Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"

Cons: "at no point when buying my ticket did the site say zero bags were included.

One bag has always been included in the price of a ticket flying transatlantic."

Pros: "Nice crew, free snacks"
Cons: "For taller people flying economy sucks . The seats are always to small"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly. Plane was clean. And food was served quickly without the hassle of ordering from a menu and paying. And it was delicious.

Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "Crew and boarding, not much else to talk about. Late for take off, but made it on time"
Cons: "Late leaving and arriving."
Pros: "leg space in plane"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"

Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Cons: "It would be nice if at least snacks and a cup of water were provided."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant and we landed early."
Cons: "British Airways should at least give out small bottles of water or cookies to soften passengers affinity towards the airline. I did not buy anytjing but was also not served anything. In comparison to low cost carriers, I felt underappreciated."
Pros: "The flight was super relaxed and comfortable. We really loved the Magnum ice cream at the end of the flight."
Cons: "We Flew business class. Very ordinary."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to plane safety issues, but the crew fixed it and got us to London almost in time. I didn’t love that there were no vegan food options, and even if there had been, they ran out of fresh food by time we were served. Not great."
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Earphone, squashy seat, limited leg space in economy class"
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Cons: "Our BA flight from Vienna to London was 30 minuets delayed and we almost missed our connection. BA crews and captain never apologized or explained the reason. They didn’t bother to check and announce the gate of major connection flights like some other airlines would do. They just said “Check the departure information board when you arrive.” We made to our AA flight only it happened to be in the same terminal."
Cons: "Seats size for business class doesn’t meet level of business class"
Cons: "Possibly cleaner toilets......"
Cons: "They were late, once we were ready to board the plane it has been changed to another gate due to Brittish delay, so we had to do nother security review. We faced a bad attitude in the countter that was very dissapointing."
Cons: "it is ridiculous that i should have to pay 75 euro for my first bag. additionally, BA doesn't even give you free refreshments anymore!!!! When every other airline does better than BA on these fronts, why would I ever fly with them again?"
Cons: "I am 6.4 and don’t especially find bulk head seats very comfortable."
Pros: "This flight the only bonus was I actually had a seat."
Cons: "Two flight attendants to service the whole of Euro class meant waiting nearly two hours to be served a bottle of water and a sandwich. Too much time is lost trying to cook food and take the money. Just add £5 to every ticket and give the food as part of the service, you are not a budget airline Plus dont rub our noses in it by bringing meals from the first class galley to feed the crew at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "Transfer at the Heathrow airport was such a hustle. Even though we had about hour and a half for transfer, take getting off board into consideration, we were on the run to our next gate for about 50 minutes without stopping, barely had a chance to use a restroom. Longer transfer period is needed most definitely. Also at least complimentary glass of water would be nice on the board."
Pros: "Surprisingly comfortable seats for economy"
Cons: "Again rude personnel. Paying for water after flying over 9hrs from USA was not cool."
Cons: "Seat cushions inadequate; back support insufficient. Food mediocre."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, trying to put a brave face on standards they know are slipping"
Cons: "No breakfast, no snacks, tired seats, poor entertainment , dreadful food (and I LOVE airline food!)"
Pros: "It took off. It landed. No drama. 15 mins early."
Cons: "No complimentary hookers, whisky or cocaine"
Pros: "staff friendly."
Cons: "seat broken, screen broken. When fixed the choice of movies was very limited. In seat power not working, so couldn't work after battery exhausted. Flight attendants were all friendly but didn't respond to call button or other requests."
Cons: "trapped on this plane for over 3 hours and they can't even spring for a lousy soda and bag of crisps."
Pros: "The flight was a bit too short to really judge, But the crew was pleasant and the flight was fine."
Pros: "Everything was okay! The plane was kind of empty and that why the service was excellent, the crew very friendly."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant & food was fine."
Cons: "The flight was late, which made us miss our next flight."
Pros: "announcements made by the pilot about weather and the flying conditions and travel time were very good."
Cons: "the plane was delayed and the check-in person gave me a different time for when the plane would leave vs what was on the boards. i was lucky that i did not listen to her or i would have missed my flight."
Pros: "I liked how quick it was."
Cons: "It was odd going from the terminal, down two flights of stairs, out into a wry crowded bus to the plane. Then the people unloading out bags took close to an hour and kept switching baggage carousels and confusing everyone."
Pros: "It was a short trip and the crew was good about making it as quick as possible (for boarding, debriefing, etc)."
Cons: "It was a short trip but they didn't have any sort of drink service. No entertainment either but that's expected for an hour long flight."
Pros: "The entertainment controls give many options which is nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "The attendants were not as helpful as I thought they should have been and actually were a bit unpleasant."
Cons: "You got delayed I almost missed my connection flight"
Cons: "I didnt like that there was no food or water to be purchased after security."
Pros: "Better to avoid BA. At least they should serve some water. Next time I'll use some other airlines to get to London."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and took care to explain what was happening and why."
Cons: "The new 'pay-as-you-go' model makes this premium national carrier more like a budget-end option. For instance, with the refreshments, not only do they not accept cash, but they don't accept the full range of bank cards (from main stream European banks). It was as frustrating for the crew as for the passengers."
Cons: "It was 1.5 hours late and I didn't even get water"
Pros: "The airbus 320 was clean and well maintained"
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: "My Entertainment device was broken"
Cons: "They wouldn't book is into our flight from a different terminal causing is to miss the flighr"
Pros: "The crew as ever were excellent"
Cons: "Who ever took the decision to charge for food and drink but still charge BA fares must have been a Trump Supporter!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane had some technical problems so they let us go inside the plane and we had to sit there for 3 hours while they were fixing licking gas situation. Flight was ok but we got food only once."
Cons: "No Food Left. No drinks"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Not enough carry on space this distortion made by less hold luggage"
Pros: "The flight was nice and short, the few was courteous and helpful. All as expected."
Cons: "This was really a bare-bone flight. They did serve a drink and peanuts, but it was a lunch time flight so one would expect at least some food. Heathrow was busy so went into a holding pattern which added time and some passengers became worried about their connections. Upon landing they mixed up baggage pickup and we had to wait a long time running between two conveyor belts looking for it."
Pros: "The staff on all flights were pleasant and very accommodating."
Pros: "The flight on BA was nice and service was good. The food was acceptable. I liked their entertainment - lots of good movies and other things to watch."
Cons: "The connection in London - just one hour - was absolutely not enough. It takes 15 minutes or so just to empty a large plane. Then, if you have to make a connection from one terminal to the other, as we did, you rush to a bus that drives you all the way across the airport. At that point you rush to find yourself faced with going through security yet again. All this made us miss our flight and turned what should have been a 10 hour trip into a 24 hour trip. That is British Airways fault for leaving so little time to connect. When you book your flights, be sure to have an hour and a half at the very least - preferably 2 hours."
Pros: "Short flight, no complaints. I liked that coffee was served with milk."
Cons: "No real complaints."
Pros: "Service was impeccable and perfectly timed. Food was good and quantity sufficient. Flight crew was friendly and had a lovely sense of humor and warmth. Movies made a long flight bearable."
Pros: "It made it."
Cons: "Once were on board our pilot informed us there would be a 1 hour hold time by the tower. After 20 minutes, things changed and we left. We arrived late, but it was Terminal 3 to Terminal 3. Fast right? Nope. Walked for days and then we got to go through security again. Arrived to gate. More of room with in access, but no out access. Good thing there were bathrooms in there - oh no wait - there weren't. Good long wait with kids before we could board."
