Lufthansa IT meltdown prevented online check-in. Even though the US has just now allowed tourist visits to the States to resume, and Lufthansa is booked solid, they staffed only one third of their check-in counters to sort out all the ESTA and vaccination paperwork-related issues. Arrived two hours pre-boarding, lines around the terminal. Needless to say, they had me wait until I missed the flight (all my paperwork was in order, and I didn't have checked luggage). Berlin Flughafen, Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Lufthansa; it's sad to see what Germany has come to. Lufthansa has fallen far behind the industry benchmarks. Their inept IT, middling on-board product and inability to synch their systems with Star Alliance partners (I was on a United Codeshare) make them a poor choice for international travel. This trip will have been my last with them.
Prós: "Nada. Assento não reclinava"
Prós: "Tripulação muito solícita apesar de não entender o português."
Contras: "Avião quente e velho, comprar da ruim e foi servida muito tarde"
Prós: "Crew were good"
Contras: "Delayed departure resulting in missed connection. 2 hours in lineup and ‘service’ from Lufthansa. Rebooked through Zürich with overnight there - had to find own hotel as they said all the ones on their list were booked. Will not be using this airline for a long time ( they lost our luggage for 4 da"
Contras: "I don't know why all airlines don't have a more orderly system for boarding by zones (like Delta). Lufthansa and Swiss both just have a mob of people blocking the boarding area and hindering people who shoud actually be boarding to get through."
Prós: "Flight cancelled due to a technical problem, missed connecting flight."
Prós: "Nothing really of note. The plane was pretty basic and unexxceptional, but that was expected for the price."

Contras: "Monitor multimídia nos assentos"
Prós: "Do pequeno almoço"
Contras: "Os acentos"
Contras: "Giving economy seats with the middle seat empty does not make it business class. Very uncomfortable seats. No recline and very hard."
Prós: "Em ar foi bastante rápido."
Contras: "O voo atrasou. Não havia qualquer opção de entretenimento a bordo. A cadeira praticamente não desce."
Contras: "Infelizmente a Enonomy Premium que utilizei era próximo aos banheiros, então o voo todo teve muito movimento, não permitindo relaxar com o conforto esperado"
Contras: "The boarding gate has too little space and was chaos."
Prós: "A percepção de segurança e organização fornecem uma tranquilidade para a viagem"
Contras: "Serviço de bordo (Comida) e entretenimento podem ser substanciamento melhorados. A aeronave apresentou vários assentos com problema para reclinar indicando a necessidade de melhoria na manutenção da cabine."
Prós: "A comida e a disponbilidade da tripulação."
Contras: "O atraso de uma hora!"
Prós: "A disponibilidade da tripulação"
Contras: "Do atraso que já não permitiu, que durante a escala visitasse a cidade de Munique."
Prós: "The crew was very thoughtful. Again, a smooth descent into Dublin.-"
Prós: "The food and the smooth descend into Munich."
Contras: "The delay on embarking into the plane. Stayed on the bus, in from of the plane for about 15 minutes and I thought I was in an sauna. and on the departure was delay for about 15 minutes . The crew was OK but nothing out of the ordinary."
Prós: "Online check in, easy to board. Flight was on time."

Contras: "Da falta de atenção com os passageiros depois se um atraso que estavam na conexão, hotel longe transporte só depois de muito tempo de espera 3hs. Chegada ao hotel as 23 hs, jantar improvisado, café da manhã bizarro, servido na recepção pequena muitos tomaram café em pé, pão com manteiga e café puro..."
Contras: "The flight was delayed several times and we were kept waiting at the gate without knowing when exactly we will leave."
Prós: "Good crew, very polite. Good ambient temperature on the plane. Food was good."
Contras: "Paid WiFi didn’t work for half the flight. They should post a map with when it works (above which countries) as apparently it’s a licensing issue."
Contras: "Too high price tickey and had to buy luggage"
Contras: "O funcionário que nos atendeu em Beirute era mal educado. Sala VIP horrorosa. O banheiro era pior que o banheiro de uma rodoviária suja. Os assentos são apertados. Na verdade não são assentos de classe executiva. São assentos comuns, em que eles bloqueiam o assento do meio. Não tem banheiro privativo da classe executiva, o banheiro tinha fila o tempo todo. A comida era medíocre. Enfim, jamais pague um voo de executiva pela Lufthansa nessa rota."
Prós: "A EDUCAÇÃO DOS TRIPULANTES E COMISSÁRIOS."
Contras: "A POLTRONA MUITO ESTREITA"
Contras: "Comida e espaço da aeronave"
Prós: "Nenhuma anotação especial. Talvez apenas o registro do serviço correto da tripulação."
Contras: "A classe executiva nesse voo de Frankfurt para Beirute é uma piada. Pequena, apertada, pior que o assento conforto da gol, mas custa uma fortuna. Não vale a pena."
Contras: "Frankfurt Airport check lines too long. Only half of security checking stations opened. Hundreds waiting in line and the lines moved too slow. After passing the long lines of security checks, you come to passport checking stations. only 1 out of 3 available stations is manned. Again, lines too long and barely moving. Probably many missed their flights while waiting to go through passport checks. We lost almost 2 hours between security and passport checks. Airport personnel were unfriendly, they did show any care towards the hundreds that are herded like sheep in long lines. They could have eased this backlog of people by manning all their available stations but they did not. Will try not to go through this airport in the future."
Contras: "Not making my connection due to plane delay, poor boarding processes, long Lufthansa lines, and slow customer service. Couldn't make my connecting flight or the flight after that because they were over booked. Then was sent to Brussels with a 4 hour layover, and missed my Saturday interview at 4 pm. Then the Brussels Airlines flight was delayed. Never again."
Prós: "The cheese sandwich was good."
Contras: "Flight left late. Airport employees weren't helpful. The plane was hot."
Prós: "Business class for great price but I’m tall and not much extra legroom"
Prós: "Service was excellent. Late night flight was kept dark so we could rest - wonderful dinner menu, surprising for plane food."
Contras: "Flight was delayed so there was a bit of a chaos boarding but it has nothing to do with the service itself."
Contras: "Sem entretenimento a bordo"
Contras: "Demora na retirada de bagagens"
Contras: "I didn't fly with Lufthansa...n I didn't fly to Frankfurt..right now I'm in Zurich...Switzerland..."
Prós: "serviço muito atencioso. apesar de estar em acentos comuns, achei a Lufthansa mais confortável que a Swiss."
Prós: "The crew was nice"
Contras: "The boarding process and the fees"
Contras: "The gate was moved three times."
Contras: "It was a different way later flight"
Contras: "Having to wait 3 hours to catch the next plane. Also Frankfurt airport takes too long to get from one place to another- it’s a maze and there are too many slow checkpoints for connecting flights."
Contras: "Crew was nice, but big push to check-in carry-on. There was in fact plenty of room in overhead bin"
Prós: "Pontualidade do voo foi impressionante. Aterrisagem e decolagem ótimos."
Contras: "Tripulação muito seca, só servia bem quem estava no corredor. Passaram reto sem nos servir 3 vezes seguidas. Café da manhã ok, jantar péssimo."
Funcionários prestativos, bons filmes pra ver, boa comida também. A decolagem atrasou um pouco por conta da chuva, o que não foi culpa da companhia.

Prós: "The one glass of white wine I was served was delicious. Crew was friendly. Food was surprisingly elaborate for a short flight."
Contras: "Boarding process a bit chaotic. The process started before they were ready to let us on the plane. My special meal was forgotten until after meal service. They skipped our row for beverage service and there was nothing served prior to the meal."

Prós: "Self checkin, there was no line and things moved quickly."
Contras: "Flight was almost an hour late because the boarding process was so slow. They took forever and then literally bussed us to the other side of the airport to the budget carrier side, which wasted more time. Was a bit of a joke really. Served seafood snack, not everyone eats seafood."

Contras: "Atraso de 3h e meia, isto não é normal!"
Prós: "On time!"
Contras: "That I had to pay for my check in bag on my return trip. Was told the ticket I booked didn't include check in bags. Whan my trip going to Portugal on Azores Airlines did. Someone shout step in and change this practice. Very confusing for the traveler"
Contras: "Atrasado como sempre... uma vergonha"
Prós: "Simpatia da tripulação"
Contras: "Estava frio demais dentro do avião!"
Prós: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Prós: "Gosto muito do fato da TAP ter vôos diretos à Lisboa e Porto. É uma viagem longa e cansativa, portanto quanto mais rápido chegar melhor. Os tripulantes são muito atenciosos e sempre dispostos à ajudar."
Contras: "Como em qualquer companhia aérea de hoje, o espaço para as pernas e o conforto da cadeira. Numa viagem de aproximadamente 10 h ao fim não temos mais posição que não doa as costas."
Como sempre, a ryanair cumprir com os horários estabelecidos
Contras: "Água poderia ser mais barata."
Contras: "Correu bem, e na normalidade."
Contras: "4 horas de atraso."
Prós: "Pontualidade e tripulação atenciosa"
Prós: "Terrible crew rude and impolite"
Prós: "O voo em si foi ótimo. O trajeto e comissários tranquilos"
Contras: "Teve atraso e troca de gate antes do voo. Então a poderia seguir com mais pontualidade. E um atrativo seria um agrado aos passageiros. Como um petisco e suco , por exemplo! No mais. Tudo correu bem!"
Contras: "Direct boarding."
Prós: "The crew was efficient in everything it did."
Contras: "THe seats are cramped and we spent the entire two hour flight listening to the flight crew trying to sell: alcohol, cigarettes, scratch off tickets, and duty free items. I’m not taking a plane to go shopping, and the fact that we were asked to buy 4 different types of items in 2 hours was excessive."
Prós: "Nothing. Everything was very bad."
Contras: "Bad line to check in. Bad line to get in the plane. 1h15 waiting inside the plane with no answer about hour to take off. No are condition in the plane. Cabin crew with no attention. Late to get out the plane. Late to claim the luggage. And, after 30 years traveling, first time I have a bottle broken"
Prós: "De nada nunca mais viajo c essa empresa, cheguei c 3 horas de antecedência no aeroporto e me fizeram pagar uma taxa de 55 euros absurdo, na volta atrasou muito, pessoas maleducadas"
Prós: "Sim, a tripulação excelente"
Contras: "Correu tudo bem"
Contras: "O tempo de espera no aeroporto para embarcar. Cerca de 1 hora."
Contras: "Informações sobre o voo e faixas para checkin no balcão mais barata !"
Contras: "Para além de estarmos dentro de umas gaiolas em pé, quase uma hora sem sequer nos dizer nada, fomos a pé debaixo de chuva até ao avião. Crianças e bebês a serem forçados a ir debaixo de chuva. Entretanto chegamos ao avião e não tivemos autorização para entrar, ficando debaixo de chuva... enfim. Depois disso, quando aterramos não tivemos autorização de sair porque o Hospedeiro de Bordô chamou a polícia para acompanhar um dos passageiros. E para variar... Tivemos de permanecer sentados em espera para podermos sentir. Enfim. No mínimo ridículo."
Contras: "Houve um atraso e não avisaram. Ficámos em pé imenso tempo para embarcar como se o voo estivesse a horas."
Prós: "Gostei da tranquilidade do voo"

Contras: "Instruções de embarque mais clara entre prioritário / não prioritário."
Contras: "O aeroporto. Tudo muito longe."
Prós: "The flight was excellent, crew very friendly and available."
Contras: "At the time of boarding the person who was checking the boarding pass was extremely thick checking the luggage, I think the app should explain better about the purchase of luggage (which sizes include the purchase)."
Contras: "Priority line...."
Contras: "Priority line....."
Contras: "Perdi todas as minhas conexões"
Contras: "O embarque é sempre muito ruim."
Prós: "A experiência no embarque foi PÉSSIMA, com a companhia RYANAIR, rnão desejo relatar nada do que tenha gostado."
Contras: "A companhia RYANAIR, não deixa claro a política de bagagens e na hora do embarque cobra por valores não informados antecipadamente."
Prós: "A educação dos tripulantes."
Contras: "Kayak did not forward me bookin confirmation and I paid extra 60€ At Ryanair no customer service desk. Nearly missed flt. Never again w Ryanair"
Contras: "Sitema de check in pelo celular muito confuso, acusando erro de senha varias vezes e o código de barras tinha que ser salvo em PDF para poder ampliar na hora de entrar."
Prós: "Gostei da experiência pois agora sei que não voarei mais com a companhia."
Contras: "Detestei o atraso de 1h20min, não gostei dos atendentes e nem da falta de profissionalismo. péssima empresa, não recomendo a ninguem. pouco espaço entre as poltronas, confusão e falta de respeito no embarque, sem contar que trocaram o portão de embarque 3 vezes e a região do portão 1 vez, de S para U, tudo isso de ultima hora e sem comunicação no alto falante do aeroporto."
Prós: "Gostei que a experiência chegou ao fim e serviu para nunca mais voar com a empresa."
Contras: "Detestei tudo, me fizeram pagar novamente a mala para despachar, pois falaram que as 2 malas extras que comprei estavam indicadas para a ida da viagem e não uma para ida e uma para volta. O voo atrasou 2h40min e ficaram dando desculpas de todas as formas possíveis. Ficamos parados dentro do avião por 1 hora até conseguir finalmente sair do chão. Pouco espaço para as pernas. Te obrigam a pagar para escolher onde quer sentar (se tiver em mais que 1 pessoa, na hora que fizer o check in te colocam de proposito um na frente do avião e outro no fundo, para que voce pague para trocar de lugar). No balcão de informações da empresa eles não conseguem resolver nada e se livram do problema que qualquer reclamação deve ser feita no destino final."
Prós: "Chegou antes da hora. 20 min adiantado"
Prós: "Reasonably priced. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was easy"
Contras: "Seats are very cramped and uncomfortable. I’m 179cm and it’s a tight enough squeeze for in the seats."
Prós: "The flight itself was quick and crew members were professional."
Contras: "We weren't informed of flight delays until arriving at the airport. No information was provided on departure time until after waiting almost 2 hours. Ryanair staff at the airport made announcements exclusively in Spanish, without providing an English translation."
Prós: "We actually made it"
Contras: "The 3hr delay with no explanation or any information whilst waiting in the airport."
Contras: "The gate for boarding was supposed to close at 1205pm but they didn’t announce the gate until 11:30am. The flight was supposed to take off at 12:35pm but there was no announcement of delay, all of the attendants said that everything was on schedule, yet boarding didn’t even start until 1230pm. They randomly took people out of line and told them their bags were too big and made them pay 50 euro, even though their bags still went in the same hold and they were no bigger than anyone else’s when later compared. It was an international flight and multiple people didn’t even have to show their passports. Then on the plane we sat on the runway for about another hour and didn’t takeoff until 1:40pm. The take off was one of the worst I’ve ever experienced. The seats were basically lawn chairs glued to the ground and the aisles aren’t large enough for the crew so they were constantly bumping everyone in the aisle seats. The landing felt like the plane was going to flip over and crash and then on top of everything we were told that Ryanair didn’t have enough employees to take our luggage off of the plane."
Contras: "We were charged an additional $70 per person to have our boarding passes printed at the airport. After waiting 40 minutes in line to check in, we were made to go to another office to get boarding passes. Even though we arrived 3 hours before the flight, we barely made it. Ryanair tries to put as many obstacles and charges in your way before you fly. You have no recourse as you would miss your flight if you don’t pay the extra charges. During the flight, the whole purpose of the crew is to sell duty free goods. This airline is the worst! I’d pay more to another airline, just to avoid Ryanair."
Prós: "I got to my destination"
Contras: "If they don’t speak good English and have heavy accents, why don’t they slow down the announcements, so people have at least a small chance to understand???"
Contras: "Boarding commenced after the given departure time with no sign of a delay on the departure boards. There was no clear guidance for queuing, so the speedy boarding we paid extra for was close to useless, staff then scanned boarding passes without a care for passports. Once on the plane the flight was delayed for 2 hours and only after 45 mins of sitting around waiting for an explanation were we given one by the captain."
Prós: "Nice and cheap."
Contras: "The window was in the wrong place so I got a bad neck trying to look out."
Prós: "We started boarding much earlier than the time on the ticket, but still left on time."
Contras: "The pilots landed in the wrong terminal (it was a domestic Spanish flight but we landed with international flights), so we all had to wait in the airport together without receiving any information for about 20 minutes. The woman working at the airport was very calm and helped us understand the mistake. We are lucky that we didn’t have a connection. I don’t understand how this could happen."
Contras: "do tempo de espera"
Contras: "I didn’t know that I had to pay and extra £15 just to get a seat! I thought I already paid enough for my ticket ."
Prós: "The flight was short"
Contras: "A plenty of offering thing to buy"
Prós: "I liked that we landed safely and could go about our day, putting this experience behind me, after only an hour delay."
Contras: "Checking in at the Marrakech airport was a nightmare. People had to guess where to line up. There were two lines. A woman working with passengers seemed efficient and friendly. Unfortunately, I was not in her line. The dude who "helped" me hated the world and everyone in front of him. Their computers were down, and he had to hand write the boarding passes (?!). He really resented doing this for people and let them know. Once at the gate we had to get in a line, to get in another line outside, to get in another line to board, and of course we sat on the tarmac due to delays. I had to check a bag at the gate for being slightly too big. That's fine. But really, I end up paying what I would for a more professional (not "low-fare") airline. No one wants to be here. Not the employees, and not the passengers."
Prós: "Professional, friendly crew. Good food."
Contras: "No in flight entertainment - SATA app, WiFi did not work."
Prós: "Clean plane and friendly crew. Excellent landing."
Contras: "No entertainment system. SATA internet did not work"
Prós: "It was nice that they served a meal. On the flight back we got an exit row which was nice. I liked that they were being thorough about security."
Contras: "My husband and I weren't seated together on the way out. On the way back they didn't start boarding until 10-20 min before the scheduled takeoff, so we didn't take off on time. The flight was also delayed 2 hours and there was no explanation as to why. The food was pretty bland."
Prós: "No complaints about the crew"
Contras: "The in air entertainment didn’t work and the flight was 2 hours delayed."
Contras: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and they never updated us while we were waiting or told us why. They changed planes and seat assignments without notice so the seats we selected we disregarded and we were not sitting next to each other. No entertainment and food was worst I’ve had on a plane."
Prós: "Simpatia da tripulação, assento espaçoso, voo sem incidentes."
Contras: "Atraso do voo, mas justificado pelas más condições climatéricas."
Prós: "Voo normal"
Contras: "Lanche pobre"
Contras: "There were no screens and the app didn’t work to watch movies on my iPhone. Also they waited too long to give out drinks"
Prós: "Crew is wonderful. Very efficient boarding utilizing both front and rear doors of the aircraft"
Contras: "Food was sub par. Older plane without tv screens"
Prós: "Nice crew"
Contras: "Lack of entertainment"
Contras: "My brain new luggage was very badly damaged"
Prós: "I loved the fact that our meals, drinks and seat allocation was included in the price. The staff at Azores air was excellent. The flight crew was friendly and it was a smooth flight that took off and landed on time."
Contras: "I bought the ticket through lastminute.com everything I had sent to me said I was on a TAP flight. It was a shared flight and I actually had to check in with Azores Air. This caused me a lot of stress as when I called lastminute.com to find out what was going on as TAP didn’t have a flight leaving to my destination it was only after several minutes of conveying there was no Tap flight that the customer service rep said oh you are to check in with Azores Air."
Contras: "They had us board from the front and the back of the plane, and a gridlock ensued in the middle with people trying to cross paths to get to their seat. When we landed, we sat on the runway for 20 minutes or so waiting for a gate. Customs/immigration in Boston was HORRIBLE, we waited in lines for over 90 minutes."
Prós: "Flight crew was very nice."
Contras: "Could not pick seats when buying tickets through website. Had to call airline separately, which we did. However, actual tickets that we received at airport were for different seats. Happened to another couple on our flight as well."
Prós: "Flight from Sao Miguel was on time and arrival at Boston was also on time. The crew was friendly and professional. It would have been nice if the WiFi at the airport was faster so we could have loaded the WiFi app for on board entertainment, but somethings can’t always be accomplished."
Prós: "Couldn’t drink it since I am pregnant, but free wine with dinner."
Contras: "Plane was hot. Was in the back and had to sit for a while before air was turned on. No entertainment. Bad weather made our flight 2 hours longer. Couldn’t sleep on overnight flight as ailes were busy for the rest room."
Contras: "Expect major delays ."
Prós: "Pontualidade. Tripulação"
Contras: "Assento avariado"
Contras: "Almost everything seemed to be out-of-order and the crew seemed to be really struggling in order to bring some level of comfort to the on-board passengers."
Contras: "5 hrs delay and missed all connecting flights. Airline initially rescheduled flight 2 days later. Called Kayak and got no support. Kayak agent told us to keep pushing the airline. After 2 hrs of "working" with the airline, we were able to fly into Madrid the following day. Had to spend extra money for hotel room and car rental in Madrid because our final destination was Sevilla. Will never work with Azores or Kayak again. BTW, did we mention that while "working" with Azores to reschedule flight, we were booked to fly into an island off of Africa. Luckily, we followed up online with the changed itinerary."
Prós: "Crew was pleasant and helpful"
Contras: "Seats were very tight and uncomfortable."
Contras: "They kicked me off a flight 12 hours before departure, after booking months in advance, because they overbooked. No refund."
Prós: "It was clean."
Contras: "The vegetarian meal flying to the Azores was good but coming back to the US it was awful."
Contras: "I think the through flight through Portugal should have been more transparent. Myself and many others did not know about this flight until arriving at the airport. Regarding entertainment, there was no movie or anything like this for the long flight."
Prós: "... efficient, intelligent simplicity. Great job!"
Prós: "The price was right. All pre-flight personnel were very helpful and friendly. The flight was short and did exactly what it was intended to do."
Contras: "Don't expect any entertainment or decent amount of room. They cram you on and off you go. Worth it for me ..."
Prós: "Everything was smooth and comfortable."
Contras: "There is no in- flight entertainment."
Prós: "Everything was easy!"
Contras: "Everything was fine thanks."
Prós: "Nothing, the poorest of the poor and N empathy whatsoever"
Contras: "They canceled my flight because of too few passengers and than rushed all the passengers on an earlier flight. I was driving from Philly and of course couldn't make the flight that was bumped up three hour early. Than they have the balls to accuse me of being late and thus a no show. I have many witnesses that prove I was there on time. But no reschedule for me unless I pay a 1000 usd. I will sue these bastards with a passion. To an extend they have never seen. Not only a refund but loss of business as well"
Contras: "Waited in line 30 minutes before boarding even though we had already been through security. Business and first class passengers not given any priority in boarding. Limited food and beverage service onboard. Crew seemed inexperienced."
Prós: "SATA was very hospitable when our flight was delayed into the next day. They provided a hotel and dinner/breakfast vouchers."
Contras: "The App proved to be useles when our flight was delayed 14+ hours. We were able to check in the day of the flight, but were never alerted when the flight was delayed. We called customer service and waited on hold for 30+ minutes without connecting, even though the automated message said the wait would be 6 mins. Communication as a whole was quite poor and created a lot of anxiety amongst the visibly upset travelers."
Prós: "The flight itself was fine."
Contras: "The process of checking in for this flight was horrendous. First of all, I was planning to carry on my bags and check in online. However, the online system wouldn't let me print my boarding pass, so I had no option but to wait in line at the airport. I arrived over 2 hours before my flight, and the scene was jaw dropping. The line to check in on Azores Airlines wrapped all the way around the terminal and was divided into three separate sections so that people could continue pass through the airport. There was no Azores Airlines staff to be found to provide directions or manage the situation, so people kept going into the wrong lines not knowing what the heck was going on. It actually turned out several people had waited in line for an hour for a different flight before realizing they were in the wrong line. Anyways, after a mind-numbing, almost two hour wait, I checked in and went to my gate. The whole flight was delayed since the check-in was so slow. I have no idea what the cause of such a terrible check-in line was, but the Azores Airlines management at the Providence Airport are definitely doing something wrong, and I will avoid flying from there again at all costs!"
Contras: "Service. Food. And the return was worse - they cancelled two consecutive flights with no notice, causing us to stay three extra days, incur connection fees, other costs, and they could care less. Wound up flying to Lisbon on Ryanair. SATA says no refund. Worst airline in the world. We would never go back to Azores, thanks to them."
Prós: "Flight cancelled, were told we'd be called the next morning to reschedule but weren't, an hour on holdeach time we called, rescheduled a flight with extra stops 2 days later, was actually booked on a different flight, and were told we were actually only on standby when we arrived at the airport."
Contras: "Way too warm, uncomfortable seats, no entertainment"
Prós: "Asked for emergency seat, so space was not a problem. Temperature was cool. Seat uncomfortable."
Prós: "Not much"
Contras: "Never had such an uncomfortable flight! The temperature at my seat was far too hot- I and others were sweating constantly. Also I am 6' 3" but wouldn't recommend anyone over 6' fly this airline, at least not in the normal economy seats- I've never had the experience of being unable to move my legs due to the seat in front."
Contras: "They sold me a flight jknowing it was delayed by more than 13 hours"
Prós: "Free food and drinks."
Contras: "Flight delayed and we got no information about why. Few updates and bad communication in general. Faced same problems on way to Sao Miguel - only that trio was delayed almost 20 hours. Will avoid that airline in the future if possible."
Contras: "Extremely old plane - no air vents, very hot and uncomfortable No soap in bathrooms Service wasn't great Boarding process was very long Entertainment limited Didn't offer water during the flight outside of main foodservice"
Prós: "The crew was very friendly and boarding was pretty fast"
Contras: "No tvs for movies. To much drink were offered and a guy next to be got drunk and then was acting inappropriate"
Prós: "Food was good. Full dinner and breakfast"
Contras: "Made us get off the plane in Azores but would not let us in to shops and cafe. Meal not served till 11pm. Seats very narrow."
Prós: "The crew is very friendly and helpful."
Contras: "They crammed way too many seats into the planes; it's really awful if it's a full flight, and if you're claustrophobic or prefer space around you, forget it! When the guy in front of me reclined his seat, his head was practically in my lap. Some tray tables were broken. The planes seem old. But it's the only airline that flies to the Azores from the U.S., I believe, so this is the only option. They also very slow, and we left late to and from the Azores."
Prós: "Nothing. We didn't take this flight because of the SATA airline strike which left us stuck in Ponta Felgada for 2 days."
Contras: "We were majorly inconvenienced when finding out our flight was delayed, then cancelled completely, the. It happened again the next day. Lost 2 days of our trip whih were supposed to be in Lisbon. We found a Ryanair flight to Porto just to get to the mainland. What a nightmare. Never flying with Azores/SATA again!!"
Prós: "Happy for the incoming Barcelona passengers to make this flight. Ticket agent told us how to snag a couple of free seats, once everyone on board, so we could stretch out for 5 hr. flight. They serve brewed tea!"
Contras: "One hour late departing made for an extra long day of traveling. Be prepared for boarding a bus at gate to get to plane."
Prós: "Crew was attentive and it was a direct flight"
Contras: "There was very little room in the seats. It was terribly uncomfortable and made worse when the seat in front was declined"
Prós: "well im not an expert but , my flight was 2.5 h late , i understand thinks happen , but i believe is solution on that . On my job if im late my costumers dont coming back ( it is just how to control the time ) If we not can control the hours on the flights how we can control airplanes in the air ????!!!!!!!!!! Carlos Cristovao"
Contras: "Major delay caused major inconvenience for a senior in her 70's traveling alone."
Prós: "We got home alive. It was the first on time flight we had during of 4 flights with Azores air."
Contras: "Seats literally had duct tape on them. Food was atrocious. They only entertainment was the old two prone headphones and 8 looping crackly audio stations. On a calm day landing in in boston we set down one side of the rear landing gear, then the other, and squiggled down the runway. As the pilot didn't touch down early enough on the runway he had to really jam on the brakes. It was greeted with a round of applause because landing alive with azores air seems to be worthy of applause by the regulars... Least legroom of any airline. Bathroom was disgusting after 2 hr. Toilet paper was seemingly wadded up and stuck back into the dispenser. Nobody ever got new paper. Ran out of paper towels as well..."
