Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Pros: "I liked the open space not fully booked flight. Nice leg room and lots of choices of shows to watch"

Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "Economy is always Economy and I got what I paid for therefore I am satisfied with that fact. In addition we were on time."
Cons: "All was well with the Airline and British Airways met all the safety protocol, I expected. The booking with Kayak was made online. I had questions after the booking, I called. The representatives were very helpful,. professional and courteous. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew were great but the entrainment socket on my seat was broken so I couldn’t watch anything"
Cons: "Making sure everything works properly"
Pros: "Crew were excellent, seats were relatively comfortable and in flight entertainment was great."
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. It really needed a good clean as there was food debris on my seat belt buckle and sticky finger prints all over my screen. Additionally, the connection time at LHR was too short. While we made the flight (having to run) but our bags did not, which was an annoyance."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, comfy seats, clean plane"
Cons: "The lights broke on the plane so we all had to sleep with the lights on. That was the only negative."
Pros: "Over all good means.........., All well nothing to my dislike"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "To be honest, I liked that some of the flight attendants were friendly. Honestly, all but Nicola were nice and friendly. Nicola was the only rude one. So rude that I took note of her name for such a review like this :). I also liked that we got to our destination safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 3 hours total. The first 45 minutes we were in the airport and they said they were delayed because of an engineering issue which was fine. They then stated that they resolved it and had us board the plane.... ten minutes later the pilot states that the same engineering issue is still being worked on and it'll be about another ten minutes. Well... TWO HOURS after being trapped on the plane and told repeatedly "it'll be another 10-15 minutes" ,we finally took off. The food was subpar, most of the airline staff was polite save for one gentleman at the gate who made a sarcastic comment to me about them trying to board quickly when I couldn't find my passport (after making us wait 45 minutes... then another 2 hours... yeah board quickly for what?). And the flight attendant Nicola was incredibly rude and appeared to condescend to some passengers in various ways. That 3 hour delay ended up costing me my connecting flight and I was booked on an overcrowded flight leaving 4 hours later and that was also delayed almost another hour (surprise!). My first day of vacation, I basically lost my whole first day as I arrived 8 hours after I was meant to because of delays by B.A."
Pros: "The staff was kind"
Cons: "Too many people"
Cons: "I did not like a lot of things, overall impression was very disappointing compared to a few years ago. I will NOT recommend BA to anyone."
Pros: "We liked the Economy Plus amenities lovely service from all staff"
Cons: "Heath row. Was very disorganized"
Pros: "One aspect that was greatly appreciated was when the cabin head came over the speaker and asked everyone to please return their seat to the up right position so that everyone could enjoy their meal. When you sit in the main cabin, it's incredibly frustrating to have the person in from of you recline their seat. There is little room, and for the most part everyone is pretty selfish about that."
Cons: "The cabin crew got a little snippy. Understandable. It is a long flight."
Pros: "The only positive is that you don't have to worry about missing your flight due to the fact LHR isn't in the Schengen zone so there's no hangup at passport control during your connection."
Cons: "From check-in to flight attendants snotty attitude and a bunch of control freaks. Service and amenities inferior to other airlines."
Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff"
Cons: "Outdated ife and unpleasant buzzing noise from the headphones"
Cons: "Missed the connection"
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."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make it into this flight. Pathetic operations. Have to wait 24 hours for bag to come. Very inconvenient."
Cons: "Just the room and comfortableness of the economy class seating"
Pros: "Perfect landing"
Cons: "Not enough food in a meal"
Cons: "I told the ground crew that I would prefer an aisle seat when I checked in, and she acknowledged my need. Yet, it turned out that I was given a window seat while there are vacant aisle seats on the plane."
Pros: "This flight was operated by British airways but the price with Finn Air was much cheaper."
Cons: "The cushion of my seat was not comfortable."
Pros: "I really liked that the crew were friendly, information was clearly communicated and process smooth."
Cons: "For a long flight the seats weren't that comfy and if it's an overnight I would suggest they let you know when food is coming or lights out so you can plan. Also, just a suggestion but I would prefer to pay less and not have the entertainment stuff or just use a BA app on my phone."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to hurricane Harvey."
Cons: "I didn't know that it's so complicated to reschedule a flight or return money! That was the worst part."
Pros: "There were no complications with my flight"
Cons: "Food is not so good, and the flight entertainment and amenities are not as good as other airlines."
Pros: "I could not have been happier with my flight to London."
Cons: "The flight back could not have had worse service. I paid for an upgrade and got none of the treatment I expected from the flight there."
Pros: "I like everything ,because the way they treating me and I was feeling very comfortable . Thank you very much ."
Cons: "I coul not say anything that U did not like."
Pros: "Check in, boarding were well organized. Crew and attendants at the airport were very friendly. My luggage was not lost."
Cons: "The flight from Houston was delayed, but Captain said that he will make up, and we should arrive to London on time. Only when we landed I learned that we are still late by an hour, and I missed my connection in London by a few minutes. Whoever was assigning a seat for me in Houston, could seat me closer to the front, so I would have a better chance to catch my connection. Instead, I was placed at the very last row. (Very uncomfortable by the way)."
Pros: "The staff and food option wasn't bad for plane food. We left and arrived on time. Theu kept us informed with what was happening with the turbulence."
Cons: "There were no usb chargers. The tiny screen had white scuffs all over so you couldn't see. The chairs were super cramped."
Pros: "The crew was great at taking care of everything"
Pros: "I flew economy. I was happy that I didn't feel tightly confined in my seat. I'm 5ft. 11 in. tall and had enough legroom so that me knees didn't get pressed up against the seat in front of me. I had the vegan meal and it was good! The staff on board were friendly and professional even when a customer a few rows ahead argued with them! They were able to hear the man out and resolve the problem amicably."
Pros: "Everything was good! Something to be said when here are no issues!"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Wider isle and overhead space."
Cons: "TV screen difficult to see."
Pros: "Food and crew were nice. Smooth landing and take off."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible. Very limited choices. Water dripped on me from the AC when landing. Headphone jack was nearly stripped out."
Pros: "Seats were a lil comfortable than the ones i have flown in before."
Cons: "Switched to a different plane because of delays. Was issued a ticket without getting an alert that i required a visa for italy, was detained and had to spend a night in an italian airport cell and deported the following day (not a honeymoon experience i was looking forward to)."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very good"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was a little warm."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because I got an email from kayak that the flight was an hour delayed. And it was not delayed."
Pros: "Everything was ok. Just OK. Decent meal - if small."
Cons: "Not much space in the cabin. Plane was quite tired. Breakfast, as always, terrible."
Pros: "Discreet and attentive customer service"
Cons: "Foot rest did not fully deploy. The remote for IFE was stuck I the cradle"
Pros: "Leg room was much better than in economy particularly for those of us over 6 feet tall. The food was quite good and better than what is normally served in Economy."
Cons: "Toilet facilities were in the economy cabin so there was no benefit to Premium Economy passengers - so much for a separate cabin as advertised. The seats weren't comfortable in fact normal economy seats are probably more comfortable. I was near one of the separating curtain as the cabin crew were often "bursting" through rather than pulling the curtain apart. Being on overnight flight it meant I got very little sleep let alone the children yelling and laughing loudly through the night - could the cabin crew say something! I had paid the extra for premium economy so I could do some work and get some sleep before I landed. I managed to do some work but got very little sleep."
Pros: "I loved the headrest on the seat. Easiest headrest for sleeping I have ever had. No neck rolling around. Especially important for long overnight flight. The recline on the seat was also lovely. For economy class, I slept amazingly well!"
Cons: "Food was ok, and seats were quite close together. I have status on another airline and usually fly in a premium economy seat. This was absolutely fine in a pinch, and I would do it again. But more room between seats would be nice."
Pros: "Straight forward boarding pretty good food and the flight crew was very professional"
Cons: "Still very cramped seating."
Pros: "Food was excellent for an airline, free wine doesn't hurt. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Very cramped seating, seats and blankets looked dated (read: kind of gross)."
Pros: "We were traveling with a newborn and toddler. The crew and staff were very accommodating and helpful. They seated us in a row with an extra empty seat, refilled my daughter's bottle several times, and were friendly and kind to our kids. The entertainment options were great and the food was good, too."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable but this is the case with pretty much any economy seating on any flight."
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed an hour, then 4 hours, then eventually cancelled. The last gate crew gave us no updates other than saying it was being delayed to a maintenance check. We eventually had to rebook our direct flight from ORD to CDG to then ORD to LHR and then to CDG. Because of this delay we missed most of our first day in Paris. The flight crew from LHR to CDG was very polite and friendly! I will be doing business with British Airways again in the near future. I will not be doing business with American Airlines anytime soon. Neither will my friends and family once they find out about my horrible experience with their lackluster customer service."
Cons: "Everything that involved American Airlines and my 7 hour flight delay."
Cons: "I feel cheated to get a "window" seat that lacked a window!"
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "Seat room was poor, the food was poor, there was no coffee or tea available on a 9 hour flight! The flight attendants were not overly friendly as they have been in the past. Disappointed in BA on this flight."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work on any of the seats."
