“Booking a holiday through British Airways with Hotel”

Written on: 28/01/2015 by Francinemaguire (1 review written)

I have been trying to extend a holiday I booked through British Airways since 7th January. As I couldnt get through on the telephone after a very lengthy hold, I emailed them. I recieved a reply on 26th January telling me they want me to call. I did this and have been holding on for 26 minutes now still no one has spoken to me or indeed answered the line. I am just listening to music all the time. I am about to hang up now as it is just ridiculous. Apparently if you want to alter… Read Full Review

“BA Money grabbing airline”

Written on: 03/01/2015

Booked Business Class return via tour operator - London - Buenos Aires. Had to return early as cruise to Antarctica cancelled due to engine trouble. No Business Class seats on earlier flight for three days. BA wanted to charge me over £1000 to downgrade me to economy!!!!! Can you believe that. Flew back instead with Air Europe to Gatwick via Madrid arranged by tour operator. On outward flight on BA no water, had to flush toilet with bottled water. We received by email some time later a £75… Read Full Review

“What a joke”

Written on: 21/12/2014 by Dixon120 (1 review written)

A complete and utter joke. I have travelled extensively with BA and keep doing so for some inexplicable reason. They are consistently late by at least an hour, normally more. I travel club Europe and the service is so inconsistent I sometimes would rather travel easyjet. Staff are old and rude and more concerned about surviving upto their final salary pension scheme than anything else. Such a poor standard of service, no real difference between club Europe and economy, I am going to fly… Read Full Review

“Never fly British Airways”

Written on: 12/12/2014 by Sindhurajaramji (1 review written)

First of all to start with the booking.. i used a 3rd party site to book my trip from Bangalore to San Francisco and my return journey. Booking through that site was pretty easy. I was disappointed that i had to pay extra to choose my seats. So i had to wait until the day before we flew.. to checkin online and choose my seats. Our 1st lag from BLR to LHR (Heathrow) was ok. We liked the fact that the seats were comfortable compared to a few other airlines like cathay.. Temperature control -… Read Full Review

“Good qualty, some things must be improved”

Written on: 11/12/2014 by Paul_8 (2 reviews written)

I was flying LHR-HKG, B777, business class.The backward/forward facing seats made some awkward intimacy situations. IFE was excellent with a large, good quality screen and an extensive library of films and TV. Drinks and service were both very good, British Airways offer a very efficient and professional service although it is not always overtly friendly. BA do need to improve their catering on board in order to compete better with other airlines. … Read Full Review

“Awful long flight”

Written on: 24/11/2014 by Elojjy (1 review written)

Traveled on the London - Singapore BA0011 on 14 Nov 2014, 19h. - Long >12h flight with no legroom as seats immediately facing the wall. - Extremely small and shaking TV screens (those you pull up and down) - Loud stewards / staff which prevented me from sleeping during what was a night flight. In summary, no leg room, impossible to sleep, impossible to watch TV for a long 12h flight! … Read Full Review

“Worst Flight EVER ! Never British airway Again !”

Written on: 21/11/2014 by GWang (1 review written)

Having traveled with many other much better carriers as a British citizens I am ashamed of the Poor quality of 'service', British airways provides. 1. I Arrived early as usual approx 3 hours prior to flight to get my tickets the mature female (blond haired) ‘ticket lady was busy making conversation with a BA flight attendant and ignored me despite waiting for her for approx 10 minutes plus. I felt totally humiliated, she saw and heard me waiting and totally disregarded me there. 2. Once… Read Full Review

“Couldn't do more”

Written on: 18/11/2014 by richardjbaker (1 review written)

I am not a regular BA user but always use them going to the USA. Get your flights in the sale and you get a bargain. The service is great, the staff are very good etc etc what you expect from an national flyer. What made BA standout more was in my hour of need (my mother had 3 days to live) the pulled out all the stops and transferred my flights when it mattered most. I had a 15 nights tour of California booked starting and finishing in San Francisco, after 6 days I had to get home… Read Full Review

“Getting VERY dated”

Written on: 06/10/2014 by Bishopjh149 (1 review written)

Truly awful partnership with Vueling.. Travelled from Barcelona to Gatwick this Sunday. Booked via British Airways and they need to review this arrangement, as neither BA nor Vueling accept responsibility for issues. Flew with family, myself, pregnant partner (6 months) and 10 month old daughter. Vueling separated our seats, one end of plane and other... Would not allow changes online, would not allow change at airport as I was told flight was overbooked, asked desk to note request to be… Read Full Review

“Overbooked flight”

Written on: 06/10/2014

Four of us flew BA to Bari in Italy on the return flight they had over sold the seats!!! So my husband and I did not get on the plane home. However they booked us on another flight later to Rome and we changed there to fly back to Heathrow sadly our flight from Bari to Rome was late so our luggage did not make the connecting flight. I was most impressed at how well we were looked after and the polite way the staff dealt with us, Our suitcases arrived via a carrier to our home two days later… Read Full Review

“Broken seat not discovered until takeoff. No follow-up.”

Written on: 09/08/2014 by Rozelle (1 review written)

On a flight from London Heathrow to Tel Aviv it was discovered that my wife's seat was broken and could not recline. Since she wears an orthopedic brace on her left leg and there wasn't another seat available in any cabin she suffered through it. She later received a random email customer service survey, answered it and got no response. Same with a letter sent via postal mail to the company CEO. We are giving up our Chase BA credit card and trying never to fly BA again!… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/07/2014 by SHodge (1 review written)

On May 27, 2014 my partner and I were booked and payed for the extra space on the exit row on our trip back to Brazil. We we are Brazilians and visit the UK every year, flying BA. I am also a British Citizen and have a passport but, as my partner is not, I prefer to travel on my Brazilian passport. We were the first to check in on the morning of May 27 and were at the gate 40min prior to our flight. When, at last, we were called to board the British Airways personnel told us we had been… Read Full Review

Wreckedmylife's Response to SHodge's Review

Written on: 25/08/2014

You have my sympathy. It is breath -taking the way some of their staff treat others. Have been on the receiving end before of such service and it seems we are supposed to be grateful they gave us any attention at all!!! The whole point was to get away from people just like them who had made my life a misery for nearly a year. Burst my happy balloon on the way out to our holiday and I never recovered thanks to severe stress levels. Still have post traumatic stress.
