Cons: "I wasn’t aware that there is a ticket with only 15kg baggage allowance - thank God I was taken to the airport by a relative and could leave some stuff with them. Of course, I should’ve checked - but I didn’t know there was an option below 23 kg. You’re never done with learning l"

Cons: "I had a carry-on sized bag which would have fit in the overhead compartment. I was told that it would not fit the Swiss Air compartment, thus was forced to check it at the gate. I expressed my concern that it would get lost (thus the reason I never opt to check bags) and was assured "They are very efficient in Zurich." When we arrived in Madrid, my bag was not at the carousel. I was told at Customer Service that it was on another flight, but that they could deliver it to my Airbnb between 4-7 pm. I had to wait there instead of enjoying my vacation to wait for my bag. The bag did not arrive until 10:30 pm. I did not have my clothes or belongings with me all day. Swiss Air in particular needs to update their overhead compartment regulations, as my bag definitely would have fit there, and could have avoided this entire situations."

I am over 200 cm in height, the passenger in front of me was 163 cm with seat all the way back while sitting on the edge of her seat playing games. The monitor I was watching was about 14 cm from my face. I never put my seat back, but I sure as hell will now. This flight was over seven hours, that is to long to be contorted."
Pros: "Friendly Crew , modern and spacious aircraft B777"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together.

Cons: "My bag remained in London during flight change.Have direct flights to avoid such cases."
Cons: "British Airways neither a budget airline nor a lux airline. Doesn’t know what it is."

Since were in row 19, we were not offered any food or water, during lunch."

Pros: "Nothing particularly"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."
Cons: "flight was delayed about 2 hours. First hour waited in the plane. Why they've boarded us if we were not able to take off and had to wait in the aircraft? Near Heathrow, we took loops for about one hour. Expensive and offering nothing, no luggage, no seat selection, no meal on board. BA worst than lo"
Pros: "In time departure and friendly staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great communication from all aspects of crew etc during our delay. Fantastic flight crew who are very sweet and caring. I also enjoyed that we had meals on the flight and didn’t have to pay. That is such a simple but wonderful things."
Cons: "Delayed due to storms etc. Never ideal."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after boarding us and letting us sit on the plane on the rollway for 2 hours."

Cons: "Food a joke in club, 1/4 of a dry sandwich. No thanks."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The overall flight experience was positive."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, food good and staff OK"
Cons: "Boarding experience total Chaos. Late departure for no good reason, watched our plane at the gate being prepared for over an hour, we finally took off but missed our connection and therefore missed our Cruise Ship departure. We were put up in a hotel but upon landing in Rome, we opted to wait at the airport in lieu of the second hotel because of the timing as we had to catch a 6 a.m. train to get to Livorno to meet the Ship, it's first stop. Up for 36 hrs as we got little sleep, and were very tired."
Pros: "Nothing the worst customer service I ever had"
Cons: "The flight was canceled due to mechanical difficulties and British airways delayed helping us for 2 hours and then told us to use the phone 800 number to book a different flight. we needed to connect in London for the flight to Tel Aviv. The man on the phone barely spoke English and set us up with a flight that would not get us to our destination in time for our religious Sabbath Friday night. When we tried to explain the situation he hung up on us. We called back and tried to explain again we either spoke to the same man or another Indian man whom also spoke unintelligible English and he also hung up on us. In the mean time my wife spoke with the counter agents and they tried to find us another flight but by now other airline counters were closed. An hour later I tried the 800 number again and spoke again with the same Indian guy, when I asked to speak to a manager he gave me a hard time then finally said ok, put me on hold which I stayed for a while and realized he just put me on hold indefinitely. Finally after being in the airport for 9 hours we found a flight from United and a family member booked it online for us which we took to Tel Aviv and got us here only 2 hours later than our original flight which had a 12 hour layover in London and we were going to spend time touring but did not get to. As far as I am concerned British Airways has done a horrible job and no one should ever fly with them again. Unfortunately our flight home is with them I hope it goes smooth."

Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Delayed flight Inflight entertainment notnworking"

Cons: "entertainment system - very old and no way to get power for personal devices. This is a problem for such long flights"
Pros: "Timing of flight. Gate not too distant at Gatwick.."
Cons: "The check in and seat allocation process is awful. Boarding was chaotic with passengers still standing as we rolled back (quite sensibly the pilot did not want to miss the slot). Sitting around rows 19/20 means that even on an a two hour flight, you risk attendants never reaching you with the trolley."
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "5h before take off, it was impossible to have 2 seats next to another!!! we were even on different floors in the plane! the employees at the counter and then in the Heathrow airport were not able to join. on mentioned that the plane had been overbooked. I thought these practices had stopped. only the employee at the gate managed to move us to be at least on the same floor of the plane. very disappointed."
