Pros: "EVERY THING"
Pros: "The seats are wide with leg room, even on a center seat."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online, or at a kiosk, because my reservation couldn't be found. Of course, I did have one, and it took going to a counter to get it straightened out, but only after a loooong wait and then barely making it to the gate in time for boarding. Before a 90-minute delay."
Pros: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Loved the free Direct TV. Perfect for longer flights. Chose no food"
Cons: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Crew didn't enforce the 'upright & locked' in row ahead at landing"
Cons: "Even though the flight was delayed, and I had over an hour before take off, I was not permitted to board. In times past, I have flown American Airlines with no issues, JetBlue was extremely unaccommodating."
Cons: "We had mechanical problems prior to take off. Our flight was delayed for a couple of hours. Once inside the aircraft, we were kept there for an additional 2 1/2 hours before take off. We landed in Fort Lauderdale 5 hours later than the scheduled time. We got home at 5:00 AM. Unexeptable!!!!!!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful."
Pros: "I Enjoy Every Moment In Puerto Rico La Parguera En El Pueblo De Lajas , La Guancha En Ponce, Playa Crashboard En Aguadilla, El Faro En Rincon ,Playa Jobos En Isabela,Balneario De Boquerón En Cabo Rojo Me Encantan Las Playas El Agua Es Tan Clara Y La Arena Blanca ,Las Gente Es Muy Servicial."

Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hrs....they didn't even apologise or explain why."
Pros: "The seats. The Wi-FI. The price of ticket."
Cons: "The delays. No notice. Boarding delayed by 45 minutes. 20 more in bay after doors shut. "We are in 20th position for take-off. Another hour. Arr over 2 hrs. Late. Attendents disappeared for a few hours. Sad."
Cons: "I have never had so much trouble with a website/app as with JetBlue for this trip. Checking in was super stressful, since it was a short layover and I had to go through customs. There were few employees to help when I couldn't print my boarding pass, and when I handed my already checked bag off (it was checked through) without a boarding pass the JetBlue employee was extremely passive aggressive and acted like it was somehow my fault I hadn't been able to get it printed and there had been no one around to ask. The flight crew was highly professional and the flight was good, but I was pretty disappointed by customer service on the ground."
Pros: "More legroom, free wifi, free entertainment choices, unlimited drinks & snacks, on-time and efficient"
Cons: "1) Boarding process was not clear on the ticket or anywhere (really not a big deal). 2) When reading about perks and restrictions after we bought tickets, the company mentions certain "classes" of tickets..i.e. "Blue", "Blue Plus" and "Blue Flex" but since I had already bought our tickets, I had no idea which type of fare we bought, since Jet Blue does not provide that information on your ticket information once purchased."
Cons: "Tv didn't work"
Cons: "It's a shame there are so few options for travel to the caribbean from NYC these days. These carriers are charging entirely too much for a very average experience!!!!"
Pros: "The check in process with Jet Blue is always seamless and quick. Great communication. I enjoyed the free wi-fi and under-the-seat outlets. Also love how refreshments are available to grab at anytime."
Cons: "The sound on the movies, etc. is terrible! And half the time the screens don't work."
Pros: "The people who worked there were professional. The other passengers were nice."
Cons: "The seats, even the upgraded ones, didn't recline sufficiently to let my head drop back. This meant that for a period of four plus hours, I was stuck in an incredibly uncomfortable sitting position -- tilted slightly forward, via the placement of my head. And it also meant that the only way to try to sleep was by pitching forward over the tray, hunched forward in a way that didn't allow me to breathe fully. I tried slouching down, and it didn't help. The way that the lumbar was positioned also pushed me forward. The pillows were too small to lift my head much off the tray. Perhaps it's my height and weight. If I was shorter or taller or thinner, my options might have increased. Regardless, if the airlines are going to squish us together, they might consider how to give us some flexibility with regards to placement of back rests, like we have in cars -- adjustment of lumbar curve."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movie when it was on! I enjoyed the leg room as well! The plane was nice and new and I felt safe!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and I tried to switch flights to get on with my family since the flight was delayed and they wanted to charge me $600. The flight was cold so I purchased a blanket."
Pros: "Under seat outlets for the win."
Cons: "I was all good for an hour into my cross country flight when another passenger randomly took an empty seat in my row. I almost had the traveler's dream: an entire row to stretch out across!"
Cons: "Had to pay for snacks and blanket, which is ridiculous. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Flight was fine, once it departed."
Cons: "I arrived at JFK after 24 hours of travel from Myanmar. My JetBlue flight was delayed 5-1/4 hours. The delay was devastating."
Pros: "Free Wi-fi"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and a major gate change, then sat on runway awaiting takeoff for 30+ mins."
Pros: "One pass through the aisle with drink and snack Never again"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Pros: "Kind crew member."
Pros: "Flight was so delayed car rental was closed seats did not recline therefore quite uncomfortable..."
Cons: "Todo muy bien"
Pros: "Very good price. Very good cabin. Very good crew."
Cons: "No free blankets. Snacks were not appropriate for a 5 to 6 hours flight."
Pros: "The tvs are nice. The selection of snacks the one time they came around was good. I also liked the phone charger ports."
Cons: "They only came around once on our 6 hour trip to offer snacks and drinks. I think a second round should have happened. Also our plane came into the wrong terminal so we had to walk over 20 minutes to the different terminal to get our luggage. They didn't really explain how to do that."
Pros: "Delayed 1.5 hrs, then sat on plane for two hours before being returned to the gate, re-boarded 45 mins later and sat on the plane another hour before finally taking off. We were supposed to leave at 10.40, we didn't leave till around 4."
Cons: "Overheard some of the crew members talking bad and/or making fun of a passenger...in front of other passengers! Also the movies were old."
Pros: "The flight was one of the best domestic flights I have ever taken. Amazingly helpful and courteous cabin crew, excellent customer service, great add-ons like free wifi and snacks. I think I will only be taking jet blue now, especially if the price remains somewhat similar to other carriers. It is simply the best."
Pros: "Nice staff, loved free wifi and tv streaming"
Cons: "Was 1hr late to arrive due to weather"
Cons: "Too cold and noxious fumes prior to take-off which was delayed nearly 2 hours."
Pros: "The snacks were fresh"
Cons: "Several delays, long wait time AFTER we were COMPLETELY boarded, non-communication between staff & passengers regarding WHY we sat on plane for at LEAST an HOUR after boarding, and flight personnel not double checking to make sure that all passengers had something to drink after the snacks were given. JetBlue needs to get it together!!! I will DEFINITELY avoid them in the future!!"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "The crew was rather lazy. It was a long flight. Came through once to offer snacks and drinks then back again immediately to pick up trash when u just received your snacks. Then never offered water or additional items for rest of flight. Of 3 flight atttendants they sent one person to do the final cleanup while others stood around. Waited at gate after boarding for almost 2 hours so the catering truck could replenish the plane so u would think they could be more hospitable since our flight was not full."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours last minute, making my layover 17 hours long. The delay caused my car rental place to give away my reservation so I had to wait an additional 2.5 hours to get a rental car. The primary reason for my travel was a wedding and although I made the actual wedding, I missed most of the pre-wedding activities that I had rsvped for. The seats were really uncomfortable, particularly the lack of low back support. I was very sore after the flight and was unable to sleep despite having been awake for over 24 hours prior to the flight. We were finally given meal tickets but was unable to use as everything closed at 10pm."
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it's not even delay, but the terrible incompetent unprofessional way this was handled."
Pros: "Boarded online. Upgraded to a Comfort seat in and exit row. So wasn't cramped but the entertainment/movie icon happened to be missing from my monitor only. So 5 and a 1/2 flight with nothing to watch. The food tray was also pretty filthy. Otherwise a solid trip. Nice, accomadating crew and with a female pilot! Loved that!"
Pros: "American airlines managed to get me to my destination."
Cons: "It was an awful ride. The food was horrendous. The plane was ancient. No outlets, no personal TVs. The plane looks like it was from the 1990s."
Pros: "The crew and captain were lovely and communicative."
Cons: "Our plane was very old and there were engine problems that kept us grounded for hours at JFK. I was terrified the entire time we were in the air that something might go wrong. Additionally, the air conditioner worked very poorly."
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Friendly, efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles very tight."
Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."
Pros: "- Got to the destination early."
Cons: "- time it took to get off the plane. - time it took for baggage to come out. - being forced to check in my carry on bag that had fragile items."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Cons: "I didn't get home til 1am bc of this flight delay. A lot of the passengers were on the final leg of overseas travel, so we had a really hard time with the delays. Boarding was inefficient. Cree counted us like 6 times. Why is that necessary? Plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was professional and very accommodating."
Cons: "Cramped quarters."
Cons: "Seats were too small which made it hard to get comfortable."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The smell of the bathroom"
Pros: "Nice crew clean airplane"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled after 2 hours delay. My next flight was scheduled the earliest possible by AA which was 24 hours later. No transportation,hotel or miles compensation for this. I had work and responsabilities the next day. TThe scheduled trip was supposed to take off at 7:45. Boarding started late and was very slow. My bag fit the meassurements and still was forced to check it (which I did not want to do as I did not want to be waiting an hour for my bag at my arrival as I had work early the next day. In addition there was airplaine traffic as it was "rush hour" instead of flying at 7:45 we departed almost at 9pm!!!! Have to pay for food Quality of tv monitors very poor And in an uncomfortable position No movie options No wifi although stated the aircraft has Non functioning electrical plug"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to change my seat to sit with my husband because there were empty seats."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that children sitting behind us weren't told to stop kicking the chair. They also spoke loudly when it was quiet and thus woke me up from my sleep. We were delayed leaving due to unforeseen circumstances, but our arrival time was only 15 minutes later. There was a lot of turbulence during this flight."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants on American Airlines were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The American crew made a long flight comfortable and bearable"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The planes are old. Needless to say there is no Wi-Fi, and the only entertainment on a 7.5 hour flight was a tiny tv in the center of aisle. 1987 tech in 2017. Our plane was delayed for 8 hours due to a broken hydrolics system, and no compensation for additional expenses due to equipment failure was offered."
Pros: "I like américain airline"
Cons: "I don't like the transfer between the aéroport it take long time plus I pay the ticket for the bus when I ask British crew they sad is free. And I arive to my second fly in last minute.clise to miss the flight"
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Cons: "Never made it to San Juan to catch my cruise. To top things off I was a ship for two days without my luggage and underwears. Never again!!! Thank you JetBlue!!!"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew. On time."
Cons: "Upgraded seat to be more comfortable. Very, very cold. Uncomfortable cold. Apparently it was an old plane and adjustments to temperature were difficult. No individual tv screens. At one point the steward lost control of drink cart and crashed into my personal headphones which he broke."
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly staff"
Cons: "We were a little delayed"
Pros: "Friendly crew and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Older plane without individual entertainment choice. No food other than a single bag of pretzels offered."
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, was able to get rest on an overnight flight with my wife, good selection of movies."
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Cons: "4 hours delay and a plane with no tv or any kind of entertainment."
Cons: "Your partner vayama doesn't provide the terminal or airline. Went to Iberia/ terminal 7 just to realize it was AA/terminal 8."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation. Very old plane - no televisions, communal in-flight entertainment. Uncomfortable seats, dirty tables, loose arm rests. Food was outdated and terrible."
Pros: "Early departure and arrival, mostly comfortable flight, satisfying food, helpful crew"
Cons: "I did not have the option to reserve an aisle seat in advance, and I was stuck with a middle seat."
Cons: "The flight to NY took too long and I missed the connecting flight to DC. There was no one to help speed up the process through security and customs so I could make my flight instead, I was just rebooked for a flight 4 hours later. I have to drive to Richmond, VA tonight to make work tommorrow. I hate this neglect towards time."
Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit messy"
Cons: "My flight was changed to a different airline owned by Alaska. The new airline did not have my reservation information. If was a bit of a headache when checking in."
Pros: "Customer service excellence The flight attendants were very attentive"
Pros: "When I arrived at the airport to see the scheduled 9:30a departure was pushed back to 1pm, the gate crew did a good job of keeping us updated and they even provided lunch! The plane was undergoing maintenance but they found another plane and did not have to cancel the flight, and ultimately got us to our destination safely. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so my half day of travel became a full day, half of which was mostly wasted at the airport. Would rather have been with my family than sitting at the airport."
Cons: "My family and I make I JFK -LAX reservation 4 months ago. We came to LAX three hours before our flight to make sure we get good seats. At the checking kiosk we did not have the option to pick seats , there was a message on the boarding pass that said to go see boarding agent. So we did, appreantly they over booked the trip and they were looking for volunteers to give up their seats!! Why did we have to be on stand by if our booking was confirmed 4 months ago!! They made us wait until the gate was closed and then they found us seats . This trip caused us mental anguish I will never fly American Airlines again"
Pros: "Never made this flight they rerouted."
Pros: "Reserved seating at time of boiling so all 5 of us sitting together."
Cons: "When we got our boarding passes we were all sitting in different places. I cannot understand how you sit a 3 and 4 year old away from their parents. Shocking oversight."
Pros: "Comfort. We had a bulk head seat. Newer plane"
Cons: "No food offered . Not even for purchase."
Cons: "The stewardesses repeatedly rammed their cart into my seat. They were so rude. it was appalling. I will never fly american airlines again"
Pros: "The associates at the terminal, who faced long delays and concerned and frustrated customers were patient and gracious. Following prescribed procedures they made announcements, apologized and provided snacks for the long delay."
Cons: "Having to wait for an extended time in the terminal. Delays turned my 10 hour journey into 24 hours."
Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours."
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Cons: "Airline refused to honor ticket purchased through vayama. Kayak. American seems to be in some kind of work slowdown and they tried to make as many people as possible miss their flights. It was awful. I will never fly american again. Awful."
Cons: "The crew i ask for a coffee with half and half and he tell me that is not a starbucks horrible fligth departure delayed"
Cons: "The cabin crew were quite unpleasant. Seats are terribly crowded and uncomfortable"
Cons: "El trato de la tripulacion, la renovacion de los aviones"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "The seats are really small. Even for people not considered tall."
Pros: "The crew was really nice. They were friendly and genuine."
Pros: "Cabin crews are kindley attended."
Cons: "It's O.K. with good price."
Cons: "Infotainment system"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Seating, more space, luggage delivery"
Cons: "Space in between seats - very tight"
Pros: "Nice crew seamless flight"
Cons: "Would be nice if the planes were air conditioned on the ground because they're very very hot and it didn't cool down much during the flight"
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "Long walk to our gate."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."
Pros: "Not a goddamn thing."
Cons: "The boarding was a cattle care, atrociously organized, took forever. They were asking the better part of ten dollars for headphones. No way to get a drink, as with the trip over, the chairback screens didn't work, and they never notified me by e-mail that you had to order food in advance. Not even a glass of water available on a 7 hour flight, that's actually a health hazard, should be illegal. No coffee or tea. The window seat I paid up for was about 8 inches from the window, so I couldn't even lean my head there. No in-flight magazines, or handing out newspapers , no entertainment available, just sitting there uncomfortably for 7 hours while the attendants huddled behind drawn and velcro'ed curtains doing nothing. A true disgrace. Avoid Iberia and their LEVEL subsidiary like the plague. Unacceptable in every way....and at least Ryan Air and WOW are cheap, this flight was full price. Total rip-off, never again."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online because I don't have 2 surnames. I arrived at Granada airport early to allow plenty of time to check-in. So did about a thousand other people. There was only one person available to check everyone in for Iberia. It was grateful. Plane was old. Not even a glass of water was offered."
Cons: "Legroom a little scarce on a 12-hour flight, even though I'm only 5'7" tall."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The lack of water offers during the flight"
Pros: "Everything was perfectly...nice crew"
Pros: "Same as the first flight. Great luggage transfer."
Cons: "Middle seat"
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: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was in bad shape, dirty and the seats were very worn out. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The premium economy does help for Long lights. Mine was BCN to OAK and being a y’all person the extra legroom was much appreciated. With the low cost of level I would fly again for sure"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken meal"
Cons: "The plan was too small."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Very tight seats. I’m not that tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Cons: "the portion Tel Avivi Madrid was very poor. The plane was very old the business clase very bad. The seats were very old No space for the foots and NO entreatments service available. This in a five hours flights, Just horrible."
Pros: "Crew did get us on standby; more legroom than trans-Atlantic flight"
Cons: "6 hours too late"
Pros: "Crew was nice and I had a great flight with Iberia on my flight from Chicago to Madrid"
Cons: "I am 6 feet 180 pounds and I had absolutely no legroom was completely stuck in my seat can’t believe that a tourist class seat is this small with no legroom"
Cons: "they book flight connections too close in madrid, resulting in big hassles, especially if passport control is also involved"
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent entertainment options."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and not enough leg room."
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: "Seats in the first flight were very tight"
Cons: "No space for the legs!"
Pros: "This was a good flight with good service and a nice crew. It was especially nice to have actual silverware to use for the meal."
Cons: "Changing terminals in New Yory was challenging because the route was not clearly marked. They did not honor the on-line boarding passes, so I had to go to the counter to reprint the boarding passes and then go through security again. I also would have preferred a clean blanket once I got on board. The flight attendants seemed hesitant to speak to me in Spanish, which I speak pretty well and they also seemd uncomfortable talking to me in English, which is my native tongue. This made it hard to interact with them in my normal good natured way."
Pros: "Aircraft is comfortable (A340-600)"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude."
Cons: "No ability to do online checkin both websites were not working."
Pros: "Entertainment content was good and made the long trip more pleasant. I got a seat in the emergency exit and had lots of space for my legs. Alleys are quite narrow although and the crew was bumping into my arm quite often but overall seating experience was good."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. It was difficult to understand the groups that were supposed to board. Overal check in process took too long. I arrived to the airport 3 hours in advance and finally made it to the gate when boarding started. Food can be improved as well. Had the pasta with spinach which consisted in some tortellini with very greasy cheese and way too many peppers. Second meal consisted in a sad croissant with ham and cheese."
Pros: "Absolutely on time!"
Cons: "The boarding was slow"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "All snacks and beverages appeared to be at cost. No in-flight entertainment. My traveling companion's luggage was never delivered to our destination and really made for a less enjoyable trip (since she had to purchase everything anew, as well as having to repeatedly contact the airline to check on the bag - receiving multiple inaccurate stories as to what happened). It makes me far less likely to fly or recommend this airline again. Luggage tracking should be a very simple process."
Cons: "My seat was behind a couple with two children that cried and cried and screamed during the flight, couldnt sleep not even with the headphones helped listening to those children crying. Iberia offered to check in my luggage so i can pick it up at my final destination, but my bag never made it. Had to wait two days woth no clothes or work items i needed in my luggage. Overall a very bad experience with iberia"
Pros: "Good selection of entertainment and crew was very nice."
Cons: "We had to sit on the plane for almost an hour because our gate wasn't ready."
Pros: "Iberia is fine"
Cons: "Kayak booked through Webjet. Flights changes. Webjet never contacted me. Found out when checking in. Spent hours on phone getting rebooked right before travel."
Pros: "Crew was nice and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Boarding process out of Miami international was disorganized and unpleasant. Crew did not have control over the order for boarding and it became a bit of a mob."
Pros: "Perfectly orchestrated flight with excellent customer service. The rhythm of the crew members was fun to watch."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The staff is incredibly friendly and they serve you a lot of food and drinks. I think the seats on the larger planes are older but they are more comfortable for me and I loved my movie selections! I took 4 flights with Iberia 2 long ones (11 hours each way) and two shorter ones (5 hours each way) and they were on time, friendly and very comfortable on every flight! I will definitely be flying with them again!"
Pros: "Comfortable, nice entertainment, very nice pilot"
Cons: "Part of the crew was a little rude. Didn't prepare the front row well for landing and take off (back packs on the floor, screens open)"
Pros: "I liked that I made it from Marrakech to Madrid in one piece."
Cons: "Everything. People were getting up, switching seats, in people's way, screaming over other passengers. The crew MAYBE twice said something to the passengers but essentially washed their hands of it. They just let them run amuck. Even when going through some turbulence the pilot came on to tell everyone to sit down. No one did, but the air stewards also didn't say anything. Do you know what it's like to have an unwanted man's private area in your face for several minutes while he holds a conversation, though you ask him to move, but he continues? It's disrespectful. Then when boarding, they opened the front and back doors, so people were coming in both ways. People in seat 7A were coming from the back to the front and people in 23C were coming from the front to the back. Literally a handful of people on this flight had consideration for others and let them pass. Others were just shoving their way through, or exhaustively waiting for someone to finally stop talking and get in their seat, so they could pass. It was a nightmare. And still, the crew did nothing."
Cons: "Crew was good but they could be friendlier (i.e. smile).."
Pros: "Flight attendant didnt help to pup up my luggage; even water was not free"
Cons: "They claimed my reservation had been cancelled, I had to call the airline, they showed I was still confirmed. this wasted a lot of time and i almost missed my flight."
Pros: "I booked a trans-Atlantic flight through Kayak. Flight out of US was direct from Tampa to Gatwick. Return flight was Direct from Madrid to Miami and 4 hour layover in Miami to Tampa. The booking was advertised as a British Airlines flight, although operated by Iberia and American on the return. I found the comfort of the accommodations, food, and service in business class to be on par with, or better than, competitors'. We especially liked the entertainment/communication system built into every cubicle - good sound, lots of good movies and shows, and great screen quality. The multicourse meals had good options and were fresh tasting."
Cons: "The Madrid leg of the journey, operated by Iberian Air on route 6231, destroyed the goodwill earned by British Airlines. Iberian Air delayed our departure from Madrid for technical difficulties, which I understand is the risk in air travel. When Iberian Air finally cancelled flight 6231 it became obvious we would miss our connection flight home in US. I began contacting the airlines for rescheduling/reimbursement requests. British Air sent me to a customer service line which rang busy for 4 hours straight. Iberian said they were sorry for the inconvenience but they could get us a free snack at the snack bar and book us on the next connecting flight in Miami (which was 45 minutes after the flight we had missed. It didn't matter that customs procedures in US would likely overlap that leg as well. American Airlines (the operating partner in the US) advised that either Iberian or British Air would have to reimburse for a new flight. I ended up just renting a car in Miami and driving the 300 miles back to Tampa, after 24 hours of air travel and missing both the connections. The upside is that Kayak was prompt in sending electronic updates from the airlines notifying of the delayed flight time/need for new seats/flight cancellation. Iberian Airlines never even changed its online flight status for the original flight which it cancelled."
Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Pros: "Stroopwaffles, TVs"
Cons: "They made me check my bag which was ridiculous. It’s been on numerous flights and was smaller than any other bag in the overhead bins"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly on board. The gate crew were a little curt, but it was a full flight and they were really trying to get everyone on board quickly so I can't be too upset about that."
Cons: "Few entertainment options - direct TV unavailable for about half the flight, WiFi also unavailable for the same."
Pros: "The transportation..."
Cons: "There's absolutely no leg room it's the smallest amount of room I have ever experienced on a plane - even the first class is eh - mediocre at best. I am slim and fit and I had very little to no room. Consider someone overweight and they would have to buy 2 seats... united is definitely not my favorite airline..."
Pros: "I like the United app for ease of checkin"
Cons: "Flying itself is a terrible experience. Cramped seats, food is nonexistent, no wifi"
Pros: "it was very comfortable"
Pros: "Food and in flight service"
Pros: "The staff was friendly... I liked the dimmed lights... The free beverages n options to purchase alcohol... The flight was quick and steady"
Cons: "When I got to my seat I had to use a wipe to clean it because there was what looked like either throw up or oatmeal on my seat.... The pocket in front of me was filled with trash like an empty water bottle, a bag of chips and dirty napkins (they were very big so it was obvious that no one cleans between flights)... Also it didn't matter how many times I tried connecting to the wifi, I couldn't and I was willing to pay for it to because it was important that I work during my flight."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The plane was delayed and it was very annoying to get to Grand Rapids late."
Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."
Pros: "A very smooth ride"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Airport was horrible! Security line was 45 min. long and on the other side of the world. The plane was an hour late! No snow. No storms. Why? The crew, I guess tired, seemed bothered by the company of the passengers. The line to wait at the gate was very unorganized and confusing. No one knew which line was for which gate and people where cutting into lines everywhere. The airlines should provide better guidance for its passengers. I was connecting from Germany with Lufthansa and wow what a difference in customer service."
Pros: "It's was quick."
Cons: "Delayed a bit but mostly ok."

Cons: "Flight Attendants took forever to come and bring you water, headphones or something to eat. Seats were uncomfortable and my headrest was broke. I paid for Wifi and it didn't work. Food is over priced. Boarding was telling us our flight was full so please check your luggage but I was row 4 and the flight crew let everyone on with two bags and the last people in 4 and 5 were screwed and upset for checking our bags."
Pros: "The steward on this flight was very attentive. He anticipated my needs and those of the other passangers."
Cons: "This was a turbo jet and was very noisy. My seat was in the front and there was very little leg room. Fortunately, I am a short and and short legged."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff."
Cons: "While people were waiting on delay their was no effort made to get people seat locations. When time to board their was a line of 30 people getting new seat location before they could board the plane. A seat location I had for 3 months and checked in Ft. Myers 8 hours earlier was occupied so I was told very rudely to get in line behind 30 people to get new seat location. It took over an hour to board plane before take off. There was non English speaking customers who received no help boarding plane finding seats because crew was laughing joking with other passenger. They tried to put a non English speaking passenger in exit row. I paid $25 to check a bag to find passengers getting free bag checking at gate."

Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 2 hours. Then the guy on the front desk was really rude .. Maybe because I'm Latino? I mean he was super friendly with a white guy and a African American girl .. But with me .. Rudeness and bad service .. I said "hello , how are you?".. He didn't answer .. I told him when I did my checkin my boarding pass had "See agent" in the seating section .. He just took the ticket and gave me the last sit available on the plain even though I arrived almost 3 hours before the original departing hour .. I don't know .. It might be the only available sit or it was just a racist thing .. Who knows .. Really disappointed with United. I'll go back with Ameican Airlines."

Cons: "Boarded plane to find out that there was no crew available. Got off and were told to wait for further instructions. Three more delays until finally leaving 3 hours late.

Cons: "The flight was rescheduled due to weather, it would have been nice to have a meal voucher so people were less aggravated and hungry. My biggest issue was that the T.V. screen was very bright and gave me a migraine. If there was a way to darken, or even shut it off, that would be much more pleasant."
Pros: "I liked the snack waffle the crew gave during flight. Taste real good."
Cons: "I was too cramped in my seat."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and accommodating for a mother traveling with 2 minor children"
