Boarding was super slow and congested at the finger; food is just water and a snack for 200 euros flight ticket; no finger at arrival so 20 minutes waiting in London
Cons: "The breakfast scone was disgusting but dinner was great!"
Pros: "Crew were good early on but didn’t check later on"
Cons: "It was ridiculously hot and the crew didn’t offer water after initial drinks run and we were seriously dehydrated. The flight was delayed and although the first half an hour we had excellent service there was no follow up service and the temperature in the plane was really very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Free Wifi"
Cons: "Free Wifi all over the flight"
Cons: "The entertainment system broke down and the flight attendants seemed sassy"
Cons: "Our reservation on the initial flight have been cancelled. We had to take the next day flight. British Airways and American Airlines accused the other to be responsible so it took us 4 hours at the counter -with our 5 and 3 years old- to be rebooked and we payed the hotel night!"
Cons: "Having gate #earlier than 1 hour before takeoff"
Pros: "Very comfy leather seats like business class"
Cons: "No free food, snacks"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour out of Denver and then 4 hours delay out of London to Lisbon. And, after that long delay they didn't even offer free water."
Pros: "Good crew; no more or less better seating than other airlines we have used to the UK."
Cons: "The food,."
Pros: "More legroom, better service, like hot towel before meals and snacking between meals, we were given breakfast at 8 in the morning at Hyderabad India, then after Suzan ahalf hour given a meal, there was no snacks given. When asked the crew said that we need to ask in the lobby"
Cons: "The long wait for food"
Cons: "Staff and crew were courteous and helpful. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The AA flight from NYC was late arriving at Heathrow, causing me to miss the connection. AA/BA was very good about orienting me to the new plan, but the delay was very inconvenient and being in the last row of the newly arranged flight to Lisbon was downright unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendance"
Cons: "The flight information did not show the gate for the flight. We had to ask an employee which gate was being used. Unfortunately, it was a gate that required a transit ride. As a result, many passengers were late in fact, after pushback, the pilot returned to the gate to pick up one very late passenger. Also, the BA gate attendant was very rude. Her imperious attitude was a poor reflection on her employer."
Cons: "Plane smelled bad. Had to pay for food. Not even water was included. Inside the plane is worn and needs upgrades."
Pros: "Kind crew helping a frightened passenger"
Cons: "Terrible, frightening turbulence and illogical birding. Why not bore back of plane to front of plane?"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The food service was very good. Entertainment choices were abundant and generally good."
Cons: "Reaching our connecting flight. The Bataan death march comes to mind—concourse 3 to 5, oh my! Having got through all the hurdles including incomprehensible up, down, up again down again escalator rides and security pat down for my wife we got to Concourse 5 where we learned our plane was leaving from C gates, but not which C gate. So we looked for directions to C gates. The only signage was for C gates 52 to 57. Common sense would lead one to believe that C gates 1 to 51 existed somewhere in the terminal; but no they do not and not many people are aware that they don’t. There has to be a better way. Perhaps before Brexit becomes a reality you could lean on Germany’s vaunted efficiency to help clean up this nightmare scenario."
Pros: "Crew are helpful, attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Seats in Business Class are just okay, not great, but are completely doable for short flights."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind"
Cons: "Charge you for even instant coffee, the alla cart way of doing things is taking over the industry. all about making more money"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Being charged more than $3 for a cup of tea!"
Cons: "No power outlets at seats."
Pros: "Flight good."
Cons: "Your website didn’t tell us bags not included. Cost me an extra£200 at airport. More than poor. Who do I complain to?"
Pros: "First international flight. In flight entertainment was fantastic, plenty of new movie titles to view along with music, all complimentary. Staff was hospitable and frequently came by to reduce lighting and offer food and refreshments. I’m about 6’3” so my only complaint was no room in the middle seat but otherwise it was ok. I made it work."
Cons: "Not enough room between the rows for me to adequately stretch my legs out."
Pros: "The crew was good , helpful and freindly"
Cons: "The food was not so good but okay"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I was randomly picked and searched before boarding the plane because I wasn't a white person. The flight was shaky as hell too."
Pros: "Very attentive, kind caring"
Cons: "First class had three seats, but the middle one was not used. I expected actual nice big seats, and a video system."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable... that's about it"
Cons: "Firstly at check in the BA staff could have mentioned the gate was miles away and there's a second passport control to get through... I have a 82 year old dad I was helping navigate around the airport. Secondly on the flight out and back they ran out of the M+S food they so proudly advertise in the menu on board... you have to pay for it which is fine... but I would have liked to have bought some! So the few people higher up in the rows had the opportunity... row 15 and lower didn't..."
Cons: "I was not allowed to check in online, so I had to go to the airport early to check in. Despite purchasing my flight months prior, and arriving at the airport with plenty of time to to check in, I was told that I was going to be bumped from my flight because it was overbooked, which would mean that I would miss my international connection. After waiting for everyone else to board on a tiny flight, there suddenly was a seat available and they let me board, but they managed to not put my bag on the flight, which means I have no luggage. Lastly, despite checking in more than 7 hours ahead of time for the international flight, I was given a middle seat and was told that I would have to pay $40 if I wanted to switch to an aisle/window. The middle seat was cramped and uncomfortable, particularly for 8 hours (after 7 hours of connections and waiting in airports). UGH."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and professional, accommodating and very attentive. The seats were comfortable and the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "The food was not particularly good, I imagine a better class of ticket would improve the food experience. Then again, one does not fly for the food!"
Cons: "The crew didn't even offer me a drink or food for purchase The baggage allowance fees were ridiculous -- I hate to pay despite being executive status and when I called several times prior to flight there were not helpful and referred me to airport who charged me a lot of $$! I willl be writing a note to customer service. In addition they are cutting back I was told and closed the ticket counter in Faeo Portugal -- not flying them again"
Pros: "full flight but well staffed and attentive. Great entertainment options."
Pros: "The customer service representatives are very apologetic and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of punctuality. For any flight through British Airways, do not expect to be on time. Both flights were delayed; significantly so that the group I was with ended up missing the connecting flight (that shockingly left on time)"
Cons: "They don't offer even water"
Pros: "The delay in the flight leaving an hour later."
Cons: "The Terminal chsnge. It would be appreciated if additional golf cart transport could be provided between terminals so folks could make connecting Flights."
Pros: "Flight crew did a nice job and seemed to enjoy what they do."
Cons: "When you book your ticket you should be able to choose your seat without having to pony up $35 to do it, I don't understand why you have to wait until you check -in 24 hours before your flight to get a "free" seat. Food was just okay. Seats not that comfortable."
Pros: "Crew is extraordinary kind and pleasant."
Cons: "Very little room, small seats"
Pros: "There weren't too many people on this flight so we were able to use the extra seat in our row. The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Missed the flight and the next flight was to expense had to take a train to my destination and pay $400 extra dollars. Was at airport and checked in 2 hours early sitting at what seemed to be the only London flight going out. Our flight was not listed on the computer monitors and we checked it several times. Our names were not announced over loud speaker and no one helped us to rebook."
Cons: "I arrived about 45 mins before the departure time and they refused to let my 85 year old sick dad in a wheel chair board. They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"
Pros: "Great flight, Schedule is very practical , comfortable"
Cons: "Check in personnel was very slow, and ironically telling people to hurry at the gate while taking very long time to deal with them at the check in counters. Not very helpful or polite when asked for extra luggage shipping."
Pros: "Really the only thing I've found that is good your staff on the flight it's self. The on board crew are very good. Everthing else pretty much makes it terrible."
Cons: "First off they quote you rate and you pay. Then you find out that you have to pay more just to request a seat. Complete move motivated by pure greed and manipulating us the consumer. Even more so if you don't go and request your seat 24hrs before the flight they automatically assign you the middle seat so they can go and sell the better window and aisle seats. This pretty much makes me want to never use your greedy airline again. Also when I was boarding I get stopped and told my carry on was to large. THE VERY SAME ONE I BROUGHT WITH ME. Why is it too big now? They really had no answer other than they told me I had to check it. The lady was verbally aggressive with me about it. After I was backing down only because I was afraid of losing my flight she then requested a CC saying I had to pay for it. I was literally pulling things out of my bag holding in my hand for my flight. She insisted I had to pay for it. I pointed out that my ticket included 2 bags to begin with and I only used one she said it doesn't matter because its to big for the plane I have to pay. I'm beyond furious now as I'm dropping stuff out of my hands trying to manage everything. I'd like to point out this is just a small gym bag and its a lot smaller than my carry on suite case which I'm frustrated. I'm pretty much pissed off the whole flight to only be more at the end. When the plane lands and I'm getting off I notice every single person has a carry on suite case all of which are much larger than my gym bag. My freaking gym bag fits in the tiny locker at the gym. I HATE BRITISH AIRLINES they only succeed at swindling money from you."
Pros: "I don't think there is anything more I could ask of an airline."
Cons: "At this point, there was nothing not to like."
