Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.
On my flight from Cape Town to London I was not notified that the flight had changed and missed the flight. British Airways would not help with a different flight and basically said I need to buy another ticket and fight for a refund. I need to speak with someone to get this resolved and reimbursed for the additional ticket I had to buy along with extra COVID tests I had to take, not to mention additional hotel stay and missed income from work. Please contact me as soon as possible.
Staff very friendly and attentive. Boarding and landing all went really smoothly.
It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket.
Not happy with kayak Flight was canceled. I was supposedly rebooked per kayak At the airport I was not even in the system Also I paid for premium economy but was placed on economy Never again kayak
Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"
Cons: "No assistance to mothers with strollers. While boarding, picked a few people randomly to inspect our bags right before getting on a plane. Held us in a separate room including me who is single mother traveled with 2 year old for 3 flights in the row. My son didnt get his meal. Also had to ask for any juice. Horrible menu. Late food serving, but quick to clean up in a rash. Loud people on phones and nobody stopped them. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "Crew was the friendliest I have met in a long time."
Cons: "Connecting in London too stressful and difficult. I came from Catania enroute to JFK and practically killed myself in Gatwick getting from one flight to another. 2 hours not enough to go through this airport, with its stairs, the "mall," lack of info about what to do, passport & sec check again."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Pros: "Friendly crew, new release films"
Cons: "Quicker boarding and better food"
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, very poor entertainment systems, screens too small and kept needing to be reset."
Cons: "Poor entertainment systems Plane too cold Only 1 meal Ran out of gin for the second flight in a row"
Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"
Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "Oneworld status points"
Cons: "The price, the cancellation of the flight, the lack of free tea, the lack of baggage allowance."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Because of technical difficulties, we had to get off the plane after having boarded so it left with 1h30 delay. That can happen to everyone though but that's not it. On the plane, after having paid for specific seats, the entertainment system did not work as well as the individual lights despite the crew knowing about it. When we notified them, all they said was "Oh! Someone should've told you. Sorry." The one in charge of the crew offered us champagne but never came back with it. So with my girlfriend, we spent 8 hours from London to NYC in darkness with no entertainment despite having paid for it. Finally, I've been trying to get in touch with customer service for 3 weeks now and I still haven't gotten a hold of anyone."
Cons: "Being charged for everything! Even a coke....really! Couldn't reserve a seat until 24 hrs. without paying extra ."
Pros: "We had a horrible experience with BA customer service located somewhere....in the world! Couldn't even communicate in Eng...."
Cons: "Poor, very poor customer service, over the phone. On flight things were ok."
Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."
Cons: "Flight was changed and I had to wait 8 hours for the connection."
Cons: "I could not chose the seats ahead of time, for reasons that I still don't know, and I wound up being seated several rows away from my young son."
Pros: "Pilot friendly chat at gate"
Cons: "2 hours to offer food through the plane Slow inefficient payment process Bacon roll served with cold Centre - inadequately cooked after 2 attempts"
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "The staff very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We missed two flights,made it on the third trip.when trying to get some help and information I felt like they were blowing us off ( employees at the airport in Paris) not so much British Airways.The first time we missed the flight it was because we were sent to the wrong gate,and we tried to get information we were told to sit down our plane would be next.We then had to start the process all over again going thru check in and security, proses was so slow we missed the second flight,then I had to go thru the process anion retrieving our bags,going thru check in and security the third time,by the time I got to the gate they were boarding. It was a nightmare and I got to feeling we would never get out of Paris.Not so sure I would want to go to Paris Airport again.? If I would use BA."
Pros: "Need full quality service!"
Cons: "Limited service!"
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
