Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Had to check prophylacticly my roller bag, even though flight wasn't full—"
Pros: "The seating configuration. Complementary drinks."

Cons: "missed the connecting flight due to delay"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot took off and landed very well and I got completely drink and food. I will fly again. Thanks"

People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Small planes have better nicer seats and more leg room"

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."
Pros: "The Service, with smile, awesome service. Very British!"
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: "How do you be a full service airline and charge for check in bag. I had no way provided to prepay for a bag resulting in getting charged £60 at the airport. This notwithstanding trying to explain how your website failed me."

Pros: "Boarded on Time"

Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Loved arriving in the city instead of Gatwick."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome!"
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: "They were 25 min late landing. Even though we were taking the same plan from London City to Glasgow, we had to get off and go through customs and reboard, all in 5 min. They knew we had to do that and they almost took off without us and a few others in the same position. Then the stewardesses acted like we caused them to take off late to Glasgow....really rude."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "We took the offer of putting cabin baggage in hold. Some of those that retained theirs had "oversized" bags that should have been taken from them at the steps of the plane. As this did not happen there were a lot of problems including the problem of opening the lockers"
Cons: "Stricter control on cabin bags. The result was that our bags were already on the belt when we got to customs area"

Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed early, no queues at passport control and bags were delivered quickly."
Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."
Cons: "The connection was not good too little time between flights also the American Airlines desk was hidden. We had to get boarding passes at the exit gate. There should have been a rep to guide passengers to desk."
Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."
Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."
Pros: "Crew was mostly kind and helpful. My bags arrived at their final destination."
Cons: "I was told that I had to check my bag because it would not fit in the overhead bin. When I got on the plane I found that the overhead bins were ample sized for my hiking pack. I know that British Airways has a policy regarding bags in overhead bins that basically says 'if you cannot lift your bag into the overhead bin un-assisted, you must check your bag.' My husband and I are both experienced hikers, we lifted our packs unassisted on the last plane, yet they forced us to check our bags. I'm glad our bags made it to the UK, but this is literally the first time I've checked a bag and had it arrive. Also, the boarding passes sent to me on my phone were rejected by almost every security/boarding check. This is after BA supposedly fixed their error with the previous boarding passes. Overall not pleased with the experience but glad I paid under $300 for my ticket."
Pros: "Clean efficient on time Nice staff"
Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."
Cons: "As requested checked my bag in and it took an absolute age to get my bag in Edinburgh. I ordered a toastie it was lukewarm"
Pros: "Crew was superb, very friendly and helpful as the handle of my bag broke. They did all they could to assist."
Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Boarded on a bus"
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Cons: "Overpriced and outperformed by the Budget Airlines."
Pros: "Fast Boarding. Easy Airport"
Cons: "Very Rude & Disrespectful Crew"
Pros: "Flight as always great"
Cons: "Delay made me miss two meetings"

Pros: "The best ever and a flew crew that understands hospital."
Cons: "Movies were second rate"
Pros: "Even on a short flight, you can feel a difference with the crew. This one was very good."
Cons: "Took hand luggage at gate and waited an hour to get it at baggage claim"
Cons: "security in Heathrow was AWFUL. There was only ONE person working to screen luggage AND check luggage that was questionable. There wee 15 people waiting for luggage who almost missed their connections. I sprinted through the airport and made my connection with 2 minutes to spare."
Pros: "Good flight, bit bumpy due to weather."
Cons: "4-hour delay for a 40minute flight"
Cons: "No hay entretenimiento"
Pros: "Service was great - so polite and friendly. And the coffee was worth every penny."
Cons: "the luggage fee - Now I understand why the fare was so inexpensive! I'm an American and thus slow :-)"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Luggage delayed."
Pros: "Was not made aware of baggage policy. Their regular policy allows one checked baggage but not our ticket. Was not prompted when doing online check in and led to me paying almost 200 pounds for luggage. Just ridiculous!"
Cons: "Baggage policy not clear - good way to force customers to pay more and help their revenue!"
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"
Pros: "I was travelling alone with a baby and a toddler and found most of the staff very helpful - stowing my bags, helping to carry my buggy, helping with seat belts etc."
Cons: "A member of staff at the gate referred to my 2 year old daughter as "a difficult child" to another member of staff because she didn't like having her photo taken. I felt it was very rude and unfair, particularly as I had to lift her to an awkward height (whilst also holding a baby) as the camera was in a fixed position. It was clear the staff member didn't have children herself!"
Pros: "I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew helpful."
Cons: "More than an hour late in taking off, and the food is almost inedible - get the Air Canada chef on board!"
