Boarding in NCL is really bad. I'm sure part of that is a directive from the airport that KLM can't change but part of that is due to KLM policy. NCL doesn't announce the gate of departure until 30 minutes before departure. However, when you arrive at the gate area, the gate agents file everyone into one long line and everyone boards from one line at one time. This line can stretch for 200m...easily. There is a separate line for groups 1 and 2 but you don't know it until you get to the gate area and agents don't announce/advertise it. Everyone else is grouped into one line. Are you in group 3? Doesn't matter...you board with group 5. Traveling with a child? Tough luck...you're stuck at the end of the line and board last. The last part is very annoying because none of the gates at NCL (with the exception of 1 used by Emirates) has a jetway. To board, you must leave the gate area, walk downstairs, walk onto the tarmac and walk up stairs to board the plane. Highly challenging if you're traveling with small children. That boarding process begs for a concession to allow people with children to board first because they will need extra time. But there is no such policy. Just a really horrible boarding experience all around.

Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."

Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."

Cons: "the food"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from 1am to 9am, then again from 9am to 11.30am. Finally got to Mexico City 12 hrs after we were supposed to. No compensation or apology was provided. Only way we found out about new flight times was through email. Airport did not make announcements."
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Guadalajara!"
Cons: "Check in process at Tijuana airport was okay, what really made the trip unpleasant was the boarding process. Three Aeromexico departures within minutes, from a small enclosed area. No seating available, no PA for announcements, basically controlled chaos. granted the airport is going through renovations, but that is still no excuse for the poor execution of the boarding process."
Cons: "Made us miss our non refundable flight due to customs line for “tourist fee” and scanner not working for passports. Even thought we still had an hour before flight was scheduled to fly they claimed that we would not have enough time to check in bags before the departure. They then proceeded to acknowledge that it was customs fault but they can’t do anything about it. The rest of my party made it to the plane with plenty of time but my husband, 2 year old, 9 month old and I were left stranded in Tijuana, Mexico. The airline didn’t even offer a credit towards another flight, they we offering a new flight two hours later for $2,800 US. Then suggested to maybe arrive earlier next time, even though we arrived 3.5 hours before our domestic Mexico flight! Then when my party arrived at the destination they ask and complained about the incident and found out, the internal note said “ missed flight due to client refusing to pay luggage fees”! Horrible!!!!! What’s worse was that we had to spend the night the airport because they shut down shuttle/car rentals services. Aeromexico worst “company policy”and liars! Tijuana international airport is a joke! Don’t waste your time and money!"
Cons: "I missed my flight by minutes and they did not try to help me at all! They told me that I would have to buy a new ticket, which was going to be twice as much as what I payed for my original ticket. I lost the money for the ticket and my weeks vacation."
Cons: "I had to pay $286 extra for two extra luggage. I was the impression that Aeromexico would charge $100 pesos for every extra luggage."

Cons: "That I did not travel in the first class or in one of the seat that where after the first class. Those that can be reclined and have a lot of space. I believe they are also first class. Let me know what I can do to be able to travel in one those seats."
Pros: "Check in was fast, personnel was very professional."
Pros: "Everything was great thanks"
Pros: "Comfort of Boeing Dreamliner and variety of entertainment"
Cons: "My first flight leg was changed to a later time without a change to my second leg. Upon calling AeroMéxico twice I was told my second leg would have to be rebooked at the airport. A couple hours later I was notified that my second flight was rebooked for THREE DAYS LATER! I immediately called AeroMéxico and ensured they booked me on my second leg that same day. Even after a flight change on the first leg, boarding out of Tijuana was delayed by at least 45 minutes due to lack of flight crew."
Pros: "Everything good."
Cons: "Not complain. Aeromexico better to fly."
Cons: "I had to keep all of my luggage with me for a 23 hour lay over"
Cons: "Booked first class, ending in a airplane that does not had first class, and I have to pay 55dlls for having another bag. Because according to them I'm allow to have an extra bag if im flying in first class, but they change the airplane and did't have first class so I was in coach( but i pay for first class in my ticket) anyways they just say I'm sorry but you have to pay. So I ended paying a ticket in first class plus an extra bag."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "I missed my from Tijuana to Guadalajara and I called kayak to let them know I still needed the flight from Guadalajara to Tijuana. I asked them not to cancel it and hey said no problem. Well that wasn’t the case my flight got canceled and I had to pay 250 dollar store to get back to Tijuana. If I’m not reimbersed by kayak I wil never use your services again and neither will my family which consists of 11 sibling of mine and more. I expect you guys to make it right. Contact me right away please."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 10 hours, we finally boarded as I was going to put my luggage on he over bin a passenger tells me I couldn’t use the space because she was saving it for her sisters who were not on the plane yet the flight attendant was next to me and allowed this to happen. There were also some very obnoxious passengers and again the flight attendant did nothing to control the situation. By far worst flight and service!"

Pros: "Thank you"
Cons: "Eveything ok"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing much. The flight was too short to critici anything of substance. You"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Accommodating clients on sittings other than their original place. In case of an accident, name identification would be wrong."
Pros: "I was so happy that Aeromexico and Copa worked together to check my bags all the way to my destination even though I was flying 2 different airlines. It made it so wonderful since I was flying alone with my four kids. Everything went smoothly with the tickets and check in. Everyone was very helpful."

Cons: "The seats are awful"
Cons: "The airplane was really old"
Pros: "Iberia is great"
Cons: "Great airline Iberia is great"

Cons: "The plane, was a piece of junk, and the AC wasn't working."
Pros: "Great selection"
Cons: "Bathrooms are not enough"
Pros: "The price was right!"
Cons: "I know the saying “you get what you pay for”, but good service from the flight attendants should be expected in the price. It was hard to get a greeting or a smile from them, far from prompt delivery of food or coffee ordered. We were traveling with two kids under 5, but there was no help offered. You are expected to pay for any and all food or drinks, including water. The airline could at least offer free water. The meal quality was mediocre for the price paid, and their stock ran out pretty fast."
Cons: "Bags did not make the flight. Served no water or drinks."
Pros: "The crew was good and the seats were fine."
Cons: "It was a short flight but it would have been nice to have a glass of water."

Cons: "There was no problems whatsoever."
Pros: "El avión estaba ok"
Cons: "A raíz de una huelga en Argentina que se declaró el 14/5 tardaron más de 10 días en comenzar a re programar los vuelos. El call center te da información falsa ya que no tienen idea de lo que ocurre. Re programado el vuelo para salir después de la hora 24 del día de paro, habilitaron 4 counters"
Pros: "Arriving ahead of time"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"
Pros: "The crew was really lovely. They handled a socially challenged passenger with a lot more patience than she probably deserved."
Cons: "I know it's probably not legal to throw passengers out of a moving plane, but I think the flight would have been a lot better without that disruptive lady making multiple scenes. I don't understand how people who behave that way are capable of travel in the first place"
Cons: "Pedí un resumen del vuelo para ver lo que compré y nunca me llegó."
Pros: "Excellent flight, timely"
Pros: "helpful crew, fast boarding"
Pros: "Crew arranged to change seats so my left leg had an aisle."
Cons: "Boarding by groups was not followed, no one to control them, just a rush to gate. No discipline by Iberia. Reserved a seat on aisle of 3 seats side section so my left leg could stretch out after surgery but they changed aircraft type w/ only 2 seats on side without notification, so my right leg had the aisle."
Pros: "The crew on board seemed efficient and friendl for this short 2.5 hour flight."
Cons: "No food, no drink, no entertainment were included with this fare. Thankfully we were so exhausted from the long haul flight immediate preceding this flight that we did not care. I'm not sure why but the gate staff was trying to get everyone to check their smaller bags including our backpacks. My husband gave in but I did not since not having them would be disaster during this trip. His backpack and many bags from other customers came about 15 minutes after the rest of the luggage so we were a little panicked. Thankfully all turned out fine."
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfort during flight."
Cons: "Confusion at time of boarding."
Pros: "The Iberia crew person named Ms. TENORIO was excellent. As an American with disabilities, I felt safe, protected and assisted throughout the flight with my various requests and needs. The rest of the crew was also .efficient and pleasant. Finnair&Iberia are tops."
Cons: "Logan Airport in Boston, Terminal E was so upsetting. There was NOBODY to help me. I arrived early because I am disabled. There should be somebody there at all times. Very distressing-=- me in a wheel chaiir with 2 suitcases and ZERO assistance. I felt helpless and sad."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very uncomfortable plane/ seats"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Food could've been better"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the overall flight conditions."
Cons: "No entretainement and flight information available."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "-Uncomfortable seats. -Old plane-- broken baggage door produced delay of over an hour. Zero accommodations were made for us to make our connecting flight at London Heathrow, scheduled for 2 hours from the anticipated arrival time. We barely made it to the gate in time after going through security, etc."
Cons: "the portion Tel Avivi Madrid was very poor. The plane was very old the business clase very bad. The seats were very old No space for the foots and NO entreatments service available. This in a five hours flights, Just horrible."
Pros: "entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "the spaniards are always LATE. and DISORGANZIED."
Pros: "They took invalid information from my travel records which resulted in my passport from 2006 being on my ticket for 2017. Aside from not helping me getting on the plane, and or another connection, they proceeded to tell me after the fiasco that they are in no way elligble to refund anyone and are a 3rd party, therefore not liable. $700 and its not there fault. They just pushed all the paperwork"
Cons: "The fact that no one in this company is liable or helpful in tge slightest after they have your money"
Cons: "crew took forever to clear up the food that was nasty..took an hour and also took forever to make rounds with coffee and tea. did not time dimming of lights to time of destination to be able to adjust to time difference. lack of bathrooms, on 4 working for a huge coach area. pretty bad experience"
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: "Nice crew and good landing"
Cons: "We paid extra to sit in Economy * I am 6-3, wife 5-4 and neither had any leg room We were sitting in 2 seats by themselves. It was an endurance contest to make it through the flight. I will never fly Iberian Airlines again. It was terrible!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Nice choice of movies, and boarding was easy."
Cons: "The space in the cabin left something to be desired compared to most transcontinental flights I've been on. Atmosphere was stuffy and hot."
Pros: "Nothing, their attitude showed no interest in helping me and my mother going back to the US."
Cons: "They were not able to bring us on board even if we made it an hour early."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and couldn't get my boarding pass to my second flight through Iberia, had to do it at Madrid and it was very inconvenient."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Could not board the plane as it was overbooked!!!!!"
Pros: "The terminal at the Madrid airport has good shopping and dining options, but it's rather far and took ~25-30min to get there (including a short wait at the custom control."
Cons: "The check in took an awfully long time, the agent took 25-30 min to finalize our boarding pass."
Pros: "A really big and nice dinner, followed by bloody mary. An ice cream was served some hours later, followed by a nice breakfast sandwich and cake before landing. All this on an evening flight from London, ending in NYC before midnight."

Cons: "The plane was delayed after boarding and nobody accommodated the temperature in the plane, food, or informing us of what was going on."
Pros: "Seats were surprisingly good, even though we could only get two center seats. There were no available business class seats, but now I'm glad I saved the expense as the economy seating was quite comfortable. They took good care of us with food and comfort, and the time passes with plenty of movies to watch."
Cons: "Can't help it, but Heathrow is just so big, and requires extensive walking, bussing from one terminal to another, then underground trains, and waiting at the C gates which don't offer the range of restaurants that the main terminal does. But we had 2 1/2 hours to make the connection and there was plenty of time with baggage checked through."
Pros: "NOTHING !"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Business was overbooked and Iberia's team at check-in totally clueless and hopeless. During the flight, crew was impolite and unhelpful. Finally, my seat was broken -- and had to be manually inclined."
