Seat 1a
From Santander - Santander (SDR)
To London - Stansted (STN)

Probably The most hard working airline crew in the world. They deserve all of my respect. Superwoman and supermen on board. All the Ryanair flights I have taken I have been struck by cabin crew energy. Non stop hard working from minute one till landing. How would I say it.....If you, as cabin crew, survive Ryanair, then you can do any airline, any type of plane, any country, any kind of passenger, low cost, private aviation or super posh airline. God knows you can.

Seat 28c
From London - London Heathrow (LHR)
To Vienna - Schwechat International (VIE)

I cannot remember well if it was row 28 but it was just by toilet door. I didnt like that configuration. They might not have it now.......I dont like BA at all. The colors are too strong for me. I dont like liveries including national flags......it is tasteless. BA staff is generally very pretentious, always pretending to be super helpfull and nice but it is only pretending. BA planes taxi times in LHR (as an example) are just a joke.........Delays in LHR are super common, congestion is horrible. Many BA passengers (particularly LHR) are really aggresive and rude, and planes look always dirty. Passengers drinking a lot, walking without any shoes, newspapers all over the plane. Rubbish on the floor........I have only seen repeatedly ground or cabin crew calling police on the ground or on arrival at a destination to the police as there were really aggresive out of control situations with passengers. I would not recommend to fly BA for potentially passenger related aggresiveness uncomfortable situations. ( I have seen so many.....)

Seat 2a
From Lisbon - Portela (LIS)
To Sao Paulo - Aeroporto Internacional Guarulhos (GRU)

Tap is a gem in Europe. 1.- I love Airbus planes and except some domestic peninsula flights with regional aircrafts, TAP relies solely on Airbus planes which are freally well take care off, painted in a beautiful livery, with an incredible staff, able to speak many languages (that's amazing) and a lovely real attitude, with an efficient service.
I have been in some bad weather situations landing in kind of difficult airports with tap and dont tell me why but a huge % of accasions we manage to land with no hesitation, being the crew calm and focused. (believe me!). I can tell TAP crews are probably the most efficient wortking under pressure.
A great reliable airline with great staff, nice fleet and a great service. One of my favourites in Europe. I love TAP, Iberia, Aegean, Brussels airlines, finnair or Austrian in opposition to big carriers such as BA, KLM or AirFrance. I love Easyjet too, as I find crews ans staff quite genuine. I really dislike staff overeacting, trying to be super super friendly, it is not neccessary and looks fake..........Whenever something goes wrong they show the opposite side appearing to become demons.......

Seat 4a
From Madrid - Barajas (MAD)
To Sao Paulo - Aeroporto Internacional Guarulhos (GRU)

Why do I love Iberia? 1.-It is really efficient. It's always been in the top ranking of most punctual airlines in the world and I can tell ground and cabin staff work really hard for an on time departure. I really like Iberia staff attitude. They do not overeact with fake smiles and silly ultra polite answers. They dont do it. They show themselves as they are, humans trying to do their job the best they can. I really hate some airlines forcing their staff to pretend they are the happiest people in the world only because they are in love with all of their customers, no matter their attitude.
I love the interior colour simplicity of Iberia which is really minimal.
it is by far, one of the most experienced airlines flying transatlantic to latin america and the best option if you are connecting in madrid efficient and modern airport, which is by far my favourite big airport in Europe, particularly T4 and T4s.
DEparting from T4s (non schengen destinations terminal) couldnt be easier, plane taxi time to 2 dedicated runaways is really short, taking no more than 5 minutes in may occassions which is amazing for an airport of this size.
I love iberia long haul business class layout. You dont need to disturb your next seat traveler to access your window seat under no circunstances. Basically 4 individual seats, 2 each side with independent access, and 2 central ones with independent access for a group of two.
