Pros: "Extremely helpful and attentive. The crew volunteered to be on this flight from Madrid in the middle of the Covid pandemic"
Cons: "Best flight I’ve ever had. Need to have this many people on the plane every time"
Cons: "Service very cold and rare to find. For some reason finnair doesn’t announce boarding"
Pros: "Crew great."
Cons: "Seats too close together. Armrest on aisle could not be raised making exit almost impossible."
Pros: "blueberry juice, service and friendliness"
Cons: "no choice of food, little space between the seats, touchscreen and headphones didn't work, for over 8 hours flight this was significant set back"
Cons: "My headphones didn’t work"
Pros: "I enjoy my flight"
Cons: "Again no complains"
Cons: "Flight was delayed,missed connection,lost bag"
Cons: "Same as above. Seats very narrow. But enough leg room"
Pros: "Blueberry juice! I is now my favorite juice."
Cons: "The food was way overcooked!"
Cons: "Staff wasn’t helpful and gave false information"
Pros: "It was a pleasant enough trip. Friendly crew, surprisingly decent food for a flight, and some decent entertainment available, though admittedly my headphones broke within a couple of hours for some reason, but by then I was nearly asleep anyway."
Cons: "It wasn't very comfortable and I had basically no leg room, but then, I sat in economy, so I can't be too surprised by that. Otherwise it was a good flight."
Pros: "The friendly crew, and quiet cabin"
Cons: "The food was too Finnish."
Cons: "No leg room."
Pros: "Service was great. Comfortable seats and the individual tvs made the 8+ hour flight to NY go so quick and easy. I'll definitely fly finnair again!"
Pros: "The airport it's very nice and clean.."
Cons: "The 40 min layover between SVO-HEL and HEL-JFK required security check and walking approx. 30-gate distance. It was well organized, but still straining."
Pros: "Hot towels distributed before meal."
Cons: "Sitting behind me plus the seat across from that in center was an adult with two children going to summer camp in US. There were 40 kids and several counselors on this flight. These two kids were much younger (4 or 5yrs) than any others going to camp. One of the kids could not sit still. The adult behind me sometimes held her in her lap which resulted in pushing on my seatback. While in her own seat the child did not have her seat belt on. Eventually the girl began using her arm rests on either side of the aisle to swing herself. I finally mentioned this and the lack of seat belt fastening to F.A. who said "They're from Latvia. These Eastern Europeans don't think about things the way you and I do." The child was blocking the aisle at times and the F.A. did nothing."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, and I ended up staying in hotel and spending the while next day traveling. It was very unfortunate, I lost 24 hours. But the hotel was nice."
Pros: "They gave us a warm cloth to wash our hands and face at the beginning of the flight. There was a bottle of water there too. We were constantly offered various drinks, especially water. The staff was extremely friendly and each of the flight attendants spoke about 4 languages."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't the best I've seen as of late. It's not a big deal, but it would be nice if they updated it!"
Pros: "In JFK the Finnair staff helped us expedite our connection process (the flight from Helsinki was delayed and we hardly had time to make the connection)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours. It was a miracle we made our connection in JFK."
Pros: "The Finnair representatives at the airport were incredibly nice and helpful."
Cons: "I never made it on the flight because I booked through airfare.com which gives no warning or notices that passports need to be valid for three months after a flight to France. I ended up spending hours on the phone with them constantly being yelled at by their customer service reps."
Pros: "HiFly is awful. Terrible food. Really not much service. It gets you from point A to B ..... but not always. Our return flight was cancelled with no reason given. Instead of a 2pm direct we were put on an 8am with a layover. The only saving grace is that our transatlantic was on Delta, which was amazing."
Cons: "Awful food No service Outsourced both flights to a low budget third party carrier Canceled return flight with no reason or apologies OR compensation (as of this moment) provided"
Cons: "announcement in English hard to understand"
Pros: "Well this was a first for me. The flight was overbooked and some one wanted to go to New York. Finn Air asked me if I would give up my seat they would get me on the next Finn Air flight to Chicago. I did and they even up graded me to business class on the next flight. It was the best flight experience of my life. Great food, hosts, and service. It was very comfortable the entire way."
Cons: "The meal made me sick."
Pros: "There was plenty of room and the food was good."
Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like"
Cons: "Something that was unpleasant was if someone spoke through the announcement system it would be very loud through the headphones if someone is listening to a movie or music"
Pros: "Plane was on time Checked luggage arrived I slept for the duration of the trip which made the 5 hour flight OK."
Cons: "Legroom and seating in general is cramped. But unfortunately that is the case in today's travel experience with US carriers."
Pros: "Food was provided when the flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. I also really liked the text update from kayak about the delay. The airline did not keep me updated but kayak did."
Cons: "The delay when it was already a 6 hour flight. I also was not able to reserve a seat because I had booked through kayak and not with the airline. Finally of the most irritating of all annoyance was that there was no movie. This was an international flight and there was no entertainment. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Pros: "I liked everything about my experience on four Iberia flights. The boarding was fair by groups and they didn't allow people cutting the lines. The planes were new. The food served was very good and had a great variety of tastes to please different cultures. The entertainment system on my seat was awesome!! Customizable music playlist that was All genres of music. The navigational pages were fun and interesting and the movies were current."
Pros: "Staff was nice. Seat was standard."
Cons: "Small movie selection."
Cons: "I booked this through Finnair and it was a British Airways code share .I was unable to get the record locator for BA and could not check in prior to getting to the airport ."
Pros: "The options for music and movies were good, but the poor service provided, at check-in and on board, outweighed any benefit we received from the entertainment."
Cons: "The crew at Barcelona Airport, especially "Javier" (he refused to give his last name or show his badge - he had it turned around) was very rude and unhelpful. We had to go to another desk person to help us who was a bit more polite. The Finnair Customer Service telephone service was completely unhelpful even though this was booked as a Finnair Flight. The crew on board was ok, at best. The food was the poorest we had in both flights we took (we travelled from Barcelona to JFK, New York, and from JFK to YVR, Vancouver). We were most pleased with our flight from New York to Vancouver, with Cathay Pacific, who, by comparison, had very helpful and pleasant staff both at the JFK Airport and on board."
Pros: "I thought the flight attendants were professional and friendly. We landed safely and on time."
Cons: "A nine-hour flight with ancient over-head screens? Great for those not sitting in a window seat, otherwise don't plan on being able to watch the movie. The first being a cartoon by the way. I'm sure the 3 children on board had a great time watching it. 2 bathrooms on a 9-hour flight for the entire coach cabin? One of which was near the front. Can you guess what the plane smelled like by the time we landed? Let's discuss the fact that passengers had to be "shuttled" to the plane because of construction. I paid additional for Group 1 boarding, so great I got to get on the shuttle first. Those that came after me also were the last to board the shuttle and the first to get on the plane. Thanks, American, for showing me again why I use you as a last resort. Had I known it was American and NOT Finnair, as I purchased it, I would have re-thought my purchase."
Pros: "Everything good except getting bag after flight."
Cons: "Took over an hour at baggage claim."
Pros: "On time, good movies, good service."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating, entertainment movies was good and food/snacks was not bad for transatlantic flight from NY to Paris. Seats are cramped, but it is expected."
Cons: "Didn't appreciate the additional charge to select basic seats (not upgraded), not sure if justfly.com is affiliated with Kayak. I found it absurd but read reviews that if you don't select seats you might get bumped off your flight if it's oversold. I didn't take any chances so I paid the additional $29 and yet both my fiancee and I sat way apart. Arriving at the airport to check in, I saw options to select seats which made me upset even though there was nothing next to each other but way more options than online."
Pros: "Very relaxing, enjoyable flight. Entertainment was great with many different options to choose from (music, tv, movie, games). The plane was not full and I had the entire row to myself, making the flight that much more comfortable. Awesome crew that was attentive and friendly. Probably one of the best flights I've ever been on. Thanks!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and clean plane. I liked the ipads and the drinks. It was pretty quick and easy."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence the entire way and as it was a smaller plane you could feel it for most of the flight. The food was also not very good..."
Pros: "For the first time ever I had a flight on British Airways where I did not feel like I wanted to choke somebody at the end of the flight - so I was pleasantly surprised at this particular BA flight."
Cons: "BA gates in NYC are abysmal - the entire terminal is... Why are the restaurants advertising being open to some specific time (well prior to the departure of this flight) yet then have staff holler at you that they are closed when you try to go in well before that time. It would have been very nice to have been able to sit down and have some dinner prior to the flight, but the rudeness of both of the two restaurants and their staff was worthy of the notoriety of NYC attitudes (which I don't generally see in mainstream NYC society)."
Cons: "Ingen underhållning ingen flyginformation otrevlig personal jag kommer inte att flyga Finnair igen. Jag och alla andra fick sitta att stirra på väggen framför oss i 7timmar den spanska personalen ska inte jobba för ett nordiskt flygbolag fy fan Med vänlig hälsning Benny"
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "old B757 aircraft with poor entertainment system, not suitable for long haul flights"
Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "If I'm paying for a trans-atlantic flight (at a fee of $1,000), I shouldn't be stuck on a plane that is used for domestic flights,and thus does not have the space nor the comfort of a larger plane. And, if this flight is not going to offer the amenities accustomed to a typical trans-atlantic flight (such as in-seat TV), then the price should be substantially cheaper. I will be complaining to the airline itself for this, and may not fly this airline again."
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."
Pros: "On the way home i was awake for the whole flight, and found it to be quite good. Had trouble choosing my seat from early check in bit what I got was good. Good good, service great, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Sat on Tarmac for 60 mins"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours"
Pros: "On time, good boarding process."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Left late and had a middle seat"
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."
Pros: "Clean airplane. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Leg room is too small"
Pros: "Everything was generally fine. The flight left about 1 hour late, but the pilot made up the time on the flight and we landed about the same time as originally expected."
Cons: "The crew, particularly the flight attendants were rude and impatient. Have they forgotten their manners?"
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled this flight and then sent one of my two checked luggages to another flight to Newark from Chicago O'Hare and didn't even think to put me and the luggage I left behind on said flight? Either they should have left both and let me deal with it OR send me on a flight."
Cons: "Plane was hot and smelly upon boarding; turbulence on landing caused delay with no updates from pilot"
Cons: "Delayed and had to fly around when getting to Newark. Supposed to land at 11:30 and it’s 1:40am and not even off the plane. Never flying American again."
Pros: "I guess I’m happy they didn’t crash."
Cons: "Wasn’t American Airlines promoting a new plane every week? Did that fall through?"
Pros: "Just one of the crew (a young African American female) was pleasant the rest were mediocre."
Cons: "The wait was horrible, the boarding was delayed and the plane was hot and stuffy. Very bad first experience."
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after boarding because there was some minor mechanical issue on the plane. Also, my video screen didn’t work so I had no way to access the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"
Cons: "Departure gate staff forced passengers to check bags, when there were multiple empty overhead bins on the plane at takeoff. This makes no sense."
Cons: "My flight TO Charlotte was cancelled on Wednesday morning and AA couldn’t find me a flight to CLT on Wednesday so I had to spend 22 hours in the car driving to NC and back. I huge pain!!!"
Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable and there was a good amount of leg room. I was very impressed the flight was not delayed as American is notorious for that."
Cons: "That staff is too strict about what you are holding when boarding the plane."
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Cons: "They damage my luggage both of my suitcases broken and the airline doesn't give me an answer and doesn't want to reimburse me the money I paid for the suitcases. Airline good for nothing."
Cons: "Bought a sandwich which was old ..."
Cons: "American has the smallest seat space out of any airline I have been on and it is heinous."
Cons: "The flight had no pilot assigned to the flight yet the attendants still boarded us. Then we waited on the plane for an hour before exiting the plane. The attendants gave us little information on flight alternatives and when the flight was finally allowed to board again, they did not announce it and so had I not been waiting close by, I would have missed my flight. It was extremely disappointing but not shocking with all the scandals that have occurred this year with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying with them."
Pros: "Terrible delay in plane on tarmac. Just nasty"
Pros: "Crew very quick and efficient in service"
Cons: "Over crowding, boarding is a jungle,"
Pros: "ON TIME"
Cons: "NO ROOM TO BREATHE. AISLE TOO SMALL TO WALK WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AA IS MAKING BILLIONS PER YEAR IN PROFIT. SO CHEAP, YET PRICES ARE SOOOOOOO HIGH"
Pros: "Nice staff, on time"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour. The plane was uncomfortably hot while we taxied. They could have waited to board the flight or served drinks while we waited."
Pros: "Priority boardinf"
Cons: "Being forced to pay extra for seating because no other seats available."
Pros: "Purchased extra legroom -- on time boarding"
Pros: "we left on time and landed early. staff was friendly and kind."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"
Cons: "The usual delays out of O'Hare. This plane was an older plane, but good enough for a medium length flight."
Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"
Cons: "90 minutes sitting on the cramped plane after boarding because of a maintenance issue."
Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."
Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Was asked to keep moving to another check in line. By the time we got to an open kiosk it was too late and the machine said we could no longer check our bags! Just Awful"
Pros: "One of the smoothest flights and landings ever."
Cons: "Each seat doesn't have its own screen. Plane feels older than JetBlue by a lot. First checked bag is not free like JetBlue. WiFi is another additional charge. Overall cost was significantly higher than JetBlue for less value."
Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "The flight was boarded well in advance of takeoff, which was a pleasant surprise. The short flight was smooth and uneventful. I enjoyed a free movie, and then we were back on the ground."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "The flight crew had a sense of humor"
Cons: "That they bearded you like cattle in Cahrlotte"
Cons: "Aircarft could of had mor a/c"
Pros: "the plane was great"
Cons: "the flight was delayed one hour"
Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Seat space was tight"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "I wish I’d have an aisle seat, but flight was full."
Cons: "The food needs some improvement!"
Pros: "The entertainment options are good, the food is good and the aircraft was clean with plenty of plugs for mobile devices."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. Also other than checking boarding passes airline staff don’t help people find their seats or get settled."
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "We had a delay caused by over filling of fuel"
Pros: "BA has really comfortable arrangements and seats."
Cons: "Boarding at Gatwick was a bit slow and disorganized."
Pros: "Crew was mostly attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Had the boarding queues setup and when they got to group 5 they flipped the sign and those of us in front had to go in the back. Once we were in the main queue they opened the 5-9 queue for some privileged traveler and then left it open allowing the back of the queue to become the front."
Pros: "i liked crew's attitudes."
Cons: "No seat choice even at check in time."
Pros: "Meals, crew, movies"
Pros: "Customer service was helpful as they could possibly be.. once you are able to contact them."
Cons: "It was very difficult to contact customer service if the hours are not a time the office in NY, USA is open."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. The plane was clean and prepared with blankets and pillows. Updated movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We missed our connection and british had booked us automatically on the next available flight which was helpful. However--- we paid to pick our seats and we got stuck in both middle seats. I also got skipped on the first round of beverage service. The entire crew was congregated in the middle part and when they finally made their way back to the cabin for trash I asked the flight attendant if I could please get a beverage as I was skipped. He said yes let me gather this trash and ill be back. He never returned. Then everyone was served their meals and I then was also skipped. Flight crew congregated again in the middle and my sister and I had to wave our hands up in the air to grab anyone's attention so I could get my meal. At that point they were out of the vegetarian option and I got a small oh we didn't mean to skip you comment. Pretty disappointed with this flight."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours and lied to the entire time that it would “only be 20 more minutes” while we were just sitting in the plane on a very old, uncomfortable plane"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Because of technical difficulties, we had to get off the plane after having boarded so it left with 1h30 delay. That can happen to everyone though but that's not it. On the plane, after having paid for specific seats, the entertainment system did not work as well as the individual lights despite the crew knowing about it. When we notified them, all they said was "Oh! Someone should've told you. Sorry." The one in charge of the crew offered us champagne but never came back with it. So with my girlfriend, we spent 8 hours from London to NYC in darkness with no entertainment despite having paid for it. Finally, I've been trying to get in touch with customer service for 3 weeks now and I still haven't gotten a hold of anyone."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was average. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "American Airlines always use those old Boeings for flights between Paris and the US. They look so old inside. No modern entertainment. They still have those small screens on the ceiling. No individual entertainment stations. And seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "I was treated with so much disrespect, I wonder why tho. One of the crew members (a plus sized lady) came off to me as racist, she treated everyone else with a smile and cautious attitude but was so fast to tell me off. Would it be a coincident that the rest people are white like herself? I'm never flying BA again."
Cons: "my trip to England was a nightmare starting with American Airlines not being able to find my flight or my name in the system. It was worse on the return from Gatwick. They also couldnt find me in the system and i blame it all on this Kayak travel site. I will never again use Kayak !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my trip was a nightmare."
Pros: "Ground staff in London was amazing! The flight from Barcelona to London was delayed because of weather condition. Once we arrived in London the ground staff made sure all of us (almost 20 people, lots of kids) could get the flight connection to JKF. The shuttle bus was already waiting for us, the ground staff indicated to us the faster way to get to our gate after passing through security checking. Everybody could get the JFK flight!"
Cons: "I'm gluten intolerant and there was no gluten free snack!!! Lunch was served as soon as the plane took off, but for the next 5h of flight nothing else was served. I asked if they had some gluten free snack, they told me there were going to check, but they never got back to me with an answer. I was starving arriving in NY. Aircraft was too old and it didn't have USB charger. And the individuals screens were also too old and had really bad quality for watching movies! It seemed that I was in a flight from 20 years ago!"
Pros: "Excellent service on both British Airways flights. Wonderful people! Comfortable seats, timely boarding process, and good communication from our captain"
Cons: "We lost our in-flight entertainment just a couple hours into the flight... the staff did all they could to try to fix it to no avail, and collected blue cards from all passengers affected. They were very nice. There was nothing they could do."
Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were great"
Pros: "I can't believe how close the seats are. The lady behind me got mad at me for wiggling in my seat. My butt was sore as the seat is so small and the guy next to me had his arm on the console all the time so I had to lean left the whole trip. I couldn't charge my phone for 8 hours of the flight so when I got to JFK my phone was dead. It doesn't heart to put power plugs in every row. This is the 21st century and this is British airways representing great Britain. I guess gb isn't great no more. One more thing I don't eat pork and when the flight attendant offered me dinner she said I only have sausage. Be considerate on passengers that don't eat pork"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, good choice of films. Food was good."
Cons: "There are other airlines with a brand I associate with more. Any airline can get me to London for more or less the same price; I may as well do it with a company that aligns with my view on life."
Pros: "The entertainment selections were awesome."
Cons: "The passenger in front of me reclined so far, he was basically on my lap. It made it difficult to see the screen and eat dinner, which was subpar. The person behind me kept poking me in the back. I couldn't figure out how or why. I could've used more arm rest as both people on either side of me took the arm rest. So basically I was surrounded on all sides by inconsiderate people, who were probably as cramped as I was."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Guy next to me took up half my seat and the staff did nothing Food was awful"
Pros: "The crew was nice in the wake of being delayed for hours."
Cons: "Check in took forever. I wasn't able to check in online and was told "this is the price you pay" when I received word that my wife and I wouldn't be sitting together. Then we went to board far later than we were supposed to. After boarding the plane we sat for easily a half hour not moving with no information. Then find out there is scheduled maintenance which would be another hour. AC was shut off and got hot. Started to deplane but we were in back and didn't make it because they reveresed their decision. Got back on and said we would be leaving shortly. In all we say on the plane over 3 hours prior to take off. Never flying with your company again. Easily the worst experience flying ever."
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "The space, blanket and the staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor The TV stopped working and didn't work for the whole trip I was moved to another seat The refreshment could be more I don't enjoy pre poured 1/2 cup of juice and water."
Pros: "The complimentary meal was very good and a decent amount of food that satisfied my hunger. Free wine."
Cons: "Old old entertainment systems. My TV wasn't working for the first hour of the flight. Crew had to keep restarting the entire plane's entertainment system in order to finally get mine to switch on. Plane was also very old"
Pros: "I disliked that I couldn't check in online. I disliked that they told me I didn't have a seat when I tried to check in"
Cons: "I disliked that I couldn't check in online. I disliked that they told me I didn't have a seat when I tried to check in"
Pros: "Great crew. Super nice and helpful. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Boarding was ok"
Pros: "2 of the flight attendants"
Cons: "The anarchy boarding process. The lack of plugs on the flight. The 2-year-old lap child in the seat with his Mom next to me that kicked, threw, fussed, hit, cried and more through most of the 8-hour flight because somehow a child that big doesn't need his own seat. The lousy, lousy food. The lack of food. The seats that were so tight I couldn't get up to use the lavatory when the inconsiderate woman in front of me put her seat back (and I'm totally average size). The awful entertainment selection. The worn, dirty plane."
Cons: "I had called vayama with whom you booked the flight, 5/28, and asked for seats together with my daughter who was, I THOUGHT, also flying on the same plane as I..I had asked the rep for a specific flight,nAA 105 and was told that it was code shared with mine, IB4611 but, when I looked at the seats 24 hours before the flight, on 6/15, I saw that I had been booked on a totally different plane and different departure terminals . The only thing similar was the departure and arrival times into JFK. I made a long distance call from the UK and got a really obnoxious rep who was very condescending, dismissive and annoyed that I couldn't understand her pronounced accent . When I said, " pardon, could you please repeat that", she was very snippy and snapped at me! No wonder they have such crappy ratings/ reviews. She was absolutely no help whatsoever after I explained that my daughter was visually impaired and HAD to be on the same flight as I, all she told me was that there was no record of the convo I had claimed to have with their rep on 5/28 and then she hung up on me. I will never use kayak again nor its outsourced affiliates . I am pissed, Weibo Benwitz"
Pros: "Both of my flights had no person in the middle seat, so I was able to spread out more in the space which made it much easier to get some sleep, especially on my red eye flight!"
Cons: "No complaints; great service! I'd definitely fly British airways again."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it to NY. Very upset about this because I have no idea when it will be delivered!"
Cons: "The seats are so close together the seats are actually painful. I'm 6 ft tall and my boyfriend is 6 3". A very short lady in front of us leaned all the way back and caused such major discomfort my boyfriend had to push her forward. She then complained even tho she visibly had a lot of space. We requested an upgrade from gate crew and flight crew upon boarding but were told the flight was full even though multiple seats were available. Will not fly British Airways again."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great; very attentive to passengers' needs."
Cons: "Passengers were hanging out by exit door with no regard to rules and were not giving any warnings-this made other passengers anxious. My seat was broken so I could not recline when the passenger in front of me fully reclined. Very unfortunate!"
Pros: "The food was very good. Tarragon chicken."
Cons: "Not large enough seats"
Pros: "We did land OK but JFK was snowed in and this probably caused the many problems we encountered. Iq always have bad luck flying in and out of that airport so I don't completely hold BA accountable. Staff we polite and efficient."
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane for an hour and a half after landing at JFK. On the ground they ran the engines so loudly my husband got a terrible headache. We mentioned the noise problem but were ignored. Once allowed to debark we were crammed into a long cold hall and waited another 1/2 hour before moving towards immigration clearance. To top it off the baggage conveyer system was broken and we waited another 45 minutes before they shut the building down. So we left with no luggage exhausted. One piece of luggage was left back in London. Not pleasant at all. We did get our luggage returned 3 days later. That was good."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Airplane traffic in jfk"
Pros: "The meals and service was very good. Pleasant staff, comfortable seats for economy class. Very good entertainment selection."
Cons: "The charge to select your seats. British Airlines only international flights I've taken that charges for seat selection."
Pros: "The actual Iberian flight to London was uneventful."
Cons: "The single bright spot in this entire travel experience was an American Airlines employees named Rebecca A. This was the worst trip of my life, and I had real fears of missing the once in a lifetime experience of being at my good friends wedding. 1. My original flight plan was to leave on a Saturday afternoon from Salt Lake to Chicago to Madrid to Oviedo. My friends wedding in Spain left little wiggle room for dates. My flights were canceled 3 times, and I was never notified. I was also subsequently dropped from the connecting international flights, all without any notification. I found out at the airport, that the canceled morning flights from Salt lake City to Chicago actually departed. 2. I then basically had to re-book the entire flight and was offered no reimbursement or selected seating for the upgrades I originally purchased. I spent quite a while on the phones to do this, not including the many hours already spent trying to understand and rebook the flight situation. These were confirmed the Friday before I flew out. 3. The new flights left on a Sunday afternoon. I was flying to Dallas, then Madrid, and finally Oviedo. I was notified 2 hours before departure that my Dallas flight would be delayed. Given my previous issues, I quickly looked at all my flight info and realized I would have 10 minutes from landing to now make my connecting flight from Dallas to London. This was impossible. There was no mention from the notification that I would have been stranded in Dallas had I gotten on this plane. Who knows where my luggage would have ended up. 4. This is my 3rd re-booking, and I will ultimately miss almost 2.5 days of my vacation, non-travel time in Spain. 5. The new re-booking is to Dallas to London to Madrid to Oviedo. I am now getting in Late Monday night instead of the original early Sunday afternoon. Again, there is minimal seat help or offerings in the re--booking, and I still have not even left my original destination. Additionally, I have to pay much more for any possible seat upgrades given the last minute options. 6. I decided to just cancel the Oviedo flight and will likely not be reimbursed for my seat. The return trip somehow left off my TSA preapproved status. Normally a minor annoyance that I had to stand in long lines, I was now exhausted from the long list of horrible travel experiences. 7. I would also recommend that seats not recline so far in future airplane builds. I am 5'7''. When the family in front of me leaned teh seats back to full capacity, my knees were immediately hitting the seat for 8 straight hours. This is just bad luck flying and not the airlines fault. However, please remove the full recline ability."
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
Cons: "The crew serving our area were terrible. Don was very rude to my elderly mother. There was a female attendant with long blond hair who was rude to another woman who was making a kindly statement. I would not choose American Airlines again given another choice."
Cons: "It really cut it short in the transfer from my Bcn-London flight to the London-NY one. Otherwise everything was pretty good, except the handling of luggage at arrival that was oddly delayed like in spurts. But the service people on ground were very helpful."
This was not an Iberia Flight, this was a LEVEL flight (even if you, Kayak, sold it to me as Iberia). The ground hostess was disgraceful, and only because of her nasty behavior towards me and my family, I am planning not to fly LEVEL ever again. I am not sure I will fly through Kayak either. Because of your deceptive techniques, I thought I was buying a flight with luggge included, but I wasn’t. I had to pay 550 euros extra in luggage. Are you, Kayak, going to return this money to me? That would be elegant. And also because of your deceptive techniques, I thought I was flying Iberia, but I was not, it was Level. It turns out Iberia does take cats on board, but level does not. So once I was at the airport ready to fly with my cat, I was told cats cannot fly level. Overall, a sad and aweful experience.
Cons: "Food, all flights—ugh!! Basically bad school lunches."
Cons: "Seats are too close together, very uncomfortable for long international flight"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Pros: "The pilot did an excellent job navigating through rough weather."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess, too many special groups, and then the masses get in and it just becomes a zoo inside the plane. There are so many charges, flying these days is really not better than taking a local bus."
Cons: "Too many people and little space to move"
Pros: "Great food on this long haul flight. Business class lounge was nice. On time flight."
Cons: "Very slow & chaotic boarding process."
Pros: "Everything. Perfect flight, service, food and Ann early arrival. All great. Memorable."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about Iberia"
Cons: "I paid extra to book early so I could be assure of a seat with a view and so I could sit with my husband. Iberia charged my credit card 55.00 for the service and then, without my knowledge Iberia changed my seats and denied charging me extra. I have papers to prove my claim and will dispute the charges with my credit card company. The communication between flight attendants and passengers was horrible. Those of us who had not eaten yet (about half the plane in economy seating) watched the flight attendants bring out extra bread to all of the other economy passengers who had already received their meals, while we, who had not eaten yet, watched. My husband inquired if we were also receiving meals. He was told that everyone would eventually receive a meal. Horrible customer service, the worst ever. Later, before landing the pilot cancelled beverage and snack service because of possible weather conditions but never put the seat belt sign on until we began our decent. Nothing made any sense. It was like a crazy person was in charge. I would not trust Iberia to take me anywhere in the future."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."
Pros: "Flight to our destination: sat in exit row for extra cost. I was freezing cold and was told no extra blankets. Also staff were rude and unhelpful telling us to remove all things from the floor for take off and landing ( which i accept is the policy) but since we had nowhere to put them except on our laps (she’s, books, sweaters pocket book) as there is no seat in front for an exit row to put under. The staff member kept saying “up, up” motioning with her hand, but made no offer to assist us in finding overhead space. Upon our return flight, our pre booked exit row seats were switched on us right before boarding in a rude and matter of fact wayand my husband and I were separated one on either side of the aircraft. When we queried this, we were told it would be up to us to switch with the person sitting next to us. Overall very disappointing. I would not fly Iberia again."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Had to take a flight to New York 2 days later, then drive back home"
Pros: "crew members were nice."
Cons: "They switched someone into my seat and didn't give me a new seat. It was very hot in the airplane making it very uncomfortable. They also forgot to take my tray before landing and I had to hold it in my lap."
Pros: "Crew are helpful"
Cons: "The tight space especially in seated with a big lady and inconsiderate person in front of me"
Pros: "Overall was good but had lost luggage"
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "Food terrible."

Cons: "The stewardess spilled coffee on my leg and didnt apologize. then after bumped me in the head with her elbow and did not apologize."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 hours. No apologies. Nothing. Interesting thing: NYC to Madrid, 3 hours late, missed connection, no apologies., nothing One week later: Madrid to NYC: 3 hours late, no apologies, nothing. IBERIA AIRLINES: Never again!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. They need to load back to front."
Cons: "We were delayed two hours after boarding while the ventilation system was repaired. Some people got water...others not. We were the one not given water."

Pros: "Small, easy airport. Less picky security than some."
Cons: "Older, more worn-out plane."

Pros: "Seating was very comfortable. Good food and beverages. Was offered beer and wine as well with our meal. Extensive selection of entertainment at seat."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing. No overhead signs to indicate boarding groups. Announcements were hard to hear. Stewards were hard to contact mid-flight to ask for water to drink. A long flight, and it would have been nice to have more available."
Cons: "The customer service people were the least sympathetic and least helpful people I have ever met. They did nothing to accommodate us."
Pros: "Surprisingly more leg room"
Cons: "The plane was filthy. Crew members didn't seem to care to take care of passengers. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "service on the flight was excellent pilot helpful and informative about weather and delays"
Cons: "once we got to the airport (JFK)- Iberia ran the flight, we waited over 3 hours (yes 3 hours) for our luggage with very little information about why it was delayed some said security, some said weather we got announcement that it would be there in 15 min then monmentarily but we still waited 2 more hours this experience- esp the poor information in addition to the wait really tainted my expereince. I would not fly Iberia again and recommend that FinnAir not affiliate with them"
Pros: "The staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "We were on the plane for 2 hours before we were offered any drinks (soda, water, etc.) The seats were quite small ( I'm average sized.) and I often felt as if I were slipping off the seat. The aircraft was very warm with poor airflow."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was over two hours delayed; flight attendants mostly ignored economy cabin, closed the curtains and chatted in their little area, and took a really long to respond to calls for attention to get water etc."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Mediocre food choices."
Pros: "Each seat had its own entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "We didn't get our boarding pass for the connection flight which caused a lot of problems when we got to NY. The airline attendant didn't say there was a problem with out itinerary. We found out until we got to NY and we were giving our luggage to Iberia for our connection. The person there said we were in the wrong airport! We had just landed there and our connection was leaving from there too JFK! He said there was nothing he could do and he sent us to the other airline counter to see if they would help us!"
Pros: "Flight run smooth and they treat us well."
Cons: "No information about 2 hours delay, no tv, old plane, no service, food disgusting. One of the worst flight ever"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Seats are very good and food"
Cons: "Held in jet way for 15 minutes for crew to open doors (hot). One crew member constantly bumping seat or me"
3 hours delay 2 hours waiting in the airplane!! And unfortunately then changing airplane because of technical problems Very bad experience Looking for your compensation !
I missed my flight on Wednesday at 6 and was told I just lost my money and that I would have to purchase new tickets without getting a credit. So, I spent another $800 for the next day to fly out at 6am and when we got there, they split my family up due to overbooking. They did not offer any help with food or anything. When asked if I wanted to just get my money back, I said yes and then was told that it was not an option and would have to wait 10 hours to fly out on next flight. Over all this was the worst flight experience ever.
1.5 hours delay, NOT ACCEPTABLE
Cleanliness, they could adapt the noise level of the speakers to human ears, and same thing for temperature.
Sooooooooo long. We were late and boarding was long
Great staff, easy boarding
Cons: "Seats far too small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew with neither rude nor particularly welcoming."
Cons: "When did vueling stop offering a free snack and drink. Not even a glass of water for your passengers is just plain inhospitable."
Pros: "Nothing wouldn’t fly with them again"
Cons: "Nicer behaviour from crew, smile is easy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with very little information given by the crew. There was a 15 min delay getting off due to there being no airbridge and no information from the crew. There was very little legroom. The seat in front was broken and kept collapsing on my legs"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and polite. Seats were comfortable enough for economy."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take and incredibly long time."
Cons: "The booking did not include my luggage despite buying the most expensive version of the fare. When I spoke to customer service, the could do nothing. I filed a complaint and will seek recompense further up."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "Food selection was not available"
Cons: "Did not get to this flight due to cancellation from the initial flight"
Pros: "Seat comfortable, crew do their best"
Cons: "be on time!!"
Pros: "The airline was terrific, despite being delayed we really did board and arrive at our destination in quite good time. The Italian stewardesses were absolutely charming and offered their services extensively."
Cons: "Loved that me and my travel conpanion go to sit beside one another, and somehow we’re at the very front of the plane together in seats 1B & 1C Prime location. Overall had a very pleasant experience with Vueling 10/10 would fly with again."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The ground crew was pleasant and helpful, especially in meeting the needs of handicapped passengers."
Cons: "You have to pay for anything you consume in the way of food and drink... even a glass of water to take a pill. My wife and I fly frequently and this will be our last time to fly Veuling. Other than the lack of any free beverages, the legroom is minimal, there is no TV and no electronic recharging at the seats."
Pros: "Key to long haul flight is keeping everyone happy without forcing them to sleep. On a westbound flight arriving at night you want to get on the target timezone asap, this flight is the FIRST that really allowed me to do that without conflicting with people who don't know how to manage jet lag. The dimmable large windows and comfortable seat make it more comfortable. A/V with 3D map, online lunch ordering, being able to see outside without the bright sun bothering anyone, all worked well. +100 I was skeptical of the a la carte food & beverage service, without any regular service, especially on a long haul flight, but it seems to be much less hassle for stewards and frees up passengers to eat when they want. the food selection was meager and overpriced though. video system worked well, fortunately I found one good one, had all the trick play (replay, captions) so, ok, given meager selection. after 12 hour, people are tired, but few were visibly annoyed or crabby."
Cons: "They didn't have place to put garbage on the airplane, we tried to stuff it in the bathroom once, we just left the rest in the empty seat next to us. Spanish airports don't have good queue management, only two boarding classes, makeshift line. People crowd the gate making it seem like they'r about to get on next confusing the people who actually are next."
Pros: "The flight was OK"
Cons: "It was delayed almost one hour."
Cons: "vueling is the worst airlines ever"
Pros: "Crew was nice and provided water while flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight delay without reason clearly stated."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Checking line with no information, rude customer services, cabin crew very rude and discriminatory system, the flight attendant in charge of the cabin crew made us moved our Carry on three row far from our seats, despite the fact that we paid more for those seats and that we were among the first to board the plane. He made a racist facial expression toward us."
Pros: "On time, one carry on and personal item for free onboard, clean - no complaints"
Pros: "I presume that because I'm old they treated me special even though I didn't request any special help."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was not notified or rerouted."
Cons: "It got deleyed i missed a bus because of that. It goy delayed because of a error with some luggage from other flight thatbwas sent to that flight."
Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "crew excellent and after much discussion they performed miracles"
Cons: "wife is disabled,told she had aisle seat,staff on board had to shift her 3 times,we were booked in together but sat apart on both trips,full marks to the cabin crew who really did a great job of moving people around but we had no help from last minute.com and less from the airline when we phoned in regard to my wifes mobility scooter.sorry its back to Easy jet."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Was made to put case into the hold at the gate, they said there wasn't enough room on the plane, got on, there was loads of space and loads of cases. Got to Barcelona and my Kipling monkey had been removed from case, either in Birmingham or Barcelona."
Pros: "Ryanair, easyjet et al are the big fish in this pond, but the two times I've flown with vueling has been better than all my experiences with the others. Nice to see an airline whose staff looks like it actualy cares about customer service. Thanks a lot!"
Pros: "Nothing !!"
Cons: "No snaks, no food, no water and no reclining seats. Vueling wants to sell you everything. Is like going to the mall. My family give you F"
Cons: "The check in line was too long with too few attendants checking people in."
Pros: "Was an ok flight for a budget airline"
Cons: "I'd booked it and paid more as it was supposed to be British Airways. This was rather misleading by kayak as I booked with them via the British airways website then forward to vueling. Could have paid less if I'd chosen vueling from the options."
Cons: "Sits are not comfortable"
Cons: "seats were awful-- very thin cushioning"
Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hours"
Cons: "First of all we were delayed an hour with no explanation or apology, the service was poor at best, and after all the trouble they managed to lose my bag as well . Two thumbs DOWN"
Cons: "Small. Narrow seats. Late flight"
Cons: "They lied to us that the connection flight from Barcelona to Tel Aviv was canceled and therefore we must stay at Granada. They also said they could not fly us to Barcelona because all the hotels there were full occupancy (sounds absurd). Only after we insisted on flying to Barcelona we discovered that the flight to Tel Aviv took place as usual. To this day, I do not know why an airline needs to lie in such an ugly way. Note that this was not a misunderstanding or language difficulties. The English of the airline team and mine is excellent. This behavior is dismissive, irresponsible, and embarrassing"
Pros: "Clean plane and bathrooms. Smooth flight. Communicative captain."
Cons: "At times crew seemed so aloof that I felt I was bothering them just by being there. Flight was delayed (just like the Vueling flight that made me miss my connection the day before which is why I was on this flight to begin with)."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Delay for 21/2hours"
Cons: "Annoying woman who talked loudly for three hours :)"
Cons: "seats were really tight with little leg room. A long walk from security to the gate"
Pros: "On time, friendly staff at the airport and on board."
Cons: "Too hot on the ground after boarding, waiting for so long and no one explain what's going on. Captain on tbe spesker was too loud."
