A little more space in economy would be great. I’m a small person 5’2” and 125lbs and I felt squished in like I was sitting on top of the people all around me. I can imagine how the other taller and larger folks felt.
The crew members were wonderfully responsive to requests such as a Kosher meal when we forgot to order it in advance. While it was not available on the PHX to London flight, the steward found one for me on the London to Tel Aviv leg of my journey. In any event, the stewardess on that first flight took the time to explain to me why there were no extra Kosher meals. Both parts of my travel were very comfortable. Sylvia D.
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."
Cons: "Excellent legroom, unlike flight out with American Airlines. I was just unlucky in choice of seat"
Cons: "At BA staff treats you inconsistent"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and very helpful!!! Wine included was awesome."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. My TV screen kept going in and out. We"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was supposed to have a handicap chair in London & did not so things were difficult for me."
Pros: "Breakfast burritos were a nice change."
Cons: "I did not like a seat under E row as the seats feel. Crammed."
Cons: "This BA flight has been a mainstay for those of us in Phoenix to fly nonstop to Europe for years . Always on time . Good service . Dreaded the flight back on American flight ( via British Air). Was pleasantly surprised with a new Dreamliner which made the BA Boeing seem quite old and shabby."
Cons: "The Boeing 747-400 is absolutely the WORST designed aircraft ever — Business Class cubicles are cramped with no spaces for placing items, etc. And, this was after the very worst boarding procedures!"
Pros: "The title says it all"
Cons: "Paid for business class felt like economy class. No entertainment. Unbelievable! I am NOT looking forward to the return flight home, and will never fly British Aiirlines again."
Cons: "Still at lhr waiting for a 20:55 flight to Athens then a 5am flight to Mykonos. Missed a night of our trip."
Pros: "Liked the big plane. Didn't particularly like the food. And although enough alcohol was offered, I thought we didn't get enough to drink to stay hydrated. ( I meant water/thee)"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection out of London heathrow to Budapest."
Cons: "Traveling business class it felt as if I am traveling in city bus plane was so old seats were falling apart and above all the way ba staff most unfriendly people I was just imagining if this they do in business class what they must be doing in economy class I will not recommend any one to travel from Phoenix to Delhi on B A Jiten"
Pros: "Late taking off, but made up time in the air."
Cons: "For a long flight, it is very cramped."
Pros: "The website would not allow me to enter my passport details as I have PR status. As a result I could not select a seat of choice. it would be much better if PR details could be added when passport info is not accepted. The flight was fine"
Pros: "I liked that the flight crew were very friendly and helpful. The food was also pretty good overall"
Cons: "Cancellations and delays before my flight were horrible. The staff on the phone were rude and not helpful at all after waiting over an hour to speak with them."
Cons: "1. Plane engine set fire while taking off... leaking fuel. 2. My bag fee was waived, but the next day after being grounded and put in a cheap hotel for the night, I was RECHARGED $100. 3. They knew my flight left at 9pm, still gave me ONLY 1 hotel voucher so I was kicked out of the hotel at 12pm with NOWHERE to go for NINE HOURS with 125lbs of luggage. 4. They provided a good voucher, but the cheap hotel they put me in didn't have a kitchen, USELESS. 5. The flight was LATE getting to London the next day and I missed my BRITISH Airway connecting flight to Thailand. Had to wait another 7 HOURS to get a flight out. 6. Terrible service, over priced and rude agents. The agent told me " I don't know who waived your fee yesterday, but I'm not." Cold, considering the plane I was on the day before was shooting fire about to explode. 7. I was rebooked no choice of seating or consideration."
Pros: "Everything was absolutely spot on except for larger than average people not being catered for."
Cons: "Being a big lad (6'6") it was difficult to get comfortable even with the extra leg room."
Pros: "The flight and everything associated with it. Food, crew etc"
Cons: "Customer services failed me"
Pros: "Oh my gosh.... I had the best flight ever. I wanted to be in Business Class, but the flight was so full, but when I sat down, there was an EMPTY SEAT next to me. What a beautiful thing. Flight was great, quiet and comfortable. Boarding was great and I enjoyed the my flight. Thank you:)"
Cons: "No WiFi available. Bad flight tracker."
Pros: "Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Snack trolley didn't reach the back seats due to the shortness of the flight. The only entertainment was an in flight magazine!"
Pros: "The cabin crew member working in the area where I sat, Marc, went above and beyond his duties to make the family sitting next to me feel comfortable. Two of the children had special needs, and Marc brought the family chocolate, joking with the kids, and was available when they needed help. Well done."
Cons: "The entertainment would sometimes pause, and the screen would go black for a moment. This was very minor though."
Pros: "Nice Staff, flight on time, good customer service (they're British)!"
Cons: "Diminishing space for the human passenger, tight legroom, seats lay back, which is great if you are in one and terrible if you are behind one. And it was hot. Two years in a row. At 30,000 feet, where it's 30 below outside."
Pros: "The pilot was great and got us to our destination and the bags came out quickly."
Cons: "There are no outlets for charging on this outdated flight and the seatbelt were dirty with crusty food. The TV was surprisingly tiny...like the smallest I've ever seen. The check in was also awful. The person that checked us in had no mercy. He made me shift around my bag for .8 kg"
Pros: "Not enough room in the seating area"
Pros: "Great flight, nice and short. Great crew, very helpful"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight and the seats were much smaller that I expected."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "no beverages or snacks offered or movies"
Cons: "I ordered a ginger ale onboard. When the stewardess took my order and went to swipe my card, he made a comment that sometimes they have difficulties with USA credit cards. He tried 3 different cards and then when nothing worded, he asked if I had pounds to pay with. I stated no, that I had Croatian crowns, Euros or US Dollars on me at that point in time. He then looked over at me and very rudely asked me why in the heck I ordered the drink to begin with. I was already embarrassed that he was having trouble with my cards so to yell at me in front of everyone so much to the point the lady in the next row heard hi and offered to buy my drink for me. I would like to point out that even he made the remark that the machine sometimes has difficulty taking US cards. How was I supposed to know that none of the three cards that I had on me wouldn't work. I never had any issues with either of those three cards after that incident. They worked just fine so it was clearly an issue with your machine not my cards. I feel it was very inappropriate for him to treat me that way (especially over a stupid soda). My luggage then didn't make it to Ibiza in time because it got stuck in London due to my short layover. If BA can't figure out how to get the luggage transferred within that short of a period, they should not offer flights that close to each other. Secondly, I left a really nice down pillow and bag on my flight from London to Ibiza and I checked the lost in found at the Ibiza airport and it was never turned in. I never recommend BA to anyone."
Pros: "The quality of the food was amazing. Flight attendants were very helpful and pleasant. The movie options were also wonderful."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to get comfortable. The lights that shine from above us were shining directly on me for a row behind me and for the person sitting on my left. Boarding was somewhat unorganized as there were people boarding in 2 areas."
Pros: "Flight crew was really polite. Very attentive and remembered what was requested."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Seats were really tiny. Crammed in, in all directions"
Pros: "Crew were nice and friendly. Flight left a little late but made up the time even after the big IT disaster of the day before."
Cons: "Small seats with too much recline of person in front. An odd and chaotic method for boarding."
Pros: "Mostly everything was ok."
Cons: "I received water only once (plus coffe/tea option and small juice for breakfast). I needed to ask for water, i've also heard others asking for."
Pros: "Flights attend"
Pros: "Just the right amount of flight time and arriving early in the morning. Dreamliner makes the flight much easier. Always get either 3rd or 7th row seats with window bed and free access to isle."
Cons: "Usually starts late sometimes in London, and always on some remote gate."
Cons: "Tried to change my return flight from Phoenix to Miami. Typical Legacy rigid inflexibility made it impossible."
Cons: "Old airplane, on one chair the seatbelt didn't work, on the next chair it didn't have the cushion."
Cons: "Poor queuing system Very poor food Four hour trip and they only served a pack of crisps and a juice glass No other choice, no option to purchase you stay hungry and thirsty till the end"
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was late, that happens. There was no sufficient information about it though. Boarding was badly organized (could not hear BA staff yelling through the crowd). The 1000-year old 747s are really inconvenient and you could not believe how small the seating space is. To dot the i, of course we missed our connecting flight and got no information about it, again, only after running across half of Heathrow... About missing the connecting flight: it could have been avoidable with just a minimal amont of effort, or willingness, or any sign of care towards the passengers. Customer service is waaaaay behind my expectations."
Pros: "Food was good and drink selection was great."
Cons: "Personal TV screen had some visual issues. Headrest wouldn't retain its position."
Pros: "Great service, French champagne on board - super nice"
Pros: "Hard to find anything positive."
Cons: "Each leg of the trip was delayed by so much that I missed each following connection. Got to Prague and found out my luggage had been lost. After filing a claim about 8:30 pm on the 19th, I had to take a taxi into town because my hotel car had been taken out of service for the night. Rotten trip to Prague."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "All good."
Cons: "I counted on the airline to scedule enough time on the layover in London. We had a delay and then we had to run to plane. And the luggage made it to us two days later."
