i had to go thru security in Boston to get on plane. that is normal. landed in Madrid to get my connecting flight to alicante. they made me go thru security twice to get on the plane. i had to run almost 1 mile to make the plane with a bacpack and carryon..im 72 years old...only good thing is that a made the flight. sweating and very hot. the girl brought me a glass of water with ice without me asking..she was an angel from god.
I love Iberia... superior airline
Very unhelpful in locating me as a passenger
oh man the situation with the bus on arrival
Pros: "On time Easy and no issues"
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"
Cons: "Being put in standby after we booked 3 months in advance and loosing our luggage"
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: "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: "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: "Good, quick flight!"
Cons: "Being told that we could not bring cabin luggage on board with us when there were empty seats and luggage space around us."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice"
Cons: "Some more space"
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."
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: "We arrived on time and safely."
Cons: "Like everyone says, you are cattle jammed in a sardine can. Barely any leg room and I’m 5’3. Other thoughts: the plane was old, my seat had a lump in it, zero entertainment, food was over priced. (3 Euro for a tiny water). This may seem petty but ultimately the appearance and function of the plane represents their company as a whole. From my first impressions, I’m thinking as a passenger is: I just hope the age and appearance of the plane isn’t reflective of their repairs and maintenance work as well."
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: "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."
Cons: "Despite seeing a crew bring 3 pieces of luggage to the plane, since the cargo was closed they turned around and 1 of those was my luggage which arrived a day later. The flight was late departing and then required to circle the airport and then the luggage did not make it."
Pros: "Everything was fine but the tight seat 12D from Madrid to T Avivsee"
Cons: "See above"
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."
All good, no flight service due strike
Due to à huge delay from previous flight we missed the check in time. In royal jordanian Website, it is said that check in closed 45 minutes before departure , but it really closed 60 minutes before. We arrived 50 minutes before. We are really disappointed about that.
Pésimo servicio. Nos movieron el horario del vuelo lo cual afectó nuestro itinerario y la atención telefónica imposible. Nos presentamos al nuevo vuelo que nos asignaron y a pesar de tener asientos space plus el vuelo estaba sobrevendido y no no los dieron pero tampoco nos regresaron lo que habíamos pagado por ellos. El personal no fue nada amable, ni en el check in, ni en el abordaje ni en el vuelo.
You did not confirmed my flight from time to Tunez and I had to buy a new ticket. Now you need to redound me
We were sent to Malaga instead of Granada due to weather. Although we were bussed to Granada, arriving 4 hours later, there was no further assistance or information from a representative. More communication would have been helpful and appreciated.
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Three hour delay. Seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "One of the crew member was really rude, she made a mistake went off on me and didn’t even apologize, she act like nothing happened, I tried reaching out to the airline and they never got back to me"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "It was flawless, no improvements needed"
Pros: "Nothing wouldn’t fly with them again"
Cons: "Make sure you have a ticket with a selected seat or else they will not let you board, they overbook flights very often!"
Cons: "The santorini airport is a mess. Our flight was delayed nearly an hour because the tiny airport wasn’t able to handle the amount of flights they had coming in and going out at the same time"
Cons: "My passport was stolen and the airline couldn’t help me at all as far as reimbursement or travel voucher. It was just a tough situation."
Cons: "They closed the gates on time despite the flight being nearly 2 hours late. So, passengers sat in the plane for about 4.5 hours for a 2h flight."
Cons: "chairs can't go backwards and are very thin. unpleasant experience for a 4 hours flight..."
Pros: "Punctuality and safety"
Cons: "Food options are very limited"
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "I have not gotten my baggage for my flight I have been here 3 days after I landed"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Pros: "It was easy. Very cheap. On time."
Cons: "Seats are not great. But you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Thr flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was delayed with no reason and I missed my check in. I specifically purchased this flight vs the one at 10 pm to not miss check in. Ugh! 20 euro late fees. So, I paid more for the flight (because the 7pm was more than the 10 pm) and now I have to pay a late fee to check in. On top of that, I paid an additional service fee by booking though FlightNetwork and they did not book my checked luggage like the price breakdown said. It’s been terrible and a waste of time and money."
Pros: "The seats are good"
Cons: "They keep revising the plane departure time on their website/app but refused to announce changes in the terminal. Kayak sent me 10 updates about the scheduled departure. The airport had the initial one and no more"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no gate information till 18:40 - when flight was supposed to take off at 14:40 - then gate overcrowded by passengers from 3 different flights all to the same place. Crew members didnt know how to handle the situation and over 200 did not board the plane. However once taken to the plane lucky passengers had to wait outside on runway for approximately 40 mins as cabin crew also did not know how to handle the situation. Those with assigned seats did not get them and those with luggage to go in the cabin were informed there was no more space and luggage had to be put in the hold. We finally boarded the plane at approximately 8:40 but could not take off for another 2 hours where we were stuck on a small cramped space on a plane full to capacity not having eaten anything for hours with no idea of the progress of the situation. In conclusion I expect every passenger should receive a refund for not only the extrodinary 8 hour delay but for the mismanagement of the entire situation."
Pros: "Crew and Flight attendants were helpful, responsive and cheerful before, during and after the flight."
Cons: "I was not able to check into the flight online as the Kayak link sent me to an unknown page. It was not an Iberia flight but was operated by Veuling airlines, however was still unable to check in by going directly to the Veuling website. If you're not going to be allowed to check in online, that is one, thing, but it isn't great to be given a link that doesn't work and then be nervous that you are not going to get on your flight. The boarding process should be changed as it is a free for all and people are waiting in line on the jetway, when really they are waiting for the buses. I believe the plane was at Terminal 2, so we had to switch terminals via bus. Just seemed as though there should be a better process for boarding than lining up down the middle of the terminal or manage the process differently as we were boarding buses."
Cons: "unorganised deaprture @ barcelona airport where everyone was allowed to board at the same time. Also our flight way delayed but Vueling did not text anyone on our flight to inform us."
Cons: "Cancel connecting flight without offering alternatives on the same day. Confirmed another flight a week later of the intent flight without my consent. Had to rebook connecting flight a day earlier of the intent departure date, losing a day stay in B&B, and expense on transport due to different airports."
Cons: "It got deleyed i missed a bus because of that. It goy delayed because of a error with some luggage from other flight thatbwas sent to that flight."
Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "Staff were fine, lovely to check in online and not have to worry"
Cons: "Once onboard we sat for nearly an hour going nowhere"
Pros: "Everything perfect"
Cons: "Boarding via bus. I purchased priority ticket for priority boarding but in end priority was only from checkin to bus. Fortunately there were not so many passengers. it should be indicated in the flight information whether boarding is via bus or bridge."
Pros: "Easy boarding and smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn’t get there yet"
Pros: "Muy bueno y tranquilo el viaje"
Pros: "The personnel was pretty nice and we arrived on time."
Cons: "I have never been on a plane that crowded, there is not an inch to breath..."
Pros: "The music in the background was a nice touch to the flight."
Cons: "Insufficient leg room my knees touched the person infronts chair and when they reclined my knees were under pressure from the recline. It wasn’t very pleasant."
Pros: "The crew was nice and polite."
Pros: "It was affordable and the seats were comfortable enough. Can't recline, but I was only on the flight for an hour."
Cons: "Baggage fee, seat fee (if you want to choose your seat), and food wasn't free."
Pros: "Good price, on time, comfortable seat, crew was friendly both at boarding and on plane."
Cons: "The only thing i didnt like was that when we boarded, we got on a bus to take us to the plane. I had paid extra for priority boarding and seating but i ended up being one of the last people on the plane. It did not end up being an issue because there was plenty of ovwrhead space for my carryons but it could have been. Wifi would also be nice. Even if i had to pay wxtra for it."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive with the plane, we were not informed of the situation and waited for at least one hour before a passenger was told the luggage was left behind. The luggage did arrive after 90 minutes, still no explanation from the Vueling"
Pros: "Seat ok"
Cons: "1hr late with zero explanations or apologies. Like nothing happened. Slow boarding process as well. Never again vueling"
Pros: "Was given the Exit seat"
Cons: "Had to leave my hand luggage at check in because of fully booked flight And had to take out my laptop and carry it throughout the flight without case"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "The airline staff from check-in to dismissal were a big mess. No info, no help upon cancellation....Nothing."
Pros: "No tv or entertainment system which makes more sitting space. I like this."
Cons: "Was not what I expected when booking with British Airways. This low budget airline did not continue the level of service expected when I booked the trip. It was like riding a bus in the sky. #NoComplimentaryAnything"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, boarding was quick, it was a nice flight"
Cons: "As it was a night flight, it would have been nice if the lights would have been lowered so we could sleep and no entertainment if you couldn't sleep was provided"
Pros: "Vert kind and proffessional crew On time departure and flight"
Cons: "Lack of any free offer fof snacks or drinks Not even water was offered Very very limited legroom"
