Cons: "The entertainment display in my seat did not work."
Cons: "Two hours and a half late and no updates whatsoever"
Pros: "Yes the crew was great."
Cons: "It was a short 2.5 hr flight. Jet blue provided packaged snacks and a soft drink at no additional charge. Other airlines charge for everything. A carry on and a handbag were also allowed which others don't. The seats are leather and have more room. Seems Jet Blue is the last one of those traditional airlines giving more for your money. Thank you Jet Blue ! I am sold."
Cons: "Yes. Delay by 4 hours. I got the notification when I was at the airport."
Pros: "- gave me join seats at desk. - snacks are different and really good. - great entertainment option."

Cons: "Keep up the good work! Bathroom is always clean and smells good!"
Pros: "The crew were really nice. And there was a lot of leg room which is good because I have long legs."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seats were comfortable (I’m 6’4”)."

Cons: "Quality of TV/WiFi could be of higher quality. Can’t think of anything else."
Pros: "Comfort in seats and friendly service"
Cons: "TV movie music"
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "Communication about the delay Snacks has no variety. All too salty."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and crew was helpful."
Cons: "Just nothing extraordinary to note."
Pros: "My wife and I were seated separately due to booking complications. The woman that helped check our bags was able to rearrange passengers and allow our family to sit and fly together. Excellent service!"
Cons: "Arrived 10 minutes early, which can be that unusual, but waited on the tarmac because “the gate wasn’t ready”."
Cons: "Sat in the plane waiting for ac to work for TWO HOURS. AC got fixed but pilot left because he timed out. More delay. Then they called ppl to start boarding but more delay because hey had to clean the plane first. I was late for work. Didn't sleep for over 24 hours. They only gave $100 voucher when delta gave me $200 for a 2 hour delay last summer."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by one and half hour because crew members were travelling to Newark airport from other place. Flight was scheduled at 6:00 PM and Crew members were scheduled to arrive at 5:51 PM. Poor scheduling. Boarding started only after Crew member arrived. Then came the glitch in accounting for fuels filled in the aircraft."
Cons: "Everyone boarded on time and were seated ready for takeoff and we sat at the gate for another 30 minutes before taxiing to the runway. When I got on the plane, it was freezing. It was the coldest flight I had ever been on, and I was told I would have to pay $5 for a blanket. I had come off of a flight from Europe, and was tired and probably not at my best, but the flight attendant was a little snarky with me because she thought I was asking for refreshments rather than to get up and get a jacket out of the overhead. She wasn't really listening to what I was saying. JFK was its usual ugly, no sense of design, loud barking people yelling out orders and a loud alarm at the gate with no one doing anything to shut it off for about 10 minutes. It left me with a headache. I wanted to go back to Portugal where comfort, aesthetics, and human decency were evident."
Cons: "Late and unstable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours , this is the worst experience ever, I would never fly with jet blue again !!!"
Pros: "Did not board that flight... I received emails throughout the day of departure time changes and the last email indicated that they had changed the departure time 33 minutes earlier. I was already en route for the flight when I received the email . When I got there they refused to let us boar stating that we were late!!! The attendants were very rude and not at all helpful! Instead they booked a flight for me the next day at a very early time! I lost out time and money! I had booked a hotel. I will never book any flights with Jet Blue ever again."
Cons: "The seats barely reclined it was very uncomfortable and the entertainment was not the best"
Pros: "Lots of leg room! Flew with Delta on the way up. My 6'5" son and I (5/10") were extremely cramped on the Delta flight, having to sit side ways in the seat for almost 3 hours. Won't do that again. Jet Blue had plenty of room to spare - over 5" to seat in front of us! No comparison!! Thanks, Jet Blue."
Cons: "Lots of hassles at NY airport. Staff did not agree with each other as to what should or should not be scanned...confusing to say the least."
Pros: "Work has me on United a lot. Jet Blue is so much better. Even though we had a 30-Minute mechanical delay, it was still comfortable and smooth."
Pros: "Over all the flight from Richmond Virginia to Orlando Florida was good and even with delays the staff were very friendly and helpful in informing the passengers of what to happen next."
Cons: "Delays! That is all. Huge inconvenience. Overall it turned out okay though."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The shotness of the crew and all the noise slamming around the compartments being slammed contnuously and angrily"
Pros: "The dunkin donuts coffee in a nice touch"
Cons: "None of the TVs worked on the flight. The boarding crew in the terminal was rude and very short with everyone. i had to go up multiple times to ask about my seating assignment and was ignored and then waved away multiple times. And then as boarding began I was given a seat saying they "thought i was on standby" but i never was. i was given a seat in the last row with two other people who had infants on their laps so it was a very tight fit."
Cons: "I had a great flight! No complaints! I didn’t use I flight entertainment, so I can’t recommend either way. The food was good, but I did purchase it. Hence the 4 stars."
Cons: "I wasn’t able select more channels to view and not able to see the live map to track the trip. I think it wasn’t working my."
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Pros: "Nothing.... we had to book another airline to get us home as We were bumped from our flight a few weeks before we traveled."
Cons: "The airline canceled our flight and rebooked us for a late afternoon flight the next day. We had to book a return flight with another airline because there were no hotel vacancies in San Juan, due to the recent hurricane..... Didn’t even get a refund, just a credit with the airline, which they put a time limit on - one year from the original date."
Cons: "My husband & I were in Row 5 & in last boarding group. When we got to our seats, all of the overhead bins were filled all the way back to Row 8. So, we put our suitcases up there. When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase. (No ID inside theirs) I recommend that you board lower numbered rows first so that people in the back rows don’t take the front bins!"
Pros: "The best part of this trip was checking in.. it was a breeze.. I must say the Orlando landing was the best touchdown I've ever experienced..Smooth.."
Cons: "Let's start with getting on the airplane was like herding sheep.. When I finally got to my seat someone was in it.. And I had no place to put my carry on.. The flight was suppose to leave 9:00pm.. we didn't leave til 9:40.. The safety announcement was awful. We cudnt hear most of it.. The turbulence was scary and the noise made me put on headphones to sleep. Once it landed in Orlando the airplane traveled around the entire airport .. It took forever to get off the plane but I was so happy to get off"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Our flight got delayed so American Airlines Auto switched us to a flight leaving a day later with a 17 hour layover. When I called to get it fixed I waited on hold for 30 minutes before I got through. Once we got on original flight they gave away seats we paid extra for and gave us no refund."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent; seat was about what you would expect in economy; the boarding process was extremely confusing"
Pros: "Speed boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a 3 hour flight..."
Cons: "Good airline teamed up with crappy American brings them down. Don't waste money!!"
Cons: "Plane was 1 hour late and missed my flight."
Cons: "Late takeoff caused me to miss connecting flight from helsinki to Tallinn"
Pros: "The nicest cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind. The plane extremely comfortable"
Cons: "Security service in Helsinki is quite unprofessional. It does not understand EU Security Rules for liquids at airports. Where do they find such guys?"
Pros: "the food provided under gluten-free food"
Pros: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Cons: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."
Pros: "Brand new A350 business class was excellent - far better than tired old BA planes. Great IFE and food and beverage service. Excellent cabin crew aervice. Overall, thoroughly good from start to finish (Finnish?)."
Cons: "Amenity kit was a little basic."
Pros: "The original flight was canceled, the stroller was taken away when boarded the airplane, and not seen until final destination. With a 1-year-old and 2 and a half year old, this was the worst ever flight. Take us 35 hours total travel time to get home with 2 small kids, it is a nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and changed to 2 stops from one. We purchased a 1 stop flight because of the kids. In mid season a week before departure, we were notified about the change and it was impossible to get a same priced ticket so close to departure. We bought insurance but even with that was impossible. Looks like a scam. Very upsetting, messed up the whole thing."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "1)Magazine says you under need for modern communication and aiming to improve. There are no chRging ports and no internet. That would help. A little behind the times on that one, do t you think? 2) Getting gangway attached after landing appeared to be very innefficient. Thanks for trying"
Cons: "Crew great!"
Pros: "We didn't make it to Helsinki so I can't say anything good!"
Cons: "Justfly.com screwed up on our reservation and failed to properly ticket our lap child. This caused us to not make the flight! Justfly.com hasn't done anything to rectify this issue!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "No frills but efficient"
Cons: "Food choice limited"
Pros: "Crew service is excellent"
Cons: "Sitting in the cramped economy seats was a 9 hour torture"
Pros: "Liked this flight had exit row with lots of leg room for my 6'6' husband. As we requested"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "It was a very smooth fly,enough space to sit,great staff."
Cons: "The entertainment TV is very low quality ,bad sound and very poor choice of music.One in the front of me didn't work and I used one beside me..I don't take it too seriously,but that is what I experienced and noticed."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. They lean too far back too so that if the person in front of you is reclined all the way, you're quite uncomfortable. I was able to view the TV screen in front of me better than my own because the person in front of me was completely reclined."
Cons: "Hi I try to cancel my flight to tel aviv bat no bady Will to help me Bad castomer Service for kayak app I hope you help me to get my many back Malki"
Cons: "16 hour overnight stop at helsinki airport."
Pros: "The Airbus 330 is an improvement over the Boeing 737 that took me to Europe (via Milan) on this trip. Unlike that flight, this plane is equipped with an updated on demand entertainment system. I attribute the upgraded airplane to the fact that this was a direct flight from HEL to JFK. Still no wifi though... Their magazine says it's coming. Upgrading to Economy Comfort is worth the fee especially if you get a bulkhead seat. Otherwise you are still pretty crammed in with maybe 6" more leg room. But the bulkhead seats are set well back from the wall to give my long legs plenty of room to stretch and get in and out of my seat. My friends in Economy looked miserable :( The chili con carne with rice was an improvement over other airline meals but still room for improvement - mostly in presentation I guess. Lingonberry 'salad' though a bit sour for me, was a nice Finnish dish to sample. Like the cheese and crackers. Departed and arrived on time. Liked the flight tracking that showed you very detailed what you were passing over and even gave us a bit of info and photos about highlights of each region flown over. Nice touch."
Cons: "This plane was such an improvement over the "bucket" that flew me to Europe that it has restored my faith in Finnair as a valid carrier for my yearly trip to Europe - like I said, probably because it is a direct flight to New York rather than connecting to another European (not Scandanavian) city like Milan. I would probably not use Finnair to access other parts of Europe for this reason. (On the departure end, the regional Finnair flight from Milan to Helsinki was also sub-standard.) I do think the check-in procedure is still cumbersome - self check in with bag check, though started at kiosks, still results in a long line just to hand off your bag to a counter agent. A few more agents would likely solve that problem... But it was better than going the other way - JFK was a nightmare! Helsinki only slightly better."
Pros: "Airbus 350, quiet and smooth. Wifi, booking a taxi on board and being met on arrival. Good seats in business."
Cons: "Bag collection was chaos and took too long, it's not such a busy airport"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Special meal was terrible. No toiletry bag for such a long flight. Btw I paid extra for a bad seat."
Pros: "My stay in the air was approximately about an hour from stockholm to Helsinki. They smiled me and gave comfortable service as always . Thanks"
Cons: "It may be not about flying process but airport environment or service. ARN airport was a bit cold even inside of the building . The WiFi was offered only limited time , which was very shorter than I expected but overall status with cosy mood made me as if I were at home . On the other hand , the finnair check in counter had only two , one of which was business and the other was economy it took about 40mins to send my luggage and check in ."
Cons: "Boarding was horrible. We could not get anyone to confirm a gate, then we were delayed and finally bused into the middle of the tarmac for boarding. A lack of information was extremely stressful and unsatisfying."
Cons: "food was about the worst I have seen (with special mention to the coffee served as it was def the worst even for airplanes standards) could not check in online ( web would not allow me)"
Cons: "30 min between flying"
Pros: "They moved my boyfriend and I from the back two seats on the plane up to the front with four seats across the middle! This was amazing for the long flight and allowed us to be very comfortable throughout the flight. Great service as well with three food servings and constant trash pickup."
Cons: "Woman in front talked endlessly"
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude."
Pros: "It was an Iberia flight, sold by Finnair. Pretty full but I had two seats by window to myself. I really liked the personal entertainment system at each seat, with lots of choices for viewing and listening, plus usb port for charming my phone. Food was not bad for economy class airplane food. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "A bit cramped - could have used more leg room. But not the worst I've had."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "I had a seat on an aisle, which was good. But, the TV / video screen did not work. Luckily there wasn't a passenger next to me, and I used that screen. I told the steward, but never got help with the screen. I had to " Lean " for the 9 hours. The bathrooms became gross after 5 hours. I don't need to explain."
Pros: "Good service...."
Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "The fact that I got home in one piece I really like."
Cons: "Planes are old, small tv screens in aisles, older seats and headrests. I had requested Gluten Free meals and on the way to Amsterdam they did okay (besides the snacks). On the way back they didn't even offer me the second meal GF, I had to ask another flight attendant who went looking for it and found one.. so it was there, they just hadn't bothered to look for it. I also never understand why you wouldn't start boarding with the last rows? Is that just me? The aisles are always so crowded when the last rows walk in and there's always a line."
Pros: "Crewmembers were professional and nice!"
Cons: "Snack and meal were not so tasty, and the descending before landing was really uncomfortable."
Pros: "American Airlines flight didn't even have tvs, chairs were old and outdated. Not worth the price. Now days there are some standards that are expected"
Pros: "I thought the BA/American/Finnair flight was excellent. The food was delicious both ways, much superior to United, American or Continental which I often fly. Excellent food, legroom, inflight entertainment (going out my row of seats - well, nobody could get any entertainment access) all was very good. Loved the newspaper choice when leaving Gatwick. I would definitely recommend again."
Cons: "First of all, though this was booked as a Finnair flight, Finnair was never part of the process after the booking. We rec'd an email from Kayak saying we could check in 36 hrs early - not so. Even at the 24 hr mark, we were unable to check in via Finnair - had to go to British Airways. Finnair was not represented at either airport - British Airways. On the return, British Airways canceled our flight (2 hrs before takeoff), and we could not get a non-stop flight home. This meant that we had to change terminals, retrieve our bags at the layover, recheck, etc. which of course, added 3 hrs to the original length of the trip. Where's our compensation? We paid for a round trip non-stop flight."
Pros: "We finally landed safely."
Cons: "Sat at gate 4 1/2 hours before 9 1/2 hour flight. Never heard how problem was resolved. Very bumpy ride."
Pros: "I have a BA - Gold card- BA lounge was good."
Cons: "Comfort- Plans are Old, Entertainments is Worst. BAD BAD BAD."
Pros: "Staff efficient and kind. Main meals good. Snacks/lunch not as inspired. Entertainment options were varied."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a free for all. Seats cramped."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room."
Cons: "Plane was broken and we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to get a new plane. Crew kept awkwardly mentioning during every announcement that the delay wasn't their fault... My husband's entertainment screen was broken and flickering so much that all shows/films were completely unwatchable. My screen began flickering 1/2way through a film."
Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."
Pros: "The crew was great, as always. Unfortunately, my seat mate was very overweight, pushing into my space. No fault of BA except that bigger seats would help the "growing" population of travelers."
Cons: "Bigger seats for bigger travelers. Especially on long flights. Those of us that are less full figured would be more comfortable. Go back to the system that includes one checked bag and one carry on as included in the advertised price. I know that airlines need to be more competitive, but the ala carte for luggage is not acceptable. Instead, offer an opportunity for customers t donate to offset the carbon impact. Thanks"
Pros: "The overall experience was great! I was extremely satisfied. I thought the crew was very kind and the extra touch of bringing ice cream to everyone as a treat was perfect for our family that had to restless little boys."
Cons: "I did find it strange that the only brought the drink cart around once during the 9 & 1/2 hour flight. It was a cost savings approach more than anything. For the crew, I am sure it was also a time savings approach. When going to find another drink, it was clear supplies were also thinning out."
Cons: "The plane delayed by 30 minutes, I was rushed past security to wrong plane in Orlando, making me miss my flight, cue multiple times as the airlines "British Airways" and "American Airlines" bickered about who's fault it was. I'm still sat in Orlando waiting for my flight after losing my hotel in LA"
Cons: "More legroom."
Pros: "Check In went fast, getting through security was also fast. The price was excellent."
Cons: "Small seat, did not recline fully but it was an economy ticket."
Pros: "Excellent service I don’t have nothing to say was amazing"
Pros: "Quick check in online, efficient auto bag check with helpful staff available, Quick efficient boarding, quiet flight less than half full."
Cons: "Being bumped to an earlier flight (7:15 from 11:20), not sure that was BA or the booking agent, but caused alteration of plans and hotel being booked."
Cons: "The other passengers"
Pros: "The drew were helpful"
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac. No vegan meals."
Pros: "The flight was only 3.5hrs it was exelent."
Pros: "Friendly clean and spacious"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "This route needs a bigger plane. Always packed. Only a few rows of business class. Took off nearly an hour late. Economy on BA is very much a budget airline experience."
Pros: "Good flight, no complaints"
Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."
Pros: "It has to be said, the prices were good. But you do get what you pay for...… (in my case, a lot of extra time and stress)"
Cons: "Firstly Kayak is apparently actually LastMinute.Com? BA flight was OK, but not much different from a low-cost airline. Return leg had to be Ryanair and online check-in didn't work (ouch! - you have to pay extra to check in at the airport). I eventually found out (after frantic googling) that Kayak auto-generates an email address for you as part of the Ryanair booking process, and this is the one you need. I spent about 30 mins getting through to LM.Com overseas helpdesk trying to get hold of it. I also had to request hold baggage as a separate process and it took 10 days to confirm this had been arranged (again, I would have had to pay extra at the airport)."
Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."
Pros: "Seat comfortable, Crew was great."
Cons: "The guy in front of me pushed his seat back and the space was reduced dramatically, even for lunch. Screen was not so good, but pprobably enough"
Pros: "Speedy boarding process, very polite staff, good food."
Cons: "Very small serving of drinks, not a lot of entertainment on offer."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the food was good."
Cons: "Being on a plane for 9 hours in those small seats with no leg room is not pleasant, but I don't guess that will ever change. Also, no music to listen to other than United Kingdom bands I never heard of...I tried some... not my thing. Would like to have had some classic rock options, British or otherwise."
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "Flight was safe. Pilots did fine job."
Cons: "Plane was filthy. Crew did not collect rubbish throughout the flight except once immediately after each meal service. I went to the back to throw away my and my seat mate's rubbish, bins were overflowing and untidy. seemed to put out crew members when I asked for a cup with ice."
Cons: "The plan from Philadelphia to Amsterdam didn't have the normal TV screens in the seats ahead of the passengers, which meant we all had one show to watch. :("
Pros: "Food !!the services"
Cons: "The seats not very good and the tv screen"
Pros: "Check in staff and Crew are brilliant. Always pleasant, friendly and helpful. Some aircraft are a little ‘tired’ and a few things don’t quite work as they should. For example my wife’s headphone socket was broken, and therefore no in flight entertainment. But we managed. It was reported to the crew and they immediately set about recording it for attention at next maintenance and changed our seats, so no complaints there. A few of the entertainment screens are scratched, and the controls faulty. But still usable with a little perseverance."
Cons: "Seat row spacing too close. There is little point of a reclining seat because using it greatly inconveniences the passenger behind."
Pros: "The orderly manner in boarding & customer service"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Great service, good / plentiful food, lots of entertainment options."

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "We paid $85 each to have extra leg room - which were horrible seats near the toilet. Which became a gathering area and we were unable to sleep/watch movie in peace. Worst of all was the fact that someone was sick in the toilet (inside and out) the toilet was closed BUT no sign is placed on it so people continue to line up and wait..... unless I told them it was not in use.... this went on for 2 hours!!! A simple sigh on the door was all it needed."

Cons: "The boarding at phl continues to be the stuff of nightmares. Get organized PHL!!"
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Pros: "Got us there"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "The plane was cleaned, the movie was good and the food was good with lower price. It was a no problem flight and on time."

Cons: "Again, hard to hear announcements, and I was unaware that non-alcoholic beverages were complimentary. Ride was a little rough, awakening me numerous times"
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Cons: "LATAM took our luggage from a flight from a different airline that we used to get from Miami to Orlando. They locked it up and closed before we arrived. My friend was unable to get his medicine, I missed vital time from a work contract, and we had to spend the night at the airport waiting until 1pm today to receive our luggage. This is the worst experience I've had with an airline. No one spoken with on LATAM seemed to care. We were stranded without sleep and got no clear answer from the LATAM hotline. There was no mention of compensation for our troubles. I will not be recommending this airline to other travelers aa this has ruines my work schedule and my friend is unable to get his medicine."
Cons: "Delay otherwise average"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Delayed flight, attendants were rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "The lack of organization at he moment of boarding generates problems with the passengers .. A lady started to get angry when group 3 was boarding and she was group 2. She was waiting were group 3 was in line .. It would be better to have it like united that they have lines for all groups."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination"
Cons: "AA changed my flight plans which resulted in a 4.5 hour layover in Philly. The gates were filthy, there is not much selection for in-flight food and nothing for entertainment. I couldn't even find an outlet that worked at the gate."
Cons: "Flights a few hours late, and then the time to turn for the better, and asked the staff, they actually said that I would like to wait, this flight service is really too bad."
"Very helpful when my passport went astray, then finally found."
"Left my luggage behind. Flight attendants were extremely rude. Got charged twice for my ticket and still no refund. Worst airline i’ve ever flew with. This flight was first class by the way and they still managed to lose both my luggage and a couple’s luggage who were seated behind me also in first class. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Lounge closed - last to board for business"
Cons: "Food and Service in Business Class"
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: "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"
Pros: "Crew was good from Rime to Madrid, however my connection from Madrid to JFK, service was not good, i felt ignore when asking for water"

Cons: "Food is mediocre at best and selection doesn't vary."
Cons: "Toilets were extremely dirty. Impossible to use"
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!"

Cons: "Gbhbhfhyhyugfrrfffffgggffccxccccvvgfcvgvggbbvvgcvvv. B"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Ticket had no info on baggage allowance. Got charged $55 for one piece. Website has glitches that would not save passport info. Flight attendant did nothing. Did not ask people to have their seats upright during landing. No food or even water for a 7 hour flight unless you pay. Seat uncomfortable. Horrible experience."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online because I don't have 2 surnames. I arrived at Granada airport early to allow plenty of time to check-in. So did about a thousand other people. There was only one person available to check everyone in for Iberia. It was grateful. Plane was old. Not even a glass of water was offered."
Pros: "I had a problem finding ticket number for a return ticket. It took an hour at boarding but Iberia rep. found it and saved the day. She really cared and got the job done. Can't say enough about this Argentine rep. Also this was an international flight and they did Not hassle us about the weight of our carry on. Last year Etihad weighed our purses with a bathroom scale at the door of the aircraft. Outrageous. Slowed boarding for over an hour and cost passengers an average of $150 - $320."
Cons: "Food was terrible all around. Didn't pass out water during 11 hour flight and all the "good" movies didn't load."
Pros: "After fixing the mistake they gave us two adjacent seats on the plane."
Cons: "I came with a friend. At first we were given 2 boarding passes, both with my name. We continued to security where they found the problem. We had to go back to the check-in counter and they reprinted boarding passes. This time names correct but both for the same seat. Only after a long while they were able to fix it. The Iberia crew barely spoke English. Overall - made mistakes, wasted a lot of our time."
Cons: "The plane was too cold. It doesn't matter they give you a blanket it's uncomfortable and a waste of energy"
Pros: "The crew members were all very kind!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, the wifi was not working the entire 8-hour flight."
Pros: "Short flight and on time"
Pros: "Flight to our destination: sat in exit row for extra cost. I was freezing cold and was told no extra blankets. Also staff were rude and unhelpful telling us to remove all things from the floor for take off and landing ( which i accept is the policy) but since we had nowhere to put them except on our laps (she’s, books, sweaters pocket book) as there is no seat in front for an exit row to put under. The staff member kept saying “up, up” motioning with her hand, but made no offer to assist us in finding overhead space. Upon our return flight, our pre booked exit row seats were switched on us right before boarding in a rude and matter of fact wayand my husband and I were separated one on either side of the aircraft. When we queried this, we were told it would be up to us to switch with the person sitting next to us. Overall very disappointing. I would not fly Iberia again."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nothing, the trip was terrible, the seats were awful and I had no chance to change them as I had to contact the third party. On line booking and seats reservation weren’t possible either cause I wasn’t buying the tickets directly with the company."
Cons: "Anything, terrible flights as they gave us terrible seats."
Pros: "Everyone is doing his job correctly and nicely. Nothing special to add"
Pros: "The plane from Nashville was over an hour late so the flight was changed from Nashville-Philadelphia-London-Rome"
Pros: "Clean plane, pleasant staff, excellent movie selection. food better than most."
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: "On time"
Cons: "No service on board. Not even water was offered."
Pros: "Emergency exit seats. Very narrow though."
Cons: "I don't know what they served us. I wouldn't call that food. Breakfast was even more depressing than dinner. No entertainment system, except those collective screens – everybody needs to watch the same movie. Staff was rude and flight was 2 and half hours LATE."
Pros: "I am of average height -6 feet- and my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Not comfortable but not too bad either."
Cons: "Boarding was extremely chaotic."
Pros: "The in flight movie selection was great. They were generous with providing us wine and complementary in flight entertainment . Didn't have to pay extra to check our bags."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good. But at least they provided us with some. We paid extra foe exit row seats and they allowed someone to sir across from my husband in the flight attendant seat they use during landing and take off. He sat there the entire flight. He was tall with long legs and took away from my husbands leg room which is why we paid extra for the exit row seats. Not sure if he worked for the airline as he was dressed in regular street clothes but annoying all the same."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, bathrooms kept clean, and seats were comfortable. Entertainment was top notch."
Cons: "We kept trying to order water and food from our screens but the process was complicated, long, and ultimately didn't work. The system is buggy."
Pros: "Great crew, funny and friendly. Really enjoyed my first experience on Iberia. The Economy Plus was really nice. I wasn't expecting a preflight beverage. Nice touch."
Pros: "The food and the service"
Cons: "The length of the trip"
Cons: "No help from kayak vayama to get additional baggage, seats"
Pros: "Quick pickup of baggage."
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "The staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The flight was very smooth."
Pros: "Choice of entertainment: movies, tv shows, etc."
Cons: "Wifi was >$50!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Small plane so comforts are limited."
Pros: "El cambio de vuelo en Mx fue un poco confuso pues había que salir a mostradores y volver a hacer check in."
Cons: "the flight over LAX to Madrid was horrible. An old plane, both my husband and I had broken seats, no screens, and no charging capability. The flight from MAD to LAX was much better with a newer plan. I would however, not fly with Iberia again, because the out bound flight was so awaful. So average rating is okay."
Pros: "We were overall very pleased with everything about, thank you!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking was a mess : Could only check in for the first flight, checkin for the second time was available 24h before the second flight, and when I finally was able to check in, it failed. so I had to check in at the desk in Paris. I also was not sure if I had to checkin at the AA desk or Iberia desk : ended up being AA, but you all should be clear about this and say it on your confirmation email for multi company flights. My ticket said Iberia but the flight was handled by AA. Food was awful and no personal screen in the plane, but that's not your fault."
Pros: "Very cheap flight, they fed us a lot on the flight including ice cream and lots of leg room."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Mediocre food choices."
