Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "It was too warm. The air above was not cool"
Cons: "Even the layover was good. Seeing the northern lights from.the plane was spectacular"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Crews were rude, no free snacks, they even charge you for headphones"
Cons: "Small not comfortable plane"
Pros: "Clean plane. Decent movie/TV selections on-board."
Cons: "Stewardesses were not very friendly and snapped at passengers a couple of times."
Pros: "The air was working and it wasn’t hot and the plane wasn’t sold out so there was some room."
Cons: "Boarding the plane process."
Pros: "Same as before"
Cons: "Same as previously stated"
Pros: "We arrived only about an hour late?"
Cons: "We boarded late which seems to be the norm for Iceland air. Usually when an airline is a few minutes late departing they try and explain why and then make up the time, but we received no explanation for the late boarding, or the even later departure, or for why we lost even more time in the air."
Pros: "The attendants are all nice and efficient!"
Pros: "Entertainment center has newer releases"
Cons: "Extra baggage fee, no space for carry on, boarding zones 1st to 5th - no bin space within 5 rows by the time zone 5 boarded"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "When we booked through Kayak we were not told that there was a very large additional fee for baggage- even more since we stopped in Iceland."
Pros: "You’re going for no frills. Competitive pricing maybe but consider baggage situation first. We went transatlantic and paid for a bag using economy light fare to make it work. Only needed one checked bag. Kids even in economy light get a free meal - though none are heated. Cabin is ok. Flight attendants were nice. even asked another passenger to move so I could have a seat for my lo infant even though I hadn’t paid for a seat for him. There was space of the flight so I didn’t feel badly about this. WiFi was affordae and generally reliable. I had a turkey pretzel bread wedge that was tasty."
Cons: "Witnessed many customers checking in who thought a bag was included. Entertainment is ok but screens have limited kid activities. Each leg of my flight took off 15-20 min late easily. Overall this wasn’t bad as it was made up in-air. Except one layover was only an hour, And cut it a bit close clearing passport control and traveling with two kids. No time to even see Kaflavik or pick up food or drinks. We ran to the final boarding call after clearing passport control. Also not good was that they don’t offer gate check on strollers. On a departure, you can use your stroller all the way up to the gate, but you get it back with any checked baggage at baggage claim, so you won’t have a stroller for layovers in Keflavík or clearing customs on either end. That was a pain. Strollers came up after all baggage. Not good for traveling families. Kids should be first especially after a 6 hour flight which was probably a second leg."
Pros: "I loved that when I checked in online I was given the opportunity to take a seat with extra leg room. Service was great."
Cons: "The connection in Reykjavik does make the flight from Gatwick to Washington rather long but it also gave me the opportunity to see some new views and stop off for a tour on a previous flight."
Pros: "Great options for entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding procedures in Iceland. A bit chaotic."
Pros: "I was so tired during my day flight that I put on my eye mask and neck pillow and went to sleep. A flight attendant was thoughtful enough to put a blanket on me, which I appreciated as it was quite cold."
Pros: "Available movies at no charge. Plug ins to restore device power"
Cons: "Hour long delay followed by tarmac bus drop off and boarding to wrong plane. We then got back on the bus and drove around in circles for 10 minutes until the correct plane was located."
Cons: "Charging for every moment of the experience is certainly one way to go for Iceland Air. I get that their economy hit rock bottom, but this isn't the way to get out of global financial crisis."
Pros: "Spacious and great service. I will fly Icelandic again."
Pros: "The seats are wide with plenty of leg room. The crew is lovely and come around offering water many times throughout the flight (no food is included though)."
Cons: "The boarding process was very long In Iceland. They asked us to line up about 15 minutes before they started checking boarding passes Then, they made you wait for an extra ten minutes until they opened the doors to get on the bus, which was parked outside the door the entire time. Once we got on the bus we had to wait another ten minutes until it pulled away from the gate. Took about 35-40 mins from the time we got in line until we sat down in our plane seats. My friend’s tv screen stopped working after 15 minutes so we had to share mine for the rest of the 6 hours."
Pros: "The whole flight was wonderful, food, we got a meat and cheese box, was great. Movie options were great. We got pillows and blankets and free water. The flight attendants were wonderful and always very helpful."
Cons: "A couple of things happened that brought down the scoring if these didn't happen the score would be higher. First.they lost/forgot to put my luggage on the plane. When we got to Newark there was a guy waiting for me and told me my luggage was still in Iceland. Not a huge inconvenience because I was home, but was was irritating was that we paid for an extra bag but they lost my bag. I feel i should get reimbursed the charge for the inconvenience. I'll take this up with the airline directly."
Pros: "Inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "No inflight meals"
Pros: "Great flight , no issues whatsoever"
Cons: "Wish there was some free food!"
Pros: "Not much..."

Cons: "No snacks on a seven plus hour flight?"
Cons: "My entertainment system stopped working 1/2 way through the flight and there was very little leg room that caused back pain"
Pros: "Let’s just hope that you could runI like the fact that the airport was small, because if it was any bigger out of missed my flight"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that that where bus was too fast couple of people almost fell also the stairs to get in the airplane were very slippery"
Cons: "Icelandair need to re-assess their policy and start feeding their passengers. It’s was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Quick check in, friendly crew"
Cons: "Tickets booked together but seats given separately on our bound flight. While coming back to Newark seats were together but off duty crew members were sitting across and chatted loudly for the whole flight insensitive to needs of passengers"
Pros: "After a long journey overall, it was nice to have an easy plane ride to Iceland!"
Cons: "The flight was fine, but it took over an hour to obtain our luggage! Was probably an issue with Newark airport staff, not Icelandair. No idea what the problem was, except that an announcement was made about 45 minutes after debarking that the delay was "weather-related". Huh?? They can't remove luggage from a plane in the rain? I would gladly have gone on the tarmack in my raingear to retrieve my bag rather than wait over an hour. We had a family member waiting for us for 2 hours!"
Pros: "Once on board, the flight was fine."
Cons: "Packed airport made boarding difficult and prolonged. Didn’t have the personnel to handle boarding a full flight."
Pros: "Nice airport in Iceland."
Cons: "Sat directly behind premium economy. Must have given the extra leg room from my row. Much more crowded than the other rows I say in on previous flight legs. Check seat guru when confirming seat location."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old movies. Only allowed one small bottle of water. The gate was packed, hugely overcrowded."
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport was the worst for lines, delays, and boarding, You are bused to and from the terminal/plane."
Pros: "The in flight wifi"
Cons: "5-6 hour flight with no complimentary meal or snack? Not to mention the 40 minute delay! Next time, I will choose a different airline. I expected better from Icelandair, very disappointed."
Cons: "The luggage waitbin newark is a joke. Really a joke , hour wait for luggage? How is that possible?"
Cons: "Unfortunately we were herded into a tiny waiting area, pushed up against one another waiting for a bus to take us to the plane. The wait was unnecessarily long and the room very hot. Then again we were held in a crampt and very warm bus to the aircraft. Passengers inside the bus, pushed open some of the windows to give us a little fresh cool air. Finally we exited into the rain and wind to very slowly board the aircraft in no order, which led to people standing out on a slick staircase getting rather wet prior to entering. One of the worst boarding plans I've experienced."
Pros: "Staff was very nice and I loved that I actually didn't' have to pay for luggage. I was also offered a free drink."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "There is only food for purchase on this long flight, and they ran out of vegetarian option before they got to me."
Pros: "The plane made it to the destination."
Cons: "No complimentary snacks. Food for purchase was not good."
Cons: "Had to pay for food , tv stopped working mid flight , no organization for boarding on to plane"
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Airport in Iceland is chaos. Both flights were late, which put us in Newark later than expected, which could have caused us to miss our connector to mid-west. No control to boarding in Iceland."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Then couldn't get my bag and waited for over an hour"
Pros: "Excellnt service, fast boarding, great communication"
Cons: "Took a while to take off,"
Pros: "It was a fast trip, comfortable cabin, smooth ride, nice staff."
Cons: "The keflavik airport is the worst! No places to sit, and the boaesing process just simply doesn't exist. People queue up wherever and a try to push to get on board. Also the music selection didn't work on our journey."
Pros: "I liked having the entertainment system."
Cons: "Charging of food."
Pros: "Generally well run and a pleasant experience."
Pros: "The crew was super nice. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "My gluten free meal had a carrot cake... the first ingredient was Wheat! If you have any type of allergy do not trust their food!"
Cons: "Hand luggage weighing queue delayed flight, Gatwick flights delays, missing luggage at Lisbon,"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good. The hot meal was very good."
Cons: "We would have appreciated water being served between the meals; it was a very long time with nothing.The cold meal was just ok. We paid extra for our seats and were very disappointed at being stuck in the middle where it is difficult to move or get up. It would have been nice to be able to actually"
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: "The seats do recline, more space than Delta or United"
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."
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: "In flight meal was one of the best I have ever had."
Cons: "Could not choose when to start a movie. If you wanted to watch one, you had to turn it on from the beginning or you would start in the middle. Plane could have been cooler as well."
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: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Pros: "I was on a 7 hour flight and the TAP airline service was very good. I had requested a vegan meal and they were able to accommodate me with no problem. Also they had a great selection of movies."
Cons: "I didn’t like that all the soap dispensers in both bathrooms were empty the whole flight. But good thing for the wet naps they offered and antibacterial I had in my purse."
Cons: "Though the weather was fine - no excuse - the 7 hours delay! the fact that instead of landing in Newark (my original reservation), we landed in JFK! VERY INCONVENIENT AND AN EXTRA EXPENSE! The fact that in Lisbon airport I had to wait more than one hour to reach the help desk and then plead to receive a voucher for refreshment (left Madeira on an early flight, no breakfast on that flight, the flight to NY delayed till 5 PM!). I chose TAP because it was the most direct way to reach Madeira - but the delays on both flights were more than unfortunate - it was simply poor service."
Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for my only bag! Didn’t know it wasn’t in the coat of the ticket"
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!"
Cons: "flight was delayed. ended up missing our flight from newark home."
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."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't come around with anything to drink, except with meals. All international flights I have been on offer multiple drinks through the flight. They charged $80 for a suitcase. This was not a discounted ticket."
Pros: "Friendly and kind captain and crew"
Cons: "I was very very sick, so after the 3 hours delay I asked to stay in Lisbon and be sending next day to continue my journey home ... Surprisingly TAP told me that they could pay the hotel in Newark, but not in Lisbon.. Go figure! Called TAP Customer Service 4 times, 2 from Lisbon 2 from Newark... all cases more than 1 hour wait... AND THEY NEVER EVER ANSWERED!?!?!"
Cons: "1) I tried several times while traveling but was unable to figure out how to choose a vegetarian option for the flight. When I called customer service, after a long hold time, the woman I finally spoke to told me it was too late to order vegetarian and refused to help me. I have never flown another airline (Air India, Turkish Air, United, American, China Southern, etc., etc.) that did not make this easy to choose during booking or check-in and that did not already have a standard ovo-lacto vegetarian option on the regular menu. Vegetarians practice for all sorts of reasons, including religion and health needs. It's unacceptable to make it so difficult to meet your meal needs while trapped on a plane for nine hours. 2) The check-in agent did not know the rule about all remaining seats being opened for passenger choice three hours before booking and insisted we had to pay to get aisle seats despite one of us having a health problem necessitating her standing up and walking every 45 minutes. Then another agent told us we couldn't choose seats for free for our Porto to Newark flight when we check in for our Madrid-Porto flight because it wasn't technically three hours before the Porto-Newark departure. But how were we supposed to choose seats for the Porto-Newark flight three hours in advance if we are in an airplane flying to Porto at that time? This makes no sense. Seats should be opened for every leg of a same-day journey at the same time. The agents were unhelpful and unsympathetic. 3) This was an old plane without options to choose a film or show to watch. Instead, passengers could flip through a few channels and hope to find something of interest that was already playing -- there was no way to begin a film or show from the beginning if you landed on it in the middle of its running time. I cannot recommend TAP Portugal to any of my friends, family, or colleagues after this experience."
Cons: "I have traveled to and from Portugal in TAP for many years and never ever did I have to pay for a checked bag till this year. It is totally a robbery to be charging people for 1 checked bag of only 50lbs. not only is it ridiculous but robbery. You charge a lot of money for the flights as it is and to go and charge people to check a bag on an international flight is insane. It is to bad I have to fly back with you because I will not be flying with you ever again after this I will take my money elsewhere. Also you need to let people know that they are being charged for luggage when the are booking their flight because when I booked my flight nowhere did it say I had to pay for my luggage. It already was rediculous that we are only aloud 1 50lb bag checked and now you want people to pay for it too? Pretty soon you minus well have people just get on a plane naked!!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Food and snacks were good. Very attentive crew."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "I like the flight per se and the crew attention"
Cons: "The boarding process. It was slow, disorganized, didn't take off on time and some people were rude including the searching process that I enter voluntarily because nobody directed me. I when you schedule a flight you should try to take off on time because it can be disruptive for everyone. And when you sell discount tickets at least say you are going to charge 45 dollars for the bag... i wouldn't purchase any discount offer"
Pros: "Employees are very nice."
Cons: "Wouldn't let people approach the desk to ask questions before boarding. Crew very un pleasant and forceful throughout the trip. Would not look forward to flying with TAP again."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Long flight uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Time in the air was fine, efficient once we arrived in Newark and bags arrived fairly quickly. Check-in counter in Lisbon were a little tricky to find (around the corner with no signs posted...) but it was efficient."
Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous. Went through security and then a second security screening at the gate when everything was gone through for a lot more than random folks. Then getting on a bus to board the flight instead of a jetway? I thought TAP was Portugal's national airline and had priority space at Lisbon..apparently not. No soap in the bathrooms on the plane! Ran out of diet soda (and we weren't at the back of the plane). On the way over, the flight attendants gave us conflicting instructions about our toddle sons's ability to sleep on the floor or on our laps. The entertainment system didn't work."
Pros: "Food, seats, flight attendants & in flight entertainment were all very good."
Pros: "So accommodating!! Top of the line!"
Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Cons: "Filthy dirty airport, club and plane. No power in the seats to boot. Clown show. Never again see above."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was a n extensive selection of great movies to choose from."
Cons: "There were 2 screaming children in the row next to me. The parents did not handle themselves well. On the brightside, the crew did everything they could to help better the situation."
Pros: "Flight staff was great, service was top notch. food was surprisingly good, red wine included in your ticket. movie choice was good. coach seat was as manageable for a long flight. you pretty much know what your getting yourself into flying coach overseas. this was a pretty good seat."
Cons: "We flew thru about an hour straight of moderate turbulence but i'm guessing that was unavoidable. Checkin was a bit weird, they had a gate change and never announced it. Fortunately, i checked the board. about 6 of us had been at the other gate for a long while."
Pros: "Great flight! Unexpectedly good amount of food and good entertainment. On time. Seats were comfortable w good room."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty disorganized and crowded and seemed like it took even longer than it normally takes. we were lined up for a while before boarding initiated."
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Service was poor, the seat was not comfortable."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "No air from above. Just an all around bad flight with so many problems."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Very friendly crew. Coach seating comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "It wasn't at all the airline's fault, but this flight saw random searches at the gate of carry-on luggage + patdowns of selected passengers. I understand fully the imperatives for security, However it would be nice if there were some way to signal passengers that they might want to get to the gate early...... Fortunately I'd experienced it before (same flight out of Lisbon) and knew there was a good chance of a repeat...."
Pros: "Generally good and professional."
Cons: "One washroom was permanent;y dirty because the FLUSH mechanism wasn't performing well. Another washroom was permanently locked - causing higher traffic in the remaining washrooms."
Cons: "this was a very last minute flight to return home. It was cancelled within hours. I am very disappointed."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Out of the 100+ flights I've been on in my life. TAP Portugal has been the worst and least professional."
Cons: "My first flight from Madrid to Portugal was cancelled (at midnight) so I had to sleep in the terminal because the bus they provided to the hotel couldn't take all of us. Then my flight to New Jersey was delayed several hours making me miss my next flight to Denver (home) and I had to spend a 2nd night in the terminal. I never received and hotel/food/taxi vouchers. I will do everything to avoid flying with TAP Portugal ever again."
Pros: "Nice flight, clean planes, decent amount of beverages/food provided, good TVs"
Pros: "Excellent portuguese food served on board, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My entertainment console did not work for the entire 8 hour flight, and to make matters worse the screen kept flashing a bright white light every 30 seconds or so, preventing me from sleeping. I had to tell 3-4 crew members for them to at least broadcast a movie to my seat to make the flashing stop. I was also seated right next to the bathroom, which usually isn't so bad, but since most of the passengers were elderly, it was being used literally nonstop for the majority of the flight. The crew only briefly cleaned it once... I was seated next to a screaming toddler as well. This isn't really the airline's fault, but it certainly didn't help. I felt like I did not get my money's worth for this flight and that it was a poor experience."
Pros: "Good in every way"
Pros: "Very comfortable."
Cons: "All was good."
