Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
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?"
Cons: "Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London"
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
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: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
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: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
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: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
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: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."
Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."
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+."
Cons: "the child got the same food as us due i did not make clear i need a child food, now i am asking : is not clear that in that seat is a child of 4 years old ?"
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
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: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
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: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
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 Virgin Atlantic Club was nice. The special security line was a bonus."
Cons: "Selection of onboard movies not very good. The crew was not so friendly. Menu could be more varied. The A340 configuration is not so good for Business class. Staring at other people across the aisle is not so nice."
Pros: "No queues on check in, security nor on arrival. New plane, touch screens, usual abundance of films and food. More drink rounds than last trip. Wifi if you want it."
Cons: "cabin crew very perfunctory. No apology for screen needing resets ( sorry about that would do). Ok but no smiles or personal interaction"
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Cons: "It was late leaving."
Pros: "Excellent in all aspects, to and fro."
Pros: "Pressurising on new plane seemed to make long trips less tiring."
Cons: "New plane's weird electronic window shades had us in darkness with sun up high! Unsettling. Couldn't operate the switch under the window. Very noisy systems such as flaps, wheels, etc. Screaming, grinding banging noises. Address system unhearable & useless."
Pros: "Easy and quick check in"
Pros: "Having had the chance to do many international trips, I've never found an airline as consistently satisfying as Virgin Atlantic. Let's face it, unless you're flying Upper/Business Class, you're always going to be short of room and the food you're served on flights is never going to be something that makes you rave, but I have yet to come across a Virgin staff member who hasn't tried to go the extra mile to make the trip as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Liked foot room"
Cons: "Padded seat belt very uncomfortable.., tv control & pad on seatbelt pushed me into client on left, big gent sitting next to her pushed her into me.., people walked thru isle & stepped on my toes..., why virgin Atlantic moved us & gave refund I will never know...we paid for extra leg rm 4 months ago"
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Claiming that the plane was completely full (which it wasn't), They forced just about everyone to check there carry ons. When we got on board, there was plenty of overhead space. Supposedly, we should've have been allowed a carryon and a personal item."
Pros: "Crew was excellent explaining about the (short) delay."
Pros: "During my first flight from East Midlands England to Amsterdam I lost my baggage by another airlines and the KLM crew was very dedicated and supportive until they found it and check in for me... Many thanks and I wouldn't forget it."
Pros: "Flight all good"
Cons: "Suitcase did not arrive and still not received."
Cons: "40 minute delay at take off on London City Airport for a 50 minute flight to Amsterdam"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process. Clunky landing."
Pros: "Nice short flight, everything was on time"
Cons: "I went from TXL to AMS. There is *nothing* to do in the TXL airprot :-|"
Pros: "the crew was fantastic and really kinf"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "Reclinable seats."
Cons: "The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight."
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "From the boarding process all the way to arrival it was a great experience overall. Brand new planes with free up to date movies. The economy seats truly recline (to what i was very surprised) and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "There's absolutely nothing I didn't like about it."
Pros: "My experience was great. The plane was comfortable and I enjoyed the food and the entertainment provided."
Cons: "Checking in at JFK took a while."
Pros: "The free warm beer was nice"
Cons: "Every single flight was delayed. The actual boarding was usually the time we were supposed to take off. Yes we would eventually make up the time in air, but I figured out they have some weird politics where they give people who are on standby to take other flights for a fee and potentially bump other people off who don't check into their flight super early. Something very "shady" happening with this airline."
Pros: "A tiempo!!!!!!! Gracias"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and we arrived 30 mins ahead of schedule which was a plus. Would definitely fly withy then again. Plus they offered inflight meals"
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was not able to go on this trip because I recently found out I am pregnant and the risk due to the current Zika virus makes traveling out of the question. Aeromexico was NOT understanding at all. Their only offer was a 1 year voucher from the time I purchased my ticket. I purchased my ticket in October 2015 (before the Zika outbreak and before being pregnant) and I will still be pregnant in October 2016 so that voucher is completely useless to me. I basically lost $900. Even though I repeatedly tried to explain my situation to customer service and had a letter from my doctor it didn't matter they just repeated their voucher line over and over. Needless to say I will NEVER purchase airline tickets from Aeromexico again and that is a real shame for them because I have a timeshare in Mexico which I plan on enjoying with my growing family for years to come."
Pros: "Food, AC, service"
Cons: "Wait time"
Pros: "Same as first leg of flight"
Cons: "The terrible experience of dealing with Flight nerwork"
Pros: "Flight crew and stewards were attentive and kind. Seat space on Boeing from LA to Mexico City was good. Ride was fairly smooth from LA to Mexico City."
Cons: "Kayak listed the ticket price at one rate, then when redirected the fees go up by another 100+ dollars! When we purchased the tickets, we were redirected to purchase through airfare.Com -- most unprofessional group I have ever dealt with! Our itinerary changed multiple times with various threatening emails that we must respond and accept new flight arrangements or else we will not have any flights and we'll be charged exhorbanaent fees. I tried cling and got reps that spoke little to no English and we're incredibly rude. We wold respond to the emails and still get more and more threstening emails. We were very concerned that any of it was legit. Kayak wanted nothing to do with it past advertising one price only to support a group that charged more. Such a scam. We had problems with the boarding passes printed. The first flight the staff was prevented from printing our tickets. They never told us why. Then for the second flight they called us to the boarding counter and required our tickets be reprinted. It was a bit of a hassle, but not earth shattering."
Pros: "Brand new planes, free tv and movies, and very comfortable seats. the flight crew was very friendly and takeoff and landing were right on time. Overall we were very impressed and would definitely fly Aeromexico again!!"
Pros: "Flight on time and professional crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2hrs."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Check in on line was diffucult and did not include opportunity to precheck a check in bag. Acwaste of time fir everyine in line"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Great flight. The only uncertainty with this level of tickets, is not knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. In general, it is worth what you pay for."
Cons: "Knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. They can save the food!!! It's owfull."
Cons: "To have us sit together"
Pros: "The plain got to Mexico before time I was traveling premier so the seats were confortable."
Cons: "Normally the crew is really nice .I found this One less attempt . The suitcase didn’t came our first like every time I fly business"
Cons: "Seats had even less legroom than the worst US airlines. I'm and 5'8" and I could barely fit my knees and once the person in front of me decided to recline his seat I couldn't even do that."
Cons: "Entertainment or WiFi being available"
Pros: "Nothing. Iberia Airlines employs theives."
Pros: "I had not used Aeromexico before and what a great experience it was! All the staff and crew were very helpful and courteous. The seats were comfortable with more leg room than other airlines in economy class. I will certainly use again and tell my friends about it."
Cons: "Excellent service throughout!"
Cons: "Two one way tickets were purchased to Cancun. The layover was 2 hours... but since the first carrier was late, it caused us to miss our connecting flight. Because the 2 tickets were from different carriers, the airline charged us $1600 to buy new tickets. I would never buy tickets this way again."
Pros: "Perfect timing, pilots throttled up to catch up on a delayed departure, absolutely bang on. Cabin crew were great. Comfortable seats with recline."
Cons: "Inside could do with a clean, but it was an older 737 workhorse, typical wear & tear. I paid more than expected but I did get a good reliable service."
Cons: "El vuelo salió atrasado . Teníamos acientos en AM+. Incómodos El sistema de entretenimiento no funcionó. Pedimos que lo vean para arreglarlo. Nadie nos acercó con respuesta. Mal trato del personal a bordo"
Cons: "The plane is in terrible shape"
Cons: "Your customer service center is useless. The representatives do not help, they are mean and patientless."
Pros: "There was great service at the desk when I needed to have my flight rescheduled. Friendly staff in flight as well."
Cons: "Having less than an hour to deplane, go through immigration, them security just isn't enough time between flights. I missed my plane as Guadalajara immigration took almost 2 hours at 5:45am. I then had to add another flight to my itinerary. Planes are somewhat old."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of snacks, prefer chips"
Pros: "Choice of beverages was good, flight attendants impeccable."
Cons: "I was in Classe Premier. My seat was extremely hard to recline and my let rest wouldn’t extend. Very uncomfortable 2 and a half hours."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."
Pros: "Quick flight, ease going through customs"
Pros: "I didn't have a seat and was upgraded to first class, which was AMAZING."
Cons: "Horrible customer service and delayed all our plans"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Cons: "A horrible flight!!! We arrived at 5:04pm then we sat on the tamarac for 40 minutes before they could find a gate for us!!!! What a horrible lack of management!’ Who runs this airport/airline!? At the end they moved us to completly different terminal!!! Had to find a new transportation to the hotel!!! Again, what a horrible display of management skills!!"
Pros: "We made it"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours. The flight was cold and miserable and today I’m sick."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Surprise first class!"
Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Aeromexico was unable to provide the boarding pass for our second flight on the itinerary (operated by Delta) when we checked in in Mexico City (our checked bags were tagged all the way to Minneapolis though). They informed us that we would need to go to the Delta ticket counter when we arrived in Cancun (with a short layover). This is an unacceptable level of service."
Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Cons: "I had to document my luggage in every airport"
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours before my flight to fly domestically. Waited 1.5 hours in line. Everyone who worked there didn't give a damn about anyone's situation. This isn't the first time the experience was miserable. I recommend viva or volaris. This airline can't get it together."
Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"
Pros: "Nice plane"

Pros: "Good legroom. Staff, food, boarding. Landed ahead of expected time."
Cons: "The temperature varied rather; hot on the ground cold over the arctic. One toilet door was faulty. The entertainment system occasionally played up."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing."
Cons: "The seats, my Gawd...felt like I was sitting on marbles. And this priority board issue. Why say you have priority boarding and be the third zone???"
Pros: "attendants heard your grievances."
Cons: "i got there around 5am for a 7am flight. it took those 2 hours to check me in. and then ran to the plane so i would not miss it."
Pros: "See above, ditto."

Cons: "Very small serving of drinks, not a lot of entertainment on offer."
Pros: "Everything it was painless"
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: "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: "All good"
Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."

When we eventually changed planes and moved to another gate to board it all went without a hitch."
Pros: "No lines."
Cons: "Impossibly poor online servicing, most unsympathetic, unhelpful and ignorant check-in, sales personnel w manager to match. If you take a hard-line to sympathetic, injured, elite member that s my 91-years-old father. And fail to provide most basic information of local scheduled flights you might just leave oneworld and let up-to-task risen stars add to the alliance (instead of abusing her standing as BA does. Shame on you."

Cons: "Crew behaving like prison guards. Not helpful and friendly, a disgrace. Food catering a joke (peanuts and crips)"

Pros: "Never travelled in wtp before (normally club) and was very pleasantly suprised"
Cons: "The crew had some friends on board and spent a lot of time speaking with them. It shouldn't have been so obvious to other passengers..."
Pros: "Aircraft clean, average service, crew kept us informed, nice to have a drink included"
Cons: "Rubbish low cost concept, pay exorbitant prices for everything - seating, baggage on top of an already expensive fare. Stay well clear of a hand baggage only fare!"
Cons: "The boarding had no respect for priority boarding. Dreadful experience. However the worse element of this flight was the poor way the crew (pilot especially) handled a so called security incident. The pilot named and shamed a passenger - whom he forced to walk to the front of the plane after an hour sitting waiting to depart. The pilot treated this man terribly. He stated repeatedly that the security concern was due to this specific passenger - who, as it turns out was completely innocent - and to close the matter the pilot announced it was a simple case of mistaken identity! I have never been more shocked or concerned by the growing incidents of islamaphonia such as this... Yes the passenger who was picked on by the pilot was a Muslim... But there was NO EXCUSE for the way the crew of this plane behaved."

Pros: "The entertainment system was excellent! Tons of movies and shows and most of them recent!"
Cons: "Food... it's airplane food - I guess what can you expect. The plane was RIDICULOUSLY HOT. So HOT that it was impossible to sleep. I saw dozens of blankets on the floor - no one was using them. PLEASE make it colder.... at least a little. You can always put on another blanket, but there's only so much you can take off."
Pros: "speeding boarding, uncrowded terminal"
Cons: "config on BA is really cramped, crowded flight led to below average service, TV screen is microscopic"
Pros: "Nice new airplane, 777. The crew was very attentive and nice. Very good flight overall."
Cons: "Seats are a little cramped and not very comfortable,"
Cons: "Connecting in London was too slow. Had to go thru at least 3 checks that seemed redundant & confusing. Lines were too long. If the procedures were indeed needed, they have to staffed them with adequate number of personnel."
Pros: "See previous comments."
Pros: "It is the first time that I fly with British Airways and I am very happy-the flight was on time, the service was very good and the food was great!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew wouldn't let me board because a ticket from Spain to France was not sufficient evidence I would leave Europe. So I bought one from Italy to Singapore and they didn't accept that either. I lost over 1,000 dollars."
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and professional"
Cons: "The boarding was crazy. They called group one and met anyone board and the said all other groups. I was In premium economy and wanted my group 2 that I paid extra for. Also you must use their special earphones which they collect 45 minutes prior to landing. It sure I’ll do premium economy again. I don’t se me the benefit"
Cons: "They lost my bag and I still haven't heard from them"
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: "My checked bag did not make it to London, and it’s really affected my short stay which requires a lot of traveling around England."

Pros: "The crew was really nice. They were friendly and genuine."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Check in counter service is the worst I’ve ever experienced. On board, not all menus were available so I ended up eating the leftovers..."
Pros: "Very personable"
Cons: "Delay in Madrid -"
Pros: "Iberia cancelled my incoming flight to Madrid and put me on an earlier one, but refused to let me on the earlier flight to Bilboa, which made a long waiting time!"
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: "Too many people and little space to move"
Pros: "On time, clean airplane, smooth, good flight overall"
Cons: "No entertainment or food on board. Not even drinking water"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about Iberia"
Cons: "I paid extra to book early so I could be assure of a seat with a view and so I could sit with my husband. Iberia charged my credit card 55.00 for the service and then, without my knowledge Iberia changed my seats and denied charging me extra. I have papers to prove my claim and will dispute the charges with my credit card company. The communication between flight attendants and passengers was horrible. Those of us who had not eaten yet (about half the plane in economy seating) watched the flight attendants bring out extra bread to all of the other economy passengers who had already received their meals, while we, who had not eaten yet, watched. My husband inquired if we were also receiving meals. He was told that everyone would eventually receive a meal. Horrible customer service, the worst ever. Later, before landing the pilot cancelled beverage and snack service because of possible weather conditions but never put the seat belt sign on until we began our decent. Nothing made any sense. It was like a crazy person was in charge. I would not trust Iberia to take me anywhere in the future."
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "There was no water in business class toilets. The staff are not polite."
Cons: "When I purchased the ticket I was never told that there was no allowance for luggage. Usually, this flights give you @ least (1) piece of luggage for free. In this case they charged the first piece 50 dollars and the second one $200.00.- After I paid 1500 dollars for (1) plane ticket , it is unheard that there is not even one piece of luggage for free. When I booked the flight there was nothing on the site about this. This was my first and last time buying a tickets from you guys. The fact that the fare was 200 dollars cheaper than other sites, ended up costing, 300 more. Never again with you guys."
Cons: "Layovers are what makes the flight bad."
Cons: "The line to check bags was way too long. No kiosks and only one person working the desk and way too slow."
Pros: "Overhead storage was generous. Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "They charged us for two aisle seats, and then reassigned one of us to a middle seat with no notice. With advance notice, they were unable to provide a meal that would not contain bell peppers, to which I am allergic. On the plane, both meal options contained bell peppers. Surprisingly, the ingredient lists were not available to flight attendants or passengers, and we were only aware of their presence because of seeing them, or having my allergic reaction (which I did) after avoiding the visible ones. The passenger in front of me put his seat in full recline for the entire 10 hour flight, including about 30 minutes when the seat was unoccupied. This put his seat about six inches in front of my chin and made it impossible for me to view the entertainment screen. It also made it difficult to get into and out of my seat. Several of the toilets had clear fluid covering the floor. I did not want to know is this was water or something else. Although our connecting flight in Miami went from gate E21 to gate E30, it took two hours (and 3,000 steps per FitBit) to get there because of being required to claim our luggage, leave security, recheck the bags, and then re-enter security. Our tickets did not provide for TSA-PRE despite having provided our known traveler number in advance. Many notices and directions were only available in Spanish. As they are based in a Spanish speaking country, this is perfectly reasonable, but their services are marketed to English speaking countries and it was a problem for me as a predominantly English-only speaker."
Cons: "Food was poor ( cold, tasteless, meat was hard .....)"
Cons: "Madrid to Tampa... Got the nursery. Lots of crying babies... must be immigrating to the US. Why don't they put all people with babies at the rear so the rest of us can nap? Not IB's fault, the customs at Miami came to a halt for an hour. 2000 people standing in line, missing connections. There was a shift change, most employees didn't show up for work. was told 'It's a special day'. Fortunately I was at the head of the line. A few of us were routed to someone who was surprised to see US citizens. As a consequence, the always slow MIA failed to transfer my luggage. Still waiting for it... Air travel is such a pain these days. I'm sure more would fly if it wasn't such a hassle."

Pros: "goed attention in Iberia A320 600 and very wide"
Cons: "For the first time ever an airline lost my luggage. I fly several times a year and thus was my firat time flying Iberia. What a headache and inconvenience."
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: "The dinner that was served wasn't terrible"
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane. The movie choices were mediocre. Could have used a little bit more leg room."
Pros: "The crew was great, we were on time and the food was airplane great"
Cons: "There was 0 legroom. My legs (and I'm 5'10") were literally bulging into the seat in front of me the entire time. I looked around and saw many other people with similar issues holding their legs sideways, etc. Ughh"
Pros: "The crew was not the worst crew."
Cons: "Apart from the small, uncomfortable seats, the food was very gross, inedible if you're not starving, and I've been fortunate to travel a lot and I've never ever been on a flight that announces towards the end of travel to reread emergency cards, and that if evacuation is needed, to not grab your stuff (wtf?!). incredibly not comforting considering the plane was super shakey during the flight."
Cons: "They did not even serve water for a 4-hour flight. We did not know that this was a flight that you had to pay for everything."
Cons: "Poor film and tv selection, the majority from Fox. That's very limiting. Ear buds very bad quality w sound inly comeing through one bud."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "I think they should offer complementary water"
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Pros: "Overall everything was fine. AA airport crew in St. Louis was amazing helping me with a mistake in communication"
Cons: "My flight itinerary was changed I received no notification of this change. Lost my flight. AA airport crew saved the day"
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."
