Cons: "For such a LONG flight, grateful to ask Turkish Airlines to make available bigger aircrafts."
Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."
Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Pros: "Nice flight crew"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Turkish want more money for changing the date"
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Pros: "Liked that they moved me to a better seat - was sitting next to a cranky old Turkish man - who complained every time we brushed his legs getting into our seats- he refused to stand to let us into our seats- I said this is not gonna work and they found me a great seat with some normal passengers."
Cons: "Food was just ok, plus it’s a longer trip - I understand they kill the lights to let people sleep but offering more drinks - soda and water would b nice - rather than having to go to back and beg- they know who is awake and watching movies - b nice to ask."
Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."
Cons: "Shake all the time,vomited"
Pros: "Excellent crew service & food/beverage offerings"
Pros: "Great to watch live sports. Loading was fine. Food terrible. Staff ok."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is so overpriced, crowded and small."
Pros: "Punctual in terms of reaching destination, all else average."
Cons: "Less leg space, pantry service below expectations."
Pros: "The crew is very nice and try to make the flight experience easier."
Cons: "They lost my luggage, and this is not the first time either"
Pros: "Overall flight is good"
Cons: "The crew is really not aware of how to deal with passengers of various levels. They don't seem to have the sense of responsibility..."
Pros: "Luggage policy, helpful ground and air crew. Price."
Cons: "IST stoppover, damaged luggages."
Pros: "The staff is very nice and good service and very helpful"
Cons: "The Delay and the rough landing"
Pros: "Very grateful our flight wasn't packed- this allowed us to lay down a little and sleep. The attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Sloppy cabin crew at the time of embarkation. Bad entertainment system (horrible touch screen, earphones with loose contact), made a 7 hours trip an unforgettable experience. Food quality was marginal. A drastic contrast with the previous flight of the same airline company (but from Amsterdam to Istanbul), which was very good."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."
Cons: "When boarding the flight from Turkey, to Mumbai , we had to climb up the ladder with our hand luggage.Being senior citizen and traveling in Busniss class was very hard for us."
Cons: "I was selected to seat near the window before departure dare unfortunately i found my self in the middle of the people, so dissapointed"
Pros: "Everything. Clean plane, cool cologne and lotion in spacious bathroom. Crew was super friendly, helpful and accommodating to us travelers w kids."
Cons: "departure time changed 3 times"
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Staff were helpful and professional."
Cons: "The 2 flights were delayed, I went to my work late Both bags were broken"
Pros: "What I liked about my flight was the service was the plane was up and running."
Cons: "What I didn't understand or appreciate was that this flight was supposed to take off at 8pm, as it was already delayed, but the plane just sat on the tar mat until 11pm without any explanations from the crew, no announcements, and most disturbing: not even the offer of a drink of water for the passengers as we waited blindly."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and everything was good"
Cons: "Lost my baby stroller and didn't found when arrived"
Pros: "Quick flight with breakfast"
Cons: "Boarding process was a little bit chaotic"
Pros: "They put a fabric pad on the seat to make it softer . I'm 6' and was comfortable. They have nice children's toiletry kits. Great entertainment system, tons of movies and shows."
Cons: "If you sit the the second cabin on the 777 they run out of buns and champagne by the time they get to you which is unacceptable for business class and they only finished the meal service 2 and a half hours into a 10:30 pm departure flight which is way too slow. They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and the wrong gate was initially listed for my connecting flight, causing me to miss my flight. I asked to transfer to the next flight, but the staff there argued with me and refused to do so, saying I must purchase another ticket. I was forced to purchase a visa, go through passport processing, and purchase a new ticket that cost nearly as much as my entire round trip ticket from the US. I then had to pay to stay overnight in a hotel and had to make alternate arrangements to meet my hosts when I finally reached my destination."
Pros: "Crew did a good job handling a stressful situation."
Cons: "Security process for boarding is a mess, with absurd redundancy and tiresome rechecking of passports an d boarding passes, inconsistent application of carry on rules and long waits. Then we boarded and sat for two hours. The aircraft should be checked out and ready to go before boarding. Then, in Chicago, it took almost 2 hours to get our luggage."
Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"
Cons: "It never happened."
Pros: "My first flight with a different airline."
Cons: "A very rude ticket sales woman in Turkish Airline Kiosk, wandering an airport for two hours due to untrained staff and Turkish Airlune "help desk", being cheated out of $400, and finding my baggage smashed up."
Cons: "In Istanbul, wheel chair facility was not provided. Wheel chair facility was there with itinerary."
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"
Pros: "Stewards, air hostesses, food, entertainment & the toiletries kit"
Cons: "Seat size! Boarding queues"
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Cons: "Forced me to take beed as Chicken wasnt available. Very reluctant to arrange for an alternative option, and this is after they were already running behind on serving dinner."
Cons: "Paid £400 as penalty for being late for the first portion of the flight, although I wasn't going to miss my connection since the layover was over 10 hrs"
Pros: "Very helpful and respectfull crew"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins after the designated time"
Pros: "Turkish airlines crew & service are excellent especially if you compare it to those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Courtesy of the crew & good old fashion meal service. Also the entertainment on board."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean seats, good food..."
Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"
Pros: "I got such an amazing deal on this flight that I could barely believe how incredible my experience was. Will DEFINITELY fly Turkish Airlines again!!"
Cons: "No problems at all"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled then stood for hours in a line just for a hotel room. Then waited in hotel room till afternoon the next day with no news. Horrible way to handle customers"
Pros: "Plane was new and good"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Very old aircraft. Looked extremely run down and many things were broken."
Pros: "great crew great seats great entertainment great pilots great food and the greatest airline in the world"
Cons: "free wifi"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and left early! Hold luggage arrived really quickly on conveyor belt."
Cons: "Nothing on this occasion."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Pros: "Easy on boarding"
Cons: "Staff were reluctant to serve us extra drinks. Asked for 2 miniature bottles of wine as they are so small. Told that customers were only allowed one. Bought some later though although the staff weren’t keen"
Cons: "Heathrow is the worst airport when you have a passenger who needs a wheel chair."
Cons: "Arrangenents for wheel chairs at London were poor compared to Chicago which was excellent ."
Pros: "Good onboard entertainment. Normal headphone jacks."
Cons: "Arm rests did not move all the way up, so difficult to sleep on this overnight flight. Reduced seat pitch compared to some other airlines."
Pros: "Warm welcome, on time and comfortable"
Pros: "BA lounge at Boston Airport"
Cons: "Departure delayed more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Loved the 787. One flight attendant was just great. She made the difference on the flight! Didn't get her name but the trip was made better by her. Thank you!"
Pros: "No free drinks no entertainment"
Pros: "On time, very pleasant and helpful staff"
Cons: "The flight was late and the info was not shared. The attendants were not helpful and were unkind. The food was served in a strange timing."
Pros: "Nice aircraft! Very modern."
Pros: "very pleasant attendants. good amount of snacks and drinks. good entertainment options"
Cons: "a bit crammed"
Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding and exiting the plane was fairly quick. There were 2 exits we used which sped up the process."
Cons: "The rude British Airways representatives at check in should be retrained. One gentleman asked me if I wanted to check in my carry on because the flight was full. He said it was optional and I said no. He continued to pressure me into doing this and I clearly told him no several times. I guess he got upset that I didn’t wanna check in my bags that he asked me to place my SMALL CARRY ON (my backpack) in the luggage size checker to verify it fit. It did fit except a small part poked out because I had stuffed some souvenirs in there. It was clearly small and could clearly fit under my seat, but he said I had to check it in. This angered me but I kept my cool and walked away. Customer service doesnt start with British Airways."
Pros: "Great safety video, made me laugh."
Cons: "The crew could be quite curt at times"
Pros: "Large plane operated by Iberia"
Cons: "Uninspiring food"
Pros: "Good size seats"
Cons: "The crew were rude and dismissive"
Pros: "Friendly crew...that’s it."
Cons: "Ordering my ticket was a pain, I couldn’t check in online, I was stuck in the middle section in the back for all my flights, they overbooked and we were delayed twice as a result, the entertainment was poor, the food was mediocre, and the seats were not comfortable. There are much better options to fly."
Pros: "Sitting in exist row with leg room"
Cons: "Seats are small, not enough elbow space. Movie selection was bad."
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Entertainment need more movies"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Cons: "Rude staff at the airport. Short overlay did not have enough time to get our bags and checkin again that was ridiculous to have to check in again!"
Cons: "On the flight from Barcelona to Boston we almost missed a connecting flight because of many steps to get from one plane to another an long lines at every One has to allow at least 3 hours to transfer from one flight to another"
Pros: "Me and my husband were upgraded from world traveler plus to business class, which we are thankful for"
Cons: "We were unable to order special meal online and were told to contact onboard crew for meals. When we contacted them inflight, they said they don’t have meals!!! And we were left to starve the whole night, while food was served for all around us. The really shocking thing is none of the crew had the courtesy to offer some snacks or bread. These especially when we were seated in business class!"
Pros: "Ontime, no nonsense flight"
Cons: "Sadly disappointed that drinks (even soda) are no longer free!"
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Flight canceled want able to rebook"
Cons: "As a Kenyan Passport Holder living in Canada on a PR status was denied right to travel to Kenya via LHR transit. WHY ? will you help us with our rights what compensation will help to alleviate the pain"
Pros: "Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Seat and seat space"
Pros: "I have no complaints about the flight. It was a full flight but we tooked off in time and food/ drinks service was prompt. Unfortunately I left my phone on the flight and I have not got it back yet, a full week later."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Late catering delayed flight. Fix ground services."
Pros: "Every thing on time no Daly"
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."
Cons: "Took 2 hours 20 mins to be offered in flight catering on a 2 hour 30 min flight. Next time will be bringing my own food and drink."
Pros: "The flight boarded and left on time. The seat was comfortable with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was a bit cold part of the time."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"
Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."
Cons: "Two big devaluations to oneworld emeralds: 1) boarding is totally unregulated: they call oneworld emeralds first but everyone just comes stampeding through and they don't check, 2) no free beverages in economy - even for Oneworld emeralds - the highest tier - despite just having had champagne in the first class lounge for being emerald. How does this make sense?"
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: "Need full quality service!"
Cons: "Limited service!"
Pros: "Efficient and polite crew and excellent entertainmemt!"
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Pros: "For economy class it was good seats (bulkhead), the crew were nice, and the food was good."
Cons: "The tiny screens for movies were awful. Worst of all, the horribly loud voices that nearly break eardrums when the crew comes on during the flight was both painful and annoying."
The flight was delayed multiple times. I had to buy a new tickets (4 tickets) for my family for a total of $5200 cnd And missed thanks giving with our family. Very very poor and disappointing service.
Room on aircraft was nice main cabin. Interaction with cabin crew could of been nicer....only seen them once
Incompetent crew at the boarding counter. Never flying AA again.
Pros: "At 6’9” tall, it was decent"
Cons: "Not on the flight"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Pros: "Everything was on time considering the heavy Holidays travels."
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Pros: "No amazing crew, just average. The should airline should have follow through on a specific request, but the airline's computer wipes out such things."
Cons: "Airlines should listen to the requests of the passengers."
Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Pros: "Fast boarding, flight relatively smooth, got to my destination pretty quickly as well."
Cons: "Typical tight seating, aircraft showing age."
Cons: "The wifi signup process not seemless with Android."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the flight attendant was very helpful with all the questions I had, thanks for the wonderful first time flying."
Cons: "Nothing give a 10/10"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Pros: "Even thou flight was delayed we arrive at a decent time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours due mechanical issue Missed connecting flight Waited in line for 2 hours for a hotel comp. had to pay 20$ to get to hotel because there was no shuttle Still stuck in Dallas. Never made it to Sam fran. Extremely disappointed I expect compensation"
Cons: "The drink service came a little late in the flight... but that is a suggestion more than a complaint."
Pros: "Crew on and off plans were helpful and nice."
Cons: "Delayed for hours for a short one hour flight with multiple gate switches."
Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."
Cons: "KTerrible coffee. Tasted stale"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."
Cons: "6hr flight with NO entertainment? Not acceptable."
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Pros: "good price and a good route"
Cons: "This turned out to be a 'code share' flight operated by American Airlines. As such, neither Qantas nor American Airlines would allow me to buy premium seats so we could have extra leg room. They said the 'code share' blocks seat sales! Be ware Also found out that American Airlines does not serve meals on flights from Toronto to LAX. I was told they only serve meals on "international flights" but that I could buy a sandwich or snack. Unfortunately they only had 4 sandwiches on board , which sold within the first 2 rows of the plane!"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"
Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."
Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"
Cons: "Too many delays. Having to de-board after boarding."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Very little room amongst the seats. Tiny armrests and little room to move in your seat without disturbing the neighbor. No entertainment"
Cons: "Awful experience, we're travelling with a Toddler and they didn't have any consideration at all...the staff always with a bad attitude"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline at all and wasn’t even offered water on a close to 3 hour flight. Bare bones service to be sure."
Cons: "Infotainment system"
Pros: "I notified the crew that I would have a very short time upon arrival in Madrid to catch my connecting flight to Santiago. They transferred me to a seat close to the front so I could disembark faster. That allowed me to reach the gate as the boarding began."
Cons: "The company handling the check-in for Iberia is inept. The line reserved for baggage drop-off was used to prioritize check-in for a large group, making the benefit of online check-in meaningless! Also, the supervisor who intervened on my check-in issue lacked basic customer service skills!"
Cons: "It should have departed on time. It departed 50 minutes later than the original time."
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: "It was IBERIA Flight:"
Cons: "It was IBERIA Flight:"
Pros: "Al the devices provided"
Pros: "Everything. Perfect flight, service, food and Ann early arrival. All great. Memorable."
Pros: "I was sitting in primer economy with lots of legroom. It was good service, on- time flight"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were okay."
Cons: "Iberia was unable to ticket us all the way through to our final destination when we checked-in at our origin (Faro). We then had to go through an arduous process to get handwritten boarding passes in Madrid. This put us at the end of the line for boarding. Then the gate agent refused to let us board because the boarding passes Iberia customer service wrote and stamped didn’t have ticket # on ithem. The gate agent made it clear that it was all on me to go back to the agent at customer service to get it addressed and make it back in-time. The other passenger was my 80 year old mother who a I had to leave unaccompanied at the gate so i’d have some chance of running across the terminal and making it back in-time, which fortunately I did. The complete lack of interest in helping or even acknowledging that this was their mistake is the reason why I will never fly Iberia again."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Very tight seats. I’m not that tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front"
Pros: "Staff was very nice There was a medical emergency that deleted our deplaning Passagers were concered regarding their connection The medical staff was still on board when we deplayed"
Cons: "I was not able to check in on line Had difficulty in getting a contact phone who dismissed my concerns Just said show up two hours before Good thing I went earlier since Ben Gurion has long lines for security before one gets to the ticket counter"
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."
Pros: "Flight to our destination: sat in exit row for extra cost. I was freezing cold and was told no extra blankets. Also staff were rude and unhelpful telling us to remove all things from the floor for take off and landing ( which i accept is the policy) but since we had nowhere to put them except on our laps (she’s, books, sweaters pocket book) as there is no seat in front for an exit row to put under. The staff member kept saying “up, up” motioning with her hand, but made no offer to assist us in finding overhead space. Upon our return flight, our pre booked exit row seats were switched on us right before boarding in a rude and matter of fact wayand my husband and I were separated one on either side of the aircraft. When we queried this, we were told it would be up to us to switch with the person sitting next to us. Overall very disappointing. I would not fly Iberia again."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "they book flight connections too close in madrid, resulting in big hassles, especially if passport control is also involved"
Pros: "Lunch meal was good. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was VERY hot and uncomfortable! Seats were very cramped and uncomfortable. Not at all an enjoyable experience. Flight was delayed and passengers were bussed to another aircraft for outside boarding. Connecting in New York was very rushed and stressful due to the delay."
Pros: "New plne, service from American Airlines was good news friendly."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had to wait in the Madrid airport for seven hours before getting a new flight and retrieving my luggage (five for the new booking, 2 for luggage). It's understandable that flights get cancelled due to weather, but the handling of re-accomodations should be much faster. Iberia did not have enough people to handle it and made no effort to bring in more help. Instead, workers were continually leaving. By the end, there were only two people helping the line of dozens of stranded travelers. I was very disappointed."
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."
Cons: "No food no drinks no entertainment and my knees where hitting the seat in front and I am 5 10"
Cons: "Puse un reclamo pues me cobraron 150€ por un perrito de soporte médico y no me han respondido al respecto."
Pros: "Easygoing friendly staff"
Cons: "Wasn't informed about this being an American airlines flight. No prior information given. Restroom in the plane was dirty and smelly. Did not give me a landing card even when told that I don't have a UK passport."
Pros: "The extra leg room in the exit row. In spite of the fact we had to pay extra for it, it was well worth it. The crew was courteous and professional. The flight was on time."
Pros: "Meal and drinks"
Cons: "Flight was extremely packed and 5 hours long. It was loterlly from hell."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding and didn't even offer water for free on flight."
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: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not really an Iberia issue but Barajas airport needs to fix this. The queues for Passport checks were completely unruly - no single lines, the dividers were left wide rather than keeping people single file, people were then jockeying for position to get through- because most were now risking missing their flight, tempers flared. Everyone was angry. A very unpleasant airport experience. Which certainly lends itself to an unpleasant flight experience. People were so worked up the tension was palpable. A problem easily fixed, if only there was some care. The passport check attendants moved at a snails pace. It felt deliberate. In these trying times, I was not impressed."
Pros: "My flight boarded easily, and left on time. The seats were comfortable, the food included a hot meal for dinner, and the entertainment available was varied. We even landed in Madrid a little early. Traveling is always trying, especially in coach. The Iberia experience was very pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing really stands out unless you want to make coach like 1st class for the same price"
Pros: "I had the next seat empty next to the window so I can sleep more comfortably. The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The air conditioning was too cold. I was sneezing the whole trip."
Cons: "Seat recliner broken at 21B so seat will not stay in upright position. Passenger bouncing through out flight banging my knees. Passenger behind continually kicking my seat, passing people grabbing seats and jerking it. NOT A FUN RIDE"
Pros: "Good to eat on flight"
Cons: "Spacing was impossible for someone 6'2" or taller. It was incredibly tight for everyone. Extremely uncomfortable to fly for 3 hours like this."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly. They provide great customer service."
Cons: "Food choices limited. Entertainment limited. Seats are very tight. Not very comfortable."
Pros: "It got me hone."
Cons: "Very small seats we were not given any snacks or drinks."
Pros: "Customer service, food, comfort."
Cons: "Not a lot of movies to watch."
Cons: "We were re-booked for a flight a day later without any apparent reason and were forced to stay a day in Madrid. I lost a day of work and my kids lost a day of school."
Cons: "When I got on the plane there was urine on my seat and no one told me before I sat down. DISGUSTING"
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours late"
Cons: "The aircraft has air condition problem and they whole flight was extremely HOT!!!! Cabin crew paid very little attention to this until we were 4 hours into the flight and basically said there is nothing I can do. I call for the head of the cabin crew and she took 2 hours to come talk to me. I had to wait for here to come out from her flight nap in the crew quarters."
Pros: "Great on board entertain"
Cons: "The seats are two small"
Pros: "flight and crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats were terrible. Once the person in front of you recline his seat,, you can not pull down your tray table and you are force to recline your seat so you can earn a little more space."
Pros: "Iberia flight to Madrid"
Cons: "No instructions on how to make connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Lost luggage for now 2+ days costing me a lot of money to try to enjoy the trip and a friends wedding."
Pros: "The plane is so outdated, the seats feel like they are made of wood. I can hardly believe it is safe to fly such an old aircraft. There is no entertainment, no wifi, no power. Certainly no TVs that worked. But most importantly was the uncomfortableness of the old seats."
Cons: "So uncomfortable and outdated. 12 hrs on a flight with no entertainment and hard seats was brutal. I paid $45 for a seat assignment and then got moved to another seat!"
Pros: "Kind staff"
Cons: "Cushioning on seats worn out - getting uncomfortable. Slightly confusing on who was boarding when; crowd was blocking entry. The path to the plane was not covered, despite the rain and the suitcase had to be left on a cart without cover - I ended up with wet clothing in my suitcase."
Pros: "Spaciousness of aircraft, comfort of aircraft (vibration, noise)"
