Pros: Cabin crew were excellent. At the end of the flight they let my airplane-loving son go into the cockpit, sit in the first officer's chair for a photo and even press a couple of control buttons (safely on the ground of course)

Cons: We were flying from JFK to heathrow to Tel Aviv. Israel declared that they we’re going to mandate all persons coming in for 14 days. British Airways did not cancel our flight and would not give us a refund. They would only rebook our flight to several weeks later. We booked our flight months ago because the specific time we booked was convenient for us. Our new flight is not convenient for us and we don’t want to go to a country that we will have to be quarantined in. We were very disappointed.
