the textile. Because of this carry-on baggage size restrictions, I will not fly TAP airlines again (unless I can travel with my hand purse only)."
Pros: "Overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Entertainment pretty bad. Boarding very disorganized, takes way to long, getting on and off. had to show Passport and boarding pass way too many times, inefficient. Seat was more spacious than going, but not much padding for long flight. No air control No safety demos"
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 flight crews were polite. The short flight journey included a simple light lunch with drink."
Cons: "The flight departure time was delayed for one hour."
Pros: "I travel for pleasure a lot and this was my first time flying TAP Portugal. I flew from LIS to MAD and the crew were overall more friendly and smiling than on US domestic flights. The plane was clean and bright. I did not notice if the seats recline. I will be using them for short flights throughout Europe when I return for visit."
Cons: "Flight was so short they rushed us eating the cookie and only water was served that I could tell. Also, TAP has their own boarding check-in wing of Lisbon airport. It was not clearly marked and Eropean arrows pointing up could mean to continue forward, as well as go to upper floors."
Cons: "TAP Airlines stranded us in Lisbon. They were late flying us from Vienna to Lisbon and then canceled our seats on our connection to JFK. Instead, they rebooked us on the next day's flight a full 24 hours after, refusing to rebook us on earlier flights on other carriers. Their customer service was as bad as I've ever experienced. Multiple agents admitted their company is terrible and doesn't care about its customers. The indifference to our situation was surreal. Lesson learned."
Cons: "Two flights today. Both over an hour delayed."
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Pros: "Food was good, but no champagne offered. The attendants were nice, though."
Cons: "It was not a business class at all. I was put in the same big bus together with econom class passengers. There was not supposed to be any business class in this airplane, since chairs are all the same and not comfortable. No entertainment of any kind at all. It's a waste of money."
Pros: "Liked connections and price. Nice crew."
Cons: "There was a hefty charge to reserve seats which wasn’t clearly mentioned on the Justfly website. Knee room was the tightest I’ve had on a commercial flight. The seats barely reclined which is important on an overnight flight."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "Pretty unremarkable flight in an Embraur jet. On time"
Cons: "Basic food but wasn't expecting anything so it was a nice surprise"
Pros: "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: "Check in was handled professionally and personally. Service throughout the flight was cordial."
Cons: "The entertainment system was non existent on the Airbus 319."
Cons: "TAP charge us for baggage extra $189 they said was not include in price.a lot of people was upset include us .we never will fly this line again.I will report for local News in Miami that airline is scam."
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential compared to the bad."
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."
Cons: "Friendliness flight attendees Service on board Equipment/ tv Food beverage service Language skills of flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 20 mins"
Pros: "On time and waited for our connection from Miami without any fuss"
Cons: "Comfortable seats but very luttle legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delighted and service staff was slow"
Pros: "On time, clean airplane, polite air crew and a sandwich and soft drink."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "Both check ins (to and from Boston) the staff were rude. No information, just alot of speaking Portuguese to other staffers while my family and I stood there. The flight and crew were good, clean, kind and efficient."
Cons: "There was a strike in Lisbon. Thousands of people trying to go through security and four people working the booths. Plus NO information. Just chaos, bad feelings and HOURS of standing in lines. Stressful. Will NEVER go to Lisbon again."
Cons: "We booked flight several months ago and it included seating assignment, so we choose our seats. Then when we check-in they had changed them to the last row of the plane. We had received a couple of emails asking for us for option to pay for advance seating. Assume they had changed their policy and now were charging. We had a close connection at LHR and being last off, we almost missed connection. Horrible"
Pros: "Great comfy seats, checking was a breeze and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment and I thought there should have been a little more food. What they did provide was good just a little shy on the quantity. INternational flight with no free bags."
Pros: "Plane and comfort"
Cons: "Food and entertainment needs to be better. The transfer over to cologne from Portugal was a bit hectic due to customs and we just made it in time for our flight. Need a better system to verify the passports."
Pros: "Flight was just crappy all the way. New airplane...seats d ont recline."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "There was great entertainment on the first flight"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Slow baggage claim"
Pros: "Flight was in Time"
Cons: "We got only mineral Water on the Flight but booked a full service flight"
Cons: "Late 45 min only one attendan hence no services of any kind and no chance for real safety in case of emergency Same on TAP"
Cons: "First flight was delayed by just a half an hour and we arrived in Portugal. We had a connecting flight to AMS with also TAP and had a two hour window to make the next flight with the same company (TAP). We were in line for passport and then security and talked to several TAP employees and they said we would be have time and wouldn't have a problem catching the second flight. Well, we got through the lines with 30 min before our next flight and they wouldn't let us on. Customer service and organization of the airline is really poor. The aircraft had minimal room and no entertainment. We got on our next flight five hours later and all they gave us was a $10 food voucher. So poorly managed."
Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Pros: "Free blanket, pillow, headphones, and wine! Flight was on time, no one weighed or measured carry on bags."
Cons: "Tight seats for an international flight!"

Pros: "My flight was punctual, the seats are comfortable, steady take off and landing"
Pros: "seats were fine. the entertainment system was working."
Cons: "it's so dry, but the crew did not come around to offer water except during the food services. the food was pretty darn bad. entertainment selection was pretty bad. try table was dirty."
Cons: "They keep us inside the bus trapped for more than 20 min, before boarding, very bad experience."
Pros: "Quick boarding and landed earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "The air-con was too cold. The seats don't allow you to sleep as there's no where to rest your head against."
Pros: "It was very quick and arrived ahead of time."
Pros: "Crew were amazing arrived early"
Cons: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Baggage reclaim very slow"
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The boardin personnel was unbelievably rude..they didnt let us board our very small luggages despite the plane was half empty. When we insisted they started laughing and threathen us of letting us miss our flight,with the attitude ignorants display when they are given a bit of authority"
Cons: "Change boarding personnel"
Pros: "The check in was very good and there were people about to ask if you needed help"
Pros: "Bag check in was great! Had a great experience with the Easy Jet staff. Security was u bit unfriendly."
Cons: "long delays"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly cramped - felt like the seat back in front of me was right in my face!"
Cons: "It’s was late both out and return"
Cons: "There was an altercation between two passengers on the flight that escalated to four people being involved. The crew did little to nothing to resolve the situation. As a result, screaming persisted for multiple minutes until the passengers stopped themselves."
Cons: "Plane delayed and overbooked"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, normal easy jet flight, not expensive, short on space and just about ok on comfort. But, good flight times and reasonable cost. There was a very big man in my row, with his small wife, he just about fitted on,but I don't think of have accepted him sitting next to me."
Pros: "Staff were great (as always) with Easyjet."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Athens due to heavy winds. Quite common with Mykonos apparently. Was a bit of a mess when we landed in Athens...left hand didn’t know what the right was doing."
Pros: "The crew amazing"
Cons: "To much delayed the flight"
Pros: "easy, no fuss boarding and flight"
Cons: "the queuing to have your bags scanned as you board your flight was confusing as there were 3 queues in the same space for flights leaving within 10 minutes of each other. Not a big deal, but someone explaining which queue to those at the back would have been helpful"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Ground crew did not do a good job with the boarding process and even with speedy boarding it did not work well."
Pros: "Efficient No Frills Value For Money"
Cons: "Cramped Seating"
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "2-hour delay due to "crew welfare issues" Even after a 2-hour delay, they let more cabin baggage on board than was possible to stow in the lockers, resulting in rather chaotic scenes around transfer of baggage to the hold, and adding toi delay.. Entirely avoidable"
Pros: "Great service landed early both ways defo use again"
Pros: "No having to have hassle of traveling"
Pros: "the ticket assistance was helpful afterwards and seemed to by sympathetic to our plight."
Cons: "We arrived early to airport but it took almost an hour to go through check in..We arrived early to airport but it took almost an hour to go through check in... we did not account for the long security which held us up.. it would have been nice if they would have called us out over the intercom and if need be held up flight as we were running from security to the boarding area. Afterwards the guy at the desk was not helpful at all and told us to leave the airport and then go back to the ticket booth.. if they could have made a call that would have been nice."
Pros: "I liked the price of my flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no update on the app to indicate it. A lot of time wasted waiting in the airport and a very late arrival in Manchester."
Pros: "The journey was made easy & stressfree with all our info on the easyJet app. Staff were very friendly on both flights. Paid for the extra leg room & that made all the difference."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Almost 2hour delay"
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant and the pilot did an excellent job in difficult weather conditions"
Cons: "The flight was not stocked with sufficient food and had run out of sandwiches by row 3. Considering food is purchased for an additional fee this is surely makes poor business sense aside from being frustrating for passengers on a 3 hour flight plus a delay. Flights were very expensive especially when factoring in that we had to pay to check a bag, to select seats and to purchase food and drink. Worked out as terrible value for money when compared with an Emirates flight to New Zealand."
Cons: "The ground crew in Berlin was rude and impolite. They decided to check in our bag for the hold luggage without asking us and ordering us. In comparison the ground crew in Paris asked politely who would like to check in the bags because of a space shortage."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow Seat was very uncomfortable, it is like they discriminate against tall people, leg space gets less and less by the year"
Pros: "The landing was hairy and I have never experienced a fish tail landing quite like it before."
Cons: "The landing was horrid and Im sure I lost £15 off the cashier for wine and cheddar crackers was like a magic trick gone wrong. Sort your float for each flight and stop making assumptions with short change and playing games."
Pros: "Flight was well organised and lef on time."
Cons: "Rating of one star for food was because we didn't have any and entertainment because understandably there wasn't any."
Pros: "Crew and plane were good"
Cons: "Why do they call us to the gate and then stop us from walking to the plane for ages."
Pros: "Friendly staff, food ok"
Cons: "Shepherded into a small area with very few seats, and anyway, we were held in lanes like sheep! Seating on the plane - narrow and little space between rows. Had to wait quite a while for baggage to arrive."
Cons: "Booked wrong date before confirmation came phoned to cancel was told I couldn't have a refund would never use easy jet again"
Pros: "Waiting almost at the aircraft steps, it was frustrating to be told to go back to the lounge as there was a technical problem with the aircraft. easyJet managed to find a replacement aircraft and ended up leaving 40mins late, but arrived only 20min late. Had visions of being several hours late. For a low cost carrier the seats are fine and crew were very good, friendly and effort by Captain to be the visible face of easyJet in explaining the problems. So much better than Ryanair, clear difference in customer service, easyJet is more like scheduled carriers than low cost like Ryanair."
Cons: "Boarding is always difficult and poorly managed b6 the handling agent. The second time we boarded was a bit better, but real confusion over priority between disabled, passengers with children, speedy boarding etc. There is no entertainment on the aircraft, not even seat power."
Cons: "First of all they charge you plenty for checked bags. They want you to pay on line. I tried and could not get it done. Not sure why it was just in a loop. So I paid close to 50 euros a bag at the airport. Highway Robbery in my opinion. They also charge 3 euros for a cup of coffee."
Pros: "Speedy Boarding is nice"
Cons: "That there is no pre-assigned gate. It's a crazy dash for the gate once announced. Seems inefficient. Wish you guys had a free loyalty program to reward people like all the other airlines do"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. I was directed towards the rear if the plane so I didn't have to walk town the entire plane. I was offered to check my hand luggage in the hold for free"
Cons: "Flight delay both outbound and return"
Pros: "Sufficient service quick boarding and de-boarding. Captain kept us well informed"
Cons: "Needs a little updating"
Cons: "Easyjets own App cancelled my flight and the rescinded this cancellation. Thus I travelled to the airport and found it was cancelled again. Worse; initially no rescheduled flight for >5 days. Had to buy a seperate ticket to a different airport."
Pros: "Liked? Price. Most staff helpful."
Cons: "Hectic 'security' check of cabin stuff. Lots of stairs at Marseille between aircraft & terminals"
Pros: "Smooth experience from boarding to landing, staff efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient when we eventually boarded, could have been more organised."
Cons: "No food left to purchase on a flight that was delayed by 90 minutes, gate staff allowed oversize bags onto aircraft causing issues for crew and passengers, could have been an easy £45 for EZY. No boutique service on flight."
Pros: "On time, welcoming crew on board"
Cons: "Request to put small handbag into half empty flight bag is just petty. If easyJet insist on checking customers through and then holding them in a pen, they should provide facilities/seating - we are not cattle but that is the impression given."
Pros: "On time fantastic !"
Pros: "Very comfortable experience. Boarding was easy. Check in was convenient. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing in particular to dislike."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, attentive and helpful where possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes but there was almost no information about this other than the EasyJet app, even the airport boards provided misinformation. A last minute gate change brought upon a stampede, the flight was overbooked, and whilst not EasyJet's fault, 20 children on a midnight flight did not make for an enjoyable experience."
