Pros: "The seating configuration. Complementary drinks."

Pros: "Flight and on board service was fine"
Cons: "It is not acceptable when arriving at the recommended time, at a major airport, with a major airline, to find no desks open. We checked in online but our passes “could not be issued”.

Pros: "Staff very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Because some of the passengers had not booked in online they were selected to be admitted from fight if takeoff problems occurred. Apparently there was a problem due to high wind gusts in taking off from Florence but information was very minimal and not displayed to passengers. People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"
Pros: "The crew is always incredible"

Cons: "Called me a no show even though I was there."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, staff was delightful, flight was early arrival, everything was super."
Cons: "We arrived with 3 hours before our flight, as recommend for International travel. But we were not allowed to check our bags until 9:50 AM. We waited on line for almost 2 hours! If we had been told of this restriction we could have gone to a lounge to relax. Instead we waited a long time on foot."
Pros: "Stuff happens outside of the company's control and the inbound flight was an hour late due to crew absence. We were kept informed along the way and we boarded 55 minutes later than expected. However I couldn't have wanted for a better inflight service. Charming helpful and effective."
Cons: "Having to wait for the delayed flight."
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "There were no gluten-free food options, not even an apple, so no food for us."

Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."
Pros: "Aircraft was excellent LCY is very convenient Price was very competitive for most trips"
Cons: "BA is BA, Better than low cost guys but not LH Sometimes prices are high, with coach being higher than Club."
Cons: "Flight was fine LCY Worked very well. You are BA I DO NOT WANT TO BE NICKLE AND DIMED TO TAKE LUGGAGE. Yare not Ryan Air. If there is a charge make it clear when I buy the ticket. I do not expect to have to tell BA to grow up."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Small planes have better nicer seats and more leg room"
Cons: "Massive delay due to snow, no vouchers given until flight was cancelled (and it was all closed). Only updates were via BA app or email. Next day flight also delayed, and again delays communicated only via app or email (not at signs at airport)"
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."
Cons: "City Airport crowded and overly commercialised. Rip-off prices."
Cons: "Bad service, messed up booking, change me to the last row at boarding, I can keep going"
Pros: "Service good on board"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"
Cons: "The boarding process was like a Third World country. The flight was fine, the flight attendants were lovely, but the boarding process was ridiculous. Nobody in the gate area knew which gate it was leaving from or what time it was leaving, it was quite delayed, finally it was posted to start boarding at five minutes after the departure time and instead, when everyone looked up, people were boarding 10 minutes before that. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Free food and drink remains on City flights. Convenience of City."
Cons: "Long flight. No entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. They could not have been MORE pleasant. Really great staff, loved them. Even the captain or pilot was great, made announcements to keep us up to date on the arrival and explained everything clearly."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food was okay. It wasn't bad or anything, just okay."
Pros: "Boarded on Time"
Cons: "Flight took off but the plane was faulty. We landed an hour after take off waited in a room with no air conditioning for over an hour with no updates. After 3 hours after the flight was supposed to leave they cancelled the flight. Very poor and very disappointed!"
Pros: "Lucky enough that the flight was half empty so there was space for the passengers, the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was from Faro in July excesseding temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius outside, while inside was a an absolute freezer, not more than 15/16 degrees inside. I had to change cloathing mid flight cus I couldn't deal with the cold air anymore. On previous flight from London stansted to fato was exactly the same, and there wasn't any difference, we asked if we could turn off the aircon, no answer was given, neither warm covers were provided since the air was so cold. The flight attendant was female, by the name tag was "Praya" was somewhat a bit insensitive, but I realised after that she was as unfortunate as we were cus she was wearing a short sleeve shirt part of uniform, and experiencing the same as the rest of the passengers. The temperature issue caused the flight to be extremely unpleasant."
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 refused to hang my wedding dress, because I was not flying business class, so I had to shove it in the overhead. The were half hour late boarding. my "hot" meal was cold. They did not load my luggage on to the plane. I checked my bags two and a half hours before the flight time to go from Santorini Greece to Glasgow Scotland. Apparently it in three hours, since the plane was a half hour late boarding, they could not manage to load my luggage before take off."
Pros: "Glenlivet whisky for free"
Cons: "2h late!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, early arrival"
Cons: "If I weren't super hungover"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew, good food"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "Extremely poor timing and communication. Departed over 2hr late and missed landing to the correct airport by 10 mins and so had to divert to an airport an hour away with poor coordination"
Pros: "Great crew and flight"
Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"
Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."
Pros: "Fantastic crew and food reasonable for plane food. Air blowers didn't work. But all in all I had a comfortable flight. Don't like layout of Heathrow - everyone super nice but bus rides between terminals cost me 30-40 minutes having to go through security again. I understand the need but would be nice if flights came and left from same terminals where possible."
Cons: "The entertainment screen stopped working mid way through the 9+ hour flight. Plane was older. The head rests were weird - they weren't flexible so hard to hold in place."
Pros: "Good food good crew flight was good"
Cons: "While in London not good experience for old people especially if wheel chair assembly and to get AA airline birding pass is very confused need to b more in comfortable"
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."
Pros: "BA crews are always great. Also excellent that they don’t have those annoying M&S menus on LCY flights. I don’t object to paying, but it just slows everything down."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and food and drink good as on most flight to and from City Airport. Seats very comfortable compared to main fleet. City Flyer is still worth paying the extra which most flight by main fleet ex Heathrow or Gatwick are not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding not great as we were kept waiting in a hot bus outside the aircraft for 15 minutes"
Pros: "Comfortable short hop"
Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "Everything was okay"
Pros: "Par from below the flight was great as always"
Cons: "CSD was rude and not nice to his fellow staff member in economy. Small delay but not a common thing"
Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Cons: "2 Hour Delay"
Cons: "Flight LCY-ZRH (19:35-22:10) departed delayed by >1h, we had to wait in boarding staircase standing with 9mth old baby for 45mins. Due to late take-off we were too late to land in ZRH as runway had already closed. Diverted to Stuttgart, where no BA staff was on the ground to deal with and all services had already closed (~00:30). Basically ~50 customers were dumped at a place they didn’t want to be and no info on his BA wanted to deal with it was given. After 1 week still no info on compensation. And this wants to be a major carrier?"
Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"
Cons: "increasingly reducing space. person sitting next to me overweight and made it uncomfortable for me during the entire trip."
Pros: "Flight was pretty good."
Cons: "Check in was very slow an staff was not very helpful."
Cons: "For some reason we were boarded and ready to go and only then did they think to send for a de-icer. A 40 minute delay on a 1 hour flight. At the other end we then had to wait 20 mins to get off."
Cons: "Flight canceled want able to rebook"
Pros: "staff friendly."
Cons: "seat broken, screen broken. When fixed the choice of movies was very limited. In seat power not working, so couldn't work after battery exhausted. Flight attendants were all friendly but didn't respond to call button or other requests."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Late catering delayed flight. Fix ground services."
Pros: "Simple flight left later than expect but arrived earlier than scheduled. Leg room was plenty and not like other airline where you feel packed like sardines."
Cons: "Nothing so far just a shame my luggage was damaged."
Cons: "Boarding at Gate E46 was disorganised both in timing ans execution. We were told on checkin that boarding would be early and it was late, closer to the original estimated time and then the order of boarding, parents with kids, then ExecClub and Business, and then others was ignored..."
Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to a family emergency. The only way I could get a “partial” refund was to pay another $700. Makes no sense. I already paid over $1000 for tickets and you want me to give you another $700 in order to give me a refund."
Cons: "Food, but surprised that they served anything!"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time! Comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "The seats on these flights are poor. As well as being narrow, there are bars on either side that dig in to your sides. My ongoing one hour domestic flight had more comfortable seats. Fod choice poor. Chicken Curry or Cheese/Tomato Lasagna. If I want a vegetarian meal I'll order one beforehand. Give me two meat options. This isn't the first time I've noticed this. Is it cost cutting? Seems like it to me. Not impressed."
Pros: "When it got going, a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The delay was longer than the flight, although not necessarily BA's fault."
Pros: "I had purchased an upgrade to economy plus --- it was great--- much more expensive than I had thought, but I was tired and wanted to try to rest. There I was greeted with champagne, a warm wash cloth and fabulous service by the two male crew members!!! Truly the best! I am almost 70 and I wear hearing aids--- one helped me with my chair and answered my questions .... I felt VERY taken care of/- I was just one row after the business class with the wall ahead on right side of plane, nice leg room and a nice seat mate I am happy for the chance to respond as I was happy I had decided for the upgrade------------even though I had purchased an upgrade for my flight over to Barcelona only to find out on the day of check in that my flight was cancelled----- but that is when I called British Air and a lovely representative named Beth Duncan spent over 2 hours on the phone with me---- finally getting me on Iberia in order to get to my family reunion------ So....... on two occasions during this trip to my sister's house British Air was just wonderful and I thank you very much------- at the end of our flight one of the men made arrangements for me to get to go upstairs and look at the upper deck as I had never done that before------- as as retired teacher that was fun to see Thank you so much!!!"
Pros: "Attendance were friendly and helpful and courteous. The plane was clean and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and service was excellent"

Cons: "The check in people' rudeness, awful food, slow service"
Pros: "Great equipment, fantastic service and punctual."
Pros: "Food good and very attentive and friendly Cabin crew Amanda made the flight a pleasure."

Cons: "Entertainment on the flight and also seats condition"
Pros: "Seating and spacious cabin."
Cons: "Bus at GVA to furthest possible parking spot."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "The worst waiting for a boarding pass I ever seen.2 priority lines and a bag drop line and a check in line.both for ba 1 for city airport and the other for Gatwick at the same time.choas."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "London/Heathrow arrivals had us going to gate A and through all the security and then we found after going through the security check (1 hr) we saw that the gate for Flight to Venice was B gates. We are not young people, but we aren't ignorant of travel. There was a lot of running around on our part with a lot of undue stress, when we didn't have to leave the E gates at all. There were no gate assignments posted when we landed until 30 minutes out while we were running back to E gates. There is no excuse for that, except we didn't know til the last minute where we were supposed to go after asking 2 people. Why the second check for security after the states on connecting flights? Is this new?"
Pros: "I have been flying to and from Germany multiple times per year for over ten years and this is the best route that I have ever found. The TXL - LCY route fits my needs perfectly, and the British Airway's flight was impeccable. Exactly how air travel should be."
Cons: "The cost of booking a seat when checking in (if I wished to changed my allocated seat)."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a little rough."
Pros: "The food was half decent, and the entertainment program was good"
Cons: "First flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then they not only forget my bags in London, but then give my seat to someone else on the second flight. Instead of being apologetic in any way, they just ship me to a crappy, tiny seat at the back of the plane. Arrive in Sydney to find they had forgotten to put my bags on the flight, and, despite there being the possibility for them to be aware of this in Singapore, they didn't even have to decency to tell me this had occurred. Despite other customers being told that their bags were missing. All in all, not happy with my experience, and to be honest, I'm dreading my return flight with them"
