Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"
Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment system, free adult beverages and boarding process"
Cons: "I don't like that they have you pay extra for picking seats that have no extras. No preboarding. No extra legroom."
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "Food and beverage choices excellent"
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."
Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."
Cons: "It was late leaving."
Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."
Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"
Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats and quick flight, great combination for a long trip."
Cons: "It was too warm. The air above was not cool"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow, crew told us there was nothing they could do to speed it up, it plane was late, unfortunately when we arrived in JFk we had to wait about 1 houre to get to the gate."
Pros: "leg room! excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "long lines. delays waiting in hot jetbridge"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Didn’t get the seats we paid for. We should have been in row 3 but ended up in row 30."
Cons: "No AC and awful smell"
Pros: "We arrived only about an hour late?"
Cons: "We boarded late which seems to be the norm for Iceland air. Usually when an airline is a few minutes late departing they try and explain why and then make up the time, but we received no explanation for the late boarding, or the even later departure, or for why we lost even more time in the air."
Pros: "The attendants are all nice and efficient!"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Boarding via bus just takes forever, get a legitimate jet bridge. Also the airport has about 20 seats at each gate for 80+ passenger planes, leaving a lot of people sitting on the floor."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The seat bottom cushion was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Ok price"
Cons: "No checked bags included, but this was unclear at the time of purchase, even though it was an international flight."
Cons: "Boarding at KEF needs to be more organized."
Pros: "Pillows and blankets free of charge."
Cons: "You had to go through their customs to change plans. Then you had to board a bus to get carried over to your connecting plane. There was not enough time allowed between flights to do that. They did not have enough bathrooms for all the flights coming in at the Iceland airport. Iceland Air is basically a travel agency in an airplane for Iceland. A lot of pushing by the company to stop in Iceland for a few days and buy Iceland products. It was a lot of hassle to cross the Atlantic on Iceland Air, and I will try not to use them again."
Pros: "Got home safely"
Cons: "No meal was provided. Captain's announcement was barely heard - poor PA system or he or she did not speak clearly"
Pros: "Loved the personalized tv in front of me and plenty of space above me in the middle seats!"
Cons: "There were no snacks"
Pros: "The beet salad and the bouillabaisse were both excellent. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. Wide selection of entertainment choices."
Cons: "Our connection from Zurich arrived as boarding had begun in Reykjavik. When we arrived at the gate, it looked like business class had already been called, so there was HUGE mob gathered about the gate including small children. An employee worked her way through the crowd randomly checking passports and marking boarding passes. Eventually we made it onto the shuttle which drove us out to the plane. I wouldn't like to fly Icelandair overnight because I wouldn't be able to sleep at all in the business class seats since they don't recline that much."
Pros: "Spacious and great service. I will fly Icelandic again."
Pros: "Inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "No inflight meals"
Pros: "Poor communication. Old planes. Late departures and arrivals. And the staff has zero f@;$s to give."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The lights in the cabin were great set up to look like the Aurora"
Cons: "Offered 1 drink and no snack. Rarely do you see the crew on their flights"
Cons: "Again, there was no jet bridge to board the plane in Reykjavik. When we arrived in New York, it took 1.5 hours for our bags to arrive on the baggage carousel. That is an absurd amount of time to wait for your bags, especially when the crew's bags were unloaded from the plane within 30 minutes of landing."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was really nice and enjoyed the Iceland layover information. Crew were professional and attentive."
Cons: "Felt like a budget airline, so don't expect any free snacks or the ability to carry on large backpacks that you normally could on other airlines."
Pros: "Better movies assortment and also TV Cooking newtwork"
Pros: "Entertainment was broken the entire flight; unable to charge electronics; food available for sale was really limited. All in all, not a great flight."
Cons: "No acknowledgement from the crew or apology about broken entertainment system."
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport was the worst for lines, delays, and boarding, You are bused to and from the terminal/plane."
Pros: "Free movies and interesting Iceland travel videos, glacier water, peaceful music."
Cons: "I didn't like one mass line for all economy tickets when it came to boarding- I prefer airlines that call people to board by group. Less hectic."
Cons: "Extensive delays"
Pros: "They left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Maybe, if not a meal, some snacks."
Cons: "Airport in Iceland severely overtaxed. Too many panes and people, not enough infrastructure"
Pros: "The service was superior. They made sure my younger daughter were occupied and gave a small gift and snack. The movies were great way to pass the time, overall experience were great! We would be a return customer for sure!"
Cons: "Nothing really, we are very pleased!"
Pros: "Staff was very nice and I loved that I actually didn't' have to pay for luggage. I was also offered a free drink."
Pros: "The entertainment was really terrific, selection was good and the equipment was brand new."
Cons: "I felt like it was bumpier than other flights I've been on. I know that's highly subjective and a product of weather but it felt like it was excessive. There wasn't a lot of communication about conditions from the flight crew like I've had on other flights. It took forever to board."
Pros: "I liked that they provided bottled water when boarding. The seats were comfy and had sufficient leg room. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I think that for a flight of this length, a complimentary meal should have been provided. I had to purchase a meal. While it was satisfactory, I felt that $15.00 was excessive."
Pros: "See previous review.. Best of the best."
Pros: "I loved the informative videos about Iceland! I had planned to watch them all, but my video screen stopped working for awhile. I thought about switching seats, but I ended up sharing headphones with my boyfriend and watching some movies instead."
Cons: "Baggage claim took over 1 hour."
Pros: "Excellnt service, fast boarding, great communication"
Cons: "Took a while to take off,"
Cons: "I paid a lit of money for the flight from JFK and there was no food on the plane."
Cons: "The attendant taking our tickets to board was very obnoxious. I complained to the crew chief who agreed her behavior was unprofessional."
Cons: "The seats in premium economy were extremely uncomfortable and because of this I doubt I will be flying Icelandair ever again."
Pros: "I was worried due to the negative reviews about the airline , but the flight was on time, the cabin comfortable, the crew friendly, and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't serve a meal or man the flight, but that's what you get when flying a low cost carrier. No frills."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized."
Cons: "Seat 8G does not have a window."
Cons: "When we arrived at Keflavik airport the terminal was immensely crowded with several flights due to leave the US at once. It was overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable and there was a 30min+ wait to buy food from the only shop. As a result we did not have time to grab a bite to eat between flights. My partner was subjected to additional TSA checks which I am aware is a random check and a nescessity but due to the amount of flights departing for the US this took an extra hour, and delayed our flight. I'm thankful that Iceland Air didn't leave without us but it was an immensely stressful experience that I don't wish to go through again."
Pros: "Generally well run and a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "In addition to the above when i finally got to JFK my luggage was still lost"
Cons: "Delay on boarding"
Pros: "Entertainment very good - lots of good movies that I had not seen. I love that there was not an extra charge. The service on the flight was good."
Cons: "The boarding process in Reykjavik was just awful. First we had no warning that Gate D would require such an extensive wait, so we spent too long in terminal eating and then panicked that we might miss our flight. Next there was a problem boarding our plane. There weren't enough buses, so we spent over an hour standing in a cramped line that snaked down the hall in an extremely crowded airport with people trying to squeeze though us. It was really uncomfortable. The worst was the crew waited to process people and send them in to the waiting area until a bus arrived, so this added to the wait time. I think tourism is popular in Iceland now and you all need to figure out how to make your systems better. I loved Iceland but I wold seriously need to think hard before booking another flight with you."
Pros: "it was a good flight within airline standards"
Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Pros: "One particular member of the flight crew (Jennifer Foster-Moore, I think) was stupendously kind and helpful. The cabin service manager (a young gentleman) was also very helpful. The ice-cream bar mid-flight was a nice touch."
Cons: "The equipment for this flight is a 747-400. Hence, the personal entertainment system is old: no games, and the video can be shaky."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "I wish I’d have an aisle seat, but flight was full."
Pros: "It was wonderful and great!"
Cons: "No seat choice even at check in time."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, the boarding process was efficient. Heathrow Terminal 5 was chaotic and there are minimal amenities once you leave the main terminal to reach your gate."
Cons: "This was a codeshare flight operated by British Airways. The plane was an older, uncomfortable 747-400. I'm not sure how old it was, but there were ashtrays affixed to the doors of the bathrooms. It departed and arrived close to an hour late. There were also a number of hyper social passengers onboard who gathered in the aisle or near the exit doors drinking liberally and socializing loudly. While the excellent flight crew tried to manage them, they were undeterred. Food was mediocre. My entertainment screen didn't work, the passenger in front of me fully reclined their seat prior to takeoff (during the delay) and didn't return it to upright until moments before landing. All and all an unpleasant journey."
Pros: "Crew was attentive to all passengers."
Pros: "Crew is kind, polite and patient. Food portions are adequate. Entertainment is on par on upgraded 747s to other aircraft in the fleet now."
Cons: "Be careful of the Chicken Curry main. Wasn’t expecting it to be extremely spicy. Seat pitch is tight but generally comfortable due to the unique headrests of these new seats. USB power was provided. Arrival into JFK was terrible. BA’s T7 is so crowded and dated I could literally touch the ceilings above my head while waiting 2 hours for immigration crammed into desolate conditions."
Pros: "Crew polite and accommodating. Food OK"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours on tarmac. Reason unclear. Seats uncomfortable and shabby. Entertainment system down for large part of trip. Window shade difficult to open. Plane needs upgrade."
Pros: "I like everything."
Cons: "Check in was slow. There was a long line, only 3 counters were open and then one person behind one counter chose to chit chat with a co-workerwho stopped by for about 10 minutes unmindful of the people lined up and waiting to check in."
Cons: "Bumped from flight although booked months in advance. Completely screwed up connecting flight as a result. Polite but inflexible."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. The plane was clean and prepared with blankets and pillows. Updated movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We missed our connection and british had booked us automatically on the next available flight which was helpful. However--- we paid to pick our seats and we got stuck in both middle seats. I also got skipped on the first round of beverage service. The entire crew was congregated in the middle part and when they finally made their way back to the cabin for trash I asked the flight attendant if I could please get a beverage as I was skipped. He said yes let me gather this trash and ill be back. He never returned. Then everyone was served their meals and I then was also skipped. Flight crew congregated again in the middle and my sister and I had to wave our hands up in the air to grab anyone's attention so I could get my meal. At that point they were out of the vegetarian option and I got a small oh we didn't mean to skip you comment. Pretty disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Was so late that I was rebooked from JFK to LGA. By the time I got to LGA they wouldn’t allow me on that flight because I was too late to check a bag. Then another 4 hr delay to the next flight."
Pros: "All great!"
Pros: "Nothing about wheelchairs"
Cons: "When arrived they don't take wheelchairs"
Pros: "BA flight to JFK was delayed by 3 hours and it was not made up for either. We got to JFk at 3:40 as opposed to landing at 12:40pm. It was very inconvenient. Service was slow and patchy."
Cons: "3 hour delay in flight...they kept us on the plane forever"
Cons: "No thigh support"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I felt very safe on the plane because security monitoring in London was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Portion of food for dinner inadequate. Offered chicken and pasta but ran out of pasta. The man next to me wanted pasta but got chicken. The woman in front of me however got pasta even though she was told there was no pasta. She insisted she could not eat chicken. The flight attendant able to come up with pasta however. Most of the entrainment screen around me on the flight not working. Some however came on later in the flight."
Pros: "polite, efficient"
Pros: "Nice, new plane. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Not many food options. Also, seats/legroom appears to be getting smaller. I am petite but still felt cramped."
Pros: "Left on time, helpful professional staff, main meal was good. Overall excellent airline"
Cons: "After 7hrs, the "before landing" snacks into JFK are crisps, chocolate, I suppose it does the job...latest cut backs. Chess game beat me :)"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I was randomly picked and searched before boarding the plane because I wasn't a white person. The flight was shaky as hell too."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and attentive ."
Pros: "I really appreciated the size of the seats, the hot meal service, the attentiveness of the attendants, really the whole experience especially since I had been dreading the whole thing. I have spinal disc problems and consequently leg pain and difficulty sitting, especially in cramped spaces. I upgraded to WTP especially for that reason and was not disappointed. If I ever fly again, if BA goes there, that's going to be my choice."
Cons: "I liked everything about the flight."
Pros: "Crew were per usual all very professional."
Cons: "Older equipment without USB or outlets: deal breaker in this day and age."
Pros: "perfect.... loved the aircraft too ... Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet"
Pros: "Was upgraded to Premium Economy which was a pleasant surprise. The cabin crew was lovely and the flight was pleasant"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "Old old entertainment systems. My TV wasn't working for the first hour of the flight. Crew had to keep restarting the entire plane's entertainment system in order to finally get mine to switch on. Plane was also very old"
Cons: "This was the worst trip ever! Delays on both ways!!"
Cons: "Would like more choices for music to listen to."
Cons: "Returning to us and customs......NY airport sucks"
Pros: "Big airplane 747. O"
Pros: "Hostess friendly and attentive"
Pros: "The flight crew was formal without being stuffy. Gracious without being too familiar. (Although, I had an interesting -- and fun -- conversation with a great flight attendant, Suzanne on flight BA0115 on 5/21/17. Give that gal a raise!). Excellent service. Clean cabins. Lovely menu followed by delicious fare. Overall, great experience!"
Cons: "The aircraft is illogically designed i.e. the awkward arrangement of seats in Business Class makes for an annoying obstacle for passengers who want to leave/return to their seats. But when they do settle in, it's as comfy as a cocoon."
Pros: "Very upscale aircraft, Polite staff and overall nice flight."
Pros: "I was blocked and was not given permission to choose a sit when checking-in"
Cons: "general boarding en mass.prefer orderly by "zone" boarding"
Pros: "Lots of luggage space, even in the back. Infotainment system takes away the pain of flying steerage class."
Cons: "Was in the final row of a 777-400 series. Super small 4 across seats and limited recline."
Cons: "Just a bad overall experience"
Cons: "Huge delay!!!!!"
Pros: "For long flights, a 3 hours delay made it a painful journey"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "See above."
Pros: "Smooth travel"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything"
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: "No delays, better food, updated plane"

Pros: "A Mix Of Spanish and Hungarian Staff. Overall Freindly crew did the best with what they had to work with."
Cons: "Poorly maintained aircraft, all most everything was broken and dirty!! No inflght entertainment, screens, controls, and programs did not work! Torture on a 9 hour flight!! SEats small, tight & broken. Toilets dirty un maintained."
Cons: "No USB outlets"
Pros: "Plane was great"
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"
Pros: "I couldn’t have wished for a smoother flight for both ‘legs’."
Cons: "Again, the entertainment offering could be better for the translatantic flight."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "cramped chairs and an attached box under my seat limiting foot space. Also i didn't like having to plug into their wifi and pay a fee.so i didn't use it. couldn't figure it out either since my phone had been stolen at the MAD airport and all I had was a kindle fire."
Cons: "The plane has no entertainment , we had to download an app. That should work once on the air. It didn’t , the flight attendant said it was due to many passengers using it at the same time"
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: "Crew was great, however boarding could be improved. Too many checks and waiting to board."
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: "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."
Pros: "The flight was very affordable and AE offered direct flights both ways (from Miami/Madrid & Madrid/NY)"
Cons: "The food wasn't great. And the flight attendance could've been more outgoing and friendly."
Cons: "Food can be improved"
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: "Old plane. Poor entertainment. Average food. Average staff."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The entertainment was a little frustrating. The screens were only in the middle section so if you sat on the sides, it was really hard to see. There was also no outlets available on a 7-8 hour flight."
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: "The movies I watched"
Cons: "The time it took to board the plane- we also had depressed seats. I will never fly air Europa again."
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: "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: "Blanket and pillow meal ok staff friendly and attentive"
Cons: "No boarding call headphones sold crush to get on flight"

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"
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: "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."

Cons: "everything worked out well for this flight"
Pros: "Comfort and friendliness of crew"

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."
