Cons: "To be honest, i feel like your pricing is very misleading. I was not prepared to pay $60 per bag in luggage fees. For an international flight, I believe your site should be much more clear in stating whether the fees paid will include luggage or not. I will consider other options in the future to avoid this unpleasant surprise at the airport."
Pros: "Not full, attendants went out of way to accommodate seating requests"
Cons: "We booked flights with more than 75 mins connection time in Madrid but then the airline changed their schedule which reduced our connection to less than 55 mins. I was traveling alone with my 5 & 7 year old and we had to run non-stop from our 1st domestic flight to the international one, changing terminals, passing passport control (huge lines), and another security. No help from Iberia at all in terms of providing any assistance like a shuttle bus, quick passage thru passport or security. And they were nonchalant in terms of “if you miss your connecting flight, it’s your problem...”. Come on, we paid $4,500 for 3 tickets, and deserve better customer service than this, specially when you changed the flight schedule for your operational reasons!"
Pros: "Boarding, on time, entertainment awesome, food pretty good"
Cons: "Crew not that attentive, seats dont have much room"
Cons: "Changed our seat without notification and didn't help. We talked to 4 gate agents, the boarding gate agent and 3 crews, and they didn't try to help, at all. The pillow had coffee stains and eye make up, even though they were wrap in plastic...."
Pros: "It was a great experience. The crew was helpful and kind."
Cons: "All but two toilets were out of order halfway through the flight."
Cons: "My checked baggage was not trasnferred and did not arrive in Chicago."
Pros: "Extremely comfortable and was served lots of delicious food"
Cons: "My touch screen froze at the beginning and I couldn't use it at all for the entire flight. Then I tried to use the headphones, but they crackled so loud in my ear and didn't work either."
Pros: "Plenty of space for a long flight, left and landed on time. Overall very pleased"
Cons: "Only complaint is that there was not dairy-free friendly food option for either meal. I figured this would happen so I brought my own food and was glad I did"
Cons: "It was hard to find where to go in the Madrid airport.and arrived only just in time to the check in. I was singled out before getting on the plane to be frisked, etc. One said there was something written on my boarding passes that was an alert. I am a 64 year old woman traveling alone....no plans for anything bad to be sure!"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, polite and attentive"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in parts."
Pros: "Arriving safely on time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, unable to adjust temperature individually, huge temperature swings from hot to cold and back to hot, terrible food, impersonal crew service."
Pros: "The plane from Nashville was over an hour late so the flight was changed from Nashville-Philadelphia-London-Rome"
Pros: "the food"
Pros: "Food was good Entertainment system is very good. Good selection of movies with good sound Crew does a fine job"
Cons: "I am an American who flew roundtrip Chicago - Madrid. We (family of 3) still haven't received our lost luggage from 2 weeks ago. When we checked in at Madrid, one staff told us to ask about the luggage downstairs at the luggage retrieval, which we are not allowed into. I came back and another staff woman told us to immediately go through immigration, because it takes so long to get through. Since our luggage appears to be lost for good, we will never take Iberia again. Madrid airport is a nightmare! We arrived at Madrid airport 2 hr 20 min. before our flight. Because the distance from the check-in counter to the plane is unbelievably far, and we all have to wait in very long lines, and then take multiple trains, escalators, and finally a bus, and U.S. passengers have their passports checked twice in long lines, we got on to the plane barely in time, on "last call" 30 min. before it took off. We will never fly through Madrid again! On any other trip from Spain overseas, we will choose some other city in Spain to leave from."
Pros: "goed attention in Iberia A320 600 and very wide"
Cons: "I didn't have any video for over two hours. I had to speak to 4 different crew members to get them to reset my monitor. They were not very friendly."
Pros: "Was surprised to be upgraded to business class, so it was effectively the most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The very friendly and competent attendant. He deserves 5 stars, working alone in cramped conditions."
Cons: "Narrowness of aisle and seats. Minimal legroom and an average person had to bend to get in and out of seats."
Pros: "The terminal at the Madrid airport has good shopping and dining options, but it's rather far and took ~25-30min to get there (including a short wait at the custom control."
Cons: "The check in took an awfully long time, the agent took 25-30 min to finalize our boarding pass."
Pros: "Surprisingly, Iberia provided the best experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and American Airlines"
Cons: "Boarding in Barajas was chaotic, boarding group number signs are not visible and gate audio could not be heard"
Cons: "There was no complimentary water provided"
Pros: "Good food and they have cute kids travel bags to my kids"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of service"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours they changed the gate # My notifications in my phone were wrong overall poor management 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: "Everything was above what I experienced with other airlines."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly"
Cons: "My ticket said operated by British Airways so after an hour of standing in line - why there were two agents baffles me-- I was told to go stand in the Iberia one. I went to a kiosk and it didn't recognize my flight, so I finally got ahold of someone. The night before I was unable to check in because their site had crashed, so there was no way for me to know where to go."
Pros: "No nonsense all business crew. Barajas airport."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. A large crowd was allowed to clog gate access, and no announcements were made regarding boarding procedures therefore as a preboarding family with toddler we had to push through the crowd to accessential the gate. It seems boarding status announcements could have alleviated the boarding tension."
Cons: "Iberia is not good at boarding"
Pros: "Not a full flight so I had to seats to speak out. Flight attendants were friendly and it didn't seem like a 10+ hour flight."
Cons: "I wish there was a quicker flight between LAX - Europe."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Madrid is always a great airport and Iberia is it's top airline."
Cons: "Entertainment opitions weren't great. Crew service with beverages didn't come around nearly as much as a company like Lufthansa or United, etc."
Pros: "Efficient, friendly crew"
Cons: "Rather boring meals Poor flight-following software"
Pros: "My flight was transferred from Kayak to Iberia to American to another third party who would not answer questions and who did not send any confirmation info at all. Boarding should be from the back first to speed it up. It was not. Crew did not have wide variety of refreshments. Seats were much too narrow and there was no leg room. Food helpings were much too small for a long flight. Controls very poor."
Cons: "Cabin crew very unhelpful and unfriendly. Food terrible. Entertainment very lackluster and obscure."
Pros: "The seating in business class was excellent and comfortable."
Pros: "Smooth flight, great crew service, excellent movies selection, adequate meal service. Most importantly, no lost or late arriving luggage."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was excellent."
Pros: "The fact I got home."
Cons: "There was around a 6 hour delay and we had very little info as to what was happening next."
Pros: "Security lines were failrly fast, the flight left and arrived on time and the service in the plane was good great job"
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking were the best things about this flight. The piloting was smooth too."
Cons: "Stewardesses were unfriendly and rude. Long flight, without individual entertainment on seats. Old plane, extremely cramped. The meal request made when booking the flight was not honored. Upon arrival to US customs, was told I was not on the passenger list (thus clearing customs was a bit touchy)."
Pros: "The television on the seatback."
Cons: "Paid $10 for WiFi that didn't work. Given standby seats despite arriving 2 hrs before flight. Service was not particularly friendly. Will try to avoid Iberia in the future."
Pros: "Big comfortable seats."
