Airline reviews

Pros: "Premium class is good value on the A380 but not quite to par on the older 777s"

Cons: "Pre boarding at the gate was slightly chaotic"

Cons: "Rerouted thru LA and I have filled in all the challenges faced in previous review."

Pros: "Efficient well groomed staff, thoughtful amenities such as baby seat belts & toiletry kit containing toothbrushes. Palatable tasty cuisine."

Pros: "The best airline in the world!"

Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"

Pros: "Good service and crew."
Cons: "Seats were very very narrow."

Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"

Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Crew was nice and food was decent. The seats were also as comfortable as they can be when you’re in them for 11 hours. It was also kinda fun that they came around with ice cream (never had his before)"
Cons: "We had just a double seat but the center divide only went up half way, wouldn’t go all the way up. Since I was flying with my husband this was disappointing. They also didn’t make many beverage trips considering this was a 11 hour flight a little surprising since we had a 6 hour one that brought drinks more than this one. Also stingy on the drink size so it was disappointing to set less and then come around 1/2 as much."

Pros: "Wonderful crew and flight. A380 smooth and quiet"

Cons: "BA cited computer glitch in London. Flights were severely delayed. Fortunately my connection was rebooked. Just minus 6 hours of my time."

Pros: "Great!!!"

Pros: "flawless flight, pleasant captain, friendly crew, free drinks, better than average food, enough food, toilet rooms not crowded, entertainment as good as can be expected, charging stations, reclining seats to the extreme"
Cons: "music could have more variety. window shade jammed... could not close, light broken, impossible to extricate oneself from seats due to reclined seats in front."

Cons: "didn't know what meals would be offered, as they were not listed on itinerary, so I bought food too in the airport"

Pros: "Food, drinks, pillow, blanket, movie options."

Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."

Pros: "Six years ago, after a very bad experience with this airline, I swore never to use BA again. However, this year, because of my children, I found myself on this airline again and had a very positive experience. The flight was on time, luggage was transferred without a hitch, the food was excellent and in-flight entertainment had a great variety to choose from. The 747 provided a very steady flight experience. Personnel were reasonably helpful. Continue this kind of service - it will help you remain successful."

Pros: "Cabin crew polite and courteous"
Cons: "Boarding via bus to plane was an added hassle The cabin temperature throughout flight was uncomfortably cold On each trip I have made with BA ( 6 in last year USA to U.K. and Spain) lack of overhead luggage space is always an issue. I paid 65 pounds for an extra check-on small suitcase, yet I couldn’t even put a small holdall in overhead because others had whole suitcases in there. This needs to be re-evaluated!"

Cons: "Very big delay!!!"

Cons: "Boarding took an extremely long time because of added security measures that did not have prior warnings."

Cons: "seats are too small - but y'all know that!"

Pros: "Quickly loaded full, huge plane. Excellent demeanor from stewards. Seats very comfortable in econ class. Were as on time as they could be. Superfast deplaning. Couldn't be happier."
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Excellent staff Clean bathrooms"

Cons: "the only hard part was the boarding in London, very hard to hear the boarding directions. Kind of chaotic. BUT it all worked out"

Cons: "Legroom is extremely tight."

Pros: "aer lingus was good"

Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Not much space. Seats were too narow."

Pros: "Lots of movies, excellent quality."
Cons: "Very crowded, otherwise okay."

Cons: "The lady at the check in counter changed the seat I paid to reserve from the front to the back of the plane without informing me"

Pros: "The seat was nice and movies onboard were entertaining."
Cons: "No personal AC vents; one small "meal" in the first hour followed by one small snack of popcorn a few hours later on 11-hour flight made it seem longer."

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "Did not make it. We are still stuck."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The BA ticket counter did not open early enough with enough staff to get all passengers checked in time. As such, the plane was delayed and we missed this connecting flight. Other people were in the same boat. We had no chance to make our connection but others did. While the flight crew offered weak apologies advising they had no control, they made no effort to help connecting passengers in ways the could control. Such as asking all passengers to remain seated allowing connecting passengers off the plane first. Something I've seen done on many other airlines numerous times."

Pros: "Loved it all"
Cons: "no wifi"

Pros: "This was my first time on an Airbus A380 and I must say that I'm still in awe of how an aircraft this large can be so quiet and smooth, let alone get in the air. Boarding was smooth. Entertainment was great and the food (depending on what you got) was okay. The inflight crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Economy seats are very uncomfortable. I am 6'4 and there isn't that much space. It's even worse when you have a kid sitting in front with his seat reclined all the way back - so the little room I had to start with became even worse. Not to mention he kept rocking his chair back in forth, passed gas about 5 times, felt the need to stretch his arm behind him 3 times so his hand was blocking my screen. I really never got comfortable in my seat during the 11 hour flight. For a plane this large, i would of expected a little bit more comfort, especially when I felt it on AA 777"

Pros: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Cons: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."

Pros: "Airbus 380 - smooth and quiet"
Cons: "nothing it was good"

Pros: "Crew was great and very helpful."
Cons: "The air pressure in the cabin didn't seem right, feet were swollen more than other international flights I have taken."

Pros: "Great service from the whole crew"

Pros: "A very long flight but decent food, good entertainment and leg room surprisingly not bad"

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "-Crew was very attentive to the passenger who needed medical attention. -Captain spoke clearly and slowly. All crew members were very professional. -Cleaner and bigger WC rooms than most planes I've been on which is always a plus."
Cons: "-Food was mostly bland (e.g. vegetarian lasagna), overly seasoned (e.g. caramel/chocolate pudding dessert) or just not quite good (e.g. cole slaw). Lots of room for improvement here. Thank goodness I'd packed some snacks while we were still in Barcelona. -The earbuds wasn't very good in comparison to other in-flight earbuds I've used from other airlines. Sometimes staticky, noise cancellation was low, and wasn't as comfortable to wear."

Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The meals are very high in carbohydrates, much of which I and others cannot eat. Please provide healthier choices for all passengers such as fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese and nuts."

Pros: "The trip was comfortable and the crew were professional"
Cons: "I liked my experience. No dislike"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
