Pros: "Crew was nice & didn’t wake me (but once or twice squished by me in the aisle without saying “excuse me,” which I found a bit weird). Food was good. Not too many announcements or interruptions."
Cons: "I would prefer more vegetarian options for meals (one of them had only one [chicken] option, & I don’t think it was because they had run out of vegetarian food)."
Pros: "Crew was perfect, seat was great"
Cons: "All is well."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow that I can't sit properly. I'm a normal sized person. and even the shorter person next to me was extremely stuck in their seat. This is unhealthy and awfully uncomfortable on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Food may become better. Not twice meat, especially not late at night. Give an option for an omelet for example"
Pros: "Again, food and service in business class were superb. A newer 777 and more comfortable lie-flat seats"
Cons: "Business class gets only one small lavatory."
Cons: "They lost my baggage. The in-flight crew and food is excellent, ground support is not good."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Comfortable chairs for economy. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Great food, live tv (watched 2 World Cup games), great service."
Cons: "Leg room in economy was a bit tight. I got a full cup of tea spilled on me by the air hostess by accident but they offered to change my seat. It was bumpy at the moment so I understood plus they were very polite and dealt with it professionally."
Pros: "The eggplant/beef dish was the best food I have ever had on an airplane. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Wide range of movies, etc, available"
Pros: "Thr A330 has 32" pitch which was ok. The 2-4-2 seating made this less of an issue. Food was ok. Screens are decent and responsive."
Cons: "It's 32" for a 10 hour flight. Not really comfortable and enjoyable, and a squeeze throughout."
Pros: "Super staff"
Cons: "Bad WiFi connection"
Pros: "everything was perfect"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly"
Pros: "The food was great and the service was very good."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Staff and food. Also great selection of movies"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "It was nice"
Cons: "Food was not that nice"
Cons: "I was first seated next to the two largest people on the plane, a couple. There was hardly room for me in the seat. I had the aisle seat. I asked the flight attendant if I could be reseated and she said the plane was full and there were no open seats. She eventually found me a middle seat in the back of the plane, which was so cramped I could harpy move. For a 10 hours flight, not good. I have gold status on Star Alliance, which got me an upgrade from Bishkek to Istanbul, but didn't help on this flight."
Pros: "The bag with the slippers toothbrush etc"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Stop over in Istanbul, flight to US. Had to go again through security with not enough staff, stood around 40min in a messy line with no air-conditioning or water to go thorough security again. There were elderly people having to do the same. Later, after landing, there was no parking for the airplane, so after 10 hours flight we we're held for 25 minutes inside the airplane. New regulations will make me reconsider using Turkish airline for US bound flights, although it's a great company, unless they find a more comfortable and organized way to do the security check."
Pros: "Service, food and programming"
Cons: "I had a problem and I was not able to fly. I bought insurance and I tried to contact them, but they denied my request and I would definitely recommend to remove this option because it doesn't give a good image of KAYAK. If I want to trust this application, I have to be confident to use the services and I service from the insurance was fake. I tried to reach the airline to cancel my ticket and they said it's not refundable. Therefore, I would definitely recommend showing refund options when selling tickets. I lost every penny I spent because I was not able to fly. I am sure that my message is delivered now!!!!"
Cons: "שום דבר"
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."
Cons: "No individual air vents to control temperature"
Pros: "As always, great entertainment system. Constantly updating and improving."
Cons: "For some reason, I didn't get the option to choose a meal type at check-in, as I sometimes have in the past. Seeing as it's Passover, and I don't eat meat, I wasn't really able to eat much from the default meal I was given."
Pros: "Attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The check-in was quite hectic."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No kosher as ordered"
Cons: "Service is very bad"
Cons: "it's not so much the airline's fault. they don't have US immigration desk at Istanbul airport, and going through immigration at JFK can take ages."
Cons: "I missed this flight also and tried to get a refund for it because the times were not good for me."
Pros: "My JFK to IST flight on Oct 21st, the plane was nice and new. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was up to date. The food on this particular flight was good."
Cons: "According to the Turkish Airlines site they offer free accommodations to passengers who have over 10 hr layover in Istanbul if you are an economy passenger. I was under this impression that I would fall under this category because when I initially booked the ticket (JFK - IST - LIS and return LIS - IST - JFK) my layover back to JFK was 18 hours. Two weeks prior to leaving for my trip I received a notification saying that the layover will be extended to 34 hours. Seeing that my layover was extended, I thought that Turkish Airline would offer me accommodation for both nights. When I arrived to IST (10:30pm local time) I went to the Turkish Airline transfer desk in which they said they would not allow me to have the 2 nights accommodation. After about an hour and half of discussion they could only offer me one night accommodation and changed my flight to an earlier flight. The attendant who was serving me told me to wait by the kiosk until my name was called. At the 30 minute mark I tried to ask another kiosk attendant to see what the status was and he replied back in a very rude manner saying he has no idea what I'm referring to and that essentially was not his problem. After another hour and half of waiting and seeing other frustrated passengers going to the transfer desk and not being helped, I went on the queue to see what the status of my ticket was. They finally gave me my ticket and at this point it was close to 1am. Thankfully I did research before hand and under the assumption that I was going to spend a day in Istanbul, spent $20 and got a Turkish visa prior to my travel, which according the the turkish consulate website that you can no longer get a visa while in the airport. I finally reached the airport hotel at 2:30am but the airport shuttle was to arrive in 4 hours to shuttle all the passengers back. So not only did I deal with a rude staff, but I paid $20 to be in Turkey for about 4 hours in an airport hotel."
Cons: "Check in late, rude staff, bad food"
Pros: "Although there was only one option for meals, they were good nevertheless. The entertainment on Turkish Airlines is the best I've ever seen on any international airline. There are so many options and the layout is new and modern."
Cons: "Compared to my flight from New York to Istanbul, my flight from Istanbul to New York was less wonderful. The crew was not as attentive and was not helpful in assisting the grandmother who was sitting next to me with her 2-year-old grandson who wanted to know if another seat was available. There was only once choice for the meals, which I found odd on a long international flight, but I did enjoy the meals. The plane was older than the one I took from New York and were less comfortable. I don't usually have a problem with legroom (I'm pretty average height at 5'5"), but the legroom on this flight was noticeably smaller."
Cons: "The A/C in the cabin was not working properly and for the first 2 hours was not even working. I had a hard time breathing, I was sweating and felt like I was going to faint. Eventually it worked better, but was on and off during the flight. It was unacceptable to let the plane go with the A/C not working properly. They even tried to blame it on the engines, that they had to work in full to get it going. I've flown hundreds of times and this is the first time I encountered anything like that."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough and the flight seemed fast considering."
Cons: "My seat tv and headphones did not work, and I had to ask several times for assistance. They ran out of the food I could eat, and there was a child kicking the seat behind me 70% of the 11 hour flight. My seat was broken and would not stay reclined. The flight attendants were not attentive. I pressed the button a few times (to get assistance with the broken items, and no one came. The 11hour flight was more like being in a shopping mall for 11 hours, people getting up and walking everywhere, talking in the aisles-I understand the children crying-but kicking other peopmes seats is unacceptable and the flight staff should address that if their training allows."
Pros: "My mother's luggage was lost and arrived to us ripped the next day and i emailed them yet no compensation has been made and no one has replied to the email."
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to my destination with me. I waited an hour by the luggage carousel until I saw someone that informed me that one of my suitcases did not make it onto the flight. I had to wait until the next day for it to be delivered. While I am glad it was delivered to my residence, I am frustrated for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "Turkish Air flight from Istanbul to NYC was fine but Turkish Air flight leaving Tashkent 8:15 am to Istanbul, May 29, was terrible. Although we had all been up from 5am to get to early morning flight and Tashkent air port has no services, stewardess ran out of coffee and repeatedly refused to get me, the person skipped, coffee, despite repeated requests for a first cup. Each time they refilled coffee, they started run from beginning of plane, and ran out by the time they got to the middle. Usually if someone gets skipped, they just go back and get a single cup, but this lady was determined not to. Never had this happen in 55 years of flying. Serious caffine deficiency."
Pros: "crew members"
Cons: "late hours"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"
Cons: "Neverrrrr againnnnn!!!!!!!with Turkish airlines"
Cons: "I ordered kosher food and again American Airlines didn’t get me any"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good food/service throughout the trip."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and when we arrived late no one was there to meet us at the gate. We had to wait to deplane."
Cons: "Fight was delayed 50 min departure because flight crew wasnt there. Also, plane was very old and outdated."
Pros: "Crew was not friendly and gathered in the rear galley complaining about their job and customers. The seat was not comfortable at all."
Pros: "A couple crew members were great and attentive. A couple seemed like they would’ve rather been anywhere else."
Cons: "This plane is so outdated. For such a long flight, these days entertainment is everything. The movies got interrupted every time an announcement was made (as in the screens went black and never came back on only the sound) this happened to 3 movies! The “wifi” completely useless."
Pros: "Service, food and the cleanliness. Also the help we got in transfer, from one flight to the other."
Cons: "Nothing really much!"
Cons: "Crew was cold and rude"
Pros: "Flight was late, food gave me diarrhea o"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "The fare rate. The boarding crew were good. The onboard crew were not too friendly. No smiles."
Cons: "The seats seem to be tight. I’m only 120kbs and 5’ and yet I’m having a hard time squeezing into my seat. The food was ok. Entertainment is a big zero. The plane is okd style."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Would have preferred getting a better seat."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Cons: "The fact that for an aisle seat in economy I need to pay extra. I feel nickeled and dimed."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing extraordinary, just solid and fine"
Cons: "Nothing bad in particular. The passengers could've been more friendly, but that's not the airline's fault"
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "New airbus at least"
Cons: "Long boarding time, very long disembarking time. We were told we had to check our bags at the gate when we found there to be enough headroom above us for our bags after."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly, the plane was clean and food was ok"
Cons: "Having to stand in line with a 2 year old while rude passengers rush to board not caring about anyone or anything bit getting to their seat. What happened to letting customers with small children board first"
Pros: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Entertainment options were great"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Cons: "It was FREEZING. Uncomfortably so that we were unable to sleep."
Pros: "The airplane was new and very spacious. Air hostess were very accommodating. The flight took off and landed on time. Food and snack quality was amazing. Entertainment options were plenty. Restrooms were clean and smelled fresh through the journey."
Cons: "Since my flight was connecting from London to New York we barely had a break even though we were suppose to have a 2.5 hour layover. As soon as we got off our first plane we were directed to American Airline security where they questioned me about my trip and what I did in Spain. Then I was directed to TSA where it took a long time to get through the lines. I got to my gate an hour before take off and they were already boarding. I didn't have a moment to take a bathroom break or grab a drink/snack. But again, this experience was not all that bad because all the positive notes listed above."
Cons: "Flight delayed and the costumer service was very bad in terms of providing information to the costumers, I have called and there was no proper line to reach them at, I got my information from British Airways, as they were operating the flight."
Pros: "No major issues with the flight itself, see below for MAJOR issues with check-in and checking bags."
Cons: "The organization with American Airlines at Charles de Gaulle was absolutely pathetic. I understand it's a busy airport, but NONE of the other airlines had lines like American did. Then by the time you get up to an American airline employee, incompetence was written all over their faces. The straw that broke the camel's back was that they insisted on separating my partner and me while doing security questions, meanwhile other parties who were together were not separated (LGBT discrimination). This pushed us back 10 minutes--we were separated and he was having to wait for me after the questioning to get my bag checked, too. I'll add that we arrived to the airport with over 2 hours to spare before our flight which should have been more than enough time. We probably would have missed the flight if not for a few decent Charles de Gaulle employees who bumped us though lines at customs when they realized the time crunch, no thanks to anyone with American Airlines. I heard so many saying they will not use American Airlines again, and how saving a few dollars was not worth the headache. Flying is already stressful enough, don't make it that much worse."
Cons: "The staff was rude not helpful and mean worst crew I've ever seen and I fly alot"
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "At least the entertainment was good while I waited for my food."
Cons: "I asked for a chicken option meal and the flight attendant was at the end of my area of sitting (the front half) and left to the back and said he would return. I waited and waited and nothing while everyone ate. I ran the flight attendant button(many many many times) and no one came. I didn't get up because why am I going to chase someone down? After about 30 mins or more later someone finally passed by that was going to ask for trash. I asked for my food and they apologized and brought back a pasta option and said they were sorry that they ran out of chicken. So I was made to wait for half an hour while everyone ate to NOT get what I wanted and be forgotten about?! Unacceptable. Took me another 30 mins to get my appetite back since I was so upset. Also, our flight left an hour later!!! No one said anything to us about why we were late. They accommodated those with connecting flights in the US but still. What is going on?"
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "flights were re-scheduled and therefore had to travel a day early causing overnight expenses in NY. Re-scheduled flight was also delayed by an hour!"
Pros: "We booked Finnair, but it was a code share with AA. We stood in line at ticket counter for 1hr, and then was sent to AA. We almost missed our flight. We were there 3hr before our flight. Very confused!!! What is your suggestion? Should you say AA not Finnair???"
Cons: "I missed the connection in London and had to wait 5 hours for another flight. This was only due the fact that there is no help to passengers in connection. I had over an hour and a half to get to my flight but waiting for the busses and to commute to the right gate took so long that I missed my flight."
Pros: "From boarding to landing evething was perfect. Flight was not overcrowded, so I could lay and sleep comfortable in economy. Crew ok"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and very professional. It was not a full flight and boarding was quick and easy. We landed almost an hour early. When we made the reservation we were told it was an 8 hour and 50 minute flight but we got there in 7 hours and 45 minutes, more than 1 hour early. It would be good to know the real timing so that meetings could be planned in a timely way."
Cons: "This is a code share with American Airlines and an American Airlines plane and crew and it is an out of date plane. There were no individual screens only 1 screen hanging down every five or six seats. The seats are very, very narrow. The cleanliness of the tray tables were gooey and full of crusted dirt as were the seat areas in front of the tray tables. I was told that they fly an even older plane from Europe to NY, which is an old one aisle plane. Not sure why AA continues to use such out of date planes but if they use planes from the 1980's it seems to me that they should charge 1980 prices!"
Cons: "The plain was an old model with no personal screens... So boring"
Pros: "The service was good and the food was ok. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "That we didn't have our own screen to select our own movies."
Pros: "Upgraded from Business to First on a transcend A321. Seats amazing, hard product is just superb on these planes. Crew good but a bit animatronic as always with AA."
Pros: "Great flight attendants and agents, employees care about providing quality customer service to the consumer."
Cons: "No media device on the plane to provide entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable and tiny. My wife is 5'4" &120 lbs and found her seat uncomfortable...we were also sitting in comfort seats. It is 2016, please stop the madness of having coast to coast flights with no entertainment available."
Cons: "The seats were so cramped we could barely move. It was hot, it felt like there was no a/c most of the flight. The flight crew was late which delayed my flight. Awful. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Our flight from Seattle to JFK was delayed over 11 hours, not because of weather or mechanical issue, but because a flight attendant fell ill and American Airlines had no one to take his or her place. They had to fly in an employee from Texas to cover the shift. Are you kidding me? I understand there are unforeseen events but any reputable airline should have a personnel contingency plan better than that. As a result, we lost a whole day of our vacation, missed our Broadway performance, and others missed their business meetings. All the alerts informing us of the delay were sent long after they already occurred. I will avoid flying American again at all costs."
This was not an Iberia Flight, this was a LEVEL flight (even if you, Kayak, sold it to me as Iberia). The ground hostess was disgraceful, and only because of her nasty behavior towards me and my family, I am planning not to fly LEVEL ever again. I am not sure I will fly through Kayak either. Because of your deceptive techniques, I thought I was buying a flight with luggge included, but I wasn’t. I had to pay 550 euros extra in luggage. Are you, Kayak, going to return this money to me? That would be elegant. And also because of your deceptive techniques, I thought I was flying Iberia, but I was not, it was Level. It turns out Iberia does take cats on board, but level does not. So once I was at the airport ready to fly with my cat, I was told cats cannot fly level. Overall, a sad and aweful experience.
Checking was smooth, staff generally all friendly, boarding a bit disorganized (I heard no announcements), plane clean and modern, etc. Check-in could potentially have been this easy though because the flight was pretty empty. You have to pay for everything including blankets, pillows, headsets to enjoy the (free) entertainment, any food, etc., but that was expected, and I have no issue with that. However, not even offering any water during the flight is crazy on an nearly 8 hour flight, especially for our kids. You can go ask for it, but they are not coming through to offer you any, presumably because they are trying to sell you drinks.
Cons: "Food, all flights—ugh!! Basically bad school lunches."
Cons: "Seats are too close together, very uncomfortable for long international flight"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Pros: "The pilot did an excellent job navigating through rough weather."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess, too many special groups, and then the masses get in and it just becomes a zoo inside the plane. There are so many charges, flying these days is really not better than taking a local bus."
Cons: "Too many people and little space to move"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about Iberia"
Cons: "I paid extra to book early so I could be assure of a seat with a view and so I could sit with my husband. Iberia charged my credit card 55.00 for the service and then, without my knowledge Iberia changed my seats and denied charging me extra. I have papers to prove my claim and will dispute the charges with my credit card company. The communication between flight attendants and passengers was horrible. Those of us who had not eaten yet (about half the plane in economy seating) watched the flight attendants bring out extra bread to all of the other economy passengers who had already received their meals, while we, who had not eaten yet, watched. My husband inquired if we were also receiving meals. He was told that everyone would eventually receive a meal. Horrible customer service, the worst ever. Later, before landing the pilot cancelled beverage and snack service because of possible weather conditions but never put the seat belt sign on until we began our decent. Nothing made any sense. It was like a crazy person was in charge. I would not trust Iberia to take me anywhere in the future."
Cons: "Awful. My departing city (ZAG) was unable to process tickets for my connecting flight. Upon arrival to (MAD) the gate agent was distributing tickets on a 1st name basis. Literally just handing out tickets without verifying IDs. Not all us PAX received a ticket and were instructed to go to the customer service desk, all the while boarding was ACTIVE at the gate. While at the customer service desk, Iberia showed little attention and/or urgency for us folks who did not have our connecting flight credentials. I finally received a hand-written ticket to board an international flight. My original seat selection was not honored. The overall flight experience was poor and NOT enjoyable."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."
Pros: "Almost nothing!"
Cons: "Seats small and uncomfortable. My seat did not recline for 8 1/2-9 hours (middle seat-even after told it was a good seat). My sons entertainment screen did not work for the last 3 1/2 hours. The stewardess’ didn’t even respond to the call light and after myself and sister walked back there, nothing was done. Stewardess’ sat and talked in the back and never walked around. When the finally brought drinks, never even asked why the light was on. They also were extremely unfriendly because our incoming flight from Malaga was late . All 4 pieces of luggage missed the flight and in NYC we had to ask for robes to sleep in and tooth brushes. we felt horrible flying the next day. Three pieces of luggage came 2 days later that we had to go back to airport to get. The fourth was delivered one week later with only 3 wheels!"
Cons: "Had to take a flight to New York 2 days later, then drive back home"
Pros: "crew members were nice."
Cons: "They switched someone into my seat and didn't give me a new seat. It was very hot in the airplane making it very uncomfortable. They also forgot to take my tray before landing and I had to hold it in my lap."
Pros: "This trip would have been another good experience for me flying with Iberia if it wasn't for the man that was sitting behind me. He didn't want me to recline my seat because he wanted to cross his legs... I told him that the guy in front of me had his seat reclined all the way and I wanted (sort of needed) to do the same, then he got aggressive with verbal abuse, called me names and he punched my seat. So I called the flight attendant and told her about the incident. She was nice and calm and told the man in a very respectful way that I wasn't doing anything wrong and he should not behave in an aggressive manner, etc. The man kept mumbling insults addressed to me while talking to his wife and making sure I was hearing it.... And he kept kicking my seat every now and then, and made a fuss every time he went to the toilet. He really ruined my flight experience to New York."
Pros: "Crew are helpful"
Cons: "The tight space especially in seated with a big lady and inconsiderate person in front of me"
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "Food terrible."
Pros: "Aircraft is comfortable (A340-600)"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude."
Pros: "Premium economy was very comfortable on Iberia. Their advertisements are true. We also got a great fare. Checkin at Madrid was pretty quick and security moved right along."
Cons: "Getting on the plane was an adventure. Note clear where they wanted groups to go. Food was ok; drinks limited in choice."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and very helpful."
Cons: "Very hard to get any information about connective flights. I had 1 hour between the flights and I asked the assistant at the passport control to help me to get through, she said that everyone needs to stay in the same line. I pushed myself through, which I never do, and run all the way to the gate, and hardly made my flight. It is very hard to get any information because most employees don't speak English. I will never fly with Iberia again. I would rather pay more and fly with another company. I was very upset about my flying experience."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 hours. No apologies. Nothing. Interesting thing: NYC to Madrid, 3 hours late, missed connection, no apologies., nothing One week later: Madrid to NYC: 3 hours late, no apologies, nothing. IBERIA AIRLINES: Never again!"
Cons: "We were delayed two hours after boarding while the ventilation system was repaired. Some people got water...others not. We were the one not given water."
Pros: "The dinner that was served wasn't terrible"
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane. The movie choices were mediocre. Could have used a little bit more leg room."
Pros: "I flew business class: the crew and comfort was great; the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Boarding was horrendous: they have the whole flight stand and wait to board! In Madrid, they called to initiate boarding and we stood for 15-20 min before anyone moved at all; business class was then called, and we ended up standing another 15-20 min in the jetway before being ushered into the plane! Even in business class, the entertainment system was poor it's difficult to use and my system froze entirely on the way to Madrid. It worked on the way back, but the selection was relatively limited and poor."
Cons: "Flight was ontime and food was good"
Pros: "The flying crew was OK."
Cons: "The company is not good on following schedules, jeopardizing people's duties and responsibilities. Definitely not recommending this company to anyone!"
Cons: "Boarding was extremely disorganized and hectic. No lines or sections were created to organize boarding process. Boarding area was crammed with people pushing to board. Seat selections of many passengers (including my boyfriend's and my own) were switched at the last minute right as we were boarding . We had to wait until everyone was seated to negotiate seat changes with fellow passengers in order to sit together. The seat and luggage moves added to the chaos on the plane and delayed the flight by about 45 minutes. food was mediocre, seats uncomfortable. All in all not a good experience. Had boarding been calmer and smoother the rest of the issues wouldn't be as notable as us passengers would have been in a much better mood."
Cons: "After a delayed flight coming to Madrid, I was faced with an unbelievably long boarding control line, it seemed clear that I would miss my flight! Crew then stopped all people from going up to the security check point except those headed to London! But I was going to miss my flight to JFK also. This process was so poorly managed!!!! The crowd became very angry, some people even started pushing, yelling and becoming violent. I feared for my safety. I pleaded with a crew member to let me through, and eventually she did, but the process was frightening and chaotic!!!"
Pros: "Always great service on Iberia."
Cons: "My only complaint, and it's frequently the case with Iberia, is that the cabin is always very cold. Thanks for the blankets, though!"
Pros: "Transatlantic flight with 1980-s entertainment. Both ways...Thirld world ...I was ashamed the airline was American"
Cons: "Two food options were beef or beef. Unacceptable"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of legroom. Service was pleasant."
Pros: "We like the food, the entretenment service, the airplane was new and flight attendants was very polite !!!"
Cons: "The customer service people were the least sympathetic and least helpful people I have ever met. They did nothing to accommodate us."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and service was great. Food good and had a great selection of movies. Thanks."
Pros: "Surprisingly more leg room"
Cons: "The plane was filthy. Crew members didn't seem to care to take care of passengers. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "Very good food overall. Picking up utensils a little slow. Good coffee. Lavatories were accessible at all times. I was able to get aisle seat without a hassle. Good movie selection l. Movie quality itself was disappointing l."
Cons: "We were on the plane for 2 hours before we were offered any drinks (soda, water, etc.) The seats were quite small ( I'm average sized.) and I often felt as if I were slipping off the seat. The aircraft was very warm with poor airflow."
Pros: "Thought the crew did a good job."
Cons: "3 people in my group; not seated together; given different boarding groups; I was TSA pre-check, they weren't. Food was horrible. Plane was cramped and DIRTY. In flight entertainment useless since small screen was too far away for me to see. Despite Iberia flight number, this was an American Airlines plane and crew."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was over two hours delayed; flight attendants mostly ignored economy cabin, closed the curtains and chatted in their little area, and took a really long to respond to calls for attention to get water etc."
Cons: "1hr. delay because plane lost electrical power. No entertainment on board due to previous electrical problem. 1hr delay at arrival again due to plane electrical power."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Mediocre food choices."
Cons: "No information about 2 hours delay, no tv, old plane, no service, food disgusting. One of the worst flight ever"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Food was good Flight was on time Attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Boarding was extremely disorganized with people not in line. Food service was very slow."
Pros: "Seats are very good and food"
Cons: "Held in jet way for 15 minutes for crew to open doors (hot). One crew member constantly bumping seat or me"
Cons: "The boarding is very bad, you can not board 400 people in 15 minutes, the result will be, you will arrive one hour late! Also, Why the crew wear gloves when pick up left overs but not when serving the food? Really the crew training, it is very poor to sat the least. Arlindo."
Cons: "Tech/entertainment screens could be more updated"
Cons: "No USB outlets"
Pros: "Great service and food"
Cons: "Entertainment system was broken."
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs. Long lines because I couldnt do online booking"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I was ticketed on AirFrance/Delta, but I guess they are a part of Skyteam and the plane was Air Europa Old decrepit aircraft, that had years of accumulated dirt between seats and such No personal TV screens Food was as bad as it gets for the snack, though the main meal was as they all are except more frugal. Headphones were available for 3 euros- never had that occur on an international flight. I will always ask if my ticket includes Air Europa as an operator and avoid them if that is the case"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "It was a long flight and for a period of 3 hours if you wanted anything to drink you needed to go look for it. They should have come around with water every 2 hours is my suggestion"
Pros: "No frills service with a great crew and well maintained planes"
Cons: "Not too many entertainment options for a translatantic flight"
Pros: "I couldn’t have wished for a smoother flight for both ‘legs’."
Cons: "Again, the entertainment offering could be better for the translatantic flight."
Cons: "A low cost company trying to compete with bigger company and prices too high for what you got."
Pros: "Price paid"
Cons: "Food and drink options were mediocre. Also limited entertainment options..."
Pros: "Crew was great, however boarding could be improved. Too many checks and waiting to board."

Pros: "Good service and comfortable flight"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the flight attendants were pleasant and professional. Very impressive!"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No outlet to charge a phone"
Cons: "old planes, bad food, no individual tv screens, no choice movies, no air vents."
Pros: "Smooth flight and courteous attendants."
Cons: "They told me 30 euros to check bag and then charged me 60, not fair."
Cons: "Every flight was at least an hour delayed. We were insanely late for our connection flight due to a totally unnecessary delay at the first airport. We then SPRINTED across the whole Madrid airport and then when we arrived to second plane was TWO HOURS delayed. The staff always seemed to be working, but was completely inefficient in getting anything done. It took them 20 minutes to respond to our notice (we pressed the air attendant button on our seats) and then told us we couldn't get snacks because they were giving out pizzas, which took another hour. Every single part of our flight was delayed and inefficient... with no reason ever being given. It was pretty miserable overall and I will likely never use Air Europa ever again."
Cons: "Airplane seats were small and too firm Airplane entertainment system was terrible"
Pros: "The flight was great overall. The staff was super friendly and they kept coming around with water and tea. My seat was comfy and I slept a lot."
Cons: "This was a pretty long flight, but the seats did not have individual screens for entertainment like on most international planes. Instead, there were a few large screens in the center aisles but the shows were not in English and you had no personal choice of what to watch."
Pros: "Everything was fine! I slept most of the trip as I was lucky enough to get a window seat. The food was okay and I actually quite liked the red wine I had."
Cons: "Can't complain! As I said for the way there, I would prefer not to have to pay to pre-pick my seats, but we choose the random option and I still got to sit next to my cousin (who I was traveling with) for all 4 flights of our trip."
Cons: "the transfer took 30 minutes - why land in the most distant place in the airport to transfer to next flight. get your logistics together."
Pros: "Timeliness cleanness food movies"
Cons: "Not on time. Delayed boarding and flight. Was told by customer service on the phone that I would not have to pay for checked luggage from Madrid to Barcelona since I am a tourist....guess what? It was a big fat lie. Had to pay 60 Euros to check me and my daughter's bag!"
Pros: "departure from JFK to Madrid was on time"
Cons: "Comfort is not equivalent with price. Very tight seats. On the way to Madrid no personal entertainment system. On the way back personal entertainment system was very, very lagi, additionally reset itself during movie fief times, and from where I was seating other people had the same issue. Coordination at airport was also not the best after landing at JFK, because we spend almost 50 minutes in airplane waiting for docking."
Cons: "Food can be improved"
Pros: "All went well. As above"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The fact that a 8 hour flight doesnt have any sort of entertainment for the guest's or the ability to charge your own entertainment devices is absurd."
Cons: "Old plane. Poor entertainment. Average food. Average staff."
Cons: "Any long flight should have provide wifi for its passengers."
Cons: "Lengthy boarding process Overwhelmed, unhelpful crew members. Dysfunctional entertainment system"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice"
Pros: "On time. Plane well kept. Staff friendly and efficient. And the food was surprisingly tasty."
Cons: "No individual videos. No power outlets at your seat"
Cons: "They closed the boarding doors early and I ran thru the entire airport to get there and they wouldn't let me on because my flight was delayed. THE WORST"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours and I've missed very important meeting and event I had to attend to In NYC!"
Pros: "Entertainment was non existent for such a long flight. Crew could not speak very good English and weren't attentive at all."
Pros: "Convenience - nonstop to/from Madrid"
Cons: "Food, entertainment (lack of), comfort"
Pros: "Blanket and pillow meal ok staff friendly and attentive"
Cons: "No boarding call headphones sold crush to get on flight"
Pros: "I was surprised by the food, and the crew was always kind, warm, and welcoming. I liked that we got two meals for our trip and that the flight was smooth. We weren't delayed at all and everything was incredibly efficient. I was really impressed for a low-cost flight."
Cons: "My partner was really uncomfortable, as the distance between seats is pretty insufficient. I was only comfortable because I am a particularly short person. Also, it was a little disappointing that the TVs on our first flight didn't work and that there were only two TVs for the whole back cabin during the second flight. That is not the end of the world, though, and I think that even on a budget airline, seat sizes are unfortunate. Also, the timing of the movies was really strange. They couldn't fit in two movies for an 8 hour flight because they were timed poorly."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "No entertainment at all."
Pros: "Beautiful plane."
Cons: "Flight was late to depart at Miami. Food is the worst and hardly any. Entertainment is basic and had to pay for the headphones which should be included."
Pros: "The flight ayendance on the place really nice. The food very good."
Cons: "I had a visa to fly to new york and she sid not let me chexk it because she was telling me i did not have the right papers . I had a visa ans the right papers to fly and she told me i had to make a ESTA. WHEN I ALREADY HAD MY VISA!!! SHE did not know what she was doing snd i had to spent 34 dollars at the airport because an agency made it for me. When i got in madrid airport the flight attendance told me that the Esta was not necessary for me as i had a visa. So the woman in barcelona got me crazy and I spent my money i wasted my time for nothinf and i almost miss my plane!!!!! Embarassing how they can have workers like that!!!!! Terrible!!!"
Pros: "Flight was good. The flight attendants were very nice and accommodating. The boarding process was a little chaotic and not well organized. I would definitely fly them again."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying on a Spanish air line; the attitude of the flight attendants was a bit more professional than most American air lines. However, the flight attendants were either incredibly helpful, warm, and attentive or incredibly rude and cold."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours in the airport, then we boarded and the door of the plane was sealed. We were then held for an additional 2 HOURS inside the plane–no air conditioning, no food or any refreshments until 5 minutes before we took off they offered water. They said there were "technical difficulties" but said nothing more and seemed not at all apologetic. The in flight entertainment was okay, and the food was nothing special. I don't understand how air plane food is still at the low level of quality it is. With all the products, processed foods, and variety of diets that exist, how is it that air lines haven't figured out a better system?"
Cons: "Delayed flight and super old airplane."
4 times I have travelled with Vueling and have had my baggage lost exactly THREE of those 4 times. And today we were delayed 1 hour as the pilot said they were looking for missing luggage. Apparently they never found it and just left! Nice start to our holiday.
Pésimo servicio. Nos movieron el horario del vuelo lo cual afectó nuestro itinerario y la atención telefónica imposible. Nos presentamos al nuevo vuelo que nos asignaron y a pesar de tener asientos space plus el vuelo estaba sobrevendido y no no los dieron pero tampoco nos regresaron lo que habíamos pagado por ellos. El personal no fue nada amable, ni en el check in, ni en el abordaje ni en el vuelo.
Pros: "Price was very reasonable and they allowed us a carry-on item."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled at the last minute. And we were lucky enough to get on a flight that fit our schedule. But it was very fortunate. We might have had larger issues. Some of the other passengers appeared to have had difficulty with their flight arrangements."
Cons: "1 hour delay leaving from Berlin plus 1 hour wait for the luggage in Barcelona"
Cons: "Great, prompt service Thank you,Vueling Team From now on , we are you loyal customers"
Cons: "The santorini airport is a mess. Our flight was delayed nearly an hour because the tiny airport wasn’t able to handle the amount of flights they had coming in and going out at the same time"
Cons: "Late as per Vueling fashion"
Pros: "Quick flight - friendly staff"
Pros: "As expected for a budget flight."
Cons: "Even though it's a budget flight, I feel water should still be available to passengers free of charge."
Cons: "Pay for all, it's ridiculous for the price of the ticket"
Cons: "I missed the rental car"
Pros: "Everything except luggage handling."
Cons: "New luggage came off plane in pieces."
Pros: "Quick boarding with the baby, very helpful friendly staff"
Pros: "When check-in online I was given 1st row seats, as a result I was treated as an excellence customer. Great service."
Cons: "Delayed again to depart, and over 30 minutes to show reclaim belt to get the luggage"
Cons: "Never made the flight bc the 1st leg of the trip was delayed. What a waste of time and money"
Pros: "This was a standard flight.... there was nothing special about it...."
Cons: "The second time in one month that the planes takes off with almost an hour of delay without anyone giving any explanation"
Cons: "being subjected to a 15 hour travel day and missing an entire 1/3 of my 3 day vacation"
Cons: "The boarding time has been changing every few minutes since the morning. I arrived in the gate where there were about 30 people with boarding passes but no assigned seats all overbooked. Half the people left on a bus then boarding stopped and we're returned back to the terminal going through security and hour or so later. The company reps had a big attitude problem and could provide no explanation to what and why anything is happening. In the end they tell us to leave the gate after 1.5 hours wait and look for new boarding info around 2pm. I managed to get on the flight by chance: no updated info was announced - I by chance heard a poor fellow working for the airline trying to find people at a nearby cafe who were supposed to be on that flight. If I had my headphones on I doubt I would be able to board that plane"
Pros: "La compagnie a tenté de prévenir régulièrement du retard, par sms et mail."
Cons: "Retard de plusieurs heures, un voucher de 6€ censé permettre de « dîner » à l’aéroport... rien à boire ni manger une fois dans l’avion, et pas de compensation une fois arrivé à Paris CDG où nous en avons eu pour 45€ de Uber pour rentrer puisqu’il n’y avait plus de RER..."
Cons: "It got deleyed i missed a bus because of that. It goy delayed because of a error with some luggage from other flight thatbwas sent to that flight."
Pros: "I paid extra for the extra-legroom seats, and that was good. Though they charge for snacks/food/drinks, I was fine with a free cup of water."
Cons: "Our seats up front (2nd row) didn't recline, and it wasn't because of bulkheads or exit rows. It was a short flight, so it wasn't too bad."
Pros: "I've lost my job! The flight first thing in the morning should respect that we rely on them to get on time in the morning. One in 3 flights of Vueling are delayed! Ryanair is far better in this point! Today I really hate Vueling"
Cons: "I also lost the train tickets! I had to pay twice for everything. An apology is not enough, it sounds like they are laughing on us!"
Pros: "on time, easy to do, price"
Cons: "everything worked out well for this flight"
Pros: "Good flight on time so no complaints"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Boarding was messed up. Paying for priority boarding then having the gate open the boarding area to all passengers created some heated words, plus people pushing ahead for boarding."
Pros: "Flight was fine. I chose a good book."
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "Kiwi overcharged me for my luggage inappropriately"
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed they made up time in the air."
Cons: "Seats are very close together so not good for long haul flights. Not entirely comfortable. ."
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Boarding was not bad, but a bit confusing"
Cons: "Flight attendants more interested in talking to each other than serving customers. We went hours without water. I went back to the galley to get some and no one was there, so I served myself"
Pros: "The airline decided to change the plane so everyone could not fit. As a result, we have been changed to a new flight but a different airport. This is an incredibly poor airline and this type of service should not be allowed nor acceptable."
Cons: "CONVOLUTED BOARDING PROCESS"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good airplane. 1stars for food/entertainment since not applicable an option (I had neither) Good image-good feeling"
Cons: "Seating cramped for longer legged folk"
Pros: "The onboard food for purchase has lots of good selections They have a good price."
Cons: "The way they board. They have one big long line. Then they heard you down stairs and in to a bus and then you have to board by stairs again. Have they heard of jet ways. The space between seats is minimal."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "The airplane seemed very old, worn, and tired. This makes us feel less safe."
Cons: "flight was delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "Duly Politely"
Cons: "During two hours flying, they didn't serve free drinks."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Luggage fee 35€! For first bag! Not included in ticket price was quite deceiving."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, and the alternative was to fly to barcelina and transit flight to rome. At the end i reached rome 13 hours after the original time table. Vouling service in tel aviv and barcelina was not empathic at all."
Cons: "The window seat had no shade and it leaked all over my new jacket . Very disappointed ."
Cons: "They losed our laggage"
