Limited food choices and poor quality
Made us miss our connecting flight
Boarding process was disjointed and weird. Understaffed desk at gate and resulting overwhelm precluded any boarding announcements! Flight itself was fine, with good crew and adequate service. On time with no major delays.
Boarded late and then sat on plane for 45 minutes because of a clerical error...whatever that means. Then only one truck to deice plane, adding more time to our take off.

Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Delta scheduled us a connection with only 35 min of layover. We had to go from Concourse E to A and the plane was several min late.We barely made it before the gate closed 10 min before pushback."
Pros: "New airplanes.On time schedule .Very professional a"
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"

Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Long wait in hot plane before take off."
Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."

For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."

Cons: "I had paid extra to pick seats and they were moved without informing me prior to the flight."

Cons: "Horrible food, very small, cramped seats. The cabin was extremely cold, even with my jacket on."

Pros: "food was great"
Cons: "gate changed and we gad to take the bus to the plane which lead to sn delay and almost the plane couldn't leave before the airport closed. however, we eventually made it ..."
Cons: "Leg room on the 747 was ok. The service was average considering i had to keep asking the staff to atore my son's insuline medication in a cool place, they said they cannot at 1st but eventually they did. The entertainment system had to be rebooted 3 times during the flight which takes 15 to 20 minutes. So it took 3 hrs to finish the movie. The connection flight was a bit redicilous, 1 hr to walk to the other terminal in frankfurt, the 1 hr flight delay , the boarding was like a zoo, no initiative to take control and organize the boarding, the elderly and the children and crammed withe other passengers.."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."
Pros: "I liked how smoothly the boarding process was at O'Hare."
Cons: "I didn't like that with a window seat, my area for my feet was diminished by some metal box. Also the entertainment options were severely lacking for adults. Only thing to watch in English were highlights. I had to turn to Children's entertainment. Plus, my screen froze at one point after being hard to function. The flight overall was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to pilot strike."
Pros: "excellent seats, service, food, entertainment."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"

Cons: "1 After long stand the line when i want to check in my Luggage i got shocking news According to checkin counter lady said Flight delay more than 2hours and can be 3hours no body knows how long will be delay, she recommended me to go from San Francisco to san jose airport to get another flight. it's time Enough she said , that time about 1pm, i am lucky that i arrived SF airport 3hours in advance so that i could manage to catch up another flight at the san jose airport, i had to go san jose airport from San Francisco by Taxi and the cost was 170usd because driver says over 50mils far a way i need to pay 50% more, i have a alot import meeting in germany, meeting schedule could be mess i was really shocking, how can i get back Taxi fee usd170??? 2. regards to Crew., one Passenger was collecting his handy carry luggage at Cabinet and he forgot to close Cabinet cover after he collected and it was opened that time one flight crew passing by to final check up before landing but don't see that cabinet door open, so one of passenger talk to her to close the Cabinet door, also handy carry luggage after used the passenger should Keep Under the chair for safety but even passenger keept (put) in her beside empty seat, the Crew don't say anything, it was many people keept in next empty seat area. According to rull must keep it under seat, but crew don't say anything I was very very surprised. it's very Dangerous to everybody people may hurt , i was very Scared and nervous. 3. in the dark room passenger can't see or feels that behind them whether crew come or not (passing by or not) Crew passing by and hit passenger but without saying sorry and just go a way. it's impossible... 4. i was standing at Exit door and look at the outside but same time crew came and said to me not friendly and without smile "Excuse me" and i go a way, i saw she crew want to put something inside at dress room. what i want to say the crew could be more nice and smiley face to passenger or could be nice can be wait 5 seconds but was really the way of tone is Racist, this is what i felt, really bad."
Cons: "seats are way too close to each other."
Pros: "The crew were very professional and accomodating."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line"
Cons: "I was seated next to a family with an autistic child. Because they had checked in late, they were seated separately. The autistic child was unsetted by having to sit separated from both parents, causing quite a commotion during the whole flight. I couldn't rest during the whole flight. Lufthansa should do a better job with accommodating the needs of special cases like this, preferably when they book the flight or before they board. SFO boarding was slow and confusing. There was a backup being caused by having to seat 6 or more passengers in a wheelchair. Then, I followed signs for boarding in Economy, which was at the front of the A380. I was forced to the aisles to the back of the plane, where I prompty collided with other passengers that were boarding the rear entrance of the plane. Why wasn't I just asked to board from the rear entrance to avoid the congestion?"
Pros: "Great flights. No problems. Used a different company to schedule my return flight and having trouble with them. Wish I'd stuck with Kayak!"
The crew members were wonderfully responsive to requests such as a Kosher meal when we forgot to order it in advance. While it was not available on the PHX to London flight, the steward found one for me on the London to Tel Aviv leg of my journey. In any event, the stewardess on that first flight took the time to explain to me why there were no extra Kosher meals. Both parts of my travel were very comfortable. Sylvia D.
Cons: "I booked flight for my parents from Kayak for the first time. The confirmation number was: KAYAK Booking Reference KE40651 British Airways Record Locator 3IMN38 Booking Date Jan 24, 2021 So British airways cancelled the flight may days before the flight date and they notified Kayak but Kayak sent me no notification. At the time of check in we found that the flight was cancelled. It was such a hassle. I called kayak to rebook frantically since it was very important to travel right away. Your customer service was pathetic. I was told to cancel my british airways reservation and then I have to wait 24 hours for another department to call me to talk to me about rebooking choices. There was no concern from your customer service that since u are at fault so make correction for it right away by rebooking it. You guys didnt inform us for cancellation of the flight that happened days before the flight. I didnt like what Kayak rep was telling me and called British airways again to see if they would do something. They then were able to rebook me the following day with 2 stops instead of one stop which I had booked. So my parents took the flight with one day delay with extra stops. I had such a horrible experience with Kayak. I will never rebook from Kayak again."
Cons: "Excellent legroom, unlike flight out with American Airlines. I was just unlucky in choice of seat"
Cons: "At BA staff treats you inconsistent"

Pros: "The crew was super nice and very helpful!!! Wine included was awesome."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. My TV screen kept going in and out. We"
Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was supposed to have a handicap chair in London & did not so things were difficult for me."
Pros: "Breakfast burritos were a nice change."
Cons: "I did not like a seat under E row as the seats feel. Crammed."
Cons: "This BA flight has been a mainstay for those of us in Phoenix to fly nonstop to Europe for years . Always on time . Good service . Dreaded the flight back on American flight ( via British Air). Was pleasantly surprised with a new Dreamliner which made the BA Boeing seem quite old and shabby."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was good, service was great Good entertainment"
Cons: "The Boeing 747-400 is absolutely the WORST designed aircraft ever — Business Class cubicles are cramped with no spaces for placing items, etc. And, this was after the very worst boarding procedures!"
Pros: "The only positive is that you don't have to worry about missing your flight due to the fact LHR isn't in the Schengen zone so there's no hangup at passport control during your connection."
Cons: "From check-in to flight attendants snotty attitude and a bunch of control freaks. Service and amenities inferior to other airlines."
Pros: "Liked the big plane. Didn't particularly like the food. And although enough alcohol was offered, I thought we didn't get enough to drink to stay hydrated. ( I meant water/thee)"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection out of London heathrow to Budapest."

Cons: "Missed flight due to incompetence"
Pros: "I liked that the flight crew were very friendly and helpful. The food was also pretty good overall"
Cons: "Cancellations and delays before my flight were horrible. The staff on the phone were rude and not helpful at all after waiting over an hour to speak with them."
Cons: "1. Plane engine set fire while taking off... leaking fuel. 2. My bag fee was waived, but the next day after being grounded and put in a cheap hotel for the night, I was RECHARGED $100. 3. They knew my flight left at 9pm, still gave me ONLY 1 hotel voucher so I was kicked out of the hotel at 12pm with NOWHERE to go for NINE HOURS with 125lbs of luggage. 4. They provided a good voucher, but the cheap hotel they put me in didn't have a kitchen, USELESS. 5. The flight was LATE getting to London the next day and I missed my BRITISH Airway connecting flight to Thailand. Had to wait another 7 HOURS to get a flight out. 6. Terrible service, over priced and rude agents. The agent told me " I don't know who waived your fee yesterday, but I'm not." Cold, considering the plane I was on the day before was shooting fire about to explode. 7. I was rebooked no choice of seating or consideration."
Pros: "Everything was absolutely spot on except for larger than average people not being catered for."
Cons: "Being a big lad (6'6") it was difficult to get comfortable even with the extra leg room."
Pros: "Excellent flight."
Cons: "Cramped and no free tea/coffee"
Pros: "The flight and everything associated with it. Food, crew etc"
Cons: "Customer services failed me"
Pros: "Oh my gosh.... I had the best flight ever. I wanted to be in Business Class, but the flight was so full, but when I sat down, there was an EMPTY SEAT next to me. What a beautiful thing. Flight was great, quiet and comfortable. Boarding was great and I enjoyed the my flight. Thank you:)"
Cons: "No WiFi available. Bad flight tracker."
Pros: "The cabin crew member working in the area where I sat, Marc, went above and beyond his duties to make the family sitting next to me feel comfortable. Two of the children had special needs, and Marc brought the family chocolate, joking with the kids, and was available when they needed help. Well done."
Cons: "The entertainment would sometimes pause, and the screen would go black for a moment. This was very minor though."
Pros: "Nice Staff, flight on time, good customer service (they're British)!"
Cons: "Diminishing space for the human passenger, tight legroom, seats lay back, which is great if you are in one and terrible if you are behind one. And it was hot. Two years in a row. At 30,000 feet, where it's 30 below outside."
Pros: "The pilot was great and got us to our destination and the bags came out quickly."
Cons: "There are no outlets for charging on this outdated flight and the seatbelt were dirty with crusty food. The TV was surprisingly tiny...like the smallest I've ever seen. The check in was also awful. The person that checked us in had no mercy. He made me shift around my bag for .8 kg"
Pros: "Not enough room in the seating area"
Pros: "The quality of the food was amazing. Flight attendants were very helpful and pleasant. The movie options were also wonderful."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to get comfortable. The lights that shine from above us were shining directly on me for a row behind me and for the person sitting on my left. Boarding was somewhat unorganized as there were people boarding in 2 areas."
Pros: "Flight crew was really polite. Very attentive and remembered what was requested."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Seats were really tiny. Crammed in, in all directions"
Pros: "Crew were nice and friendly. Flight left a little late but made up the time even after the big IT disaster of the day before."
Cons: "Small seats with too much recline of person in front. An odd and chaotic method for boarding."
Pros: "Mostly everything was ok."
Cons: "I received water only once (plus coffe/tea option and small juice for breakfast). I needed to ask for water, i've also heard others asking for."
Pros: "Flights attend"
Pros: "Just the right amount of flight time and arriving early in the morning. Dreamliner makes the flight much easier. Always get either 3rd or 7th row seats with window bed and free access to isle."
Cons: "Usually starts late sometimes in London, and always on some remote gate."
Cons: "Flying is uncomfortable and painful. The seats are thin with little padding. I kept getting poked and prodded by the person in the seat behind me, and it wasn't even a little kid kicking the seat. I have a problem with my foot, and there is piece of hard plastic or something that runs the length of the plane, under the aisle seat. I had to make sure my foot didn't rest on time because it was painful to my foot."
Pros: "It was a short flight but the plane and staff were amazing."
Cons: "Tried to change my return flight from Phoenix to Miami. Typical Legacy rigid inflexibility made it impossible."
Cons: "Old airplane, on one chair the seatbelt didn't work, on the next chair it didn't have the cushion."
Pros: "No estaba muy lleno, la comida bien"
Cons: "La tripulación no hablaba español, sin variedad de películas en Español o subtituladas. Ninguna ayuda con los niños, a pesar del vuelo venir demorado casi 3 h, pedimos que le sirvan ( en el momento que empezó la cena) a nuestra hija de 6 años y nos dijero que esperáramos como todos, ya eran las 11:00 pm para ella, al final se durmió y no ceno. Las maletas llegaron abiertas."
Pros: "Everything was great during the flight."
Cons: "Immigration in Boston took 1+ hour standing in line and get through."
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was late, that happens. There was no sufficient information about it though. Boarding was badly organized (could not hear BA staff yelling through the crowd). The 1000-year old 747s are really inconvenient and you could not believe how small the seating space is. To dot the i, of course we missed our connecting flight and got no information about it, again, only after running across half of Heathrow... About missing the connecting flight: it could have been avoidable with just a minimal amont of effort, or willingness, or any sign of care towards the passengers. Customer service is waaaaay behind my expectations."
Pros: "Food was good and drink selection was great."
Cons: "Personal TV screen had some visual issues. Headrest wouldn't retain its position."
Pros: "Hard to find anything positive."
Cons: "Each leg of the trip was delayed by so much that I missed each following connection. Got to Prague and found out my luggage had been lost. After filing a claim about 8:30 pm on the 19th, I had to take a taxi into town because my hotel car had been taken out of service for the night. Rotten trip to Prague."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "All good."
Cons: "I counted on the airline to scedule enough time on the layover in London. We had a delay and then we had to run to plane. And the luggage made it to us two days later."
Pros: "The crew and the flight went smooth"
Cons: "The food was terrible... My foodt from london to houston was also terrible."
Pros: "Lovely staff, new plane, great entertainment options"
Pros: "I booked an aisle seat and they did not honour it at checking"
Pros: "The Air Canada Rouge crew was young, efficient & courteous; seats were good; and it was the only direct flight that I can get that day, at a convenient time during the daytime."
Cons: "Better entertainment ( u can only get them streamed to your own device), and maybe a bit better food."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "How late the flight was but they gave us a coupon to make up for it"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "It was incredibly cramped on the plane. Also, despite our ticket saying boarding starting at 2:05, we got there at 2:08 and were among the last people on the plane so there was no room for our luggage."
Pros: "Worst seats of any airline"
Cons: "Worst seats of any airline"

Pros: "the hostesses were friendly. safe flight"
Cons: "they always start at first class with drinks and food , by the time they reach further back your flight is half over, can they not do one cart from front and one from back. I realize we were not in first class but please don't ignore us"
Pros: "We did finally get to our destination."
Cons: "Late flights, missed connection, no ground service"
Cons: "Staff was rude; they seemed more interested in talking to themselves than assisting customers. Air Canada never treats customers properly."
Cons: "The flight from Phoenix to Vancouver was good except for the poor wifi when we were connected to the air canada wifi. Since there is no mini TVs on the back of the seats, you have to connect to their wifi to access shows and movies from your own device which is fine if it works. Tried to watch a movie which had huge problems connecting and the loading signal was on for a large amount of time. Once it had connected to the movie, it had restarted to the beginning about 25 times during watching it. Very disappointing and made it very unenjoyable. Also, right after we boarded, the pilot went on the intercom to tell us the ground crew had a gas spill and had to take extra time to clean it up which led us to sit on the plane for an extra 45 minutes and that led us to miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "It’s Rouge. ‘Nuff said."
Pros: "The pilot made the flight a fast time. The airfare was a good price."
Cons: "The seat leg room was too cramped and the plane was older with a noisy cabin in the rear third area"
Pros: "No entertainment Little to no food or drinks Some crew were rude"
Cons: "For the trip to finish"
Pros: "Airport security was great and the airport pane was clean with a great crew!"
Cons: "Didn’t depart on schedule and then had to wait in Calgary to depart as the gate wasn’t available"
Cons: "I thought I was getting a good deal compared to other airlines but was shocked later to learn I had to pay extra to reserve a seat. When this was added it actually cost more. No entertainment for an 8 hour international flight! Really? Only one checked bag for an international flight. I’ve experienced much better on other airlines."
Pros: "Got a seat. Made it on the flight."
Cons: "My original flight (booked in January) was changed to the following day and there was no notification. So though the first leg was fine, the second flight (Toronto to London) i had to scramble in Toronto to book the flight and get a seat. (50K elite member)."
Pros: "nothing special."
Cons: "nothing horrible."
Pros: "Une catastrophe à tous les niveaux"
Pros: "The crew was fairly friendly. A glass of beverage was offered and water was offered a couple more times."
Cons: "Mddle seat is never fun and is one of my dislikes but I didn't hate it. The choice to opt out of the rating of the food and entertainment is not an option on this survey therefore I give 3 stars because they were only available for purchase and I did not purchase any."
Pros: "Didn't like much about this flight. Only benefit was the price and I wish I would have paid more to fly with someone else."
Cons: "Flew Air Canada to the east coast for a vacation. They lost my bag on the way over. Understandable. Things happen. I reported it missing at the airport. My vacation has come and gone and still no bag. Here we are 9 days later and no update or anything. Their baggage center is a NIGHTMARE. I wait on hold for over an hour each time only to be greeted by someone who couldn't care less about my issues. Every person has told me something different. It is beyond frustrating. Highly doubt I will ever see that bag again."
Pros: "The overall process was painless and the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Seats were very close to the seat in front of you. If you're over 6 foot 1 inch don't fly with them."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "No leg room, very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable seats with enough leg room."
Cons: "Cold air blowing on our seats that apparently could not be turned off - we asked twice. Very crowded in terminal with several flights boarding at same time, didnt know when we were being called up and didnt know which line to be in- very confusing"
Pros: "Seats very hard to sit in for 5 hrs."
Pros: "The seating on the airbus 319 in main cabin is very cramped. Prefer Westjet 737. Will use them in future."
Cons: "We were crammed in with no room to move. no way to get comfortable. Seats not comfortable. Very tight space and not pleasant."
Pros: "Staff were courteous. No problem there."
Cons: "The plane was old and there was little leg room. Should retire it."
Pros: "Everything went well with this trip home, the service was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. A real improvement from earlier Air Canada flights. Flights left on time, a bonus."
Pros: "Good flight everything was pleasant but..."
Cons: "My bag did not arrive for close to 2 hours after we landed. About 15 bags were released on the carousel at an appropriate time and over an hour later the rest of the plane's bags arrived. The staff were not overly concerned. They announced a number of times that the bags were coming, it was almost comical. I have dealt with this before at Pearson I don't understand why it takes large amounts of time to unload bags from the plane? Or why a few bags arrived and the others took 2 hours? I am not sure if Air Canada has any control over this or if it is Pearson's responsibility but I would appreciate if you could forward this complaint to the appropriate folks. Thanks."
Pros: "There was drinks but no snacks like cookies or pretzels. There was no form of entertainment on the plane The lines on the airport was way too long and it was overcrowded"
Pros: "The landing of the aircraft was second to none when we landed in Calgary."
Cons: "The seats we were sitting in were uncomfortable. There seemed to be a ridge near the back of the seat cushion and it was very uncomfortable for the entire trip."
Pros: "Boarding is very slow and disorganized. Plane was unusually noisy. Rouge seats are the WORST very little legroom even by economy standards."
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room and was able to board early"
Cons: "Food not good"
Cons: "No movies or muisc on the plane. No snacks to eat on the plan journey. No entertainment at all!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight,and all the rest was okay."
Cons: "My seat was damaged and it was hard on my neck,unable to rest it as the top part was jutting out."
Pros: "at least a packet of crisps with your drinks of juice and water"
Cons: "no movies and music-earphones"
Pros: "The pilot got us through some pretty heavy turbulence. Good job!"
Cons: "We were waiting in the plane for a couple of hours. They had us then disembark for half an hour and board again. I missed my connection. Air Canada needs to revisit the timetables from Toronto, all the transatlantic flights leave after 16:00, that creates long queues in the airport security and huge delays in cases like mine. I arrived 20 hours after my original flight because of this schedule. Additionally, they did not offer us any food, while the whole process took more than 10 hours. We arrived in Toronto at midnight local, when everything had already closed for the day."
Pros: "Friendly crew members"
Cons: "There was more kids then adults in the plane. The food was terrible, surged too late for a flight to a muslin country with almost everyone fasting on board. Once it was served, left side of the plane was served first while kids on the right side claming their meals and not understanding why they are not getting any. The bathrooms were dirty. No screens on board. The seats bead some upholstery work."
Pros: "Flights were on time and the crew was friendly. Each seat had its own TV with many movies. I liked that the on board menu for food had many options including buying a first class meal."
Cons: "I wish they would give out even little cookies for free or something. Everything is pay for purchase."
Cons: "My sister is still stuck in Paris after she was rerouted there from Toronto to catch a Royal Air Maroc flight. The air canada office closed and the phone line people have failed to ensure that her ticket was paid for so she's been stuck for two days in Paris and traveling a total of three days!!"
Cons: "Did not fly Air Canada from Phoenix to Toronto; flew much cheaper version "Rouge". Flight was delayed more than 40 minutes in Phoenix while cargo rearranged, making us late for connection in Toronto (1.5 hour layover initially). Stewardess told us we could make flight if we ran through airport, but when we got to the gate, we were told that we had been rescheduled on another flight 2 days later! Crew on flight did not tell us this. We did manage to get another flight to Frankfurt 2 hours later on Air Canada, then to Barcelona on Lufthansa, arriving 8 hours later than originally scheduled. Rouge flight had fewer amenities than Southwest and less legroom. Did not know what were getting when booked flight -Will never fly Rouge again!"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about the flight, other than the fact that the crew was compatent."
Cons: "As far as I'm concerned , I didn't fly Air Canada, I flew Air Canada Rouge. Air Canada Rouge is a VERY poor representative of the Air Canada brand. There is NO legroom!!! My seat mate, who is Canadian told me that they reduced the distance by 3 inches from the Air Canada standard. I am not a tall person, I only have a 30 inch inseam, but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Anyone over 6 feet tall would be VERY uncomfortable."
The flight was overbooked by 40 people. We waited for 2 hours after the flight to get news of rebooking. No communication from the ground crew.
Large crowd at the check in and bag drop with slow inefficient staff. Unwilling to help with checking my luggage through to my final destination although it was no problem on the outbound flight (with a different airline also two separate tickets)
Pros: "The onboard store."
Cons: "USB ports. They were off."
Pros: "On time Easy and no issues"
Pros: "Great selection"
Cons: "Bathrooms are not enough"
Cons: "Bags did not make the flight. Served no water or drinks."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Our luggage was not put on the plane and was left behind. It was delayed about 36 hours but when we got it 3 new shots and one perfume was stolen."
Cons: "Infotainment system"
Cons: "The transfer in Madrid was ridiculous. They could not find a bus to transport passengers and no one had any clue."
Cons: "Offer drinks, water"
Pros: "The food included veal."
Cons: "Departure was 1 hour delayed."
Pros: "Dreamliner is great. So we’re the crew"
Cons: "Please serve water at the very least."
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Pros: "The crew was really lovely. They handled a socially challenged passenger with a lot more patience than she probably deserved."
Cons: "I know it's probably not legal to throw passengers out of a moving plane, but I think the flight would have been a lot better without that disruptive lady making multiple scenes. I don't understand how people who behave that way are capable of travel in the first place"
Cons: "Online check in didn’t work."
Pros: "The time arrived at the airport was great"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, had to wait too long for shuttle bus to the terminal."
Pros: "The lunch in the flight back. The service was good."
Cons: "The spaces between seats and the bathrooms. It should be a person checking if it look okay after 2 hours flying."
Pros: "Fast boarding, good entertainment and arrived early"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. Chicken with beAns and mashed potatoes dry."
Pros: "I hate flying with a burning passion, however this 8hr flight back home was more than comfortable! I mean literally, the seats, the entertainment, the cabin crew, even the food (which to my surprise wasn’t as bad as other airlines). The fact that I’m writing this review right now just shows how great of a flight it was! I had no passenger(s) beside me, and it was all around just great!"
Cons: "The ETA of the time fluctuated dramatically, first it said that we will board at 11:40, and then it changed to 11:25 and then we did not board until 11:50, and the flight took off delayed, as well."
Cons: "The plan was too small."
Cons: "No WiFi on a 10 hour flight!"
Cons: "Madrid to Tampa... Got the nursery. Lots of crying babies... must be immigrating to the US. Why don't they put all people with babies at the rear so the rest of us can nap? Not IB's fault, the customs at Miami came to a halt for an hour. 2000 people standing in line, missing connections. There was a shift change, most employees didn't show up for work. was told 'It's a special day'. Fortunately I was at the head of the line. A few of us were routed to someone who was surprised to see US citizens. As a consequence, the always slow MIA failed to transfer my luggage. Still waiting for it... Air travel is such a pain these days. I'm sure more would fly if it wasn't such a hassle."
Cons: "Krew. Comfort srat . Space."
Cons: "Second time they lose my luggage. After 9 hours in the airport they were not able to put my luggage in the right place."
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent entertainment options."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and not enough leg room."
Pros: "Once I made it to the other side of the airport it was good no wi fi on a long flight"
Pros: "Great and on time"
Cons: "Nothing all good"
Pros: "Flight amenities were great! When I discovered my passport was missing at my connection in London, John, the rep made calls to track it down where I left it in the tub at the security check point! He then walked with me to get it and then to re-book my flight since I had missed my scheduled flight......and there was no charge for the new flight! Unheard of in this day and age."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. They need to load back to front."
Pros: "Great flight overall. Good food, pleasant crew. Easy boarding process"
Cons: "they had fancy touch screen TVs that at the beginning of the trip showed all the movie options... They then never activated during the entire transatlantic flight after takeoff."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Absolutely everything. I paid for a seat only to get bumped to the very back of the plane. I waited in line for 30 plus minutes to talk to a gate agent who just ignored everyone in line. Their service is worse than United. You get what you pay for. I will never fly with these clowns again. And I want my $33 back for the seat I didn't get!!!!!"
Pros: "Small, easy airport. Less picky security than some."
Cons: "Older, more worn-out plane."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "They were very unhelpful in flight changes and schedule changes. I was very disappointed in all the travel agents we spoke with. They were all very unhelpful except for one lady who helped change our reservations. I will not be flying Iberia, British Airways, or Americans airlines ever again. My experience was terrible."
Cons: "Flt attendants unnecessarily bossy."
Pros: "Everything was great including staff, entertainment (movie/show options) and luckily an extremely smooth flight."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "I could not cross my legs and my purse would not fit under the seat. Very uncomfortable flight. Fortunately they had a good selection of movies and TV shows to watch"
Pros: "the food and the entertaiment"
Cons: "long trip"
Cons: "The bus to the plane stayed fully packed at the terminal for several minutes. I heard several people start complaining about their heat. The crew at the terminal were brusque. Other than that, the flight was fine. I wasn't offered any food or drink, but once we were flying, there were no additional delays."
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: "Check in and flight were excellent. Didn't use food service."
Cons: "They let me sleep through the free snacks and woke me when they came through with the pay-for snacks"
Pros: "The plane was quiet, the crew was extremely efficient and polite."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I like the food and the fact that you provide us with a pillow and blanket"
Cons: "Everyone who was traveling with someone was separated and the Customes right before the bus were extremely rude."
Pros: "Special ordered meal was good, and seat was comfortable. Movies great!"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized - signage very misleading. Cabin was stuffy and warm until the plane started moving, and during the trip it did not cool off sufficiently. Would be better if they told passengers about when meals will be served. Stewardess poured old coffee in the basin while people were waiting to use the bathroom. Seat was splashed with coffee. Disposal for paper was stuffed. FYI Breakfast was inedible from ORD to Madrid."
Pros: "It was very slow beginning with taxing to the airport and then disembarking. We stood for a very long time before the door opened. Probably the delay getting to a stop when in the taxi mode was due to the airport crowdedness and not the airlines fault."
Pros: "good inflight entertainment selection"
Cons: "preregistered for a designated aisle seat that was confirmed. However I was assigned a middle seat in between two big passenger. Flight was late for arrival due to weather, but we were informed of that only after takeoff despite the fact that they knew it hours before departure."
Pros: "Nothing about my flight was pleasant because of the inconvinience the've put us through"
Cons: "The people from Iberia told us to pay what we had to pay and that they'll give us our money back when we return. They payed me only for the taxi but for anything else. I lost more money than I was expecting and the people returnung the miney back to its clients were so disrespectful I really donmt want to use Iberia again."
