Cons: "2 hour delay on an hour flight"
Pros: "When I finally settled into my seat on the British Airline and that Hostess came around and offered me a couple of free drinks that was the best thing that happened to me all day."
Cons: "For an older couple like us did not like having to climb the steps up into the Plane and being out in the rain did not help. However that was not the worst part of the arrangement between getting off the Aer Lingus plane and with so little time to reach the gate for our BA flight to Denver it was a total disaster. Due to a minor problem my wife had with her foot I had asked for a wheel-chair to be available when we got off the plane at Heatrow. Good job that I did because with out their help we would never have made it in time for your flight to Denver. Between up and down in elevators, running along the corridors, in and out of a bus and I myself trying to catch up with those poor attendants. I was sorry that I did not get a second wheel chair for my self. Only for the flight was delayed by about 20 minutes we would have missed the flight. Who ever was responsible for making the arrangements of just allowing a time of 1 hour and 10 minutes between flights needs to figure out a better time schedule before people of our age ends up getting stressed out and end up with a heart attack. Very stressful indeed, believe I will never let this happen to me again. Fly/Us you need to fix this."

We had no way of knowing since it was sold by Aer Lingus and had an Aer Lingus flight number. Tried to check in on line, but was unable. Waited for Aer Lingus customer service on telephone customer service for more than one hour and finally just gave up. Aer Lingus has no Customer Service at all.

Pros: "Efficient staff and timely I would book again for sure"
Cons: "The problem I had is that this was not a British Airways flight, nor were my flights to Dublin. I was not aware of this. When I checked in online I was allowed to check in with British Airways, so I had no idea that this was an Aer Lingus flight, which is in a different terminal with a different flight number. My phone didn't work in Ireland so it was extremely difficult figuring out where I should have been. If I was on a different airline that is affiliated with British Airways, and I booked through British Airways, there should be some way of looking up where I should be going. Also, any emails about my trip should have told me which airline I was on. I fly often, and often to other countries. This was the most confusing and difficult flying experience (the entire trip -- getting to and from Dublin) I have ever had."

Cons: "Mobile check-in not an option. Seats not available until check-in without paying. Nothing is complimentary on a rather expensive flight."
Cons: "I'm soooo upset about the service after my flight canceled. 1.the staff ignored me when I asked if I could have a VIP to rebook my tickets earlier because my mom got cancel and was going to do the surge . But he went away and never came back, no any response of YES or NO. 2.I don't know why the airline company still need 11 hours to rebook the tickets with all our flight information and our passport liscen numbers already , making us waiting till 3 am at the airport. 3. I asked my boyfriend to talk to the staff on phone, and the staff told my BF that he didn't know my English was not good. I said to him loudly that I had told him , but the manager besides said "don't shout at my staff"to me, even without asking me what happened . I don't think that was a good attitude for the service department, especially to a foreigner. My email address is Chentongtong@wku.edu.cn"

Cons: "Overcharged for baggage as the BA online baggage payment system was not working."

The seat back of the passenger in front, when reclined, basically trapped me in my seat and made the entertainment screen very hard to see.The crew were efficient but quite rude to the passenger next to me when she hesitated over a meal choice. I will go quite a long way out of my way to avoid traveling on BA in the future, based on this experience."
Cons: "Beverages not included and food only by asking"
Cons: "Butt hurt seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Cons: "Waiting an hour and a half in the customer service line when you make it in time for your flight but they won't let you on your flight two make your connecting flight it was still on the ground they didn't hold it.

AND HAD TO STAY IN LONDON...LASTLY,I HAD UPGRADED MY SEATS TO MAKE MAKES WIFE'S FIRST OVERSEAS TRIP COMFORTABLE....WE WERE SEATED IN BACK OF PLANE...WILL REQUEST MY SEAT MONEY FOR ROUND TRIP BACK..."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours in Athens due to London fog. BA did nothing for passengers with connections. No information given nor attempts to hold connections. Missed our connection by 5 minutes. Could see the airplane pulling out after RUNNING through the airport for 15 minutes to catch it. There were 7 passengers on this connection. This was unacceptable"
Pros: "Their uniforms"
Cons: "The fact that the plane took off more than enough hours late with no communications to the passengers.the collect email and phone number berserk but not once sent any information about the delay when we finally got on the plane, we to wait another 40 minutes because there was only one luggage loader and it was being used on another plane. I even asked a flight attendant if I should speak to someone and she said no because it will "be sorted when we get to London."It wasn't"
Pros: "We were in coach. They would not allow us to take any water on board the plane unless we were in business or first class. Really wierd. This was a night flight, so we slept most of the way.."
Cons: "We had a good experience overall but the food was lousy."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "Service flight crw"
Cons: "Terribly crowded"
Cons: "Even though we had assigned seats we did not get them. Flight was late to depart and really close to lose our connection flight, which for a flight that is less than 1hr you are hoping that should never happen."
Cons: "I have flown the same route 4 weeks earlier with British airways. comfort was much better (seats, food, service) this flight was a huge disappointment and fulfilled the basic need to transportation"
Cons: "Our flights were cancelled without our knowledge. I only found out after calling British Airways. We got the usual 24-hour alert but when I tried to check in online, I could not do it. I had to scramble and spend 40 minutes on the phone from our hotel lobby to finally get the tickets reissued. Two agents assured me that everything was ok. When we arrived at the Dublin Airport, the agents at the BA counter said that there was no record of our tickets being reissued. After furiously typing away for what seemed like forever, one gal finally got us aboard the plane. I purchased the tickets 6 months ago!"
Cons: "There should have been some entertainment on this flight- tv or wifi"
Cons: "It takes a long time to clear security/customs in London."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on time"
Pros: "Flights on time. Food was OK"

Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."
Pros: "Good boarding, very polite. Smooth ride, and plenty of leg room (when no bag under seat in front)."
Cons: "Sitting on the isle, it was extremely cold. The air is from above on the 777, so the isle seats are the ones that receive the coldest air. I couldn't warm up, and didn't want to put on a sweater when it was +35 in Dubai."
Cons: "BA ticket price on Kayak, and possibly on other sites as well, does not disclose that you cannot reserve a seat without paying additional $50 for this normal process. To compare "apples to apples" or prices with other competitive airlines we should add this $50.00 per ticket, but there is no disclosure regarding this "minor" change. I could not do "on-line" checking as well in less than 24-hour prior to the flight time. When I call the agent I received the same answer: you cannot check in now: the system prohibit it. To my surprise I found that most of the passengers, who probably paid this ransom of $50 successfully checked-in. The remaining seats were the most uncomfortable one (middle of the row)."
Pros: "I appreciated the orange express card to help me get through Heathrow"
Cons: "Heathrow was very stressful to get through to my connecting flight. Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "I had to go vegetarian, because they were out of chicken sandwiches. It may sound like a detail, but when you are traveling for 18 hours, and you did not have time for a breakfast, it makes a difference."
Pros: "the crew, food and service was wonderful"
Cons: "getting to the connecting flight was absolutely horrendous!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the crew was excellent."
Cons: "The check-in process at Nice airport was extremely slow and a bit chaotic. The boarding process at the gate was also a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Everything was fine. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything was very organized and very fish and it was a very enjoyable trip."
