I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"

Cons: "12 of January, 2018 Dear Austrian Airlines authority, I address to your kind attention to asist me to get to me the hat qhich I lost on board of the flight 1576 when I arrived to Vienna airport on my way frpom JFK to Lwo. It happened because it was no room above my seat's bin and the steard helped me to get my heat in another bin. Unfortunately I forgot at the moment when I left the board of the plane, a minute later I reminded that I forgot my hat but I was not allowed to go back and get my hat. I tried to communicate with the Lot&Found office in Vienna airport as I had 2h40 minutes in connection time and it was enough time to get me back the hat, unfortunately nothing was really done from the airport staff to get me my hat and made to me possible continue traveling with my hat. I spoke to two managers, the name I could share with you if you need. The Found office registered my black hat and the plastic box under the number F2018/000682. In this situation I ask your offices to deliver my hat and the plastic box to Lviv airport as sson as possible as this is a special hat for my daily prayers. I wish you best and ask for your kind assistance to send the item as soon as possible with the nearest flight. Sincerely, Meylakh Sheykhet"
Pros: "On time and standard service."
Pros: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Cons: "Touch screens didn't work very well, poor entertainment selection compared to other airlines, poor sound quality"
Cons: "no light over my seat and I reported it before the plane took off. the plane was old, the entertainment system not as expected - really poor"
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Pros: "Flew Business class to Zurich. Great service, completely flat fold down seat so sleeping is EASY Great price."
Cons: "Transfer in Zurich airport security. We were transit but it diodn't matter because we took a 3 min train to another terminal and had to go through security again. No bank in Terminal B to change money ! In Switzerland !!!!!"
Pros: "Flight itself was good for a shorter international flight. Dim cabin lights for early morning, crew providing plenty of drinks and snacks."
Cons: "For international travel, I’m always told to get there 3 hours before. For this trip we checked in but didn’t have access to a printer so needed a boarding pass. We wanted to carry on luggage so just needed to print the pass. Swiss was the only airline that wasn’t available on the check-in kiosks. The front desk staff didn’t arrive until closer to 1.5 hours before check in so nearly theall passengers were in a huge line to get passes and check bags."
Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."
Pros: "Good food!"
Cons: "Because there was no way for us to check in early or online and they did not send us an email directing us to do so, they put us on standby even though the flights were paid for months before. We couldn't sit together--they wouldn't even try, they let the computer do it randomly as we boarded. They put my son through ridiculous strip search security measures, and when my passport fell into to the steel bullet of a garbage can, they didn't help and my son and I figure out how to go through it to get my passport. They could not have been more unhelpful. Plus the food was terrible, and delays both in taking off and getting to the gate. I will NEVER fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "Crew and people were fabulous!"
Cons: "LONG lines at check in. Almost missed flight even being there 90 mins early."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Three and a half hours delay due to technical difficulties. Food was only a small cheese sandwich and a bottle of water. Could have given us a little more food. Seat on flight did not recline. Extreme turbulence for half an hour, very scary, thought we would never make it! All in all, a bad experience."
Pros: "Food was great!! Flight was so much better than the United flight I took to get there. Plane was much more comfortable and cleaner."
Pros: "Very good service in business class"
Cons: "They lost our luggage and after filing claim we have not been notified for 16 hours"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "No space, bad video screens (especially important for a long flight with a 3 year old) with terrible image and sound quality, even with my good headphones."
Cons: "The guy in front of me at the flight from Zurich to Newark..."
Cons: "Could use some more seating space"
Pros: "Getting off the plane after 11 hours of turturous discomfort."
Cons: "I am not unusually large but it is clear that the seats on your planes are completely inadequate for anyone other than a child. There is no possible way for anyone who isn't seriously sedated to sleep or even sit for any extended period of time in what amount to slightly cushioned coffins. I literally spent an hour in the toilet trying to fall asleep because at least in there I had room to extend my legs. At least in there I could actually breathe (the ventilation system is totally inadequate for anyone sitting near the windows and results in horribly stuffy and uncomfortable air.)"
Pros: "I take the flight from ZRH to SFO several times a year. Typically on time, typically good service, food and drinks"
Cons: "The entertainment on the Airbus 340 is outdated and the screens are terrible but that is the only problem. ugh better with the new 777. Unfortunately not the case today"
Pros: "crew was friendly, little snack was delicious"
Cons: "Just before landing in Zurich the flight attendant started to announce the gates for flight connections. I was on tight schedule trying to make my connection to Amsterdam. He first started to give my gate number, but then said there won't be flight to Amsterdam until the next day. I was very worried. When landing it was very difficult to find anyone working for Swiss to assist me. Then someone told me that my flight would be leaving in 3 minutes. I asked to be rushed through line, but everyone said not too worry because plane would wait for me. When I arrived at gate there was no one there. Then it took quite a while to find another Swiss employee to help me. There seemed to be a lot of confusion."
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: "People who handle Swiss"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entirety of the flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."
Pros: "fast boarding, great crew."
Cons: "when is SWISS going to change serving something else rather than this chocolate bread during morning flights?"
Cons: "I was taken away from boarding for a random check that took a long time due to not enough staff Entertainment system was broken for about 50 people, even after a reset. Terrible for an overseas flight. Food was very poor, staff lied about resetting the entertainment system. The plane took off 1 hour late and was not allowed to taxi to taxi to the gate for 1 hour, making us extremely late."
Pros: "The food, the crew, and the smooth landing"
Cons: "The seats. Kind of uncomfortable"
Pros: "Service. The food was good. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "As a person of color I didn't feel that I received the same warm welcome from some of the attendants. For example the expression on their faces were blank when I said hello. I picked up my food tray and gave it to the attendants very politely. She just took it out of my hand. When the passenger next to me did the same she said thank you very politely. He was Caucasian. Some were very friendly and polite."
Pros: "Seat spacing better on the short flight than the long flight -- where is the Swiss logical thinking ---- apparently this is a myth"
Cons: "Swiss boarding is a Charlie Foxtrot"
Pros: "La mejor compañia con la que he efectuado este trayecto en económica! Muy recomendable."
Pros: "Ok food and ok entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was very hot and there were no air conditioner valves so we had to sit in a hot plane for thirty minutes. Seats didn't recline at all so sleep was out of the question. Just a very miserable flight overall."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"
Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"
Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
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."
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "No Crew."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, never went."
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: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Crew cordiality"
Cons: "Luggage....it is allowed to charge but they shouldn’t charge. During on boarding they communicate that because the cabin was full of hand luggage the rest of the passengers needed to dispatch their hand luggage for free. This occurs only because they charge to dispatch luggage when buying the tickets. So nobody dispatch luggage and those who dis became frustrated because they payed. This unfortunately occurs on all companies."
Pros: "Foot rest in coach"
Cons: "Airline reservation staff is rude. LATAM smart phone app not integrated with their systems properly"
Cons: "The flight was late"
Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Almost all planes have seats crammed too close together."
Cons: "More choices of TV shows to watch."
Pros: "Good seat. Nice aircraft Helpful check in."
Cons: "Don’t charge for seat selection. Every passenger deserves to choose their own comfort."
Pros: "The worst flight in my life"
Cons: "With the red eye flight, there were limited food options. Probably what happens normally, but it was a third leg of a journey for us an we were hungry!"
Cons: "Only one gate agent was boarding passengers, which made the boarding process very slow. I was assigned a seat on the aisle in front of the exit row. For a midnight flight, I was really bummed to find out that my seat would not recline! My leg room on the A321 was lacking in comparison with GOL."
Cons: "TV at each seat"
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Cons: "more seat space and padding, no charge for soft drinks"
Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "That it took me from A-B"
Cons: "My wife’s hand luggage was taken off her and put into the hold, against her wishes. When we arrived in São Paulo, the bag handle had been totally destroyed and the bag dented. During the flight we were only given water, the toilet had no paper or soap. Very poor"
Pros: "Boarding and Check in was really good"
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was too cold. A bit warmer would have been better."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Business class seats too narrow on 767. Needs upgrade"
Cons: "Old aircraft Business seat narrow"
Pros: "Window seat & no one sat next to me"
Cons: "Customer service at baggage check in desk. Very very poor and slow"
Cons: "Muito triste minha bagagem nao apareceu na hora do desembarque viajei na classe executiva essa e a ultima vez"
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."
Pros: "I missed my flight, latam's computer was down, I stayed at the airport for 16 hours with them telling me I can't refund, I can't reschedule, pretty much they took my money and left me stuck in Houston. I waited for this day for 6 months, I sold my car, just for this trip. never flying latam"
Cons: "customer service is the worst I've ever seen in my life.. worse then any other place I've gone, they will not even try to look into your situation, they took my boarding pass and left me stuck in Houston. $1,000 put into their pocket with no service rendered. I hate my life"
Pros: "easy enough..."
Pros: "On board entertainment"
Pros: "Premium Economy DIRTY , Aircraft was not cleaned even in Prem. Economy. Seat sold as Business Class on Kayak but actually exact same seat as economy in the back. Mean was disgusting Seat was dirty, Could not understand ANY of the announcements Will definately try a different carrier when available"
Pros: "Amazing service from every staff member I met! Super polite and professional! A shout to Adriana and Matheus for making me feel so welcome!! Thank you and the whole crew for a great experience!"
Cons: "It was great!"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Very tiny space No complementary food No complementary reserve seats in advance No complementary flight advance"
Cons: "Breakfast is too early, as soon as take off they serve. it should be before landing."
Pros: "It was very fast to board, and the landing was great"
Cons: "No entertainment, no free snacks"
Cons: "Desorganização do embarque e atraso na saída"
Cons: "Original flight cancelled without any notice / auto check-in not available / delay / aleatory seat selection / poor food service"
Cons: "Unless you have a super category in this airline, don’t even try to apply to an upgrade. Employees have more preference than you"
Pros: "The seat"
Cons: "The food. Awful. Awful. Beyond awful."
Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."
Pros: "Tryp Hotel at GRU"
Cons: "We should get some sort of refund. Just food and hotel is not enough"
Pros: "Gave good snacks"
Cons: "Annnouncements weren't clear in English or Spanish only in Portuguese"
Pros: "The food was really good. The service was good as well. The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "Economy seats are really uncomfortable for long flights, my knees suffered."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."
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."
Cons: "TAM is extremely unreliable and will never leave on time. LAN was actually very nice, but their sister TAM is by far the worst I've ever taken. I will be very clear next time when booking in South America to not take TAM again. We were delayed by 2hours for no apparent reason."
Cons: "It feel weird to have the crew discussing their personal things/stories while selling the on board duty free."
Pros: "Nobody bugged me"
Cons: "I like attention"
Cons: "Really but service I m not recommended sorry"
Pros: "Great flight. The only uncertainty with this level of tickets, is not knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. In general, it is worth what you pay for."
Cons: "Knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. They can save the food!!! It's owfull."
Cons: "All es excellent."
Pros: "Although the plane was fairly old and legroom tight, seat comfort was great"
Cons: "The only entertainment was a general TV showing a kids movie"

Cons: "More extra peanuts"
Pros: "The time, wasn't long flight"
Pros: "I had not used Aeromexico before and what a great experience it was! All the staff and crew were very helpful and courteous. The seats were comfortable with more leg room than other airlines in economy class. I will certainly use again and tell my friends about it."
Cons: "Excellent service throughout!"
Pros: "The flight attendant for this flight she was really nice and friendly good!! Nothing compared to my flight from LAX TO CDM.."
Cons: "The aircraft was late we stay in the aircraft for 1 hour not doing nothing cuz the in flight entretenimient was block until the aircraft was out to take off"

Pros: "We booked premier class and enjoyed the extra comfort. The first leg of the trip went well."
Cons: "The second leg of our trip had a flight cancellation, so we got bumped out of premier class even though we had already paid for it. There was an 8-hour delay in Mexico City and the second leg of our trip was no-frills, so we have to go through Aeromexico's online process to get reimbursed."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, the flight wasn't full and they spaced us out nicely. The volume was difficult but at least the movie/entertainment was available this time on the long flight. Always nice to have something to eat, even if it's not awesome :) Flights were basically on-time."
Cons: "This is not a problem with AeroMexico but I found it absolutely RIDICULOUS that our flight crew had to deplane from their in-bound flight - and Go Through Customs & Immigration - only to turn around and get back on the plane for the return trip. INSANE and Embarrassing as this does not happen in other countries - not even Canada."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "No hassle."
Cons: "Food was awful...did not even eat it."
Cons: "over booked flight"
Pros: "Great experience overall on this flight, only problem was that my lie-flat seat was broken and would only recline. Good food, great crew. Staff at Aeromexico Premier Salon Lounge were OUTSTANDING! Food could have more assortment, but was better than most lounges in the USA."
Cons: "lie-flat seat was broken and would only recline, so didn't really get what I paid for. I wasn't the only person with the problem, as 2 other seats were the same. MEX airport desperate need renovation. It looks like something from the 60's that hasn't been maintained well. Not up to standard for a country's Capital City."
Pros: "ease, no delays, friendly staff, free movies!"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra $25 tp choose our seats in advance!! :-("
Pros: "Conforto das poltronas. Mesmo na area mais simples."
Cons: "Comida, pois nao da pra comer feijao preto no cafe da manha junto com omelete, sistema de entretenimento que nao funcionou por quase 3hs. A equipe tambem parecia nao querer atender os passageiros."
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours before my flight to fly domestically. Waited 1.5 hours in line. Everyone who worked there didn't give a damn about anyone's situation. This isn't the first time the experience was miserable. I recommend viva or volaris. This airline can't get it together."
Pros: "Great staff, smooth ride, entertainment but my screen would restart frequently"
Cons: "Wish there were outlets in the plane or WiFi, the screens would black and restart interrupting your movie."
Pros: "Good legroom. Staff, food, boarding. Landed ahead of expected time."

Cons: ". . . because of delays. Cannot comment but see above."

Cons: "I paid too much money for my luggage (one suitcase) without any explanation at the moment. The lady sent me to paid while she weighted my suitcase. Later, I saw a label that said overweight. (I could take stuff out of it if I knew. I could safe $400 pesos)"
Pros: "Priority boarding is what I like in this trip."
Cons: "The crew had occupied the front overhead lugguge space that cause passenger need to find space for their luggage not around their seat. The crew member also occupied the remaining business class, is it better to upgrade some customer to the business to have great experience for the trip."
Cons: "They didn't announce the local time when we landed."
Pros: "Not anything stood out."
Cons: "It was the WORST FOOD I've ever had period. The beer was warm and in short supply. I resorted to drinking to ease the misery of the flight."

Pros: "food was good"
Pros: "Nothing good to write"
Cons: "Total discrimination"
Cons: "Aeromexico in a new cost reduction strategy decided to lower the temperature in their air conditioners making it a VERY uncomfortable flight. Also the lady at the gate didn't let me board the plane with a frappuccino arguing that's what the no liquids policy is about. A blatant display of ignorance and lack of training."
Cons: "Lack of information which caused delays to board."
Cons: "Unable to make flight due to unable to leave the country because they were not getting anyone leave the city and I called to explain situation and nobody could reschedule or give me a refund . The situation was critical and out of my hands. It's unfortunate that I lost the flight and 3 Almost $300. It so sad that no one could help me with this unexpected situation."

Pros: "Movies snacks coke very friendly"
Pros: "While in board the entire cute was great."
Cons: "While checking in I had a horrible experience with "manager" Abel he was rude , uneducated , sarcastic ,ignorant and not professional at all. I had to pay for a bag I had checked in online and had no charges at the time and when I arrived at airport he/she would not listen to me and only kept saying "new policy" was implemented on the day I was traveling . Which I thought was very unfair and should have been told day I checked in online. When I asked for his name and poof of policy , he said very ignorant I don't have to give you that information! So do you wanna travel or not? Pay the $25 fee !! And when I told him he was rude and ignorant he threaten me with calling security!! Not taking in consideration he had 4 other angry passengers on the side waiting to pay a made up policy ."
Pros: "the inflight movie."
Cons: "The flight was suppose to take off from Mexico City at 945 PM however nobody gave an explanation nobody knew the time or even the GATE I got to the airport at 6 PM, the flight took off at 1210 AM not only that I get on the plane and the AEROMEXICO crew had a really messed up attitude like they didnt care, I wanted to buy a gift for my wife from the magazine they had and the lady with a attitude simply said we dont have it, and I could keep going but It was a really bad experience for me."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight to Sao Paulo, and broked my luggage with even take responsibilities. A complete disaster the service quality."
Pros: "Despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."
Pros: "Nothing, Air Portugal is the worst I have ever experienced. Never fly Air Portugal, you have been warned."
Cons: "A different airline"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Pros: "nothing - they misinformed me left and right so I couldnt make properly informed decisions and then denied me boarding and told me to pay for a new flight after having spent over 750 and 3 days 2 nights at the airport due to the mishaps."
Cons: "staff that gives the correct information so u can properly plan for the check in and boarding procedures and compassion to advocate to let me onto the flight they made me jump thru hoops just to get onto."

Cons: "EVERYTHING..........................ALL TAP AIR PORTUGAL WAS A DISASTER"
Pros: "The aircraft was relatively new and well appointed."
Cons: "Service with a frown by half the staff. Took away headphones that I had stowed aside for a later time while taking a nap and gave it to another passenger - on a long haul business class flight. Poor service culture. Outbound flight was terrible. Six hour delay. No apologies. Rude telephone staff."
Pros: "Newer planes, good service"

Cons: "Food timing, displays for video tiny and no selection possivble."

Cons: "Unfortunately I had problems at airport security which wasn’t very pleasant!"
Cons: "Passenger was refused at check in because, according to the counter clerk, the ticket was not purchased in the country of residency but online in US. As a result, I lost the money, the passenger did not fly, and no refund was issued. This is the first time I ever heard of such BS. Not happy, very disappointed"
Cons: "The long delay, more than 1.5 hours."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Cons: "They had us inside the airplane for 1.5 hours. We understand there was a bad weather but we could get on board when they are ready to depart. It is not nice to be 1.5 hours plus 8 hours traveling"
Cons: "Stuardes don't have a sense of what costumer service is.. 6 hour flights and their plain aren't equipt with monitors to watch and entertain yourself Thank God I understood portugués but their translation to English was poor Food was not amazing I've been traveling since I was 6yrs old and I never felt so strongly about an airline... Not even easy jet"
Pros: "Food was good, but no champagne offered. The attendants were nice, though."
Cons: "It was not a business class at all. I was put in the same big bus together with econom class passengers. There was not supposed to be any business class in this airplane, since chairs are all the same and not comfortable. No entertainment of any kind at all. It's a waste of money."
Pros: "Big plane. Breakfast snack was a nice surprise, didn’t expect that on an intra-European flight"
Cons: "Boarding started a bit late, didn’t like the bussing on the airport. Entertainment minimal (then again, it was an intra-European flight ...)"
Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Cons: "I had an awful experience. A flight attendant named Comissário Bruno denied me a second dessert when I asked for one. I was flying business class on flight TP059 on March 4 2018 and have Gold status on Star Alliance. Many passengers had declined dessert and I felt extremely embarrassed by having been denied food on a plane for the first time in my life. The attitude and lack of tact of Comissario Bruno on TP059 spoiled the whole flight experience for me."
Cons: "No air conditioning. Lots of apps didn’t work on the entertainment device."
Cons: "This event refers to my TAP flight from Lisbon to Heathrow on 21-Jan-2018. We arrived to the airport nearly 2 hours before departure time, waited 35min in the security checks and my girlfriend was held 20min in the passport control. While she was queuing for the 2no police officers to check her passport, an airport assistant came to the queue and asked who was due to board in TP364 to Heathrow. She was made aware that my girlfriend was there due to board that flight. In the meantime I made my way to the gate to make the gate assistants aware that she was held in the passport checks and was already on her way to the gate. Having said that, the zealous assistants in the gate have closed the gate in front of me, 18min before scheduled departure time and - "very kindly" - told me that I wouldn't be boarding that flight anymore even though my girlfriend have arrived in the meantime. One can imagine the frustration I felt finding out that the flight departure was delayed and that the flight actually departed 40min late. At that time I was already suffering the extortion of the customer service from TAP, claiming from me circa 400Eur from each of us for a one way ticket in the next flight to London. Therefore... until I remember this... I AM NOT FLYING TAP ANYMORE... I am very proud of being Portuguese but in similar situations that occurred with me flying British Airways, Lufthansa or Air Italia, I have always been treated with much more respect and customer care!"
Cons: "The worst airline"
Pros: "Though it was a short flight, they did offer food and left mine on my table since I was sleeping. I woke up super thirsty and hungry so that was a nice surprise."
Cons: "TAP is perpetually delayed. It’s annoying."
Pros: "Very friendly personnel at gate."
Cons: "Arrogant crew. Hid in galley behind curtain for most of the flight. For several hours not even the offer of a cup of water! No possibility to charge electronics in economy class. Charge of $ 75.00 for first bag on an international flight?!? We're not talking about a budget airline, but THE airline of Portugal!"
Cons: "Boarding difficult for immigration"
Cons: "There were no power outlets"
Pros: "Hot food"
Pros: "We are still alive."
Cons: "Crew was rude, unhelpful, and the business class seats were essentially coach with the middle seat unoccupied. It was extremely uncomfortable and made worse by the crew being very impatient and not helpful when we had people in our seats, a 3-year-old we were trying to seat, and all of the overhead compartments closed so unclear where to place bags. Boarding began 20 min late and then we had to stand on the boarding ramp for another 20 min while the crew finished "cleaning" the aircraft."
Pros: "We left on time, east flight"
Pros: "The service they provided us reminded us of how airlines used to treat their customers in the past. From the customer service to the services provided and the legroom on the flight -- everything was more than what we expected and we would consider flying TAP Portugal again."
Cons: "some chaos at boarding, with redundant passport control. Upon arrival, we were held for 45 min at JFK, as the gate wasn't ready and the crew had the engines running and fumes penetrated the cabin that made me almost sick. I guess that's not much of a TAP fault, but it was a bad finish of an otherwise uneventful flight..."
Cons: "ran very late"
Pros: "USB ports to charge your phone, watched almost a whole season of HIMYM:) good dinner."
Pros: "Great airline, great service, great staff. Great flight!"
Pros: "Great seats, service and above all meals were very good. On time, nice crew."
Cons: "The entertainment system on executive class is old and needs a refreshment to compete with other airlines covering this same segment (VOD is nowadays a standard)."
