Not enough room for such a long flight



The plane was good, but there was very little legroom, and I'm not even especially tall.

The seats reclined pretty well but as a result, when the person in front of you reclined their seat you had no choice but to recline your own the same amount so you didn't feel as if you had the chair back was in your face. And once the seat in front was reclined, it was impossible to cross your legs.

The space between the seats was about the same as on inter-France flights.

As for everything else, the food was good and the entertainment was limited, but we each had an individual screen.

Better on the ground than in the air



This was my first and last flight with Iberia.
Madrid - Buenos Aires flight on an old Airbus A340 with out-of-date colors.

A summary of negative points:

- Takeoff was delayed by one hour.
- The seats were extremely uncomfortable. So much so that we used the pillows that gave us to sleep and sat on them instead so we didn't feel as if we were sitting on boards. Despite that, at the end of the eleven-hour flight we still had sore behinds and backs.
- The in-flight entertainment was terrible: there were no individual televisions and the films they showed on the main television were old.
- The food was edible but tasted like third-rate school cafeteria food. Special mention goes to the main dish: spinach cannelloni swimming in gelatinous and generic béchamel sauce.
- The music that they played in the plane before takeoff and landing was magnificent: classical music crescendoing in the same way movie music does right before a dramatic moment. Ideal for ratcheting up the tension.

Positive points:
- The plane flew.
- The legroom was OK for economy class.
- They didn't lose the luggage.
- The Madrid airport is very beautiful.

Although we had purchased a direct Madrid-Buenos Aires flight, we found ourselves in Lima



General: Although we had purchased a direct Madrid-Buenos Aires flight, we found ourselves in Lima after having left Madrid three hours late. After almost causing a riot among the passengers in Madrid, AIR COMET handed out complaint forms. Three months later, there is still no news about these complaints. We finally arrived in Buenos Aires 24 hours late without a word of apology from the airline.

The flight had a three-hour delay



General: The flight had a three-hour delay, and they didn't give us any information about it. We also ended up traveling in a smaller plane than expected, with a layover in Brazil due to technical problems.

Lamentable.



13h30 de vol sans télévision, avion très vieux (cendriers sur les sièges). Service médiocre à éviter absolument !

Je ne savais pas qu'on pouvait encore proposer des vols long courrier aussi mauvais.

Du jamais vu! Deux hôtesses absolument désagréables et incorrectes. Aucun effort pour se faire comprendre! Elles savent bien qu'elles ont un accent incompréhensible pour notre espagnol assez bon mais quand même scolaire! Pollo (poulet en espagnol), pocho (?) en argentin hôtesse de l'air. Je n'ai donc pas compris, elles n'ont pas voulu répéter et sont devenues franchement incorrectes pendant tout le voyage (13 heures de vol quand même). Je me méfiait donc au retour, mais le personnel à bord fut impeccable. Donc, heureusement ce n'était que sur ce vol. Se reconnaitront elles un jour? J'en doute mais ça soulage de le dire!

Eu égard les avis lus, avait craint de prendre IBERIA . A l'expérience, certains avis me semblent exagérément négatifs au regard d'une classe économique.

Bon rapport qualité prix. Sentiment de sécurité sur avions récents. Pas le luxe mais service à bord corrects hormis le manque de sourires.
Intérieur propre. Correctement assis et assez d'espace pour les jambes (pas moins, pas plus que sur d'autres compagnies).
Repas sans plus mais c'est mangeable !

IBERIA est dans la moyenne des compagnies. Aucun souci pour la reprendre le cas échéant.

Si vous souhaitez arriver à temps, ne réservez pas chez Air Europa. Si vous faîtes plus d'1m85, vous risquez de souffrir le martyre. J'ai rarement vu un confort aussi sommaire pour un avion long courrier, sans parler des retards incessants et du manque total de communication sur l'ensemble des 4 vols que j'ai pris dans cette compagnie. A oublier d'urgence...

On ne passe pas spécialement un bon moment !



Général: Objectif remplit : être transporter d'un point A a un point B.

Confort: Sièges pas hyper confortables, pas super larges pour 12h de vol !

Service: Service type charter, plateau repas très standard.

Sécurité: Pas de problème, aspect intérieur nickel.
