Luego al preguntar si estaba asegurado dijo que sí pero no sabía por cuanto. Los compartimentos encima de mi asiento no estaban llenos. El avión aterrizó tarde. Las azafatas de vuelo profesionales."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice."

Pros: "I loved the choice of movies"
Cons: "Lack of space"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flying by pilots was great. The seats were ok."

Cons: "No one could explain why the plane was delayed - we were told to just 'look at the monitor'. The BA staff seemed to have no idea what was happening till the boarding started & then our seats were changed without telling us though the flight crew managed to seat us together."
Pros: "Punctual, clean, comfortable, space....good entraitenment, food ok and lucky enough that seat on my side was empty"

Cons: "Did not get seat I reserved. Stuck in middle seat. Very late."
Pros: "The cabin crew was nice. The main dish was good. The entertainment choices were decent and the system worked fine. I don't sleep in planes so it's important to me. I got a forward facing seat so at least I didn't have to deal with the alternative."
Cons: "Not being able to make seat assignment earlier (i.e. 24h) was lame for a business flight. The second meal was mediocre, as was coffee. The screen of my entertainment system was scratched and cracked, but it didn't disturb me too much."
Pros: "I liked your entertainment , movies, series lots to choose from."
Cons: "Your crew was horrible, I had assistance but they seemed bothered in helping me to help me get to my seat... I pity those who might assistance with that crew on future flights... Hopefully they will get the nicer crew from NY to London they were amazing."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Mechanical problem delayed flight by an hour. Pilot and staff were helpful with updates. Kayak continue to have best prices that I can find."
Cons: "In economy, meal out was a dried out pasta (or chicken) and arrival meal was a choice of candy bar or cookies! Eat before boarding or bring your own. The plane is well maintained and clean but just very old. Seems the in-flight entertainment is no longer updated monthly. If you fly a lot of long haul, this can be disappointing."

Pros: "Efficiente flight"
Cons: "No 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."
Cons: "3 hours standing in British airways and Iberian airways ticket and checking counters to get alternative flights. They could not do the "entire change" and required that we wIt in line after line. Will be a full 24 hours until the entire trip is complete. Would have been nice to at least sit in the empty first class seats on the transatlantic flight with my party as a bit of customer service. Wondering how many hours other had to wait for alternative flights because they did not use the first class seats as an alternative."
Cons: "luggage didnt arrive"
Pros: "The flight was short, and boarding and arrival were fairly quick."
Cons: "The crew did not even offer complimentary water. I understand if they want to charge for food and drinks, but does BA need to nickel and dime for a cup of tap water? The crew also were quite hasty with their passes through the cabin. I didn't even realize they were handing out arrival cards until they had already passed."
Cons: "Jfk massive queue at checkin/drop off"
Cons: "no complimentary water and coffee and more."
Pros: "-Crew was very attentive to the passenger who needed medical attention. -Captain spoke clearly and slowly. All crew members were very professional. -Cleaner and bigger WC rooms than most planes I've been on which is always a plus."
Cons: "-Food was mostly bland (e.g. vegetarian lasagna), overly seasoned (e.g. caramel/chocolate pudding dessert) or just not quite good (e.g. cole slaw). Lots of room for improvement here. Thank goodness I'd packed some snacks while we were still in Barcelona. -The earbuds wasn't very good in comparison to other in-flight earbuds I've used from other airlines. Sometimes staticky, noise cancellation was low, and wasn't as comfortable to wear."
Pros: "exelant crew ans service"
Cons: "overprice for extra bag"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, good food, individual entertainment consoles, and plane was not very crowded."

Pros: "I liked all of the entertainment options and the food was quite good for an airplane. I also liked that I had a free seat next to me for more room."
Cons: "There's never enough legroom and I always wish there was a way to remove the headrest since it sometimes really bothers my neck since there are only so many ways it can bend. For taller people, it sometimes makes your head bend forward when you need to rest it back further."
Pros: "The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence."
Cons: "I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! And only had very old movies to watch"
Cons: "Ancient plane. Worn and uncomfortable business class seats. iPad for entertainment was a joke - you balance it on the skeletal remains of what had been the video monitor. Cabin crew literally disappeared after "meal" service. I had to "disturb" them from under blankets playing Candy Crush to get a drink during this 7 1/2 hour flight. I usually fly Virgin, but for some reason this was cheaper this time - I will never fly BA/Open Skies again."
Pros: "Flight on time. Service good."
Cons: "The luggage is missing"
Pros: "The staff on all flights were pleasant and very accommodating."

Cons: "The flight was delayed, the first most important part is to depart on time keeping in mind the customers schedule as well that are travelling with the airline.

Cons: "Late to board. Slow to run through safety. Late late late"
Pros: "No one died."

I had to run from a gate in the 60s to 84D and the people at 84D were whining about my getting to them so late. United Airlines needs to get its stuff together!"
Pros: "Everything ran on time and the staff was very friendly."

Pros: "my flight was on time, and quick which is always helpful. I was able to sit at the seat I picked as well."

I'm pretty small so it doesn't affect me as much but I could tell some of the other travelers were uncomfortable. United has got to step up their snack game too. I got like a zesty ranch snack and I was happy I brought my own snacks."
Cons: "Constant updates, saying more delays"
Cons: "My luggage got soaked in overhead compartment. Signed rare book was ruined by another passengers' luggage that leaked liquid and soaked my bag and contents inside."

Pros: "Staff seemed lively and created good atmosphere; thank you."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional in spit of all the grumbly passengers."

Cons: "Yet another delay.."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was schedule to depart at 9:17am and didn't depart until 4pm. Delay after delay.
