Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "Great polite crew attentive to every need"
Cons: "Try to be on time!"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Being able to upgrade to business or first from app"
Cons: "The on-boarding in Barcelona was a little odd. Instead of calling boarding by groups or zones it was a free for all. That could have been better organized"
Pros: "Crew was not friendly and gathered in the rear galley complaining about their job and customers. The seat was not comfortable at all."
Cons: "Most everything could have been better. All phases were far below average."
Cons: "Crew was cold and rude"
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "Nice plane and entertainment"
Cons: "Booked flight through British air for a reason. Didn’t anticipate American Airlines being used for our flights. The Flight was also delayed but it was never explained why despite dozens of questions from passengers. This caused a missed connection flight and forced us to stay overnight in Chicago with nothing but a $12 food voucher. When we tried t ask what other options were, American Airlines personal offered no sympathy and said the best we would get is the food vouchers and we should be grateful. No other travel reimbursement or vouchers were offered other than a replacement flight. Overall it was a huge inconvenience and caused numerous other expenditures for us."
Pros: "The rest was as usual"
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Cons: "lots of branding stuff-watching any video had you go through 3 minutes of commercials. I must have watched the same commercials over 20 times."
Pros: "Loved the BRAND NEW airplane!!"
Cons: "Food is so fatty. this is 2018, we should be having healthier choices."
Pros: "The comfort..the movies."
Cons: "No outlets. Poor options for vegetarians"
Cons: "Flight out to BCN was one of the worst in my life! Never had an agent (BA Denver) talk to you and then mid conversation say they closed 3 minutes ago (7 minutes in to trying to find a flight alternative for their cancelled flight...and I wasn’t being upset!)"
Pros: "Food & inflight entertaiment decent."
Cons: "Gate agent claiming carry on bag ro large. Used it 30+ as a carryon with our difficulty. It is 14”x22”. If the concern was too many bages dont bs pasengers about reason they are asked to to check bag."
Cons: "i couldn't get my seat before the flight. Coouldn't even find out it was on American airline. So I couldn't get gluten free meal for any of the legs of my journey and I have celiac's disease. A real problem!!!!!"
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Pros: "The video screen on my assigned seat was broken so I moved to a seat where there was no one else in the row of, do I had plenty of leg room."
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seating was uncomfortible"
Pros: "The food was great! The entertainment was great! I had enough space!"
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "Great hard working crew. Good food and snacks. On time!!!"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Liked all the little amenities - actual meals, USB plugs for charging, free movies and games to entertain my kids, enough leg room that I can bend down and get stuff from my bag under the seat and that I could lean back a little without causing the person behind me to need knee surgery, tilt feature on screens to make video viewing easier when the person ahead of you tips their seat back. Seats were wide enough that I didn't fear jabbing my neighbor in the ribs every time I moved. Ice Cream!"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "I did not board the plan. I had to buy an additional ticket because I had an emergency and it was going to be over 1,000$ to change the date for me to come back"
Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."
Cons: "They would not let me board for being less than 5 minutes late."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class and it was wonderful"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "We flew directly from Madrid to Miami with IBERIA"
Cons: "Food is horrible Change seats without notice"
Pros: "Appreciated the staff acommodated me with an aisle seat."
Cons: "Had worse return flight experience. The flight was supposed to depart at 10am. While everyone was boarded, we were told the airplane missing a part. All of us had to wait for 2 and half hours for the crew to tell us that the part was in London. Thus, the flight had to be canceled. Then we waited to pick up our luggages from 12:30pm to nearly 4pm in order to get transported to a 40- minute drive away Hotel. I was starving because I didn't have breakfast as I tried to catch my flight and no food was provided during the waiting time. Plus, the entire day was wasted. Oh well, at least we were provided accommodation for the overnight, 2:40am breakfast, 4am airport shuttle, and 8am flight to get to our destination next day."
Pros: "Flight crew was polite and professional."
Cons: "I would not have booked this flight had I known there was no seatback video entertainment system on this aircraft. It made for a very long and boring flight."
Cons: "Could not understand the boarding instructions-PA system and speaker not good"
Cons: "Only a few options as far as tv and movies"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The plane was older than me. There was no personal in flight entertainment on a daytime, 8hr 49min long-haul flight. Further the old "TV" six rows ahead of me was playing something I could barely see but the Audio system was broken for the whole plane so it was torture that the TV was even on. American Airlines needs to send modern equipment. This plane was unaccepatable by today's standards."
Pros: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Cons: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Pros: "That I slept a bit"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs, no Economy plus option, old plane, no individual TVs for private entertainment."
Cons: "The touchscreen on the plane was awful, 10 touches to make it work at least."
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Unprofessional flight attendants, who bickered at each other AND at passengers. flight was late took forever for bags to hit the carousel terrible food"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the staff that served us. Very attentive! Very polite. Could not have been better."
Cons: "The seats worked well but showing their age. One seat across from me broke mid flight. The attendant did get it working. The controls are pretty easy to understand. Push a button and see what happens."
Pros: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old, seats uncomfortable like all the cushion in the seat had been worn out, and a bathroom was out of order so we had to wait in line for the other one that would quickly run out of paper towels."
Pros: "Great crew of airplane staff"
Pros: "No internet on long light!!!!"
Pros: "Crew helpful & friendly"
Cons: "Felt squished"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the crew was great."
Cons: "While the entertainment system had good options, the screen was very unresponsive when pushing the buttons. On average, it would take me over 10 tries to get any on screen button to work. Gave up several times."
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"
Pros: "The price was right!"
Cons: "I know the saying “you get what you pay for”, but good service from the flight attendants should be expected in the price. It was hard to get a greeting or a smile from them, far from prompt delivery of food or coffee ordered. We were traveling with two kids under 5, but there was no help offered. You are expected to pay for any and all food or drinks, including water. The airline could at least offer free water. The meal quality was mediocre for the price paid, and their stock ran out pretty fast."
Cons: "Crew was rude and the seats had astoundingly little leg room. Plus they tried to upcharge for everything. Will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Flight at time. Arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "I ordered a cava bottle and it was hot. But rest was ok"
Pros: "uncomfortable seats, narrow space"
Cons: "If the plane had some wifi, better food,"

They offered a variety of meal options, yet when they got to me they said they only had a beef option so i had no other choice but when they went to the person behind me they had dif"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Couldn't find out online which gate my flight was leaving from. Long bus ride from jetway to plane. No in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Service was a bit lacking. Due to extra security measures at the gate, we did not have time to get enough food in the terminal to bring on board with us so needed to order a sandwich and drink. The on screen food order system did not work, and it was difficult to know when we could request food."
Cons: "More attentive flight attendants and better explanation of when food and beverages not purchased in advance could be ordered."
Cons: "Offer drinks, water"
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "Long walk to our gate."
Pros: "Dreamliner is great. So we’re the crew"
Cons: "Please serve water at the very least."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 45 min"

Pros: "La puntualidad de los vuelos"
Cons: "Compre mis tickets por iberia y me mandaron a AA sin derecho a maletas ni poder elegir mis seats"
Pros: "Did not have A chance to fly this route."
Pros: "Not a goddamn thing."
Cons: "The boarding was a cattle care, atrociously organized, took forever. They were asking the better part of ten dollars for headphones. No way to get a drink, as with the trip over, the chairback screens didn't work, and they never notified me by e-mail that you had to order food in advance. Not even a glass of water available on a 7 hour flight, that's actually a health hazard, should be illegal. No coffee or tea. The window seat I paid up for was about 8 inches from the window, so I couldn't even lean my head there. No in-flight magazines, or handing out newspapers , no entertainment available, just sitting there uncomfortably for 7 hours while the attendants huddled behind drawn and velcro'ed curtains doing nothing. A true disgrace. Avoid Iberia and their LEVEL subsidiary like the plague. Unacceptable in every way....and at least Ryan Air and WOW are cheap, this flight was full price. Total rip-off, never again."
Pros: "I was not impressed with the servi"
Cons: "Counter people needs to be trained to learn how to use relationship with costumers"
Cons: "I purchased an Iberia flight and ended up with Level instead. Big bait and switch. I was expecting Iberia level food and service but got a low cost airline with no frills instead. The boarding was chaotic and the food was bad."
Pros: "Everything good litle big later but always is like this..."
Cons: "The latter"
Cons: "We have to spend almost one hour because of delay"
Cons: "Short flight so no type of entertainment or drink/food service."
Pros: "The premium economy does help for Long lights. Mine was BCN to OAK and being a y’all person the extra legroom was much appreciated. With the low cost of level I would fly again for sure"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken meal"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Tiny seats. Dirty and old plane. Vueling"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Lack of water, food, attentiiveness, leg room, wife's lost luggage"
Pros: "Finnair landed their plane so smoothly...."

Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "Bad customer service. Food was stale and I threw up"
Cons: "Barcelona to Madrid... got the TB section. Chorus of coughers in these days."
Pros: "The staff was rude and not helpful. Check in was below standard."
Cons: "Online check in failed, and legroom was non-existent - the worst of any alliance-based carrier I have ever flown."
Cons: "The service was aweful. Right from getting my ticket, to getting served on the flight. Staff needs major improvement."
Pros: "Comfort and crew were good,"
Cons: "Delay in takeoff due to equipment repair"
Pros: "On time or early"
Cons: "Cramped quartrrs, plastic food."
Cons: "Airliner contracted out to another flight operator. We looked up and down the terminals trying to find the sign for IBERIA to no avail. It was quite hectic and stressful to arrive to the airport and not see your airline booth anywhere. No signage or anything there of to indicate Iberia or the other operator taking over this Iberia's flight. Then they wanted to charge for my carry-on saying it is too large. Went back and forth arguing for about 10 minutes then I found the bag sizing stand and demostrated to them my carry-on bag fits inside the bars as indicated in their sign. They said oh well it looks large from here. Customer Service is non. It is more Customer Harrassment. DO YOU PAY YOUR CUSTER SERVICE REPS Commission for every checked bag or something? Too bad there aren't many more options but I am considering going to social media to with this. NOT HAPPY and not flying with IBERIA anytime soon. SEnd me my refund!"
Pros: "Exit row seating has plenty of room"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was unbelievably low, everyone was complaining about how cold it was, rubbing and blowing on our hands. The woman next to me was concerned about being made sick because of prolonged exposure to cold. Then they forced us to buy blankets for 25 euro. Unless I hear that this flight was unique I won’t ever fly level again no matter how discounted the airfare"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Read my experience in the disliked comment.. and you will understand why there's nothing to like about this trip"
Cons: "I know this is a budget airline, but the customer service was beyond terrible. Originally when I booked this flight, expected departing time was at 14:30 and I booked an earlier flight in accordance with Iberia. We had a connecting flight from Lisbon to Barcelona with Vueling (coshare of Iberia) which was expected to arrive at 12:00. However, it was an hour late. In addition, Vueling insisted we volunteer to check in our carry on bags due to lack of overhead compartment space. Yet when we got on the flight, there was evidently enough space. Thus, while waiting for our baggage, our flight to Oakland was already on last call. We explained our situation to Iberia and their customer service would not help us. They refused to cover the cost of our flight and stated we needed to purchase another flight out of pocket, which was quoted to be $1100+/person! Save your time and money and book with another airline."
Cons: "2 of our bags didn't arrive to Beirut"
Pros: "It was nice and cool inside the plane."
Cons: "It was several empty seats available and wasnt offered the those who were crammed in the middle Isles."
Cons: "Horrible from beginning to ending."

Pros: "Madrid airport was modern, clean & very welllaid out"
Pros: "Check in was easy"
