Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It’s ok"
Cons: "Timing and food"
Pros: "Given that this flight, like just about every other BA9 flight for the past week, was a delayed departure, this flight delayed 3 hours, it is difficult to say that this was a good flight. The flight was full, and some business class passengers moved to economy class, with some economy passengers being removed from the flight to free up essential "rest areas" for the crew."
Cons: "Whilst I understand that the planes make no money sitting on the tarmac, maybe the schedule needs tweaking to permit a little more time for maintenance?"
Pros: "The seat was awful. Narrow with little leg room , hard on the backside, minimal recline."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Amazing crew , very accommodating , and friendly , professional, excellent!"
Cons: "Perhaps slightly better food, however choice of liquor & beer was excellent with tremendous service. 5 star service across the board."
Pros: "Crew and agents very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "BA computer system did not link our payment for excess baggage to our itinerary so we had to spend time checking in to resolve. Carry your receipts for any payments."
Pros: "N/A on food and entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the food was okay!!"
Cons: "Poor entertainment, uncomfortable seats & delayed"
Pros: "I flew with my sister who has disability. Check in was very smooth and the Spanish lady who checked us in at Heathrow airport took our hand luggage which was really nice as we could just take care of our wheelchair."
Cons: "BA should consider to serve complementary coffee and tea on board. Such a little thing, but could make a huge difference."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the crew was friendly"
Pros: "Food was ok. That was it."
Cons: "Old aircraft. No leg room. No air con above the seat. Very stingy with drinks. Never again with BA"
Cons: "Knees pressed up against the chair in front. Being tall means an uncomfortable ride. I was not paying £29 for an emergency seat."
Cons: "Flight cancelled and we will miss Christmas Eve Dinner"
Pros: "Good flight, no complaints"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, head rest is adjustable, good leg room, nice entertainment selection and no extra charge for adult beverages!"
Cons: "When we arrived at London Heathrow, there was no gait, no stairs, and no buses to transport passengers to the terminal. We were stuck on the plane for an hour waiting. The crew was helpful in keeping everyone informed and let us know they called the airport staff multiple times for the stairs/buses to get us off and those with connections (me) going. The crew was frustrated too."
Pros: "On time, all the staff were lovely at the terminals and on the plane"
Cons: "All goid"
Pros: "The crew are working really hard to make do with what they have. Exceptional service almost makes up for the dated fleet."
Cons: "Tiny entertainment screens, no USB, really BA- how long will you keep running these 777’s for?"
Cons: "We were told that those boarding and didn’t need carry on luggage. We went to do so and was told to get in line. When we got in line and up to go on plane, the person (a lady) told us we couldn’t."
Cons: "Never took the fly"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough"
Cons: "British airways is always delayed, I never make my connection, I had to be rescheduled on the way there and on the way home"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seat rock hard. When I pulled the foot rest down the fabric was coming off to reveal years worth of food crumbs. Disgusting. TV screen was tiny. Seemed sort of staff, took them ages to bring food around, toilet was unclean with no toilet roll towards the end of flight."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Movie system frequently had to be rebooted."
Cons: "Canceled for no reason ca"
Pros: "The captain and first officer were extremely courteous and professional . I was impressed at the way the captain managed the delayed departure taking time to brief the passengers at the boarding gate. When we eventually changed planes and moved to another gate to board it all went without a hitch."
Pros: "That was my first experience with the Airbus 380. The plane is an excellent ship and the takeoff and landing was surprisingly smooth. Flying is very stable as well. Although it has two decks you are just in one and it looks like any other long distance plane. Seats are a bit narrow but comfortable. Entertainment is individual and plenty of options. Economy cabin is divided in two sections and each section has its own lavatories."
Cons: "The boarding and disembarking operation is never-ending and of course economy class has to wait until business and first -that are considerably large- have completed their getting out. Even with two exits for the two decks it was very slow. On boarding I also noticed that several passengers boarded the wrong deck: nobody but a generic sign was telling them what gate was theirs. With 450 or 500 passengers the chance that something goes wrong increases. In our case a passenger didn't make the connexion and the luggage had to be removed. Food is just fine. Surprisingly the beverage was extremely short of options: just wine or water, no coke or sodas. Same with supper: just coffee, water or juice. The trip was long -9 hours- but no water was offered between meals."
Pros: "Troy was very helpful and entertaining"
Cons: "No white wine"
Cons: "Late BA flight made sure I had to wait 7 hours to catch and EVA air flight. I want my money back. I paid 1000 to flight British Airways not to be crammed on a flight as a show away. Super uncomfortable seat on EVA and a terrible experience. I fell on the plane."
Pros: "The crew are always the bright spot on any BA flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system needs upgrading. Food just average. Seat comfort is better than before but still less comfortable than Asian carriers. Two drunken idiots spoiled a fair portion of the flight."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Full flight affected leaving time + 20 minute taxi to runway"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "I always expect water to be handed out, but I guess this flight was too short so I had to ask for a cup of water. That's all. Not a big deal. They brought me water."
Cons: "I didn't get one of my bags. It was delayed for 2 days"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was at least 15 years old and it did not work in my seat despite numerous attempts to reset. As someone who cannot sleep on flights I was very uncomfortable and annoyed that I had to sit through 12 hours of flying with nothing to watch or listen to."
Pros: "Thai airways much better"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "We hardly had any water. Entertainment systems were very poor and kept breaking. Mine completely broke. Airplane felt old and rickety"
Cons: "Unfortunately I am allergic to all the food they offered .I wish the served a plain chicken or plain turkey.Everything was spicy or mixed with a pesto or curry. They need to something that is served completely plain ."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "A few peoples televisions, including my own, just stopped working midway through the flight. The crew didn't offer us much to drink (like they didn't walk around offering water enough). Also paid extra for seating which we did not get the seats I paid for pretty sure."
Pros: "Flew London to Luxembourg. The menu had a good selection of (cheap!) food. I ordered a sandwich which was surprisingly delicious. Crew was helpful and attentive. No entertainment, but a moving map was provided."
Cons: "No food was provided for free in economy class although we were flying during a typical meal time (11-1:30) American debit card didn't work paying for food, but credit card did"
Pros: "Honestly nothing"
Cons: "The whole flight was disastrous and we Are old gold card holders"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, plane didn't take off for a long time after boarding."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The card machine kept declining my cards for a bag of crisps. Seriously! Money was available on all cards. Got to the airport and purchased crisps and tea with no issue. Flight attendants were nice, but aloof."
Cons: "The space on the seat"
Pros: "Friendly service Delay Notification"
Cons: "Extra cost incurred by delay 5/6 lost time in total"
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Pros: "Nice plane and good food, very nice flight!"
