“Comfortable flight, and Cheap”
Review of Iberia


Reviewed 3 August 2016

Most of my flights are within Europe these days, so I took this cheap flight from Santander to Lisbon. The flight was okay, arrived on time, and nothing was lost. As is the case with most airlines these days, Iberia charges you for EVERYTHING. So, if you're going to check luggage, BUY IT IN ADVANCE, if you can! Otherwise you'll pay more to check your luggage at the gate. And buy your snacks and drinks at the terminal or before you arrive, because you'll be paying a lot more for the stuff Iberia sells you on the plane (which is why I scored their food and drinks so low). Plus there's no inflight entertainment. None. It isn't that the inflight entertainment is terrible -- it's nonexistent. So be sure your smartphone is charged up with music or videos or games. Fortunately, it's only a 1.5 hour flight, so no big loss there. And one last bit of advice, Lisbon airport is VERY disorganised, so do plan on arriving there with enough time to get to the right place well ahead of time if you want to avoid the stress of missing your flight due to getting lost.

A 'code-share" flight with American and we booked not quite understanding it was a Business Plus service - this meant the seats slide down flat with two duvets and pillows and ....good night!
We were greeted with a dry sherry and a welcoming cup of delicious consomme - and that was just the start of the great service. For lunch we enjoyed a duck pate, mixed salad with a very fine mini-bottle of Spanish olive oil with herbs, a small crustini with cheese .. as appetizers!
We'd fly this airline anytime, anywhere!

I always fly from Costa Rica to Bordeaux for the convinience of Madrid connexion,to avoid US,
I feel confortable with Iberia spirit being latin,
It seems that since the partnership with BritishAirways the rigor has improved,let's see
the future !
The food is better starting from Madrid than the reverse.

It was wonderful flying Business Class for the first time with Iberia, great service! Lots of legroom, the food and wines were amazing and the staff was always attentive. I highly recommend this upgrade for long flights. The staff had all the details to the key regarding our connecting flights in Madrid.
