Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were tight"
Read more about British Airways
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were tight"
Pros: "The crew was mediocre, nothing special. I asked for a extra pillow and was denied. Seats were cramped, I expected more from British Airways but comparing them to China Eastern, I found China Eastern more memorable."
Cons: "I expected more from British Airlines, maybe my expectations and reality didn’t chive?"
Pros: "Updates on status via email and sms"
Cons: "Choices not AWS international, too UK centric, Crew was superficial and curt"
Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."
Pros: "Moving to window seat appreciated"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Did not realize I purchased a “no checked bag” fare - and the $60 each way charge really pissed me off, along with the &48 charge to guarantee a window seat again, each way. The site was misleading, and I resent being peneluzed for trying to be efficient. A two week work trip needs to include a checked bag."
Cons: "For a new plane, seats are very cramped. If you drop an earpiece on the floor, you pull a muscle to retrieve it / or make. Everyone in your row stand up. Decent movies mean a box under the seat cuts into legroom. A cramped, miserable 7 hours for this 6’0 tall American. Staff was as helpful as they could be, but my knees still hurt."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable"
Cons: "No complementary water on Baird."
Pros: "Staff."
Cons: "No USB connection."
Cons: "The guy seated next to me was too big for his seat and he took up about 20% of my seat. Absolutely disgusting. My seat should have cost 20% less because I did not have access to my full space. Crew should be trained to not allow customers who cannot fit into a single seat to only have a ticket for one seat. The crew identifies bags that do not fit, they should do the same thing with people."
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "We didn’t make the flight from London to Rome because of flight delays. there was a huge time delay with our plane sitting on at the terminal and unable to de-board due to scheduling errors. This delay prevented us from making our connection to our next flight and now we are staying in a mediocre hotel for the night and have to wake super early and miss a day of fun at our final desitination. In general I would just move on, but we heard the customer service agent reference that they over booked the two flights to Rome. I guess we were the u lucky customers x two flights because we didn’t get a standby seat in the next flight then the prior agent gave us positive hope that we would get on. Lesson- make sure you have at least 3 hours between connecting flights."
Cons: "Hearing that we were booked on an overbooked flight."
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Pros: "Our flight was changed to Iberia from Madrid to NY"
Cons: "A one hour connection in london heathrow is near to impossible. I lost my connection i was suppose to be in madrid at 11am and it was suppose to be a 10-11 hours of travel. I wont make it to madrid until 6pm incremeting my travel time to a total of 24 hours for this reason it was and is a POOR and mediocre flight!"
Pros: "Nice new plane. Spacey."
Cons: "Ba.com app is flaky. Looks like s/w not tested properly"
Pros: "The Crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "It was a little cramped for space for my legs and I am not very tall."
Pros: "BA recognizes benefits earned with AA (OneWprld alliance). Boarding was quick and get to use the launch to freshen up before the trip."
Cons: "Crew was not polite; food was terrible and seat was awful (no space, poor quality entertainment screen and no space for legs)"
Pros: "The crew of British airlines were nice"
Cons: "Changed flight , couldn’t check in. I bought ticked on kayak but vayama was the actual ticket seller on behalf of Iberia which is a British airlines company. I couldn’t check and and customer service of vayama didn’t want to help and asked me to call Iberia. I called Iberia and after staying on hold for 40 min they told me to use the same confirmation number of Iberia flight on British airlines website. After a long day and a long and expensive uber ride I made it to sfo to see the flight has been delayed... never ever ever going to buy an international flight from Iberia, and very hesitant about kayak redirecting sales."
Pros: "Crew in board was great"
Cons: "Representative at gate was rude reminding me I was late when we had to wait on bus for others."
Pros: "The entertainment was great. The food was enjoyable and happy to see they offer vegetarian choices. Overall great experience."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "There wasn´´t any entertainment.. My ticket said I would gey a meal but I didn´t."
Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"
Pros: "Everything. Professional staff."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Food was dry for dinner and not very tasty. Breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "I did not use the entertainment. The crew was refreshingly professonial, helpful, and cheerful [in a British way]."
Cons: "I'm tall and the budget seat was 'tight'. But it was to be expecdted."
Pros: "The price of the flight offers is what made me purchase through kayak, but the disconnect with the airline and booking agency left me stranded and ultimately required me to buy a flight directly that will take me almost half a year to pay off not to mention the inconvenience of switching airports and sleeping on a bench for 4hrs."
Cons: "When I missed my flight, the airline would not offer assistance because I booked through an online vendor (webjet through kayak) and when I called webjet they failed to help me rebook, made me buy a new flight, then when I called looking for the flight information, they managed to cancel the flight and then claimed I had requested this when I had done no such thing. On top of this they only offer next calendar day booking so even though they are fully responsible for botching up the second flight I booked. I have talked to 10 individuals from different agencies. Everyone passes blame and responsibility off on someone else. On top of everything else, noone but the American Airlines representatives showed any empathy or concern for my being stranded for the night. Based on this experience, I will do everything in my power to dissuade people from using Kayak, webjet, amadeus and British Airways."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Large seats, fast service."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Movie choices were great."
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal well before day of flight. They said they did not have my order. Thankfully there were still vegetarian options (and I was at back of plane)."
Cons: "My flight out of Houston was cancelled because of a hurricane and a week later I'm still begging Web Jet for a refund. I'm supposed to wait another week for them to get back to me."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"
Pros: "Very cold but otherwise wonderful! Friendly, calm crew. Well done."
Pros: "Flying in 787 is always a joy. Quiet; great movie and music selection; nice contemporary user interface."
Cons: "The seat legroom was not the worst I had but sleeping in the chair was somehow very hard. I think the seat needed a little more backward inclination. There was a headrest, which was a good idea but didn't work out as expected."
Pros: "Chair rolm"
Cons: "No fee food"
Pros: "Movie selection was great!"
Cons: "Short staffed. No coffee with breakfast! Cream and sugar on tray. Flight from London to Stockholm delayed one hour due to air traffic!"
Pros: "Comfort. Entertainment. Service. Comfort. Did i mention it was comfortable? Also dark. Very dark. Which is exactly what you need on a long flight. Food was also exceptionally good for an airline. The bathrooms were also clean and had nice sinks."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight"
Pros: "we got a 787 dreamliner, the coach seats had good space between rows, so we had enough legroom. food - dinner - was tasty, and breakfast was plain but was completely OK. entertainment was excellent, lots of new movies, and also older movies and TV programs. crew was courteous and very helpful, and boarding was quick and smooth. all in all, a very positive experience."
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "nice modern electronics"
Cons: "breakfast high in calories but very low in pleasure"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "As like always late"
Pros: "Good service friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Cons: "Nasty food! Frozen solid salad."
Pros: "Timely departure; early arrival. Customer service oriented crew. Due to an oversight on the crews' part (turbulence during distribution of meals), my neighbor and I were not provided meals. When they eventually discovered their oversight and our choice of meal was no longer available, they provided us with meals from first class. Applaud owning a mistake and fixing it."
Cons: "Chair configuration is appalling. Paid extra to sit in exit row of standard economy, seat 30J (middle seat). Leg room was ample, seat width was adequate (for someone of small stature) but separation from neighboring seats was non-existent. My neighbors on either side were both plus-sized. I had nowhere to place my arms and effectively had to sit with my arms folded from SJC to LHR. Room for improvement."
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Pros: "good connection, regardless a small delay I made my connection"
Cons: "Online check-in was not possible, neither on ba.com nor on aer lingus (flight was operated by aer lingus). I had not possibility to choose a seat. I called are lingus consumers services who said this was due to the fact, that I had a BA booking. At the airport I was told most seat were pre-reservered. There was no indication during the booking process that this might be the case. The plane was rather small, with litte space. I am rather small person and had difficulties."
Pros: "Smooth flight, no hassles from start to finish. Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The seats could not have been any narrower. Vegetarian meal was ok."
Pros: "I did not enjoy at all that some of the middle rows (3 seats) were either empty or had only one seat occupied, while the front sections were occupied with 3 passengers!!! Dont they have computer programs that should sort that out?"
