Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything was excellent as per all my flights with Tap Portugal. The crew was outstanding, the plane was clean, food was tasty and overall a very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "The boarding area was too cramped and tight."
Pros: "Got where I was going safely and on time :). Decent leg room, food, comfortable seats."
Cons: "No sound in TV, and no way to adjust subtitle languages (that I could ding). Pretty long delay standing in line to board."
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. Seats on the international flight could have been a bit more comfortable. Entertainment was available and satisfying. The meals were good. Crew was nice."
Pros: "Flight crew were nice plane arrived safely"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you. I paid for extra leg room and then on way over made me pay to check bag (which was supposed to be free) and way back switched planes so never got extra room and had to pay for bag as well and now have to fight for my money back. I don’t like the feeling of having to always pay. If you want people to not carry on so much stop charging (especially on international flights) to check bags."
Pros: "Entertainment and seat space were great."
Cons: "They somehow managed to lose the entire flights luggage"
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..."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great."
Pros: "No delays and much nicer staff than last time."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and legroom is very limited, specially when person in front of you recline the seat. Also, you feel the hard plastic in all your bones.. more cushions will be appreciated... Specially for an 8 hours flight."
Cons: "TV didn't work. A female attendant made me store my hat but didn't make a male passenger."
Cons: "TAP Airlines stranded us in Lisbon. They were late flying us from Vienna to Lisbon and then canceled our seats on our connection to JFK. Instead, they rebooked us on the next day's flight a full 24 hours after, refusing to rebook us on earlier flights on other carriers. Their customer service was as bad as I've ever experienced. Multiple agents admitted their company is terrible and doesn't care about its customers. The indifference to our situation was surreal. Lesson learned."
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."
Cons: "Some delays at the airport but service is excellent."
Cons: "Seats, food, no internet, no wifi no USB outlet Besically it's old time flight"
Pros: "The food was good and there was a decent variety of things to watch."
Cons: "Having another TSA check at our gate at the last minute just because we were going to New York, the whole process made our boarding time late and our take off time pushed back even though they had 3 hrs to figure it out. The main flight stuardess in charge was rude and kept giving attitude to people when they asked questions because half the people on the flight didn't understand Portuguese. I wasn't allowed to pick my seat on the website so we ended up in a middle row. The person i was traveling with is over 6 ft and could not comfortably fit in the seats. Thankfully no one sat on the end so we were able to spread out between 3 seats. The entire experience made us not want to fly into Portugal again."
Pros: "The trip back home to NY from Lisbon was great, flight staff was attentive and courteous, the plane was clean, the entertainment made the time go by fast and the warm blanket and pillow provided a comfortable experience."
Cons: "Unfortunately my girlfriend is a celiac and we forgot to pre-order a gluten free meal, so she had little to no food options for her to eat. The sandwich offered right before landing could be made with gluten free bread or even a corn based tortilla."
Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight crew could have been more polite"
Pros: "The food dish was pretty good and there were many options for food."
Cons: "Space - there was zero and we weren't able to upgrade our seats. Big bummer on a long flight!! Also, our flight attendent would give us half full glasses of water... I didn't realize I needed to buy a few bottles of water before getting on the flight to be stocked. She sid this with all beverages. There was zero organization in the boarding process."
Pros: "The food and air conditioning"
Cons: "I purposely got a seat in the front row for extra leg room next to my two friends whose tickets I paid for. The TV in my seat was broken and I therefore could not at all watch TV unless I moved to another seat. I ended up not being able to sit with my friends for the entire seven-hour flight. The flight was delayed multiple times. The first time it was delayed because they were doing an extra security search by hand in the Gated area awaiting to board the plane. I have never seen this in my life and it was definitely started. Then we were on board the plane for almost an hour before they made an announcement that they found a broken part on the plane and had to switch planes. It was all very fishy. Quite frankly that I want my money back."
Cons: "The movies could have been better. Food was average."
Pros: "Seats were big and comfortable with lots of leg room."
Cons: "No entertainment on first 3 hr intra-Europe flight. Food was not good."
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant, extremely helpful and stylish (the airline's choice for attire is clean with great usage of Portugal's national colors). Thank you for the enjoyable ride home."
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."
Pros: "Great service on board, very attentive crew. Great food (Yes, it was good), modern aircraft."
Cons: "The boarding process at Terminal could be easier and simpler. They told us to set up lines way before the actual call."
Pros: "everything was great"
Cons: "they had some video problems early in the flight but had it fixed about a third into the flight"
Cons: "Flight left without us"
Pros: "There was one male steward who was not friendly at all.....I felt he was giving me bad looks....I felt uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew were iincredibly professional yet friendly Very human - at leat the flight attendant that took care of my area Enjoyed the dinner found my 11D seat to be very spacious!"
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."
Pros: "I had a flight from Madrid --> Lisbon airport with a final connection from Lisbon --> NYC JFK and we were delayed in Madrid therefore arriving at boarding time of our other flight in Lisbon. The crew was so professional and prepared that when we landed in Lisbon there was a bus that brought about 25 of us who were connecting with final destination to JFK to the closest door to go through passport control and board onto our flight to JFK that they held for a good 30-45 minutes until all of us made our connection. Very professional and organized. Much appreciated that I didn't miss my final connection! Love flying TAP and will continue to do so!"
Cons: "TAP is the worst. I"d rather walk than book a flight with them."
Pros: "Andrera Araijo was extremely friendly, attentive and energetic. She smiled through out the entire flight. Whether she was attending to me or a fellow passenger it was all smiles. She definitely made smile. God bless you Andrera!"
Pros: "decent selection of movies and the tablet was nice to watch them on"
Cons: "Despite booking a vegetarian meal none was available."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, seats recline nicely, the flight was not full so there was room to move. AC power under the seats, plus an USB charger in every seat"
Cons: "The seats, just were not comfortable enough for that long of a flight."
Cons: "attendant kept waking me up to put my seat belt on while i was sleeping"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in desk people in Lisbon were very obnoxious and rude."
Pros: "Clean planes. Reasonably comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding process with passport control in Lisbon seemed redundant. The transfer concourse doesn't allow access to VIP lounges."
Pros: "Incredible experience!!! Best airline ever I have flown on!!"
Cons: "Only complaint was group lines should have been established before boarding began. Everyone was in a large group before they told us where to line up and then it was too late But once we were on the plane it was an amazing flight experience!!! The comfort was unparalleled to other airlines I have flown on. Thank you so much!!!"
Pros: "The plane was clean. The blanket was unusually large, for a plane blanket, so u could be nice and warm. The food was good and varied. The staff was friendly and every time they spoke to you had a smile on their face, as if happy to see you:)"
Cons: "I cant think of anything. It's a long trip that can be tiresome. So you can tell the airline tries to make it as pleasant as possible ."
Pros: "Great planes. Very professional and helpful staff. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Lobster appetizer was dry, hard, and tough. Steak dinner was prepared nicely, but of medium- low quality meat. Announcements are not heard in headphones, which in emergency situations could be dangerous. Noise reducing headphones supplier are effective in the noise reduction function, but not high quality audio resolution, with some dialogue intelligible. Business class seat wasn't a full recline as are those of most competitors, but it was comfortable. I didn't see any snack offerings that most other airlines have available between meals."
Pros: "The captain and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "Upgrade the entertainment system."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. It hurt my back."
Pros: "Big space between seats. Best screen entertainment."
Cons: "Food was only average. Especially fish."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, pleasent stewardesses, good tv's/entertainment options."
Cons: "We flew out of Rome. Management at Rome airport told us their emplyee(s) were drunk! Unsafe flight! NEVER USE THIS AIRLINE- YOURE PUTTING YOUR LIFE AT RISK!"
Cons: "Being sat in a middle seat. With that being said, it was OK. No problems."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The help on board was extremely professional and polite. There was plenty of leg room and the bathrooms were fairly large too."
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: "Everything ran as expected or better. Great plane, crew, entertainment, and food. We will definitely fly TAP again."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for the first two hours"
Cons: "I was simply trying to relieve myself using the restroom in the back. I had held it in the entire time during take off but I desperately needed to go. The seatbelt sign stayed on for an eternity so I decided to get up to go when I felt it might be ok. Another gentleman also did so, he didn't get yelled at but I got an earful from the flight attendant and she assumed I didn't speak English because I couldn't respond while trying to hold my nladder."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in Montreal for about an hour."
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "Flight was more than hour delayed. When it hit the turbulence zone it was insanely scary. I know it's nobody's fault but leaves bad felling about the flight."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Cons: "Getting stuck at the boarding area for 6 hours in normal weather with no particular hazards for flying. Crew was good. They did their job."
Pros: "This time I didn't have to pick up my luggage in Toronto, it was lucky!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Had to rebook and was oven wrong information when I caked . Ended up paying for a new ticket"
Cons: "Flight was delayed again and again. Construction at Laguardia made leaving the airport a nightmare."
Cons: "delayed. no explanation for a long time. no agent at gate for alot of the time."
Cons: "Delayed as always"
Pros: "Les sièges étaient spacieux."
Cons: "2 vols chez Air Canada, 2 vols annulés !! Plus de 4 h d'attente à l'aéroport !! 1 vol en raison de la météo (no comment) et l'autre en raison d'un nettoyage à faire de la réserve de carburant... Dédommagement minime de 10$ pour s'acheter qch en attendant !! J'espère avoir plus en contactant le service client..."
Cons: "Gate change but no announcement"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. The delay was announced after we had boarded and sat in the plane. Not acceptable. For the delay all that was served was water after about an hour, and pretzels and soft drink after two hours. Not acceptable."
Pros: "Very kind crew, comfortable seats, good movies"
Cons: "I was never notified by text or email that the flight was delayed 2 hours! There was never an announcement made about options to standby for earlier flights. I had someone waiting for me at the airport for 3 hours! The flight home was very chaotic."
Pros: "We received generous vouchers, when our flight was delayed prior to its cancellation."
Cons: "The only disappointing thing about our flight was the cancellation without warning and explanation. We then had to work to get on a new flight as some of our party were not automatically re-booked."
Pros: "Movies for free, although the seat next to mine didn't work. Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Some of it was air canada, some of it was weather and some of it was the montreal airport. scheduled for 6:00 rescheduled 7:00 rescheduled 8:00 boarded 8:30 took off 10:00 1. air caanda - boarded the plane, then came on with announcement that we would be sitting on tarmac for an 1.5 hours. We were delayed for hour and half already, why load us and make us sit in a warm aircraft. Air Canada offered us 10.00 vouchers for dinner... problem was they did it so late nothing was open. It should have been done earlier. 2. weather - caused the initial problem in NYC, no fault of air canada. 3. Montreal airport - Our gates were switched 3 times during the delays. Which happens, however the gate changes started at one end of the airport, moved to the other end of the airport and back to the original end."
Cons: "flight was cancelled after being loaded and pulled away from the terminal. waited for over 2 hours on the tarp and then they said the crew had run out of time and could not fly. They took us off of the plane and did not rebook us. It took everyone over two hours to get rebooked for the next day or even two days later. They almost had a revolt on their hand since they did not have a representative talk to us until the passengers started yelling at them. Very poor customer service. Just horrible."
Pros: "Good legroom and entertainment options, on time. Enjoyable overall."
Cons: "Food showed British heritage -- stodgy, boring, overcooked. The bathrooms were dirty and out of supplies after a while."
Pros: "Seats are quite comfortable. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Suitcase costs money. Food was ok. No headphones for entertainment. I felt it was like a low cost flght but we paid a regular price."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "Plane was old"
Pros: "I don't like air canada"
Cons: "Check in crew was rude and awful. Flight cancelled without notification, thankfully the minute we noticed I called customer service. Waited an hour on hold before luckily grabbing 2 last seats on a flight going out the next morning."
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy.."
Cons: "Why have automated checkin and then still have to wait in massively long line to drop off your luggage. Do it like Jet Blue or Virgin or any of the other airlines.......you show up, auto check in, bag tags, separate line for smart efficient people to drop off their bags and get on with it. Its just so inefficient and puts a complete damper on the trip......maybe curbside checkin also."
Pros: "Flight was delayed from take off by ATC @ LGA for two hours, flight attendants served us with refreshments & free ear phones, meanwhile the Captain kept us completely updated on the delay"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The return seizing was great, also, with the check-in person ensuring I could sit alone."
Cons: "I still deplore that we are not given a glass of wine or a beer. Come on. Such a small gesture would make such a difference."
Pros: "Service was on time & staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight back, we had to wait on the airplane for a good hour before we could disembark. But that was due to heavy traffic at the airport and not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "The flight was no cancel because the weather"
Cons: "Waiting too much after landing in LGA"
Cons: "Lack of refreshment choice."
Cons: "Never again"
Cons: "Declined !!!! So long"
Pros: "that we landed safe"
Cons: "that the plane was delayed snd we were keept in side like sardines"
Cons: "Fact that when my flt was delayed it was too late notice and then when it got cancelled no communication. Poor customer service. ."
Pros: "Service on the plane was good"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and the plane took off an hour late due to boarding inefficiencies)"
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled the flght without notification. Sat in the airport from 10:45 in the morning until boarding call at 13:30! There were 8 cancelled flights to NYC because of Toronto return scheduling conflicts resulting from runway repair work. Air Canada customer service desk was horrible."
Cons: "Flight cancelled without ever receiving any notice -- I found out when I was in the security line. Waited 1.5 hours to talk to an agent. On standby for 7 hours. No food vouchers. Air Canada agents gave very little information, didn't care at all that they had cancelled dozens of flights."
Pros: "You fly a beautiful plane, the Boeing 787. Excellent entertainment, more comfortable seats, and just about everything on this plain was upgraded. It is a case study of how to do things right. The most impactful for me was air humidity. It was refreshing to fly and not feel like I've been in the Sahara desert at high noon. So, your starting point is really high, but you really need to look at your service."
Cons: "our flight was 40 minutes late in departing TLV. My connection in Toronto then was changed to a later flight, which was then delayed too by 50 minutes. all in all a 14 hour flight with connection ended up being close to 18 hours. My biggest two complaints about the flight itself is the food & the toilets. Your meals are the worst I've had in a major airline, and you should not serve customer frozen of close to frozen bread or sandwiches. If you are serving rolls, sandwiches or pitas, or bagels heat them up first. El-Al has been doing it for decades, go look at how they do it. But besides the bread/sandwiches issue, your meals are a really bad version of frozen supermarket meals. Just terrible all round. The other complaint is the bathroom. It was not cleaned frequently enough."
Pros: "Seats Comfortable. Drink service was effiicient."
Cons: "An hour to get a gate upon landing. Unacceptable. Crew did not push passengers to get luggage stowed. They did not seem very concerned about boarding efficiently. Cup size on drinks is stingy."
Cons: "Late flight No info given to passengers"
Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."
Pros: "My 55 min flight ended up taking nearly 3 hours since there were about 9 people that needed to gate check their bags. Air Canada needs to figure a better way to gauge the carryon situation. People had giant bags that just couldn't fit in the overhead. Also- there were far too many people with carry one. I paid to check my bag... then got stuck with my backpack under my feet and jacket in my lap for 2.5 hours as we sat on the runway."
Cons: "To be honest, nothing specific stands out. The whole ordeal was pretty much a nightmare. We were offered some pretzels and water while we sat on the runway for hours."
Cons: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Captain gave us regular updates"
Cons: "LGA closed for wind. We sat on taxi road for 2 hours. Crew could have served more than water while we waited. No AirCanada's fault but crew should have a plan to serve the snacks/ food if we are sitting for two hours and the total flight time is 1.5 hours."
Pros: "Air Canada is a first rate provider. Their air rates are better than most other airlines, and the value for the money is exceptional."
Cons: "The plane was SO, SO COLD. The entire plane of people were miserable. I literally shivered all the way from Toronto to Istanbul, huddled next to the stranger next to me, who was also freezing. It was unreal how cold it was. People kept asking the staff to turn the A/C down, to no avail. I couldn't wait to get off that flight."
Pros: "Free snacks , on board entertainment, friendly warm crew."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"
