Pros: "The crew was great. Seating was a little uncomfortable."

Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."

Pros: "Timely departure and arrival. Friendly and effect I’ve staff. Despite close connection in Frankfurt, luggage made it with me to Atlanta."

Cons: "Boarded late, departed late, and they made my boyfriend check his standard sized carry on bag at the gate."
Pros: "The food and crew were great.."

Cons: "No volume on entertainment system for our row. But the crew were excellent - very professional, courteous and apologetic."
Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and multilingual crew, frequent offers of food/drinks, good selection of movies"
Cons: "More a problem of the San Francisco airport than the airlines, but getting through passport control/customs involved multiple VERY long, slow-moving lines with very few people working to process the crowds. Then, even though my bags were checked all the way through to my final destination, I had to pick up my luggage and re-check it, and go through security again--and that also seemed poorly organized and/or short-staffed."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding great, honored request for vegan meals"
Cons: "8+ hour flight is difficult with limited leg room- United is spending so much money putting Pod seating (or laying) options up front .... but Economy seats are ridiculous. Clearly we are. It that important. Row 34 window seat has a big metal box so Zero legroom"

Cons: "Nothing. All was good."

Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Pros: "Great service from a super crew. On time."
Pros: "Good aircraft good reception everything good tks"
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. They had 20 crew members."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our final destination of Madrid. It was awful. Also, after many passengers, including us, had fallen asleep, they woke us to put our seat backs up so the people behind us could put their tray tables down."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Pros: "Efficient loading. Flight was on time. Nice crew."
Cons: "The ticketing when purchasing a ticket from NEW YORK is very unclear and even though we wanted a JFK ticket, the NEW YORK search showed a ticket for NEWARK NJ so my step dad ended up going to the JFK airport - An elderly man who has trouble with English and no one was willing to help him to rebook his ticket. Not only that - the Lufthansa people VOIDED his entire ticket including the second leg because the agency wasn't picking up for a rebooking so the entire ticket cost was lost - $1200 - GONE! We couldn't even get him a one way ticket so he could use the return part of the one he bought. This is an absolute customer service disaster. This man lost all his money, he saves up all year to go see his family. That's an ugly way to take advantage of people."
Pros: "My highlight for the travel was the AMAZING flight attendant named JENS. He is a bright soul. Positive, sharp, witty, and humorous. Just what I needed on a 8 hour flight over the Atlantic."
Pros: "the crew kept their smile most of the time."
Cons: "bad weather caused problematic flight to the passangers and the crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "There was at least 4 hours' delay in getting to St. Petersburg, due to the storm, and there was hardly any food or water served while waiting."

Cons: "My wife is 8th month pregnant I felt that the airline should had made accommodations for my wife and unborned child."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Getting to LHR early for. 6:30 am flight was no use since they don't have any departing flights between 11pm and 6 am. So we were stuck in the lobby for hours until ticket agents arrived at 4 am. There was one open coffee shop however. Then we waited for security to arrive at about 4:30 am to get through and it was quite a slow shake down. One through there were no restaurants open until 5-5:30 am. The flight itself was fine. Facilities at Frankfurt were minimal with toilets offering only one stall each. While standing in the long queue a lady and her young daughter were rudely ushered out by the male custodian for cleaning, and then it could not be used for another 10-15 minutes."
Pros: "I was really surprise that the coach seats were comfortable and had plenty of space. Flight was on time and it was easy to check in luggage. I truly enjoyed my 12 hour flight. I will be booking my international flight with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "The on plane entertainment wasn't up to par. Not a lot of selection for sitcoms, if they had a sitcom it was only 1 episode. 12 hour flight I didn't have much to watch after the first 6 hours. Food was ok."
Cons: "Checking in in Tel Aviv was the worst experience I have had in checking in. The ladies just sat there, explained almost nothing, gave no eye contact. Finally, they told me the flight was overbooked and that was why I was waiitng. They offered nothing else--as if I had done something wrong (the impression they gave me), rather than Lufthansa. I waited a full 1 1/2 hours. No other explanation. At the very end, when they finally put me on a flight, they chastised me for not checking in online---this was NEVER offered to me by Lufthansa on my flight there or on the return. With other airlines they always send me an email to check in online ahead of time. Lufthansa did not. I could not have been more disappointed with this checking in experience with Lufthansa. Again, the worst in my life and would be cause for me not to recommend Lufthansa to others. Otherwise, the flight itself and the actual crew were great. So disappointing to have such an unprofessional check in experience."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Body wants to slide forward."
Pros: "Great food options, blanket and pillow, and free movies was the best"
Cons: "The AC was set to way too high temperature. Very uncomfortable. Sweaty and smelly Lufthansa style. I asked to adjust the temperature - the flight attendant said she would . Maybe they fixed it next flight. The temperature is set up by sections. All othe sections were ok except the one with the row 79 in it."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable trip"
Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines
Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."

Pros: "The crew and the food were great!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable. You could tell the plane was a little dated. There was no WiFi and nowhere to charge your devices."
Pros: "The sear was messy they didn't clean it it was full of pieces of bread."
Cons: "boarding the flight on time instead of delaying it two times... and also putting the information at the flight information screen if I haven't gone to ask to the airport information stand I would never know the flight departure gate that was at the complete opposite side of the airport of were the initial flight was going to depart."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"
Cons: "Seats were too close together."
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."

Cons: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Pros: "Crew was ok and servicial"

Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Cons: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"
Pros: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."

Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."

Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."
Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Pros: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Cons: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"

Cons: "Everything went well."
Cons: "They were unfreindly and rude."
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."
Cons: "However, our baggages were 1 day late. Your missing baggages would deliver to you 1 day later, for some maybe 2 days later...Quite a few people said that it's been always like this with air Aeroflot if there is a transfer flight."
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Pros: "Pretty decent"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"

Cons: "Seats were exceedingly close Screens for entertainment were small and game controls were difficult to use"
Cons: "bad smell around my seat"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food is miserable."
Pros: "Food taste"
Cons: "No water at toilet....??? No coffee....??? The the movie’s subtitles were out of time."
Cons: "Boarding process could’ve been organized better to make for a more efficient and speedy journey onto plane."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful! The airport itself is difficult to maneuver in. No information provided regarding the flight. Airport security and police very very rude!"
Pros: "The only salvation was the entertainment choices. ."
Cons: "The planes need to upgrade the seats. When we were served food if the person push their seat back your food tray would flip like two did on our flight. Staff was jaded and sarcastic. I'm glad I had a discounted flight. I'd be angry if I paid full price. Poor staff, seat architecture, and poor food."
Cons: "Good flight, on time. Service ok. Captain did a good job communicating. Nice touch with wine at dinner."
Cons: "The hot dish of meat and rice was not that great, the meat was hard and the rice not tasty."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I am an Asian woman. After seeing the person who is a Caucasian man set next to me used the toile right in front of our seat twice during the flight, I went to use it. Just as I was entering the toilet a flight attendant yelled at me saying: "you can’t use this toilet. It’s for privileged people. You have to go to the end of the aircraft and use that one!" Then 10 minuets later another caucasian man seated behind me went to use the toilet right in front me without any problem."
Cons: "Two TAP flights today. Both flights delayed more than an hour."
Cons: "On any international flight I've been on in the past one checked bag has always been complimentary. This is the first time I was surprised by a checked luggage fee of $85. Considering my wife and I were already at the airport, we had no choice but to pay for our checked bags – resulting in almost $380 in luggage fees for our round trip flights. This restriction was buried on the ticket purchase information – a very sneaky move that cost us significantly. Won't be flying TAP Air Portugal again!"
Cons: "No vegan food options. Filthy toilet"
Pros: "Nice crew, tasty snack, new plane with comfortable seats"
Cons: "Huge bag charge for anything over 8 kg! Sign said last call 40 min before flight when agent told us to check board 30 min before flight for gate assignment!"
Pros: "All except for service to handicapped."
Cons: "I mad reservation listing that I needed wheel chair assistance due to walking limitations. Upon flight arrival no service was provided not was it provided on my return trip."

Pros: "Always the good attention."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 5 hours"
Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything but specially the fact that there was no Business class but tickets Were sold and in the end not even assigned seats. No previous info or whatsoever ... this company is becoming worst than a low cost ... well much worst !!!"
Cons: "They were lying about a supposed compensation for denied boarding which was supposed to be handed out in Lisbon. I didn't expect this behavior from grown up people, and such a company in Europe. TAP should be excluded from star alliance."
Pros: "We were traveling with a 7 month old so boarding was made easy by the crew. Most of the crew were quite pleasant during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system hand piece failed so you were unable to select channels, turn the over head light off or ever call for assistance. We had to get another passenger to do that for us. Ultimately the light bulb had to be removed from the fixture. During the flight, we asked for more refreshments and were told we could only have water by a flight attendant. Upon arrival at our destination with a child in hand, our stroller was not unloaded at the gate so we had to carry our child and all that travels with him to the baggage area. For anyone travelling internationally, you will know this is generally quite a distant from the gate in major airports. The strollers and car seats arrived in baggage 30 minutes after the main luggage. When staff were approached they were short and appeared very disinterested in helping. TAP failed on this flight home."
Pros: "Cute meal already waiting for us at the seat when boarded"
Cons: "The delay on the take off"
Pros: "The trip back home to NY from Lisbon was great, flight staff was attentive and courteous, the plane was clean, the entertainment made the time go by fast and the warm blanket and pillow provided a comfortable experience."
Cons: "Unfortunately my girlfriend is a celiac and we forgot to pre-order a gluten free meal, so she had little to no food options for her to eat. The sandwich offered right before landing could be made with gluten free bread or even a corn based tortilla."
Cons: "Some not so friendly crew members on this flight. There was one tall, blonde flight attendant who wore so much perfume that I could taste it every time she walked down the aisle. You can't have that in an enclosed space. In this day and age of so many people having food allergies to nuts, why would you serve a dessert with almonds?? My daughter almost ate it because there was no warning label. It scares me to think what might have happened at 12,000 feet."
Cons: "My flight got delayed and i ended up getting stuck in Lisbon for 20 hrs. Not happy about that."
Pros: "The punctuality"
Cons: "The airplane was small for a 8-9 hours trip, the seat were super small, I'm not a big person and I was very uncomfortable in them, the crew wasn't very nice, the food was a mess the girl next to me was a vegan and they give her a cheese sandwich, entertainment didn't work well there were only 4 channels, comparing to AirEuropa very mediocre and awfull airplane, really I'm from Venezuela and even there the airplanes are better, not worthy the 600$ one way ticket I got."
Cons: "bought a business class upgrade -- no extra leg space, no larger seats, were out of vegetarian option"
Pros: "I don't know. We weren't able to make out flight. We booked 6 months in advance through Easyjet. Our flight time was 7:45. Sometime between then and our flight, they changed the time to 6:20 without informing us. We found out when we went to check in and our flight time was different. This caused us to miss our flight. We tried to get a refund and they denied changing anything even though we have documentation."
Cons: "We booked 6 months in advance through Easyjet. Our flight time was 7:45. Sometime between then and our flight, they changed the time to 6:20 without informing us. We found out when we went to check in and our flight time was different. This caused us to miss our flight. We tried to get a refund and they denied changing anything even though we have documentation."
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad, the flight attendant was unfriendly, which is unlike any Portuguese we have met in our trip, maybe she was just having a bad day."
Pros: "The service they provided us reminded us of how airlines used to treat their customers in the past. Meals were provided as was entertainment (there were individual tv screens for us to watch movies on) all for no additional cost to us. From the customer service to the services provided and the legroom on the flight -- everything was more than what we expected and we would consider flying TAP Portugal again."
Pros: "All included extra inches of leg room and personal entertainment system at no additional cost. Food was excellent on our way to Europe, not so good on the way back but still decent. The crew was professional and courteous and the boarding process (two kids included) was very smooth. This has been our BEST experience with an airline in 15 years of traveling annually to Europe. I will book with TAP for now on."
Pros: "No comment on this flight"
Cons: "No comment on this flight"
Pros: "Good flight, boarded and left on time. Food and service were fine."
Cons: "My entertainment system at my seat kept freezing. Would have used it throughout the flight but was only able to watch one movie. Reset attempts occurred but eventually I gave up."

Cons: "Sandwich served was a bit bleak but it was served with a glass of wine!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again."
Pros: "Punctual, good crew"
Cons: "No free entertainment in an international flight, food no good for vegetarian meals"
Pros: "Timely check-in, on-time arrival, prompt disembarkation using 2nd stairway at back, courteous service."
We left 1.5 hours late, there was very little communication beforehand even as to what gate, just delayed. staff was not able to rebook my connection ahead of time, even knowing before take off i would miss it. meaning i had to spend an extra night, rather than get on a different flight the same day. the customer service desk was grossly understaffed, meaning we had to wait 2 hours to get rebooked.
Very helpful when my passport went astray, then finally found.
never made this flight, Iberia abandoned us.
Up-to-date entertainment such as movies.
Checking was smooth, staff generally all friendly, boarding a bit disorganized (I heard no announcements), plane clean and modern, etc. Check-in could potentially have been this easy though because the flight was pretty empty. You have to pay for everything including blankets, pillows, headsets to enjoy the (free) entertainment, any food, etc., but that was expected, and I have no issue with that. However, not even offering any water during the flight is crazy on an nearly 8 hour flight, especially for our kids. You can go ask for it, but they are not coming through to offer you any, presumably because they are trying to sell you drinks.
The flight was hours late and caused me to miss my connection to Boston. Iberia was slow to fix things at the airport and ended sending me to a low-budget hotel. This was a bad experience overall and I will likely discontinue using Kayak again going forward.
Cons: "The service and the flight connection which we missed because of the short amount of time in between the 2 flights. They didn't wait for us, as we got told they would, since our first flight was with Iberia. And this flight was late"
Cons: "Being able to go home"
Cons: "We had to check our bags because the plane was too full, this was inconvenient and it made the plane arrive a little late"
Cons: "more space and be able to recline"
Cons: "Personal very rude no manners to answer Questions or direct people."
Cons: "The suitcase did not zrrive"
Pros: "The crew were helpful and efficient - it was a short flight so they had very little time to prepare the meal, distribute the meal and prepare the aircraft for landing - but they did."
Cons: "The English announcements by the cabin crew (not the pre-recorded announcements) were difficult to understand at times due to the accent."
Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "The crew was kind of slack. They didn't have aqua con gas. The toilets were not kept clean."
Pros: "The crew was really nice. They were friendly and genuine."
Cons: "Infotainment system"
Cons: "Boarding procedures are a disaster. The plane arrived early however there was not a gate available for 45-60 minutes. Removal of the bags for customs inspection also took over 45 minutes. We then missed our connecting flight Out luggage made the plane but we didn’t!"
Cons: "Still waiting for luggage 2 hours after arriving."
Cons: "Need more than 2 beverage services in 8 hour flight. Need air flow control at seat."
Cons: "Offer drinks, water"
Pros: "The flight went as expected. there were no surprises."
Cons: "The airplane was super uncomfortable and it was a long flight. I’ve flown with Iberia to Europe in the past and this was my worst experience in terms of comfort."
Pros: "Al the devices provided"
Pros: "Good legroom."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and we made great time all the way from LAX to Madrid (I only had carry-on luggage so I can’t speak for their check-in process). Loved having a non-stop flight. Crew was attentive and professional. Great new movie selection. The one bathroom I went into was probably the largest airplane bathroom I’ve ever been in!"
Cons: "However, I would have taken a smaller lavatory if it meant larger/comfier seats! I was pretty uncomfortable the whole flight. The leg room was alright for me being 5’6” but I’m not sure how anyone much taller would fare. The seats themselves were similar to a budget domestic airline. Fine when you’re only going a few hours, but on a transatlantic flight it really started to get to my back :("
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Crappy plane for an international flight"
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "I had ordered a gluten free meal but in the chaos of my seat moving multiple times, it got lost in the shuffle so I wasn't able to eat much of the food that was served. I have long legs and the seat provided almost no where for them to go. I was very uncomfortable by the end of the flight."
Pros: "I liked my flight to Mallorca with BA"
Cons: "I didn’t like trip from Mallorca to SFO via Iberia."
Pros: "On time, Very professional crew."
Cons: "Could not do online check-in."
Pros: "The staff was rude and not helpful. Check in was below standard."
Cons: "I requested a vegan meal weeks prior and the only meal without meat had a lot of dairy in it. Not enough water was offered as well. The flight was delayed boarding. The leg room is pitiful on the flight."
Pros: "On time dép and arrival"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "The seat pitch was so small my knees were hard against the seat in front of me for 1.5 hours and I was miserable the whole time. To put this in perspective this was the most uncomfortable I have ever been on an airplane. My legs hurt the whole flight. This was the first leg of an expensive international flight and given the price of the 2 legs I should have been upgraded to a more comfortable seat. My flight to Europe on Iberia was excellent. However based on this bad experience I plan to avoid Iberia in the future because they treat their high price paying customers poorly. Peter Valorz Valorzp@yahoo.com."
Cons: "The cramped space"
Pros: "The entertainment system with movies was great, with plenty of choices and good sound. The crew was very good. Legroom on the seats was good. They kept the temperature in the plane just right. We could board first because we had a 5-year-old child."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour leaving Chicago, and arrived an hour late in Madrid. The screen was not updated in Chicago to let us know what was going on. It's a mass of people at the gate, with very little systematic lining up. One luggage piece did not come out on the carousel in Madrid. We had to wait 1.5 hr at the airport to confirm that they would send it to our Madrid hotel. Hopefully it will come. The food was mediocre. Pasta for dinner with little to no meat. Not even fruit. They are clearly saving money on the food."
Pros: "Cabin crew did reseat a passenger when there were two tallish men in same row."
Cons: "The seat on the LGW to MAD leg of my journey was very painful and uncomfortable. Seat pitch was very short. I have never seen such close seats in 45 years of flying including bargain airlines let alone more pricey higher quality airlines like British. Iberia was supposed to be an extension of British. When I arrived at MAD I went to the Iberia desk and tried to make an upgrade to their "business" class which was not up to the level of British's Premium Economy. At the Iberia desk at MAD, or online, or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole round trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! years.This was RETURN part of my journey! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time at MAD when I landed, online, or on the phone. British also said that I could not upgrade just the first (MAD to LGW) leg of my return journey. I would have to upgrade the LGW to TPA also. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. Emergency evacuation would be very difficult for all pax with the short seat pitch. My having to sit sideways with my legs in the aisle would make it more difficult for other pax to to evacuate in an emergency. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years. British should be aware that bad experiences with partner airlines tarnishes their reputation. As a premier airline British should pressure partner airlines to maintain seat pitch at no less than 32 inches which is still tight for many people. Since not all partners have equivalent classes of fares, British should allow mixed classes. For example on a TPA to MAD round trip journey, it should be possible for the transatlantic legs to be at Premium Economy prices, and the short legs LHR or LGW to MAD at business class prices.

Pros: "Entertainment choices were ok."
Cons: "no leg room."
Pros: "The entertainment is great, I always appreciate a good movie selection for long haul flights. The space is ok and the seats recline well. The blankets and pillows were warm and comfortable too. Food was remarkably edible."
Cons: "The beverage services should come around more often. Two cups of water during a 9 hour flight just aren't adequate."
Pros: "The flight on time. Clean nice."
Cons: "Iberia's only thing is that airplanes don't have enough leg space"
Cons: "We were in JFK for over 24 hours being lied to and being promised that our flight to Madrid although late would leave that day. We were changed from boarding door to boarding door, we were told that there were no hotel rooms available in New York that they could place us in and told that they were testing a plane and as soon as it was confirmed it could fly we would be on it. At approx. 1am or a little after we (the passengers) from the flight were located at boarding door 7 and they brought an Iberia plane right by the windows in hopes that we would be put at ease at the sight of a possible flight only to find out that there are no flights out of JFK after 1am. The lies they told and or lack of truths was very frustrating"
Pros: "Iberia is fine"
Cons: "Kayak booked through Webjet. Flights changes. Webjet never contacted me. Found out when checking in. Spent hours on phone getting rebooked right before travel."
Pros: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
Pros: "movie and tv show selection was great. Helped bide the time"
Cons: "A little cramped for my legs."
Pros: "Check in was easy. I received an email form the airline tell me where to go for my connection."
Cons: "Very impatient flight attendant. She was really rude to me. Seats were very uncomfortable. The flight was held on the tarmac both departing and arriving to JFK. Botj creating a delay."
Pros: "Upon boarding the flight attendant looked at my seat # and directed to to the correct side of the aircraft. I found this to be very helpful, since on the trip over I was in the wrong side had to bother people to move so I could get to the correct side of the aircraft. Travel can be very stressful, this made boarding quicker and easier."
Pros: "Good food, great crew and service. Enjoyed the entertainment options-- plenty of choices. Smooth, comfortable flight."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
