Airline reviews

Cons: "Had to check prophylacticly my roller bag, even though flight wasn't full—"

Pros: "The 'ease' of travelling with B. A., the efficiency of the staff and the comfortable seats in the plane all added to an enjoyable trip."

Pros: "Crew was nice, complimentary refreshments on board. Seat had spacious leg room."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The hot bacon sandwich for breakfast was generous for economy."
Cons: "We left late but I’m not sure the airline could do much about it."

Pros: "The seating configuration. Complementary drinks."
Cons: "The chance to be able to volunteer the hand baggage in Dusseldorf airport the same as available in London Terminal 5. The plane is small and it is best to have it sent to the haul after clearing security. This was not offered at any stage at Dusseldorf."

Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "missed the connecting flight due to delay"

Cons: "Delay of a half hour."

Pros: "Offer of small meal."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour. Asked to check in bag as full flight"

Cons: "Be on time so we dont miss our connection"

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”. There were no self service terminals so we stood waiting an hour. Staff were sitting idly but not serving customers."

Pros: "More legroom comes as standard, compared to competitor airlines on the same route with the same aircraft"
Cons: "The interior of the plane is a little bit tatty"

Pros: "I like every single thing staff was kindly, smiley and helpful. Check in easy, I liked very much our pop corn and Fanta complimentary offer as also our quick trip. Landing smoothly and nicely"
Cons: "there was nothing I didnt like"

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"

Cons: "Better not be hungry while boarding"

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."

Pros: "punctual ,good service"

Cons: "2 hours late"

Cons: "Il"

Pros: "As someone who hadn’t flown with BA for a while, I certainly had positive experience with this flight. The staff was professional and the boarding/disembarking processes were smooth and quick."
Cons: "Need to work on punctuality. Would have been an excellent journey if it wasn’t for the delay."

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."

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."

Cons: "BA has a problem with one of the doors. Chaos."

Pros: "Free wine or beer"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and boarding was completely stress free. Myself and my partner checked in online with ease and were at our gates efficiently upon departure and return"
Cons: "Our flights were delayed 3 hours and 20 and although we were compensated for lunch at the airport, when handing out refreshments onboard we were completely missed out. Also pretty annoyed to find that we could only use the lunch vouchers in a hand full of the bars and restaurants."

Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
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."

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: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian entre and also ran out of snacks, so I was very hungry and had no options."

Cons: "City Airport crowded and overly commercialised. Rip-off prices."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"

Pros: "I understand and appreciate not being able to land in Florence due to conditions and safety, and they were able to give us the closest Pisa airport."
Cons: "They kind of left us stranded in PiSA. Promised bus that didnt happen. We had to pay out of pocket 12euros each to Florence bus station, then pay another 6euros from bus station to florence airport. PAIN! Did not get to our AirBNB at tuscany until 21:30 instead of 14:00! Would be niced to get reim for all 8 members in our party!"

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: "All was OK"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Free food and drink remains on City flights. Convenience of City."
Cons: "Long flight. No entertainment"

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."

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."

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."

Cons: "Customer Service is Dead with British Airways!!! I will make every effort not to fly with BA again"

Cons: "Crew could have reprimanded people not wearing their masks or not covering their noses. The airline could have kept middle seats open to instill more confidence in flying."

Cons: "Nothing!!! It was a great flight!!!"

Pros: "Glenlivet whisky for free"

Pros: "Good enough amount of leg room. Easy to checkin online."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a nightmare. Seems some people were directed to the rear of the plane when they were sitting at the front and visa Versace so they were trying to pass each other in the isle."

Cons: "Better drink selection"

Cons: "Just wish there was another few inches width on seats"

Pros: "Great crew and flight"

Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and helpful"

Cons: "Filth plane"

Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."

Pros: "No hassle and all straight forward"

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: "Check in and crew were very nice"
Cons: "Baggage was slow But everything was fine Pilot kept us informed"

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"

Cons: "I'm not sure why the lady at the check-in desk was sooo rude and unwilling to help. Customers' presence was really bothering her..."

Pros: "Comfortable short hop"

Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."

Pros: "I was very well looked after by crew."

Pros: "I like flights that land on purpose in a couple.troled way. This one did that. Good enough for me."
Cons: "Having to fly, but sometimes if happens."

Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "2 Hour Delay"

Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"

Pros: "Usual efficient BA"
Cons: "N/a"

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."

Pros: "I got there. It was safe."
Cons: "Entertainment system shut off."

Pros: "Flight"
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..."

Pros: "Service and price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew, funny safety instructions with Gordon Ramsey"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time! Comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I have to pay for water?????"

Pros: "When it got going, a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The delay was longer than the flight, although not necessarily BA's fault."

Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac (I understand the delay) for 2 hours there was no water available for another hour past takeoff. And then it was only available for purchase. Really, a cup of free water is asking too much?"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and service was excellent"
Cons: "Keep the complementary snacks and drinks made the flight great after a long day"

Pros: "Nice plane, and quick flight to Heathrow from Glasgow. The plane had to leave late due to weather but the pilot kept passengers informed and made up time in the air so we were only 15 minutes late. The crew was available to discuss implications for connections."
Cons: "No entertainment options but this was a small plane and quick flight, so I didn't expect anything."

Pros: "Blanket and quiet to sleep"
Cons: "my screen didn't work"

Cons: "late on two occasions first one 20 mins second and the n an hour. Not told why. Then boarding passes had to be reissued with different seats ..whole thing a shambles"

Cons: "M&S Food menu is limited as it is - they then also run out of most items and couldnt serve passengers on a 5 hour flight.."

Pros: "Food good and very attentive and friendly Cabin crew Amanda made the flight a pleasure."

Pros: "Happy stewards"

Pros: "No access to any lounge services. Food selection and quality significantly behind competitors. Does not just the price charged."

Cons: "Everyone was terrible"

Cons: "Cabin luggage is too big for regional aircraft. Size limits need to be imposed more strictly."

Cons: "Boarding process was a bit chaotic. Announcement s needed to be clearer. Also all old movies on the IFE."
