Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendants were very patient and efficient. Flight was very smooth and surprisingly not overcrowded. For the first time, in a long time, when getting off of the plane it was very organized and not everyone rushing and pushing to get off. Everyone followed suit and did row by row, and no one pushing or shoving which is always nice."
Cons: "The only this I would suggest is that on a longer flight you should offer better deals on food/snacks."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Pros: "BATE AND SWITCH. I BUY A TICKET TO DISCOVER IT DOENST ALLOW ME TO CARRY MY ROLLER BAG ON BOARD UNLESS I PAY A $60.00 FEE, YES $60. I GUESS THIS IS HOW TO MAKE A PROFIT EVEN IF YOU MAKE YOUR CUSTOMER FEEL LIKE A SUCKER! THANKS AMERICAN AIRLINE FOR LETTING ME KNOW YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR STOCKHOLDER AND THE CUSTOMER IS JUST A WAY TO MAKE THE STOCKHOLDERS AND EXECUTIVES (WHO GET BIG BONUS') HAPPY. SINCE YOU NOW ACT LIKE SPIRIT AIRLINES MAYBE YOU SHOULD MERGE WITH THEM TOO. I WANT BE TRAVELING AMERICAN AGAIN UNLESS ITS THE ONLY CHOICE I HAVE. IM GLAD TO SHARE MY STORY WITH OTHERS."

Cons: "Painful. Since the airline industry can't seem to get people (morons) to check their bags, why not have people who DO NOT have carry ons seated in the front, and those who refuse to check their bags seated in the back. That way, those of us who can just stand up and walk out can get out the way and those who have to struggle with retrieving their bags don't hold us up ????

Cons: "It took a very long time to drop bags because there were only three people at the Iberia desks."
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: "More spacious than the flight to Madrid. Good was fresher good entertainment system."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard."
Pros: "Me gusta el servicio, la comodidad del idioma.. y la puntualidad de los viajes.."
Cons: "Yo me sentí mal con la displicente atención del auxiliar de vuelo. El no quiso ayudarme a poner mi equipaje de mano en el compartimiento encima de mi asiento. Dijo que si el levantaba esa maleta el podía dañar su espalda.. y el seguro no lo atenderia.. le dije al señor que yo había solicitado asistencia.. pero el dijo que para otra vez, pusiera mi equipaje en carga.. un pasajero vecino de mi asiento al ver la negativa actitud de ese señor.. levantó mi equipaje y me ayudó. Yo soy viajero frecuente de Iberia y se que una mala actitud no hará cambiar mi preferencia."
Pros: "It was a regular flight Seats worked entertainment worked Staff did their jobs without many smiles but they did it"
Cons: "staff was somewhat distracted doing their duty but not attuned to peoples needs I wanted more water Had to ask twice OH I forgot was the answer I got Otherwise all was fine"

Cons: "The stewardess spilled coffee on my leg and didnt apologize. then after bumped me in the head with her elbow and did not apologize."
Pros: "Entertainment content was good and made the long trip more pleasant. I got a seat in the emergency exit and had lots of space for my legs. Alleys are quite narrow although and the crew was bumping into my arm quite often but overall seating experience was good."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. It was difficult to understand the groups that were supposed to board. Overal check in process took too long. I arrived to the airport 3 hours in advance and finally made it to the gate when boarding started. Food can be improved as well. Had the pasta with spinach which consisted in some tortellini with very greasy cheese and way too many peppers. Second meal consisted in a sad croissant with ham and cheese."
Pros: "Spaciousness of plane"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo! The stewardess in business class was very rude. The food could be less starchy."
Cons: "Could not board the plane as it was overbooked!!!!!"
Cons: "The airline put me on standby for my connecting flight without telling me at anypoint until I was at the gate. I lost a day of vacation and instead had to wait in Madrid for 4hrs, fly to a neighboring city, and then take 2hr bus to my final destination."
Pros: "The flight was ok."
Cons: "Ok. I was so rushed from my connection I got sick. My bag was left in Madrid."

Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Business class service, there were no pre flight drinks served. There was no entertainment."
Cons: "They forced us to check our bags at the gate even though we had an international connection to make in London--to continue flying to Chicago. As a result, we had to go through customs and security in London, and would have most definitely missed our connecting flight back home to the States if not for a woman in customs at Heathrow who let us cut to the front of the line. I will never fly Iberia again and will be lodging a formal complaint."
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "good inflight entertainment selection"
Cons: "preregistered for a designated aisle seat that was confirmed. However I was assigned a middle seat in between two big passenger. Flight was late for arrival due to weather, but we were informed of that only after takeoff despite the fact that they knew it hours before departure."
Pros: "It got me hone."
Cons: "Very small seats we were not given any snacks or drinks."
Pros: "Crew were great. On time. Smooth"
Cons: "Check in gave my wife 2 seats on Madrid to Dusseldorf flight plus 1 for myself. On connecting flight from Dusseldorf to San Francisco she only gave a boarding pass to my wife so we had to scramble when we got to Dusseldorf to have AirBerlin resolve the issue."
Cons: "I got fever after I boarded the flight. After the lunch/dinner , probably 30 mins after it I asked for Hot water or some hot tea as I was feeling cold. Both the flight attendants told me the service is closed. If this is your hospitality, ba**s to you from next time."
Cons: "We took the red eye and there were children that would not stop screaming and crying. This was not your usual crying infant. These children were able to speak. The crew did nothing about it and let these children yell and scream as they played games on the provided tv. Most of the people on the flight were displeased by this family that made so much noise."
Cons: "The aircraft has air condition problem and they whole flight was extremely HOT!!!! Cabin crew paid very little attention to this until we were 4 hours into the flight and basically said there is nothing I can do. I call for the head of the cabin crew and she took 2 hours to come talk to me. I had to wait for here to come out from her flight nap in the crew quarters."
Pros: "Nothing. No luggage. Trip ruined and still getting run around in day 3. Poor poor customer service or customer care. Never fly them again."
Pros: "Enternainment selections were ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not helpful, indeed they were dismissive. I asked one for ice and she told me they had no ice. Bullocks."
Pros: "Best transatlantic flight for a long time. More legroom quiet and delays were communicated well"
Cons: "Would have liked another couple rounds of water"
Pros: "flight and crew were excellent"
