check-in in Manchester even after doing Verifly took over an hour which is ridiculous. 2 members of the check-in staff were not wearing masks and one was wiping her nose with her hand and then handling passports. The flight was late again.
We went Economy, all 4 of us and the flight was pleasant and the crew was attentive. Its an older airplane, but well updated and the crew was super attentive.
Pros: "My trip had two legs, Austin to Heathrow and Heathrow to Riyadh. The crew from Heathrow to Riyadh were great. I wish I could say the same about the crew from Austin to Heathrow."
Cons: "Overall, the flight was fine. My comments are relative to BA 1st class. At best, I would rate it in the middle of the business class flights I've flown on other airlines. There is nothing about the experience that is actually 1st class from a separate lounge, to boarding, to in flight meals. The seats on my planes were worse than Turkish Airlines Business class (among many others). Storage around the seat is also FAR worse than other airlines products,even in business class. I had taken the same flights in November and 95-98% of the entertainment options were the same. There were, maybe, 2 new movies and 2-3 new documentaries/TV shows. The in seat charger only worked on one leg. Several meal options were "sold out." Mediocre at best."
Cons: "Too long to get luggage off plane"
Pros: "Speed boarding and organized overall. Nice crew."
Cons: "Error on kayak.com resulted in me losing approx. £600 and having to take the issue to the small claims court."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "On a 4 hour flight Offer snacks and water without charge. Children were screaming the entire flight. The crew stood in the back reading magazines instead of checking if people needed more drinks."
Pros: "Everything was fairly mediocre..."
Cons: "They lost my ski bag! I had PLENTY of time between connecting flights and to not have my ski bag show up at my final destination (Munich - which was also a British Airways flight) was pretty bad. This set me back 4 hours after I've already been traveling for 20 hours! BOOO"
Cons: "It was a delta flight"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Entertainment system needed rebooting and then lost volume so was not available for about half an hour"
Pros: "Did not get my luggage"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Comfortable on plane. Pleasnt crew"
Cons: "Boarding could be bettet done.. .miss the free drink"
Pros: "Tight in ecomony. Aisle seats are bad I was hit the entire flight."
Cons: "Seats not the best"
Pros: "A more organized boarding. There was no one to assist when we arrived at the airport to check in and no one to guide us as to which line to go to when boarding. It is difficult being organized on our own in an environment which include cultures lacking organization or being considerate. All food required purchase. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Crew needs to be more educated regarding disabilities such as head injury. Recovering from a concussion obtained when a car hit me while I was walking, but still sensitive to things such as light and noise. When asked to open the shade while landing there was a hesitation but at least they allowed me to leave the shade down at my window for this portion of the flight."
Cons: "Rerouted due to a cancellation"
Pros: "Direct flight to Austin"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Cons: "very very short layover at London, had to run to the gate and almost didn’t make it. Only one of our two bags made it to Dublin. Not happy at all. Not sure if I will be booking with kayak again."

Pros: "Check in too long for drop off bag otherwise quick boarding, flight early and bagage delivered very quickly"
Pros: "Because of you he delayed flight from Los Angeles they gave us a new one to Milan which arrived on n Linate instead of Malpensa two hours after my scheduled trip. Not nice"
Cons: "Just the room and comfortableness of the economy class seating"
Pros: "Flight attendants were to top in the industry. Caring and caring. They are the face of your airline. Give them the right tools, they function well. I could not have been treated better as a Frequent traveler."
Cons: "Reservation process online does not show you that you are buying a bullshit Business Class seat. You pay a premium for Business class and granted, the meal was great, something the Coach class did not get BUT they should tell you when booking that that you are sitting in coach with a table blocking the middle seat, not truly a Business class seat. Dumb down your operations but don't insult your customers. Tell them what they are getting when booking a bus type business class seat. Worst business practice ever, driven by European style of travel BUT call it premium economy, not BUSINESS."
Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."
Cons: "Took 2 hours 20 mins to be offered in flight catering on a 2 hour 30 min flight. Next time will be bringing my own food and drink."
Cons: "It took 1 hour to get a glass of water"
Pros: "There is nothing to like. I paid for three return tickets from Amsterdam to London. My family and I were at airport and couldn't get on the flight. Even return trip wasn't honored. I made a mistake by choosing this carrier and would never do this or even recommend British Airline to anyone. . What disaster."
Pros: "Great entertainment system, and good food. Thank you for the free wine, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Seats in the back are very uncomfortable. Seats are too close together. If the passenger in front reclines there is no room at all. I assume space was taken out to accommodate the first class cubes."
Pros: "Plane was nice"
Cons: "Didn't get food order correct"
Pros: "BA is offering a very mediocre product. All feels safe, clean & curteous, but inferior to Middle Eastern airlines & the likes of SAA & Qantas."
Cons: "The food is really nothing special and has dropped in quality to the quality that you can expect on North American Airlines."
Pros: "Great crew, loaded early, smooth flight, landed early"
Cons: "Felt abused with petty charges. Charged for WATER- even those peanut packs were not free. Checked luggage fees were up to 100 British pounds per bag. Legroom was barely OK. Entertainment was a decade old system. Not a good value."
Cons: "Delayed at airport for takeoff Extra baggage fee (outrageously expensive) Non complementary water on aircraft Slow baggage return at destination airport"
Pros: "Very upscale aircraft, Polite staff and overall nice flight."
Pros: "Everything was first-rate"
Cons: "The inflight movie service is, in our opinion, worthless because of the noise. If you had closed captions available that would work."

Cons: "Online check-in was not possible, neither on ba.com nor on aer lingus (flight was operated by aer lingus). I had not possibility to choose a seat. I called are lingus consumers services who said this was due to the fact, that I had a BA booking. At the airport I was told most seat were pre-reservered. There was no indication during the booking process that this might be the case. The plane was rather small, with litte space. I am rather small person and had difficulties."
Pros: "Very roomy plane (borrowed from the long-haul fleet). Friendly crew, with plenty of updates about the delay."
Cons: "45min delay due to computer problem at TXL"
Pros: "My 2-year-old son accidentally pressed the flight attendant button twice in his seat and once in the bathroom, but I didn't get yelled at by the flight attendants. I really appreciated that."
Cons: "One of my pieces of luggage was lost, but it arrived about 4 days later. It came back in perfect condition, which is great."
Pros: "On time and nice."
Pros: "On time, clean on the plane."
Cons: "Air line was fine but there was a big queue for security for everyone at the airport, was slow going through there, probably took at least half an hour. Only got to gate just before closing as did other passengers on the flight. A member of staff near the gate was impatiently telling people to hurry up but we could n't help being delayed at the security check."
Cons: "Get rid of the nickel and diming!"
Cons: "Seats are really small and stick together, super uncomfortable for more than 2h"

Pros: "Am very upset with how I got treated"
Cons: "Paid GBP 26.99 to be able to take with me my carry-on that was refused by a groundstaff standing outside and informing me she determined what would happen. Bad bad experience and paying GBP 26,99 for nothing is a real shame"
Pros: "crews are efficient and polite"
Pros: "On time, friendly, polished,"
Cons: "No offer of any refreshment"
Pros: "Overall Easyjet is an ok airline, I will continue to fly with them, however, small things like paying extra for speedy boarding and then not having a separate line is a real disappointment. Given the option I would pay a the extra to fly with a better airline, however, being from Northern Ireland we are limited to what we can have."
Pros: "It was horrible we was delayed 40 minuets originally to then be told we was going to be delayed another 3 hours"
Cons: "Because when we needed information about the delay and when we could leave the airport no one could give us any information"
Cons: "Delayed for 90 minutes"
Cons: "Everything. Ends up costing me ½ day of work around £500"
Pros: "Airport restaurants would have been nice...without the overcrowding"

Pros: "Plane boarded early and took off on time but landed 15 minutes early fantastic as I caught an earlier but that i thought I would get"

Cons: "It was cancelled and we were left to book alternative flights and hotels."
Pros: "The way Boarding was arranged."
Cons: "Time management was poor"

Pros: "Long Queue at Stanstead but got through quickly. Boarding easy. Had a wine, chicken baguette and crisps - good. Good conversation with next passenger"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Very aggressive requirement to pack my small headphone bag into an already cramped carry on suitcase. It too three tries! Silly really cos it all flew anyway!"
Pros: "It got me to Naples."
Cons: "The flight was late taking off by an hour, we received messages that it was going to be late, but by only ten minutes. Even at the desk, a long line formed at the original boarding gate, before we were told that the gates were chaning to one at the other end of the building. Then made to queue at the gate for half an hour, then sat in the plane for an hour. Plus on top of that it was from Stansted which is the worst aiport."
Pros: "Crew always good."
Cons: "Delays, flight called way ahead of actual boarding and long delay getting off flight and in to terminal."
Pros: "absolutely nothing..."
Cons: "The stewardesses lost control of a rowdy, ugly British drinking crowded plane - with liquor bottles being passed through the plane.....and at the end of the flight, the pilot had to abort a landing and scream at the clients to get in their seats and belt up or he wouldn´t land. I have never been as scared or insulted as I was on this flight...and will NEVER fly on easy jet or from Stansted again....."
Cons: "Basic low-fare, no frills flight."
Pros: "Easy bag drop off, checkin, boarding. No entertainment but at the price didn't matter. Early boatding , plane left exactly on time."
Cons: "No communication- the app told us more than they were willing to"
Pros: "The price was great and we coordinated our luggage and carry-ons to comply with the rules that we found on-line. But that turned out to be useless."
Cons: "However, when we arrived to check our bags, there was a completely different set of rules and the baggage reservation that i purchased online did not show on the computer. My receipt on my phone didn't mean a thing to them. It was stressful opening and re packing our bags to comply. I couldn't even carry on my purse if i wanted to bring on a carry-on bag. My husband could not bring his briefcase as well as his backpack."
Pros: "crew was nice kept us informed about delay"
Cons: "posted it was an hour late then immediately called us for final boarding everyone had to rush to the gate. then we sat on the tarmac for an hour."
Pros: "It did what it said on the tin -- cheap, no frills, polite staff."
Cons: "Flight due at 1550. At 1500 boards said now boarding. The plane hadn't even landed! Kept waiting over an hour in airless crowded room with no seats. Silly notices about wonderful easyJet service on screen added to insult. Eventually took off 1625. Crew said sorry for 10 minute delay - actually 35 minutes."

Cons: "The coffe was expensive and tasted very bad. The crew was not nice at all They charge me 2 suitcases.. Because my small one didn't fit (I bought it as a hand bag) This was the first time I flew with easy jet and clearly the last one.. I've had excellent experiences with all the others companies."
Pros: "Hassle free boarding. Flight was very comfortable with a very smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "No on board entertainment"
Pros: "No issues getting on flight pretty straight forward."
Cons: "Drunk and loud people on the flight."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Check in was a complete disaster. I only needed to check my suitcase as we had our boarding passes already. It was anarchy and we nearly missed our flight despite being there hours early purely because the check in procedure was so chaotic. Then to top it off, my bag was lost and I was given a stranger’s baggage tag. I don’t know how they will be able to trace my bag with this. It is currently missing in action. Great start to a long awaited holiday!"
Cons: "Delays, with poor comms. After advising of delays, they called us to form queues at the gate, but it was more than 1.5 hours before we started boarding. That’s 1.5 hours standing in line with no communication! No apologies from staff, and when we did start boarding a member of staff was so annoyed at some passengers who we’re in the wrong queue that they called out to the entire queue, (quote) ‘the little baby Jesus is sending you a sign so look to the heavens and you’ll see a sign which says priority to the left and non-priority to the rigjt, ok?’ Again, this is after keeping us queuing with no apologies and no refreshments for 1.5 hours. In all, we were three hours delayed, and not one member of staff even mentioned it. Staff on board were really poor also: huffing and rolling their eyes at passengers ordering food. Genuinely shocking service."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Take off delayed by over 3 hours, poor communication,noisy boisterous passengers."
Cons: "Delayed at Stansted due to Donald Trump"
Pros: "Cabin crew remained calm and polite"
Cons: "Almost 3 hrs late, and no communication from Ryanair a all (on board and trackers as on time until already 30 minutes post planned departure time, got us all on board an hour late ajd made us sit there for another 90 minutes without any communication fo an hour, no water or snacks etx (30 degrees that day)"
Pros: "The price of the flight was fair. I had booked 4 days in advance and overall the seat was comfy, leg room was good and flight crew okay and apologetic about the delays."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by nearly an hour. The boarding staff member was rather rude and loved talking about how much Ryanair always delayed at the moment, which I felt was odd to be bragging about how the company you're working for isn't performing well and my suitcase was damaged and now has a rather large hole in its side"
Pros: "Best Ryanair flight I have been on. We'll organized from start to finish"
Pros: "Great job! Timely departure and arrival, quick, uncomplicated and easy boarding, pleasant staff."
Pros: "No frills basic flight, works perfectly for short flights."
Cons: "Coming back to cold weather"
Pros: "I liked that I got a seat on the plane and it didn't fall out of the sky"
Cons: "Stansted Airport was just a complete shambles. Ryanair used a gate thhar had almost no seating and the flight left 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Nothing although crew were friendly"
Cons: "3 hour delay in both directions this week. No announcements made about delay. Gates changed 2x. Poor communication throughout. Email from Ryanair about cancellation/refund options received AFTER flight. Got home at 1 am. Truly horrible experience"
Pros: "We managed to arrive."
Cons: "I disliked the lack of information about the delays, the poor facilities and extremely rude staff. It’s understandable that they’ve been working all day, but unfortunately this is the job they chose and I am paying for service of which I should be satisfied with."
Cons: "As usual with ryan air it's all about the cash. Missed my flight because of lip balm and a baggage check and then when I asked for help. They basically did nothing. I will never fly with you again. Luckily managed to get a B.A flight for £95.00 the same day and Ryan air wanted £413.00"
Cons: "Stansted airport is very poor. Not enough space, facilities or anything. Ryanair flight delayed. “Boarded” into cramped holding area. Very poor form."
Pros: "With Ryanair, you can only really like the price and the people. To be fair though, m the toilet was clean.."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7.30 am, but was still refueling after an earlier flight at that time. In a way it was lucky that it was late; if it had been in time, we would have been queueing on the Stansted tarmac in the rain. As it was, the rain had just stopped while we waited at the foot of the aircraft stairs. We actually took off 45 mins late. The new, additional-cost priority boarding is a joke: almost everyone was a "priority". Several passengers didn't understand the long "priority" queue, so joined it only to be turned away at check-in."
Pros: "Boarding was by bus but worked out ok."
Cons: "Chaos over seating families together, one family of two adults and two infants got moved twice, another family was moved once due to allocated seating not putting families together. We eventually offered our seats to try and help out which eventually the reluctant crew accepted. Emergency exits row passenger was allowed to keep their handbag and another had a plastic bag under their seat. (Regulations state no bags at emergency exits). One passenger was chatting using his mobile phone during taxi out. Captain having exited the flight deck for a break then opened the cockpit door and whilst remained open then proceeded to have a nice chat with the cabin crew. Crew were having a bad day. Food was over cooked and nasty. Seat comfort apauling no elbow room and no legroom, still as Ryanair say you only get what you pay for whereas I’d rather have value for money rather than just a cheap and nasty experience."
Pros: "It was a cheap flight. Crew on board was ok."
Cons: "Plane arrived at Stansted late. The queues were horrendous and not clearly marked. One of the ground staff was very rude to an Indian lady who only asked if it was the correct queue to be in. Perhaps the customer was Indian born and the ground staff was British born of Indian descent? Flight arrived late to destination by about 30mins."
Cons: "Everything about Ryanair"
Cons: "Needed to catch connecting flight after Milan to Liverpool flight .. which was Liverpool to Belfast.. already delayed couple days due to weather.. long story short - they put tags on bags to put in hold which meant I wouldn’t catch connecting to Belfast as I’ve have to wait at carousel (Dublin not operating due to snow) , explained my story that I needed to catch this flight in order to have any chance of making uncles funeral but she completely ignored it, and said that’s not my problem!! Couldn’t believe my ears.. Disgusting behavior"
Pros: "Prompt take off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "Slow baggage recovery due to automation and a small carousel"
Cons: "Notification of flight cancellation even though the flight departed on twitter. Flight should have been cancelled as no transport links to Dublin Airport due to adverse weather."
Pros: "The Price of the flight that was all."
Cons: "Very unorganized no idea about time scheduling boarding right up until take off and then spent nearly a further hour trying to get off of the run way. No reason given just blamed ground staff at the airport no apology felt very unprofessional. Should of made me effort explaining why we were delayed had to cancel plans as we were nearly an hour later than taking off was planned."
Cons: "The rest especially the quick boarding ( 1h30 to wait )"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Thę policy to make sure you do not sit with your family and have to buy seats to make sure you are all sitting together. The salaries of the staff are the worst in the industry."
Cons: "We boarded after the time it was supposed to take off and once in Barcelona we had to wait about 25 minutes to collect our bags."
Pros: "Well to get in the plane we were waiting almost 1 hour, and now that am writting you waiting again 1 hour for the baggage . I will never again flight with this company never again"
Pros: "I was by myself with a toddler, a pram and 2 hand baggage. down"
Cons: "I thought the would take at least one of them at the gate as usual and I asked if they could help with pram and they said NO! It was a nightmare I had to go down a lot stairs. The only person that helped me it was an old lady! This is a rubbish service I won’t reccomend to anyone with kids!"
Pros: "Nice staff, flight was fine"
Cons: "Extras are ridiculous and couldn’t pay through the website so stressed about getting on the flight. Exorbitant cost of carrying a bottle of wine"
Pros: "all airline staff caring and helpful"
Pros: "Late incoming aircraft. Delayed boarding as we were told that there was a wait for an assistant to facilitate the boarding of a passenger using a wheelchair."
Pros: "The worst service in my life If I can I will be give 0"
Cons: "Rubbish service Never again"
Pros: "Chatting with fellow passengers in the queue"
Cons: "Lack of regular information regarding delays. Even the occasional "we still have no updates" would have been helpful."
Pros: "The crew and polo te where very helpful and the plan e arrived on time."
Cons: "Everything was good!!"
Cons: "The Lithuanian crew team was far too casual. Service as well. Informal."
Cons: "Was freeze/cold inside .."
Pros: "The crew were quick and efficient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we had to stand outside on the tarmac in the freezing cold for about twenty minutes before we were allowed to board."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for everything!"
Pros: "Great price to Pisa. I was asleep the entire flight so I didn't suffer too much from the seating"
Cons: "Lack of seating in boarding area"
Pros: "great service, no turbulence"
Cons: "delayed by an hour which we only found out about when we went to the gate."
Pros: "Getting home so fast"
Cons: "Unrespectulful customer"
Pros: "Fast boarding. I exchanged place with a stranger with no problem ."
Cons: "There's not a lot of space for your legs but that's an airplane problem and not really ryanair only. They took off the little basket space from the seat in front of you so you have nowhere to put away your stuff which is very annoying. You have ton pay for everything on board, absolutely nothing is free and it's ridiculously expensive."
Pros: "The flights are good value and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Due to mass cancellations we had days worrying if we were able to go on holiday our holiday or get the return flight home. They got the planes at the wrong gates so our flights were delayed for and hour, a passenger being sick very close to us was not moved away into a quieter area of the plane. Our luggage was damaged when we picked it up."
Pros: "Ok, it's cheap, but added extras take the shine off this."
Cons: "To check in I was forced to book seats both ways, then had to pay extra on top of original price to pick the seats. There were a few spare seats on the flight so it wasn't a case of overbooked."
Pros: "Crew were competent and happy, not overworked, dour or dim."
Cons: "Big queues to board, followed by bus transfer to plane => first ones to stand in line at the last ones off the bus to board the plane. My fault really, but why encourage people to stand in a queue for 30 mins at all?"
Pros: "Paying for the extras to make my journey as better for me"
Cons: "Selling of the scratch cards and cabin crew asking everyone row by row for change for €20."
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't go"
