It cost $129.70 for taxi , but have only been reimbursed $64.26 even though told at the counter that we would be reimbursed in full."
Cons: "Took about a month to book an infant ticket, then was issued a ticket with a wrong name, which then took another 3 weeks to be amended. When checking in, the agent told me that my daughter's ticket was not linked to anyone and looked like she was flying solo even though I mentioned to 5 different customer service agents that I would like to add her to my itinerary. Just when I thought it couldn't be worse, captain announced that they were having trouble with the AC for my part of the plane, meaning 7 hour flight was hotter than 80 degrees. I should also mention that trash was not collected until breakfast service."
Pros: "Nothing This is not what i wanted on an international flight ."
Cons: "i Had arrived early and was seated properly... however they held the plane over one hour delay to help late passengers ... this made problems with the connection flight .. they sent us to the wrong terrmknall and lost our luggage.. I feel like this was planned so they could sell out seats at a higher price last minute Fix all the above Call me to make this right"

Cons: "a bit crammed."
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Cons: "Missed the connection"
Pros: "Plane had to be de-iced which delayed departure time and then wait for landing slot."
Cons: "Heathrow need to build more capacity to reduce emissions and delays."
Cons: "This is by far the worst business class experience ever. Really bad. Never seen business seat so tight. 2x4x2 configuration in business is just not acceptable."
Pros: "More modern plane."
Cons: "No snacks, no food, 1 drink. Aegaen airlines gave good from Spain to Athens and back, for a lot less ticket flight."
Cons: "I arrived at British Air check in 6:30am. Flight was for 7:35am. They told me I was too late for check in and there's nothing I can do but pay more for the next flight. The lady was also very cold and careless in her attitude towards me. Anyways, this is a case of BA giving my seat away and then lying to me by saying I'm too late for check in. NEVER have I been told "too late to check in" an HOUR BEFORE SCHEDULED FLIGHT! I want A FULL REFUND! This is Bullshit."
Pros: "overall the flight was smooth. they had a video about collecting leftover coins, but but no one came by to collect, and no information as to where to leave your donation, so i just took my envelope and euros with me. price is the only reason I flew British airways again. If I could afford a better ticket I would fly a better airline."
Cons: "the armrest between the seats did not go up all the way. the storage area next to the window seat was dirty on the inside with food crumbs. after the recent news about bed bugs, i was uneasy on the flight. the actual flight was smooth, some turbulence but not the worst. they have absolutely the worst food ever. i have no idea what the awful purple stuff is, but they really should get rid of it. it is really unappetizing by the look of it. the carpet was coming loose in a number of places, just in our seat area. how long would it take to put some tacks in, or even some tape? bathroom was nasty and the sink was clogged.and full of water"
Cons: "I dentertaintmentid not like the two hour delay. No snacks and no"
Pros: "Premium Economy seats LHR-SAN. Comfortable, decent food, nice variety of entertainment. This flight is the best way to get from San Diego to Europe."
Cons: "The TV portion of the entertainment system didn't work, but there were enough movies to keep me occupied for the 11 hours of the flight."
Pros: "The craft, the crew, the food was excellent"
Cons: "Ackward media control"
Pros: "Plane left and landed on time."
Pros: "Everyone is so nice with British Airways. The food is always a delight too. I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Cons: "It seems the economy seats get smaller and smaller, but the trip was great overall."
Pros: "Flew with partner Aer Lingus. Extremely comfortable, good food, good entertainment, great crew."
Pros: "Service was great - so polite and friendly. And the coffee was worth every penny."
Cons: "the luggage fee - Now I understand why the fare was so inexpensive! I'm an American and thus slow :-)"
Pros: "Switch to Qatar Airlines"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Pros: "The people were nice."
Pros: "There seemed to be more leg room then other international flights. They fed us 2 meals and a snack and kept bringing around juice and water."
Pros: "The crew and flight were as expected"
Cons: "BA caused our original flight on norwegian to be delayed, we subsequently missed our flight from London to Venice. BA wouldn't even credit the cost of the missed flight to the rebooked flight. Had to pay full freight for first class because coach was booked."
Cons: "Their own employees didn't know that the flight was delayed, though their app had sent out a notice, and they refused to let me go through security, having already given away my seat more than an hour before the flight actually left. Then they refused to admit responsibility and do anything to help except to continue to put us on standby on their own full flights, knowing we wouldn't be able to get on one of those flights for at least a few days. They did finally give us a hotel for just one night and that was only after we kept reminding them that this was all their fault."
Pros: "The ease of San Jose airport. The nice, new, clean airplane."
Cons: "Food could be better. Also they ran out of most of the choices. We were in business class and for the price you should be able to get your choice. I do see British Airways does offer a pre-flight meal selection and I would use this next time."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight, to make things worst, we had to wait 3 1/2 hours standing in line just to speak a British airways staff because many of the desks were empty and half the desks were catering to first class and business class passengers"
Pros: "Quick and easy!"
Pros: "Staff was very nice."
Cons: "I feel it is very cheap of the airline to charge for all food and beverages during the flight. A small snack and complimentary water/soda/juice would have gone a long way."
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic"
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of coffee and water."
Pros: "Crew and ground personnel extremely polite and helpful. Good entertainment selection. And there's room for everybody's carry-on! Comfortable airplane even on coach, besides the 2 sore points on the "don't like" pane."
Cons: "Airbus A380, so boarding and de-boarding took some time. Aircraft interiors are made per airline requirements, not simply by aircraft manufacturer. On an airplane that will always be use on long haul routes I won't expect the usual non-really-reclinable last row of seats. Moreover, the armrest does not disappear between seats when moved upwards, it goes up only 45 degrees. Quite a nuisance traveling with your s.o. or children if you want to lean on each other."
Cons: "Heathrow connection process almost caused me to miss my flight, despite having 2 hours between connections. Security officer at Heathrow was very unprofessional, and took a great pleasure in delaying my processing through the security line. Specifically, I did not remove a PHONE BATTERY CHARGER from my carry-on for screening, so he proceeded to dump out the whole backpack contents, and then purposefully was very slow about putting things back in one by one.As an active duty police officer I understand the need for security and follow all the regulations and instructions to the best of my abilities. However in this case the security officer went out of his way to make the process as slow as he could. Very bad, stressful experience traveling on BA with connection at Heathrow."
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "No drinks not even water without cost"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit chaotic. Announcement s needed to be clearer. Also all old movies on the IFE."
Cons: "Interior of aircraft was terrible. Seat back pouches and headrests torn. In need of a serious upgrade."
Pros: "Crew fabulous. Comfortable plane and seats."
Cons: "This leg was fine. Would give BA high marks"
Cons: "Then I could not catch my London-Chicago Flight, so they put me on a Barcelona Charlotte AA flight and then Charlotte Chicago flight, which I had to run through customs to catch. But may luggage didn't make it. Overall it was one of those terrible experiences"
