Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive."
Cons: "The flight was so hot. No personal air controls. Economy was horribly small."
Pros: "Great organization, very efficient"
Cons: "Bag fees were not made clear on Kayak or Swiss website, seats on Edelweiss A320 we’re spaced too close together for my legs, though was not a problem on the 777."
Pros: "The expedited transfer from late flight out of Rome was an amazingly efficint process, much appreciated. Was very stressed when I thought I could not make the transfer, but Swissair really had it covered. My compliments"
Cons: "This flight was poorly advertised as Economy Light. I had to pay $500 in baggage fees to being one checked ski bag round trip - more than the cost of my entire fare!"
Cons: "Chose the option with Swiss because it showed that a checked bag was included. Got to the airport and was told to pay up for each checked bag. Great start to the trip."
Pros: "Nothing, flight was cancelled after I electronically checked in"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Same as above- wonderful crew, smooth take off and landing Very pleasant flight attendants the entire flight Service was great"
Cons: "Again / wish all airlines had more comfortable seating in economy clas"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The boarding process need improvement. The sits are very tight."
Pros: "On time, nice crew"
Cons: "plan was late for any reasons...."
Pros: "I loved the upgrade to business class. It was private, spacious, and very hospitable."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The plane wasn't totally booked and very clean"
Pros: "Class staff"
Cons: "Bit of a delay"
Pros: "Unlike some airlines the cabin crew is professional in appearance and behavior- courteous and pleasant. My husband and I enjoy the fact that ski equipment is taken without additional charge. The direct flight to Zurich is very convenient."
Cons: "Having to pay for seat selection"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi."
Pros: "Arrived safe"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines on an overnight flight. Awful food. Cheap fair seemed like a bargain until you find out that you have to pay an extra charge for the dubious privilege of reserving a seat way back in the 34th row."
Cons: "Boarding chaotic- no clear lines people pushing ahead which I am not used to- my handluggage was ok’ed at origin in US- was pulled aside in Zurich based on my “ ticket”- it was perfectly well suited and not oversized. In plane half of overhead compartments were filled with coats when told that these should go under seats. No consistency between announcements and behavior of crew."
Pros: "There was water to drink"
Cons: "Plane felt like a 1990 air France flight. Cabin dated. The least amount of room I can remember on a plane. When sitting upright and the person in front reclined, i looked at their head and if I crossed my arms, it would touch the seat in front. Could not pick up pillow that dropped on the floor, could not bend around the seat in front. Very hard to get out to use the toilet. Felt very claustrophobic."
Pros: "Food is excellent... nice variety plus dessert. Everything was hot & delicious & used metal utensils which was much nicer than plastic."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "I loved Swiss flights.. its staff and in flight expereince"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good legroom in economy, excellent meals."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Not very much space for such a long flight."
Pros: "The chocolate was good. The flight was fine no issues. The flight staff was very good."
Cons: "Had to pay $100 for my second bag. I did not pay for the extra bag on my way out. As a star alliance member and a united chase explorer card user I don’t think I should be paying for the extra bag. I booked the flight through United for the expressed reason that I have privileges when on united and feel if I book united these privileges should transfer. If not what’s the point of being a loyal customet"
Cons: "I did not like they were so strict with the carry on luggage and stopped us at the TSA"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Nice plane, organized food and boarding."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Engine shut down juast as the safety briefing started but all was good when it started again. A light meal would have been better than yoghurt & biscuits. Staff were very helpful."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The service on board was excellent, I would use this airlines in the future..."
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "No outlet for charging electronics. No free checked luggage. My carry on (of usual size) was deemed a bit too big so I was forced to check it in."
Pros: "Painless flight"
Cons: "No bottles of water for economy flyers"
Pros: "Attention to details from flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was not to my liking except for the crackers, ice cream and water!!"
Pros: "The crew on board was kind and polite when they had to deliver bad news"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a morning delay at Barcelona, although that seemed odd. The delay was known early that morning. Flight from Barcelona to Zurich doesn't take long. Seems they could have rerouted, or at least sent an email or some notification. Also, the boarding staff at Zurich is rude and random about whom they let onboard with larger luggage or not. They held some people but not others. Middle seats have metal polls, making legroom awkward."
Pros: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Cons: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Pros: "Liked the crew, seats, snack. Definitely a pleasant experience."
Cons: "Food: not so good! Entertainment: in the section of the new releases movies was old not new:) And my bag didn't come on the and :("
Pros: "The food,crew and flight were flawless. Our flight scheduling had us connecting within a thirty minute period in zurich and we had to run to catch the flight. Probably would have missed the connection if our 26 year old son didn't run ahead. Too much drama and no one from swiss air to help. Suggest more time for transfer in the future or someone to guide passengers. We were nit the only ones. However, we did make it as did the others ( luggage too!)so kudos to swiss for waiting"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "The crew at the check-in was rude, confused, and ignorant, and flight attendants were forgetful and ignorant."
Pros: "The food and beverage offerings were very good. The service was excellent."
Cons: "I wish the dinner service flying from JFK to ZH could be made sooner in the trip to allow more lights out time to relax and try to sleep. I wish all the movies had subtitles so I could read rather than have to deal with the head phones and the bad quality sound they produce."
Pros: "Real silverware. Great crew presence. Ice Cream and chocolate."
Pros: "We liked that there was, by default, a vegetarian meal option. There were good entertainment options too."
Cons: "Once again, my flight was late. Four out of the last five trips to Barcelona Swiss had a significant delay (longer than the duration of the trip itself) on at least one of the segments. It's getting a bit hard to believe actually."
Pros: "Too short to rate but good overall"
Cons: "Nothing"

Flight info on time

even with delay upon departure, the crew managed to get us on time to Lux, nice relaxing and generous service.. Classic good quality products. The opening time for the drop off was a bit late.. long queue of passengers waiting already before desk opened.

Everything was very good. Thank you Luxair, you are The Best.

Cons: "bigger seat"
Cons: "The crew. Half of them didn't seem to care about the passengers requests. I asked for a glass of water and didn't get it. After 5 minutes I had to ask again to another crew member. I noticed that it happen to other passengers as well."
Pros: "Every think"
Cons: "My friends"
Pros: "the chairs were comfortable and there was enough space for legs."
Cons: "have vegan options"
Pros: "One customer services agent in London was at least sympathetic- she tried, but Reservations wasn’t having it!"
Cons: "Airport staff are, thanks to a policy change, unable to change passengers to other flights, even if there are open seats. The bureaucrats in Reservations have to approve, which they are disinclined to do. I wanted an earlier flight which had space and was told if would be £400 (for a one-way, one hour flight to Luxembourg from London. And that was only IF the almighty Reservations people decided to do it. LuxAir has completely disempowered it’s staff in the airports (the ones who have ALL of the customer contact). I’m going to fly BA from now on."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "The comfort. Once the plane was here everything went smooth"
Cons: "The plane was one hour late"
Pros: "Exceptionally incompetent customer service!!!"
Pros: "/"
Cons: "Drinks: more choices"
Pros: "/"
Cons: "The flight (propeller) was very noisy."
Cons: "Staff that speak English well"
Cons: "Delayed unloading upon arrival."
Pros: "Left on time, clean aircraft"
Cons: "6pm flight but no food service; longish wait for hold luggage to be retrieved before any passengers (luggage or not) could deplane; Luxair has no gates in Luxembourg so every trip involves a bus ride to/from the aircraft."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpfull. The food and the drinks were excellent and the pilots did a great job as well. :)"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Prop plane too slow. Jet should take no more than 2 hours. This flight is 3 hrs.."
Cons: "Delayed and further delayed . Both outbound and inbound!"
Pros: "Crew pleasant"
Cons: "Flight left 15 minutes late; return journey cost over €600 euros, later (more convenient) flights were even more costly, so I went hours earlier than I needed to; breakfast was a cold, waxy chocolate croissant; on return journey I had choice of 17.50 or 21.30 - nothing in between. Given that they are charging SOOO much for so little, I am going to try Ryanair. I detest their “charge for everything” approach, but tickets can be 90% cheaper (less than £60 return), and I’m going to be making this trip weekly."
Cons: "When a one hour flight is 2 hour’s late, management know there’s going to be a delay. The Luxair app was useless; no staff around; info boards showed a 20-minute delay"
Pros: "Smooth trip. Good crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Breakfast roll was not fresh"
Pros: "London City Airport is super convenient to fly from. The flight was on time at both ends, and the plane very clean. The aircraft is small but perfectly formed."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The staff and crew were very nice. The food and drinks were also good."
Pros: "The flight left on time, to the minute. The crew quickly delivered snacks and water to the passengers, which is impressive for 30 minutes in the air. They were welcoming and efficient, and seemed glad to both see us arrive and happy to with us a safe departure. Luggage arrived at the same time we entered the baggage claim area, probably because of the passenger delay on board the flight for hand baggage to be offloaded."
Cons: "Boarding took a LONG time, relative to other airlines. The gate agent had to enter each seat assignment into the computer as he checked our boarding passes -- he had no way to scan and automatically record each passenger's arrival. First class passengers universally arrived later than the rest of us -- with one gate agent, economy class passengers frequently stopped and waited until the agent verified the first-class passengers' phone-based boarding passes against their passports and entered their seats into the computer. The flight was rough. We spent 5-8 minutes taxiing from our tarmac "gate" to the air strip -- and it was a very rough, bumpy, uncomfortable ride. The landing was atrocious. The weather was apparently calm, and there were no apparent crosswinds; we landed hard, and both bounced and shook. The aircraft (Bombadier Q400), a turbo-prop, was roomy enough for us -- we're average-height people who aren't very big -- I saw taller people scraping the overhead (ceiling) when they stood in the passageway/aisle. I've ridden in much smoother turbo-props in the past. We had to wait an extra 5 minutes on the ground so that hand-carried luggage could be off-loaded before passengers. We had no "checked" hand-luggage, so it felt like a nonessential delay for us. We aren't terribly upset with Luxair, as this was a "local" commuter flight -- we won't be traveling on this aircraft again if we can help it."
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew, great service. Very easy to use app for check-in, boarding pass display, seat selection including changing seats. Also worth downloading so you can use the luggage drop-off desk and avoid potential long check-in lines."
Cons: "Leg-room marginal for taller people although not much different from other airlines. If you are 1m85/6'1" or above just hope the passenger in front of you doesn't want to recline their seat."
Pros: "cancelled"
Cons: "cancelled"
Cons: "They were very professional and friendly! Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Slightly delayed. Food and entertainment are N/A. Overall, the flight was OK."
Cons: "As I was sleeping, food and entertainment is N/A. But flight was ok overall. Thanks."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Ease of check in and friendliness of staff and security. Clean and comfortable gate area. Appreciated the sandwich and beverage service."
Cons: "Seats a little crowded and plane shakes quite bit as we taxi."
Pros: "Direct flight and convenient"
Cons: "Above"
Pros: "Very professional. Have flown this airline several times and never any problems."
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "Just everything. The warm crew, the croissant+drinks, the timing. Looking forward to our next flight. Thanks, Luxair."
Cons: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
Pros: "Will fly alain n'est month on the some flight."
Cons: "I fly Luxair a lot. They pretty much do what it says on the tin: fly you from A to B, on time, almost always with your luggage. But there's no pleasure in it. Boarding is by bus, onto small noisy airplanes. Surly ground staff take away bags at the aircraft steps unless they're very small hand bags. The crew are usually pretty nice, and they do serve drinks and a sandwich"
Cons: "Ayant fait le check in online pour un vol GVA-LUX la veille, l'ordinateur m'avait attribué la place 4A. À lembarquement on mappelle pour me dire quon mavait attribué une autre place, la 18C. Je voyage toujours côté hublot, jamais couloir. lorsque je demandai pourquoi on m'avait changé de place la préposée me dit, sèchement , que l'avion devait être équilibré car tout me monde "était assis à l'avant. Insatisfaite de sa réponse, je lui dit que le systeme m'avait attribué cette place et que je ne voulais pas être à l'arrière de l'appareil . Peut lui importait puisque de toute façon elle me remit mon billet avec le 4A biffé et remplacé par 18C au stylo, en me disant que je pourrais changer de place apres le décollage. Or il sest trouve que ma place initiale, 4A avait simplement ete réatribuée a une autre passager! J'étais furieuse de m'être fait mentir de façon aussi effrontée, car de toute évidence la préposée à l'embarquement savait très bien la vraie raison de cette réaffectation a un nouveau siege. J'organise des concerts et jai souvent à acheter des billets pour des musiciens qui viennent au Luxembourg. Je n'ai franchement plus l'envie , après m'être fait prendre pour une idiote, de les faire voler sur luxair."
Pros: "Sandwich and drinks on board; nice flight attendants; quick boarding; smooth flight."

I was not able to take the return trip back to Boston as scheduled. The first part was the flight from Warsaw to Munich with the departure time 1:15 pm on July 24. When I arrived at Chopin airport in Warsaw I learned that the departure time was changed to 9:15 am. I have not received any notification about the change of the departure time. I had to change my travel plans which could have been easily avoided if I were informed about the change. I used to have respect for the excellent service Lufthansa was providing. Lufthansa proved not to be the same reliable air line anymore. Lufthansa also managed to lose my suitcase. Very disappointed with the level of Lufthansa service.

No delays Better food Nicer staff

Food can be better!the connection flight time was horrible, we had 1 hour to catch the next flight and the gates are so far from each other. We probably tour the whole Frankfurt airport! Thanks

This flight was nearly empty so there was plenty of room and no problems. Everything on time or early.

Pros: "The crew was friendly and willing to serve."
Cons: "Seat could have been more comfortable (it is thin) and more space/pitch between the rows of seats."
Cons: "Mejorar las oferta de películas abordo"
Pros: "Got to ride on a Boeing 747 Intercontinental!"
Cons: "It’s hard to give a good review when the first of three flights is an hour late. Made me and my wife run through Frankfurt airport to make my connection. Only made it by 2 minutes. Frankfurt security was super slow and no one cares."
Pros: "It was really nice having the bassinet for our little one."
Cons: "My wife encountered a rude attendant after simply getting up and asking for water."
Cons: "Poor customer support and no response on phone calls when u tried to cancel my return ticket."
Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were so attentive in Premium Economy. Entertainment choices were excellent. There was a USB charging port on the back of the seat. All good!"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Italy and I was worried I would miss the connecting flights to the US. But not to worry Lufthansa waited for our flight and got our luggage on board as well. The food was outstanding."
Cons: "That we could not by-pass the German passport check and go right to the next flight and check out passports only ones."
Cons: "It was Air Canada. Terrible service. Staff needs education on where to take travelers thru the immigration locations. Wasted time going to different locations and time is an essentence! Too many changes of staff from one location to another when it came with wheelchair assistance. One staff was on her personal phone!!! Had 3 different changes of hands then still did not get us to the right terminal, had to run to make the flight! Is that how you treat a 86 years old traveler?"
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"
Pros: "Great quality and delicious even for economy. Excellent service and personable attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process is poorly controlled and kind of unpleasant"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Priority boarding for parents with children was a huge help. Provided extra blankets and most of the crew's friendliness was very appreciated."
Cons: "Provided bassinet is much too small for even a 17 months old. Also very hard bedding made it impossible for the kid to sleep. We observed same with the other parents. Alone with that, the height of the bassinet makes it easy for the kid to get distracted. WORSE PART: Our daughter couldn't get comfortable to sleep and got fussy, so I took her for a walk which didn't help much. Since it was bedtime 11pm with 0 to little traffic, and to avoid her crying from disturbing everyone I resorted to one of the bathrooms with her. She did fall asleep for about 1 hour until one the FA came literally BANGING on the door. Very rude even after I calmly explained the situation. So sorry for such people with no compassion nor understanding in their hearts."
Cons: "Flight late"
Cons: "You are asking me about a flight that we did not take. We called to cancel it."
Pros: "Timely, friendly, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was bland!!!"
Cons: "Rating and bad customer experience shared on web...."
Cons: "Disappointed that the only snack was Pretzels. First meal was pretty good, but out of options for second meal when attendant reached me - no one wanted a curry hot dog six hours into eight hour flight."
Pros: "food was great. Flight staff was attentive, Flight was on time, and plane was clean. Awesome experience."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Checking in on-line was not very "user friendly". Our aircraft had to be replaced causing a 2 hour delay, part of which was an ATC sequencing delay. The 50 minute ATC delay couldn't be controlled by LH, but the original equipment replacement was at the bottom of the overall delay. My "A" window seat in economy had significantly reduce foot space due to a metal box installed in the space. The seat was not particularly well designed, but it's economy so you get what you get. The food was average at best."
Cons: "While missing a connection happens sometimes, Lufthansa was particularly dreadful in handling the situation. Hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of travelers were not informed about what was happening with their connections, or given any guidance. This all arose from around an inch of snow in Frankfurt. It caused bedlam at the Frankfurt airport, which the Lufthansa staff appeared utterly unprepared to deal with. This is our second very bad experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Cabin crew hospitality and service were amazing"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Pros: "Beautiful clean aircraft . Superb crew."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Sitting in the exit row meant that we could not rest bags under our seat but no overhead was left for a single backpack between my partner and I (our only luggage for the flight). Additionally other passengers were rude regarding overhead and the crew was not communicative on who should put what sort of baggage in the overhead."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "very professional cabin crew"
Cons: "The overhead bins are way too small, and they ran out of the vegetarian dinner option. There are no longer air controls for each seat, and the plane was quite cold."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was great, the food wasn't bad and the seat was comfortable and I am very tall"
Pros: "Announcements made about delay"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The sandwich and wine were nice...and prompt, too"
Cons: "Was told to check in at wrong desk by databoard. This caused delay..."
Pros: "The snacks were nice."
Cons: "We were delayed over 30 minutes and we did not get an update until like 20 minutes of sitting in the gate, which made me almost miss my connecting flight to New York. I also think that in the Barcelona airport there should be just a line to drop off the luggage since there is a self check out machine. It doesn't make sense to do the self check out and still get on the regular check out line to drop off the luggage."
Pros: "Getting off! Ok, i have to use 50 characters... i also liked the check-in counter staff in Orlando."
Cons: "I have flown on many budget airlines that were more comfortable than this flight. Hard uncomfortable chairs with a lack of leg space (and I'm only 1.70m). The food was poor and the service was worse- i pressed my call button for a drink mid-flight and it kept getting cancelled without a steward coming. Finally, after pressing the call button about 10 times a steward came and begrudgingly brought me a drink. Choice of movies was poor."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "TV didn't work"
Pros: "Decent flight. Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "We booked these flights expecting Lufthansa. Little disappointed to learn they were Brussels airlines. Inflight entertainment options and meal options don't seem to be as good. Flight crew was pleasant and fine. After learning it was Brussels airlines I went through their check-in process for families and requested kid-friendly meals, but nothing came of it. Slightly disappointed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and the flight was pleasant.The schedule was very convenient"
Pros: "Operated by Lufthansa. Attentive flight attendant. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "It was perfect"
Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."
Pros: "Restrooms on lower level a first for us. No waiting or lines In aisles . Entertainment selection decent."
Cons: "Reclining in seats not adequate for sleeping; very difficult to be comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding in Frankfurt was just short of a free for all."
Pros: "Clean modern aircraft. Attentive and friendly service. Decent food and drink. I had plenty of space in my row."
Cons: "The things I didn't like are part of a 7 hour flight in coach class, and that's beyond the control of any airline."
Pros: "It was all together a pleasant trip."
Pros: "The crew was friendlier. the plane was way cleaner than the previous one. The food was more decent."
Cons: "The crew wasn't too willing to help with the carry-on baggage, for example - I kept looking for a while for an available spot to deposit mine."
Pros: "Crew took care of business. Kept all the passengers in good comfort."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay. Never seen flight left this delay. But they make up the delay."
Cons: "I did nt like the food offered."

Nothing

The jet2 check in at Faro was so well done compared with other airlines. They stagger all the package holiday buses so it’s not overwhelmed. Well done Jet2

Boarding lanes should have been better organised..as it always becomes a free for all..

Flight was first class Experience at Edinburgh Airport was appalling

great airline - puts others to shame

Smooth process, great in flight crew you wouldn’t want to travel more than 3.5 hrs with them as the seats are slightly hard

Pros: "Crew was attentive"
Cons: "The seats are awfully tight and no padding The plane was delayed for almost 3 hours while we were on it because of some air conditioning issue"
Pros: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Not much. Outside influences not under their control"
Pros: "Crew were good, no issues. Flight was prompt and easy."
Cons: "A few too many announcements and promotions for buying stuff on board."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alanya airport puts you through security 3 times. If they want to do this at the gate including hand searching they need to employ more staff to speed up the process. Food and drink at the airport is expensive"
Cons: "Food options are very bad & there are no TVs on the plane but otherwise this was an excellent flight & a seamless holiday transfer from the moment that we arrived."
Pros: "Regular updates during flight. Food!"
Pros: "Nice plane and well trained crew, will fly them again, without any doubt"
Pros: "Boarding well organised, cfrew friendly."
Cons: "Announcements too frequent and very loud."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant and know how to smile"
Cons: "Air con started out super hot then went rather chilly!?"
Pros: "Great boarding decent legroom"
Cons: "Good all round - no entertainment but it’s short haul so expected"
Pros: "Comfortable, quick flight to prague, even landed early! The cabin crew were efficent and the cabin was kept clean and tidy. Legroom is always better on Jet2"
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Jet2 have good planes, excellent legroom and great staff."
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly service on the plane."
Cons: "Connection issues from previous flight. Connecting ground staff didn't seem to have their game together. In all fairness, it was after midnight and I don't think it was connected to the Aegean airline. More like airport security."
Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "Late at the airport but they managed to get us all through and boarded on time"
Cons: "Too many steps especially at Birmingham"
Pros: "Crew was good, boarding was good. On time."
Cons: "All food/drinks are chargeable, but they will not accept credit cards without a raise number on the front so I couldn't use my travel credit card and then I couldn't use my debit card because they said "often the debit card will not run through while in the air"...fortunately I had some Euros."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to report. Very efficient"
Pros: "Good flight (when we eventually got airborne. Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Last minute gate changes at Heraklion meant lots of confusion & frustration plus late departure. Edinburgh airport is a joke since its recent upgrades, plane sent to wrong bay caused delays getting off then baggage handlers are slow beyond useless, seem to think they are doing everyone a big favour & will do things when it suits them. No help or information from airport staff who promptly vanished at the 1st sign of trouble. Edinburgh airport really needs to have a long hard look at itself."
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Short flight good check in, comfortable seat. Nice staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Timing and space"
Pros: "Crew were polite, better than on the outward flight from Paris CDG to Leeds, but seemed more interested in chatting to each other than to reassure passengers about the long delays. Once underway, the flight progressed well."
Cons: "When a 30 minute delay was announced (13.45 instead of 13.15), I was fairly philosophical. However, we didn't board until 13.45. Once settled in our seats, another 25 minutes went by when the plane did not move. No information's given. I asked a member of the cabin crew what was going on who said she didn't know anything. I then heard her ask (presumably the captain) on the intercom if he could make an announcement as 'passengers were enquiring' We were then informed that we would have a further delay of up to an hour. We eventually took off at 16.00, over two hours after scheduled time. Thank goodness, I had left plenty of time for my connecting train. I was equally unimpressed for different reasons with Jet2.com on the outward flight on 12 July. I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "The convenience of the route"
Cons: "The thumping 'music' as we boarded, the over-jolly announcements which treated the passengers as if they were all mentally deficient or poorly educated. The information they conveyed was clear and comprehensive and obviously, safety instructions are crucial, but the format and tone of delivery were so patronising I thought they were a parody. They also assumed everybody was coming back to the UK after their holiday - the flight had a good proportion of French passengers and some of us don't live in the UK. Make the announcements more neutral. I fly with a lot of no-frills lines, especially Ryanair and EasyJet as well as the larger carriers such as Air France, BA, SAS and Air Canada, but I have never come across such grating and irritating announcements. I will think twice before booking another flight with them rather than endure this again."
Pros: "Last minute booking from Alicante, amazing seat allocation and the flight arrived 35 minutes early."
Cons: "Shame Leeds wasn’t ready for us, took far too long to access the terminal and queue at passport control was a joke. Landed feeling great, now I’m ticked off."
Pros: "Another excellent flight on Jet2 , 35 minute delay but handled with such relaxed professionalism by the crew. Highley recommend *****"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "excellent legroom"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Superb flight."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Charge to ensure you keep your free hand luggage in the cabin. Security delays at Belfast."
Pros: "First holiday with Jet2 and really impressed. My only tip would be to book a meal, as pre-booked meals are served first and the non-booked sandwiches ran out by our row. Will fly with them again."
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Having to turn off electronic equipment for take off and 30 mins before landing. Ridiculous as all other airlines now agree this is pointless."
Pros: "- Boarding was quick and effortless - Customer service was excellent from both ground staff and in flight team - No niggly baggage rules - Fair prices for in flight meals and snacks A huge thank you to Jet2 for providing an excellent service at fair prices"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Short check in, good leg room in seats"
Cons: "Overpriced food"
Pros: "Delayed boarding, taking off, landing, and then getting from plane to gate"
Pros: "What a breath of fresh air. Simple no frills service but very friendly attentive staff. Can't quite say why but 100 times more pleasant than a Ryanair flight!"
Pros: "Everything, staff the whole package faultless, well done !!!"
Pros: "First time iv used jet2 and I will again"
Pros: "Great flight, super low price. Overall great value. Also the cabin staff were great. The flight was quite empty so we had a bit of a blether"
Cons: "Nothing was wrong with the flight, aircraft or service. Only one star for food cos I didn't order, and for entertainment as there was none. Wasn't expecting for £80"
Cons: "temperature too cold on return flight from Faro, especially having been in hot weather for 16 days"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly"
Cons: "The constant talking on the overhead trying to sell something (food, donations, duty free) and then the stewardess didn't make it to the back to hand over landing cards."
Pros: "- Flight was on time, yet they pad the timetable to make it difficult to be late. - Aircraft was relatively clean considering this was its 4th flight of the day, and the fact it's 29 years old. - More laid back then EZY and FR as they allow a reasonable turnaround time."
Cons: "- Seat assignments don't always make sense, we were split up even though there was an empty row behind us. - Shortly after takeoff passengers moved into the extra legroom seats without paying. - Constant attempt to sell things to you, scratch cards, overpriced drinks etc."
Pros: "On one of the busiest weekends for flying it was perfect..... the plane the staff and the flight"
Cons: "The food was expensive and not great"
Pros: "Great service and food and smooth all the wsy"
Cons: "BiokAggrevation beforehand trying to book guaranteed cabin baggage"
Pros: "Convenient flights. Friendly staff. Excellent price."
Cons: "Older aircraft means electronic devices can only be used while cruising. Long queue for bag drop due to many flights leaving at once."
Pros: "Staff and process"
Cons: "No entertainment, pre booking hot food"
Cons: "This is a buckle and fine airline. I went to check in online the day before my flight and added a checked bag for each passenger. The website did not work well and it ended up booking 2 bags each and charging me for two each. When I arrived at the airport they said I had not checked on online and had to pay extra for checking in at the airport. I asked for a manager who said there was no record of me going online. That was odd because I booked and paid for my bags online the previous day while I was checking in.they said I had to write a letter to get back my extra baggage fees I was charged in error. I doubt I will ever see that money again."

Better communication from airline regarding delay(s) or updates on how to get further information.

The experience at the airport was traumatic to say the least, the flight was extremely delayed as a result

Flight was canceled and nobody notified us (business class) until we arrived at the airport. Tap tried to rebook us into economy for next flight but we would have missed out connection anyway. Had to pitch a fit to be rebooked on a different airline in business. Ended up in JFK instead of Newark but at least got home.

Check in was a disaster. The testing rules are ridiculous. They made me wait so long to tell me to get another test that I missed the flight, then they charged me a fee. The staff was rude and uninformed. I will never fly this airline again and will advise others to avoid.

DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE! I wish I would have taken the negative reviews I had read to heart before I had to discover it for myself. To start with, we were charged an extra $100 for our carry-on baggage apparently being overweight. This was not something we were told about prior to flying or we would have packed differently. During our layover in Portugal, we were delayed. Once they started to board, we got on the bus and drove out to the plane. Upon arriving at the plane, there were already two other busses there that had not even offloaded yet since they were apparently still servicing the plane. We had to stand in a crowded bus for about 45 minutes packed in like sardines. So much for social distancing and covid concerns! The plane itself was uncomfortable and the service terrible. I have flown across the Atlantic many many times on other airlines and have always received amazing service. This was not the case with TAP. Other than a small glass of water, we were only served drinks one time. There were no refills or additional service, which for a 9-hour flight is unheard of. I hated every minute of my time with TAP and will never fly with them again even if someone offered me a free ticket.

Pros: "Seats are way more comfortable than other flight companies"
Cons: "Crew could have been more patient"
Pros: "The entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Everything else was terrible. From check-in to boarding to flight."
Cons: "Late as always"
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness of flight."
Cons: "Both flights did not have any general vegetarian options in snack or main courses. There was no option online to submit a meal request and as booking last minute travel and in a foreign country, it was not possible to contact Air Portugal via phone. If the flight offers snack and two meal options, at least one should be vegetarian to accommodate this common population of passengers."
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: "Fairly new plane with clean/comfortable seats"
Cons: "Bus transportation to the plane was delayed. People were uncomfortable having to stand in the bus for so long. Then the flight was delayed for 15 minutes due to airport traffic. As the only business class passenger i would have expected to be offered a drink then or even a bottle of water at my seat"
Pros: "Boarding efficiency although the ... see below. Loved the salmon wrap and cheese 'n' biscuits"
Cons: "flight was delayed at check in and on the tarmac - 40 minutes. No explanation for this"
Cons: "Real time information about departure and gate info for delayed flight would have been helpful"
Pros: "The food and crew"
Pros: "Great crew and good seat with enough space."
Cons: "Overall is fine !!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "My eyes were closed and the crew passed by while serving food but did not wake me up. As a traveller I been woken up while food was served or food was kept on the seat tray."
Cons: "Overall the flight was good but I dont know why the crew was like that, and the flight seats ain't comfortable and were to close to each other. I legs wasnt comfortable"
Pros: "We really enjoyed TAP Air Portugal and expect to fly with them again. Comfortable seats, pillow, blanket, and MEALS! Good ones with actual silver! USB charging port at every seat, with a good selection of movies. Great airline for a great price!"
Pros: "Mechanical delays leaving London, missed flight connection to New York, now TAP wants to charge me for rescheduling!"
Pros: "The crew were excellent during the flight."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight because our first flight was delayed. Despite getting to the desk when there were still people queuing he refused to let us board. We are now delayed for 30 hours with no money or clothes. TAP staff were horrible- no sympathy or even an apology. Just awful."
Pros: "In time. Plane half full. Perfect."
Pros: "Nothing to like. Rude staff."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was 1hr late. The airlines is not very good at updating the time the flight will leave."
Cons: "It was nice to get a snack but the quality was mediocre."
Pros: "The drinks were available."
Cons: "The drinks were expensive."
Pros: "Clean, modern plane - tightly-packed but comfortable seats. Note: if you travel with a bag with wheels it will be weighed at the gate and those over 8kg will be checked. If you have a heavy bag without wheels, it gets no scrutiny."
Cons: "Odd they didn’t have a terminal gate on their home airport - we were bused from a distant spot on the tarmac to the terminal."
Pros: "Smooth flight Crew extremely nice and helpful Good snack served (not the usual junk food some airlines give and charge for ) punctual"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Flight was late which seems to be a standard with TAP."
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Cons: "I was not informed my flight was cancelled until the day of the flight. I was able to get in touch with someone to pay for another flight but the communication was lacking."
Pros: "Space was actually good."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. We had a little child, but no priority for families with children. Flight was delayed over two hours, no explanation, no apologies. Boarding crew was impolite and unhelpful. Then they had to weight all carry-ons! Crazy."
Cons: "Slow delivery of bags in Lisbon"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "No issues or service challenges I could think of. Friendly. Helpful."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard and not a lot of legroom. But. Not unexpected for the section/price. Shorter flight made this bearable. Interior looked dated. Though, it is an A319."
Pros: "Modern appointed plane with places for technology and charging points"
Cons: "Ground staff insisted carry on bags were checked in and implied this was mandatory and I complied only to discover later that majority were allowed to ignore this. Also plane was late"
Pros: "The Magnum ice cream was a great touch."
Cons: "We thought that $35 per bag is a bit too much when other airlines are $25."
Cons: "My flight to Miami was delayed due to weather. I missed my connection to LHR, therefore missed my TAP flight to Portugal. I called TAP (before the flight) and they would not change the flight because I went through a travel site. My $240 ticket was lost, and I had to pay over $900 for a new one. I doubt I will use an internet site again because I will unlikely get a refund and it was impossible to change the ticket. Feel awful!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, fast and efficient. Crew were friendly and welcoming. Complimentary snacks were welcome and nice."
Pros: "Easy trip from London"
Cons: "Not sure what was in the sandwich."
Pros: "The flight was quick, boarding was easy and efficient."
Cons: "Flight attendants can be a bit nicer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They damaged one of my bags and lost the other one. Bad service, really old planes and seats were to small; mind you I was traveling in business class. Over all a horrible airline"
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "The food was light and good."
Cons: "Not using the tube when deplaining. Summer in Lisbon is very hot ."
Pros: "The checkin staff at LHR were really good and helped me with my visa application. They helped me to not miss my flight. Ten out of ten for them."
Cons: "In flight food was very poor"
Pros: "Staff couldn't have been more courteous."
Cons: "Little confusing at the gate but mainly due to poor PA system not the staff. Happens a lot at airports in my experience"
Pros: "solid flight, efficient"
Cons: "staff kind of moody, not really smiley"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "My special meal request was not provided despite having email confirmation before boarding the flight. Also, my luggage was lost at the transfer of my journey"
Pros: "It was s a good value especially as a Star Alliance Gold flyer."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for sandwich snack."
