We barely made it to the gate in time after going through security, etc."

Pros: "Turist class is now low cost class too"
Cons: "Overall a very uncomfortable journey"
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: "The staff was rude and not helpful. Check in was below standard."
Pros: "Price to fly on this airline is very reasonable and affordable. I would fly on on this airline just for that reason alone."
Cons: "Seats are VERY small and squished together."
Cons: "The lack of legroom is a lawsuit waiting to happen. I am 5’10 and my knees were planted firmly in the seat in front of me. I’ve had 5 knee surgeries so this made the tight squeeze even worse. Furthermore, the inability to move is cause of blood clots."

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour leaving Chicago, and arrived an hour late in Madrid. The screen was not updated in Chicago to let us know what was going on. It's a mass of people at the gate, with very little systematic lining up. One luggage piece did not come out on the carousel in Madrid. We had to wait 1.5 hr at the airport to confirm that they would send it to our Madrid hotel. Hopefully it will come. The food was mediocre. Pasta for dinner with little to no meat. Not even fruit. They are clearly saving money on the food."
Pros: "The dinner that was served wasn't terrible"
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane. The movie choices were mediocre. Could have used a little bit more leg room."
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Pros: "I flew business class: the crew and comfort was great; the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Boarding was horrendous: they have the whole flight stand and wait to board! In Madrid, they called to initiate boarding and we stood for 15-20 min before anyone moved at all; business class was then called, and we ended up standing another 15-20 min in the jetway before being ushered into the plane! Even in business class, the entertainment system was poor it's difficult to use and my system froze entirely on the way to Madrid. It worked on the way back, but the selection was relatively limited and poor."
Pros: "The flying crew was OK."

Cons: "No help from kayak vayama to get additional baggage, seats"
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks"
Pros: "I liked that I made it from Marrakech to Madrid in one piece."
Cons: "Everything. People were getting up, switching seats, in people's way, screaming over other passengers. The crew MAYBE twice said something to the passengers but essentially washed their hands of it. They just let them run amuck. Even when going through some turbulence the pilot came on to tell everyone to sit down. No one did, but the air stewards also didn't say anything. Do you know what it's like to have an unwanted man's private area in your face for several minutes while he holds a conversation, though you ask him to move, but he continues? It's disrespectful. Then when boarding, they opened the front and back doors, so people were coming in both ways. People in seat 7A were coming from the back to the front and people in 23C were coming from the front to the back. Literally a handful of people on this flight had consideration for others and let them pass. Others were just shoving their way through, or exhaustively waiting for someone to finally stop talking and get in their seat, so they could pass. It was a nightmare. And still, the crew did nothing."
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."
Pros: "Didn't happen!"
Pros: "Good to eat on flight"
Cons: "Spacing was impossible for someone 6'2" or taller. It was incredibly tight for everyone. Extremely uncomfortable to fly for 3 hours like this."
Pros: "Not muchl"
Cons: "Late Seats were not comfortable No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding and crew was ok. Aircraft also not bad. But five hour delay with little communication or compensation."
Cons: "5 hour delay. Communication"
Cons: "Space and environment."
Pros: "Timely departure and quick boarding."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and staff was not exactly tentative."
Cons: "Kayak sucks. I chose to buy ticket w kayak and took me to vayama (another horrible site). The ticket they sold me, which was not cheap, didn’t let me check in online and didn’t say that I was gonna have to pay 200 euros at airport to check in 2 bags!!!! A disaster everything."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and happy."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable."
Pros: "Flight reservation was cancelled at airport - gate agents could not allow us to board. We were told reservation had been cancelled."
Cons: "Refused to sell ticket from start or at least receive a cancellation ticket for the flight"
Pros: "worst airlineEVER , canceled the flight did'nt offer any help"
Pros: "Nothing on the ground. Prior to boarding there was chaos among the crew members and the public. The flight was as usual with Vueling delayed; for technical reasons. However no one knew what was happening. No crew member gave a simple explanation of what was happening. Order was not maintsined"
Cons: "Everything, like simply explaining to the long waiting passengers what was going on. But Vueling is 90 pc late. They treat passengers as if they could not care less because they are working unhappily We can simply compare with other airlines. Vueling gets first price as worse airline I know."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Kayak never sent me a confirmation of the purchase kd the tickets. We arrived at the airport (family of 7, with 3 kids) and the reservation was non-existing. We were not able to board the flight and had to buy another ticket at a much more expensive price in addition to losing an entire day in paris"
Cons: "Kayak never sent me a confirmation of the purchase kd the tickets. We arrived at the airport (family of 7, with 3 kids) and the reservation was non-existing. We were not able to board the flight and had to buy another ticket at a much more expensive price in addition to losing an entire day in paris"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours delayed. Multiple times I asked for an update and wasn’t given one by any crew member, nor did they make any announcements giving the passengers and update. The other passengers on the plane were extremely rowdy and loud during the wait and the crew did nothing to keep ca"
Pros: "plane was quit new and seats were comfy."
Cons: "check in was a bit slow."
Pros: "Nice staff on board."
Cons: ""I had to call" to add my OneWold frequent flyer number. Cleanliness could be improved. Information in Catalan, as we were flying to Catalonia."
Cons: "Somehow my bag didn’t make the allowance, and I had to pay $40, everyone else had equal baggage and were allowed to use them as carry on except me! NEVER FLYING WITH VUELING AGAIN!!!!!!"
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "Cheap airline, results are what we thought they would be"
Pros: "Getting on a plane. Not the one I booked but got to wear I needed to go."
Cons: "Bought the flight 6 months prior. They give you the option to have a random seat, which i did. Apparently that means if people buy a seat, you might not get on the plane. Because they will sell your seat to someone willing to pay more."
Cons: "Plane late Check in late What a joke first time flying with this joke company"
Cons: "Rude attendant at the gate"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else. This was the worst plane experience ever. The flight was super super delayed (as were several other Vueling flights) and we stood in the bag drop line for over 2 hours because there was no system and everyone was confused. Then when we finally got through they updated the flight status every 10 min confusing everyone cause the time kept changing and no one knew what was going on. Then they finally posted the gate and we had to run to the other side of the airport and then they delayed the flight again so it was over 3 1/2 hours delayed In the end. Then boarding was a mess and the plane itself was pitiful for how expensive that flight was. This is never going to be a company of choice for me. Definitely a last resort."
Cons: "Was late, without any notification"
Pros: "Crew and Flight attendants were helpful, responsive and cheerful before, during and after the flight."
Cons: "I was not able to check into the flight online as the Kayak link sent me to an unknown page. It was not an Iberia flight but was operated by Veuling airlines, however was still unable to check in by going directly to the Veuling website. If you're not going to be allowed to check in online, that is one, thing, but it isn't great to be given a link that doesn't work and then be nervous that you are not going to get on your flight. The boarding process should be changed as it is a free for all and people are waiting in line on the jetway, when really they are waiting for the buses. I believe the plane was at Terminal 2, so we had to switch terminals via bus. Just seemed as though there should be a better process for boarding than lining up down the middle of the terminal or manage the process differently as we were boarding buses."
Cons: "At the check in gate the man made us pay for the luggage we carried on the plane"
Cons: "Delayed again and again"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Vueling—couldn’t figure out how to have us pay extra money for overweight bags It took us almost an hour to get thru the line bc our bags were too heavy, then the agent couldn’t figure out how to charge us for the extra $, so after 15 min, they just let us go without paying Then, it too forever to get thru security THEN, our flight was delayed, but they still told us to go to the gate and board, even tho there was no crew yet And then, we had to go down 2 flights of steps to take a bus to the plane and then take a flight of steps up to the plane. Then, our seats were dirty with cups and garbage Then the captain said we needed to refuel. Said it would take 5 more minutes but it was more like 25"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Checking line with no information, rude customer services, cabin crew very rude and discriminatory system, the flight attendant in charge of the cabin crew made us moved our Carry on three row far from our seats, despite the fact that we paid more for those seats and that we were among the first to board the plane. He made a racist facial expression toward us."
Cons: "I was told that my carry on luggage was too big for the overhead bin and had to pay 35 euro. The flight attendant attempted to fit it in the bin and it fit just fine. So thanks...I paid for something I didn’t have to."
Pros: "Quick and cheap flight from Rome to Pairs for sightseeing"
Cons: "Boarding was moved at the time of boarding and sounds like that is normal so pay attention"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Was made to put case into the hold at the gate, they said there wasn't enough room on the plane, got on, there was loads of space and loads of cases. Got to Barcelona and my Kipling monkey had been removed from case, either in Birmingham or Barcelona."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Boarding too slow and unreasonably delayed flight beyond scheduled departure time. Baggage handling at LHR was dreadfully slow, some 25+ minutes waiting at the carousel for bags to appear after the first few came through."
Pros: "We boarded and left on time, there was room for my luggage in the overhead. This is a budget airline so I wasn't expecting any thrills and thats exactly what I got - a functional, almost comfortable experience."
Cons: "You can't help but stress slightly not knowing if you're going to find a spot in the overhead."
Pros: "I didn’t have the issues checking in that many have mentioned. I did have pay 140€ to check my bags because it wasn’t included in my fare. My advice is prepay for baggage, it’s much cheaper."
Pros: "crew was friendly and timely ..providing regular snack/beverage service on a relatively short flight"
Cons: "beverage/snack service should be complimentary like itbia on most other flights"
Pros: "Good price, on time, comfortable seat, crew was friendly both at boarding and on plane."
Cons: "The only thing i didnt like was that when we boarded, we got on a bus to take us to the plane. I had paid extra for priority boarding and seating but i ended up being one of the last people on the plane. It did not end up being an issue because there was plenty of ovwrhead space for my carryons but it could have been. Wifi would also be nice. Even if i had to pay wxtra for it."
Cons: "An hour late to take off, then the captain didn't turn off the seat belt sign for another 45 minutes in clear skies. My friend had to use the restroom but the flight attendants locked them and yelled at her everytime she tried. Very rude."
Cons: "we had a terrible time flying through connecting flights and on top of that they charged 70 euros for baggage from rome to paris and then we had to check in again at paris, extremely painful and stressful given the short amount of time. i would never ask someone to do this again."
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Selph check"
Cons: "No clear signage at aireport barcelona"
Pros: "Spacious, punctual, friendly"
Pros: "Easy enough boarding... our flight coming into BCN was delayed due to weather, so we were cutting it very close for the connection. Vueling crew took care of our late check in etc."
Cons: "DId not have the food. No wifi or entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Flat out the worst flying experience I've ever had. The bag checkin processes was a nightmare; I showed up super early to the airport, with more than enough time to check my bag and board without issue. The bag checkin line didn't move for over an hour, and while there were still tons of people waiting to check their bags for flights that were soon departing, most of the counter employees packed up and left. When someone pointed out that we would miss our flights, the attendants said "my shift is over" and walked away. At this point, the line broke and passengers started to cut the line, two people nearly got into a fight, airport security even had to come. My bag was finally checked five minutes before the flight left (!!!!!). I was unsure if I'd make the flight, or if my bag would make it on the aircraft. The worst part is that throughout their incompetent checkin processes, the attendants were all incredibly rude. I am NEVER flying this airline again, even if I have to pay twice as much for my ticket."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, boarding was quick, it was a nice flight"
Cons: "As it was a night flight, it would have been nice if the lights would have been lowered so we could sleep and no entertainment if you couldn't sleep was provided"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the flight attendants were courteous and polite."
Cons: "Our flight left 20 min late but we landed on time so it wasn't terrible."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "It is difficult to change the conditions of the initial purchase the seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Don't know I slept."
Cons: "They were get 6th disorganized at check in and boarding."
Cons: "Really not the same quality/level of service."
Cons: "I had to pay €129.00 for an extra piece of luggage a a service free of €162.00. The crew was unfriendly. They did not say hello nor did they say good. Last but not least, they did not provide me with an entry form."
Pros: "Things went pretty smoothly, but nothing exceptional about it. Good to get to point A to point B."
Cons: "It wasn't very clear via British Airways' booking process that I needed to go to the Vueling counter or the British Airways counter to drop off my luggage."
