Flight was changed. No communication from kayak. Had to spend a long time in the phone with American Airlines and ended up traveling for 20 hours when it should have taken 9.

Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Good seats at back of plane"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than an hour due to mishandling of baggage - was at runway for takeoff and was called back to the gate because a bag was loaded that should not have been."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "It is ridiculous to have elderly passengers made to carry heavy luggage up and down multiple steep stairways. This happened in Dublin, Edinburgh and of all places, Heathrow was the worst. There is no excuse not to have level walkways and Entrances to these large planes. Totally unacceptable given the prices we pay to travel."
Pros: "The plane was huge with lots of empty seats. This is better than my flight out, which was oversold (I was the person who didn't have a seat, until just before departure when someone else didn't show up). The seats appeared to be new."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. No information was available about what gate the delayed flight would be departing from, which made it difficult to relax while waiting due to fears of missing the flight whenever it finally took off. The electronic flight list said to check the monitor at 6:38pm to find out what gate would be used (for a 5:30pm flight). I checked the monitor at 6:14 and it said the flight was boarding. This seems like a recipe for making people miss the flight. At the very least it made things stressful. No free food/beverages were provided (some is available at a cost). A family with a very tired baby was forced to wait in a huge long line rather than being pre-boarded. That just seems discourteous to me."
Pros: "All the flight attendants were so friendly and helpful! Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that 1) I was seated at the emergency exit, 2) that as a result, I would not be allowed to have my carry-on at my seat. Communication would have been appreciated."
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!"
Cons: "Flight delayed and caused me to miss connection. The flight from Edinburgh to London is only an hour. This became a disaster for travel all day."
Pros: "Entertainment and amount of food and drinks served was adequate"
Cons: "3 different delays totalling over 2 hours then sat on the plan waiting to take off for another 30+ min with no regard to connecting flights, passenger confort, etc"
Pros: "The modern plane and comfortable seats, fast boarding with little queue"
Cons: "The new strange self check in and baggage drop proceedure"
Cons: "Boarding takes longer on BA than any other airline I've flown on. Breakfast was awful. Cream cheese on a white roll tastes like paste. You'll really could be doing better than this."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "We were late to our outbound flight due to our other flight being delayed from weather. We went to the ticket desk area, which was closed and were directed to another help desk. Once at the front the attendent refused to help us and sent us to another desk at the other end of the terminal. After waiting in another long line, the attendent told us we had missed all flights to Edinburgh. There lack of staff and customer service caused us to miss all flights and trains into Edinburgh. On top of that, we were notified our flight back to London would be cancelled because we missed our outbound flight and that she could not provide us with any credits or refunds that we would need to call customer service. We lost the money we spent on our Edinburgh hotel and had no way to get to our vacation."
Cons: "We had a carry on and were flying business class. They made us check in the bag but it was clear that it could fit. They said it was a busy flight so we had to give our bag up to check in. We arrived on the plane and there was plenty of space to put our luggage. It was not a friendly experience especially paying the premium to fly business. They were very direct and non forgiving. Crew on board were nice though!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Why have they destroyed this once great airline. Better choice of destinations and better prices and similar poor service from the Budget Airlines..Once I return I WILL NOT fly BA ever again."
Cons: "Paying top dollar for the fare and the being asked to pay for the food and drink which was hugely overpriced anyway. They are now an Expensive no-frills budget service airline."
Pros: "Nice legroom in world plus."
Cons: "Wish there was live TV for sports."
Pros: "Crew was great. Process of boarding and disembarking was fine."
Cons: "Space in regards to seating is inadequate"
Pros: "Good experience."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Rude flight crew!"
Pros: "The subject says it all."
Cons: "Disorganised"
Pros: "There was sufficient leg room in seating."
Cons: "No drink or snack during flight. Made it seem like a cut-rate airline. Had to board across the tarmac and up the steps as if we were on a "puddle-jumper.""
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had connection flight from Edinburgh to Amman with 1 hour 20 minutes layover in heathrow we had delay around 2 hours in Edinburgh we arrived 20 min before LHR-AMM flight and we missed our flight"
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant flight"
Pros: "Food and service was great. Pilot made trip smooth"
Cons: "Boarding at edinburgh was confusing."
Pros: "I would have liked to have been offered water at least without a charge."
Cons: "Boarding security very bad"
Cons: "I on line checked in but it only checked me in for this flight and not my next flight which meant I was on standby. Agent at check-in could not change it."
Pros: "I expected a wonderful experience with British Air but unfortunately our flight from Edinburgh was delayed , missed our connecting flight from Heathrow. We were put up in a hotel by BA and arrived st Heathrow to find our replacement BA flight was delayed because of fuel issues. Still sitting and waiting."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The boarding crew from Edinburgh did not allow me to bring my carry on despite it being very light and within size restriction. They said this was because the plane was already full with others' luggage and could not handle my bag for safety. Had to shove my things in a Tesco carrier bag and in my daughters small backpack on wheels. The backpack broke later as it was not made to carry more than a few books. And to top it off, the suitcase I was made to check never made it on my connecting flight to Chicago. I am still waiting for it to be delivered 36 hours later. This suitcase is virtually empty. Well, it's actually carrying a pair of sunglasses and my phone charger. totally inconvenienced and the crew saved the plane from being dangerously overloaded by an empty suitcase. Absolute nonsense."
Cons: "The queuing process was not efficient, the packing of people on a shuttle bus was dangerous with the number of people squashed onto the bus and then we had to wait on the bus for quite a while for the determination to be made that the flight was ready. Once on the flight, the hanging flap that separates the first class from economy, was loosely hanging and rattled fiercely and on lift-off swung back toward our faces. We had to pay 4 pounds for a coke and weird coffee. Then we had to circle London while we waited to land because of the IT mess in London."
Cons: "Not many choices on direct flights from Edinburgh to Shannon our final destination. Waste of time having to fly to London first for a connecting flight"
Cons: "Had to pay for any food or drink."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Reached 20 mins before time Leg space was ample."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overcharged for baggage as the BA online baggage payment system was not working."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Small sits for three people"
Pros: "Efficient check in and boarding. And friendly staff."
Pros: "It was a short flight, so didn't need much."
Cons: "Charged for food, even water. Boarding pass had one gate, but flight actually boarded from a different gate. No one there to tell us, no announcement. Good thing I checked board. No entertainment system."
Pros: "Everything on the flight was fine the crew was great and the seats had a comfortable amount of legroom."
Cons: "I was shocked to learn that my ticket did not include any check in baggage allowance. Plus the charge of £60 per bags for our travel party of three was just rude. I was also disappointed to Learn that BA would not honor my One World Saphire status in anyway and give me a free checkin."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air conditioning did not work in my section of the cabin The entertainment center felt like a 1960s generation VCR, esp the navigation and video quality. The selection was terrible. Food was terrible and unhealthy. Toilet seemed to have an air leak, extremely noisy air being sucked down sink. Aircraft appeared old and obsolete."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Plane was new and clean. Entertainment selections were good. Lots of food and drink served. Lots infomercial space for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seating is cramped in Coach. The headrests on the seats have a tendency to push your head forward when the seat is in an upright position. When the seat in front of you reclines, it is difficult to cross your legs or reach for something stored under the seat. It seems to me that given how long passengers are in their seats on overseas trips, that seating should be more comfortable."
Cons: "Little close on the connection"
Pros: "The flight was very good- nice that food was served even on a short flight- crew was very nice- everything was easy."
Cons: "Some passengers were allowed to drink excessively becoming very loud and continually bumping into aisle-seated passengers."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Lost our luggage both at destination and on return to Chicago. Also canceled flights resulting in having to stay overnight at layover location spending night sleeping on sofa without blankets. Due to cancelled flight we didn't get to spend night in hotel I already payed for and now will lose day of work. My daughter and I will never travel with these are lines again. WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED AND ANGRY. AMERICAN AIRWAYS AND BRITISH AIRWAYS are huge disappointment to us."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Being trapped at Edinburgh airport. The incompetence of BA. The shocking state of their aircraft. Their inability to understand customer service."
