The Azul company is good. However, the Kayak service and assistance are terrible. Two flights without ticket information, delay and a mess.
The trip was ok even though extremely expensive. Azul markets its free wifi during the trip however it was not working. Everything elso ok.
I really like this airline I just wish that they would make arrangements with connecting flights when one is a few minutes late it’s ridiculous hold up your travel for what would’ve been about five minutes
Good have been much better being informed of the delayed.
Pros: "Crew was fine. Seat average."
Cons: "At meal time 200 people take their masks off to eat. And that’s acceptable. But in the middle of the night you wake people up because their masks slipped down off their noses! Ridiculous."
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat not super comfortable but average."
Cons: "Short flight, all was good."
Pros: "The food served was really good."
Pros: "I loved that even during a pandemic, alcohol in glassware and full meals were served in business class (unlike other airlines, so I avoided them). The lighting looked nice, the crew was professional and attentive, and the bathroom was well maintained. The blanket and pillow were comfy as well. I like the 1-2-1 layout in business class, which leaves window seats with a lot of windows and privacy."
Cons: "The headphones were not the most comfortable, sometimes the passenger moving around behind you will shake your seat too, and before take-off the plane was quite hot. Also a lot of the food choices I wanted were gone already but not a big deal as there were many choices."
Cons: "Two hours stuck at gate with no information. Info on site and at airport on baggage costs different. Left bag behind to fit more cargo. Two days and haven’t delivered bag."
Cons: "I couldn't take the flight, because of the sanitary situation, and couldn't get my refund yet"
Pros: "All flights take off on time and arrived on time."
Pros: "The airport is small and easy to get by. The crew was friendly, and I had four seats to myself! It was an excellent experience."
Cons: "Food was decent."
Pros: "For business class tickets this was the worst food and boarding I’ve experienced. United airlines are horrible."
Pros: "Same comments as before: comfortable airplane, good food and friendly crew."
Cons: "There was a long delay in the connection at Viracopos/Campinas: technical problem with the airplane. I arrived approximately 1 hour late in Curitiba (past midnight)."
Cons: "We landed and spend 45min instide the plan to be able to unboard"
Pros: "The crew as fine!"
Cons: "The gate at the airport changed"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, it took flight attendants 1.5 hour to start service after take-off."
Pros: "Amazing crew and overall experience"
Cons: "No complaints on this one"
Cons: "They cheat on us about the place of the seats. Saying was a good place but giving us the worse seats in the plane - just after bathroom where it doesn’t recline and impossible to sleep due traffic"
Pros: "We got all of our bags! No lines. Smooth sailing"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "Friendly crew, most spoke at least some English"
Cons: "Only food for purchase, would be nice to have second language option on some of the entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Spoke some English for the most part."
Cons: "Only food for purchase"
Pros: "Nothing was great nor poor."
Cons: "The flight attendants from Sao Paulo to Newark, didnt seem like they wanted to be working. They did their job but with no enthusiasm to be there"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive. Most of them spoke English and Spanish in addition to Portuguese."
Cons: "The snacks could have been healthier and the bathroom could have been cleaner."
Cons: "More recent movies on board"
Pros: "Yes. The food was good ( snacks) and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Priority checkin at Ezeiza airport."
Cons: "The A320 planes was too cramped and it's an older plane."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late, we were told we would leave just a half hour late then the time just passed without further announcements of delays. Cramped A320 aircraft. Just water and soft drinks for a 3.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Bus service from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 was clearly marked and frequent. The flight crew members were all helpful and friendly and I enjoyed the drink (especially suco de maracuja) and snack offerings. As I spoke only limited Portuguese, I greatly appreciated the attempts made by the ground staff and flight crew to communicate with me, both in English and via hand gestures. I am certain that no domestic airline would be so helpful to non-English speakers in the USA!"
Cons: "I realize Azul cannot help being stuck in Terminal 2, but it's not the most comfortable place to wait for a flight. Also, after I walked through the gate, several boarding flights merged confusingly in a single passageway with exits to multiple planes and many people got lost and ended up (temporarily!) on the wrong airplane, despite heroic attempts by the ground crew to direct passenger traffic. There must be a better method than having everyone follow colored lines to the planes - it wasn't working!"
Cons: "Very disappointed that there were only junk food options on the snacks served. Same goes for the drinks. And no option to buy anything healthy either. Arrived hungry at 1:20am!"
Pros: "The tickets were a good price, movie selection was excellent, and the staff was really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was terrible. I'm a tall American and I could barely fit in the seat, let alone fall asleep in a 9 hour hour flight. Also, there were no plugs that would work for an American outlet."
Pros: "There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again."
Cons: "T H E R E I S N O T H I N G I D I D N T L I K E B U T I H A V E T O P U T S O M E T H I N G H E R E"
Pros: "Dont know who or why. Plane out of Orlando mco delayed from 9:30-2:30 am. All food places closed 9or 10 pm"
Cons: "Delay, no place to eT"
Pros: "Kiwi never paid the airline and I had to buy another ticket and they never REFUND ME"
Cons: "I will never use this service again"
Pros: "The selection of tv shows (Game of Thrones)"
Cons: "Not much leg room (I’m six feet tall)"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The flight was canceled without inform. We had to take a 5:30 bis trip to Teresina in order to go to VCP and then to BSB. Bizarre.."
Pros: "screens didn't work on flight"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Organization for embarking was a little messy."
Pros: "Awesome customer service and flights were on time!"
Cons: "Nothing to critic."
Cons: "The arrogant employees at Gov. Valadares didnt tell me they were sending me to another airport making me miss my conection flight in the process. This information was disclosed only after I asked if the flight was on time because I had a international flight to catch at my final destination Sao Paulo - GRU. Instead of helping and apologizing for the hassle, the attendant said that I had to pay for my carry-on (that was 10kg) because I had another hand bag with my laptop in it. I said that I would not pay, and that Azul should return me money first for not delivering the service I purchase - which was the flight from Governador Valadares, MG to Sao Paulo, SP (with a quick stop in Belo Horizonte, MG). Instead they were making me miss my international flight, and besides not taking any responsibility for it, this woman is telling me that I had to pay for a carry on?!? I was mesmirized by the lack of sense of this flight attendant. After telling me that I was going to get in Sao Paulo at 9pm instead of 5pm, and that I would have to run to get a bus to another terminal and hopefully make it to my international flight that was at 10:20pm, she insisted I’d pay. I told her that if she could get me to my destination at 5pm maybe I wouldn’t mind paying, but since that wasn’t the case, and I’d have to run to try to catch another flight because of Azul Airlines, that she should really think about it and let it go, and let me go with my bag as a carry on. She gave me the ticket, and as I grabbed my bag and went towards the bus, she threatened me, saying that in Ipatinga and in Belo Horizonte (my first conection flight) they would not allow me on the plane with the carry on. Since the non-sense continued I just took her as a mentally disable person, and ignored her threat. A full bus and 2 vans headed to Ipatinga (100km away in a dangerous highway), packing the flight there, really making me think that this non-sense was just a way Azul Airlines figured out to save money in fuel. The flight was completely full, the AC not working properly, and with the heat and humidity people were smelly. It was absolutely awful. The flight attendants in Ipatinga (way nicer than the ones in Gov. Valadares), distributed water to the passengers that looked like they were about to faint, the ones sweating profusely, the elderly and the kids. By the way, the carry on bag was not an issue at the other airports. Once in Belo Horizonte I noticed that my original Azul flight from Belo Horizonte to Sao Paulo at 3:30pm as 1 hour and 15 minutes LATE. I run to the gate and explained what happened and after crying out loud was able to convince the Azul attendants to let me in on that flight so I wouldn’t miss my international flight. They made me wait until last minute but I cried: this is the flight I had a ticket for. It’s only fair you let me in! So they did. And I made my other flight. But not before I got upset, had a headache, stomach ache and felt demoralized by Azul staff."
Pros: "Everything was fine except the flight was delayed an hour. No biggie. My only question is that I had a trip that passed through Isa to 3rd country. At check in I was informed that bags would go all the way through without re-checking in. Turns out bags had to be re-checked in at first entry to usa. I wish the rules were consistent and that all personnel knew the rules. Also united baggage track app does not work."
Cons: "United baggage app does not work Personnel did not know baggage rules at Chck in."
Pros: "service is excellent"
Pros: "Allí right and on time"
Cons: "Allí good"
Pros: "Gate management, boarding, flight time and amenities were all superb. Their snacks really are as good as advertised."
When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"
Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"

Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."
Purchasing tickets through BudgetAir was underwhelming...
NO ONE AND NOTHING gave me a notification or anything that I couldn’t fly to peru if my passport was within 6 months of expiring so I couldn’t even go. It’s ridiculous and I don’t think airlines should be allowing purchasing without having some system to check your passport information.
The only thing need to be better is pick up the trash before the landing
It will be better if Latam will love to tell us when they made changes in my itenary. I feel that my itenary was change to however they like instead of how we arrange when I purchase my ticket. I have two elder people with me and i did not like that we have to split to be able to get home. The counter people does not know how fix situation and don't understand reasons.we wanted to board the plabe together as we purchase the ticket. i dont know why my ticket was the itenary the same as when we left to Peru. I feel that what I choose was not acceptable that.my itenary could be change to however Latam wants to do. That is very not nice and not restpetful to my wishes. Please call us for an apology and maybe a refund for all that we have to go to. My bag is also not get the destinatiin to Jfk.
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Pros: "The free middle seat because the flight was not full."
Cons: "Bigger glass for wine"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, and the food was the best I've had on a plane trip."
Cons: "They got our bag out of the plane and then lost it, had no earphones whatsoever."
Pros: "Neat, polite and orderly. Great food!"
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "THE WAY THE PLANE IS LOADED WITH SEATS IN BACK LOADED FIRST AND FRONT SEATS LOADED LAST SO DON'T HAVE TO FIGHT THROUGH ALL THE PASSENGERS BLOCKING FRONT AREA"
Cons: "FOOD IS MOST TASTELESS OF ANY AIRLINE FOOD WE'VE EVER HAD ON THE MANY AIRLINES WE'VE BEEN ON AROUND THE WORLD"
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Cons: "I got a middle seat. Any other seat would’ve been better."
Pros: "Confortable seats, flight on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant kept talking all night with two passengers. I could hear them even with ear plugs. When I finally was able to sleep, she didnt wake me up for breakfast even when I especifically asked to be awakened. And than replied that she wasnt able to wake me. Awful service for executive."
Pros: "Crew very nice chicks"
Cons: "Is like flying in the floor, very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The leg place and reclining chair"
Pros: "Wonderful people, great attitudes, and the experience I’ve come to expect."
Pros: "Leg room and seat spacing were great"
Cons: "Flight could’ve been on time and luggage delivered to passengers in a timely manner."
Pros: "Window seat & no one sat next to me"
Cons: "Customer service at baggage check in desk. Very very poor and slow"
Pros: "Nothing. Passenger name could not be changed due to a mistake by you and lastminuite.com so I lost the flight and was not refunded the full amount! Bad service."
Cons: "If the passenger name was changed as requested and I would not lose the money."
Cons: "I've flown a lot of different business class flights in my time and these are the narrowest I've ever seen. I am not overweight but I felt very restricted in these seats. Add to the narrow seats is the design of the seat and armrests themselves and you don't have much space at all. No way I was going to be able to work on my laptop in this LATAM business class seat."
Pros: "I had few questions about emigration in São Paulo and they helped, the food was good and all were very kind!"
Pros: "Great airline. New Boeing 787. Very courteous crew. Nice business cabin with reclining seats and seatback IFE. Light meal served with some very good Chilean wine. As they are part of One World I used the very spacious Iberia lounge which also made the whole trip extremely comfortable"
Cons: "No negatives"
Cons: "Apparently you need to be at the airport 2hrs before your flight leaves otherwise you cant print your ticket and have to wait in a 1-2hr line to have them tell you you have now missed your flight and charge you $30USD to change to another flight. When it only takes literally 3min to get through security and to the gates. not sure why they couldn't give us our tickets when we were then an hr early. Then they said we were at gate 5. We went and waited there. About 20min before departure we noticed the flight info had changed and wasnt ours. No announcement. Nothing. We had to run upstairs to our new gate and barely made that flight. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and lack of communication. Basically a company looking to get money wherever they can at the expense of foreign travelers."
Pros: "La tripulación muy atenta"
Cons: "La comida"
Cons: "El vuelo salió a tiempo y en los horarios exactos lo que. o me gusto que me dañaron un bolso y me lo hicieron huecos"
Pros: "more space in coach section, between seats"
Cons: "less space for legs in seats."
Pros: "My first flight on LATAM and very impressed. Fast boarding, lots of help for an English speaking passenger in Chile, newer plane, clean, and efficient flight attendants. I'll be back!"
Cons: "Never made flight because of Latham delays"
Pros: "There was nothing special"
Cons: "Staff attitude food"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "It was a little slow to get on and get off the airplane."
Pros: "The flight itself was great because there were personal TVs for everyone that had a wide selection of movies and games. It had more categories on it but little time to explore in the short plane ride after the movie from BWI to MIA. Great pilot, little motion sickness and great staff."
Cons: "I did not like how I came with my family and the clerks did not even try to seat us together, just gave us our tickets and sent us on our way, even after mentioning we had under age kids with us and a 2 year old who WILL CRY if not seated next to my other 2 family members."
Pros: "Flight on time, friendly staff, in flight entertainment, good food. Highly recommend this airline."
Cons: "No complaints everything was great."
Pros: "I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are."
Cons: "I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar."
Cons: "Delay, boarding through shutter, unsafe shutter parking,"
Pros: "Good wine. Check-in was fast and easy. Entertainment was great. The plane was brand new and very clean and the tinted windows were super cool."
Cons: "Sort of unorganized boarding. Needed to offer water more often for such a long flight."
Pros: "Not much since not only were we screened by the airport authorities but also by Latam. I purchased some water after security but had to leave it since they would not allow it on the plane. Had they let us know about this sooner I could have saved money."
Cons: "The Latam personnel who searched our bags prior to boarding put on gloves which I though was very good. The bad part was that I saw 2 members of the search party sneeze into the gloves and touch their noses without changing gloves. How disgusting!!! Never Latam again! I would rather pay a few dollars more and not put up with this health violation."
Pros: "Good service from the crew."
Cons: "I lost my luggage (bag). I had to wait about 1 hour. Airport staff advised me to go from gate 1 to gate 11 and back to gate 1. Then advised me to go to Latam counter where I lodged a claim."
Cons: "I have time toget the other flight but they already have every thing ready to let us in Sao Pablo, I have to stay 1 day. That was very bad."
Pros: "Got a snack box and some drinks which was good, smooth ride back- nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding took a minute to start, but it wasn't too bad"
Pros: "The crew on this particular flight was friendly and attentive. The food was very good."
Cons: "The plane was not clean at all. Mine and my friend's seatbelts both had chewed gum stuck on them which we had to cover with some plastic wrap to keep it from getting on our clothing. Our tray tables were disgusting. It looked like someone had spilled food all over them and no one ever cleaned it, so we had to clean the tables ourselves."
Pros: "The food and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were the smallest seats I've ever say in and I felt claustrophobic. Checking into this flight was a disaster and impossible. Tam would redirect me to Tam airlines and Lan would redirect me to Lan. The Lan customer service was unable to get into the Tam airlines flight so we emded up with the most awful chairs in the airline. I wish they would fix their website so checkin isn't as frustrating as it was for me. I understand the airlines merged but if each airline is unable to access eachothers flight then how exactly did you merge? ALSO when we got off the first flighy to connect in this one they gave us no explanation until 20min later to where we should commect to this flight. They MADE US WALK A 20min WALK TO ANOTHER TERMINAL WITH ALL OUR BAGS. It was awful. If your gonna need people to walk to another terminal the least you can do is supply a shuttle."
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "everything so much better than air colombia"
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, The crew is awesome!! I would continue flying any change that I get on LAN."
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."
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: "Only the on board crew lived up to Tap's normal standard"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic in Copenhagen. Food very poor this time"
Pros: "The in flight snack was surprisingly diverse and tasty."
Cons: "We had to take a bus from the gate to the plane, which is fine. But we stood on the bus at the gate for 10 minutes after it was completely full before it finally drove to the plane. Then when we were just outside the plane we had to wait again for several minutes before they would let us off."
Pros: "The food and crew"
Cons: "There was a group of Swiss passengers very noisy and crew did not asked them to behave."
Cons: "Gate location information delayed until last minute!"
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: "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: "Seats were Comfortable"
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"
Pros: "Luggage was delivered, although very slow to arrive at carrousel"
Cons: "Luggage fees were excessively higher. Paid €75 per checked in bag one way! This was because our tickets were “on sale” and didn’t include any checked in baggage."
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: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."
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"
Cons: "Baggage fees were unacceptable. All but one of my group of 12 had to pay and we were not told why. It was not clear that this should have been done via the website prior to the flight and why is it significantly cheaper online? Very disappointing."
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."
Cons: "Late 45 min only one attendan hence no services of any kind and no chance for real safety in case of emergency Same on TAP"
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: "Very quick and efficient"
Cons: "Carryin size is so small for the airline"
Pros: "solid flight, efficient"
Cons: "staff kind of moody, not really smiley"
