Cons: "The flight to Madrid left with about 15 passengers waiting to leave the flight from Chicago. We landed before our flight to Madrid was to depart.

Cons: "Not even free water"
Pros: "Orderly boarding. Great entertainment options."

Cons: "The flight from Ireland to Spain was fine. The flight from Chicago to Ireland, absolutely horrible. I will never use Kayak again. My wife and I showed up to O'Hare in Chicago to be told that the flight is cancelled. There was no notification, absolutely nothing. I was on hold for nearly 2 hours with Kayak. Once finally connected, the customer service agent, argued with us for nearly an hour saying the flight was not cancelled!!!! We googled it! We told him to look up on google, and he kept on saying we were wrong! After 3 hours go by, he tells "oops, it's cancelled". We wasted nearly 5 hours with Kayak to try and get different seats, and then Kayak gave my wife and I seats that are not sitting together. If Kayak, looked on google, and actually tried to help I would've had seats with my wife. So disappointing. Worst experience I've had with customer service and with a company. I'll never use Kayak again."

Cons: "We were waiting for a long time in the bus from the airport to the aircraft. Once we got to the plane, we were waiting inside the bus again."
Cons: "It was over an hour late with little information about why. The gate wasn't shared until the last minute. Boarding was awful and confusing. We were stuck sitting at the gate for a long time with no air and the crew didn't deserve the last ten rows any water. The luggage also took forever to get onto the belt. Overall bad"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Providing more drinks and beverages"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Starters, main course, etc where very odd combination of flavors and therefore not at all appealing. Don't provide beverage service in Business outside of meal times. Seats good but space is restricted. Feel closed in."
Cons: "Real time information about departure and gate info for delayed flight would have been helpful"
Cons: "We had to pay $120 for a checked bag because it “weighed too much”. The lady at the check in counter said they were weighing everyone’s at the gate so there was no way to get around it This however was a lie and they were not checking weight and people got on without having to pay the outrageous fee"
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The boarding crew and gate staff where rude."

Cons: "Delayed transport to flight, tiny non-reclining seats. Food offering mediocre and had to flag down flight attendant just to get water they we're giving to everyone but some of us apparently."
Pros: "I travel for pleasure a lot and this was my first time flying TAP Portugal. I flew from LIS to MAD and the crew were overall more friendly and smiling than on US domestic flights. The plane was clean and bright. I did not notice if the seats recline. I will be using them for short flights throughout Europe when I return for visit."
Cons: "Flight was so short they rushed us eating the cookie and only water was served that I could tell. Also, TAP has their own boarding check-in wing of Lisbon airport. It was not clearly marked and Eropean arrows pointing up could mean to continue forward, as well as go to upper floors."
Cons: "Bad experience with charged"
Cons: "Unruly boarding lines. Plane late .flight attendant less than friendly"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, your site said that I would not have a luggage charge, but I was charged 37 euros more when I checked in."
Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Pros: "It was a very short flight, so non-reclining seats were not a problem. They also seemed a nice distance from the seat in front, so there was no problem of having the person in front basically in your lap."
Cons: "They handed out a small biscuit which made me expect water or coffee to have with it. This is not the case."
Pros: "overall good service; seats are full recline leaning type, which isn't the most comfortable solution, but ok."
Cons: "TAP connecting flight was three hours late"
Pros: "was a direct flight"
Cons: "we were made to exit down a slepery stairs and pack ourselves like sadines on a bus to the terminal..not good!"
Cons: "I booked this flight months and months ago on Kayak, excited by what I thought was an excellent deal to go visit an old friend. When I got to the Boston airport, I was told there is a fee to check a bag with the ticket type I purchased- of 90 DOLLARS each way!!! This is absurdly expensive. I tried to pay with cash as I had very little on my card, and was told this isn't possible. So I had to pay the fee, and arrive at my 7 hour layover with next to no cash on my card- too little to buy a meal in the airport. So I had a miserable layover experience. I do not recall seeing this baggage fee listed anywhere on Kayak when I booked my flight- it looks like this policy took effect in September 2017, but I booked my flight in July. I am very upset about this additional charge- it is dishonest and I will not be flying with TAP again. I am also considering using alternatives to Kayak, as the TAP representative said that it's Kayak's fault the baggage fee wasn't listed."
Cons: "everything is ok but food is bad. better give to passenger fruit or bisquit, wafers"
Pros: "Of no change is BULLSHIT"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew very friendly, check in process easy"

Pros: "On time and the plane may have been the cleanest aircraft I've ever been on."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind. All in all, a very nice travel experience."
Pros: "Left on time. Served food and drinks. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Served food and drinks. Orange "juice" tasted awlful. Bland sandwich. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "No water, but it's a short flight so they probably just didn't have time."
Pros: "The crew was fine. Plane clean and comfortable. Would fly again."
Cons: "Agent at the gate wouldn't let me do a medical pre-board. When I checked it, the ticket agent said it wouldn't be a problem, I should just ask at the gate. The agent there said there would be no reason to board early even though I have a doctor's note. She said I could board with everyone else and was extremely rude and dismissive. Thank goodness the ticket agent helped me out (by putting me in a seat where I'd be first to board), but if he hadn't, it would have been a terrible experience."
Cons: "It did not included luggage cost which means i had to pay additional cost. You SHOULD state it in booking pages (NOT LINK). If i knew it i would never use TAP. I found direct flight, cheaper. I want you to pay back."
Pros: "Nice crow"
Cons: "We spent about a half hour waiting to take off"
Pros: "Easy checking and boarding process"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees not updated on website. Despite having done my due diligence about baggage fees, the airline didn't update their website since October for my November trip. So I get to airport and pay 74 euro each way for two bags! Old planes and poor customer service Also, nobody picks up their customer assistance telephone number"
Pros: "I only liked the price of the fare....everything else matched the price of the fare. Cheap and bad."
Cons: "First of all I fly all the time at least once a week. This is my first time experiencing roaches on an aircraft!. I tried calling someone but I was looked at and ignored because I wanted to ask top change seats. I didnt want to cause a scene and affect the airlines reputation with people freaking out or feeling uncomfortable so I just moved to another aisle. Service very mediocre and plane was old."
Cons: "To whom It May concern: My husband and I had a very very bad time trying fly from lisbon to Madrid through TAP. We booked together under same booking number. We don't know why my husband's ticket had been cancelled?? Thanks good! We have to spend five times more money to buy another ticket to fly together!! Now we try to find out what happened. Nobody want to take the responsibility!! Hope someone can give us the answer! Qi"

Cons: "Outdated aircraft, limited space."
Pros: "Booked 1 month in advance... was treated unfairly"
Cons: "I booked one month in asvance and was told that I would be a standby flyer.. even after explaining that I had an international connection flight in madrid. I did not appreciate the added stress this news gave me."
Pros: "The crew was cackling and having fun in the back loudly, meanwhile there was no communication with us as to why we were late or when we would be arriving. When I called one of them over she had no answers and when I told her about our connecting flight she giggled and said I probably wouldn’t make it. We missed our connecting flight and we’re rerouted 4 hours later. We’ve missed our boat to Venice and all we received was an 8 euro lunch voucher."
Cons: "It would have been great to have left on time, arrived on time and caught our flight. I also would have been better if we hadn’t been laughed at and actually aided us to catch our flight."
Cons: "Fly on time, put babies together in one location. Have better food"
Cons: "Shorter lay overs between flights Direct flights from Palma to San senastian"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no announcement was made. The customers should be made aware. I paid extra for a premium seat which was too small for my husband’s knees to fit. He had to sit the whole flight with his knees turned sideways Into the aisle."
Pros: "Well, I liked that I had the aisle seat."
Cons: "It couldve not been 44 minutes late in take off. It was stressful because I reserved a shuttle that would've left me had I been an hour late. And there was no explanation; just copious waste of my time"
Pros: "I was glad that the staff was able to communicate in English. It helps when you're in a foreign country."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Never check in your carry-on if they say there are too many carry-on's on the flight. I saw a lot of Spanish say no when they asked them to, now I know why. I am in Dublin 2days now with NO LUGGAGE or carry on, I have nothing, it all got "misplaced" in transit!"
Cons: "The last seat are located almost inside the toilets. The crew was unhelpful"
Pros: "Entertainment selections were great"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, and they were playing music that was really bad"

Cons: "Late boarding, late departure, waited over 30 minutes for bags"
Pros: "boarding was efficient. crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "seats were very close together, not much leg room."
Cons: "The airport in Paris"
Pros: "Today was a very early day and making a connecting flight in Madrid to Lisbon was very tight because of a gate change. I was totally convinced that the bags would not make it and they did. Very impressed with Iberia and the efficiency of the staff. The flights were pretty full and everything from take off to landing worked like a charm."
Cons: "I thought when I made the reservation that I had booked two aisle seats but had not and it was hard to sit in the middle seat when you are claustrophobic. Thankfully the flights were short."
Cons: "Durante el vuelo mucho ruido por parte de otros pasajerOs y ningún control por parte del equipo a bordo. Bastante molesto, sobre todo tomando en cuenta que era un vuelo de madrugada donde casi siempre de quiere dormir en el trayecto."
Pros: "The crew was great. We traveled with a two year old and they were very helpful."
Cons: "It was a tight fit."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes, for no apparent reason; and therefore the connecting time at Madrid for me to get my flight to Chicago, which would have been 60 minutes if the flight was on time, was cut down to 30 minutes. And the terminal where the connection was was 25 minutes away -- and this doesn't include time for immigration at Madrid. I had to run all the way, break the queue, and made it though they had shut the gate and had to re-open it. The connections are poorly timed."
Cons: "not sure why we left 30 mins late, we therefore arrived late in MAD and had to literally run to catch our overseas flight. Luggage left behind, no need to say"
Cons: "they book flight connections too close in madrid, resulting in big hassles, especially if passport control is also involved"
Pros: "The staff was amazing!"
Cons: "The seats are very small."
Pros: "Nothing, your flight selection does not flag incorrect airports."
Cons: "When you book through an airline it will flag a different airport from the one you arrive at. We arrived at TFS and the return flight was through TFN. When I called customer service Iberia Airlines rejected any refund and I ended up spending three extra hotels nights and Flights on Air Europa. My total out of losses were nearly $1,500 USD"
Pros: "It was good flight going and returning on time no complaints"
Cons: "The disorganization before the flight st the ticket counter"
Pros: "Good flight, it took less than expected."
Cons: "Cheap food, especially the breakfast."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and easy to travel from SDC to CDG. The crew was very friendly and helpful at the gate and on the aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing. Great crew and easy flight. Connection in Madrid left plenty of time."
Pros: "I got bumped to first in line after they wanted people with only small bags or backpacks to board first."
Cons: "Not really a complaint about Iberia Express as an airline but I hate getting to Berlin Tegel. I took the bus, and it is so hard to stand up with all your luggage on those buses. It's that or a 20 euro taxi ride. At least Madrid airport has a railway line to get into the city."
Cons: "Very poorly managed gate and service for Iberia. Long lines, no organization. Impossible to get any information."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "perfectly and comfortable!"
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Pros: "In general, I have always had great flights when using Iberia; the MAD >NAP flight segments included."
Cons: "Iberia Express uses smaller, Airbus320s and certainly packs passengers in! I'm 6'5"/191cm, and the flight between MAD to NAP almost 3 hours. That's a long time to sit with knees wedged into the unpadded seat in front of you. Window seats have even less room than aisle seats. It also makes things worse when passenger in front wants to fully recline their seat, passenger next to you wants to sprawl out - very claustrophobic! Also, there are no freebies on this flight charging for even a cup of coffee or glass of water!"
Pros: "not budget airline"
Cons: "sadin cabin..."
Cons: "The stewardess kept on hitting my husband who due to crammed seats could not fit."
Pros: "Respectful flight attendants, flight was on time. It was perfect."
Pros: "The seats and service"
Pros: "It was good, the pilot was great."
Cons: "Iberia has been consistently late in arrival. I missed my connecting flight on the way out to spain and nearly missed a connecting flight returning to the USA. I had to literally sprint to the gate. My bags never made it to the states with me. I am still waiting for them to return. I don't feel I can take Iberia again for any future flights"
Cons: "atencion al publico, de parte del personal en el aeropuerto en madrid"
Pros: "Flights were on time!"
Cons: "The check-in process was terrible. On-line check-in was impossible. Problems stemmed from ticket being written for multiple carriers compounded with code-sharing issues. Unable to check-in via computer and no phone help on Sunday. When I went to the airport early to check in for flight, they were only able to check-in the first two segments leaving me scrambling in Frankfort to get checked in for Lufthansa flight. Never again!!!!"
Pros: "My carry on luggage did not arrive on the plan but finally was delivered at home complete and safe. Thanks a lot Iberia"
Cons: "That the carry on luggage was taken to the luggage area"

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The legroom"
Pros: "We went from A to B."
Cons: "Nobody spoke any english, ONLY SPANISH. The seats were extremelly tight, we were offered nothing, not even water, and there were 4-5 girls in the plane yelling to each other about something that had happened and they had to kick out one of their friends and no one would tell them to be quiet."
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "Very quick. Great service"
Cons: "The seats. The gate was one og the last ones"

Cons: "Nothing about this Flught I didn’t like"
