Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick access to the airport and gates"
Cons: "Free food on board"
Pros: "Plane was new and good"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Very old aircraft. Looked extremely run down and many things were broken."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Waiting area before boarding was really hot, if you can’t afford air conditioning then maybe electric fans!!"
Pros: "Blanks were comfy, staff very friendly and the food was tasty"
Cons: "One overhead speaker was crackling and not sure if it worked quite right, couldn’t hear announcements very well."
Cons: "Heathrow is the worst airport when you have a passenger who needs a wheel chair."
Pros: "Warm welcome, on time and comfortable"
Cons: "Seat clearance not good"
Pros: "Crew is kind, polite and patient. Food portions are adequate. Entertainment is on par on upgraded 747s to other aircraft in the fleet now."
Cons: "Be careful of the Chicken Curry main. Wasn’t expecting it to be extremely spicy. Seat pitch is tight but generally comfortable due to the unique headrests of these new seats. USB power was provided. Arrival into JFK was terrible. BA’s T7 is so crowded and dated I could literally touch the ceilings above my head while waiting 2 hours for immigration crammed into desolate conditions."
Pros: "One aspect that was greatly appreciated was when the cabin head came over the speaker and asked everyone to please return their seat to the up right position so that everyone could enjoy their meal. When you sit in the main cabin, it's incredibly frustrating to have the person in from of you recline their seat. There is little room, and for the most part everyone is pretty selfish about that."
Cons: "The cabin crew got a little snippy. Understandable. It is a long flight."
Pros: "When I left my wallet behind in my seat, it was returned quickly with everything intact. This was most likely due to quick action by the Bulgarian security personnel, but whoever did it, I am very grateful!"
Cons: "The cart delivering drinks was not capable of providing a simple glass of ordinary water. I waited 20-30 minutes for a small plastic glass to arrive. The effort to sell their expensive bottled water instead was obvious. Not very customer friendly."
Pros: "Nice aircraft! Very modern."
Cons: "The crew could be quite curt at times"
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Entertainment need more movies"
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late. Crew was standoffish, bordering on unpleasant. They want you to pay for a glass of plain water! Definitely not the British Arways I remembered."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Cons: "Rude staff at the airport. Short overlay did not have enough time to get our bags and checkin again that was ridiculous to have to check in again!"
Pros: "Me and my husband were upgraded from world traveler plus to business class, which we are thankful for"
Cons: "We were unable to order special meal online and were told to contact onboard crew for meals. When we contacted them inflight, they said they don’t have meals!!! And we were left to starve the whole night, while food was served for all around us. The really shocking thing is none of the crew had the courtesy to offer some snacks or bread. These especially when we were seated in business class!"
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Flight canceled want able to rebook"
Cons: "As a Kenyan Passport Holder living in Canada on a PR status was denied right to travel to Kenya via LHR transit. WHY ? will you help us with our rights what compensation will help to alleviate the pain"
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment - 1hr flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Pros: "After having problems with not getting the seat I booked and paid for - not a lot! British airways trying to fool customers that they are a premium airline but run a budget airline service."
Cons: "Old plane, poor food, no snacks, poor and old entertainment system."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Pros: "I thought the flight over was very good but we missed our return flight because we were not informed of gates closing a hour before take off and had to pay for another return ticket. I thought the airline should have given us a little break on the cost."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!!!"
Cons: "No leg room!"
Pros: "No complaints about the flight. It was so short that we didn't even have time to get a drink or snack. Quite a bit of turbulence but I think that might be typical."
Cons: "The plane was old with worn furniture, torn material on seats, and non functioning entertainment system"
Pros: "Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Snack trolley didn't reach the back seats due to the shortness of the flight. The only entertainment was an in flight magazine!"
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "This was my worst flight experience in a long time...an anomaly from other recent BA flights. I was unable to sleep on the flight because it was so crowded. I ordered a lactose-free meal that was unbelievably horrible and from which I'm pretty sure I contracted a food-borne bug that kept me ill (as in sleeping up to 15 hours a day and running for the toilet) for a week after the flight."
Cons: "The hour + delay leaving LAX AND DELAY again on landing"
Pros: "The staff were all very friendly, and even though we did not get seats together at check in, the gate agent managed to find us seats together which made the trip more enjoyable."
Cons: "I was disappointed to find that there were absolutely no entertainment or connectivity options on board a 2 1/2 hour flight. It's pretty much standard across carriers now to have at least internet access and a portable device entertainment option. I also did not enjoy paying for even the most basic beverages on the flight. Coffee, tea, and soft drinks should be included. You'll save a pound, but lose a customer."
Pros: "Everyone please read this carefully before flying with British Airways - we will be taking this further as customer service is appalling!"
Cons: "British Airways overbooked the flight so we missed it and the next one due to system failure. We then were trapped in the airport (Heathrow) for the entire day. They 'allowed' us to leave the airport nine hours after we got there but unfortunately there were no trains, planes or buses going to Milan until midnight. After we searched for two hours to get to Milan we found one but had to spend nine hundred pounds to get a flight with another airline to get to my friends wedding. They lost our bags so we had to borrow clothes for the wedding from friends which was so embarrassing! We then continued our trip and they still have not returned our bags seven days into what was going to be the holiday of a lifetime. Not only have they ruined the trip for us both, they have cost us a bomb as we have had to buy clothes as we go."
Pros: "Nothing to like in particular."
Cons: "Why does BA insist on serving spicy food on every flight from the US to the UK. I was offered chicken or pasta and no one even bothered to tell me it was chicken curry. With BA I always bring food on board with me as the inflight meals are awful."
Pros: "Quick and a clean aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing special to say"
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The flight didn't exist. Got to the airport and they said there was a glitch and I booked a flight that didnt have a plane. They drove me to Heathrow and got me on another flight 4 hours later. Missed the last bus home and now am stuck in NYC till the morning."
Pros: "The gate agent"
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"
Pros: "The staff Food was plentiful"
Cons: "Poor leg room Cabin too warm Poor boarding efficiency"
Pros: "Service was fine, the plane was full but it was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the gate was not announced at the airport n London until 15 min before departure which was irritating. This flight was delayed and my checked in luggage did not make it to my destination. Hope to get it sometime tomorrow (a bit inconvenient but it happens)"
Pros: "787-9 new aircraft with the total lack of space in economy, my worst transatlantic crossing in thirty years. DVT waiting to happen."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "I was booked onto an American Airlines flight back to Chicago. It was lovely"
