Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us.

Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"
Pros: "Quick access to the airport and gates"
Cons: "Free food on board"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "First leg of our trip on British air on a smaller plane with lots of comfort and room. Our 2nd and long leg was on a larger and newer plane. Leg room and room for the tray table was so tight and uncomfortable for a long Flight. Paid extra for end seating and using British air for transfers through Heathrow as an American Air partner. Will try to avoid the extra cost in the future."
Cons: "Food and wheelchair service dropping me off at inappropriate place & no wheelchair to continue through passport control to Heathrow express train"
Pros: "Seats were ok. Crew was friendly, attentive and communicative."
Cons: "Not much in terms of entertainment"
Cons: "This flight was run by American Airlines. A new aircraft and a wonderful crew."
Cons: "Food was horrible"

Pros: "The attitude of crew long ques for toilet"
Cons: "Long queues for toilet"
Cons: "I am a student and my first time to aberdeen. Lost my bagage .. in otherwords did not receive it!!"
Pros: "service was good, food was good"
Cons: "seats were too cramped for such a long flight and I didn't have the resources to upgrade to the next level (not first class, "World Traveler Plus" I think). The seats were also uncomfortable / not padded enough - my tailbone and lower back were very unhappy by the end of the flight"
Cons: "The complete lack of help from BA staff after I missed my flight. No helpful suggestions at all when I asked for guidance. Just 'the flight is closed and there are no more seats left today'."
Pros: "The food was excellent. The service was one of the better ones."
Cons: "The forwyand rear facing business class seating is ok. But the window seats on the 2-3-2 configuration needs so me workout to get in and out. For a large person like me it was cramped and extremely claustrophobic."
Pros: "A pleasant unexpected upgrade to premium economy was very welcomed. seat and food were better"
Cons: "the seat did not recline and thus it was not too comfortable sleeping."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed and missed connection. Ground crew in Rome assured there would be no further delays and connection would be made. Then plane was held on runway for 30 minutes after arriving 1.25 hour late. No complimentary drinks or snacks for a 3 hour flight. Landed 15min before connecting flight departed and was told by crew that a BA representative would be at gate to meet passengers who "missed" connection to LA, but no representative for the LA connection was present (only for other connections) though 20 passengers were on the same LA connection. Approximately 30 other passengers missed other connections. Was told that we would not make transfer to connection in same gate though we still had 10min before departure. At rebooking desk, was told "this happens all the time". Given meal vouchers to use at hotel by London Heathrow. Dinner voucher was valid only at hotel for a single dinner option (chicken, curry, salad, and water only - no juice nor soda, etc.)."
Pros: "Food was decent and they came back to offer us another drink."
Cons: "Plane was old and dated. No usb or outlets to charge any devices on a 10.5 hour flight. Also seating was small and cramped. I wish there was a way to automatically get an isle seat or emergency row seat if you are over 6ft tall."
Pros: "Food !!the services"
Cons: "The seats not very good and the tv screen"
Pros: "Price OK, bag checked."
Cons: "Checked in 100mins early with prior assistance request, told to wait in general area. After 15mins no wheelchair, BA agent said wait longer. After 30mins still no wheelchair, BA agent would not call to check; said keep waiting "we don't know how long for, but its on them (Deutsche Red Kross) to get you to gate without missing flight"! After 60mins, airport info agent checked & said chair was coming. After 75mins, DRK agent arrived with 2 wheelchairs and wasted time trying to find a second passenger needing assistance. Agent then rushed us through terminal with no opportunity to get food or drink or use bathrooms. Got to very remote gate 15mins before departure, and boarded last. Don't use BA Hamburg if you need assistance."
Pros: "Entertainment. Attendants were great"
Cons: "Not enough personal space"
Cons: "didn't know what meals would be offered, as they were not listed on itinerary, so I bought food too in the airport"
Cons: "Delayed for 3 hours plus. Needed to stand in line for 2 hours just to get re-booked. Once we landed, the Skybridge did not work, so we had to wait more only to be taken off by stairs and a walk across the tarmac to the airport. Old aircraft, with poor amenities."
Pros: "Good staff and food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Pros: "Nothing it was a nightmare"
Cons: "The rude security staff, my previous British air flight from Dublin was 30’minutes late. Heathrow is terrible for connecting flights even with 2 hour leg room. What a joke. English people suck."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft is better"
Cons: "The crew seemed very stressed about the flight being full and therefore was somewhat curt regarding baggage. Also, again not even a glass of water?"
Pros: "Staff was very pleasant. However the airline charges for everything! Coffee, tea, water. As a result it took 1 hour and 40 ministers to get to my row! Everyone had to pay by charge card. A disgrace to wait so long. Greedy leeches."
Cons: "Charged fir water and coffe."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, it was very difficult for me to do all rearrangements."
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."
Pros: "Very smooth security and boarding process at Gatwick. It was worth the extra $11 to have pre-selected my seat, 9C, in the second row of Coach on the aisle. The seating was a bit cramped, and the flight was full, but being up front made everything more pleasant. The landing process in Valencia went very well, and the metro to the town center was very efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendants had some problems initially with the electronic card reader for taking payments for food and beverage. It's always a bit jarring to me to be onboard an airplane where there's not a single complimentary beverage option, but I know it's common on many non-US carriers."
Pros: "On time, lunch"
Cons: "No entertainment but it was only a two hour flight"
Cons: "Boarding was late no communication as to why Limited to no choice for entertainment"
Cons: "I ended up calling American Airlines and they changed my flight completely. I will never be using Kayak again as you made a stressful situation even more stressful. You don't care about your customers at all. If you did you would have a customer service here in America"
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "Old 747 minimum space in coach. Not a very clean plane."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and attentive and I was mostly comfortable."
Cons: "Very noisy plane"
Pros: "staff was very friendly."
Pros: "The crew was nice in the wake of being delayed for hours."
Cons: "Check in took forever. I wasn't able to check in online and was told "this is the price you pay" when I received word that my wife and I wouldn't be sitting together. Then we went to board far later than we were supposed to. After boarding the plane we sat for easily a half hour not moving with no information. Then find out there is scheduled maintenance which would be another hour. AC was shut off and got hot. Started to deplane but we were in back and didn't make it because they reveresed their decision. Got back on and said we would be leaving shortly. In all we say on the plane over 3 hours prior to take off. Never flying with your company again. Easily the worst experience flying ever."
Pros: "Comfortable, great crew and food/drink options, free upgrade. They are the best!"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "plane was awesome"
Cons: "ran out of food options for the back of the plane...staff was rude when I asked for some pretzels or bread since they didn't have any more meatless options"
Cons: "Salad was slimy and clearly not fresh. Food was not great."
Pros: "Quick and a clean aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing special to say"
Pros: "Friendly gate staff and crew, new and comfortable plane, and early arrival."
Pros: "Nothing in specific. But good service and people."
Cons: "The kids crying"
Pros: "The folded pizza was awsome. Lots of room was very comfterable."
Cons: "The crew was very rude."
Pros: "Nice staff, easy boarding for this flight from Paris to London."
Cons: "I have never had such little legroom as I did on this flight. It was thankfully short, so I can't complain too much."
Pros: "We did land OK but JFK was snowed in and this probably caused the many problems we encountered. Iq always have bad luck flying in and out of that airport so I don't completely hold BA accountable. Staff we polite and efficient."
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane for an hour and a half after landing at JFK. On the ground they ran the engines so loudly my husband got a terrible headache. We mentioned the noise problem but were ignored. Once allowed to debark we were crammed into a long cold hall and waited another 1/2 hour before moving towards immigration clearance. To top it off the baggage conveyer system was broken and we waited another 45 minutes before they shut the building down. So we left with no luggage exhausted. One piece of luggage was left back in London. Not pleasant at all. We did get our luggage returned 3 days later. That was good."
Pros: "Good entertainment options Made home it alive Lots of water"
Cons: "Flight was late taking off and had to run to make the connection flight to Calgary."
