Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "it was and, it was as well"
Cons: "nothing flying wise, but airport is kind of a maze, if is any short connecting flight and late arrival, you have to run fast."
Cons: "staff Attitude could be better. Also no milk for toddlers but free vine for people to get drunk, be loud on overnight flight, then snore and stink drunk. My table was all in some snort when I opened it to put my meal on. Dirty lavatory floors."
Cons: "Size of the seats"
Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"
Pros: "I was pleased that the flight was on time, comfortable and with friendly staff."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the wait on a packed bus to the plane and the rocky bus ride to the plane."
Cons: "Seat in row ahead was broken, causing it to recline too far and not correctly return upright"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flights attendants attentiveness and friendliness. The food was surprisingly good (I enjoyed a nice curry dish); we appreciated the portions as well as snacks on our long flight. The music and video selection also made for a much more pleasant flight. The plane was newer and offered features like USB charging ports. Would definitely fly British Airways again!"
Cons: "My only complaint would be the tightness (closeness of rows) of the seats. But it’s coach, so not much can be done there. They were at least comfortable and reclined quite a bit."
Pros: "The air hostesses were first class. Pleasant, efficient and professional."
Cons: "The tv selections. Could have had more variety"
Pros: "The plane was newly refurbished. Entertainment was excellent. Seat room, or course, is an issue and comfort was a little above average for economy, but the operation was well-run, the food was descent, and entertainment was solid."
Cons: "The screens on the seatbacks could use shielding from oblique angles. If the people in front of you decide to binge-watch movies late into the night, it can interfere with sleep."
Pros: "All BA staff were professional, pleasant and helpful. My seat had more leg room than I was expecting (after a flight Seattle to Heathrow where my knees were jammed against the seat ahead of me."
Cons: "I was frustrated that I had to pay for either a cup of coffee or water. Since all healthcare providers recommend that one must drink water on a flight to stay hydrated and healthy, a complimentary bottle of water would have supported healthy travel. Due to a short layover in Heathrow, I had no time to fill my own water bottle."

Cons: "No complimentary drink or snack, how come?"
Cons: "When we arrived at gate, I went to ask the woman at the desk if this was the correct location for our flight. She mumbled "we haven't started boarding yet" and dismissed my question. rudely. She was harried, and continued to act that way when the boarding process started."
Pros: "Good economy flight from Heathrow to Madrid. Would recommend!"
Pros: "Impressed with the plane! Great service,"

Dr. David Miller Dmiller@Illinois.edu"

Pros: "excellent we got upgraded to premium economy so all was good"
Pros: "The food and entertainment options were both above average."
Cons: "The flight was being run by Iberia, not British Airways. Iberia has a policy which did not allow me to check in without proof of a return flight. Unfortunately, my travel partner had booked the return flight and did not share the details with me. I was not able to reach my travel partner and, as such, was forced to buy a new ~$2,300 return ticket on the spot in order to provide the necessary proof. This was an extreme inconvenience, as I nearly missed my flight. If Iberia or British Airways made its travelers aware of this policy in advance of their check in. I have no intention of flying Iberia ever again."
Cons: "No good music in the entertainment and no good movies either."
Pros: "Flight from Venice to philly was good besides the fact it was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay"
Pros: "The plane was packed. But the staff was great.having deal with people opening the over baggage compartment and leaving them open. They just close the compartment with a smile"
Cons: "The only thing i didn'tlike were the dumb people making their job harder.."
Cons: "Lost our luggage both at destination and on return to Chicago. Also canceled flights resulting in having to stay overnight at layover location spending night sleeping on sofa without blankets. Due to cancelled flight we didn't get to spend night in hotel I already payed for and now will lose day of work. My daughter and I will never travel with these are lines again. WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED AND ANGRY. AMERICAN AIRWAYS AND BRITISH AIRWAYS are huge disappointment to us."
