Airline reviews

Cons: "Provide power outlets at seats."

Pros: "Boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful. It was so hot I was fanning myself. I had a 11 hour flight and than a 10 hour flight after both British airways, and the same exact food. So I just went hungry. I smelled something amazing so thought I would get a good hot meal as my last meal since I had not had anything in 9hours, but nope, just got a measly cold sandwich. I won’t book British airlines again for international travel, I’ll stick to emirates."

Cons: "No WiFi."

Cons: "Some form of entertainment"

Cons: "Hardly saw a steward in business class the whole flight. Must be part of BA’s cost saving initiatives, but means you don’t get food on time, offered drinks or even a menu"

Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."

Cons: "For a major carrier in Europe we expected more. Be Be prepared to pay for food and even a drink on a domestic flight. Seats tiny barely any leg room. Crew members appeared to be having a bad day not many welcoming smiles. I guess if you had to budget just pay use one of the other carriers"

Pros: "I did not"

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

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."

Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."

Cons: "Lost my luggage"

Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"

Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."

Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Cons: "price"

Cons: "Late arrival from Helsinki caused issues. Transit from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 was problematic. Boarding from a bus is never a positive."

Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Quick boarding, good crew."
Cons: "Greasy food."

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

Pros: "I loved the new modern plane. It was a bit more comfortable and conveniently designed. Less like a cattle truck and more like a luxury bus."

Cons: "Unfortunately BA have turned into a budget airline experience at higher than budget airline prices."

Pros: "There was no flight"
Cons: "The flight did not take off. What little information we were goven was inaccurate. We called and were rebooked on another flight without being told it was overbooked and our tickets were standby . Dozens of other passengers had the same experience"

Cons: "no free dinks, including paid coffee, tea... I think it's ok. to pay for drinks, but not regular coffee, tea and water even it's short flight"

Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"

Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."

Pros: "Lots of delays due to technical problems with the plan. Had to be moved onto another plane. More than 3 hour delay."

Pros: "Exceptional attentive staff! Frequently checked on you to see if you needed anything. Trans-Atlantic service is amazing."
Cons: "Liked everything but could have a better classic movie choice."

Pros: "Hostess was very nice, helpful and friendly. entertainment was ok and pilot was very informative on delays and info. I think the comic relief video is a keeper. People tend to watch just to see the characters and reactions"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, really squashed, no space for 2 arms on the arm rests and leg room is rubbish. Food is wasn't bad.. could do with more on the trays, seems there have been some budget cuts. Continental breakfast option would be really nice."

Pros: "The meals were reasonably nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were old and not clear and not easy to use. The crew was not efficient, not very friendly and not very accommodating. They offered minimal service, contrary to another crew on the A380 flight with BA going from LHR to JNB. Between flights, I guess I saw the better and the worse of BA."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."

Cons: "Horrible plane. Sounded like it was on its last legs."

Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."

Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"

Pros: "great entertainment, crew, and enough bathrooms! Served drinks often and the food was quite good!"
Cons: "Like all airlines, very small seats in economy"

Pros: "We boarded almost 1hr early, took off on time and landed just before scheduled."

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

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."

Cons: "Boarded flight only to be unboarded at midnight: got to hotel 4am. Long delay in check in/appallingly disorganized. No communication from BA as to problem or when flight would go. Next day checked out of hotel and taken back to airport only to find flight not going as problem not fixed. Passengers taken back to hotel and checked in again! All this time, no official communication from BA. No attempt to reroute elderly passengers or those with small children. Very unimpressed"

Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"

Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."

Cons: "I HAVE FLOWN OFTEN ON OTHER AIRLINES & IT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO FIND OUT THAT BRITISH AIRWAYS ONLY ALLOWED ONE FREE CHECKED BAG AND I HAD TO PAY $200 WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, $100 FOR THE 2ND BAG & $100 BECAUSE IT EXCEEDED 51 LBS"

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."

Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"

Pros: "The staff is always friendly and working at it to make everyone feel welcome and happy. Thanks for the great effort! we do appreciate it."
Cons: "Peppers in the food does not make the food taste nicer, it just adds a flavor that i think does not add great value for airport food. It is the same with raw onions. Once in a container everything tastes like the onions. This has been done away with and my personal opinion is that the same should be done to the peppers. When peppers are added to food, you only taste the peppers and not the rest of the flavors of the food. Hope you find this helpful. Thanks"
