Airline reviews

Pros: "Extra legroom in seat"
Cons: "Crying hysterical baby on flight. I upgraded only to have a screaming baby sit one row behind. Not the airlines fault but when you upgrade, a crying baby is the last thing to help get thru a red eye flight. As a mother I empathize but I probably would have taken the child to the bathroom."

Pros: "Fast service and plane pilot was great staff too"
Cons: "Little old seat but really roomy compared to other companies"

Pros: "Faster fly"

Pros: "Good snack selection & free wifi"
Cons: "Plane had TVs but they weren’t allowing us to use them"

Pros: "I like the food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes at takeoff but landed when it was scheduled, so it was fine. Flight attendants didn’t make you stay in your seat, so you could use the lavatory. A fine, uneventful flight. Free WiFi. Snacks. Drinks. Fairly comfortable seats with decent legroom."
Cons: "Wish the seats in front of the emergency exit reclined."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"

Pros: "Perfect landing and great flight!"

Pros: "Jet Blue is our airline by choice. We have always had very good service from their staff and the only time there was a change because of weather, we were notified in order to make a change to our flight. We will continue to choose Jet Blue whenever possible."
Cons: "My only complaint with all of the airlines is allowing people to check their bags free at the gate when others have done the required thing of paying for checked bags. It is obvious that people are taking advantage if this. It would be great to see something more fair take place."

Pros: "I was impressed that the entire team seemed to care that we were being inconvenienced. It was a very nice touch that refreshments were being offered at the gate and that we were told when the next update would be. All updates were on time. In addition, our captain (Mark) came to the gate and spoke to all of us expressing his concern for what had happened to us. He also made a nice presentation on the plane and got us going right away. The free ear buds were also a great touch. Even though the situation was bad, you made a customer for life with the way your team responded to the situation. Well done!"
Cons: "Our flight was more than 2 hours late. :("

Pros: "I was pissed . I got to the airport on time and the delayed flight made it that i spent money for food at the airport and sit on the floor for 4 hours."
Cons: "I was pissed . I got to the airport on time and the delayed flight made it that i spent money for food at the airport and sit on the floor for 4 hours."

Cons: "Was not on time."

Pros: "Flight arrived at destination 20 min early. Crew was very pleasant. Plenty of leg room in upgraded seats."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, window shade would not stay closed. Seats were covered in old grey vinyl."

Cons: "Super long wait time and delayed 4 times, the last delay being once we were already on the plane and specifically for “Catering”."

Pros: "Leg room was quite good."
Cons: "My long delay 2 hours and 15 minutes"

Cons: "I was not emailed or texted a copy of my boarding pass. I did receive for trip from detroit to Boston but not the return trip."

Pros: "The second flight had a great amount of leg room. They have cable tv and that was very entertaining. The app is very easy to use and made downloading our boarding passes super easy. I carried both mine and my fathers boarding pass right on my phone!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Beverage and snack service. Overhead storage. Leg room."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Poor planning for boarding. No offer for customer satisfaction."

Pros: "Thoroughly enjoyed access to television. Comfortable seating."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Mother Nature gave us grief but the crew made the situation very tolerable. They were attentive and accommodating and were sincere when they apologized for the delay...that wasn’t even their fault!!"
Cons: "No WiFi or movies. Oh well...snacks were great."

Pros: "The TV"
Cons: "They advertise free Wifi, couldn't get it to work at all. They did not offer everyone drinks or a snack. It was an early flight, a snack and water would have been lovely but didn't see that from the crew. They also didn't let my girlfriend and I sit next to each other after requesting so."

Cons: "Normally I don’t complain, but from the jump this flight was a nightmare. I fly JB all the time but this time was not nearly as enjoyable. I asked my attendant 2 times to buy headphones. She never brought them and maybe she forgot but She sat in the front on her phone the whole flight which was just irritating. After being delayed (for no apparent reason) Then having to sit for 20+ minutes because of a “jet bridge that’s too cold” (aren’t these made for the out doors?) this JB flight was less than satisfactory."

Cons: "The entertainment device failed to work. . Screen crashed ."

Cons: "Delayed flights."

Pros: "Plenty of space, very polite, seats are comfortable and complimentary snacks & beverages regardless of flight time span. Can’t best it."
Cons: "A blanket would be nice :)"

Cons: "Aer Lingus, Did not operate this particular Flight . Equip Problems"

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "The trip was a pleasant surprise being my first time with this company!!! Very pleasant and the flight attendants were excellent!!"

Pros: "I liked being informed by the pilots of rough weather and not to worry of any problems."
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "Overall a very good experience. Jet Blue is legitimately more comfortable than most other airlines and the boarding process was streamlined and effective."
Cons: "The only movie options were to stream your own via their in flight internet. Not a terrible thing, but other airlines offer more movie options, even on short flights."

Pros: "Both of my flights to Boston and back home to Detroit were wonderful! There were no problems or issues with the flight and the service was great!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "In-flight customer service was great."
Cons: "My TV screen did not work."

Cons: "Hour late."

Pros: "Good flight was treated well and felt welcome with refreshments and snacks. The way it should be!"

Cons: "Unfair refund policy. We tried to cancel MONTHS ahead of time, upon early departure from our Peace Corps service. I don't feel airlines should have no refund policies starting from the date of purchase. There should be a window for refunds."

Pros: "From boarding to hospitality of all the crew members and the ease of the flight, It made it a great experience! I am not one who likes to fly but will definitely fly this airline again when the opportunity arises!"

Cons: "Terribly cold flight. When asked for a blanket, they wanted $5, which I couldn't pay because they wouldn't accept cash. 2 hours of complete misery. :("

Pros: "Comfortable"

Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed with little to no information. Terrible experi mce"

Pros: "Comfortable flight. The staff was very nice. They tried to reset the video system but some of the screens still stopped working after about 5 min"
Cons: "On this flight the Entertainment system offered free options. Unfortunately my video screen and about 20 others stopped working. flight was also delayed"

Cons: "Flights were delayed by four hours"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 hr delay due to crew rest issues. Alive can't manage their personnel and did nothing to accommodate stranded passengers"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our crew was delayed in Philadelphia hours before our flight yet we wer not notified until 20 minutes before our boarding that we would now have a 2.5 hour delay"

Pros: "Crew was good on board."
Cons: "I was sent to wrong gate (the one printed on my ticket in Dubai was wrong), then I asked agent the correct gate...he sent me to another wrong gate clear across the terminal. When I got there, was directed (again) to the other end of the terminal...10 minute dash....and almost missed my connecting flight. Flight crew was nice....calmed me down but lady in seat next to me was rude.....not anyone's fault but hers :)"

Pros: "Service. Friendliness. Atitude."

Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Gate at Logan had a rat running around. Flight entertainment worked sporadically - many seats had broken entertainment equipment that didn't work at all. Seats and armrests were dirty - my daughter and I wiped them down with handsanitzer and kleenex."

Pros: "I had a lost bag and the baggage people were some of the most helpful I've ever encountered. The flight was nice and well done, but in the midst of some hard bag stuff, your people were great. In particular. Jennifer Novak was the lady who helped me in Detroit and was outstanding."

Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We were in business class and appreciated the use of the Clubroom Lounge at Gatwick airport, (although none of the ground people told us about it, we happened to ask on our own.)"
Cons: "Baggage check in was a hassle. Too automated."

Cons: "Lost bags"

Cons: "No inflight meal, no inflight entertainment for 10 hrs onboard."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"

Pros: "Excellent airplane, the Dreamliner is amazing with great leg room (I'm 6' 1") comfortable seats and head rest, great lighting and an extensive entertainment system! Crew was efficient."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Cardboard packages that contained tasteless meals."

Pros: "staff did the best they could to assist"
Cons: "Flight change, would have like more options to reschedule flights. However good service from overall."

Pros: "The crew was fine and we were very comfortable. This is because we were in Premium seats. The experience is entirely different in economy, which we did while flying the other direction."
Cons: "The Westjet employees working on the ground as we disembarked in Calgary we’re not good. It took forever to get out stroller off the plane, and one employee was being really rude to all the people waiting for their strollers."

Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."

Pros: "The flight staff were excellent. Very pleasant to deal with and very accommodating. They really let you feel that they were there to help and if they could they did."
Cons: "The only real irritation was the check in process. I have no issue whatsoever with the 23kg allowance per bag but the process for checking your bag, especially if you were over the limit and what the consequences may be were not obvious. My wife and I had two bags, mine was 4kg under the allowance and my wife's was 2kg over. If I had known this was going to be a potential GBP45 charge we would have shuffled things about to balance the bags. It needs to be made clear to people that they can actually weigh their bags first to find this out. My bag was already tagged and gone when we went through a lot of hassle to reduce my wifes bag weight. Anyway, this is a suggestion so that future passengers do not encounter the same frustration."

Pros: "Sensible ticket price"

Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."

Pros: "Most of the crew were nice. Captain very informative."
Cons: "It was freezing! The headphones they rented me didn’t work, or maybe it was the tablet—could barely hear the movie."

Pros: "The staff were super helpful and friendly, and the accommodations were clean and decently comfortable!"
Cons: "The food was very pricy and not that great. Also the boarding took a long time and seemed a little unorganized."

Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"

Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"

Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."

Pros: "I would give the crew 10 stars if I could! This was by far one of the best flights I’ve ever been on. I’m not a fan of having to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment, and it was a bit cold for my taste(I also had to pay for a tiny blanket). However, other than those two very minor things, it was a wonderful flight. I have never flown with a better crew, you could really tell they all actually enjoy their jobs. I loved that the pilot had a great sense of humor, he told a few funny jokes after we landed(while we were taxiing) it definitely helped make the time pass faster & I honestly think it put everyone in a good mood :) I have never been more satisfied with a flight. I will most definitely recommend WestJet to everyone I know, and will be my first choice for flying myself."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment. I was disappointed that I had to pay for a blanket & that the blanket was so small. In flight WiFi was kind for expensive and didn’t work very well, it kept disconnecting and the only thing that really worked was iMessage. Having said that, overall it was a great flight! :)"

Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."

Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"

Pros: "Piot gave clear and timely announcements as flight was delayed do to weather,. In-flight crew were friendly and providing a relaxing environment. The include meal was very good."
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Bathroom was in terrible condition."

Pros: "Crew was great cabin service was good, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Start loading at 10 takeoff at 11:45 late because of loading luggage. Maybe if we start loading at 11 we would not have to sit ther for so long"

Pros: "Re-booked on Westjet after my WOW airlines was cancelled. Didn't know what to expect - pleasantly surprised, Great service from top to bottom leaving Gatwick Airport. Will make them my top preference in searching future flights out that way."
Cons: "Nothing - the entire experience (check-in, flight, deplaning) exceeded my expectations."

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"

Cons: "It wasnt possible to connect to entertainment system or wifi even though I had paid for wifi"

Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."

Pros: "The flight was ok and the customer service overall good."
Cons: "A bit disappointing that the flight didn’t even have monitors to watch movies , you got to use your own tablets or cell phones. I prefer to save batteries on my devices when I’m travelling :)"

Pros: "The plane ✈ flew without incident."
Cons: "Airplane left late, no in flight movies, menu of food was very unusable. Because I am lactose intolerant, still, lots of cheesy entrées on the menu."

Pros: "Exact on time."
Cons: "Refreshment should have more choices"

Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "We arrived early."
Cons: "Checked bag fees. Agents at check-in tried to get me to check my carry-on claiming my carry-on was too big. My carry-on is a pilot crew bag by TravelPro, which I pointed out to them. Had to get a supervisor. No free food during the flight. Luckily, someone told me. I ended up purchasing food from a restaurant in the terminal to bring on the flight."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding process and friendly crew members."
Cons: "Make sure to pre-order a meal up to 48 hours in advance, and to download the Westjet app to get access to free movies/TV"

Pros: "Comfort, attention to detail and above all else, feeling welcome and safe throughout check-in to thanking crew de-planing. Incredible experience as always."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"

Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."

Cons: "There was only food for purchase which I did not try, entertainment also did not use as I did not have the app"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."

Pros: "The crew was nice enough, although I did overhear them talking negatively about some other customers out of earshot."
Cons: "The food options were pretty poor for an eight hour flight. I'm happy I brought some food with me because there were few options (snacks - biscotti and party mix, no meals). They also charged customers for checking a bag; most airlines allow the first checked bag to be free for international flights. Not the case here."

Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."

Cons: "Good Choice of movies to watch on my tablet, but sound was really bad, worse than when i play my music from my tablet on the same earphones"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"

Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."

Pros: "Our choice to pay the upgrade to Plus seating was WELL worth the cost. My husband and I had never flown 'first class' before and thought on this almost 9 hour flight we would give it a try. Wow! Seat comfort was fantastic. Service was wonderful. Food was great. We were made to feel like royalty."

Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The gate in LGW was one of the farthest in the aiport. The flight ia 8.5 hours and the ticket is not cheap. But you have to pay for everything. Even onvboard entertainment. The only free thing is the soft drinks and that is even rationed. I flew with worst airline and for long flight they at least give a free meal."

Pros: "The return flight was acceptable. seats were comfortable. Would recommend on spending the extra $$ on get extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Flying out on December 24, the airline kept us at the airport for 6 (including 2 hours on the plane) hours before cancelling the flight because they could not get water pressure to the washrooms. We were supposed to leave for London (LHR) at 8:35pm and were notified of the cancellation at approx 2am on December 25. The only other flight that would be available would be on December 25 at the same time the 24th flight was supposed to leave. The service desk was not taking any requests for finding or re-booking flights, we were supposed to call their support number at 7am on the following day. We were offered cab fare accommodation from and back to the airport. They offered hotel stay which I passed on. They provided $60 of airport food that could only be used at certain restaurants, not compatible to purchase chips or drinks (non-alcoholic) from other stores. The coupons as compared to Air Canada, which are valid for a year were only valid for 24 hours. In the end the only "monetary" compensation I got from WestJet was 250 westjet dollars that expire in 12 months."

Cons: "Plane was 3 hours late to leave, Plane was old so the overhead bins were small, Had to pay for food on 7 hour transalantic flight even thought plane was delayed 3 hours on tarmac. USB power plug didn't work - if you want cheap flights to Gatwick, stick with Air Transat"

Pros: "Ended up getting quite the deal on the flight back and forth between Toronto and London. The flight did leave a few minutes later but nothing unexpected. The crew was very nice and very friendly. The food was decent, they came around for drinks 3 times and twice for snacks (you have an option of pretzel sticks or biscuits and they're both pretty good - I'm partial to the biscuits. Not gonna lie, I was able to ask them for both a couple times, and they obliged."
Cons: "There are no onboard entertainment systems, you must bring your own device and even then their WestJet app has bugs - so the app kept crashing on my Nexus 5X whenever I tried to play a movie or TV show."

Pros: "The crew was great for both flights that I took.The flight that I was able to use WestJet Connect was very nice to be able to watch movies & also track the flight's progress."
Cons: "It should be made more clear in the email correspondence the importance of downloading the app before the flight. I read the email briefly but the most important information was that there was not to be an Note 7s on the plane. It was less clear that the only way to get movies on the flight was through the app & by the time I realized this I was already on the plane & unable to download it fast enough before departing. However the flight home I had the app & that was lovely."

Pros: "Friendly crew (mostly). Entertaining and witty announcements! Like that food is an optional extra, not in with the flight price."
Cons: "Was flying alone with my 8-month baby. At five hours in he needed a break from sitting on my lap. After standing for a while (in the least in-the-way spot we could find) a flight attendant began to get huffy each time she passed and finally asked pointedly if she could get something for us. I offered to go back to my seat which she said would be helpful. In hindsight I think she could have given us a little more grace given the age of the baby and length of flight, or at least have explained the situation more politely!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You are selling tickets for flights that are not available. You are taking money from people and cheating them. You should check to make sure the flights are still going"

Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Cons: "Water"

Cons: "Excellent airline. Always my first choice!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The last 4 flights with Aerlingus have all been at least 2 hours delayed to London. People give out about Ryan Air but I have been flying with them to France 2 a year for the last 4 years and I only had one delayed flight because of air traffic controllers"

Cons: "The information at boarding time was hard to understand, even coffee was a charge, they didn’t have our stroller at the gate when we got off then when we got to baggage claim it was still hard to find."

Cons: "Nothing, everything was exceptional"

Pros: "Ordinary flight, no food (though International it operates like Domestic Travel)."
Cons: "Boarding is extremely weird for Air Lingus. Causes problems when there is no proper order."

Cons: "Should have included meals on flights that are 8hrs."

Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been better organized. For example by seat number like other airlines do. Having everyone board at once was a bit disoriented."

Pros: "Nothing was pleasant for this flight"
Cons: "Keep the schedule up to date on the web When there’s delay, keep customers posted Don’t miss customers luggage"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Roomier seats, include a beverage (soda, juice, and at least water), child free section"

Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Utterly confusing answers to questions."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Que in immigration"

Pros: "It was a short flight but the flight attendants made the most of my trip. They were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Liked the logistics from the European side for connecting flights, the airplane, crew, and entertainment."

Cons: "Very bumpy takeoff and landing"

Pros: "The crew is friendly"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge. This was very frustrating and seems to be a common problem as it was also the same scenario on the out bound flight to London which then caused me to miss my transatlantic flight as Aerlingus delayed the flight leaving Dublin plus air bridge problem"

Pros: "Quick flight, great landing"
Cons: "Can believe they charge you for water."

Pros: "I barely remember the flight as I was traumatized by the flight previously mentioned."
Cons: "Lost luggage!!!!!!!!! See above. The seating was a little better than British Air."

Pros: "The flight was on schedule and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The cabin and restrooms were a bit dirty. The seats weren’t the most comfortable and the attendants didn’t make as many rounds as expected for a 10 hour day flight."

Cons: "The booking left no time to make it to the next flight. Had to purchase a separate flight last minute."

Pros: "* New planes * Easy check in"
Cons: "* Last minute seat assignment * Crew is helpful but not friendly"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft. Almost 1 hour delay."

Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on my connecting flight from Dublin to London. And I didn’t receive it until I returned home a week later. No clothing for a week. I wasn’t offered any reimbursement. The flight attendants were rude. And the seats were uncomfortable."

Cons: "Flight did not have a very good entertainment selection."

Pros: "Price Staff Efficient Comfortable Boarding and exit procedure excellent"
Cons: "Lost our luggage on our way home. Worst is that it has our toothbrushes and I can’t find new ones at 10:00 at night..."

Pros: "Crew was responsive and kind if something was requested but service without asking is no longer part of a transatlantic experience."
Cons: "If you're on the Airbus transatlantic flight, the last section nis so noisy I'm surprised it's even a legal noise level. You can't even hear the entertainment it's so loud. Had to buy an upgraded economy just to be able to endure the long flight. It would be nice to see the cart come through again for coffee refill service."

Cons: "I was not permitted to check in online through any website (BA, Are Lingus etc.) then I was not permitted to self-check in at a kiosk. By the time I was able to check in all that was left was a middle seat. I asked about upgrades and was told I would need to pay full price for one of those tickets. The seats are veryyy cramped, the entertainment system was outdated, the food was gross and wine was expensive."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating. After boarding was complete they moved several passengers to other rows which allowed a better distribution of open seats."
Cons: "Per usual, airline food is blah!"

Pros: "Not a single thing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "You can choose your seats without being charged and it was a very clean and comfortable flight"

Pros: "We waited about a half hour for the fuel crew to come and fill up the plane, but the staff and the captain were very nice and informed us of all updates and progress being made. I didn't even mind the extra wait! We still were able to make our next transfer and got to the airport in great time!"

Cons: "The boarding situation at Gatwick was a complete mess, they made us change the gate THREE times!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. They canceled the flight and made us wait at the check in counter for over 4 and half hours. After that they closed the counter without helping us rebook."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional throughout the flight."
Cons: "I was under the impression that small drinks such as soda or coffee would be complementary. To charge 2,50 Euro for a sprite and 3 Euro for coffee is unreasonable."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "We borded Kemal time, but did not take off until an hour later"

Pros: "I thought the staff worked very hard and were very friendly."
Cons: "Leg room was minimal. I don't think you should allow seats to go back since I inevitably sit behind someone who puts his all the way back and I feel like a pretzel. It seemed like a very expensive ticked to feel like that."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Limited choice of entertainment. ****Lost my luggage both destination bound and home bound**** Being kept in the plane for an extended period of time after having landed. Not even a coffee during the connecting flights (Dublin to Cardiff and Gatwick to Dublin). Poor connecting facilities and having to repeat security screening before connecting to the second leg of trip."

Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are too close together!"

Cons: "Alcohol was not even included during meals"

Pros: "thr crew"
Cons: "the boarding was not by zone, it took longer"

Pros: "Seats on flights between London and Dublin."
Cons: "Unfriendly staff, poor meal offerings, delays and long check in process"

Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak. In general a good experience except that Aer Lingus did not have any record of my grandson. Despite adequate documentation the AER Lingus staff were less than helpful and unfriendly."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"

Pros: "The Aer Lingus flight from London to Dublin was fast and easy"
Cons: "short duration in the air, no in flight entertainment or food and beverages"

Pros: "The crew was awesome and so accommodating"
Cons: "Not the flight/airline fault, but the getting through us preclearance was a nightmare"

Pros: "Check-in was easy and gate agent awesome. Boarding was a breeze. Plane was reasonably comfortable (short haul flight so didn't matter much). Weather conditions great, we arrived in DUB well ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Had lovely pix of nice looking food but charged for it! I had come over on a BA flight that served a really nice snack b'fast. Thought it odd that same route with different carrier made you pay. I was in desperate need of a coffee, could have offered complimentary beverages."

Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."

Cons: "Late departure on way back"

"The ground staff is unhelpful. It is almost as if they don’t want you to fly."

Cons: "All seats are uncomfortable on all planes"

Pros: "nothing - they misinformed me left and right so I couldnt make properly informed decisions and then denied me boarding and told me to pay for a new flight after having spent over 750 and 3 days 2 nights at the airport due to the mishaps."
Cons: "staff that gives the correct information so u can properly plan for the check in and boarding procedures and compassion to advocate to let me onto the flight they made me jump thru hoops just to get onto."

Pros: "The price is affordable"

Pros: "It was Okay"
Cons: "I m disappointed with the online deal I have booked my self with two checked bags & paid extra for that but I had to pay £ 80/-"

Pros: "Nothing! Horrible!"
Cons: "I had small carry on And there were nowhere to put them. The cabin for the carry one were full and my carry on had to be placed somewhere else, and knowing I had personal information in my bag. Very disappointed"

Pros: "Tap crew is very nice."
Cons: "No turbulence"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Use jet bridge instead of bus gate"

Cons: "Leave on time. Offer more snacks"

Cons: "Flight to Lisbon late. Missed connection Now have 10 hour delay"

Pros: "Crew was great and seats had footrests."
Cons: "Very old plane with outdated entertainment system and no power outlets. Had to take bus to plane, we repeatedly lined up for boarding only to have our flight delayed again and again."

Cons: "Not over selling the flight so passengers can make it home as they plan"

Cons: "Hand luggage weighing queue delayed flight, Gatwick flights delays, missing luggage at Lisbon,"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The plane was fairly new, clean, and comfortable seats."
Cons: "A better selection of the main meals in business class."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable and room for pack pack under seats"

Pros: "A short but very pleasant flight and food was served, excellent in every category."
Cons: "Nothing, it was the best short flight I've ever had. The staff were very attentive and did a great job of keeping everyone happy."

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: "The tripulation are very nice people. The food is better last year. Is good."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."

Cons: "I was rerouted to Madrid and did not have the correct timely information to cancel and rebook or to get a credit toward a future flight. There was no clear item on line to be used for my problem."

Cons: "Terrible terrible service in helping with a tight connecting flight, terrible"

Pros: "Overhead luggage space"

Pros: "Everything was going well. Confotable seats lovely air hostesses. Food wasn’t so great but I was surprised we even got something!"
Cons: "Unfortunately I had problems at airport security which wasn’t very pleasant!"

Cons: "The long delay, more than 1.5 hours."

Pros: "I really appreciated the fact that the gate agents enforced the boarding process meticulously. Often times, even when boarding a certain zone, passengers ignore it and board anyway. The staff made sure that people only boarded when their zone was called. The flight and the aircraft was comfortable. The food was better than what I've had on other airlines, if not at least equal."

Cons: "Stuardes don't have a sense of what costumer service is.. 6 hour flights and their plain aren't equipt with monitors to watch and entertain yourself Thank God I understood portugués but their translation to English was poor Food was not amazing I've been traveling since I was 6yrs old and I never felt so strongly about an airline... Not even easy jet"

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."

Cons: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."

Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."

Cons: "The flight was oversold and we got bumped off with 20 other passengers even though we had all booked months in advance. I’m still not in Marrakech, now a flight to New Jersey. I’m so sad and it’s my wedding anniversary."

Cons: "I had an awful experience. A flight attendant named Comissário Bruno denied me a second dessert when I asked for one. I was flying business class on flight TP059 on March 4 2018 and have Gold status on Star Alliance. Many passengers had declined dessert and I felt extremely embarrassed by having been denied food on a plane for the first time in my life. The attitude and lack of tact of Comissario Bruno on TP059 spoiled the whole flight experience for me."

Cons: "This event refers to my TAP flight from Lisbon to Heathrow on 21-Jan-2018. We arrived to the airport nearly 2 hours before departure time, waited 35min in the security checks and my girlfriend was held 20min in the passport control. While she was queuing for the 2no police officers to check her passport, an airport assistant came to the queue and asked who was due to board in TP364 to Heathrow. She was made aware that my girlfriend was there due to board that flight. In the meantime I made my way to the gate to make the gate assistants aware that she was held in the passport checks and was already on her way to the gate. Having said that, the zealous assistants in the gate have closed the gate in front of me, 18min before scheduled departure time and - "very kindly" - told me that I wouldn't be boarding that flight anymore even though my girlfriend have arrived in the meantime. One can imagine the frustration I felt finding out that the flight departure was delayed and that the flight actually departed 40min late. At that time I was already suffering the extortion of the customer service from TAP, claiming from me circa 400Eur from each of us for a one way ticket in the next flight to London. Therefore... until I remember this... I AM NOT FLYING TAP ANYMORE... I am very proud of being Portuguese but in similar situations that occurred with me flying British Airways, Lufthansa or Air Italia, I have always been treated with much more respect and customer care!"

Pros: "Though it was a short flight, they did offer food and left mine on my table since I was sleeping. I woke up super thirsty and hungry so that was a nice surprise."
Cons: "TAP is perpetually delayed. It’s annoying."

Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight and I love the dinner they served! Would fly TAP again."

Pros: "I liked being able to exit the plane at the end of the flight"
Cons: "The seats were cramped and it’s upsetting how you can’t select your own. Flying overseas for 7 plus hours it’s best not to be sandwiched in between two strangers, some of which were vomiting the entire flight due to turbulence that the pilot announced would only be minor."

Pros: "Our flight was late, so we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona, but TAP had already rebooked us on a different flight and had boarding passes all printed out. Good Job."

Pros: "The leg room"
Cons: "The lack of entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The terminals they use have no express lanes for biz travel. Very stressful particularly if short layover time."

Cons: "The flight was delayed."

Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight crew could have been more polite"

Cons: "We were advised as we boarded that there would be no meal/snack service on the 3 hour flight. There was no time to purchase food at this time. It would have been good to have a big sign in the check in desk or a PA announcement so passengers could make alternate arrangements."

Cons: "Need bigger pillows!"

Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."

Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was terrible."

Pros: "They fed us and provided good entertainment. Seats have plenty of room and are comfortable."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Exceptional service and professionalism of crew. Food was delicious...Aircraft was clean. Left on time...landed half hour early. It was a perfect flight."
Cons: "My husbands snoring. LOL."

Pros: "Both meals very nice. Crew members pleasant"
Cons: "Food served a bit late"

Cons: "Late arrival in Lisbon, missed our connecting flight to Munich."
