Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
Helpful and friendly crew. Good food. Smooth flight.
No seatback screens. Hire charge for iPads to access entertainment. Can use own iPad but need Air Canada app to make full use of entertainment (which would have been useful information to communicate BEFORE the flight, since there is no way to download app once on board!).
They didn't check if the belts was buckled up on everyone. Also, we have a 5 months old baby and never got the supporting belt for takeoff and landing, never got a baby floating device placed near us or asked if the pilot should fill in the baby's BA log book... staff also looked unfriendly to babies when we boarded, saying 'oh, this is the 3rd one' and looking at eachother in agony.
Boarding was speedy and efficient in Austin.
The plane (787-9) was very new and clean and felt like a premium experience.
Our assigned crew member was short with customers and not to the usual friendly standard of other BA flights we have taken.
The food (Veggie Lacto Ovo) was disappointing. We had no bread versus other passengers and had fruit for both desert and breakfast. A little imagination goes a long way, normally only the main is different but this experience was very underwhelming.
