Airline reviews

Pros: "The Cabin crew was amazing, the ICE entertainment has many options of movies and programs, the flight was smooth to Singapore."
Cons: "Keep the good work."

Pros: "comfortable seats. Flight duration was good. Layover was little longer. Overall good experience"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment was really good. The movie options were good. It was really nice that the movies were free. The pilot did a nice controlled landing and take off"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "too many little children"

Pros: "Great crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Business class seems to have slipped..... A little more cramped and not quite as comfortable.... (might be me getting old"

Pros: "Seats weren’t all that comfortable."
Cons: "Service and meals were good."

Pros: "Good food friendly staff"

Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."

Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"

Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"

Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "No respect from other passengers, lots of kicking seats, pulling on seats, babies crying. I will not take an Emirates flight from Dubai to Chicago again. I will choose another airline."

Pros: "Need a little more leg room. Staff made sure the toilets were clean."
Cons: "No footrest."

Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."

Pros: "Great business class seats with lay flat seats, attentive staff, great drinks, wine, food, recent movies and lots of choices."
Cons: "No separate pre-boarding area for business and first class. Beginning of boarding wasn't announced"

Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"

Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not many old Bollywood movies to select from..."

Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"

Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"
Cons: "My screen was not very responsive to touch. Was challenging to navigate. I couldn't clearly hear the PA announcements"

Pros: "Hospitality and food"

Cons: "Seat assignment and boarding process"

Pros: "Crew were very competent and nice."
Cons: "There was not enough overhead space for my carryon bag, so had to go further back in the plane to find space, this caused a problem when disembarking."

Pros: "Good Price with on first priority"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"

Cons: "Usually I have enjoyed the food but the food on the return flight was not palatable."

Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."

Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."

Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"

Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."

Pros: "On time and cheap flight"

Pros: "I did not like the vegetarian food that was offered"

Pros: "Everything is perfect."

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Like everything"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Softer seats more wholesome videos"

Pros: "The seat space, and the ability to recline the seat was surprising."
Cons: "It is what it is."

Pros: "Plane from Hong Kong to Chicago was full but the crew did their best to meet everyone's needs. The food was very good."
Cons: "Tried to check in online but the system would not allow me to submit my data. So check-in was not as smooth as it could be."

Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"

Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive and great service. Wonderful flat bed seats"

Cons: "The economy toilets were in a disgusting state half-way through the flight and a hostess told me not use Business Class toilets even though I was in Premoum Economy. The economy toilet was clearly a health hazard. Also, we were woken up for our 2nd meal 6 hours into the flight , with 8 hours to go"

Pros: "flight attendants were very sweet."
Cons: "Food, late both from and back ways."

Pros: "Business class passengers use Qantas lounge in Brisbane - fresh and well stocked. Boarding was hassle free and flat beds were very comfortable. Crew were helpful while being very busy."
Cons: "We had seats in the centre but ate at totally different times. Left aisle and right aisle worked a different schedule - annoying. Entertainment very high tech but odd selections."

Pros: "Good customer service."
Cons: "Could have used one more snack and more water although should have maybe asked. Dinner was good though."

Pros: "The movie selection + the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There were kids who were not well behaved. Their parents would not correct them, neither did the crew. There was a kid screaming and talking very loud behind me, while everyone was sleeping. I was unable to sleep on the flight, even with ear plugs. The kid sitting next to me was getting Play-doh everywhere, on me, the floor and all over the seats. He was also kicking the seat in front of him and his mother would not correct him. It would be helpful for the crew to say something to the parents, as some parents do not believe in discipline. The vegan food was very good on the flight to Hong Kong, but on the flight to Chicago it was bland. I was still very hungry after eating + did not get protein in the first meal. With the seat in front of me reclined all the way back, my knees were touching the back of the seat, my legs were swollen and in a lot of pain after the flight."

Pros: "Crew provided excellent service, seats were comfortable and food and drinks were great."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient The flight left and arrived on time The plane was clean"
Cons: "The self service check in and baggage drop at Brisbane was not effective, requiring a lot of staff intervention and help"

Cons: "Cancelation process was too poor customer service was also too poor. And high cancellation fee. Customer service representatives did not tell me when I am going get the money back and also weather my ticket is also canceled or not."

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "We were sitting at te back and it was very cold. Not sure why. They ran out of chicken for lunch."

Pros: "Efficient service."
Cons: "The sound jack on my seat was dysfunctional and the sound kept cutting out unless I had my hand on the jack for 12 hours. It was CX806 flight."

Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"

Pros: "I love the food, service and comfort I want make sure to fly with Cathay Pacific in my future flights. It’s all excellent! And I will probably recommend it to my family and friends."

Cons: "Lacking in inflight service after mid flight. Leaving 7 hours of nothing! So you arrive hungry both ways."

Pros: "I liked the movie selection they had for entertainment—many choices. Most of the staff were very friendly, but there was a bit of a language barrier which made it a little difficult to ask for something. They are also attentive, so if you press your call button, you don’t have to wait half an hour until someone helps you."
Cons: "Most of the meals were awful. I barely ate on the flights (except the dessert), but how good can airplane food be really... The seats are pretty tight and uncomfortable. They are too upright, making it very difficult to sleep. On one of their planes, the seats didn’t recline at all. I recommend paying a bit more for extra leg room ($150) or flying business or first class even (for long flights)."

Pros: "As usual, the crew was great and the planes and pilots are great also. CP is always punctual, as well."
Cons: "I'm 6-4 , so I enjoy any extra space I can get. For this reason, I like the CP planes that seem to have more space than competitors. However, when the person in front of me reclines for the ENTIRE flight, my screen is too low to watch, I cannot use my try to eat and its like having someone laying in your lap.........it should not be allowed ( reclining)."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for one hour."

Pros: "Flight staff was awesome. They were all so thoughtful and extremely positive. It made a long trip so much more enjoyable!"
Cons: "Nothing! Super pleasant experience"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and attentive."

Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"

Pros: "The crew was very organized. I travelled with a wheel chair assist friend, they made sure we were comfortable. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The food choices are well thought off. My only concern is the tenderness of the beef."

Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "The bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."

Pros: "The tv had decent selection. Crew were nice. Priced good"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic, after standing in line then they call for other rows and my place in line didn't matter it was a free for all rushing to get in line. No water.....they took my water and have high blood pressure so need water and they don't give enough. Food is mediocre"

Pros: "Good flight. Crew busy but pleasant."
Cons: "Difficulty hearing announcements - I have a hearing deficit - so it was hard to know what was going on. Wish there was a coffee/tea service before landing after 15-hour flight to Chicago. Crew kept windows dark until 1/2 hour before landing."

Pros: "I like most of everything from this airline, Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "bathrooms should be cleaned more often"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "We really appreciated the nice customer service we received from the check in desk!! We were able to upgrade and get our seats together- thank you! Also Cathay Pacific gave us our boarding passes straight through to our final destination which made it possible for us to narrowly make our flight once we were in Chicago. Very grateful for this."
Cons: "Our airplane had technical problems and our flight left 2 hours late, which made it very tight to make our connection in Chicago. This was very hard. We just wish that the delay hadn't been so long."

Pros: "The flight attendance were polite and helpful. They are very generous in pouring the red wine for the passengers. Food/beverages are fine as compared with other cross Atlantic airlines. The captain was very pleasant during his in-flight announcements; complete and thorough. The bathrooms were quite clean."

Pros: "Most comfortable bed... slept almost 7 hours on the flight. Food, service and everything else was excellent..."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of... They had it all covered."

Pros: "Amazing flight! Continue to serve pleasantly to all passengers"

Pros: "It was a typical economy flight. Very long and nothing spectacular or terrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed extremely frantic. They need to relax. I know it was lot of people to take care of but do things to make it easier. Don't let people bring 2 large bags EACH onto flights. Bring a garbage bag around instead of a tiny 5 inch X 5 inch tray when you are collecting 100s? of people's garbage. When departing a plane, I never have seen so much trash and nonsense all over the floor. Bringing a garbage bag around would definitely eliminate a majority of that, the tray was extremely impractical for such a large amount of passengers."

Pros: "We were booked on "S" class fares, which meant no seat selection until 48 hours before departure. However, we were able to get aisle seats with no problem. The crew was wonderful, service was great, and entertainment exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."

Pros: "It was a packed flight and I had the window seat, but I remained seated the entire time.. The selection of entertainment was awesome.."
Cons: "the long flight.."

Cons: "The food was garbage and almost not edible . I would feel guilty feeding it to my dog. Even the peanuts sucked"

Pros: "I've taken other long-haul flights where it seems the flight attendants were serving food or drinks every couple of hours, leaving little time to sleep peacefully. But the Cathay staff, I think, balanced it well. Over 15 hrs, I was only woken up 2-3x for food. Was nice to be able to sleep without being disturbed too much."
Cons: "Way too cramped in the economy section. I'm a small guy, but even for me it was cramped."

Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"

Pros: "Terrific first class and business club in Hong Kong. Great flight crew. Everything else also excellent. Keep up the excellent work."

Cons: "Food have to be more tasty"

Pros: "Our connecting flight was running late due to weather and Cathay pacific airlines were waiting for us at security to take us to the airplane that was waiting ! Wow ! Amazing service!!! So grateful for their amazing kindness !!!"

Pros: "The service was outstanding, the food actually tasted good, and not "good for airline food," just good. The seats were comfortable; lots of entertainment options and boarding was run super efficiently. I'd fly this airline anytime."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "First and international flight - the seats are cramped, the meals are extremely 'blan' and the entertainment selection was not very good."

Cons: "Needs more leg room"

Pros: "Everything was good I didn't have any complaints about the service or flight time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Same as above"

Cons: "Could be better, say, like with Singapore Airlines.."

Pros: "meal"

Pros: "I was i business class and the crew were very good"
Cons: "nothing as it was not a long flight, only 3 hours"

Pros: "Everything! I never knew that Finnair was such a great airline."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing could have been better."

Pros: "Helsinki is a convenient connection to fly to the U.S. One of Finnair planes was damaged earlier in Chicago and they used AirItaly to operate this flight. I was traveling with a recent wrist fracture and I was lucky I had an empty seat next to me that allowed me to move my arm a lot to avoid swelling."
Cons: "Our boarding was an hour and a half delayed"

Pros: "The crew is excellent. Very friendly, professional, and helpful. Both on board and at the desk inside the airport. They listen to your needs and respond the best they can. Seats are comfortable enough for Economy. Good selection of movies to watch. The flight was on time and arrived even a little earlier than expected."
Cons: "The food was filling, but not particularly tasty. For those seated toward the back, there was no choice. Although maybe there was no choice to begin with. Normally, on international flights, for the first (bigger) meal at least, you are given two choices, such as meat or vegetarian, beef or chicken. The food itself wasn't great. The salad was below average on both flight, from and to Chicago. So was the desert. Drinks are offered once with each meal in very small glasses. Although there is a bottle of water from the start."

Pros: "Environmentally mindful with some packaging"
Cons: "There were no menu options for vegetarians on either meal. Several screens were not working, despite multiple reboot attempts."

Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful"

Cons: "Plane was 1 hour late and missed my flight."

Pros: "Entrees were great and we appreciated receiving two meals. Like the bottle of water, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Seating is tight in coach. Desserts need help. The movie selection was OK but not great."

Pros: "People, service and food were great. Everyone had free blankets, pI'll own and earbuds. Cost was also great."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."

Pros: "Was great on the way to Helsinki and extremely poor on the return trip."
Cons: "Seat pitch was horrible! Almost as bad as United and American. Very uncomfortable!"

Pros: "The experience of crew and polite behaviour."
Cons: "Not knowing clearly what airline or flight to take. Was not listed on my first initial ticket. Also I could not check in online at all."

Pros: "Crew was awesome. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving Helsinki due to broken latch, which made us late getting into Chicago. After landing we waited at least 45 minutes to get to a gate. It took at least 30 minutes to get off the plane and then getting through customs was a nightmare. Arrival board at O'Hare said plane was on time, but listed gate as 0, which of course doesn't exist so our ride home had no idea what was going on or what was taking so long and ended up waiting over three hours for us to get through everything to meet them."

Cons: "They run out of food choices by the time they got to me."

Pros: "The stewardess was really sweet and funny! She was very accomodating even though there was high stress because the flight was late."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late, which made it really hard on a few passengers, myself not included, who had transfers."

Cons: "We had to sit on the runway for a very long time after landing and I missed my connecting flight. It also took a very long time to get a hotel assignment because I was stuck in Chicago overnight. The finnair air agents at ohare were not very understanding or helpful. I was sent from their line to American Airlines and then back again. They were slow. We waited in the line for a long time for someone to come and help us. overall they were not very apologetic regarding the fact that I was stuck there overnight. It took soooo long to get to the hotel. I arrived there well after midnight. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED SO CLOSE TOGETHER. NO LAYOVER TIME IN BETWEEN MEANS MISSED CONNECTIONS! THIS HAPPENED BOTH WAYS ON MY TRIP. VERY ANNOYING"

Pros: "It was interesting that the flight from Helsinki to Chicago served a Indian style dinner comprising of lentils, rice and chickpeas. I liked that too, though I prefer the meditarranean fare. My kids liked the macaroni and meat dinner. The plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been a bit more cordial and smiling. The dessert was only a choclate. Would have liked something better. Entertainment needed more variety. Boarding was a bit of a mess as they did not let families board first and were not very accomodative of families with small children, though I had a 9 year old, but there was a family with two very small children and they were not very helpful to them."

Cons: "Completely destroyed our itenerary"

Pros: "many choices of films to watch was great too! Like that you served Finnish food!"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Entertainment options were fine. Crew was courteous. Boarding was fast. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Economy seats were more cramped than other international economy flights I have been on. My knees were against the seat in front of me the entire 9-hour flight. There were supposed to be 2 options for meal, but by the time I was served there was only one remaining. The meal itself was passing."

Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had a very rude male flight attendant that argued with us when they didn't have a vegetarian meal for my wife even though we checked that box when buying our tickets. My wife ate two bread rolls for dinner before the next meal 7 hours later. Later, when the second meal was served, he muttered a smart assed reply to my wife after he handed her food to her. After that meal service he offered everyone coffee except us."

Pros: "Typical service and level of attention you'd expect in business class. Great food and wine selection. The amenity kit has exactly what's needed and not more."
Cons: "Only 1 hour of Wi-fi included - seems strange for business class."

Cons: "The entertainment kept shutting off, and the crew had to reset it about 5 times. They were very apologetic, and kept trying until finally getting it fixed."

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "We paid for economy comfort and signed up for the 2x2 seats. Instead we received the 2 seats in the middle of 4. we were more than upset, there is no way we would every request the 2 worst seats in that area and given my husband is 6'6' Did not make for a happy experience."

Cons: "Plane too small. Avoiding Airbus jets from now on!"

Cons: "Wasn't given vegetarian option for food and don't eat meat."

Cons: "I don't understand when a reason for flight delay is no aircraft. Wasn't it a scheduled flight? The €8 voucher is only enough to buy one glass of juice."

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. They lean too far back too so that if the person in front of you is reclined all the way, you're quite uncomfortable. I was able to view the TV screen in front of me better than my own because the person in front of me was completely reclined."

Cons: "Left the cabin lights on most of the trip and kept interrupting with announcements to sell duty free and other things when most people just wanted to sleep. Flight from Chicago to Helsinki was much better."

Cons: "No seating available at the gate. People had to sit on the floor or stand"

Cons: "This flight was delayed 5 and a half hours and did not arrive into Chicago until almost midnight."

Pros: "Blueberry juice. And best coffee I ever had on an airplane."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "I was surprised with an amount of drinks and food provided.Everything was delicious, and we were very hungry so imagine our happy faces. The crew was professional in all ways.Flight was smooth and comfortable-applause for the pilots!"

Cons: "did not get to Helsinki in first place; flight from Warsaw to Helsinki canceled by Finnair (# 742) put in another plane, from other provider (LOT) going straight to Chicago; was not ready for it; we arrived at airport 2 hr before time of boarding and were rushed to plane going up in 45 min; very stressful; my daughter cried and we had no time to say good bays to family paid for selected seats - money not returned selected special meal - stayed hungry (8 hr fly) because they were not aware about our special needs; Finnair shold take care of it when canceling flight and putting us with other provider."

Pros: "Excellent service, professional service, good food that I did not have to pay for. Good flight, would take Finnair again."
Cons: "They answered my question professionally. As I disembarked the plane in Chicago I asked whether Finnair had armed guards. I was not detained, and was not questioned. The crew told me Finnair does not have them but I don't think they appreciated the question."

Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and efficient, boarding flowed smoothly."
Cons: "Customers should be able to indicate their food preference before the flight, i.e. chicken, beef, vegetarian, etc., instead of taking pot luck or paying more than $12 for the option of selecting beforehand. In addition, there is a great deal of waste in giving everyone sugar, salt, creamer, etc. I know it's more efficient for the flight attendants, but I hate to see so much waste."

Pros: "never happened"

Pros: "Spacious, on time and smooth"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options and I was unsure where to select a meal preference. This means that I did not eat anything for the duration of the flight....."

Pros: "Plane was nice, new, every seat had an entertainment system. Crew was very nice and did their best to accommodate my needing a gluten free meal. *This was an Iberia plane, not an American Airlines plane."
Cons: "The Iberia web site, and web app were not functioning properly. I want able to save any of my personal information such as phone number or known traveler number. I was unable to select a gluten free meal prior to the flight since the web app and website were not working. I tried calleding Iberia customer support over 10 different times and was never able to speak with a representative. The customer support prior to the flight was non-existent."

Pros: "The dinner tray was actually one of the best I ever had in a plane (except maybe for the bread). Flight was comfortable overall, I was just a little too hot, with no individual air vent."
Cons: "A little too hot, and no WI-FI. Other than that, great flight."

Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."

Pros: "It seems a bit unfair to rate Finnair, when the flight was serviced by Iberia...that being said - everyone seemed to be put out by any request or basic question. The movies were really good and (UNLIKE the flight from Chicago to Madrid, where i was told they didn't do that) the stewardess on the flight home didn't mind giving me a second glass of wine."
Cons: "the people at the boarding desk in O'Hare were rude & indifferent. The flight attendants on way to Spain were non-existant The food was comically awful!!! The man at the check-in desk in Madrid could not have been ruder or less helpful (Hopefully for his wife's sake!) The food on the way home again was unfortunate.....that can NOT possibly be the best food any company can find in Spain. Hell - wed have been better off with a cheese & ham plate with some bread!!"

Pros: "The flight was so-so. Cramped seating with mediocre food."
Cons: "The problem I had was the multiple email updates from Kayak with the wrong departure time. Fortunately, I checked with American directly. Even after the flight departed I was getting emails that I still had four hours left. Doesn't make sense."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled after 5h at the airport. Impossible to be booked before 5days..."

Pros: "The flight was operated by Iberia. The crew was very good, the flight was on time and it was a comfortable flight. It was not a full flight (either way to or from Madrid) and there was plenty of room to spread out and sleep which was nice. The entertainment system was great with many options from TV to movies to games and music. The food was only fair but included a meal and a large snack. I will definitely take this flight again."
Cons: "nothing to dislike about the experience"

Pros: "I cannot say enough about how kind, caring and paitent the flight crew was with not only me but others I saw around me. Kudos!!!"

Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"
