Pros: "Planes were new or well maintained."
Cons: "Confirmed seat selection does not actually mean confirmed. BA changed our seats without notice and stuck us in the back of the plane. There was no real effort to address the unexpected change. It also took the entirety of the 3 hour flight for the service cart to make it to the back of the plane. This was after a 2 hour delay during which they provided only sporadic updates.

No hotels made available ; pretty much ignored to make own arrangements. Appalling lack of communication. Staff did not appear to know or communicate process, especially to foreign and elderly passengers. Shabby, but hope Eu(!) compensation will smooth the way."

Pros: "I had booked the Flexiplus service well in advance, when the prices were not too high. Less than 24 hours before the flight I changed my date at no extra charge. The ticket allowed me Fastrack access through the crowded Luton Airport security with minimal delay. For boarding, the gate was well segregated and I was given priority service the moment I arrived. The flight was delayed due to fog and we were kept well informed even after we had boarded. After a further delay due to fog, the cockpit was opened and passengers allowed to show their children the cockpit. The crew were always very polite and welcoming and kept everyone in good spirits. During the flight we were kept informed of progress. The front seats were also a bonus."
Cons: "From experience and true of this flight too, the Easyjet Plus check in queue is often slower than the other queue. Use the advantage for Security and boarding, but not for check - in !"

Cons: "I did not like going to the long stay carpark north terminal it adds quite a few additional minutes on my journey, I usually use the LtP in south terminal . Also very few spaces left in zone Z even at 6 am!!! I only had hand luggage and I could not see any escalators so I had to wait for lift which was daft. Then as I had already checked in had to ask where to go next...."

Pros: "on time, flight comfortable, super fast to exit airport after landing."
Cons: "Flight left super early. It didn't really seem that Gatwick processes passengers this early: - not many baggage drops open, long wait. - boarding of plain very disorderly. Stuck standing on air gate for sometime. Hadn't loaded disabled passengers first. It was hard for them to get through as other passengers allowed onto air gate."
Cons: "We waited for an hour on the tarmac. It's critical that if other passengers aren't on time we close the doors and go so we leave on states time. Otherwise we miss it as we did and had to wait an hour. I realise my flight was cheap however timings are global whether no frills or not!"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "The hard seat backs"
Cons: "Rowdy passengers were allowed to remain on the flight without being told by staff to quieten down. This was the most disappointing aspect of the flight."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Most of it"
Pros: "Definitely no frills but adequate in every sense. I particularly like the fact that you cannot recline your seats. The airline clearly works at getting you there on time. There is food available and drinks at a reasonable cost."

Cons: "The flight attendants were very short and not helpful. I pumped breast milk and asked for a bit of ice and they gave me four cubes. When I asked for a bit more after first service they again gave me four cubes. Not very kind and treated me like I was bothering them."
Cons: "My wife was not allowed to board the flight. because her passport expires in april, we was told by ryanair in a phone call that this would not be a problem,then when she tried to board she was refused. thanks ryanair you cost us a lot of money and caused a lot of stress. you just lost another customer. why not make it clear that a person needs 90 days on their passport if you are going to enforce these purile rules."
Pros: "crew were cheerfull"
Cons: "Ryanair are fleecing customer regarding the wheelie carry on bag. Customers should be told about their new 'rules' and all the extra costs at the point of purchasing the the ticket as when you add the extra costs on the flight is no longer a bargain and flying with BA is a much better option."
Cons: "Delayed an hour."

Pros: "Staff where nice and flight was on time"
