Cons: "Constantly late! Unreliable and missed my connecting flight, AGAIN!!! 4 out of last 10 flights I have had lost luggage. No apology, it’s “just BA”."
Cons: "Being on time for a change"
Cons: "We actually did not go directly to Marseille, but due to a delay, we missed our initial connection and had to take a flight from London to Frankfurt and then from Frankfurt to Marseille. The total trip was 24 hours long and exhausting."
Cons: "steak was dry. lite lunch was very salty shrimp"
Pros: "There is nothing to say this is good and will not use BA again at all. BA charges a very unreasonable price for early seat reservation."

Pros: "New plane and good service"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours."
Pros: "We made very good time. Crew members were courteous and helpful. Check in was very easy. ."

Cons: "Everything was for sale"
Cons: "There was no food or movie"
Pros: "I managed to get onto an earlier flight than anticipated when my original flight to Milan was canceled. The flight went well and service was certainly completely acceptable. I don't recall many details more than two weeks later."
Cons: "The exit row seat available on the rebooked flight was a middle seat, and I can't really complain since I did get the extra leg room I originally booked. I didn't like the length of time I had to wait at Heathrow, however, due to the canceled flight. It was several hours! My apartment rental landlord and I were both inconvenienced somewhat by the late evening arrival when an early afternoon arrival was initially scheduled."
Pros: "Flight crew was top notch with few exceptions. Safe journey. Great price tag with what should have been limited connections."
Cons: "BA used to be one of my three favorite airlines, especially the international. Sat on tarmac for over 2 hours because no one thought to load luggage of a couple hundred people or de-ice the wings for the sprinkle of snowflakes that terrified London. Cancelled our first flight to London a few hours before we were to leave home and after two hours on the phone, we were instructed to cancel our remaining flights and purchase a connecting flight to our destination ON OUR OWN DIME with the hope BA May reimburse. Had to fly into another COUNTRY, pay for our own hotel room and transfers and got to our final destination a day later, with only crossed fingers BA will take care of some of those expenses or at very least reimburse for the cancelled flight. They Lost our luggage on the way home because of a 2-hour delay (tarmac story above^), because they involved 3 airlines in their efforts to help us connect back home. Staff and crew we saw face to face were great to help...though not all customers shared that experience as we witnessed. Administratively, based on our 2 weeks of multi-country travel with them, BA seems to have lost the ability to manage themselves. 2.5 hour flight from Rome to London has terrible service and we had to ask for water to drink. Everything else was paid...I’m accustomed to that on regionals Euro commuter flights but very surprising on a full-fledged BA plane covering that distance. So many extra inches given to the thirty folks in first and business that commoners get sardine seats across the pond to America. That being said, the seats themselves are plenty comfortable withthe exception of arm rests that do not fully position upright. BA used to make you feel incredibly fortunate to fly with them. Now, I appreciate the crew who worked very hard to make-up for such an ugly delay on the ground and in baggage and flightbmanagement. The rest left me with a migraine."
Cons: "I almost missed this place despite being there in good time (and having priority boarding)."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I couldn't travel as I was told to bring the credit card used in the booking of my flight. This was not explained in the booking option. Thus I would need a refund on my flight ticket."
Cons: "I paid for TWO EXTRA suitcases for my flight. I carefully packed and weighted them in advance. The "lady" on the counter made me remove one jacket and one pair of boots from each suitcase because it was GRAMS over the limit. Grams those that my hand scale did not accuse at all. The following customer right after me had KILOS OVER the limit (almost SEVEN) and were not flying business or first class, regular economic class just like me. And they did not had to remove a thing from their extra heavy suitcases. What is the company criteria? Anyway, I bought me another return flight on OTHER airline and simply lost my return flight on BA. I am never flying this horrible company again."
Cons: "3 hours on the plain waiting for take off. Cheap sandwich for breakfast."
Pros: "There were no passengers in middle seats. I liked the M&S food for purchase, although they ran out of sandwiches by row 10."
Cons: "I made the connection from T3 to T5; my bags didn’t, again, BA!"
Pros: "Nice flight, great service."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Food, service, friendly, helpful Cabin crew made it a very positive experience"
Cons: "Entertainment system is really ancient, it's lagging other airlines in terms of display size & quality, user interface and programming"
Pros: "I got a very good price on this flight attendants were very nice transfer between concourses was much faster than the BA flight magazine lead me to expect"
Cons: "the entertainment screen was fuzzy - visual images unclear on video audio selections were good though length of concourse was ridiculous and lining up for boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours in the airplane before they would take off, first because they said there was a line for the taxi gate, then they said something was wrong with the airplane they needed to fix it. Shouldn't they do maintenance before they load a plane?"
Pros: "It was a smooth landing."
Cons: "Do difference between business and coach except no one in the middle. Same seats, same everything. Save your money."
Cons: "no complementary drinks, coffee, snack, nothing? not very hospitable"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 and the Entertainment system."
Cons: "Toilets ran out of paper towels and kleenex Bags took too long to be delivered."
Pros: "Nice, smooth flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Pre flight information, checking in online & self baggage drop."
Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on runway for 30 mins with no explanation. Not very comfortable, cramped. Can't pay for refreshments with cash."
Cons: "The "complimentary" drinks weren't complimentary, as you had to pay for them"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "Meat was over cooked. Screen was not clear."
Cons: "Our bags were lost. Only water was offered."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Very poor service. Did not offer drinks. When asked for drinks the crew said they are doing duty free and did not serve water or drinks."
Cons: "The fact that it was delayed 2.5 hours which meant we would have missed our connection to the USA. We then saught an alternate flight which turned out to be Air Canada."
Pros: "Everyone please read this carefully before flying with British Airways - we will be taking this further as customer service is appalling!"
Cons: "British Airways overbooked the flight so we missed it and the next one due to system failure. We then were trapped in the airport (Heathrow) for the entire day. They 'allowed' us to leave the airport nine hours after we got there but unfortunately there were no trains, planes or buses going to Milan until midnight. After we searched for two hours to get to Milan we found one but had to spend nine hundred pounds to get a flight with another airline to get to my friends wedding. They lost our bags so we had to borrow clothes for the wedding from friends which was so embarrassing! We then continued our trip and they still have not returned our bags seven days into what was going to be the holiday of a lifetime. Not only have they ruined the trip for us both, they have cost us a bomb as we have had to buy clothes as we go."
Pros: "nothing to be noted"
Cons: "late departure"
Pros: "This was maybe a regional carrier, the flight was a bit more mundane compared to the wide-body crossing the Atlantic, however, there was nothing to really complain about. Boarding was a bit of a madhouse, but in the end not too eventful."
Pros: "I liked everything about the service."
Cons: "We booked a wheelchair transfer from the connecting flight, and BA refused to provide the service. My elderly mother in law with limited mobility was left alone and stranded at Heathrow and was only assisted by fellow passengers (NOT BA staff). Unbelievable."
Pros: "Everything on the flight was fine the crew was great and the seats had a comfortable amount of legroom."
Cons: "I was shocked to learn that my ticket did not include any check in baggage allowance. Plus the charge of £60 per bags for our travel party of three was just rude. I was also disappointed to Learn that BA would not honor my One World Saphire status in anyway and give me a free checkin."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 3 hrs which meant I would miss 2 onward connections-- had to be re- booked on American"
Pros: "Great flight staff and meals for coach were excellent. The attendants were so nice and responsive"
Pros: "The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence."
Cons: "I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! And only had very old movies to watch"
Pros: "Frequent beverage service and decent food. My wife and I enjoyed catching up on several movies that we otherwise had ignored."
Cons: "Heathrow Airport is a horrible mess. It seems our soft shell carry-on luggage that fit fine above us on our previous British airways flight was now too large and had to be check. This bothered me greatly as multiple individuals with hard shell carry-on luggage rolled by without so much as a word. It appeared that whomever decided the seating arrangements was drunk. All of our previous flights my wife and I were seated next to each other. This flight we were seated in two different rows. After several trades (I think four) we were able to sit next to each other. I had attempted 24 hours prior to the flight to select our seats but was unable to do this without paying $50."
