This was a terrible experience. British Airways contacted my wife in a panic since they thought I did not board my flight. I was already in my seat and they contacted my wife who was my emergency contact instead of me. Could a customer service representative please contact me to discuss reimbursement at 267-614-6444

Heath row is a security nightmare. One of the worst, and most unwelcoming that I have experienced.

Checking and personnel good. One of the meals was bad and nothing was served served for almost 8 hours. Cabin staff made a lot of noise, hard to sleep.

Unhelpful and unwilling to help with connections

BA insistence on travelers using Verifly to speed check penalizes travelers who are unwilling to download yet another app. Poor communication about alternatives (i.e. downloading U.S. personal attestation prior to airport arrival produces chaos at airport for travelers not familiar with QCR codes. Missed connection in London resulted in lost baggage at New York with no communication from BA regarding still lost bags.

Was not a fan of Iberia. Am still not a fan. In Premium Econ, food came before drink. Not right. Food was below average. Tough to get 2nd glass of wine from JFK to Madrid. Crew asked me to use Econ toilet, nearly impossible given a broken ankle. My cane & ankle brace were clearly visible. Biz Class toilet was 2 rows from my seat; they finally acquiesced. Though the flight landed early, wheelchair never arrived—a perfect connection to Porto was shot. Forced to wait 4 hrs for next flight.

Anyways on time and excellent service

The seats were comfortable in the extra legroom over wing seats, but after being told that BA are bringing back food and drink on short haul I thought we would get a better option than a nutrigrain bar and small water bottle. Crew we’re very good though and professional.

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "Nothing. I was offloaded minutes before boarding by BA without any explanations. The staff was not helpful in any way. BA is suggesting either non recept of payment or credit card fraud. Both reasons are totally bogus."
Cons: "Proper communication by both BA and local handlers at the airport in Iceland."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful. Made sure I was comfortable."
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!!"
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: "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: "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: "I liked that the seats were very comfortable and had enough space."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to go through security twice once upon arrival and once in London. i also wish I would have booked a different airline so I could have had a direct flight. That wasn’t a problem with this airline though, just my negligence with research."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Heathrow’s use of buses to move passengers around is ridiculous for a modern airport. No water offered on flight exacerbated by dehydration from previous flight. All refreshments for a fee. I will not fly BA again if there is an alternative."
Pros: "Very special kind flight attendant went out of her way to help us catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Bumped from flight although booked months in advance. Completely screwed up connecting flight as a result. Polite but inflexible."
Cons: "The food service had problems. When they got to our row they didn't have any more of our dinners left and without asking I was given a meal from first class with an entree I did not care for. My wife seated next to me gave me half of her entree. Then the snack towards the end of the flight I was given a burrito type thing without asking what flavor I wanted. All in all the food was poor and the attention to the passenger was poor also."
Pros: "Good size seats"
Cons: "The crew were rude and dismissive"
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "It got me where I needed to be with a reasonable seat. I got a arrival card from the flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process was not very clear because we were away for the first announcement and then no more details were provided that we heard, so we just got in line. It seemed like nothing was free on board, including water but I could be wrong. If there was free stuff, it was not clear, which is annoying. They gave me an arrival card, but no pen or pencil or anything to write with."
Cons: "The plane was actually about to fly off when it suddenly skidded to a stop. We weren't informed about the reason, but all of a sudden, the plane couldn't take off for over two hours. My family and I ended up missing our connecting flight home. BA tried compensating with food vouchers and rebooking us onto another flight, but our family got split up in the process and we were all assigned to different middle seats."
Pros: "Nice crew"
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"
Pros: "The prompt take off and landing..."
Cons: "Nothing"
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?"
Cons: "This was in coach class, so I understand the cramped quarters, but even on a long haul flight (BA 49, LHR-SEA), how could they justify the seating in the planes? Perhaps BA executives should fly coach class on one of these planes to understand what they are putting their customers up to. Here are 2 additional items that should be a no-brainer to fix: a) They ran out of fresh bottled water. For the last one hour, all they could offer was sparkling water b) Somehow BA seem to be saving on food portions (or their caterer needs to be changed) - lunch/dinner portions are way too small."
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."
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: "Flight attendants were to top in the industry. Caring and caring. They are the face of your airline. Give them the right tools, they function well. I could not have been treated better as a Frequent traveler."
Cons: "Reservation process online does not show you that you are buying a bullshit Business Class seat. You pay a premium for Business class and granted, the meal was great, something the Coach class did not get BUT they should tell you when booking that that you are sitting in coach with a table blocking the middle seat, not truly a Business class seat. Dumb down your operations but don't insult your customers. Tell them what they are getting when booking a bus type business class seat. Worst business practice ever, driven by European style of travel BUT call it premium economy, not BUSINESS."
Pros: "Safe on almost on time trip"
Cons: "Checking in at Reykjavic was slow and crowded"
Pros: "I really liked that the crew were friendly, information was clearly communicated and process smooth."
Cons: "For a long flight the seats weren't that comfy and if it's an overnight I would suggest they let you know when food is coming or lights out so you can plan. Also, just a suggestion but I would prefer to pay less and not have the entertainment stuff or just use a BA app on my phone."
Pros: "Seating was roomier and much more comfortable. More leg room."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks."
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
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"
Pros: "The food was amazing actually. The seats were the most comfortable I've ever had and he entertainment choices were endless. The flight attendants took our requests graciously and were always helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Needs more airflow!!!! It got stuffy and warm."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Minimal meal service for a tras atlantic flight"
Pros: "Crew on BA0229 was terrific and attentive the entire flight."
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"
