Unbelievable smooth boarding. My best experience ever with British Airway
The check in process was very slow. We arrived 3 hours prior de departure time and almost made it.
Everything was great. No complaints
Missed our connection due to delayed. Ended up with a replacement flight with connections getting us in really late and annoying..
FLight crew was friendly, efficient and informative!
Everything was on time and no problems
Plane was extremely hot. Our flight were pushed back and changed several times. This was too excessive for one trip. I don’t feel like the passengers were priority.
Cons: "Better customer services"
Cons: "The chairs could be better in economy"
Pros: "Flight was a little delayed, but not terribly so. Crew was friendly, airplane looked clean and fresh."
Cons: "Entertainment on the plane (American Airlines Airbus A321) didn’t exist, unless you had the AA app and purchased the WiFi plan from the airline. Only food offered was a breakfast cookie for economy passengers."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Pros: "We were given sandwiches and drinks when our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We boarded our flight and then told there are maintenance problems. Our flight was delayed 4 hours."
Cons: "delayed and lost luggage! thanks"
Cons: "To hot in the back of the plane"
Pros: "I liked everything"
Cons: "5 hour delay missed my connecting flight because of this neither airline offers a refund or anything since I booked them separately.... Now I have to spend more $$ and time thanks"
Pros: "Had pre assigned seats and American changed without saying anything."
Pros: "The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The ride was somewhat turbulent but nothing can be done for that"
Pros: "The service was excellent and the flight on time."
Cons: "The seats have been refurbished In the narrow size."
Pros: "The TV's on the back of the seats were nice."
Cons: "The threatening tone of the counter associates about last minute checking of your bags because they don't have enough space in the overhead cabins. Why offer everyone that option if they will force groups 7-9 to check them?"
Pros: "With my frequent flier status, I get some perks on American, but by using the Boeing 777 instead of the Airbus BA uses, we had comfortable coach seats, easy boarding and good entertainment."
Cons: "Food is still just okay, but after all, it's coach."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable!"
Cons: "It was late."
Pros: "Flight depart on time, with possible 5 minute delay. No problem at all."
Pros: "Individual view screen"
Cons: "Small seat"
Pros: "Extremely nice and helpful lady at Philadelphia airport self-service kiosks sorted seating and frequent flyer number out for me, I noticed she really was helping everyone who was working on their tickets and I was completely impressed. The cabin crew and pilots were very professional as well."
Cons: "There were one or two staff members phoning it in but even they were basically pleasant to deal with. Overall I'd definitely fly American again. It reminded me of the simplicity and professionalism of flying in the early 90s."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Nice aircraft,"
Cons: "let down by unattentive staff and felt more like a budget airline with the fact that you have to pay for meals"
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour plus delay in plane on tarmac then long flight with entertainment not working. Crew could care less."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was so so as usual."
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."
Pros: "American Airlines was amazing fed you a good meal fun crew good entertainment had 3 glasses of wine desert , and hot biscuits and coffee before landing was a great flight."
Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."
Pros: "It was a very short flight so not too much to go wrong."
Cons: "I had a carry on and a laptop case that fit under the seat. The laptop case has wheels and a handle. The gate agent said I need to check one bag, even though I could show that the laptop case was within the specs for fitting under the seat. When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."
Pros: "Delayed 2 hours out of charlotte. Missed flight to Madrid. Newark people are rude"
Cons: "Look above"
Cons: "The seat was extremely comfortable."
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "I did not like the departure delay from 6:05 to about 9:50. Why did have to wait so long for a pilot to come, and then further wait for a flight attendant to arrive"
Cons: "Fast boarding on coach."
Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."
Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."
Cons: "I was supposed to be there right now, but I'm still waiting in Chicago for my connecting flight to Dayton that was delayed."
Cons: "Me cambiaron de asiento arbitrariamente, yo hice check in 24 horas antes para escoger los asientos que me acomodaban a mí y mi acompañante de 12 años ( los primeros) y resulta que por un cambio de avión me dieron los últimos al lado del baño. Lo que fue horrible, el olor, los pasajeros haciendo fila al lado de mi asiento todo el tiempo, sin poder descansar o estar tranquila. Comprendo que pueden haber descompuestos en el avión y cambiarlo por otro pero al menos al re asignar asientos deberían ver los lugares iniciales que tenía cada uno y no dejar a quienes habían solicitado con anticipación los primeros en el último, literalmente en los últimos puestos. Además la comida es bastante mala."
Pros: "Enjoyed the rare opportunity to fly first class."
Cons: "Did not appreciate being delayed 30 minutes because flight attendants did not have enough rest time. Inconvenience 183 for the sake of 4 employees. This is the second flight in 1.5 weeks I have been on delayed by crew not on time."
Pros: "That it finally took off and landed."
Cons: "Everything else! American is getting worst by the day."
Pros: "The plane was new on the interior and comfortable."
Overall everything was smooth and pleasant
Canceled my trip never flew. They were rude and uninformed. Caused me grief wanting another covid test even though I had one plus I am vaccinated. No excuse. They should have had a test station by their ticketing counter. Had to hunt for transportation which was very difficult since it was 10 pm. Rented car for 350 to get home. I would think twice before booking through Kayak and with BA. kayak should have had more assistance and not just sell the ticket. Both receive an F .
Cons: "The pancake was not cooked enough couldn’t eat it"
Cons: "Boarding process.."
Pros: "Flight was not full, so despite a sub-par Business Class product the flight was very pleasant with empty seats all around"
Cons: "On line check-in/seat selection was a disaster"
Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and the crew was nice"
Cons: "The food was not the British Airways high quality"

Cons: "Kosher meal a bit hard to open"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasnt working on the first flight, and had poor content on the second flight."
Pros: "Nothing particularly"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight attendant throws the tray of food all over me. Never apologize Worst flight ever I'm a Gold Frequent Flyer. No more!!! Good Bye British Airways Hello Cathay Pacific!"
Pros: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"
Cons: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"
Pros: "The attitude of crew long ques for toilet"
Cons: "Long queues for toilet"
Pros: "The crew was kind and professional, cosy seats with enough place for the legs... Good content in entertainment system."
Pros: "Flavor was fine"
Cons: "Out of 6 special vegetarian meals provided on 4 recent flights, all were pasta. One main meal of pasta even had A SIDE of pasta salad."
Pros: "The wheelchair services at both Rome and Heathrow were superb. The lady who checked us in in Rome was extremely helpful."
Cons: "Food in business class could be better. One toilett in business class was unusable. At leadt 1 in economy cladd was also unusable."
Pros: "Not much. Even magazines were not available for 2 last raws."
Cons: "Even magazines were not available for 2 last raws"
Pros: "Service, clean restroom, courtesy of crew members"
Pros: "Nothing really was good or stood out in a positive way."
Cons: "Horrible lie flat seats with absolutely no stowage room. Seats are super cramped with 8 in a row you feel like being transported in a cattle car. Crew was most decidedly unfriendly. We were boarded on time despite the fact BA knew the flight was delayed and sat at the gate for an hour. Food was equivalent to hospital food. U must be crazy to fly business in BA. Never again."
Cons: "No breakfast on out bound leg"
Cons: "Don’t do it!! Totally disorganized airline with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful"
Pros: "My upgrade."
Cons: "That I needed to be searched again before boarding the plane. The long layover."
Pros: "Virtually nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced. 90 minutes late departure due to “late inbound aircraft”. Uncomfortable seats - in “Club Europe”. Abysmal food - what would be an economy snack in a decent airline. Really, don’t bother with BA. It’s Ryanair with better livery."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid for bulkhead seat and was not given a bulkhead seat."
Pros: "Good and crew were fine"
Cons: "Seats were too close, not comfortable"
Cons: "the flight delayed a lot and i missed my connection flight as a result"
Pros: "World Traveler Plus on BA is not as good as premium economy on other airlines."
Cons: "Check in. Too many people checking in and too few BA employees to handle crowd. Severely understaffed."
Cons: "The airplane was shaking all the flight"
Pros: "The new flight procedures informational film at the beginning of the flight (BA/Comic Relief)"
Cons: "The flight was to Heathrow which was not prepared to accept us at all. We waited 45 minutes in passport control. I expect BA to make sure the port of destination is prepared to receive its passengers"
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "I paid 100$ because I had to cancel my request. It was a technical error of your reservation system which unexpectedly changed my return from the 5th of November to the 6th of November. The fine was unfair and you're required to refund me."
Pros: "The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in recent traveling experiences. They were very attentive to every passenger."
Cons: "We only paid for economy seats, and unfortunately, it's hard to expect much more than what we got. The friendly service made up for the lack of comfort these seats provide."
Pros: "Upgraded to world traveler plus was way more comfortable. The flight crew were so so nice and helpful. I am handicapped and they just couldn't do enough to make me comfortable."
Cons: "They the seats I reserved months ago were changed."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional, boarding was orderly which was a welcome relief in this day and age. The only saving grace for this flight was the entire crew."
Cons: "Everything except the crew. The airplane interior was ancient and would be better served with Allegiant aircraft and not something that should be on a so called premium route by a once premium company. I would honestly recommend anyone fly Thomas Cook or TUI or even Norwegian before flying British Airways 777s as they are ancient wrecks with no value proposition. I would recommend going by boat before flying British Airways 772. The only time I would recommend flying any of the 772s from British Airways was if walking was your only other choice and even then a nice pair of trainers would probably be more comfortable."
Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."
Cons: "No food selection. No vegan meal that i ordered for my daughter."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"
Cons: "BA cancelled the flight, did not reroute us, provided a phone number for tel aviv (closed for the weekend). Terrible customer service. And our ticket was bought thru vayama who also did not bother to help us. Bad bad customer service for BA."
Cons: "boarding with bus instead of sleeve"
Pros: "Security staff was rude in England and our suitcases was lost And they did not even let us know"
Pros: "The crew was very efficient"
Cons: "The was really bad."
Cons: "I received no information from British Airways! Luckily someone saw that all flights on BA had been canceled. This is the second time this has happened with British Airways. They have zero customer service and terrible communication."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent."
Cons: "Almost everything else! The entertainment system had screens that were the size of postage stamps - and bragged that there were 375 selections. Compare with Emirates, a screen 10x the size, much higher quality, and over 3500 selections. The seats had little padding - a mediocre experience from an airline that should be able to do better."
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailingly helpful and polite. We paid extra for exit row seats, which were wonderful for my 6'6" husband's long legs."
Cons: "The food wasn't really edible, but the flight was only 5 hours long, so it wasn't a great issue."
