Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "If flight took place"
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: "Refreshment service was appallingly slow. We were row 21 and were served with 20 minutes if the flight remaining"
Cons: "Nonexistent leg room. Made me check my carryon bag but did come to reclaim pretty quickly. Couldn’t even get water without a charge."
Pros: "positive crew"
Cons: "delay taking off and landing"
Pros: "This was a connecting flight from London originating from SFO. There were delays after boarding so we departed later. But we survived."
Cons: "We where delayed for just over an hour"
Pros: "All of it we left and landed ahead of time"
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: "Do the upgrade if its available!"
Pros: "Ground staff were excellent, the comfort was acceptable."
Cons: "Entertainment was mediocre, and absence of WiFi on air was disappointing. Not being able to eat food of your choice in business class because it ran out, is not acceptable. Crew were indifferent"
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: "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: "British Airways may be one of my favorite companies I've flown so far. Counter check-in and baggage drop off was friendly and efficient, and was absolutely the easiest I've had in my recent two week travels (where I sadly used 5 different airlines for 7 different flights), if not my overall lifetime of traveling abroad. The crew was friendly, helpful and it was easy to ask them questions. For both the price and the ease of service I would absolutely recommend them again to anyone I know."
Cons: "I flew economy, and I truly miss the days where a drink was included in seats for your flight. But that is so common on all flights of late."
Cons: "This is by far the worst business class experience ever. Really bad. Never seen business seat so tight. 2x4x2 configuration in business is just not acceptable."
Cons: "3 hour delay in flight...they kept us on the plane forever"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I found out as I was entering Nairobi Airport. The British Airways staff at JKIA were clueless regarding what to do with 200 passengers. It was chaotic, with no one appearing to know what options were available. It was a long night, and if my wife had not re-booked me on another flight out, I might still be there. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "British Airways overbooked this flight and made it unclear if I can board my flight. Overbooking is such a greedy behavior and airlines should refrain from engaging in this dubious policy. It is the second time this happens to me with BA."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
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: "Was one hour and 45 minutes late leaving Atlanta for London."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "Didn’t not make it the flight because the Wheelchair took forever to pick us up from there a aircraft"
Pros: "Pilot friendly chat at gate"
Cons: "2 hours to offer food through the plane Slow inefficient payment process Bacon roll served with cold Centre - inadequately cooked after 2 attempts"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."
Pros: "Prop plane but on time with professional staff"
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: "For the back of the bus, the seat was still pretty comfortable and I did manage to sleep. Boarding was easy, The entertainment seemed great, thought I fell asleep"
Cons: "I didnt' manage to get a good seat. I sat in the middle row, last row of the plane. : ) Also, i must have fallen asleep, but I was never offered even a cup of water."
Cons: "No bags included even though I had a connecting flight on the same airline."
Cons: "Unfortunately I am allergic to all the food they offered .I wish the served a plain chicken or plain turkey.Everything was spicy or mixed with a pesto or curry. They need to something that is served completely plain ."
Pros: "Quick lines."
Cons: "I had two reservations that I had linked and even though there was ample time they wouldn't forward my luggage to my next flight, because I booked them at different times."
Cons: "The hour + delay leaving LAX AND DELAY again on landing"
Pros: "the seats on this plane were more comfortable and the crew was friendly, even though there were some irate customers."
Cons: "We boarded late, sat on the plane for more than 2 hours (it was uncomfortably warm) and were told we then had to switch planes due to a mechanical problem. I understand this happens, but for the inconvenience BA should give some sort of compensation. After the long wait we were starving, but they ran out of all of the food choices. We were scheduled to arrive at 16:30 but ended up arriving after 22:00. this wasted our first night of our vacation in Rome. There was one passenger in particular who was yelling, swearing and causing a scene because of the flight delay. His rude behavior was rewarded with an upgrade to first class. The message this sends to your passsengers is that we should all be loud and obnoxious when problems arise. I was not impressed with my first experience with BA."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "The secure boarding area at Heathrow was nice. I haven't seen that before."
Cons: "No free refreshments; water would be nice. No line control during boarding - people merging in all over the place."
Pros: "Waited on us hand and foot! Every crew member I had contact with was super nice and professional. Would definately reccommned!!!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Late departure and inefficient gate service. Seats very uncomfortable. Food was inedible. Otherwise, had a great time."
Pros: "Staff are all great. No fuss and every thing on time."
Cons: "It's economy class and always cramped. Standards slipping in the toilets a little. Seats are getting worn. The entertainment choice could be better. Food quality has also gone down"
Cons: "overall service and inflight entertainment"
Cons: "we're professional musicians who fly all the time with fragile equipment. the airline applied an overweight baggage fee (fair enough, normally) but their payment system was down. rather than waive the fee, we were made to wait an hour to pay 150 euros. after scrambling through security we narrowly missed our flight. rebooking took hours and involved going back through security all over again, having our equipment searched for the second time. when it came time to gate-check our guitars, the airline lost them. we wound up boarding our connection to JFK with no idea where they were. finally they turned up on the baggage belt. we would never and have never agreed to send these delicate items through general baggage. One guitar (50 year old gintage guitar) was broken in the process and another of our hard cases was damaged and needs to be replaced. Completely unacceptable from start to finish."
Pros: "Seats great"
Cons: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on an international flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). We will NEVER use KAYAK again."
Pros: "Food on board was tasty"
Cons: "Priority boarding not clear."
Pros: "Flight was pretty smooth"
Cons: "Seats allocated"
Cons: "Last flight of the night always running late"
Pros: "Everything except ridiculous baggage fee"
Cons: "The fee to pay when I was forced to check-in a carry on size small piece of luggage. 52 euros is a bit insane. I do not mind paying a fee, but that amount is insane"
Pros: "I landed alive"
Cons: "No information about the gate until you have tk run across the airport to board"
Pros: "leg room, crew and flight comfort inc access to toilets was better than BA! (No business class hogging the front toilet)"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and crowded, and flight was from a remote gate which is always less comfortable than an air-bridge much worse than BA"
Cons: "Nothing, the price is great and I would take a cheaper price for the flight over free drinks and food anyday"
Cons: "They forced us to check our carry on baggage and then they lost a sandal which was attached to our backpack. The seats didn’t recline at all. The flight was late."
Pros: "The crew were super friendly and could not be more helpful. It was a 2/3rds full flight, so no squabbles over baggage."
Cons: "I pay for easyJet Plus and it should mean my bag comes up first, but it was one of the last."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Less line to check in"
Pros: "Good price, friendly stuff, no hiccups at all"
Cons: "If they can give us a glass of water"
Pros: "The ground staff who helped my mother were just amazing. So kind and considerate"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Pros: "Boarding flowed well. Good flight, helpful staff."
Cons: "Left a little late but made good time. A positive experience."
Cons: "3 hours late and very little information. No refreshments provided."
Cons: "Luggage payment check in and boarding is too slow and inefficient"
Cons: "They overbooked our flight, sold our tickets and we didn’t get on standby. We had to wait in the airport for 8 hours for another flight because of this."
Cons: "The announcements regarding gate # and on time/delay kept changing until actual boarding, so was very confusing as the gates were on different levels. Once on the flight, I asked a young female attendant to help me put my heavy suitcase in the overhead bin and was surprised when she declined(I'm 72)"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarkation"
Cons: "Poor seat pitch. But only a half hour flight so wasn’t really a bother."
Cons: "No delays!"
Cons: "More than one hour delay"
Cons: "Better organization at boarding"
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent"
Cons: "8 hours in the air."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Was delayed by one hour due to fog (not airlines fault, but a nuisance nonetheless)"
Pros: "On time. Price."
Cons: "No vegan food just crisps or alcohol"
Pros: "Fast easy hoarding. Friendly staff"
Pros: "Great crew and captain. Great communication skills and clear instructions"
Cons: "Plane delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Male flight attendant on Easyjet physically hurt me, invading my personal space multiple times and touching me while I slept. Under NO circumstances is it appropriate for flight attendants to physically jab at passengers, especially given the power imbalance in this case of a white male flight attendants being physically inappropriate with women of color passengers. I will not be flying with Easyjet again and will tell everyone I know of my experience with Easyjet's physically invasive, inappropriate staff."
Pros: "Not much. I think anything we liked was about the airport staff, not the easy jet staff. The customer service lady was efficient, but not helpful and kind of rude and all she kept saying was “well everyone else made it”. The plane was also not full (I believe she said 60 people, maybe 58 not including us)."
Cons: "The plane was departing at 8:25 and boarding at 7:55 according to the ticket. At 7:57 there was no gate announced for the flight yet, so we went to the bathroom, came out and saw our gate and headed there. We got the gate wrong, but were only about 5 mins out of the way, so me and my 70 year old grandmother ran through the terminals and we got to the correct gate at 8:16 (less than 20 minutes from the time the gate was announced) and they would not let us on. Easy Jet’s policy (which we have a picture of) is that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure, but we did not even have a gate until less than 20 minutes from the departure. We did not hear them announce our names or last call (until the minute before we got there, and it did not seem like if they would have let us on if we were one minute earlier either). After this whole ordeal and being at the airport on time and through security in time, we went to talk to the check-in person to see what we should do. We stood in line and did not get called up (3 people did not have customers but were not calling me up), so I asked and one girl reluctantly said I could see her. As I was telling her what happened, she got a phone call, answered it in the middle of my explanation, and then chatted for a few minutes with another coworker about who was working and who was going on lunch when. After she hung up, she looked annoyed at me, and I told her again what happened, and she said she could help and to go to customer service. At customer service, we asked to see if we could get on the next flight which wasn’t leaving for over 7.5 hours, which they said we could but would have to purchase our tickets and luggage all over again. The person working was mostly professional, fairly efficient, but pretty callous overall. On top of all this, when they pulled our luggage off the flight (somehow they can board a flight of 60 ish people and still have time to remove our luggage), they pulled one of the wrong suitcases off so we had to go collect our luggage at or destination, and someone else went luggage-less. Ultimately, my grandmother’s first European trip and this was the worst experience we’ve had so far, but after $200, 6 hours, and tears from both of us, we made it to our destination and will never fly Easy Jet again."
Pros: "Very efficient. Staff helpful."
Pros: "Good plane and syaff"
Cons: "Had to pay for food"
Cons: "Extra cost for hold luggage"
Pros: "Efficient, fast, decent legroom as we were on the exit row."
Cons: "No frills. No drinks or snacks. Everything is an extra charge however the flight was super short, so no big deal."
Cons: "Late for 30 min overall, long boarding queue, coffee was so-so"
Pros: "I paid extra for exit row seats (more legroom) and speed boarding, and it was worthwhile."
Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Cons: "Delay due to late arrival then deicing. Food expensive and not much legroom."
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: "The ground crew in Berlin was rude and impolite. They decided to check in our bag for the hold luggage without asking us and ordering us. In comparison the ground crew in Paris asked politely who would like to check in the bags because of a space shortage."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed. No in flight service."
Pros: "Crew and plane were good"
Cons: "Why do they call us to the gate and then stop us from walking to the plane for ages."
Pros: "Very helpful friendly staff would definitely be using them again"
Cons: "I liked the ease of use on the website,once I arrived there friendly staff from start to finish which helped the flight go by so much better"
Pros: "No problems with the flight or boarding."
Cons: "Didn't like the 3 hour 20 minutes delay"
Pros: "Staff were especially helpful at the check-in desk, ushering us straight through as we had three small children."
Cons: "Had to stand even whilst the plane pushed back waiting for staff to deal with fitting a child seat for the row in front that ultimately they were unable to achieve. At no point, even after they had failed to fit the seat, did they say it was ok for me or two of my children to sit back down. All attention was on the passengers they were dealing with directly."
Pros: "speed of flight and friendliness of the cabin crew"
Pros: "Was inexpensive. Very friendly staff. Easy trip"
Pros: "Flight crew was kind and helpful"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "No agua"
Pros: "Although there was a delay, the staff were as friendly and helpful as can be. They kept us posted throughout. Boarding was carried out super quick. Flight staff were very friendly and had been delayed themselves and working extra hours for us"
Cons: "4 hours or more delay - will be claiming compensation and hope they will do the right thing and not give trouble with compensation"
Pros: "I had the window."
Cons: "Wish I was told up front that I essentially had no seat. Wouldn't have booked it. Price not worth the stress of having to figure out last minute accommodations. Even though I had accommodations in a different location. Having to wait to be last to know if I was boarding was miserable. Justine honest with customers from the onset."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly flight attendants. Quick check in. The APP worked great for our boarding passes."
