In the past year I have flown BA on several flights - three times across the Atlantic along with several domestic flights on the airline. It wasn't always thus - for many years British Airways were too expensive for transatlantic flights - although my very first flight to the US was on BA I...

British Airways. I recently took a trip with British Airways from Gatwick airport to Venice Marco Polo airport and Heathrow to New York and Bangkok. Who are British Airways? British Airways is the National carrier of the United Kingdom although some might say after the ethnic painting of the tail...

ProGood prices, on-line check-in

ConsHot cabin, poor quality food

When I first heard there was a possibility of going to Sydney, I started digging around to find out what flights were available, and the likely prices. At that point, BA had an offer on for £448 return, unfortunately, I had to wait for permission from my line manager, and by the time this had...

ConsNone (apart from Heathrow)

As part of my job, I have to do a fair bit of travelling. 2 years ago I did 5 continents! Last year wasn’t too good, as most of my travel was driving in Europe. Anyway this year I have had to do rather a lot of work in various places, so I have quite a lot of return flights around Europe. I now...

“Fat cats get the cream”

published 24/07/2001

ProReasonable levels of service

ConsCost and timekeeping

British Airways is the World's Favourite Airline? How can they get away with this claim? Surely this is marketing hype in the extreme. Maybe its favourite airline not to travel on, favourite airline to slag off, favourite airline to arrive late, favourite airline for masochists who enjoy being...

“BA - Blooming Awful”

published 13/01/2003

ProWide variety of destinations

ConsDirty plane, broken seats, bad service in the air

Recently we tried out British airways after a gap of over 10 years, (had a bad experience then) We flew from Longhaul as it was the only airline flying non stop direct to our destination. Check in was great as we checked in over the internet before leaving for the airport, We had to queue for...

Until quite recently I flew weekly from London to Copenhagen, and back. At first, as a patriotic Brit, I wanted to use BA. Then I realised it offered me nothing. SAS is much better... (All these comments relate to trips to and from Copenhagen). First as a holder of discounted economy tickets I...

ConsRelish

Poor old British Airways, no longer enjoying the position of Brits first choice for air travel. It all seems to have gone downhill for them since Thatcher tried to cover their modern art tail design with a hanky she produced from her gigantic bag. I don't know why she didn't just concentrate and...

“BA = Brilliant Airline”

published 13/07/2009

ProA long list of superlatives

ConsNot always the cheapest

*A touch of class* Looking at some of the comments raised in earlier reviews for British Airway and the surprisingly low average rating given to them by fellow reviewers, I can't help but wonder whether we're thinking about the same company. My experiences of BA have been, for the most part...

“London to Barcelona.”

published 10/05/2004

ProFriendly service, cheap flight, got there!

ConsIberia-operated sardine can on the return leg!

I flew BA from Heathrow to Barcelona (BA 482, Euro Traveller) with four friends last September. Being rather impoverished students, we booked via BA's website at £100 each, including taxes. This would be the first time I'd flown since going to Indoenisia in 1997 at the tender age of 14, and...

British Airways boast themselves for "defining 21st Century Air Travel” with a range of new products and services. And whilst BA is indeed a very innovative airline, it still hasn't invented the right medicine against its greatest flaws: wrong focus and bad attitude. And bad taste, I should add...

ConsUsually more expensive than other airlines.

British airways (BA) has been a constant staple of mine whenever I have to travel to various parts of the world. Usually I would purchase tickets based on price but if its a difference of just a couple of tens of dollars, I would pick BA. I have several reasons for doing so. First, I get frequent...
