Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Due to a hurricane, I actually missed my original flight date, but Aer Lingus allowed me to rebook (2 days later!) at no cost, which was really great of them. Absolutely no wait at check-in and very good service there. Got window seats on both legs of flight, with no one in my row. Meals on first flight leg were very good. Crew did a good job and made me confident of their work. Both flight legs arrived early. Everything went well. Very good airline - I will certainly fly with them again."
Cons: "It seems that there was no snack or beverage on the second leg of flight (ca. 3 hours), but I probably just slept through it. Price seemed high for this route and season, but it was much better than any other airline: flying has become expensive in the COVID era. But Aer Lingus keeps us moving ahead. Great job!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, quick check in, very nice flight"
Pros: "Nothing. Lost money on flight"
Cons: "Refunding our flight and not stealing our money during the pandemic"
Pros: "I never got on the flight as there is a global pandemic and a mandate for NY'ers not to travel. The worst part is that I don't think I'm getting a refund."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful on land and on the plane. Very supportive and helpful."
Cons: "Good service cold have come sooner, I wanted to sleep as much as possible but it was a full 2 hours before the service finished."
Cons: "The flight was perfect, easy on, easy off, on time, smooth comfortable flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our bags were lost, no apologies (in fact, the phone was put down on me twice), when the bags were returned after 24 hours, one was damaged and had to be replaced at my expense....no chance of a refund. My family and I will NEVER TRAVEL WITH AER LINGUS AGAIN....the worst airline in the world"
Cons: "The flight was canceled hours before departure. I waited for 30 minutes on hold to see if I could get on a different flight. But they couldn’t get me to my destination for 2-3 days after my originally-scheduled arrival."
Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work for me"
Cons: "Flight was good. Kayak service terriible. First time user and I’ll never use it again. Who wants to deal with a third third part. Information was not translated properly and resulted in my wife and I on separate flight."
Pros: "Friendly boarding crew, the plane was bigger and more comfortable than many airlines use for such short flights"
Cons: "My luggage was mishandled and left in Dublin."
Cons: "It was a short flight, but we had to walk literally a mile (I measured it with my fitbit) to get to the gate to board. Manchester security is frustrating...they follow different rules. Turns out you DO have to have your camera and ANY electronics (European converter, batteries, charging stations) placed outside your carry on. Only place that did it. And then they kept me in security for over an hour to have 3 different levels of security ask me the same questions over and over again. Don't know why they flagged me...maybe a false positive...as usual they won't tell you a damn thing. But the security guys weren't bad people..just been given their orders."
Cons: "Person in front kept seat reclined the entire time. Grrrrr"
Pros: "Great new seats"
Pros: "The flight was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "The packaged meals are never the best, but the breakfast box was good."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful and considerate."
Cons: "Breakfast was disappointing, I would prefer something savoury. As another passenger commented ... "It was not worth being woken up for a muffin and juice." The entertainment was excellent, however the screen lit up repeatedly for announcements about an offer of connectivity while we were all trying to sleep. Those who had wished to avail of it had probably done so long before. It was quite annoying and intrusive."

Cons: "Shack in process was confusing and went awry taking forecer."
Pros: "Very comfortable Transfer in Dublin very easy Everyone very helpful"
Cons: "No free alcohol on an international flight?!?!"
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Not enough legroom I felt like a sardine"
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: "Good company good films and service"
Cons: "Some of the food"
Pros: "Staff quite friendly Nice plane. Had 3 seat to myself"
Cons: "Once again I had no choice of meal as my seat was at the last row"
Pros: "I liked that we got dinner and breakfast included and that food was actually tasty."
Cons: "- disorganized flight info from the moment it's booked. Was under the impression i was paying for a British airline flight, not Aer Lingus - feels like a budget airline at a premium price - broken everything from chair to very poor seat design and situating, bathroom door was broken and was exposed to the toilet the whole flight -flight attendant service and attitude was beyond lousy. - never will i book from kayak or webjet every again."
Pros: "Friendly and professional service from the flight crew, the food was fine, and the flight was not too crowded."

Pros: "Flight was not full"
Cons: "My bags are lost and no one is helping me I'm very frustrated ."
Pros: "The biz class seat was good."
Cons: "Disorganized / messy check-in."
Cons: "This was the first time in my life that an airline lost my luggage. I finally got it back 2 days later but it was a very stressful experience."
Pros: "Very professional, friendly, on time, food was fine"
Cons: "Took very long to retrieve checked luggage....from time we landed - to deplane, secure luggage, tram to long term parking and leaving lot took over 1 hour. Most of the time was waiting for luggage on turnstile...."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment system--so many great movies & tv shows to choose from but the earphones were so bad I couldn't hear any of it."
Cons: "We were delayed on the plane for almost 3 hours and it was uncomfortable at times because it was warm and stuffy on board. Pilot did his best to get the air going again. Crew was great."
Pros: "Good movie selection, not bad food,"
Cons: "Flight arrival time, not a fan of the red-eye."
Pros: "Comfortable flat seats. Nice staff"
Pros: "I liked the straightforward flight home. Always friendly staff."
Cons: "I also loved that my return flight was changed to a much better convenient time ar no extra cost. I recommend this site for anyone to book their flights and hotels.."
Pros: "The flights were on time."
Cons: "Since I booked with vayama, through kayak, aerlingus wouldn't give me more than basic flight info. I didn't even know if my seats were confirmed, which they weren't on the connecting flight with JetBlue airlines. The website said to contact vayama, vayam said contact the airline. Our bags were not checked through to our destination so we had to collect them in New York. They are supposedly partner airlines but told us we had no choice and had to wait till aerlingus opened customer service. We were stuck for 7 hours outside of security with our bags and 1 Duncan donuts kiosk. The 12 hr overall layover was bad enough without that. I understand that booking through discount sites comes with its own cost, but you should know if you have assigned seats and that your baggage will make it."
Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew. They were calm, professional and incredibly kind. We had along our 10 month old baby and they were so welcoming and helpful with her. The best crew I've ever interacted with on a flight."
Pros: "The crew were leaders. So much when you fly these days the crew don't take a leadership role. I don't mean, become mean - I mean to be a true leader. Say what needs to be said but don't say it mean."
Cons: "The plane was cold at times. The breakfast muffin could have been healthier....the ingredients were a bit off putting..too much sugar and artificial ingredients!!"
Cons: "Gate agents were quite rude"
Pros: "blankets were about as thick as toilet paper. Seats were really cramped, and difficult to sleep in. pillows felt like sandpaper, breakfast was unimpressive. Asked for an extra blanket and was told no, even though I saw many when I was leaving the plane. Young daughter was shivering while trying to sleep. Really bad experience."
Pros: "That I got to visit a place as mystical as Iceland for such a low and affordable flight. My departure flight with Iceland Air was on time and although the return was a bit tardy the company did an excellent job with being transparent."
Cons: "The flight crew could have been a bit more polite"
Cons: "Food options"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Seat a little hard."
Cons: "An included breakfast would have been appreciated."
Cons: "temperature in the airplane cabin was much too warm with too little air flow. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Even though we were not rushed between flights, our luggage didn't make it onto the plane."
Cons: "The crew didn’t offer me a drink"
Cons: "Please provide good and reasonable price inflight food. Also seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great. I mostly slept through the whole flight, but they were very welcoming."
Cons: "I probably should have paid more for a more comfy seat."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Didn’tknow I had to buy a meal on the flight or I would have bought a nice one in the airport"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "There was a USB port to charge my devicw"
Cons: "The service was minimal, they only offered water when you got on the plain and once at the end of the flight."
Cons: "The terminal at JFK was a nightmare. Crowded. Overheated. Filthy. And no electrical outlets anywhere."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "No spirits unless you buy. Bring food or you ll starve"
Cons: "Boarding was late by one and a half hours. Almost missed my connection flight in Reykyavik. First time on an International flight they did not serve any food, not even snacks. And there was no indication when booking the ticket (which was about $700) that there wouldn't be any meals. Even the selection to purchase was poor. In a 5+ hour flight the crew passed only once with beverages. They completely turned off the lights during the entire duration of the flight. Overall, by far the worst International flight I have ever been on. I wont choose Icelandair again. And I will let my colleagues know about my experience."
Pros: "People were nice"
Cons: "No food even on a transatlantic flight. Seats small"
Pros: "flight attendants uniforms"
Cons: "Bare minimum no headphones no snack-even pretzels/peanuts one drink really awful bare bones"
Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover. Layover was a bit more excruciating on the second leg."
Pros: "Free food box for kids."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "I paid a ridiculous amount for it"
Pros: "Comfort was good as well as refreshements"
Cons: "Representative at JFK told me my connecting flight to Brussels would be delayed as a result of the first leg being delayed. Upon arrival to KEF I discovered my second leg departed without me. Please be sure that your representatives do not LIE to customers as it is misleading and unnecessary. I usually have great experiences with this airline and this misinformation was rather disappointing."
Pros: "I have never flown overseas without getting some dinner and breakfast. On this flight, we were given bottled water as we boarded and later could get another free beverage, but if you wanted food, you had to pay for it. Did get comfy blanket though!"
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours and stuck on the tarmac with little to no updates. Needless to say, we missed our connecting flight to the final destination and were not treated kindly upon arrival by the "help" desk. I am an experienced and regular traveler, but I will most likely never fly Icelandair after this."
Cons: "My flight was handed to American Airlines and it's been a nightmare with my flight being delayed multiple times, then cancelled and rebooked. I missed an entire in Paris including stay that I payed for."
Cons: "It took three attempts to land. First Manchester, then Liverpool and finally (after declaring a fuel emergency) back at Manchester. Everyone knew a storm was brewing so why didn't the plane have extra fuel on board in case of a diversion?"
Pros: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."
Pros: "nothing, but previously I've had great experience with this airline"
Cons: "They cancelled this ticket. I was unable to make a flight on the first ticket due to a business partner being ill (blood pressure issues). I then purchased a premium economy comfort ticket for the next day, also on IcelandAir, which was TWICE the cost of my original deal yet they would not honor my ticket. It really was quite disgusting and handled very badly. There was a medical situation that cost me far more than and then they would not honor my ticket to Manchester, so I had to fly WOWair to Bristol UK instead."
Cons: "Avoid if you prefer being able to sit down."
Pros: "Flight good. Missed the pay for food trolley, so didn't eat."
Cons: "Reykavic airport has the least amenities I have ever experienced. Very few seats in the lounge. Most are forced to stand or lie on the floor. Don't think that getting through the gate will mean getting on plane, it's too another waiting room with a few seats, mainly standing. The airport has no seated restaurants or cafes. So getting off a plane hungry id not pleasant. I will never again fly to and from New York via this 'airport'"
Pros: "Entertainment, comfortable"
Cons: "Far too warm, there was no way to cool down (no air vent by the seatbelt fastening light) and the flight was very very delayed."
Pros: "All was smooth and comfortable. Thanks"
Cons: "Plane was too warm. Air conditioning was set much too high. Uncomfortable to us. No way to set air vents."
Pros: "Service was great and all went exactly as planned. No delays!"
Cons: "When we boarded in Reykjavik al was fine until the pilot announced that the bag sorting machinery was malfunctioning. We were told we'd be delayed while 18 bags were found and sorted by hand. Then it was 14. And an hour later, we left. Apparently it was still five. That is how many of us were still waiting at the carousel when all the bags had come off. I suspect Iceland Air decided that was an acceptable number and sent us on knowing that they hadn't found all the bags. I did eventually get my bag... six days later and after quite a few unanswered messages. That is partly because Iceland subcontracts list bag service to a company called THS, which again subcontracts delivery to a company called APC. All of these appear allergic to caulking US numbers. Iceland Air for the win."
Pros: "Good service. Good onboard entertainment. Good seats"
Cons: "I wish I had more leg room"
Cons: "Although I paid for a confirmed seat and chose my seat 6 months in advance, when 24 hour check-in rolled around I was told I had been moved to standby and would thus only have a seat if there were any left once everyone else had checked in. I had to wait until I arrived at the airport the day of to even find out if I had a seat. There were only two left when I checked in, so I just barely got on the flight. I had originally chosen a seat next to a friend traveling with me in the middle of the cabin, in the end I got a seat in the very back of the plane- no room in the overhead bins since they were reserved for flight equipment, couldn't recline, and was right by the kitchen, so it was too noisy to sleep. When I called customer service to try to fix all of this, in the middle of explaining my problem (after waiting on hold for an hour) I was told to stop talking and that it was the rep's turn to talk. In addition to not getting my problem resolved, he hung up on me! Worst treatment I've ever received on an airpline, and I've flown thousands of times on dozens of airlines. Once this trip is over I am never flying Icelandic again!"
Pros: "Service was good, no real complaints"
Cons: "It was very warm, and trying to sleep while sweating is never fun....not sure why there aren't personal vents on that plane!"
Pros: "I liked the idea of having a layover in Iceland."
Cons: "Really, this airline sets a new level of bad amongst a skyfull of many bad airlines. It's no longer worth the little money saved (very little) to fly on this airline."
Pros: "Crew pleasent"
Cons: "Delayed almost 3hrs Ny. Delayed in Iceland also. Kept apologizing Seats extremely uncomfortable for 1st leg of flight Delayed again in Glasgow and delayed in Iceland. Let us off plane in Iceland in cold waiting for bus to terminal. Terminal very crowded"
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "you had to pay for everything...."
Pros: "pillow, blanket, bottled water were all standard service which most airlines do not offer. friendly and professional staff. great movie options on tv."
Pros: "quiet and clean.. no turbulence"
Cons: "I spend a lot of money on tickets and it seems like a glass of wine would be a nice gesture by the airline to say thanks for coming, we are glad you are here, relax."
Pros: "Professional, helpful staff and the plane was very clean. Blankets and pillows were waiting for us and water was provided as we boarded. I needed assistance to get around the airports and someone was waiting for me with a wheel chair at each stop. Wonderful flight at a reasonable cost."
"Didn’t travel because you changed my dates completely which was not suitable. Then you told me I couldn’t change them back or get a different flight, using lastminute.com. Then you wouldn’t give me full refund even though you were at fault! You then made me have to buy more flights and travel from a an airport over 300miles from my house. I will never use lastminute.com or TAP Portugal again. I still haven’t received my full refund. Disgusting!"
Pros: "Crew very good nice fligth too"
Cons: "Transfer time in Lisbon"
Cons: "The crew did not know the law about child safety seats. They tried to inform us we could not use it, even though it is approved for air travel. Then they tried to tell us we had to face it forward, which is illegal and it cannot be secured like this. Then they told us the car seat needed to be against the fuselage, but that all the fuselage seats were taken. They did not offer a solution to this problem. I informed them this was TAP's fault for assigning those seats to us. They said they were not responsible, which is clearly wrong. They could have reassigned us at check-in and avoided the problem. They were very concerned about the ability of the person in front of us to recline their seat, but no interested at all in the safety of our baby. They told us we would not be able to use the seat, although our baby was already asleep. They were trying to find a way to make us leave the plane. Finally, some other passengers volunteered to move so we could sit against the fuselage with nobody in the seats in front of us, so we would not block them from reclining. A solution would not have been found by the crew. Only thanks to generous passengers were we able to stay on the plane, even though we were doing everything completely legally. They made my pregnant wife feel so bad that she cried for the first hour of the flight. Then, as the flight was concluding, our baby got airsick and vomited. They crew did nothing to help aside from bring 3 (!) napkins and then leave again. Incredibly unhelpful, mean, ignorant, and combative cabin crew. Truly appalling."
Cons: "We booked business class. JFK to LIS very nice. Seats were very comfortable and reclined flat. More leg room than in other business class seats. What they called business from LIS to Rome was just regular uncomfortable across economy seats with no one in the middle seat."
Pros: "Everything !!!! No delayed seat was great food great multi média great"
Pros: "New plane, clean, entertainment system was state of the art."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very nice. Seemed to not want to be there. Service was nearly not existent."
Cons: "Flight delayed but otherwise it was good! Maybe entertainment such as tv monitors or inflight entertainment upgrade."
Pros: "Plane was fairly modern inside with power sockets and usb sockets for each seat."
Cons: "Checkin was a total computer and staff failure. Checkin staff really bad and unhelpful Boarding was late. Mechanical delays over an hour. Late flight. Flight attendants forcing you to put bags under seat in front of you instead of overhead bin. Bad lunch. Some attendants poor attitudes."
Pros: "The crew was kind and the flight ok. They wanted to charge me 120.00 USD for my one bag checked ONE WAY. 240.00 USD round trip for one checked bag!!!!! On their website it clearly states one free checked bag for ALL FLIGHTS xcept “discount” fares. No way to prove I purchased “basic”"
Cons: "They lied. The website does not clearly state that you will be CHARGED FOR CHECKED BAGS. Warning!!"
Pros: "Plane was clean & crew were kind"
Pros: "The staff, the linens, the fruit"
Cons: "Bigger bathroom, more padded seat with adjustable bolster"
Pros: "Everything was very good."
Cons: "Paid thousands of dollars for this trip and my luggage is missing as tap Portugal convinently lost it."
Pros: "Much better than I expected, will fly again with pleasure."
Pros: "The business class seating was very comfortable and the flight attendants were super friendly and helpful. A good list of movies."
Cons: "Shame that the lounge at the JFK airport was closed."
Pros: "The fact that it was a direct flight."
Cons: "First of all, I would like to start by saying that I flight with TAP very often. I guess you can check on your system. I had good experiences in the past and actually recommeded to friends/family. I hope this flight was an exception. A few things were not that good this time. 1) First of all, the online check-in wasn't working until a few hours before the flight, and I didn't even give me the option to choose my seat. Once in the plane, I noticed plenty of empty seats in several areas of the plane. I could have had a much better seat. Also, the fact that the price of the luggage in the ticket is not included is insane! They let you know right at the boarding area. Another 100 plus dollars in addition to the 1,6000 that I paid for the ticket. Incredible!! And they only gave us 15 dollars voucher!! 2) There was a 2 hours delay due to a storm in the south of the USA. Although I am fully understandable with the fact that this situation is out of hands for the TAP company, is it in their hands the care and wellbeing of their passengers. As previoulsy stated, I received a 15 dollars voucher to use becasue of the delay. At any airport, for any decent meal, you will pay a minimum of 25-30 dollars. All items are more expensive. While waiting in the gate to board, we were not offered with snacks, water, etc.. additionally, no announements or updates at all. 3) I had a very uncofortable situation with one of the filght attenders. Male, very tall, dark hair and dark skin. When distributing dinner, I found the way he approached me very disrespectul, ironic and dismissive. ZERO customer services and he is actually the face of TAP in these planes. Unaceptable. I have to look all the way up to him, he wouldn't make an effort to band a bit (of course, not completely) to at least try to hear what I was saying. He was requesting me to speak loud but he would not make a minimum effort to get close to me. His demeanor and attitude made me feel very upsted... abuse of power... to the pooint that I ended up not taking the meal. No manners at all. He should understand that after hours of waiting (check-in usual time plus the 2 hours delay) we were all very tired. Particularly at that timeof the day. Some of us where up for since earlyi in the moring and you could tell that most of the passengers were exhausted. The second we got into our seat, we all used our blankets and try to sleep. He was not empathetic or councious about that. I felt very uncomfortable. Both of the girls that were also in the back area of the plane, were also lacking manners and customer services. I don't know.. other times was much better."
Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"
Cons: "I paid to select my seats which were 2 window and two aisle seats. I was assigned 2 aisle and 2 middle seats. I paid extra to acoid middle seats and I would like a refund."
Pros: "First off I'd never heard of this airline but that was ok because we (group travel) were originally booked on another aiine I'd never heard if before either called Nirwegian. Well less than 24 hrs before we were scheduled to fly out, the exact same day, they cancel our flight! After a lot of phone calls and wait times we were booked onto TAP AIR PORTUGAL. Easy check in, my carry on was great, entertainment was on point, food was good (first European trip), crew was nice, plane was huge; just a good experience overall. I will definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Bags didn’t arrive"
Pros: "Given the weather in the UK we were expecting delays but we were pleasantly surprised! It was one of the smoothest journeys we have ever had from leaving our hotel to getting home and TAP featured highly in this. We even landed 35mins ahead of schedule - amazing flight with lovely crew."
Cons: "If I have to be picky I would ask that the crew on board speak more slowly when providing inflight information, particularly when English is not their first language as us oldies have difficulty understanding what is being said."
Cons: "CRew was rude. Food was poor.checked baggage fees exhorbitant"
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: "Great experience"
Cons: "Crew was helpful. Flights were on time and overall experience was very good."
Pros: "The food and entertainment was good. We got into the plane ver quickly and we were seated towards the front"
Cons: "I have been flying for a while but it is so difficult to find out what fare class you have. the website is not helpful with bag check in information. $90 is way too much to check in a bag especially for an international flight the line at Lisbon for passports is way too long"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, we boarded on time and landed a bit early which was nice. We recieved little snack packs that had a sandwich and a granola bar or fruit snacks and a juice."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable to sleep on for 6 hours as they didn't recline back too much but that is to be expected in 2nd class seats."
Cons: "Kayak needs to inform us passengers that the price doesn’t include checked in luggage. It’s a very unpleasant surprise to find out that one has to pay 180$ on top only to have luggage. That’s unacceptable"
Pros: "Cancelled our flight, at 4am. Did not give a reasonX"
Pros: "On time and waited for our connection from Miami without any fuss"
Cons: "Comfortable seats but very luttle legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 5 hours"
Cons: "I booked these tickets for my friends Jamal Wiggins and Anthony Maxwell and they are still Lisbon. They are still in Lisbon! Their flight, 1306, had been delayed for almost 6 hours. The gate keeps changing and they've been getting ther run around all day. No food vouchers. This is horrendous. I am here at Prague airport. We only have a few days here and now one day is gone. They should be reimbursed! We are paying 400 euros for hotel rooms that aren't even being used because of this delay."
Cons: "Tha total absence of hard alcoholic beverages, no moderate cocktails"
Pros: "On time, clean airplane, polite air crew and a sandwich and soft drink."
Cons: "Need to pay extra for everything...bags, seats.Very bad practice for entire industry. Should pay $50 extra per flight and mandate that all bags, except hand luggage be checked in."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Plane and comfort"
Cons: "Food and entertainment needs to be better. The transfer over to cologne from Portugal was a bit hectic due to customs and we just made it in time for our flight. Need a better system to verify the passports."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats and food"
Cons: "Their 11 hours flight converted to 2 days flight with long waiting time between the flights. They also lost my baggage and there was no organization process in the airport as well as they couldn't resolve any problems related to their flight."
Pros: "Hot food"
Cons: "TAP says they're partners with Jet Blue until something goes awry. didn't work as a team to troubleshoot on how to get me to Rome on time or even on the same day. missed a day of my trip. didn't compensate, didn't troubleshoot until too late. didn't work to make it right as a team. wouldn't recmmend"
Cons: "Need bigger pillows!"
Cons: "Limited leg room."
Cons: "childs crying, no sleep, but what can we do right?"
Pros: "I gave up fighting with you and TAP to recover this error that was made a moment after I booked thinking it was to Brussels. I will think twice before ever giving Kayak or tap my business and blog you both to Facebook."
Cons: "The fact that it is impossible to speak to a human to correct this mistake"
Pros: "Servis was perfect, food was even better than with British airlines. I very like that Portugal crew were much more nice and hospitable than English crew."
Cons: "any unlikes."
Pros: "Very convenient"
Cons: "There is no food"
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."
Cons: "NO Options for vegetarians. main curse and snacks were with meat."
Pros: "Efficient. On time."
Cons: "Water, courtesy of the airline. More space, of course."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were ok but crew was rude and lazy and we had multiple delays. I was told to get in line for boarding and then stood there another hour. It was very poorly disorganized and did not come into contact with one nice crew member"
Cons: "Make sure you have a ticket with a selected seat or else they will not let you board, they overbook flights very often!"
Cons: "they don't provide even water for the passengers"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, plane clean"
Cons: "Boarding process was very slow. Paid for a sea in advance. I was assigned a seat in row 7, put in group 3. No overhead space for my small carryon."
Cons: "We were standing in line to board gate 14 it read Barcelona and right as we went to start boarding it changed to a different flight. All of us were running from gate to gate and nobody would help us!!!!! That was TERRIBLE!!!!!!!! One person figured it no Help from your staff."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and polite. Seats were comfortable enough for economy."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take and incredibly long time."
Cons: "They insisted I check in my carry on because they had a full flight, only to charge me fifty Euros because my bag was a bit over weight."
Pros: "Flight was very easy, comfortable and quick."
Cons: "Boarding was quite confused due to delay but wasn’t too big an issue x"
Cons: "Ticketing should have been better. They didn't have my name and couldn't print my boarding pass. I almost missed my flight, eventhough I was 2 hours early at the airport."
Pros: "Amazing check in man and baggage check in woman. Great Customer Service."
Cons: "Airplane crew dry, dull and aloof."
Cons: "I was informed upon arriving that I was on "standby" for a flight I'd booked weeks in advance, and told the reason was I had not paid the surcharge to reserve a specific seat, and Vueling oversold the flight by 10%. Not cool, Vueling. Also the flight was almost an hour late taking off."
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No coment"
Cons: "There were no real vegetarian options from hot and cold food menu for both adults and children"
Pros: "Clean, refurbished aircraft."
Cons: "Ground crew opened my checked in bag and stole a $800.00 watch. As a seasoned traveler, I know you should never carry valuables in your checked in luggage. However, this was never the intention, I had planned to take my small bag with me but last minute Vueling offered to check it in for free, since the flight was full. I should have never agreed."
Pros: "They are always late not much room."
Cons: "There are no complimentary beverages, not even water, on the flight."

Cons: "Our flight was ridiculously delayed due to fog no fault of the airline but the communication was terrible"

Cons: "Missing suitcase and then nobody available at the missing luggage desk for some time. Had to hunt around for someone to help us. Eventually when found they were helpful and have a useful online system for getting updates. Case not found at time of writing review but sounds hopeful."

Cons: "Booked extra legroom didn't get it."
Pros: "I am still alive"
Cons: "They charged for coffee. My legs are too long to fit without my knees going into the isle. They didn't have room for my bag."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The ground crew was pleasant and helpful, especially in meeting the needs of handicapped passengers."
Cons: "You have to pay for anything you consume in the way of food and drink... even a glass of water to take a pill. My wife and I fly frequently and this will be our last time to fly Veuling. Other than the lack of any free beverages, the legroom is minimal, there is no TV and no electronic recharging at the seats."
Pros: "When check-in online I was given 1st row seats, as a result I was treated as an excellence customer. Great service."
Cons: "Delayed flight that was a connection and nearly missed my next flight"
Cons: "Thr flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "Flights notoriously late Staff useless Service inexistant No information provided Avoid Vueling"
Pros: "Our flight was slated for 3:35pm departure. But hours before the flight, the guessing game started as to how delayed and for what reason the flight was delayed. We ended up leaving 4 hours later and with one feeble apology from the captain..."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. A meager €8 voucher that didn't even cover a meal and a poorly informed gate agent that couldn't provide any information because the head office wouldn't provide any information. To top it all off, the lie as to why the flight was delayed was not maintained by either ground staff nor the crew. Unbelievable"
Cons: "Plane late Check in late What a joke first time flying with this joke company"
Pros: "This was a standard flight.... there was nothing special about it...."
Pros: "Safe flight, good leg room"

Cons: "Very little legroom"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Fly with vueling. The sits are extra small, les than normal."
Pros: "Difficult to say, probably just returning home"
Cons: "1. After 4 hours in line in front of the boarding desk (I was between the first 10 people in line) due to a flight delay, when they began boarding they decide to start from the 15-31 rows. As I was on the 6th row, for which I payed an overprice when buying tickets, I eventuallypassed frome the first 10 people to be boarded to the last one. 2. As a consequence of point 1. As I arrived in front of the airplane door, the crew said the remaining luggages couldn’t be boarded with us because there wasn’t anymore space in the lockers. 3. The crew was very unprofessional. So, in the end, after paying more for first rows tickets and after being one of the first people in line to be boarded, because of poor organizarion I ended as one of the last to be boarded and without the right to bring with me the personal luggage. A nightmare"

Pros: "My first time with Vueling and it was great."
Pros: "Crew and personnel were very friendly. On time and bags arrived as promised."
Cons: "Nothing is on the house - even coffee on the flight is 3 euros. Seats are very very close together - virtually no leg room"
Cons: "The crew were very rude, there was no more overheard space in the cabin so two people in our party had to check their luggage, the washrooms at the rear of the plane were out of order and the they were out of three quarters of the food on the menu - effectively nothing to order!"
Pros: "I never write negative reviews simply because I believe if you dont have anything good to say then say nothing. However the experience we had flying with Vueling had caused us so much unnecessary stress & made me (very patient by nature) so extremely nervous that I got a stomach pain & gastritis excaverbation. Thus out of curtesy for other future flyers I cannot be silent about this. I literally have nothing positive to say about my experience except that we did actually land safely."
Cons: "To be specific Vueling's check-in associate Lafth (he wouldn't provide his last name even when we requested it for the purposes of this review) was the most unhelpful, rude & unprofessional public service worker! He was doing his job with the attitude as if he was doing us a favor, meanwhile making unappropriate comments related to the country of our destination & the United States. He assigned a seat to my boyfriend and informed me that I wont have a seat due to overbooking. We explained to him that we absolutely mus be on the plane due to the importance of an evening we had ahead. He seemed to enjoy the difficulty of our situation & had zero compassion & showed no attempt to help or to see what he can possibly do. The grim on his face suggested "screw you, guys!" And sarcastically added "good luck to you"! Seriously!? I was furious & so upset & also nervous because not making it to the point of our destination would be extremely unfortunate. My boyfriend suggested to assign a seat to me & to check in two luggages under my name & he would figure out an alternative scenario for his way to get to our destination in case they wouldn't find a seat for him at the gate. At the gate we met with two other associates who seemed to have zero training in what their job is. They had no understanding, no outside of the box thinking, no creativity & no any hint of compassion! Striking! Only because a guy from Iberia airlines came to help these two incompetent associates we started to feel that someone with the brain & knowledge is finally involved. Finally, we were given a second seat "miracoulasly" somehow it was available.. hmmm... and guess what!? Not just one! As we got on a plane I saw at least 4 seats (in my vicinity) unoccupied! The bottom line Lafth (the check in guy) knew it! But his miserable attitude had caused us all unnecessary stress, my nerves & caused his company this review. My suggestion- choose other airline!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Need to pay all even for drink water"
Cons: "They cancelled our ticket and we had to buy another at three times the price!!!!!!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight from Rome to Munich at a good price. I loved that my checked bag was free. Very pleasant and helpful person at the check-in counter. I will use Vueling again when I'm in Europe."
