Have just flown Heathrow/Quito return with Iberia - worst flights I've ever had! I have mobility issues so had booked and paid extra for aisle seats. On way out had seat requested but food terrible, staff rude on rare occasion they appeared, only overhead screens which did not work until five hours into flight then film cut off and changed halfway through. Journey back worse, wrong seat allocated by Iberia in England who insisted return flight was a 340 400 and had allocated aisle seat. Correct on 340 400 but plane was 340 600. Centre of bassinet row seat given I could not manoeuvre out of my seat for twelve hours could not use TV screen as will not pull out when bassinet in place, was in great discomfort. Staff very rude and disinterested, would not enable me to move to vacant aisle seat when requested, felt penalised for not speaking good Spanish, food terrible and requests for water/coffee ignored. Missed connecting flight as plane nearly three hours late. No help from Iberia on ground or in air. British Airways got me back from Madrid in comfort, with courtesy and faster than hoped.

It was an 11 hour flight to Guatemala and back from Costa Rica. Both flights I couldn't cross my legs as no legroom and from the window seat couldn't see the screen which on the Guatemala flight apparently showed the same film three times and the safety film 3 times. The base of the seat has a metal bar across it with no padding on top. I had to put my pillow over it to give some relief. Come on Iberia, everyone is complaining, so get comfort a priority and more legroom. I am only 5'3" tall.

I live in Spain for 10 years now and have always avoided Iberia. In Dec 2012 I unfortunately had to fly them. Four times, no less. I am 6 foot 7 or 199 cm so I went after an emergency seat but on all 4 flights I was punished. and the trolleys kept banging my knees. Ground staff apparently didn't care (they very well noticed I was the tallest passenger) and the crew (after my complaints) had no comments on any of the flights. It was a terrible journey, very painful.

Forced to use this seat for 13.5 hours as Iberia denied me the aisle seat I had paid extra for. The seat was very uncomfortable, the passenger in front sat on my legs if I stretched them out. I could only fold my legs when the passenger beside me left their seat and I could rearrange them, it was very cramped. In addition the overhead TV screen in front of me flickered the whole journey only occasionally displaying a picture.

Extremely poor seats. New plane and feeling I was flying a 1970s plane. In-flight entertainment was short of non- existent and seat more cramped than smaller planer I used.

A new airplane and very poor onboard entertainment - two main screens in the cabin, a couple of music channels. On a 13 hour flight, it is not acceptable in 2010!

Seat very hard and seat depth seemed to short to provide adequate thigh support. I found it impossible to sleep on a long haul flight because of the hardness of the seat.

Iberia seems to have fallen asleep with their interior design. Their A340-600s are practically new, but they remain in decades in the past when it comes to passenger comfort. The seats are extremely cramped, with low headrests and almost no legroom. There's no in-flight entertainment worth mentioning (a few screens in the central row) and the audio controls are located at the least convenient spot.

11 hour flight Madrid - Havana, very difficult to move into the aisle, very narrow. Also, incredibly uncomfortable to sleep and to watch the age-old tv's, which were only mounted in the very middle of the cabin. flight!

MAD-LIM & GIG-MAD Both flights were on planes that seemed to be out of the 1970's, with decor to match. My partner's chair had an armrest that was falling off and a tray that didn't open fully. The legroom for anybody other than a young child is very tight flight!

I have flown long haul with many airlines and Iberia has to be the worst. The cabin seemed old and tired with old poor quality TVs spread sparsely through the cabin showing low budget films - service was poor, food was bad and had a very uncomfortable flight!

Exit row 22L and 22J on Iberia A340-300. Excellent legroom unlike directly of cabin divider on row 8. Bathrooms were an annoyance even if people did not use the exit row to congregate (ceiling too low). Curtains had never been used to dim the lights coming out of the bathroom and cabin crew rudely instructed me that these were not to be used because they need to move around. Cabin crew comfort gets priority then. Seat comfort was poor because of it being quite hard and unclean. Seat was offered with a good recline but slowly went up all the time. Movies were on ceiling mounted 70's TV sets. Will never fly them long-haul again if not on rock bottom fares.

The legroom was reduced from Poor to Very Poor, due to the construction of the seat pocket, which is made up of a heavy duty steel frame holding the seatpocket. In both sides it angles out in a way, which made it almost impossible to move my legs, or stretch them in any but one position. No personal video screen, just a large monitor in the center of the cabin, folding down from cabin roof, like in the 70's. I spend more than 4 hrs standing in the aisle / walking around; since it was too painful to sit still watching the mandatory movie.

Flight MAD-BIO and return, brand new plane featuring new seats with back shaped to allow legs, but the seat pitch was absolutely ridiculous. I am 6'2" so am used to reduced pitch, but that was the most cramped of my life.
