Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed."
Pros: "The hot bacon sandwich for breakfast was generous for economy."
Cons: "We left late but I’m not sure the airline could do much about it."
Pros: "The seating configuration. Complementary drinks."
Cons: "The chance to be able to volunteer the hand baggage in Dusseldorf airport the same as available in London Terminal 5. The plane is small and it is best to have it sent to the haul after clearing security. This was not offered at any stage at Dusseldorf."
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "missed the connecting flight due to delay"
Cons: "Delay of a half hour."
Pros: "Offer of small meal."

Pros: "The stewards were very nice and professional!"
Cons: "From my point of view, everything was just right. Loved it."
Pros: "The Flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The gate could have actually showed our flight which it did not. Someone could have communicated that the flight was delayed instead of saying final call on the boards. Overall it was very confusing and no staff was present to assist. In the end we were 2 hours late."
Cons: "Be on time so we dont miss our connection"
Pros: "Flight and on board service was fine"
Cons: "It is not acceptable when arriving at the recommended time, at a major airport, with a major airline, to find no desks open. We checked in online but our passes “could not be issued”. There were no self service terminals so we stood waiting an hour. Staff were sitting idly but not serving customers."
Pros: "More legroom comes as standard, compared to competitor airlines on the same route with the same aircraft"
Cons: "The interior of the plane is a little bit tatty"
Pros: "I like every single thing staff was kindly, smiley and helpful. Check in easy, I liked very much our pop corn and Fanta complimentary offer as also our quick trip. Landing smoothly and nicely"
Cons: "there was nothing I didnt like"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Staff very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Because some of the passengers had not booked in online they were selected to be admitted from fight if takeoff problems occurred. Apparently there was a problem due to high wind gusts in taking off from Florence but information was very minimal and not displayed to passengers. People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"
Cons: "Better not be hungry while boarding"
Pros: "I think I may have had more room in the seat on this little plane than when I crossed the ocean. Also the window seemed bigger. Very comfortable flight."

Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the seats comfy for the 2hr flight"
Cons: "Having to board the plane in the pouring rain by running across the tarmac."
Pros: "As someone who hadn’t flown with BA for a while, I certainly had positive experience with this flight. The staff was professional and the boarding/disembarking processes were smooth and quick."
Cons: "Need to work on punctuality. Would have been an excellent journey if it wasn’t for the delay."
Cons: "Called me a no show even though I was there."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, staff was delightful, flight was early arrival, everything was super."
Cons: "We arrived with 3 hours before our flight, as recommend for International travel. But we were not allowed to check our bags until 9:50 AM. We waited on line for almost 2 hours! If we had been told of this restriction we could have gone to a lounge to relax. Instead we waited a long time on foot."
Pros: "Stuff happens outside of the company's control and the inbound flight was an hour late due to crew absence. We were kept informed along the way and we boarded 55 minutes later than expected. However I couldn't have wanted for a better inflight service. Charming helpful and effective."
Cons: "Having to wait for the delayed flight."
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "There were no gluten-free food options, not even an apple, so no food for us."
Pros: "Better than Ryanair/easyjet but then again. That’s nothing to write home about"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours. The plane was old dirty and stinky. I paid last minute for my flight so it was a lot more than usual so I feel ripped off because of the poor quality"
Cons: "I missed the flight not because of me, but the confusion information that a staff gave it to me."
Cons: "BA has a problem with one of the doors. Chaos."
Pros: "Free wine or beer"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and boarding was completely stress free. Myself and my partner checked in online with ease and were at our gates efficiently upon departure and return"
Cons: "Our flights were delayed 3 hours and 20 and although we were compensated for lunch at the airport, when handing out refreshments onboard we were completely missed out. Also pretty annoyed to find that we could only use the lunch vouchers in a hand full of the bars and restaurants."
Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."
Pros: "Aircraft was excellent LCY is very convenient Price was very competitive for most trips"
Cons: "BA is BA, Better than low cost guys but not LH Sometimes prices are high, with coach being higher than Club."
Cons: "Flight was fine LCY Worked very well. You are BA I DO NOT WANT TO BE NICKLE AND DIMED TO TAKE LUGGAGE. Yare not Ryan Air. If there is a charge make it clear when I buy the ticket. I do not expect to have to tell BA to grow up."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Small planes have better nicer seats and more leg room"
Cons: "Massive delay due to snow, no vouchers given until flight was cancelled (and it was all closed). Only updates were via BA app or email. Next day flight also delayed, and again delays communicated only via app or email (not at signs at airport)"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. On time, clean aircraft and professional."
Cons: "But the food policy is a joke. They wouldn’t give us anything, including water without buying it. I had no local currency and was waiting until I landed to use the ATM. When flying, people need water."
Cons: "THE BACK FIRST TOOK MY MONEY, THEN MY FULL PASSPORT DETAILS AND THEN DENIED ME FLYING BECAUSE THEY PUT MY SURNAME TWICE ON THE BOARDING PASS. THEY ARE ALWAYS WIN. I AM OUT OF POCKET FOR £170 AND DELAYED BY 2.5 HOURS. THIS IS THE WAY THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY - BY CHEATING ON PASSENGERS."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian entre and also ran out of snacks, so I was very hungry and had no options."
Cons: "City Airport crowded and overly commercialised. Rip-off prices."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"
Cons: "The boarding process was like a Third World country. The flight was fine, the flight attendants were lovely, but the boarding process was ridiculous. Nobody in the gate area knew which gate it was leaving from or what time it was leaving, it was quite delayed, finally it was posted to start boarding at five minutes after the departure time and instead, when everyone looked up, people were boarding 10 minutes before that. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Free food and drink remains on City flights. Convenience of City."
Cons: "Long flight. No entertainment"
Pros: "I thought the crew were extremely helpful and friendly and made for a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The coffee was just "okay"."
Pros: "Boarded on Time"
Cons: "Flight took off but the plane was faulty. We landed an hour after take off waited in a room with no air conditioning for over an hour with no updates. After 3 hours after the flight was supposed to leave they cancelled the flight. Very poor and very disappointed!"
Pros: "Lucky enough that the flight was half empty so there was space for the passengers, the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was from Faro in July excesseding temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius outside, while inside was a an absolute freezer, not more than 15/16 degrees inside. I had to change cloathing mid flight cus I couldn't deal with the cold air anymore. On previous flight from London stansted to fato was exactly the same, and there wasn't any difference, we asked if we could turn off the aircon, no answer was given, neither warm covers were provided since the air was so cold. The flight attendant was female, by the name tag was "Praya" was somewhat a bit insensitive, but I realised after that she was as unfortunate as we were cus she was wearing a short sleeve shirt part of uniform, and experiencing the same as the rest of the passengers. The temperature issue caused the flight to be extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Loved arriving in the city instead of Gatwick."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Flight was being delayed every half hour. Finally after 4 hours we took off. Flight was due for take off at 16:20 but finally departed at 20:30. Food coupons were good for a sandwich and a drink. Will switch airlines in future as we make frequent trips to London."

Cons: "If I weren't super hungover"
Cons: "Missed our connection because of problem w jetway"
Pros: "Nothing British airways was fine"
Cons: "Your website messed up and booked my flight for the wrong month. I booked sept 20 2019 and your site errored out. Eventually it booked the flight but apparently it was for oct 20, 2019 and I couldn’t get a refund because it was through kayak not British airways. I’m never using kayak ever again"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "It took 3 people to check my bag something was wrong with the system ... the airplane was super hot for first half hour or so because there was a problem with air conditioner."
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew, good food"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "Extremely poor timing and communication. Departed over 2hr late and missed landing to the correct airport by 10 mins and so had to divert to an airport an hour away with poor coordination"
Pros: "Helpful and Friendly Crew. Did their best to help during the delay. Able to take hand baggage on board (unlike our kid journey when forced to check it in at the gate)"

Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"
Pros: "Attentive service by flight attendants"
Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."
Pros: "Food was good and service excellent"
Cons: "The plane was very unconfortable"
Pros: "All of it we left and landed ahead of time"
Pros: "BA crews are always great. Also excellent that they don’t have those annoying M&S menus on LCY flights. I don’t object to paying, but it just slows everything down."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Couldnt pick seat after checkin. They put me in the middle in the back row even though there were better seats left empty right next to me. baggage would have cost 100 pounds to check. Flight was not exactly cheap at 200 pounds. Will just fly the budget airline next time over british air since. I expect better accomodation for these prices."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and food and drink good as on most flight to and from City Airport. Seats very comfortable compared to main fleet. City Flyer is still worth paying the extra which most flight by main fleet ex Heathrow or Gatwick are not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding not great as we were kept waiting in a hot bus outside the aircraft for 15 minutes"
Pros: "Comfortable short hop"
Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."
Pros: "Par from below the flight was great as always"
Cons: "CSD was rude and not nice to his fellow staff member in economy. Small delay but not a common thing"
Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I had to throw away some very expensive facial creams/cosmetics on my connecting British Airway flight from London to MAdrid. I suddenly had to fit everything I had into a very small bag. They said it was policy, but I had been on a British Airway flight the whole time! Why was it allowed when I boarded?"
Pros: "I always fly AA but this time was a nightmare"
Cons: "The gate agents put me on a wild goose chase as they made an error on the time of my flight departing. My wife and I were sent to three gates and finally was apologized to by the manager on duty. Our flights were changed for free put we lost 5 hours of travel. My wife started IVF treatment today... and she was uanbale to sleep before her 7am appt ( got home at 3am) Very stressful!!!"
Pros: "Somehow we board first than everyone else. It left and arrived on time. Friendly service."
Cons: "2 Hour Delay"
Cons: "Flight LCY-ZRH (19:35-22:10) departed delayed by >1h, we had to wait in boarding staircase standing with 9mth old baby for 45mins. Due to late take-off we were too late to land in ZRH as runway had already closed. Diverted to Stuttgart, where no BA staff was on the ground to deal with and all services had already closed (~00:30). Basically ~50 customers were dumped at a place they didn’t want to be and no info on his BA wanted to deal with it was given. After 1 week still no info on compensation. And this wants to be a major carrier?"
Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"
Pros: "All BA staff were professional, pleasant and helpful. My seat had more leg room than I was expecting (after a flight Seattle to Heathrow where my knees were jammed against the seat ahead of me."
Cons: "I was frustrated that I had to pay for either a cup of coffee or water. Since all healthcare providers recommend that one must drink water on a flight to stay hydrated and healthy, a complimentary bottle of water would have supported healthy travel. Due to a short layover in Heathrow, I had no time to fill my own water bottle."
Pros: "Flight was pretty good."
Cons: "Check in was very slow an staff was not very helpful."
Pros: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"
Cons: "Mixed up boarding arrangements, length of time to disembark, being coached to the terminal. ok these add up as stress for business travelers on a deadline for meetings"
Cons: "For some reason we were boarded and ready to go and only then did they think to send for a de-icer. A 40 minute delay on a 1 hour flight. At the other end we then had to wait 20 mins to get off."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "On time and easy."
Cons: "BA have stopped giving free snacks and drinks which was always refreshing and different to other airlines! It set them apart but it's just back to another airline now!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."
Pros: "Simple flight left later than expect but arrived earlier than scheduled. Leg room was plenty and not like other airline where you feel packed like sardines."
Cons: "Nothing so far just a shame my luggage was damaged."
Cons: "Boarding at Gate E46 was disorganised both in timing ans execution. We were told on checkin that boarding would be early and it was late, closer to the original estimated time and then the order of boarding, parents with kids, then ExecClub and Business, and then others was ignored..."
Cons: "Food, but surprised that they served anything!"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time! Comfortable aircraft"
Pros: "When it got going, a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The delay was longer than the flight, although not necessarily BA's fault."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "British Airways misplaced our luggage for three days, and would give us no further information than "it will arrive soon." So, we were stuck near the local address we had provided in case they called for 2 full days. They refused to give us a more precise time as to when they would be delivered. Well, at one point they did say that they would be delivered at noon, but they weren't. Throughout the entire time waiting for the luggage to be delivered, there was no sense of urgency or concern on the part of British Airways. It seems missing luggage is just Business as Usual at British Airways."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and service was excellent"
Cons: "Keep the complementary snacks and drinks made the flight great after a long day"
Cons: "delays, loud drunk in boarding area in Amsterdam that had been removed from his flight,"
Cons: "Nor too many good movies to choose from. I get it , row number 47, don't expect any 1st class comfort, but still, i was glad to land in Denver. Started to run out of sitting positions that didn't hurt."
