Cons: "free wifi"
Cons: "was a packed old plane. It left nearly 2 hours late without any proper explanation food was awful the service was dull. It was a very bad experience overall and checking in and making my reservation was bad because all the information BA already has about me I had to re-enter including my passport."
Pros: "They kept us up to date throughout the whole process"
Cons: "I could have had a seat next to my thirteen year old and I didn’t get my seat arrangements unit I was boarding the plane."

Cons: "Very spice food"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was OK. I had Hindu meal and it was hot and tasty but salty."

Pros: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."

Cons: "The airlines are pushing people to upgrade with those ever shrinking seats.
