Cons: "I booked flight for my parents from Kayak for the first time. The confirmation number was: KAYAK Booking Reference KE40651 British Airways Record Locator 3IMN38 Booking Date Jan 24, 2021 So British airways cancelled the flight may days before the flight date and they notified Kayak but Kayak sent me no notification. At the time of check in we found that the flight was cancelled. It was such a hassle. I called kayak to rebook frantically since it was very important to travel right away. Your customer service was pathetic. I was told to cancel my british airways reservation and then I have to wait 24 hours for another department to call me to talk to me about rebooking choices. There was no concern from your customer service that since u are at fault so make correction for it right away by rebooking it. You guys didnt inform us for cancellation of the flight that happened days before the flight. I didnt like what Kayak rep was telling me and called British airways again to see if they would do something. They then were able to rebook me the following day with 2 stops instead of one stop which I had booked. So my parents took the flight with one day delay with extra stops. I had such a horrible experience with Kayak. I will never rebook from Kayak again."

Pros: "The crew generally is kind and patient. This older aircraft had new seats installed."
Cons: "BA now doesn’t even provide you with a glass of water or peanuts for free. Everything is buy on board like Easyjet or Ryannair. Entertainment is non-existent as are any type of power outlets. Seat pitch is very tight."
Pros: "The plane was newly refurbished. Entertainment was excellent. Seat room, or course, is an issue and comfort was a little above average for economy, but the operation was well-run, the food was descent, and entertainment was solid."

Pros: "Nothing This is not what i wanted on an international flight ."

I feel like this was planned so they could sell out seats at a higher price last minute Fix all the above Call me to make this right"

Cons: "That they Charged Exec Platinum for water"
Pros: "As with every BA flight ive experienced, the crew is charming and witty, fun to talk to."

Pros: "Overall an outstanding experience. Staff is attentive and cheerfully accommodated people throughout the flight. No request was denied as far as I could tell."

Pros: "Me and my husband were upgraded from world traveler plus to business class, which we are thankful for"
Cons: "We were unable to order special meal online and were told to contact onboard crew for meals. When we contacted them inflight, they said they don’t have meals!!! And we were left to starve the whole night, while food was served for all around us. The really shocking thing is none of the crew had the courtesy to offer some snacks or bread. These especially when we were seated in business class!"

Cons: "Flight attended was unfrontly.. bad food..."
Pros: "Good seats, good attention to the kids prior boarding."
Cons: "Language with the personnel was a minus. An experienced flight attendant uttered "Jesus F..... Christ" - as a reaction to people getting up before seatbelt signs have been switched off seems fair, the wordage is unacceptable from an airline that ought to be a pillar of decency."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Boarding was exceptionally well-handled. Boarding passess/passports were checked prior to entering the boarding area and seating started when people came into the boarding area so passengers were finltering onto the plane immediately without the first calls for priority passengers."
Cons: "Short flight, not much to notice or complain about."
Cons: "the fact I had to 464 pounds robbing b"
Pros: "The mechanics of the flight were OK but the use of a shuttle bus and steps in LHR was uncomfortable"
Cons: "The option to buy food etc, as the only option on a short midmorning flight struck me as a penny-pinching and mean-spirited economy that is creeping gradually more pervasively into British Airways service these days."

Cons: "Food could be a bit better,"

Pros: "The crew were awesome-very polite, friendly and helpful! Food was also excellent."
Cons: "Seats broken..no free deink"
Pros: "The agents and crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The boarding was timely, the crew was very friendly. The service was exceptional. The only issue was seating, too cramped. I am 5'11"and weigh 135. I was uncomfortable in my seat. My husband was uncomfortable in his seat. This made a 9 hour flight rough. The crew, food and entertainment were great, but the seating made me think twice about flying to Europe on British Airlines in the future."
Pros: "That the flight was not full and empty seats to stretch out your legs"
Cons: "The movie selection was poor. Sat near crying baby and autistic kid very unpleasant. Should have section for family and kids and a way to alert other passengers of young children seating."
Pros: "Decent people running the flight. More or less on time."
Cons: "Cramped seating. No room at all for a laptop...which is very inconvenient"
Cons: "We purchased tickets months in advance. We were unable to check in online ahead of time so they put us on standby. We were informed by the airline that they overbook 20% - always. I purchased a seat on that flight, I should have been guaranteed that I got it. Being unable to check in early should not be a cause to bump us."
Pros: "Complimentary beverages with a lovely snack box and comfortable economy class seating on a short flight were higjlights"
Cons: "The link-up to the connecting flight was confusing. The arrival gate changed. We were direct to board a bus which took us away from the terminal where we arrived back to the scheduled terminal. We then had to take a bus back tot the original terminal to catch our departure. We were then directed to go directly to the gate. We had no chance to shop or dine at the supposedly beautiful Heathrow. Instead, we were given a tour of the facilities' bowels."
Cons: "It amazes me that ba is starting having food and customer service standards below third tier airliners such as Jetstar. This airplane was new and was reasonable but flight to Bangkok on ba 0009 was simple terrible from extremely cold temperatures (4 times asked if something can be done about it an nothing was done despite dozens people requesting double blankets in the plane) entertainment screens were such a poor quality that would not be surprised me if they were 20 years old. Food was terrible and suffice to say that my entertainment screen poped out during the flight with all wiring sticking out. Cabin crew comment was that "was really not good sir" and they apologiesed but to put passengers in such a danger of short circuit and overall discomfort is mind boggling. If you do not have funds to maintain planes and provide service expected from BA please declare bunkraptcy to avoid deceiving customers of your quality of service build in the past."
