Cons: "No breakfast, no snacks, tired seats, poor entertainment , dreadful food (and I LOVE airline food!)"
Pros: "My seat was comfortable, with good head and neck support."
Cons: "BA doesn't allow guitars as carry ins, unlike most every other overseas carrier. That's a major negative for me, and I've spread the word to other musicians who will avoid the company. Terrible policy."
Cons: "Did not get seat I reserved. Stuck in middle seat. Very late."
Pros: "The gate agents had no idea how to effectively board passengers in an expeditious and civilized manner. The on-board crew was top-notch. Seat room was adequate, but justthat."

Cons: "nothing, everything was great!"
Cons: "They sat me in the last row but at least the chair reclined. Boarding was a mess. But entertainment and food were decent."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was great & the food was good. Service was good."
Cons: "BA doesn’t let you reserve seats when you book your flights, even for business class, never heard of that with any other airline, that’s just not right when you are spending so much money. Luckily for me the seat next to me was vacant, hence it was fine, otherwise it would have been very uncomfortable as it is a little too tight. on the 777 having 8 seats in a row is a tight space even with all the configuration."
Cons: "Paying $7000+ For a seat like this is a travesty"
Cons: "Plane was late which caused us to miss our connection and spend an extra 12 hours traveling to Gothenburg"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. Everything excellent."
Pros: "Games at the tv."
Cons: "Food do not tase good. Very litle space in the economic flys. You make bigger plains with less spaces I was feeling like a bag of potatoes"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system did not work well."
Cons: "Awesome staff! Great food and tea!"
Pros: "Both the staff and flight were great!"
Pros: "We Arrived safely. The captain explained the situations well."
Cons: "We left late and arrived late. They ran out of one of the menu items."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Seats are ridiculously small! I'm only 5'11" and could barely fit. I can't imagine what it's like for a taller man. It's also the first time I ever broke into a sweat on a flight. There are no overhead vents! Complaints to the staff were met with a surly reply that nothing could be done. Food was inedible. Movies were ok but they put the box for the equipment under the seat in front of you! What little space we have for our feet is now taken up by the entertainment equipment!! I've had much better experiences on discount regional airlines than on this trans-Atlantic "premium" carrier."
Cons: "Four hours before departure, the flight was canceled! Unfortunately, the ticket workers were too few in trying to reboot all the passengers. I was transferred to United after an hour and a half wait but was sent back to Aer Lingus (who was operating the flight for BA) by United because the Aer Lingus ticket personnel made the reservation on United but failed to provide the information necessary to generate the ticket. Never British Airways/ Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "Plane was nice"
Cons: "Didn't get food order correct"
Cons: "Seats are too small for anybody above 5'8". My knees were hitting the back"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment with access to recent movies. Service was good."
Cons: "Fee for assigned seating. No outlets for charging electronic devices."
Pros: "The lounge services and staff at the airport."
Cons: "seats and surfaces not so clean in club world."
Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."
Pros: "Many things including the seat space and less crowded flight"
Cons: "Cost. One way close to 2000 USD"
Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "Bad food. Very few portions. Serving drinks only once and making one pick a beverage for the meal and nothing mere."
Pros: "Maybe to other people the service was regular - but this was the fanciest flight I'd ever been on. The crew was great - never actually knew that much technology was available on the plane. I'm not a very fancy person and this was a really fun way to fly."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "When the person in front of you lowers his seat 5 minutes after takeoff and keeps it down the whole flight, it makes it hard to eat and really uncomfortable. I have a LOT of miles (avieos or whatever they call them) but never get offered an upgrade to economy plus like I do on other airlines."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant. Blankets were nicer than most. Headrests on seat were good once figured out how to adjust it."
Cons: "It is bad enough being in economy seats on international flights, but now the box holding the electronics for the entertainment system takes up about 1/3rd of the under seat space. So trying to stretch out and sleep was very difficult and uncomfortable. Curry chicken was disgusting."
Pros: "Back facing window seat, flat bed, great service, good food, arrival on time"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, the attendants attendant, the food surprisingly good, and the entertainment outstanding. An entire library of in-flight movies, a display of where your flight is in the world, a few in-lfight games and even an in-flight chatroom."
Cons: "A few times, I feel like the attendants either didn't notice me."
Cons: "Food unpleasant taste"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Pros: "quiet plane"
Cons: "2.5 hours delayed flight without prompt notifications. Honest and prompt flight-delay alerts. Updates for delay came *every* half-hour. No opportunity to schedule ANYTHING based truthful delay estimations and the lack of timely communication."
Cons: "Bags didn't get loaded, plane delayed. Poor customer service."
Pros: "Staff polite and provided fast service."
Cons: "Boarding was hazy and let room for loosing the plane."
Pros: "Seats and plane condition"
Cons: "The flight was operated by Air Canada, who habitually assume either that the people in the final row have no hand luggage or simply suffer from a severe lack of operational storage capacity. Overhead bins full of spare plastic cups. As far as the crew are concerned, no problem, because you can just push your way three or four rows forward while everyone else is boarding and then take someone else's overhead space. When will Air Canada learn how to run an airline?"
Pros: "Flight went extremely smooth. No issues during the layover they even got us an earlier flight to our layover destination, giving us more time between flights."
Pros: "Our flight boarded slightly later than expected but ended up taking off on time. Flight crew was courteous and provided water the entire time to ensure everyone was hydrated. In flight entertainment was nicely done with a personal touch screen headrest TV that had ample TV and movies to choose from. We landed slightly ahead of schedule and by the time I got to baggage claim, my oversized bag (snowboard bag) was already waiting for me."
Pros: "TV in seat, new plane. I liked nothing else about this crappy airline."
Cons: "Delayed because they couldn't fit the luggage on the plane, had to pay extra for my family to sit together, worst service ever on board, the slowest old ladies pushing the cart, 90 minutes late in perfect weather, took forever to get the baggage."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew helped make the situation better but a 3 hour delay made my experience unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 5 mins before I arrived at airport and never received any notification"
Cons: "Information provided on delays was limited and information on connecting by flights was incorrect"
Pros: "TSA precheck"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"
Cons: "Check in staff not present until after 430, yet it was recommended to arrive at the airport 2 hrs early for the 6am flight. The group of people waiting were unorganized and handled poorly which I suspect was due to such low staffing i.e. 1 person trying to adress, organize and then process ~100 people. Entertainment system didn't work on the flight either."
Pros: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"
Pros: "The people at the front desk in gander were great"
Cons: "There were delayed at every stop. I had a 9 hour delay because the flight attendant had food poisoning. How was there not a replacement?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than hour."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."
Pros: "Crew on board as accommodating as they could be."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport to find hundreds of people on line trying to check in. No Air Canada employees were explaining anything to anyone, as we all stood in line for over a hour, nervous we'd miss our flights. Word was passed from the front of the line that the system was down. They held planes, so I guess everyone eventually made it to their flights--but not until everyone was stressed out to the limit. Lack of assistance from Air Canada personnel was glaring."
Pros: "Food on board"
Cons: "Waited 50 mom for delay. Arrived and delayed on tarmac 1hr and long wait into duties."
Pros: "Other than the usher at the check-in desk, all other Air Canada staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Usher at check-in desk had terrible communication skills. He had an antagonist tone that set an aggressive tone for those just trying to comply to his directions."
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Had to pay for food but it was quite good so I didn't mind. Supposedly the crew were short staffed but I found them attentive and helpful and to be honest I believe the people who complained may have been a little precious."
Pros: "Everything was solid."
Cons: "There was no WI-FI which was inconvenient. The crew was good...could have been nicer on the way from Newark to Vancouver."
Cons: "They over sold tickets"
Cons: "The crew was unbelievably rude"
Pros: "The flight attendant Kaldon was amazing. He was friendly, professional, and you could tell he loved his job. He truly made the short flight something special."
Pros: "Delayed without cell phone text notification update."
Cons: "Crew was late and did not apologize. they were also rude during service"
Cons: "Paying for baggage."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "Right on time. No problems boarding"
Cons: "No food/entertainment"
Pros: "It's on time"
Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."
Pros: "One of the flight attendant saw I needed help holding my second big bag while I was putting my carry on in and she held it for me without me asking and helped me find my seat, it was very stress relieving for me, and I really appreciated that. She was also very nice to everybody."
Cons: "I had a sprite and the amount was very little, I feel like the cups have got smaller. But that's not a big deal"
Pros: "There was an excellent agent during boarding. I didn't catch his name but he was a tall dark skin gentlemen and he went over and beyond to assit me. His kindness left a lasting impression on me. I only wish I had his name, because he deserves to be noticed for his excellent service."
Pros: "Early and luggage delivered quickly"
Cons: "The flight was considerably delayed, so that we missed our connection, the airport personnel at Newark sent us all over the place attempting to pass off the problem onto somebody else- even encouraging passengers to go to Montreal and "figure it out from there." Bags were taken off the plane and then put back on...the subsequent flight (the next day) was also delayed, and required half he plane to sprint through Montreal to their connections. It was not worth it. Especially considering I tried to call Air Canada for some of my refund and the number they gave me was a fax line."
Cons: "Flight out of Newark delayed so we were going to miss the connection. We were rebooked to fly via London but we lost 6 hours in Rome. Air Canada attendant at Newark said the flight was always delayed and passengers regularly needed to be rebooked. You should recommend air Canada cancels selling this itinerary or bringing the Newark flight forward to de risk any delays"
Cons: "All three Air Canada flights that I had to take on this itinerary were late including the 2nd one which was six hours late. Air Canada personnel on this 2nd flight did not do a good job of communicating information to the customers during the delay. Air Canada booked be on a 3rd night that lead me to only get 3 hours sleep in a hotel. AC does not work with the customers when booking flights. they just make changes after the previous flight has left the ground."
Pros: "Flight was good.dela"
Cons: "Delay for both ways"
Pros: "Entertainment system is good"
Cons: "Crew was an hour late arriving at airport so flight was delayed. No food, not even a snack, on a 5+ hour flight is not acceptable."
Pros: "Free movies."
Cons: "Delays at the gate going and coming back"
Pros: "Great crew. But aircraft had mechanical issues."
Cons: "Stuck on plane for 90 minutes before take off."
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable and didn't recline"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Delayed for 4hrs and less than adequate meal voucher for $10 for dinner? Very disappointed and I'm a long time AC customer."
Pros: "Everyone was super polite"
Cons: "After waiting at the airport for hours with multiple delays the flight cancelled. I still haven't made it home. Today is my little girls 2nd birthday and I have been away from her for 12 days now. The earliest flight I could get is 10am. I won't get home till at least 12 noon."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. We even landed a good 20 minutes before we were supposed to. Best flight I've been had"
