Cons: "Late. Late. Always late !! Because there is always delay , missed connecting flight obviously never wait."

Pros: "The crew was great. The plane was either fairly new or recently refurbished. The new thinner padding on the seats was not a problem at all. For an inexpensive flight they gave a good value."
Cons: "The food was decent but not special."
Pros: "Plane was nice, new, every seat had an entertainment system. Crew was very nice and did their best to accommodate my needing a gluten free meal. *This was an Iberia plane, not an American Airlines plane."
Cons: "The Iberia web site, and web app were not functioning properly. I want able to save any of my personal information such as phone number or known traveler number. I was unable to select a gluten free meal prior to the flight since the web app and website were not working. I tried calleding Iberia customer support over 10 different times and was never able to speak with a representative. The customer support prior to the flight was non-existent."
Pros: "I liked everything about my experience on four Iberia flights. The boarding was fair by groups and they didn't allow people cutting the lines. The planes were new. The food served was very good and had a great variety of tastes to please different cultures. The entertainment system on my seat was awesome!! Customizable music playlist that was All genres of music. The navigational pages were fun and interesting and the movies were current."
Pros: "I had an empty seat beside me on both legs of my flight. This always makes flying more enjoyable. They fed us two meals both directions. There were pillows and blankets for everyone on your seat when you arrived."
Pros: "Boarded, departed on time arrived early. Food was good snd served timely. Attendents were very friendly"
Pros: "Staff was nice. Seat was standard."
Cons: "Small movie selection."
Pros: "comfortable seats, efficient service both getting on and off the plane,very current movies. Overall a very good experience"
Pros: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"
Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."
Cons: "I had a seat on an aisle, which was good. But, the TV / video screen did not work. Luckily there wasn't a passenger next to me, and I used that screen. I told the steward, but never got help with the screen. I had to " Lean " for the 9 hours. The bathrooms became gross after 5 hours. I don't need to explain."
Pros: "It seems a bit unfair to rate Finnair, when the flight was serviced by Iberia...that being said - everyone seemed to be put out by any request or basic question. The movies were really good and (UNLIKE the flight from Chicago to Madrid, where i was told they didn't do that) the stewardess on the flight home didn't mind giving me a second glass of wine."
Cons: "the people at the boarding desk in O'Hare were rude & indifferent. The flight attendants on way to Spain were non-existant The food was comically awful!!! The man at the check-in desk in Madrid could not have been ruder or less helpful (Hopefully for his wife's sake!) The food on the way home again was unfortunate.....that can NOT possibly be the best food any company can find in Spain. Hell - wed have been better off with a cheese & ham plate with some bread!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and gave us a $10 meal vou"
Cons: "The long delay wasn't great."
Pros: "The Movies"
Cons: "The stewardess could have been nicer. Very rushed, they were polite but just rushed! Also the lack of CLEAR English speaking crew!!!"

Pros: "I liked the price."
Cons: "It's all crammed but given the price I can't complain"
Pros: "Best price from Dallas to Barcelona, and then Madrid to Dallas."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "No way to get seat assignments until 4 hours before flight"
Pros: "Wonderful service and care from crew."
Pros: "The flight was operated by Iberia. The crew was very good, the flight was on time and it was a comfortable flight. It was not a full flight (either way to or from Madrid) and there was plenty of room to spread out and sleep which was nice. The entertainment system was great with many options from TV to movies to games and music. The food was only fair but included a meal and a large snack. I will definitely take this flight again."
Cons: "nothing to dislike about the experience"
Pros: "For the first time ever I had a flight on British Airways where I did not feel like I wanted to choke somebody at the end of the flight - so I was pleasantly surprised at this particular BA flight."
Cons: "BA gates in NYC are abysmal - the entire terminal is... Why are the restaurants advertising being open to some specific time (well prior to the departure of this flight) yet then have staff holler at you that they are closed when you try to go in well before that time. It would have been very nice to have been able to sit down and have some dinner prior to the flight, but the rudeness of both of the two restaurants and their staff was worthy of the notoriety of NYC attitudes (which I don't generally see in mainstream NYC society)."
Pros: "geting off"
Cons: "To cramped so I will go back to Delta"
Pros: "The price was right. The crew were very pleasant and attentive. Seating had sufficient room. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Seats did not recline properly, were not comfortable and very hard and hard on the bum."
Pros: "I made it home safe"
Cons: "Little legroom for such a long flight. Too crowded."
Pros: "Although I booked this as Finnair, it was actually a British Airways flight, as I knew it would be. And it was fine--I don't think Finnair gets much credit, but whatever. I'd actually have liked to travel with someone more exotic!"
Pros: "Services, food, smooth landing."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the flight crew and attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so close that we felt like cordwood stacked vertically. There wasn't elbow roon to butter my roll without elbowing the person in the next seat. The food was boring. It was very cold, despite my dressing warmly. It was a relief to board our next flight, which was JetBlue."
Pros: "The food and Cava were excellent. So were the friendly staff."
Cons: "Seats slightly too small, but thankfully not as bad as American Airlines on the way over: that was horrible!"
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the entertainment was updated."
Cons: "Philadelphia airport services were terrible: - immigration processing was too long and took more than one hour dur to out of service customs machines and insufficient immigration personnel. - luggage handling at the airport careless and resulted in the breaking of some of my belongings."
Pros: "Entertainment system was awesome and worked very well. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Bathrooms were very dirty. But I didn't visit them til near the end of the 10 hour flight. That would be why. Our flight took off 1.5hrs late due to plane air conditioning problems."
Pros: "Very good flight"
Pros: "I liked the food and the service. It was a packed plane but I was well attended to. Would fly again."
Cons: "Slightly long line at the Madrid airport for check in. I wasn't able to check in online but I got there early and it wasn't an issue."
Pros: "Pleasant helpers moved me through the maze and queues"
Cons: "Airport is vast. Transport to T4Satellite left me in nowhere land for a long time. Had longer layover which was fortunate."
Pros: "This flight, the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food is bad"
Cons: "It was operated by Iberia , and Iberia never let u check in or choose your seat online."
Pros: "i sat next to someone nice."
Cons: "nearly was late because of iberia air check in complication. also i despise flying with iberia and had made hallal request that didnt get processed. abd flight was delayed 4 hours."
Pros: "We took off on time and landed early."
Cons: "I booked this flight on Finnair. After I paid my non refundable fee, I found that I was booked on Iberia. While I was pleased with Iberia, there are some airlines that I would prefer not to use and there are some that I would never use. This a a critical lack of relevent information when booking through Kyak. I booked the flight after checking the on time and safety record of Finnair assuming, naturally, that Finnair would be the carrier. I think you should know the carrier BEFORE you book."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Comfort of plane, meal was good, etc"
Cons: "Seat 10 A excellent...but cabin temp cold...many were wrapped, including me, in blanket!"
Cons: "They would seat my wife and I separate unless we paid over 60 dollars per person. I had no information that the flight number and departure time had changed. We also had to board last because there was a software glitch for people with a US visa."
Cons: "Still can't figure out what time to check in to get seat I wanted: 27 hrs before the flight there were no good seats, while the instruction told you could check in only 24 hrs before the flight !!!"
Pros: "Comfortable, well appointed aircraft. Good service."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to check in online and to select a seat assignment."
Pros: "Service was top notch for economy."
Cons: "I was able to roll the blanket into a cushion to put under my thighs so that my hips didn't press into the chair seat. It made the 10 hours bearable."
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"
Cons: "J’ai eu à payer un bagage supplémentaire sur internet à 160 euros. Mon compte a été débité et à l’aéroport de Dakar les agents au comptoir me disent qu’ils ne retrouvaient pas le payement du troisième bagage. J’ai été obligé de repayer le bagage comptant à 190€"
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Cons: "More options for gluten free food. Always get the same dish"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Great crew and prompt boarding."
Cons: "Airline food and close main cabin seating. Should offer upgraded meals, just like the extra seating space."
Pros: "On time, no hassle."
Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class. I thought I had seen someone in civilian clothes setting in a area right behind the pilots chair. They did return to cockpit area near end of flight"
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Cons: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Pros: "Fantastic Crew!"
Cons: "Seats are comfortable but tight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Cons: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Cons: "Being in the middle of the 4 seats with guys on both sides. They tend to restrict the space by using the arm rests."
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we could not make out connecting flight. We had to wait 6 hours get another flight to Atlanta and then fly to Boston the next day, longest flight ever was horrible I called out sick from work too."
Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Boarding staff helpful with Disabilities; food services quick and pleasant; interior cabin temps appropriate."
Cons: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
Pros: "Crew was nice and responsive"
Cons: "The overall experience is regular at best"
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"

Cons: "Late takeoff, priority seating happens same time as general boarding, two pieces of lost luggage"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "I am a 70 year old woman with reduced mobility. The flight attendants made sure that I was given an aisle seat and they helped me find a seat with two empty ones next to me. The crew could not have been kinder."
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."
Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."
Cons: "Food offering"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "We got the extended leg room seat we asked for, but next time I will be a bit more particular about its position. The problem was we were right behind the Business/Economy partition, which a) limited our stowage and b) it was a passageway for passengers getting from on aisle to the other."
Cons: "We Flew business class. Very ordinary."
Pros: "Usual BA welcome"
Cons: "Luckily the plane was delayed as my incoming flight was slightly delayed and BA had booked me on flights that take 40 minutes to get between gates I had to run. From there the delay grew as seems to be typical of BA at the moment. Also by the time the trolley made it to me there was only one sandwich choice left."
Pros: "Cancel month ago, NO money back !!! No good company"
Cons: "Cancel month ago, NO money back ! No good company."
Pros: "Ran into some turbulence and the pilot did a great job calming down the passengers and explain the weather situation."

Pros: "I slept. Pillow, blanket, clean disposable headrest cover Food was decent Way above average crew."
Cons: "Long boarding process. Broken headphone jack."

Pros: "It was a short flight but everyone was proper and professional, as I like!"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "I liked the ability to check in online. Check in staff could be a little bit friendlier. Flight crew were fairly pleasant. Entertainment on board was excellent."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that when I tried to download my boarding pass on to my BA app, it told me there appeared to be an issue with at least one of my travelling documents when this was absolutely incorrect (was travelling with a valid British passport). I had no problems whatsoever at the airport at the check in counter. Also, the boarding gate was slightly chaotic. Most people didn't know which queue to join at the boarding gate. Some form of clear explanation when you arrive at the boarding gate would be helpful."
Cons: "Rerouted due to a cancellation"
Cons: "Not enough legroom. Seats with more room are priced 100€ more, as if we should be paying for being a bit taller. Again, too cold. One or two degrees up would have been comfortable. The entertainment system is a bit clumsy and has odd choices. SAS planes are better in that department for example."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal overall service good no complaints in that regard"
Cons: "My son is 6 foot 4 and it really would have been nice to have more options for more leg room that didn't cost $266 per person we were really scrunched in there and it was pretty uncomfortable for 6 or 7 hours"
Pros: "The staff were excellent, very professional and cordial. Food was delicious and plentiful. The special diet I ordered for my daughter was delicious as well. Airplane and facilities were clean throughout."
Pros: "Seating quality was good Crew was fine"
Cons: "They could be better, friendlier"
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Pros: "The plane is comfortable and clean. Crew amiable and efficient."
Cons: "Not even complementary water was offered on a 2-hour flight. No entertainment at all. The difference with low-cost companies is narrowing."
Pros: "The new boarding process (just one general call, rather than a bunch of zones) was simple, quiet, and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. There were small ridges on the left and right side - perhaps to compensate for the very shallow seat depth. But these made it hard to sit more on one side of the seat than the other, something you'd want to do if you were sat next to someone who took up a good deal of armrest area. Media screens had a good selection but were unresponsive and had poor picture quality."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "Food was poor Service was mechanical non personal"
Pros: "Great snack options and wide drink assortment"
Cons: "Red wine wasn't that great"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment units often malfunction. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "Flight staff was very nice"
Pros: "Food and staff service was amazing"
Cons: "Opportunity to purchase snacks and have wifi available."
Pros: "On time, fast baggage return. Dinner (herbed chicken) was very tasty. Generous drinks"
Cons: "Pre-arrival snack was just chips or candy bars, after a 7+ hour flight."
Pros: "British airways are putting effort into good bathrooms in airport. On time. No problems. Good quality food. Free tea and food."
Cons: "in seat 40 there was no food choice. for baggage."
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight."
Pros: "I like that the staff was very kind, accommodating and professional."
Pros: "Boarding was good and flight was on time. Crew were polite and attentive. Food was okay too."
Cons: "No leg room and as usual I had an uncomfortable 6 hours with my legs jammed against the seat in front. Having spent $900 on the flights I am not going to pay another $81 for the 'upgrade'. Also, even as a slim person, the seats are crammed together so we all knock elbows and I am disappointed that all the airlines continue to reduce space. Arrival at Logan, Boston was a nightmare...2 hours to get through passport control, customs and baggage pick up. Don't fly into Boston at 9pm Saturday night! I flew outbound with AerLingus and the leg room was better so I will look to fly with them next time."
Pros: "flight crew were very friendly and mostly helpful, except when they could not locate my meal, and i ended up getting about half of what the other diners got."
Cons: "boarding seems intent of creating class divisions. it may be useful for profitability, but it seems quite weird in today's world. food was significantly worse than the food on another flight i had taken the same day, delhi to london. seats are a bit janky and we had problems with the seat ahead reclining too much and not being able to be held upright."
Pros: "Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I was offered free tap water. No way to treat passengers."
Cons: "Seats on 747 recline back way too far. Could not enjoy my flight back from London with the guy in front of me reclined back so far. Was forced to recline my seat all the way back as well if I wanted to watch anything. I guess it's OK if you are on an overnight flight and just want to sleep. Everything else was great though."
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Pros: "Great modern plane with plenty of room. Food was great and loved the free wine."
Cons: "Boarding could have been done more efficiently."
Pros: "Everything was good on this flight. The staff were excellent, very professional, and were very helpful. When they heard about our plight at LHR Term. 5 when connecting to this flight, they were very considerate and offered to send in a report (still waiting for the result of this, no contact yet 6 days later). Again, the luggage space and lie-flat seats (Club World) and meals (except my gluten-free meal) were very good, as was entertainment and cleanliness of the plane and lavs. This flight was supposed to be delayed by two hours, but in the end, they managed to take off at the originally scheduled time. More good news: the flight was smooth and arrived on time and most importantly, safely. Luggage arrived quickly and in good condition on the carousel. BA is really good!"
Cons: "Lavs: Lavs were clean, which is always good, but there was no red/green availability lights on this aircraft, those would be helpful."
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful crew;"
Pros: "one of my employee was left at Spain because his information wasn't found in the your sistem. he is still in Spain and His name is Julio Cesar Paul."
Pros: "The BA staff was very courteous. I missed a connection and they put me on another flight."
Cons: "I didn't like how the itinerary only allowed for 1 hr at gatwick airport and I had to go through customs and security just to get from one terminal to another. I talked with one of the BA staff and they said that all of their operations are getting consolidated to one terminal so this shouldn't be a problem in the future."
Pros: "This flight was very empty, which made for quick boarding and a comfortable journey. We were on time and luggage came out promptly. Overall a really easy flying experience (despite a bit of turbulence)."
Cons: "The pasta dishes continue to be uninspiring, but at least the dessert was tasty! Also, my last BA flight had outlets for personal electronic devices, which this did not - I would have really appreciated having a way to charge my laptop and keep working."
Cons: "We need more space!! You know that, we know that , everyone knows that"
Pros: "Food was excellent for an airline, free wine doesn't hurt. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Very cramped seating, seats and blankets looked dated (read: kind of gross)."
Pros: "The plane had quite a bit of leg room, more than my flight from Denver to London. The movie selection was nice. Free wine and beer is always a plus. They gave a nice sized cup of coffee, but the coffee was terrible. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The head phone jack only allowed sound in one ear. The food wasn't great, and the expectations were low."
Pros: "Same as before. But I flew with Iberia."
Cons: "El dia 27/marzo/16 volamos mi esposa, 4 hijos y yo de Madrid a Londres vuelo # 459, el cual llego tarde y perdimos la conexión del vuelo DIRECTO a San Diego # 273, nos mandaron vía Chicago y volvimos a perder la conexión a San Diego por pura lentitud del personal de British, teniendo que dormir en Chicago, nos dieron hospedaje y 100 dlls para cenar para 6 personas (gaste lo doble). Al día siguiente, estuve cerca de 90 minutos batallando para que me imprimieran los pases de abordar porque supuestamente British no había pagado los boletos a American Airlines. Les pido me recompensen con boletos redondos por todas estos inconvenientes. Saludos y gracias, Fernando Vizcarra"
Pros: "Stewardess was very pleasant and managed youth group behaviors well!"
Pros: "Location in the aircraft"
Pros: "Entertainment System was very good, crew communicated what was going on well, and it turned out to be a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Seat 39D had a fixed full aisle arm rest resulting in even less legroom. Only 1 toilet at back of plane - more people waiting for a single toilet, expecting more.. (I didn't use the ones at the front of the cabin) if the toilets get any smaller I doubt I'll be able to get in and use it. As I was near the back of the cabin, no choice of meal available when they got to me, given Pasta which I wont eat. Bread rolls were good."
Pros: "I booked on BA but flew Iberia. The crew were friendly. The food was better than many airlines I have flown."
Cons: "My screen quite working half way through the flight a continually reset after that. Water was only offered 1 time between meals."
Cons: "Entertainment system nor working properly. 40 minute flight delay due to minor cabin seat malfunction."

Pros: "Very timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"

Pros: "Was departed earlier because we were all on board early"

Cons: "Too much delay"
Pros: "Did not experience food or entertainment"
Pros: "Food, staff and entertainment was good. However, the touch screen on one of our systems did not work, and had to use the remote control."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms, and the one on our side got dirty fast. Also, give yourself lots of EXTRA time to get through the airport in Madrid. It takes forever to get out to the gate, and you have to go through Security, Immigration and sometimes a second more intense security (which we did). If you need to get your VAT refund on purchases, add at least ONE hour. 30 minutes to get the approval stamp in one line, and 30 minutes in another line to get your refund."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Cons: "Had to drive 100 miles to catch second leg of trip."

Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Pros: "Trip on time"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had the row to myself and got to stretch out. Great selection of movies. Decent food."
Cons: "One FA seemed visibly annoyed with me; I'm honestly not sure what I did. I am a FA for another airline; didn't identify myself as such but always make sure to not be "that passenger." During two beverage services she did not ask me if I wanted anything but simply looked at me with disdain and sighed loudly. She wasn't rude; just not friendly and I never once saw her smile. She seemed tired and annoyed. I understand that feeling. I've been a FA for 16 years, still junior at my company, but it reminded me how important body language and facial expressions are when we work hospitality and customer service in the public eye. I hope everything is ok with her and I'm sorry if I did something that irritated her. I didn't get her name."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Everyone operated fast and professional"
Pros: "Allowed us to pre-order with our daughter who needed our support."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."
Cons: "The seat was extremely comfortable."
Pros: "No water no food nothing good"
Pros: "It was a reminder again why I never fly United"

Cons: "Delayed for 30 mins due to traffic going in to Boston."
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Charlotte. I am still waiting for it one day later."
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Cons: "The plain was an old model with no personal screens... So boring"
Pros: "modern plane, large overhead bins, comfy seat with adjustable headrest, very good entertainment system"
Cons: "There was a broken restroom on the plane in the main section, so then, they should keep an eye on the remaining restrooms as they get dirtier sooner. Madrid barajas airport is an ordeal, Iberia needs to explain better that passport control happens when you get to terminal 4S on the tram AND then there are TWO more passport controls. then there isn't enough space for people to line up for the various groups, creating friction. Iberia just needs to be more organized."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Service was slow and sparse"
Cons: "Mucho frío y baños muy sucios."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free wifi for economy class"
Pros: "It was IBERIA Flight: -Seating was good--very nice reclining seats. -Flight left and arrived on time.."
Cons: "It was IBERIA Flight: -Video remote did not work well and the touch screen did not work well. -There was no vegetarian option for food--and food was not that good. -There was a check in for Business class but then for actual boarding there was only 1 line and it took almost 30 minutes to Board and we waited in long line. -Maybe the crew did not understand English so well. Thank you for listening."
Pros: "The pilot did an excellent job navigating through rough weather."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess, too many special groups, and then the masses get in and it just becomes a zoo inside the plane. There are so many charges, flying these days is really not better than taking a local bus."
Pros: "Volar con Iberia es sencillo y particularmente buena atención."
Cons: "The right was late in bi ti directions.long limes to check in."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "I was not informed about having to pay for checking my luggage and it did not even showed at the Iberia website when doing my online checking. I had to pay a total of $50, $25 each way, in Madrid. I was never informed of this in Boston or, again, while processing my checking using Iberia’s website."
Pros: "On time, check-in fine if you allow plenty of time, leg room good,"
Cons: "Choice of movies, food mediocre"
Pros: "Crew arranged to change seats so my left leg had an aisle."
Cons: "Boarding by groups was not followed, no one to control them, just a rush to gate. No discipline by Iberia. Reserved a seat on aisle of 3 seats side section so my left leg could stretch out after surgery but they changed aircraft type w/ only 2 seats on side without notification, so my right leg had the aisle."
Pros: "Very comfortable. Service good"
Pros: "Smooth travels , good on board service , clear directions , clean"
Cons: "No negative complaints"
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning was done in a fast and orderly fashion. Crew members were polite and services were done in a coordinated manner. The food quality and quantity was good. The entertainment system and availability of options was very good. Seats were spacious and the blanket provided was very nice."
Pros: "I hate flying with a burning passion, however this 8hr flight back home was more than comfortable! I mean literally, the seats, the entertainment, the cabin crew, even the food (which to my surprise wasn’t as bad as other airlines). The fact that I’m writing this review right now just shows how great of a flight it was! I had no passenger(s) beside me, and it was all around just great!"
Cons: "The ETA of the time fluctuated dramatically, first it said that we will board at 11:40, and then it changed to 11:25 and then we did not board until 11:50, and the flight took off delayed, as well."
Cons: "Sits are too tight. Honestly impossible to be comfortable"
Pros: "Food, Entertainment was state of the art for airlines that is, wine and beer available as choices"
Cons: "No so friendly staff but OK, I've noticed other major airlines trying a little harder. but it was OK. It was difficult changing seat assignments and checking in online,"
Pros: "Little be more leg space"
Pros: "Staff was amazing!"
Cons: "Seats are very small and leg room is non-existent."
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go, on time. Reasonably comfortable."
Pros: "After explaining to the woman that I would like yogurt or something in the box one of the attendants offered me her food and warmed it up"

Pros: "Great and on time"
Cons: "Nothing all good"
Pros: "clean, good entertainment services, and service from crew"
Cons: "delayed start, very cold temp. during flight"
Cons: "Tray table had mold growing on it. And Iberia airlines operated flight masked as British airways"
Cons: "The plane was an Airbus 330. I'm 6'2" and was uncomfortable in the seat for 7 1/2 hours. My knees hit the seat in front, and later the person there reclined to make things even worse. Since I couldn't slouch, my head was far above the seat back. I realize airlines are squeezing space and this trend will continue. It's become an accessibility problem for me."
Pros: "Nice plane an movies"
Cons: "The lost my luggage"
Pros: "goed attention in Iberia A320 600 and very wide"
Pros: "Entertainment was nice and the rise was very smooth."
Pros: "Took forever to board. Had to take a bus to plane. Last on, no overhead space."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Absolutely everything. I paid for a seat only to get bumped to the very back of the plane. I waited in line for 30 plus minutes to talk to a gate agent who just ignored everyone in line. Their service is worse than United. You get what you pay for. I will never fly with these clowns again. And I want my $33 back for the seat I didn't get!!!!!"
Pros: "Spaciousness of plane"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo! The stewardess in business class was very rude. The food could be less starchy."
Pros: "Very nice flight"
Cons: "Salad and dressing was frozen"
Pros: "Absolutely awesome, thanks for an excellent flight"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "I was not allowed to check in online, so I had to go to the airport early to check in. Despite purchasing my flight months prior, and arriving at the airport with plenty of time to to check in, I was told that I was going to be bumped from my flight because it was overbooked, which would mean that I would miss my international connection. After waiting for everyone else to board on a tiny flight, there suddenly was a seat available and they let me board, but they managed to not put my bag on the flight, which means I have no luggage. Lastly, despite checking in more than 7 hours ahead of time for the international flight, I was given a middle seat and was told that I would have to pay $40 if I wanted to switch to an aisle/window. The middle seat was cramped and uncomfortable, particularly for 8 hours (after 7 hours of connections and waiting in airports). UGH."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Crew and service personnel were rude, Food was bad, entertainment was none existent! Very long flight without entertainment and rude service"
Pros: "The food and the service"
Cons: "The length of the trip"
Pros: "Boarding is quick and easy. Seating is comfortable enough for a one hour flight."
Cons: "No free beverage service . Snacks and drinks cart is wheeled through, but no one buys on such a short trip."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not really an Iberia issue but Barajas airport needs to fix this. The queues for Passport checks were completely unruly - no single lines, the dividers were left wide rather than keeping people single file, people were then jockeying for position to get through- because most were now risking missing their flight, tempers flared. Everyone was angry. A very unpleasant airport experience. Which certainly lends itself to an unpleasant flight experience. People were so worked up the tension was palpable. A problem easily fixed, if only there was some care. The passport check attendants moved at a snails pace. It felt deliberate. In these trying times, I was not impressed."
Pros: "great service and nice flight. great pilots and safe trip."
Pros: "Extremely professional, capable, friendly staff. Very good food. Great selection of films. Comfortable seating."
Pros: "It was very slow beginning with taxing to the airport and then disembarking. We stood for a very long time before the door opened. Probably the delay getting to a stop when in the taxi mode was due to the airport crowdedness and not the airlines fault."
Cons: "Stewards keep trying to speak in Spanish to you. Every time again you have to ask to repeat in English."
Pros: "First meal was pretty good (chicken, red sauce, rice). Snack before landing was very sugar heavy with bad lunch meat and weak bread."
Cons: "Very poor customer service at Iberia check in combined with a very large airport with no info on my receipt from Kayak telling me which terminal I was in resulted in needing a full three hours to get from arriving at the airport to getting to my gate. Long line to check in and the person checking me in told me I could not check hiking pools. I asked twice because I thought I couldn't carry them on. I waited in line for the security check and they told me I couldn't carry on my pools. Went back to check in and a person managing the line told me to go to a check in desk at the end. I waited there for 15 minutes and then when he finished with the family he was helping he told me he was on break and walked away. Went back to the woman that told me to go to him, she offered no apology and told me to wait back in the check in line. I then needed help to get back in the security line because my pass wouldn't scan, then had to take a tram to get to the correct gate (this is after taking a subway and then a shuttle bus to get to the right terminal). It is very unlikely I will fly Iberia again. The night before it took almost one hour for them to get luggage off the plan on a small local flight. Boarding both to and from Madrid was also disorganized and no one at the desk ensured that only people in a given boarding group were in line. Another source of frustration is that this was booked through Finnish air (code share?) so I could not check in on line or choose my seats."
Cons: "I got fever after I boarded the flight. After the lunch/dinner , probably 30 mins after it I asked for Hot water or some hot tea as I was feeling cold. Both the flight attendants told me the service is closed. If this is your hospitality, ba**s to you from next time."
Pros: "The food was decent, and we arrived in Boston in time."
Cons: "The 8 hour flight had no entertainment. There were screens but the movie system was not working. Furthermore, there was never an announcement over the intercom about it nor did the airline apologize in any sort of way. I had to ask the staff what was going on. But the airline/staff just swept it under the rug. I will avoid Iberia flights from now on."
Pros: "Entertainment was the best part"
Cons: "Service was okay. Could have used one more flight attendant on staff. Response time was slow."
Cons: "The entertainment cost money for the flight and the transfer procedure for luggage in Boston was unclear and poorly organized. One of our bags was lost."
