Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Cons: "Crew was a bit loud and kept me awake during flight in one of the tail seats"
Cons: "The only complaint I have was the bag dropoff counter. There was one person, checking in 9 airlines! A second person came after awhile, and they were amazing, polite and very efficient. But the wait to get to the counter was not acceptable. Even tho' we were fourth in line, they began calling people from the back for another, I guess, earlier flight, different airline. Understandable, but frustrating for those of us who arrived early, but had to wait. Otherwise, flying Aer Lingus was a pleasure."

Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The flight attendants were just awesome. First time flying with Aer Lingus and I must say they are my favorite airline henceforth"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. The blankets and pillow were an amazing addition and made the flight more comfortable."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed free WiFi"
Pros: "The entertainment was good and that’s about it! The crew was extremely bossy! The aircraft should have been cleaned better. Terrible odors and dirty kitchens!"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Best flight I have ever been on"
Pros: "The crew on the plane and at the Dublin airport were nice. We haven’t made it to Dubrovnik.

Cons: "What couldn’t have? Thanks Aer Lingus."
Cons: "fly cleanup"
Pros: "Never made it onto the plane due to flight departing early and my flight landed in Dublin late. So there was no experience for me on this flight"
Cons: "The flight to Madrid left with about 15 passengers waiting to leave the flight from Chicago. We landed before our flight to Madrid was to depart. But by time we walked out we all missed our flight and had to rebook. I’m sure the flight to Madrid could’ve waited for the 15 of us. But they didn’t."
Pros: "Quick easy boarding. Quality Captain and staff"
Pros: "Hostess were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat in first row and my bag half way down the plane so although I could’ve been first off I was in actual effect the very last."

Pros: "One male Steward was first class,efficient and very helpful to everyone"
Pros: "I loved that they had blankets and pillows available, and the seats overall were comfortable. I also loved the in seat screens so we could watch movies. The select was a little limited compared to other airlines, but they still had some brand new releases. They also fed us two meals and a snack, and the crew was super nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. It was done by row numbers but not very well announced, so I wasn’t actually sure when my row was supposed to board."
Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "The flights themselves were nice. Food was fine. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "Getting to our connection was awful. Prescreening getting into the US was terrible. Got selected for special screening and the officers said the gate knew we were held up there. Only had one hour to reach connection. Lost an immense amount of time getting swabbed and patted down. The gate was closed when we arrived. Had to run to the gate. By accident we found out the gate was closed from someone who happened to hear word that we were looking for the gate to JFK. Almost didn’t get on the flight. If we didn’t run who knows if we would have made it. If you are only giving people an hour to get to their connection, then don’t let them get held up for 40 minutes. It’s idiotic."
Cons: "The flight was nearly an hour late taking off."
Cons: "No food or drink unless paid for"
Cons: "Paying for inflight drinks. All US airlines provide FREE complimentary drinks and snacks. Seemed in poor taste to charge for such things made the airlines appear cheap."
Cons: "Boarding was hopeless as usual. Held us on stairways for ages after passports were checked by the ground crew"
Pros: "We liked that they resolved our issues fast and they were very polite"
Cons: "We didn’t fly to Dublin because our fly was change to London , we had paid for our seats 150+ for 2 London was very stressful , at arriving we spend 45minutes to get into the terminal waiting for a bus The layover was 1:20 minutes so we arrived on time but all the waiting made us late to check in . After runing like chickens with no head a polite customer representative put us through and informed us that our fly was delayed becouse the plane had mechanical issues, so after all that we had to wait 1 hr at the airport and another 1 hr or so to make sure the plane was ready to leave , after that we made it to New York instead of 7 pm we arrived 10 pm , very tired"
Cons: "The chairs are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. The staff was extremely friendly. The games on the video screen weren't bad."
Cons: "There was a technical problem with the plane at our gate when we landed, so we were on the tarmac for an hour waiting for a gate to open. Video choices were limited, and Internet was extremely overpriced."
Pros: "Excellent service again!"
Pros: "US preclearance in Dublin No immigration wait in Boston"
Cons: "Coffee was terrible Sound in the headset was hard to hear. Seat had to be manually pulled to vertical My ear buds would not fit the 2-hole system on this plane"

Cons: "Cramped spaces"
Pros: "Never made the flight"
Pros: "Pre clearance in Dublin Lounge Seat facilities"

Pros: "The staff was all very professional and the flights themselves were all really quite nice."
Cons: "In short, I was surprised to find myself on Aer Lingus as every travel doc and app had me on British Airways. Apps can’t handle international check in or multiple flights. There’s no point having an app or a website option of checking in if you can’t accommodate this service."
Pros: "Seats were larger with more leg room. Flight calm and without incident"
Cons: "No snack"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"
Pros: "Terminal 5"
Pros: "Quick flight. Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and are short on comfort. The "occupied" toilet signs not working causing queues. On meals, forget the things that are impossible to to sustain in a fresh/tasty state, like melon, Tomatoes fried, certain types of sandwich where the bread absorbs any liquid/juice, overuse of rolls. The meals are tested under almost clinical conditions, who ever travels Economy and tastes the food in situ. Put more of the edible foood in. People prefer a single course meal as against a 3 course with dead ends on each side of the main."
Pros: "Pilot announcements were very clear"
Cons: "Too many oversized cabin bags"
Cons: "The window seats in these new airplanes are freezing."
Pros: "Food was extremely good for economy & professional & experienced cabin crew."

Cons: "Better choice of food such as prepacked salads etc not just sandwiches"
Cons: "Boarding was messy"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew were professional and courteous. Seats were fairly comfortable ( though one was broken)."
Cons: "Could have been a bit more room - was slightly squashed. Disappointed to have to pay for tea. Porridge from M&S on flight was horrible."
Pros: "It was easy to get on and off. The crew were well drilled in the art of moving people on"
Cons: "BA like others charge a premium for using them over easyJet and the like. I take offence to paying £350 for a ticket and hen having to buy a sandwich. If you want to be like low cost airlines, then have the same pricing structure. BA = Rip off."
Cons: "My brand luggage was damaged during the flight. Although I still had to pay 65 pounds for the extra bag."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after boarding us and letting us sit on the plane on the rollway for 2 hours."
Pros: "First class check in was smooth and efficient ! Love the passage way that lead me directly to lounge"
Cons: "Service in the lounge should be improved and there is no clear direction of which gate ie Gate 10A / C / E etc when boarding . Had to check a few times to ensure it’s the right gate"
Cons: "Feeling like one of many cattle funnelled through an already over-capacity system."
Pros: "On time, all the staff were lovely at the terminals and on the plane"
Cons: "All goid"
Cons: "We love everything was our first time and was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."
Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to
Pros: "No hassle and all straight forward"
Pros: "most pleasant flight i have had. Crew were perfect"
Cons: "Too hot, meant to arrive 5 mins early but ended up 15 mins late as we sat on the runway for about half an hour without air conditioning."
Cons: "Finding out that I had to pay more for my bag."
Pros: "Courtesy of tge british airway staff"
Pros: "Boarding pass to from LHR to Hyderabad was not iisued at SAT airport. The guy with wheelchair at London didn't help in getting me boarding pass in time. My flight scheduled left. I had to wait for the next flight enroute to Delhi rather than hyderabad directly. I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Cons: "Non-issue of boarding pass from LHR to Hyderabad at SAT airport USA. Callous attitude of the guy who didn't help me in getting me the boarding pass at LHR. Enrouting me through Delhi to Hyderabad instead of a direct flight I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Cons: "Delays delays and delays"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "When I reserved in Kayak it said it included luggage!! I was charged 65 pounds!!! I need a regund for this!!!! Please let me know what to do!!"
Pros: "Good smooth journey"
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no notice.or explanation Stuck at Heathrow no alternatives available. We are a party of 7 3 young children and 1 disabled passenger . Now one of us flys tomorrow via Madrid, and palma before mahon. All others fly Sunday via Barcelona. Hol ruined disgrace"
Pros: "No entertainment and no vegetarian selections in the menu unless you book in advance again the plane was dirty"
Pros: "Because someone was sitting in my seat, I was moved to one near the exit which has more legroom, without having to pay £28. The flight was on time and we were kept well informed of some chaos that was happening around push back."
Cons: "The atrocious check-in process - why only 24 hours or less? Why are you always allocated a seat between other people. Why is it almost impossible to change that? - oh yes, because BA want you to pay a premium to avoid the hassle."
Pros: "They upgraded me to business class"
Cons: "I had a connecting flight from London to Madrid. Not only was the flight to London late over an hour, because of the security check point and liquid quantity confusion I was late to the connecting flight to Madrid and had to take a later flight which made me late to my meeting but on top of that I had to get rid of some of my stuff because it was over my limit on liquids. Very frustrating!"
Pros: "Loads of leg room. Comfy."
Cons: "No food, no hold luggage allowance. Online checkin process is clunky and buggy."
Cons: "It is a flight operated by Iberia and business class doesn’t really feel like such"
Pros: "The plane landed"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable; wasn't brought promised water, landed with headache as a result. Flightlate"
Pros: "Todo fue prrfecto"
Pros: "The man at the customer service desk in london airport was nife."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of an issue with airplane coming from lax to london. All i got was a 5 euro voucher. And i was meeting someone at madrid airport and neither of us had any way of getting in cotact with each other. It was a freaking nightmare."
Cons: "As per above"
Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Cabin Crew flight data punctuality"
Cons: "That I had to PAY for water to drink that was not tap water No room for my carry-on in overhead bins...took some arranging."
Pros: "Staff were great, classy even, making the journey pleasant"
Cons: "On checking in I wasn’t given the option to add a bag, meaning I had to pay over double the rate at the airport. Trying to add one online or on the app failed. Calling the support helpline was a waste of time and money; spending 10mins on hold before being told there was nothing to be done."
Pros: "Oneworld status points."
Cons: "The cancelled flight, the late departure of the rebooked flight, the charges for checked baggage and tea on a premium airline - for this level of service you should get Ryanair/easyJet prices. BA is embarrassing."
Pros: "I took this flight to Madrid after missed the connection from a delayed takeoff. It was spacious l!"
Cons: "The crew did not get my luggage on the plane in time so it was left in London for a day and I had no luggage."
Pros: "Pilot gave good communication of flight progress, and arrived early."
Cons: "Slow boarding and disembarkation processes."
Cons: "When you book BA and end up with Iberia, that’s definitely not what you want..."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and efficient - it was a short flight so they had very little time to prepare the meal, distribute the meal and prepare the aircraft for landing - but they did."
Cons: "The English announcements by the cabin crew (not the pre-recorded announcements) were difficult to understand at times due to the accent."
Pros: "A quick, quiet and relaxing flight - no stress at all. The flight was uneventful. My carry on bag had to be stored in the bottom of the aircraft as the overhead lockers in the aircraft are small. As such - just before you board the aircraft, you place your carryon bag at the bottom of the steps and then when you get off at your destination, you collect your carry on bag at the bottom of the steps - no time wasted and worked easily."
Cons: "The English announcements were a little hard to hear/understand as the flight attendant read it so fast - but then again - it was a short flight - so every second counts :-)"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful and the flight arrived early, even though we left a little bit late - as such - I was very happy with the flight. The onboard entertainment system was wifi based and there was a USB charging port in the seat too - modern aircraft."
Cons: "I had no complaints - the flight was just what it should have been ie no issues"
Pros: "From checkin, to boarding, to the fly, to luggage collection - the staff were all friendly and helpful and the whole experience was without issue. The flight was comfortable, leaving a touch late and arriving 10 minutes early. I have no complaints at all and would be happy to fly Iberia Express again."
Cons: "If I had to find one thing that wasn't so good - it was the time it took for everyone to put their carry-on luggage in the overhead lockers although this is not the airline's issue but became their issue because it meant the boarding process took a while. As mentioned - only a minor issue."
Cons: "Fly on time"
Cons: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Ibéria offers a terrible service to its customers"
Cons: "Ibéria offers a terrible service to its customers"
Pros: "The aircraft comfort"
Cons: "Do the checking before not 15 min before the departure"
Pros: "The flight was good even puntual! However I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online."
Cons: "Awful online experience! I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online. it never works!"
Pros: "Spacious plane."
Pros: "To check in took so long . I could have used the automated check in but my code was not recognised. Travelling as a couple we were given separate seats .The staff did not even see fit to even tell us.Poor meals. the cabin crew looked harassed."
Cons: "Send emails reminders to offer web check in."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour due to inbound delay, causing a knock-on delay with plane maintenance. While fairly comfortably seated and offered water, this still was somewhat unpleasant especially after a long-haul from Havana"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "SEAT was not confortable"
Pros: "Al the devices provided"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."
Pros: "Speed of boarding and disembarking. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Slight delay"
Pros: "We arrived on time!"
Cons: "Checking in and dropping off luggage was a nightmare... There was no one at the check in desks indicated on the screens or the check in terminals. Eventually I found a desk at a different location that would take my bag. Boarding was chaotic, no lines, just a crowd blocking access. Even passengers with small children couldn't get through. Space between seats was minimal. Crew was ordering passengers to take headphones off during security demo. I understand it is important to be attentive, but ultimately you shouldn't be forced to."
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "There was no water in business class toilets. The staff are not polite."
Cons: "I can’t rate it is it left without us"
Cons: "The flight circling for 1 hour leaving our connecting flight cancelled and forcing us to stay in Madrid for 24 Hours and the Iberia staff being rude and unhelpful left us in the airport for 6 Hours before offering us a hotel and coming back the next day to do 2 flights instead of a direct flight"
Cons: "One of the cabin crew had a attitude problem, very much a bull in china shop. Very disappointed. She threw a pillow someone had dropped at the seat between my partner and I. Kept on bargain past me and kept on knocking my arm while I was seated"
Pros: "Was very lucky and had whole row of three seats to myself. Also time zone change so flight was only really 1 1/2 hours instead of 2 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Good, quick flight!"
Cons: "Being told that we could not bring cabin luggage on board with us when there were empty seats and luggage space around us."
Pros: "The attention, food and entertainment available on board"
Pros: "The screens on a dozen seats just failed a few hours in - engineering issue. And breakfast was a cold pretzel. Food gets let’s generous on BA all the time. The crew were lovely."
Cons: "A 2330 Flight ran significantly late with a passenger delay and then de-icing. The repeated assurances of “a 10 minute or so delay” were obviously not correct. Takeoff close to 0100 was followed by drinks AND then food - my vote would be neither. Please oh please just let us sleep."
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "food is expensive"
Pros: "Turist class is now low cost class too"
Cons: "Overall a very uncomfortable journey"
Cons: "Iberia lost one of our bags and also broke our stroller"
Cons: "Second time they lose my luggage. After 9 hours in the airport they were not able to put my luggage in the right place."
Pros: "Check-in was good, no queues. I arrived about four hours before scheduled departure time and check-in had been open already for an hour. In Mexico City Airport I had missed a flight three days earlier as I'd been observing the departure screens and they'd failed to update the status of my aircraft: this time I was informed of the gate at check-in. Flight was on time and didn't do anything scary. I was lucky as my neighbour found another free seat so left me with more room."
Cons: "I've found Iberia to be uncaring. This flight was much the same. The food and drink service was cheap, and I felt the attendants didn't feel like they had to try to give good service. The new entertainment screens kept coming on, and I kept turning them off as I wished to sleep. Eventually I discovered they were being triggered by the electrostatic charge on the pillows that I was rearranging."
Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Boarding process and pitiful legroom space . Iberia clearly loves showing the privileged few who have paid top dollars to be at the front , that we must be made to wait and struggle to get to our seats .Then, we have to squeeze into a tiny , pitiful space of a seat .....Even Ryanair does better !"
Pros: "That we at least got some water"
Cons: "The gate changes, the late start, bad or no info or help from front desk or onboard personnel regarding your connections"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Confusion at boarding gate with different groups being called with no clarity - overpriced for 1 way Trip"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Absolutely on time!"
Cons: "The boarding was slow"
Cons: "Slow service by the flight attendants; poorly stocked food options. perhaps it’s a European thing with budget airlines but to pay for water is unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "Late. Ineffective boarding - announcement said we would board by row, but actual boarding was by mass crowding, with no attempt by crew to improve matters. No recognition of dwindling baggage storage space meant that I had to cram my suitcase under the seat, and spend the 2.5 hour flight with my legs jammed against it."
Cons: "Delayed flight, no AC, no food service (even to purchase)"
Pros: "Missed flight as scheduled changed forward by half an hour and re-organising another flight was difficult. Had to fly from another airport in Spain and transfer was without assistance. Staff did a good job at sorting a solution. The return home on BA was excellent and very efficient."
Pros: "New aircraft, comfortable seats, and the best of all a friendly and welcoming crew. Love Iberia!"
Pros: "extremely kind personnel"
Cons: "the food was not like you would expect in Business Class, there was no pasta less although I was on raw 3!!!"
Cons: "Cramped by ok"
Pros: "Comfortable flights & on time"
Cons: "Service, flight crew seemed to busy chatting instead of serving."
Pros: "Flights were on time"

Cons: "I paid Xtraeconomy to have some snacks during the fly, and they end up coming with a trolley to pay! Disappointed!"
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."
Cons: "Easy checkin, friendly staff, nice quick flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food is miserable."
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: "Nice crew."
Cons: "We were waiting for a long time in the bus from the airport to the aircraft. Once we got to the plane, we were waiting inside the bus again."
Cons: "It was over an hour late with little information about why. The gate wasn't shared until the last minute. Boarding was awful and confusing. We were stuck sitting at the gate for a long time with no air and the crew didn't deserve the last ten rows any water. The luggage also took forever to get onto the belt. Overall bad"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Providing more drinks and beverages"
Pros: "Fairly new plane with clean/comfortable seats"
Cons: "Bus transportation to the plane was delayed. People were uncomfortable having to stand in the bus for so long. Then the flight was delayed for 15 minutes due to airport traffic. As the only business class passenger i would have expected to be offered a drink then or even a bottle of water at my seat"
Pros: "Boarding efficiency although the ... see below. Loved the salmon wrap and cheese 'n' biscuits"
Cons: "flight was delayed at check in and on the tarmac - 40 minutes. No explanation for this"
Pros: "Only the on board crew lived up to Tap's normal standard"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic in Copenhagen. Food very poor this time"
Pros: "Boarding in Lisbon well organized but delayed at check in and on the tarmac - 40 mins. Food on this flight good. Crew fine both flights."
Cons: "Both Tap flights delayed, little info'/explanation about this.Boarding in Copenhagen chaotic, problematic tickets holding up the queue with only one staff member. Food on board was so boring and unappetising."
Cons: "Baggage crew broke both our suitcases. Awful crew who was really rude to me when I was desperate for the toilet as seat belt sign was constantly on. Hot flight with hardly any air con"
Cons: "Wait time on buses from-to airplane to terminal was long."
Cons: "It cold be better if there is no flight delay which put in cause all our plans!..."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The boarding crew and gate staff where rude."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Long day. Did not inform you of what was going on. Changed gated not very clear."
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "Crew were amazing. Timely departure. Inflight meal was good."
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "No complaints. Good flight. And we were surprised to get a snack pack on such a short trip."
Cons: "Hand luggage weighing queue delayed flight, Gatwick flights delays, missing luggage at Lisbon,"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, a nice and relaxed flight and they gave out complimentary food and coffee which was brilliant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was out of their control"
Pros: "Better system to boarding."
Cons: "Announce properly for boarding."
Cons: "Gate location information delayed until last minute!"
Pros: "The plane was fairly new, clean, and comfortable seats."
Cons: "A better selection of the main meals in business class."
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: "The crew on both flights were despite the first flight being delayed by 2 hours."
Cons: "More communication with the passengers."
Pros: "Very on time, smooth take off and landing and friendly staff."
Cons: "Perhaps spirits offered other than just wine. And a vegetarian food option."

Cons: "Timing of food"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable the free drinks and food and crew were friendly."
Cons: "Can't think of anything!"
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."
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."
Cons: "3:30 hrs delay lost my convection no one to talk to or any help they gave me nothing I had to stay overnight at my expense n pay new ticket hotel food taxi etc nobody will help or respond for anything"
Pros: "Everything went according to the timetable, boarding was on-time and we even arrived a bit earlier than scheduled, so I can't really fault the service of the pilots, the cabin crew or the ground operations team. Food wasn't exactly stellar, but clearly a lot better than on most European flights operated by larger companies (Lufthansa, KLM, Air France etc.). The aircraft itself was clean and looked fairly new and well maintained"
Cons: "The seating was absolutely HORRENDOUS. Even though I'm nearly 6'3" (close to 1.90m), I generally never complain about seating space or legroom, even on low cost flights. This particular TAP aircraft, however, despite looking quite new, had some of the most cramped seating ever. Additionally, the trays were minuscule (you could barely place the entire food tray the service during the flight, let alone have another drink at the same time on the tray). Also, on the inbound flight (this was the return one), the seats were fitted with a very simple and clever tablet-holding mechanism, so you could easily watch something on your table while eating your food (from a similarly small tray table). The seat back pockets do not have any material/fabric on the sides, so stored items could easily slip out sideways from the pocket. Shame to have such a good in flight service and to be a punctual airline if you're going to carry your passengers cramped like cattle in seats 'rivalling' the ones on Ryanair flights on 4-hour long journeys."
Pros: "Everything was going well. Confotable seats lovely air hostesses. Food wasn’t so great but I was surprised we even got something!"
Cons: "Unfortunately I had problems at airport security which wasn’t very pleasant!"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Delayed transport to flight, tiny non-reclining seats. Food offering mediocre and had to flag down flight attendant just to get water they we're giving to everyone but some of us apparently."
Pros: "The flight crews were polite. The short flight journey included a simple light lunch with drink."
Cons: "The flight departure time was delayed for one hour."
Pros: "I travel for pleasure a lot and this was my first time flying TAP Portugal. I flew from LIS to MAD and the crew were overall more friendly and smiling than on US domestic flights. The plane was clean and bright. I did not notice if the seats recline. I will be using them for short flights throughout Europe when I return for visit."
Cons: "Flight was so short they rushed us eating the cookie and only water was served that I could tell. Also, TAP has their own boarding check-in wing of Lisbon airport. It was not clearly marked and Eropean arrows pointing up could mean to continue forward, as well as go to upper floors."
Pros: "Nothing, missed the connection"
Cons: "No flight to Faro during late arrival from"
Cons: "Bad experience with charged"
Cons: "Unruly boarding lines. Plane late .flight attendant less than friendly"
Pros: "everything was fine. nothing specifically wrong or bad."
Cons: "had the same food the third time this week. they could do more"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, your site said that I would not have a luggage charge, but I was charged 37 euros more when I checked in."
Cons: "Boarding took longer than expected. Flight was delayed then was delayed a second time once everyone was boarded. Smaller plane than the usual TAP planes, but okay flight."
Pros: "Everything from the custumer service, flight departure on time"
Cons: "Long waiting time for my connection flight but i booked it that way"
Pros: "No delays and much nicer staff than last time."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and legroom is very limited, specially when person in front of you recline the seat. Also, you feel the hard plastic in all your bones.. more cushions will be appreciated... Specially for an 8 hours flight."
Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"
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."
