Cons: "We did not get to select the seats. I did get an extremely low priced fare so I was prepared. The seats were in the very back of the plane from Dublin to Rome even though there were many seats open throughout the plane. I couldn’t figure out how to purchase upgrades using the app."

Cons: "Online check in does not work, ever. Late boarding all 4 flights inconvenient access to boarding pass.

Cons: "..."

Pros: "nil unfortunately"
Cons: "waiting in three different lines for over two hours with one person serving! Paying for my baggage (under20kgs) with my flight then being forced into paying again at the airport because they said they did not have my details on their system. being forced to go to another line and que up to pay a second time for my baggage to be taken onto the airport. Going back to another line to put my baggage in and show the receipt for the baggage that had been paid for twice. Going to the next (another) line with one person serving - several Dublin passengers in the que and a line that as about 100mts long- yes about 100 metres long with one person serving without any Lingus staff coming to see if all was ok . No help no announcements nothing. sitting in a plane for an hour and a half with three children under the age of four crying, screaming and yelling all the way without a thing being said by any of the crew. A little is ok, but three families with young children with no support from the crew was not pleasant"

Cons: "Maybe more movies for entertainment?"

Cons: "It was freezing cold in the airplane."

My ticket reads BA but yet it America and Aer Lingus. Kayak should have made clear from the beginning. I was detained in Ireland. Almost missed my flight"

Cons: ""Breakfast" sandwich of egg. Also boarding was not by rows from the rear so everyone was blocking everyone else."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, the flight arrived 10 minutes early."

Pros: "Ride was smooth from Dublin to New York"

Pros: "The entertainment this time was working. Always a bonus. Loos were kept clean."
Cons: "The younger staff are moody and sullen. If you don't like long hall flights change your job. BA your seats are SO old it's like sitting on a park bench for hours. I know we are in the lowest paid seats but it really isn't acceptable."

Cons: "air condition from above and from everywhere, it was too cold for me."

Cons: "Super tight seating on the plane. Terrible customer service at checkin in Lanzarote. there was a weather issue the day prior and hundreds of travelers were stranded. The baggage belt was backed up and therefore the staff couldn’t check in more travelers. This, we learned, not from the staff, but from walking around and noting the stacks of luggage etc Far better would have been for them to inform the 200 or so people that were waiting in line for 1 hour. You must pay for anything on the flight. A small bag of peanuts or such would be nice."

Cons: "The tickets arrived at 9.50 am for 10.55 take off. I tried to cHe Kin in line but it didn’t let me. I went to the counter and they told me check in had closed and I would have to buy another ticket. It was my fault for buying a ticket. Goodbye £200. Thanks BA"

Pros: "The flight left early and arrived early."
Cons: "The lack of check-in information when we arrived at Malta airport. The check-in only opens two hours before the flight but there were no signs or information advising of this."

Pros: "Very smooth landing"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence"

Pros: "Friendly flight staff, spacious cabin, decent food, clean and well-maintained. Additionally, we were delayed by 30 minutes and still managed to arrive before our original arrival time at Gatwick. I haven’t flown BA in years but this trip has made me a new regular customer."

Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"

Cons: "It took 1 hour to get a glass of water"

Pros: "Nothing, I never had the opportunity to board"
Cons: "We had a quick trip planned to the go to London traveling from Amsterdam with British Airways. We were able to check in without a problem, but getting through airport security took a substantial amount of time, which caused sever delays getting to the gate. Once at the gate, we were told that we could no longer board the plane as the gate had already closed. Even more shocking, the service people told use that our entire itinerary (AKA our return flight) was cancelled as a result of this. You can imagine our frustration as we had tickets in hand looking at the door to the plane that we would have been allowed to walk through had security taken 5 minutes less. In the states, if airport security is holding you from missing your flight, this is communicated with the airline and proper arrangements are made. Unfortunately, this was not the case, forcing us to buy a new (last minute) ticket and losing a lot of money."

Pros: "The staff and crew! The level of security at the airport was much higher than all other countries I've visited including the USA."
Cons: "The entertainment displays need updating."

Pros: "Was happy that there was an empty seat in my row which allowed for a little more space and comfort. Food was filling and pretty tasty with free wine & spirits. Staff was friendly."

Pros: "The plane was old and dirty even after it had been cleaned. There was grime in the lavatory and on the seat back tables."
Cons: "The crew was fine and the food was edible, but it wasn't great."

Cons: "First class, great experience thank you kayak . I will use the website again next time"

Pros: "I was upgraded to World Traveler Class. There was a lot more legroom. Also there was great movie select."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding was confusing. Not even a free glass of water. Really quite mediocre"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "1) Tiny seats 2) Rude service in the airplane and rude customer service in the airport boot at British Airways 3) Lost my flight to JFK as the transfer took forever 4) Accommodation after the airline screwed up was little to nothing."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Long wait in boarding - flight was delayed"

Pros: "I liked the comfort of the seats and the service I received onboard."
Cons: "I found out when I got to the airport that my flight was delayed for 3 hours. I never received an email regarding this information. That was extremely disappointing. This whole travel experience has really left a bad taste in my mouth about flying with this airline. Even my flight on the way back was a nightmare. The flight was closed early and I missed my flight and had to get on a later flight out of Heathrow. My connection was delayed and they changed the gate at the last minute so I had to run through the airport to make my flight to Dc. This has by far been the worst travel situation and it really put a damper on my trip."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Apathetic crew and service desk - missed flight with no automatic rebooking - I had to wait for two hours on arrival, then take a bus to a new airport and wait another 6 hours to get on a new flight. No upgrade, no compensation"

Pros: "Everyone was very pleasant to deal with. And I even got upgraded"

Cons: "Iberia airlines, operating for BA, refused to honor the tickets we had bought via Airfare .com. Would not let me fly!!!!!!! After several hours they found a way to put us on a later flight--got in late, had to stay overnight in Orlando. Don't understand!!!! Wife and I are in 70's--spent 22 hours trying to get home!!!"

Pros: "I realize that you always have to pay for food on short haul flights these days but, considering that, I was pleased with the M&S food offerings. There was enough variety to please our young children, vegetarian and omnivores and the prices were reasonable for airline prices. It came in very handy as it was definitely lunch time."
Cons: "I was surprised to have to pay to reserve a seat on a BA flight beforehand. That's getting to close to Ryanair. Also, the boarding gate at Venice Marco Polo was awful, super overcrowded and confusing. We actually had two different flight lines getting merged. Expect better from BA facilities."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Food Options were limited, Due to extra security in Gatwick with a 1 hr Layover, we were nearly left behind. To finish it off British Airways lost our luggage. I am very disappointed with British Airlines. This is the absolute worst experience flying I have ever had. I do not recommend anyone flying British Airways."

Pros: "On time and accommodating"
Cons: "All ok"

Pros: "Not much. Very small plane. Only one bathroom on the back in the galley! Impossible to get in most of the flight because of service carts."
Cons: "Food service extremely slow. M&s choices looked good but the crew had their hands full trying to deliver. Too bad"

Cons: "Many passengers very noisy with no correction by staff. Children were allowed to run in the aisle."
