UK travelers/non-EU and EEA nationals resident in the UK will not be permitted entry to France for non-essential purposes. Essential travel is still permitted. These restrictions do not apply to UK nationals who are legally resident in France. You will be allowed to re-enter the country, but may need to show proof of residence.
Exemptions exist for spouses and children of French nationals, long-term residents with French residence permits and their spouses and children, long-term residents of EEA Member States, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, the United Kingdom or the Vatican City and their spouses and children on their way home, and healthcare professionals. Airline crew, personnel of diplomatic and consular missions and international organizations with offices in France and their spouses and children, and merchant seamen may also still enter. Mask wearing is obligatory for all travelers above the age of 11.
Travelers will need to complete a ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) form self-certifying they are not suffering from symptoms associated with COVID-19 and have not been in contact with confirmed cases in the preceding fortnight.

Travelers flying to airports in France from such areas will also be required to take a PCR test. They may either provide a negative test result taken less than 72 hours before departure. Whether this test is recommended or obligatory depends on the category your country of departure falls in to:
Category 1 countries: For travelers from Bahrain, Panama, the UAE and the USA. Boarding will be refused if a negative COVID-19 test result is not presented. Those departing the US who have taken a test but do not yet have a result will be able to board with a consular ‘laissez-passer’ on condition they re-take a test on arrival.

Travelers are strongly recommended to take a test in the 72 hours prior to departure but can opt to take a test on arrival instead.
Arrivals from countries not named above will be invited to present negative test results taken 72 hours prior to departure or may opt to take a test on arrival.
Travelers without a negative test result arriving from Category 2 countries and from countries not named above are subject to quarantine if they refuse to take a test upon arrival.
There are special regulations for travelers transiting through France to return to their country of residence. Only direct transit to reach your country of residence is permitted.

Pros: "Some of the crew were amazing and some were grouchy and not very helpful"
Pros: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Cons: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."

I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago.

Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline.

The plane also had Florescent lighting that changed colors every 20 seconds for the first 2 hours of the flight, my wife got nautious. At 11:30pm they served supper, which the food was good but this was supposed to be a red-eye so we were expecting some rest. The lights finally went out at 1200 midnight.

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."
Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available.

Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."
Pros: "The in-flight service was good."
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"
Pros: "Aer Lingus crew are great. Probably some of the nicest people in the world. Lightly loaded so boarding was quick and staff were lenient about cabin baggage."
Cons: "My 757 is among the oldest aircraft in service, and it shows. Noisy and every surface is well worn. Seats are substandard in the industry for a long flight. Granted the flight was lightly filled, so that made it a bit nicer."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "My flight from ORD-DUB arrived late causing us to miss our connecting flight to Madrid. I talked to an agent and they told us we would have to pick up our bags at a different carousel and then go to the ticketing agent for a new flight. 1 ticketing agent+3 hours of waiting = 1 pissed off traveler."
Pros: "nice airline clean"
Cons: "is really nice I will flay with them they are ok"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was great."
Cons: "Layover at Dublin. The flight left 45 minute late and we missed our flight to Madrid. We had to rebook from Dublin to Madrid. And we will be arriving late to Madrid where all our activities will not be valid due to arriving late."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the flight left on-time and arrived on-time too. No issues with the schedule or my bags."
Cons: "The seats are really uncomfortable, they provide you a pillow and a blanket, but with the limited space you can't even use them, there is even less space than on domestic planes. For an overseas flight this is really bad. Also, you cannot sleep, very long time for dinner and announcements."
Pros: "The free movies and the food was good."
Cons: "The seats are too close together."
Pros: "Great crew. Great food. Great movie selection."
Cons: "The seats were bad seats. For a such a long flight, we couldn’t recline!! Not fun."
Pros: "Flight was great! Staff was friendly and attentive, plane was on time as promised! Really a positive experience."
Cons: "The entire crew needs to be a little attentive to their passengers you could visually see when they needed to assist a guest it was a bother to them."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room. Friendly staff. Decent meal. Reminds me of how the airlines used to act."
Pros: "Smooth landing. Entertainment. That's about it."
Cons: "I've flown many overseas trips some first, some premium, some economy. This economy was the worst. I felt like a sardine smashed in a tin can. Also, extra to buy snacks and drinks? Not looking forward to the flight back. Would love to upgrade but site won't let you :( even if it gives you an option to do so"
Cons: "shitty airline shitty service from ...webjet?...who I got ticket through -- said they had my seats assigned. They didn't. totally inexplicable who i was dealing with...aer lingus operated by british airways. Aer lingus couldn't make seat assignmetns they said b/c it was BA. BA wouldn't deal with me. Someone else at aer lingus did deal with seats -- told me to straighten out at airport. Aer lingus at airport no help. Terrible"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. Love all the snack breaks."
Cons: "Too many intercom interruptions. Terrible TV functionality. Poor entertainment selection. Extremely uncomfortable seats. And they lost our luggage for two days."
Pros: "Pleasant, courteous staff. Average room in economy. Less pressure and bustle at Dublin than bigger airports."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Everyone seemed to be pleasant, had no issues with any baggage, we paid for the upgraded meals which were pretty good considering where were at. Entertainment system worked fine."
Cons: "Seats are fairly crammed together so eating from the middle seat was tight, could have picked up our trays quicker also. Was getting sore sitting for 8 hrs but that's common"
Pros: "crew, professional. courteous"
Cons: "very little legroom despite seat bought for 55 dollars; bad quality headphones (bring your own if you want to watch a movie)"
Pros: "You lost the suitcase I needed for the next 2 weeks of my last family vacation in Europe. When I called for an update after 2 days (the promised notification from you was not made) I was told it was found and would be brought by courier to my Airbnb. When I called again, I found out it had arrived in Frankfurt but I'd have to come back to the airport to retrieve it. I had to cancel some plans and inconvenience my family because of your inept handling of my personal property. Other people were in line at the service desk to report their luggage lost. I'm VERY upset. I will avoid Are Lingus and BA in the future. NO LEG ROOM! (Crying, wailing infants the whole 7 hour flight--not your fault, but no sleep for any of us unfortunate passengers)"
Pros: "Timely, no pain"
Cons: "Food, no vegetarian options"
Pros: "The cabin staff were pleasant as we boarded."
Cons: "The food was mediocre at best. No attempt to bring around water or other drinks between food to encourage hydration. When I went back to the galley to seek some water, all 3 attendants were asleep - 2 even had blankets over their heads! It did not seem like they were particularly into providing a pleasant experience for passengers."
Pros: "Food excellent, plane staff pleasant. Plane was late."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. The young man at the,AL desk at Frankfort was tude,and dismissive. It is more than 24 hours later now and they have made no contact."

Pros: "The takeoff, flight, and landing were all very smooth. The staff were nice and courteous. The boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "The video screen for my seat locked up and was unusable."
Cons: "We didn't like the charge to select seats together"
Cons: "Late flight made our connection at Dublin very nerve-racking. We had to almost run to get to our connecting flight."
Pros: "Great boarding experience, good food"
Cons: "Speakers for entertainment were ridiculous, poor ear speakers made it impossible to hear selection. I opted to use my own ear buds and iPad for entertainment. Seating was very poor for an overnight flight I expected more room and at least would have liked to sleep with my head on the tray but with the passenger in front of me leaned back there was barely enough room to get up and use the bathroom"
Pros: "cordial staff shortest flight to our destination(counting hours of flying to Malaga from Chicago)"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Great flight, on time"
Cons: "Ran out of entre before they got to me"
Pros: "Great idea to fill the back of the plane first, smooth loading! Food service was great."
Cons: "Sleep was a huge challenge. Not one to travel often it was s surprise how little room there was when the passenger in the seat in front leaned her seat back. I was unable to sleep by resting my head forward in the drop down tray."
Pros: "The best long flight in years. An amazingly nice and pleasant experience in a deeply irish identity company. Just Perfect"
Pros: "Food was great - enjoyed the shepard's pie."
Cons: "Our flights were changed numerous times."
Pros: "Their accents"
Cons: "Delays, missed connections, their proposed solutions to missed connections, their inability to hold connecting flights just a few minutes to allow passengers on a delayed flight to make their connection."
Cons: "Our luggage arrived in england sopping wet and reeking of beer. The contents are awful. We have tried frebeze and all manner of things and now it reeks of perfume muxed with beer. We have spent our first three days in england trying to find where ti clean sll our clothes and are afraid to pack in the smelly suitcas. Our holiday has lost three precious days trying ti remedy the results from Aer Lingus' actions. Person in front of us had seat all the way reclined into my husbands legs for the whole flight. TV too close to be able to look at any entertainment."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the meals were tasty"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Cons: "Aer Lingus lost my husband's baggage and 3 weeks later it has not been found. We had to buy all new clothes, inc a new suit for our wedding which is what we were traveling for."
Pros: "The food was adequate and movies were available to watch theough out the flight."
Cons: "When our flight was canceled we were refused service repeatedly by both airport and phone support, and forced to stay in a hotel. On the rescheduled flight we were forced to relinquish priority seats. This was the worst airline experience I have ever been a part of. We sat on the tarmac for 5 hours before the flight was canceled and no other options were left. Our second flight to replace that was rescheduled at a different time without notifying us. No service, no offer to recuperate lost time and money, no compensation offered. Flat out terrible service."
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Pros: "Great flight, loved the movies!"
Cons: "Good wasn't good"
Cons: "We asked to take an earlier flight to Louisville and were told that the Chicago crew would not have time to get our bags on board. When we arrived in Louisville, many hours later, our bags did not appear with everyone else's. It seems they had come on the earlier flight that we were not permitted to take. This was one of many issues with Aer Lingus during a trip we started planning last November. I will never fly through the Louisville KY (SDF) airport again nor will I ever use Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "Attentive service, on time flight. Hard to complain...everything worked smoothly."
Cons: "You had to pay for drinks, and the TV menu was limited. Sad that you can complain about this when you're majestically flying through the air so I apologize! All in all an unbelievable value...just warning of the two tiny, tiny drawbacks. Would highly recommend for the value."
Cons: "The flight had to make an emergency landing back in O'Hare due to technical issues with the plane. A part was missing, so the flight was cancelled. Getting a reimbursement has been a nightmare. The crew provided passengers with a hotline number that worked rarely: we were told to call the number after 9 AM the next day - it took until about 1 PM before the signal would stop being busy and another 1 hour on hold before anyone from support would pick up. After someone did answer, the support agent on the line was aggressive and rude. She said she could not help me due to the flight having been booked through Kayak. When asked whether she would be contacting them to determine next steps, since this was an issue between Aer Lingus and the website, she shouted that she would do nothing of the sort and immediately hung up. Overall, this entire experience has been a nightmare - I would not recommend flying through Aer Lingus to anyone. Not due to the flight cancellation, but due to the complete lack of support and utter disinterest in helping customers."
Pros: "Plane was on time. Crew was nice and helpful to some passengers who really needed help. Movies/TV had nice selections. Food was OK. Greeted over the intercom by the pilot and co-pilot along with pertinent information."
Cons: "Aisles too small, cushions on seats thin and not that comfortable with a nine hour flight. Would be nice if arm rests folded all the way up to allow more movement, but seats too close together to allow that to happen."
Pros: "No problem with flight"
Cons: "Disappointed that I was unable to check in on line, having booked flight via justfly,com"
Cons: "The cabin lights were left on too long for a red eye. Cramped quarters - but that is true of every airline now. We did receive a blanket and pilllow, which was nice. Did not have dinner so can’t comment. Croissant with cream cheese prior to landing was OK Nice smooth flight.Nice pleasant crew"
Pros: "Blanks were comfy, staff very friendly and the food was tasty"
Cons: "One overhead speaker was crackling and not sure if it worked quite right, couldn’t hear announcements very well."
Cons: "Waited for over an hour for trams to retrieve us from the aircraft."
Cons: "Don’t approach"
Cons: "Delay , rebooked on fight. Had to wait 8 hours. I needed a wheelchair .. they put Erin a remote location with a rude assistant in charge of transfers for wheel chairs . She had none. Made me walk 15 minutes to find a place to take my meds. She couldn’t care less."
Cons: "We didn’t, have a wheel chare whan we arrived to Dublen we wait near 1 hair till they come"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Delay of more than 1 hr"
Cons: "Seat in row ahead was broken, causing it to recline too far and not correctly return upright"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late in boarding Plane was waasay to cold, even with a blanket i was freezing My TV screen and chair was disgusting My sons pillow had blood stains Flight attendant was rude Not enough movie selection"
Pros: "Pilot was nice"
Cons: "The chaos boarding, unorganized crew, missing our transfer flight and not given options to book differently"
Pros: "Boarding efficient, take off on time, flight smooth, crew professional."
Pros: "Love the 747 upper deck."
Pros: "Long wait between flights"
Cons: "No snack."
Cons: "Lounge needs updated."
Pros: "Nice aircraft and nice flight overall!"
Cons: "I had reserved the 2 back seats of the aircraft--a row of only those 2 seats--so I could sleep against the window and my husband would still have the legroom he needs. Unfortunately those seats on the actual aircraft ended up being in a 3 seat row and getting a window seat and middle seat. Having booked the flight 8+ months prior, we were disappointed that we had less comfortable seats than originally reserved."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The width of the seats in economy are so narrow they don't fit my back. I am not a fat person. 6 feet 170 lbs and fit. No legroom and the tray table is not deep enough to support the food tray. Breakfast after an 8 hour flight consisted of a Kellogg's snack bar in a wrapper. I am used to Southwest Airlines which allows more than one peanut bag so I took two breakfast bars and the stewardess scolded me and said only one and made me return my extra. Not everyone in my roll even took a bar. They treat you like dirt in coach."
Pros: "good movies"
Cons: "Middle seat, very cramped and I'm short"
Cons: "the snack before arrival consisted of a protein bar"
Pros: "New plane, very comfortable seating. The headphones in biz class were awesome, forgot I was on the plane. Overall best American Airlines flight and I do fly them a lot. Also liked the dual screens option."
Cons: "The seat control in the touch pad - not conveniently placed"
Cons: "Nothing that could be controlled just a lot of turbulence. It would be nice for the pilot to reassure passengers"
Pros: "The gate agent"
Cons: "Everything was great about this flight, except that I had a row of seats that would not allow the arm rest to go down. So even though I had 2 empty seats to my left I could not utilize them, which would have made the flight so much better. When asked I was told that the "curve" of the plane would not allow it. This should have been mentioned when I booked and chose those seats."
Pros: "Great service, wonderful food. Very little turbulence and about 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Seat selection process was cumbersome."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late."
Cons: "The flight took off and 30 minutes into the flight to Paris, we were returned to Chicago for an unexplained mechanical problem. After 5 hrs delay, the flight was cancelled. I had to run to another desk for help and was rebooked on an Air France flight but did not receive miles for either BA or AF. Completely unprofessional and chaotic. Miserable to say the least because I missed the wedding that I was flying to, the only reason I flew there!"
Pros: "Food was good. Special meal request was well handled. Not lost in the shuffle."
Cons: "Even paying high price for Economy Plus did NOT give me more space. Leg could be better but width wise seats are tight like coach. Hardly an elbow room. Make Eco+ seats wider to justify higher price !!!"
Cons: "No working entertainment in our entire row. Bad qaulity seats"
Pros: "Nice large plane that wasn't near capacity."
Cons: "Long delay with minimal compensation. Gave us a rebooked connection that we had near zero chance of making."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on the plane. for the first 30 minutes there was no ac available and there was little to no help from the staff. I asked for water to cool myself down and ov waited about ten minutes to get it after hitting my help button multiple times. The flight attendants may have been overwhelmed with the requests as there were many just like me who struggled so they came off very rude. The plane was also not updated at all - not personal entertainment and once again, no ac/air for people to control."
Pros: "Crew where very nice"
Cons: "Lack of room"
Pros: "Grest staff"
Pros: "Saved 5 hours by being changed to a non-stop for the same fee."
Cons: "Working with Iberia to get accessible seating took ten irritating phone calls."
Cons: "The flight was awful! Boarding was unorganized. Once on the plane, space was TIGHT! I have flown with Iberia before and had leg room and TVs behind the chairs. This was not like this. Seats were uncomfortable for an 8 hour flight, smelly, and flimsy. I have never been more uncomfortable. The crew were nice but one was very rude to a passenger snapping at him and all ignored a very drunk man on my flight as much as possible. This man was very disruptive for most of the flight singing, shaking seats, touching other passengers, and walking about the flight. I did not feel safe at all! The staff would tell him to sit down, walk away, and he would be instantly back up. Staff would see this and ignore. I had no idea what to do. I felt unsupported and unsafe. The flight had constant turbalence to go along with it. To the point that they canceled dinner. I wanted to kiss the ground when I got off the flight. This was absolutely miserable. I could not be more disappointed."
Cons: "Boarding started late, did not learn about the gate until 15 min prior to scheduled departure time"
Pros: "Entertainment was decent with new releases"
Cons: "Temperature of the aircraft was too cold, felt like being in the north pole, despite telling the crew, it remained like that the entire flight Delayed flight Crew not very nice"
Pros: "Friendly helping crew"
Cons: "They changed the gate three times and there was one and a half delay in take off"
Cons: "seats in World Traveller are the worst. I've never felt so painful sitting in an airplane seat. The curve of the seat makes it so that one must crane their neck the entire trip. The headrest sticks out a lot, further contributing to this problem. Anyone with half decent posture is going to have a bad time in these seats. I saw the club world seats while exiting the plane and wanted to cry,"
Pros: "I really liked how it was just one flight and no lay overs, the crew was very nice, and the food was good."
Cons: "It was very late and delayed."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice. The food was also nice. I had a gluten free meal and it was enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was old there were no tvs on the seats so the "in flight entertainment" was awful. When you plugged headphones in there was an awful noise that prevented you from hearing anything from the movie/show. Considering this was a transatlantic flight, the plane should have been better. We were also delayed due to maintenance that needed to be done on the flight. Luckily London was my last stop so I was not late for anymore flights but a lot of people on the plane were. I was very disappointed and will be disappointed again if my return flight has the same issues."
Pros: "ORD -> MAD The flight was on time, it boarded on time, it took off only a few minutes late (you can blame that on incredibly crowded ORD). It landed, on time, to an empty terminal. The plane itself was new, very clean, and very well kept. The crew was friendly and spoke a wide variety of languages, including English, French, and of course Spanish. They had no issue with Latin American Spanish or European Spanish accents, which is a concern for some. Overall the flight got me to my destination on time, in one piece, and without breaking the bank."
Cons: "The seats, oh the dreaded seats. In economy class the seats are the most uncomfortable thing you can sit on for 8 hours. If they replaced them with plastic folding lawn chairs, you would have a better time. But that is what you get for flying coach."
Pros: "The staff are good, and that is probably the only good part. This trip is operated by American Arilines"
Cons: "The airplain is too old. It is time to upgrade. Each seat should has its own TV. There should be a charger too on this long flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Selecting seats was impossible because it was a British Airways flight operated by American Airlines - when I selected change seats on BA site it would send me to AA.com and when I tried selecting seats there it sent me to BA.com and on it went circles. I was finally able to select seats at the airport. Flight would have also been better if on demand entertainment was available at each seat in coach like newer planes."
Pros: "Wow! The padding in the seats was gone, the headrests didn't work (supposed to go up and down and side wings, to assist sleeping in place, did not work.) The upholstery was all frayed and there were no headsets to listen to the video/audio unless you brought your own. This on a 4+ hour flight!?! It's a new, spartan world out there. The most difficult part was to see one flight attendant working hard while another sat in her jump seat and read her Bible (commendable, but still....) Overall, I'd say it was a bare-bones flight. The cheese and crackers available for purchase for $8.49 was modest but good; it's hard to screw up cheese and crackers. I won't choose American again to make this particular leg of travel (again, I bought the return from an agency that said it was a British Airways flight, but ended up being operated by American Airlines.)"
Pros: "A nice surprise for the kids. Movies are all free in any class of seat. current blockbusters are in the choices. The children's choices were great as well. A dinner was included again for every class of service."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours which is frustrating. The plane was an older model with small seats, no individual TVs, poor food ( to be truthful, the food was typical airline food.)."
Pros: "it was long time waiting ."
Cons: "That was the tightest seats I have ever been in"
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "more leg room"
Pros: "Good was decent. Didn’t need to schlep big bag of snacks."
Cons: "Turbulence lasted way too long. Probably out of their control but I wondered if they could have changed altitudes."
Pros: "Iberia Premium Tourista is an absolute gem, don't overlook an upgrade from Tourista."
Cons: "The food is just marginal, but I wasn't expecting anything different"
Pros: "Movies, organized boarding"
Cons: "Crew unhelpful arrogant"
Pros: "no stress, the crew was professional"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived 40 min early."
Cons: "The food was the worst on an international flight (out of more than 30)"
Cons: "Maybe include vegan options for food?"
Pros: "The business class seat was extremely comfortable."
Cons: "The touch-screen was very difficult to navigate. It didn't respond very well when touched."
Pros: "The crew members were all very kind!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, the wifi was not working the entire 8-hour flight."
Cons: "One of the shows I started watching on had one episode. Handmade tail?"
Cons: "crew... food was awful..."
Pros: "Crew - all professional and helpful. We left on time/arrived early - no mishaps. Movie selection - excellent, made the time go faster for first flight. Very comfortable the first flight. Pleasant experience."
Cons: "Food was not so great. Too much fat on the chicken. The salad smelled off/bad and didn't look appertizing. the beverages too smaller cup/quantity given (hot tea)."
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent entertainment options."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and not enough leg room."
Cons: "I was Given different seat at boarding into less comfortable place - no explanation."
Pros: "Philadelphia to London"
Cons: "I requested a vegan meal weeks prior and the only meal without meat had a lot of dairy in it. Not enough water was offered as well. The flight was delayed boarding. The leg room is pitiful on the flight."
Cons: "Rarely served drinks, 1h 30 min delayed flight, therefore missed connecting flight, mo assistance at all from crew regarding alternative connections, I will never fly with Iberia again"
Cons: "Half way through the flight my screen stopped working"
Pros: "Food was good, comfortable, nice happy workers, etc."
Cons: "FOOD WAS POOR."
Cons: "For the first time ever an airline lost my luggage. I fly several times a year and thus was my firat time flying Iberia. What a headache and inconvenience."
Pros: "The entertainment system with movies was great, with plenty of choices and good sound. The crew was very good. Legroom on the seats was good. They kept the temperature in the plane just right. We could board first because we had a 5-year-old child."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour leaving Chicago, and arrived an hour late in Madrid. The screen was not updated in Chicago to let us know what was going on. It's a mass of people at the gate, with very little systematic lining up. One luggage piece did not come out on the carousel in Madrid. We had to wait 1.5 hr at the airport to confirm that they would send it to our Madrid hotel. Hopefully it will come. The food was mediocre. Pasta for dinner with little to no meat. Not even fruit. They are clearly saving money on the food."
Pros: "Our flight to Bologna via Madrid on Iberia Airlines was wonderful from take off to landing! Friendly, courteous staff. Good food and entertainment."
Pros: "Great crew, good dinner but below Average breakfast"
Pros: "My flight went smooth and on time. I think we were early. The service is impeccable. Most in-flight meals are pretty crummy if you get one at all. The flight I took wasn't packed somthere was plenty of room. Even if it was there was still a fair amount of space. The entertainment was way better than the ole " everyone get to watch the same thing. Wi-Fi, new releases, even some classic 80's. if you get bored on this flight you really don't deserve to fly internationally."
Cons: "I"lol have to fly them again and find some fault. They worked on my flight and my Mother flew with Iberia and had the same good impression."
Pros: "I am of average height -6 feet- and my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Not comfortable but not too bad either."
Cons: "Boarding was extremely chaotic."
Pros: "The codeshare system with American is so far from seamless! The messed up the seat assignment that I paid for and tried to make me feel like it was my fault! It was a huge hassle to change."
Cons: "Take off was delayed for six hours and Iberia's representative in Madrid told me me missing my train to Valencia is not their problem and Iberia will not reimburse me for the train nor the Iberia flight I had to take to get to Valencia. I've been an Iberia's customer for many years. Horrible customer service and poor airline service. Shame"
Cons: "There was very little leg room - far less than a standard flight. Granted, I'm tall but be warned if you are flying British Airlines and it really is Iberia"
Pros: "Movies were good, seats were OK"
Cons: "Paying $85 for a 2nd bag"
Pros: "movie and tv show selection was great. Helped bide the time"
Cons: "A little cramped for my legs."
Pros: "On time, no hassles. The flight went well."
Cons: "Didn't have any non meat food available on Good Friday. Apparently, the airline ran out."
Cons: "Left late, rude crew, very uncomfortable experience"
Pros: "Alcohol allowed for free. Friendly people"
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: "The in flight entertainment and personal touch screen were great. The captain seemed to do well with abating most turbulence."
Cons: "The cabin crew weren't all that friendly and were super stingy about giving out water during the flight. The legroom was very limited compared to my last trans-Atlantic flight."
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours late"
Cons: "I have to say with all sincerity that my pre travel experience was horrible. Two day before my flight I got an email saying my flight had changed. Over the next 2 days I spend 7 hours on the phone with Vamaya, Iberia and Finnair and no one could seem to help me. The story always changed and I was given crazy false information. I was even told my flight was changed to 8pm on departure date when it actually was leaving at 4:40 pm. I am glad I got to the airport early. I had to to deal with all my problems. In 30 years of travel I have never had an experience so frustration. I would love to speak to someone at Kayak."
Pros: "No delayed flights"
Cons: "The fight from Chicago to London was a nightmare."
Cons: "This was American Airlines, not Iberia. Flight was supposed to leave at 9:45 pm but was delayed to 10:30 pm. At around 10:45 the flight was delayed again. At around 11 we were told that our pilots were too tired to fly and two other pilots might fly us but we wouldn't know untill 12:30 am. At 12:45 am we were told the back up pilots refused the trip. American Airlines has no back up plan for this apparently and the flight was cancelled till 9:30 am the next day. It was 2:00 am before I received a hotel voucher. Overall terrible experience."
Pros: "All airplane attendants were very helpful and always on the call."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Spain bases crew were just not very friendly! They need to smile mire and be more"
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly in this Iberia company"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "People at the airport were yelling and rude. They did not know hope to direct people to their connections and customs."

Pros: "Timing, personnel and plain"
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "Hot on the plane unbearably hot"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats hard and uncomfortable. Dinner was terrible. Breakfast ok. Staff somewhat rude"
