Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.
On my flight from Cape Town to London I was not notified that the flight had changed and missed the flight. British Airways would not help with a different flight and basically said I need to buy another ticket and fight for a refund. I need to speak with someone to get this resolved and reimbursed for the additional ticket I had to buy along with extra COVID tests I had to take, not to mention additional hotel stay and missed income from work. Please contact me as soon as possible.
It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket.
My initial flight was cancelled without any warning. I found it out on the BA website and not on Kayak's. The whole trip was moved 2 days that created some inconveniences.
Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"
Cons: "Even a small coffee/tea service would be a nice addition."
Pros: "Left early, arrived early."
Cons: "Get rid of M&S and go back to including a G&T with the ticket."
Cons: "No assistance to mothers with strollers. While boarding, picked a few people randomly to inspect our bags right before getting on a plane. Held us in a separate room including me who is single mother traveled with 2 year old for 3 flights in the row. My son didnt get his meal. Also had to ask for any juice. Horrible menu. Late food serving, but quick to clean up in a rash. Loud people on phones and nobody stopped them. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "With 2h30 hours delayed flight I missed my train and had to have a hotel Arcturus airport in Amsterdam and continue my journey only the day after."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Pros: "Friendly crew, new release films"
Cons: "Quicker boarding and better food"
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, very poor entertainment systems, screens too small and kept needing to be reset."
Cons: "Poor entertainment systems Plane too cold Only 1 meal Ran out of gin for the second flight in a row"
Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"
Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have been offered a glass of water."
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "I did like how efficiently the transfer was handled to the other plane, and I did like that we got a five pound voucher to get something to eat."
Cons: "I didn't like that, having boarded, and waiting for half hour, we had to leave the plane due to some electrical issue, and had to get another plane, which delayed our trip by three hours. I feel something like that should have been noticed before we boarded."
Pros: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"
Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The service was bad"
Pros: "flight cancelled"
Cons: "flight cancelled because of fog,........ there was no fog"
Pros: "Minor fault identified and notified to passengers prior to take-off, and dealt with immediately. Crew excellent"
Cons: "Cramped seating, the feel of a budget airline now in economy, with seat choice, refreshments and stowed baggage all ‘extra’"
Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."
Pros: "The journey was not that long as expected"

Pros: "Prop plane but on time with professional staff"
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "I made it to Paris and I guess that's what's important"
Cons: "You could offer small bottles of water as a courtesy Flight Attendants are definitely rude. Not to me, but I watched them interact with other passengers and they are just baseline.. rude."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
