Comida y entretenimiento

Pros: "No hay variedad en el entretenimiento."

Pros: "Everything was just fine"
Cons: "I arribes at the airport 1 he before the original flight time because the flight was delayed 50 minutes. Counter told me I couldn't check in my luggage anymore. Avianca was using any possible excuse to give seats to stand by passengers from other flights. There were very long lines of stand by people at the Avianca area."
Cons: "The food could’ve had been better."
Pros: "Entertainment makes flight go faster. Many choices"
Cons: "the Food (. Snack) not the best choice of ham empanada and rice chips plus something else I didn’t even tried."
Pros: "not a lot of wait time"
Cons: "the boarding, dis embarking process, and the three my luggage breaking the suitcase as well they broke my fragile things inside of my suitcase. That was awful. It took an hour for them to put the luggage onto the conveyor belt."
Pros: "They gave us a pillow and a blanket"
Cons: "The earphones for the tv were weird"
Pros: "The pilots landed quite peacefully and the airplane was clean"
Cons: "Food was disgusting. Not many options to choose from."
Pros: "Check in was very smooth. Flight crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Presentation of food was not great."

Cons: "It took 45 minutes to get our luggage in houston."
Cons: "oferts"
Pros: "Nice and clean"
Pros: "Had a row upgrade"
Cons: "Ground personnel at IAH should handle luggage misplaced better. Had to wait 90 minutes for luggage to appear, since no one was able to explain why it never came out on the carrousel."
Pros: "I didn’t have to make long line, they have a pre checked line and it’s faster."
Cons: "When I asked counter personnel for better sitting and responded that there wasn’t , when in fact there were more than 10 seats better than mine."
Pros: "El avión"
Cons: "Las muchachas"
Pros: "nothing, it's like a bus with wings."
Cons: "attention, food, entertainment."
Pros: "Ir was ok"
Cons: "It was noisi. Entertaiment components are bad."
Cons: "More new movies."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "We had a three hour delay on our connection in San Salvador and the customer service surrounding this was extremely poor."
Cons: "First flight delayed, which meant I missed the second flight. What should have been a 6 hour trip became 22 hours. After rescheduling first flight and getting to MIA at 2330, I learned my flight for 0455 was cancelled, which meant my bag that was en route was cancelled. Customer service via phone is completely useless (after a 30 minute wait time). They put me in a hotel and told me to get my bag in the morning when getting on my next flight to GUA. Got there @ 1000 and the avianca baggage office AND the ticketing counter aren’t staffed until 1130 am!!!!! Had to leave the country having no idea where my bag was, now stuck in GUA without it. I’m beyond exhausted and will NEVER AGAIN do business with avianca under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. Terrible doesn’t begin to describe it."
Pros: "Todo muy bien gracias muy profecionales."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Family boarding was super helpful when traveling with a toddler. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seat assigned to my daughter had a faulty life jacket and the crew wanted our family to split up. My daughter is 2 and didn't like that her dad was moving somewhere else as we were taking off. Since the crew member didn't want to ask the individual sitting next to me, I asked if she would mind moving so that our family could stay together."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Boarding staff, inflight service were good. It was first time experience to travel by Avianca airline but was happy. Improve the food for vegetarians."
Cons: "Your check in staff at Lima airport was rude, & unpleasant"
Pros: "Checkin staff very helpful and quick boarding. Infligjt staff polite and professional"
Cons: "No much leg roon."
Pros: "I liked how everyone took pride in their work / job while considering the costumer as well."
Cons: "Didn’t like how quickly the seats popped back to recline. I saw one passenger get her knees bashed and I had a drink spill on me and it wasn’t anyone’s particular fault. Just bad seat design."
Pros: "faltando una semana antes del viaje la aerolinea me envio un correo electronico diciendo q mi vuelo habia sido cancelado., que tendria q salir un dia antes o esperar en otro pais no mi final destino por mas de un dia.,.. es inconsebible q suceda esto., compre mi ticket por adelantado desde septiembre y me encuentro a dias de viajar con esto., que irresponsabilidad de esta aerolinea., despues de llamar por mas de 5 veces con 5 diferente personas... por fin llegamos a un acuerdo de cuando me podria ir... el dia original era 18 de diciembre estoy programado para viajar el 23 y con la persona q hable mi itinerario es Mia-SanSanvador-Tegus... en el WEB dice MIA-Nicaragua-San Salvador - Tegus... voy a recorrer practicamente toda centro america para llegar a mi desdtino final... nose a quien echarle la culpa... a KAYAK"
Cons: "The flight was delayed out of JFK for some unknown reason (definitely not weather or missing plane since it was the first flight of the morning). Several passengers were told their connecting flight would definitely be held for them. A few of us asked for a guarantee because we would rather pay to rebook another flight than get stuck, and the gate attendents at JFK said it was certain we would make our flights. Once we got to El Salvador we were told they never intended to hold our flights. Avianca agents there told the handful of us going to Cancun we we're rebooked on Copa Airline and would have to go to Panama first, then Cancun, and arrive around 10 pm instead of 11 am. Other passengers were stuck in El Salvador for even longer. For our trouble, they only offered a $70 voucher for Avianca which is essentially useless to most of us since it has extensive restrictions. On top of this, the plane seating was small and the food was terrible. When we got switched to Copa there was at least slightly more leg room and better food. Do not fly Avianca!!"
Pros: "The route, not much waiting time, the food."
Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Avianca workers at the El Salvador airport were awful, not only could they not speak english, but they were rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "La atención y su comida"
Cons: "Que mis maletas las 4. no llegaron a Guayaquil y me quedé en ascuas por que son muy importantes. Espero que mañana 28/917 me la envíen como lo Acordado."
Pros: "Speed and punctual"
Pros: "Aside from the issues below, it was a good flight."
Cons: "I was seated by an emergency exit, so i couldn't tilt my seat back. Also, everyone who walked by hit my left arm back and forth. It was very annoying. The cabin felt a bit claustrophobic."
Pros: "Good time and good customer service"
Pros: "all the crew was extremely friendly. The meals were delicious and my vegetarian request was honored. All the flights had meals even though some of them were strange times, and a good beverage selection was also offered. The in-flight entertainment was pretty top-notch. Great ticket price though, and somehow I lucked out and had some free seats next to me in some of the flights. very friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "all the flights that I was on didn't even start boarding until about 20 minutes before the plane was supposed to take off. This resulted in all the flights I was on being around 45 minutes to an hour late taking off. The cabin size was very small, it was hard to fit my stuff in the overhead compartment. not a lot of legroom and for a 6 foot one guy, this was a bit of an issue and I had some intense leg pain from my position. for the low-cost flight that I got I did have some seemingly out-of-the-way layovers and they were also quite long. would be great to see airplanes that The option to choose a bunk bed instead of a regular seat so that you could rest on redeye flights or just take naps in general."
Pros: "check in was a breeze. United had very long lines.....everywhere we went in Central America"
Cons: "they cancelled flight without giving us warning and we had to fly out following day on different airline"
Pros: "Duration Of The Flight. But TACA Airlines is very BAD has to be the Oldest Fleet of Airplanes I've seen in a Long Time. I Guess TACA handles the flights from El Salvador to SFO."
Cons: "A 5+ hour flight the planes they use from El Salvador to San Francisco has NO Entertainment, NO USB Charging outlet and Meal was Horrible. You can really see the difference between an Avianca Flight and TACA flight'"
Pros: "Food, crew"
Cons: "Audio system is old and did not play audio stations, just the video, which is displayed in a few small screens."
Pros: "My wife and I flew coach. As economy fliers we were given a meal, glass of wine, and coffee. The price of the flight and service were great."
Pros: "The flights were on time, with great service."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute due to a broke plane in San Salvadore. However, the staff booked us on a flight with Copa Air. They were extreemly professional, kind and accomodating. Thank you very much. The Copa flight was outstanding service and comfort."
Cons: "El desayuno estaba un poco frio"
Pros: "Staff was nice. Relatively comfortable, good movie selection"
Cons: "I'm vegetarian, only ham and cheese sandwich"
Cons: "Transportation to get the flight was not comfortable since we needed to take a bus and there were not enough seats. Also, some of the flight attends were not friendly and did not ensure that all of the passengers had a blanket"
Pros: "Good food and drinks and great movie options. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Bring your own headphones. While it's pretty awesome that an airline gives away free headphones, they are junk and distort even when just trying to get the volume loud enough to overcome the jet noise."

The check-in process in Rome at FCO with Delta was the worse I have experienced. First the app didn't work so almost every passenger had to check-in. The line went literally out the building. Delta only has two people at the counters. After about 1hr they brought two more. The boarding process was regular nothing special. The food was awful, dull and cold. The crew member were super nice and professional.

Delayed on both flights.

Trip was seamless.

in plane service was very poor, never got asked if I needed anything else. Also, I miss the days when during the boarding the gate agents would actually acknowledge your presence not only stand next to the machine.

Great

Ross, the flight attendant. Won't fly another w his working it.

There was an enormous line at LAX trying to check in and check bags. Fortunately the staff were accommodating and allowed us to check our bags even after the deadline had passed -- but it was definitely an extremely stressful experience!

Back to front boarding works, drop a lot of the prepared categories to Wheelchair, babies, military and 1st class, then board back to front, it works. had difficulty seeing phone to get free wifi, the items you need to check need to be in bigger font.

Pros: "I honestly like the fact they load the plane from the back to front rows."

Cons: "Wouldn’t change a thing! I don’t always fly! But when I do!! I fly delta!!"

Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."
Pros: "Actually leaving the airport after 2 hours late was the best part."
Cons: "Not be hours late. And then when you finally land have to wait longer for an open gate cause they're doing work on the other ones. A lot of poor planning on this trip. Very disappointed in this experience cause I love to fly."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Clean plane. On time"
Pros: "The food choices were broad enough for anyone. They came by with water periodically. The movies offered had a good range. The pillow was a surprisingly good size."

Pros: "Check-in agent was very pleasant even through having to deal with a number of cancelled flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed shortly before it was scheduled for boarding, which resulted in further delays/cancellations along the journey. Earlier notification may have allowed me to remain in Atlanta a night or two longer with my family as opposed to having had to spend many additional hours sitting uncomfortably in an airport."
Pros: "Seats and service."
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "Boarding is easy as always, I like Delta's system."
Cons: "I had a seat by an exit door. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight due to the cold air comin in and hitting my feet / legs. Two coats and a blanket weren't enough to remedy the issue."
Cons: "We left late, it was delayed then maintenance issues. Twice. Seating was very tight and uncomfortable, no movies or entertainment at all. U.S. flights are the worst. Even on short flights with aeromexico outside the U.S. you get movies and food. Zero stars for comfort, food and entertainment."
Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."
Cons: "No drink or snack service. No trash pick up. No option to purchase or rent headphones"

Went the time was to long and No Calls I went and ask a personnel at that time I got a phone call from the Airport personnel also telling me that my suitcase was down in the band. To find out the I have lost the plane. I went and talk to management after a few minutes of conversation nothing happen I have lost my plane my money . I am very frustrated sad because it was not a plesiosaur trip My mother was sick and I needed to see her take her to the Doctor. Had to borrow money from a family member to continue my trip. On my way back I try to check And I was Unable to do so. I arrived to the Airport to find OUT that they cancel my way back too!!!!!! I had to borrow money Again!!!! And stay in the Airport for 8 hrs! This was my experience my lost money time family worried about me and my sister.I had No signal in my phone due to the poor Cituation of this country went I'm able to check my fly with you KAYAK notice the right gate number and time went the plane was living. The attitude of management from Aeromexico was so rude And disrespectful. I will never use them again."
Cons: "For them to accommodate me and my sister in another fly And write the correct gate on my ticket And look for me if I'm not there, Page Over head my name on the Airport NOT just on the cubic area where is so difficult to hear due to all the noises and pages going on from all over Not mentioned that went they page the sound of the Voices is terrible!!!! I have fly with Interjet and Never had this problem They never live no one behind.

Pros: "Servicien was great"
Pros: "Plane was new so that was nice! Clean and elegant, i do like AM domestic business/first class product (but only on the new aircraft, with a footrest), especially in comparison to the US domestict first class. What i like is the footrest and a good inflight entertainment system"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Cons: "I was very unsatisfied with my Aeromexico trip because I missed my connection in Mexico City, and instead of getting rebooked on another flight, I had to buy an entire new ticket. My original ticket was $140 and my new ticket to get home was $350. I have never flown on an airline that makes the passenger buy a new ticket when a connection is missed. I was in the Mexico City airport and only missed my connection by 10 minutes. Very disappointed with Aeromexico. I will be emailing the airline customer service separately too."
Cons: "I didn't like that Aeromexico didn't want to change my flight I had an family emergency and they don't care they just told me they cannot change my flight at all"

Cons: "the sandwich was on a croissant I rather had a bread."

Cons: "It was a l late flight but can't complain."

Horrible, I will never take this airline again."
Pros: "The crew, the food, and the entertainment were all very good."
Cons: "The flight from Houston to Mexico City was delayed a full day, weather I believe, so I had to modify my flight plans to arrive in Houston a day later. These things happen so it's inconvenient but part of traveling."
Cons: "While waiting for my connecting flight in México City, My boarding gate changed and I was not made aware."

Aa es la mejor aerolínea . La atención es excelente y eficientes

The airplane had mechanical problems and they changed the airplane really quick.

I loved the snacks, the attention and kindness from the flight crew and the fact that during the flight there wasn't much turbulence. Also we arrived earlier.

The person sitting next to me took my storage space under the seat but other than that was pretty good service and the food was not terrible.

Missed my connection due to poor weather disrupting AAs entire fleet. Rebooked my flights twice and was still unable to make it home. No offer of hotel compensation despite me being stranded overnight in Houston. Nothing really to do about it- just a bad couple of days to travel. I wish they were a little better at letting us know about delays in good time, as it would have made a difference to my planning.

Left 40 mins late; we were fine on our connection but many on our flight were not.

Cons: "The AC was off while we were waiting to takeoff so it never felt cool in the cabin for the hour(ish) long flight we had. I don’t know if it was the size of plane that made it so we couldn’t have that on while taxiing/waiting our turn to take off or what, but it was too hot and stuffy onboard in Texas on the tarmac. Our next flight from Dallas to Huntsville, AL had the AC on the entire time we were waiting our turn/taking off- the plane was newer and slightly bigger. Not sure what the deal was but it made the flight pretty miserable."
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "ON time"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, my flights were on time, good selection of movies. That's about it."
Cons: "Their Basic fare should be renamed "Bare-sic" – you have to pay for almost anything. Food choices can be better. I guess they can pay the Munich airport to get better treatment and not having to bus their passengers around."
Cons: "Size of seat"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Is ok"
Cons: "More space between seat and free food"
Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "No"
Cons: "The communication on the actual flight could have been better. The flight from Houston to Charlotte was not very informative as in weather conditions, traffic, or the time in which we landed was not gone over."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! We were supposed to leave at 7:30 pm and we ended up departing at 9pm"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "The plane could have been cleaner"

Pros: "Great crew. Easily accessible."
Cons: "Several delays."
Cons: "Gate change and delay in boarding. Delayed landing and made connecting flight difficult"
Pros: "Much better the typical American cattle class. Qantas actually served real food. Cabin was spacious."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Cons: "Need some sort of gluten free snacks!"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth takeoff"
Cons: "The loud child behind me kicking my seat and yelling"
Pros: "Late takoff"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Pros: "Was able to sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "I decided to travel First Class from Houston TX and that was the greatest choice I ever made. IAH requires travelers to arrive 2-3 hrs early due to traffic or weather conditions. I checked in at 2 pm and waited for my 5 pm boarding call. First class was amazing! I stored my belongings without any issues. I sipped wine and dined on pasta and watched the movie Father Figures with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms. The stewardess was polite and friendly. The food was enjoyable and the passengers were friendly. The bathroom as also immaculate, I was impressed."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."
Cons: "The A319 outfitted in this way is to freaking tight!!! There is not even close to enough leg room for an average sized American male. I'm no taller than six foot and not overweight. You must fix this issue. I will look for other carriers whenever possible."
Pros: "Good food!"
Pros: "the fly was on time"
Cons: "I don't like central seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice trip was uneventful."
Pros: "one more bag"
Pros: "Snacks"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"
Pros: "Las aeromosas muy amables y profesionales."
Cons: "Los asientos incómodos que no funcionaban el cambio de posición. El pago de sobrepeso escandalozo; por 10 Libras $160 más extra fees...."
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."
Pros: "This particular trip everything went as well as can be expected. I was upgraded to first on both legs, always a bonus. Crew was friendly and efficient. FYI, this was not AA crew and equipment, was the regional sub. But still, all good."
Cons: "I don't care for the shuttle from the main terminal to the remote. It's crowded and uncomfortable, even for a few minutes."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and caused me to miss another connecting flight to get to my destination, and now need to purchase new tickets."
Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
Pros: "Solo que a la 1:10pm le comunique al sobrecargo del vuelo Avianca #928 Lima _ salvador 1010 1: 20 pm hora local me di cuenta que se quedo el anillo de matrimonio en el paso de migración en la bandeja, el sobrecargo me di una instrucción que debía hablar con el encargado del Salvador la Srta Geaninia Gomez indica que como no es pérdida dentro del avión no se hacen responsables, lo que no estoy de acuerdo que me digan eso ya que es trayecto del vuelo que estaba realizando voy a tomar medidas para presentar un reclamo ya que es un valor sentimental ya que ni me dejaron ir a ver estando casi 40 minutos y sentí que no me ayudaron por los menos con una llamada en el departamento."
Cons: "They lost our baggage and communication was terrible"
Pros: "good attention"
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

Cons: "Movies broken has to change seat"
Pros: "Normally I've been on planes where the seats aren't that great! But these seats were wonderful! :) I was out like a baby!"
Cons: "I don't really like the complimentary pretzels."

Could have newer entertainment

Delayed departure from Lisbon due to security issue but flight arrived on time in Madrid.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being able to go home"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff with bad attitude and willingness to help..."
Cons: "Did not honor easy boarding!"
Pros: "Not much. There was one flight attendant that seemed pleasant but I wouldn’t know for sure since the attendants ignored all passengers except for those who had preordered their meals."
Cons: "It was extremely frustrating that there was no kiosk available when checking in. I did not have a bag to check, yet I waited on a ridiculously long line to check in for my flight. The people working the desk at the gate were slow and unpleasant. Service on plane was terrible."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not only was the flight hours late but there was practically no communication what was going on and what to expect."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "There was no problems whatsoever."
Cons: "The airline accepted our checked baggage, although they already knew that it would not make it to our final destination (Marrakech) on the same day that we would arrive. We had to pay, out of our own pockets, for the inconvenience. Apparently this happens a lot, and it happened to our entire plane"
Cons: "Need more than 2 beverage services in 8 hour flight. Need air flow control at seat."
Pros: "Clean and friendly crew."
Cons: "No food or drink and a single checked bag was extra money."
Pros: "The crew was excellent.My only complaint was as we were sitting in row 54 the crew made too much noise during sleeping time.Other than that they were very helpful and very nice.It was our first time flying Iberia.It was very enjoyable.I will be happy to recommend bthem."
Pros: "Clean and fairly new aircraft. Good flight"
Cons: "Ground staff more helpful"
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"
Cons: "Even water they gave only for purchase. The flight arrived on time, but there was a long wait for luggage at the Budapest airport"
Cons: "Why you have to charge for the bags ?"
Cons: "The airline did not offer any type of refreshments for example water without having to pay for it. I did not expect that. Also I thought the boarding was poorly organized."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The lack of water offers during the flight"
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: "Saving grace: movie selection much better than expected. Food a bit better than expected (in the world of airline food). Crew capable & nice enough. We got to our destination on time, so at least there’s that."
Cons: "Boarding @ JFK was a joke. That part of airport is currently under construction, so massive # of ppl & not enough room for everyone. Once on plane, all reasonably good until we reached altitude & settled in for the evening. At that point, for some reason the heat came on between rows 39 & 46 (we were in row 45) & was on all. night. long. on an overnight flight. Crew was baffled & didn’t know how to fix. I was melting & miserable — impossible to sleep. Cramped, basic economy seats. Awful experience."
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 entertainment was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "I had ordered a gluten free meal but in the chaos of my seat moving multiple times, it got lost in the shuffle so I wasn't able to eat much of the food that was served. I have long legs and the seat provided almost no where for them to go. I was very uncomfortable by the end of the flight."
Cons: "The plan was too small."
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly staff, clean plane."
Cons: "Not even a tiny snack as complimentary for a 3h flight."
Pros: "Me gusta el servicio, la comodidad del idioma.. y la puntualidad de los viajes.."
Cons: "Yo me sentí mal con la displicente atención del auxiliar de vuelo. El no quiso ayudarme a poner mi equipaje de mano en el compartimiento encima de mi asiento. Dijo que si el levantaba esa maleta el podía dañar su espalda.. y el seguro no lo atenderia.. le dije al señor que yo había solicitado asistencia.. pero el dijo que para otra vez, pusiera mi equipaje en carga.. un pasajero vecino de mi asiento al ver la negativa actitud de ese señor.. levantó mi equipaje y me ayudó. Yo soy viajero frecuente de Iberia y se que una mala actitud no hará cambiar mi preferencia."
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: "All"
Cons: "My USB connector didn’t work"
Pros: "This trip would have been another good experience for me flying with Iberia if it wasn't for the man that was sitting behind me. He didn't want me to recline my seat because he wanted to cross his legs... I told him that the guy in front of me had his seat reclined all the way and I wanted (sort of needed) to do the same, then he got aggressive with verbal abuse, called me names and he punched my seat. So I called the flight attendant and told her about the incident. She was nice and calm and told the man in a very respectful way that I wasn't doing anything wrong and he should not behave in an aggressive manner, etc. The man kept mumbling insults addressed to me while talking to his wife and making sure I was hearing it.... And he kept kicking my seat every now and then, and made a fuss every time he went to the toilet. He really ruined my flight experience to New York."
Pros: "Very bad organization Changed seats for everybody and no priority to board"
Cons: "Airline personnel were not helpful and seemed annoyed when asked questions about a very tight connection I was trying to make in Madrid. They brushed off my questions with one word answers and then it turned out that we were 10 minutes late arriving and I missed my connection. The customer service people who were supposed to re-book me, actually tried to blame me for missing the connection! Overall, not a great experience -- very inefficient process with no one at the airline taking responsibility. Won't fly again if I have the choice."
Pros: "Good on board movies."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher rows."
Pros: "The plane from Nashville was over an hour late so the flight was changed from Nashville-Philadelphia-London-Rome"
Pros: "Good short flight, we even arrived earlier at Bilbao."
Cons: "No food or drink."
Pros: "The plane arrived safely, it will get you where you want to go."
Cons: "Like everyone says, you are cattle jammed in a sardine can. Barely any leg room and I’m 5’3. Other thoughts: the plane was old, my seat had a lump in it, zero entertainment, food was over priced. (3 Euro for a tiny water). This may seem petty but ultimately the appearance and function of the plane represents their company as a whole. From my first impressions, I’m thinking as a passenger is: I just hope the age and appearance of the plane isn’t reflective of their repairs and maintenance work as well."
Pros: "Absolutely awesome, thanks for an excellent flight"
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: "The senior flight attendant was responsive."
Cons: "I paid for 2 tickets and 2 seats. My friend was ill but I didn't cancel her seat. I was not given the paid for aisle seat. I was given the middle seat and a last minute person was given my seat!"
Pros: "Flight was early to Madrid (i.e. shorter duration than planned)."
Cons: "Not enough discipline in the boarding process. No enforcement of the carry-on luggage policy. People were bringing on 3-4 small bags and taking all of the overhead space."
Pros: "Madrid airport was modern, clean & very welllaid out"
Pros: "Fast check in"
Cons: "NO HUBO ENTRETENIMIENTO, EL AVION NO LO TENIA. EL PASAJE SE SENTIA INTRANQUILO . Y ESO HACE QUEEL VIAJE RESULTE MUY MOLESTO. ALICIA"
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: "The ease at putting my luggage in.."
Cons: "The prices of the food and drinks!! Ripped off!!"
Pros: "747 has smaller cabins so even economy doesn't feel like cattle class."
Cons: "Standard food choices poor, chicken ran out after 5 rows. Mushroom risotto unrecognizable. Worth paying for an upgraded meal. Drinks service woeful, only 1 or 2 at seat services on 9.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Everything. I made a mistake in thinking sandwich was for free and flight attendant did not hesitate to take it back without charging me for it"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Iberia had outstanding service"
Cons: "They change the flight departure times on connection flights three time without notifying us. Because of that, we lost a connection flight between Paris and Seville. We had to spend the night in an airport hotel and buy new tickets for a morning flight. We lost our car rental reservation and hotel reservation in Seville we made 2 months prior with the consequent 50% increase in rate when we reissue them the day of arrival. WE WERE NEVER REIMBURSED. What is worse, there customer personnel at the airports (Paris and Seville) were rude and careless. They told us to file a complaint thru the website in Spanish because they did not know the address of the English site and because they said '"in Iberia customer service, nobody reads English"."
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?"
Cons: "Baggage lost."
