Cons: "Did not give me hotel and waitting for 23 hours and didn't tell me that before"

Cons: "One of the cabin attendant was a bit rude."
Cons: "Asked for water 15 mins before landing and never received it"
Pros: "The complimentary alcohol and the comfort pack they give to passengers."
Cons: "The uncomfortable and narrow coach seat and the lack of leg room."
Cons: "In Doha, when changing flights, one must go through security at gate. so any water purchased IN airport was confiscated. not a problem since plenty available on board, but time consuming."
Cons: "Checking in was quite annoying because BA canceled our return and over the phone but we still had to transfer all our information upon checking. Boarding rather chaotic. Random searches were not organized. Seats were okay. Food just edible. Mostly the staff was polite and there was one attendant in coach who was very pleasant. Shoulder length blonde hair, she was genuine and cheerful. It was an okay flight, but my experience was more comfortable and the feeling of being dealt with as a person was more evident on my flight to London w BA. I appreciate that the flight went well but American Airlines still has a long way to go in customer genuine service and experience."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant and we landed early."
Cons: "British Airways should at least give out small bottles of water or cookies to soften passengers affinity towards the airline. I did not buy anytjing but was also not served anything. In comparison to low cost carriers, I felt underappreciated."
Pros: "Plane was new and good"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "great seats, friendly staff, quick boarding"
Cons: "free snacks"
Pros: "Good seats, friendly staff, quick boarding."
Cons: "free snacks"
Pros: "Only the speed of the flight. The seat was terrible! No pitch, no room, squeezed in like sardines. The crew spent most of their time hawking BA products. Embarrassing."
Cons: "More room! It was excruciating, and I am not a large person. The boarding process was chaotic and confused. Took a very long time. The only good part of the flight was that the pilot provided a smooth and quick (thankfully, because the rest was pretty miserable) time in the air. BA has become worse than Ryanair."
Pros: "Given that this flight, like just about every other BA9 flight for the past week, was a delayed departure, this flight delayed 3 hours, it is difficult to say that this was a good flight. The flight was full, and some business class passengers moved to economy class, with some economy passengers being removed from the flight to free up essential "rest areas" for the crew."
Cons: "Whilst I understand that the planes make no money sitting on the tarmac, maybe the schedule needs tweaking to permit a little more time for maintenance?"
Cons: "Service far exceed my expectations, seats were superior to anything I've every experience flying domestically in the US."
Cons: "Kayak.com overwrote the passenger name with an incorrect name. Neither Kayak.com or lastminute.com could correct this which resulted in me losing approx. £600 and taking the issue to the small claims court."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cleanliness Pockets in seat all in disarray with crumpled dirty pamphlets and magazines. Felt unsanitary"
Cons: "When we boarded the plane it was a bot chaotic, quite a few people were sitting in the wrong seats (including someone sitting in mine). There was also a delay in departing because of weather (which isnt the airlines fault) but maybe a complimentary bottle of water would have been nice."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Having to take a bus from the plane to the terminal. This would make me fly via Amsterdam to the US to avoid these connections"
Pros: "Attentive service by flight attendants"
Pros: "Short flight, uncrowded Embraer plane, easy check in at City airport and easy arrival at Prague."
Cons: "Late departure due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” - which seems to be the norm."
Pros: "We had a delay in boarding and the gate crew kept us updated every step of the way. BA remains my favorite to fly long-haul: even in coach, the seats are reasonably spaced and comfortable, the meals are tasty and filling, and the cabin temperature is consistent. Especially appreciate the wine with dinner, which always helps me sleep half the flight away!"
Cons: "The entertainment system on our plane failed in (according to the flight attendant) about half the rows, including mine. That didn't just mean spending 7 or 8 hours of a 10-hour flight unable to watch films, check the flight map, or charge my phone. It also meant that I couldn't call for a flight attendant or even turn on my overhead light, which was really inconvenient."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the schedule"
Cons: "Not even a free bottle od water included in price of the flight anymore."
Pros: "The movie selection was wonderful, as the amount of time with dim lightening"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane. It was too cold for summer clothing"
Cons: "BA lost my baggage on my flight over and I missed my conference as a result of it. On the way home I was late for my flight as a result of a flat tire and BA did not help me get on another flight they basically said good luck and purchase another flight."
Pros: "Boarding at the gate was quick and easy."
Cons: "Charge for Coke was USD$ 2. Did not advise Gate fpr LHR to Venice until45 minutes. Had more seating at the gate then the main terminal "A". It was in "B" gate."
Cons: "The staff would not accept cash for the food and drinks, I didn’t have any so had to stay thirsty"
Pros: "Short flight - it was fine"
Cons: "All fine for short flight"
Cons: "2 Hour Delay"
Pros: "Quiet flight lots or spare seats - good price. Food pretty good"
Cons: "Viewing sets stowed in front of rows old and not easy to move"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and dusty/worn. Food is below average. Lounge is the worst of all among all the London lounges. Food and beverage in business lounge is like a school cafeteria level."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Lost my bag. No idea where it was for 48 hours. Staff was ok. Ran out of meal options, took 4 asks to get a glass of wine and by the time I got it, I was done eating."
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment units often malfunction. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the customer service on board was pretty spectacular & very clean bathrooms."
Cons: "It was extremely warm throughout the flight and the seats weren’t too comfortable."
Cons: "Had a horrible time reserving a seat ( willing to pay) because the confirmation number changed and I was not informed. Took several calls to BA, a trip to the airport and an act of god to finally mange it. Was very stressful."
Pros: "I loved the side compartment next to my seat in the upper deck of the airbus. This was an amazing airplane to fly in and I hope someday to afford the opportunity to experience First class. The cabin crew was very attentive and our attendant, in particular, was helpful. He made sure that we had our special meal and the whole staff was very attentive."
Pros: "Everything was great! Good food and service. On time flight. No complaints!"
Pros: "I really liked how neat & professional the crew were dressed. The plane was new & the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that beverages (like water, juice, coffee) weren't complimentary. All the flights I've been on in the U.S. offer those for free, along with a small snack."
Pros: "Food and service were great!"
Cons: "Babies crying, hate flying with Babies! Guy behind me kept pulling and kicking my seat, pain in the aaa!"
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Indifferent inflight service is probably a compliment. The worst insult was to the 120 passengers whose flight to Heathrow was cancelled. They waited hours for the flight to Gatwick. On arrival BA announced that the buses that were promised by ground staff in Venice had not been arranged because BA didn't have the resources at hand. Useless as usual!"
Pros: "Felt room in spite of being in coach. Friendly flight attendants."
Pros: "On time performance"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat haphazard with some confusion over who was being called at what time"
Pros: "On time quick boarding and away"
Cons: "Early request of seat not taken in consideration. One week In advance request"
Pros: "Crew were busy to make us more comfortable during the long trip, always smile. Food is better than I thought."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "Many entertainment options, food was tasty."
Cons: "Movie options were not new releases"
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable and food is terrible."
Pros: "Nothing special at al!"
Cons: "International flights never charge baggage fees for 2nd bag. Older aircraft. Mediacore friendly by the crew. They cancelled my return flight cost me lots of head aches and money!"
Pros: "Entrees were OK"
Cons: "Not nearly enough snacks. They were pretty much out in business class half way through the flight"
Pros: "All great"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time, although flight was fully booked, boarding was quick."
Cons: "Nothing, flights to Frankfurt have always gone off on time for me."
Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people on the prior flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."
Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "I waited 30min at the priority check in queue while being first in line this whole time. There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."
Pros: "I used to think that British Airways was one of the classier emails. Unfortunately, they have become thoroughly mediocre. The meal was one of the very worst I've ever had on an airplane, entertainment system antiquated, no email, poor ventilation with no individual air outlet. Heathrow is an airport to be avoided if at all possible."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Because it was short flight there was no food so I can't judge on the food"
