Pros: "I never usually like plane food but liked Turkish Airline meals on all flights I’ve been on so far"
Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"

Pros: "The plane was too hot"
Cons: "Plane too hot"

Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"

Cons: "Bording the plane has no order passengers seated in the front border before the rear. I was in 32a to he worst seat on the plane"

Pros: "I loved the food and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have always chosen Turkish airlines."

Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."
Cons: "Why not keep us informed why there are delays before take off. Headphones that worked well without having to fiddle with the connection would be good"

Cons: "Sometime, it gets a bit too cold."

Pros: "the seats were more roomier than the flight to istanbul."
Cons: "One of the other passengers was being difficult and irritating on the flight."

Pros: "Easy communication and promptness"

Pros: "The staff were very welcoming and the seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was a little delayed"

Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."

Cons: "Have yet to arrive"

Pros: "Only the stewardesses very helpful and professional"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I book flights and they toke money and last minute when i went to the airport is not existing at all"

Cons: "Movies varaiety"

Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work"

Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Turkey as flight was delayed. It was my worst flight experience because nobody wanted to help me. It took an hour of being ignored by various TA staff to eventually get my boarding pass to the next available flight to London. I nearly missed that one as well because of it. The staff in Turkey was rude and unhelpful and most didn’t understand English properly. There were a number of others having the same issues, it was an awful experience."

Cons: "The boarding was a little more chaotic, but the host airport has a major influence on that process."

Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"

Pros: "Nothing am still didn’t fly because of Turkish Airlines in LA really now I have the worst time in my life because the stuff working they are not have heart and no patient only patient for money fees late really I’ll never leave my problems done I can’t believe now sir you texted me after long time to want what’s wrong with me by the way I recorded everything all the stuff and but u will see as soon I reported everything really if you have heart or just thinking after you know my story u will understand me I reported everything with agents and I was trying many many times to come one help me from turkey airline nobody care really you will see sir I’ll post all record to Facebook and YouTube and Instagram Twitter and also I have mybrother his actor and he do show in t.v Chanel and everyone in Egypt loves him so I’ll add this channel t.v like everyone they will see this sir not sir not ok what happens to me you still don’t know why’s going on but now am getting worse day by day nobody with me now sir I sitting with wheelchairs because my back it’s heart me can’t even walk and I lost 2 bags each bag have stuff cost more than 15000$ because it was 2 iPhone X and 2 HTC Vive And some clothes all brand new and play station sir I have all the documents to approve and I reported too anther bag almost 22000$ I have 4000$ cash and more stuff very expensive and the important things my paper work like very important because am CEO for Amircan OSHA Trasports and my tickets price and I paid another fees almost 200 $ don’t sir thinking I need this money sir money now doesn’t working with me when I back my family with wheelchairs really am never had this in my life and the first time I have Turkshairline Sir please be patient and listen to my story maybe u will feel me"

Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"

Pros: "Everything except delay"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Seat comfort"

Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."

Cons: "Seat was cramped. Blanket was inferior."

Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("

Cons: "None of the flights arrived on schedule. That caused other problems. Overall the trip was terrible. Not sure if I will fly lufthansa again nor recommen."

Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"

Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."

Pros: "They held the gate for us as we got there about 14 minutes before departure."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."

Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"

Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"

Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Had to get a replacement plane when the first one had issues."

Pros: "Courteous and professional."

Pros: "On time and smooth"

Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."

Cons: "the monitor at my seat did not work and I could not watch any movie. Everything else was fine."

Cons: "Filght cancelled"

Pros: "Efficiency, courtesy, professionalism."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "They put us in a hotel."
Cons: "I lost my trip to Venice and almost didn't make my cruise ship. Lost $300 non refundable room deposit. Nothing more than an "I'm sorry." from Lufthansa. I'll never fly them again."

Pros: "no complaints, everything went well."

Pros: "Seating, Staff,"

Cons: "Would have liked smoother boarding and more live TV choices"

Pros: "New plane with very friendly and helpful attendants. Extensive entertainment system with usb charging ports."
Cons: "Food was mediochre, but what can you expect?"

Cons: "Boarding system was chaotic. Not enough space for all people, so many had to stand near the boarding area, which meant those who were called to board had to push through many people. The chaos meant that is added stress to personnel trying to board people in a calm and effective manner and had to shout loud to get the right people to board at the right time. Just an overall unpleasant experience. I was glad when I finally got on the plane"

Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly- no delays."
Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "everyone was quite friendly and so helpful."

Cons: "Terrible airline, they charge for everything, but don’t give the client good service. I was yelled by a worker because I was having difficulties scanning my bag at the self-scanning-and-uploading-your-luggage that you pay $100 dollars extra Per bag. I don’t like this airline."

Pros: "Great service. Very comfortable seat"

Pros: "Excellent and professional crew members"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was smooth, most enjoyable"

Cons: "Could not have been better"

Cons: "The food offering"

Pros: "The crew was amazing but delays upto 2 hrs"
Cons: "Nothing as not in control"

Pros: "Everything!!! Excellent service"

Cons: "I don’t like how the food on premium economy is packed in a cubic box that is really messy to eat from which the small plastic cutlery. Food quality is good, but feels like being an animal being fed from a bucket."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast were terrible, especially for a long transatlantic flight. Attendants were curt. Movie selection was subpar compared to other airlines on similar flights I’ve taken."

Pros: "Transfer time is not sufficient due to customs in Sweden customs inspection takes too long for only one staff."

Cons: "Got asked to leave my seat in row 3 for one further back because I couldnt pull up my ticket mid flight to show it was my seat. Their system had me in another row so I missed out on the extra service offered to that row."

Pros: "The crew was great and the economy seating was roomier than expected."
Cons: "Long line just to drop bag off since I had already used the kiosk to check in, then 2 1/2 hour flight delay, charged for wine which should be complimentary on international flights."

Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing was complimentary"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Counter selling me an upgrade that was more expensive than I prefer. I.e., buyers remorse"

Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "This has nothing directly with SAS, but since I experienced it during my flight there, they are responsible of it. I was waiting for the flight at the OSLO airport waiting for the flight to LONDON. I had ample time to work on my computer. In the big room by the gate there was only one spot where I found three electrical sockets hanging from a pillar or post. To my dismay none worked. My plug would fall off from each. To document, I took the pictures of the useless sockets... I complained to the lady at the boarding desk (she left before the SAS staff moved in), she did not even care... This experience frustrated me and turned an otherwise pleasant trip into a bitter one. Please install some working sockets in your waiting room! Flight SK 809 Confirmation: LN9M6O Departure: Oslo & other airports (OSL) Arrival: Heathrow (LHR) Time: Sat Dec 2 2017 3:05 pm CET - Sat Dec 2 2017 4:25 pm GMT Peace, Edip Yuksel +1 520 481 1919"

Pros: "This is obviously a very well-run airline. Boarding was efficient, the crew were warm and professional, and the overall feel of the aircraft was very Scandinavian-cool. I was most impressed with the meal service. We were served twice on our 9 hour flight, and both meals were hot, healthy, and the best I’ve had during a flight. The passenger in front of us was having a hard time with her sinuses, and the flight attendant (whose name I wish we had gotten) was very attentive and concerned for the comfort and well-being of the passenger. She insisted on doing anything she could to alleviate the woman’s difficulty. It is clear that the crew care about the passengers’ experience."
Cons: "We were unable to sleep at all during our overnight flight and landed pretty exhausted. Our seats were comfortable (complete with a moldable headrest to keep your head from bobbing around) but we felt too upright to fall asleep. The passenger in front of us reclined, but we were concerned about reclining into the already tight space of the passenger behind us. So we weren’t able to sleep, despite trying to get comfortable/somewhat horizontal. It seemed to be a mixed bag of asleep and awake passengers on the flight, so some people were unaffected by this issue."

Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full and everyone seemed to have at least two cases. This caused lots of jostling for space in the lockers"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding was shambolic and the 737 is not as nice as the new A320 in terms of comfort or amenity. Boarding was all over the place - and the gate agents clearly need extra people around for a full flight. One person for 170 ppl didn't feel right."

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Didn’t have veggies good on board"

Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."

Pros: "Crew were excellent, had a row to myself, luggage turned up quickly"
Cons: "No landing cards given!"

Pros: "Nice flight, comfortable seating, blankets/pillows/headphones were provided, and food was good."

Pros: "This wasn't a very long flight and I didn't eat or drink anything so there isn't really that much to say. But I can say that nothing was a problem at all"
Cons: "There were no problems"

Cons: "Unable to select seat/baggage until 22 hours before flight because not booked through SAS. Thought bagged was checked in online and had to pay More than the cost of the flight. Flight was delayed due to mechanical problem. Cabin very warm throughout flight."

Pros: "Landing was very smooth"
Cons: "No staff at the gate until fifteen minutes after start of boarding. Flight was delayed, but gate staff were not forthcoming with details."

Cons: "This flight did not occur due to delays."

Pros: "boarding is different and they were talking over pa announcements at heathrow so you could not hear what to do. you go through one ticket agent to the down stairs to another ticket agent. everyone knowing what to expect crowded around the second ticket agent and there because of that forget about boarding by row or zone you couldn't get throught the crowd. plus the second ticket agent was right next to the downstairs escalator so people coming late got on before us."

Pros: "The food was very good surprisingly"
Cons: "Again the seats are too tight and they should not be allowed to recline"

Cons: "Flight was late and they left us completely hanging at the Stockholm airport with no agents anywhere to be found and no instructions on what to do about the missed connection."

Cons: "Out of all the staff on board they did not give me and a few others those blue customs form, so we made a huge line and when we got to the agent he told us we had to go all the way around fill one out and then come back. The attendants new that those were necessary why so many yet not one made sure we got them lousy service. I wish we got a crew that wasnt so insecure and cared more about providing a good service instead of caring so much over their appearance. I rather have good efficient staff what they look like doesnt matter to me."

Pros: "Checked in easily with the line moving quickly. Boarding was efficient for a full flight. Left on time and arrived early. Luggage beat me to the carousel. Please give Air Canada lessons!"

Pros: "Did not use their services much but the stewards seemed nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no entertainment, not many food options for people with certain dietary requirements."

Cons: "For an international flight, only the first non-alcoholic drink is included for free. Let's say, if you want 2 orange juices, you have to pay for the second. Alcohol, of course, is not free under their system. Snacks? Forget about it."

Pros: "Everything was great! At check-in I upgraded to SAS plus. Will choose that again.comfortable, crew was so nice and friendly. Food was amazing. Made my 10 hour flight great. ."

Cons: "Crew unfriendly"

Pros: "Not enough space to store items."

Pros: "The automated kiosks made it ridiculously easy. Flying out of LAX can be a pain, but that went by so smoothly. I'm cheap and have become accustomed to Spirit airlines. So when I received free (decent) meals a complimentary bottle of water and a plethora of inflight entertainment."

Pros: "Comfy and good movies!"

Pros: "Everything. The service was great, plane was comfortable and the ride was easy. I will try to only fly SAS from now on"

Cons: "Not even one bag was included!! And to add a bag is extremely expensive!!! Paid five hundred dkk for one bag!!! Terrible service as well!!!"

Pros: "Easy embarkation, helpful staff."
Cons: "Shock to discover that suitcases were not included in price of tickets purchased online. We had to pay the equivalent of $100 (australian) per case. My seat was extremely u comfortable as the cusihion was misshapen. The male passengers seated behind us were drinking alcohol and became loud and garrulous, making the trip most uncomfortable and unpleasant."

Cons: "8 years ago on similar flight from Lax to got, we had to retrieve checked bags in Sto, and then go through security. It was not clear at all on this trip if it was the same. SK agent at lax seemed unsure, Arlanda customer service agents at baggage in Arlanda also seemed unsure. We then learned from another airport worker at baggage they would go all the way through. It is very important to know since turn around time is very short, and I almost missed flight 8 years ago, and bags did miss it last time. Tks"

Pros: "Flight was Ok"
Cons: "Left till last to board flight. Case taken from me. Asked continually when I wld be taken as I am 83 and recovering from major operation. Told 45 minutes before flight but was taken 10 minutes ahead. Rush has left me very upset."

Cons: "My suitcase was never put on my flight from LAX - ARN, despite checking in 24 hours early and arriving at baggage drop 2.5 hours before my flight. I still have not received my suitcase in Helsinki, and they can't seem to locate it. I am on vacation in Finland and have no clothes, medicine, or toiletries and everyone at SAS and baggage claim have been very unhelpful."

Cons: "I asked for water and was given half a cup, when I requested they fill the cup they said if I wanted more I had to buy it. In addition, when we left the plane everyone pushed their way off instead of following the order of the rows."

Cons: "Disorganization and unpreparedness."

Pros: "Flight was fine, cr"

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

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I'm still at Heathrow 12 hours later. I never made it to Oslo."

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Food trays left for 45 mins. This was premium economy Check in took forever even though I checked in 3 hours before departure. Didn't seem to be any staff near self serve check in screens to advise passengers."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Simply everything"

Pros: "Love the A380 it’s smoothness quietness and spaciousness. The experienced mature crew were excellent."
Cons: "Food quality and selection. I"

Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"

Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Also even when you buy a business class ticket British Airways makes you pay to reserve a seat in advance if you don’t have status with them. That feels over the top for a premium customer."

Pros: "The crew was so incredible, the safety video was funny, the food was DELICIOUS, the accommodations were above and beyond. Comfortable, great movies, relaxing. First international flight and now I’ll always use British Air"
Cons: "Nothing. This has been the best flight experience I’ve ever had."

Pros: "No complaints at all"

Pros: "Good entertainment."

Cons: "They did not give the gat no till the very end and the s cueing check was horrible when carrying a baby"

Pros: "Arrival into Heathrow was unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Wheelchair request was ignored"

Pros: "This was the right size airplane for the long trip very comfortable."

Cons: "They lost our bags. Many of us on board. And they didn’t give us tracking numbers to follow-up. Argh"

Pros: "wonderful crew, good enough food, wide entertainment, seats as good as can be expected, great plane, great flight, great crew, on time and safe and arrived in good spitrits"
Cons: "as always, rather crowded, seats rather tight,"

Pros: "The food, the staff and the free movie on the airplane."
Cons: "My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :). Anne-Laure"

Pros: "I like that we didn't crash"
Cons: "They lost my and 5 other persons luggage! British Airways sucks!"

Cons: "Cold coffee."

Pros: "Only one layover in London"
Cons: "Emirates, Etihad flights I thought were a bit newer and better in terms of comfort and entertainment with more charging ports etc"

Pros: "Crew were good , food was ok."
Cons: "Flight delayed again so both flights to USA and return were delayed... not a great experience . Entertainment took a cou0le of hours to sort, they had to keep resetting it"

Pros: "Courteous, helpful and on time. Good price as well."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The food was terrible."

Cons: "Arrived a day late and fly on an old plane"

Cons: "Fresh food"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The screen was pretty big but quality pretty bad. Looked like 80s CRT. Also bad selection. Luckily it was a red eye flight."

Pros: "Crew and staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My sear was broken and couldn't recline on a 10 hour trip. They tried to fix it but couldn't.."

Pros: "The crew; very accommodating and polite."
Cons: "Nothing, really."

Pros: "I did not use the entertainment. The crew was refreshingly professonial, helpful, and cheerful [in a British way]."
Cons: "I'm tall and the budget seat was 'tight'. But it was to be expecdted."

Pros: "Went by quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "More music choices would have been nice."

Cons: "After taking off in San Francisco flight got re-routed to Minneapolis because of a sick passenger on board. Caused me to miss my connection in London and the subsequent flight I was put on because of the delay. Spent 10 hours overnihht at Heathrow in London because British Airways wasn't giving out hotel vouchers just £15 in meal vouchers. Disappointing."

Pros: "We nisssed it due to British airways ineptitudeeverythubg"

Pros: "Storage bins next to seat in world traveller plus"
Cons: "Lack of seinking water and no toilet in the world traveller plus cabin - curtains divided off the area blocking access to any toilets!"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "More legroom would have been nice"

Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food wasn't great."

Pros: "All great"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "The entertainment selection and the friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats on the first flight were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room, the aisles were incredibly narrow, and the seats were so close together that my neighbor and I bumped arms throughout the flight, and neither of us are large people. That was our first flight on BA and unfortunately it will probably be our last."

Cons: "Seat too small. No free wifi in the XXI century? !!!"

Cons: "Could not do online checkin due to some sort of problem with their booking system, and as a result couldn't choose our seats on the long haul flight."

Pros: "Pleasant check in process. Long layover tags put on our checked bags On time"

Cons: "My bike was checked luggage and was late coming from London. It made me miss my alitali flight and had to spend the night in room."

Cons: "Wish water had been available For free London to Framkfurt"

Pros: "Everything no complaints"
Cons: "No copmplaints"

Pros: "This flight was for my mother. The wheelchair service was very helpful. The crew were very nice. The food was great. Will fly with BA again."

Cons: "On time and good staff"

Pros: "Pleasant, efficient and knowledgable staff."
Cons: "BA staff at SFO lounge have declared UDI and do not allow Gold Card holders into 1st class lounge"

Pros: "First time I enjoy flying , everything was very good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Spent $2000 on a flight SFO to London / Toulouse, expected a better seat and experience. Plane was old, seats uncomfortable, food horrible. No snacks available in between two horrible meals."

Cons: "When you book BA and end up with Iberia, that’s definitely not what you want..."

Cons: "My checked bag did not make it to London, and it’s really affected my short stay which requires a lot of traveling around England."

Cons: "This flight was cancelled"

Pros: "The aircraft comfort"
Cons: "Do the checking before not 15 min before the departure"

Cons: "Delayed by an hour due to inbound delay, causing a knock-on delay with plane maintenance. While fairly comfortably seated and offered water, this still was somewhat unpleasant especially after a long-haul from Havana"

Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."

Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "There was no water in business class toilets. The staff are not polite."

Pros: "It was my first flight with Iberia - I was very pleased with the entire experience."

Cons: "I was not able to check in online"

Pros: "The screens on a dozen seats just failed a few hours in - engineering issue. And breakfast was a cold pretzel. Food gets let’s generous on BA all the time. The crew were lovely."
Cons: "A 2330 Flight ran significantly late with a passenger delay and then de-icing. The repeated assurances of “a 10 minute or so delay” were obviously not correct. Takeoff close to 0100 was followed by drinks AND then food - my vote would be neither. Please oh please just let us sleep."

Pros: "Madrid's airport is comfortable and modern."
Cons: "Unless you paid you do not even get a seat assigned until you get to the airport. No food or even drink unless you pay."

Pros: "Excellent service"

Cons: "Seating and not so friendly"

Pros: "Heathrow Airport has a lot of stores to keep you occupied"
Cons: "Late notice of where our gate was located. By the time we got the news, we went to our gate and the people were already boarding"

Pros: "I like the staff and the generous host of them"
Cons: "The price was not matching the benefits of the ticket because it was without check in bag (luggage) and every single thing you have to pay The type of aircraft there are using its too small business class is very poor nothing to compare with other company."

Pros: "Crew was nice and I had a great flight with Iberia on my flight from Chicago to Madrid"
Cons: "I am 6 feet 180 pounds and I had absolutely no legroom was completely stuck in my seat can’t believe that a tourist class seat is this small with no legroom"

Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Boarding process and pitiful legroom space . Iberia clearly loves showing the privileged few who have paid top dollars to be at the front , that we must be made to wait and struggle to get to our seats .Then, we have to squeeze into a tiny , pitiful space of a seat .....Even Ryanair does better !"

Pros: "seat is comfort"

Pros: "Flight was safe, aircraft was clean and luckily with enough room under the seat to store carry on bag"
Cons: "The fact that all the passengers boarding in "group 3" were forced to check in their carry-on bags if they did not fit under the seat; and retrieve those at the baggage claim area (not right after exiting the airplane) In my case I was able to store my carryon under the seat in front of me after pleading to the crew and gate members to let me try because of my connecting flights. There is no complimentary food service, even water is charged."

Cons: "I stopped at the Iberia check-in at Barajas in Madrid. They sent me to BA check-in, where I waited 45 minutes to find out that I should be at Iberia check-in. Then, Iberia check-in had to send me to last minute clerk or I would have missed my flight. Last minute check-in ended up being the same place and same clerk I began with."

Cons: "A porter checked our bags at the gate without asking us whether we were traveling beyond London, so the bags were never transferred to the transatlantic flight nor did they arrive in SF. It wasn't necessary to check them because there was plenty of room in the overhead bins when we got on the flight. We immediately asked a flight attendant to help when I realized they might not go through and he said he spoke to someone who caught and tagged the bags to go through, but it still didn't happen. It would have been easier if he had just brought them to us on the plane. Another women's bag was taken with all her baby supplies and bottles in it for a 16-hour travel day. Very frustrating for all of us."

Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"

Pros: "short flight, on time"
Cons: "indifferent crew"

Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "They didn't even give out water on the flight. Not to happy with the service"

Cons: "There was no complimentary water or beverages"

Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Check in was terrible, did no allow online and on the desk a lot of misinformation which sent me to different desks for check in. Personnel Needs training!!l"

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft was really hot, I was sweating in my seat... I did not receive any complementary drinks or snacks."

Pros: "Movies, no delays"
Cons: "Luggage was not documented correctly to my final destination by Iberia"

Pros: "new plane"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Very limited room to move. Rather impersonal"

Pros: "Comfortable flights & on time"
Cons: "Service, flight crew seemed to busy chatting instead of serving."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks"

Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable seats"

Cons: "Too little time to connect with another flight at Heathrow. Missed my connecting flight. Why is there an additional security checkpoint at Heathrow when you've already been thru security at another airport? Poor design for international arrivals."

Pros: "The ease at putting my luggage in.."
Cons: "The prices of the food and drinks!! Ripped off!!"

Pros: "Short 2 hour hop to Heathrow, adequate seating, nothing challenging about this flight. Barcelona airport is very user friendly, open and expansive. Service was good on the flight."
Cons: "Landed at heathrow, which is a sprawling airport and plenty of time required for the endless walking, bussing, and subway connections between terminals and gates. But efficient."

Pros: "Everything was delightful, definitely my best ever flight!"

Pros: "We were overall very pleased with everything about, thank you!"

Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kept us waiting for five hours"

Cons: "Late departure."

Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."

Cons: "The seat did not recline, a bit ridiculous for a plane that size"

Cons: "The fight from Chicago to London was a nightmare."

Pros: "Loved the gluten free meal option."

Pros: "Spaciousness of aircraft, comfort of aircraft (vibration, noise)"

Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. although the flight is short, a complimentary snack and drink would have been nice. instead, you had to pay for anything you wanted. prices on top of that, were exaggerated. very disappointing."

Pros: "The flight from Raleigh to Heathrow London was LONG, so I especially enjoyed the wine being included without extra cost! Wine helped me to relax, read, & survive the long sleepless night!"
