Cons: "I badly needed more leg room."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess with a long delay and change of gate. The flight was one hour late and we missed our connection. Because it was on a different airway"
Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "They don’t even give you a cup of water, a horrible low cost airline with premium pretences! Gatwick is a horrible airport to fly to."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Enough room to sit. The worst cramped seat I have ever had to fly in."
Pros: "Good service, boarded quick and landed early"
Cons: "Seat spacing too close, no leg room. Charge for all snacks. Need to enforce carry on limits."
Cons: "No food served on this flight."
Cons: "There was a delay of more than an hour so I had to run for my connecting flight then my bags didn't make the flight."
Cons: "Seat clearance not good"
Pros: "Great service Yummy meals Free movies to watch Comfortable seats with use of pillow and blanket"
Pros: "The aircraft got off the ground. I woke up, we landed, and I exited the aircraft. I secretly wondered where we were."
Cons: "When I arrived at the security area for the hop to LAX, I told the agent that I was pre-screened. "That's nice," she said. "Now take off those shoes and your belt, put all liquids and creams in this bag, and get in line.""
Pros: "Loved the 787. One flight attendant was just great. She made the difference on the flight! Didn't get her name but the trip was made better by her. Thank you!"
Cons: "My flight from Venice was almost 2 hours late leaving. I missed my connecting flight to Baltimore and was removed from the list even though the Baltimore flight left about 15 minutes late. I had 25 minutes to make it to my connecting flight but was already removed. Airline said I had to be through security within 35 minutes of the flight. I could not get a flight out until the next day."
Pros: "Fast and friendly."
Cons: "My seat did not recline. There was no charger for a phone or screens to watch anything or WiFi on the flight."
Cons: "Didn’t realize you had to pay for coffee or a non-alcoholic drink until after we were asked what we’d like to drink."
Pros: "BA overall service was good."
Cons: "Boarding at venice was a disaster. they changed gate without annoncing it in english. I am sure they did it in Italian but not every travel speaks italian. getting on bus to airplane was not organized at all. staff let people ahead of me taking their carry on bags larger than my normal size bag but asked me to check in mine. i thought perhaps i am amoung the last and there is no room left. how ever while i was waiting they let many others take their carry on with them. i explained them that i have expensive Murrano glass in my carry on and prefer not to check in or at least provide a tag to mark it fragile. response was that we are out of tag! and i have no choioce. i was very upset theway they trreated me and told them i will file a complain and took their picture. almost by the time i was getting on bus one of crew approached me with at Fragile tag to add to my bag. after all when i received my carry on bag in LAX many of my gifts were smashed and broken."
Pros: "Easy on and off the plane"
Cons: "Having to take the shuttle to the gate."
Pros: "The crew was so kind and helpful!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding and exiting the plane was fairly quick. There were 2 exits we used which sped up the process."
Cons: "The rude British Airways representatives at check in should be retrained. One gentleman asked me if I wanted to check in my carry on because the flight was full. He said it was optional and I said no. He continued to pressure me into doing this and I clearly told him no several times. I guess he got upset that I didn’t wanna check in my bags that he asked me to place my SMALL CARRY ON (my backpack) in the luggage size checker to verify it fit. It did fit except a small part poked out because I had stuffed some souvenirs in there. It was clearly small and could clearly fit under my seat, but he said I had to check it in. This angered me but I kept my cool and walked away. Customer service doesnt start with British Airways."
Cons: "No free snacks neither a cup of water."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Tvs were dated"
Cons: "Drinks not complimentary. The tickets we bought come with one checked bag for free, but the airline said since we bought it on Kayak it doesn't come with a free checked bag. Had to pay an extra $40 for each. Deceptive policy if you ask me on behalf of British Airways."
Pros: "Clean plane; friendly crew..."
Cons: "BA charges for everything on the plane, even water!"
Pros: "Boarding was swift and timely, seats ok"
Cons: "There was an engine problem and they told us while we were taxiing. Went back for more check nd fierce several trials they had to repair the problem. This cause a delay of two hour during which we had to sit in the plane and no drinks or snacks of any kind were offered. But what’s worse there were vague, confused and misleading information given both by the captain and the crew regarding the connecting flights. As matter of fact, although I arrived with a two hour delay and had only one hour for my connection, I followed the instructions and run like hell(literally)to the boarding gate. I made it for a few minutes. The personnel was very friendly and helpful and they made all they could to check me on the flight just to find out BA had cancelled my booking even before my arrival to London. I made it home and they apologized but this is not how I expected BA to handle a delay(which I understand can happen)."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. There was not enough room for people to wait, no queuing in place nor priority boarding. We were in row 19 (so mid way through the plane) and by the time the refreshment trolley got to us a large majority of the food AND drink was sold out - seemed very strange!"
Cons: "Food, but surprised that they served anything!"
Pros: "Nothing. A large group (100) of passengers flying from Venice to Heathrow to make our connections to the US were redirected to Gatwick Airport 10 hours after our original departure time. No British Airways personnel was presen"
Cons: "Hated every minute of it."
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Indifferent inflight service is probably a compliment. The worst insult was to the 120 passengers whose flight to Heathrow was cancelled. They waited hours for the flight to Gatwick. On arrival BA announced that the buses that were promised by ground staff in Venice had not been arranged because BA didn't have the resources at hand. Useless as usual!"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and courteous"
Pros: "Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Having to pay for coffee! And it tasted terrible! C'mon!"
Pros: "I liked that I got home safe"
Cons: "I didn't like the 2 hour delay to my schedule. Zero complimentary drinks or snacks to say sorry. Bumpy ride for two and half hours. Stuck on the tarmac at Gatwick for 40 minutes."
Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"
Pros: "The crew was ON TOP OF IT."
Cons: "It was shocking that there wasn't even an offer of a glass of water during the 2-1/2 flight -- unless we paid for it. The crew went through once with their cart of purchase offerings and that was it. Shameful."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Food Options were limited, Due to extra security in Gatwick with a 1 hr Layover, we were nearly left behind. To finish it off British Airways lost our luggage. I am very disappointed with British Airlines. This is the absolute worst experience flying I have ever had. I do not recommend anyone flying British Airways."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The lady at check in was the most rude customer service I have ever had. There was confusion with flights and I was trying to check in well before time and she said no it's too late and walked off. I then saw her later at 8:50 (my flight was at 9:25) I said excuse me that was my flight and she goes I'm busy trying to fuel and stormed off. The ladies at the airport tried to help me. So now I have to wait over night at the aiport for 17 hours because the check out lady wouldn't give me 1 minute to speak to her well before check in would've been closed because she was too busy in a hurry and extremely rude!"
Cons: "We checked in exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes before scheduled departure time, as previously instructed when we attempted check-in some three-and-a-half hours before departure. Thus we were, I'm fairly certain, the second couple to check in for the entire flight. I asked the agent if the fare we paid allowed us a checked piece of luggage. She said that, yes, we were entitled to one checked piece per passenger at no charge. That being the case, I asked the agent to issue a refund for the two Checked Baggage fees my wife had paid online. She insisted there was nothing she could do about it and it was totally out of her hands. I explained to her my understanding that such refund must be requested PRIOR TO CHECK-IN, but she reiterated there was nothing she could do, and offered no solution whatsoever. In addition, the agent insisted that we were not allowed to carry-on a cabin bag in addition to a personal item. When I asserted my rights (See Note 1), she had the temerity to say "You should know British Airlines' policy if you buy a ticket." Trying another tack, I asked who DID get to use the overhead lockers, since they were only allowing under-seat sized Personal Items to be brought on-board. She replied that the "no cabin baggage" policy applied "after the first 30 passengers boarded the plane." (Please recall that we were the second couple ON THE ENTIRE PLANE to check-in, and thus should make that artificial "cut-off." (Also, as a Million Mile flyer with your partner, American Airlines, I believe we're entitled to Priority Boarding.) Concerned about the valuable items in the cabin bag she was effectively commandeering, I inquired about the airlines Limits of Liability in case of Loss or Damage. She said she had no idea. I then asked to see a copy of the airline's Conditions of Carriage. But she was either unable or unwilling to provide same. I arrived very, very early to ensure these sorts of problems could be ironed-out before departure, and am frankly appalled by the lack of knowledge, professionalism and judgement the airline exhibited in this instance. Also: On-board service was so incredibly slow, the last two rows were not served until 15 minutes prior to landing. ("There you go, sir. Bottoms up... and be quick about it! ;-) Bill B.

Pros: "Staff where very pleasant."
Cons: "Airport check in was drastically understaffed. The worst I have experienced. Airplane seating was cramped."
Pros: "flight attendants excellent...food was not good.but Fri is were great. Thank you"
Cons: "Boarding by steps, being charged for coffee when all other airlines provide it as complimentary service. morning snack would have been nice. The head flight attendant have a heavy Italian accent and spoke English so fast he couldn't be understood."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and took forever to get me on a new flight. On thw way back British airways messed up my return flight completly inconviencing us and created a very stressful situation. Lost over $400 becuase of delayed flight and I will be contacting BA in terms of compensation for not only my lost money but time."
Pros: "Timely departure. Free tea and biscuits. No queues at check in. Generous baggage allowance."
Cons: "Very expensive Pre check in seat selection."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing: everything was beyond expectations"
Pros: "although we could not checkin online until 24 hours before hand and we didn't have a choice in choosing our seats,my husband and I had seats together. British air was able to move us to an isle seat once everyone boarded"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful. We has disability issues and they were very attentive to our needs."
Cons: "Two pieces of our luggage (my wife's wheelchair and walker) were not forwarded to Heathrow from Venice as I requested and expected. I don't blame the plane crew, but the ground personnel for not following through on what they promised to do. Venice airport did not seem to be very efficient or competent. Our daughter and her boyfriend were traveling with us and could not get seat assignment until they were literally ready to board the plane, so consequently, there checked luggage was also not on the plane in Seattle. We have promised to get our luggage today (9/28/16). I hope so, you have my wife's wheelchair which is making it very hard for us to get around."
Cons: "Very rude crew, they did not carry enough food options .."
