Cons: "The flights war 2 hours late and the boarding was totally disorganized."
Cons: "Fully booked flight. Very noisy"

Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well."
Pros: "Not much! Boarding was a nightmare, nobody knew which was the gate and actually they never put it up on the depatscreen. I felt like cattle!"
Cons: "Get organized! Let the passengers know the gate, board by zones instead of a cattle call 45min. before boarding and having to endure the pushing and shoving during this time. Getting in an airplane where people are trying to find a place for their belongings, not finding any and clogging the way."
Pros: "I missed the flight. Because they closed the check in counter 1 full hour before the departure time. I was standing in a passport control line for 40 minutes before that. I reached the check in counter 55 minutes before departure time. It was closed. The ticket office had no sympathy, refused to issue me a boarding pass. My flight was paid for and confirmed. There was time to get through security and reach the gate by boarding time. All i needed was the boarding pass and they would not give it. I missed the flight i had paid for and of course you won't give me a refund It caused serious problems with my trip. I'm totally disgusted and will never buy another ticket on this ariline."

Cons: "Too much of uncontrolled loud talk between passengers above 25 - 30 yrs old on either side of aisle at night 10 - 12 PM without even thinking that other passengers are around. Flight attendants could have been courteous by asking them to keep the noise low. My baggage did not arrive for 4 days in Cairo and no one was responding to calls and even went to airport twice . offices were closed during day time . Last day before leaving with the help of a travel agent I was lucky to get my luggage. There was almost a brawl at airport as people were unhappy because their baggage did not come from tel aviv to cairo. Very poor handling of delayed baggage. Not even a call from the airline. Not sure if it was offloaded in Tel Aviv or Athens."

Cons: "The flight kept being delayed and they jerked us around for several hours, updating the departure time three or four different times and changing the gate but not updating the board or consistently making announcements.

I want a full refund for our 3 tickets. Our names are Bernard , Judith and Max Levin. We were suppose to leave at 5:30 am and arrive at 7:30 am. Instead, we lost the entire day and did not arrive until late afternoon . This is not right what the airline did to us. I want a refund from our credit card."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Luggage was not included in the price of the ticket- had to pay $ 40.00 for each suitcase/bag."

Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."

Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in.

Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."

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."

"DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE! To start with, we were charged an extra $100 for our carry-on baggage apparently being overweight. This was not something we were told about prior to flying or we would have packed differently. During our layover in Portugal, we were delayed. Once they started to board, we got on the bus and drove out to the plane. Upon arriving at the plane, there were already two other busses there that had not even offloaded yet since they were apparently still servicing the plane. We had to stand in a crowded bus for about 45 minutes packed in like sardines. So much for social distancing and covid concerns! The plane itself was uncomfortable and the service terrible. I have flown across the Atlantic many many times on other airlines and have always received amazing service. This was not the case with TAP. Other than a small glass of water, we were only served drinks one time. There were no refills or additional service, which for a 9-hour flight is unheard of. I hated every minute of my time with TAP and will never fly with them again even if someone offered me a free ticket."
Pros: "Not much. Poor service, bad crew"
Cons: "Better service"
Pros: "Nice and friendly crew"
Cons: "TAP doesn't understand the first thing about customer service."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, seat spacing comfort not so much."
Cons: "Need to have seat upright to use trays to eat on flight"
Cons: "Snack at end of flight was good but lunch was not good and the dinner in Executive Class going over was not good"
Pros: "Kind staff. We were served a very healthy snack which was also delicious. Flight was delayed due to fog in Porto but oh well! No big problema."
Cons: "No delays."
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."
Cons: "So many delays, no real info provided. When we had to stay overnight they didn’t mention it would take 4 hours to get our bags which actually never came. Airline industry sucks and deltas one of the worst."
Cons: "Flight was so delayed we missed our connection."
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: "On time"
Pros: "The plane was fairly new, clean, and comfortable seats."
Cons: "A better selection of the main meals in business class."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive, there was a delay to boarding and departure but they were very apologetic about it. Service was attentive on the plane and bags promptly delivered at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "I upgraded at the airport to Executive class, which is really a bit of a scam to be honest. It’s just the first two rows of the plane and the middle seat kept free... the seats were no different to economy. Not worth the 109€ upgrade fee."
Pros: "Crew was caring and attentive to plane cleanliness. Smiling, friendly, yet, fully professional."
Cons: "Company plays games with attractive low fares but extra charges for seating and luggage"
Cons: "The moment to enter to the airplane needs to be more organized. The food served was terrible. No air conditioning during the time we were waiting inside the airplane."

Pros: "Food and staff"
Cons: "Two TAP flights today. Both flights delayed more than an hour."
Pros: "Liked connections and price. Nice crew."
Cons: "There was a hefty charge to reserve seats which wasn’t clearly mentioned on the Justfly website. Knee room was the tightest I’ve had on a commercial flight. The seats barely reclined which is important on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Punctuality, calm flight. I have been already too generous with my ratings, above!"
Cons: "To buy a ticket on their site is a mess! Never intuitive, a terrible maze! TAP´s president should be required to buy one ticket each morning... May be the site would improve. Got a ticket with seats “free of charge” on the printed e-ticket, but had to pay for them at checkin. It seems to be a scam... There would be more, but i lost my patience with TAP."

Pros: "Excellent Service - pleasant flight - comfortable seats"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"
Pros: "The head stewardess was so helpful and nice! I was traveling alone with a 3-month-old baby and was very stressed out. The head stewardess helped me so much, gave me a more comfortable seat, a private place to breastfeed and a bassinet for the baby! She was amazing and I owe her so much for making my experience better. I also received a baby gift package that had a much needed pacifier clip! The flight was also the smoothest flight I've ever had across the Atlantic!"
Cons: "No movie was shown on the shared TV in the first row. Had to only listen to music. Long stressful wait to board."

Cons: "Too early in the morning. A better connection in Lis wil lhelp"

Cons: "Showed up two hours early for flight. Forgot my passport and TAP refused to help us in any way possible. Ended up having to purchase two tickets through another airline. Will never travel with this airline again or recommend this airline."
Cons: "It wasn't at all the airline's fault, but this flight saw random searches at the gate of carry-on luggage + patdowns of selected passengers. I understand fully the imperatives for security, However it would be nice if there were some way to signal passengers that they might want to get to the gate early...... Fortunately I'd experienced it before (same flight out of Lisbon) and knew there was a good chance of a repeat...."
Pros: "My flight was punctual, the seats are comfortable, steady take off and landing"

Pros: "Nothing except that it got me safely to my destination"
Cons: "Food was terrible and there was a long human hair in my beef. Entertainment was one thing only, and it was in Hebrew with Hebrew subtitles. Bathroom was out of TP, not very clean.

Pros: "nice plane, cheery staff"

Cons: "Delay, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Seating atrocious. Considering there first. Was given row 40 then at boarding was moved to 55. 6 rows from back. As domeone who suffers epilepsy and cancer and other health issues it was unpleasant sitting amidst lots of noisy children. I asked hostess if there were two seats up front was told “absolutely not” during flight i went and sat at back on crews seat just to make it easier was told to get off not permitted. Then i gave up. I fly a lot for work but wont be flying Thai again. Sorry disappointing. Ps I told crew member anout health issues and she was not interested. So cheers."

Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Average entertainment."
Pros: "Crew and boarding and price"
Cons: "Charging got coffee is a bit much. NO foot room"
Pros: "the part I liked was that the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "other than the pilot doing his job, the experience of flying on this flight (operated by Arkia) wasn't up to any basic standards. this began when the boarding started - we were escorted to our busses which was to take us to the plane itself. however there was no bus. apparently the bus was right around the corner but its perfectly aligned stop near the doors was hindered by a truck that took about a third of the spot. so for some reason instead of simply allowing passengers to walk 3 meters, we had to stand in a small inclosed area for about 15 min with no seats for the older people. once we actually boarded it was chaos. people stuffed their luggage in the overheads in such a way that they didn't close, couldn't find their seats and we're stuck in the isle waiting for others to find a place for their luggage. this happens, sure, but there was no staff in sight to assist and instead they were on the microphone telling people to clear the isle and sit down, like we're on a bus... why not have people board the plane in groups and areas? the bus did two rounds of bringing people to the plane anyway, why not do this smartly and devide passengers into boarding groups, for our and the staffs ease? Finally everyone were in their seats and the plane took off. this is a very short flight of 45 min. and I understand it's a low cost company but during almost half of the flight you just hear the staff on the speakers reading out commercials, offering to buy cigarettes and whatever, telling how they have the best prices(!). finally we land, and instead of requesting everybody remain in their seats until the doors open, like the staff does on every single flight I've ever been on in my life, the guy on the mic says some stupid joke. TLDR : the whole flight felt like it was operated and staffed by teenagers, and not the responsible and bright kind. I am very happy we arrived safe because the staff made me doubt the pilots abilities as well. nothing to say about the passengers, they're israeli so anyone who has flown with them know what it feels like. just put your headphones in, it'll be over soon."
Cons: "The online check in wasn't available due to some problem on the website, and they separate my husband and me so we didn't sit together. That is very inconvenient."
Pros: "Not to much this time.fo"
Cons: "Did not liked the food.and the selection of the movies."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "The seats were so tight I felt claustrophobic and I'm only 5'4". The food was not very appetizing."
Pros: "The staff.. The timing"
Cons: "Had a non-reclining exit seat which was practically the same cost as a reclining non-exit seat. There were plenty of declining seats available....since I did not purchase them I was not allowed to move....they rather break my back ... So that is the last time am flying EL AL."
Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Pros: "the staff is nice and helpful, food was fine, boarding and fligh on time"
Pros: "I liked the landing that put me out from my misery of the awful experience"
Cons: "I will never fly with them again , 2 hours of security at 5 AM in israel ! And 2 and half hours of screening us in italy just because im a Jew and my wife is not , theu seperetaed us and ask us question to proof our 7 years of marriage for an hour and a half ! Then open our bags , and went throw item item for another hour , touching our underwear and dildos infront of everyone in the airport, hello!!!! Humiliation!!!! "Lucky" we came 3 hours before our flight , obvieslly had no time to shop at duty free. The food (blinches if you can call it food) was descusting! Nasty , took 1 bite and it was nasty , The airplain was old and was playing 1 movie in Hebrew, what the hell !!!"
Cons: "To small plan"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and inappropriate entertainment."
Cons: "Too noisy !!!"
Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Plane was pretty old and the seas didn't go back too much"
Cons: "No tv for every seat"
Pros: "It was FREEZING. I have never experienced. The like on any airline. It was like sitting in a refrigerator for five hours- made it a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Check in was inefficient. I was assigned a seat and I was flying with my mom and we asked to be placed together and they said we'd have to pay to sit together. Boarding started on time but then on the plane was a disaster. It took an inordinate amount of time to board and get everyone seated. I was sitting the back of the plane and there wasn't enough overhead cabin space for bags since they back areas were filled with other equipment. The seats were horribly uncomfortable - between by legs getting smashed because of non existent leg room and with the chair itself just being awful. The room was so inadequate that the person sitting next to me was basically in my space unintentionally. There was no entertainment for a 4 hour flight which was awful. It was overall one of the worst flying experiences."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Pros: "צוות הדיילים היה נהדר, סבלני, חייכן ומסייע"
Cons: "מערכת ההקרנה היתה מקולקלת. הסאוונדנלא מסונכרן עם הוידאו. לכן אי אפשר היה לצפות בסרט"
Pros: "All but the old jet. Very professional crew."
Cons: "Old Jet entertainment system"
Cons: "The check-in line and counters were not divided by flights, it was chaotic, and I almost missed my flight. The crowd was disrespectful and the staff not helpful. Only when it was clear that people would miss their flights, did a staff member help them to get through. I almost missed my flight, and had an unpleasant experience. I will make every effort to avoid flying with El Al"
Pros: "I dont normally complain and almost never give a negative review but to many things went wrong on my round trip flying elal. Firstly i took a backrow seat hopeing for some more space unfortunately the way the plain was set up there was an obstical behind my chair and i could recline there was no leg room and the seat was dirty i fell asleep and missed all the meals and the screen on my chair was broken so no entertainment. On the flight back i made sure to get a exit seat but i was aganist the window and the bottem of the plane door gave me less room than a normal seat the tray is stowed one the side of the seat and it was in a filthy compartments sorry guys i dont ever want to fly with you guys again 9 hours of this was just to much."
Pros: "Food was ok, cabin crew friendly, price is reasonable"
Cons: "1. Boarding was through the bus under the rain 2. Departure was delayed because bus driver couldn't get to the boarding position due to poor coordination with ground crew 3. Total flight delay was 1.5 hours (missed connection) 4. Some passenger announcements (including connection information) were made only in Hebrew (had to ask for English translation) 5. The only El Al lounge in TLV closes at night (even though no "business hours" posted) and you can't get there if you come early or have long connection in TLV 6. El Al ticketing desk in AMS refused to help with changing ticket caused by _delay of their flight_ and sent me to the connecting airline (I had single connecting ticket)"
Cons: "Took an hour to get stewardess's attention. Finally when did get attention, was told not during being served that someone would return after. No one ever did. Called over supervisor to notify that 6 of thirteen video channels had sound only, no picture. She said she would see what she could do. She left and never came back. There were 2 aggressive passengers on the flight that I saw and they got what they asked for. Is that what this airline would like to pride themselves in improving. Other issues too, but do not want to state a list of grievences. " Tired and disappointed.""
Pros: "Air hostesses very hospitable. Good movies, internet etc."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The light was out at my seat, & I couldn't read, & the staff said they couldn't fix it. There was no menu for the tv, & the majority of the movies were in French with Hebrew subtitles, unwatchable for this English-only person. This was a 15 hour flight. They fed us a tiny tasteless breakfast as soon as we got on & brought nothing around for seven hours! Just before they served dinner, I walked back to ask when they were serving & found they had tuna sandwiches in the galley, However, THEY NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT!!! I fly to Israel twice a year, & this was my first unpleasant trip with El-Al. I think I deserve compensation. Thank you. Harriet"
Pros: "Food was okay; make any diet"
Cons: "The worst part of this whole ordeal is that we paid for an El Al flight but were serviced by a completely different airline; very disappointing and deceptive. The airline "Prestige operated our flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv. The air plane and the crew were NOT el Al. The airline Prestige had an older aircraft with no TVs, entertainment for kids, the crew was not El Al for an overseas transatlantic flight VERY poor...on the return flight from Tel Aviv the same airline and aircraft operated by Prestige airlines was utilized and this time the ordeal turned into a nightmare. During take off from Tel Aviv as the plane was gaining speed to go into the air one of the tires blew and we almost had a catastrophe on the runway. We were on the runway for 2 hours and then deboarded; waited in TLV airport for 8 hours before taking flight on an actual El Al plane. The point that needs to be made is to verify that you are taking an actual EL Al plane NOT a partner airline....the airplanes on an actual El AL fight are accommodating and offer good service, food and entertainment (which is much needed on a transatlantic flight; especially if traveling with children)."
Pros: "The pilots were Israeli. The flight attendants were polite."
Cons: "Bathroom stank. Small airplane."
Cons: "I still haven't received any communication from swissair"
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."
Cons: "We had a late flight due to late arrival of the acft. Although it seems that the crew knew about the delay early, they still start boarding on time, therefore we waited for about an hour. Entertainment - there are no personal screens. The acft has a wifi based entertainment systems that requires having an App which we were not notified about on the ground so I couldn't use it for the flight. They are usually better ):"
Cons: "The attitude of ground staff"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The weather caused a delay which of course you can do nothing about that !"
Pros: "The crew on board was nice. The crew in the terminal however were not very pleasant."

Cons: "I have getting a bus from the plane to immigration. This seems to be the case at Zürich with Easy jet flights"
Pros: "Flight was quick and comfortable. Crew were excellent and friendly."
Cons: "Longest queue to check in I have ever seen in my life. Even though we arrived with hours to spare we ended up being rushed forward to check in, rushed through security having no time for breakfast as we had planned, onto a plane that then sat on the tarmac for two hours and when it got away no time for a warm meal on board."

Cons: "seats don't recline no entertainment very noisy fussy babies on board need ear jacks to drown out passenger noise (kids)"
Cons: "Overbooked flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the wide aisle was a bonus! I liked the magazine a lot. Overall it was an average flying experience, no problems."
Cons: "I didn't love taking a bus to and from the plane but maybe that is fairly standard in Europe. I wish there was wifi/USB plug on the plane or at least tvs. I didn't have any food or see any entertainment offered so I cannot speak to that! I am unclear on the baggage allowances for this airline and it seemed to be dependent on the employee you happened upon, but everyone was nice and professional."
Cons: "Horrible customer service."
Cons: "That we now have to pay for snacks, which were previously inclusive with the flight."
Pros: "Not a whole lot to be honest. Was an okay flight, attendants were good though"

Cons: "apparently easyjet sends wrong check-in instrucions to all passengers and so we had to shuttle between terminals, face extremely long queues etc. check-in took from arrival to arriving at the duty free lounge 1.5 hrs(!)"
Pros: "Price, friendly staff-"
Cons: "Super Strict luggage rules! Can't even have a purse as a second carry on!! So beware, the extra luggage fee was as much as th flight itself!!! But they were supper nice about it!!!"
Cons: "The whole thing that it takes off from the old terminal was just awful, every step took twice the time and eventually came running to the plane only to discover that it's going to be late in take off 1 hour late! It ruined my plans! There was no compensation and the flight was not cheap! I had to pay 50€ for the suitcase and 9€for food while for the same price two weeks ago I had a flight way and back with a different company for the same price including food and a suitcase. Never flying with easyjet again"
Pros: "Easy and smooth boarding, on time"
