Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"

Cons: "Provide power outlets at seats. The remote control provided at the seat isn't at all user-friendly. I finally figured it out, but more people than not would have trouble using it. Also, basic features like turning on/off the reading light or calling a flight attendant shouldn't be on this complicated remote. Finally, the seating in economy plus or whatever this class is called needs to be rethought. (aircraft: Boeing 787)"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."

Cons: "Missed our connection because of problem w jetway"

Pros: "Nothing British airways was fine"
Cons: "Your website messed up and booked my flight for the wrong month. I booked sept 20 2019 and your site errored out. Eventually it booked the flight but apparently it was for oct 20, 2019 and I couldn’t get a refund because it was through kayak not British airways. I’m never using kayak ever again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "It took 3 people to check my bag something was wrong with the system ... the airplane was super hot for first half hour or so because there was a problem with air conditioner."

Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."

Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."

Pros: "The in flight services met my expectations."
Cons: "We were informed at the Nairobi check in that our tickets had been suspended because of possible risk of fraud. Attempts to resolve this promptly were not successful. For a first time traveler to the UK, this created unnecessary anxiety and gave us the feeling that the agency appointed to check us in are not supportive. We were eventually sorted but this is not nice at all given the fact that payments went through and tickets were issued and no one informed us of any issues until we got to the airport. Some feedback would be appreciated."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"

Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."

Pros: "All of it we left and landed ahead of time"

Cons: "Delayed, had to pay for beverages, tight seating"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Couldnt pick seat after checkin. They put me in the middle in the back row even though there were better seats left empty right next to me. baggage would have cost 100 pounds to check. Flight was not exactly cheap at 200 pounds. Will just fly the budget airline next time over british air since. I expect better accomodation for these prices."

Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Pros: "I always fly AA but this time was a nightmare"
Cons: "The gate agents put me on a wild goose chase as they made an error on the time of my flight departing. My wife and I were sent to three gates and finally was apologized to by the manager on duty. Our flights were changed for free put we lost 5 hours of travel. My wife started IVF treatment today... and she was uanbale to sleep before her 7am appt ( got home at 3am) Very stressful!!!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and smooth."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks. And a stewardess had no idea which countries’ passengers needed to fill out a travel card for UK. I wasted all that time only to find out I did not have to."

Pros: "Helpful and courteous crew"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"

Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"

Cons: "Mixed up boarding arrangements, length of time to disembark, being coached to the terminal. ok these add up as stress for business travelers on a deadline for meetings"

Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"

Pros: "On time and easy."
Cons: "BA have stopped giving free snacks and drinks which was always refreshing and different to other airlines! It set them apart but it's just back to another airline now!"

Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."

Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."

Pros: "Excellent staff Clean bathrooms"

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I was randomly picked and searched before boarding the plane because I wasn't a white person. The flight was shaky as hell too."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"

Pros: "The service was great, plane was clean, entertainment was great, food was OK but not great."
Cons: "In economy the seat spacing was very limited. It was worse than many US domestic flights. If the seat in front was reclined, the TV screen was about 12-15 inches from your face."

Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"

Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "British Airways misplaced our luggage for three days, and would give us no further information than "it will arrive soon." So, we were stuck near the local address we had provided in case they called for 2 full days. They refused to give us a more precise time as to when they would be delivered. Well, at one point they did say that they would be delivered at noon, but they weren't. Throughout the entire time waiting for the luggage to be delivered, there was no sense of urgency or concern on the part of British Airways. It seems missing luggage is just Business as Usual at British Airways."

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Cons: "No food not even snacks were served"

Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Late departure and inefficient gate service. Seats very uncomfortable. Food was inedible. Otherwise, had a great time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no complimentary water and coffee and more."

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"

Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
