Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding was archaic, seat pitch in for economy was tighter than I am accustomed, Could not purchase foo or drink because cash was not accepted & my credit cards were denied for offline purchase. No snacks or drink machines in boarding waiting area. Crew looked uninterested"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick. Got to LA within 40 minutes."
Cons: "They could've provided some snacks."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Hectic boarding; airplane seemed very old"
Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"
Pros: "Polite and funny crew"
Cons: "Snacks and drinks for money"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, courteous and very helpful. On time arrival despite a late departure."
Cons: "As a new user of the app I expected information to flow more fluidly. Gate changes were not communicated through the app unlike several other airline apps I use. My biggest complaint, if you will, is the requirements to pay for anything one wants on the plane. A soda, water, bag of crisps/chips, all for purchase. For the cost of the airline ticket, even our "no checked bag" ticket, you could at least afford to give passengers a can of soft drink or a water and inexpensive bag of pretzels or crisps. Seat was basically comfortable, not great but comfortable. Departed late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Always late always charge for water that’s sad"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED IN THE LAST MINUTE, I WAS STRANDED IN LONDON AND HAD NO COMPENSATION"
Pros: "Crew in board was great"
Cons: "Representative at gate was rude reminding me I was late when we had to wait on bus for others."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were extremely sweet!"
Cons: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "no dairy free food options"
Pros: "The crew was great! Very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment was great on this flight! Other than that, it is kind of hard to find positives."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 minutes for whatever reason and then we were trapped in the air for 11 hours in tiny seats. The seat wasn't very comfortable and I didn't have much room to sit and for my legs. I had a stupid box under the seat in front of me with airplane stuff in it I guess, so that took up some room under the seat in front of me. I had my legs stretched in the aisle most of the flight. The food wasn't great, but what airline food is good? I was really expecting this aircraft to be like the Dream Liner, but overall it was just a big tin can in the sky."
Pros: "The plane was new and everything was up to par."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like other than flying in coach!"
Pros: "Regardless of many flights, this was my first experience with BA on transatlantic flights. And I was pleasantly surprised. Very well mannered crew, politeness, help, all... Food was great as well. Overall great first impression and definitely will fly again with BA."
Cons: "In general, it was ok, can't complain."
Pros: "Across to entertainment helped pass the time"
Cons: "On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible"
Pros: "Wasted nearly 3000$ Worst custmober service never buying ticket throggg you or just fly again They wanted a doctors note I sent it so many phone calls so much money spent on them ended up stuck in London sick without a ticket to return had to purchase a new ticket pay for hotel transport everything"
Pros: "The food and the boarding crw comfortable"
Cons: "Would have liked the option of internet - even for fee on the 12 HR flight from London to La. otherwise great"
Pros: "We enjoyed the entertainment on the flight. The crew was great too!"
Cons: "We were right in front of the restroom, closest to the back wall. We kept hearing the toilets flush and had to deal with all the people in line for the restrooms. It just felt a little crowded back there. Boarding wasn't ideal either. We were delayed 3 hours and couldn't get a confident update until we actually boarded. The only thing near the gate was a Starbucks that took cash only. That's more of a problem with the airport though. Overall, for an 11 hour flight, it was quite enjoyable."
Pros: "The food was good and the leg room was very good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "On both flight s going to LAX to London and London to LAX we were sitting in the back of the plan with all the families with noisy kids. on the flight to London I had two twins in one seat it was difficult for the mother and the children were all over the place. with a tantrum at the end of the flight because of having to have the seat belt on. On the flight home we were in the last row and all kinds of crying kids. If I ever fly again on British Air I want a seat further forward but if is hard to pre book your seat. We are in our 70's and would like a quieter area."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system! Food was good too!"
Cons: "Flight crew was snotty and condescending - put off by doing their job. We didn't ask for anything - they are just rude. Lost bag - 8 days later - still missing!!"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, drinks, service."
Pros: "Good service. Very gracious that the plane waited for us arriving late from Rome."
Cons: "Lost all our luggage"
Cons: "Departure time was 4:10 pm, and they finished boarding at 4:45 pm. Then we had to sit in the plane on the tarmac for another 2 hours, while the captain kept coming up with the weirdest excuses about why we are delayed. First they had to do a manual passenger head count, because the numbers didn't add. After an hour, he says they are finally done counting and are waiting for the truck to push the plane on to the runway. He says that since this is a A380, it needs a bigger truck that is in short supply at Heathrow!! He came on the intercom few more times in the next hour with more excuses about why we are delayed, but by then I was too mad to remember what the hell he was saying."
Pros: "I booked a window seat and the booking was dropped, but there was a special to upgrade to economy plus and things worked out just fine. Food was good, and seat comfortable in economy plus"
Cons: "they messed up the booking The added compartment next to the window did not open and was a waste of space."
Pros: "Heathrow Terminal; Check in easy. Staff knowledgable Security smooth until you reach carry on check. Disorganized area very cramped, 3-4 individuals at a time to place items in trays."
Cons: "Gate not assigned until 1 hour before boarding but this issue would be workable if the assigned gate is A. I am 68 years old the trek to gate C was ludicrous."
Cons: "Having to collect my luggage in philidelphia then check my bag again for the transfer to lax."
Pros: "Breakfast was good and a surprise. Short flight so did not watch any entertainment. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Checking in at main desk was chaos. Waited in line forever only to be overcharged for my second checked bag compared to their website rate. Inefficient people manning the desks. Boarding was just as chaotic. Crew acted new/disorganized. Seats extremely hard, very little padding. Old plane."
Pros: "The crew were ALL super friendly. My first time on a flight were ALL the stewards were polite, kind and helpful. Usually there's just one, if any. However they were all so friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Although I was in business class the service seemed unattentive and sparse. The crew did not check for passengers needing additional drinks and did not clear the empty glasses until almost the end of the flight. Overall, the crew seemed more suited to economy class than business class."
Cons: "if flight was on time weather would not have been a factor. They would not pay for hotel room. Flight was delayed due to AA issues."
Cons: "I arrived in Los Angeles on a Saturday and was told my luggage was still in London but they would have someone deliver it to me the next day (Sunday) 5-8 pm. No one showed up or bothered to call. I checked the status and was told 10 pm. No one showed. I was then told 12-1 AM. No one showed. No one bothered to call. No one showed up until 3 AM Monday morning. I took my frustrations to twitter and it looks like this is a common occurrence with British Airways."
Pros: "Organized boarding, nice and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Food was mediocre at best, seats uncomfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "Food was good. Movie selection was nice. Crew were polite ad helpful."
Cons: "Due to conflicts with American airlines i was unable to check in and select my seat. Therefore I was not able to sit with my fiancee. Made a very long flight very unpleasant."
Pros: "Well it was operated through American Airlines so it wasn't BA. I don't understand why they do that. And I didn't know it at time of booking. Anyway flight was annoying at first bc it took 10 years to take off. The crew was so so. There was a rude attendant who was male and a really nice one. The guy seemed irritated to be working or asked any questions. The food was decent. And I was lucky to get my own row. So I slept the whole 10 hours. I'd have to check the plane next time I flew with American. The plane on way out of states was awful!!! So it was meh overall."
Cons: "Rude attendant Wouldn't let me use bathroom while it talking 30 years to take off."
Pros: "We took off over an hour late, O well, it happens. What was worse, was the on-board entertainment. I felt like I was back in 1985 where you don't have your own screen, and the airline chooses the films. I'm sorry, but it's 2016, I expect better."
Pros: "On my way to Dublin it was good service everything went smooth boarding, crew and food"
Cons: "On the way back from Dublin I did not like the fact the airplane did not have any entertainment. It is a long trip and just to sit down for more than 10 hours is difficult."
Pros: "Got a big chair without paying extra."
Cons: "Loved the cookies, could of used more."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time Good with giving water with regularity."
Cons: "The Plane was so cold I needed to wear a sweater, scarf, down jacket and a blanket, compared to only having to wear a button up long sleeve shirt for the flight to germany. When i would get up to go to the bathroom I could see a large portion of the passengers wearing winter coats, hats, scarves, and hoods to keep warm. The temperature was never addressed during the flight. The flight crew with one exception could not have been in a worse mood. For example whenever they needed to tell people what the choices for drinks are they gave a big sigh and rolled their eyes. it seemed as if they had been working for 36 hours without a break and they had to smell trash the whole time. I am very unhappy with the way american airlines handled the british airways scheduled flight and i will make sure to not book with them again."
Pros: "Great seats, comfortable plane"
Cons: "The Baby bassinet is a bit small and like a beach lounge chair. It looked like our son was about to be fired out of a catapult."
Pros: "They checked our passports and we boarded immediately after, at the same speed. It was a perfect pace. No gaggle or cattle call."
Cons: "The ride was extremely uncomfortable but that is the fault of the A380. If you are in the cheap seats, look into another airplane. It's simply terrible."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice!"
Cons: "The passengers in front of us were not told to put their seats up during dinner or lunch time. I think, the flight attendant should make that passenger aware. It's very uncomfortable to eat. We were left without service/water between meals. If you are not seated by the aisle, it is not easy to walk to the back and ask for drinks. I flew with other airlines and they have their flight attendants go around quite often offering water."
Pros: "Food was good, movie selection impressive, crew extremely professional"
Cons: "Boarding was amateurish. Instead of boarding economy by seat row they sent everyone in at once which of course was chaotic, chairs not so comfortable since headrest always too hig even for a tall person, and not much room between seat rows."
Pros: "Everything is excellent"
Cons: "The food could've been better."
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"
Pros: "The crew were helpful and efficient - it was a short flight so they had very little time to prepare the meal, distribute the meal and prepare the aircraft for landing - but they did."
Cons: "The English announcements by the cabin crew (not the pre-recorded announcements) were difficult to understand at times due to the accent."
Pros: "The food, the crew, the entertainment."
Cons: "It was an excellent flight!"
Pros: "What I liked was smooth flight. And the fleece blanket."
Cons: "Crew was not even visible in all that time. No water offered, no concern for passenger comfort. Food was skimpy and packaged, no clues what we were eating. Seats were tiniest and least comfortable ever! Difficult to get up from and get out from window seat."
Pros: "Punctual, efficient."
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "crew was ok, at one point I felt like they were just tired, after all it was a 12 hour flight from Madrid to L.A."
Cons: "make sure that the crew is well rested and ready for a long flight."
Pros: "The crew was really lovely. They handled a socially challenged passenger with a lot more patience than she probably deserved."
Cons: "I know it's probably not legal to throw passengers out of a moving plane, but I think the flight would have been a lot better without that disruptive lady making multiple scenes. I don't understand how people who behave that way are capable of travel in the first place"
Pros: "That's the only good thing."
Cons: "Mediocre food, flight attendants were cold and unhelpful. I never heard of 90% of the entertainment offered, and the rest were really old. Bring your own entertainment, and a charging cable. In fact, bring everything you think you will need, water, food, Tylenol for the headache you will definitely have by the end of his flight. No one has any interest in being helpful or making your flight Pleasant."
Pros: "Liked that each seat had its own screen for viewing and the selection of movies."
Cons: "We specifically paid and picked seats in advance towards the front of the plane and when we checked in at the counter the day of they reassigned us to different seats that they choose at the back of the plane without giving us any type of explanation for doing so. What was the point then in charging us extra to pick our seats?! Also when the person in front of you reclines their seat back you are left with very little room."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I never got on this flight."
Cons: "I was at the airport more than 2 hours ahead of my flight time. By the time I made it through check in, security, and immigration, I was already cutting it close. A random security check right at the gate made me miss my flight. There were no timely options to re-route my flight unless it was at a fee of over >$2,000. Horrible, stressful, experience."
Pros: "The movies and the leg room seemed better then normal"
Pros: "Fairly standard international flight. In flight meals were fine. Seats were spacious enough (6’3” I need the legroom)."
Cons: "Not a terrible negative in the slightest; the onboard entertainment won’t load until the plane is in crushing altitude. Thought it was weird as that has never happened before, but not really a problem"
Pros: "Entertainment programs were the only positive"
Cons: "uncomfortable and cramp seats very low quality food Alcohol had to be purchased! Are you serious? This is an international flight!!!"
Pros: "More spacious than the flight to Madrid. Good was fresher good entertainment system."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard."
Cons: "Airliner contracted out to another flight operator. We looked up and down the terminals trying to find the sign for IBERIA to no avail. It was quite hectic and stressful to arrive to the airport and not see your airline booth anywhere. No signage or anything there of to indicate Iberia or the other operator taking over this Iberia's flight. Then they wanted to charge for my carry-on saying it is too large. Went back and forth arguing for about 10 minutes then I found the bag sizing stand and demostrated to them my carry-on bag fits inside the bars as indicated in their sign. They said oh well it looks large from here. Customer Service is non. It is more Customer Harrassment. DO YOU PAY YOUR CUSTER SERVICE REPS Commission for every checked bag or something? Too bad there aren't many more options but I am considering going to social media to with this. NOT HAPPY and not flying with IBERIA anytime soon. SEnd me my refund!"
Pros: "Flight amenities were great! When I discovered my passport was missing at my connection in London, John, the rep made calls to track it down where I left it in the tub at the security check point! He then walked with me to get it and then to re-book my flight since I had missed my scheduled flight......and there was no charge for the new flight! Unheard of in this day and age."
Pros: "The price of the ticket. The meals much better than other airlines."
Cons: "Not being able to adjust my air conditioning"
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: "the AC worked. the last flight had warm air from the vents"
Cons: "flight was delayed 3 hours to begin with.. it was unorganized....no apology was given whatsoever.. plane was a bit uncomfortable. flight crew looked unhappy..I like to see people smile."
Cons: "I was late to catch my plain to San Francisco 5 minutes because it was too much people at customs and the plain coming from Madrid was 15 to 20 minutes late due to the bad weather. The plain was supposed to departure at 6:30pm and I got there at 6:20pm the agent at the gate told me that the doors were closed and she gave me a plain ticket for the next flight to San Francisco."
Cons: "No food no drinks no entertainment and my knees where hitting the seat in front and I am 5 10"
Pros: "Excellent treatment"
Pros: "Only nonstop flight from Madrid to LA"
Cons: "Iberia, please renew your crew or give them some hospitality training"
Pros: "The extra leg room in the exit row. In spite of the fact we had to pay extra for it, it was well worth it. The crew was courteous and professional. The flight was on time."
Pros: "The in flight movie selection was great. They were generous with providing us wine and complementary in flight entertainment . Didn't have to pay extra to check our bags."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good. But at least they provided us with some. We paid extra foe exit row seats and they allowed someone to sir across from my husband in the flight attendant seat they use during landing and take off. He sat there the entire flight. He was tall with long legs and took away from my husbands leg room which is why we paid extra for the exit row seats. Not sure if he worked for the airline as he was dressed in regular street clothes but annoying all the same."
Pros: "I liked the inflight shower courtesy of turbulence and staff serving drinks"
Cons: "Not a British airways flight, but Iberia. No TP in the head"
Cons: "It was not British Airways, they put us on Iberia."
Cons: "Horrible from beginning to ending."
Pros: "Touch screen movies were nice"
Cons: "Forgot to give me dinner then said they ran out of meat dish. Bathrooms dirty and out of toilet paper. Seemed very cramped. Couldn't find call bell to call stewardess. Not happy with Iberia"
Pros: "I liked the air crew and the media systems on the plane."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that we were charged 75 euros because our bags were .5 kilos over weight. The lady put the bags through before giving us the cost and the option to move things around into our carry on bags. That was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "1 hour delay upon arrival die to no available gates"
Pros: "On my return flight to the United states, I got to fly with Iberia airlines. After flying my first segment with British airways, I wondered if the Spanish airline could keep up with BA's standards. Well, Iberia not only met the standards, but raised the bar! I am not sure if the fact that this was a day flight (unlike BA's red eye trip) or the fact that it took 2 more hours, but the crew served a full lunch, a snack AND a light meal, when with British i only received one full dinner and a morning snack."
Cons: "I'm not sure if it's the European dryness, but though helpful, the flight crew did not looked friendly."
Pros: "This was a long international flight so we got dinner, snack, and breakfast included. Food was decent, service fine, and entertainment selection was good. Also, since it was not a full flight, there was extra room and therefore a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "new plane"
Pros: "I like that it was a plane not so big, and there was more space between seats (more leg room) than in similar flights overseas in British Airways planes; the crew was always very friendly and the entertainment very good, lots of good movies to chose from!"
Cons: "The only thing I really did not like of this flight was that it was delayed For about three hours, which affected my plans in the arrival destination"
Pros: "The entertainment was readily available."
Pros: "I liked their service and warm nature of the staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed one hour and 23 minutes so that affected my connection from LA to SFO. My bag couldn't reach back to SFO and I had to run to catch my flight in LA after a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and the food wasn't too bad."
Cons: "The guy in the same row as me took off his shoes and used the remaining seats between us as a bed. I thought it was rude and disgusting and showed a lack of spacial awareness. Blankets were not very soft. Also, one of the flight attendants was really struggling to push any of the trolleys, running into the arm rests of the seat."
Cons: "the flight over LAX to Madrid was horrible. An old plane, both my husband and I had broken seats, no screens, and no charging capability. The flight from MAD to LAX was much better with a newer plan. I would however, not fly with Iberia again, because the out bound flight was so awaful. So average rating is okay."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Checking in and ordering special meal"
Pros: "The crew members always looked me in the eye and made me feel like a human being."
Cons: "Honestly my only complaint would be that I was not given both of my boarding passes when I first checked in in Munich and instead I had to go out and stand in a line for an hour to get my boarding pass for Las Angeles which made me just barely get to my gate on time."
Cons: "poor WIFI service - would be nice to offer this for FREE."
Pros: "I was moved to an aisle seat b/c there was a couple that wanted to sit together. I appreciated that food was provided, but it felt very rushed. I enjoyed the in flight entertainment as it helped the time go much faster. The crew was very nice and did their best to keep passengers comfortable."
Cons: "The flight itself was probably the most turbulent flight i've ever been on. In addition, boarding and de-boarding took a long time. we had to just stand and wait for both - for a much much longr time that normal. They were able to make up the time in the air, but it felt unusually long to both board and de-board."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat from Iberia Airline.The cushion was almost down to spring. Need to upgrade. Crew are not very helpful. Service is not good. Specially at the Airport, speaking English is very bad. I need an assistance to request for PRM ASSISTANCE for wheel chair, I don't believe that he don't speak English at all, Why would he be in that position. It should have bilingual person. I'm sure whether he pretend too I have walk back & forth to get help for information to have it translate to Spanish. All He does is make priority to all local people, it took one hour to get the wheel chair & then by transfer to intl national airport by bus took another hour, we check in @ 8:30AM by the time we get into the terminal was 12:30PM the flight leave 2 12:45PM. What a service. I will never ever flight with Iberia Airline. What a BAD service. Communication by itself is very very bad, the airline crew hardly can speak English. We have 6 people. We will definitely not recommend Iberia Airline. Thank you."
Pros: "Good food, great crew and service. Enjoyed the entertainment options-- plenty of choices. Smooth, comfortable flight."
Pros: "The crew in Madrid was extremely helpful. We almost missed our flight because of traffic getting to the airport but they were able to help us check-in quickly and get our bags on board. We were honestly impressed by their efforts as we were very late. In addition the plane was comfortable and the entertainment offerinand were great. For such a long flight it barely felt that way."
Cons: "The food could have been a little better but overall it was not bad and there were several small meals so we were never hungry"
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Movies were boring..."
Pros: "We didn't die"
Cons: "Entertainment was not awesome at all. Flight attendant was in a bad mood, spilt soda all over my girlfriend without an apology and truly did not care."
