Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Return flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Flight to Iceland was uncomfortable, cramped, and unfriendly crew"
Pros: "crew was friendly. flight was on time."
Cons: "they randomly selected my 17 year old daughter for extra security clearance, a routine process that has little to do with true security and more to do with security theater. They also lost one of our suitcases and when we called to file the loss the person on the phone was not that friendly."
Pros: "Flight was late"
Cons: "No AC and awful smell"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The seat bottom cushion was extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Boarding at KEF needs to be more organized."
Pros: "Pillows and blankets free of charge."
Cons: "You had to go through their customs to change plans. Then you had to board a bus to get carried over to your connecting plane. There was not enough time allowed between flights to do that. They did not have enough bathrooms for all the flights coming in at the Iceland airport. Iceland Air is basically a travel agency in an airplane for Iceland. A lot of pushing by the company to stop in Iceland for a few days and buy Iceland products. It was a lot of hassle to cross the Atlantic on Iceland Air, and I will try not to use them again."
Pros: "Got home safely"
Cons: "No meal was provided. Captain's announcement was barely heard - poor PA system or he or she did not speak clearly"
Pros: "Poor communication. Old planes. Late departures and arrivals. And the staff has zero f@;$s to give."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Hard to say what I liked as my experience was soured right from the onset"
Cons: "I was surprised by being charged almost $100 to check in my luggage, and over $100 on my return leg. (Yes! I could have looked at their baggage policy, but there was no glaring notification alerting me to this fact when I purchased the ticket, nor when I was checking in online) Then, I was further surprised that you had to pay for food on board. This was a first. I mean, on an international long distance flight? Everything became mediocre after these, and I mentally swore off flying this airline ever again."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, smooth and easy flights"
Cons: "Everything was fine no complaints"
Pros: "the flight was great! it was comfortable! good entertainment!"
Cons: "The check in process. Once you check in at the gate, you have to board a bus to go to the plane. I sat on a bus breathing in exhaust fumes for 20 minutes in the cold, rainy, windy weather. I also think they should offer a small complimentary snack! all the food must be purchased!"
Pros: "Every crew member was very courteous. Gave free Iceland water as you enter plane. Movie selection was pretty good too."
Cons: "Woman at luggage check-in told us our flight was overbooked and we needed to get a new flight. We stood in another line for an hour only to be told that our original flight was waiting for us. Ran to the gate with around 30 other people to make the flight. Obvious miscommunication somewhere between their departments."
Pros: "Better movies assortment and also TV Cooking newtwork"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No food on international flight"
Pros: "Entertainment was broken the entire flight; unable to charge electronics; food available for sale was really limited. All in all, not a great flight."
Cons: "No acknowledgement from the crew or apology about broken entertainment system."
Pros: "Everything that was under Icelandair's control went great! Got an unexpected upgrade on both legs of my flight, the cabin was comfortable, and it had a good selection in-flight entertainment for a budget airline."
Cons: "No food is served--be sure to pack a snack. If you're planning to eat in Reykjavik, bear in mind that airport food is especially expensive in Iceland."
Pros: "Nice crew, spacious plane."
Cons: "The man sitting next to me was overserved alcohol (at least 8 mini bottles of vodka) and became very loud and inappropriate towards me. Maybe there should be a limit on serving alcohol when someone is very obviously drunk? No snacks offered for a 6 hour flight"
Cons: "This was an international flight of 6 hours, food had to be purchased. I was not aware of this when I booked the flight. I could have bought food in the airport had I known. As a courtesy, couldn't they remind us of this fact at the gate? In addition my seat was changed at the gate from the 20th row to the 37th which is always so noisy, again, not appreciated."
Pros: "The flight was staffed by friendly, attentive staff. There was more leg room than on some airlines. Beverages were free, but you had to pay for food on this trans Atlantic flight. Most of us knew this in advance and brought food onboard."
Cons: "It's in my opinion obscene not to provide any type of food on a 6-hour flight that you don't have to pay for"
Cons: "Extensive delays"
Pros: "Bird struck plane that we were about to board; maintenance crew thankfully determined to switch planes even though it would cause delays. Rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "Our checked bag never showed up at customs bag claim in NYC. To date (5 days after we arrived back home) the airlines still cannot locate our lost bag. In fact, our baggage tracking # was never registered under our names at check-in!!! Our delayed flight from Reykjavik caused us to miss our connecting flight back home, which the airline booked us in a hotel, but booked us in a hotel near LaGuardia even though flew into JFK. We never received our vouchers and were given verbal instruction. We had to arrange transportation ourselves to seek reimbursement later on, learning this after going from terminal to shuttle area, back to terminal after waiting for the shuttle that never arrived. Rooms weren't ready when we showed up at hotel at MIDNIGHT. Next day, domestic tickets could not be issued for our connecting flight, causing us to have to shuffle from terminal to terminal to resolve the ticketing issue with Iceland Air. Total nightmare of a trip."
Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew"
Cons: "Overall food was average, entertainment definitely needs to be improved"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Long lines."
Cons: "The boarding area was too crowded, as it was full of passengers waiting for another flight that left from the same gate a few minutes before the flight to NYC. This was the first time I experienced a transatlantic flight where no food was included with the ticket. Annoying that they kept interrupting the films to make announcements, first in Icelandic, then in English, of things I didn't care to know."
Pros: "Better organization needed in Reykjavik. Granted the airport needs expansion due to the increased traffic, but seats and some sort of plan for organizing the travelers for your flights is necessary."
Cons: "Long flight. Leg room is minimal for those with longer legs. There are much better food choices available than what is offered for sale."
Pros: "They left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Maybe, if not a meal, some snacks."
Cons: "Airport in Iceland severely overtaxed. Too many panes and people, not enough infrastructure"
Cons: "The boarding area was total chaos. The gates are placed very close together. Flights were scheduled for departure at almost the same time. The result is total chaos. There are no signs to indicate where the lines should form, nor stanchions to form orderly lines. Groups/lines criss cross in front the gates. For my flights, boarding happens very close or even after scheduled flight departure. Therefore when boarding finally takes place, the huge crowd forms a big bottleneck wherein 6 to 8 different "lines" have to merge into one to get boarding pass scanned. The result is delay, delay and delay."
Pros: "The service was superior. They made sure my younger daughter were occupied and gave a small gift and snack. The movies were great way to pass the time, overall experience were great! We would be a return customer for sure!"
Cons: "Nothing really, we are very pleased!"
Pros: "See above, all good reviews apply to all of my icelandair flights."
Cons: "See explanation above for previous flight. I wrote it in the wrong box and cannot copy and paste as I am completing this review on my phone."
Pros: "The entertainment was really terrific, selection was good and the equipment was brand new."
Cons: "I felt like it was bumpier than other flights I've been on. I know that's highly subjective and a product of weather but it felt like it was excessive. There wasn't a lot of communication about conditions from the flight crew like I've had on other flights. It took forever to board."
Pros: "Great entertainment."
Cons: "There are no snacks given, which is unheard of. I have never been on an international flight that doesn't even give you a bag of pretzels? This needs to be changed. Also, the chairs recline too low, people are in your lap, which is unacceptable."
Pros: "Very small seats and NO snacks or meals were given - unheard of for an international flight"
Pros: "I will never book that flight again"
Pros: "Comfortable plane, and free water was appreciated. Liked the selection of entertainment."
Cons: "My partner and I were not able To check in online so was assigned a seat at check in at the airport, leaving us to be placed at the very last row. Would have been fine except for the lack of windows (feels claustrophobic taking off and landing). Boarding was not smooth: no direction on when they started checking in, then waited in separate boarding room for 5-10 minutes with no direction on why we were waiting and for how long. Also wish a meal or snacks were included on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies, food and drinks, it is mid-November, but the featured Christmas platter and beer Jöla was a perfect ending to a lovely vacation. Food and drinks are for purchase of course, but a reasonable amount for the quality and quantity. Flight was inexpensive, but comfortable for the six-hour flight. I did not have to pay for the 3 movies I watched. Plenty of free juice, water, soft drinks, hot tea and coffee. Not to mention that Keflavik airport has lots of good foods and drinks, all tax-free. Definitely flying with Icelandair again, especially when you have 2 free checked bags and 1 carry-on bag, plus personal bag for my precious camera and tripod during a winter vacation, is absolutely essential!"
Pros: "I liked that they provided bottled water when boarding. The seats were comfy and had sufficient leg room. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I think that for a flight of this length, a complimentary meal should have been provided. I had to purchase a meal. While it was satisfactory, I felt that $15.00 was excessive."
Pros: "See previous review.. Best of the best."
Cons: "Baggage claim took over 1 hour."
Pros: "No comfortable...no food or even head phones...will check WOW from now on"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized."
Cons: "Seat 8G does not have a window."
Cons: "Flight was delayed again, never seen an airport so unorganized."
Pros: "Terribly long wait at keflavik airport to go thru customs but smooth flight."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "In addition to the above when i finally got to JFK my luggage was still lost"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "This Iwa’s very bad experience. Never again will use LOT"
Cons: "Never again"
Pros: "All is excellent"
Cons: "I paid for a certain seat before the flight, and at the check-in my seat was changed to a back row. Because of that by the time I was offered the food, there was no choice, only one food (beef) was available. I was unhappy with that!!!!! The crew tried to solve all the issues on the plane. They were excellent!!!"
Cons: "improve list of movies"
Cons: "Not allowing babies in first class. Couldn’t sleep with the baby crying."
Cons: "Enterteiment, movies"

Pros: "Overall good flight"
Pros: "Nice crew, great flight entertainment."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seat was very tight (middle section, middle seat)"

Cons: "Crew was having dificulty communicating in English."
Pros: "Staff was very nice and friendly"
Pros: "Great food and nice airplane"
Cons: "The crew could not control a rowdy crowd on the plane, we had over eight hours of chaos"
Pros: "The multilingual, very professional crew is one of the best we've traveled with. All of them are willing to help, accommodate, which was extremely important for us due to my husband's medical issues. Much obliged."
Pros: "Food and flight on time"
Cons: "Flight attendance kept waking me up to lift my seat so the passenger behind me can "enjoy their vegetarian meal". After I requested not to be disturbed ever again with that kind of requests, they woke me up for breakfast again. I was the only passenger around that they requested to pull my seat."
Pros: "Crew was very polite, smiling and accommodating , food was great quality, good selection of entertainment on board. Comparing what LOT was few years ago, they have made a huge progress and overall improved everything across the board. We got to destination before scheduled time."
Cons: "I don’t like to seat next to toddlers. They should have special place, separate area just for families with kids, fare on the end of corridor. Noice , activities, banging and smelling, not pleasant and not confortable for what I paid. My comfort of flight with LOT was completely ruined this time."
Pros: "I am not sure where to start from but each lot employee I talk with had poor English and not the tinyest willing to help just to move , I had a flight back from cezh republic to JFK with a stop in Warsaw When I got to the front desk in the air port to print my ticket the Liady ( work at Sation 236 ) was very rude and anti costumer service she print me only my first fly ticket and when I ask why she " I don't know " I said ok so when u get there you know which get I go or where I will print the other ticket she say I don't know Ok and then I ask her can u check if it a room I. My flight from Warsaw to JFK in business it this moment she tell me I can switch sit and ask me to go I was shocked but this was only the bigining when I got to Warsaw I ask in the gate counter where should I go to print my ticket after I try to explain him 10 times what I mean ( he didn't speak English at all ) he told me to go pass the passport check and in gate 21 they will print it to me I fly a lot so I ask him if he sure becuse I am petty sure I will need my ticket the guy at the desk repeat imhim self so I want and waited 25-30 min in the line so the police officer in the passport check will tell me I need to go print my ticket So after the officer from the passport desk call someone he direct me to go to hate 26 and there they will print my ticket I want them and again wait for 15 min to print my ticket ( it was only me this is the sad thing I don't know what tool 15 min to print a ticket ) and it amazing how unsocial and 0 in customer service the lot polish employees I meet And this is without talking about the delay in my coming flight for 2-3 hrs ( a delay it something that happen a lot yes but the way they handled it again 0 in costumer service )"
Cons: "The flight attendant was very nice and professional but it was business class so u can't really compare I will definitely will not recommend ppl to fly with them This is not the service you accept for 3000$ flight"
Pros: "better than expected accommodations, wonderful crew."
Cons: "entertainment system stopped working at one point. Snack before landing was a sad excuse for a cheese sandwich. Bathroom sink was backing up."
Cons: "I paid $ 55 extra for my seat # 20G.Company changed aircraft(it was Boeing 777-200).I did't get what i paid for. They gave me seat #30G(regular).Do i have a chance to get my money back?"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing. Very attentive, courteous and professional!! The crew was in no way responsible for how terrible this airplane was, and they did a wonderful job of making sure everything was taken care of."
Cons: "The plane was terribly old and decrepit. None of the television screens worked, the airplane was dingy, brown, worn out looking and just overall gross. This flight was operated by a company called Privilege Style, and while the crew was fantastic everything else was terrible. The food was pathetic and nasty; they served breaded chicken that was so soggy it resembled a used dish cloth. It came with soggy oily vegetables and a cake that had condensation all over it. The only redeeming thing on this flight was the free Polish beer (it was warm). The flight we took going to Poland was on one of their new Dreamliner planes and it was amazing! We were so disappointed with this return flight as it was a stark contrast to the wonderful experience we had coming to Poland. I hope in the future they can discontinue use of these older planes, as it makes flying much more aggravating."
Cons: "Entertainment system decades out of date. Worked poorly. Cabin crew kept their curtain closed, as if they didn't want to interact with passengers. Food was extremely mediocre, thank goodness I brought nuts. Drink glasses very small."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The wait until we could get off the plane after landing due to the fact that there weren't any gates available."
Cons: "Going to board the plane and they told a group of like 30 of us we had been selected for random security check. So obviously it took a long time to get all those people through the check and we departed very late. Then sat on the tarmac for an hour and forty five minutes. The pilot said it would be 15 minutes and then never gave another update beyond that, which made it much worse."
Cons: "There was a delay at Warsaw Airport for almost 3 Hours I arrived home 2.00 Am I missed a family wedding that night"
Cons: "Unable to choose seat at ticket purchase."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was ok. They usually charge for any alcoholic beverages, though."
Cons: "Extremely rude staff (allowed a passenger to almost break my hand luggage with hers, and literally laughed at my concern,) kept us on plane for 2+ hours with minimal info given on the problem, then de-planed and kept us waiting at Warsaw airport for another 2 hours (no food, water or even a manager appeared until the end of that 4 hours, by the way, and only after a screaming mob of passengers formed,) then kept us on the new plane for nearly another 2 hours. This made for an approximate 6 hour delay, with minimal comfort, food, water, info or sympathy throughout, nor an offer to switch our flights and/or provide night accommodation due to the 5+ hour delay on this evening flight (as is within our passenger rights.) The plane finally arrived to JFK way after 1 a.m., which completely ruined weekend work and social plans, not to mention how exhausting and disrespectful of an experience it was. PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERY SINGLE OF THE FOUR LOT FLIGHTS I'D UNDERTAKEN THAT WEEK WERE DELAYED IN A SIMILAR FASHION - AS IN, WITH LITTLE INFO OR EXCUSE. No, thanks, Lot - and you should refund us all."
Pros: "Pleasant personal, great service!"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly. On this flight we had a delicious meal, snacks, drinks, refreshing towels. What an great experience after flying in the US where all these services have disappeared for bottom line profits."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. food was free"
Cons: "Then the flight from warsaw to JFK was fine, but when we landed there was only 10 minutes for me to get to my next flight and i asked the attendant if she could call my gate ahead and tell them I'm trying to make it, and she grunted and told me to sit back down. Then i proceeded to go to baggage claim where my bag never showed up and when I finally saw that it wasn't showing up I sprinted to my next flight and got to the door 15 seconds after it closed. Then i had to spend the night in NYC and was unable to go to buffalo unitl the morning after having spent already the whole day in the airport since my first flight didn't take off until about 5 hours after it was scheduled. And now I still do not have my bag, and jet blue says they never got it from LOT airlines"
Pros: "Service, attention, every single detail was perfect while the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to say at this point"
Cons: "15 minute delay waiting for a gate to become available after taxiing to the terminal at JFK. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "The food and service was very good."
Cons: "The seating arrangement. Unless you have an isle seat,you have to climb over someone to get to the isle."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Attitude of the Stewart was terrible she was a little cocky and didn't appreciate her attitude"
Pros: "I only liked that I got to watch a few movies to kill the worst experience I had !"

Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "The movie selection was poor"
Cons: "Extra baggage payment need to be more efficient. It should be 1 stop to check in bags and pay for extra bags and overweight bags."
Cons: "Loud passengers no crew attention."
Cons: "Flight attendamt woke me up to straighten my seat so person behind me can eat more comfortably. I have trouble flying and took 3 sleeping pills so I can fly comfortably and now the woman woke me up and I couldn't fall back asleep so she can eat? So horrible. 30 screaming kids on the flight. They served food while I slept so I called the flight attendant 7 times to now bring me food since she woke me up. She never showed up. So no only was I now up, couldn't fall back asleep because of the screaming children but I am SO glad the person behind me are her mean comfortably"
Pros: "Fly itself but waiting at all too long"
Cons: "Long wait till start and long wait for arrival...at all 6hours waiting inside the plane"
Cons: "toilet cover was broken no hold up"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"
Cons: "We couldn’t watch anything because the headphones required an adapter which we didn’t have and was not offered to us for purchase. We read a book for eight hours. Would have loved to watch a movie."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Seat space was tight"
Pros: "One particular member of the flight crew (Jennifer Foster-Moore, I think) was stupendously kind and helpful. The cabin service manager (a young gentleman) was also very helpful. The ice-cream bar mid-flight was a nice touch."
Cons: "The equipment for this flight is a 747-400. Hence, the personal entertainment system is old: no games, and the video can be shaky."
Pros: "It was wonderful and great!"
Cons: "No seat choice even at check in time."
Pros: "See above, ditto."
Pros: "Ability to prclear customs, that’s about it........."
Cons: "Going from Air Lingus to American Airlines - they were unable to coordinate our checked baggage. The AA gate agent had no idea what to do. Unsurprisingly, when we landed our bags did not. We are still waiting to see where they are and if we get them back. It seemed that even though we asked and were reassured several times, the team at AA was unable to deal with the luggage transfer"
Pros: "As above"
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "It’s been a while since I’ve seen a load out that old on BA. Almost 1st gen personal IFE. The plan as a whole was fikthy"
Cons: "Many cancellations and airline lost my luggage"
Pros: "Nothing about wheelchairs"
Cons: "When arrived they don't take wheelchairs"
Cons: "Heathrow is now so large that a layover of a bit over an hour is not sufficient to get comfortably from one gate area to another."
Cons: "The chair in front of mine was broken or worn out so that it declined alarmingly far. It felt like the gentleman in front me had his head in my lap. My tray table was also broken so that it listed dangerously and I had to prop it on my arm rest."
Cons: "No thigh support"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "That the flight was not bumpy and due to bad entertainment I had good views out the window"
Cons: "Tight seating, old airplane, a bit dirty, most info was in Spanish!? Could not hear overhead announcements,"
Cons: "There was an agent at the gate in London who went around asking to see everyone's boarding passes. She should have explained the reason for this rather than just walking up to people and asking to see their boarding passes since this doesn't usually happen. She didn't explain why she was doing it until AFTER some of us refused. She explained it was for added security requirements (random checks) because we were travelling to the US."
Pros: "polite, efficient"
Cons: "The time it takes for a full 777 aircraft to empty is excessive. Airlines must think outside the box and view the experience from the customers' perspective to create two or more points of exit."
Pros: "Left on time, helpful professional staff, main meal was good. Overall excellent airline"
Cons: "After 7hrs, the "before landing" snacks into JFK are crisps, chocolate, I suppose it does the job...latest cut backs. Chess game beat me :)"
Pros: "everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not enough choices for movies or tv shows."
Pros: "This flight was what you should expect - smooth boarding, helpful and friendly crew, good food and drinks service etc."
Cons: "The wash bag is now so limited- the bare minimum (and that's in business class!). No comb even. No face wipe either. It's an obvious thing to economise on from the airline's point of view, but it doesn't really have to cost them anything. And the choice of new films was somewhat disappointing - they are relying quite a lot on older films. and no duty free at all (the crew were apparently not given the correct paperwork to allow sales). This was disappointing as I had been hoping to pick up a dual SIM gadget. None of these minus points are major, but they detracted from my enjoyment of the flight"
Pros: "The was good and air hostess was kind and gentle. ."
Pros: "perfect.... loved the aircraft too ... Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "Everything important was missing. Poor poor."
Pros: "Clean only immediately after boarding."
Cons: "1) Toilets too small 2) Toilets after first use by passengers, was not cleansed and toilet supplies like seat covers, etc not replenished 3) Not even enough toilets around."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed both departing and arriving for this trip. Poor communication from British Airways."
Pros: "Big airplane 747. O"
Pros: "Hostess friendly and attentive"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it to NY. Very upset about this because I have no idea when it will be delivered!"
Pros: "Quiet and peaceful."
Pros: "There was nothing that stood out. It was just as all other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding gate number was given within the last hour before boarding. Travelers need to know ahead of time the gate number especially for an airport as large as Gatwick."
Pros: "I was blocked and was not given permission to choose a sit when checking-in"
Pros: "Nothing they cancelled flights"
Cons: "They counselled flights"

Cons: "Too many people and little space to move"
Cons: "Awful. My departing city (ZAG) was unable to process tickets for my connecting flight. Upon arrival to (MAD) the gate agent was distributing tickets on a 1st name basis. Literally just handing out tickets without verifying IDs. Not all us PAX received a ticket and were instructed to go to the customer service desk, all the while boarding was ACTIVE at the gate. While at the customer service desk, Iberia showed little attention and/or urgency for us folks who did not have our connecting flight credentials. I finally received a hand-written ticket to board an international flight. My original seat selection was not honored. The overall flight experience was poor and NOT enjoyable."
Pros: "The flight again was quick and easy."
Cons: "However, I couldn’t get soda water (not available) or a cup of coffee in between the meals. Again, I was glad I bought water before getting in the plane."
Cons: "Flight was late and the scheduled connection was only 2h. Impossible to make it even on time. JFK terminal is 3rd world"
Cons: "They didn’t let me check in or on the flight. Boarding was a disaster for others on my previous flight who were making this connection and British Airways, Iberia, and Kayak had TERRIBLE customer service when helping me (or refusing to help me) rebook my flight. I will never again use any of these companies. I’d rather walk to Europe."
Pros: "Nice newer plane Both USB and power ports"
Cons: "There was a horrible stench of sewage much of the flight Meal choices were very limited Entertainment was pretty limited The wifi has a 200 MB limit -- I blew threw it despite spending 30 Euros -- that's never happened to me before One of the flight attendants was really out of it"
Pros: "This trip would have been another good experience for me flying with Iberia if it wasn't for the man that was sitting behind me. He didn't want me to recline my seat because he wanted to cross his legs... I told him that the guy in front of me had his seat reclined all the way and I wanted (sort of needed) to do the same, then he got aggressive with verbal abuse, called me names and he punched my seat. So I called the flight attendant and told her about the incident. She was nice and calm and told the man in a very respectful way that I wasn't doing anything wrong and he should not behave in an aggressive manner, etc. The man kept mumbling insults addressed to me while talking to his wife and making sure I was hearing it.... And he kept kicking my seat every now and then, and made a fuss every time he went to the toilet. He really ruined my flight experience to New York."
Pros: "Comfortable flight good crew and entertainment"
Cons: "They need to have agents stationed throughout the terminal to help customers make connections. I had 2 hours and I still barely made my flight. The airline representatives are extremely unhelpful and the customs process is an absolute mess in Madrid."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Boarding is a hot mess, and you stand in line forever for nothing. Food never has a vegetarian option - it's 2017, time to change that.The movies are the same traveling west and east. Lastly, the power station at my seat did NOT work."
Pros: "Premium economy was very comfortable on Iberia. Their advertisements are true. We also got a great fare. Checkin at Madrid was pretty quick and security moved right along."

Pros: "My husband has trouble on planes due to his health. This flight was the most comfortable we have been on. My husband slept on the plane for the first time. We travel to Europe once a year and will be looking for this flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "The dood was decent (rice and chicken instead of a sandwich). Entertaiment was great, we had more than 20movies to choose from."

Pros: "good overall"
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: "It wasn't an Iberia flight. It was an American Airlines flight and there was no indication that we had to check in at the American Airlines counter. We had to run to the other side of the airport to check in."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"

Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "1st leg of trip, Flight was delayed an hour, original layover for 2nd leg was 1hr 15mins, so once we hit the ground we were pressed to get deplaned and on to the next gate because the Flight was still showing original on time take off time. Gate was changed, moved further away from arrival gate so many passengers ran to catch a plane that was supposed to be taking off in 10 mins, but when we arrived at the gate, boarding hadn't even started! Info at gate still showed on time take off. We didn't take off for another hour!"
Cons: "I paid for an assigned seat months before the flight. I was not given my assigned seat because I was told it was in business class. I filed a claim and want a refund."
