Pros: "Delicious inflight meal and outstanding service!"
Cons: "Please keep up the same standards"
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Don’t pack people in like sardines! Our seats were so close it was in humane! Also we were in the back of the plane and it was uncomfortably hot! Why are there no individual a/c blowers over each seat!! Because of the heat and the cramped seats had to keep getting up and standing in the back because I was so claustrophobic!! Miserable, miserable, miserable!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Long delays, started in Las Vegas all the way thru to Athens"
Cons: "Ordered special meal, did not get it so did not eat. Cabin crew unfriendly. Old aircraft so could not hear the announcements. Screen did not work. Bags took ages to come out despite being priority. BA has definitely gone downhill."
Pros: "Seats were nice"
Cons: "Complementary water... It was a decently long fly not to offer anything."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Inadequate frequency and quality of service by flight attendants, mediocre food, small portions at dinner service, poor responsiveness of seat controls, incredibly poor resolution and small sized video screen in business class. Nothing but candy and pretzels available for snacks between the long time between meal services. No separate jetway for first and business class passengers. Several hour delayed takeoff after boarding due to multiple maintenance issues and equipment failures."
Pros: "The staff was kind"
Cons: "Too many people"
Pros: "Plane was much more comfortable than the old AA plane we flew to Lisbon. Crew was excellent. First meal was good. I was in window seat, and enjoyed the side bin with also gave armrest space."
Cons: "Second meal of "hot pocket" type of thing was poor. Plan took off late due to security checks"
Cons: "Have to pay for everything even soda and snacks"
Pros: "Meal service"
Cons: "Security at Heathrow. Check-in at b.s. was very v3ry slow. Charged us for coffee and tea flight from map to heathrow"
Pros: "Crew was great. Accommodating and welcoming."
Cons: "Food quality could have been better. Snack was very poor before landing."
Cons: "I understand the flight was delayed because of the thunderstorm, but even then, the boarding process was horrible, at the airport they didn't know what was going on and people could board with no logic. It's also unbelievable that with a flight with such a delay, where we were told that at the gate that there was a limited amount of food on board, whatever was available (even water) was not kindly offered, but was on sale only."
Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."
Pros: "The Business Class accommodations and staff were excellent. The boarding process was on-time and painless and made a very long trip enjoyable. Despite my poor experience checking luggage, see the dislike comments, there were two employees who did go out of their way at the end of my poor check-in experience to help me. I did not get their names, but their good service was greatly appreciated. The plane crews were also awesome!"
Cons: "1.Outdated website information: I have a small travel guitar that fits in the overhead bins and I always take it with me when I travel, with no issues. It counts as my overhead carry-on. I checked the British Airways website prior to leaving the U.S. and it said small instruments were okay. I was able to board from San Jose, USA, with no issues. However, I was told at Heathrow that no stringed instruments were allowed at all, under no circumstances, ever, no matter the size, even Business Class, even First Class, even if other airports were not enforcing the rules. The rules that ARE NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE 2. Poor customer service: Due to the above, at Heathrow airport, I had mixed signals everywhere and had to check-in THREE times, twice to oversize, I was sent back and forth all over the place, finally having to go all the way through the airport to pay to have my item boxed. Most of the folks along the way were extremely unpleasant and rude and acted as if it was the craziest thing in the world that I would have a carry-on travel guitar. TRAVEL guitar, small, not full size, not needing any special treatment. Most of the agents, who knew I was struggling with this, did not help me, for example, I had to wait in line all over again, twice! There was one woman that tried to help me and put me to the front of the line on one occasion and the last agent was helpful as well. I did not get any names, which I should have, because at the end, I FINALLY had those two staff members who helped me (see liked comments). I still had to check my box, but the final agent really went out of her way to make me feel better about the experience because she could see that I was given the runaround. But the folks at Oversize and the pre-Security line, were absolutely horrible and rude. No excuse for it at all. None."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Hot and sweaty. Poor food quality. Stingy on beverages"
Pros: "Food good! Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food was great and plentiful! The crew were friendly and helpful. Seats were compact. But that’s usual for airlines. Plan extra time for customs...aaaaugh!!!! Two hours! I’ve never had to wait that long before."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Food was served cold. They came back later and offered it hot, but it was way later."
Pros: "Cabin Crew flight data punctuality"
Cons: "That I had to PAY for water to drink that was not tap water No room for my carry-on in overhead bins...took some arranging."
Cons: "Being charged for everything! Even a coke....really! Couldn't reserve a seat until 24 hrs. without paying extra ."
Pros: "cheaper pricing"
Cons: "no mention of visa entry to US when I booked my trip !! caused me all sorts of problems .... you must make double and triple check that when booking a ticket to a country that requires a visa it is a 'click to accept' thanks"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Pros: "Certainly not the female airline attendant from Johannesburg to London on 1/4/2018."
Cons: "I boarded the plane and made a mistake by sitting in the wrong seat and placed my hang-up bag in the overhead compartment. When I realized that my actual seat was 10 rows back on the very last row, I moved, leaving my hang-up bag near the first seat. As time passed, I heard a woman on the intercom say something about a lost "jumper". After learning that a "jumper" is a sweater, I asked the nearby airline attendant if the sweater was a navy color, like the one that I had left in the overhead. A female airline attendant came to me, carrying my hang-up bag with my sweater and repeated 4 times that I was lucky because she was about to put my "jumper" and hangup-bag off the plane and leave it in Johannesburg since no one had responded sooner!!!! I was so stunned that I could not say anything. I only kept wondering why would anyone go into the overhead and start pulling things out? Why would someone take such extreme measures and not walk down the aisle, asking every person on the plane, including the people on the back row? This type of thing could happen to anyone. Since I did not have a name tag on the bag and I live in the US, it would have been near impossible to ever find my bag again if left in So.Africa! Plus, the woman went on and on in a very rude & condescending manor when all I could do was sit in shock, wondering why she would take the time to go through the overhead and look for a hang-up bag that does not have a name tag!!!!"
Pros: "The seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The service was kinda rude."
Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"
Cons: "Never got on the flight. the delay in the previous flight did not allow me to board this one."
Pros: "Everything was fine....."
Pros: "British AIT flight attendants are the nicest"
Cons: "The metal entertainment boxes where your feet go- io am 183cm and the boxes don’t allow me to stretch my legs"
Pros: "Leg room was good. Direct flight to Europe."
Cons: "Old plane. Poor seat entertainment - TV was terribly old and outdated. No plugins at the seats. Seats were smaller than most economy seats. Food was pretty poor, and drinks were very small and not enough for a 10hour flight. Expected A LOT more from British Airways. This flight was poorer standard than many low cost flights. We have done a lot of traveling overseas and this was one of the worse flights."
Pros: "The flight was great. Business class is the way to go if it’s in your budget. However, the British Airways photos of business class does not quite reflect reality. It’s just a regular seat with more leg room."
Pros: "The quality of food let it down but crew cheerful and helpful throughout the flight!"
Cons: "Not good enough to let back of plane consistently have no choice of food because it has run out. Maybe alternate end of plane you start service to avoid this happening."
Pros: "Great crew who managed brilliantly under the circumstances...."
Cons: "The aircraft was unbearably hot - crew member in rear economy member said it was 42 degrees at one point. Took almost 2 hours to get the back of the plane (where I was sitting) down to 27 degrees. Understand that temperature can only be reduced in small increments but why was the temperature on board allowed to get to 42 degrees prior to boarding?? The crew were brilliant, and hats off to them for working in such difficult conditions."
Cons: "The lack of service"
Cons: "At check in desk , i have been told that the ticket is suspended and cancelled !! I asked why ? She replied : contact british airways !! I was waiting more than 45 minutes standing looking for a solution before i miss the flight , until finally , i called the customer service( 25 minutes waiting) in LOndon , where they explained to the boarding desk that they should check the credit card to release the ticket !!!!"
Cons: "The food , it will be great to have a salad option ."
Pros: "meal was excellent, blankets were appreciated"
Cons: "Seats were way to cramped in economy. Center seating armrests did not elevate -- even tho there were no other passengers in my row, I could not spread out. I ended up with difficulty walking for 2 days afterwards due to T-band cramps. Please advise your passengers that they need to get up and walk every couple of hours. Common sense, but none that I apparently had."
Pros: "The captain kept us aware of the delay and the reasons for the delay."
Cons: "No free food or drink other than water."
Pros: "very friendly and helpful staff. by chance small upgrade to comfortable seats next to the emergency exit."
Cons: "no food, no entertainment system, no facility to charge cell phones."
Pros: "The first class steward who helped us when he didn't need too. The free films."
Cons: "I flew British Air in the past and had excellent service. I actually would have paid a bit more to choose them as an airline. No longer! Horrible service. Our stewardess was rude and unhelpful. Best example, when my husband turned in the remains of his last meal, something had leaked over his tray table. She didn't bother to help. He luckily had some extra napkins. She watched him clean it up and then left without taking the soiled napkins. Thanks. The meal quality was poor on the international flight. American handled the start of our vacation. Such a superior international flight quality compare to British Air."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."
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."
Cons: "Extra charge for items traditionally included on trans-Atlantic flights, entertainment choices dated and limited, assigned seating clumped travelers together instead of spreading them out among available travelers."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "1. BA said I couldn't get a seat before 24 hrs before. Then when I tried to get a seat assignment I was told (by email) to contact Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus said that I should have called before 24 hrs before, and that seats were now in control of the gate (this still 22 hrs before flight time). Total lack of coordination. 2. At check-in I was first told that my bag was too big for carry-on, although BA had accepted it. I shrunk it down. Then I was told it weighed too much at 15 kg. When I asked why BA accepted the weight I was told BA's weight limit was different. 3. Net net, if BA is "arranging" the flight through a code-share it should have responsibility for insuring I am treated like a BA customer. Aer Lingus' customer treatment leads much to be desired."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable. Especially the number of toilets is very small: only 1 (ONE) on each side in the touristic part. And it is on the flight London-Las Vegas (10 hours)! One has to go for taking some drink himself. Not enough drinking was suggested during the flight. The screen is very bad. No real choice of movies."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and departed on schedule."
Cons: "Difficult to find where to catch this flight. Gate not printed on boarding pass. BA changed our seats without informing us."
Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."
Cons: "The food was not that good. The crew wasn't smiling at all."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Food, drinks deboarding is awful, just awful experience"
Cons: "Flight Attendant should dis infect the lavatory everytime a customer uses since they have plenty of downtime (no longer serving refreshments)."
Cons: "Temperature in AA cabins are 10 degrees or more colder than your competitors. Uncomfortably cold in AA flights. Recently I have flow, with spirit, Southwest, United, and Delta. In all those cases the cabin temperature was warmer than AA. I have to say as an exec plat, I wish AA would fix this issue. It is something that ER waiting rooms have adjusted and it has statistically shown to improve satisfaction scores."
Cons: "The experience was excellent."
Pros: "SEAT ok"
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "Seats could be bigger after all you get charge for a trip, they could also have more flights and stop cramping up the place then there’s no overhead space. Perfect example of Corporate greed"
Cons: "Delay upon delay"
Cons: "They had 3 hrs delay. I have missed my connecting flights. They rebooked me to London but I had to stay in London overnight, they promised me hotel voucher but once in London the promise wasn't kept. She told me due to weather conditions causing the delay there is nothing they can do. I can pay for hotel and dispute it later. On top of that hey have lost my luggage. It was a nightmare. I will never fly American Airlines again!"

Pros: "It’s economy so I didn’t expect much but there seemed to be more room than other flights from different carriers I’ve traveled with in the past."
Cons: "Wasn’t impressed that I was charged for premium seating when my original flight was canceled three times in two days. I understand they can’t control the weather but my vacation was cut from seven days to 5 days."
Cons: "Late flights with last minute notifications with no alternatives and then more late flights due to missing flight crews."
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: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers bringing hot food on plane. KFC and McDonalds odours major in first 30 minutes"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in counter made fun of my surname. Bad start but not noteworthy unless combined with the rest of the experience. The flight was delayed causing me to miss another AA connection by minutes. Waited in line to be told I wouldn't get on a flight til the following day, they couldn't help with accommodation and I wouldn't receive my luggage until the following day. In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."
Pros: "Early and friendly."
Cons: "The fact that for an aisle seat in economy I need to pay extra. I feel nickeled and dimed."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Excellent service and airplane. Just need better Entertsinment system ( more updated ) and more programs and movies to watch."
Cons: "Entertsinment system , TV's are too small and not enough programs"

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly, the plane was clean and food was ok"

Cons: "Servicio a bordo; un sandwiche viejo y agua!"
Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "This thing that they called an exit row had no extra legroom whatsoever!"
Pros: "Offer to send the carry on for free at the gate."
Cons: "Have to pay for check in bag. Used to be free!!!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Paying for extra legroom, delays, being told the flight may be canceled if we didn't leave by a certain time, no beverage service"
Pros: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding sequence"
