Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "That every person we spoke to since getting notification the original flight was delayed lied to us and misled us and failed to help us. Our vacation was completely ruined by booking with this airline."
Pros: "simply everything was excellent"
Pros: "Greatly flight attendants --- if you don't mind being treated nicely after being treated like dirt on ground Greatly flight attendants --- if you don't mind being treated nicely after being treated like dirt on ground"
Cons: "Flight delayed, gave the wrong gate info in Istanbul and no one bothered to post any signs. Unhelpful and rude staffs on the ground. Asked for help and they treated you like dirt.

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "By far the strangest plane I've ever flown on and definitely not what you expect for a long international flight. The seats were so close together and the aisles were really narrow. It was like taking a spirit airlines flight for 10 hours. I later flew domestic on Turkish airlines and that flight was much better."
Pros: "Flight was on time. The crew was very courteous and helpful. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "I'm tall, so the seats did not have a lot of leg room in economy."

Pros: "The flight was slightly comfortable, there were more food and snacks options than in other aircraft companies."
Cons: "Some of the crew were very rude, making a point to show you that they were hassled by serving you. I thought that was poor service. The seats weren't all working so while the passenger in front of me reclined, my seat wouldn't making for a very uncomfortable flight. I thought the entire aircraft needed either renovation or retirement altogether. Old TVs and non-functioning seats, all made me kind scared of where I was tbh."
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Pros: "Overall the experience was good with friendly staff."
Cons: "My luggages where ruined and there was heavy rain. The luggages where left out instead of being protected l, damaging clothing and the luggages themselves."

Pros: "The flight was good. The food was good and the air hostesses were courteous. There was fair leg space in the economy flight and entertainment was also good. However, the negatives far outweighed these positives."
Cons: "The layover arrangements were a shame. No proper accommodation was provided despite having over a 24 hour wait period. I along with other passengers were stacked in dorm style non barricaded rooms in 1.5ft wide beds like animals. It was in total poor taste. Half the Turkish Air employees I approached at the Airport for help with directions and clarifications were dismissive to the point of being obnoxious. Walking through the airport, all I could think was what a disorganized and hard to navigate airport it was. It was an unpleasant experience and I will never recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. It was my first Turkish air, and it will be my last."
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "Loved the seating space"
Cons: "I was traveling with my sister and the lady's who gave us our boarding pass had trouble with our tickets and sat us separate."
Pros: "Flight was great, booking agents, flight attendants all superb."
Cons: "Airport in Istanbul could use an upgrade. Poor gate directions and signs. No jetways, meaning they bus you out to the plane each time. This adds to time needed to change planes and may be inconvenient for older people who struggle with climbing stairs or carrying bags."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."
Cons: "Was great overall."
Pros: "food is always great, even if my flight is two hours or less. seats are comfortable and I enjoy the leg space."

Cons: "Asked to have all the food (appetizer, main course, etc) served together , as they advertise, but was told that service wasn't available. Ordered dinner, was almost as tasty as a Stouffers meal (it was some type of glop of lamb). 7 hours into flight the menu advertised a warm chocolate chip cookie, asked for one was told they THOUGHT they were out, came back about an hour later said the found one, but it wasn't warm, so I passed (not a real fan of eating food they found) About 8 hours into flight , the attendant said out of the blue that they were sorry about not providing the meal all together as requested, but that the other attendant didn't know they offered that service."

Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time.

Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."

I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"

Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Pros: "I can't even count the number of times I have flown KLM in the last 4 years. They are my airline of choice when I fly back and forth from the U.S. thru Amsterdam to Nairobi. This last flight I boarded and then 90 very exuberant girls from London board in all the rows in front of me. I was concerned it was going to be a less than restful flight. Just the opposite. As always the KLM crew took extra ordinary care of all of use. The service was wonderful and I scooted off the flight ahead of the girls to make my very short connection. The crew is what always make the experience delightful! Thank you again KLM."
Cons: "It would be so nice if the arm rests came up all the way. When you have empty space on your row it would be nice to move the arm rests all the way and stretch out. Also there were not as many New Release Movies to choose from as usual, it seemed."
Pros: "The service is very good.Crew is very nice and flight on time."
Pros: "the hostess was nice"
Cons: "i was givven a poor seat at the end of the airplane, 2 people slept next to me and for 9 hours i couldnt leve my seat untill the hostess asked me if i needed help"

Pros: "Crew was professional and attentive and the dinner options were to my liking."
Cons: "The seat (15E) was extremely small for a flight of this duration. I was given an exit row seat, which was nice in terms of legroom but it is not really ideal to have to stow all belongings in the overhead for a flight this long - with no place close by to store essentials, like a water bottle."
Cons: "Seat spaces are so small for long flights. London Helsinki on the back seat was a torture."
Pros: "The crew was brilliant. They were so cordial and helpful. Every one of the, was attentive and cheerful. Well done"
Cons: "The filet I ordered was so tough that it was inedible. On the whole, the food was not very good, ev n the tea service which was weird. Also, the business class seat are poorly designed. If one is in a window seat and the person on the aisle is using the foot rest, one is trapped in place."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment meaning movie selection and staff was real friendly. Plus flights were on time."
Cons: "The seat need more cushion especially for long flights and more leg room. Very uncomfortable after awhile of prolonged sitting."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess with a long delay and change of gate. The flight was one hour late and we missed our connection. Because it was on a different airway"

Pros: "Crew was good. Cramped seating as usual."
Cons: "Extra seat leg and knee room like 4 more inches would make all the difference in the world."
Cons: "Never made it!"
Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"
Cons: "I didn’t receive my bag and I lost one day waiting for it without going anywhere . Without any information about the delivery time . Very disappointing about that services , I even couldn’t change and I still waitingggg"
Pros: "The customer agents were helpful and just great"

Pros: "On time, smooth boarding."
Pros: "Check in was a breeze, and the food was good!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed d/t engine trouble, & we missed our re-booked connecting flights twice & finally our third flight was only available to a different city than originally planned..

Cons: "Not much leg room if you are tall and the person in front of you reclines their seat."
Pros: "Our luggage was delayed over three hours, coming in on a 5:30 flight, then having to wait for it to be delivered to the baggage carousel. It cost us 3.5 hours of time we should have used to explore the area of Rome around our apartment and the cost of dinner in the airport."
Cons: "Very irresponsible staff and customer service. The flight got delayed due to technical reasons and the havoc after that is beyond explanation. Wish there was zero stars to rate"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, aided by being one of the last to board as I was relaxing in the lounge! Boarding was started earlier than listed and complete by the boarding time, long before the flight was due to leave. Crew were polite and courteous, even going to some extra effort to get me a semblance of a meal."
Cons: "Booked this flight every last minute and didn't order a Vegan option at the time. Was flying business over lunch time so a meal was served. However there was no vegetarian option on the menu. I expected there to be a vegetarian option at least, and I would work around my dietary choice, but with no vegetarian option, this was impossible to do. In the end the crew managed to rustle up something from the Crew meal and I was able to then have snippets of meal segments that suited my requirements. How could this be prevented in the future? Make available a vegetarian choice on all meal served flights. A Meat eater can eat vegetarian at a push but not the other way around. I know if might be too much to ask to make that a Vegan option as standard, because then every one can eat it, but just putting that out there."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Snacks and beverages available all time."
Cons: "Flight was operated by American Airlines. Aircraft was insanely old, with no personal entertainment system, but only a few overhead monitors for all passengers, which played OLD movies. That is unbelievable and unacceptable in 2018. Seats pitch was pretty small and I even had to fly on a broken seat that would not recline, for a 11 hours flight. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever flew. If that wasn't enough to make the experience the worst possible, flight attendance was rude! I strongly suggest to avoid American Airlines at all cost."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Potatoe chips were served as the 2nd meal. Yuck..seat cushion was hard, leg room was super tight. A painful 7 hours."
Cons: "Small plqne"
Pros: "things went smoothly once we were boarded"
Cons: "they kept changing boarding time. not their fault, i suppose."
Pros: "BA recognizes benefits earned with AA (OneWprld alliance). Boarding was quick and get to use the launch to freshen up before the trip."
Cons: "Crew was not polite; food was terrible and seat was awful (no space, poor quality entertainment screen and no space for legs)"
Pros: "Crew was late due to Thanksgiving traffic. The Crew was then very rude during the flight and unapologetic for what has to be the most ridiculous reason for a flight delay I have ever experienced. If a passenger had that excuse, do you think the airline would wait for the passenger? Lame."
Cons: "Unable to book a seat in advance"
Pros: "Good staff service, good leg room."
Cons: "Could use more variety in channel options for entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly attendants."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."
Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"
Pros: "The crew was ON TOP OF IT."
Pros: "Plane ldeparted and landed on time. Plane was nicer than expected but not the same quality as Airbus 320"
Cons: "Immigration was severely understaffed for number of people waiting Took an hour to process 50 people. Crew member unhappy by seat swap as had special meal request. Had moved only one seat to the left to help other passenger out."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, no fuss no muss. Premium economy worth the price"
Cons: "Kosher food was frozen - inedible. Chicken dry. Worst meal ever on a plane"
Pros: "Crew was terrific! Comfortable equipment, nice food offered. Generally felt the entire BA team had a great attitude which makes a world of difference regarding the experience."
Cons: "Asked to check baggage in right before boarding. Cabin pressure was terrible. Seats were not comfortable No food was offered for free. No entertainment was offered. Disappointed in flying Airbus 321"
Pros: "Like the direct flight."
Cons: "Didn't like the 2 hour layover."
Pros: "Got to Hong Kong alive..."
Cons: "Got downgraded from full-fare business to premium economy; then they lost my luggage (my travel companion also got food poisoning)"
Pros: "entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "the spaniards are always LATE. and DISORGANZIED."
Pros: "The entertainment was probably the best part of the flight."
Cons: "The staff were less than friendly, the food was terrible . Not to mention it was like pulling teeth to get a beverage from time to time. Wouldn’t do it again...... there too many service oriented airlines available to make this mistake again."
Pros: "NOTHING, now waiting in airport for four hours."
Cons: "55-minute connection across terminals - five of us missed this flight. Iberia didnt even offer a voucher for breakfast. Makes this an overnight nightmare"
Pros: "This was a good flight with good service and a nice crew. It was especially nice to have actual silverware to use for the meal."
Cons: "Changing terminals in New Yory was challenging because the route was not clearly marked. They did not honor the on-line boarding passes, so I had to go to the counter to reprint the boarding passes and then go through security again. I also would have preferred a clean blanket once I got on board. The flight attendants seemed hesitant to speak to me in Spanish, which I speak pretty well and they also seemd uncomfortable talking to me in English, which is my native tongue. This made it hard to interact with them in my normal good natured way."
Cons: "Flight from Iberia, operated by AA and finaly no flight!!!!!"
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: "Food was delicious and good variety!"
Pros: "Crew entertainment food."
Cons: "2 hours late. Missed connection in Madrid. Waiting 4 hours for next flight."
Pros: "Landing was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Reclination system, closer and closer to the AVE, is an advantage. Although still to improve how not to disturb the passenger behind you."
Cons: "Boarding was messy. We barely fitted in the waiting area. Food quite crappy, especially breakfast."
Pros: "Smooth, more food than I've had in the past on united, everyone was friendly, everything seemed clean, smooth take off and landing!"
Cons: "The plane was absolutely freezing. It was so uncomfortable. And no leg room whatsoever. I couldn't even cross my legs."
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."
Cons: "The only bad thing is that the checking at JFK was very long!!!!"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "check-in very poor. Priority check-in was slower than the others. The attendant was unhelpful and had inaccurate information"
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: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
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: "Food was good. Nice blanket and pillow."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. I read online that they were but tought it can't be that bad. In real life, I was amazed by their general disregard and apathy associated with their job and us flyers. It was worse than the reviews. I really felt like they hated Americans. One flight attendant rolled her eyes when asked for something, another snacked her lips. They really don't seem like they like their jobs or their customers. If that's the case, move on."
Pros: "the food and the entertaiment"
Cons: "long trip"
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"
Cons: "The air conditioning was not working correctly, they opened the door during boarding to allow for some relief. ??? It was just uncomfortable. Another thing which is terribly annoying is the touch screen entertainment on the back of the seat. Who in their right mind invented this? What happens when you have a inconsiderate person playing games behind you tapping your seat back like they are playing the xylophone? Ridiculous! People have lost their ability to be respectful, so please get rid of this and put the controls someplace else. This goes for all airlines. Thanks."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Misplaced luggage. Long lines. Poor staffing. Had to give up food vouchers for delayed flight given long lines just to pick up vouchers. Long lines due to poor staffing."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Iberia had outstanding service"
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."
Cons: "This is a horrible airlline. No inoformation or connecting here info in Madrid, no agents anywhere to be found. Online check-in malfunctions food was the worst food I ever saw. Airline causes huge amount of unecessary sress."
Pros: "Cres was great and the food"
Cons: "Flight was 4:30 hour late"
Pros: "Extremely disapointed of the way i had to find what airline was in charge of the flight. I almost missed it. I had to ask 3 different airlines, nobody could help me, i had to change terminal. Etc... Very stressful. Kayak explained very badly. I think about writing a review on your website and others"
Pros: "It was on time and good selection on movies"
Cons: "Iberia needs new aircrafts... They are always kinda old..."
Pros: "Flight from NYC to Madrid"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for 3 days and no compensation for out of pocket expenses Flight from Madrid to Florence"
Pros: "Movies and food were both very good."
Cons: "Boarding was laugh out loud stupid. Worse than cattle. No announcements. Looked like the entire process was run by high schoolers. They wouldn't let us board till the last because we hadn't booked a return on BA. Among the worst flights ever"
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"
Pros: "Had two seats so comfortable. Food typical Iberia fare. Pleasant staff. Arrived early."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "In flight movie selection was good."
Cons: "Food was palatable."
Pros: "Iberia had a plenty of crew members and everything ran smoothly. Also, believe it or not, airlines, the little things really make a difference. It's nice to have a pillow and blanket in economy and decent meals with metal flatware. The video selections on Iberia are excellent too. A good flight that left on time and landed on time."
Pros: "Good entertainment provision. Good complimentary meals provided."
Cons: "Cold air temperature."
Pros: "Flight was operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "The aircraft seemed old. There were no personal screens, only shared ones in the isle. For a long flight, one would expect a more modern plain."
Pros: "everything !"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was nice"
Cons: "Poor leg room. I'm 5'4 and barely had leg room. Thank goodness I had an aisle seat."
Pros: "Friendliness, a respite from US bossy crew behavior. One felt as if stepping right on Spanish land. The female pilot was a pleasant surprise gave us flight info with a special touch and landed that giant jet as if it had been a kite. Super!"
Pros: "Terrible plane from the 80's. No personal entertainment system. They played only one bad movie. Garbage food. Lost our luggage."
Pros: "Nice and helpful crew on board my flight to Spain. Airplane seemed very old and outdated inside. No WiFi for international flight! A big negative. No TV's in chair nor automated food ordering. Made it on time and safe, which is important. I was able to pre- order a vegan meal for my flight which is fantastic...and it was very tasty. No seat assignment until just before I boarded plane. Very disturbing."
Pros: "Friendly staff!!"
Pros: "The seating was tight. They never loaded my luggage. It took them 3 days to get it to me, over 48 hrs after reaching my destination. Absolutely unacceptable. Our experience with One World airlines in the past year has been terrible--Anerican, AirBerlin, and now British Air/Iberia. It looks like we will be going only Sta Alliance or independent airlines in the future"
