Cons: "BED, DRINKS"
Pros: "The airport it's very nice and clean.."

Pros: "Yes, in general I like American Airlines so I was happy with flight in general"
Cons: "announcement in English hard to understand"
Pros: "The good"
Cons: "The meal made me sick."
Cons: "Something that was unpleasant was if someone spoke through the announcement system it would be very loud through the headphones if someone is listening to a movie or music"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible. We could not get anyone to confirm a gate, then we were delayed and finally bused into the middle of the tarmac for boarding. A lack of information was extremely stressful and unsatisfying."
Cons: "food was about the worst I have seen (with special mention to the coffee served as it was def the worst even for airplanes standards) could not check in online ( web would not allow me)"
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: "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: "Staff was nice. Seat was standard."
Cons: "Small movie selection."
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude."
Cons: "I booked this through Finnair and it was a British Airways code share .I was unable to get the record locator for BA and could not check in prior to getting to the airport ."
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: "This is not my first experience with Finnair flight and I'm very pleased with a consistency of a good service, high professionalism and I will recommend this airline to all my friends."
Pros: "I liked the price."
Cons: "It's all crammed but given the price I can't complain"
Pros: "Updated gate changes sent to phone was a life saver!"
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: "Not bad as cross-ocean flights go, but cramped. The seats (and the available room per person) are what would be considered normal nowadays, but I remember flying thirty years ago. The crew was very pleasant and snacks were served (and appreciated), but didn't make up for the cramped conditions."
Pros: "The meeting I was attending in NY got postponed so I lost the full 1/2 return ticket. Nothing I could do, all at once all kinds of small text appear in big and over 400 $ was lost. This is the last time I book with Kayak. Better pay a bit more directly with the airline but do not have a deal like the Kayak deal. So please remove from all your sites. Thank you VV"
Cons: "Passengers changing seats around."
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: "Flights were on BA not Finnair"
Cons: "Ba website did not work properly."
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."
Cons: "Ingen underhållning ingen flyginformation otrevlig personal jag kommer inte att flyga Finnair igen. Jag och alla andra fick sitta att stirra på väggen framför oss i 7timmar den spanska personalen ska inte jobba för ett nordiskt flygbolag fy fan Med vänlig hälsning Benny"
Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "If I'm paying for a trans-atlantic flight (at a fee of $1,000), I shouldn't be stuck on a plane that is used for domestic flights,and thus does not have the space nor the comfort of a larger plane. And, if this flight is not going to offer the amenities accustomed to a typical trans-atlantic flight (such as in-seat TV), then the price should be substantially cheaper. I will be complaining to the airline itself for this, and may not fly this airline again."
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: "Video and radio were bad."
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."
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: "The only good thing was we landed early think that was more to do with the wind though!!!"
Cons: "They rebooked us all at the gate and split people up. So boarding was a nightmare without anyone being friendly. The plane was the oldest plane I have seen they had one tv for the plane and the whole section I was sat in didn't have volume that worked and they basically said too bad. The crew didn't respond to any lights that were put on they put their head down and scooted past you. I have been flying to and from USA to UK for 15 years worse flight."
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."
Cons: "Dealyed - One hour"
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: "I was so bummed about having a middle seat, but it really wasn't that bad! The crew did a great job of explaining which custom forms needed to be filled out in advance. I like that they did this early in the flight so I could relax and sleep the rest of the time."
Cons: "I asked for a eye mask and socks and it was never provided, although the toothbrush kit said I could ask for it if needed. I didn't like that the TV controls were on the arm rest - the person next to me kept putting him arm on mine and my movies kept starting from the beginning over and over again! Not the fault of the airline, but small annoyance."
Pros: "Boarded on time, flight crew was friendly, nice amenities like pillows, headphones and blankets."
Cons: "The food was ok could be better and WiFi didn’t work."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was excellent.My only complaint was as we were sitting in row 54 the crew made too much noise during sleeping time.Other than that they were very helpful and very nice.It was our first time flying Iberia.It was very enjoyable.I will be happy to recommend bthem."
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: "Great food on this long haul flight. Business class lounge was nice. On time flight."
Cons: "Very slow & chaotic boarding process."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about Iberia"
Cons: "I paid extra to book early so I could be assure of a seat with a view and so I could sit with my husband. Iberia charged my credit card 55.00 for the service and then, without my knowledge Iberia changed my seats and denied charging me extra. I have papers to prove my claim and will dispute the charges with my credit card company. The communication between flight attendants and passengers was horrible. Those of us who had not eaten yet (about half the plane in economy seating) watched the flight attendants bring out extra bread to all of the other economy passengers who had already received their meals, while we, who had not eaten yet, watched. My husband inquired if we were also receiving meals. He was told that everyone would eventually receive a meal. Horrible customer service, the worst ever. Later, before landing the pilot cancelled beverage and snack service because of possible weather conditions but never put the seat belt sign on until we began our decent. Nothing made any sense. It was like a crazy person was in charge. I would not trust Iberia to take me anywhere in the future."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."
Pros: "Bumped up to better seats than we paid for. More space mkes a long ride easier."
Pros: "Movie selection. Decent room in each seat. 2x4x2 setup is nice."
Cons: "Bad service. Attitude from flight attendants. Food just okay."
Pros: "It was a regular flight Seats worked entertainment worked Staff did their jobs without many smiles but they did it"
Cons: "staff was somewhat distracted doing their duty but not attuned to peoples needs I wanted more water Had to ask twice OH I forgot was the answer I got Otherwise all was fine"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "-Uncomfortable seats. -Old plane-- broken baggage door produced delay of over an hour. Zero accommodations were made for us to make our connecting flight at London Heathrow, scheduled for 2 hours from the anticipated arrival time. We barely made it to the gate in time after going through security, etc."
Cons: "Had to take a flight to New York 2 days later, then drive back home"
Pros: "This trip would have been another good experience for me flying with Iberia if it wasn't for the man that was sitting behind me. He didn't want me to recline my seat because he wanted to cross his legs... I told him that the guy in front of me had his seat reclined all the way and I wanted (sort of needed) to do the same, then he got aggressive with verbal abuse, called me names and he punched my seat. So I called the flight attendant and told her about the incident. She was nice and calm and told the man in a very respectful way that I wasn't doing anything wrong and he should not behave in an aggressive manner, etc. The man kept mumbling insults addressed to me while talking to his wife and making sure I was hearing it.... And he kept kicking my seat every now and then, and made a fuss every time he went to the toilet. He really ruined my flight experience to New York."
Pros: "Comfortable flight good crew and entertainment"
Pros: "Lunch meal was good. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was VERY hot and uncomfortable! Seats were very cramped and uncomfortable. Not at all an enjoyable experience. Flight was delayed and passengers were bussed to another aircraft for outside boarding. Connecting in New York was very rushed and stressful due to the delay."
Pros: "Aircraft is comfortable (A340-600)"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude."
Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment system. The food was good also and, the flight attendants."
Cons: "The legroom was not that good, but it was ok. Overall it was ok"
Pros: "Entertainment package consisting of up-to-date TV shows/ series and movies that have recently been released. The time passed by faster than expected with this. The meal plan was better than some restaurants. With Meatballs being the main course followed by rice & veggies and finished with the sugar cake."
Cons: "Having the seat by the bathroom. Even though passengers were instructed not to form a line, they did and were encroaching in my personal space for the majority of the flight. Though this is not an airline issue, it did effect the comfort of the 4.6hr flight."
Cons: "The stewardess spilled coffee on my leg and didnt apologize. then after bumped me in the head with her elbow and did not apologize."
Cons: "Very hard to get any information about connective flights. I had 1 hour between the flights and I asked the assistant at the passport control to help me to get through, she said that everyone needs to stay in the same line. I pushed myself through, which I never do, and run all the way to the gate, and hardly made my flight. It is very hard to get any information because most employees don't speak English. I will never fly with Iberia again. I would rather pay more and fly with another company. I was very upset about my flying experience."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 hours. No apologies. Nothing. Interesting thing: NYC to Madrid, 3 hours late, missed connection, no apologies., nothing One week later: Madrid to NYC: 3 hours late, no apologies, nothing. IBERIA AIRLINES: Never again!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. They need to load back to front."

Cons: "I really enjoy flying in your airline"
Pros: "Iberia has started upgrading their planes and this one was quite comfortable for a long flight with good legroom and comfortable seats."
Cons: "We boarded 20 minutes late with no explanation, then took off another 30 minutes late with no explanation or communication at all. The flight attendants were not friendly or helpful. The food was mediocre. Our entertainment system was not working at all for half the flight, they reset it about four times to get it working. Once it was working, my husband's screen was not responding at all. Flight was smooth and pilots made up some time in the air which was appreciated."
Pros: "Not enough vegetarian meals."
Cons: "my bag was lost"
Pros: "We like the food, the entretenment service, the airplane was new and flight attendants was very polite !!!"
Pros: "Seating was very comfortable. Good food and beverages. Was offered beer and wine as well with our meal. Extensive selection of entertainment at seat."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing. No overhead signs to indicate boarding groups. Announcements were hard to hear. Stewards were hard to contact mid-flight to ask for water to drink. A long flight, and it would have been nice to have more available."
Cons: "The customer service people were the least sympathetic and least helpful people I have ever met. They did nothing to accommodate us."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and service was great. Food good and had a great selection of movies. Thanks."
Pros: "The flight attendants are rude, the food is disgusting, and their customer service is non existent. My husband left his iPad on the plane, and realized as soon as we stepped off, but they refused to let us retrieve it. Instead, they went us through this ridiculous online process, where they determined they found the iPad, but "rejected our request to have it returned"!!!!!! The absolute worst!!"
Pros: "The staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "We ended up flying to Paris on Air France because it was the only flight left after RAM screwed us over. Cost me $1800 dollars and no chance to retrieve my money back unless someone sends me a letter saying someone screwed up. Need help please!"
Pros: "Didn't happen!"
Pros: "Very good food overall. Picking up utensils a little slow. Good coffee. Lavatories were accessible at all times. I was able to get aisle seat without a hassle. Good movie selection l. Movie quality itself was disappointing l."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit late."
Cons: "Waiting for luggage at JFK."
Pros: "Thought the crew did a good job."
Cons: "3 people in my group; not seated together; given different boarding groups; I was TSA pre-check, they weren't. Food was horrible. Plane was cramped and DIRTY. In flight entertainment useless since small screen was too far away for me to see. Despite Iberia flight number, this was an American Airlines plane and crew."
Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "We wasted 20 min. with the checkin machine. It should be written somewhere that if you fly to the US, you have to go to the traditional check in line. After entering all the info, the machine crashed. It was frustrating."
Pros: "My husband has trouble on planes due to his health. This flight was the most comfortable we have been on. My husband slept on the plane for the first time. We travel to Europe once a year and will be looking for this flight. Thank you!"

Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Too cold on plane"
Cons: "Nothing, it was better than most other airlines"
Cons: "We were not able to board the plane. We left our morning flight from Madrid on time and arrived as expected. We hurried through the airport and went exactly where we were directed. Despite this, the gates closed on us while we were running to the gate. TAP sold us a service they could not provide."
Pros: "Extremely friendly flight crews, never hesitate to help with a smile on their face!"
Cons: "The layover situation needs to be improved. When you give 50 minutes, there really isn’t enough time to deplane, get through the check point, and make it to the terminal. We were told to run like animals in the airport in order to not miss the flight."
Cons: "Been on schedule"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive, there was a delay to boarding and departure but they were very apologetic about it. Service was attentive on the plane and bags promptly delivered at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "I upgraded at the airport to Executive class, which is really a bit of a scam to be honest. It’s just the first two rows of the plane and the middle seat kept free... the seats were no different to economy. Not worth the 109€ upgrade fee."
Pros: "crew was so very helpful. Food was surprisingly good"
Pros: "Punctuality, service and confort"
Pros: "Flight crew were nice plane arrived safely"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you. I paid for extra leg room and then on way over made me pay to check bag (which was supposed to be free) and way back switched planes so never got extra room and had to pay for bag as well and now have to fight for my money back. I don’t like the feeling of having to always pay. If you want people to not carry on so much stop charging (especially on international flights) to check bags."
Pros: "Easy smooth transaction"
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the food was better than I expected."
Cons: "Bags restrictions without us knowing. Delayed flight but we still manage to get to our destination on time. The same did not happen before where I had to wait until 2am for my tap flight that was supposed to leave at 11:30pm. I have been flighting TAP for many years now and it used to be one of my favorite airlines. No longer is the case. Over the years there has been a decline on service."
Pros: "Entertainment and seat space were great."
Cons: "They somehow managed to lose the entire flights luggage"
Pros: "Food was above average"
Cons: "Wasn't told that baggage wasn't included in my fee. Had to pay 170 Euros at the airport to check our two bags. Really really frustrating, and beyond an exorbitant price to charge for bags..."
Cons: "TV didn't work. A female attendant made me store my hat but didn't make a male passenger."
Cons: "The marked delay"
Cons: "Boarding gate too small. Suoer overcrowded"
Cons: "Two TAP flights today. Both flights delayed more than an hour."
Cons: "Lost luggage. Late arrival. Had to run."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to eat, not even paying."
Pros: "There wasn't anything special to like compares to other good airlines. I would say crews attitudes and foods were alright."
Cons: "Doesn't have a USB cable to charge the phone and there were no perfume or toothbrush for the long journey. Also no apple juice."
Pros: "Very friendly personnel at gate."
Cons: "Arrogant crew. Hid in galley behind curtain for most of the flight. For several hours not even the offer of a cup of water! No possibility to charge electronics in economy class. Charge of $ 75.00 for first bag on an international flight?!? We're not talking about a budget airline, but THE airline of Portugal!"
Cons: "Plane too small and doesn’t have the thing to charge my phone"
Cons: "Purchased tickets that included one bag each for our international flight. But at ckeckin they "couldn't find it in the computer", so charged 45 Euro ($50) per bag. The checkin lady was quite distraught about this, but charge they did. In our reservation there is no indication of what fare level (they have about five) has been purchased. Beware!"
Cons: "Same as inbound flight"
Cons: "No USB port"
Pros: "Fast boarding. TAP crew was nice as always."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing cold, all 8 hours. There seems to be no balance for the cabin's temperature in these long flights. Make sure you have a jacket and a blanket."
Cons: "Some delays at the airport but service is excellent."
Pros: "Check in app"
Cons: "Non-reclining seats"
Pros: "Good staff, Quick flight, Easy flight no problems. The biscuits are tasty."
Cons: "Seats need an inch or two more leg room for me, the biscuits they gave out were tasty but would of been really nice to have a sandwhich. But that's air travel these days. There was a slight problem with the air craft before we took off. Air conditioning was off and the door were closed while we sat there for 15 mins. They kept us well informed though, not the end of the world."
Pros: "Seats were big and comfortable with lots of leg room."
Cons: "No entertainment on first 3 hr intra-Europe flight. Food was not good."
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant, extremely helpful and stylish (the airline's choice for attire is clean with great usage of Portugal's national colors). Thank you for the enjoyable ride home."
Pros: "Entertainment! Loved having such a wide selection of things to watch on the screen at my seat. Such a nice luxury to be able to watch a movie, a show, check the status of the flight/plane/distance/time/map, and more."
Cons: "The food wasn't that appetizing. It actually gave me upset stomach for the rest of the flight. I was in the bathroom 3x during the flight and I usually don't use the restroom more than once during any given flight. I didn't like that when asking for a drink of water, they only give a half full cup of room-temperature water. On an 8 hour flight, I get dehydrated and could drink 2 water bottles alone. I don't like to be a nuisance to the attendants so I only asked for water twice. I just wish they would provide small personal bottles per customer. I also have never flown on TAP before so I wasn't aware of anything like how to call an attendant using the touch-screen or even that watching movies was free. It should be said over the intercom at the beginning of the flight."
Pros: "Great service on board, very attentive crew. Great food (Yes, it was good), modern aircraft."
Cons: "The boarding process at Terminal could be easier and simpler. They told us to set up lines way before the actual call."
Pros: "There was one male steward who was not friendly at all.....I felt he was giving me bad looks....I felt uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very good regional airline; good service; luggage arrived!"
Pros: "La atención del personal es bueno."
Cons: "Los asientos no se pueden reclinar, muy duros."
Pros: "I had a flight from Madrid --> Lisbon airport with a final connection from Lisbon --> NYC JFK and we were delayed in Madrid therefore arriving at boarding time of our other flight in Lisbon. The crew was so professional and prepared that when we landed in Lisbon there was a bus that brought about 25 of us who were connecting with final destination to JFK to the closest door to go through passport control and board onto our flight to JFK that they held for a good 30-45 minutes until all of us made our connection. Very professional and organized. Much appreciated that I didn't miss my final connection! Love flying TAP and will continue to do so!"
Pros: "Professional and comfortable"
Cons: "TAP is the worst. I"d rather walk than book a flight with them."
Cons: "Wait for boarding"
Pros: "Andrera Araijo was extremely friendly, attentive and energetic. She smiled through out the entire flight. Whether she was attending to me or a fellow passenger it was all smiles. She definitely made smile. God bless you Andrera!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, seats recline nicely, the flight was not full so there was room to move. AC power under the seats, plus an USB charger in every seat"
Cons: "The seats, just were not comfortable enough for that long of a flight."
Cons: "bad checkin. just trying to get more money for baggage.."
Pros: "Their system updates you with messages on gate changes and times. Staff is very friendly and professional. Planes are clean and seem well maintained."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in desk people in Lisbon were very obnoxious and rude."
Pros: "Great planes. Very professional and helpful staff. Lots of leg room"
Pros: "Smooth travel"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Too long ago!"
Pros: "Basically what you would expect from a budget airline flight."
Pros: "Overall plane stability"
Cons: "No delays, better food, updated plane"
Cons: "seat 53d has sound it the screen broken personal spot light also out of order everything is old"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "No USB outlets"
Pros: "They give you free pillows and blankets."
Cons: "First, this airlines charges up to $150 for the first checked bag. They don’t even inform you of this at any moment while purchasing you ticket. You find this out when you get to the airport. Second, they charge you for everything in this flight. They say the entertainment is complementary, but you have to pay for headphones. On the shorter flights, they even charge you for water!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I was ticketed on AirFrance/Delta, but I guess they are a part of Skyteam and the plane was Air Europa Old decrepit aircraft, that had years of accumulated dirt between seats and such No personal TV screens Food was as bad as it gets for the snack, though the main meal was as they all are except more frugal. Headphones were available for 3 euros- never had that occur on an international flight. I will always ask if my ticket includes Air Europa as an operator and avoid them if that is the case"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "It was a long flight and for a period of 3 hours if you wanted anything to drink you needed to go look for it. They should have come around with water every 2 hours is my suggestion"
Pros: "I couldn’t have wished for a smoother flight for both ‘legs’."
Cons: "Again, the entertainment offering could be better for the translatantic flight."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "cramped chairs and an attached box under my seat limiting foot space. Also i didn't like having to plug into their wifi and pay a fee.so i didn't use it. couldn't figure it out either since my phone had been stolen at the MAD airport and all I had was a kindle fire."
Cons: "The plane has no entertainment , we had to download an app. That should work once on the air. It didn’t , the flight attendant said it was due to many passengers using it at the same time"
Cons: "A low cost company trying to compete with bigger company and prices too high for what you got."
Pros: "At least this A330 had seat-back IFE unlike another A330 I've flown with AirEuropa, but the selections are very limited."
Cons: "Limited selection in the IFE."
Pros: "Price paid"
Cons: "Food and drink options were mediocre. Also limited entertainment options..."
Pros: "Crew was great, however boarding could be improved. Too many checks and waiting to board."
Pros: "The crew was helpful. The protracted headrests were nice for sleeping."
Cons: "The planes were pretty antiquated and the seats were hard and uncomfortable. They were no oxygen ports which was troublesome for long 8 hour flights. Lack of fresh air! Only 10kg weight limit for carry on luggage."
Pros: "Relatively on time"
Cons: "Chairs where uncomfortable, food was poor quality."
Pros: "Good service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Every flight was at least an hour delayed. We were insanely late for our connection flight due to a totally unnecessary delay at the first airport. We then SPRINTED across the whole Madrid airport and then when we arrived to second plane was TWO HOURS delayed. The staff always seemed to be working, but was completely inefficient in getting anything done. It took them 20 minutes to respond to our notice (we pressed the air attendant button on our seats) and then told us we couldn't get snacks because they were giving out pizzas, which took another hour. Every single part of our flight was delayed and inefficient... with no reason ever being given. It was pretty miserable overall and I will likely never use Air Europa ever again."
Cons: "Every single person that worked there from front desk to flight attendants were sassy and rude on both my flight there and back."
Pros: "Everything was fine! I slept most of the trip as I was lucky enough to get a window seat. The food was okay and I actually quite liked the red wine I had."
Cons: "Can't complain! As I said for the way there, I would prefer not to have to pay to pre-pick my seats, but we choose the random option and I still got to sit next to my cousin (who I was traveling with) for all 4 flights of our trip."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and courteous. Aircraft and cabin was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was pretty poor with the 2nd "meal" being awful. It's what to expect with a discount airline though. Worst was that a duty free item was pilfered out of checked luggage."
Pros: "Timeliness cleanness food movies"
Cons: "Not on time. Delayed boarding and flight. Was told by customer service on the phone that I would not have to pay for checked luggage from Madrid to Barcelona since I am a tourist....guess what? It was a big fat lie. Had to pay 60 Euros to check me and my daughter's bag!"
Pros: "departure from JFK to Madrid was on time"
Cons: "Comfort is not equivalent with price. Very tight seats. On the way to Madrid no personal entertainment system. On the way back personal entertainment system was very, very lagi, additionally reset itself during movie fief times, and from where I was seating other people had the same issue. Coordination at airport was also not the best after landing at JFK, because we spend almost 50 minutes in airplane waiting for docking."
Pros: "The flight was very affordable and AE offered direct flights both ways (from Miami/Madrid & Madrid/NY)"
Cons: "The food wasn't great. And the flight attendance could've been more outgoing and friendly."
Cons: "Food can be improved"
Pros: "All went well. As above"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The food was good, service was great, flight was on time, and the staff was very helpful."
Pros: "Second flight at least had a tv to watch some low quality movies."

Cons: "Old plane. Poor entertainment. Average food. Average staff."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The entertainment was a little frustrating. The screens were only in the middle section so if you sat on the sides, it was really hard to see. There was also no outlets available on a 7-8 hour flight."
Cons: "Any long flight should have provide wifi for its passengers."
Pros: "The movies I watched"
Cons: "The time it took to board the plane- we also had depressed seats. I will never fly air Europa again."
Pros: "On time. Plane well kept. Staff friendly and efficient. And the food was surprisingly tasty."
Cons: "No individual videos. No power outlets at your seat"
Cons: "They closed the boarding doors early and I ran thru the entire airport to get there and they wouldn't let me on because my flight was delayed. THE WORST"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours and I've missed very important meeting and event I had to attend to In NYC!"
Cons: "No entertainment for long flight except mr bean. The way to Madrid was much more enjoyable. Same airline. Oh and wifi=30$ for 50 MB. I use that in 2 min so way too little data with each package."
Cons: "Impossible to confirm flight online. Seat assignments split us up, including our children When we were finally able to be seated together it was 3 in last row an one in 2nd to last where attendants kept bumping into seats, making noise etc. 9 year old son's monitor didn't work after we bought headset. Took many hours and multiple requests for assistance and refund. Crew left 9 year old son off of flight manifest resulting in his detainment by homeland security st JFK."

Cons: "food bad by any standards, clumsy stewardess spilling drinks, very long boarding, very poor entertainment choices"
Pros: "2 fligts with aireuropa. Both very different: first was in a vey comfortable plane with a lot of space but a poor service from flight attendants. In the second the plane was more uncomfortable, Seats were tight but service was fair. Both with no delayes and fine service at the airport."
Cons: "Delayed flight and super old airplane."
Pros: "First of all the flight was delayed 3 hours due to plane arriving late from London. Once in the plane we had to wait another hour and a half. The plane is as old as any transatlantic plane can be, small seats, no personal entertainment, food was poor. Never flying with them again."
Pros: "The crew members were very accommodating"
Pros: "Seats were slightly more comfortable than Ryanair."
Cons: "Not making us bounce between gates 3 times because they didn't know where the plane was going."
Cons: "Was told I needed to check my bag when there was plenty of overhead space once we boarded the plane. The entire zone system seems to be fake, as they boarded zone 1 and then went to all zones, skipping 2 & 3."
Pros: "Seats comfy plenty of room"
Cons: "The delay which was no fault of Vueling"
Cons: "Boarding process"

Pros: "The flight actually got me to my destination"
Cons: "I asked for priority boarding at the counter since I’m pregnant which they agreed to. They advised me to wait for the priority announcement to board first. That did not happen. They simply let everyone on at once causing a stampede. Flight was delayed. Flight had no AC until almost take off. Smallest amount of legroom I’ve ever had in my life."
Pros: "Clean, nice crew"

Cons: "Vueling agents gave 6 different conflicting times for the delay"

Cons: "No billows at the chairs"
Pros: "The flight space"
Cons: "No entertainment which make the trip so boring"
Cons: "A bus ride is more comfortable than a vueling flight"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else. This was the worst plane experience ever. The flight was super super delayed (as were several other Vueling flights) and we stood in the bag drop line for over 2 hours because there was no system and everyone was confused. Then when we finally got through they updated the flight status every 10 min confusing everyone cause the time kept changing and no one knew what was going on. Then they finally posted the gate and we had to run to the other side of the airport and then they delayed the flight again so it was over 3 1/2 hours delayed In the end. Then boarding was a mess and the plane itself was pitiful for how expensive that flight was. This is never going to be a company of choice for me. Definitely a last resort."
Pros: "The individual tv screens."
Cons: "This is what I noticed while checking in the last gate before we board. We were singled out with a few other people to be additional screened in questions. When we were done, there were about more than 10 individuals who were waiting to pass the gate and about over 50 waiting in line. We noticed that the European descent individuals with bigger bags were not question and allowed to pass through. We were stop and was informed we have to pay for our luggage. The rep took our credit card and scanned it and when we asked how much she informed us the amount will be appeared in our next statement. How did she not even know?? Lastly, the individual in front of us had the same luggage (if not bigger) and didn’t even have to beck his in!"
Cons: "App info and service poor. Gate closed more than 30 mins before flight while flight was delayed according to the AP status. Would not fly with Vueling again."
Pros: "On time, one carry on and personal item for free onboard, clean - no complaints"
Cons: "It got deleyed i missed a bus because of that. It goy delayed because of a error with some luggage from other flight thatbwas sent to that flight."
Pros: "Although I booked a flight on what I thought was British airways it was some off brand airline: Vueling very disappointing to show up at Gateick to check in at BA and be redirected to the equivalence of Spirit airlines in the USA."
Cons: "It said British airlines and was a vueling airlines flight. I would equivalent this to booking a flight through Kayak on Delta showing up to Delta to check in and being redirected to Spirit airlines!! Completely misleading, just glad I didn’t have to pay for a vag as I would on Spirit. No water, snacks offered pretty bare bone airline!!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after checkin . Trying to get an alternative was futile with no success.Had to drive 1000 km in the end. No announcements made in English. Plese advise how to get a refund."
Pros: "Great value"
Cons: "Your staff was so unfriendly and treated us like some cattle. I have missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight. We were a party of eight and half of us got to go on the 12pm flight and myself my husband and 2 children had to wait! We were told we could get on a 4pm flight and were rebooked for a 9pm flight!! Then they lost all my luggage and when I did get it we only got 2bags! My kids while suitcase went missing for two days! Totally unacceptable! Worse thing is the lack of direction to handle the situation. Their answer was by law were allowed to overbook! Seriously! I know this is true but these airlines should. It be allowed to do that it’s disruptive to people’s lives that have paid money to be on these flights. So our 4day vacation is now down to 3 and of those 3days we spent one day waiting on partial delivery of our luggage!"
Pros: "The boarding and flight was at the right time."
Cons: "The confort is very bad. So small the space for the legs"
Pros: "Nice short flight! Nice crew!"
Cons: "Airport advertised the flight was leaving at 12:10, but our pass said 12:00. We took the advice of the AIRPORT and missed our flight. In addition to missing our flight we had to exit the airport to re-enter and BUY NEW TICKETS for another flight. Would never recommend Vueling or Barcelona Airport to anyone."
Cons: "two adults one infant 3 piece of luggage is $140 euro. So infant bag is $70 euro where as adult is $35. We deserve $35 euro refund."
Cons: "CONVOLUTED BOARDING PROCESS"
Cons: "Everything from the waiting time to boarding"
Pros: "The crew was polite and boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Security at the airport"
Cons: "they left my lugage the delayed the flight for 2 hours, terrible services"
Pros: "Quick and easy all the way."

Cons: "Small sears cattle car"
Pros: "Not really a like or dislike, we did not have food or entertainment on the flight it wasn't long enough."

Pros: "Bag drop was fast, professional. Plane was comfortable, on time."
Cons: "Passengers are the key to make everything bad, they can't queue or simply don't know what is a queue for. Some wear a suit and think that they can just cut the queue to the front, and all the staff just allow that happen. They did not have priority boarding."
Pros: "Flight was cheap"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, then they de boarded at the wrong terminal and for 1hr didn't let us leave the terminal, then we had to go through security to leave the airport. Collosal fail!"
Pros: "Quick trip all went well"
