The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"

Cons: "If I had to pick one thing...it’s that their free WiFi is only on select planes...not all. Sorry nothing else to dislike."

Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "My first flight to DOHA was cancelled"
Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."
Cons: "The boarding was not handled properly. There was a 40 mins delay, keeping in mind it was never mentioned on the screens. When seeking guidance from crew members about the flight's boarding different answers were given at different time. First it was no delay, just the plane getting closer to the gate, later followed by a 10 mins wait that later became over 30 mins. Once we finally made it on the flight, when requesting a beverage the only option given is water or orange juice and if you have any dietary restrictions (even when providing said information to the airline) you will remain without food on the shorter flights."

Cons: "Some form of entertainment"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Free food"
Cons: "For a major carrier in Europe we expected more. Be Be prepared to pay for food and even a drink on a domestic flight. Seats tiny barely any leg room. Crew members appeared to be having a bad day not many welcoming smiles. I guess if you had to budget just pay use one of the other carriers"
Pros: "I did not"
Pros: "Plane was new and very comfortable. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants had to serve food/drinks, which they did the entire flight (literally, drink service took 2 hours). People got drunk and super loud. We were late leaving London which isn’t an issue except the people at the BA desk were the least helpful. We found out more from the pilots than anyone in the airport."

Cons: "i slept this whole ride so i don't have much to stay that was bad! Most of it just didn't apply to me!"

Cons: "Las películas no se podían poner desde el inicio"
Pros: "Quiet and smooth flight Dinner"
Cons: "BA seat configuration in business class"
Cons: "Still at lhr waiting for a 20:55 flight to Athens then a 5am flight to Mykonos. Missed a night of our trip."
Cons: "We waited in the plane for 5 hours and ended with a cancelled flight. We were rebooked out of Oakland the next day. Missed an entire day in Rome for our honeymoon, lost a night at a hotel, and lost money on a tour."
Pros: "Crew are helpful, attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Seats in Business Class are just okay, not great, but are completely doable for short flights."
Pros: "Received a lower than expected upgrade fare for Club World. The new Club World amenities are a big improvement over the older option."
Cons: "BA still needs to improve its Club World seat and update it. It is significantly behind the competition. The seat lacks meaningful storage options and if you don't have a window seat, there is absolutely no privacy."
Cons: "Boarding takes longer on BA than any other airline I've flown on. Breakfast was awful. Cream cheese on a white roll tastes like paste. You'll really could be doing better than this."
Pros: "Crew on the flight home was extremely friendly! Flights were all on time. Food service and drinks were very good. Great in flight entertainment options"
Cons: "Customer service personnel over the phone was so rude to me. Flight crew on the flight from dfw to lhr wasn’t friendly at all."
Pros: "Very rapid flight. Landed far before scheduled arrival(at least 25 minutes). Checked baggage was delivered before schedule arrival time. Crew was pleasant/helpful."
Cons: "Flight was changed from what was originally scheduled and purchased. I was informed of the change after the purchase before traveling. Thus I had 4 1/2 hours between flights."
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Must wait and buy new ticket to proceed to Bergen and may miss boat"
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Pros: "Crew in board was great"
Cons: "Representative at gate was rude reminding me I was late when we had to wait on bus for others."
Cons: "Because of a problem at the car rental place we were not able to check our bags until 50 minutes before the flight. British Airways would not take the bags and we missed our flights Neither webjet who had booked our flight or British Airways would help us figure out a new flight. We had to buy a whole new flight."
Cons: "no entertainment at all more significantly, no beverages at all? Flight attendants came through once with the beverage cart, but only asked the person at the end of our row if he wanted anything. He asked for juice assumed it would be complimentary but it wasn't. They offered to get him a water. The flight attendants did not offer me or the man next to me anything at all. Everyone knows that air travel is dehydrating - I can't believe BA doesn't give provide complimentary water and juice."
Cons: "horrible seating"
Pros: "Long wait between flights"
Cons: "No snack."
Cons: "Landed in London late missed the connection flight. BA only had 1 flt a day going to Santorini....Next days flt completely booked...Had to fly from Lon to Madrid to Athens then to Santorini.....Took 38 hrs traveling time to get to our destination...Not a happy camper!!!!!"
Cons: "The plane was changed and no.one alerted us that our seats were relocated. Qhen we went to board the shuttle bus to the tarmac we were.pullednout of the.line and made to wait 25 minutes and ended up.being the last people to board. We arrived at the airport 2 hours in advance and cpuld have handled this in.advance if we had been notified properly. The BA employee checking us in didn't care that he pulled us and made us wait.... we were very unhappy as to how this was handled."
Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Excellent service, the entire flight staff was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the size of the drinks. Regular sized soft drinks, juice or water would have been better especially for 11 hours in a pressurized cabin. I had to ask several times for more water until I found a small water dispenser at the back of the plane where I could refill my water bottle without having to ask the staff. The attendants were always more than happy to give me extra water when I asked"
Pros: "Was upgraded to Premium Economy which was a pleasant surprise. The cabin crew was lovely and the flight was pleasant"
Pros: "I had purchased an upgrade to economy plus --- it was great--- much more expensive than I had thought, but I was tired and wanted to try to rest. There I was greeted with champagne, a warm wash cloth and fabulous service by the two male crew members!!! Truly the best! I am almost 70 and I wear hearing aids--- one helped me with my chair and answered my questions .... I felt VERY taken care of/- I was just one row after the business class with the wall ahead on right side of plane, nice leg room and a nice seat mate I am happy for the chance to respond as I was happy I had decided for the upgrade------------even though I had purchased an upgrade for my flight over to Barcelona only to find out on the day of check in that my flight was cancelled----- but that is when I called British Air and a lovely representative named Beth Duncan spent over 2 hours on the phone with me---- finally getting me on Iberia in order to get to my family reunion------ So....... on two occasions during this trip to my sister's house British Air was just wonderful and I thank you very much------- at the end of our flight one of the men made arrangements for me to get to go upstairs and look at the upper deck as I had never done that before------- as as retired teacher that was fun to see Thank you so much!!!"

Cons: "Entertainment system failed partway through flight No hot breakfast"

Cons: "Should have a better food before arriving for an 8 hour flight."

Cons: "Connecting flight travel distance and bus service"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "1) I was booked on the next available flight. This flight was delayed too. I was really exhausted, and tired of waiting. 2) The refreshment was only for purchase. I understand,that non of the domestic flights provide food but 1 nonalcoholic drink or water, and small pretzels or nuts are always offered free of charge, and additional refreshment is charged. Sad, this was not an option."
Cons: "Many passengers very noisy with no correction by staff. Children were allowed to run in the aisle."
Pros: "Loved that entertainment available before take off and ended after taxiing. Liked that drinks and food were free. Would pick BA again"
Cons: "Tried to order kids food on website and couldn't figure out how to do it so the kids got adult food. Perhaps make it easier to order or give kids kids food as default."
Cons: "Plane was late boarding, updates were not prompt."
Pros: "we landed"
Cons: "flight had a two hours delay flight attendants were rude and obnoxious will never fly on british airways ever again they shouldnt be allowed to drive people let alone fly them london is just fog and ugly faces british airways' customer service is the equivalent of wisdom teeth: they exist but no one seems to know why they should delete their airline altogether"
Pros: "All of my flights with BA this year were great. A flight from London to LA was exceptional....really kind staff , excellent pilot despite dodgy weather and most amazing of all REALLY good food! Usually I never eat airline food, but wow! Fantastic! Wish I could remember the name of one of the stewards who went above and beyond, despite having some rather demanding, actually outright rude passengers! Well done!"

Pros: "overall okay"

Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Dame coments"
Cons: "Same coments"
Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Pros: "it was an american airline flight. good trip"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."
Cons: "Tight conditions, lousy movies& music, video system did not work well, 1 hour wait on runway"
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "Clean and new airplane. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "People in front of us were reclining the entire time and our seats right behind them were tight. Did not like having to pay extra for seats"
Pros: "Good meals"
Cons: "Could not get seats together with my husband"
Cons: "3 hour delay on international flight from JFK made for a very long day."
Pros: "In general it was fine"
Cons: "The flight was not cheap and when I went to select my seat, it revealed that to not sit in the middle row would cost me an extra $60 each way. A bit much on the misc charges folks."
Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"
Cons: "My audio outlet was defenct. So, no films. And my connecting flight didnt have any information."
Pros: "Reasonable , competitive airfare."
Cons: "Impersonal service of attendants"
Pros: "Good movie selections. Prompt clean up service after the meals"
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants (not all) were quite rude and inpatient. My husband and I had ordered vegetarian meals and at the start of the meal that asked us our names and apparently the wrong names were on the meals so we didnt get it. But when the cart came down with the choices we told them what happened and they got upset and said we denied the vegetarian meal. Plain crazyness."
Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"
Cons: "Finally took off at 12:15 AM on a flight scheduled to depart at 7;30 PM the day before!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and we had no issues during the flight. Seating issue (below) was fixed by agent (although we only were allowed to interact with a human because the self check-in didn't work."
Cons: "During online check-in we were seated separately, but given the option to remedy this for a mere $200. I remember a time not long ago when sitting together was a given, now, like all things, it is a privilege for those with means."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats reclined but when they did the bottom of the seat moved forward creating even less leg room. For a guy that is 6' tall it made it nearly impossible to sleep on the over night flight. The head rest also did not raise over my shoulder height which added to the lack of sleep"
Pros: "There were a lot of entertainment options, the seats were comfortable, staff was attentive, and two meals were included."
Cons: "Getting around London Heathrow was a pain and took a long time."
Pros: "Very nice plane with a good entertainment system."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed almost angry. Banging trays,. bumping carts into nearly every row and even skipping some rows on drink service."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "The airline was great."
Cons: "It airfare.......I've never in my life had to deal with such an unprofessional company in my entire life! I'm honestly shocked that you use them considering your a creditable company. I was screamed and cursed at hung up on and also cancelled off my flight the morning of and then had to pay an additional $100 to get back onto the flight! When I checked online they have nothing but bad reviews. Unfortunately I will not be booking through kayak again in fear of having to deal with airfare."
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "The "very" new 777-200 was very comfortable, well-laid out. I usually skip or leave half of the in-flight food served, but this rates as one of the best meals, I've had in an airplane outside of business class. The in-flight entertainment/information service was decent, but perhaps because the plane was still in new condition."
Cons: "On this entire business trip, I booked with other companies, but ended up 5 flights operated by American Airlines. One cancellation, 4 delayed, 3 late arrivals. The last one was the most annoying. I will be avoiding AA in the future. The domestic crews are generally brusque and miserable. The international flight crews were more accommodating and pleasant, but most of them also seemed annoyed at passenger presence. Also, having to pay for a preferred seat on a half-empty airplane is simply unfair. By 24hrs before the flight, AA must have known there were plenty of empty seats."
Cons: "Missed flight at london. Had to go to abu dhabi and Hyderabad. Very bad service"
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"
Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."
Cons: "Flight was oversold, was bumped to the next flight."
Cons: "Tiny seats in Economy, BA on the way to New York was so much better! Faulty seat which wouldn't recline properly and faulty entertainment system!! Having to pay extra for seat choice and then getting a tiny with no leg space or side space, again the BA plane on the way out was much better"
Pros: "Constantly good AA service"
Cons: "The chairs have to be better for a 7h flight"
Pros: "Went business class and was truly spoiled. Did an evening flight. The seat laid down to a flat bed. Boses headsets, facial refresher packages were provided. The food was wonderful and the wine was above average. A must experience!"
Pros: "Headphones provided. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Exhausting overseas flight. Seats barely recline, impossible to get any sleep. The system was broken so no wifi, movies, maps etc. Power was intermittent so it was difficult to charge devices."
Pros: "I was served breakfast and lunch/dinner"
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an airport is near impossible"
Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."
Cons: "Don't like the habit of having the staff reserve the last 3 rows of the airplane for personal usage when there are no other spare seats on the plane. Then we were lied to by the attendants that they did this to balance the weight across the aircraft. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable to begin with and mine had a broken seat bag making things worse. All in all a miserable flight to Europe for my kids and me."
Pros: "The movie screen was not working but fortunately no one was sitting next to me so I could move over a seat."
Cons: "I would have liked a second cup of coffee as the coffee was better than most airplane coffee. No one appeared with refills, however."
Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."
