The flight was in time but we got two notifications about a delay. We almost loss the flight because the never updated the plataform and we were thinking the flight would leave one hour later.

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "More time for transfer"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "La comida estuvo muy buena"
Cons: "la amabilidad de la tripulación"
Cons: "The plane broke on the runway and was towed back to the terminal. They put me on the next plane and that one had mechanical issues too and was 30 mins delayed. Scary! I missed my connection to USA. T Aviamca made me pay $600 for a new ticket to Miami and then I had to arrange a new ticket with another airline to get to San Diego. The whole experience cost me the loss of a $3500 ticket, a $600 tickets, a $100 for a rental car, and the loss if my NY Eve plans. They dont care. Do not fly Avianca. Delta or Alaska would never treat a passenger thos way. Beware the Star Alliance. I will give up my Gold status with United in 2020 as a result of the behaviour of their so-called 'partner' airline. Imagine if I had been traveling with my family?! Wow!"
Pros: "YES"
Cons: "ITS OK"
Pros: "Quick board and clean plane"

Cons: "Food was very cheap and movies very very old,most up date a little bit More!!!"
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Pros: "The overall experience was good. The flight crew were nice people. The food was surprisingly good - pork and rice with plantains. The flight attendants were a bit slower than my previous flight experience (2 hours prior) with serving food and beverages though."
Cons: "The tv never worked on row 35 efg. After the flight attendant refreshed the system 3 times, it still didn't work. Also, I heard the guy in front had auxillary issue too so he ended up playing games on his phone over finishing a movie he was watching. The flight attendant did offer to allow my friends and I switch seats to a seat where the tv worked (hence 3 stars, or else i would have rate a 1). We decided to stay at our seat and just enjoy the ride."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system. Many new and interesting movies to choose from. Beautiful new and clean plane."
Cons: "Waited more than 1.5 hours on the tarmac before taking off. Boarding was also chaotic—we were assigned groups, but no one actually uses them."

Cons: "More than one hour of delay in boarding. The seats very uncomfortable for a ten hour+ flight."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "DELAYS. EXTREMELY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. FLIGHT CANCELLATION. AIRLINE NEGLIGENCE."
Cons: "I had been checked in and when I arrived at the gate they told me and my 13 year old son that we could not fly on our direct flight to Medellín because it was overbooked and they had decided to change planes. Absolutely ridiculous, it was about 20-30 passengers that were denied boarding, including us. They sent us on a plane through Bogota, then to Medellín, arriving 7 hours later and only with a dumb breakfast voucher. I spoke to them that I had an important medical appointment for which I was travelling for, it did not matter. They made no no accommodations whatsoever."
Pros: "Basically the plane."
Cons: "I got a really bad customer service experience with one of the members of the crew. She answered my questions in a not polite way."

Cons: "El operador de avianca es unbdesatre. Aviones incómodos y sin confort . Muy malo!"
Pros: "I must recognize I am very pleased with what Avianca offer’s on this flight. The aircraft (Dreamliner) is in a perfect shape, crew is very kind and food was great. I definitely suggest to invest a little bit more of money and try to travel Business Class so you can get the whole experience: quick/easy check-in, VIP Lounge and great flight. Well done Avianca, Congratulations!"
Pros: "They serve a lot of food, and if you need a drink that would not be a problem..."
Cons: "The chairs were not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Excelent service, flight attendants are very professional"
Pros: "Fantastic customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flat bed. New plane. Amenities such as a Tumi bag given out were good"
Cons: "We had seats in 6th row which was right behind the galley area where the flight attendants had their seats. One sat in left side of plane and one on right side. They talked talked talked to each other the entire flight. Not good. They we’re not next to each other so their voices were quite raised. This was th case on all our connecting flights"
Cons: "the aircraft. kind of old"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. We were placed on a bus for over 40 minutes. Plane was not ready. Gate personnel had no idea, lied to us. A complete disaster. NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "Is the Worst; i wait almost Four hours to take the flight from madrid!!! I lost the flight to valencia an the company give me another flight at 10:50 pm im going to arrive un valencia 12 am!!!! Im angry"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Again they boarded he plane before door was open only thisntime it was even colder in Bogota AND it was 7:30 in the morning. Again crew was rude. Didn't clear off food items."
Cons: "Siempre se disculpan por las personas que no alcanzaron a recibir la bebida, si comenzaran mas temprano alcanzan,"
Pros: "excellent crew service"
Cons: "couldn't hear anything even though I was given two sets of earphones and it was a long flight"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "We had a 6 hour delay after traveling all day and being up all night. The actual flight, when we finally got on, was packed and uncomfortable. Our seats didn't recline and were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The 787 was very comfortable and new. Plenty of food. The ground staff compensated us for our lost bags and had them delivered to our hotel the next day."
Cons: "The lost bags."
Pros: "Brief 40 min flight. No complaints."
Pros: "Food was really good."
Cons: "In the seats close to the bathroom of economic class it was impossible to sleep. The sound from the discgarge was horrible!!!! In a flight of 6h it is really important."
Pros: "Business class in Avianca is by far one of the best in Latinamerica. Very comfortable and great service"
Pros: "SEAT comfort variety of movies"
Cons: "Por hacer mantenimiento a ultimo minuto se atraso el vurlo mas de 2 horas. Perdi mi conexion a barcelona Avianca no le importa que uno pierda la conexion ya que ellos le tiran el problema a iberia, asi no responden"

Pros: "Seating was comfortable"
Cons: "The boarding process was not bad. They boarded all passengers at once instead of by rows. I requested a Asian Vegetarian and instead I got a meas 99% pasta and 1% vegetable. Very poor food."
Pros: "Perdida de equipaje"
Cons: "Perdida de equipaje"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Little food"

Amsterdam as a hub is a mess, do not use Amsterdam and KLM as a hub to European cities unless you want to miss your flight.

The boarding crew was rude, everything was disorganized with lack of information.

Better food more confortable seats.

Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm

same as from LUX … professional, nice.

Not the first time we have experienced defective entertainment system on this trip. It should be upgraded.

Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."

Crew wa great. Food could have been better. Flight was delayed by 3 hours

Delay was terrible staff didn’t inform you, staff were rude and unfriendly. The plane was a piece of junk and extremely dirty on tv no headset. We got serviced a meal and nothing else no tea, coffee, beverages it was disgusting. I had a connecting flight with Aer Lingus and I informed the staff I had missed it due to the delay and they didn’t care they said if your not happy go somewhere else I was totally disappointed as I was going home for my mother’s funeral. I will not recommend Aer Lingus not a happy customer

The airplane was freezing the whole time, and the entertainment systems were glitchy. (They also weren't touch-screen, so there weren't any games.) The food was nice, and the crew was very helpful with answering questions and providing blankets (although I was still very cold, even with the blanket).

Cons: "Crew was a bit loud and kept me awake during flight in one of the tail seats"
Pros: "I love that you fly from Hartford. It makes my travel to Europe so much easier! Thank you!!!!"
Cons: "Our flight seemed to have only 1 toilet at the back of the plane that passengers were allowed to use so there was always a line. There was a second toilet in the crew area at the back and it seemed that they could have offered passengers to use that."
Cons: "They do not offer free bags to America anymore."
Cons: "Not much legroom"
Pros: "Never made it onto the plane due to flight departing early and my flight landed in Dublin late. So there was no experience for me on this flight"
Cons: "The flight to Madrid left with about 15 passengers waiting to leave the flight from Chicago. We landed before our flight to Madrid was to depart. But by time we walked out we all missed our flight and had to rebook. I’m sure the flight to Madrid could’ve waited for the 15 of us. But they didn’t."
Pros: "Overall everything went better than expected. Flew Aer Lingus from East Coast through Dublin to Rome. Making the connection in Dublin was the easiest connection I’ve ever made and I fly multiple times every month. I would fly Aer Lingus to Europe again for sure."
Cons: "We did not get to select the seats. I did get an extremely low priced fare so I was prepared. The seats were in the very back of the plane from Dublin to Rome even though there were many seats open throughout the plane. I couldn’t figure out how to purchase upgrades using the app."
Pros: "The crew did great - especially Rob!"
Pros: "The crew was charming and very attentive to passengers."
Cons: "Could have announced that there was a cost for ginger ale etc. before passengers placed request. Frankly overall it was excellent service."
Pros: "No food no entertainment"
Pros: "Decent legroom, pillows and blankets, food and drink all at no cost (paid for bag, opted not to pay for seats and still ended up together)."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight to Dublin from Chicago was delayed therefore my flight to Birmingham is even more delayed. Let’s just say, I’m really not happy. also, I had to pay to get my family to sit together and therefore ended up paying for some stranger ‘s seat. I will contact Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Plane was half full."
Cons: "Food was terrible, and if you’re white and your significant other is black you may have to request things for her because she won’t get them even when she asks"
Pros: "The efficient flight but no drinks or snacks w/o purchase"
Pros: "This was a round trip. From Hartford to Dublin went without a hitch. From Dublin to Hartford was a nightmare - we arrived ninety minutes before scheduled take-off, having checked in and gotten seat assignments the night before. The flight was closing to boarding as we arrived at the airport,so we could not use the self-service kiosks for baggage tags and we got NO direction on how to short-circuit the hours'-long line, even though there is a procedure for doing so. Result - we had to rebook at our cost for the following day and pay for another night in a hotel."
Pros: "The seating was comfortable"
Cons: "The fact you even had to pay for coffee is absurd . There also should be some in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. Boarding process could have been better it was slow."
Cons: "It would be nice to offer more than just coffee, tea or water for free and come around more often."
Cons: "They lost our strollers which put us into a really difficult situation, since we had to carry our two toddlers + our infant during the 5hour connection time in LND."
Cons: "I asked for Vegetarian food when I booked the flight but I didn't get any. When I asked for Veg food, I was told they didn't have any. With delays and everything, I didn't get to eat anything for 16 some hours."
Pros: "They were able to accommodate our seat requests at the gate. Like the ability to watch fairly new movies for free."
Cons: "Seat could use a little more cushion. Butt was sore at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Seats were larger with more leg room. Flight calm and without incident"
Cons: "No snack"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"
Cons: "I had to pay 3 euros for a cup of black tea? Seriously? The captain could have lowered the volume when speaking. It was too loud."
Pros: "I had much admiration for the 2 sets of parents of 2 screeching babies who were basking in total oblivion as to the aggravation their little bundles of joy were creating among the 100 other passengers. To be that insensitive to others is quite a feat. What could they have done, you ask? When my children got unruly on flights (very rarely) my wife whisked them off to the bathroom until they were calm. It's what responsible parents do. Not sit and smile at you. And when we reached Munich, we waited more than a half hour for luggage that came in spits and spurts... It was the perfect final flourish to a miserable 12 plus hours on your airline. I'm thrilled at the prospect of my return to LA next week and what surprises may be in store for me!"
Cons: "It was mercifully short..."
Cons: "Boarding process in Dublin was long"
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hour is barely enough for going to U.S. because U.S. pre-custom clearance takes a long time. This should be taken into consideration when the airline provides this flight option. When we get boarding pass for the second leg, Dublin to LAX, the way seats are assigned doesn't make any sense. I was assigned to row 12 but my husband was assigned to row 36. We checked in together. When we got on board, there were plenty of seats available, so it did not make sense that we were not assigned together."
Pros: "check in was efficient."
Cons: "purchase of beverages; lack of understanding food schedule"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks of any kind."
Pros: "The flight was very bare bones. Entertainment system froze up half way into a movie. You had to pay for wine with dinner. Even on budget carriers, wine is included with meals on the long hauls. Half a cup of water was served twice during the flight. The cabin was kept quite cold. I wore thick socks and slippers throughout the flight, but had to use the small blanket provided to keep my feet warm. Glad I had a heavy coat! I will avoid this carrier on any long hauls in the future."
Cons: "Dinner not too good. Breakfast very poor. Cold flight. Entertainment not working. Avoid for long hauls."
Pros: "Good staff, nice entertainment options. Pilot spoke to the cabin about flight route, turbulence, things to see out the window, etc."
Cons: "No alcoholic drinks with meal on an international flight, bags were lost on the flight home."
Cons: "Out of your control but the shuttling around from gate to gate was inconvenient"
Pros: "The seats were incredibly comfy."
Cons: "They kept the cabin lights on throughout the entire flight, so it was impossible to sleep. My rating for entertainment and food is not really applicable because the flight was short and didn't have either."
Pros: "Flight crew pleasant and efficient considering it was almost a full flight. We departed Hartford 30 minutes late, but arrived only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "My seat had a broken fold down tray which meant that food and drinks would slide off unless I held it up by my knee."
Cons: "They airline left our luggage in Dublin and we still do mat have it. It's been over a day. 25 other people were impacted by this error. My daughters wedding is in two days. I have no clothes. My tray table was filthy. Had to ask the flight attendant for a wet napkin to clean the tray and my hands."
Cons: "Narrowness of seats is extreme. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Flight crew should have not set our expectations after leaving Paris one hour late then sitting on tarmac in Dublin with the hopes we would still make our connecting flight. Stress level was karen higher by this point"
Cons: "Took us 14 additional hours to make it home. Airline and connections should be more realistic."
Pros: "Orderly boarding. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "Online seat assignment was unavailable. Once onboard, it felt like flight staff were reluctant to give water and keep passengers hydrated on the Air Lingus flight from SFO to DUB. They even offered my 11 and 14-yr olds coffee and tea over water! We had to ask 3 times every time we needed water. Both Aer Lingus flights to DUB and to MAD were delayed."
Cons: "No USB ports"
Pros: "Friendly and professional service from the flight crew, the food was fine, and the flight was not too crowded."
Cons: "The viewing screen on for my seat was not working properly, but I had an empty seat next to me and could use that one,"
Pros: "The people who worked at the front desk and boarding desk were very friendly and met my needs. As I asked to sit up front and they got me seats by aisle in the front. The beef stew were good"
Cons: "We are really upset that Aer Lingus and/or Bitish Airways lost our baggeage! All our clothes, toiletries, medicine, and other personal belongings are MIA and we want these two airlines to work together and expedite finding and tertuning our luggage."
Cons: "The flight from Ireland to Spain was fine. The flight from Chicago to Ireland, absolutely horrible. I will never use Kayak again. My wife and I showed up to O'Hare in Chicago to be told that the flight is cancelled. There was no notification, absolutely nothing. I was on hold for nearly 2 hours with Kayak. Once finally connected, the customer service agent, argued with us for nearly an hour saying the flight was not cancelled!!!! We googled it! We told him to look up on google, and he kept on saying we were wrong! After 3 hours go by, he tells "oops, it's cancelled". We wasted nearly 5 hours with Kayak to try and get different seats, and then Kayak gave my wife and I seats that are not sitting together. If Kayak, looked on google, and actually tried to help I would've had seats with my wife. So disappointing. Worst experience I've had with customer service and with a company. I'll never use Kayak again."
Pros: "On time and very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Luggage missing"
Cons: "Let us board, then flight was delayed. Sat on tarmac 2 hours. Didn't offer any snacks. Dinner options were poor."
Pros: "Great in flight entertainment. Everyone was nice and friendly, I had an extra seat, and I loved being able to charge my phone"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"
Pros: "Crew good. Seat cramped"
Cons: "Cabin crew not pro active. No mid flight drinks/water offered."
Pros: "Customer service was acceptable"
Cons: "Flights were cancelled and had to take another airline. Bags were also lost for 5 days!"
Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"
Pros: "I made it alive"
Cons: "American airlines will leave you out to dry if there are any issues. Never had so many issues with the same airline."
Pros: "AA has good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "1+ hour delay, could’ve left on time"
Cons: "Only arriving in Madrid took 1/2 to open the door"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Small space. Old plane. Tight seats."
Pros: "All the trip , not my food selection"
Cons: "6L to close to the galley"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was nice."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "nothing good nothing bad, just ok."
Cons: "737 might as well be a cattle cart..."
Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Food, seat"
Cons: "Never flying again with this company"
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. We waited several hours for another plane to come, and this flight was cancelled as well due to maintenance. We waited in line for 2 hours to be rerouted and now we can’t go out until tomorrow afternoon. We will miss 2 days of our vacation. Terrible experience"
Cons: "2 of our screens didn’t have audio working so couldn’t watch movies :-(. - assistants rebooted the systems but that didn’t help :-("
Pros: "Don't know. Never made it that far."
Pros: "When we left the gate"
Cons: "Weather"
Pros: "It works if you follow the rules."
Cons: "I could tell you how I liked it if I wasn’t sleeping inthe Ronald Reagan National Airport."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Very old plane. No personal entertainment. Very basic service."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Attitude of in flight crew terrible food"
Pros: "Great light, great staff. They did not have any movies or music you could listen to, but everything else was fabulous."
Pros: "Long flight, but I really like the 787. Comfortable travel."
Cons: "American airlines mishandled my luggage. Extremely poor communication about status. (I don't know how much all my phone calls to them will end up costing!) Two and a half days later, I have to return to the airport to pick it up. If you travel with AA, pack MORE than essentials in your carry-on! Also it is criminal that they charge extra for aisle seats!"
Cons: "Space on coach seats was awful."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Very pleasant staff"
Cons: "Inability to charge cell phone, poor location of TV, & inability to hear the music & movie well"
Pros: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
Pros: "Not muchi"
Cons: "I ordered a gluten free dinner for my husband and even checked on I two days before and they didn’t have it. He basically had no dinner"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "For an international flight it was very cramped seating - much worse than the connecting domestic flight."
Pros: "We got delayed 2 hours, we got very early to the airport, went to the gate, all the sudden they change the gate number and didn't tell nobody, we got delayed 2 hours and they didn't say nothing. we had perfect weather in NY so I don't understand the delay. The crew members were not friendly, the airplane was so old, my daughter called "the dinosaur" is the airplanes from the 70"s . This was my first time flying with this airline and I don't think Ill do it again. We were going to a wedding in Madrid and we miss it for the delayed."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "AA lost my luggage for several days. This is unacceptable. It required my wife and I to spend money on items that were unnecessary. We could not obtain good information on whether they were lost or mis-routed. The worry of whether we should buys clothes, toiletries, etc. was a daily concern. Way to ruin a customer's vacation."
Cons: "They ran out of choices."
Pros: "Airline counter worker in Philadelphia reeassigned my seat twice so that I can get a window seat with no one next to me (thanks!). Tons of films on the free entrainment system."
Cons: "Someone attempted to claim the seat next to me and the flight attendant allowed him. Luckily he moved elsewhere after I objected. There were plenty of other empty seats."
Pros: "How expedite everything was and how helpful the aa personnel at the airport were. Flight attendants were efficient and friendly."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, no hassles"
Cons: "Tight space but overall not unexpected"
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The shared screens."
Cons: "Liked it all."
Pros: "The pilot was amazing!"
Cons: "food"
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Only pretzels were served. Crew was very nice. Friendly too!"
Cons: "-missed my connecting flight at 10pm due to weather. -waited in long line for customer service -received a phone number to book hotel -waited 30 minutes for shuttle -waited behind 8 people who checked into their rooms -when it was finally my turn they had not received my reservation and I was told to take a seat and wait, -eventually I called the booking number again, the call got dropped due to no service in the hotel lobby -I had to go outside to call after midnight! (a female alone) -finally after 45 minutes they received my reservation. -I didnt get to my room until 1am and had to get up at 5 to get the shuttle back to the airport -Frustrating and nerve racking experience"
Pros: "Entertainment screens were easy to use and fun. Crew was extraordinarily nice and attentive."
Cons: "Boarded 2 hours late due to the flight crew reaching the maximum amount of hours they can fly by law. American should be more aware of their employees' hours. Seats need better head rests. Menu needs more vegetarian options and the prices need to be lower."
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Delayed for 'weather' but weather was fine and missed my connection by 10 min and needed to sleep the entire night in airport"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Very little room amongst the seats. Tiny armrests and little room to move in your seat without disturbing the neighbor. No entertainment"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The space in the seats are very small for such a long trip"
Pros: "Modern screens and seats"

Pros: "Comfy seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Pros: "Flight at time. Arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "I ordered a cava bottle and it was hot. But rest was ok"
Cons: "The airline accepted our checked baggage, although they already knew that it would not make it to our final destination (Marrakech) on the same day that we would arrive. We had to pay, out of our own pockets, for the inconvenience. Apparently this happens a lot, and it happened to our entire plane"
Pros: "Crew was nice and reliable."
Cons: "Beverages should be complimentary."
Pros: "Tus crew"
Pros: "The food included veal."
Cons: "Departure was 1 hour delayed."
Pros: "Iberia cancelled my incoming flight to Madrid and put me on an earlier one, but refused to let me on the earlier flight to Bilboa, which made a long waiting time!"
Cons: "The airplane was super uncomfortable and it was a long flight. I’ve flown with Iberia to Europe in the past and this was my worst experience in terms of comfort."
Pros: "seat empty next to me"
Cons: "food, flight attendants"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Had to want in aisle to go to bathroom while beverage cart took forever to get to the back of the plane. Line was 12 deep to get there."
Cons: "We we’re delayed 3 1/2 hours causing us to miss our flight to San Sebastian. That, in turn, caused us to miss our check in for our hotel that we had already paid for so we ended up spending $300 on nothing."
Pros: "The movie/tv selection was extensive"
Cons: "I’ve never had such a bad meal on a plane. I don’t expect fine dining but I felt sick to my stomach afterward. My flight sat in by the tarmac for an hour. I only made my connection because that flight was also an hour late. Boarding was really chaotic."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The lack of water offers during the flight"
Pros: "Boarding, on time"
Cons: "Not much room in seats. Especially if sest in front gets reclined."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours. Very little explanations. We were herded onto flight and staff at gate were beyond rude and aggressive."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was in bad shape, dirty and the seats were very worn out. There was no entertainment."
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."
Cons: "crew... food was awful..."
Pros: "Comfort and crew were good,"
Cons: "Delay in takeoff due to equipment repair"
Cons: "Entertainment Screens did not work. Charged for drinks."
Cons: "late departure from boston resulted in late arrival in madrid.More than 12 passengers missed the connecting flight to malaga by about ten minutes. iberia could have delayed the flight to malaga and its customers would have had a much better day."
Pros: "Seats were too crowded. No leg room."
Cons: "Small plane. Poor landing."
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: "Smooth boarding Professional and bilingual crew"
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "the flight crew was cordial and efficient. we arrived on time."
Cons: "The planes were older and the seats were not comfortable for the length of the flights."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute due to a hurricane. Both British airlines and Iberian airlines posted conflicting information as to the flight cancellation, hence affecting hotel reservations and proceeding flights. The whole process has been a nightmare. I will have serious reservations booking future flights with either airline. Very disappointed !"
Pros: "Food, entertainment (great monitors), new cabins."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/pescatarian meals available so I literally ate bread rolls for dinner & the tv audio was broken. I paid $40 for 45 MB of WIFI so that I could work and the internet lasted about 10 minutes. i couldn't even send an email within that time. The tv screen itself kept flipping back down to the aisle. Finally, the temperature was freezing & the bathrooms were disgusting."
Pros: "Pilot was great, soft landing, smooth takeoff"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. I appreciated the blanket, headphones, and pillow. One of the staff was very rude to the gentleman next to me because he asked for tea after she passed by with it the first time."
Pros: "Smoothest flight ever"
Cons: "No beverage of any sort offered"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was great also. As the plane wasn't full, I was able to move my seat and have two seats which was lovely. Thank you"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane. I had a jacket on and socks and used two of the blankets and was still cold. I also had tried to contact Iberia to order a special meal, but was not able to get through on the line even though I tried for several days. I also was not able to figure out how to order a meal on-line. I was disappointed with the choices of movies."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "I think they should offer complementary water"
Pros: "Reasonable leg room for a a 6 foot tall passenger"
Cons: "Old planes, pilot didn't communicate at times when he would mess around with engine speed and then increase altitude suddenly. Some passengers were truly scared."
Pros: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent movie selection, ample leg room, clean and new plane, staff was attentive."
Cons: "Food was average, foot rests were hard to operate, alcohol selection was scant, only beer and wine are complimentary, you must pay for spirits in premium economy"
Pros: "Commuter flight. Got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "Small plane, no leg room, very little carry-on space. All I had is a small backpack and I almost did have a place to put it."
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Cons: "Went well"
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: "We did not get Kosher meals even so we order it while buying the tickets. The crew was very nice and help us with the kids meal"
Cons: "W"
Cons: "Hard to see how anything could have been done about this, but on my flight every seat was taken (except the one next to me) so I thought I'd have a little extra leg room....NOT!!! Then a 300-lb guy sits in the seat next to me. So for 11 hours I'm trapped by this guy's huge bulk and it was difficult to move my legs around any; very unpleasant. And I paid $45 to get that window seat instead of my original seat that had been randomly assigned!! I wish that airlines provided a couple seats for tall people, because our height is a kind of disability given the cramped seating (which average height people complain about)."
