Pros: "It was overall good - 30 min delay. Can’t rate food or entertainment as I didn’t eat or use tv."

Pros: "The gate process to boarding was excellent"
Cons: "There was broken TVs no running water so no hot beverages no bathrooms on a 2 hour flight and I’m pregnant so that was u comfortable and the flight attendants were not very accommodating or helpful in fact almost boarder line rude if they say something mean but use a nice voice that doesn’t make it acceptable"

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The ample legroom and comfortable cushiony seats."

Cons: "Everything was great! There was a small delay, and that’s all."

Cons: "Flight was delayed at departure. Long taxying to gate on tarmac. Restless children onboard. Was happy when door opened and fresh air came in. Staff was very courteous giving the circumstances of a lot of spillage by passengers of snacks brought onboard."

Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."

Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"

Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "No communication, no direction. Over an hour late and it was handled so ineffectively"

Pros: "Excellent healthy snack options and variety. Friendly crew. They recycle. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Landed 10 minutes early only for them to announce we had 10min delay at the gate. then we sit on runway for 40 minutes with no explanation. That is unacceptable.. context for anxious passengers is a must. Customer sat plummets from this. A little communication goes a long way."

Pros: "Good legroom"

Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"

Pros: "Lots of leg room, smooth flight and landing, polite staff"
Cons: "It was so hot! Our air conditioner put out heat the entire ride and it was very stuffy."

Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "All around good service"

Pros: "That I eventually arrived."
Cons: "Everything else. 2 hours late???? F that."

Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."

Cons: "I wish a non Carb protein snack were offered."

Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."

Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."

Pros: "Flight was on time Leg room was good"

Pros: "Quick boarding, plenty of snacks and beverages, and smooth flight. Very roomy compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Some of the in flight channels were unavailable."

Pros: "The light snack was adequate. My husband is a big guy and sometimes has issues flying due to size, found seats to be comfortable. Also, Jetblue gave us us a $50 credit for the inconvenience."
Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."

Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "Had to check my bag even tho there were a few spots still available."

Cons: "No air conditioning , warm to hot the entire flight. No forks to eat the salad."

Pros: "checking in could not have been easier"
Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Security was so backed up. I was not the only one who missed a flight, there were several people in line with me That also missed fights. They seemed very understaffed. When myself and other passengers asked them for help, they either ignore us or laughed."

Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."

Pros: "Everything was splendid as usual. Except for the flight attendant "serving" the bulkhead, which costs an extra $90. He consistently effectively told us to shove it when we needed the slightest thing. Never had a bad experience w/ JetBlue employees at any time. My two seatmates suffered the same rudeness, in addition to a broken tv."
Cons: "Only the aforementioned flight attendant. rkbarnettphd"

Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"
Cons: "World‘s tiniest airplane toilet. I think munchkins built this for other munchkins. And I don’t mean big munchkins, but real real small munchkins."

Pros: "The service on Jet Blue was absolutely great! Knowledgeable staff and courteous!"

Cons: "This flight was very scary particularly mid air. Haven flown many times I knew this was different from usual turbulence cause my clouds or rough air. Jet blue should check"

Pros: "ON TIME! TV Comfortable Seats Leg room (though I am by no means tall)"

Cons: "Everyone was very friendly and we arrived early to Boston"

Pros: "comfortable flight, on time, pleasant crew and I was impressed with how a woman with a puppy was treated. I had a terrible experience when I went from CA to MI about 6 years ago on another airline. ( I was bringing my puppy back with me). I'm sorry I didn't complain about it."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great! There was sufficient room in the compartment above me to place my carry on."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight was delayed 2 hours and there were several gate changes."

Pros: "The planes took off and landed smoothly"
Cons: "Short connection time - way too short for this size airport. Never book a transfer in Istanbul with less than 2.5 hrs connection time. The airport adherence to covid social distancing rules was a joke. I think it was the worst experience and provoked a lot of stress. The boarding was also chaotic and business class did not board separately. The Meals on board were poor - fish or lamb (smelly) they quickly run out of pasta in business class. This whole experience was bad."

Pros: "The crew ere very attentive."
Cons: "Everything was great except that I find I have little taste for Turkish food. I as see this as my own failing, not the airline's."

Cons: "At the Istanbul airport an item was taken from me for no reason. No regulation was shown for that item to be taken. I wasn’t comfortable with the way I was treated at the airport. The flight was very good"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Technology was amazing. The people were Beautiful"
Cons: "If patrons were more respectful of other patrons & guidelines set in place. Thank You!"

Pros: "After we missed our flight, we were provided with terrible customer service."
Cons: "We were told to go to the wrong gate. After we missed our flight, we were charged 880 USD to book for the identical flight the following day. We were taken around in circles inside the airport. Absolutely unacceptable. Would not recommend."

Cons: "The Crew was on top of passengers requests. I asked three different crew memberrs for paper towels and no one delivered."

Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"

Pros: "Pretty comfy flight"
Cons: "The screens didn't work to watch movie or to see the flight time and distance"

Pros: "Only the stewardesses very helpful and professional"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "The entertainment, the food, the free wine."
Cons: "The small space of the economy seating area. It was very crowded and the staff wasn’t too keen on taking plates from passengers after they’ve eaten so often we were stuck with our trays and couldn’t get up or move. Boarding was a pain from Istanbul. The security check was chaotic and I wish they had a more sanitary way of checking everyone’s bags instead of using the same pair of gloves to search every passenger’s bag and do a body check."

Pros: "I had a gluten free meal"
Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "The services was excellent."
Cons: "Delay around three quarter an hour."

Pros: "Again a good solid basic service with good food well prepared and agreeably served by a pleasant staff. Thank you"

Cons: "Not enough movie varieties"

Pros: "Great food!"

Pros: "You guys are blessed and best of all of time"
Cons: "I didn't hate nothing it was the best"

Cons: "Service was terrible, crew was rude. Flight was delayed 2 hours leaving Tel Aviv and my luggage was not here when we arrived. They let us wait two hours for luggage before telling us it wasn't going to make it in. Frustrated and disappointed! Ground security in Turkey was rude and took my sons skate board which we had flown to Israel with and back to turkey, then they told us it couldn't come with us to miami although we flew Turkish both directions with no problem. In the end gate staff went and rescued his skate board from security as he got to the flight crying his little eyes out. Communication was terrible and staff was rude!"

Cons: "terrible delays and little assistance in Warsaw from turkish airline desk"

Pros: "Service was amazing"

Pros: "I thought the flight attendants were excellent!! They were the best crews since the beginning of our journey. I wish I had their names. They were one young lady and a tall man. Thank you very very much!!"
Cons: "I feel the seats are too narrow and space too tight. Other than that, all good!"

Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"

Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"

Pros: "the service"
Cons: "the entertainment"

Pros: "Same problem coming back, my flight IST to IAD missed because my my layover was only one hour, and when I got the desk of my connecting flight, I was not allowed to board, even though there were last few passengers were still moving to the plane. This time I had to spend another 8 hours on IST."
Cons: "I would have like quite a few things, but delays which were not uncontrollable ruined my whole trip"

Pros: "Friendly crew excellent food"

Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."
Cons: "The air condition of the two planes I used was very bad. There is only one type of food for breakfast. There is no much more to watch besides movies; no sitcoms or decomntries found"

Pros: "Flight took off on time"
Cons: "Pilot announces that we will land 15 minutes early and to buckle and prepare to land in about 20 minutes. 40 minutes later, we were still on air, no explanation given!"

Cons: "We left a bit late, but the capitan kept us informed and we were comfortable and had lots to watch and entertain us."

Pros: "Amazing crew. So friendly and helpful. Amazing food that I actually enjoyed. Great selection of movies, including new released and old classics. They also have this cool feature where you can watch your plane flying and landing with outside cameras."
Cons: "The bathroom wasn't maintained at all throughout the flight. Which usually isn't a big deal but on a 10+ hour flight they can get pretty nasty."

Pros: "We purchased coach tickets and were surprised at how nicely we were treated!! A very classy operation!"

Pros: "Meals, pillows and blankets, and the pouches with the slippers, toothpaste, etc."

Pros: "The food was great, had chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline. Entertainment was excellent, great variety of TV shows and movies. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. The Batman v. Superman theme was a nice touch. Decent leg room in economy class."
Cons: "Because we fly an older model 777-300ER, there wasn't a personal a/c nozzle, so it was a tad warm on the plane. They should fix that whenever the plane goes in for maintenance."

Pros: "Departure and arrival were on time. Fairly smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was quite strange. Hand checked some travelers but not all with no explanation. Breakfast was a bit "off""

Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"

Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."

Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"

Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"

Cons: "Tv in the seat to make the long flight pass more quickly."

Pros: "Comfort, timing. Customer Service!"
Cons: "Technically problems with lightning on board."

Pros: "Crew were great, service was spot on."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."

Pros: "Boarding went well. Although it was a full flight, they asked for volunteers to check in hand luggage (free of charge) I did, trying to help. But once I picked up my luggage and got to destination point, I noticed that 2 small items (gifts for family) had been pilfered. Not happy and will not volunteer to help again."
Cons: "No food on plane, no entertainment,( unless you download the app) Above pilfered items"

Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"

Pros: "Excellent all round. Good price. Nice seats. Excellent staff. Good boarding and disembarking. Highly recommended."
Cons: "It does not have free food and entertainment, but for the price this is acceptable."

Cons: "The food was extremely mediocre for an $18 meal."

Pros: "Staff were helpful and smiling. Good value"
Cons: "We needed a better choice of food"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"

Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"

Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"

Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."

Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"

Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."

Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."

Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at sarapascual@hotmail.ca"

Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."

Pros: "Staff was good"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."

Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"

Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."

Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."

Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"

Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."

Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."

Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."

Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"

Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfort, friendliness and ease of travel with Westjet"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"

Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"

Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"

Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."

Pros: "Helpful polite staff. Many great movies and tv shows to select from."
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an uncomfortable, small, non reclining seat."

Pros: "The flight is decently cheap"
Cons: "Everything else is not really pleasant for a long distance travel. I've never felt more uncomfortable in my life during a flight. But i suppose you get what you paid for."

Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."

Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."

Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""

Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."

Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"

Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Fake marketing! They said it will be some snacks for economyXtra, and then 2 hours before the flight sending an email saying that the snakes will be charged! Disappointed!"

Cons: "I paid Xtraeconomy to have some snacks during the fly, and they end up coming with a trolley to pay! Disappointed!"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Food was ok. Seat was crowded. Everything else was excellent."

Pros: "The crew were very nice overall but one flight attendant in particular was incredible. I didn’t get a name but he was friendly, welcoming, and kind."
Cons: "I sat in an emergency row with an empty seat to my left and really did not like how the passenger in the row behind me kept getting up and walking into my row to get his stuff from the bins."

Pros: "Sleeping and being left alone"
Cons: "Food, Service by cabin crew because they never smiled"

Pros: "Amazing punctuality, both on the way out to Lisbon and on the return to London."
Cons: "Cannot really think of anything that needed attention on these flights."

Pros: "Super friendly"
Cons: "Maybe a hot meal?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were not able to board the plane. We left our morning flight from Madrid on time and arrived as expected. We hurried through the airport and went exactly where we were directed. Despite this, the gates closed on us while we were running to the gate. TAP sold us a service they could not provide."

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew friendly on airport and flight. Plane was clean and sits were ok."
Cons: "The food could have been better."

Cons: "So many delays, no real info provided. When we had to stay overnight they didn’t mention it would take 4 hours to get our bags which actually never came. Airline industry sucks and deltas one of the worst."

Cons: "Not cancelling it"

Cons: "When TAP couldn’t get me to Lisbon in time to make my connection they added a flight to Madrid where I waited until 16:00 to fly to Seville. I talked to several TAP representatives and none were helpful or apologetic and they offered me nothing for the problems they caused. I missed my only day in Seville due to this. This trip turned out to be a disaster."

Pros: "Clean modern aircraft"
Cons: "Left 35 minutes late; had to take a bus to the plane in Lisbon (no gate)"

Pros: "All except for service to handicapped."
Cons: "I mad reservation listing that I needed wheel chair assistance due to walking limitations. Upon flight arrival no service was provided not was it provided on my return trip."

Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The 2 hour turned 3 hour delay. Lack of organizational during check in. Had to show our documents 4 times within 10 meters."

Cons: "TAP seems to have trouble landing at its own global hub. Three hours wasted in Porto before the traffic over LIS had cleared up. First time TAP, last time TAP."

Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Cons: "The boarding process was nutz. We had to take a bus away from the terminal to board the plane. The flight was delayed. I was not very happy to have to spend $92 to check 2 bags."

Cons: "was delayed 2 hours"

Pros: "Flight on time and safe Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Cramped seating Boarding dreadfully slow"

Pros: "the food , drink and the crew"
Cons: "seats not very comfortable. plane full up"

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"

Cons: "The delay on the take off"

Cons: "We had to postpone our first leg from London to Lisbon by a day and then they cancelled our return flight without telling us!!! So, we were trapped in Lisbon with no flight to return home. We called them and they said, "we cancelled your tickets and only have business class seats available for you and your toddler." We said no thank you. If we were going to spend 1k on a return flight, we were going to take British Airways. TAP, never again."

Cons: "The service was below average, nobody seems to be eager to assist. The food that was offered on the flight was below expectations. The company should work on improving customer care"

Cons: "No vegetarian option The last seats mean can't lean backwards when someone in front goes backwards :("

Pros: "I did like the crew and food were great!"
Cons: "I am very unhappy as I paid extra for my seat selection and did not get a window seat. I will be following up about my complaint"

Pros: "Crew friendliness and attention"
Cons: "They ran out of diet coke and coke zero literally right after takeoff which is a joke!"

Pros: "I was very impressed with the Ground crew who met me off the plane and had already arranged for me to go on a later flight with Emirates. If it had been possible to let me know when I was on the first flight that my onward travel had been arranged then it would have been perfect."
Cons: "my TAP Portugal flight from Lisbon to Heathrow was so late I missed my connection to AbuDhabi."

Cons: "The lady changed my 11H seat for another seat (29B) when I claim that this is not fear , a man said to me that if I insist in this matter he will not let me in Or flight , for me this was an abuse"

Cons: "I was so dissatisfied with the customer service and lack of help provided after a FULL and LARGE flight was cancelled to Lisbon (then ultimately to Rome for me). I would like a FULL refund for my flight plus my miles accredited to my account for the full trip to Rome."

Pros: "My wife needs help getting around but they placed us in the last row. No leg room again either. The crew was understanding and helpful."

Pros: "Everything was perfect! The staff was friendly and the food was nice. I found that there was more leg room than on other airlines."
Cons: "I used TAP to depart beautiful Portugal."

Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it. I place all of the blame on the Lisbon connecting terminal. I am not happy."

Pros: "Not much. Lunch"
Cons: "We paid to check the bag In and when we arrived the girl could not see this. We showed her clearly the paper then she charged ya and realised she had made a mistake but couldn't refund us. Terrible experience. Don't use the."

Pros: "Flights were on-time, planes were clean/newer, snacks were good."

Pros: "Clean planes. Reasonably comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding process with passport control in Lisbon seemed redundant. The transfer concourse doesn't allow access to VIP lounges."

Pros: "The flight was fine, no issues. Plane was fine, no WIFI or entertainment. Served a small meal. For the price, excellent trip."
Cons: "All was good."

Pros: "Late night dinner provided and morning snack"
Cons: "The seats are really hard to sit on (no soft at all) and seem to be made for very short people, so not enough leg support. I was glad it wasn't a 9 hour flight."

Pros: "Ask persons for veg or non veg snacks before u served please."

Pros: "Lots of flight options."
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights late, no real explanation for inbound. Boarding on inbound was chaotic."

Cons: "I had food poisoning from the ricota pasta I ate in the plane."

Cons: "To whom It May concern: My husband and I had a very very bad time trying fly from lisbon to Madrid through TAP. We booked together under same booking number. We don't know why my husband's ticket had been cancelled?? Thanks good! We have to spend five times more money to buy another ticket to fly together!! Now we try to find out what happened. Nobody want to take the responsibility!! Hope someone can give us the answer! Qi"
