Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "old, worn out plane, outdated. Very tight connection in LHR, I made it but my luggage didn't."
Cons: "Missed our connection because of problem w jetway"
Pros: "Nothing British airways was fine"
Cons: "Your website messed up and booked my flight for the wrong month. I booked sept 20 2019 and your site errored out. Eventually it booked the flight but apparently it was for oct 20, 2019 and I couldn’t get a refund because it was through kayak not British airways. I’m never using kayak ever again"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "It took 3 people to check my bag something was wrong with the system ... the airplane was super hot for first half hour or so because there was a problem with air conditioner."
Cons: "Constantly late! Unreliable and missed my connecting flight, AGAIN!!! 4 out of last 10 flights I have had lost luggage. No apology, it’s “just BA”."
Cons: "British Airways did not correctly issue ticket to American Airlines and we have to wait another day before departure. Resulted in my loss of monies on various reservations"
Pros: "Yes but when you offer a blanket deliver a blanket :)"
Cons: "When you offer a blanket or to heat up the food follow through :)"
Pros: "Stress free trip - fine all round"
Cons: "Auto check in wouldn’t recognise passport (YET AGAIN- and not only mine)! Was seated to rear of aircraft and coffee trolly didn’t get to me before ‘seatbelts fastened for landing’ announcement.."
Pros: "the crew was accommodating"
Cons: "i was asked to pay to check in my luggage :("
Pros: "New plane."
Cons: "Plane was late to arrive so we were delayed about 30 min. However we had sufficient notice from BA and KAYAK regarding the changes."
Pros: "All of it we left and landed ahead of time"
Cons: "Extremely unsatisfying, to the point of not wanting to fly BA again. If I had not had previous satisfaction with Kayak on other flights, I might not use it again. They my bags for 3 days and had hideous communication about it. Had no feeling that anyone could be reached about or that anyone cared at all. Late takeoff again. There was an impossible amount of time left under even the best curcumstances, to go from one flight to another, resulting in flight being missed and being sent to another city and losing my money on ground transport that was prepaid. The communication issue is the worst of it all. Massively frustrating."
Cons: "Too hot, meant to arrive 5 mins early but ended up 15 mins late as we sat on the runway for about half an hour without air conditioning."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Couldnt pick seat after checkin. They put me in the middle in the back row even though there were better seats left empty right next to me. baggage would have cost 100 pounds to check. Flight was not exactly cheap at 200 pounds. Will just fly the budget airline next time over british air since. I expect better accomodation for these prices."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The food service was very good. Entertainment choices were abundant and generally good."
Cons: "Reaching our connecting flight. The Bataan death march comes to mind—concourse 3 to 5, oh my! Having got through all the hurdles including incomprehensible up, down, up again down again escalator rides and security pat down for my wife we got to Concourse 5 where we learned our plane was leaving from C gates, but not which C gate. So we looked for directions to C gates. The only signage was for C gates 52 to 57. Common sense would lead one to believe that C gates 1 to 51 existed somewhere in the terminal; but no they do not and not many people are aware that they don’t. There has to be a better way. Perhaps before Brexit becomes a reality you could lean on Germany’s vaunted efficiency to help clean up this nightmare scenario."
Cons: "There was a charg for ALL drinks & food! This made the service process quite long & cumbersome."
Pros: "The attention of the flight attendents. And tht We were on time."
Pros: "I always fly AA but this time was a nightmare"
Cons: "The gate agents put me on a wild goose chase as they made an error on the time of my flight departing. My wife and I were sent to three gates and finally was apologized to by the manager on duty. Our flights were changed for free put we lost 5 hours of travel. My wife started IVF treatment today... and she was uanbale to sleep before her 7am appt ( got home at 3am) Very stressful!!!"
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"
Cons: "Mixed up boarding arrangements, length of time to disembark, being coached to the terminal. ok these add up as stress for business travelers on a deadline for meetings"
Pros: "The video was hilarious Crew were chatty, friendly, but professional Great, clean environment that felt very safe Everything was spiffy"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Can proceed. Must by new tickets from SaS and may miss boat"
Pros: "No one could help. Finnair wouldn’t issue a refund. British Airways were not helpful."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "The dinner was surprisingly good! Movie selection was great and the wine was also surprisingly decent."
Cons: "The economy seats are extremely close together. I'm not a large person 5'6") but my knees were practically touching the seat in front of me. There seems to be an inch or 2 more of space on American carriers, which makes quite a difference on a trans-Atlantic flight."
Pros: "On time and easy."
Cons: "BA have stopped giving free snacks and drinks which was always refreshing and different to other airlines! It set them apart but it's just back to another airline now!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."
Cons: "I know it’s not the fault of this flight, but some idiot decided to check in for their flight, check a bag, and not get on the plane. They had to get their bag off the plane, and it delayed us an hour. We missed our connecting flight in London. Had to spend the night. Not happy!"
Cons: "According yo the kayak app on the moment of booking the flight was going to Heathrow, but it went to Gatwick. In addition, the tariff did not include one checked luggage as shown on the app as well. Really disappointed with my first use of kayak."
Pros: "He was courteous, highly efficient and kind. Also, Captain J. Cook made a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Bread could be more defrost or warm. But cold bread seems a common thing on airlines."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Most of the flight attendants were nice. However, on one flight a couple of them were rude. One made a comment "you are making their job hard". I was sitting across the aisle from my mother who is 80 years old and was getting her entertainment set up since she is technically challenged. I told him that I didn't mean to make his job hard. After that, he then smiled regularly to make up for the comment. Also, one of the flights we had to buy coffee, water, or anything other non-alcohol beverage we wanted to drink. Not sure why on one flight we didn't get free beverage service when all of the other BA flights provided it."
Pros: "I had extra leg room."
Cons: "The TV screen was in a stick and it had been used so much that if I didn't pull it forward all the way it would not stay up. Then when you try to put it down it hits the wall in front of you and doesn't tuck in."
Pros: "Fast boarding and very efficient and welcoming crew members."
Cons: "Nothing to note about the flight. One downside was parking at arrival on Heathrow outside the terminal and having to get a bus."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "British Airways misplaced our luggage for three days, and would give us no further information than "it will arrive soon." So, we were stuck near the local address we had provided in case they called for 2 full days. They refused to give us a more precise time as to when they would be delivered. Well, at one point they did say that they would be delivered at noon, but they weren't. Throughout the entire time waiting for the luggage to be delivered, there was no sense of urgency or concern on the part of British Airways. It seems missing luggage is just Business as Usual at British Airways."
Pros: "Comfortable, great crew and food/drink options, free upgrade. They are the best!"
Pros: "The crew inside the plane was amazing"
Cons: "As soon as i got to the check in window i was informed my flight was delayed and I had planned everything to be on time and since my flight was one hour late it kind messed things up a little bit. It seems that british airlines had a delay on purpose just to have a full flight, i wanted to change seats im a skinny guy and i was seated between TWO BIG people my elbows had to be tucked in all the time"
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Cons: "English airline food. Flight attendant's after shave too strong, started me sneezing every time he walked by."
Pros: "Everything was fine until I ate my breakfast."
Cons: "My special kosher meal cause me to immediately have stomach cramps and estreme nausea - within 20 min of eating it. I had horrible pains and could not use the bathroom due to landing. Upon landing I ran to the use the restroom and the staff promised to keep an eye on my bags. When I exited the bathroom after being violently ill, no one was on the plane except the cleaning staff, and no one was keeping an eye on my bags. I found my purse unzipped. Luckily nothing seems to be stolen. I proceeded to vomit and have food poisoning symptoms the next few hours while waiting for my connecting flight to Rome. I vomited through the entire flight to Rome - no one seemed particularly concerned. No one asked if I needed a hospital. British Air would not take a report about the food poisoning onsite. Nothing was done to help me change my flights to avoid flying so sick or make any helpful suggestions whatsoever."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Late departure and inefficient gate service. Seats very uncomfortable. Food was inedible. Otherwise, had a great time."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "The food was not that good. The crew wasn't smiling at all."
Pros: "Flight from Venice to philly was good besides the fact it was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay"
