Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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"
Cons: "With 2h30 hours delayed flight I missed my train and had to have a hotel Arcturus airport in Amsterdam and continue my journey only the day after."
Cons: "A plane made any year after 1990... Last minute flight switch caused great discomfort and VERY narrow seats"
Pros: "LCY very efficient baggage drop, flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Incoming flight delayed so late departure"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Never board check in luggage at lcy, they don't know what to do with it"
Pros: "Short flight, uncrowded Embraer plane, easy check in at City airport and easy arrival at Prague."
Cons: "Late departure due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” - which seems to be the norm."
Pros: "The flight left on time although take-off was delayed due yo traffic. Plane is new and comfortable."
Cons: "I did not enjoy the Java coffee I ordered because the coffee pulps were the first item I tasted upon drinking the coffee. I called the attention of the flight attendants but nobody answered because the 2 were busy selling items to the passengers. I just removed the coffee bits by throwing them out of my mouth using napkin."
Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"
Pros: "I was flying Business and I couldn’t tell any difference between Business and Economy except the covers on the headrest"
Cons: "No difference between Business and Economy"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed early, no queues at passport control and bags were delivered quickly."
Pros: "We could reschedule it. But only a week later."
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."
Cons: "No food available on flight in business class. Kitchen breakdown"
Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Pros: "Because someone was sitting in my seat, I was moved to one near the exit which has more legroom, without having to pay £28. The flight was on time and we were kept well informed of some chaos that was happening around push back."
Cons: "The atrocious check-in process - why only 24 hours or less? Why are you always allocated a seat between other people. Why is it almost impossible to change that? - oh yes, because BA want you to pay a premium to avoid the hassle."
Pros: "Clean efficient on time Nice staff"
Cons: "Lost my seat assignment, got middle seat"
Pros: "Crew was superb, very friendly and helpful as the handle of my bag broke. They did all they could to assist."
Cons: "It was on Air Lingus not BA. No Entertainment -"
Pros: "Nice flight personnel."
Cons: "Not even free water on the plane for an international flight! Can it get any more basic!?"
Pros: "Lie flat bed"
Cons: "Non-A380 plane feels very old now and in need of an overhaul. My biggest complaint was the food. On the outbound leg (SFO-LHR) I had the pasta dish which was dry and poorly cooked so on the return flight I opted for the beef dish which was ok. I thought that the pasta was just a one-off issue. When the pre-landing meal arrived, it was so bad I had to look at the menu to see what it was (pea mousse with artichoke and almonds). It was completely inedible. Finally the amenities bag consisted of hand cream, face lotion and lip balm as well as the std toothpaste, socks, eyeshades etc. in the past there were far more items in the bag. Overall it feels like BA has cut costs and I had a reasonable deal on my flight price which I was willing to pay just to have a lie flat bed. I can't imagine if I paid $5K for this flight and had the same experience. I recently flew Emirates from SFO to Dubai in business class and it was comparable to first class in BA."
Pros: "Fast Boarding. Easy Airport"
Cons: "Very Rude & Disrespectful Crew"
Pros: "Flight as always great"
Cons: "Delay made me miss two meetings"
Pros: "Good entertainment. More comfortable. The ride was smooth."
Cons: "Service. Having to ask for my food being skipped and also having food choices."
Pros: "Mostly the crew made me feel welcomed. They were polite and courteous, when I ordered hot food, they advised there would be a delay, but promptly delivered it after. When they forgot my drink, they did not seem put out to get it for me."
Cons: "When I boarded, I was asked by a lady at the gate how many months I was pregnant, I felt her manner could have been more polite, and that, since she had noticed I was pregnant and I was quite tired, I might have been given a bit of priority to get to my seat, but I was stood in the queue and had quite a wait."
Cons: "Seats are way too tight. Plane itself was very loud."
Pros: "Easy boarding, quick travel and smooth landing."
Cons: "Basic snacks"
Pros: "Always a good flight out of LCY"
Pros: "Everyone is so nice with British Airways. The food is always a delight too. I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Cons: "It seems the economy seats get smaller and smaller, but the trip was great overall."
Cons: "Took hand luggage at gate and waited an hour to get it at baggage claim"
Pros: "Good flight, bit bumpy due to weather."
Cons: "4-hour delay for a 40minute flight"
Pros: "The services in general."
Cons: "Not of anything that I saw."
Cons: "I did not realize BA was now a no frills airline It's now "low cost service" at regular price"
Pros: "All great"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No preferred boarding for business class. Business class seat was exactly same as economy Food option was not good"
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."
Pros: "Nice crew and modern aircraft"
Cons: "I do this flight every year at this time and now BA actually charges you to choose a seat - on top of the (not cheap) hand luggage fare. And there was no apology for the delay."
Pros: "Flights attend"
Pros: "Really comfortable"
Cons: "late on two occasions first one 20 mins second and the n an hour. Not told why. Then boarding passes had to be reissued with different seats ..whole thing a shambles"
Pros: "The flight attendants on this flight where the best I've ever had!"
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: "That you could watch movies and shows from the headrest, very helpful to pass the time. They fed us a lot (very salty) and were very nice."
Cons: "I was in the back in the cheap seats (row 50) with a friend, we are both small to regular size and the guy seated in the aisle seat was very small and it was still difficult to get up and around each other to use the restroom. Oh well I paid $462 for round trip and arrived safely, that's what matters most."
Pros: "Fast bag drop and quick efficient boarding. Flight wasn't full so plenty of space. BA still serves complimentary drinks and a small snack (crisps or biscuit) with the drinks."
Pros: "The British Airways staff was good. The food was decent, we took off on time and the loading and unloading of the plane was orderly and efficient."
Cons: "The Boeing 787 'Dreamliner' is a a sardine can with wings. I'll admit, I'm a 6'5'' man, but I'm slim and in good shape. I fly often on many airlines. I'm also not a rich man and I fly coach. The legroom was pathetic, and despite being a slim guy I felt crowded, jostled and uncomfortable. I will avoid the plane at all costs in the future."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "All good."
