Cons: "The transfer was a pain. Signage at Toronto Airport is non existent. I had to stop and ask people which way to go 3 times"
Pros: "Safe landing"
Cons: "Was charged 65 pounds for checking one bag. This was a big news to me. BA claims it was because I booked through Kayak. Would not have booked the flight. Luggage cost is almost superior to flight cost. Forced me to check my overhead luggage. Flight was delayed one hour because we had to go back to gate to rebLANCE WEIGHT"
Pros: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"
Pros: "Flew Sydney to Heathrow and was very comfortable in my seat. Seemed wider than most and at 6ft 3 I had plenty of room to move my legs. Pleasantly surprised and actually looking forward to going home next week - just hope its the same 777 plane ! :)"
Cons: "The food was excellent - just not enough of it in between meals. No snacks offered and none that I could find anywhere! Will be making sure to bring some back with me on my flight ! Minor complaint on an otherwise excellent trip."
Pros: "I found everything to be acceptable for me."
Cons: "I was in seat 43A and the light from the galley was a mite bright from my seat, but I simply covered my head with the provided blanket and napped at will."
Pros: "It flies"
Cons: "No courtesy! At least soft drinks ought to be on the house - they even charge for water - disgusting compared to US airless that at least offer you nuts and a drink for free! BA is now in the EasyJet-RyanAir league! Awful!"
Pros: "Very busy flight but staff very professional"
Pros: "The staff in airplane was okay"
Cons: "The boarding staff are very rude"

Cons: "Headphone jack was broken and due to an issue at baggage check in Boston I stood in line of less than 30 people for 2 hours and almost missed my flight."
Pros: "Very helpful and courteous staff."
Cons: "I don't like that the armrests between seats don't go up all the way. That makes it impossible to stretch out if there's an empty seat next to you. Also, there's too big of a space between the window seat and the window, so you can't lean your head against the side of the plane to take a nap."
Cons: "We learned the connecting flight from BWI TO PHL was canceled when we tried to pull boarding passes.This started a five hour panic for our party of four which was a leisure travel nail biter. We lost a day, flew into JFK and had to make other arrangements to avoid canceling our trip."
Pros: "Staff, timeliness and overall flight experience was above average."
Cons: "The entertainment system can be improved."
Cons: "I ended up calling American Airlines and they changed my flight completely. I will never be using Kayak again as you made a stressful situation even more stressful. You don't care about your customers at all. If you did you would have a customer service here in America"
Pros: "Flight on time, good crew, got a direct gate position at FRA."
Cons: "Legroom in Club Europe is poor, seating in the front rows should not have been densified so much."
Pros: "Dealt nicely"

Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"

Pros: "Fantastic service and entertainment. One of my best flights in years."
Cons: "1st service was good. Second just ok."
Cons: "No screens to help time pass, enjoy watching movies on the longer trips. Offer a "snack" and free small drink would be helpful. Pretzels or chips. Explaining customs would be helpful for those of us who don't travel. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent food, loved the entertainment and maps screen."
Cons: "We paid for upgraded seats but ended up at the rear of the plane? Very disappointing, I have a refund request in the works."

Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early."

Cons: "Crew is lazy and rude. I had paid for extra legroom seats and it was not honored. Dreadful!"
Pros: "Professionalism of staff"
Cons: "Boarding system"
Pros: "They changed my seat when I asked them too."
Cons: "The stewardess told me for the last meal, that they ran out the no. Vegetarian meal so I must choose the veg one. Later he said he gave me the preference for the earlier meal so this one shouldn't be a problem if I didn't get what I asked for. Totally blew my mind. The audacity with which he gave me his explanation was extraordinary. Sorry British airways, don't need that attitude. Wrote to them about this, haven't yet replied back. The flight was pretty old by itself. Not like the ones that go from London to United States. The Seats were smaller and had a very uneasy contour, the entire plane just looked a little banged up. The crew always seemed in a rush, to busy to even hear or look around."
Pros: "It took off and landed intact"
Cons: "Late getting going and consequently late to arrive. This is the case for every BA flight from LHR to GLA that I've taken in the past two years. It's why I avoid LHR where possible."
Pros: "Staff did their best to be helpful and cheerfull to make up for a 3 hour delay on our flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "Seating and spacious cabin."
Cons: "Bus at GVA to furthest possible parking spot."
Cons: "The aircraft was downgraded from an A380 to a 777, flight was overbooked, food was not good."
Pros: "Dreamliner 787 was a great plane to travel."
Cons: "They ran out of our food preference so we got the mushroom risotto which was not very nice. On the way over to London from Houston they had a complementary snack bar that we thought was generous. This was not offered on the flight back to Houston despite us being in the air for a longer time."
