It was more the fault of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and the entire experience was a circus.
Enjoy food could be better plus again some wipes to clean hands before meals
Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on plane on ground for 4 hours then missed connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the food was really good, the plane was clean, and they used reusable silverware and plates to avoid waste."
Pros: "Orderly boarding process. Considerate reseating when bulkhead with extra legroom were not usable."
Pros: "The food was the best I've had on any airline in recent times. On the first flight it was a croissant and a swiss chocolate, on the second flight it was a hot danish pastry."
Cons: "The first flight was late so I was worried I'd miss my connection (however connection was delayed too so I made it). Also, I was asked to check in my bag because "the aircraft was full" however when I got on the plane I noticed it was half-empty and there would have been ample overhead room."
Pros: "Hospitality was wonderful. The food and drinks were great and the constant entertainment made the 10+ hour flight bearable."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable but there is definitely not enough leg room especially if you are sitting in the middle seat. There should be some type of incentive given if you get stuck sitting between two complete strangers."
Pros: "Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding is confusing. Bad lines, unorganized, and people pushing. They should probably come up with a better system."
Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The aircraft was horrible No space at all even after paying for a better seat"
Cons: "Too hot. Too late. Staff could have been more accommodating. Online checkin was impossible."
Pros: "TV screens and movies. Food was great."
Pros: "Crew was great. Ice cream was fun. Swiss chocolate was a nice surprise!"
Cons: "Short flight with no entertainment, no means to charge devices."
Pros: "Nothing about it"
Cons: "They didn't even take us!"
Pros: "Overall everything was great"
Cons: "carry-on baggage procedure not clear. deal with this issue upfront, not at end when cost is 3x more so Swiss can make more money this way."
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to denver"
Pros: "on time, quiet, nice screen, fast luggage delivery"
Cons: "no foot step available at the seat, uncomfortable for small people who’s heels can’t reach the floor"
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "service, food and chocolate"
Pros: "clean, very new plane friendly staff"
Pros: "No problems to report. Boston to Zurich in under seven hours."
Pros: "Service and food where good."
Cons: "Sound only came out of one side of head phones, tried multiple sets."
Pros: "They waited for us. We came in late and had to connect to this flight and they waited the 10 min for me and 8 other passengers. Very grateful for that. Service and food was amazing!"
Pros: "staff was very nice"
Pros: "On time; everyone friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Friendly and high quality service"
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Pros: "On time departure; easy flight; seating was spacious"
Cons: "The extra charge for a bag!!!!!!!!!!! Would rather fly Southwest or Jet Blue or others that allow a mid size carry on"
Pros: "Swiss took care of your mistake, booked on subsequent flight."
Cons: "No idea a you never actually delivered a ticket. Flight over sold, Swiss had no record of the booking. KAYAK screwed up."
Pros: "not enough room, everything hastily delivered"
Cons: "- late in arrival - 2h late in departure - lost my luggage"
Pros: "Crew and people were fabulous!"
Cons: "LONG lines at check in. Almost missed flight even being there 90 mins early."
Pros: "Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother."
Pros: "Not anything to rave about. The in-flight entertainment was bland - fortunately the flight was only 2 hours. There were various TV screens that could be seen, but no way to listen. In this case it wasn't a loss because I noticed that they were showing cartoons, even though there were no children on board. The snack was a simple sandwich, a little smaller than the size of a hotdog bun. Supposedly it was an artesian Swiss sandwich, but I think they could have done better. Overall, I'm happy with Swiss Air, and would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Staff was gracious and accommodating for whatever we needed. It felt much better than typical economy class. It made the 8 hour plus flight quite manageable."
Pros: "They put us in a nice hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 1 hour and it was overbooked. So they put us on a united flight for today. This flight is also overbooked."
Pros: "Check in, crew were friendly enough"
Cons: "Worst food ever, vegetarian so called wraps and breakfast. Bland eggs and rotten fruit salad. The fact that when I request a window seat and am told I have one then to find out I don't. Rather tell me that in the first place. This has happened numerous times with swiss. Remote for the entertainment didn't work and although crew said they would reset it they never did. A bit of a pain for a long haul flight of 8 hours...."
Pros: "I don't think I'd ever experienced such a friendly and empathetic crew."
Cons: "Security was a disaster in Amsterdam. Lines were long and they were checking everything - e.g. My bag had to be screened 2x because of my Kindle, which never happens. But the crew was Extremely accommodating and helpful."
Pros: "I never used Swiss Airline before but my friends told me crews are very professional and clean... She is right!!!Their crews, Foods, and very clean environments.... had a wonderful experiences"
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"
Pros: "I like that this plane had more leg room then other airlines."
Pros: "Easy and comfortable. Service was good and with a smile. The planes were clean and arrived on time for my connection."
Cons: "The WC was so small I could barely even stand in it."
Pros: "I got business class upgrade, so everything was pretty much awesome. Also, Swiss Air gives you a fun little bag as a souvenir."
Pros: "Crew brilliant but seat very tight"
Cons: "Boarding procedure slow and hectic"
Cons: "Security in Frankfurt - long lines"
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and entertainment"
Pros: "The airline and the flight were pretty good"
Cons: "DONT SHOW BAGAGE INCLUDED ON A BOOKING WHEN ITS ONLY INCLUDED FOR 1 WAY! I HAD TO SHELL OUT 40 EURO TO CHECK MY BAG BECAUSE OF THIS!"

Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. Boarding was very chaotic."
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Pros: "Friendly crew, great food, comfy seats"
Pros: "Was nice and pleasurable"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Airport is too hot"

Pros: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."

Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Pros: "The change in seat to middle seat, different row for my wife and I was enough for me to think again about a ticket with you"
Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."
Pros: "Great service. Friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration of the biz class seats. They are in a row vs in pods. Not as private as other configurations."
Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"
Pros: "the on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"
Pros: "Overall experience was great. Crew was nice, good food, boarding went smooth, flight was on time."
Cons: "This flight went well, crew was nice, flight was on time ."

Cons: "Check-in process. Baggage fees."
Pros: "Staff were amazingly helpful n friendly. Food was yummy."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane loaded late then waited on the tarmac, arrived an hour later than scheduled time. This has happened to me on every one of the ten Lufthansa flights I have been on. Apparently they don't know what it is to be on-time."
Cons: "None of the flights arrived on schedule. That caused other problems. Overall the trip was terrible. Not sure if I will fly lufthansa again nor recommen."
Pros: "Flight was an hour delayed for no reason. I missed my connection that I had 2.5 hours to catch"
Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"

Cons: "What's not to likr?"
Cons: "Was a short flight , so really I don't have any negative impression"
Pros: "They held the gate for us as we got there about 14 minutes before departure."
Pros: "Great service both before boarding the plane and while in flight. The check in line was out of control, but lufthansa staff members ensured that I could still make my flight."
Pros: "Air dolomiti - great service, prosecco in a real glass and with small sandwich provided."
Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"

Cons: "I can't think of anything to complain about for European commuter flights."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Both Lufthansa and United's boarding announcements fail to account for passengers' impatience and neglect of boarding group procedure. Lufthansa doesn't clearly identify when un-prioritized groups should begin to board. United should make clear that unspecified group members attempting to board prematurely will be held to the back of the queue for their appropriate group."
Pros: "On time and smooth"
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Cons: "Service, always delay"
Pros: "The food was nice and the stewardess were professional."
Cons: "My ticket didn't specifically say I'm not allowed to have check-in luggage, so I needed to pay extra for that. I also got too little transfer time and barely made it because my flight arrived late. Then, my luggage got lost during the transfer, so I had to wait for 5 hours, which made my plans a mess. Overall not satisfied with my flight"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They packed us on another one 3 hours later. Crying babies, bad food and uncomfortable, squishy seats made the flight unpleasant."
Pros: "We arrived in London ahead of time. We go to Newark ahead of time"

Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."

Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "It was absolutely on time. Great!"
Cons: "The meal is always too spicy and for more south Asian style. I prefer more European meal."
Cons: "Hotel was rubbish"
Pros: "Just expect the bare basics: - thin lightweight seats without adjustment - Limited legroom - no entertainment - pay for food and drinks Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding staff was rude Bus transport from plane to terminal"
Pros: "Everything ran on time."
Cons: "Understand sometimes out of airlines control but reduce delays"
Pros: "Smooth boarding/ de-planing ; everything was on time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and definitely enjoyed the selection of movies. Plus I was surprised with how much food and drinks were offered by this airline. It was great especially the ice cream treat."

Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seats are too congested"
Pros: "Flight was very brief so not much to evaluate"
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane but there was time to make up the lost time however it seemed no one was in charge. We were not even told of the problem until the flight was already 30 min late. Then there did not seem to be a plan to fix things. The flight was 1 hour and 15 min late meaning we miss our great connection."
Cons: "This flight boarded late without any notice to passengers which caused us to be late into our connecting flight."
Pros: "The captain made a very smooth landing in extremely poor conditions."
Cons: "Everything you don't get in business class. Since the flight was only 40 minutes, I put up with it."
Cons: "One world premium member, last seat next to the bathroom, rude check in staff who we’re highly unhelpful saying they had no authority to help and to use ba.com for customer service issues and outrageous checked bag fees €75. Never again BA."
Pros: "Nothing, nothing. At all."
Cons: "After hours at the gate, the flight was finally deemed cancelled. I missed my layover and was forced to stay over night at a airport hotel. I had paid a change fee to come home specifically for that day which I lost, not to mention 9 hours in the airport... the flights for the following day were totally downgraded from my original booking. Was so upset I could have cried...."
Cons: "We where not able to take the fligth's due to a passport issue, according to Netherlands rules my passport should be valid 90 days before entering the country and my expired July 29, 2018, when i booked no one advised me of such rules. I'm trying to contact Brittish Airways to see if I can be refunded."
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Pros: "The video was hilarious Crew were chatty, friendly, but professional Great, clean environment that felt very safe Everything was spiffy"
Pros: "Crew were nice and helpful"
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "Upon arriving at the check in desk we were told that a member of our party had been removed from the flight. While trying to work out a solution with the attendants they were incredibly unhelpful, knew very little about the situation, and at times mocked us. Lisa at the AMS location was particularly rude to the members of our party."
Pros: "Crew and aircraft are fantastic. ."
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The crew had to do a hard reset of the entertainment system. Unfortunately it took more than 1.5 hours into the flights because the first reset did not work and the crew was busy with other things."
Cons: "The flight got delayed 1:30 hours, because they had to change planes in London and we were wating in Amsterdam. We didn't aboard fast since there was no space for the hand luggage so they had to send the luggage to the belly of the plane at tha last minute. Definetly the worst fligth ever!!!"
Pros: "I love it the most that they are so helpful with excess baggage Which is why I always book with BA I am an entertainer working for many different cruise lines BA does not rob you blind if you have extra baggage Or your bags are slightly heavier ! Delta recently charged me $ 285 per extra bag Coming back BA charged me $90 and allowed me two bags The new policy on many airlines to literally rob a customer Is disgusting and the govt authorities should put a stop To it BA is welcoming and always professional !"
Cons: "Airline food is often risky to eat and The variety is poor especially if you are vegan"
Cons: "The boarding process could be better"
Cons: "The ground crew at check-in was not friendly nor helpful."
Pros: "Food was actually quite good"
Cons: "Issues with online purchase of extra baggage"
Pros: "the staff was nice"
Pros: "Nice clean new plane. Courteous cabin personnel"
Cons: "Nothing served, not even water or tea, unless you pay for it. No entertainment."
Cons: "Extremely long delay and the crew didn't explain until half way to London why the flight was so delayed. Horrible service"
Pros: "Food good."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff due to customer replanting and hunt for their luggage. Noisy children throughout flight. Unable to nap due to noise."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and attentive and I was mostly comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding smooth enough, seats comfy enough"
Cons: "Checked bags line insanely long, gate MILES away from security checkpoint, no food or entertainment (why low rating, n/a), could always use more legroom, paid more for bags than for flight and taking bags was a huge hassle and worry"
Pros: "There seemed to be more leg room then other international flights. They fed us 2 meals and a snack and kept bringing around juice and water."
Cons: "delays, loud drunk in boarding area in Amsterdam that had been removed from his flight,"
Pros: "Even flight was delayed, all was well with excellent service."
Cons: "The only issue I had was having to check my bag. I didn't feel it was necessary."
Pros: "Quick and a clean aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing special to say"
Pros: "I didn't pay to reserve a seat ahead of time, and was a little apprehensive. I checked in about 23 hours before the flight and was assigned an aisle seat with no problems."
Cons: "Once we boarded the plane, we spent about a half hour on the ground before take off. This isn't reassuring when you have a connecting flight."
Pros: "I missed my connection to Los Angeles which had major consequences for me in terms of work related issues and pick up complications."
We purchased Premium Economy, and everything is good except when passengers in front seat lay down to sleep the back seat passengers would have very hard time to stand up and get out .
The food was ok, but not great. The full meal was good, the sandwich late in the flight was not good. The seats needed to be pushed to the recline or upright positions, they would not move without forceful help.
Wheelchair assistance from Aa counter to gate never materialized
Boarding was a mess. Organization and personnel assistance in both airports, Barcelona and Gatwick, were absent. Once check-in were completed, the rest was much better.
Everything is good the flight attendant of very friendly
My original flight had been canceled and they got me on a better flight with a shorter layover. I spoke to Roger on the customer service line and he was wonderful.
We got hit with surprise baggage fees because the baggage structure was entirely unclear -- we even looked for how to book bags with Iberia ahead of time. Also, we didn't know that the first flight would be entirely operated by Level. Two flights and neither operated by Iberia. That's fine, but it would have been helpful to know ahead of time.
Pros: "The atendió"
Cons: "El embarque"
Pros: "The entertainment was nice!"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "A quick, quiet and relaxing flight - no stress at all. The flight was uneventful. My carry on bag had to be stored in the bottom of the aircraft as the overhead lockers in the aircraft are small. As such - just before you board the aircraft, you place your carryon bag at the bottom of the steps and then when you get off at your destination, you collect your carry on bag at the bottom of the steps - no time wasted and worked easily."
Cons: "The English announcements were a little hard to hear/understand as the flight attendant read it so fast - but then again - it was a short flight - so every second counts :-)"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible, like they never done that before. They do not offer even just a glass of water- nothing."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok, had holl rodarte options and good variety"
Cons: "Seats are hard, no leg space, no elbow space, the upright is 90degrees. The crew is not helpful, to the point and act like they are doing you a favor by being there. In one instance the attendant told a passenger "you can move your bag, or I will move it for you." To another passenger, without prev"
Cons: "Todo estuvo excelente!!!"
Pros: "Thw crew were amezing, with a lot of patient. The entertainment was graet. The seats were graet.7;"
Pros: "We arrived on time!"
Cons: "Checking in and dropping off luggage was a nightmare... There was no one at the check in desks indicated on the screens or the check in terminals. Eventually I found a desk at a different location that would take my bag. Boarding was chaotic, no lines, just a crowd blocking access. Even passengers with small children couldn't get through. Space between seats was minimal. Crew was ordering passengers to take headphones off during security demo. I understand it is important to be attentive, but ultimately you shouldn't be forced to."
Pros: "Great food on this long haul flight. Business class lounge was nice. On time flight."
Cons: "Very slow & chaotic boarding process."
Cons: "When I purchased the ticket I was never told that there was no allowance for luggage. Usually, this flights give you @ least (1) piece of luggage for free. In this case they charged the first piece 50 dollars and the second one $200.00.- After I paid 1500 dollars for (1) plane ticket , it is unheard that there is not even one piece of luggage for free. When I booked the flight there was nothing on the site about this. This was my first and last time buying a tickets from you guys. The fact that the fare was 200 dollars cheaper than other sites, ended up costing, 300 more. Never again with you guys."
Pros: "Two hour flight, with nice crew. Entertainment on board with a good selection is based on wifi and your ownd device. On time"
Cons: "Food is not free. If you want some, pay for it (what nowadays is normal). Leg space was tight for me"
Pros: "Boarding was excellent and crew also food was good."
Cons: "Seats to small. Like sardines for 8 hours. Almost no leg room"
Pros: "Same as the first flight. Great luggage transfer."

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "-Uncomfortable seats. -Old plane-- broken baggage door produced delay of over an hour. Zero accommodations were made for us to make our connecting flight at London Heathrow, scheduled for 2 hours from the anticipated arrival time.

Cons: "didnt get support for connecting flight. Flight was delayed in run way making us miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "Check in personnel were able to place me in the 3rd row where the seat pitch was poor but not as bad as the rows farther back. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "This was return part of my journey. The LHR to MAD leg of my journey was extremely painful. I was unable to pay online or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time online or on the phone. Even in the 3rd row it was difficult to fit my thigh length in the seat pitch. I had to sit with my legs splayed and with one leg in the aisle. My leg was constantly hit by luggage, pax, and cabin crew. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. With the short seat pitch emergency evacuation would be very difficult for me and the other pax. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years."
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."

Cons: "Take off was delayed for six hours and Iberia's representative in Madrid told me me missing my train to Valencia is not their problem and Iberia will not reimburse me for the train nor the Iberia flight I had to take to get to Valencia. I've been an Iberia's customer for many years. Horrible customer service and poor airline service. Shame"
Pros: "Crew were really nice and polite"
Cons: "No entertainment, I can't believe how close the seats are to each other. I'm not a very tall person and my knees were hitting the front seat constantly (and the kness of the passenger seating behind me of course)"
Pros: "Missed flight as scheduled changed forward by half an hour and re-organising another flight was difficult. Had to fly from another airport in Spain and transfer was without assistance. Staff did a good job at sorting a solution. The return home on BA was excellent and very efficient."
Pros: "The entertainment was good when it was working"
Cons: "Service was horrible. Announcements were not being made adding to confusion in the cabin"
Pros: "The price,. The plane. The food and the intertanment"

Cons: "While making the reservation online it said that you could declare your luggage when you do online check in 24 hours before your flight and the charge would be 15 euro's per bag or if you wait and do it at the airport it would be 30 euros per bag. I tried numerous times to do the check in before our flight and it kept saying unable to complete. I explained this to the agent at the airport and he still charge us 30 euros per bag."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Checking in and ordering special meal"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Cons: "had a booked flight from madrid to gatwick, london and connection the next day at 11 am to Tampa US. We were at the airport at 1500. Flight was supposed to board at 1820 and leave at 1850. When checking the board, the flight's boarding was anticipated to 1810. We were at the gate at 1815 and there was an electronic sign signaling "boarding". However there was no personal, no line of waiting passengers and no plane. Upon checking we were told that the plane had already left. (this was at 1828). The only way to make our connection in london was a flight to Heathrow later with BA. Then we had to get a taxi to get to gatwick. Will never fly Iberia again."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. Not even water was offered."
