It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better.
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
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"
Pros: "Nice and attentive crew."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "seats very uncomfortable, boarding was a mess in Paris, priority luggage was annoying and made us miss our connection flight (as well as numerous delays)"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The snacks that were handed out prior to landing were not very good and it looked as though a lot of people in our section felt the same way. Also, there were a lot of empty seats in the comfort and premium sections, but non of our gold medallions were offered an upgrade."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service and food was good."
Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Cons: "An explanation to passengers as to why there was a backup between the gate and the plane."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class"
Cons: "More water provided during the flight. Also, the second meal was not very good."
Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and friendly. The plane took off on time and landed on time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and tedious. People still crowd around the boarding area despite there being row for the zones. Why they don't board from back to front is beyond me. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Everything. crew friendly and food/drinks the best"
Cons: "Nothing...all was wonderful"
Pros: "Liked the transfer"
Pros: "En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France"
Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time."
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 crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Cons: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."

Cons: "Food was AWFUL! Better to serve nothing"
Cons: "There are always delays. Today it was that internet was down."
Pros: "Friendly people on board"
Cons: "Crew was not very responsive. It would take over 45 minutes for them to respond to a customer call. Plane landed and we were kept on runway for 1.15 hours and crew only checked in with us twice during that time. People were panicking regarding missing their connections"
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: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Pros: "Being able to have my meal at the airport before my flight so that I could sleep in comfort."
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Cons: "We tried to check our bags through Charles DeGaulle onto our connecting Air Canada flight and the agent refused to even discuss it. Pretty bad service."
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "This plane was the nicest plane I had ever been on. Very comfortable and the entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Airplane food is airplane food I guess."
Pros: "Spacious cabin, clean and bright. Attentive crew offering snacks and a drink for an hour flight."
Cons: "Although incoming plane arrived late, flight home arrived 20 minutes early."
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."
Pros: "Comfortable, crew were fabulous. Food was fine. Champagne and they filled my water bottle happily!"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and the flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Flight came with free entertainment. That's a plus."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hrs! As a result I missed work!"

Pros: "Greets you nicely, on time, caring staffs"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Having to pick up our luggage when getting off plane from Sydney, just to walk them around the corner to be put on flight to ATL. (I thought luggage handlers were paid for this). Luggage had already been put through security!! This put us in a TOTAL RUSH just to make it on the plane ourselves!"
Pros: "Ummm . . . the colors?"
Cons: "10 years ago, American was a great airline. It has just gone down and down. The flight attendants are miserable, grabbing things out of your hand when they come to collect stuff before landing. No smiles, no grace. The plane was old, but also poorly cleaned between flights, so the bathrooms on our LAX-Atlanta flight smelled of urine from minute 1--you can imagine how they smelled by the time we landed. There was trash in my seat-back pocket when I took my seat. Supposedly food was available for purchase, but I couldn't activate the food menu, only the drinks menu, on my little seatback screen, so I just waited until I got to Atlanta to eat."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, prezels are boring, it was cold during the flight"
Pros: "Crew was great..."
Cons: "Nothing really off...just wish there were outlets for recharging devices. Thanks!"
Pros: "We left on time and the crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable. They would not recline at all. I was not looking to lay down but sitting straight up for 2 hours made it very uncomfortable. But, I guess since you added the extra seats, there is not enough room for anything. I am only 5'7" and feel sorry for those people who are much taller."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The man at the gate was rude and tried to tell me I needed to pay 50$ to bring on my small purse, while his assistant said I could put it in my carry-on. Even more strict that Spieit airlines and higher prices. They didn't even bring around drinks because of "turbulence" unless you were first class. The plane shook slightly more than a smooth flight for only a small fraction of the flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant"
Pros: "boarding process was efficient and the seats on this aircraft seemed a bit more comfortable"
Cons: "lack of in-seat video and no free wi-fi and no power connections"
Cons: "The cramped space"
Cons: "I never felt like writing a review but I feel like I should let other families with little ones know. My wife, 2 year old son, and I was boarding at the gate and they couldn't scan my son's boarding pass. They quickly went over to the computer station and gave my son another pass. We went to our seats and found out someone else is in our 2year old seat. Apparently they gave the seat to someone else at the last second because up to the point when I printed our boarding passes at the kiosk, our seats were still together (and I paid $41/per seat extra to try to keep us together). The other customer was nice enough to switch with our son so were able to stay together at the last min so it goes to show AA priority and service."
Pros: "New planes, in seat entertainment"
Cons: "Very hot plane, never cooled down."
Pros: "Everything went more smoothly this time than on our way to Phoenix. Even though the airport was quite crowded they had enough staff to get us through baggage check fairly quickly. They flight was smooth."
Cons: "No problems on this leg of the trip."
Pros: "Forgot to load meals for first class! Otherwise good"
Cons: "Still waiting after long walk for baggage"
Pros: "Nothing much beside the fact it was cheap."
Cons: "Basically, when i was boarding there was a 60 min call for closing the gate, which I went up front to check in. However the front person totally ignored me, and I missed my flight coming back. After that I had to pay extra $275 (or close to that amount) to reschedule the flight. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "American Sirlines flight # AA1249. Was a poor experience. Flight was over an hour late due to flight crew had not arrived. The plane was too small for such a long flight Los Angeles to Atlanta. Took an hour to collect our baggage from baggage claim. I will try to Avoid American Airlines on the future."
Pros: "There were charging outlets. Bravo!"
Cons: "They lost my baggage"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Pros: "Good entertainment option"
Cons: "Very delayed"
Pros: "Great customer service from the ticketing agents, gate agents, flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew"
Cons: "They need to update their planes. No tvs, no ports to charge phone, not many food options for longer flights."
Pros: "Price is fare"
Cons: "Both trip flight got delayed"
Pros: "Organized process for checkin and boarding, flight staff and service, plane features and amenities."
Pros: "All if the gate staff & on board staff that I interacted with were very friendly & efficient."
Cons: "Very tight/small & crowded waiting area."
Pros: "Price space, time"
Cons: "Waiting.. but better to be early than late"
Pros: "LOWER PRICE, BUT NO FRILLS."
Cons: "SEATS FEEL FINE AT FIRST BUT AS THE TRIP WEARS ON THE SEATS GROW TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE."
Pros: "I thought frontier was worst but american is not too far because american flight can not fly on time."
Pros: "I like the fact that the price was reasonable and the airline didn't charge for EVERYTHING! I didn't feel robbed."
Pros: "The planes people and service."
Cons: "I missed my flight in Atlanta heading to LA on my way to Brisbane, Australia on Saturday 16th July. The ground staff wasn't at all helpful in trying to get me on another flight and in fact sent me to Delta! The lady there couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Sadly I wasn't compensated at all and had to pay to re-book the flights on the Sunday 17th. On my return from Brisbane, American Airlines had cancelled my flight to Atlanta as they said I was a 'no show' heading out. Thankfully I was able to get a seat on stand by. So, no I'm not a happy customer."
Pros: "The Professionalism"
Cons: "There is not nothing to say"
Like every other airline it appears that Iberia may be having some problems getting into the air. We initially got a text message stating that our flight had been cancelled due to a labor action. Within a few minutes we got a second email reversing the flight cancellation so we were back on schedule. The flight did occur and there were no problems from BOD to MAD.
I flew round trip on “Iberia”. 4 flights and I never took an Iberia plane. They put us on a budget airline transatlantic.
I will not be leveraging Kayak again to book flights or hotels. My experience in trying to get an issue resolved was near impossible as I got bounced around from one company to the next; I called AA, Kayak, Iberia, ChatDeal and nobody was able to help me get checked in on my flight back home. It was only when I got to the AA checkin desk at the airport that they worked for an hour to get me checked in - AA in person customer support was amazing and they were able to correct for all the issues with this Kayak/Chatdeal booking. This booking was a mess - when I went through Kayak - I thought I was booking with British Air - then I got Iberia and AA - Iberia never even picked up the phone or called back - AA couldn't work with us at the onset b/c Iberia was the partner and they didn't have access to their records. Then I called ChatDeal and they told me that Iberia's servers have been down for over a week that's why the non response. Kayak booking with untrusted partners has led to a lost my trust and I will not be returning. However, I will be booking directly with AA again b/c of their customer support was great. Thanks for making such simple checkin processes so v. complex - never in my history with Kayak has this happened before and I will not let it happen again - by just not using you again.
Food service from Madrid to Chicago was exceptionally good. Unfortunately food service when we left from Chicago to Madrid was poor. Huge difference in catering services.
Vueling charged us for bags even though we paid prior to flight. Avoid them if booking Iberia and they are operating flight.
English language entertainment options.
My original flight had been canceled and they got me on a better flight with a shorter layover. I spoke to Roger on the customer service line and he was wonderful.
I am still trying to recuperate my money. I giked claim with Kayak and the insurance company. The flight never happened. It was canceled and I never received the email for cancelation. We ended up buying 4 new tickets for my entire family to come back to the States. Horrible experience. Oh and Kayak is horrible on resolving the claim. I am still waiting for a call back. I will NEVER use them again. Lesson learned.
Cons: "If kayak didn’t take me to a page where the reservation was different than what I agreed on. Not even close to what I had selected, leading me to believe I was booking a trip on the days I chose and then not realizing it was incorrect until my trip was starting. This is the last time I use kayak."
Pros: "The crew in my area were very helpful. The young guy next to me passed on the dinner choices. The crew member came back and asked if he would like some pretzels, etc. which I thought was very nice. They were very friendly."
Cons: "Just a suggestion that the ear jacks for the entertainment be passed out earlier. Luckily I brought my own but my neighbors on both sides had a long wait until they were passed out."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible, like they never done that before. They do not offer even just a glass of water- nothing."
Pros: "Quick boarding, take off, landing"
Cons: "The announcements were a bit loud and startling"
Cons: "At leasr a cup of water during the flight"
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Pros: "They have badest customer service becouse i want extended my way back to chicago they did not talk to me as customer but every time call they hand off the phone more then 3 times i will not fly again with this plane"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No seat choice."
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfort during flight."
Cons: "Confusion at time of boarding."
Cons: "Were not there to rate but someone paid you an extra fare so you made double the money on one 2 seats! BRAVO Standing Ovation!!!"
Cons: "We had a terrible experience with iberia airlines,working with british airways.We almost missed our fl8ght as they cannot find info about e tickets in the computer(otherwise i had tge print out of our tickets). Truly it was a night mare for our family. But we are really glad that we were able to board in the nick of time and finally home ."
Pros: "Two hour flight, with nice crew. Entertainment on board with a good selection is based on wifi and your ownd device. On time"
Cons: "Food is not free. If you want some, pay for it (what nowadays is normal). Leg space was tight for me"
Cons: "We had to walk onto the tarmac and climb up stairs to board the plane carrying our luggage and small child."
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning was done in a fast and orderly fashion. Crew members were polite and services were done in a coordinated manner. The food quality and quantity was good. The entertainment system and availability of options was very good. Seats were spacious and the blanket provided was very nice."
Pros: "Very timely, even cut the expected time of travel. Decent food, very friendly staff. Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "The seats and the lack of space"
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: "Overhead storage was generous. Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "They charged us for two aisle seats, and then reassigned one of us to a middle seat with no notice. With advance notice, they were unable to provide a meal that would not contain bell peppers, to which I am allergic. On the plane, both meal options contained bell peppers. Surprisingly, the ingredient lists were not available to flight attendants or passengers, and we were only aware of their presence because of seeing them, or having my allergic reaction (which I did) after avoiding the visible ones. The passenger in front of me put his seat in full recline for the entire 10 hour flight, including about 30 minutes when the seat was unoccupied. This put his seat about six inches in front of my chin and made it impossible for me to view the entertainment screen. It also made it difficult to get into and out of my seat. Several of the toilets had clear fluid covering the floor. I did not want to know is this was water or something else. Although our connecting flight in Miami went from gate E21 to gate E30, it took two hours (and 3,000 steps per FitBit) to get there because of being required to claim our luggage, leave security, recheck the bags, and then re-enter security. Our tickets did not provide for TSA-PRE despite having provided our known traveler number in advance. Many notices and directions were only available in Spanish. As they are based in a Spanish speaking country, this is perfectly reasonable, but their services are marketed to English speaking countries and it was a problem for me as a predominantly English-only speaker."
Cons: "Seating and not so friendly"
Cons: "The crew was rude and Inattentive. They keep the cabin so cold, most people more miserable and had their blankets all they way up to their necks, and still cold. Seats were very thin and not very comfortable and so close together, there's was no room to stretch out at all."
Pros: "our flight was late into MAD but they held our connecting flight to MIA, so we could make it."
Cons: "The crew was not good at all. there was no water service, one had to go to the kitchen and beg for water. in particular the male crew was not happy to help with anything. the snack before landing was served 45 mins before arrival so everything had to be rushed. Crew soiled a half empty can of soda on me, and didn't even apologize. Our luggage missed the flight to MIA and we were told it would be delivered to our house the next day between 7pm and 8pm. it never showed. I called customer service and they could not tell me anything. Horrible experience"
Cons: "crew took forever to clear up the food that was nasty..took an hour and also took forever to make rounds with coffee and tea. did not time dimming of lights to time of destination to be able to adjust to time difference. lack of bathrooms, on 4 working for a huge coach area. pretty bad experience"
Cons: "In Chicago, again my carryon things and person were extensively searched, to the point that the explosives expert was called to examine my shoes and cell phone!! If anyone would have been trying to get away with something, they were certainly able to with the time and energy wasted on me as I was only anxious to get home to see my grandchildren!!"
Pros: "Nothing stands out."
Cons: "The seats are cramped, no leg room. The passenger in front of me reclined her seat and spent the majority of the flight in my lap. The temperature on the plane was hot. if you're in an aisle seat you might feel the air conditioner but not if you're in the center of the row. There are not air vents above the seats. This was a long flight to be miserable."
Pros: "Philadelphia to London"
Pros: "Seats in the first flight were very tight"
Cons: "No space for the legs!"
Cons: "On time, food is ok."
Cons: "Tray table had mold growing on it. And Iberia airlines operated flight masked as British airways"
Pros: "the flight crew was cordial and efficient. we arrived on time."
Cons: "The planes were older and the seats were not comfortable for the length of the flights."
Pros: "Took forever to board. Had to take a bus to plane. Last on, no overhead space."
Pros: "Food, entertainment (great monitors), new cabins."
Pros: "Very limited - no vegetarian option. Was not enough quantity. No snacks in between"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was great also. As the plane wasn't full, I was able to move my seat and have two seats which was lovely. Thank you"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane. I had a jacket on and socks and used two of the blankets and was still cold. I also had tried to contact Iberia to order a special meal, but was not able to get through on the line even though I tried for several days. I also was not able to figure out how to order a meal on-line. I was disappointed with the choices of movies."
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Pros: "It was nice flight"
Cons: "I ordered an extra check in bag which got messed up on this flight. Only three movies available to watch"
Pros: "Quick, comfortable flight. Lovely crew."
Cons: "Food and beverage only available for purchase, nothing complimentary. No entertainment."
Pros: "Speed of boarding and free wine!"
Cons: "Despite asking the crew 3x, the TV in my seat did not work. Each time I asked it was like they were hearing it for the first time. They wrote down my seat number and never came back. Thankfully I had a book! The seats were horribly uncomfortable and my legs and behind went numb several times. The food was awful and I regret eating it as I had a stomachache for several hours."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I think the Brie cheese I ate made me sick afterward. I wish the staff had brought water around more."
Pros: "Flight attendant didnt help to pup up my luggage; even water was not free"
