Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth landing of the Captain."
Cons: "Service training for the Crews for being more polite and for having smiling face..., please!!! Everyone was angry for hardworking????"
Pros: "Nice crew, flight landed on time"
Cons: "Temperature was very hot and embarking procedure took a while to be completed"
Pros: "Excellent on time, quick turnaround with Canary Air"
Cons: "Air Europa...everything"
Pros: "Friendly crew short plane trip."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Nothing and already didn’t have muy baggage"
Cons: "Ground staff are extremely unprofessional In Casablanca"
Cons: "The hidden baggage fees was a surprise when checking in. I have never not been allowed one check in bag for an flight from Europe to the US. The crew did what was needed but made you feel like they were doing you a favour by showing up for work. Other airlines such as emirates, ethiad, virgin Australia all make a person feel welcome with great attention to detail international flight from Europe to the US. I will never fly air Europa again as I feel they are dishonest. The charge for the headphones is ridiculous when the entertainment is limited (most tv series will have one episode and the shows are old) The food was sub par. The sandwich with one sliver of ham was pathetic and the main meal was lacking with only chicken and rice, a small desert, no fruit/ salad and or crackers with cheese which is the norm on international flights."
Pros: "That it was a safe flight."
Cons: "Plane was old and the seats were uncomfortable even if i paid a premium to be by the exit. I had to pay $250 dollars just to check in ONE bag round trip which is incredibly excessive. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "didn't like the food at all!"
Cons: "the flight was 40 minutes late and then it took more than an hour to get to the gate and get our luggage. I lost a flight that I was connecting. I was told that I had ample time (2 and a half hours) Did not receive any help to connect on time."
Cons: "No tv for an 8 hour, overnight flight."
Pros: "Plane was great"
Pros: "The fly attendant was very nice and helped"
Cons: "The worst experience ever, they charge $190 extras"
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the crew was nice, generally speaking."
Cons: "The entertainment center requires you to download an app before departure but nobody tells you to do so until you're onboard and might not have access to the Internet. Then it requires an update that never gets installed... It's over all too complicated. Dinner wasn't very generous."
Cons: "Excessive baggage fees"
Pros: "The crew, the food the entertainment"
Pros: "It was really comfortable and the food was great, the crew was really nice."
Cons: "There was only like 8 old movies and none of them loaded so I couldn't watch anything. And the Wi-Fi super expensive."
Cons: "A two-hour fog delay in London assured me that I wouldn't make my connecting flight to New York. Both the Air Europa desk attendants at the airport and the customer service agent on the phone took no action, telling me simply that they would take responsibility in Madrid, where I had a layover. Sure enough, I missed the connection, and the Air Europa staff in Madrid were even less helpful, showing practically no problem-solving ability and even less empathy. In the end, I couldn't leave Madrid until 24 hours later and had to cancel half of my weekend plans in New York, frustrating friends and family who were expecting me. Overall, this was a nightmare experience. The indifference shown by Air Europa staff was outrageous."
Pros: "In my opinion this to me was the best customer service experience ever on an aircraft. Crew was polite and attentive. Offered food and drinks which most airlines don't do anymore. A+!!"
Cons: "Leg room was a bit tight for a 6hr flight"
Pros: "I think that good service of a plane should not be paid to watch movies and very uncomfortable watching movie on the phone screen. The WIFI is very expensive and the food looks like hospital"
Cons: "I wish all of the above to improve"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No outlet to charge a phone"
Cons: "Row 35 should not be an option far too tight"
Pros: "I liked the price. Free eine. Dinner ok"
Cons: "My bag was lost, took 3 days to get. And tad checked it. Not sure why, but didn't like that."
Cons: "The boarding was slow and it was hot in this flight."
Pros: "Wide body plane A330"
Cons: "Seats too narrow. No individual TVs, no entertainment, not even a music channel available."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Kayak did not disclose that checking bags would cost extra. We got hit with a 60e checked bag fee at the airport. If it WAS disclosed it certainly wasn't in plain site on the mobile app. I checked back on the app to see if I had missed it disclosed somewhere but I still couldn't see it. So it's almost false advertising. Kayak should protect its users. Also, our checked bag that we paid the extra money for arrived late! After our flight was delayed over an hour by the way! Kayak should protect its customers better. Or at least make sure they're informed"
Pros: "My baggage didnt arrive"
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding attendant was lacking communication skills. Crew was fine, but I asked for a sleeping mask and although the flight attendant said he'd see to help me, he never returned. Not even to say, he didn't couldn't help me. Food (I only ate breakfast) was less than appealing. Movies were all old. Seat was so slim, every time we touched our tv or pocket, the passenger in the front seat was upset."
Pros: "Fell asleep for almost the whole 2.5 hour flight so I'm with it."
Cons: "Can't thing of anything"
Pros: "Air Europa honored my SkyTeam Elite Status!"
Cons: "We board to the plane via a bus. we were at the bus waiting to go to the plane for more than 10 minutes. A bit long, specially if you have been travelling already for a long time....like me (I was coming from Miami).The bus is not too comfortable....you have to stay still on your feet with a lot of people"
Pros: "Great plain, new comfortable clean, crew was fantastic, helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Food was good but could be fresher"
Pros: "Great prices without feeling herded."
Cons: "Boarding could have been easier. Back of the plane should board before the front of the plane. Also, don't let people at the back, use the space at the front. Use the space above your own seat!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 2hours. Our flight was supposed to depart at 01:15am and until 2am pilots didn't show up. The flight finally took off around 3am....such a bad experience in the mid night"
Pros: "OK for a short flight"
Pros: "new dreamliner, staff pleasant, wine service very good, seats comfortable, electronics in good order."
Cons: "no accom for business or tsa precheck in security lines, Very limited business lounge, food there was very poor, bathroom facility limited and quite old. the online situation is bad. could not get seats as the website said was within 48 hours of flight, but it was not, calling is not helpful, plus you need to speak spanish."
Cons: "Food. Enterteinment."
Pros: "Nothing. Totally dissatisfied."
Cons: "They could have made a better effort to get me on that plane in London. After the facts unfolded, I got the impression it was a race thing."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The checking in/boarding process was absolutely horrible. Attempted to check in through their app to avoid the extremely long line and it wouldn't accept our passport numbers. After finally receiving our boarding passes, the kiosk for our flight read "Gate Closed" and it seemed to be miles away. We got to the airport well in advanced, but due to the long line and fear of missing the flight, we didn't have time to shop at duty free or get food within the airport."
Pros: "I arrived."
Cons: "No entertainment. My husband's system was missing buttons. The person on the next row couldn't lower table. Might need maintenance. My husband and I paid for upgraded seats but they were given away. We had to fight to sit together. Not very happy."
Cons: "The staff was not professional and extremely rude. After the flights were delayed and canceled...they were not accomodating and staff barely could speak my language English. It was very terrifying not being able to get help all alone in a foreign country."
Cons: "I did not like having to go through security procedures twice nor in the long walks both at Gatwick, Madrid and, worst, the mess at Miami International airport mile long walk and shambles of a passport control"
Pros: "The airplane was amazing brand new!"
Cons: "The crew was ok, I wanted to give her a glass of water I didn't want to drink and she refused and told me I had to wait because she was busy... Then she never came back, so I had to drink it anyways to avoid it from splashing my neighbor. Another crew member was kind enough to bring me chamomille because I wasn't feeling ok so some crew members were really nice others really dissapointing"
Pros: "Standard seat. Crew engaging and entertaining without compromising safety or comfort"
Cons: "Everything optimal"
Cons: "Delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "EasyJet are generally efficient and feel like they have the passenger in mind."
Cons: "Not sitting cooped up in our seats waiting 45 minutes for a slot."
Cons: "Arrived late, I lost my connection, costing lots of money"
Cons: "The plane was grounded they got another plane bussed to it, standing on the staircase in the pouring rain, it was cold all the way"
Pros: "Appreciate that the situation with the Virgin flight meant that safety checks had to be completed before we could take off. Cabin crew were very chatty, but a free drink or packet if peanuts would have been appreciated. Had a similar delay with a BA flight in June and they gave us a soft drink from the bar as a gesture of goodwill."
Cons: "Once airborne, it would have been good if the pilot could have made up lost time and got us to Malta with less of a delay. Bloke next to me was downing beers and either had a stunning hangover or raging cold. His eyes were bright red and his breath was hideous. Made the whole flight a really unpleasant experience."
Cons: "Just not good enough for business travel. Stick to ahipping holiday makers who have a bit more flexibility on schedules!!"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Minimal leg rooml"
Pros: "Scheduled to depart at 19.50, left at 01.50 and arrived in Barcelona at 5am."
Pros: "Everything went well, got on plane quickly and had room for case above."
Pros: "Similar to my last booking, EasyJet was unable to process my checkin. I will be adding this entire booking as part of my fraud claim against Kayak, which will include costs incurred for the two additional bookings I had to make."
Cons: "Nothing to add here"
Pros: "Easy checking in"
Cons: "Delays of 1.5hrs, slow food service onboard. Uncomfortable seats Typical easy jet"
Pros: "I am certainly purchasing speedy boarding again. Stress free!"
Cons: "Out of easyJet's control but air strikes in France resulted in an hour and 20 delay on the tarmac. The pilot was nice enough to let passengers view the cockpit which was a good way to help pass the time."
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Delay in boarding for no explained reason"
Pros: "Daniel the long stay car park bus driver a real gem. he told us where he would drop us off, to ask anything we did not know ( that is if we knew we did not know) and best of all he told us were to find the pick up point when we returned."
Cons: "I did not like going to the long stay carpark north terminal it adds quite a few additional minutes on my journey, I usually use the LtP in south terminal . Also very few spaces left in zone Z even at 6 am!!! I only had hand luggage and I could not see any escalators so I had to wait for lift which was daft. Then as I had already checked in had to ask where to go next...."
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Speedy boarding was shambles"
Pros: "It's easyjet so no expectations really"
Cons: "Late take off with very poor info in the airport. On the flight it was impossible to tell what that air hostesses said. Apart from that it was Ok."
Pros: "I cancelled the flight 30 mins after the booking"
Cons: "That the search engine changed the date i wanted to fly as there were no flights on the 28 Dec. So I cancelled my flight. I had problems with the easyjet cancellation process online. It wouldnt let me in! So I had to do it over the phone. The proccess was very stressful"
Pros: "The check-in and boarding were cery quick"
Cons: "The place seats were a bit dirty"
Pros: "Staff were lovely and very attentive, and frequently passed through with bags to collect rubbish so you didn't have to sit with it for hours. Overall it was a relatively comfortable flight despite being a bit on the cramped side. A female crew member handled a disruptive group promptly and very calmly during the safety demonstration which others may have just ignored."
Cons: "Seats don't recline and padding is very thin. Food is overpriced (£2.50 for a tea, £14 for bacon roll and drink with "free" crisps) brought my own food so wasn't an issue but it was extortionately priced and put me off buying any other snacks or drinks. No entertainment. Unfortunately boarding was late and a bit chaotic, which led to a half hour wait after flight restrictions were placed."
Cons: "The delay and the fact I didn't have a seat because of overbook!"
Cons: "Overbooked flight"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "We waited 1.5 hour in the plane. They didn't even offer a glass of water. Also, they didn't let us take our luggage with us and when we went in there was a lot of space available in the cupboards above the seats."
Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "Is it really necessary to charge for even water?"
Pros: "Quick simple process"
Cons: "Not very comfortable."
Cons: "Slow buses and delays getting on and off. Flight delayed by 30minutes. Luggage took an age to arrive"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "No sucked"
Pros: "Cheap fare. Friendly crew. Don't book a budget flight and expect First Class facilities."
Cons: "I'm 6'3", so found the seats a little cramped. Bearable for the 2 hour flight from London to Murcia. I wouldn't want to go much further in those seats. Food and drink onboard is ridiculously overpriced."
Pros: "Great at moving lots of people everyday so the whole transportation part is honed experience of getting people on and off aircraft efficiently to keep busy schedules on time."
Cons: "Walking off the plane onto a bus and waiting. Only getting our baby stroller back at baggage claim meaning someone has to carry the baby on top of hand luggage. Other airlines have the stroller available as you get out of the plane."
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "Said I could add hold baggage on line, but nowhere given an option to do so, so had tp pay twice as much at the airport."
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"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Although I had a child and was at the boarding gate in time,boarding was a free for all. We were also left waiting in a doorway with baby in the cold and with the fumes of the plane. The food was good but although I was on the first few rows with one of the first to request food some of the selections were not available. The fold out tables were also very dirty and the plane was uncomfortably cold"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late; and there was no room for my cabin bag except at the back of the plan. Their cabin bag policy is not consistently applied"
Pros: "It's nice to have some snacks and food available"
Cons: "There was no fresh food available that didn't have milk or meat. That is, nothing for those who don't eat animal products. Only peanuts, pot noodles, etc."

Pros: "It went fine. Did not have food though."
Cons: "The chairs are not comfortable"
Pros: "Absolutely no information given by airline staff or airport staff."
Pros: "We had 2 hours and 45 mins delay due to technical issues as they had to change 3 aircrafts before we start boarding..."
Pros: "Good all round."
Pros: "Everyone can has to put liquids and cream into a small bag, which is so unreasonable. All my liquids are less than 100ml, they forced me to throw many things away! I never had any flight experience like this before!"
Cons: "The answer I heard from the guy in the airport : "they should have tell you this in Israel"."
Pros: "Easy and convenient"
Cons: "Clarity of front and rear entry instructions."
Cons: "Easy jest sold me ticket when wasn't sure they will have enough seats.after spending 3 hours to get to the airport and pass check in and security i have been told right on the front of the plane that there is no seat for me. They offered me next day flight from Luton when my original one was from Gatwick! They even didn't want to make refund and wanted to give me flight voucher.pleased after they have been told i will make a post in social media they made the refund. Never ever with Easyjet.no mayer how much will cost me!!!! Shame on you Easyjet!!!!!"
Cons: "This sucked."
Cons: "Seats far too small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and everything was on time"
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: "Was an hour late."
Pros: "Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Over three hour delay for mechanical issues! Also, check in was a big pain. Bought tickets through vayama. Not recommended."
Pros: "The person I was sitting next to."
Cons: "Everything. Horrible experience at Gatwick and witnessed one staff member being very condescending towards a guest and made her get off the plane for Vuelung’s mistake. Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Short flying time"
Cons: "Communication with flight delay"
Cons: "There was nothing about the trip to like. I still have not made it to Agadir. The flight in Denver was delayed two hours, causing my family to miss all connections. This I turn required me to fork out $1000 additional to make it to my final destination."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Horrendous experience from checking to the airport. Be aware when trying to check in online, not only posible if you don’t pay a fee to choose seats. Therefore you are unable to check in until the last minute, and as they overbook the flight, if you don’t pay, You risk not get into the plane."
Cons: "boarding was slow"
Pros: "Because kayak did not alerted me my flight had to be moved to Miami since is the only city that provides passports the same day. This extra expense costed me over 400$ in hotels gas and extra parking costs."
Cons: "Kayak services were terrible and I do not plan to use them again. The website should have alerted me that I needed a passport valid for longer than 3 months to my flight for Spain."
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "I have not gotten my baggage for my flight I have been here 3 days after I landed"
Pros: "Good but not the delay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my coach from Barcelona to valencia and had to pay €34.50 for another ticket can you please try to refund me this money."
Pros: "The crew are so helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Our flight was ridiculously delayed due to fog no fault of the airline but the communication was terrible"
Cons: "Seats are like deck chairs with no leg room"
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Barcelona"
Cons: "Extremely poor service by the cabin crew. They were extremely lethargic and slow with service. So much so that numerous rows of seats with young families were never served. No announcement or apology, they just stopped serving as they needed to prepare to land. They knew from the start how long they would have to serve drinks/snacks but didn’t care and definitely did not go out of their way to ensure everyone would be served. The worst service or total lack of that I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Staff and smooth fligfht"
Cons: "Really long delay with hardly any information of when takeoff will be"
Pros: "we reached our destination alive"
Cons: "We sat on the aircraft on the tarmac for two hours, no explanation. Food and drink were served 20 mins before landing, some people didn’t get a chance to have a drink. Staff were disorganised confused and rude. My debit card was handed to another passenger because the steward had no idea what he was doing. Beyond awful!"
Pros: "Seats were clean"
Cons: "Delayed flight which lead to then sitting in the plane on the runway awaiting a time to take off. Flight attendant didn’t serve the back half of then plane with drinks. Luggage Carousel kept changing."
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: "Nothing.... Very poor. Generally Vueling has a poor image but I took a chance nothing has changed"
Cons: "On board the plane I was told you have to pay for all the food drinks quite abruptly maybe because I had shorts on and a tee shirt the lady in question thought I did not have much money.....Never go by how somebody is dressed that's my advice to your airline staff...."
Pros: "On time professional crew"
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin online due to having an Australian passport, very odd and meant we got stuck in a very slow moving que!"
Pros: "Safe flight, good leg room"
Cons: "Delayed departure, delayed boarding"
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: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Plane took off an hr later, not many vegetarian or vegan meals to choose from, my legs didn’t fit in my seating area..."
Cons: "Referral to Vuelungs site by BA for check in. Slow and difficult process to retrieve boarding pass."
Pros: "Although I booked a flight on what I thought was British airways it was some off brand airline: Vueling very disappointing to show up at Gateick to check in at BA and be redirected to the equivalence of Spirit airlines in the USA."
Cons: "It said British airlines and was a vueling airlines flight. I would equivalent this to booking a flight through Kayak on Delta showing up to Delta to check in and being redirected to Spirit airlines!! Completely misleading, just glad I didn’t have to pay for a vag as I would on Spirit. No water, snacks offered pretty bare bone airline!!"
Cons: "Very little legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours was unable to catch my connecting flight in London to Barcelona. Had to buy another flight ticket in London, wait another day, pay for a night a hotel to get to my destination in Barcelona. I was supposed to arrive in Barcelona on Saturday April 1st and did not get there until 2 the following day. Will not use this service again."
Pros: "It was comfortable, clean and efficient."
Cons: "The crew didn’t know f they had any vegan food."
Pros: "Furious, Vueling is always late!!!"
Cons: "Always late,, they don't care!!"
Pros: "Staff were fine, lovely to check in online and not have to worry"
Cons: "Once onboard we sat for nearly an hour going nowhere"
Pros: "Excellent check in . Before time arrival."
Pros: "Easy boarding and smooth flight."
Pros: "on time, easy to do, price"
Cons: "everything worked out well for this flight"
Pros: "Comfort and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Everyone told to board at the same time but they no one being boarded for over 30 mins. So left just standing in a long line for ages. Why tell us to board before you’re ready to board anyone? And why all at the same time and not groups of rows?"
Pros: "Made it to a new country safe and sound. Was nervous at first but relaxed once everything started going."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Everything else! Where am I supposed to put my legs?"
Pros: "I like very much weather of Barcelona which is ideal for me.people of spain very cooperative with excellent attitude."
Pros: "The low price and civilised flight times. Had no hold baggage."
Cons: "Attempts to get extra money by not allowing check in before 7 days without paying extra for choosing seats."
Pros: "Left on time !"
Cons: "Could not buy a beer as they “ran out” of alcohol! Cramped seats and could not position myself comfortably as just no leg room."
Cons: "Everything was Ok, staff, ladies are elegant and pleasant. Planes are on time. Could not be better"
Cons: "It was so uncomfortably cramped on the back row that my knees were numb by the end of the flight. I am tall but not ridiculously so. I think there should be minimum standards for legroom that exceed what was available on this flight."
Pros: "All of it"
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."
Cons: "Zero service"
Cons: "2h delay for an already late flight. landed at 2am."
Cons: "Very very small amount of legroom Flight was delayed c.90 minutes, there wasn't a lot of information and eventually were told they had to use a different plane, which may have explained it's quite poor old condition."
Pros: "Efficient way to get to Paris"
Cons: "Small. Narrow seats. Late flight"
Pros: "Flight empty, crew good."
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew excellent, especially as they dealt with delay due to earlier medical event"
Cons: "Not really. Although pushback delayed, arrival was 10 minutes early"
Pros: "Ryanair works very well if you follow the instructions. Check in day before departure - Don’t bring too big or too many bags onboard. Pretty perfect flight for us."
Cons: "Fellow passengers not preparing for check in and bringing too much luggage then complaining for 10 minutes while everyone else has to wait. Ryanair only had one check in / bag drop. Should be automated or more staff. Took forever. (Ok 30min and only 3 ppl ahead of me in queue)"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly, priority boarding was super speedy and the food was served promptly (to my neighbouring passenger not me)."
Cons: "The seats were dirty and the plane could've done with a clean, plus I ended up with stiff knees because of how squished I was."
Cons: "Was late for 1.5h"
Cons: "The website. It kept going over the same thing and I couldn’t do what I wanted to."
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"
Cons: "The staff are snappy with the passengers - she tried to take my coffee away from me - this was my 4th flight in 36 hours so I needed to finish it so took it back quickly !!"
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."
