Top 4 airlines serving Boston Logan Intl to Edinburgh Turnhouse
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seats were comfy and the pilots were skilled, food was average."
Cons: "The handles in between the seats could've been better by being able to be completely raised."
Cons: "elayed, bad and rood personal, bad food. I am last time use Finnair."
Pros: "Business class consisted of the same cramped seating as economy. No entertainment at all for the 6+ hour flight. Horrible food."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, and I got an empty seat next to me! Food was served on time (an hour into the flight, and about two hours from the destination). The options were decent particularly the caserole in terms of portions. Plenty of overheard compartment space, even with a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The arm rest between seats doesn't raise to the full upright position, only one-half way. The TV needed to be reset by the purser due to it being stuck on kiddie mode. If you're a snacker, bring food."
Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"
Pros: "рейсы точно по расписанию, без задержек, персонал внимателный"
Cons: "заказала и оплатила билеты за 4 месяца до перелета, а получила место в самолпте на самом последнем ряду у туалета"
Pros: "Everything, but especially the calming atmosphere with beautiful Spanish music playing while we were airing to take off."
Cons: "It is too hard to carry stuff on the stairs at the airports"
Cons: "Could not watch any video on screen. Crew tried to reboot my and my partner's screens but they did not work for the 9-hour flight."
Cons: "A very very small plane. Cold staff"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Only drinks with dinner, other airlines serve the whole time. Limited selection of drinks. Other airlines do not limit. Not enough leg room and I'm only 5'7. Seat in front leaned back to far."
Cons: "Plane too old for such a long flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks overpriced."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Our luggage never made it to Rome, our final destination. So now we have no change of clothes - for the next 2-3 DAYS."
Cons: "30 min between flying"
Pros: "Not much to enjoy"
Cons: "The service. 3 hour late flight, had to rebook my connection out of my own pocket. After we got on the plane, we find out the issues were not fixed and had to wait another hour. Terrible food. Yogurt was actually expired, so I had no breakfast. People were all nice as they told me I should have booked the flights together. Hmmm... Maybe you should not have been 4 hours late. I planned my trip with more than enough time to make connection... Called about my travel insurance and found out it kicked in after 6 hour delay. Customer service should never make you feel like the issue is your fault."
Pros: "Courtesy of staff was top notch"
Cons: "Older plane. Entertainment system very dated poor screen quality."
Pros: "British airways offers amazing entertainment selections on the Screens over 25, food was good"
Cons: "Check in line was terrible, I had checked in online but still waited over a hour to bag drop, service was not great either the flight attendants were not happy at thier job.."
Pros: "The crew were lovely, as were the people checking us in at the airport!"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours to fix a water problem on the tarmack and were seated in the middle of a large group of school kids. Would have been happier without those 2 elements."
Cons: "After waiting around in the airport for almost 10 hours we were finally told the flight was cancelled and my direct flight turned into a taxi transfer and 3 flights with a day lost on my vacation. I was not offered any compensation however I heard some passengers were given $7 food vouchers to be spent only in a small convenience store that was the only store open."
Pros: "I like the Airbus A330 model's that AA flies from Charlotte on European destinations. They are the former USAir A330's and they are nice both in business and economy. There are no premium economy seats on this version. And Charlotte is an excellent airport to fly from/to."
Cons: "I wish there was a premium economy offering on this plane. The first row of economy is sold as such but is really nothing like prem economy apart from additional legroom."
Cons: "American Airlines charged me 100.00 dollars for 1 extra luggage, ridiculous! !!!! Also we took off 1 hour late without any notice..... Flight to Europe with AA sucks..."
Pros: "Personnel were very nice and fight was comfortable"
Cons: "Received an email 30 minutes before leaving for airport that flight was on time. Went to the airport and found out flight was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "The meeting I was attending in NY got postponed so I lost the full 1/2 return ticket. Nothing I could do, all at once all kinds of small text appear in big and over 400 $ was lost. This is the last time I book with Kayak. Better pay a bit more directly with the airline but do not have a deal like the Kayak deal. So please remove from all your sites. Thank you VV"
Pros: "British air is great. Great movies good food. Good service."
Pros: "The fact that this is the only daytime flight from Boston to Europe."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, and drink choices may have been theoretically available but the crew did not offer the choices."
Pros: "I thought the BA/American/Finnair flight was excellent. The food was delicious both ways, much superior to United, American or Continental which I often fly. Excellent food, legroom, inflight entertainment (going out my row of seats - well, nobody could get any entertainment access) all was very good. Loved the newspaper choice when leaving Gatwick. I would definitely recommend again."
Cons: "Passengers changing seats around."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Finnair subcontract to British Airways so this was a BA flight at a better price. Flight was far from full enabling me to stretch out."
Cons: "Unable to pre select seats because the arrangement makes you neither a full BA or Finnair customer. Food was just about edible and that was the better non vegetable option. The plane was old and the in in seat screens were old too, with poor resolution (no touch screen to illustrate the aging technology). Although the entertainment selection was relatively current the aging connection in the arm rest, coupled with cheap ear buds made for a poor listening experience."
Pros: "It was not Finnair it was all British airways."
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats, very dated entertainment options, bland food."
Pros: "I thought the cabin crew were very helpful and friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seeds were too close together N20. You almost couldn't eat your food or all the laptop because you're so crowded."
Cons: "For an international flight I have never seen such small seats, the entertainment was awful. My tv was in black and white. I didn't even want to try the food as looked bad."
Pros: "Other than the fact that it's a direct flight from jfk to Helsinki, there's not much else to like about it"
Cons: "Even though we paid extra for comfort seats, the seats were extremely uncomfortable! Not just the lack of sufficient leg room (especially when the person in front reclined) but most importantly the quality of the cushions. They were like cardboard and extremely uncomfortable to sit on. We were not able to sleep at all due to the discomfort! Additionally, they lost my luggage. It has been more than 24 hrs since I landed and I still haven't heard anything from them as to where my luggage was, when I should expect it why it still hasn't been delivered. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "Nice company with good personnel."
Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."
Cons: "Long wait after boarding waiting for bus. Bus out to plane. After boarding, horrible stench of fuel fumes inside plane. Probably very unhealthy and carcinogenic."
Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"
Pros: "It was a wonder flight. Great staff!!! highly recommended."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "I never took it because....."
Cons: "your customer service agent refused to help, and I had to fly to New York and take a different flight to London, and the whole thing cost me an extra $2900."
Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."
Cons: "Most of the entertainment consoles did not work"
Cons: "very old plane, food choices limited, entertainment system not working"
Pros: "First time across the Atlantic, and the British/French crew was the most polite crew ever."
Pros: "Short good flight, with no issues. Friendly crew that were very professional."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Seats are snug. You get to know your neighbors really well."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful cabin crew. Excellent boarding procedures. The food wasn't awful. Everyone seemed relaxed and upbeat...maybe because the holidays are approaching."
Cons: "The rolls were ice cold, and the butter was not real butter. My husband found the seats cramped, and little foot room. I'm 5'2" and they were ok for me. The child behind me screamed and then projectile vomited for the last half hour of the flight, which can't be laid at BS's door. Many people were still on their cell phones and laptops during the whole takeoff, despite multiple announcements. I would have kicked them off."
Pros: "The selection of movies was great. Boarding happened super fast and plane departed early."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly cold! Touch screen didn’t work well. Breakfast was lame. Flight attendants were super loud during breakfast service even though the lights were still dimmed."
Cons: "Supposed to leave Boston at 9:30 pm, instead 1:30 am. It was said they knew this the day before and sent emails to passengers. No one who I spoke to, including myself, got one. Aer Lingus hired another carrier to do this flight—plane, crew —no Aer Lingus personnel. Everyone was nice, but. Had made arrangement for early morning checkin. Got to the hotel SO late that they waved a fee and had our room ready. Was going to sightsee the first afternoon—basically lost a day of seeing Dublin."
Pros: "Overall it was a great flight."
Pros: "My mother uses a wheelchair and the service for her was outstanding"
Pros: "On Board Gate Connection info. A great convenience. Also, NO SECURITY check! for connecting flights. Why not at other airport-hubs?"
Cons: "Most of the flight 'COLD WIND DDRAFT'. Had to use 2 blankets. Staff said it will warm up as we cruise higher! Where does that logic come from? Outside temperature plummets as one goes higher!"
Pros: "No delays. Reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "Not a single vegetarian option on the flight ??!?"
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable, Entertainment was good, crew was friendly"
Cons: "You now have to pay for beer and wine and a long haul flight on a major carrier…"
Pros: "Lights were on for the initial meal but relaxed for light breakfast snack."
Cons: "Cramped space and seats very uncomfortable. Terminal two not great either"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Food was good, individual entertainment system was good."
Cons: "Cramped spaces"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "The seats were exceptionally narrow. Seats were firm and uncomfortable, my entire body was aching and it was impossible to sleep bc the cabin lights were on the entire flight . I’ve flown to Europe via British airways before and I can’t even compare the two. THe thought of having to fly back in the same aircraft is giving me cold sweats and i wish I didn’t have to"
Pros: "Pretty good flight for a good price."
Cons: "It would be so nice to have tea and/or coffee served before landing. oming in at 5am or 1am North America time is difficult and if you have to travel more that day a cup of coffee or tea sure would help. Serving tea and coffee at ten pm after serving dinner isnt good if you want to sleep..just keep it warm and serve it before we land."
Pros: "On time, no lost luggage, Entertainment system when working."
Cons: "Seats next to toilette doors, entertainment system not working one of the four booked seats"
Pros: "Jet blue had best seats by far and Dunkin Donut coffee was to die for"
Pros: "Flight crew was great! Food was better than most airlines I’ve flown. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Having to pay for a glass of wine with dinner... every other airline I fly gives free alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "Nothing but the price, flight was Aer Lingus to PRA and was less than expected"
Pros: "Nice staff. Reserved. Comfortable seats! Spacious."
Cons: "Movie and music selection. Classic Movies? Please...Where was The Godfather, Gone with the Wind, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Rocky, Annie Hall, Die Hard."
Cons: "No coffee for breakfast and the food for breakfast"
Pros: "Check-in was quick and easy. The plane was on time."
Cons: "The seating was cramped. The video screen did not work and after rebooting the selections were poor. I would have enjoyed a current live steam news program."
Pros: "Fast. Not too much time wasted between connection. Dublin = small airport, it's really comfortable..."
Cons: "Not enough room for my legs Too close to the "babies rows" = difficult to sleep. It's a pity to pay now to change a seat in the same category"
Pros: "We had an excellent experience flying with Aer Lingus! We had a little trouble in the beginning due to my husbands CPAP machine. We did not realize you need a doctor’s note in order to fly! The first girl, Ajla, was sweet and just doing her job as she explained to us that we needed the note. My husband and I were upset, but she remained calm and kept a smile on her face. She got her supervisor, Ismail, to help us with our situation. We were able to resolve our problem with his help and check into our flight. Sean P helped us check into our flight and got us all situated. Ismail was amazing and upgraded our seats AND escorted us through security to make sure we would get to our flight with extra time to relax before we boarded! After our rocky start at check in Ismail made everything all better!! I highly recommend this Aer Lingus team at Logan International Airport!"
Pros: "Attentive staff, always smiling and helpful, well done air Lingus"
Cons: "So little leg room!"
Pros: "Entertaining TV options"

Pros: "I was very much impressed with Aer Lingus. First time with this airline, and everyone was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The food was limited in choice. It was okay though."
Pros: "The effort made by the flight crew to find someone who was willing to switch their emergency exit seat with my cramped seat."
Cons: "Seating was really a disgrace. Being 6'3" made it unbearable. Seats are way too narrow and leg room non existent. Especially if the person in front of you reclined their seat."
Pros: "Everyone was polite and helpful... and we were on time !"
Pros: "The individual seat provided me with privacy and a window seat, as well as the comfort of being able to lay down flat. And the chair had a massage option!"
Cons: "The buttons to change seat alignment are too sensitive. Several times during the flight I just grazed my arms on the panel and my seat alignment moved."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The fact that beer and wine had to be paid for. It is such a small thing to make passengers welcome and feel good on their trip! Lufthansa and Swiss Air don't charge for alcohol on transatlantic flights."
Pros: "Louise (on Aerlingus) was a tremendous help to me throughout the flight. Kind, welcoming, and professional. It was because of her service that I am giving my flight as high of a review as I am."
Cons: "My seat cushion was so worn down that I felt like I spent the flight against two boards."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats that do not always work properly (the recline will recline too much and not go back up)"
Pros: "Great movie and music selection. Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Entertainment would have been great.. if my screen didn't keep blanking out."
Cons: "They ran out of Sheppard's pie!!"
Pros: "Dublin is easier to transfer in than LHR"
Pros: "Having two seats together but separate from the others. The departure time and connection to Edinburgh were also convenient."
Cons: "As with most other airlines, I don't like not having a direct flight from Boston to Edinburgh."
Cons: "very confusing to print boarding passes"
Cons: "It was supposed to be a British airways flight but it ended up being an aer lingus flight."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and the plane was clean."
Cons: "The rows were terribly tight (no one in my group is over 5'1" and neither of us could cross our legs). The cabin was too bright and the announcements were too frequent to be able to rest."
Cons: "11 hours in Heathrow. I will use another airline just to avoid Heathrow next time. You chnged my itinerary putting me there for 11 hours. This was not my choice"
Pros: "The in-flight staff were also very helpful."
Pros: "Great service overall!"
Cons: "The wifi did not work"
Cons: "The food was not tasty. Poor flavor. I had the Shepherds pie. And although I was grateful to have a meal offered, this one was a little off in flavor."
Pros: "Great flight, smooth, nice crew, newer movies to watch, I couldn't ask for anything more"
Pros: "The crew was incredible!"
Pros: "Not much. Very disappointed It was no working tv. Plane again dirty. Uncomfortable seats. Made it difficult to travel with children."
Cons: "Same as above. I was very surprised"
Pros: "Only $32 per person and you get to board with business class."
Cons: "Not enough leg room.."
Pros: "I got the last window seat. Grab your seats early! When going to Dublin to Warsaw I was asked to take the exit row, which was an added bonus room wise. Crew was pleasant on both flights."
Cons: "Food was OK, just 2 choices. Wish in Dublin the connections could be closer gate wise."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Video sound and display constant glitch extremely hard to watch or listen to shows Extremely large woman passenger next to me flight attented offer to move her I wish I spoke up."
Pros: "Uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "The food was ok but what do you expect from airline food."
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and addressed the crew and passengers multiple times with updates."
Pros: "Was just very comfortable seats and a great crew"
Pros: "Boarding process was very orderly. The 2-4-2 seating arrangement is quite nice for economy as it is a bit more spacious & comfortable. Sat in window seat with a huge compartment storage next to me by window - great for easy access to electronics, etc.. Great movie selection. Short and efficient flight and my fears about basic economy ticket were dissipated as I was able to check a bag and get better seat assignment at airport."
Cons: "Slow service, not served dinner until almost 10pm. Lights were never turned down so difficult to sleep altho I had eye mask and noise cancelling headphones. Seats are not super comfortable but if you bring neck pillow and blanket it’s better."
Cons: "A 2-hour layover was too short. We experienced crazy long lines for: the bus between terminals, immigration passport review; passport review before the metal detector, and detailed tests on permitted volumes of shampo, and toothpaste. The agent forced me to check a normally permitted carryon bag, then the bags took 45 minutes to be placed on the turnstile after the flight. Not an efficient airport."
Pros: "I’m always impressed with the friendly and caring nature of the British Airlines staff. They always go the extra mile (or km) to make sure that you’re happy."
Cons: "The food, but who flys for the meal"
Pros: "Flew business, so attention was great."
Cons: "Seats are awkward and for business, not necessarily the best. Entertainment is vast but when you fly round trip, it can be repetitive."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."
Pros: "The BA crew made every effort to insure a comfortable overnight flight. The crew were attentive in roaming without being intrusive. They seemed well drilled in serving on a red eye flight."
Pros: "The seat was fine. the flight was as expected."
Cons: "expectation that one will fly with only one carry-on bag and not receive any food or beverage during the flight. industry trend is ridiculous ..."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "Late. No other flights to Milan for 12 plus hours. Rerouted to a different airport. Rental car at Mxp so have to taxi back and forth. Missed tours etc. no apparent reason for being late. Weather was fine."
Pros: "Flight left on time, plane was clean, entertainment options were good and flight attendants were cordial."
Cons: "Food was marginal- avoid the chicken curry."
Pros: "Crew was mostly kind and helpful. My bags arrived at their final destination."
Cons: "I was told that I had to check my bag because it would not fit in the overhead bin. When I got on the plane I found that the overhead bins were ample sized for my hiking pack. I know that British Airways has a policy regarding bags in overhead bins that basically says 'if you cannot lift your bag into the overhead bin un-assisted, you must check your bag.' My husband and I are both experienced hikers, we lifted our packs unassisted on the last plane, yet they forced us to check our bags. I'm glad our bags made it to the UK, but this is literally the first time I've checked a bag and had it arrive. Also, the boarding passes sent to me on my phone were rejected by almost every security/boarding check. This is after BA supposedly fixed their error with the previous boarding passes. Overall not pleased with the experience but glad I paid under $300 for my ticket."
Cons: "Everything was sub par with BA. We upgraded to world traveler plus and the seats were old, there was trash from the previous flight and the tv screens were from 1995. The movies are only on loop so when you take off and are finally allowed to turn on the tv, the movies are 25 minutes in. All around a waste of money. Will never fly BA AGAIN!!"
Pros: "Missed my connection. Been at airport 6 hrs to get to Milan"
Cons: "Boston crew not checking me in and missing my connection"
Pros: "Crew was great, food was excellent."
Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and nice."
Cons: "I have never seen seats with such little leg room."
Pros: "Did not even fly"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled due to weather. This happens. But it was the worst customer service experience I have ever had. I spoke with four people at British Airways and five people at the booking agent. Nobody wwpuld verify anything. British Air even said at one point “you are not a customer because you booked through an agent”. That gentleman would not even transfer me to a supervisor for help. He told me “they didn’t exist”. I will never attempt to fly them again."
Pros: "6 hours, no audio port to listen to movies or music or news, poor food “Mechanical” steward service"
Pros: "Checking in efficient, lounge comfortable"
Cons: "Average service. Crew not very interested."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful - much better than my experiences recently on SwissAir and TAP. That made the difference between an acceptable flight experience and a good one. Food and entertainment options were fine - nothing to write home about."
Cons: "My food tray was broken - okay to eat on but hopefully fixed soon."
Pros: "The staff was polite and the entertainment was good. The seats were ok."
Cons: "It was too cold, even after throwing the blanket over me. The breakfast was disappointing, just a small granola bar to eat, more like a snack then bfast. They did not distribute the hot towels or wipes after waking us up."
Pros: "Courteous service"
Pros: "I was not made to board the plane because I didn't have a transit visa to London causing me to be stranded in Boston.i called the customer service a month before my departure but he was not able to tell me to get a transit visa to London before my departure"
Cons: "British airways were not helpful....webjet costumer service did not also provide me with enough information before booking me on the flight...I therefore need a refund of my money ASAP"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the crew got out of he way when I went to the bathroom."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, everyone ran to board and it wasn't clear who could board when, there was no wifi on the plane, the "screens in the headrest" were not functioning, and the ones that were were SO OLD that you could see the lines on the screen where you were supposed to touch, entertainment was terrible, and we sat on the runway for over three hours because "the left engine wasnt starting" only to discover two hours later that a latch was frozen which is why it didn't start, so they defrosted it and then we flew. WTF?!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Minimal meal service for a tras atlantic flight"
Cons: "they have removed the eye mask and toothbrush from the long-haul night life kit. Also the new seat have different headrests, that don't bend"
Cons: "I arrived about 45 mins before the departure time and they refused to let my 85 year old sick dad in a wheel chair board. They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"
Cons: "The seats go very far back which makes it extremely uncomfortable when the person in front of you has it all the way down the entire flight. Left me no room to put my tray down."
Pros: "Slept most of the way. Cabin looked new, so that was nice."
Cons: "Having to gate check my bag even though it fit in the overhead bin."
Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."
Cons: "I was unable to check-in online or select seats, and was thus relegated to a middle seat. Never happens when I book directly at ba.com - so clearly, they penalize people who book through an airfare wholesale site. In addition, they typically offer an upgrade promotion ($$) online or at time of check-in, but when I asked they said they weren't offering any - despite a colleague who booked directly on ba.com being offered one. Won't ever make that mistake again - not worth it."
Cons: "The first beverage service on the flight was 30 min before landing."
Pros: "Seats great"
Cons: "Entertainment system is old, food is bad, seats are as tight as American airline, flight was delayed for silly reason"
Pros: "Very smooth, easy to book special meal. Helpful attendants"
Cons: "It was all godd-only wished I had direct all the way"
Pros: "Nothing. At. All."
Cons: "This was a nightmare. BA had no flights available to Edinburgh. Booked on 3 separate flights at 2 different airports. Last one was canceled outright. After being awake for 28 hours and traveling for 15, we finally were given a hotel room for the night in London. Still trying to get to Edinburgh."
Pros: "Food was OK, crew was nice. I loved having my own TV and access to movies, games, series, etc."
Cons: "What I really dod not enjoy is the seats. They are extremely small and tight. I literally was pressed between the two people sitting next to me. I didn't have space to even bend down to grab my bag.I could not sleep a wink and was extremely hot."
Cons: "Incredibly, when we went to the British Airways desk to check in they said they didn't have our tickets (!). They put us on standy-by even though we'd booked the tickets and paid in full seven months in advance. Once we eventually got on the plane, it blew a tire on the tarmac and took five (!) hours to fix. There was another short delay finding a gate once we landed in Heathrow, then they lost my luggage and I've yet to receive it. Far and away the worst flight I've ever taken. Avoid BA if you can."
Pros: "we got on the plane fast,"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delay leaving plaen was old and the seats were in rough shape"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. Meals were decent for airline food. Blankets, headphones, and even a toothbrush were provided."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed departing which made for a long journey becoming even longer. Seating area fairly cramped in economy class (not too surprising I suppose). Rude Brit behind me kicking and pushing my chair because like 90% of the other passengers I reclined my chair on this overnight flight and he took that as a personal affront. Not the airlines fault I had the only jackass on the flight directly behind me, but impactful none the less."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "No entertainment or USB or power for charging"
Pros: "That it got to my destination, eventually."
Cons: "The co-flight wasn't made clear to me. This was an American Airlines flight as is my return. Beyond the brand and gate confusion that resulted from this, the flight was delayed a couple hours and the plane looked like it hadn't been refurbished since the 70s."
Pros: "Efficient which isn't something I take for granted."
Cons: "Couldn't get the temps under control according to the stewardess and it was freezing the entire flight. Thank god for the blankets!"
Cons: "The only issue we had with our travels in London had to do with the Heathrow Intl Airport. We were unaware that we would be required to go through security again. This held us up and almost made us miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "On time Easy and no issues"
Cons: "Late and bad communication"
Pros: "Not much. There was one flight attendant that seemed pleasant but I wouldn’t know for sure since the attendants ignored all passengers except for those who had preordered their meals."
Cons: "It was extremely frustrating that there was no kiosk available when checking in. I did not have a bag to check, yet I waited on a ridiculously long line to check in for my flight. The people working the desk at the gate were slow and unpleasant. Service on plane was terrible."
Pros: "Fine flight once we were in the air."
Cons: "There were NO SIGNS saying it was a level flight, not Iberia. No one at Iberia check in desk etc. We eventually figured it out after a while. In general Iberia and level are short staffed and unorganized. If you're willing to deal with this, it's an affordable option and they'll get you from A to B."
Cons: "Crew was friendly to some people and completely ignored others, or at least me. Not sure if they knew Passenger status or what."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok, had holl rodarte options and good variety"
Cons: "Seats are hard, no leg space, no elbow space, the upright is 90degrees. The crew is not helpful, to the point and act like they are doing you a favor by being there. In one instance the attendant told a passenger "you can move your bag, or I will move it for you." To another passenger, without prev"
Pros: "It was fine."
Cons: "Seats are a little crammed."
Pros: "seat empty next to me"
Cons: "food, flight attendants"
Pros: "Don’t feel fully informed of what is going on. Had overhead bin opened and seat reclined during takeoff."
Cons: "Gbhbhfhyhyugfrrfffffgggffccxccccvvgfcvgvggbbvvgcvvv. B"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Ticket had no info on baggage allowance. Got charged $55 for one piece. Website has glitches that would not save passport info. Flight attendant did nothing. Did not ask people to have their seats upright during landing. No food or even water for a 7 hour flight unless you pay. Seat uncomfortable. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Nothing -- though seat was okay. No leg room, but it reclined a little, and had those foldable headrests."
Cons: "The boarding was supposed to be by zone, but was just a mad rush. They served no food, not even for money. There was an onscreen ordering option, but for the entire flight it said "this service is temporarily closed". They didn't have a beverage cart. Not even water or coffee. I couldn't even get a cup of water to swallow some ibuprofen and an allergy pill (somebody brought a companion cat, I suspect, quite near to me). No food or water on an international flight across the Atlantic??? You've got to be kidding me -- that's gotta be close to illegal, not providing any means of hydration. But it's certainly cheap, mean, and unacceptable. Pathetic, too."
Pros: "Iberia is awesome, they are so nice and accomodating, I appreciate the time that they spent making me feel comfortable. The food was awesome!"
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfort during flight."
Cons: "Confusion at time of boarding."
Pros: "The movie/tv selection was extensive"
Cons: "I’ve never had such a bad meal on a plane. I don’t expect fine dining but I felt sick to my stomach afterward. My flight sat in by the tarmac for an hour. I only made my connection because that flight was also an hour late. Boarding was really chaotic."
Pros: "I was sitting in primer economy with lots of legroom. It was good service, on- time flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Crappy plane for an international flight"
Pros: "After fixing the mistake they gave us two adjacent seats on the plane."
Cons: "I came with a friend. At first we were given 2 boarding passes, both with my name. We continued to security where they found the problem. We had to go back to the check-in counter and they reprinted boarding passes. This time names correct but both for the same seat. Only after a long while they were able to fix it. The Iberia crew barely spoke English. Overall - made mistakes, wasted a lot of our time."
Pros: "Fast boarding, good entertainment and arrived early"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. Chicken with beAns and mashed potatoes dry."
Pros: "The Iberia crew person named Ms. TENORIO was excellent. As an American with disabilities, I felt safe, protected and assisted throughout the flight with my various requests and needs. The rest of the crew was also .efficient and pleasant. Finnair&Iberia are tops."
Cons: "Logan Airport in Boston, Terminal E was so upsetting. There was NOBODY to help me. I arrived early because I am disabled. There should be somebody there at all times. Very distressing-=- me in a wheel chaiir with 2 suitcases and ZERO assistance. I felt helpless and sad."
Pros: "First time flying El Al. Hopefully my last. They delayed the flight to give three people - two of whom were ladies iver the age of fifty - intensive security screens. I was given one as well. They took my laptop, one of my pbones, my tanlet, and my headphones. This would havr neen bearable if El Al invested in its cabins, but that doesnt seem the case. The headphones provided were similar to models from the 90s (and worked just as well), there was no individual screen for entertainment, and the seats were exceedingly cramped. At least the Wi-Fi was free."
Pros: "Nothing about the seating"
Cons: "The person in front of me was so close that when she tried to recline the seat she hurt my knee."
Pros: "OTP, the plane was modern, high load factor, which means that this flight is doing good. The wifi was also good,"
Cons: "Only 4 bathrooms for the whole economy and premium economy classes and only at the center of the plane. No snacks between dinner and breakfast."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice"
Cons: "Some more space"
Pros: "Hospitality, patience, and efficiency. Everything was clean, the food was warm and tasty. the employees were kind and polite all the time. The technology functioned flawlessly. The standard seats were a bit tight but manageable."
Pros: "On time, boarded quickly, smooth.food was decent. Beautiful new aircraft that actually felt fairly spacious (all relative of course)."
Cons: "late departure from boston resulted in late arrival in madrid.More than 12 passengers missed the connecting flight to malaga by about ten minutes. iberia could have delayed the flight to malaga and its customers would have had a much better day."
Cons: "Missed connection from Chicago. International connections need more time to complete"
Pros: "Check-in was fast and efficient in Boston. Crew was friendly with good service."
Cons: "No legroom. If they're giving this little legroom they shouldn't allow seats to recline."
Pros: "At this moment only the entertaiment."
Cons: "I would have like them to have been more humane and provided me with enough information so I could go ahead and get me something clean to wear right away. Tonight after I called they still don't have information on my luggage, and overall should have a better management, cause once I give my luggage to them, I expect them to care for it, that is implied on the customer service agreement."
Pros: "I had my reservations about Iberia air after reading reviews of them online so was surprised that my trip was pleasant. The food was actually one of the best I had in a while for an international flight and flight was on time. Service was courteous and prompt too, for the low price I couldn't have asked for more."
Cons: "I couldn't get my touch screen to work so didn't watch movies. But I also didn't bother to ask the stewardesses and just went to sleep. The seats were just the right size for me but can see ow it might be a problem for larger people. I'm guessing the seats are European size?"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating to the fact that I didn't speak too much Spanish"
Cons: "I wasn't sure my chicken was cooked. There was enough other good anyway, I wasn't hungry."
Pros: "It was on time, very smooth flight. Price was great, bought last November, $365 round trip non stop"
Cons: "Seats too close together"
Pros: "Emergency exit seats. Very narrow though."
Cons: "I don't know what they served us. I wouldn't call that food. Breakfast was even more depressing than dinner. No entertainment system, except those collective screens – everybody needs to watch the same movie. Staff was rude and flight was 2 and half hours LATE."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/pescatarian meals available so I literally ate bread rolls for dinner & the tv audio was broken. I paid $40 for 45 MB of WIFI so that I could work and the internet lasted about 10 minutes. i couldn't even send an email within that time. The tv screen itself kept flipping back down to the aisle. Finally, the temperature was freezing & the bathrooms were disgusting."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "They were very unhelpful in flight changes and schedule changes. I was very disappointed in all the travel agents we spoke with. They were all very unhelpful except for one lady who helped change our reservations. I will not be flying Iberia, British Airways, or Americans airlines ever again. My experience was terrible."
Pros: "I thought almost everything about the flight was great (lots of leg room, courteous staff, nice entertainment, short flight even arriving slightly early."
Cons: "The only thing that I wish was different was that they had a vegetarian food option available"
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: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "We had paid for reserved seats. When we got to the gate they were not there. Got bad seats to fly six hours. Left an item on the plane. No help tracking it down. No one would give us a phone number or how to go about locating it."
Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"
Cons: "Flt attendants unnecessarily bossy."
Pros: "Everything was fine but the tight seat 12D from Madrid to T Avivsee"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Staff, entertainment, food and the plane itself were all good."
Cons: "Leg room not great, but better than most planes."
Pros: "Flight was early to Madrid (i.e. shorter duration than planned)."
Cons: "Not enough discipline in the boarding process. No enforcement of the carry-on luggage policy. People were bringing on 3-4 small bags and taking all of the overhead space."
Pros: "Fast boarding, excellent entertainment, crew were friendly and helpful. Arrived 45 min early, which made the drive to downtown easy."
Cons: "Check in online was useless, still had to stand in line to check luggage. Food was ok, kind of mushy chicken, cold bread, and minuscule salad. Breakfast was a sad cold and dry ham and cheese croissant."
Pros: "Food, comfort, crew stand out. Check in very quick and efficient. Everyone helpful."
Cons: "Unable to get to connecting flight in time available - this itinerary should not be sold. wasted 4 hours in Madrid and my ride in Jerez wasted time also. Many people from my flight and others were in the same position."
Cons: "We paid $30 each way for extra legroom, but our seats did not provide it, and there were no empty seats available in the appropriate rows to correct the error. As happened before the airline pleaded a "change of aircraft" with no extra legroom seats. We were somewhat accommodated by being re-seated in the middle section with an empty seat between us, but this was not what we preferred or needed."
Pros: "My flight boarded easily, and left on time. The seats were comfortable, the food included a hot meal for dinner, and the entertainment available was varied. We even landed in Madrid a little early. Traveling is always trying, especially in coach. The Iberia experience was very pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing really stands out unless you want to make coach like 1st class for the same price"
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."
