Prós: "Professional, friendly crew. Good food."
Contras: "No in flight entertainment - SATA app, WiFi did not work."
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"
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: "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."
Prós: "Left and arrived on time. Friendly crew. Decent snack served early in the flight."
Contras: "No entertainment beyond watching the map showing the progress of our flight."
Prós: "Pontualidade. Tripulação"
Contras: "Assento avariado"
Prós: "very friendly airline...thank you."
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: "IT WAS ON TIME"
Contras: "PACKED IN LIKE SARDINES"
Contras: "Seats are too small"
Contras: "They kicked me off a flight 12 hours before departure, after booking months in advance, because they overbooked. No refund."
Prós: "Service and the upgrade"
Prós: "Did not enjoy anything about this airline or flight. Everything is so backwards"
Contras: "Flights on Azores Airlines/SATA are always delayed. It is a shame that it is the only airline that flies to Terceira Island. They delay flights due to "operational issues" because they cannot get their stuff together. The crew was also unfriendly and while we were already 4 hours delayed one of the crew members (leader) had the audacity to tell her team "why are you guys in a hurrry for?" HELLO! We are already lady. Work harder and faster so we can make up some time. The food was disgusting and they barely give you anything to drink. Also, the planes are very old. Seats uncomfortable, no leg room, no TVs and stink."
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"
Prós: "Crew were lovely. Economy seats were pretty comfortable, with legroom. They allow one free checked item. Free food!"
Contras: "I ordered a vegan meal and got pasta with cheese. We were half an hour late taking off."
Prós: "Crew was professional. Flight was on time. Food was decent and seats were comfortable."
Contras: "Long flight for no entertainment. We were fine with kindles, without would have been a long boring flight."
Prós: "Crew was nice enough"
Contras: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight upon arrival in Lisbon. No in flight entertainment, only one meal served, no spot to plug in electronics, and the bathroom door was broken and didn't lock. I would suggest paying a little more for a better and more reliable airline."
Contras: "The flight was delayed due to "technical issues" two hours. This seems to be a consistent thing with SATA and Azores Airlines. The crew was rude when my bag did not fit in the cabin and they had to move it, too."
Prós: "The flight was on time!"
Contras: "Seating is ridiculously tight!"
Prós: "Free food and beer"
Contras: "3 hour delay and sizee of seats - SMALL pitch!"
Contras: "They cancelled the flight a couple hours before ltake off, then changed the flight number and took off with all the people they bumped from the day before. What a scam, told us it was "operational issues'""
Contras: "Didn't make it since the first flight was delayed for over 4 hours. Virgin did not help us with rebooking. Waiting on refund. No word yet. Very angry."
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: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful and very helpful with our 3-year-old son. He keeps asking to go on plane again because of how attentive they were and made his trip very enjoyable."
Contras: "No entertainment at all. The seats could have more recline as it was an overnight flight and nearly impossible to sleep. The trays for business class are so close that it is awkward and uncomfortable to use."
Prós: "Had two seats to myself. Hot breakfast."
Contras: "The airport in Lisbon was terrible. Got bussed 20 minutes to get to terminal and had to wait 2 hours in line to get through passport line. Could not find my bag, finally found it in a heap to the side. My friend traveling Air Canada had no trouble same day same time."
Contras: "Was too tired and worn out to really care after the long delay. Won't fly this airline again."
Contras: "The delay of over 12 hours was terrible. I'm sure most people will complain as everyone was furious. The staff didn't provide any guidance towards what the problem was or how long we could be waiting. Their communications were guesses at best."
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!!"
Contras: "Ponta Delgada ground staff misguided us with less than 30 min to catch connecting flight..."
Prós: "1 booked flight and selected seats months ahead. On date of departure reseated in middle section though previously booked window seats. 2 after arriving in Portugal informed return flight was cancelled due to crew strike. Told we can wait in Portugal or rebook on new airline. You can't make this stuff up."
Prós: "It was a economical flight. The food was pretty good as well."
Contras: "We had changes to pretty much every leg of our flights. One was delayed by 2.5 hours. I understand that flights get delayed but they hardly gave us any information as to what was going on. The flight was pretty smooth but the flight attendants didn't seem interested in our comfort. They weren't rude but they weren't pleasant either. I guess I'm used to a different style of service that I did not receive on Azores."
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: "Price, friendly crew"
Contras: "jammed in and not too comfy seats"
Prós: "Large comfy seats."
Contras: "Among the drawbacks, long immigration lines in LIS, despite the opportunity to go thru immigration in the Azores - lost opportunity for the airline to market its efficiency and convenience."
Prós: "Earlier TAP flight was late and caused me to miss my connecting flights. I will try hard never to fly with TAP again."
Contras: "Flight was cancelled because TAP flight was 2 hours late in picking me up."
Prós: "Earlier TAP flight was late and caused me to miss my connecting flights."
Contras: "Flight was cancelled because TAP flight was 2 hours late in picking me up."
Prós: "The price"
Prós: "The food was good. I enjoyed the flight. Though I've felt that I received less than I usually do from international flights but maybe just because this was shorter. No extra bull you don't need like an over night bag (that I've been given on other airlines for over night flights) but if you're expecting it, it may be a bit of a let down. My flight was just under 6 hours so maybe it's too short for that. They served a meal and a half. A full dinner, dessert and appetizer with wine. A muffin with coffee for breakfast. The dinner was surprisingly great. I actually really loved it. The muffin was just a plain blueberry muffin purchased from the store. Just a quick half meal before leaving."
Contras: "Well I had planned to go take a course in Porto which was the whole reason I bought this flight. I missed everything i came here for because of it. They reimbursed people and put people up in hotels, but not me. My trip was ruined essentially due to the cancellation of my first flight but the flight itself, when it did go, was good."
Prós: "Nothing, Sata is the worst airlines."
Contras: "Delayed for 7 hours with no explanation. Zero leg room"
Prós: "Good friendly well run safe airline"
Prós: "Direct Flight"
Contras: "Mediocre Food No gate for the plane in Boston or Lisbon, so you need to be shuttled to the plane. Entertainment system not working. Late leaving. Delayed landing (not their fault?) Too much money when compared with other, better airlines."
Prós: "The friendly staff and free food and drink."
Contras: "There was no entertainment."
