Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."

Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"

Pros: "good service"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Never made it onto the plane due to flight departing early and my flight landed in Dublin late. So there was no experience for me on this flight"
Cons: "The flight to Madrid left with about 15 passengers waiting to leave the flight from Chicago. We landed before our flight to Madrid was to depart. But by time we walked out we all missed our flight and had to rebook. I’m sure the flight to Madrid could’ve waited for the 15 of us. But they didn’t."
Pros: "The crew was charming and very attentive to passengers."

Pros: "Fast efficient boarding. Short flight so no issues."
Pros: "Seats comfy, staff friendly."
Cons: "Because I booked through a third party, I wasn't able to log on to confirm seats or prepay my luggage or give my phone number for flight changes. When I got to airport they wanted 50 Euro for my extra luggage. They couldn't accept credit cards in Munich! So then I had to do another bank withdrawal. Minimum withdrawal 100, so now I have an extra 50 Euro left and another bank charge. Probably won't do this again through a third party to a foreign country."
Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"
Cons: "I had to pay 3 euros for a cup of black tea? Seriously? The captain could have lowered the volume when speaking. It was too loud."

Cons: "Boarding process in Dublin was long"
Pros: "Was part of my international flight"
Cons: "Was part of my international flight"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks of any kind."
Pros: "Not much paid for prority boarding but we were bussed to the flight in Faro and this made prority boarding nul and voidboarding"
Cons: "Out of your control but the shuttling around from gate to gate was inconvenient"
Pros: "The seats were incredibly comfy."
Cons: "They kept the cabin lights on throughout the entire flight, so it was impossible to sleep. My rating for entertainment and food is not really applicable because the flight was short and didn't have either."
Pros: "They boarded us in a very timely, organized and quick manner. The food was delicious and the flight attendants were awesome."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle seats, the flight attendants missed us for water offers and our tv's seemed stopped having any sound. I believed they overheated. After a couple hours, they cooled down and went on again. It was a very cold flight. I was so thankful for the blanket and that I brought my own also."
Pros: "It was pretty fast and the temperature was very comfortable. I didn't have to cover up with blankets."
Cons: "I was surprised they didn't offer a free snack and drink. I was caught off guard not knowing that I had to pay for both and there wasn't any entertainment. There weren't screens for shows or music."
Pros: "On time, no fuss, got us there"
Pros: "I thought the Airbus 330 was new, well maintained and clean, but the plastic fittings and layout were cheap. The crew was friendly and conversational."
Cons: "The food, which was small and unappetising was served 1 hour into an 11 hour flight, and aside from a burrito near the end, nothing was served. They said that the drink cart would not be coming around but the one time 1hour into the flight before dinner, and wouldn't be coming round again, so We'd best order our drinks ahead of time if we wanted any wine etc to have with dinner. Very inconvenient. Leg room ridiculously small ."
Cons: "They airline left our luggage in Dublin and we still do mat have it. It's been over a day. 25 other people were impacted by this error. My daughters wedding is in two days. I have no clothes. My tray table was filthy. Had to ask the flight attendant for a wet napkin to clean the tray and my hands."
Pros: "All was ok on trip. We didn't have food or drink."
Cons: "The trip while 10mins late leaving was ok. The big problem I felt was we were going to a funeral and 2 booked Monday and 3 booked Tuesday. We are 3 retired ladies and had to pay €276 each while the 2 men paid €150."
Cons: "Lost luggage for three days. Had to buy clothing. Staff seemed dismissive when I went in a search on the third day back to the EDI airport. They said they didn't have any information about it and that it was probably in Dublin. Later it showed up at my hotel with no call or notification. Not acceptable. Probably will avoid Aer Lingus in the future."
Pros: "Orderly boarding. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "Online seat assignment was unavailable. Once onboard, it felt like flight staff were reluctant to give water and keep passengers hydrated on the Air Lingus flight from SFO to DUB. They even offered my 11 and 14-yr olds coffee and tea over water! We had to ask 3 times every time we needed water. Both Aer Lingus flights to DUB and to MAD were delayed."
Pros: "Nice stewards."
Cons: "Terrible bag handling and passenger experience management wrote to airline 3 times and no response. Was without luggage for a week with no offer of assistance."
Cons: "We were surprised at check-in by a baggage charge for our 1st checked bag for each passenger. (We were led to believe that the 1st checked bag had no charge for each passenger before arriving at the airport.)"
Pros: "Timely and clean. Great crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, boarding was unorganized, everything for pay even water"
Cons: "The flight from Ireland to Spain was fine. The flight from Chicago to Ireland, absolutely horrible. I will never use Kayak again. My wife and I showed up to O'Hare in Chicago to be told that the flight is cancelled. There was no notification, absolutely nothing. I was on hold for nearly 2 hours with Kayak. Once finally connected, the customer service agent, argued with us for nearly an hour saying the flight was not cancelled!!!! We googled it! We told him to look up on google, and he kept on saying we were wrong! After 3 hours go by, he tells "oops, it's cancelled". We wasted nearly 5 hours with Kayak to try and get different seats, and then Kayak gave my wife and I seats that are not sitting together. If Kayak, looked on google, and actually tried to help I would've had seats with my wife. So disappointing. Worst experience I've had with customer service and with a company. I'll never use Kayak again."
Pros: "On time and very comfortable."
Pros: "Movie options were awesome on such a long flight!"
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "Rerouted through London, added five hours to trip"
Cons: "Flight was late out of Toronto making eight people miss the Glasgow connection. Remaining Glasgow flights for the day were full. Aer lingus staff at customer service seemed confused on what to do with us. Finally, after talking to a manager they offered to route us through London to Glasgow. Very frustrating, not sure why they couldn't hold the Glasgow flight to accommodate all of us? It would of been a lot easier for us!!"
Cons: "Plane was full of noisy school rugby children"
Pros: "Hartførd departure instead of Boston; help with boarding and wth getting offi"
Cons: "Old seats took 3 pillows to fill hollow area. Sea t pocket was full of cracker bits. Took some crew members several passes-by to understand I needed help."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "I'm soooo upset about the service after my flight canceled. 1.the staff ignored me when I asked if I could have a VIP to rebook my tickets earlier because my mom got cancel and was going to do the surge . But he went away and never came back, no any response of YES or NO. 2.I don't know why the airline company still need 11 hours to rebook the tickets with all our flight information and our passport liscen numbers already , making us waiting till 3 am at the airport. 3. I asked my boyfriend to talk to the staff on phone, and the staff told my BF that he didn't know my English was not good. I said to him loudly that I had told him , but the manager besides said "don't shout at my staff"to me, even without asking me what happened . I don't think that was a good attitude for the service department, especially to a foreigner. My email address is Chentongtong@wku.edu.cn"
Cons: "I was very lucky to make my connecting flight because of a 90 minute delay. I was informed that my bags might not make it, which is the last thing you want to hear when you need your bag for the next day..."
Pros: "I wish more companies would run like Aer Lingus. Flying is usually very unpleasant. Aer Lingus was Great!!"
Pros: "The crew, the comforts, the convenience of USA pre-arrival in dublin"
Cons: "The unscheduled pre-flight maintenance that held us up a bit at the beginning."
Pros: "Crew were very polite & attentive, food & entertainment were also good"
Cons: "The main problem was that where I was sitting was to cool. All three women in my row were cold. At one point about half way through it warmed up but then it cooled down again. I was wearing a fleece jacket & had a blanket but was still cold. Of course row 28 sees a lot of traffic & noise from the lavatories so that wasn't fun but the cold was the main problem."
Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "No social distancing enforced, I was sat next to another person (no spaces between booked seats)"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "There was no food or drinks on an international flight - you had to pay for even a coffee or tea ...... not acceptable!"
Cons: "They checked everyone’s carry on bags, which made the boarding process incredible slow, then they made you stand on a bus until it was full, to drive to the plane to walk up stairs in the rain. I kept my bag for 20 hours, flying from Vancouver to Calgary to London and before my flight to Madrid. They didn’t care that I said I didn’t want to give it up or that I had to make a connection. Madrid’s airport is notorious for have slow baggage handling, so they are making me wait. I packed for 2 weeks in a carry on and back pack to avoid checking luggage. I am disappointed."
Cons: "Missed our connection because of problem w jetway"
Pros: "Service was good on the plane"
Cons: "Thought I had purchased an optima coach, but was forced to pay $60 baggage fee. At checkin, asked for aisle seat, but agent had already assigned a middle seat. Then asked to change to an aisle seat, but she demanded $30 to change. Aftwr boarding was complete, there were at least 6 aisle seats empt"
Pros: "The big snow storm cause a 6 hours delay from JFK to MAD, which made me missed my connection flight. Iberia didn't honor its responsibility to find me a connection flight and had no idea where my luggage was. I ended up paying for a train ticket with Renfe from MAD to VLC."
Cons: "It is insane that Iberia didn't help me at all. Iberia should honor its responsibility to ensure the customer have a connection flight when there was a delay due to weather. They were not well trained to locate my luggage, and help me finding an alternative solution, i.e. Renfe train to MAD to VLC."
Cons: "The flight was 45 minutes late leaving. My connection in Madrid was closing when I arrived. My luggage was not transferred due to this. I almost missed my plane. I am still waiting on my luggage to come to me. I only left Madrid yesterday so hopefully I will get my suitcase today"
Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."
Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to
Pros: "All of it we left and landed ahead of time"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no notice.or explanation Stuck at Heathrow no alternatives available. We are a party of 7 3 young children and 1 disabled passenger . Now one of us flys tomorrow via Madrid, and palma before mahon. All others fly Sunday via Barcelona. Hol ruined disgrace"
Pros: "No entertainment and no vegetarian selections in the menu unless you book in advance again the plane was dirty"
Cons: "It is a flight operated by Iberia and business class doesn’t really feel like such"
Pros: "I always fly AA but this time was a nightmare"
Cons: "The gate agents put me on a wild goose chase as they made an error on the time of my flight departing. My wife and I were sent to three gates and finally was apologized to by the manager on duty. Our flights were changed for free put we lost 5 hours of travel. My wife started IVF treatment today... and she was uanbale to sleep before her 7am appt ( got home at 3am) Very stressful!!!"
Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "Comfort, entertainment"
Pros: "On time and easy."
Cons: "BA have stopped giving free snacks and drinks which was always refreshing and different to other airlines! It set them apart but it's just back to another airline now!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."
Pros: "Plane was small but reasonably so for the length of the flight. Crew were nice, no issues with the flight.."
Cons: "Flew economy so no food. Definitely no entertainment. First world problems: Not that it's really a big deal, but I sure wish these short haul flights would start installing at least in seat video for flight tracking, news or a few games. Even just an internet connection. It's bad enough you are shoved in there like cattle in a sardine can."
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "My flight was delayed after we were already on the plane. We weren’t offered any complimentary snacks or beverages, most likely because it was a “short 2 1/2 hour flight.” Flight took longer than originally stated."
Pros: "The long wait at the airport had air conditioning"
Cons: "Webjet.com and me are waiting to get my flight changed by British Airways. I tried to change my flight because of paperwork issues. I was not given any paper to report the issue. I took pictures of myself at the British Airways counter. I called customer service. They told me my contract was with webjet.com. Webjet.com told me British Airways initially reported that it was a no show. (I was at the counter for about 2 hours, and they knew I had a contract with webjet.com). I hope that my contract with webjet.com does not become frustrated because of British Airways interference. I was not even allowed to change my flight to come back at the end of September. It is very likely that British Airways has some part of the money paid to webjet.com. I am still waiting for British Airways to cooperate. I don't understand why webjet.com had to tell me British Airways initially reported my long wait and conversations with their agents for 2 hours as a no show. I can prove I was there and that I talked to their agents. I also have the email from webjet.com in which they told me British Airways was reporting it to the webjet.com as a no show (and they knew I had a contract with webjet.com)"
Cons: "The food , it will be great to have a salad option ."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "British Airways misplaced our luggage for three days, and would give us no further information than "it will arrive soon." So, we were stuck near the local address we had provided in case they called for 2 full days. They refused to give us a more precise time as to when they would be delivered. Well, at one point they did say that they would be delivered at noon, but they weren't. Throughout the entire time waiting for the luggage to be delivered, there was no sense of urgency or concern on the part of British Airways. It seems missing luggage is just Business as Usual at British Airways."
Cons: "I was not allowed to check in online, so I had to go to the airport early to check in. Despite purchasing my flight months prior, and arriving at the airport with plenty of time to to check in, I was told that I was going to be bumped from my flight because it was overbooked, which would mean that I would miss my international connection. After waiting for everyone else to board on a tiny flight, there suddenly was a seat available and they let me board, but they managed to not put my bag on the flight, which means I have no luggage. Lastly, despite checking in more than 7 hours ahead of time for the international flight, I was given a middle seat and was told that I would have to pay $40 if I wanted to switch to an aisle/window. The middle seat was cramped and uncomfortable, particularly for 8 hours (after 7 hours of connections and waiting in airports). UGH."
Pros: "Heathrow T5 bag drop and terminal in general was great as usual."
Cons: "Iberia are a poor codeshare partner. Old plane, tacky interior, and just like BA they make it difficult to get even a glass of water without paying extra."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and even brought by child activity packs for my 2 children flying with me. The flight was on time!"
Cons: "Unboarding on the runway was unpleasant, and having to take a bus to the correct terminal... but it beats circling in the air forever like I'v had to do in the past."
Pros: "Food awful no entertainment"
Pros: "The food and entertainment options were both above average."
Cons: "The flight was being run by Iberia, not British Airways. Iberia has a policy which did not allow me to check in without proof of a return flight. Unfortunately, my travel partner had booked the return flight and did not share the details with me. I was not able to reach my travel partner and, as such, was forced to buy a new ~$2,300 return ticket on the spot in order to provide the necessary proof. This was an extreme inconvenience, as I nearly missed my flight. If Iberia or British Airways made its travelers aware of this policy in advance of their check in. I have no intention of flying Iberia ever again."
Pros: "Excellent service by crew. Attention to meeting everyone's needs. Was impressed with their discreet yet efficient assistance to an individual who became ill on board. Was really impressed by this."
Cons: "Drink choices , including champagne, were great. Food however, while improved since our last experience, was mediocre ."
Cons: "This flight was even tighter and my space even smaller. We were on the first row after business class. Not only was I extremely tight with no way to get out of my seat, but we had a curtain in our faces. I found that to be extremely uncomfortable and quite useless. This flight had no TV and no other means of entertainment, having the seat in front of us so tight that I could not even move my legs. Fortunately this flight was only a couple hours long."
Cons: "The flight was awful! Boarding was unorganized. Once on the plane, space was TIGHT! I have flown with Iberia before and had leg room and TVs behind the chairs. This was not like this. Seats were uncomfortable for an 8 hour flight, smelly, and flimsy. I have never been more uncomfortable. The crew were nice but one was very rude to a passenger snapping at him and all ignored a very drunk man on my flight as much as possible. This man was very disruptive for most of the flight singing, shaking seats, touching other passengers, and walking about the flight. I did not feel safe at all! The staff would tell him to sit down, walk away, and he would be instantly back up. Staff would see this and ignore. I had no idea what to do. I felt unsupported and unsafe. The flight had constant turbalence to go along with it. To the point that they canceled dinner. I wanted to kiss the ground when I got off the flight. This was absolutely miserable. I could not be more disappointed."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Free meal Option to check luggage to final destination or to layover point Staff professional apart from closing desks."
Cons: "Self check in machine slow - crashed while printing boarding pass Massive queue at check in and bag drop counter Staff closed check in desks despite long queue No easy way to get from hotel to airport Only flight map on overhead screens"
Pros: "didnt remember a single thing from this flight because I was passed out from exhaustion after not being able to sleep at all on the previous flight.... this flight was run by iberia, and the seats were delightfully simple compared to the atrocity in the BA world traveller section"
Pros: "ORD -> MAD The flight was on time, it boarded on time, it took off only a few minutes late (you can blame that on incredibly crowded ORD). It landed, on time, to an empty terminal. The plane itself was new, very clean, and very well kept. The crew was friendly and spoke a wide variety of languages, including English, French, and of course Spanish. They had no issue with Latin American Spanish or European Spanish accents, which is a concern for some. Overall the flight got me to my destination on time, in one piece, and without breaking the bank."
Cons: "The seats, oh the dreaded seats. In economy class the seats are the most uncomfortable thing you can sit on for 8 hours. If they replaced them with plastic folding lawn chairs, you would have a better time. But that is what you get for flying coach."
Pros: "Crew was nice and comforting."
Cons: "Well, if I needed to send a fax, there was a line provided even with a mobile airplane phone that didn't work. The LCD screen didn't work on most seats, no USB charging, no adjustable headrests, blowers were barely functioning. The jet needs to be replaced especially for being an overseas flight."
Pros: "My husband and I greatly enjoyed our non-stop flight from London to Chicago. A long flight was made pleasant by the professionalism of the flight-staff and the meals, beverages, and movies we had on the plane. Please note that our original flight was cancelled by the airline, and we got a non-stop flight in its place--which was even better--so we did not make any stop at Madrid, Spain. The non-stop was through British Airways, but we actually traveled via an American Airlines flight. The experience was really terrific!"
Cons: "Same issue: cannot choose the seat in advance or check in."
Pros: "New airplane,"
Cons: "When I arrive in Madrid, i have to wait more then TWO HOURS in baggage claim for me to get my luggage, miss my rental car office, they charge me $40 euros for after hours pick up, don't know why Iberia took sooo long, the terminal was empty"
Pros: "Ease of location of airport"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 times, but communication about this was good so no one was kept wondering. Overall, the crew were attentive with smiles...sometimes that makes all the difference in the world. Movie selection was good for a long flight."
Pros: "puntualidad y servicial"
Cons: "En el aeropuerto la recogida de la maleta venía con otro número de vuelo, me tocó ir a información a averiguar."
Cons: "not even enough room for my upper legs to fit. I am not even 6 foot tall and my knees are bruised from hitting the seat in front of me"
Pros: "Modern plane, fast boarding and decent service. Very quick flight to Madrid."
Cons: "The food was mediocre and not that much. The seats aren't comfortable for sleeping. Iberia lost my luggage on the connecting flight I had right after."
"Me fui madrid - Cancún y nunca llegó la maleta 🧳 a Cancún… iberia no se hace responsable y debo arreglármelas con AereoMexico quienes no dicen nada sobre mi equipaje…… MUY IRRESPONSABLE IBERIA"
"The flight was hours late and caused me to miss my connection to Boston. Iberia was slow to fix things at the airport and ended sending me to a low-budget hotel. This was a bad experience overall and I will likely discontinue using Kayak again going forward."
"Nice service. Everything on time. Not really a luxurious experience in business class."
"Many people had masks off for very long periods of time. I noted one woman sleeping for the last 3 hours of the flight with no mask on. Cabin crew walked past several times, served drinks and food and didn’t bother to say anything until land procedures. Also during the meal they flight attendant told us there was one chicken meal left and left it amount is to argue who gets it. Frustrating and unsafe flight."
"The flight from Madrid to NYC was operated by American airlines,it took them a while to figure it out that I'm on flight number 095,it was really frustrated and a lot of pressure for me.finally a wonderful lady figure it out and helped me to go on the flight back home to NYC."
"Well many things could have been better. I bought business class ticket. There was no lounge at airport. At least they could have provided us vouchers for a good restaurant to rest, eat, charge our phones etc... The seats were so uncomfortable. They dont recline and i booked business especially for comfort due to back pain. There was no entertainment at all. In our time this is really poor. I liked the food. Crew was super nice."
"British Airways cancelled my flight just a few hours before my departure. Very upsetting."
Cons: "I was denied booking because they didn't properly issue my boarding pass. They refused to pay a hotel and kept lying and mistreating me."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "The service and the flight connection which we missed because of the short amount of time in between the 2 flights. They didn't wait for us, as we got told they would, since our first flight was with Iberia. And this flight was late"
Pros: "Lounge closed - last to board for business"
Cons: "Food and Service in Business Class"
Pros: "The flight happened and no incidents on the flight."
Cons: "Was actually RyanAir. Won't be flying them again. The checkin experience was a nightmare. Only had three very long lines. My line closed when I was almost to the front. When I did talk to someone found out I needed to have my passport validated by another Ryanair person and would have to leave the line. The person checking me in couldn't validate my passport, Really?? At every other airline the checkin person validates your passport."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Check in took a very long time. Food was not great. Bathrooms were not cleaned during flight and quite disgusting."
Pros: "Not much of anything. No complimentary food or drink for a nearly five hour flight, and sub- par customer service."
Cons: "The check in agents with Iberia airlines in Porto were rude, the. told me only when I arrived that I could not carry on “camping backpacks”, so I would have to check it for an additional 40 euro to check it.. despite saying they’d be happy to check “carry on” free of charge.. I’ve never had a problem with my backpack before, and it fits well within the size restrictions and easily fits in the overhead.. then they were unable to transfer my bag that I payed 40 euro to check, to my connecting flight. Therefore I had to wait two days to receive my luggage at my final destination in Rome.. Overall a really mediocre and frustrating experience."
Pros: "A quick, quiet and relaxing flight - no stress at all. The flight was uneventful. My carry on bag had to be stored in the bottom of the aircraft as the overhead lockers in the aircraft are small. As such - just before you board the aircraft, you place your carryon bag at the bottom of the steps and then when you get off at your destination, you collect your carry on bag at the bottom of the steps - no time wasted and worked easily."
Cons: "The English announcements were a little hard to hear/understand as the flight attendant read it so fast - but then again - it was a short flight - so every second counts :-)"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful and the flight arrived early, even though we left a little bit late - as such - I was very happy with the flight. The onboard entertainment system was wifi based and there was a USB charging port in the seat too - modern aircraft."
Cons: "I had no complaints - the flight was just what it should have been ie no issues"
Cons: "Crew politeness"
Pros: "The flight was good even puntual! However I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online."
Cons: "Awful online experience! I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online. it never works!"
Pros: "Spacious plane."
Pros: "To check in took so long . I could have used the automated check in but my code was not recognised. Travelling as a couple we were given separate seats .The staff did not even see fit to even tell us.Poor meals. the cabin crew looked harassed."
Cons: "Send emails reminders to offer web check in."
Pros: "Speed of boarding and disembarking. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Slight delay"
Pros: "Nothing, it was awful"
Cons: "They were late with boarding to begin with and the process was extremely unorganized and slow. The Air France flight that was boarding next to ours at gate 9 got everybody onto the plane before our flight did and their plane was scheduled to take off 10 minutes AFTER us. The boarding attendant didn’t do a good job of announcing the group number for boarding. After priority and no baggage passengers, it was just one big mob. Our boarding passes were in group 1 but my mom ended up being one of the last people let through. The 2 attendants made her wait because they needed to tag her luggage. I guess they felt it was too big for carrying on. Which is fine. But they literally made her stand there while they let almost everyone else in line through. They even tagged other luggages and she was still waiting. And when she asked them about it, they told her to wait and they have to assist other people. What’s the point of being group 1 for boarding then? We still had to wait til pretty much everyone else went in. And the fact that our seats were in row 29 which is at the tail end of the plane made it even worse. Now we need to squeeze by 28 rows of people when we could’ve been in our seats and out of the way a long time ago. Terrible service!"
Pros: "The crew on board seemed efficient and friendl for this short 2.5 hour flight."
Cons: "No food, no drink, no entertainment were included with this fare. Thankfully we were so exhausted from the long haul flight immediate preceding this flight that we did not care. I'm not sure why but the gate staff was trying to get everyone to check their smaller bags including our backpacks. My husband gave in but I did not since not having them would be disaster during this trip. His backpack and many bags from other customers came about 15 minutes after the rest of the luggage so we were a little panicked. Thankfully all turned out fine."
Cons: "The flight circling for 1 hour leaving our connecting flight cancelled and forcing us to stay in Madrid for 24 Hours and the Iberia staff being rude and unhelpful left us in the airport for 6 Hours before offering us a hotel and coming back the next day to do 2 flights instead of a direct flight"
Pros: "The airport was air conditioned, I guess?"
Cons: "Awful service all around. Some type of notification about needing a passport that expires more than 6 months after your retrun date would be nice, either from the airline or from kayak, since you already send so many emails anyway. This would be super easy for you to do and save a lot of people a lot of hastle, since many do not know about this pretty counterintuitive restriction. Anyway, Iberia offered to rebook me the following day and put me on standby for the next flight to give me the morning to renew my passport. However when I came back to check in for the second flight, the original attendant had forgotten to actually add me to the standby list and in the meantime, my connecting flight had become overbooked. The check-in folks argued about whether I could be upgraded to fit onto this flight, but decided that since the original dely was my fault, the best they could offer was a flight at the same time the following day. I asked if I could rebook my return flight to push it back a day, and they told me that figure reservations could only be changed over the phone. I totally accept that monitoring the validity of my passport is my responsibility, but refusing to put in an ounce of effort to assist their customers with relatively unknown and counterintuitive restrictions, then not admitting to fault of your own or lifting a finger to make up for blatantly crappy service if it even slightly affects their bottom line is absurd. Do better, Iberia. Oh wait, you're an airline. I won't hold my breath."
Pros: "Saving grace: movie selection much better than expected. Food a bit better than expected (in the world of airline food). Crew capable & nice enough. We got to our destination on time, so at least there’s that."
Cons: "Boarding @ JFK was a joke. That part of airport is currently under construction, so massive # of ppl & not enough room for everyone. Once on plane, all reasonably good until we reached altitude & settled in for the evening. At that point, for some reason the heat came on between rows 39 & 46 (we were in row 45) & was on all. night. long. on an overnight flight. Crew was baffled & didn’t know how to fix. I was melting & miserable — impossible to sleep. Cramped, basic economy seats. Awful experience."
Cons: "JFK-Madrid flight got delayed by 3 hours which would cause me to miss my connection for Madrid-Split (~2 hour layover), I asked the Iberia representatives at JFK about changing the flight and they reassured me that “the connecting flight would hold for us” and “no need to change our flight”. To our surprise the connecting flight already left when we arrived to Madrid. It’s clear that this was a case of “not our problem” from the JFK Iberia ticket agent. Rather than helping us find a viable alternative for our flight (namely a flight that doesn’t arrive more than a full day later) before leaving for Madrid they shipped us to Madrid where there were poor/no options for getting to Split at the original planned time. I’m very upset that I’m going arrive more than a day late to my destination and that I was blatantly lied to by the Iberia agent at JFK, never ever going to book a flight with Iberia again."
Pros: "Was very lucky and had whole row of three seats to myself. Also time zone change so flight was only really 1 1/2 hours instead of 2 1/2 hours."
Pros: "The attention, food and entertainment available on board"
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: "Turist class is now low cost class too"
Cons: "Overall a very uncomfortable journey"
Pros: "Check-in was good, no queues. I arrived about four hours before scheduled departure time and check-in had been open already for an hour. In Mexico City Airport I had missed a flight three days earlier as I'd been observing the departure screens and they'd failed to update the status of my aircraft: this time I was informed of the gate at check-in. Flight was on time and didn't do anything scary. I was lucky as my neighbour found another free seat so left me with more room."
Cons: "I've found Iberia to be uncaring. This flight was much the same. The food and drink service was cheap, and I felt the attendants didn't feel like they had to try to give good service. The new entertainment screens kept coming on, and I kept turning them off as I wished to sleep. Eventually I discovered they were being triggered by the electrostatic charge on the pillows that I was rearranging."
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: "Arrived 10 min early"
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat in the exit row and as soon as we took off someone from another row snuck into the exit row without paying and the flight attendants totally ignored him and he sat there the entire flight for free. They don’t give you so much as a glass of water for free and the luggage took 45 minutes to appear after landing. I certainly wouldn’t chose to fly them again if I had an alternative tho they are better than that horror Vueling whose seats were so close together that I was unable to sit with my legs straight because the leg room was so little."
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."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Confusion at boarding gate with different groups being called with no clarity - overpriced for 1 way Trip"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "The plane arrived safely, it will get you where you want to go."
Cons: "Like everyone says, you are cattle jammed in a sardine can. Barely any leg room and I’m 5’3. Other thoughts: the plane was old, my seat had a lump in it, zero entertainment, food was over priced. (3 Euro for a tiny water). This may seem petty but ultimately the appearance and function of the plane represents their company as a whole. From my first impressions, I’m thinking as a passenger is: I just hope the age and appearance of the plane isn’t reflective of their repairs and maintenance work as well."
Pros: "Cabin crew did reseat a passenger when there were two tallish men in same row."
Cons: "The seat on the LGW to MAD leg of my journey was very painful and uncomfortable. Seat pitch was very short. I have never seen such close seats in 45 years of flying including bargain airlines let alone more pricey higher quality airlines like British. Iberia was supposed to be an extension of British. When I arrived at MAD I went to the Iberia desk and tried to make an upgrade to their "business" class which was not up to the level of British's Premium Economy. At the Iberia desk at MAD, or online, or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole round trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! years.This was RETURN part of my journey! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time at MAD when I landed, online, or on the phone. British also said that I could not upgrade just the first (MAD to LGW) leg of my return journey. I would have to upgrade the LGW to TPA also. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. Emergency evacuation would be very difficult for all pax with the short seat pitch. My having to sit sideways with my legs in the aisle would make it more difficult for other pax to to evacuate in an emergency. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years. British should be aware that bad experiences with partner airlines tarnishes their reputation. As a premier airline British should pressure partner airlines to maintain seat pitch at no less than 32 inches which is still tight for many people. Since not all partners have equivalent classes of fares, British should allow mixed classes. For example on a TPA to MAD round trip journey, it should be possible for the transatlantic legs to be at Premium Economy prices, and the short legs LHR or LGW to MAD at business class prices. Feel free to contact me."
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."
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: "The movie selection was okay. The plane didn't crash. Our luggage arrived safely."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized and took very very long. Thus we left late. The crew wasn't particularly attentive. We were given seats in the last row and couldn't recline at all for the long flight. Since we booked our seats over six or seven months ago this was a disappointment. Because we were in the last row we got the food last. It wasn't particularly tasty. There was no choice in food. They just dropped some beef dish on or trays. The woman ahead was a vegetarian. The flight attendant told her her only option was to eat peanuts. Extra water was never offered. The breakfast sandwich with ham and cheese was inedible. It was cold and tasteless and difficult to chew. I've been on about 30 international flights. This was one of the three worst ever."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Business class service, there were no pre flight drinks served. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Flight time and efficiency was fine."
Cons: "BA doesn't give food. Must purchase... No problem!! BA doesn't accept USA or China CC or debit. I was starving! After using on earlier flight, I knew I could use Apple Pay. Old, dumb, inconsiderate, rude flight attendant wouldn't even attempt trying alternative payment. She humiliated me. I was uncomfortable, embarrassed, hungry, and furious the entire flight. Never ever again! British Airways is incompetent!"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No priority lane for frequent flyers at MAD, no lounge at IBZ to use if your return is on BA (thought that was the same company?) Rude employees. Flight still not credited to AA 6 months later."
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."
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: "Iberia should do something about its check-in process, it seems way below the industry standards. 1. Online check is only worth if you don't have any luggage. If you do, there's no point of doing that, because there's one line for both check-in and luggage drop off. 2. If you arrive to the airport 1h45min before the flight (LOCAL flight!!!), you'll be among the last ones to check-in, because you will spend about an hour in the line (there's just two people at the register: one for economy and one for business). In the end everyone in the line will get checked in (thanks for that), but the flight will be delayed and Iberia will blame the security (which takes 5 min to pass, unlike the check-in process."
Cons: "Last flight of the night always running late"
Cons: "My first time on easyjet & it was not easy."
Pros: "I landed alive"
Cons: "No information about the gate until you have tk run across the airport to board"
Cons: "Delayed to and from London..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours, the boarding was just people rushing downstairs and onto the breezeway, and the seats were just ok."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew very unpolite My reservation was for me and my husband and the gave us separated seats"
Cons: "Quality of service Long lines Very caotic Terrible experience"
Pros: "The ground staff who helped my mother were just amazing. So kind and considerate"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Cons: "3 hours late and very little information. No refreshments provided."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarkation"
Cons: "Poor seat pitch. But only a half hour flight so wasn’t really a bother."
Pros: "Plenty space in the cabin and decent leg room on standard seats"
Cons: "Cabin crew are not very warming or hospitable feel like they are just doing their job rather than offering customer service which should be high on any airlines priorities when people are 33 000 ft away from comfort"
Cons: "No delays!"
Cons: "More than one hour delay"
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent"
Cons: "8 hours in the air."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Was delayed by one hour due to fog (not airlines fault, but a nuisance nonetheless)"
Pros: "On time. Price."
Cons: "No vegan food just crisps or alcohol"
Pros: "Fast easy hoarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crew can be a bit annoying"
Pros: "Not much. I think anything we liked was about the airport staff, not the easy jet staff. The customer service lady was efficient, but not helpful and kind of rude and all she kept saying was “well everyone else made it”. The plane was also not full (I believe she said 60 people, maybe 58 not including us)."
Cons: "The plane was departing at 8:25 and boarding at 7:55 according to the ticket. At 7:57 there was no gate announced for the flight yet, so we went to the bathroom, came out and saw our gate and headed there. We got the gate wrong, but were only about 5 mins out of the way, so me and my 70 year old grandmother ran through the terminals and we got to the correct gate at 8:16 (less than 20 minutes from the time the gate was announced) and they would not let us on. Easy Jet’s policy (which we have a picture of) is that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure, but we did not even have a gate until less than 20 minutes from the departure. We did not hear them announce our names or last call (until the minute before we got there, and it did not seem like if they would have let us on if we were one minute earlier either). After this whole ordeal and being at the airport on time and through security in time, we went to talk to the check-in person to see what we should do. We stood in line and did not get called up (3 people did not have customers but were not calling me up), so I asked and one girl reluctantly said I could see her. As I was telling her what happened, she got a phone call, answered it in the middle of my explanation, and then chatted for a few minutes with another coworker about who was working and who was going on lunch when. After she hung up, she looked annoyed at me, and I told her again what happened, and she said she could help and to go to customer service. At customer service, we asked to see if we could get on the next flight which wasn’t leaving for over 7.5 hours, which they said we could but would have to purchase our tickets and luggage all over again. The person working was mostly professional, fairly efficient, but pretty callous overall. On top of all this, when they pulled our luggage off the flight (somehow they can board a flight of 60 ish people and still have time to remove our luggage), they pulled one of the wrong suitcases off so we had to go collect our luggage at or destination, and someone else went luggage-less. Ultimately, my grandmother’s first European trip and this was the worst experience we’ve had so far, but after $200, 6 hours, and tears from both of us, we made it to our destination and will never fly Easy Jet again."
Pros: "Very efficient. Staff helpful."
Cons: "Extra cost for hold luggage"
Pros: "Efficient, fast, decent legroom as we were on the exit row."
Cons: "No frills. No drinks or snacks. Everything is an extra charge however the flight was super short, so no big deal."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to French ATC - not much Easyjet can do about that. Then boarding was delayed for an additional 30 mins while we waited outside the terminal. Then we lost our slot because of the delay in boarding. Then we had to wait in the destination airport for another 15 mins for a gate to disembark at. Overall, a frustrating journey but what is only a 50 min flight."
Pros: "Todo estubo excelente"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed. No in flight service."
Pros: "Crew and plane were good"
Cons: "Why do they call us to the gate and then stop us from walking to the plane for ages."
Pros: "Very affordable flight with the basics to fly. Crew were polite and professional."
Cons: "No entertainment, no reclining seats, pay for food."
Pros: "Very helpful friendly staff would definitely be using them again"
Cons: "I liked the ease of use on the website,once I arrived there friendly staff from start to finish which helped the flight go by so much better"
Cons: "3 h delay"
Pros: "So fast, so on time"
Cons: "The other travelers that did not read that they could only take 1 bag on board amd insisted on taking purses too, and they had to be told repeatedly ..."
Pros: "Staff were especially helpful at the check-in desk, ushering us straight through as we had three small children."
Cons: "Had to stand even whilst the plane pushed back waiting for staff to deal with fitting a child seat for the row in front that ultimately they were unable to achieve. At no point, even after they had failed to fit the seat, did they say it was ok for me or two of my children to sit back down. All attention was on the passengers they were dealing with directly."
Pros: "Efficient check in and bag drop. Flight attendants were professional and accommodating."
Cons: "I sat in seat 1A, near the door, and froze. Changed seats with a lady so she could be with her children. I originally had seat 1D. I am surprised you charge extra for that seat. If one of the children would have sat in seat 1A I am sure they would be sick with a cold in a few days."
Pros: "speed of flight and friendliness of the cabin crew"
Pros: "Was inexpensive. Very friendly staff. Easy trip"
Pros: "Flight crew was kind and helpful"
Pros: "Ha sido una muy buena experiencia. Bastante cómodo y suficiente espacio entre asientos."
Cons: "No hay internet, ni tampoco entretenimiento. A veces los sobrecargos son un poco exigentes."
Pros: "I liked the flight crew, and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "I wish there wasn't a charge for luggage, or it would be better if check-in luggage was cheaper. I didn't try food or entertainment, but the flight was short so it wasn't really necessary."
Cons: "Before entering flight we were requested to keep bags in the carry on. This information could have been delivered when making first check in! Lack of courteous manners."
Pros: "I had the window."
Cons: "Wish I was told up front that I essentially had no seat. Wouldn't have booked it. Price not worth the stress of having to figure out last minute accommodations. Even though I had accommodations in a different location. Having to wait to be last to know if I was boarding was miserable. Justine honest with customers from the onset."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly flight attendants. Quick check in. The APP worked great for our boarding passes."
Pros: "Rough landings on two flights. Long waiting time outdoor and the queue was not properly managed."
Cons: "The queue."
Cons: "Didn't like cabin crew on the homeward journey ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, they changed the gate at the last minute I had to run fom One end of the airport to another. The food in the plane was not nice and expensive"
Cons: "Fairly cramped seats, constantly trying to sell me stuff at ridiculous prices"
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "Deceptive and evasive baggage policy. Was prepared to and paid for bags in advance but no warning was given ot option to pay for a small personal item along with my cary on (hand luggage). Checked in and checked one bag at the airport, of course they didnt say anything, then when in line to board all of the sudden I'm a criminal because I have a carry on and a small personal item. They have no xtra baggage fee for a purse sized item, then threatened me "well the flight is full" nothing mire than scam artists."
Pros: "Some English speaking/understanding Crew available in Italy to help you through the process."
Cons: "It's important to pay for Hold Luggage (checked bags) prior to arriving at the airport. It isn't easy to do once you've checked-in online, so take your time in this process as it could save you an upwards of 35 euros for 2 bags. Boarding process is bizzare, if you don't pay for Express Boarding, you should get in line early! Our experience with passengers onboard was unique- no one cares about what you've stored overhead so keep an eye on your belongings if you have anything fragile. EVERYONE brings suitcases onboard it seems. Confusing announcements once in flight, sounded like a beverage service was on its way but never did. Not even water. Flight attendants walked up and down the isle looking for UNICEF donations. No entertainment except for traveler watching. Ultimately we got to our desitation and that is what mattered. Everything else was just a head scratcher."
Pros: "Panctuality on departure only"
Pros: "That check in goes fast."
Cons: "I payed for extra room for my legs but I got a normal seat."
Cons: "2h40 minute delay."
