Pros: "nice but slow in business class"
Read more about WestJet
Pros: "nice but slow in business class"
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "The plane was nice and quiet, and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "It was so cold!!"
Pros: "I did not make it on the flight as the time was given was 5:35 and the flight left at 4:00."
Cons: "I was not given correct information and being a very novice traveller did not check the information."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"
Pros: "ON TIME."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "Comfort, timing. Customer Service!"
Cons: "Technically problems with lightning on board."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "We departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "Crew were great, service was spot on."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Cons: "The food was extremely mediocre for an $18 meal."
Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"
Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "I love the digital display on the back of the seat in front of me that tells altitude, speed, and where I am on a map."
Cons: "Kaya k sucked and I will not deal with them again. I know they are not West Jet, just venting."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "Helpful polite staff. Many great movies and tv shows to select from."
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an uncomfortable, small, non reclining seat."
Cons: "Staff was impatient and snappy when telling passengers to do something the first time. Smiles were forced and didn't seem genuine. Otherwise the flight arrived safely and early."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "6 hours delay"
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"

Flight was delayed be 3 hours and no advise on what to do on vouchers for food and drink provided

I was unable to make this flight due to cancellation of my first leg. Aer Lingus is impossible to reach by phone, so I am still struggling to figure out if I will lose my return trip.

Toke forever to clear security at DUB airport, the flight was comfortable but no food served.

Pros: "I never got on the flight as there is a global pandemic and a mandate for NY'ers not to travel. The worst part is that I don't think I'm getting a refund."
Pros: "They were nice, rushed through beverages, but since it was a short flight that's understandable."
Cons: "The top cushion on the seats could be less bulky."
Pros: "Crew and new, spacious aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to late arrival of aeroplane."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The last 4 flights with Aerlingus have all been at least 2 hours delayed to London. People give out about Ryan Air but I have been flying with them to France 2 a year for the last 4 years and I only had one delayed flight because of air traffic controllers"
Pros: "The price point."
Cons: "Service was terrible, staff was rude. For an international flight they provide you next to nothing. Only 1 meal and soda or water. They didn’t even have coffee or give napkins with the meal. The seats were smaller than usual and uncomfortable. In addition they lost our luggage."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Would have been excellent but it was 30mins late"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Pros: "Generally a smooth experience."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Charging for drinks is out of character for a good airline. Go back to free non-alcoholic drinks."
Cons: "Should have included meals on flights that are 8hrs."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Quick, on time, professional."
Cons: "Shuttle transfers... I prefer direct to plane boarding."
Pros: "Surprised it was as good as it was having read so much negative news about what British Airways had become"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We loved this land of green but especially the good people. Aer lingus staff everywhere treated us with kindness and necessary help. Already plannng on returning. They only slight problem was that it was difficult to hear the pilot because of poor speakers. But the crew was wonderful."
Pros: "When my flight was cancelled due to weather they got me on to another flight right away and I didn’t miss my connection. However I waited in line for an hour and a half, maybe I was lucky because I was near the beginning of the line. There was only one person for awhile helping re route people."
Pros: "Smooth uneventful flight. Still needs far more leg room for everyone taller than 5’5”. This is makes longer flights very difficult to endure."
Pros: "I loved that they had blankets and pillows available, and the seats overall were comfortable. I also loved the in seat screens so we could watch movies. The select was a little limited compared to other airlines, but they still had some brand new releases. They also fed us two meals and a snack, and the crew was super nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. It was done by row numbers but not very well announced, so I wasn’t actually sure when my row was supposed to board."
Pros: "Beautiful flight, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to equipment issues for 7 hours. Got a $20 voucher for food."
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "The chairs are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and courteous. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken and leaned back too far. Audio plug wouldn’t accept two prong headset. Video screen was nonfunctional on flight to Dublin."
Pros: "Blankets and earphones provided."
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin at British Airways; there needs to be better signage at desk. Flight was delayed and we almost missed connection. Seat would not tilt back."
Pros: "I have never been on an airplane with a crew that constantly gave out orders during the flight. Having the trays and seat backs put up one hour before the flight landed? Frequent barking about the shades needing to be up or down? Making you put your seat back up because someone’s drinking coffee behind you? It got old. I suspect this is a company thing. They seemed friendly enough but they have their marching orders!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Uneventful"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Cold air was on for the entire flight, despite it being 4 degrees outside"
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Cons: "Crew is borderline aggressive and arrogant."
Cons: "That the brekfast was not served"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Slow crew service couldn't get coffee served beyond first 5-6 rows before landing. Crew just putting in time chatting with each other. Couldn't get boarding pass til morning of flight."
Pros: "What is there not to like: The crew are courteous and caring, the planes are clean and the price is right!"
Cons: "The check-in in Duesseldorf was subcontracted and staffed by an uninformed agent which led to a lot of confusion and inconvenience in Dublin. Someone like that does not reflect well on Aer Lingus which I definitely recommend otherwise!"
Pros: "Short flight to London"
Cons: "There was no boarding pass issued for the Lon - Ny trip. Additionally, when we arrived to London, there was no direct transfer from our landing gate to our departure gate forcing us to have to exit and then reenter. There was no ground avail to assist either. Since the dub - Lon flight was delayed, we have 60 min to get a boarding passes / re renter security / & had to run to the flight which was a mile all with a 2 yr old."
Pros: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"
Cons: "..."
Pros: "entertainment was great on board food was good (for airline food) staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The customer service did not help at all."
Pros: "friendly cabin crew."
Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "I was comfortable enough to fall asleep before takeoff. No long lines or waiting"
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "smooth landing in the snow storm"
Cons: "better movies and wifi"
Cons: "Service on board"
Pros: "Aer Lingus' international flights have a while's way to go before it can rival that of Singapore Airlines (in terms of food & comfort), but overall it was good for the price. It was spacious enough for my 12" MacBook to be used, but as is the case with all flights, it gets crammed when the front passenger reclines."
Cons: "My ticket was somewhat unclear on what airline i was flying to London. I thought it was British Airways when it was really Aer Lingus. Almost missed the flight being in the wrong terminal."
Pros: "It is nice to pass customs in Europe during preboarding"
Cons: "Web check in was severely broken or misprogrammed during my two weeks of travel. This would not have mattered if they had simply assigned seats at the time of purchase. I bought tickets 8 months in advance for a family of 4. On our overnight flight we were shoved in to nonreclining seats in front of the noisiest bulkhead service area I have ever encountered. None of the 5 phone reps or onsight staff were able to help and were nasty into the bargain. One of them lied to me about the seat position on the phone. The staff made no attempt to keep things quiet on the flight and in fact made most of the noise themselves. The armrests can't be folded up because they crammed too many seats across. And the bathrooms right on either end of our row wafted noxious odors over us every time they were opened. This resulted in losing two days of my expensive vacation trying to recover from lack of sleep. This is in return for giving Aer Lingus the use of $4200 for 8 months. I would never use this airline again."

Great flight, crew helpful, plenty of food and drink and loads of flight entertainment to pass the time.

Check-in in airport was painless with no queue and our queries were dealt with efficiently. Flight was comfortable. Food and service was not as good as outbound flight, but still OK.

The flight was half filled, so that made for a very nice flight. The flight attendants were very nice. Flight left on time and arrived on time.

Need better snacks. Just pretzels isn’t going to cut it.

Solid airline and service

Pros: "crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated."
Cons: "Middle seat was occupied on my flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew very appreciated!"
Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "Seat very spacious, was given a extra legroom sit"
Cons: "My screen was not working properly. I didn’t ask for help as I had work to do so I didn’t need it."
Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."
Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Cons: "Xx"
Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."
Pros: "Crew was good for the situation."
Cons: "Made me check a bag saying the overhead bins were full. When we got on the plane there was a huge amount of bin space. Wasted 45 minutes of my time waiting for a bag. Made us sit on the plane for two hours before takeoff even though they knew we were delayed upon boarding."
Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "The gate attendant was very hard to understand and so I couldn’t hear what she was saying."
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Pros: "Left on time. TSA boarding pass."
Cons: "1. Seats uncomfortable- too close together. Causing the person in the middle to lean on me. 2. The seat in front of me reclined into my space leaving me no room to extract my food tray and to cramped to work on my computer. 3. When buying a ticket no assigned seat. Paid 100.00 extra to select my seat and it didn’t allow me to choose anyway. When I went to select my return seat I had two choices- a middle seat or pay an additional 35.00 for a premium seat. 4. Had to pay 140.00 for luggage with no carry on (70.00 each way) 5. Not going to fly American anymore."
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."
Cons: "I waited over 45 minutes for luggage to even begin to unload. Absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "Great no complaints"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"
Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Pros: "From the time we got to the counter to boarding and then the flight, we were treated extremely well and with care. We were brought to the front of the line for preboarding. Everyone used our name and smiled as they provided service."
Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "Legroom terrible"
Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"
Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Food voucher, small consolation for a missed dinner with family!"
Cons: "Delayed due to tire issue, deboarded and were told another plane would be there in 45 minutes, took 3 hours!!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Leg room is getting less and less. I’m 5’10” and couldn’t move my legs."
Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."
Pros: "Nice new Aircraft. Good service. Reasonable food."
Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"
Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."
Pros: "I was treated in a professional fashion"
Cons: "I don't think it is right for the airlines to have any passenger seating in such a tight space."
Pros: "I loved getting up close and personal with others."
Cons: "I didn't like being stuck in a window seat next to two oversized passengers. The person in the isle announced to the middle seat that " I'm giving you notice that I need all of my seat". So the middle seat took up part of my seat, and I feel cheated, because I couldn't use all that I paid for."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."
Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"
Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."
Pros: "How dark the flight was to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."

More people at check-in but I understand there is staff lacking.

Boarding was a mess. Organization and personnel assistance in both airports, Barcelona and Gatwick, were absent. Once check-in were completed, the rest was much better.

I flew round trip on “Iberia”. 4 flights and I never took an Iberia plane. They put us on a budget airline transatlantic.

I did not realize Iberia had booked a flight from the company Level, which is a low cost airline without food

Yes

Very unhelpful in locating me as a passenger

It was a really long flight but Iberia made it less tiring with great food and great entertainment.

Many people had masks off for very long periods of time. I noted one woman sleeping for the last 3 hours of the flight with no mask on. Cabin crew walked past several times, served drinks and food and didn’t bother to say anything until land procedures. Also during the meal they flight attendant told us there was one chicken meal left and left it amount is to argue who gets it. Frustrating and unsafe flight.

Pros: "The crew was extremely kind and selection of food/drinks was excellent."
Cons: "The crew was very aggressive and impolite. As a matter of fact I have never been in a flight in my life with such sort of crew attitude - especially with my kids (ages 6 and 10) - real animals. I will make an effort to not to with IBERIA ever again. I’m concierge key with AA and only with with Iberia because of the One World partnership."
Pros: "The atendió"
Cons: "El embarque"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Puntual en horas de salida y llegada"
Cons: "Son muy incómodos los asientos para un vuelo trasatlántico"
Cons: "Fly on time"
Cons: "The crew was very unpleasant . I boarded the plane - was not even greeted. This was not like business class at all . I felt like I just wasted money and did not get even close the service I expected. Flight attendants were ignoring my requests - no blankets no cocktails ... very bad ."
Pros: "Competent."
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best and selection doesn't vary."
Pros: "The flight went as expected. there were no surprises."
Cons: "?"
Pros: "not enough leg room. Tray too small."
Cons: "the above"
Pros: "Al the devices provided"
Pros: "We arrived on time!"
Cons: "Checking in and dropping off luggage was a nightmare... There was no one at the check in desks indicated on the screens or the check in terminals. Eventually I found a desk at a different location that would take my bag. Boarding was chaotic, no lines, just a crowd blocking access. Even passengers with small children couldn't get through. Space between seats was minimal. Crew was ordering passengers to take headphones off during security demo. I understand it is important to be attentive, but ultimately you shouldn't be forced to."
Pros: "On time overall, no delays"
Cons: "Boarding was awful and no food at all, it is a 3 hour flight and not cheap but even water cost"
Pros: "Two hour flight, with nice crew. Entertainment on board with a good selection is based on wifi and your ownd device. On time"
Cons: "Food is not free. If you want some, pay for it (what nowadays is normal). Leg space was tight for me"
Pros: "Wine and ham in Spain."
Cons: "I went jfk to mallorca through Madrid. Upon arrival to Madrid the passport control was 2hrs so we and a lot of other people missed connections. At the Iberia counter we were put on the next flight out to mallorca, that seemed to be no problem (FYI bags will be late and you may too since iBeria ‘must’ keep thee on time global record) , other than our bags came a day later. UPON arriving 20 days later for our return trip they said our return trip was cancelled because of a ‘no show’ on our original inbound trip. They said they had no proof we were on the next flight and asked for our Receipts to prove it. Said we had to buy new tickets, after 2 hrs, crying, yelling and most of Iberia telling us there was nothing they could do (told us to call BA since they were the co share for them) we finally got a high enough supervisor and they put us on the return flights. I’m sure we would have had to buy new tix if the flights were full. Have been overseas many times and this never happened. Will not use a 3rd party online ticket agency again- will go direct to airline, and not Iberia."
Pros: "Smooth travels , good on board service , clear directions , clean"
Cons: "No negative complaints"
Pros: "Very timely, even cut the expected time of travel. Decent food, very friendly staff. Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "The seats and the lack of space"
Pros: "Very little - other than getting off"
Cons: "Every detail from rude checking all the way through rudness"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t unfriendly , no food was provided"
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."
Pros: "The crew members were all very kind!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, the wifi was not working the entire 8-hour flight."
Pros: "You get a good selection of in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Food was very bad and during the entire 10 hour flight all I received to drink was a half a can of soda and a small glass of orange juice. Seats are very uncomfortable. After the first half of the flight the bathrooms were really dirty and messy."
Pros: "clean"
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."
Pros: "That I arrived"
Cons: "Iberia flight was delayed by 45 minutes causing me to miss my connection from London to Dublin."
Cons: "didnt get support for connecting flight. Flight was delayed in run way making us miss the connecting flight."
Cons: "For the first time ever an airline lost my luggage. I fly several times a year and thus was my firat time flying Iberia. What a headache and inconvenience."
Pros: "Check in personnel were able to place me in the 3rd row where the seat pitch was poor but not as bad as the rows farther back. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "This was return part of my journey. The LHR to MAD leg of my journey was extremely painful. I was unable to pay online or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time online or on the phone. Even in the 3rd row it was difficult to fit my thigh length in the seat pitch. I had to sit with my legs splayed and with one leg in the aisle. My leg was constantly hit by luggage, pax, and cabin crew. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. With the short seat pitch emergency evacuation would be very difficult for me and the other pax. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were ok."
Cons: "no leg room."
Pros: "Reclination system, closer and closer to the AVE, is an advantage. Although still to improve how not to disturb the passenger behind you."
Cons: "Boarding was messy. We barely fitted in the waiting area. Food quite crappy, especially breakfast."
Cons: "Flt attendants unnecessarily bossy."
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: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent movie selection, ample leg room, clean and new plane, staff was attentive."
Cons: "Food was average, foot rests were hard to operate, alcohol selection was scant, only beer and wine are complimentary, you must pay for spirits in premium economy"
Cons: "1 hour delay upon arrival die to no available gates"
Pros: "Missed flight as scheduled changed forward by half an hour and re-organising another flight was difficult. Had to fly from another airport in Spain and transfer was without assistance. Staff did a good job at sorting a solution. The return home on BA was excellent and very efficient."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft was really hot, I was sweating in my seat... I did not receive any complementary drinks or snacks."
Pros: "Madrid airport was modern, clean & very welllaid out"
Pros: "great service and nice flight. great pilots and safe trip."
Cons: "Cramped by ok"
Pros: "The flight delayed for 2hours. I required the blanket but it was used with lots of hairs not really hygienic. The crew was not friendly and kind of rude."
Pros: "Direct flight. Great service."
Pros: "On time and no hassles"
