Cons: "Trip was a disaster"
Cons: "American airlines connections were terrible"

Cons: "Heathrow is the worst airport when you have a passenger who needs a wheel chair."
Pros: "Warm welcome, on time and comfortable"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks and very tight quarters"
Pros: "Nothing to like at all."

Cons: "Entertainment need more movies"
Pros: "very comfortable but because it was not a full flight"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Cons: "Rude staff at the airport. Short overlay did not have enough time to get our bags and checkin again that was ridiculous to have to check in again!"
Pros: "Me and my husband were upgraded from world traveler plus to business class, which we are thankful for"
Cons: "We were unable to order special meal online and were told to contact onboard crew for meals. When we contacted them inflight, they said they don’t have meals!!! And we were left to starve the whole night, while food was served for all around us. The really shocking thing is none of the crew had the courtesy to offer some snacks or bread. These especially when we were seated in business class!"
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Flight canceled want able to rebook"
Pros: "Comfortable seats Great raspberries and blueberries. Delicious."
Cons: "As a Kenyan Passport Holder living in Canada on a PR status was denied right to travel to Kenya via LHR transit. WHY ? will you help us with our rights what compensation will help to alleviate the pain"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "The flight was good , seat very comfortable ,servie good"
Cons: "I didn't like that my 22 year old granddaughter was separated from my other granddaughtner and me while we were going or water and food. When we returned, we were told that this was an extra security check required by the US gov. and that she would be returned before boarding. That was my grandstanding at least . What happened was that she was not returned and no further communicated with my other granddaughter and me by the time the plane was being hoarded. It doesn't require a vivid imagination to think of fake BAW employees and human trafficking tp understand why I was terrified by the disappearance without return of my green eyed ,lovely young granddaughter."
Pros: "Everything! Best airline ever."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "This was my worst flight experience in a long time...an anomaly from other recent BA flights. I was unable to sleep on the flight because it was so crowded. I ordered a lactose-free meal that was unbelievably horrible and from which I'm pretty sure I contracted a food-borne bug that kept me ill (as in sleeping up to 15 hours a day and running for the toilet) for a week after the flight."
Pros: "Boarded us pretty quickly at Heathrow"
Cons: "Crew was not polite and helpful during the leaky hydraulic pipe incident. Did not try to reassure or let people know what was going on. It was very hot at the rear of the plane, could not breath. They served the food slowly and portions were smaller than normal. Small and boring selection of movies this month."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good"
Cons: "This was an old plane with the cvs in the ceiling and only every 8 or so seats so the entertainment was difficult to see and much needed during a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "The speed of bouncing back from the computer system mishap"
Cons: "The check in people' rudeness, awful food, slow service"
Pros: "Everyone please read this carefully before flying with British Airways - we will be taking this further as customer service is appalling!"
Cons: "British Airways overbooked the flight so we missed it and the next one due to system failure. We then were trapped in the airport (Heathrow) for the entire day. They 'allowed' us to leave the airport nine hours after we got there but unfortunately there were no trains, planes or buses going to Milan until midnight. After we searched for two hours to get to Milan we found one but had to spend nine hundred pounds to get a flight with another airline to get to my friends wedding. They lost our bags so we had to borrow clothes for the wedding from friends which was so embarrassing! We then continued our trip and they still have not returned our bags seven days into what was going to be the holiday of a lifetime. Not only have they ruined the trip for us both, they have cost us a bomb as we have had to buy clothes as we go."
Pros: "Nothing to like in particular."
Cons: "Why does BA insist on serving spicy food on every flight from the US to the UK. I was offered chicken or pasta and no one even bothered to tell me it was chicken curry. With BA I always bring food on board with me as the inflight meals are awful."
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Pros: "The gate agent"
Pros: "nothing the plane got delayed four times with no warning and then got cancelled when we all got lined up at the gate for the plane (we stood in line for 15 MINUTES BEFORE ANYONE TOLD US SHIT)"
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane got cancelled after hours of sitting in the airport, I didn't like the lack of communication between British airways staff and (would be) passengers, I didn't like that it would've taken me literally three hours to speak to a representative, and I am going to get a refund. I ended up taking an 80 pound train to London that took two and a half hours, and I expect the airway to pay for that too. This was bullshit and I hate this shirt air line."
Pros: "Decent people running the flight. More or less on time."
Cons: "Cramped seating. No room at all for a laptop...which is very inconvenient"
Pros: "787-9 new aircraft with the total lack of space in economy, my worst transatlantic crossing in thirty years. DVT waiting to happen."
Pros: "The crew were ok, nothing really to comment on bad or good."
Cons: "The boarding area was just a corridor. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. At check in there were not nearly enough staff to handle the volume of customers checking in."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Damaged suitcase"
Cons: "airfare.com is truly awful, and I'll avoid using that service in future"
