Pros: "Excellent!!! Booarding was quick. No long lines in the jetway. All around great service on board! 5 *****"
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight was very friendly and accommodating! They did their best with what they had. I also like that there were diabetic and vegetarian meals offered, although the diabetic meals should ideally focus on lower carbohydrate totals. Fruits and breads can pack just as much sugar as sweets."
Cons: "Starting with the boarding area at LAX, there was some really high pitched siren that kept going off over and over which no one seemed to care to investigate or do anything about. It was very irritating, and seemed to put lots of passengers in a bad mood before the plane even started boarding. Then when they announced boarding was beginning, everyone got up and created massed around creating four chaotic lines. It was a mess. We left 45 min late, which caused us to run to make our connecting flight because the person at the gate never told us it was also going to be leaving late. The plane itself was extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm 5'8" tall and that's mostly torso. I fit easily in the back seat of my buddy's mini Cooper, and I could barely fit in the space without my legs hitting the seat in front of me. That was before the guy in front of me put his seat back and made it so I could barely reach under my seat. Then there was the control panel for my personal video monitor. The panel was located on the armrest in just the right spot where Everytime I put my hand down I accidentally pressed a button to call the flight attendant, or turn the video screen on off, which was really obnoxious when I was trying to sleep and kept accidentally turning on the bright screen which woke me up. The video monitors we're also touch compatible, but the screen was horrible about registering finger presses which led to the lady in the seat behind me smashing the screen as hard as she could repeatedly with her finger, which vibrated all the was through my headrest so I could feel it as if she were trying to get my attention. There was also no air flow above the seats... You simply had to rely on the flight attendant to set a temperature that the whole cabin enjoyed, or you had to suffer silently. Finally, the reading lights on the plane we're so high up that turning one on lit up all the seats around you as well, which meant you had to choose to either sit in the dark and not read, or turn on your light and read quietly while the people around you cursed your name while attempting to get some rest."
Pros: "Lovely, can-do crew and generous beverage service, even in coach. Good movie."
Cons: "Sardines in a can. For 10 hours. Why do they let people recline? And this old 747 has been rode hard and put up wet. Lots of broken light switches, etc."
Cons: "It was great experience with them"
Pros: "Loved premium economy and great crew."
Cons: "Food was mediocre at best. For both meals food served did not match menu. Chicken at dinner was supposed to be thighs but were breasts. Omelette at breakfast was supposed to be with spinach and grilled tomatoes. No spinach and no tomatoes; only peppers and onions."
Pros: "New aircraft, clean, comfortable"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Everything. Though Frankfurt airport is big, it was smooth transition."
Pros: "Very clean"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. I enjoyed the flight, mostly because of them."
Cons: "In economy class, seats are packed tight"

Pros: "Boarding procedure: well organized Crew: very polite and supportive Seat comfort: good Extra bottles of water very good idea Selection of magazines: good"
Cons: "Blankets too small, material only mediocre Food: rather mediocre (not very tasty); limited choices; poor quality Entertainment: audio and video selection needs to be improved; not was I was looking for; movies too old"
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "I don't have my luggage yet!"
Cons: "Headsets and entertainment screen was old and the selections were poor"
Pros: "I like the flight from LAX to Frankfurt. Everything was comfortable and great service"
Cons: "The flight from Frankfurt to TLV was a joke. I paid a big a business class ticket. The business class was the same seats as coach the only thing is they have nobody sit next to you on a middle seat . That was not a comfortable seat. That was not a business size seat .very uncomfortable . No entertainment I will never fly with Lufthansa to Israel again I'm top of everything One of my surfboards got damaged badly and I have to file a claim in the airport. Very disappointed"
Cons: "Better boarding procedures. Everyone lined up at once and it took forever. What happened to boarding by rows? Also, paying an extra $35. for booking a seat is a total rip off. I usually fly Air France and have never had to buy a seat in coach."
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Pros: "The purser was very nice and professional, especially when some other crew members sometimes were not. Food was good and the seats were a bit less tight and narrow than in some other airlines."
Cons: "Our toddler kept pushing the call button, which was very hard to prevent. A first crew member told us to stop it without telling us how - which is quite difficult. Only the purser later helped us to find a solution by gluing something over it."
Pros: "The service was great. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats in Business class could be more comfortable. The padding in the seats was very hard"
Cons: "The most unpleasant flight attendants we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their training."
Pros: "everything was ok ."
Cons: "We booked our group of four with Lufthansa, paying $300 more than equivalent flights on competing airlines, specifically because our 20 month old daughter fits within Lufthansa's age, height, and weight limits for using the bassinet. We have reserved our tickets and the bassinet over two months in advance, paying $35 extra per seat for these reservations, and even got an email that specifically stated "bassinet confirmed". On the flight, when it came time to install the bassinets, the flight attendant came to us, took a look at our daughter, and said that she will not fit in the bassinet, that she is too tall, and too heavy, and suggested that we should have checked the limits for the bassinet before coming on the flight. When we inquired as to the actual limits, she could not provide any numbers, only said that she could see that our daughter is too big for it. When the family next to us got their bassinet, it became very obvious that our daughter would fit in the bassinet, and we pointed out that she was well below the height and weight limits published on the Lufthansa website. Only then did the flight attendant admit that there were other babies on the flight, and they only had four bassinets on the plane, despite having 11 slots where bassinets could be installed. Our reservation months in advance did not matter - we did not get the bassinet. As compensation, we were offered some Lufthansa miles, or 50 euros for in-flight duty free shopping. However, we lost close to 1000 dollars as a group when we chose to fly Lufthansa rather than a less expensive airline. We were very uncomfortable throughout the flight, having to hold my daughter in my arms for over five hours. We are are still very upset that the crew blatantly lied to us."
Pros: "This flight was 11 hours and I could have lasted another 2 or so hours."
Cons: "The lady who checks paperwork for animals at the front desk with Luftansa Airlines was uninformed and didn't know what she was doing as well as unnessarily rude. MY large dog was on this flight and after several employees had looked over my forms for him she came out nowhere and threatened to not allow my dog on board due to faulty and incomplete paperwork! I instantly went into a nervous condition of the sweats and scrambled to prove her wrong. When I asked again what was wrong with my (actually legitame paperwork) she just told me that at this point it didn't matter and that she would allow me to fly even though I was at risk of quarantine aty destination. I wasn't happy about this and asked again why there seemed to be an issue and she was unhelpful, handed me a business card for the USDA and told me that I was lucky to get away with her travel mercies for my dog. I had visited a USDA certified veterinarian and she hadn't given me the opportunity to prove this. I was confused and annoyed and while the other employees could see this about me, they apologized on her behalf. I really wish I had gotten this woman's name and work station so I could follow up with her and inform her on a few things. Other than that I love working with and flying Lufthansa airlines!"
Pros: "Crew frequently visited with wa"
Pros: "Overall okay. Glad to have made it on time."
Cons: "I was standing at the gate to enter the security check in forever."

Pros: "The entertainment was great"
Cons: "The tray was a bit close to my tummy."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Free wifi. Better movie selection"
Cons: "Surprised to find out that there was no rock/metal playlist available within music menu, considering that Finnish artists/bands are famous worldwide and very proficient in this genre."
Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Pros: "Seat reassignment went well. Lounge was a pleasant surprise (highly recommend if you fly out of / through Helsinki)"
Cons: "It makes little sense to be on a priority boarding, when you are checked-in, documents checked and …… then wait for 20 or so minutes standing on your feet waiting for actual boarding to begin"
Pros: "Helsinki is a convenient connection to fly to the U.S. One of Finnair planes was damaged earlier in Chicago and they used AirItaly to operate this flight. I was traveling with a recent wrist fracture and I was lucky I had an empty seat next to me that allowed me to move my arm a lot to avoid swelling."
Cons: "Our boarding was an hour and a half delayed"
Pros: "The flight was not crowded and that was a nice surprise for a transatlantic flight. Each passenger was offered a personal bottle of water upon boarding, cabin crew was very nice and professional. The flight was on time and we arrived at the airport of destination even ahead of time!"
Cons: "There was no soap in the toilet..."
Cons: "Unwashed pillow and blankets, stains on the pillow"
Pros: "All good. Very hospitable cabin crew, great service."
Pros: "I got an extra blanket."
Cons: "We waited on the runaway for 3 hours without any service, not a sip of water. When I finally arrived in Helsinki, I missed my connection to Riga and was rescheduled for a flight 6 hours later even though there were two flights leaving before then. Also I requested vegetarian meal online, but was not served vegetarian. They did not have any extras."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful"
Pros: "Good smooth flight, on time. No complaints"
Pros: "Check in staff at counter in Chicago was very friendly and saved my trip by safely keeping a critical document that I accidentally left behind on the counter. Really friendly and attentive flight attendants on the flight."
Cons: "Aging seats and interior of plane were showing badly and it downgraded the ambience of the flight."
Pros: "In cabin crew was good. Good service"
Cons: "Crew at gate wasn't really friendly. Made some of us check in our carry ons stating that the flight was full, but I found on the plane that there was tons of overhead space after everyone had boarded. I had a connecting flight to tallin for a conference and was nervous that my checked in carry-on wouldn't make it."
Pros: "All was great!"
Cons: "Not that I did not like it but it was more like a surprise to me to have not seen a single Finnish in the crew ... Again, nothing wrong, simple surprising..."
Cons: "Btw you have cancelled my flight!!!!!!!! And sent me just an email."
Cons: "You have canceled my flight and you have just sent me an email."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"
Cons: "No kiosk check-in? The airline definitely takes its making pasengers queuei for hours."
Pros: "Comfort?: had a fat neighbor whose elbow was in my robs"
Pros: "The Airbus 330 is an improvement over the Boeing 737 that took me to Europe (via Milan) on this trip. Unlike that flight, this plane is equipped with an updated on demand entertainment system. I attribute the upgraded airplane to the fact that this was a direct flight from HEL to JFK. Still no wifi though... Their magazine says it's coming. Upgrading to Economy Comfort is worth the fee especially if you get a bulkhead seat. Otherwise you are still pretty crammed in with maybe 6" more leg room. But the bulkhead seats are set well back from the wall to give my long legs plenty of room to stretch and get in and out of my seat. My friends in Economy looked miserable :( The chili con carne with rice was an improvement over other airline meals but still room for improvement - mostly in presentation I guess. Lingonberry 'salad' though a bit sour for me, was a nice Finnish dish to sample. Like the cheese and crackers. Departed and arrived on time. Liked the flight tracking that showed you very detailed what you were passing over and even gave us a bit of info and photos about highlights of each region flown over. Nice touch."
Cons: "This plane was such an improvement over the "bucket" that flew me to Europe that it has restored my faith in Finnair as a valid carrier for my yearly trip to Europe - like I said, probably because it is a direct flight to New York rather than connecting to another European (not Scandanavian) city like Milan. I would probably not use Finnair to access other parts of Europe for this reason. (On the departure end, the regional Finnair flight from Milan to Helsinki was also sub-standard.) I do think the check-in procedure is still cumbersome - self check in with bag check, though started at kiosks, still results in a long line just to hand off your bag to a counter agent. A few more agents would likely solve that problem... But it was better than going the other way - JFK was a nightmare! Helsinki only slightly better."
Cons: "Late arrival caused late departure for 1 hour."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was caotic. We were delayed boarding and arriving. No explanation. Meal selection ran out by row 46 (of 57?) Not choosing finnair to fly with again"
Pros: "Seats larger and more comfortablethan 3xpected."
Cons: "Food and drink overpriced."
Pros: "crew, food"
Cons: "Sat in row 53 of 55 rows, should have boarded in sections instead of everyone all at once. Could not sleep due to passenger behind kept jostling my backrest."
Pros: "Pleasant staff and crew."
Cons: "Tv screens are old and function very poorly."
Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."
Pros: "It was great to have some empty seats and a choice of seats."
Cons: "I have asked repeatedly for the airline to give out the boarding passes and check bags at least three hours before the flight. Between long lines, security checks and a limited amount of time from when we get our boarding passes, one can not enjoy Budapest Airport!"
Pros: "Crew staff pleasant although did not particularly take the initiative to help customers."
Cons: "Boarding process at Heathrow was chaotic. Could not hear announcements and the response was a large crowd pushing towards an unclear entrance point. The seats are quite small and recline a minimal amount My biggest complaint is that four of us traveling together could not be seated in close proximity to each other, despite making that request over four months before the flight. Extremely frustrating to deal with check-in process as well--because we booked on Finnair, we could not use online system. This was an aggravation considering we were traveling. And--one of our bags was left behind in London. \"
Pros: "Empty seat next to me! Excellent crew services! Clean bathrooms!"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall experience on the flight from London to Charlotte. The flight itself was very pleasant, the crew very accommodating, & the food, snacks & beverages very good. The entertainment provided was certainly suitable for my tastes & kept me occupied for the majority of the trip. There was also blackout time provided for sleeping. The seats were a little cramped, but overall I rate my experience as very good."
Pros: "Usually a 7 hours flight is a torture for me, but with their outstanding service I didn't notice how time flew by.The flight attendants were providing us with all necessary information about next connections."
Cons: "The meal time was a bit odd and there was no snacks served in between midnight full meal & breakfast which lasted for about 8hours"
Pros: "On time, good movies, good service."
Pros: "comfortable seats, meal was better than expected, in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "it's absurd to have to pay like $70 more for window seats"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Loading was like a cattle car. Drinks were slow to be offered. No drinks until after food was served more than one hour into the flight. No one ever seemed to check if I needed anything. When I did, there was no call-button. Seats were from the 90's and VERY narrow. I would NEVER pay for First/Business class on Finnair again. It was very poor."
Pros: "Polite and helpful crew and great entertainment systems."
Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."
Pros: "It was not Finnair it was all British airways."
Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "I paid an extra $90 to pick this seat. On the website it looked like an exit row seat with lots of room. However I couldn't really move out of my seat without climbing over others. It was a waste of $90."
Pros: "American Airlines executive club checking and boarding is quite good in an always packed airport"
Cons: "Very old plane. Not a nice crew."
Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."
Pros: "Brilliant direct flight"
Cons: "The cost could be a lot cheaper"
Pros: "On time arrival."
Cons: "FinnAir Entertainment selection was not as good as British Airways."
Cons: "Sat on runway for almost three hours. Delayed connection."
Pros: "Services, food, smooth landing."
Pros: "Despite the turbulence the pilot did his best and we had as solid of a ride as possible. Seats were very comfortable and flight was on time, couldn't ask for anything more!"
Pros: "It was a new plane."
Cons: "Flight was operated by IBERIA. I had to seat separately from my husband as IBERIA charges $45 for selecting the seat."
Pros: "Crew was not very helpful, last time I fly Iberia."
Cons: "The upgrade to World Traveler Plus was $330.00 and worthless. They assured me Business Class food service. NOT TRUE. You get the usual coach class prison-type food. Non-existent flight crew service (I got one mini can of Coke the entire flight). Cramped seat next to noisy bathroom. Whole experience was bad."
Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Pros: "ON time Flight"
Cons: "Better choice of food such as prepacked salads etc not just sandwiches"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "HOT. The plane was 90% of the time. It would tease you just long enough to start to fall asleep, then bam! You wake up in a sweat. It was 9.5 of 10 hours of a low boil sweat. The most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Apparently a known issue, including the condensation leaks on people sitting next to the window. (Guessing that's why the A/C was left off.) Also one of the bathrooms was quickly out of service. Another would auto flush if you tried to sit down. And another the green light was on whether occupied/locked or not. So 3 of 4 in Economy had at least some kind of malfunction. The power tinting windows never responded to the buttons - assumed they were on master override. Finally, the seats were pretty compact. I would describe World Traveler on BA (aka Economy) more like the new compact Basic Economy offered on other carriers. Seats were very small and leg room consumed by some kind of service boxes. I'm hoping to all things holy that our return flight is actually an American Air flight instead of BA direct. Really afraid of another 10+ hours of torture."
Pros: "Not being squeezed into a claustrophobic window seat."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "The title says it all"
Pros: "i was cold and i woke up to find an *extra* blanket on me. quickly unwrapped it and put it on and all good after that."
Cons: "ba website messed up our meal selections. luckily the staff were nice and gave us something suitable."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice"
Cons: "Felt packed in like a tin of sardines. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "Nearly everything. BA is about 30-40% of what it used to be"
Cons: "I did not like the food"
Cons: "very very short layover at London, had to run to the gate and almost didn’t make it. Only one of our two bags made it to Dublin. Not happy at all. Not sure if I will be booking with kayak again."
Pros: "Very smooth and fast."
Cons: "I did not like"
Pros: "Everything thank u"
Pros: "Good attitudes"
Pros: "Good food and service once on flight and again fixed connections before landing"
Cons: "Terrible boarding experience. Rude gate workers and almost two hour delay because of it"
Pros: "Food was OK"
Cons: "Seats are very narrow, distances between rows very short.’"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment Serbians beverages"
Cons: "There is no - zero - comfortable way to sit in economy on this plane. I'm a six foot tall man and getting in and out of the seats just to use the restroom (which were the smallest I've ever seen on any passenger jet), was nearly impossible. I will never fly this class on an Airbus 380 again."
Pros: "The crew courtesy was beyond any trip I have taken. The food was good: chicken tikka Masala. My mother was so happy with the trip experience."
Cons: "Even for small persons like me, the seat is a bit tight with the neighbor spilling over in my area"
Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."
Pros: "Ease of booking flights and you get what you paid for.. excellent!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!!!"
Cons: "No leg room!"
Pros: "Loved the wide selection of movies to watch, as well as being served two meals."

Pros: "They had a lot of entertainment options"
Cons: "I was skipped over when they served dinner"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. Food was quite good. Crew were helpful."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Flight was good. Crew kept us updated and tried to keep everyone happy."
Cons: "Catering truck hit landing lights so we had a 2 hour delay to get that fixed before we could take off."
Pros: "Nothing was bad. Take off to landing was great. Red wine was"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Pros: "Crew is super hospitable and nice"
Cons: "They lost my luggage after I asked when I checked it in LA and when I boarded in SD"
Pros: "First international flight. Did not know you are treated so well."
Cons: "That i am not able to sleep pn night flights. Not a problem of the airlines.Gail"
Cons: "The hour + delay leaving LAX AND DELAY again on landing"
Pros: "Good service with wheelchair assistance when needed. Early boarding made it easier for my husband."
Cons: "luggage didnt arrive"
Pros: "Not much to like. The crew was very good and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Food was terrible and seats were very uncomfortable. If you are over 6 feet tall you will not be comfortable."
Cons: "Airplane food"
Cons: "smallest coach I have ever been in. very squished and I was next to my wife at 95 lb and a skinny young man who took no room at all. I am only 5'9" 170. But thats how the flights get so cheep"
Cons: "Nothing that was good."
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Cons: "It was actually a flight operated by American Airlines, and I am done with this company. Not comfortable, rude staff and more than average food."
Pros: "We paid extra ($260) to sit on top.The arrangement was nice. I had a panic attack because I felt stifled and my asthma was bad because the lady in front of me put new perfume on each time she went to the restroom. Staff helped keep me on the galley and talked to me to keep me calm. The stewardess was from Spain, but I've forgotten her name. Nice lady."
Cons: "Late. Flight left late out of LAX. We missed our connection...again. We've taken BA many times and always get stuck in London. You have to be bussed everywhere and go through security again, even in the same terminal! We ended up up in the International Holding Pen for 4 hours waiting for the next flight with 2 small kids. Again. Last time we received €800 for our inconvenience. This time we got £20 for food for a family of 4. Yuck."
Pros: "Food was decent and entertainment was okay."
Cons: "Plane was extremely old and loud. London did not have a gate number until 20 minutes before boarding. Many people were late to the gate because of that."
Pros: "Good information from the pilots. Very clean plane. Food ok. Seat pitch better than the American Airlines flight the other direction."
Cons: "Flight attendants disinterested or in the case of an older male flight attendant, impatient and rude."
Pros: "I especially liked our seats (we were in the exit row and had plenty of leg room); the crew, and the food."
Cons: "What we didn't like couldn't be helped: there were crying babies and a snorting gentleman."
Pros: "Hello I saw charged the ticket twice !!!! Thank you"
Pros: "Nice spacious seats"
Cons: "That you checked my carry-on"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for more than 3 hours, nothing was communicated, I still don't know what caused it, as a result I missed my connection and NONE of the British Airways employees EVER even apologized, since it wasn't and I quote 'personally' their fault."
Cons: "Terrible service, delayed flight, lost luggage, no apologies and no accountability. I was delayed for 12h, had to stay the night in a hotel in London (the hotel was the best part) but I had to freeze since I didn't have my luggage or expect to be in London at that time."
Cons: "Crew need to be smile - we not in Russia"
Cons: "Fly on time"
Pros: "Check in process was fast and easy!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nothing outstanding comes to mind. TAP Portugal was a million times more hospitable and accommodating."
Cons: "They allowed us to check a bag, without telling us that it definitely would not make it to our next stop on time. Almost all the passengers on our plane had to return the next day to collect our bags, at our own expense. This had happened to the flight before us too. There were no apologies to us"
Cons: "The seats are amazingly narrow and uncomfortable for 5 hours flight."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and we made great time all the way from LAX to Madrid (I only had carry-on luggage so I can’t speak for their check-in process). Loved having a non-stop flight. Crew was attentive and professional. Great new movie selection. The one bathroom I went into was probably the largest airplane bathroom I’ve ever been in!"
Cons: "However, I would have taken a smaller lavatory if it meant larger/comfier seats! I was pretty uncomfortable the whole flight. The leg room was alright for me being 5’6” but I’m not sure how anyone much taller would fare. The seats themselves were similar to a budget domestic airline. Fine when you’re only going a few hours, but on a transatlantic flight it really started to get to my back :("
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfort during flight."
Cons: "Confusion at time of boarding."
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: "Our flight was subcontracted through another airline, Level, so my comments are related to Level."
Cons: "I called the airline a week before our departure regarding the baggage fee. I was assured the fee was included in the price. However, at the time of check in, I was charged a $55 checked bag fee."
Cons: "Missed my flight while waiting on a wheelchair. The lady was rude and yelling at customers because she didn't have what she needed to do her job."
Cons: "In LAX the boarding was unorganized and confusing to board a bus to be transported to the plane."
Cons: "The cramped space"
Pros: "Good crew in providing good service with a smile. Smoth take off, flight and landing Good choices in dinner with wine"
Cons: "Below avera ge breakfast with no hot items besides cofee/ tea Poorly organized boarding. Staff person with the microfone and staff controlling the lne were not in sink, gave confusing instructions. Too much noise in the abin with the lights out due to the presence of lots of high schoolers talking Distance between seats kind of small"
Pros: "Food, entertainment (great monitors), new cabins."
Pros: "Small, easy airport. Less picky security than some."
Cons: "Older, more worn-out plane."
Pros: "The flight has enough leg room considering I'm 6ft. The entertainment was world class. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendant was slightly rude. The food was not so good. Every meal they had, had cheese in it."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. I appreciated the blanket, headphones, and pillow. One of the staff was very rude to the gentleman next to me because he asked for tea after she passed by with it the first time."
Pros: "The staff was OK for the most part. I liked the entertainment options and WIFI service was easily accessible."
Cons: "The seating was pretty bad. My seat couldn't recline (was in the last row) and the passenger in front of me reclined all the way back even when instructed to not recline so far (in passing, by flight attendants). So I spent an 11+ hour flight as a fairly tall person, in an extremely uncomfortable seating arrangement. I also noted my space issue with said passenger at the beginning of the flight and he still progressively went further back. I would've appreciated if flight attendants were more diligent about ensuring passengers are comfortable for long flights. Food accommodations were ok but they go heavy on bread for whatever reason."
Pros: "I liked the Crew they were very patient with all the passengers. They were bunch of really annoying kids in front of me and handled them very professionally."
Cons: "I didn't like that I could not control the air in business class. I spent good money to sit up there and I would expect to have control of the air because I had a 11 hr flight in a 90 degree plane. It was really a uncomfortable. Also I didn't like that their was no sporting events or cooking channels to watch on my flight and the movie selection were horrible."
Pros: "Nice people. New air plane Good movie Excellent service"
Cons: "Poor film and tv selection, the majority from Fox. That's very limiting. Ear buds very bad quality w sound inly comeing through one bud."
Pros: "Good and beverage selection was great"
Cons: "Delayed departure I'm 6'4" and business seat is small Also crew should improve kindness and attention."
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Cons: "It was not British Airways, they put us on Iberia."
Pros: "Overall I give the flight an average score, I like that everything was attended in a service oriented manner."
Cons: "I didn't like the aspect of lack of order at the airport specially when boarding, crew seemed a bit lost for a second there. In some respects I felt the plane had a dated feel to it; but then, I've never flown with Iberia before."
Pros: "Seat location"
Cons: "Staff was slow. Dirty food tray left at seat for over an hour. Food was terrible"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "I could not cross my legs and my purse would not fit under the seat. Very uncomfortable flight. Fortunately they had a good selection of movies and TV shows to watch"
Pros: "The only part of this flight that was good was when I deplaned at the end"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We sat in the plane waiting for 1.5 hours. Passengers were not addressed as to why we were not moving. During this time the air conditioning was off and it was too hot. The crew was very rude and nowhere to be found most of the flight. I was extremely thirsty and crew was upset when I asked for water"
Pros: "On time, great service"
Cons: "The lack of leg room and comfort of chairs"
Pros: "Everything flowed very smoothly desite the fact I had an irregularly shaped carry on. It was no problem, Staff were positive and acomodating and that lead to passengers being accommodating to each other. The intertainment was great, the only draws back is that I slept most of the time and wanted to watch another movie."
Cons: "That I had to bother the person sitting next to me to get up when I wanted to go tot the bathroom, but he was very accommodating"
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew, Iberia has the most beautiful bears on board! So handsome guys on beard!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were next to the bathroom in the middle of the plane and passengers have no regard for your comfort. They lean on your seats, leave the stinky bathroom door open constantly-causing me to get up and close it at least 4 times during a 9.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Pros: "The fly was on time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours. Entertainment was non-existent. They offered us pretzels which is hardly an inspiring food choice. Prior to boarding the airplane the alarm got triggered in the gate were waiting in, took over 10 min for them to deactivate it. Staff were seen just casually standing around."
Cons: "the flight over LAX to Madrid was horrible. An old plane, both my husband and I had broken seats, no screens, and no charging capability. The flight from MAD to LAX was much better with a newer plan. I would however, not fly with Iberia again, because the out bound flight was so awaful. So average rating is okay."
Pros: "The flight overall was very comfortable and the crew were very accommodating and attentive."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight got diverted to drop off a critically ill passenger, so instead of it being an 11 hour flight, it was a 16.5 hour flight. Not anyone's fault, but still incredibly inconvenient."
Pros: "Direct flight with good entertainment system if you fly in one of the newer airplanes."
Cons: "Poor service. It seems most if not all Iberia staff are not happy to work for this airline, and definitely hot happy to work with people. My kids asked a few times why those people were upset (regarding both flight crew as well as ground crew). Online services to request seat assignments does not work. We tried to get seat assignments over the phone, and it seems Iberia only picks up the phone if you going to purchase a ticket, otherwise forget about getting help over the phone, and/or online (email as well as website). After trying to obtain child menus over the website and phone, I drove to the airport Iberia desk to order it there two days before the flight. The desk manager was helpful and requested for us to send an email with the request, so he could set it up once the flight opened up two days before the flight. I sent out the email to find out on the flight once food service started that the request was never placed."
Cons: "When I got on the plane there was urine on my seat and no one told me before I sat down. DISGUSTING"
Pros: "The organization, the food, the beverages the stewardesses all were pretty bad, even the flight was late the boarding process was bad, I would not use them again."
Pros: "Free entertainment (movies and games) during the 12 hour flight as well as 2 meals and one snack."
Cons: "Received 2 ham and cheese sandwiches (which became tiresome)...maybe an alternative like pb&j sandwich should be offered."
Cons: "Hard to see how anything could have been done about this, but on my flight every seat was taken (except the one next to me) so I thought I'd have a little extra leg room....NOT!!! Then a 300-lb guy sits in the seat next to me. So for 11 hours I'm trapped by this guy's huge bulk and it was difficult to move my legs around any; very unpleasant. And I paid $45 to get that window seat instead of my original seat that had been randomly assigned!! I wish that airlines provided a couple seats for tall people, because our height is a kind of disability given the cramped seating (which average height people complain about)."
Cons: "The crew were not friendly; they were kind of brusque. They didn't smile much, and seemed annoyed by passengers."
Cons: "Not only was the audio broken so we couldn't hear the movie, but our overhead light was broken (all around) so we couldn't read. Service was terrible; attendants seemed irritated at small requests. We'll never fly Iberia again"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Lost luggage for now 2+ days costing me a lot of money to try to enjoy the trip and a friends wedding."
Pros: "That agents had another flight scheduled in case we missed our connection due to delay."
Cons: "That we were unable to make the connection, missed by only a few minutes which seems like more could have been done to help us get on. Would have liked to be given access to VIP lounge to relax and use wifi to communicate to others our delay to let them know we were okay. Voucher for lunch was at limited vendors, not easy to use. No water in toilet for washing, out of toilet paper."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The food was inedible, and there was no individualized in-flight entertainment, which usually comes standard on international flights now."
Pros: "Great experience, comfort and crew."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Chocolates were very nice."
Cons: "Come on guys for the price of the ticked you could have served us something more than a sandwich."
Cons: "Cabin crew were arrogant and didn’t allow us to storage our backpacks in the over head cabins."
Cons: "I requested Asian vegetarian meal and I got regular vegetables and some products used by people with Celiac problems, even the wrapping of the "fake" bread says that it was for people with celiac problems. I tried three monitors and none worked properly. Any way with the poor selections of movies I did not miss it. I only missed it because I like to watch the flying statistics."
Pros: "The crew wasn’t very friendly and there’s very little legroom."
Pros: "Not really something. It was an old cabin. The seat was confortable and the food was ok. Some of the crew were nice others not that much."
Cons: "The cleaning of the toilets. Awful and without water and soap. The restrooms were not clean from the beginning. It was disgusting. Having new cabin."
Pros: "too crowded , not organised enough"
Cons: "Boarding was awful"
Pros: "Crew was okay."
Cons: "That your airline commit to schedules."
Pros: "The ticket was affordable."
Cons: "It was not clear who was or wasn’t supposed to get meals so I only got a breakfast but no dinner. Also the flight was absolutely freezing and no offer of blankets was made."
Cons: "To be given a blanket. And better choice in music"
Pros: "All was planned, no surprises, on time and no hassles"
Cons: "Keep it as it is. No need to fix what is not broken. Just reduce the very expensive prices that Brussels Airlines charge for its economy class tickets"
Pros: "Made up tons of time en route."
Cons: "Usual 737 narrow-ish seat issues. Turbulence, but not a problem anyone could control."
Pros: "After our first flight had been cancelled, we needed to be comforted by Brussels Airlines that our return flight would be OK. And we were. Though there were slight delays due to technical checks at boarding time, everything else was on schedule and we even landed slightly ahead of time, never a bad thing. The flight was smooth and quite pleasurable. Now we are prepared to experience flying with Brussels Airlines again."
Pros: "Crew were super helpful and friendly. Food was above average for airline food. It was all on schedule. On my return trip - knowing already the confusion with the exit row seat which I explained here, they switched me to the correct exit row without a problem or charge."
Cons: "I tried to book exit row seats online. The seat map would not load, so I called the number suggested. Had a long a confusing conversation with a woman who did not seem to understand what an exit row seat was. I booked seats, but my card was never charged and I received no email confirmation. I tried the website again and this time saw the seat map. Completely misleading. The real exit row is the row IN FRONT of the marked exits on the map. I chose the row which looked like an exit row, and on boarding found that I was in the row behind the exit row. The flight attendant took a photo of my seat map print out, because it was so confusing!!! No wonder the woman I spoke to sounded like she didn't know what she was talking about - she was following the seat map too!"
Pros: "Attentive helpful and cheerful staff: on time"
Cons: "Terrible. Long delays caused me to miss connecting flight and a wedding. Lufthansa decided 12 hours of my day and the missed ceremony was worth a 5 euro voucher... Never flying german again."
Pros: "Great wheel chair service"
Cons: "Polite customer service agent"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Not enough beverage service. Only had the chance for 1 glass of wine with meal. Would have liked a water station set up so that you can help yourself whenever needed. Boring/very limited movie selection."
Pros: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "Everything about the flight."
Pros: "Ok flight."
Cons: "My luggage bag was lost, which contained my entire life."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Beside for the music and movies, you should give us the possibility to make a search and find what we want to watch or listen"
Pros: "in time food good good sleep multiple languages spoken by the announcer"
Cons: "the movies - music background to loud couldnt here what they were saying and most of the movies no subtitles"
Pros: "Nice planes"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and I still haven't received it"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food was rubbish"
Cons: "It was late both going to Prague and coming back. Then on this flight the stewardess tried to tell me that I could not put my bag on the bin on top of my head - she was reserving it for other passengers! Then she realized that her comment might sound racist (so she apologized), then she told me that I could not put my small bag under the chair. Finally I told her that she is certainly looking for a way to get me off the flight to which she answered "I can certainly find something!!!" Cultural sensitivity is needed with these stewardesses who are racist like I don't understand and I was certainly polite!"
Cons: "Paid extra to secure aisle seat booking, reconfirmed byne two days before flight, at check-in was reassigned to a middle seat, without explanatiob or apology. Had to be uncomfortably adamant about paid aisle seat reservation for them to put me in one of the several still available."
Pros: "They gave us a pillow and blanket so we could sleep. They offered a good selection of movies and other entertainment. The airline staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seating was cramped but all airlines treat their three class clients like cattle."
Pros: "Due to horrendous traffic we got to the airport after check-in but before the plane took off, but they would not let us board and would not allow us to transfer tickets for even any fee. They will not let us use our return tickets either. Is this how you do business? I'm totally disheartened and disgusted by the lack of customer service or even care."
Cons: "We missed.our flight and no one would work with us to reschedule or refund even a partial refund. We missed out flight due to terrible traffic and now we are out $2500 this is terrible."
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "Food was bad. Seats not very comfortable. Food was awful. Very few movies in English."
Cons: "The transatlantic flight from JFK took off about an hour late and we missed the connecting flight. This was very disappointing since half of the people on our flight were gong to Munich and I would have expected the airline to hold the plane for an extra 15 - 20 minutes so we could have made the flight. Instead, an almost empty plane must have taken off on time and we are only able to fly to Munch 5 hours later. Unacceptable from Brussel Airlines / Lufthansa. They should not sell this connection as a flight to Munich or should have held the plane."
Pros: "Every person was friendly."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "No much choice of Movies in the entertainment program"
Pros: "Whatever positive experience we had was overwhelmed by careless handling of our luggage."
Cons: "Luggage nor sent from Brussels to Florence. On day 2 they had no clue where our 2 pieces were. Both pieces were bar-coded and there was. File complaint number did not help. we travel regularly and it has been many years sine we had luggage problems."
Pros: "Everything was generally good. Food was slightly below average."
Cons: "Neither the JFK counter agents nor the flight attendants knew if I could transition in Brussels onto Bulgaria Air without exiting and re-entering. In fact, it is a simple process in the Brussels Airport transition zone, with the friendly help of Bulgaria Air agents. Breakfast is a box of sugar: shrink wrapped muffin, Toblerone bar, orange juice. These are all sugar delivery systems."
Pros: "Be on time"
Cons: "Food, no comfort, movies and music boring"
Pros: "I was able to get home the next day rerouted with Lufthansa and they did provide a hotel and gave us a 15$ voucher."
Cons: "Missed an important day of work. Sat in the airport for 5 hours with little to no comunication from staff. They would constantly tell us they will make an announcement in 5 minutes but never had. JFK Terminal 1 is very unconfortable so that made the stay worse. The problem I had was with the fact that they could not tell us straight we are not going to fly."
Pros: "We are not frequent fliers and I have been reading about legroom problems. Certainly not on Brussels Air. A delight."
Cons: "Complete desinfprmation. No announcements and lack of support stuff. Worst airline experience ever"
Cons: "the cabin crew refused to serve any drinks until they served food and they were only serving front to rear, rather than front & rear to middle. as i was sat right at the rear of the plane it meant i didn't get anything to drink for 30-40 minutes. i thought delta were poor on that front but these guys were ridiculous. as for the food: i don't expect much from airlines but i don't consider cake & toblerone to make a breakfast, even if it was served with orange juice."
Cons: "The on flight entertainment and the very few meals. (In the second flight, there was not even offered coffee!)"
Pros: "The airline insisted I check my bag because it was 2lbs over the weight, but it was an empty flight. We had a transfer in Brussels where some how the tags on the bags were not there and we were without a luggage for 5 days. I feel that the Venice airport claim was horrible as they seem to misplace luggage alot and on our transfer flight they fave us the wrong carousel. The service on the plane was great. But that was it."

Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "none really, it was fine."
Pros: "Flight was on-time"
Cons: "Cabin's temperature was too warm. Breakfast was just a cheap muffin and orange juice..."
Cons: "Seats had no cushioning on bottom or back"
Cons: "Baggage handling"
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "I didn't get a window seat. theyou could have done a lot better than just a muffin for breakfast. the crew skipped me for tea"
Pros: "We don't know. Ask our suitcases. They arrived in Venice and we were in Athens."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly; food was decent; seats were not that comfortable and a bit too close ; in flight entertainment was okay; bathrooms okay but could be cleaner"
Cons: "uncomfortable poor video selection"
