Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"

Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."

Cons: "The flat bed is narrow and VERY hard."

Pros: "Everything! Very professional, great food"

Cons: "Checked in online. Needed to drop my snowboard bag off. I had 2 hrs...got in the express line to drop bags with ticket. They kept taking people from every other line in front of us. Took 1 hr to drop a bag. Got through security line and told my boarding pass is no good. 30 min before flight. Back to Swiss. Have a meltdown and finally they help. Now I’m in Geneva and my bags in Zurich..."

Pros: "We did finally take off for our trip and get to our destination. The movies were tremendous help to pass the time. The food was delicious for hungry tired people"

Cons: "They rebooked me on a later flight this same day. This flight to Geneva (change of airports) was late and the flight to Vienna took off with no passengers from our flight, after we were told it would wait. ' I paid for premium seats and did not get rebooked for the same. I am sitting in the Geneva airport for 7 and 1/2 hours, losing my meetings in Vienna. I never expected such poor service from Swissair."

Pros: "The crew took very good care of us with food and drinks"
Cons: "Updates by the captain about the situation were too few, too infrequent."

Pros: "It reminds me of school dinners"
Cons: "Bland, over cooked No thought into the presentation or flavour"

Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "While I was on line to board, a flight assistant came to me and asked me if I was flying by myself. When I said yes. they upgraded me to business class. I boarded the plane and took my seat. Shortly before taking off, another flight attendant came to me, told me they made a mistake, and sent me back to my original economy seat (while I was holding my new business boarding pass that they gave me). When I told them they should remedy somehow their mistake, they said they did not have any other extra seat in business and that there was nothing they could do. They did not apologize. They were quite unprofessional and rude. I fly often and I have never experienced something so unprofessional and rude. Alitalia is far better than Swissair in terms of professionalism and of politeness. I will always discourage anyone from flying Swissair. Worst company ever."

The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines).

The flight to Amman was cancelled/delayed. First we were told it was cancelled and would be put up in a hotel, but on the way the wheelchair driver was asked to return to office and drop us at a gate. At this gate the departure time kept changing every hour or so without any plane at the gate, or staff. This lasted till next day about 3 PM. For this long period There was no water. The was no assistance to bathroom or food or water. All the passangers were upset. They organized and went to talk to the Airline personnel.

Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "1. There was no beverage service before the meal - that's new to me (travelled 4x around the globe, mostly with LH 2. It took 3 people to open the meal seal with the plastic knife ... 3. You need a written contact with your neighbor about the foot placement - space is so narrow, you need to take turns if you would like to come off the plane without back injuries 4. New custom: serve coffee AFTER breakfast 5. Nobody walked around with water or juice between the meals - you had to wake your neighbor since climbing over someone is no longer possible [either] 6. If you have 2 beverages on your tray and your neighbor needs to get out, you need a third person to assist (impossible to get out of your seat with 2 beverages in your hands (we tried it!) - just too narrow (even for a European Teenager) 7. It was not clearly visible who boards where. An Economy couple standing patiently in line at the Wong boarding line was sent back to the end of the long economy line - although NOBODY was in the business line"

Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."

Pros: "Wasn’t Lufthansa, was Singapore Airline from Ny to Frankfurt.Was excellent definitely."

Pros: "The plane, entertainment and crew (except for the one flight attendant who seemed to think she was too good for the job). The personal at the airport were very helpful."

Pros: "I said everything in another evaluation"

Pros: "It could be better, the flight attendance one of them was overwhelmed and I could feel her attitude, although she made an accidental movement on my foot she never apologized. And her eye contact was very aggressive as if she would use words. I tried to save the moment, and avoided all further interactions. Not even to look at her, or accept even a single glass of water. She did past through my area and again she was stocked with her cart, and she thought is was my foot again. When she realized that this time was not my foot, (which in the first time it was and she kicked my knee with the speed of her movement and I was not aware to save the moment) nevertheless, the second time and for the rest of my trip I was so careful that it did not happen again. But it happened one more time, but not with my foot. although she thought it was me. She looked at me again with a very bitter-eye but when she realized that the problem was not me she looked at another way acting as if she didnot understand what was going through her mind or my mind."
Cons: "The attidute is what I try not to get involved. I am on the air, traveling, and I don't like to experience any negative feelings from no one. I am consciously aware not to give any reasons for any form of unacceptable behaviors either with or without evidence. I WILL NOT EVER AGAIN, travel with LUFTHANSA just because of the way they treated me in my case which I travel always with my emotional pet, and this time they gave me a hardship and I had to travel without Logan. and additionally to this, I had to accept that flight attendance wordless aggressive behavior. Which in my opinion, I believe she could say I am sorry, and not looking at me as her worse enemy. Madness. She honestly needs a psychological evaluation."

Cons: "Things I don't like: 1. My seat was the 1st-row aisle seat. OMG, the seat is extremely small, my legs were very very uncomfortable. I would rather sit another regular seat instead of the 1st-row aisle seat. Usually, I sleep on the plane during whole flight, but this time I could not sleep at all. 2. There was a curtain which separates the business class and economic class. As the 1st point, my seat was the 1st-row aisle seat, so the curtain hit me every time the crew went through the curtain, which is extremely annoying. 3. The Entertainment screen is so difficult to use, either hard to touch or so slow."

Pros: "Everybody was very courteous and tried to accommodate us and our baby!"

Pros: "Terrific staff, efficient process"
Cons: "Bathrooms weren't working"

Cons: "We never flew out !! We're still at the airport! Please help us! We have to be in Spain by Saturday"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "The stewards did their jobs well."
Cons: "Our departure was severely delayed due to airport and aircraft crew errors. This meant that I missed my connecting flight in Munich, had to endure an extended lay over, board an extra flight to Budapest and endure an even more unbearable lay over there before being able to reach my final destination in Athens. I paid for a one-stop flight and have ended up having to endure a two-stop flight with extended lay overs. I feel completely cheated out of my money and overall have had a terrible experience."

Pros: "Handling crew was great . Seat was comfortable!!! Meal was very good and tasty"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I had a very short (perfect timing) stopover on my way to Bucharest."
Cons: "Dirty plane, apparently not cleaned from the previous flight, since there were crumbs everywhere on the floor.... Unfriendly crew, non accommodating, not helpful, or not even following on questions/ requests from passengers. I don't expect a luxurious meal for an economy class ticket, but the food could have been better ( and it is - with other airlines). Some fresher bread - and more eatable - would have been very good. The movie selection was poor - only old, badly rated movies. I know it can be way better than this - with other airlines. Overall I was unpleasantly surprised - very surprised."

Pros: "All. Excellent experience."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything was excellent except breakfast from joke to Fra"
Cons: "Breakfast one choice including ham which unrespect to Muslims"

Cons: "My son Adam is in Mekele Ethiopia having flown most of his journey with Lufthansa. For two days now, his luggage with his nebulizer and asthma medications has gone missing and not ONE person at Lufthansa is willing to help on their end. Since his last leg was with Ethiopian Airlines, Lufthansa is unwilling to help in any fashion or form in helping to track the luggage that flew with them over two flights. They DENY they have any responsibility to help because it's not their "policy." They wouldn't even look into their computers to see where the luggage was last seen. I am so angry that "policy" is more important to Lufthansa than actual human caring about their passengers."

Pros: "The staff at check in was very helpful!! Great service!"
Cons: "You need to pay $35 per seat to reserve."

Pros: "The crew was personable"
Cons: "Not enough recent television"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Small leg space"

Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous. USB charger"
Cons: "2 hr delay. Auxiliary battery crashed. Mediocre food. Poor wine. Limited entertainment"

Pros: "So many movies!"

Cons: "Good connection in Madrid and nice flight to Malaga. It was a long walk to get to the connection"

Pros: "The time arrived at the airport was great"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, had to wait too long for shuttle bus to the terminal."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival early by an hour."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "Tenía reservado uno y de repente desaprecio"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Space"

Cons: "Seats switched from together with my wife on our honeymoon to seperate.Rrude front desk staff."

Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Crappy plane for an international flight"

Cons: "Lost our luggage"

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: "Service!"

Cons: "Our seats was almost the last seat of all our flights, even we checked in very early."

Cons: "I paid for wifi and I could not use it. There was a problem with the connexion. So, I paid for nothing"

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: "No complaints everything was good No delays on time flights going and returning back"

Pros: "It wAs on time"
Cons: "NOthing"

Pros: "Great array of entertainment. The food was tasteful."
Cons: "No clear direction when attempting to board. Several passengers were unaware of what to do. Couldn't find the reclining button."

Pros: "That we at least got some water"
Cons: "The gate changes, the late start, bad or no info or help from front desk or onboard personnel regarding your connections"

Pros: "I liked the service and, the in flight entertainment system. It was good food."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy class. I was thinking for an overseas flight the would be more than 31 inches pitch of legroom, Mabye the can work on that on such a big plane."

Pros: "Excellent meal in premium economy. As good as business class on other airlines"
Cons: "Boarding process is excrutiating"

Pros: "Crew entertainment food."
Cons: "2 hours late. Missed connection in Madrid. Waiting 4 hours for next flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I left a day later. No effort made to change flight."

Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Due to delay of previous flight I missed my connection for which I had a 3 hour layover prior to delays. I was put on another flight out of LGA upon arrival but was not given a travel voucher even though I was told tmi had one in my envelope. Trying to get someone to issue a voucher almost made me miss my new connection."

Pros: "Landing was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "It was fine, nothing special"
Cons: "The internet was very, very expensive! $35 for very very slow internet that didn't work half of the time. Also, before I departed from the US, the customer service rep at JFK made me purchase a refundable plane ticket for $2500, and charged me a non refundable fee of $35 for booking the flight for me ( I asked how to do it via the Iberia website on my phone and she refused to help me, and the website makes it extremely not obvious how to book a refundable flight). She said because my flight was one way to Europe I had to have an onward flight, even though I was traveling by car outside of Europe. She said that they would ask me for it at customs when I arrived in Europe. Well they have never asked me for this before, and they did not ask me this time either when I arrived, so this whole exercise was pointless. When I called to get my ticket refunded, they also charged me a $25 fee for refunding the ticket, which the agent in NY did not tell me about. So I just ate $60 for no reason. In addition, the customer service person was very rude about the whole thing."

Cons: "The airline put me on standby for my connecting flight without telling me at anypoint until I was at the gate. I lost a day of vacation and instead had to wait in Madrid for 4hrs, fly to a neighboring city, and then take 2hr bus to my final destination."

Pros: "On time to madrid... late to Alicante"
Cons: "Personal video screen froze and didnt work...chicken meal was too salty. Britisk airways cancelled our return transatlantic flight LGW to JFK and the Iberia (one world) representative Alicante airport could not help us getting on another flight we now are landing in LGW and have to transfer to LHR at iour own expense and are getting to J FK almost 4 hour later than scheduled...spenrt over 40 minutes on phone with British airways at international cell phone rates which also cost us a fortune"

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "The only bad thing is that the checking at JFK was very long!!!!"

Cons: "Delays delays delays!!! Terrible!! We were waiting 7 hours!! No compensation was offered!"

Cons: "We were in JFK for over 24 hours being lied to and being promised that our flight to Madrid although late would leave that day. We were changed from boarding door to boarding door, we were told that there were no hotel rooms available in New York that they could place us in and told that they were testing a plane and as soon as it was confirmed it could fly we would be on it. At approx. 1am or a little after we (the passengers) from the flight were located at boarding door 7 and they brought an Iberia plane right by the windows in hopes that we would be put at ease at the sight of a possible flight only to find out that there are no flights out of JFK after 1am. The lies they told and or lack of truths was very frustrating"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "We didn't start boarding until the scheduled departure time. Made my connection much tighter than it needed to be."

Pros: "Lie-flat seats were very comfortable. Flight was quite smooth. Left late but arrived on schedule. Wine was very good."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. IFE was so-so. Baggage handling was very slow on arrival."

Cons: "Missed my connection because they weren't super clear about the gate and then just kept me on standby. Would have liked to have had some options, like actually booking my flight so maybe I could have explored Madrid on my 9 hour layover after missing my flight by 4 minutes. And then they kept me shuttling back and forth while doing this. I went through security 4 times."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible Uncomfortable Overbooked"

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"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Pretty hassle free. Our flight wasn't completely full which helped. International flight so food was served as well as complimentary wine and beer. Would fly with them again."

Pros: "the food and the entertaiment"
Cons: "long trip"

Pros: "Crew was nice enough."
Cons: "Boarding started very late and left airport late, somehow landed "on time" but without enough time or guidance to make connecting flight. Although arrived at gate before schedule flight time, were not allowed to board, missing the connecting flight and was then charged a ludicrous amount in fees. Will never travel again."

Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"

Cons: "It was cancelled"

Pros: "It got me hone."
Cons: "Very small seats we were not given any snacks or drinks."

Pros: "Excellent flight. Iberia had outstanding service"

Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."

Cons: "We took the red eye and there were children that would not stop screaming and crying. This was not your usual crying infant. These children were able to speak. The crew did nothing about it and let these children yell and scream as they played games on the provided tv. Most of the people on the flight were displeased by this family that made so much noise."

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Pros: "It was on time and good selection on movies"
Cons: "Iberia needs new aircrafts... They are always kinda old..."

Cons: "Put in standby, even with reservation. Choppy fight."

Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination. The crew was sympathetic to the plane's deficiencies."
Cons: "The reading lights didn't work. The movie had no sound. The charging station was outdated. The food was terrible"
