Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "The crew handled 2 incidents exceedingly diplomatically with an impossible man seated next to me. The incidents had nothing to do with me. At the beginning of the flight he was refusing to close 4 window shades that were bothering someone on the other side of the plane, and at the end of the flight he refused to return his headsets as we were landing. The crew were amazingly polite with him. He was completely out of line."

Pros: "The plane was better then the usual"

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by quality of what i would call "domestic" flight..."
Cons: "I think Turkish airline need to bring a bit more organization in boarding (it felt like original Southwest boarding process -- first come/first served or get in queue and hurry up wait (depending on one's point of view)..."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"

Pros: "food was amazing"

Cons: "EVerything about this airline."

Pros: "Always love THY's customer service!"

Pros: "The flight crew on my side was great!"
Cons: "There was one stewardist not on my row but on another row that I witnessed getting very frustrated and was rude with a few customers. It was uncomfortable to watch her be that way. I'm glad it wasn't me but I feel bad for her and the others."

Pros: "Loved the service, comfort, entertainment, etc. All of this was top notch and the 13 hour flight went by very quickly."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare. I blame my country more than the airline for the new security procedures needed but I literally went through 4 security checkpoints to get on the plane. Not only that, I had to give up my iPad and my $4000 camera to checked luggage at the gate (not my luggage but theirs). Again...not the airlines fault but it was an absolute cluster F...."

Cons: "I didn't hear the boarding call in English."

Pros: "Thanks for the homemade cookies :)"

Pros: "Courteous service, good food and fine entertainment options."
Cons: "The USB charging port wasn't working."

Cons: "Plane was old. Seat pitch too tight."

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."

Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Pros: "I know it has been some time for me to fly but I once did often I think your entertainment way and options were the best I have ever had the privalage to be on, It was great to fly with you."

Pros: "Several check points were not very pleasent , but necesarry."

Pros: "Helpful crew. Screens for entertainment and information at each seat."
Cons: "Both meals were penne pasta, as was the previous flight's. Should be more varied."

Pros: "I loved the comfy space of my seat, the amazing service crew and the good meals served. Highly recommend and looking forward to fly with them again."

Pros: "I wouldn’t know t"
Cons: "To let me on the flight"

Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."

Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."

Cons: "Leg room was lacking."

Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."

Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."

Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."

Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"

Pros: "Great services ce."

Pros: "The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old."
Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."

Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"

Pros: "Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas."
Cons: "ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US."

Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."

Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."

Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."

Pros: "Love the new in-cabin wi-fi, USB charging station, and menu of in-flight entertainment and resources on the individual flatscreens."

Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"

Pros: "I booked via Kayak using Virgin Atlantic shared out to Delta. Check was confusing as both airlines used different flight numbers. When I went to check in with Virgin Atlantic they told me to go to Delta. When I went to Delta they told me to go back to Virgin Atlantic. I wound up checking in with Virgin Atlantic. Everyone was very polite but check in was confusing. Everything else was wonderful. Cutomer service was great from beginning to end."
Cons: "Check in."

Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."

Cons: "Extremely long queue"

Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"

Cons: "N/an/a"

Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."

Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."

Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."

Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."

Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."

Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."

Cons: "It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You"

Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "It was actually a flight from new Orleans to Detroit. Seats were assigned at the gate for myself and many others. It seemed like the gate agent didn't care where she assigned guests who were travelling together as several people were not able to sit with their travel companion. Once I was on the plane I however switched with someone to allow them to sit next to their companion and put me closers to mine. Everything else went smoothly."

Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."

Cons: "The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?"

Cons: "Not to have 2 distressed cats on board meowing non stop for 10 hours."

Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some problems and seats seemed a bit uncomfortable"

Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."

Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"

Pros: "Well trained, professional, highly efficient flight attendant, and what is more important, in good mood during the whole the flight"
Cons: "The mobile application Air France didn't know the city or airport Dubai. Often same thing happens on the android application work Sheremetievo airport in Moscow"

Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."

Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"

Pros: "Great crew and prompt boarding."
Cons: "Airline food and close main cabin seating. Should offer upgraded meals, just like the extra seating space."

Pros: "Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We were in business class which was modest but comfortable."
Cons: "Ground crew in Paris failed to put our luggage on plane to Amsterdam. Also, plane was delayed about 40 minutes because of Amsterdam air traffic. Captain was very apologetic to the passengers."

Pros: "On time, no hassle."

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The snacks that were handed out prior to landing were not very good and it looked as though a lot of people in our section felt the same way. Also, there were a lot of empty seats in the comfort and premium sections, but non of our gold medallions were offered an upgrade."

Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Everything! It was a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"

Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible delay. I got letd to my next flyight. The airline stuff didn’t assist me at all and didn’t wanted to help me getting to my next flight. Horrible"

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."

Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1h30min, so we arrived very late"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled flight—absolutely no notification. Convoluted rebooking in whcuhbhey lies to us about what flights we were actually on. Spent a couple hours at Delta rebooking our trip. Lost prepaid night at hotel and dinner eaecatuon plus day of vacation."

Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"

Cons: "Horrible Crew..."

Pros: "The space and the people"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."

Pros: "Smoothness of flight and service"
Cons: "In a french airline, chinese-cuisine meal was more attractive than western. Unbelievable! Entertainment: films were either too old, or too uninteresting"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."

Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"

Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."

Pros: "General air of professionalism is reassuring"
Cons: "Food, crew appear rushed"

Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "Premium economy seats do not recline, only slouch. One of our 2 seats wouldn't slouch more than half way. The entertainment options are extremely sparse and the screens are 4:3 ratio, tiny, and of such poor quality that they look like laptop monitors from 1999."

Pros: "full Meal service in coach , customer service , free wine , personal entertainment, power outlets , everything !"
Cons: "Bottom seat cushions could be a little more comfortable ."

Pros: "Being able to have my meal at the airport before my flight so that I could sleep in comfort."

Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."

Pros: "Airplane staff were good"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."

Pros: "Seat room was better on most economy flights. The food was good and the glass of champagne did not hurt at all. The aircraft flew very smoothly from takeoff to landing."

Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."

Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."

Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"

Pros: "I like service of AF"

Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"

Cons: "Late...delayed from algiers"

Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."

Pros: "This plane was the nicest plane I had ever been on. Very comfortable and the entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Airplane food is airplane food I guess."

Pros: "Entertainment center is brand new and Cleanliness Crew was ok And yeah there's wine (that way you can get plastered and ignore the uncomfortable seats)"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. They're charging for literally EVERYTHING now. On economy class you have many options: - Normal (free!) "ergonomic" seats: uncomfortable, narrow, really close to the one in front of you. - Normal (exit row): just give up. There's like 6 of these and they're taken immediately. - Normal (middle of the plane): are you kidding me? These are NORMAL seats and you charge an extra €30? - Normal (2 seats per row!): what a bargain. Same crappy seats, but two people instead of three! This is really worth my money. - Upgrade to business! Why are you so poor! AF food went from being the best in international flights to disgusting microwave food (especially vegetarian)."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Flight attendants are always very friendly and attentive on Air France flights."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices always leave much to be desired."

Pros: "Smooth ight"
Cons: "Need to add cabin service"

Cons: "A slight delay that they could have been quicker to alert us of"

Pros: "Entertainment Screen in the seat back in front of me"

Cons: "boarding, seating, entertainment"

Cons: "I had my period and desperately needed to use the bathroom. We were told to stay in our seats The entire flight even though there wasn’t much turbulence. The flight attendant yelled at me over the intercom to return to my seat when I tried to get up so I ended up bleeding through my tampon."

Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"

Cons: "I was in the air 24hr, the trip was as good as it gets."

Pros: "Liked the flight. Very nice crew."

Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."

Pros: "Why does a plane run out of Food and wine?"

Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."

Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."

Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."

Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Do you think airline management sits around boardrooms to brainstorm ways to torture its passengers more? The seats and the leg room are ridiculous. It's gotten to much worse recently."

Pros: "Older smaller plane, no wifi"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."

Pros: "expected rough ride due to weather, but flight was very smooth. Pilot was great, and made good time!"
Cons: "a bit of a delay to weather, but that is understandable"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the plane​approximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."

Pros: "We made it home."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat didn't work. Seat 19D on flight 2580 from MSY to LAX."

Pros: "Plane clean"
Cons: "Seat assignment process totally sucks. Wasn't possible to sit with partner even though we checked in day before. Line management at gat abysmal"

Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."

Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"

Pros: "Comfy"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1hr and 20 minutes since tower mix up and plane was bigger so confusion on seating. I feel stressed cause I will be missing a full day of work because of this delay and pretty pissed off. Would like some sort of compensation"

Pros: "Great seats."
Cons: "Customer service both over the phone and in person not very helpful to ensure connecting flights were made. Much better experience with Southwest in regards to coordinating delayed flights. AA could have done a much better job to ensure more flyers made thei connecting flights."

Pros: "the crew was nice and helpful, the seat had a lot of room"
Cons: "The plane seemed old and didn't have the features I expect in first class"

Pros: "Left on time arrived on time"
Cons: "Air conditioning didn't work on Charlotte to ft wayne leg."

Pros: "Everything was on time. American sometimes has free movies you can watch"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"

Pros: "Awful food selection, small entertainment selection, none of the crew knew how to properly board the plane and left guests waiting in the aisle for over 45 minutes of standing for no reason and then yelled at the passengers that we were 'late' and that the standing passengers were causing the delay of the aircraft! The staff were VERY, VERY rude. I would do yourself a favor and NEVER fly Iberia!"
Cons: "Everything. They need an entirely new flight crew, new food service, new gate attendants, new baggage check, new ground crew. Just a joke."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Late and bad communication"

Cons: "no air circulation during taxiing"

Cons: "The suitcase did not zrrive"

Cons: "crew seemed a tad sour. came around with morning tea but without proper cups. attendant seemed annoyed when my neighbor asked for a paper cup in lieu of the plastic juice cup he already had. not a big deal but kinda weird"

Pros: "The crew in my area were very helpful. The young guy next to me passed on the dinner choices. The crew member came back and asked if he would like some pretzels, etc. which I thought was very nice. They were very friendly."
Cons: "Just a suggestion that the ear jacks for the entertainment be passed out earlier. Luckily I brought my own but my neighbors on both sides had a long wait until they were passed out."

Pros: "Flying these days is as bad as it gets. We made it, that is what I liked."
Cons: "Had bought a ticket that allowed me to check in a suitcase and to chose my seat. The choosing part does not happen as Iberia chooses for you the day before the flight and tells you you can change what they chose but for a price. Seems deceiving. Flight attendant on flight was rude to me and others."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free wifi for economy class"

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: "What I liked was smooth flight. And the fleece blanket."
Cons: "Crew was not even visible in all that time. No water offered, no concern for passenger comfort. Food was skimpy and packaged, no clues what we were eating. Seats were tiniest and least comfortable ever! Difficult to get up from and get out from window seat."

Pros: "Punctual, efficient."
Cons: "The food could be better."

Pros: "The crew was excellent.My only complaint was as we were sitting in row 54 the crew made too much noise during sleeping time.Other than that they were very helpful and very nice.It was our first time flying Iberia.It was very enjoyable.I will be happy to recommend bthem."

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Pros: "That's the only good thing."
Cons: "Mediocre food, flight attendants were cold and unhelpful. I never heard of 90% of the entertainment offered, and the rest were really old. Bring your own entertainment, and a charging cable. In fact, bring everything you think you will need, water, food, Tylenol for the headache you will definitely have by the end of his flight. No one has any interest in being helpful or making your flight Pleasant."

Pros: "Crew arranged to change seats so my left leg had an aisle."
Cons: "Boarding by groups was not followed, no one to control them, just a rush to gate. No discipline by Iberia. Reserved a seat on aisle of 3 seats side section so my left leg could stretch out after surgery but they changed aircraft type w/ only 2 seats on side without notification, so my right leg had the aisle."

Cons: "I can’t rate it is it left without us"

Pros: "Once I understood how it worked it was a breeze"
Cons: "Made more than four different lines before 1 understanding Iberia worker helped us out. Was told that that wasn’t the correct line and sent to another. The next place the same for more than 3 times. Then finally, Raquel, LISTENED, and away we went."

Pros: "Very little - other than getting off"
Cons: "Every detail from rude checking all the way through rudness"

Cons: "The food was bad."

Cons: "The seat very tight"

Pros: "Todo"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "More spacious than the flight to Madrid. Good was fresher good entertainment system."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard."

Pros: "I loved being offered newspapers before takeoff. in-flight entertainment had a good selection, food was good, and there was a decent amount of space on this flight because it was relatively empty."

Pros: "Hospitality, patience, and efficiency. Everything was clean, the food was warm and tasty. the employees were kind and polite all the time. The technology functioned flawlessly. The standard seats were a bit tight but manageable."
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "My USB connector didn’t work"

Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work and crew wasn't concerned and didn't do anything about it."

Cons: "There were delays at Heathrow due to fog. Rather then backing up all planes by an hour or so, BA gave our plane away. We experienced a 6 plus hour delay. So after flying for nine hours from the U.S. overnight to London, we had to sit around the airport, while watching other planes take off on time. We got in so late to Madrid that our hotel room that we reserved months earlier was given away. After being awake for over 24 hours we had to walk around Madrid at 11:00 pm at night, looking for someplace to lay our weary heads."

Pros: "After explaining to the woman that I would like yogurt or something in the box one of the attendants offered me her food and warmed it up"
Cons: "The fact one attendant didn’t empathize that I was unable to order my food and didn’t try to help me eat something and basically said too bad, I’m sorry.a pleasant surprise being"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "Loved the service and the plane"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable."

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: "Great and on time"
Cons: "Nothing all good"

Cons: "Had seat assignments, but the assignments were not honored at the airport, even though had paid external for early seat assignment."

Cons: "Very hard to get any information about connective flights. I had 1 hour between the flights and I asked the assistant at the passport control to help me to get through, she said that everyone needs to stay in the same line. I pushed myself through, which I never do, and run all the way to the gate, and hardly made my flight. It is very hard to get any information because most employees don't speak English. I will never fly with Iberia again. I would rather pay more and fly with another company. I was very upset about my flying experience."

Pros: "Absolutely on time!"
Cons: "The boarding was slow"

Pros: "Very limited - no vegetarian option. Was not enough quantity. No snacks in between"

Cons: "The crew is so rough, never smiling, and speaking very poor English. Well, it was Iberia, and they are famous for that. When the Spanish company will address the fact that customer service should be their top priority is still to be seen."

Cons: "Could not board the plane as it was overbooked!!!!!"

Pros: "The very friendly and competent attendant. He deserves 5 stars, working alone in cramped conditions."
Cons: "Narrowness of aisle and seats. Minimal legroom and an average person had to bend to get in and out of seats."

Pros: "Everything abou the airline. The boarding was quick, the flight crew were wonderful, the flight was clean and smooth."
Cons: "Passengers moved their seats all the way back without considering people behind them. Very small leg room."

Pros: "a non event flight - meal was ok, flight attendants helpful"
Cons: "airport in london - waited for hours to find which gate to used - sent us across to the wrong side and then only 40 minutest to board and we were running to take underground rail back to other side and find correct gate."

Pros: "Good food and they have cute kids travel bags to my kids"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of service"

Cons: "Despite seeing a crew bring 3 pieces of luggage to the plane, since the cargo was closed they turned around and 1 of those was my luggage which arrived a day later. The flight was late departing and then required to circle the airport and then the luggage did not make it."

Cons: "No complimentary drinks, not even a glass of water. Check in was horrendous. I pre purchased luggage Check in but when I arrived in airport the automated system doesn't like to that piece of data. Didn't know that so was in a long line to use automated check in when I was supposed to be in an even longer line to have service personnel check me in. So finally after standing in both lines I did get checked in......."

Cons: "Lost luggage, hot plane, charged for water"

Pros: "Everything flowed very smoothly desite the fact I had an irregularly shaped carry on. It was no problem, Staff were positive and acomodating and that lead to passengers being accommodating to each other. The intertainment was great, the only draws back is that I slept most of the time and wanted to watch another movie."
Cons: "That I had to bother the person sitting next to me to get up when I wanted to go tot the bathroom, but he was very accommodating"

Pros: "Iberia"
Cons: "No help from kayak vayama to get additional baggage, seats"
