Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Please make an announcement to passengers to not be dismissive if their surroundings. Passenger in front of me was has no regard for people behind him. Kept throwing himself in seat aggressively which cause water/food on trail to fall over. Thanks"
Pros: "Wonderful on board service from the crew"
Pros: "It was a lovely easy flight, always lovely flying star alliance."
Cons: "Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better"
Cons: "Boarding time needs to be longer. Also, too little time between connecting flights."
Cons: "Swiss precision"
Pros: "Really good flight. Clean,on time, efficient. Early arrival even"
Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."

Cons: "smooth & efficient friendly crew"
Cons: "They checked at the gate all our hand luggages to make sure we didnt exceed the 8 kilo mark. This is very cheap and only suitable for the low cost airlines. I expect swiss air as a higher class flight to turn a blind eye on this matter"
Pros: "fast boarding, great crew."
Cons: "when is SWISS going to change serving something else rather than this chocolate bread during morning flights?"
Cons: "Should be clear whether meals contain nuts."

Cons: "The handle of the pull-stick that slides into the suitcase was broken off with the pull-stick sticking out of the TUMI suitcase. Used a pen point to release it and get it back into the suitcase. No handle so it was impossible to drag the suitcase. The ground personnel representing Swiss Air at the Boston Baggage carousel was a novice, had never filled out a baggage claim form before. Told me they would phone me. I am a bit skeptical about this claim. Not sure if it was Swiss Air of the local ground personnel who damaged the suitcase."
Cons: "Good overall"
Pros: "No delays at all. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Screaming babies."
Cons: "No room and very hard to get t your seat"
Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"
Pros: "quality of plane"
Cons: "check in takes 30 minutes since my visa was in old passport"
Cons: "Boarding from bus and no aero bridge"
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"
Cons: "Perdieron las maletas"
Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"
Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Both flights late. Food was worthy rather than tasty. Seats small. Too much plastic - why not use non plastic cups. Sexist safety card."
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"
Pros: "Lufthansa hands down is the best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."
Cons: "Boarding by rows would avoid people rushing to line up ahead of time."

Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."

Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."

Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding"
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"
Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."
Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"
Cons: "The plane was small. It was a quick flight though."
Cons: "Only serving beef as meal in economy was not great. A choice would be better."

Cons: "Upon landing in EWR on United, per my reservation on this site my connection was on SAS to Copenhagen. Upon arrival in EWR, I received an email from this site saying my SAS flight "may be canceled". I immediately headed to the terminal where SAS was and went into the lounge to speak to an agent. The women I spoke to could not have been more rude. She told me my flight was canceled and that she did not have access to any details because that was United's responsibility. I told her that could not be the case because my flight was on SAS so if they canceled the flight, I would like to understand what my options are given that I had a tight window upon arrival into my final destination into Dubrovnik so I could not be too late in landing outside of my original reservation. She told me that I had to talk to United and did not even acknowledge why there was a cancellation or anything other than the SAS flight I was on was cancelled. She barely even helped me to understand where my luggage was which I was very concerned would be lost given the issue with the flight cancellation. As a result of all of this, it turns out I was put onto a United flight that now had MORE connections. I had to now go to Frankfurt to Vienna to Dubrovnik, all with really tight connections AND now I no longer was on the same flight as my friend who I was traveling with. SAS did not help with any of this or care to assist in ANY way. They told me it was out of their hands and I had to talk to United. AWFUL service when SAS had cancelled the flight! I had no choice but to take the re-routed flights. I ended up running to my gates and barely catching all of my connections which made for a very stressful travel experience to start my long awaited vacation. After paying the high cost I did for my flight, I am extremely frustrated with my experience as I ended up having more connections, tight connections, awful customer service and a really stressful trip. This is NOT would I would expect for how much I paid and out of the quality of an airline. I would like to receive some type of compensation for the extreme inconvenience of landing 3+ hours after my original arrival time, being broken up with my friend who I was traveling with, not being given any options for my travel, terrible customer service assistance, and no acknowledgement from SAS to help me in any way."
Pros: "Great selection of movies."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for take off for some 40 minutes."
Pros: "boarding was on time, crew were polite, food was great, and the extra cup of tea was really hot"
Cons: "If you want to have a different meal than what they offer, you have to contact customer service before hand. I never been on a flight so far, where there wasn’t a vegetarian option. So I was pretty surprised when they just offered beef fajitas. I asked for a vegetarian option only to find out there isn’t none. The flight attendant wasn’t super nice about it either, she just said you have to order it online. But at no point I got an email saying, if you want something different than what we offer, tell us! So that was pretty annoying..."
Cons: "Handling of delay: - Massive delays and time wasted with individual case handling at the transfer centre in CPH when a more efficient group/bulk handling of passengers on the same flight with similar cases would make more sense. Handling of baggage during the delay. Un-necessary additional delays with baggage handling due to poor management."
Pros: "Very helpful staff."
Cons: "The flight from EWR to Oslo was delayed by over 2 hours which meant I would miss my next connection... and I understand that happens sometimes. But, it was after hours on the airline number phone number and the fly.com customer service could not help with finding an alternate connection from Oslo to FRA. It was frustrating to then have to wait at Oslo airport for another 4 hours before the new connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Cons: "Nothing :)"
Pros: "Excellent from boarding to departing the aircraft, very polite staff and comfortable flight! Thank you"
Pros: "premium economy"
Cons: "nothing, it was great!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight from Newark to Copenhagen was on new aircraft A340-300 I believe, it was very nice and comfortable even in coach as long as you have a compact body."
Cons: "That my Silver Star Alliance status got me nothing with SAS, no early boarding, no ability to select a seat until 24 hours before without paying an extra cost, if you wanted a beer you had to pay, this is a no frills airline now, pay as you go."
Pros: "Great flight, on time great crew."
Pros: "easy board, timely departure & nice tea :)"
Cons: "seats were small and a bit dirty"

Cons: "Faster arrival"
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Stockholm was late, so I was late for the flight to Vilnius,had to recheck-in and wait for 6 hours."
Cons: "I understood I could check one bag. Nope. Checking one bag cost me $67. So much for saving money."
Pros: "The free, in-flight movies, the in-fight dinner, and the friendly, multi-lingual staff were GREAT commodities."
Cons: "I was in economy/SAS Go class, so it was nearly impossible to get more than one or two hours of sleep on a long flight, (i.e. about eight hours). Maybe they should reserve the seats with extra leg room for those who actually need it, and have the seats recline even further."
Pros: "Fish was excellent, flight attendant gave me free wifi after after I had an issue to pay w my card, I was let through express security in copenhagen, US border protection was fast and easy."
Cons: "I didn't get a window seat and it was a little bit tight."
Cons: "So many delays and lost luggage. The craziest was leaving Manchester. I was supposed to have 30 minutes after leaving security at Manchester and would have done if they hadn't decided to board early. That's ok but then we sat on the plane waiting which resulted in leaving later than the original time of departure and therefore a large run for my connection at Copenhagen. Was badly organized clearly."
Cons: "Baggager fees were high"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The flight is very noise they never turn off the lights and close the windows so it's very hard to try to sleep."
Pros: "The plane was new, great seats and staff"
Cons: "Delayed flights, microphone is too fuzzy, hard to understand. Also why couldn't we get 2 or more sodas.. Crazy! The Asian airlines beat you! Very expensive stuff like a small red bottle of wine was like almost $15! Nuts... Very disappointed.. It should be free for the money we pay! Also staff just let people leave their windows open which was crazy coz most passengers are tired from other trips and of course in Europe you can hardly see anyone letting the elderly and children have any first priority boarding or let alone line up. I had my disabled husband and a young active little grandchild... Cathay Pacific, PAL,KAL, CAL are great about priority boarding for the elderly and children. Its sad your company do not have compassion or empathy for families with little children and the elderly population.. They really suffer!"
Pros: "One of the best we've experienced--very comfortable very spacious seats , The crew is very attentive and accommodating. We were fed three times and was offered beverages frequently."
Cons: "The food options need improvements. The portion and items are not tasty or plentiful."
Cons: "Crew service is very poor"
Cons: "That I didn't make it to Chicago the day I planned. My first leg had computer issues in Rome which pushed the flight back 4 hours which then made me miss my connecting flight. Had to stay a night in Copenhagen and fly out at 1540 the next day."
Cons: "Because the airport was under construction, the area to wait to board was very barren and without bathrooms. We had to take a very crowded bus to the airplane."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Packed flight. No food available ( even for purchase) in economy"
Pros: "I requested a gluten free meal and was happy with it."
Cons: "leg room was a bit tight"
Cons: "We were delayed before boarding, then delayed again upon landing. Hence, we missed our connection and had to fly to Copenhagen and not arrive in Helsinki until after midnight."
Cons: "Norwegian gives you nothing on international flights. We got no meal, no blanket, no pillow, and no leg room. The flight attendants never came by to give out drinks, or even to take trash. We could not even get a glass of water. They were not concerned at all with whether we had a pleasant flight."
Pros: "I made it to where i wanted to be, Seats were comfortable, there were movies and TV."
Cons: "The person behind me kept hitting the screen on my seat which caused my seat to move, nothing your company can do about that. Any thing else I did not like was outside SAS's control."
Pros: "Everything was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing except the rude passagers. But that is out of the hands of the airline.."
Cons: "The outward flight was rerouted to a different airport, and the return flight was delayed by more than an hour. Not even a glass of water free of charge."
Pros: "Flashy new seats."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "We finally got there."
Cons: "Make water available at Heathrow 5 (2drinking fountains for thousands) and no water or any drink on the plane."

Pros: "The safety video was a great. All was on time."

Cons: "Airline did not honor Ticket, Gave incorrect information as the excuse and have not refunded me for ticket they did not allow me to fly on. they made us purchase new tickets and we were charged 2 times"
Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."
Pros: "- The flight itself was adequate in all aspect for a short haul flight"
Cons: "- The security process ahead of boarding is poorly organized, staffed with some rude and unprofessional agents and with inconsistent requirement in between different passengers"
Cons: "You had cargo on the plane we were supposed to board that leaked and contaminated the plane's controls. 2 hour delay. The replacement plane was beat up, old, and quite shaky."
Cons: "Due to US State Dept travel alert for US Citizen to Europe until Sept 1, I had to postpone the flight. Delta waived the $300 cancelation fee due to the terrorism alert to rebook two other ticket I had purchased. BA said they would but I can not receive confirmation of this until I rebook in the fall. Dr. David Miller Dmiller@Illinois.edu"
Pros: "Finally an airline whose pilot keeps passengers informed of reasons for delays with frequent updates."
Cons: "You are now charging for water? Really?"
Pros: "Pilot pulled off the runway as he thought there was a problem. Determined there was no problem having kept us in an overheated plane for over90 minutes"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Standard BA dependability. Like a dependable but stodgy old uncle."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process. No enforcement of boarding groups"

Pros: "We made it to our destination."
Cons: "The airline misplaced our stroller and one of our cases. We felt abandoned."

Cons: "The arrangements by Kayak did not allow me to make my connections on time. I missed the connection from Heathrow to Manchester. And only made the connection from Manchester to Heathrow because I was escorted in a wheelchair."
Cons: "Very slow operations at the Heathrow airport."
Cons: "Lost all our luggage"
Cons: "Landing was rough. Very rough."
Cons: "Our British Airways flights were cancelled going & returning on the trip. This resulted in rebooking in both directions, at different points in the trip. The cancellation on the return trip was extremely inconvenient since we didn't have a phone to contact BA. After wondering the airport on the day of our departure, for a BA representative that could help, we were directed to a ticket sales office. Then after waiting for another one (1) hour in a line, the BA representative rebooked our return flights. This was not a good way to start or end a trip!"
Pros: "I don't think there is anything more I could ask of an airline."
Cons: "At this point, there was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Heathrow Terminal; Check in easy. Staff knowledgable Security smooth until you reach carry on check. Disorganized area very cramped, 3-4 individuals at a time to place items in trays."
Cons: "Gate not assigned until 1 hour before boarding but this issue would be workable if the assigned gate is A. I am 68 years old the trek to gate C was ludicrous."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It took us over an hour to board. There were 3 lines. 3 attendants. One attendant would leave and we would be left standing there for 20 min. Then they lost my luggage. After 1 day they said they found it in Rome. Each day I would call and they said Rome wasn't sending it. They said they were in India and they couldn't do anything. Finally after 5 days I got it"
Pros: "Was able to move a passenger so that we had an empty seat between us in a row of three."
Cons: "BA check-in system down and could not get a boarding pass. Could not proceed without one and could only get one via a long wait in the "assistance" line. Departed an hour late due to a passenger not getting clearance to leave the country and then for them to remove their luggage."
Cons: "Could not check in advance. At least this was not clear to me from the email notification."
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "The crew was good and the seats were fine."
Cons: "It was a short flight but it would have been nice to have a glass of water."
Pros: "Boarding was seemless and nice"
Cons: "There was a delay which was communicated, inflight entertainment could have been better"
Cons: "Food, all flights—ugh!! Basically bad school lunches."
Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "The crew was kind of slack. They didn't have aqua con gas. The toilets were not kept clean."
Cons: "Missed my transfer in London because the plane took too long to unboard and I was unable to make it to the gates of my next flight in time, despite there being over an hour connection time. The flight came in slightly late and passports were re-inspected upon unboarding which wasted a lot of time, and Heathrow is a nightmare of an airport on a good day, which made it very difficult to get where I needed to go."
Pros: "The facilitie to board"
Cons: "They no have entertainment"
Cons: "Business area crew needs to better service from Bogota to san salvador."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The airline accepted our checked baggage, although they already knew that it would not make it to our final destination (Marrakech) on the same day that we would arrive. We had to pay, out of our own pockets, for the inconvenience. Apparently this happens a lot, and it happened to our entire plane"
Pros: "The crew was really lovely. They handled a socially challenged passenger with a lot more patience than she probably deserved."
Cons: "I know it's probably not legal to throw passengers out of a moving plane, but I think the flight would have been a lot better without that disruptive lady making multiple scenes. I don't understand how people who behave that way are capable of travel in the first place"
Cons: "The space between seats was just microscopic. I’m 6ft tall and I really had a bad time in those 2h30, all twisted and unconfortable."
Cons: "My entertainment console went out right after takeoff. I can’t sleep on a plane, and I waited 5 hours for the attendant to finally reboot it. And one rather surly, overweight attendant with attitude"
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."
Cons: "A cup of water given anywhere else for free was not provided. There was no entertainment. The plane was old and seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."
Pros: "Everything was perfectly...nice crew"
Cons: "The seat very tight"
Cons: "Layovers are what makes the flight bad."
Pros: "Fast efficient boarding."
Cons: "No frills flight. You have to pay for snacks and drinks."
Pros: "Short flight and on time"
Cons: "No WiFi on a 10 hour flight!"
Pros: "Crew did get us on standby; more legroom than trans-Atlantic flight"
Cons: "6 hours too late"
Pros: "Check-in was good, no queues. I arrived about four hours before scheduled departure time and check-in had been open already for an hour. In Mexico City Airport I had missed a flight three days earlier as I'd been observing the departure screens and they'd failed to update the status of my aircraft: this time I was informed of the gate at check-in. Flight was on time and didn't do anything scary. I was lucky as my neighbour found another free seat so left me with more room."
Cons: "I've found Iberia to be uncaring. This flight was much the same. The food and drink service was cheap, and I felt the attendants didn't feel like they had to try to give good service. The new entertainment screens kept coming on, and I kept turning them off as I wished to sleep. Eventually I discovered they were being triggered by the electrostatic charge on the pillows that I was rearranging."
Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Boarding process and pitiful legroom space . Iberia clearly loves showing the privileged few who have paid top dollars to be at the front , that we must be made to wait and struggle to get to our seats .Then, we have to squeeze into a tiny , pitiful space of a seat .....Even Ryanair does better !"
Pros: "Nothing in particular. Very standard."
Cons: "Before boarding, crew member had each of us throw our carry on luggage through a hole in the wall (no, they didn't help), down a chute (yeah, a slide... not a motorized belt or anything), watching our luggage hit the ones below. No one was below to catch them, and we saw them slamming into each other, some falling on the ground. Highly disturbing!"
Pros: "Comfort and crew were good,"
Cons: "Delay in takeoff due to equipment repair"
Cons: "late departure from boston resulted in late arrival in madrid.More than 12 passengers missed the connecting flight to malaga by about ten minutes. iberia could have delayed the flight to malaga and its customers would have had a much better day."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "The seat pitch was so small my knees were hard against the seat in front of me for 1.5 hours and I was miserable the whole time. To put this in perspective this was the most uncomfortable I have ever been on an airplane. My legs hurt the whole flight. This was the first leg of an expensive international flight and given the price of the 2 legs I should have been upgraded to a more comfortable seat. My flight to Europe on Iberia was excellent. However based on this bad experience I plan to avoid Iberia in the future because they treat their high price paying customers poorly. Peter Valorz Valorzp@yahoo.com."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 hours. No apologies. Nothing. Interesting thing: NYC to Madrid, 3 hours late, missed connection, no apologies., nothing One week later: Madrid to NYC: 3 hours late, no apologies, nothing. IBERIA AIRLINES: Never again!"
Pros: "Shortness of flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant would not help get luggage into overhead. Inattentive for food and drink needs."
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: "Transatlantic flight with 1980-s entertainment. Both ways...Thirld world ...I was ashamed the airline was American"
Pros: "Surprisingly, Iberia provided the best experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and American Airlines"
Cons: "Boarding in Barajas was chaotic, boarding group number signs are not visible and gate audio could not be heard"
Pros: "The senior flight attendant was responsive."
Cons: "I paid for 2 tickets and 2 seats. My friend was ill but I didn't cancel her seat. I was not given the paid for aisle seat. I was given the middle seat and a last minute person was given my seat!"
Cons: "There was very little leg room - far less than a standard flight. Granted, I'm tall but be warned if you are flying British Airlines and it really is Iberia"
Pros: "Fast and clean. Smooth ride."
Pros: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Staff was not very accommodating. Plane air-conditioning did not work well and then as very hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Pretty hassle free. Our flight wasn't completely full which helped. International flight so food was served as well as complimentary wine and beer. Would fly with them again."
Pros: "Super quick boarding"
Cons: "Have to pay for water & coffee, etc."
Pros: "Take-off and landing was timely."
Cons: "Really disappointed with a lack of service. On the 8 hour flight we had one meal service within an hour of take-off and one within an hour of landing. No water or checks or anything for almost 6 straight hours, unlike my prior flight. I had to finally get up and ask for water. Very disappointed."
Cons: "No food and no water"
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat from Iberia Airline.The cushion was almost down to spring. Need to upgrade. Crew are not very helpful. Service is not good. Specially at the Airport, speaking English is very bad. I need an assistance to request for PRM ASSISTANCE for wheel chair, I don't believe that he don't speak English at all, Why would he be in that position. It should have bilingual person. I'm sure whether he pretend too I have walk back & forth to get help for information to have it translate to Spanish. All He does is make priority to all local people, it took one hour to get the wheel chair & then by transfer to intl national airport by bus took another hour, we check in @ 8:30AM by the time we get into the terminal was 12:30PM the flight leave 2 12:45PM. What a service. I will never ever flight with Iberia Airline. What a BAD service. Communication by itself is very very bad, the airline crew hardly can speak English. We have 6 people. We will definitely not recommend Iberia Airline. Thank you."
Pros: "Each seat had its own entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "We didn't get our boarding pass for the connection flight which caused a lot of problems when we got to NY. The airline attendant didn't say there was a problem with out itinerary. We found out until we got to NY and we were giving our luggage to Iberia for our connection. The person there said we were in the wrong airport! We had just landed there and our connection was leaving from there too JFK! He said there was nothing he could do and he sent us to the other airline counter to see if they would help us!"
Pros: "Clean, new, A319 airplane. It was comfortable considering it was a short (1 hour) trip"
Cons: "Iberia's flight was late in arriving at the gate in Madrid, and our flight was delayed by 45 minutes (for a one hour flight!). When I arrived at my destination, all the local people (Lekeitio, Bizkaia, Spain) agreed that Iberia is a national disgrace- everyone has had bad experiences flying with them. We have purchased a little apartment in Lekeitio, so we will be traveling frequently, but I will never fly Iberia again."
Pros: "Very good flight. Iberia is top notch. Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Movies and food were both very good."
