Cons: "Service, staff, food. Hoping the return flight will be a bit above the norm"
Pros: "The representative at Miami took forever to get a wheelchair. She did not pay attention to my ticket that states assistant needed until I said so. She was in a hurry n did not give me all her attention. I think she was rude and inconsiderate based on my age or don’t feel like been bothered"
Cons: "The representative at Miami took forever to get a wheelchair. She did not pay attention to my ticket that states assistant needed until I said so. She was in a hurry n did not give me all her attention. I think she was rude and inconsiderate based on my age or don’t feel like been bothered"

When I was late, the staff told me I should have asked for help.I had no way of knowing. I was told on another flight about the time limit. The lack of variety of entertainment and the quality of the equipment and the picture resolution made was a joke"
Cons: "I tried used assistence and lost de conetion"
Cons: "Flight attendant moved my purse into an overhead bin while I slept They Couldn’t find it for over an hour. Panic. Passport and cash in purse."
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: "BA recognizes benefits earned with AA (OneWprld alliance). Boarding was quick and get to use the launch to freshen up before the trip."

Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Poor screen quality, ok selection of movies compared to other airlines, poor selection of audio"
Pros: "Service an excellence"
Pros: "Economy was sparsely booked, unlike WT+ and Vlub World, so I had four seats to lie across, but the armrests don’t fold into the seat backs all the way, so it sounds better than it was. The food is rather poor. Beverage service is excellent."
Cons: "The flight left MIA almost an hour late, and the captain didn’t say why. We arrived an hour late at LHR. I had fifty minutes to change terminals for a connection. What other international carrier operates a hub with international flights leaving from two distant terminals? If my connection hadn’t been late"
Cons: "Everything was fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was old with worn furniture, torn material on seats, and non functioning entertainment system"
Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "My flight was changed from Philadelphia to London"
Cons: "Little leg space"
Pros: "Great space and sit in Economy Plus area"
Cons: "The check in process in Miami airport. Crowded, slow."
Pros: "Very good experience, will travel with you again."
Pros: "That the flight only came in 15 minutes late."
Cons: "An old beat up plane in desperate need of renovation especially for a long haul flight. Only one nice flight attendant who tried to help. Others not interested. Terrible seat that I tried to move with no success. Did not eat anything or watch any entertainment. Very unpleasant experience. I have flown this route many times and next time I would fly Swiss through Zurich or Geneva as I have done before."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and hard working."
Cons: "Got at the airport plenty of time prior, waited well over an hour in line to get a boarding pass, while the one ticket taker had no sense of urgency. Could have easily missed the flight."
Cons: "No good provisions for infants"
Pros: "Flying BA is like flying any other American provider. The service was good, the food was meager and mediocre. We flew the same route with SWISS Air a few months ago and the seats are a bit more comfy and the food, snacks and drink were more frequent and delicious."
Cons: "Nothing not to like, just have had better for same economy ticket."
Pros: "Very prompt and good communication from pilot"
Cons: "Really nothing"
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 3 hrs which meant I would miss 2 onward connections-- had to be re- booked on American"
Pros: "Clear boarding, polite crew and a terrific set of films and TV shows."
Cons: "6ft 2 frame in economy was very tight and aisle seats have little space next to entertainment base stations. Food was acceptable, no more."
Cons: "BA flight was ok, but as we booked through American Airlines, online check-in was impossible. In consequence we could get only separated seats, needed more time for checkin etc. As we have booked the flight with AA Budapest-London-Miami-Sao-Paolo, and Santiago-Miami-London- Budapest, we faced this problem several times."
Cons: "Absolutely cold flight, AC was like 15 deg. C"
Pros: "Silent aircraft, good indoor climate"
Cons: "Food was awful, boarding takes too long"
Cons: "Departed one hour late from Miami"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours because maintenance needed to change a tire on the airplane. The delay would have been acceptable if it wasn't for the excuses the airline offered. First, they said maintenance couldn't find a spare tire, and when they did rob a tire from another plane, they said the delay was due to FAA paperwork. These reasons, most likely true, suggest American Airlines (British Airways sub-contracted this flight to its partner, American Airlines) was not prepared to handle such an emergency."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was alright. Good entertainment and comfy plane."
Pros: "I made it safely to Barcelona"
Cons: "Where shall I begin? The crew was ok, makes me miss flying JetBlue, the crew can learn a lot from them in what customer service and friendly crew is about!!! In my opinion, if they had the chance to learn, this crew would be the same as they are, because it feels like, get them in and complete the shift. The seat was so uncomfortable that I spent the entire 9 hrs awake. The entertainment was terrible. When watching a movie you can't simply start it when you want so if you miss show time when it started you have to begin where it is...I hope that 1st class is different than what it feels like to ride in coach because it makes me feel like steerage! I most certainly would not take this airline to Europe unless I had better accommodations because being in the coach section sucks!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, the passenger beside me a young man was over served by the flight attendant and became extremely inebriated so that when I tried to ignore him and sleep, he kept touching me, rubbing my arm and leg. The crew were aware of what was happening and tried to reprimand him. It made my flight extremely difficult and it was all because the flight attendant served him doubles of whiskey (which the passenger was drinking neat) on six occasions, two bottles of red wine and that does not include the doubles the passenger procured for himself from other attendants. In all the behaviour of this passenger made my flight a complete nightmare and it was totally unnecessary for him to be served this much alcohol."
Pros: "A long haul flight in coach can be interesting, but the BA staff, as always, were very cordial. Security was great...thorough."
Cons: "When my husband retrieved his piece of luggage, it smelled terribly lie dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows all the way down because the stench was so bad and throw away the suitcase I had just bought because of the terrible smell. Just awful to come home to that!"
Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"
Cons: "More space."
Pros: "the food was great, and they served dinner right away so passengers could get some sleep before arrival"

Cons: "The fact that one could not book either an aisle or a window without paying significant sums is ridiculous - an additional $74 for a window seat and some were considerably more than that."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Too little room for legs and cabin was colder than usual."
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Cons: "Strange thing: my wife and I were in business class. The stewardess going down my isle said all dinner choices were already used up and I only had a choice of pasta or chicken. Later the stewardess went down the isle for my wife and she had all choices available! Weird. And the stewardess said this was as it was supposed to be."
