Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The 'ease' of travelling with B. A., the efficiency of the staff and the comfortable seats in the plane all added to an enjoyable trip."
Pros: "Crew was nice, complimentary refreshments on board. Seat had spacious leg room."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed."
Pros: "The hot bacon sandwich for breakfast was generous for economy."
Cons: "We left late but I’m not sure the airline could do much about it."
Pros: "The seating configuration. Complementary drinks."
Cons: "The chance to be able to volunteer the hand baggage in Dusseldorf airport the same as available in London Terminal 5. The plane is small and it is best to have it sent to the haul after clearing security. This was not offered at any stage at Dusseldorf."
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "missed the connecting flight due to delay"
Cons: "Delay of a half hour."
Pros: "The Flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The gate could have actually showed our flight which it did not. Someone could have communicated that the flight was delayed instead of saying final call on the boards. Overall it was very confusing and no staff was present to assist. In the end we were 2 hours late."
Cons: "Be on time so we dont miss our connection"
Pros: "Flight and on board service was fine"
Cons: "It is not acceptable when arriving at the recommended time, at a major airport, with a major airline, to find no desks open. We checked in online but our passes “could not be issued”. There were no self service terminals so we stood waiting an hour. Staff were sitting idly but not serving customers."
Pros: "More legroom comes as standard, compared to competitor airlines on the same route with the same aircraft"
Cons: "The interior of the plane is a little bit tatty"
Pros: "I like every single thing staff was kindly, smiley and helpful. Check in easy, I liked very much our pop corn and Fanta complimentary offer as also our quick trip. Landing smoothly and nicely"
Cons: "there was nothing I didnt like"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Staff very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Because some of the passengers had not booked in online they were selected to be admitted from fight if takeoff problems occurred. Apparently there was a problem due to high wind gusts in taking off from Florence but information was very minimal and not displayed to passengers. People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"
Cons: "Better not be hungry while boarding"
Pros: "I think I may have had more room in the seat on this little plane than when I crossed the ocean. Also the window seemed bigger. Very comfortable flight."

Cons: "Having to board the plane in the pouring rain by running across the tarmac."

Cons: "Need to work on punctuality. Would have been an excellent journey if it wasn’t for the delay."
Cons: "Called me a no show even though I was there."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, staff was delightful, flight was early arrival, everything was super."
Cons: "We arrived with 3 hours before our flight, as recommend for International travel. But we were not allowed to check our bags until 9:50 AM. We waited on line for almost 2 hours! If we had been told of this restriction we could have gone to a lounge to relax. Instead we waited a long time on foot."
Pros: "Stuff happens outside of the company's control and the inbound flight was an hour late due to crew absence. We were kept informed along the way and we boarded 55 minutes later than expected. However I couldn't have wanted for a better inflight service. Charming helpful and effective."
Cons: "Having to wait for the delayed flight."
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "There were no gluten-free food options, not even an apple, so no food for us."
Pros: "Better than Ryanair/easyjet but then again. That’s nothing to write home about"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours. The plane was old dirty and stinky. I paid last minute for my flight so it was a lot more than usual so I feel ripped off because of the poor quality"
Pros: "Leg room service and food all included and excellent"
Cons: "Unable to get e tickets,so need to find somewhere local to print ticket within 24 hours of return"
Cons: "I missed the flight not because of me, but the confusion information that a staff gave it to me."

Cons: "Our flights were delayed 3 hours and 20 and although we were compensated for lunch at the airport, when handing out refreshments onboard we were completely missed out. Also pretty annoyed to find that we could only use the lunch vouchers in a hand full of the bars and restaurants."
Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."
Pros: "Aircraft was excellent LCY is very convenient Price was very competitive for most trips"
Cons: "BA is BA, Better than low cost guys but not LH Sometimes prices are high, with coach being higher than Club."
Cons: "Flight was fine LCY Worked very well. You are BA I DO NOT WANT TO BE NICKLE AND DIMED TO TAKE LUGGAGE. Yare not Ryan Air. If there is a charge make it clear when I buy the ticket. I do not expect to have to tell BA to grow up."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Small planes have better nicer seats and more leg room"
Cons: "Massive delay due to snow, no vouchers given until flight was cancelled (and it was all closed). Only updates were via BA app or email. Next day flight also delayed, and again delays communicated only via app or email (not at signs at airport)"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. On time, clean aircraft and professional."
Cons: "But the food policy is a joke. They wouldn’t give us anything, including water without buying it. I had no local currency and was waiting until I landed to use the ATM. When flying, people need water."
Cons: "THE BACK FIRST TOOK MY MONEY, THEN MY FULL PASSPORT DETAILS AND THEN DENIED ME FLYING BECAUSE THEY PUT MY SURNAME TWICE ON THE BOARDING PASS. THEY ARE ALWAYS WIN. I AM OUT OF POCKET FOR £170 AND DELAYED BY 2.5 HOURS. THIS IS THE WAY THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY - BY CHEATING ON PASSENGERS."
Cons: "City Airport crowded and overly commercialised. Rip-off prices."
Pros: "Ease of checking in and getting to departure gate at London City Airport."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"
Pros: "I understand and appreciate not being able to land in Florence due to conditions and safety, and they were able to give us the closest Pisa airport."
Cons: "They kind of left us stranded in PiSA. Promised bus that didnt happen. We had to pay out of pocket 12euros each to Florence bus station, then pay another 6euros from bus station to florence airport. PAIN! Did not get to our AirBNB at tuscany until 21:30 instead of 14:00! Would be niced to get reim for all 8 members in our party!"
Cons: "The boarding process was like a Third World country. The flight was fine, the flight attendants were lovely, but the boarding process was ridiculous. Nobody in the gate area knew which gate it was leaving from or what time it was leaving, it was quite delayed, finally it was posted to start boarding at five minutes after the departure time and instead, when everyone looked up, people were boarding 10 minutes before that. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Free food and drink remains on City flights. Convenience of City."
Cons: "Long flight. No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarded on Time"
Cons: "Flight took off but the plane was faulty. We landed an hour after take off waited in a room with no air conditioning for over an hour with no updates. After 3 hours after the flight was supposed to leave they cancelled the flight. Very poor and very disappointed!"
Pros: "Lucky enough that the flight was half empty so there was space for the passengers, the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was from Faro in July excesseding temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius outside, while inside was a an absolute freezer, not more than 15/16 degrees inside. I had to change cloathing mid flight cus I couldn't deal with the cold air anymore. On previous flight from London stansted to fato was exactly the same, and there wasn't any difference, we asked if we could turn off the aircon, no answer was given, neither warm covers were provided since the air was so cold. The flight attendant was female, by the name tag was "Praya" was somewhat a bit insensitive, but I realised after that she was as unfortunate as we were cus she was wearing a short sleeve shirt part of uniform, and experiencing the same as the rest of the passengers. The temperature issue caused the flight to be extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Loved arriving in the city instead of Gatwick."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Flight was being delayed every half hour. Finally after 4 hours we took off. Flight was due for take off at 16:20 but finally departed at 20:30. Food coupons were good for a sandwich and a drink. Will switch airlines in future as we make frequent trips to London."
Cons: "They were 25 min late landing. Even though we were taking the same plan from London City to Glasgow, we had to get off and go through customs and reboard, all in 5 min. They knew we had to do that and they almost took off without us and a few others in the same position. Then the stewardesses acted like we caused them to take off late to Glasgow....really rude."
Cons: "They refused to hang my wedding dress, because I was not flying business class, so I had to shove it in the overhead. The were half hour late boarding. my "hot" meal was cold. They did not load my luggage on to the plane. I checked my bags two and a half hours before the flight time to go from Santorini Greece to Glasgow Scotland. Apparently it in three hours, since the plane was a half hour late boarding, they could not manage to load my luggage before take off."
Cons: "Delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "Crew and new, spacious aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Seat could have been a little more comfortable, but overall it was fine."

Pros: "Surprised it was as good as it was having read so much negative news about what British Airways had become"
Pros: "When my flight was cancelled due to weather they got me on to another flight right away and I didn’t miss my connection.

Cons: "No snack - expensive baggage-fee"

Pros: "Short and sweet but a very comfortable ride."
Cons: "Not even free water"
Pros: "Short flight to London"
Cons: "There was no boarding pass issued for the Lon - Ny trip. Additionally, when we arrived to London, there was no direct transfer from our landing gate to our departure gate forcing us to have to exit and then reenter. There was no ground avail to assist either. Since the dub - Lon flight was delayed, we have 60 min to get a boarding passes / re renter security / & had to run to the flight which was a mile all with a 2 yr old."
Pros: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"
Cons: "Cheap headphones given out for the movies, almost impossible to hear speech"
Cons: "Weather delays. No water except for purchase"
Cons: "That we paid for breakfast for that segment. Cramped & I'm average."

Pros: "Crew very friendly. Decent leg room in economy"
Cons: "no communication and a few apologies6"
Cons: "Tough time. British airways wasn’t very helpful. Once our gate was changed no one told us or gave new boarding pass. We did have 7 hours to figure it out. But a clue where to go would have been nice. Missed my connection. Shuttle and hotel was a mess. Got a few hours of sleep outside the airport. Maybe I’ll get to Los Angeles soon."
Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return firstname.lastname@example.org or 07799411994 for response"
Pros: "Fruebdjf, courteous and good food."
Pros: "Overall it was fine. Friendly staff, everything pretty efficient."
Cons: "Truly disappointed to find that BA has decided to charge for ANY beverage whatsoever, even tea. I have such fond memories of flying BA years ago. My husband and I so enjoyed the disposable plastic blue teacups that we brought them home with us and still use them as kitchen scoops all these years later. I know that may seem silly, but even without that nostalgic memory, it just feels SUPER unpleasant to have to pay for the basic (non-alcoholic) beverage service. Honestly, just charge a few bucks extra on the ticket in the first place."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Waiting for an hour to disembark"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind"
Cons: "Charge you for even instant coffee, the alla cart way of doing things is taking over the industry. all about making more money"
Pros: "Gate agents good. Same with cabin crew"
Cons: "No AC charging. Legroom in business was tight"
Pros: "I appreciated the brand new seats on the aircraft which were quite comfortable, and the friendly crew who actually were nice enough to have a conversation with. Enjoyed the Marks and Spencer’s food too."
Cons: "The boarding at Dublin airport was not great, masses of crowds from every displaced flight due to snow (not all British Airways, many other airlines adding to the crowd). Was not awful but not fun."
Pros: "Great service as always"
Cons: "The only complaint I have is our bags getting lost twice. I’m very understanding that these things happen. But for it to happen twice seems like people might be careless to the problem."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Pros: "Great staff, ultra professional"
Pros: "Finally getting to my destination 3 hours late."
Cons: "Issues with check-in, flight delayed multiple times, gate changes multiple times, non communication from attendants."
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "The change of seats with the motove of keeping balance on the plane"
Cons: "I am 6'3" and I cannot find sufficient leg room. The answer is paying additional for seats with extra leg room, is no answer at all. The answer is quit jamming more seats in to a ever shrinking cabin."
Pros: "This was a BA codeshare but operated by AerLingus,supposedly a 4* airline."
Cons: "So called 4*"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "No complementary drink or snack on flight and no entertainment system available...they said it was because of a short flight. You could buy drinks though of course....."
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "Seating was very packed"
Pros: "All staff were very helpful and polite"
Cons: "This flight was delayed. When it came to boarding my husband who needs special assistance was first taken to board first but then had to be brought back as refuelling was not done and was then last on board. When we arrived at Heathrow his special assistance was not there and we had to wait for about 10/15 minutes. It is stressful traveling with someone who needs help and even worse when there are delays. We were advised that we could leave the aircraft which we did but we were left waiting in an area without any toilets which is a problem for him"
Cons: "No wifi. No tvs. 1985 just called and they want their no entertainment airplane back. This is 2017.... get with the program!"

Cons: "No food, and no entertainment. An older airplane"
Pros: "Replacement flight was fine"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was not automatically re-booked, luggage lost and not delivered despite repeated effort to reclaim it. Aer Lingus hold time on the phone was over an hour and attendants were unhelpful (said my flight wasn't cancelled in their system even though I received an email that it was - which ended up being true)"
Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Cons: "No beverage service."
Cons: "No complimentary drink or snack, how come?"
Cons: "We are really upset that Aer Lingus and/or Bitish Airways lost our baggeage! All our clothes, toiletries, medicine, and other personal belongings are MIA and we want these two airlines to work together and expedite finding and tertuning our luggage."
Pros: "British Airways offered me a direct flight from Dublin to Philadelphia on their sister carrier American Airlines."
Pros: "Short flight but thought there would be beverage service????"
Cons: "Rude at check in. Late taking off."
Pros: "Great meals, entertainment options, and service. Perfect landing of the 747 as well."
Cons: "Not the fault of British Airways, but Denver International Airport has a cumbersome and lengthy process for the re-entry of U.S. Citizens. We stood in two different lines for over an hour to be screened for customs."
Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "I waited 30min at the priority check in queue while being first in line this whole time. There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The sign said it would board by rows but they did general call and it was ridiculous on a flight this large. Nothing"
Pros: "Staff was cheerful"
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Small seats."
Cons: "they lost all our luggage"
Cons: "We were late taking off due to the airport and plane not sharing passenger data, and then forced to delay exiting the plane and then forced to sit on a bus rather than enter the terminal."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient, friendly crew, on time!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable.nice leg room."
Cons: "Boarding on every airplane company seems off. Sitting in seat 6D and I’m in the second to last boarding group. That cheese on the burger pricing for getting on before others is getting old. Be better."
Pros: "legroom in business is good, food was ok. only one round of drinks was offered."
Cons: "no lounge access in dublin for TAP Business Passengers. Handling of the delay was not well managed."
Pros: "Good service on the plane, the food was good and the seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit uncomfortable at the Lisbon airport. The space provided at the gate for the passengers to wait was small, with everyone trying to fit in front of the gate, it was tight."
Cons: "One more toilet on the Lisbon Geneva flight would have been nice."
Cons: "Leave on time. Offer more snacks"

Cons: "If baggage claim was faster"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Long day. Did not inform you of what was going on. Changed gated not very clear."

Cons: "More communication with the passengers."
Pros: "Superb food"
Pros: "A short but very pleasant flight and food was served, excellent in every category."
Cons: "Nothing, it was the best short flight I've ever had. The staff were very attentive and did a great job of keeping everyone happy."
Cons: "We didn't select our meal option for vegetarian because the last time we did we ended up with a horrible, horrible, hockey puck like dry food option. We assumed there would be a cheese pasta option, as there usually is, well we were completely wrong. Both options were meat, even the salad had meat in it. So we got a roll with butter, a tiny fruit, and a disgusting wet dessert. Even the breakfast was meat and cheese. I got online to select our meal option for our return trip, and the options are out of control. We have a lacto-ovo-vegetarian option, whatever that is"
Pros: "airlines could have mentioned that the second leg would require going thru security again and would take a very long time and that I should do this immediately after disembarking even though a gate had not yet been assigned. As A consequence of an intensive interview process before boarding the international leg of the trip (initially only two reps processing everyone on the plane for a few minutes each) the plane left the gate late. It also lost another 15 -20 minutes in flight making it 30 minutes late and I missed my connection in Miami necessitating me to spend a night in a motel and finish my flight the next day."
Cons: "Had the crew enabled me to be first off the plane I would have made the connection but I lost an additional 20-25 minutes being seated in the rear of the plane"
Pros: "I’m taking offFlight was smooth and service was great."
Cons: "Flight was smooth and service was great. Long wait before taking off."
Cons: "Not getting new business configuration"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "This flight never indicated that there would be an additional charge for baggage. It cost me $400 extra dollars. The service for the airline was terrible and the layovers were horrible."
Pros: "I think the customer service was surprising. If the crew were unhappy they certainly didn’t show it."
Cons: "The space is tight. I could move some but not a whole lot."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "If you are seating at the end of the plane they never have the 2 choice of meal and you are force to eat whatever is left, it happens more than once, seem to be the practice and is not fair to the costumer"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to eat, not even paying."
Cons: "Next-day connecting flight after a delayed arrival and involuntary stopover in Porto due to air traffic over LIS. This time around, the flight took off an hour late because of [guess...] air traffic. Well, my dear LIS management, that's how you sink your national carrier."
Cons: "everything is ok but food is bad. better give to passenger fruit or bisquit, wafers"
Cons: "Don't like their bagage fees"
Pros: "The crew provides a good service"
Cons: "The airline wanted to double charge me for baggage after have had a layover during my trip, so when I was checking my luggage by second time in order to go to my destination, they insisted on make me pay, even thought I had paid my luggage online before to take the flight from the beginning."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No TV"
Cons: "Theo lost my luggage the plane was full of dust"
Cons: "Boarding was refused at gate due to late arrival of previous flight which was also a TAP flight. No assistance to delay following flight or accelerate our deplaning even though the next identical flight was three days later."
Pros: "The crew were kind and considerate."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever experienced. There was an incessant, loud high-pitched buzzing noise for the entire duration of the flight (we were seated in the very back row so it was particularly loud for us, but others further up said it was bad for them too). Also, we had straight turbulence for over two hours. I've never gotten sick on a plane before, and my husband never gets motion sickness, but we both threw up (and I think several others did, too). I don't blame the crew for any of this, as I know most, if not all, of it was out of their control. However, I would be very nervous to flight TAP again due to this experience."
Pros: "Best flight I have ever taken. Hands down"
Pros: "In the air excellent"
Cons: "On the ground, poor communication"
Pros: "The food was good and there was a decent variety of things to watch."
Cons: "Having another TSA check at our gate at the last minute just because we were going to New York, the whole process made our boarding time late and our take off time pushed back even though they had 3 hrs to figure it out. The main flight stuardess in charge was rude and kept giving attitude to people when they asked questions because half the people on the flight didn't understand Portuguese. I wasn't allowed to pick my seat on the website so we ended up in a middle row. The person i was traveling with is over 6 ft and could not comfortably fit in the seats. Thankfully no one sat on the end so we were able to spread out between 3 seats. The entire experience made us not want to fly into Portugal again."
Cons: "Flight left without us"
Pros: "The staff was very nice. Only bad incident was the misinformation on getting the D Tax. We went early to the airport to do it but could not get it because of erroneous information form the check in agent."
Cons: "When we checked our bags the check in agent did not let us take out bags after getting the boarding pass so we could get the D Tax refund at Customs. She said it was not necessary. She was wrong. French customs wanted to see the merchandise which we no longer had. When we complained at TAP we were told do it in Lisbon. Again in Lisbon we could not get the D tax because that custom agent wanted to see the merchandise which was being transferred to our Lisbon - Newark flight. We loss refunds of over $400. This problem ruined a perfect trip."
Cons: "It's always fun to go into the bathroom and find a sink ful of puke in there. It had been there for some time by the stench and they way it had slopped all over. I told the flight attendant and they were like oh well. It was gross. Add that on top of I am a DISABLED person and I could not carry my case up the steps and was told someone would bring it up. They did not. It went under the plane with no tag and then when I arrived in Lisbon it was somehow my fault. The flight crew there trying to "assist" were horrendous. I was actually told I should not be flying internationally if I can't carry my bag. Isn't there rules about bags flying unattended? Even internationally. How was my LAPTOP case supposed to get to EWR without a tag? Shouldn't it have been checked? Shouldn't the crew have noticed this and said something to flight attendants? The club and plane both were filthy. The first seat I sat in in the club smelled so strongly of pee I had to go stand (as it was so crowded) I am a million mile flyer and I will never fly TAP again."

We tried to get a refund and they denied changing anything even though we have documentation."

Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "Service was poor, the seat was not comfortable."
Cons: "It wasn't at all the airline's fault, but this flight saw random searches at the gate of carry-on luggage + patdowns of selected passengers.

Fortunately I'd experienced it before (same flight out of Lisbon) and knew there was a good chance of a repeat...."

We arrived at the airport 2 hours before our flight and we were told we could not complete our check in process as it was only available online. The flight had delayed 1 hour and we still payed 110 euro. The crew had very rude attitude. This was the first time flying with Ryanair and it was a complete disaster. I believe it is unacceptable to pay for something that it was not my mistake and I except to receive a response from you soon."
