"A319 seats very uncomfortable"

(Spain)

A319 seats are very uncomfortable. Nothing like the intercontinental flights. Very narrow, almost no space between the seats. Nothing worse than a guy in the front row sleeping while they give you the food. I had to ask the cabin staff if they could ask the guy in the front row to put his seat straight so I can eat normally.

"limited 28" seat pitch"

(United States)

Flew from London Heathrow to Madrid. I liked Iberia in the past but was extremely disappointed by the seat space. The plane had a high density configuration with very limited 28" seat pitch. It was impossible to find a comfortable seating position. I could hardly fold the table down and my legs were numb when we arrived in Madrid. The ticket was approx 500 Euro, thus the flight was extremely poor value. There was no warning when I bought the ticket, which should be mandated.

"seats did not recline sufficiently"

(United Kingdom)

This was my first experience of Iberia, flying from Lima to Madrid, and it has got to be one of the worst experiences I have had. Delayed flight by two hours, and then rerouted to a totally different airport from my destination after being told that I was going to my original destination. The aircraft, although quiet, was uncomfortable with seats that did not recline sufficiently, short seat squabs and insufficient legroom. Food was below average and staff looked like they didn't want to be there.

"seat pitch is ridiculously small"

(United Kingdom)

As stated by others the seat pitch in this aircraft is ridiculously small. I'm not exceptionally tall at 6' but it was a struggle just getting into the (window) seat. Trying to avoid rubbing holes in my knees was a full-time occupation. I suppose this could even be intentional as there was no inflight entertainment of any sort. The whole routine of trying to get out of the seat meant I deliberately allowed myself to becone dehydrated so I wouldn't need to visit the toilet. I'm not convinced the seat pitch in business class was any better.

"couldn't fit in the economy seat"

(United Kingdom)

I am 6'4 and I couldn't fit in the economy seat. Luckily I had an empty seat on my left to the side on my flight from Madrid to London. Most uncomfortable configuration I have experienced. Grossly uncomfortable.

"the most uncomfortable aircraft seat"

(United Kingdom)

Guayaquil/Madrid in probably the most uncomfortable aircraft seat I have ever had. Non-existent padding and next-to-no leg room made this a deeply unpleasant 12 hour journey and not one that I intend to repeat. In-flight entertainment is laughable - 1 large screen at the front of the cabin and a handful of smaller screens dotted about the place create lots of flicker which makes it even more difficult to sleep. I have absolutely no idea what Iberia think they are doing by fitting out brand new planes with such seats.

"staff very rude and disinterested"

(United Kingdom)

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.

"couldn't cross my legs"

(United Kingdom)

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.

"trolleys kept banging my knees"

(Spain)

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.

"seat was very uncomfortable"

(United Kingdom)

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.
