Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. They sat me in the last roll on the left with 2 seats. I could not recline the seat and I had to travel sitting up right all the way from Spain to Brazil. Horrible!"
Cons: "They should have offered the empty seats to the passenger as soon the plane closed to take off."

Pros: "Nice crew, flight landed on time"
Cons: "Temperature was very hot and embarking procedure took a while to be completed"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Too long ago!"

Pros: "Overall plane stability"

Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Food."
Cons: "No USB outlets"

Pros: "Plane was great"

Pros: "They give you free pillows and blankets."
Cons: "First, this airlines charges up to $150 for the first checked bag. They don’t even inform you of this at any moment while purchasing you ticket. You find this out when you get to the airport. Second, they charge you for everything in this flight. They say the entertainment is complementary, but you have to pay for headphones. On the shorter flights, they even charge you for water!"

Cons: "Modern"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I was ticketed on AirFrance/Delta, but I guess they are a part of Skyteam and the plane was Air Europa Old decrepit aircraft, that had years of accumulated dirt between seats and such No personal TV screens Food was as bad as it gets for the snack, though the main meal was as they all are except more frugal. Headphones were available for 3 euros- never had that occur on an international flight. I will always ask if my ticket includes Air Europa as an operator and avoid them if that is the case"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "It was a long flight and for a period of 3 hours if you wanted anything to drink you needed to go look for it. They should have come around with water every 2 hours is my suggestion"

Cons: "A low cost company trying to compete with bigger company and prices too high for what you got."

Pros: "At least this A330 had seat-back IFE unlike another A330 I've flown with AirEuropa, but the selections are very limited."
Cons: "Limited selection in the IFE."

Pros: "Price paid"
Cons: "Food and drink options were mediocre. Also limited entertainment options..."

Pros: "Crew was great, however boarding could be improved. Too many checks and waiting to board."

Pros: "The crew was helpful. The protracted headrests were nice for sleeping."
Cons: "The planes were pretty antiquated and the seats were hard and uncomfortable. They were no oxygen ports which was troublesome for long 8 hour flights. Lack of fresh air! Only 10kg weight limit for carry on luggage."

Pros: "Relatively on time"
Cons: "Chairs where uncomfortable, food was poor quality."

Pros: "Good service and comfortable flight"

Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "Every flight was at least an hour delayed. We were insanely late for our connection flight due to a totally unnecessary delay at the first airport. We then SPRINTED across the whole Madrid airport and then when we arrived to second plane was TWO HOURS delayed. The staff always seemed to be working, but was completely inefficient in getting anything done. It took them 20 minutes to respond to our notice (we pressed the air attendant button on our seats) and then told us we couldn't get snacks because they were giving out pizzas, which took another hour. Every single part of our flight was delayed and inefficient... with no reason ever being given. It was pretty miserable overall and I will likely never use Air Europa ever again."

Cons: "Every single person that worked there from front desk to flight attendants were sassy and rude on both my flight there and back."

Pros: "My baggage didnt arrive"

Pros: "Everything was fine! I slept most of the trip as I was lucky enough to get a window seat. The food was okay and I actually quite liked the red wine I had."
Cons: "Can't complain! As I said for the way there, I would prefer not to have to pay to pre-pick my seats, but we choose the random option and I still got to sit next to my cousin (who I was traveling with) for all 4 flights of our trip."

Pros: "Timeliness cleanness food movies"

Pros: "Air Europa honored my SkyTeam Elite Status!"

Pros: "departure from JFK to Madrid was on time"
Cons: "Comfort is not equivalent with price. Very tight seats. On the way to Madrid no personal entertainment system. On the way back personal entertainment system was very, very lagi, additionally reset itself during movie fief times, and from where I was seating other people had the same issue. Coordination at airport was also not the best after landing at JFK, because we spend almost 50 minutes in airplane waiting for docking."

Cons: "Food can be improved"

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!"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "All went well. As above"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The food was good, service was great, flight was on time, and the staff was very helpful."

Cons: "I particularly hate this airline as the flight teams always seem overworked and under prepared. The flight attendants were yelling at all the passengers and threatened to kick people off the plane for trivial reasons. At the end off the day I guess you get what you pay for as this was the cheapest flight available and the service was mediocre at best"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food. Enterteinment."

Cons: "Any long flight should have provide wifi for its passengers."

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: "On time. Plane well kept. Staff friendly and efficient. And the food was surprisingly tasty."
Cons: "No individual videos. No power outlets at your seat"

Cons: "They closed the boarding doors early and I ran thru the entire airport to get there and they wouldn't let me on because my flight was delayed. THE WORST"

Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours and I've missed very important meeting and event I had to attend to In NYC!"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "No entertainment for long flight except mr bean. The way to Madrid was much more enjoyable. Same airline. Oh and wifi=30$ for 50 MB. I use that in 2 min so way too little data with each package."

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."

Cons: "Impossible to confirm flight online. Seat assignments split us up, including our children When we were finally able to be seated together it was 3 in last row an one in 2nd to last where attendants kept bumping into seats, making noise etc. 9 year old son's monitor didn't work after we bought headset. Took many hours and multiple requests for assistance and refund. Crew left 9 year old son off of flight manifest resulting in his detainment by homeland security st JFK."

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: "probably nothing, everything felt cheap"
Cons: "food bad by any standards, clumsy stewardess spilling drinks, very long boarding, very poor entertainment choices"

Cons: "I didn't enjoy flying with this company!"

Cons: "This sucked."

Cons: "Seats far too small and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and everything was on time"

Pros: "we landed safely"
Cons: "need entertainment system. need complimentary drinks and snacks need comfortable seats"

Cons: "The flight was an hour late with no announcements made in the terminal"

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"

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: "A bit late getting underway but flight crew courteous, plane clean, deboarding efficient. Overall, reasonably comfortable efficient budget airline"

Cons: "boarding was slow"

Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "I have not gotten my baggage for my flight I have been here 3 days after I landed"

Cons: "When we got to the airport, the gate info wasn’t on the screen. We found a seat and waited until the time it said the info would be available. When the info was available, it said the gate was closing in 10 minutes. You have to pay for everything. I ordered a meal, but there must have been a language barrier because the stewardess sold me a meal and extra sandwich, when I only wanted one. The seats don’t recline."

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"

Pros: "Crew"
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."

Pros: "Nothing"
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"

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"

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: "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."

Pros: "Perfect"
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."

Cons: "Seats were so small we could hardly fit. Airplane was extremely hot inside. No leg room at all for 5he middle seat and window seat passengers."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Unconfortable seats"

Pros: "Efficient, great value"

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"
