Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "It would help to train them on how pour wine without spilling."
Pros: "Are you kidding? Its BA. Nothing but the time and route were good."
Cons: "Less leg room than on other airlines, Crew was noisy, credit card reader was broken so all payments processed manually, maybe they were behind schedule because of this and were rushing through the cabin as a big group"
Cons: "Schedule issues, rerouted thru LA, very very painful travel, multiple security checks for an issue from the airline schedule. Airline doesn’t give reroute options. Two bags opened and missing personal items. Very frustrating travel. Kids meal choices missing on rerouted flights. I can go on..."
Pros: "The crew at HYD airport is good people."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was OK. I had Hindu meal and it was hot and tasty but salty."

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was terribly cold. I was cold even after using 2 blankets. Lunch was served very late just before landing and it was a 10 hour flight."

Cons: "I have to say, the coffee on offer is disgusting. I would certainly look in to changing that."
Pros: "Food and flights being on time and ran per schedule"
Cons: "London airport NOT OFFERING WHEEL CHAIR even there was a wheel chair assistance required. My mother has to walk despite choosing the wheel chair assistance. Now she is in pain."
Pros: "More legroom, better service, like hot towel before meals and snacking between meals, we were given breakfast at 8 in the morning at Hyderabad India, then after Suzan ahalf hour given a meal, there was no snacks given. When asked the crew said that we need to ask in the lobby"

Cons: "they have increased the layover time"
Cons: "Our baggage was lost and after 2 day’s of being told that the delivering agent had our baggage and it would be delivered any minute, on the third day we were told our bags had been st the Madrid airport the whole time! Between British Airways and Iberia, terrible handoff, communication and customer service."
Cons: "There was no wheel chair provided for the passenger even though requested for one in hyderabad"
Pros: "Wheel chair was provided. Guidance to check in to the flight."
Cons: "I paid extra charge for Seat 29C. It was not provided though requested several times. After a hot argument this was provided. Crew were not co-operative. Flight was delayed by three hours. Connecting flights missed. I reached my final destination by a delay of 24 hrs. Luggage came after 3 days. No wheel chair provided at LHR. I have been suffering from Back pain since several years, underwent surgery. I had to walk a larger distance at LHR to hotel and back to to catch flight. Very horrible journey I had ever experienced."

Pros: "Especially the flight attendants took very good care of my infant. I'm very much impressed with their service."
Cons: "Seats spacing, food"
Pros: "it wasn't british airways once i got there - it was aer lingus. this was confusing."
Cons: "Very irresponsible staff and customer service. The flight got delayed due to technical reasons and the havoc after that is beyond explanation. Wish there was zero stars to rate"
Pros: "Very rapid flight. Landed far before scheduled arrival(at least 25 minutes). Checked baggage was delivered before schedule arrival time. Crew was pleasant/helpful."
Cons: "Flight was changed from what was originally scheduled and purchased. I was informed of the change after the purchase before traveling. Thus I had 4 1/2 hours between flights."
Cons: "The crew were clearly not happy to be here New Year’s morning. They didn’t do the proper number of services, then left many of us with our food trays while they all went to take a lengthy break together. Passengers were using the flight attendants call button, and they were ignored."
Cons: "I didn't get to fly. Missed the flight. And asked to postpone for a fee. The airline wouldn't. I purchased a new ticket from another airline."
Cons: "First it's delayed by 1 hour. Few hours before the departure, it's delayed by another hour when I was checking the status from home. Then suddenly it's was back to 1 hour delay, which totally screwed up my travel time to the airport."
Cons: "Don't you even know that correspondences were missed?"
Pros: "Seat 7k best of privacy, window and isle access. Backwards facing is fine."
Cons: "No wireless. Seats could be wider."
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."
Cons: "The selection of music on BA flights has fallen dramatically in the last year. I prefer to listen to music rather than watch movies and in the past there was a good selection and a broad choice."
Pros: "Very helpful crew, smooth flight, choice of small meal - great"
Cons: "No entertainment but it is a short flight"
Cons: "There are no wheel chairs for BA in London. We were made to walk long distances in absence of wheel chairs. No coordination in BA ground staff."
Pros: "Leg room, food and entertainment"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean, and there was enough legroom for me even in economy. The flight attendants were friendly and meal services were well timed. For a 10+ hour flight, this was about as comfortable as it could be."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Pros: "Nice plane, very smooth flight, good landing."
Cons: "Small screen on movies, couldn't find charger station for my iPhone."
Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"
Pros: "Because of a delay in the first leg of my trip, I missed my connection in London. However, I was placed on the next available flight without much hassle, although I did arrive later than the group I was meeting up with."
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "Crew did not seem friendly nor as though they wanted to help. Perhaps because they were all young, perhaps some senior crew members to supervise would be beneficial."
Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was in the premium economy section, which was definitely more comfortable than regular steerage but the 777 cabin was old, and the amenities out of date. No plugs for phone or ipad charging; the in flight entertainment system was buggy and the selection was very limited. There was one drink service. Even business class looks worn out and tattered. No wonder the Gulf based airlines are eating their lunch."
Pros: "On time, good entertainment"
Pros: "Service was good. 2.5 meals, lots of water and drinks, kind service, kind help desk. Good room between seats"
Cons: "Seat bottoms were painful. TV screens were super old, but thats a very first world complaint."
Cons: "The plane takeoff time was delayed by almost two hours. When we got to Oakland, waiting for the luggage took an exceptionally long time. Don't understand why we couldn't sit in the waiting room until a "certain time" before getting on the plane, we had to wait outside in a hall with no seats. The room was not being used by anyone else."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "The airline boarded a little late, but that's typical in Europe. They gave lots of food for the in-flight meal. Several people didn't have their screens work, so they rebooted the system, and then it worked fine. The crew constantly came through with beverages."
Pros: "Really comfortable"
Pros: "Timeliness and service were decent"
Cons: "Food and leg space were mediocre"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything from boarding to landing the flight and atleast could have informed the next connection that we would be late by a few minutes so we could have caught that flight. Instead we ended running around the airport for no reason."
Pros: "The plane wasn't super full so I could spread out more than if there had been someone next to me. The cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats are too close together. 9 boarding groups is excessive. No one boarded between groups 1 and 6 basically. Maybe makes sense for larger flights, but for a smaller one 4 groups would have sufficed and been less confusing."
Pros: "SEAT ok"
Cons: "I was sitting in premium economy and there was no food left. Unacceptable on a long flight. Also on long flight they should give you the can to drink. One little cup of liquid and NO food not even a bag of pretzels or cookies was offered. They could have at least come around with water only later on"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."
Cons: "LEFT 30 MIN LATE, DUE TO CONNECTING FLIGHT."
Pros: "Crew was really great!"
Cons: "My bag never left Chicago so I had to wait a day to get that"
Cons: "Better WiFi and shows"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times"
Cons: "Flight was very late"
Pros: "Good, cheap flight that gets the job done. No issues boarding, seats were fine. Cannot comment on most things as I fell asleep almost immediately."
Cons: "Would've been nice to have had an eye mask / blankets on a red eye flight..."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Umm, maybe a tv in the headrest"
Cons: "Flight left the gate late, then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes causing me to miss my connection to Austin. Couldn't get another flight that night to Austin so flew to Dallas, got in at midnight, had a to get a room which was not reimbursed. So sick of American Airlines and will not use them aga"
Pros: "There was a short delay but it was done professionally and I got a notice about it. I had nice people seating next to me and the craw was ok."
Cons: "It was upsetting that they didn’t have earbuds/headphones as my iPhone headphones can’t connect to the TV so I had to watch a movie without sound. You should have extras. I also wish they had a banana for us, it’s better than pretzels. And cheep and healthy."
Pros: "I have never experienced as smooth a landing on both legs of the trip. I’ve never flown American before and in comparison to other air lines I think they must have the most experienced pilots. Everything else was equal in quality to other US airlines I’ve flown, the usual stuff on long distance flights - but I felt the staff were a notch above the others as regards friendliness and helpfulness. I had a very smooth trip, no delays or problems. I will fly with them again."
Cons: "Bathroom on the plane could have used a good cleaning."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "Limited leg room for such a long flight. The person in front of my husband reclined their seat and he could barely move for the 8 hour flight. Check in process at Heathrow was not wonderful as there was plenty of seats but were not open for people to sit in. It was not pleasant holding a 33 pound toddler waiting in 30 minute line"
Pros: "ontime easy boarding comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "no gluten/dairy free items"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food, worse I’ Ever taste"
Pros: "Great flight experience overall!"
Cons: "Such tiny seats."
Cons: "Crew do not know what kind of menu they have. We had white fish moqueca, rice was uncooked. Moqueca was flavored Boarding was very confused, we bought premium economy, on advertising we could check-in on business class, no specific line for business or economic, only separated line for first clas"
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Cons: "Left Newark 2 hours late which mean missing connections in Chicago by 20 minutes. From that point on American was inept in getting me to MSP."
Pros: "Because he flight wasn’t full, the seat next to me wasn’t occupied, giving me a bit more space."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight was delayed almost two hours."
Pros: "I was under the weather and she was very very very helpful Mary and all AA flight attendants are great I will fly AA as often as I can because of Mary"
Cons: "I have never been treated as poorly as I was by the old biddy that physically took the guitar out of my hands as I was trying to board the plane today. I travel as a professional musician at least once a week and I’ve never been threatened with arrest for having an instrument on my person."
Pros: "Almost everything. Only the food was lacking. I like their new planes. The outlet at the seat in coach. The magazine options at the seat as well. I did not look at the entertainment so I will not rate that. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Just the food options. Ginger snaps was what was served for food and a beverage. I suppose this is what obtains on most airlines these days but can't I hope for something more like maybe a sandwich? AA has the opportunity to set themselves apart in this area."
Pros: "What a great plane with a great crew. Truly an enjoyable flight. And the tailwind got us in quite a bit early!"
Cons: "Lost my next flight connection because this flight was not on schedule."
Pros: "enjoyed the movie selection, liked the old and new movie selections and as the flight was long watched 4 different movies."
Cons: "Paying for alcohol other than wine and beer, seemed petty to pay $8 for a tiny serving of vodka"
Cons: "Delayed. We were unable to change the flight to sit together. Staff not very helpful"
Cons: "Very very cramped"
Pros: "Flight on Time, Confort, Crew"
Cons: "I know if you want food, you must pay but not even a cookie...???"
Cons: "The seats are too tight."
Cons: "I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it."
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Pros: "Nothing. Again, super old plane, no screens, no movies, zero effort."
Cons: "I got tricked into spending $80 for a seat with legroom. I'm 6'6" there is zero compassion and/or understanding for being a tall person. That's fine, I'll pay more. But then I was sat in a 'special' section, the only 2 seats that are narrower than a regular seat. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do. 5 1/2 hours and I spent half the time standing up to avoid serious cramps. As a tall person I am literally getting phased out of airline seats. My knee to hip length prevents me from sitting in some seats. No one cares."
Pros: "The entertainment is modern and had a good mix of movies and music."
Cons: "It was crowded and and hot. I couldn't stand to go to the bathroom because the seat in front of me was leaned so far back."
Cons: "Had to wait on the crew Short fight rushed service"
Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "See above. Worst flight in 60 years of flying.Their systems failed at every point-- changing flights without carrying over seat reservations "Too close to flight time""
Cons: "Attitude of many employees--" tough on you, suck it up. stuff happens". poor communication re flight change, rejection of AA Advantage Mastercard to pay for baggage check and get boarding pass and seat assignment. Rerouted me by 200 yards to TSA checkpoint I could see was 30 yards away. When flight arrived in SFO the arrivals board never showed it and there was no carousel shown for checked baggage. I finally had to go to customer service, where attendant just pointed to my bag on the floor with lots of others from the flight, shrugged, no apology, and chewed her gum a little faster before turning her back."
Cons: "Paid $80 for more leg room seat and I didn't have any more room for my legs at all. Rip off."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."
Pros: "The passengers"
Cons: "A/c was broken"
Pros: "excellent services from employes"
Pros: "Flight attendant was high spirited, funny, and very attentive!"
Cons: "Delayed due to crew member not arriving. They boarded half the plane before realizing and then made those individuals de-plane and re-board again."
Cons: "There was no more room on the plane so me and 10 other passengers had to wait 3 hrs for next flight."
