We received two meals and frequent beverage service. The seats were pretty comfortable, though when the seat in front of you reclined the space was greatly reduced."

Too many stairs to climb to reach the bus. again more stairs to climb making it a torture for seniors like us. No assistance unless booked as wheelchair assistance. We have travelled all over the world including developing countries and have seen better airports than Frankfort terminal that we used on multiple trips. we really need to reevaluate if we want to take Luftansa again! Thank you"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful. It was so hot I was fanning myself. I had a 11 hour flight and than a 10 hour flight after both British airways, and the same exact food. So I just went hungry. I smelled something amazing so thought I would get a good hot meal as my last meal since I had not had anything in 9hours, but nope, just got a measly cold sandwich. I won’t book British airlines again for international travel, I’ll stick to emirates."
Cons: "Seats are cramped. Also I was sitting on the aisle seat and the food trolley hit my elbow so there isnt much space for it to go down the aisle"

Pros: "Sarah the Cabin Manager was amazing."
Cons: "The business seats are horrible"
Pros: "I’m pleasantly surprised that this ancient plane made it across the Atlantic"
Cons: "Broken entertainment system, no charging ports, broken window screens, broken reading lights, no AC. Plane was too old to be in service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were brilliant! Kind, caring, helpful and smiling.."
Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Also even when you buy a business class ticket British Airways makes you pay to reserve a seat in advance if you don’t have status with them. That feels over the top for a premium customer."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Pros: "The food was quite nice for airline food and the crew was very helpful. Would have like to have been seated together but it wasn't worth the price to upgrade."
Cons: "The return flight was utter chaos for boarding and lots of grumpy people. Making a connection in Philadelphia was quite harrowing as there wasn't much time to make the connection and the lines at the immigration kiosks were terrible."
Cons: "We had three legs on our trip and had to work with Cust Srv at each airport for the next flight"
Cons: "Tough time. British airways wasn’t very helpful. Once our gate was changed no one told us or gave new boarding pass. We did have 7 hours to figure it out. But a clue where to go would have been nice. Missed my connection. Shuttle and hotel was a mess. Got a few hours of sleep outside the airport. Maybe I’ll get to Los Angeles soon."
Cons: "I didn’t receive my bag and I lost one day waiting for it without going anywhere . Without any information about the delivery time . Very disappointing about that services , I even couldn’t change and I still waitingggg"
Pros: "A great flight Thank you"
Cons: "Are you kidding me? Plane was delayed and we miss the next plane. We were in airport 14hr. Still in London."
Pros: "Food servir das ver good. Flights attendants work ver card and seré ver attentive"
Cons: "Some bathrooms found have bien a Little3 cleaner"
Pros: "Crew and seat comfort."
Cons: "No entertainment, not even available if you paid."
Pros: "Cabin relatively new. Leg room in economy adequate. Cabin crew pleasant"
Cons: "Zero checked baggage allowance!! CDN$70 for first checked bag if booked before hand, $113 per checked bag if paid at airport!! All food and drink on this 4 hour flight from London to Santorini must be paid for!! No peanuts. No cup of soda/pop. Maybe a small plastic cup of water. Bring your own iPod or tablet. No seatback entertainment! On Airbus with very limited overhead hand baggage capacity. Roundtrip cost of this 4 hour flight CDN$800 per person booked 3 months in advance, not much less than transatlantic flight of almost twice the time from Toronto to London on Air Canada Boeing 787 with loads of overhead luggage capacity, free first checked bag, 8 inch screen seat back entertainment system, charging ports, one major meal with wine / beer, unlimited pop, plus snack. A real shocker to get Ryanair amenities on this British Airways flight which was no bargain."
Pros: "Everything was just perfect. Thank you very much!"
Pros: "Definitely the best flight so far."
Pros: "Nice flight personnel."
Cons: "Not even free water on the plane for an international flight! Can it get any more basic!?"
Pros: "The personnel were most helpful, pleasant, and reassuring when I discovered I had left something on the plane. It was found and returned to me quite promptly and my continued flight was rebooked with the minimum of fuss (and embarrassment). Everyone was wonderful."
Cons: "I am not a seasoned traveller. Checking for a small item (such as a passport) in the overhead compartment was not possible."
Pros: "After flying internationally in business class for work a number of times, this was my first international flight in economy. Exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Second leg of flight ran late but no big impact."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "It was awesome how the windows are tinted and you can sometimes control it, and the new TV things on the back of every seat are truly amazing!"
Cons: "WHY is there no dairy free food?! I'm vegan but even for lactose intolerant people with more normal diets - there were absolutely no options! "meatballs and rice or pasta with a cheese sauce" - come ON! It's not that hard to make a vegetarian option that also happens to be dairy free!"
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Cons: "There was an agent at the gate in London who went around asking to see everyone's boarding passes. She should have explained the reason for this rather than just walking up to people and asking to see their boarding passes since this doesn't usually happen. She didn't explain why she was doing it until AFTER some of us refused. She explained it was for added security requirements (random checks) because we were travelling to the US."
Pros: "the staff was nice"
Cons: "The entire flight was boarded before the crew determined the engine would not start. We sat on the plane without AC in Chicago for nearly 3 hours. Ultimately the flight was delayed overnight causing me to lose an entire day of vacation in Italy."
Cons: "No USB port for charging phone and poor audio watching entertainment"
Cons: "the last part from london to milan was not great they did not offer coffee or water and the crew was very unfriendy"
Pros: "General advantage of flying with BA like T5 and lounges"
Cons: "Food quality going down every time and no flight entertainment for a 4 hrs flight."
Pros: "Smooth and nice flight. Crew was friendly and attentative."
Cons: "I found it surprisingly coincidental that both my wife's and my checked bags did not make the flight to Santorini. Of course, given how the process in dealing with Kayak and this booking, it did not surprise me. Any calls or customer service related questions were handled as though we were 2nd class citizens. I've never been treated like this traveling, but always the attitude came from "oh, you booked this through a discount site" and then I was handled accordingly. I booked it through Kayak for ease as I planned a 7-city, 21 day trip around the Adriatic. Now we'll do our honeymoon without a wardrobe change, filing claims for the contents of our bags, as no one can tell us what happened, or where the bags are, and we're about to depart for our next city. Never, NEVER book a trip from a 3rd party. The seats next to the toilets that don't recline, attitude from airlines, now my first lost bag in 10 years (I fly 3 times a month, too)."
Pros: "Reached Home"
Cons: "No Proper servings Entertainment was poor Beverages were not adequate Seats were narrow"
Cons: "Poor service in first class and nobinflight entertainment for the whole flight of 11.5 hours."
Pros: "None of my nine checked in luggage arrived. The following 8 of the 9 came. One is still missing. This is a British Airways ticket using American Air for the first leh."
Cons: "The fact that my luggage and that of my children did not arrive."
Pros: "Despite a four hour delay the staff was in good spirits and generally pleasant. The entertainment selections were also comprehensive."
Cons: "The food choices were very limited (chicken curry or pasta alfredo) neither of which were dairy free."
Pros: "It was open skies British air."
Cons: "Could not get seat assigned until I was at the gate. Same thing occurred on the way to Edinburg. Not sure what the issue is but it happened both ways and was a problem."
Pros: "It arrived in Greece on time, good landing."
Cons: "Arrived in Greece for daughter's wedding. They lost all 14 family members luggage for 4 days!! Received our luggage 6PM the night before wedding, which caused terrible distress for the Bride especially and all 14 family members. Imagine being in Greece for 4 days with nothing but the clothes you traveled in. Horrible!! Will never buy a BA ticket again."
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable. Again, no free wifi in the XXI century. Hello !!!"
Pros: "Better to avoid BA. At least they should serve some water. Next time I'll use some other airlines to get to London."
Pros: "Very friendly and good flight attendants. Pilots talked to passengers and kept us updated throughout the flight."
Cons: "Crying Children!"
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailing patient and polite and as helpful as they could be. Given the situation with the IT problem at BA, it was amazing that we were scheduled, and took off on time and arrived in Tel Aviv on time. Congratulations to all!"
Cons: "We were at the back of the plane, which was pretty difficult for my 6'6" husband and his long legs. We were told every seat was full (because of the IT problem). However, after takeoff it became apparent that there were some empty seats, but they weren't offered to us. One man was asleep across three exit row seats, for example. We had two seats in a three seat row, which would have given us a bit more room, but a woman was moved to the window seat with us, to accommodate a religious man who didn't want to sit next to her. She was very nice, but the whole situation was annoying and distasteful. And, unfortunately, the food was just as bad as our last flight."
Pros: "The crew, they were very friendly and responsive when my seat equipment was found broken"
Cons: "My seat equipment was broken so there was no film for a long flight."
Pros: "Plan is comfy, food is good."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding in T5 LHR. Passport checks in SFO- even for US citizens- are hopelessly slow."
Cons: "I bought an extra piece of laugagge and I had problems on both check in processes because I wasn't shown on the system."
Pros: "I liked the extra compartment and arm rest by the window seat."
Cons: "The crew wasn't too observant. I had my blinker button on for 40 minutes because I realized I was never given a headphone to watch tv. As I patiently waited, I saw the flight attendants in the back doing nothing but chatting. So I tried clicking again in hopes they would head and come to assist me. But nothing. So I had to hail one over for headphones. They also kept the curtains open the entire flight even though people were trying to sleep. I had to put a jacket over my face to block the light and so did the person sitting next to me."
Pros: "British Airlines Club - staff were helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Booked last minute due to a missed connection. As soon as I did and went to counter I discovered the flight was delayed almost three hours. It should have been noted as delayed prior to purchase."
