Pros: Great beer selection on the flight. After spending 4 days in Paris with all wine it was great to have an IPA on the flight. More importantly, the service was incredible, airport was beautiful, and transport was seamless.

Pros: The EasyJet staff both in LGW & PRG were excellent. I felt they went out of their way to accommodate our needs. They were all friendly and professional. EasyJet will be our go to airline for our flights to London and back.

Cons: Though I’m not sure it is easyjet’s Fault, I didn’t like that in LGW the board said the flight was delayed an hour, but left on time. Could have gone horribly wrong had we procrastinated thinking that we had extra time.

Pros: The plane take off and landing were great. The cabin crew were pleasant.

Cons: Boarding was confusing as announcements were hard to hear about zones. The plane was old and run down. The top of my arm rest had a plastic cover that kept falling off. There was no entertainment on the plane. It was a 2 hour flight from Madrid to London and we didn't not get any refreshments for free. I would at least expect a drink and pretzels as that's standard everywhere else.

Excellent 8.4

Pros: shorter flight but they still offered us food, a drink, and tea. Also, shortly after the food was served a flight attended offered free newspapers.

Cons: boarding was a little odd. we had to take a bus across the tarmac and board the pane from the ground. We were not sure what entrance was closest to our sets ended up going the long way.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: I have to rate British Airways as a 10 out of 10 in almost all categories...comfort of the plane, food and service, boarding, notifications, crew, etc. In particular, the long haul flight from London to Seattle everything was truly top notch!

Cons: Their baggage handlers damaged several parts on my checked-in luggage...three zipper pulls and one clasp. What are they doing with the bags? How can they damage so many things in one fell swoop? This is a good quality Atlantic suitcase. Also, on the short flights, in this case Madrid to London, they are now charging for EVERYTHING...even water and coffee. They said it was a new policy as of 1/1/2018.

Cons: Iberia has been consistently late in arrival. I missed my connecting flight on the way out to spain and nearly missed a connecting flight returning to the USA.

Pros: I like that express passes were given as we left the first plane. It made getting through the line easier.

Cons: There were no weather issues and we left late from JFK. Most people on the flight had a connecting flight. The majority of the people missed the second flight though the plane had not departed. Everyone had to be rebooked on a later flight.

Cons: You never gave me the opportunity to pick my seat and I was given a window seat over and back with 2 fat pigs next to me. What the hell were you thinking. You baggage personnel stole the gifts We purchased for our grandchildren in the Baltimore airport terminal baggage area. Where was TSA security?

Good 7.6

Pros: Bigger plane than I was expecting. Had I known that I would have upgraded to a better seat. I was just expecting a tiny puddle jumper so this was a nice surprise. Crew were nice, offered food/drinks but I didn't want to buy any.

Cons: The plane had inseat screens but they said that licensing agreements prevented them from offering any video, games or news selections on a 2.5hr flight. The Pilot said he would turn on the in-flight navigator but it never did work, so I'm not sure what happened there. No internet connection in their fleet yet either. Clearly, this is a first world problem and I would still fly BA. But it's also 2017 and these features aren't "new"; I remember having in-flight entertainment back in the early 2000's on Delta flights in the US, so I'm not sure why it's taking more premium airlines so long to catch up.

MAD
LHR
Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Was upgraded to business in my first leg.

Cons: The flight was late, so I was going to miss my connection. I do not appreciate having to wait three hours just to get a new route, and much less the Iberia staff working "on behalf" of British Airways, blaming BA, the system and what not, and being unable to answer straightforward questions such as, Can you give me the confirmation number for the last leg of the flight so I can get a boarding pass in the United Airlines app. Uncommonly ignorant (I speak Spanish as my native language, so that was not the barrier) and uncommonly rude.

Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
