Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Sarah the Cabin Manager was amazing."
Cons: "The business seats are horrible"
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "The food was great—snacks, meals, drinks—all complimentary!"
Cons: "First of all my booking didnt have a checked bag included !! Since when british air do not include checled bags in their tickets . Second its way too expensive to add the baglike 100$ for each flight !! 400$ for me and my wife !! Third when i checked in and wanted to chose my seat 50$ each !!!"
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: "We were downgraded from our Business class tickets to Economy Plus because the flight was overbooked. The journey and services were poor. This is for a business class passengers who paid full fair."
Cons: "All problems mentioned above needs to be fixed. We are not flying BA again. We are done with you"
Cons: "Every think was ok"
Pros: "The crew was very good, really polite and nice and helpful. Pilots or the plane's auto landing system did a good touch down in a hard windy condition at Ohare."
Cons: "Cramped seating as usual in economy, but BA's is better than others in most cases. A few extra inches of leg and knee room would make all the difference in the world. Our worst experience is the over zealous highly inefficient very slow tedious carry on bag security system at Heathrow terminal 5."
Pros: "The in flight services met my expectations."
Cons: "We were informed at the Nairobi check in that our tickets had been suspended because of possible risk of fraud. Attempts to resolve this promptly were not successful. For a first time traveler to the UK, this created unnecessary anxiety and gave us the feeling that the agency appointed to check us in are not supportive. We were eventually sorted but this is not nice at all given the fact that payments went through and tickets were issued and no one informed us of any issues until we got to the airport. Some feedback would be appreciated."
Pros: "Fantastic crew and food reasonable for plane food. Air blowers didn't work. But all in all I had a comfortable flight. Don't like layout of Heathrow - everyone super nice but bus rides between terminals cost me 30-40 minutes having to go through security again. I understand the need but would be nice if flights came and left from same terminals where possible."
Cons: "The entertainment screen stopped working mid way through the 9+ hour flight. Plane was older. The head rests were weird - they weren't flexible so hard to hold in place."
Cons: "this plane was 1.5 hours late - that was really the only problem."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Was an older plan but ok. No plugs at seats."
Cons: "Are you kidding me? Plane was delayed and we miss the next plane. We were in airport 14hr. Still in London."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times and the plane was really old, thought they would have something better but the staff did what they could to accommodate passengers."
Pros: "I only gave the low rating on food and entertainment because there was no free food or entertainment on the flight. Overall, however, the flight was fine."
Cons: "No free beverage. At least give the passengers some water."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. Seats with more room are priced 100€ more, as if we should be paying for being a bit taller. Again, too cold. One or two degrees up would have been comfortable. The entertainment system is a bit clumsy and has odd choices. SAS planes are better in that department for example."
Pros: "Cabin relatively new. Leg room in economy adequate. Cabin crew pleasant"
Cons: "Zero checked baggage allowance!! CDN$70 for first checked bag if booked before hand, $113 per checked bag if paid at airport!! All food and drink on this 4 hour flight from London to Santorini must be paid for!! No peanuts. No cup of soda/pop. Maybe a small plastic cup of water. Bring your own iPod or tablet. No seatback entertainment! On Airbus with very limited overhead hand baggage capacity. Roundtrip cost of this 4 hour flight CDN$800 per person booked 3 months in advance, not much less than transatlantic flight of almost twice the time from Toronto to London on Air Canada Boeing 787 with loads of overhead luggage capacity, free first checked bag, 8 inch screen seat back entertainment system, charging ports, one major meal with wine / beer, unlimited pop, plus snack. A real shocker to get Ryanair amenities on this British Airways flight which was no bargain."
Cons: "Decent seat comfort. 2hr fly. Great Alp scenery."
Pros: "I like the flight left on time"
Cons: "There were no self check in kiosk, only 3 people working to serve 50 took over and hour"
Cons: "I paid for TWO EXTRA suitcases for my flight. I carefully packed and weighted them in advance. The "lady" on the counter made me remove one jacket and one pair of boots from each suitcase because it was GRAMS over the limit. Grams those that my hand scale did not accuse at all. The following customer right after me had KILOS OVER the limit (almost SEVEN) and were not flying business or first class, regular economic class just like me. And they did not had to remove a thing from their extra heavy suitcases. What is the company criteria? Anyway, I bought me another return flight on OTHER airline and simply lost my return flight on BA. I am never flying this horrible company again."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit sloppy"
Pros: "The airline accommodated an earlier flight since I got to the airport early. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seems to be mostly different in that there's nobody seating in the middle, and maybe a better "meal". Fortunately, it's a very short flight. It was delayed 45 minutes though, after we boarded, supposedly for congestion at the destination. Ended up doubling the time spent in the plane..."
Pros: "It was all good."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"
Cons: "paid for reserved upgraded seats - didn’t get them, no help at airport, have to email for refund. Not even water or coffee on plane. BA deserves to go out of business"
Pros: "Food and staff service was amazing"
Pros: "The entertainment, food and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats on the 747-400 were less comfortable than the Airbus 300 going to London. The airbus also provided several more inches of legroom."
Pros: "the landing, because I was able to get off the plane."
Cons: "The staff isn't that friendly. Particularly at the airport, and the planes are just okay. nothing was free, not even a soda!!! they charged the two ladies next to me for tea!!!! water, a cup and a teabag, how much could this possibly cost?? the plane was nasty and dirty. when the seatback tray was lowered, the seat back was splashed and dirty. yuck!!!"
Pros: "This flight did not get me to my Austin flight"
Cons: "I am 6'3" and I cannot find sufficient leg room. The answer is paying additional for seats with extra leg room, is no answer at all. The answer is quit jamming more seats in to a ever shrinking cabin."
Pros: "Nothing. British Airways refused to help us"
Cons: "Took over two hours on the phone to try and get rebooked. Missed the last flight out of the night due to incompetence. British Airways desk check in staff was so rude, wouldn't even talk to us. Thank goodness for the helpful Air Canada grind crew in Toronto."
Pros: "comfy seat Nice head side support Nice service Professional crew and pilots - especially the very informative and genial pilot on flight 203"
Cons: "Website better now, but still clunky and cranky to use. Hard to find flight status info OUTRAGEOUS To charge for seat selection on a $1000+ ticket!!! App useless-- did not work for flight status checking BA VERY poor on updating us on flight delays: Kayak informed us of delays by email, not a peep from BA. Hard to set up flight notifications. Boarding process completely baroque: With 6 different priority statuses, should we be in this line or that if we have x status, but are flying this class. Comically absurd."
Pros: "Smooth and nice flight. Crew was friendly and attentative."
Cons: "I found it surprisingly coincidental that both my wife's and my checked bags did not make the flight to Santorini. Of course, given how the process in dealing with Kayak and this booking, it did not surprise me. Any calls or customer service related questions were handled as though we were 2nd class citizens. I've never been treated like this traveling, but always the attitude came from "oh, you booked this through a discount site" and then I was handled accordingly. I booked it through Kayak for ease as I planned a 7-city, 21 day trip around the Adriatic. Now we'll do our honeymoon without a wardrobe change, filing claims for the contents of our bags, as no one can tell us what happened, or where the bags are, and we're about to depart for our next city. Never, NEVER book a trip from a 3rd party. The seats next to the toilets that don't recline, attitude from airlines, now my first lost bag in 10 years (I fly 3 times a month, too)."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Pros: "My gluten free meal was delivered and acceptable, the seats were comfortable and the crew was exceptionally helpful and friendly."
Cons: "After first class boarded, the remainder of the passengers lined up all at once. As it was a large plane, there were two entrances and it was hard for them to keep up and direct us to the proper door. It was a minot issue."
Cons: "Was not given an aisle seat"
Pros: "The staff onboard the flight was friendly."
Cons: "There was a last minute gate change that was not announced until boarding was closing, so I had to race across to the other side of the airport to catch the plane. There was no food/drinks provided on the flight."
Cons: "During the checkin from Rome to SFO for some reason I did not received assigned seats to the flight # 285 from Heathrow to SFO. When I came to customer service - customer support said that they sold more tickets than airplane has. I was VERY disappointed. A a result they put me to the next flight 287 that was scheduled 3 hours later. They gave me money compensation. I would recommend British Airways not to work like that. From my side I will never use this airline company any more. Thanks."
Pros: "Flight and connections in perfect time."
Pros: "It arrived in Greece on time, good landing."
Cons: "Arrived in Greece for daughter's wedding. They lost all 14 family members luggage for 4 days!! Received our luggage 6PM the night before wedding, which caused terrible distress for the Bride especially and all 14 family members. Imagine being in Greece for 4 days with nothing but the clothes you traveled in. Horrible!! Will never buy a BA ticket again."
Pros: "Check in staff was friendly, and flight attendants nice. Also liked not having to pay for the 2 servings of wine I had."
Cons: "Food was very average and was served really late, after midnight local time. Special order meals were delivered to people and then there was a long gap before everyone's else's was served. btrzkfast very ordinary, but tea was decent"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant/friendly, but I'm not sure if one of the male flight attendants was extra friendly because the girl next to me was cute, I guess I got lucky and benefitted from that and got excellent service"
Cons: "There were no USB ports to charge my phone... the movie selection was average, and the entertainment system was a little old, the touch screen didn't work. Being from America, the drink can 150ml is TINY and I was always thirsty."
Cons: "I was a sardine in a tiny tin for 10 hours."
Cons: "After boarding and one hour on plane in 90 degrees heat. Passengers had to leave plane with big anxiety and unsure of what was happening"
Cons: "British airways lost our luggage in between London and Thera. Tryimg to track down any answers from British airways was near impossible. Have not heard anything form the airlines in the way of an explanation or apology."
Pros: "Only flight was OK"
Cons: "Very rude and mean lady who was in charge for boarding before fly"
Cons: "Our British Airways flights were cancelled going & returning on the trip. This resulted in rebooking in both directions, at different points in the trip. The cancellation on the return trip was extremely inconvenient since we didn't have a phone to contact BA. After wondering the airport on the day of our departure, for a BA representative that could help, we were directed to a ticket sales office. Then after waiting for another one (1) hour in a line, the BA representative rebooked our return flights. This was not a good way to start or end a trip!"
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: "Food was not good"
