Pros: "Good services!"
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."

Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."

Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "Flying these days is as bad as it gets. We made it, that is what I liked."
Cons: "Had bought a ticket that allowed me to check in a suitcase and to chose my seat. The choosing part does not happen as Iberia chooses for you the day before the flight and tells you you can change what they chose but for a price. Seems deceiving. Flight attendant on flight was rude to me and others."
Pros: "All ok"
Cons: "Free WiFi never worked !!"
Cons: "My entertainment console went out right after takeoff. I can’t sleep on a plane, and I waited 5 hours for the attendant to finally reboot it. And one rather surly, overweight attendant with attitude"
Pros: "It was a non-stop flight, so we good home more quickly than going to Spain."
Cons: "Very little leg-room. We were 3 small people, and I felt sorry for anyone with long legs."
Pros: "The plane didn’t have coach puls class that I paied for and they gave me an upgrade to business class! Great Surprise!"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the flight was delayed over an hour with zero explanation as to why. just sat in the hot plane with no reason or explanation."
Pros: "The premium economy does help for Long lights. Mine was BCN to OAK and being a y’all person the extra legroom was much appreciated. With the low cost of level I would fly again for sure"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken meal"
Pros: "The movies and the leg room seemed better then normal"
Pros: "The cool thing about this airline is that it’s dirt cheap to get from Oakland to Barcelona!! I will say tho, you do get what you pay. We purchased the most basic flight and that’s really what it was. Tight leg room and lots of people. If you’re over 5’5 I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting extra leg room if it’s available. Aside from that. The flight was cool and the staff was nice!"
Pros: "Good organization and time on flight."
Cons: "In 10 hours never offered water."
Pros: "Crew did get us on standby; more legroom than trans-Atlantic flight"
Cons: "6 hours too late"
Cons: "Madrid to Tampa... Got the nursery. Lots of crying babies... must be immigrating to the US. Why don't they put all people with babies at the rear so the rest of us can nap? Not IB's fault, the customs at Miami came to a halt for an hour. 2000 people standing in line, missing connections. There was a shift change, most employees didn't show up for work. was told 'It's a special day'. Fortunately I was at the head of the line. A few of us were routed to someone who was surprised to see US citizens. As a consequence, the always slow MIA failed to transfer my luggage. Still waiting for it... Air travel is such a pain these days. I'm sure more would fly if it wasn't such a hassle."
Pros: "Easy boarding On time Very organized"
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent entertainment options."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and not enough leg room."
Cons: "The service was aweful. Right from getting my ticket, to getting served on the flight. Staff needs major improvement."
Cons: "A porter checked our bags at the gate without asking us whether we were traveling beyond London, so the bags were never transferred to the transatlantic flight nor did they arrive in SF. It wasn't necessary to check them because there was plenty of room in the overhead bins when we got on the flight. We immediately asked a flight attendant to help when I realized they might not go through and he said he spoke to someone who caught and tagged the bags to go through, but it still didn't happen. It would have been easier if he had just brought them to us on the plane. Another women's bag was taken with all her baby supplies and bottles in it for a 16-hour travel day. Very frustrating for all of us."
Pros: "Great and on time"
Cons: "Nothing all good"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 hours. No apologies. Nothing. Interesting thing: NYC to Madrid, 3 hours late, missed connection, no apologies., nothing One week later: Madrid to NYC: 3 hours late, no apologies, nothing. IBERIA AIRLINES: Never again!"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Due to delay of previous flight I missed my connection for which I had a 3 hour layover prior to delays. I was put on another flight out of LGA upon arrival but was not given a travel voucher even though I was told tmi had one in my envelope. Trying to get someone to issue a voucher almost made me miss my new connection."
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: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "No movies or videos. Children crying and screaming."
Pros: "Only nonstop flight from Madrid to LA"
Cons: "Iberia, please renew your crew or give them some hospitality training"
Pros: "The extra leg room in the exit row. In spite of the fact we had to pay extra for it, it was well worth it. The crew was courteous and professional. The flight was on time."
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
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: "Good selection of entertainment and crew was very nice."
Cons: "We had to sit on the plane for almost an hour because our gate wasn't ready."
Pros: "This wa a short, one hour flight. it's hard to rate the experience with a flight this short."
Pros: "On time and great service by crew"
Cons: "No help from kayak vayama to get additional baggage, seats"
Pros: "movie and tv show selection was great. Helped bide the time"
Cons: "A little cramped for my legs."
Pros: "Special ordered meal was good, and seat was comfortable. Movies great!"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized - signage very misleading. Cabin was stuffy and warm until the plane started moving, and during the trip it did not cool off sufficiently. Would be better if they told passengers about when meals will be served. Stewardess poured old coffee in the basin while people were waiting to use the bathroom. Seat was splashed with coffee. Disposal for paper was stuffed. FYI Breakfast was inedible from ORD to Madrid."
Cons: "Space between seats too small, the food was not good."
Pros: "Flight attendant didnt help to pup up my luggage; even water was not free"
Cons: "Seat recliner broken at 21B so seat will not stay in upright position. Passenger bouncing through out flight banging my knees. Passenger behind continually kicking my seat, passing people grabbing seats and jerking it. NOT A FUN RIDE"
Cons: "food not bad but could be better"
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal and did not get it. I had nothing to eat for 15 hours"
Pros: "Standard EU flight, on time"
Cons: "Had to buy food and the sandwiches were soggy. Wouldn't accept credit cards at first, staff tried to push cash payment until finally getting a different credit card readee that worked."
Cons: "Went well"
Pros: "NOTHING !"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Business was overbooked and Iberia's team at check-in totally clueless and hopeless. During the flight, crew was impolite and unhelpful. Finally, my seat was broken -- and had to be manually inclined."
Cons: "flight was delayed, still don't have my luggage"
Cons: "They lost our bags wnd my whole trip is ruined. I m out thousands of dollars because I have things booked that I cannot go to because I have no clothes and I cannot leave my room,"
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: "Kind staff"
Cons: "Cushioning on seats worn out - getting uncomfortable. Slightly confusing on who was boarding when; crowd was blocking entry. The path to the plane was not covered, despite the rain and the suitcase had to be left on a cart without cover - I ended up with wet clothing in my suitcase."
Pros: "I liked everything about my experience on four Iberia flights. The boarding was fair by groups and they didn't allow people cutting the lines. The planes were new. The food served was very good and had a great variety of tastes to please different cultures."
Cons: "Was late Inlike other airlines. Iberia wont even give ou free snacks"
Pros: "After boarding the crew made efforts to use all available good seats in the front of the plane."
Cons: "The front of the plane, even in coach, has better space between seats. The middle and back of the plane are quite crowded. There are no screens, the only entertainment is the magazine. The food options are expensive."
Cons: "they don't provide even water for the passengers"
Pros: "Poor service, staring from punctuality. 3 and a half delay without any explanation until all passengers pressured the staff and we were told that it was due to aircraft malfunction. The staff were very unfriendly when asked about information regarding the cause of the delay."
Cons: "Change management and train staff. The Barcelona airport was in very poor state, without air conditioning and restrooms in very poor state."
Cons: "There was a long delay, longer than the flight itself. In a rush to catch up (or go home) they did not clean the plane before boarding, not even superficially."
Cons: "Was an hour late."
Cons: "This is a budget airline. It was a decent plane, the crew was very friendly. Being a budget airline, food on board has to be purchased separately. There is no entertainment on board. The seats didn’t recline. Overall it was good value for your money."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. And the departure time kept changing. To the point that we had to run for the flight"
Pros: "Vueling is a great airline - very hip and cosmopolitan. The crew was young but intelligent, hard-working and helpful"
Cons: "The boarding process could be better"
Cons: "Chaotic under staff and poorly organized. Forced to rush and nearly miss flight despite being at airport well in advt"
Pros: "They made up for lost time"
Cons: "Some turbulence and lack of communication between the crew and everyone else"
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was great. Seats were comfortable. I dropped my cell phone on the plane when I left and the stewardess held it for me. Absolutely saved my night and I’m so grateful to her. All my information about my apartment were on it. I’m not sure what I would have done had it been lost."
Cons: "The coffee wasn’t free."
Cons: "We had to wait for someone... Couldn't leave with out them. Departed an hour late."
Pros: "Short flight and pilot seemed very comfortable during turbulence"
Cons: "Apparently congestion at Barcelona was the reason. The gate crew are clueless and not helpful. I was struggling to understand what was going on. Kayak was showing delayed flight and neither crew or veuling website was getting updated.."
Pros: "Flight delayed almost 4 hours, everything else was fine"
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 4 hours, everything else was fine"
Pros: "Crew good"
Cons: "Booked extra legroom didn't get it."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The ground crew was pleasant and helpful, especially in meeting the needs of handicapped passengers."
Cons: "You have to pay for anything you consume in the way of food and drink... even a glass of water to take a pill. My wife and I fly frequently and this will be our last time to fly Veuling. Other than the lack of any free beverages, the legroom is minimal, there is no TV and no electronic recharging at the seats."
Pros: "the hospitality of the crew"
Pros: "The seats are good"
Cons: "They keep revising the plane departure time on their website/app but refused to announce changes in the terminal. Kayak sent me 10 updates about the scheduled departure. The airport had the initial one and no more"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no gate information till 18:40 - when flight was supposed to take off at 14:40 - then gate overcrowded by passengers from 3 different flights all to the same place. Crew members didnt know how to handle the situation and over 200 did not board the plane. However once taken to the plane lucky passengers had to wait outside on runway for approximately 40 mins as cabin crew also did not know how to handle the situation. Those with assigned seats did not get them and those with luggage to go in the cabin were informed there was no more space and luggage had to be put in the hold. We finally boarded the plane at approximately 8:40 but could not take off for another 2 hours where we were stuck on a small cramped space on a plane full to capacity not having eaten anything for hours with no idea of the progress of the situation. In conclusion I expect every passenger should receive a refund for not only the extrodinary 8 hour delay but for the mismanagement of the entire situation."
Pros: "Randomly given exit row seating."
Cons: "First at the airport they tell us we have to check our carry ons when we had already flown three flights with them with those same bags as carry ons, then they criticize us for having heavy bags, which they never would have known if we had been allowed to carry them on. Their back up reason for needing to check bags was the flight was overbooked and there would be no room for bags, both of which were false as I personally counted at least 15 seats open and there were at least 6-7 completely empty overhead bins. Finally, it is Kayak that notifies me that my flight is delayed 90 minutes, but yet the airline decides it is a good idea to have us board and then just sit on the plane before finally telling us after 30 minutes of sitting on the plane with the flight door still open that we are delayed another hour. I would not fly them again."
Pros: "It’s a quite flight and good space"
Cons: "No billows at the chairs"
Cons: "Was late, without any notification"
Cons: "Check-in process was a nightmare not well coordinated and took forever"
Cons: "We arrived more than 2 hours too late - this on a 2 hour flight. This can happen - but flight history shows that this flight is too late every day. The seat pitch is the worst of all low-cost airlines in Europe. Also the plane needs a renovation. We are flying regularly low-cost airlines. But non of the competitors is so expensive. Vueling can’t be recommended."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Los asientos"
Pros: "Furious, Vueling is always late!!!"
Cons: "Always late,, they don't care!!"
Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "Couldn't add baggage online with airline Kiwi.com/ Kayak couldn't add it either. Ended up paying 40 euro in manual check in -- too expensive compared to their web 19 euro cost.. they didn't allow me to add even 72 hours before. Not happy with cost and no service."
Pros: "I've lost my job! The flight first thing in the morning should respect that we rely on them to get on time in the morning. One in 3 flights of Vueling are delayed! Ryanair is far better in this point! Today I really hate Vueling"
Cons: "I also lost the train tickets! I had to pay twice for everything. An apology is not enough, it sounds like they are laughing on us!"
Pros: "New plane, comfortable seat and helpful crew"
Cons: "Disembarking in Barcelona very disorganised"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "Price Allocated more leg room On time departure"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Fly with vueling. The sits are extra small, les than normal."
Pros: "Quick and easy, no frills, cheap flights, on time, great between Euro countries but not beyond. Newer airbusses with comfortable seats for short flights not long flights. just make sure you don't check bags, just carry on size. clean and cheap and easy, but don't expect more."
Cons: "It was late and no one told us anything... until we were close to landing that's when the pilot told us why they were late one hour at the gate! unacceptable!"

Cons: "very less leg space which doesn't even permit to head down on front tray."
Pros: "Plane was clean and adequate seating"
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to leave at 8:15 and suddenly was changed and we left at 7:45. Flight attendants then forced us to check our small carry on items despite being told they were for a wedding the next day. Subsequently the bags were lost and then found four days earlier. Fortunately, we found our baggage but had to improvise for the wedding. Airport lost and found said that happens all the time with Vuelling and a baggage claim stub should just be discarded as worthless."
Pros: "All of it"

Cons: "The landing was horrible"
Pros: "Don't know I slept."
Cons: "They were get 6th disorganized at check in and boarding."
Cons: "I was ripped off! I booked a flight for 3 passengers and paid. An email came through requiring I add additional information for my two companions within 48 hours or their flight would be cancelled and NO refund. I have the app and requested text notification, whereby nothing came through. The flights were cx and I had to book 2 new ones or fly alone. When calling to dispute, I could only email. The phone number was not international. The email rely denied a refund. I requested to escalate the dispute but Wasnt ever connected to that individual. In Paris, I attempted to reach the claims dept and was told to email them or call customer service but don't speak Spanish so got no where. Out 267$."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight, had extremely rude staff, and we're not helpful at all. Will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Flight took off late...someone in seats.. luggage did not arrive with plane... we were told different things.. were given wrong gate number.."
Pros: "Flight empty, crew good."
Pros: "I wasn't allowed to fly as the Scottish government said non essential travel wasn't allowed and I wasn't allowed the opportunity to get a voucher for my flight"

Pros: "Great flight at a great price."
Cons: "Land softer"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "Priority boarding and luggage storage."
Cons: "The crew had no control over rowdy/drunk passengers. A shame as young children present. Not one request to calm down and refrain from shouting and swearing. Very uncomfortable and intimidating flight. Will not fly Ryanair again"
Pros: "It was an ok flight, although late in boarding pilot made up time. Good landing."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual"
Pros: "Online facilities"
Cons: "The police for handbags"
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "I paid for extra legroom in row 2?There isn't any and to radd insult to injury the person next to me had been allocated his seat without paying any more than the basic fare.I spent most of the flight in a vacant standard seat which gave me more leg room than than that which I had paid for.It was a total ripoff."
Pros: "Exellent start and landing! Bravo pilots!"
Cons: "the heat in the cabin was unbearable"
Pros: "Queue was long but still boarded quickly,"
Cons: "Providing even simple entertainment for kids e.g. colouring sheets would have helped them cope with the flight."
Pros: "Crew were polite and friendly. Aircraft was clean and comfortable and the price was unbeatable."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Late boarding and twenty minutes late taking off then no staff to meet the plane when it landed in Stansted for 40 minutes so I missed the train I was booked on which cost me more than the return flight to renew my train ticket"
Cons: "Having to now pay and queue for cabin baggage is treating customers like dirt. Flight was one hour late to Dublin so missed my connection. Best not flying with this crowd in future."
Cons: "They don’t accept credit cards from USA."
Pros: "It was exactly as booked, Got rid of bags quickly, boarded easily(priority) crew were fine I expect. I slept through whole flight. Didn’t have any food and didn’t have any entertainment. Took off and landybsng on time."
Cons: "I’m fed up with that bloody music when they land."
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Check in was mad"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight had group of youngsters who should not have been allowed on flight. They displayed rowdy behaviour and swore and gestures throughout flight. Staff did very little to try and stop them until other passengers started to complain."
Pros: "Inconvenient all, no aplogise of delayed Flight as like the turtle!"
Cons: "To prepare on time!! Plz Eeven though I’ve booked more planty of time for next plan, it was late because of too much delayed"
Cons: "RYanair always delayed (1h30 delay inbound, 2h delay outbound), that company is a disgrace"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Service was not great. The baggage allowance was lower than other airlines, forcing us to repack before we checked our bags. Checking in online was mandatory-something that wasn’t very noticeable in the email when we had a million other trip details to attend to so we didn’t and ended up having to pay a fee to check in. Ridiculous. My wife and I were not seated together even though I booked both tickets together. The inexpensive upfront price of the flight is not worth it since they will trick you into paying in other ways."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Paying for hand luggage plus the then obligatory and unnecessary early boarding. having to pay to sit next to my children The warm cold drinks"
Cons: "Was told at boarding gate for a visa check stamp requirement. Admittedly it was mentioned in a casual way in the boarding pass,but wasn't a border control requirement. The airline could have done it there. But was denied boarding, waited for 6 hours to catch next flight and further connections."
Pros: "You get what you pay for, it's a budget airline everything designed tfor you to pay extra"
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay 1 hour delay disembarking due to non-availability of ground staff Another appalling travel experience with Ryanair - they should not be allowed to operate an airline"
Cons: "Departure was delayed over 3 hiurs"
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nearly 3 hours late and no proper explanation for delay. Sorry but delayed incoming aircraft doesn't wash. Also had to wait nearly half an hour upon landing at Stansted before we could disembark"
Cons: "Having to pay to use the toilet on board"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Thę policy to make sure you do not sit with your family and have to buy seats to make sure you are all sitting together. The salaries of the staff are the worst in the industry."
Cons: "Tiny seats, baggage policy is garbage"
Pros: "It’s nice flying into Alicante where often those awful automatic passport machines give way to mails checks so much faster"
Pros: "Price and punctuality"
Cons: "Families have to pay extra to sit together. Children should automatically be seated with their parents. Basic safeguarding standards should be priority, not making more money out of necessity."
Cons: "Delay was make rest of trip worse cos my other communication away without me. And I have to find alternative way"
Pros: "all airline staff caring and helpful"

Cons: "Air stewards, all very chatty amongst themselves but no time for their customers!!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane at the other end, eventually."
Cons: "The massive delay, the move of gates to the other end of the airport only to get onto a bus and then wait 15-20 minutes to get off the bus and onto the plane. Even an offer of free coffee on board would've been nice but nope, just a few apologies over the PA."
Pros: "Crew jokes eased the tension after the flight was delayed"
