Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Crew didn't ask if I wanted to drink anything with the meal. Seemed like a budget flight."
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline..."
Pros: "Gate was super close to the lounge."
Cons: "The security check at the gate requires one to leave the comfort of the lounge early incase of queues and then wait in an over crowded lounge with the other passengers (so the fact you are business/first or have one world status does little to ease the burden of boarding. The lounge also did not offer red eye passengers a meal and the on board meal service is slow (so if you are hungry it eats into precious sleeping time). The breakfast wakeup was also disappointing. My meal of choice was not available and the whole process was rushed like a fast food restaurant. Overall I am disappointed by the club world offering on this route and would not pay for it again unless intended to get on and just sleep for the entire journey."
Pros: "The crew was great and seating an entertainment options were wonderful."
Cons: "Food. Other airlines in Asia have a far better selection of meals."
Pros: "seat was not comfortable as it was economy. staff was decent."
Cons: "friendlier staff, better food options"
Cons: "I did web check in last night. Despite several attempt, I was NOT able to receive email with my boarding pass until I arrive my house in Luxembourg. I was able to board the flight only because I saved pdf file after aforementioned attempt and sent to my email address manually."
Cons: "The TV was not working"
Pros: "Bas crew service since economy. All the time i see bottle of water and when i ask for one the answr js always no bottle will bring a cup and disapear. Crew just allowed people. To stand and have a chit chat outloud next to people trying to sleep. It happened 3 times."
Cons: "Bathroom are so dirty. Windows are dirty. Food tray is dirty. I wonder if a deep cleaning is done everytime the trip is over. Plz upgrade ur planes as well."
Cons: "Male crew who served me on this flight was rude as he threw me the disembarkment cards in a hurry but treated the Caucasian passengers nicely. How snobbish! My family and I will never recommend British Airways to our friends"
Pros: "Friendly staff that helped me change seat after I landed in a middle seat."
Cons: "Food is bad. Did not like it one bit. Entertainment too limited, expected more from BA (particularly in the music area). Feels more.like a budget airline! Maybe London airport problem, but both flights from London (at the start of holiday and at the end) were delayed. Nearly missed my connecting flight to NZ. Overall: Resent experience with BA and London Heathrow airport was to the extend that my future travel won't be with BA nor through London airport."
Pros: "Sydney arrival amazing swift immigration and customs staff polite another step forward Australia"
Cons: "The BREAKFAST wow CHILLED egg and bacon sandwich it may have been delicious in 1956 on an old Viscount but really substandard is an understatement LATE too tight to speed up ie spend more on fuel which increases the stress for me as now we are really close to missing the next leg but praise be - arrival was amazing once we got off the plane see above"
Pros: "The staff was kind"
Cons: "Too many people"
Cons: "At Heathrow, the boarding agents kept calling few passengers without letting the rest of the passengers know what was going on. Also the boarding was delayed without giving specific reason almost 50 min later. Finallly they said the boarding was delayed to catering and cleanning, which I could not believe since the plane has been on a tarmac close to an hour. Passengers were lining up to board, but one of the gate agent kept asking to sit down without giving any reason. Probable one of the worst boarding experience I have ever had in international flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Old aircraft, which wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Overall it was fine. Friendly staff, everything pretty efficient."
Cons: "Truly disappointed to find that BA has decided to charge for ANY beverage whatsoever, even tea. I have such fond memories of flying BA years ago. My husband and I so enjoyed the disposable plastic blue teacups that we brought them home with us and still use them as kitchen scoops all these years later. I know that may seem silly, but even without that nostalgic memory, it just feels SUPER unpleasant to have to pay for the basic (non-alcoholic) beverage service. Honestly, just charge a few bucks extra on the ticket in the first place."
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Cons: "They lost my luggage due to transfer"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Good light supper."
Pros: "The curry was good."
Cons: "LHR-JFK was on an older, more claustrophobic plane. Flight crew had a hard time keeping passengers in check, and there was a lot of yelling. The cabin got quite hot, so we were relieved to get off the plane. Older screens made it difficult to enjoy media."
Pros: "Food was decent and they came back to offer us another drink."
Cons: "Plane was old and dated. No usb or outlets to charge any devices on a 10.5 hour flight. Also seating was small and cramped. I wish there was a way to automatically get an isle seat or emergency row seat if you are over 6ft tall."
Pros: "I think people could entertain themselves but to me it is deplorable to not offer at least complementary water. Complementary coffee would be a nice touch too but at least water."
Pros: "Dinner was quite good. And yes, the seats were comfortable. But the aircraft was probably from the 90's"
Cons: "Entertainment system was really archaic ... No USB slot to charge phones ... Breakfast was ok ok ... not good."
Pros: "No fuss, the cost benifit is perfect for short distances flights"
Cons: "One of the planes was a A321, room for legs was short"
Pros: "The on time arrival"
Cons: "That even non alcoholic drinks costs The gate agent provided misleading information"
Pros: "Lucked out with a pretty empty flight. Food was actually good and there was ice cream which was quite a nice perk."
Cons: "Business class configuration on BA 777"
Pros: "Flew Sydney to Heathrow and was very comfortable in my seat. Seemed wider than most and at 6ft 3 I had plenty of room to move my legs. Pleasantly surprised and actually looking forward to going home next week - just hope its the same 777 plane ! :)"
Cons: "The food was excellent - just not enough of it in between meals. No snacks offered and none that I could find anywhere! Will be making sure to bring some back with me on my flight ! Minor complaint on an otherwise excellent trip."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seats, entertainment system. Lounge at Heathrow airport served bad food. Bread had fungus in it. I pointed out to the staff there, and there reaction was "no big deal" !! There is such a big difference in"
Cons: "The ground crew was very curt and non helpful. Apparently there was a rule that laptops had to be in the checked baggage. The ground crew could have been more courteous with passengers for whom this was a great inconvenience. In my specific case, the person checking me in labelled my bad "Long Stay" instead of "Priority" because they misread the instructions on the computer. The person would not listen to me and would not re-check his potential error....I fly British Airways all the time and that did not seem to make a difference in his demeanor"
Pros: "Flight was early."
Cons: "Didn’t offer water or anything else. Was selling food/drinks."
Cons: "Food just OK. Entertainment system outdated with very small screen. Return delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "It felt as though they had very minimal snacks/food for the trip as we only received one snack towards the end of the trip and one meal and it was an 8 hour flight. When I asked for extra snacks, they said there was none. This ruined my experience for me since I was hungry for most of the flight."
Cons: "I called them for luggage I have I can take 20 3KG in the end in the airport I haw to pay for my language"
Pros: "We arrive twenty minutes early."
Cons: "We lost a half hour because of defective equipment and had to exist the back of the plane on to the runway."
Cons: "The customer service I a disaster. They ripped off my suitcase and I never got a refund despite all my emails nd infos I gave them after the claim done at the airport."
Cons: "No drink"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Check in counter make difficult: my cary on luggage is standard, they should know it."
Pros: "My flight was changed at airport"
Cons: "Barely made flight-- no help offered"
Pros: "The welcome drinks and hot towels (premium economy) are good. As is the drinks trolley before meals. The seats are just OK"
Cons: "Major gripe is seat allocation we had several issues but the worst was being issued with a boarding pass and seats from London to Sydney only to have them changed to inferior seats at Singapore with the ultimatum "sit in the new seats or get off the plane". Excellent for customer relations, we won't be traveling BA again"
Pros: "Fortunately, BA got us on another flight--so our vacation plans weren't totally ruined!"
Cons: "Unfortunately we didn't receive notification that the originally scheduled flight no longer existed. We had paid a higher price to use the regional airport. When attempting to check-in online, there was no flight. The new flight involved a 2 hour drive to a different and added 2 weeks of parking charges that we wouldn't have otherwise had."
Pros: "Qutar flight Nice crew"
Cons: "Late departure One hour wait at border control in heathrow Worst ever wait They are not even trying You should hammer them"
Pros: "The plane ride was excellent and boarding , ... was great. The class is not too crowded."
Cons: "The 8 seats per row in business class is very crowded and the practicality of it is far from optimal. The food is not much of a culinary experience"
Pros: "Check in, flight was on time"
Cons: "The time it takes for getting from 5 to 3. Almost missed my plane on the trip in."
Cons: "Overcharged for baggage as the BA online baggage payment system was not working."
Pros: "Everything that BA is not; excellent crew & food"
Cons: "Everyone was terrible"
Pros: "Usual BA - professional service"
Cons: "I cannot believe you have to pay for your drinks now. The only thing which made BA one of the last remaining "experience" airlines has now made it become like a normal train journey. I'd prefer to pay 10 pounds more in my ticket and still have the impression my drinks, soft or not, are offered."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "The tannoy was difficult to hear at the airport, guess that is not the fault of the airline but it made boarding difficult. Stewardess whizzed past when offering duty free shopping on board."
