Pros: "They have badest customer service becouse i want extended my way back to chicago they did not talk to me as customer but every time call they hand off the phone more then 3 times i will not fly again with this plane"
Cons: "To be honest, i feel like your pricing is very misleading. I was not prepared to pay $60 per bag in luggage fees. For an international flight, I believe your site should be much more clear in stating whether the fees paid will include luggage or not. I will consider other options in the future to avoid this unpleasant surprise at the airport."
Cons: "We booked flights with more than 75 mins connection time in Madrid but then the airline changed their schedule which reduced our connection to less than 55 mins. I was traveling alone with my 5 & 7 year old and we had to run non-stop from our 1st domestic flight to the international one, changing terminals, passing passport control (huge lines), and another security. No help from Iberia at all in terms of providing any assistance like a shuttle bus, quick passage thru passport or security. And they were nonchalant in terms of “if you miss your connecting flight, it’s your problem...”. Come on, we paid $4,500 for 3 tickets, and deserve better customer service than this, specially when you changed the flight schedule for your operational reasons!"
Pros: "Boarding, on time, entertainment awesome, food pretty good"
Cons: "Crew not that attentive, seats dont have much room"
Cons: "Changed our seat without notification and didn't help. We talked to 4 gate agents, the boarding gate agent and 3 crews, and they didn't try to help, at all. The pillow had coffee stains and eye make up, even though they were wrap in plastic...."
Cons: "My checked baggage was not trasnferred and did not arrive in Chicago."
Cons: "Missed connection due to Iberia. Rerouted to JFK after overnight delay and had to transfer to Newark. Upon arrival at Newark, which we had to arrange, we were notified that the flight was changed back to JFK. Turned a 12 hour travel day into 36. Horrid experience."
Pros: "Plenty of space for a long flight, left and landed on time. Overall very pleased"
Cons: "Only complaint is that there was not dairy-free friendly food option for either meal. I figured this would happen so I brought my own food and was glad I did"
Pros: "The color that crew members wear"
Cons: "I arrived 2 hr.30 min and regardless of having bought my ticket long time ago, October, I was placed standby because an overbooking of the plane. The agent in the counter claimed that they could do that because was "legal to overbook". One of the agents at the gate when I went to get my seat indicated that I paid for a "cheap ticket" and that I should take whatever seat they have left. I was given 46E. I was thrown my food on my table. I asked for the pasta option because I do not eat beef. She said: "That's what we have, we do not have more food. You are flying economy class". I was mistreated badly."
Cons: "It was hard to find where to go in the Madrid airport.and arrived only just in time to the check in. I was singled out before getting on the plane to be frisked, etc. One said there was something written on my boarding passes that was an alert. I am a 64 year old woman traveling alone....no plans for anything bad to be sure!"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, polite and attentive"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in parts."
Pros: "Arriving safely on time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, unable to adjust temperature individually, huge temperature swings from hot to cold and back to hot, terrible food, impersonal crew service."
Pros: "The plane from Nashville was over an hour late so the flight was changed from Nashville-Philadelphia-London-Rome"
Pros: "the food"
Pros: "goed attention in Iberia A320 600 and very wide"
Cons: "I didn't have any video for over two hours. I had to speak to 4 different crew members to get them to reset my monitor. They were not very friendly."
Pros: "It was short."
Pros: "Was surprised to be upgraded to business class, so it was effectively the most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The terminal at the Madrid airport has good shopping and dining options, but it's rather far and took ~25-30min to get there (including a short wait at the custom control."
Cons: "The check in took an awfully long time, the agent took 25-30 min to finalize our boarding pass."
Pros: "Surprisingly, Iberia provided the best experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and American Airlines"
Cons: "Boarding in Barajas was chaotic, boarding group number signs are not visible and gate audio could not be heard"
Pros: "Returning home"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours they changed the gate # My notifications in my phone were wrong overall poor management My seat was behind a couple with two children that cried and cried and screamed during the flight, couldnt sleep not even with the headphones helped listening to those children crying. Iberia offered to check in my luggage so i can pick it up at my final destination, but my bag never made it. Had to wait two days woth no clothes or work items i needed in my luggage. Overall a very bad experience with iberia"
Pros: "Everything was above what I experienced with other airlines."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly"
Cons: "My ticket said operated by British Airways so after an hour of standing in line - why there were two agents baffles me-- I was told to go stand in the Iberia one. I went to a kiosk and it didn't recognize my flight, so I finally got ahold of someone. The night before I was unable to check in because their site had crashed, so there was no way for me to know where to go."
Pros: "No nonsense all business crew. Barajas airport."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. A large crowd was allowed to clog gate access, and no announcements were made regarding boarding procedures therefore as a preboarding family with toddler we had to push through the crowd to accessential the gate. It seems boarding status announcements could have alleviated the boarding tension."
Pros: "Take-off and landing was timely."
Cons: "Really disappointed with a lack of service. On the 8 hour flight we had one meal service within an hour of take-off and one within an hour of landing. No water or checks or anything for almost 6 straight hours, unlike my prior flight. I had to finally get up and ask for water. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and some flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "The last thing I would ever expect from a flight attendant is negligent behavior. A child aged around 5 years old clearly unattended by parents throughout the entire 9 1/2 hour flight to Chicago was not only being disruptive but his behavior could have placed him in danger. From banging the table shut successively against the chair, to walking on top of the seat and placing his hands in the monitor behind him not allowing me to see my screen. Furthermore, his feet and legs dangled and kicked the person immediately next to him across the aisle, creating a dangerous environment for himself and for others as he could have gotten hurt from somebody or a cart passing through. I proceeded to express my concern for the child's safety and the flight attendant expressed these matters are delicate and refused to engage the parent in any type of conversation. This child's screams and incessant yelling lasted the entirety of my flight, hindering ANYBODY from sleeping or watching their entertainment without interruption. Hopefully in the future when faced with not only an extremely disruptive family but a clinically uneasy child, flight attendants will make an effort to at least announce the importance of respecting other people's flight experience. Needless to say this is the very last time I ever fly Iberia. This matter was not only brought to the crew's attention once but three times by three different people."
Pros: "Not a full flight so I had to seats to speak out. Flight attendants were friendly and it didn't seem like a 10+ hour flight."
Cons: "I wish there was a quicker flight between LAX - Europe."
Pros: "Good Entertainment, ."
Cons: "Iberia Airlines The flight attendants on the Iberia section of the flight from Madrid to Chicago could have cared less. The plane was late and the crew could have cared less. They fasten seat belt sign was on way way too long with no turbulence so they did not have to open the bar. They would not serve vodka from the cart and you needed to go to the back of the aircraft for it. Will not fly Iberia again. ."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Madrid is always a great airport and Iberia is it's top airline."
Cons: "Entertainment opitions weren't great. Crew service with beverages didn't come around nearly as much as a company like Lufthansa or United, etc."
Cons: "Cabin crew very unhelpful and unfriendly. Food terrible. Entertainment very lackluster and obscure."
Pros: "The seating in business class was excellent and comfortable."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system was good."
Cons: "I generally don't like Iberia customer service, either in phone or in person. Crew at times would behave in a rude fashion to certain requests, and act as if simple requests were an imposition on them."
Pros: "Smooth flight, great crew service, excellent movies selection, adequate meal service. Most importantly, no lost or late arriving luggage."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was excellent."
Pros: "The fact I got home."
Cons: "There was around a 6 hour delay and we had very little info as to what was happening next."
Pros: "Promptness. Easy boarding. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Security lines were failrly fast, the flight left and arrived on time and the service in the plane was good great job"
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking were the best things about this flight. The piloting was smooth too."
Cons: "Stewardesses were unfriendly and rude. Long flight, without individual entertainment on seats. Old plane, extremely cramped. The meal request made when booking the flight was not honored. Upon arrival to US customs, was told I was not on the passenger list (thus clearing customs was a bit touchy)."
Pros: "The television on the seatback."
Cons: "Paid $10 for WiFi that didn't work. Given standby seats despite arriving 2 hrs before flight. Service was not particularly friendly. Will try to avoid Iberia in the future."
Pros: "Big comfortable seats."
Pros: "Everything was ver y nice."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The staff was absolutely rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "to hot"
