"The best thing was that the flight was not full. My 10y.o. was able to sleep over 3 seats. The timing was great too, the plane was leaving Chicago at 8:50 pm. That was a perfect schedule to settle down and go to sleep."

Pros: "Crew had filled overhead lockers with their bags leaving no room for ours"

Cons: "The cabin lights were left on too long for a red eye. Cramped quarters - but that is true of every airline now. We did receive a blanket and pilllow, which was nice. Did not have dinner so can’t comment. Croissant with cream cheese prior to landing was OK Nice smooth flight.Nice pleasant crew"

Cons: "Waited for over an hour for trams to retrieve us from the aircraft."

Cons: "Don’t approach"

Pros: "Service was good on the plane"
Cons: "Thought I had purchased an optima coach, but was forced to pay $60 baggage fee. At checkin, asked for aisle seat, but agent had already assigned a middle seat. Then asked to change to an aisle seat, but she demanded $30 to change. Aftwr boarding was complete, there were at least 6 aisle seats empt"

Pros: "Friendly crew,"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Punctuality!"

Cons: "Delay , rebooked on fight. Had to wait 8 hours. I needed a wheelchair .. they put Erin a remote location with a rude assistant in charge of transfers for wheel chairs . She had none. Made me walk 15 minutes to find a place to take my meds. She couldn’t care less."

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The boarding process was very organized."
Cons: "The seat and entertainment were terrible. The TV worked only in the last hour and the seat was not comfortable. No leg room, and the passenger in front of me wasn't considerate -- I couldn't move in my chain when his chair was down)."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Better more comfortable seats"

Pros: "I loved the in flight service and entertainment. Also, the flight had seats that actually reclined and I was able to sleep."
Cons: "I did not like switching airlines between my flights. It caused a lot of confusion and made check in extremely difficult. In addition, my bag was lost between changing companies between flights. Not happy at all."

Pros: "Typical solid British Airways service."
Cons: "Delayd by 4 hours."

Cons: "Seat in row ahead was broken, causing it to recline too far and not correctly return upright"

Pros: "When we finally took off."
Cons: "Flight was delayed >3.5 hours because of an "electrical problem affecting in-flight entertainment system and 1st and Business Class seats. After powering down the aircraft c. 3 times at 11:15pm CT the electrical system miraculously worked as normal."

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Good food"

Pros: "At least we were able to wait in the lounge."
Cons: "One of the jet bridges malfunctioned. Had to board >500 passengers via remaining bridge. An hour late departing."

Pros: "Priority boarding and bulkhead seating for family travelling with infant."
Cons: "My 'infant on lap' (23 months old) was too big for the airline-provided seat (weight limit 12.5kg, and he weighed 13kg)."

Pros: "Pilot was nice"
Cons: "The chaos boarding, unorganized crew, missing our transfer flight and not given options to book differently"

Cons: "The airline sent me on a wild goose chase through the airport only to end up back at the same counter. They then told me it was too late to check in. Do not book tickets with cheapoair-British Airlines said this releasesthem from all responsibilities and cheapoair will do nothing but send you to different people trying to sell you another flight. It was the worst experience every!"

Pros: "Food was decent and it was nice to have all drinks included (but after the first one you had to go to the galley to get a drink)."
Cons: "Definitely an older plane with very narrow seats and very little legroom compared to other long haul flights that I have been on. They only delivered drinks once and then if you wanted any more you had to climb over people and go to the galley to obtaining yourself. Plane was also very warm so it was hard to get comfortable and there was not much airflow to cool you off."

Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service was superb! Very easy to overlook how late the flight was. I appreciated the blanket and other items provided!"
Cons: "After a week, I still do not have my luggage. This is due to the flight being delayed 2 hours and I do not know why it was delayed. Because it was delayed, I missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "Good entertainment. More comfortable. The ride was smooth."
Cons: "Service. Having to ask for my food being skipped and also having food choices."

Cons: "Flight crew was just ok; nothing they did made me want to fly with British Airways again. Salad was good but the chicken nondescript."

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "no dairy free food options"

Pros: "Everything was great! Good food and service. On time flight. No complaints!"

Cons: "no air vents over seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fight was delayed 30 minutes so we missed our connecting flight to Madrid. We are stuck in London for the night, the food is not edible at the hotel they gave us and now we are stuck rearranging all of our future travel plans because we can't get to Madrid until tomorrow. This is our worst travel experience ever. We will never fly British Airways again."

Pros: "So glad you do not charge for a blanket like so many airline bed (Norwegian Air for example). Staff on BA tend to be professional and low key eg quiet on long haul evening flights. It allows passengers to sleep."
Cons: "I appreciate economy is the low end but now realise I should eat before boarding or bring my own food. Apart from the salad, it was inedible."

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Food and service could be better."

Pros: "The women at BA in Chicago O'Hare airport were awesome Christine, Carole, Diane & ankther one but I forgot the last lady's name. Very polite attentive and professional. We had a difficult situation & they helped us get through our problem with the less stress as possible!"
Cons: "Airplane food was a bit below average. Also there was not a good selection in music. I did not recognize 95% of the option of music to listen to."

Pros: "Nice aircraft and nice flight overall!"
Cons: "I had reserved the 2 back seats of the aircraft--a row of only those 2 seats--so I could sleep against the window and my husband would still have the legroom he needs. Unfortunately those seats on the actual aircraft ended up being in a 3 seat row and getting a window seat and middle seat. Having booked the flight 8+ months prior, we were disappointed that we had less comfortable seats than originally reserved."

Pros: "The check-in process at the airport in Chicago was efficient and the person who helped us was friendly"
Cons: "-I was unable to check-in online and I think it's because my name got messed up in the reservation system even though I entered it correctly -Compared to other airlines, BA does not stop by frequently to offer beverages. Food and beverage service provided by BA faded in comparison to what was provided by American Airlines on the way back. - Our flight was delayed due to weather, but we also sat in the plane for a long period of time with no explanation. -We appreciated that BA automatically re-booked us on another flight (although it was not the next flight), and provided 2 meal tickets for 10 euro each. There was no other compensation for the incurred delay (about 2.5 hours)"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The width of the seats in economy are so narrow they don't fit my back. I am not a fat person. 6 feet 170 lbs and fit. No legroom and the tray table is not deep enough to support the food tray. Breakfast after an 8 hour flight consisted of a Kellogg's snack bar in a wrapper. I am used to Southwest Airlines which allows more than one peanut bag so I took two breakfast bars and the stewardess scolded me and said only one and made me return my extra. Not everyone in my roll even took a bar. They treat you like dirt in coach."

Pros: "Flight attendants really are nice folks"
Cons: "1. Bought ticket via kayak chicago to prague, so I got outgoing trip on British airways but they codeshare it out to Aer Lingus. Unfortunately, these dumbos haven't figured out that no matter what the gyrations they do, I still want to be able to pick my seat beforehand. Nada. Not possible online. And forget calling aer lingus 800 number. called twice and was on hold for 30 min each time, they dont bother answering. 2. At airport, I was willing to pay extra for a good seat because of the issues above, so they said they would help me out. Ha - the manager who purportedly was helping me out gave me a seat up front next to a shrieking infant and behind a bassinet (he knew exactly what he was doing but didnt care). They really lie and think we're idiots. 3. Same thing for flight from dublin to prague. This time last row next to toliets Dont fly aer lingus if you dont book directly with them, same for british airways I looked at BA's website - they do let you book a seat in advance but you must pay something for every single seat. Crazy. There are no free seats"

Pros: "Got me there"
Cons: "Basic"

Pros: "New plane, very comfortable seating. The headphones in biz class were awesome, forgot I was on the plane. Overall best American Airlines flight and I do fly them a lot. Also liked the dual screens option."
Cons: "The seat control in the touch pad - not conveniently placed"

Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "I had been waiting a few hours for my next connecting flight ant at about 8:00 pm (45 minutes before departure), they announce that our flight might be delayed do to mechanical problems on our plane. It took them 4 hours to fix it. Which was not too bad. What was bad is that they lied to us. Because I missed my connecting flight, they said that they would be waiting for us with our new flights and not to worry. When we arrived in London, we were scrambling to find out where to go. there was several families in front of me that missed their flights and they were having problems trying to re-book their flights. It took about 3/4 hours for me (one person) to re-book my London to Glasgow because I was stuck behind families. I was trying to explain one of BA employees that I (1 person) needed a flight to Glasgow. It was getting late and I was worried that I might miss the last flight of the day and would be stuck in London until the next day. She didn't like that I told her that and didn't want to help me. so it took me about 4 hours in line to get my flight and had to rush to get it. I had also purchased a window sit that I was not able to get. The guy that help me re-book my flight told me that I would have to call for that. Which I did now but the first phone # I called, the guy said that I had to call this other #. I called the # he gave me and a recording comes out that they are too backed up with calls and cannot help me to go to the website. At the website, they are asking for the flight # of the re-booked flight (I only have my original flight #'s on my email). I don't know what happened to the ticket they gave me to board the re-booked flight so I don't have it. I don't know where else to call about my refund and also think I deserve some kind of compensation for missing a day at both airports with horrible treatment and service. CAN YOU HELP ME ON HOW TO TALK TO A REPRESENTATIVE ABOUT MY REFUND AND SOME SORT OF COMPENSATION?"

Pros: "nothing-"
Cons: "I flew about 1 million miles and truly felt like a sardine- absolutely NO leg room and very archaic entertainment system. NEVER AGAIN !"

Cons: "Everything was great about this flight, except that I had a row of seats that would not allow the arm rest to go down. So even though I had 2 empty seats to my left I could not utilize them, which would have made the flight so much better. When asked I was told that the "curve" of the plane would not allow it. This should have been mentioned when I booked and chose those seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst flight ever! Crew very unprofessional. The plane was filthy and most seats did not recline. It was a night flight but they were unable to turn the lights off. We took off almost an hour later because they did not have ice nor snacks."

Pros: "Nice large plane that wasn't near capacity."
Cons: "Long delay with minimal compensation. Gave us a rebooked connection that we had near zero chance of making."

Cons: "It was extremely hot on the plane. for the first 30 minutes there was no ac available and there was little to no help from the staff. I asked for water to cool myself down and ov waited about ten minutes to get it after hitting my help button multiple times. The flight attendants may have been overwhelmed with the requests as there were many just like me who struggled so they came off very rude. The plane was also not updated at all - not personal entertainment and once again, no ac/air for people to control."

Pros: "Saved 5 hours by being changed to a non-stop for the same fee."
Cons: "Working with Iberia to get accessible seating took ten irritating phone calls."

Cons: "The flight was awful! Boarding was unorganized. Once on the plane, space was TIGHT! I have flown with Iberia before and had leg room and TVs behind the chairs. This was not like this. Seats were uncomfortable for an 8 hour flight, smelly, and flimsy. I have never been more uncomfortable. The crew were nice but one was very rude to a passenger snapping at him and all ignored a very drunk man on my flight as much as possible. This man was very disruptive for most of the flight singing, shaking seats, touching other passengers, and walking about the flight. I did not feel safe at all! The staff would tell him to sit down, walk away, and he would be instantly back up. Staff would see this and ignore. I had no idea what to do. I felt unsupported and unsafe. The flight had constant turbalence to go along with it. To the point that they canceled dinner. I wanted to kiss the ground when I got off the flight. This was absolutely miserable. I could not be more disappointed."

Pros: "A lot of people in close proximity. Very good service and food. It worked well."
Cons: "The flight was great but found out night before when I checked to confirm flights that ours were cancelled without notification. We booked through Kayak so not sure what happened. PANIC for sure but a great service provider spent an hour on the phone with me to make sure we made it."

Cons: "seats in World Traveller are the worst. I've never felt so painful sitting in an airplane seat. The curve of the seat makes it so that one must crane their neck the entire trip. The headrest sticks out a lot, further contributing to this problem. Anyone with half decent posture is going to have a bad time in these seats. I saw the club world seats while exiting the plane and wanted to cry,"

Pros: "I really liked how it was just one flight and no lay overs, the crew was very nice, and the food was good."
Cons: "It was very late and delayed."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice. The food was also nice. I had a gluten free meal and it was enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was old there were no tvs on the seats so the "in flight entertainment" was awful. When you plugged headphones in there was an awful noise that prevented you from hearing anything from the movie/show. Considering this was a transatlantic flight, the plane should have been better. We were also delayed due to maintenance that needed to be done on the flight. Luckily London was my last stop so I was not late for anymore flights but a lot of people on the plane were. I was very disappointed and will be disappointed again if my return flight has the same issues."
