Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot took off and landed very well and I got completely drink and food. I will fly again. Thanks"

Pros: "The stewards were very nice and professional!"
Cons: "From my point of view, everything was just right. Loved it."

Pros: "Nice, remember usb charger cord & earbuds."

Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "choice of snacks, unfriendly staff"

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: "When you buy business you expect the quick boarding etc. Boarding group 1 and 2 together created a mess"

Pros: "I think I may have had more room in the seat on this little plane than when I crossed the ocean. Also the window seemed bigger. Very comfortable flight."

Cons: "Il"

Pros: "The crew were lovely and the seats comfy for the 2hr flight"
Cons: "Having to board the plane in the pouring rain by running across the tarmac."

Pros: "Nothing good to say about BA"

Cons: "Called me a no show even though I was there."

Cons: "Late"

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."

Pros: "What a superb service! Impeccable staff, free meal and alcoholic drink, larger seats, excellent flight! Couldn't ask for more"
Cons: "None!"

Cons: "I missed the flight not because of me, but the confusion information that a staff gave it to me."

Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."

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."

Pros: "The Service, with smile, awesome service. Very British!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "THE BACK FIRST TOOK MY MONEY, THEN MY FULL PASSPORT DETAILS AND THEN DENIED ME FLYING BECAUSE THEY PUT MY SURNAME TWICE ON THE BOARDING PASS. THEY ARE ALWAYS WIN. I AM OUT OF POCKET FOR £170 AND DELAYED BY 2.5 HOURS. THIS IS THE WAY THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY - BY CHEATING ON PASSENGERS."

Pros: "How do you be a full service airline and charge for check in bag. I had no way provided to prepay for a bag resulting in getting charged £60 at the airport. This notwithstanding trying to explain how your website failed me."
Cons: "Above"

Pros: "Ease of checking in and getting to departure gate at London City Airport."
Cons: "No food or drink on flight for normal travellers."

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: "I thought the crew were extremely helpful and friendly and made for a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The coffee was just "okay"."

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: "Friendly flight crew. Loved arriving in the city instead of Gatwick."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They were 25 min late landing. Even though we were taking the same plan from London City to Glasgow, we had to get off and go through customs and reboard, all in 5 min. They knew we had to do that and they almost took off without us and a few others in the same position. Then the stewardesses acted like we caused them to take off late to Glasgow....really rude."

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Cons: "Delayed by over an hour."

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "There was a special needs boy that sat behind me and he had some issues (long flight, understandable) and the crew were AMAZING with him. Not everyone has common or even human decency. These people were rad, and it was lovely to see."

Cons: "We went to Gatwick(75.00 Uber) to reschedule in person and we were told there were no refunds and if we wanted to change it would be 250 pounds. It is my wife’s and my 35 year anniversary and this wants a mood dampener"

Pros: "Pilot was friendly and addressed the crew and passengers multiple times with updates."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"

Pros: "For the most part the people and workers were very nice"
Cons: "Couldn’t add baggage with the ticket bought online. Once I did it cost $100 to add 1 bag. Checking in process was the worst, as many kiosks didn’t work and the software seemed buggy."

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”."

Pros: "BAc- great brand and very professional."
Cons: "Nothing for me"

Pros: "Fab flight in every way"

Pros: "Flight screens showed info"
Cons: "Bring back free food ba"

Cons: "Had no idea we had not payed to check a bag. Could have paid online prior to boarding for 30 pounds, but because we did not know, had to pay 65 pounds in order to check a bag at the airport. I am extremely dissatisfied with this flight and with British airways in general. I wish I would have known about the baggage and I could have saved myself a LOT of money. British airway crew were rude and unhelpful. I will not be flying with them again."

Cons: "A 2-hour layover was too short. We experienced crazy long lines for: the bus between terminals, immigration passport review; passport review before the metal detector, and detailed tests on permitted volumes of shampo, and toothpaste. The agent forced me to check a normally permitted carryon bag, then the bags took 45 minutes to be placed on the turnstile after the flight. Not an efficient airport."

Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."

Cons: "The connection was not good too little time between flights also the American Airlines desk was hidden. We had to get boarding passes at the exit gate. There should have been a rep to guide passengers to desk."

Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."

Cons: "One piece of luggage was left at Heathrow. It arrived on the next flight so it turned out ok but was stressful for an hour."

Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."

Pros: "The seat was fine. the flight was as expected."
Cons: "expectation that one will fly with only one carry-on bag and not receive any food or beverage during the flight. industry trend is ridiculous ..."

Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."

Pros: "Crew was mostly kind and helpful. My bags arrived at their final destination."
Cons: "I was told that I had to check my bag because it would not fit in the overhead bin. When I got on the plane I found that the overhead bins were ample sized for my hiking pack. I know that British Airways has a policy regarding bags in overhead bins that basically says 'if you cannot lift your bag into the overhead bin un-assisted, you must check your bag.' My husband and I are both experienced hikers, we lifted our packs unassisted on the last plane, yet they forced us to check our bags. I'm glad our bags made it to the UK, but this is literally the first time I've checked a bag and had it arrive. Also, the boarding passes sent to me on my phone were rejected by almost every security/boarding check. This is after BA supposedly fixed their error with the previous boarding passes. Overall not pleased with the experience but glad I paid under $300 for my ticket."

Cons: "Everything was sub par with BA. We upgraded to world traveler plus and the seats were old, there was trash from the previous flight and the tv screens were from 1995. The movies are only on loop so when you take off and are finally allowed to turn on the tv, the movies are 25 minutes in. All around a waste of money. Will never fly BA AGAIN!!"

Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."

Cons: "As requested checked my bag in and it took an absolute age to get my bag in Edinburgh. I ordered a toastie it was lukewarm"

Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Boarded on a bus"

Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced and outperformed by the Budget Airlines."

Pros: "Comfortable enough seats"
Cons: "Not even drinks were served"

Cons: "could not even get water to drink without purchasing"

Pros: "Even on a short flight, you can feel a difference with the crew. This one was very good."

Cons: "security in Heathrow was AWFUL. There was only ONE person working to screen luggage AND check luggage that was questionable. There wee 15 people waiting for luggage who almost missed their connections. I sprinted through the airport and made my connection with 2 minutes to spare."

Pros: "Service was great - so polite and friendly. And the coffee was worth every penny."
Cons: "the luggage fee - Now I understand why the fare was so inexpensive! I'm an American and thus slow :-)"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Seating was roomier and much more comfortable. More leg room."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks."

Pros: "Luggage delayed."

Cons: "Did not get the seats I paid for"

Pros: "Was not made aware of baggage policy. Their regular policy allows one checked baggage but not our ticket. Was not prompted when doing online check in and led to me paying almost 200 pounds for luggage. Just ridiculous!"
Cons: "Baggage policy not clear - good way to force customers to pay more and help their revenue!"

Pros: "Boarding was straight forward with the automated scanning of boarding pass."
Cons: "I was totally taken aback that I had to pay for tea and coffee. After having to pay for baggage and to reserve my seat for the flight. At least beverages could have been offered at no additional cost. Very disappointed with BA."

Pros: "The 1 hr flight"
Cons: "They charged 3.50£ for tea"

Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"

Pros: "I was travelling alone with a baby and a toddler and found most of the staff very helpful - stowing my bags, helping to carry my buggy, helping with seat belts etc."
Cons: "A member of staff at the gate referred to my 2 year old daughter as "a difficult child" to another member of staff because she didn't like having her photo taken. I felt it was very rude and unfair, particularly as I had to lift her to an awkward height (whilst also holding a baby) as the camera was in a fixed position. It was clear the staff member didn't have children herself!"

Pros: "I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrived about 45 mins before the departure time and they refused to let my 85 year old sick dad in a wheel chair board. They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew helpful."
Cons: "More than an hour late in taking off, and the food is almost inedible - get the Air Canada chef on board!"

Pros: "Slept most of the way. Cabin looked new, so that was nice."
Cons: "Having to gate check my bag even though it fit in the overhead bin."

Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."

Pros: "Nothing. At. All."
Cons: "This was a nightmare. BA had no flights available to Edinburgh. Booked on 3 separate flights at 2 different airports. Last one was canceled outright. After being awake for 28 hours and traveling for 15, we finally were given a hotel room for the night in London. Still trying to get to Edinburgh."

Cons: "Couldn't say as the flight was cancelled on arrival in LHR. Took 5hrs and 8 seperate question to discover what was going on and to be offered a flight to Glasgow as an alternative. The flight to Glasgow also took of late arriving at 2310 local. Europecar were great hired a Mercedes E220 with a gps to complete the journey to Edinburgh, at a cost of 600GBP for 3 1/2 days including fuel. Arrived 8hrs late, seriously affecting sleep patterns and ruining an already tight schedule. BA could have met us exiting ac from LAS in T5 explained situation, new boarding cards etc, total fail, should have booked flight with Lufthansa to EDI via Frankfurt for 600USD less. BA Staff comments such as " I'm sorry I haven't been trained for this situation, I can't help you after 40 minutes" etc Total lack of staff available and able to assist, super poor knowledge, massive queues not moving."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "BA is the national flag carrier, operating from the newest terminal at the country's top airport. You would think that they could manage, in the 21st century, to get us to our flight on time, using an airbridge instead of 30 year old buses. Said buses were also too few in number so boarding took the thick end of 40 minutes as they shuttled back and forth. BA are a complete and utter joke. There is no excuse for this level of penny-pinching inadequacy."

Pros: "The staff handled everything really well. Continuously being updated to the delay reasons."
Cons: "Being stuck on a plane on the tarmac for 2+ hours, before being moved to a corridor, and then a bus, and then boarding a new plane. No information about delay compensation or refunds being given. No provisions for providing food or drinks for the toddlers/babies/children that had been kept on the plane for a couple of hours."

Pros: "That we got home"
Cons: "It was 2 hours late which meant we missed our train and got home 4 hours late"

Pros: "I was expecting EasyJet to run late and the crew to be overworked and rude, but they were like Southwest Airlines in the USA, very nice and on-time."
Cons: "This applies to all airlines: crack down on travelers trying to bring to much cabin luggage! Also, travelers should have to first use the bin space above their seat before using some other bin space. Many people in the back of plane cram their cabin luggage into the first bins they see so they don't have to carry it from the back."

Pros: "Evriting"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, despite the fact that they didn't recline."
Cons: "We waited in cues repeatedly waiting to board. The check in crew kept separating people into different lines (unknown reasons). We were not told that the plane was late until after departure time. (by then, we had figured it out)."

Pros: "I landed alive"
Cons: "No information about the gate until you have tk run across the airport to board"

Cons: "Nothing, the price is great and I would take a cheaper price for the flight over free drinks and food anyday"

Pros: "Crew were lovely and happy and kept us abreast of the problems that caused a delay in departure."

Pros: "Receiving updates about delays"
Cons: "The flight could have left on time"

Cons: "Free refreshments"

Cons: "It could have been on time"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Border control at EDI. Lanes too long"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed which meant I was over an hour late for my connecting travel. Delay kept increasing as I was waiting at Luton airport."

Pros: "Pilot got us there in less than an hour after a three hour delay"
Cons: "Three hour delay with no explanation until we were actually on the flight. Only a £3 refreshment voucher. Couldn't hear cabin crew and they rushed through the food service. Looked like they didn't want to be there."

Pros: "Staff were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and ended up parked so far from terminal, not the best for a late flight. The new smal airbus was cramped legroom wise, I had hoped for an improvement over 737"

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: "No complaints about flight"

Cons: "Extra cost for hold luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Ends up costing me ½ day of work around £500"

Cons: "Website doesn't work properly, 6 hr. wait for online chat, phone help that got things wrong, herded like cattle into ever smaller, airless waiting areas, left 30 min. late and arrived an hr. late on a 2 hr. flight."

Cons: "Flight 1.5 hour delay"

Pros: "Overall was fine."
Cons: "When boarding the lady handling my boarding pass had a Bad attitude!"

Pros: "Got to destination"
Cons: "Customer service was poor from ground staff at Bristol, should be expected from budget airline."

Pros: "Late arrival fog in Geneva"
Cons: "Speedy security and short walk to the boarding g area and plane make Southampton my airport of choice"

Pros: "Comfortable. Large plane"
Cons: "I was not allowed my hand luggage on in the cabin on the trip down or return as was told the cabin was full. That is would go in the hold but it would be first off. So many people came on after me with much larger hand luggage! Also my bag was last into baggage reclaim both times"

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"

Pros: "Very helpful and friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Pilots didn’t make any contact to the passengers. Very weird"

Cons: "Todo excelente gracias"

Pros: "It was obvious that we had a excellent pilot ( captain) from very nice take off to a very present landing and well on time. Well done Easy Jet. I will definitely book with you again."
Cons: "Very unpleasant person sitting next to us however that was not Easy Jets fault."

Pros: "The crew was nice"

Pros: "The trip home was excellent, Everything from start of the journey to the finish was perfect."
Cons: "The only complaint would be the journey to Krakow, that was a bit scary dew to the fog and low cloud, the pilot had to abort the first landing and circle for over an hour. But that was out with his control."

Pros: "The ease of journey."

Pros: "Was inexpensive. Very friendly staff. Easy trip"

Pros: "Good value for money. As expected"
Cons: "Bag drop staff rude."

Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of rubbish on a stairway that no one removed. Totally ridiculous."

Cons: "Their check in system is not clear.. We have a reservation for 2 passengers, and in the system I paid for an extra luggage... considering the price I paid I didnt realize that that was only an extra piece only for one passenger, so we had to pay 57 euros for the additional piece of the second passenger at the counter... considering the total ticket for 2 passenger was 120 euros, that increased the total price for almost 50%... Not even in Mexico the ticket for these kind of low budget airlines are so confuse and "tricky"."

Pros: "Maybe it was the time of the year but we waited longer on the plane than the flight itself."

Cons: "The 1 hour plus delay at Bristol"

Pros: "As above - uneventful - ran as it should!"
Cons: "Long walk at Kastrup airport!!"

Pros: "Crew always good."
Cons: "Delays, flight called way ahead of actual boarding and long delay getting off flight and in to terminal."

Pros: "Got from A to B, no fuss about bag sizes - symptomatic of them needing us to board quickly perhaps?"
Cons: "1.5 Hours late; a typical delay with easyJet No real apologies offer of refreshment vouchers, although there was regular updates provided Pilot interrupted sleeping cabin halfway through - at about midnight - with long update On Departure and arrival plane was located away from gate and the bus journey seemed to take an eternity - in Edinburgh in particular"

Cons: "Landed 3 hours late"

Cons: "Very late"

Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "Kind crew, easy boarding and comfortable flight."

Pros: "Staff were excellent. Very friendly and nothing was a problem."
Cons: "Everything had to be paid for. Not even a free drink of water."

Pros: "Price was very good"
Cons: "Flying to London and back both flights were delayed by over an hour, which was quite annoying."

Cons: "Our return flight on Sunday evening from London Gatwick to Edinburgh was cancelled without any clear explanation. Customer service thereafter was poor."

Pros: "Easy and convenient"
Cons: "Clarity of front and rear entry instructions."

Cons: "Hated everything... kept people in 39 degrees Celsius 104 degree Fahrenheit heat for up to 20 minutes packed in a little bus to go to 100 feet for loading. While not rude the staff was extremely authoritarian and uncaring. Planes couldn't be kept clean because they were loading people from the rear as they were emptying the last people from the front"
