Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "BA cancelled my flight, but did offer an alternate on Lufthansa on same day,"
Cons: "Being notified of the cancellation, instead of accidentally finding out about it. Very poor or lack of communication regarding cancellation due to pilots' strike."
Pros: "the crew was courteous and did their best to address problems that were beyond their control. alcoholic beverages are free."
Cons: "the light and most of the screen features did not work in our seats. I have encountered this problem before. this is a long and expensive flight for this stuff not to work. the food (special meal, asian vegetarian) was an awful, undistinguishable mush--poor presentation and dubious nutritional value"
Cons: "way too crowded"
Pros: "It was a short trip of less than two hours. So, there was no entertainment, no charging stations for iPhones or iPads to watch personal electronic devices. All food including still water cost money. It’s advertised as this; the staff were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "A small pack of pretzels and free cup of water would have been nice."
Cons: "Delayed by 1. 5 hours!"
Pros: "Crew member was especially gentle, kind and resourceful. She gave toys to small upset child sitting across the isle from us. Child became calm."
Cons: "Timing of the meals. Would rather have slept after take off and had a substantial breakfast before landing."
Pros: "Overall it was fine. Friendly staff, everything pretty efficient."
Cons: "Truly disappointed to find that BA has decided to charge for ANY beverage whatsoever, even tea. I have such fond memories of flying BA years ago. My husband and I so enjoyed the disposable plastic blue teacups that we brought them home with us and still use them as kitchen scoops all these years later. I know that may seem silly, but even without that nostalgic memory, it just feels SUPER unpleasant to have to pay for the basic (non-alcoholic) beverage service. Honestly, just charge a few bucks extra on the ticket in the first place."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The boarding was fairly organised. That’s about it."
Cons: "I don’t know what the problem was with the air flow but it was hot and stuffy. The flight attendant tried to fix it several times but it was miserable. The seats are extremely narrow. No usb plugs and very little selection of movies."
Cons: "Cramped seating with no leg room and dinner was barely edible."
Pros: "I have to rate British Airways as a 10 out of 10 in almost all categories...comfort of the plane, food and service, boarding, notifications, crew, etc. In particular, the long haul flight from London to Seattle everything was truly top notch!"
Cons: "Their baggage handlers damaged several parts on my checked-in luggage...three zipper pulls and one clasp. What are they doing with the bags? How can they damage so many things in one fell swoop? This is a good quality Atlantic suitcase. Also, on the short flights, in this case Madrid to London, they are now charging for EVERYTHING...even water and coffee. They said it was a new policy as of 1/1/2018."
Pros: "Sitting in exist row with leg room"
Cons: "Seats are small, not enough elbow space. Movie selection was bad."
Cons: "There was a problem in the pilot flying from London to Riyadh and did not go to us tomorrow, I do not know is the reason you (KAYAK) or they are this problem is very large and I am not satisfied with this service"
Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Pros: "Good pilots. Safe flight."
Cons: "No free beverages between Milan and London! This is the very first time I have not given free water!"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and the hot dinner and light breakfast were good."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped in economy. There was very little room to move in our seats, and the knees of the fellow behind me were against the back of my seat."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Pros: "Able to stretch legs."
Cons: "Quality of food served London to Los Angeles needs to be taken to a higher level."

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "My monitor didn’t work and I asked about it twice. Two crew members said they would look into it but it never got reset."
Cons: "I told the ground crew that I would prefer an aisle seat when I checked in, and she acknowledged my need. Yet, it turned out that I was given a window seat while there are vacant aisle seats on the plane."
Pros: "Excellent service and the crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Staff, timeliness and overall flight experience was above average."
Cons: "The entertainment system can be improved."
Pros: "The entertainment system & the food."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight and there was no lunch before arrival..."
Pros: "Taking off, flight, & landing were ok."
Cons: "Delayed flight Weight limit of 23kgs. made us carry too much carry-on luggage. Entertainment was really poor compared with Emirates. The flight attendant with the long hair serving Economy Class was not friendly. In fact, He was almost shouting at the passengers especially two ladies wearing hijab. With all honest, BA is not the same airline that it used to be."
Pros: "Great crew, and delicious food! The seats were not bad either."
Cons: "The entertainment system was outdated."
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats were gorgeous!"

Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "No entertainment in board and the AC dripped on me."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and attentive. The food and entertainment were good. We had a large meal, a light meal, and a snack for an 11 hour flight. Plus drinks. The lights were kept off for half the time so we could sleep or rest."
Cons: "The seats are horribly crowded. If the person in front of you lowers their seat back (as mine did) you have about 8 inches from your face to their seat back. That with already very little seat room and I felt as though I was in a straight jacket for much of the flight."
Cons: "delays, loud drunk in boarding area in Amsterdam that had been removed from his flight,"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very limited seat spacing we were very much jammed into the aircraft. Also, there was no service offered, I could not even get a cup of water"
Pros: "I was not able to get one glass of water to take my medication, without having to pay for it. British Airways has become one of the worse airlines."
Cons: "Plane was late boarding, updates were not prompt."
Cons: "Online check in was not available, despite 24 hour checkin being advertised. Expect your seat preferences to be limited unless you pay $35-$85 per flight to pick your seat in advance."
Cons: "Heathrow connection process almost caused me to miss my flight, despite having 2 hours between connections. Security officer at Heathrow was very unprofessional, and took a great pleasure in delaying my processing through the security line. Specifically, I did not remove a PHONE BATTERY CHARGER from my carry-on for screening, so he proceeded to dump out the whole backpack contents, and then purposefully was very slow about putting things back in one by one.As an active duty police officer I understand the need for security and follow all the regulations and instructions to the best of my abilities. However in this case the security officer went out of his way to make the process as slow as he could. Very bad, stressful experience traveling on BA with connection at Heathrow."
Pros: "Staff are all great. No fuss and every thing on time."
Cons: "It's economy class and always cramped. Standards slipping in the toilets a little. Seats are getting worn. The entertainment choice could be better. Food quality has also gone down"
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: "Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "I though the food was OK. I liked the mini sized soda cans they gave."
Pros: "Boarding staff was confused and took al long time. The crew were nice enough but disinterested in serving us and were annoyed when I asked for a few crackers or bread to help with a stomach ache. Never got any. I had to get up several times to ask for water. Comfort was ok and plane was warm enough. There was several people who came and sat down next to me in the open seat, 6 or 7 different people who left their own seats elsewhere on the plane and came to sit next to me in the open seat. One woman brought her child over, asked me to love another seat over, so her child could lay down and put his feet in my lap. Then, when Inledt for the ladies room, she left him there to kick the seat in front of him and throw his tuna fish sandwich pieces on me and on the floor. I never agreed to play nanny to her child and after I'd paid $750 for a one way ticket from TPA to AMS, I didn't think I should have to. The mother gave me an earful of her bad language when I asked her to take care of her own child and take him and his fishy tuna sandwich back to his own designated seat. I had asked a male flight attendant to handle the situation, neither he nor the other staff, who stood by, cared that it was disturbing me, or that the other passengers were playing musical chairs with empty seats all night. I have flown British Air more than 100 times in my life. For 35 years it was my go to airline for step up in quality, service and class. This time I could have flown several other airlines that would have been $379, $400, 547, 650 for the same flight TPA to London Gatwick then AMS, instead I opted to pay a little more and thought I'd get a little more. Not any more on British Air. Other passengers on the flight were rested when they arrived. Not me, I was tired and disappointed and kicking myself for paying more to fly British Air. This is sadly understandable, as all quality is down with alot of airlines. But it's particularly disappointing that I'm saying that about British Air after all these years. I have only complained one time to an airline over 30 years. This will be my second time. I plan to send this complaint to British Air and ask for a refund."
Pros: "The crew were ok, nothing really to comment on bad or good."
Cons: "The boarding area was just a corridor. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. At check in there were not nearly enough staff to handle the volume of customers checking in."
Pros: "my vegetarian meals were excellent, very pleasant crew"
Cons: "not a great selection of movies, was hot a lot of the flight"
Cons: "The flight got delayed and I couldn't make it for the connection flight. I waited for 6 hours to rebook the flight and BA booked a hotel 2hours far from the airport by bus... I got to LA a day after but my baggage didn't arrive. I got it back 4DAYS after. All of my experience was just horrible."
Cons: "Very slow operations at the Heathrow airport."
Pros: "Nice and polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Breakfast was very poor and bad."
Pros: "Flight to Riyadh was relatively empty so we could stretch out."
Cons: "Disliked the fact that the crew would bring food out and 5 mins later came back and picked up the tray. They were rude enough to pick up my tray while I was still eating. Will try to avoid BA in future."
