Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It was a quiet flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "comfortable seats. Flight duration was good. Layover was little longer. Overall good experience"
Pros: "The entertainment was really good. The movie options were good. It was really nice that the movies were free. The pilot did a nice controlled landing and take off"
Cons: "too many little children"
Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"
Cons: "Service was very poor. They missed servicing drinks when I was watching movie. Didn’t ask me. There was NO air freshener sprayed in this long flight. Overall service was very poor especially on my side of service at 32F."
Pros: "it was good, i like all the services from staff."
Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "Far too low temperature settings"
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "cabin crew's service - men far behind women esp.when serving food. Not up to the mark."
Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "No respect from other passengers, lots of kicking seats, pulling on seats, babies crying. I will not take an Emirates flight from Dubai to Chicago again. I will choose another airline."
Pros: "Great business class seats with lay flat seats, attentive staff, great drinks, wine, food, recent movies and lots of choices."
Cons: "No separate pre-boarding area for business and first class. Beginning of boarding wasn't announced"
Pros: "I left my kindle reader in the seatback in my flight to Dubai. They found it and returned it to me on my retum doback to Chicago 3 weeks later."
Cons: "Lactose free meal was disgusting."
Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"
Cons: "Not many old Bollywood movies to select from..."
Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"
Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."
Pros: "Loved the in-flight entertainment options. The food was excellent. They managed my gluten free options with ease and everything was delicious. The attendants were extremely pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I paid for the higher wifi bandwidth, but the service was spotty and some websites/social media wouldn't load. Even some texts wouldn't send. I wish there was more legroom between the seats for such a long flight. But the value for the overseas flight was still quite good."
Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"
Cons: "My screen was not very responsive to touch. Was challenging to navigate. I couldn't clearly hear the PA announcements"
Pros: "Hospitality and food"
Cons: "Seat assignment and boarding process"
Pros: "Crew were very competent and nice."
Cons: "There was not enough overhead space for my carryon bag, so had to go further back in the plane to find space, this caused a problem when disembarking."
Pros: "Good Price with on first priority"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"
Cons: "Usually I have enjoyed the food but the food on the return flight was not palatable."
Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."
Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."
Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"
Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."
Pros: "On time and cheap flight"
Pros: "I did not like the vegetarian food that was offered"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "food choices and entertainment options could be better"
Cons: "We specifically reserved AVM meal option and couldn't get that on flight. It appears that it was not only us but many passengers who reserved AVM meal option were complaining about not getting one. On 14 hours long flight not getting a good of your choice is bad."
Pros: "Flight was clean that's pretty much it."
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines this was the worst service."
Pros: "Excellent crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Restrooms needed cleaning And Boarding were unorganized"
Cons: "Seats were old and in row 44 & 45 would not reclineand others reclined too far."
Pros: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."
Pros: "good crew, prompt timing, good food"
Cons: "long transit in Dubai"
Cons: "Leg space is very little.. Rest rooms were messy after a while."
Cons: "Last minute surprise with re-routing to Chicago. Few options provided on Changed booking."
Pros: "I never took this fligh . I also hope I wasnt charged"
Pros: "Very helpful crew"
Cons: "I like almost every thing."
"Turkish airline is the best"
"Waiting to much .more then 2 hours for lagage in chicago airport"
Pros: "Flight was on time and flying even with COVID-19 restrictions"
Cons: "Food was cold and bland, sack meals both the same."
Pros: "plane was clean, bording went smoothly."
Cons: "Flight attendants were no where to be found most of the flight. They didnt walk up and down the aisles for literally hours before we saw them again. Never offered water during a 11 hour flight, they only came around deal meal service time. But the time in between meals, we seldom saw them."
Pros: "Not much really"
Cons: "Boarding, food, seat comfort. Essentially everything"
Cons: "At the Istanbul airport an item was taken from me for no reason. No regulation was shown for that item to be taken. I wasn’t comfortable with the way I was treated at the airport. The flight was very good"
Pros: "Overall is perfect"
Pros: "Service, food, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "I did not like anything from this trip. I just learned my lesson not to travel with turkish airlines ever again."
Cons: "flight was canceled from previous flight so we had to overnight in istambul and the whole situation was handled very poorly nobody took the time to explain to me what to do and mind this I was traveling with three year old and I found myself crying at midnight at the airport not knowing what to do."
Pros: "It was a great flight."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was a little warm"
Cons: "Boarding took longer time Than it should."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment choices Good, not excellent, food Comfortable seats"
Cons: "I think cleanliness is an issue both in the cabin and the lavatories"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "No entertainment. Late boarding."
Pros: "I have flown Turkish Air many times since 2010, and used to like the airline. Not so much anymore. I would say their entertainment center and food are pretty good."
Cons: "They used to have an affordable Economy Premium option, now all they have are seats made for someone 5’5” 150 pounds. Anyone over 6’ can and will suffer greatly. I’m 6’4” and fly many of their 12 hour flights from LAX to Istanbul and have to sit sideways, until my back aches so bad I have to turn. They also keep their planes unbearably hot, which I have no idea why, making the trip in that cramped seat horrible. Their in between meals snacks consist of cheese sandwiches, and the attendants never come around with drinks or snacks. I also fly Singapore Air and Emirates and their service is subperb!"
Cons: "Delay in boarding by 90 minutes; I think it was a power failure in the boarding gate...computers didn't work. No air conditioning either. Ugh"
Cons: "was unable to upgrade tickets in advance off of web site. Others in Greece and Italy tried to assist as well and found same and when calling 800 numbers the calls were not going thru or hold time was overly extreme. Was told at Athens check in to upgrade in Instanbul and to go to transfer desk to get upgrade. An upgrade of $1200.00 Euro's is extreme Being packed like sardines for a 10 plus hour flight is not good. It is also unhealthy. Turkish Airlines should consider something other then the 777 for any international flying."
Cons: "The crew on board was aloof, and somewhat rude. I was traveling with my 87 yr old mother and they did little to help, especially when we needed the restroom but they had the aisle blocked for most of the time, serving food. There was no way to get around to access the bathroom and the crew turned us away from the only available bathroom in the front. Really?! Not impressed at all. Also the flt was 30 minutes late making our connection tight. One of the young, gorgeous stewardesses was rude and dismissive of me when I asked about it."
Cons: "Departed over 1/2 hour late making it necessary to make a mad dash for the next gate for the following flight."
Pros: "Everything you want in an overnight international flight. Enjoyed the food."
Pros: "The meals and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The seating I needed more leg room"
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating crew, surprisingly great food, and nice drink options."
Cons: "AC is on initially, then it gets really hot and uncomfortable after the first meal service. i asked a CA if she could help, but the temperature didn't change. This was the pattern for all 4 flights I took recently. Everything else was great though!"
Cons: "Long lines and very slow"
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent on both flights light , fresh and tasty. The seats were very comfortable and the staff very helpful. I was very happy with Turkish airlines."
Cons: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."
Pros: "Free meal and drinkd"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we were not informed of what’s happening Too hot, air conditioning did not work"
Pros: "Superb entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight back from Dublin to Istanbul was awful, it was crowded, very warm, no air to breath."
Pros: "Comfortable seat. Food acceptable."
Cons: "Computers were down for more than 2 hours. I have a disability and I was told to seat and someone would come with a wheelchair when the problem would be solved. They completely forgot about me. When I saw that the people had boarded, I went to the counter asking for the wheelchair. They sent me to Egypt Air to request it. Of course Egypt Air said I was not their passenger, so I should request the chair to my airline. I tell the man from Egypt air to talk directly to his colleagues in Turkish Airways. He is angry and tells me he's doing me the favor of getting the chair even if it's not his job, so i should be very thankful. He requested the chair and sat me on it. Kept telling me I should be thankful to him, even if it wasn't his job. Turkish Airways never got the wheelchair for me and I have mobility problem but they tell me to get to another airline to get it! No entertainment originally in Spanish in any flights for Spanish speaking passengers."
Pros: "Great entertainment, crew, food, and organization. This was my first flight on Turkish Airlines and I would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "Clearing security was a nightmare. So many layers and lines to stay in, and the area wasn't air conditioned. Unfortunately, a handful of the passengers got "ripe" before the 10 hour flight to Chicago. Ugh."
Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."
Pros: "I was upgraded to buisnes class :)"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "Awesome service, comfy business cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul and Tel Aviv was chaotic, no business class boarding. Checking laptop in Istanbul was inconvenient. Lounge Istanbul was awesome however way too crowded to fully take advantage of it. Also should control people and what they takfor food. The lines were long and people would literally pile their plates with massive amounts of food, take it to their seat then leave it. Fix the lockers and add more, they are a wonderful asset but I was not able to take advantage of. Consider limiting access to manage crowds."
Pros: "Great : food. Entertainment , service . Check in, laguage accommodation."
Cons: "In All my flights with them it is Sssoooo hot!!! They save on A/C??? I asked to cool the cabine - they did for 15 min and back to heat again . Managing seat assignment is impossible if you book through a website other than theirs . They don't have an "economy comfort " option"
Pros: "Everyone did a great job handling the new ban of all large electronics. This new rule imposed by the US is completely ridiculous and rather illogical; however, Turkish Airlines did a great job of making it as minimally burdensome as possible."
Cons: "Splitting passengers up into male and female lines in order to be processed before boarding the flight seemed to create a lot of anxiety for passengers traveling with their significant others. I would advise figuring out a way to efficiently process groups without having to split them up by gender."
Pros: "Our flight from Zanzibar took off 40 minutes late and we made up no time in the air. We arrived at the Istanbul airport 20 minutes before our next flight was supposed to take off. Of course the gates were nowhere near each other so we ran as fast as we possibly could to catch our next flight. When we finally got to the gate, the employees were so kind to rush us through each step of security and get us to the door and there had to be at least 7 or 8 people who were working and doing whatever they could to get us on that flight. It meant so much! We had been up since 2am to catch our previous flight and just wanted to get home to our families and dogs! We were so grateful they worked so hard to get us on the plane!"
Cons: "Because we were late, we got what I'm guessing were the last two seats on the plane. The window seats in the last two rows. It was EXTREMELY tight back there. I'm just glad we were able to get on the plane but the comfort level was really not great and for a 10 hour flight, that stunk."
Pros: "The airline was very hospitable and efficient. All flights were on time, boarding and de-boarding were very quick and painless. Crew was extremely helpful and kind. Food was good, seats were comfortable, and entertainment was good. For the money and time spent on this flight we felt we got an extremely good deal and would take this airline again, and recommend."
Cons: "The planes were pretty warm/hot for most of our flights. I'm not sure if air condition was available, but I know some people asked. It did cool down eventually so they must have turned on air or fans, but I know the heat was on at some points which made it a bit uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew in the flight is amazing! Very attentive"
Cons: "The Tel Aviv airport check in is a nightmare!! We were there 3 hours ahead of our flight and the line would not move. Finally made it to the front 20 min before our flight!!! The people in the check in bags did not care if we missed our flight, was very rude and sloooooowwww!!! I have been to many airports and this is by far the worst! I had to run to my gate and ran into another check where they let me pass bc my flight was about to close! Made it 2 minutes before the bus left! Nightmare!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and courteous."
Cons: "I'm 2.05m tall, and had no leg room or an exit seat. These seats should be saved for these specific occassions, which made the flight uncomfortable."
Pros: "I would definitely fly on Turkish Air again. The seats were roomy in comparison to other airlines I have flown on. The inflight entertainment was excellent in comparison as well. I thought the food and beverages were pretty good for an airline as well."
Cons: "Just the concern that people were not instructed to stay seated until the airplane came to a complete halt. People were out of their seats and getting luggage out of the overhead bins well before the plane had taxied up to the gate. Please make an announcement to keep passengers safe. Also, the cabin crew could have been a little more helpful to passengers. They kind of stood around and did nothing when a gentleman and his child got on the airplane and other people were clearly sitting in his seats. The man had to straighten out the situation with the people who were in the wrong seats. The flight crew needed to have been assertive, ask politely for people's boarding passes and taken care of the conflict, not the customer. My flight was late and I missed my connection to Seattle. Turkish Air did put us up for the night and provided meals without a hassle."
Pros: "The Transfer desk granted our request to switch our flight from Istanbul to Chicago to Istanbul to Los Angeles. A meeting that I had initially scheduled in Chicago was cancelled and would have meant an extra day of travel and hotel stay. By allowing us to go directly to LAX we got home a day earlier and didn't have the hassle of going through customs, checking in & out of a hotel and going through another set of security checks with all our bags. Additionally, we had great service, food and entertainment. Especially liked the wifi that allowed me to read and send emails, texts and do some work."
Cons: "Even though they had at least an hour to transfer the bags from the Chicago flight and put it on the LAX flight, the bags didn't make it and they didn't find them for about 24 hours but did deliver them to our home at 1:45 AM (@37 hours after arriving)"
Pros: "Crew was top notch , food was great, loved the hot towels you get to freshen ourselves with, crew friendly and very patient. Loved that flight wasn't full and the three of us could spread out and be as comfy as possible."
Cons: "Very late 1.5 hours leaving JFK on way to Istanbul causing us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. Arriving almost 2.5 later in the evening."
Pros: "The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage. They couldnt track it l yet....maybe you can help or forward this message to the appropriate authority. It is extremely important to me :/ Thanks, I still like kayak :) -addam rhodes"
Cons: "See literally everything above"
Pros: "Things that I liked I expected - we take it for granted: crew must be polite, boarding - efficient, leg room is normal."
Cons: "Even in business class leg room is not ample, aircraft seems to be quite old, inside is well scoffed and scratched, my foot rest couldn't be raised or extended, no personal ventilation, temperature is interchangeably too hot or too cold, movie choice is far from awesome"
Cons: "I flew from Tel Aviv and upon arrival went through security so I could proceed to my departure gate. Then at the departure gate a whole new round of security. There was a priority line, but for some reason I didn't get in it, although I fly business. The line was not that long but it just did not move. And the a/c was not working. Worst boarding experience ever and I've been flying for over 40 years. When I boarded finally I asked if I could give a review and although they said yes- nothing. So I hope someone who cares sees this."
Pros: "At least there was a good selection of movies"
Cons: "The crew just couldn't get it right, half our section didn't get the hot towels before takeoff, the attendant had run out half way down the aisle then forgot to come back. Distribution of food was handled like it was the first time the crew was attempting it in a moving plane. They couldn't get orders right, handing out vegetarian dishes when non-veg dishes were requested. Running out of ice for the drinks."
Cons: "I was shocked when we landed in Ataturk and the sleeve was attached to the plane we had to get down to the ground from the middle of the sleeve. We were taken to the terminal by bus!! After the sleeve was already attached! I can understand when you are in some small airport or flying with low cost airline. But it's Turkish airlines in their home airport! Really disappointed."
Pros: "Add good airline to Atlanta to eu"
Cons: "I travelled in Business Class from Istanbul to Chicago. The service was not at all impressive and the crew were not very helpful. I asked for water and champagne with my dinner. Champagne never arrived, even after I asked for it again. My half-full glass of water was taken away halfway through dinner with no explanation and never replaced. I asked for water five times before I was finally brought a bottle of water over 30 minutes later when they were being passed around to everyone. Meanwhile, the two flight attendants I asked for water walked by several times picking up trash... not sure what was so difficult about bringing me a glass of water."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "If you are flying Turkish from the US or from Istanbul to the US or other far away destination, for the love of God, do not fly on the B777-300. Did that twice from Chicago to Istanbul and back, and the seats in economy are a real killer....very tight and uncomfortable. On the other hand, if you have a choice of Turkish aircrafts b777 vs AB330-300, you will do yourself a favor by selecting a flight on an AB330-300. Slighter smaller plane then the 777 but a little more comfortable in coach. So you are warned......and by the way, you will select a two seater combination rather than being stuck in the middle.....If you are stuck in the middle, always do your best to get at least an isle seat."
Cons: "Turkish Airbus 330-300 Loved a little more leg room in economy. Also the FA very really on their feet and eager to help. Always with a smile on their faces. I would recomand flying Turkish overseas but only on an AB 330-300 coach configuration."
"The price other than that the food was terrible and the staff was rough and unfriendly the comfort was poor not a pleasant experience."
"The price but the service was poor and the staff was very rough and unfriendly."
"Excellent service and value for the money."
Cons: "I cannot think of anything to improve except for serving more polish traditional foods."
Cons: "Everything is good! But the monitor on back not working very well lot of brakes when you watch a movie or listen music!"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Pros: "The crew was very profesional . Our fly was safe and on time."
Cons: "Maybe variety of good movie could be better ."
Pros: "New plane, comfortable seats, very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "There is no way to pre-order meals on LOT flights other than calling a Warsaw phone number. Other airlines allow this both during online check-in and at any other time as part of managing your booking."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Seat was very uncomfortable, crew was very busy and unprofessional, had to ask for a cup of tea 5 times never had it. Will never ever use LOT again."
Cons: "Improve customer servive"
Pros: "The price and route were convenient."
Cons: "Very little service from the crew. Lukewarm, almost cold coffee, no water over 10 hours. Terrible movie sound. Not much video selection. People in as aisles ALL the time. Ugh"
Pros: "Nothing!!! Horrible airline!! Will NEVER fly with them!!"
Cons: "Nothing!!! Horrible airline!! Will NEVER fly with them!!"
Cons: "Din’t be almost 4 hours late No explanation, no apology"
Cons: "2hrs delay. Family members did not sit together."
Cons: "My entertainment stopped working mid flight. There was someone sitting behind me who was heavier and I was asked not to let my seat back. I was provided no compensation for this discomfort."
Cons: "It should better boarding organization, and my flight was late because LOT was waiting for the passengers from different flights which made me nervous about catching my next flight. How could they keep us inside of airplane with temperature outside of 35 degree C one hour to wait for late passengers"
Pros: "Crew was nice!"
Cons: "It was an old plane"
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Business class seats are awful, as they are for all European flights. Regular seat with middle seat unoccupied. No entertainment at all (no movies, no music)"
Cons: "1- Tight seats for three big adults in a row of three seats especially for an 8 hour flight! 2- I don't eat pork. Most of the food was pork or mixed with pork even the salad! My options were very limited thus I wasn't well fed."
Cons: "Lines for checking in and for boarding were very disorganized and people were butting in front of people who were there longer. The plane seating was too close to each other. More room is needed."
Pros: "They had a good selection of movies."
Cons: "Food was terrible. If you’re flying to America, serve American style meals. I missed my connecting flight because we were delayed by 45 minutes but Polish Airlines didn’t provide a hotel voucher so I had to pay for a hotel out of pocket. Rude flight attendants and overall, very uncomfortable experience. I will pay the difference and fly SWISS next time."
Cons: "On Monday, May 21, payment was made for 2 suitcases in the amount of $47. At check in next day we were asked to pay and paid 40 Euro for 2 suitcases. We told them that we already paid, to no avail. We would like to have an explanation. According to LOT luggage policy we should not be paying for 1 suitcase per person at all.."
Pros: "Overall everything was good - I have travelled frequently with LOT in the past few months and this was perhaps the best experience so far. Boarding was easy enough - the flight was not fully booked so there wasn't the usual Central European pushing and anxiety during boarding. Flight crew are informative, cabin crew attentive and kind. Service and food were good."
Cons: "Comfort on these long haul flights is not expected in economy - the seat next to me was free which came in very useful as the person in front of me reclined almost immediately and kept throwing himself about in his seat in vain attempts to get comfortable - I was able to move over so I wasn't disturbed by his person. Why they have reclining seats is a mystery - it doesn't make it appreciably more comfortable for the person reclining and it reduces leg room for the person behind, makes it more difficult to watch the screen (despite the tilting feature) and means that the tray table is resting on your knees during meal times."
Pros: "Good selection of in-flight entertainment, relatively clean plane."
Cons: "Boarding at WAW was a joke - very disorganized and cramped gate area. Simple remedy is to give passengers guidance on where to line up for their assigned zone prior to boarding. No individual air ventilation - got hot and uncomfortable at times. Cramped economy seats - and if passenger in front of you fully reclines - your TV screen is almost in your lap. Hot meal included very rubbery chicken - obviously either overcooked or nuked too much. Attendants seemed indifferent or annoyed if you asked for individual attention outside of their normal rounds of serving drinks/etc (all I wanted was a Coke). I was essentially told to go to the back of the cabin and get my own drink... Upon arrival - de-planing took an eternity. We had a large group of teen band members traveling - who had scattered their instruments in overheads all around the plane. So anyone that was behind them had to wait until they figured out where all their stuff was stowed. OK - not necessarily LOT's fault - but again - a little thought and some hand's on guidance by the crew would have made it easier for the other passengers to get off the plane quicker after a 9 1/2 hour flight..."
Pros: "Flight was good. Warsaw is a well organized airport and easy for transit passengers to negotiate. Flight crew, staff were all helpful and approachable. The captain gave passengers relevant information and cabin crew did the same. Flight was problem free no turbulence no delays no just well run and well organized."
Cons: "Leg room - I know in economy you can't expect much but passengers are really cramped on the 787. 9 hours of sitting in a very restricted space with little opportunity to get up and about if you are hemmed in between two fellow passengers - and once the idiot in front of me had reclined his seat it became very uncomfortable. I don't frankly see why seats need to recline at all - it does not make it much more comfortable for those "reclining" and certainly makes it considerably worse for the person sitting behind. I also don't understand LOT's boarding process - it didn't make much difference but if you are assigned a ZONE 3 boarding number and it is never displayed and never called, what"s the point."
Pros: "The in-flight food service was perfectly fine. I also thought the entertainment options were of good quality. Perhaps a bit limited but there were movie options for a variety of tastes, including mine!"
Cons: "The seating was rather cramped. I'm 6'4 so I'm used to the lack of space however my neighbors on this flight were highly inconsiderate of all neighboring passengers. Rather than help with the situation the cabin crew seemed to take special delight in crashing into my knees. Combine that with a steady barrage of hip checks to my left shoulder and this was a bruising flight."
Pros: "Overall very good - no complaints. LOT is comparable with Lufthansa and KLM (the airlines I have most experience with) in terms of service and space. Boarding in Warsaw was chaotic - no announcements it just sort of started, I was in Zone 3 but there were only lines for Zones 1 and 2. The usual Central European pushing into the line. Flight was nice, smooth and good service. Leg room is limited but that is to be expected on any airline and flight. Would fly LOT again happily. On time, Captain made regular announcements. I arrived safely, as did my luggage. Can't wait for the direct service between Chicago and Budapest."
Pros: "Both flights I was on were somewhat empty, so I had an open seat next to me. Despite some delays taking off, the arrival was early. Good entertainment selection; personal TV screens and free headphones."
Cons: "Food options were limited and kind of gross, but no one expects fantastic food on airplanes."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "We were forced to pay for our checked bag and it felt like a scam. We even showed the staff the website where it said free 1st checked bag and they said we don't work for LOT we work for airport. Very scammy to me. Felt very unfair."
Cons: "When I handed over my boarding pass, I was told I had to walk seven gates away for an "extra security check." I am 71 years old and don't run well. I only object to the fact that they did not have the security check available at the boarding gate - or they might have called my name and sent me over there well before beginning boarding. They did assure me they would wait for me but I was the antepenultimate person to board the plane and quite upset by the whole thing."
Cons: "No space"
Pros: "Newer plane. More efficient boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system at all."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and due to the number of passangers, no attempt to change my seating was made."
Pros: "The staff serve nice"
Cons: "Chronic failure in flight schedules"
Pros: "All the rest"
Cons: "I bought economy ticket, yet I had to pay extra for my suitcase"
Pros: "I liked the food."
Cons: "There was a lot of passengers crowding the aisles making is very difficult to get around and the crew did not seem to do anything about it. The person in front of people up standing around a lot and even had her hand on my entertainment screen. She also did not seem to care if the seatbelt sign was on our not. The boarding was just chaos with little direction and of course everyone pushing to be first on the plane."
Cons: "The flight was late 1.5 hours missed connecting flight, spent all night at airport waiting for next plane,"
Pros: "Most of the crew was very pleasant and helpful. Food was decent, but much better on the return trip out of Poland. Thank YOU."
Cons: "The toilet lids need to be fixed so that they don't keep hitting you in the back. They do not stay up. Other passengers were talking about the same thing."
Pros: "The crew was nice and courteous. Many amenities to pass the time. Getting off the plane was quick and painless. Food was reasonable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour, which is fine, but no information was given to why and we started boarding at the updated takeoff time. The process of getting zones lined up and on the plane was a mess. They didn't communicate clearly about zones so every passenger got up and in line, lines weren't directed well, and people kept getting chastized for not knowing what was going on. Once we boarded the plane, we sat for an hour with no reasoning why we waited. When you already have a 9 hour flight, less time stuck in your seat is best. It was hard to understand the pilot when he spoke in English to know why we had delays and any updates while on the plane."
Pros: "New aircraft was nice, clean, up to date"
Cons: "Initially the entertainment system was not working. The crew was notified that screens are not working, so they rebooted it once. After some time, my and my daughters screens were still not working. We used call button to get crews attention. However, no one was paying attention to the lights. At some point there were 8 blue lights on throughout our cabin calling for assistance. I got attention by waving my hand and asking for help. I told 3 different times re my screen. They stated that they just rebooted the system and it will be working soon. My next seat neighbors were hour into their movies. No one did come back and check if I'm Ok if problem got resolved. Then they were even ignoring us and not offering drinks at this point. I felt like I got punished for asking for help. That's when I asked for crew person in charge. She was kind and offered to move to economy plus. We did move for majority of the flight. Enjoyed entertainment. However, when there was 1.5 h left of our trip, they woke us up and asked to move back to our seats since the meal plans are upgraded in this section. I was shocked, somewhat embarrassed to move back. I felt like a person that likes to cause trouble/ complainer being punished. Since we purchased full price ticket like everyone, we should be able to enjoy it like everyone. Airline should compensate clients, if there's issue with airplane. Flight to LT was good, however going home was extremely unnecessarily stressful. I'll try my best NOT to fly LOT in the future."
Cons: "Our return flight was with LOT Airlines, that is why we had to fly with them one more time! Never again! We boarded on time but then we waited for 30 minutes over the departure time, at the gate, inside the plane with no explanation. When finally the captain says 'boarding completed' aaand we wait another 30 minutes without explanation. Finally after one hour from our initial departure time we departed. In total 2 hours waiting in the plane, no water because it took the crew another hour to prepare to serve drinks! Flight was supposed to leave at 16:50, we got water around 19:00. Shame! Food is horrible, service is bad! We landed 2 hours later then we were supposed to. It seems that being late and not give explanations it's something that it's characteristic for polish airlines!"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant and attentive. Water was offered several additional times through the 9-hour flight, as well as the usual beverage cart. Good selection of movies"
Cons: "Very, very cramped seating. Extraordinary measures needed to even try to maneuver arms to try to eat. Food provided sustenance but no pleasure. Seriously, you should just serve pierogies and everyone would be happy. Desserts were actually quite tasty."
Pros: "Flowers in the bathrooms."
Cons: "Unhelpful crew, bad food, no complimentary wine."
Cons: "I fly 35 years at least 2 times a year to different companies. For the first time in the life of the company flew Lot (and the last) and was unpleasantly surprised: 1. The stewardesses did not hide their antipathy towards the native speakers of English and Russian (they were scornful and rude), although they were friendly and attentive to the passengers speaking Polish, 2. The food is tasteless and small (I have ordinary needs)."
Pros: "I traveled on this airline few years ago, and there was always room for improvement. This trip was a very pleasant surprise. Departures and arrivals were on time, excellent service, good entertainment aboard, and what a great, comfortable airplane (Dreamliner B 787)."
Pros: "A very nice experience"
Cons: "Again, the flight from Warsaw to Chicago in Jan 6 was much better than the other one from Chicago to Warsaw in Dec 27. That flight (Dec 27) I would rate as okey. Food was poor. Instead of meat there was a piece of conjunctive tissue which was impossible to cut or chew at all. Who made a decision to feed people in limited space with beans? I wish this person would seat among them for 8 hours to enjoy it fully."
Cons: "I needed to make an international call to Poland to order a special meal.There was no option to do it online. The special meal was served in a timely manner, however, the food seemed not natural."
Cons: "the economy class seats are torture for anyone of normal size. 10 hours with three 6-foot tall people crammed into a row was excruciating."
Cons: "Entertaining system was malfunctioning in a 12 hours flight!!"
Pros: "Very bad stuff"
Cons: "Better stuff helpful"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Bathrooms could be a little bit cleaner"
Cons: "Let passengers look out the window in the daytime. Going over Norway and Greenland with fantastic scenery and windows are blacked out whole trip. I paid to select a window seat. Totally depressing to be in the dark all day. Windows black even when lunch served. Tasteless Western food. Would have liked something Arab. (I’m a white American)"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Great food options. Super comfy fully reclining to bed seats. Very attentive flight crew."
Cons: "It's minor, but more up to date movies."
Pros: "Food was wonderful. Seats in Crown class were very comfortable. Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The supervisor and some of his crew were rude because I had a problem and they were not helping"
Cons: "The attendants only came around 2 times to offer drinks/water on a 12 hour flight. They only offered tea/coffee once. It was not offered after the main meal even. The attendants need to come around with water every few hours on such a long flight."
Pros: "Boarding was as enjoyable as possible."
Cons: "Other than delivering food and drink together, crew was generally not visible throughout flight. Trays of finished food and drink were left on passengers' trays an extremely long time. Trash was not picked up except twice during the flight (following the two meals)."
Pros: "Crew attentive, flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "More movie and TV show options. Also foot rest would have been nice."
Cons: "Didn't think of something because the flight was awesome."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, lots of leg room in the bulkhead area. I was able to sleep in spite of daytime travel because the crew kept the cabin low-lit. There were snacks and drinks available in the galley throughout the long flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very friendly, just “did the job”. The overhead lighting was focused on passengers’ heads, not on the lap area/tray table area where it’s needed. The bathrooms weren’t maintained during the flight—out of toilet paper, poop & urine on the seats, overflowing trash bins."
Cons: "I hd a very large person seating next to me. He should have been made to buy 2 seats. Very uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Cons: "Terrible food.. must need improvement"
Pros: "The seat on the Boeing 787 is the best. Decent legroom."
Cons: "The crew was never friendly or very accommodating - like it was a chore. Some cultural thing ?"
Pros: "flight was fairly empty, so very comfortable seating as nearby seats were not occupied."
Cons: "everything was fine -- now the departure and connection to another flight was NOT NEARLY AS SMOOTH !!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the handling of the plane by the pilots was good"
Cons: "While the plane was a Dreamliner, the quality of the seats, and the space in the seats didn't fit the the usual Dreamliner quality. The toilet facilities were terrible ... urine on the floors that made them sticky and horrifically stinky. Only two food service events during the 13 hours ... the first was OK, but the second was really sub par (a sandwich and a granola bar only)/.The available entertainment choices of movies were really lacking compared to other airlines. My first seat assignment had to be changed, because the man set to be sitting next to me began murmuring and cursing when he found out that I was to be next to him. My second seat assignment had me sitting in front of a man, who angrily refused to let me recline my seat at all, because it would crowd his leg space. Therefore I had to sit perfectly straight for all 13 hours of the flight. There were no other aisle seats for me to switch to. Most airlines offer eye shades and earplugs for the long haul flights. Not this one. Both were needed on this rather noise, chaotic flight. I guess you get what you pay for ... the cheap fare is not worth it. I don't intend to fly this airline again."
Pros: "Professional flight attendants, kept a good schedule of offering refreshments and meals. Such a difficult task to be attentive to a passenger list that probably spoke more than 10 languages. Polite and patient throughout."
Cons: "my bag was held in amman. when I was going through customs and my bag didn't appear, I approached a team member who already had my name on a list of people whose bags were delayed.. Would have saved me some time if they called the names of the passengers with delayed bags so we wouldn't be waiting for the bags to appear. I don't know if this is an issue specific to the flight crew or to the airline in general or to the airport but it did cause some grief on my end."
Pros: "nothing. there is no responsibility from voyama towards clients services"
Cons: "every thing"
Cons: "They only offer one main mean they used to offer to 2 main meals plus breakfast."
Pros: "Crew exceptionally nice"
Cons: "Can’t turn off the screen"
Cons: "Too many screaming babies and toilets that didn’t work along with the crew that didn’t care."
Pros: "Had a great seat"
Cons: "They didn’t offer basic beverages"
Cons: "Although we were traveling together, the airline seated us separately on both flights. Going from Chicago to Amman I was seated in seat 16A while my husband was placed on the other side of the airplane in seat 17K!! On the ride back, I was in seat 13A and my husband in 30C!!!!! Prior to check in and during check in, I was informed that I was not able to select our seats, and that we would just have to arrange seating ourselves once we were on the plane!! A week prior to leaving Amman my husband called rj and talked to a representative who changed our seats."
Cons: "I actually didn't fly QR. My RJ light from TLV to AMM was delayed by approx 2 hours. I asked to be taken off the flight in order to fly the day after from TLV to LCA and take QR. However the RJ gate agents explained that there are over 40 people on the flight that need to take the QR from AMM and that the ties between RJ and QR are very strong and the QR flight will wait the necessary 15 minutes. However, as we landed in AMM we saw the QR aircraft push back 5 minutes earlier than the scheduled departure. We got stuck in AMM and the RJ people were nice but totally inefficient and claimed that they were limited by their corporate procedures. I asked to be put on an Etihad flight that was scheduled to leave 2 hours later and that would put me at the end of the day in MAA (my destination) around 2.5 hours later which was acceptable in my eyes. The transfer desk agent said he is going to arrange it, disappeared for 45 minutes and then came and told me this is already too late for Etihad (it was not) and anyway they cannot let me take Etihad since they are not a part of "One World". I argued a bit and he said ok went to teh back office and disappeared for another 20 minutes. at that point he came and told me that all is taken care of and here is my new flight and proceeded to show me an itinerary which took me through BKK to MAA but the AMM-BKK flight will leave only at 0130 at night (this was around 1430) and get to BKK in the afternoon tomorrow. Then I will have to wait in the airport another 8-9 hours to fly to MAA. hence 2 nights without sleep staying at airports. BTW, I was the only Business/first passenger but this did not confer on me any special treatment. I refused to take this route and at the end asked them only to get me back to TLV and there I will change the whole route and go tomorrow on QR from LCA. I had to wait at AMM airport until 2100 and only now - 2300 - reached home which I left at 0600 this morning. BTW, i don't think that they restored my ticket to its original form (which was a full QR ticket covering also the RJ and Pegasus flights. but I was too tired to argue. I will postpone my trip by one more day and change the route to avoid another debacle like this one. Also, I chatted with the QR people in Amman, and ithey claim that they were not told that the RJ from TLV had 40 passengers connecting through them. This is the absolute opposite of what the RJ people claimed. Last, all his is without even mentioning the issues this delay caused since I have people who came specifically for this, waiting for me in MAA and God only knows when I will manage to get there and whether or not they will wait for me. Guys, you have to do something about this. I am quite a regular flyer and this is the worst experience I had."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Poor service. Rude and unprofessional staff. Not enough food or beverage service."
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "They offered drinks/water ONCE in the entire 13 hour trip. I was desperate for water about 6 hours in. I did purchase a bottle of water after I was through security at the Amman airport, but when I went to my gate, I couldnt take the water to the actual waiting area!"
Pros: "We left early and arrived early. Seats were more spacious than I expected for economy class. It was a short flight so there was no food service, just orange juice."
Cons: "The airline canceled my return flight without notice because I did not board an earlier connecting flight."
Cons: "When My luggage was searched at the gate of armman before fly back to Chicago, my camera was taken away by security person, he never returned to me. I only found out when I got home."
Pros: "There was more leg room than I'm used to and I got to watch Lego Batman"
Cons: "Seats were declined during take off and landing. Kids were running around everywhere, one even jumping into my leg, and one, get this, was running around as we were landing. At no point did anyone say "hey, be a parent and keep your kids in check." The staff seemed kind of lazy and annoyed Just generally a mess of inconsiderate people and the crew not doing their job."
Cons: "As I boarded the aircraft I snapped a photo of my seat. I was yelled at by the manager in front of at least 30 passengers, that it is not allowed to snap any photos on board. Clearly this is a made up rule as all social media accounts are blasted with peoples photos. As well- I work in aviation over 8 years and have never heard about this rule. The fact that he choice to stand on the other side of the aircraft and yell at me, instead of walking up to me and explain nicely was not acceptable. Later I’m the flight, I suggested to him that proper procedure is walking up to the person instead of yelling across, my just that he didn’t apologize, he even replied with a very nasty comment. And this was the flight manager. What I can say for sure, is: NEVER AGAIN FLYING ROYAL JORDANIAN!!!!"
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "Security was slow and repetitive. Additional screenings at multiple extra places. One guy checking ID for long lines. Seats were not as comfortable as some. People were rude on ground side. Not helpful. Entertainment was limited but ok. Ext"
Cons: "My daughter and I asked to move to have more room on the flt to change to a different row the flt was not full at all. The crew said they needed the last 2 rows for themselves which I understood until they pulled out all their bedding and lyed down to sleep each taking a full row. I have never seen this befor on my extensive travels. We were only offered fluids to drink 2 times with meals on a 12 hour flt from Jordan to Chicago. I thought this was poor service and not health for the passengers. My meal was the same both times with small amounts and poor quality. I noted it was much better on the way over along with the service. I assisted with a medical emergency on the flt being a emergency room nurse and I did feel the staff was great full I was able to help. I am sorry to say I will choose air France in the future."

Cons: "Could not check in online, had to get the boarding pass at the airport."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean."
Cons: "The food wasn't that good for me, the dessert was good. Not all the crew members were friendly with the passengers."

Pros: "Everything they are the best good with customers they love to help I Recommend to use this airline thank you so much you guys are the best"
Pros: "The head of crew Mr. Khatieb was very helpful when he learned that my mom has knee and back problem /surgery so he let my Mom sleep in the crew cabin last 2 hours of our flight on April 7th .2017"
Cons: "The check in crew in O'Hare airport (ladies) are bunch of liers .. RJ -Amman gave us 2 weeks ahead of flight oyr set seat K19 and H19 when we arrived 2.5 hr ahead of boarding they told me you have 2 saparet seats.. I told her that my Mom is sick and that I have already sets seat she told me I dont know this is what you have now then i asked for supervisor /another lier who told me that they have no seats and after waiting she gave us 2 seats by each other .. I told her my Mom had problem in her back n knee and I need 1st raw for her she said the dont have while when we boarded there was 1 empty seat in front of us whole flight ....they come from culture of friend and family comes first.. so they give and keep seats for their friend and family ...such a shame.. My Mom suffered from burning and nummbing the whole flight and arrived Amman sick .Will never choose RJ again ."
Pros: "Good service, leaving on time"
Pros: "Loved all of the kind smiling faces on all of the flight attendants"
Pros: "I loved the food - some of the best I've ever had in the air! There was a plentiful array of free movies and TV shows available for free. There was room to stretch out in the seats."
Cons: "I found the process of the layover in Amman to be confusing. Apparently, I could not get a free hotel for my layover. I tried to use the Crown Lounge as well but was told I could only use it (and pay to use it) during certain hours, which was confusing."
Pros: "Our own tvs. Service was friendly. The tint windows are pretty cool. It did create a quieter atmosphere."
Cons: "We were in the clear tunnel waiting to board and could see the luggage being checked by dog, next thing, the dog lifted his leg and peed on my luggage. I knew it was mine because it's a very bright lime green. Not happy about that. Everyone in the tunnel saw it too. Food was so so. The snack was a joke, a bun with cheese and one tiny slice of a cucumber. Would've rather had chips or pretzels or cookies."
Cons: "I didn't like my treatment in the airport by RJ staff. They had initially told me I would have a hotel to stay in during my layover, but upon my return trip, I was told that I could not get a hotel. They had a policy in place that stated since I could have taken a later flight, they wouldn't compensate my hotel... but I had never been told that, otherwise I would have made other arrangements. I had to be out of Iraq at a particular time, and leaving any later simply wasn't possible. The staff was uncaring, and unfriendly throughout the entire process."

Cons: "My wife and I paid for a better seat, (online) but when we boarded they told us that was impossible. They kept our money !!!"
Pros: "Good crew. No crying or screaming children is always good. Dinner was decent & nice that it comes with a glass of wine if you wish."
Cons: "Packed in a sardine can for 9 hours is not fun. Being bussed out to a remote location for a wide bodied plane is crazy. At least at ORD we had a gate."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Much more but with this price you can not expect much!"
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: "The terminal in Lisbon is poor. Poor food choices. Dirty bathrooms. And keep an eye on the change you get back, 2 out of 2 purchases they tried to shortchange me... one was for over 2 euros."

Pros: "Cod fish meal was nice! Lots of movie options, and the staff were nice."
Cons: "Foot rests would have been great to have. The boarding process was exhausting. A long line for another passport check (after the immigration check point) and the long bus ride to the aircraft."

Cons: "The flight should have been on time. I was very nervous about missing our connection, but lucky for us that plane was also very late!"
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."
Cons: "TAP was late getting the first flight out, offered almost no help and almost left 22 people stranded in Portugal and tried to get us to pay for a new flight at our own expense. Customer service was terrible. Multiple people in line said they had been stranded in Portugal by TAP airlines before."
Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "The headphone situation was confusing and no charging ports Fairly comfortable for an older plane"
Cons: "Hand luggage weighing queue delayed flight, Gatwick flights delays, missing luggage at Lisbon,"
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight due to the fact that the TAP crew leaving Barcelona said there was “fog” and therefore, nearly half of the flight had the same connecting flight to London. On top of it, they had no other flights and put us up in a hotel instead."
Pros: "Would appreciate a voucher for how bad the Flight was. Seriously UAL is using a plane last built in 2004? UAL only cares about taking people’s money not a wonderful flying experience!!!"

Pros: "Everything else"

Pros: "Great lie flat seat. Nice FAs."
Cons: "Food was not that great for intl C"
Pros: "Food was above average"
Cons: "Wasn't told that baggage wasn't included in my fee. Had to pay 170 Euros at the airport to check our two bags. Really really frustrating, and beyond an exorbitant price to charge for bags..."
Cons: "75 euros per bag on an international flight is robbery. I was also on my honeymoon, which I know shouldn't guarantee anything, but wow did it leave a bad impression, particularly when I hear stories of free upgrades all the time and I couldn't even get a free bag."
Cons: "Food is horrible and the airplane la are very old."
Pros: "Flight was only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Food and drink (esp. non-alcoholic) is terrible. Not offering a vegetarian option - even on short haul - is ridiculous in the 21st century."

Pros: "I got a sandwich. Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Late flight, and my life flashed before my eyes on the landing."
Pros: "Entertainment! Loved having such a wide selection of things to watch on the screen at my seat. Such a nice luxury to be able to watch a movie, a show, check the status of the flight/plane/distance/time/map, and more."
Cons: "The food wasn't that appetizing. It actually gave me upset stomach for the rest of the flight. I was in the bathroom 3x during the flight and I usually don't use the restroom more than once during any given flight. I didn't like that when asking for a drink of water, they only give a half full cup of room-temperature water. On an 8 hour flight, I get dehydrated and could drink 2 water bottles alone. I don't like to be a nuisance to the attendants so I only asked for water twice. I just wish they would provide small personal bottles per customer. I also have never flown on TAP before so I wasn't aware of anything like how to call an attendant using the touch-screen or even that watching movies was free. It should be said over the intercom at the beginning of the flight."
Cons: "easy flight,"
Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Pros: "The staff and no delays. Checking in , great customer services and she was vey efficient."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seats ."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight."
Cons: "Poor policy regarding musical instrument. Probably the only company asking to pay a special fee on hold or to buy an extra seat for a regular guitar. Ridiculous."
Cons: "I got food poisoning from the dinner that was served. The crew was very helpful though"
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: "Please see above."
