Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Check in took a very long time. Food was not great. Bathrooms were not cleaned during flight and quite disgusting."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice!"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Loved the retrofitting work done on the 777-200 for atmosphere and head room. The flight crew were among the most accommodating I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Hanging flown on several wide bodied aircraft, it’s been my experience that the A330 has a much better coach experience than the 777 aircraft models. For me, it’s a matter of legroom. Fortunately, I didn’t have anyone next to me on the flight and was able to spread out a bit (I’m 6’5”!!) My only other complaint was that while this was booked as an Iberia flight, the flights were all serviced by American Airlines. Check-in, seat selection were all handled by American. It was a little confusing in the online check-in process, because for months, the AA app wouldn’t recognize anything but the return legs of the trip using the record locator provided by Expedia."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "There was a terrible stench, like that of a dead animal, near where we sat that did not let us enjoy the flight. The seats were too crowded."
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: "In time boarding"
Cons: "Free refreshments. Early travelers need at least coffee or tea. Especially when they have connecting flights and no time to stop and get a proper meal."
Pros: "Spacious plane."
Cons: "All processed food. GMO’s. No organic options."
Pros: "Perks of being emerald"
Cons: "Kayak did not send me my booking reference in the email. kayak has no customer service number"
Pros: "Never again Vueling"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, pleasant staff, good ent. good wifi and none of that loud chit chat through the flight like tha American companies."
Cons: "The only thing I was a bit disappointed was with the meal. I don’t eat red meat and requested it theough the website, but nithing special was arranged and I ended up eating pasta. Pasta is fine and I love it, but people that don’t eat meat need to have vegetables added to their meals, or at least an egg. And for breakfast the only option was a ham and cheese sandwich, so I didn’t eat."
Pros: "Excellent service , good food . Ahead of time flight"
Pros: "Some good films to watch"
Cons: "Terrible seats mediocre food our tickets said Iberia but it was actually its low-cost version Level"
Cons: "The whole experience of missing my connecting flight due to Iberia's delay. When we deplaned they gave us Express Connection envelopes and told us to run to our gate - 21 minutes away, a passport and a security checkpoint along the way... this is after a red eye... facing an 11 hour delay before my next flight and a voucher to McDonald's - really????"
Pros: "OTP, the plane was modern, high load factor, which means that this flight is doing good. The wifi was also good,"
Cons: "Only 4 bathrooms for the whole economy and premium economy classes and only at the center of the plane. No snacks between dinner and breakfast."
Cons: "No legroom, plane too warm, movies were unedited, but most of all we missed our connection and there wasn't even an apology, or any compensation. We missed the main event of our trip and were very disappointed. There was only 45 minutes scheduled between the two flights--in which you had to traverse the huge Madrid airport (train), and go through customs and security again. We were 5 minutes late to the gate--after being told in Miami they would hold the plane for us."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding"
Pros: "The AA Tampa crew need to train the IB crew on customer service"
Cons: "dirty bathrooms, little space, the crew seemed tired and a"
Pros: "Nothing in particular. Very standard."
Cons: "Before boarding, crew member had each of us throw our carry on luggage through a hole in the wall (no, they didn't help), down a chute (yeah, a slide... not a motorized belt or anything), watching our luggage hit the ones below. No one was below to catch them, and we saw them slamming into each other, some falling on the ground. Highly disturbing!"
Pros: "New plne, service from American Airlines was good news friendly."
Cons: "Half way through the flight my screen stopped working"
Cons: "It's ridiculous in 2 hours flight even a glass of the water we don't get ... and in the flight Madrid to Miami all flight they don't give a bottle the water ... please need keep the people hidratate in the flight"
Cons: "It was hot in there and the WiFi wasn’t working Besides that it was good"

Pros: "Clean plane, pleasant staff, excellent movie selection. food better than most."
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: "The flight on time. Clean nice."
Cons: "Iberia's only thing is that airplanes don't have enough leg space"
Pros: "Entertainment was great, great food! You can't beat the price of the ticket."
Cons: "When I arrived I was greeted by a "what up." Instead of a professional "Hello." The man who helped me at MIA was rude and threw my passport in my face when he told me I needed a return ticket. After I booked another ticket for return.. I presented myself to another counter staff."
Cons: "They lost our four bags. Three were found two days later. One bag we never saw again on vacation so had to buy a fourth of the stuff a family of four had to survive in Europe for a month. Bag was eventually found and sent to our home in US. Iberia had connecting flight to Berlin so close to arrival in Madrid that we barely made it on flight and bags never did. We will never fly iberia again."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "I think they should offer complementary water"
Pros: "Fast boarding."

Cons: "Could be perfect if the service in the flight was better"
Pros: "I like that it was a plane not so big, and there was more space between seats (more leg room) than in similar flights overseas in British Airways planes; the crew was always very friendly and the entertainment very good, lots of good movies to chose from!"
Cons: "The only thing I really did not like of this flight was that it was delayed For about three hours, which affected my plans in the arrival destination"
Pros: "Flight time and efficiency was fine."
Cons: "BA doesn't give food. Must purchase... No problem!! BA doesn't accept USA or China CC or debit. I was starving! After using on earlier flight, I knew I could use Apple Pay. Old, dumb, inconsiderate, rude flight attendant wouldn't even attempt trying alternative payment. She humiliated me. I was uncomfortable, embarrassed, hungry, and furious the entire flight. Never ever again! British Airways is incompetent!"
Pros: "The flight was nice, take off and landing went very smoothly, small turbulences on the way but nothing serious. Flight was on time as a result."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable specially during almost 12 hour flight. Though I picked my seat when getting my boarding pass, they changed it in the end."
Pros: "I liked their service and warm nature of the staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed one hour and 23 minutes so that affected my connection from LA to SFO. My bag couldn't reach back to SFO and I had to run to catch my flight in LA after a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "Cabin crew very unhelpful and unfriendly. Food terrible. Entertainment very lackluster and obscure."
Pros: "Confirt of plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight when in runway, had to return to the terminal..."
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: "Great entertainment set, neat reclining seats and nice crew."
Cons: "Plane departed early effectively leaving my luggage and vacation. Why did we leave gate 10 minutes early?"
Pros: "Love the individual screen on each seat."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable compared to Emirates and other US Airlines."
Cons: "Crew only came around during service time. More choices on Food"
Pros: "1. Crew and food 2. Getting rebate of $118 for not getting the outward pre-booked seats. 3. When the plane doors closed on our return trip, we asked the crew about the empty pre-booked seats and they allowed us to move. We really should get a rebate for this leg since we were put in the wrong seats."
Cons: "1. Paying $236 for pre-booked seats and not getting them 2. Trays which collapse when drinks put on them and having to eat on a tray when plane is hitting turbulence. 3. Seat light not working 4. Horrible Boarding process in Heathrow and overcrowded waiting area in both Manchester and Heathrow terminals. 5. Being assigned other seats on return trip despite calling 2 weeks before to confirm we had the pre-booked seats. 6. Phone calls prior to check in and talks at check in could not resolve the seat issues. One excuse at check in was poor exchange of data between Iberia and BA. but we booked the advanced seating via BA website."
Pros: "Movies on demand, and entertainment."
Cons: "The outbound flight a man part of the aircrew (Iberia) was rude to some of the customers."
Pros: "Everything very nice"
