Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "Boarding a blitz chaotic"
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."

Pros: "Fine flight once we were in the air."

Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "I checked in online and paid for a checked piece of baggage, never received the boarding pass, so when I arrived to the airport to drop off the luggage and wait for boarding, the machines didn't recognize my ticket locator and I had to stand in line for almost 2 hours (missed my flight)…"

Cons: "Seats are hard, no leg space, no elbow space, the upright is 90degrees. The crew is not helpful, to the point and act like they are doing you a favor by being there.

Pros: "Arrived at destination"
Cons: "Left an hour and a half late due to mechanical problems. This also disrupted in flight entertainment system. Got to destination"

Pros: "Nothing -- though seat was okay. No leg room, but it reclined a little, and had those foldable headrests."
Cons: "The boarding was supposed to be by zone, but was just a mad rush. They served no food, not even for money. There was an onscreen ordering option, but for the entire flight it said "this service is temporarily closed". They didn't have a beverage cart. Not even water or coffee. I couldn't even get a cup of water to swallow some ibuprofen and an allergy pill (somebody brought a companion cat, I suspect, quite near to me). No food or water on an international flight across the Atlantic??? You've got to be kidding me -- that's gotta be close to illegal, not providing any means of hydration. But it's certainly cheap, mean, and unacceptable. Pathetic, too."
Cons: "Delays an chaos"
Cons: "I bought my tkts a moth ago. And when arrived to VLC airport i have no seat ans they put me on STB. NOT GOOD /("
Cons: "We had to walk onto the tarmac and climb up stairs to board the plane carrying our luggage and small child."

Cons: "Layovers are what makes the flight bad."
Cons: "The plan was too small."
Pros: "The cool thing about this airline is that it’s dirt cheap to get from Oakland to Barcelona!! I will say tho, you do get what you pay. We purchased the most basic flight and that’s really what it was. Tight leg room and lots of people. If you’re over 5’5 I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting extra leg room if it’s available. Aside from that. The flight was cool and the staff was nice!"

Pros: "Our flight was subcontracted through another airline, Level, so my comments are related to Level."

Cons: "Flight from Iberia, operated by AA and finaly no flight!!!!!"
Pros: "We flew like we were on a business class service, excellent crew, nice offer of meals, comfortable seats and flawless journey. If you are given the chance to upgrade to Premium, do it."

Pros: "Extremely punctual Friendly staff Comfortable seat design Outstanding entertainment options"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, not even a glass of water. Check in was horrendous. I pre purchased luggage Check in but when I arrived in airport the automated system doesn't like to that piece of data.

So finally after standing in both lines I did get checked in......."

Cons: "Flight was delayed which was out of their control"
Pros: "Self checkin, there was no line and things moved quickly."

No customer service desk at the airport. Ended up costing hundreds of dollars more to book another flight home."
Pros: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "Same as previous flight"
Pros: "The flight was direct to Lisbon"
Cons: "TAP a total disappointment. The biggest surprise of which you guys at Kayak are somewhat responsible is the ridiculous fees of $90 dollar per bag checked in. Obviously the face value of the ticket is cheaper but in practice I had to pay 360 dollars to check in my bags going and coming."

At the gate they said the flight would be delayed half an hour, however they just called us to start boarding a half an hour after the flight was expected to leave. At that time the passengers of the previous flight were just starting to leave the plane so everyone that was about to board then had to stand in the freezing cold tunnel way with all of our bags for another 20 minutes while the previous passengers got off. There was no food or any beverage other than water offered on the flight."

Cons: "We had to pay for a check in luggage fee. Then flight was delayed for about an hour. The gate number change so we had to keep on checking to see what gate it was to be. They keeping on changing the delayed time so it end up being nearly two hours before we got on the plane. I was very disappointed that we didn't get where we needed to be on time. Our hour and 45 minute flight end up just wasting time waiting for the plane. They could of at least refund our check in bag fee for the inconvenient."
Pros: "Stay away from TAP. I wish the people at the counter were just rude - they were tormenting us and lying to me about my luggage. When they found out I insisted on not checking my bag, they told me they would "keep it" in the meantime. Turned out they went ahead and threw the bag onto the plane. We ended up having to go find it at lost and found. They initially told me it was going to only take 5-10 mins to retrieve my luggage, but then 40 mins passed and still nothing. My poor mom had to wait by the empty belt - and boarding started and the luggage still wasn't there. They forced us to pay 35 euros (it's principle, not the money) when their policy said nothing about it when I booked it on the website. My mom was in tears and I had the worst few hours of my life. TAP - you are disgusting. It takes a lot for me to be upset but you really did everything out of your way to make us suffer. Even told us we might have to miss our flight. You put a huge dent on my trip."

Cons: "Seats are very small. No entertainment system."
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing!!"
Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it.

Pros: "We were shuttled to the plane then the plane wasn't ready, so the bus took us back. We just stood on the bus by the gate for a good 20min. Then went back to the plane again. This time it was ready for boarding. I don't understand why they took us if the plane was ready. Once we were there why did we go back to the gate again?? Get it together TAP. My first and only experience and it wasn't a good one."
Pros: "Comfort And good service"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket 4 months prior to flying....traveled half way around the world and the flight was oversold. I was bumped and left with people meeting in another country waiting for no one to show up. Go to hell TAP Portugal Airlines."

Pros: "Decent enough flight, seats comfortable enough for short haul wouldn’t want to go long haul on the same seats, good selection of onboard snacks"
Cons: "Flight was half hour late, priority seats should be reserved for the first seats on the plane rather than scattered all over the plane, suitcases shouldnt be allowed on board they take up too much space for anyone else and slow down the boarding of the plane as people attempt to haul them up the stairs, some staff could be more polite and less abrupt and some could attempt to speak louder and clearer"

Cons: "It was 2h late Seats are not reclinable"
Pros: "One of the staff in the terminal was friendly and showed us how to weigh our bags and collect the bag tag."
Cons: "Forced to check in online or face a charge. Paid €45 Euros per bag to check in. For Americans traveling between outside countries, Ryan Air has a small area on the boarding pass regarding the "attaining of a visa stamp on the boarding pass, in the baggage drop-off area, prior to boarding the flight." The rest of the boarding pass has other nonsense in larger and highlighted texts, but something as important as obtaining a visa stamp was small and obscure. The gate attendant made a stink about us not having it stamped and was trying to prevent us from boarding because of it. Our response was that no one, at any point, stated we needed a visa stamp on the boarding pass when we checked our luggage in the baggage drop-off area. I've traveled between countries before and have never experienced something like this. Additionally, Ryan Air knew we were Americans since we had to provide our passport numbers abe the country that issued them when we checked in online. You would think that they would have their systems flag Americans so that their employees know to say "hey, I see you're an American. FYI, you need to her a visa stamp on your boarding pass at the baggage drop-off area prior to boarding." Will never use Ryan Air again in my life, regardless of the supposed savings (cause in reality, there are OTHER & BETTER airlines to choose from; don't give crooks business and better to give it to their competitors)."
Cons: "We paid for a checked bag and the airline made us pay again."
Pros: "Plane artived late. Boardef late and arrived late. Immigration was understaffed and slow causing us to miss out scheduled bus ride. Charged me an extra $30 for one of my bags."

Cons: "Lines in Budapest are terribly long"
Pros: "Nice crew and flight in time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable plane"

Cons: "Environment not clean and sloppery service"
Pros: "Very Professional"
Cons: "Over crowded. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The comfort of the plane, it was over crowded with no air on the plane. Getting on and off the plane took entirely way to long."
Cons: "I have flown budget airlines before, but this takes it to a new level. I would frankly pay more to not have to be nickeled and dimed."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for about 40 minutes after takeoff with no AC because they couldn't start the engines? I am not really sure if that was the reason they gave us zero communication..."
Cons: "Cattle car approach. Cost saving is commendable. Charging for EVERYTHING is not."

Pros: "Nothing. The only good thing was the flight attendant in Dublin who was helpful"
Cons: "The staff was very rude in Barcelona. The fees were ridiculous. The rules were not clearly outined about baggage fees. Flight was 2 hours delayed. Terrible experience. Never flying this airline again."
Pros: "Horrible . The app to make reservation it is poor designed. They charge me twice 200 euros and employees don't care with the excuse that everything is online. Never again"
Cons: "Over 1 hour delay! Really terrible"
Cons: "Chewing gum all over floor - got on my bag and clothes - food on floor too."
