Cons: "See literally everything above"
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: "good job rushing us to the correct gate"
Pros: "Crew did their utmost"
Cons: "Customer service said that I was confirmed on my new flight, after the snowstorm in NY caused a cancellation, and that I had a Kosher meal. Neither were true. Had to spend over an hour at the airport to get a seat and almost missed the flight. Something is wrong with the customer service."
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!!

The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."

Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"

Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "Airlines issue"

Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"

Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."

Pros: "It was great that there was a vegetarian food option for everyone; I forgot to call ahead to ensure that I got one"
Cons: "The TV screens on the seat backs were old; gave a fuzzy low-res picture. The audio in the headphones was never correctly left-right balanced. The controls for movie/audio playback were slow to respond and clunky."
Cons: "My girlfriend were scheduled to come back from Marrakech together (albeit on separate reservations), however KLM could not find her reservation in their system and would not let her on the plane. I had to leave her behind in Marrakech. KLM had the audacity to ask her to purchase another ticket, even though she clearly had a valid reservation (how else would she had gotten to Marrakech in the first place?). After arguing with KLM for many hours, they finally booked her on a flight the following day, but refused to put her up in a hotel for the night, or compensate her for the trouble. Completely irresponsible behaviour from KLM. Will never fly with them again."
Pros: "My seat..... No row in front of it. Crew were excellent. Friendly and professional Had a TVs show I've been wanting to see, Blackish, which we don't get in the Uk"
Cons: "Choice of films. I've seen a lot of them and the rest were awful Why do flights always serve chocolate biscuits, chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake? Strawberries,carrots and humous, grapes, olives, would make a nice alternative for example. Hot food boring, tasteless"
Pros: "Food is always good."
Cons: "Ran out of one of the options of the meal"
Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"
Pros: "The cabin crew was super patient and accommodating of the passengers."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Cons: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."

Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "MD planes are old and not very comfortable."
Pros: "Punctual, not crowded."
Cons: "Even though the plane was far from full, passengers were allowed only 1 carry-on item (no personal item), contrary to policy published online by Air France. This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."
Pros: "Food was excellent and crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not check in online before my flight and no zones to board just line up and go apparently."
Pros: "Crew was welcoming"
Cons: "Space between the seats was too small."
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Pros: "Short, lots of leg space"

Cons: "1) Front seat pocket bulging with 2 extra-thick in-flight magazines 2) No on-board wifi 3) Not much seating room - very thin"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "No issues, quick trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "Being able to have my meal at the airport before my flight so that I could sleep in comfort."
Pros: "That it was a night flight"
Cons: "No airconditioning, no food choice, no space."
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Cons: "Wheel chairs for my ill and aged parents was not provided"
Pros: "I like service of AF"
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Very small plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."
Pros: "Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding"
Cons: "Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment."
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
Pros: "Kind, courteous, attentive crew. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice."
Cons: "The temperature for this leg of the trip seemed very cold. I wore 2 sweaters & a jacket plus the blanket. Hard to rate entertainment (I wasn't aware of any)."
Pros: "normal flight"
Cons: "i would prefer little bit more comfort."
Pros: "I was too tired to stay awake so I slept most of the flight. The ground crew at the checking booth was kind enough to provide me with an aisle seat to accommodate my long legs, from which I suffer if I would sit in a middle seat."
Cons: "Nothing that I can remember, again I was too tired to stay awake."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
Cons: "2h delay for "crew reasons" TV had only 7 of the 22 channels with reception"
Pros: "The staff was amazing, they brought me a plate of fruit and cheese after Airfrance didn't pass on my meal request to the second leg of the flight (the attendant said this is ALWAYS an issue)."
Cons: "My seats reclining function was defective. My meal request wasn't passed on by Airfrance to the second leg of the flight. The entertainment system didn't work (on the whole plane, for the duration of the whole flight) - no movies and no shows. The wifi could have been offered for free to enable people to entertain themselves through computers and tablets, but was not done so. Instead we were reminded that it is available (for a price of course)."
Pros: "We propelled through space and arrived safely at our destination. Big like! :)"
Cons: "The vegan meal was a plate of dough. All bread. Other flights have given fruit, vegetables, vegan yogurt, etc. But that's a small complaint. The extra leg room seats at the exit aisles I was offered don't recline. (This wasn't true on the next flight). At 5 feet tall, given the option, I would pass up on the extra leg room and take a reclining seat. This is something that should be made very clear before the flight!"
Pros: "renovated cabin"
Cons: "delay, boarding somehow inefficient"
Pros: "The confort of the Business area, wide seat, spacious bathroom, great options of entertainment. The food is excellent."
Pros: "The crew was real nice and efficient"
Cons: "The food was dull and there wasn't any choice"
Cons: "Chair is bad. Entertainment did not switch to english. Earphones were bad/ Food was too small and some items had no taste."
Pros: "Roomy seats even in economy, food was decent"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "An average weight and height northern European does not fit into Air France."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Seats do not recline on this plane."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was in seat 35G. The space under the seat in front of me was very small, and it was nearly impossible to get to my bag when the person in front of me reclined. Also, the young boy sitting behind me was kicking the seat throughout most of the flight. Not your fault, but it was pretty crappy."
Cons: "The entertainment is very poor. The programs are not on demand and the screeen is old, small and very poor quality. The A330-200 I flew from Boston to Lisbon was excellent and had the new lie flat seats and on-demand entertainment. Big difference between the two airplanes."
Cons: "Paid thousands of dollars for this trip and my luggage is missing as tap Portugal convinently lost it."
Cons: "The flight was with some delay."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the plane was comfortable"
Cons: "Flight took off two hours late and we were not given frequent updates as to why the delay was taking longer than announced"
Pros: "Food was of good quality."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. A group of very rowdy passengers who showed zero consideration for their fellow passengers and whom the crew did little or nothing to restrain, other than confiscating a bottle of alcohol they carried on board."
Cons: "No vegan food options. Filthy toilet"
Pros: "Comfortable chairs with foot support., friendly staff, good food and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Had to check 2 of our luggages, and it cost $95 per piece. Never flown an airline where I had to pay more than $50 per piece. Also carryon has to be less than 8 kg. Our small luggage that we had to check never had any problems with any other airlines about being a carryon but since it was over 8 kg, it had to be checked. Took a 7.5 hour flight and the entertainment screen was not working for anyone, as the system was broken. Will not be flying with airline ever again."
Cons: "Crew was very sour faced, impolite and rude the whole time. Seats were way too packed"
Pros: "Entertainment was fine"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, my seat recline was messed up so the button didn't do anything, but if I leaned back it would too... Flight crew was also not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The 2 hour turned 3 hour delay. Lack of organizational during check in. Had to show our documents 4 times within 10 meters."
Cons: "Theo charge me a lot for my luggages I just try to call many times to tap for ask about the sports luggages and I never can reach then nobody ever answer the fone . They charge me 124 $ for my board and 90 dollars for my bag the total is 214 $ that’s almost the same price of the ticket ."
Pros: "I love flying TAP because I love having extended layovers in Lisbon. Lisbon itself, including the airport, is easy to navigate. The food is great and the culture and architecture is gorgeous. For shorter trips TAP doesn't have as many amenities as other airlines, but on this trip the typical video screens with movies, music, etc. was available."
Cons: "In this particular flight there was a male airline attendant who was fabulous and who could speak many languages, including German. I noticed the other airline attendants seemed to be giving him a really hard time and weren't friendly at all. In fact, I rang a bell to ask for attendant help at one point and no one came to help. I was just a seat back from the area where the helpful airline attendant was available. I think that overall TAP flight staff could be a bit more open to being friendly. However, on the ground in Lisbon I've found the staff to be amazingly helpful."
Cons: "The flight to NY was so cold that I had to wear my winter coat and hat the entire time and I was still cold."
Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight and I love the dinner they served! Would fly TAP again."
Pros: "I got to Lisbon on time."
Cons: "just another bus ride"
Cons: "I was told at the check in that my bags are NOT paid for...when I booked the tickets on line there was no mention of any additional charges, or option to purchase baggage"
Pros: "Nice plane, friendly and helpful staff... good service"
Pros: "Ice cream for snack."
Cons: "Flight from Oporto to Lisbon, when we landed they did not set up the ramp to exit the plane, I had requested mobility assistance. And the ramp was right next to the plane."
Pros: "Best all around airline I've been on!!!"
Cons: "Our flight was DCA to Boston then to Lisbon, with similar return. Our return flight into Boston arrived early enough to allow us to get an earlier flight home but TAP customer service wasn't open until after the earlier flight departed. Also, Jet Blue, the domestic carrier, could not change our flight because it was booked through TAP."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, plane was clean, smooth flying, takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took us 1 hour even though we had already checked in online. hard, and narrow seats, needs more legroom for international travel, armrest between my wife and I was very wide and wouldn't go up all the way making it extremely uncomfortable for us on a flight from Miami to Portugal. My wife's seat didn't recline because it was broken. And to top it all off they lost one of our luggage tags because the lady in Miami tagged the bag with somebody else's name and destination on it. Still waiting to hear if I'm going to have my luggage for one year anniversary vacation....!"
Pros: "Fast boarding. TAP crew was nice as always."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing cold, all 8 hours. There seems to be no balance for the cabin's temperature in these long flights. Make sure you have a jacket and a blanket."
Pros: "I asked if it were possible to change my seat at the gate and was promptly given a window seat. They were very pleasant and professional. Food was very good and movie choices excellent. Good customer service."
Cons: "The monitors did not work."
Cons: "They gave my 70-year old mother only a few hours notice that they were changing her one-stop four-hour 6AM flight into an 8AM multi stop 14-hour marathon. In fact, she was already asleep when they changed her flight, so she was already at the airport when she found out about the change. To do this to a 70-year old woman is reprehensible. Worse, after 2-hours with customer service, nobody there made any real attempt to remedy the situation or offer any compensation. Worst airline experience EVER."
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Pros: "Best flight I have had in years. We were treated like customers, meals were excelent, boarding process was well managed, flight crew was pleasant, curteous, attentive, I could go on & on. Other airlines would do themselves and the rest of us a favor by following their process."
Cons: "Website was a bit difficult to navigate and online boarding passes didn't open on my tablet, but I was greeted at the check in keoisk and guide thru the process in a friendly way."
Cons: "flight was delayed and sat on the run way for close to an hour."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. It hurt my back."
Pros: "Good planes! Entertainment is modern, food good, service great. Boarding fast, planeson time. Special thanks to TAP taking off from Boston on 12/29/16 with snow and even heavy snowing. I was lucky did hey stuck in Boston. The only weird part was that i was not able to pick seats without a fee even 24 hours prior flight."
Cons: "some chaos at boarding, with redundant passport control. Upon arrival, we were held for 45 min at JFK, as the gate wasn't ready and the crew had the engines running and fumes penetrated the cabin that made me almost sick. I guess that's not much of a TAP fault, but it was a bad finish of an otherwise uneventful flight..."
Pros: "The food from USA to Portugal wasnt great but coming back was amazing and FREE. As well as drinks (other airlines even 'high end' ones like Lufthansa charge you for water!) and head phones."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight other than it got me to my destination alive. Food was plane food."
Cons: "Small seats (what made it worse was being seated between two "plus sized" people), no leg room, there was a pointless foot rest that was uncomfortable and lessened the leg room when down and cut off knee room when up, TV monitors in the whole center seating section were full of static with very limited channels. Constant updates over the loud speaker by the pilot and stewardess got annoying; felt like every 20-30 minutes and saying the same thing, and saying it in 3 different laugages."
Cons: "Completely disorganized, delayed for over 12 hours and had to spend the night in the airport. Staff were not helpful and were not pleasant. Food was bad and there was no in flight entertainment. Would never fly with them again."
Cons: "They had no record of my order for a vegetarian meal. I was served some fish but it was terrible. I couldn't determine what the grainy side dish was."
Pros: "The crew.. Is the best"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, lack of entertainment"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Not really any entertainment"
Pros: "Movie selection, crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "Seats had more room than our other flights (think the plane might be a bit older.) Staff or board were efficient and friendly Food was better than on other flights."
Cons: "Asked for a wheelchair assist and it didn't show up. I went ahead, not realizing there would be a second security line after the first one and immigration. At that point, I had trouble walking. Staff their found a wheelchair for me. This may be more airport operations in Lisbon - but I bet TAP has a lot to do with that. Seat control for video and movies didn't work."
Pros: "The crew was charming, the flight was on time, navigation comfortable."
Pros: "Well, it went from Lisbon to Madrid."
Cons: "Slow boarding pass. Delay in take-off, delay in landing because there weren't chocks for the wheels. Extremely slow delivery of bags."
Pros: "The plane was new and spacious and the flight was very smooth. The 7 hours of the trip flew by. I will book again on TAP."
Cons: "Some of the food was difficult to identify. It would have been helpful if we had received a menu telling us what the dishes were. No one knew what the dessert was."
Pros: "Not sure if it was the US customs control, but boarding the plane took 2 hours, with a second security check and pat down and then a bus out to the plane by terminal 1 from terminal 2. Whole process of waiting and dealing with extra security dragged the boarding way longer than necessary. Rest of the flight was fine."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Depend in which plane you fly the entertainment could be very bad. Luck enough last flight i got a newer airplane with a good entertainment."
Pros: "I was really impressed with the food. I wish I had asked for a vegetarian meal though, since I don't eat meat"
Pros: "My dad needed a wheelchair service. All the crew were polite and helpful, and everything was very well-coordinated"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Not full flight"
Cons: "Norwegian nickle and dimes everything seats, foods, luggage entertainment non existent"
Pros: "We departed on time It was cheap to check a bag"
Cons: "No one in orly is here to communicate with passengers. Neither airline ground personnel nor airport staff"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, rude staff, had to pay for water, very hot on flight"
Pros: "The crew were very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no entertainment, have to pay for everything, arrived late, bathroom smelled like pee"
Pros: "All went well with no interference."
Cons: "The boarding and bad experience at the departing gate was unprecedented!!! I am a gold & platinum traveler, due to millions of mileage flown for over 40 years. This experience that I experienced at the departing gate was unprecedented, worse than the worse charter flight from a third world country decades ago!!! Apparently Transavia has "Sky Serv" employees doing their departing gate work, and they are the worse I have encountered in my life. Rude, irresponsible, talking back to customers when they dared ask them a question, not caring about anything let alone the comfort of the customers, or advising them of status of departure. As a result, they allowed a line to form for boarding, with all the relevant shoving and pushing, including older people standing and being pushed in line, as the Shy Serv employee went behind the departure desk and THE TIME OF DEPARTURE HAD COME, so it was natural for all to stand up in line thinking they will board, while the ARRIVING PLANE HAD NOT EVEN ARRIVED. And when I realized that (also in line) I asked the Sky Serv employee who appeared as the supervisor, why are they not telling the people that so they can sit down, the answer was "we didn't tell them to stand up"!!! When I told them that I thought it was just considerate to do that, he was joined in defence by his colleagues saying "no-one told you or anybody else to stand up, you and they did". As if this was not enough, when finally the plane came, people debarked, and plane was made ready to board, we were asked to board, only to stop us on the middle of the the boarding bridge and stand there for 15 minutes with no one to tell us anything, until a member of the plane crew came out to advise us of the delay and allow us to proceed to the plane. NEVER AGAIN WILL I FLY TRANSAVIA, or any airline that has "Sky Serv" as it's ground handlers!!!!"
Cons: "Free tea & coffee would be ideal"
Cons: "Arrivato con 43’ di ritardo da sommarsi 15’ per scala e autobus non presenti . Uno scandalo"
Pros: "The crew was personable. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Transavia delayed 1:30h the flight."

Pros: "Everyone was happy trip went great price aircraft clean crew nice!"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "no pre-checkin on my return flight"
Pros: "I was stranded in Budapest due to weather and was thrilled to find this flight for same day travel, a few hours later and have a decent price!"
Cons: "I liked it all!"
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Not even complimentary tap water offered. Horrific boarding method and rude staff shouting at people who were waiting patiently. Very likely they will take your carryon even if you comply with requirements, but after you go through the process of security, which is irritating. If they need space they should offer upon check in."
Pros: "Cheap. Gets you from one stop to the next."
Cons: "Took forever to check in. I know they were under strike at that time but then after waiting for so long and just making our flight, they sent my luggage to Seville Spain. It took 3 full days for me to get my luggage. I contacted via Facebook and email and basically just got the response of I have to wait until it arrives at the airport and the best advice they could give was to call the Seville airport. I mentioned multiple times in my email and message that I did not have phone service. I showed up to the airport everyday to see if it made it in finally it did on day 3. It wasn’t until 5 days later that they even contacted me to say it had arrived but I had already picked it up. Very disappointing."
Cons: "When I arrive to Orly Airport îm waiting 2 hours to the claim baggage for take my luggage, 2 hours late is very not normal..."
Pros: "That I could finally land in Madrid, actually a quick flight!"
Cons: "The delay in the flight, a mess at the time of boarding the plane, just terrible!"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking were poor"
Pros: "Terrible experience. From sub par USA style security lines to delays, poor boarding.... Gong show."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "We were sent to Kiwi booking to complete the ticket booking. Flight was canceled due to strike but we weren’t informed this till at the airport. This is likely because airline only has Kiwi contact info and never reached to us. Kiwi also didn’t inform us. We were stuck at airport for 6 hours trying to contact airline. Phone can’t be reached. We talked ied WhatsApp Facebook tweeter. All takes like one hour to get response. In the end flights can’t be rescheduled we had to book new flights ourselves and find hotel to stay. They won’t cover for hotel either. The flights refund is now funded to Kiwi which we also need to find time to argue with Kiwi to get back. DOnt know how long that may take. The overall experience has been terrible"
Cons: "Transavia should have more capacity to hold customers requests. The representative from Transavia at airport provide absolutely no help. Just told us to WhatsApp Transavia. If that’s the approach then more people should be there responding WhatsApp comments not like no response within one hour. Kiwi is of no help as well. If flights get canceled agents should provide us updates as well. When we contacted kiwi in the airport Kiwi even denied flight cancel."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Cons: "I did'' that we have to pay for have water to drink !"
Cons: "water is not complimentary"
Cons: "Poor attitude from ground service at the boarding gate"
Pros: "Quick boarding comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours and we were informed about the delay until 20 mins before boarding. The service was all round horrible"
Cons: "Awful customer service, no way to handle issues or problems. Their website had a glitch that didn't allow us to pay ahead of time for checked luggage. Calling them didn't help as the call center has no ability to change anything on your booking. At the kiosk they charged us double to check our bags because that's just how that works, even though their website ate our credit card information and didn't give us an ability to pay for luggage before check in online. The whole experience has made me decide to never use them ever again."
Pros: "Staff in the plane and food options"
Cons: "The major slowness and inefficiency to board and the major delays. Trapped in te plane when they would clearly know that the destination airport would not receive the plane late because of the airport space limitations."
Pros: "Lines and delays and shuttles and more delays."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and happy to ask any questions we had when not all announcements came through in English, so we couldn't quite understand them."
Cons: "The check in process was very slow and we spent almost an hour waiting in line. We boarded on time, but then sat on the plane for over an hour because of technical issues. I would rather wait in the airport during those issues, as there is more room to stretch and move about."
Pros: "Nice surprise. I like this airline"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, clean, good flight"
Cons: "Extremely late in boarding, unorganized approach to manage lineup or boarding process, take off was delayed."
Pros: "Good price. Flight was on time and fairly comfortable."
Cons: "You only get ONE carry-on! Not a carry -on and personal item which added extra to the actual cost of the flight."
Pros: "Offered to check carry ons for free to our end destination."
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "Very good value for the money. Flight was comfortable, i paid extra for extra leg room which worked out very well. Flight was on time and the staff was friendly. Major step up from Ryanair."
Pros: "Everything was as expected"
Pros: "On time. Quick boarding. Seats aren't as unreasonably tight as on other discount airlines. Nice overall. And VERY affordable"
Cons: "Crew are a bit surly. I generally avoid Air France for that reason. The. When I realized Transavia is owned by AF it made sense. Unhappy people; one particular stewardess nearly constantly rolling her eyes in some kind of disgust."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Bagages 10 kilo Nat enagf"
Pros: "The price and the employees."
Cons: "The long delays in both ways. Coincidence and bad luck? I don't know."
Pros: "Simplicity, slider in the website to chose the luggage weugth. Amazing !"
Pros: "I liked the way they handle overweight luggage, where you can buy a total amoutn kg divided over two suitcases. Was the best luggage system I've seen on any airline to date."
Cons: "The check in took forever and unfortunately the transavia system wasn't working, so check in had to be done manually, without computers. It delayed the flight over an hour."
Pros: "The fair was cheap, the flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "The boarding process is unorganized: first they scan boarding passes, then we board a bus, then we ride to another "terminal", then we have our passes scanned again, then we wait in a holding pen, then we are walked in a giant herd down the runway to board the plane"
