Airline reviews

Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Service was okay."
Cons: "Could have been more customer focused!"

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Pros: "Yes very"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Everything was good and nice. Had a good time and felt welcomed. Had a really good experience."

Cons: "Long trip"

Pros: "Customer service and food."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."

Pros: "The seats have great leg room and recline nicely"
Cons: "7kg and only one carry one!?? Budget airlines do better!! Try being a professional with a laptop and a few travel essentials and you won’t get far on Qatar. How crazy. Even if you have diamond one world status (the highest) unless u fly business class there is no chance in getting more onboard for your carryon. Works best airline my a**!"

Cons: "THE SEATS I REQUESTED DURING BOOKING DID NOT TRANSFER OVER TO QATAR AIRWAYS."

Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"
Cons: "Vegetarian food - portion is too little. This has been the third time with Qatar and the food portion are too little."

Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"

Pros: "Qatar airways is the best airlines and they serve you like a 5 stars hotel"
Cons: "The problem is when they linked a flights frome other airlines companies. Under ( one world ) On this flight the were linked with sirlankian airlines The flight was full and a lot of older asian on flight they don’t respect people and speak loudly The smell was not good enough"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Leaving that god forsaken airport after hours of waiting in lines."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Cons: "The customer service is terrible. They refused to accommodate me for a 19 hour layover with a complimentary airport hotel stay, claiming there was an earlier flight--that was still 12 hours away, that I would have to pay to book anyway. Pure scam to get you to pay to upgrade your flight, pay for hotel or be condemned to stay in there airport for a whole day. Never ever again! Don't fly them!"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food quality - lot's of sugar in child meal. Entertainment system slow. We were forced to move the seats into upright position half an hour before landling on a night flight."

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "The fact that our flight was cancelled without being notified. I will never make flight arrangements with them again!!!!!"

Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "Food is palatable. Crew are acommodating"
Cons: "Many of the films have no English subtitle"

Pros: "Very friendly flight staff."

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"

Cons: "4 hs delay"

Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"

Pros: "The entire crew was amazing! Super comfy flight with complete lie-flat club world seats. Arrived into London feeling very refreshed!"

Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."

Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Internet connection."

Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"

Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."

Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."

Cons: "Delayed, twice!"

Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"

Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."

Pros: "Both the crew and the leg room are awesome!"

Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"

Pros: "Boarding the plane was fast and easy, crew was fantastic on and off the plane."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for the tickets to pick our seats in advance."

Cons: "Long wait at the gate upon arrival at Heathrow."

Pros: "Staff were lovely."
Cons: "Old plane with an ancient entertainment system, generally cramped and uncomfortable. Paid for a specific seat but was given a different one."

Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."

Pros: "Great movies that were free!"
Cons: "The structure under the seats were set up super odd, so that my leg space was cut in half by a bar making it difficult to store my bag."

Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"

Pros: "The food, the entertainment and the staff was super friendly"
Cons: "The seats should be more comfortable for such a long flight"

Pros: "Service was excellent, and the 777 flight was very comfortable. The flight attendants were remarkable. The ticket agents had difficulty rebooking the London to Milan leg of my flight when that flight was cancelled while I was on the way to the airport, but they were somehow able to get me onto an earlier flight than was originally offered. What I gathered was that the computer was not very cooperative. The ticket agents were incredibly helpful during this process."
Cons: "I lost my original exit row seat somehow and had to inquire into it. I think what happened was that while the ticket agents were able to rebook my cancelled London to Milan flight, my seat reservation on the Seattle to London leg got lost somehow. I suppose another passenger may have grabbed my seat during that rebooking process. I noticed the changed seat assignment only after I left the ticketing counter. I was able to get a different exit row seat (but with less leg room) assigned to me by inquiring with the agent at the gate."

Pros: "Crew was great, both ground and air. Flight was on time and baggage was delivered efficiently."
Cons: "Could not get a cup of coffee. I can't believe you charge for a cup of plain black coffee. To add insult to injury, my credit cards (plural) were declined and cash was not accepted. I have not had any problem with my cards anywhere else on this trip, so the problem was not mine."

Cons: "I had to watch movies with barely an audible and only one side of my headphones worked. It wasn't the headphones but rather the sound in the arm where the headphones plug in. Made a 10 hour flight even longer."

Pros: "Crew on flight friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Could never find anyone and at check in counter and gates. For this reason will never fly British Airways if possible."

Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."

Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."

Pros: "Flight crew was professional and kind! Food and drinks were free on the airbus. Roomy enough to sleep and got pillow, blanket, and free entertainment!"

Pros: "The crew was really nice overall and the entertainment system was adequate. The main meal was decent too."
Cons: "The flight was late (I was warned online but there was denial at the airport and gate) and further delayed in flight so I missed my connection. I didn't like the pods in business class. I had a forward facing seat at least, which are all by the aisles. They seemed narrow. I didn't sleep (never do). The breakfast was a bit lame. Getting into buses from the plane IS lame. It took a while to get to the terminal."

Pros: "After flying internationally in business class for work a number of times, this was my first international flight in economy. Exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Second leg of flight ran late but no big impact."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"

Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"

Pros: "So nice to be able to lie down fir the long distances. The food was quite good for airplane fare."
Cons: "Where do they get these movies? Surely there are good movies that are a few years old they could offer."

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."

Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight on a 747 Staff looked very smart and were efficient"
Cons: "Check in queue, queue at gate, seat was not clean, food poor The World's favourite airline is becoming impersonal"

Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."

Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."

Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left late, making my connection very tight and my baggage didn't arrive with me. Very inconvenient"

Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."

Pros: "Great in flight entertainment and dinner!"
Cons: "No Wifi; not great for business travel"

Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, entertainment & flight info on monitor."

Pros: "Spacious seating."

Pros: "Got me back to the UK"
Cons: "Lack of storage around seat Lack of privacy Felt like a patient on a trolley Heavy handed portion control Club larder stocked with leftovers Poor quality tableware, that was chipped"

Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "London/Heathrow arrivals had us going to gate A and through all the security and then we found after going through the security check (1 hr) we saw that the gate for Flight to Venice was B gates. We are not young people, but we aren't ignorant of travel. There was a lot of running around on our part with a lot of undue stress, when we didn't have to leave the E gates at all. There were no gate assignments posted when we landed until 30 minutes out while we were running back to E gates. There is no excuse for that, except we didn't know til the last minute where we were supposed to go after asking 2 people. Why the second check for security after the states on connecting flights? Is this new?"

Cons: "First time wearing face mask all the time. It was okay."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "When I arrived to check in at 5:48am for my 6:20am flight, I was treated very poorly. The lady at the counter asked me what time my flight was and I said 6:20 and right off the bat she was extremely rude and said that I missed the flight. I panicked internally and asked her how that was possible?! She said the cutoff was at 5:45am and I missed it. I asked if there were other flights available today or tomorrow and she said there was nothing she could do and that I had to call the booking company to see if they could book me. I wanted to cry because my friend had just dropped me off and I called to see if she was close enough to turn back. Luckily she hadn’t left yet. I called the booking company and they were able to book me a trip for the following day but they charged me an additional $100. I wish they had disclosed that we need to be there 45 minutes to an hour early otherwise you miss your flight. And it’s ridiculous that I had to pay an extra $100... financially it was stressful due to the covid 19 situation. I was extremely disappointed in how the lady at the check in counter at American Airlines treated me. She www extremely rude and I have never been spoken to in a way that made me feel attacked."

Pros: "The leg room was really great!"
Cons: "Difficult finding room in over head bin for carry on bags."

Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Airline to be more user friendly with connecting to free entertainment"

Pros: "I will NEVER fly UNAmerican Airlines again."
Cons: "Everything. Overbooked flight, no room, no comfort, no entertainment. Not even a usb port to charge anything. I paid for a carry on bag and was approached repeatedly to have my bag checked in due to overcrowding and no room for carry on bags."

Cons: "Other than at meals, No crew around to distribute water on a 9-10 hour flight. Crew not very nice when we were asking for water. Completely dehydrated on arrival. Ground crew very charming."

Pros: "The internet and movies"
Cons: "The AC was not turned up it was very hot and even after I asked nothing was done."

Pros: "The trip went as scheduled and arrived on time. The service was good making it a pleasant experience overall."
Cons: "As with most airlines, the seating is cramped."

Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."

Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."

Pros: "Our pilot was great. Kept us informed, was pleasant and got us in early. I appreciated the extra information he provided regarding expected turbulance and arrival updates."
Cons: "There wasn't individual entertainment unless i used my own device."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Middle seat"

Pros: "Great service!"

Cons: "Our bag was never transferred to the continuing flight. Then it took a week to catch up with us. When we complained to American they just passed the buck to the final carrier, but I think the mistake was theirs."

Pros: "Even though we were group 6 both ways, boarding was smooth and fast! We arrived early and was able to check our overpacked carry-on. Luggage was unloaded within minutes of our getting to the baggage claim. We were even able to move up to the middle of the plane coming back home!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"

Cons: "No personal entertainment devices on 737-800."

Pros: "Like the clean, comfortable seating. Great crew service and in time!"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."

Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."

Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"

Pros: "love it!"
Cons: "b/a"

Cons: "Chair wasn't that comfortable"

Cons: "My screen didn't work and the flashing ads gave me a headache"

Cons: "No screens, no wifi"

Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."

Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."

Pros: "On time for both flights"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "We haven't left yet"

Pros: "Got me to Dallas"
Cons: "Delays, felt like a hurded cow"

Cons: "Flight changed with no notification."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Too many levels of passengers"

Pros: "It was very inexpensive and on time. And it was much more comfortable than those budget airlines like Spirit, Frontier, etc."
Cons: "The snack choice was unappealing."

Pros: "On time. No issues. The last two times I have flown Delta I've had issues. Smooth sailing"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Good price."

Pros: "AA has been good to me--- Gold card a big help."
Cons: "The LAX concourse could at least 2 more coffee shops in addition to Starbucks.The wait was 40 minutes at Starbucks to get a cup of coffee!!! Get on the ball LAX!! We need our caffine in the morning."

Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."

Pros: "It was great!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."

Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "No in flight movie"

Pros: "The flight crew were really good and efficient. The plane was a new 737 and was beautiful and clean when we boarded."
Cons: "The boarding was rough. Very slow. Too many folks with carry ons. Pressure from the gate crew was put on those last in line to hurry to make gate departure time although it was fthe folks on the plane with carry ons that were keeping us from boarding. I paid the money to check a bag but folks with over sized carry on got their bags checked for free at the plane entrancewhen they ran out of room in the cabin. They ran out of room before more than half the plane was boarded."

Cons: "Fat constantly moving man next to me"

Pros: "free entertainment"

Cons: "They boarded group 1 all at once. I was group 2. They boarded all of us all at once. It was a cluster!. I haven't flew in 6 years. But when I did they boarded by so many rows. Not all at once . Boarding was horrible. It was like a cattle drive."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Almost nothing."
Cons: "Allow field research of all terminals to best decide for the next flight to book. If I were 3 seconds off and not running on my last leg to Naga, I would have been stuck in Manila for the entire duration of my trip."

Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Cons: "You made me late for my connecting flight by unloading my carry one bags slowly. It cost be $500 extra dollars and I’m stuck in Madrid until Friday which is making making me miss work. Unacceptable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Took a long time to board."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Couldn't find out online which gate my flight was leaving from. Long bus ride from jetway to plane. No in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"

Pros: "The crew was good. Seat is ok, not very comfortable."

Cons: "The crew at flights run by Iberia were particularly unpleasant. Special those in the flight from Madrid to Miami. Ladies we’re particular rude and aggressive when talking to me and my daughters. Basically as if they were doing us a favor wile doing their work."

Pros: "Loved the staff. As far as my experience flying Iberia for the first time is concerned, the the staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was not bad either as it was pretty good and included many beverage options. Would like to see how they do for flights lasting longer than 8 hours. Mine was only about 5 and a half hours from Madrid to Tel Aviv."

Pros: "The pilot did an excellent job navigating through rough weather."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess, too many special groups, and then the masses get in and it just becomes a zoo inside the plane. There are so many charges, flying these days is really not better than taking a local bus."

Pros: "Gfggfgggvfvfvfgfdhygtgdhfffdcdcf"
Cons: "Gbhbhfhyhyugfrrfffffgggffccxccccvvgfcvgvggbbvvgcvvv. B"

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: "Very comfortable. Service good"

Pros: "Everything good litle big later but always is like this..."
Cons: "The latter"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, pleasant staff, good ent. good wifi and none of that loud chit chat through the flight like tha American companies."
Cons: "The only thing I was a bit disappointed was with the meal. I don’t eat red meat and requested it theough the website, but nithing special was arranged and I ended up eating pasta. Pasta is fine and I love it, but people that don’t eat meat need to have vegetables added to their meals, or at least an egg. And for breakfast the only option was a ham and cheese sandwich, so I didn’t eat."

Pros: "Boarding, on time, entertainment awesome, food pretty good"
Cons: "Crew not that attentive, seats dont have much room"

Pros: "no stress, the crew was professional"
Cons: "all good"

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

Cons: "Horrible flight; no complimentary soft drinks are served, not even better. The baggage did not arrive and Iberia does not even deliver the baggage, even though the fault was theirs. You have to go to the airport to recover the baggage. I would NOT RECOMMEND this airline to anyone. The plane was quite old and there are no screens on the seats. One of my worst experiences flying in the last 40 years."

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: "Comfortable flight good crew and entertainment"

Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"

Pros: "Good short flight, we even arrived earlier at Bilbao."
Cons: "No food or drink."

Cons: "In LAX the boarding was unorganized and confusing to board a bus to be transported to the plane."

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

Cons: "The plane was an Airbus 330. I'm 6'2" and was uncomfortable in the seat for 7 1/2 hours. My knees hit the seat in front, and later the person there reclined to make things even worse. Since I couldn't slouch, my head was far above the seat back. I realize airlines are squeezing space and this trend will continue. It's become an accessibility problem for me."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Very good"

Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "We had to move to a different gate on arrival and that was an additional hour waiting. Felt like a sardine, absolutely no leg room. Had to pay extra to book a seat on an international flight."

Pros: "Entertainment choices were ok."
Cons: "no leg room."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating to the fact that I didn't speak too much Spanish"
Cons: "I wasn't sure my chicken was cooked. There was enough other good anyway, I wasn't hungry."

Pros: "Read my experience in the disliked comment.. and you will understand why there's nothing to like about this trip"
Cons: "I know this is a budget airline, but the customer service was beyond terrible. Originally when I booked this flight, expected departing time was at 14:30 and I booked an earlier flight in accordance with Iberia. We had a connecting flight from Lisbon to Barcelona with Vueling (coshare of Iberia) which was expected to arrive at 12:00. However, it was an hour late. In addition, Vueling insisted we volunteer to check in our carry on bags due to lack of overhead compartment space. Yet when we got on the flight, there was evidently enough space. Thus, while waiting for our baggage, our flight to Oakland was already on last call. We explained our situation to Iberia and their customer service would not help us. They refused to cover the cost of our flight and stated we needed to purchase another flight out of pocket, which was quoted to be $1100+/person! Save your time and money and book with another airline."

Cons: "2 of our bags didn't arrive to Beirut"

Cons: "Missed my connection because they weren't super clear about the gate and then just kept me on standby. Would have liked to have had some options, like actually booking my flight so maybe I could have explored Madrid on my 9 hour layover after missing my flight by 4 minutes. And then they kept me shuttling back and forth while doing this. I went through security 4 times."

Pros: "Touch screen movies were nice"
Cons: "Forgot to give me dinner then said they ran out of meat dish. Bathrooms dirty and out of toilet paper. Seemed very cramped. Couldn't find call bell to call stewardess. Not happy with Iberia"

Pros: "This wa a short, one hour flight. it's hard to rate the experience with a flight this short."

Pros: "Movie choices on flight, crew was also very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding process at MIA was disorganized."

Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "Check in was easy. I received an email form the airline tell me where to go for my connection."
Cons: "Very impatient flight attendant. She was really rude to me. Seats were very uncomfortable. The flight was held on the tarmac both departing and arriving to JFK. Botj creating a delay."

Pros: "Madrid airport is seriously beautiful Flight departed on time Seats was lie flat and comfortable Food was best of any European business class"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "good inflight entertainment selection"
Cons: "preregistered for a designated aisle seat that was confirmed. However I was assigned a middle seat in between two big passenger. Flight was late for arrival due to weather, but we were informed of that only after takeoff despite the fact that they knew it hours before departure."

Cons: "The air conditioning was not working correctly, they opened the door during boarding to allow for some relief. ??? It was just uncomfortable. Another thing which is terribly annoying is the touch screen entertainment on the back of the seat. Who in their right mind invented this? What happens when you have a inconsiderate person playing games behind you tapping your seat back like they are playing the xylophone? Ridiculous! People have lost their ability to be respectful, so please get rid of this and put the controls someplace else. This goes for all airlines. Thanks."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was over two hours delayed; flight attendants mostly ignored economy cabin, closed the curtains and chatted in their little area, and took a really long to respond to calls for attention to get water etc."

Pros: "We were overall very pleased with everything about, thank you!"

Pros: "The organization, the food, the beverages the stewardesses all were pretty bad, even the flight was late the boarding process was bad, I would not use them again."

Pros: "Free entertainment (movies and games) during the 12 hour flight as well as 2 meals and one snack."
Cons: "Received 2 ham and cheese sandwiches (which became tiresome)...maybe an alternative like pb&j sandwich should be offered."

Cons: "This is a horrible airlline. No inoformation or connecting here info in Madrid, no agents anywhere to be found. Online check-in malfunctions food was the worst food I ever saw. Airline causes huge amount of unecessary sress."

Pros: "Security lines were failrly fast, the flight left and arrived on time and the service in the plane was good great job"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were cramped. Boarding process did not follow the assigned group numbers. No drinks or snacks were offered. Checkin window assignment in the airport was not made until 2 hours before flight time and we were forced to check in the carryon boxes."

Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly in this Iberia company"
