Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Everyone on the crew was very friendly, even for a short flight."
Pros: "All was good and on time"
Cons: "Just be good, they could still offer free drinks or water to passengers"
Cons: "Cuisine wasn't much in quality and the problem was exacerbated by industrial strike of BA Catering Services company in Lagos on the day in question. I experienced reduced quality, and I did not get value for what I payed for."

Cons: "It was an older plane with no frills. No power cords, tv monitors. The seats were old and didn’t function properly"

Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "Everything. Possibly the worst airline in Europe."

Pros: "Good Crew, Good Flight"
Cons: "better movie/entertainment selections"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly. Getting to leave the plane."
Cons: "Seats were the smallest since I tried Ryan Air. Boarding is ridiculous process of elevators, buses, and salmon stand-offs as people board from the front & rear with no guidance. Arrival was also waiting on buses before a 15 minute ride to the far side of the airport. No food or beverage is offered free. Not a pleasant experience in any way."

Cons: "My flight from Venice was almost 2 hours late leaving. I missed my connecting flight to Baltimore and was removed from the list even though the Baltimore flight left about 15 minutes late. I had 25 minutes to make it to my connecting flight but was already removed. Airline said I had to be through security within 35 minutes of the flight. I could not get a flight out until the next day."
Pros: "I found it amusing and disturbing that the crew seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves than caring for passengers. I sat in the last row and was dismissed three times because an off duty employee who hitched a ride with her hubby/boyfriend. They just got back from holiday and the crew wanted to hear all about it"
Cons: "See above. Crew up front seemed to have their noses in the air."

Cons: "I disliked the fact that when I tried to download my boarding pass on to my BA app, it told me there appeared to be an issue with at least one of my travelling documents when this was absolutely incorrect (was travelling with a valid British passport). I had no problems whatsoever at the airport at the check in counter. Also, the boarding gate was slightly chaotic. Most people didn't know which queue to join at the boarding gate. Some form of clear explanation when you arrive at the boarding gate would be helpful."

Pros: "They arrived a few minutes earlier than expected."
Pros: "We arrived safely, albeit over 1 hour late"

Cons: "No on house movies system down. Dirty seats."
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment in the headrest screen to keep you occupied, including lots of TV, movies, trivia games, and even a chat for travelers on board to connect."
