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."

Boarding involved making everyone wait standing up for more than twenty five minutes corralled into as corner."

Pros: "Evriting"
Pros: "Super comfortable the seats and staff"
Cons: "Nothing it was great."
Pros: "Nothing, pretty much"
Cons: "I was told my hand luggage needed to go to the cargo, despite it being small enough to be with me. The food was a water bottle and chips. There was more than an hour late to boarding time. The crew were not informative about what was going on. The plane made worrying noises when taking off."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "For a long flight . Your entertainment SUCKS. Never again will I fly with you guys . Ever ever ever"
Cons: "Check in was slow but not crowded and they lost my and other 20 passengers’ suitcases! No information was given about why and we still don’t have any information. AirSerbia does not respond do emails or calls."
Pros: "Ehhhhh I was cool with certain things but nothing to like . The people who work there were nice though."
Cons: "The selection of movies . Very poor . What entertainment?"
Pros: "The plane was an airbus, nothing to rave about nothing also to complain about. It got us there safely and relatively speaking on time after a later inbound arrival."
Cons: "The process of check in was terrible could not do so on line at least in Berlin. It is possible elsewhere in the system. Long and slow line for check in and then long and slow line for passport control and security, but we survived it. Advice is arrive early, you will need the time."

Cons: "Food"
Cons: "they charged me for baggage when it was supposed to be included"
Cons: "the flight was lite more than 30 minutes. Economy class - you have to pay for the meal? Are they Low Cost Company or ? If so, just tell us like that. Prices are among the highest in the region and all you get is a glass of water and a small bag of snacks."
Pros: "I didn't get to my AirSerbia flight."
Cons: "I didn't get to my AirSerbia flight."
Pros: "My isle seat"
Cons: "Studardess were very unpleasant,2 times they passed my row,had to take out garbage by myself. Same movies were played on both flights (I had round trip)"
Pros: "Air Serbia did the best they could to keep passengers comfortable and send all of us to hotel during the day w food and comfortable accommodation"
Cons: "Arms rest are pretty small"
Cons: "Couldn't log in online because site wouldn't accept any of my credit cards. Got up early to check in at the airport, discovered I was logged in... After all that, the airline changed my seat without warning, moving me from the window seat I selected (and paid for) to a middle seat. Where did they get the idea I would think that was OK? Then the flight was delayed, almost missed my connection. Boarding and exiting the aircraft were zoos. Eminently unrepeatable."
Cons: "I almost died without watter due"
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft"
Pros: "Nice service."
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Same moves for months.no new choices Small sandwich for lunch, not near Seet in front of me broken an d. In my nees"

Pros: "I like it was fun"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "It was great experience clean, new plane, smilung staff, flight on time. Quick boarding although the flight was full. Much nicer than Swiss"
Pros: "I requested a special meal. It wasn't delivered. I had called Air Serbia days before my travel to confirm that, and the lady said it was. Unfortunatley, there is no way for me to lookbthat information online. Even the gate agent wasn't able to look that informationmout, and told me it will be there. I simply had to go with 'belief' that my special meal would be there. They did not have any other options . The food they served was so unpalatable that I threw up. I threw up in a plastic bag, as opposed to a barf bag. I didnt have time to get it out from the seat pocket. When I called the flight attendant for assistsnce, she was so rude in pointing that I should have used the barf bag and not a plastic bag. Very unempathetic. They did not check on me after that. The flight was so hot, and too crammed. Old plane. The entertainment was unentertaining. I would never fly this airline again."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "No entertainment No food for vegetarians"
Cons: "Afrer a day I am still in Pittsburgh!!!"

Cons: "It was very cold in airplane. Bad food. No covers. No tv"
Pros: "Great. ON TIME!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, nice plane with lots of leg room, flight was nice apart from near landing. Food was good with a free drink too."
Cons: "We were told to go to a desk for boarding car which we walked for some time to get too and were then told to go to the gate and they would give us a boarding card then. Much walking for no reason. They need to communicate with each other and customers more."
Cons: "The fact that I tried for nearly a week to CANCEL the flight. Yet was given no help, after sending email after email, making sure that I covered whatever was possible on my side. And of course, no response. Ended up forced to simply not attend the flight. Thanks a lot for a GREAT customer support, AirSerbia... (being cynical here, just making sure I do what I can so you get this)"
Pros: "As mentioned many times, they are more professional than JAT, but still looong way to go."
Cons: "They upgraded their system, but it fails when it comes to payments. They should definitely replace turbo props with jets."
Pros: "crew was great , very friendly"
Cons: "tv sound didn't work"
Cons: "We boarded our flight from gate C7, which as is common in Eastern Europe, a bus gate. To enter the gate, we were completely rescreened, although we had been screened to go from Bucharest to Belgrade. We waited on the bus for 15 minutes. Only a few seats on the bus so it is a standup experience. Finally the bus started driving to the parked planes, but turned away and drove to a where you would exit the bus after arriving. They told everyone to go upstairs where they explained that there was a "technical problem" on then plane and it would be delayed an hour. They sent everyone to gate A4a, where everyone was prescreened again. We waited in a hot gate for an hour, then boarded the bus and to make a long story short, we arrived in Zagreb 1 and a quarter hours late."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I am almost 2 meter tall (6'4) and I asked more than 30 days before the flight to receive a seat with extra room for the legs, I was told that the flight was fully booked and there are no seat that are available. I then asked for the same in the check-in and received a similar answer. When I arrived to the plain I saw that I can't seat because there is no space so I asked the flight crew to try and find a solution but they said they can't do nothing. Only after I insisted and spoke with the cabin manager they checked and found a place - in fact there were 2 seats with extra room for the legs that were available!! and the flight had many other open seats (they just lied about it). A lot of the personal television did not work and the crew did not assist and did not solve the problem, but just said that this happens and that they can't do anything. This is just ridicolus for a more than 8 hours flight! The airconditioning did not work properly and it was exteremly hot. In general it was an horrible experience, the crew was very unpleasent and did not want to help and the food was just disgusting. I do not recommend to anyone to fly with Air Serbia, you better pay the extra money and fly with a real company."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Food was very tasty. Staff was responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Chairs have very little recline and the entertainment system comes in the form of an iPad you have to request."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "I had to run as fast as I could to catch my connecting flight in Abu Dabi. Online it said I had a 1.5 hour layover but when I arrived I had 7 minutes to get to the other side of the airport. They also lost my luggage."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight crew are nice, reasonable service during flight"

Pros: "It was a good flight over all, the service was non-stop"
Cons: "At JFK our pre booked seats were changed , and I had them changed back, there was some BS excuse for that I was questioning a flight attendant as to why the plum brandy wasn't on the menu,(national drink) I was told to fly first class the next time The flight back from Belgrade to JFK. I was told by the same flight attendant (Ana) that I was holding up the line, I was trying to put the carry on luggage over the seats. There was a 40 min delay in landing, the bathrooms were locked, once again the same flight attendant made a big deal of this, that I have to make it quick. The signs for the 1st class , bathroom should not be visible from the economy class seats because it confuses passengers, in the economy class, some of the passengers were sent back and not allowed to use the bathroom."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Very little room amongst the seats. Tiny armrests and little room to move in your seat without disturbing the neighbor. No entertainment"

Cons: "I ordered a cava bottle and it was hot. But rest was ok"
Cons: "The airline accepted our checked baggage, although they already knew that it would not make it to our final destination (Marrakech) on the same day that we would arrive. We had to pay, out of our own pockets, for the inconvenience. Apparently this happens a lot, and it happened to our entire plane"
Pros: "Crew was nice and reliable."
Cons: "Beverages should be complimentary."
Pros: "Tus crew"
Pros: "The food included veal."
Cons: "Departure was 1 hour delayed."
Pros: "Iberia cancelled my incoming flight to Madrid and put me on an earlier one, but refused to let me on the earlier flight to Bilboa, which made a long waiting time!"
Cons: "Todo estuvo excelente!!!"
Cons: "The airplane was super uncomfortable and it was a long flight. I’ve flown with Iberia to Europe in the past and this was my worst experience in terms of comfort."
Pros: "seat empty next to me"
Cons: "food, flight attendants"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "We we’re delayed 3 1/2 hours causing us to miss our flight to San Sebastian. That, in turn, caused us to miss our check in for our hotel that we had already paid for so we ended up spending $300 on nothing."
Pros: "The movie/tv selection was extensive"
Cons: "I’ve never had such a bad meal on a plane. I don’t expect fine dining but I felt sick to my stomach afterward. My flight sat in by the tarmac for an hour. I only made my connection because that flight was also an hour late. Boarding was really chaotic."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The lack of water offers during the flight"
Pros: "Boarding, on time"
Cons: "Not much room in seats. Especially if sest in front gets reclined."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours. Very little explanations. We were herded onto flight and staff at gate were beyond rude and aggressive."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was in bad shape, dirty and the seats were very worn out. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "First time flying El Al. Hopefully my last. They delayed the flight to give three people - two of whom were ladies iver the age of fifty - intensive security screens. I was given one as well. They took my laptop, one of my pbones, my tanlet, and my headphones. This would havr neen bearable if El Al invested in its cabins, but that doesnt seem the case. The headphones provided were similar to models from the 90s (and worked just as well), there was no individual screen for entertainment, and the seats were exceedingly cramped. At least the Wi-Fi was free."
Cons: "crew... food was awful..."
Pros: "Comfort and crew were good,"
Cons: "Delay in takeoff due to equipment repair"
Cons: "Entertainment Screens did not work. Charged for drinks."
Cons: "late departure from boston resulted in late arrival in madrid.More than 12 passengers missed the connecting flight to malaga by about ten minutes. iberia could have delayed the flight to malaga and its customers would have had a much better day."
Pros: "Seats were too crowded. No leg room."
Cons: "Small plane. Poor landing."
Pros: "The entertainment system with movies was great, with plenty of choices and good sound. The crew was very good. Legroom on the seats was good. They kept the temperature in the plane just right. We could board first because we had a 5-year-old child."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour leaving Chicago, and arrived an hour late in Madrid. The screen was not updated in Chicago to let us know what was going on. It's a mass of people at the gate, with very little systematic lining up. One luggage piece did not come out on the carousel in Madrid. We had to wait 1.5 hr at the airport to confirm that they would send it to our Madrid hotel. Hopefully it will come. The food was mediocre. Pasta for dinner with little to no meat. Not even fruit. They are clearly saving money on the food."
Pros: "Smooth boarding Professional and bilingual crew"
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "the flight crew was cordial and efficient. we arrived on time."
Cons: "The planes were older and the seats were not comfortable for the length of the flights."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute due to a hurricane. Both British airlines and Iberian airlines posted conflicting information as to the flight cancellation, hence affecting hotel reservations and proceeding flights. The whole process has been a nightmare. I will have serious reservations booking future flights with either airline. Very disappointed !"
Pros: "Food, entertainment (great monitors), new cabins."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/pescatarian meals available so I literally ate bread rolls for dinner & the tv audio was broken. I paid $40 for 45 MB of WIFI so that I could work and the internet lasted about 10 minutes. i couldn't even send an email within that time. The tv screen itself kept flipping back down to the aisle. Finally, the temperature was freezing & the bathrooms were disgusting."
Pros: "Pilot was great, soft landing, smooth takeoff"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. I appreciated the blanket, headphones, and pillow. One of the staff was very rude to the gentleman next to me because he asked for tea after she passed by with it the first time."
Pros: "Smoothest flight ever"
Cons: "No beverage of any sort offered"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was great also. As the plane wasn't full, I was able to move my seat and have two seats which was lovely. Thank you"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane. I had a jacket on and socks and used two of the blankets and was still cold. I also had tried to contact Iberia to order a special meal, but was not able to get through on the line even though I tried for several days. I also was not able to figure out how to order a meal on-line. I was disappointed with the choices of movies."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "I think they should offer complementary water"
Pros: "Reasonable leg room for a a 6 foot tall passenger"
Cons: "Old planes, pilot didn't communicate at times when he would mess around with engine speed and then increase altitude suddenly. Some passengers were truly scared."
Pros: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent movie selection, ample leg room, clean and new plane, staff was attentive."
Cons: "Food was average, foot rests were hard to operate, alcohol selection was scant, only beer and wine are complimentary, you must pay for spirits in premium economy"
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Cons: "Went well"
Cons: "Seats do not recline. Not even water was offered."
Cons: "The aircraft has air condition problem and they whole flight was extremely HOT!!!! Cabin crew paid very little attention to this until we were 4 hours into the flight and basically said there is nothing I can do. I call for the head of the cabin crew and she took 2 hours to come talk to me. I had to wait for here to come out from her flight nap in the crew quarters."
Pros: "We did not get Kosher meals even so we order it while buying the tickets. The crew was very nice and help us with the kids meal"
Cons: "W"
Cons: "Hard to see how anything could have been done about this, but on my flight every seat was taken (except the one next to me) so I thought I'd have a little extra leg room....NOT!!! Then a 300-lb guy sits in the seat next to me. So for 11 hours I'm trapped by this guy's huge bulk and it was difficult to move my legs around any; very unpleasant. And I paid $45 to get that window seat instead of my original seat that had been randomly assigned!! I wish that airlines provided a couple seats for tall people, because our height is a kind of disability given the cramped seating (which average height people complain about)."
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth landing of the Captain."
Cons: "Service training for the Crews for being more polite and for having smiling face..., please!!! Everyone was angry for hardworking????"
Pros: "Plane was nice and the crew was good, except that the flight left almost an hour late without enough announcements as to what was going on and when we might be leaving."
Cons: "More communications when the flight has been delayed and sitting there."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Bathroom smells very bad My three seats where very dirty and had brown yucky stuff One had a sticky gum on it The cleaning crew should have noticed it"
Cons: "I cancelled the flight within hours of booking and got the ticket refunded three weeks later, not the 5-7 business days they promised, but I never got a refund for the luggage fee. Will do my best to avoid them in the future"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Crew was quite polite and sympatic"
Cons: "The aircrafts is very old and small for all the passengers they put inside, and the food is really bad in quality and taste."
Cons: "The charge for baggage but when i bought the ticket i received that the baggage was included"
Pros: "The crew and service, the overall flight was good."
Cons: "The waiting time, boarding,"
Pros: "Was not full"
Cons: "Out dated plane. Poor boarding process, bad service horrible food"
Cons: "They didn’t even give water without charging for it. Water is a basic need The hidden baggage fees. I was informed at checkin that I wasn’t allowed a checked bag from Amsterdam via Madrid to Miami. It is the first time I have ever flown internationally where you don’t get 1 bag at least to check in. The. The fee was €150 one way to check a bag. I feel that the airport should have disclosed more clearly that the fair did not include luggage. I can understand for some short haul flights people can choose to take luggage but international long haul is just heap and dishonest"
Pros: "Unfortunately there is not one positive thing I can say"
Cons: "The service was Appalling, this is supposed to be an international flight, I asked numerous times for the WiFi as there is no entertainment on a long haul flight. I asked for water and wine and was more than happy to pay the staff kept telling me they would return and didn’t. I’m not sure what they were always in a hurry to do other than to avoid providing good service. This was not the cheapest flight when I booked and this airline should come with a warning, poor service, equally disappointing food no drinks and no entertainment. If I had know this I would have paid more or flown with an airline that has an acceptable standard for an international flight and the service that should be provided. I feel at fault as I didn’t know an airline like this existed. I just thought it’s european and international and it will be fine. I was truly so uncomfortable and upset. On my way home I was charged $150 euro for my bags which I was under the impression my bags were included. There was no stating of this high cost, once again I would have flown with another airline if I knew of this and didn’t pay leaving America as it said my bags were covered. I hope something is done to make sure it’s clear to customers that this is a horrible and basic airline and it wasn’t cheap. I’m disappointed in all involved and have learnt a lesson but I am dreading this flight home I am about to take. Regards Hannah"
Pros: "They we're on time and orderly boarding."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that you Kayak did not put notes in booking about having to buy a SEAT AND TO PAY FOR HAVING TO PAY FOR CHECKING A BAG. YOU NEED TO TELL PEOPLE UP FRONT WHEN WE BUY A TICKET THAT IS A LOW PRICE ALL THESE EXTRAS HAD TO BE PAID. PLUS THE TICKET COUNTER DOES NOT TAKE PAYMENT FOR BAGS IN MARCO POLO AIRPORT. I HAD TO HO UPSTAIRS TO A SEPARATE COMPANY AND WAIT TO PAY! ON TOP OF THAT. THE AGENTS CHECKING HAD A BAD COMPUTER. 2 AGENTS TO CHECK IN 120 PEOPLE. I KNOW YOU WON'T GIVE THIS INFO OUT SO I WILL NEVER USE YOUR SERVICE AGAIN."

Cons: "The inflight TV monitors didn't work."
Pros: "Good seating space."
Cons: "Food & drinks are expensive, but we brought our own."
Cons: "Boarding process was horrible and some of the staff were very rude"
Cons: "The company offers onboard entertainment but we have to pay extra for the headphones, ridiculous ! Just add $3 to the flight tickets but don't charge us money for stupid made in China headphones for God's sake ! Next time British Airways or Air France for me no more Air Europa. Moreover: In Madrid just before boarding to Miami, a guy from Air Euopa asked me some questions regarding my stay in the U.S.. That is NOT his business ! "How long are you going to stay in the U.S." ? This is NOT his business ! His job is to check if my passport is OK with my boarding pass, that's all ! Abuse of power or he has no clue what he was doing."
Cons: "I had to pay for a sandwich and a drink. Absurd. Just add 10 euro to the flight tickets and i'll be glad to pay but don't charge me extra for a sandwich for God's sake ! Next time I'll choose British Airways or Air France."
Cons: "After 2 days at the airport I still waiting for the airline to give me a date and new time for another flight since the airport is having problems after the storms on Wednesday, they don’t have a counter or anything where travelers can ask questions and have problems solve. They keep making you come but with no guarantee of anything. No one knows nothing, it’s very bad the way they are managing the situation."
Cons: "I missed my connection because of the insane delay on the first flight."
Cons: "Our flight attendant did not smile ONCE! At check in , we had the good fortune to be carrying exceptionally small carryons. However, two passengers had bags that appeared regulation, but apparently were not. These two people were treated like criminals. I’ll never fly Air Europa again."
Cons: "We had to board this plane the old fashion way on the runway carrying your bags and everything. Very uncomfortable and no help. It also was very disappointed to be charged €60 per each piece of luggage returning to Madrid even though they had not charged for the same luggage coming into our destination. The lady at the counter was very cut and dry and was not helpful at all. This was a round trip, no explanation on the overcharged is acceptable. Kayak should warn their customers if luggage charges are going to be added."
Pros: "Cost effective, easy to access airport."
Cons: "Boarding should be streamlined, by groups, in an efficient manner. Currently, every passenger crowds the terminal in an attempt to be first."
Pros: "The airplane was clean, and the staff were correct and professional."
Cons: "The seating is very tight. I also didn't appreciate the ongoing videos on the main screens, many of which were distracting in a negative way. Boarding was also a bit chaotic. Rather than call us to the plane by rows, we were asked to form two lines, right at the moment of boarding, and the passengers all had to scramble together and jostle our way through."
Cons: "When I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my flight as directed there were zero Air Europa staff there. I waited 20 disconcerting me minutes for them to arrive."
Pros: "None"
Pros: "Overall the flight was fine."
Cons: "My connection in Madrid was bad. I arrived at gate E82 and had to get to A8. Terminals are laid out sequentially and it was quite a walk, with a passport check before the B terminal. Even with an hour and a half layover I had no time to spare going straight there."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good proportion of quality-price for the airfare."
Cons: "In BCN airport, too few counter clerks to deal with a long line of passengers boarding for multiple flights."
Pros: "It was an ok flight."
Cons: "The line at the airport, there were no tv for movies or entertainment of any kind (besides paying for an iPad or internet), and the chair didnt laid back."
Pros: "We had no problems with boarding on time or checking our bags. Some reviews were upset about the in-flight entertainment (or lack thereof) but Netflix has a download option now and I pre-planned and binged an entire series on the flight. I didn't eat the food on the trip to Europe but on the way home I had the veggie pasta, wine, coffee and the pizza snack and it was all basically on par with other airplane food I've had. The attendants were also all fantastic and polite and helpful."
Cons: "The seats could be more comfortable and I don't love paying to choose my seat but these are small things in the grand scheme of it all."
Pros: "One of the best international flights I have taken. Comfortable (as much as a plane can be for 9 hours), good food and service, lots of free movie options."
Pros: "Great value for the money, pleasant crew, good food, and comfortable seating."
Cons: "In flight entertainment limited to a few small TVs in the center."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I bought 2 tickets at the same time for me and my wife and the sat us separately 10 rows apart from each other. Its stupid they dont let you choose your own seats. Also paying for the bag was another long process and had to go to 3 sepparate counters because Air Europa required a different procedure. Pilots necer announced upcomig turbulence and the landing was horrible. Old and uncomfortable seatbelts. Ive been on 3 flights this week and this was by far the worst. Wont be flying Air Europa in the future."
Pros: "I book this flight 1 hour before take off because TAP Portugal screw me over and didn't want to put me on the next flight since I missed my first one because of a delay due to the storm in another airport. SCREW TAP PORTUGAL NEVER FLY WITH THEM:"
Cons: "When I booked my flight it was not at all clear that I had to pay for checked luggage, therefore I had to pay extra when I arrived at the airport. Please make it clear from the very beginning that checked luggage is not included. Easy Jet does a great job of this, giving you the option to pay for a checked bag when buying your ticket. With Air Europa, I had no idea at all."
Cons: "Space between seats very uncomfortable. Planes very old."
Cons: "After trying several times and calling the airline, hearing everything was ok... It wasn't. When I showed up at the counter to check in luggage, not inly I was not checked in for the flight but also I had to pay a counter fare for not including the lugagge in the check in on line... . Although very polite, airport personel could not help ne with the provlem created by the airline. No explanation so far to the reason I was not able to check in on line and save 30 Euros... Next time I am flying Iberia. Same price, better service."
Pros: "Overall the experience was pleasant, once we figured out that things were fine. The crew was friendly and the seats are better than United Airline."
Cons: "We arrived at JFK early 4 hours before departure, and there was no sign and no one to ask questions. The check-in did not start until 2:30 before departure and there was no announcement."
Pros: "Our seats were comfortable. The crew was kind. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The water and juice were hot. The coffee was not good, it didn't had coffee flavor. The ice was very poor. The lights were on the whole flight, we couldn't rest at any time."
Pros: "Liked the boarding process (from back to front)"
Cons: "Crew not friendly, food was mediocre, the entertainment did not work at all"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. All our baggage made it to our finally destination in one piece."
Cons: "We kept getting an error when trying to check-in online. The check-in counter was slow and didn't open until two hours before for an international flight. Even after being checked in they didn't release the gate location until 30 min before takeoff. Surprisingly the flight was still on time and baggage made it."
Pros: "Food was good, service was great. Seemed like a brand new plane."
Cons: "Smelly passengers"
Pros: "Slept almost the entire flight over, from the middle seat."
Cons: "Only a 10kg weight limit, not described well during the ticket purchasing process."
Pros: "Very low ticket price; new plane very quiet; excellent choice of TV shows and films at seat though need to bring own headphones to avoid payment"
Cons: "Online boarding pass rejected at gate, pre-ordered special meal not provided; seat not particularly comfortable; wrong info given before flight about need to go through security again when changing planes in Madrid; flights of stairs on tarmac needed to deplane from transatlantic flight and board international flight in Madrid; in flight announcements in English barely audible"
Pros: "A nice short flight from Barcelona to Madrid. No complaints."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Flight was safe, priced well, included checked baggage, and they didn't nickel and dime you (although if you wanted anything to drink, you would be charged for it). They let you choose seats too without charging extra."
Cons: "To board at Frankfurt, we had to first wait in a room until about 5 minutes before scheduled takeoff time, then everyone loaded into a bus to drive out to the plane on the tarmac, then finally we started to taxi to take off. There didn't appear to be any reason for our delay, other than the fact that the boarding process is as long as it could possibly be (wait in a room, take a bus, then finally walk onto the plane). Not much legroom at all, my knees were pretty much touching the seat in front of me (I'm 6 feet tall). Bags took awhile to get out to baggage claim, and were pretty wet from the rain outside."
Cons: "Plane did not leave on time. We were waiting for 30 minutes for take off and no anoauncement was made. We got nothing in return"
Cons: "Not enough legroom! Flight attendants did not seem interested"
Pros: "No delays.."
Cons: "Attitude of the crew. Poor quality of the food. In cabin noise of engines. Crowded area at boarding gates which blocked access for persons travelling between gates for other flights. No Air Europa staff organizing passenger in the assemble area"
Pros: "The boarding was on time, and quite fast"
Cons: "The seat next to the toilet had no windown. The food was very poor. The crew was no really nice or polite. They lost my laguagge"
Pros: "New, clean, spacious airplane."
Cons: "The meal offering could be better."
Pros: "You can always expect reliable and in time service with Avianca."
Cons: "Outdated aircraft, limited space."
Cons: "Seats cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Booked 1 month in advance... was treated unfairly"
Cons: "I booked one month in asvance and was told that I would be a standby flyer.. even after explaining that I had an international connection flight in madrid. I did not appreciate the added stress this news gave me."
Pros: "The crew was cackling and having fun in the back loudly, meanwhile there was no communication with us as to why we were late or when we would be arriving. When I called one of them over she had no answers and when I told her about our connecting flight she giggled and said I probably wouldn’t make it. We missed our connecting flight and we’re rerouted 4 hours later. We’ve missed our boat to Venice and all we received was an 8 euro lunch voucher."
Cons: "It would have been great to have left on time, arrived on time and caught our flight. I also would have been better if we hadn’t been laughed at and actually aided us to catch our flight."
Cons: "Fly on time, put babies together in one location. Have better food"
Cons: "Shorter lay overs between flights Direct flights from Palma to San senastian"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no announcement was made. The customers should be made aware. I paid extra for a premium seat which was too small for my husband’s knees to fit. He had to sit the whole flight with his knees turned sideways Into the aisle."
Pros: "Well, I liked that I had the aisle seat."
Cons: "It couldve not been 44 minutes late in take off. It was stressful because I reserved a shuttle that would've left me had I been an hour late. And there was no explanation; just copious waste of my time"
Pros: "I was glad that the staff was able to communicate in English. It helps when you're in a foreign country."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Never check in your carry-on if they say there are too many carry-on's on the flight. I saw a lot of Spanish say no when they asked them to, now I know why. I am in Dublin 2days now with NO LUGGAGE or carry on, I have nothing, it all got "misplaced" in transit!"
Cons: "The last seat are located almost inside the toilets. The crew was unhelpful"
Pros: "Entertainment selections were great"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, and they were playing music that was really bad"
Pros: "Iberia is an excellent company to travel."
Pros: "more confort than other companies"
Cons: "be on the plane the connexion was bad and I lost my fly"
Cons: "Delayed ! Lost connection ! Terrible experience"
Cons: "Late boarding, late departure, waited over 30 minutes for bags"
Pros: "boarding was efficient. crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "seats were very close together, not much leg room."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "The airport in Paris"
Pros: "Today was a very early day and making a connecting flight in Madrid to Lisbon was very tight because of a gate change. I was totally convinced that the bags would not make it and they did. Very impressed with Iberia and the efficiency of the staff. The flights were pretty full and everything from take off to landing worked like a charm."
Cons: "I thought when I made the reservation that I had booked two aisle seats but had not and it was hard to sit in the middle seat when you are claustrophobic. Thankfully the flights were short."
Pros: "Puntuales"
Cons: "Durante el vuelo mucho ruido por parte de otros pasajerOs y ningún control por parte del equipo a bordo. Bastante molesto, sobre todo tomando en cuenta que era un vuelo de madrugada donde casi siempre de quiere dormir en el trayecto."
Pros: "The crew was great. We traveled with a two year old and they were very helpful."
Cons: "It was a tight fit."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes, for no apparent reason; and therefore the connecting time at Madrid for me to get my flight to Chicago, which would have been 60 minutes if the flight was on time, was cut down to 30 minutes. And the terminal where the connection was was 25 minutes away -- and this doesn't include time for immigration at Madrid. I had to run all the way, break the queue, and made it though they had shut the gate and had to re-open it. The connections are poorly timed."
Cons: "not sure why we left 30 mins late, we therefore arrived late in MAD and had to literally run to catch our overseas flight. Luggage left behind, no need to say"
Cons: "they book flight connections too close in madrid, resulting in big hassles, especially if passport control is also involved"
Pros: "The staff was amazing!"
Cons: "The seats are very small."
Pros: "Nothing, your flight selection does not flag incorrect airports."
Cons: "When you book through an airline it will flag a different airport from the one you arrive at. We arrived at TFS and the return flight was through TFN. When I called customer service Iberia Airlines rejected any refund and I ended up spending three extra hotels nights and Flights on Air Europa. My total out of losses were nearly $1,500 USD"
Pros: "It was good flight going and returning on time no complaints"
Cons: "The disorganization before the flight st the ticket counter"
Pros: "Good flight, it took less than expected."
Cons: "Cheap food, especially the breakfast."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and easy to travel from SDC to CDG. The crew was very friendly and helpful at the gate and on the aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing. Great crew and easy flight. Connection in Madrid left plenty of time."
Pros: "I got bumped to first in line after they wanted people with only small bags or backpacks to board first."
Cons: "Not really a complaint about Iberia Express as an airline but I hate getting to Berlin Tegel. I took the bus, and it is so hard to stand up with all your luggage on those buses. It's that or a 20 euro taxi ride. At least Madrid airport has a railway line to get into the city."
Cons: "Very poorly managed gate and service for Iberia. Long lines, no organization. Impossible to get any information."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "perfectly and comfortable!"
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Pros: "In general, I have always had great flights when using Iberia; the MAD >NAP flight segments included."
Cons: "Iberia Express uses smaller, Airbus320s and certainly packs passengers in! I'm 6'5"/191cm, and the flight between MAD to NAP almost 3 hours. That's a long time to sit with knees wedged into the unpadded seat in front of you. Window seats have even less room than aisle seats. It also makes things worse when passenger in front wants to fully recline their seat, passenger next to you wants to sprawl out - very claustrophobic! Also, there are no freebies on this flight charging for even a cup of coffee or glass of water!"
Pros: "not budget airline"
Cons: "sadin cabin..."
Cons: "The stewardess kept on hitting my husband who due to crammed seats could not fit."
Pros: "Respectful flight attendants, flight was on time. It was perfect."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The seats and service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was good, the pilot was great."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Iberia has been consistently late in arrival. I missed my connecting flight on the way out to spain and nearly missed a connecting flight returning to the USA. I had to literally sprint to the gate. My bags never made it to the states with me. I am still waiting for them to return. I don't feel I can take Iberia again for any future flights"
Cons: "atencion al publico, de parte del personal en el aeropuerto en madrid"
Pros: "Flights were on time!"
Cons: "The check-in process was terrible. On-line check-in was impossible. Problems stemmed from ticket being written for multiple carriers compounded with code-sharing issues. Unable to check-in via computer and no phone help on Sunday. When I went to the airport early to check in for flight, they were only able to check-in the first two segments leaving me scrambling in Frankfort to get checked in for Lufthansa flight. Never again!!!!"
Pros: "Timeliness"
Pros: "My carry on luggage did not arrive on the plan but finally was delivered at home complete and safe. Thanks a lot Iberia"
Cons: "That the carry on luggage was taken to the luggage area"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The legroom"
Pros: "We went from A to B."
Cons: "Nobody spoke any english, ONLY SPANISH. The seats were extremelly tight, we were offered nothing, not even water, and there were 4-5 girls in the plane yelling to each other about something that had happened and they had to kick out one of their friends and no one would tell them to be quiet."
